Permanently Ban the Sale of Ivory

Government by Goldman Sachs

Greedy Banks

Le Monde's editorialist: "Pretending that nothing had happened.... As though the global crisis they provoked weren't daily dragging along with it its cortege of social dramas, human tragedies and economic routs, banks are reviving yesterday's practices. The practices of a pre-crisis world."

Bait and Switch: How the "Public Option" Was Sold

Kip Sullivan, Physicians for a National Health Program: "The people who brought us the 'public option' began their campaign promising one thing but now promote something entirely different. To make matters worse, they have not told the public they have backpedalled. The campaign for the 'public option' resembles the classic bait-and-switch scam: tell your customers you've got one thing for sale when in fact you're selling something very different."

US Continues to Train Honduran Soldiers at School of Americas

Amy Goodman, Democracy Now!: "While the European Union cut off aid to the coup regime in Honduras, the United States continues the money flow, and while the US says it has cut military ties, the National Catholic Reporter reveals Honduran army officers are still receiving military training at the notorious School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia."


The Honduran coup and the Clinton connection

by Justin Raimondo

[W]hile the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama has officially taken the position that the coup is illegitimate and President Manuel ‘Mel’ Zelaya must be restored to office, there are hints that the U.S. is playing both sides of the fence — and even tilting toward the coup leaders. When Zelaya announced that he would cross the border between Honduras and Nicaragua on foot and called on his supporters to gather, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denounced him as ‘reckless.’ Which led Zelaya to ask, in effect, which side is she on? Good question, and the answer is she’s on Lanny Davis’ side. Davis, you’ll recall, was her chief attack dog during the presidential primary campaign, and now he’s sold his services to the Honduran branch of CEAL, the Central American business alliance, which supports the coup...

NVIC Calls On Obama Administration To Provide Swine Flu Vaccine Evidence

Obama’s disappointing secrecy

Cato Institute
by Benjamin H. Friedman


The Obama administration promised an ‘unprecedented level of openness in government.’ The White House website says that citizens have a right to know what their government is doing and that accountability makes government more effective. That’s absolutely right. In some areas, such as the liberalization of policy on Freedom of Information Act requests, the administration has embraced this principle. Disappointingly though, the administration’s commitment to openness and accountability does not extend to intelligence activities...

Constitutional tyranny

Campaign For Liberty
by Mark Lerner


The Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee met July 15th to hear testimony regarding the Real ID Act 2005 and the newly introduced Providing for Additional Security in States’ Identification (’PASS’) Act. Senator Lieberman is the Chairman of the committee. As you will see, the ‘fix’ was in. For two weeks the Stop Real ID Coalition, of which I, Mark Lerner, am the co-founder, had lobbied to provide testimony to the committee. Thousands of our supporters called the committee on our behalf...

Have government deficits “saved the world?”

Foundation for Economic Education
by William Anderson


Last week, I wrote about the crudeness of so-called Keynesian economic theory in which one assumes that all assets and capital ‘investment’ are ‘homogeneous’ in character, which means that their only contribution to the economy is from the money that is spent in their creation and continued operation. This view contrasts with the Austrian paradigm, which emphasizes the structure of production within an economy and the unsustainability of capital that is malinvested during a boom. Unfortunately, too many people in high places are prone to believe what on its face is unbelievable: running huge federal deficits somehow is a good thing for the economy...

How to argue against torture

by Bernard Chazelle


Anti-torture voices have been left sounding defensive, insecure, incoherent. Yet, while boasting the world’s highest incarceration numbers and supermax prisons characterized by a warden as a ‘clean version of hell,’ the US has also begun to question its tolerance of torture. The debate is on, and torture is winning. I intend here to lay the foundation for a strong, cogent anti-torture position. It rests upon three principles: Torture is always wrong; Torture must be banned by law unconditionally; Not all torture decisions should be morally codified...

States Where the Unemployed Are Giving Up

In some U.S. states, nearly half of the job seekers who have stopped looking for work have done so because they simply don't believe they'll find anything. Indeed, the number of discouraged workers nationwide has more than doubled in the past year.

The Hidden History of 9/11

Interview with Paul Zarembka

How much insider trading occurred in the days leading up to 9/11? How compromised is the evidence against alleged hijackers because of serious authentication problems with a key Dulles Airport videotape? To what extent does the testimony of more than five hundred firefighters differ from official reports of what happened at the World Trade Center buildings that day? How inseparably connected are Western covert operations to al-Qaeda?

The NSA Is still Listening to You

By James Bamford

This summer, on a remote stretch of desert in central Utah, the National Security Agency will begin work on a massive, 1 million-square-foot data warehouse. Costing more than $1.5 billion, the highly secret facility is designed to house upward of trillions of intercepted phone calls, e-mail messages, Internet searches and other communications intercepted by the agency as part of its expansive eavesdropping operations.

The Coup and the U.S. Airbase in Honduras

Zelaya, Negroponte and the Controversy at Soto Cano

By Nikolas Kozloff

The mainstream media has once again dropped the ball on a key aspect of the ongoing story in Honduras: the U.S. airbase at Soto Cano, also known as Palmerola. Prior to the recent military coup d'etat President Manuel Zelaya declared that he would turn the base into a civilian airport, a move opposed by the former U.S. ambassador. What's more Zelaya intended to carry out his project with Venezuelan financing.

Following the money trail in the Honduran coup

By Bill Conroy

Today's junta-enablers no longer have to work in secret. In fact, illegal usurpers can now shop openly in Washington for a hired gun of their choosing to grease the wheels of Congress and commerce to assure their coup d'état remains a fait accompli.
