America's War on Working Moms

Shame: The US War Against Unarmed Working Mothers
by Bill Quigley
Is this what our nation has come to? War against unarmed working mothers? Have we no shame?

Dozens of petite young mothers gathered this week in the parking lot outside the US Department of Homeland Security in Gulfport, Mississippi. Each wore a long dress or pants to hide her electronic ankle bracelet. Lift up a pants leg and you can see the black plastic band and monitor, which is the size of a pack of cigarettes. Most wore sandals. Several were obviously pregnant.

From the outside, the building looked like any office park. But a blue Homeland Security flag waved right next to the red white and blue out in front. Inside, the mothers were being interviewed and readied for deportation.

The crime these mothers are charged with? Not guns, not drugs, not spying. Working to put food on the table for their families and not being citizens of the US.

John Graham Murder Charge Thrown Out - New Charge Added

New complaint filed against Canadian in decades-old slaying
by CBC News
U.S. prosecutors filed a new complaint against a Yukon man on Friday, less than two hours after a South Dakota judge dismissed his indictment in the killing of a Nova Scotia woman almost 33 years ago.
John Graham and family

The ruling means John Graham's trial, which was to begin Monday, has been cancelled. But the new complaint will probably send the case before a grand jury again.

Betrayal: HR 1424 Passes House

Betrayal: HR 1424 Passes House
by C. L. Cook
The House passed, and president Bush has signed into law HR 1424, aka the 'Bailout bill,' handing out hundreds of billions of dollars to major banks, Wall St. firms, and foreign investors.
The bill elicited popular outrage last week, which prompted its defeat in the House Monday. The Senate endorsed the revamped bill Wednesday, setting the stage for today's second vote in the House. - lex

Paulson's Plan is a Fraud

Why Paulson's Plan is a Fraud
by Paul Craig Roberts
Is the Paulson bailout itself as big a fraud as the leveraged subprime mortgages?

Yesterday, here on CounterPunch, I discussed the bailout as proposed and noted that the proposal cannot succeed if it impairs the US Treasury’s credit standing and/or the combination of mark-to-market and short-selling permits short-sellers to prosper by driving more financial institutions into bankruptcy.

House Re-votes on Bailout, New Concerns Raised

As House Re-votes on Bailout, New Concerns Raised
by Danny Schechter
How quickly the news frame changes. Discussions of the bailout have given way to speculation about the Palin-Biden debate or NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg's decision to run for a third term.
Even a good old apocalyptic crisis only gets its 15 seconds of fame these days. Today, the House votes again.

A Bill Too Far: Threatening War Measures Should Bailout Fail

House Representative Claims Threat of Martial if Bailout Bill Fails
by C-Span 
California Democratic House representative, Brad Sherman claims he and other members were told martial law would follow a "No" vote on Monday's failed bailout package.
The sky didn't fall as predicted, but the U.S. Senate has broken with normal procedure and rushed a revised package through, leaving an even bigger bailout bill for the House to vote on today.
Again, the bill is touted as a make or break move for the American, and World economy. - lex

Reviewing 'No Innocent Bystanders - Riding Shotgun in the Land of Denial'

Reviewing 'No Innocent Bystander - Riding Shotgun in the Land of Denial' by Mickey Z.
by Joel S. Hirschhorn
It is never easy to communicate wisdom. Even more difficult to do so in an engaging way that makes it very, very easy to read and understand. Mickey Z. has accomplished this difficult task in his new book No Innocent Bystanders.
This book is designed to reach deep into a person’s consciousness, pierce normal psychological defenses, and overcome a lifetime of facile rationalizations. This is a book to inspire a revolution spirit in Americans, the kind needed to achieve what Thomas Jefferson had the wisdom to say our nation would need: a revolution every generation or so.

Iraq: Creating "Paradise" in Hell

Iraq: They Make It a Desert and Call It Peace
by Eric Margolis
Those Wall Street financial alchemists who turned garbage into gold must have helped John McCain prepare for his debate with Barack Obama last Friday.

Senator McCain’s insistent claims that the US is winning the war in Iraq thanks to his "surge" strategy are the military-political equivalent of the junk securities that Wall Street’s shady financiers have been selling around the globe.

McCain successfully peddled this latest untruth about Iraq on Friday night with skill and verve. Sen. Barack Obama mostly let him get away with it.

Somalia's "Rendition" Pipeline

Update: Not a Report on the Bristol Palin-Britney Spears Sex Tape
by Chris Floyd 
Here is a follow-up to yesterday's post about Somalia. The BBC has a report from inside "Africa's Guantanamo," the Ethiopian prison where refugees fleeing the American-backed invasion of Somalia were "renditioned," often with help of U.S. agents.

[Yes, I know that no one cares about this. I know that the fact that thousands of Somalis have been slaughtered and millions more driven into suffering and desolation by a vicious war being conducted at every step with American assistance, in America's name -- in your name, if you're an American -- is not nearly as important as whether or not Joe Biden strikes the proper tone in his "debate" with Sarah Palin tonight. I know that even to most true-blue "progressives," the Somalis are non-people -- except when they show up as wild-eyed beserkers on late-night re-runs of "Black Hawk Down." I know that every time I write about Somalia, the traffic for the site plummets like the stock of a clapped-out merchant bank just before it gets a government bailout. But I don't really care. With the full approval of the entire bipartisan political elite, America is breeding death, hate, extremism and a hellish storm of blowback through its actions in Somalia. You might not give a damn that this evil is being wrought in your name, but I do. So here's more.]
