Senator Recommends Palin's Husband Be Held in Contempt

Home Alaska Senator Recommends Palin's Husband Be Held in Contempt 
by Jason Leopold
The way in which the McCain-Palin campaign has managed the two-month-old investigation is reminiscent of the stonewalling tactics the Bush administration has employed for nearly two years with regard to a congressional investigation into the White House’s role in the firing of nine U.S. attorneys, which appears to have been carried out because the federal prosecutors were disloyal to the president.
Alaska Sen. Hollis French recommended Friday that Gov. Sarah Palin's husband, Todd Palin, and two state officials, be held in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena involving a state sanctioned investigation into allegations the governor improperly fired her top law enforcement official in July.

Troops fer der Homeland

Brigade Homeland Tour Begins Oct. 1
via CLG
Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1 for deployment during 'civil unrest,' 'horrific scenarios' [The 'horrific scenario' of the 2nd American Revolution after a third stolen 'election?']. The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle.
Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or man(Bush)-made emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.
This new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom. They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

How the Rules Have Changed

Wall Street and Washington: How the Rules of the Game Have Changed
by Steve Fraser
What is Washington to do as the financial system collapses? Clearly, stark differences in approach as well as in public policy have already emerged. Bail-out Bear Stearns and pump up the brokerage and investment business with new lines of credit.
Nationalize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on the backs of the taxpayer -- but let Lehman drown. Tell the financial community to save itself, after which Bank of America salutes and buys Merrill Lynch. Then, the Fed gets cold feet and decides it can't let an institution the size of the insurance giant AIG go under as well. Washington is left staring into the abyss.
The old rules no longer apply.

And that's the point.

More Evidence of Police Criminality at RNC

by Glass Bead Collective
Video released today shows the indiscriminate arrest of a crowd of two hundred at the waterfront across from a concert on Harriet Island Regional Park during this month's Republican National Convention in St. Paul.
The video includes multiple angles of the event as well as an interview with the cameraman who buried his footage and was one of almost two hundred people arrested for rioting without probable cause.

Do Mess with the Zohan

Messing with the Zohan
by Gilad Atzmon
“You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” is a new American comedy film. It tells the story of Zohan Dvir (Adam Sandler), the IDF’s Number 1 counter-terrorism killing machine who has simply grown tired of his military murderous engagement. At a certain stage, he fakes his own death while in action in order to pursue his real dream: that of becoming a hairstylist in NYC.

The film was anything but praised by the critics. The Sun gave the film one star and wrote:
“the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine isn’t exactly the obvious choice of topic for a comedy – which is perhaps why this film is about as funny as a suicide bombing.”
“By the end,” wrote Christopher Tookey of the Daily Mail, “I felt as though I had been carpet-bombed by comedy’s answer to Vladimir Putin. But, on second thought, Putin is funnier."

Small Victories on a Bare Mountain

Small Victories
by Zoe Blunt
For almost two years, we've documented and publicized the impact of Bear Mountain development on wetlands, rare species, watercourses, recreation sites and First Nations heritage. As a result, land-use decisions on southern Vancouver Island now face greater demands for due diligence on environmental preservation and democratic accountability, among other long-term effects of the campaign.
We'd also like to note recent fallout affecting the interchange, First Nations sites, and future resort development.

Labour Lights Up In Iraq

The Labor Movement in Iraq is Standing Strong Against the Puppet Government
by Akram Nadir (Union Organizer in Iraq/Kurdistan) FWCUI International Rep.
Thousands of electricity workers took to the street on September 16, 2008 in Firdaws Square in Baghdad in a demonstration called and led by General Federation of workers Councils and Unions in Iraq (GFWCUI) represented by Subhi Albadry, President of GFWCUI and Labor Movement Unifying Bureau represented by Hassan Juma, president.

This event came as a result of the current situations of the infrastructure (electricity that is given to people about one hour a day in particular).

The Contemptible Mr. Rove

Urge Congress to Vote Contempt for Rove
by Don Siegelman
Thousands of friends have already signed a petition, written, or called Congress, urging them to hold Karl Rove in contempt.  Thank you so much for speaking out! Now that a U.S. District Judge has ruled that White House aides like Rove can't claim immunity in order to refuse to testify before Congress, there's no room for Karl Rove to hide any longer -- but our time is running out.  If Congress adjourns at the end of September without holding Karl Rove in contempt, our chances at restoring democracy may very well be kaput.
So now we must pull out all the stops and turn up the heat.

That's why I'm asking you to call and write your Member of Congress and urge the full House to vote to hold Karl Rove in contempt.

My Brother-in-Law's Keeper: Palin's Real Scandal Problem

Palin Claims Right to See All State Files
by Jason Leopold
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is maneuvering to stop an investigation into an alleged abuse of power, in part, by claiming that she has an unlimited right to pry into the personnel records of all state employees, including the state trooper who divorced her sister.

Palin’s new position was summed up in a Sept. 9 letter from Alaska Attorney General Talis Colberg to the state legislature, which has authorized an independent counsel probe into whether Palin and her staff illegally accessed confidential personnel records of her ex-brother-in-law, state trooper Mike Wooten.

Escaping the Economic Black Hole

Escaping the Black Hole
by dd jango
Recently, many very smart people became very scared about the start-up of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. They're afraid that the collider's activities will cause the creation of a black hole and, well, bye-bye Earth. The machine has been on-line for a short while now; no black hole yet. Maybe later.

I am certainly not either a quantum physicist or an astronomer. But I think it goes like this: as a star dies, it collapses in on itself, creating a mass with such enormous gravity as to suck in everything near it, including light. Scary, I agree. Instead of worrying about the LHC's potential for such an event, however, we would do well to turn our concern to an existing vortex - American presidential and other national-level politics.
