Inside the Bush Bubble

Inside American Royalty's Security Bubble
by Mike Ferner
The First Family Security Bubble was nearly pried open for a moment last Friday; but in the end Disneyland remained blessedly undisturbed.

On a particularly warm spring evening, Laura and Jenna Bush alighted from a squadron of black SUVs at the Borders book store in downtown Washington, D.C., right on schedule at 7:00 pm.  Flanked by Secret Service agents, they went inside to an area set up for authors to sign books – yes, sign books.  The two Bush women have co-authored a 32-page children’s book, “Read All About It,” the story of Tyrone, a youngster who is good at everything in school but reading.

In line to have her copy signed, and more importantly, to get a moment to deliver a letter to the authors, waited Gilda Carbonaro, the mother of a U.S. Marine Sergeant who died a quite terrible death in Iraq.

The Stephen Harper govt. has tentatively approved a plan by Parks Canada to shoot thousands of nesting Double-crested Cormorants at Middle Island, Point Pelee National Park beginning as early as next week – April 29, 2008.

They plan to reduce the vibrant and historical colonial waterbird colony by 90%, possibly killing as many as 7500 birds in the first week of May.

Selling the Petraeus Story

Selling the President's General: The Petraeus Story
by Tom Engelhardt
You simply can't pile up enough adjectives when it comes to the general who, at a relatively young age, was already a runner-up for Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2007.
 
His record is stellar. His tactical sense extraordinary. His strategic ability, when it comes to mounting a campaign, beyond compare.

I'm speaking, of course, of General David Petraeus, the President's surge commander in Iraq and, as of last week, the newly nominated head of U.S. Central Command (Centcom) for all of the Middle East and beyond -- "King David" to those of his peers who haven't exactly taken a shine to his reportedly "high self-regard." And the campaign I have in mind has been his years' long wooing and winning of the American media, in the process of which he sold himself as a true American hero, a Caesar of celebrity.

The Responsibility to Protect Israel's Citizens

The Responsibility to Protect Israel's Citizens
by C. L. Cook
In the winter of 2001, while the ruins of the World Trade Center still smoldered in New York City, the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty, adjunct to the United Nations and chaired by Canada, issued a controversial position paper that came to be known as 'The Responsibility to Protect.'
 
The R2P is a doctrine that seeks to "justify" third party interventions within sovereign states that are deemed "failed," that is to say the national government no longer possesses either the will or ability to safeguard the basic rights of the citizenry.

When Citizenship Counts: Canadian Census Ministry Tyranny

63 Canadians Being Prosecuted over Refusal to Cooperate with Census Outsourced to Lockheed Martin
by Sandra Finley
I am looking for 62 other Canadians (myself making 63) who are being prosecuted because they refused to comply with the 2006 Census.  Much of the boycotting was because of the "out-sourcing" to Lockheed Martin (equivalent to "the American Military" - and a corrupt corporation with a court record to prove it.  I'm sure you know more about it than I do.)
 
Listen to Sandra this week on Gorilla Radio
We are trying different avenues to obtain the complete list of people being prosecuted. Would you mind checking with your network to see if any one of them have received a Summons to appear in Court?

Steps Towards Change

Simple Steps Towards Change
by Mickey Z.
Whenever I write an article or give a talk about the state of global affairs, the first question asked is this: “So, what can/should we do?” My inevitably stammering reply involves a combination of three factors:

*What we’ve been doing all along is obviously not working

*We need new ideas, new tactics, and a far greater commitment from everyone

*I can’t say more because it could be (purposely) misconstrued and that just don’t fly in the land of the free (sic).

With Respect to Journalists Covering 'Indigenous Issues'

With Respect to Journalists Covering 'Indigenous Issues' 
by Shelley Bluejay Pierce
Dear Mr. Taylor; I was compelled today, to respond to your media coverage and the public commentary on the Native issues surrounding the disputes currently active in Ontario. 

As a journalist covering Indigenous issues worldwide, I see similar situations and conflicts between Native and non-Native peoples in every country across the globe. However, I have been an active media supporter to the people of Six Nations since day one of their occupation in Caledonia. My support has continued to expand so that issues at Tyendinaga, Attawapiskat and other reserves are also part of my normal coverage.

Glad Embrace: America and the Dictator

New Terror War Atrocity: Beheading the Innocent for Bush in Somalia        
by Chris Floyd     
Earlier this week, we noted reports that Ethiopian invaders in Somalia had killed several moderate clerics and other unarmed people in a mosque north of Mogadishu during the recent bloody reprisals against civilian areas launched by the Bush-backed invaders and their Somali allies. At the time, sketchy reports from the BBC indicated that at least 10 people had been killed in the mosque.
 
Bush has gladly embraced the Ethiopian dictator Meles Zenawi

Now Amnesty International has charged Ethiopian soldiers with killing 21 people in the mosque -- and slitting the throats of seven of their victims, the Herald-Sun reports.

Boycotting Israel's Rebranded Product

Stopping the Party: Boycotting Israel's Rebranded Product
by Canada Palestine Association
As we approach the 60th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, the Israeli government has announced its plans to “rebrand” its 60 years of dispossession and ethnic cleansing. 
 
Here in B.C., the focus of this “rebranding” is the promotion of wines under an Israeli label in B.C. liquor stores, which are now carrying products from the Galil Mountain Winery, the Golan Heights Winery and the Dalton Winery.

Haiti Group Files Protest Against UN Market Rampage

Protest Brutal Attack on Haitian Street Vendors by UN Soldiers!
by Haiti  Action Committee
On Saturday, April 11th, a little past 3 p.m., a MINUSTAH (UN) soldier, Nigerian Cpl. Nagya Aminu, was shot and killed in downtown Port-au-Prince. While this killing was widely reported in the international media, what followed the killing was not.
 
Bullet holes are visible in this photo from UN assault on Haitian street vendors
 
In the immediate aftermath of the killing, at approximately 3:30 p.m. that same afternoon, MINUSTAH troops launched a massive assault on Haitian vendors at the open-air sidewalk market near the main Cathedral in downtown Port-au-Prince—the area where the soldier had been killed.
