Bottom Fishing in Sharbot Lake

Slimy “Bottom Feeder” Caught in Sharbot Lake
by Kahentinetha Horn
The phoney “Algonquin” protest to stop a uranium mine  at Robertsville, near Sharbot Lake, has started up again.   The original protest encampment at the mine gates started last summer.  It’s one hour north of Kingston Ontario.  Chief Doreen Davis of “Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nation”, Robert Lovelace of “Ardoch Algonquins” and six other people face charges in mid February for contempt of court and a $77 million lawsuit launched by Frontenac Ventures Corp.  

The land in question is the area south of the Ottawa River which is part of Haudenosaunee Territory of the Mohawk Nation.  The “Algonquin” visitors are claiming this land and trying to make a settlement with Ontario and Canada.

No More Clintons?

“Not Another Clinton” Sign Disallowed at Event
by Kurt Nimmo
It’s not just the neocons at George Bush events that go after Americans who disagree. Same thing happens at “liberal” Clinton events, as the video here demonstrates.
 
Once upon a time, under the now moribund First Amendment, we had the right to disagree, so long as we didn’t hurt anybody or prevent them from doing likewise.
 
No more. Now if you are out of step with the brainwashed and orchestrated zombies, dare to remove yourself from the stampede toward fascism and insanity, you are quickly ushered from the room, lest some impressionable person in the fawning crowd gets the idea all is not right with the picture.

Media Language and War

Media Language and War: Manufacturing Convenient Realities
by Ramzy Baroud
In the competitive world of media today, swift and conveniently selective reporting is of prime importance. Google News, for example, claim to scan 4,500 news sources, of which only a few are highlighted as main stories. There are thousands of similar services, all competing to produce a story in the fastest time. Thorough - and thus slower - reporting is relegated and crucial information often appears too little too late.

The Iraq story, which has occupied a huge proportion of headline news for years, serves as a good example of this.

Does The Brownshirt Party Have Aces?

Does The Brownshirt Party Have Aces Up Its Sleeve?
by Paul Craig Roberts
The Brownshirt Party has chosen John “hundred year war” McCain as its presidential candidate. Except for Cheney, Norman Podhoretz, and billy kristol, McCain is America’s greatest warmonger.

In a McCain Regime, Cheney will be back in office with another stint as Secretary of War. Norman “Bomb-bomb-bomb-Iran” Podhoretz will be Undersecretary for Nuclear War with General John “Nuke them” Shalikashvili as his deputy.
 
Rudy Giuliani will be the Minister of Interior in charge of Halliburton’s detention centers into which will be herded all critics of war and the police state. billy kristol will be chief White House spokesliar.

The whole gang will be back--Wolfowitz, Perle, Wurmster, Feith, Libby, Bolton. America will have a second chance to bomb the world into submission.

Democrat! Grassroots and the Party, 1964 and 2008

A New Moment?
The Grassroots and the Party, 1964 and 2008
by Laura Flanders
The swirl of the primary season is intoxicating and the media love it. If the ratings records set by the recent political debates are any indication, the ongoing primary battle may yet save cable TV.
 
"Super Tuesday" -- the night that was supposed to wrap everything up -- didn't (for either party). Clearly, this extended nomination contest is getting people excited, but will that excitement translate into substantive change -- for Democrats in particular? The past offers some hard-knocks lessons worth thinking about.

Bill C-3 Sails Through the House

Bill C-3 Sails Through the House
by C. L. Cook 
These are odious days to be a Canadian: The country fighting a shooting war halfway around the world for reasons few paying for the killing understand, the long tradition of peacemaking and peacekeeping a distant memory; political parties on both sides of the aisle of the House of Commons sharing in common the desire to continue Canada down a course determined from beyond the border; more military, more fighting, more killing; ruled over by an imperious minority government that thumbs its nose at the citizenry, confident the "opposition" will nary oppose; citizens turned over to torturers, war resisters and political refugees refused sanctuary and sent packing; wars on crime and drugs brought home to accompany those fought far away; no comment made on war crimes committed by allies, though their victims be Canadian; and now the passing breezily through the Parliament of Bill C-3, or the so-called Security Certificates, a newly improved 'Anti-terror' bill that would deny Canadians the presumption of innocence, an open trial, the right to know one's accusers and to equal access to evidence presented against you; just as its predecessor terror legislation, quashed last year by the Supreme Court of Canada as unconstitutional, did.
 
That bit of bad fish is due thrown out for good at month's end, an excuse the Liberals have been quick to claim countenances their leader's tactical retreat on the notion of universal Justice in favour of political expediency.

Bringing Terror to the Election Table

Injecting 'Terror' into Campaign 2008
by Robert Parry
As Campaign 2008 reaches a critical point, George W. Bush’s top intelligence officials are raising new alarms about a revitalized al-Qaeda recruiting Westerners, possibly including Americans, to carry out terror attacks inside the United States.

At a Feb. 5 hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Bush’s Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell said al-Qaeda was refining “the last key aspect of its ability to attack the U.S.” by training Western recruits, who could blend in with American society and carry out attacks on U.S. targets.

In a later interview with the New York Times, an unnamed “senior intelligence official” added that these Westerners – “most likely including American citizens” – were undergoing training at al-Qaeda camps in Pakistan, though the official added there was no evidence that the operatives had yet reached the United States.

Why There is no "Hope" for "Change"

MoveOn’s Obama Endorsement
by Joshua Frank
MoveOn is mobilizing. The “antiwar” group’s Political Action members across the country voted overwhelmingly to endorse the Democratic candidacy of Barack Obama last week.
 
MoveOn claims to have 1.7 million members in states that vote in Tuesday’s primaries. “[Our] endorsement means a fresh infusion of people-power for Obama in the critical days before Super Tuesday,” read the organization’s press release. “MoveOn will immediately connect thousands of progressive activists into the Obama” volunteer operation.

Criminal Intent: America's Air War over Baghdad

Criminal Intent: Behind the Latest Baghdad Bombing        
by Chris Floyd     
If the latest mass-murdering market bombing in Iraq was indeed caused by using two women with Down syndrome (or otherwise mentally impaired) as the bomb carriers, then it was a particularly heinous act. (Of course, all terrorist attacks -- such as dropping 40,000 pounds of bombs in just 10 minutes on the Iraqi town of Arab Jabour, as American forces did last month -- are heinous, inhuman war crimes.)

But given the extensive, relentless "psychological operations" that the Pentagon runs in Iraq (and against the American people), and given the vast number of brazen lies and false stories that have long flooded the media throughout the "war on terror" -- and given that the gang in charge of Washington now is essentially the same one that used a professional PR firm to peddle the "Iraqis pulling babies from incubators" story to help sell the first Gulf War -- the reports about the identities and mental states of the alleged suicide bombers in Baghdad's al-Ghazl pet market should be taken with several truckloads of salt, until such time as they can be verified by independent sources.

NATO's Quagmiristan

NATO's Afghan Quagmire
by Patrick Seale
NATO -- the North Atlantic Treaty Organization -- is the world’s most powerful military alliance. It has two million men under its command, a thousand helicopters and countless other military resources. Yet it is facing failure, if not actual defeat, in Afghanistan. Why?

The answer is simple. The Afghan war was misconceived from the very start. It was decided in rage and haste by Washington, without proper thought or planning, in response to al-Qaida’s 11 September 2001 attacks on the United States.

Mad Money: Creative Destruction

MEDIA ALERT: 'Creative Destruction' - The Madness of the Global Economy
by Media Lens
Watching the corporate media report the 'financial crisis' is instructive. From the perspective of power, it is important that a steadying hand is applied to the tiller of news and commentary on the crisis, and the global economy itself.

And so columnist Martin Wolf took a 'measured' view in the Financial Times. There have been 100 "significant" banking crises in the past thirty years, he noted, making them almost routine. Authorities have had to intervene to "rescue" the US financial system from four crises over that period: the developing country debt and also the "savings and loan" crises of the 1980s; the commercial property crisis of the early 1990s; and now the subprime and credit crisis of 2007-08.
 
As Wolf observed correctly of the banking sector: "No industry has a comparable talent for privatising gains and socialising losses."
