And Shall it be the Law of the Town? Arresting George W. Bush

And Shall it be the Law of the Town? Arresting George W. Bush
by C. L. Cook
What if it's as easy as that; what if stopping the horrors we, the whole of humanity, have witnessed in the person of George W. Bush and his extra-legal operatives these past seven years could be as simple as that? 
Kurt Daims
 
Seven long years; is that not enough suffering endured to atone any sin; long enough to have an end to torment? Kurt Daims of Brattleboro, Vermont thinks so, so he's taking the notion to council of a war crimes indictment, to be sworn out against Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney should they happen by the township.

Spying Incorporated

Domestic Spying, Inc.
by Tim Shorrock
A new intelligence institution to be inaugurated soon by the Bush administration will allow government spying agencies to conduct broad surveillance and reconnaissance inside the United States for the first time.
 
Under a proposal being reviewed by Congress, a National Applications Office (NAO) will be established to coordinate how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and domestic law enforcement and rescue agencies use imagery and communications intelligence picked up by U.S. spy satellites.
 
If the plan goes forward, the NAO will create the legal mechanism for an unprecedented degree of domestic intelligence gathering that would make the U.S. one of the world's most closely monitored nations.

Bush in Your Bedroom

Bush in Your Bedroom: Top Ten Worst Appointees for Reproductive Rights (so far… )      
by Heather Wokusch
Bush has used his Oval Office years to limit reproductive freedom and stack critical posts with right-wingers bent on rolling back the clock.

And now it appears yet another reactionary Bush appointee is on track to get a lifetime position as a federal judge...
 
"On September 11, we saw clearly that evil exists in this world, and that it does not value life ... Now we are engaged in a fight against evil and tyranny to preserve and protect life."

– George W. Bush in 2002, linking abortion rights with terrorism, as he declared the 29th anniversary of Roe v. Wade to be "National Sanctity of Human Life Day."

New York Times on Kristol (meth?)

The Gray Lady Gives Bill Kristol and New Lease on Life
by Kurt Nimmo
It’s the height of mediocrity. No, scratch that. It’s a prime example of the continuing effort to push the false right-left paradigm.

Bill Kristol, neocon wunderkind, is now a “conservative” voice over at the New York Times. Paul Mulshine, writing for NJ.com, gets it right. “Kristol is in fact a neoconservative,” he declares, although this is also a misrepresentation, as there is no room for the word “conservative” in “neoconservatism.”

As Paul Craig Roberts notes, there “is nothing conservative about neoconservatives. Neocons hide behind ‘conservative’ but they are in fact Jacobins.”

Pakistan After Bhutto

Life After Benazir
by Moni Mohsin
When news of Benazir's assassination broke, my nephew gasped, "She can't be dead! She's always been a part of my life. Always." So strong and ubiquitous was her presence over the last twenty years that he cannot imagine a Pakistan without her. No one can.
 
She grew up in the public eye, and we all knew her through her various incarnations from pimply adolescent to the first female leader of a Muslim nation.

Our Nuclear Redawning

2007: Annus Mirabilis and the Smiling Garden of Eden      
by Pablo Ouziel
In 1905 Albert Einstein, presented the Annus Mirabilis ("Wonderful Year") Papers, in which he explained the mass–energy equivalence formula, E = mc2, which led to the development of nuclear energy.
 
In 1955, a few days before his death, Einstein together with Bertrand Russell issued the Russell-Einstein Manifesto, highlighting the dangers posed by nuclear weapons, and calling for world leaders to seek peaceful resolutions to international conflict.
 
One of the paragraphs in the manifesto read; “We shall try to say no single word which should appeal to one group rather than to another. All, equally, are in peril, and, if the peril is understood, there is hope that they may collectively avert it.”

Buying Liberty's Corpus

Pearls For Swine? Freedom's DNA, sold.      
by Stephen P. Pizzo
There's this newspaper clipping that's been sitting among the flotsam of my desktop for the last week or so. I tore it out of the December 20 Wall Street Journal because it struck me. Struck me how? Well, that's pretty much what I've been trying to figure out since then.

Having lived through the last seven years of you-know-what, I figured I'd been rendered immune further from shock or awe. And I was sure I'd exceeded my lifetime supply of irony-spotting.
 
 
Then I saw the story in question. It couldn't have been considered very important by WSJ editors, because it was buried on an inside page. But it sure jumped out to me. The headline asked: Who Bought the Magna Carta?

The story answered it's own question:

"Talk about your historic takeovers. David Rubenstein, co-founder of the private-equity firm Carlyle Group, bought a 710-year-old copy of the Magna Carta(Full Story) for $21.3 million on Tuesday. "

Bush Evidenced: The Year of Living Illegally

2007: The Year in Evidence
by David Swanson
The past year has seen the public exposure of enough evidence of old, ongoing, and new crimes, abuses of power, and impeachable offenses by George Bush and Dick Cheney that in any remotely representative democracy, these two thugs would be out of office and behind bars.
 
The chief reason this does not shock us is that the same could be said, and was said, of each of the previous six years. It's been quite a millennium so far for Washington, D.C.

Asking Huckabee: Who Would Jesus Bomb?

Protesters Ask Former Baptist Minister, “Who Would Jesus Bomb?”
by Mike Ferner
With 40 percent of Iowa’s Republican caucus voters expected to come from the ranks of conservative Christians, peace activists occupied Mike Huckabee’s campaign headquarters in Iowa’s capital city today with signs asking the former Baptist minister, “Who Would Jesus Bomb?”

Eight members of the Iowa Occupation Project and Voices for Creative Nonviolence arrived at Huckabee’s Locust St. campaign office early Monday afternoon, waiting for the former Arkansas governor’s reply to a letter delivered two months ago that sought his pledge to completely withdraw from Iraq within 100 days of assuming office; halt all military actions against Iraq and Iran; fund the rebuilding of Iraq as well as health, education and infrastructure needs in the U.S.; and “…the highest quality health care, education and jobs training benefits for veterans of our country’s Armed Services.”

'Washington Consensus' on Latin America Rebranded

‘W.O.L.A.’ FLOGGING “OLD WASHINGTON  MULE” IN ‘LATIN’ AMERICA
by Kahentinetha Horn
Late last Wednesday night a call came from Akwesasne, “What’re you doing?” The response was, “Nothing!”  The next question was, “Wanna go down to New York City for a meeting?” 
 
The answer was, “Sure!”  The next morning two Mohawks, one from Kahnawake and another from Kanehsatake,  met up with two other Mohawks from Akwesasne in Upstate New York for the long drive in the pick up truck to the big Apple.
