The Administration's new FISA defense is factually false

Glenn Greenwald | From Atrios: "You might want to take a look at Glenn Greenwald's latest post, the contents of which should be pretty much the opening segment of every evening news show. He points out that in 2002 Senator DeWine proposed the legislation which would've amended the FISA law to lower the burden necessary from probable cause to reasonable suspicion (one caveat, for non-US persons only), precisely what our constitution-challenged former NSA head was claiming was why they "had to" break the law. He also claimed they sought such changes but Congress wouldn't give it to them."

"The kicker? The Bush Justice Department opposed the law on constitutional concerns." more...  0 Comments

Secret Grand Jury Investigations Lead to the Indictments of 12

Global Indymedia | The nation-wide sweep of arrests, dubbed “Operation Backfire”, has been declared by the FBI as a major hit to environmentalists and animal rights activists who engage in destruction of property as a means to defend wilderness and lives of animals. However, many suspect that the string of arrests falls in line with decades-long FBI covert intelligence operations aimed at disrupting and discrediting political movements. Part of COINTELPROand other intelligence agendas, the FBI has been engaged in domestic surveillance activities and have been falsely targeting political activists since the 1960s.

Voting Veracity

Erin Thompson | In New York state, individual counties are responsible for buying and implementing systems compatible with HAVA and NYS Election Board standards.

Alito's open-minded platitudes

Daniel Borgström | Judge Alito is really slick, like a bar of soap on a bathroom floor. He'd be a great defense lawyer; and if I were in Jack Abramoff's shoes, Alito would be my first choice. As it is, it looks like Alito will be confirmed for the Supreme Court. No question about his qualifications, Alito will be a justice who can work the U.S. Constitution and fit it to Bush's fancy. more...  0 Comments

The Wyoming Institute (d/b/a The Manhattan Institute)

DMI Blog | We must, together as New Yorkers, find a way to drown out the Manhattan Institute's efforts with a loud chorus of dissenting boos each and every time it seeks to promote unpopular, unprogressive and, frankly, un-New York views from within our borders. Let them move out of New York and become the Wyoming Institute; then they could promote their views while awash in local support. But as long as they have hijacked and continue to defame the name of a New York City borough and persist in advocating extreme political philosophies we do not share, they should hear our disapproval as often as possible.
