WOID #XIV-35. Raciste! Raciste!

Hoipolloi Cassidy | The head of one of the major far-right parties in France, Philippe de Villiers, was booted out of a mass demonstration called to protest the brutal murder of a young Jew, Ilan Halimi. As many as 200,000 may have attended - and 400,000 boots in the butt is a bunch of boot.

PHOTO EXPOSE: HOW CIA SNEAKS PRISONERS from Europe in Cargo Planes

Clayton Hallmark | The US and European governments dare to deny this smoking-gun photographic evidence. The CIA has been sneaking its prisoners in and out of Europe on cargo transport planes. The US says the planes carry "embassy cargo." European governments pretend to believe them -- and never inspect the planes. But, "Who you gonna believe, them or your lying eyes?" Just look at the photograph. See your flag? See your Stars and Stripes, Old Glory? See the MPs? See the prisoners? All of them (prisoners) are INNOCENT! Innocent until proven guilty, remember? They haven't even been legally arrested. What you see here, though, IS crime in progress. Kidnapping. Torture.

The Bush Administration's Great State of the Union Ethanol Scam

joe broadhurst | Did Congress and the Senate "Day Trade" Ethanol on the day of the State of the Union address and rip-off Americans the following morning by selling it off?

It certainly looks as though the marriage between the White House, Senate and Congressional leadership and Wall Street has been exposed. more...  0 Comments

Randall's Island Development Fuled by Giuliani Donors

Emerson | We have had the opportunity to review the 80 plus pages of the Draft Waterpark Concession Agreement between the Department of Parks and Recreation and Randall’s Island Aquatic Leisure, LLC and our concerns have only been magnified.It is clear from legislation and court precedent that this Draft Agreement if implemented in its current size and form would assuredly meet the definition of “alienating” park land. Hence, much more legislative involvement will be necessary to move forward. anFurthermore, the Randall's Island Aquatic Leisure LLC is a currently non-existent shell company, with no track record or office space, created soley for this initiative and perhaps to thwart investigation into the track records of its principals and possible association with felons, which would certainly scuttle the deal.

We do know that, from the 2001 Giuliani Administration press release announcing this scheme that is led by the Aquatic Development Group. Why they couldn’t be named on a Draft Agreement should be cause for serious concern and further scrutiny than is provided for in the timeframe currently adhered to by the current Administration. more...  2 Comments

On communities within government

Jason Gooljar | Reading about the abuse that the Mexican people have endured from neoliberal policies in maqiladora factories you wonder if there is any hope at all left. For those who do not know, a "maqiladora" is a factory that assembles imported US parts then sends them back to the US. It is truly disgusting, that is the only word I have for such a device devised by greedy capitalist pigs. more...  0 Comments
