American Marines on COMBAT Patrol on American Soil Kill Boy

A. Citizen (repost) | The Marines kill Tejanos. It's happened before. It will happen again. They can't tell the difference between us and the Mexicans. Can you? Someone please for the love of God pass this on to some Democrat who can carry the Banner of Esequiel Hernandez, so his tragic tale will not be repeated. He would tell you himself, if he was not dead.

The Catholic Church Calls for Jihad against The Da Vinci Code

Mahmood Ketabchi | Cardinal Francis Arinze, a leading cleric in the Vatican establishment, urged Christians not to sit aside, but to do something to defend their beliefs against the “lies” and “Blasphemies” disseminated by The Da Vinci Code. He also declared, "This is one of the fundamental human rights: that we should be respected, our religious beliefs respected, and our founder Jesus Christ respected.” But why should anyone respect Cardinal Arinze's religious beliefs or admire Jesus if the person is critical of religion, religious establishments, and religious laws and regulations ? more...  3 Comments

Framework for a police state – US government phone spying targets all Americans

By the editorial board | The exposure in Thursday’s USA Today of a vast and secret National Security Agency data base tracking the phone calls of hundreds of millions of Americans is further evidence of the advanced preparations for the establishment of a police state in the United States. The NSA database is a blueprint for political repression and intimidation on a massive scale.
The patently illegal government surveillance has nothing to do with preventing terrorist attacks, as claimed by President Bush and echoed by both the media and Democratic Party politicians who criticize various aspects of the program. It has been implemented by a state apparatus which sees its major opposition as coming from among the American people, not scattered bands of Islamic terrorists. At a time of growing social opposition, the government is systematically collecting data to find out what people are thinking and to whom they are talking.
The phone-tracking program has, according to the USA Today report, been underway since shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The three largest telecommunications companies in the US, AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, agreed secretly to collaborate with the Bush administration and hand over to the NSA their records of every telephone call made by every one of their approximately 200 million customers. The program, carried out without court-issued warrants or Congressional oversight, is in flagrant violation of federal statutes as well as civil liberties guarantees laid down in the Bill of Rights. more...  0 Comments

Hawkins for Senate Opposes $70 Billion Tax Cut package for the Rich

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, who is seeking the Green Party nomination for US Senate, called on Congress to reject the proposed $70 billion tax cut that will primarily benefit wealthy Americans. The cuts have already been approved by the House and a Senate vote is expected shortly. “The agreement will provide an average annual tax cut of just $20 to Americans in the middle of the income spectrum, while showering tax cuts that average $42,000 on people who make more than $1 million a year. The Greens are opposed to the Robin-hood-in-reverse policies of our two major parties,” stated Hawkins.

Giuliani: Hero or Race Baiter?

Steven Wishnia | While the national media continues to lionize the "Hero of 9/11", director Kevin Keating has brought back to life all the messy details of Giuliani's rise to power from his family's connections to the Mob to the racially-coded attacks on poor and marginal people that defined his administration. He may be too "liberal" for the
Republicans' Talibanic wing--he's spent more time schmoozing rich gay campaign donors than crusading against sodomite abominations--but if he does gain traction, be afraid. more...  3 Comments
