Malachy McCourt and the Green Party on the ballot for Governor
Kimberly Wilder | At the NY State Board of Elections in Albany, Green Party Governor candidate Malachy McCourt, Senate candidate Howie Hawkins, and an entire Peace Slate filed around 30,000 signatures. The Green Party is proud to be a choice on the ballot for peace and an alternative to the corporatized major parties.
Tea Party at the Hague
budgie | Is the Hague court a joke or have we just lost our sense of perspective? The latest indiscriminate slaughter of children and innocent civilians in Lebanon by ‘God’s chosen’ seems not to warrant the attention of the Hague court. Carla Del Ponte’s latest remonstration against the Serbian leadership for not delivering war criminals to her court seems ‘slightly’ dissociative in view of recent events. Her obsession with Serbs now borders on the pathological. Would the civilian death toll in Iraq warrant her attention? Iraq now approaches one hundred thousand innocent civilian deaths – eighty percent directly attributable to the forces of occupation!
The Coming Repression
James Cooke |
If one listens closely to those directing U.S. foreign policy, accusations, infighting, and panic are clearly audible. If one listens closer still, bursting seams can be heard. The U.S. corporate-ruled elite are in a crisis they can’t escape from; what this means for the public is easily discernable, if one only listens.

New Yorkers Petition Sen. Clinton for Debate on Issues
Daithí | The voters of New York State deserve to make an intelligent and informed decision when they walk into the voting booth for the primary election on September 12, 2006.
The Case of Elvira Arellano
Fred Bergen | It's no wonder, then, that news of Elvira's heroic defiance of the government's deportation order has spread through the US immigrant communities like wildfire, or that she is compared with Rosa Parks, whose civil disobedience of the unjust Jim Crow segregation laws in 1955 sparked a year-long boycott by working-class black women of the Montgomery, Alabama buses, bringing the city's transit system to its knees and igniting the struggle for black civil rights nationwide.
PHILIPPINES: Impeachment killers, murderers of justice!
AKBAYAN (Citizens Action Party) | “Murderers of justice! This is what Congressmen who will vote for the dismissal of the impeachment complaint against Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA) will be remembered as.”, said AKBAYAN (Citizens Action Party) President Ronald Llamas today on the information that the House Committee on Justice will terminate the impeachment proceedings today.

Anne Broache | A first wave of U.S. passports implanted with radio tags will soon begin making their way into the hands of American travelers despite lingering privacy and security concerns, federal officials said Monday…The agency said it plans to issue the documents through the nation’s other passport facilities within the next few months, as part of its original plan to make all future passports electronic by October.

Gov't Officials Part of Cigarette RICO Plot
Watchdog | Government officials are the Dr. Frankensteins who created the homicidal monster of the industry that makes and sells the most industrially-contaminated products in history.
In today's news, Dr. Frankenstein pretends to prosecute and condemn its own creation. Mainsteam news plays along.
And this, about a day or two after Mayor Bloomberg offered over a million dollars to fight "smoking". He hasn't offered a dime to fight pesticides or chlorine/dioxin...in typical cigarettes or anywhere.
Israel's Military Failure
Juan Chingo | Now more than ever we must struggle for a revolutionary working class leadership for all the masses of the Middle East, the only solution that take advantage of the weakening of the principal foundations of the pro-imperialist and Zionist regional order in a progressive direction.

After defeating pro-war incumbent Lieberman, Lamont reassures Wall Street
Patrick Martin | The victory of multi-millionaire cable executive Ned Lamont in the Connecticut Democratic primary August 8 has produced paroxysms of uncritical celebration in liberal publications like the Nation and from groups like MoveOn.org, which campaigned heavily for Lamont and against incumbent senator Joseph Lieberman.
Katrina Van Den Heuvel, editor of the Nation, declared in her blog that “Lamont’s win is a real victory for progressives... democracy broke out in the State of Connecticut. Here’s hoping this is just the beginning.”
The magazine’s political correspondent John Nichols has provided gushing pro-Lamont coverage throughout the campaign, portraying the primary as a struggle “for the soul of the Democratic Party.”
Contradictions, anomalies, questions mount in UK terror scare
Julie Hyland | A British court on Wednesday extended the warrants for 23 people held since August 10 in connection with the alleged plot to blow up commercial airliners flying from Britain to the US. An additional person was arrested Tuesday. The judge issued his ruling late in the evening following a closed-door hearing that lasted most of the day.
Under Britain’s recently passed anti-terror law, suspected terrorists can be held for up to 28 days without being charged. Amid growing indications that the authorities lack firm evidence to back up their claims that the arrested men and women were on the verge of executing a terror attack on the scale of 9/11, there had been speculation in the press that at least some of the prisoners would be ordered released.
