Secret US database on international travelers exposed

Joe Kay | Details have emerged of a US government program that collects information and creates a “risk profile” of all people entering and leaving the United States. The program, secretly in place since 2002, is part of much broader system of government spying and attacks on privacy rights.

According to an Associated Press (AP) article from November 30, international travelers are given a score “after computers assess their travel records, including where they are from, how they paid for tickets, their motor vehicle records, past one-way travel, seating preference and what kind of meal they ordered.” The program also accesses other federal and commercial databases. The assessment is stored for 40 years.

PANEL: Bloomberg calls it "excessive", we call it MURDER! Stop NYPD Racist Terror

Pooh Johnson | On November 25th, five undercover NYPD officers, while not identifying themselves, surrounded the car of Sean Bell, Joseph Guzman, and Trent Benefield. They then proceeded to unload 50 bullets into the car, killing Sean Bell, and critically injuring his friends Joseph and Trent. The three were unarmed. Sean was going to be married the next day. This was not an accident, it was an execution. Instead of apologies, the NYPD has responded with a racist withchunt for a mythical "4th man". WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR JUSTICE!

But we won't get it by letting mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly have their way. The officers involved should go to jail. Ray Kelly should be fired. But even more, we need to rebuild a movement against racism, police brutality, and the criminal INjustice system.

Come to this meeting to voice your outrage, share your own stories and ideas, and discuss what it will take to fight back and win. more...  1 Comments

Jane Harman, the Manchurian Candidate

David Roknich | Nancy Pelosi was much more diplomatic than I will be in opposition to Jane Harman's bid for the chair of the House Intelligence Committee. Here's a picture of Ms. Harman without the redeye of a cheap flashbulb photog: a professional shot that reveals her as a deer in the headlights of the Neocons, as she sings the praises of what a "great job our intelligence people are doing in spite of great obstacles". Obstacles like Stud Terkel's lawsuit against AT&T, for instance, for helping the NSA spy on you and your neighbors.

Boykott Bulgarian Officials Supporting Systematic Abuse of Cats and Dogs

Emil Kuzmanov | The missing legal pet control is replaced by criminal collection and abuse of the great number of healthy animals. That leads to the real reduction of both increasing populations. The Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Finance stay tolerant to the illegal traffic and money laundering. Bulgarian institutions are colluding with black-marketers in their revolting industry.
