Clayton Hallmark | CIA prisons and CIA flights are a growing front-page story, and Khaled el-Masri is a good example of why we all should oppose such extrajudcial flights and prisons. El-Masri is the first to sue the CIA for "rendition," or kidnapping-to-torture. The ACLU in New York will assist. This article presents the kind of information they will use. He can't sue the CIA? He can, and there are individuals he can sue, including top officials like the CIA official, the Deputy Director of Operations, who authorizes renditions and each of 6 steps in the escalation of CIA torture. Once-proud Germany allows its citizens to be treated thus: El-Masri, a German citizen charged and suspected of nothing, was arrested on vacation as he crossed the Macedonian border on New Year's Eve 2003. He was transported by a US company, Premier Executive Transport on a 737 jet to a secret US gulag in Aghanistan. He was dumped in Albania 5 months later when the CIA caught on that they had the wrong guy. It would seem PET, who provided the plane, and whatever company supplied the pilots, could be sued as well. Many such suits could ensue.

DONALD IARUSSI | Survivors of hurricane katrina have been treated badly by FEMA and the AMERICAN RED CROSS. They gave poor people and black people less than those who were white or middle class. They have discriminated and some poor people haven't been helped at all. Don't donate to the American Red Cross, give to a charity that you know will help the por. If you donated to the American Red Cross, ask for your money back and give to organizations like Common Ground Relief or the Salvation Army. And protest about FEMA. more... 1 Comments
RepublicanCrap.com Initial Statement | Chicago, IL, December 4, 2005 — Around 12:00 AM on Sunday, Chicago based RepublicanCrap.com was electronically attacked and invaded by politically motivated hackers. The attackers manipulated the prices of the items sold on the site, in some cases lowering prices by over five-hundred percent. "We are outraged by this blatant attack on our freedom of speech. This is fraud, it is an intrusion, it costs money, and at the same time it justifies what RepublicanCrap.com does. This hack proves what we are up against when we raise our voices and try to make this country a better place." more... 3 Comments

Berman issued a 41-page opinion on Friday December 2nd ruling that random, suspicionless subway searches are constitutional. One of the plaintiffs in the case was carrying a copy of “It Can’t Happen Here,” on the day he was searched but the irony was lost on Judge Berman. more... 2 Comments
