NYPD Stops Cindy Sheehan Speech, Cuts Mic, Disperses Enraged Crowd

todd | A rally of 150 New Yorkers at Camp Casey-NYC was cut short this afternoon when NYPD acting under Inspector MacEnroy broke through the human wall of Veterans for Peace and Military Families Speak Out activists surrounding Gold Star Mom Cindy Sheehan and cut off her microphone and took her amplifier. Cindy Sheehan was reporting on the successful Bring Them Home Now bus tour. One activist remains in jail.

Cops less directly involved in the attack and arrest retreated to the chair/bike ramp, chased by a chanting crowd of 60-70 from among 150 or so who had attended the dispersed rally. There they formed up a military line in order to remain in the park as New Yorkers chanted "police out of the park" and "who's f-cking park? OUR f-cking park!" during a sometimes-tense 20 minute standoff. Lisa Fithian attempted to calm the crowd but also said that in 23 cities, the Bring Them Home Now bus tour had not been treated as aggressively as in New York City.

Clinton Gives Republicans A Dose Of Their Own Medicine

Captain America | On the US budget, Clinton warned that the federal deficit may be coming untenable, driven by foreign wars, the post-hurricane recovery program and tax cuts that benefitted just the richest one percent of the US population, himself included.

"What Americans need to understand is that ... every single day of the year, our government goes into the market and borrows money from other countries to finance Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, and our tax cuts," he said.

"We have never done this before. Never in the history of our republic have we ever financed a conflict, military conflict, by borrowing money from somewhere else."

Clinton added: "We depend on Japan, China, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and Korea primarily to basically loan us money every day of the year to cover my tax cut and these conflicts and Katrina. I don't think it makes any sense."

The Senate and the real John Roberts: Workers World editorial

Workers World | The hearings are being conducted by millionaires on the Senate Judiciary Committee, most of whom are lawyers and are about as far away from the workers and the oppressed as the moon. They allow Roberts to not answer questions. They let him plead in case after case involving his reactionary writings, arguments or rulings that he was just working for an administration or a client. This is equivalent to the argument that every low-level indicted war criminal makes: “I was just following orders.” more...  0 Comments
