Defend Women's Reproductive Rights in Charlotte and Albuquerque

By Debra Sweet

YOU are needed! This summer (starting this weekend) Operation Save America led by the notorious Flip Benham will be swarming Charlotte, NC.

 
Benham has pledged to shut down Family Reproductive Health, a long time provider of women's health care, including abortion services.

Starting Saturday July 17, Operation Save America (creators of the "INTOLERANT" t-shirt) a rabidly fundamentalist sect of anti-abortion fanatics, is calling on anti-abortion forces to "storm the gates of hell" in Charlotte, NC. Operation Save America has a long and vicious history of opposing women's right to choose, fighting against gay rights, and spreading vicious anti-Muslim hatred. They must be opposed.

Judge: 5 year Delay = “Speedy Trial” (for a Guantanamo Prisoner)

By Kenneth J. Theisen 

 

Most people have some vague notion that the Constitution guarantees a speedy trial. But when it comes to the U.S. war of terror the Constitution has been repeatedly lost in our so-called system of justice. It was lost again on July 13th, when a federal judge rejected the claim that a five year delay in being brought into court violated a defendant’s rights to a speedy trial.
 
The case is that of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani. He is the first detainee formerly held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, to be brought before the civilian court system for trial. Federal Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that, “The government is entitled to attempt to hold Ghailani accountable in a court of law for his alleged complicity in the murder of 224 people and the injury of more than 1,000 others. Although the delay of this proceeding was long and entirely the product of decision for which the executive branch of our government is responsible, the decisions that caused the delay were not made for the purpose of gaining any advantage over Ghailani in the prosecution of this indictment.”

Drawing Our Own Conclusions

By Debra Sweet

I saw the film Restrepo over the weekend, having read of the film makers' intention to "capture the experience of combat, boredom and fear through the eyes of the soldiers" without making a "political statement." "This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you."

SB1070: What’s The Difference Between Americans Only and Whites Only?

By Emma KaplanEnglish Only

On July 29, anti-immigrant law SB1070 will go into effect. This law will make life even more horrific and unbearable for millions of immigrants and millions more who look like they are from another country. This is a leap in the whole bigoted storm trooper culture that was unleashed under Bush and has been offered a place to stay in the Obama administration. This culture was strategically developed after 9/11 when the powers that be widely promoted that there was nothing too vile, sadistic or inhumane when it comes to “ America and American lives.”

By Kenneth J. Theisen

I am asking all readers of this site before they go to bed to check under their pillow or mattress to see if they have a few billion dollars there. According to the latest report of an audit by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Pentagon cannot account for $8.7 billion in Iraqi oil revenues and other funds it received for reconstruction programs after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.

How YOU Can Help People See the Truth Exposed by Wikileaks

By Debra Sweet 
 
When an activist from World Can't Wait sent me a link to Thursday's Pentagon press conference, and called Geoff Morell, their spokesman a "pompus ass," I thought that wasn't really a news flash.

But really, to get the full impact of the government's threat to Julian Assange & Wikileaks for revealing the government's "property," you have to see Morell's sneer as the Pentagon reacted to Wikileak's posting of its huge "insurance" file, presumably designed to make sure the information is still available if their sites are shut down, or they are rounded up.

A Combat Brigade Leaves; U.S. War of Terror Against Iraq Continues

By Kenneth J. Theisen

On August 19th the last “combat” brigade left Iraq. This took place more than seven years after the original U.S. imperialist invasion of the country by the Bush regime. 
 
U.S. propagandists are trumpeting this withdrawal and many Americans believe the war there is all but over. But the reality is that the U.S. occupation and war of terror against the people of Iraq continues.

Before the Protests Tommorrow at Fort Hood

By Emma Kaplan

I am in Killeen, TX at Under The Hood Cafe near the Fort Hood military base tonight. I am down here for the protests happening on Sunday being called by the Disobedient.

The Disobedient is made up of Iraq era war vets and others anti- war activists, mainly young people. These protests are going to include visible non-violent resistance to the 3,000 troop surge being headed to Iraq. They are acting to create a situation where the U.S. cannot continue this illegitimate and illegal war - that deployments not only stop but that the military withdraws immediately.
