Signs of the Times for Mon, 03 Jul 2006

Joe Quinn
Signs of the Times
Alan Dershowitz is a professor of law at Harvard University, an apologist for the Israel lobby in the US and a self-confessed "big mouth". He is also a man completely in thrall to the NeoCon agenda and who takes every opportunity to promote the extremist warmongering disguised as "freedom and democracy" that has come to define the reign of the Bush administration, who, we should remember, entered the white house in 2000 in much the same way as other great dictatorships of history - without the consent of a majority of the population

Few readers of a British newspaper would have noticed the story. In the Observer of 25 June, it merited a mere paragraph hidden in the "World in brief" section, revealing that the previous day a team of Israeli commandos had entered the Gaza Strip to "detain" two Palestinians Israel claims are members of Hamas...

Peace Palestine
Please forward widely

Morning came and we found that 90 of the nation's best men were captured by Israel from their homes in the night. Our mayor, who was released from four years in prison just a month ago. Someone for whom I have the utmost respect and admiration, as do his people here, political allies and opponents alike. And our vice mayor, too. The last time I talked with him, earlier this week, he was struggling a lot with chronic back pain. I wonder where they are now. If they have been fed today, or tortured. If they will sleep on beds tonight, or not at all. If they will be home tomorrow. If we will never see some of them again alive.

Looking at the year so far, a few things stand out. The price of oil has risen steadily. Gold has risen as well but not as steadily, given the recent correction which seems to have found a bottom in the mid-$580s. The dollar has been able to maintain its value, due in large part to rising short term interest rates by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board. As we will see, that may not last much longer.

So far no crash. That's the good news. They have managed to keep the system afloat for another six months -- not a bad accomplishment. One might even be tempted to think "they" know what they are doing. Nick Beams, discussing the annual report of the Bank of International Settlements, argues that they don't...

The New American Empire

"We now live in a nation in which the president has the omnipotent power to ignore all constitutional restraints on his power."

Jacob Hornberger ( Future of Freedom Foundation)

"Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction,"

Vice President Dick Cheney, August 26, 2002

"The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor."

President Ronald Reagan

George W. Bush has failed as president. Indeed, it looks like the political legacy that George W. Bush will leave behind will be a terrible heritage. His administration, (which should more appropriately be called 'the Bush-Cheney administration' because of the predominant and crucial role played by Vice President Dick Cheney) will be remembered as an administration built on lies, fabricated "evidence", duplicity, deception, manipulation, propaganda, improvisation, bad policies and gratuitous warmongering. In other words, the 'Bush-Cheney administration' is the reverse of what you would like a democratic government to be. The end result is an administration that has profoundly corrupted the daily working of the U. S. government.

The Nation
Sun July 2, 2006
Patriotism, Tom Paine observed, is not best measured in times of national comfort and quiet. It is in times of crisis, when the summer soldiers and sunshine patriots have retreated to the safety of official talking points and unquestioning loyalty, that those who truly understand the meaning and merit of the American experiment come to its defense. On the 230th anniversary of the launch of that experiment, let us reflect on those who have met the test, noting in particular that some of the boldest expressions of patriotism have come from groups not necessarily associated with dissent.
