U.S. Catholic Bishops “See No Evil” in the War Party
The Bush-Cheney Gang has been running the country into the ground the last seven years, while creating a framework for a fascist police state. It has also slaughtered 1.2 million Iraqis and sent 3,867 of our finest sons and daughters to a early grave in an illegal and immoral war. But, you wouldn't know it from any of the results of the annual conference of U.S. Catholic Bishops. To them, abortion is the greatest evil facing Mankind! Go figure!

STATEMENT ON OLYMPIA PORT MILITARIZATION RESISTANCE
Spraying at the Gate This week the police in Olympia, the capital of Washington State,flagrantly violated recommended policies for the use of pepper spray and attacked nonviolent protesters. Dozens of young people who believe the Iraq war is illegal under international law and that they have a duty under the Nuremberg Principles to resist it were subjected
to dangerous attack from chemical weapons. They deserve not unnecessary violence and excessive force, but praise for standing up for core American values.

Why Bush Doesn’t Have to Suspend the Constitution!
The White House Crime Scene President George W. Bush doesn't have to mimic Pakistan's dictator, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, and suspend the Constitution, since he doesn't have any opposition. The two major political parties are controlled by the same Wire Pullers. Meanwhile, an "Axis of Zionists," Michael Mukasey at Justice, Michael Chertoff at Homeland Security and Joshua Bolten at the WH, now have a choke hold on key positions in our government. America is in deep doo-doo!

First we would like to mention the fact that this event occurred is amazing. These activities are vitally important- not to show such displays of solidarity and resistance would be morally corrupt and indeed criminal in the truest sense. But something that many of us may already know on some level needs to be stated clearly: this is not enough.

To those who call themselves the Minutemen, their friends and sympathizers- we have a question for you. Do you support the North American Free Trade Agreement? Maybe like many Americans you are not quite sure what NAFTA is. It is an agreement between the leaders of the North American countries to formalize the program of "structural readjustment" that has been in various stages of implementation for some time now. This readjustment is in truth vast and complex but we can narrow it down to a basic concept and a concrete reality.

The Ins and Outs of Dead Boogieman Bin Laden. Enough Already?
I stopped keeping up with the ridiculous Bin Laden stories summer of 2006 after the Israeli assault on Lebanon when the New York Post, owned by Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch, tried to introduce the idea of a successor son to the Bin Laden Boogieman. At the time I assumed it was because the Bin Laden lie was growing so thin or perhaps the administration was hoping to expand the Lebanon attack into Syria. For some reason that storyline was dropped.
But the New World Order propagandists continue to wring the last drops out of the Bin Laden Arab boogieman. Have you had enough, yet?

We Have Ways…The Bush administration continues to disavow torture
The Times detailed how, after 9/11, the CIA constructed an interrogation program by "consulting Egyptian and Saudi intelligence officials and copying Soviet interrogation methods long used in training American servicemen to withstand capture." For decades, the United States government condemned Soviet, Egyptian, and Saudi torture. But interrogation systems designed to compel victims to sign false confessions now provide the model for protecting America in the new millennium.

Another month goes by, in which to remember how the forces of the fascist state murdered an innocent, naked, injured, and badly burned man, and then tried to justify that murder by suggesting that:

1) "He was involved in several Hit and Run accidents"
2) "He had been acting irrationally"
3) "He was under the influence of drugs."
4) "He had the strength of ten men."
5) "He refused to follow orders to lie down on the hot pavement."
6) "The officers feared for their lives."

US Casualties in Iraq Down?
The corporate media is telling America that US casualties in Iraq are as low as they have been since March 2005 when 37 US casualties were reported. Reported US casualties for October 2007 stand at 38. This is a break in a trend through previous years of the war where reported US casualties tend to be low in the first third of each year, usually in February or March, with the noted exception of May, 2003, with the lowest casualty rate of any month that year, at 37. Note that it was in May 2003 that George W. Bush gave his now infamous "Mission Accomplished" speach. Also, note that there are 30 reported non-combat deaths for May, compared to only 7 combat deaths. Coincidence? Not. May 2003 is the only month throughout the war that non-combat deaths exceed combat deaths, and clearly this is evidence of the military and corporate media's efforts to give support to the Appointed Leader's inaccurate bravado.

The Problems with Voting
Here's a problem: rich career politicians from both parties run campaigns in the primaries, bought and paid for by corporations and special interest lobbies, the corporate media decides who are the front runners, weeding out the undesirables and narrowing our choices, then each "Party" chooses a nominee that you are allowed to vote for. That structure in itself invalidates our vote. How can I vote for Kucinich or Paul, or McKinney if they are not chosen by thier "Party" to be the nominee? These names will not be on the ballot.
