ISRAEL EATS ITS OWN: Peres assassinates 2nd Prime Minister of Israel, Sharon, & few mourn
...[Sharon's] final meeting was with Ehud Olmert. The following day, Sharon was supposed to have undergone minor heart surgery to repair a small hole in his heart. The operation was to last 3 hours and during that time, Sharon signed the papers appointing Olmert temporary prime minister. According to the newspaper..., **Sharon was utterly opposed to Olmert as his successor** and had, instead, chosen Moshe Katsav. And that may go a long way to explaining why Olmert was so concerned about receiving the temporary transfer of powers authorization from Sharon himself in the Negev Desert, when the very same papers could have been faxed to him in his Jerusalem office. ...[R]evealing account of the meeting: Olmert entered the room. "Arik," he said, "There are a few matters I want to handle while I'm serving as temporary prime minister." Sharon retorted, "I thought so. I'll transfer my authority to you but I remind you it's only for three hours. Do you understand? You will deal with no one and take care of nothing without me."

Within minutes of the stern warning to Olmert, Sharon was stricken and taken by the picturesque route to Jerusalem. And who was there to make sure things went as planned?: Why the same perpetrator of the murder of Prime Minister Rabin 10 years ago. Embedded in the lead story on www.israelnn.com today:... "No politicians have been permitted to visit Sharon, but Shimon Peres was to have been the first one, had Sharon not been taken to the operating room." --- By January 11, Olmert had announced his intention of inviting Shimon Peres to sit in his new government cabinet.

Skirmishes in the information wars
There are only two weapons in the imperial tool chest: force and deception. The brutal colonial occupation of Iraq has provided us with a lavish example of the former, but the twin-axel of deception is more abstruse and difficult to pin down. Sure, there's the flagrant propaganda that floods right-wing radio and political talk shows, but that tells us little about the state-sponsored disinformation-programs that permeate every area of American life.

NBC Confirms It's Investigating BushCo. Wiretap of CNN's Christiane Amanpour
NBC's just-issued statement on why they deleted key portions of Andrea Mitchell's interview with NYT reporter James Risen:

"Unfortunately this transcript was released prematurely. It was a topic on which we had not completed our reporting, and it was not broadcast on 'NBC Nightly News' nor on any other NBC News program. We removed that section of the transcript so that we may further continue our inquiry."

This is quite big. Note exactly what NBC said.

- NBC did not say it pulled the references to Bush spying on Amanpour because it was inappropriate conjecture about something which Andrea Mitchell had no evidence.

- No, NBC said it pulled the references because it was still investigating the accusation and didn't want to scoop itself before it was finished investigating. And make no mistake, NBC is "continuing their inquiry."

That's incredibly big news.

All 5 Oregon Dems opposed the war!
ALL FOUR OF OREGON'S DEMOCRATIC REPRESENTATIVES AND OREGON'S ONE DEMOCRATIC SENATOR HAVE BEEN OPPOSED TO THE IRAQ WAR SINCE THE BEGINNING!

Rep. John Murtha, bless him, did not originate Democratic opposition to the Iraq war. The whole mess started with the infamous "October resolution" rammed through the congress in October, 2002, with enormous pre-election pressure by corporate media and big $$$ campaign funding.

Corporate media wants you to believe that "the Democrats" were ALL for that war powers authorization -- but IN FACT DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE OPPOSED THE WAR POWERS AUTHORIZATION BY A MAJORITY OF 126-to-81. In the Senate, 21 Democrats (including WYDEN of Oregon and MURRAY of Washington) voted AGAINST the war powers authorization for Bush.

WOT - (NYT) Chinese government attempts to censor internet news of Dongzhou massace
As described by the New York Times article (below) the
corrupt, revisionist (ie: fake marxist) government of China
is attempting to censor all news of last week's massacre
of 20 or more farmers in Dongzhou, in southern China.

This attempt to suppress news of this massacre may (or may not)
be successful in the short run. But, in the long run, these
kinds of attempts to suppress the news are doomed to failure.
This story is of great significance to activists today who
want to build a powerful and militant mass movement for a world
that is not ruled by imperialism and the bourgeoisie.

"From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August."


It appears some Senate Republicans are suspiciously reluctant to investigate this 21st century war.

I believe seperation of powers, checks & balances assign this OverSight function to the Senate, so they become duty-bound by their oath of office to proceed, to simply respect, carry out and honor the law. Besides are they not 'elected' public servants?... and right now almost 2/3rds of America believe the country was misled, deceived, manipulated and spooked with a calculated slick PR campaign to embroil the US into death and destruction, a fiasco and a wrong, the public wants no part of. We say this government is not serving or respecting the People's wishes, and CALLS to demand and an about-face correction should begin to be set in motion !...forthrightly.

Death By Torture: US media ignores hard evidence
Military autopsy reports provide indisputable proof that detainees are being tortured to death while in US military custody. Yet the US corporate media are covering it with the seriousness of a garage sale for the local Baptist Church.
A recent American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) posting of one of forty-four US military autopsy reports reads as follows: "Final Autopsy Report: DOD 003164, (Detainee) Died as a result of asphyxia (lack of oxygen to the brain) due to strangulation as evidenced by the recently fractured hyoid bone in the neck and soft tissue hemorrhage extending downward to the level of the right thyroid cartilage. Autopsy revealed bone fracture, rib fractures, contusions in mid abdomen, back and buttocks extending to the left flank, abrasions, lateral buttocks. Contusions, back of legs and knees; abrasions on knees, left fingers and encircling to left wrist. Lacerations and superficial cuts, right 4th and 5th fingers. Also, blunt force injuries, predominately recent contusions (bruises) on the torso and lower extremities. Abrasions on left wrist are consistent with use of restraints. No evidence of defense injuries or natural disease. Manner of death is homicide. Whitehorse Detainment Facility, Nasiriyah, Iraq."

Iraq: Turmoil Among the Warmakers, Challenge For the People
The war in Iraq, to understate the case, is not going well for the U.S. imperialists. The resistance to the U.S. occupation within Iraq has spread and grown more capable. The conflicts between the many different political, ethnic and class forces within Iraq show little sign of resolution, and the puppet Iraqi army is still not able to fight on its own. In response, the U.S. has escalated its tactics of wholesale terror directed against the Sunni Muslim population as a whole, which is the main (though not the only) base of the insurgency. Making all this worse--from the imperialist standpoint, that is--is the increasingly widespread and sharp sentiment against the war within the U.S. itself. And interplaying with that is a growing disaffection and anger within the army itself.

Corporate airwaves, including NPR, have been saturated for two days now with soundbites of Republicans attacking the Democrats, who have finally come out in greater numbers against the Iraq war/occupation. I have to paraphrase, but this is pretty much what I have been hearing in the background for two days:

"It's intellectually dishonest for any Democrat to say that the American people were deceived about the war. Have they no shame?" says Senator Grassley of Iowa.

"It's irresponsible to say that I deliberately misled the American people." -- George W. Bush

"That the President misled the America people is one of the worst and most reprehensible lies ever aired in this city [Washington, D.C.]!" -- V.P. Dick Cheney
