On the Court of Appeals Dismissal of Habeas Corpus Case of Jonas Burgo (tags)
The Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) its condemns in the strongest terms possible the recent Court of Appeals(CA) decision, dismissing the petitions for the writ of habeas corpus and for writ of Amparo of Mrs. Edith Burgos, mother of missing activist Jonas Burgos, who was believed to have been abducted by unidentified military men in broad daylight at 12 noon at the crowded Ever Gotesco Mall along Commonwealth Avenue on April 28, 2007. The AJLPP National Coordinator Mario Santos calls the decision anti-people and a big blow to the victims of human rights violations in the Philippines. It only exposes the Court of Appeals like the Supreme as a tool of the reactionary system to keep the people on the bourgeois justice system.

"Do I Make You Horny for Habeas Corpus." (tags)
As much fun as it is watching sexual hypocrisy in the Republican controlled Congress and what looks to be a criminal cover-up of said sexual hypocrisy within the ranks of the Republican Party leadership in Congress the real scandal is not the consensual e-mail communications between two sexually adult individuals, and what we will probably later find out to be actual underage sexual hookups between representative Foley (R)- Florida and some more than willing teenagers
The Infallible Empire: Junking Habeas Corpus (tags)

Read Governor Schwarzenegger's Statement (tags)
The dedication of Williams’ book “Life in Prison” casts significant doubt on his personal redemption. This book was published in 1998, several years after Williams’ claimed redemptive experience. Specifically, the book is dedicated to “Nelson Mandela, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, Assata Shakur, Geronimo Ji Jaga Pratt, Ramona Africa, John Africa, Leonard Peltier, Dhoruba Al-Mujahid, George Jackson, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and the countless other men, women, and youths who have to endure the hellish oppression of living behind bars.” The mix of individuals on this list is curious. Most have violent pasts and some have been convicted of committing heinous murders, including the killing of law enforcement.
