Marriage Activists Discuss “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Repeal (tags)
Members of the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) discussed the bill Congress passed last December aimed at repealing the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy excluding open Queers from serving in the U.S. military. The discussion, at their regular meeting January 11, revealed mixed feelings; S.A.M.E. members supported “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal as a civil rights issue, but many of them are also anti-war and want Queers to have the right to be in the military — and the good sense not to join.
Church Program Honors Southern Poverty Law Center (tags)
Though the guest of honor, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) director Morris Dees, didn't show up — his mother-in-law was terminally ill and he canceled with less than a day’s notice — the September 22 program honoring the Center went on anyway, with the group’s president, Richard Cohen, the main attraction. Cohen and other SPLC staff members discussed the group’s history, its spectacular lawsuits holding the Ku Klux Klan and other white-supremacist organizations responsible for the deaths of people of color, and the links between the ultra-radical Right and the supposedly “respectable” Tea Party.

Antiwar Activists “Boot” Dubya Out the Door (tags)
A rally and march was held in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 19, 2009. It’s objective was to give President George W. Bush “the boot” as he exited an office that he has disgraced by his failure to uphold the law. David Swanson, cofounder of afterdowningstreet. org, was one of the speakers at the event. He underscored the importance of appointing a “Special Prosecutor” to look into and hold accountable the culpable members of the Bush-Cheney Gang.

Provocative Thoughts While Touring a Park: (tags)
From book subtitled: The Authoritarian Nature of the Three Abrahamic Religions: as When God Became the Terrorist: The major thesis of this book is that authoritarianism, as a “human” personality trait, throughout history, has influenced both the “creation” and the “interpretation”, of religious and political dogma, and that this was even more so before there was a constituted division between Church and State. In Judeo-Christianity and Islamic authority, to some extent, is the egotistic imprint of monotheism in which God basically is perceived to have a “psychological” ego consciousness able to understand and communicate with the human ego consciousness of mankind. Particularly, we will want to focus on the ideas of justice—both the ideas of divine metaphysical justice and human social justice. According to Daniel Defoe, in no trivial sense, “Justice is the end of government”.
“Has Sen. Barbara Mikulski Lost Her Soul?” (tags)
Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) voted against the Iraqi War. But, since then, she has acted like an agent of the Bush-Cheney Gang by consistently voting to fund it to the tune of $411.3 billion. Mikulski says she “cares about the troops,” but Peace advocates in Maryland think that she has “lost her soul.” They wonder when Mikulski is going to say: “Stop this war!” She has ignored the mandate of the Nov. 7, 2006 election. Iraq is now Sen. Mikulski’s War!

The Legacy of the Iraqi War Hawks (tags)
The body count goes up and up in Iraq; with more dead U.S. soldiers and Iraqi civilians. Chaos reigns! Yet, the man primarily responsible for this carnage, President George W. Bush, insists on “staying the course.” The evil legacy of this conflict metastasizes. The War Hawks, many in the U.S. Congress, some in the Media, along with the Neocons, bear culpability, too, in this matter. The Nov. election may be a last chance to restore sanity in Washington, D.C.

Iraqis forced to vote "with their feet" today (tags)
Contrary to U.S. claims about the "free" election in Iraq today, all Iraqis are prevented by Occupation troops to use their vehicles. The only vehicles allowed on the streets are the Occupiers' military vehicles(even bicycles are banned!). Hence, Iraqis are literally forced to "vote with their feet." There is no fitter commentary on the real nature of 'freedom' in Iraq than this unilateral Executive Order made by USA proconsul Z. Khalizaid(an ex-Oil company lobbyist!)

Sheehan said, we need an “Opposition Party” and that Congress is mostly made up of cowards, who have given “a liar” and “a maniac,” - George W. Bush - the power to invade Iraq. If Congress doesn’t shape up, she said: “Fire them!”

Marines shoot wounded prisoners in Fallujah mosque (tags)
A video grab taken by embedded U.S. Network NBC shows a U.S. Marine pointing his assault rifle at a wounded and unarmed guerilla inside a mosque just before the occupation soldier killed the prisoner with a burst of machine gun fire. The murdered Iraqi prisoner was one of five injured guerillas captured by Marines. NBC's Kevin Sites witnessed the killing while assigned to represent a pool of news organizations. Several US televison networks aired footage of members of the US marine unit entering the mosque in Fallujah before one Marine shot the unarmed, wounded man in the head as he lay prone aganst a wall. Neither NBC nor CNN showed the shooting itself... the video was blacked out but the report of the rifle could be heard. The bodies in the foreground are other Iraqi prisoners.

The onslaught in Fallujah: Shooting at a fly that has landed on a horse’s head (tags)
On the face of it, the siege of Fallujah seems to be going relatively well for the US troops. Most of the city has been captured and according to the mass media “Operation Phantom Fury” will be finished in a couple of days. However, things are not so simple. The war in Iraq was also supposed to be over, whereas it clearly is not. The same applies to Fallujah, where an official victory may well turn out to be a Pyrrhic one.

U.S. removed Aristide at gunpoint! (tags)
In the photographs an invading U.S. Marine stands guard at Port-au-Prince's airport, Haiti, on March 1, 2004, and thugs from the so-called "Haitian National Revolutionary Liberation Front" patrol the streets of Port-au-Prince. (note... the "rebels" who staged the coup against the democratically elected government are wearing U.S. Army uniforms and carry U.S. Army M-16 machine guns). Hundreds of US Marines have arrived in Haiti to secure their control over the island nation after U.S. troops forcibly removed the elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide at gunpoint. Congressmember Maxine Waters received a phone call from the kidnapped President of Haiti, who told her that he did NOT resign and had been abducted by the United States in the commission of a coup. The U.S. occupation troops have secured key sites... including the Presidential Palace. Aristide's private residence has been sacked and looted. The corporate press remains silent... preferring instead the U.S. State Department lie that Aristide has "resigned."
