Rep. Congressman, Ron Paul: Impeach Bush For Violating Constitution - Not Partisan Payback
Republican Congressman Ron Paul says President Bush has presided over a doctrine of violating the Constitution at every turn and that he should be impeached - but that likely Democratic efforts to do so will be in the interests of playing politics and not the health of the nation.
"I would have trouble arguing that he's been a Constitutional President and once you violate the Constitution and be proven to do that I think these people should be removed from office."
Uranium bombing in Iraq contaminates Europe
Nine days after the start of the American president's 2003 "shock and awe" uranium bombing campaign in Baghdad, an invisible radioactive uranium oxide gas cloud swept through Britain's towns and countryside and throughout Europe.

Respected scientists reported on the unrevealed gas cloud after conducting research on specialized high volume air filters in England. Dr. Chris Busby and Saoirse Morgan stunned Europe in a Sunday Times of London article on Feb. 19, 2006. Their scientific paper, released March 1st, 2006, [1] proved the event. With all the vigor of delusional drunkards, British nuclear and military spokesmen predictably denied the reality of an invisible radioactive cloud.
Judge rules FBI raid on congressman's office was legal

The Sunni-Shiite bloodletting was frightening even by recent standards.
NEWSWEEK: State Department Lawyers Warned in 2002 That Denying Terror Suspects' Geneva Conventions Rights Could Upset U.S. Courts, Make Officials Vulnerable to War Crimes Charges
Another possible side effect is that other countries, emboldened by the ruling, could use the case to justify efforts to bring war crimes charges against CIA officers, U.S. service members and traveling government officials who had a hand in authorizing or carrying out harsh treatment of prisoners. "This has opened up a can of worms," says Sen. Lindsay Graham, a South Carolina Republican. "You could have a situation if we don't bring some restraint where anybody who has done anything to an Al Qaeda suspect that's harsh could be prosecuted." Bowker says he and other State Department lawyers specifically warned about just such a scenario during the early debates. "The implications of this -- for potentially being arrested and tried in other countries -- is certainly a little scary," says Ted Olson, the former Solicitor General.
Human Rights First Expresses Serious Concerns About the Nomination of William Haynes To Be U.S. Circuit Judge
As General Counsel of the Department of Defense, Mr. Haynes helped to formulate policies governing detainee interrogation and detention that violated U.S. and international law. He recommended that detainees in Guantanamo could be subjected to abusive interrogation techniques, including stripping them naked, depriving them of light, forcing them into stress positions, forcibly shaving them, and using dogs to intimidate them. He also advised that using wet towels and dripping water to make the detainees believe they are suffocating (waterboarding) and threatening them and their families with death might be “legally available” options.
UN Expert: US, EU, Others Ignoring Rights Abuses By Israel
GENEVA (AP)--A U.N. human rights expert Wednesday criticized the U.S., E.U., Russia and the U.N. for effectively punishing the Palestinian people by ignoring countless Israeli violations of human rights, international law and other standards.\ACQDJON200607051154DOWJONESDJONLINE000496.htm&selected=9999&selecteddisplaysymbol=9999&StoryTargetFrame=_top&mkt=WORLD&chk=unchecked&lang=&link=&headlinereturnpage=

Libertarian Comment on the News
About 40 news article of the week with comments that are sometimes better than the articles.
A New Declaration by Congressman Ron Paul
On the fourth day of July, in 1776, a small group of men, representing 13 colonies in the far-off Americas, boldly told the most powerful nation on earth that they were free.
It is easy to simply blame faceless bureaucrats and politicians for our current state of affairs, and they do bear much of the blame. But blame also rests with those who expect Washington DC to solve every problem under the sun. If the public demanded that Congress abide by the Constitution and pass only constitutional spending bills, politicians would have no choice but to respond.
Town of Fairfax Urges Congress to Impeach Bush and Cheney

The Saga of the No Permanent Bases
This issue is very much alive in both the House and the Senate! A recap of what has happened with the No Permanent Bases in congress follows:
VIDEO: Separation of Powers: Restoring the Balance Among the Branches
ACS has posted streaming video of a plenary panel at our recent 2006 National Convention on the “Separation of Powers: Restoring the Balance Among the Branches.” While the discussion did precede the recent Hamdan decision, it remains an insightful exploration of activities in which the Bush Administration has engaged since 9/11 pursuant to expansive assertions of presidential authority, including the expanded use of presidential signing statements, warrantless domestic surveillance, enemy combatant designations, military tribunals and torture.
UK ID card scheme near collapse, as Blair pushes cut-down 'variant'
The UK ID card scheme is doomed to fail, and an attempt to put a face-saving downscaled version into place threatens to wreck the project sooner, rather than later, according to civil service correspondence. An email exchange between David Foord of the Office of Government Commerce and Peter Smith, acting commercial director of the Identity and Passport Service, leaked to the Sunday Times, paints a picture of an impossible mission, a "Mr Blair" driving a cut-down "early variant" card and a Passport Service already making contingency plans in anticipation of ID cards crashing in flames.
Bush needs a reminder: Law applies to him, too
Once again, the chief executive had to be reminded that he is not above the law. No more than the security threats Nixon invented in order to justify his rogue police-state operations will the war on terror relieve the president of the burden imposed by the Constitution to “faithfully execute the laws.” He can’t just make them up to suit his convenience.
U.S.-Mexico merger opposition intensifies
It may be the biggest story of the 21st century, but few press outlets are telling it. In fact, until very recently, few in the U.S. were aware of the plans and even fewer denouncing what appears to be the implementation of an effort some have characterized as "NAFTA on steroids."

His daughter-in-law miscarries her child, the little girl Farah is moderately injured and the baby of the family, Khaled, is critically injured in the head. A puddle of blood collects on the floor.
UN warns of Gazans' struggle to survive:
He said in the north of Gaza Israeli forces had shot and destroyed rooftop water tanks and mains, while in the south more than 1,000 people had been forced to leave their homes. Rafah had no electricity because the army would not allow the UN to fix a minor fault, while the rest of Gaza had electricity for six hours a day.,,329525185-103552,00.html

Feds: 3 dead as U.S., French agents seized British evidence in covered up Capitol Hill gunfight
Bush administration officials operated Memorial Day weekend damage control to cover up the deaths of three foreign intelligence operatives—two British and one French—involved in a Friday morning shootout in the House of Representatives parking garage. (This is a hardcore conspiracy article. If you are unaware or disbelieve the basic physics and film evidence in the inside-job destruction of the WTC, this is not the article to start.)
Would-be attorney tries to shed ties to '87 murder (Murderer tries to shed ties to become would-be attorney)
Nearly 20 years ago, Nadine Walter, suspected of plotting to kill prominent Carpentersville attorney Timothy McNamee, traded testimony that helped convict a former boyfriend in the murder for an opportunity to build a new life in Florida. (Boyfriend goes to jail for murdering lawyer of Nadine Walter's ex-husband. There is no motive for the boyfriend to kill Nadine Walter's ex-husband's attorney, except Nadine Walter. Nadine Walter gets off free as a bird and a new identity. Nadine Walter gets to get another identity. Nadine Walter gets sympathy for being the sole source of a murder. Nadine Walter gets to keep her children. Poor Nadine Walter, she needs to get on with her life. If the name was Nate Walter one wonders where he would be now? Oh, that's right, we know, he'd be in jail for life just like poor Nadine Walter's boyfriend. Without these basic court and media facts, the current government fascism would have been much harder to implement and keep.),1,716...
