Diane Feinstein routs Attorney General -- stunned silence ensues!
This was, the most memorable moment of this morning's Judiciary hearing ABOUT WIRETAPPING AMERICANS!!. Essentially, it went like this:
Senator Dianne Feinstein : "About FISA, you say that the President has the authority to wiretap Americans without warrants due to his war powers under Article 2, correct?"
Attorney General Gonzales: "Yes."
Senator Dianne Feinstein : "So if the AUMF is not a declaration of war, the president shouldn't have WAR powers!"
Attorney General Gonzales:"................." silence for a very long time.. whispers in chambers... transmission ceases.

Oman Trade Pact Permits Foreign Ownership of U.S. Nat’l Security Assets
In an explosive report tonight, top House Democrats discovered provisions in the controversial Oman Free Trade Agreement that would permit foreign ownership of U.S. ports and other key national security assets. Three Democrats and one Republican held an emergency press conference today to expose the provisions just before the House is scheduled to vote on the Oman pact on Thursday. As Reuters reports in the story attached, "Rep. John Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat who serves on the House Defense Appropriations subcommittee, said the pact would allow companies such as Dubai Ports World to acquire U.S. port operations by establishing a shell company in Oman." Those provisions might also allow foreign ownership of other key national security assets, considering just after the recent Dubai Ports controversy, that country went ahead with plans to purchase a major U.S. defense contractor.

Stop the Specter bill and save the Fourth Amendment!
The President’s warrantless wiretapping program violates the Fourth Amendment prohibition against wiretapping Americans without a warrant, which must be obtained by showing a judge there is a valid reason for the search. Yet, instead of holding the president accountable, Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter has teamed up with the White House to draft S. 2453 (nicknamed the “Cheney-Specter bill”), which would legalize the illegal wiretapping program and any other current and future secret programs the administration wants to use to spy on Americans—without ever having to secure a single warrant.

Rep.

Rep. Gil Gutknecht (Minn.), once a strong supporter of the war, returned from Iraq this week declaring that conditions in Baghdad were far worse "than we'd been led to believe" and urging that troop withdrawals begin immediately.

Don't look at the man behind the curtain! Look at the BS FLUFF!)
Republicans leaders in the House and Senate said yesterday they were unlikely to muster the two-thirds vote in both chambers to override the veto. The House is scheduled to vote on the veto override later today. Bush's action puts him at odds with a majority of Americans who polls show support expanding research on stem cells, which scientists say may hold the key to treatments for Parkinson's disease, diabetes and other illnesses.

DOD 2003 Long Range Weather Forecast: An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for United States National Security
By 2005 the climatic impact of the shift is felt more intensely in certain regions around the world. More severe storms and typhoons bring about higher storm surges and floods in low-lying islands such as Tarawa and Tuvalu (near New Zealand). In 2007, a particularly severe storm causes the ocean to break through levees in the Netherlands making a few key coastal cities such as The Hague unlivable. Full reports at:

Wayne Madsen on Israel's WMD poison gas usage - WMR reported that the Israeli military was using poison gas on villages in south Lebanon. According to a former U.S. weapons expert who served in Iraq, the artillery shell in a photo taken in Lebanon (below) is a chemical weapon delivery device. It is being handled by an Israeli Defense Force soldier and Hebrew lettering can be clearly seen on the armored vehicle. Another chemical weapons shell of the same type can be seen lying on the ground to the right. It is not known what type of chemical is in the chemical canister, however, gas dropped by the Israelis in villages in southern Lebanon has resulted in severe vomiting among the civilian population.

Tim Russert Interviewed by Jack Blood on 9/11 Truth
Tim, did you know that Morgan Reynolds, former Chief Economist in the Department of Labor, under George Bush, has come out and said he thinks 9/11 was an inside job? So has Ray McGovern, CIA analyst who briefed both Bush and Reagan; Paul Craig Roberts the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury [and] father of Reaganomics; and among others Lieutenant Colonel, Bob Bowman, who was the former director of advanced space programs development under Ford and Carter. These people all coming out now in this thing they call the 9/11 truth movement and saying that they believe that not only did our government allow this to happen and cover it up . . . and polls, Zogby polls are even reflecting that a lot of Americans are believing this as well, but they believe that they [members of the US govt.] had something to do with the attacks. Does that astound you? Audio at:

The Unfolding Horror Show
Will (More) Americans Join Iraqis, Lebanese and Palestinians as Neocon Victims?
What explains the indifference of the Bush administration to the slaughter of civilians in Iraq, Lebanon, and Gaza? As of the morning of July 19, Israeli bombardments of Lebanese civilian residential districts and public infrastructure have murdered 300 Lebanese, wounded 1,000, and displaced 500,000. The Lebanese prime minister said that Israel’s attack has caused “unimaginable losses” and that his government will seek compensation from Israel. In Gaza Israel has murdered scores of Palestinian civilians in the past few days. In Iraq the civilian daily death toll has risen above 100. These dead are not Hezbollah militia. They are not Hamas militia. They are not al Qaeda or Sunni insurgents. They are civilians.

Florida's Fear of History: New Law Undermines Critical Thinking
Florida’s lawmakers are not only prescribing a specific view of US history that must be taught (my favorite among the specific commands in the law is the one about instructing students on “the nature and importance of free enterprise to the United States economy”), but are trying to legislate out of existence any ideas to the contrary. They are not just saying that their history is the best history, but that it is beyond interpretation. In fact, the law attempts to suppress discussion of the very idea that history is interpretation.
