********FOURTH REICH: UNITED STATES********



*"DETENTION FACILITIES": US CONCENTRATION CAMPS*

"Detention facility for immigrants criticized":
http://tinyurl.com/2lllfo
--or--
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/21/AR200702

(naturally, the CIA/Washington Post puts a shiny gloss over these facilities which are concentration camps clearly designed to hold large numbers of people against their will.)




*HABEAS CORPUS*

Federal appeals court decides those illegally-detained at the Guantanamo Bay concentration do not have Habeas Corpus rights:
http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/16740785.htm

(Habeas Corpus goes back to 1215. too bad America is too busy watching American Idol to know more of what is being stolen from them.)


Court rules that detainess cannot challenge their indefinite detention!
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17239258/

(they're being held by the US military at US-military-controlled Guantanamo bay. they're being held in violation of US law as well as international law.)




*GUANTANAMO BAY: AMERICA'S CONCENTRATION CAMP*

Guantanamo detainees to be held indefinitely, even without charges:
http://tinyurl.com/y4kbvy
--or--

(they're defying international law and human rights that date back to 1215.)





*FEDERAL AUTHORITY*

http://www.progress.org/2007/ussr03.htm

Dictator Bush signs new executive order granting him more right to control government rules and policy statements concerning public health, safety, civil rights and privacy:
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/30/washington/30rules.html?_r=1&oref=slog




*IRAN WAR PRETEXT: FALSE-FLAG 'ATTACK'*

Surprise! weapons used in attack in southeastern Iran came from US:
http://english.people.com.cn/200702/18/eng20070218_350985.html


Why is the US press silent on Brzezinski's warnings of war against Iran?
http://tinyurl.com/2vm3a4
--or--
www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=GRE20070214&art

"...Most significant and disturbing was Brzezinski’s suggestion that the Bush administration might manufacture a pretext to justify a military attack on Iran..."

*MILITARY TRIBUNALS*

Pentagon (and, not US Constitution) sets rules for detainee trials:

Bush wants to make tax cuts for the rich permanent
http://www.wsws.org/articles/2007/feb2007/tax-f07.shtml

"...The tax cuts, a wholesale looting of the federal treasury to the advantage of the rich, have been promoted by the administration as an economic boon..."




*BOTTOMLESS WAR BUDGET*

Bush to propose record US war budget
http://www.wsws.org/articles/2007/feb2007/war-f05.shtml

"...more than $700 billion in military spending this year, including $245 billion to fund the ongoing wars of aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan..."

*SYRIA*

'The Media Line' claims that Syria is moving forces near Israel, as well as accepting Iranian support:

********GENERAL NEWS********



*JANET BLAIR, RIP*

(I don't think i ever saw Janet in anything, even though i'm a film buff and love the '40s.

it is getting increasingly difficult to remember the glamour, excitement and artistic glory that accompanied the US movie industry in the first half of the 20th century. once the CIA and corporate suits took over Hollywood it was doomed. the current version is just a miserable relic of what it once was.)




*DENNIS JOHNSON, RIP*

Dennis Johnson dies:
http://tinyurl.com/27cuh4
--or--
http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=ap-obit-johnson&prov=ap&type=lgns

(btw...that famous play where Bird stole the ball and Johnson put up the winning lay-up was cheating. Bird had two steps out of bounds. the refs didn't blow the whistle on Bird, and the TV networks only showed the critical replay like once.)




*the INTERNET*

Republican congressman's bill would require ISPs to track users:
http://www.securityfocus.com/brief/439

"...Internet service providers (ISPs) to keep information about their users' identities and, possibly, their actions online..."




*MARINE LIFE*

http://tinyurl.com/2v453r
--or--
http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/02/19/homeless.attacks/index.html?eref=rss_to

(CNN Is perfectly capable of making this story up. however, the US is definitely moving rapidly in the direction of Nazi Germany.

my friends at Indymedia all probably can't wait until their 'Christmas' arrives and they can start killing people.)




*CORPORATE POWER*

Supreme Court throws out Philip Morris verdict:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17239146/

"...Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in his majority opinion that the award to Mayola Williams could not stand because a jury may punish a defendant only for the harm done to the person who is suing, not to others whose cases were not before it..."

(meanwhile, it is well known that cigarette companies spike their product with more nicotine than appears in nature, in order to hook their victims for life. if civil suits are disallowed, what ability does the general public have to control the behavior of a state-chartered organization?)




*US MILITARISM*

Russia warns neighbors of US militarizing space via "Missile defense":

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/suffolk/6327193.stm


(my theory: they're using HAARP...the point is to blame this on "avian flu", which is to be used as a pretext for mass quarantines and evictions.)

(is there any easier way to make money? giving those roads to corporations is unbelievably cancerous to civilized society. corporations have absolute power today.)





********WORLD FENCES/WALLS********



*PHYSICAL WALLS: PRISON PLANET*

Israel's "Separation Wall". The most barbaric open-air prison ever conceived in human history. It will effectively imprison millions of innocent people. Their very survival will be at the hands of Israel.

Saudia Arabia's Wall. The Saudis are building a huge wall between their border and Iraq. That's because the Negroponte-led false-flag attacks in Iraq is making that illegally occupied country dangerous.

US's upcoming Berlin wall with the Mexican border. The Bush Dictatorship just awarded Boeing a huge contract. (Boeing in turn is subcontracting to an Israeli company.) This wall between the US and Mexico is expected to have 1,800+ guard towers!

(once again, notice the length of Yahoo's URL. the government; i.e., Yahoo, doesn't want this story up for long. so they make the URL really long as a signal to take it down ASAP.)




*ZAMBIA*

"Saturn's Hyperion: a moon with odd craters":

********MISC********




*NFL*

I find it hilarious that the Chargers fired Marty Schottenheimer, replacing him with Norv Turner!

Turner has never won anywhere. meanwhile, Schottenheimer had the team primed to go all the way and just weren't lucky at the end. still, they went 14-2 in the regular season (losing once to Baltimore, btw). How do you fire a coach who was 14-2 during the regular season? how do you replace him with Norv Turner?

it is amazing how American culture is so frantic and anxious that a pro sports team would fire the coach who made the team one of the best in the league.)




*FRENCH OPEN*

Roland Garros, May 27 - June 10th:
http://www.fft.fr/rolandgarros/default_en.asp

(all eyes are on Nadal and Federer. can Federer win the French Open on slow clay? if Fed wins the Grand Slam this season it will just about cement his place as the greatest tennis player ever.

Standing in Federer's way, as he did in 2005 and 2006, is two-time champ Rafael Nadal.)
