Direct Action for Katrina Survivors
09 Feb 2006
On Monday, February 13th, the New Orleans homeless population will skyrocket, and the survivors of Katrina will be victimized again.

The National Guard is even on call to evict these survivors at gun point.

Pants on Fire: the Liars of the Bush Administration will take the world down in flames if we let them
09 Feb 2006
Sam Alito is merely the latest liar on the block for Bush’s full spectrum dominance agenda. But the show-trial hearings on whether this proto-FASCIST IDEOLOGUE should be allowed to shape US social and political development for a generation provide some nuggets of insight into how the corrupt junta’s pathological liars actually work.

Tyrant in the White House - Bush Crosses the Rubicon
09 Feb 2006
SameShit.jpgDictatorships seldom appear full-fledged but emerge piecemeal. When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon with one Roman legion he broke the tradition that protected the civilian government from victorious generals and launched the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. Fearing that Caesar would become a king, the Senate assassinated him. From the civil wars that followed, Caesar’s grand nephew, Octavian, emerged as the first Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus....

08 Feb 2006
January saw a rash of demonstrations against the
Bush Administration in the cold and rain but still
there is no Main Stream Media coverage of any of
those events.....not one word. News reports of
protests over the cartoon of Mohamed, however,
are everywhere, every day.

The corporate media continues to close it's eyes
to the growing dissent and calls for impeachment
even by members of Congress.

Many thousands of protesters in over 65 cities
banged pots and pans and drums and chanted
to drown out the State of the Union speech on Jan. 31.

Grand Juries and the Political Silencing of Dissent
08 Feb 2006
Modified: 05:27:25 PM
Imagine a courtroom in which the defense attorney is kept outside the room, the jury is selected by the prosecution, the defendants’ fifth amendment rights (including that against double jeopardy) are suspended, and the writ of habeas corpus is bypassed.
