CLG: Are You One of Obama's 'Lone Wolf' Suspects? By Lori Price, Citizens For Legitimate Government 18 Sep 2009 Yesterday, we read: White House Backs Controversial Domestic Surveillance Provisions. The Obama administration is urging lawmakers to extend three provisions of the controversial domestic surveillance law known as the USA Patriot Act. The U.S. Justice Department issued a letter Tuesday asking Congress to renew provisions of the law that allow authorities to conduct roving electronic eavesdropping, or wiretaps, access business records and track so-called "lone wolf" suspects with no known links to foreign powers or terrorist groups... I say, we are all 'lone wolf' suspects, ready to howl and bray at the injustices that were not eradicated when Barack Obama took office. Indeed, the injustice and malfeasance is growing under President Obama. Despite the premise and unending promises of 'change,' the only 'change' that we see is a deepening of the entrenchment of policies and ideologies of the Bush regime, and a lack of willingness of the political Left to question and/or attack the sad and sorry trail of Obama's broken promises. Sign up to be one of Obama's 'lone wolf' suspects (activists) on Facebook and (other sites forthcoming), so that we form a pack, er pac!

Help Stop the International Polar Bear Trade 03 Sep 2009 In some countries, collectors can still buy polar bear skin rugs, claws, skulls and other parts of these animals -- even as these beloved bears struggle for survival in a warming world.

But officials need to hear from you. Take action now -- Urge the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to propose an international ban on the trade of polar bear products. Please take action today -- the deadline for comments is Friday, 11 September.

CLG Action Alert! Boycott Israel's IKEA Boycott --Shop Till You Drop at IKEA to Counteract Israel's Boycott! --Posted by Lori Price, 24 Aug 2009

Thousands of Israelis petition to boycott Sweden retailer IKEA By Adi Dovrat and Irit Rosenblum, Haaretz 23 Aug 2009 Thousands of Israelis have signed an online petition to boycott the Swedish furniture retailer IKEA, in the wake of a controversial article published in the Swedish daily Aftonbladet that suggested that Israeli soldiers "harvested" the organs of Palestinians. The signatories were also dismayed at the refusal of the Stockholm government to denounce the allegations under the banner of press freedom. Various figures in the Israeli government have harshly criticized the article and demanded, to no avail, that the Swedish government issue a condemnation. On Sunday it emerged that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to press Stockholm for an official condemnation.

[See CLG's Russian Venture Capitalist Costs Workers Jobs and Income During Economic Meltdown 10 Dec 2009 Russian billionaire Sergei A.

Quick action! Tell President Obama you support transparency and accountability. (ACLU) 13 May 2009 The very fact that photos of torture and abuse exist, only underscores the need for transparency, accountability and for a full investigation of crimes committed.

Join the ACLU in calling on President Obama to put the full weight of his leadership behind our call for transparency and accountability. (Sign petition.)

Quick action! Keep your promise, President Obama --Tell the President to end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and not fire Lt. Dan Choi (Courage Campaign) 14 May 2009 Lt. Dan Choi, from Orange County, California, is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and an Iraq War veteran. Last March he went on Rachel Maddow's show and spoke three truthful words: "I am gay." As a result Lt. Choi received a letter from the Army on April 23 discharging him for violating the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy... Lt. Choi is fighting to stay in the military and ensure that no other soldier is ever again discharged as a result of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." President Obama did not create this policy. But he now has the opportunity to keep his promise and allow gay and lesbian soldiers to serve openly in the military. It's the right thing to do -- for justice and for national security. (Sign petition.)

Reps. Wexler, Gutierrez, and Baldwin Call for Cheney Impeachment Hearings By Bob Fertik 14 Dec 2007 Three members of the House Judiciary Committee, Representatives Robert Wexler, Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), have issued a joint editorial calling for the Judiciary Committee and Congress to immediately hold impeachment hearings for Vice President [sic] Richard Cheney. The editorial entitled "A Case for Hearings," cites significant allegations made against Vice President Dick Cheney including "deceptive actions leading up to the Iraq war, the revelation of the identity of a covert agent for political retaliation, and the illegal wiretapping of American citizens."

Join Wexler's Call for Cheney Hearings --The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President [sic] abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccesary war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings.

Polar Bear SOS --Tell the Bush regime to protect polar bears and their critical habitat --Polar bears are completely dependent on Arctic sea ice to survive, but 80 percent of that ice could be gone in 20 years and all of it by 2040... The Bush Administration's proposal to list the polar bear as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act is a crucial first step toward ensuring a future for these magnificent Arctic creatures. Yet the administration's proposal does not designate "critical habitat" for protection, even though melting habitat from global warming is the main threat to the polar bear's survival.
Send a message urging the Bush Administration to finalize the listing of the polar bear and designate its critical habitat.

Penn. : Urgent message from PA Democratic Party Chairman, T.J. Rooney 30 Dec 2006 Earlier today, Democratic Representative Tom Caltagirone of Berks County announced his intention to support Republican John Perzel for the position of Speaker of the House. Make no mistake – this is an act of political treason! [...] On Tuesday, the House will begin the new session and elect a Speaker. Democrats have nominated Representative Bill DeWeese. Democrats hold a ONE vote majority in the State House. We can't let one power-hungry politician feather his own nest by selling out the party he has called home for over 30 years that he has spent in Harrisburg. 1. Call Caltagirone at (610) 371-9940 and demand he re-think his despicable decision. 2. E-mail Caltagirone at and demand he vote to elect Democrat Bill DeWeese Speaker of the House. 3. Attend a rally in front of Caltagirone’s office on Tuesday at 3pm. His office is located at 645 Penn Street in Reading. Caltagirone must be stopped. This blatant sell-out must not occur. Too many Democrats, for too many years, have worked too hard to let this one devious, power-hungry politician abuse the voters of Pennsylvania!!!

Voting machine firm's past questioned 05 Feb 2006 (PA) Diebold Inc. soon may sell 5,600 touch-screen voting machines to Allegheny County. In 2003, then-chief executive officer Wally O'Dell -- a top fund-raiser for President [sic] Bush's re-s-election campaign -- sent out a letter to Ohio Republicans promising that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President next year." Diebold has told Allegheny County that it could deliver 5,600 machines by the May 16 primary election, at a cost of $11.9 million. But the county's elections board, which meets Tuesday, needs to decide soon.
