The decay of American democracy

The decay of American democracy By Patrick Martin 02 Nov 2010 In the 2008 presidential election, Obama’s victory was a triumph of media manipulation and illusion-making. The candidate, a virtual unknown with only four years in the US Senate, was selected and groomed by power brokers and moneymen in the Democratic Party, then packaged as a fresh-faced insurgent who would bring "hope" and "change." He took office amid celebratory declarations that the first African-American president represented a milestone in democratic progress. Two years later, the disillusionment is all the more profound.

Stewart/Colbert rally preaches compromise and complacency

Stewart/Colbert rally preaches compromise and complacency By Joseph Kishore 01 Nov 2010 On Saturday, US comedic television hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert organized a demonstration that drew over 200,000 under the slogan "Rally for Sanity." ...The basic sentiment that Stewart sought to cultivate was one of complacency. The rally was called in the midst of the greatest economic crisis in generations, but there was absolutely no mention--either before or during the event--of the desperate situation facing millions of people. There was nothing about the ongoing wars carried out by both political parties that have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands. There was no hint of the unprecedented attack on democratic rights in the United States. According to Stewart’s analysis, the immense divisions that are emerging in American society are little more than a media creation. The outlook is in fact preposterous.

Dr Bhatti, a GP who has advised several PCTs on public health initiatives, is now trying to negotiate school admission changes with Lancashire County Council to include the jab amongst the criteria.

Cargo plane bomb plot tipoff came from ex-Guantanamo Bay detainee

Cargo plane bomb plot tipoff came from ex-Guantánamo Bay detainee --Jabir al-Fayfi, suspected by Yemen of being a double agent planted by Saudi Arabia, alerted officials to bomb plot 02 Nov 2010 Yemen has revealed that a former Guantánamo Bay detainee who fled to the country from Saudi Arabia after his release by the US tipped off authorities about the plot to send bombs on cargo planes.

He had previously been captured by US forces in Afghanistan following the 2001 invasion and held at Guantánamo Bay until early 2007, when he was released to Saudi Arabia... The Yemeni security officials said they suspected the Saudis had planted al-Fayfi in al-Qaida in Yemen as a double agent.

The description is "relatively similar" to October cases in which shots were fired at the Pentagon, the National Museum of the Marine Corps and a vacant Marine recruiting station, said 1st Sgt.

Republicans set to win House, gain in Senate: Reuters/Ipsos poll

Republicans set to win House, gain in Senate: Reuters/Ipsos poll 01 Nov 2010 Americans unhappy with the economy are poised to hand control of the House of Representatives to Republicans in Tuesday elections that are shaping up as a rebuke of President Barack Obama [constantly caving to his Wall Street overlords], a Reuters/Ipsos poll found on Monday.

Crackdown on air security will single out high-risk travellers

Crackdown on air security will single out high-risk travellers --Home Secretary Theresa May has refused to rule out the introduction of passenger profiling. --Plotters used 'dry run' in September in preparation --'Ink bomb' had enough explosive to blast 50 jets 02 Nov 2010 Millions of air travellers face sweeping new security tests, including passenger profiling and checks against a secret watchlist, it has emerged. Searches could be carried out according to race, ethnicity, age and gender... The examinations will also check for criminal convictions, immigration problems and links to terror suspects. Under the prospective rules people could find themselves placed on enhanced Home Office no-fly lists, which will see them turned away when they arrive at the airport. Alternatively, they will be added to a larger list of those who should be subject to special measures such as enhanced screening.

A Gut Renovation, With the Secret Service Watching

A Gut Renovation, With the Secret Service Watching 02 Nov 2010 (Chicago) Showing up to check on the construction progress, the owners of the stately old brick house being renovated on Greenwood Avenue could be forgiven for feeling a bit stressed. There are blockades at each end of the block, and signs warn people that they need permission from federal authorities to go any farther. Every carpenter, roofer and mason to set foot on the job site must submit to a background check... Home renovation can be so much fun. What makes this project even more of an adventure is that the next-door neighbors -- a very nice couple, two young daughters, a dog -- are named Obama.

U.S. Feared Parcel Bomb Plot Was Coming; Saw September 'Dry Run' --Saudi Intelligence Provided UPS, FedEx Tracking Numbers to Stop 'Real Thing' 01 Nov 2010 US intelligence officials feared that al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] terrorists in Yemen were plotting to attack the United States and actually intercepted what they now believe were "dry run" shipments to Chicago in mid-September, according to several people briefed on the plot and a senior US official. The senior US official told ABC News that the "dry run" involved a carton of household goods including books, religious literature, and a computer disk, but no explosives, shipped from Yemen to an address in Chicago by "someone with ties to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula." [This is the quasi-confession that will soon morph into -- on a busy Election Day when no one is paying attention -- 'We carried out both the dry run and the actual run.']

Stewart-Colbert rally draws polite throng to D.C.

Stewart-Colbert rally draws polite throng to D.C. 31 Oct 2010 It was a vast, polite celebration of keeping it civil, keeping it sane. In their much-touted Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on Saturday, Comedy Central twin threats Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert treated thousands packed in the National Mall to jokes, music, repetitions of the Wave, and a profound message: No matter what happens in this election, lots of people want to be reasonable. [Useless is as useless does. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert refuse to offend the US Reichwing and their corporaterrorist overlords. Instead, they 'insanely' call for 'compromise.' The GOP/teabaggers do not compromise. This refusal to compromise -- while Democrats do nothing *but* compromise -- has fueled the GOP's rise to power. Hence, Stewart and Colbert's call to 'compromise' is a de facto call to *surrender.* --LRP]
