MAN TRAPPED IN CHOCOLATE VAT By Peter Fredson August 20, 2006 Every day I sift through the Google News items. The other day I found several items that intrigued me. After reading about Iraq War failures, the casualty lists, the threats against Iran and watching John Bolton, now we can listen to all the nasty details of the murder of little JonBenet, day after day. I also read that a Black Female Judge told George Bush that he had to stop his wire-tapping. reminding him that we have no (...)

Judge’s ruling may provide grounds to impeach Bush
By : Capital Hill Blue - Sunday August 20, 2006
1 comment
If a judge’s ruling that declares President George W. Bush’s domestic spying program unconstitutional holds up under appeal, the President will be guilty of violating federal law at least 30 times and that could provide grounds for impeachment, says a leading Constitutional scholar. Jonathan Turley, law professor at George Washington University and a recognized expert on constitutional law, says the ruling Thursday by a federal judge in Detroit raises "serious implications for (...)

Israel Must Be Held Accountable For Its International Law Violations On June 25, the Palestinians responded to continued, unrelenting and unjustifiable Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) attacks against them by striking at an Israeli military post near Kerem Shalom crossing, southeast of Rafah, killing two IDF soldiers, injuring several others, and capturing (not "kidnapping) a third. It set off a swift and deadly IDF response of daily killings and mass destruction in the Occupied Palestinian (...)

Once again we are eager to accept appearance for reality. The Supreme Court ruling last week rejecting President George W.

Bush’s Assault On Freedom: What’s To Stop Him? By Paul Craig Roberts July 3, 2006 On June 29, the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-3 decision ruled that President Bush’s effort to railroad tortured Guantanamo Bay detainees in kangaroo courts "violates both U.S. law and the Geneva Conventions." Better late than never, but it sure took a long time for the checks and balances to call a halt to the illegal and unconstitutional behavior of the executive. The Legal Times quotes (...)

The Grinch Who Stole Fitzmas
By : JusticeDelayed - Tuesday June 13, 2006

Fitzgerald explained that his investigation should not be interpreted as a vindication of a political point of view. I’d recommend reviewing his October, 2005 press conference. Even if indicted, Rove would have faced crimes that had nothing to do with his political point of view or his notorious style as a Republican political guru, and everything to do with his breaking the law. The facts surrounding the Plame case are still far from resolved, so it would be pre-mature to assume (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
