Senate Democrats Cave under Republican Pressure to Renew PATRIOT ACT Without Protective Oversight

Senate DEMS Cave under Republican Pressure to Renew PATRIOT ACT Without Protective Oversight

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press - Wednesday, February 24, 2010; 9:25 PM

WASHINGTON -- The Senate voted Wednesday to extend for a year key provisions of the nation's counterterrorism surveillance law that are scheduled to expire at the end of the month. In agreeing to pass the bill, Senate Democrats retreated from adding new privacy protections to the USA Patriot Act.

The Judiciary Committee bill would have restricted FBI information demands known as national security letters and made it easier to challenge gag orders imposed on Americans whose records are seized.

Library records would have received extra protections. Congress would have closely scrutinized FBI use of the law to prevent abuses. Dissemination of surveillance results would have been restricted and after a time, unneeded records would have been destroyed.

The Binary Fallacy and the End of Both Parties

The Binary Fallacy and

The End of Both Parties

Michael Collins

(Wash., DC) The results of eight years of Bush-Cheney at the helm make the demise of the Republican Party an easy call. Our financial system is on life support. The major banks are insolvent, according to banking and legal authority William K. Black. If they're not, they're in intensive care. No matter how many trillions of dollars worth of infusions they receive, they're not making loans. The economy is in a free fall with growth down 6% a quarter and job losses running at nearly 600,000 a month. We're stuck in two catastrophic wars. Despite President Obama's election, we're viewed with suspicion and disregard throughout the world.

Mukasey dishonesty update

http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2008/04/18/mukasey/index.html

There are several updates in the ongoing fallout from Michael Mukasey's patently false claims made in the speech he delivered several weeks ago in San Francisco regarding FISA and the 9/11 attacks. This week, Mukasey responded to a letter he received from John Conyers and two other Subcommittee Chair in which Mukasey acknowledged (because he was forced to) that the call he claimed originated from an "Afghan safe house" into the U.S. was fictitious, but he nonetheless vaguely asserted that his underlying point -- that FISA unduly restricted pre-9/11 eavesdropping and prevented detection of those attacks -- was somehow still accurate.

Mukasey's 'non responsive' explanation of pre-9/11 intercept criticized

http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Mukaseys_non_responsive_explanation_of_pre911_0418.html

The Justice Department has acknowledged that Attorney General Michael Mukasey was mistaken when he told a San Francisco crowd that intelligence agencies couldn't trace a pre-9/11 phone call from Afghanistan to the United States.

Whether he was deliberately lying or simply misinformed is still an open question, but the administration is sticking to the general arguments Mukasey outline, provoking intense furor from House Democrats.

Mukasey's deputy said the attorney general was referring to a phone call placed not from Afganistan but another unidentified country before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In an April 10 letter to members of the House Judiciary Committee, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski stuck to the general line being advanced by Mukasey and others in the Bush administration -- that limitations on foreign intelligence collection within the US meant to protect Americans civil liberties hindered efforts to detect the 9/11 plot before it happened.

Rotten to the Core

[Updated to include Pelosi's refusal to conduct a new 9/11 investigation]

Those who still have hope that the Democrats will save them from the Neoconservatives have forgotten something.

The Democratic leadership in the country does not give 2 cents about what is best for the American people. Don't believe me?

Cindy Sheehan recently revealed "John Conyers told me ... that winning the presidency in ’08 was more important to him than ending the war in Iraq." Get it? The head of the Judiciary Committee, charged with upholding the rule of law in America, cares more about politics than about the Constitution, the people or the country.

Similarly, Speaker of the House Pelosi refuses to impeach or conduct a new 9/11 investigation.

Pelosi touts progress on 9/11 bill

By ERICA WERNER, Associated Press Writer1 hour, 24 minutes ago

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used the Democrats' weekly radio address Saturday to tout her party's passage of legislation to implement major recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.

The House passed the bill Friday on a 371-40 vote, a day after the Senate passed it 85-8. The White House said the president would sign it.

The legislation would shift money to high-risk states and cities, expand screening of air and sea cargo and put money into a new program to ensure that security officials at every level can communicate with each other.

'It's up to you now': Sheehan quits

I was at first going to highlight specific segments of this article in bold letters but have decided instead to endorse the whole thing. It certainly serves as a wake-up call to all activists -- both of anti-war AND 9/11 truth.

'It's up to you now': Sheehan quits

By ANGELA K. BROWN, Associated Press Writer

Cindy Sheehan, the soldier's mother who galvanized an anti-war movement with her monthlong protest outside President Bush's ranch, said Tuesday she's done being the public face of the movement.

"I've been wondering why I'm killing myself and wondering why the Democrats caved in to George Bush," Sheehan told The Associated Press while driving from her property in Crawford to the airport, where she planned to return to her native California.

"I'm going home for awhile to try and be normal," she said.

In what she described as a "resignation letter," Sheehan wrote in her online diary on the "Daily Kos" blog: "Good-bye America ... you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can't make you be that country unless you want it.

Taming the beast!

Taming the beast!

April 2, 2007 -- The neo-conservatives’ six years in power have turned the country into a ferocious beast, despised more than feared by the people of the world, except for certain client governments, while domestically, the country is no longer recognizable by the staunchest of patriots as their place of birth.

In November 2006, the country spoke and voted into power their only alternative, the Democrats, and tasked them with finding a way out of Iraq and preventing wider wars.

Pelosi surrendered impeachment, the only weapon the Democrats had, before the elections, and by bowing to the wishes of AIPAC, took out any language from the appropriation bill that would force Bush to come to Congress prior to any military action against Iran; again ceding the power to wage war to an irresponsible president. Pelosi tells us that such language is not good for Israel.

The Neo-cons, with AIPAC clearly on their side and the Democrats at bay, are not too concerned.

I am proud of Rosie, but Cynthia McKinney is one of our greatest patriots...

From Cynthia's most recent email - make sure you check out her latest speech - it is brilliant. Also please help her retire her campaign debt!:

My friends! Some great things are happening and I want to update you on them all--or at least the ones I can remember right now!

First of all, St. Patrick's Day is my birthday and I received a wonderful message from my son saying how atypical his mom is: she spent her birthday protesting the government! Well, the message was wonderful because he at least remembered it was my birthday! We're making progress here . . .

Is Iran War Finally Opening Democrats' Eyes to The Reality of False Flags?

Its news when a large left gatekeeper site covers false flag terror. Here, a diary about Zbigniew Brzezinski and Operation Northwoods has become a Recommended Diary at Daily Kos, which means it will be widely read. Is the impending war with Iran FINALLY opening Democrats' eyes to the reality of false flags?

Brzezinski eviscerates Bushco, tries to warn world (world looks the other way)! "I think that our Iran policy is a train wreck in the making."

Senator Chris Dodd, here

This is astounding and I'm surprised it hasn't been covered more extensively here.

The "Mainstream Media" has IGNORED this. Gosh, I wonder why ....

For Zbigniew Brzezinski, in testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, absolutely DESTROYED Bushco's web of lies regarding the "War on Terror", Iraq and Iran.

Senator Hospitalized: Balance of Power on the Line

The first thing I thought of when I read this story was Paul Wellstone.

From CNN:

Staff: Senator hospitalized with stroke-like symptoms
Sen. Tim Johnson, D-South Dakota, was hospitalized Wednesday after he suffered stroke-like symptoms in his Washington office, his staff said.

Johnson, who turns 60 on December 28, was taken to George Washington University Hospital by ambulance about 11:30 a.m., sources in his office said.

A statement issued by Johnson's office said he was suffering from a "possible stroke."

"At this stage he is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation by the stroke team," the statement said. Staffers said that Johnson was conscious when he was transported to the hospital.

A lawyer and longtime state lawmaker, Johnson was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1986. He served five terms before he was elected to the Senate in 1996.

He is the senior senator from South Dakota and serves on numerous committees, including appropriations, budget, banking, energy and natural resources, and Indian affairs.
