Capitol Hill Blue: White House Lawyer Whines About Court Upholding Freedoms

"Solicitor General Theodore Olson used his final day as the Bush administration's top Supreme Court lawyer to lament the court's decision siding with foreign terrorism suspects over the president.
He said Friday that the court term that ended last week held no good news for conservatives, especially the ruling that opened American courts to "enemy combatants" being held at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"U.S. courts ... have never been extended so far," Olson told members of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.

Olson, whose wife died in the plane that crashed into the Pentagon during the Sept. 11 attacks, had argued before the justices that the president needed broad powers to hold and interrogate foreigners who might pose future threats without giving them access to courts.

The Supreme Court disagreed 6-3 and handed the Bush administration a separate loss in ruling that American citizens being held as enemy combatants in the United States also cannot be denied legal rights.

He said the rulings on the president's wartime power appear to overrule World War II-era Supreme Court decisions that gave the White House broad authority."

CNN.com - Affidavit:�Children made to dig own graves - July 9, 2004

"TRENTON, Tennessee (AP) -- A couple facing criminal abuse charges forced some of their 18 foster, adopted and biological children -- many of them disabled -- to dig their own graves, warning the youngsters they could be killed and nobody would care, according to investigative documents.

A search warrant affidavit released in the case against Thomas and Debra Schmitz also alleges that the children were beaten, locked in a cage and punished by having their eyeglasses, leg braces or crutches taken away.

A home care nurse told authorities the "children were forced to dig their own graves" and told by the couple "they could be killed and buried in the back yard and no one will care," according to the affidavit.

The nurse said she saw two children, ages 8 and 10, forced to sleep in a locked metal cage without a mattress or blankets. The youngsters were "curled in a fetal position in the cage," the affidavit said.

Debra Schmitz, 44, was charged on June 22 with three counts of aggravated child abuse and one count of child abuse; Thomas Schmitz, 45, was charged with one count of aggravated child abuse and one count of child abuse."

If you can stomach reading this, please read the full article.

If this couple if guilty of doing these things as described in the article, I cannot find words to express the depth of loathing I have for creatures as despicable as these, BUT,
oddly, this article fits in with two previous articles I have talked about, one being this "NEW FREEDOM" Initiative, and the other being the article about thousands of kids "languishing" in detention centers.

You may ask, WHY is this disturbing to you Code? I mean, isn't it a GOOD thing that these things are being exposed? Well, with regard to the last case, if things were as they are reported, it was vital to get these kids out of there...BUT, if some of these kids were foster kids, doesn't their version of Child Welfare have SOME duty to check out how things are going in the home? Didn't someone drop the ball?

But, more importantly, my concern is this. These articles, coming out, clustered in time, give the appearance that "someone" (read mass media along with the government), wants us, the public, to believe that all across the country, there are kids in bad situations and these kids NEED government intervention...be it the government turning them into wards of the state and putting them in the hands of state employees and the courts, OR, that the government needs to "test" them for mental fitness, and then "medicate" those which don't pass their subjective tests.

We remember in Russia and Germany, the actions of the state to get involved in becoming the surrogate parents, or "in loco parentis"...was done in order to indoctrinate kids, and to ultimately turn them also into little snitches turning their parents and friends in as enemies of the State.

CNN.com - Jackson prosecutor to take stand - Jul 9, 2004
"SANTA MARIA, California (AP) -- In a highly unusual move, the judge in the Michael Jackson child-molestation case ordered the district attorney Friday to take the stand and explain a raid on a private investigator's office.

Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville wants to know if the seizure of videotapes and computer hard drives from investigator Bradley Miller's office in November 2003 violated Jackson's attorney-client privilege.

The defense says Miller was working for the pop star's lawyer at the time, Mark Geragos.

District Attorney Tom Sneddon said Friday he did not know Miller was working for Geragos when authorities with a search warrant broke into Miller's office with sledgehammers.

"I have nothing to hide," Sneddon said."

McDonald's hit with fat lawsuit

"Public interest group says fast-food chain broke promise to reduce fat used to cook french fries.
July 9, 2004: 8:32 AM EDT

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - A public interest group is suing McDonald's, charging the fast food chain with false advertising due to its promise in 2002 that it would cut the "bad" fat used in its cooking process.

The group BanTransFats.com, Inc., a California not-for-profit group, filed a federal lawsuit in San Francisco Thursday, charging the company's delay in its promised reduction of trans fatty acids in its cooking process constitutes false advertising. "

GOOD! I hate McDonalds and I especially hate their french fries.
I've complained to my wife and others, when I've just tasted their fries, that McDonald's fries taste like cardboard to me...and are the WORST french fries I've found at ANY fast food place!

 

Archive.org suffers Fahrenheit 911 memory loss

NORMALLY, I LIKE TO DO MY OPINION EDITORIAL RANTS AND OPINION PIECES, BUT THIS ONE BY ASHLEE VANCE WAS SO GOOD THAT I WANTED TO PUBLISH PART OF IT, BECAUSE I AGREE WITH IT SO STRONGLY.
===========================================================
"By Ashlee Vance in Chicago
Published Friday 9th July 2004 16:13 GMT
Opinion You don't often think about libraries in terms of strength. Few mayors tout the large sack of the local book depository or put it up against a massive skyscraper during PR stunts. Libraries are pretty passive creatures that receive some credit for the quantity of volumes they hold but not much credit these days for being powerful entities.

That is until you run across something like Archive.org. For where the Library of Congress exudes strength, Archive.org piddles weakness. The site is really a reminder of how not far the Internet has come and how strong some old traditions really are.

The supposed Internet archiving site is not a passive entity at all. It doesn't simply collect more and more data for the use of researchers as it claims. Instead, Archive.org actively engages in odd publicity stunts and actively pulls down information. What could be weaker than a media-hungry library with disappearing material?

On Wednesday, Archive.org put up a copy of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911 documentary for download. The site was apparently responding to an interview in which Moore said he didn't mind people downloading the movie as long as the sites offering it didn't profit from the action. So Archive.org flexed its freedom of information/culture muscle and boldly offered the movie in a variety of formats.

An intern here in The Register's Chicago office was ordered to test the download out. It worked. Our intern - Streaming Sally - used the FreeCache technology Archive.org recommended, and the download took about 3 hours. The movie came in a bit choppy but certainly watchable - so Sally said.

But just hours after putting up the movie, Archive.org pulled it down. In the movie's place was a note that read, "This is under copyright, and archive.org needs to pull it before any damage happens."

Think of this as a child fondling a can of spray paint but then stepping away from the school wall before "any damage happens." Or a seven-year-old contemplating a ten-yard run with scissors in hand and then putting the weapon down before "any damage happens." How ever you think about it. It's clear that there are children running Archive.org - the kind that play copyright gags while doing shots of Pepsi late into the night.

We know this because Archive.org has long had a childlike relationship with information. Our first indication of this happened back in 2002. At that time, Intel has accidentally released the code-name of an upcoming project - Nehalem. One of Intel's engineers discussed the project in an interview conducted by Intel itself and posted on Intel's web site. Some schmuck of a reporter found the code-name and did a story on it."

I found "the waybackmachine" myself by accident some time ago.
While I liberally quote from other people's work, I would never do something as outright infringing as to copy someone else WHOLE WEBSITE and store it on a server, and offer it up...even several copies of it, WITHOUT THE EXPRESS PERMISSION OF THE AUTHOR/COPYRIGHT OWNER.

I believe my quotes fall within the "fair use" doctrine of the Copyright Act, but I can find no, I repeat, NO legal justification for the people at archive.org, to copy, without authorization, an ENTIRE PAGE or SITE, graphics, code, and all...
and, I must admit that I myself was pretty upset when I found the people at archive.org did all this copying of my copyrighted material, in a way that completely goes beyond fair use, without my authorization.

So...two thumbs up for Ashlee!

 

So Much for the Most Ethical Administration in History, Part III

"So Much for the Most Ethical Administration in History, Part III
And the hits just keep on coming. Rather than face reporters' questions on his relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth Lay, an obviously-rattled and upset President George W. Bush stomped off the stage of a media briefing Thursday, leaving Press Secretary Scott McClellan to deal with reporters.

But Bush cannot continue to hide from the increasing questions about his and his administration's cozy relationships with fast-buck artists like Lay. Vice President Dick Cheney faces criminal indictments in France for bribery, money laundering and misuse of corporate funds while CEO of Halliburton and even the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission is investigating Cheney's role in administering a $180 million slush fund that Halliburton used to pay bribes. At the same time, the White House Counsel's office says Cheney violated federal rules when he engineered a $7 billion no-bid contract for his former employer.

In addition, Bush's past ties to big-oil Saudi money and even the family of Osama bin Laden raise even more questions about the actions and morality of the man who four years ago promised us "the most ethical administration in history."

The names and faces may change at the White House but it seems corruption is a permanent resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Cheney Faces Criminal Indictments; Other Illegal Actions Raise Warning Flags at White House

Vice President Dick Cheney faces criminal indictments for illegal activities while CEO of energy giant Halliburton and also illegally intervened to secure a $7 billion no-bid contract for his former employer after his election to office, an analysis by the White House counsel’s office concludes.
The Vice President is currently under investigation by French authorities for bribery, money laundering and misuse of corporate assets while at Halliburton and also faces a U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission probe of a $180 million "slush fund" that may have been used to pay bribes.

Although the White House Counsel analysis is not available to the public because of the secrecy of “attorney-client privilege,” it has generated speculation among senior White House aides who suggest the Vice President should step down as President George W. Bush’s running mate for the November Presidential elections. Such talk has increased in GOP circles lately with former New York Senator Alfonse D'Amato Wednesday calling on Bush to dump Cheney."

He faces indictment from a French court on charges of bribery, money laundering and misuse of corporate funds while CEO of Halliburton and is also under investigation by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission for his role in administering a $180 million slush fund that Halliburton used to pay bribes.

In addition, an analysis by the White House Counsel's Office concludes Cheney violated federal rules on conflict of interest by helping push through a $7 billion no-bid contract for Halliburton's work in Iraq."

Pentagon Admits Bush's Military Records "inadvertently destroyed

"Military payroll records documenting President Bush's whereabouts (or lack thereof) during his service in the Texas Air National Guard were "inadvertently destroyed," the Pentagon now admits.
In a letter responding to a federal lawsuit by The Associated Press, the Defense Department said that microfilm containing the pertinent National Guard payroll records was damaged and could not be salvaged. The damaged material included payroll records for the first quarter of 1969 and the third quarter of 1972.

"President Bush's payroll records for those two quarters were among the records destroyed," wrote C.Y. Talbott, of the Pentagon's Freedom of Information and Security Review section. "Searches for back-up paper copies of the missing records were unsuccessful." "

The "New Freedom" Initiative

With reference to the previous news, remember an earlier post about the "New Freedom" initiative to test all people for mental illness (whatever that is right now) and initiate mandatory medication for them. They already said they would start with school children. This represents an attempt to say that large portions of children have "mental problems" and need medication. I personally think this is one of the most troubling pieces of news I have read since I saw that the Supreme Court had "selected" the president, and that the majority of the popular vote was won by Gore.

Scary , brave new world, 1984 plus 20...they will say it's "double plus good", but it's really just a bit of the old "ultraviolence" my droogies.

 

Mentally ill US children held in detention centres

"Wed 7 July, 2004 22:40

By Joanne Kenen

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Thousands of mentally ill American children, some as young as seven, are locked up in juvenile detention centres because there is nowhere else for them to go, a congressional report has found.

The report on Wednesday painted a disturbing picture of children with mental illness and/or substance abuse warehoused in jail-like conditions where their mental health often deteriorates.

More than 160 of the 524 centres surveyed reported suicide attempts by youths held unnecessarily.

"The last place some of these kids need to be is in detention," the study quoted a Tennessee juvenile centre administrator as saying. "Those with depression are locked up alone to contemplate suicide. I guess you get the picture."

The House-Senate bipartisan report was initiated by Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins and California Democrat Representative Henry Waxman. It was the subject of a hearing on Wednesday by the Senate Committee on Government Affairs, which Collins chairs.

Many families struggle to afford mental health care. Health insurers often provide little or no mental health coverage, or pay so little doctors don't want to take part in the health plans. Community clinics are stretched and cannot meet demand.

The study found that 33 states hold youths who have no charges against them of any kind in juvenile detention centres. On any given day, about 2,000 such young people are incarcerated, and over six months, the number is 15,000.

"Too often (children) are simply left to languish in juvenile detention centres which are ill-equipped to meet their needs while they wait for scarce mental health services," Collins added."

USA PATRIOT Act Survives Amendment Attempt

""A bill to modify the USA PATRIOT Act that would have blocked part of the legislation's provisions that allow for the investigation of people's reading habits was defeated by a 210-210 vote in the U.S House of Representives. The House leaders kept the roll call open for 23 minutes past the 15 minute deadline to persuade 10 Representatives to change votes. According to the article 'Rep. Zach Wamp, R-Tenn., said he switched his initial "yes" vote to "no" after being shown Justice Department documents asserting that terrorists have communicated over the Internet via public library computers.' On the other hand, 'Critics of the Patriot Act argued that even without it, investigators can get book store and other records simply by obtaining subpoenas or search warrants.'"

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- State Education Secretary Richard Riordan jokingly told a child her name, Isis, meant "stupid dirty girl," prompting the head of the California NAACP on Thursday to call for his resignation.

Riordan, the wealthy former Los Angeles mayor known for his support of public schools, startled even friends last week with the comments at a promotional event for summer reading at the Santa Barbara library.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, his longtime friend, called Riordan's statement to the girl "unacceptable in any context" but gave no hint his job was in danger.

But Alice Huffman, president of the California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said Thursday that Riordan "is not suitable to lead education in our state" and should be removed.

The conversation, videotaped by KEYT-TV, took place July 1. The girl, 6-year-old Isis D'Luciano, asked Riordan if he knew her name meant "Egyptian goddess."

Riordan replied, "It means stupid dirty girl."

After nervous laughter in the room, the girl again told Riordan the meaning of her name.

"Hey, that's nifty," he said.

A day later, Riordan issued a statement that said he "teased" the girl. "I immediately apologized to her, and I want to do so again for the misunderstanding," Riordan said.

The governor's chief spokesman, Rob Stutzman, said Thursday Riordan had not been asked to resign and, "That's the end of the issue, as far as we are concerned."

Terror and Fearmongering

The use of "terror" is a tactic which predates recorded history. Terror is at once, a feeling, and a military tactic. Use of terror, or terrorist tactics (from a political or guerilla standpoint), means that the person or group, intentionally performs acts which have, as their effect, the instilling of fear , anxiety, and unease, as well as apprehension.

This may accomplished by the execution of violence or violent acts, performed at unexpected times, at unexpected locations. Sometimes, terrorist acts may be sabotage (a term which interestingly comes from Holland, when workers at mills would throw their shoes, "Sabot" , into machinery to prevent it from working), or direct attacks on people or locations.

But, a better definition of terror or terrorism, is the intentional installation or infliction of fear, unease, apprehension, dread,panic, and / or nervousness in a group of people.

Not too long ago, our "government" announced that we , as the public, could expect a series of ill defined threats to be announced in the coming months. Translated to everyday speech, they are saying...

"We are going to periodically, at undetermined times, going to tell you something bad is going to happen, but we don't know what, where, how, or when."

1) Now, certainly, announcing this to the public is an intentional act.

2) Those who release these notices of "ill defined threats" know that the main effect will be to create fear, dread, unease, etc.

3) Is this politically motivated? I suggest that it is. It is also clear that the occasional rise and fall of the "alert level" colors, seem to be done on spurious evidence at best. As it has said, it is clear that, for at least the next four months, the "alert level" will never go back to "green".

4) And this is the most important question, are these "series of ill defined threats" MEANT to elicit fear, dread, unease, etc. ? I suggest they are, and here is why I say that. For argument's sake, let's say they have a real, and functional purpose. What would that purpose be?

Citizens are told that when the "threat level" rises, they should just be more vigilant. If you are shopping in a grocery store and hear on the television playing there that the threat level is elevated one color level before it was seconds before, what are you supposed to actually do?

Are you supposed to furtively look down the aisles or to start looking suspiciously at the little old lady next to you inspecting the spinach in produce? If you tell someone that there is a POTENTIAL danger to them, ill defined, and they have no specific things they are to do that could possibly help protect them or lower their exposure...they can ONLY DO ONE THING...start being afraid, start feeling uneasy...

Now, let's say for an instant, that I, as a citizen, started doing to a few citizens , what the government is doing to us ALL. Let's say I periodically called people unexpectedly and told them something bad might happen to them any day, any time, and for them to "get ready for it".
Legally, this would constitute, at the very least, a terrorist threat, if not outright terrorism under the "Patriot Act". I could, when caught, say I really had some reason to believe that something bad might happen to them, and was just trying to warn them....think that would fly as a defense?
Me neither.

The point IS, this is what the government is doing to us. Nothing has really happened here since 9/11 of 2001...that's three years of a threat level being announced, which has never gone back to green, and WHY? Undefined threats? Gimme a break. Life itself is fraught with dangers...real dangers. Car wrecks, burglary, robbery, murders, cancer....we live our lives like a soldier running an obstacle course, not knowing where the next booby trap might arise. Give that smoking could cause cancer, alcohol abuse can cause cirrhosis, driving a car can get ya killed, making a fellow co-worker at work can cause them to come back after you with a firearm...these are REAL threats. People are killed every day as a result of these.

From a physiological standpoint, inducing these threat responses, these fear responses, these stresses, increases the release of the stress related hormone, cortisol. Long term, cortisol has the effect of weakening muscle tissue, decreasing the immune response, and making the body more vulnerable to various diseases including cancer.

So, given the above, shouldn't the government, under its "Nanny function", call us all personally every day and warn us not to run with forks, drive without seatbelts fastened, mix alcohol and prescription medicine, on and on ad nauseum?

Statistically, you are more likely to be struck by lightning than killed by Al Qaida. So, shouldn't we have a "lightning threat level" and particularly warn golfers.

The point is clear. The threat level nonsense and these constant warnings of ill defined threats, create terror, fear, and apprehension.

I'm over five decades old...and the last time I can remember living in this announced state of fear, was back in the Kennedy era when we lived through a weekend not knowing whether the Soviets would unleash a firestorm of nuclear weapons on us. But, that was just ONE weekend. This government is trying to intentionally create this level of anxiety in us day after day for four years!

It's time the fearmongering as a political tool is gone!

Anybody but Bush in 2004!
