Student Tasered for Asking Wrong Question : Another Day in the Empire

Student Tasered for Asking Wrong Question : Another Day in the Empire: "As the video below demonstrates, we now live in a fascist dictatorship, and if you ask the wrong question at a forum or public event, you will be tasered by the police, who are basically thugs, no different than Hitler’s brown shirts. In the video, a student is molested and violently assaulted by the police for asking John Kerry if he was a member of Skull and Bones. It is interesting to note a couple things in this video: 1) the police, or campus security, are several feet away from the microphone, posed to attack anybody who dares ask an inappropriate question, 2) notice the almost complete lack of response on the part of the audience when the student making the mistake of asking the wrong question is attacked, and 3) Kerry, as well, does not seem to be bothered by the tasering, as it is now quite normal to be assaulted for exercising your First Amendment right in public, never mind more than 200 people hav…

Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Wednesday, 19 September 2007 :: from www.uruknet.info :: news from occupied Iraq - it

Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Wednesday, 19 September 2007 :: from www.uruknet.info :: news from occupied Iraq - it: "Iraqi puppet regime backs away from reports it was rescinding license of mercenary security company 'Blackwater' following Sunday massacre of civilians in west Baghdad. In a dispatch posted at 12:52pm Baghdad time midday Wednesday, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that the US-installed regime of 'Prime Minister' Nuri al-Maliki backed away from its earlier announcement that it had withdrawn the license of the American mercenary security contractor 'Blackwater' to operate in Iraq following Sunday’s massacre of Iraqi civilians in western Baghdad."

GOP Rep. : There Are 'Too Many Mosques In This Country'

GOP Rep. : There Are 'Too Many Mosques In This Country' Earlier, King had said in an interview with radio and television host Sean Hannity that 85 percent of the mosques in this country are controlled by “extremist leadership,” a comment that prompted strong condemnations from many religious organizations and from the Democratic National Committee.

At What Price, Safety?

At What Price, Safety?: "One of the more morally reprehensible notes from the supporters of death I receive is the one that goes something like this: “I am for peace, too, but not at the expense of my family.” These people are saying that it is okay to ruin my family and thousands of other families in the US who have been torn apart like the bodies of our loved ones to keep other families “safe.” I have news for these people, as bad as the sacrifices have been for some families in America, the people of Iraq have suffered far more for the deceptions and greed of BushCo. Think about this: America killed over a million Iraqis between Gulf I and this current occupation, and that did not keep my family safe, or the families of the people killed in 9-11. How can one sleep at night thinking that her family is safe when so many people are devastated by the policies that she thinks is keeping her family safe? Never mind the National Intelligence Estimates that have rightly showed that ou…

Checkbook Imperialism

Checkbook Imperialism: "Were there even the faintest trace of Iraqi independence rising from the ashes of this failed American imperialist venture, Blackwater would have to fold its tents and go, if only in the interest of keeping up appearances. After all, the Iraqi Interior Ministry claimed that the Blackwater thugs guarding a U.S. State Department convoy through the streets of Baghdad fired 'randomly at citizens' in a crowded square on Sunday, killing 11 people and wounding 13 others. So the Iraqi government has ordered Blackwater to leave the country after what a government spokesman called a 'flagrant assault ... on Iraqi citizens.' But who told those Iraqi officials that they have the power to control anything regarding the 182,000 privately contracted personnel working for the U.S. in Iraq? Don't they know about Order 17, which former American proconsul Paul Bremer put in place to grant contractors, including his own Blackwater bodyguards, immunity fro…
