STOP THE NUCLEAR BUNKER BUSTER

URGENT ACTION ALERT

The Feinstein-Kennedy amendment is being debated on the Senate floor now. The earliest they may vote is next Monday evening, probably Tuesday. Please forward the alert below and call your Senate offices. PLEASE NOTE that this is a straight funding cut, rather than a reallocation of funds to other weapons systems, unlike the recent House version, which lost. The full text of the amendment appears at the end of this message.

Jackie Cabasso

URGENT ACTION ALERT

* Support the Feinstein-Kennedy amendment to stop funding for nuclear bunker busters and other advanced nuclear weapons
o Call your Senators and Representatives at 202-224-3121 (Congressional switchboard)
o Write your Senators using email at

//www.webslingerz.com/jhoffman/congress-email.html

Timing: Act Now! The Senate will vote on amendments to the defense authorization bill (S. 2400) as early as Monday evening, June 7th.

Background: The Senate will vote on key nuclear weapons programs when it takes up the amendment by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Edward Kennedy (D-MA) to cut $27.5 million in funding for research into a new nuclear bunker buster and $9 million for other advanced nuclear weapons concepts. Senators should oppose funding for the "Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator" to modify two existing types of nuclear weapons with explosive powers fifty times that of the bomb used over Hiroshima for destroying deep underground bunkers. Even these large nuclear weapons would be ineffective to the depths that modern bunkers can be built and the collateral damage from such an explosion would kill millions if the bunker was located beneath a major city. The "Advanced Concepts Initiative" gives U.S. nuclear weapons labs money to design new mini-nuclear weapons and other new concepts. Even the smallest yield nuclear earth penetrator would create heavy collateral damage. Their small size could lead the President to more readily consider their use in future conflicts. Their research, development and potential use encourages other nations to consider them a desirable weapon to own.

The President has requested the highest budget for nuclear weapons activities since the all-time record set under President Reagan during the Cold War. At a time of war and record deficits, Congress needs your support to cut the nuclear weapons budget and curb the pursuit of new nuclear weapons programs. These programs send a clear "do as I say, not as I do" message to the rest of the world and threaten to undermine the nation's attempts to stem the world's appetite for weapons of mass destruction.

Suggested message to Senators: Please support the Feinstein-Kennedy amendment to cut funding for nuclear bunker busters and other advanced nuclear weapons.

FULL TEXT OF AMENDMENT:

SEC. 3122. PROHIBITION ON USE OF FUNDS FOR NEW NUCLEAR WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT UNDER STOCKPILE SERVICES ADVANCED CONCEPTS INITIATIVE OR FOR ROBUST NUCLEAR EARTH PENETRATOR.

None of the funds authorized to be appropriated by section 3101(a)(1) for the National Nuclear Security Administration for weapons activities may be obligated or expended for the following:
(1) The Stockpile Services Advanced Concepts Initiative for the support of new nuclear weapons development.
(2) The Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator (RNEP).

AUTISM IS TREATABLE

Hi! Just thought I'd intro myself. I'm Tami -- have relative with 3 autistic boys. And I've been researching and reading about Autism. I found this information and websites interesting!

T


DID YOU KNOW, three years after the state of California banned Mercury from ALL Children's Vaccines, CALIFORNIA HAS ALREADY SEEN A DECLINE IN THEIR RATE OF AUTISM?

DID YOU KNOW AUTISM AND MERCURY POISONING HAVE IDENTICAL SYMPTOMS and that some alternative health doctors have success curing Autism using Chelation and Nutritional Therapies?

DID YOU KNOW the entire world's having an AUTISM EPIDEMIC with Autism in America's school-age children rising from 1 in 10,000 10 years ago to 1 in 150 today. Many of our infant and children's vaccines contain high levels of mercury - with child vaccinations sometimes exceeding EPA Mercury standards by over 200% in one day?

DID YOU KNOW ONE or ALL of the following DANGEROUS INGREDIENTS usually can be found in your child's vaccines?

- aluminum phosphate (an aluminum salt which is corrosive to tissues)
- mercury (a neurotoxin)
- thimerasol (contains approximately 50% mercury)
- formaldehyde (a carcinogen)
- phenoxyethanol (anti-freeze)
- many other dangerous ingredients

DID YOU KNOW the medical field usually DOES NOT DISCLOSE to parents that with MANY VACCINES MERCURY & OTHER POISONS ARE BEING INJECTED DIRECTLY INTO THE BLOODSTREAM of their infants and young children or that slightly more expensive mercury-free vaccines have been available for years.

DID YOU KNOW INFANTS HAVE NO LIVER BILE production for mercury elimination or BLOOD/BRAIN BARRIER for brain protection until 6 months while DAY 1the mercury-filled Hepatitis B vaccine is routinely given to ALL infants, far exceeding EPA-approved levels -- sometimes over 200% in 1 day?

DID YOU KNOW there has been NO SAFETY STUDY CONDUCTED ON ANY VACCINE to test its carcinogenic potential while vaccines contain known carcinogens & cancer rates are rising in children at alarming rates?

DID YOU KNOW OTHER CHILDHOOD ILLNESSES such as Asthma, ADHD, Allergies, Cancer, Crohn's disease, Diabetes, and etc. ARE TRIPLING & QUADRUPLING in vaccinated children while levels are often remaining low or unchanged in unvaccinated children?

DID YOU KNOW VALID RESEARCH by respected physicians and scientists documents that routine vaccinations may contribute to these rising illnesses by putting chemicals/toxins directly into your child's bloodstream while suppressing his/her immune system?

Bush's Erratic Behavior Worries White House Aides

From Capitol Hill Blue

By DOUG THOMPSON
Publisher, Capitol Hill Blue
Jun 4, 2004, 06:15

President George W. Bush’s increasingly erratic behavior and wide mood swings has the halls of the West Wing buzzing lately as aides privately express growing concern over their leader’s state of mind.

In meetings with top aides and administration officials, the President goes from quoting the Bible in one breath to obscene tantrums against the media, Democrats and others that he classifies as “enemies of the state.”

Worried White House aides paint a portrait of a man on the edge, increasingly wary of those who disagree with him and paranoid of a public that no longer trusts his policies in Iraq or at home.

“It reminds me of the Nixon days,” says a longtime GOP political consultant with contacts in the White House. “Everybody is an enemy; everybody is out to get him. That’s the mood over there.”

In interviews with a number of White House staffers who were willing to talk off the record, a picture of an administration under siege has emerged, led by a man who declares his decisions to be “God’s will” and then tells aides to “fuck over” anyone they consider to be an opponent of the administration.

“We’re at war, there’s no doubt about it. What I don’t know anymore is just who the enemy might be,” says one troubled White House aide. “We seem to spend more time trying to destroy John Kerry than al Qaeda and our enemies list just keeps growing and growing.”

Aides say the President gets “hung up on minor details,” micromanaging to the extreme while ignoring the bigger picture. He will spend hours personally reviewing and approving every attack ad against his Democratic opponent and then kiss off a meeting on economic issues.

“This is what is killing us on Iraq,” one aide says. “We lost focus. The President got hung up on the weapons of mass destruction and an unproven link to al Qaeda. We could have found other justifiable reasons for the war but the President insisted the focus stay on those two, tenuous items.”

Aides who raise questions quickly find themselves shut out of access to the President or other top advisors. Among top officials, Bush’s inner circle is shrinking. Secretary of State Colin Powell has fallen out of favor because of his growing doubts about the administration’s war against Iraq.

The President's abrupt dismissal of CIA Directory George Tenet Wednesday night is, aides say, an example of how he works.

"Tenet wanted to quit last year but the President got his back up and wouldn't hear of it," says an aide. "That would have been the opportune time to make a change, not in the middle of an election campaign but when the director challenged the President during the meeting Wednesday, the President cut him off by saying 'that's it George. I cannot abide disloyalty. I want your resignation and I want it now."

Tenet was allowed to resign "voluntarily" and Bush informed his shocked staff of the decision Thursday morning. One aide says the President actually described the decision as "God's will."

God may also be the reason Attorney General John Ashcroft, the administration’s lightning rod because of his questionable actions that critics argue threatens freedoms granted by the Constitution, remains part of the power elite. West Wing staffers call Bush and Ashcroft “the Blues Brothers” because “they’re on a mission from God.”

“The Attorney General is tight with the President because of religion,” says one aide. “They both believe any action is justifiable in the name of God.”

But the President who says he rules at the behest of God can also tongue-lash those he perceives as disloyal, calling them “fucking assholes” in front of other staff, berating one cabinet official in front of others and labeling anyone who disagrees with him “unpatriotic” or “anti-American.”

“The mood here is that we’re under siege, there’s no doubt about it,” says one troubled aide who admits he is looking for work elsewhere. “In this administration, you don’t have to wear a turban or speak Farsi to be an enemy of the United States. All you have to do is disagree with the President.”

The White House did not respond to requests for comment on the record.

U.N. warns on state of world's oceans

04 Jun 2004 12:09:42 GMT

BARCELONA, Spain, June 4 (Reuters) - Over-fishing, pollution and global warming are threatening the world's oceans, the United Nations said in a report to mark World Environment Day on Saturday.

"Wanted! Seas and Oceans: Dead or Alive?" is the slogan for the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP) on the annual day, helping review the state of the planet.

Following are some UNEP facts about the seas:

-- Oceans cover 70 percent of the world's surface and more than 90 percent of the world's living biomass -- from seaweed to blue whales -- is found in the oceans.

-- More than 3.5 billion people, more than half the world's six billion population, depend on the seas for their primary source of food. The numbers could double to 7.0 billion in 20 years.

-- More than 70 percent of the world's marine fisheries are fished up to or beyond their sustainable limit. Stocks of fish such as tuna, cod, swordfish and marlin have declined by up to 90 percent in the past century.

-- Governments at a 2002 Earth Summit in Johannesburg agreed "on an urgent basis and where possible by 2015, to maintain or restore depleted fish stocks."

-- The summit also called for elimination of government subsidies. Estimated at $15-$20 billion a year, subsidies account for almost 20 percent of revenues to the fishing industry worldwide and can promote excess fishing.

-- Eighty percent of all pollution in the seas comes from land-based activities. By 2010, 80 percent of the world's population will live within 100 km (62.14 miles) of coastlines.

-- Death and diseases caused by polluted coastal waters cost the global economy $12.8 billion every year.

-- Plastic waste, like supermarket bags, kills up to one million seabirds, 100,000 sea mammals and countless fish yearly.

-- An estimated 21 million barrels of oil run into the oceans every year from sources ranging from run-off from streets to ships flushing their tanks.

-- In the past decade, an average of 600,000 barrels of oil a year have been accidentally spilled from ships -- the equivalent of 12 disasters the size of the sinking of the Prestige tanker off Spain in 2002.

-- Sea levels have risen by 10-25 cm in the past 100 years and global warming is threatening further rises. Higher sea levels could destroy corals and swamp some low-lying nations in the Pacific.

-- Tropical coral reefs are found off 109 nations -- significant damage has occurred to reefs off 93 of them, from factors including coastal development and tourism.

-- Coral reefs comprise less than 0.5 percent of the ocean floor but more than 90 percent of marine species are directly or indirectly linked to them. The 2,000 km (1,200 mile) long Great Barrier Reef off Australia is the largest living structure on the planet, visible from the Moon.

Converge on Moscow for the premiere of "World Without Waves"

Klaus,

You and Imelda have been wonderful to help. Somehow we must get some interested parties to converge on Moscow for the premiere of "World Without Waves". The show of support for the film in Moscow will help immensely to begin to move against the inertia of cultural animosity/indifference to our problem of addiction to electricity and wireless technology as well as the fallout of EMF/EMR sensitive humans and their nearly insurmountable problems.

I am not sure how we can go about getting one person in Europe to just say they are going, and someone else decide to meet them there. This is a start. I realize we are asking a lot from people, but there is an international debate at stake. If this film makes "waves", we will keep on pushing to the next venue where we will make even more news and again, with greater global news coverage. Moscow is just so important since it is the first official public screening - the film's birth.

If there are any activists or sympathizers who are willing to host visitors in their homes in Moscow, we need to hear from them. This type of commitment and co-operation may be necessary at first to get this effort moving toward creating an international stir. We have a publicist connected to this effort who will be able to work with the press in this regard.

Strength and best wishes to you and yours,

David

Klaus,

Here is a link to the information about screening time and place in Moscow from the Moscow Film Festival site:

Now Investigate The Big Story

By Ian Gurney

6-3-4

An open letter to America's editors and journalists.

The contrite manner in which the New York Times and the Washington Post admitted to being "conned by the neocons in the Pentagon" does not excuse what was, in plain language, a massive and inexcusable lapse of editorial and jounalistic integrity. In short, the mainstream media in the US lied to the American people from September 11th. onwards.

There was no connection between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. No connection between Saddam and September 11th. There were no Weapons of Mass Destruction. There were no nuclear weapons programmes, no uranium yellow cake from Niger. There was no threat to the United States from Iraq, no possibility of Saddam launching WMD's within 45 minutes.

Yet journalists, many of them supposed "top class investigative journalists" were totally unable to sort the truth from the falsehoods put out by Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, Wolfowitz, Luti, Feith, Abrams, their good friend Chalabi and the other neo-conservatives in the White House, Pentagon and the Office of Special Plans. Why was this? Fear of not towing the "patriotic" line? Fear of being called "anti-American"? Fear of losing your job? Fear of losing influence and access in the corridors of power and the offices of the establishment?

Excuse me! I thought the job of a good journalist in a democracy was to challenge the establishment, question their motives, report their misdeeds and uncover their lies and sophistry. Only Seymour Hersh got things right, and for his pains Richard Perle called him "The closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist". That's something Sy Hersh should be extremely proud of. Journalism is not meant to walk hand in hand with the establishment, with politicians or with those who wield power. It is the job of the journalist to report the truth. To find out what is really going on. Nothing else will do. If you lie to the public then they will not believe you next time. Remember the little boy who cried wolf?

How best, then, for the US mainstream media to once again become respected and more importantly, believed, by the American public. Well, how's this for an idea. Why not investigate the biggest newspaper story of all time. Make your name as the journalist who uncovered the greatest crime ever committed in America. Win the Pullitzer prize. Become more famous than Woodward and Bernstein. Scoop the entire world with the most important story of all time. How? Simply investigate which companies and which individuals profited by placing "PUT" options on US airlines in the days before September 11th. There must be a paper trail that shows who made those "put" options and by checking the people involved with those companies and who their major investors are, it should be possible to find out once and for all who REALLY knew beforehand about September 11th. Perhaps an investigation into the Carlyle Group, with whom the bin Laden family invested heavily would be a good place to start, followed by The Freemont Group, owned by the Bechtel family, who also have the bin Ladens as investors. Both companies also have very close connections to the Bush family. Maybe Richard Perle's investement vehicle, Trireme Partners is also worth a look?

A parrallel line of enquiry should also investigate who told San Francisco's Mayor Brown not to fly on the 10th. or 11th. of September. Did that information come from the White House, perhaps from Condoleezza Rice as some allege?

By thoroughly investigating these matters it should be possible to finally uncover who it was that REALLY planned and excecuted the greatest criminal event in America's history. Now surely, isn't that a story worth investigating?

Insanity In America

Its 2004....

So, here we all are,
now in 2004
Not a drop of sensibility,
or anything more
The dictators and all
have all gathered round,
seeking a police state,
instead of something sound
More protesters are banned
all across our once great land,
Forbidden to expose
any traitor's hand
Our freedoms denied
by those we put in power,
Their cloud of hate grows blacker
with each passing hour
Who will stand up
as our freedoms are taken away,
does anyone love America
to stand up and say
Give our freedoms back !
they mean so much to all,
You had no right to take them
in the first place at all
The third Reich is dead !
That's what we've been told,
Yet all of our leadership
strives to create a new fold
Next spring a new draft will rise
from sea to shining sea,
to fight taxpayer funded terror
brought upon you and me
You walk out to the curb
to retreive your bills and mail,
And see your neighbor oblivious
to the new world order's flail.

Not Looking Good for Bush

It's very important to note that the criminal charges faced by senior Pentagon and White House officials are not trivial charges. They're far beyond breaking into the opposition's political headquarters. The charges go beyond simple traditional political malfeasance. The high crimes committed in the Pentagon and White House that are being investigated by the Department of Justice are, legitimately, high crimes. They go to the heart of American military and intelligence capability. They were, in essence, acts of espionage, acts of treason...

Under the banner of the "war" on terror

by William Greider

The Nation

06/03/04

"When President Bush called Americans to enlist in his 'war on terror,' very few citizens could have grasped the all-encompassing consequences of the proposition. The terrifying events of 9/11 were like a blinding flash, benumbing the country with a sudden knowledge of unimagined dangers. Strong action was recommended, skeptics were silenced and a shallow sense of unity emerged from the shared vulnerabilities. Nearly three years later, the enormity of Bush's summons to open-ended 'war' is more obvious. It overwhelmed the country, in fact deranged society's normal processes and purposes with a brilliantly seductive political message: Terror pre-empts everything else."...

Unidentified flying object baffles authorities

05/06/2004

Several specialists, including the Portuguese air force, were left without any feasible explanation when an unidentified flying object (UFO) was caught on radar travelling through Portuguese airspace. The only confirmation received to date is that “it was not a plane” and that it disappeared three minutes after being captured on radar.

Spokesman for the Portuguese Air force, Colonel Carlos Barbosa revealed to the Lusa News Agency that defence radars recorded “a target” for a period of time ranging between 120 and 180 seconds. He adds “it cannot be classified as an aircraft”.

The phenomenon, described by eye-witnesses as being a “large and intense white light, dispersing smoke but noiseless as it moved through the night sky” was also detected by air traffic controllers in Beja and Montijo, while emergency rescue staff at Lisbon’s international airport also confirmed the sighting.

Specialists in space science contacted by the Lusa News Agency have ruled out the possibility the sighting was an astronomic phenomenon, arguing, “They last less and tend to make a noise”.

The US defence department as also meanwhile confirmed the object was not a falling satellite or fragments thereof as no objects in orbit had recently been lost.

The National Weather Bureau has also since issued a statement saying it has no meteorological explanation for the sighting.

Between Tuesday and Wednesday, law enforcement authorities received 20 calls from civilians claiming to have seen the “UFO”. The calls were made from several parts of the country.

The European Space Agency has also found no explanation for the sighting, saying Portugal was the only country in which this “moving ball of intense light” was seen.

Oppose the Bush Administration’s practice of indefinite detention

The Bush Administration’s classification of prisoners as “enemy combatants” and its holding them without charge violates international law and the U.S. Constitution. If the government has evidence that individuals are involved with terrorism, there are other, better, legal options than detaining them without charge.

Right now, the Supreme Court is considering whether indefinite detention without charge violates federal law, in part because Congress has not approved such detentions. The Court’s ruling on this practice is expected soon. We expect the Bush Administration to seek Congress’s endorsement if the case goes against them.

Now is the time to tell your Members of Congress that you oppose the Bush Administration’s practice of indefinite detention and you do not want Congress to endorse it. Our united voices have the power to make change.

Patriot Act misinformation

The White House is waging a misinformation war about the Patriot Act while support grows among conservatives, libertarians and liberals to fix about a dozen controversial provisions in the law.

The ACLU is calling upon members of Congress and all Americans to stand united against the extension of the USA Patriot, as the President and others in his Administration travel the country urging Americans to support the Act’s renewal.

The President’s renewal request, which came in new campaign advertising that began airing in 19 states last week, is misleading and ignores strong bi-partisan support for fixes to the law. The new Bush ads echo misstatements made in Mr. Bush’s earlier stump speeches on the Patriot Act in Buffalo and Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Vice President Cheney has gotten in on the act. In comments made to an audience in Kansas City, Missouri, this week, the Vice President claimed that no abuses under the Patriot Act have been reported or confirmed.

"Legitimate questions about the Patriot Act should not be exploited for partisan politics," said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. "Unfortunately the president is using his re-election campaign to mislead the American people about the Patriot Act and its ramifications."
