Voting Official Seeks Terrorism Guidelines

The government needs to establish guidelines for canceling or rescheduling elections if terrorists strike the United States again, says the chairman of a new federal voting commission.

Such guidelines do not currently exist, said DeForest B. Soaries, head of the voting panel.

Soaries was appointed to the federal Election Assistance Commission last year by President Bush. Soaries said he wrote to National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge in April to raise the concerns.

"I am still awaiting their response," he said. "Thus far we have not begun any meaningful discussion." Spokesmen for Rice and Ridge did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Soaries noted that Sept. 11, 2001, fell on Election Day in New York City - and he said officials there had no rules to follow in making the decision to cancel the election and hold it later.

Events in Spain, where a terrorist attack shortly before the March election possibly influenced its outcome, show the need for a process to deal with terrorists threatening or interrupting the Nov. 2 presidential election in America, he said.

"Look at the possibilities. If the federal government were to cancel an election or suspend an election, it has tremendous political implications. If the federal government chose not to suspend an election it has political implications," said Soaries, a Republican and former secretary of state of New Jersey.


"Who makes the call, under what circumstances is the call made, what are the constitutional implications?" he said. "I think we have to err on the side of transparency to protect the voting rights of the country." [more]

The Power of the People, by Howard Zinn

If you ever get depressed, if you ever start to feel hopeless, just remember: The United States is just 4 percent of the world's population. I know we have all those guns and nuclear weapons and all those cell phones. But the truth is that the power of the people when it is organized overcomes whatever concentrations of money and military might there are.

We have seen this in history again and again, where governments that seemed all powerful, untouchable, that seemed to have total control of the country, suddenly you wake up one morning and the head of the government is on a plane fleeing the country, fleeing the Philippines with shoes. I admit it, every once in a while I have this fantasy. . . . I'm willing to chip in for the airfare.

There are wonderful signs of resistance all over the world, resistance to authority, resistance to governments, resistance to war. It makes me feel good when I pick up the paper and I see that seventeen Israeli pilots are refusing to fly missions any more.

You forget what power people have. Did you see that picture of that woman from Nigeria who was going to be stoned to death because of a sexual escapade? There was a worldwide protest against that, and the Nigerian government had to back down. People forget how powerful protest is, and how actually vulnerable these presumably powerful entities really are when people get together. We've seen this happen again and again in places where the all-powerful government wakes up in the morning and there are a million people in the streets, and that's it. [more]

Moore Gives It To CBS

An exerpt:
Storm: "So this is satire and not documentary? We shouldnít see this as..."
††††
Moore: "Itís a satirical documentary."

†††† Storm: "Some have said propaganda, do you buy that? Op-ed?"

†††† Moore: "No, I consider the CBS Evening News propaganda. What I do is..."

†††† Storm: "Weíll move beyond on that."

†††† Moore: "Why? Letís not move beyond that. Seriously."

†††† Storm: "No, letís talk about your movie."

†††† Moore: "But why donít we talk about the Evening News on this network and the other networks that didnít do the job they should have done at the beginning of this war?"

†††† Storm: "You know what?"

†††† Moore: "Demanded the evidence, ask the hard questions-"

†††† Storm: "Okay."

†††† Moore: "-we may not of even gone into this war had these networks done their job. I mean, it was a great disservice to the American people because we depend on people who work here and †††††† the other networks to go after those in power and say 'Hey, wait a minute. You want to send our kids off to war, we want to know where those weapons of mass destruction are. Letís see ††† the proof. Letís see the proof that Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11.í"
††††
Storm: "But-"
††
†† Moore: "There was no proof and everybody just got embedded and everybody rolled over and everybody knows that now."

†††† Storm: "Michael, the one thing that journalists try to do is to present both sides of the story. †† And it could be argued that you did not do that in this movie."

†††† Moore: "I certainly didnít. I presented my side..."

†††† Storm: "You presented your side of the story."

†††† Moore: "Because my side, thatís the side of millions of Americans, (the majority) rarely gets told. This is just a humble plea on my behalf and not to you personally, Hannah. But Iím just saying to journalists in general that instead of † working so hard to tell both sides of the story, why donít you just tell that one side, which is the administration, †††† why donít you ask them the hard questions-"

†††† Storm: "Which I think is something that we all try to do."

†††† Moore: "Well, I think it was a lot of cheerleading going on at the beginning of this war-"

†††† Storm: "Alright."

†††† Moore: "A lot of cheerleading and it didnít do the public any good to have journalists standing in front †† of the camera going 'whoop-dee-do, letís all go to warí. And, and itís not their kids going to war. ††††† Itís not the children of the news executives going to war-"

†††† Storm: "Michael, why donít you do you next movie about networks news, okay? Because this movie..."

†††† Moore: "I know, I think I should do that movie."

†††† Storm: "...because this movie is an attack on the president and his policies."

†††† Moore: "Well, and it also points out how the networks failed us at the beginning of this war and didnít do their job."

Philip Shropshire Interviews RU Sirius

. . . I can't believe I haven't linked this before--Philip and RU are two of my favorite brains. Make sure to check out Philip's 3 River Tech Review--his major personal hub on the net from which he routinely jets out to leave his idiosyncratic compassionate-cerebral graff on a wide array of nearby orbitals, including Better Humans, Changesurfer Radio, Warblogger Watch and our very own AmSam.org, among many more.

. . . was he really heard on Air America Radio? Cool!

Garofalo Sounds Off

. . . of course, it goes without saying that there are millions, if not tens, hundreds of millions of progressive men out there who look upon Janeane as THE perfect woman . . .

Me included, of course.

See also: Majority Report Radio, where Janeane splits open the radio waves weekdaily with her radical beauty, intelligence and wit. Ooh la la, one listen to her and instant mind-percolation. Forward male minds immediately know the future of the race when they see her; the little white guys start swimming frenetically, if only in circles. Goddess, she is. Yet down to earth, too. Plus fiery--don't forget fiery . . .

Janeane is my Eve, baby. Propagate wisely.

"Bush Should Have Died, Not Reagan"
--Morrissey

You know, Reagan's policies were cruel and unusual punishment to tens of thousands, to be sure, but when comparing him to GW on a personal level, this cover says it all.

KILLER, COWARD, CON-MAN
GOOD RIDDANCE, GIPPER . . . MORE PROOF ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG, by Greg Palast


Ronald Reagan was a conman. Reagan was a coward. Reagan was a killer.

In 1987, I found myself stuck in a crappy little town in Nicaragua named Chaguitillo. The people were kind enough, though hungry, except for one surly young man. His wife had just died of tuberculosis.

People don't die of TB if they get some antibiotics. But Ronald Reagan, big hearted guy that he was, had put a lock-down embargo on medicine to Nicaragua because he didn't like the government that the people there had elected.

Ronnie grinned and cracked jokes while the young woman's lungs filled up and she stopped breathing. Reagan flashed that B-movie grin while they buried the mother of three. [more]


See also: Planet Reagan, by William Rivers Pitt and 66 (Unflattering) Things About Ronald Reagan by the editor of the Nation, David Corn.

Of course, Reagan had many good qualities--i.e., he loved to read (unlike Bush the Minor). But he was also responsible for tens of thousands of deaths. He created homelessness. Etc. I never applaud anybody's death, but it is important to be reminded of the actual policies and actions of a man when he dies and not just the loss of his charming smile, eh?
