Iraq War Increased Terrorist Threat to the UK, Former MI5 Chief

By Gordon Rayner, Chief Reporter

She told the inquiry: "Our involvement in Iraq radicalised, for want of a better word, a whole generation of young people - not a whole generation, a few among a generation - who saw our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as being an attack on Islam.

Hawaii Reporter
by James W. Cox

07/19/10

For a second time in history, the government in power over Hawaii is trying to divide the people living on these small islands by race. The last time was in January 1893 when Queen Liliuokalani permanently adjourned the legislature and tried to implement a new constitution reserving suffrage solely to persons with Hawaiian blood. The result of that attempt was civil action by citizens born in Hawaii who would have been disenfranchised by the revised constitution...

Obama’s war on the Internet

Campaign For Liberty
by Philip Giraldi

07/19/10

The Ministry of Truth was how George Orwell described the mechanism used by government to control information in his seminal novel 1984. A recent trip to Europe has convinced me that the governments of the world have been rocked by the power of the internet and are seeking to gain control of it so that they will have a virtual monopoly on information that the public is able to access. In Italy, Germany, and Britain the anonymous internet that most Americans are still familiar with is slowly being modified. If one goes into an internet cafe it is now legally required in most countries in the European Union to present a government issued form of identification...

Coercion is death

Strike the Root
by B.R. Merrick

07/19/10

All governments exist upon the initiation of coercion. Each government that is or ever was has basically said, ‘We are here to protect you, to watch over you, to provide for you, to coordinate you, to rule over you. You have no choice in the matter. This is for our collective posterity. You are free to disagree and to do so as loudly as you wish, but you will obey.’ Name a single earthly government that does not, in essence, say this. You may find greater financial freedom in Singapore, but you can be whacked with a cane if you cross them...

The Retirement Nightmare: Half of Americans Have Less Than $2,000 Banked for Their Golden Years

Scott Thill, AlterNet: "The days of quietly retiring with a nest egg built up from years of savings from a long career on the verge of disappearing. For tens of millions of Americans, facing rising costs, shrinking incomes and growing debts they already have disappeared."

BP's Scheme to Swindle the "Small People"

Dahr Jamail, Truthout: "Gulf Coast fishermen and others with lost income claims against British Petroleum (BP) are outraged by a recent announcement that the $20 billion government-administered claim fund will subtract money they earn by working on the cleanup effort from any future damage claims against BP. This move, according to lawyers in Louisiana working on behalf of Louisiana fishermen and others affected by the BP oil disaster, contradicts an earlier BP statement where the company promised it would do no such thing."

Post-9/11 militarism helps BP, hurts America

AntiWar.Com
by Kelley B. Vlahos

07/20/10

Down on the bayou, reporters and activists have been pulled over and questioned by British Petroleum security guards and local police because they might be ‘terrorists.’ Journalists have been kicked off public property, detained, harassed, and forced to hand over their photographs — and their Social Security numbers. They’ve been prevented from renting boats or flying below 3,000 feet over the coast. They’ve been threatened with arrest. It all sounds pretty In the Heat of the Night, but this goes way beyond the press butting up against powerful interests in the Gulf, or even the government and BP engaging in elaborate CYA message control. Look closer and witness the future. See how they get away with militarizing every law enforcement operation, every domestic emergency response situation, because for years Americans have allowed this creeping militarization to happen. In a post-9/11 world, every problem requires a military solution, and too often in these crises, the people are the problem...

The right wing’s perversion of patriotism

Christian Science Monitor
by Walter Rodgers

It once was a given that you did not discuss religion or politics in polite company. To this list, I would add ‘patriotism.’ It has become the new secular American religion, so mercurial that we cannot even agree about what it is. It is regrettable that a once healthy American patriotism has morphed into intolerant jingoism. Love of country has been hijacked. It was not always thus. As a boy in New England, just after World War II, I was schooled in patriotism quite unlike what’s out there today. The week before Thanksgiving, public schools taught us the Pilgrims’ vision of religious liberty. On Memorial Day, Cub Scouts marched up to Pine Hill Cemetery and laid flowers on the graves of Civil War veterans, who we learned had fought and died to preserve the Union. In Massachusetts, patriotism had special currency because it earned us an extra holiday that schoolchildren in most other states didn’t have, Patriots’ Day...
