Gaps In McCain's Military Record Raise Questions; McCain's Secret, Questionable Record


(by Immanuel Wallerstein )

Let no one underestimate it. Barack Obama has won big. He has not only won the Democratic nomination for president. He is going to sweep the elections with a large majority of the Electoral College and a considerable increase in Democratic strength in both houses of the Congress. Before we analyze how far he will go, can go - that is, how much of a change this will actually mean - we must spell out how real is his electoral triumph...(click below to read more; h/t Alan Breslaur's HotPotatoMash)

US Army Sergeant Matthis Chiroux Refuses to Deploy to Iraq

Sergeant Matthis Chiroux served in the Army for five years, with tours in Afghanistan, Japan, Germany and the Philippines. Last month, Chiroux announced he would not deploy to Iraq. On Sunday, Father’s Day, the deadline for him to report for active duty expired.

SGT. MATTHIS CHIROUX: OK, I was supposed to report Sunday, Father’s Day. I did not. I was in Washington, D.C. with the Iraq Veterans Against the War at their chapter house. I gave a short speech on the porch of our house there, and I stood with my dad, and I kept my promise to the military, I kept my promise to my country, to refuse an illegal order to participate in an unlawful occupation.

I put up "Natural News" on the Big Dan's Big Links on the right. It seems to be a good site, and here's an article from it:

U.S. School District to Begin Micro chipping Students

As the American economy slowed to a crawl and stockholders watched their money evaporate, CEO pay still chugged to yet more dizzying heights last year, an Associated Press analysis shows.
The AP review of compensation for the heads of companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 index finds the median pay package added up to nearly $8.4 million. That's a comfortable gain of about $280,000 from 2006.

The 3 1/2 percent pay increase for CEOs came even as the landscape for both workers and shareholders darkened considerably and the economy was choked by a housing market in free fall, layoffs and soaring prices for fuel and food.

At the top of the AP list: John Thain, who took the reins of Merrill Lynch on Dec. 1, 2007. His $83 million pay package was supercharged by a signing bonus and other enticements that lured him from the New York Stock Exchange to lead the investment bank as it was suffering its worst-ever losses.

Collectively, the 10 best-paid CEOs made more than half a billion dollars last year. Yet half the members of this stratospheric club were leading companies whose profits shrank dramatically.

The EPA is under siege from political pressure. On numerous issues—ranging from mercury pollution to groundwater contamination to climate change—political appointees have edited scientific documents, manipulated scientific assessments, and generally sought to undermine the science behind dozens of EPA regulations.


Republican senator from Arizona questions the official 9/11 fairy-tale story (like me), and makes total sense! 95% of her mail & email is in support of her! How come this isn't on TV? Wake up, people! The corporate owned/controlled media ANBCBSNNX is deciding for YOU...what's news and what isn't! She's likely to turn up hanging in her mother's shed, like "suicide" wink wink DC Madam...). If you question the official fairy-tale story that 3 buildings fell down in their own footprints in a pulverized fashion, and one of them wasn't even hit by a plane (WTC-7)...be very afraid of recent comments by Scalia, Gingrich, Bush, William Kristol, and others fascists when they say there will be another attack whenever they don't get their way, like that recent Supreme Court decision giving Habeus Corpus rights back to prisoners.
