Judge says NO to Guantanamo detainee request for Habeas Corpus
Mood:  sad
Now Playing: Twisted game of "Not On USA Soil" We are Beyond The Law!
Topic: HUMANITY



 

So with a alarm and dismay I read this yesterday on the link below.

I copied the full article from the Jurist.law website. In a dismal report it looks like the US is going play "Beyond the reach of the law and order" game with human lives.

In a sickening display of "You can't touch us", the Military gets to do what ever they want on the Cuba Island. They say that American Law has no juristiction and the new Military Act protectes them in their sick demented "approved" ways. It disgusts me and makes this Joe Anybody think ...if ya wanna play that way ...fine .....cause now I say this louder than ever!

IMPEACH BUSH and......

CLOSE GITMO DOWN

 Federal judge invokes

Military Commissions Act

to reject Gitmo habeas petition


Bernard Hibbitts at 4:31 PM ET  12-13-2006

 A federal judge Wednesday dismissed [ruling, PDF] a habeas corpus petition brought by Guantanamo detainee Salim Hamdan [Trial Watch profile], finding it was clearly barred under the controversial habeas-stripping language [JURIST report] of the new Military Commissions Act (MCA) [text, PDF] even though it was pending at the time the Act was passed. Agreeing with a position [JURIST report] on pending habeas petitions taken earlier this fall by the US Department of Justice, US District Judge James Robertson wrote in the first ruling to construe the MCA:

Hamdan's lengthy detention beyond American borders but within the jurisdictional authority of the United States is historically unique. Nevertheless, as the government argues in its reply brief, his connection to the United States lacks the geographical and volitional predicates necessary to claim a constitutional right to habeas corpus. Petitioner has never entered the United States and accordingly does not enjoy the “implied protection” that accompanies presence on American soil. Guantanamo Bay, although under the control of the United States military, remains under “the ultimate sovereignty of the Republic of Cuba.” Presence within the exclusive jurisdiction and control of the United States was enough for the Court to conclude in Rasul that the broad scope of the habeas statute covered Guantanamo Bay detainees, but the detention facility lies outside the sovereign realm, and only U.S. citizens in such locations may claim entitlement to a constitutionally guaranteed writ...

Congress’s removal of jurisdiction from the federal courts was not a suspension of habeas corpus within the meaning of the Suspension Clause (or, to the extent that it was, it was plainly unconstitutional, in the absence of rebellion or invasion), but Hamdan's statutory access to the writ is blocked by the jurisdiction-stripping language of the Military Commissions Act, and he has no constitutional entitlement to habeas corpus.

In the context of his ruling Robertson left unaddressed Hamdan's general arguments that the Military Commissions Act is unconstitutional "because it does not provide an adequate substitute for habeas review, because it violates the principle of separation of powers by instructing the courts to ignore the Supreme Court’s ruling that the Geneva Conventions afford judicially enforceable protections to petitioner Hamdan, because it is an unlawful Bill of Attainder, and because it violates Equal Protection."

Robertson initially granted Hamdan's habeas petition at the initial stage of the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld case in 2004, holding - as he explained Wednesday - that "he could could not be tried lawfully before a military commission that had not [then] been approved by Congress." Robertson's ruling was upheld on appeal [JURIST report] by the US Supreme Court in June this year.

ANALOG TV ....going.... goiNG ......GONE
Mood:  loud
Now Playing: The USA will do this in 2 years - The Netherlands did it Monday
Topic: ANYBODY * ANYDAY

The Netherlands ended transmission of "free to air" analog television Monday, becoming the first nation to switch completely to digital signals.

Few Dutch consumers noticed, because the overwhelming majority get TV via cable. Only around 74,000 households relied primarily on the old-fashioned TV antennas in this country of 16 million, although 220,000 people had an "occasional use" set somewhere such as in a vacation house, camper or boat, according to government figures.

 


 

Last year in the USA, it was estimated that 21 million U.S. households do not get cable or satellite service and rely solely on free over-the-air TV. Consumers Union estimated an additional 20 million homes that have cable or satellite do not have all of their TV sets hooked up to the service and would need converter boxes, too.

Most developed countries have already begun testing or broadcasting digital TV signals on some bandwidths.

WAL-MART Is Exploiting Child Labor Laws
Mood:  crushed out
Now Playing: This holiday season, tell Wal-Mart to adopt a zero tolerance policy on child labor
Topic: CORPORATE CRAP

 


Wal-Mart has repeatedly violated

U.S. child labor laws and

profited from overseas

child labor abuses.



A recent investigation revealed children, some only 11 years old, were making Wal-Mart clothes in a Bangladesh factory. The children report being routinely slapped and beaten, forced to work 12 to 14 hours a day, often seven days a week, for wages as low as 6 and a half cents an hour.

In the United States, Wal-Mart's own internal audit found 1,371 instances in which minors worked too late at night, during school hours, or too many hours in a day. It also found 60,767 instances of workers missing breaks and 15,705 instances where employees were forced to work and miss meal times.

Despite all of this, Wal-Mart refuses to adopt a zero tolerance policy on child labor! Our children deserve better from Wal-Mart.

The pitition says this:

Dear Lee Scott,

I am deeply disturbed to find out that Wal-Mart has repeatedly violated U.S. child labor laws and profited from overseas child labor abuses.

[your comment here]

The following facts are unacceptable:



  • In the United States, Wal-Mart's own internal audit found "extensive violations" of child-labor laws and state regulations.

  • The audit of one week’s time clock records found 1,371 instances in which minors worked too late at night, during school hours, or too many hours in a day. It also found 60,767 instances of workers missing breaks and 15,705 instances where employees were forced to work and miss meal times.
  • A recent investigation revealed children, some only 11 years old, were making Wal-Mart clothes in a Bangladesh factory. The children report being routinely slapped and beaten, forced to work 12 to 14 hours a day, often seven days a week, for wages as low as 6 and a half cents an hour.



How can Wal-Mart do this to children? As a Wal-Mart shopper, I demand that you adopt a zero tolerance policy on child labor.

Sincerely,

Joe Anybody 12-10-06

So Mr Big Pants ---- Its All your Fault !
Mood:  loud
Now Playing: Bush Carries The Full blame
Topic: WAR

So correct me if I am wrong

The Iraq Study Group

Listen to "Randi Rhodes Connect The Dots Audio Clip" on how the Iraq Study Group is old school Iran Contra Guys of Bush Senior days

Then out comes Bush, who  thumbs his nose at it. As I heard said on the radio "Bush Listens To No One" This war and all these decision rest on mr big pant GW Bush.

Did you see where they (Bush and Company) are proposing to spend three trillion dollars on the Iraq war?

THREE TRILLION DOLLARS ......My Goodness that is an absurd amount of money wasted on killing and war and not to mention trying to prove-out that he was right and thus in reality really just cover up for all his many deseptive blunders.

Neil Young Music Video "No More Lies"

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN

I also heard on the same program that the Executive Branch caries a lot more weight on the Foreign Relations and the Overseas Policies. So that said mr george E poo can call the shots and therfore HE take the full blame. Problem is the dumb cluck is gonna ruin the whole world in the process.

So after hearing this on the radio that the White House and mr cluck are the prime responsible party to decide and ultimately make the final decision ...no matter if there was tons of evidence to support not fighting and bring ing the troops home ...he could call the shot and say lets continue this asinine endeavor and

 "there will be no peace" ....

.......kill em all...."

Now if this is not an accurate assumption I would appreciate someone inform me to the reality. But I am afraid this is true. Now the hidden blessing is we get to blame ole 'mr CLUCK' when this all falls into hell and apart. He is the one who is responsible. Now that leads to the next aspect ......

Is mr gw bush dumb as a cluck (that his his name not a question) going to start raising the ante and supply more

 ..........warm young bodies !

to the WAR and death machine?

Is mr cluck going to not only pour tons of more money but more US soldiers too....in fact hundred of thousands more?????

Now have you ever seen those old war movies where one side is loosing the battle and they send out all they got ....every body dies and gets slaughtered because of the ignorance and selfish STUPID greedy and demented twisted leaders mind is gone and he is on a self destruct one track deminishing no return? The whole kit n kaboodle our good old USA is destroyed because of an arrogant fool.

Intelligence is gone ...respect is gone ...truth is not even a word ....and leadership is on a crash course....... the country is on the skids due to this mismanagement.

I also heard on the same radio station that they are using the Social Security money to fund the war and borrowing from other countries banks for example like with China. Our economy, our Constitution, or Forign policy, our Respect, our Honor, are Ethics and Morals, are government, our media, and just about every sacred thing this county prided itself is gone due to this reckless leadership.

And mr clucksy is the one who will be rememberd as The One" if not the only "worst president of the US'

FOR GODS SAKE CAN WE GET THE WHEEL BACK IN CONTROL ?

GET THAT MAN OUT OF OFFICE BEFORE THE SHIT DESTROYS THE FAN

The fan is cover with it ...... see what happens next if its 'his way' it wont be good.

Remember  ......"Mr Bush Listens to No One" he is beyond our own govenment ... it amazes me!

Doesn't that just floor you my fellow readers?

He is listening to no one!

THIS IS... HIS FAULT

Russian Military raid an IBM office in Moscow
Mood:  incredulous
Now Playing: Black Masked and with Fully Automatic Weapons
Topic: CORPORATE CRAP
I read with a bit of shock this odd story of a "Raid" in Moscow.

"Why is IBM getting raided by Government Military with masks on?"

 

 

Below is the first few paragraphs of the short article:

Russian law enforcement personnel armed with automatic weapons swept through IBM's offices in Moscow Wednesday morning, seizing documents as they went, according to sources familiar with the operation.

The motive for the raid was not immediately clear. A spokesman for IBM said the company is "cooperating with the authorities" but declined further comment.

A blogger who works at the office said the raid was carried out by the OMON special forces unit attached to Russia's Ministry of Internal Affairs. "Masked people with machine guns are wandering around the office ... they told us to leave our belongings and cell phones there and leave the room," the blogger wrote. MORE HERE

Now Playing: Say No to Big Media
Topic: MEDIA

I need to pass along this email I received

I feel this is very critical and I recommend you all participate 

Hi Mr. Joe Anybody, 

Imagine if all the news you saw on television, read in your newspaper and heard on the radio came from the same source. That would be bad for democracy; for arts and culture; and for the free exchange of ideas.

Sadly this is not too far removed from reality; eight of the largest media giants already own 90% of the media market.  Furthermore the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering weakening the rules on how many media outlets any one company can own.

Ask the FCC to prevent big media from getting any bigger and to instead encourage more diverse, independent and minority ownership. Then ask your friends and family to do the same by forwarding this email to them.

71 Year Homeless Lady in Portland Ore, Dies on Bus Bench
Mood:  down
Now Playing: Warm Article on a Cold Subject
Topic: HUMANITY

ON MY HOMELESS BLOG WEB SITE I JUST POSTED THIS ARTICLE

This case of a lady who is old enough to be my Grandmother died on a cold Trimet Bus Stop bench on November 29 2006.

We see the warm and fuzzy article on the front page of the "Tribune"

My question is

"WHY ARE 71 YEAR OLD LADIES LIVING AND DIEING ON BUS BENCHES?"

Zebra 3 Readers think about this and what "you" can do to change the ugly side of this aspect. I don't care how fluffy the article in the paper was.....its fricken COLD OUTSIDE ...and any and all elderly ladies need to be -->warm<--  not..... frozen stiff on a sidewalk bench. What the hell is wrong with society to watch this transpire into this tragedy.

A Memorial is being held for Anita Floyd at 2pm on SW 6th & Alder
