Police brutality and Oscar Grant's murder

New Footage Reveals Police Brutality Prior to Oscar Grant Murder
New cellphone footage of the night of Oscar Grant's murder has surfaced. What does it show? It seems, according to reports, a second BART officer, not Johannes Mehserle, can be seen assaulting a suspect moments before Grant's shooting death. In the footage, the officer, named Tony Pirone, goes over to one of the New Year's Day men who was sitting on the ground and clocks him square in the face. KTVU had this to say after viewing the footage:
"That was quite a shot," says Peter Keane a law professor with University of California Hastings College of Law. "That's a pretty brutal punch, knocks his head back, sends him to the ground."

No Such Thing As a Government 'Stimulus'

The only way the government can pay for its projects and programs is by robbing others of the wealth they've generated. Indeed, the state's very existence is dependent upon wealth destruction. Therefore, it is absurd to believe that the government can create wealth. And if it cannot create wealth, it most certainly cannot "stimulate" the economy. It can only weaken and eventually destroy it.

As Israeli-Hamas violence flared, President Barack Obama's new Mideast envoy promised on Wednesday a vigorous push for peace, saying Gaza militants must end their weapons smuggling and the blockaded borders must be pried open if a cease-fire is to take hold.

Hey George Mitchell, I strongly suggest that you SEE TO IT that your country (BTW, that is the US) stops funding and supplying the holocaust specialists in Israel.

Hang Him Up? The Bad Judge and His Image

The New York Times Online | BENJAMIN WEISER | Tues- Jan 27, 2009

The portrait was of Martin T. Manton, who sat for two decades on the prestigious federal appeals court for the Second Circuit in Manhattan, and who was almost appointed to the United States Supreme Court. But in 1939, he resigned in disgrace. He was accused of taking large sums in gifts and loans from parties in cases, was tried and convicted and spent 19 months in prison.

In some ways, the legacy of Judge Manton has already been erased from the legal annals: two federal judges in Manhattan recalled that when they were law clerks, their judges admonished them never to cite Judge Manton’s opinions.

Prez AKA, another elitist,W.H. gang leader

By Lynn Stuter
January 27, 2009

"On January 21, 2009, as one of his first acts as usurper-in-chief, AKA issued a memorandum regarding the Freedom of Information Act. In that memorandum he stated,
“The Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails."

Wow, how wonderful! This must mean that AKA has finally seen the light; that he’s going to release all his medical records, passport records, education records, selective service records, adoption records, naturalization records, and last but not least, all his birth certificates, however many of them there are, that we all might know what they truly say about his eligibility to the office of president.

Slow Poison

In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies. No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so scientists have to create them. They make these creatures morbidly obese by injecting them with MSG when they are first born.

The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and perhaps humans) to become obese. They even have a name for the fat rodents they create: 'MSG-Treated Rats.'

Financial Elite Have No Shame

By Linda McQuaig

January 27, 2009 "Toronto Star" -- - Let's imagine, for a moment, how different the public debate would be today if it had been unions that had caused the current economic turmoil.

In other words, try to imagine a scenario in which union leaders - not financial managers - were the ones whose reckless behaviour had driven a number of Wall Street firms into bankruptcy and in the process triggered a worldwide recession.

Needless to say, it's hard to imagine a labour leader being appointed to oversee a bailout of unions the way former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson was put in charge of supervising the $700 billion bailout of his former Wall Street colleagues.

Time's Up Obama - Yes Already - on Torture

I hope those who've chosen torture will be brought to justice by Barack Obama - immediately. Failure to act resolutely and swiftly with actions demonstrating that America is better than torture will be part of a myriad of small cuts that eventually bleed America to death.
