The Space Preservation Act of 2001 (HR 2977) was introduced by Dennis Kucinich on Oct. 2 2001. It called for prohibiting the basing of weapons in space by the United States, and to require the President to take action to adopt and implement a world treaty banning space-based weapons.

This included….

Inflicting death or injury on, or damaging or destroying, a person (or the biological life, bodily health, mental health, or physical and economic well-being of a person through the use of land-based, sea-based, or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser, or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood management, or mind control of such persons or populations.

However this did not pass, but a new bill was introduced with major changes which omited that part, along with many other changes. This was HR 3616 which was not passed either, in fact there were four incarnations of this bill and none of them have passed to date.

Why?

The president is visiting the Mideast as some kinds of a savior not like somebody who waged a “war on terror” that has killed Arab civilians.

Federal and state authorities are hotly pursuing an alleged rapist/killer Marine on the run in some southeastern state. Updates on the search crawl under the CNN feed all day. Meanwhile, the screen displays a different sort of heinous American criminal, at large in, of all places, Abu Dhabi. This one, unfortunately, is unlikely to be apprehended anytime soon.

Our Commander in Chief has been striding around the Middle East talking exactly like a man whose opinion carries some Solomonic weight, not like somebody who spent the last four years waging a “war on terror” that killed hundreds of thousands of Arab civilians and displaced millions more.

Dead civilians is the first and worst charge, real felonies if the world justice system worked. Add in the civil claims against him: squandering of international trust and belief in America, domestic economic wreckage, the revolting trampling of civil rights, the thieving of the treasury by no-bid cronies, and the unleashing of a grisly, vicious war that has (read yesterday’s gutsy New York Times report) made psychotic killers of our own young men, and we have a world-class criminal, on the loose.

The mainstream Italian media are reporting both the rigging of the New Hampshire primary for Senator Hillary Clinton and the official demands for a swift, accurate and impartial recount. In an article written by Marcello Foa, one of Europe’s most respected journalists, it appears that vote tallies for all Democratic candidates as well as Republicans were reduced by Diebold vote-counting machines.

In an analysis of the hand-counted ballots, the influential Milanese newspaper – Il Giornale, reports that all Democratic candidates except Senator Hillary Clinton made gains when the New Hampshire ballots were manually tabulated, while Senator Clinton made inexplicably large gains where ballots were tabulated by computerized scanners.

According to the report, Ron Paul should have finished third in the Republican primary rather than fifth. Thus, it would appear that both Barack Obama and Ron Paul were the primary targets of vote-rigging operations in New Hampshire. (more…)

Lines in the Sand: “Gut Check!”

GEF @ 10:08 AM MST

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

THEY ARE GOING FOR THE 2nd AMENDMENT AND ONCE THEY TAKE OUR GUNS THE TYRANTS IN POWER WILL ENSLAVE US!

Public ‘threatened’ by private-firearms ownership
Government argues gun restrictions ‘permitted by the 2nd Amendment’

via: Worldnetdaily


Paul Clement

Since “unrestricted” private ownership of guns clearly threatens the public safety, the 2nd Amendment can be interpreted to allow a variety of gun restrictions, according to the Bush administration.

The argument was delivered by U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement in a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in the ongoing arguments over the legality of a District of Columbia ban on handguns in homes, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.

Clement suggested that gun rights are limited and subject to “reasonable regulation” and said all federal limits on guns should be upheld.

Just two in 10 say they are getting ahead financially

ANALYSIS by GARY LANGER

POLL: A New Low in Approval Starts Bush’s Final Year

Beset by growing economic concerns on top of the long unpopular war in Iraq, President Bush starts the last year of his presidency with the worst approval rating of his career.

Just 32 percent of Americans now approve of the way Bush is handling his job, while 66 percent disapprove. Bush’s work on the economy has likewise reached a new low. And he shows no gain on Iraq; despite reduced violence there, 64 percent say the war was not worth fighting, 2 points from its high.

Given these complaints, 77 percent in this ABC News/Washington Post poll say the country is headed off on the wrong track — the most since the federal government shut down in a deeply unpopular budget battle in early 1996.

Three post-World War II presidents have gone lower than Bush in overall approval — Jimmy Carter (28 percent), Richard Nixon (24 percent) and Harry Truman (22 percent). But after three straight years in the doghouse, Bush is just two months away from Truman’s record of 38 months without majority approval — far beyond any other.

Showdown Over Destroyed CIA Tapes This Week

Will Congress Offer Immunity to Find Out What Really Happened to Alleged Torture Tapes?

By JOHN COCHRAN

In a closed door hearing scheduled for Wednesday, Congress plans to ask why the CIA destroyed tapes showing interrogations of suspected al-Qaeda operatives. Was it a cover-up?

National security author Ken Timmerman says, “All the members of the House Intelligence Committee are very upset about this, Republicans and Democrats.”
