As the economic crisis continues to intensify, scores of US cities are enacting undemocratic laws that criminalize homelessness and trample on the rights of the growing number of homeless individuals and families who reside in these cities, according to a report released last month. In Orlando, the City Council passed a law prohibiting the sharing of food with 25 people or more in parks in the downtown area of the city. The law against sharing food can only be seen as a direct attack against the democratic rights of homeless individuals as there is no conceivable purpose for it other than to make life even more difficult for people living on the streets.

It was a scene replayed with alarming frequency in Texas: a 46-year-old man walked out of prison here Friday afternoon after spending 23 years behind bars for a sex crime that the evidence suggests he did not commit.

A damning appraisal by the influential foreign affairs select committee on Britain's role in the rendition of terror suspects and alleged complicity of torture condemns the government's lack of transparency on vital areas of concern. In particular, the MPs, in a report released today, call for an explanation for the missing papers, which might explain the role of Diego Garcia, the British overseas territory, in the US's "extraordinary rendition" programme.
John Bolton has been associated with the ‘JINSA’ (Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs) which Colin Powell conveyed (in Washington Post correspondent Karen DeYoung’s bio book about him) was in control of the Pentagon.
President's approval ratings plummet as Republican campaign threatens to inflict devastating political defeat. Debate fuelled by Sarah Palin's remarks that new legislation would force her child to go before a 'death panel' President Barack Obama has become mired in a frenzied fight over US healthcare reform as Republicans scent a devastating political victory that could hobble his presidency.
Paul J. Balles shows how the US media’s application of Joseph Goebbels’s dictum – that a lie, if audacious enough and repeated enough times, will be believed by the masses – has produced a plethora of anti-Arab bigots, from the likes of Steve Emerson, Alan Dershowitz, Caroline Glick and Ruth Conniff to the racist ranting of brainless lumpen on the internet.
