    Gang Founder Claimed Innocence Until the End By KIM CURTIS, Associated Press Writer Tue Dec 13,11:26 AM ET SAN QUENTIN, Calif. - Stanley Tookie Williams maintained his innocence right up until his death, even when an admission of guilt may have spared him execution. ADVERTISEMENT Even after the courts and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger rejected a flurry of Williams' last-ditch appeals before his execution early Tuesday, his supporters vowed to prove his innocence. Williams, the Crips gang co-founder whose case stirred a national debate about capital punishment versus the possibility of redemption, was executed Tuesday morning for killing four people in...

    Big Oil: So what happened to the $19 billion judgment against Chevron over rainforest pollution in Ecuador? Seems the leftist lawyer behind it all now finds himself in the dock on a RICO rap for a massive fraud. This has been going on for years, the oft-repeated meme that Chevron, through its Texaco acquisition, polluted the rainforest floor and poisoned its helpless villagers. Activist Bianca Jagger is emblematic of this disregard for fact. In the Huffington Post, she wrote that while she's no apologist for Chevron's accusers, the bottom line is: "Ecuadorian communities were the victims of exploitation by a...

    ALBANY, N.Y. – New York's top court has upheld the eviction of Bianca Jagger from a rent-stabilized Manhattan apartment. The Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that foreigners on tourist visas cannot claim New York digs as a "primary residence." The globe-trotting human rights activist and ex-wife of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger was evicted in December from the Upper East Side apartment she rented for 20 years.

    If George Bush and Tony Blair had presided as CEOs over deceptive and fraudulent practices in the City comparable to those they are guilty of with regard to Iraq, they would have been immediately and unceremoniously sacked. Five years on, the legacy of the Iraq war is now clear. Let us look at the balance sheet. Based on an extrapolation from the figures of the Lancet study, more than 1 million Iraqi civilians have died - a figure that might even eclipse the genocide in Rwanda.

    Iran va Jahan ^ | Wednesday, December 07, 2005 | Amir Taheri
    It all started as a rather pleasant, if not exciting evening. We had heard a speech from British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw once again trying to "explain" the evil of Islamofascim in pseudo-theological, rather than political, terms. But that had been compensated for with a poem from the great mystic poet Roumi recited by Iranian journalist Nazanin Ansari. Apart from the usual contingent of "the great and the good" most of the 800 or so people present were media people and their friends, come to cheer or boo as the Foreign Press Association in London distributed its annual prizes.

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - Back in 1968 Mick Jagger had plenty of "Sympathy for the Devil," but his first wife Bianca is far more critical of "The Great Satan" and fears U.S. unwillingness to talk to Iran could lead to conflict. Rights campaigner Jagger, the Council of Europe's goodwill ambassador, has traveled to Iran with a group called "U.S. Academics for Peace," seeking to ensure the Islamic Republic does not become the next Iraq. The group argues the mudslinging rhetoric branding the United States as "The Great Satan" and Iran as part of the "axis of evil" is one of the...

    Let me see if I've got this straight: Radical Iraqi Sunni Muslim terrorists spearhead an organized "insurgency" against the democratization of their country. In doing so, they commit atrocities — from car- and suicide-bombings that have killed many hundreds, if not thousands, of their fellow citizens as well as civilian foreign nationals and U.S. and coalition forces working to help the majority of Iraqis achieve their goal of self-government, to beheadings of innocent civilians (whose only crime seems to have been that they had the ultimate wrong-place-wrong-time misfortune to be identified by their radical Islamist captors as infidels) telecast around...

    SHE has rarely been out of the spotlight of publicity since she married Mick Jagger in 1971. But while some celebrities may use their fame to boost their fortunes, Bianca Jagger has been rewarded for using her status to help others.The former model has won this year’s "alternative Nobel" prize - along with two Indian religious scholars, an Argentine scientist and a Russian human rights group - for her human rights campaigning work. Ms Jagger, who was born in Nicaragua, has been a prominent rights activist since her eight-year marriage to the Rolling Stones frontman ended in 1979, campaigning in...

    I recently hosted Bianca Jagger for a debate in Berlin. (More about her in a moment.) We convened in a back room at Max Moritz, a smoky pub in Kreutzberg, a neighborhood in Berlin known mostly for Turkish guest workers and left-wing anarchists. Crossing swords with Bianca was Gen. (ret.) Joerg Schoenbohm, the center-right interior minister from the nearby state of Brandenburg. The issue: "Human Rights -- Victim in the War on Terror?" Joerg Lau, the culture editor of the weekly Die Zeit, rounded off the panel. The room was packed. Diplomats, think tankers, students, taxi drivers, and locals sipped...

    Although they swear that Robert G. Torricelli never really had an inside track, several top officials in the McGreevey administration said last week that the former U.S. senator has been declared radioactive and his clients are to get nothing from the state. "The word from the front office is he's cut off," said one Cabinet officer, using the Trenton insider term for the governor's office. "They said, 'Cut him off and the people he brings around.' I sent the word to my people not to send anything he's connected with to my desk." Another Cabinet member said there had initially...

Everywhere he went, O'Rourke encountered Europeans who were incensed not with the Soviets, who were pointing missiles at them, but with the Americans, who were defending them. He called these people "Euro-weenies."</p>

ReillySummary: Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen is the latest victim of People for the American Way's campaign against President Bush's judicial nominees. On September 5, the Senate Judiciary Committee in a 10-9 party-line vote rejected her nomination to the Fifth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. When the electronic voting machines introduced in last month's Florida primary elections failed to correct the voting irregularities that appeared during the state's 2000 presidential election, People for the American Way (PFAW)...
