  • Mom describes nightmare of Marine's incarceration (Charges Navy w/inhumane treatment - Pendleton 8)

    World Net Daily ^ | 9/7/06 | Joseph Farah
    The mother of a Marine corporal charged with the murder of an Iraqi along with seven other servicemen says Navy prosecutors are trying to frame the "Pendleton 8" – denying them access to evidence, attempting to coerce confessions and treating them more harshly than terrorist prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Leanne Magincalda, mother of Cpl. Marshall Magincalda, blamed leaks by Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., for creating a climate of witch-hunt hysteria surrounding the case, leading to isolation and harassment of the incarcerated soldiers. She told WND the parents of the eight have seen most of the evidence against their sons, and...

    WASHINGTON -- Democrats are poised to fan out across the country today to tout their ``Six for '06" agenda -- a series of easily digestible policy proposals that party leaders hope will help them shed their reputation for diluting their positions with maddening complexity and nuance. Taking inspiration from the Republicans' 1994 ``Contract With America," Democrats have reduced their policy proposals to a series of short, pithy promises that challengers can offer as the party's vision in an election they want to be determined by national trend lines and issues. ``People want to know what we stand for, but they...

    August 2, 2006 Democrats Dream, Everyone Else Pays By Carol Turoff The Democrats "American Dream Initiative" is based on the old carrot-and-stick trick. Dangle other people's money in an attempt to purchase votes and win back Congress. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has come up with a sure-fire idea to reclaim the White House in 2008. Buy it! "Americans are earning less while the costs of a middle-class life have soared," Clinton shouted into the microphone at a meeting of the Democratic Leadership Council, as she introduced the group's "American Dream Initiative." The centerpiece of the proposal includes a $500 "Baby...

    Republicans in Congress are playing a cynical game of politics with the lives of millions of hard-working Americans by attaching a long overdue raise in the minimum wage to fiscally irresponsible tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. President Bush doesn't support an increase in the minimum wage either, and his recent comments on the prosperity of our economy reveal how deeply out of touch his administration is with the lives of working Americans. While the president and the Republican leadership in Congress are promoting more and more tax giveaways for a small number of wealthy Americans that will only increase...

    THE CENTER-left Democratic Leadership Council has figured out rightly that the American middle class feels it is too low on the Bush totem pole, so the DLC has devised an American Dream Initiative that promises to relieve the middle class in ways that would never occur to the Bushies -- while helping to elect more Democrats. On the politics, the American Dream Initiative is brilliant. The Bushies clearly don't understand how it looks to the heartland when the administration tries to get rid of half of the IRS auditors who investigate inheritance tax returns.

    WASHINGTON - Democrats plan to press for a minimum wage increase and "tough, smart" national security in their final push to wrest power from the Republicans in the November elections. House and Senate Democrats will hold a joint meeting on Thursday to discuss events planned for the 100 days leading up to midterm congressional elections and lay out their party agenda, called "A New Direction for America." It's a compilation of positions the party has staked out over the past few months on income, national security, energy, education, health care and retirement accounts.

    Centrist Democrats, led by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, yesterday unveiled a policy manifesto to win back Congress and the White House and distance the party from its clamorous left wing. Highlights included proposals to make college tuition and home buying more accessible, expand the availability of health care, and provide greater retirement security, all leavened with a smidgen of Bush-bashing. The war in Iraq, the fulcrum for angry splits between liberals and centrists in several races nationwide, was scarcely mentioned. Proposals included directing more federal money to states to lower the costs of college, expanding the home-mortgage...

    Testing lines for 2008, Democrats with presidential ambitions accused President Bush and the Republicans of making a mess of the economy and Iraq while arguing that Democrats offer the best hope for a rising middle class that's preferred the GOP. "They're not taking care of America. They're bankrupting our country and failing to address the problems," Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., said Monday, citing skyrocketing gas, college and health care costs.

    DENVER (Reuters) - New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a possible White House contender in 2008, said on Monday the Bush administration had hurt working Americans and Democrats must offer new ideas to strengthen the middle class. "Americans are earning less while the costs of a middle-class life have soared," Clinton told the centrist Democratic Leadership Council, a group that aided her husband Bill Clinton's rise to the presidency in 1992 but has clashed in recent years with the party's more liberal wing.

    When Officer Manuel Gonzalez was stabbed to death Jan. 10, 2005, the inmate suspected in the killing was out of his cell – in violation of standing orders at the prison. Gonzalez, a veteran officer at the California Institution for Men in Chino, also wasn’t wearing his protective "stab-resistant" vest. That’s because it, and hundreds more like it, were in storage and had never been distributed. The killing came a year and a half after prison laundry employee Karen Gossom claims she was sexually assaulted by her supervisor while at work. An Internal Affairs investigation sustained the allegations, and Gossom...

He signalled his determination to remain in Downing Street by promoting trusted and loyal ministers, sacking Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, and demoting six ministers, including Jack Straw and the disgraced John Prescott. It was a defiant rebuff for supporters of Gordon Brown who stepped up their demands for Mr Blair to quit after Labour was relegated to third...

Deborah Rowe Jackson was married to the singer for three years starting in 1996 and is the mother of 8-year-old Prince Michael and 7-year-old Paris.

    This is a link to a German Video Feed. The content of the report itself is typical (America is Doomed, blah blah) but a few facts are reprted well. I wish to call attention though to the commentator at the beginning and end of the report - his comments and attitude reflect what a majority of the German People think - he even seems to enjoy his sarcastic barbs. Clicking on the link should take you directly to the video feed.

    Olympic dream turns to nightmare for Athens Helena Smith in Athens Wednesday March 3, 2004 The Guardian (UK) Just 163 days before the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Athens at least half of the city's projects for the games are still unfinished, according to Greek MPs and media. The majority of the unfinished sites are reportedly not even halfway to completion. For a country proud of its classical legacy, the situation is deeply embarrassing. Among the sites facing problems are the marathon course, which traces part of the original route run by the messenger Phidippides in 490BC, and the...

    Email this Story WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Sen. Tom Carper wants to preserve Delaware's reputation as the home of tax-free shopping by slapping an Internet sales tax on online shoppers in other states. More and more Americans are discovering that online shopping can be quick, convenient and, in many cases, tax free, since many Internet retailers don't charge sales tax. Thus, residents of Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and other nearby states have less incentive to drive to Delaware when they can buy merchandise tax-free with a few strokes on a computer keyboard. Alarmed by the growing trend, Carper (D-Del.) is...

    SEOUL -- Han, a Communist Party official in North Korea, was walking home from work when he heard he was in trouble. He had smuggled a radio back from China after an official trip. He listened to it late at night, huddled with earphones on and shades drawn, to hear music that brought him a whisper of sanity and took him away from the horrors of his day.

    I went to bed last night like most of you, unsure of what will eventually happen with the situation in Iraq, wondering what the anti-American protesters are thinking and what they are going to do next and wary of anything that has to do with the liberal-left and the mainstream news media. It seems people like you and I have a lot on our minds these days. But I laid down my head knowing in my heart that supporting the President was the right thing to do being the modern day patriot that I consider myself to be. But hours...

    The draft Constitution for Europe which was published last Thursday is a shameful document, destructive of democracy, disastrous for Europe, disastrous for Britain and for all the other present and prospective members of the European Union. It has even been drafted in a disorderly and undemocratic way. I would not want anyone to take my word for it. The website address of the European Commission is www.europa.eu.int. From that website one can get to the home page of the European Convention. The draft Constitution, in its present form, runs to 19 pages, which can be downloaded. Those who do so...

    GERMANY’S Social Democrats, facing almost certain defeat in regional elections next week, are calling for the return of Oskar Lafontaine, the left-wing firebrand once dubbed the “most dangerous man in Europe”. For some of his former colleagues, Oskar Lafontaine is beginning to look like a saviour If Gerhard Schröder’s former Finance Minister returns to centre stage it will be one of the most remarkable comebacks since the war; for three years he has been pronounced politically dead. “We should no longer shut the door on him,” Ludwig Stiegler, deputy leader of the Social Democratic parliamentary group, said. “He is welcome...

    The owner of a toy museum is calling on the public to boycott an art exhibition that features the charred and mutilated bodies of teddy bears. Deady Bears, which forms part of a wider work entitled A Walk on the Darkside at the Artlounge gallery in Lytham St Anne's, Lancs, features cuddly toys that have been variously dismembered, pierced with 6in nails and daubed with red paint intended to resemble blood. Irena Thompson, who runs the nearby Toy and Teddy Bear Museum, is outraged. "This exhibition is simply dreadful, and I do not see what the artist is trying to...
