“I used to think Sarkozy was a Bulgarian sitcom until I discovered he is an Israeli assault rifle!” ~ Anonymous

Did the Israeli war machine and their agents provocateurs mastermind the recent paramilitary style riots by North African emigrants in France to ensure Nicolas Sarkozy the presidency?

Perry spares inmate set to die today

Victory rally at the Governor’s Mansion in Austin, — 5:00 pm

Thank you very much to the more than 5,000 people who wrote Governor Perry, the Board of Pardons and Paroles and every member of the Texas Legislature. Thank you to the many members of the Foster family, lawyers and activists around the world in the Save Kenneth Foster Campaign who have worked on this case and saved Kenneth’s life. You have made a difference! You have made history! Extra thank you to the Campaign to End the Death Penalty in Austin who worked very hard for Kenneth.

HUNTSVILLE – Gov. Rick Perry accepted a recommendation from the state parole board and said today he would spare condemned prisoner Kenneth Foster from execution and commute his sentence to life. Foster had been scheduled to die tonight.

“After carefully considering the facts of this case, along with the recommendation from the Board of Pardons and Paroles, I believe the right and just decision is to commute Foster’s sentence from the death penalty to life imprisonment,” Perry said in a statement. “I am concerned about Texas law that allowed capital murder defendants
to be tried simultaneously and it is an issue I think the Legislature should examine.”

The seven-member parole board had voted 6-1 to recommend the commutation.

Perry did not have to accept the highly unusual recommendation from the board whose members he appoints.

Foster was the getaway driver and not the actual shooter in the slaying of a 25-year-old man in San Antonio 11 years ago. Foster acknowledged he and his friends were up to no good as he drove them around San Antonio in a rental car and robbed at least four people 11 years ago before the slaying of Michael LaHood Jr. “It was wrong,” Foster, 30, said recently from death row. “I don’t want to downplay that. I was wrong for that. I was too much of a follower. I’m straight up about that.”

Another execution, the first of five scheduled for September in Texas, is set for next week when South Carolina native Tony Roach faces injection Wednesday for the strangling of an Amarillo woman, Ronnie Dawn Hewitt, 37, during a burglary of her apartment nine years ago.
________________________________________
13 Texas legislators wrote clemency letters. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram wrote an editorial today in which they mention the letters by Rep Harold Dutton and other state reps urging clemency for Kenneth Foster. The editorial says Perry should listen to Texans, and now he has.

If your representative is Harold Dutton, Jessica Farrar, Elliot Naishtat , Mike Villareal, Terri Hodge, Sylvester Turner, Donna Howard, Alma Allen, Eddie Rodriguez, Helen Giddings, Ruth Jones McClendon, Dora Olivo, or Lon Burnam, you should call them and say thank you. They helped when we needed them.

You can also send an email to Governor Perry, saying THANK YOU!

EJUSA Chooses Texas for Special Anti-Death Penalty Retreat in Texas

As many of you know, a group of Texas organizations working against the death penalty recently put together a team to apply for a retreat sponsored by Equal Justice USA in order to strategize about a way forward to stop executions in Texas. Thank you to those people who wrote EJUSA on our behalf. We received some good news from EJUSA. An excerpt from their email follows:

Dear friends in Texas,

After looking through the application from Texas and seeing your unique situation, EJUSA wants to give you all some special attention and offer your team a different opportunity than this year’s Training and Strategy retreat. We’d like to tailor a special strategy, skill-building, and planning meeting/retreat specifically for the movement in Texas. This will allow more people than just the five of you to be involved and will also give us the opportunity to adapt an agenda specifically for your needs.

We hope that this will be ‘more bang for your buck’ so to speak and will really allow us all to make progress in building both capacity and support in Texas.

I’m really looking forward to working with you all and learning more about the movement and possibilities in Texas!

on behalf of the entire EJUSA staff,
Sarah Craft
Texas Moratorium Network

Do something against the canadian police-state

Posted by terres on September 22, 2007

BROTHERS, SISTERS, FRIENDS AND ALLIES YOUR HELP IS NEEDED – PLEASE PASS THIS FAR AND WIDE TO YOUR LISTS AND TAKE ACTION

Do something against the canadian police-state — running dog of U.S. imperialism that it is — and for a world beyond capitalism: sign the below petition in support of Shawn Brant; and pass this event email along.

I’ve been in actions and events with Shawn Brant being in a leadership position. He’s the real deal. So no wonder the fascists who run the canadian state for the Rich want to make an example of him. This is one reason why we call them pigs. Same goes for their lying mass-media — which we have to replace with our own.

So give 100% support to the indigenous struggle: it’s part of ours.

— grok.

Cosmic Scale Evil: Money Fetishism and the Looming Omnicide

Cosmic Scale Evil: Money Fetishism and the Looming Omnicide

Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
~ Cree prophecy

Two frequently asked questions I receive regularly are, first, whether humanoids are an intelligent species; second, are they good or evil?

If, having evolved for 1.5 million years, a species is unable planning to survive another 20 years, I normally retort, and the actual chances of their survival in large numbers is about as big as a fat zero even in 10 years, would you consider that species intelligent or stupid? Humanoids depend on planet Earth and its life support systems to survive, yet they have wreaked destruction on the planet driving her ecosystems to the verge of imminent collapse. Would you say they are good or evil?

The activities of humanoids, especially the elite, are not consistent with the way of life!

What is Evil? Most everyone used to have a mind image or an emotional intelligence of what evil was, or represented. They readily identified evil with the wrongs of the world. Today, however, most definitions create confusion portraying evil as what is ‘anti-norm.’ The ‘new’ definitions, which are concocted from the ever-shifting narratives created by the Hollywood clique and their slick counterparts in the media, have permeated the public psyche with ease. Truth, goodness and other basic decencies of civilization play no part in those definitions. Never before in the history of civilization has sight overcome right to such outrageous extents.

Not surprisingly, the new definitions utterly fail to depict evil. If anything, they serve to pervert the meaning, while giving rise to fallacies of ad hominem, name-calling and demonizing of the subject. When George W. Bush was busy planning the genocide of Iraqis (George W. Bush and Tony Blair together with their puppeteers, cohorts and mercenaries have murdered about 1million Iraqis since March 2003 in their war of aggression), he called Iraq, among other states, an ‘axis of evil.’

Traditionally, within the monotheistic religions, evil represented what was ‘wicked,’ ‘malevolent,’ ‘sinful,’ ‘iniquitous,’ ‘immoral,’ or simply ‘against God,’ something to avoid, especially for fear of divine consequences.

Theologians’ paradoxical definitions, however, gave rise to the ‘problem of evil,’ the dilemma of reconciling the existence of evil (and suffering) alongside an omnibenevolent (the state of being perfectly good), omnipotent, and omniscient God. The futile attempts by the theodecians (philosophers) to solve this dilemma through self–negating theodicies resulted in lowering the threshold of common values of morality.

Most readers have come a long way from viewing the “almighty” as an angry Herculean male figure with a bloodstained sword in one hand, ready to slay and smite more sinners, while clutching to lightening and fire with the other hand poised to strike down or rain brimstone on the unbelievers who might escape the first pass.

‘Lord finally had it with Sodom, not to mention Gomorrah,’ goes the legend. So why has he spared the White House, not to mention 10 Downing Street? Why no pillars of salt stand staring at the onlookers outside the Capitol Hill or the Houses of Parliament? Surely, it cannot be for lacking evil.

Evil is as evil does,’ utters the modern ‘sage.’ But, he stops short of proclaiming what exactly evil is or his doings are. Is it a person, gene, meme, ideology, creed, philosophy? Is evil a he, she, group, race? Why do evil? How do evildoers keep score? When does evil occur? What is worst evil? What is cosmic scale evil?

Cosmic scale evil is the killing of everything, omnicide, the wholesale obliteration of all living beings on our planet, through systematic destruction of Earth’s ecosystems.

It has taken an incredible 4.5 billion years for our precious planet to evolve from a fiery ball to become the exclusive oasis of life, the solitary habitat for the living species in an otherwise cold, dark, inhospitable segment of the observable universe. Yet, in an infinitesimal fraction of that time the money fetishism of a cabal of moneychangers, who have corrupted all social, political and cultural systems manipulating the masses through deception and coercion, has sown the seeds of our destruction driving a living planet to certain ecological death.

The Babylonian cabal’s web of intrigue has perverted all spiritual and political ideologies as well as social and cultural institutions that might pose the slightest threat to their agenda, while establishing fake organizations [they are designed as management tools to control the masses and insure against unforeseen circumstances] and self-serving systems of economy and politics that have promoted and protected their nefarious plot to control the world, albeit an ultimately lifeless world.

They created a myth with a carefully calculated narrative that promoted their plot as ‘compassionate,’ ‘free world,’ ‘democratic,’ among an array of weasel words, while circumventing social conscience and exerting their control in the name of human community, but at the expense of destroying life on Earth. They created a veil of repression which obfuscated benevolent, sustainable economic and social models that would benefit humanity at no cost to the environment. They drove the world at full throttle toward omnicide.

As a result, 15 out of 24 ecosystems that are vital for supporting life on our planet face imminent collapse including fresh water, fisheries, air and water purification systems, and the systems that regulate climate, natural hazards, and pests—with the remaining one-third of our life support systems following closely.

Meanwhile, the Babylonian creed has helped the shareholders of the top 10 banks in the world amass combined assets of about 16trillion dollars in 2006 [c.f., total GDP for 2006 calculated at the official exchange rate was an estimated 46.7trillion dollars.] How much of 16 trillion dollars in paper, gold, platinum, diamond … could you consume to satisfy your basic needs in the middle of The Sixth Great Extinction?
