Big-Money Chamber of Commerce to Impact Elections, Mostly for GOP

Peter Stone, McClatchy Newspapers: ''The chamber s biggest donors for political, lobbying and other programs have in recent years included energy giants, the pharmaceutical industry, insurance companies and Wall Street firms. After it unsuccessfully opposed creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the chamber and its center have tried to limit the bureau s powers and budget.''

Five Million Voters May Lose Rights in the 2012 Elections

Brentin Mock, ''Many voter ID proponents might argue that voter ID are made possible by the success stories of the civil rights movement, but they also want to place barriers to voting because civil rights legislation may have been too successful, as evidenced by a U.S. president who s not only a Democrat but is black. Those working to put voter restrictions in place don t want that kind of election to happen again.''

The Transparently Secretive Chamber of Commerce

Robert Weissman, Public Citizen: ''Well, the Big Business guys are transparent about one thing: They can t stand the idea of the public holding them to account for their attempts to buy elections and influence policy, or even that they be prevented from corrupting the government contracting process through campaign spending. The latest: They are so terrified even of having their political spending disclosed that they are pushing in Congress legislation that would prohibit the government from requiring contractors to disclose their campaign-related spending.''

Monsanto Roundup Shown to Be Ravaging Butterfly Populations

Mike Barrett, Natural Society: ''Although the butterfly population may be suffering, humans are taking heat from Monsanto s creations as well. Past research has shown that Monsanto s Roundup ready crops are leading to mental illness and obesity, primarily by destroying the amount of good bacteria found in the gut. The corporation s Roundup, containing glyphosate, has also been shown to cause infertility and birth defects.''

Occupying Corporations: How to Cut Corporate Power

Bill Quigley, Truthout: ''Corporations are obviously not people. But Romney is correct in the sense that corporations have hijacked most of the rights of people while evading the responsibilities. An important part of the social justice agenda is democratizing corporations. This means we must radically change the laws so people can be in charge of corporations. We must strip them of corporate personhood and cut them down to size so democracy can work. People are taking action so democracy can regulate the size, scope and actions of corporations.''

Amy Dean, Truthout: ''As one of the more promising offshoots of the Occupy movement, Occupy Our Homes, the grassroots effort to prevent evictions and foreclosures, has continued to organize throughout the winter.... For this installment, I spoke with a West Coast activist who is both a leader in anti-foreclosure activism in Los Angeles and a participant in national coalitions organizing around this issue. Amy Schur is executive director of the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE).''

The Ron Paul revolution continues

Cato Institute
by Christopher Preble


For most of this campaign season, an unassuming septuagenarian has been striking terror in the hearts of the Republican establishment. Much as he did in 2008, Ron Paul has exposed a rift within the Republican Party between small-government, anti-war libertarians and big-government, pro-war neoconservatives. Although Paul has yet to win a plurality in any state, he more than doubled his 2008 vote percentage in Iowa and tripled it in New Hampshire. He retains an enthusiastic following, particularly among younger voters. And he will make a lasting mark on the Republican Party, and the United States, if his followers remain active in politics after he leaves the scene...

U.S. Special Operation Forces reportedly have been in Syria since December training groups to conduct guerrilla attacks and assassinations to bring down Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to a leaked Stratfor memo published by WikiLeaks.

Calls for Syria Regime Change Fuel Conflict: Moscow

''The ill-considered demands for regime change, unilateral sanctions designed to cause economic difficulties and social tension in the country, pushing the opposition toward confrontation with the government... and even calls for military intervention - all of these are risky recipes that can only lead to the escalation of the conflict," he said.

Mark Karlin, Truthout: "Marjorie Cohn, a law professor and past president of the National Lawyer s Guild, has assembled a compelling interdisciplinary anthology on the 'normalization' of torture as an extension of American foreign policy.

Mobilizing Military Moms Against NATO

Sarah Lazare, Truthout: ''The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are marked by widespread mental health problems among US service members, with nearly one in five Iraq and Afghanistan veterans reporting symptoms of PTSD or severe depression. The Army s own studies show an alarming spike in Army suicides which have soared past civilian rates These grim statistics continue to climb: 2011 saw the highest number of Army suicides in military history, with 164 soldiers reported to have taken their lives. This coincides with a 2011 spike in violent sexual assaults perpetrated by active duty soldiers, mostly targeting young active duty female soldiers.''

The political, economic and social distress that is destroying national sovereignty and eliminating social cultures for a worldwide-integrated technocratic paradigm is the very definition of hell on earth. Utopians have always made their ambitions known, but in the case of this NWO model of global gulag, the means to enslave all cultures and economies is rapidly advancing under the framework of the interdependence doctrine...
