NYC: Subway shooters to set their sights on underground camera ban
Mike Epstein is not a terrorist, but if a proposed ban on photography on New York trains and buses goes into effect, he might very well find himself treated like one - a group of photographers plan to gather at the main information kiosk in Grand Central station this Sunday, June 6, at 1 p.m. They'll fan out across several train lines, shooting photos throughout the system in a peaceful demonstration - regulation 21 NYCRR 1050.9c are stiffer penalties for hopping turnstiles, walking between cars, and using seats as footrests

Report: Illegal entrants cost state $1.3 billion a year
Illegal immigration costs Arizonans $1.3 billion a year, nearly 20 times more than it did just a decade ago, according to a report by an immigration reform group.

If Americans collectively import more goods and services from foreigners than we export, we are said to have a trade deficit. Paying for the things we import accounts for most of the flow of dollars out of the United States. However, money flows out of the country for other reasons as well. The U.S. government provides foreign aid and supports overseas military bases; immigrants to the United States send dollars back to their families; foreigners who own U.S. businesses or financial assets take income out of the country.
When these factors are added to the trade deficit, the net outflow of dollars is called the current account deficit. In 2002, the U.S. trade deficit amounted to $418 billion, and the current account deficit totaled $480 billion. Data for 2003 is not yet available, but preliminary reports indicate the current account deficit will be at least $550 billion.

Where are the Carriers? Fleet Response Plan
During the summer of 2004 the Navy will surge some aircraft carriers from their homeports … to generate as many as seven of 12 carriers on station … for Coalition operations. The ability to push that kind of military capability to the four corners of the world is quite remarkable and recent. Several years ago, the Navy could deploy only two.

Gore Lashes Out Again at Bush Administration

BILDERBERG - SECRET WORLD GOVERNMENT
The annual Bilderberg Group conference is literally the most important meeting in the world. It is attended annually by more world leaders, more top politicians, more royalty, and business leaders, than any other gathering of any kind anywhere. The G8 summit and World Economic Forums are mere side-shows by comparison. No other meeting is attended by the leaders of all the major international institutions, such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations, and the European Union.

The Booming Defense Business
It's not every day that the chief executive of a major defense contractor steps down because of ethical wrongdoing on his watch, as Boeing CEO Phil Condit did Dec. 1. But let's be clear about one thing: This mounting scandal, which centers on whether Boeing improperly offered Pentagon procurement official Darleen Druyun a job while she was negotiating the terms of a $20-billion deal to lease 747s from the company, goes well beyond a few misguided executives at one corporation

Would You Mind?
This week's edition of The Economist asks an important question: Why are we spending so much time worrying about cloning and genetics, and so little time worrying about neuroscience, when the latter poses at least as much of a threat? And The Economist is right: cloning might produce a duplicate of Big Brother, but neuroscience might make us love Big Brother. And sooner than we think.
We can't really read minds yet. But new technologies in brain scanning promise far more effective lie detection, unlike the clumsy and ineffective polygraphs that law enforcement has used (largely as a tool of psychological manipulation, since they really don't work) for years. But what if they did? The ramifications of an effective lie detector are considerable. One that was really 100% effective, or something close to it, would have dramatic effects on the criminal trial process. Innocents would be freed, as the "unbelievable" alibis turned out to be true (they are, sometimes).

And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse."

September 11 Widow Is "Sick" For Suing The Government, According To The American Psychiatric Association
I listened to an interview with 9-11 widow Ellen Mariani on Friday's Democracy Now! radio/television program. Mariani is suing the Bush Administration over its failure to prevent the plain highjackings and crashings of September 11. What piqued my interest most was Mariani's reference to the campaign to convince people to start taking psychiatric drugs to cope with their grief after September 11. After she was asked by show co-host Juan Gonzalez about how she and other 9-11 families are coping with it, Mariani replied, "They feel devastated. They want answers. I want answers. A lot of them have confessed to me, and I don't condemn it...they're on medication. They've been on it for a long time since 9-11. I want to tell your people I am of sound mind. I would not take any medication. I was tricked into trying to be medicated and no thank you. I wanted to take this on head on in respect of my husband and all those precious young people who died in the buildings and all those other victims from 80 other countries, my sympathy goes for them."

FORMER MARYLAND STATE SENATOR SOUNDS ALARM ON US DOLLAR
Former Maryland State Senator Tim Ferguson is warning "the Federal Reserve is planning to destroy the U.S. economy by printing the U.S. dollar in exponentially riskier quantities until it blows off the charts and crashes, and by easing credit and rates until the average individual and corporate debt loads are so enormous that the resulting massive distortions in the economy suddenly bring on an economic heart attack, leaving no possibility of a short or even medium-term recovery."

Pakistan's forgotten al-Qaeda nuclear link
A recent analysis by US nuclear experts David Albright and Holly Higgins found strong evidence that Pakistani nuclear scientists Sultan Mahmood and Abdul Majid "provided significant assistance to al-Qaeda's efforts to make radiation dispersal devices". Therein lies the most overlooked Pakistani threat - the knowledge in the heads of nuclear experts sympathetic to the jihad movement, and jihadi groups with weapons-of-mass-destruction ambitions such as LeT operating secure facilities and training camps in Pakistan with only the most minimal of restraints.

Cops intercept innocent text message
A stunned punk rock fan was quizzed by police earlier after an innocent text message containing lyrics to a song by The Clash was intercepted by anti-terror police.

The lyrics in question from a song called Tommy Gun were: "How about this for Tommy Gun? OK - SO LET'S AGREE ABOUT THE PRICE AND MAKE IT ONE JET AIRLINER FOR TEN PRISONERS."

The man who plays in a Clash tribute band was said to be "bricking it".

The police accepted the man's explanation and eventually let him go, but this proves that GHCQ are actively monitoring all vocal and textual mobile phone traffic and nobody is safe.

The president's real goal in Iraq 

Among the architects of this would-be American Empire are a group of brilliant and powerful people who now hold key positions in the Bush administration: They envision the creation and enforcement of what they call a worldwide "Pax Americana," or American peace. But so far, the American people have not appreciated the true extent of that ambition
  • The official story on Iraq has never made sense. The connection that the Bush administration has tried to draw between Iraq and al-Qaida has always seemed contrived and artificial. In fact, it was hard to believe that smart people in the Bush administration would start a major war based on such flimsy evidence


  • But Iraq is just a stepping stone. Iran is next -- indeed, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the PNAC team say that Iran is "perhaps a far greater threat" to U.S. oil hegemony. Other nations will follow, including Russia and China. In one way or another -- by military means or economic dominance, by conquest, alliance or silent acquiescence -- they must all be brought to heel, forcibly prevented from "challenging our leadership or even aspiring to a larger regional or global role."
  • Not since "Mein Kampf" has a geopolitical punch been so blatantly telegraphed, years ahead of the blow

One of the men was missing an I-94 form from his passport and both did not have work permits, according to an NCIS official


  • Israeli Movers In Sub Base Security Scare Freed
  • The two Israeli men in a moving van who tried to get past security officials at Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base without proper identification last Friday will soon be released


  • The government is behind the expensive surveillance of two men suspected of having links to the Israeli secret service
  • Israeli suspects watched 24/7


  • From the Ranks to the Street
  • Nearly a fourth of the homeless are veterans. Reasons vary, but many fail to adjust to life's randomness after the order of military service


  • Cameras embedded in pavement markings -- used in U.S. for past three years
  • Its latest creation is an embedded stud equipped with a camera that catches speeders, monitors traffic for criminals or stolen cars and even checks for bald tires on the fly

  • In a Road That's All Eyes, the Driver Finds an Ally


  • Recent reports show that the dust from the World Trade Center attacks is more toxic than researchers initially realized—and so is the range of health problems in those exposed to it
  • Now Graham carries a bag full of medications around with him each day. He takes 17 different drugs for ailments ranging from asthma to chronic infections, and sees his doctor so often that he’s had to ask the receptionist to call and remind him of upcoming appointments so he can keep track


  • The choice of Iyad Allawi, closely linked to the CIA and formerly to MI6, as the Prime Minister of Iraq from 30 June will make it difficult for the US and Britain to persuade the rest of the world that he is capable of leading an independent government
  • Exiled Allawi was Responsible for 45-Minute WMD Claim
