Secret REAL ID talks still ongoing

< >
< >

 UPDATE: Negotiations are still ongoing, with REAL ID being crafted by only a handful of Capitol Hill staffers. Here are some more numbers and names to phone and fax to express your opposition to the tri-national ID cards throught the "Drivers License Agreement" (DLA) provision in REAL ID. Demand that Sec. 203 mandating linked databases and the DLA be dropped. Demand provision 202(c)1(C) requiring Social Security Number for driver's be struck. Demand Homeland Security have no authority to unilaterally require biometric identifiers on drivers' licenses.

Our intelligence network reports that GOP legislators are also being locked out of the REAL ID negotiations in the conference committee on the defense spending supplemental bill. Minority Leader Sen. Reid has previously reported that Dems are locked out of REAL ID talks.

Here are the best numbers call to express outrage:

a.. Majority Leader Frist's office at 202-224-3344 

a.. Conference Chair Sen. Cochran at 202-224-5054 

a.. Senate Appropriations - Press: 202 224-6404 & Homeland: 202-224-9612

Ask why the negotiations are being done in secret for the NAFTA tri-national ID card via the "Drivers License Agreement" clause. 

REAL ID is on this bill as a result of legislative negotiations made during the 9/11 Commission's Intelligence Reform Bill.

House Approves Broad Energy Bill
	 Following Bush's appeal, Congress is buckling under on the Energy Bill. This bill is a real stinker. It lead to wholesale environmental destruction and further profits for major energy corporations. What we need is a bill that will promote decentralization, diversification and powering down.

Meanwhile, Condi has Venezuela very much on her mind. Her displeasure over Russian arms sales to Venezuela make it clear that the Bush administration is maneuvering to declare Venezuela a terrorist nation. - DAP

The Seductive Little Steps to Hell
 A number of factors are conspiring to erode our rights and freedoms, so hard won in the last few decades in America. If they were all starkly evil they would be easier to fight. Unfortunately, many of them are so seemingly innocuous that we will be back in the 1940s before we know what hit us.

#  Sat. May 7th, 11:30AM C-SPAN2 The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions
David Ray Griffin takes a critical look at the official 9/11 Commission Report. Professor Griffin argues that "omissions and distortions" in the report amount to a cover-up by government officials and says that the available evidence suggests that the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks. Professor Griffin covers topics he says have been either inadequately answered by the commission. These include questions surrounding the attack on the Pentagon, the way in which the World Trade Center towers collapsed, and the behavior of President Bush and his Secret Service detail following notification that a second plane had hit the WTC. The talk was hosted by the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth  and took place at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Includes Q&A

# 911 ALERT!

As we all know, we’re engaged in an information war, and most of our problems could be solved if Americans would only wake up to the true state of affairs in this nation, and somehow be removed from the fog of deceit they’ve been buried in by the mainstream media.

 The best opportunity we’ll ever have to accomplish this will be on Saturday, May 7, at 2:30 PM (EST), when c-span2 will rebroadcast David Ray Griffin’s lecture "9-11 and the American Empire." Most of you saw it a few days ago, and the TV-free watched it on the web, but in the few days before its rebroadcast on c-span, we have enough time to tell everyone we know to watch it, tape it, and spread the word.

 This is our chance to save this nation, and it’s very likely to be the only one like it we’ll ever have. Let’s not blow it. We would be fools to let this slip by us. This is by far the most important program that’s ever been on television, and we all need to do whatever we can to make sure every TV in America is tuned to it.

 Dr. Griffin’s lecture lays out the proof of U.S. government complicity in the 9-11 attacks in a clear, and rational explanation that will convince any who are now skeptical of 9-11 truth, or still believe our government’s lies. It exposes the "war on terror" for what it is, and has the power to bring it to a sudden end. This lecture will move 9-11 truth from realm of "conspiracy theories" and into the history books as proven fact. Dr. Griffin, his lecture, and its broadcast on c-span restores the 9-11 Truth Movement’s credibility, which has been under constant attack, and doesn’t even exist in the eyes of many. This lecture will force millions to see the light.

 I implore you now to seize the moment, and over the next couple of days, tell as many people as you can to watch, tape, and distribute this lecture. Nothing less then the future of this nation depends on what you do now. Every American has a patriotic duty to help save this nation, as well as a moral duty to humanity, and our planet. If you ignore this request, you’ll share the blame for the needless deaths of millions, and if you do nothing to stop them, you’re no better than the murderous fascist bastards now occupying the White House. Your silence gives your consent to all they do. The time to act is now. Whatever it is that you’re presently engaged in cannot be half as important as this, so please stop what you’re doing, and spend the time between now, and 2:30 PM, Saturday, telling everyone you can to watch, and tape this lecture. Forward this to every e-mail address you have, call everyone else on the phone, and then knock on your neighbors’ doors. After you’ve told your  family, friends and neighbors, tell it to your enemies and to total strangers. Please make sure you get as many people as you can to watch this show. I think you know that I don’t exaggerate by saying this is a national emergency. If only everyone knew the truth, we could all be saved. – Jolly Roger

Saturday, May 7, at 2:30 PM(EST) on C-Span2. The show is called "Book TV"

 Our government has a life of hell planned for all of us. 9-11 truth can stop it. If you don’t do all you can to make sure all of America sees this lecture, you’ll share the blame for abandoning your country in its time of need, as well as the deaths of millions of innocent people. After I send this letter to everyone I can, I’ll be gone for much of the next couple days. I have a lot to do. If you’ve "unsubscribed" from my mailing list, I’m sorry, but you’ve just been re-subscribed. Forward this to everyone you can. – JR

Saturday, May 7, at 2:30 PM(EST) on C-Span2

 Here is the announcement directly from C_span's website: 


Do not use webfairy otherwise. She has spread much disinfo.

#  Sat May 7, 5-8 PM  Celebrating National Masturbation Month at the Parkway Theatre -- There are many reasons to masturbate, but probably none as important as pleasure -- so to welcome this year's National Masturbation Month, we're going to celebrate orgasm with Good Vibrations Founder Emerita Joani Blank and her unique movie Orgasm! The Faces of Ecstasy. Joani and her colleagues from Libido Video interviewed twenty-two Bay Area residents (male, female, and trans, aged 22 to 68) and then asked them to have orgasms for the cameras. Shot only from the shoulders up, the resulting movie is an intensely intimate yet non-explicit exploration of human sexual response, and you've never heard anything as thought-provoking as their interviews. (Note for masturbation purists: a few orgasms in this video result from partner sex.) Joani Blank will be on hand to talk about making Orgasm! Faces of Ecstasy -- and she'll bring some of the movie's stars to talk about their experience getting intimate with the camera. Hosted by Dr. Carol Queen (who is one of the performers in Orgasm!), and co-sponsored by Good Vibrations and The Center for Sex & Culture. Parkway Theatre, 1834 Park Blvd., Oakland -- directions: ADMISSION: $8.00, 21 and over only please

# As many of you know, Mother’s Day was proclaimed by Julia Ward Howe in 1870 as a call for women to promote “the great and general interests of peace”.  I’ve copied her proclamation at the end of this email. 

 This Mother’s Day— Sunday May 8 --we are responding to her call for a “General Congress of Women”  with an event at the state capitol in Sacramento.      I hope that you will be there to reclaim this day and share your thoughts about how we can move forward toward Peace.

SUN MAY 8, 2005 4:00 P.M. Call for a GENERAL CONGRESS of WOMEN

 We continue to honor the origins of Mother’s Day as we gather in front of the Vietnam War Memorial on the capitol grounds in Sacramento Sunday May 8th to declare “All we want for Mother’s Day is the troops home from Iraq NOW”. We know that all too soon there will be yet another war memorial – we need to make this our very final one!

 We’re calling on mothers, daughters, grandmothers to join CODEPINK: Women for Peace, Gold Star Families for Peace, Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors, Mother Speak, and other groups and individuals as we embrace Julia Ward Howe’s direction to first “bewail & commemorate the dead” and then call for a “General Congress of Women without limit of nationality” to promote the “great & general interests of peace”.

Start: 4:00 p.m. at Vietnam War Memorial, Capitol Grounds, Sacramento State Capitol

Finish: 6:00p.m. with Circles for Peace

 We ask women to bring our ideas for future actions for peace and to end war - such as the call to return our National Guard - and share with each other as we continue to build a strong, active women’s movement for peace & justice.


Julia Ward Howe's Mother's Day Proclamation - 1870
Arise then...women of this day!
 Arise, all women who have hearts!
 Whether your baptism be of water or of tears!
 Say firmly:
 "We will not have questions answered by irrelevant agencies,
 Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage,
 For caresses and applause.
 Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
 All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
 We, the women of one country,
 Will be too tender of those of another country
 To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."

From the voice of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with
 Our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm!
 The sword of murder is not the balance of justice."
 Blood does not wipe our dishonor,
 Nor violence indicate possession.
 As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil
 At the summons of war,
 Let women now leave all that may be left of home
 For a great and earnest day of counsel.
 Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
 Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means
 Whereby the great human family can live in peace...
 Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,
 But of God -
 In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
 That a general congress of women without limit of nationality,
 May be appointed and held at someplace deemed most convenient
 And the earliest period consistent with its objects,
 To promote the alliance of the different nationalities,
 The amicable settlement of international questions,
 The great and general interests of peace.

# NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR GI RESISTERS TUES MAY 10, 12 NOON SUPPORT NAVY REFUSER PABLO PAREDES & ARMY OBJECTOR KEVIN BENDERMAN On the day before their scheduled court martial for refusing to participate in the Iraq war and occupation San Francisco Bay Area Support Rally War Memorial Veterans Building, SF 401 Van Ness, between Hayes and McAllister, SF This event sponsored by 

 LEAVE: Tuesday May 10, 1pm after the SF Support Rally
 RETURN: Thurs. Night, May 12  (for caravan only)510 484-7127

#  Please circulate this call to action widely:


SUPPORT NAVY REFUSER PABLO PAREDES & ARMY OBJECTOR KEVIN BENDERMAN On the day before their scheduled court martial for refusing to participate in the Iraq war and occupation, tell the U.S. military:


San Francisco Bay Area Support Rally TUES MAY 10, 12 NOON War Memorial Veterans Building in SF 401 Van Ness, between Hayes and McAllister, San Francisco (2 blocks from Civic Center BART)

After refusing to honor their conscientious objection, the U.S. military will bring Pablo Paredes (in San Diego, California) and Kevin Benderman (in Fort Stewart, Georgia) before a military court martial tribunal on May 11, 2005. They face military jail, and forfeiture of pay and benefits.

On December 6, 2004, Navy Petty Officer Pablo Paredes refused to board his Navy ship and participate in the Iraq war and occupation.

On January 5, 2005, Kevin Benderman refused to deploy for a second tour of duty in Iraq with the Army's Third Infantry Division. At the same time seventeen other soldiers from his unit went AWOL, two tried to kill themselves and one had a relative shoot him in the leg to avoid deploying.

At the time of his refusal, Pablo said he hoped his protest might inspire other GI's to refuse to take part in the war. Thousands of U.S. troops are refusing to fight the war and occupation in Iraq. We are committed to asserting widespread public pressure in defense of GI's choice to follow their conscience instead of the dictates of the State. We believe this is a key way to help end the tragic war and occupation of Iraq. Please join us and do what you can on this National Day of Action for GI Resisters; organize a public support event, pass this e-mail on to your friends, family and associates, send letters of support (websites below), etc. Please send us a note letting us know of what you have planned:

COURAGE TO RESIST is a new group of concerned community members, veterans and military families organizing support for military objectors to illegal war and occupation and underlying policies of empire. We have adopted a people power strategy to weaken the pillars that support the Iraq war and occupation by supporting GI resistance, which together with counter-recruitment and draft resistance work can remove the supply of obedient troops.

More info on Pablo: Kevin and Monica Benderman will be speaking in San Francisco on Saturday, April 30, 2005, 2:00-4:00 PM


# Soil & Separation:    A  Bedouin and Jewish Story
Tuesday May 10th, 6:00 PM Reception, 6:30 PM Presentation
Reservations are not needed and will not be taken
Pacific Energy Center, 851 Howard St., SF (btwn 4th and 5th, Powell St BART)

A presentation by BUSTAN,  a partnership of Jewish and Arab
eco-builders, architects, academics, and farmers promoting social and
environmental justice in Israel/Palestine. BUSTAN cultivates sustainable
models to effect change by combining advocacy and in-depth political
analysis with strategic action. BUSTAN utilizes the principles of
permaculture and nonviolent direct action across ethnic divides. BUSTAN
speakers will discuss "Development" and the impact of "Making the Desert
Bloom" in the context of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

BUSTAN speakers will discuss "Development" and the impact of "Making the
Desert Bloom" in the context of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The Negev, the southern region of Israel populated by Bedouin and Jews, is
plagued by divisions. There is a fierce demographic war with Jewish settlers
relocating to the area, a public health crisis from rampant industrial
expansion, and disproportionately high rates of unemployment, crime, and
drug abuse. Beyond camels, coffee, and carpets, Israel's exoticized Bedouin
minority has been divided by geopolitics and tribalism, and is striving to
withstand the forceful currents of urbanization and modernization. Under the
auspices of development, state-land use, stringent planning and zoning, and
selective resource allocation,

Jewish and Arab presenters include DEVORAH BROUS, founder and director of
Bustan. Devorah has spent the past 12 years organizing projects in Israel
and the Occupied Palestinian Territories to struggle against the Occupation,
and to promote fair allocation of public resources. Devorah holds masters
degrees in Israel Studies and Peace/Conflict Studies, with a concentration
in conflict management. Most recently, Devorah designed and orchestrated the
Medwed Project, a program which culminated in the construction of a
solar-powered, straw-bale medical clinic in the "unrecognized" Bedouin
village, Wadi el Na'am, to serve its 5,500 citizens.  Devorah has authored
numerous articles and poems about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and
performs spoken word.  Devorah resides in Jerusalem.

For over a decade, DR. SALMAN ELBEDOUR has been researching, speaking,
writing, and teaching about the Bedouin educational system in Israel as well
as the psychological impact of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Israeli,
Palestinian, and Bedouin youth. Dr. Elbedour serves as the coordinator of
the Urban School Psychology program at Howard University, School of
Education, Washington, DC. He has taught graduate and undergraduate courses
for seven years at Ben Gurion University (in the Negev) and Bir Zeit
University (West-Bank). Elbedour has published extensively on social,
political, health and identity issues related to Bedouin of the Negev and
Palestinian communities.

In 1973, DR. KHALIL ABU RABIA founded the Arab List for Bedouin and
Villagers, a Knesset faction that is currently part of the United Arab List.
Abu Rabia has been at the forefront of the Bedouin rights movement for 35
years working with the Forum for National Consensus, Peace Now, and Gush
Shalom. Abu Rabia has a Ph.D. in Islamic Law and is currently a lecturer and
researcher on subjects including Bedouin Muslim Law, the Relationship
Between Traditional Islamic law and Secular State law, and Spiritual Aspects
of Bedouin Land Rights. Khalil is a professor of Middle East Studies at Ben
Gurion University and Sapir College, a researcher at the Chaim Herzog
Center, and resides in Beer Sheva.

We think that there can be two kinds of debates in the morning. First a debate that should be introduced by someone involved in the issue debated, as a way to initiate the meeting. After a short break, a more general meeting to share ideas and experiences related to the issue that has been debated before. In the afternoon we should gather together to share and know experiences that are working already. Later, the practical workshops. May 14th:Morning: welcome and the first meeting to organize the programme or activities. Afternoon: debating the development policy. Hold by someone from the Itoiz or another big infrastructure. Practical workshops. May 15th:Morning: debating the action and the ways to act it. Hold by someone from the struggle against OMG. Afternoon: International relations. The introduction will be in charge to someone involved in supporting the Papua people or the Mapuches. Practical workshops. May 16th:Morning: the possibility of making an international ant civilization web. Afternoon: General meeting to exchange and share. Starting the farewell. And performance neo-luddite. We have already set up some of the practical workshops: making soap, cryptography without computers, applied botanic knowledge, mankala, organic agriculture, energetic crisis, actual applications to spearthrower. Vegetarian food, with a vegan option will be prepared, and we are going to need help for making it. You need to bring plate and fork. And because we are going to camp, you need to bring your tent and sleeping bag. The night time will be for personal relations and fun. MORE INFO WRITE TO

#   BURNING RIVER – June 25 & 26
 Saturday & Sunday, 2 hours north of the Bay Area on the Upper Cache River
 Can you imagine 100+ Burners on a fabulous, hot, sunny day on the river?  We can dress in crazy attire, have water battles (Super Soakers are a must), chill out on the beaches and just enjoy being in a wet, tree-lined environment with amazing scenery right before our eyes.  Once you are on the river, there is nothing to do but have fun and relax.  All meals are taken care of and all gear is sent ahead.  The most you have to worry about is loosing your paddle and having to swim.
 At night, we can put on the Bling!Bling!, light up our e-poi/e-staffs while dazzling the natives by the river's edge.  With a little coordination, we could set up our own cozy village with a community bar among the trees and deeply connect with one another.
 If we get enough interest, we may be able to take over one campsite for ourselves (run the music, stay up all night, etc.) and have leverage to book a campground on the way for the preceding Friday night stay or perhaps negotiate discount rooms at the local casino for Friday night.  Stay tuned for these opportunities…
 This is an all-inclusive, family-oriented (12 yrs +/min. 65 lbs.) event so we encourage you to bring the whole Burner family and to post this announcement out to other Burner communities.  The company running it has Burners on the payroll but the guests will be a mix of Burners and non-Burners – our goal is to make it mostly Burners! 
 The scheduled trip includes 2 days of volcanic river canyon rafting (rated class 3 but is mostly class 2) in either a 2 person 'ducky' or a 4 persons raft.  The $139 pp fee includes all on-river meals and evening entertainment, life jacket, camping fees, parking, raft rental, paddles and shuttle service.  There will be some free tickets for those in our community who cannot afford this adventure but passionately want to attend.
 2 hours north of the Bay Area on the Upper Cache River.   See you on the river! Glimmer
