From this week's Republican Tax Cuts

���The Washington Post ran an interesting chart this week that
every Democrat should memorize.

��������It shows your annual savings under the latest
Republican tax cut.
��Here are the figures
$10,000-$20,000: $2
$20,000-$30,000: $9
$30,000-$40,000: $16
$40,000-$50,000: $46
$50,000-$75,000: $100
$75,000-$100,000: $403
$100,000-$200,000: $1,388
$200,000-$500,000: $4,499
$500,000-$1 million: $5,562
More than $1 million: $41,977
����According to the U.S. Census Bureau, median income in the
United States is $44,389. Math has never been my biggest skill, but I
know what "median" means: half fall above, half below. I am aware that
the median may not be the best instrument to use here, because a
relatively small number of super-high earners skew the data. But no
matter how you slice this, most people are getting crumbs. As The Post
��������Middle-income households would receive an
average tax cut of $20 from the agreement, according to the joint Urban
Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center, while 0.02 percent of
households with incomes over $1 million would receive average tax cuts
of $42,000.
����������The bottom line is, the Republicans just
offered huge numbers of taxpayers an annual savings of $2 to $46.
Considering that people scoffed at a $100 gas rebate, this should be
more than enough to make their blood boil anew.
������Let's put aside the wisdom of cutting taxes at a time
of record deficits. Let's put aside the question of straddling our
children and grandchildren with more debt. Let's just look at what is
being offered here. Then let's demagogue until the cows come home.
������It's high time for some good old-fashioned class
warfare. The ads write themselves:
������"The Republicans just bought all of their friends a
shiny new car or a fancy fishing boat.
������You got a fast-food meal. Enjoy your nine dollars."

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they
should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of
independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would
include their own government." -- George Washington

On August 14, 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft was called
a "menace to Liberty" by Jonathan Turley, in the Los Angeles Times,
for announcing his desire for camps for U.S. citizens he
deems "enemy combatants."

Under the Justice Department's new definition of "enemy combatant"�
which won the enthusiastic approval of the president and Defense
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld�anyone defined as an "enemy combatant,"
very much including American citizens, can be held indefinitely by
the government, without charges, a hearing, or a lawyer. In short,

On August 8, The Wall Street Journal reported that "the Goose Creek,
South Carolina, facility now has a special wing that could be used
to jail U.S. citizens if the government were to deem them enemy
combatants," a senior administration official said.

The Rex-84 Alpha Explan (Readiness Exercise 1984, Exercise Plan)
showed that FEMA leads 34 other federal agencies, including CIA,
FBI, and U.S. Treasury, in a massive civil readiness exercise.
In 1983, at the annual meeting of the Academy of Criminal Justice
Sciences, FEMA's General Frank S. Salcedo recommended expanding
FEMA's power even further. As he saw it at least 100,000 U.S.
citizens, from survivalists to tax protesters, were serious threats
to civil security.

It was announced recently that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown
and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland
Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the
event of a national emergency.

In 2002, FEMA sought bids from major real estate and engineering
firms to construct giant internment facilities in the case of a
chemical, biological or nuclear attack or a natural disaster.

Okanogan County Commissioner Dave Schulz went public three years ago
with his contention that his county was home of a modern day
internment camp.

When Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) read a story widely circulated in
the U.S. press in 2003 entitled "Foundations Are in Place for
Martial Law in the United States," he became so alarmed that he gave

The 1878 Posse Comitatus Act, passed in response to abuses by
federal troops in the South after the Civil War, prohibits the use
of the military "to execute the laws" of the U.S. That's been widely
interpreted as a ban on searching, arresting or spying on U.S.
civilians by federal troops.

State Emergency Health Powers Act
WASHINGTON -- In the event of a bio-terrorist attack using a deadly

want to be able to close roads and airports and, if necessary,

To make that possible, 50 governors are to receive copies of a

Reacting to today's news that the NSA is "amassing information about
ordinary Americans," Reps. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) and Rep. Zoe

Subject: US could access EU data retention information

Bilateral agreements on US access to member states' information on phone calls and emails are already in place (Photo: European Commission)

US could access EU data retention information

12.05.2006 - 09:50 CET | By Helena Spongenberg

US authorities can get access to EU citizens' data on phone calls, sms' and emails, giving a recent EU data-retention law much wider-reaching consequences than first expected, reports Swedish daily Sydsvenskan.

The EU data retention bill, passed in February after much controversy and with implementation tabled for late 2007, obliges telephone operators and internet service providers to store information on who called who and who emailed who for at least six months, aimed at fighting terrorism and organised crime.

A week later on 2-3 March, EU and US representatives met in Vienna for an informal high level meeting on freedom, security and justice where the US expressed interest in the future storage of information.

The US delegation to the meeting "indicated that it was considering approaching each [EU] member state to ensure that the data collected on the basis of the recently adopted Directive on data retention be accessible to them," according to the notes of the meeting.

Representatives from the Austrian EU presidency and from the European Commission said that these data were "accessible like any other data on the basis of the existing ... agreements" the notes said.

The EU representatives added that the commission would convene an expert meeting on the issue.

Under current agreements, if the FBI, for example, is interested in a group of EU citizens from a member state who are involved in an investigation, the bureau can ask for help with a prosecutor in that member state.

The national prosecutor then requests telephone operators and internet service providers for information, which is then passed on to the FBI.

This procedure opens the way for US authorities to get access under the EU data-retention law, according to the Swedish newspaper.

In the US itself meanwhile, fury has broken out in the US congress after reports revealed that the Bush administration covertly collected domestic phone records of tens of millions of US citizens since the attacks in New York on 11 September 2001.

President George Bush did not deny the allegations in a television statement last night, but insisted that his administration had not broken any laws.

Cryptome offers a free DVD of 33 minutes (WMV, 500MB) of the hour-long session on NSA surveillance at the New York Public Library, May 8, 2006:

Recent revelations about a warrantless surveillance program administered by the National Security Agency raise troubling questions about the legality and efficacy of eavesdropping inside the United States, and the politics of secrecy and disclosure in an age of terrorism. Join James Risen, who just received a Pulitzer Prize for his New York Times scoop on secret domestic eavesdropping, and wrote State of War: The Secret History of the C.I.A. and the Bush Administration; Admiral Bob Inman, former Director of the NSA; and Patrick Radden Keefe, author of Chatter: Dispatches from the Secret World of Global Eavesdropping, for a candid, in-depth discussion of the high-tech side of American espionage, and the challenge of balancing an aggressive pursuit of terrorist cells inside America's borders with statutory and constitutional protections of privacy and civil liberties. The conversation will be moderated by Jeffrey Rosen, the legal affairs editor of The New Republic, a frequent contributor to NPR, and author of The Unwanted Gaze: The Destruction of Privacy in America and his just published The Most Democratic Branch: How the Courts Serve America.

Email requests to with mail address. The video is composed of a eight raw clips with rough audio, like spy chatter. It would be great for this to be hosted online; if done, send a URL. It will be added to the Cryptome DVD coming out on 10th Anniversary June 1, 2006.
