Police clash with protesters at G8

Excerpt
Protesters converge on G-8 Summit in GermanyHEILIGENDAMM, Germany (Reuters) – Around 10,000 anti-capitalist protesters clashed with police on Wednesday, injuring eight, as they tried to blockade routes to a summit of major powers in northern Germany.

Police used water cannons to push back demonstrators. Delegates from several G8 countries said the protests were limiting their ability to move around at the summit venue, a seaside resort on Germany’s Baltic coast.

Protesters were trying to block access to a luxury hotel on the coast in Heiligendamm where G8 leaders including U.S. President George W. Bush were gathering…..

By late afternoon, all three roads leading into Heiligendamm were blocked off by protesters and police in full riot gear wielding transparent shields lined the entrance to the town.

German NDR public radio said the only way into Heiligendamm was via boat or helicopter.

“We’re stuck here now. The whole place looks shut down,” an official from one of the delegations said by telephone from inside the summit venue.

SECURITY FENCE

Some 16,000 security personnel are in the area. World leaders are shielded from thousands of demonstrators by a 12-km (7.5-mile) fence topped with barbed wire.

Behrens said roughly 10,000 demonstrators were violating a ban on demonstrations in the area and risked being detained.

HL’s Take
I love the way AP slants this story “Around 10,000 anti-capitalist protesters,” Yes I’m sure these people are all anti-capitalists, they are demanding the world turn to communism now. What a joke. How about “Anti-facist protesters” and about that 10,000 number, you can be sure that the number is at least double that. The media loves to downplay peoples protests. Like that time in 2004 in New York at the convention when between 400,000 and 500,000 people came to the convention to protest Bush. The media reported it as “Thousands” Take a look at the pic, looks like a lot of people to me.


Wide Disparity in Two Seperate Democratic Nomination Polls

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on June 6th, 2007 9:56 am by HL

2 New Polls Released

USA Election Polls
Excerpt
Two polls were released today. A national poll by USA Today and a democratic poll of New Hampshire residents in the aftermath of the Democratic debate. Clinton is trouncing the other candidates in New Hampshire but Obama-Clinton in a statistical tie in the latest USA Today nation poll.

HL’s Take
There is a wide disparity in the two polls between who is winning amongst the Democrats, how can that be. Could it be that one is being conducted by a college, and the other one is being conducted by a Large corporate owned conglomerate that might have a stake in who is nominated? Click through and check the poll results and see what you think


Latest Iraq News

U.S. doubles air attacks in Iraq

White Rock Reviewer
Excerpt
BAGHDAD – Four years into the war that opened with “shock and awe,” U.S. warplanes have again stepped up attacks in Iraq , dropping bombs at more than twice the rate of a year ago.

It also reflects increased availability of planes from U.S. aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf. And it appears to be accompanied by a rise in Iraqi civilian casualties. ….

The rate of such reported civilian deaths appeared to climb steadily through 2006, the group reports, averaging just a few a month in early 2006, hitting some 40 a month by year‘s end, and averaging more than 50 a month so far this year.

The U.S. military itself says it doesn‘t track civilian casualties.

Number of Iraqi displaced tops 4.2 million; shanty towns mushroom

Reuters
Excerpt
GENEVA, June 5 (UNHCR) – The situation in Iraq continues to worsen, with more than 2 million Iraqis now believed to be displaced inside the country and another 2.2 million sheltering in neighbouring states. Calls for increased international support for governments in the region have so far brought few results, and access to social services for Iraqis remains limited. Most of the burden is being carried by Jordan and Syria.

Inside Iraq, some 85 percent of the displaced are in the central and southern regions. Most of those displaced are from Baghdad and surrounding districts. Since February last year, an estimated 820,000 people have been displaced, including 15,000 Palestinians who have nowhere to go….
The number of Iraqis fleeing to neighbouring countries remains high. According to government figures, some 1.4 million Iraqis are now displaced in Syria, up to 750,000 in Jordan, 80,000 in Egypt and some 200,000 in the Gulf region. Syria alone receives a minimum of 30,000 Iraqis a month.

Pagonis noted that recognition rates of Iraqis in various countries outside the region, particularly in Europe, remained low. “UNHCR repeats its call for all borders to remain open to those in need of protection,” she said.

HL’s Take
Gee I wonder why all those “Islamofacists” hate us, why do they want to cause trouble for us? They must hate us for our freedom. It couldn’t have anything to do with the way we ruin their lives so that George W. Bush, and his oily friends can steal all of their resources could it? Nahh.


Fox News Upset at Being Called on Excessive Coverage of Anna Nicole Smith

Fox’s John Gibson Attacks The ‘Great Left-Wing Slime Machine

Think Progress.org
Excerpt
Yesterday, ThinkProgress noted that Fox News host John Gibson had accused reporters of “news-guy snobbery” for covering the Iraq war instead of Anna Nicole Smith. Mocking CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Gibson said, “Oh, ‘There’s a war on! There’s a war on!’ Maybe, just maybe, people are a little weary, Mr. Cooper, of your war coverage, and they’d like a little something else.”

Today, Gibson responded, claiming he had been the victim of a “purposeful and malicious misinterpretation” by the “great left-wing slime machine called ThinkProgress.org.” But Gibson’s monologue only confirmed what we had reported. He repeated again today that reporters who downplay Anna Nicole coverage in favor of Iraq have a “snobby attitude.”

Watch it:

HL’s Take
When the war first started all Fox News could talk about was the war, and how great it was, and how great Bush was, and the righteousness of it all, and how they would great us with flowers. As time went by and the war turned into the biggest F**k Up ever, Fox spent less and less time covering it. Suddenly things like Natalee Holloway, the Teenager from Aruba, and Anna Nicole Smith became much more popular with Fox news. When someone calls then on it they get all offended. Check out the story and video.

Ron Paul’s Complete Debate Face Time

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on June 6th, 2007 8:09 am by HL

At last nights Republican debates, Ron Paul got a total of 7 and a half minutes of face time, much less then the other candidates. He also won the debate. CNN had a poll afterward, and Paul ran away with it. Of course those corporate whores at CNN didn’t like that, so what did they do? they pulled the webpage with the results, wiped it off clean, (see the video below)
Here is Ron Paul making sense at the debates.
