ACORN Reported False Prostitution Claim to Police

The trumped up destruction of ACORN has been a huge victory for the anti-democracy right- wing activists who certainly don't want poor people or minorities to be registered or vote. It turns out the ACORN staffer supposedly caught on tape helping a pipmp and a protitute informed police immediately after the staged incident, further discrediting the wingnut hit team responsible and once again demonstrating why anything put forth by GOP and the wingnutti should should be viewed with extreme caution and suspicion until vetted. From a recent Democracy Now! report:

Bushite War Criminals

Senior officials in the Bush administration, including Rummy, the Dickster and Georgieboy knew that innocent men were among those improsoned and tortured at Gitmo:

Koch Kash for Klimatescam Climategate Scientists Cleared

From yesterday's Democracy Now! news you can rely on:

Report: Global Warming Skeptics Bankrolled by Koch Industries

A new report from Greenpeace has identified a privately owned US company with ties to the oil and chemical industry as the paymaster of global warming skeptics in the United States and Europe. According to Greenpeace, Koch Industries has spent nearly $48 million since 1997 to fund groups that question global warming.

UK Panel Clears “Climategate” Scientists

In related news, a British parliamentary panel has looked into the so-called “Climategate” controversy and found no evidence to support the charge that a prominent British research center misrepresented data related to global warming. Last year hackers broke into the computer system of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit and then released emails from the center’s top scientists. Deniers of global warming had claimed the stolen emails provided evidence of an effort to silence academics who have questioned or downplayed human-driven climate change.
