Iran crackdown: Riot police have become a constant presence on the streets of the Iranian capital [Ali Nazanin/AFP/Getty Images]

I can only make it thru about a quarter of what is online, sorting thru this and that… but I think it is time, reportedly with 17 dead among the protesters and 8 of the basij troops (not that we know)… it is time for Mousavi to show his face. And, maybe, his wife as well….

What I find is shifting reports, varying from day to day,  one or the other of them is said to be under a form of arrest, and surely much is opaque… but he issues statements on his website… the latest float is that his wife is missing, maybe arrested.

[W]riting on his website, Mr Mousavi said the result of the polls was a “big fraud” and that the security forces had “attacked protesters inhumanely, killed, injured or arrested them”. He continued: “I am willing to show how election criminals have stood by those behind the recent riots and shed peoples’ blood. I will not back down even for a second, even for personal threats or interests.”

There had been reports earlier in the week that Mr Mousavi’s wife, Zahra Rahnavard, had been arrested after posting a message on her husband’s website in which she said the protests must continue despite the authorities imposing regulations that she likened to martial law. There has been no further news about her whereabouts.

The authorities meanwhile continued their policy of cracking down on protest, arresting 70 university professors after they had met Mr Mousavi to discuss setting up a more liberal form of government. Later at least half of them were released, but some remain in custody. Other academics, artists, writers, poets and journalists have all been particularly targeted for harassment and detention. snip

I say, show up. It seems clear the protests, from whatever wellspring they arise, are beyond an election, beyond a vote count, beyond a man. Or his wife. Even as much is, again and still, opaque.

But, show up. I did find his statement days ago about ritual bathing and preparation for martyrdom to be spoon feeding the troops….  Western media surely carried that message aloft, as though it were the bloodied shirt.

It is other blood in the streets.

****

Why?

“These reasons explain why over recent weeks while the Iran elections were happening there has been virtually no coverage in most media of demonstrations numbering in the tens of thousands in Georgia or Peru. It has even been reported in Peru that dozens of persons have been killed during the protests, or “clashes” as they’ve also been labeled (since more than a dozen police have also been killed), more than the reported number killed in Iran.” (thanks Matthew)

Obama Rules: Protecting House of Saud

“Kristen Breitweiser, an advocate for Sept. 11 families, whose husband was killed in the World Trade Center, said in an interview that during a White House meeting in February between President Obama and victims’ families, the president told her that he was willing to make the pages public. But she said she had not heard from the White House since then.” (thanks Olivia)

those protests in Peru sound amazing, and absolutely NO coverage. Our media only celebrate protest when it advances our commercial/military interests.

All other protesters are dirty hippies and should be ignored.

I posted a link about the protests here the other day but can’t find it now. Here’s an update:

Peru’s indigenous people win one round over developers

2009-06-25

LA Times

by Chris Kraul

Reporting from Yurimaguas, Peru – Peruvian tribal leader Luis Pizango says private investment in his part of the Amazon has brought only misery to him and his people.

Deforestation by loggers ruined tribal hunting grounds. An oil spill in the nearby Corrientes River diminished fishing. A 10,000-acre African palm plantation to produce biofuels displaced dozens of families. And a government plan to build a port facility on the Huallaga River to ease trade with Brazil stands to limit his people’s access to the waterway.

The Shawi indigenous people in northeastern Peru have many reasons for bitterness, Pizango, who is apu, or chief, of the group, said last week at a roadblock set up a few miles west of Yurimaguas to protest government policies.

“It’s been a long trajectory of abuse,” Pizango said. “We got tired of it.”

He and others had blocked the main road leading to Peru’s interior with tree stumps and rocks and set up makeshift tents with plastic sheeting along the highway shoulders. The surrounding terrain of Loreto province was a rolling green moonscape that long ago had been clear-cut by loggers.

Then, in a development celebrated as a victory for indigenous groups, Peru’s Congress last week voted to revoke two laws enacted last year to further open the Amazon to mining, oil and timber development. The measures had enraged indigenous groups and led to a bloody confrontation June 5 in Bagua that officials said left 10 civilians and 23 police officers dead, with one officer missing and presumed dead.

etc…

White House Is Drafting Executive Order to Allow Indefinite Detention of Terror Suspects

Wait, I thought Executive Orders weren’t usable, or something, at least not when it comes the civil rights of GLBT people. Oh, I get it … EOs are good for TAKING AWAY civil rights.

9. Madman in the Marketplace - 26 June 2009

I’ve looked at O from both sides now

that title made me laugh.

marisacat - 26 June 2009

good piece:

[A]nd of course, if our career liberals and “progressive” bloggers weren’t enabling Obama’s vagueness on policy detail by defining the left edge of acceptable discourse as a “public option” (or is it “plan”) that doesn’t have any detail either, we might be in “make him do it” mode there, too. As it is, all that whipping for an ill-defined public option will do is set Obama up to claim that something as bogus as a health insurance exchange is the “public” “plan” and who’s to say he’s not wrong?** Although, if you factor out the FAIL, it’s always possible to claim success, much as an sundial might claim success for moving the sun with its shadow. There’s that. And again, Obama’s a very bright man, so you can be sure that this is how he commissioned the kabuki script to be written.

Sweet suffering Jeebus, how is it that we’re even in the position where Krugman has to say “Health reform has to be done right”? That we are…. Well, that shows “audacity” indeed. I’ll grant that. Just not in the form that so many of us, er, hoped for. …

Madman in the Marketplace - 26 June 2009

yup, they keep that Overton Window closed real tight on the left.

10. Madman in the Marketplace - 26 June 2009

This new blog was linked to from Perrin’s place. I found this interesting piece about Peltier:

I had interviewed Peltier several times while producing Sequoyah. The first time I interviewed the legendary civil rights attorney William Kunstler was about Peltier. It was about 6:00 pm on a Tuesday, I trekked down to his office in the basement at 13 Gay Street and sat and waited. He was in court. And there was an elderly Chinese couple also waiting. Kunstler walked in and spoke with the Chinese couple for about twenty minutes and then summoned me. He let his secretary go home and I sat alone with Kunstler in his office, asking him questions about Peltier’s case that he must have answered a million times before without frustration or fatigue. He was a true gentleman.

Before first interviewing Kunstler, there was a Lakota man named Two Elk helping me produce Sequoyah. He had the tape recorder I used and I wanted it back to interview Kunstler. He tried to talk me out of it. I insisted. He brought the recorder back and gave it to me and I never saw or heard from him again. He was afraid of the FBI. Me? I was so naïve back then to any reprisals or surveillance.

I remember once when I wanted to interview Leonard (I realize I’m calling him Leonard now, which is how I used to refer to him) about his artwork. I called the prison official at Leavenworth as you always had to do because prisoners had to call you collect. I had interviewed Leonard a few times before about his case—the political stuff. This was about artwork. Suddenly, the prison official did not want to grant permission. I was perplexed. He thought Leonard would be making money. I assured him that I wasn’t making any money and certainly wasn’t paying Leonard. The official was afraid that because I was publicizing Leonard’s artwork, Leonard would be making money from the sales of his artwork. I told the official I had no control over that. Finally, the official relented and Leonard called. It’s been a long time since I’ve really listened to any of those reports.

Today, while looking up Leonard to prepare for this blog, I saw that he had been moved from Leavenworth to Canaan Federal Penitentiary in Waymart, Pennsylvania where, this January, he was attacked by a gang of youths and beaten severely, put in solitary and his diabetes dietary requirements were not met. It was, to my thinking, obviously a set-up by those who wanted Leonard dead and he was left to die.

Many consider Leonard to be America’s foremost political prisoner in the sense that the conditions under which Leonard was convicted, the allegedly falsified ballistics report that Kunstler referred to and what many believe to be essentially prosecutorial misconduct. Since Butler and Robideaux were found innocent for reasons of self-defense, someone was going to pay for the execution style killings of Coler and Williams, the U.S. Government was determined to make someone pay.

ugh… as I was reading the first part of the post.. I thought, it is interesting they seem disinterested in killing Peltier. And thought of a capital punishment carried out here in Cali two (maybe three) years ago, it was clearly a political kill. Whatever one thinks of the prisoner executed or his crimes or his time since.

Then I read of the transfer. They want to b rid of Peltier. They want revenge.

Madman in the Marketplace - 26 June 2009

and they want it before Obama even thinks about pardoning him or commuting his sentence, not that he would even consider it.

Ob is such a toadie to the Perpetual War Permagov, and yet the rest of the machine think he’s some liberal threat, or at least pretend they do. Must be the excess melanin.

well I think a lot of the verbal gibberish, “socialist” and so on, is just retail politics to keep the so called right base, the less informed non-reading, hidebound, get your info from the local whips, talk radio, FOX and churches base, revved up…

One reason he will be re-elected. he’s a ‘good thing’. So to speak.

marisacat - 26 June 2009

which reminds me, I will be very interested down the line to see his pardons and commutations. I could envision NONE, quite easily. As he morphs to hard core ‘law n order’ black. Black white brown, all the same.

more Republican follies … Naked ex-mayor arrested at campsite

A former mayor found sitting naked and holding a beer at a Rabun County campsite told police he wasn’t the same naked man seen walking around earlier.

Mark Musselwhite, 43, said he was hot and had been in the creek, according to a Georgia Department of Natural Resources incident report. He apparently didn’t think he was doing anything wrong.

Musselwhite, of Gainesville, was arrested last weekend after being confronted by state DNR authorities. He was charged with public indecency.

“He told me he was the ex-mayor of the city Gainesville and he was a very political person,” DNR Ranger Brandon Walls wrote in the report.

Walls and a deputy sheriff went to the campsite Saturday evening after a complaint of a man walking naked in Earls Ford Road, according to the report. Musselwhite appeared to be intoxicated, and several alcoholic beverages were at the campsite, Walls said.

Walls said he had spoken to Musselwhite earlier in the day regarding an ATV the former mayor was driving.

“He looked at us and said hello,” according to the report.

Musselwhite then asked why he was being visited.

“I said the complainant had specifically said his campsite, and the fact that he was still nude made me think it was him,” Walls wrote.

Musselwhite denied that he was the nude man identified in the complaint.

An unidentified female was also at the campsite.

Musselwhite, a Republican, was elected to the City Council in 2000. He served on the council for six years, including as mayor of the town. In 2006, he lost a bid for a state Senate seat.

Musselwhite previously served as deacon of First Baptist Church in Gainesville.

Angry Arab (no embedded link)

Irony

Progressive supporters of Mousavi in Iran keep telling me to ignore the Islamist rhetoric Of Mousavi and his invocation of the teachings of Khomeini and his calls for Allahu Akbar chants. They say that he only does that for political purposes.

Back in 1978-79, the Iranian Communist Party made the same argument about Khomeini–until they were arrested and their leader executed.

is there any stopping the hunger for war? Thirst for enemies? I am guessing NOT.

Top U.S. Commander Warns of Iranian, Hizbullah Influence in Latin America

Iran’s growing influence in Latin America and its ties with Hizbullah and Hamas are a “potential risk” to the region, the newly-appointed head of the U.S. Southern Command, General Douglas Fraser has warned.

Fraser, who on Thursday took charge of U.S. military operations in 31 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean, expressed “real concern” about the Islamic Republic’s links with what he called “extremist organizations” in the region.

“The real concern is not a nation-to-nation interaction, it is the connection that Iran has with extremist organizations like Hamas and Hizbullah and the potential risk that that could bring to this region,” Fraser told journalists in Miami ahead of taking up the post.

Commenting on Iran’s ties to alleged extremist groups in the region, Fraser said: “it is a concern, and it is an issue we will continue to monitor for any increasing activity.” snip

So is it ”potential”? Or is it ”alleged”? Which?

I don’t recall any concern expressed by the US military when the neocon extremists were busy taking the wrecking ball to Latin America.

Not a fan of Charlie Gibson but isn’t this a legitimate question?

GIBSON: But let me ask a basic question, which may sound silly and naive. But we’ve got 46 million people who are uninsured in this country.

OBAMA: Right.

GIBSON: And one of your goals, one of the goals of health care reform is to get those 46 million people insured.

OBAMA: Right.

GIBSON: We only have X number of doctors in the country. If you add 46 million people to the insurance rolls, you can’t get an appointment now, Mr. President. How are you going to get an appointment then, when there’s 46 more million people competing for that doctor’s time?

I ask because there’s a madly hysterical dkos diary about this on the wreck list. It seems logical to me that if more people are covered, there actually will be more demand for doctor visits by people who can’t afford to risk the cost now (?). Maybe not 46 million trying to get into one doctor’s office – as the questioning implies – but… ?

marisacat - 27 June 2009

There is already a shortage of primary care physicians, internists, family physicians.

I assume many “systems” such as they are, would be overwhelmed. There is a ton of pent up, unmet health care needs in the country. Not that people will be getting what they need.

Stand back and watch it crumble.

No rubes here I know, but there is this oft propogandized
notion in the US that the medicine is good….
if only we could figure out how to pay for it.

It’s bunk. Short of radical restructuring of medicine itself, driving out the profiteers within its byzantine hierarchies right down to med schools and licensing boards society will continue to be prescribed the good bleeding. The real truth is this- Half the nurses in this country could be regarded as “physicians” tomorrow with all shingle hanging rights, patient care responsibilities, and ahem , competitive market rewards in this wonderful, (cough, cough) free market system they tout ad nauseum.

There are not enough schools. Clinical residencies are TOO LONG.
The other factor , despite the information age, the medico-industrial-complex obstructsefforts towards slef care: We are so concerned. doncha know _ For example,
Retaining Prescription authority over common remedies is great for billables but “take two and send me a hundred in the morning” is utter bullshit – yes- utter bullshit- with regard to most antibiotics, the juju of overmedication notwithstanding. Baby got an ear infection?
No asthma or allergies? Then pick up the amoxicillin – over the counter…

It’s all about money. And not letting the med/pharma pillar of political payola crumble, alongside the defense, energy, financial and legal tytrantnts who are killing us in concert.

all true… all of it. The limit to what is available OTC is ridiculous.

BooHooHooMan - 27 June 2009

Another way to flip the for profit model on its head:
If for profit schooling and free markets are so wonderful why don’t we see it in medical education? Shouldn’t licensure and accredidation be blind – based on objective testing , standards of care, core competencies etc?
Why shouldn’t there be more competition???

Crickets from the pro market force establishement..

One of the biggest impediments IMO to reform is nursing.
There should be physicians, surgeons and technicians, that’s it.
Do away with the servile culture that nursing is laden with despite the fluff that Phd’s in Nursing promote as some imaginary parity. I’m going to be blunt a PhD in Nursing might as well be a NARD- Not A Real Doctor. I’m rattling this cage for a reason – NOT that I think doctoral level nurses are less qualified to practice medicine or conduct medical research – the majority are and should – with as common credentialing, commensurate pay ,and mobility- which they’ll never get as “profession” given the political and cultural BAGGAGE

Physician, Surgeon or Technician . And shorten the goddamned residencies. Part of the reason it takes so long and the work load is homicidal in training is the rationing of care. Very simply you don’t need to go to school 15 years to sew. Or be in training as long before you see an aneurysym that people die of every day for LACK of access. It’s fucking lunacy.

marisacat - 27 June 2009

yuo tell me… how many nurses who might have gone for a Nurse Practitioner or other advanced courses now go for some version of a MPA Masters in Public Administration… or other management sideline. My biggest stumbling block, or one of them at the last hospital mymother was in before i brought her home.. was the Nurse Manager.

No words…

Nurses at the same hospital also basically saved her life the night we landed there… the floor, the residents and nurses and techs and helpers, ran a triage system, they just flowed to it… so, I’d never knock nurses. ever.

BooHooHooMan - 27 June 2009

The “Nurse Manager”. Gad.
It is a model ultimately incentivized to turf off / cost shift and cut care. It’s a disaster of a model in “the clinical ladder” a lot of head pat jive given to staff. As for numbers moving to the Nurse Manager role, I don’t know how many opt for it but the whole clinical ladder implies implies a continuum, a certain collegiality, and eventual parity that is simply not there professionally nor compensated as such. Systemically.

NP’s are great in practice, with prescription ability, as well trained as any MD . Again, I’m speaking of this systemically and my .02 is that if it looks like a doc and walks like a doc , it’s a doc. It’s development though, the role of the NP, is still one of leveraging ‘The Doctor” – and protecting physician billables. Dressed in the “patient centered” nursing model and professional empowerment, and a whole lot of fuzzy that in high volume settings is out the fuckin window, and given the crush of the system, unapolagetically so.

As a practical matter, the NP is physician as are many of the experienced nurses in clinical settings. If for personal reasons health care “professionals” want to be in a supportive role they could be classified as Techs or PA’s (another scam in its present form in my view- looks like a doc walks like a doc).

Much of my criticism of “nursing” is linguistic but I think its valid in that it goes a long way in maintaining the status quo.

Physicians have devolved into brokers, and nurses , if the trend continues increasingly into managers…We’ll be fine…

marisacat - 28 June 2009

Physicians have devolved into brokers,

19. marisacat - 27 June 2009

sigh. More sagas from Obama… Truth Out from Pro Publica and Wapo:

The Obama administration, fearing a battle with Congress that could stall plans to close Guantanamo, is drafting an executive order that would reassert presidential authority to incarcerate suspected terrorists indefinitely, according to three senior government officials with knowledge of White House deliberations.

Such an order would embrace claims by former President George W. Bush that certain people can be detained without trial for long periods under the laws of war. Obama advisers are concerned that bypassing Congress could place the president on weaker footing before the courts and anger key supporters, the officials said. [laugh at the ex Con Law prof! --Mcat]

After months of internal debate over how to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, White House officials are growing increasingly worried that reaching quick agreement with Congress on a new detention system may prove impossible. Several officials said there is concern in the White House that the administration may not be able to close the facility by the president’s January 2010 deadline. [blame congress! Waaa! Their approval ratings remain low!]

White House spokesman Ben LaBolt did not directly respond to questions about an executive order but said the administration would address the cases of Guantanamo detainees in a manner “consistent with the national security interests of the United States and the interests of justice.”
snip

Don’t miss this ticbit… does the administration sound NEW? A CHANGE? HOPEFUL?

“Civil liberties groups have encouraged the administration, that if a prolonged detention system were to be sought, to do it through executive order,” the official said. Such an order can be rescinded and would not block later efforts to write legislation, but civil liberties groups generally oppose long-term detention, arguing that detainees should either be prosecuted or released. snip

It wasn’t me! The Civil Liberties people MADE me do it.

geesh.

And this elsewhere in the text:

But the three senior government officials said …

I read once that the standard is “two senior government officials”… and when a mainstream press report states “three”, one is Pretzel. Or these days, The Holy Prophet.

We are so blessed.

With domestic civil rights needs he claims legislative action is what he seeks… (And will never get.) But here:

“Legislation could kill Obama’s plans,” said one government official involved. The official said an executive order could be the best option for the president at this juncture.
