12-08-2004 21:31

All offences could prompt arrest under Home Office proposals

Police in England and Wales could be given powers to arrest people for minor offences such as graffiti or litter.

Police can currently arrest people only for crimes with sentences of at least five years, meaning breach of the peace is often used as a "catch all" offence.

Implementing the Nicaragua Plan in Venezuela

12-08-2004 17:41

The International Republican Institute:
Implementing the Nicaragua Plan in Venezuela

International Republican Institute (“IRI”): A U.S. based non-governmental entity founded upon suggestion by former President Ronald Reagan, the IRI is a major recipient of NED funds for various projects around the world. In March 2002, just one month before the April 2002 coup d’etat, IRI received an impressive $300,000 grant from the NED for “Strengthening Political Parties” in Venezuela. IRI received an additional $116,000 in February 2003, at the culmination of the 64-day opposition imposed lockout that devastated the Venezuelan economy. One of the main political parties participating in both the coup and the lockout, Primero Justicia, is a major benefactor of IRI funds. IRI’s massive financing for its Venezuelan projects has almost exclusively been funneled into developing and strengthening political parties to oppose the Chávez Administration. IRI also maintains close contact with the U.S. Embassy, which has also been a backer of the opposition’s undemocratic tactics.

US revealed to be secretely funding opponents of Chavez

12-08-2004 17:34

The NED awarded a significant $53,400 grant to the Venezuelan group, Súmate, in September 2003, for the sole purpose of promoting a campaign for a recall referendum on President Chávez’s mandate. Súmate was established solely with the objective of removing President Chávez from office prematurely through a recall referendum, and has no credentials or history to evidence its accomplishments or democratic ideals. Nevertheless, the NED willingly handed Súmate the $53,400 needed to fund the entire referendum campaign and to develop propaganda encourage Venezuelans to vote against Chávez.

Truth is coherent

12-08-2004 14:48

I'm a hopeless liar. Not to say I do it a lot, but the opposite. I'm so
hopeless at the game of lying I have to avoid it. Unless I have a moral
reason to lie ('No commandant, Anne Frank is not hiding in my attic' or less
seriously, 'Yes, you look fantastic!') I find it much easier not to. Just in
practical terms, lies require a lot more maintenance than truth. If pressed,
you can't rely on actuality to fill in the detail. You have to produce other
supporting lies and these may not cohere with other aspects of reality,
causing you to generate even more lies of increasing feebleness, with
increasing dry-mouth - ugh!
