Alaska: Legislation Drafted to Protect Alaskans' Property Rights - Alaska Representatives Bob Lynn (R-Anchorage) and Lesil McGuire (R-Anchorage) have both requested that Legislative Legal Services draft legislation to protect Alaskan property owners from government abuse of private property rights.

In a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision the court allowed governments to use condemnation not only to clean up neighborhoods and promote economic development, but also to take homes and other property in still viable neighborhoods from owners to increase revenue from property tax. - More...

National: Supreme Court split over Ten Commandments By MICHAEL COLLINS - America's culture warriors found something to celebrate and to curse about Supreme Court rulings Monday that some Ten Commandments displays on government property are constitutionally permissible, but others aren't.

In two 5-4 decisions, the nation's high court ruled that displays in two county courthouses in rural Kentucky violated the constitutional ban on government "establishment of religion," but said that a 6-foot granite marker on the state Capitol grounds in Texas did not. - More...

National: High court decides slew of hot-button cases in this term By MARY DEIBEL - From Ten Commandments displays and state experiments with medical marijuana to Terri Schiavo's fate, the Supreme Court showed again this term why it is a storm center of American life.

The justices' refusal to second-guess Florida courts in allowing the removal of the brain-damaged woman's feeding tube provoked House Republican leader Tom DeLay of Texas to warn that judges would "answer for their behavior." He apologized later.

But other lawmakers have suggested stripping the court of the power to decide hot-button cases - including Ten Commandments and other cases that involve "the public acknowledgment of God as the sovereign" - and have called for impeaching judges they consider "out of the mainstream." - More...

International: Bush, Schroeder Exchange Views on Iran's Nuclear Program - President Bush, meeting with German leader Gerhard Schroeder, said the development of a nuclear weapon by Iran remains "unacceptable," and urged Germany, France and the United Kingdom, collectively known as the EU-3, to continue their discussions with Iran to curb that country's nuclear program.

In remarks to the press with the German chancellor at the White House June 27, Bush said, "My message to the chancellor is that we continue working with Great Britain, France and Germany to send a focused, concerted, unified message that says the development of a nuclear weapon is unacceptable and a process which would enable Iran to develop a nuclear weapon is unacceptable."

The Bush administration is concerned that Iran has been pursuing nuclear weapons under cover of a civilian nuclear program, and has accused Tehran of hiding its nuclear activities from the international community.

According to press reports, Iran suspended all of its uranium enrichment-related activities in November 2004 to avoid possible U.N. sanctions, but it said the suspension was temporary. The EU-3 countries have reportedly offered economic concessions if Iran permanently halts all of its uranium-enrichment activities. - More...

International: Despite Violence, Iraq Is Making Steady Progress, Rumsfeld Says By Howard Cincotta - constitution, Iraq continues to make solid progress despite the deadly actions of a violent insurgency, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said in a series of television news appearances Sunday.

On ABC's This Week and NBC's Meet the Press, Rumsfeld cited the growth of Iraqi security forces, which now number 168,500 and include police and border guards as well as regular army troops. There are an additional 50,000 to 70,000 site-protection forces, he said.

Rumsfeld predicted on NBC's Meet the Press that Iraq would be able to deploy 200,000 security forces by October 2005, when the Iraqi people vote on their new constitution and prepare for parliamentary elections in December.

"The success in training the Iraqi security forces has been significant," Rumsfeld said on ABC's This Week. "And the respect for the Iraqi security forces by the Iraqi people - the polls show that they are very well respected because of what they're doing."- More...

International: China on hunt to satisfy its thirst for oil - China is the big oilman on the world stage today.

China's thirst for energy has been a major factor driving up the international price of oil and China's takeover bid for Unocal Corporation makes it clear to Americans that the 1.3 billion Chinese people are demanding an ever-larger supply of the world's energy to fuel their booming economy and will get it wherever necessary, according to a story reported today by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Chinese firms are pumping oil and natural gas in many areas that the United States was counting on to meet its own record-high demand.

While China's supply network does not yet rival the global clout of U.S.-based oil corporations, the shift raises concerns of politicians and analysts in the United States and Southeast Asia who see China as a future global giant motivated by the same powerful self-interest as American Big Oil. - More...
