An account of Israel's Ethnic Cleansing of the Palestinians from uncovered official and other sources.
2000 Election: Fraud, 9-11-01=Inside Job, Afganistan: Illegal War, Iraq: Illegal War, 2004 Election: Fraud; How long will we allow this to go on ond on? Ever hear of the Republicrat Party? That is, Republican or Demecrat, as in synonymous. 1913 is when it all went bad for the Constitutinal Republic of the United States of America. The Federal Reserve Act: Illegal. Federal Reserve (Monopoly: as in Hasbro Brothers) money has no monetary backing (Gold). The IRS: Illegal. Income Tax: Illegal; The 16th Amendment to the Constitution: Does not grant the U.S. Government any new powers of taxation (Supreme Court ruling 1916). Yet, you comply like dosile sheep. Filling out your 1040 and paying up to the IRS, Federal Reserve extortion, which pays for none of the services provided by our government, by the way, but only lines the pockets of a few thousand families of Capitalist Pig Bankers who in thier unpresidented arrogance believe they should rule us, and rule the world.
A study released last December by the non-partisan Congressional Research Service says a proposed 700 mile stretch of fence, along the 2,000 mile U.S. - Mexico border, could cost an estimated $49 billion. But what the report fails to say, U.S. -built walls on the border would cost both the U.S. and Mexico trillions of dollars in economic losses over the predicted 25-year lifespan of the fence, and non-monetary damage to political and cultural relations between the two countries would also last for decades.
Sen. Tom Coburn has had enough!
Stand with the Vets
This is to recognize the great young activists at Sandy High School who courageously - and cleverly - protested the recent inane changes to their school dress code.
A little advice from someone who has been there...
What kind of macho sportsmen fishes in a baby pool?
I have this fake consultant, but his advice is stunningly real. George boy, I hope your brother Jebbo is taking heed of this. If Florida goes under water, there will that many fewer electoral votes for you to steal!
Ms. Nowak is only human after all...
The Israelis are trying, by a hopeless campaign, to convince the world of their loyalty and cleanliness, but they already revealed, through nearly sixty years of repression, their real intentions.
guerrilla then and now
Voting for a Democrat or a Republican is doing the same over and over and expecting another result. That is insanity.
This is NOT a surge.
It just brings the troop levels back up.

The American (w)Rec(k)reation Council's President, Derrick Crandall has gone far out on a dangerous limb ---
and I am pleased.
The American public needs to see a lot more actual analysis of the Iraqi Constitution that the U.S. has attempted to dictate to the Iraqi people. Why has such an analysis been hid from us? Would it expose too much of U.S. government's real intentions? This should be the focus of Washington's legislative debate about supporting Iraq?
Capitalism is Hell
from: http://www.zmag.org/content/showarticle.cfm?ItemID=11963. Ed Herman and David Peterson discuss US-Israel's plans for Iran, including the role of the Democrats.
While not substantively answering Carter's criticisms, his critics confirmed Carter's claim that the Zionist lobby tries to intimidate its critics by charging them with anti-Semitism. ..."It was not the crematoria or pogroms that made our life in the diaspora bitter before they began to kill us, but persecution, harassment, stone-throwing, damage to livelihood, intimidation, spitting and scorn," said Lapid, describing his childhood in Croatia....It is inconceivable for the memory of Auschwitz to warrant ignoring the fact that there are Jews among us who behave today towards Palestinians just like German, Hungarian, Polish and other anti-Semites behaved towards Jews,"
A bed bug? Crawling on people all day long? That'll be the day, I snorted to myself. Well it was quite disgusting to me reading those ridiculous bed bug blogs.
Then the pest control company came.

America is going down the toilet! Question: What are you going to do about it? The Russian writer, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, urged his people, in 1974, to take on the Stalinists remnant and to "Live Not by Lies." Today, America is languishing under the Bush-Cheney Gang, Masters of Deception. "Obedience to lies," Solzhenitsyn said, robs a people, keeping them "in the herd and a coward." Remedy--"Live by the truth...It is the only [choice] for a soul."
I believe the thing homeless people often crave, miss, and desire most, is PRIVACY. Often privacy is the most necessary missing element for the recovery of a homeless person's hope and faith, and a return of their dignity. The privacy becomes a symbol of safety, even. We come to know we are safe, *because* we have the privacy to rest and regroup. Think about it. And if we cannot lock physical doors for privacy and safety, we begin to lock mental doors for sanity...

Recently, well-meaning individuals have called for support of the Green Scare defendants who have not been apprehended. These calls for support have included the names, photos, FBI Wanted posters, and announcements of rewards for people who are struggling to remain free.
A great site exposing the lies and corruption we have come to know as 'AID$'
It's time for humans to grow up emotionally and spiritually. There are over six billion individual humans on this planet, all living at the same time. Yes, there are lots of crazy motherfuckers in the world, and we all contribute to the whole. The real fun part is that now we actually have the technology to instantly destroy ourselves, or quickly repair the only place we can inhabit.

The scientific consensus is that we've got only ten years left to address global warming-and two will go to waste because of George Bush. This is what scientists from organizations like NASA are saying when they can get past Bush's censorship.
this map is a great gateway into what the military is thinking about.
the people responsible for this article have obviously done little research into who actually lives on the borders they want to change. from looking at their map, one source would surely be the Kurdish nationalist lobby.
Each ethnic group in the middle east has a fanatic nationalist wing with lots of power and each one of these factions has their own nationalist map which usually includes lands currently inhabited by rival ethnic groups. The maps are usually based in some ancient times when the particular ethnic group's empire was at it's peak in land mass.

As Raw Story tells us, Google has finally addressed link bombs, attempts to influence the ranking of a given page in results returned by the Google search engine. Specifically, and apparently embarrassing for the corporation, entering "miserable failure" in the search engine returned George Bush. Vladimir Putin returned "enemy of the people," a description not too far off the mark.
Some people, like Lt. Ehren Watada stand up and speak out to raise the issue of the illegality and immortality of the Iraq invasion and occupation. Others, like, Lt. General James M. Dubik, the Commanding General of Fort Lewis, must find subversive means.

As described in a recent (Jan. 30) article at realclimate.org there are two hearings that are of relevance for climate change science readers: The House Oversight Committee has hearings on the possible suppression of climate change science by the administration ... and the Senate Committee has an open forum for senators to discuss climate change legislation.

"Why are you travelling so often to Canada?" the tough U.S. border guard barked. I was on Amtrak, going from New York to Montreal, as I'd done dozen of times before over several decades. This was my first experience (summer 2006) of the increasingly standard and intrusive "U.S. Exit Interviews" on trains crossing the border. I've been hassled on every train crossing since then, most recently January 2007. The U.S. now has a combined FBI-compiled file of all arrests and charges at all government levels for millions of Americans, and this is instantly viewable by police in many jurisdictions, including border officials of the U.S. and most other countries.
The recent decree by Roberto Requião, Governor of the state of Paraná, to expropriate the Syngenta corporation's experimental site in Santa Tereza do Oeste has become a powerful symbol for all interests in the struggle over the future of Brazilian agriculture.
My elected official told me that people don't have a desire for the "nightmare of impeachment." It is an emotional appeal but this has much substance as cotton candy.
Got your bag packed for the detention center?
Once again, hundreds of thousands have demonstrated their opposition to Bush's war and domestic repression. That's not stopping Bush's push into Iran, Somalia and increased troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. Just as activists need to become organizers, dissent must turn to resistance. (All opinions stated here are the authors alone.)
They will always be Boon and Doggle to me . . .
A little rant, covering the frosting on the tip of the iceberg, of the complete utter nonsensical stupidity of christianity. Other western religions are also just as vile.
Writing is not my skill, but I hope to encourage others to write more, and start calling religion for what it is. The future of our world depends on it.
I have learned a few new things about bed bugs this weekend that give me reason to retract and clarify some things I have written about bed bugs in the past month or so...
Super Duper Bowl Sunday is a "special event." Why not make it REALLY special?
Alternative analysis of Iraq 'civil war." With the history of US infanticide and planned pillaging of what remains of Iraq's economy, is there any reason not to expect resistance?
Escape from death in a gas chamber or a Pogrom, or incarceration in a concentration camp, may give a thoughtful and capable writer, Solzhenitsyn for example, profound insights into many of the
central elements of contemporary existence, but such an experience does not, in itself, make Solzhenitsyn a thinker, a writer, or even a critic of concentration camps; it does not, in itself, confer any special powers.
In another person the experience might lie dormant as a potentiality, or remain forever meaningless, or it might contribute to making the person an ogre. In short, the experience is an indelible part of the individual's past but it does not determine his future; the individual is free to choose his future;
he is even free to choose to abolish his freedom, in which case he chooses in bad faith and is a Salaud (J.P. Sartre's precise philosophical term for a person who makes such a choice [The usual English translation is "Bastard"]).
Socio-Political Commentary in Marvel Comics' Classic Hero
A massive anti-Iraqi War rally was held, in D.C., on Sat., Jan. 27, 2007. The Chairman of the House's Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), sent an unmistakable warning to President George W. Bush. Conyers said he wants the "war stopped." He reminded Bush, that the U.S. Congress "can fire him." Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Bush "tricked the American people" into the war. She said, to loud applause: "Bush isn't the decider. He's the liar!"

On Dec 23rd 2002, Little T.J. Carroll died in a drowning accident. Thus began the nightmare for this childs family. Florida child Protective Services had T.J.'s siblings in State custody before this childs body was cold! The abuse suffered while in State custody and the battle that has insued and still continues is gut wrenching. Is there help for this Family out there? Which of us will be next to suffer from the hands of Child protective services?
Apologists for Earl Blumenauer and other pro-war Democrats who pretend to oppose the occupation of the Middle East are unable to answer why Earl et al refuse to co-sponsor HR 508, an actual antidote to war-mongering Republicrats.
