I have wondered why the people of this nation did not get up off the couches and go to the streets after Bush stole ANOTHER fucking election. I think I may have discovered the reason.
I need witnesses to my arrest
While in Kanada on December 2/04, George II said ALL
nations must join his NWO and use pre-emptive strikes
against "all enemies of 'democracy'".
Saddam Hussein has been universally and rightly condemned for filling thousands of mass graves. Might there be a new killer kid on the block? For more details, read on.
Justifying the call for Jihad against the United States of America, on December 11, 2004, another day of the New Moon
ah, ha, ha, ha, ha, haaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you look at the changes in the political economy of Afghanistan, you may conclude that this is neither a "war on terror" that Washington says it is nor a pipeline war as some of its critics allege. It looks as if it is the latest Opium War, regardless of intentions of all parties (Afghans, Americans, Europeans, and others) involved.
There has been afew times when this and the other resolver server attempted to add and/or delete files from my computer. These creeps at level3.net may be peering into your personal computer since you have to go through them to anywhere on the net here in the Northwest.
It's obvious why the Bush administration doesn't ask Americans to make any voluntary sacrifices for the "war" . . .
George Bush has nominated Condoleezza Rice to be his next Secretary of State and Cynthia McKinney has been reelected to the U.S. House of Representatives. For one, I'd love to see Rice go head to head on US foreign policy with Congressowman-elect Cynthia McKinney. But the only way any of us can see that happen is for Cynthia to regain her service and seniority on the House International Relations Committee (HIRC), which has jurisdiction over the State Department and our country's foreign policy. I can't think of any reason why the Democratic leadership wouldn't want this.
JS: Our guest today, Karl Schwarz, author of the book, "One Way Ticket to Crawford Texas. Folks, if you want information that will, as I say, curl your nose hairs, the book itself is $24.95. It is 832 pages long. That is available on the website http://www.rbnlive.com
"And it's not actually six articles, it's nine articles now because we continue to have witnesses come forward and just putting some incredible information in our laps."
"There was apparently a 300% increase in the insurance on the World Trade Center towers in June and July of 2001. I mean they increased the total insurance payable by 300%, at least. We also have put some information in Spitzer's hands that on 9/11 there was a $120 billion debt due (with a B) and that was tied to a gold collateralization and a Brady Bond deal and evidently it didn't close. Our sources have told us that who was closing that transaction was CANTOR FITZGERALD [almost totally lost their whole financial staff there, more than 100 financiers--only finance company experiencing such "loss", others pretty much OK] and that's the firm that took the biggest hit. They basically took a 767 right in their face."
KS: One of those hard drives was 99% plus recovered. And there was a file on that hard drive, titled "911. And I'm thinking that that may be computer from Cantor Fritzgerald and it may have had information. Now they claim, well we turned it over to the appropriate investigating authorities. And I said, well if you're talking about the DOJ and FBI, they are not going to investigate themselves. We have been trying to get them to release that same information to Elliot Spitzer because I think there is a smoking gun right there."
Ruppert? Thorn? Let's see how truth fits into this.
They are giving us the bullshit excuse that there is some question about the immigration status of a housekeeper and nanny he employed. In reality I bet they came upon some financial conflicts of interest that would ruin his confirmation. Kerik had earned $6.2 million by exercising stock options he received from Taser International, which did lucrative business with the Department of Homeland Security.
The time has come to start sorting out all the phony 'progressives' and all the hypocrites in pulpits and the wannabe but not activists, using this very important test case of a sailor refusing to serve in Iraq!
Soldiers dissing the Secretary of Defense, mutinies, desertion at record highs. Can officer fragging be far behind? Does any of this sound familiar?
The Dragon wants to know
It's an old story--this one from the late Cold War--The Government tells the lie that the Media calls the truth.
All the talk about "disengagement" has masked more than it has revealed. That becomes clear from emerging revelations on the implementation of Sharon's plan to establish two "closed areas": the Gaza Strip and the northern half of the West Bank, which will be cut off from each other, severed from Jerusalem and from the southern half of the West Bank.
Commentary on the battle between progress, progressive thought against the forces of backwardness, and how these regressive powers are fighting a losing battle because history proves progress will always move us forward, not backwards.
Roth's story conflates anti-war and anti-Semitic notions dangerously.
This was quite an interesting article.
American soldiers dying in the Emperor's quagmire in Iraq.
In this blog entry from optruth.org, a soldier takes the media to task, but also Rumsfeld. Read today's article, "media manipulation", to see the parallel between his complaints and a former officer addressing that exact same issue in detail. There is also a short comment about vets coming back...showing up at shelters.
Forget Red and Blue states. There are only voters, and most of them, in every state, are worried about war, want a world for their grandchildren, and are beset by economic woes that call for progressive, anti-corporate solutions. A Democratic Party that forgets trying to play to the middle and that addresses those issues will be a winner.
the "opt-out" list worked for telemarketing, why not do the same for unwanted solicitation by army recruiters?
There were too many articles that concerned this issue to find the right one to post to, so I thought I'd just post it fresh. Thanks to indymedia, I became aware and took action. This is the response that my sister received,(mom and friend received similar).
the questions keep coming . . .
This article comes from an independent(?) site called Foreign Policy in Focus. The article is just more acknowledgedment of the corporate grip on the US media. We know the Jessica Lynch story was a scam, here a retired US army colonel breaks down the Pat Tillman fraud and elaborates on media manipulation.
Over a month has passed since the elections and Goli Ameri still has not conceded defeat to David Wu. Even The Oregonian, which endorsed Ameri twice (primary and general elections), allowed its sister-paper the Hillsboro Argus to editorialize that "The graceless loser award for this election goes to Goli Ameri" (Novermber 4th).
In his latest column for the New Statesman, John Pilger revisits an earlier 'humanitarian' invasion - in Kosovo. He describes the parallels with the invasion of Iraq, especially the fraudulent justifications for intervening in a 'genocide' that never was. : Pilger :08 Dec 2004
Remembering John Lennon
Gunned down December 8 1980
Fallujah shows more than ever we need to rebuild the anti war movement. What would John say?
All necessary steps must be taken.
"Get off your self-demeaning 'Bill Maher Show knees' and once again confront the forces of corporate power and domination."
Well! Wouldn't you know it, that fucked up corporation is activiely droping in on folks while they are surfing the web and attermpting to leave something behind to cause trouble for your computer.
Thank goodness for pdx imc compost!
Parallel strategy of Engagement. People who play chess, a martial game, know about trying to think like the enemy. It's almost essential to not be waxed on a consistant basis. All you need to know, is what the enemy's end game is.
Willamette Week's reaction to the Anti-fur rally
I have copied the various definitions of INSANITY from different dictionaries. I will leave it to you whether you think Bush supporters are insane. I think they are...
Link to a flash animation "same as it ever was", set to the tune of Talking heads, "once in a lifetime". This song came out in, drum roll...1984. You may ask yourself, "how did I get here?"
It was 24 years ago today...
The insanity of these wars
In this article/comment you will see how the leftgate keepers like "the nation", smeared Greg Palast. Greg Palast(for those that don't know), has the acclaimed video "the best democracy money can buy". "Stunning... disturbing... important", is what Senator John Edwards said. (was that before he became a bilderberg?)
This is a good deconstruction not trying to use "linguistics" to take back the language from "conservatives" or "liberals". Straight up talking is what America needs, not snake oil salesmen selling majic elixirs of politics and division...or the corporate media that pushes it.

I often wonder how many young people concerned about a possible draft read this web site.
We have all heard the stories about soldiers who are not being allowed to come home from Iraq as a result of the military's Stop Loss provision. Is this really true?
what follows is a piece of a thread from a listserv i belong to. i am exhausted trying to explain myself. thought it might get a response here. have fun.
I found this and thought you would enjoy it..

There is a widespread public perception in the US that violent crime is rampant and only the bold and dangerous work of police officers is protecting us from it. This perception is largely unsupported by facts. Perception of crime and danger has increased while actual incidence of crime has decreased. Sensationalistic media are to blame. The resulting public perception feeds would-be totalitarians in business and government.
Government transparency is fundamental to democracy. As, Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Information is the currency of democracy." Our Democracy cannot endure without a committed citizenry and an open government that answers to the people. Our Democracy has survived because of the participation of its citizenry, which completely depends on the government's transparency and accountability.
Here is a coment from an older article and a reply
Not only do reporters get the numbers wrong, but nobody in the mainstream media, or Congress is even asking what a democracy is doing spending $40 billion a year in secret funds on "intelligence" and spying.
After this preface there is re-typed, VERBATIM, my original investigation report of 1972. Since there is currently supposed Anti-Iraq War Movements, it is instructive to study prior such movements. Why? To determine, by example, if the leadership and direction they are taking secretly serves the purposes of the Aristocracy.
Now that Frans van Anraat is to be charged with assisting genocide by supplying Saddam Hussein with lethal chemicals, it is time to arrest the CEOs and employees of corporations that did the same.
One facet of propaganda is the utilization of unfounded assumptions in an attempt to justify wars or other projects of the rich and powerful. Also, elections can be used to legitimize wars or to accomplish the corporate takeover and privatization of certain countries.
It is unprecedented, disgusting and shameful how bankrupt so-called journalism has SUNK. More concern for their paychecks, phony careerism than professional ethics, democracy and duty to perform as a watchdog for and IN the Public Interest. This citizen will constantly ALERT the 'People of the Web' to crackpot, simplistic, invalid analysis of those who would aid in concealing and propping up a practice form and style of government that is openly flaunting the rule of law, denying Voting Rights and breaking laws ensuring free, fair elections-- the main way to petition a government for a redress of grievances. Do not these establishment defending appartchiks, dissent barrier specialists realize their product is credibility? Millions of AmeriCANs are highly suspicious of this election where Kerry did worse than Gore against a candidate who LOST support, and declared winning states he lost in 2000 at a time his approval rating was 48%? Suppress and Pad the vote , now suppress public awareness with the use of omission, ridicule, slander and diversion without the even any sound arguments or honest reporting of verified and numerous irregularites as they try to SinSpin their infecting mind virus to unwrite the history of OUR LandSlide. Here is some BS from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Pass the Reynolds* Wrap - I'd rather wear the 'tin-foil hat' THAN the dictators cap- BLAST this guys box with some HomeWork so we can all GET BACK HOME!
