A Brookings Institution analysis of the deaths caused in Iraq over a 2-week period is misleading. It completely omits the deaths caused by U.S. forces, which would likely have more than doubled the total, and increased the civilian death total even more dramatically.

Looks like the "power of nightmares" is finally being given some air by the LA times. Now I hope the CIA will not only give up on bin laden, but come clean on Al-qaeda too. Maybe they can make something up new for us, so we don't have to make them look dumber then we do. It's our own fault, we voted for these fools...or did we? Looks like the jokes on us.
Find some pieces of the puzzle
A battle in the skies is waged daily. Some battles are won and others lost. We yet know not which. For years this massive global project has been under way, but only now is it making it to the forefront of the consciousness of those with curious minds. These open minds know that every belief system fails; and only fails, under the weight of new truthful information.
Even a cursory look at this site yields foundation-moving questions for weather guys, and moves the mind into this reality.

Murdoch's final push to become the purveyor of pentagon fascist propaganda peddling.
The fresh-faced pundit, recently pink-slipped by CNN, is bummed that Iraqis aren't more grateful for all America's been doing for them, and suggests their ingratitude will likely be shared by the victims of the recent tsunami, what with so many of them being Islamic and all.
I'm trying to post a list of the KBOO stories to raise awareness about the morning news, and make sure that all you activists are letting us know if we miss any stories... plus, it's an easy way to see if there are any stories out there that you hadn't heard about...
As the fervor dies down and the media stops their fanatical coverage of this event, moving on as they inevitably do to the next celebrity basketball match or the next Pentagon press release, what will happen to the tsunami victims?

Michael Moore Just finished his acceptance speech at the People's Choice Awards, in which he dedicated the award to the Men and Women fighting in Iraq. He said we all live in a great country and we all love our country, and that it didn't matter if you were Republicans, Democrats or independents, that we were all Americans.
. . .the networks and Mitofsky have been collaborating under different organizational titles, such as Voter News Service, since 1964.
Nothing about the 2004 election makes sense. The numbers don't add up. The surveys don't match up. But, the networks have clammed up. Despite mounting questions and controversy, the networks continue to stonewall. Citing proprietary claims (something the voting machine companies like to do), the NEP won't release the raw exit poll data. Okay. Maybe they have a point. However, they also won't release any logistical information either, particularly where and when the exit polling was conducted. And that's definitely not cricket.
John Zogby, president of Zogby International, a well-known polling company, said that such complete non-transparency is a "violation of polling ethics".
Getting through to the mainstream media about the J20 general strike and Bush inauguration protest is essential. Not one damn dime day seems to be breaking through already but we can and should do more. Find allies and true journalists in the mainstream corporate media and continue to forward messages to them in newer, less conventional ways.

Give it up people
I'm watching CSPAN1.
The grander part of the Republican and the Democratic parties are colluding (they like to call their collusion "bipartisanship") toward a one-party fascist state that supports and allows endemic vote fraud, and which supports and verifies a frivolous, illegitimate, and corrupt federal government voting framework.
The House, and Senate, and of course Presidency are henceforth quite visibly to be unable to deal with their own corruption from the inside.
It is to everyone else to force the issue upon them.
THERE IS AT PRESENT ONLY ONE REAL REPUBLICAN left in the U.S. House of Representative. This real Republican--the actual conservative, the actual preservation of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, the real supporter of a whole framweork of support against vote fraud--only one real Republian left. And this real Republican has presently has said "Yea." (yes) for support to object to certification of Ohio Electors.
Unknown whom. We will find out very soon.

CSPAN PART OF THE BUSH FASCIST OVERTHROW; CENSORING SENATE COVERAGE OF VOTE CHALLENGE AND CENSORING SENATOR BOXER'S PRESS CONFERENCE
CSPAN originally announced that one channel would be covering Senate and one covering the House counting of the Electoral Votes. Fair enough I thought.
Next, before that, CSPAN2 actually had half of Sen. Boxer's press conference describing myriad problems with the Ohio voting infrastructure that showed systemic vote fraud.
HOWEVER, IT WAS CENSORED. DURING THE BOXER PRESS CONFERENCE, which was framed as a series of questions about all the different levels of fraud, CSPAN TWO CUT AWAY FROM HER, MUTED a Senator's voice to nothingness, and an anonymous voice came on and described "at this time, Senators and Representatives are moving to their respective houses, etc." and we saw several minutes of senators and representatives walking over, without anything actually going on, while someone made a decision to remove Sen. Boxer's statement from the visual live record, and move her to a smaller MUTE screen in the bottom left-hand corner while we saw silent Congress people walking, and walking, and walking. The walking had very important sound coverage. Sen. Boxer did not! Then CSPAN put up Pelosi and she avoided the whole topic of vote fraud, and CSPAN at present is not covering the counting like the said earlier they would.
The outgoing Secretary of State says he's shaken and horrified by the tsunami's destructive power, yet has nothing to say about the far greater destruction and death wreaked in Iraq by the U.S. military that he was so instrumental in sending over there. The difference isn't the degree of destruction and death, it's what caused it.
Read at the risk of your own sanity. This CBS article is just ugly enough that I cannot remain silent.
... And a subtext of this posting is just one more reason to distrust corporate media.
The following topics are all geared up in the Corporate Media machine to cloud any attempt to object to the fraudulent election held on November 2nd 2004.

"Estimates not for on air use." That's an interesting statement, eh?
Of course, that wasn't his intent. He was railing about how little Muslim countries were giving compared to the US in tsunami aid. But, in his typical obfuscating style he never bothered to discuss the wealth of the various countries involved. That is, the US has the largest economy in the world, and is the wealthiest country in the world. And the question that should be asked is who is more generous, those that have a lot and give a little of what they have or those that have a little and give a lot of what they have. Here then is the aid given by the countries Limbaugh rails against ordered by aid as a percentage of GDP. As you will see, the US is not the least generous, but far from the most.
dude-people, check out the story about the so-called "primitive" people in SE asia who shot bows and arrows at relief helicopters... look for it on a search engine. and let us know what we missed!
We've been robbed again, and yet most voters probably know little about this latest episode of electoral travesty.. The date of Jan 6, 2005 is key.. Action Speaks asks you to contact your senator.. Too much is at stake to simply drop this issue and move on.

We are developing a vision for a protest, a peaceful protest, a loving protest, and a protest rich in resistance. We have a route, we are working on permits, for a march that will take us through the city and allow us to speak and witness those institutions which are most threatening to the good life that we would all like to live. We are looking for speakers, ones who can speak from the heart on issues they care about, at stops along the way.

The DIA is behind online harassment against IndyMedia.
Based on the analysis of the time sequence in which these Governments received information and failed or decided not to act is alarming. --- Indian Military, for example, clearly got the information two hours before the Tsunami hit the India's mainland. An Indian Air Force base was wiped out in Andaman Nicobar island near Sumatra [how convenient, assures U.S. is the "first eco-terrorism responder"]. . .India is notified of loss of its military base TWO HOURS BEFORE tsunami hit mainland India. However, though Indian Military tried to inform the civilian pro-Bush government of India, it did nothing with this two-hour foreknowledge and instead simply waited for the tsunami to stike India without issuing any warnings to its citizens. Thus, many Indians are killed INTENTIONALLY due to purposeful criminal negligence. --- How do you justify that all six Governments failed separately in their own domain one by one. --- The most amazing thing is that United States Geological Survey and Ocean Monitoring agencies came to know about the Tsunhe Tsunami and earthquake but decided not to do anything. --- The whole world decided to fail to do anything together, at the same time. --- In Thailand, some in the Government said they decided not to act because it would just scare people. Really? Are we not supposed to get scared of scary things?
U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, WILLIAM COHEN SAID, ON AN "ECO-TYPE OF TERRORISM":
"Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations... It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." (1997 QUOTE)
Al Neuhardth, editor of USA Today, wrote two days before Christmas thatthe best way of helping our soldiers is to protect them from unwise imprudent presidents who send them into thoughtless ill-considered adventures like Vietnam and Iraq. These soldiers should be brought home.

National Speaking Tour
Tre Arrow, an environmentalist, refugee and political prisoner, has been incarcerated in Canada for over nine months. He's awaiting an extradition hearing which would see him returned to his native country, the United States. While incarcerated, Mr. Arrow's case has gained international attention. Early this spring Mr. Arrow held an astonishing 44 day hunger strike in "solidarity with all those suffering around the world as a result of corporate agendas which leave in their wake poisoned water, contaminated air and lack of adequate food." Mr. Arrow was reduced to a deathly 81 pounds. His lawyer, Rudolf Kischer, told the Globe and Mail, "He looks like a Holocaust victim, it [is] horrifying."
