Freedom of the Press is Dead Worldwide (tags)
CIA Director Pompeo claims Wikileaks is a "hostile secret service" and Julian Assange is not a journalist. Democracy cannot function without watchdogs. Watchdogs and whistle-blowers must be under special protection.

No Recovery in Sight (tags)
After the recent unemployment numbers were announced, smug politicians promising economic recovery stuttered a bit. This wasn’t supposed to happen. Mainstream economists were predicting a smooth upswing in employment, but in September 263,000 more jobs were lost, 62,000 more than August. Obama reacted predictably to the surprise. He first pointed out that “employment is the last thing to recover from a recession,” and concluded that “…we are going to need to grind out this recovery, step by step.” Brilliant.

WHY is Exposure, Investigation Critical? Prosecute electoral fraud = Quell Fascism. (tags)
Have republicans in both houses secured seats and hence majority status on the backs of voting machines instead of the backing of the People. Is their good fortune due more to faulty, partisan electronic malfeasence ? INSTEAD of selection made by the force of good ideas, positive path platforms and real, honest acceptance by committed, concerned constituents seeking genuine change. Alarm bells are rringing among the populace, with a recent poll saying 72% believe we are heading in the wrong direction! I believe the citizenry is activated, aware and aghast- WHY is this resonance not reflected in the representation, RutRoh!
URGENT: ACT NOW (!) TO UNHIJACK THE ELECTION (tags)
The 2004 Presidential election is NOT over! There's evidence the election may have been "hijacked" by fraud and that Bush has NOT won. A nationwide grassroots movement is underway to uncover the fraud, get the votes counted (or recounted) and file lawsuits, and YOUR HELP IS NEEDED NOW. Please spread the word, pitch in some volunteer time, help recruit volunteers with legal and/or computer expertise, and consider donating money. The Presidency won't be decided until the Electoral College meets on December 12; it's not too late to Redefeat Bush Again.
CHRISTIANS ARE RISING UP AGAINST GREED, FEAR & BUSH (tags)

DESIGNED TO DEMORALIZE? SEVEN REASONS *NOT* TO TRUST PRESIDENTIAL POLLS. (tags)
Sick of the daily bombardment of polls showing Kerry running "neck-and-neck" with Bush? Feeling demoralized? Don't be! Most of the polls are a bunch of baloney. Here are seven reasons not to trust the polls -- along with some insights into why Big Media chieftains oppose and fear the Kerry/Edwards ticket.

"What Part of *Over the Rainbow* Do You NOT Understand?" (tags)
Mr. Kerry, who HAS been put to the challenge, but will not commit his own Democratic Party to a principled, honorable platform on the side of human needs, progress for the future and most plainly-Truth.This constrains and weakens the Party's reach. What can we People then expect him to do for America as a whole? It is our necessity to turn away from the insanity of illegal, unilateral, agressive wars against undefined enemies from poor countries.
"The Corporations Are Coming! The Corporations Are Coming!" (tags)
integrity is evidenced from his remarks in an interview about sitting in on democratic meetings and seeing what goes on, he said they make all their decisions based on polls ?? "It's Sick", he said. I have a message for these wayward writers who are taking turns, in a deliberate, orchestrated smear campaign to impugn a modern-day prophet and refuse to recognize, and hence INSULT, the burdgeoning grassroots movement arising from the awakened masses. HERE is The Message---this beautiful movement can only be delayed ,Never stopped because it has Founding Father energy and LightWorkers and healers who Love this Land and the principles of Liberty, Equality and Unity and are working very hard to co-create a New Covenant to give to posterity ! We are alive, real and in tune with the higher cause of our existence.
Missile story was a hoax. (tags)
You missed again, Mr. Ashcroft. The wildly publicized story about the Russian anti-aircraft missile seized by the FBI is another pathetic propaganda piece. Big Media conveniently omitted that the missile was provided by the Russians as "terrorist bait" in a joint operation with the FBI. All what they caught was some third-league dealer, yet the news hinted that he had terrorist connections. Somebody must be desperate for publicity. Speaking of arm dealers, this article made possible by Jane's...
