The Neocons’ Ties to the 9/11 Commission’s Report (tags)

There was little chance that the 9/11 Commission was going to establish the full truth. One reason why: Its Executive Director, the Neocon-loving Philip D. Zelikow, had his own agenda, to wit: protecting the interest of the Bush-Cheney Gang and linking “Al-Qaeda to Iraq.” Zelikow had previously written a book with Condi Rice, authored a paper used to justify the preemptive attack on Iraq and worked on Bush’s presidential transition team in 2000/2001.

ICTS evecutive Menachem Atzmon was even convicted in his own country of Israel for the equivalent of money laundering between Israeli government accounts Ariel Sharon's and his own Likud Party.And then the U.S. government allowed him and his far right Israeli partners to enter the U.S. and set up a stock 'securities' scam on the NASDAQ that defrauded American investors in order to buy Huntleigh airport rent-a-cops corp that conveniently had the contract to guard Boston's Logan Airport PRE 9/11 !

Researcher Resepen@yahoo.com Sometimes referred to as the “Hate Bill”, Senate number S.1145, if passed will bring TYRANNY to America. President Bush (reacting to Mrs. Mier’s nomination) had the audacity to say, it matters not what the American people think, it matters what Congress does. Please cut and past this letter and send it to your Senators. A closer look at the Bill shows it would end political dissent, and makes jail a possibility for others with different religious beliefs.

Revolutionary Communists Take on Christian Fascists Over Schiavo (tags)

"One thing that God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo to elevate the visibility of what's going on in America."

Tom DeLay, Congressman from Texas, House Republican Majority Leader,
speaking to his co-thinkers of "Family Research Council"

Tom DeLay is a powerful right-winger who wraps his ambitions in a frenzied god-speak. He is the cynical manipulator, who redistricted Texas to disenfranchise political opponents, and is now rewriting congressional ethics procedures to rescue himself from his own colossal corruption. He is an aggressive liar, who recently dared describe Terri Schiavo as "lucid."

But, for a half second there among allies, he let out something true.

This huge national power struggle over Terri Schiavo's fate has, in fact, elevated the visibility of what's going on in America.

With all that the Bush administration does or does not do, it is remarkable that no one in the progressive community has yet bothered to do an astrological analysis of the charts of its key members. Here, therefore, I remedy this appalling failure on the part of the progressive press. Whether you believe in astrology or not, this analysis should provide you with some interesting insights into the characters of and relationships between the members of the Bush crew.

WILL FALLUJAH BE USA'S LIDICE (town leveled by Nazis to avenge SS officer)? (tags)

Paul Bremer, the U.S. Protector of Iraq, has promised reprisals for the "murder" of four "civilian contractors" in Fallujah, Iraq. U.S. officials have called the killings "ghoulish." Beware another Lidice -- the Czech village liquidated and leveled by the German Nazis in 1942 to pay back the killing by Czech patriots of Reinhard Heydrich, chief of the occupation of Czechoslovakia. About "ghoulish," remember that President Bush's grandfather robbed the grave of Apache chief Geronimo and took his skull to Yale's Skull and Bones Society, to which both President Bushes belonged, where it was (and still may be) used in rituals. Let's don't get too self-righteous or bloodthirsty.

The fallacy of the 'anybody but Bush' movement (tags)

Just because Bush is a reactionary, that does not make Kerry a progressive.

G.W.Bush. a Satanic mind. (tags)

Assassination is big business. It is the business of the CIA and any other power that can pay for the "hit" and control the assured getaway. The CIA brags that its operations in Iran in 1953 led to the pro-Western attitude of that important country. The CIA also takes credit for what it calls the "perfect job" in Guatemala. Both successes were achieved by assassination. What is this assassination business and how does it work? Col. L. Fletcher Prouty . Col. Prouty spent 9 of his 23 year military career in the Pentagon (1955-1964): 2 years with the Secretary of Defense, 2 years with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and 5 years with Headquarters, U.S. Air Force. In 1955 he was appointed the first "Focal Point" officer between the CIA and the Air Force for Clandestine Operations per National Security Council Directive 5412. He was Briefing Officer for the Secretary of Defense (1960-1961), and for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Big Brother (tags)

. In the New York Times (October 14, 2002), Leslie Wayne described how a very old war praxis is revived in the pentagon with the war against terror: the hiring of mercenaries. Today they are called “private military contractors”. Some of these mercenary firms are sub-contractors of corporations from the Fortune 500 list (the 500 largest in assets). “The Pentagon cannot wage war without them… Private military contractors are the new business face of war.” These agencies have their people in Bosnia, Nigeria, Macedonia, Colombia and elsewhere. MPRI, one of the leading military firms, boasts of “more generals per square foot than the Pentagon”. In peace times, they can carry out secret missions with the exclusion of the public. Without any chain of command, they are not accountable to the US Congress, only to their clients, the Pentagon or the State Department.

Once again, Mr. Ashcroft has utterly missed the point. As many commentators have patiently tried to explain to him--we must, after all, talk to him as one talks to a punch-drunk fighter--the point is not whether federal authorities have yet started checking what we read; the point is that the U.S. Patriot Act gives those authorities the right to monitor what we read. Giving anyone that right is exactly what’s wrong, Mr. Ashcroft. If we are hysterics, then you, sir, are a dangerous dimwit.

Media walk on Ashcroft's leash (tags)

On March 1, give or take a day, in Columbus, Ohio, the FBI arrested an American citizen it says is Iyman Faris. There wasn't a word uttered. He vanished. No lawyer was notified. He made no phone calls and wrote no letters. He was a U.S. citizen who disappeared without a trace into a secret metal world.

Our Brave Soldiers Fight Ignoble Wars for Cowards (tags)

Our dead young American soldiers are fighting for some very wealthy individuals who think they know how to rule the world. These power mongers use their wealth to create policy and their policy to create more wealth. Their policy is brutal. They think nothing of killing 10,000 innocent civilians (almost entirely Muslim) and destroying their lands with the most lethal of weapons of mass destruction so that they can exploit their natural resources and gain a stronghold in the Middle East by establishing a permanent military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan- in the heart of Islam, oil and five of the worlds nuclear nations.

Homeland Security: When The Phoenix Came Home To Roost (tags)

In order to institutionalize his "legally criminal" social structure, Bush signed the Homeland Security Act on 25 November 2002, creating the Department of Homeland Security under former Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Ridge. The Department's job is to coordinate the anti-terror elements of dozens of federal agencies, and secure the US "from terrorist threats or attacks," be they genuine or provoked by the Bush Régime for black propaganda purposes.

Government moves to make Patriot Act permanent (tags)

Congressional push to remove the sunset provisions from the Patriot Act some time before 2005. If the govt. truly seeks to make this country safer it should stop bombing innocent people around the world in its push for greater world hegemony. No amount of spying will create peace and safety in that climate.

Block Patriot Act II (tags)

Help stop Ashcroft's "Patriot Act II," which would gut freedoms of speech and assembly, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, the right to due process, and much more. The law would principally harm non-citizens. For information on upcoming events around LA, contact mim136@mim.org.

I love the USA (tags)

As a leftist, I'm getting just a bit weary of hearing how much I "hate America." Ever since the big you-know-what in late 2001, that little zinger has been the comeback of choice for any objections to US foreign policy. Don't like our new wars? Gee, you must really hate this country.

Impeachment as an anti-war strategy (tags)

After 9-11 Bush remarked, 'it looks like I hit the trifecta' and someone was so offended by his out of place remark that they leaked it to the media. Note that a 'trifecta' connotates something that you gamble on. Bush's August 6, 2001 briefing memo was titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike U.S." Sometimes the mainstream media can really surprise a person, as the piece quoted here demonstrates...

Who is going to crush the Kurds? (tags)

After just listening to the Bush speech on Monday evening, and his appeal to Iraqi Republican Guard units to give up without a fight, I am led to ask the question, 'Who is going to crush the Kurds of Iraq' after Saddam is gone from the scene, and the answer would appear to be the Republican Guard, if they should be turned by the Americans.

Martinez Family to Hold Protest Against Downey Police Shooting of Their Unarmed Son (tags)

Seven months ago a videotape captured Gonzalo Martinez's encounter with the Downey police. The tape ended as police fired with handguns and a machine gun, killing Martinez, 26, and spraying shots through a residential neighborhood. Martinez had his hands in the air and was unarmed. For the last seven months, the Martinez family has led protests outside Downey City Hall. The FBI and the Los Angeles County district attorney's office are investigating but no charges against any police officers have been filed.

COUPWATCH: Ashcroft Preserved Racially Discriminatory Voter Registration (tags)

As governor, Ashcroft twice vetoed measures passed overwhelmingly by the Missouri legislature to authorize volunteer deputy registrars from nonpartisan organizations to register voters in the city of St. Louis, which was about 50% black. Such deputies were allowed in suburban St. Louis County, which had 81% voter registration compared to 73% in the city.

FAIR Media Advisory: Southern Partisan: "Setting the Record Straight" (tags)

"Your magazine also helps set the record straight. You've got a heritage of doing that, of defending Southern patriots like [Gen.] Robert E. Lee, [Gen.] Stonewall Jackson and Confederate President] Jefferson Davis...." --John Ashcroft. FAIR provides a sampling of other quotes to show just what Ashcroft was talking about.

COUP WATCH: Restoring the Confederacy -- From Red Rock Eater News Service (tags)

The movement to restore the Confederacy is really picking up steam. John Ashcroft's alliance with a wide range of far-right groups is but the tip of the iceberg. I was particularly struck by Gale Norton's comments lamenting the defeat of the Confederacy. Is she advocating the restoration of slavery? Probably not. But she is certainly part of the movement to undo the legal reforms that overthrew Jim Crow.
