February 14, 2006

Iran - Disinformation Phobia - Propaganda designed to target Iran as the greatest threat to the world is just the latest sequel in the machinated melodrama of the evil empire. Make no mistake about it, the imperialists of internationalism are the cause of global insanity.

The Republican Propaganda Machine - All governments play with words and ideas, spinning things their way. But the Bush administration is the first to bathe America in a sewer of propaganda...Consider the following egregious examples of propaganda...

Oil and Water: Life in the Bush Imperium - Two stories, same front page of the New York Times, that tell you just about all you need to know about the priorities of American society under the Bush Imperium...

Goodbye Iraq, hello Afghanistan - Saddam Hussein shouts "Down with Bush" in the heart of the Green Zone, British soldiers beat up barefoot Iraqi teenagers and US Vice President Dick Cheney is out shooting people (not Iraqis; a fellow American, and a campaign contributor to boot). Cutting right across this theater of the absurd, Iraqi politicians have manufactured their own, choosing a new prime minister who happens not to be that new.

Who Will Possess Iraq’s Oilfields? - Oil driving Iraq policies

Authoritarian Rule Britannia - Britain is currently teetering on the brink of a huge political shift. As far as the Blair era has gone in transforming this country into a paranoid, uncommunicative, culturally starved, spin controlled Orwellian style authoritarian state, things are about to be taken to a whole new level.

Secret Service stalls and delays for Cheney - Saturday night at least one deputy showed up at the ranch's front gate and asked to speak to Cheney but was turned away by the Secret Service...This sort of delaying tactic is indicative of drunk-driving hit and runs by rich kids allowing the necessary time to sober up, contact your attorney and get your story straight.

Vicente Fox vs. Latin America - Bush's Mexican Poodle

Indian Villages For Sale - Rural indebtedness has reached such alarming proportions that village communities are being forced to sell not only their body organs but also their lands - willing to lose control over their only means of economic security.

Debunking Conspiracy Theorists: Paranoid Fantasies About 9-11 Detract From Real Issues - One of the wilder stories circulating about Sept 11, and one that has attracted something of a cult following amongst conspiracy buffs is that it was carried out by 19 fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, with no apparent motivation other than that they "hate our freedoms."

February 15, 2006

US urged to free Aljazeera journalist - Al-Hajj has been held at Guantanamo Bay since 2002

Able Danger witness cut deal with Bush White House - Chickenhawk Congressman Curt Weldon has been using the Able Danger story as a pretext for the reestablishement of a strong, permanent, legally-acknowledged "data-mining" program to use supercomputers to spy on America and Americans.

Shooting Whittington: the Least of Cheney’s Crimes - I don’t care if the war criminal Dick Cheney shot one of his rich Republican friends.

Ghraib New Images - New graphic evidence of torture at Abu Ghraib has been leaked to the Australian TV show Dateline. Watch a video montage here.

How the corporate media promotes war - Imperial cheerleading-as-reporting...

Quick Rise for Purveyors of Propaganda in Iraq - Although Lincoln Group's work in Iraq is now under scrutiny in two Pentagon investigations, the firm is hunting for more government work. Last month, Mr. Bailey attended a going-away reception at the Virginia condominium of a mid-level government employee on her way to a new job at the American Embassy in Baghdad. Her job: overseeing contracts.

"Made in the USA" election crisis in Haiti - The political crisis ignited by the prolonged delay in announcing the results of the February 7 election has brought the impoverished Caribbean country to the brink of civil war. There are strong indications that this is precisely the intention of the US-backed figures from within Haiti’s right-wing political class who control the ballot tabulation.

Bush appointees censor scientists at government agencies - Corporate interests that support the Bush government, such as the coal and oil industries, are hostile to any research that could obstruct their drive for profits—in particular, evidence that emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere at the current rate will lead to an environmental and ecological disaster in the coming decades.

Alito Hires as a Clerk Former Ashcroft Aide - With the future of the Internet in danger its comforting to know a vice president at AOL-Time Warner Inc. is working with Justice Alito. I have faith that he will be help Alito to maintain a completely unbiased outlook form his close workings with John Ashcroft. The good news keeps on coming in.

The great tsunami, the giant wave that will change our lifestyles forever - A long-predicted tsunami is heading toward the shores of America, a wave of incredible proportions, gathering momentum with each passing day. America has had many, many warnings of how this giant wave would develop, but these warnings have been totally ignored. Very soon our American society will experience an extremely painful awakening to the dark specter of "Peak Oil" as it looms on our horizon and then comes crashing down upon our nation.

The propaganda we pass off as news around the world - A British government-funded fake TV news service allows mild criticism of the US - all the better to support it.

Before lobbying scandals, Abramoff group had hand in apartheid wars - This early period in Abramoff's career has been largely ignored in most of the American media. It was the period in which he began building relations with tribal people, a practice he would parlay into serving as a very well-compensated lobbyist for American Indian tribes in the lucrative gambling industry.

Michael Chertoff: The Master of Disaster - He was...the New Jersey attorney who guided the investigation and criminal trial of the Arabs involved in the first "terror" attack on the World Trade Center of 1993. This "false flag" operation was designed to form the impression in the minds of Americans that Arabs were targeting the WTC twin towers, so that when 9-11 happened it would be assumed by the world that Arabs were behind the terror attacks.

Costa Rica - Regardless of the final outcome, Solís' surprise showing has important implications for the course of Latin America and U.S.-Latin American relations. First, it shows how deep the electorate's dissatisfaction is with the status quo in the region, and with the "Washington Consensus" - or "neoliberal" economic policies as it is more commonly labeled in Latin America.

Hurricane Katrina; "National Failure" or Criminal Negligence - The senate investigation of Hurricane Katrina is turning out to be another White House whitewash. The senate strategy has been to characterize the Bush administration’s response as "a national failure" or "bureaucratic bungling" when in fact the evidence proves that the top officials in the administration, including George Bush himself, are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of New Orleans residents.

Trapped in the Iron Triangle: Total control - ...all the while, semi-conscious people watch the managed news on TV, listen to speeches by the president or the lackeys in his cabinet, and obediently give their tacit approval to announcements of more invasions, more occupations, more domestic spying, more sacrifices, more spending----all sounding so logical, so necessary, so innocent.

Hidden history of US germ testing - ...it wasn't just the white coat volunteers and sailors who were subject to experiments. Scientists used what they thought was a harmless simulant in major bio-weapon tests across US cities and on public transport.

325,000 Names on Terrorism List - The National Counterterrorism Center maintains a central repository of 325,000 names of international terrorism suspects or people who allegedly aid them, a number that has more than quadrupled since the fall of 2003, according to counterterrorism officials.

What Cheney's blast revealed: A new White House lobbying scandal - Her name is Katharine Armstrong -- whose family owns the Texas ranch where Cheney shot his 78-year-old friend, Harry Whittington, on Saturday. What has received virtually no attention in all the shooting hoopla is that the wealthy ranch heiress is also a lobbyist -- a lobbyist who goes quail hunting with the vice president and spends leisurely summer days with the leader of the free world at his ranch in Crawford.

"Even Jobs at McDonald's Aren't Safe" - Consumers deeper in debt and fresh from their first negative savings rate since the Great Depression show high consumer confidence. It is as if the entire country is on an acid trip or a cocaine trip or whatever it is that lets people create realities for themselves that bear no relation to real reality.

FBI Home Invasions in Puerto Rico - When the FBI decided to violently invade the homes of hard-working, well-respected men and women, individuals loved and admired in their communities, they did it because the victims of their abuse are independentistas who believe in the right of Puerto Ricans to be free from colonialism.

Reporting Iraq: Liberation's Limits: "accidental" deaths of independent journalists - Whilst foreign correspondents killed, kidnapped and disappeared in Iraq makes world headlines, their Arab and Iraqi colleagues are largely forgotten.

Flamethrowers - ...a militarist state must have war: to justify its draconian rule (and those $550 billion "defense" budgets), to find new fields for dominion and swag, and to seal with blood its illegitimate compact with the people, seeking to make them complicit in its crimes, which are committed in their name, for their "security." Fortunately for the militarists, Bush has promised war in abundance.

The Long War — George Bush’s War Without End - "A Long War" and "Global Terrorism" are malleable phrases that can be applied to any situation in which a local populace seeks redress against the international organizations and multi-national corporations that control the levers of the world economy.

Scientific Evidence that Official 9/11 Story is a Lie - From all the evidence provided by film cameras, audio recorders, witnesses and pictures, the only conclusion we have left is that the three buildings WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7 were brought down with controlled demolition. And I believe that if this attack with the same means were conducted by real terrorists from other countries, this would have been the official government explanation! As long as the government doesn't answer the serious questions people have, or come up with a real good and fitting explanation, they remain suspected of having commited these acts themselves...

February 18, 2006

Land of the Puppet People - We are trained to live to work, not work to live, sacrificing love of life for love for the Almighty dollar, becoming worker bees and soldier ants, selling our souls to the demons of capitalism in exchange for the happiness and stress-free lives of yesteryear, needing pharmaceutical drugs to escape the depression of our daily lives, willingly choosing to indebt our present and future in order to possess the vast array of adult toys marketed to manipulate our emotions, wrongly thinking this or that product will reincarnate lost happiness. America is the land of plenty, where waistlines expand, stress increases, mental problems grow, work hours increase and vehicles get bigger and bigger...

Traitorous bitches and bastards - ...freedom died this week and just about every one of the bitches and bastards who "serve" in Congress should take a long, hard look at the blood on their hands.

Tactical Use of Genocide in Sudan and the Five Lakes Region - If nations of the world agreed that a verifiable genocide were occurring, it would allow the U.S. to occupy Sudan and gain its assets. There is profit for the U.S. in deciding that Sudan’s Government has committed genocide.

WWIII or Bust: Implications of a US Attack on Iran - So the white-knuckle ride to war continues, with the administration’s goals in Iran very clear. Recklessly naïve and impetuous perhaps, but clear: stop the petro-euro oil bourse, take over Khuzestan Province (which borders Iraq and has 90% of Iran’s oil) and secure the Straits of Hormuz in the process. As US politician Newt Gingrich recently put it, Iranians cannot be trusted with nuclear technology, and they also "cannot be trusted with their oil."
