- IS THE NEOCON NIGHTMARE WINDING DOWN, OR JUST GETTING STARTED?
- ...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.
- ...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.
- 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...
- It's getting harder to cover your tracks as even the most everyday activities -- from running a Google search to using the E-Z Pass lane -- leave a lengthy digital trail.
- FBI agents in Puerto Rico on Friday searched five homes and a business to thwart what the agency said was a "domestic terrorist attack" planned by militants favoring independence for the U.S. island territory.
- Many others like Susan Elmes of Seattle have had 'physical abuse and gang stalking' tactics used against them for simply expressing their freedom of speech rights. Although spygate is a problem, FBI/CIA hired thugs are in force doing the administration's dirty work as illegal wiretapping and surveillance campaign goes on in the background.
- Peltier was arrested in Canada for a crime he did not commit--the murder of two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota in June 1975. He was illegally sent to the United States because of coerced and fraudulent testimony, and later convicted in federal court in one of the most infamous political frame-ups in modern U.S. history.
- A Cincinnati video surveillance company CityWatcher.com now requires employees to use Verichip human implantable microchips to enter a secure data centre. Until now, the employees entered the data centre with a VeriChip housed in a heart-shaped plastic casing that hangs from their keychain.
- Using cartoons, games and kid-friendly websites, the federal intelligence community is seeking to win the hearts and minds of America's children.
- The United States government is preparing for an eventual nuclear war with a determination approximating Cold War standards, but this time with an expressed preemptive first-strike option against even non-nuclear countries.
- Bootlicking news networks follow suit with dramatic images of Library Tower being destroyed
- ...customs and border operations have, like so many other functions of the federal government, been abused for political purposes by an administration that is far more committed to advancing the agenda of its corporate contributors that it is to respecting the rule of law.
- The anthrax attacks and nerve agent "scare" help to illustrate that America's enemies are inside the gates, and that they are more than willing to use scare tactics and even false flag terror methods to achieve their objectives.
- ...we no longer depend upon community and other people around us. When live in our houses, idiotically sited vinyl "Tudor-esque" fuck-boxes with brick facades...which grow bigger each year in order to accommodate our massive asses, egos and collection of goods, and we "order out." Or go shopping for it at the mall.
- Will this be the face of our new Imperial Army? Time will tell...
- While Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez assures the U.S. Senate that the Bush Administration’s domestic eavesdropping program is a vital "early warning system" for terrorists, another homeland security measure strikes at a local elementary school.
- The message is clear: If you are a government employee and you dare to criticize Dear Leader, you will be well and truly fucked.

- Asked directly by the U.S. Senate, Alberto Gonzales won't say
- Are grandma and grandpa now the newest targets in an expanding war on drugs?
- It’s easier to defame opponents using emotionally charged language than engage on real issues. Accuse them of being irrational and hateful. Ignore the substance of the claims and just sling mud. By even minimal standards of intellectual or political discourse it’s not terribly honorable, but it often works.
- Look, these ballyhooed Judiciary hearings into Bush's illegal wiretap program are just a PR clown-show from the word go -- literally.
- ...the Senate hearing will be a complete farce, and will not address any of the fundamental issues involved or lead to any check on the Bush administration.

- by Webster Griffin Tarpley - The intense international intelligence warfare pattern mandates a move to red alert -- the highest vigilance -- for the upcoming superbowl Sunday in the USA and the Turin winter Olympics, and perhaps all the way to the March 20 opening of the Iranian oil bourse, which spells the beginning of the end for six decades of world dollar hegemony.
- In the latest twist in the debate over presidential powers, a Justice Department official suggested that in certain circumstances, the president might have the power to order the killing of terrorist suspects inside the United States.
- It is nothing short of a stroke of genius to mix police state imagery in with football imagery and thus make slavery palatable to the masses.
- ...the real enemies of the state are basically the same enemies monitored, harassed, and even assassinated during the Vietnam-era and well before. Osama bin "Forgotten," al-CIA-duh, and the dim bulb patsy Mohammad Rauf are nothing more than an engineered pretext for the current clique of fascist authoritarians in the White House and the Pentagon to go after sincere threats—antiwar, anti-globalist, and patriot movement activists...
- Both law-enforcement and intelligence agencies fundamentally depend on informants. Informants in foreign intelligence are at best traitors to their respective countries. Informants in domestic crime issues are often paid, either in cash or in deals cut on crimes they have committed. Altogether, they are a sleazy lot.
- In the Bush Age, such hostility to free speech has become all too common. Students have been booted from school, shoppers from malls, protesters from Bush rallies, simply as a result of the shirts on their fronts.

- In a cheerier version of the "duck and cover" 1950s-era classroom drills that advised schoolchildren to dive under their desks in the event of nuclear attack, Homeland Security Department Secretary Michael Chertoff outlined the "Ready Kids" campaign at a Chicago elementary school library.
- What are we to make of the furore surrounding the publishing of anti-Islam cartoons by Dutch and French daily papers? The intent seems clear enough - to portray Islam, and therefore all Muslims as fanatic terrorists, and to provoke Muslim groups to confirm for the world that this portrayal is accurate...
- This is about conditioning Americans to accept the abolition of Posse Comitatus for the future military takeover of law enforcement outlined by Bush following Hurricane Katrina.
- Since 2002, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has spent a half-million dollars a year creating a database it claims is "arguably the largest repository of 16-25 year-old youth data in the country, containing roughly 30 million records."
- According to in-house memos now circulating, the DHS has issued orders to banks across America which announce to them that "under the Patriot Act" (whatever that crap means) the DHS has the absolute right to seize, without any warrant whatsoever, any and all customer bank accounts, to make "periodic and unannounced" visits to any bank to open and inspect the contents of 'selected safe deposit boxes."
- The single most striking deterioration that has happened in the United States in the last ten years or so is the loss of the right to dissent. The United States government has always done terrible things, but through it all Americans have always had the right to complain about it.

- by Cindy Sheehan - I had just sat down and I was warm from climbing 3 flights of stairs back up from the bathroom so I unzipped my jacket. I turned to the right to take my left arm out, when the same officer saw my shirt and yelled; "Protester." He then ran over to me, hauled me out of my seat and roughly (with my hands behind my back) shoved me up the stairs.
- Sometime before the 2008 presidential election, and possibly much, much sooner, the United States Government will detonate a small nuclear bomb in an American city, killing 10,000 to 100,000 civilians.
- A hand comes down again to push my chin against the concrete. By this time there are four cops on the scene. My hands are tightly cuffed behind my back. They lift me up and shove me onto a parkbench and shackle my legs. I am still calling out, telling people what this is about. One of the cops says to me, "Shut up or I will kill you!", "I am sick of this anti-Bush shit!" "You are definitely going to the psyche ward." Then somebody calls the EMS, and a fire squad shows up.
- The offense: her shirt, bearing an anti-war message and other "unlawful conduct," police said.

- Homeland Security bureaucrats just look at pornography all day, a startling new government report suggests.
- Well, somebody’s up to something again.
- Army officials are investigating allegations that members of the celebrated 82nd Airborne Division appear on a gay pornography Web site...
- Much of the problem is the media itself, which serves as a disinformation agency for the Bush administration. Fox "News" and right-wing talk radio are the worst, but with propagandistic outlets setting the standard for truth and patriotism, all of the media is affected to some degree.
- Information Operations Roadmap
- A newly declassified document gives a fascinating glimpse into the US military's plans for "information operations" - from psychological operations, to attacks on hostile computer networks.
- Color me naive, but when I hear talk of cages, detention and/or concentration camps, my mind usually wonders in devious directions. I haven't seen anywhere in history where detention centers and so forth were used as freedom enhancing tools.
- The problems with the 1997 privatization of the Office of Federal Investigations (OFI), which ultimately became U.S. Investigations Services (USIS), now owned by The Carlyle Group, were known to members of Congress, according to a former OFI official.

- Yep. I’m on the official "no-fly" list, along with some 80,000 others Americans.
- The Bush administration has expanded the special security zone around the Capitol, effectively denying a meaningful public space for a protest called by World Can’t Wait-Drive Out the Bush Regime during the State of the Union address on January 31, 2006. This action, one of many held simultaneously that night at 8pm EST in cities and towns across the country, calls for symbolically “drowning out Bush’s lies” and demands "BUSH STEP DOWN."
- Upton Sinclair had once said: "Fascism is capitalism plus murder."
- The War on Citizens has two main battles going on using drugs and terror as its primary excuses with a flanking maneuver using porn to reel in the internet. This “War” does not provide security or protection for citizens, indeed it targets them. That is us: me, you, our neighbors. Everybody is a suspect and must be watched under this system. Step out of line and you pay the consequences. Feel any safer yet?
- A provision in the "PATRIOT Act" creates a new federal police force with the power to violate the Bill of Rights. You might think that this cannot be true, as you have not read about it in newspapers or heard it discussed by talking heads on TV.
