Number One Pet Peeve

Plutonium 238 to be produced by US for 'Secret Missions'

Reckless endangering all forms of life on earth, targeting humans, but that is ok 'they' (who do not disagree, or speak out and call this outragious the ideas that pass thru the halls of Washington as policy) are pro-lifers.

Stupid White Man’s Burden

"F--k Saddam," Bush said. "We're taking him out." March 2002


The agitprop, the crude lies and the other public-relations techniques that have rallied the nation to war make the beginning of Bush’s "crusade" to rid the world of "evil" look more like the Stupid White Man’s Burden.

British and American bombing raids on Iraq in the run-up to war "to put pressure on the regime" was illegal under international law

Downing Street Memo a Growing Problem for Bush

Wonder if impeachable comes to mind?

shining a light of 'love' that thru truth will cause 'hate' to be seen for what it is, what it will always be whether draped in white or hidden in lies, just pure hate.

Watching the news evades my spare time these past few days, but I really doubt this was on any southern local national news, the Killen trials. John Sugg writes about it, you should read about it you should teach your children about it when they come of an age to understand why the littlest drop of hate is so bad. My father told me once when questioning me about something he thought I might have fibbed about, "that is ok" he said " it all comes out in the wash eventually". A good moral to the story of how much time has lapsed sense a true effort towards justice is made. I have seen this hate that infects this man and men like him, it has no ground in truth. It sinks to the bottom of everything where it belongs when a light of the truth shows its heart. Like a symbiotic creature, a parasite living within a perfectly otherwise healthy mind and body it destroys from within, destroys its host, hate does. That seed is easily passed, with a word, a gesture and spreads like pandemic when it infest our community leaders, judicial and civil governments and especially our law enforcement. Which all of Mississippi should be on trial for letting this good ol boy get by so long, with murder. They that knew, all should be on trial.

A hand gesture, that ok gesture John Sugg witnessed and wrote about, that silent hand shake, that wink and nod. The blood, the lives the good people that have lost because of this generations old secret culture of hate that thrives and lives not only in the deep south, it is everywhere. Racist hate is a kin to religious intolerance, if it is your color, your creed or your religion someone somewhere hates you for that difference.

Part I: Roses for an Unmarked Killing Field
Part II: Mississippi Editor Shows Guts in the Face of Hatred
Part III: Mississippi Surprise: Yep, He's a Klansman

I Wonder too John, we all should wonder more.

xymphora: No serial numbers

xymphora: No serial numbers

Wednesday, June 01, 2005
No serial numbers
American intelligence officers are reporting that some of the insurgents in Iraq are using recent-model Beretta 92 pistols, with a twist:
"The crucial detail is the erasure of the serial numbers. The numbers do not appear to have been physically removed. Instead, the guns seem to have come off the production line without any serial numbers, or they could have been erased with high-tech industrial technology. The lack of serial numbers suggests that the weapons were intended for intelligence operations or terrorist cells with substantial government backing."

These guns are probably from the Mossad or the CIA, or both. What we're seeing in Iraq is a national resistance against the American occupation, a resistance which is directed at the American troops and Iraqi collaborators (which include the Iraqi police). Any civilian deaths or injuries are collateral and accidental. Parallel to the resistance, we also see a concerted action by a major foreign intelligence service or services to create a civil war in Iraq by staging what appear to be sectarian attacks against specific groups in Iraq. These attacks always involve civilians and are always immediately blamed on the resistance. Occasionally these attacks are directed at foreign aid workers, exactly not the kind of people the resistance would be targeting. The attacks against civilians are used by the American authorities as evidence of the illegitimacy of the resistance. The confusion - much of it intentional - in describing what is going on is based on not distinguishing the legitimate resistance from the agents provocateurs.

Wonder why the CIA is working to arm the insurgance, to keep us there, the justification of war is lies.

Clear vision thru tears

Papiere Bitte

By Doris Colmes
06/01/05 "ICH" - - Those were the magic words of the time: “Papiere Bitte. (Translation: “Papers, Please.�) Hearing those words, even now, causes dull echoes of sounds akin to bodies hitting dirt, or bullets penetrating flesh to thud into my mind. Because, if those papers weren’t correctly in order, or, if you were a Jew sneakily present in any place (including the grocery store) which displayed the usual “NO JEWS OR DOGS ALLOWED� sign, you were dead meat--literally. And, yes, of course I’m talking about my childhood as a little Jewish kid in Nazi Germany.

No one ever forgets stench. Whether it is a long-forgotten encounter with a ripe skunk, or a ripe egg, or a ripe decomposing body, once one of those odors has been brain-documented, then even the slightest tinge of such an aroma pops back up immediately, along with the circumstances under which it first offended the nostrils.

And, that’s what’s happening now. I smell the long-forgotten skunk, the long-forgotten rot of fascism. What is happening all around can no longer be denied. . What I ran away from so desperately in 1938 is coming back full circle. Only the jack-boots have not yet arrived.

America quite literally saved my life. The love and gratitude deep in my heart for this country will never go away. But I’m scared now. Haunted by deep fear for the generations to come, who may wind up as I did – looking over their shoulders, scurrying for cover, mute with terror. And it hurts.

Think I’m some kinda elderly nut-job neurotically manufacturing dictatorship? Well, let’s look at the 82 billion dollar defense bill passed just a few weeks ago, which (with a vote tally of 100 to 0) had the Real ID Act hidden inside it. This law allows a national identification process in which each and every person in the U.S.A. will be on computer.

This ID will be based on driver’s license applications, although it isn’t just for driving. Just like the infamous “Internal Passport� of Nazi Germany, no one will need it unless needing to fly, cash checks, apply for jobs, walk the streets, enter federal buildings -- or drive. As stated in TIME magazine on May 15, 2005 , “If you are a wealthy recluse with liquid assets, it doesn’t concern you.� Everyone else better watch out! Well, maybe that wealthy recluse had better watch out also. After all, he/she might be of a forbidden religion, or of suspicious racial origin.

Legal “ID Theft� and legal “illegal surveillance?� [1][1]�The Real ID Act links driver’s licenses of all states, creating a data base including the private details of
every single U.S. citizen. It mandates that your driver’s license share a common machine-readable digital photo of you, all the better to track your every movement. It hands the federal government unfunded mandate power to dictate what data all states must collect for license holders, including everything from fingerprints to retinal scans�. And, if you don’t drive, you’ll still need to submit to the national ID card. How else, after all, will the cop who doesn’t like the shape of your face, or the fact that you are (God Forbid) wearing a turban get to arrest you? Yes, “Papiere Bitte� has come home to roost.

And, folks, that’s only the beginning. More technically sophisticated techniques will be implemented as they occur. If the Nazis had had electronic surveillance, phone bugging and all else that the Patriot Act not only condones but advises, there would have been an even tighter grip on the populace.

After all, the Patriot Act is modeled directly after Gestapo methods: Those 3:00 AM home intrusions – without warrant or reason for arrest – will get our undesirable “domestic terrorists� straight to the nearest version of Guantanamo with no need for trial. The USA is currently building thirty seven “detention centers� nationwide, and they’ll soon be filled with persons who protest too much, or are simply of the wrong nationality. After all, it worked very well in Germany , successfully eliminating Jews, Gypsies, and anyone willing to stand up, and refuse to “Hail Hitler.�

What’s next? Well, it’s already happening: The Geneva Conventions were initiated after WW II to prevent the insane war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by Nazi Germany from ever happening again. Now, with blithe disregard of all of the above, the U.S.A. not only institutes torture (not just physical, but deliberately mental and emotional) on its prisoners, but actually exports these folks to countries in which such torture is governmentally approved. What the U.S. domestic prison system has kept hidden for years, is now right out there for everyone to applaud. How long it will take before the prison guards tie together the legs of a woman in labor and then make bets on how long it will take her to die? After all, that’s what guards did for fun in Nazi Germany. Abu Ghraib, anyone?

So, you ask, “If that’s all true, why doesn’t the media expose it all?� Now, that’s such a classic example of Nazi strategy, it’s almost funny. The Nazis took over the media, folks. No newspaper published a single sentence without governmental approval, and propaganda was fed to the populace instead of news. Sound familiar? A TIME magazine article, (April, 2005), gave illustrated examples of how the current administration administers this process.

And, last but certainly not least, the Nazis took over the German government in its entirety with one simple maneuver: They simply took over the courts. You know, like it’s happening right now, today, even as we speak: Our filibuster was busted, and those neo-con activist judges are a-sittin’ on the bench, ready to take over the Supreme Court. Because, once that Supreme Court is co-opted, hey, driver’s license ID cards are gonna be the least of our worries. Ask me. I know!

Matthew Rothschild | Stripping Rumsfeld and Bush of Impunity | July 2005 issue

Matthew Rothschild Stripping Rumsfeld and Bush of Impunity July 2005 issue

Dear Friend:


Here's a sneak peek at the cover story I wrote for our July issue, "Stripping Rumsfeld and Bush of Impunity."

It has four startling findings:

1. Gonzales may have perjured himself in his January hearings.

2. Amnesty International USA and Human Rights Watch both say that there is "prima face evidence" that Rumsfeld committed war crimes for his involvement in torture policy.

3. Amnesty International USA says that there is "prima facie evidence" that Bush himself committed war crimes for same.

4. And Amnesty International USA says foreign governments should apprehend Bush and Rumsfeld and charge them with war crimes!

Please share this with as many of your friends and colleagues as possible. Feel free to distribute it far and wide.

Sincerely,


Matthew Rothschild

I listened to talk radio while I was on the road today, which was most of the day, and Amnesty International was portrayed all day as Anti-American because of these statements issued above. I say AI is not in no way Anti-American, this administration has no idea the majority of Americans hold human rights, decent treatment of prisoners as high on their list of morals, they have no inkling of the principals behind being American is. Our founding fathers wrote us a road map to a free democracy protected by the republic and the separations in principal are the foundations of that republic, they have chipped away at daily during their time in office. Your daily mind bending to the right you get dosed out each day on talk radio is obvious to skew you into thinking as they do. They repeat over and over again statements like Amnesty International is Anti-American over and over. To mind wash you into some twisted torn logic that over looks and accepts such shameful acts our government commits as Abu Grab, CIA kidnappings and torture, Gitmo and the Koran stories. One fellow don't really care who he was, some right-wing-nut even stated the Koran belonged in the toilet, makes me sick to know there is so many stupid, un-empathetic, non-ethical people walking freely in this nation once regarded as the freest nation on earth, the protector of human rights around the world, the light of liberty. No more, no more honor, no more respect will Americans see from other nations this administration with its horrors have done our reputation grave harm. With lies on top of lies washed this nation to a pit of ignorance intolerance and backward progress for the human culture around the world. No such nation should be allowed such power, speaking of the following links. If your open to finding the truth my dear friends it is out there. If you have time to read, watch and listen it can be found.

Please watch the upcoming live web broadcast of our "Reopen the 9/11 Investigation" tour. Thus far, the European tour has been a great success. We've been told by many that the information given is the most thorough accounting of the 9/11 attacks to date.

The 9/11 Events will be presented in Vienna, Austria, at the Austria Center (und Konferenzzentrum Wien,) June 1-3, at 7 p.m. local time.

Mark your calendars for our live web cast!

Forum: Wednesday June 1st, 7 p.m. live, Vienna time; 10 a.m. Pacific Time; and 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Forum/Presentations: Thursday 2nd, 7 p.m. live, Vienna time; 10 a.m. Pacific Time; 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Video Presentation: Friday, June 3rd, 7 p.m. live, Vienna time; 10 a.m. Pacific Time; 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.


TOUR PARTICIPANTS INCLUDE:
Barry Zwicker:
Filmmaker Barrie Zwicker, creator of "The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw," hails from Toronto, Canada where he was the host of a national TV show and a respected media critic. In his film, Zwicker exposes the 9/11 cover-up, which he said, became obvious to him when he saw that no air defense intervened in the two hours they had to stop the planes from crashing into the World Trade Center in New York. He saw how the Bush Administration didn't do much of anything, (Bush continued to read "My Pet Goat" to children at a school in Florida); and how there was no investigation into the crime for more than 400 days, when Kissinger, the master of many cover-ups, was initially put in charge. The 9/11 Commission Report, released years later, never addressed the most important issues of the crime. (You can purchase "The Great Conspiracy" from our online book store: https://secure.reopen911.org/catalog).

Webster Griffin Tarpley:
Webster Griffin Tarpley is an activist and historian based near Washington, DC. He is best known as the author of "George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography," (1992, reprinted 2004), which has become an underground classic since it was first posted online in October 1996. This was the first book to document the complicity of Prescott Bush, grandfather of the current tenant of the White House, in the rise of Hitler. A renowned journalist since 1972, Tarpley's most recent book is "9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in the USA," published by Progressive Press. This book contains a refutation of the 9/11 commission report, and shows how a rogue network within the US government actually concocted the September 11 events as a coup d'état, to launch a war of civilizations, the latest form of Anglo-American imperial geopolitics. (He can be reached through www.tarpley.net.)

Christopher Bollyn:
A correspondent with the American Free Press, Chris Bollyn was returning to Washington from a weekend in Vermont with his family when he passed through New York City in the early morning hours of September 11, 2001. Unable to return to Washington, the Bollyn family traveled on small roads to their home in Chicago. Bollyn immediately began writing and investigating the crimes of 9/11 and has continued his research to this day. Many key discoveries about the attacks have been uncovered through Bollyn's research.
He has also brought forth important information, previously unpublished, about the intrigue behind the sinking of the Baltic ferry Estonia (Sept. 28, 1994); as well as the devastating affects caused by the use of depleted uranium weapons by the United States armed forces.

Penny Little:
Filmmaker Penny Little is author of the new DVD "9/11: from Dust to Deceit." Little explained, when President George W. Bush came to Ground Zero two days after the 9/11 attack, he urged everyone to shop. Ironically, the expression 'Shop Till You Drop!' would have been more appropriate. In fact, the air was, as scientist Marjorie Clarke said, "Equivalent to dozens of asbestos factories, incinerators and crematoria." The White House Council on Environmental Quality changed EPA's press releases turning warnings of asbestos into reassurances. The EPA also said "The air is safe to breathe" at the World Trade Center. This information contributed to the injury and death of may NYC residents and heroes who worked at Ground Zero.
Christine Whitman, EPA administrator, and NYC Mayor Giuliani lied to New Yorkers and visitors from around the world that there were "no significant problems." Shockingly, the New York City Dept of Health told residents to clean their apartments with a wet mop or wet rag. Simply put, extremely hazardous materials became airborne when the World Trade Center disintegrated and has posed, and continues to pose, a serious health threat to people who live and work in the downtown area, not just ground Zero.

Eric Hufschmid:
Erich Hufschmid is the author of "Painful Questions: An Analysis of the September 11th Attacks" and the DVD "Painful Deceptions." He's one of the first great 9/11 Skeptics, and remains a staunch advocate for discovering the truth behind the 9/11 attacks whatever it may be. Among other questions, Hufschmid wonders how a passenger plane could have hit the pentagon and left an impression approximately half its size.

Philip J. Berg, Esquire:
After conducting research with a team of experts on the attacks on the Pentagon and the Twin Towers, Philip Berg and his team uncovered some very disturbing facts that cannot be reconciled with the information provided by the U.S. government and media. Berg has a RICO Act [Racketeer Influenced & Corrupt Organizations] lawsuit pending against President Bush, Vice President Cheney and 54 other defendants for: 1) foreknowledge of 9/11; 2) failure to warn; 3) failure to prevent; and cover-up.
At a Press Conference in Amsterdam on May 18th, attorney Berg stated, "Bush and his cronies either made 9/11 happen or let it happen." Berg continued, "It is very difficult for many to believe that the U.S. government could be involved. However, I draw your attention to 'Operation Northwoods,' a 1962 documented plan that has now been declassified, in which the joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. military called for the military to destroy American property and to injure and kill American citizens on airplanes, blaming it on Cuba, in order to win support for a war against Cuba. President John F. Kennedy said 'No.' But, if you change the words from Cuba to Iraq, you have the same situation."
Berg concluded: "I know many of you recall Golfer Payne Stewart. His plane was off course and fighter jets were called out to check on Stewart's plane -- as fighter jets did 62 times in the year prior to 9/11. They saw no evidence of life and followed it to South Dakota, where it crashed. Likewise just a week ago, on May 11, 2005, when a small plane wandered off course toward the White House, it was intercepted within minutes by fighter planes. Now, question: Where were the fighter jets on 9/11?"

William Rodriguez:
Rodriguez is a 9/11 hero who rescued many victims from the WTC, where he was a janitor in the North Tower. He accompanied firemen up the fire-tower and let them onto the floors with a master key. For his acts of heroism, President Bush honored Rodriguez at the White House.
Later, however, Rodriguez realized that the "official" story was a lie. Rodriguez heard "explosions" in the North Tower before the building fell, confirming the 2+ Richter scale seismic recordings prior to the fall of each tower. Rodriguez was the last person out of the North Tower and is alive today because he dove under a fire truck. Like thousands of others, he still suffers from health problems brought on by the conditions at the WTC (disproving another Bush administration claim: EPA Administrator Christy Todd Whitman came to the WTC site on 9/13/01 and said all was well).

Jimmy Walter--the tour's sponsor and organizer, together with this acclaimed panel of scientists, filmmakers, and journalists--is currently on tour through major cities in Europe for panel discussions of the 9/11 attacks. The aim of the tour is to point out new non-truths with regard to the investigation as spread by the media directly after the attacks, and to raise awareness about the topic and plan to launch a "true" 9/11 investigation.

This is just a little taste of what you will see when you tune in and watch the event on June 1, 2, and 3!

Also, we have added a new location to our Rome tour! We will be in Rome, Italy, in June. See our homepage for more information: http://www.reopen911.org.

A Quote from an audience member: "These people are great, I wasn't convinced until I saw them in The Netherlands."

Just as the Bush administration justifies taking your liberties, human rights negations, torture, WAR it starts way back there, that dark day in America when our president select ignored the news america was being attacked, when Chaney preset our defenses into war games to confuse, and minion workers destroyed the world trade center, the pentagon and murdered near 3000 American citizens. Our own president and his men are murders, mass murderers, murder for profit of themselves, family, friends and associates.
