Who decides what is hate and what isn't?
Holocaust Now Blog

THE DRUDGE REPORT is at this moment linking to two stories that by themselves aren't very interesting, but when taken together are most revealing.

Let's start with the story titled Young Singers Spread Racist Hate. It's about a pair of twin 13-year-old girls who call themselves Prussian Blue and who sing about white nationalism, or, at least that's what the story claims they sing about, and it's laced with captions like "Teaching Hate" or "A Taste for Hate" that suggest that the writer/producer really wants us to believe that these are really very hateful 13-year-old girls.

The only thing is, they can't really make the case for that. There is this quote, attributed to one of the girls, which reads:

"We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white," said Lynx. "We want our people to stay white … we don't want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race."

Is that hate?

I ask because DRUDGE links to another story on the same page titled Palm Beach County: 'More Jewish' than N.Y., from which it can be quoted:

If Jews can assert their heritage by going to a show at the Kravis featuring a Jewish comedian or by enjoying a bowl of matzo-ball soup at their local deli, they may not feel the need to join a synagogue, local Jewish leaders say. Add to that the challenges the religion has faced in recent decades from interfaith marriages.

Clearly, the desire is being expressed here that Jews continue to marry other Jews.

Prussian Blue expresses the desire that whites marry whites. So that's hate. But when Jews express a desire that Jews marry Jews, that isn't hate?

Nor is it hate when Israel, the Jewish state, passes legislation aimed at preventing Muslims marrying Jews?

Nor is it hate when foreigners who work in Israel are forced to agree to not have sex with Jews? [...]

The Prussian Blue story is by ABC News. The President of ABC News is David Westin, who is a Jew. ABC News of course is owned by The Disney Corp. The President of Disney is Robert Iger. Who is a Jew. The Chairman of the Board at Disney is still Michael Eisner. Who is a Jew as well.

A news organization that answers exclusively to Jews sees hatred in one race expressing a desire to foster "racial identity", but declines to see the same when their own express the very same desire.

Comment: If at this point you are thinking: "I knew it! This is one of them thar anti-Semitic alternative news sites!" then please just hang in there and continue reading, because we are NOT anti-Semitic, and he makes a very good point that you might miss if you stop now...

It's worth noting that Matt Drudge is Jewish as well.

Comment: That Matt Drudge is Jewish is not the good point we mentioned above. Keep going...

If by white nationalism the producers means white supremacy, then yes, I agree that the implication of such an agenda must be considered hateful. [...]

So, getting back to hatred for a moment, if a white supremacist is somebody who believes that God meant for white people to rule this land and that therefore they are entitled to use violence to drive all others from it, doesn't that then mean we should describe those Jews who advance the notion of the Jewish state - as opposed to a Jewish homeland - as Jewish supremacists?

Comment: Note that the author has no problem with a Jewish homeland. He finds nothing wrong with a religious or ethnic group having a place to call home. His gripe is with those who currently control Israel - the Zionists, who are considered even by many Jews to be anything but Jewish in the true sense of the religion - who use manipulation and deception to control and kill Muslims while deceiving the Jewish population at large.

They see that land as being given to them by God, and that therefore they have the right to use violence against all others who would stake claim to it, do they not?

Somebody please, tell me... what is the difference?

Why is the hatred expressed by Jewish supremacists [read:Zionists] any less offensive than that expressed by white supremacists?

And how do Jews in the media here in America get away with continually pointing at white hatred while never paying any attention to Jewish hatred in Israel, even though it can be reasonably argued that it is the reason we've been made to fight this so-called war on terror? [...]

Who decides what is hate and what isn't?

People who have the moral clarity to see it and the personal courage to speak out when they do.

Comment: To find out more about the huge difference between Zionists and Jews, read this article. As for the author's comment that Jewish hatred in Israel can be reasonably argued to be the reason that we're in the war on terror, think about the fact that many of the Neocons in the US administration have dual US and Israeli citizenship while you read this article that discusses the evidence of Mossad involvement in 9/11.

In his January 28, 2003 State of the Union Speech, President Bush uttered 16 words that have since come back to haunt him. "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." [...]

This quote came from a document issued by Number 10 Downing Street titled, "Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction: The assessment of the British Government".

This document has since become more widely known as the "Dodgy Dossier" following exposure that it was written from plagiarized student thesis papers. In one case, information in the Dodgy Dossier was 12 years old, dating from before the UN sanctions on Iraq, hopelessly outdated and obsolete, but included because it portrayed Iraq as heavily armed with banned weapons. Prime Minister Tony Blair has since apologized for this document. [...]

Following Bush's speech repeating the Niger claim that Wilson knew to be false, Wilson went public, writing an op-ed piece in the New York Times in July of 2003 that exposed the claim as deceptive.

As part of a campaign to discredit Wilson and prevent him from further exposing the truth of the matter, Joe's wife, Valerie Plame was revealed as a CIA operative. [...]

Originally, George Bush tried to dump the blame for the Niger claim on the CIA's George Tenet. The CIA then demanded an investigation into the outing of Plame. Then Attorney General John Ashcroft stalled for months, then handed the investigation to Patrick Fitzgerald.

However, months before Joe Wilson's article appeared, the International Atomic Energy Agency had examined the documents which had surfaced in Italy purporting to document the sale of uranium to Iraq and determined that they were forgeries, and indeed, very clumsy ones.

This is the scandal behind the scandal. The outing of Valerie Plame was not done out of revenge, or as the Washington Post reports, part of a feud between Karl Rove and the CIA. Joe Wilson's article started to focus attention on the fact that the documents used to claim that Iraq was buying uranium from Niger were fakes!

The fact that the Niger documents were fake is hard proof that the lies that tricked this nation into war were not an accident, not "misinterpreted" or "bad" intelligence, but deliberate falsehood with malice aforethought. We The People were lied to intentionally to trick us into supporting a war of conquest against an innocent nation that had done us no wrong.

Where did the forgeries come from?

The documents had first surfaced in Italy, and in July, 2005 the Italian Parliament released a report naming four men as the likely forgers of the documents. Michael Ledeen, Dewey Clarridge, Ahmed Chalabi and Francis Brookes. Ahmed Chalabi is the former bank embezzler who was at one time expected to lead Iraq in the post-Saddam period.

Of the remaining men, Michael Ledeen deserves special note. Shortly befo0re the forged documents surfaced in Italy, Michael Ledeen paid a visit to the head of Italy's secret service, SISMI. Ledeen's entourage included Larry Franklin, since exposed as a spy for Israel operating in the Pentagon Office of Special Plans, an operational partner to the White House Iraq Group charged with "selling" the war in Iraq to the American people. Larry Franklin has confessed to handing classified information to AIPAC, the Israeli lobby. Presumably the information went from AIPAC to Israel. Less discussed is what disinformation flowed back from Israel through AIPAC, to Larry Franklin. What is known is that the claims regarding Iraq's weapons of mass destruction that came from the Office of Special Plans were as groundless as the claim that Iraq was buying uranium from Niger.

Larry Franklin is not alone in handing classified documents to Israel. Larry's boss at the DPB, Richard Perle, likewise was caught giving classified information to Israel in 1970.

Yet another official caught handing America's secrets to Israel is Michael Ledeen himself, as a result of which he (briefly) lost his security clearance.

Ledeen was hired by Douglas Feith to start up the Office of Special Plans. As a side note, it was Michael Ledeen who arranged Jonathan Pollard's job with the US Navy, which led to US Nuclear Deterrent Secrets being given to Israel, who in turn traded them to the Russians for increased emigration quotas.

The exploding Plame-gate scandal is more than just the illegal outing of a CIA agent and her associates. It is more than just the shutting down of Brewster Jennings & Associates, leaving the US without a means to track foreign nuclear weapons. It is more than the extent to which the people of the United States were lied to in order to trick them into a war. Running through every single aspect of this horrible mess are the clear traces of a foreign spy operation that has infiltrated the government of the United States to the highest levels and subverted the nation to the purposes of that foreign government.

As of this typing, the men who gave classified information to Israel are still in their positions. AIPAC, the Israeli lobby implicated in the spy scandal, still donates money to US politicians. US Politicians, more damning still, continue to take it.

Americans are the victims of the greatest and most deadly hoax in history; lied into a war of conquest. As we are Americans, and as we are at heart moral and just people, we cannot allow a single person who took part in that lie to remain in a position of authority or public trust, whether in government or in the media.

Comment: We think that all readers ought to print this article, send it by snail mail to Patrick Fitzgerald and their own congressman, and add that We, the People, demand an open investigation into ALL aspects of this scandal.

Republicans Testing Ways to Blunt Leak Charges
New York Times
October 24, 2005

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 - With a decision expected this week on possible indictments in the C.I.A. leak case, allies of the White House suggested Sunday that they intended to pursue a strategy of attacking any criminal charges as a disagreement over legal technicalities or the product of an overzealous prosecutor.

Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the special counsel in the case, is expected to announce by the end of the week whether he will seek indictments against White House officials in a decision that is likely to be a defining moment of President Bush's second term. The case has put many in the White House on edge.

Karl Rove, the senior White House adviser, and I. Lewis Libby Jr., who is Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, have been advised that they are in serious legal jeopardy. Other officials could also face charges in connection with the disclosure of the identity of an undercover C.I.A. officer in 2003.

On Sunday, Republicans appeared to be preparing to blunt the impact of any charges. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Republican of Texas, speaking on the NBC news program "Meet the Press," compared the leak investigation with the case of Martha Stewart and her stock sale, "where they couldn't find a crime and they indict on something that she said about something that wasn't a crime." [...]

Comment: They're comparing possible treason to Martha Stewart's stock sale?? They really ARE worried!!

But allies of the White House have quietly been circulating talking points in recent days among Republicans sympathetic to the administration, seeking to help them make the case that bringing charges like perjury mean the prosecutor does not have a strong case, one Republican with close ties to the White House said Sunday. Other people sympathetic to Mr. Rove and Mr. Libby have said that indicting them would amount to criminalizing politics and that Mr. Fitzgerald did not understand how Washington works. [...]

Comment: Criminalizing politics... They're really stretching to come up with some defense, aren't they?

A weakened White House, he said, could lead to further infighting among the conservatives who provide most of Mr. Bush's legislative, grass-roots and financial support, and could leave the administration with even less political clout to sway Democrats in Republican-leaning states to back Mr. Bush's agenda. [...]

Comment: The conservative gang has already been weakened. Numerous conservatives were none too happy with Bush's choice of Harriet Miers, and now they are all sitting around waiting for the axe to drop with the impending indictments.

Right Wingers Getting Nervous as Miers' Role in Bush Corruption Unfolds
by Rob Kall

An army of skeletons thought hidden deep in the recesses of Texas closests are coming to life as a result of Bush's nomination of longtime crony and protectress, Harriet Miers.

Jerome Corsi, right wing author of Unfit for Command – Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry has written an extensive series of articles attacking George W. BUsh's Miers Supreme Court nomination. This is one right wing extremist who knows the danger of opening an old can of worms. While an honest, a-political person might want to see corruption uncovered and exposed, Mr. Cosi suggests "It's time for the President to withdraw this dreadful nomination or, if politics dictate, Harriet Miers to withdraw herself from consideration," arguing " so we might avoid another long, painful, and needless examination of old matters that probably would be better off never exhumed. [...]

On October 18th, Bush brought in two Texas judges to support his nomination of Miers, CNN reported what one of them, Judge John hill had to say:

"Mr. President, we just all want to thank you for this nomination," said John Hill Jr., a Democrat who was chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court from 1985 to 1988 and served with Miers on the Texas Lottery Commission.

"We are excited about it, and we are here to try and let the people of America know what we all know, which is that she is an absolutely fantastic person and a great lawyer and will make a great judge," he said.

"We actually know Harriet Miers; I hope that still counts for something, somewhere," Hill said. "I'd trust her with my wife and my life."

Putting Judge Hill's potentially crooked connection with the Texas lottery corruption cover-up puts his exuberant endorsement of Miers in a very different context. He was, and possibly still is her partner in her law firm and possibly in a criminal coverup.

Drinking the Kool-Aid
W. Patrick Lang
Middle East Policy Council

Col. Lang is president of Global Resources, Inc. and former defense intelligence officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

Throughout my long service life in the Department of Defense, first as an army officer and then as a member of the Defense Intelligence Senior Executive Service, there was a phrase in common usage: "I will fall on my sword over that." It meant that the speaker had reached a point of internal commitment with regard to something that his superiors wanted him to do and that he intended to refuse even though this would be career suicide. The speaker preferred career death to the loss of personal honor.

This phrase is no longer widely in use. What has taken its place is far more sinister in its meaning and implications. "I drank the Kool-Aid" is what is now said. Those old enough to remember the Jonestown tragedy know this phrase all too well. [...]

What does drinking the Kool-Aid mean today? It signifies that the person in question has given up personal integrity and has succumbed to the prevailing group-think that typifies policymaking today. This person has become "part of the problem, not part of the solution."

What was the "problem"? The sincerely held beliefs of a small group of people who think they are the "bearers" of a uniquely correct view of the world, sought to dominate the foreign policy of the United States in the Bush 43 administration, and succeeded in doing so through a practice of excluding all who disagreed with them. Those they could not drive from government they bullied and undermined until they, too, had drunk from the vat.

What was the result? The war in Iraq. It is not anything like over yet, and the body count is still mounting. As of March 2004, there were 554 American soldiers dead, several thousand wounded, and more than 15,000 Iraqis dead (the Pentagon is not publicizing the number). The recent PBS special on Frontline concerning Iraq mentioned that senior military officers had said of General Franks, "He had drunk the Kool-Aid." Many intelligence officers have told the author that they too drank the Kool-Aid and as a result consider themselves to be among the "walking dead," waiting only for retirement and praying for an early release that will allow them to go away and try to forget their dishonor and the damage they have done to the intelligence services and therefore to the republic.

What we have now is a highly corrupted system of intelligence and policymaking, one twisted to serve specific group goals, ends and beliefs held to the point of religious faith. Is this different from the situation in previous administrations? Yes. The intelligence community (the information collection and analysis functions, not "James Bond" covert action, which should properly be in other parts of the government) is assigned the task of describing reality. [...]

Without objective facts, decisions are based on subjective drivel. Wars result from such drivel. We are in the midst of one at present. [...]

Comment: You see, the military and intelligence people tightly woven into the war on terror were not consciously involved - they were all fooled by the civilian administration! Guess what comes next if the fabric of lies comes unraveled by the indictment and prosecution of top Bush administration officials?

Daryl Bradford Smith interviews John Kaminski

Kaminski attended the October 2005 meeting in New York City where Scott Ritter promoted the idea that Al Qaeda is the principal terrorist threat to America.

Kaminski calls Ritter, Hersh and Sibel Edmonds "gate keepers"

Can we trust Ritter?

Plus, Ritter's recent remark on a radio show that David Kelly's death really was a suicide -- despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary -- should also make us wonder about Ritter.

Robert Fisk: The real story behind those rumours that the Americans banned me from the US

I had simply travelled on an old passport that was no longer valid for the US
The Independent
Published: 22 October 2005

This is the story of the internet, a passport and a chocolate mousse. The first told lies, the second was useless and the third never eaten.

It started when I set off for Santa Fe to read from my new book on the Middle East. There was to be an interview with that iconic leftist radio host, Amy Goodman, and an awful lot of people booked to listen to Bob of Arabia. US immigration cheerfully ran my little red passport through their computer scanner. It's full of visas from pariah countries, but this didn't seem to trouble the lady from Homeland Security. What worried her was something different. "It doesn't scan," she said. No, I said nonchalantly.I was sent into a large room full of angry would-be visitors to the United States. A tall man scanned my irises and took my fingerprints. So that's that, I thought. Not so. Forty-five minutes later, another lady from Homeland Security - I still don't like that word "homeland", with its dodgy echo of the German "Heimat". I only needed 36 hours in the States, I said. To give a lecture without a fee. Hundreds of people would be present.

"I'll see my supervisor to see if we can get you in," she cheerfully announced. Long live America, I breathed. Until she came back and told me her supervisor would not let me travel. The lads and lassies who are supposed to stop Osama bin Laden attacking America were now making sure I couldn't read from a book in Santa Fe.

Much deft technical work allowed me to give the talk and the reading by satellite, right into the Santa Fe lecture theatre. Then came the blow. One of the organisers had told the New Mexican - a newspaper I would now like to buy and close down - that the US authorities had refused me entry because my "papers were not in order." Which was true enough, up to a point. But within hours, the internet - a vile institution which I do not use - was awash with stories that the United States had banned my entry to America because of my critical articles about the Bush administration or because I had long ago interviewed bin Laden or because I was so horrible that no democracy would ever let me stain its front doormat.

Dean calls for end to 'culture of corruption'
Portland Press Herald Writer
Sunday, October 23, 2005

LEWISTON - The Bush White House is the most corrupt administration in U.S. history since President Warren G. Harding's, said Howard Dean during his first visit to Maine as chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Dean's comments Saturday came as top White House advisers are being investigated for their roles in the outing of a CIA operative and Tom DeLay, the former second-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, faces conspiracy and money-laundering charges.

"The first thing we're going to do is we're going to have ethics come back to Washington again," said Dean, the keynote speaker at Saturday night's annual fundraising dinner for the Maine Democratic Party at the Lewiston Armory.

To deal with the "culture of corruption," Dean said, there needs to be an ethics code in Congress and stronger campaign finance laws. [...]

Comment: Hmm, we seem to remember another guy who made all sorts of promises that he didn't keep once he became president. He did start a really big war on terror and pass all kinds of new fascist laws, though... And wasn't it the Democrats who backed this guy all the way, even though he wasn't a Democrat?

Media, Democrats Complicit in Rush to War
by Patrick J. Buchanan
October 24, 2005

While President Bush and his War Cabinet bear full moral responsibility for Iraq, they could not have taken us to war without the complicity of the "adversary press" and "loyal opposition."

Today, this town is salivating over the prospect that Karl Rove and "Scooter" Libby will be indicted for outing Joe Wilson's wife as a CIA operative. Thirty months ago, many of those anxious to see the White House brought down were hauling its water. Consider the role played by our newspaper of record, The New York Times. [...]

But the indispensable enablers of war are the New Democrats and potential presidential nominees, Sens. Kerry, Edwards, Clinton, Biden, and Bayh. Fearful that Bush and Rove would use their refusal to authorize war in October 2002 to impeach Democrats' patriotism, they voted to give him a blank check for war. Six months later, Bush cashed it.

The Democratic Senate could have slowed the stampede. And if it could not have stopped it, it might at least have gotten answers to crucial questions. How many troops would be needed? What was the probability of guerrilla war? What was our exit strategy? Instead, the Senate surrendered the war powers the Founding Fathers reserved for Congress to the president and abdicated its constitutional duty. [...]

Comment: [Sarcasm Alert!] Yup, it sounds like the Democrats are exactly what the US needs right now...

More lawmakers back U.S. control of Internet
By Andy Sullivan
Fri Oct 21, 2005 1:13 PM ET

WASHINGTON - Three lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives called on Friday for the Internet's core infrastructure to remain under U.S. control, echoing similar language introduced in the Senate earlier this week.

The resolution, introduced by two Republicans and one Democrat, aims to line up Congress firmly behind the Bush administration as it heads for a showdown with much of the rest of the world over control of the global computer network.

"Turning the Internet over to countries with problematic human-rights records, muted free-speech laws, and questionable taxation practices will prevent the Internet from remaining the thriving medium it has become today," said California Republican Rep. John Doolittle in a statement. [...]

Comment: We completely agree. Therefore, the internet's core infrastructure should not be under the control of the US.

The European Union withdrew its support of the current system last month, and the issue is expected to come to a head at a U.N. summit meeting in Tunisia in November. [...]

C.I.A. to Avoid Charges in Most Prisoner Deaths
October 23, 2005

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 - Despite indications of C.I.A. involvement in the deaths of at least four prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan, C.I.A. employees now appear likely to escape criminal charges in all but one of those incidents, according to current and former intelligence and law enforcement officials.

Federal prosecutors reviewing cases of possible misconduct by C.I.A. employees have recently notified lawyers that they do not intend to bring criminal charges in several cases involving the handling of terrorism suspects and Iraqi insurgents, the officials said.

Some of the cases are still technically under review by the Justice Department...

Another Military Blogger Silenced
by Matt
October 23rd, 2005

Months ago, in response to a post I wrote about the military blogger Colby Buzzell, Kate of Broken Windows told me to pay attention to Daniel Goetz, a soldier writing a blog called All the King's Horses. Regrettably, I never followed her advice. And now, as Lizzy, Fred, and Navyswan tell us, it is too late.

It is too late because Daniel has been silenced, against his will. And not only has he been silenced - he has been forced to publicly declare himself "a supporter of the administration and of her policies."

A stop-lossed soldier angry that he is still serving in Iraq, seven months beyond his original enlistment agreement, Daniel is no longer free to post on his blog. Though he had taken care to adhere to the code of conduct to which he is bound, it is likely that a post of his on the Operation Truth website brought his views to the attention of military officials.

Daniel's final post is heart-breaking; the single most chilling thing about it, if you know your Orwell, is its title: Double Plus Ungood.

In a groundbreaking study, the Journal of Nanotechnology has published a study that found silver nanoparticles kills HIV-1 and is likely to kill virtually any other virus. The study, which was conducted by the University of Texas and Mexico University, is the first medical study to ever explore the benefits of silver nanoparticles, according to Physorg.

During the study, researchers used three different methods of limiting the size of the silver nanoparticles by using capping agents. The capping agents were foamy carbon, poly (PVP), and bovine serum albumin (BSA). The particles ranged in size from 1 to 10 nanometers depending on the method of capping. After incubating the HIV-1 virus at 37 C, the silver particles killed 100% of the virus within 3 hours for all three methods. The scientists believe that the silver particles bonded through glycoprotein knobs on the virus with spacing of about 22 nanometers in length.

While further research is needed, researchers are optimistic that nanological silver may be the silver bullet to kill viruses. The researchers in the study said that they had already begin experiments using silver nanoparticles to kill what is known as the super bug (Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus). Already used as a topical antibiotic in the medical industry, silver may now come under consideration as an alternative to drugs when it comes to fighting previously untreatable viruses such as the Tamiflu resistant avian flu.

Comment: Silver is used as a topical antibiotic in the medical industry in the form of silver colloids, or suspensions of silver particles in a liquid, gel, or cream. It is especially popular for burn treatment. For years now, there have been devices available on the internet that one can buy to create silver colloids of varying quality and purity. Many people report that colloidal silver is one of the best antibiotics they have ever used, and it is very cheap to produce. It is therefore rather interesting that stories like this one aren't splashed all over the front pages of every newspaper around the world. Then again, when we look at the pharmaceutical industry and who is behind the promotion of patented drugs like Tamiflu, the lack of coverage of colloidal silver and disinformation spread about it is hardly surprising.

Readers can be helpful, and one just wrote in to inform us of a link that we had never imagined - Donald Rumsfeld, until he resigned and joined the Bush Administration, was the chairman of something called Gilead which just happened to make something called Tamiflu.

Now anyone who hasn't been on Mars for the last month or two, knows that there were only two things that were going to stop the human version of bird flu. One was a bird flu vaccine (which probably would work better if you were a bird) and the other was something called Tamiflu. Yes, that Tamiflu. In such short supply that the hundreds of millions of orders that have been pouring into Gilead probably won't be filled for another 12 months or so. But everyone has got to have it because somehow or other it became established that Tamiflu really worked.

This was the party line, anyway, for about a week, until word began trickling back in that maybe Tamiflu didn't work. In fact, the word on Tamiflu has always been positive at first and then eventually negative. It's a kind of pattern. [...]

Now isn't it an 'amazing coincidence' that the drug Tamiflu patented by Gilead Sciences is being pushed by the National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Diseases as the NUMBER ONE choice for flu, which, wonder of wonders, is sweeping through in one epidemic after another." [...]

Comment: We have previously reported that Rummy also pushed for FDA approval of aspartame, which has been linked to several neurological ailments such as Parkinson's disease. So why would Rummy push for a drug that appears to be so much less effective than silver? Well, if you were the head of a huge drug company, would you want people brewing their own "miracle cures", or paying you exorbitant fees instead for your product?

Flashback: Is Bush Nuts?
by William Thomas

[...] Another big clue to Dubya's displays of dementia comes in "photo-ops" showing him slugging back diet Coke with other Aspartame addicts, like Chicago's mayor Richard Daley. Their beet red faces spell either embarrassment over Bush's hijacking of America, or aspartame poisoning. [Chicago Sun Times, Sept. 27, 2002]

According to Carol Guilford, an Aspartame expert and support worker, the President-Select's "pretzel" pratfall was most likely an Aspartame seizure. Bush, like Carter, Al Gore and millions of Americans, is addicted to this constant caffeine hit. Among the FDA's listed 92 symptoms for Aspartame poisoning are: "Difficulty Swallowing", "Fainting" and "Unconsciousness".

Bush's facial lesions, removed as a result of "Too much sun" is another sign of Aspartame poisoning. So was his recent knee surgery: Aspartame depletes synovial fluid lubricating the joints.

Would you drink 6 to 12 cans of formaldehyde a day? It turns out that methanol in Aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the tissues. As Guildford wrote to USN Captain Eleanor Marino, Physician to the President (Feb. 21, 2002): 10% of a 200mg can of diet soda is straight methanol wood alcohol! Methanol is such a gross cumulative poison, the EPA's limit for drinking water is 7.8 mg daily. For serious addicts like Bush, the methanol intake can exceed 32 times the EPA's recommended limit..

Now the punch line: Clinical case studies shows that, among other symptoms, Aspartame ingestion results in "mind fog", feeling "unreal", poor memory, confusion, anxiety, irritability, depression, mania, and slurred speech. [Neurology 1994]

Alcohol-related brain damage is not helped by chugging formaldehyde. James Turner, consumer protection lawyer and author of The Chemical Feast learned that an Oct. 1980 FDA inquiry found that the formaldehyde formed by Aspartame actually eats microscopic holes and triggers tumors in the brain.

That finding banned Aspartame from the food supply. But three months later, Searle CEO Donald Rumsfeld told that pharma giant's sales staff he would get Aspartame approved pronto. The next month, the FDA commissioner was replaced by Dr. Arthur Hayes. In Nov. 1983 the FDA approved aspartame for soft drinks. Under fire for accepting corporate bribes, Hayes went to work for Searle's public-relations firm. Searle lawyer Robert Shapiro coined the name NutraSweet. Monsanto bought Searle. Rumsfeld received $12 million for his help. Shapiro now heads Monsanto. [...]

Flashback: Aspartame - Anxiety, Depression And Suicide Among Children
From Dr. Betty Martini

This information will help answer a lot of questions as to why so many children are depressed and committing suicide.

Two-thirds of the population and 40% of the children in this country are using products with aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful/Canderel, Benevia, E951, etc.). It is a neurotoxic drug, a deadly chemical poison, and masquerading as an additive.

The 50% phenylalanine in it as an isolate is neurotoxic and goes directly into the brain. It lowers the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin. When you lower serotonin it triggers manic depression or bipolar, mood swings, anxiety, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, panic attacks, paranoia, hallucinations, etc. It also interacts with ALL antidepressants. In fact, it interacts with just about every drug used to treat the problems it causes. This is all discussed in the huge medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic by H. J. Roberts, M.D. or 1 800 827 7991.

The concern also in this country right now is obesity and diabetes. Aspartame is the cause of this in my opinion as it's a drug that makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. [...]

The Trocho Study in 1998 showed the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol in aspartame accumulates in the cells and damages DNA with most toxicity in the liver. When the liver is this toxic it is even more difficult to lose weight. It also showed substantial toxicity in the adipose tissue or fat cells. If you want to get fat, NutraSweet is where its at. [...]

Comment: There is a great deal more information available on the web regarding the harmful effects of aspartame. One can even view a Department of Health and Human Services document allegedly obtained via the FOIA that lists the symptoms attributed to aspartame in complaints submitted to the FDA.

The Man Who Would Murder Death

A rogue researcher challenges scientists to reverse human aging

The Chronicle of Higher Education, Cambridge, England
October 28, 2005

[...] Aubrey de Grey is [a] 42-year-old English biogerontologist [who] has made his name by claiming that some people alive right now could live for 1,000 years or longer. Maybe much longer. Growing old is not, in his view, an inevitable consequence of the human condition; rather, it is the result of accumulated damage at the cellular and molecular levels that medical advances will soon be able to prevent - or even reverse - allowing people to go on living pretty much indefinitely. We'll still have to worry about angry bears and falling pianos, but aging, the biggest killer of all, will cease to be a threat. Death, as we know it, will die. [...]

Mr. de Grey recommends using stem-cell therapy to introduce new cells that can fill in the gaps left by dead ones. He also suggests that plaques that accumulate around cells - which may be responsible for diseases like Alzheimer's - can be dissolved with small molecules called "beta-breakers." [...]

"I assumed that everyone was beavering away on aging," he says. "But it gradually occurred to me that I might be wrong about that." The field, he believed, needed him. "Gerontology has more than its share of not terribly bright people," he says. That's because, according to Mr. de Grey, progress is incremental, so there's less chance for a young researcher to make a big splash, and consequently, the best minds go elsewhere.

One will not find Mr. de Grey in the laboratory hovering over petri dishes or test tubes. He readily acknowledges that he lacks the qualifications to perform experiments. What some might view as a handicap, he sees as a strength: Rather than spending his time behind a microscope, he reads the literature and searches for connections that a specialist may have missed.

Buoyed by his early success, Mr. de Grey started thinking bigger. He came to believe that most people in the world, including most scientists, are in a "pro-aging trance." That is, they believe that getting old is awful but inevitable and therefore it is best not to think about it. But what if aging were preventable? What if death were not a foregone conclusion?

by Sr. Meteorologist Henry Margusity

STATE COLLEGE, PA ( -- Hurricane Wilma has joined forces with a storm off the mid-Atlantic coast to produce what Meteorologists have termed "SuperStorm 2005." The SuperStorm is currently producing winds over 40 mph from New Jersey to New England. Martha's Vineyard, Mass., reported a peak wind of 49 mph and reports of winds up to 50 mph have been received from the New Jersey coast and Long Island, Ny.

The storm has three major components that will impact many people across the mid-Atlantic into the Northeast. The first component, as already mentioned, is the high winds lashing the coastal areas. The strongest winds and the potential for damage and even power outages will occur across eastern New England today. Winds in that area are forecast to gust up to 60 mph. Given the already soggy ground, the winds could easily cause trees to be blown over.

The second component of the storm is the flooding threat. Heavy rain has already fallen overnight across New England. Over an inch of rain has been reported in many areas. Another 2-4 inches of rain is forecast across New England and, based on the reports from emergency management in New England, 2 inches of rain will cause renewed flooding problems. Heavy rain will also impact parts of eastern Pennsylvania , eastern New York and New Jersey where flooding of small streams and creeks will occur.

The third component of the storm is the heavy wet snow. Reports of over 2 inches of snow and power outages have been received by across south-central Pennsylvania this morning. The bulk of the heavy snow has fallen across the higher elevations of West Virginia, where over 4 inches of snow has been measured. The heavy, wet snow will spread into central Pennsylvania this morning, then into the Poconos of Pennsylvania later today and tonight. Snow will also develop across the Catskills of New York, and the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire. Elevations about 1,500 feet will have over 4 inches of snow. With trees fully leafed in many of these areas, the heavy weight of the snow can weigh down tree limbs onto power lines, resulting in scattered power outages.

The SuperStorm is forecast to move up along the New England coast tonight and be in the Canadian Maritimes by midday Wednesday. Dry, chilly and blustery weather will follow the storm. If the stormy weather along the Eastern Seaboard is any indication of the winter pattern, then prepare for a wild winter. Keep in mind, Winter Outlook is calling for above normal snows over much of the Northeast and northern Appalachians this winter.

Accidental invention could light up the future

Quantum dot mixture takes LED lighting to a new level
Updated: 6:44 p.m. ET Oct. 21, 2005

The main light source of the future will almost surely not be a bulb. It might be a table, a wall, or even a fork.

An accidental discovery announced this week has taken LED lighting to a new level, suggesting it could soon offer a cheaper, longer-lasting alternative to the traditional light bulb. The miniature breakthrough adds to a growing trend that is likely to eventually make Thomas Edison's bright invention obsolete. [...]

Michael Bowers, a graduate student at Vanderbilt University, was just trying to make really small quantum dots, which are crystals generally only a few nanometers big. That's less than 1/1000th the width of a human hair.

Quantum dots contain anywhere from 100 to 1,000 electrons. They're easily excited bundles of energy, and the smaller they are, the more excited they get. Each dot in Bower's particular batch was exceptionally small, containing only 33 or 34 pairs of atoms.

When you shine a light on quantum dots or apply electricity to them, they react by producing their own light, normally a bright, vibrant color. But when Bowers shined a laser on his batch of dots, something unexpected happened.

"I was surprised when a white glow covered the table," Bowers said. "The quantum dots were supposed to emit blue light, but instead they were giving off a beautiful white glow."

Then Bowers and another student got the idea to stir the dots into polyurethane and coat a blue LED light bulb with the mix. The lumpy bulb wasn't pretty, but it produced white light similar to a regular light bulb.

The new device gives off a warm, yellowish-white light that shines twice as bright and lasts 50 times longer than the standard 60 watt light bulb.

This work is published online in the Oct. 18 edition of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

Comment: How about light-emitting paints or materials? Alleged alien abductees often describe rooms that are filled with light even though there is no discernible light source. Has Bowers discovered ET's lightbulb?

"Because We Say So!"
The Gospel According to Anne [click link to read original story]

The queen of the occult has been gone awhile. What's Anne Rice been up to? Getting healthy, finding God - and writing her most daring book yet.

Well it's gone and happened: Anne Rice fell off the deep end in a spectacular come back of bizarre star religious conversions, the so-called queen of the occult [sic] has found her lord and savior, fangless though he may be.

Now she's turned her eye towards penning popular christian tripe, and I expect her plotless endeavors will be filled with disassociated waxy characters glorified in their inherent psychopathy.

Face it: the woman sucked. Have you actually read Interview with the Vampire? When they made the movie they had to pull out the big guns to make it even palatable - I mean, you know a story isn't worth telling when they need to call in Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Antonio Banderas to make it

There is something, at least to me, discordant with using religious figures in your fiction, mainly because fiction isn't fiction. It's such an abstract concept. When is something that isn't real, real? If we take the maxim "Nothing that is unreal exists" then fiction can be nothing more than a lie that is admittedly so.
A lie is also not false, a lie is a perceived distortion of objective reality. To tell a lie is simply to distort objective reality for another person or persons. Are you following me? No matter.

By using an actual individual (so to speak) in a fictional setting, you are in effect distorting people's understanding and perception of that person.

The many fans of Anne Rice will read her new book "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt", and simply be incapable of separating fact from fiction - a hidden purpose in her decision?

I can see Archbishops cackling madly in the background.

Some scholars, like Burton Mack, discuss this fictionalizing phenomenon in his book The Lost Gospel. You may want to read The Lost Gospel book review for more information.

All of that is pretty inconsequential though. This move of hers comes at a difficult point in my life. I don't think Anne Rice has considered the effect that her decision has had on people who love to hate her.

I feel definitely slighted that all that time and effort I put into defacing images of her, writing suggestive phrases complete with phone number on public bathroom stalls, and Founding and Organizing the Anne Rice Anti-Fan club, are now down the drains. Before it was a challenge and an enjoyment to hate on Anne Rice; to do it now would be like spraying PAM on a wheelchair ramp.

That's why I am going to sue Anne Rice, her Fans, and the Roman Catholic Church for time lost, and damages incurred by her religious re-conversion!

Sadly, I am sure Rice's motley faction of pseudo-bohemian followers will help to ensure her latest foray with a typewriter will line the shelves of B&N as well as smaller retailers the world over. If she goes so far as to have it translated into Aramaic, I am gonna spew!

NEW! 9/11: The Ultimate Truth is Available for Pre-Order!

On the fourth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Laura Knight-Jadczyk announces the availability of her latest book:

In the years since the 9/11 attacks, dozens of books have sought to explore the truth behind the official version of events that day - yet to date, none of these publications has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out.

Taking a broad, millennia-long perspective, Laura Knight-Jadczyk's 9/11: The Ultimate Truth uncovers the true nature of the ruling elite on our planet and presents new and ground-breaking insights into just how the 9/11 attacks played out.

9/11: The Ultimate Truth makes a strong case for the idea that September 11, 2001 marked the moment when our planet entered the final phase of a diabolical plan that has been many, many years in the making. It is a plan developed and nurtured by successive generations of ruthless individuals who relentlessly exploit the negative aspects of basic human nature to entrap humanity as a whole in endless wars and suffering in order to keep us confused and distracted to the reality of the man behind the curtain.

Drawing on historical and genealogical sources, Knight-Jadczyk eloquently links the 9/11 event to the modern-day Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She also cites the clear evidence that our planet undergoes periodic natural cataclysms, a cycle that has arguably brought humanity to the brink of destruction in the present day.

For its no nonsense style in cutting to the core of the issue and its sheer audacity in refusing to be swayed or distracted by the morass of disinformation that has been employed by the Powers that Be to cover their tracks, 9/11: The Ultimate Truth can rightly claim to be THE definitive book on 9/11 - and what that fateful day's true implications are for the future of mankind.

Published by Red Pill Press

Scheduled for release in October 2005, readers can pre-order the book today at our bookstore.
