most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure
uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other
possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are
viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.
I was going to write you a letter about what a pathetic liar George W, Bush is -- but then I figured, hey, why waste your time telling you something you already know!
You already know that his planned invasion of Iraq is a
ruse meant to distract the public from the real issues, those
issues being the following:
THOSE are the real issues facing us, not some phony excuse for a war.
But, like I said, you already know that. You know that Bush is lying through his smirk when he says Iraq has "weapons of mass destruction." He has not offered one shred of evidence to prove this. Not one! You know he is lying when he says that there is a "connection" between Saddam and bin Laden. Even members of his own administration have admitted that is not true. It's just one lie after another, and I applaud those three congressmen who went to Iraq this week and told it like it is -- and demanded that the sanctions which have already killed a half-million Iraqi children be ended. Sen. Trent Lott said "they should come home and keep their mouths shut." I say, we need more damn Democrats with that kind of courage and with mouths like that!
Which brings me to the real point of this letter. The Democrats.
I have never seen a more lame bunch of cowards and appeasers in my life. They are ready to bow down before Bush and give him what he wants to wage war against Iraq. This pathetic excuse of a party is an embarrassment to us all. The fact that they let Robert Torricelli run for re-election in New Jersey, knowing how dirty he was, shows just how capable they are of handing the Senate over to Bush and the Republicans come November. They have blown it over and over again, and lots of good people I know who keep putting their faith in the Democrats are just giving up -- and that is the worst thing to happen in a free society.
What are we going to do? Left to their own devices, the Democrats will not only hand both the House and the Senate to the Republicans in November, they will guarantee that Bush gets his second undeserved term in 2004. We must not let that happen. This year's election was theirs for the taking. Just look at the state of the union Bush gave us: Bush cronies caught stealing from the corporate till, Bush and Cheney caught breaking the law in the '90s, the economy in the toilet, and Bush failing to do the only real job he had to do since 9/11: Get bin Laden! What a disgrace! Yet the Democrats could not even find enough candidates to offer a REAL challenge to the Republicans in nearly 200 House districts for the November 5th elections. What an appalling excuse of a party.
OK, I know, there is not much we can do about this now. But we all need to get busy and ensure that this whole rotten system is rocked by the disgruntled millions come election day 2004. Otherwise, we have no right to complain.
In the meantime, we must stop the Bush attack on Iraq. We must find out now, as W says, "who is wid us and who is agin us." I am asking each of you to please sign the petition I have posted here informing the Democrats that whoever amongst them votes for this war, we pledge NEVER to vote for them again. I will personally see that your on-line signatures are delivered to every member of Congress. I guarantee your voice will be heard loud and clear. "You're Either With Us Or You're Fired." Then let's figure out together what we can do to turn things around by 2004.
Thanks for taking the time to do this. We have no other choice.
Photos, poems, open murder trial of ex-hippie guru Einhorn. - In his opening statement, Rosen read a poem from Einhorn's personal journals in which the defendant allegedly described how he had beaten and choked another ex-lover. The poem's closing lines were, "In such violence, there may be freedom." "He had his own little bizarre philosophy of violence. It was OK to him," Rosen told the packed courtroom. Read about Ira Einhorn in detail in the Adventures With Cassiopaea series.
The Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday that a U.S. war against Iraq would cost between $9 billion and $13 billion, according to an initial estimate sent to the House and Senate.
President Bush warned Congress Tuesday not to limit his options on Iraq as the Senate prepared to debate whether to endorse military action to disarm Saddam Hussein. - Meanwhile, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer Tuesday offered exile or assassination as possible solutions for a standoff with Iraq, although he later said he was only making a rhetorical point. - Asked about congressional estimates that deploying troops to Iraq could cost more than $9 billion , White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said, "I can only say that the cost of a one-way ticket is substantially less than that. The cost of one bullet, the Iraqi people taking it on themselves, is substantially less than that." Comment: I REALLY can't believe that the American people are not literally screaming for the IMPEACHMENT of these clowns! What is Congress doing? Why aren't THEY demanding that Bush and the whole damn administration be impeached. Are they ASLEEP?
The FBI has failed to develop a comprehensive assessment of the risk of a terrorist threat facing the United States despite a promise to do so, according to a U.S. Justice Department review of the FBI counterterrorism programs released Tuesday.
Tens of thousands of people fled Tuesday as Lili grew into a Category 2 hurricane and pounded western Cuba, and forecasters said the storm would likely be even more fierce when it socks the U.S. Gulf Coast this week. Lili, whose maximum sustained winds had increased to near 100 mph Tuesday afternoon, could have winds of 120 mph or more when it hits the United States, probably on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center predicted.
Iraq warned NATO member Turkey that it would no longer consider it a friendly nation if US warplanes used Turkish bases for a war against Baghdad.
Fast-moving Typhoon Higos, one of the most powerful storms to threaten central Japan for 50 years, struck Tokyo and killed at least two people, officials and news reports said.
Arabs bitterly denounced U.S. legislation requiring President Bush's administration to identify Jerusalem as Israel's capital. - Arab reactions reflected anger at what was seen as fresh evidence of U.S. bias toward Israel, which annexed Arab East Jerusalem, encompassing one of Islam's holiest shrines, after capturing it in the 1967 Middle East war.
Police found the body of the 11-year-old heir to Germany's Metzler private banking dynasty who was kidnapped last week. - the body of Jakob von Metzler was found in a lake some 45 miles north-east of the city earlier on Tuesday. A Frankfurt local court spokesman said a 27-year-old man, a law student from Frankfurt who is close to the boy's family, had been charged with abduction and murder and transferred to a prison near Frankfurt. Police said they had found a large sum of money, which could be part of the one million euro ($988,000) ransom demanded within an hour of the last sighting of the boy.
With solemn faces, key U.N. Security Council members pored over a proposed resolution against Iraq on Tuesday with no sign that Washington had garnered enough agreement to formally introduce the draft. The U.S. draft resolution, backed by Britain, would allow Washington to attack Iraq when it concludes that Baghdad has failed to disclose any weapons of mass destruction programs.
Iraqi arms experts and U.N. weapons inspectors struck a deal Tuesday about resuming work in Baghdad, with an advance team of inspectors expected to arrive in Iraq in around two weeks.
The mother of a 10-year-old girl who beat her four-year-old brother to death on the instructions of their stepfather was arrested for watching television during the incident, officials said on Saturday.
A prolonged shutdown of West Coast ports could lead to empty store shelves, quiet factories and a global economic crisis, analysts say. - Millions of dollars in cargo sat idle for a second day at the 29 major Pacific ports. West Coast shipping lines said they will keep the ports closed until the longshoremen agree to extend their expired contract. But the 10,500-member union said it will not budge until the lockout is ended.
A mob of nearly 20 kids beat a man brain dead Sunday night after he confronted them for throwing an egg at him and punched one teen in the mouth, police said. - Eight suspects, at least one as young as 10, were in custody Tuesday, police said. The victim, Charlie Young Jr., 36, remained on life support.
A few days ago we bought a boxed set of videos from Sam's Club entitled Crimes of the 20th Century. These videos are produced by MM&V, Dastar Corp. Among the crimes narrated over some amazing old film footage was Hitler and Nazi Germany, and the Kennedy assassination. What was so surprising was the frank and direct way certain items were remarked upon by the narrator. The connections between the Rockefellers, Merrimans, Skull and Bones club, power politics, eugenics, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Bush and their anti-semitic agenda, were drawn accurately and cleanly. I was rather surprised that such a series of videos was being marketed at Sam's which also has a big display of the Left Behind series of novels by Fundie rightist Tim LaHaye, as well as a big display of American flags and poles.
This came right at the time that my mother was telling me about the "revelations" being made on the History channel (we don't have cable so couldn't watch it) about the Skull and Bones club, followed by another espose of the the Kennedy assassination. Apparently, the conclusions being touted in current day films presented on cable television, is the same view that was formerly denigrated as "conspiracy theoryies" that were not worth the time of day. Current commentators, with great seriousness, will intone the obvious fact that Oswald was merely a patsy and the CIA along with the Mob, driven by power politics, conspired to kill Kennedy. They will suggest with perfect equanimity what used to be considered "spittle flecked ranting" of crazed lunatics, which is that the conspirators included the main figures of the subsequent administrations, (excluding Reagan), including the Bush Gang of the present regime. In other words, we are being told by "reputable experts" in the present time that our current president is president by virtue of the fact that the manipulators behind the scenes assassinated numerous public figures which also include Bobby Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, John Lennon, and others.
What is amazing to me is that these things are being talked about publicly, but nobody seems to care. It's just "business as usual."
Naturally, not everybody watches the History channel, nor do they buy videos of rare film footage. Most people watch their favorite action shows, sitcoms, and maybe the news, sports and weather at 6 or 11 p.m. As long as their "shows" are on, they have the feeling that whoever is in charge is handling world affairs, and they don't need to worry about a thing.
I have mentioned before that, when our son attended a graphic arts and advertising school, one of the first things the students learned was that advertising in America is geared toward the mentality of the average 7th grader - someone who is mentally and emotionally 12 to 14 years old. Why? Because it has been established that this is the mental and emotional age of the MAJORITY of Americans. I am not precisely sure what they mean by "majority," but I suspect that it is something like 7 out of 10 Americans. Of course, if you are reading this, you proabably aren't one of them so I'm preaching to the choir.
If any of you have a child of this age in your house (we do) then you will realize that they are pretty bright and can do just about anything that an "adult" can do - and often more - while at the same time, having a narrow, ego-oriented, immature emotional quotient. Children of this age still like comic books, slap-stick comedy, fantasy and action, far more than those things which engage the mind in deep and subtle ways. At the same time, some of them are quite capable of rocket science. Paraphrasing Hervey Cleckley about the adolsecent personality:
With this description, we already see why the shows and advertisements on prime-time television are so darned engaging. They have to be to hold the attention of such a mentality. But there is something even more insidious:
Recently a reader wrote to tell me about a discussion with a neighbor described as follows:
We notice, of course, the contradiction in the above "explanation" given by the "expert." First she says that everything would have burned up upon impact in one big explosion, vaporizing the entire aircraft. Then, to explain the lack of wing impact marks and the very small entry hole into the wall of the Pentagon, she tells us that the wings would have folded back and exploded "behind" the aircraft. Apparently, she hasn't examined the evidence that shows that there was no explosion "behind" the aircraft, nor was the "explosion" upon impact sufficient to vaporize the aircraft AND the fuel, while doing so little damage to the Pentagon - even considering the reinforcements of the building. One would also assume that such an explosion "behind" would have scattered debris far and wide, and we already know there was no such debris. The complete lack of debris, taken on conjunction with the claimed violence of the explosion is as contradictory as Wiley Coyote walking away from the many traps he sets for the Road Runner. But, with the adolescent mentality, such explanations are acceptable because - well - because the thinking capacity of the adolescent mind, the same mentality that believes all the hype of programmed television and commercial advertising, is geared to that kind of contradiction. We see the same mentality in the fact that this long time "expert" and government employee is also certain that UFOs don't exist, basing this opinion on the fact that "our current propulsion system" combined with the "round shape" makes them impossible. Never mind all the documentary evidence presented in Dolan's book that the US military is VERY concerned about UFOs, and the point of this concern is that they obviously operate based on such advanced propulsion that comparison to "our current propulsion systems" is irrelevant.
In any event, this is a perfect example of the adolescent mentality - incapable of truly deep thought or sustained effort to make connections and comprehend reality - seeking only a surface explanation and divertissment from the boring reality of making a living. One wonders how such an individual can feed and dress themselves.
Readers of this site - particularly my autobiography, Amazing Grace - are aware of how I came to the awareness of possible "conspiracies" in our world mainly because I was seeking a deeper understanding of how Evil could have initially come to exist in a Cosmos created by a perfect, loving, all-knowing God - as the Master of the Universe was presented in the religious teachings of my childhood. I suppose what attracted my attention to this was the fact that the "words didn't match what I observed."
In the example above, we notice that the "words don't match what we can easily observe." And in the explanations of our political leaders we also notice that the words don't match what we can observe. The only troubling part is that the above expert doesn't seem to be noticing, and a whole host of Americans - very likely the majority - also aren't noticing. And not noticing may be suicidal.
The key to this, however, is in the word "observe." In Cleckley's example above, the adolescent mind, which we know from many studies is the mentality of the majority of Americans, he describes a group of boys who must "sit through a performance of King Lear or of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony." They are incapable of doing so because the depth of experience portrayed in the play is NOT PART OF THEIR REALITY. In the situation described by Cleckley, it is due to the fact that they are children, they have not experienced the "big rewards of love, of the hard job well done, of faith kept despite sacrifices," and thus cannot have "feel" any connection to the drama - there is no "recognition." Children are bored by what they cannot relate to.
This brings us to consider, again, the subject of Organic Portals and psychopaths as discussed in some depth on this site. Is the individual quoted above - the engineer and "expert" - an Organic Portal? If the C's are correct about the distribution, that means that half of the American population are of this nature, and most of the other half are asleep or under the influence of the OPs. This subject of psychopaths and Organic Portals was, apparently, of such importance, that the C's guided me through direct experiences with a group of them in order to learn to discern the true nature of the problem which will be, as the C's have noted, crucial to our survival in days to come.
Those days are NOW. We are presently being confronted with the overt evidence of the Consortium in action in our world. They are right up front, on the Global Stage, and those individuals who are not stuck in the "Average American Syndrome" of the mentality and emotions of approximately 14 years of age - whether because they are asleep or because they are OPs - will most definitely notice that the words do not match the observations. Of course, some work has to be done to realize this, which includes turning off the television and seeking out the information that has been put together by diligent efforts of those who have gone before and have seen that the words don't match the reality.
As I have noted elsewhere, my own work in this respect was done independently. At first, I was so horrified at what I had "discovered," I was afraid to tell anyone. I thought I had "invented the wheel," so to say. It was only later that I learned that there ARE others who SEE. There are others who have done the work of asking the questions with the beginner's mind, who have patiently dug through the records, the evidence, the connections. And, as the narrator of the "Crimes of the 20th Century" videos pointed out: It takes an act of blind faith to believe in the "lone gunman" theory of the assassination of JFK and to dismiss the enormous number of discrepancies in the story as just "coincidence." And in terms of the entire global situation, when one begins to honestly examine the hard evidence, the number of "coincidences" simply piles to heaven, and one realizes finally that NOTHING is as it seems, and never has been.
Anyway, let me just recapitulate a bit here: We have a president and an administration that represent the culmination of probably millennia of manipulation. The evidence of the connections between the agenda of Nazi Germany and the present agenda is manifold in both quantity and type. I have followed certain threads in my Adventures with Cassiopaea series, but the spider web of connections goes far beyond what I have been able to present thus far. And, there is no point in reinventing the wheel. There is a biography of George Bush Sr, laying out his connections to the Consortium. There is an enormous body of material describing the network of the "robber barons" - the Rockefeller groups - and their anti-Semitic agenda of eugenics and genocide that is currently being implemented on our planet today, as we speak. A search of the internet will bring up quite a few books written by legitimate scholars and researchers who have done the work and put much of the puzzle together. What we do here is more in the way of adding the trans-millennial hyperdimensional perspective, and try to make some sense of all of it in the broadest, Cosmic terms.
There are more and more mainstream articles and books being written about these matters, these connections, and the admissions that a power-mad clique has been planning, and is now implementing the takeover of the planet. It is also obvious from our own research that this agenda is being implemented via the New Age movement and UFO research field. Simple logic tells us that, with all the effort and energy put into deception over millennia, it is hardly likely that they would let the truth be known NOW!
This is what IS.
Those who can blithely declaim: "oh, yes, it was a 757 that hit the Pentagon," or "there are no UFOs because our current technology says they can't exist," or "Oh, that business about Bush and the gang being agents of darkness is just urban myth" are basically 12 to 14 year olds who cannot watch a performance of King Lear either because they are not mature enough through lack of experience, or because there is no possibility of their maturation: they are Organic Portals.
The problem is: Organic Portals can be utilized in any numbers of ways as we have seen throughout history. We suspect this is deliberate. There are numerous examples, but the two that come to mind are the French Revolution and Nazi Germany. The mobs of the French Revolution were obviously Organic Portals activated to turn against their oppressive and arrogant rulers, and the glee with which they accused friends and neighbors alike, sending them to the guillotine, is legend. Could that happen here? Probably.
In the case of Nazi Germany, that an entire nation of people could be complicit in such an atrocity staggers the mind. It is said that when the 3rd Army liberated Buchenwald concentration camp, though it slowed him down, General Patton instituted the policy, later adopted by other commanders, of forcing local German civilians to tour the camps - to see what they had allowed to happen by pretending that nothing was wrong - that "vile conspiracies" were just "urban myths." In my own study of the matter, I wrote:
We see this same Machiavellian ploy being utilized in the present day between the Jews and the Palestinians with Bush playing the role of Hitler and siding with Israel the way Hitler pretended to agree with Stalin. The Jews simply do not realize that they are the next target of the Fascist agenda of George Bush and the Warmongers whom they are supporting with all the might of their Media empire.
Precisely the same scenario is being set up for Iraq, Iran, Israel and the rest of the Middle East. Once the war machine has been set up over there, once it has finished devouring the Iraqis and the Palestinians, it will then be ready to devour the Jews. Take that to the bank. The Rockefeller-Bush- Skull and Bones gang have NOT changed their spots.
Those who think I am exaggerating in suggesting that the present situation on Earth is a replay of the Nazis and their genocidal agenda- with America in the role of Nazi Germainy - are children who cannot sit still to watch a performance of King Lear.
Hitler's confidence and arrogance knew no bounds. Neither does the confidence and arrogances of George Bush and the Warmongers. Hitler's conficence didn't stop the rest of the world from rising up against Germany and practically bombing it back to the Stone Age. Germany didn't wake up to the manipulations of Hitler. Can America? If not, what is the alternative?
Could the Nazi holocaust have happened without anyone knowing about it? The American holocaust has.
A Call for World War IV - One 9/11 wasn't enough for some people. A well-known opinion leader has found the formula for many more, for many years to come. Not content with making war on Iraq, Norman Podhoretz of COMMENTARY magazine, the highbrow Zionist monthly, calls on the United States to launch World War IV. Yes, World War IV. Lest you think he's running a little ahead of history, we should explain that he counts the Cold War as World War III. But this time he has a very hot war in mind -- what he describes as "the war against militant Islam." Podhoretz thinks we have just the right leader to conduct a world war: George W. Bush. [...] The alleged target of Podhoretz's World War IV [...] are Israel's enemies. World War IV would be a war to destroy Israel's enemies -- fought, of course, by the United States. Podhoretz has unconsciously exposed the Manichaean fantasy world of so many of those who are now calling for war with Iraq. The United States and Israel are "good"; the Arab-Muslim states are "evil"; and those opposed to this war represent "moral relativism," ostensibly neutral but virtually on the side of "evil." This is simply deranged. The ability to see evil only in one's enemies isn't "moral clarity." It's the essence of fanaticism. We are now being counseled to fight one kind of fanaticism with another. And a man who actually clamors for a world war, with all the millions of violent deaths it would entail, is himself evil.
Manifesto for world dictatorship - Now we know. The Americans have spelt it out in black and white. There will be a world government, but not one even pretending to be comprised of representatives of its nation states through the United Nations. The United States will rule, and not according to painstakingly developed international law and norms, but by what is in its interests. In declaring itself dictator of the world, The United States will have no accountability to non-United States citizens. It will bomb who it likes when it likes, and change regimes when and as it sees fit, it will not be subject to investigations for war crimes, for torture, or for breaches of fundamental human rights.
Chemical & Biological (germ) warfare weapons of mass destruction were made in Boca Raton, Florida and Houston, Texas by "international terrorists" working with U.S. intelligence. It was called the PIT (Product Ingredient Technology) Plan. The PIT plan was financed/constructed by Dr. Barbouti/IBI (Ishan Barbouti International), builder of the Pharma-150 chemical/biological Complex, at Rabta, LIBYA. - Former President George Bush, James Baker III, John Deutch (now CIA Director, had financial interests in some of the companies which developed/sold/transferred these weapons to IRAQ. YES -while being Commander - in - Chief, President Bush was arming Saddam Hussein with these weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION, and two years later "knowing" that (but the American Public did NOT) - placed American Forces in HARMS WAY.
Necessary Illusions by linguistics scholar Noam Chomsky, who offers "a course of intellectual self-defense". He inquires into the nature of the media in our political system where citizens cannot be disciplined by force, and so must be subjected to more subtle forms of ideological control. Chomsky asks: How might the media be democratized?

September 30, 2002 - Bush Lies again! Agency disavows report on Iraq arms - The International Atomic Energy Agency says that a report cited by President Bush as evidence that Iraq in 1998 was "six months away" from developing a nuclear weapon does not exist. -
"There's never been a report like that issued from this agency," Mark Gwozdecky, the IAEA's chief spokesman, said yesterday in a telephone interview from the agency's headquarters in Vienna, Austria. "We've never put a time frame on how long it might take Iraq to construct a nuclear weapon in 1998," said the spokesman of the agency charged with assessing Iraq's nuclear capability for the United Nations.
In a Sept. 7 news conference with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Mr. Bush said: "I would remind you that when the inspectors first went into Iraq and were denied — finally denied access [in 1998], a report came out of the Atomic — the IAEA that they were six months away from developing a weapon. I don't know what more evidence we need," said the president, defending his administration's case that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was building weapons of mass destruction.
Democrats blast U.S. line on Iraq - Rep. Jim McDermott, Washington Democrat, said in Baghdad yesterday that he believes President Bush would lie to the nation to win support for a war against Saddam Hussein. "I think the president would mislead the American people," Mr. McDermott said on ABC's "This Week" about the president's campaign for support for a military campaign against Iraq.
Will the U.S. reap what it has sown? Byrd asks - Will Saddam Hussein unleash botulinum toxin, perhaps nature’s deadliest poison, and other viruses and chemicals if the United States attacks Iraq? Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., posed this question to the Senate on Thursday, based on documents obtained from different federal agencies. “We have a paper trail,” Byrd said. “We not only know that Iraq has biological weapons, we know the type, the strain, and the batch number of the germs that may have been used to fashion those weapons. We know the dates they were shipped and the addresses to which they were shipped. “We have in our hands the equivalent of a Betty Crocker cookbook of ingredients that the U.S. allowed Iraq to obtain and that may well have been used to concoct biological weapons.” - “At last week’s Armed Services Committee hearing, Secretary [Donald] Rumsfeld said he had no knowledge of any such shipments and doubted that they ever occurred. He seemed to be affronted at the very idea that the United States would ever countenance entering into such a deal with the devil. “Secretary Rumsfeld should not shy away from this information. On the contrary, he should seek it out,” Byrd said.

Bush Returning America to the Dark Ages - [T] he Bush administration's decision to extend federal health benefits to fetuses is likely to have more political than practical fallout in Massachusetts, where most low-income women are already eligible for prenatal care under several existing state programs, state officials and advocates say. The move, billed as promoting prenatal care when it was announced by administration officials last week, represents the first time that any federal policy has defined childhood as beginning at conception. Starting in November, ''unborn children'' will qualify for government health benefits, a change praised by abortion foes, but ripped by abortion-rights advocates as a thinly veiled attempt by the administration to push an antiabortion agenda. See also: The Bush administration took the final step Friday in allowing states to classify a fetus as an "unborn child" so low-income women can qualify for prenatal care -- a move that infuriated abortion rights advocates when it was first announced in January. - "It's the first time in federal regulations that we have the fetus designated as a person for the purpose of receiving benefits," said Kate Michelman, president of the National Abortion Rights Action League. "They chose to do it this way for one very clear reason and that is to contribute to the body of law and regulations that will help eliminate a woman's right to choose,"
Comment: Again we notice that Bush is playing to the Christian Right and Zionists, all the while he is a full fledged, Satan/Death worshipping, Skull and Bones-man. And naturally, the Christian Right and the Zionists who MAY know this, think that it doesn't matter - they can "use" Bush for their own agendas. Are they ever in for a rude awakening. Any other president who was as suppressive and regressive as Bush would have been flambeauxed by the Media and booted out on his rear. But, since Bush is playing to the Zionist controlled media (clever move on his part) - he has them in his corner. Reminds me of George Wallace who played to the segregationists for political power even if he his earlier policies were far more liberal. He knew which side his bread was buttered on, and so does Bush. After all, if you have a lot of fanatical Fundie preachers in your corner on one side, and fanatical Zionist Media moguls on the other, how can you lose? If only they could grok the fact that Bush's ultimate plans do not include them.
The recession increased unemployment and forced many businesses to scale back benefits, resulting in an additional 1.4 million people without health insurance last year, Census Bureau figures show. - Roughly 41.2 million people, or 14.6 percent of U.S. residents, lacked health coverage for all of 2001, compare with 14.2 percent the previous year, according to bureau estimates released Monday. - About 23 percent of people earning less than $25,000 lacked health insurance, roughly three times the percentage of those earning $75,000 and above. Additionally, disparities between whites and minorities persisted. About one-third of Hispanics were without health insurance for all of 2001, compared with 20 percent of blacks or Asians, and about 10 percent of whites. Comment: Thanks to the Bush Administration...
US Ambassador slams conspiracy theorists - An editorial by US Ambassador David Welch published in Al Ahram of 20 September has irked Egypt’s journalists and highlighted US displeasure with repeated suggestions that someone other than Osama Bin Laden is behind last year’s attacks on America. The editorial, entitled "Time To Get The Facts Right," denounces the publishing of "incredible conspiracy theories without the slightest bit of evidence to back them up" in both state and opposition press. - Either Egyptian journalists are incredibly badly informed, he speculated, or they are "simply too upset with American policy on other issues to accept the reality on this one." - A riposte came quickly the next day, when a group of journalists, cartoonists and other "intellectuals" issued a joint statement calling Welch’s article "an American call for imposing restrictions on press freedom." They also asked the ambassador (whom they think the Bush administration should withdraw from Cairo) to "invite American mass media to seek facts and stop seeing the region through Israeli eyes only."
In Ukraine and Romania, Israeli citizens have been deeply implicated in running weapons to Iraq, one of Israel’s greatest foes and which it is bracing to fight if the US invades. Over the years, Israeli governments have been involved in clandestine arms shipments to various regimes (usually internationally despised right-wing dictatorships) in Africa, Asia and Latin America and organizations, including Colombian drug cartels, often through front companies operated by former officers of the Israeli military. - In August, a cargo of tracks for armored personnel carriers shipped from Israel aboard an Israeli freighter was impounded in Hamburg after German authorities received intelligence it was bound for Iran. This is another of Israel’s bitterest foes to whom it has sold weapons in the past in covert operations that are often an extension of Israel’s cynical and murky diplomacy in which the game seems to be to play both ends against the middle. - Whether there is any direct links between the Israeli government and the involvement of Israeli arms dealers there are some 2,000 registered in Israel in the alleged sale of Ukrainian or other weapons to Iraq is not known. The state has sanctioned arms sales to some strange customers in the past, but it is difficult to see what could be gained in allowing the sale of arms to someone like Saddam, particularly a system like the Kolchuga, which would give Iraq a distinct advantage in the looming conflict. We are told that the Kolchuga system, manufactured by the Topaz company in Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, can detect air or ground targets up to 800 kilometers distant but remains undetected itself because, unlike other systems, it emits no signals of its own which can alert pilots that they are being tracked. [...] The Americans, who would be quite happy to buttress their propaganda campaign against Saddam by accusing him of violating UN sanctions to upgrade his military capabilities, claimed they decided to move against Ukraine because they had authenticated tape recordings on which Kuchma is purported to have agreed on July 10, 2000, to deliver four Kolchuga units to Iraq through a Jordanian middleman for $100 million.
10-Month bin Laden Mystery: Dead or Alive? - Some American officers believe, is that Mr. bin Laden, who is 45 if he is still alive, died of sickness at Tora Bora and was buried somewhere in the heights, after the bombing interrupted the dialysis he needed to survive a longstanding kidney condition. This version has been tentatively supported by President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan, who has assigned 10,000 troops to the border areas to support the manhunt. General Musharraf has said he thinks it more likely that Mr. bin Laden is dead than alive.

London and Rome host anti-war rallies - Police told CNN that it was estimated that 150,000 had taken part while the organisers said the attendance was double that. - Italy's far-left Communist Refoundation party, which organised the event, said more than 100,000 people joined the march. Police did not immediately give any estimates. - Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said last week that Italy had a duty to support U.S. diplomatic and military efforts to disarm Iraq, and compared Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. The latest opinion polls suggest that almost 70 percent of Italians are against the idea of going to war with Iraq.
Anti-war protesters march to Cheney's house - Protesters, some holding signs that said "No Blood for Oil," blamed Cheney for pushing the nation toward war. Police estimated about 2,500 people turned out for the peaceful event.
Moscow condemns US-British air raids on Iraq - "Russia maintains that the US-British bombing not only complicates an already difficult situation in Iraq but presents obstacles to the search for a political and diplomatic solution to the Iraq question," the ministry added. Almost daily skirmishes are reported in "no-fly" zones enforced by US and British warplanes over northern and southern Iraq since the end of the 1991 Gulf War over Kuwait. Baghdad does not recognize the air exclusion zones, which are not sanctioned by any UN resolution. Comment: So, that means the US and Britain are renegades, like Israel, violatiing UN resolutions? Hmm... Talk about the pot calling the kettle "black."
Iraqi officials were to meet with UN arms experts in Vienna to discuss resuming inspections, under the shadow of US threats to enforce disarmament if necessary. - In Washington, the White House insisted Saturday that Baghdad must comply with any new UN resolution aimed at stripping Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. But Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan ruled out Iraqi cooperation on a new resolution. "The position on the inspectors has been decided, and any new measure intended to harm Iraq is unacceptable," he said.
France, Russia Rebuke U.S. on Iraq as Arms Experts Meet - Russia and France, both with veto powers in the United Nations Security Council which is to consider a U.S.-drafted resolution on Iraq, separately rebuked Washington. - In Iraq, three Democratic U.S. congressmen, wrapping up a four-day visit to Iraq to assess the humanitarian situation, said that war is not the answer to the standoff between the United States and Iraq. One of the three, Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington, proposed that former President Carter come to Iraq to check that U.N. weapons inspectors -- whose return is now being negotiated -- were able to do their work unhindered.
U.S continues its fight for immunity from International War Crimes Court - Washington, which fears its soldiers overseas could be vulnerable to politically motivated charges, opposes the International Criminal Court (ICC). Comment: Gee, what a concept! The guilty flee when no man pursues.
EU Ministers Oppose 'Regime Change' in Iraq - France, a veto-holding member of the U.N. Security Council, reaffirmed its opposition to a draft resolution threatening the use of force against Iraq and said setting "regime change" as a goal would violate international law. - Outspoken Belgian Foreign Minister Louis Michel led the charge against any military strike to overthrow Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. "I am totally against an attack, I cannot support it," Michel told reporters on arrival at the EU meeting. - Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh echoed his remarks. "It is only a question concerning weapons of mass destruction. We all reject Saddam Hussein, but the question is not to remove the regime, the question is to get rid of the weapons of mass destruction and that should be our common position," she said. "I can accept that Saddam Hussein is a terrible dictator, but it is not the objective of the U.N. to get rid of him. The objective and the goal is to get rid of the weapons of mass destruction," Lindh said. - German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said his government's opposition to any military action against Iraq and refusal to take part in such a war had not changed, despite Bush administration charges that it has "poisoned" U.S.-German ties. - He also disputed allegations by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld of a link between Iraq and the al Qaeda Islamic militants blamed by Washington for the September 11 attacks. "This isn't a matter of belief but a matter of checking. Our checks have found no substantiating evidence," Fischer said.
Palestinian child killed by Israeli fire in Nablus - A teenage Palestinian boy was shot dead by heavy machine-gun fire that hit him in the head as Israeli tanks moved into a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Nablus to re-impose a curfew. A report issued on Monday by Amnesty International said Israel's military and Palestinian militant groups had all shown "utter disregard for the lives of children and other civilians" in two years of bloodshed. - The London-based human rights group said more than 250 Palestinian children had been killed during the Palestinian uprising for statehood. More than 70 Israeli children have died, most of them killed by Palestinian suicide bombers, it said. Comment: Again we note, the likelihood that MOST "sucided bombings" are set up by the Israeli secret services is extremely high despite their endless efforts to blame it on the Palestinians.
Israeli soldiers opened fire at stone-throwing youngsters in the West Bank city of Nablus, killing a 10-year-old boy and wounding 18 children, Palestinian witnesses and medical officials said. The army had no immediate comment.
With pictures of a triumphant Yasser Arafat splashed across the front pages of the Israeli press, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon faced the political fall-out of his complete capitulation to his powerful ally Washington in ending the siege of the Palestinian leader. Sharon was given some breathing space to recover from his humiliating setback, as he jetted off to Moscow to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin and discuss Russian ties with Israel's arch-foe Iran. At home, the withering barrage of criticism was relentless, while in Ramallah, Arafat -- still flush with the triumph of surviving his second siege in five months -- resumed his normal business, meeting European diplomats in his battle-scarred Muqataa headquarters. Israeli newspaper commentators voiced near-unanimous criticism of Sharon's handling of a siege that drew international condemnation. The daily Maariv called it a "colossal failure." "The lesson for the future: The key to every Middle East deal is in the hands of Bush, him and only him," said Israel's Yedioth Ahronoth daily. At least 1,573 Palestinians and 601 Israelis have been killed since the Palestinian revolt began in September 2000 after peace talks stalled. Comment: Don't you find those numbers a bit one-sided?
Saudi Arabia Recalls Qatar Envoy - Ties between the two oil-rich neighbors have plunged to a new low over programs by the Qatar-based al-Jazeera television channel which the conservative kingdom sees as an affront to the Saudi royal family. Saudi newspapers that usually reflect official thinking have blasted Qatar for continued contacts with Israeli officials despite a pledge to cut all ties with the Jewish state. In August, Qatar played down a row with its powerful neighbor, saying the "misunderstanding" would not rupture ties.
British Prime Minister Tony Blair is expected to face stiff opposition to his backing for U.S.-led military action against Iraq from his own party members during the ruling Labour Party's annual conference. His policy of supporting the United States on a threatened military strike against Baghdad over its alleged proliferation of weapons of mass destruction has exposed Blair to strong criticism from his backbenchers at the conference in Blackpool. - Blair has rejected criticism of his approach, last week publishing a dossier which the UK government claims proves Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has amassed nuclear, chemical and biological weapons since U.N. arms inspectors left Baghdad four years ago.
Lili strengthens, becomes hurricane - The hurricane's maximum sustained winds had increased to near 75 mph with higher gusts, making it a Category 1 storm. Forecasters expected additional strengthening over the next 24 hours. The storm is moving west-northwest at near 10 mph. On this track, the center of the storm should be passing near the Cayman Islands later Monday and approaching the Isle of Youth and the southern coast of Cuba late Monday night and early Tuesday. - Lili could follow the path of its predecessor, Isidore, forecasters said. According to an extended forecast map, Lili could be knocking on the door of the U.S. Gulf Coast by Thursday morning -- a week after Isidore made landfall in the same area. Given the storm's current path, Lili might be about 200 miles due south of New Orleans by 8 p.m. Wednesday, the NHC said. - Meanwhile, a tropical storm watch was issued Monday for Bermuda as Tropical Storm Kyle lingered 215 miles south of the islands. Forecasters said the combination of Kyle's 45 mph winds and a cold front to the north was creating tropical storm-force wind gusts in Bermuda. Kyle, which became the Atlantic season's third hurricane last week before dropping off to a tropical storm, was poorly organized and nearly stationary with little motion expected Monday, according to the 11 a.m. Monday update. Predictions differ as to which way Kyle may go, but forecasters are eyeing one that has Kyle eventually heading southwest and crashing into the Bahamas and the northern coast of Cuba.
Partying with Ecstasy several times a night may damage key neurons in the brain and cause symptoms like that of Parkinson's disease, according to a study in monkeys. - A Johns Hopkins University researcher injected squirrel monkeys and baboons with three shots of Ecstasy, also known as MDMA, three hours apart, mimicking dosages "often used by MDMA users at all-night dance parties." He said the drug caused enduring damage to dopamine-producing neurons in the brains of the animals. - Parkinson's disease is a brain disorder triggered by the permanent loss of dopamine-producing nerve cells.
Barbra Streisand emerged from semi-retirement Sunday night, headlining a Hollywood gala that raised some $6 million toward Democratic efforts to take back control of Congress. - Streisand, a longtime backer of liberal causes and candidates, last week sent Gephardt a forceful letter urging him to stand up to President Bush on Iraq and chiding, "It is time for the Democrats to get off the defensive and go on the offensive."
Einhorn trial to begin this week - Einhorn, 62, is accused of killing Helen "Holly" Maddux in 1977 in their West Philadelphia apartment. He was arrested in 1979 for the beating death of the 30-year-old Maddux, whose mummified remains were found stuffed in a steamer trunk inside a closet. Einhorn fled the country in 1981 just before he was scheduled to go to trial in Philadelphia. He claimed at the time the CIA was framing him for Maddux's murder. - Actress Ellen Burstyn, singer Peter Gabriel and former Philadelphia city planner Edmund Bacon -- father of actor Kevin Bacon -- have been invited to testify as character witnesses by the defense. Cannon said they will not be subpoenaed. Comment: As many readers know, we have a particular interest in this trial and have written on the subject extensively in the context of psychopathy. All we can say about Burstyn, Gabriel, and Bacon, is that they are just names on the list of endless victims of psychopaths.
During the past two weeks, online payment service PayPal Inc. has been targeted by scam artists trying to get the personal information of its users, including credit card data, user names and passwords. On Sept. 16, an unsophisticated scam e-mail, slugged "PayPal Verification," was sent requesting users to log into their PayPal accounts "asap" to confirm they were still active users of the service.
September 29, 2002 - One of the great unsolved mysteries of the period leading up to 9/11 is the extent of an Israeli spy operation in the US uncovered by Carl Cameron of Fox News and widely reported, including in this space . As we all know, everybody spies on everybody, “friends” and foes alike. But this operation is believed to have been so extensive, and wide-ranging, that the real question in regard to Israeli foreknowledge of 9/11 is, as one US federal agent put it to Cameron, “How could they not have known?” Now, however, more evidence of the Israeli connection is emerging...
Both Israeli and US government officials scoffed at these charges as an “urban myth.” Their denials, however, were somewhat undermined by the leaking of the US government’s own report on “suspicious activities” by Israelis around US government offices and military installations. The report, culled from information supplied by numerous federal agencies, documents what is obviously a large-scale intelligence operation directed against US government facilities. Now more documentary evidence of the Israeli connection to 9/11 comes with the emergence of the US government’s own list of terrorist suspects, two versions of which Cryptome.com has obtained and posted, with the following information as to their provenance: [one list] has a number of American names as well, one Frenchman, and — lo and behold! — there is our old friend Dominik Suter, listed right between Eyad Suleiman, a native of Kuwait, and Sheikh Amed Salim Swedan, a Kenyan.
Suter, you’ll remember, is the fellow behind the mysterious Urban Moving Systems, whose employees were arrested after neighbors reported them laughing and cheering as they watched the World Trade Center burn. These five “Middle Eastern-looking men,” as described by witnesses, were Israelis: they were found with box cutters in their van, $4,000 in cash, and multiple passports. Police interrogated them for hours, and transferred them to a maximum security facility, where they were held for months. Their van was registered as the property of Urban Moving Systems: A raid on the Urban Moving Systems warehouse yielded computers, documents, and other evidence — of what, we don’t know. Suter, the owner of the company, refused all comment, and soon fled the country — to Israel.
The inclusion of Suter, an Israeli, and the front man for what even the Forward acknowledges was a Mossad operation, on an official list of terrorist suspects should silence, for good, those who dismiss the Israeli connection to 9/11 as a “myth,” urban or otherwise. [...] On that list, along with Mohammed Atta , and Zacarias Moussaoui, is not only Suter, but also five other Americans — or, at least, non-Arabs with US addresses. What’s up with that?
Only God, and the higher echelons of the US government, know for sure. What we do know is this: it is no longer possible to deny that the US government believes Israel had some connection to the events leading up to 9/11. The documentary evidence, along with the reported testimony of patriots within law enforcement, is accumulating to the point where it can no longer be ignored. Just how far does Israeli malevolence go? I’m afraid we’re about to find out...
Comment: The fact that the above documents and ideas are once again being "leaked" suggests to us that there are some crosses and double crosses in the hallowed halls of government that will be "gradually revealed."
As we have said before, and will say again, the Ultimate Objective of the US Consortium, demonstrated by the reams of evidence, is to destroy ALL Semites - Arabs and Jews together. This has been the agenda since the turn of the 19th century. It was the agenda behind the American funding of eugenics and Hitler. It was the agenda behind the formation of the state of Israel as a place to gather all Jews together to make it easier to destroy them. It is the agenda behind the pretended "friendship" of the US and Britain with Israel. It is the agenda behind their manipulations of Mossad to plan and execute the 9-11 attacks using mind controlled Arab pilots as patsies. It is the reason that there is so much evidence that the CIA, FBI, and other alphabet soup guys knew what was going on, but did nothing. It is the reason that Bush knew what was coming down, and did nothing. Mossad and Israel were falling right in line with the plans for the Final Solution.
Now and again, the facade slips, and those who pretend to be the friends of Jews are seen showing their true colors. A recent example is a series of remarks made by Billy Graham to Richard Nixon, revealed when 500 hours of Nixon tapes were released by the National Archives. Most were recorded between January and June 1972, but I can assure you, the attitudes behind closed doors in government have not changed even if the tactics have.
In the conversation with Nixon, the Southern Baptist evangelist expressed disdain for what he saw as Jewish domination of the media. "This stranglehold has got to be broken or this country's going down the drain," Graham said, agreeing with Nixon's own comments earlier in the conversation. "You believe that?" Nixon says in response. "Yes, sir," says Graham. "Oh boy. So do I," Nixon agrees, then says: "I can't ever say that but I believe it." "No, but if you get elected a second time, then we might be able to do something," Graham says, reassuring the president.
Just keep in mind that Nixon was pardoned by Ford, and George Bush I was appointed director of the CIA by Ford. I seriously doubt that the opinions of these guys have changed a bit. But they are now, oh so cleverly, using the Jews' own control of the Media to set Israel up for total destruction. And how easily and gleefully the Jews are taking the bait. Their priests have fed them so long with the lies that they are "chosen" and that Israel is theirs by right, that it's easy to make them hate their close kin, the Palestinians and its pathetically simple to dangle the carrot of "we'll help you get rid of those nasty Palestinians if you'll help us with Media spin control." And so, the Devil's bargain is struck.
The following commentary from the Jordan Star raises questions about the "Christian Zionist" pact. What the writer does not realize is the level of deception of those in power manipulating Christians to support Israeli agendas, all the while they are holding their own opinions exactly as those expressed in private by Billy Graham and Richard Nixon - caught on tape - a rare peek inside the minds of the Conspirators. When the author says "Politics makes strange bedfellows," I don't think he realized that the Jews are sleeping with the enemy.
Here is something for you to think about: As we have noted in our comments on the Pentagon Strike, this event is the smoking gun. Anybody with eyes and two neurons firing can examine the evidence and come to the inescapble conclusion that no Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon. That is a cold, hard, incontrovertible fact. You can take it to the bank.
Please, take the time to check all the links we have provided in the archives linked at the bottom of the page; read all the many theories; look at all the photographs; and most of all, THINK. You will find, as we did, that the "official government position" on this event is not just weak and contradictory, it is not merely arrogant and self-serving, it is obviously deliberate and bald-faced LYING. With all the questions about this event being asked, the government response is to make any investigation either impossible, or classified. At the same time, they are beating the drums of war and trying like crazy to create a distraction. And, for many Americans, it is working. Many Americans will nod their heads sagely and pronounce "Oh, you can't trust the government," and turn right around and believe every lie told to them because they trust the MEDIA!
However, as we have also revealed, the lions of Industry, including the MEDIA, seem to be party to this Fraud. The fact that an enormous number of them are Jews does not, however, suggest a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world as the REAL Conspirators would like for "conspiracy theorists" to think. That is only a smoke screen. It does suggest, however, that the Consortium has been "playing the Jews" by pretending to align with them, by pretending to have similar goals, by pretending to want to help them. It's the oldest Machiavellian trick in the book. And the Jews are falling for it hook, line and sinker.
Getting back to the Pentagon crash, the most important thing to think about is this: The current administration lied, and is continuing to lie about this crash. It was not a Boeing 757, and they are lying about it. That is the simple fact on which all other conjectures must be formulated. It is also a lie that the Mass Media is assisting in promulgating. So we may assume that they have a "joint agenda" at some level even if we think it is a pact among thieves.
We still must face the fact that the government has LIED about a 757 hitting the Pentagon.
We have provided some documentation as to the probable means of this strike: a drone craft modified to "appear" as an airliner with modified wings that would clip lamp poles as it dove for its target. We have shown the documentation that there is a "guidance" system that exactly describes the behavior of this "plane" as it homed in on its pre-programmed target. In short, all of the "anomalies" of the incident can be easily explained with current technology. There is no need for "holograms" or magical 4th density bait and switch games. Purely and simply, a deliberate strike was made on the Pentagon to produce a certain impression.
Why would the government lie about Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon?
What seems to be the most likely conjecture is that, just as Pearl Harbor was a strike against our military and aroused public support for a war, it was thought that a strike against the Pentagon would serve the same purpose. It also seems likely that the "planners" of this event felt that a strike against the military command center would serve the purpose of being perceived as an "act of war." We also notice that nothing the Administration has done since the 9-11 event has made any sense whatsoever if they were really concerned about "terrorism." It is all about a War without End.
Again: The smoking gun is the strike on the Pentagon and the obvious fact that the government lied and continues to lie about it. This is the weak link in the whole operation. This is the Achilles Heel of the Fraud being perpetrated as an "Attack on America." This is where the pressure needs to be applied. This is where the revelations will come from as to the true nature and intentions of the REAL TERRORISTS - the Bush Administration. And this is where we have to move to the next logical step:
If the government LIED about the attack on the Pentagon, WHAT HAPPENED TO FLIGHT 77 and its passengers?
Which brings us to the answer:
Our government is in the hands of men who think nothing of crashing commercial jets into large buildings; jets with human beings, their own citizens onboard; buildings full of human beings, their own citizens. Our government is in the hands of men who think nothing of planning and executing a precision strike against their own command center - the oldest Machiavellian trick in the book - to garner support and sympathy for nefarious objectives. And finally, our government is in the hands of men who obviously diverted and landed a commercial jet liner with innocent people on board, and cold-bloodedly murdered them - including children - to use their body parts to support the lie that a commercial jet crashed into the Pentagon - which it obviously did NOT.
In short, our government is not merely in the hands of LIARS, they are also MURDERERS and have committed TREASON against their own people. And even if they didn't do it with their own hands, even if they manipulated someone else to do it, they are as guilty as any "accessory after the fact." The crime of accessory after the fact, a common law felony, is committed when one who, with knowledge of another's guilt, renders assistance to a felon in an effort to hinder his detection, arrest, trial or punishment.
The definition of an accessory after the fact is one of ancient origin . . . [requiring that:] '1. The felony must be completed; 2. [Defendant] must know that the felon is guilty; 3. [Defendant] must receive, relieve, comfort or assist him.
"Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts, or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact. Except as otherwise expressly provided by any Act of Congress, an accessory after the fact shall be imprisoned not more than one-half the maximum term of imprisonment or fined not more than one-half the maximum fine prescribed for the punishment of the principal, or both; or if the principal is punishable by life imprisonment or death, the accessory shall be imprisoned not more than ten years."
What the attack on the Pentagon demonstrates clearly is that the Current United States Administration, and numerous Media moguls, physically did "receive, relieve, comfort, and assist" the individuals who committed the "Attack on America" on Sept. 11, 2001 by their incessant promotion of the idea that Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.
There is also "aiding and abetting." To find the current administration guilty of the 9-11 attack on America, it is not necessary to find that they personally committed the crime. They are guilty because it is evident that they intentionally helped [or encouraged] someone else to commit the crime. This was the "failure of Intelligence." It was intentional.
To find the Bush Regime guilty of the 9-11 attack on
America as an aider and abettor, we need only be convinced of the
following elements beyond a reasonable doubt:
"Whoever commits an offense against the United States, or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces, or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal. Whoever willfully causes an act to be done, which if directly performed by him or another would be an offense against the United States, is punishable as a principal." Aiding and abetting is a method of making a co-defendant equally culpable when another defendant actually carried out the substantive offense. A defendant need not be specifically charged with aiding and abetting to be convicted under 18 U.S.C. §2, but can be charged as a principal and convicted as an aider and abettor. Standefer v. United States, 447 U.S. 10, 100 S. Ct. 1999, 64 L. Ed. 2d 689 (1980).
"In order to aid and abet another to commit a crime it is necessary that a defendant 'in some sort associate himself with the venture, that he participate in it as in something that he wishes to bring about, that he seek by his action to make it succeed'."
What the attack on the Pentagon demonstrates clearly is that the Current United States Administration, physically did something to help [or encourage] the crime with the intent that the crime be committed.
With the growing world opposition to the agenda of Bush and the Warmongers, with the rising tide of questions being asked about the 9-11 events, and the growing awareness of the people that something just isn't "right" in the White House, just what do we think the Bush Gang is going to do next?
Just recently the Shrub has been reduced to the pathetic ruse of whining "Saddam tried to kill my daddy! Poor, poor, pitiful me!" They are really running out of excuses.
But remember, these are clearly cold-blooded killers with a LOT at stake here. If the right questions are asked, if the right agencies swing into action, Bush and the Gang run the risk of literally going to prison. This is not Watergate where a presidential pardon will stop prosecution. This is cold-blooded murder.
Now, the question: Do you think that, if their plans are thwarted, that they have anything to lose in trying even more daring tactics?
If so, what will they be? What can they do NOW to pull everything back on track that is rapidly going South on them?
Well, the first things that come to mind are 1) Produce another major "terrorist" attack of some sort. Who knows? They may even find it necessary to sacrifice a few of their co-conspirators to divert attention. 2) Suddenly discover that Israel is the REAL guilty party and declare the entire 9-11 event to be the responsibility of Mossad, which gives the US a good reason to just directly go after Isreal.
Those are just two possibilities. I'm sure the readers can think of others.
One thing is certain: the Bush Gang have gone too far over the line to pull back now.
Bush losing ground in diplomatic and political offensive on Iraq - Tom Daschle drew blood on the floor of the US Senate, denouncing the politicization of the prospect of a military offensive against Baghdad, which the Bush administration believes is assembling an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction. A draft resolution presented by the US leader to lawmakers would have earned him a blank check to wage a war against the leader that Bush on Thursday called "the guy who tried to kill my dad," a reference to former president George Bush.
Senator Ted Kennedy, older brother of the assassinated US president John F. Kennedy, said war should be "should be a last resort, not the first response."
Former vice president Al Gore offered the most searing criticism of the Bush administration's strategy of preemptive strikes against purported threats to the United States. "If what America represents to the world is leadership in a commonwealth of equals, then our friends are legion," Gore said at the Commonwealth Club, a respected San Francisco-based public affairs forum. "If what we represent to the world is an empire, then it is our enemies who will be legion."
Almost daily Bush comes back to his refrain: "If the United Nations Security Council won't deal with the problem, the United States and some of our friends will." However, the US leader has yet to elaborate as to who these "friends" are.
Comment: Daily I am appalled at the embarrassment of having this nincompoop as our president. Again I say, let's IMPEACH the whole lot of them.
Mass Protest in UK Against 'Bombers' Blair and Bush - Police put numbers lower, at 150,000. But that would still make it probably the biggest peace rally in Britain since a huge anti-nuclear demonstration in 1981 drew a quarter of a million. Not surprisingly, protesters directed their wrath at President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, America's closest ally in the build-up of pressure on Iraq. "Bomber Bush, Bomber Blair, we'll resist you everywhere!" chanted students. Effigies parodied the pair as war-mongers. Protesters shouted "shame" as they passed Blair's residence. Comment: You know, it's really strange how the news about this demonstration is just disappearing from the wire services and how the numbers keep changing.
Russia Stands Firm After Iraq Talks with U.S. Envoy - Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ivanov have said Iraq's agreement this month to allow U.N. arms inspectors back into the country is sufficient to avoid any use of force. Moscow says a British report issued this week contained no "clear proof" that Iraq held dangerous weapons.
Informed sources said Sunday that Russia was unhappy with a proposed new U.N. resolution setting down tough terms to Iraq on disarming because it could not be implemented. - The sources described experts in Moscow as "disappointed" with the text, saying: "In its current form, this resolution cannot be implemented by its very nature." - President Vladimir Putin and Ivanov have both said that no new resolutions are needed in order for the monitors to resume work stopped in 1998.
Iraq said Saturday it would not accept the new rules that the United States wants to impose on U.N. weapons inspections. - Under threat of force, the United States wants to radically change the ground rules for U.N. weapons inspectors in Iraq, demanding access to any site and protecting inspectors with a security force, according to those familiar with a draft U.N. resolution. - The proposed U.N. Security Council resolution, backed by Britain, would declare Iraq has already violated current U.N. demands and authorize military action if Baghdad fails to comply by accounting for its weapons of mass destruction.
Iraq said on Sunday U.S. jets had raided the Basra civilian airport for the second time in a week, targeting its radar systems and the passenger terminals. - An Iraqi military spokesman said U.S. and British planes on Saturday night attacked "civilian and service" installations in Qalat Sikur, about 130 miles southeast of Baghdad. - Sunday's raids took place at a time when three U.S. congressmen were visiting Basra to assess the humanitarian situation in the southern Iraqi city. They used the airport to travel to and out of Basra. Democratic Representatives Jim McDermott of Washington, David Bonior of Michigan and Mike Thompson of California returned to Baghdad aboard an Iraqi Airways plane six hours after the reported attack. "What thing worries me and my colleagues is if we got a war again we would simply double and triple the (humanitarian) problems we created in 1991," McDermott said.
Jim McDermott - who questioned U.S. efforts to link Iraq to the al Qaeda terrorist network - should "come home and keep his mouth shut," Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott said Sunday. "For him to be in Baghdad, the center of one of the most dangerous dictators in the world, with all kinds of weapons of mass destruction, to be questioning the veracity of our own American president, is the height of irresponsible," said Lott, R-Mississippi. "He needs to come home and keep his mouth shut."
McDermott said President Bush's goal of ousting Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein has overshadowed efforts to get Iraq to give up weapons of mass destruction, which Baghdad denies having. He also questioned Bush administration officials' recent contentions that Iraq and al Qaeda are linked. "Why do they keep coming back to this issue and keep trying to hook the Iraqis into that?" McDermott asked on CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer." "My question really is, why do they want the regime change? I would much rather have disarmament here. And what they're doing is really setting up to throw out Saddam Hussein." McDermott went further in an interview with ABC's "This Week." "I think the president would mislead the American people," he said. Comment: Duuuh! You don't say? You think Bush might mislead us? As for Bent Trent: "Birds of a feather..." and all that. We are seeing who is "in" and who is "out" of the conspiracy. I hope that voters will take note and ditch this Lott character.
A man was killed in what appeared to be a car bombing in the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh on Sunday, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Israel moved tanks and troops out of Yasser Arafat's compound on Sunday after saying it would lift its 10-day-old siege of the Palestinian leader's headquarters under pressure from Washington. - The Palestinian Authority issued a statement calling the pullback a "fake withdrawal" that violated last week's United Nations Security Council resolution to end the siege. "They must get out of our cities, towns and villages in compliance with the Security Council (resolution) and in compliance with all the world," said acting Palestinian cabinet minister Nabil Shaath. The pullback was an embarrassing climbdown by Israel, which had vowed to end the siege only when the suspected militants were caught. The about-face followed a message sent by President Bush to Sharon demanding a speedy end to the siege. The Washington Post newspaper, citing diplomats and other sources, said the Bush administration told Sharon the siege of Arafat was affecting U.S. Iraq policy. - At least 1,572 Palestinians and 601 Israelis have been killed in the violence.
Israeli special forces are operating inside western Iraq to locate missile launchers that could be used against Israel, according to a report in the recent issue of Jane's Foreign Report. Israeli officials refused to comment on the report. - The newsletter stated that "neither Israel nor the US has a clue about what, if anything, Saddam Hussein is hiding," and claimed it was this "ignorance" that prompted Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to assign the elite commando unit to carry out the job. - The report stated that the Israeli operation was being carried out without the knowledge of the US, a fact that could raise tensions particularly at such a sensitive period, when the US is attempting to garner support for an offensive against Iraq in the Arab world.
The official story from both the 82d Airborne and the regular Army command is that Operation Mountain Sweep was a resounding success. [...] But according to Special Forces, Afghan villagers and local officials living in or near the valley, the mission was a disaster. The witnesses claim that American soldiers succeeded mainly in terrorizing innocent villagers and ruining the rapport that Special Forces had built up with local communities. “After Mountain Sweep, for the first time since we got here, we’re getting rocks thrown at us on the road in Khowst,” says Jim, a Green Beret who has been operating in the area for the past six months. Special Forces members say that Mountain Sweep has probably set back their counterinsurgency and intelligence operations by at least six months.
Four people were killed in a gunbattle outside of the British embassy in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, witnesses said. However, official sources gave a completely different version of events, denying the embassy was targeted in the shooting and mentioning no dead. They said only three members of the security forces had been wounded in a gunbattle that erupted when police asked some tribesmen for their weapons. - The official account appeared to contradict that of embassy staff and witnesses who said four people were killed, including a bus driver, two policemen and possibly a third police officer.
A powerful explosion rocked a residential block near the US embassy in Kabul just hours before a scheduled visit by a senior US defence official. - "I think the aim was the American embassy or the military intelligence directorate which is just 500 metres (1,650 feet) from it," Salangi said. - Speaking at a rally before the march, consumer activist and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader urged the crowd to "roll back the forces of corporatism, oligarchy, plutocracy, dictatorship and reaction." - Joey Hipolito, one of the organizers of Saturday's protest, said he was distressed that police constantly referred to the marchers as a security risk. "We know the real security risk to our families' futures and ourselves is corporate greed and those institutions that support it," he said.

Yasser Arafat's compound has boosted support for the Palestinian leader and most Palestinians expect him to win January's presidential election, according to a poll released on Sunday. - The 10-day blockade of Arafat's compound in the West Bank city of Ramallah has shored up the leader's slumping popularity ahead of January's presidential and legislative elections and stalled Palestinian reforms key to resuming peace diplomacy. - The Palestinian-run Jerusalem Media and Communication Center survey said 60.6 percent of 1,199 Palestinians polled in the West Bank and Gaza Strip expect Arafat to be re-elected. That compares with 47.5 percent in June.
