The 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.
It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong. --Voltaire--

December 14, 2002 -Today's edition of As the World Burns Brought to You by The Bush Junta, Produced and Directed by the CIA, based on an original script by Henry Kissinger, with a cast of billions....
December 13, 2002 - Strong earthquake shakes China - The quake, with a magnitude of 5.9, struck Gansu province at 9:27 p.m. on Saturday, the State Seismological Bureau said. It was centered below the city of Yumen, about 900 miles west of Beijing. No injuries or damage were immediately reported, said an official of the bureau. He would give only his surname, Wang.
Keeping Track of John Poindexter - The head of the government's Total Information Awareness project, which aims to root out potential terrorists by aggregating credit-card, travel, medical, school and other records of everyone in the United States, has himself become a target of personal data profiling. Online pranksters, taking their lead from a San Francisco journalist, are publishing John Poindexter's home phone number, photos of his house and other personal information to protest the TIA program. Matt Smith, a columnist for SF Weekly, printed the material -- which he says is all publicly available -- in a recent column: "Optimistically, I dialed John and Linda Poindexter's number -- (301) 424-6613 -- at their home at 10 Barrington Fare in Rockville, Md., hoping the good admiral and excused criminal might be able to offer some insight," Smith wrote. "Why, for example, is their $269,700 Rockville, Md., house covered with artificial siding, according to Maryland tax records? Shouldn't a Reagan conspirator be able to afford repainting every seven years? Is the Donald Douglas Poindexter listed in Maryland sex-offender records any relation to the good admiral? What do Tom Maxwell, at 8 Barrington Fare, and James Galvin, at 12 Barrington Fare, think of their spooky neighbor?"
Smith said he wrote the column to demonstrate the sense of violation he felt over his personal records being profiled by secretive government agencies. "I needed to call Poindexter anyway, and it seemed like a worthy concept that if he's going to be compiling data that most certainly will leak around to other departments and get used, one way to get readers to think about it was to turn that around," Smith said. What Smith didn't realize was that Poindexter's phone number and other information would end up on more than 100 Web pages a week later as others took up the cause.
Phone-phreaking hackers supplied details on the Verizon switch serving the admiral's home. The popular Cryptome privacy-issues website posted satellite photos of the house. Poindexter could not be reached for comment for this story, and calls to his home phone now reach a recording: "The party you are calling is not available at this time."
Since the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency began awarding contracts for the Total Information Awareness project in August, the effort has been criticized by both civil rights advocates and data-mining experts. The dispute over TIA seems to fall not along straight political party lines, but between advocates and opponents of the government's right to monitor its own citizens.
Former President Clinton expressed support for the project in a recent public appearance, while conservative New York Times columnist William Safire recently wrote a pointed editorial criticizing the idea. One Bush voter, speaking on condition of anonymity, said of the pranks on Poindexter: "If they're making him as uncomfortable as we are, good."
At Ole Miss, Trent Lott helped lead a fight to keep blacks out of his national fraternity - in a little-known incident now four decades old. At a time when racial issues were roiling campuses across the South, some chapters of Sigma Nu fraternity in the Northeast were considering admitting African-American members, a move that would have sent a powerful statement through the tradition-bound world of sororities and fraternities. At the time, Lott was president of the intra-fraternity council at the University of Mississippi. When the issue came to a head at Sigma Nu's national convention — known as a "Grand Chapter" — in the early 1960s, "Trent was one of the strongest leaders in resisting the integration of the national fraternity in any of the chapters," recalls former CNN President Tom Johnson, then a Sigma Nu member at the University of Georgia.
Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of Caracas to demand that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez quit, and show support for a 13-day-old general strike that paralyzed the oil sector. The crowd massed along two kilometers (1.25 miles) of a four-lane highway in east Caracas in what organizers called "the biggest demonstration in the history of this country." Chanting "out, out, out", waving Venezuelan flags, banging pots and pans, protesters had marched from various parts of the city toward the Altamira neighborhood, where three people were gunned down during a December 6 anti-government rally. Speakers launched virulent verbal attacks on Chavez, insisting his resignation was to only way out of the crisis dividing the South American country.
United Nations inspectors examined a record number of suspected Iraqi weapons sites Saturday as opponents of President Saddam Hussein met in London in a US-backed bid to forge a common front.
Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz headed to the United States for talks on military coordination in light of a possible war on Iraq, as the army and Palestinian militants traded punches. For his part, Israeli Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was preparing to visit western Europe next week for talks on Iraq and international terrorism. During his four-day visit to the United States, Mofaz is due to meet with US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, national security advisor Condoleezza Rice and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, his ministry said, without disclosing details on the talks. The hardline defense chief's mission comes at a time of increased coordination between Israel and its chief ally the United States in anticipation of a possible US strike against Iraq. Israel is making preparations to protect itself against the threat of a retaliatory attack by Baghdad, as was the case during the 1991 Gulf War. Comment: You'd better make preparations to protect yourself against the threat of Nuclear obliteration by the United States! A nuke in Baghdad can have a long reach...
President Bush is expected to try to move swiftly to find a replacement for Henry Kissinger as chairman of a commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks after the former secretary of state abruptly resigned Friday due to conflict-of-interest concerns. - Victims' relatives have made no secret of their wish that former Sen. Warren Rudman of New Hampshire be named chairman, Knoller says. They regard him as highly qualified and independent. But they say the White House views Rudman as something of a maverick, and has no intention of naming him, Knoller reports. One family group source tells CBS News the White House has even told Lott not to pick Rudman for the panel under any circumstances. The family groups hear that former Senator Bob Dole may be under consideration for chairman, Knoller says. The relatives' groups have been skeptical about whether Mr. Bush wants a full investigation of the attacks, with a potentially embarrassing report due less than six months before the 2004 election. - CBS News correspondent Jim Stewart says the relatives are insisting that the new chairman have no conflicts of interest with any foreign governments and be willing to stand up to the White House, if need be, and issue subpoenas to get to the bottom of what went wrong on 9-11.
Embarrassed by the abrupt departure of Henry Kissinger as chairman of the commission investigating the 11 September attacks on America, the Bush administration came under mounting pressure yesterday to appoint an investigator with real teeth to ensure what one victims' spokesman described as a "pure, transparent and purely independent" inquiry. The name consistently touted by the victims' families is Warren Rudman, a former Republican Senator and co-author of a report which warned months before 11 September of the risk of an attack on US soil. The White House has so far resisted his appointment, leading to suspicion that President Bush is not interested in an investigation that risks embarrassing his administration. -
The administration has promised it will move quickly to replace Mr Kissinger, though probably not before today's nominal deadline for filling all 10 commission posts. In the meantime, it is facing criticism – for its reluctance to establish a commission at all, for its appointment of so polarising a figure as Mr Kissinger and for its apparent efforts to protect the confidentiality of Mr Kissinger's client list. "The pressure put on the Ethics Committee by the White House was untoward," the Democratic Senate whip Harry Reid told the New York Times. "They were berating our staff, saying he didn't have to file because he worked for the executive. I mean, come on. What were they trying to hide?"
The Bush administration's decision to kill people suspected of being terrorists threatens to thrust it into a murky area of national security and international law that is almost never debated in public, because the covert operations at issue are known only to a small circle of executive branch and congressional officials. - Still, some national security lawyers said the practice of drawing up lists of people who are subject to lethal force might blur the lines drawn by the government's ban on assassinations. That prohibition was first ordered by President Gerald Ford, and in the view of some lawyers, it applies not only to foreign leaders but also to civilians.
Hi-tech arms 'would finish war in a week' - With an armoury including satellite imagery that can distinguish a tank from a bus, even through thick cloud, to microwave bombs that can destroy electrical and computer systems without hurting civilians, military planners preparing for war are confident that any strike would be completed in little more than a week.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has ordered al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to stop exploiting the Palestinian cause to further his own interests. In an interview with Britain's Sunday Times newspaper, Arafat said he believed bin Laden and his al Qaeda network were using the Palestinian campaign for independence to gain support in the Islamic world. "Why is bin Laden talking about Palestine now? ...He never helped us. He was working in another, completely different area and against our interests," Arafat told the paper. "I'm telling him directly not to hide behind the Palestinian cause," Arafat said.
The founder and leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement, or Hamas, said Saturday that Palestinian resistance against Israeli occupation has no need for Osama bin Laden's al Qaida, denying Israeli reports the terrorist network had recruited Palestinians. Instead, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin accused Israeli intelligence agents of enlisting Palestinian collaborators and labelling them members of al Qaida "to equal Palestinian freedom fighters with al Qaida people."
A French judge has opened a judicial file against President Jacques Chirac on suspicions of "illegal acquisition of interest" in ancient and complicated business dealings involving Chirac's former Rally for the Republic Party, Le Monde newspaper reported in its Saturday afternoon edition. The inquisition, reportedly launched Thursday by Alain Philibeaux, investigating judge in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, refers to Chirac indirectly as "X" -- in recognition of Chirac's immunity from prosecution as a sitting president, the newspaper reported. That immunity was reinforced Thursday, when a specially appointed presidential commission agreed it was unconstitutional to bring a sitting French head of state to justice, except in cases of high treason. The commission's ruling follows that of France's Constitutional Council, a high level advisory body. There is no law against trying a president when he steps down from office. But there is also no certainty when 70-year-old Chirac will do so. The president's mandate ends in 2007, but he may run for a third term.
President George W. Bush said Saturday that he would ask the new Congress to approve his proposals aimed at boosting U.S. economic recovery and helping Americans return to work. "We will not rest until every person in America who wants to work can find a job," Bush said during his weekly radio address to the nation, days after he reorganized his economic team. - Democrats said the change in leadership was a signal that Bush's economic policies were not working. The president said the economy faces specific challenges that could slow recovery and limit future growth. Many Americans have little money left over after paying taxes, and some have debt that makes it difficult to save for retirement, he said.
The US is offering citizenship to entice foreigners to come forward with information about terrorists. "The people who have the courage to make the right choice deserve to be welcomed as guests into our country and perhaps to one day become fellow citizens," said US Attorney General John Ashcroft. - The "responsible cooperators programme" would defer deportation indefinitely for foreigners with visa problems and would allow outsiders to enter the country and eventually apply for citizenship. Foreigners must provide "reliable and useful" information that helps investigators track down terrorists or avert an attack, Mr Ashcroft said .
N Korea raises the stakes in nuclear standoff - In a new escalation of the crisis over its nuclear ambitions, North Korea threatened yesterday to remove United Nations seals and surveillance cameras from its nuclear facilities without waiting for the UN to do so. While the West threatens war against Iraq, in part to prevent Saddam Hussein's regime developing nuclear weapons, North Korea is pressing towards a confrontation with the international community over its own nuclear activities. The sale of its missiles to unstable parts of the world was also highlighted last week when a shipment of Scuds to Yemen was intercepted at sea. Washington reluctantly allowed the missiles through after concluding that international law did not prevent the sale. -
On Thursday, Pyongyang declared that it would reactivate its nuclear power programme, including firing up a mothballed atomic plant which US intelligence believes can make weapons-grade plutonium. In a letter to the UN's nuclear watchdog, the Inter- national Atomic Energy Agency, the North Koreans asked the IAEA to remove the seals and surveillance cameras at its nuclear facilities, placed there in 1994 to monitor an agreement with the US which froze their nuclear development. The IAEA asked it to act with restraint and co-operate with inspections, but yesterday Kim Jong Il's secretive regime sent the agency another letter, demanding the removal "at the earliest possible date". It went on: "If the IAEA fails to expeditiously take measures to meet our request, we will take necessary measures unilaterally." Comment: Gee, since George and the Gang started using that word, a lot of other folks have been picking up on it.
A Cornell University researcher from China has been convicted of stealing biological materials used in a university research project and trying to smuggle them to his home country. A federal jury on Friday found Yin Qingqiang, 38, guilty of theft of property worth more than $5,000 and making a false statement to an FBI agent. Yin, a former postdoctoral research associate at Cornell, was arrested July 28 at Syracuse Hancock International Airport after security officers found more than 250 vials, test tubes and petri dishes hidden in his luggage as he and his family tried to board a flight to Shanghai. Prosecutors contended he stole bacteria and yeast cultures for making an enzyme known as phytase, a livestock feed supplement that scientists think will improve livestock nutrition and reduce phosphorous excretion in animal waste. His goal, they said, was to secure a research job in China.
David W. Carson (age 85) and Edward H. Powers (age 61) were prosecuted for, convicted of, and sentenced for criminal defamation. Their crime? Using false words as weapons against the mayor, by publishing their political feelings in a tabloid called The New Observer, of which Carson is the publisher, and Powers the editor. According to the New York Times, "[t]he verdict [is] the first time since 1974 that a news organization in the United States has been convicted of such a charge." - Among other statements, Carson and Powers asked: "Is gossip that Marinovich lives in Johnson County true?" Had Marinovich actually lived in the more affluent Johnson County, she would not have been eligible to be mayor. In fact, it turns out, she lived in Wyandotte County after all: Carson and Powers' insinuation was false. -
District Attorney Tomasic swore out a warrant, and had Carson and Powers arrested for criminal libel. As was proper since he had himself been a target (and was a complaining witness, Tomasic then recused himself (but query whether it was proper for the admittedly biased Tomasic to issue the warrant in the first place). - At trial, Carson and Powers claimed they thought it was true that Marinovich and her husband did not live in Wyandotte County. The jury didn't buy it, though, and on July 17 of this year, found them guilty of all seven counts. - According to the AP, Farris told the jury, in his closing argument, that "You can't print a lie," explaining, "That's a crime in the state of Kansas and it's a misdemeanor -- some of us wish it was a felony." [...]
The operative statutory language for this case reads: "Criminal defamation is communicating to a person orally, in writing, ... information, knowing the information to be false and with actual malice ... tending to deprive such person of the benefits of public confidence." Nevertheless, if the extremely broad Kansas statute goes up to the U.S. Supreme Court, it may well be upheld. After all, the Rehnquist Court has never (to my recollection, at least) encountered a criminal statute it did not like, and is strongly in favor of state and local power to punish what is within the purview of a given state or locality. [...]
The First Amendment bar would be far better served to focus on getting all state legislatures to adopt a model criminal defamation law that addresses the truly criminal situations, such as those outlined above, and steers clear of legitimate media coverage. Instead, they usually take a position that provides a refuge for scoundrels. Indeed, referring to the culprits as scoundrels is too kind: These advocates would provide a haven for true criminals -- those who use words as weapons to hurt others, and are effectively immune to civil remedies.
Debunkery, Disinformation and Damage Control at its finest! - Fears Mount Over 'Total' Spy System - Notice how everything that was noticed by anybody is explained away as just a "misunderstanding" fostered by "a combination of left-wing activists, Islamist sympathizers of terrorist groups, civil libertarians, gun-rights advocates and mainline conservatives." Yes indeedy - George Bush and the Warmongers are just trying to protect us! Yeah, right. Add Waller to the list of possible CIA "assets." Just to get a general overview, have a look at our Timeline which has just received some major updating and is a work in progress.
Actors Say Hollywood's Being 'Pressured' to Make War Movies - Two American actors reportedly said the Bush administration is pressuring Hollywood to make war movies and violent films to "push" its war machine. - Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover told a press conference there is a struggle within the U.S. movie industry for "quality" versus movies "that bring in large amounts of money." -
They pointed out that Hollywood is presently controlled by huge corporations that determine what movies audience will or will not see. According to Radio Havana, they also said the war movies and violent films that are now in fashion are "molded by the interests of the Pentagon and the White House." -
Belafonte told reporters that, "More and more Americans are opposed to the war machine driven by (President) George W. Bush." He was quoted as saying, "The (anti-war) movement is growing among intellectuals and university students and expanding to many other sectors as well." Belafonte added that the Sept. 11 tragedy provided an "excuse" for Bush to move ahead with plans "to control the world militarily, economically and culturally." -
Belafonte added that the Sept. 11 tragedy provided an "excuse" for Bush to move ahead with plans "to control the world militarily, economically and culturally."
It is not the first time Belafonte has criticized the Bush administration. Last October, on a San Diego radio talk show, he criticized Secretary of State Colin Powell, comparing him to a house "slave."
"Colin Powell's committed to come into the house of the master," Belafonte said. "When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.
"In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master ... exactly the way the master intended you to serve him," Belafonte said.
Lawsuit for stalking and rape filed against Dubya on December 3, 2002 - I can't guarantee it is real, but it was sent to us and it looks real... Later: Yes, it's real. See: A Fort Bend County woman files a lawsuit on former Governor and current sitting President George W. Bush. Comment: If it's true, then Dubya is crazier than we all thought. But, from reading it, I have to say it sounds more like the plaintiff is ready for the rubber room. Pravda is having a field day with this one - and who knows - they may be on target. Those of you who have read Cleckley realize that true psychopaths seem to have a need to "refresh" themselves regularly with a "vacation" into filth and degradation. -
Pravda sez: There were some people in America, who tried to warn the American society that George W. Bush was not a mentally balanced man. They said that his conduct was suspiciously weird at times. Needless to mention that all those warnings stopped as soon as George W. Bush took the office of the American President. It was just said that it was a dirty elections method of his competitors. However, the society had to become concerned about their president after those warnings proved right. The White House press service had to think of many reasonable explanations to clarify Bush’s bruises or ridiculous slips of his tongue. Nevertheless, the monstrous acts of terrorism of September 11th made George Bush “innocent,” so to speak. He became a national hero - a sacred cow of the American democracy. Bush’s strange approach to the solution of various issues stopped being a surprise to anyone against the background of the patriotic outburst in the country. However, the people, who knew George Bush very well in his “pre-presidential life,” were not really surprised about rather a shocking piece of news. It became known that a resident of Missouri City, Texas, Margie Schoedinger, filed a lawsuit against the former governor of Texas and the current president of the United States. Comment: Now, for those of you who have read Cleckley's descriptions of the " hidden life of the psychopath," it all makes perfect sense.
Flashback! George Bush targets 60 nations in his war against terror, claiming that if weapons of mass destruction are not to fall into the wrong hands, up to one third of the world’s countries will have to dismantle terrorist cells and that America must be ready for “pre-emptive action”. [...] The arrogance of this speech and in George Bush’s discourse in general again rears its ugly head as the USA categorically declares war, in no uncertain terms, on any nation or group of people it unilaterally considers as “hostile”, namely any nation, or group of people, which does not walk hand-in-hand with what Washington dictates, whether this be in military, social, commercial or political policy. Comment: That certainly brings to mind:
13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. [Two horns? The WTC disaster? A big deception? The "excuse" for Bush to seize power?]
13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
[The "first beast" has been identified as the United States. Bush has seized all the powers of the United States into his own hands. "Worship" is "giving honor to," or "following" or even fearing...]
13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
[Either the WTC fraud, or an actual nuclear attack at some point.]
13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
[The first part suggests that the "miracles" are "deceptive" and thus we think that this refers to the WTC disaster which is a fraud from start to finish. The "image to the beast" is to become LIKE the beast, to emulate the beast, to become controlled entities of the beast.]
13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
[In other words, become controlled entities of the beast, support the policies of the Beast.]
13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
[In other words: "the USA categorically declares war, in no uncertain terms, on any nation or group of people it unilaterally considers as “hostile”, namely any nation, or group of people, which does not walk hand-in-hand with what Washington dictates, whether this be in military, social, commercial or political policy."]
Pravda: One would remember the USA’s involvement in the arming of the international terrorists who were the Mujaheddin, fighting against the legitimate regime of Dr. Najibullah in Afghanistan, led by Mullah Muhammad Omar and Osama Bin Laden.
One would remember the arming and training of the Albanian terrorists, the KLA, as they perpetrated unspeakable acts of cruelty against Serb civilians. One would remember the open military training and supply of the Ustache fascist terrorists of Croatia who massacred tens of thousands of innocent Serb civilians in Krajina.
One would remember the involvement of CIA-backed General Wiranto of the Indonesian Armed Forces in East Timor as US-equipped militia committed atrocities against civilians, even massacring hundreds of women and children who had taken refuge in churches.
One would remember the covert operations of the CIA in Operation Condor in South America, as fascist governments such as the murderous regime of General Pinochet were clinically placed in power, at the expense of thousands of civilians.
One would remember the arming of numerous terrorist organisations, by the USA, in Africa, to fight against the sovereign governments of their countries.
These policies are undeniable fact, these policies are immoral...and George W. Bush is either totally ignorant of his country’s recent past, or is a cheap, cynical hypocrite of the worst kind. Comment: Or he is, as observers and commentators suggest, a true psychopath.
Historic deal gives Europe 75 million new citizens - Europe sealed its historic enlargement to 25 nations and 450 million people last night. The deal followed frantic horsetrading over the subsidies to be offered to the mainly ex-Communist countries. After two long days of negotiations at the EU summit in Copenhagen, the Czech Republic, Hungary and the biggest prospective member, Poland, conceded, claiming they had squeezed more money out of EU coffers. "It was a good deal," said Leszek Miller, the Polish Prime Minister. "We are finally shedding the shadow of Yalta and the post-war division of Europe." Comment: Not only that, but Europe is preparing for the final act of the End Time drama: the destruction of The Beast Empire. Just as Plato described it, the ancient "Athenians" defeated the evil empire of Atlantis. In this "replay" of the cycles of history, America takes the role of Atlantis. So who is "Athens?" The European Union.
North Korea ready to deal "bitter defeat and death" to a threatening United States. - "The DPRK remains unfazed as it has made full preparations to cope with the confrontation and clash with the Yankees," a commentary in the ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmun said. "The army and people of the DPRK with burning hatred for the Yankees are in full readiness to fight a death-defying battle," said the commentary, carried by the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). DPRK is the acronym for the communist North's official title, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. With more than one in 20 of its 23 million people in military uniform, North Korea is the most heavily militarized country on earth. Comment: And you can bet that they will back SoDamn Insane. Oy. Georgie Porgie sure has got us into a mess. Well, let's be honest. It's the Secret State, the CIA and other alphabet soup guys, of which Georgie's old man is one. Which reminds me: if George Senior were such a great guy, why isn't he slamming the offspring with criticism? After all, of all people, he should be able to see that Dubya is railroading the entire country into a Fascist State. His silence is deafening.
Aziz Says US, Israel Want to Destroy Iraq - Iraq accused the United States and Israel on Saturday of planning its destruction behind a smokescreen of accusations about doomsday weapons. "The Arab nation should not be deceived by false excuses voiced by America and the Zionist imperialism that they are launching aggression on Iraq to eliminate its weapons of mass destruction," Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tareq Aziz said. "America and its ally, Zionism, are employing their means of deception in order to destroy Iraq," Aziz said in a speech at the start of a poetry festival in Baghdad. Iraq, he said, was well prepared to achieve victory "whatever the difficulties and sacrifices." Comment: Well, he's partly right. The United States ALSO intends to destroy Israel and are using Israel's favorite enemies as the carrot to gain the support of the Jewish controlled media in this country. It's a game as old as Time, played over and over again by traitors to humanity. A good example is Hitler's deal with Stalin - which he never intended to honor - to just steal Poland, eliminate the Jews and Poles, and get what they wanted: Lebensraum. Well, the Arab territories are the new Poland, and Israel plays the role of Russia this time around the cycle. And, of course, George Bush is the new Hitler.
For Victims of Vaccine, Winning Case Will Be Hard - People injured by the smallpox vaccine will be able to sue only one defendant, the federal government, and experts who have studied the relevant laws say it will be difficult for anyone to win compensation for injuries or deaths caused by the vaccine. In the Homeland Security Act, signed by President Bush on Nov. 25, Congress shielded doctors and vaccine manufacturers from liability for injuries suffered by people who take the vaccine. If the federal government authorizes use of the vaccine, the law says, anyone giving or producing it will be "deemed to be an employee of the Public Health Service," and the government will become the only defendant. An injured person can pursue compensation under the Federal Tort Claims Act, but lawyers said it would be difficult to win money under that 1946 law. "The government can probably escape liability for almost all injuries," says an analysis by Prof. Edward P. Richards and Dr. Katharine C. Rathbun of Louisiana State University.
An increasing number of federal agencies are pursuing plans to use pilotless surveillance aircraft to help patrol the Mexican and Canadian borders, protect the nation’s major oil and gas pipelines and aid in other homeland security missions. Incoming Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John Warner, R-Va., said in an interview Tuesday that he will ask President Bush to explore the possible deployment of such aircraft, known as unmanned aerial vehicles or drones, by civilian agencies responsible for homeland security. The drones would be similar to those used in high-profile missions by the CIA and U.S. military to target suspected Taliban and al Qaeda operatives in Afghanistan. Comment: That's rich! That is exactly the type of aircraft that hit the Pentagon. And the programs that run them are exactly what was installed in the 757's that hit the World Trade Towers.
India launched a blistering attack on Pakistan for releasing the leader of a hardline militant group fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, as police killed two suspected Muslim militants in New Delhi. "It is quite clear that Pakistan is continuing with its policy of terrorism as an instrument of its state policy in violation of international law and its own publicly declared commitments," Indian foreign ministry spokesman Navtej Sarna said. He was reacting to an announcement in Islamabad that Maulana Masood Azhar, the head of Jaish-e-Mohammad, one of the most militant of the groups fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, had been freed. "Whether Pakistan has an unvarnished military dictatorship or an electoral varnish is put on it, their mindset and policies, as evidenced by the putting back in circulation of Masood Azhar, remains unchanged. "We will of course continue to take the necessary steps to safeguard our national security," Sarna said. Comment: Of course, this item is crucially interesting due to the role that Pakistan played in the World Trade Center attack as well as the role India's intelligence service played in uncovering the link between Mohammed Atta and the White House.
In the capital Seoul, an estimated 50,000 people crowded into streets surrounding City Hall, waving banners and giant US flags ready to be torn apart, and chanting slogans calling for changes to the controversial Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) which regulates relations with the 37,000 US troops stationed in South Korea. Student radicals among the crowd demanded the outright withdrawal of all US troops.
An Army helicopter on a training mission crashed while returning to Fort Rucker, (Alabama) killing two pilots, authorities said Friday. The U.S. Army Aviation Center said the AH-64D Longbow Apache crashed Thursday night about 12 miles from Fort Rucker's main post. The cause of the crash was under investigation. Fort Rucker, about 100 miles southeast of Montgomery, is home to the Army Safety Center, which investigates crashes of Army helicopters worldwide. The victims were identified as instructor pilot Don L. Brown, 48, of Enterprise, Alabama, and 1st Lt. Stephen J. Valent, a 31-year-old student pilot from Scottsdale, Arizona. "We are deeply saddened by the loss of these two pilots," said Lt. Col. James Bullinger, command spokesman. The pilots were conducting routine flight training when the helicopter was reported missing about 10 p.m. A ground and air search began after attempts to contact the aircraft by radio failed. The helicopter was found about 6:20 a.m. Friday in a wooded area. Comment: This strikes me as interesting after reading Dolan's explanation that many "training flight crashes" were related to UFOs. I wonder if any UFOs were sighted in the Alabama area at the approximate time of the crash?
More kindergartners getting suspended - One hit a pregnant teacher, another exposed himself and another stabbed a classmate with a pencil. - In the first four months under new schools chief Paul Vallas, 33 kindergartners have been suspended from Philadelphia public schools, up from just one during the same period last year.
Comment: Dare I suggest that this is a result of what the C's have described as an intentional breeding program designed to produce more Organic Portals? Are the kids known as "Indigos" or "psy-kids" really OPs? Is Dr. David Jacobs correct? Dr. Jacobs says that now, after all of these years of research, that he KNOWS what the aliens are here for and he is afraid. David Jacobs says that producing offspring is the primary objective behind the abduction phenomenon. Dr. Jacobs writes:
We have, of course, discussed the problem at length in our articles on psychopathy. But one of the subjects of said articles, in a typically psychopathic way, has objected strenuously to the C's information about Organic Portals writing:
[Note: We are curious as to what the author considers " aggressive cultic behavior?" As we have noted, labeling any group a cult is one of the chief techniques of COINTELPRO. However, we suspect that it is simply the fact that we would not turn all our work over to him, and our group over to his guidance so that he could grow rich and fat on the cult he wanted to create with himself as guru.]
[Unfortunately, it seems that the author is sadly behind the times in terms of reading the reams of research done on the subject of Psychopaths and the less toxic version, the Organic Portal. He is deceiving his readers by pretending that the psychopath/OP is not - as Dr. Hare describes it - the most costly and damaging psychological problem in our world today. Brenden Maher's important work devoted to current problems of psychiatry and psychology published in 1973, says about Cleckley's work:
Cleckley himself conveys his speculations about the inner landscape of the psychopath and it would be useful for the reader to pause a moment, read Cleckley's comments carefully, before resuming this commentary.
Now, the reader certainly has a much better understanding of the problem faced in any study of the psychopath. It reveals to us something not quite human yet with full access to the machinery of the human brain. And, as Cleckley notes: "It is not necessary to assume great cruelty or conscious hatred in him commensurate with the degree of suffering he deals out to others. Not knowing how it hurts or even where it hurts, he often seems to believe that he has made a relatively mild but appropriate reprimand and that he has done it with humor. What he believes he needs to protest against turns out to be no small group, no particular institution or set of ideologies, but human life itself." And this is most certainly descriptive of the author of the comments of our critic, not to mention the fact that it reflects the entire flavor of COINTELPRO (see our article: COINTELPRO and the Speed of Light). So, to continue with the "debunkery":
There is an interesting little deception in the above quote from our pages. In the actual article being quoted, the list goes as follows:
It is an interesting question as to why the author first of all describes the C's as "discarnate entities," which, as the many articles on this site declaim, is NOT the case. And then he includes a comment of the C's as having been made by a "member of the cult." According to the standard definition of a "cult," it is a group that uses manipulation to take over the minds of its followers. And here we see two examples of the very sort of deceptive manipulation that cults utilize: disinformation, truth mixed with lies and twists. And it seems that our OP Poster Boy is true to the type. To continue:
Again we see an interesting "sleight of words" trick. The fact is, the OP hypothesis adequately explains a problem of psychiatry that has long been a thorn in the flesh of mental health professionals. What is more, it does so without blaming the individual. In other words, OPs are no more responsible for their behavior, for the fact that they are born that way, than a cat is responsible - and to be blamed - for being a cat and liking to toy with, torture, and eat mice. It is what it IS. And, given such a perspective, it becomes a simple matter to forgive, to understand, to deal with such individuals effectively. In fact, Mr. Bridges himself is a beneficiary of this "doctrine," because once we understood his true nature, it was no longer possible to feel hurt by his actions, to hold rancor against him for his lies and truly vicious behavior or to even take him seriously. Once we understood the "nature of the beast," it became easy to "read" what was behind his activities and words and to hold no ill-will toward him at all. He remains, however, one of the most important individuals we have ever encountered because of the "lesson profile" offered by our interactions, and he has been the means by which thousands of readers have had the opportunity to observe and learn and later, to apply the lesson of the OP/psychopath in their own lives. To continue with his commentary:
Actually, this is an inflammatory assumption made by Mr. B in his "twisting and distortion." The C's have said that originally, OPs were the "bridge" between densities, which was a natural function. And, for the most part, they still function that way. The exceptions are those being utilized as "portals" for negative forces at higher levels, which is a coopting of their natural function. Deliberate, we should add.
Whoa! What a rant! It seems that this Organic Portals issue is certainly one that COINTELPRO and the denizens of 4th density STS really want to cover up or discredit ASAP. Actually, it reminds me of a joke I heard when I was a kid. It was about a man who bought a bag of guavas at the vegetable market and forgot about them, leaving them in his car for several days in the heat. He went out one morning to discover every cat in the neighborhood frantically trying to cover the car with dirt. Those of you who know what a guava is and how they smell when they are spoiled will get it instantly.
In my book Ancient Science, which, as many of you know, is a major portion of the text of Noah which we published under a different title without any prior announcement in order to manuever around the opposition that had been put in our way regarding this book, I added some of my research into early Christianity - which finally began to make sense with the addition of the Mouravieff material as well as our developing understanding of psychopaths and what we were calling "garden variety psychopaths," but which the C's - with their careful precision with words - designated Organic Portals.
The following is excerpted from Ancient Science and is the segment that deals with the issue of early Christianity. The C's have confirmed Jesus as a real individual who achieved "the Gift of the present," as the alchemists describe it. They have also told us that the teachings of the man around whom the Jesus myth was created were, like everything else that might truly help humanity, subjected to what we call Cosmic COINTELPRO. So trying to see back into the mists of the past in order to determine what might be true, I put together the following clues:
Notice that the description given here is entirely in keeping with what the C's have said about the "original purpose" of the OPs. It is also important to note that the pre-adamic humanity does, indeed, contrary to the disinfo being spread by Bridges, have the possibility of developing the higher centers, or the "soul," in the NEXT cycle - depending entirely upon whether or not the "souled" humans of the present day can activate that possible future. In other words, the possible future of the OPs is highly dependent upon the possible future of souled humans, and this is why the OPs have been coopted by negative 4th density STS - to PREVENT that possibilitye. They wish to make the only possible future one in which they and their evil minions are in control of planet earth. (See Adventures Chapter 36 for a wrap-up of this idea.) Getting back to the excerpt from Ancient Science:
This, of course, brings us to the issues we face with the activation of many agents of 4 D STS such as Bridges. They seem to be the same issues faced by the early Christians who, it seems, were being taught something VERY similar to what the C's have taught, supported by other sources, including Gurdjieff, Eastern Orthodoxy, Sufism, archaic shamanism, Castaneda, Mouravieff, and perhaps others of which we are not yet aware. So, we stand in very good company. In fact, it should be noted that the favored "authority" of Bridges' cohort, Weidner, is Rene Guenon, who launched very similar attacks against Gurdjieff himself. Unfortunately, in his synthesis of the Eastern Orthodox tradition, and his attempts to present it to the esoteric community, Mouravieff fell under the influence of Guenon and other occultists, so one has to take that into consideration when reading Mouravieff. Ignore the politics and speculations, and just stick to the Traditional explications.
And we seem to be the modern day heirs of the Tradition... and let me tell ya, it is NOT gonna be easy.
