I Am Fed Up With Blogger Crashing All Over The Place


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

I am leaving Blogspot.

Click here for the new Culture of Life News.
Blogger has been limping along for quite a while. They promised us, the last big crash, all was well and they had new systems.

Well, these systems failed hugely in the last three days leaving my news service in tatters, fouling up the postings and in general, making life impossible. So I decided to move over to "pay for" service which means I can communicate with someone when something happens. Blogger didn't even have the decency to inform us what was going on when the system crashed this last three times.

I am sorry about forcing regular readers to change URLs and do all the annoying updating but I hope this is the last time this news service has to pack the bags and move. There will be some instability here until I and my progeny rearrange the cyber furniture to fit my particular style and needs so in advance, I'm sorry for any inconvenience or difficulties.

Since this site isn't free like Blogger, I have added a "Tip Jar" for anyone interested in making donations. Everyone on line is looking for this. My overhead is under $25 a month, the time I spend posting and doing art is a whole different subject. My ability to produce swift artwork has vastly improved while posting this news service during the last year. Anyone interested in commissioning cartoons can contact me at emeinel@taconic.net.

I hope this will be a much better blog when I am done. I have some ideas as to how to build it. And any suggestions, criticisms, wittisisms or whateversisms readers want to inflict on me, go right ahead and unload on me!

Just don't mistake me for a quail! Heh!

Thank you, everyone,
the Editor and Artist, Culture of Life News

Pax America Collapses Due To Warmongering


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Israel, a violator of nonproliferation, claims the right to unilaterally attack Iran if they do the same thing Israel has done. Japan and America fire off interception missile even as Japan openly mocks China yet again. Russia, under attack by America, strengthens ties with China, America encourages India to expand nuclear weapons stockpiles, America attacks China's human rights records so China returns the favor, pointing out how America is just as bad if not worse.

From Reuters:
If the U.N. Security Council is incapable of taking action to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, Israel will have no choice but to defend itself, Israel's defense minister said on Wednesday.

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz was asked whether Israel was ready to use military action if the Security Council proved unable to act against what Israel and the West believe is a covert Iranian nuclear weapons program.

"My answer to this question is that the state of Israel has the right give all the security that is needed to the people in Israel. We have to defend ourselves," Mofaz told Reuters after a meeting with his German counterpart Franz Josef Jung.
The idea that one has an unilateral right to attack, pre-emptively, anyone who might at some future time, be a possible attacker is the standard the USA has created. This is a recipe for hairtrigger wars which is what the UN was supposed to prevent.

During the Cold War stalemate, at various times, both huge empires in this deadlock used proxy states to poke at each other but whenever it came to direct conflict, one or the other would back down. Today, thanks to Pax Americas, we see everyone threatening everyone else. The rank hypocricy of the present sword rattling is particularily noxious. Americans imagine that being hyper armed with hair trigger nukes is perfectly fine and waving our other weapons in front of other countries' faces is perfectly OK but no one else may do this. We recently threatened China demanding they stop building up their military, for example.

Israel kidnapped a scientist from England who exposed the building of illegal nukes by the Zionists. He is now out of prison but is denied the ability to talk about this stuff with the media not that the media in America is allowing anything Mr. Vanunu says appear here! As usual, Israel can kidnap, assassinate, lie, spy, cheat or openly steal and our rulers shrug it all off. But then, when others do far less, suddenly our rulers are furious and demand justice. Not that they care about justice, it is only another tool to attack yummy targets of their lusts and desires.

China is increasingly angry about the Taiwan issue as well as the incessant reports about how evil China is coming from the world's number one police state, the USA. I still remember our propaganda during the Cold War, about how we loved democracy and voting and all that and then those pesky people in the South, demanding the right to vote, would screw up the propaganda schemes. One of the many reasons Hoover who ran the FBI hated Dr. Martin Luther King so much. This is also why our government was forced to pass the Civil Rights Act. We had to have some connection with reality while bellowing about freedom and democracy.

The vote stealers running the country today love to talk about voting. This seriously irritates other world leaders who play the same tricks the GOP games. They are very angry about our fake interest in freedoms.

From Xinhua Net:

China issued Thursday the Human Rights Record of the United States in 2005 in response to the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2005 issued by the U.S. State Department on Wednesday.

Released by the Information Office of China's State Council, the Chinese report listed a multitude of cases to show the serious violations of human rights both in and outside the United States.

"As in previous years, the U.S. State Department pointed the finger at human rights situations in more than 190 countries and regions (including China) but kept silent on the violations of human rights in the United States," says the document.

To help people realize the true features of this self-styled "guardian of human rights," it is necessary to probe into the human rights abuses in the United States in 2005, it says.
One wishes the USA would just grow up. All the time, I see articles written by right wingers that all love to say how "young" America is. Well, we are very old, we built a democracy that was pretty ricketty and jerry-rigged for quite a few years and when we finally go the Civil Rights Act, this was all dismantled via changing the rules controlling the media allowing rich people to buy up all the media outlets and spew only rank right wing propaganda and taking over the voting mechanisms so with a flick of the wrist, vote tallies can be faked.

Here is an example of the nasty police state brutal mind control businesses our corporate masters are building up at our own expense, we are paying for this junk: From SCL:
An Opcentre is a command facility for strategic communications.

In this always-ready environment researchers can identify target audiences using highly advanced statistical models, strategists can orchestrate campaigns using the most effective scientific methods and media producers have access to innovative production techniques.

These units of expertise combine to create one of the most dynamic and influential ‘weapons' in the world.

An Opcentre puts influence, control and power back into the hands of the government and military, giving them greater power to influence the enemy in time of conflict and enhanced access to their citizens during a crisis. For instance, an Opcentre can be designed to override all national radio and TV broadcasts, allowing the government and military to communicate with the public as the need arises.

The Opcentre is a formidable tool for Homeland Security, Conflict Reduction, International Public Diplomacy and un-mediated Government communications.
Big Brother needs scared people afraid of war so He can wage war in the name of peace. Seeking eternal security, the police state has to control all people in all places at all times. Shock and awe coupled with death and destruction is supposed to produce happiness and security the bully-boy way.

The classic method of producing security via diplomacy has collapsed with Israel and their puppet state, the USA. On behalf of the belligerent state in the Middle East, the USA is reduced to snarling at close former allies. Meanwhile, the other super powers are merging. From Xinhua Net:
Russian President Vladimir Putin will pay a state visit to China from March 21 to 22, a visit which analysts say will facilitate the pragmatic comprehensive cooperation, including energy cooperation, between the two countries.

"President Putin's visit aims to enrich current Sino-Russian cooperation by launching more pragmatic and down-to-earth programs since China and Russia began carrying out most of their cooperation at the government level in the previous years," said Jiang Yi, a researcher from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS).

With regards to energy cooperation, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Thursday that "energy cooperation between China and Russia is mutually beneficial and complies with the interests of both countries."

Qin described energy cooperation as a major part of Sino-Russian comprehensive cooperation, saying "China will work with Russia in an effort to enhance cooperation in the energy field."

China and Russia have agreed to ensure a steady oil supply to China by rail, promising an annual supply of at least 15 million tons of oil as of 2006, according to a communique issued by the two governments last year.
China is preparing for WWIII. I suppose they see this as inevitable at this point, judging from the way the USA's dicator is reacting. They won't fight it over Iran, Iran is too far away, Russia is much closer and Russia doesn't want to see Americans wrecking Iran while strengthening bases on their own perimeter. So both Russia and China have many reasons to bar American/Israeli attacks on Iran and Iran knows this. For public consumption, Russia and China ritualistically speak out against nuclear proliferation and of course, they both silently point to the recent USA/India pact that cements nuclear technology assistance to a violator of nuclear proliferation.

Meanwhile, Japan continues to poke at China. From Xinhua Net:
China was "shocked" by the Japanese Foreign Minister's recent remarks which contradict the China-Japan Joint Statement, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang on Thursday.

Qin said at a regular press briefing that China strongly protested against the remarks that grossly interfere in China's internal affairs.

When speaking with a parliamentary committee, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso called Taiwan "a country".

Qin said the Taiwan and historical issues between China and Japan form the important basis of ties between the two countries. Japan has "made the commitment" in the three political documents governing the Sino-Japanese ties and China hopes Japan will strictly abide by it, Qin said.

The three documents are the China-Japan Joint Statement, the Peace and Friendship Treaty and the China-Japan Joint Declaration.
World Wars have started over less, you know. People who can't understand how or why massive wars break out should take a closer look at history. Namely, reading diplomatic cables from the year before WWI or the year before WWII started, one can clearly see the outlines of what is going to explode. The other thing to look at is the industrial health of the leading empire in each case. This is where historians often stumble since they look to individuals rather than inevitable economic forces. Since the massive (ILLEGALLY GAINED!) British Empire has to be "the good guy", historians overlook the real lesson of WWI and WWII: all empires force world wars because this is the only way to fight them as they collapse internally.

America is collapsing. Our rising violence is a symptom of this collapse. The bellows we are hearing is the sound of a mighty beast stuck in the tar pit, flailing about. Americans are passively watching the Punch and Judy show going on over Iran as if this is some distant matter and all we have to do is insure that oil state can't defend itself from us and all will be well. Europe, the old Maid of Imperialism, is terrified of Iran having nukes because they plan to suck Iran dry even more than America dreams this since they are physically much closer. They already know that Russia has its claws around their collective necks and they hope to throw off Russia by conquering Iran's oil fields. This is an insane dream. And the saddest part is, Russia has a huge customer for their oil products: China! China has to go to a lot of trouble to get oil from Iran but Russia can pipe this stuff directly to China.

America is relying more and more on oil that has to travel far in expensive ships that are also very vulnerable. This is another reason for our rising panic here at home. Unlike WWI and WWII, our vulnerablilty is much greater since all others have to do is stop the conveyor belt which is causing more than a quarter of the world's resources to flow to America.

And cutting this off is ridiculously easy. As I keep warning my fellow citizens. Japan can't suck up $500 billion in red ink every year just for our government nor can they suck up another $900 billion in lopsided trade.

Which takes us back to the Middle East. The despots there are pouring money into buying up American ports, American businesses, bribing American politicians via lobbyists. From the WP:
Middle Eastern investment in the United States is once again picking up steam, showing big gains since the tense period following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. And while some takeovers are triggering alarm -- most famously, the purchase by a Dubai-owned company of a seaports management firm -- others are evoking warm welcomes.

Spearheading the trend is Dubai's Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktum (popularly known as "Sheik Mo"), ruler of the freewheeling city-state, which is part of the United Arab Emirates. The ports deal is just one of a series of recent purchases by companies he controls.
They have figured out all of America is now for sale and they are buying, big time. Israel has to first suction money out of America before getting enough to bribe politicians into obeying them rather than the now disposessed American voters whereas the rich Sheiks can buy direct, cash and carry. Thanks to the high price of oil.

They don't want to see a nuclear Iran because of ancient grudges. So they push us into confrontation where they get to sit on the sidelines and make money while we die. And worse, trot back over here to use the money gained in milking our military machine and spend it here, buying up our military/industrial complex. This is so stupid. This ring around the rosey is missing someone: the American populace who are confronting huge cuts in social services, wages, inflation and outsourcing. We come dead last.

This is why Bush was praising India for stealing American jobs. This is why the ports funneling all that Asian stuff is going to be moved to Mexico so we don't even get the transportation jobs! From the Monthly Review:
Capital’s relentless search for cheap labor constantly alters the flow of surface transportation in North America with widespread consequences. The end-of-century deindustrialization of the United States and importation of cheap commodities from the Far East through the West Coast reversed historical east-west transportation patterns and established Los Angeles and Long Beach as the largest ports in the nation. To minimize transportation costs, which for many products are higher than the cost of production, intermodal transportation of containerized imports was developed. Manufactured goods are packed into mobile shipping containers at factories in the Far East and travel by ship, train, and truck to distribution centers and, ultimately, consumer outlets across the United States. Currently, intermodal transportation of cheap imported commodities is the lifeline of the American economy. In 2004, the Port of Los Angeles processed 7.3 million container units and Long Beach handled 5.8 million. These two ports alone accounted for 68 percent of the West Coast total and are, by far, the largest employers in California. U.S. workers, who have seen so many lucrative manufacturing jobs moved overseas, assumed that import transportation and distribution jobs could not be offshored and were, therefore, relatively secure.
This is ridiculous. We are all New Orleans. The barriers that should protect us are blown up and the sea is rushing in and we are drowning.

Which is why the sabres are rattling, the swords are being drawn, the shouting is loud and our dictator wants total power so he can "protect" us.

Criminals. They are traitors and criminals.

Congress Makes UNCONSTITUTIONAL Spying Without Warrants Legal


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Without even any investigations of Bush and Gonzales breaking the law which would end in impeaching these criminals, Congress instead has secret meetings with their Fuehrer and decide the solution is to make warrantless searches legal!

From the NYT:

The plan by Senate Republicans to step up oversight of the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance program would also give legislative sanction for the first time to long-term eavesdropping on Americans without a court warrant, legal experts said on Wednesday.

Civil liberties advocates called the proposed oversight inadequate and the licensing of eavesdropping without warrants unnecessary and unwise. But the Republican senators who drafted the proposal said it represented a hard-wrung compromise with the White House, which strongly opposed any Congressional interference in the eavesdropping program.
What is this "hard wrought" business? Bush threatened to veto any laws that would preserve the Constitution? Huh?

Bush spies on me and he spies on you, He spies on whoever he wants and he has a very long "enemies list" which he uses as the basis of this spying. America is rapidly becoming a police state, already we see our dictator using his vast powers handed to him by the Republicans who steal elections, he won't let harmless people into America who happen to protest his abuse of American and international laws. He sells America down the river to foreign powers like Dubai or Japan. He opens our ports and our cities to invasion and attacks but spends tremendous amount of time and effort tracking environmentalists and political dissidents.

He broke the law when he abused his powers and illegally spied on American citizens who were not breaking any laws. He should be arrested for this. At least impeached. Instead, he throws tempertantrums at the GOP Congressional leaders who cringe and beg for more. This collection of white males seem to be the biggest bunch of scary-cats on earth. Trembling like little children spooked by the itsy-bitsy spider, they squeal and run.
On Tuesday, Mr. Rockefeller said he believed that the committee's Republicans were "under the control" of the White House. Mr. Roberts said on Wednesday that he resented being portrayed as what he called a "lap dog of the administration."
Um, they are more than lap dogs, they are the barking dogs of the neo-nazi police state.

They want endless police state protections for themselves and then they turn around and pop on that stupid cowboy Brokeback hat and goose each other, stepping all over the Constitution, yawping as if they are strong and hale instead of helpless little cowardly twits.

If they are so chicken little scared of terrorists why are they so flaccid and flummoxed by the Dubai port deal? I don't get it. They want to lock the front door of America and then hand the keys to the Muslim dictators ruling the Middle East? Huh?
The administration would be required to provide "full access" to information about the eavesdropping, including "operational details," to the new Senate and House subcommittees, the summary said. Each subcommittee would consist of four Republicans and three Democrats from the Intelligence Committees.

Mr. DeWine, a principal author of the proposal, said it would give "very specific pinpoint oversight."

"We will be seeing specific cases coming back and seeing why they are not going into the FISA court," he said.
There is ZERO reason for all this. The "oversight" committee will be mostly Republicans and they will simply rubber stamp the dictator's choices and we will never know what the hell is going on since this stupid "oversight" committee will operate like the previous one: no one is allowed to talk about the spying! Gah. Worse, Bush can spy for 45 days before even telling the committee! Talk about rubbish. This rubber stamp proposal is unconstitutional. Congress cannot simply decide to write off much of the Constitution! Of course, the courts are now packed with neo-nazis who are desperate to cement the police state into place. They assure us, this is to protect America. Well, I know how to protect America!

Arrest them all. They are traitors. Period.

Russia Hosts G8 Meeting--America And Russia In Conflict


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

G8 is meeting in Russia. Our relations with Russia worsen by the hour thanks to American imperialist objectives. Russia is an energy exporting country. This gives them increasing power quite literally. America wants war with Iran. WWIII, anyone?

From the Washington Post:
The Russian president, Boris Yeltsin, was allowed first to attend meetings and then to join, on the muddled grounds that making him a member, despite his country's lack of qualifications, would magically turn Russia into one of the world's largest democracies, too. It did not.

But now, having acquired ludicrous levels of significance and symbolism, the institution faces a genuine crisis. In July, the organization is going to meet for the first time under Russian leadership, in Russian President Vladimir Putin's hometown of St. Petersburg. And for the first time, a G-8 summit could produce, along with the bland communique, a political backlash harmful to all.

For by going to St. Petersburg, President Bush, Prime Minister Tony Blair, President Jacques Chirac, and the leaders of Italy, Germany, Canada and Japan will in effect place their stamp of approval on the removal of political rights, the harassment of independent groups, the renationalization of energy and the censorship of media that Putin has imposed on his country since he took over from Yeltsin six years ago. They will also give their blessing to Putin's use of gas pipelines to threaten Ukraine, and to his ambiguous role in Iranian nuclear and Middle East peace negotiations. And after Bush goes home, the denizens of the Kremlin -- along with Venezuelans, Iranians, Arab leaders and others around the world -- will sit back, laugh and agree that the leaders of the so-called West merely pay lip service to the ideals of freedom and democracy; they don't really believe in them. If you have enough oil, they'll let you into their clubs anyway. The long-term result: The American president's ability to speak credibly about democracy and political freedom will be irreparably damaged.
My god, the Washington Post is trying their mightiest to make me laugh to death. Teach Elaine a lesson!

Well, I am made of sterner stuff and so are readers of this blog. Naaaay.

For the world's foremost police state that lets in hordes of illegal aliens while locking out Irish Parlimentarians or authors of books or film makers, poets, spouses of dead labor leaders, everyone and anyone who might irritate the ruling elite here, yaps about freedom in Russia?

The country that self censors the press and TV by allowing powerful monopolies run by the elite take over all forms of the media leaving only the internet as the last bastion of real First Amendment rights, one that they are most anxious to shut down, we are the beacon of freedom? Huh? Pass that by us bloggers again, dudes.

With bloggers now being openly spied upon by the government, the government invading homes to see if we have pictures of Bush being strung up by his skinny neck, is the beacon of civil rights, a person's home is their castle?

I don't have these pictures at home though I do have one with Bush as the Fool with the Crown waving a Sword, attacking the court system. Does that count as subversive?

America's rulers have to heave very hard to make it look as if this country isn't a police state even as they impose this rule on us. Look at England! They are being herded into carrying ID cards that have EYE SCANS! A man was fined for giving the finger to hidden police cameras. You see, you are supposed to be happy they are spying on everyone. A woman sued them for using the cameras to spy on her and her evidence was the cameras trained on the camera watchers, filming them making obscene comments about the lady in question while spying on her.

I remember an ancient British tale of the Peeping Tom and the naked Queen riding through London's streets back in the Dark Ages, a time when peeping Toms spying on everyone through eaves dropping, another quaint English tale, eaves droppers hung out next to windows, they were called all sorts of unpleasant names. Sneaks, stoolies, ever hear of "Keep yer nose out of my affairs"?

Sneaky sneaks are meeting sneakily in Russia so they can plot how to spy on us and drive us all into slavery. And these evil people dare to yap about Russia? What is Putin's crime, anyway? Oh, he is taking over the oil and charging a lot of money for it and using it to improve social services in Russia.

OH!!!! Now I see!!!! Bad Putin, naughty, naughty. In Europe, they are putting historians in prison for "denying the Holocaust" even as they assist the Jews in creating a new Holocaust in the Middle East and we are not allowed to make cartoons showing the Jews in Israel as neo-nazis even as Horowitz rummages around America, trying to intimidate professors who dare speak anything drastically diffent from the neo-Zionist's neo-con crap. Teachers are harrassed for talking about Gandhi in school, mentioning the possibility of peaceful disengagement, reprimanded for mentioning the astonishing closeness of Bush to Hitler's ideology. Not to mention, his family's personal friendships with the same.

I was too sick yesterday to post about this which is OK since it is even more relevant today. From Reuters
The top diplomats from Russia and the United States exposed their countries' widening rift on Tuesday, publicly airing disagreements over how to curb Iran's nuclear programs and other issues, such as trade and democracy.

At a news conference, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov departed from their past practice of keeping their differences behind closed doors and exchanged complaints about the other's policies.

After Rice said she had expressed U.S. worries about Russia's democracy, Lavrov retorted that Moscow too had concerns about the United States and complained that Washington was the sole hold-out blocking its entry to the World Trade Organization.
The more unpopular our dictator is at home, the more he and his minons yap about democracy abroad. I see a pattern here. Russia, like China, is openly hostile at this pathetic attempt at propaganda from people who have shredded our Constitution, openly used a vote tally on Diebold machines, 18181, to shove in our faces the truth that our voting systems are fake machines set to keep them in power with eternal 50.1% vote tally victories so even when the polls show 60% of Americans loathe the GOP, they can claim one last minute victory after another until someone pulls their plugs.

This is ridiculous. International vote monitoring organizations uniformly call the American electoral system a complete failure and impossible to monitor due to systems set up to defeat examination for fairness.

Russia rightfully warned us to keep out of their territory, they have a "sphere of influence" and we plopped military bases deep within this sphere while crowing that we were winning the Cold War at last. Meanwhile, we verbally attack China who is very upset for the same reason, our penchant for setting up military bases deep within their sphere of influence, too. From the Washington Post:
Reports from Taiwan said Chen's government had reassured U.S. officials by changing the language of the announcement. Originally, Chen planned to say he was "abolishing" the council, they said, but shifted to a statement that it had "ceased to function."

This amounted to little more than official recognition of reality, the reports said. The council, founded in 1990 by the then-governing Nationalist Party, has been inoperative since Chen came to power on an ardently pro-independence platform.

Chinese officials and analysts have warned that Chen could read the mild U.S. response as a green light for further steps emphasizing his desire to establish formal independence. In particular, Chinese officials have expressed fear Chen might try next to revise the constitution to underline its separation from China, or start calling the island Taiwan in official documents.

"We will have to remain highly vigilant for any complication in the situation," Li said, "and we are prepared to deal with any development."
Li is the person in charge of Chinese foreign affairs and his IQ dwarfs Condi's IQ. He knows the game we are playing and he knows the stakes and he is gently warning us that we are in danger of being fried. He knows the tools to be used are economic as well as diplomatic. He courts Putin daily. He never lectures Russia in public. He doesn't even lecture America, not that our rulers would heed any warnings.

Some people think it is all one big joke, this Chinese fixation with Taiwan. Geopolitical reasons for China doing this are very, very, TERRIBLY strong. China has many good reasons to insure Taiwan be an ally and not an enemy. It would be the height of irresponsility for Chinese leaders to ignore this. Taiwan is a knife at China's throat.

It would be like India ignoring Pakistan. They can't.

And are we winning hearts and minds in Russia or China, for that matter? From Moscow News:
Most Russians are not going to support any side in an armed conflict between the United States and Iran. 17 percent of the respondents to the poll held by Levada Center company called the United States a definite threat to the world and 40 percent said it was likely so. 9 percent said Iran was the threat, 33 said it was likely so.

Speaking on Russia’s role in a possible conflict, 35 percent said they wanted Russia to become a mediator, 27 expressed the point it was better not to intervene, 18 percent said it was preferable to maneuver between the sides acting in its own interest. Only 6 percent proposed to support Iran, and 3 percent to support the United States.
Looks like Putin, unlike Bush or Blair, is actually reflecting the Will of the People! They don't want war, they want neutrality but lean towards Iran's side and are definitely against America. I am not a bit surprised, reading how deftly Putin has been playing this game lately, it is interesting. He even invited Hamas over for tea while America's Zionist State Department screamed itself hoarse.

Meanwhile, American neo cons flack the right wing CIA Pahlavi family. From Times of London:
“President (Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad was elected on the basis of a ‘chicken in every pot’ and there’s no sign that he is living up to that,” said a senior State Department official. “The patience of people who supported him is going to run out.”

Iranian exiles are using the showdown with Tehran over nuclear weapons to build unity among notoriously fractured opposition groups. Reza Pahlavi, the son of the late Shah of Iran, said in Washington last week that democratic regime change was a “race against time”.

“Forget about endlessly negotiating with the mullahs,” he said. “They will only buy the regime more time and a military strike would be a gift to the clerics. Everybody knows you cannot come away from the precipice without democracy.”
There was no "democracy" in Iran under the Shah. Now his stupid, lazy son wants us to pay in blood and money to put his ass back on the throne. Right? We are fighting WWIII for the Sheiks and Shahs and Pashaws of the world. Right.

Arrest them all.

Cindy Sheehan Arrested At the UN Even As Our Hitler Tries To Stampede The UN Into Attacking Iran


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Cindy Sheehan tried to deliver thousands of signatures to the UN but they locked the doors claiming the press (!) couldn't come in. She refused to leave and was arrested. Meanwhile, the US delegation clashed swords and shields and screamed dementedly that Israel...er, the world demands Iran disarm so we can invade them. We also claimed Iran is causing the nonexistant civil war in Iraq, not us, nope. Arrest Bolton. Arrest Bush.

From Reuters:
About 20 protesters went to the U.S. Mission to the United Nations to deliver a petition with 60,000 signatures seeking an end to the war.

The protesters said they had been told they could send a delegation into the building to present their petition, but that no one showed up to receive them.

A Reuters photographer said security guards inside the building had held the doors to prevent them from entering.

But Richard Grenell, the spokesman for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, said the protesters had been invited in but had refused to do so because media representatives were not allowed to accompany them.
Our Martin Luther King, our Gandhi. She just keeps on fighting. Hail her example! This is what happens, if they try to belittle or ignore you, this is how you keep on going, again and again, never giving up, never giving ground.

Fighting back.

Our Hitler never gives up, either, as he drives the USA into yet another ruinous war. Remember, Hitler didn't let anything stop him until he hit Stalingrad. From Associated Press:
Unless Iran executes a dramatic about-face and suspends all its nuclear activities, the U.N. Security Council will intervene "quite actively," a senior State Department official said Monday.

The message to Iran is that it has "crossed the international red line" and engaged in unacceptable enrichment activity "and there must be a U.N. Security Council process to deal with that," Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns said.

Burns did not say what the United States would ask the Security Council to do. While the Bush administration takes a stern line toward Tehran it might not be able to persuade other nations to impose economic or other penalties on Iran.
You can bet our trigger happy Cheney and Bush just can't control the urge to blindly pull that trigger. They can't help it.

Meanwhile, China grows very pissed off. Being blank faced inscrutables, they are hiding their true feelings but every day, their official news sites growl about Taiwan and they are very angry. Very. They are thinking it is time to twist the fatted goose's neck. There is no way anything we sponsor will sail through the Security Council but that doesn't stop our Bush! He illegally invaded Iraq without UN permission!

But that was with China's blessings which are now curses. Being insane as well as stupid, Bush can't see this little change. The comely princess is now a raging dragon.

Meanwhile, Iraq continues to implode, explode and just plain fall apart. From the Washington Post:
A senior Iraqi general who commanded the Iraqi Army division in Baghdad was gunned down by insurgents today, the U.S. military said.

Maj. Gen. Mubdar Hatim Hazya al-Dulaimi was killed when snipers fired at his convoy from houses alongside a highway at 4:35 p.m. Baghdad time, according to a statement released by the U.S. military command in Baghdad. Mubdar, a Sunni Muslim, had been visiting his soldiers in Kadhimiya, in northwestern Baghdad, and was killed the city's western Adl neighborhood, according to an Interior Ministry official quoted by the Associated Press.

The general was one of the highest-ranking Iraqi military officers killed in the violence that has engulfed Iraq since U.S. troops toppled Saddam Hussein's government nearly three years ago. Under Mubdar's leadership, his division had gradually been assuming control of parts of Baghdad from U.S. forces. The transfer of authority to Iraqi units is regarded by U.S. military commanders as a key prerequisite to a reduction in U.S. troop levels in Iraq.

The death came on a day in which car bombings and other attacks killed more than 20 people and injured 50 others, shattering a relative lull in violence over the weekend that followed a partial curfew in the capital for Friday prayers.
Why can't we send all our Pentagon brass there? Let them drink the blood they caused. Let them pay the ultimate price. And send that lazybones coward, Negroponte as well as Bush and Cheney. Don't let Cheney have a gun.

Gads, this reminds me the Pentagon Brass who lied about the famous football star are not going to punish the poor saps who shot him accidentally. Why can't we put Cheney in prison?

Meanwhile, Iran is dropping several bombs on America, namely, oil cut offs. From Jang.com:
Iran will not freeze sensitive nuclear research work even if it is hauled before the UN Security Council, the Islamic republic’s top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, said on Sunday.

Speaking on the eve of a meeting of the UN nuclear watchdog that could prompt Security Council action, he asserted Iran was not intending to use oil as a weapon in the dispute or quit the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), but he warned this could change if the crisis worsened.

"We have no interest in using oil as a weapon because we respect the psychological security of the international community," Larijani told a press conference, repeating Iran’s position that it would not initiate such a move.

"But naturally if they change the situation that will automatically be affected too," he warned. "Research and development is in our national interest and Iran will not go back on that," he maintained.
This is all so simple. Just like we gave away the store and all our jobs to India this week, all China needs is Taiwan. We give them that, we get Iran. So elegantly simple.

I think the Taiwanese should prepare themselves for this.

Or we get WWIII. Gads.

Bush, Lawbreaker Who Outed CIA Agent, Goes After Leakers Who Whistleblow


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Career criminal, Bush, frantically seeks to stop tiny leaks from patriots concerned about his wholesale violation of Federal laws concerning spying on Americans illegally as well as outing CIA undercover agents so he could intimidate whistleblowers. Arrest Bush.

From Capitol Hill Blue:
In recent weeks, the FBI has issued hundreds of "National Security Letters," directing employers, banks, credit card companies, libraries and other entities to turn over records on reporters. Under the USA Patriot Act, those who must turn over the records are also prohibited from revealing they have done so to the subject of the federal probes.

"The significance of this cannot be overstated," says prominent New York litigator Glenn Greenwald. "In essence, while the President sits in the White House undisturbed after proudly announcing that he has been breaking the law and will continue to do so, his slavish political appointees at the Justice Department are using the mammoth law enforcement powers of the federal government to find and criminally prosecute those who brought this illegal conduct to light.
Indeed, read this entire link! Chilling. It seems, the Feds are contacting the owners of various media, seeking to find out who leaked the Justice (sic) department's information concerning the totally illegal spying on peace groups and writers (INCLUDING ME!).

Now that the whore half of the media has confused most Americans about who was being spied upon, the truth is now crawling out from under Nixonian rocks. Namely, many innocent Americans doing their civic duty according to the first 5 Amendments in "that scrap of paper" as Bush haughtily called our Constitution!

Well, here is one example of many: From the Christian Science Monitor:
Of all the lawsuits seeking to halt the National Security Agency's program to eavesdrop on certain Americans' electronic communications, a new one filed last week in Oregon may provide the federal courts with the most detailed glimpse yet into the clandestine counterterrorism effort.

The biggest challenge for such cases - which have also been filed in New York, Michigan, and California - is that plaintiffs don't have access to records of highly classified government surveillance activities and therefore can't be sure they were personally subjected to covert phone- tapping or e-mail reading by the US government.

The Oregon suit may manage to leap over that imposing legal hurdle. Lawyers and their clients apparently have seen phone logs and other top-secret records inadvertently provided, and then hastily recovered, by government officials.
More and more very angry people are demanding the courts do their duty and go after the obvious criminals here: the entire Justice Department and Bush! Arrest them all!

They are traitors to the Constitution.

The owner of Capital Hill Blues is being investigated. He can't even reveal the exact letter sent to him to hand over all his personal life information, every fucking GODDAM thing is "top secret" so he isn't even supposed to inform himself that he is under investigation!

What is this, the Soviet Union? CHINA? Hells bells, we see our dictator who just handed over to India nuclear technology threatening yet again, louder, that he intends to bomb Iran over this same issue? What?

Arrest this war criminal! Gads, what will it take? A million Hiroshimas???

This is striking closer and closer to home. I am a CIA black sheep. A bad girl who spills the beans and who knows the games. Just like my stuff about China. Laugh at my words but just remember, I know what few people know! Thanks to who I am.

And Bush hates me, personally. I am not popular nor followed by millions of readers right now, no one likes my stuff, it seems but my track record so far on this blog is 100% bull's eyes! I was once a skilled longbow shooter. I could hit bull's eyes from 100 yrds without a sight on the bow! I aim and hit.

From MSNBC News:
Iran faces “tangible and painful consequences” if it continues its nuclear activities and the United States will use “all tools at our disposal” to stop this threat, a senior U.S. official said Sunday, ahead of a crucial international meeting on Iran.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, speaking at a convention of Jewish-Americans, said it is too soon for the U.N. Security Council to impose sanctions on Iran but other countries are talking about doing so and Washington is “beefing up defensive measures to cope with the Iranian nuclear threat.”
Be afraid. Be very afraid. The cold, black wind of the End of Times is blowing down our necks.

And I am telling everyone, Bush is a career criminal. He worships Geronimo's skull and prays for power even as his brain is dying and it is dying rapidly, he has no idea that the bargain he struck during that summer thunderstorm in 1999 has a price. This man is the feared Fool with the Crown carrying the Sword burning the Book of Knowledge. The harbinger of the Apocalypse.

Sigh. We have to get him away from those nukes.

CENTCOM Just Emailed Me! And The Young Man Was So Nice, Too!


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

I just got a really sweet email from idle CENTCOM employees who have nothing better to do than to sit around, emailling bloggers so they can shoehorn more propaganda online. Maybe I could subvert them but I would far rather have the money wasted doing this, spent on the Coast Guard rescue operations!

From: gehlengp@centcom.mil
Subject: CENTCOM
Date: March 3, 2006 2:53:38 PM EST
To: emeinel@taconic.net

Greetings Elaine,

My name is SGT Gehlen from the U.S. Central Command public affairs office. I found your site on “Technorati” and I see that you are interested in politics and events in the CENTCOM area of responsibility. I wanted to invite you to visit our website at:

CENTCOM.mil

On our site we provide news, casualty reports, images video and more concerning events in the CENTCOM AOR. We welcome you to use any of the information you find on our site. I would also like to invite you to place a link to our site on you page if that is something you think your readers would be interested in. Thank you for your time.

I certainly am easier to find than bin Laden. Just use a search engine. My darling emailer didn't explain to me who the mysterious blogger was who wrote several articles about children being blown up. This still mystifies me. If they are going to talk about me, they should have asked my opinion before publishing or at least given the url of the mystery site they cited in their own article.

Like all bloggers, I am eager to have an audience even if that audience is hostile. He also didn't explain the blogger war games that irritated the hell out of me the other day.
The last several days has been blogger hell at Blogspot.com. This is why my stories haven't been posted in a timely fashion. Well, now I learn that this week, the Pentagon has been doing war games...AGAINST BLOGGERS! We are, I am assuming, the Enemy. Pen is mightier than the sword and all that.

From Prison Planet:
Homeland Security completed its “Cyber Storm” wargame to test how our government “would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.”


NOAA and NASA has had its troop of goofy spies harrassing me, too. I do hope they enjoy my cartoons. I often wonder if this is subverting their minds? Do they toss and turn at night, wondering about the pictures showing seas of red ink? The funny pictures of Dear Leader and Dear Big Time Leader? Is this undermining their morale?

Will Homeland Security visit me, next? And the real question is, can they do this during mud season when the long road up my mountain turns to mush? All the military vehicles that can negotiate the ruts on this road are in Iraq so I guess I can stick my tongue at at all of them, eh?

Except they can nail me here, online. And this ticks me off.

Go find bin Laden. Better still, arrest Bush. Thank you.
