Cindy Was Arrested For Tee Shirt With "2245" On It!


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Apparently, Cindy Sheehan had a tee shirt on with the stark numbers, "2245" on it, the number of dead soldiers in the military including her own son. This was why she was arrested! Is this America or is it China?

The Skull and Bones magic number is 322. This is for the death of democracy. And nothing infuriates Bush more than magic numbers which is why bin Laden uses them all the time, I am guessing.

Cindy didn't say anything, she just silently revealed the number of the dead to the soul dead gathered below her balcony, the men and women who voted to send her son to die in a futile war, all for our "addiction to oil." The ghosts of the dead can't haunt them but the living mothers can and this is why she was hustled out so swiftly.

The media had to lie about her, of course. They lied about where her son died, for example. They lied about what she "did." They pretended she tried to unflurl a banner. They demonized her, coughing up whatever fake hairballs that roll around in their stomachs. They should teach the Chinese how to lie about protestors. They could show them how to kill off even the most insignificant protests.

And the Democrats could show how to be harmless wienies. Woof.

Go, Cindy! Keep up the pressure. And do talk about socialist things, I love you the most for that. You are opening so many doors, keep it up! All the verboten stuff our flat earth flat worm politicians and media want banished. Kisses to you, sister.

El Infantate Arbusto Makes Big Speech And Cindy Sheehan is Arrested


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The big baby boy made a big speech today. He told us we are addicted to oil. I suppose, as the pusher/enforcer of the oil drug kingpins, he should now be arrested along with the other guys taking oil kingpin money, no? War against Oil Addiction! Cindy Sheehan is arrested for being a Gold Star Mother. AWOL Bush hates her guts.

From CNN:
Peace activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Tuesday in the House chamber after she unfurled an anti-war banner before President Bush's State of the Union address.
Naughty, naughty. Everyone was supposed to play Jack in the Box today. The obese Senatorial Behemoths need the exercise. Up, down, up, down. Jumping jack flashes or maybe flushes.

Bet they were all wheezing and heaving by the end of Stutter-in-chief's speechifying.

Bush's speech was perfectly pitched for the flat earth/let them eat dirt corporate corpus. From the New York Times:
"In a complex and challenging time, the road of isolationism and protectionism may seem broad and inviting, yet it ends in danger and decline," Mr. Bush told members of the House and Senate, other high officials and a television audience of millions watching his fifth State of the Union address. "The only way to protect our people, the only way to secure the peace, the only way to control our destiny is by our leadership – so the United States of America will continue to lead."
India and China are gaining jobs at a mad rate and we are losing jobs. Well, since we have lower and lower pay, have negative savings, we just have to give these countries our jobs in exchange for loans! Leadership!

Why aren't all nations running way in the red outside of Italy?

The world's stupidest leader harps on education again, right after cutting student aid.
Mr. Bush, who has said he wants to be remembered as the "education president," proposed a program to train 70,000 high school teachers to lead advanced-placement courses in math and science and bring 30,000 math and science professionals to teach in the classrooms. The education proposals stood out in a speech otherwise marked by reiteration of the goals and ideas that Mr. Bush has embraced throughout his presidency.
Ho-kay. Say you are a math or science professional. So after getting a PhD or Masters degree you go off and work in some highschool for what? $60,000 a year, tops, after 20 years?

How about asking doctors to volunteer to be school nurses.

Here is another funny boner.
Mr. Bush said the United States' goal should be to replace more than 75 percent of its oil imports from the Middle East by 2025. The United States gets less than 20 percent of the oil it consumes from the region, and altogether, about 60 percent of the oil Americans consume comes from abroad.
Um, take out your calculators, everyone! Um, 75% of 20% is...miniscule. Why that odd figure? And expressed so ineptly? And why not be slightly ambitious and say, call to cut 100% of the 20%? And while we are at it, 100% of the 60% we import? Impossible?

Well, if we sign the Kyoto Accords and then get serious about public transportation and tax gas guzzlers at a much higher rate than gas miser cars, etc. In other words, act like we are Europeans or Japanese...yeah, right.

Well, when we run out of credit, when the dollar ceases to be petrodollars, we will do all this minus the public transportation and other things since Bush is killing Amtrak and other transportation systems.

Gads, this fool is killing America. And his stupid plan to use corn for fuel is insane since you need way too much fuel to turn it into fuel. It isn't cost or energy effective.

But then, he and his goons didn't mention the yawning deficits. This is what is going to shape everything in the future, more and more. As all our options shut down, one by one.

They arrested the wrong person tonight. Arrest Bush.

Putin Announces New Nuclear Missile System That Can Evade Star Wars Defences


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

In 1980, I once debated William Safire in NYC about Star Wars. He said it would make the American Empire invulnerable and I said it would seal our fates for anyone can circumvent it easily and fairly cheaply and it would give us a false sense of pride which would cause us to get into trouble all over the world. Guess I was right, wasn't I?

From the NYT:
President Vladimir Putin boasted Tuesday that Russia has new missiles capable of penetrating any missile defense system and said he had briefed the French president on their capabilities.

''Russia has tested missile systems that no one in the world has,'' Putin said. ''These missile systems don't represent a response to a missile defense system, but it doesn't matter to them whether that exists or not. They are hypersonic and capable of changing their flight path.''
Hahaha. Told you so! Of course, any system we set up will have counter systems set up. This is the usual arms race we know so well. With nuclear arms there are not too many choices. One either keeps a happy stalemate or one launches WWIII and hopes the planet has some territory left at the end where something more advanced than cockroaches can exist.

Russia was forced to counter us because Bush I and Bush II both stated they want an "impenetrable barrier" to any counter strikes so they can go around, invading whatever countries they wish. Since we decided to park hostile bases all around Russia's perimeter, they were forced into extending their hostile weapons systems. Our missile defence is pathetic. It can't shoot down anything unless it is very obvious, has a nice, obvious trajectory and we are forewarned where it will be coming in.

Of course, bombs can be packaged in so many different ways, ridiculously easily, and since our country isn't North Korea but rather, the top destination of 80% of all packages and boxes, we are basically doomed if we want to stop a nasty package just like we couldn't stop the anthrax killer, aka, He Who Is Even More Ignored Than Bin Laden.

The American space program is collapsing. Thanks to the useless Star Wars money grinding machine, we have nearly nothing left for NASA and the news gets grimmer by the day. Space.com:
NASA plans to delay the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) nearly two years, to 2013, to cope with $1 billion in cost growth on the mission, a senior program official said.

Paul Geithner, JWST program executive at NASA Headquarters here, said the agency elected in September to cover the additional costs rather than scale back the mission’s science objectives. The delay, he said, will soften the cost spike’s impact on the lean budget years immediately ahead.
As we spend a fool's money on the futile wars for oil and Star Wars, we are going to have NASA waste $500 million extra for a fake waiting period so Congress can vote more money some time in the future? What???? HUH?

We might as well throw in the towelettes. We aren't even going to launch the thing, we are now begging Europe to do it. After all, the Russians are keeping the Space Lab going all by themselves, with a skeleton crew. I would far rather we were honest with ourselves and have an open debate about our space programs, our star wars programs and, heck, anything, actually.

Like the deficit.

Americans support the stupid wars only because they aren't footing any bills---yet. This drift down the path of destruction shouldn't be allowed by the leadership but our leaders are the Mad Hatter and the March Hare.

Back to the NYT article:
Russia opposed Washington's withdrawal in 2002 from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in order to deploy a national missile defense shield, saying the 30-year-old U.S.-Soviet pact was a key element of international security. Putin called the decision a mistake that would hurt global security but not threaten Russia.

The ABM treaty banned missile defense systems on the assumption that the fear of retaliation would prevent each nation from launching a first strike -- a strategy known as mutually assured destruction.

Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said Russia would commission new early warning radars to replace those located in the former Soviet republics. The new radars will ''provide an earlier warning on launches of all missiles, including intercontinental ballistic missiles as well as tactical and cruise missiles,'' Ivanov said, according to Russian news reports.
Russia has done tactical retreats multiple times in their history, the two most famous being the retreat from Napoleon until he overextended himself and the retreat from the Germans. Each time, the Russians regrouped and moved relentlessly forwards.

They are doing this again. After being stung by the tremendous shrinkage of their unwieldy empire, they are now reestablishing control over their neighbors using natural gas, oil, and missiles coupled with forming alliances and compacts that benefit Russia.

We were warned to not invade their sphere of influence but the American neo-cons couldn't resist this, being Troskyites. Now we are in a much more dangerous situation than before. I don't know if Russia will back Iran in a confrontation with the USA, it all depends on what China's plans are and they aren't telling anyone. I do know, America ruling the planet with an iron fist is NOT part of their future plans. Nor Russia's.

Israelis Shoot 9 Year Old Palestinian Girl In The Back Yesterday


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

As the USA and the Israelis deafen us with screams to boycott and defund the Palestinians, yet another cold blooded murder is committed by neo-Nazi Israeli troops who use their watch towers to snipe children to death for the fun of it. Time to defund Israel.

From the Guardian:
The nine-year-old girl's parents realised she was gone as they watched the election results on television. They do not know precisely what happened, but the Israeli army later said Aya was behaving in a suspicious manner reminiscent of a terrorist - she got too close to the border fence - and so a soldier fired several bullets into the child, hitting her in the neck and blowing open her stomach.
They could see perfectly well, this was a small girl. They have a long history of sniping at women and children for the fun of it. We never, ever, ever hear about this in American media which is about as honest as the Nazi Beobachter. We get heavily censored news here in America and this has twisted public opinion severely.

In Europe, the imperialists are desperately trying to whip up support of destroying the Palestinian people totally and utterly. The "Final Solution" is next, I suppose. Hamas has had a ceasefire with Israel for a year which has pretty much held. But there is no reciprocation in this firing. If unarmed children are being machinegunned in the back for no good reason, this isn't a ceasefire.

Every Israeli killed in this conflict gets loving attention in America, every Palestinian or pro-Palestinian Americans are defamed, libeled and mocked in America if they get any attention at all which is usually around zero.

My father, when interrogating Germans in the village of Dachau in 1945, asked them again and again, how could they not know what was going on in the extermination camp. They gave him blank looks.

We have to look. This is why crimes against humanity destroy our own humanity if we don't look. We have to see the truth and the truth is, the war for the Holy Land is turning people into demons and little children are being thrown into Moloch's fiery stomach!

And we don't care.
Aya was the second child killed by the Israeli army last week. Soldiers near Ramallah shot 13-year-old Munadel Abu Aaalia in the back as he walked along a road reserved for Jewish settlers with two friends. The army said the boys planned to throw rocks at Israeli cars, which the military defines as terrorism.
The two killings went unnoticed by the outside world amid the political drama, but they made their impact among Palestinians angered by demands from western leaders for Hamas to recognise Israel and renounce its armed struggle.
How could we not notice this? How could the guards who shot a young boy in the BACK know he was going to do anything? Are they mind readers?

And they didn't have even that excuse with Aya. They simply shot her for the hell of it. A nine year old girl is not very big nor very threatening nor has a history of being terrorist.

This is all so sad and so very insane. Wherever Anne Frank is, she is weeping.

Davos, Fake Filibustering And Ignoring Disasters


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Because no voters own any politicians, only lobbyists and rich people, everything we want is shoved aside and anything they want goes to front and center. This is typical of all empires and we are rotting the same way all empires rot. Stinky and messily. This is why Democrats were much happier, skiing at Davos and utterly at sea when forced, by leftist pressure, to put on a fake show of resistance in DC.

From the NYT:
The nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. for the Supreme Court cleared an all-important procedural hurdle in the Senate this afternoon as liberal Democrats failed to muster enough support to block a vote on his confirmation.
The mass media didn't give a hoot, this guy is 100% corporate America. Rich people didn't give a hoot. After all, one can buy anything including love if one is rich and under Bush and Congress and the Courts, the rich are tons richer so everyone in that classification are slap happy and raring to go.

They look aside at the serious dark clouds gathering over our empire and have carefull squirreled overseas a lot of money and a lot of business. So if the last jobs go over the wall, they don't care since they all, all of them, especially the right wingers, have third and fourth homes in places like Paris or London or they own islands here and there.

For example, how about this? From the NYT:
Kraft Foods Inc., the nation's largest food manufacturer, said Monday it would eliminate 8,000 more jobs, or about 8 percent of its work force, and close up to 20 production plants as it broadens an ongoing restructuring effort.

Kraft said the cuts would save an additional $700 million in annual costs, atop a targeted $450 million in savings it already had hoped to achieve through a restructuring that began in January 2004.
Are they losing money like the auto companies?

Hahaha. Nope. Profits are up and up! They are laying off 8,000 to increase the bonuses and lift the shareholders even more. Heck, if they could fire 20,000, they would be absolutely overjoyed. Already, in one day, their stock shot up in value. People with money to burn love to see workers burned! Whoopee.

From the NYT:
Exxon Mobil, the nation's largest energy company, today reported a 27 percent surge in profits for the fourth quarter as elevated fuel prices gave rise to the most lucrative year ever for an American company, with profits in 2005 reaching $36.13 billion and revenue $371 billion.

Exxon's profits are expected to generate new scrutiny of the company's operations in Washington, where legislators have recently expressed concern over Big Oil's good fortune as soaring oil and natural gas prices pressure consumers. Exxon said its profits climbed more than 40 percent last year, while its tax bill rose only 14 percent.
Hahahaha. March Hare, you are killing me! The two drunks at this Tea Party are going to go after the richest lobby in Washington? Incredible. Totally insane. The Mad Hatter thinks I am mad enough to fall for this malarky.

Well, I am mad. Spitting mad. Mad enough to say, "Enough."

Why were the Democrats so lax in fighting on the issue of Abramoff and changing the stupid laws they wrote that give K Street total control of our Congress? Eh? Hear the Dormouse singing in the tea kettle?

La-la-la.

The feeble changes proposed are all cosmetic. Do our media overlords yap about this? La-la-la sings the Dormouse. Nope. They get all this loot in the form of advertisements. No one in control of America wants to see what we see in Palestine: people voting their overlords out of office. Across the planet, whenever anyone kicks corrupt polititians to the curb that are serving our vast corporate octopus, we invade. Or boycott. Or both.

Flush with loot, the oil companies got their Energy Bill passed that gave them millions more and cut their taxes more and our country is going bankrupt more and look at this marvelous news: From Reuters:
"Primary care is on the verge of collapse," said the organization, a professional group which certifies internists, in a statement. "Very few young physicians are going into primary care and those already in practice are under such stress that they are looking for an exit strategy."

Dropping incomes coupled with difficulties in juggling patients, soaring bills and policies from insurers that encourage rushed office visits all mean that more primary care doctors are retiring than are graduating from medical school, the ACP said in its report.

The group has proposed a solution -- calling on federal policymakers to approve new ways of paying doctors that would put primary care doctors in charge of organizing a patient's care and giving patients more responsibility for monitoring their own health and scheduling regular visits.
Whoopee. Giving us more "responsibility for monitoring" ourselves, welcome to the "ownership society." We get to own our own bodies when they wear out and they get to own everything else, those lovely K Street Corporate Entities.

Can't wait.

And so it goes. Obviously, flush with power, getting away with bankrupting us while making themselves very rich, they will be so overloaded with loot that when the housing system collapses, and it will, they can pick up whatever they want, for a dime or a nickle, and then resell it for a 30% profit, over time. For they can afford to sit back and let us flounder for years and years and years.

Anyone studying the Great Depression should know this. The people with money were perfectly happy watching their overhead drop like a rock. Hiring people for pennies. I should know. My family had money during the Great Depression.

Department of Homeland Security Spends A Lot Of Time Surfing For Porn


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Even as documents now reveal how the DHS goofed off and didn't allow flat boat rescues after Hurricane Katrina, we learn their computer alert system has tracked over 65 million security alerts due to staff downloading porn.

From Spolid.com:

Homeland Security bureaucrats just look at pornography all day, a startling new government report suggests.

The terror bureaucracy’s internal computer network logged a staggering 65 million security alerts in just 90 days, according to the study (PDF) released today by Homeland Security Department inspector general Dick Skinner.
Amazing. Just amazing when connected to this news: From Associated Press:
Responding to a questionnaire posed by investigators, Interior Department Assistant Secretary P. Lynn Scarlett said her agency offered to supply FEMA with 300 dump trucks and other vehicles, 300 boats, 11 aircraft and 400 law enforcement officers to help search and rescue efforts.

"Although the department possesses significant resources that could have improved initial and ongoing response, many of these resources were not effectively incorporated into the federal response to Hurricane Katrina," Scarlett wrote in the response, dated Nov. 7.

Scarlett added: "Although we attempted to provide these assets through the process established by the NRP, we were unable to efficiently integrate and deploy those resources."
People were dying and DHS was worried about what make up to wear on TV, setting up photo ops for Bush and Cheney, spreading lies and blame. I will note, the Israeli Bush hired to run the joint is nearly never in the news, I wonder if he is even in the country since Hamas has taken over Palestine. Anyone know Chertoff's whereabouts? I don't.

And I look for his name in the news. He isn't there, hasn't been for months and months. Bin Laden issues another tape and dead silence from our ultra super secret Israeli.
At one point, Scarlett's letter said, FEMA asked U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services to help with search and rescue in New Orleans, St. Bernard Parish and St. Tammany Parish but that the rescuers "never received task assignments." The agency, a branch of the Interior Department, apparently went ahead anyway, according to the letter, which said that Fish and Wildlife helped rescue 4,500 people in the first week after Katrina.
We know we forced Bush to get Brownie to resign but I notice not one Zionist in DC demanded Chertoff be removed, too. He was around during that time, and in the news, even. He seemed just as disinterested and clueless as his boss, Bush and his underling, Brown. So why the silence about him?

Do you think our press that went insane over Clinton's blow job are going to go nuts over this story? Hahaha.

Silence.

This story really shows how urgent DHS takes their job. Namely, they goof off all day long. I noted earlier that they set up a kiddie website and it took them only almost one year to launch. I launch websites at a mad rate. It is laughably easy to do!

And cheap. DHS could hire me and I could do all sorts of things. Heck, the Feds should have me replace Greenspan. But then, I know too much.

Bankrupcy and graft, goofing off while Rome burns. America! God bless.

Condi Rice and Her Ilk Are Shocked That Hamas Is Popular


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Condi Rice, one of the dumbest Secretary of State ever, is shocked the Palestinian people hate Fatah. I will clue her in: years of surrender to the Zionists and Americans have left Fatah fatally weakened and corrupt. Threats to withdraw money that doesn't flow to the Palestinians is not going to impress them, see? And "leaders" like Abbas are QUISLINGS who aren't ever popular, are they, with any people suffering from subjegation.

From the New York Times:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice acknowledged Sunday that the United States had failed to understand the depth of hostility among Palestinians toward their longtime leaders. The hostility led to an election victory by the militant group Hamas that has reduced to tatters crucial assumptions underlying American policies and hopes in the Middle East.
Lucky duckies in the Middle East: they get real elections with paper ballots! So the people, unlike Americans, get to actually vote for something and since they have a Parliment, they have more than one party, to boot! Yay!

So of course, this ticks off our despotic rulers here in America. They all live in the same iron bubble and have little or no contact with any humans who don't own lots of oil wells or own lots of politicians. They never ever visit those who have grievences with us, look at the ABC guys who were blown up when they paraded about outside the Green Zone in our satrapy of Iraq! Blooie!

And we don't dare poke a toe into Palestine, any American politician will be ripped to shreds. So we hang out here, deep within our steel bubble, and yell at them. Love us or else! If they are good little peasants and accept the pennies we toss them, all which is one tenth what we lavish on Israel who is the one attacking them, why, we might throw them a crust or two, you know, for appearances sake.

The idea that they would rather suffer and proudly refuse the pennies shocks us. Why, no one will help them but us! We control all the Muslim lands from here to the other ends of the Earth! We own Mecca! Hahaha, eat dust, dirty Palestinians!

Well. I recall someone called "bin Laden" and he has clearly said, either the Muslims must turn on their corrupt American puppet leaders or they will burn forever in hell. For this war is over Mecca and Allah, not over oil or riches. Indeed, a severe life of doing deeds and handing out money is what is holy and right, not sitting in palaces, having sex with foreign prostitutes while drinking and eating like a pig. Which describes the Saudi Royals.

The refusal of the Palestinians to kneel before the American Empire is what the entire global Jihad is all about. When Arafat kissed our ring and we punched him in the nose, Israel and America was perfectly happy. We thought it was funny, look at them grovel! Hahaha.

Well, much of the Muslim world grovelled with them. And they resented this tremendously. 9/11 shocked many Muslims who wanted peace and they tried to reach out to us only we decided to kick them all in the face and smear them in the dust and laugh at them, arrogantly.

So now they are striking back. And this won't end with us punching them back. Our war with Iran has already been lost. We don't know it but the Chinese know it. The economic tsunami that awaits us if we attack them is going to destroy America. And I am not exaggerating. It will sink our empire. Utterly. Worse than the collapse of the Russian Soviet State.
"There is a lot of blame to go around," said Martin Indyk, a top Middle East negotiator in the Clinton administration, referring to Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, and his Fatah party. "But on the American side, the conceptual failure that contributed to disaster was the president's belief that democracy and elections solve everything."
Read this ruling class tool carefully. Elections are not about solving problems but allowing the people to have a say. Geeze. Now we know what the Palestinians think. Attacking them for feeling angry is insane. Preventing them from expressing their will is monsterous. This is what evil dictators do! And as far as they are concerned, this is what we are!

And Bush doesn't believe in 'elections' unless they can be rigged and it ticks the hell out of me to hear all these evil neo-cons yapping about democracy. Obviously, they hate democracy. Look at how angry they are about places that exercise it! Well, I want them all to go parading about Iraq without body armor, on foot, throughout the Middle East. With big signs on their backs.

I will happily film this.

ABC Anchor. Bob Woodruff, Blown Up In Iraq


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Eisner-owned ABC has been a rah-rah warmongering news service. Because the news coming in off the internet is so dire, they decided to rah-rah it up so Americans will spend what little money we have left, fighting there. My husband was watching this propaganda yesterday and I walked in and said, "Well, he better stay in the Green Zone or he will be blown up." And so he was.

From CNN:
ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff and his cameraman were in stable condition Sunday after both were seriously wounded by a roadside bomb north of Baghdad, ABC officials said.

"We take this as good news, but the next few days will be critical. The [U.S.] military plans to evacuate them to their medical facilities in Landstuhl [Germany], probably overnight tonight," a ABC statement said.

Woodruff, 44, and 46-year-old cameraman Doug Vogt were in an Iraqi military vehicle near Taji, about about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Baghdad, at the time of the explosion, ABC said.
First, I saw the earliest reports from this guy. All goody gum drops, aren't we wonderful, the Iraqis really love us, they want us there, etc, etc. To prove this, the foolish man, victim of his own propaganda (the Nazis weren't this dumb!) decided to prove his point by going on patrol with the new improved Vichy Troops 2.0 edition.

They get crummier equipment, American leftovers. Many have complained about these moving coffins but it is never on ABC, of course, where the sun always shines and Americans are red, white and blue heroes! Since the opposition watches TV and has access to the internet, they knew this rash American was going to play Russian roulette with them.

They not only blew him up, they shot at him, too, it was a full ambush.

Saddam, growing bolder every day, had tremendous fun at his fake trial. From AP:
Iraq - Saddam Hussein's trial turned chaotic shortly after resuming Sunday, with one defendant dragged out of court and the defense team walking out in protest. The former Iraqi leader was then escorted from the room minutes after shouting "down with America!"
He also cried, "Death to America!" Isn't this fun? His bluster is backed by the knowledge that it is only time before he is sprung from prison and will be carried in triumph through the streets.

Meanwhile, American sabre rattling is returned in spades, everyone feeling very feisty now. From Channel 7 News:
Iran says it will launch medium-range missiles if attacked, and accused Britain and the United States of arming rebels in its south, as international pressure on Tehran over its nuclear plans grow.

"If we come under a military attack, we will respond with our very effective missile defence," Yahya Rahim Safavi, commander in chief of the Revolutionary Guard, told state television.
Won't it be fun when the Gwahair oil fields blow up? Not to mention, we can't pass through the straits there without all sorts of chaos. Great for moving huge, slow, wallowing oil ships! Just the fact that ship owners will be shy about sailing there will be enough to cause oil prices to go up and up.

Since we are a corrupt, old empire, we are doing exactly those things Rome did. In this case, hiring barbarians to fight for us as well as paying off barbarians who annoy us. From the Washington Post:
Congress has granted unusual authority for the Pentagon to spend as much as $200 million of its own budget to aid foreign militaries, a break with the traditional practice of channeling foreign military assistance through the State Department.

The move, included in a little-noticed provision of the 2006 National Defense Authorization Act passed last month, marks a legislative victory for Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, who pushed hard for the new powers to deal with emergency situations.
You know, Bush is cutting the National Guard, the National Reserves, everything, they are closing bases all over America and paying foreigners to run militaries from Israel to all the "stan" states and all of Eastern Europe, don't we look like the Soviet Union?

Except we don't have Cuba, we gave them to the Chinese, naturally.

This leads us to our concentration camp in Cuba. From Truthout. org:
Despite force feeding by the American military, several hunger strikers at Guantánamo Bay may be close to death, according to lawyers acting for the detainees.

The condition of two emaciated Yemeni hunger strikers who have been refusing solid food since August is causing particular concern. There are also fears for the life of a hospitalised Saudi prisoner.

The wife of a British resident and hunger striker, Shaker Aamer, visited the Commons last week to appeal to MPs for help. Aamer's wife, 31, who lives in London with her four children and has asked for her name to be withheld, said: "This is the time to do something. My husband is not going to last."

Aamer has been on hunger strike since November 2. Although he has lost weight, he is stronger than some other prisoners taking part in the protest at their detention without trial.
No trials, no Constitution, no Geneva Conventions, nothing. Nacht und Nebel is a Nazi concept: you disappear. When the families and lawyers of these prisoners try to see them, they are rebuffed. Forget the "we let the Red Cross visit Dachau" garbage. When snoopy people come, they lock the "Arbeit Macht Nicht Frei" gates and cock the guns.

We then tell Cuba, we are a free nation under laws that prevent us from abusing prisoners.

And then there is the horrible news that, totally against the Geneva Conventions, we seized women and children and threatened them with torture and held them illegally in small cells, demanding their husbands and fathers surrender. Straight out of the Nazi playbook. Little news about this in America, little fury. Slowly, we turn ourselves into the monster we fear. And in the process, are getting blown up.

Speaking of which, the Taliban are blowing up girl's schools all over Afghanistan, another disaster area. And Pakistan is edging away from us in all this, they are really, really angry at us. So, time for more robots?

Blewie.

57% of Americans Polled Want To Bomb Iran And Start A Global War


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Latest polls show 57% of America wants Bush to bomb Iran. We think we can bomb anyone and everyone. And there will be no blowback, either. This is how world wars begin.

From Financial Times News:
The American public’s position on Iran appears to have hardened over the last year, a period marked by an increasing international focus on Iran’s nuclear program. When a similar question was asked in a Times poll last January, 50% favored military action against Iran.

Regarding Iraq, the latest poll shows that although most Americans remain disenchanted with the war, opinions have stabilized, at least for now. The percentage saying they believe the situation in Iraq was not worth going to war over dipped slightly, to 53%, compared with 56% in a survey a year earlier.

When asked who was winning the war in Iraq, 33% said the United States, 7% said the insurgents, and 55% said neither side was winning.

Americans remain divided over how long U.S. forces should stay in Iraq: 40% believe the United States should remain in Iraq for “as long as it takes,” 36% want U.S. troops withdrawn within a year, and 14% support immediate withdrawal.

Respondents were also divided, largely along party lines, over whether the Iraq war is really part of Washington’s war on terrorism; 51% say it is, 46% say it is not. President Bush has repeatedly cast Iraq as the central front in the war on terrorism. But many of his administration’s prewar claims about Iraq’s ties to Al Qaeda have turned out to have been overstated or based on unreliable intelligence sources.

The poll also found that 32% of Americans believed that terrorism around the world had increased because of the Iraq situation, 17% believed it had decreased, and 47% believed the problem was about the same.
Despite others whacking us on the nose when we get too violent, many Americans still respond to propaganda and end up wanting war, more war, endless war. They are told, this will make us millionaires, we will win, we are number one, God Bless America, Seig Heil!

Because nobody can bomb us here at home (except when they do it anyway) we feel we can mete out bombings to whoever we want, hahaha, our mighty empire can't be attacked (except when it is attacked) and by being very snoopy, very obnoxious, imitating Nazguls, we will shock and awe the world into obeying us and handing over all that oil or else.

Of course, bombing Iran won't bring a drop of oil here. The plan is to have Iran drop the Chinese oil contracts (oh, oh!) while simultaneously asking the Chinese to fund our war machine via loans they will extend to us! A great plan with a small flaw.

It is totally insane!

Since most Americans get undiluted propaganda, they don't know that the Chinese are our bankers because this information is kept carefully segregated. Bush won't talk about it. Nor anyone in the GOP. Nor any of the running dog lackies that exclusively control all dialogue on TV or the radio. Since the Democrats won't say a peep about this, either, this means, everyone can play dumb.

Following a dumb leader, playing dumb, is dumb. And dead as a skunk on a highway. I suppose, the Chinese are praying we bomb Teheran and cause world oil prices to shoot up past $100 a barrel and then they can innocently turn around and say, "Well, sorry, we have to use our $1 trillion in petrodollars to buy oil for ourselves. We hope you enjoy the bidding war. We certainly will." Maybe they will laugh to death, first.
Wtulich, a registered Democrat and retired manager for the New York City Housing Authority, said he supported taking a hard line with Iran despite the strain of the Iraq war on the U.S. military.

“It makes me scared,” he said, “but we may not have a choice.”
Why is he scared? What is so scary here? We lived under a gigantic nuclear sword for over 50 years and we are scared of a tiny oil nation having one nuke? Is the world's biggest nuclear power and greatest military power this measly? This is very annoying. How can we feel this way? Again, let's review 9/11.

On 9/11, Bush (and I) knew bin Laden wanted to attack the USA. We knew that Bush's popularity was tanking. I knew about the NYT/Washington Post/Wall Street Journal paying for the ballots from Florida to be counted properly. This was done to prove Bush won only I heard from sources within the NYT that GORE was going to be the winner of the recount and this would really tank Bush. The news about this was to be announced on Sept. 12, 2001. So on the 11th, we lefties were all online, discussing this coming revelation. I was rubbing my hands with glee and said, "You can bet, Karl Rove and Cheney knows about this from the WSJ people so don't be surprised if we are attacked by terrorists." Hahaha.

Well, when the first jet hit, instantly, everyone was yelling, "Reichstag fire!"

The fact that Bush was la-de-dah that morning is proof he wanted the attacks to succeed. Rumsfeld's la-de-dah attitude that morning is proof he also didn't want to impede the attacks.

The fact that the 9/11 commission didn't deal with all sorts of very relevant questions about this matter is proof the ruling elites want us to follow Bush on his path to war. Democrats want war. Israel wants this bombing to happen so they want it to happen. It looks like rank and file Democrats are against this, for the most part, but they have exactly zero control over any Democrats they vote into office, all of whom except for a very few, are owned, lock, stock and gunbarrel, by AIPAC, the Jewish/Zionist lobby which is today, flipping out over Hamas and demanding more war against the Palestinians.

Iran has a powerful ally. China and possibly Russia. Both are working quietly to consolidate a good relationship with Iran since this benefits both of them. Iran, yesterday, sent gas canisters to former Soviet states because of the Chechnyan bombing of the pipelines. So the deal is, one hand washes the other.

America isn't sending anything to former Soviet states except prisoners to be tortured. The dictators running various former Soviet states are demanding we pay them twice as much to keep our troops posted in their states. They know we are stuck and they will stick it to us, in the ribs.

Meanwhile, we think, bombing Iran will make it safer for Israel to finish their crimes against humanity and allow them a green light to destroy any idea of a Palestinian state. The propaganda raging against the Palestinians is in full bellow right now. And this, dear readers, is how WWIII will start, won't it?

For anyone can start a world war, even insigificant assassins shooting equally insignificant archdukes.

CIA Censors Presentation At Spy Ethics Conference


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

CIA spooks hold a Spy Ethics Conference only the papers to be delivered there are so heavily censored they can't be read at the Conference. The Cone of Silence is working just great, isn't it? ("Get Smart" was one of my father's favorite TV shows ever)

From the NYT:
A group of current and former intelligence officers and academic experts think there is, and they are meeting this weekend to dissect what some others in the field consider a flat-out contradiction in terms.

The organizers say recent controversies over interrogation techniques bordering on torture and the alleged skewing of prewar intelligence on Iraq make their mission urgent. At the conference on Friday and Saturday in a Springfield, Va., hotel, the 200 attendees hope to begin hammering out a code of ethics for spies and to form an international association to study the subject.
OK. If the organizers of this Spook Shinding thing our vicious torture and renditions were "bordering" on torture, well, kiss your ethical souls goodbye, you ain't seeing them no more.

This is why we are feared and hated by billions of people. Far from being the beacon of democracy, the light of the oppressed, the savior coming to rescue the maiden tied to the train tracks, we are actully the bad guys. Occassionally, the evil actions cause so many problems, they have to be stopped, temporarily. Some lower level agents are punished or even upper levels are threatened with punishment then the President forgives them and they slink off into the dark shadows from whence they came.

There are certainly ethical, nice CIA agents (ahem) but there are nasty, vicious, evil ones. And the nice ones are being driven out and replaced with an army of the Nacht und Nebel. Neo-nazis always had a niche in the CIA since the end of WWII, indeed, 100% bona fide Nazis worked with the CIA after WWII, for that matter!

The CIA supposedly spies overseas and not at home (hahahaha, I will die laughing, eventually). Of course, this is violated whenever a President wants to abuse the Constitution. Like today, with Bush running around America, telling us it was perfectly legal for him to ignore the law and spy on antiwar protestors. After all, Quakers are dangerous, they have ethics and ethics stink!
Ms. Mahle, now a foreign policy consultant, was scheduled to speak Saturday on the practice of rendition, in which terrorism suspects are seized abroad and delivered either to trial in the United States or to imprisonment in other countries.

But in a required security review, the C.I.A. refused to clear about one-fourth of her proposed 23-page text, Ms. Mahle said Friday. She said the deletions "gutted" the paper and made it impossible to deliver. She decided to attend the conference anyway, because she believes its goal is "so important."
No one is supposed to talk about our kidnapping and then torturing people by moving them to despotic lands that are not constrained by the Geneva Conventions nor the Constitution.

This is why we put our evil prison from hell in Cuba. The legal excuse is, Castro is an evil dictator so if we act like him on our base in Cuba, this is OK since it isn't in America even though it is run by Americans and flies our stupid flag.

Let's go back to the CIA's screwy past. One of their top things on the "to do" list is to watch out for secret agents and terrorists who plan to attack America or assassinate Kennedy. Well. We know how that business went, don't we?

Forget the 9/11 "This is my Trifecta! I love reading about goats!" Bush mess. Oswald was a sharp shooting Marine who defected to communist Russia in the height of the McCarthy Era Cold War Atomic terror 1950's hysteria. The CIA and everyone knew he defected because it was big news when he did it! So, one fine day, he suddenly comes back again. Now, since the CIA and FBI were spying on nearly everyone if not everyone who was even remotely interesting like Quaker grandmothers and Martin Luther King and anyone, why didn't the CIA pass off to the FBI the task of tracking Oswald very closely? Eh? What?

One article I read recently (not on file, alas) talked about how he was tracked by the FBI (and others) for 15 years after writing a letter which said, communists should be allowed to exercise the freedom of speech. Heck, when we students began to demand freedom of speech in the famous "Free Speech" marches and demonstrations in San Francisco and Berkeley, we were spied upon, too! So, during this period when innocent letters to the editor in smallish newspapers would trigger phone tapping and letter stealing as well as open eavesdropping and tracking the movements of citizens, how on earth can they pretend no one, absolutely no one, had the faintest idea that Oswald might be up to no good?

If there was anyone in America with a red flag of danger attached to him, he was Oswald.

Well, the Warren Report didn't report on all this very convincingly. Anyone reading the lies being spewed today, concerning obvious facts about the Challenger space shuttle disaster, can see that lying about salient, obvious facts doesn't faze our ruling class and the clowns who work for them.

You know, the Reagan shooting: today, the assassin gets to go home for visits. He gads about, no one pays any attention to him, in his comfortable asylum. No prison for him! And the GOP isn't angry about all this. And the Bushes...well, he is a friend of the family, so why would they protest his comfy treatment? And why aren't Americans upset about him? Why this lax, who gives a hoot attitude? Well, the press could stir things up and GOP Congress critters could yell about it but despite the professions of love for Reagan, they don't seem to give a hoot, do they?

The Reagan family doesn't care much, either! Isn't that peculiar?

The denials of the Bushes, pretending they never heard of the assassin or his family, easily debunked, were accepted by the press just like the lies about knowing Ken Lay or Abramoff are accepted.

So why do we have spies? We really don't need them since we are going around pretending there is no reality and not giving a hoot who we aggravate or violate. We can just openly become full time Nazguls and run around the planet in dark robes and red, glowing eyes and scare the bejeezus out of everyone, damn any "ethics".

Assassination! Torture! Steal! The CIA's motto.

One Day In Office And New Canadian Prime Minister Is Warring With Bush!


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Everyone assumed the new PM of Canada would kneel before American Power. Only he didn't. Instead, he immediately, like a dog, marked territory up in the Arctic by sending a warship there, freaking out Bush.

From the BBC:
Canadian Prime Minister-elect Stephen Harper has defended plans to send military ice-breakers to the Arctic in defiance of criticism from Washington.
US ambassador David Wilkins said on Wednesday that Washington opposed the plan and, like most other countries, did not recognise Canada's claims.

Mr Harper said his mandate was from the Canadian people, not Mr Wilkins.

Mr Harper's Conservatives have promised to defend Canada's northern waters from claims by the US, Russia and Denmark.
What with our rulers in Israel wailing about Hamas, this news isn't visible to Americans which is particularily hilarious since we are very dependent on Canada for energy and other necessities.

We imagine all that polar bear territory is our for the taking, forgetting about the entire history of US/Canadian relations which feature periodic wars, to say the least. And to think the Royal Canadian Mounties will dismount and let Bush run them over with his bike is plain silly. Even the Bobbies in England didn't like that.

Or perhaps this is all just another Monty Python episode?

With global warming, the Arctic becomes very different from hitherto, namely not just for dogsleds and kyacks. From the BBC:
Global sea levels could rise by about 30cm during this century if current trends continue, a study warns.
Australian researchers found that sea levels rose by 19.5cm between 1870 and 2004, with accelerated rates in the final 50 years of that period.
Manhattan better watch out. So should much of our coatal areas and forget Florida much less doomed New Orleans! Gone, gone, gone.

And not by mere flooding but from violent storms. Isn't this going to be interesting? While we focus on a few square miles of crummy realestate in the Middle East, we lose huge hunks of America to the encroaching sea?

Gads, time to tell the Canadians to ditch the Kyoto Accords! As if they should care!

K Street Lobbyists Lobby Congress To Not Stop K Street Lobbyists


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Keep that sewer of dirty money flowing! The GOP has to pretend to fix the clogged toilets but in reality, they desperately need to keep the corrupt system going because how else are they going to lord it over all of us, working hand in glove with corporate America and foreign governments, destroying our country?

From the NYT:
Leaders of the lobbying and advocacy community pushed back on Wednesday against the drive to impose new restrictions on lobbying, saying Congress risks cutting off lawmakers from valuable information and educational travel.
Oh, yeah, those educational golf courses and of course, cruise ships and hoola dancers. Got to study the problems of Aruba up close. Search for missing white women and all that.

Yeah. Right.
"I think elected leaders who cherish our unique freedoms outlined in the Bill of Rights of our Constitution should act very carefully to ensure the ability of Americans to educate and inform our elected leaders is not restricted," said John Engler, president of the manufacturers' association and a former Republican governor of Michigan.
Um, yeah, like all those factories demanding huge tax cuts and various funds and benefits or they will bolt to China! And our retired politicians, doing the negotiations, holding a gun to our heads while wheeling and dealing with their buddies in DC!

No wonder we are going down in flames.
In a letter sent Wednesday to members of Congress, the head of the American Society of Association Executives said he feared a ban on travel provided by private groups for lawmakers and staff members would deprive officials of views from those outside Washington.

"Congress must create a distinction between unnecessary 'fact-finding' trips to exotic locales where the agenda is more socially or recreationally driven, and educational trips to an association meeting or conference," wrote John H. Graham IV, president of the group.
Hahaha. Conferences=golf jaunts. Meetings=whorehouses and free flowing bars in Nevada or the Bahamas.

It is getting worse for the GOP dead wood employment agency on K Street. From the Washington Post:

Republican lawmakers yesterday ended their long practice of routinely summoning lobbyists to the Capitol to try to persuade them to hire their aides and colleagues, in the wake of the Jack Abramoff political corruption scandal.

GOP lawmakers for years have regularly presented lists of job openings on K Street to lobbyists to encourage them to hire Republicans over Democrats. The program is a remnant of the K Street Project once championed by Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) as a way to coerce trade associations and companies to hire Republicans as their top lobbyists and to warn firms that hired Democrats that they would not be welcome.
The squealing piggies in the GOP want desperately to make this a bipartisan scandal but they own it all, 100%. They went to great lengths to insure no Democrat gets so much as a penny.

The whore media has been very clever to always frame this issue as an "All politicians are corrupt" on so their buddies servicing them in the government will keep on trucking. This works, to some degree, but at the loss of increasing numbers of viewers and readers who are straying off the reservation and reading blogs for information.

Eventually, this whole rotted edifice will collapse from internal weaknesses but unfortunately, it will happen when we all collapse.

Looks like our auto industry is collapsing. Aside from the charity factories set up by the Japanese.

What To Do With Pesky Palestinians Roils World Leaders (Ouside of the Chinese)


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

All day, the stream of media stories are flowing. Palestinian politics have just left the Ice Ages and now are bubbling merrily along and this is going to free up the politics of more than one country, to our great annoyance. So I feel compelled to cover it all a little more. Thank you.


From Associated Press:
Members of the so-called Quartet — the U.S., the European Union, the United Nations and Russia — issued a statement saying: "The Quartet reiterates its view that there is a fundamental contradiction between armed group and militia activities and the building of a democratic state. A two-state solution to the conflict requires all participants in the democratic process to renounce violence and terror, accept Israel's right to exist, and disarm."

Rice also talked with Abbas and the Israeli foreign minister, Tzipi Livni. She will travel to Europe for further consultations Monday.

"You cannot have one foot in politics and another in terror," Rice told the World Economic Conference in Davos, Switzerland, via a telephone hookup from the State Department. "Our position on Hamas has therefore not changed."
Isn't it hilarious? The various conspiritors who attacked Iraq and are threatening Iran are all running around like chickens with their heads cut off, consulting various fortunetellers ("I see a dark, handsome terrorist in your future") and has been politicians, trying to find some way out of the mess they created for themselves when they decided to stomp on peasants.

Pissed peasants are extremely dangerous. The reason the British royalty lasted so long is their ancient formula: when choosing between pissed off peasants and pissed off nobles, side with the peasants or you will end up like Marie Antoinette.

Condi's statement about one foot in terror and one in politics is particularily funny coming from the front woman for the GOP death squadders who call for killing or blasting from outer space or having god rend apart, fellow Americans just because we dont' want them snooping on our private affairs. Golly. And "shock and awe"? Aren't we the world's biggest and nastiest terrorists?

And the Israeli Defence Force? A gang of terrorists on an epic scale.

Anyway, Condi rushes around meeting everyone but those who will be actually running Palestine. The news media just told the Chinese, America gives only a measly $150 million to the Palestinians while giving over $4 billion a year to the leeches in Israel. So the Chinese, ever eager to plonk down Go stones on the World Go Board, think, this is plenty cheap! They can be the sponsors of Palestine and Iran, this flanks Saudi Arabia and is on the border of Egypt, another place they are eyeing. America is tremendously unpopular in Egypt.

And Saudi Arabia. Hmmm. They can offer to build a deep sea port for Palestine. The Zionists and American imperialists will scream like crazed golems but this won't stop China who can take all this to the UN and demand they lay off or else.

After all, Israel gets much of their money from America and America gets a tremendous amount from China so neither can bite the hand that feeds them, can they? And the Palestinians can now play on the World Stage, they don't have much, but it is worth something.

Unlike the PLA, Hamas has never attacked Europe or other Muslim governments or menaced anyone but Israel. So unlike with us, in Muslim lands, they are much more popular and you can bet, the new Hamas head of state will visit Malaysia, Indonesia, Egypt, all the huge population centers in the Muslim world.

Everywhere he goes, he will be recieved like a king. That is, if Israel allows any Hamas leader to survive or travel. Killing them all will only empower the Palestinians who have many waiting in line, more than happy to die for what they believe. And if they move up in the world and become a Power, watch out.

After all, we are the world's biggest debtor nation with our industry on the ropes, our hopes failing, our government nearly bankrupt, gads.

What a world.
Bush also called on Abbas, a U.S. ally, to remain in office despite Fatah's defeat by Hamas in parliamentary elections. Abbas, elected separately a year ago, said he was committed to negotiations with Israel and suggested talks would be conducted through the Palestine Liberation Organization, a possible way around a Hamas-led government.
This is errant nonsense. You don't negotiate with losers, you do it with winners. Abbas has no "street cred" so he can't sign away the birthright of Esau without Esau's permission. If Abbas wants to be a total Quisling tool, fine, he won't surivive long, making a seperate peace over the objections of the ruling party.
"A political party that articulates the destruction of Israel as part of its platform is a party with which we will not deal," he said at a White House news conference. But he also said, "Peace is never dead because people want peace."
How can the Palestinians have peace? No one, at least no one who has any gumption, wants peace if it means being tortured to death, starved to death, locked in a ghetto. This isn't peace, this is pure evil.
Washington was shocked by Hamas' landslide victory. Sen. Lindsey Graham (news, bio, voting record), R-S.C., called it "a de-facto declaration of war by the Palestinian people against the state of Israel." Rep. Nita Lowey (news, bio, voting record), D-N.Y., said the outcome was "very disturbing" and Hamas needed to disarm, denounce violence and recognize Israel's right to exist.
America and Israel not only have nukes, together,they have the majority of the world's military. Demanding this people who have only a few feeble arms, disarm even more so we can torture them at our leisure without fear of them punching back, is...pure evil.

Where is Israel's declaration that Palestine should exist 100% within their post-Israeli seizure of 1948? I don't see it at all. So why demand they cede everything, now? That is surrender and surrender only means more thefts, more abuse.

If China ends up sponsoring the new Palestinian state, this will be most amusing especially if they give Palestine silkworm missiles, just for one example.

Power grows out of the barrel of a silkworm missile launcher.

Oh, and I almost forgot. From the NYT:
But in a news conference, President Bush also struck a conciliatory note, saying that it was clear that Hamas's performance was a triumph of democracy, among Palestinians in particular and Arabs in general, and a rebuke to "the old guard there." It was striking that his tone was less one of confrontation than of inviting Hamas to change its ways while the world watches.
Less confrontational? He merely asked them to surrender, disarm, and obey. How sweet. Gah. Typical NYT pro-Israeli editorial comment. Bush always hated Fatah just like the Zionists, so relishing their collapse is no surprize, but if he thinks Hamas is going to be ineptly run, he better think twice (thinking even once is a challenge for him, though).

Again, the Chinese are probably calling Hamas right now and opening negotiations including sponsoring students at their fearsomely effective Diplomacy school I blogged about here (will try to find that story, it isn't easy, this blog is already getting pretty big!).

Democrats in Alaska Demand E-Vote Data, GOP Operatives Refuse


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

GOP operatives in Alaska refuse to hand over voting data, claiming, "Private corporate information" as an excuse. I thought elections were public matters! The farce of democracy goes on in America, one of the few counties on earth that can't count votes.

From Anchorage Daily News:
The state Division of Elections has refused to turn over its electronic voting files to the Democrats, arguing that the data format belongs to a private company and can't be made public.

The Alaska Democratic Party says the information is a public record essential for verifying the accuracy of the 2004 general election and must be provided.

The official vote results from the last general election are riddled with discrepancies and impossible for the public to make sense of, the Democrats said Monday. A detailed analysis of the underlying data could answer lingering questions about an election many thought was over more than a year ago, they say.
With all the howling and bleating over the Palestinians voting and of course, the hidden tallying of Iraq's votes which denied the majority population, the Shi'ites, their obvious victory there, we would think the "democracy is great" blow-hards of the GOP would at least cooperate a tiny bit on counting votes and examining the flawed tools we use for voting, tools owned lock, stock and barrel by two right wing GOP operatives!

The idea that vote counting is a private matter for a business and public officials have no business looking into vote machine operations is ludicrous. This proves the last three elections were totally fake. Since our system is this corrupt, it should be declared null and void and all laws passed by the House and Senate and President under false circumstances, are all fraudulent.

Then we start all over again. This includes the Bush tax cuts. All an expensive fraud.

But then, the media is a fraud, too. This is why we are deep in red ink all over the place. The red ink wasn't the will of the people but the will of the frauds who cheated us out of legitimate votes in three elections.

Arrest them all, while we are at it. I know of Republicans who cling to every news story of one or another corrupt Democrat, hoping this would OK their rank theft of this nation. Well, Democrats aren't even remotely perfect but they can't hold a candle to the ultimate corruption in America: stealing so many elections, ripping off voters of the most precious thing they have: the right to choose who runs this joint.

Our ancestors fought a revolution over this very issue.

Already the Neo-Con Editorials Calling For Basically Annihilating Palestinians Come In


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Already, the Zionist-neo-con editorials demanding we pretty much annihilate the Palestinians are pouring in. Of course, there will be zero editorials celebrating the fact that the Palestinian people got to finally choose for themselves or acknowledging the fact that Fatah ended up being Quisling betrayers of the Palestinian people and that "peace talks" were unjust and merely demands for full surrender.

From Daniel Pipes who was forced to resign due to corruption charges:
As Hamas, the Islamist terror group, surges in the polls with a prospect of joining the Palestinian Authority or even running it, governments worldwide must decide on their responses.

An increasing number of voices are calling for Hamas to be recognized, arguing that the imperatives of governance would tame it, ending its arch-murderous vocation (it has killed about 600 Israelis) and turning it into a responsible citizen.

Even President Bush made this argument in early 2005: "There's a positive effect when you run for office. Maybe some will run for office and say, 'Vote for me, I look forward to blowing up America.' ... I don't think so. I think people who generally run for office say, 'Vote for me, I'm looking forward to fixing your potholes, or making sure you got bread on the table.' "
You see, the belief that the Palestinian people should stick to fixing potholes in their walled-in ghettos is ridiculous. No sane person would vote in such a leader unless one has given up all hope and desires for justice.

This is why despotic rulers never allow real elections. The Israelis pulled many tricks, trying to prevent Hamas from winning. Everything from trying to prevent voting in Jerusalem, assassination, arrests, threats to the general population of retaliation if they voted for Hamas, everything. Of course, each of these actions confirmed to most Palestinians that the only really good vote was the one for the candidates their oppressors hated! Of course, now the "negotiations for peace" will collapse since it was all about surrendering, unilaterally. The Palestinian people are obviously itching for a big fight and this catches the corrupt, obese despots of Saudi Arabia in a dangerous trap.

For Mecca lies just south of this brewing war and on the other side lurks bin Laden who, far from being "decapitated" or "defeated" is actually vindicated and strengthening daily in power, the power we can't stop so easily since it is religious power and religious believers will often fight to the death, not like us in Iraq, gingerly going around, butchering people while praying no one can retaliate, this force being unleashed wants to die in war!
The historical record, however, refutes this "pothole theory of democracy." Mussolini made the trains run, Hitler built autobahns, Stalin cleared the snow and Castro reduced infant mortality - without any of these totalitarians giving up their ideological zeal nor their grandiose ambitions. Likewise, Islamists in Afghanistan, Iran and Sudan have governed without becoming tamed. If proof is needed, note the Iranian efforts to build nuclear weapons amid an apocalyptic fervor.

Hamas might have hired a spin doctor to improve its image in the West, but its leadership candidly maintains it has no intention of changing. Responding to a question on whether Bush is correct that U.S. engagement with Hamas would moderate the terror group, Mahmoud Zahar, a Hamas founder, laughed and declared that this tactic "will not succeed." In recent days, Zahar has publicly reiterated that Hamas still intends to destroy Israel.
Why didn't Hamas hire a "spin doctor" like the giant corps of Zionist spin doctors that insure America is wall to wall propaganda against Palestinians? It is very simple.

They can't. There is no way anything they say or do will penetrate the mile high walls that guard America from any sympathetic information about Palestinians. Our intellectual ghetto is designed to keep out any information that might help us understand why a massive Jihad is brewing and how our actions are creating this monster. The weeping about "Why are they attacking us?" on 9/11 was ridiculous and totally fake.

Proof?

Bush ran off to the UN immediately and announced he supported the idea of creating a real Palestinian state. This is how he won UN approval to invade Afghanistan. Immediately, Israel launched a full scale war against the Palestinians and began frantically building a huge wall around their communities. They had to weasel all the money for this out of American taxpayers, using our international credit with China and Japan.
Fortunately, U.S. policy remains steadfast: "We haven't dealt with Hamas, and we won't deal with Hamas members who are elected," says U.S. embassy spokesman Stewart Tuttle in Israel. That is a good start; ideally, there should be no dealings at all with a Palestinian Authority that includes Hamas in its leadership.

It was a mistake to permit Hamas to compete in elections. Like al-Qaeda, Hamas should be destroyed, not legitimated, much less courted.
This is truly horrible. The only way we can "destroy" Hamas is to kill, physically murder, the vast majority of the Palestinian people. And this, in a nutshell, is the Final Solution, the plan that will fix the Jewish Lebensraum difficulties. Extermination.

And this will be the match that will light the fires of the Apocalypse which will also be called World War III.

Hamas Wins Elections----Imperial Efforts At Suppression Fail


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Hour after hour, headlines in the Imperial realms shouted that Fatah, not Hamas, won the Palestinian election. This is the first, real election, ever held in Palestinian lands, wherein everyone could vote no matter what religion or ethnic tribal ties. It doesn't surprize me at all to see the trapped, displaced peasants supporting Hamas. This is the revolution sweeping Muslim lands: the peasants following the path of jihad, fighting the Christian/Jewish invasions.

From the NYT:
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas will ask Hamas to form the next Palestinian government after the Islamic militants swept parliamentary elections, and the defeated Fatah Party will serve in the opposition, a senior Fatah legislator said Thursday.

A Hamas-only government, without Fatah as a moderating force, is sure to throw Mideast peacemaking into turmoil. The Islamic militants, who carried out dozens of suicide bombings and seek Israel's destruction, have said they oppose peace talks and will not disarm. Israel and the United States have said they will not deal with Hamas.
The New York Times is a Zionist newspaper. They always look at things through Zionist lenses. So they can't see the obvious. As Arafat grew corrupt and turned himself into a tool of the Israel/American empire, he became so profoundly unpopular, when he died, there was little mourning in Palestine. I noticed this and wondered if the American media would put 2+2 together but of course, they couldn't and didn't, just like it is obvious Sharon is a brain-dead living corpse and this hasn't been any headlines despite weeks of breathless headlines like, "Sharon's Right Arm Moves!" (no surprize, ja?)

The need to steal from Muslims is very strong because they have things we want badly. Land, oil, water, you name it, we want it. Bush and his pro-Zionist neo-con buddies have been caught with their pants down in Iraq with the illegal war they launched. To keep themselves out of Nuremburg style trials, they decided to start a revolution in Muslim lands, namely, to have real elections monitored by the UN.

This has got to be the funniest thing that ever happened since the French Revolution.

So in a few places, Muslim peasants finally have a voice, a chance to choose leaders and they are doing this with a vengence. Time and again, our sponsored tools go down in spectacular defeat. We lost the hearts and minds of the people and they are letting us know as loudly as possible. Imagine real elections in Egypt or Saudi Arabia! In every case, there is 100% probability that the Jihadists will win.

When the Anglo/American empire systematically destroyed any nationalism that popped up in these important countries we want to dominate and loot, the only alternative was religious war. And so, here we are, 60 years later, staring at the growing maelstrom of Jihad. Do these people have any other choices? Obviously, not.

Bin Laden blazed a path, he showed everyone how to fight the empire and now, millions and millions are joining forces to do exactly that. Bin Laden, like so many revolutionary leaders before him, can be killed or supressed but the seething masses are much harder to supress once a fire is lit under them and they collectively agree there is no other path but war, then you get a raging war that is fought, peasant-style: brutally, daily, unorganized but relentless. The eye on the prize keeps them going for they know, slavery and death are the only alternatives, so why not feel the joy and energy of revolution?

For despite the killings and brutality, revolutions are....FUN. The element of fun is often overlooked by people fearful of change. Look at the faces in the photos from Palestine: they are happy and raring to go. They know the Israelis will attack them mercilessly and they will fight back, mercilessly, and they are looking forwards to this battle and feel, Allah is willing and Allah is finished punishing them all for not carrying His message of Jihad forwards.

Unlike Arafat who was fighting a secular fight for land for some tribes, some religions, this is now a religious war that will spill over the borders, no ifs, ands or buts. When the Franks invaded the Holy Land a thousand years ago, the Muslim forces suffered many defeats but in the end, they drove out the invaders after undergoing huge changes within. In 1250, the alien Mongols destroyed Bagdad and drove the Muslims all the way to the shores of the Red Sea and on the border of Egypt, were defeated at last. Then, the religious mullahs went amongst the Mongols and their fellow tribes such as the Turks, and converted these fearsome warriors to Islam and they, in turn, swept forwards to create the Ottoman Empire.
Israel and the United States have said they would not deal with a government led by Hamas, which has carried out dozens of suicide bombings and which they consider a terrorist group.

Acknowledging the Hamas victory, Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia and his Cabinet ministers resigned Thursday -- hours before official results from Wednesday's vote were released.
This is pure madness. We aren't going to "deal" with the Palestinian's chosen representatives? Talk about sore losers!

We can't negotiate a peace with puppets because this would not only be wrong, it would be a waste of time. We have to grapple with the fact that the Zionist/Anglo/American imperial push has totally outraged and has completely motivated the greater mass of the people in Muslim lands to choose war and revolution over dealing with us as if they were our slaves. And as far as I am concerned, this is a correct thing for them to do since we have given them no decent alternative.

"Eat dirt and die," isn't very appealling. Obviously, "Die in the dirt!" is the answer. All previous negotiations in the past meant only that the Palestinians would have to accept things that were bad for them, over and over, as Israel used the American club to smash them into smithereens. By paying Arafat bribes, they got him to sign the dotted line. Well, there are no more Arafats left.

And the assassination of all Hamas leaders has backfired, as it ought. Arresting and killing all opposition works only if people are willing to be enslaved. Since the Zionists are offering the people nothing, there is no reason to stop fighting and now, the fighting will pick up, after a pause.

During which, the Palestinian leaders will go out and form new alliances with other people. And that, my friends, will be another victory for bin Laden's Jihad. We know who will be the allies. And we won't like it one bit.

Kellogg, Root and Brown Gets FEMA Contract To Build Concentration Camps


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

A $385 million contract was awarded to KRB to build detention and processing camps for "emergencies". America has more prisons per capita than anyone outside of China. And we need more? Let's review the Bush/Nazi past.

From Legit Gov via Marketplace:
KBR awarded $385M Homeland Security contract for U.S. detention centers 24 Jan 2006 KBR, the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton Co., said Tuesday it has been awarded a contingency contract from the Department of Homeland Security to support its Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities in the event of an emergency. The maximum total value of the contract is $385 million and consists of a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to expand existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations Program facilities... The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency [?!?], as well as the development of a plan to react to a [Bush-created] national emergency, the company said.
Let's review the history of Naziism: the German people, after they went bankrupt and lost a war, went insane. Despite being very "civilized", they decided to become moronic monsters and set out to literally enslave or murder as many humans as possible, all in the name of Homeland Security.

We are well set on this same path.

Why do we think Bush and his neo nazis went to great lengths to deride and mock the Geneva Conventions for nothing? Of course not. Bush is a career criminal whose family unto the latest generation, has trouble staying out of cop cars, firmly believe in exceptionalism to the greatest extreme. I went to Wikipedia to see what they had on the Bushes and it was a total farce, full of lies, evasions and outright rewriting history. For example, they state that the Geronimo skull business was "debunked" but didn't give any proof of this.

The stories about that matter are, as far as I am concerned, and my concern isn't distant but close, real. Namely, yes, they have the skull and it is, as far as my contacts believe, in the Texas White House. Just like Jeb Bush channels "Chang", the guy who betrayed the Shoalin Temple, Bush Jr channels Geronimo.

I always worry about the corporate/military/industrial/raw resources extraction complex. This thing can morph quickly into a Death Machine and all they need are willing hands to do the on the ground, dirty work. This is why they didn't punish the man who beat a general to death in utter violation of the Geneva Conventions but punished soldiers who photographed themselves torturing and then put it online, alerting the public to these crimes.

Here is one example of how war criminals who assisted in killing literally millions of people and earning vast profits doing it, serving only a handful of years after the Nuremberg Trials: From the Dr. Rath Foundation:
From "Arbeit macht frei" to "Codex Alimentarius"

Just fifteen years after they were convicted in the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, Bayer, BASF and Hoechst were again the architects of the next major human rights offences. In 1962, they established the Codex Alimentarius Commission. (Remark made by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation)

This dark period of German history is inextricably bound to one man, Fritz ter Meer:
He was a member of the Managing Board of IG Farben from its inception to its dissolution. As the Wartime Manager, he was responsible for IG Auschwitz.

In the Nuremberg Tribunal, ter Meer stated: "Forced labor did not inflict any remarkable injury, pain, or suffering on the detainees, particularly since the alternative for these workers would have been death."

In 1948, ter Meer was sentenced by the Nuremberg Tribunal to seven years in prison for plundering and slavery.
In 1952, his sentence was commuted, due to the influence of powerful friends.

From 1956-1964, he was reinstated as a member of the Managing Board of Bayer AG.

In 1962, ter Meer was one of the architects of the "Codex Alimentarius" - Commission and one of the main designers of the schemes that would profit from human suffering. (Remark made by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation)

The deceptive title "Codex Alimentarius" is no accident. It was devised by the same firms and indeed the same individuals, who gave the Auschwitz concentration camp inmates the deceptive slogan "Arbeit mach frei" ("Work makes you free"). (Remark made by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation)

As long as the Nazi infection continues to work its influence and threaten the lives of untold millions, no German has the right to proclaim that the Nazi era is finished.
I represented my father at some ceremonies on the anniversary of the liberation of Dachau in 1968. It was a shattering experience. Only, unlike many today, instead of viewing it as a thing set against the Jews, I looked at it much more universally. Namely, it can happen to anyone, just look at how messed up Israelis are today, acting more and more like deranged Nazis, stirring up a witches' brew of hate which might trigger WWIII.

There are a lot of unhinged people on this planet and any country that hands power over to psychopaths should expect crimes to happen and to multiply to the nth degree, Indeed, there is no upper limit aside from annihilation which is why, being civilized in the saner sense, is so important.

Bush, in public, pretends he is OK with the flood of illegal labor crossing our borders with impunity. This is because they make excellent semi-slave labor. Easy to cheat, great for strike breaking, can't vote but if allowed in, are tallied up in the census so they swell the relative size of various states when it comes to dividing up the spoils of politics, just like blacks were in the south when they couldn't vote.

The rage in the working class over all this is about to explode exponentially. So they have to have these camps ready to take in hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who are "excess" humans since their home states don't want them, either. You can guess what happens next.

The Bush push to hide all the paperwork, all the information, all the meetings, everything from us, is part and parcel of the Bush family Nazi plans. From the Guardian:
George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.
This is a must-read article.
The most tantalising part of the story remains shrouded in mystery: the connection, if any, between Prescott Bush, Thyssen, Consolidated Silesian Steel Company (CSSC) and Auschwitz.
What a surprize. Bush Jr's arrest record, his military records, his records while in office are ALL shrouded in "mystery" which is deliberately concoted by these Nach und Nebel Neo Nazis.From Wikipedia:
There are unsubstantiated rumors concerning Prescott Bush's associations with the Nazi party. The Anti-Defamation League has stated, "Rumors about the alleged Nazi 'ties' of the late Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, have circulated widely through the Internet in recent years. These charges are untenable and politically motivated."
Wink at Israeli spying, hire an Israeli citizen to run "Homeland Security," secretly promise the Jewish leaders that, no, the Bushes won't turn the sword of Naziism on them, only on Muslims, all they have to do is help cover up all the dusty graves, scatter Jewish ashes, support Bush and he will crown them.

With a crown of thorns! For history is full to the brim with stories of betrayal as more than one lamb has walked into the lion's den, trustingly. The far right seeths with hatred of Israel and considers the Israelis to be behind 9/11. The people who will run the concentration camps, if we end up doing this, will be right wingers. And they can't wait, I fear.

More than once, in history, people have dug their own graves. The refusal to understand why the Bushes were Nazis and why secret organizations like the Skull and Bones are dangerous, satanic ritualist death worshipping power hungry psychopaths is vital for our own survival.

Remember, first they came for the socialists and communists, then the disabled and insane, then the Jews...and so on.

Bush Refusing To Let Congress See Papers From Katrina Disaster


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Even as Bush and Cheney and the Army of the Night, aka, the corporate news media, run around America shouting that it is OK for them to spy illegally on us all, they refuse to obey Congressional demands for information, haughtily declaring that it is super top secret and nya, nya noogies.

From the New York Times:
The Bush administration, citing the confidentiality of executive branch communications, said Tuesday that it did not plan to turn over certain documents about Hurricane Katrina or make senior White House officials available for sworn testimony before two Congressional committees investigating the storm response.

The White House this week also formally notified Representative Richard H. Baker, Republican of Louisiana, that it would not support his legislation creating a federally financed reconstruction program for the state that would bail out homeowners and mortgage lenders. Many Louisiana officials consider the bill crucial to recovery, but administration officials said the state would have to use community development money appropriated by Congress.
So not only is the Little Bubble Boy dictator not going to cooperate with the GOP run Congress, he is also telling the victims of the hurricane to go to hell in a rowboat, too.
"There has been a near total lack of cooperation that has made it impossible, in my opinion, for us to do the thorough investigation that we have a responsibility to do," Senator Joseph I. Lieberman,
Bush is in serious trouble if his top poodle is calling for his scalp. What next,Barr siding with Gore? Heh.

And lest we forget the agony of the survivors, lots of unhappiness, growing despair. From CNN:
A New Orleans couple who had been chased from their home by Hurricane Katrina died in an apparent murder-suicide, leaving behind an infant and a 4-year-old boy who had been beaten so severely he couldn't open his eyes, police said.
You know, even today, they refuse to publish a realistic death toll. Aside from the identified 2,000 bodies, there are still over 3,400 people missing. Minimum.

Swept to sea, for the most part, or still trapped in the ruins, bodies turn up all the time and there is no remarking about it.

I noticed this when the tidalwaves hit last year. Namely, a number of Americans died, over 200, and there was virtually no mention of them, not so much as a peep. Certainly, no totals. Not like, say, Britain, which tabulated carefully how many of their own were swept away.

Since then, the death toll due to global warming here in America climbs ever higher and is ignored ever more studiously. Instead, we revel in our unusally warm winter, forgetting that the weather bodes ill for us. Europe is gripped in a terrible cold wave and this could slide over here, too, but not only that, the warmer it is over the Gulf of Mexico, the Mid Atlantic, the more ferocious the looming hurricane season will be. It looks like it will be massively dangerous starting even earlier than last year!

As we happily build and rebuild in hurricane alley, our government is dragged into bankruptcy, but even with this mess, it doesn't compare to our mess in Iraq which is sucking up financing at a mad rate.
