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.

SGT Gehlen
USCENTCOM Public Affairs
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.

Bush Cutting Funds To Coast Guard RESCUE Operations!


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Just like the years Bush cut money for fixing or improving levees, now he is cutting funds to the Coast Guard especially their rescue work. Arrest Bush. He killed thousands last fall, he plans to kill even more thousands this summer.

From the Washington Times:
Capitol Hill lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say the Bush administration is cutting critical Coast Guard funding, including $31 million for rescue missions, despite the agency's success in rescuing 33,000 storm victims in the last hurricane season.
"The cuts to search and rescue are particularly incomprehensible in light of the heroic performance of the Coast Guard during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita," said Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican and chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
Incredible, isn't it? Leaves one speechless.

Here is my blog during the hurricane rescue operation."And His Own Mother Drowned":
From Overspun::Click on this website and watch the video of the President of Jefferson Parish, LA. The interview starts out with the usual blather and the thanking of everyone but then goes off the rails when Mr. Broussard starts talking about how FEMA turned back a Coast Guard vessel that was trying to give him diesel fuel for the generators then turned by the Walmart tractor trailers then cut off his communication headquarters forcing him to post armed guards to shoot any FEMA people trespassing.
Sigh. Breaks the heart. This is so disgusting. Any American that believes that Bush is protecting us should go hunting with Cheney. I will provide the birdshot.

Here is another story,"Military Pushes Bush Aside."
I knew that the Bush chaos machine will provoke the military into taking action. Just this hour, the military has forced Bush to set Brownie the Lying Pixie out of FEMA and the top Coast Guard Admiral is now in charge.

From ABC news:
Sept. 9, 2005 — Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown, under criticism due to his management of Hurricane Katrina as well as reported discrepancies on his resume, is expected to be out as head of the agency very soon, informed sources have told ABC News.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff is expected to announce that Brown will return to Washington, D.C., and Vice Admiral Thad W. Allen of the Coast Guard will be elevated to take over disaster relief efforts.
Nothing like success killing the competent! Bush rewards and promotes incompetence and fires people who do well. It is well worth going to the September archives here and just look at the cartoons. My oh my. Was I busy!

This level of malign incompetence isn't mere stupidity. Bush has a history of being a psychopath. He loved executing people, he loved blowing up frogs while running around, laughing. He and his wife literally run over people and Cheney shoots them in the face and then feels more sorry for himself, they are all murderous psychopaths and once again, we have proof of this.

The military is revving up the Vietnam War "gun airships" to shoot up civilian communities in Iraq. We are spending over $2 billion a week there and the fighting rages higher and higher. Meanwhile, Bush plans to let us drown. And does nothing about pollution and global warming. Latest news is, 54% of America thinks Bush isn't making America safe. Well. DUH. About time.

This is due to the media not reporting the "Bin Laden Attack" memo once Congress got their paws on it. Nor did the media connect the bin Laden/Bush family dots. Nor did they show him laughing with children while the rest of America was running around, screaming, "We are under attack!" He even admitted, "I thought, America is under attack" when Card told him about the second jet. So why did he sit there?

And the pictures from the WTC. Amazing. Bush, standing on the smoking ruins, standing on over 3,000 corpses, look at the photos!

HE IS LAUGHING. He can barely contain his mirth. Gah. Arrest him now.

Israel's Defense Forces Use Only Kid Gloves On Jewish Terroists While Killing Palestinian Children For No Reason


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

All the foo-foo about "terrorism" and yet, when protected people do terrorist acts, they are carefully handled so not to even bruise them, much less, kill them. So today, in Israel, three terrorists who are not Palestinian, attack a Palestinian-Christian church. They are protected from the outraged crowd and carefully whisked away by the IDF who then turns around, and in another community, shoots dead a 15 year old youth for going up on the roof to see a fire fight! (The IDF killing other Palestinians)

From AP:
A distraught Israeli couple, joined by another woman, entered one of Christianity's holiest sites Friday and set off explosions, police said, sparking a large riot in this biblical town in northern Israel.

At least eight people, including five police, were injured in the melee, which appeared to be under control by late Friday.

The assailants, who were not believed to be linked to any Jewish nationalist group, were disguised as Christian pilgrims when they entered the Basilica of the Annunciation, police said.

They remained barricaded inside the building for several hours before police broke through a crowd of several thousand angry protesters and took the three away.
Like the many bombs hitting mosques in Iraq, this is what our media and our rulers call "terrorism" but because it was being done by people who we label as "good", they are described as "distraught" rather than as "cold blooded terrorists." This is how language is used to modify acts.

The church goers who were attacked were "distraught." The fact that these terrorists took the trouble to get disguises and sneak in, this is no sudden, out of control act but a planned plot of more than two people to do a terrorist act. But no where in the article are they called "terrorists."

From AP:
Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian teenager and wounded a second person during an early morning raid Friday in the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinians said, the latest death in a recent flare-up in violence between Israel and the Palestinians.

Palestinian witnesses said Amer Basiouny, 15, was shot when he went up on the roof of his family's home in the Ein Beit Ilma refugee camp in Nablus to see what was going on after gunfire erupted in his neighborhood during the pre-dawn Israeli raid.

The Israeli army said troops in the camp shot an armed man and a second person who threw an object, believed to have been a bomb, at the soldiers during the raid.

Residents said Basiouny was not armed. A second person was lightly wounded by shrapnel that flew into his house, they said. There were no reports of a second person being shot, they said.
Israel reminds me of the Deep South. As minorities fumed under the whip of a very unfair and downright evil regime of racist oppression, the police would handle blacks in the most brutal way imaginable and not feel the slightest guilt while white folk committing very grave crimes were hardly arrested, much less, punished, no matter how many people they killed.

This system was so bad, whites could have themselves photographed at murder sites complete with the body hanging from some tree and then sell the photos as soveniers.

Meanwhile, Russia cuts a deal with the USA and Israel. From AP:
Hamas' leader made the militant Palestinian group's highest-level diplomatic trip ever Friday to hear out Russia's urging that it recognize Israel and abandon violence, but emerged showing no softening in hostility toward the Jewish state.

Hamas political chief Khaled Mashaal welcomed the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and other officials, calling it "good, constructive and open," but he did not discuss details of the four-hour talks.

A statement from the Foreign Ministry, however, said the Russian side urged Hamas to endorse the "rejection of violence as a means of obtaining political goals," observe existing Israeli-Palestinian agreements and recognize "Israel's right to exist."
This snarled ball of yarn will unravel only during the Apocalypse when all will be turned into one, big, molten mess.

Religious forces being unleashed by all this are hard to quantify but I feel in my bones that religious insanity is at the bottom of all this and we know there is no upper limit to the death and destruction religions can create when they express the will of the Gods which is, nearly always, malign. I, personally, think "Gods" are our ids, that deep, psychotic inner self that dwells in the reptilian parts of our minds. We humans have brutally annihilated anyone and anything in our paths and as we crown ourselves as the penultimate species, we lash out at each other with amazing brutality.

When, for example, that little Palestinian girl was shot in the back by IDF snipers, no one in Israel said so much as a peep about it. The government didn't punish the murderer nor did it apologize to the girl's family. And we can expect no feelings of sympathy going the other direction, either.

In Iraq, the religious riots and budding civil war has been put on pause today only by banning all commerce, traffic and human activity. Already, the various religious sects are seperating populations so they can go at it in ernest in the near future.

Bush went to Pakistan where the entire city center was cleared of all people so our poppin jay President can parade about, pretending to be some sort of diplomatic wonder boy. The dictator there had to use a lot of muscle to make it look as if someone is happy to see Bush aside from himself.

Bush flew into the country with the lights turned off, the name of his jet, hidden, in the dark of night, just like his entry into Afghanistan. These are our "allies".

The Palestinians are finding all doors closed to them. The religious bigots running Israel think, this will bring victory. Nacht und Nebel power! They imagine, starving, helpless, attacked by police dogs, herded into camps surrounded by barbed wire, shot at by irritable Jewish guards, even little children shot if they approach any perimeter of these death camps, this will save Israel from the Apocalypse.

Sad to watch the fulfillment of that dire prophecy. The Whore of Babylon is us.

NASA and USAF Spying On American Running Antiwar Organization


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

As I keep warning everyone, our government which is getting as bad as the Soviet Union at this point, spies on activists who are struggling to contain or inform citizens about what our military/industrial complex is up to. I was not surprized to see NASA also doing this. NASA has become an Orwellian ghoul rather than a civilian mission to the stars.

From Wired News:
For more than a year, Bruce Gagnon strongly suspected he and his family were being spied on, but he didn't have any evidence, and he didn't know who might be behind it.

An Air Force veteran, Gagnon is one of the most prominent activists in the world concerned with space weapons. He directs the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space from a small office in Maine.

Still, he was caught off guard when the American Civil Liberties Union called and told him it had uncovered court documents revealing that NASA and the U.S. Air Force were secretly monitoring him.
Since Bush and Rummy allowed supposed Muslim "terrorists" to attack America with impunity while the entire miltiary sat on its collective ass, funds for spying on Americans has flowed freely. Even NASA, which claims poverty, has time and money to hire an army of right wing flacks to harrass and harry scientists and dissidents including me. Even NOAA has been forced to hire and support people whose sole function is to track and harrass anyone writing about global warming, again, they did this to me, too!

NASA's goon squad was ticked off about my Reagan wanting to talk to the school teacher in space piece, for example. They wanted me to know my story was false even though I know it was true since I was directly involved in trying to stop the shuttle from being launched that morning due entirely to concerns about severe cross winds.

I track who looks at my website and "unknown country" is code for USA government goons.

The real war as far as the American right wingers and their goofy leader, Bush, are concerned is the war to destroy democracy in America and stopping liberalism. This is why our civil liberties are evaporating, Congress is openly mocked by Bush who basically says every time he signs a bill that he will enforce the law only if he agrees otherwise it is meaningless! And he refuses to share vital government information with Congress especially when he is openly breaking the laws concerning spying on American citizens.

This is the rock bottom of our country; the right to have an opinion, speak in public, organize groups of people, the First Amendment. The news that a poll recently done showing Americans know the names of that stupid TV show, the Simpsons, characters better than they know the first 5 Amendments shows how dire our situation is.

For TV is now training minds, taking over the thinking parts, like a parasite, they eat up memory and displace reality. When the amended but still very unconstitutional Patriot Act was passed overwhelmingly in Congress, one member stood up, Feinstein, to read the Constitution and as he showed, point by point, how very unconstitutional these laws just passed were, all of Congress yawned.

"It is just a scap of paper."

To Keep Things In Perspective, Here Is A Retrospective Of All My Katrina Postings


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Since Katrina has reared her ugly head in the news and because Bush and his minions and fellow criminals like Chertoff who should be deported, it is time to review what happened in the past and what these criminal people did, their attitude, their words, their lack of deeds!

Hurricane Marti GrasI talk about not only the hurricane but the lacksidasical attitude of all the officials who aren't taking it serioiusly, seemingly, since no body is evacuating New Orleans. People are beginning to escape. This is Aug. 28th.

Aug. 30th:
Reason # 6488 why it is totally demented to send nearly the entire National Guard to Iraq. Gads. And this week was all about more base closings! Emptying out our empire to the furthest corners of the earth and then attacking Cindy Sheehan for suggesting they come home.

LASSIE, COME HOME!

Lord in heaven, what will it take? Bush wants to compare this to WWII?

Well, at the end of WWII, Germany lay in fucking ruins, you moron which is what we will be dwelling in at this pace. In ancient China, if bad things happened via the Gods, the Emperor was sacrificed to placate the deities. We don't do that but in this case, impeaching the idiot who plunged us all into a costly,wasteful war is most appropriate.

I am going to the Peace Pagoda at dawn to pray for the many dead and those who will be beset by Death's cold hands. I really wish I could save them all.

But I am not President of the USA. Nope. Nor are any of my readers.
Already, I am a raving maniac about the hurricane.

LootI talk about the looting and the water rising. This is Aug. 31st.
The domed stadium is rapidly becoming the doomed stadium. The military are bringing in ever more people but the water is rising fast and it seems they no longer are bringing people in. The water is 3' deep around this "refuge" which is now a trap. People are already dying inside. Of course, the sick are the first to go. One man's oxygen tank ran out and he died. Others who need diabetes medication are now getting sicker. There is no way to dispose of the bodies but to take them outside into the hot sun.


Aug. 31 Katrina Blows Past UsI thought there might be a sane response to the hurricane which was whipping past my mountain that day.

Sept. 1st. Rescue Work Suspended!
I am crying. It is so hard to read the news now. Many are dying. There are dead bodies in the Stadium. Babies are dying. More people stream in and few get out and supplies aren't showing up because there isn't enough helicopters...they are all in Iraq and Afghanistan!---and people are dying.

Right now. I can't save a soul. Most of us have to stand by and watch this horror.
Sigh. Even now, I can't read this part without crying. My god. A must read. How I hate Bush!

More News From New Orleans CNN is getting many thousands of emails today nearly uniformly demanding to bring the troops home. Word is out on the streets that many troops in Iraq are ticked off because they can't defend America. Bin Laden sends us another taunting tape mocking our rulers and their wars and alas, no one can feel any confidence in those people supposedly protecting us. From Reuters:Six months ago. Not one troop has been pulled out of Iraq, the troop numbers are exactly the same, no, more were sent for the fake elections there. It is worse than before, the situation more dire this coming summer!

Sept. 2nd:

Oh, The Humanity!A National Guard helicopter finally came to drop them some supplies, and Mayor Ray Nagin advised those inside the convention center to march across a bridge to the other side of the Mississippi River for help.

Federal Emergency Management Director Michael Brown told CNN that federal officials were unaware of the crowds at the convention center until Thursday, despite the fact that city officials had been telling people for days to gather there.

"We just learned about that today, and so I have directed that we have all available resources to get to that convention center to make sure that they have the food and water, the medical care that they need," he said.That bastard, Brown, is trying to rewrite history. Here we are, days after the hurricane, I am already in hysterics, and that clown "just learned" about the situation? HUH? Liar.

NOW The Military Arrives...sheesh!

Sept. 3:
By Dawn's Early Light...DAY SEVEN!
Up at dawn. Sad, disturbing dreams of being a refugee. For a million people, the dream is their waking reallity. So I slog onwards, in my own, much more protected way. Watching and witnessing. I read the Mayor of New Orlean's interview. He was stonewalled from above, you know. Why do the right wingers pretend people have to call for help when it is obvious they are screaming for help? This deliberate cluelessness is why right wingers make hideous leaders. They are so used to filtering out the sounds of humans dying, wailing for help..."Time for her to get on with her life and for me to get on.." as Bush likes to say, his chill out comments now have to be switched to him holding destitute people.

Note that Bush hasn't reamed out his team. He smiles as he coddles the suffering. But he has not one strong word for his own team. Instead, he goes around seeking praise and love from his own cronies who lavish it upon Bubble Boy. From the WP:



MT Slowpoke
This day is the beginning of many cartoons mocking these clowns over their lies and activities.

Sept. 4th:
Shoe LeatherCondi said what the cartoon says. I still can't believe my ears. What a monster.
Sept. 7th:

Baby doll abandoned by a little girl. It was really hard, looking at the dead, so I used that image, less painful. Still hurt.
Media trumpets Bush's numbers are recovering because he hugged handpicked minorities and pretended to care.

First cartoon from when we learned Bush went off to play the guitar and goof around while people were dying at the Super Dome.

Vera, the anonymous corpse left on the street for so many days, a shrine was built around her.

Despite the media trying to cover up Bush's crimes, we bloggers got photos of his hootnanny and this is my cartoon of it.

Cheney was killing things for fun and his wife was buying a multi-million dollar mansion so both were way too busy to help Americans.

Brown explaining why FEMA left the elderly and disabled to die.

I tried to imagine the last hours of the St. Rita patients. Cried too much to make good art work.

This is a picture of Bush hijacking firemen to pose for him while New Orleans burned out of control.

We bloggers got pictures of McCain's birthday bash. He and Bush laughed and sang while thousands were drowning. Neither man gave a hoot.

Fema closed offices. People nearly rioted.

Chertoff and Brownie try to pass the buck. Many lies are told. They can't stop lying.

A frightened Bush hands New Orleans over to the Coast Guard.
One can read all my postings from Sept. 1 to Oct.1, 2005. It is all there. The whole, ugly mess.

Arrest them all.

Desperate To Stop AP Story Showing Bush Lied About Katrina, Bush Releases Tape He Said Was Erased When Congress Asked For It!


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The bad news of Bush and Chertoff's lying about Katrina, pretending they were kept in the dark, the tape clearly shows they knew exactly what was going on and deliberately ignored it all! Worse, Bush told Congress a tape of his phone calls concerning Katrina were "accidently erased." This was a lie since Rosemary is dead! Well, it was a lie. Bush released the tapes to Newsweek.

CLICK HERE TO SEE AP STORY

From Crooks and Liars:
Here's the video of this breaking story. Hat tip David Edwards. FEMA Brown is telling everyone that this is the "BIG ONE!" Bush says in the video that he's "fully prepared." He sure didn't act like he was now did he? Bush is busted for lying about the fact that nobody knew the levee's would possibly have been breached.
Fast work, bloggers! No wonder we are so hated! Heh!

Firedoglake found the latest Newsweek:
Administration and congressional officials said that the administration provided congressional investigators earlier this year with official transcripts of the daily noon FEMA conference calls conducted before, during and after Katrina. But the administration initially told Congress that the transcript for the Aug. 29 call—the call congressional investigators were most curious about, given that it occurred as the hurricane was actually battering the Gulf Coast—did not exist, with officials initially telling Capitol Hill that someone at FEMA or Homeland Security forgot to push the button on a tape recorder.

“Everybody has been looking for that transcript,” former FEMA chief Michael Brown said Wednesday.

A White House official unexpectedly e-mailed the transcript to NEWSWEEK earlier today Wednesday morning—initially without explaining that it was the missing transcript. Two officials familiar with congressional investigations said that the document was turned over to Capitol Hill investigators Tuesday night. Administration officials told both Congress and NEWSWEEK that FEMA officials in Atlanta had taped the Aug. 29 conference call by aiming a video camera at a TV screen rather than following the usual recording procedure. The videotape was subsequently discovered and transcribed.

While the newly discovered transcript does provide new evidence of initial presidential engagement in the Katrina crisis and of conflicting information about the state of New Orleans levees on Aug. 29, it also exposes some contradictions in previous administration explanations about the role of the White House and top officials in handling the crisis.
HAHAHA. I did a cartoon of Bush and Nixon's ghost. Seems the haunting has been in vain, Bush is too stupid to keep his lies straight.

Of course, Bush isn't scare of this Congress. So what if he lied about the transcripts, lied about tape recording stuff? He didn't have a Fawn Hall to take the transcripts out in her boots, he actually had it all the time and in a rage, released them before remembering his lies to Congress?

Time to put this clown under oath. Videotape his testimony and then examine it...at his impeachment. There is no other solution at this point. This poke in Congress' collective eye can't be allowed to slide like his refusal to warn them about the memo warning about bin Laden attacking America which he concealed for many months until forced to cough it up.

Desperate to keep a 'united' (sic) front in the "war on terriers", Congress didn't indite him for treason over that business but now, it is too much, too late. The secret deal with the UAE which involved secret exchanges of $100 million to daddy Bush's account plus a pretend $100 million "for Katrina survivors" who happen to be under eviction tonight, they are being kicked out of quarters and ordered to homeless shelters or on the streets! Yes, Red Cross still has a billion dollars left and not a penny for them!

And look at what is brewing! From AP:

Grass fires raged across Oklahoma on Wednesday, injuring two firefighters, destroying homes and forcing evacuations of schools and businesses, authorities said.

The largest fires burned in Stephens County in southwestern Oklahoma, where two volunteer firefighters suffered severe burns battling a blaze that was at least eight miles long. Their conditions were not immediately available.

"They got trapped and were overcome by fire and severely burned," said Sam Darst, spokesman for the city of Duncan, the county seat.
It is in the 90's down south in the Gulf regions? Huh? Oklahoma is supposed to be very cold this time of year, spring is about to come, but this is summer temps!

The hurricane season this year will most likely dwarf last year's storms. This is a catastrophe of huge proportions, they haven't fixed 30% of the oil and gas rigs and then bloowie! Bam.

Will we have to use Chinese characters for storm name numbers? The alphabet has too few letters!

Nothing has been fixed for the future. Bush is cutting back on National Guard units, the ones we have are still stuck in the deteriorating conditions in Iraq, there are no plans to bring anyone home despite the utter lack of interest on the part of Americans in spending another trillion dollars and 50,000 lives.

Time to erase some tapes. Where's Rosemary Woods?

Bush Lied About Katrina! NOAA Officials Begged Him To Save People Day Before Hurricane Hit!


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Bush's lies about not imagining hurricane Katrina's dangers was a lie! Associated Press has the video tape NOAA made, arguing with him and Chertoff. Both men said they understood what was going to happen and then both ran off to play around, ignoring it all. Arrest both men for manslaughter!

From Associated Press:
In dramatic and sometimes agonizing terms, federal disaster officials warned President Bush and his homeland security chief before Hurricane Katrina struck that the storm could breach levees, risk lives in New Orleans' Superdome and overwhelm rescuers, according to confidential video footage of the briefings.

Bush didn't ask a single question during the final government-wide briefing the day before Katrina struck on Aug. 29 but assured soon-to-be-battered state officials: "We are fully prepared."

Six days of footage and transcripts obtained by The Associated Press show in excruciating detail that while federal officials anticipated the tragedy that unfolded in New Orleans and elsewhere along the Gulf Coast, they were fatally slow to realize they had not mustered enough resources to deal with the unprecedented disaster.
Both men lied about life and death matters. Both men were directly responsible for protecting American citizens and both deliberately ran off elsewhere and pretended ignorance.

Both knew the National Guard and their equipment was in Iraq, still is in Iraq. Both knew about the mass of helpless humanity locked up in the Super Dome. Both of them were esquistely aware that the dikes might break and water go up even to the Super Dome.

They knew everything. Just like 9/11, they were warned, they knew, they goofed off, I include Rumsfeld in this earlier episode of lying about knowledge.

Arrest these criminals. Arrest them now! This is no joke. Many, many people died, thousands are still missing, the death toll is over 3,000 dead and this doesn't include some missing infants. These people, not one of them needed to die. It wasn't as if they wanted to stay in New Orleans. Everyone with vehicles and money to stay in hotels fled instantly. I was agast at how there was no NG going around in big trucks, picking up the elderly, the young, people who had no transportation, people in wheel chairs.

I couldn't believe we would allow America to be totally stripped naked and then left to die. But Bush knew. Chertoff knew. Chertoff slept like a baby the night the hurricane blew in, I was up all night, blogging like crazy, had the most readers ever, people were all over the net, seeking information! But not Chertoff. Not Bush.

The two men most responsible for doing something were snoozing, going to parties, laughing. Ditto Condi. Ditto Cheney, busy killing small, helpless animals up north.

Arrest them all! Good grief, what will it take? More lies? More deaths?

Yes, it will. Unless America wakes up and realizes these men are psychopaths who want us to die.

As I Predicted, The Attack On Shrine In Iraq Was Inside Job


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The fact that the guards of the blown up shrine weren't killed, first, was a clue to who did this crime. Like the Sherlock Holmes story about the stolen racehorse, the dog didn't bark which meant it was an inside job. Ditto this crime.

Reuters UK:
Iraq's national security adviser said on Tuesday four guards protecting the Shi'ite shrine bombed last week were being held as suspects in the attack that pushed the country to the brink of civil war.

"We have two strong leads of their involvement but I don't like to discuss them because it will jeopardise the investigation," Mowaffaq al-Rubaie told Reuters, adding six other people had been arrested over the dawn blast, blamed on al Qaeda militants seeking to sow sectarian violence in Iraq.

Minister of State for National Security Abdul Karim al-Enazy said questions remained over why the assailants, who spent long hours planting the bomb, did not kill any of the eight guards, who were found tied up but unharmed.
Sadr, anyone?

In this article I wrote the same hour as the explosions, I hit the nail on the head.
OK, this explosion happened when the temple was empty. Previous Sunni/Shi'a explosions have happened, using suicide lunatics, during festivals and worship. This one was a sunrise raid. Samarra isn't exactly an open city for any Sunni to enter much less a group of armed men carrying what had to be a very big load of TNT. This bomb blew up a very massive building.
Seems I wasn't the only one to notice this.

Here is my following analysis:
The earliest stories think Sunnis wearing fake uniforms did this but what if the uniforms were what Sadr's guys were wearing? They are the ones who had easy access to these garments and they knew the code words and they had handcuffs, etc. *snip* The Sunni didn't want to end the talks. The American rulers wanted the talks to continue so the Sunni could get some political power. So the list of who wanted these talks to end quickly are very short. At the top of the list is Sadr.
This is time for me to preen my feathers at tad.

Heh. So many people elsewhere mock my analysis of events but when push comes to shove, I remain standing while others fall.

Here is another prediction: arresting Sadr is just as impossible as earlier. He is surrounded by armed troops who will turn his arrest into a blood bath from hell. Already, the fires he lit are merrily burning and won't stop so easily. If we move in our troops to take him, the tattered remains of the British army stuck deep in Shia (Shiite) territory will be killed. Bang. Like that.

This could easily spill into Iranian hands, you know.

The Brits were given the southern corridor because it was supposedly safe. Already, the Brits are under heavy fire and can't leave their strongholds easily because they are being blown up at the same rate as the Americans. And the last division of our Iraqi Qusiling Troops has disinitgrated because Sadr has called in his men who are sworn to slit our throats.

Lovely.

We can bomb all of Iraq to hell and this won't save us. Like Russia burning down Afghanistan and Chechnya, it won't work. Note that Russia has terrible problems with terrorism deep within their own territories, inside Moscow itself, even.

Time to open our ports to the UAE!
