Poll Backfires on Biased CNN Host, Dobbs

Lou Dobbs has lost it. For a brief spell when he was actually listing the corporations who HIRE illegally landed immigrants, I found his show had some merit. He at least seemed to be one of few seeing that all manufacturing jobs had gone overseas or to low cost labor who entered illegally over the Mexican border, but that the CAUSE was the corporations doing the hiring.

His relentless smear campaign against Barack Obama however has turned me right off, which is what I've done with Lou's show. In a recent show Lou spent the better part of the show hammering Obama and trying to make hay out of
nothing, describing Obama's truthful comment that people are "bitter and angry" as "elite."

I was so excited that someone in the media was actually seeing what was happening to American jobs that I found Dobbs quite intriguing - at first.

Lately I am ashamed I ever did find him
even remotely interesting. His obvious hatred of Barack Obama is pretty hard to take.

His obsession with Rev. Wright when the religious right of the USA has the country in a totalitarian stranglehold with torture the norm, and no habeas corpus, is beyond tolerable.
I will no longer watch this program.

While Lou joins the RNC Neo Cons in promoting Clinton ....
The Internet is starting to notice.

i.e. From "the Daily Kos"

Lou Dobbs Tonight Attacks Obama Sat Apr 12, 2008 at 12:06:31 PM PDT

Kitty Pilgrim on Lou Dobbs Tonight decided to air what amounted to a one hour hit piece on Barack Obama over the "bitter voters" comments. I put together a video mash up of some of the commentary that was made over the course of that one hour show so people can watch some of it for themselves. If you don't care for what happened during the April 11th airing, you can contact the show here: Lou Dobbs Tonight.
Apparently the producers and staff of the Lou Dobbs Tonight decided that this was so important that there was not another story that was worth covering for the ENTIRE one hour broadcast.
Updated: Hillary Clinton went on CNN's Ballot Bowl today to weigh in on this, and called Obama's remarkd "elitist".

Indeed while gas prices go through the roof, check out the names of Dobb's sponsors. Then ask yourself what he is distracting from.

Hagee (wooed by John McCain) is a hate filled, religious right minister who has projected hatred against our community for years, and he receives not a mention, while Douglas Coe, Hillary's religious mentor, is a shadowy figure involved in a religion based on "dominionism" that believes all the leaders are chosen by God and they do NOT believe in democracy....and Lou doesn't even mention EITHER on his program. While the prices of gas soar....

Perhaps Mr. Dobbs could take valium from a Big Pharma sponsor and try to find reality sometime soon.

In the meantime, I shan't be worrying about it because I've turned him and CNN off, now getting all my news from the Internet.

Here are some links to some videos from Dobbs latest shows.

You have my sympathies Mr. Dobbs, it is never easy to come face to face with one's own bigotry and shortcomings. I have had to with mine in terms of even listening to your program, after hearing some of the comments and obviously twisted material emanate from your show recently. i.e. Attempting to hold Barack Obama accountable for being on a board with a former Weatherman (who was a Weatherman when Obama was EIGHT is about as honest and above board as the broadcast on immigrants bringing in leprosy).).

You clearly want the Neo Con choice for Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, and it is all too obvious. This poll should alert you to the fact that you are losing your constituency the longer you keep this up. This is not fair and balanced reporting it is subjective nonsense.

You can regain your footing by looking in the mirror and sucking it up, owning up to your own bias. Until then I will not be watching or listening, it is too painful and I've had about enough
"shock and awe" for a lifetime.

Criminal Corporate Media Consistent in Obstructing Justice

While our Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is supposedly a publicly owned body, one could easily argue that there are more corporate commercials than there are on American TV and the public is even more poorly represented with the exception of some remarkable shows like the Fifth Estate.

While our Canadian troops are used as cannon fodder for another American oil invasion (the Unocal Pipeline was being laid in Afghanistan with three months of the American invasion and occupation and the drug crop is the largest in the history of Afghanistan). Just like Columbia the CIA drug crop is thriving.

The coverage of the cash and carry conservatives and the Mulroney bribery by Thyssen Industries is covered with the minimal amount of data released to the public...and little made of the fact that our defense minister went to train at Thyssen while still a young man. Interesting choice a firm involved with the Bush Clan in selling to the Nazis THROUGHOUT WWII.

While American cable TV, and satellite for that matter, report little about what is really happening or not in congress and who is really holding it up. WHY isn't the heat on the rubber stamping, filibustering Grand Old Pedophile party holding the country hostage for the Bush crime family and war profiteers? Why indeed just look up the ownership of media and they are all making a killing...it is only the middle class and poor...those trying to live an honest life who are suffering. The entire country has been sold out by the GOP and their owned media.

While idiot men with talk shows, spew whatever rhetoric they are given to spew and do so devoid of conscience, sense of self or any real integrity or patriotism to the country. Under these cretins "patriotism" has become an aversion to telling the truth but rather to default to blindly wearing a flag pin and bullying everyone else who does not.

American journalism is so far past yellow that it is now BROWN...the nice job Brownie slogan, a natural fit.

Idiots like Chris Mathews, who fawns all over Tom Delay, the sponsor of a SLAVE colony in the Marianas and top money launderer for the GOP, this prancing prevaricator did more to destroy the system of American government than most Bush barbarians.

Perhaps Chris Mathews will have on Gannon, the head male prostitute who worked the White House as a paid news correspondent, hired by Karl Rove. Inquiring minds would like to know why, how, when, who and where the Gannon Goon was doing...while Mathews and the rest of the paid off pack looked the other way???

And GAWD if you want some interesting comments about America look up those made by the right wing zealots behind the latest Christian CRUSADES for corporate America with the blood of the poor and middle class shed for their greed. But do not expect this sad, sorry, obstruction of justice and prosecution of treason press core to help. You will find the information in the U. S. National Archives (but not the revised history taught in schools). Nor will you find the truth in the sad excuse for American media. If this was a remake of "Three Days of the Condor" you would have to have the truth released on the Internet..because the news media is criminally complicit.

Malice in Wonderland

Welcome to Malice in Wonderland, another name I have decided is appropriate for the U.S. media with particular notice going to ABC this week for their Wag the Dog, Swiftboating of Obama and therefore Hillary Clinton, who wound up getting less air time.

Double click on the image to the right to see a photograph of the RNC male prostitute who on numerous occasions stayed overnight at the White House. He was a paid off propagandist who ran a group called Talon News and to whom Karl Rove gave a White House pass and memos revealing the indentity of CIA agent Valerie Plame. The Wag the Dog White House press core has completely ignored the entire story behind Gannon which stretches back to a pedophile ring called Franklingate (associated with Bush Senior and Reagan).

Do you really think these monsters would dispense with habeas corpus, give the president the powers of Mugabe ...then hand the country over to Democrats? Count on them bombing Iran, or faking a false flag black op at home.


Just another Bushite goose stepping off the edge of the earth..

What, you thought it was secular nation...think again. Blackwater reports to the Pope.

Robert Hanssen, Soviet Spy embedded in the FBI, had penetrated the Presidency...and he was OPUS DEI, as are three members of the Supreme Court. Opus Dei is a RADICAL fundamentalist sect notorious for its misogyny
(hatred of women).

While the national press core tries to tell us that "bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" McCain is slightly ahead in the polls. Sure darlin, and Diebold is running the poll, right?

Indeed watching the Pope and the Bush crime syndicate continue to operate aided and abetted by a criminally complicit press core is like watching Malice in Wonderland, no misdeed or malice too large to cover up under a cloak of
good intention.

The ABC debate was something that for some reason I forgot to watch, I smile to myself and call it good personal protection. The injustice coupled with watching those devoid of personal integrity is just so old, so tiresome and so yesterday. I think it is time for a change from the paid off corporate politicians, press core and pedopihile patriarchy inflicted on our respective populaces for years. Lets boot them all out and elect only those who listen and ACT on our behalf, those who do not will be held to account by our newly found collective consciousness and
integrity. That goes for you Diebold and any other stealth voting system that turns the act of voting into national purgatory. If you deliver Pennsylvania for Hillary as you did in New Hampshire, we are watching and like ABC we will shed some light on you. Hopefully this time Malice in Wonderland will find the intestinal fortitude and real patriotic heart to report the truth about rigged voting in the primaries. All of American news media should stand and apologize to the American people and indeed the world for allowing the media to become Malice In Wonderland,

American Nazis Set to "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran"

From WWI to today American corporations have used the American military to advance their needs around the world. Today there are more than 120 American bases in other peoples countries around the world. Their M.O. is thus. First we hear a great deal of saber rattling over (fill in the blank, Philippines, Chile, Nicaragua) the "communists", people like Father Romero who helped the poor and were shot at the altar as were all "leftist leaning" priests as part to the CIA/Catholic Church purge under OPUS DEI rule.

Our media is a disgrace having fallen to the level of a Hanoi Hannah
style propagandist machine largely run by American INTEL (an oxymoron if ever there was one). It is used by corporate America to keep people blindly patriotic, flag waving idiots, not asked to ever consider responsibility for their own actions, because God knows corporate America certainly never takes responsibility for any of their behavior.
And, if caught there is always Dubya to decide to pardon his fellow gang members, just as Poppy pardoned Weinberger...Bushs are not under the law eh.

Nancy Pelosi will not prosecute George Bush as a war criminal because she knew that torture was going on and said nothing. It is on record that she was briefed and kept silent. That makes her complicit in war crimes...but then all congress does is obstruct justice by not prosecuting Bush and Cheney for treason.

For SIXTY l-ong years American TV media has tip toed around a family of Nazis, fascists, operating right in our midst, and using taxpayer money to support their International reign of terror.

From WWI with Samuel Bush and the Merchants of Death (American corporations GM, GE, Ford, and Big Pharma..and their forever constant German partner Thyssen, to Prescott Bush who aided and abetted Hitler so much he was refered to as "Hitler's Angel." To Poppy's Nazi drug running CIA with the bulk of senior officers from the Gestapo smuggled out by the Vatican RAT LINE to join American INTEL.
But don't believe me PLEASE run your own searches. The U. S. National Archives hold the details of Bush profit on Auschwitz, and Bush profiteering with the Nazis throughout WWII.

...It just never stops and here we have the plan to bomb Iran before they leave office:

Senate approves Lieberman resolution on Iran

Senate approves Lieberman resolution on Iran

An amendment by Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman to the Senate Defense Appropriations Bill virtually declares war on Iran. The Senate approved the Lieberman amendment by a vote of 76 to 22. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., was among those voting against the amendment. Dodd referred to the 2002 congressional vote authorizing the use of force that led to President Bush's decision to invade Iraq."We shouldn't repeat our mistakes and enable this president again," Dodd said in a statement.
Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., branded the Lieberman-Kyl measure as Vice President Dick Cheney's "fondest pipe dream."

And isn't it amazing the total lack of focus on the RNC members (and DNC like Lieberman) of congress who gave the executive office such sweeping powers. Why aren't people all over their "elected" representatives...or do they know there is just no point....it is all rigged, from the news to the war to the next election....and has been for sixty long years.
Here is comment on the release of files from the U.S. National Archives confirming Nazis did indeed join the CIA.

CIA - Nazi Conspiracy Exposed by ANDRE DAMON

On June 6, the US national archives released some 27,000 pages of secret records documenting the CIA’s Cold War relations with former German Nazi Party members and officials.The files reveal numerous cases of German Nazis, some clearly guilty of war crimes, receiving funds, weapons and employment from the CIA. They also demonstrate that US intelligence agencies deliberately refrained from disclosing information about the whereabouts of Adolf Eichmann in order to protect Washington’s allies in the post-war West German government headed by Christian Democratic leader Konrad Adenauer. Eichmann, who had sent millions to their deaths while coordinating the Nazis’ “final solution” campaign to exterminate European Jewry, went into hiding in Buenos Aires after the fall of the Third Reich. Utilizing friendly contacts in the Catholic Church and the Peron government in Argentina, Eichmann was able to reside in the South American country for 10 years under the alias of Ricardo Klement.

It is rather amazing to see what American media keeps from the people on a daily basis and has for over sixty years. While chasing Obama or Clinton on some minor expression or misdeed and making it sound tragic, to shamelessly repeating the AP wire and the latest Spears distraction, American media is as criminally complicit in the downfall of American democracy as the Republican Party - and their placed pawns in the Democratic party, like Lieberman, who at least now sits as an Independent, chosen by Diebold to represent their constituency, when not following around McCain like a long, dark shadow called Mossad. Why is it that the last few years both McCain and Lieberman look like they are dead men walking. Their eyes are dead, flat, gone and their voices are a drone. Did someone hit them over the head and install computer chips? McCain is so in lockstep with Bush that his nose (through posterior access) would hit Bush's stomach if Bush stopped suddenly and Hillary would pile up right behind him. Didn't she vote to give Bush the sweeping power to hit Iran too?

To Kill a Mockingbird - Shed Light On Their Lies

In Canada, ignoring our past experience with torture in Somalia, we play with stories from Afghanistan over whether or not we are handing prisoners over to the Afghans for torture.

What about handing them over to the Americans? WE HAVE THE PICTURES of what Americans DO to prisoners...are we going to believe what we can see or what we are told by these monsters. Or, is the torture now done by a military contractor like Blackwater with no military regulations at all?

Americans have invaded and have bases in more than 120 countries in the world. They are the only country in the world to ever use the atom bomb (twice) and currently are in the sixth year of an illegal invasion, immoral "war" and genocide in Iraq. They train the death squads and promote civil war everywhere the CIA goes.
South America is a perfect study, as is Haiti, where like the Marianas, American corporations run SLAVE LABOR colonies...which they plan on bringing home to America, soon.

When I was growing up we stood up to loud mouthed bullies and called them out for the two faced cowards they are. Where are the people of honesty, ethics and courage in America, to stand and tell these lying, loud, cretins to go home, they are NOT representative of anything but division, hatred and self loathing which instead of dealing with they project on the world. Heal yourself Limbaugh and quit dividing people with your racist, sexist, nastiness. I am sorry you are such a bitter, mean spirited individual and look forward to the day when the PUBLIC airwaves are once again used by people who want to lift the country up, not tear it down and divide people against one another.

Once a year the Supreme Court of the USA, (presumably a SECULAR court) attends a special Red Mass, held for the Supreme Court. There are now five Catholics on the Supreme Court of the U.S.A. and at least three (Alito, Scalia, and Thomas) are considered to be members of a right wing fundamentalist Catholic sect called OPUS DEI (the same sect Robert Hansen the most prominent FBI spy in history belonged to)

Indeed this Bush administration has merely exposed decades of corruption perpetrated since WWI by the Bush family and numerous American corporations whose entire morality is based on greed. For example:

Lost History: Reagan-Bush Crime Syndicate

By Robert Parry WASHINGTON --

It should be clear by now that for 12 years, from 1981-1993, the United States was governed by political leaders who merged the power of the state with criminality to a degree possibly unmatched in modern American history. That disturbing reality was underscored again this past month by an exhaustively researched series by Gary Webb in The San Jose Mercury-News. Webb's three-part series, with supporting documentation, traced the "crack" epidemic that devastated Los Angeles and other U.S. cities to massive shipments of cocaine smuggled by elements of the CIA-organized Nicaraguan contra army in the early-to-mid 1980s. Danilo Blandon Reyes, a former contra leader and drug dealer, testified during a recent cocaine trafficking trial in San Diego that the smuggling was given a green light by the late Enrique Bermudez, who commanded the FDN, the largest contra force and the one most closely associated with the CIA. "There is a saying that the ends justify the means," Blandon said. "And that's what Mr. Bermudez told us in Honduras, OK. So we started raising money for the contra revolution." Though Blandon was offered as a U.S. government witness, the Justice Department first obtained a gag order that blocked defense attorneys from inquiring about the CIA's role in dealing dope to the Crips and Bloods and other inner-city gangs.


The Mafia, CIA and George Bush
Pete Brewton

(New York: S.P.I. Books, 1992)
Something very significant happened during our country's savings-and-loan crisis, the greatest financial disaster since the Great Depression. It happened quietly, secretly, without any fanfare and attention. It happened before our very eyes, yet we knew it not.
What we all missed was the massive transfer of wealth from the American taxpayers to a select group of extremely rich, powerful people. What these people had in common -- unknown to the American public -- were their symbiotic relationships to the Mafia and the CIA, and to the two most prominent, powerful politicians from Texas, President George Bush and Senator Lloyd Bentsen.
This small cabal of businessmen realized that the S&Ls were going the way of the dinosaurs. They recognized that S&Ls couldn't survive under rapid inflation and high interest rates. So they decided to exploit the situation for their own purposes, with help from, and rewards for, the Mafia, the CIA and their favorite politicians. They probably figured that the insulation and protection these powerful institutions and individuals conferred upon them, in addition to all the endemic protections with the financial, judicial, political and journalistic systems, made them invulnerable. They were probably right.
For unlike Watergate and Iran-Contra, this was a bipartisan scandal. Republicans like George Bush and James A. Baker III, also encircle Democrats like Jim Wright and Lloyd Bentsen. There was no opposition party to push for an independent investigation. In fact, the same group of wealthy, powerful businessmen, centered in Houston, that encircle
This information enables one to view the 1988 elections, in which not one cross word was ever spoken about the savings-and-loan debacle, in a whole new perspective. It was not merely a fortuitous coincidence that both Bush, the Republican nominee for President, and Bentsen, the Democratic nominee for Vice President, were part of, and beholden to, the same group of Houston businessmen. Even if the Democrats lost that presidential election, as they did, Bentsen could still win re-election to his Senate seat under the so-called "LBJ rule." The Houston boys, as usual, had their bets covered.

Covering Up the Coverage - The American Media's Complicit Failure to Investigate and Report on the Sibel Edmonds Case
1/20/2008 10:52PM

DANIEL ELLSBERG: Covering Up the Coverage - The American Media's Complicit Failure to Investigate and Report on the Sibel Edmonds Case

In an Exclusive BRAD BLOG Op-Ed, the Legendary 'Pentagon Papers' Whistleblower Calls on the Media to Perform Their First Amendment Obligations, on Congressional Leaders to Perform Their Oversight Duty, and for Insider Sources to Come Forward to the American Public...

-- Guest BRAD BLOG Op-Ed by Daniel Ellsberg
For the second time in two weeks, the entire U.S. press has let itself be scooped by Rupert Murdoch's London Sunday Times on a dynamite story of criminal activities by corrupt U.S. officials promoting nuclear proliferation. But there is a worse journalistic sin than being scooped, and that is participating in a cover-up of information that demands urgent attention from the public, the U.S. Congress and the courts.
For the last two weeks --- one could say, for years --- the major American media have been guilty of ignoring entirely the allegations of the courageous and highly credible source Sibel Edmonds, quoted in the London Times on January 6, 2008 in a front-page story that was front-page news in much of the rest of the world but was not reported in a single American newspaper or network. It is up to readers to demand that this culpable silent treatment end.
Just as important, there must be pressure by the public on Congressional committee chairpersons, in particular Representative Henry Waxman and Senator Patrick Leahy. Both have been sitting for years on classified, sworn testimony by Edmonds --- as she revealed in the Times' new story on Sunday --- along with documentation, in their possession, confirming parts of her account. Pressure must be brought for them to hold public hearings to investigate her accusations of widespread criminal activities, over several administrations, that endanger national security. They should call for open testimony under oath by Edmonds --- as she has urged for five years --- and by other FBI officials she has named to them, as cited anonymously in the first Times' story.
It's a measure of how far the New York Times and Washington Post have fallen from their responsibilities...since I gave them the Pentagon Papers in 1971. They printed them then. Would they today?
And this is the time for those who have so far creditably leaked to the Times of London to come forward, accepting personal risks, to offer their testimony --- and new documents --- both to the Congress and to the American press. I would say to them: Don't do what I did and waste months of precious time trying to get Congressional committees to act as they should in the absence of journalistic pressure. Do your best to inform the American public directly, first, through the major American media.
But perhaps today the alternative media and the international press are a necessary precursor even to that. It shouldn't be true, but if it is, it's a measure of how far the New York Times and Washington Post have fallen from their responsibilities to the public, to their profession and to American democracy, since I gave them the Pentagon Papers in 1971. They printed them then. Would they today?

It's impossible to believe that they --- or Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal --- could not have acquired documents and testimony that Murdoch's London paper reports on today. Now the challenge to them is to end their silence on that reporting and do their job.
Otherwise, like the now-Democratic-controlled committees, they are complicit in cover-up. That's not what these institutions should be doing. It's not that "the cover-up is always worse than the crime": that favorite media mantra is itself a cover story. The criminal cover-up by the FBI revealed by Edmonds and the Times' documents is, as often the case, to conceal extremely serious crimes endangering our security, and to protect the official perpetrators. But if "freedom of the press is mainly for the people who own presses," it is time for those owners to stop using that freedom to help conceal official wrongdoing. And the people who own computers should be using them to light a fire under the owners of presses and television networks.
In support of the official cover-up, various American journalists in the last weeks have reportedly received calls from "intelligence sources" hinting that "what Sibel Edmonds stumbled onto" is not a rogue operation by American officials and Congressmen working to their own advantage --- as believed by Edmonds and some other former or active FBI officials --- but a sensitive covert operation authorized at high levels. If there is any truth to that, we clearly have another prize candidate --- giving us, as blowback, the Pakistani Bomb and nuclear sales --- in the category of "worst covert operation in U.S. history," rivaling such contenders as the Bay of Pigs, Iran-Contra, and the secret CIA torture camps abroad.
the complete story is accessible to all :

Daniel Ellsberg is a former American military analyst who sparked a national uproar in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret Pentagon study of government decision-making during the Vietnam War, to The New York Times and other newspapers.
ED NOTE: A short video compilation (appx. 1.5 minutes) of a number of previous public comments made by Ellsberg, in support of Sibel Edmonds, has now been posted here by Edmonds expert Luke Ryland. http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5583

From Auschwitz to America - Gassed By Bush's Big Oil

I stumbled upon an article that peaked my interest and I wanted to share it with as many people as I can. It shows more clearly than anything I have read just how a few individuals from the oil industry have managed to bully an entire nation by controlling the oil resources.
It seems to me it is time to break up these global monopolies and nationalize our oil so that the profits are used to benefit the people of the country, not only the Dick Cheneys and George Bushes. These companies have bribed congress to the extent that taxpayers pay to have the companies move offshore where they pay no tax at all and frequently hire labor below starvation pay and treat them like slaves. i.e. in Burma
Unocal (now owned by Chevron
) supports the existing military regime along with China and France's oil company Total, a rarely mentioned fact when whining about Chinas' human rights record.

by Gunther Schnitzel

Like you, I'm upset and worried about the ever-increasing cost of gasoline. Unlike you, probably, I'm a retired investigative journalist, and instead of wringing my hands in horror and frustration, I've been prowling around to find out why gas is becoming more expensive by the day.Here are some of my findings:

1.If you're a bit old, you may remember the days when there was something called ' gas wars'... competition between gas stations which posted lower prices than others. Why now is every station in town selling gas at the SAME price? COLLUSION! All the companies; Shell, Exxon/Mobil, Texaco, etc. hold secret meetings and agree upon a pump price. Among stations, this may vary a penny or two to pretend there is competition. Price fixing was illegal under all previous administrations, but Bush, Cheney and their oily friends are getting richer and richer by encouraging this monopolistic practice.

2. The oil companies have deliberately not built new refineries for decades in order to create an artificial capacity shortage. Scarcity raises prices.

3. Back to the Bush gang pressure on the car makers to increase gas mileage? No. Taxing obscene guzzling SUV's? No, but leave no national park sacred in the frantic, insatiable oil search. Dig for oil everywhere. Foul beaches with offshore rigs.

4. Modernizing and improving rail transportation as is being done in Europe and the Far East? No. Spend on roads! Bush likes that. More roads, more cars, more trips..and the Bush family gas investment profit soars.

5. Alternate energy sources? wind, geothermal, hydrogen, fuel cells, solar power? Nah! The oily types pretend that they are'researching' these. Bull! They are sinking money into the utterly ridiculous production of ethanol. The corn farmers love the idea. The entire country will have to be one large cornfield to supply the demand. Also, heat is required for the distillation of ethanol. Where does the heat come from? fossil oil or gas! 110 btu's of petroleum energy to make 105 btu's of ethanol energy. A huge, obscene scam.

As long as we're at the mercy of the Bush/Cheney oily types, don't look for a solution; It's only going to get worse as your hard earned dollars flow into the insatiable coffers of Big Oil and it's profiteers.The proposal of a 'gasless day' was stupid. What you didn't put in your tank that day was necessary the next day.How can we fight back? If you have any thoughts, remarks, or even a solution, to this rip-off, let's hear from you below:

From Auschwitz to America the sick, sad, covered up saga of the Bush Nazi crime family has been recorded.
From Samuel Bush and the Merchants of Death in WWI, to Prescott Bush and the funding of Hitler and profiting from Auschwitz to Poppy Bushs' infiltration and control of the CIA to turn it into MURDER INC. an international terrorism unit renown for the School of Americas and the notorious, torturing devices taught there with the death squads trained at Fort Benning and sent back to South America to wreak havoc.

American industry is known worldwide for corruption, slavery, deceit, drug running and torture, thanks largely to the Bush crime syndicate which has operated with relative impunity for decades.

The ONLY thing this Bush has done is manage to expose the entire lot. The entire sordid stench of decades of corruption, treason and deceit.

Oh we've been gassed all right, but we are awake now and coming to take our countries back from these narcissistic psychopaths who operate with impunity from the law.

Let us be filled with the urgency of truth, and the character of Martin Luther King as we stand to to finally face these monsters in our midst and hold them to account before God, country and WE, the People. It is time this over reaching, wag the dog presidency and family was brought to justice, and their treason made clear before the world.

Should we begin by beseiging the Republican AND Democratic members of congress who are not enforcing the law and holding this administration to account? Can we not start a class action suit against congress DEMANDING they do their jobs and enforce the law against Bush and Cheney? More than 80% of America want this administration, this over reaching, criminal administration, brought to justice. How do we make it happen? Any ideas? Feel free to
send them to the links above or comment on this blog. We can do this.

Defining Evil, Before We Fight It

This is part of an interesting article by Noam Chomsky that I wanted to share with as many people as possible. (Pictured to the right the war criminals behind the need for power, greed and constant war.)

Chomsky on World Ownership
Michael Shank January 23, 2008
Editor: John Feffer

Foreign Policy In Focus

(Sold!) Suggested caption for photo at right, please feel free to suggest your own.

Back to the article...

Noam Chomsky is a noted linguist, author, and foreign policy expert. On January 15, Michael Shank interviewed him on the latest developments in U.S. policy toward Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan. In the first part of this two-part interview, Chomsky also discussed how the U.S. government’s belief in its ownership of the world shapes its foreign policy.
Michael Shank: Is the leading Democrats’ policy vis-à-vis Iraq at all different from the Bush administration’s policy?
Noam Chomsky: It’s somewhat different. The situation is very similar to Vietnam. The opposition to the war today in elite sectors, including every viable candidate, is pure cynicism, completely unprincipled: “If we can get away with it, it’s fine. If it costs us too much, it’s bad.” That’s the way the Vietnam opposition was in the elite sectors.


It’s based on two principles. The first principle is: “we totally reject American ideals.” The only people who accept American ideals are Iraqis. The United States totally rejects them. What American ideals? The principles of the Nuremburg decision. The Nuremburg tribunal, which is basically American, expressed high ideals, which we profess. Namely, of all the war crimes, aggression is the supreme international crime, which encompasses within it all of the evil that follows. It’s obvious that the Iraq invasion is a pure case of aggression and therefore, according to our ideals, it encompasses all the evil that follows, like sectarian warfare, al-Qaeda Iraq, Abu Ghraib, and everything else. The chief U.S. Prosecutor Robert Jackson, addressed the tribunal and said, “we should remember that we’re handing these Nazi war criminals a poisoned chalice. If we ever sip from it we must be subject to the same principles or else the whole thing is a farce.” Well, it seems that almost no one in the American elite accepts that or can even understand it. But Iraqis accept it.
The latest study of Iraqi opinion, carried out by the American military, provides an illustration. There is an interesting article about it by Karen DeYoung in the Washington Post. She said the American military is very excited and cheered to see the results of this latest study, which showed that Iraqis have “shared beliefs.” They’re coming together. They’re getting to political reconciliation. Well, what are the shared beliefs? The shared beliefs are that the Americans are responsible for all the horrors that took place in Iraq, as the Nuremberg principles hold, and they should get out. That’s the shared belief. So yes, they accept American principles. But the American government rejects them totally as does elite opinion. And the same is true in Europe, incidentally. That’s point number one.
The second point is that there is a shared assumption here and in the West that we own the world. Unless you accept that assumption, the entire discussion that is taking place is unintelligible. For example, you see a headline in the newspaper, as I saw recently in the Christian Science Monitor, something like “New Study of Foreign Fighters in Iraq.” Who are the foreign fighters in Iraq? Some guy who came in from Saudi Arabia. How about the 160,000 American troops? Well, they’re not foreign fighters in Iraq because we own the world; therefore we can’t be foreign fighters anywhere. Like, if the United States invades Canada, we won’t be foreign. And if anybody resists it, they’re enemy combatants, we send them to Guantanamo.
The same goes for the entire discussion about Iranian interference in Iraq. If you’re looking at this from some rational standpoint, you have to collapse in ridicule. Could there be Allied interference in Vichy France? There can’t be. The country was conquered and it’s under military occupation. And of course we understand that. When the Russians complained about American interference in Afghanistan, we’d laugh. But when we talk about Iranian interference in Iraq, going back to viable political candidates, every single one of them says that this is outrageous – meaning, the Iranians don’t understand that we own the world. So if anybody disrupts any action of ours, no matter what it is, the supreme international crime or anything else, they’re the criminals. And we send them to Guantanamo and they don’t get rights and so on. And the Supreme Court argues about it.
In fact, the same is true almost anywhere you look. Since we own the world, everything we do is necessarily right. It can be too costly and then we don’t like it. Or there could be a couple of bad apples who do the wrong thing like Abu Ghraib. Going back to the Nuremburg tribunal, they did not try the SS men who threw people into the extermination chambers. The people who were tried were the people at the top, like von Ribbentrop, the foreign minister, who was accused of having supported a preemptive war. The Germans invaded Norway to try to preempt a British attack against Germany. By our standards they were totally justified. But Powell is not being tried. He is not going to be sentenced to hanging. ...

They remember history, all over the Third World. The history that Iranians remember is the correct one. The United States has been torturing Iran, without a stop, since 1953. Overthrew the parliamentary government, installed the tyrant Shah Reza Pahlavi, and backed him through horrible torture and everything else. The minute the Shah was overthrown, the United States moved at once to try and overthrow the new regime. The United States turned for support to Saddam Hussein and his attack against Iran, in which hundreds of thousands of people were slaughtered with chemical weapons and so on. The United States continued to support Saddam (including selling Saddam the chemical weapons used on the Kurds).
In 1989, the Iran-Iraq war was all over. George Bush I, supposedly the moderate, invited Iraqi nuclear engineers to the United States for advanced training in weapons production. Iranians don’t forget that. After what they’ve just been through, they should be able to see the total cynicism of what’s happening. Immediately after the war, which the United States basically won for Iraq by breaking the embargo, shooting down Iranian commercial airplanes, and so on, the Iranians were convinced that they couldn’t fight the United States. So they capitulated. Immediately after that the United States imposed harsh sanctions, which continue, they got worse. Now the United States is threatening to attack. This is a violation of the UN charter, if anybody cares, which bars the threat of force. But outlaw states don’t care about things like that.
And it’s a credible threat. Just a couple of weeks ago there was a confrontation in the Gulf. Here the story is: “look how awful the Iranians are.” But suppose Iranian warships were sailing through Massachusetts Bay or the Gulf of Mexico. Would we think that’s fine? But since we own the world of course it’s fine when we do it off their shores. And we’re there for the benefit of the world, no matter what we do, so it’s fine. But Iranians aren’t going to see it that way. They don’t like the threats of destruction. They don’t like the fact that it’s a very credible threat. They’re surrounded on all sides by hostile American forces. They’ve got the American Navy sending combat units to the Gulf.
Take this recent Annapolis meeting about Israel-Palestine. Why did they pick Annapolis? Is that the only meeting place in the Washington area? Well, Iranians presumably notice that Annapolis is the base from which the U.S. Navy is being sent to threaten Iran. You think they can’t see that? American editorial writers and commentators can’t see it, but I’m sure Iranians can.
...Although Olmert just announced again yesterday that Israel is leaving open the option of attacking Iran, if Israel decides that it is a threat. Israel, which is a U.S. client state, is granted a right similar to that of the United States. The United States owns the world and can do anything, and its client states can be regional hegemons. Israel wants to make sure that it dominates the region and therefore can carry out whatever policies it wants to in the occupied territories, invading Lebanon or whatever it happens to be. The one threat that they cannot overcome on their own is Iran. ...
Chomsky: Again, there’s a little bit of history that matters to people outside centers of power. First of all, the United States supported Pakistani military governments ever since Pakistan was created. The worst period was the 1980s, when the Reagan administration strongly supported the Zia ul Haq regime, which was a brutal harsh tyranny and also a deeply Islamic tyranny. So that’s when the madrassas were established, Islamic fundamentalism was introduced, they no longer studied science in schools and things like that, and also when they were developing nuclear weapons.
The Reagan administration pretended that it didn’t know about the nuclear weapons development so that it could get congressional authorization every year for more funding to the ISI, the intelligence agencies, the fundamentalist tyranny and so on. It ended up holding a tiger by the tail. It commonly happens. The Reagan administration also helped create what turned into al-Qaeda in Afghanistan at the same time. It’s all interrelated. And they left Afghanistan in the hands of brutal, vicious, fundamentalist gangsters, like their favorite Gulbuddin Hekmatyar who got his kicks out of throwing acid in the face of women in Kabul who weren’t dressed properly. That’s who Reagan was supporting.

CNN Conspiracy: War Propaganda Disguised as 'News' by CNN
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Despite the writers' strike, CNN is making fake reality shows disguised as discussion and news. This is the epitome of Government-Media Cartel propaganda. Stalin and other despotic warmongers would be proud to have CNN working for them cranking out this nonsense.)

CNN Presents: We Were Warned - Iran Goes Nuclear examines a potential scenario of the nation's response to an Iran with nuclear weapon capabilities. Participating in the scenario are people with real-life situation task force experience at the highest levels of government:Former Acting CIA Director John Mclaughlin in the role as National Security Advisor, Former Nixon and Clinton Sr. Staffer David Gergen in the role as White House Chief of Staff


Stealth comment:

These agencies behave like psychopaths devoid of conscience or empathy, they daily inflict a public diversion from the American terror perpetrated worldwide by American corporations using public funding and the American military to do it.

GE also funded Nazi Germany throughout WWII along with Ford and GM, so we need to take a good long look at who is running our public airwaves and take them back. While we're at it let us nationalize the bloody oil. Our natural resources have been privatized by a bunch of thugs, it is high time we stood up to them and told them it is NOT the economy, stupid, it IS the stupid economy run by these monsters. Why on earth should we be held hostage by these neanderthals - let us hold them to account, now. The world is perfectly capable of evolving if lead by people capable of evolving themselves. It is time those with brains and hearts stopped allowing themselves to be lead by psychopaths.
