Tony Blair Recruiting Kerry in Secret.

US lapdog numero uno - Tony Blair - is said to be secretly recruiting John Kerry, because really, with George gone, Blair is all alone, and therefore fair game in the next UK election. Is Blair hedging his bets, or betting on Kerry? The move is intriguing.

"Tony Blair has sent one of his closest advisers on a secret peace mission to mend relations with John Kerry, the United States presidential challenger, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.

News of the confidential meeting comes as the campaign enters its final 48 hours, with the candidates running neck and neck. Mr Blair is concerned that he will appear isolated if George Bush loses in Tuesday's poll, because of his support for the Iraq war."

150,000 Chinese Troops Deployed to North Korea?

"Hong Kong’s Sunday Morning Post cited an unidentified security source in China as saying five divisions of Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops had been deployed in Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, bordering North Korea, since last month."

Hans Herman Hoppe: Is Democracy a Tragedy of the Commons?

Imagine a world government, democratically elected according to the principle of one-man-one-vote on a worldwide scale. What would the probable outcome of an election be? Most likely, we would get a Chinese-Indian coalition government. And what would this government most likely decide to do in order to satisfy its supporters and be reelected? The government would probably find that the so-called Western world had far too much wealth and the rest of the world, in particular China and India, had far too little, and hence, that a systematic wealth and income redistribution would be called for. . . . more

Wait a minute - How Do We Know It's Really Osama?

I was
surprised to see that the Canadian Media is actually questioning the
authenticity of the latest Osama bin Laden video. How DO we know it's
authentic? Let's make two propositions:

1. The video is authentic, and Old Sammy bin Ladle is trying to sway voters. The punditocracy has mixed views - some say Osama favors Bush because religious fundamentalists work better together, while others say that Osama prefers Kerry. Osama, for the first time has taken credit for 9-11, and even implicates himself with Mohammed Atta, which is very crucial. Asking "who benefits?" is useless, because the only thing this video will do is polarize voters even more. We may not see the outcome of this election until march, 2005, and there will likely be some old-fashioned riots in the streets over the outcome - no matter which way.

2. Osama is still on the Mi6/CIA/Mossad payroll and the timing of the video suggests that, while it may have been taped a long time ago, bin Laden is likely already in US custody. The Video was possibly intercepted by US intelligence and they postponed its delivery to Al-Jazeera to coincide with the US election - it's an October Surprise Psy-op of the greatest magnitude. Worse yet, it may have been made by the CIA to take voter attention away from the US economy. As a concession, Osama gets up and waves his finger, and in return, gets to chill on the beach in Tora Bora until the CIA drags out a prosthetic Osama head on a plate. Let's hope truth isn't stranger than fiction.

Economic Crash Imminent?

Randall Bornemann's footnotes are a gem of wisdom concerning the impending economic correction the US is about to feel. The US is going to tank, but since Osama mentioned that he will attack US Financial assets, he is already the scapegoat for the economic woes about to be felt in the States.

Bin Laden's Pre-Election Appearance

One would think that Bin Laden is a paid asset in the employ of the USA, the way he comes in during clutch moments to consolidate angst and fear. What better way is there to legitimize a failed state than to trot out a bogeyman and hence get out the vote? What perfect timing. Al-Jazeera may have had this for a while and delayed its broadcast, but the video is definitely timed right. After the US Spy-riddled media failed in its 380-ton explosives "October Surprise", this should do the trick nicely.

The video was likely filmed a long time ago, and has been delayed so that Osama, who is likely already in custody, can be trotted out in a staged capture.

True. How true.

There is a surreal quality about visiting the United States in the last days of the presidential campaign. If George W Bush wins, according to a scientist I met, who escaped Nazi-dominated Europe, America will surrender many of its democratic trappings and succumb to its totalitarian impulses. If John Kerry wins, according to most Democrat voters, the only mandate he will have is that he is not Bush." -John Pilger

Be Prepared for Election Terror

5 days to go, and the Bushites need to pull a rabbit out of their hat to prevent Mr. Skulls II from gaining dictatorship.

"If elections are postponed, the Bush Administration will be effectively saying this: "Terrorists have upset the democratic process, and so those of us in charge of the millions of armed government personnel in this country will now run things as we see fit. When we determine that you subjects are capable of self-government, we will then return your sovereignty to you. Of course, we will still use our soldiers to ensure fairness in whatever elections ensue. We will not allow anti-American extremists to intimidate voters, and that's why you will see soldiers at all election booths."" more

It's only going to get worse before it gets worse


The chart above shows the deficit rose to a whopping US$166.2 billion for the second quarter of 2004. Annualized, that's $664.8 billion, or approaching 6.5% of US gross domestic product. As bad as this seems, it will probably get worse before it gets better. We are locked into a set of "daunting arithmetic", says Richard Berner, an economist with Morgan Stanley. He says, "The daunting arithmetic locks the current-account gap into a vicious circle that is hard to escape." Berner cites several reasons he thinks the deficit will get worse:1) Imports of goods, services and income are 40% bigger than exports. And this ratio is on the rise again.2) Higher US interest rates will increase debt payments to foreign debt holders.3) Iraq war and redevelopment.4) Slowdown in global growth, especially in Asia.5) Soaring cost of imported oil.


This is an amazing article. Crooks argues that the price of gold must go up to take attention away from the increased cost of oil. By extension, this implies one ounce of gold buys more US dollars - a devaluation of dollars against gold.

Rep. Ron Paul : US Debt Doubles Every 10 Years

"Federal law limits the amount of debt the U.S. Treasury may carry, and the current amount – a whopping $7.4 trillion – has been reached once again by a spendthrift federal government. Total federal spending, which now exceeds $2 trillion annually, once took more than 100 years to double. Today it doubles in less than a decade, and the rate is accelerating. When President Reagan entered office in 1981 facing a federal debt of $1 trillion that had piled up over the decades, he declared that figure “incomprehensible.” At its present rate of spending, the federal government will soon amass $1 trillion of new debt in just one year. . . .

Debt destroys U.S. sovereignty, because the American economy now depends on the actions of foreign governments. While we brag about our role as world superpower in international affairs, we are in truth the world’s greatest debtor. Like all debtors, we are not truly free. China and other foreign government creditors could in essence wage economic war against us simply by dumping their huge holdings of U.S. dollars, driving the value of those dollars sharply downward and severely damaging our economy."

Current Account Deficit: Unsustainable

The dollar has also been falling out of favour in recent days. This week, it reached its lowest level in eight months on a trade-weighted basis, according to the Fed, and is within a whisker of an all-time low against the euro. Foreign-exchange traders seem to have discovered what everyone else already knew: that America’s huge and growing current-account deficit is unsustainable, and that two things are required to correct it. First, Americans must save more (which will slow growth, perhaps sharply); and second, the dollar needs to fall more than it has done already—perhaps a lot more. - The Economist

Putin: Why not Price Oil in Euros?

"President Vladimir Putin said Thursday Russia could switch its trade in oil from dollars to euros, a move that could have far-reaching repercussions for the global balance of power -- potentially hurting the U.S. dollar and economy and providing a massive boost to the euro zone. "We do not rule out that it is possible." -Moscow Times

The US Dollar enjoys its satus of the world's reserve currency largeley because of the fact that oil is priced in US dollars. To buy oil, the most necessary of all industrial inputs, one has to buy US Dollars. The US therefore enjoys a structural demand for its dollar as a reserve currency. This allows the US to accumulate seignorage revenues, or literally "steal" value on dollar holdings by inflating away the value at a slow and steady rate.

There must be some serious arm-twisting going on in the Kremlin, because just a few weeks after expressing his government's intent to ratify the Kyoto Treaty, Vladimir Putin is rumored to try pricing Russian oil in Euros. It doesn't necessarily make economic sense, as the US Dollar is sliding against the Euro, so the impact of high oil prices is not as bad in Europe as it is in the US. It is a power game.

Vlad is on the verge of literally exacerbating the US dollar's slide into oblivion by striking at the heart of the dollar's hegemonic hold on international reserves. The last evil genius to try this was Saddam Hussein.

Richard Douthwaite
puts it best when he says:

The dollar is the world reserve currency. This gives a huge subsidy to the US economy because if a country wants to hold lots of dollars in reserve they must supply the US with goods and services in return for those dollars. In return the US creates a bit more credit. The more dollars there are circulating outside the US, the more goods and services the US has imported virtually for free. This is how the US manages to run a huge trade deficit year after year without apparently any major economic consequences. No other country can run such a large trade deficit with impunity. It is in effect getting a massive interest-free loan from the rest of the world.

One of Europe's primary objectives, if not the primary objective, of setting up the Euro was to try and get some of this free lunch for Europe. If the Euro became a major reserve currency, or better still replaced the dollar as the major reserve currency, then Europe too could get something for nothing."

The Grand Refusal

"And we are really afraid that the potential loss by Bush may occasion an attack. We are not saying how the attack and the polls might be connected; we are not pointing fingers. But, as Republican strategists debate the possibility like something they themselves are considering for their party's success, we cannot help but wonder: just who, if anyone, is considering/planning/promoting this 'attack?'"

Where Are You Young Lions


Where are those who changed the course
Of modern history?
Who fought for noble causes
And set the black man free.
Who brought the war in Vietnam
‘to a sudden crashing end
America’s youthful men no more
spilling blood upon a foreign shore.
Where are those young lions
Who held the government in check?
By constant vigilance, they yoked the ruler’s neck?

Where are you young lions?
Your country needs your voice.
If you truly are the Boomers
The ones so aptly followed,
It’s time to take another stand
Or are you all so hollow?
There is more to this than mortgages
Retirement and savings funds
The future of our country
Might have to come to guns.

Where are you, young lions?
Those who promised change,
is this your 60’s Utopia?
Peace, love, sharing
for all within our range?

Wake up you young lions
For your country is soon to fall.
Heed the words of Justice,
Liberty and Truth for all.
Many of you young lions
Are now toothless
And many of you are gray,
DO not sit by idly
As your country slips away.

I pray to God for salvation
And that you are not too old to fight
Your country is being stolen
A bit more every night.

Wake up you young lions
and rally to the cause
Of taking back our country
From those who kill our laws.
Or are you like the others?
All equally to blame.
Many of your age group
Have caused this country shame.

Is this what you envisioned?
Is this what you had planned?
Is it all just simply greed
and owning other’s lands?

Come on again young lions,
Your country needs your roar.
Help us young lions,
Heed your country’s call.

The Coming Post-Election Chaos

According to Lenny Bloom and Sherman Skolnick, the goal of this election is to bypass the electoral process and install a fascist governing panel. John W. Dean, former Presidential legal counsel argues that the election could be tied up in lawsuits and we would not know the outcome for months or maybe even years. This would mark the dissolution of the US as a legitimate state and would plunge it into Civil war.

The Nightmare Scenario: An Election Up in the Air For Months

It may be days or weeks, if not months, before we know the final results of this presidential election. And given the Republican control of the government, if Karl Rove is on the losing side, it could be years: He will take every issue (if he is losing) to its ultimate appeal in every state he can.

The cost of such litigation will be great - with the capital of citizens' trust in their government, and its election processes, sinking along with the nation's (if not the world's) financial markets, which loathe uncertainty. After Bush v. Gore, is there any doubt how the high Court would resolve another round? This time, though, the Court, too, will pay more dearly. With persuasive power as its only source of authority, the Court's power will diminish as the American people's cynicism skyrockets.

It does not seem to trouble either Rove or Bush that they are moving us toward a Twenty-first Century civil war -- and that, once again, Southern conservatism is at its core. Only a miracle, it strikes me, can prevent this election from descending into post-election chaos. But given the alternatives, a miracle is what I am hoping for.

From Ethernet:

None of the organizations that are monitoring the voting precincts has authority to void the electoral process. However, since there are legitimate concerns about the authenticity of electoral results, protests might result in violence that could trigger the martial law mandates that are already in place. An emergency of this sort might involve suspension of the Constitution and the seizure of dictatorial powers.

Karl Marx liked Democracy for this very reason. In Germany, gridlock at the Reichstag contributed to Hitler’s rise to power. The American congress is in a similar situation with the two major parties almost evenly divided. With the Constitution already eased out of the picture our entire government is controlled by a tiny number of votes and the rabid adherents to the two parties unrestrained by the Constitution will do almost anything to gain power.

The farcical nature of attempting to select a righteous government by allowing universal suffrage in a nation with a 30 percent illiteracy rate is apparently lost on all of the media and most of our citizens. It is nevertheless a recipe for anarchy and we may get just that.

Larry Abraham raises the question of the consequences of another terrorist attack occurring simultaneously resulting in "a nightmare of unfathomable consequences and chaos".

From the Independent:

The whole country - never mind the woefully inadequate electoral system - is now living on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Little wonder, then, if many are predicting some sort of collapse on 2 November. "Only a miracle, it strikes me, can prevent this election from descending into post-election chaos," John Dean, the Watergate-era White House counsel who knows a thing or two about electoral dirty tricks, wrote last week.

The US Media is set to declare this election uncertain and foment chaos in order to justify a martial police state. Psy-ops will be done to foment this chaos at the polls as special agents seek to drive the electorate into a schitzophrenic rage.

U.S. Societal Polarizations Are Being Gradually Increased

An even more fantastic deployment of scalar terrorism is the use of scalar weapons in "psychoenergetics" mode, the mode and wave patterns that affect the human minds in the targeted interference zone. This becomes a true "enemy within," for the weapons are operating within our own minds themselves, inducing thought forms and feelings, without the people themselves being aware of the true cause. The psychoenergetics aspect of the scalar terrorists is to create polarization within the targeted population, to cause neighbor to fight with neighbor creating increasing enmity, chaos and division. Why fight us if they can make us fight each other? Why declare a war if they can bring about a civil war and make us kill each other?

Chinese Communist Takeover of Canada

Last week the Globe & Mail ran a head story on the Noranda takeover by Chinese-owned Minmetals Corp. This signals an impending wave of Chinese foreign investment in Canada - the Oil Sands in particular. State-owned Chinese oil companies are considering a huge investment in Alberta's oil sands.


"Given our rapid economic growth, we're facing an acute shortage of natural resources," the Foreign Minister told The Globe.

"No matter how plentiful our natural resources, when you divide them by our population of 1.3 billion, the figure will be very small," he said.

"The Chinese government is encouraging Chinese enterprises to make investments in Canada, particularly in the field of resources exploitation."

It is the first public comment on the Noranda issue by a senior Chinese leader since the controversy over the planned takeover erupted last month.

Though the minister did not identify any specific targets for future Chinese buyers, it is known that two of China's biggest state-controlled oil companies are considering major investments in Alberta's oil sands. In other potential billion-dollar deals, Chinese oil and mining companies are looking at lucrative assets held by Canadian companies in Ecuador and Mongolia.

The proposed takeover of Noranda by state-owned China Minmetals Corp. has shocked many Canadian observers, but it is a potent symbol of China's sudden emergence as a powerful global investor and a massive consumer of commodities. China is hungry for supplies and expertise in the natural resources sector, and Canada has both.

The Noranda takeover -- which is expected to be finalized by mid-November, becoming the biggest overseas acquisition by a Chinese corporation -- has sparked questions by several MPs who have raised human-rights concerns. Some say the deal should be blocked because of reports that China Minmetals has been linked to the use of forced labour in the Chinese prison gulag."

The logic here is ludicrous. If China wants Canadian resources, it doesn't have to buy Canadian companies to do that. It can buy products in the market. No,no,no. China wants to check-mate US Oil interests in the Oil Sands because it is locked out of Midlle-East Oil. That pipeline from Iraq to China seems a little slow in coming.

The Operative word here is gulag - now that the Alberta Government has a memo of understanding with respect to the import of foreign workers, Union work in Alberta is likely to go the way of the dodo.


The formal name of the agreement is Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) for the Entry of Temporary Foreign Workers for Projects in the Alberta Oilsands.

Which employers will benefit from this agreement?
The largest employers and developers of the Fort McMurray oil sands projects, who anticipate needing to hire foreign workers to meet investment and project development requirements, will be able to use the streamlined process.

What is Alberta's labour force strategy?
Alberta's labour force strategy, Prepared for Growth highlights a three-pronged approach to meeting Alberta's skilled labour needs:

I thought Alberta was violating Human Rights through mandatory Piss-testing of employees. Turns out, as the Chinese Government says, it's only the beginning.

Why are some Christians so Bloodthirsty?

Recently a Christian from Australia wrote to ask, "Why are American Christians so bloodthirsty? Why do they support the war in Iraq, no matter how many innocent people are made to suffer? We just don't understand why they're willing to kill other people so that they can feel more safe – it's so selfish!"
She's right, and she's wrong. She's right about the fact that many Christians in America will blindly support whichever war their president promotes, with the assumption that his much-advertised praying guarantees us that God approves of all those bombs and missiles, and even the inevitable collateral damage.

October Surprise Imminent?

We're into the homestretch of October, just before the election, and, as predicted, the US dollar is getting thumped in the forex markets. Moreover, the net is going crazy with speculation concerning what pre-election surprise, or October Surprise, the Bush Administration will come up with to galvanize voters - that's if he doesn;t cancel the election altogether and install a fascist governing panel. (Remember that Shadow Government he had set up with Powell, Cheney and Rummy in their underground bunker?).

"The Iran attack plan was reportedly drawn up after internal polling indicated that if the Bush administration launched a so-called anti-terrorist attack on Iran some two weeks before the election, Bush would be assured of a landslide win against Kerry. Reports of a pre-emptive strike on Iran come amid concerns by a number of political observers that the Bush administration would concoct an "October Surprise" to influence the outcome of the presidential election."

George W Kerry

George W Kerry

In a recent issue of Foreign Policy, Moises Naim
argues that John Kerry will be virtually
indistinguishable from George Bush, should Kerry win
the election. Geez, you don't need to be a rocket
scientist to figure that out. George Bush and John
Kerry are about as indistinguishable as the ties they
wore in the 3rd debate. I mean, they are both Yalies,
both Skully-Bastards and both are products of the very
Military-Industrial Complex that Eisenhower warned the
USA of.

"They" own both sides of this debate and have chosen
virtually identical candidates to run in the election.
The whole premise of the US election is that voters
actually have a choice; they don't, because the two
options are exogenously determined by the money power.
Keeping the populace divided over Left/Right or
Dems/GOP keeps them from questioning the whole
assumption underlying the election. Nobody asks: "Do
we really have a choice?". As previously stated, it's
like choosing between getting raped and getting raped
right now. Either way, you are screwed, since there IS
NO choice. And that's besides the fact that eggs of
embedded code in the Deibold voting machines could
steal the election. Without the hanging chads, we
won't necessarily know WHO stole the election this
time around.

As Moises states:

"All recent U.S. presidents have learned the hard way
that, despite their immense power, they remain at the
mercy of uncontrollable global forces that render
their personal views and campaign promises largely

Whichever candidate the Deibold voting machines pick
for the USA, one thing is clear: the selected
candidate will act on behalf of those who profit from
the War/Finance collective. The term "uncontrolable
global forces" implies a dynamic of economic
determinism. The US needs to maintain faith in its
debt pyramid, which is essentially backed by Military
force. If its military appears to falter and stumble,
bond holders are wary about the repayment of their
bonds and refuse to buy them. This is why there must
be another manufactured crisis to justify Perpetual
War. Again the US can't raise interest rates, as this
would increase the cost of borrowing. By corrolary, it
cannot devalue the debt by allowing oil-induced
inflation to erode the value of outstanding debt, or
can it?

It can't do that either, because inflation will
further devalue the Dollar and raise the cost of
imports, leaving US consumers with even less
disposable income from which to service their
mortgages. When the ability to pay falls below the
debt servicing requirement, bankruptcy ensues.
Inflation constitutes an unstable equilibrium, as
people will then demand further tax cuts, causing the
spiral to continue.

A government cannot finance expeditures by debt
forever. If taxes are low today in relation to
expenditures, then this categorically implies high
distortionary taxes in the future in combination with
budget cuts. A violation of this identity implies a
bond default. A bond purchaser will not buy a bond if
it thinks that it will not be repaid, so faith in the
State's ability to raise revenues through taxation
must be maintained.

The US is a strong state backed by the most impressive
military apparatus in the world, and if it cannot
finance the war indefinitely, then it will have to
find someone who can. Since the US is a net importer
of goods, it is literally printing money to purchase
goods from abroad: those funds cannot find
corresponding US goods in foreign nations apart from
the US dollar being used as a reserve currency for
other monies. Foreign nations can watch as the value
of their dollar holdings erode through inflation
(which accrues seignorage to the US), or they can buy
bonds and earn value: what's the economic choice here?
To buy bonds. In this way, the US is able to literally
force other nations to finance it, but they still
constitute an uncontrollable economic force exogenous
to the election altogether.

The Dollar is tanking in relation to Oil, but at 55
dollars a barrel, in real terms, it's nowhere near the
cost of oil in the 70's. The media propagates the myth
of Peak Oil as a Red Herring, as it distracts from
those who profit from war the most: those who finance

Bush bulge Pics Reveal: It's NOT a Transmitter

Bush, due to all the antipsychotic drugs (he is also rumored to have AIDS from his Skull & Bones lover, Victor Ashe, according to Sherman Skolnick) is at risk of sudden cardiac arrest and must wear a full-time defibrillator in order to keep his heart in its optimal range. The whole idea that bush was wired is a red herring.remember that Kennedy and Reagan both had health issues that were hidden from the public. Coincidentally, they were Zero year presidents, therefore they were subject tot he Zero Curse.It might be kicking in for George too.

Us Bond Market Needs Terror Attack

Why is the US dollar in freefall against Oil? Why did the US hit a Debt limit?Well, It's over issuing debt that nobody wants to use their US dollars to purchase. Therefore, there's a glut of US dollars in relation to the oil supply.How to get people to buy bonds? Increase the interest rate (the payoff). Sell 1000 dollar bonds for 900 dollars rather than 990 dollars.The purchasers of bonds (banks in Tokyo, Zurich, London) need a reason to buy US debt to finance the war - a terror attack - interest rate hike. The US cannot afford to pay more to borrow more, so the interest rate is a constraint.Therefore, if the US raises interest rates before the election (or in the short run) there will be no Terror attack. If interest rates decline or stay artificially low, inflation occurs, which will devalue the holdings of US dollars and outstanding debt. Nobody want to buy debt in that case, and the cost of war skyrockets.Oil is increasingly expaensive in the US, but not as bad in Canada or the EU.Remember also that low taxes now and high government spending imply high taxes and low spending in the future to repay the debt. A government that does not recognize this is about to default.

Anyone Can Become President of the USA?

As Michael Shore asks,


"true democracy is not a two party system. It is many parties with
different ideas that represent the will of the People, not the will of
a few very rich individuals and the corporations that they own. Why
weren’t members from other political parties, who have candidates
running for the Presidency, allowed to participate in the Presidential

Yeah, nice democracy USA. Real nice. What a joke.

Globe & Mail

Equally central to this reality is Yale itself, the breeding ground of all U.S. presidents since 1988. Here, however, pride in election outcomes far outweighs concern with civic discourse. At Beijing University in 2001, Mr. Levin could boast that "four of the last six presidents of the United States have Yale degrees." To celebrate its 300th anniversary, Yale brought back to campus all three Yale succession presidents: Mr. Bush's father, George H.W. Bush; Bill Clinton; and Mr. Bush.

Yale's pride seems boundless. This year, the Yale community seemed more pleased than puzzled as Yale grads Howard Dean, Joseph Lieberman and Mr. Kerry dominated the Democratic primaries, with Hillary Clinton waiting in the wings. When Mr. Kerry won the nomination, Yale accepted without demur that both sides of America's two-party system were now led by members of Skull and Bones, the Yale-based secret society that Mr. Bush and Mr. Kerry insisted on national television is too secret to talk about.

The Dumbing Down of America

As Eric Margolis of the SUN chain of newspapers writes:

"Either the self-proclaimed "war president" and his men committed the worst set of blunders overseas since Vietnam, or they lied the nation into an imperial war to grab oil and boost Israel's fortunes.

Republicans don't care. Amazingly, a recent CNN/USA Today poll showed 62% of Republicans still believe Iraq was behind 9/11. This is after a flood of contrary evidence and Duelfer's report."

Can Americans be THIS stupid? I mean, Kerry/Edwards is probably worse than Bush, but why not look outside the Republicrat/Demoblican paradigm?

Mike Wasdin has the answer:

" To be considered a good American today, one must pledge their undying allegiance to the State. We must never question authority, because the State knows better than we do. You are either with us, or against us. Just wave the flag and shut the fuck up! Dissent is no longer an option, for you will be labeled as a traitor, terrorist, and un-American.
The sheep are herd oriented, and cannot think outside the box. Not being capable of perceptual or intellectual thought, they are only capable of thinking in terms of tribal relations. If you are not a Republican, then you must be a Democrat. The idea that there may be a different line of thought is foreign and confusing to them."

In another article he writes:

" A peculiar thing happened to me on my road to freedom: I hit a blockade. I realized that we had become an Orwellian society where the sheep are more than happy to give up their rights if Big Brother can guarantee their safety. I could not believe the pathetic declarations that the sheep had now begun to recite: “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about.” “I am willing to give up some freedom for security.” What a pathetic people we have become! We have sacrificed essential freedom for security and we now had neither."

Vaccine Shortage a Psy-Op?

One reader at Rumor Mill News had a superb insight into the flu vaccine mess: It's designed to create demand and panic for vaccines. The Two companies who manufacture the vaccine are Chiron and Aventis. Chiron is based in California but operated a plant in the Uk, which was shut down by the British authorities.

"Now that we've been presented with the "Problem", we are now witnessing the public's "Reaction". Citizens are clamoring for and demanding action on this issue. People in the long lines are being interviewed and are complaining that in our country....in this day and age...there is no excuse for a vaccine shortage and old people standing in long lines. It's just not American. We should all have access to this "appropriate" health care. It is a divine right. If and when adequate numbers of vaccines become available, it will make our government and health officials look like infallible heroes. Our government only wants the best for us.

Pope Secretly fears Bush is Antichrist

Wayne Madsen, a writer for Cournterpunch.org suggested back in 2003 that George W. Bush may be the Antichrist, and has suggested that the Pope secretly believes this.

"Well-informed sources close to the Vatican report that Pope John Paul II is growing increasingly concerned about Bush's ultimate intentions. The Pope has had experience with Bush's death fetish. Bush ignored the Pope's plea to spare the life of Karla Faye Tucker. . .

Bush's blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs, and his constant references to "evil doers," in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations - the anti-Christ. People close to the Pope claim that amid these concerns, the Pontiff wishes he was younger and in better health to confront the possibility that Bush may represent the person prophesized in Revelations."

But since then, Dubya has had an audience with the Pope, so perhaps the Pontiff has changed his mind.

Brainwashing Victims Receive Cash

Times Online

HUNDREDS of mentally ill patients who were subjected to barbaric CIA-funded brainwashing experiments by a Scottish doctor could be entitled to compensation following a landmark court ruling.

Doctor Ewan Cameron, who became one of the world’s leading psychiatrists, developed techniques used by Nazi scientists to wipe out the existing personalities of people in his care.

Cameron, who graduated from Glasgow University, was recruited by the CIA during the cold war while working at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

He carried out mind-control experiments using drugs such as LSD on hundreds of patients, but only 77 of them were awarded compensation.

Now a landmark ruling by a Federal Court judge in Montreal will allow more than 250 former patients, whose claims were rejected, to seek compensation.

FDA Approves RFID Chip for Implantation

From the SFGate

Opponents argue the medical benefits are marginal, at best. Patients can
already wear bracelets that alert doctors to their identities and special
medical needs, and few medical errors are actually caused by patients being misidentified, they said. But the potential for abuse is great, they say. Over the long haul, any place where there's a surveillance camera today, five or 10 years from now will have these ... readers. You'll walk into a 7- Eleven, and they'll take your picture and scan your number," said Richard Smith, an Internet security and privacy consultant in Boston. "If we start carrying these tags, it makes a perfect way, either by private security companies or the government, to keep track of us." Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington, D.C., said he was concerned that people might be forced to get the implants."

"The secret genocide has been well thought through as a means to keep you and the mass population of the nation from discovering the truth which is millions have been killed and millions are being killed using the most obviously attacked by the electronic device described earlier. The method of hiding something so insidious being done out in the open is pure evil genius. They attack many many people out in the open to promote several agendas. One and the primary agenda is to demonstrate what they want people to understand are the symptoms of being bombarded with electronic weapons, they have such people being attacked out in the open with such extraordinary symptoms that the massive population will see those symptoms as a definition of an attack and never make the connection that the very common and non serious seemingly everyday symptoms they are experiencing are not at all related to such attacks, but they are and seriously so. The second agenda is to cause fear not in the massive population who are being kept from the truth because its under " National Security " regulations to enforce non reporting but to put deep fear into all authorities that such activity can and will go on despite even their authoritarian complaint which is stifled and generates an aura and reality of the criminals being untouchable."

The Brownshirting of America

An interesting article from Counterpunch:


"Bush's conservative supporters want no debate. They want no facts, no analysis. They want to denounce and to demonize the enemies that the Hannitys, Limbaughs, and Savages of talk radio assure them are everywhere at work destroying their great and noble country.

I remember when conservatives favored restraint in foreign policy and wished to limit government power in order to protect civil liberties. Today's young conservatives are Jacobins determined to use government power to impose their will at home and abroad.

Where did such "conservatives" come from?"

Bush Skipped Annual Physical Exam This Year

Perhaps the defibrillator theory cannot be ruled out, as Bush has postponed his annual check-up with the doctor. Could it be that Bush has a heart condition? Maybe he's so hopped up on anti-psychotic drugs that he's at risk for Sudden Cardiac Death, and the defibrillator pack is insurance against him croaking mid-debate. Bush has displayed evidence of having some mental illness or condition due to heave drug abuse, so one can't rule out that possibility.

""His days in power shall be cut short. And for every twenty winters following, the days in power of the great chief which they shall select shall be cut short. Our people shall not be the instrument to shorten their time. Either the Great Spirit shall shorten their days or their own people shall shoot them."

Is Tecumseh's Curse hitting him already? If he died in office, and then Cheney died too, then that would leave us with Arnie.

Media Needs to Check out Bush's Bulge

Whether or not that pervy twinkle in Dubya's eye is related to another bulge, I don't wanna know. He sure did love to spank that podium in the 3rd debate like he was the dictator of the Bannanna Republic. The Bush Bulge has re-surfaced in the third debate, and the mainstream media is treating it as lunatic fringe stuff.

But here's an interesting theory: It's not a transmitter, but a defibrillator.


The LifeVest is a new treatment option for patients who are at high risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) or sudden cardiac death (SCD). Potential patient groups who may benefit from the LifeVest technology include:

Seymour Hersh: Americans Slaughtering Iraqis


"They were a couple weeks together, they knew each other. So orders came down from the generals in Baghdad, we want to clear the village, like in Samarra. And as he told the story, another platoon from his company came and executed all the guards, as his people were screaming, stop.

And he said they just shot them one by one. He went nuts, and his soldiers went nuts. And he's hysterical. He's totally hysterical. And he went to the captain. He was a lieutenant, he went to the company captain. And the company captain said, "No, you don't understand. That's a kill. We got thirty-six insurgents."

Jerry Golden Website Destroyed

Jerry Golden's website has been completely obliterated by a sophisticated hack. Golden's explosive essay called "The Roots of Evil in Jerusalem" was in my mind the most intense article I had ever read. The last article he had written detailed a very counter-intuitive process: Islam is the fastest-growing minority group in the West and many Jews are engaged in a mass exodus to Israel, he believes, as a result of their persecution:

The takeover of Europe and the World is underway.

The Moslem take over of Europe has been under way for the past half century; today France alone now has a reported 6 million Moslems that is about 10% of the total population. There are around 600,000 Jews living in France and they are living in fear of their lives. I know many French Jews and today the Jewish men are frightened to even wear their Kippah (Yarmulke) in public for fear of being attacked. Jewish Synagogues are being burnt and Jews are being beaten in public places with little to no interference from the police. Much like that of the days leading up to the Second World War and the Holocaust. French Jews by the thousands are buying apartments in Israel to be sure they have a place to come.

The French government has begun reacting to the threat of Islam taking over their country. For example they have banned the Moslem women from wearing headscarves and that has resulted in French citizens being kidnapped in Iraq. And out of fear the French government has opposed Turkey from being allowed into the EU for fear of an over run of Turkish Moslems throughout Europe.

Jung and Tyranny

"Whenever justice is uncertain and police spying and terror are at work, human beings fall into isolation, which, of course, is the aim and purpose of the dictator state, since it is based on the greatest possible accumulation of depotentiated social units."

"Only relatively few individuals can be expected to be capable of such an achievement, and they are not the political but the moral leaders of mankind.

…the State is his servant and not his master.

Thanks to industrialization, large portions of the population were uprooted and were herded together in large centres. This new form of existence – with its mass psychology and social dependence on the fluctuation of markets and wages – produced an individual who was unstable, insecure, and suggestible.

…the destruction of the individual and the increase of the fiction we call the State."

-- Carl Gustav Jung

IMC Server Seizure Related to Bush Blunder?

This ought to send coincidence theorists into a tizzy: the IMC seizure by the FBI might be directly related to them spreading the Bush is Wired story.

"On Oct. 7th, just days after this remarkable recording was posted on the New York Indymedia website, the UK servers which supported 20 Indymedia websites in the US were seized by intelligence services, effectively shutting down these valuable independent news sources. Is this just another amazing coincidence? BBC reported the shocking news of these seizures on Oct. 11th, stating that the FBI had seized them, though an FBI spokesman denied this. Widely reported by major media in Britain, this startling news continues to go virtually unreported in the mainstream American media. If you want a clear example of how our freedom of speech is being eroded, I highly recommend reading this BBC article at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3732718.stm"

One Vote, No Choice

It's Skulls vs Bones in the great Master-Debate! Voting this election is like choosing between getting raped now, or getting raped right now. The point is: there is no difference between the two of these numbSkulls, and casting a vote legitimizes a system that has failed. Withdraw your consent America. You know what the problem with these Diebold voting machines is? It's likely going to be impossible to deface the ballot and thereby register your dissent and refusal to legitimize a system that has failed you.

Round 3!

..Developing...Quite Boring...Repetitive...

Satellite Data Shows: Red China the Worst Polluter

The New Scientist has published a really cool photograph of N02 emissions worldwide.

The map, based on 18 months’ worth of satellite data, shows very high levels of NO2 above major European and North American cities and across much of north-east China. South-east Asia and Africa also have raised concentrations of the gas due to their burning of vegetation.

 The image reveals pollution hotspots above cities and even shipping lanes. CLICK for full view (Image: University of Heidelberg)
The image reveals pollution hotspots above cities and even shipping lanes. CLICK for full view (Image: University of Heidelberg)

But perhaps more surprising are the oceans. “Ship tracks are visible in some locations,” says Steffen Beirle, one of the research team at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. “Look at the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean between the southern tip of India and Indonesia.”

Although NO2 is formed naturally by lightning and by microbes in the ground, it is also released into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels by power plants, heavy industry and vehicles. Large quantities of the gas can cause respiratory problems and lung damage, and can also contribute to harmful ozone forming near ground level.

If you look closely, you can see the pollution from the Tar Sands in Fort McMurray Alberta doesn't hold a candle to what the Chinese are doing.

Jew-Baiting the Rapture

This website says that the Rapture will happen October 17th:

2004-OCT-17: Clay Cantrell computes the date of the Rapture from size of Noah's Ark with particular attention to the precise location of the "escape window" in the top of the vessel.

This one says that we can use Jews as bait:

Whatever you do, do not invite the Christian Zionist into your house. Because as much as he claims to love you and all of your fellow tribesmen, it's a different kind of love than you might expect. More like the love that the Manson Family had for Sharon Tate and her party guests.

Flanagan: The Shadow Behind Harper

No Doubt about it: Edmonton may be the government center of Alberta (and would not exist apart from that fact) but Calgary and its hallowed halls of Big Oil is the official power center of the province. Moreover, there is a stark contrast between Political Science departments at the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary. Edmonton has pinko- commies whereas Calgary has raging libertarians.

Not that the alternatives such as Moneybags Martin or Jack "Gay pride moustache" Layton are any better, this article from Walrus Magazine has a few choice words for Harper and the evil Rasputin Academic named Tom Flanagan, who the left argue manipulates Harper like Cheney manipulates Bush - from behind the scenes.


"Little is know about the shadowy, sixty-year-old professor who is staying on Harper's post-election payroll as a senior advisor from Calgary. Flanagan declined to be quoted in this story. In Ottawa, where he has refused to interviews for the last three years, some journalists regard him as a modern-day Rasputin manipulating a leader sixteen years his junior. But in Calgary, one of his former students, Ezra Levant, publisher of the eight-month-old Western Standard magazine, cautions against generational cliche. These days, Levant sees Flanagan and Harper more as "symbiotic partners." But he does not disagree with a Globe and Mail report that once referred to Flanagan as the original godfather of the city's conservative intellectual mafia. "I call him Don Tomaso," Levant says, "He is the master strategist, the godfather -- even of Harper.. . . (more)"

What's especially creepy is the fact that Flanagan's buddy, Barry Cooper, " is a member of the Bohemian Club, a fraternity of Republican movers and shakers who fork out a $10,000 initiation fee to gather every year in the redwoods outside San Francisco for a policy version of summer camp. In a crowd that has included Henry Kissinger and Vice-President Dick Cheney, Cooper gives a regular talk on Canadian politics -- one reason the Calgary School's views many hold more sway in Washington than Ottawa."

Now that's interesting. Save for a reference in this article, we have in Alberta, at a Political Science Department, a Bohemia Grovesman.

Nader Comments on Skull & Bones

It Seems Ralph Nader has been listening to Lenny Bloom's Cloak and Dagger Show.

High Street, New Haven, CT—October 6, 2004

New Haven, CT: George W. Bush and John Kerry have been members of the Yale secret society – Skull and Bones – since the late 60s. Hundreds of Bonesmen are in powerful positions at the top echelons of government and business. They are sworn to secrecy throughout their lives, bound together for life, says Yale’s William Sloane Coffin. Skull and Bones alumni have a common drive to get their members into “positions of power” and to have those members hire other members into similar positions of power, says Alexandra Robbins, author of the book, Secrets of the Tomb, and herself a member of another secret society at Yale.

Initiation rituals involve morbid admission of personal sexual experiences and coerced displays of sophomoric masochism and mystical mumbo jumbo, hooded robes and members carrying skulls and bombs according to a remote video of one recent ceremony. . . (more)

Psychoanalysis of Psychos Bush and Cheney

Edwards and his Kerry-messiah complex are bad enough, but this Etherzone columnist maintains he has come across a psychoanalysis of Bush and Cheney that paints Cheney as a Raging Psycho, and Bush as a Mind-Controlled Drone.

On Cheney:

"I feel sorry for Edwards---someone who sat across a small table from a killer, who sits there glaring at him. One can provoke such an individual by standing up to him as one stands up to a bully; by countering his assertions and lies, but you have to be prepared for the horrible rage that will explode outward. I guess he wasn't prepared for that. Regardless, more people will come away terrified of Dick Cheney."

If you watched Cheney's eyes during the debate you got the meaning of what this psychiatrist said."

On Dubya:

"The President clearly suffers from a severe paranoia that causes him to greatly fear situations in which he is exposed to people hostile to his delusional viewpoints. Bush entered the debate in his own world, his own psychological shell. To make it through the debate he essentially blotted out all reality, REACTING FROM SOME KIND OF PROGRAMMED RESPONSE TO PROMPTS. WHEN THE EXPECTED PROMPTS DID NOT OCCUR HE COULD NOT FORMULATE RESPONSES AND WAS REDUCED TO MUMBLING REPETITIONS OF MEMORIZED FORMULATIONS.

Be Healed!

A creepy reference by John Edwards linking John Kerry to Jesus Christ has turned a few heads. Edwards proclaimed that "[w]hen John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk. Get up out of that wheelchair and walk again...." Of course, the way Kerry would heal you would be by killing a potential life in order for someone else to live a longer life. The promise of advanced stem cell research is one of Kerry's election promises; he's lucky fetuses can't vote.

3rd Presidential Debate on Wednesday, October 13th

So the 3rd Presidential Debate at Arizona State University is set to coincide on October 13th with what David Booth says is the "Beginning of the End". Should some calamity hit that day, Bush and Kerry will be within spitting distance of Command Central for the entire US Forces, Fort Huachuca, AZ. Some readers may have heard of Huachuca before, as Maj. Gen. Barb Fast - of Abu Ghraib fame - is slated to take command of the Intelligence center there (more...). Huachuca is also the source of the training manual used by Abu Ghraib Soldiers to torture so-called terrorists. On one hand, the base is the nerve center for the NSA, but by corrollary, it is also the #1 target for a nuke strike. It is very interesting that the 3rd Presidential Debate should be held in a State that houses such a controversial Military base; even more so that it should coincide with David Booth's prediction of a calamity or beginning thereof.

NAFTA Area ID Cards in the Works

Pentagon and Pentagrams: US Military Backs Satanic Theme Park

In December of 2003, a US soldier was watching the movie The Exorcist on his portable DVD player while driving near the town of Hatra and noticed a strange coincidence: the opening sequence of that movie depicts this very town. The Sun-temples and buildings contain a statue of a specific demon named Pazuzu, who overtakes Linda Blair's character in that movie. The Penatgon has since funded a little something called "The Exorcist Experience" and has built a theme park aimed at fans of the movie. I can just see the theme park motto: "Liked the movie? Now get the demon!" Creepy.

An open Letter to Al Gore

US Federal Gov't to step up Canadian Border Patrols

An old military base in New York has been re-commisioned in the War of Terror. Rumors that many US Citizens are lining up at Canadian consulates to file for Canadian citizenship (thinking they will escape the possible wave of tyranny in the US) add to fuel the notion that the recent border patrols are meant to keep US Citizens IN rather than terrorists from Canada OUT.

"The new Air and Marine Operations facility in Plattsburgh was commissioned yesterday. It's one of five that will be responsible for tightening surveillance along the U-S-Canadian border.

National security is a main concern. But agents on patrol are looking for anything from low-flying planes trying to skirt radar to illegal aliens or drug runners trying to sneak over the border on snowmobiles.

Planes from the old Plattsburgh Air Force Base will patrol the border east to Maine, and along Lake Ontario and western Lake Erie."

Breaking News: Independent Media Shut Down by FBI

"The FBI issued an order to Rackspace in the US (Indymedia's provider with offices in the US and London) to physically remove one of our servers. The order was so short term that Rackspace had to give away our hard drives in the UK."

"The servers hosted numerous local IMCs. If you find a site is down: that might be the reason."

"The reason why the hard drives were taken are unknown."

CNN: Internet Rumors of Bush Wired for Debate

Here at TRUNews we brought to your attention a story which was circulating the internet. It regarded the lump on the back of President Bush's back during the first debate. The lump, looked more like a square box, was rumored to perhaps be a receiver for a wireless ear peice. However, just today CNN responded with an article highlighting the rumor and disregarding the story as hersay. Spokeman Scott Stanzel degradated the internet population by saying that "[s]ome people have been spending too many hours looking at left-wing conspiracy Web sites" and that "Elvis [is] moderating the third debate."

URGENT!! St. Helen Related to Third Secret of fatima?

This Info is only 48 hours old...

Basically David Booth is saying that everything begins... next week.

Catholics believe in the "Three Days Of Darkness", also associated with American Native Prophecies, and it deals with the impending judgement of humanity which would be signalled by Volcanism in the United States. According to this interview with David Booth, Volcanism at St. Helen will be followed by an eruption at Mt. Adams.

mp3 Interview


"...it fulfills the "8 day warning" as promised by The Virgin Mary when she appeared at Garabandal, Spain in the 1960s. Booth's mentioned "ripple effect" in his vision is in harmony with Native prophecies that the "Earth Changes" will first be signaled by Volcanism (e.g. when the "Little Sister [St. Helens] speaks, the Grandfather Mountain [Adams] will speak) would begin in the Northwest (which symbolically receives the "least light") U.S.A.... the Chicaraugan Indian Prophecies of Elder Eacha Ta Eacha Na in 1939-40. It is also in harmony with many other Tribal, Quaker, Biblical and numerous other European "Three Days of Darkness" prophecies..."

Mt. St. Helens Related to Yellowstone?

A couple of days ago, the Daily Reckoning posted something related to Yellowstone's Super Volcano. But the AZ Times points out that Mt. St. Helen is not likely part of the same system that feeds the supervolcano in Yellowstone.

"Throughout the last two years, there have been unsettling—even if largely unnoticed by the mainstream media—news from Yellowstone. In January, the Idaho Observer reported that park rangers closed down the entire Norris Geyser Basin “because of deformation of the land and excessive high ground temperatures.” One area in the basin had bulged upward five inches since 1996, with the ground temperature on that bulge reaching over 200 degrees in 2003.

“Everything in this area is dying,” stated the Idaho Observer, “the trees, flowers, grass and shrubs… The animals are literally migrating out of the park.” In late July 2003, geologists had discovered a 100-feet bulge at the bottom of Yellowstone Lake, a cold-water mountain lake. In January, the water temperature reached 88 degrees; according to the IO, it “is now closed to the public. It is filled with dead fish floating everywhere. The same is true of the Yellowstone river and most of the other streams in the Park.”

As the Helena Air describes, the Yellowstone Volcano Interpretive center was given 1 million dollars to disseminate informaion about the Super Volcano in Yellowstone - likely to quell fears of an eruption rather than to educate. This allocation of funding to disseminate ideas and info concerning Yellowstone stands at odds with recent political manoueverings by the likes of Hillary Clinton, who failed to to skew Park budgets such that key sites are open to terrorist attacks.

US Debt Pyramid About to Collapse?

I know there's always these people who say that the entire global financial architecture is about ready to come crashing down on us. The Daily Reckoning always seems to have some great news related to the dismal science of economics. Their latest commentary on the US Payroll stats is pretty scary:

"Americans are increasing spending more than three times faster than their incomes rise. This does not sound like a way to get rich.

How do they do it? How are they able to spend more than they make? Credit, of course...and the whole mad system of international finance in the Great Dollar Era. While Americans borrow and spend, Asians make and save. Then the canny Asians lend back their profits in what has become the largest vendor-financing scheme in history. They buy U.S. Treasury bonds, thus keeping lending rates low and asset prices - particularly housing - high. The poor lumpenhouseholder sees his hovel rise in price and thinks he has won the lottery. Giddy with joy, he rushes out to buy more Chinese-made products at everyday low prices."

Being an America must be like owing money to the Mafia. If I owed the Mafia $10,000 , and couldn't pay, it's my problem. If I owed them $10,000,000 , then it's their problem. While the US appears beholden to Asia in terms of Debt, it really is their problem, as the US is able to use its position of a debtor nation to its advantage.

Botched CNN video has Bush repeating Announcer's Words

http://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ Has the best collection of media items related to the Bush earpiece. This CNN Video (which may or may not be hoaxed) has George Bush repeating the words of another person, who is reading the speech before Bush speaks. Bush has likely started using an earpiece, because he suffers from dyslexia, and teleprompters consistently befuddle him.

Sometimes the only way to make a point is through humor. This is hilarious.


It's not Conspiracy Theory anymore: Bush Earpiece goes Mainstream

The suspicion that George Bush was literally channeling Karl Rove during the debate last week was first raised by blogger Joseph Cannon (see http://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/), who says his girlfriend, during a replaying of the debate, noticed what looked like a wire running down the back of Bush's jacket..... more

Dissolved Canadian Parliament Imminent?

Hey, I know I'm not confident in Paul Martin's ability to govern. Today marks what will be the first vote of confidence concerning the Martin Regime.

telus.ca :

If all Bloc and Conservative MPs turned out to vote down the Liberals, it would take only Independent MP Chuck Cadman - a former Conservative - to reach the threshold of 154 votes required to defeat the government.

Under that scenario, there could be another election unless Gov.-Gen. Adrienne Clarkson gave Conservative Leader Stephen Harper the go-ahead to try forming his own government.

That very idea has sent the NDP scurrying toward the Liberals' side of the floor.

"If it's a confidence vote we in the NDP won't play that game," NDP Leader Jack Layton said.

"We don't want an election or - even worse - to make Mr. Harper the prime minister of Canada with the support of (Bloc Quebecois Leader) Gilles Duceppe.

"And that would be the consequence."

Canadian Sailor Dead

Well this really pisses me off. I hope the Canadian Government will learn a lesson and quit buying garbage military equipment for our Royal Canadian Navy.

You know its pretty hard to be Royal when your government buys second hand submarines that have been mothballed for ten years. These subs which were just purchased from Britain just days ago were on their way back to Halifax. Even though these subs "cost too much and were not in good shape" the Canadian government ignored the fact that there has "been some chronic problems with [these] submarines."

The crewman died at Sligo hospital after arriving at 8:30pm in a critical condition, Paul Martin, the Canadian prime minister, said last night that "He gave his life serving his country and we owe his family our deepest condolences."

Perhaps, Mr. Martin, you can explain why, when you were finance minister, you made such devastating financial roll backs in the militarys finances to the point where military budgets can only afford used, second hand equipment that has been deemed unusable buy the seller.

Its Liberal ignorance like this that causes deaths for no reason. Its Liberal arrogance that destroyed our once respected military.

The Man George Bush Set Free

During G.W. Bush's tenure as Governor of Texas, he granted one clemency - a pardon for execution - to a man named Henry Lee Lucas. Lenny Bloom argues that this strange stay of pardon by Bush implicates him in the ritual murders. This link was recently deleted from blogspot, but reappers on another server.

1) Disaster preparedness
2) Disaster fire safety
3) Disaster medical operations
4) Light search and rescue
5) CERT Organization
6) Disaster psychology

But what really caught my eye were the last two items on CERT's training schedule:

On Tuesday, October 25th, CERT trainees will receive training on "Terrorism and CERT.”

Then, exactly one week later, CERT’s training program will conclude with a "Disaster Simulation & Examination".

This final day for the CERT training program, the day when CERT will climax with a "disaster simulation," is none other than Election Day!

Edwards Cleans Cheney's Clock

There's a reason why the Bilderberg Elite picked Edwards as their wild card for the Presidency, and it just so happens to be his great oratory skills. According to Politicalstrategy.org, Edwards is cleaning Cheney's clock in the online polls:

* MSNBC has Edwards Up 60% to 40% in this poll with over 1,580,000 respondents so far.

* CNBC Has Edwards up 59% to 41%.

* CBS News has Edwards over Cheney by a margin of 81% to 17%.

* Right wing Fox News has Cheney winning 50% to 47%.

* AOL lists Cheney as the winner 51% to 49%.

* The CNN poll has Edwards destroying Cheney 78% 18% with nearly 200,000 votes tallied.

* The Wall Street Journal has Edwards crushing Dick 88% to 9%.

* Yahoo News shows Edwards dominating Cheney 62% to 32%.

TOTAL AVG: Edwards 66%, Cheney 44%.

Dan Rather was Torpedoed over BBC Interview

Some people think that Dan Rather is complicit in the whole Bush Records fiasco, but maybe, just maybe, Rather was jettisoned for this interview he did with the BBC in 2002. An Excerpt from the transcript:

HOLT: And Rather told us with the nation so stirred, it's become almost impossible to hold the Government to account.

RATHER: (Anchor, CBS Evening News)It's an obscene comparison but there was a time in South Africa when people would put flaming tyres around people's necks if they dissented. In some ways, the fear is that you will be neck-laced here, you will have a flaming tyre of lack of patriotism put around your neck. It's that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions and to continue to bore-in on the tough questions so often. Again, I'm humbled to say I do not except myself from this criticism.

HOLT: While Rather speaks out, American television is developing a new kind of programme, based on a new kind of co-operation with the government. They call it "Militainment", entertainment TV about the military.

Well according to blogdex this is the most popular story, or I should say video, that is circulating the blogging community. It is actually quite amusing.


VP Debate

Tonight we witnessed the Vice Presidential debate. It will be interesting how the media's reaction will sway the vote either to or for the Republicans. I thought that Dick Cheney won from an ideological standpoint, however, John Edwards, with his slick retoric, seemed a bit too much like a politician. Over the next few days the pundits will tell us who won and the rest of the Americans will vote accordingly. TRU will keep you posted on the developments.

Rumors of Earpiece

The Blue Lemur is reporting a internet rumor which offers evidence that may prove that George W. Bush was wearing an ear piece during the debate. This of course, would be against the debate rules.

See for your self.

Shady Dealings Afoot Behind Alberta Health Card Scandal?

Now, it is the firm belief of the Tyranny Response Unit that governments are a) No good or 2) up to no good, especially when scandals hit. Take for instance the recent Health Care Card scandal that has shown the Klein regime to be both inept and unresponsive to concerns that the Health care card system has been systematically abused by free riders in the United States. As the Edmonton journal highlights:

* One Albertan was issued 60 duplicate or replacement health cards, while 32,440 people had received five or more.

* 123 municipalities had two to four health numbers for every person counted in the December 2003 census.

* In 2002-03, the lone Health ministry worker who investigates potential health-card abuse reviewed 105 cases and found that 54 of the numbers were ineligible. That investigation division had been downsized since the 1998 report, from two full-time workers and a part-timer to one full-time worker.

* In a three-year period, seven duplicate health cards for one personal number were used for 330 visits to 37 health-care providers in seven different parts of the province.

The timing of the news release is peculiar, as vivelecanada.ca has been keeping active on preventing the government from allowing private US companies to manage health information, as these corporations may be subject to the strictures of the Patriot Act. The "discovery" of this scandal thus comes at a peculiar time, as the Alberta government has obviously been looking at placing the management of health info out to tender for management by US Companies. The Tyranny Response Unit therefore suggests that these two activities are related and will be used by the Klein government to both advance private-for profit health care in Alberta as well as to allow security agencies in the US such as the DIA and NSA to keep track of citizens in an effort to protect the capital intensive investment in Fort McMurray, Alberta.

According to vivelecanada, it's all up to the new privacy commisioner to decide if the management of health info will be subject to the Patriot Act, or if this possibility will violate the sovereignty of Canada and the privacy of Canadians. The timing of the whole scandal is suggestive of the problem-reaction solution methods used by governments the world over to advance a specific agenda. Could it be that the Alberta Health registry was consistently under-funded in order to have such a screwed up governmental agency? Well, at least the Privacy Commissioner appears to be on our side .
