02/17/05 "CommonDreams" - - Last September, I spoke to some 2,000 students during their annual lecture at a Baptist college in Pennsylvania. After a short prayer service for peace centered on the Beatitudes, I took the stage and got right to the point. “Now let me get this straight,” I said. “Jesus says, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers,’ which means he does not say, ‘Blessed are the warmakers,’ which means, the warmakers are not blessed, which means warmakers are cursed, which means, if you want to follow the nonviolent Jesus you have to work for peace, which means, we all have to resist this horrific, evil war on the people of Iraq.”

With that, the place exploded, and 500 students stormed out. The rest of them then started chanting, “Bush! Bush! Bush!”

So much for my speech. Not to mention the Beatitudes.

Power of the people, by the people and for the people. This Enron Alberta thing is going to explode once the legislature sits. Look for the Kleinies to even attempt to invoke closure on the discussion. Someone stepped on the land mine and tripped the detonator and am sure the Conservatives don’t want to lift their foot off of it. Instead of the Alberta Advantage, this should become the Alberta Revolution as this whole mess is a long way from being over.

The Gannon Cannon - Part 1 Bush Treason In Spy Whorehouse


Looks like old Sherman has Gannon in his sights. Look out. He was predicting the Ashe/Bush connection years before Kitty Kelley talked of it.


The Gannon Cannon - Part 1 Bush Treason In Spy Whorehouse: "skolnick@ameritech.net"

This report might be considered like a website Home Page with links which seem to go in many directions. As this series progresses, I shall try to make sense of it all. Naive readers early on most possibly will greatly fault this writer.

There was in Iowa a very clever fellow named Johnny Gosch. He was considered precocious. Now some would have compared him to Michael Riconoscuito, a boy genius. Michael was a wizard in spy craft, electronics, chemistry, and a lot more.

(By a series of circumstances, we were able to interview Michael for several months in 1992, a story to itself.)

Johnny Gosch was kidnapped in 1982. His mother Noreen apparently could not get the assistance of law enforcement. So she wrote a book and sent it here and there to alternative commentators such as myself.

George Herbert Walker Bush, a concealed pedophile, was instrumental in running a teen-ager prostitution ring, Omaha, Nebraska, Chicago, District of Columbia. Early on not mentioning the Elder Bush by name, was a privately printed book on the subject, "The Franklin Cover-Up", by John DeCamp, a Nebraska State Senator. The forward to the book mentions a colleague of DeCamp, former (and now late) Director of Central Intelligence William Colby. DeCamp says he participated with Colby in Viet Nam, in "pacifying" the Viet Cong and others, through the Phoenix Assassination Program.

The book relates the story of a credit union that met a bad fate, along with a kingpin of it, in a series of events related to the teen-ager prostitution ring.

Noreen believed her disappeared son was sucked up into this sordid enterprise. She saw her son again, very briefly, in 1997. He warned her not to inquire about him.

Then in February, 2005, there surfaced a fellow named Jeff Gannon. He was a major player in a District of Columbia Escort Service. Plain spoken folks would label it simply a male call service, or a male whorehouse. Gannon was a reputed reporter for a little-known news service owned by one of George W. Bush's pals in Texas; a news operation now defunct.

Gannon apparently got into the White House and stayed with or visited, upstairs, with the occupant and resident, namely George W. Bush. Some contend the U.S. Secret Service, contrary to what they are required, did NOT log in Gannon.

Gannon alias Gosch received reportedly directly from George W. Bush in the White House and/or right nearby, the secret American CIA records used to blow the cover of CIA operative Valerie Plame. The result was that some of the 70 CIA penetration agents, supervised by Plame, operating in countries very hostile to the U.S. were identified and murdered. Blowing the cover of Plame was a reprisal against her husband, a former U.S. Ambassador who criticized George W. Bush.

In so doing, George W. Bush committed treason and violated a federal criminal provision having a severe penalty for blowing the cover of a CIA operative.

Some of Valerie Plame's penetration agents overseas, supervised by her, reportedly had reported bcover as business people of Coca-Cola Company or their units. .Funds involved link to Coca-Cola's corrupting of five members of the U.S. Supreme Court in Bush versus Gore, December, 2000.

A member of the homosexual media and political underground, written about by us since December, 2002, reputedly is John Roberts. He heads up the CBS reporting team in the White House press corps and hopes to replace Dan Rather as CBS Network Evening News Anchor Face. Roberts ostensibly escorts Gannon to where he has to go, often apparently without legal formality.

Why would the Secret Service on purpose, fail to log in Jeff Gannon to the White House?

1. One reason is the Secret Service has become accustomed to George W. Bush's co-habiting reportedly with homosexuals, such as Victor Ashe, once longtime Mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee. When a member of Congress began following up on our stories, Bush shipped Ashe out of the country, as U.S. Ambassador to Poland.

Bush's cavorting is not a private matter. It involves National Security. The Red Chinese Secret Police used their knowledge of all this to blackmail U.S. financial, industrial and MILITARY secrets out of the Bush White House.

[Visit www.skolnicksreport.com, "Overthrow" series, part 24, as well as numerous other stories on the Red Chinese Secret Police, such as with Wal-Mart.]

Some in the Secret Service have quietly resigned, fed up with covering up Bush's sordid doings as a member of the satanic cult, Skull & Bones, or as we call it, Skull & Bastards Society.

2. Another reason is that CBS's John Roberts has some reportedly rotten details about the Secret Service's involvement in political assassinations. And thus, Roberts ostensibly can escort certain persons upstairs in the White House to Bush without having the Secret Srvice log them in.

3. Jeff Gannon, in the company of John Roberts, attended a recent press conference by Bush. Gannon reportedly did not have to go through an extensive FBI/Secret Service background check. Further, apparently with Robert's connivance, Gannon, without Secret Service press credentials, was allowed to sit next to Roberts at a press conference and ask Bush a "soft ball" question, enabling Bush to mouth off about his agenda.

Some explosive purported pictures apparently have been made available to some U.S. Admirals and Generals, known in the trade as "flag officers", part of a growing group that wants to arrest their Commander-in-Chief for documented treason. If he orders them arrested for mutiny, and if they are not immediately assassinated, they intend to defend themselves at Courts Martial with documented treason by Bush as they contend they are authorized to do under the Uniform Military Code.

One picture from a whorehouse "catalogue", shows Jeff Gannon reportedly naked near the words Escort Service, Two Hundred Dollars per hour.

The other purported picture shows Jeff Gannon naked next to George W. Bush likewise naked. This picture to some is very questioable on the basis it may be too good to be true. On the other hand, some dissident flag officers in the Military contend that some dissidents in the U.S. Secret Service who are fed up with Bush's sordid activities, somehow arranged the clandestine picture.

A group of elite investigators, for many years now documenting the operation of the male prostitution ring, Omaha, Chicago, and District of Colombia, have told a very small, trusted group of old-assistants, some of the following:

===That the person using the name "Jeff Gannon" is most likely Johnny Gosch. And that the name is a tip-off in that it is the name of an editor of a major newspaper in Iowa that originally severely condemned Noreen Gosch for making an issue of the kidnapping of her twelve-year old son in 1982 who delivered newspapers for that paper.

===That Gannon alias Gosch was selected at an early age because of his cleverness and adaptability to espionage work, as the intelligence agencies are inclined to do. And that Gannon alias Gosch is part of a spy agency team so secretive its name or title is not known by those otherwise knowledgeable about secret teams.

===That Gannon alias Gosch is an expert penetration agent, through sex, compiling negative data on U.S. and foreign governmental officials. For example, fourteen members of the House and Senate are users of this whorehouse service along with at least two members of the Federal Reserve Board. The Congress members are mostly Republican that Daddy Bush, for the benefit of George W., wants to be sure they follow orders as handed down by the Anglo-American Aristocracy.

The Escort Service, supervised reportedly by Jeff Gannon alias Gosch , also reportedly services and keeps track of members of British Intelligence operating in the U.S.

===Gannon alias Gosch reportedly knows the names and whereabouts of some of the members of the secret team that not long ago burglarized the home of Federal Reserve Commissar, Alan Greenspan. They were looking for secret financial records that Greenspan was inclined to take home with him. The Fed Chief's wife, Senior Washington correspondent Andrea Mitchell, arranged for her network NBC, owned by major war-monger General Electric, to interview Gannon who refused to discuss the Escort Service

===Gannon alias Gosch is reportedly an expert on torture, trained by those who assisted the Generals operating "death squads" in Central America and South America. He has been a major consultant for extracting information by torture at Guantamino and at the Baghdad jail.

Gannon alias Gosch ostensibly is an expert on porno snuff, a murderous form of sexuality. Some years ago, according to a reputed eyewitness, John F. Kerry was present in London when there were these devilish doings. And Gannon alias Gosch is apparently directly familiar with these circumstances of Kerry in London.

Investigators have been tracking hundreds of millions of dollars of Russian mafiya funds funneling through semi-secret hedge funds and commodity accounts principally through Chicago. A Russian reportedly linked to these funds once paid millions to be a private passenger on a Russian space shot. A large portion of these illicit funds find their way to Omaha where they are reportedly commingled with espionage/dope funds handled by Warren Buffet, a major owner and board member of Coca-Cola, an adjunct of the American CIA.

[Warren Buffet is apparently the target of several federal grand juries in Atlanta, Georgia, inquiring into book-cooking by Coca-Cola's top officials. Most of Coke's upper management have departed.
Vast sums of Coke's monies have disappeared and apparently were used along with funds of Mickey Mouse, to corrupt five of the nine judges on the U.S. Supreme Court in Bush versus Gore. For exclusive details, Visit www.skolnicksreport.com, series "Coca-Cola, CIA, and the Courts:.]

Subjects of future parts of this series.

===Warren Buffet running funds reportedly through Boy's Town, as part of teen-ager whorehousing and child molesting.

===Why and how the New York Times would prefer not to defend their reporters from contempt of court jail sentences for their refusal to testify before federal grand juries, because it would directly unravel George W. Bush and the Jeff Gannon alias Johnny Gosch connection to Bush and the Valerie Plame Affair..

More coming. Stay tuned.

Makow - Confessions Of A Crackpot Solip-schism

"This man is a lunatic. He seems to be highly anti-feminist, anti-women, anti-Jewish and anti-sex...a pitiable case of self-hatred. When intellectual people go off the rails, it's truly a majestic sight."

Some of my detractors were members of the burgeoning subculture whose genitals define their lives. One, "Vixxie" describes herself as a "bisexual" who lives with both a husband and a female lover. http://www.vixxie.com/blog




Henry Makow has recently felt the heft of Big Sister's jackboot smashing down on his face. Appearantly, someone who claims to be tolerant of others labelled him as a kook, a loony. Many of Makow's writings are controversial and diffcult to take - so much so that people at InJesus have in the past censored his stuff. I put Mr. Makow up there with Lenny Bloom, John Kaminski and Xymphora - they all say things that we don't want to hear, and such is the true vein of a Prophet. When did Elijah, Jeremiah or any of the Prophets of Old ever say anything that legitimized the corrupt power structures of their day? I am in no way setting these people on equal footing with some Bible figures. What I see in them are the characteristics of Prophets - people who rub soceity's nose in their own detrius, who point out the hypocrisy or expose the underbelly of the hidden hand.

Vixxie found it strange that a man with a Ph.D degree would seem to have "gone off the rails". Henry is not crazy. Lenny Bloom from Cloak & Dagger says that Makow has it better than almost anyone. Makow has a Ph.D. in Global Elite Studies, as far as I am concerned. If you had only a Calculus 101 background and you walked into a Ph.D seminar on graph theory, you would think the people in that room are crazy too.

Therefore, The Tyranny Response Unit, if it had the ability, would grant Honorary Doctorates of Global Elite Underbelly Studies to the following people for their contribution to the understanding of what is TRULY going on:

How Toba's eruption changed life on Earth


Source


March Resources @ National Geographic Magazine

Once upon a time a volcano killed almost everybody. It's a radical and scary thought, but there's reason to think it may be true.

The disaster happened about 74,000 years ago on the island of Sumatra. The scar of the event is easily visible today: a lake named Toba, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) across at its longest dimension. It was only in 1929 that a Dutch geologist recognized the lake as a caldera.

A caldera is essentially a great hole in the Earth where the surface has collapsed after a massive volcanic eruption. The central part of Yellowstone National Park is a 35-by-45-mile (60-by-70-kilometer) example.

Eruptions that leave calderas this big don't happen often (Toba seems to be on a 400,000-year cycle, give or take a hundred thousand or so), but when they do, the effects can be global. Toba appears to have ejected some 670 cubic miles (2,790 cubic kilometers) of material, as much as 560 times the amount produced by Mount Pinatubo in 1991. The ash and gas from Toba reached 30 miles (50 kilometers) into the stratosphere and shrouded the entire planet.

A super-eruption has multiple effects on the biosphere. Sulfur dioxide combines with water vapor to form sulfuric acid particles that scatter, reflect, and absorb sunlight. The planet's surface cools, the stratosphere heats, photosynthesis is reduced.

The more immediate effects are equally devastating. Bill Rose, a volcanologist at Michigan Tech University, is particularly interested in the fine ash produced by volcanoes. The ash rains from the sky in particles so small that they can penetrate an animal's lungs. "It's like smoking," he says.

"The birds die first," says Rose. "They get the ash in their feathers and they're immobilized. Then the larger animals start to die."

A lot of the humans died too, says Stanley H. Ambrose of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Indeed, studies of mitochondrial DNA in humans point to a possible bottleneck of genetic diversity at roughly the same time as Toba's eruption, although it's impossible to prove a link.

Ambrose does believe, however, that human behavior shows signs of change after Toba. Prior to the eruption, there's little evidence that humans engaged in long-distance networking. Afterward, humans in Kenya, some 4,000 miles (6,400 kilometers) from Toba, appear to have traveled up to 200 miles (300 kilometers) carrying obsidian objects. Ambrose's theory is that humans who learned to cooperate and give gifts would survive another crisis better than those who lived in isolated groups and did not practice altruism or reciprocity.

So you might say gifts saved the world, a heartwarming ending to this disaster story.

34 Ongoing Water-Gate Equivalent Scandals

You would think that one of the thiry-four scandals would eventually stick.


Moscow Times


Day in and day out, patriotic American dissidents on both the left and the right keep shovelling through the bloody muck of the Bush Imperium. The filth is endless, Augean; Salon.com recently catalogued 34 ongoing major scandals, equalling or surpassing the depravity of Watergate. Yet still the patriots bend to the task, tossing up steaming piles of ugly truth before the public.

And with every loud splattering of fresh Bushflop, there's a flurry of hope that this time, the dirt will stick; this time, the stench of corruption will be so overwhelming that the nation's long-somnolent conscience will be aroused. Yet each time, the rancid slurry just disappears down the drain: The Bushists tell their butt-covering lies, the "watchdogs" of the media wag their tails and all is well again in the land that Gore Vidal so aptly dubbed the United States of Amnesia. No scandal, no matter how outrageous, ever gains any traction.

Cap. Hill Blue Asks: Is Dubya Closeted?

Uh-oh. Dougie Thompson is mad and is out to tear Bush a new turd-cutter. Ouch.


Capitol Hill Blue


Bush lied to Congress, our allies and the American people about why we needed to invade Iraq. He lied again to Congress and the country about the true cost of his politically-motivated Medicare prescription plan. He lies repeatedly about when the Social Security system will run out of money. Recently disclosed audio tapes shows he lied (through omission) about his past drug use.

And, to promote his lies, Bush’s administration and backers deploy liars like James Guckert to pose, under an assumed name, as a journalist.

And were these political hacks are so desperate to find a shill they didn’t even bother to check his background?

Perhaps. Perhaps not.

Perhaps Bush, like other public homophobes, decries the gay life because of yet another secret in his sordid past. Maybe booze and cocaine wasn’t the only thing our President stuffed into an available orifice.

Jesus Hated Bald Pussy
by Hunter S. Thompson From "Kingdom Of Fear " 2003

Let's face it, the yo-yo president of the U.S.A. knows nothing. He is a dunce. He does what
he is told to do, says what he is told to say, poses the way he is told to pose. He is a fool.

No. Nonsense. The president cannot be a Fool. Not at this moment in time, when the last
living vestiges of the American Dream are on the line. This is not the time to have a bogus
rich kid in charge of the White House.

Which is, after all, our house. That is our headquarters, it is where the heart of America lives.
So if the president lies and acts giddy about other people's lives, if he wantonly and stupidly
endorses mass murder by definition, a loud and meaningless animal with no functional
intelligence and no balls.

To say this goofy child president is looking more and more like Richard Nixon in the summer
of 1974 would be a flagrant insult to Nixon.

Whoops! Did I say that? Is it even vaguely possible that some New Age Republican whore-beast
of a false president could actually make Richard Nixon look like a Liberal?

The capacity of these vicious assholes we elected to be in charge of our lives for four years
to commit terminal damage to our lives and our souls and our loved ones is far beyond Nixon's.
Shit! Nixon was the creator of many of the once-proud historical landmarks that these dumb
bastards are savagely destroying now: the Clean Air Act of 1970; Campaign Finance Reform;
the endangered species act; a Real-Politik dialogue with China; and on and on.

The prevailing quality of life in America-by any accepted methods of measuring-was inarguably
freer and more politically open under Nixon than it is today in this evil year of our Lord 2002.

The Boss was a certified monster who deserved to be impeached and banished. He was a
truthless creature of former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, a foul human monument to corruption
and depravity on a scale that dwarfs any other public official in American history. But Nixon was
at least smart enough to understand why so many honorable patriotic U.S. citizens despised him.
He was a Liar. The truth was not in him.

Nixon believed, as he said many times, that if the president of the United States does it, it can't
be illegal. But Nixon never understood the much higher and meaner truth of Bob Dylan's warning
that "To live outside the law you must be honest."

The difference between an outlaw and a war criminal is the difference between a pedophile and
a Pederast: The pedophile is a person who thinks about sexual behavior with children, and the Pederast
does these things. He lays hands on innocent children, he penetrates them and changes their lives forever.

Being the object of a pedophile's warped affections is a Routine feature of growing up in America, and
being a victim of a Pederast's crazed "love" is part of dying. Innocence is no longer an option. Once
penetrated, the child becomes a Queer in his own mind, and that is not much different than murder.

Richard Nixon crossed the line when he began murdering foreigners in the name of "family values"- and
George Bush crossed it when he sneaked into office and began killing brown skinned children in the
name of Jesus and the American people.

When Muhammad Ali declined to be drafted and forced to kill "gooks" in Vietnam he said, "I ain't got
nothin' against them Viet Cong. No Cong ever called me Nigger." I agreed with him, according to my
own personal ethics and values. He was right.

If we all had a dash of Muhammad Ali's eloquent courage, this country and the world would be a better
place today because of it. Okay. That's it for now. Read it and weep....

See you tomorrow, folks. You haven't heard the last of me. I am the one who speaks for the spirit of
freedom and decency in you. Shit. Somebody has to do it. We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes
of the whole world-a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not
just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and
that is how history will judge us... No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we'll kill you.

Well, shit on that dumbness. George W. Bush does not speak for me or my son or my mother or my friends
or the people I respect in this world. We didn't vote for these cheap, greedy little killers who speak for
America today- and we will not vote for them again in 2002. Or 2004. Or ever.

Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this
innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and
fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad
Ali locked up for refusing to kill "gooks". They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the
American character. They are racists and hate mongers among us-they are the Ku Klux Klan.
I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not.
Fuck them.



Cellucci Slips Up: Flight 93 "Shot Down"

Uh, Paul, the official word is that the heroes took it down and it crashed, remember?


Canada.com

Boucher noted Canada and the U.S. amended an agreement last August to allow Norad to track any incoming rogue missiles.

Washington had hoped Canada would would go further and participate in building the continental defence shield, an elaborate system that some worry could lead to weapons in space and an international arms race.

Cellucci compared the situation to one that occurred during the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. He noted that it was a Canadian general at Norad who scrambled military jets under orders from Bush to shoot down a hijacked commercial aircraft headed for Washington.

Had that plane been flying over Canada, it would have fallen to the prime minister to make the decision to shoot it down, Cellucci said.

That's why Americans were "perplexed" as to why Canadians would want to leave it up to the Americans to decide what action to take in the event a missile was aimed at Canada.


The rest of the story:

Flight 93 timeline:


10:06 a.m. Flight 93 crashes just north of the Somerset County Airport, about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, 124 miles or 15 minutes from Washington DC. [10:00, MSNBC, 9/22/01, 10:03, NORAD, 9/18/01, 10:06, Guardian, 10/17/01, 10:06, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 10/28/01, 10:06, MSNBC, 9/3/02, 10:06, Mirror, 9/13/02, 10:06, USA Today, 8/13/02, 10:07, AP, 8/19/02, 10:10, CNN, 9/12/01, 10:10, Washington Post, 9/12/01, 10:10, New York Times, 9/12/01, 10:10, Boston Globe, 11/23/01, 10:06:05, US Army authorized seismic study] Little information about the crash has been made public.


The Flight 93 crater. Notice the destruction of the airplane is nearly total. [Reuters]

(Before and After 10:06 a.m.) "At least half a dozen named individuals ... have reported seeing a second plane flying low and in erratic patterns, not much above treetop level, over the crash site within minutes of the United flight crashing. They describe the plane as a small, white jet with rear engines and no discernible markings." [Independent, 8/13/02]
1) Lee Purbaugh: "I didn't get a good look but it was white and it circled the area about twice and then it flew off over the horizon." [Mirror, 9/13/02]
2) Susan Mcelwain: Less than a minute before the Flight 93 crash rocked the countryside, she sees a small white jet with rear engines and no discernible markings swoop low over her minivan near an intersection and disappear over a hilltop, nearly clipping the tops of trees lining the ridge. [Bergen Record, 9/14/01] She later adds, "There's no way I imagined this plane - it was so low it was virtually on top of me. It was white with no markings but it was definitely military, it just had that look. It had two rear engines, a big fin on the back like a spoiler on the back of a car and with two upright fins at the side. I haven't found one like it on the internet. It definitely wasn't one of those executive jets. The FBI came and talked to me and said there was no plane around.... But I saw it and it was there before the crash and it was 40 feet above my head. They did not want my story - nobody here did." [Mirror, 9/13/02]
3 and 4) Dennis Decker and Rick Chaney, Decker speaking: "As soon as we looked up [after hearing the Flight 93 crash], we saw a midsized jet flying low and fast. It appeared to make a loop or part of a circle, and then it turned fast and headed out." Decker and Chaney described the plane as a Learjet type, with engines mounted near the tail and painted white with no identifying markings. "It was a jet plane, and it had to be flying real close when that 757 went down. If I was the FBI, I'd find out who was driving that plane." [Bergen Record, 9/14/01]
5) Jim Brandt sees a small plane with no markings stay about one or two minutes over the crash site before leaving. [Pittsburgh Channel, 9/12/01]
6) Tom Spinelli: "I saw the white plane. It was flying around all over the place like it was looking for something. I saw it before and after the crash." [Mirror, 9/13/02]
The FBI later says this was a Fairchild Falcon 20 business jet, directed after the crash to fly from 37,000 feet to 5,000 feet and obtain the coordinates for the crash site to help rescuers. [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 9/16/01, Pittsburgh Channel, 9/15/01] Was the unmarked jet some kind of reconnaissance plane?
The FBI also says there was a C-130 military cargo aircraft flying at 24,000 feet about 17 miles away, but that plane wasn't armed and had no role in the crash. [Pittsburgh Channel, 9/15/01, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 9/16/01] Note that this is the same C-130 that flies very close to Flight 77 right as that planes crashes into the Pentagon (see 9:38 a.m.).

(After 10:06 a.m.) Just after Flight 93 crashes, "Up above, a fighter jet streak[s] by." [ABC, 9/15/02]

(After 10:06 a.m.) At some point after Flight 93 crashes, NORAD diverts "unarmed Michigan Air National Guard fighter jets that happened to be flying a training mission in northern Michigan since the time of the first attack." [AP, 8/30/02] Why weren't they diverted an hour or more earlier?

(10:08 a.m.) Bush is told of the crash of Flight 93 a few minutes later. Because of Cheney's earlier order, he asks, "Did we shoot it down or did it crash?" Several hours later, he is assured it crashed. [Washington Post, 1/27/02]


IMF Imposes Austerity Measures on US

(Conspiracy Nation, 2/7/05) -- Yesterday, while Americans were stupefied by "Super Bill Sunday" sports mania, a different sort of super bill was presented for payment in the nation's newspapers. (See "Super Bill Sunday", www.shout.net/~bigred/SuperBill.html for background.)


Heretofore, so-called "austerity measures" were something that happened in "those other countries," those poor, third-world ones. Then, the austerity measures crept into second-world nations such as Russia and Argentina. Next, Germany and France found themselves invaded by the austerity measures. Now, on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2005, while Americans geared up for the annual Super Bowl overindulgences, a Super Bill demanding payment has been presented to U.S. citizens via the newspapers. ("Budget may cut law grants, heating aid," AP, 2/6/05. The proposed 2006 budget, toughest since Bush first took office, will lead to "draconian cuts... very, very heavy cuts," according to one source.)


The note of hand demanding payment was handed off to news flunkies for delivery. Front-man for the collection agency is "Dubya" Bush. The actual moneylenders lurk in the shadows, unseen.

Reaction of HST's wife strange to you?

HOG ON ICE: Want to Vomit?

About the impromptu gathering with the sagging corpse: "It was very loving. It was not a panic, or ugly, or freaky." No, of course not. What's freaky about having a drink with your dead husband as brains ooze down his back? I guess that if there's anything more ignominious than scrambling your own brain because you wasted your life and you can't write any more, it's having your dead body used by your own wife and son, as a grisly prop in a pretentious "counterculture" celebration. What's next? A long-pig barbecue?

Check this out:

"He did not destroy his face," Anita Thompson says. "He did it in his mouth. His face was beautiful. It was quick. It was not grisly or gruesome by any means. That's probably why he took that gun. He spared us a gruesome scene."

In other words, the back of his cranium was gone and his brain was sprayed all over the area behind him, but it was okay, because his eyes didn't pop and run down his face. Is this how you want your wife to react when you signal your utter hopelessness and desperation by murdering yourself in your kitchen? I'd want my wife to be heartsick at the realization that I had been that miserable. But then I'm a square.

Before Gannon: New Book Spotlights White House Press Corps Incidents

If we look at the historical context, instances of unqualified reporters getting access to the White House are not out of the ordinary.


Before Gannon: New Book Spotlights White House Press Corps Incidents


Hunter S. Thompson and the Aspen Institute

Let's weave a thread, shall we? What is the significance of Hunter S. Thompson's connections to the Aspen Institute? It's probably a dead end, but worth looking into.

It appears that Hunter S. Thompson has a connection to the Aspen Institute, where he received "leadership training" in 1964.

Of interest is his connection to Aspen Institute bigwig Walter Isaacson.
Walter Isaacson regarded Thompson as his mentor.

Prince Bandar is a part of the Aspen Institute, and their list of members can be found HERE.

A lot of powerful people hang out there.

It is connected to Elian Gonzalez.

The Aspen Institute appears to have imposed certain economic conditions on the nation of Iran back in 1975.


This is what some people have said about the Aspen Institute:

Barry Chamish

By the 1970s elitist intellectuals and globalist institutions had focused on population growth and industrial development as two of the most pressing enemies of the human race. The United Nations, the Club of Rome, the Tavistock and Aspen Institutes and many other organizations that served as mouthpieces for the ruling elites all began crying out that the environment was being destroyed and that industrialization was becoming a terrible menace. Technology, science and human progress were falling out of favor. The elites considered the earth's resources their possessions and they did not want to share them with an emerging and developing Third World.

. . .

The Aspen Institute is another important globalist think tank. It was established in 1949 by three Chicagoans: a businessman, the president of the University of Chicago and one of his professors. The University of Chicago was founded with Rockefeller money, and the Aspen Institute has always existed within the Rockefeller sphere of influence. One of the high points of the history of the Aspen Institute was a conference on "Technology: Social Goals and Cultural Options" in 1970 that paved the way for the UN's Earth Summit in Stockholm in 1972.

In Iran members of the Aspen Institute and the Club of Rome linked up directly with the ideological opponents of the Shah's regime in Iran. Ali Shariati, Abolhassan Bani-Sadr and many of the leading educators in Iran's universities were brought into their circle of influence. The Globalists' destabilization campaign against the Shah is documented in Robert Dreyfuss' book Hostage To Khomeini, of which a portion can be read here at the website dedicated to Iran's former prime minister Amir Abbas Hoveyda.

Google Flags Search With Word 'Jew' In It

An explanation of our search results.

If you recently used Google to search for the word "Jew," you may have seen results that were very disturbing. We assure you that the views expressed by the sites in your results are not in any way endorsed by Google. We'd like to explain why you're seeing these results when you conduct this search.

A site's ranking in Google's search results is automatically determined by computer algorithms using thousands of factors to calculate a page's relevance to a given query. Sometimes subtleties of language cause anomalies to appear that cannot be predicted. A search for "Jew" brings up one such unexpected result.

If you use Google to search for "Judaism," "Jewish" or "Jewish people," the results are informative and relevant. So why is a search for "Jew" different? One reason is that the word "Jew" is often used in an anti-Semitic context. Jewish organizations are more likely to use the word "Jewish" when talking about members of their faith. The word has become somewhat charged linguistically, as noted on websites devoted to Jewish topics such as these:

* http://shakti.trincoll.edu/~mendele/vol01/vol01.174
* http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/jonah081500.asp

Someone searching for information on Jewish people would be more likely to enter terms like "Judaism," "Jewish people," or "Jews" than the single word "Jew." In fact, prior to this incident, the word "Jew" only appeared about once in every 10 million search queries. Now it's likely that the great majority of searches on Google for "Jew" are by people who have heard about this issue and want to see the results for themselves.

Our search results are generated completely objectively and are independent of the beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google. Some people concerned about this issue have created online petitions to encourage us to remove particular links or otherwise adjust search results. Because of our objective and automated ranking system, Google cannot be influenced by these petitions. The only sites we omit are those we are legally compelled to remove or those maliciously attempting to manipulate our results.

We apologize for the upsetting nature of the experience you had using Google and appreciate your taking the time to inform us about it.

Fintan Dunne Skeptical of Certain 9-11 Alliances

Fintan Dunne has an interesting perspective on recent shifts within the 9-11 movement. LISTEN

Bloggers Will Incite Terror Threats From Gannon-Gate Queries

This Gannon-gate thing is getting way too crazy. For one, the coverage by the mainstream media is very, very tamed down. They limit the debate to Guckert using a false name and present the whole thing as a security breach issue. Trying to play the moral high-road strategy, journalists are dismissing the gay-hooker aspects of it.

But a growing discrepancy is coming to light. Notably, the difference in coverage by the bloggers and the MSM. Bloggers are so far down the rabbit hole on this one, the MSM hasn't a hope in hell to catch up and actually begin to comprehend what could be happening. They are hoping this one will blow over, because any further inquiries might turn up even more gay Republicans, or gay Republican media people. The MSM consistently states that we have no business investigating a person's sexual orientation or habits, either forgetting to mention or blinkering out altogether one name that says it all: CLINTON.

Now we have Gannon denouncing conspiracy theories and generating more of his own by titling a column with a reference to Hunter S. Thompson. This thing could get so big that we'll likely see some terror threats as a signal to back off this one. The US Military and folks at CERN invented the internet - I'm sure they know how to take it down and make it look like a terror attack.


Prince Bandar: Bush's HST Hitman?

According to these articles, Prince Bandar, who has close ties to the White House, seems to be the local Mafia Don in Pitkin County, where HST was suicided. Bandar has been busy buying off the locals, and maybe his money has found its way into the determination of HST's suicide.

TRUNews is not the only one to find it odd that Prince Bandar was HST's neighbor:


Another outspoken (VERY OUTSPOKEN) opponent of the B.F.E.E. is discovered dead from a gunshot wound labeled "an apparent suicide..."

Color me a conspiracy nut, but I just found it a LITTLE bit troubling to discover that his neighbor is PRINCE BANDAR! (Or "Bandar Bush" to the Bush family!)

Here's an excerpt from a Bankrate.com interview with Hunter S. Thompson last fall.

Bankrate: You've been pretty outspoken in your dislike of our current commander in chief.

Hunter S. Thompson: I was candid about Nixon, too.

Bankrate: Yet you say Nixon pales in comparison to George W. Bush.

Hunter S. Thompson: Oh, yeah, he looks almost like a liberal. You look at the Clean Air Act and several others back then. Nixon was a crook but at least he operated off of an individual base. But this yoyo, this stupid little … It's cheap opera. Take a look at your pocket. Take a look around you. It's a hold-up, a looting of the national treasury, and that's what they're doing. The combined spending of the Kerry campaign is far less than $5 million for advertising. Five million dollars, that's like a goddamned Susan Anthony dollar compared to $60 billion that is just routine going out to Halliburton. We might lose if we went to war with Halliburton.

Bankrate: You are neighbors with Prince Bandar, the Saudi ambassador and longtime Bush family friend featured in Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Hunter S. Thompson: I can see him from my front porch. He's been a pretty good neighbor; that counts for a lot out here. He will shoot some skeet now and then. I don't want to say anything really ugly about him. He's an enlightened plutocrat, I guess you call it. Michael Moore is dead right on that, and it's even worse than you think. Bandar. All kinds of roads cross out here. Networks and wires.

Bankrate: The Bush Administration seems to have lit your fuse. Are you angry again?

Hunter S. Thompson: Very angry. I'm very angry. That's why I guess I have to write this (campaign) piece for Rolling Stone. This is the darkest hour that I have seen in my long experience as an American. This is evil.

Thompson came to the Aspen area in the early 1960s. It had a rough-and-tumble quality that's been replaced by wealth and gentility. Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan owns an enormous spread above the city.


Despite Bandar's investment in his Aspen home, the amount of time he spends here is something of a mystery, as he keeps a low profile and is closely guarded by tight security.”G282 There should be no mystery why Bandar keeps secure at the expense of Aspen citizens. The article does not tell about the gas masks, bomb shelter, etc for Bandar and his family. Bandar has expelled all Arab guards in all of his palaces for fear of a terrorist in their midst. Bandar uses the father of President Gerry Ford’s grandchildren to provide his secret security. One is perplexed at the Colorado media’s incomplete coverage of Bandar resulting in naiveté of Colorado citizens to the Saud family’s devious and criminal actions. Bandar and his visiting Washington retainers have made Aspen one of the top five terrorist targets within the United States. There have been Aspen terrorist alarms already. Just east of Denver is a family decimated by the continuing torture of their daughter with the direct assistance of Bandar’s office.

"Bandar uses the Saud family Washington retainers to hide the Saud family criminal behavior from Aspen citizens. Confidentiality employment contracts are but one way of keeping his devious activities away from Aspen citizens. Bandar only thrives in secrecy. It is astounding that the Aspen citizens do not know how precarious their situation is as ground zero in the terrorist world. It is obvious officials of Aspen institutions are selling out the security of the Aspen citizens for monies from Bandar and his family."

Michael Moore:


“The Saudi ambassador attended the unveiling of former President George H.W. Bush's official portrait when he returned to the White House in 1995. He was among the guests at a surprise 75th birthday party in 2000 for former first lady Barbara Bush, and the former president has vacationed at Bandar's home in Aspen, Colo. Bandar has been a guest at the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas. Just last year he presented the first family with a C.M. Russell painting, a gift worth $1 million that will be stored in the National Archives, along with other presents from well-wishers destined for a [George W.] Bush presidential library.” Mike Glover, “Kerry Criticizes Bush on Saudi Meeting”, Associated Press, April 23, 2004.

GROUNDSWELL: Hunter S. Thompson Jeff Gannon/Guckert and Johnny Gosch

A new power is rising. The bloggers are coming.

Todd Brendan Fahey just took up the Gannon-Gosch-Thompson-gate theory originally (in my estimation) coined by the folks at Democratic Underground.

See Todd's analysis HERE.

TBF brings to the table this Jack Blood radio interview with Mack White, who broke the Jeff Wells/TRUNews analysis HERE


The SHOCKING aspects of the Jack Blood interview are twofold.

1. A caller who noted how Jeff Gannon is making his comeback - he is suing the adult domain names and in my estimation may try a lawsuit against the bloggers. That's like suing the free market for going bankrupt.

2. The same caller noted that Gannon's comeback column is titled none other than FEAR AND LOATHING IN THE PRESS ROOM! HERE So it appears Gannon made the allusion himself.

From Mack White:

Excerpt from a January 2003 Democracy Now interview (LINK ):

HUNTER S. THOMPSON: I think a lot of people in this country agree with me. A lot more never say anything. We'll see what happens to me if I get my head cut off in the next week by -- it's always unknown Bush [inaudible] strangers who commit suicide right afterward. No witnesses. They have a new kind of crime. MARY SUMA: Is that the CIA kind of crime?

HUNTER S. THOMPSON: Oh, absolutely. Anyone who's a successful criminal has got a crime. Absolutely no witnesses, no records. We can go on and on. I have to be restrained on the subject.

AGAIN, THERE WERE NO WITNESSES TO HST's DEATH. He Invoked the Hegelian Dialectic to advance his thesis. HST wanted the bloggers to fight for him.

Hunter S. Thompson About To Bring Down Pedophile Elite

Cloak & Dagger tells me that HST was working on a story or book about the pedophacracy, and he has learned this from Tom Henegan. But I don't understand why HST was talking of suicide so much before his death. I think that there is a 50/50 chance he pulled the trigger to go out in his own way and to bring the world's attention to his UPCOMING UNPUBLISHED WORK.



articles

"At first I was very angry. He was my best friend, my lover, my partner, and my teacher," she said. "But I know he is much more powerful and alive now than ever before. He is in all of our hearts. His death was a triumph of his own human spirit because this is what he wanted. He lived and died like a champion."

In recent months, Thompson, 67, had repeatedly talked of killing himself, she said, and had been issuing directives verbally and in writing of what he wanted done with his body, his unpublished work and his assets. His suicidal designs put an intense strain on their relationship, she said, but his motives were not rooted in desperation or fear -- he simply felt his time had come.

. . .

Last weekend, Anita, who was working out at the Aspen Club & Spa, called Thompson, who asked her to come home so they could work on his weekly ESPN column. She said the two never said goodbye; rather, he placed the receiver beside his typewriter that sat on the kitchen counter, loaded his revolver, and pulled the trigger.

"I was on the phone with him, he set the receiver down and he did it. I heard the clicking of the gun," said the author's widow, adding that the clicking sounded as if he was striking the keys of his typewriter. She heard a loud, muffled noise in the background, but did not know what had happened. "I was waiting for him to get back on the phone." He never did.

"I'm going to miss him horribly, you can't even imagine. He was such a beautiful man."


But still, there are NO WITNESSES TO ACTUALLY SEE HST PULL THAT TRIGGER.



I’m a road man for the lords of Karma.
DENVER – The question won’t go away, and Juan Thompson paused to give it some thought: Why would his father, legendary journalist Hunter S. Thompson, take his own life? Was it his declining health?

‘‘I don’t think so,’’ Thompson said. ‘‘One thing that he said many times was that, 'I’m a road man for the lords of Karma.’ It’s a cryptic saying. But there’s an implication there that he may have decided that his work was done and that he didn’t want to overstay his welcome; it was time to go.’’

. . .

Looking back on the hours before he discovered his father dead in the kitchen, Thompson said he saw no hints of what he was about to do. Their last conversation, like so many others, was about one of the writer’s business dealings. There was no suicide note.

Hunger for Dictatorship In US Growing

Hunger for Dictatorship


"Stern points to the religious (and more explicitly Protestant) component in the rise of Nazism—but I don't think the proto-fascist mood is strongest among the so-called Christian Right. The critical letters this magazine receives from self-identified evangelical Christians are almost always civil in tone; those from Christian Zionists may quote Scripture about the Israeli-Palestinian dispute in ways that are maddeningly nonrational and indisputably pre-Enlightenment—but these are not the letters foaming with a hatred for those with the presumption to oppose George W. Bush's wars for freedom and democracy. The genuinely devout are perhaps less inclined to see the United States as “God marching on earth.”


Secondly, it is necessary to distinguish between a sudden proliferation of fascist tendencies and an imminent danger. There may be, among some neocons and some more populist right-wingers, unmistakable antidemocratic tendencies. But America hasn’t yet experienced organized street violence against dissenters or a state that is willing—in an unambiguous fashion—to jail its critics. The administration certainly has its far Right ideologues—the Washington Post’s recent profile of Alberto Gonzales, whose memos are literally written for him by Cheney aide David Addington, provides striking evidence. But the Bush administration still seems more embarrassed than proud of its most authoritarian aspects. Gonzales takes some pains to present himself as an opponent of torture; hypocrisy in this realm is perhaps preferable to open contempt for international law and the Bill of Rights. "

VIDEO: CNN initially reported no plane hit Pentagon


According to this video, CNN reporter Jamie McIntyre initially stated that from "His close up inspection" it didn't appear that a "plane [had] crashed anywhere near the Pentagon."


Additional news footage from 9/11 avaliable on DVD here.


Transcript by Total911.info:


JAMIE MCINTYRE: From my close-up inspection, there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon.


The only site, is the actual side of the building that's crashed in. And as I said, the only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage, nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon and then caused the side to collapse.


Even though if you look at the pictures of the Pentagon you see that the floors have all collapsed, that didn't happenm immediately. It wasn't until almost about 45 minutes later that the structure was weakened enough that all of the floors collapsed.

Little South Korea Almost Tanks US Market

Warning from the markets

When a seemingly innocuous remark from the central bank of South Korea makes the dollar tank, as happened on Tuesday, all is not well with the United States' position in the world economy.
.
The dollar has been on a downward trajectory for three years, thanks in part to the Bush administration's decision to try to use a cheap dollar to shrink the nation's enormous trade deficit. To be truly effective, however, a weak dollar must be combined with a lower federal budget deficit - or even a budget surplus, something the administration clearly hasn't delivered. So predictably, the weak-dollar ploy hasn't worked. The United States' trade deficit has mushroomed to record levels, as has the United States' need to borrow from abroad - some $2 billion a day - just to balance its books.

Condi Dresses as Nazi Dominatrix


Condoleezza Rice's Commanding Clothes (washingtonpost.com)

Rice's coat and boots speak of sex and power -- such a volatile combination, and one that in political circles rarely leads to anything but scandal. When looking at the image of Rice in Wiesbaden, the mind searches for ways to put it all into context. It turns to fiction, to caricature. To shadowy daydreams. Dominatrix! It is as though sex and power can only co-exist in a fantasy. When a woman combines them in the real world, stubborn stereotypes have her power devolving into a form that is purely sexual.

George W. Bush is FAAAABULOUS!

Wow.



"'And we'll prevail, because we're a faaabulous nation, and we're a faaabulous nation because we're a nation full of faaabulous people.'

-- George W. Bush., Atlanta, GA, January 31, 2002"

Did Hunter S. Thompson tell who killed him?

Wait a minute - there were no witnesses to HST's suicide.

Most media accounts go like this:
Thompson was found dead Sunday in his Aspen-area home of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, sheriff's officials said. He was 67. Thompson's wife, Anita, had gone out before the shooting and was not home at the time. His son, Juan, found the body.

Thompson "took his life with a gunshot to the head," the wife and son said in a statement released to the Aspen Daily News. The statement asked for privacy for Thompson's family and, using the Latin term for Earth, added, "He stomped terra."


Check out this exchange from Hunter's interview with Mary Suma, KDNK in January, 2003:

====

HUNTER S. THOMPSON: I think a lot of people in this country agree with me. A lot more never say anything. We'll see what happens to me if I get my head cut off in the next week by -- it's always unknown Bush [inaudible] strangers who commit suicide right afterward. No witnesses. They have a new kind of crime.
MARY SUMA: Is that the CIA kind of crime?

HUNTER S. THOMPSON: Oh, absolutely. Anyone who's a successful criminal has got a crime. Absolutely no witnesses, no records. We can go on and on. I have to be restrained on the subject.



So there's no eyewitness to HST's "suicide".


What might this "He Stomped Terra" mean? The common play on words is HST, HuntEr S ThOMPson ED TERRA - HE'S TOM PEDTERRA ?

Bird Flu Pandemic: Imminent Global Threat

World: Fears Rising Of Possible Bird Flu Epidemic


United Nations officials say the world must act swiftly to prevent a pandemic being triggered by bird flu, which has already killed 46 people in Asia. The warning comes from a conference on the bird flu being held in Vietnam that seeks to review how Asian governments reacted to the bird-flu virus and plot a strategy to combat a possible pandemic. Delegations from more than 20 countries and organizations, including major donors and United Nations agencies, are attending the conference.


Prague, 24 February 2005 (RFE/RL) -- UN officials are warning that the bird-flu outbreak in Asia poses the "gravest possible danger" of becoming a global human threat.


At a conference under way in Ho Chi Minh City chaired by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization, the current situation of the virus is being assessed -- and many experts say the bird-flu virus has become more complex and could develop into a human virus.


WHO's Western Pacific regional director, Shigeru Omi, raised concerns. "It is now being found in animals such as cats and tigers, that were not previously considered susceptible to influenza A viruses," Omi told Reuters. "Not only that, it is more pathogenic than the strain found in Hong Kong in 1997. This suggests that the virus is evolving in ways that increasingly favor the start of a pandemic."


According to some estimates, nearly 140 million birds have been slaughtered or died in the Asian epidemic so far, and the financial cost of that loss is already up to 10 billion dollars.


Experts say the flu might never be eliminated, partly because ducks are silent carriers and open-air farms allow them to spread the disease. In Asia, ducks waddle in fields and farmyards, mixing with other animals and spreading the disease.


Officials also say the virus has proved to be highly versatile and resilient. Japanese researchers found flies with the bird-flu virus after an outbreak among chickens in Japan last year.


Omi also says the virus is more dangerous than SARS, or the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. "The important thing for all of us," Omi said, "is that if the [avian flu] virus becomes highly contagious among humans, the health impact in terms of deaths and sickness will be enormous, and certainly much greater than SARS."


The UN food agency say the bird flue is expected to linger for many years and it calls for a massive effort to contain the virus before it spreads to other parts of the world. Some WHO scientists say the outbreak of a pandemic could kill millions of people worldwide.


WHO spokesperson Dick Thompson -- in an interview with RFE/RL in December -- took a more cautious outlook on a possible pandemic. "Well, there have been a little more than 40 cases in the last year," Thompson said. "There's a high-case fatality rate when we do see these cases. But what we haven't seen is the virus moving efficiently from one human to another."


Thompson added that it was too early in the virus's cycle to have a clear idea of what the fatality rate could be among humans.


Avian influenza does not normally infect species other than birds and pigs. But humans came down with the bird flu in Hong Kong in 1997, when the H5N1 strain infected 18 humans, six of whom died. Antiviral drugs are clinically effective against the avian flu, but do have some limitations. There is no vaccine available for the disease.

Ritual and Sexual Torture in Gitmo and Abu Ghraib

Diane Christian: Bad Blood, Ritual and Sexual Torture in Gitmo and Abu Ghraib

The women who smeared menstrual blood and rubbed their breasts on men who sometimes spat at them as whores are not the young women revealed last year posing with men on leashes and mocking prisoners' genitals. The women who brandished menstrual blood were part of an interrogation cadre doing what they were told would break the spirit of jihadists. Rumsfeld and Bush professed shock at sexual tortures last year; they have not spoken about this variation. Do they find it disgusting? Or do they applaud these women as their valiant and covert warriors, doing a tough and disagreeable job that needs to be done? President Bush often deplored the degrading treatment of women in Afghanistan and Iraq, citing the liberation of women as part of our mission in 'bringing freedom' to these cultures. The liberated women we present in Iraq and Afghanistan and Guantánamo are not attractive to cultures that value modesty.

Gannon's Greatest Hits



May 10, 2004: "Q In your denunciations of the Abu Ghraib photos, you've used words like 'sickening,' 'disgusting' and 'reprehensible.' Will you have any adjectives left to adequately describe the pictures from Saddam's rape rooms and torture chambers? And will Americans ever see those images?
"MR. McCLELLAN: I'm glad you brought that up, Jeff, because the President talks about that often."







Here's the kicker: Sy Hersh has argued that this whole Abu Ghraib thing goes right to the top. The DailyKOS writes that kids were sodomized with glowsticks. Alberto Gonzalez, the Larry Flint of Prison Porn, creates the climate to allow for this to happen, and Bush appoints him to Attorney General, all the while, Rummy was trying to resign.

Gannon was the guy that got the war porn out.

Gannon downplayed the "alleged" abuse of Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in a May 11, 2004, article titled "Administration Pressed to Release Pictures from Saddam's Torture Chambers." In the article, Gannon acknowledged that it was actually Talon News that was pressing the administration to release the photos to "put the photographs from Abu Ghraib in proper perspective." According to Gannon:

Some Americans are angry about the overreaction of the "Arab street" and the politicization of the [Abu Ghraib] matter by Democrats. The White House press corps' demands for an apology from President Bush have been a particular source of annoyance to many since no apologies were issued after several American contractors were burned and hung from a bridge in Falluja last month. They contend that the prisoners that were photographed while naked will survive their ordeal, but many of Saddam's victims did not survive the torture chambers and will never be seen again.

Gannon himself had asked White House press secretary Scott McClellan to release the photos during the previous day's press briefing, and in doing so provided yet another "lifeline" to McClellan, who had faced a series of tough questions about the administration's accountability in the Abu Ghraib abuse scandal.



Madsen has an interesting theory:

The discovery of Gannon's involvement with military-oriented gay pornographic sites having sado-masochistic overtones, including urination, has a number of observers looking for a connection with the documented cases of prisoner sexual abuse by U.S. military members and contractors. That abuse included male-on-male rape, male-on-female rape, the sodomizing by U.S. and allied military personnel of young male and teen prisoners with such implements as glow sticks and broom handles, forcing naked male prisoners to form human pyramids, guards urinating on prisoners, forcing prisoners to smear themselves with feces, and subjecting prisoners to forced masturbation.

The presence of cameras in prison facilities had many Washington insiders wondering if the gay S&M prostitution ring centered in the White House had access to pornographic videos from torture centers such as Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay.

Bush dodges unscripted meeting with Germans, possible terrorist threat

With a Hush and a Whisper, Bush Drops Town Hall Meeting with Germans

During his trip to Germany on Wednesday, the main highlight of George W. Bush's trip was meant to be a "town hall"-style meeting with average Germans. But with the German government unwilling to permit a scripted event with questions approved in advance, the White House has quietly put the event on ice. Was Bush afraid the event might focus on prickly questions about Iraq and Iran rather than the rosy future he's been touting in Europe this week?

US President George W. Bush arrived in Frankfurt on Wednesday morning. He won't be meeting with the people here, but he will be meeting with a handpicked bunch of Germany's future business and political leaders.

The much-touted American-style "town hall" meeting the White House has been planning with "normal Germans" of everyday walks of life will be missing during his visit to the Rhine River hamlet of Mainz this afternoon. A few weeks ago, the Bush administration had declared that the chat -- which could have brought together tradesmen, butchers, bank employees, students and all other types to discuss trans-Atlantic relations -- would be the cornerstone of President George W. Bush's brief trip to Germany.


News about Mainz causes some security jitters
Arrest of terror suspects, explosion at German military base precede Bush's visit to the city

11. Februar 2005 F.A.Z. Weekly. Mainz, the central German city on the Rhine, is the home of Johannes Gutenberg, the father of the printing press, and raucous Mardi Gras celebrations. But since President George W. Bush decided in January to visit the city on Feb. 23, Mainz has also become known for news that has raised some worries about security.

The latest incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon, when an explosion rocked a German military base in the city. The blast in a food lab killed one solider and injured two.

Immediately after the explosion, German Defense Minister Peter Struck rushed to the scene and addressed the issue that he said was particularly important: the security of the city that Bush plans to visit. He said officials had definitely ruled out an attack as a source of the blast. Instead, the investigation is focusing on the possibility that natural gas triggered the explosion, officials said. ”The German military has suffered a tragic accident,” Struck said.

Mount St. Helens Bubbling and Boiling

By UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL

Published February 23, 2005


MOUNT ST. HELENS, Washington -- Mount St. Helens has shown an upswing in volcanic activity over the past two days, U.S. volcano scientists reported.

Small collapses of hot rock from the south end of the lava dome -- which is growing at a rate of about 15 feet per day -- have sent several ash clouds upward and over the rim of the mile-wide crater, according to U.S. Geological Survey scientists at Johnston Ridge Observatory, about five miles northeast of the volcano.

About 3 a.m. Tuesday, scientists said they detected a seismic signal and witnessed a bright glow inside the crater that persisted for about 15 minutes. The glow apparently resulted from the collapse of material at the top of the lava dome, which for that brief time exposed hot rock from deeper inside the mountain.

The last major eruption at Mount St. Helens occurred in May 1980, when the volcano lost nearly a quarter-mile of its elevation. The latest activity, which began last Oct. 11, is not expected to result in a comparable event, scientists said

Bilderberg de Hoop Scheffer: Question was too difficult for Bush

Yahoo! News - Bush Prematurely Closes News Conference

But NATO (news - web sites) Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer wasn't quite ready to wrap things up — especially since the reporter had specifically directed a question to him. "Let me ..." he started to say.

"I'm sorry," Bush said — twice — then turned to humor to get himself out of the jam.

He pretended the NATO leader had flashed a universal hand motion signaling he didn't want to answer.

"You don't know what this means?" Bush joked to reporters, giving his ear lobe a quick tug. "That means 'end the press conference.'"

De Hoop Scheffer went along. "I signaled to the president this was too difficult a question," he said.

But he took his chance to answer, nonetheless. After a several-sentence statement, de Hoope Scheffer concluded the session with the customary thank-you.

Still, Bush couldn't resist having the last word.

"Now we're finished," he said.

Harper says Canada part of missile defence

CBC News: Harper says Canada part of missile defence

"The government through the backdoor entered us enough into missile defence to probably satisfy minimal American expectations," Harper said on Tuesday.

"The disappointment I have as a Canadian is that I don't think Canada is really getting any influence or any benefits out of the way the government's done this."

Harper said Canadian and American officials have already made it clear that Canada is in missile defence.

"What we really don't know is how far we are in," Harper said.

Jerusalem Now Under Full Masonic Control

Article From Jerry Golden's Current Reports

This picture was taken by a friend while in Eilat recently. It is on the road that crosses the border and one of the first things a visitor sees when coming from Egypt into Israel. I have written about the involvement of Freemasonry in the Israeli Government mainly through the Supreme Court and the Knesset. But this makes a clear statement to anyone crossing the border into Israel that the Illuminati (or freemasons) are in control here.

"He Stomped terra"

Thompson “took his life with a gunshot to the head,” the wife and son said in a statement released to the Aspen Daily News. The statement asked for privacy for Thompson’s family and, using the Latin term for Earth, added, “He stomped terra.”

Neither the family statement nor Pitkin County sheriff’s officials said whether Thompson left a note. The sheriff and the county coroner did not immediately return telephone messages Monday.


The Coroner in Pitkin County, CO responsible for the final verdict on HST's death is Steve Ayers.

Hunter S. Thompson Knew About CIA Sex-Cult, Book Alleges

This is about as far down the rabbit hole as most people wish to go - it might be that the Hunter S. Thompson "suicide" is related to the whole Guckert/Gannon saga. Thompson's "Gonzo" journalism, where he immersed himself in the story, may have gone too far. This book by DeCamp, while not easy reading, has an interesting final line. The testimony by Paul Bonacci, a victim of the Franklin Scandal who was awarded millions in compensation, discusses a "Hunter Thompson", although it is likely a code name. This is not an attempt to smear HST after his death, only to present possibly relevant information for those who are not convinced that his death was self-inflicted. If HST was really involved to the extent that DeCamp's book alleges (and if indeed HST's name is actually referring to HIM) then there is a possible blackmail motive behind the suicide, assuming HST pulled the trigger.





Voxfux

Victims of King and his associates also charged him with participating in at least one satanic ritual murder of a child.

As DeCamp reports, victim-witness Paul Bonacci was at one point taken to a retreat for political elites such as George Bush and Henry Kissinger in Northern California called Bohemian Grove, where they were forced to participate in sex and to consume parts of a child whom they had watched being murdered by the cultists.

As DeCamp writes:
“A ‘snuff” pornography film was made of these events; it was directed by a man the party had picked up in Las Vegas whom Paul identified as “Hunter Thompson”—the same name as a well known sleaze-culture figure.

Edmonton, Canada vs. Washington, D.C.

I saw this in the print edition of the local rag, the Edmonton Journal. A rather intellectual couple has an interesting comparison between life in the Great White North and life in the US Capital. Thanks for putting us on that list of "unprotected" areas in the proposed missile shield, yankees.

Journal
Six months after moving across the Canadian border, choosing Edmonton over Las Vegas, the American couple say their first impressions about Edmonton proved correct. It is still the laid-back, welcoming, somewhat gritty city it appeared to be in April.

Denham, who grew up in Moscow, Idaho, and Freydberg, born and raised in suburban Chicago, met in 2002 during an anthropology seminar at Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University. Denham, now 29, was starting his anthropology doctorate while Freydberg was finishing up her master's degree. When Freydberg headed to D.C. for work, Denham decided to go with her. But after a year and a half of living with an hour-long daily commute for Denham, the couple decided they'd had enough of the U.S. capital. "On top of that, I'm not a big fan of the government or Bush or any of the administration or a lot of the directions that the U.S. government is going," Denham said. "Everything from the way they do scientific research and suppress data and research -- it's just becoming a totalitarian, fascist state."

The ChoicePoint Dialectic

If history follows a dialectical process, here's how the recent "theft" of 145,000 personal data file fits into the picture.

Hegelian Dialectic
Simply put, the dialectical method involves the notion that the form of historical movement (process or progress), is the result of conflicting opposites. This area of Hegel's thought has been broken down in terms of the categories of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. Hegel's philosophy of history embraces the concept that a conflict of opposites is a struggle between actual and potential worlds.



THESIS: NATIONAL ID CARDS

ANTITHESIS: FAULTY DATABASES, AIRPORT INCONVENIENCES, ETC.

SYNTHESIS: ?


Washington Dispatch
Considering the capacity now being utilized by our government through these private, unrestrained information gathering companies, it is obvious that whether Americans like it or not, our government at all levels can already access more personal information about us than we can remember about ourselves.

This prompts me to wonder why we can’t enact laws which require biometrically verifiable ID cards for all of us. Think of getting through those long airport lines. Such cards would also allow employers to verify citizenship, avoiding the hiring of illegal immigrants. And the homeland security of such cards would be hugely enhanced.

Folks, the privacy question of whether or not to have a personal ID card is totally moot. Last week, as I watched my diminutive septuagenarian wife remove her shoes and have her handbag probed by a pleasant, but persistent TSA employee at an airport, I again wondered why we don’t avoid the grief of these groping handlers at airports, and the delays inherent in not having quick verifiable ID for American citizens. Sensenbrenner’s bill is only a start, but we can only hope House leadership can keep its promise to Representative Sensenbrenner and that the open border crowd in the US Senate won’t kill it! Anyone, particularly our government, can now find out anything about you it want to know, so why not have the protection against terrorism and the capacity for an employer or a voting booth official to tell whether someone is here legally?

The Ignored 9-11 ChoicePoint Connection

Fintan Dunne
In fact, recently revealed documents, and a close study of small details made public in the course of the 9/11 commission’s study, show that the F.B.I. may have been several phone calls away from burrowing into the plot in late August 2001.

In a little-noticed exchange at the commission’s hearings this spring between commission member John Lehman and former F.B.I. official Thomas Pickard, the bureau’s acting director in the summer before the attacks, Mr. Lehman asked Mr. Pickard (according to the official transcript): "As you know, very shortly after the September 11th attack, some of the commercial databases like Axion, ICSO (ph), ChoicePoint, so forth were queried and nearly all of the 19 hijackers were very prominently covered, with addresses, credit cards, locations et cetera. Why did not the F.B.I. make use of those commercial databases before 9/11?"

Data on Americans stolen, nobody cares

It seems that the company responsible for the 2000 Florida Election purge is at the center of a brewing controversy.

Salon.com
Dec. 4, 2000 If Vice President Al Gore is wondering where his Florida votes went, rather than sift through a pile of chad, he might want to look at a "scrub list" of 173,000 names targeted to be knocked off the Florida voter registry by a division of the office of Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris. A close examination suggests thousands of voters may have lost their right to vote based on a flaw-ridden list that included purported "felons" provided by a private firm with tight Republican ties.

Early in the year, the company, ChoicePoint, gave Florida officials a list with the names of 8,000 ex-felons to "scrub" from their list of voters. But it turns out none on the list were guilty of felonies, only misdemeanors. The company acknowledged the error, and blamed it on the original source of the list -- the state of Texas.

Health and Energy
The mad rush to install unverifiable computer voting is driven by the Help America Vote Act, signed by Bush last year. The chief lobbying group pushing for HAVA was a consortium of arms dealers - those disinterested corporate citizens - including Northop-Grumman and Lockheed-Martin. The bill also mandates that all states adopt the computerized "ineligible voter purge" system which Jeb used to eliminate 91,000 ***eligible*** black voters from the Florida rolls in 2000. The Republican-run private company that accomplished this electoral miracle, ChoicePoint, is bagging the lion's share of the new Bush-ordered purge contracts.

MSNBC
"Even though you might not have heard of ChoicePoint, they've heard of you. They are playing a role in your people's lives whether they know it or not," he said.
Privacy consultant Larry Ponemon, who operates the Ponemon Institute, said he was surprised criminals were able to pose as ChoicePoint clients.
"What really concerns me is when low-tech methods are used to gain access, than you really have problems," said. "Obviously this is very surprising, given that they are in the data business."

Chicago-Sun-Times

ChoicePoint, based in Alpharetta, Ga., is a spinoff of the credit-reporting giant Equifax. ChoicePoint maintains databases that hold 19 billion Social Security numbers, credit and medical histories, motor vehicle registrations, job applications, lawsuits, criminal files, professional licenses and other sensitive information.

ChoicePoint also owns a DNA analysis lab and facilitates drug testing for employers.

But ChoicePoint and other privately owned aggregators of personal information operate with virtually no federal oversight, and critics say the companies haven't done enough to safeguard their information databases.

FBI File:
Do I Have an FBI File? If you are an adult citizen of the United States, or if, after 1996, you have ever applied for credit, you have an FBI File. At that time the FBI spent millions with ChoicePoint Inc. to buy information on virtually all adults living in the United States with any credit or public record history. ChoicePoint, formerly a part of credit-reporting company Equifax, is a database compiler selling personal information for a profit. Using your Social Security number as the key identifier, ChoicePoint compiles dossiers on citizens from credit reports, and from public records such as court files, property tax documents, business incorporation filings, and professional license applications. ChoicePoint aggregates this up-to-date information and sells it to the FBI. Following below is a list of the other most common areas of collection:

All those ever arrested and booked into custody - a police record

Suspected organized crime members

Government employees

Immigrants who have become U. S. citizens

All those with Green Cards

Foreign nationals in the United States

Every person involved in counter-intelligence

Members of recognized 'hate groups'

Politicians

Professionals fingerprinted for their profession, example: stock brokers; realtors

Close associates of the above listed categories of people.
