IRAQI Genocide for OIL
Long before the war in Iraq started, March 2001 to be exact, an energy task force led by Vice President Dick Cheney was studying maps of Iraq's oil assets. The maps and charts that we have obtained show Iraqi oilfields, refineries, pipelines, countries interested in doing business in Iraq, as well as the cost and status of existing projects. The context, the source, and why these documents have been released is open for speculation. The mere fact that these things were considered and discussed in detail long before the war is disturbing.
If you have any insights or can shed more light on these documents please contact jar2.

REPOST: The Murder for Bucks Rolls On in Iraq:93/
"Operation Scorpion" The Pipeline;
Next Iran and Then Syria
By John Robles II (jar2)
So apparently the big news of the day is that George Bush lied when he said he did not want to go to war and now the New York Times has published that fact as if it is one of the great scoops of the century. Every liberal blogger and anyone who has not been living with their head in the sand or under a rock for the past six years could have told you that very fact years ago, and the sad part is that they have. We have, and it has taken them, the major mass media this long to finally decide to publish something akin to the truth.
What is surprising for me is that people are making such a fuss about something so insignificant as that one lie and that not one of the major papers is doing anything to cover or delve into the greater and blacker lies that surround the whole 9-11 Iraq/War on Terror fiasco.
We all know about the American Plan for the New Millennium, (if you have not heard about it do a web search), and we all know that they, (The Bush clan/Cheney/Halliburton), are all getting filthy rich as a result, we have all heard about Bush's "trifecta" statement, Bush's plan to avenge the attempt on his father's life, the Saudi-Bush oil/business partnership, etc. etc. etc.. What most people are not aware of, as it has only been published in well-documented-detail on the web, from where it too has all but vanished, is that the planned invasion of Iraq and Iran were all drawn up by Rumsfeld, then Defense Secretary Dick Cheney and the then Defense Undersecretary for Policy Paul Wolfowitz way back in the summer of 1990. One of the original plans, "Operation Scorpion", called for U.S. troops to attack Iraq from Saudi Arabia. Since that time and during the past three years there have appeared in the press hundreds of references to "Operation Scorpion" but all appearing to a more or less degree to be nothing more than disinformation or "Psy-Ops" pieces planted on mostly U.S. Military run web sites.
What "Operation Scorpion" really appears to be is the U.S. plan for the invasion, division, and eventual total control of the Middle East, this includes the required and already planned for invasion of Iran, and the taking control of Syria.
What is the reason for all of this, is it religious? Is it really in order to spread American style democracy throughout the region? Are those countries really so "Evil" as to warrant the killing of hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions of innocent civilians? No, no, and no. Try again.
It is in the press everyday, a piece here, a piece there, a corrupt politician arrested there, a CIA agent burned here, and on and on ad nauseam. What the people are missing and why George W Bush, incompetent-heritage-boy, was put in the White House in the first place, yes, "put", both elections were a farce, was to allow those with the real money and power to advance their plan. And what may that plan be? Hold on a sec and I will tell you, but first let us not forget that it is multi-pronged. Part of the plan allows for the building up of the U.S. Military Industrial Complex, which was seeing a significant downsizing during Clinton's Administration. He was hated by many at the Pentagon, remember, Monica? She was sent over from there. The other allows for the taking away of the rights and freedoms of Americans, especially minorities and other "unsavory" parts of the population, the reasons for this I will not go into right now, and the third, albeit primary reason is... Are you ready for this? The real reason is quite simply, drum-roll, an OIL PIPELINE. Yes, that's right humble-peace-loving-intelligent-folks, an oil pipeline.
You heard about the Bush families extensive ties to big oil and the Saudis, you know about Condo Rice's CEO position at Exxon, you know there is an Exxon oil tanker with her name on it, you know about Halliburton's oil interests and military support divisions. You know about Bin Laden a.k.a. Tom Osman (CIA Agent). You put all of that together and the myriad other facts all floating around out there and it should all begin to make sense.
Look at the map for a minute. When Afghanistan was invaded there were news stories about an oil-pipeline project that got back under way right after the invasion. The news stories talked about a pipeline to the Caspian Sea, that is just part of the story. Look at the map. There are also plans for a pipeline through Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, into the Arabian Sea, this one would lie in the lowlands in the Western parts of these countries. Now those are all nice and sweet but the doozy and the big one would connect the West and possibly even China with loads and loads of Middle Eastern and central Asian oil. Possibly even Russian oil. The pipeline would connect Middle Eastern and Central Asian oil fields with the Mediterranean and would run through the relatively flat Northern Terrain of Iran passing just South of Tehran, past Kirkuk and Mosul in Northern Iraq and come out near the nice deep Super-Tanker friendly waters of the Mediterranean Sea near the Lebanese/Syrian border.
Yes folks, people are dying left and right and the country is going into debt, all for a pipeline. But not for long though. Once that American controlled oil starts flowing, in about ten years time, the dollar will once again become the currency of international choice, and more importantly the currency of the oil trade. The U.S. will control the world's oil and all the fat cats' progenies will forever live in comfort. For that American soldiers are dying, Muslims are being demonized, women and children are being slaughtered, the Constitution is being used as toilet paper, and an mad megalomaniac mass murdering blithering idiot is making a mockery of the office of President.
That is the way I see it. See you all later.

Bush is Responsible for Guantanamo Bay Suicides of Men Being Illegally Held/That's MURDER
Anything he tries to say is pure hypocritical nonsense. These men have been held for about four and a half years without charges, without rights, and without hope.

Allegations against 250 Soldiers have been addressed in courts-martial, non-judicial punishments, and other adverse administrative punishments. The highest ranking military member judicially punished in connection with the death of a detainee is Marine Major Clarke Paulus, who was found guilty of maltreatment and dereliction of duty and dismissed from the service.
Reportedly 100-150 individuals have been rendered from U.S. custody to a foreign country known to torture prisoners, including to Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Pakistan;
There are 6 main acknowledged U.S. detention facilities worldwide--3 in Iraq, 2 in Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay;
There are approximately 25 transient facilities - field prisons designed to house detainees only for a short period until they can be released or transferred to a more permanent facility-in Afghanistan and Iraq;

Follow the flow of the dough, where it leads you already know. More corruption, upon corruption, upon corruption. Yet no one does anything. The shame!
What the president did was write a so-called "signing statement" on the side (unpublicized of course), saying that the new inspector general would have no authority to investigate any contracts or corruption issues involving the Pentagon
What better way to follow that money than an impeachment hearing into why the president unconstitutionally subverted the intent of Congress in establishing an office of special inspector general for corruption in Iraq?

Bush Spokesman Tony Blair says Psychotic Mass-Murderer is Really a "Nice" Guy
Nobody in the world believes Bush anymore, so the dumb assess brought out their new spokesperson in hopes that people will believe Bush's latest claims. Claims to seeking a diplomatic solution in Iran. It is just more disinformation aimed at gaining public support for his failing presidency and his as of yet unrealized plans to invade Iran as he did Iraq. Mr. Blair you soil yourself and the British by supporting the homicidal, psychotic, buffoon who is illegally occupying the White House. I wonder how much Tony got for spreading Bush's disinformation. His own tanker? I have always respected the Brits but when the Prime Minister tries to bolster Bush ratings and acts as nothing but a gimp mouthpiece for the fascist neo-con murder machine I have to call it what it is.

The Attrocities Continue in Iraq: 92/
The Murder of More Women and Children
Chris Floyd's words on the unspeakable shootings of sleeping babies in Iraq.
SEE: The Moscow Times JAR2
We know from the photographs that one child, the youngest, the baby, has a gaping wound in his forehead. We can see that another child, a girl with a pink ribbon in her hair, is lying on her side with blood oozing from the back of her head. The faces of the other children are turned upward toward the sun; if they were shot, they were shot somewhere in the back, and their wounds are not evident. But we can see that their bodies, though covered with dust from the rubble, are otherwise whole; they were evidently not crushed in the collapse of the house. They died in some other fashion.
We know from the photographs that two of the children -- girls, still in their pajamas -- are lying with their dead eyes open. We can see that the light and tenderness that animate the eyes of every young child have vanished; nothing remains but the brute stare of nothingness into nothingness. We can see that the other three children have their eyes closed; two are limp, but the baby has one stiffened arm raised to his cheek, as if trying to ward off the blow that gashed and pulped his face so terribly.
We know that three years ago this week, Bush nevertheless gave the order to begin the unprovoked, unjust and unnecessary invasion of Iraq. He hasn't fired a single shot, tortured any prisoners, beheaded any civilians or planted any bombs. Yet every single atrocity of the war, on both sides, is the direct result of the decision he made three years ago. Nothing he says can change this fact. Nothing he does, or causes to be done, for good or ill, can wash the blood of these children -- and the tens of thousands of other innocent civilians killed in the war -- from his hands.

What's the Deal With Mohammed and 72
The big scandal of the day seems to be some stupid comics of Mohammed which some poor editor lost his job over. Frankly I don't see what the big deal is but then again as an agnostic I guess I wouldn't. I guess you would have to be a fanatical Muslim to be offended. You all know how I feel about the mindless slaughter that is going on in Iraq and you know that second only to George Bush it is what gets me the most but that doesn't mean I support Islam or the psychopathic killers who run around killing innocents in the name of Islam. So I say, "Hey, lighten up already".
Anyway here are the comics that got the poor Dane fired. The one about the virgins had me do a yahoo search for answers and I found 72 more questions that I thought were pretty funny. I just don't get it, if you are Muslim and go to heaven does that mean that shagging in mass quantities forever is allowed? Isn't that kind of Satanic sounding? No offense but it doesn't sound kosher (kidding) to me. Not that the references to murdering deviants in the Old Testament are any better but hey, like let's get real for Christ's sake.

Modern apologists of Islam try to downplay the evident materialism and sexual implications of such descriptions, but, as the Encyclopaedia of Islam says, even orthodox Muslim theologians such as al Ghazali (died 1111 CE) and Al-Ash'ari (died 935 CE) have "admitted sensual pleasures into paradise". The sensual pleasures are graphically elaborated by Al-Suyuti (died 1505 ), Koranic commentator and polymath. He wrote: "Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [ie Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetising vaginas."
One of the reasons Nietzsche hated Christianity was that it "made something unclean out of sexuality", whereas Islam, many would argue, was sex-positive. One cannot imagine any of the Church fathers writing ecstatically of heavenly sex as al-Suyuti did, with the possible exception of St Augustine before his conversion. But surely to call Islam sex-positive is to insult all Muslim women, for sex is seen entirely from the male point of view; women's sexuality is admitted but seen as something to be feared, repressed, and a work of the devil

Muslims are motivated to terrorism because the Koran, the Bible of Islam, tells them that fighting non-believers is a duty of every Muslim and the only way to be certain of going to heaven is to die fighting in the cause of allah.

SAY: KILL THE DICTATOR, and DIE!!!
Ballou, a Santa Rosa Junior College instructor questioned last year by the
Secret Service over a controversial assignment involving President Bush, has
died, the Sonoma County coroner said Tuesday.
The 49-year-old political science instructor died Saturday at his
Guerneville home where he lived alone, Sheriff's Sgt. Will Wallman said.
The cause of his death is under investigation, but detectives have ruled
out homicide, Wallman said. ``There's nothing to say he died at the hands of
another, but otherwise, the book is wide open.''
He said an autopsy has been conducted and authorities await the results
of toxicology and microscopic tissue tests.
A neighbor discovered the body.
Ballou, who also spelled his name Ballow, was a part-time teacher at the
junior college's Petaluma campus and had been on the faculty since 1990.
Ballou was born in Ogden, Utah. He had a master's degree from Brigham
Young University and a bachelor's degree from Weber State College, an SRJC
He became embroiled in controversy in the summer of 2003 when he
assigned students to compose an e-mail with the words ``kill the president''

Ohio Is Set to
Reckon With Outstanding Ballots
Tue Nov 9, 7:55 AM ET Top Stories - Los Angeles Times
By Ralph Vartabedian and Henry Weinstein Times Staff Writers
According to the preliminary tally, which included all domestic absentee
ballots, Sen. John F. Kerry (news, bio, voting record) lost Ohio by 136,483
votes, Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell said.
Attorneys for the Kerry campaign said Monday that they did not believe
the outcome of the Ohio vote which gave President Bush (news - web sites)
the electoral votes needed to win could possibly change; they have
discouraged speculation that voting irregularities caused Kerry's loss.
Nonetheless, the Ohio count is attracting scrutiny by groups who say the
election was tainted and that voting equipment in Ohio, Florida, South
Carolina and elsewhere was defective. On Friday, three congressional
Democrats asked for a federal investigation.
Since the election, Internet sites and political blogs have buzzed with
speculation that the vote was manipulated. "Evidence mounts that the vote
may have been hacked," reads the title of one widely circulated Web
Voting machine failures did occur, and long lines in heavily Democratic
precincts discouraged some potential voters. Still, a broad range of experts
said that the final vote counts in Ohio and other states could not possibly
change the outcome.
Among those was Cleveland attorney Mark Griffin, who played a key role in
the Kerry campaign's voter protection efforts in that area.
After meeting Monday with Michael Vu, head of the Board of Elections in
Ohio's Cuyahoga County, Griffin said: "This is really not about changing the
outcome. It is about making sure every vote counts, particularly people who
waited in line three hours."
The 2004 Ohio vote was not nearly as close as the disputed Florida results
If all provisional votes are deemed valid, Kerry would need 88% of them
to overcome Bush's margin of victory in Ohio, assuming the remaining
overseas absentee ballots were split evenly.
But many provisional ballots will probably be tossed out. In past
elections, about 10% were judged as not coming from legitimately registered
voters. What's more, Blackwell ruled before the election that provisional
ballots had to be cast in the correct precinct, and that any cast at the
wrong polling place would not be counted.
If 10% of the provisional ballots were rejected, Kerry would need to get

"There are a lot of conspiracy theory folks out there thinking that
with a machine problem here and a long-line problem there and the
provisional ballots the result is in doubt," said Edward J. Foley, a
professor at Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law. "I have seen
nothing to indicate that the result is in doubt."
But, Foley said, the election revealed problems that needed to be
Counting of the provisional ballots is expected to begin Saturday,
although state law allows counties to delay the canvass until Nov. 18, said
James Lee, Secretary of State spokesman. Ohio, however, faces a Dec. 7
deadline to finish this process so that its electors can cast their
electoral college votes Dec. 13.
Under state law, each county will examine its provisional ballots, which
are in sealed envelopes. Before opening the envelopes, a team of elections
officials split evenly between declared Democrats and Republicans will
decide whether the voter who cast the ballot was registered by the early
October deadline and voted in the correct precinct.
After all provisional ballots have been allowed or rejected, the
envelopes will be opened, Lee said. "Our system is designed to be bipartisan
in every aspect," he said.
irregularities and problems have cropped up nonetheless.
On Friday, officials in Franklin County which includes state capital
Columbus acknowledged that they may have improperly counted votes for Bush
because of a touch-screen voting system malfunction. A precinct in the
county reported that a 4,000-vote margin won by Bush appeared to exceed the
number of registered voters.
The touch-screen system in Franklin County is among the oldest and least
reliable electronic voting machines in use, said David Dill, a Stanford
University computer expert.
Asked how an electronic voting machine could run up nearly 4,000 extra
votes, Dill said a variety of factors, including an internal misalignment or
static electricity, could cause such an error.
"The point is that these machines are nowhere near reliable enough to
depend on," Dill said.
Based on reports that Dill's organization Verified Voting.org has
received, one precinct in Youngstown, Ohio, recorded a negative 25 million
votes, which was discarded from official results. And it was widely reported
after Nov. 2 that a North Carolina precinct lost 4,000 votes when a
recording device used up all its memory but voters continued to cast ballots
on the machine.

Exit polls and actual results dont match; Evoting
states show greater discrepancy Filed under: General site admin @ 11:04 am
Email This An analysis of the original AP exit polling, which showed Kerry
with a tighter margin and leading in myriad states, raises serious questions
about the authenticity of the popular vote in several key states, RAW STORY
has learned. Since the actual outcome of the votes have been called, AP has
all of their exit polling to tighten the margin. A reason has not been
given. The analysis, first conducted by a poster at the popular Democratic
Underground, suggests possible voter fraud in states that do not have
electronic voting receipts, and those that limit the medias access to
polls. Two inquiries placed by RAW STORY with the media contact for the
six-network exit polling consortium at NBC News has received no response.
The curious result comes after the head of Diebold, which produces much of
the nations electronic voting machines, told Republicans in a recent
fund-raising letter that he is committed to helping Ohio deliver its
electoral votes to the president next year. An exit poll involves asking
someone after they walk out of the election booth who they voted for. While
not a guide for proving results, it can be a mechanism for ensuring voting
accuracy and flagging potential fraud. Exit polls were recently used in
Venezuela to ensure the vote was accurate and legitimate. Perhaps more
importantly, while exit polling is unreliable, the odds of President Bush
having gaining an advantage from every exit poll in swing states is an
extremely improbable coincidence. In Florida, Bush led exit polling by CNNs
exit polling consortium by just 5355 votes (when the exit polling
information is multiplied by the actual vote). Yet he led by 326,000 in the
end result. This morning, CNN changed their exit polling to favor Bush,
saying that had overweighted African American voters. In Wisconsin, where
exit polls put Kerry up seven percent, Bush has a lead of one percent, an
unexplained difference of eight percent. In New Mexico, Kerry led Bush by
3.8 percent, yet Bush leads Kerry by 3 percent in actual reported voting. In
Minnesota, where a new law sharply restricts reporters access to polls,
Kerry led 9.6 percent in exit polling. Actual voting counts found that Bush
trailed by 5 percent, with a 5 percent discrepancy favoring Bush. Ohio,
which does have paper trail capability but does not mandate receipts, had
exits showed Kerry and Bush in a dead heat; in the near-final results, Bush
led by three percent. Exit polls put Kerry up by 8 percent in Michigan;
actual results show Bush trailing by just 3 percent.Nevada, which also has
electronic voting though should have mandated paper trails, had a variance
of 4.2 percent. Kerry led the exit polls by 1.2 percent, while Bush led
reported votes by 3 percent.Two states with paper trails for voting were
within 0.5 percent margin of error.New Hampshire, which has electronic
voting but provides verified receipts, exit polling is within 0.1 percent of
the actual vote. Kerry led by 3 percent in exit polling, and 2.9 percent in
the actual vote.Maine, the final state for which analysis of exit polling
was conducted before the AP resampled their data, was in the Kerry column
by 7.5 percent; the end result put Kerry up 8 percent, a variance of 0.5
percent. Maine has no electronic voting.Kerry does not gain by any
significant margin in actual voting in any state for which analysis has been
conducted, RAW STORY found. Exit polling accurately predicted the results in
most states with very little error. Where there were discrepancies, they
were significant in the +5 percent range, and always favored Bush.
Allegations of voter fraud is not new to President Bush. On November 12,
2000, the Washington Post ran an article suggesting anomalies in the hotly
constested state of Florida. Something very strange happened on election
night to Deborah Tannenbaum, a Democratic Party official of Volusia County.
At 10 p.m., she called the county elections department and found that Al
Gore was leading George W. Bush 83,000 votes to 62,000 votes. But when she
checked the countys Web site for an update half an hour later, she found a
startling development: Gores count had dropped by 16,000 votes, while an
obscure Socialist candidate had picked up 10,000 all because of a single
precinct with only 600 voters. Early returns from Florida showed the Green
Party candidate leading President Bush and Sen. Kerry in two Ohio counties.
They later appeared corrected, but raised eyebrows among liberal bloggers.

Global monitors find faults
By Thomas Crampton International Herald Tribune
Wednesday, November 3, 2004
implications of the U.S. election are undeniable, but international monitors
at a polling station in southern Florida said Tuesday that voting procedures
being used in the extremely close contest fell short in many ways from the
best global practices.
The observers said they had less access to polls than in Kazakhstan,
that the electronic voting had fewer fail-safes than in Venezuela, that the
ballots were not so simple as in the Republic of Georgia and that no other
country had such a complex national election system.
"To be honest, monitoring elections in Serbia a few months ago was much
simpler," said Konrad Olszewski, an election observer stationed in Miami by
the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
"They have one national election law and use the paper ballots I really
prefer over any other system," Olszewski said.
Olszewski, whose democratic experience began with Poland's first free
election in 1989, is one of 92 observers brought in by the Vienna-based
organization, which was founded to maintain military security in Europe at
the height of the Cold War.
Two-member observer teams have fanned out across 11 states and include
citizens of 36 countries, ranging from Canada and Switzerland to Latvia,
Kyrgyzstan, Slovenia and Belarus.
Formation of the U.S. election mission came after the State Department
issued a standard letter on June 9 inviting the group to monitor the
All 55 states in the organization have, since 1990, agreed to invite
observation teams to their national elections.
The decision to observe a presidential election for the first time was
made because of the changes prompted by controversy over the U.S. elections
in 2000, involving George W. Bush and Al Gore.
"Our presence is not meant as a criticism," said Ron Gould, Olszewski's
team partner and the former assistant chief electoral officer for Elections
Canada. "We mainly want to assess changes taken since the 2000 election."
Speaking as voting began at 7 a.m. in the Firefighter's Memorial Hall
for precincts 401 and 446 of Miami-Dade County, the observers drew sharp
distinctions between U.S.-style elections and those conducted elsewhere
around the world.
"Unlike almost every other country in the world, there is not one
national election today," said Gould, who has been involved in 90 election
missions to 70 countries. "The decentralized system means that rules vary
widely county-by-county, so there are actually more than 13,000 elections
Variations in local election law not only make it difficult for election
monitors to generalize on a national basis, but also prohibit the observers
from entering polling stations at all in some states and counties. Such laws
mean that no election observers from the OSCE are in Ohio, a swing state
fraught with battles over voter intimidation and other polling issues.
As for electronic voting, Gould said he preferred Venezuela's system
over the calculator-sized touchpads in Miami.
"Each electronic vote in Venezuela also produces a ticket that voters
then drop into a ballot box," Gould said. "Unlike fully electronic systems,
this gives a backup that can be used to counter claims of massive fraud."
Venezuela had trouble implementing the system, Gould added, because the
ticket printers kept breaking down.
The United States is also nearly unique in lacking a unified voter
registration system or national identity card, Gould said, adding that he
would ideally require U.S. voters to dip a finger in an ink bowl or have a
cuticle stained black after voting.
"In El Salvador, Namibia and so many other elections, the ink was
extremely important in preventing challenges to multiple voting," Gould
said. "In Afghanistan it didn't work so well because they used the dipping
ink for the cuticles, so it wiped right off."
To observe elections in Florida, Gould and his partner first stopped to
meet state election officials in Tallahassee.
Their visit to Miami included failed attempts to witness election
preparations at two polling stations on Monday evening. After a two-hour
drive through heavy traffic, the observers found both polling stations
"In Venezuela we drove around to all the polling stations ahead of time
to make sure this didn't happen," Gould said. "Here we consider studying the
system more important than looking at actual voting."
Indeed, the team left the Miami polling station little more than half an
hour after voting began to make a live interview scheduled on CNN. Media
relations has become a major part of their mission, with reporters mobbing
the monitors at every stop in Florida and a Japanese television crew from
NTV tailing them across the state since Friday.
"There is a lot of interest in Japan where this election observation is
seen as a kind of satire," said Fumi Kobayashi, the New York-based
correspondent for NTV. "So strange to imagine Europeans coming to monitor
elections in the U.S., don't you think?"
A selection of voters and election officials questioned as they left the
Miami polling station said they mainly found the election monitors
"The United States has long been a model for the world," said Richard
Williams, a poll-watcher officially designated by the Democratic Party. "If
we allow international observers we will continue to have a leading role."
Not everyone agrees. Jeff Miller, a Republican congressman from Florida,
considers the monitors an insult and has publicly urged them to leave. "Get
on the next plane out of the United States to go monitor an election
somewhere else, like Afghanistan," he said.
Notes taken by the observers, which Gould said often take up just a few
pages from his pocket-sized reporter's notebook, will be fed into a national
assessment issued by the organization two days after the election. Following
standard procedure for all elections, a more detailed report will be issued
one month later.

CCiting July Speech, I.R.S. Decides to Review N.A.A.C.P.
By MICHAEL JANOFSKY
Published: October 29, 2004
ASHINGTON, Oct. 28 - The Internal Revenue Service has begun reviewing the tax-exempt status of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, citing concerns over a speech given by its chairman, Julian Bond, at its annual convention last July in Philadelphia.
In a letter dated Oct. 8 and released Thursday, the I.R.S. told the association it had received information that Mr. Bond conveyed "statements in opposition of George W. Bush for the office of presidency" and specifically that he had "condemned the administration policies of George W. Bush in education, the economy and the war in Iraq."
The letter reminded the association that tax-exempt organizations are legally barred from supporting or opposing any candidate for elective office.
Mr. Bond's speech on July 11 included a long section that sharply criticized the Republican Party, Mr. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for their positions on an array of issues important to black Americans.
In an interview Thursday, Mr. Bond defended his remarks, saying they focused on policy, not politics.
"This is an attempt to silence the N.A.A.C.P. on the very eve of a presidential election," he said. "We are best known for registering and turning out large numbers of African-American voters. Clearly, someone in the I.R.S. doesn't want that to happen."
He added, "It's Orwellian to believe that criticism of the president is not allowed or that the president is somehow immune from criticism."
I.R.S. officials said they could not discuss the specifics of any case. But Mark W. Everson, the agency's commissioner, issued a statement denying that the agency's interest in the group was politically motivated.
"The I.R.S. follows strict procedures involving the selection of tax-exempt organizations for audit and resolution of any complaints about such groups," Mr. Everson said. "Career civil servants, not political appointees, make these decisions in a fair, impartial manner. Any suggestion that the I.R.S. has tilted its audit activities for political purposes is repugnant and groundless."
The N.A.A.C.P. is hardly the first organization to raise questions about I.R.S. actions around an election. In the 1990's, so many organizations accused the I.R.S. of engaging in politically motivated examinations that the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation reviewed all examination data for tax-exempt organizations between 1990 and 1998. It found "no credible evidence" of wrongdoing by the agency or the Clinton administration.
Mr. Bond, who has been chairman of the N.A.A.C.P. for six years, said he knew of no other time the I.R.S. had challenged the 95-year-old association's tax status on political grounds.
Mr. Bond said that the association had a chilly relationship with Mr. Bush, who declined to speak at its last four annual conventions, and that black voters were worried that the problems that kept thousands of them from voting in 2000 could recur this year in Florida and elsewhere.
With association officials now immersed in efforts to register new voters and to make sure early voting proceeds smoothly, he said the I.R.S. request was placing new financial and personnel demands on the group.
The I.R.S. has asked it to provide a written response that includes detailed financial information about its 2004 convention, personal information about its 64 board members and relevant information about Mr. Bond's speech.
"Of course, we're concerned," Mr. Bond said. "I feel we'll be vindicated in the end because we have not violated any I.R.S. rules or regulations. But this takes a great deal of effort and money to defend and could take up to two years to resolve."

SEE: BIN LADEN FOR BUSH
CAIRO, Egypt - Osama bin Laden (news - web sites), injecting himself into the campaign four days ahead of presidential elections, said in a videotape aired Friday that the United States can avoid another Sept. 11 attack if it stops threatening the security of Muslims.
Slideshow: Osama bin Laden & al-Qaida
In the segment broadcast, the al-Qaida leader refrained from directly threatening new attacks, although he said "there are still reasons to repeat what happened."
"Your security is not in the hands of Kerry, Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your own hands," bin Laden said, referring to the president and his Democratic opponent. "Any state that does not mess with our security, has naturally guaranteed its own security."
Admitting for the first time that he ordered the Sept. 11 attacks, bin Laden said he did so because of injustices against the Lebanese and Palestinians by Israel and the United States.
In what appeared to be conciliatory language, bin Laden said he wanted to explain why he ordered the suicide airline hijackings that hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon (news - web sites) so Americans would know how to act to prevent another attack.
"To the American people, my talk is to you about the best way to avoid another Manhattan," he said. "I tell you: Security is an important element of human life and free people do not give up their security."
It was the first footage in more than a year of the fugitive al-Qaida leader, thought to be hiding in the mountains along the Pakistan-Afghanistan (news - web sites) border. The video, broadcast on Al-Jazeera television, showed bin Laden with a long gray beard, wearing traditional white robes, a turban and a golden cloak, standing behind a table with papers and in front of a plain, brown curtain.
His hands were steady and he appeared healthy.
The Bush administration said Friday it believes the videotape was authentic and had been made recently. White House press secretary Scott McClellan said the administration did not plan to raise the nation's threat level for now.
A U.S. official in Washington said the 18-minute tape lacks an explicit threat and repeats well-worn themes.
Al-Jazeera broadcast about one minute of the tape. The station's spokesman, Jihad Ali Ballout, said they aired what was "newsworthy and relevant" and refused to describe the unaired portions, including whether they included any threats.
There was no way to determine exactly when the tape was made but it offered evidence that bin Laden was alive and following events. Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) emerged as the Democratic candidate in the spring.
In Florida, Kerry said all Americans are united against bin Laden, adding he would "stop at absolutely nothing to hunt down, capture or kill the terrorists wherever they are, whatever it takes, period."
Bin Laden accused President Bush (news - web sites) of misleading Americans by saying the attack was carried out because al-Qaida "hates freedom." Bin Laden said his followers have left alone countries that do not threaten Muslims.
"We fought you because we are free ... and want to regain freedom for our nation. As you undermine our security we undermine yours," he said.
He said he was first inspired to attack the United States by the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon in which towers and buildings in Beirut were destroyed in the siege of the capital.
"While I was looking at these destroyed towers in Lebanon, it sparked in my mind that the tyrant should be punished with the same and that we should destroy towers in America, so that it tastes what we taste and would be deterred from killing our children and women," he said.
"God knows that it had not occurred to our mind to attack the towers, but after our patience ran out and we saw the injustice and inflexibility of the American-Israeli alliance toward our people in Palestine and Lebanon, this came to my mind," he said.
Bin Laden suggested Bush was slow to react to the Sept. 11 attacks, giving the hijackers more time than they expected. At the time of the attacks, the president was listening to schoolchildren in Florida reading a book.
"It never occurred to us that the commander-in-chief of the American armed forces would leave 50,000 of his citizens in the two towers to face these horrors alone," he said, referring to the number of people who worked at the World Trade Center.
"It appeared to him (Bush) that a little girl's talk about her goat and its butting was more important than the planes and their butting of the skyscrapers. That gave us three times the required time to carry out the operations, thank God," he said.
In planning the attacks, bin Laden said he told Mohammed Atta, one of the hijackers, that the strikes had to be carried out "within 20 minutes before Bush and his administration noticed."
Bin Laden also said the Bush administration was like repressive Arab regimes "in that half of them are ruled by the military and the other half are ruled by the sons of kings and presidents."
The image of bin Laden reading a statement was dramatically different from the few other videos of the al-Qaida leader that have emerged since the Sept. 11 attacks.
In the last videotape, issued Sept. 10, 2003, bin Laden is seen walking through rocky terrain with his top deputy Ayman al-Zawahri, both carrying automatic rifles. In a taped message issued at the same time, bin Laden praises the "great damage to the enemy" on Sept. 11 and mentions five hijackers by name.
In December 2001, the Pentagon released a videotape in which bin Laden is shown at a dinner with associates in Afghanistan on Nov. 9, 2001, saying the destruction of the Sept. 11 attacks exceeded even his "optimistic" calculations.
But in none of his previous messages, audio or video, did bin Laden directly state that he ordered the attacks.
U.S. authorities have long said they believe bin Laden is hiding in a rugged, mountainous tribal region of Pakistan that borders Afghanistan, but there has been no firm evidence of his whereabouts for three years.
The last audiotape purportedly from bin Laden came in April.

Why would those who are profiting the most from 9-11 want to track down Bin Laden??? 9-11 was made to order for BushCo, George Bush stated he had, hit the trifecta!, regarding the events of 9-11, it should make that clear for everyone, they will not go after Bin Laden, nor will they actually fight an effective war against terror, it goes against their own interests to do so Now we have to ask ourselves; Are people who put their own personal gain, and the advancement of a SECRET AGENDA, ahead of the lives of the American people, worthy of being in power? NO! With the Bushies there is not only the appearance of impropriety, but mountains of evidence pointing to deeds so evil that they defy belief. One of the most startling and irrefutable pieces of evidence that I have seen are photographs which prove an airplane never hit the Pentagon, then there are the thousands of statements, actions, and slips of the tongue, coming at us on a daily basis which point in one direction, yet no one wants to go there, because it defies belief to imagine, that the President of the United States and those who put him in the White House are guilty of involvement in the single most horrific act of terrorism in modern history, orchestrated to allow them to go ahead with their Hidden Agenda, complete world domination just being one aspect of it So Agent TOM OSSMAN aka Osama bin Laden will continue to go free and they will continue to try to stifle dissent, cow us into submission, twist the truth, and pull the wool over our eyes. And dear reader have no doubt, they will do, ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING, to stay in power

Conscience of a Conservative
The New Republic's October 25 issue contains the latest anguished letter from another Republican who has decided to vote for John Kerry. In a truly impassioned plea, New York Post editorial writer Robert A. George lays out a damning case against George Bush for violating the fundamental tenets of conservatism, including fiscal responsibility, smaller government, and accountability for all of the activities of the executive branch, even in a time of "war." (Keep in mind that the New York Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch, the arch conservative media mogul.)
"Conscience of a Conservative":
Robert A. George
The New Republic
Sixteen years ago, just out of college, I volunteered at the Republican National Convention as a man named George Bush prepared to begin a fall campaign that would see him defeat a Democrat from Massachusetts. The sparkling words of an acceptance speech crafted by Peggy Noonanand delivered almost flawlessly--helped him inspire his party and a country that saw him as an extension of Ronald Reagan. It fell to that George Bush to "close out" the cold war and launch a different one in the Persian Gulf.
Now, sixteen years later, after tenures working for the party and a couple of Republican members on Capitol Hill (including a speaker named Newt Gingrich) and becoming an earnest fellow traveler of the conservative movement, I find it impossible to support the current George Bush--whom his party sees as the ideological extension of Ronald Reagan--as he faces his own showdown with a Democrat from Massachusetts and oversees a war centered n the Middle East.
At the Republican National Convention, George W. Bush mocked John Kerry's claim of having "conservative values." But what are conservative values? Two of the core principles at the heart of modern conservatism are a belief in the virtue of smaller government and a conviction that government must be accountable to the public. Those principles were enunciated ten years ago in the Contract with America, which helped Republicans take full control of Congress for the first time in four decades. That document sought "the end of government that is too big, too intrusive, and too easy with the public's money." In this context, Bush's first term has represented a betrayal of conservative values.

"The conservative case for Kerry "
As a former Reagan-administration official, registered Republican, born-again Christian, and traditional conservative, I am going to vote for John Kerry. So are many other old-line Republicans. Here's why.
While the Bush administration calls itself "conservative," its use of the term is frankly Orwellian. It not only deprives the word of meaning, but also presents the administration's philosophy as the opposite of what it actually is.
Conservatives have always believed in fiscal responsibility: in being sure you could pay your way and in providing for the future. Conservatives pay down debt, rather than adding to it. This doesn't necessarily mean balancing the budget every year, but at a minimum it means striving toward balance as a top priority.
The Bush approach is completely at odds with such thinking. If any proof were needed, it was amply provided in the president's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. With Congressional Budget Office projections showing oceans of red ink for the indefinite future, President Bush promised more tax cuts. His audience cheered.
Conservatives are often well off, but they understand that the best way to preserve the society in which they are doing so well is to ensure that all its members can survive at a reasonable standard of living. It was the conservative Otto von Bismarck, after all, who first introduced social-security programs in 19th Century Germany for just that reason.
Conservatives do not loot the Treasury or bet the future health of their society on the chance that the best-case scenario will actually materialize. They provide for the worst case. So a conservative would have expected that the president's tax cuts and promises of more to come would at least have been accompanied by plans for cutting expenditures.
That expectation would have been disappointed, however, as the president promised about $1 trillion of new spending programs that, given his tax cuts, can be paid for only with red ink.
Which brings us to a second fundamental principle of conservatism: small government. From the founding of the Republic until now, conservatives have feared the threat to liberty posed by big government.
Conservative icon Ronald Reagan came to power primarily by focusing on big government as the source of most of the country's problems. But the Bush administration has presided over a steady increase in the size of government, as federal expenditure has risen as a percentage of gross domestic product, after declining in the late 1990s.
Conservatives have never been enthusiastic about foreign adventures or about messianic undertakings. John Adams made the point early in our history when he emphasized that "America does not go abroad to slay dragons."
It was the liberal Democrats Woodrow Wilson and John Kennedy who committed the United States to making the world safe for democracy and to "bearing any burden and paying any price to assure the success of liberty." These are fine-sounding words, but they are not the words of conservatives. Thus, when President Bush promises to democratize the Mideast, conservatives cringe. So much so, in fact, that several former high-ranking officials of the Reagan and first Bush administrations have told me that they are not supporting the president for re-election.
This is because they know that, administration rhetoric to the contrary notwithstanding, we are not safer today than we were three years ago. Far from destroying al-Qaida and cutting its alleged links with Saddam Hussein, we have made Iraq into a magnet for terrorists. Worse, there is a real possibility that Osama bin Laden could gain control of our ally Pakistan, with its nuclear weapons and operational long-range missiles. Safe? Not on your life.
Nor are we freer. Conservatives are nothing if not steadfast defenders of individual rights, rule of law, and due process. Yet the Patriot Act and the procedures at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere have visibly infringed on all of these. It is ironic that even as it preaches about widening the circle of freedom abroad, the administration is reducing it at home.
Before the current campaign, it might have been argued that at least in affirming the importance of faith and respecting those who profess it the administration had embraced traditional conservative views. But in the wake of the Swift Boat ads attacking John Kerry, even this argument can no longer be maintained. As an elder of the Presbyterian Church, I found that those ads were not at all in the Christian tradition. John McCain rightly condemned them as dishonest and dishonorable. The president should have, too. That he did not undermines his credibility on questions of faith.
Some say it's just politics. But that's the whole point. More is expected of people of faith than "just politics."
The fact is that the Bush administration might better be called radical or romantic or adventurist than conservative. And that's why real conservatives are leaning toward Kerry.

Of the 566 People Polled (38% Were Republican, 30% Democrat, 28% Independent) Kerry Won 42%-415
Kerry In Control And Winner
Bob Novak: Kerry seems to be overpowering Bush. [cnn.com, 10/13/04]
Candy Crowley: If what youre looking for in a candidate is the best debater, I mean, that is definitely John Kerry. He has a quick command of the facts, he is very articulate, and I think the poll reflects that. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Ron Reagan: I will predict that the polls tomorrow, just as they have in the two previous presidential debates, will say that Kerry won. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
Pat Buchanan: Kerry was, I thought, very much at the top of his game and I thought toward the end, when you saw Kerry, you saw more of the humanity of the man in some of those questions, which was very helpful to them; talking about the daughters and things. I thought he had some excellent moments. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
John Roberts: I would probably have to give it to John Kerry. He seemed a little bit more poised. [CBS, John Roberts, 10/13/04]
Joe Scarborough: It gave Democrats a reason to be excited about John Kerry. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
Jon Meacham, Newsweek: John Kerry took the populist war straight to the President. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
Tavis Smiley: I think, Peter, that you have to shore up your basesI think Mr. Kerry did that with people of color on the left. [ABC, 10/13/04]
Bill Schneider: Well this was a decisive win for John Kerry. It was just about as decisive as his win in the first debate, which everyone agreed was a blowout. His, the first debate he won by 16 points; this debate, Kerry won by 13 points. According to the views of the viewers polled immediately after the debate so they had no chance really to be influenced by the spin. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Andrea Mitchell: Kerry says, well we all, you know, married above ourselves and some would say, me more than most joking about Teresa Heinz and her extraordinary fortune and I thought that was actually showing a lot of self confidence of John Kerry to joke about that disparity. [MSNBC, 10/13/04
Kerrys Momentum Grew And Grows
David Gergen: "John Kerry, Sen. Kerry gained strength as the debate went on and I thought he became much more effective and if anything I thought the last part of the debate was his." [PBS, 10/13/04]
Carlos Watson: As we went along, as we talked about social security, as we talked about immigration, as we talked even about the Supreme Court, I thought John Kerry ultimately found his voice. And when all is said and done I think Kerry will be proclaimed the winner, which I think will be significant because I think he will be viewed as having won all three debates. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Dean Reynolds: I think the candidate whose numbers have been moving in the right direction for the last 10 days has been Senator John Kerry, this debate did nothing to stop that, and I think from the Kerry point of view theyll be happy about the results tonight. [ABC, 10/13/04]
Anthony Mason: Dan, the uncommitted voters in our survey have given the edge in this debate, to this final debate, to John Kerry. [CBS, 10/13/04]
Kerry Appealed To Voters
David Gergen: "What I thought John Kerry did very effectively tonight was reach out to women voters and they've become critical to his election Charlie, its the bigggest change that's taken place since these debates started. And tonight, I would imagine with the Yankees and Red Sox on, there were probably a lot of women in that audience tonight." [PBS, 10/13/04]
"After viewing two presidential debates, a group of local independent voters has decided whom to support - and will use tonight's face-off simply to make sure they've got it right. Currently, Kerry is the pick of the majority. The Denver Post gathered the five panelists last month to view the debates. At the time, none of them had decided." [Denver Post, 10/13/04]
Seniors Weigh In For Kerry. AARP hosted a debate watch party in Las Vegas they were asked: Which presidential candidate best addressed the issues important to you? 76.2% for John Kerry, 15.1% George W. Bush, 8.7 Draw
Kerry More Presidential
Bill Schneider: Well I think he did appear more presidential than the president, which is exactly why he won the first debate and why he won this debate. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Richard Wolfe: John Kerry has looked more presidential and more personable as these debates have gone on. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Perry Bacon, Time Magazine: And still, Kerry came out looking more presidential [CNN, 10/13/04]
Kerry Clear On Issues
Andrea Mitchell: I think Kerry cleared up any confusion that might have existed about how he as a Catholic was dealing with this very complex issue [abortion]. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
George Stephanopoulos: I thought Senator Kerry was most effective on talking about jobs, minimum wage, healthcare and social security. [ABC, 10/13/04]
"Kerry's answer on health-care costs may be his best yet. He lays out the case against the administration logically and clearly." [Kit Seeyle, New York Times online, 10/13/04]
"In response to the flu vaccine, Bush narrowly focuses on the question and tells people not to get a flu shot. Kerry smartly takes the topic back to health care." [Kit Seeyle, New York Times online, 10/13/04]
Chris Wallace: "I thought perhaps because of the subject matter that John Kerry did better in the second half on subjects like minimum wage which the president seemed somewhat uncomfortable on." [Fox News, 10/13/04]
Mark Shields: I thought Kerry's best answer by far was on the assault weapons. When the President begged off, it was Bob Schieffer's question to him Jim, why didn't you, you said you'd sign it, why didn't you lift a finger to do it, he said well they told me in Congress they didn't have the votes to do it and he said I would have gone to Tom Delay, and said we're going to have a fight, we'll go to the country on this. I thought that was probably Kerry's best answer. [PBS, 10/13/04]
Chris Matthews: Senator Kerry tonight was able to score on the class issue. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
Tom Brokaw: I think that they were seeing on the war issue that John Kerry had tapped into something out there in America. That there were doubts even among the presidents supporters on the Republican side of the agenda and especially in a lot of those traditionally red states where they have a lot of people overseas and beginning to wonder if this was going well or not. So they had to move it; move the agenda, if you will, off the war and harder onto the social issues. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
Bush Fell, Kerry Cleaned-Up
Ron Reagan: George Bush made a mistake. Kerry quoted him accurately as it turns out in saying hes not really worried about Osama bin Laden and Bush came back and said, well I dont recall ever saying anything like that, well youll see the clip of him saying exactly that tomorrow. [MSNBC 10:32 pm]
Mark Shields: I think Kerry is far more factual. [PBS, 10/13/04]
Brian Williams: We heard the name Osama Bin Laden mentioned again tonight and tonight our fact checkers found the President in a major contradiction. Here is what the President said on stage tonight in response to a charge by Sen. Kerry [Bush clip, exaggerations]. But here is what the President said about Bin Laden in March of 2002 [Bush clip saying he is not concerned about Bin Laden]. [NBC, 10/13/04]
Chris Jansing: He painted the president as some one who led us to a misguided war, who has put Americans at risk because they don't have health insurance, who has lost more jobs than any president. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]
Bush Mission To Win Debate: NOT ACCOMPLISHED
George Stephanopoulos: Most Americans believe were going in the wrong direction right now. [ABC, 10/13/04]
Jeff Greenfield: I think to the extent that the Republicans were looking for the president to lay the heavy lumber on John Kerry, that did not happen. And so if weve gone this last ten days with Kerry slowly moving up on Bush, I dont see anything in this debate that will change that. [CNN, 10/13/04]
John King: I do think Republicans will agree that the president was perhaps not emphatic or focused enough in doing as much as he wanted to do to calling the Senate record into play and put the liberal label on Senator Kerry. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Bob Novak: Bush looks wishy-washy on the assault-weapons ban. [cnn.com, 10/13/04]
Richard Wolfe: John Kerry, I thought, took this one by points. The president really needed to get a big victory tonight and he fell short of that. You know, he beat himself in the previous debates, but that really wasnt good enough. [CNN, 10/13/04]
Bushs Expressions Showed His Weakness
"Bush seems more on edge than Kerry. His voice is rising, almost to a shout. And he pounds his hand for emphasis. Kerry is trying to show he is cool, calm and collected." [Kit Seeyle, New York Times online, 10/13/04]
Bob Novak: Bush's chuckles are not so good. [cnn.com, 10/13/04]
Chris Matthews: I think the president had sort of an unhappy look but it was a very controlled and disciplined look. He was obviously told theyre looking at you, dont put on a show. But he didnt look happy. He wasnt used to this kind of brow-beating. [MSNBC, 10/13/04]

The stinking weasel who can not form coherent sentences in even unable to do so when he is wired directly to Karl Rove.
The same situation is observed regarding the ridge that runs from bulge across this right shoulder blade and over his collar bone. Despite his movements the ridge does not move relative to his body, but the suit coat moves relative to it. This element behaves almost identically to the bulge between his shoulder blades and it also appears to be something close fitting and likely secured to his oxford shirt or undershirt.
Additionally, his shoulder blades, collar bone, and spine are not printing properly through his clothing and his clothing is not hanging properly on his frame. This appears to be caused by several milli-meters of stiff ballistic fabric being worn close to his body in the form of soft body armor.

DYING FOR OIL/
2001-2004 Civil Rights Report Complete
BushCo does not want you to see this. So here you are.
2001-2004 Civil Rights Report Complete
Failing to build on common ground, the Bush administration missed opportunities to build consensus on key civil rights issues and has instead adopted policies that divide Americans. President Bush could have, early on, called on public officials to unify and show America and the world that, together, the nation could improve its voting systems. Likewise, he could have
exerted leadership on affirmative action by soliciting diverse viewpoints and promoting policies that achieve diversity. Future presidential administrations, in fulfilling their duty to advance civil rights, should inspire Americans to unity, not divisiveness.
Dying for Oil
George Herbert Walker Bush and two other partners owned Pennzoil Motor Co at the time it acquired 9.2% of Chevron. In fact, it is quite possible that the Bush family fortune including controlling interest in a company called CalTex, which held the exclusive contract worth hundreds of billions of dollars to distributre 100% of all oil pumped by the old Saudi Aramco, throughout the entire planet. (which was Texaco/Amaco/Shell etc. before OPEC took over). When OPEC took over..CALTEX keep handling most of the global distribution for the OPEC member nations. Very lucrative...the largest in the history of the World...especially if you are an Arbusto! If the Bush family did in fact own CalTex, Bush, Sr. disclosure of a net worth of only $3.0 Million at the time he assumded the Presidency was a fraud. That means George Bush's dad owns a controlling interest in Chevron. Chevron subsequently purchased Gulf and Texaco and now operates as ChevronTexaco, regardless of the oil-soaked media's attempt to call it "Unocal", which no longer exists.
None of this makes sense unless you keep in mind that "Chevron" was the primary contractor for "UN Food for Oil" Catastrophe. That means that every bribe and completed only further engorged "Chevron's" profits. Keep in Mind also that Paul Bremer was working with Kissinger & Associates, representing Chevron during its' successful contract negotiatons with the Taliban leaders in the Pakistani Government in l998. The Contract required the Taliban to provide security for the Caspian Sea Pipeline link that travelled through Pakistan and Afghanistan. I Understand that Chevron made a down payment of approx $140. to the Pakistani Govt but my info may be outdated. When Clinton hit the Afgans in l998, there is a rumor that he was actually trying to submarine Chevron negotiations with the Taliban, who by then had permitted bin Laden to destoy the embassies in Africa. So, in a nutshell, connecting the dots with Condoleeza Rice...we must all remember that she was on the Board of Directors of Chevron at the time of the negotiations. She was also on the ExxonMobil Board as well as the Board of J P MOrgan/Chase which owns controlling interest in General Electric which owns NBC,...on which you will NEVER see this story reported! See the connections? What has all this to do with Kay Bailey!....not so fast!
Muhammad Karzai, the current "acting Governor" of Afghanistan was also Chevron's main Pipeline consultant in Afghanistan. The Bush administration is having trouble selecting "leaders" in Iraq that don't have apparent Chevron connections, since the world is getting wise to the ploy! Furthermore, Bush/Chevron has no intention of handing over Sovereignty to the IRaqi people until Chevron can regain control of the Iraqi oil fields, which is by no means, certain, UNLESS they can get the UN back in to start up "Blood For Oil". The reason why Bush needs the old Saddam Intelligence regime back in place is because they are already the "keeper of the keys" on the issues of keeping quiet and discreet about Chevron oversight. In other words...it worked once..why fix it if it aint' broke. (I'll explain why Chevron didn't want Saddam captured in Gulf War 1 at a later time) Keep in mind that the Iraqi oil fields were originally nationalized by Saddam Hussein. At the time they belonged to British Petroleum. Subsquently, they came under the control of ChevronTexaco.
I just LOVED this picture.

Bush's Temperature Rises
BUSH GOES NEGATIVE ON CHARLIE GIBSON?
President Bush smirked and winked and chuckled to himself. He jumped from his stool, chopped at the air and interrupted the debate moderator. As he fought to keep his emotions in check in a testy, personal debate with Sen. John Kerry, the president asserted, That answer almost made me scowl. [AP, 10/8/04]
An angry Bush at one point cut off moderator Charles Gibson to upbraid Kerry for criticizing the size of the coalition backing the United States in Iraq, saying it denigrated allies like Britain and Poland. [Reuters, 10/9/04]
During his [Bushs] own answers and rebuttals, he was pugnacious. He overrode moderator Charles Gibson's protests at one point, saying loudly, I have to answer this. [USA Today, 10/9/04]
BUSH ON DEFENSE
Mark Shields: I thought the President played defense on an awful lot of issues tonight. I mean including the Canadian importation of drugs and so much on the economy, and as well as Iraq. [PBS, 10/8/04]
Liz Marlantes, Christian Science Monitor: I actually would in many ways characterize the presidents performance as heated and to me, at times; it seemed very defensive, actually. [MSNBC, 10/9/04]
John Harwood, Wall Street Journal: [Bush] was quite agitated at the beginning. He looked defensive, he looked like somebody who was sort of trying to push the rock up hill, convincing people why he really should have gone to war against Iraq even though there were no weapons of mass destruction. [CNN, 10/8/04]
BUSHS ANGER MANAGEMENT
Jon Meachan: That was so interesting to me about President Bush is that he seemed like an angry man tonight, and clearly Kerry got under his skin in the first debate and instead of frankly not letting butter melt in his mouth, tonight he seemed to me to be speaking very loudly. [PBS, 10/9/04]
Melinda Henneberger: [Bush] seemed angry to me. [MSNBC 10/9/04]
Liz Marlantes, Christian Science Monitor: [Bush] still has some of those things I mean, you look at his face, hes so tightly coiled; hes got the jaw, hes doing the blinking thing. [MSNBC, 10/9/04]
TENSE AND ANGRY
Joe Klein: Bush seemed tense and angry. The person who wins is the person when you turn off the sound, the one who looks better to the public that was Kerry tonight. Bush is supposed to be the laid back regular guy, [but] he seems more tense than Kerry does. [CNN, 10/9/04]
When Mr. Kerry accused the president of going to war unilaterally, Mr. Bush could not suppress his anger. He jumped off his stool and interrupted the moderator, Charles Gibson of ABC, saying, I've got to answer this. Mr. Gibson wanted to pursue the subject of whether deploying Reserves constituted a form of military draft, but Mr. Bush was adamant. Let me just answer what he just said about going alone, he insisted. You tell Tony Blair we're going alone! Tell Tony Blair we're going alone! [New York Times, 10/9/04]
STRIDENT AND INTENSE
At the outset, Bush seemed strident and intense, as if over-eager to avoid a repetition of his pained performance eight days ago. [New York Times, 10/9/04]
[Bush]...could have used more humility and was almost shrill at times. [Editorial, Dallas Morning News, 10/9/04]
The president seemed to fall back frequently on name-calling.... [Editorial, New York Times, 10/9/04]
Bush seemed wound a bit too tight. He was a little like Nixon sort of jumping out of his suit, said David Niven, political science professor at Florida Atlantic University. He looked bad on the TV close-ups. [AP, 10/9/04]
HOT UNDER THE COLLAR
The president...let his feelings get the better of him, getting hot under the collar in a medium best served cold. From the outset, his clenched jaw twitched, and he blinked repeatedly, like a man whose contact lens hurt. And when Senator John Kerry turned and confronted him face to face with the latest report on the absence of illicit weapons in Iraq, President Bush snickered derisively - the first sign that the president, though more combative than in the first debate, was not on his game. [New York Times, 10/9/04]
Bush, curbing most of the signs of frustration that marked his performance in last week's debate, grew agitated after Kerry asserted the United States is bearing the burden in Iraq. [Houston Chronicle, 10/9/04]
[Bush]...did come across as flustered at a couple points in the evening, referring to his opponent as Sen. Kennedy, who is the senior senator from Massachusetts. When asked about the draft, Bush declared: I hear there is a rumor on the Internets. [Chicago Tribune, 10/9/04]
BUSHS DEJA VU EXPRESSIONS
Mr. Bush seemed hesitant and spoke loudly when he took the stage...at times he flashed glances of anger at Mr. Kerry that were reminiscent of his demeanor the week before. [New York Times, 10/9/04]
And not unlike that first battle, the president sounded angry and defensive, as if scolding the undecided. Yeah, great question, he said when a man asked him about the draft. [New York Times, 10/9/04]
Bush kept his smirks and other body language in check more so than he did in the first debate, though at times he still let them roam. At one point, Bush even interrupted moderator Charles Gibson to lecture Kerry about the allied coalition in Iraq: You tell (British Prime Minister) Tony Blair we're going alone!

The NY Times on the Town Hall Debate
In a board editorial the New York Times weighs in on Friday night's Town Hall debate, and on George Bush's difficulty coming to grips with reality:
"The president's insistence on defending his decision to go into Iraq seemed increasingly bizarre in a week when his own investigators reported that there were no weapons of mass destruction there, and when his own secretary of defense acknowledged that there was no serious evidence of a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda."
"And the president was utterly incoherent when asked about whom he might name to the Supreme Court in a second term. His comment about how he didn't want to offend any judges because he wanted "them all voting for me" was a joke - but an unfortunate one, given the fact that the president owes his job to a Supreme Court vote."
The Town Hall Debate
Published: October 9, 2004
Town hall meetings are one vestige of early American democracy that modern presidential candidates know very well. No one who has survived a New Hampshire primary season needs to be told what it's like to answer questions tossed out by a group of average citizens. It's the democratic process in its most amiable state: earnest Americans asking serious questions about the issues. Last night's format was much more suited to George Bush's talents than the hard-edged debate last week, but John Kerry still managed to goad him to irritable near-shouting at some points.
One of the uncommitted voters in the audience sensibly asked President Bush to name three mistakes he'd made in office, and what he had done to remedy the damage. Mr. Bush declined to list even one, and instead launched into an impassioned defense of the invasion of Iraq as a good idea. The president's insistence on defending his decision to go into Iraq seemed increasingly bizarre in a week when his own investigators reported that there were no weapons of mass destruction there, and when his own secretary of defense acknowledged that there was no serious evidence of a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda.
Even worse, the president's refusal to come up with even a minor error - apart from saying that he might have made some unspecified appointments that he now regretted - underscores his inability to respond to failure in any way except by insisting over and over again that his original decision was right.
Unfortunately, for long stretches of the evening, the format did not lead to such telling responses. On occasion, the arguments were impossible to follow. Heaven help any citizen who relied on last night's debate to understand what is going on with North Korea or who tried to understand the fight about tax cuts on Subchapter S corporations.
Mr. Bush was deeply unpersuasive when asked why he had not permitted the importation of cheaper prescription drugs from Canada. He claimed that the reason was "I want to make sure it cures you and doesn't kill you." Mr. Kerry cleanly retorted that four years ago in a campaign debate, Mr. Bush had said importing medicine from Canada sounded sensible.
And the president was utterly incoherent when asked about whom he might name to the Supreme Court in a second term. His comment about how he didn't want to offend any judges because he wanted "them all voting for me" was a joke - but an unfortunate one, given the fact that the president owes his job to a Supreme Court vote.
Mr. Kerry was weaker when he had to respond to a woman who wanted to know about spending federal money on abortions. Social issues seem to bring out the senator's worst tendencies to paint a word picture in shades of gray and equivocation.
Both men seemed overly defensive at times, as if they were fighting shadow opponents that were not even in the hall. Mr. Kerry seemed intent, without much prompting by Mr. Bush, on countering the attack ads run by the president's campaign and by other Republican organizations. Mr. Bush sometimes seemed as if he was trying to make up for his weak performance in Debate No. 1.
Mr. Kerry demonstrated, at the very minimum, a stature that was equal to the president's. If Mr. Bush was hoping to recover all the ground he lost last week, he failed in his mission.
The president seemed to fall back frequently on name-calling, denouncing his opponent as a liberal and a tool of the trial lawyers. "The president's just trying to scare," Mr. Kerry said. It will be another few weeks before we see how well that works.

Bush's "friend", President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, ("Pooty-Poot" as the smirking chimp (bush) calls him), is probably not too pleased with idiot boy after he dares to criticise his policies. How could a complete and utter failure try to pass judgement on a real President, fighting real terrorists. You don't hear Mr. Putin saying "Bring 'em on!", Want to know why Georgy? Huh? Cuz Smirky, over here they are real, and no one is using them and inventing them to make money. So go Cheney yourself!
With this in mind, Nemtsos appears in a rather strange position before Russians. However, American president George W. Bush appears to be even a greater fool. Failing to study Putin's initiatives in greater detail, Bush Jr. has publicly expressed his discontent. More so, he has even criticized them. One might get an impression as though by the end of his first presidential term this Republican did manage to learn the names of some countries; he did however fail to perceive the difference between them. In any case, the man who managed to become president of the United States as a result of a major scandal looks rather foolish in his attempt to teach others what to do, especially while electoral legislation in his own country is a mess. But these are the problems American public should be concerned with.

One Debate Down/Kerry Wins
I was extremely disappointed in the fucking-excuse-for-a-primate-smirky-the-chimp-boy, after all, this was supposed to be his strong point, but listening to him I felt sorry for him, he was so human; first becoming flustered, then seeming confused, and even seemed on the brink of flying into a rage. I actually thought at one point he would just tell Mr. Kerry to go Cheney himself and leave the stage. Mr. Bush was so sure that what he has been doing was right that to me he appeared cocky and extremely defensive. He did a good job of trying to paint Mr. Kerry as someone who sends mixed messages, but it was clear the argument was hollow, and of himself as someone with, steadfast resolve, no matter what! He did not present anything new other than his steadfastness in pursuing his failed policies. His mangled simplistic use of the English language was also extremely irritating to listen to, but it is part of his charm and helps him to gain the sympathy he so desperately needs. These qualities made me feel sorry for him but in light of his record and off all the people who have died, quite frankly, he made me sick. Sure his steadfast resolve no matter what and his aw shucks fabricated twanging way of talking have some appeal, but they are not the qualities I want in a President! I think the American people agreed.
Mr. Kerry on the other hand showed quiet strength, dignity, composure, intelligence, restraint, diplomacy, and a serious command of the issues, all lacking in Bush. The substance and thoughtfulness of his words seemed a breath of fresh air compared to Bushs tired old hollow rhetoric. I think that even the Bush supporters came away saying of Mr. Kerry, Now that is a President! even though their support was mostly unchanged. Listening to callers on C-Span after the debate I was struck by several callers who supported Bush, they called Mr. Kerry President Kerry, two of these individuals did not even realize that they had said that. I think it is pretty clear no matter what camp you belong to, after watching or listening to the debate Mr. Kerry obviously has all the Presidential qualities that Bush is severely lacking in. Mr. Kerry instilled a feeling of comfort, trust, and intelligent competence, and the feelings of pity I came away with for Bush pale in comparison. Mr. Kerrys statements about Iraq, Korea, and the way our allies have been ostracized by Bushs policies, made it clear that he will give America and Americans their dignity and position back on the world stage. He obviously is ready to pursue a new direction using diplomacy and the help of our allies that will bring about peace.
I think it is very clear, if we want to continue to live in a world of terror and fear, where the US is a pariah then we can resolutely stick with Bush, if we want our dignity, security and peace back we can welcome a man who already has shown he is fit for the job, who cares, and is intelligent enough to weigh his options, listen and process new information when making decisions, and make the right choices, not only for himself and his base but for all of us.

Using Terror to Stay in Power !
Bush skating on thin ice! Even sharks have rules they play by!
SEE: NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL
President Bush and his surrogates are taking their re-election campaign into dangerous territory. Mr. Bush is running as the man best equipped to keep America safe from terrorists - that was to be expected. We did not, however, anticipate that those on the Bush team would dare to argue that a vote for John Kerry would be a vote for Al Qaeda. Yet that is the message they are delivering - with a repetition that makes it clear this is an organized effort to paint the Democratic candidate as a friend to terrorists.
When Vice President Dick Cheney declared that electing Mr. Kerry would create a danger "that we'll get hit again," his supporters attributed that appalling language to a rhetorical slip. But Mr. Cheney is still delivering that message. Meanwhile, as Dana Milbank detailed so chillingly in The Washington Post yesterday, the House speaker, Dennis Hastert, said recently on television that Al Qaeda would do better under a Kerry presidency, and Senator Orrin Hatch, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has announced that the terrorists are going to do everything they can between now and November "to try and elect Kerry."
This is despicable politics. It's not just polarizing - it also undermines the efforts of the Justice Department and the Central Intelligence Agency to combat terrorists in America. Every time a member of the Bush administration suggests that Islamic extremists want to stage an attack before the election to sway the results in November, it causes patriotic Americans who do not intend to vote for the president to wonder whether the entire antiterrorism effort has been kidnapped and turned into part of the Bush re-election campaign. The people running the government clearly regard keeping Mr. Bush in office as more important than maintaining a united front on the most important threat to the nation.
Mr. Bush has not disassociated himself from any of this, and in his own campaign speeches he makes an argument that is equally divisive and undemocratic. The president has claimed, over and over, that criticism of the way his administration has conducted the war in Iraq and news stories that suggest the war is not going well endanger American troops and give aid and comfort to the enemy. This week, in his Rose Garden press conference with the interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, Mr. Bush was asked about Mr. Kerry's increasingly pointed remarks on Iraq. "You can embolden an enemy by sending mixed messages," he said, going on to suggest that Mr. Kerry's criticisms dispirit the Iraqi people and American soldiers.
It is fair game for the president to claim that toppling Saddam Hussein was a blow to terrorism, to accuse Mr. Kerry of flip-flopping and to repeat continually that the war in Iraq is going very well, despite all evidence to the contrary. It is absolutely not all right for anyone on his team to suggest that Mr. Kerry is the favored candidate of the terrorists. And at a time when the United States is supposed to be preparing the Iraqi people for a democratic election, it's appalling to hear the chief executive say that loyal opposition gives aid and comfort to the enemy abroad.
The general instinct of Americans is to play fair. That is why, even though terrorists struck the United States during President Bush's watch, the Democrats have not run a campaign that blames him for allowing the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to be attacked. And while the war in Iraq has opened up large swaths of the country to terrorist groups for the first time, any effort by Mr. Kerry to describe the president as the man whom Osama bin Laden wants to keep in power would be instantly denounced by the Republicans as unpatriotic.
We think that anyone who attempts to portray sincere critics as dangerous to the safety of the nation is wrong. It reflects badly on the president's character that in this instance, he's putting his own ambition ahead of the national good.

By Chris Floyd
How many times must the truth be told before it conquers the lies? Again and again, the brutal realities behind the rape of Iraq -- that it was planned years ago, that the aggressors knew full well that their justifications for war were false and that their invasion would lead to chaos, ruin and unbridled terror -- have been exposed by the very words and documents of the invaders themselves. Yet the reign of the lie goes on, rolling toward its final entrenchment in November.
Last week, as hundreds of Iraqi civilians were being slaughtered by insurgents and invaders, as more pipelines exploded, more hostages were seized, more families sank into poverty and filth, the cynical machinations of the oh-so-Christian Coalition of Bush and Blair were revealed yet again. This time it was a tranche of leaked documents from March 2002, a full year before the war: reports to Tony Blair from his top advisers plainly stating that the intelligence about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was unsubstantiated, that there was no connection between Saddam and al-Qaida, that there was no legal justification for invading the country, and that any such invasion would lead to years of chaotic occupation, The Daily Telegraph (an arch-conservative, pro-war paper) reports.
Even more remarkably, Blair was told that the likely end result of the invasion would be the rise of yet another Saddam-like tyrant, who would then try to acquire the very weapons of mass destruction that the Coalition attack was ostensibly designed to destroy. In fact, Blair was told, with Iraq hedged in by a powerful Iran to the east and a nuclear-armed Israel to the west, any Iraqi leader, even a democratic one, will eventually seek WMD to defend the country.
All of this echoed similar warnings given to George W. Bush by the State Department, the CIA, top military brass -- even his own father. Most of these alarms were reported -- obscurely at times -- in the press before the invasion. The Coalition's maniacal drive to war without evidence or provocation was later confirmed -- again, often obliquely -- by Congressional probes, the 9/11 commission, the Hutton report, the Butler report, Bush's official WMD investigators and a raft of revelations by top insiders on both sides of the Atlantic, such as Robin Cook, Richard Clarke, Bob Graham, John O'Neill and others.
The public record, available to anyone who wants the truth, is undeniable: The war was waged on false pretenses -- and the war leaders knew it. They knew it would bring unimaginable death and suffering to multitudes of innocent people in Iraq -- and to thousands of their own soldiers and civilians as well. They knew it would lead to more terrorism, more chaos, more insecurity in the world. Yet they plunged ahead anyway, deliberately deceiving their own people with a poison cloud of lies, exaggeration and bluster. Why? Because for the warmongers, the game was worth the candle: The loot, the power, the "dominance" to be won was an irresistible temptation.
The Telegraph expose centered on papers prepared for Blair's March 2002 summit with the true ruler of the United States: Dick Cheney. As often noted here, Cheney was a key figure in the corporate/militarist faction Project for the New American Century, along with Don Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and other bloodthirsty elites. In September 2000 -- before Bush was installed as the faction's White House frontman -- PNAC issued the final version of a plan, years in the making, to ensure American geopolitical and economic "dominance" through military control of key oil regions and strategic pipeline routes, either directly or via client states. This would be accompanied by a "revolutionary" transformation of American society into a more warlike state: a transformation that PNAC said could only be accomplished if the American people were "galvanized" by "a catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."
The conquest of Iraq was a vital cog in this long-range plan, and the depredations of the Baath Regime -- the worst of which occurred with the full support of PNAC's top players during the Reagan-Bush years -- had nothing to do with it. The Cheney-Rumsfeld group put it plainly in 2000: The need to establish a military presence in Iraq "transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein." Likewise, 9/11 and "the new threats in a changed world" -- evoked so often as a justification by the warmongers -- were equally irrelevant to an invasion planned years before the CIA's ex-ally, Osama bin Laden, obligingly provided that longed-for "new Pearl Harbor."
What's more, the warmakers knew that Saddam's WMD arsenal and weapons development programs had been dismantled at his order in 1991. This was confirmed in 1995 by crateloads of documentary evidence supplied by top defector Hussein Kamel, Saddam's son-in-law and WMD chieftain -- as Time magazine reported years ago. It was confirmed again by UN inspectors, who independently verified the elimination of 95 percent of Iraq's WMD arsenal -- before they were summarily pulled out of the country ahead of a U.S.-British punitive strike in 1998.
Bush, Blair, Cheney and the rest knew all of this when they made the decision to launch what the Nuremberg Tribunal called "the supreme international crime" -- aggressive war. Now they are openly planning a new blitzkrieg to crush all resistance to their profit-seeking conquest: an assault -- conveniently set after Bush's re-installation as frontman -- which they know will churn through countless innocent bodies like a meat grinder.
When they stand before the world to justify the coming outrage, remember this, and hold to it: everything they say about their war is a lie. And it has been from the beginning.

Bush's campaign tactics "un-American."
The U.S. and Britain blamed the threat of a French veto for not pursuing their resolution at the United Nations authorizing military action. This was humbug designed to camouflage the diplomatic disaster these countries suffered at the UN, where a clear majority of the Security Council members opposed them. Not pursuing the doomed Anglo-American resolution also let off the hook non-permanent council members -- Mexico, Chile and Pakistan -- since they were not going to support the U.S. but would have felt uncomfortable saying so publicly.
Since then, our foreign relations have gotten worse. The Spanish dumped a pro-Bush prime minister for lying to them about terrorism. Costa Rica asked to be removed from the "coalition." This week Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, allegedly one of our "good friends" in the Middle East, snubbed Bush by refusing to send Pakistani troops into Iraq. And yesterday he told Tom Brokaw that the war in Iraq had made America's position in the Middle East worse.
But in Bushworld, supporting Kerry is tantamount to supporting terrorism.

House, the most devastating segment of "Fahrenheit 9/11" may be the video
of a befuddled-looking President Bush staying put for nearly seven minutes
at a Florida elementary school on the morning of Sept. 11, continuing to
read a copy of "My Pet Goat" to schoolchildren even after an aide has told
him that a second plane has struck the twin towers. Mr. Bush's slow,
hesitant reaction to the disastrous news has never been a secret. But

Enough already on Reagan. I remember when the Republicans took power and
started taking away all of the gains made by minorities thinking that they
were like nazis, Reagan being the head stormtrooper, that is what I
remember of Reagan. And how all of a sudden abortion was the hot topic,
and the poor were a burden on society, and how all of our problems were
caused by the poor immigrants who were stealing our jobs. That is what I
remember. It is sad when anyone dies, but enough already. I always

coming out and going away as to how, because of the poor state of the
various investigatios and their inability to connect the dots, of course,
no one is going to have to take responsibility for the torture suffered by
the Iraqi prisoners. The New York Times says, "...the accountability of
senior officers and Pentagon officials may remain unanswered as a result."

24/Bush: God's Annointed
Bush Losing His Mind!
Looking for Lawyer
Well just as I was saying all
along, I am not going to say I told you so, but actually I did. I am
talking about GB being a dangerous whacko. The day that he was elected
president I told everyone I knew, if the topic came up for discussion,
that he would start a war within six months to a year and that is exactly
what happened. At the time I had no idea that in order to, (bring it on!),
the events of 9-11 would take place, but they did, and as George said at
the time he had,"... hit the trifecta!" Now I am not saying that George
Bush caused 9-11, although he and his big business cronies profited most
of all and this would cause any thinking person to be suspicious, but it
sure helped him to put his plans into motion; his plan to invade Iraq, to
start war, and to subjugate the American People to the will of the
neo-cons. Those are the facts, I am not telling you anything new. Now
things are coming full circle and it will soon be time to pay the piper.
This is a dangerous man and my fear is that as he begins to feel the heat
and sense his past coming back to haunt him he will try to do something
monumental in scope. With each passing day more and more comes out that
gives us a glimpse into the workings of the mind that we have all been
subjugated to for the last few years. Here is a man who fancies himself,
and wants to be viewed by the world as a great "War President", his own
words tell us that, his likening his invasion of a sovereign nation under
false pretenses and the resulting quagmire to the great victories of WWII
tell us even more how off-base he is.
To fully understand this megalomaniac one has to look at his past, what is
available in the public record is enough to start with. Here is a man who
grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth, no doubt subjugated to intense
pressure and expectations as a child; he grew up in a cocoon surrounded by
Secret Service men, and people coddling him. As he grew up he lost respect
for individual human lives seeing people as pawns to be used to further
his own ends, this is clear and evident from the way he treats his
subordinates. This is what he learned from his privileged childhood and
authoritarian parents. People were afraid to anger him because of who his
father was, and he learned to use this, first in his college years, and
then later in life, he grew up uninterested, spoiled, and angry. He tried
to deny his own New England roots, instead choosing to pretend to be some
great Texan oil man. Which he is not.
With each and every greater deed came greater and greater failure, but
these were all taken care of. So now we have a man who thinks that he can
do, say, cause, and inflict whatever he wants and someone else will always
take the blame. Only this time it won't happen that way. At least I hope
As for his delusions of persecution and his "Jesus complex", this was
brought on by abusive parents, his own view that he is better than the
rest of us, a mixing of "holier-than-thou" conservative ideology, and an
intellect, quite frankly, not intelligent enough to deal with the world
At present he is in denial, and refuses to accept a reality that is not in
sync with his own delusional architecture, and his own vision of himself
as the hand of God. This should be clear to his aids and those close to
him, I think for the sake of our own safety and the safety of the world
this man must be contained.
Were I talking about a patient at a mental institution I would recommend
further treatment, but I am talking about the president of the United
States of America, who with his desire to view himself as a great "war
leader" may bring about WWIII.
The latest firing made it easier to draw my conclusions, as the CIA has a
building named after his father, (for shame!) he views this (DCI) as his own
plaything, first he uses the director as a scapegoat, then in a fit of
temper he fires him for no good reason. And let us not forget that all the
claims of "bad intelligence", were a result of GB telling everyone to only
bring him information that fit into his own view of things. Remember that
George Tenet tried to warn GB prior to 9-11.
I think George Tenet's statement upon his firing may give us an idea of
how far GB may go, Tenet said, ""And while Washington and the media will
put many different faces on the decision, it was a personal decision, and
had only one basis -- in fact, the well-being of my wonderful family --
nothing more and nothing less." Could it be that our psychopathic,
delusional, megalomaniac GB threatened Mr. Tenet's family? Just a thought, I
would not be surprised.
Maybe it is time Bush was made to step down, "today", he is apparently unfit to be

Continues in Iraq 22/
Bush Still a "Pendejo!"
By John Robles
Having spent most of the day blogging around had no time to
peruse the news, Bush still bent on world domination.
What is disturbing is that there have been massive Naval movements
happening all over the world, perhaps the US is preparing to invade
another country? Will look for more on this.
intelligent dialogue involving defense must also include dialogue
regarding diplomacy. We will never be safe as long as new enemies are
being made everyday. Mr. "Bring 'em on!" 's style of diplomacy brought
us 9-11 and the current quagmire in Iraq. Every passing hour brings us
all closer to the brink as long as George Walker Bush is in office. Of
this I am sure.
What can be done? The
United States of America used to be a symbol of strength, of freedom,
and of opportunity. We had allies the world over who admired, trusted,
and looked to us for guidance. The world believed that we were the
answer, that we could solve any and every problem. We were viewed as a
compassionate and multi-facetted nation, strong and fair, compassionate
and wise, ready to assist and help the weak and the defenseless.
that has all changed, and that change began at home, right on the
corner, at the local college, at the supermarket, and all the local
places where people meet and interact, in the streets of America. What
am I talking about? About the little Indian looking kid who gets beat up
all the time for nothing, about the black family who is terrorized for
nothing, about the Arab kid who is kicked around for nothing, about the
Mexican girl who will never have a chance to be someone, I am talking
about the Chinese kid who is taunted, and the Jewish kid who is afraid
to leave his home, and all the Russians, Koreans, Italians, Armenians,
Puerto Ricans, and every other ethnic group that makes up our nation,
the American Indians who live in exile, women and all the people who are
alienated and ostracized every day, people as diverse and varied as the
world we live in, people who have to live knowing that they will never
have a chance at the American dream, because they are different.
Different from whom? From the fat rich men who control everything. These
are people who have to listen to the Rush Limpbrains, the Ann Culteers,
and the George Bushes spew their own version of how things should be day
after day year after year, a version of reality where only they benefit,
and God forbid one should stand up to their fascist, racist,
holier-than-thou ideology and rhetoric.
has become a police state where the individual has no rights. The
government that the reeepoooplicans have given us can be called nothing
less than fascist. In the name of our own security they tell us that
they are taking away our rights, and using the fear that they have
instilled in us they wish to control us even further. They use terror,
and when George Bush proclaimed that he had hit the trifecta upon
hearing of 9-11 it was clear as day, they are the terrorists, they have
used terror to take control of our country, the have used it to stifle
dissent, they have used it to cow the once great American people into
passivity. Then they flaunt their insidious deeds in front of our eyes,
and we can do nothing to stop them. They send soldiers to die for no
real reason, and we can not stop them. They take away our rights as if
they were theirs to be taken away, and we do nothing. They exploit,
pollute, rape, and desecrate everything and anything they want in order
to line their pockets. We do nothing.
So what can we do to
protect our great country, we can live by the values that are supposed
to make us a great nation, we can be a fair and just and peace-loving
society, we can instill ideals, tolerance, and understanding in our
people, we can strive to be the great and just nation that is our
heritage and we will be loved again by all.
Or we can continue to
follow the path we are on to hell.
How can we protect
ourselves? By not having so many enemies.
If terrorism is the
disease, we need to attack the root of the problem. In my humble opinion
that begins with the Arab kid down the street who gets beat up everyday
and will grow into the next terrorist.
If this post is taken
down right away I will understand why. I am sure to make people
uncomfortable, but that is what free speech is all about isn’t it?
You all have a great
evening. It has been an honor posting here.

Slaughter Continues in Iraq
/Bush Skirts Blame
By John Robles II
Any normal human being can
not help but be disgusted and alarmed by the photographs that have
recently been coming out of Iraq showing what are supposed to be the great
liberators acting worse than the people they were supposedly liberating
the Iraqis from.
I know that I for one
am disgusted. If one is to consider that what has gotten out is just the
tip of the iceberg then we should all be extremely alarmed.
Consider for a moment the
fact that all of the news and the images that have come out of Iraq since
the beginning of this so-called war have been spoon fed to us by
journalists and media outlets who are under the control of the US
government and you to will have reason to believe as I do that what we are
seeing now is just a small sample of what has really been going on there.
The press is towing the line
by printing and broadcasting reports sponsored by the government in which
they claim that these are only isolated incidents, when in reality the
only aberration that I think really exists here is the fact that these
incidents actually got past the censorship net that has pretty much sealed
off Iraq from the rest of the world from day one.
If you consider that a
general in the army was withdrawn from duty over the abuse of prisoners it
should be clear that this could not have happened over an isolated
incident involving six low level soldiers.
The fact that the people who
are involved in the twisted acts that have been photographed for the world
to see, were bold enough to take pictures and not even attempt to hide
their appearances points to the fact that they were extremely comfortable
and had no reservations whatsoever about what they were doing.
According to The New Yorker
the partied involved included the following six people: Staff Sergeant
Ivan L. Frederick II, known as Chip; Specialist Charles A. Graner;
Sergeant Javal Davis; Specialist Megan Ambuhl; Specialist Sabrina Harman;
and Private Jeremy Sivits. The seventh perpetrator, Private Lynndie
England, was reassigned to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, after becoming
pregnant, it is unknown by whom, perhaps one of her charges.
All of the parties involved
are awaiting trial in Iraq except for England.
Of course we do not know that
whole story, but no matter how terrible the men were or what they had done
they should not have been subjected to such inhumane treatment.
If they were in fact
intelligence sources and they were being broken for the purpose of
interrogations then it is bad trade-craft indeed if the intelligence
officers were allowing their operations, or warm-ups, to be run by such
amateurs as the people listed above. As the press reports, they claim that
they were on orders from higher ups to break the detainees in order to
loosen them up so that they would talk when they were interrogated
by Intel officers.
In the light of these facts
and incidents and the mountain more that I am sure we will never hear
about, it is no wonder whatsoever that the Iraqi people are revolting
against the US and England, and it makes the incident that happened in
Falluhah, when the contractors were mutilated and hung from a bridge seem
more understandable. The press would have us believe that the people who
did that had no reason but I think that any rational human could see that
it is likely they did have a reason for what they did. Now don't get me
wrong I am not supporting what those animals did to those contractors just
as I can not support what those six sickos did to prisoners, but they may
have had a reason. If we consider that interrogations are being carried
out by private contractors in Iraq, and the treatment that we have now
become witness to may have been ordered and sanctioned by these same
contractors then we have a reason for what happened on the bridge and what
is happening there today.
War is hell, but this is not
a conventional war and that has troubled me from the start. All of the
killing that is going on to this day is not being done by two armies on
the field of battle, facing each other with honor and determination. All
of the killing is being done by, and I do not care how well organized or
armed they are, what amount to civilians, who are, at least in their eyes
defending themselves against a foreign invader.
When the people of Falluhah
cheered when control of the city was given to an ex-general of Saddam
Hussein's it was clear to me that, we will never win in Iraq. It was also
clear to me a long time ago that we should never have entered Iraq to
Here again we have an example
of the United States destroying a culture and a country and trying to
force its own brand of justice and thinking on another country that has
not asked for it nor has wanted it. But I guess that is what its all
I guess it is not possible to
respect others, to respect a foreign country and its customs, territories,
and peoples if they have something you want and need and they refuse to
give it to you. Which is why we are in Iraq to begin with is it not?
Now I am not anti-American, I
myself am part native American, but what has become of the America that
was supposed to be; "The land of the free and the home of the brave", has
long since perished and what it has become is not something that any sane
and rational person can be proud of. What we are seeing is a manifestation
of the sickness that has been eating away at America for a long time.
Greed (especially corporate), racism, murder, sadism, and sexual deviation
allowed to run free and unchecked.
So what is going to happen
next? This war and this president have done more to hurt the United States
than anything in history.
Of course the incidents of
torture and the humiliating of prisoners will not help the US in anyway,
on the contrary it will sow the seeds of even greater hatred and make even
more enemies where there were none. In that Bush has been an expert and
this war of his has done nothing but, and in the long run more has been
done to hurt, divide, and lower the US than anything Bin Laden could have
ever dreamed of, so who has won?

fact that an airplane never hit the Pentagon, and Bin Laden's purported
claims in the mass media that one did, would attest to his non-invovement.
Pictures on this site and available on the net shortly after 9-11 point to
this conclusion. However since Bin Laden and his family's ties with the
Bush clan go way back we believe he was involved in darker ways than the
monstrous terrorist attack for which he is blamed. Having worked for the
CIA and having had direct ties to the Bush family should make any person
Perhaps he was conveniently used as the scapegoat and even agreed to play
this role, after all, US Army coat wearing, Bin Laden may be one of the
greatest assests the Shadow Government has ever had. One only has to
analyze the available information to see that too many pieces to the
puzzle do not fit.
The only fact that seems to keep staring me in the face is the obvious
fact that George Bush's destiny and his rise to power have been and are
intertwined with Bin Laden and the terrorists he has supposedly been given
the right from God to exterminate. Think about this; if Bin Laden were in
fact a fighter for the cause of Muslims the world over, he has wrought
nothing but death and destruction on the people he is supposed to be on a
One has only to look for the beneficiaries of any act to find the likely
culprits in this case the person who has benefitted the most ffrom the
actions of Bin Laden and 9-11 have been G Bush and his
Now George Bush will attempt to benefit from Bin Laden again by using him
to win an election which he must win at all costs in order to consolidate
his power and bring the plans of the "neo-cons" to fruition. With the
re-writing of the Constitution and the passing of legislation that will
bring these same neo-
nazis cons to ultimate power with or
without G Bush their plans are getting close to completion, the only thing
standing in their way is a pesky election and the American people who must
join together to put an end to their reign.
Back to Bin Laden's capture. For the past few weeks Bush has been
suffering in the polls and with the 9-11 commission, which he is
stonewalling, and the mountain of lies that is begining to avalanche down
on him he needs something that will boost his popularity on election day.
This is a man who will stop at nothing to gain and maintain
or perhaps it would be more accurate
to say those pulling the strings behind the scenes will stop at nothing,
for GB is nothing but a legacy put into place to facilitate the plans of
the neos. This is an Administration for and by itself, at all
Just as everything that has happened since GB took power, and this
includes the rigged election that brought him to power, everything has
been pre-arranged, the capture of Bin Laden can be no exception. So of
course we will not be told when he is really captured or better yet when
He was probably captured before Hussein and has been kept in a secured
location close to the United States. This would make the
interrogations and visits by his contacts in the White House circle
feasible. Of course those in the CIA and the FBI who are privvy to the
information will believe that there are investigative reasons and national
security reasons why secrecy must be maintained, and they will
patriotically do as they are told, but this does not change the fact that
once again, the beneficiary will be GB and the neocons.
If things continue as the neocons desire, the stripping of civil-rights,
the cowing of the masses, the strengthening of the police state, leading
to the complete control and restriction of the masses yearning to breathe
free things will eventually have to break. The worse case scenario may be
all out anarchy. Perhaps a bloody revolution, you might think that I was
talking about some third world country but I am talking about the USA,
once the bastion of Democracy and safety. There may be a complete
collapse, and the neos know it, they have taken over the government and in
order to keep the masses under control a 9-11 had to happen, there was no
other way to take away the rights of the people and clamp down the way
they have without a 9-11.
GB acts as if he owns 9-11, he refuses to co-operate with the 9-11
commission as fully as he should, and for what possible reason? Because he
does own 9-11. If he did not directly put the events into motion then he
is guilty because he could have stopped the events from happening and
because he has profitted ever since.
One day soon the people will have had enough, when the news does break of
Bin Laden's capture and then the staged nature of it comes out that might
be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
But wait if an airplane did not hit the Pentagon and Bin Laden claimed
responsibilty for crashing an airplane into it, then he surely knows that
he himself is innocent. He therefore must be killed by those who hired
him. If this was the plan all along, and the neos did have a hand in 9-11,
he surely must die. Of course there are doubles, and actors who could play
the role for the cameras, and if this were the case then the real Bin
Laden would surely never reveal his face if he had gotten off scot-free.
We will have to wait and see.
Perhaps Bin Laden has been in custody since before 9-11. Whatever the case
someting smells rotten in Denmark. Even from a pure law-enforcement
viewpoint his capture would have to remain a secret as he may have agreed
to co-operate and could sell out all his co-horts. So either way they will
not tell the masses anything.
Questions regarding the treatment of Hussein may be looked at from this
perspective as well, Iraq may have only been a cover for the real
evil that is going on. Iraq was necessary, and GB was groomed for it, from
the day the shadow government took over.
As for Bin Laden wait for an October surprise.
