AxisofLogic/ Featured: "The people of Venezuela, under the leadership of President Chavez has set the course. The indigenous people of Bolivia have borne witness. The peoples of Latin America now know that is indeed possible to overcome a global corporate empire that was once thought to be invincible. The Latin America revolution ... the world revolution ... of the people ... is relatively young and still fragile - but the people of Venezuela and Bolivia are teaching us all that it is possible for the people to gain control of our own destinies."

The people of South America have given me and many like me, a priceless Christmas gift... Hope.

Stay tuned for the next episode of " Death of the Multinationals"

I fear the response that will be generated by these victories, the beast will lash out with everything in its power when it feels its stranglehold is threatened in any way.

Known by Actions, Verified by Words

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face! It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!” : "

All three GOP politicians quote their president as saying: “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face! It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!” At least one of Thompson’s sources says the president, when told his insistence on preserving some provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives following the Harriet Miers Supreme Court nomination disaster, stated, “I don’t give a goddamn: I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”...."

Lying For Empire

Lying For Empire: "I am a college professor who was inspired to write this book after viewing documentaries with my students about American interventions which resulted in crimes against humanity. The images of people losing their families and homes drove my decision to expose the lies and atrocities perpetrated by American presidents.At the same time, I believe that the time is right for this type of book. The Bush administration's disingenuous justifications for the most recent war against Iraq in 2003 have piqued people's interest in the subject. My book will grab people's attention as it exposes the lies which eight presidents told to the American people and Congress since World War II and, more importantly, exposes the war crimes they have committed.The book describes the pattern of presidential behaviour and strategies common to all these atrocities. Knowledge of this pattern will enable people to recognize plans for future U.S. interventions and will create a balance in people's understanding of world events. It will also provide people with important truths about American presidents.Each chapter begins with a narrative describing the history leading up to the war crime and is followed by a comprehensive analysis of the important events, contents of declassified documents, and presidential speeches and diary entries. The analysis leads to the conclusion that each president lied and committed war crimes. Each chapter destroys commonly held myths and introduces new information about the events and people under discussion. For example, the book examines the popular perception that Serbia committed genocide against the people of Sarajevo and brings to light the fact that the allegations are based on selective and false information."

Pat Robertson To Pa. After It Rejects Intelligent Design: "If There Is A Disaster In Your Area, Don't Turn To God... You Just Voted God Out Of Your City"..."

See I told you they were an imminent threat! What a fucking freak!! He's a witch! Burn him! Burn him!

Daily Kos: State of the Nation

Daily Kos: State of the Nation: "First, I think it should be a stated goal of United States policy to not melt the skin off of children.

As a natural corollary to this goal, I think the United States should avoid dropping munitions on civilian neighborhoods which, as a side effect, melt the skin off of children. You can call them 'chemical weapons' if you must, or far more preferably by the more proper name of 'incendiaries'. The munitions may or may not precisely melt the skin off of children by setting them on fire; they do melt the skin off of children, however, through robust oxidation of said skin on said children, which is indeed colloquially known as 'burning'. But let's try to avoid, for now, the debate over the scientific phenomenon of exactly how the skin is melted, burned, or caramelized off of the aforementioned children. I feel quite confident that others have put more thought into the matter of how to melt the skin off of children than I have, and will trust their judgment on the matter.
Now, I know that we may be melting the skin off of children in order to give them freedom, or to prevent Saddam Hussein from possibly melting the skins off of those children at some future date. These are good and noble things to bring children, especially the ones who have not been killed by melting their skin."

Attention IDIOTS!!! Since when do the 'good guys" do this to kids? I mean besides in, like you know, Dresden, or Hiroshima, or Hanoi or.... oh, never mind.

Christianofascism!! Terrorists in your Backyard

This is in response to all of you IDIOTS!!! out there that let assholes like Ann Coultfucker and Plush Limbowels do all their thinking for them. The real threat to reason and peace in the u.s. isn't the truly manufactured threat of islamofacism. It's really Christianofascism!!! It's the towelhead fundamentalists like dobson and robertson and their idiotic mouthpieces. (most of the rightwing bloggers that I've read)

In fact they are such a profound threat to the fabric of rational discourse and freedom of expression in our fair land that I propose using existing law to declare them enemy combatants and detain them indefinitely in secret prisons spread throughout eastern europe. While they are there we can let the cia use torture to find out what they really know about Harrriet Meirs. I think that anybody who bases their world view on the writings of a bunch of syphilitic middle eastern sheep herders should be subject to random full body cavity searches and the constant surveillance of our newly formed secret police. (thanks bushie boy)

I have a solution to the problem posed by the existence of the Christianofascists. Lets just drop white phosphorus bombs on all the mega chuches next sunday. Of course we're not targeting the innocent civillians that attend church there. We're really just targeting the radical mullahs of the christian right. The poor sots that are sitting in the pews are just collateral damage.

If you think I'm being too radical here just think about this. How many more attempts to legalize gay marriage, or maintain a womans right to choose, is it going to take before we have legions of fanatic Christianofascists strapping on vests full of C4 and detonating them in schools that won't allow prayer or the recitation of the pledge of allegiance?

Next time you see your neighbor putting on a suit and loading the wife and kids up in the minivan to head to church, you just might want to load up the old .223 and keep a steady bead on 'em just in case they try something funny.

A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace : "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace
by John Perry Barlow

Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.
We have no elected government, nor are we likely to have one, so I address you with no greater authority than that with which liberty itself always speaks. I declare the global social space we are building to be naturally independent of the tyrannies you seek to impose on us. You have no moral right to rule us nor do you possess any methods of enforcement we have true reason to fear.
Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. You have neither solicited nor received ours. We did not invite you. You do not know us, nor do you know our world. Cyberspace does not lie within your borders. Do not think that you can build it, as though it were a public construction project. You cannot. It is an act of nature and it grows itself through our collective actions.
You have not engaged in our great and gathering conversation, nor did you create the wealth of our marketplaces. You do not know our culture, our ethics, or the unwritten codes that already provide our society more order than could be obtained by any of your impositions."

Electronic Frontier Foundation

EFF: About: "About EFF
From the Internet to the iPod, technologies of freedom are
transforming our society and empowering us as speakers, citizens,
creators, and consumers. These technologies are increasingly under
attack, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the first line
of defense, protecting our civil liberties in the networked world.
EFF broke new ground when it was founded in 1990 well before the
Internet was on most people's radar and continues to confront
cutting-edge issues defending free speech, privacy, innovation, and
consumer rights today. From the beginning, EFF has championed the
public interest in every critical battle affecting digital rights.

Blending the expertise of lawyers, policy analysts, activists, and
technologists, EFF achieves significant victories on behalf of consumers and the general public. EFF fights for freedom
primarily in the courts, bringing and defending lawsuits even when that means taking on the US government or large corporations. By mobilizing more than 50,000 concerned citizens through our Action Center, EFF beats back bad legislation.
In addition to advising policymakers, EFF educates the press and
public. Sometimes just defending technologies isn't enough, so EFF
also helps fund and build freedom-enhancing inventions.

EFF is a donor-funded nonprofit and depends on your support to
continue successfully defending your digital rights. Litigation is
particularly expensive; because two-thirds of our budget comes from
individual donors, every contribution is critical to helping EFF fight
%u2014and win%u2014more cases.

Supporting Hillary ...a message from Cindy Sheehan

: "I thought Mrs. Clinton listened, but apparently she didn't because immediately afterwards she said the following to Sarah Ferguson of the Village Voice:
'My bottom line is that I don't want their sons to die in vain... I don't believe it's smart to set a date for withdrawal... I don't think it's the right time to withdraw.'
That quote sounds exactly like what the few Republicans I talked to that week said. Making sure that our children did not die in 'vain' sounds exactly like something George Bush says. A 'date' for withdrawal? That sounds like Rush Limbaugh to me. That doesn't sound like an opposition party leader speaking to me. What Sen. Clinton said after our meeting sounds exactly like the Republican Party talking points I heard from Senators Dole and McCain."

Ain't a lick of difference between the elites on both sides of the the aisle. Their interests are not our interests, we are but pawns in their games of domination and exploitation. Our pain and sacrifice matter to them only when it fattens their bank accounts.

Props and Puppets : "Props and Puppets
Wade Sanders | October 19, 2005

It remains to be seen just how far George Bush is willing to go in exploiting the members of our uniformed services to compensate for his own lack of substance. Pretending to be a pilot at the controls of an airplane he is not qualified to fly, then strutting about on aircraft carrier deck wearing the uniform of a service he did not serve in; gathering together the willing and unwilling to provide a tapestry for his speeches. However, I must say that his recently staged "spontaneous and unrehearsed" live from Tikrit, with carefully screened soldiers already sworn to obey him under pain of courts-martial, may set a new benchmark. (By the way, hold the presses on the body armor, we need to get better Teleprompters for our troops, they had a tough time reading those cue cards and actually seemed coached.)"

Hmmm... seems even the military boys are starting to get a bit restive. Does this spell doom for dubya? (Methinks with glee, yes!)

The Burning of America :: Intervention Magazine :: War, Politics, Culture

The Burning of America :: Intervention Magazine :: War, Politics, Culture:

"Even the most dimwitted see the "light" when flames engulf them, even the infamous Texan hubris can't block out the pain when the body turns crispy black. And in Bush's America the flame is growing stronger and getting hotter -- the flame of Republican corruption, the flame of a deadly war, the flame of a stripped government. America is turning black, the pain is getting worse. There is change in the distressed air.

During this period of painful change we need to remain steady. Articulate why we oppose Bush's policies and explain patiently what we stand for. Don't overdue the vicious attacks, Americans won't hear you. But do remain firm, Americans detest the wishy-washy. Be resolute without being arrogant. When burnt Americans finally make their way to a sliver of an open mind, we should tell them there is another way. Ditch the moronic leadership, out of Iraq and rebuild America. "

Citizens for Legitimate Government

Citizens for Legitimate Government:

"...but it's time to get more left-leaning liberals and outright leftists to at least POSE a threat, by getting organized and getting ARMED. It's time to get well past this liberal phobia and taboo about weapons and force. After all, our liberalism was won with a REVOLUTIONARY WAR! they used real guns in that war. The French Revolution was also a WAR and they used real weapons there too."

Left Turn: Notes from the Global Intifada

Left Turn: Notes from the Global Intifada:

"According to a report that's been circulated, Denise Young, one of those trapped in the convention center told family members, 'yes, there were young men with guns there, but they organized the crowd. They went to Canal Street and 'looted,' and brought back food and water for the old people and the babies, because nobody had eaten in days. When the police rolled down windows and yelled out 'the buses are coming,' the young men with guns organized the crowd in order: old people in front, women and children next, men in the back,just so that when the buses came, there would be priorities of who got out first.' But the buses never came. 'Lots of people being dropped off, nobody being picked up. Cops passing by, speeding off. We thought we were being left to die.'

We will never hear stories like this in corporate media because they don't want it to be known that people don't succeed because of government intervention but in spite of government intervention.

"Postscript: In a June, 1992 exclusive and published interview granted by President George H. W. Bush to Sarah McClendon, the grand dame of the White House press corps at the time:

I saw him the other day actually snarling 'you're next', threatening people with American military power, a man who couldn't punch his own way out of a wet paper bag, but ready to fight to the last with other people's last drop of blood. These people make my blood boil and they ought to make every right thinking person feel that way. We deserve better than to be governed by these gangsters.'

A Healthy Hatred For Government

A Healthy Hatred For Government :
"There are those who continue to bluster as regards the State's 'incompetence; sorry, I no longer buy into that. The actions of FEMA in cutting temporary communications, and in misdirecting deliveries of bottled water and food rations, and the unconscionable actions of the Bush regime in sending in heavily armed military forces instead of emergency aid and rescue workers in a timely manner, and the rejection of all the emergency assistance offered by so many nations of the world, says it all.The State, in the form of the Bush administration, hates US! And the statist gangsters might as well know it - we are beginning to hate them right back!"

Needed - Hit Men For The Truth

Needed - Hit Men For The Truth: "I am a retired Army captain. I fought in Vietnam with the 196th Light Infantry Brigade. I walked through the jungle carrying an M-16.
"Some people think that because someone does not support the war, they do not support our troops. That is just not reality. There might be some soldiers that believe protest equals lack of support, but the vast majority that I served with knew that protestors were trying to end the madness.
"Yes, we fought the war, but almost none of us wanted to be there. We stayed there and fought because that's what soldiers do. Thank God that while we were there doing that some brave people back here had the courage to stand up and say that war is wrong.
"Thank God they were brave enough to act on their convictions and stand up to a government that had lied to us. I applaud you! Maybe you could have treated me a little better when I got back, but that's another letter.
" I find incredibly offensive those who have never fought a war, never fired a shot at another human being, never been shot at or hunted, or never had to listen to a good friend scream in agony, sending or supporting the sending of our brave soldiers to war for lies.
"Look at the facts. There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. There were no connections with the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. There were no reasons to go to war. You should be outraged.
"You want to support our troops? Keep them out of war and get rid of those who would put them in harm's way, unless absolutely necessary.
"Maybe we can't leave Iraq immediately because of the mess we created, but we should get rid of those responsible for the current situation.

No To Politics, Yes To Mass Refusal: Too late for 2004 but not to late for 2006

No To Politics, Yes To Mass Refusal: "The U.S. went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq not only for a
route to lay a pipeline to the Caspian Basin or to seize the world's second
largest oil reserves. It went to war to frighten into submission a world of
people who have begun too actively to question and resist the power of capital,
too actively to seek an alternative. It went to war to silence them with its
awesome and brutal power. The wars may have been about oil, but they were also
about social control."

Election Fraud Continues in the US

Election Fraud Continues in the US: "New research compiled by Dr. Dennis Loo with the University of Cal Poly Pomona now shows that extensive manipulation of non-paper-trail voting machines occurred in several states during the 2004 election.
The facts are as follows:
In 2004 Bush far exceeded the 85% of registered Florida Republican votes that he got in 2000, receiving more than 100% of the registered Republican votes in 47 out of 67 Florida counties, 200% of registered Republicans in 15 counties, and over 300% of registered Republicans in 4 counties. Bush managed these remarkable outcomes despite the fact that his share of the crossover votes by registered Democrats in Florida did not increase over 2000, and he lost ground among registered Independents, dropping 15 points. We also know that Bush 'won' Ohio by 51-48%, but statewide results were not matched by the court-supervised hand count of the 147,400 absentee and provisional ballots in which Kerry received 54.46% of the vote. In Cuyahoga County, Ohio the number of recorded votes was more than 93,000 greater than the number of registered voters."

An Interview with Joe Bageant: " have fished for bass
at night in its once beautiful rivers, and I have
played stink finger with its young Southern girls
who wear no panties on August nights by the light
of its many moons. I have grown what can almost be
called old now, with its earth beneath my feet and
its legends in my eyes. And now a bunch of cheap
murderous cocksuckers have hijacked the place that
made me what I am and are busily turning it into
one vast capitalist gulag. Stealing my children's'
dreams... everything I ever experienced and
cared about has become irrelevant. I don't care about
my own experiences disappearing into the void so
much as I care about the blackness now descending.
I am here right now to tell you that America is a
rogue nation and the greatest threat afoot to civilization.
That doesn't mean that every American is Hitler and
it doesn't mean that there is no hope. But we gotta
cop to what is going on. When a nation refuses to
acknowledge the need for world tribunals for ethnic
cleansing and refutes the Kyoto agreements, and murders
tens of thousands to keep its stock market afloat,
then that nation must be called malignant upon this

Capitol Hill Blue: Bush is Not an American: "All this suggests to me that the President of the United States owes a lot more to his Saudi money boys than he does to the country he has sworn to serve. It tells me the President of the United States is a traitor.
Traitors should not be President. They should be arrested, tried and, upon conviction, punished for their crimes against their country.
And, as far as I'm concerned, anyone who continues to support this traitor to America is equally guilty of treason.
Don't like those characterizations? Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn if it pisses you off because I do give a damn about my country. It's just too fucking bad that you don't."

Torture, Inc - America's Brutal Prisons :

"The prison guards stand over their captives with electric
cattle prods, stun guns, and dogs. Many of the prisoners have been ordered to strip naked. The guards are yelling abuse at them, ordering them to lie on the ground and crawl. 'Crawl, motherf*****s, crawl.'

If a prisoner doesn't drop to the ground fast enough,
a guard kicks him or stamps on his back. There's a high-pitched scream from one man as a dog clamps its teeth onto his lower leg."

...the Texas episode outlined above dates from 1996, when Bush was state Governor.

Antipodean Aims

The word for today boys and girls is Antipodean. I'll use it in a composition and then give you the definition. Before you read the definition try to guess what the meaning of the word is...

The political system that dominates the united states, as typified by the repukes and the de-mods, is antipodean to the the mission and desires of the real progressive/leftist movement. The prog/left movement being made up of people who have been marginalized and oppressed by the elite military-industrialists, naturally opposes the continued dominance of the capitalistic system at the expense of the dignity and standard of living of all peoples of the world. The de-mods for all their trumpeting of "concern for the working american" is but a "kinder and gentler face" of a system that since W.W.II has violently instituted global corporate dominance by companies and their boards, whose interests are antipodal to the interests of the vast majority of the rest of us.

It is obvious to most of the worlds population, that most of the people in the united states refuse to see that the reality of our govt’s real intentions and mission in the world is antipodean to our cherished belief about ourselves, and our government, that we exist as a shining beacon of hope and justice. In fact our government, at the behest of major corporations, has systematically worked to insure these corporations' dominance in the world. In the process, it has ruthlessly destroyed hope and justice for a vast majority of the worlds people.

For those interested in learning the real history of american intervention in the interests of Bechtel, Halliburton, Standard Oil and United Fruit, which I’m sure very few de-mods and absolutely no repukes are, I direct you to these resources:

Confessions of an Economic Hitman


Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II.

So, boys and girls remember the darkness of ignorance is antipodal to the the truth which is the light, seek the light....


adj. : relating to the antipodes or situated at opposite sides of the earth; "antodpodean latitudes"; "antipodal regions of the earth"; "antipodal points on a sphere" [syn: antipodal]

What's Wrong With Dating? A Christidan Overview of Dating and Courtship:

This is the kind of crap that the christian right wants to base the laws of the u.s. on! Do you really trust idiots that believe in stoning girls in front of their parents homes?

" 'But if the
thing is true, and evidences of virginity are not found for the young
woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her
father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with
stones, because she has done a disgraceful thing in Israel, to play
the harlot in her father's house. So you shall put away the evil from
among you' (Deuteronomy. 22:20-21)."

of marriage, welfare reform, war, kill, evil liberals. . . so much to fight, so
much to destroy."

I don't think it's right that people that actually follow the words Christ should have to stop calling themselves Christian. Instead I think it is time that Christians and non Christians alike call the fundamentalist right what they really are. TERRORISTS! They seek to destroy those things that we hold dear in this country, compassion, equality, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The fundamentalist right is every bit as dangerous and reprehensible as the most violent whabiist
imam in saudi arabia. They are truly the american taliban.

The religious right of 21st Century America is anti-American, inherently violent, and a cruel, tyrannical, punitive, force of death and destruction. In its mindset, adult human lives do not matter because the human condition itself is inherently evil resulting in eternal and everlasting punishment in hell unless its members are redeemed in a prescribed manner by the fundamentalist God/man/savior, Jesus Christ.

Scariest Music Video ... Ever / Meet Dennis Madalone. He loves America. Really, *really* loves America. Oh, and sad '80s haircuts. Watch and learn:

"Just for a moment. I want to live the naivete, swim in tepid pools of happy blissful ignorance, regrow my hair past my shoulders and love my country so blindly and unquestioningly that everyone and everything becomes sweet and sticky and warm, like giant mealworms of love. This is, I imagine, how a mental patient must feel."

Terrorism isn't terrorism when you kill commie babies!

AxisofLogic/ News - Americas:

"WIM Dankbar, a Dutch specialist on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, suspects that Luis Posada Carriles has highly discriminating evidence against Bush Sr. that could be divulged if the terrorist should die a suspicious death. In an interview with Granma International, Wim Dankbaar (www.jfkmurdersolved.com), who financed a new investigation into the death of Kennedy in cooperation with retired FBI agents, is not hiding his shock at the "reappearance" of international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles in Miami, which he: "cannot understand."

�'This is just astounding.�The apathy of the media even more so', he continues, 'Why isn't any media source writing that the man was not pardoned from his sentence for killing 73 people, but that he escaped and is still a convicted terrorist on the loose?'"

"Oh the tangled webs we weave..."

And by the way why is it ok for convicted terrorist to walk the streets of miami a free man? Oh yeah.. that's right he blew up a plane full of commies. That's not a crime, that's the american way!

Kerry Pissed!!

Caucuses tardy on paperwork:

"Kerry is said to be furious at Dayton after he enthusiastically endorsed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) for president in 2008 at a Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party event in Minneapolis earlier this month. Dayton introduced Clinton as "the next great president of the United States." Dayton told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Kerry approached him on the Senate floor two days later "with daggers in his eyes and said,"What are you doing endorsing my 2008 presidential opponent?" He was very serious."

So now it all makes sense. Kerry really didn't want to win the election, why would he? An unwinnable war, repukes. The biggest deficit in history, the repukes! Rape of the economy and he environment, repukes!! Let bushy boy's house of cards come crashing down so that the demods can come in and save the day. Well...just remember that the demods in large numbers have supported the war, voted to fuck the education system, protected the predatory credit practices of the banking industry with the new bankruptcy laws, and generally presented their backsides for the enjoyment of the capitalist racketeers that really run this country. It's time to identify the enemy. It's them not us.

"The Importance of Fighting Zionism

The significance and the importance of our effort to expose Zionism and build opposition to it, is not only the immediate but modest changes that we might win and� might lose again, as so often is the case.� It is also �significant and important in that it enables us to� discuss with�our friends and neighbors and colleagues� the most important facts about the world in which we live - Facts which, when fully appreciated �by millions of people,�make it possible to really change the world in fundamental ways:

1. Elites foment ethnic/national wars and attack�ordinary people's�best values of equality and solidarity and democracy precisely for the purpose of controlling us;

2. The vast majority of people in the world share these very positive values and aspirations and they try to shape the little�corner of the world over which they have any control with these values,�in the face of elite attacks on their efforts;

3. Elites fear ordinary people coming to power so much that they resort to mass murder to foment ethnic/national wars to undercut the unity of the masses.

4. Our opposition to Zionism is part of something much bigger: the opposition of billions of people in the world to elite rule;

5. Numbers�1 through 4 mean that a revolution �to make a truly democratic and equal and solidaristic society is both necessary and possible.

These are the reasons why we are compelled to fight Zionism if we want real peace - not only in the Middle East but wherever a relatively few powerful men foment war and divide the people as a means of control and oppression.

Mike's Big Book of Songs

Mike's Big Book of Songs:

"you show your true colors, well I'll show mine
but I'll warn you now boo
my colors they're more red than white and blue
if you don't like it, go ahead and hit me
but i don't suffer fools and i don't play 'Dixie'
see that statue, that's general e. lee
they should knock him on his ass if you ask me
i ain't no gray coat as you can see
i don't suffer fools and i don't play Dixie"

More on the theme started over atConstantly Amazed, Yet Never Suprised
on the stupidity of those of the "southern" persuasion.

Now don't get me wrong, there is so much to love about the south. I mean there's the music. And no I don't mean lynerd skynerd! They suck! free bird sucks! I'm sorry about the plane crash, really!!! If it hadn't been for that fucking plane crash lynard skynard, however you spell it, would be where they really belong in rock history, playing in backwater holiday inns and county fairs....

I mean artists like Louis Armstrong, Professor Longhair, Boozoo Chavis, the Allman Bros. Willie Nelson, Doug Sahm, the list goes on and on. Writers? Twain, Faulkner, Tennesse Williams, Truman Capote, again the list goes on and on.

Food... some of the best in the world, period.

I myse'f am a child of the south. My great grandfather on my mother's side was an arkansas volunteer captured in the early days of the war between the states who spent the rest of it in a prison camp in maryland.

Imagine! a bunch of pantywaists in a state named after a crossdresser holdin' my great grandpappy again' his will.

And I claim a tie to a certain southern general, John bell hood, because if no other reason exists, if you find a picture of him and cover up his beard with your hand, he looks just like my dad, and more and more like me too. It's the eyes man, it's the eyes.

So, back to my original rant about the south and how it seems like it has been unfairly blighted to hold a disproportionate percentage of the IDIOTS!!! in the u.s.

Why is this?

This is my theory,

It takes fertilizer to make plants grow.

A large majority of the population in the south seems to be nothing more than shit for brains. This explains the real beauty that comes out of the south.

Stop and smell the roses. Just watch where you step!

(DV) Blum: The Anti-Empire Report #20:

"Some questions for God

Word from Rome was that the favorite to become the new pope had been Cardinal Giusseppe Sicola of Italy.  But his candidacy failed because other cardinals were reluctant to have a Pope Sicola.

I would love to have been in heaven to see the pope's face when he discovered that there was no God.  As some people would love to see my face in heaven as I was confronted by God.  The difference is that John Paul would be terribly shocked, while I would be thrilled, although I'd have a number of questions to ask the Lord:

1) Who do you admire more -- the believer who goes to church and does good deeds because he hopes to be rewarded by you or at least not be punished by you, or the atheist who works to enhance human rights because that's the kind of society he wants to live in and not because he'll be judged in some future life by you?

2) Do you recognize al Qaeda as a faith-based initiative?

3) Why did you allow John Paul to work against liberation theology in Latin America?

4) How did this world become so unbearably cruel, corrupt, unjust, and stupid?  Did it reach this stage by chance, by -- you'll pardon the _expression -- evolution, or did you plan it this way?  Or did the devil make you do it?

5) Is it true that if you wanted us to go naked, we wouldn't have been born with clothing on?

Disconnect from Reality: How can they lead us when they don't know who we are?

"Poverty is an anomaly to rich people. It is very difficult to make out why people who want dinner do not ring the bell." – Walter Bagehot, 19th Century English economist

Reading this quote onWindspike’s site set me ‘a thinkin’ about  bushisms that illustrate a complete disconnect from reality. What I found was that the affliction is not limited to geeboy. He is obviously a product of the genetic aberrations of inbreeding.

 Bush Calls This "Uniquely American"?!?

It's sad when our administration doesn't live in reality.

THE PRESIDENT (geeboy): Good. Okay, Mary, tell us about yourself.

MS. MORNIN: Okay, I'm a divorced, single mother with three grown, adult children. I have one child, Robbie, who is mentally challenged, and I have two daughters.
THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?

MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.)

MS. MORNIN: Not much. Not much.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, hopefully, this will help you get you sleep to know that when we talk about Social Security, nothing changes.

 "But why should we hear about body bags and deaths and how many, what day it's going to happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Oh, I mean, it's, not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?" -- Barbara Bush (Newday.com,

 Visiting the exhibition hall of the National Grocers Association convention here, Mr. Bush (geeboy's daddy) lingered at the mock-up of a checkout lane. He signed his name on an electronic pad used to detect check forgeries.

"If some guy came in and spelled George Bush differently, could you catch it?" the President asked. "Yes," he was told, and he shook his head in wonder.

Then he grabbed a quart of milk, a light bulb and a bag of candy and ran them over an electronic scanner. The look of wonder flickered across his face again as he saw the item and price registered on the cash register screen.

"This is for checking out?" asked Mr. Bush. "I just took a tour through the exhibits here," he told the grocers later. "Amazed by some of the technology."

Marlin Fitzwater, the White House spokesman, assured reporters that he had seen the President in a grocery store. A year or so ago. In Kennebunkport.

"He walked in to find the King on an exercise bike, one that had the moving handlebars you're supposed to hold to work out your upper body at the same time. Elvis, in a tracksuit, was leaning back, pedalling, the handlebars moving in and out on their own, with a phone in one hand and a devilled egg in the other, a tray of devilled eggs balanced on his large belly and bits of egg between his fingers where he'd mushed them while eating. 'Do you exercise, Tom?' he asked. 'Yeah, I do Elvis, every day' replied Tom. 'Me too,' said Elvis."

...and you wonder while they called Elvis the "King"

War Without End :: View topic - Neoconning the Media:

"Every few years, we read of some set of events that imply the 'end of Neoconservatism.' Don't believe the hype. It would be hard to imagine a more profound rebuke to their world view than the various events that have followed in the wake of the Iraqi invasion.

The United States is now less safe, poorer, more hated and more constrained in its ability to fight terrorism than it was before the tragic loss of blood and treasure the war has demanded. And yet the Neocons have admitted almost no mistakes and continue to be rewarded with plum posts in the Bush administration. What doesn't kill them just makes them stronger. In their example lies many lessons for liberals, alas.

Let Them Eat Bombs The Doubling Of Child Malnutrition In Iraq Is Baffling:

"A report to the UN human rights commission in Geneva has concluded that Iraqi children were actually better off under Saddam Hussein than they are now.

This, of course, comes as a bitter blow for all those of us who, like George Bush and Tony Blair, honestly believe that children thrive best when we drop bombs on them from a great height, destroy their cities and blow up hospitals, schools and power stations."

Get this: According to the AFL-CIO's International Labor Communications Association, the future of organized labor depends upon, “championing the fight against racism, sexism, hetero-sexism, xenophobia, religious bias, and other forms of intolerance.” Uh, guys, the lesbians, the Unitarians, and the Wiccans are going to love it, but you’ve just alienated most of blue collar America. True, the working class is riddled with all those problems. But are you a church, or a workers’ union fighting for tangible things in workers’ lives? Are you too chickenshit to go after decent wages and health care? Whose side are these “labor communicators” on? The enemy is the rich capitalist class, not the dumb damned mook on the gut line at Tysons who bitches about Mexicans on the plucking belt."

Murderous Thugs

Murderous Thugs :

"Our country has been overtaken by murderous thugs....gangsters who lust after fortunes and power; never caring that their addictions are at the expense of our loved ones, and the blood of innocent people near and far. We've watched these thugs parade themselves before the whole world as if they are courageous advocates for Christian moral values....and for the spread of democracy. Yet we all know that they are now putting in place, all across this country, a system of voting that provides no way to validate the accuracy of the counting of the votes. Our loved ones have been buried in early graves even as these arrogant thugs parade themselves before the entire world, insisting that democracy is worth dying for, killing for, and destroying entire cities for, "

US involvement in 9/11? Still too many unanswered questions

San Francisco Bay Guardian News:

"To believe this theory, you have to believe U.S. officials are willing to allow the deaths of thousands of innocent people – and to perpetuate a vast set of lies and cover-ups – in order to further what they consider to be vital U.S. strategic and economic interests. Put another way, you have to believe the attacks of 9/11 could have been another in a long line of appalling events in U.S. history that were manipulated and, in some cases, entirely fabricated as a pretext for war – from the sinking of the Maine to the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

It's not terribly surprising that a lot of people – including people who are by no means crazy conspiracy theorists – are willing to consider that possibility."

Time for a new Centrist Party?

Karl Schwarz Order Info:

"First, every person on the Right and Left should have a frank talk with their Christian friends about how to spot the 14 traits of Fascism. Not in an argumentative approach or even an apologetic approach. Many Christians did not vote for Bush for three reasons - those being the lies, the killing for empire building and the obvious corruption, plundering and greed that is going on. However, had Kerry gotten into office his gang of Wealthy Elite backers would have been first in line for the same type of plundering just like Clinton's were. That is government as it is in our nation - sleazy, underhanded, non-representative of anyone but their own self-interests and their wealthy backers.

That changes when WE as American citizens put our feet down and let DC know that 'enough is enough'. They will only understand when we oust them from power.

Therefore, it is time for both the Far Left and Far Right to realize to what extent they are being played for fools, and move to the middle, form a massive voting block that will not tolerate the games that RANK and DNC now excel in for themselves and their wealthy elite backers.

"And while Bush continues to trumpet Afghanistan as a success story for American-exported democracy, U.S. troops are still dying there and the country's president is little more than the mayor of Kabul, the nation's capital, since the warlords, Al Qaeda and the Taliban control the rest of the country and have turned Afghanistan into the largest opium exporter in the world. (You'll note that Laura Bush's visit to Afghanistan matched her husband's Thanksgiving visit to the troops in Iraq for its photo-op brevity.) And we still can't find that pesky Osama bin Laden. Remember him? So much for success.

Meanwhile at home, while Bush continues his monomaniacal obsession with dismantling Social Security and his myopic refusal to accept that global warning is real, our gluttonous oil consumption is destroying our economy, and the carbon dioxide and other pollutants, such as mercury, that we continue to spew into the air, earth, and water are literally killing us.

How To Avoid The Draft Or National Service


Being willing (and eager) to fight for one's country when it is truly in danger is one thing.

If Jesus Returns, Karl Rove Will Kill Him

If Jesus Returns, Karl Rove Will Kill Him :

"But would Jesus stand for the slaughter of 100,000 Iraqis in his name merely because of oil and dubious Biblical prophecy? How would Christ view a president in love with the gas chamber and electric chair? What would Jesus, who hated hypocrisy above all, say about a Bush who scampers back to prolong the life of a brain-dead woman who wanted to die, but who gleefully executes 150 people as governor and as many more as president as he can get his hands on? How would Jesus cope with a self-proclaimed Divinity demanding the death penalty for children?"

The Loyal Opposition

The Loyal Opposition

Bush had behind him in the 2004 elections the most organized, powerful, and disciplined political group in the US: the Christian Zionists. Operating quietly and with high efficiency, right wing fundamentalists in the US have a solid infrastructure and a huge, dedicated membership. Bush and the Republicans are only a front for them. There are three reasons behind their strength - they are politically ambitious, they have no opposition to work against them or to warn others of their control of the political will in Washington DC, and they are out of their minds, believing that they have been personally chosen to implement Biblical prophecy and be saved. 

Targeting this bloc should be the role of any grassroots movement that is serious about changing the policies of global destruction now reigning in Washington. A force is needed with a clear political agenda to represent growing sectors of US society who oppose the ongoing imperialist and Zionist rampage. This force should have been the antiwar movement, but it is not so. People who claim to be working for peace and justice in the US don't even use the words "imperialist" and "Zionist" - a symptom not only of their inability to do anything about the causes of the war, but of their own very unseemly involvement in those causes.

I just spoke with a barrista at Empire Coffee (the old Map Room at the corner of Madison & Main). On Thursday Empire was contacted by someone who claimed to be a 'federal agent' and told that they were not allowed to display any signs critical of President Bush or his plans to dismantle Social Security. Empire posted a sign saying--and this is a paraphrase--- 'We have been informed that we aren't allowed to display signs critical of Bush. We would like to remind the authorities that the First Amendment also applies in Memphis.'"

Or, say I want to say Robert Byrd is a hypocritical lying dirtbag for comparing Republicans to Nazis, I can do that to.

If I wanted to write those things on a billboard and hang it up over my private place of business, I can do that too. Free speech is free speech. Period. We either have all of it, or we get none. No halfway measure. You'd think Washington gets this. You'd be wrong."

Do You Believe In Conspiracies?

Do You Believe In Conspiracies?: "The Helpless Voter Conspiracy is stupid because voters are not helpless. Rather, they are irresponsible, incompetent, and easily manipulated.

The voters can select anybody they want as president. Voters can refuse to vote if they don't like any of the candidates. Voters are even allowed to write a person's name on the ballot. This allows them to elect people who are not on the ballot, such as you or me. And they can throw government leaders out of office whenever they want, even if it is not an election year.

Another reason to kill your television

ARTICLE: Study: Post-9/11 news drove liberals toward a harder line: "Study: Post-9/11 news drove liberals toward a harder line
(Posted: 3/8/2005)

Dennis Chaptman

Liberals who gleaned most of their news from television in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks increased their support for expanded police powers, bringing them closer in line with the opinions of conservatives, a study by a UW-Madison researcher shows.

In contrast, heavy newspaper reading by liberals was related to lower levels of support for expanded police powers and for limits on privacy and freedom of information, basically reinforcing the differences between liberals and conservatives, says Dietram Scheufele, a journalism professor who conducted the study."

Jihad for Jesus: Faith-Based Imperialism

Jihad for Jesus: Faith-Based Imperialism: "If you live by the sword, you die by the sword. (Matthew 26:52) America does not have a terrorism problem because it is free and pure and good. Contrary to neocon spin, we did not go to bed on September 10, 2001 innocently minding our own business.

When you have troops in 130 countries around the world, you will inevitably have a few people hacked off at you. Because those who are hacked off at us lack the wherewithal to conquer us, they settle for making our lives miserable. Terror is a tactic dating back to the French Revolution. To think you can end terror by means of military adventurism is equivalent to thinking you can teach whales to tap dance.

Indeed, Pat Buchanan has pointed out that terror ends when foreign occupiers go home.

“The dynamiting of the King David Hotel convinced the British to accelerate their departure from Palestine. Zionist terror ended. Mau Mau terror ended when the Brits left Kenya. When De Gaulle cut Algeria loose, FLN terror ended. When Reagan withdrew his Marines from Beirut, anti-American terror ended in Lebanon.

“Lesson? The price of empire is terror. The price of occupation is terror. The price of interventionism is terror.”"

Italian jounalist's account of the shooting.

AxisofLogic/ Iraq: "The driver started shouting we were Italians, 'We are Italians! We are Italians . . .' Nicola Calipari dove on top of me to protect me and immediately, and I mean immediately, I felt his last breath as he died on me. I must have felt physical pain, I didn't know why. But I had a sudden thought: I recalled my abductors' words. They said they were deeply committed to releasing me, but that I had to be careful because 'the Americans don't want you to return.' Back then, as soon as they had said that, I had judged their words to be meaningless and ideological. In that moment such words risked to take the taste of the most bitter truth away. I can't tell the rest yet."

The Syrian Hoax, by Harry Browne

The Syrian Hoax, by Harry Browne

So What’s Doing in Syria & the Rest of the Middle East?

What, then, do we really know about the march to freedom and the Syrian threat?

1. There are 13,000 Syrian troops in Lebanon. There are 150,000 American troops in Iraq. Which is more of an invading, occupying army?

2. The Syrian troops in Lebanon are all in the countryside — ready to help restore order if needed, but generally out of sight of the Lebanese people. The American troops in Iraq are all over the place — killing insurgents and civilians alike while devastating cities like Fallujah.

3. There are no reports of Lebanese insurgents fighting the Syrian troops, while there are daily clashes between Iraqi insurgents and American troops.

4. As Pat Buchanan has pointed out, it would make no sense for the Syrians to have assassinated the Lebanese ex-Prime Minister — since they had to know that they would automatically become the #1 suspect and bring the wrath of Bush down upon their heads.

5. Syrian troops first invaded Lebanon at the time of the Gulf War. And while Syria was overrunning Lebanon, President George H.W. Bush was proudly listing Syria as a member of the coalition of nations fighting Saddam Hussein.

6. The Bush administration, as usual, won’t negotiate anything with anyone. The Bushies prefer to make accusations in the media, assert that they have evidence that no one ever gets to see, and incite Americans to hate another nation of human beings.

7. The claims that recent democratic developments in Arab countries prove that the Bush doctrine has succeeded are as premature as the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the USS Lincoln. I’m not aware of a single country in the Middle East in which the citizens have one iota more liberty than they did three years ago. All we’ve seen are tiny baby steps toward democracy — meaning that some people might get the opportunity to vote on who will officiate in their police states, just as the citizens of Iraq got to vote under the Hussein regime.

8. The TV pictures of a Lebanese crowd celebrating the fall of the pro-Syrian Lebanese government no more demonstrate the attitudes of all Lebanese than do the TV pictures of U.S. pro-abortion rallies demonstrate that all Americans (or even a majority) are in favor of abortions.

9. Despite the State Department’s human rights report of torture and other ghastly conditions inside Syria, the U.S. government has sent some of its "War on Terror" prisoners to Syria for interrogation — and, presumably, torture. And not one American politician is embarrassed by the contradiction.

Once again, the Bush administration has cried "Havoc!" and is gearing up to unleash the Dogs of War.

And if we’re smart, we won’t believe a word of it.

Democracy on the March!!!
Thank God for bushitler! Sieg Heil!!!

(DV) Reichel: Hunter S. Thompson and Constitutions

(DV) Reichel: Hunter S. Thompson and Constitutions: "All that has ever changed the world for the better are those who have fought for radical decentralization of power. Grand projects like continental constitutions are designed to serve the powerful few, who will quickly find their buddy within Brussels for carrying out their corporate interests. A neo-liberal Europe is not a united Europe: just a Europe tyrannized by a handful of giant corporations.

Hunter S. Thompson would describe this as business as usual in politics. He once wrote:

“Some people call politics fun, and maybe it is when you're winning. But even then it's a mean kind of fun, and more like the rising edge of a speed trip than anything peaceful or pleasant. Real happiness, in politics, is a wide-open hammer shot on some poor bastard who knows he's been trapped, but can't flee.”"

NotThisTimeGeorge.org - We are all "Good Germans" new http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article7424.htm

NotThisTimeGeorge.org - We are all "Good Germans" new http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article7424.htmHow much American psychic energy was required to 'forget' Reagan's 'freedom fighters' of Nicaragua ('the equivalent of our Founding Fathers', he was already demented enough to pronounce)? They used tactics learned at the famous US Army 'School of Americas' at Ft. Benning, Georgia, also known as 'School of the Assassins', whose distinguished graduates include Manuel Noriega and Omar Torrijos, formerly of Panama, and Roberto Violo of Argentina. The freedom fighters raped nuns and peasant women and used all sorts of lethal terror methods in the countryside to dislodge the elected government. Preferred targets were teachers and medical staff, but they bagged an Archbishop as well. A favorite horror method involved the stuffing of a grenade into the bleeding, broken-toothed mouth of an innocent man woman, and yes, even child (of course child, when you think about it) and then detonation in front of what might be left of the as-good-as-dead family. Well it seemed to work in the long run. Ronnie must have been proud. And looking at The Gipper's shiny coffin and poor Nancy's touching grief, how hard was it to forget Reagan's prior treasonous secret interference in foreign policy affairs in order to have the American hostages in Iran freed later rather than sooner, with arms as a reward, more cash to the freedom fighters for grenades, and coke to California as a byproduct? He forgot all about it, right away. Ollie too. I wonder if any one of those dignitaries was trying to forget Ronnie's pal 'Blowtorch Bob' (D'Aubisson) of El Salvador, and how he came to acquire his colorful sobriquet? Or even remember? 

All you right wing IDIOTS!!! that think raygun's picture should be put on money should be ashamed of yourselves. The only place his picture belongs is on a wanted poster or toilet paper!

Heads roll at Veterans Administration

Heads roll at Veterans Administration: "Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter charged Monday that the reason Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi stepped down earlier this month was the growing scandal surrounding the use of uranium munitions in the Iraq War.

Writing in Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter No. 169, Arthur N. Bernklau, executive director of Veterans for Constitutional Law in New York, stated, “The real reason for Mr. Principi’s departure was really never given, however a special report published by eminent scientist Leuren Moret naming depleted uranium as the definitive cause of the ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ has fed a growing scandal about the continued use of uranium munitions by the US Military.”"

How long are you going to be manipulated by this criminal regime?

How Dare Some Say, 'Support our Troops'?

How Dare Some Say, 'Support our Troops'? : "The pointless death and maiming of this war is pure insanity and probably even criminal. In this war, many times those who died in the World Trade Center have been wounded or killed. Over 1,400 American soldiers are dead, over 10,000 soldiers are physically wounded while uncounted others are psychologically wounded, and, by some estimates, over 100,000 Iraqis have been killed and maimed.

How can the killing be justified? Are we going to destroy a nation and kill its people to save it? We tried that once before.

Support our troops?

The Carpetbagger Report » Blessed are the warmongers: "Blessed are the warmongers

Posted 9:56 am | Printer Friendly

Not content with one venture into Mess O' Potamia, at least one Republican lawmaker seems anxious to start another – this time, with nukes.

Now we know where Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) thinks the weapons of mass destruction are buried: in Syria, which he said he'd like to nuke to smithereens.

Speaking at a veterans' celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas, on Feb. 19, Johnson told the crowd that he explained his theory to President Bush and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) on the porch of the White House one night.

Johnson said he told the president that night, 'Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on 'em and I'll make one pass. We won't have to worry about Syria anymore.'

The crowd roared with applause.

This is so twisted, it's hard to know where to start. Which of these is the most outrageous part of this story?

* That a sitting member of Congress is bragging about his desire to drop nuclear weapons?

* That Johnson has shared this idea with the president?

* That Johnson's favored approach to non-proliferation is an unprovoked nuclear attack?

* That this speech was delivered in a church?

* That Johnson's audience 'roared with applause'?

Carpetbagger reports, you decide.

A Culture of Pharisees 

A Culture of Pharisees : "We have become a culture of Pharisees. Instead of practicing an authentic spirituality of compassion, nonviolence, love and peace, we as a collective people have become self-righteous, arrogant, powerful, murderous hypocrites who dominate and kill others in the name of God. The Pharisees supported the brutal Roman rulers and soldiers, and lived off the comforts of the empire by running an elaborate banking system which charged an exorbitant fee for ordinary people just to worship God in the Temple. Since they taught that God was present only in the Temple, they were able to control the entire population. If anyone opposed their power or violated their law, the Pharisees could kill them on the spot, even in the holy sanctuary. 

Most North American Christians are now becoming more and more like these hypocritical Pharisees. We side with the rulers, the bankers, and the corporate millionaires and billionaires. We run the Pentagon, bless the bombing raids, support executions, make nuclear weapons and seek global domination for America as if that was what the nonviolent Jesus wants. And we dismiss anyone who disagrees with us. 

We have become a mean, vicious people, what the bible calls “stiff-necked people.” And we do it all with the mistaken belief that we have the blessing of God.

Daily Kos

Daily Kos: "Inside the hall, the biggest applause line of the event was generated early on when Santorum asked a rhetorical question about demographics and funding: 'what happens in 2008?' Before he could answer his own question, someone shouted 'Bush leaves office,' and the room went wild."


FEDERAL MURDER: "In an exclusive interview with American Free Press, Mrs. Yeaky said that her husband had been upset by something he had seen under the day care center during the rescue operation. He had wanted to go back and photograph it, but the officials would not let him onto the site again.

She said Yeakey had been ordered by his superiors at OCPD to rewrite his nine-page report to omit and alter certain facts and to condense it to but one page.

Moral Politics - A Morality-Based Political Test

I took both the long and short test. The long test showed that I was a moderate conservative who most closely aligns with Gerald Ford. I did vote for him, but I atribute that to being 18 as much as anything else. I came out socialist on the short test, go figure. All in all it's an interesting test but I think it could use some work


Hmmm!: "For those of us who find the entire manner in which the Kerry campaign was conducted 'odd', including Kerry's abrupt concession, this is simply more evidence to support the suspicion that Kerry threw the 2004 election."

(DV) Frank: Farewll Hope

(DV) Frank: Farewll Hope: "The party bigwigs are surely thrilled. Especially if Dean can fill their campaign coffers with a surplus of grassroots cash.

Hold on. Don’t kid yourself, though. This certainly doesn’t mean Dean won’t continue to hobnob with the corporate fat cats like his filthy predecessors.  And don’t count on Deano to disclose campaign finances either. Just look at Vermont where his boys gutted the only law that called for even the slightest transparency in the state’s public elections.

No, this whole DNC thing smells of rot. Let’s hope that the Deaniacs (the few not having multiple orgasms over this “success”) break ranks and hang Howard Dean and the Democrats out to dry like a pair of stanky old socks.  That’s the only way victory could ever come out of this calamity."

Highly radioactive, mildly radioactive, moderately radioactive.

The Atrocities Of A Pale Rider - John D. Negroponte

The Atrocities Of A Pale Rider - John D. Negroponte

I was stationed in Vietnam as a combat soldier at the same time Negroponte was assigned to Vietnam. It was there I saw some of my brothers laid low from heroin overdose. It was also there, that I promised myself that if I survived that war, I would initiate my own personal war against drug trafficking. In 1979, I became one of the very few Latinos DEA agents.

From 1985 to 1991, I was assigned to Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and El Salvador. As one of two DEA agents that covered those countries, I observed that our U.S. government was complicit in drug trafficking and human rights violations. The area was rife with rebellion, gunrunning, and a perception that communism was on the move towards our back yards. One of my job descriptions was to train members of their military intelligence on the interdiction of drugs. However, most of my time was spent assisting the CIA in training the death squads.

They unleashed a sadistic "scorched earth" campaign, basing itself on the murderous theory that the only way to combat the leftist guerrillas' resistance was to "empty the sea" in which the guerillas swam. Thus these death squads set about committing genocide against the indigenous population. The same blue prints that were used in Vietnam were implemented in Central America and once again, "worked." There are hundreds of secret cemeteries all over Central America, enough to us keep digging for another 10 years. There is no doubt that these same blueprints will be used in Iraq.

In Honduras, I saw first hand how Negroponte and General Alvarez committed some of the worst human rights violations ever committed against humanity in the Western Hemisphere. In 1994, the Honduran Human Rights Commission charged Negroponte personally with several human rights abuses.

Trust me!

Social InSecurity Calculator, Try it now!

Only Idiots Could Trust These Guys

Last year I read The Silent American a book by Graham Greene. It’s a fantastic book set in Vietnam just prior to the escalation of american involvement. Greene describes the CIA’s use of bicycle bombs to terrorize the populace of south vietnam. The bombings were then blamed on the vietcong. If such a scenario were merely a literary device used to entertain it would be easy enough to ignore it as such.

After 9/11 when holes began to appear in the official versions of events and hundreds of questions went unanswered, disturbing patterns began to emerge. Patterns which seem to support interpretations of the events surrounding 9/11 that point to either direct involvement, or complicity by some in the government, in the horror of that day.

The CIA has a long history of funding terroristic actions in order to advance it’s agenda. An article exploring some of this history can be found here.

If elements of the u.s. government are willing to use such measures over the course of decades against others to get what they want, then what would stop them from using these same methods against us? What is doubly disturbing is the people that dub surrounds himself with are often key players in many of these types of actions in other countries, indeed bushie boy’s daddy was the big guy in the CIA at one time.

It’s obvious that the real reasons for the invasion of Iraq have never been revealed by this administration. Bushco is not an organization known for its transparency.What we do know is a patchwork of leaks and reluctantly released documents that serve to futher implicate those in power of participation in a policy of deliberate deception of the american public.

Nothing they do encourages a sense of trust.
