Bush Security Sucks, The Almighty Buck Rules!!!

Coast Guard exposes holes in Dubai deal: "'There are many intelligence gaps, concerning the potential for DPW or P&O assets to support terrorist operations, that precludes an overall threat assessment' of the potential merger, an unclassified Coast Guard intelligence assessment said.

'The breadth of the intelligence gaps also infer potential unknown threats against a large number of potential vulnerabilities,' said the half-page assessment. Officials said it was an unclassified excerpt from a larger document."

Viet Dinh Vs Paul Craig Roberts

Viet Dinh Vs Paul Craig Roberts:
"Destroying America does not mean blowing up buildings. It means destroying the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the separation of powers. Al Qaeda is powerless to bring about such destruction. Only our own government, enabled by the public's
and Viet Dinh's and Attorney General Gonzales' endorsements of the Fuhrer Principle can destroy America."

Truthdig - Reports - A Coverup Under Two Presidents: The Unsolved Mystery of the Oklahoma City Bombing

Truthdig - Reports - A Coverup Under Two Presidents: The Unsolved Mystery of the Oklahoma City Bombing:

"The full lessons from all this remain to be learned, in part because we are very far from getting to the bottom of the mystery. But it's clear that the intelligence failures and institutional coverups we have seen in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks and the Iraq war are part of a historical pattern. The FBI, in common with other federal agencies, is interested in defending its own bureaucratic interests first and establishing the truth only a distant second. It is prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to avoid having to admit mistakes, even if that means allowing people suspected of posing a significant threat to public safety to go free.
Dennis Mahon, who is banned from travel to Britain and other countries because of his political activities, has never been seriously troubled by the Oklahoma City bomb investigators. Andreas Strassmeir was allowed to leave the United States and return to Germany in early 1996 even though it was clear at the time that he had had contact with McVeigh immediately before the bombing and might, at the very least, have made an important witness. Several of the ARA bank robbers, meanwhile, have completed their sentences and are now free."

Time to dig the tin hat out boys and girls! Actual footage of two people getting out of the Ryder truck before the bombing. And guess what? Terry Nichols wasn't either one. Let's see, McVeigh dead, Nichols in prison for life, and the third person? The third person and most likely others that were involved are still out there... Makes ya feel real secure doesn't it?

Bush's military budget costs us our future

Bush's military budget costs us our future:

"It's absurd that Washington will put $11 billion into a dog like the Crusader, but won't spend $2 billion to fund Head Start for every child. It' an embarrassment that they will sink another $9.3 billion next year into the vast vacuousness of Star Wars, but won't invest $1 billion a year for the next 10 years in the renovation of all of America's crumbling schools. It's criminal that they keep giving billions in insider deals to weapons contractors who's $13 billion of the previous funds they got, but Washington won't allocate $6 billion to provide health coverage for every uninsured child."

My theory is that the right wing "christians" would much rather see money given to merchants of death than see a "colored" child get something that they didn't earn by polishing shoes on the street corner.

All you idiot lickers of the bushchild, please correct me if I'm wrong.

A Scanner Darkly

The fact that the alternative truth and enlightenment movement resonates so well in Hollywood and that it is now seen as cool and urbane can only help our efforts to reach more people.

It also puts the final nail in the coffin of belated cultural stereotyping and media bias that attempted to portray enquiring minds as backwards toothless tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists.

Damn! I was just getting used to being thought of as one of the, "...backwards toothless tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists."

Hey, bushieboy! Can I have your oil!?!

Excite News:

"MILWAUKEE (AP) - Saying the nation is on the verge of technological breakthroughs that would 'startle' most Americans, President Bush on Monday outlined his energy proposals to help wean the country off foreign oil."

More pie in the sky crap from the persidunce that depends on the "rapture" crowd as his base. So I say, when it all happens and the righteous are arisen, can I have your car...and your oil?

(DV) Whitney: The Pentagon's War on the Internet

(DV) Whitney: The Pentagon's War on the Internet :

"The enemy, of course, is you, dear reader, or anyone who refuses to accept their role as a witless cog in New World Order. Seizing the internet is a prudent way of controlling every piece of information that one experiences from cradle to grave; all necessary for an orderly police state... The War Dept. is planning to insert itself into every area of the internet from blogs to chat rooms, from leftist web sites to editorial commentary. The objective is to challenge any tidbit of information that appears on the web that may counter the official narrative: the fairytale of benign American intervention to promote democracy and human rights across the planet."

Here ya' go people, the administration that just ok'd a 385 million dollar contract to Halliburton subsidiary, KBR to build detention centers in the u.s. now has someplace to lock up us pesky bloggers that dare challange the official version of the "truth".

* Note: The Associated Press reported on 2-13-06, “The government concluded its ‘Cyber Storm’ wargame Friday, its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.


“Participants confirmed parts of the worldwide simulation challenged government officials and industry executives to respond to deliberate misinformation campaigns and activist calls by Internet bloggers, online diarists whose ‘Web logs’ include political rantings and musings about current events.”

“Misinformation campaigns”? “Political rantings”? “Musings about current events”?

The administration’s resolve to foreclose on free speech has never been stronger and continues apace.

The System Is Broken Don't Try to Fix It, Leave It!!

The following articles support the conclusion I reached years ago. They also support the conclusion that many others are beginning to reach as the system stumbles down the path of eventual self destruction. Witness the recent spate of conservatives who have reached a level of disgust with the repukeagain party and have renamed themselves libertarian, or those former demods who are now greens or independents. It's the same conclusion that has been reached, if even subconsciously, by those millions of Usamericans that do not vote. I will be watching with interest the developments on the suggestions of the second author and will post here as they happen,

Albert Camus, Anarchism and the Individual:
"Camus confronts the stark reality that the individual, while preeminent in value and worth, is treated as chattel of the State. The reason that the populace allows this tragic injustice lies in their unwillingness to deal with the harsh fact that the most depraved among us strive to make regulations for the rest. The codes of society are generally adopted without scrutiny. When Camus
states: "Integrity has no need of rules", we are given an insight that few can digest. Their own lack of honesty, principle and integrity allows them to accept the madness that dominates society."

The End of Authority

So, now it’s time to call a time out and head to the sideline for a consultation. Just as anti-war movements haven’t put a dent in current or future conflicts, or the anti-poverty movements have failed to ease more inequality than is being generated, I think we should all agree that being against something is no longer tenuous. It’s time we begin to genuflect toward the future, and come to the realization that what is left of the body politic, in all but a handful of nations, is corrupted beyond reform.

Is Islamism soluble in Zapatism? Muslims, try to become Zapatista! WHAT IF SUBCOMMANDER MARCOS WAS MEHDI'S INCARNATION?

AxisofLogic/ Featured:

"But what do the Zapatista want? It is clear that their revolution pretends neither 'to change man' nor to build 'the new man' so dear to Bolsheviks and to all communists, whose dream was transformed in nightmare from Moscow to Pyong Yang, from Beijing to Tirana, Belgrade and Bucharest. And though they declare their solidarity with the Cuban people who suffer an Usamerican embargo for more than forty years now, they keep their distance from Fidel, whom Marcos has ironically and affectionately nicknamed... Schwarzenegger!"

What if Marcos, both speaker and "organic intellectual" of the ³real men², were the Mehdi? [6] Or, at least, the sub-Mehdi? Let¹s remember to conclude that the Mehdi, contrary to what badly informed Muslims believe, is not the guide, but the well-guided, a man whose skills as a chief are based upon his aptitude to listen both to Heaven and Earth, to God and men, a man who does not take his desires as reality, a man without any thirst of power.

In short, Marcos is the opposite of Osama bin Laden. From Bin Laden emanates a sinister ghostliness, while Marcos is vivacious and real. Whereas Bin Laden, a sort of telegenic reconstitution of the Old Man of the Mountain - the mythical chief of Hashishins - is a manipulated figure, Marcos can¹t be co-opted by the imperial system, because he has his feet well planted on Chiapas' mud and draws his force from the population who controls him.

Fantastic essay on the possibility of expanding the revolution from the bottom up!

Mohammed Cartoons Prep Europe For Bush Iran Attack

Mohammed Cartoons Prep Europe For Bush Iran Attack:


Much of the real urgency of the Anglo-American attack on Iran comes not from nonexistent nuclear devices, but from the planned March 20 opening of the Iran oil bourse, the first international exchange since 1945 where buyers and sellers of oil can conduct their oil transactions using a currency other than the US dollar, in this case,the euro. The Iran oil bourse threatens the number one pillar of US-UK world domination, the global hegemony of the dollar, as anchored in the dollar's central role in oil and other raw materials transactions.
With the Iranian oil bourse, as much as $1 trillion of central bank reserves may flee the US greenback into the euro, the yen, and other currencies. The concomitant exodus of hot money from Wall Street would then puncture the US stock bubble, the US housing bubble, and the US bubble economy generally,leading to a collapse of the dollar in international exchange and the dumping of hundreds of billions of dollars in US treasury bonds now in the hands of the Chinese and Japanese.

Read it and weep! They will use nukes against Iran to protect their power.

$262.00 a Barrel for Oil, maybe! | Specious Reasoning

$262.00 a Barrel for Oil, maybe! | Specious Reasoning: "Be afraid. Be very afraid.
That's the message from two of the world's most successful investors on the topic of high oil prices. One of them, Hermitage Capital's Bill Browder, has outlined six scenarios that could take oil up to a downright terrifying $262 a barrel."

Now I know why the U.S. Army is building a 12 foot high barbed wire fence all the way around the post here in Fairbanks. Bushco would shit bricks if we decided to establish the Independent Republic of Alaska ( IRA ) when the prices approach those levels!

what the hell!?!?

WOW!!! The months of thanksgiving and the birth of the christ child, and the start of a new year were rocky. I turned 48, my daughter turned 10 and a dear little girl that was the darling of our hometown swim team ( the coach's daughter) died at 20 months old, the victim of a 9mm glock. It was of course, unloaded. Died in the arms of her father. I know for a fact that every child killed by an american smart bomb creates another "insurgent" . If I could place the blame on something as simple as a smart bomb for that baby's death I'd be after the bastards that dropped it. I can't though, it was an accident, a horrible accident. I still support the right of us peons to bear arms. PLEASE DON'T BE STUPID WITH THEM THOUGH!

2 years ago in january a childhood friend and old college room mate died in Mesa Az, It took that long for the news to catch up to me. A rumor on the phone, an internet search, an obituary, short, to the point, no details. Shit... heart attack, O.D. who knows, when I can I'll fork out the cash to get his sister's # off one of those internet people searches and find out. I'll call the first woman I fell in love with, the one he married and then divorced and let her know too. So even though it's a little late here's a toast to a man who's gone, Goodbye James Dolamore,Jimmy D. here's to all the good times and all the bad. Even though it broke my heart to see you marry Heather and take her away, I loved you and her and still do. My only wish for you now is that the silence of death surrounds you forever with peace.
