ExxonMobil Tried to Mislead, Scientists Say

WASHINGTON -- ExxonMobil Corp. gave $16 million to 43 ideological groups between

1998 and 2005 in an effort to mislead the public by discrediting the science behind global

A Ford-Nixon Conspiracy? [VIDEO]

By Evan Derkacz
Posted on December 28, 2006, Printed on December 31, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/bloggers/evan/46007/

Through the stench of Ford hagiographies comes this story from the memory of

Nation publisher Victor Navasky.

Back when Ford penned his autobiography, the Nation got a hold of an early copy,

re-publishing portions indicating that Ford may or may not have made a deal with

Nixon to pardon or not pardon the disgraced president.

____________________________________________________________________

The Death Of John Kennedy

Why Nixon resigned instead of facing impeachment.

Nixon resigned over an obstruction of justice charge (with some of the legal groundwork

prepared by a young Hillary Rodham). Nixon resigned gracefully, the media declared the

incident over and Gerald Ford declared that it was time to "put the whole affair behind us

and move forward". This was done because the last thing anyone wanted in Washington D.C.

was an impeachment trial. Even Nixon's worst enemies dared not allow it. The reasoning

was simple. Sooner or later, someone would ask the following question.

"Why, when Nixon's re-election was a study in foregone conclusions, was it necessary

to break into the DNC headquarters at the Watergate?"

10 Films the US Government Would Rather You Not See

November 28th, 2006

These are 10 films that I believe if watched by the majority of US citizens there would be demands

of impeachment, a push

to pull out of Iraq and a complete shift in thought or at the very least some questioning of the

government.

It’s also amazing to me how few people have seen most of these films even the “popular” ones.

No Thanks to Thanksgiving

By Robert Jensen, AlterNet
Posted on November 23, 2006, Printed on November 25, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/story/44661/

One indication of moral progress in the United States would be the replacement of Thanksgiving Day

and its self-indulgent family feasting with a National Day of Atonement accompanied by a self-reflective

collective fasting.

In fact, indigenous people have offered such a model; since 1970 they have marked the fourth Thursday

of November as a Day of Mourning in a spiritual/political ceremony on Coles Hill overlooking Plymouth

Rock, Massachusetts, one of the early sites of the European invasion of the Americas.

Not only is the thought of such a change in this white-supremacist holiday impossible to imagine, but the

very mention of the idea sends most Americans into apoplectic fits -- which speaks volumes about our

historical hypocrisy and its relation to the contemporary politics of empire in the United States.

Global Research Editor's Note

This text by Vietnam War Veteran, author and peace
activist Brian Willson was first published by Global
Research in 2002. It outlines, what most people in
America do not know and which is particularly
relevant in assessing the alleged "threats" of North
Korea to global security

North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a
result of US led bombings in the 1950s. US military
sources confirm that 20 percent of north koreas'
population was killed off over a three year period of
intensive bombings:

Europe Moves To Kill The Internet
New EU rules would prevent uploading video
without a license

Steve Watson / Infowars.net | October 17 2006

The latest move to kill off online freedom and the spread of information comes in the

form of proposed EU legislation that would prevent users from uploading any form of

video, whether that be a hard hitting political documentary film or your friends goofing

around with diet coke and Mentos.

A proposed EU directive could extend broadcasting regulations to the internet, hitting

popular video-sharing websites such as YouTube., reports the London Times. This

would mean that websites and mobile phone services that feature video images would

have to conform to standards laid down in Brussels.

Chavez Calls Bush the Devil

by Hugo Chavez
Address to the UN
New York
September 20, 2006

Published on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 by CommonDreams.org

Representatives of the governments of the world, good morning to all of you. First of all,

I would like to invite you, very respectfully, to those who have not read this book, to read it.

Noam Chomsky, one of the most prestigious American and world intellectuals, Noam

Chomsky, and this is one of his most recent books, 'Hegemony or Survival: The

Imperialist Strategy of the United States.'" [Holds up book, waves it in front of

General Assembly.] "It's an excellent book to help us understand what has been

happening in the world throughout the 20th century, and what's happening now,

and the greatest threat looming over our planet.

The hegemonic pretensions of the American empire are placing at risk the very

survival of the human species. We continue to warn you about this danger and

we appeal to the people of the United States and the world to halt this threat,

which is like a sword hanging over our heads. I had considered reading from

this book, but, for the sake of time," [flips through the pages, which are numerous]

"I will just leave it as a recommendation.

“The National Security Act of ‘47 gave us the National Security Council. Never have we

had a National Security Council so concerned about the nation’s security that we’re

always looking for threats and looking how to orchestrate our society to oppose those

threats. National Security was invented, almost, in 1947, and now it has become the

prime mover of everything we do as measured against something we invented in 1947."

The real problem is most politicians only care about re-election and controlling

Congress. They do not learn from the past because they are and always have

been paid by the military/industrial/banking complex. This is a very detailed

logical talk about the hypocrisy and ineffectiveness of this country's foreign

policy for the past 100 years.

Where Bush's Arrogance Has Taken Us

By Jim Hightower, Hightower Lowdown
Posted on August 23, 2006, Printed on August 24, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/story/40678/

During his gubernatorial days in Texas, George W let slip a one-sentence

thought that unintentionally gave us a peek into his political soul. In hindsight,

it should've been loudly broadcast all across our land so people could've absorbed

it, contemplated its portent?and roundly rejected the guy's bid for the presidency.

On May 21, 1999, reacting to some satirical criticism of him, Bush snapped:

"There ought to be limits to freedom."

'President Bush is at the Helm of an Administration That

Won't Stop Lying'
Posted on Saturday, July 29 @ 09:41:38 EDT



The Bush Regime has killed tens of thousands of people in Iraq and Afghanistan, mainly women

and children. The deaths are excused as unintended "collateral damage" of the ongoing war, but the

deaths are nonetheless important to the tens of thousands of relatives and friends. An equally important

casualty of the Bush Regime is truth. The American public has been trained to obediently accept their

government's lies fed to them by their government's handmaiden, the US Media. No statement or claim

by a Bush Regime Official is too outlandish to be received with acceptance. Consider the claim by Donald

Rumsfeld, the US Secretary for War and Aggression, made to the Senate Defense Appropriations

Subcommittee on May 17, that Iran was to blame for the instability in Iraq.

Did the senators laugh Rumsfeld out of the room? No.

Did the media remind the "informed public" that it was actually the US invasion and unsuccessful

occupation, together with mass detentions, torture, slaughter of citizens and invasions of their homes,

destruction of infrastructure and entire cities, such as Fallujah, and removal of Saddam Hussein's government,

which kept the three Iraqi factions from each other's throats, that destabilized Iraq? Needless to say, no. The

only person in the Senate committee room who spoke the truth called Rumsfeld a liar and was hauled off by the police.

Clinton Economists: A Storm Is Coming

By William Greider, The Nation
Posted on July 17, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/story/38981/

When Robert Rubin speaks his mind, his thoughts on economic policy are the gold standard

for the Democratic Party. The former Treasury Secretary, now executive co-chair of Citigroup,

captured the party's allegiance in the 1990s as principal architect of Bill Clinton's governing strategy,

the conservative approach known as "Rubinomics" (or less often "Clintonomics"). Balancing the

budget and aggressively pushing trade liberalization went hard against liberal intentions and the party's

working-class base. But when Clinton's second term ended in booming prosperity, full employment

and rising wages, most Democrats told themselves, Listen to Bob Rubin and good things happen.

So it's a big deal when Robert Rubin changes the subject and begins to talk about income inequality

as "a deeply troubling fact of American economic life" that threatens the trading system, even the

stability of "capitalist, democratic society." More startling, Rubin now freely acknowledges what the

American establishment for many years denied or dismissed as inconsequential--globalization's role in

generating the thirty-year stagnation of US wages, squeezing middle-class families and below, while

directing income growth mainly to the upper brackets. A lot of Americans already knew this. Critics of

"free trade" have been saying as much for years. But when Bob Rubin says it, his words can move

politicians, if not financial markets.

'The GOP Steals Another Election, This Time in Mexico'
Posted on Thursday, July 13 @ 09:38:06 EDT



DUMMERSTON, Vt. - If only Al Gore and John Kerry could have been more like Andres

Manuel Lopez Obrador and Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD).

In the face of widespread fraud and trickery in the July 2 Mexican presidential election, Lopez

Obrador and his party haven't conceded. Hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets to protest,

and Lopez Obrador has gone to court to appeal the result.

He says there is evidence of computerized manipulation of election results and other voting fraud. He

wants authorities to conduct a manual recount of all 42 million votes cast in the July 2 election.

Unfortunately, the press is behaving the same way it did in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004 - pretending

that a free and fair election took place and writing off the complaints of fraud as whining by sore losers.

Contender Alleges Mexico Vote Was Rigged
Populist's Plan for Legal Challenge Ignites Boisterous Crowd at Massive Rally in Capital

By Manuel Roig-Franzia
Washington Post Foreign Service
Sunday, July 9, 2006; A01

MEXICO CITY, July 8 -- Downtown Mexico City swelled Saturday with the accumulated

frustration and rage of the poor, who were stoked into a sign-waving, fist-pumping frenzy by

new fraud allegations that failed populist candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador hopes will

overturn the results of Mexico's presidential election.

López Obrador ignited the smoldering emotions of his followers Saturday morning, alleging for

the first time that Mexico's electoral commission had rigged its computers before the July 2

election to ensure the half-percentage-point victory of Felipe Calderón, a champion of free trade.

In a news conference before the rally, López Obrador called Calderón "an employee" of Mexico's

powerful upper classes and said a victory by his conservative opponent would be "morally impossible."

Death by Video: Mexico’s Election Fraud Is Coming Undone

Video and Audio Evidence, an Outraged Citizenry, and Panic from the White House

Are Converging to Make López Obrador the Next Mexican President

By Al Giordano
Part III of a Special Series for The Narco News Bulletin

July 11, 2006

At six p.m. last night, Monday, July 10, neighbors of the office of the Federal Electoral Institute

(IFE, in its Spanish initials) in Comalcalco, Tabasco, witnessed a crime against democracy. They

didn’t just stand there. They did something about it. And this one small example of the fighting spirit

of the Mexican people explains why the historic presidential election fraud of July 2, 2006 will not stand.

Nine days after the fact, neither the IFE, nor President Vicente Fox, nor his National Action Party (PAN),

nor their candidate Felipe Calderón, nor the Commercial Media at their service, have been able to reassert

control over the juggernaut of facts, audio and video evidence, and public outrage that today tramples their

anti-democratic gambit. The Fraud of 2006, and those who attempted it, are drowning under an authentically

democratic tide. Take, for example, what just occurred in the Tabasco town of Comalcalco.

The Neocon Battle for Media

By Robert Parry
June 29, 2006

Since the 1980s, when the neoconservatives burst onto the Washington scene, they have

always understood the power that comes from controlling the flow of information that passes

from the U.S. government to the news media and then to the American people.

This transmission of information through Washington was to these savvy neoconservatives what

a key railroad junction was to Civil War generals, a strategic switching point to be captured and exploited.

Just as the rapid movement of troops and supplies by rail was crucial to those old-time generals,

the dissemination of favored facts and sometimes disinformation via the media was vital to these neocon

“information warriors” who saw their conflict as a “war of ideas” with fronts, both foreign and domestic.

The New World Order Story

By Davidson Loehr

03/05/06 "ICH" -- -- As we struggle to put the events of and following 9-11-2001 into

the most complete perspective, we’re hampered by having to find a way through the minefields

of “conspiracy theory” accusations. There are so many parts to consider, it’s almost impossible

to argue from any one event. If we argue that the Bush administration was complicit in the attacks

of 9-11 — that they intentionally murdered 3,000 Americans in order to further their imperialistic

agenda abroad and their transformation of America into a command-and-control plutocracy here at

home — a hundred others will pick holes in individual pieces of the 9-11 conspiracy theory, and

derail the argument rather than clarifying or advancing it. It’s like trying to pick up Jell-O without

the bowl.

Nor can this ever be a merely intellectual game. Suggesting that our own leaders orchestrated the

murders of 9-11 — while proposing Arab Muslims as perhaps no more than the fictional enemy

toward which they hope to direct American scorn and fury — this idea evokes deep and powerful

resentment and resistance, whether it is true or not.

Author David Ray Griffin, whose research I’ll be using for some parts of this essay, quotes from a

stunning letter to the Los Angeles Times Magazine from September 18, 2005 from William Yarchin

of Huntington Beach, California:

“The number of contradictions in the official version of … 9/11 is so overwhelming that …

it simply cannot be believed. Yet … the official version cannot be abandoned because the

implication of rejecting it is far too disturbing: that we are subject to a government conspiracy

of “X-Files” proportions and insidiousness.”

The Other Cheney Behind the Scenes

By Robert Dreyfuss, The American Prospect
Posted on June 13, 2006, Printed on June 13, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/story/37490/

At the very heart of U.S. Middle East policy, from the war in Iraq to pressure for regime

change in Iran and Syria to the spread of free-market democracy in the region, sits the

39-year-old daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney. Elizabeth "Liz" Cheney, appointed to

her post in February 2005, has a tongue-twisting title: principal deputy assistant secretary of

state for Near Eastern Affairs and coordinator for broader Middle East and North Africa

initiatives. By all accounts, it is an enormously powerful post, and one for which she is uniquely

unqualified.

During the past 15 months, Elizabeth Cheney has met with and bolstered a gaggle of Syrian exiles,

often in tandem with John Hannah and David Wurmser, top officials in the Office of the Vice

President (OVP); has pressed hard for money to accelerate the administration's ever more overt

campaign for forced regime change in both Damascus and Teheran; and has overseen an increasingly

discredited push for American-inspired democratic reform from Morocco to Iran.

Political Amnesia Is the Enemy

By Danny Schechter, MediaChannel.org
Posted on May 27, 2006, Printed on May 28, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/story/36743/

We all know, all of us in America anyway, that Memorial Day weekend marks the start of

summer. It's about the downtime ahead, the vacation that's coming, the shutting down of the

serious in anticipation of fun in the sun.

Officially, it is also about honoring the dead, and there will be parades by veterans and flags flying

on TV newscasts. Most of it is set in the present with little referencing of the past or memory itself.

Memories work on us on every level, especially when they slip out of mind. A memory exhibit at

San Francisco's Exploratorium museum touches on the usual: "You get to school and realize you

forgot your lunch at home. You take a test, and you can't remember half the answers. You see the

new kid who just joined your class, and you can't remember his name. Some days, it seems like your

brain is taking a holiday -- you can't remember anything!"

But memories are not just individual properties. Societies have memories, or should. And our news

world and information technologies could or should have the capacity to keep us in touch with our

collective memory, our recent history, the only context in which new facts find meaning.

MI6 Are The Lords Of The Global Drug Trade

Commentary By James Casbolt, Former MI6 Agent


It may be a revelation to many people that the global drug trade is controlled and run by

the intelligence agencies. In this global drug trade British intelligence reigns supreme.

As intelligence insiders know MI5 and MI6 control many of the other intelligence agencies

in the world (CIA, MOSSAD etc) in a vast web of intrigue and corruption that has its global

power base in the city of London, the square mile.

My name is James Casbolt and I worked for MI6 in 'black ops' cocaine trafficking with the

IRA and MOSSAD in London and Brighton between 1995 and 1999. My father Peter Casbolt

was also MI6 and worked with the CIA and mafia in Rome, trafficking cocaine into Britain.

Letter From President Of Iran To George Bush

By Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
12 May, 2006
Le Monde
Mr. George Bush, President of the United States of America,

For sometime now I have been thinking, how one can justify the undeniable contradictions

that exist in the international arena -- which are being constantly debated, especially in political

forums and amongst university students. Many questions remain unanswered. These have

prompted me to discuss some of the contradictions and questions, in the hopes that it might

bring about an opportunity to redress them.

Can one be a follower of Jesus Christ (PBUH), the great Messenger of God, feel obliged to

respect human rights, present liberalism as a civilization model, announce one's opposition to the

proliferation of nuclear weapons and WMDs, make War and Terror his slogan, and finally, work

towards the establishment of a unified international community – a community which Christ and

the virtuous of the Earth will one day govern, but at the same time, have countries attacked; the

lives, reputations and possessions of people destroyed and on the slight chance of the … of a …

criminals in a village city, or convoy for example the entire village, city or convey set ablaze.

JFK-2 - The Bush Connection
 
This film brought it all together for me. I think everyone in the 911

to Kennedy as you watch this. The film doesn't mention that Kennedy was 
a proponent of returning to the gold standard. But the film is great 
about explaining the connections between the Bush family, the CIA, 
fascism and the Kennedy assasination.

Comments On David Sirota's New Book: Hostile Takeover

By Stephen Lendman

12 May, 2006
Countercurrents.org

I'd like to begin my commentary on David Sirota's important new book Hostile Takeover

with my strong endorsement of his fine work. Everyone should read it to learn what's really

going on around us that affects us all in the most important ways I know and which most

people at best only vaguely understand on many if not most of the major issues. Those who

read it will learn in stunning and graphic detail how large corporations in league with government

at all levels serving their interests and not ours are destroying the democratic pillars of our society.

The result now evident when we know the facts David presents is a great irreversible harm to the

great majority unless we can collectively act in time to reverse the destructive path and economically

downward trajectory we're now on - all planned and implemented by our elected officials in service

to their generous corporate benefactors. In his important book, David lucidly explains the problem in

detail and gives us an action plan to fight back.

Bush Clears Way for Corporate Domination

By Joshua Holland, AlterNet
Posted on May 5, 2006, Printed on May 5, 2006
http://www.alternet.org/story/35846/

When George W. Bush says that he wants to spread freedom to every corner of

the earth, he means it.

But of course the president that turned Soviet-era gulags into secret CIA prisons in

order to do God-knows-what to God-knows-whom isn't talking about individual

freedom. He means corporate freedom -- freedom for the great multinationals to extract

everything they can from the world's resources and labor without the hindrance of public

interest laws, environmental regulations or worker protections.

Bush's vision of a free world actually looks just like the corporate globalization agenda pushed by

a succession of American presidents in institutions like the World Trade Organization.

But this administration yearns for freedom too much to leave it up to trade negotiators. Unlike his

predecessors, Bush isn't content to use carrots and sticks and a liberal dose of arm twisting to

advance that agenda. His administration has made the neoliberal policies euphemistically referred

to as "free-trade" a centerpiece of its national security policy.

Bush is willing to use the awesome force of the United States military to guarantee the freedom

of the world's largest multinationals.

The United States Of Israel?

By Robert Fisk

28 April, 2006
The Independent

Across the United States, there is growing evidence that the Israeli and neo-conservative

lobbies are acquiring ever greater power. The cancellation by a New York theatre company

of My Name is Rachel Corrie - a play based on the writings of the young American girl

crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza in 2003 - has deeply shocked liberal

Jewish Americans, not least because it was Jewish American complaints that got the performance pulled.

"How can the West condemn the Islamic world for not accepting Mohamed cartoons,"

Philip Weiss asked in The Nation, "when a Western writer who speaks out on behalf of

Palestinians is silenced? And why is it that Europe and Israel itself have a healthier debate

over Palestinian human rights than we can have here?" Corrie died trying to prevent the

destruction of a Palestinian home. Enemies of the play falsely claim that she was trying to

stop the Israelis from collapsing a tunnel used to smuggle weapons. Hateful e-mails were

written about Corrie. Weiss quotes one that reads: "Rachel Corrie won't get 72 virgins but she

got what she wanted."

A Culture of Corruption
Let's Save Our Democracy by Getting Money Out of Politics
 by Bill Moyers Thursday, April 6, 2006 the Washington Spectator 
 http://www.commondreams.org/views06/0406-29.htm
 
  
 Money is choking our democracy to death. Our elections are bought out
 from under us and our public officials are doing the bidding of
 mercenaries. So powerful is the hold of wealth on politics that we
 cannot say America is working for all Americans. The majority may
 support such broad social goals as affordable medical coverage for
 all, decent wages for working people, safe working conditions, a
 secure retirement, and clean air and water, but there is no 
government "of, by, and for the people" to deliver on those aspirations.
 Our system of privately financed campaigns has shut regular people 
out of any meaningful participation in democracy. Less than one-half of
 one percent of all Americans made a political contribution of $200 or
 more to a federal candidate in 2004. When the average cost of winning
 a seat in the House of Representatives has topped $1 million, we can
 no longer refer to that chamber as "The People's House." Congress
 belongs to the highest bidder.

Illegal Funding of CIA for Special Ops

The Suppressed Article

This is the article which had been scheduled to appear in the Washington Post. After having

cleared the legal department for all possible questions of inaccurate statements, the article was

scheduled for publication when just as the presses were set to roll, Washington Post Managing

Editor Bob Kaiser (Like George Bush, a member of the infamous "Skull & Bones Fraternity),

killed the article without explanation. According to the sidebar which appeared with the Penthouse

Magazine version of this story, Bob Kaiser refused to even meet with Sally Denton and Roger Morris,

hiding in his office while his secretary made excuses.

This is the story that couldn't be suppressed. An investigative report into a scandal that haunts

the reputations of three presidents - Reagan, Bush, and Clinton.

US Planning Fourth Attempt To Oust Hugo Chavez

By Stephen Lendman

18 April, 2006
Countercurrents.org

This essay has a duel purpose. I began it initially to explain how sophisticated and effective

the dominant corporate media is in programming the public mind to believe whatever message

they deliver regardless of whether it's true which it rarely is. I chose the title Reeducation 101 -

Defogging and Reversing the Corporate Media's Programming of the Public Mind which I'm now

using as the heading of my introductory section. Along with that discussion, I then planned a detailed

case study example of how they're doing it by demonizing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias

with a building and resonating drumbeat of invective in advance of the US government's fourth attempt

to oust him. That discussion follows my introductory section.

Imminent Decline Of Empire?

By Ramzy Baroud

12 April, 2006
Countercurrents.org


The miscalculated policies of the US administration in the Middle East are quickly depleting the

country’s ability to sustain its once unchallenged global position. Winds of change are blowing

everywhere, and there is little that Washington’s ideologues can do to stop it.

The above claim is increasingly finding its way into the realm of mainstream thinking, despite all

attempts to mute or relegate its import. A recent speech by US Republican congressman and

chairman of the House of international relations committee, Henry Hyde was the focal point of

analysis by Martin Jacques in The Guardian. "Our power has the grave liability of rendering our

theories about the world immune from failure. But by becoming deaf to easily discerned warning

signs, we may ignore long-term costs that result from our actions and dismiss reverses that should

lead to a re-examination of our goals and means," Hyde said.

In his poignant analysis — decoding Hyde’s deliberately implicit thoughts — Jacques argued, "The

Bush administration stands guilty of an extraordinary act of imperial overreach which has left the

US more internationally isolated than ever before, seriously stretched financially, and guilty of neglect

in east Asia and elsewhere."

What if Crazy Conspiracy Theories Are Actually Correct?
Date: Monday, April 03 @ 10:15:03 EDT
Topic: War & Terrorism


 

We've all read books and seen movies about astonishing crimes perpetrated by those completely

without scruples. Usually they involve individuals or gangs, and we understand the selfishly immoral

motivation. Are corporations or government really that different?

The United States isn't at war with Islam, or even "terrorism."

George Bush invaded Iraq to assure U.S. multinational-corporate access to oil, giving America a

decisive upper hand over its capitalist rivals. It's all about who'll be international top dog. Untold

billions of dollars are at stake. The same goes for Iran, Washington's likely, next target.

It isn't preposterous to think evil conspiracies are unfolding.

The War Drums Are Getting Louder

By Stephen Lendman

01 April, 2006
Countercurrents.org

The way things are today, why on earth would the "big fool lunatics in charge" in Washington

ever want another war or maybe two of them. Already they're "waist deep in the Big Muddy"

in two out-of-control debacles in the Middle East and Central Asia, and the country is leaching

multi-billions we don't have to pay for them. Despite this hopeless chaos, it looks almost certain

we're now headed for a new one against another Middle East 4-letter country beginning with the

letter "I", and may try to "double our displeasure" by including a "fracas in Caracas." I just learned

about an "Operation Bilbao" which appears to be blueprint to overthrow the Chavez government

and likely includes in it targeted assassinations starting with the guy in charge.

Weinberger, Bushes & Iran-Contra

By Robert Parry
March 29, 2006

On Christmas Eve Day 1992, as many Americans were wrapping holiday gifts or rushing

off to visit relatives, the nation’s history took a turn that blacked out key chapters of the

recent past and foreshadowed troubling developments in the future.

At the center of that historic moment was former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger,

who died on March 28 at the age of 88. In 1992, he was one of six defendants in the Iran-Contra

scandal who received Christmas Eve pardons from President George H.W. Bush less than a

month before Bush left office.

If Bush had not granted those pardons, Weinberger would have gone on trial in early 1993

facing perjury and obstruction charges, a courtroom drama that could have changed how

Americans perceived key figures from the Reagan administration, including Colin Powell and

President Bush himself.

US Nuclear Hypocrisy

By Doug Lorimer

23 March, 2006
Green Left Weekly

While pushing for international sanctions against Iran for pursuing its legal right under the

nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to research the production of nuclear fuel (low-enriched uranium),

US President George Bush has agreed to provide India with access to US civilian nuclear technology,

even though India has nuclear weapons and is not a signatory to the NPT.

The US-India deal, which was finalised by Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on

March 2, demonstrates Washington’s nuclear double standard. Under the deal, India will put only

14 of its 22 nuclear reactors under inspection by the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

to ensure that no nuclear material from them is used for military purposes. The other eight reactors

will continue to provide highly enriched uranium and plutonium for the construction of nuclear weapons.

India, regarded by the Pentagon as a “strategic partner”, is estimated to have about 100 nuclear bombs.

AMERICA PROGRAMMED FOR WAR

What Every American Should Know

By Brian Bogart

09/01/05 — For instruction in times of confusion, it is often best to look at the beginning. 

There is no more instructive a place for today’s condition than the start of the Cold War. 

This story contains within it the cause and solution: the weakest point in United States foreign

policy, and a legal basis for the strongest push toward a peaceful change of priorities by the most

dedicated people in America—you.

 

“In the counsels of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence,

whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex.  The potential for the disastrous

rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist.  We must never let the weight of this combination

endanger our liberties or democratic processes.”

 —President Dwight Eisenhower, upon leaving office; January 1961

'National Amnesia: An Interview with Gore Vidal'


Posted on Sunday, March 12 @ 09:02:06 EST

Novelist and political essayist Gore Vidal on Bush as a corporate puppet, the failure

of the media and our loss of a collective memory



Gore Vidal has been watching American political life for a long time and is liking less and

less of what he sees. Born to deep political connections including the Gore and Kennedy

clans, Vidal's early series of eight novels, including his debut, "Williwaw" (1946), and

"The City and the Pillar" (1948), established him as a major young post-World War II

novelist alongside Norman Mailer and Truman Capote. He ran for both the House and

the Senate, but it was his National Book Award-winning 1993 tome, "United States: Essays,

1952-1992," that established him as one of this country's most authoritative political commentators

on subjects from American dynasties, homosexuality, artists and intelligentsia.

More recently, he has savaged George W. Bush as a transparent corporate shill and an accomplice

in a grand betrayal of the polity in a barrage of essays including his 2004 collection, "Imperial

America: Reflections on the United States of Amnesia."

Nuclear India: A Future Menace?

By Ivan Eland
March 8, 2006

Editor's Note: George W. Bush's acceptance of India's rogue nuclear-weapons program

shows again how short-term political objectives can augur dangerous long-term consequences.

In the 1980s, the Reagan-Bush administration was so eager to use Pakistan as a route

to get Stinger missiles and other weapons to Osama bin-Laden and Islamic radicals

fighting Soviet troops in Afghanistan that CIA analysts were bullied into closing their

eyes to Pakistan's development of a nuclear bomb. Then, the Pakistani bomb-makers

contributed to nuclear proliferation both by selling the technology and giving rival India

an incentive to build its own bomb.

Bin-Laden, of course, switched from U.S. ally to U.S. enemy. Pakistan, while now run by a

pro-U.S. dictator, also is facing a rising tide of Islamic fundamentalism that could sooner

or later deliver Pakistan's nuclear bombs to a radical Islamic state and possibly to al-Qaeda.

Bush's public siding with India only increases that likelihood. Bush also is silent on Israel's

secret nuclear arsenal.

So, instead of developing a comprehensive strategy for reducing the nuclear danger in the Middle

East and South Asia, Bush's foreign-policy team is rewarding India for its defiance of non-proliferation

rules and concentrating international pressure on what appears to be a longer-term risk from Iran,

which most experts say is far away from developing a nuclear capability.

Dubai Port Deal is Nothing Compared to Ptech
By Devlin Buckley
Online Journal Contributing Writer
 
Mar 6, 2006, 00:49
 
While Congress and the media focus on the potential dangers of a UAE-owned 
company running American port operations, any possible threat is dwarfed by the 
current insecurity of the US government’s computer infrastructure, which has 
been compromised by a company with alleged multiple connections to terrorist 
financing.
 
The company, once known as Ptech (now GoAgile), has been contracted to provide 
sophisticated computer software to several government agencies, including the 
Army, the Air Force, Naval Air Command, Congress, the Department of Energy, the 
Department of Justice, Customs, the FAA, the IRS, NATO, the FBI, the Secret 
Service, and the White House.
 
Shortly after 9/11, the company’s primary investor, Yassin al-Qadi (al-Kadi), 
was identified by the US government as a specially designated global terrorist. 
Officials describe al-Qadi as one of Osama bin Laden’s "chief money 
launderers," and allege he transferred as much as $3 billion to al-Qaeda during 
the 1990s.

America Anesthetized

By Alex Sabbeth
March 5, 2006

The new Zogby poll gauging the opinions of American troops in Iraq has drawn

attention mostly because it finds that 72 percent believe the United States should

withdraw in a year or less and only 23 percent favor George W. Bush’s plan to

“stay the course.”

But the poll also illustrates the power of propaganda.

Shockingly, 85 percent of the troops questioned believe they are fighting in Iraq

“to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks” – one of the key Iraq War myths

built by Bush’s frequent juxtaposition of references to Osama bin-Laden and Saddam

Hussein.

This subliminal message has stuck with the vast majority of U.S. troops even though

Bush eventually acknowledged publicly that there is no evidence linking Saddam to

the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

In other words, more than eight in 10 of the U.S. soldiers and Marines in Iraq think

they are there avenging the 3,000 people killed on Sept. 11, even though the U.S.

government lacks evidence of the connection.

The Reality Of India-US Nuclear Deal

By Binu Mathew

03 March, 2006
Countercurrents.org

The nuclear deal with India is not a benevolent gift from the emperor to a client state.

It was a clever move to put India out of the competition for fossil fuels which is getting

ever scarcer. Bush spelt it out very cleverly in New Delhi - "It's in our economic interests

that India have a civilian nuclear power industry to help take the pressure off the global

demand for energy.To the extent that we can reduce demand for fossil fuels, it will help

the American consumer."

President Bush's Middle East Policy is without Rhyme or Reason.

Would Someone Please Interfere in Our Elections?
Posted on Wednesday, February 22 @ 09:51:58 EST

Superpower as Global Dependent


President Bush's Middle East policy is without rhyme or reason.

According to Bush and his neoconservatives, the only way to make America safe

from terrorists is to force democracy upon the Middle East. Only ideologues completely

ignorant of the Middle East could come to that conclusion.

Bush's invasion of Iraq turned a country with a secular government that suppressed

terrorism over to Shia Islamists allied with Iran.

Bush's invasion of Afghanistan turned the country back to warlordism from the unified polity

that the Taliban were achieving and revitalized the drug trade that helps to finance terrorism.

Bush's interference in the Palestinian election brought Hamas to office. Bush's interference

in Egyptian elections achieved gains for the Muslim Brotherhood. Bush's interference in the

Pakistani elections put half the country into Islamic hands.

PERMANENT BASES POINT TOWARD PERMANENT WAR:

IS THE NEOCON NIGHTMARE WINDING DOWN, OR JUST

GETTING STARTED?

Evan Augustine Peterson III, J.D., OrbStandard

"To initiate a war of aggression is, therefore, not only an international crime; it is the

supreme international crime, differing from other war crimes only in that it contains

within itself the accumulated evil of the whole." - Judgment of the International Military

Tribunal at Nuremberg, relating to "Count Two, the Crime of Aggression," as brought

against Herman Goering, Joachim von Ribbentrop, and 14 other defendants.

In Mr. Bush's "State 0f The Union" address, he claimed that "US forces will be drawn

down as Iraqi forces stand up." [1] However, this claim is flatly contradicted by the

Pentagon's ongoing multibillion-dollar expenditures for the construction of 106 permanent

bases - including six hi-tech "super-bases" - inside Iraq. [2]

Is there a reason why the USA's mainstream media won't report on those 106 bases, and

why Congress won't debate the Pentagon's base-construction projects? The simplest answer

is that the government-media complex has declared this subject taboo because it would reveal

the USA's intention to militarily occupy Iraq for decades. [3]

Iran-Pakistan-India Gas Pipeline in Trouble

By Paranjoy Guha Thakurta

14 February, 2006

NEW DELHI , Feb 14 (IPS) - Along with the possibility of international sanctions hanging over

Iran, the future of a 2,600 km pipeline to transport natural gas from Iran to India through Pakistan,

that is actively opposed by Washington, has fallen into jeopardy.

While the three regional governments are going through the motions of planning for the seven

billion US dollar project and say that it will be unaffected by an International Atomic Energy Agency

(IAEA) referral of Iran's nuclear dossier to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), analysts say

chances of the pipeline being built are now remote.

Pakistan's oil minister Amanullah Khan Jadoon will be visiting India for two days from Feb. 17 to

resume talks on the pipeline with Murli Deora, India's newly-appointed minister for petroleum and

natural gas.

Significantly, Deora is perceived as belonging to the pro-U.S. lobby within India's ruling Congress party

while Mani Shankar Aiyar, the man he replaced, a fortnight ago has openly socialist views.

Under Fire for Plame Leak,
Cheney Builds NSA Stone Wall

by Edward Spannaus

Vice President Dick Cheney, visibly and increasingly in the target zone in the criminal

investigation of the Valerie Plame obstruction-of-justice case, is desperately trying to

orchestrate the coverup around the National Security Agency domestic spying scandal.

Informed sources indicate that it was Cheney, not President Bush, who was behind the

illegal surveillance of Americans, and thus it is Cheney who is also most vulnerable in this

case, if and when the true scope of the spying operation becomes known.

It is openly acknowledged that it was the Vice President and his legal counsel, now chief of

staff, David Addington, who ordered that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales refuse to answer

any pertinent questions, during his embarrassing appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Feb. 6.

Lyndon LaRouche pointed out that Gonzales was, in effect, "taking the Fifth" in refusing to testify.

"Gonzales is refusing to honor his Constitutional obligations to report to the Senate," LaRouche said,

"and it's particularly dangerous at this time," pointing to the British-orchestrated confrontation

brewing between the United States and Iran.

TAKING ON THE PNAC

TAKING ON THE PNAC
Friday/Saturday, February 3-4, 2005
By Jeff Archer / Malcolm Lagauche
 

The Project for the New American Century, commonly called the PNAC, appears to

be just another initialed group to many. Few U.S. citizens are aware of the organization

and its goals.

To make my point, a few nights ago, I spoke to the Atheist Coalition of San Diego about

my upcoming book, The Mother of all Battles. There were about 70 people in the audience,

most of whom are above-average in political knowledge compared to the general public.

When I asked who had heard of the PNAC, only about 20 people raised their hands. This

shows that even many people who are politically aware lack knowledge of the group.

In 1997, the PNAC published its agenda. It is no secret. The group has a website

(www.newamericancentury.org) on which it states the 21st century is America's time to

take over the world militarily. It designates areas of the world by numbers and how and why

to get them conquered.

The Israeli Spy Ring

www.whatreallyhappened.com

Prior to 9/11, the FBI had discovered the presence of a massive spy ring inside

the United States run by the government of Israel. This seems a harsh gratitude

from a nation which obtains 10% of its annual budget from the American taxpayer,

$3+ billion a year. Over the years, American taxpayers have been required to send

Israel more than four times what the US spent to go to the moon.

A Criminal Administration

by Paul Craig Roberts
January 2, 2006

Caught in gratuitous and illegal spying on American citizens, the Bush administration has

defended its illegal activity and set the Justice (sic) Department on the trail of the person

or persons who informed the New York Times of Bush’s violation of law. Note the astounding

paradox: The Bush administration is caught red-handed in blatant illegality and responds by

trying to arrest the patriot who exposed the administration’s illegal behavior.

Bush has actually declared it treasonous to reveal his illegal behavior! His propagandists, who

masquerade as news organizations, have taken up the line: To reveal wrong-doing by the Bush

administration is to give aid and comfort to the enemy.

Compared to Spygate, Watergate was a kindergarden picnic. The Bush administration’s lies,

felonies, and illegalities have revealed it to be a criminal administration with a police state

mentality and police state methods. Now Bush and his attorney general have gone the final

step and declared Bush to be above the law. Bush aggressively mimics Hitler’s claim that

defense of the realm entitles him to ignore the rule of law.

Of The Evil Empire:

Imperialist Devastation of Peoples and the Evils Done in our Names

By Manuel Valenzuela

01/11/06  Information Clearing House- -- Let us for a few moments put aside our

lavish lifestyles of fortuitous endowment and providence that have made us blind to

the realities of billions of our fellow humans. Let us ignore our plasma televisions,

our DVDs, our two-story cookie cutter homes and gas-guzzling SUVs. Let us promise

to not open our overstocked pantries and refrigerators, or to go out and eat at one of

many corporate controlled franchise restaurants offering vast assortments of gargantuan

meals. We should ignore the opulence of our society that dwells permanently in our minds

that makes us forget the severe indigence and suffering that transpires beyond our shores

and borders.

In short, we should come out of our luxurious bubble that has shielded us from the evils

inflicted on billions of humans that have not been as privy to a life of safety and security.

Let us traverse the road of reality, sojourning through history and through mirages of

hidden truths. Let us dive into the making of the Evil Empire so that we may see what

our government has and continues to do in our name. The road ahead will not be easy

to swallow or comprehend, yet we must open our minds to the possibility that what has

happened is real and what is occurring is not fiction. Only then will we understand why

our hands are smeared in the blood of tens of millions of human cadavers and countless

more whose lives and futures have been devastated at the hands of the United States of

America. Only by knowing who and what we are can we correct ourselves.

THE  WHITE  HOUSE  SEVEN

(Click on Title to Go To Article)

( WHO'S  PULLING  THE  STRINGS )

 
Please take note that George Bush junior was but a teenager when 

the men mentioned below were appointed to powerful public offices 

by his father, former President George Bush senior.

Therefore George Bush junior,  a stranger to Washington, D.C,  had 

no way to know any of them except through his father.  Now they 

make up most of George Bush jr's administration.

Also note that - all - of them developed their pre-emptive military 

strike philosophy during their years with George Bush Senior's 

Administration between 1988 and 1992.

Then notice that every one of the following persons were selected 

for their respective posts in George Bush junior's administration 

LONG  BEFORE  September 11, 2001.  Therefore, no one can 

make the claim that they were "brought on board" George Bush 

junior's Administration for their expertise in dealing with the 

Sept. 11, 2001 bombing of the World Trade Center, because they 

were part of Bush junior's administration nine full months  before  

that happened.

No indeed.  They were all appointed to the George W. Bush 

Administration  through  George junior at the behest of his father, 

former President George Bush senior,  for the  SOLE  PURPOSE  

of pursuing his father's publicly announced policy of Pax Americana,  

The American Empire.

A Warning To The World

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones/Prison Planet | July 12 2005

The London bombings are a clear indication that the Globalists have not changed 

tactics and are getting ever more desperate to advance an agenda based on a simple 

time tested manipulation of fear.

It is now time for all governments who still operate outside of the control of the 

Globalists to come forward and join humanity in unveiling the real terrorists who are 

attempting to deform the world into a prison planet.

The message is clear, if you do not surrender all national sovereignty and control to 

the new world order, you will be targeted for elimination. They are coming for you. 

Sitting back and hoping it never comes to fruition is merely delaying the inevitable. 

The only hope your country and its future generations have will be protected by you 

standing up in unified opposition to the Globalists and helping to expose their state 

terror paradigm.
