The 9/11 Truth Political Party

I think everyone can agree that the campaign to get the information out there to the people has been a resounding success thus far, the results to every poll are a testament to that.

Is it time to take the next step and start wielding some of the power this movement has accumulated? It is often said that senior citizens wield a considerable amount of political might in the United States. For the most part this is because they have numbers and they get out and vote, reliably and consistantly. While I think their power has somewhat decreased in recent years, there can be no doubt that political candidates make concessions to this power, and even at times go out of their way to mollify them, if for no other reason than through the fear that this voting bloc may come out in strength against them. I feel that the Truth Movement could rival this power and most likely excede it.

We certainly have the numbers on our side. Just look at any of the many online polls and you see the numbers... remember the Charlie Sheen poll? How about the 0wnage of the United 93 forums? Hell, check some net traffic reports or data on search terms, 9/11 Truth sites are some of the busiest out there. That's some serious numbers.

As important as the numbers is the motivation. I think this speaks for itself. Seriously, untold thousands of people burning and a distrubting tens of thousands of videos, spreading the word, protesting. Has any movement in history spread so far so fast?

There is something else we can bring to the table, something extremely powerful and something they want more than anything. The power to spread information like its never been spread before. The Truth Movement itself, its numbers and its widespread message, is living proof of this power. It is the ultimate grass roots movement and still gaining momentum all the time. This is internet power, and then some. I think it's time we harnessed this power and wielded it creatively and with devastating results.

Look at the current elections, they are being fought tooth and nail, every seat counts and the balance of power is in play, ready to be swayed by a concerted effort (by some group like us). What do you think politicians would promise for tens of thousands (or more) of votes? How about a lightning fast tried and true "get the word out" internet campaign? How about a negative campaign against their opponents, performed by some of the most stuborn dirt-digging researchers in the world? How about an instant rally, or protest, when and where needed (have sign will travel)? How much would that be worth to a candidate? I think a whole helluva lot. They are already spending tens of millions of dollars to reach less people in a much more inefficient and ineffective manner.

Oh sure, they're catching on to this whole 'internet thing' and some of them even know what they're doing, but really they're out of their element and they know it. So, that brings us to the question; What can they do for us?

Of course, I know we're a very diverse community and we do not all agree on many of what they try to tell us are 'key issues', and that's okay. I think we can put all that aside for the greater good and concentrate on the ones that bring us together. In fact, I have a strong feeling that many of these so-called 'key issues' are nothing more than an attempt to divide the people.

I say keep it simple, stick to the basics and those issues that are related, at least at first. On the main issue; We do NOT ask someone to commit political suicide by going on the record screaming 'Inside Job!' or anything like that. We back candidates that are for opening a new and truly independent investigation, an investigation that has carte blanche power to subpoena anyone or anything, as well as unlimited clearance to review any and all evidence as well as the power to compel cooperation.

As for the 'related' category, support could be given for those who are willing to help undo the damage done by this crime. Ending the ridiculous wars the phony 9/11 lies led to would be a start, as well as repealing the laws this phony war on terror has engendered and of course securing internet freedom that we may continue our campaigns unimpeded.

It's simple economics. We're giving them something they want and in return we're getting some results. Woe to those that don't live up to any bargains they make, for we will keep track and those who cross us will face our wrath. Using these same skills, honed in researching and engaging in information warfare, which are coveted by politicians, we will have the ability to ensure compliance of any promisses made or ensure the end of the careers of those who do not deal fairly with us.

As time goes by and our stength is realized by more of them, we can expand the issues we back and field our own candidates (some are already in the mix and deserve our support), possibly even think about founding our own political party. The time has never been more ripe for a third party.

In essence, I'm saying... we've grown some muscles here... lets flex them.

And for the nay-sayers, let me just address some things in advance. I know full well the political system is corrupted, and I know there is rampant election fraud and vote rigging going on. I know all about the whole false left-right paradigm. The fact is though, as can clearly be seen by anyone, there are factions within our corrupt system and between those factions are cracks... we can wriggle into those cracks and try to do something. Further, the more boots on the ground we get out there, the less believable any frauds will be and that alone could be enough to get the masses riled up and ready for change. Finally, if nothing else, because we will have exausted every possible remedy before it comes to outright rebellion and insurection, and in the battle which is sure to ensue after that, we will have the moral high ground.

The one and only reservation I have regarding this plan would be that it may well be too late. I feel there is a good chance that we may be looking at martial law and a complete police state takeover sometime in the next few weeks, especially on election day or perhaps following the next soon to come false-flag attack... if that is the case, to those who survive I will see you in the underground resistance my brethren. Still, it is as likely things will be drawn out further and in that case we should definitely be implementing this power, and now. It may still be possible to nip this in the bud and prevent the nightmare scenario.

If there is any chance at all, shouldn't we take it?

Is the Bush administration burning evidence of their own crimes?

Thanks to a blogger we have this story, the mainstream media clowns seem to be ignoring it other than giving some periphery fire coverage.

I find this fire extremely suspicious myself. The building is listed as both empty and also as the HQ of the largest Army Intelligence unit in America. Weeks before Bush and his administration will possibly be facing sobpoenas and investigations, the warehouse which holds any incriminating evidence suddenly catches fire and burns uncontrollably? Can this even be real? Are we living in crazyworld?

This bit, from the units website makes me a little suspicous:

The tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001 made all of us in the intelligence community examine the way we conducted business particularly in the areas of force protection and combating terrorism. The 902d needed to rapidly fuse information, create comprehensive situational awareness products for the US Army and DoD, rapidly disseminate these products and share the information with a myriad of agencies. The Group also needed to develop a process that would improve its ability to predict where and when the terrorists might strike again in CONUS. To meet these new requirements of information fusion, situational awareness and predictive intelligence, the 902d created the organization known as the Counterintelligence Analysis Control Element (CI ACE) on 29 October 2001.

The CI ACE merged with the Group’s operational staff and the Army CI Center to form the Counterintelligence Integrated Analysis Center at the end of Fiscal Year 2002. This new organization, combined with the 902d’s subordinate battalions, allows the 902d MI Group to shape the future for Army counterintelligence in the 21st Century.

Most recently, with the added mission to provide intelligence support to OIF, the 902d MI Group deployed its first battalion sized Task Force, VIGILANT FREEDOM, consisting of both military and civilian personnel. This deployment signified a major landmark event in the Group’s history.

WTF? Was this place a repository for 9/11 related intel or something? This does not smell right.

And besides that all, this logo right from their website should give a chill to every conspiracy theorist in the world:

It's like a slap in the face people, wake up! THEY ARE BURNING THE INCRIMINATING DOCUMENTS!

Video: Olbermann Special Comment about Bush and Habeas Corpus

Olbermann's most recent special comments on Bush signing the Military Commision (torture) Act and deatroying the right of Habeas Corpus. This is a NEW video, and more chilling than his previous comments on this same subject. Listen to this dissenting voice while you can, under the new Torture Act, Olbermann could be jailed, held without trial and waterboarded for voicing these opinions. Of course being jailed under the very same unconsitutional law that you're speaking out against... well, if Bush could even understand the concept, he'd probably call that 'Ironicle'.

Video: Olbermann on Bush signing the Torture Act

Today, 135 years to the day after the last American President suspended habeus corpus, President Bush signed into law the Military Commissions Act of 2006. At it's worst, the legislation allows President Bush or Donald Rumsfeld to declare anyone -- US citizen or not -- an enemy combatant, lock them up and throw away the key without a chance to prove their innocence in a court of law. In other words, every thing the founding fathers fought the British empire to free themselves of was reversed today with the stroke of a pen.

George Washington University Constitutional Law professor, Jonathan Turley, joins Keith to talk about the law that Senator Feingold said would be seen as "a stain on our nations history."

Youtube, Video, Madonna, Second Life, Google, Myspace, Lost and Ipod. Are you fucking kidding me? Second Life takes the cake of course... people so tuned out of reality and so tuned into their virtual world that they actually need to receive news from the virtual side while ignoring the crumbling world around them. All of these things share a similar trait and that is escapism. The world around you is so utterly terrible that you need to blot it out by whatever means possible. Well guess what? As long as you ignore the problem, it's not going to get any better. Nobody is going to do it for you. Turn off the TV, put down the remote, ignore that bag of fungions, get the fuck up and go out and DO something. Change your world and realize that the hollow surfiet of distraction is not enough. It can be better, if you make it so.


Bush drives the final nail into the coffin of the Constitution

Holy crap... this is really unbelievable even though I knew it was coming. That criminal ursurper in the white house has signed th TORTURE BILL, thus sealing the fate of the constitution and laughing in the face of the founding fathers who fought so hard to prevent such a thing from happening. WHAT A FUCKING CUNT! I'm so disgusted I can't even write anymore about this now... it's nothing less than the end of America.

More later... if you want to read a rather slanted piece on this from the BBC, check this out.

Fuck fuck fuck... my country is gone.

Bush set to flee prosecution, readies refuge in Paraguay

Rumor has it that George W. Bush has purchased an extremely large tract of land in northern Paraguay. This source states:
Buenos Aires, Oct 13 (Prensa Latina) An Argentine official regarded the intention of the George W. Bush family to settle on the Acuifero Guarani (Paraguay) as surprising, besides being a bad signal for the governments of the region.

Luis D Elia, undersecretary for the Social Habitat in the Argentine Federal Planning Ministry, issued a memo partially reproduced by digital INFOBAE.com, in which he spoke of the purchase by Bush of a 98,842-acre farm in northern Paraguay, between Brazil and Bolivia.

The news circulated Thursday in non-official sources in Asuncion, Paraguay.

D Elia considered this Bush step counterproductive for the regional power expressed by Presidents Nestor Kirchner, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Evo Morales, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.

He said that "it is a bad signal that the Bush family is doing business with natural resources linked to the future of MERCOSUR."

The official pointed out that this situation could cause a hypothetical conflict of all the armies in the region, and called attention to the Bush family habit of associating business and politics.
An earlier report here mentions Bush Sr. as the purchaser, as well as a slightly different acreage (173,000 acres).

One wonders whether there was one purchase and both the particular George Bush in question and the acreage were mixed up or if each of them obtained a rather large tract of this land. George Sr taking 173,000 acres and George W. taking 98,842 acres. The combination of these two parcels would be utterly huge... a small country in itself practically. Ideal for an feudal estate or place of refuge for anyone fleeing prosecution.

Some noteworthy items to add to the mix:

--- Jenna Bush is currently in Paraguay, under the auspices of a UNICEF program, which states "The visit is strictly private in nature". As reported here:
Jenna Bush arrived Saturday in the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion on a commercial flight, then dined Sunday evening with Paraguayan President Nicanor Duarte and his family at their official residence. She also met with U.S. Ambassador James Cason

--- There seems to be a semi-covert U.S. military operation going on in Paraguay. From Wikipedia:
In 2006, a classified memo was leaked that revealed the United States has interest in an air base in Mariscal Estigarribia, Paraguay. This memo, authored by David Wurmser and Michael Maloof, [1] notes that both Wurmser, and Maloof had met the American neo-conservatives to discuss a plan to attack "terrorists" in the natural reserve rich South American region. About 500 US troops landed in at the air base in Mariscal Estigarribia, Paraguay in July 2005, after Paragua's senate voted to authorize immunity from the International Criminal Court. American occupation of this base would put the Bolivian gas fields at center stage of the region.
This story is also one of Project Censored's Top 25 Censored Stories of 2007

--- The land in question itself may encompass part of the GuaranĂ­ Aquifer, which is one of the world's largest aquifer systems and may be the largest single body of groundwater in the world.

--- This region is part of the famous "Drug corridor" which funnels south american cocaine to the rest of the world. The Bush connection to drug cartels has been noted before, as well as the florida flight school drug connection involving Mohamed Atta of 9/11 infamy. There is much speculation that FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds who is being kept from speaking out has information tying together the global drug trade, the nuclear black market and the attacks of September 11th.

--- The extradition treaty between the U.S. and Paraguay does NOT cover crimes of a 'political' nature.

So, what do we have here? A bunch of unrelated tid-bits or something more sinister? The GOP being swept out of both the House and Senate is a foregone conclusion, despite a strategy trying to downplay this fact by the party itself. The reality is, they were going to lose control of congress before the recent round of scandals and now it's likely to be a nearly clean and total sweep. The Dems are aware of this but downplay it because the idea of 'certain victory' will of course discourage the lazy from voting. Quite simply, there is no way the GOP can retain control of either house and they will not have enough of their own voters turning out to make another diebold stolen election anywhere near believable. Further, while the Dems are keeping quiet about it, it is no secret that a huge pile of subpoenas is probably even now being prepared along with articles of impeachment and a massive sheaf of indictments.

The conspiracy theorist in me wants to connect these dots and come up with a possible scenareo. Something along the lines of:

Jenna is down there putting the final parts of the 'deal' together with the Paraguayan president. The U.S. army is down there securing the ranch and bunker complex, probably due to be relieved after the move by Blackwater and Dyncorp mercenaries. As soon as things turn sour and it starts looking like prison is a real option the entire Bush Clan will hightail it for this sanctuary where they will live in disgrace but still free. Bush Sr. will, of course, have to go also, because in the ensuing investigation of W and his neocon criminal empire there is bound to be enough stones uncovered to make prison for him a certainty as well. In exile they will enjoy wetting their beaks in the global drug trade which they helped keep alive and will have the security of sitting on the world's largest fresh water source, which will become increasingly valuable as global warming and catastrophic climate change, reports of which have been suppressed by Bush until it was too late, turns the planet into a water-starved wasteland. Eventually the leverage power conferred by controlling the ever dwindling supply of water will allow the Bush Clan to once again ascend and redeploy their dynastic dreams after their short tenure in exile. A bump in the road, if you will. Any outrage Americans have will need to be diverted to those of the criminal cartel left behind and not lucky enough to warrant an invitation to the new Paraguayan Bush Refuge, because in it's weakened state due to pointless global conflict started by the current administration and the coming collapse of the dollar, the U.S. will be in no position to exert its now limited power over other countries, especially considering BushCo, even in exile will have the backing of nation states which have benefitted by the Bush Criminal Enterprise such as Israel, the UAE and Saudi Arabia as well as the megalithic military-industrial-security-oil-pharma corporate monster.

Then again, maybe it's just good business sense... though that begs the question, why would someone who professes disbelief in global warming and catastrophic climate change invest a veritable fortun in water?

For the record, and this speculation aside, my prime projection is still for a false flag trigger event followed by martial law and the suspension of congress as well as the constituion.

How do we know that Christians are delusional?

Found this amusing.

If you are a Christian, you are about to begin
a fascinating journey. In the next ten minutes
it will become clear to you that your belief in God is delusional.

The goal of this short video is to help you look in a mirror and understand the delusion of Christianity. Once you can see what is going on, the hope is that you will be able to start healing your delusion. With each healing, we make our world a better place.

Don't yell at me, I didn't make it or write that, I just thought it was amusing enough to share.

American Blackout - The Death of Democracy

American Blackout Trailer

I just saw this awesome new documentary which exposes the massive scale of election fraud going on in America today. It stars former Representative Cynthia Mckinney and tells her tale as well as that of the general story of vote rigging and the subversion of our democracy as a whole.

The story is a simple one really, both the 2000 and 2004 elections were stolen. This has been reported and veryfied before, however this documentary does a good job of collating the data and distilling it into an easily understood big-picture. I was already familiar with the ongoing Diebold fiasco, but this sheds light on some of the other less technical aspects of election fraud going on and those behind it. At one point I was rather disturbed to find that voting machines were removed on purpose, to increase lines and add frustration to those who were most likely to vote against the GOP, and not just here and there, it was systemic and wide reaching. Also, adding names to a 'felon' list by selection of race, people who had no criminal records at all, in order to keep them from voting was an eye opener. In essense, Bush was never elected president and the genocide he and his cronies are even today perpetuating worldwide in these unneeded conflicts should never have happened.

Cynthia Mckinney's story is both tragic and classic. She stood up for truth and what is right against evil power and brought down the wrath of that power. It's almost a David vs. Goliath tale, only this time Goliath won.

After standing up to Bush and his minions of evil, Rep. Mckinney was attacked relentlessly and brutally. First, through a strange loophole in election law, Republicans in her district crossed over and voted in a Democratic primary as Democrats to unseat her. How can this be legal? After that, and rather interesting in light of recent news, She was attacked on the issue of 9/11. The Republican politico war machine politicized the tragic events of that day and sicced their attack dogs on McKinney. Very noteworthy is the fact that the only thing McKinney did was pose the question 'Who knew what? and When?' and was ruthlessly savaged by the GOP and the press for asking that. As well all now know, thanks to Bob Woodwards book State of Denial: Bush at War, Part III, the administration DID INDEED HAVE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF A PENDING ATTACK BEFORE 9/11. So, where are these attackers now with their appologies to McKinney?

It's a pitty. We lost a patriot and hero when we lost Rep. Cynthia Mckinney. How many of those do we have left?

WAKE UP AMERICA! Your Right to Vote has been STOLEN. This is a freedom our forefathers fought, bled and DIED that we might enjoy it.

Prepare yourselves for what's coming, because the vote is the last redoubt, the final freedom. When the ballot box fails us, the only recourse left is the cartridge box.

This is a must-see documentary. Check out American Blackout.

Video: Operation Gladio BBC documentary

This is the BBC documentary about the false-flag terror operation code named Gladio. From the Wikipedia page on Operation Gladio:

Operation Gladio was a clandestine "stay-behind" operation sponsored by the CIA and NATO to counter communist influence after World War II in Italy, as well as in other European countries, which has been involved in various terrorist acts. While Gladio is usually used to refer to only the Italian "stay-behind", the term has also been applied to all other "stay-behind" operations. NATO stay-behind armies existed in all countries of Western Europe during the Cold War, including Turkey. Suspected at least since the 1984 revelations of Avanguardia Nazionale member Vincenzo Vinciguerra during his trial, Gladio’s existence was acknowledged by head of Italian government Giulio Andreotti on October 24, 1990, who spoke of a "structure of information, response and safeguard", with arms caches and reserve officers. Further investigations revealed links to neofascists, the mafia, Propaganda Due masonic lodge (aka P2), and the "strategia della tensione" followed in Italy during the 1970s–80s to block the electoral success of the Italian Communist Party (PCI).

Tempting Faith - What is the future of the GOP?

Is Obermann tempting fate with Tempting Faith?

Keith Olbermann is making a name for himself as an outspoken critic of Bush and his cohort of criminals. There has been some speculation about the reasons behind this. Perhaps he got the 'ok' from the powers that be and Bush is being tossed to the wolves. Perhaps he simply grew a backbone or just finally snapped. Some may say it's six years to late, but I'd say at least it's something. There is so little truth coming out of the mainstream media that any voice in a storm is a welcome one as far as I'm concerned. I wonder though, if he did not get the ok from above, if perhaps he's going to far by shedding light on the differences between the Neo Conservatives and the Christian Right. This hits the GOP with a double blow, where it really hurts; in the wallet and in the voting booth. It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out. Anyway, here are the videos.

Tempted by Faith Part 1

Tempted by Faith Part 2

The controversial book, Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction by David Kuo, former Deputy Director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, is due out this week and details the use and abuse of Evengelical Christians by some in the Bush administration, particularly Karl Rove.

This is certainly no news to me. I've long wondered about the dual nature of the Republican party. On one side you have the so called 'Neocons', who apparently are willing to do anything, including covering up pedophile activity among their own, as long as they get to continue feeding the war machine and shovelling the money of future generations into the pockets of the military-industrial-security-oil-pharma corporate hydra. On the other side, the 'Paleocons' who at one time stood for family values, small government and fiscal responsibility but have now been tainted by those who usurped their party.

It's strange, because the Neocons are small in number and it's no secret in Washington that they despise their Paleocon Christian 'cousins'. One would think that the real Conservatives would have woken up by now and either taken back their party or split off on their own. Perhaps it's only a lack of leadership that is keeping that from happening. Surely the people themselves are disgusted. Just the other day I was watching Washington Journal on C-Span and most of the Republicans who called in said they would not be voting at all in this election, out of disgust. There were also several callers who said they'd be voting Libertarian and even a couple who said they would vote Democrat.

I have to wonder how the Neocons plan to pull off their voter fraud this time without the boots on the ground to make a plausable case for some unbeknownst tsunami conservative of voter turnout.

I'd say this to those disillusioned and disenfranchised conservatives; is it not time to make a break, divest from what has become the 'party of death' and stand up for what you profess to believe in? In the modern era there has never been a riper time for a third party. The ball is in your court.

Video: Stephen Colbert bakes pies with feminists

Stephen Colbert bakes pies with feminists Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem. The women give as good as they get. I think I may see a chink in Stephen Colbert's armor finally.

This is a little off topic for this blog, but I found the skit hysterical. It's a rare thing that can make me laugh in the current state BushCo has put this world in. If we don't laugh from time to time, we might end up crying uncontrollably. Tip O' the hat to Colbert, Steinem and Fonda and thanks for the laugh.

Video: The Arab League - Death Star

Straight out of Hiphopistan. These guys are hysterical and this video is awesome. It's a must-see. Truth with comedy strikes a chord when there's so much bad going on in the world. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.

Video: 9/11 Conspiracy Southpark episode

This video, entitled "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce" is causing quite a stir in the 9/11 truth movement. I think I've seen as many posts tearing it down as ones giving it a thumbs up. Apparently the site 911truth.org got hit pretty hard with traffick, as one of the characters on the show was wearing a t-shirt with that written on it and was featured fairly prominently. I find it a bit odd that only five years after the crime that changed the world forever it is now acceptable to use as a punch-line, but it was bound to happen sooner or later. Watch it yourself and make your own deceision. For me, I'm still holding out and hoping some sort of real investigation might eventually happen.

VIideo: Olbermann on the death of Habeas Corpus

Keith Olbermann discusses the death of Habeas Corpus as spelled out in the Bush Torture Bill. He seems to be the only one in the mainstream standing up for the constitution. It's about time someone did. Where is the rest of the press?

William Kristol of PNAC gets 0wned by 9/11 Truth activists

William Kristol, chairman of the Project for a New American Century (founded in 1997) speaks at the University of Texas in Austin about the current political climate and the "new order" or "new world" that emerged after 9/11. He is confronted by a large number of protesters who carry banners and question his role in 9/11. Pg. 51 of the PNAC document "Rebuilding America's Defenses" (published in September 2000, which otherwise calls for the dramatic build up of military forces and for a climate of multi-theater wars) states: "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."

Confronters include Infowars staff members Kevin Smith and Aaron Dykes, as well as members of the U.T. student group "Project for a New American Citizen."

Through smirking and laughing at the challenging audience, Kristol admits that he at first thought 9/11 would be a forgettable "one-off," he admits that his father was a Communist after joking about voting communist accidentally and laughing at the question itself.

The function was hosted by the U.T. Dean of the LBJ School of Public Affairs, James B. Steinberg, who is a Bilderberg attendee (multiple times since 1994, including 2006). He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and has been a part of the Brookings Institution and an advisor in Bill Clinton's Presidential cabinet.

He is confronted by Aaron Dykes on his involvement with Bilderberg, as well as a paper he wrote entitled, "Preventive War: A Useful Tool" in which he suggests that we not let W. Bush's idea of a pre-emptive War ruin our concept of a 'preventive war.'

John Mark Karr taken to school in limo after being released - WTF?

WTF is going on in crazyworld? Apparently upon his release due to incompetence on the part of police and prosectutors, this obvious MKULTRA mind control victim and all around scary guy (not to mention Lee Harvey Oswald look-alike) was driven in a limo by ABC's "Good Morning America" producers to the school where this psycho previous worked. I say again, WTF? The world is tearing appart at the seams, there's no reason for these jerkoffs to start making stories hapen! Disgusting. The mainstream media ... the so called Fourth Estate makes me sick.

Jon Stewart on the 20M Iraq victory kegger

It's a nice thought but, like everything else the Bush administration has gotten it's hands on, Iraq is doomed to be a disaster. All told, at the end of it, it will make vietnam look like a day in the park. The death toll is already being underreported by more than five fold and the expense of it will crush our children's children's children. Thanks Bush.

video: Protesters attack Minuteman

With this Bush Administration comitting crimes against humanity and the constitution daily, I wonder if this is displaced anger. I also wonder why college groups have not protested before now. This country is going to hell in a handbasket and students have never been more placid in the history of the United States. Perhaps it's all part of the control mechanisms and the saftey valves.

JFK speaks out against Bush from beyond the grave

Just a short time before he was killed, JFK spoke out against exactly what is going on right now... and some people scoff at conspiracy theories.

Video: Olberman calls Bush out for being a filthy LIAR

Part 1

Part 2

Olberman certainly seems to be challenging the adminstration lately like a real newsman should. One might gripe that it's a little bit late, but you know what, he's still doing it and that alone deserves some kudos. We're living in a time of media oppression and he has thrown off the shackles to expose some truth so my hats off to him.

Video: Pat Buchanan on Foley the Flamer

Pat Buchanan being well... Pat Buchanan. This may be just a small indicator of the breakup of the GOP where you've got one side sticking to old school conservative values and the other side willing to do anything, including covering up pedophile activities, as long as they can continue feeding the war machines with their war mongering ways. Of course, both sides have a lot of 'wrong' in them, but at some point you have to ask yourself, which side, paleo-cons or neo-cons are causing the most harm to the most people?

Why Shoutwire is doomed

It's a simple concept really... you have users submit the content and also have users rate the content, thus all the top content is ensured to be well liked and in popular demand. All you have to do is sit back and thank God for such an opportunity to make something from nothing as the ultimate middleman. How did they screw that up?

I got into blogging a while ago, my work covers a wide variety of topics and my hobbies expand on that. I have several blogs and maintain quite a few web sites. Somewhere along the line, someome submitted one of my articles to Shoutwire and I started getting a lot of hits refered from there. I found the whole concept interesting and started submitting some articles myself... quite a few made the front page and generated a fair amount of hits. It was nothing extraordinary, but it seemed a good way to get news out that didn't usually reach people.

At one point, I noticed that some of my stories were disappearing off of shoutwire, which seemed strange because nearly ALL of the ones I submitted were getting a huge number of shouts. I chalked this up to stories simply being folded in at the time... soon I realized how wrong I was and that this was all due to censorship.

Looking back, it became quite apparent that the specific stories that were removed by the administrators of Shoutwire were done so for political reasons. Namely... any story critical of Israel, the Bush Regime or questioning the facts surrounding 9/11 were removed out of hand, completely ignoring the fact that these very stories were the ones generating the most 'Shouts'.

This fact was driven home when I submitted this
just before the five year aniversary of the 9/11 Attacks which forever changed our world. This post, once submitted started generating massive hits as well as massive Shouts. In mind boggling fashion, people were both viewing and Shouting this at the rate of hundreds and thousands per hour... for the few hours it lasted. That's right, only hours old and with tons of Shouts under its belt this post was sumarily dismissed by the Shoutwire administrators.

That of course is only one example, all through the Israel-Lebanon conflict I repeatedly submitted posts decrying the attrocities Israel was commiting upon Lebanon and they all were deleted in favor or pro-Israel news items which told nothing but lies.

Shoutwire of course has fought it's criticism, and made excuses for it's censorship, but not a single one of its arguments holds any water at all.

So, why will Shoutwire fail? Stupidity is the short answer. Look at the mainstream media for your example. American Idol out performs ALL NEWS STATIONS COMBINED and newspapers nationwide are scrambling to keep out of the red. Why is this? People KNOW when they are being played, they KNOW when they are being LIED to. It's not that they don't want news, it's that they want REAL NEWS. That's why more and more people are turning to the internet and the blogsphere for their news.

Somehow, Shoutwire started out as a good idea, promoting the free exchange of news and ended up as someone's personal political agenda. Why they thought they could get away with that while huge corporations in the mainstream are failing for just that same reason is beyond me.

With such a small market share, one has to be surprised they would take the censorship route, I mean they're competing with unrestricted services such as Digg, Reddit and now Netscape and Yahoo.

With an opportunity to stand out from the crowd as uncensored, unbiased, and completely user driven, why cave in the corporate elite? Alas, they did, and what it does is leave the gate open for a REAL news service to step in and take their place.

I waive goodbye to you shoutwire, from the moral highground.

Drive out the Bush Regime Oct 5 Protest

The World Can't Wait.

YOUR GOVERNMENT, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

YOUR GOVERNMENT is openly torturing people, and justifying it.

YOUR GOVERNMENT puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses the science that doesn't fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.

YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.

YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

People look at all this and think of Hitler - and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come.

We must act now; the future is in the balance.

Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge, and people sense this. There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing." People who steal elections and believe they're on a "mission from God" will not go without a fight. There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into "leaders" who tell us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, and actually serves to demobilize people.

But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn - or be forced - to accept. There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it. And there is a way. We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world. We need more than fighting Bush's outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history. Acting in this way, we join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.

This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, they will try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop. The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined.

The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.
