Triad:Vatican, Fascism, New World Order
September 24, 2009

Recently Obama went to Italy  to meet for the G-8 summit.  He also had a personal interview with the pope, and the pope presented him with a copy of  the  CARITAS IN VERITATE.  It has teeth.

 

1.  A Global Government.  The pope is calling for a “true world political authority” to fix the problems that plague the world.  (page 67) 

2.  Church and State.  The pope says this new political authority will make its decisions based on spiritual values.  (Chapter 5) 

3.  The Papacy at the Head.  These spiritual values cannot be derived from just any religion, since not “all religions are equal.”  (p 55)

4.  Religion, Politics, and the Economy.    The church must influence all areas of society since God must have “a place in the public realm, specifically in regard to its cultural, social, economic, and particularly its political dimensions.”  (56)

 5.  Power to Enforce Law.  This “political authority” must have “real teeth” and “be vested with the effective power” to enforce its laws around the world. (67)

6.  Control Buying and Selling.  The new world governing power will institute socialistic policies for government to redistribute wealth.  (chapter 3)

7.  Resurgence of Labor Unions.  Labor Unions are to be empowered to “play a decisive role” in the new world order.  (25)

8.  The Church’s Goal.  Pope  Benedict says that this encyclical is to help achieve “The goal of the history of the human family”–to build “the universal city of God.”  (7)

9.  Redefining Religious Liberty.  While claiming not “to interfere in any way in the politics of States,” the pope redefines “liberty” as happening when the world obeys laws shaped by the Roman Church’s spiritual values.  According to the pope, as the church influences states to enforce its view of “truth” on others, people are set “free.”  “This mission of truth is something that the Church can never renounce.”  (9) 

10.  Immortal Souls.  The non-biblical belief that man has an immortal soul helps to insure the pope’s global agenda.  “Man is …God’s creature, whom God chose to endow with an immortal soul.”  (29) 

“The pope’s views on the redistribution of wealth and his agenda set forth in Charity in Truth   echo many of the same themes that Obama campaigned for last year.  As a result, the White House was excited about the meeting as this insider describes:

    “The encyclical ramped up the level of White House enthusiasm for this meeting because you can’t read it without sensing that these two men are seeing economic questions the same way,” says a Catholic adviser to the White House….The Holy Father’s emphasis on putting the human person at the center of the economy strongly echoes themes that Obama campaigned on and is working to implement.  (Dan Gilgoff, Obama’s Most Important Catholic Adviser, U.S./ News & World Report, July 10, 2009).

     Never in the history of the United Nations has a U.S. President taken the chairmanship of the powerful UN Security Council. Perhaps it is because of what could arguably be a Constitutional prohibition against doing so. To wit: Section 9 of the Constitution says:  

    No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

The Truth About the Health Care Bills – Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney 08.24.09

 Well, I have done it!  I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled.

However, as scary as all of that it, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people and the businesses they own. The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with. I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of the Obama administration of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance or if you have private insurance that is not deemed ´acceptable to the ´Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a ´tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the ´due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much out the original ten in the Bill of Rights that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn?t stop there though. The 9th Amendment that provides: ´The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people; The 10th Amendment states: ´The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to ´be bound by oath or affirmation¡ to support the Constitution. If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat I suggest they consult the source. 

Here is a link to the Constitution:http://www.archives.gov/ex hibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html

And another to the Bill of Rights: http://www.archives.gov/ex hibits/charters/bill_of_ri ghts_transcript.html

There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

Qaddafi UN Speech: confirms COTO tenets

Qaddafi UN Speech: confirms COTO tenets

Ethiopia Ghadaffi

Muammar Qaddafi delivered an unrehearsed speech at the UN today.  Though long winded and without a full room, he delivered some very serious charges.  With the NWO security council members likely absent, he made several points and unlike the NWO, teleprompted bloat provided by others, he worked off the cuff from his notes and pages in a file.

Qaddafi rendered much criticism and blame on the United Nations.  He  blasted the UN Charter, it’s veto privilege and the power of the security council who Obama will set precedence by chairing.

Since Gaddafi was elected head of the African Union in February this year he has been very vocal of the NWO and their part in the Sudan genocide [Darfur] the need to abolish Switzerland as it “is a world mafia and not a state”, and redistribute boundary lines to Italy, France and Germany.

In his speech which lasted over an hour and a half, he rendered his views on other issues. He called the Swine Flu a military tool for world domination. He also called for the UN to investigate the JFK investigation. He speculates that Jack Ruby was an Israeli operative.

He blamed UN leaders, the League of Nations for the Holocaust and reminded the assembly that they gave refuge to the Jews and that the Jews needed Arabs.  He protested the Palestinian murders by the Israeli government and delved into other conspiracies that many around the world would agree.

The immediate MSM response has been the usual disregard of the points he made but the same rhetoric over the Lockerbie bombing who Qaddafi was never formally charged and the battle against Magog  H. W. Bush.

The protesters are not coming out to explain how many innocent people have been killed by weapons ordered by Bush, Clinton, Blair, Brown, and every other leader in the world.

Qaddafi specifically called out the superpowers of the UN today SC proclaiming, “Nobody cares about the Security Council.” ……..”this place was founded by terrorists.”

Security council is a NWO COMMITTEE run much as the Mafia. The current membership is as follows:

Permanent Members

China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States

Guest members

Austria (2010) Japan (2010) Uganda (2010)
Burkina Faso (2009) Libyan Arab Jamahiriya (2009) Viet Nam (2009)
Costa Rica (2009) Mexico (2010)  
Croatia (2009) Turkey (2010)  

Other than Libya and Costa Rica possibly, hows this list of NWO conflict hotspots with the COMMITTEE’s historical fingerprints on it.

Later today Ahmadinejad will speak to the assembly.  I hope he will confirm the holocaust this time but reinforce it as a NWO agenda to create the state of Israel and further the COMMITTEE’s agenda for world financial domination and the continued enslavement and death of sovereign countries and their peoples.

National Security Inspectors General Release Critique of Warrantless Surveillance Program
July 12, 2009

0_61_bush_gesturing_120407-copy

I never get tired of revisiting the hijacking of the 4th amendment by Bush, Cheney,  Gonzales and the rest of the outlaws.

It’s not surprising that  Addington, Yoo, Tenet  and Bybee declined information and inteviews fo the report.  Anyway it’s a slam dunk confirmation of the slimey reptiles slithering into the hospital room of an Attorney General who would not sign off on treason. But that never stopped the  serpents from a sneak attack on a man with a debilitating illness.  Great bathroom reading here.

National Security Inspectors General Release Critique of Warrantless Surveillance Program

http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20090710/index.htm

For more information contact:
Meredith Fuchs202/994-7000

Washington, DC, July 10, 2009Today’s release of a report by several agency inspectors general reinforces the National Security Archive’s argument in our Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that the Justice Department should declassify and release the legal justifications for the surveillance program authorized by President Bush after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. 

The new reportfrom the inspectors general of the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence, criticizes the OLC memoranda that were used to justify warrantless surveillance of US citizens, several of which remain secret and are subject to the Archive’s lawsuit. The IGs state that there were “deficiencies” in the OLC memos, drafted by Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo, and that the memos “raise[d] serious concerns” at DOJ because they omitted analysis of key cases and legal provisions and were not subject to the ordinary “rigorous peer review process.”

According to Archive General Counsel Meredith Fuchs, “The IG report shows why it is important to release the underlying legal opinions to the public so we don’t make the same mistakes again.”

The National Security Archive, along with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), filed a FOIA lawsuit in 2006 seeking records related to the warrantless surveillance program, including relevant OLC legal opinions. In November 2008, 10 of those opinions were submitted to District Judge Henry Kennedy for in camera review after the court held that the government had not sufficiently justified withholding the opinions in their entirety.  The case is pending Judge Kennedy’s review.

Saddam Hussein Talks to the FBI
July 2, 2009

Interesting reading COTOCREW!

Twenty Interviews and Five Conversations with “High Value Detainee # 1” in 2004

Washington, D.C., July 1, 2009 – FBI special agents carried out 20 formal interviews and at least 5 “casual conversations” with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein after his capture by U.S. troops in December 2003, according to secret FBI reports released as the result of Freedom of Information Act requests by the National Security Archive and posted today on the Web at www.nsarchive.org.

 
 

 saddam2

Saddam denied any connections to the “zealot” Osama bin Laden, cited North Korea as his most likely ally in a crunch, and shared President George W. Bush’s hostility towards the “fanatic” Iranian mullahs, according to the FBI records of conversations from February through June 2004 between Saddam and Arabic-speaking agents in his detention cell at Baghdad International Airport.

The former Iraqi leader, when asked about his accomplishments, listed social progress for the people of Iraq, a temporary truce with the Kurds in the early 1970s, the nationalization of Iraq’s oil in 1972, support for the Arab side during the 1973 Middle East war with Israel, and after that, for the remaining 30 years of his rule, simple survival – through a devastating eight year war with Iran that he had launched, and a 12-year sanctions regime imposed on his people after another war that he began.  During the interviews he repeatedly contests FBI evidence and the neutrality of his interlocutors – which one of them finds ironic, given the record of peremptory Iraqi justice under Saddam’s governance.  He selectively outlines recent Iraqi history and acknowledges some mistakes, including the destruction without U.N. supervision or verification of some of Iraq’s WMD arsenal left over from the 1980s.

During the interviews Saddam refutes some examples of what he views as myths, like his purported use of body doubles.  Instead he says that to evade his enemies he never used the telephone and traveled constantly from one dwelling to another (he describes the farm where he was captured in a “spider hole” as the same place where he took refuge after a failed 1959 coup attempt.)

He takes personal responsibility for ordering the launching of SCUD missiles against Israeli targets during the 1991 Persian Gulf War, because he blamed Israel and its influence in the U.S. for “all the problems of the Arabs”, but denies that his purpose was to draw that country into the conflict and to divide Washington from its Arab allies.  He provides details on the lead-up to the war, reporting that during a January 1991 meeting former Secretary of State James Baker told Saddam’s foreign minister that if Iraq did not comply with U.S. conditions “we’ll take you back to the pre-industrial stage.”

Saddam’s historical recollections include his ascendancy within the Ba’athist party in 1968 and 1969; his disappointment after the Iran-Iraq war with Arab governments for their lack of gratitude for Iraq’s “saving all of the Arab world” from occupation by Iran; details about the 1991 Persian Gulf war; and the post-war Shi’a uprising in Iraq’s south, which he characterizes as “treachery” instigated by Iran.

Not included in these FBI reports are issues of particular interest to students of Iraq’s complicated relationship with the U.S. – the reported role of the CIA in facilitating the Ba’ath party’s rise to power, the uneasy alliance forged between Iraq and the U.S. during the Iran-Iraq war, and the precise nature of U.S. views regarding Iraq’s chemical weapons policy during that conflict, given its contemporaneous knowledge of their repeated use against Iranians and the Kurds.

This series of interviews also does not address chemical warfare in Kurdish areas of Iraq in 1987-1988, although an FBI progress report says Saddam was questioned on the topic.  One interview, #20, is redacted in its entirety on national security grounds, although it is not clear what issues agents could have discussed with Saddam that cannot now be disclosed to the public.

The interviews and conversations were led by George L. Piro, one of an exceedingly small number of FBI agents who spoke Arabic.  The agency expected that Saddam would feel rapport with Piro and develop a sense of dependency.  During the interviews Piro hears Saddam out but is often openly skeptical of the former leader’s recollections.  The agent does, however, assert with confidence that the U.S. side had information that Iraq was maintaining or developing a WMD capability and cites “evidence” of continuing contact between Iran and al-Qaeda, seemingly implying an operational relationship.

Public Enemy #1 – The FED
April 26, 2009

What happens when you try to mess with the IBC ? (International Banking Cartel)  Ask Ron Paul .

cessnadive-copy

Not since the assassination of Congressman Larry McDonald–when the International Banking Cartel decided to murder the 290 passengers aboard KAL flight 007 over Soviet airspace and the coverup after as to the reason why–has the issue not escaped Americans.

Just as former Senator John Tower and his daughter were among 23 persons murdered on April 5, 1991 when the twin-engine commuter plane they were aboard crashed while trying to land at an airport in Brunswick, GA–and the death of Senator John Heinz and six other people were killed on the previous day of April 4, 1991.

Heinz’s death occurred when a Bell 412 helicopter collided with the Senator’s Piper Aerostar plane over Merion Elementary School in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania. All aboard the two aircraft and two first-grade girls playing outside the school were killed. The helicopter had been dispatched to check out a problem with the landing gear of Heinz’s plane. While moving in for a closer look, the helicopter’s rotor blades struck the bottom of the plane, causing both aircraft to lose control and crash.

These two Senators, who had seats on the Senate banking and Finance Committees, were involved with the Council on Foreign Relations. Their deaths coincide with the efforts of McDonald and during June, 1989, the battle, waged at the state level, had once again reached Congress.

Representative Henry Gonzalez of Texas, introduced House Resolution 1469, calling for the abolition of the Open Market Committee of the Federal Reserve System. He also introduced House Resolution 1470, calling for the repeal of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. During the same session, Representative Phil Crane of Illinois, introduced H.R. 70, calling for an annual audit of the Federal Reserve, none of which ever made it to daylight.

Along with the death of Charles Lindbergh’s son, the poisoning of Louis McFadden, JKF and RFK and several other IBC assassinations, efforts to get to the heart of the Fed and it’s total corruption have been met with resistance.

Today, we can without hesitation make a stand to force our pathetic legislators to sponsor H. Res 1207 and get the accountability and action we have been denied for too many years. Ron Paul’s legislation HR 1207, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, is gaining support. HR 1207 has 91 co-sponsors and real potential to pass – BUT only if we educate and rally the people to support it and get our Congresspeople to put it to vote and pass it.

click here and type in your zip code to see if your Congressman is a supporter. Please send this as fax or email. ______________________________________

Representative [Enter your Representative],

Now that over $12 trillion have been pledged towards our financial crisis, more people than ever are concerned about where their money is going, and if it’s accomplishing anything. But in the face of an ever-worsening recession, the Federal Reserve refuses to furnish Congress and the American people with records of how the Bank is allotting and spending trillions of bailout dollars.

Shrouded in secrecy, the Federal Reserve is a danger to our political process:

No one knows where our money is going or what it is doing, and Chairman Bernanke has said that efforts to disclose such information are “counterproductive.” But that’s my money they’re using, $12 trillion! And without any record of how the Federal Reserve is managing and distributing these trillions of taxpayer dollars, there is no way to know if our present course is sustainable or not.

We must know what is happening with our money, and the Federal Reserve must come clean with the American people. Please co-sponsor HR 1207, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, and do everything in your power to see this bill through to a passing vote.

The Dunne Briefs – US Government NOC list
April 20, 2009

Bruce E. Ivins – was a microbiologist and vaccinologist at the USAMRIID who supposedly committed suicide on July 27th 2008 rather than face criminal indictment, trial and possible execution for the Amerithrax investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  After what is reported to be an exhaustive investigation, the source of the high-grade anthrax was traced back to a Pentagon lab, which implicated Ivins as the prime suspect in 2006.  This six year investigation involved supposedly hundreds of suspect investigations. Why was there such a rush finally to resolve this case before George Bush left office? Might the resolution be needed to avoid a new administration and Attorney General to look into the faulty evidence and conclusions or assuming the investigation under new leadership? Even FBI director Mueller identified the investigation as “embarrassing” and “poorly handled.”

 

On July 27th 2008, Ivins was found unconscious at his home. He was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital in Maryland where he died two days later from what was reported to be an overdose of Tylenol, Valium and/or Codeine. Based on blood test results of samples taken from the body, the state medical examiner had determined that an autopsy wouldn’t be necessary due to the medical evaluation and diagnosis done at the hospital. Ivins died July 29, 2008 when he was taken off life support after the family had decided not to continue medical care and having him put on the organ donor recipient list .

 

The final report indicated it was Tylenol [PM] and the cause of death was due to liver failure from the toxic levels of Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine hydrochloride. The Frederick News-Post reported on the information provided by the police report that Ivins was briefly conscious for some time in the hospital and had apparently nodded to the question of his intent to commit suicide though it does not indicate who was present for this supposed admission.

 

It is also reported that Ivins vital signs were improving and this had prompted Ivins to become agitated forcing the medical staff to administer additional narcotics described in the article as a surgical anesthetic. The article does not give any additional information regarding his condition from that point, yet it does indicate the decision to pull him off life support.

 

How odd?  Was this patient brain dead or was it life support for liver failure? Would life support and a liver transplant have saved this mans life? I believe from my previous medical research and reading of other such cases as well as a personal dealing with a friends attempted suicide by drug overdose, that the decision to pull life support would not be considered without

the criteria being met by Federal and State laws as well as by the attending physician.

 

FBI and DOJ officials formally announced that the Government had concluded that Ivins was likely to have been solely responsible for “the deaths of five persons, and the injury of dozens of others, resulting from the mailings of several anonymous letters to members of Congress and members of the media in September and October, 2001, which were deemed to contain anthrax.

Amerithrax Hoax – by Barry Kissen [OPN Article]

Bloomberg.com

 

Bloomberg reported that according to Maryland state court documents, Ivins had recently been committed temporarily to a mental hospital outside Baltimore, and a judge ordered him to stay away from a woman who accused him of threatening to kill her.

 

The Washington Post reported the following regarding the defendant .

 

The counselor he saw for group therapy and biweekly individual sessions, who would eventually tell a judge that he was a “sociopathic, homicidal killer,” had a troubled past. Jean C. Duley, who worked until recent days for Comprehensive Counseling Associates in Frederick, is licensed as an entry-level drug counselor and was, according to one of her mentors, allowed to work with clients only under supervision of a more-seasoned professional. Shortly before she sought a “peace order” against Ivins, Duley had completed 90 days of home detention after a drunken-driving arrest in December, and she has acknowledged drug use in her past. In a 1999 interview with The Washington Post, Duley described her background as a motorcycle gang member and a drug user. “Heroin. Cocaine. PCP,” said Duley, who then used the name Jean Wittman. “You name it, I did it.”

It’s interesting that this woman’s testimony would be so readily used to describe a man that was given the Decoration for Exceptional Civilian Service which is the highest award given to Defense Department civilian employees for his part in the manufacture of the anthrax vaccine.

It is also interesting that any depression or anxiety issues he was dealing with might be the result of what he perceived as being the “fall guy” in the case along with the information that the DOJ would seek the death penalty for the perpetrators. If Ivins had psychological issues, the gangstalking, FISA type investigations provided by FBI could well have exacerbated the condition of his mental well being.

We know the technical evidence was flimsy as to where the weapons grade anthrax could have come from, who had access to it and who had the means to develop it. Along with the lab Fort Detrick, MD, information indicates two other defense facilities in Utah and Ohio. It is also unclear as to the bentonite? Was it there or not? First it was, then it wasn’t. This was critical to the linking of Saddam Hussein and the attacks. It also plays a significant role as to the tracking of Ivins and his late night hours and unreported cleanup episodes.

Had he uncovered a leak and plot inside the USAMRIID?  Was it from there these sources to media outlets regarding bentonite fabricated? Was the contamination meant to indict him? We know that the MSM who received the false claims regarding bentonite have never revealed the source of this information.

The matter regarding one time suspect, Dr. Steven J. Hatfill and his opposition to the BTWC and his efforts to sue every publication that reported the libelous information leaked to the media. John Ashcroft appeared to be the patsy here and subsequently could have contributed to his health and departure for the highly anticipated Alberto Gonzales.

Whether the 5.8 million dollar settlement was a payoff to Hatfill or an honest payment for the witchhunt, one thing is clear. The investigation was going nowhere until they had decided on Ivins. What was the urgency since this investigation was in progress for over six years?

Interesting that there are cases of murder involving Diphenhydramine hydrochloride with the most recent being the case of  US Army Captain Christopher Gray  who is charged with killing his wife. Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine hydrochloride can be administered in lethal dose intravenously as well.

Considering that an autopsy was not done in this highly public and extremely serious investigation is ludicrous. Autopsies are ordered for homeless deaths that could involve suspicious crime scene evidence. There’s no telling what other means could have been used, but there are other things to consider. The investigation revealed Ivins had purchased the Tylenol that may have been responsible for his overdose, but there was no evidence or information regarding it being found in his stomach. Would there have been traces of gelcaps or tablets in his stomach? Nor was there evidence of the bottles and drugs in his home.

On August 6, 2008, US Attorney Jeffrey A. Taylor officially made a statement that Ivins was the “only person responsible” in the 2001 anthrax attacks. Ivins, attorney Paul Kemp stated that the discovery and evidence was not convincing and Ivins passed a polygraph regarding his involvement. His colleagues have argued that the technology was not available to Ivins to produce the sophisticated grade of Anthrax used in the attacks. Taylor said in his press conference stated that the “we regret that we will not have the opportunity to present the evidence to a jury to determine whether the evidence establishes Dr. Ivins guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”

If we were able to have the investigation tried by commission would we get the same results we got with Warren and 911? Might we find that the evidence was not convincing or so circumstantial, that they just presented this front in an effort to ratchet up Ivins in a mental state that would innevitably cause his demise?

Here are some interesting facts regarding US Attorney Jeffrey A. Taylor.

* Jeffrey Taylor served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California from 1995–1999

* From 1999 to 2002, Mr. Taylor served as majority counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee where he advised Chairman Orrin Hatch and drafted provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act.

* Before his appointment as U.S. Attorney, Mr. Taylor served as Counselor to Attorneys General John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales from 2002 to 2006. Attorney General John Ashcroft has appointed Jeff Taylor to be Counsel to the Attorney General for criminal and national security matters. Taylor replaces Dan Levin who is serving as the Chief of Staff for FBI Director Robert Mueller.

* He was appointed interim U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia by Alberto Gonzales on September 22, 2006 and was sworn in seven days later.  

* Interim U.S. attorneys do not need to be confirmed by the Senate as a result of an amendment to the law governing interim attorneys included in the USA Patriot Reauthorization Act of 2005. He was the first interim Attorney to be placed under the new rules of the Patriot Act.

* On March 20, 2007, President Bush declared in a press conference that White House staff would not testify under oath on the matter if subpoenaed by Congress. One who ignores a Congressional subpoena can be held in contempt of Congress, but the D.C. U.S. Attorney must convene a grand jury to start the prosecution of this crime. Under 2 U.S.C. § 194, once either the House or the Senate issues a citation for contempt of Congress, it is referred to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, “whose duty it shall be to bring the matter before the grand jury for its action. No such action was taken.

How could this not be seen as a critical placement in light of the questions American have regarding the series of events that have unfolded since the attacks on the WTC and the subsequent inconsistencies regarding intelligence, investigations and accusations?

Of all the letters sent in the attack, here are the list of dead;

1.      Robert Stevens, 63, a photo editor at The Sun

2.      Thomas Morris, Jr. postal workers in Washington, DC

3.      Joseph Curseen, postal workers in Washington, DC

4.      Kathy Nguyen, a New York City hospital worker from the Bronx

5.      Ottilie Lundgren of Oxford, CT , a 94 year old retired widow

Here are the some of the survivors;

6.      Tom Brokaw

7.      Dan Rather

8.      Patrick Leahy

9.      Tom Daschle

How fortunate that the Media figures and electorate managed to escape without incident. Not even exposure. What is really interesting is that at a time when George Bush and Dick Cheney were on the CIA for intelligence regarding Saddam Hussein and WMD, with Cheney even making unannounced visits to Langley these attacks occurred.

The public opinion might have been affected with the reports of the attempts to murder the people America had invited into their homes every evening such as Rather and Brokaw.

And for the left anti-Bush folks, two of the top power Democrats might have fallen victim. You couldn’t get better PR for Saddams head on a platter. Sending a letter to the Sun and Enquirer was going to get the message in the hands of the guns and religion crowd, certainly. Sounds like a “Karl Rove” type list to me.

Either way, if Ivins was guilty of participating in the involvement and realized he was a marked man it appears to me that we should try the case in absentia with a clear investigation of the data under a peer review and to delve into the sorted details of Amerithrax, as we should for 911, the US attorney firings and torture. The case will be closed upon the completion of the investigation. But the questions regarding the technical and circumstantial evidence still remain a mystery.

There is enough unanswered questions to prompt Senator Grassley to conclude that it needs committee attention. All we have now is a dead man named Bruce Ivins and a wife who says he was innocent.

Further articles are forthcoming looking at the Bush-Cheney “NOC list’ and the trail of the dead by these operatives that have stolen our government and broken our laws.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Combat Without Cognizance – or Murder by Joystick?
April 5, 2009

drone_418733a-copy

I have spent no more time on any other cause in my life than I have protesting and vocalizing my opposition to government sponsored death. Be it the death penalty or military engagement, I have never wavered in this
position and that includes Roe v Wade and the ongoing abortion issue. I do not advocate state sponsored death. Therefore I want government out of the issue as well.

I accept and defend the rights of others to disagree. If your notion of capitalism and free markets in today’s environment doesn’t give you pause to consider the effects on our military engagement policies into international territories I suggest you consider it through some investigation.  Some might argue that our military has become nothing more that a collection of Private Defense Agencies [PDA] positioned globally to protect the interests of an Anarcho-Corporatist consortium of private businesses. I tend to agree with that assessment.

In lieu of the limited infomation or biased reporting we must find a position on such matters. Taking your position without the facts or truth is mere philosophical opining and detrimental in the ultimate goal of progress? Well progress itself is defined as;

Miriam Webster

1 a (1): a royal journey marked by pomp and pageant (2): a state procession b: a tour or circuit made by an official (as a judge) c: an expedition, journey, or march through a region
2: a forward or onward movement (as to an objective or to a goal) : advance
3: gradual betterment ; especially : the progressive development of humankind

whereas;

Dictionary.com – 2. a developmental activity in science, technology, etc., esp. with reference to the commercial opportunities created thereby or to the promotion of the material well-being of the public through the goods, techniques, or facilities created.

What? From where did that definition come from? For the sake of this opinion I choose to use it. So please, establish your position in regards to military engagement and the Rules that govern it. Combat is waged by State Military as well as CIA, Mossad, MI6 Intelligence, Blackwater [Xe] type state sponsored and independent mercenary and terrorist organizations which might at some point be called “freedom fighters” or extremists. The designations seem to vary depending on your interpretations. I accept the rules of engagement as defined from what I can find currently.

Air Force Pamphlet 110-31, International Law [AFP 110-31], p. 5-9. These requirements restate almost verbatim the provisions in Protocol I, Article 57.—The Conduct of Armed Conflict and Air Operations, instructs that, applying international legal limits to air attacks, planners must take the following precautions:

(a) Do everything feasible to verify that the objectives attacked are neither civilians nor civilian objects…
(b) Take all feasible precautions in the choice of means and methods of attack with a view to avoiding, and in any event to
minimizing, incidental loss of civilian life, injury to civilians, and damage to civilian objects; and
(c) Refrain from deciding to launch any attack which may be expected to cause incidental loss of civilian life, injury to civilians, damage to civilian objects, or a combination thereof, which would be excessive in relation to the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated.

So what about Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles? What are the concerns regarding the logistics, legalities and ethics?

Some of the logistic and legal concerns are price. The UAV cost to the Defense budget is considerably less than traditional F series fighter aircraft and range and fuel costs are nearly 90% less but do not require a trained pilot to operate. This is a considerable plus for the global military combines and their financial resources as well as taxpayers, though it potentially puts another pilot out of work.

There are issues regarding FAA and NORAD operations and traffic control related to available airspace and concerns over the the UAV ability to react or respond without human visual capabilities.

The US military’s increasing use UCAV (armed) development, requires the US aviation community to rewrite the rules regarding UAVs and to draft and publish rules and regulations governing the use of UCAVs in national airspace as well as the International Civil Aviation Organization and public concerns.

As with any technology relying on human operation and like aircraft, UCAVs can experience engine problems, loss of communication, and weapon malfunctions. Unlike manned aircraft, UCAVs must be programmed with precise instructions and procedures to follow. These instructions and procedures may include a preplanned orbit point to regain communications and control, a preplanned self-destruct point, or an autonomous recovery-and-landing option. The potential for loss of life increases significantly in the case of armed, pilot-less aircraft.

Since these are chip programmable and involve wireless communications, the enemy could hack into the system and sieze control over or sabbotage the mission.

The United States must consider the rules that govern flight operations in national and international airspace, the Laws of Armed Conflict (LOAC), and rules of engagement (ROE) when the use of UCAV to execute combat-attack operations. I have not been able to find the specific laws or rules in respect to UCAV’s and their use in combat but I have considered these issues.

Under the LOAC, if the controller pilot of the UCAV is in Langley, VA and the programmer is in San Jose, CA while the operation or intelligence base is in Kabul the enemy under the same rules would be able to launch an attack a counter strike in Virginia, California as well as Kabul. I’m sure that would be of deep concern to the local residents.

Recently we have come to the knowledge of the US CIA UAV attacks in Pakistan. President Obama can take responsibility for the half dozen attacks and the eighty or so deaths from UCAV missions in the Kurram region of Fata. Though sources say it was successful in taking out the targets, the nearby school was leveled as well and it is uncertain to the number of innocent casualties or injuries. These strikes are carried out by Predator unmanned aircraft and use the hellfire rockets as their weapon of choice.

Similarly, the Israeli attacks with UCAW’s has confirmed massive civilian damage and raises the concerns of the ability to direct investigation as to the reasons. With drone air attacks it brings the question of human, mechanical or intelligence errors.

Please refer to the UK. Guardian Report

Haaretz has reported the possible war crimes and violations during it’s Israel Defense Forces “Operation Cast Lead”

Article one

Article two

In this case the soldiers had direct contact with the targets that ended up being partly women and children included in the casualties. The testimonies and investigations into the possible criminality are in progress.

What needs to be said here is war and conflict regardless of means is tragic, heartbreaking and often criminal. There is a distinction to made between the technique of Operation Cast Lead and the use of Drones. If we must as a species continue to kill each other for any reason under the Military, LOAC and RoE, I think we should continue to operate with face to face annihilation of our supposed enemies. The use of UCAV’s may seem to some as a means to prevent the death of ones forces or manpower, but it leaves the personal intercourse, witnesses, testimonies, human reaction that may avoid a deadly encounter and most important accountability.

Who bears the responsibility for an autonomous attack when things go wrong? Can a computer determine proportional response? Can the computer mimick humanity? Can this technology weigh casualties against advantage anticipated? Can an autonomous system differentiate between unnecessary suffering or injury? Sanitizing and dehumanizing these factors will open the doors to what I believe will be unspeakable disregard for humanity and the necessary processes of distinction.

I apologize to the families who have lost love ones but I stand fast on this point. If you enlist to fight for your country, you enlist to kill for your country and you risk dying for your country as well. How you deal with these in your time of service are what will progress our hopeful enlightenment to an end to war and armed conflict and an avoidance of assured mutual destruction.

It is foolish for the public to be aghast at the tragedies such as Israel’s possible crimes or the matter of Lt. Calley in the Mei Lei massacre in Vietnam. It is the harsh realities and bitter pills that we must swallow until we address the real issues of leadership, our military agendas, the industrial military corporations and the men who wear the star clad shoulder bars and ribbons, for they are the ones who back and support the technology of killing without faces, without feeling and without accountability. This is another slippery slope that if we do not consider the inevitable desensitizing effect of this kind of combat and the long war mentality, then powers behind the creations of these conflicts will be happy to run drone and joystick wars in the backrooms of their stores for years to come while ringing their cash registers.

“Sometimes I think it should be a rule of war that you have to see somebody up close and get to know him before you can shoot him.” ~M*A*S*H, Col. Harry Potter

This statement is not particularly clever or brilliant but it has so much in it for one who understands how war works.

OBAMA’S FORK HAS ARRIVED
April 2, 2009

obamas-fork

Well, as we end the first quarter of 2009 and take a look at what has happened since we waved goodbye to George W. Bush. Let’s start today and work our way back.

Today Obama decided he could fire GM CEO, Rick Wagoner. Without notification to Congress, the president requested he step down. Step down or no more bailout money, I presume. Wagoner will survive with a twenty plus million dollar separation package.

Please take note of the fascist socialist type move from government to business and wonder why he hasn’t showed this kind of fervor and charge with Wallstreet.  Because as I reported in January, he is Wallstreet’s and Banksters candidate.

Obama has ordered a total of 21,000 more troops into Afghanistan that will provide nothing but further conflict civilian casualty and hardening of Islamic hatred for western [US] policy and will surely be increased over the next year. I predict one hundred thousand plus will be there by years end and they will quietly move to the Pakistani border for what will prove to be an extremely bad policy movement.

Seymour Hersh has written about the secret JSOC set up by Dick Cheney to allow it is as a special wing of our special operations community. They do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days, they reported directly to the Cheney office. They did not report to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff or to Robert Gates, the Secretary of Defense. They reported directly to him. Hersch stated “Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on.” This will continue without hitch by Gates and Obama which proved why he spouted working across the isle in his campaigning. Very transparent to the Coalition Of  The Obvious.

Obama has made use of this covert type bombing with drones in Pakistan These unmanned CIA aircraft controlled from operation rooms inside the US. This further points out my claim that Pakistan is the point. As many credible journalists and experts have testified, al-Qaeda is nothing in Afghanistan and never was. Osama was delivered there to stage the invasion by Clinton-Cheney-Bush to justify the entrance into the nation. 

Afghanistan has been fighting a civil war for twenty years and are not terrorists but religious and social extremists. The Taliban represents the Pashtun power fighting against several minority sects. Once again we have been saddled with an International  Military Combine and Corporate puppet to do the bidding of the EU, Israel and the Financial Combine.  As Bush perpetrated the same kind of genocidal policies in Iraq, we suffered five plus years of civil war casualties on troops and over a million civilian casualties which likely were substantially innocent men, women and children.

It appears that Syria wants to get involved with a US, Iranian meeting to approach the Afghanistan issue without the military necessity for insurgence.  What appears to be the general consensus there is the same. The Taliban are free from any al-Qaeda influence and they are fighting for social and religious rule.  It is common knowledge and admitted that the Taliban rejects al-Qaeda.

The conflict is a small portion of the Taliban who are being mistreated, attacked and provoked by the Transitional Administration of Karzai or the covert drug smugglers and CIA operative who are there to stir the pot to keep the conflict heated.

 “If the Afghanistan government falls to the Taliban or allows al-Qaida to go unchallenged,” Obama said, “that country will again be a base for terrorists.”  He called the situation in the region “increasingly perilous” more than seven years after the Taliban was removed from power in Afghanistan which clearly makes him the King’s pawn or completely incompetent. I chose the pawn. This was the mandated order for Obama to select Robert Gates, the possible largest active war criminal still operating in Washington. 

Obama is going to the G20 Summit in it’s wake the demonstrations are already becoming unruly as they did here in the US when the WTO was in town. The sentiments are consistent from the general population to Angela Merkel, Germany’s Chancellor who led the assault on the prime minister’s “global newdeal” for a $2 trillion-plus fiscal stimulus to end the recession and delivered the same to Obamas spending plans as a possible bankruptcy for US and EU.  Spanish finance minister, Pedro Solbes and Frances Sarkozy have doubts as well. Timothy Geithners a key player in the largest redistribution of wealth ponzi scheme against Americans and Europeans in history. Along with Greenspan, Paulson and Bernake and Chris Dodd it connects the Combine from the Royal Elite Bank to the Fed to White House and Congress.

We have seen a rookie spending spree orchestrated by Wallstreet and the City of London who control the entire financial system globally. Brown and Obama merely pawns for the Crown. Their greed got out of hand and it’s time for a redistribution to reinvigorate their coffers. They have decided to put it on our tab. They will print it, distribute it and we will take on the debt and enormous interest on what is essentially worthless fiat linen.

President Obama has stacked his cabinet with Hillary Clinton, AIPAC and China specialist who along with her philandering spouse were groomed for China detail. WTO and the critical PR required to rope us into this relationship that has destroyed American Industry by a country so void of human rights it makes Afghanistan look like Japan.

Thomas J Vilsack has spent more than half his life working for Corporatist food industry and supported eminent domain legislation. He was hand picked as well by the Combine to run for President as were others such as McCain, Clinton, Obama, Romney,  and Edwards. Vilsack was considered by the Combine as the chosen VP for Kerrys run in 2004. Vilsacks politics and connections with Combine Corporation such as Monsanto have identified him as the Agriculture insider for the Combines efforts to control farming and food production. Controlling the money as stated by Rothschild does not stop the growers from surviving the One World planned initiative.

Eric Holder brings so much bad bagage to the table it’s hard to summarize. Holder assured Chris Bond privately that Mr. Obama’s Justice Department will not prosecute former Bush officials involved in the interrogations program in order to get his nomination through.

In the wake of 1999’s MK Ultra CIA shooting massacre in Columbine, Colo., Holder told CBS that the court system ought to look at regulating Internet speech, since the two boys who executed the massacre learned how to build bombs online. A first Amendment issue certainly.

The Waco debacle, when a federal prosecutor who raised questions about a possible  Justice Department cover-up in the Waco standoff was abruptly removed from the case along with his boss, according to a court filing made public. Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder recused U.S. Attorney James W. Blaggin San Antonio and assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Johnston in Waco, Texas, from any further dealings in criminal or civil proceedings related to the siege.

Eric Holder was pivotal in the Clinton pardon of Marc Rich,  the commodities trader who fled the country in 1983 to escape prosecution for tax evasion, racketeering, and trading with the enemy.

This will be the most corrupt administration in American History and if we survive, it will finally link Democrats and Republican collusion conspiracy to the Combine 40 who run the world.

If Obama has decided on the “keeping your enemies closer” philosophy, then he has surely accomplished that part.  Obama has hit the fork in the road and he either delivers justice, his promises, his oath of office or follows his orders. It’s a Kennedy left or a right to hell.

Our New Vietnam
March 13, 2009

sst

Afghanistan, another victim of U.S. Freedom Marketing by the club we have come to know oh so well.::::::::

Make no mistake GW Bush did his job. Of course his job was only to secure US firmly into Iraq. Had GW, had a third term he would have had us out in the same timeline that Obama has committed, maybe even sooner.

Obama was selected for coronation into power for one reason only. Afghanistan and the need to surge us into another “no back out scenario” With the Taliban we face challenges for sure but everytime we bomb a villiage, mostly women and children, those we do not kill become the thing that justifies the Elite, Corporatists and IMC effort to push the free markets of hell down their throats, much as they did to us a long time ago.

Oh yes, we are free to speak and free to dissent, but we are prisoners of the free market. If you can’t see this, you need to pause and check your bank account, balance sheet and prospects.

BUSH’s IRAQ – OBAMA’s VIETNAM

Afghanistan represents the same situation as Vietnam. Not in terrain but in geography.  Only bush monkeys and tunnel rats could navigate the Dien Bien Phu. But similarly we find the US in another conflict where they cannot fight the enemy under rocks.

South Vietnam was about 67,000 square miles of hills and jungle and at peak in 1969 the US had 550,000 troops in Vietnam and Laos. Whereas Afghanistan has over 251,000 square miles and we currently have roughly 38,000 troops.

Vietnam – 1 troop for every .12 square mile

Afghanistan – 1 troop every 6.6 square miles

Not quite a winning formula, yet the Taliban enemy doesn’t meet the number in Ho Nguyen Tat Thanh’s army. Yet it’s uncanny how we are staged to escalate the troops there for a surge that cannot achieve success. The plan of the New Order must be the same as they had in Vietnam.

A. Stage the Gulf of Tonkin and stage 911 to set the entry into the conflict.

B. Deploy troops in measured movements while lengthening the arms and weapons production for Corporatist profiteers.

C. Root out Communists  – Extremists and Rejectionists and place a democratic capitalist sympathetic government. Not.

We are not fighting an army, a political ideology or a genocidal fascist dictator. We are fighting a shadow that moves around the globe like the shadows of night to day. From the US to the Phillipine Islands, terrorists are present.

Terrorism and the war on terrorism is simply a state sponsored attack at a particular location to allow the state or authority to perpetrate a larger crime, be it pre-emptive war, martial law, human rights violation or simple fear and intimidation. The Corporatists don’t mind, it’s good for business. The governments don’t mind as it gives them a job and it never involves their military service and rarely that of their children. And finally the New Order [bankers] are the ultimate winners.

State sponsored terrorism has been around for a couple hundred years. You have to look at it from a business point of view. Bill has a bank. He makes money loaning money. Zeb has a bomb manufacturing plant and he makes weapons for protection. Bob has left the military, has no job but wants to be rich so he applies for work with Zeb. Bill has loaned Zeb money and Zeb has produced and sold some inventory. That’s great, but Bill wants to loan Zeb some money. Zeb says he doesn’t have the orders to pay the loan. Easy, Bill hires Bob to start a war. Now Zeb has the new orders to pay the loan. Bob runs for office paid for by Bill through Zeb. Bob will get rich and powerful and he won’t forget Bill and his generousity. Bill reminds him that he will hire more Bobs to go through the same ranks as he did. Bob understands. Bob is glad to have other friends that he can relate with. Bob is not a racist. He likes all military types no matter what color they are. They share a tradition of special service.

Bill tells Bob that his friends need to prove themselves and Bob needs to help them and protect them. Bob agrees. Meanwhile Zeb is bringing his friends to Bill and Bill is loaning to all Zebs friends. All Zebs friends are finding Bobs of their own. This goes on until they realize they need to start a fellowship, an organization, a private club for all members. So they meet and make their charter and begin their club. A group made up of nothing but “BillZebBobs”

As Obama [Bob] has a membership in the club, we can look forward to eighteen more months of Iraq, followed by an Afghanistan escalation and another LBJ Vietnam followed by another election of a Bob and another location for the club to initiate. Without reservation I state that we would be better off outside of the Middle East and outside the influence of the club.

We can take our chances and wait for the club to make the mistake and get caught with their hands in the cookie jar or if America can’t grasp the idea of electing a Ron Paul or Ralph Nader next time, we will be in conflict for eternity while we watch our friends and families die.

We can continue to watch our tax dollars go to the club members who loan it back to us at high interest while they play us for fools in the halls where once great men stood. Please see Robert Greenwalds “Why I am going to Afghanistan”

DEALING WITH IRAN: Anything but transparent
March 1, 2009

iran-or-bust

 When looking back at the Carter administration, there is no secret that the Shah had terminal cancer except to everyone outside the GHW Bush run CIA. The Bush CIA and the “regular CIA” operated in completely different planes. This information was given to former CIA director, and the U.S. Ambassador to Iran, Richard Helms. Reports were issued regarding Iran intelligence and were released in two formats. The reality of the Shahs future and the likely successors, one of which was Khomeini which was provided to the Bush covert intelligence faction and the other false analysis provided to the Carter administration. Carter had little support in CIA intelligence after the firing of eight hundred “covert agents” by his CIA director Stansfield Turner. This did more to damage the plans for Iran and subsequent grand plans for Bush and his oil and KBR / Halliburton corporate cartel.

It was determined that the split in the country would wind up in the hands of either Marxist or Islamic Fundamentalist factions. Khomeini offered the best solution for Bush and his future plans. The British and US consensus was agreed when Bush, Reagan and Thatcher met during the U. S. Embassy Country team meeting in 1978. The height of Elitist Monarchy would be ending. The economic disparity was at a high and the Shah did little to hide the excess spending. It is reported that in 1971 during the 2500 year celebration of Iranian Monarchy, that over $100,000,000.00 was spent on lavishing the guests. This was a substantial sum, even by today’s standards.

[FLASHBACK]

During the coup of 1953, the Shah was aligned with the US and British covert coup to remove from power Mohammed Mosaddeq the acting Prime Minister. Mosaddeq was known for his anti-intervention policies and his aim at the nationalization of the Iranian oil industry which had been controlled by the British under the APOC [British Petroleum BP] In this coup d’état, supported and funded by the British and U.S. governments and led by General Fazlollah Zahedi under the name Operation Ajax, he was ousted and Zahedi took over as Prime Minister.

Though the obvious financial implications for Britain were clear, the US as well had fears of Mosaddeq as a socialist and could not afford a communist regime developing in Iran. As we look back at the Cold War conspiracy and its aid to the financial elite banking entities, we see Iran as another case of Western or Israeli intervention to globalize and control trade and wealth. Had Mosaddeq been successful the people of Iran would have seen far better progress and economic benefit.

The Shah of Iran was the first Muslim leader to recognize the State of Israel, although when interviewed on CBS 60 Minutes by reporter, Mike Wallace, he criticized US Jews for their control over US media, politics and finance. This relationship though beneficial, had sustained much damage and the Shah’s continued decline in the eyes of the Iranian population made him a liability.

Enter the Lavon Affair , in 1954, one of Israel’s first known attempts at a SIS – CIA type false flag covert terrorist attack to undermine Western confidence in the Egyptian regime by generating public insecurity and actions to bring about arrests, demonstrations, and acts of revenge. Meanwhile Operation Susannah would totally conceal the Israeli desire to create Western concerns regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and stir anti-Muslim sentiment. The Mapai party split over responsibility for the “Lavon affair”, enter BenGurion, Mossad Chief Meir Amit, Jon and David Kimche, and the new Israeli masterminds in the US-Israel conspiracy called LOBBY.

Though the print media and political landscape in Washington was already well established, the need to step up the covert and counter intelligence was critical. David Kimche joined the Mossad in 1953. David Kimche’s primary duties were part of an Israeli effort to establish connections with international countries such as Iran, Turkey and remote countries such as Costa Rica, Panama, Singapore and Thailand.. He traveled frequently to Iran during the shah’s reign, where he developed a close friendship with Ya’akov Nimrodi, then the Israeli military attaché in Tehran, who became an arms dealer after his retirement. Nimrodi and David Kimche emerged later as central characters in Irangate. As many emerging third world countries, under the influence of Egyptian President Nasser, adopted an increasingly hostile attitude toward Israel, Kimche’s reach expanded. He used Israeli and CIA funding for military training and arms procurement to establish Israeli footholds in these countries. He was involved in the rise of Idi Amin in Uganda. [Forward] In 1978 the decision to return the exiled Khomeini had been decided. The players in this coup:

* Richard W. Cottam- University Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh [deceased/ cancer]

* Dr. Ibrahim Yazdi – Houston Texas Baylor College of Medicine [cancer research / oncology]

* Henry Precht – Chief of the Iran Desk in US State Department from 1978 to 1980

* Warren Zimmermann – Great Falls, VA – Yale University Fulbright scholar at Cambridge University [deceased / pancreatic cancer]

On January 16, 1979 in similar 1953 CIA coup style, Bush’s covert team deposited Khomeini in Iran and ushered the Shah out. On November 4, 1979, the U.S. Embassy was taken by the Khomeini and led by CIA agent Mashallah Kahsani. Enter the Iran Hostage Crisis and the end of Carters Presidency. President Carter was the target, in revenge for the firing of the 800 CIA operatives and George H. W. Bush. Considering the fact that Carter was acting President and the secret meetings and covert plans were in violation of US laws, why didn’t Carter take actions for this business?

The rumor mills point to an agreement between Iran and the Bush CIA for the release of hostages to obtain a Reagan win in 1980. Yet, the long term indications show a longtime effort to control Iran who possesses the largest oil reserves and the strategic forces that keeps Israel and Arabs from controlling it all.

Kimche and Mossad were very successful in the relations between Israel, Egypt and the Saudi’s. He had created very solid connections using suspect liaisons with the likes of Ya’akov Nimrodi, Israeli intelligence officer in Iran for two decades preceding the fall of the Shah. Ya’akov Nimrodi, Adnon Khasoggi and Adolph W. Schwimmer supervised sales of Israeli arms to the Islamic Republic of Iran and other suspect governments that we have had to deal with. While Americans were watching Robin Leach on TV show us the lifestyles of the rich he would also show us the lifestyles of the dangerous. Bill Clinton provided clemency to convicted smuggler Nimrodi during his term in office.

Kimche and the cohorts previously mentioned, along with the blessing of new Minister of Defense, Ariel Sharon concocted plans to spark an anti-Khomeini coup de tat by arming dissident exiled military personnel under the dethroned Shah Pahlavi.  The weapons and personnel would move through Sudan. This covert operation had connections with the Iran-Contra affair which convicted Bush operatives, “Cappy” Weinberger, Lt. Col. “Olie ” North, John Poindexter, Elliott Abrams, Robert McFarlane, Michael Leeden and other members who would be later pardoned by the CIA kingpin G.H.W. Bush. This cemented the Israeli-Arab-US Neocon LOBBY as a single minded unit to eliminate any Middle Eastern threat of socialism or fundamentalism.

There are more heinous and criminal element working in this group than ever made the FBI most wanted. All of them pardoned and walking free. Though Reagan was never implicated in Iran-Contra, he like Nixon allowed his associates to run amuck under complete non-transparency. This scandal was another major blow to the LOBBY.

Bush and Company decided to allow the Iran-Iraqi war to proceed. In fact G.H.W. Bush convinced Reagan to withdrawal Iraq from the list of known terrorist countries. During 1982 and 1893, they orchestrated over 5 billion dollars in loans and gave the green light for illegal arms transfers from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Egypt to Iraq. Once again we see the Bush & Co., Israeli and Arab factions in synchronizing efforts to assist in the destabilizing of Iran and perpetuate what would be an eight year conflict. The CIA provided Iraqi with technical assistance in the use of chemical weapons and later shipped Anthrax and other biological weapons that would later be used against US troops in the illegal Iraqi invasion.

Arming Iraq: A Chronology of U.S. Involvement By: John King, March 2003

This Chronology contains multiple illegal violations of the Reagan-Bush era and contributes very clear intent for what would later happen under the Bush II regime. On 3 July 1988 the U.S. Navy shot down Iran Air Flight 655 with the loss of all 290 passengers and crew. The American government claimed that the airliner had been mistaken for an Iranian F-14 Tomcat, and that the U.S.S. Vincennes was operating in international waters at the time and feared that it was under attack, which later appeared to be untrue. The Iranians, however, maintain that the Vincennes was in fact in Iranian territorial waters, and that the Iranian passenger jet was turning away and increasing altitude after take-off. U.S. Admiral William J. Crowe also admitted to Ted Koppel on Nightline that the Vincennes was inside Iranian territorial waters when it launched the missiles.

On 21 March 1986, the United Nations Security Council made a declaration stating that “members are profoundly concerned by the use of chemical weapons on Iranian troops and the members of the Council strongly condemned use of chemical weapons as a clear violation of the Geneva Protocol of 1925 which prohibits the use in war of chemical weapons.” The United States under Reagan-Bush was the only member who voted against the issuance of this declaration.

Clinton’s involvement started back prior to Iran Contra. He as well was key in the Mena Airport/CIA drug smuggling operation, once Congress had signed the Boland Amendment which limited US involvement in the Nicaragua conflict by covert CIA and Contra rebels. Some of Reagan’s national security officials used non-appropriated money spent by the National Security Council to circumvent the Amendment. As president, Clinton with full knowledge of the Iran -China connection and the financial and nuclear trading between the two countries, President Clinton, the CIA deliberately gave Iranian physicists blueprints for part of a nuclear bomb that likely helped Tehran advance its nuclear weapons development program. This debacle called “Operation Merlin,” was intended to be a misinformation drop that backfired. Supposedly a complete error of intention, this proves to be a calculated effort to arm Iran with the ability to become the threat that the LOBBY is trying to prove to move to war.

Unlike the failed efforts to prove WMD in Iraq and using chemical weapons as a reason when in fact the US government sold them the cache, the LOBBY is going to make sure they have the intelligence as they themselves are providing it. Six months before G.W. Bush left office he signed a secret finding authorizing a covert offensive against the Iranian regime that, according to those familiar with its contents is, “unprecedented in its scope.” This means what appears to be a transparent attempt to find a weed out terrorist in several Middle East countries in reality is a stepped up attempt to get additional US-Israeli-Arab efforts to create an improved Yellowcake Recipe for the invasion of Iran.

I cannot go without commenting on our honest and fair MSM. When Mike Wallace and 60 minutes sliced and diced the interview with President Ahmadinejad , we had to stomach an Emmy for this hack job. Take a step back and think about being an Iranian citizen and reading the history I have mentioned, presented by Iranian government slant and imagine how you would see the United States, Israel and the Western Capitalists Ideology.

For what has been a systematic, premeditated, sinister, illegal, unethical and deplorable chronology, we as Americans must be furious over it and if we continue to allow the highest powers of the land to talk to us about transparency while accepting this as government, then we have allowed ourselves to become willing participants in the same kind of terrorism they want us to believe we were victims of on 9/11/2001.

The X-factor
February 1, 2009

bearstearns

We have all become way too familiar with the private formulas for criminal greed. Such as: Lincoln Savings and Loan, Tyco, WorldCom, etc.

(E+F) = Y. This is Earnings plus Fraud (bad loans, embezzlement, kickback) =Y (Y is the subsequent failure or financial collapse with conspirators redistributing the wealth to their pockets)

or  Enron, Arthur Anderson

(E+F) x (MV+W) = Y.  This formula works as Earnings plus Fraud (criminal practices, cooked books, creative accounting) times the inflated Market Value plus W (W is Wall Street insider info, Trader inside tipping) equals Y (which is the collapse with conspirators getting out with massive gains)

The refined formula is shear genius in the GLOBALIZATION WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION CONSPIRACY. It brings the FED and central banks into the formula.

For the housing meltdown Bear Stearns, Federal Reserve, JPMorgan

(E+F) x (MV+W) x (Y+Z) = X. This formula works as Earnings plus Fraud (criminal practices, cooked books, creative accounting) times the inflated Market Value plus W (W is Wall Street (insider info, Trader inside tipping) times Y (which is the collapse with conspirators getting out with golden parachutes) + Z (The “Z” Bankers, Federal Reserve, Government) = X?

The X-Factor?

Let’s delve into the X factor, shall we?  When Reagan and Bush were up to their ears in the recession and double digit interest rates left from the Carter administration, the fix was simple. Get government out of business. This is the ground floor of Republican economic ideology. Stimulate the economy yet keep regulation to absolute minimum. Allow competition to flourish, deregulate industry, keep bureaucracy to minimum and provide large tax breaks to corporations and wealthy to reinvest in existing and new business and let the economy trickle down to all. It was a good plan at the time and somewhat successful. The only drawback was the continuation of the national debt which was doubled during the twelve years even after he said it was our biggest problem during his campaign. Presidents as far back as Wilson were able to reduce the national debt to GDP percentages consistently until Reagan. Blame Reagan/Bush.

Clinton came in with strong economy but a huge national debt which he reversed during his time, plus he left with a budget surplus. Great? No. Not great. Clinton passed the WTO China trade deal in 1999 as well as furthered the WTO, ITO and UN efforts to open the trade  barriers which attracted the greed driven corporations to outsource manufacturing, IT, communications and call center services and he signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Blame Bill Clinton.

Let’s blame Congress. It was they who passed Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The bills were introduced in the Senate by Phil Gramm (R-TX) and in the House of Representatives by James Leach (R-IA). The bills were passed by a 54-44 vote along party lines with Republican support in the Senate and by a 343-86 vote in the House of Representatives[2]. Nov 4, 1999: After passing both the Senate and House the bill was moved to a conference committee to work out the differences between the Senate and House versions. The final bill resolving the differences was passed in the Senate 90-8-1 and in the House: 362-57-15. This veto proof legislation was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on November 12, 1999.  It was the democrats who wanted changes in the bill to protect consumers [CRA]. What it really did was open the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac free for all and encouraged the fraudulent predatory mortgage practices by giving loans to NINJA (no income, no job no assets) market and well you know the rest. The mortgagers, bank, hedge groups, Wall Street, rating agencies etc. all greedy and complicit.

Along with the deregulation issues and the building of this gigantic house of cards, the government has allowed the merging of these large financial, banking and insurance companies. The monopoly factor aside, it created the inability to let said companies fail. At least that’s what they inferred as they sold taxpayers the bailout. Were democrats more responsible for those? Yes, and we still don’t see significant results.

The point is that Greenspan and Clinton needed the housing sector to offset the trade agreements and the devastating effects that it would have on the US economy. They knew it and they were complicit in providing the two key ingredients, the money and the deregulation. The fact is that if Clinton and Greenspan had not created this housing surge the US would have had a negative GDP for three years after Clinton left office. This was the combined loss of jobs in the US over his term and the interest rates.

George Bush was correct when he said he inherited a recession. He would have inherited a depression had it not been for housing market ponzi which would eventually be paid for by taxpayers. He just made matters worse with Iraq which furthered the strain on the budget deficits and national debt. He attempted the Reagan wealthy tax breaks and trickle down formula to stimulate with similar results. He gets credit for that but he did not manage the looming problem that I believe all of Congress and the FED knew was coming. These wealthy tax beneficiaries lost substantial assets as did the taxpayers.

Any credible financial expert could have seen the enormous risk, uncertainty and warning signs of the sequence of these events. Literally, you can picture America’s economy leaking out of every orifice.  Why then do partisan politics throw blame around? The answer is to keep the American people from seeing the collective and colossal conspiracy by the government as a whole to redistribute the wealth from an IMF fiat based scam to an inevitable crash of currency and those who survive holding the limited hard assets. How can Americans still look to one of the two parties as not complicit in conspiracy?

Does President Obama’s economic rescue plan encourage you? I’ve read it. I just downloaded it in .txt and did a find for “$”. What a miserable trip that was. I see another near trillion dollars of pork barrel going to places they shouldn’t. If it’s the housing market that got us here why are we not addressing it head on with all resources? Why is that not the battle cry for one party? Why don’t we take the 800 billion dollars and give the 138 million taxpayers $6000.00 and take the toxic assets and break them into manageable mortgages and repackage them? How would the American people vote on that referendum?

The truth can be said at this point. The collective body of government is a gelatinous heap of meaningless hubris molded, manipulated and managed by the corporate and banking interests with a single goal. “X”

Does “X” equal depression, bankruptcy, starvation, or worse? Or does X equal the American people standing up collectively without partisan baggage and political preference or tie and demanding this kind of referendum in lieu of revolution. I don’t have to tell you what my solution is.  X = U

 

 

 

 

One point of light and I’ll take it.

A campaign promise got some immediate attention Wednesday when President Obama overturned George Bush’s EO 13233. 

Obamas memo courtesy of G. W. University http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20090121/2009_transparency_memo.pdf  The

Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978


•Defines and states public ownership of the records.

•Places the responsibility for the custody and management of incumbent Presidential records with the President.

•Allows the incumbent President to dispose of records that no longer have administrative, historical, informational, or evidentiary value, once he has obtained the views of the Archivist of the United States on the proposed disposal.

•Requires that the President and his staff take all practical steps to file personal records separately from Presidential records.

•Establishes a process for restriction and public access to these records. Specifically, the PRA allows for public access to Presidential records through the Freedom of Information Act (United States) (FOIA) beginning five years after the end of the Administration, but allows the President to invoke as many as six specific restrictions to public access for up to twelve years. The PRA also establishes procedures for Congress, courts, and subsequent administrations to obtain special access to records that remain closed to the public, following a thirty-day notice period to the former and current Presidents.

•Requires that Vice-Presidential records are to be treated in the same way as Presidential records.

Executive Order 12667 Section 2(b) of Executive Order 12667, issued by former President Ronald Reagan on January 16, 1989, requires the Archivist of the United States to delay release of Presidential records at the instruction of the current President.  

Alberto Gonzales, on behalf of the President G. W. Bush, instructed the National Archive to extend for 90 days until June 21, 2001, the time in which President Bush could claim a constitutionally based privilege over the Presidential records that former President Reagan, acting under Section 2204(a) of Title 4, has protected from disclosure for the 12 years since the end of his Presidency. This directive applies as well to the Vice Presidential records of former Vice President George H.W. Bush.  Executive Order 13233, which I signed into law on November 1, 2001

The White House press release and the smoking gun disclaimer

” First, let me state what Executive Order 13233 is NOT. It is NOT my father and I conspiring to prevent the release of eight years worth of Reagan administration documents which were scheduled to become public within a matter of weeks. It is NOT the product of my family’s abiding fear that the aforementioned documents contain excrutiatingly embarassing revelations about my father and members of the present administration, which, when considered as a whole, could very well call into question the legitimacy of our political dynasty. And finally, it is NOT a patently obvious attempt to dictate how history will judge our Presidencies.”

Executive Order 13233 On November 1, 2001, Bush issued Executive Order 13233, limiting the access to the records of former U.S. Presidents. Many critics have noted that the five-page executive order, drafted by the White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales, would give either an incumbent president or a former president the right to withhold the former president’s papers from the public. Enacting Executive Order 13233 was not the first time Bush and White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales had resisted clear law about Freedom of Information in Government. It had also occurred as then-Governor Bush was leaving office in Texas, when nearly 2000 boxes of documents were withheld by G.W. Bush from the Texas State Archives. Bush avoided that FOIA by placing them in daddy’s Presidential Library.

On March 1, 2007, a subcommittee of the Committee on Government Reform held a hearing on bill H.R. 1255, the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2007. This bill was also introduced by Rep. Henry Waxman, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and its goal was to void Order 13233.  At the hearing, several historians argued that Executive Order 13233 has severely curtailed public access to presidential records and added to delays in obtaining materials from presidential libraries. The bill was reported favorably by the full committee, and on March 14, 2007, the House passed the bill in an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 333-93.  The bill also passed on June 13, 2007 in a Senate committee, but was never brought to the floor for a vote, reportedly due to a hold placed on the measure by Kentucky Republican Senator Jim Bunning As a result, the bill never made it to the floor before the end of the 110 Congress.

 

 

On  Wednesday, January 21, 2009, Executive Order 13233 was revoked by executive order of President Obama.  He essentially restored the wording of Executive Order 12667, by repeating most of the text of that order with minor changes. One notable change is that vice presidential records are explicitly covered by his new order. This will include G.H.W. Bush under Reagan as well as his four year term as President. Bush will be likely to add additional volumes to his library at Southern Methodist University.  

What still remains to be done is address the PRA violations of the missing volumes of  email and conducting political and campaigning business on White House servers. This buries the culpable players in the fired US Attorneys scandal and sheds more emphasis on the need to continue subpoenas for Karl Rove, Harriet Miers and Josh Bolten.  It is hard to imagine the gravy hasn’t seen the shredder by now but at least Obama’s claim for transparency has shown some intent with this quick and decisive move on his first day in office. Future FOIA discoveries will be very interesting to connect the dots of Dick Cheney and G.H.W. Bush from the twelve years of Reagan /Bush conspiracies. 

Feel free to let Obama and Biden know you appreciate the effort and hope that this starts a process of further investigations into the numerous black holes circulating through the eight year time warp from which we have just emerged.  CHANGE.GOV

Welcome aboard the inaugural express to the abyss

Want Ad for Justice

Want Ad for Justice

The Obama express has left the station. The passengers, a large group of hopefuls fighting for position to get the best seats. Where is this train heading?  Well, let’s see if we can figure it out.

It’s being conducted by a man who supposedly is a driver for change. I can’t see that based upon his actions so far. He’s decided to look forward and forsake the past. Does that denote change? For years we have seen the pardons, absence of justice and Potomac two-step when it comes to finding and holding culpable figures who conducted these actions, agendas and crimes in manner as to railroad them over the constitution. Obama chooses the same.

As to putting an end to conflicts and wars which have left death and destruction of millions in it’s wake for reasoning that appears to be a lie or at least the largest single misjudgement ever conceived and perpetrated on civilization, Obama’s continued silence and sidestepping of the added conflict in Gaza seems to be business as usual.

Wasteful spending, bailouts and failure to address foreclosures are the list toppers while this expensive, overblown and grandiose of a spectacle is taking place early next week.  I suggest a mock hanging of  Mr. Madoff might help add some needed relevance to this pompous and bloated ceremony.

Yes indeed the Change Express has left the station.  With fear as it’s conductor. The enemy is the engine you never see. The seats are promises, soft and comfy. The scenery is propaganda, beautifully choreographed. The ticket is bought and paid for by pride, greed and hatred. The rail is ideology that unlike logic and reasoning is sinuous and chaotic but the destination clear. You have boarded the express to the imaginary land of milk and honey. Please watch your step as you disembark into the abyss.

                                      ________________________
A wise man knows you cannot discern your enemy until you see
him face to face. A just man cannot intelligently defend himself until that enemy has mounted an offensive. A righteous man will not offend those who have not offended him and a man of courage will die before killing the innocent.

Without Impeachment…Justice
December 26, 2008

murderers_row-copy

“Change” is nickels and dimes with without the rule of law.
If this is what we are to expect with this administration we might as well vote for Tony Soprano in 2012. Make a statement and set a precedent by finally holding culpable figures to the scrutiny of a legal review without the pardons and executive privilege that undermines the constitution and rule of law.

This means the congressional subpoena’s that have been ignored and snubbed by Bush under the illegal option of executive privilege. Now we can go after the truth outside of presidential power abuse once he is out of office. But we have to get his plans for massive pardons for the most heinous offenses ever allowed to slither out of the nets of our suspect justice system.

What are the options:

OPTION 1

Nadler Resolution Has 9 Co-Sponsors
 

Thanks to your emails and calls, Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s resolution against pardons and for a Special Prosecutor (H.Res. 1531) now has 9 co-sponsors:

 Tammy Baldwin (WI02), Steve Cohen (TN09), Barney Frank (MA04), Barbara Lee (CA09), John Lewis (GA05), Carolyn Maloney (NY14), Ed Pastor (AZ04), Pete Stark (CA13), and Robert Wexler (FL19).

If one of them represents you, please call their office at 202-224-3121 to say thanks. Otherwise call your Representative and ask why they have not co-sponsored H.Res. 1531, and (politely) demand that they do.

Sign the petition online and it will go to your Senator and Congressperson http://www.democrats.com/nadler-pardons

Read the resolution:

http://www.house.gov/apps/list/press/ny08_nadler/PreEmptPardons_112108.html

OPTION 2

Circumvent the pardons and go after Miers, Bolten and Rove. It is my understanding that pardons do not include contempt of court. Pitting the judicial branch directly with the excesses of the executive branch fails in all other cases. I need legal opinion on this. The contempt of congress complaint was filed in March of 08 and went to Federal District Court.  Judge John Bates rules in partial summary judgement. He rendered his opinion.

Once the 110th Congress ends, so does the contempt complaint. That is unless the new administration and/or  111th Congress submits the complaints. Administration Lawyers filed the appeal in October. As the clock runs out, it is hard not to see the failures of key figures such as Pelosi, Reid and Conyers to force this issue and maybe have the Sargent at arms arrest them. Since the matter of the attorney firings lends itself to the partisan politics and election, it also was a matter of investigations to expose key democrats such as Ex-Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and possible election fraud[2002].  The pressure by Conyers, Wexler and the other members of the HCJ need to be pressured.  John Conyers represents the 14th District in Michigan and the President sits on the bank that may bail out the auto manufacturers. Hmmm! Interesting.

OPTION 3

If pardons are forthcoming for all guilty parties, do the pardons have to be specific as to the the malfeasance committed? In the cases of illegal wiretapping, torture, lying to Congress, illegal use of power, etc. is it just a blanket pardon to include the like of murder of a family member?

The route should then go to civil cases by every family who lost a son or daughter in the illegal Iraqi invasion, every family member who’s son or daughter went to Guantanamo or other secret facility, every American who had been wiretapped and every single fired U.S. Attorney. 

This administration has destroyed this country using every crime in the books. Anybody using the defense of national security should be ashamed.  “Destroying within what you are trying to protect from without ” never rang truer than in the case of this last eight years.

 

 

Does Obama have his tip sheet?
December 25, 2008

murderers_row-copy

Tip 1 – There is no Al-Qaeda?  Just a bunch of poppy growing mujahideen the CIA recruited for terror against Russia and now anybody who’ll pay.  Bin-Laden has been dead for sometime now.

Tip 2 – No 911 terror attacks? That’s right. Just three sick buildings and an insurance scam that were set for detonation that started after 1993 bombing which was an inside job as well. Just a front for the Bush Co. oil grab.

Tip 3 – Don’t get angry about the fact you were ‘set up’ for the toughest incoming presidential nightmare since Jimmy Carter. Remember what Nixon-Kissinger-Ford left him? He tried a national energy policy and reduced foreign oil imports in half.

Tip 4 – Free trade is never free! It comes at the cost of death, slavery, hunger, corruption and unemployment. Be prepared to pony up if you are going to play that game.

Tip 5 – Nobody in the current administration is glad you are there or wishes you well. Pat Robertson and every Neo-Con is laughing behind your back and waiting for 2012.

Tip 6 – Don’t fall for the cream puff bullshit from these folks. They are quietly trying to slither out with complimentary trinkets and tripe.  Go after them if you are the man you claim to be.

Tip 7 – While you are asked to suck up to Israel, find out why the MOSSAD has been killing our troops?

Tip 8 – When the US goes bankrupt during your term, remember to send the FED a billion dollar bad check and buy us out of that central bank.

Tip 9 – Watch your back. Your cabinet sucks! Remember Caesar?

Tip 10 – Learn to play the violin.

As predicted…..

Well it didn’t take long to see the writing on the wall after reviewing the appointees to this sure to be “disappinting cabinet of special interests and agendas.”  Once again we have a Clinton “esque” agenda by Obama.

Based upon the NWO agenda and the recent appointments we can see sure path to ruin. The Labor Secretary and Trade appointment surely indicate the NAFTA and NAU are coming. The immigration issue will be dismissed with a open border/amnesty program to follow. The anti-American trade deals of the Clinton administration will never be addressed under this President and it will continue Americas slide into a third world state.

After Clintons agenda to get this NAFTA and China deal done we then had to suffer the Bush redistribution of wealth. Now Obama trauma is coming. If you are middle America, bend over.  The plans of this administration will put the middle class on eye level with the snakes that sit in the Senate.

https://puddydunne.wordpress.com/2008/07/26/driving-the-nafta-highway-to-globalization/

The best way to destroy the middle class is to devalue their homes. As the largest investment it becomes the real middle class bank and investment portfolio. The mortgage meltdown was planned and executed to perfection. When I caught on to it in 2003, I made my plans to sell high, move to less home, hide the rest outside of Wallstreet and buy gold. It paid off well for me. In December 2004 after the circus election of Kerry, I knew for sure this was the strategy. I told my people the same thing. Some followed my advise most did not. Now they sit in homes worth 60% of their debt. They lost money in 401K’s and investments and couldn’t borrow a dime for less than their VISA rate.

What I did not know was the conspiracy of the gas hike in the Bin-Laden /Bush League attempt to get the ANWR and domestic drilling bans lifted. I think it may have been a payoff to Saudi Arabia for their help in 911 terror recruiting. I’m still looking for more smoke there. One thing is certain, the minute Obama arrived iv victory and met with Green Gore the idea of a new energy policy and the green movement to energy independence became a serious idea, the fuel prices plummeted. Are you shocked? As I stated in March, gas would peak at $5 a gallon and fall over the next eighteen months to $1.25.  It did not peak to $5 but I think it will bottom out at $1.25.  If it does you can see another conspiracy immaculately planned and carried out.

There are enough oil, coal and gas reserves on earth to fuel us into 2185.  It is a matter of the 3 trillion barrels left and the owners could not sell it fast enough. 

PREDICTIONS FOR  2009

  • Rising tensions in Pakistan flare serious concerns for India, US and NATO alliances. Iran tension increases as economic conditions decline. Any withdrawal from Iraq will merely be deployment to Afghanistan/Pakistan border
  • Palestinian unrest when Olmert fails to curb the settlement building in Gaza after meetings with US and Europe. Lebanon and Syria react unfavorably and Iran stirs the pot.
  • Americans will find an uneasy homeland security team assessment for 2009 and as I predicted there will be a biological attack somewhere in the south. Likely Florida, Georgia or Texas.
  • Obama will be ineffective during the first year and all campaign initiatives and plans will be re-prioritized for continuing financial market concerns and these Middle Eastern issues.
  • Several other large corporations will file chapter 11 and continual layoffs will peak unemployment to 9% by summer.  A stimulus package becomes a passing idea in lieu of jobless claims and unemployment payouts.  Treasury books show bailout to Banks were useless and without merit and there are calls for the heads of Paulson and Bernake. Obama balks on any criminal actions against any persons.
  • Reprisals in America are targeted at Jewish institutions and persons. FBI and law enforcement go on extended investigation.
  • Americans drown their sorrows by going into the Caylee Anthony Murder Investigation and Indictment/Trial. It makes the Simpson ordeal look  like a one trick pony.
  • Merck, Phizer and other PhRMA Corporations report record profits from anti-depressant drug sales.
  • Dick Cheney dies of heart complications

Bush’s secret deal
December 13, 2008

freejail-copy

The ego of G W Bush has took a severe beating over the last four years. With the talk of impeachment and criminal investigations looming, has the lion turned pussy-cat decided to cut the deal with the automotive bailout the GOP consensus calls “billions down the drain?”

I have said from day one any bailout is wrong. Whatever crunch the economy takes it comes back stronger next time. Check your history there. What motive could Bush have for dipping into the mismanaged coffers of the Paulson Pot of Gold?  His legacy….please!  It would appear to me to be a get out of jail free card and I am sure of what I know. The two party system spends an enormous amount of time playing the roles of bitterly divided ideologies but when it is all over for the day they will always protect the sanctity of the government and dismiss any conspiracy.

The trillion dollar financial bailout was delivered to the treasury for serious concerns regarding credit and loan markets drying up. The decision not to let Detroit take the bankruptcy route would be the most blatant theft of taxpayer money to date. Obama, the UAW and his new cronies are making deals and he hasn’t even been sworn in.   Bush must have decided this administration is far to dangerous without his pardon covered.

While the country pants at the second coming of FDR or JFK, the GOP still seethes over the election and the unfair media coverage and attacks by the liberal journalists and pundits.  The aftermath reality to me seems to indicate the failure of eight years of decider~ism, constitutional negligence, Vietnam flashback syndrome and mostly the “business as usual rhetoric” which came out of the McCain/Palin camp.

Why wouldn’t the GOP create the illusion of disatisfaction and the illusion of reformation long before the pile hit the fan.  Did they just fall asleep throughout the last four years in which every decision and every movemade by the Bush Admin. was a railroad spike in the coffin of the party? Did they not see the Elephant death march?  Were they not aware the disappearance of Dick Cheney and Karl Rove for the last year?  How could they miss the collective actions of inaction to the problems looming? Were they too busy managing their portfolios and feathering their nests through 2004 and just oblivious to the Bush spending spree?

When McCain and Palin formed their tar and feather relationship, was there any science to the plan for a serious campaign or was it a chance to test a possible presidential election win based upon a movie type script of just being so absurd it seemed right? Americans generally are unique, brave,  and like the exploration and element of risk in life, but this package was just too mysterious to put under their XMAS tree.   We are bright enough as a nation to realize that the world is cyclical, change is inevitable and balance is required.  Conservatism and liberalism fluctuates through our history and the need for balance is required.  Eight years of George Bush was a most enlightening look into what damage Neo-Conservatism presents when engaged in the greedy and unrestrained pursuit of wealth and power in a Global Marketing system gone wild.

Gov. Palin represents the Best of Neo-Conservatism (which I loathe) along with the best traits of the “ugly American” (which I abhor) and presents it in the traditional (F)oxymoronic way. For centuries we have been a country of immigrants and we still don’t get it.  If indeed, America is supposed to lead the world, then understanding Islam, Judaism, Hindu and Buddism religions and cultures is the prime requisite to move this country forward . It was clear from day one that Brett and Bart Maverick had no business in leading the world. Alaska still represents the last of the wild west mentality. I’ve had enough northern exposure to last a lifetime.

Laura’s busy with packing, George with pardons
November 15, 2008

freejail-copy

While Laura is busy packing up at Pennsylvania Avenue, George is busy getting a massive list of pardons in order. No doubt that the laws broken by this administration and subpeonas that were ignored were a ruse to wait for the this day of amnesty for the most corrupt group of individuals ever to inhabit the highest office in the land. Richard Nixon would be ashamed of this seedy lot.

I had the same outrage when Bill Clinton did it too. It’s not a partisan issue. It’s a ethical issue.  Please sign the petition.

Dear Puddy,

Congratulations on the fabulous and historic election of President Barack Obama!!! As we celebrate our new President-elect and all the changes he will bring to our nation, we must not turn a blind eye to the final actions of George Bush.

Incredibly, Washington is already buzzing with Bush’s plans to block all investigations of his crimes and even to pardon everyone involved – including Cheney and himself. Chris Matthews is even counting down the days . Does Bush have the power to pardon everyone in his administration? Yes.  Will he abuse that power to stay out of jail? Only if we let him.

We must create a groundswell of opposition to any pardons by George Bush, so he understands that he will be impeached and prosecuted for issuing corrupt pardons.  Please help us launch a massive movement against pardons by signing our petition to Congress and telling your friends:
http://democrats.com/pardon?cid=ZGVtczE4NDI2OGRlbXM=

We will announce additional plans to stop Bush’s pardons in the coming days. Read more about our efforts and join our discussion here:

Thanks for all you do!

Must See: McCain gives taxpayer his economic plan
October 24, 2008

Ruuters(UPI) October 22, 2008, Cincinnati, OH – While campaigning in Ohio, Sen. John McCain stopped to speak to a undecided voter who asked him about his economic plan. The Senator explained his decision to keep the wealthy tax breaks permanent. Among the permanent tax breaks McCain added additional benefits including further trade imbalances, additional employment to overseas individuals, continued veto of minimum wage increases, privatized health care and social security with huge golden parachutes to CEO and upper management, mortgage relief to families via foreclosure and better wardrobe budgets for his cabinet members (Neiman Marcus) and for the rest of Americans (W-Mart) 

When asked about the GOP spending rocket, McCain quickly jumped in to state that all this reckless spending would end. Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, education grants and welfare would be eliminated. He indicated that the spending could be used for more important matters such as Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Homeland Security. 

The Senator did not identify the undecided voter by name but did inquire his business. The man stated he was a plumber and Senator McCain therefore, felt very comfortable delivering his economic stimulus plans to the American blue collar cellar dweller.

Congress: The Firemen become the Arsonists
October 3, 2008

The vote for H Res 3997 (revised) is underway. What it won’t offer is mortgage foreclosure protection for the people, liquidity for the US Banks who borrowed from Fed and ethical mainstreet credit providers.

Dennis J. Kucinich, D-Ohio, described how a 90-year-old widow in Ohio apparently shot herself in the chest this week as sheriff’s deputies knocked on her door with eviction papers for the home where she’s lived for nearly 40 years.

“I have learned to hold popular opinion of no value”- Alexander Hamilton (the greatest conspirator for the central bank idea and the greed and control over America) and now they are flexing this ideology and pursuing this notion.

They purposely delayed the response in order to have to have a fire-sale at taxpayer expense. Followed by the media “doom and gloom” speech much as the 911 scenario. FEAR, FEAR, FEAR followed by the rush in lieu of judgement.  Had the problem been addressed last September, we would have had a better understanding of liquidity needs, mortgage foreclosure forecasts and a plan to restructure FMAE and FMAC to become the designers of refinance program and breaking down these derivatives to handle them on a one by one basis.

This was a swindle from ABC Mortgage all the way up the gravy train to the FED and Alan Greenspan. Now Paulson steps in as the innocent dupe stuck with the task of fixing it.  What happened next is typical X-Factor. Get all the perpetrators out of the way and present the unculpable parties who enter to fix the problems.  Take the spotlight off the legal-criminal end by pressing the dire need to act.

What they have succeeded to remove from your concerns are:

  • $10,000,000,000  – monthly bill for Iraq
  • $80,000,000,000 – Iraq financial reserve
  • The war itself and timetable
  • Impeachment for Bush,Cheney for knowingly misleading intelligence for invasion
  • The US Attorney firings – In session today as we speak
  • The trade agreements that continue to cost more jobs than this meltdown ever caused
  • Energy and oil debacle
  • Accountability for all these guilty parties

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED FOR DISASTER

My advise, “Don’t take any Wooden Arrows”

Vote 2008…just peanuts
October 3, 2008

Just take a moment to look at your situation. As you approach the election, the first thing you should see is that before McCain or Obama become the next president, they and the congressional conspirators are trying to pass this bail out that will literally put you, your children and your grandchildren in a position of absolute servitude to the national debt.

This bail out money will mostly go to foreign banks. The rest will go to the worst offenders of greed. Little to nothing will go to US citizens in the way of mortgage help or to small business in the way of credit flow since it is not explicitly mandated. The new bill is full of ridiculous pork, mostly tainted to buy some other “aye votes” from fence walkers.

I have never seen such a massive effort to pass the worst legislation in American History and please, I assure you this is the worst decision since the Iraqi invasion.  We have been freefalling down that slippery slope and the finish line is very close.

Tonight we are going to hear wisdom. No not from Biden and most assuredly not from Palin, but from Lou Dobbs and Warren Buffet.  The clear fact is the Treasury must buy the assets to make financial instututions liquid. But the plan should use another sum to go to keep these mortgages whole and people in these homes. If it requires requires restructuring the mortgage to pre adjusted rates and spend that money now. This plan will not address it or eliminate the slide of foreclosures and home value which is the credit market for middle America. 

 Just like the Iraqi invasion, this should never have happened. But it has and that’s the fact. I will hope the criminals are brought to justice but now we need to act. The US should have gone in with a better forsight to Iraq and they should have done the same here a year ago.  If they had been smart they would have gone in quick and with all the guns. Now we have ‘bandaids for bullet wounds’

The result for every American should be a realization that we need a third party in this country. The one that takes the best of both current parties and shitcans the rest. It is based upon truth, oversight, American values and laws. This is something that has been lost in our government and it is bi-partisan.

I think that since we did not act at the right time, the house should again reject this bill and go back to the pit and up the price to a trillion and mandate the housing market rescue in the new bill and be exact on golden parachutes and market oversight.

Election 2008:The running of the Bulls…….
September 26, 2008

and the killing of the Bears. Let me explain the Running of the Bulls.

  • JOHN MCCAIN –  running from the debate. He like his chosen running mate need constant breifing on the vast emptiness of their knowledge. Palin on any foreign policy and McCain on economics. The debate would kill him if he were to have to explain his involvement in this mess since 1991. That Bull is running.
  • FED, WALLSTREET, FAT -CAT CONGRESS, INVESTMENT BANKS AND SPECULATORS running for cover and pushing the ill-conceived and completely unconstitutional bail out. Those bulls are running.
  • CEO CRIMINALS – running for cover under their lawyers from FBI prosecution for years of illegal activity under GRAMM-LEACH-BLILEY. Those bulls are running.
  • CREDIT MARKETS – running to turn off the faucets.
  • BUSH LEAGUE – running for the life of the GOP as they scramble before their house of cards completely collapses. Whistle-blowers are lining up to cover their tails.

And then there are the bears. The Predictors Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, Kevin Phillips, Robert Shiller and Karl Marx and other very wise folks.

  • The .COM/TECH – these bears died a horrible but quick death. It was a righteous death as a warning to wallstreets inability to monitor itself or verify others and showed us the X-factor at work. ie WORLDCOM (the houses with no brick or mortar)
  • The US ENERGY INITIATIVES – The failure of Wallstreet to get behind these enterprises and the BIG OIL lobby to crush it politically killed a major bear that we might have had an eight year head start on. Brutal death.
  • AMERICAN MANUFACTURING – This bear has suffered for twenty years, the most excruciating torturous murder. Medicated by cheap, poor quality and sometimes toxic goods, this bear has continued to struggle for it’s very existence (much like the ones in Alaska and northern points)
  • CREDIT FOUNTAIN- This bear took the bait and got it’s foot caught in the bloodiest of traps. Inflicted by the pushers of the most addictive substance known to man. FREE MONEY.
  • FEDERAL RESERVE FOLLY – Over printing, over extending, using the PRIME like your child uses your thermostat. Circus bears parading in tutu’s and everyone,s happy until the bear attacks.

HERE’S THE SOLUTIONS AND GET READY TO SCALE WAY BACK FOLKS

RALPH NADERS 10 POINT PLANImmediate Changes Required for Any Bailout

– No bailouts without conditions and reciprocity in the form of stock warrants

– No more lobbying for any company that is bailed out

– No golden parachutes and get out of jail free cards for guilty executives

– No bailouts without public hearings

 

Changes to Housing Market

– Reduce the moral hazard in U.S. mortgage markets by introducing covered bonds for the majority of mortgage products as they do in Western Europe. That gives institutions that finance mortgages an incentive to be prudent, because they cannot just unload them and wipe their hands clean of the liability, but are instead on the hook if the homeowner defaults.

– Maintain neighborhood stability and housing security by passing a law with a sunset clause allowing below median-value homeowners facing foreclosure the right to rent-to-own their homes at fair market value rates.

– Avoid future housing bubbles by removing implicit government guarantees for new mortgages that exceed thresholds of greater than 15-20 times the annual fair market rent value of the home.

 

Structural Changes to Financial Markets

– Make the Federal Reserve a Cabinet Position, so it is accountable to Congress, as well as making sure all Federal Reserve Bank presidents are appointed by the President and answerable to congress.

– Reduce conflicts of interest by taking away power for auditor and rating agency selection from companies and placing it in the hands of the SEC to be administered on random assignment.

– Implement a securities speculation tax, starting with derivatives to deter casino-style capitalism.

PUDDY DUNNES PLAN –

The Federal Reserve is mostly owned by Foreign Banks – The assassination’s of Lincoln and Kennedy had to do with the attempts to eliminate foreign banks.  the bill in 1913 creating the Federal Reserve Bank had a simple back-out clause. The investors loaned the United States Government $1 billion. And the back-out clause allows the United States to buy out the system for that $1 billion. If the Federal Reserve Bank were demolished and the Congress of the United States took control of the currency, as required in the Constitution, the National Debt would virtually end overnight, and the need for more taxes and even the income tax, itself. We buy out of the Federal Reserve for a billion dollars move the economy to a sales tax only. At 10%, a sales tax would cover it all and pay off the national debt.  Social Security would remain but FDIC American Banks would use investment and savings to build our economy and jobs and pay a prime rate plus one or more points based on GDP. This would require some lean economics for a short time but the long term view is as solid as a POLAR BEAR. But like the POLAR BEAR, time is short.

MONOPOLY is not a game for AMERICANS. Act now!
September 24, 2008

The Bush Administration had one agenda. The largest redistribution of wealth in the history of the world. It started with WWI, continued through WWII, meandered through the Federal Reserve, CFR, and Bilderberg for fifty years. The creation of the monster that is deregulation.  These ponzi schemes that has been cultivated over the years by key conspirators.

The conspiracy goes from GHW Bush, Reagan, Clinton, GW Bush, Alan Greenspan, Phil Gramm, and other CEO’s from the bond insurers like MBIA, AMBAC, Assured Guaranty Ltd and Syncora to the mortgagers themselves with the sub-prime teaser rates and no holds bar free money like Countrywide Financial Corp, New Century, Quality Home Loans Inc., Home Banc Corp., American Home Mortgage Investment Corp.

Please review the formulas from the previous meltdowns

http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=106_cong_public_laws&docid=f:publ102.106.pdf

The Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 was passed to protect FDIC holding banks from investing in speculation, investment companies and eliminating the kind of monopoly building we have seen.

The mortgage lenders got the call. Sub-prime baby sub-prime. They weren’t happy with the speculator market. You know the second and third investment income buyers, the rollover crowd who buy and sell and look to turn the properties in a year or less. No they went after the sub-prime folks looking for the American Dream of home ownership. Going after the NINJA market (No Income, No Job or Assets) loans and at a teaser rate ties to an ARM increase to that would be illegal twenty years ago. Then they bundle them into CDO’s and MBS’s and sell them as derivative based securities to Investment firms Like Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch with the BOND INSURERS like MBIA and AMBAC who held AAA rating by Moody’s. Now enter the FED and the taxpayer and we have come full circle. Now the middle class can take on the debt that was due to failures by everyone involved. Massive default and none able to handle the debt. All private companies but these banks control huge pension, 401K, Mutual Funds and IRA’s and this debacle from 1999, literally gave your money managers the deregulation to walk into a casino and put your retirement on the red line on roulette. Not a single one of these clowns would sink their money into it.

The BORROWER, The LENDER,  The INVESTMENT BANKING FIRMS, The BOND INSURERS, The SEC, The CONGRESS and The FED.

The winners are the feeders who collected commissions, rollovers, bonuses and lobby PAC’s. What’s at stake is further massive foreclosures, chapter 11 for other Investment firms, FMAE and FMAC and the Guarantors firms like MBIA and Ambac.

The FED’s rush to get this 3/4 trillion bailout will fund the same formula:

Bear Stearns, Federal Reserve, JPMorgan

(E+F) x (MV+X) x Y = Z. This formula works as Earnings plus Fraud (criminal practices, cooked books, creative accounting) times the inflated Market Value plus X (X is (insider info, Trader inside tipping) times Y (which is the collapse with conspirators getting out with massive gains) = Z (The Zionist Jewish Bankers, Federal Reserve, Wall Street and selected conspirators)

Along with that the larger issue of eliminating competition, redistributing the wealth to a select control group.  JPMorgan, AIG, TRAVELERS(citigroup) UBS (Warburg) and other select Bilderberg monoliths who will control US Markets and then converge with EU conglomerates and the deal is over.

PLEASE REALIZE THIS BAILOUT IS A SCAM. THE SCAM WAS TO ELIMINATE COMPETITION BY COLLAPSING THESE COMPANIES WITH THE AID OF THEIR CEO’s. WE HAVE TO STOP LETTING THEM DESTROY US WITH OUR OWN IGNORANCE AND OUR OWN MONEY!! The FBI has started investigations but I promise you it will not make a rat’s ass. Let your congressman know you do not want the bailout. It’s easy. Just do it!

It is beyond belief to listen to this bloat coming from a Bilderberger. The Rothschiilds iluminati has the audacity to call Obama an elitist. I nearly passed out from the news flash.  This is exactly why Obama is needed in Washington. Israel, CFR, Bilderberger and the rest of the 1% are going to finish the job on America.

You have been warned by the queen herself.

Palin’s Pro-Life agenda for helpless animals
September 16, 2008

Put Palin’s Awful Wolf-Killing Record on Television

As governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin has championed aerial gunning of wolves and bears. Using powerful images of this needless and brutal practice — and the indisputable facts about Palin’s promotion of it — we’ve created a hard-hitting new television ad to educate voters about what Governor Sarah Palin really stands for.

As governor, Sarah Palin…

  • Proposed paying a $150 bounty for the left foreleg of each dead wolf.
  • Approved a $400,000 state-funded propaganda campaign to promote aerial hunting.
  • Introduced legislation to make it even easier to use aircraft to hunt wolves and bears.

IF THIS ISN’T WORTH A $20.00 DONATION, I CAN’T FATHOM ANOTHER BETTER.

Dancing for your life in Israel
September 11, 2008

Another Zionist moment by Jack Handey

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dancer Abdur-Rahim Jackson is seen at the Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008. A performer with the renowned Alvin Ailey dance troupe was ordered to perform steps for Israeli airport security officers to convince them of his identity, a spokesman for the company said Tuesday. Abdur-Rahim Jackson was singled out from other members of the black American dance ensemble when they arrived at Ben-Gurion International Airport on Sunday night at the start of a six-nation international tour, said publicist Shauli Baskin.

ABC NEWS WIRE STORY : http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=5759501

Ike and Alicia….birds of a feather
September 11, 2008

From my Post on May 12th 2008  – Today’s Weather – Gods not Happy https://puddydunne.wordpress.com/2008/05/12/119/

As I stated in May we would be in for a rough Hurricane Season. I predicted 4 storms US landfall, two with 3+ saffir ratings.  Texas- Beaumont landfall for Bush’s benefit and one to cut north over Guantanamo Bay and hit Florida Panhandle. The last one slams Mexico at Merida and Veracruz. Bad karma there.  A major drug distribution point. Edouardo is going to hit Galveston, Beaumont and Port Arthur.

And so it did but now the killer storm (3+) is going to hit the same spot. This was the one I predicted.

Therefore the next major one I predict will hit the Florida panhandle or slam Vera Cruz unless Ike makes a severe course change. I was just inland of Galveston in Clearlake in 1983 when ALICIA (a cat3) hit just north of Galveston. 12 foot surge and winds that took my roof off and deposited a 40 ft.  trimaran in the foyer of the building.

I can say that if they do not evacuate the low areas and clear the bayou channels, flash floods and surge could kill hundreds. I pray the people heed this warning as these storms are not the same as they were in earlier years.

9-11-2008 Return to the crime scene
September 11, 2008

So, once again we remember the fateful day when our government allowed an attack to prelude the illegal invasion of Iraq.  Once again we look to the somber, sentimental, patriotic rhetoric to make us remember why we must kill them all.  I have high expectation from the GOP to run with it in a big way in the remaining days of the 2008 campaign.

The strategy of the Lieberman “Grim Reaper Speech” warning of an imminent strike  and the forecasting of Marvin J. Cetron and others are playing into the hands of the party of fear.  It occurs to me that the terror community would hold off on playing into a McCain win for it would surely be less in their interest to have McCain at the helm with the shoot first and ask later mentality when they could have Obama with diplomacy and repairing our image with the Muslim community. They could also look to garner support for co-operative action against harboring the people that can easily bring the Warmongers wrath upon them as Bush and Cheney did in Iraq.

I often hear the terms ‘going to sleep’ in regards to future threats.  I find the term more appropriate in the use of current administration and GOP plans for the next term, domestically.  As we look to bail out F-MAE and F-MAC, bail out GM ,  bail out all the Corporations whose helmsmen have raided profits and continue to snooze at new economic and energy initiatives, I have one comment. Talk about the BIG SNOOZE.

Will it come to the point that Americans will finally decide to take our chances for real change under the concept that if things come down to a quick death or a slow torturous one, the latter seems a worse fate. What we have to face is the fear not the enemy and convince ourselves that choosing the right course will pay dividends for decades to come versus the continuation of 911 mentalities.

 

 

We can thank Kissinger for Venezuela & Russia
September 10, 2008

The continuing saga of the covert ops and war crimes of Henry Kissinger. We can thank him for the mess we are in today. Thanks to THE NATIONAL SECURITY ARCHIVE from George Washington University for their outstanding work and information through FOIA.

http://www.nsarchive.org

Washington D.C., September 10, 2008 – On the eve of the thirty-fifth anniversary of the military coup in Chile, the National Security Archive today published for the first time formally secret transcripts of Henry Kissinger’s telephone conversations that set in motion a massive U.S. effort to overthrow the newly-elected socialist government of Salvador Allende. “We will not let Chile go down the drain,” Kissinger told CIA director Richard Helms in one phone call. “I am with you,” the September 12, 1970 transcript records Helms responding.

The telephone call transcriptsknown as ‘telcons’

include previously-unreported conversations between Kissinger and President Richard Nixon and Secretary of State William Rogers. Just eight days after Allende’s election, Kissinger informed the president that the State Department had recommended an approach to “see what we can work out [with Allende].” Nixon responded by instructing Kissinger: “Don’t let them do it.”After Nixon spoke directly to Rogers, Kissinger recorded a conversation in which the Secretary of State agreed that “we ought, as you say, to cold-bloodedly decide what to do and then do it,” but warned it should be done “discreetly so that it doesn’t backfire.” Secretary Rogers predicted that “after all we have said about elections, if the first time a Communist wins the U.S. tries to prevent the constitutional process from coming into play we will look very bad.”

The Neo-Conundrum, a two humped camel or serious memory issues?
September 7, 2008

Please watch at your own risk.  For laughter lasting four hours or more, please consult your physician immediately. Just remember to be thankful that the Conservative Right does not have a lock on intelligence.

Wow! Did she really ‘dis’ the community organizers?
September 4, 2008

I think so.

Being an independent is great. I can look critically on both sides and can to some understanding of the true DNA based strands that make you a bleeding heart liberal or a NRA flag waving conservative. I myself am neither. Like so many others I find the common ground that settles upward. You too?

I’d like to start by identifying heroism.

1. Does several non-remarkable flight missions and subsequent POW status make you a hero?

2. Does becoming a community organizer for far less money over law firm partnership and riches associated make you a hero?

I’d have to say that I see heroism as personal sacrifice over self preservation or selfishness. I think Obama qualifies as equal to McCain on that issue. Let’s give both of them the Bronze star.

Does Joe Biden’s record for thirty years of service with so little financial gain and virtually no scandal overshadow Palin’s limited service and some serious possible abuses of power? I am tipping towards Biden.

Did Palin really state that unlike community organizers she had responsibilities. Does the GOP really mean that service first circumvents the thousands who offer community service for little or no pay? Well I think that was indicated last night. If their argument is that they were just making the comparison of running a country to her moose mayoral experience being better experience than organizing, mobilizing and getting specific people the homes, heat and health care they need, then I missed something there.

The statement either way just keeps reinforcing the words of Ron Paul and other ex-Republicans who have said the party has lost it’s way and no longer represents the platform that it was based upon.

Palin also went into the big government and fiscal responsibility.  Where have they been since Clinton’s surplus? Bush has created national debt in unprecedented proportions and he has not reduced government. He simply reduced domestic government and replaced it with additional Defense and Security which works outside this country. So he has left the borders unsecured, eliminated the proper port security, FDA and other critical interior protections and replaced it with defense of global trade to protect the corporatists cronies he deems as the only American interests. Add to this the huge infrastructure of Homeland Security, Blackwater, FEMA who require billions of our tax dollars in order to illegally spy on the taxpayers.

How many times did you hear “We live in a dangerous world?” No shit, Sherlocks. When you operate in clandestine think tanks and conduct covert operations under the radar of the Congress and oversight to procure and prop the cronies in foreign countries who will conduct the most abhorrent human rights abuses for a bottom line mission, you will also develop multiple new group of enemies who know what you are doing. They live the experience of these onslaughts, yet our major media continues to be owned, run and censored for content as to the means and ways.

FEAR-FEAR-FEAR, the basis for speeches by Bush, Giuliani, Lieberman, Palin and everyone else in this RNC convention. As an independent and Libertarian, I say the motto is WE TAKE OUR CHANCES AND TAKE CARE OF AMERICANS. If we butt out and break ties with the Corporatist Global Military Financial Combine, we will have nothing to fear.  Why can’t we sell this to Americans from all sides? Refer to the photo for answer.

I should have had a “Meg Whitman”
September 4, 2008

What John McCain said last night. She has been a director since March 1998, and continues to serve in that capacity. Ms. Whitman joined eBay when it was a small auction website with 30 employees and revenues of more than $4 million. She ranked No. 361 on Forbes’ 2007 list of the richest Americans, with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion. The company now has 15,000 employees globally.

Last September, Whitman switched her party registration from “decline to state” to Republican, according to records in San Mateo County, where she lives. The source close to Whitman said she had made the change so she could vote for Romney in the Feb. 5 Republican primary, which is closed to independents this year.

She did her undergraduate work at Princeton and later earned a master’s degree at Harvard Business School. Among Whitman’s many accolades in recent years, The Wall Street Journal named Whitman one of the 50 women to watch in 2005 and 2006; Fortune consistently ranked her among the top three most powerful women in business; and BusinessWeek included Whitman on its list of the best business managers from 2000 through 2004. Whitman is also one of the few women to have been consecutively ranked (2004 and 2005) among the world’s most influential people by Time Magazine.

The decision for Palin over Whitman is interesting, but not a surprise. It convinces me that McCain will surprise most people with his decisions. I do like the “bucking the consensus” manner he shows often but still he is joined at the hip with Bush and Global Corporate slavery.

BAD NEWS MEETS BAD NEWS
September 3, 2008

Well bad news meets bad news. It has come so untimely the FAMILY VALUES EXPRESS has landed in Minnesota and all we got was a Lieberman grim reaper speech.

Joe Lieberman has shown that war for Israel is more important than all the Democratic issues he supported along with Obama and sided with McCain who opposes these views.

What came out of his mouth was so typical of a warmonger and so transparent in the typical NEO-CON style. FEAR, FEAR, FEAR.

It occurs to me we could have paid the Taliban to stop growing the Opium and given huge cash gifts to Al-Qaeda and spent billions less than this and been safer. The BLACK PLANKTON strikes again as the ANWR issue tops the Bush-McCain agenda along with the NAFTA super highway and NA UNION.

Lieberman, Bristol Palin and George Bush went a long way to remind us of just what the GOP has degraded to. If the Monegan – Wooten debacle wasn’t bad enough to raise the eyebrows, further investigations may raise more inconvenient truths.

These GOP figures always seem to be in situations where abuse of power is cited or questioned. For eight long years we have seen the abuses. Impeachment is pending these abuses and it seems to be a clear distinction that elitist’s think it a birthright to practice these abuses. We look to history and the multitude of Monarchy’s and the Royal Rulers spewing “Off with their heads”

Don’t blame John McCain
September 3, 2008

Don’t blame John McCain for:

TEMPERAMENT – Many of us have volatile emotions and residual anger from childhood. Maybe we did not want to have to go to private, military or Catholic schools. Maybe we were abused at times in our lives. Maybe we were unloved or even degraded or abused.

SINS – Judge not less ye be judged. Let He Who is Without Sin Cast the First Stone. So why would we judge him for his infidelities, womanizing, gambling and drinking habits? We shouldn’t.

MISTAKES – Our mistakes are the important lessons that make us better. Our successes don’t really teach us much. It should teach us humility and gratefulness, but it probably seldom happens.

WEALTH – Experience should have taught us that wealth doesn’t guarantee happiness.  We see the examples all the time. I always refer specifically to lotto winners who have come forward to state that their lives, relationships and well being have been in shambles since winning.

ELITIST-ISM – A product of a lifetime of wealth and privilege without work and/or a lifetime of ego without restraint will lead you to a place far from the reality of the general population and the commonality of the problems of life. 

POLITICS – The very word utters the realm of lies, misinformation and propaganda. Anyone involved in it will succumb to the system to some degree.

AGE – The wisest and most experienced will eventually come to senility, memory issues and poor health

INCARCERATION – It never has shown to me to be a reformer, an epiphany or a positive learning experience for future endeavor.

To blame John McCain for this is irresponsible, hypocritical and mean. What happened to sympathy and understanding? In politics, it is the accepted M.O. that we put forth our worst in the efforts to elect the best. Only in the underworld could we find this kind of irony and continue to parade it through the elections year after year.

No, John McCain is no better qualified to lead this nation than was George W. Bush or most others, but he is qualified to be understood, liked and appreciated.

McCain picks third wife, er… Vice President.
August 29, 2008

Well she may be bold, brave and beautiful but she really does not mix with McC-nile.

  • Unorthodox? No it’s not a ploy for the womens vote (not going to work because she is Pro-life)
  • To recreate the ‘Maverick Image?’. Likely, but (not going to work)
  • We need another Oil/Gas candidate like we need a third armpit. (that’s a fact)
  • McCain has a temper and she’s a woman (whoops)
  • McCains a womanizer (temptation)
  • McCain is a bad gambler (bad for all of us)
  • Next to Connecticut, Alaska is the most corrupt state governments in the union (they don’t rank because they rarely get caught)
  • Some say “risky” but like I said, he is a notoriously bad gambler
  • Palin can talk though, and she’s tough so she was likely picked to show well against VP debates
  • Alaska is another world. I know I have family there. (it’s not mainstreet or mainstream America (bad idea there for the GOP)
  • VP choice has never swayed an election but at McCains age it might and Biden could really impact the voters that fear terrorism, which is the biggest scam ever perpetrated on the world. (bad choice Mr. McCain)
  • Everyone is focused on experience. I don’t get it. Experienced politicians are the ones who have controlled, screwed up and cheated their way to where we find ourselves now. Let’s elect two shoe salesmen. Could it be worse than this crime spree over the last twenty five years?
  • Meg Whitman would have been better. Ebay is better than Alaska and Gas/Oil.
  • If they rig the election again as they did in “00” and “04” then she will be the pick solely to get the ANWR oil for the continuous plot of the Bush Clan to eventually become the ruling elite and royalty of the New Americas or North American Union. (don’t laugh because it is true)

PR Push for Iraq War Preceded Intelligence Findings

“White Paper” Drafted before NIE even Requested

National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 254

Posted – August 22, 2008

For more information contact:
John Prados – (202) 994-7000

Washington D.C., August 22, 2008 – The U.S. intelligence community buckled sooner in 2002 than previously reported to Bush administration pressure for data justifying an invasion of Iraq, according to a documents posting on the Web today by National Security Archive senior fellow John Prados.

The documents suggest that the public relations push for war came before the intelligence analysis, which then conformed to public positions taken by Pentagon and White House officials. For example, a July 2002 draft of the “White Paper” ultimately issued by the CIA in October 2002 actually pre-dated the National Intelligence Estimate that the paper purportedly summarized, but which Congress did not insist on until September 2002.

A similar comparison between a declassified draft and the final version of the British government’s “White Paper” on Iraq weapons of mass destruction adds to evidence that the two nations colluded in the effort to build public support for the invasion of Iraq. Dr. Prados concludes that the new evidence tends to support charges raised by former White House press secretary Scott McClellan and by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in its long-delayed June 2008 “Phase II” report on politicization of intelligence.

 


U.S. Intelligence and Iraq WMD
Compiled and edited by Dr. John Prados
Note: The following documents are in PDF format.

 

On June 5, 2008 the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) released a report examining whether the public statements made by U.S. officials, including President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, and others were consonant with U.S. intelligence information. This report forms part of a second phase of the SSCI’s investigation of Iraq intelligence issues, most especially Saddam Hussein’s possible Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) program, originally approved by the Intelligence Committee in February 2004 but stalled by its Republican majority for several years, until the majority changed with the current 110th Congress. Committee chairman Senator John D. Rockefeller IV (D-WV) then ordered work on this inquiry resumed, and the present report is the result.

The appearance of this long-awaited SSCI “Phase II” report coincided with controversy over the revelations of former White House press secretary Scott McClellan who, in a memoir appearing almost simultaneously, argued that “in the fall of 2002, Bush and his White House were engaging in a carefully orchestrated campaign to shape and manipulate sources of public approval to our advantage.” (Note 1) A review of new evidence along with previously-available documents sheds important new light on this debate. Among the findings:

 

·         The Phase II report on Bush administration public statements, in conjunction with the SSCI’s original July 2004 report on Iraq’s alleged Weapons of Mass Destruction, indicates that political manipulation extended beyond the intelligence itself to affect investigation of the intelligence failures on Iraq as well as the Bush administration’s use of that information.

·         In conjunction with other recently declassified materials, the Phase II report shows that the Bush administration solicited intelligence then used to “substantiate” its public claims.

·         A recently declassified draft of the CIA’s October 2002 white paper on Iraqi WMD programs demonstrates that that paper long pre-dated the compilation of the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraqi capabilities.

·         The timing of the CIA’s draft white paper coincides with a previously available draft of the British Government’s white paper on Iraqi WMD, demonstrating that the Bush administration and the Tony Blair government began acting in concert to build support for an invasion of Iraq two to three months earlier than previously understood.

·         A comparison of the CIA draft white paper with its publicly released edition shows that all the changes made were in the nature of strengthening its charges against Iraq by inserting additional alarming claims, in the manner of an advocacy, or public relations document. The draft and final papers show no evidence of intelligence analysis applied to the information contained. Similar comparison of the British white paper shows the same phenomenon at work.

·         Declassified Pentagon documents demonstrate that the CIA white paper was modified in ways that conformed to the desires of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy and his office, in much the same way that British documents indicate that country’s white paper was changed to conform to the desires of the Blair government.

 

The many official investigations and unofficial investigations carried out, plus the statements and speeches of former CIA officials defending themselves against charges of distortion, have established a few points beyond question. Most important, following Saddam Hussein’s 1998 final expulsion of UN weapons inspectors from Iraq, very little new information fell into the hands of U.S. intelligence. Notable exceptions include data from Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri, recruited as a CIA source (Note 2), and from Iraqi scientists clandestinely approached by the CIA under a covert program. (Note 3) Both these streams of information denied the existence of Iraqi WMD. On the other side were data from Iraqi exile sources that claimed all sorts of WMD and a set of fabricated documents alleging an Iraqi deal to buy uranium ore in Niger. The only concrete “find” was of a shipment of aluminum tubes being imported into Iraq, but analysts were divided over whether these tubes had anything to do with WMD at all. U.S. intelligence largely discounted the (accurate) details from Sabri and the scientists and—despite the CIA’s expressed misgivings—made use of the exile data. This thin data conditioned the intelligence analysis. 

    

There was also a source of intelligence failure that flowed not from bad information but from analytical procedures. American intelligence knew that Saddam had worked through the 1990s to deceive UN weapons inspectors—they assumed he was hiding his WMDs rather than concealing the lack of them. On specific weapons, for example long-range Iraqi missiles, intelligence took a standard accounting approach, and since they could not account for every Iraqi missile, assumed Saddam was hiding a covert force of ballistic missiles. U.S. intelligence was coming off a record of underestimating Iraqi WMD progress in the 1980s and now overcompensated in the other direction. The recent SSCI Phase II report concludes that Bush administration statements, while “substantiated” by the CIA reporting, went beyond that data. The Republican minority on the committee attacked that conclusion. The main defense offered—and repeated by media commentators—is that the root cause of the administration’s Iraq hysteria was intelligence failure, not intent to manipulate the American public. A typical formulation is that of columnist Fred Hiatt in the Washington Post, who argued that “the phony ‘Bush Lied’ story line distracts from the biggest prewar failure: the fact that so much of the intelligence upon which Bush and Rockefeller and everyone else relied turned out to be tragically, catastrophically wrong.” (Note 4)

 

But the question of the role of threat manipulation in the origins of the Iraq war is complex and goes beyond analytical failure. Its center is the degree to which the Iraq intelligence was politicized. Absent the drumbeat for war, even exaggerated estimates of Iraqi WMD prowess would have represented only a standard foreign policy problem. Bush administration intentions made a difference. Both the SSCI Phase I report and that of the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States on Weapons of Mass Destruction (the Silberman-Robb Commission) investigation, though arguing that no politicization had occurred, also cited cases suggesting the opposite. Former national intelligence officer Paul Pillar told an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations that the Silberman-Robb finding did not surprise him for two reasons: because any intelligence analyst would be reluctant to make the damning admission that his paper had been politicized, and because “in my experience, the great majority of cases of actual politicization—successful politicization—are invariably subtle.” (Note 5)

There were several avenues by which the Bush administration made its preferences clear. Vice President Richard Cheney questioned his CIA briefers aggressively, pressing them to the wall when he saw intelligence from other agencies that portrayed a more somber picture than that in CIA’s reporting. He sent briefers back for more information, including in instances when they checked with headquarters and returned with the same word. Cheney was especially acerbic on CIA’s rejection of claims that one of the 9/11 terrorists had met with Iraqi intelligence officers in Prague. On a number of occasions, Cheney sent his chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby, to CIA headquarters to follow up on his concerns. Mr. Cheney went there himself, not just once but on almost a dozen occasions. The practice encouraged the CIA to censor itself, driven, as Pillar put it, by “the desire to avoid the unpleasantness of putting unwelcome assessments on the desks of policymakers.” (Note 6)

A second avenue to influence U.S. intelligence lay through Donald Rumsfeld’s Pentagon. There, William Luti’s Near East and South Asia unit of the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy (OUSDP) was in close touch with the Vice President’s office. Papers circulated back and forth, and both offices utilized claims from Iraqi exiles—claims that Saddam trained terrorists or possessed various WMDs—to press the intelligence agencies for similar information. Under Paul Wolfowitz, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, and the undersecretary for policy, Douglas Feith, the Pentagon formed a special group to review reports on Saddam’s links to Al Qaeda. This unit, the Policy Counterterrorism Evaluation Group (PCTEG) has been represented by Feith as merely charged with assembling a briefing on terrorism, but its real function was to bring additional pressure to bear on the CIA.

 

 

Not all the manipulation was visible. Behind the scenes at the State Department, Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton, also closely allied with the Office of the Vice President, pressured both the State Department and the CIA to fire individuals who refused to clear text in his speeches leveling the most extreme charges against other countries. Although Bolton’s actions did not concern Iraq directly, they came to a high point during the summer of 2002—the exact moment when Iraq intelligence issues were on the front burner—and they aimed at offices which played a central role in producing Iraq intelligence. These included the Bureau of Intelligence and Research at State plus the National Intelligence Council (NIC) and the Weapons Intelligence, Proliferation and Arms Control (WINPAC) center at CIA.  Analysts working on Iraq intelligence could not be blamed for concluding that their own careers might be in jeopardy if they supplied answers other than what the Bush administration wanted to hear.

 

 

Under the circumstances, it is difficult to avoid the impression that the CIA and other intelligence agencies defended themselves against the dangers of attack from the Bush administration through a process of self-censorship. That is the very essence of politicization in intelligence. And the degree to which public statements on Iraq by Cheney, Bush, and others were “substantiated” by the existing intelligence must be viewed through that prism. We shall offer only a few examples here. First is the case of the CIA white paper, “Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Programs.” That document is dated October 2002 [Document 1] and was issued on October 4. It has been represented as a distillation of the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iraq published two days earlier, with the most sensitive, secret information stripped out. Posted here today is the major portion of the text of the same paper in draft [Document 2], as it existed in July 2002. This document demonstrates that the white paper existed long before the NIE was even requested by Congress. In fact the illustrations in the July version are the same as those in the final report. A close comparison of the text shows, further, that much of the argumentation is identical, and that the differences between the two are strictly in the nature of separating text to insert more charges or to sharpen them. The entire product has the character of rhetoric. Little of the text shows the kind of approach characteristic of intelligence analysis. The fact that this document was in preparation at the CIA in July indicates that the Bush administration was actively engaged in a process of building support for war months ahead of the time it has previously been understood to have done so. In fact evidence exists that the CIA white paper was commissioned as early as May 2002. (Note 7) This point is made even sharper by recently declassified Department of Defense documents, including a memorandum from the OUSDP that details the kinds of information seen as desirable to obtain from intelligence in order to strengthen the case for war against Iraq [Document 3]. The timing of this document suggests that this  text was a response to the draft CIA white paper, created at a point when Pentagon critics of CIA reporting were actively pressing their case against the agency’s refusal to accept arguments that Saddam Hussein was allied with Al Qaeda. Changes in the CIA white paper between its July draft and the final document track closely with the OUSDP comments. The net impression is that the CIA white paper was rewritten to conform to administration preferences. If so, U.S. intelligence a priori made itself a tool of a political effort, vitiating the intelligence function and confirming the presence of a politicized process. The specific analytic failures on Iraq intelligence become much less significant in such a climate, especially in that they all yielded intelligence predictions of exactly the kind the Bush administration wanted to hear. This impression is strengthened, and suspicions of collusion broadened, when the record of the British government’s white paper on Iraqi WMD is laid side by side with that of the CIA.  In the course of British official investigations of the antecedents to the war, and the death of physicist David Kelly, a draft of the British white paper was released that is dated June 20 [Document 4]. As in the American case, the Joint Intelligence Committee, which originated this document and plays a role similar to that of the National Intelligence Council in the U.S., modified its draft to issue a final version on September 24, 2002, that was even more somber [Document 5]. There is a considerable record on the Blair government’s efforts to shape the content of the British white paper in directions not supported by the intelligence.

The second example concerns the U.S. government’s use of information drawn from Iraqi exile sources, principally those of the organization known as the Iraqi National Congress (INC) [Document 6]. This anti-Saddam group has had a long and stormy history with the CIA, which actually severed relations with it, an action the Clinton administration’s NSC Deputies Committee approved in December 1996. The agency was later forced to resume ties, and even to fund the group, as a result of the Iraq Liberation Act, which Congress passed in 1998. Proponents of that legislation included many individuals who became senior officials of the Bush administration. The State Department took up funding of the INC. Both State and CIA questioned the value of the intelligence it provided, and State in turn sought to end the relationship. In 2002, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) took over responsibility for the Iraqi exiles. During this period the INC opened channels to the Office of the Vice President as well as Pentagon units responsible to Douglas Feith. In his own account of this period, Feith takes pains to defend the exile group and its leaders. (Note 8)

 

 

In the summer of 2002, the intelligence community compiled a detailed assessment of the material provided by the INC on several subjects and found it to have little current intelligence value, with sourcing and attribution impossible to verify. (Note 9) Despite this, and in spite of the fact that the INC went beyond providing intelligence to using the defectors it brought to the attention of the U.S. government as part of an anti-Saddam publicity campaign, the SSCI report on the group concludes that “false information from the Iraqi National Congress (INC)-affiliated sources was used to support key Intelligence Community Assessments on Iraq and was widely distributed in intelligence products prior to the war” (pp. 113-122). Intelligence agencies also avoided identifying these sources as INC-related in their reporting. Among the defectors was the notorious source “Curveball,” whose false allegations concerning Iraqi mobile biological weapons factories underlay some of the most alarming Bush administration charges against Baghdad. This begs the question why, given distrust of the INC’s information at both the CIA and State Department, and an awareness of these doubts even within the DIA, the data was used at all, much less relied upon. Part of the answer no doubt has to do with the desperation of U.S. intelligence to obtain any information from inside Iraq—in itself a reflection of an intelligence failure. But the other part of the answer most likely flows directly from the prodding of the intelligence community by high levels at the Pentagon and White House for reactions to the defector information. This point stands out in stark relief when contrasted with the fact that the alternate stream of Iraqi insider information—from high-level agent sources and Iraqi scientists—seems to have had no discernable role in U.S. intelligence reporting. That is very arguably politicization.

 

 

Our third example has to do with the charges that Saddam sought to buy uranium ore from the African country of Niger. As widely reported, this affair involved fabricated documents, a Bush administration effort to discredit the U.S. envoy sent to check on the report by outing his wife, a CIA undercover officer; and ultimately, the criminal trial of Vice President Cheney’s top national security aide; but those matters are not of concern now. What is disturbing here, in the context of politicization of the intelligence, is the specific treatment the CIA gave to the information it developed. The record is established by the SSCI Phase I report, the Silberman-Robb report, and the proceedings of the trial of “Scooter” Libby, Mr. Cheney’s national security assistant. (Note 10On February 13, 2002 Vice President Cheney asked his CIA briefer about reports that Iraq was procuring uranium in Niger [Document 7]. Cheney represented the information as having come from the DIA, which indeed had issued an “executive highlight” on February 12. If this was in actuality what Cheney saw, the DIA was basing its account on information provided by Italian military intelligence, already aware of the fabricated Nigerien documents that later became the heart of this affair. The CIA had reported the same information a week earlier. The briefer promised to check, and the CIA’s WINPAC center prepared a note which observed that the foreign information on which the claim was based was only single-source and lacked crucial detail [Document 8]. The agency subsequently set up a trip to Niger by retired Ambassador Joseph V. Wilson IV, who returned with the conclusion that there was no substance to these claims. Wilson arrived in Niger on February 26 and returned on March 4. Just as Wilson came home, Vice President Cheney renewed his inquiry into the Niger allegation, and WINPAC responded by noting that the foreign intelligence service had no new information, that the Nigerien government insisted it was making all efforts to ensure that its uranium was used only for peaceful purposes, and that CIA was about to debrief “a source who may have information related to the alleged sale.”  Ambassador Wilson was in fact debriefed by two CIA officers on March 5. The way this was handled is what raises questions. Wilson’s data was recorded by the officers and written up by a reports officer who, according to the SSCI, “added additional relevant information from his notes.”  The declassified text of this March 8, 2002, report [Document 9] shows that CIA Headquarters added the comment that the officials who provided information to Wilson “may have intended to influence as well as inform.” The ambassador himself was described as “a contact with excellent access who does not have an established reporting record.” However, Wilson had in fact carried out a mission on behalf of CIA previously, and he had been the senior U.S. envoy in Baghdad (the deputy chief of mission) before the first Gulf War. Therefore, Wilson did have an established reporting record. The comment regarding the Nigerien officials was gratuitous. The combination of these remarks cast doubt within the U.S. government on the information. The report on Wilson’s information was then circulated in routine channels but never given to the Vice President. Director George Tenet’s comment: “This unremarkable report was disseminated, but because it produced no solid answers, there wasn’t any urgency to brief its results to senior officials such as the vice president.” (Note 11) But a look at the trip report we post here shows Wilson’s information was in fact quite solid. It simply does not say the uranium charge was real. Tenet has a secondary defense that the report was completed just after Vice President Cheney left on a trip to drum up support for war with Iraq, and that when he returned other matters seemed more pressing. Yet Cheney had renewed his inquiry into the Niger claim and surely its refutation had an impact on the arguments he had just made to encourage support for an American military option.These points drive the conclusion that the CIA was loathe to confront Mr. Cheney with a direct refutation of the Niger uranium claim. This too smacks of politicization.  Wilson’s was only one of a number of streams of reporting that undermined the Niger story, including an investigation by French intelligence and inquiries from the current U.S. ambassador and a senior U.S. military officer. Likely based on these materials and on the embassy cables reporting on Wilson from Niger, State Department intelligence filed a report doubting the claims of a Nigerien sale to Iraq [Document 10], and filed a dissent when the claim was included in the 2002 National Intelligence Estimate. But the developments of early 2002 became only the beginning of a highly ambivalent treatment of the uranium claim. On the one hand, the CIA intervened to keep this material out of the major speech President Bush gave in Cincinnati in October 2002, and also objected when British intelligence included it in their own white paper about the Iraqi threat. On the other hand, senior CIA officials mentioned the uranium claim in congressional testimony at the same time, permitted it to be included in a December 2002 “fact sheet” on Iraq, and mounted only tepid opposition to inclusion of the charge in President Bush’s 2003 State of the Union Address, where it would become notorious as the “16 Words.”

 

 

The SSCI later investigated the Iraq intelligence in detail, reporting on it in 2004.  This was followed by the Silberman-Robb commission account.  The SSCI Phase II report on the use of that intelligence [Document 11] examines Bush administration public statements regarding Iraqi weapons of mass destruction plus certain other topics related to war in Iraq against the inventory of intelligence reports circulated within the U.S. government. The idea was to determine whether administration claims were supported by the available intelligence. The “public statements” were winnowed down to a few, essentially the speech by Vice President Cheney in Nashville on August 26, 2002, those by President Bush to the United Nations General Assembly, in Cincinnati, and before the U.S. Congress at the 2003 State of the Union address (September 12 and October 7, 2002, and January 29, 2003), and the presentation to the United Nations Security Council by Secretary of State Powell (February 5, 2003). The subjects covered include nuclear weapons, biological weapons, chemical weapons, weapons of mass destruction generally, delivery systems, the Saddam Hussein regime’s alleged links to terrorists, Iraqi regime intent, and predictions for post-war Iraq.   In most of these cases the SSCI study found administration claims “substantiated” by the available intelligence but portraying the data as more certain than it was, thus going beyond the intelligence, while failing to convey disagreements among intelligence experts. The Committee found claims regarding Saddam’s intentions were contradicted by the intelligence (p. 82) and those about a rosy post-Saddam future as not reflecting intelligence concerns (p. 88). In the case of Bush administration claims about links between Saddam and terrorists the report reached several conclusions, judging that the intelligence substantiated general claims of Iraqi knowledge of and support for terrorist activities, but that claims of an Iraqi-terrorist alliance or of Iraqi training of terrorists were not backed up by the intelligence reporting (p. 71-2). In general Bush administration claims asserted greater certainty than existed in CIA reports.

 

This analysis was assailed by Republican members even before the SSCI report appeared. In minority statements attached to the eventual primary document (pp. 100-170) they detailed their objections. The minority charges that the investigation improperly confined itself to comparisons with finished intelligence products rather than the wider range of material actually available to top officials, and that it did not make similar assessments of the statements made by Democratic Party politicians, including Senator Rockefeller himself. Republican members and staff were not permitted to be involved in the drafting work on the report and the numerous amendments they offered were rejected.

The question of whether the “Iraqi threat” resulted from manipulation, as Scott McClellan and the SSCI majority suggest, or simple intelligence failure, as in the view of the Committee minority, is a key issue for all concerned. A real intelligence failure did occur. This is plain from the Intelligence Committee’s 2004 “Phase I” report as well as that of the Silberman-Robb Commission. (Note 12) The present author argued as much even before those studies appeared. (Note 13) The CIA director of that time, George Tenet, concedes, “In many ways, we were prisoners of our own history.” (Note 14) Retired CIA analyst Melvin A. Goodman, observing this analytical effort from the outside, concludes, “The U.S. rush to war against Iraq marked the worst intelligence scandal in the history of the United States.” (Note 15) But intelligence failure was abetted and magnified by the Bush administration’s drive to use charges about alleged Iraqi WMDs as justification for war.

 

Ascertaining the truth in this matter does not seem to have been as important as seeming to do so, at least for the Senate Intelligence Committee. A review of the minority statements contained in the new SSCI report in comparison to similar ones in the Phase I report—by the then-Democratic minority [Document 12]—reveals identical complaints regarding the conduct of the investigation. The present Republican minority’s charge that the report errs on politicization because both the Phase I SSCI and Silberman-Robb Commission concluded there was no evidence of this flies in the face of the strong assertions by the Democratic minority during Phase I that allegations of this type had not been taken seriously. Current Republican charges that the report erred by failing to check the public statements of Democrats against the intelligence are a red herring: they effectively rely upon the Bush administration’s success at hoodwinking political opponents and then take those opponents’ statements as authoritative evidence, an example of reverse logic. The SSCI staff rules which the Republican minority now says were used to shut it out of the investigation are the same ones a Republican majority previously relied upon to limit Democrats’ influence on the scope and content of the inquiry.

 

 

The preparation of white papers on both the United States and British sides also needs to be taken into account. That Bush and Blair each turned to their intelligence agencies for the papers is significant—they were evoking the imprimatur of secret intelligence to justify policy preferences. Both papers had the function of justification, not analysis, and neither government waited until it had compiled all the evidence before demanding these products. Neither government asked for intelligence estimates, fashioned in secret, in order to inform policy on Iraq. Instead, both Bush and Blair did want their intelligence agencies to carry out avowed political agendas. And the timing of the white paper drafts—now established as being in the summer of 2002, before there ever was a UN debate or a Security Council resolution—clearly indicates their true function. The accumulating weight of evidence currently supports the interpretation Scott McClellan gives, not that supplied by apologists for the Iraq war.

Will Bush and Cheney get their cold war?
August 24, 2008

  • Question 1:  Will the Bush and Cheney plankton party get their cold war before being ousted?
  • Question 2:  Will Congress and American people get these criminals before they disappear?
  • Question 3:  Can Biden take the initiative to pursue the evidence and will Obama give him the power to do so?
  • Question 4:  Do they have the sense to see the critical importance of detente and repairing the foreign policy that has been decimated by Global Corporatist’s and the IMC?
  • Question 5:  Does the obvious need for two presidents to repair the damage and the decision for Obama to work domestic agenda and Biden the foreign policy agenda click with their plans?

Why would the average American presume that a lame duck administration who has catered to corporate interests and profits while getting us into an unnecessary and overpriced war would not want to leave with an additional conflict or cold war. A final snub of ‘doing the right thing’ and the final payment of an eight year contract to feather his nest.

This re-emergence of the soviet type response should come as no surprise considering the huge intervention by the Bush administration into every aspect of domestic and foreign operations. Never in Soviet history has there been the kind of big brother snooping, spying, collaboration between corporate, Military and so-called intelligentsia that the US Government undertook in 2000.

Does the Obama-Biden ticket come with a voucher for transparency? And with that voucher,does it include no get out of jail free card? I think that the immunity bill should be overturned under the same signing statements and EO’s that Bush and Cheney used to set up these unconstitutional programs in which they could control the reckless and illegal agenda they had planned well before the election.

Good cop, bad cop would be alright by me. Let the Biden Bulldog loose and give him all the tools they had and use them to bring them to justice, sending a clear message to the next group of treasonous globalists who think we are pushovers.  This tandem could prove to be a turning point for the US in a historical diversion from business as usual and a precedent for changing Washington politics to something we can support.

HOW DOES BIDEN RATE?
August 23, 2008

PERSONAL

  • From working class family- good
  • Catholic upbringing-good
  • Work ethic – excellent
  • Married and three children-good
  • Lost wife and daughter in car accident-dealing with tragedy
  • He was sworn in to Congress at the bedside of his injured sons-commitment
  • Deadly brain aneurysms requiring surgery – near death experience

CAREER

  • Law degree from Syracuse University
  • Passed Delaware Bar
  • Became fifth youngest Senator ever elected to Congress
  • Work ethic – excellent
  • Senate Judiciary work – excellent
  • Senate Foreign Relations Committee – very good

REASONING

  • Biden is one of the poorest Senators historically – He’s in nobodys pocket. *****
  • The Bush administration rejected an effort Biden undertook with Senator Richard Lugar to pass a resolution authorizing military action only after the exhaustion of diplomatic efforts. *****
  • He has long supported the appropriations to pay for the occupation, but has argued repeatedly that more soldiers are needed, the war should be internationalized, and the Bush administration should “level with the American people” about the cost and length of the conflict which they estimated at 60 billion. The internationalized effort was not distributed fairly. ****
  • Since the second term of Bush, Biden has voted consistently against FISA, Immunity, Torture, detainee treatment and has championed the rule of law and habeas corpus.*****
  • He worked hard to keep the Supreme Courts nominees damage down to a minimum with a success against Robert Bork, but came up short with Clarence Thomas. *****
  • Children issues and drugs play a large role in his efforts and family values record is superb. *****
  • If he had remained in the Judiciary, it is certain he would have been going after Bush on signing statements, EO’s, Civil liberty violations and the attorney firings.

My hope is he gets the chance as VP to retroactively review the criminal acts of the Bush admin. in regards to war funding, no bid contracts, violations of civil liberty/Geneva Convention, Corporate crime and Homeland/FEMA.  His weakness may be in immigration.
