Texas Terror, Code Blue!

Diagnosing the Disease

HOUSTON, June 29 When it comes to explaining our deteriorating national and international condition, hand it to Dr. Ron Paul, the libertarian Republican who represents several refinery towns just south of Houston, Texas.
He proved his skill Thursday with his address to the House of Representatives, five minutes of straight talk from a wise physician concerned about politics and geopolitics:

  • The economy is sluggish because it has gorged on inflated Iraq war money.
  • The petroleum market is feverish because of Iran war speculation.
  • The Iran war is likely because of the inaction of a craven Congress.

This was a perfect example of Ron Paul the revolutionary, who is willing to tell the truth1 about our modern-day King George.
This latest speech reminds me of a two-minute speech, which Paul delivered on January 11, 2007, at the beginning of the 110th Congress. In it Paul warned 2 that the Bush administration might stage an attack against the US, then blame it on Iran.
Recent events bear out Paul’s worries:

SHOCKING REVELATION: U.S. POWS STILL IN LAOS

AFP & others have said it for years; now proof emerges U.S. soldiers still held in Southeast Asian camps

rss202

By Christopher J. Petherick

There is new evidence that American GIs are being held against their will in Southeast Asia more than three decades after the Vietnam War officially ended. A letter recently received by the father of a U.S. pilot, who went missing in action in 1971, could provide a key piece of information that proves American prisoners of war are alive and imprisoned in remote areas of South Vietnam.

Olbermann-O’Reilly feud spreads
variety.com ^ | 6/27/08 | By BRIAN LOWRY

Posted on Saturday, June 28, 2008 11:32:12 PM by paltz

After recapping the five-year-old Keith Olbermann-Bill O’Reilly feud that has spilled over to other assets of their respective employers GE and News Corp., the gossip site Gawker cheerily noted: “The real winners, as always: us!”

Indeed, anyone with a taste for mud wrestling or a pissing match has to enjoy the back-and-forth that has sprung from MSNBC host Olbermann’s fateful decision to “punch up” at O’Reilly, Fox News’ top-rated personality and his time-period rival. As for whether viewers or something so quaint as journalistic standards are “winning” in the eye-poking Three Stooges act that has ensued — maybe not so much.

The convoluted affair has begun to resemble “Weapons of Mass Distraction,” an HBO satire written by Larry Gelbart, in which two dueling media moguls bring their various holdings to bear in an escalating war to ruin each other. Yet what passed for satirical farce in 1997 seems almost restrained by comparison now.

For those who have somehow ignored this food fight, Olbermann started it by regularly jabbing at O’Reilly and naming him the “Worst Person in the World,” a nightly segment on his MSNBC talker.

Thin-skinned in his best days, O’Reilly has grown especially sensitive to criticism (or as he’s prone to call it, “vicious personal attacks,” emanating from “vile left-wing smear sites”) since the embarrassment of having a sexual-harassment suit filed against him in 2004. That irritation has rather transparently led him to retaliate against NBC higher-ups, including NBC News and even parent General Electric, going so far as to have a producer ambush GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, stretching to accuse him of shady dealings with Iran and, this week, of personally despoiling the Hudson River.

Gunny G: Now Grok This!

Grok? What the hell is grok?
In today’s vernacular, grok means simply and basically, to understand or “get it” — do you get it now?

Do you get it? was a slang term of the pre-WWII movies, etc. Now in 2008 it has again become a popular buzzword with the younger crowd and also those older dinosaurs who remember it from earlier times. Getting it was again resurrected during the 1970s with the est seminars (see below), though not in exactly the same way as previously.

So we all know, or think we know, the meaning of getting it, but grok means a bit more than what we usually think of as just getting it, so for a more thorough meaning of grok one must refer to Stranger In A Strange Land….

The Bush/McCain gas price escalation is an Enron rerun. It is Chapter 2 of the scam Bush crony “Kenny Boy” Lay used in 1999-2001 to steal $100 billion from California ratepayers.

Now this administration is replicating that crisis to funnel untold billions into the coffers of its oil baron backers . . . and to push the failed strategies of offshore drilling and nuke power.

My name is Edgar J. Steele.

Even the most ardent of Barack Obama’s supporters generally will confess to a small, nagging (dare I say niggling?) doubt about the object of their ardor.

Similarly, even Obama’s most vocal opposition stops and stares just a bit overlong when they see him speaking.

What an odd situation.

Obama Nation or Abomination?

I recall the JFK era and, while Obama is no JFK – not by a far stretch, I might add – some similarities do exist, similarities that have more to do with grace and appearance than with character and substance.  Put your prejudices aside and admit it:  Not only is Barack Obama rather handsome, he moves and speaks with a natural grace unseen on the national stage in quite some time.

Pay just a little attention, however, and it becomes clear that Obama never really says anything.  That is no mistake and it is not because he has nothing to say, either.  He knows exactly what he is doing, rest assured.  Obama puts the smoke with the mirrors of Jerry Brown’s classic observation about politics:  “A little vagueness goes a long way in this business.”

PROUD PAGAN WITCH BACKS OBAMA’S POVERTY BILL

While Senator Barack Obama struggles to keep the public in the dark about the nature of his pro-U.N. Global Poverty Act, a recent “Bay Area Interfaith Leaders’ Luncheon” was held to lobby for Senate passage of the bill, whose cost has been estimated at $845 billion. An actual witch who spoke at a “Pagan Pride” festival in San Francisco was one of the listed participants.

The witch, known as the “Elder Donald Frew” of the “Wiccan Community,” was interviewed by the Reverend Don Lewis of “Witch School International” for a “reality” show called “Magick TV” and is shown talking about his involvement in the United Nations-backed United Religions Initiative.

Does Michelle Obama remind you more of Teresa Heinz Kerry or former First Lady Hillary Clinton? Read on and decide for yourself.

As we recall, First Lady wannabe Teresa had a habit of shooting first and aiming second. Remember when she wondered out loud whether Laura Bush “ever had a real job”? And the time she cut off a reporter’s questions with the rebuke, “Now shove it.”?

Likewise, Mrs. O has a penchant for freely speaking her mind on almost any topic.

Speaking to CBS reporter Steve Kroft, Michelle commented, “As a Black man, Barack can be shot just going to a gas station.” (Note to would-be gunslingers: Next time you see a white woman at the gas station, try to hold your fire.)

EXTREME ENVIRONMENTALISM IS DESTROYING EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH

June 27, 2008 Leave a comment

By Dr. Laurie Roth
June 27, 2008

NewsWithViews.com

There is a Religion that has been growing in stature over the last decade. Now it is becoming one of the most powerful, well funded and organized Religions ever. It is the Religion of “environmentalism” and worship of animals and nature. In this Religion people are in the way and way down the totem pole of worth next to animals and nature. The organizations and people behind this have unlimited amounts of money, both foreign and domestic. Their goal is to control land, people and the world, having ultimate, global power and money. If you look at The Earth Charter you get the idea. They use all sorts of manipulative language hoping you don’t notice it is the worship of animals and nature with you and I being the unpardonable sin. We are the endless cause of carbon emissions and problems.

If you think I’ve waxed a little insane and conspiratorial, why are we seeing the environmentalists cramming bills and laws into place at the state and federal level, trying to seize millions of acres of property all across this country? You may not have followed or tracked just how many areas across the U.S. are being studied to turn into national parks and wetland areas. Right now there is a study group looking at turning the entire Mississippi river into a national park. Translation, that would mean seizing, hundreds of thousands of acres all around the river that would have to be morphed into wet land areas. Goodbye farm lands and major food sources for America. Now the farmers, land and business owners would be controlled, regulated and go through permit hell before they could do things with their property, water crops and act like normal farmers.

I interviewed Chuck Cushman, director of Landrights.org last night and asked him how the environmentalists position and manipulate their land grabs. He said they first circle a big chunk of land, like the Y to Y corridor (Yukon To Yellowstone Land Grab) use the excuses in congress of “clean water” “preserving national treasures and wetlands” nature and certain animals. Once the take over happens, farms and businesses within the mapped area notice the new regulations and permit process that is unfolded to do any normal thing with the land. Roads here and there begin to be closed because they are compromising to animal life or plant life. At this stage you see businesses and farms starting to perish due to traffic diminishing and regulations and permits overwhelming the people. Hark, the good news is that the Bruno snail and trees are happy.

Allow me to share with you a few of the many land grabs that have been or are in the works now. S 2739 Omnibus Parks Bill, Rim of the Valley, HR 2421 Clean Water Act (Wetlands), S 1870 Senate Wetlands, HR 3287, HR 2593 Grijalva Border Wilderness, Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) Yukon To Yellowstone Land Grab, Bouquot Canyon Fire Threat. In addition, there is a current study group looking at turning in the entire Mississippi river into a national park.

These land grab attempts are unconstitutional and don’t reflect the original purpose in our constitution for using eminent domain for a city to finish a highway or stop blight in an area. As you may recall in the Kelo v.s. New London decision in the Supreme Court, they ruled that even a major corporation can trump the rights of the small business and homeowners. The City and big corporation won because the city would make more money and tax revenue with the big corporation developing the area. Since then many states have limited the use of eminent domain.

NOT TO OFFEND LESBIANS AND SINGLE MOTHERS, FATHER’S DAY BANNED IN SCOTTISH SCHOOLS

Following the recent law in Britain prohibiting the use of the words mom (‘mum’) and dad in public schools, the politically-correct forces in Europe once again succeeded — this time having fathers removed from their children’s classrooms.

According to reports coming out of Edinburgh, Scotland, children in public schools are prohibited from making Father’s Day cards and related gifts as was customary in the past.

The rationale given by school administrators for their action is their wish to avoid embarrassing school children who live with single mothers or lesbian partners. According to conservative political strategist Michael Baker, who for years predicted such political-correctness, this new school policy was secretly adopted by the public school system without the input of students’ parents.

The trend is called the Gratitude Campaign and it all starts with a hand signal that you can do anytime you see a soldier in uniform. The signal is a new way to thank soldiers for their service without having to interrupt them or make them feel uncomfortable.

What is HAARP? – three short articles

HAARP FACT SHEET

“HAARP”, an acronym for “High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program”, is a project having the goal of studying fundamental physical principles which govern the region of the earth’s atmosphere known as the ionosphere. It is through this region that earth-based communications and radar transmissions must travel to reach satellites or to probe solar and planetary bodies; and conversely, for radio signals from outside the immediate environment of the earth to reach its surface. It also is from these ionized layers that radio waves reflect to achieve over-the-horizon communication and radar systems. The proposed research will be undertaken using high power radio transmitters to probe the overhead ionosphere, combined with a complement of modern scientific diagnostic instruments to investigate the results of the interactions.

The Second World War in Italy: was it worth it?

The Second World War in Italy: was it worth it?

The folly and brutality of war, from Sicily to the Po Valley

During the Italian campaign in the Second World War the Allied forces lost over 300,000 men, the Germans perhaps half a million. Probably over a million Italians were killed or wounded, to say nothing of the destruction inflicted on virtually every town and village between Sicily and the Po Valley.

No battlefield could have been worse chosen. For nearly two years the Allied armies had to fight for mountain after mountain, hill after hill, in a theatre that might have been specifically designed for defensive war. The decision to invade the Italian mainland was taken at only six weeks’ notice, and had to be carried out by armies neither equipped nor trained for the mountain warfare that lay ahead of them. Likewise, the decision to defend the peninsula was made only after the campaign had begun, when the German commander on the spot, Albert Kesselring, persuaded Hitler to abandon the original intention to pull back to the Apennines and allow him to defend the mountains south of Rome. The result was two years of fighting in a theatre at best secondary, and one in which the Allies always found themselves at a disadvantage. Was it worth it?

Who’s Planning Our Next War? by Patrick J. Buchanan

DIGG THIS

Of the Axis-of-Evil nations named in his State of the Union in 2002, President Bush has often said, “The United States will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.”

He failed with North Korea. Will he accept failure in Iran, though there is no hard evidence Iran has an active nuclear weapons program?

William Kristol of The Weekly Standard said Sunday a U.S. attack on Iran after the election is more likely should Barack Obama win. Presumably, Bush would trust John McCain to keep Iran nuclear free.

Yet, to start a third war in the Middle East against a nation three times as large as Iraq, and leave it to a new president to fight, would be a daylight hijacking of the congressional war power and a criminally irresponsible act. For Congress alone has the power to authorize war.

Yet Israel is even today pushing Bush into a pre-emptive war with a naked threat to attack Iran itself should Bush refuse the cup.

‘Ma Deuce’ Days May be Numbered
Norman Polmar | June 17, 2008

Probably the longest serving weapon in the U.S. military arsenal is the Browning .50-caliber M2 machine gun. Often referred to as “ma deuce” for its M2 designation, the weapon entered U.S. service at the end of World War I, being scaled up from the Browning .30-caliber M1917 machine gun. The .50-caliber weapon was initially designated M1921.

Using a round designed by Winchester, the .50-caliber machine gun was originally intended for ground troops to use against enemy troops. Subsequently, it was employed as an anti-aircraft weapon and then became the standard armament of U.S. warplanes. In 1932, the design was updated and redesignated M2.

Senator Ted Kennedy is putting forward a brave face following his recent surgery but the sad reality remains. Even with successful surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy treatment, gliomas — a highly aggressive form of brain cancer that strikes approximately 10,000 Americans annually — tragically claim the lives of 75 percent of its victims within two years and virtually all within five years.

But what if there was an alternative treatment for gliomas that could selectively target the cancer while leaving healthy cells intact? And what if federal bureaucrats were aware of this treatment, but deliberately withheld this information from the public?

Sadly, the questions posed above are not entirely hypothetical. Let me explain.

Judicial murder and government dirty linen–Part One
by Al Benson, Jr.

After the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, eight people were put on trial and found guilty–four sentenced to long prison terms and the other four sentenced to hang. One of those sentenced to hang was Mary Eugenia Jenkins Surratt, the first woman ever to be hung by the United States. John Wilkes Booth had supposedly been shot and John Surratt had escaped to Canada, eventually to make it all the way to Europe. These eight were seemingly all that were left and the government wanted to make sure they talked as little as possible to anyone.

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.
~ Thomas Pynchon

As I write these words, we are into the third day of a seemingly endless period of mourning for Tim Russert. While he seemed to be a likable fellow – in a conventional sort of way – and I can sympathize with his family, friends, and colleagues over his loss, there is something telling about the state of journalism in this country in the way his death is being transformed into a national tragedy. Here in Hollywood, the demise of even the most prominent of the prominent stars does not merit the media’s nonstop observance such as we are witnessing not only from Mr. Russert’s network, but from others as well.

This endless electronic eulogy brings to mind the classic observation of Marshall McLuhan: “the medium is the message.” A centrally-directed, vertically-structured society requires a uniformity of thought in order to maintain a collective commitment. This requires a continuing indoctrination in the values and purposes of the ruling establishment. Government schools exist for the primary purpose of conditioning young minds in such a viewpoint, a function acknowledged by the Los Angeles County government when it declared that children need to be taught “that we are all part of one big social system” and “must learn to participate effectively in the system.” H.L. Mencken was more to the point, as usual, when he wrote that the purpose of schools is:

to manufacture an endless corps of sound Americans. A sound American is simply one who has put out of his mind all doubts and questionings, and who accepts instantly, and as incontrovertible gospel, the whole body of official doctrine of his day, whatever it may be and no matter how often it may change.

ALLEN: MARINE EXPEDITIONARY SKILLS HAVE ‘ATROPHIED’ IN RECENT YEARS

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA — The Marine Corps’ ability to remain a top-notch expeditionary force has been in decline recently due to an overarching focus on counterinsurgency missions — a problem that will need to be addressed soon, according to a two-star general.

“The truth is, the Corps remains the nation’s premier expeditionary combined arms force . . . focused on amphibious forcible-entry capabilities,” said Maj. Gen. John Allen, deputy commanding general of II Marine Expeditionary Force based at Camp Lejeune, NC, in a June 17 presentation here at the 2008 Joint Warfighting conference. “Those competencies, these skills, have atrophied in the past few years.”

Obama Was Selected, Not Elected

Words mean nothing to liberals. They say whatever will help advance their cause at the moment, switch talking points in a heartbeat, and then act indignant if anyone uses the exact same argument they were using five minutes ago.

When Gore won the popular vote in the 2000 election by half a percentage point, but lost the Electoral College — or, for short, “the constitutionally prescribed method for choosing presidents” — anyone who denied the sacred importance of the popular vote was either an idiot or a dangerous partisan.

But now Hillary has won the popular vote in a Democratic primary, while Obambi has won under the rules. In a spectacular turnabout, media commentators are heaping sarcasm on our plucky Hillary for imagining the “popular vote” has any relevance whatsoever.

During his acceptance speech, the Constitution Party nominee for President, Charles Baldwin, observed that unless the loss of US sovereignty is stopped, efforts of Americans and Constitution Party members to preserve our freedoms and rights in the Bill of Rights and US Constitution would become moot.

In May 2008 I wrote a letter to Charles Baldwin explaining that one of the major tools being used to destroy US sovereignty is the “economic jihad” being waged against America by many Muslim and Communist nations, some members of the EU, and world government groups including the CFR, the Club of Rome and the Trilateral Commission. This economic jihad is being knowingly aided and abetted inside the US by President GW Bush and some Republican and Democratic members of Congress including Senators Barbara Boxer, John Warner and Joe Lieberman as well as Presidential contenders and Senators Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain.

“I will say this, however. I was, frankly, surprised would be a mild word, to say that anyone that would suggest that the Attorney General should resign because some religious fanatics murdered themselves. (Applause.)” Bill Clinton, April 20, 1993; remarks on WACO

It’s been over two months since the raid on the FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) property known as the Yearning for Zion Ranch. Immediately, the intellectually lazy zombies who work in the controlled “mainstream media” swooped down on the area and the circus went into full swing. According to irresponsible anchors across the board on cable networks, over 400 children were rescued from rapists and child molesters. It didn’t take long to see the interviews of people in cafes around Texas parrot the same statements. I know because I watched an elderly couple being interviewed. The man said the FLDS devils were all rapists and should be jailed. It might have shocked this fellow to know that many of the married couples only have one spouse and don’t want another one.

Minneapolis: Barack Obama supporter John Nichols brought “media reform” activists to their feet on Thursday night with wild and strident attacks on the Bush Administration. “George Bush was not elected,” said Nichols, working himself into a frenzy.

Nichols is the Washington correspondent for The Nation magazine and a member of the board of the Free Press, the official sponsor of the National Conference for Media Reform.

Bush and his vice president, Dick Cheney, “seized” power and launched an “illegal and immoral war,” Nichols continued.

WE ARE SURROUNDED BY A SEA OF ENEMIES

We are surrounded by a sea of enemies that threaten to destroy us. Just who are they and how do we fight them and survive? First of all, we have seen over years and decades now, Islamic radicals wanting to take out the infidels, Jews and Christians and take over country after country. We have seen their gains, conquering and imperialist spirit throughout the Middle East, Europe, Indonesia and the Philippines. Let us not forget their manipulative gains with assuming “rights” and “speech” laws in Canada, thus manipulating Sharia law courts and action into the mainstream. They are dong the same with some success in the U.S. by manipulating our courts, school curriculum, getting voted into office, suing, threatening and intimidating those who dare to notice strange or dangerous looking behavior and accusing any others questioning anti American behavior as mentally ill…i.e. Islamaphobia. Don’t you dare notice the large, undercover investigation recently by members of the military, FBI and CIA that found that 3 out of 4 Mosques and Islamic centers are preaching and teaching anti Americanism and promoting sharia law and jihad. Is this a religion of peace trying to just hang out in our country and assimilate?

Now, we look at the very “Christian” Presidential nominee who has won over Hillary, who declared boldly that he is a Christian and not an Islamic, yet he is supported by CAIR, has hung out with anti-Semitic fund raisers, one who brought Ahmadinejd over to speak in our country, attended Islamic schools with a Dad and Step Dad who were Islamics. Never mind that Hamas and other terrorist anti Israel groups are thrilled Obama is running for office and his very Christian stance on life shows a voting record supporting pro abortion, partial birth abortion, gay marriage, globalism and your basic garden variety socialism. Then of course there is the small detail none of us are to observe because it again is considered Islamaphobia and hate. That would be that Muslims are taught that lying to Infidels, you and moi is not a sin and frankly expected by Muhammad. How come Mr. Christian, Obama has hung around and been so in support of the Islamic causes of Rep. Ellison, our Muslim congressman. He has strangely run to Ellison like a magnet instead of a colleague trying to maintain balance and a sense of service for all.

Remember, regarding this first, huge threat that Islamic fundamentalists have a vividly clear goal to take over the world and they are clear and patient about strategy. They will use every naïve loophole and “IN” they can find. We must wake up to this manipulative and determined threat living right in our midst. As we continue spend billions to fight the Islamic threat overseas, they continue to organize and gain ground inside our country.

DECEPTION! SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

It will be all over the radio talk and television shows for days to come. It’s being written about on blogs and websites and in the mainline press. Yes, it’s all about former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan’s book. He writes about the deception in the George W. Bush White House, but I ask, “So, what else is new?” Old snaggle-toothed Satan invented deception in the Garden of Eden, and Adam, would you believe, blamed the woman? Deception and blame have been around forever. (Rev. 12:7-9)

McClellan’s book What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception has critics on both sides and all have come out swinging, lying and covering for their political friends. While some people are selling blood to buy gas, with the exception of a rare few, we have nearly all dipsticks in Washington, D.C.

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda

It takes a lot to shock me anymore, but indeed, shock is what registered when I listened to talk show host, Michael Reagan, blast these words during the second hour of his show, June 10, 2008:

Partial transcript of Reagan’s statements which can be heard here (3:12 minutes):

“Excuse me folks, I’m going to say this. We ought to find the people who are doing this, take them out and shoot them. Really. You take them out, they are traitors to this country, and shoot them. You have a problem with that? Deal with it. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that’s what they are, and you shoot them dead. I’ll pay for the bullets. ”Reagan adds, “How about you take Mark Dice out and put him in the middle of a firing range. Tie him to a post, don’t blindfold him, let it rip and have some fun with Mark Dice.”

The Marxist roots of the global warming scare

The late Natalie Grant Wraga once wrote, “Protection of the environment has become the principal tool for attack against the West and all it stands for. Protection of the environment may be used as a pretext to adopt a series of measures designed to undermine the industrial base of developed nations. It may also serve to introduce malaise by lowering their standard of living and implanting communist values.”

And who was this person?

Natalie Grant Wraga (who died in 2002 at age 101) was an internationally-recognized expert on the art of disinformation. In her Washington Post obituary, Herbert Romerstein — veteran intelligence expert in the legislative and executive branches of government — described Grant/Wraga as “one of our leading authorities” on Soviet deceit.

The Texas Republican Convention brags that it is the biggest political convention in the country. How it could be bigger than the national conventions, I don’t know, but that is what it brags, no surprise because it is Texas. Indeed, because Texas does everything bigger, even more of the corruption and criminality we have seen in other state conventions was the rule at the just concluded performance I attended in Houston.

In Nevada, for instance, when Las Vegas Republicans saw that Paul supporters outnumbered them, they shut down the convention to prevent a vote. By now you know that Republican bosses perpetrated similar electoral atrocities around the country. Because Texas is Texas, at the George R. Brown Convention Center they were worse.

Of course, all of these outrages are motivated by the Republican Party’s fear and loathing of Ron Paul. They used to send big shot Republicans like Newtie and Jorge W. Boosh to defeat him for re-election to Congress. They failed, of course, but recently they tried again. Dr. No won renomination to his House seat with 72% of the vote. The Democrats don’t waste time and money opposing him.

VETERAN GUINEA PIGS

By Jon Christian Ryter

NewsWithViews.com

The US government has a questionable history of using military personnel as guinea pigs to determine the potential health risks soldiers experience when they are exposed to caustic and sometimes deadly agents. During the period between the two world wars soldiers were deliberately exposed to mustard gas. Between 1945 to 1955 military personnel were exposed to radiation from nuclear bomb tests. In experiments conducted by the CIA and the US Army Biomedical Laboratory (under Project MKUltra), veterans were given the psychedelic drug Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, more commonly known as LSD. None of the military subjects given the drug consented to be guinea pigs, nor were any of them advised that LSD could cause long-term bizarre hallucinogenic psychoses. The experiments took place because the CIA and military intelligence believed LSD could be effective in interrogations and, the military believed, mind control. Some believed that LSD might lead to a cure for schizophrenia. When they realized LSD caused the problems they were trying to cure, the military moved on, leaving their victims to cope with the problems they induced.

In the 1960s and 1970s, military personnel in Vietnam were exposed to herbicides like Agent Orange. In the Gulf War US military personnel were tasked with the responsibility of burning up Saddam Hussein’s recovered caches of chemical and biological weapons whenever and wherever they were found. The soldiers were not told that the weaponry they were destroying contained toxic chemicals and biological agents that could do serious harm to them if they breathed the toxic fumes. Confirmed by testimony from scores of military victims in sworn US Senate testimony in 2002, few if any of the military guinea pigs were informed of potential health risks from exposure or consumption of the chemical or biological agents. In fact, it is doubtful that the officers of these men even knew what it was they were destroying.

REPLACING CONTROLLED NEWSPAPERS … WITH REAL ONES! By: Devvy

Back in February 2003, it was necessary for me to take the high-speed train (Acela) from Boston to Washington, DC. It was a nice ride. But one thing I noticed regarding the passengers in the four cars…..only two had laptop computers going. A few looked to be catching forty winks. All the other passengers were reading a newspaper with a cup of coffee nearby.

I thought to myself: “If only they could be reading the truth about the issues that are crushing America. If only they could be learning about the agenda that the global government has against them, instead of more manufactured ‘news’ about the same, worn-out political bickering on editorial pages and in popular columns.”

I believe I have found the answer to that dilemma. It is a way in which good, patriotic people can finally make a very good living AND, at the same time, help a lot of people fight the government. It is the best of both worlds. Being a Patriot AND making good money in the process of being a good citizen!

While political leaders and the news media continued to display their obsession with Senators Barack Obama, John McCain and Hillary Clinton, the US House of Representatives pushed through a bill that — for better or worse — will have an enormous impact on American citizens.

By a wide margin, FISA Amendments Act of 2008 (HR 6304) passed by a vote of 293-129 which surprised many Americans who believed President George Bush’s unpopularity and the antiwar sentiment would spell doom for one of the most controversial laws ever passed in the nation’s capital. See this video to learn what our leaders in Washington had to say about HR6304.

What happens when the “fact-checkers” don’t check facts and the “watchdogs” don’t watch? Consider the case of those who claim to be watching politicians for lies and deceptions and pretend to analyze Senator Barack Obama’s new patriotic “Country I Love” television ad, airing in 18 states.

The Annenberg Political Fact Check, a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, and Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz have written analyses of the Obama ad. But they are as flawed as the ad itself.

A peculiar and dangerous virus is currently infecting American public discourse. This virus pathologically transforms our language, so that our conversations with one another become garbled, confused, and ultimately meaningless. Words are transformed into something they never were intended to mean, or robbed of their meaning altogether. “Democracy” is set to the meaning of “republic,” “gambling” becomes “investment,” and “vice” becomes the “virtue of diversity.”

“Science” — to which I have devoted my life — is one of the most devalued words. And nowhere is it more abused than in the United Nations, where institutionalized mob rule is called “science.”

If Barack Obama wanted to dispel doubts about his national security credentials, he hasn’t done so with the announcement of a new “Senior Working Group on National Security” that includes Dr. Tony Lake, a former national security adviser to Bill Clinton. Lake became a laughingstock for expressing doubts as to whether Alger Hiss, the founder of the United Nations and a top State Department official, was a communist spy. Lake’s doubts led to a controversy that caused him to withdraw his nomination as Clinton’s CIA director.

Interestingly, Lake had expressed those doubts on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” during an interview conducted by the late Tim Russert. It went like this:

The 16-month Hillary-palooza has finally gone bust. Her website bravely instructs us to “Support Senator Obama Today.” Mrs. Clinton’s staff has been pared down to a skeleton crew. And she’s finally getting around to paying off the health insurance bills.

But Hillary’s campaign wasn’t a presidential nomination effort in the usual sense. It was a massive exercise in feminist consciousness-raising foisted on an unsuspecting American public.

Take Clinton’s June 7 concession speech that was billed as an endorsement of rival Barack Obama. In reality it was a neo-Marxist rant lightly disguised as a feminist pep talk.

An American military commander is advocating the testing of so-called nonlethal weapons on American citizens prior to using them on our enemies in the Global War on Terrorism.

While most Americans and members of the mainstream news media are all wrapped up in coverage of the 2008 presidential election, media critics are complaining about how many important news stories are being ignored. And here’s an example: a shocking statement by a top Pentagon official appears to have slipped through the cracks.
