One Word for All of You China Product Bashers: Cigarettes!

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

As America continues it’s relentless mission to push the limits of hypocrisy in every area from human rights to personal or national security, the recent spate of attacks on Chinese made products by the American glass-house-living, stone throwing establishment media serves as another example of how American hypocrisy seems to have no limits.

Let us for a moment forget about the healthy and safe contributions to our air, water and DNA altered food supply our American corporations have made. Forget for a moment about the mercury in your autistic child’s American made vaccine or the hormones, antibiotics or rocket fuel in your American cow produced milk, and forget about the poison pouring into our rivers from our American manufacturing plants. Forget for a moment about the new laws pushed through by the Bush administration reversing the efforts to reduce the amount of mercury and other poisons being pumped into your air by coal burning power plants. Let’s just think about one product made predominantly by American companies and sold around the world by American companies. That one product: cigarettes.

Think about this…cigarettes are the only product ever permitted to be produced and sold, virtually unregulated, that when used as directed will kill you. It is the only legal product that will, with every use, not only cause harm to the user but with cause harm to and all people within air traveling distance from the user.

I have seen American people yell and scream and throw tantrums when any discussions about their right to smoke are even discussed. I, as an asthma sufferer have had to tip toe around the over sensitivities of people who care not about the harm they do to those around us while they exercise their right to make use of the deadly harmful product known as the cigarette. These same people are now bashing the Chinese because they produced cheap toys and cheap food that may not be as safe as they should be. Oh, is there even a word to describe the magnitude of American hypocrisy?

If Americans want to address the problems posed by dangerous products they may want to start with American products. Americans don’t even want to keep their kids safe from cigarettes, what makes them want to protect them from toys? Think about it!

Jesse’s Law: You Start a War, You Lead the Way

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

You want peace? You want corporate war profiteer CEO’s and members of their families to stop lying us into wars? Here is the answer: You make it a law that any politician who votes or orders troops into combat outside our borders must pick up a weapon and lead the battle from the deepest penetration point on the battlefield.

Come on Cheney…maybe you can shoot something other than helpless captive farm birds…and the faces of your so called friends! Maybe we’ll see how IED proof your SUV is!

I introduce this law. Do I hear a second? Think about it!

Laws Exist to Protect Citizens, Not Politicians

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

Let’s not mince words here…the Patriot Act, the DOMESTIC spying program, the Justice Department firings and many recent strategic decisions by Congress and the Bush administration were not designed or implemented with your safety in mind. These things exists for one reason and one reason only, to prevent the citizens of this nation from preventing, stopping pr punishing the people in positions of power from abusing their power.

As a matter of fact many of the new “post 9/11” laws and executive orders were designed specifically to prevent the citizens of this nation from even finding out about abuses of power. Let’s not fool ourselves, none of of us are safer in any way shape or form due to the legal post 9/11 posturing of the US government establishment. As a matter of fact we are in more danger than ever and that danger stems from threats posed by people who abuse power.

As my fellow Americans snooze through the dismantling of our Constitution what is taking place is very simple…it is a systematic implementation of a totalitarian dictatorship. Unfortunately the only time many people won’t stop ridiculing me for pointing this out until it is to late to do anything about it. Actually I wonder how we can fix this problem now, even if everyone took notice. But as each day passes without public action the remedy for this problem becomes more difficult, and dangerous…if you know what I mean. Think about it!

The Minds of Musicians

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

I have often said that comedians are the most brilliant people on Earth for they are able to see the obvious; the insanity in our world. I also say that songwriters are brilliant in their own way for they have answers to many of our ills. It’s funny; I look at it like this…comedians can sure spot all the problems and songwriters seem to be able to solve all of the problems. I guess that makes Al Yankovic just about the smartest guy on Earth. OK, maybe not; but you get my drift.

Interestingly enough I have been the class clown just about my entire life. Believe it or not when I am not “educating” people or tackling the serious issues of the world I am usually cracking up crowds, be they in an office or at a family gathering. I am also a musician, although not much of a lyricist. Perhaps if I put down the guitar and wrote some lyrics I would give Al Yankovic something to worry about.

Though the years I have identified blocks of lyrics in popular music that I feel have very powerful messages. There have been a few artists or groups that have particularly impressed me with their ability to speak the truth and say it like it is. Groups like the Clash & the Police come to mind, not to mention John Lennon. Brittney Spears is not on my list; just in case you were wondering.

Anyway, I have been a fan of the Police (the musical group), for quite a while. I was fortunate enough to see them play in concert this weekend. The world has changed since the last time I got to see them play so as I watched them this time I got a little more out of the experience. As usual I marveled at Sting’s voice, Andy Summers’ impossible chording and Stewart Copeland’s remarkable one man percussion section. But this time the lyrics had a bigger impact on me than the music. One song in particular hit me hard and as soon as I heard it, or I should say remembered it, I knew I would be writing about it.

Anyway…here is today’s newsletter, in the form of a song written in 1980…and let me tell you it speaks louder today than it did back then!

“Driven To Tears”

How can you say that you’re not responsible?
What does it have to do with me?
What is my reaction, what should it be?
Confronted by this latest atrocity

Driven to tears
Driven to tears
Driven to tears

Hide my face in my hands, shame wells in my throat
My comfortable existence is reduced to a shallow meaningless party
Seems that when some innocent die
All we can offer them is a page in a some magazine
Too many cameras and not enough food
‘Cos this is what we’ve seen

Driven to tears
Driven to tears
Driven to tears

Protest is futile, nothing seems to get through
What’s to become of our world, who knows what to do

Driven to tears

Think about it!

Meet Me at the 9/11 Eyewitness Documentary Presentation in NYC on Sunday, July 22nd!

Friday, July 20th, 2007

I will be a guest of the producers of the documentary film 9/11 Eyewitness this Sunday in NYC. All are invited to view the film. You can meet the producers and me at the film. I am not sure of there will be a Q&A session but I will surely hang around to meet people and answer questions after the film.

The film will be presented as part of the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival. The screening will start at 6:00 PM and will be shown at City Cinemas Village East. You can get your tickets here:
http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?dispatch=loadSelectionData&pl=itn&eventId=192010

Information about the other films being shown during the festival can be found here:
http://www.nyfilmvideo.com/2007/ny-july/schedule/ny-july-2007-schedule.html
I attended the opening of the festival last night and I can say there are several excellent documentaries that are being presented on a variety of topics ranging from Native Americans to the horrors of Darfur. Even if you do not attend the screening of 9/11 Eyewitness you are sure to find some fine films that suit your interests.

The producers are hoping to find companies that are willing to distribute the film domestically and internationally. It is hard to imagine a distribution company with the courage to screen 9/11 documentaries, but can you imagine what would happen if the many good documentaries on the subject were to hit the screens? It’s nice to dream once in a while… Think about it!

There are No Political Solutions to Criminal Problems

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Why do Democrats still talk about impeaching George W. Bush and his Machiavellian Svengali Dick Cheney? Are Democrats so blind as not to realize that the system is broken? Do they really expect a criminally complicit Congress to go after some other criminals in White House? Has this “New Century” not served up sufficient evidence to prove that we are not participating in any democracy or representative government and that the entire system is a show? Have people not been paying attention to the most obvious conspiracy to deceive the American people about virtually every single important issue by the establishment media?

If the Scooter Libby technical pardon has not slapped your face with enough reality to wake you up, perhaps this will: nothing will become of this egregious abuse of power by George W. Bush, the Junior Soprano figure head to Dick Cheney’s Tony Soprano godfather! We may see some posturing, press conferences, useless Congressional resolutions and you may get some “action items” assigned to you by Moveon.org or other gatekeepers, but nothing will happen. What we have here are criminals protecting criminals. The system is broken. None of these people represent you and they are simply pretending to do just enough to keep you from taking up arms and killing them once and for all!

Smell the coffee…the Bush administration is in power thanks to an electoral coup; you know it, Congress knows it, the media knows it and everybody is pretending that this is politics as usual. The people who control our world yanked away every last bit of our democracy with installation of the Bush administration. Gore knew it, Kerry knew it, Edwards knew it, and the media knows it and nobody is going to say a damn thing because the people in charge own all of the above.

First they completely eliminated the risk posed by the Internet of real information bypassing the filter of the establishment media and influencing the citizens into voting for their own candidates, by using every dirty trick from deceptive paper ballots to easily manipulated computer voting machines. Then they scared you into letting them go about with the plans for a “New American Century” by conducting the events of 9/11 under the cloak of the military exercises that “coincidently” took place on the morning of 9/11. Then they laughed in your face as George W. Bush played the Emperor with no clothes as he lied to the world when he said that Saddam had weapons and then lied even more when he said that he had to bomb Iraq because Saddam refused to let the inspectors in; all the while the inspectors were already inspecting!!! The media and politicians still use the justification that Saddam could have avoided war if he had let the inspectors in. THEY WERE IN! EVERYONE KNOWS THAT! DOES THE NAME HANS BLIX RING A BELL? THE MEDIA JUST STAND THERE AND LET THE LIE CONTINUE AS THAT IS THEIR JOB! WHEN WILL AMERICA REALIZE THIS? WHEN WILL AMERICA GET UP AND STORM THE ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA OUTLETS AND QUARTER THE PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE?

You are lied to every single day about almost every single issue. The funny thing is that the truth is not hidden. You just don’t believe things unless the people on TV tell you that it is OK. The people who control the media know this! The people who comprise our media and our government are killing with every breath they take and with every word they use to deceive you. Your food, water, air and planet are being murdered forever by these people and you still trust them to keep you safe! OPEN YOUR EYES! THEY ARE KILLING YOU AND MAKING YOU DO NOTHING BUT WORK TO MAKE THEM RICH!

As I write this a man who invented a water powered car THIRTY YEARS AGO is being intentionally ignored by our media. As I write this there is another man at who invented a device that allows a car to run on water and you are not allowed to have this and the media won’t pay attention to this. As I write this another man sits on an accidentally discovered technology that allows salt water to burn as fuel but you won’t be allowed to benefit from this ever! This kind of story won’t be allowed to get past the local station that reports it! And guess what…here is another guy who had a similar discoveryOur government is trying to suppress his planet changing invention! AND YOU DON”T KNOW ABOUT IT!!! WHY NOT? WHO IS KEEPING THIS FROM YOU? As I write this there are mountains of evidence disproving almost every aspect of the official explanation of 9/11 yet you won’t look at it! As I write this there is an illegal private corporation that is not part of our government called the Federal Reserve that has illegally been given the right to create money out of nothing and then charge you and your government interest for borrowing this valueless paper! It was only after this little private bank started charging our government interest that you had to start paying income tax (another illegal reality) just so that you can pay these private bankers and make them the wealthiest people alive! That’s why the revolution took place…to get away from taxation without representation! We started this nation to get away from the Bank of England and here we are back with the same ole same ole! And good old Lou Dobbs won’t tell this to you…but you can check it out for yourself! Then you can tell me why you should not crack a bat over Lou Dobbs’ head for leaving that little tidbit out of his daily fight for the rights of the American worker! IT’S A SHOW! IT’S ALL A SHOW! WAKE UP!

Do you get it yet? There are two worlds out there: reality, and the world that the establishment media create and maintain at the behest of the establishment! It’s not hard to see…you just have to be willing to look! Will today’s news about Libby finally be the kick in the face you people need in order to see what is going on?

Wednesday we will celebrate Independence Day (although most of the clueless Americans think they are celebrating the 4th of July…the holiday is Independence Day!!!) May I be so bold as to say that if we are to survive, a new Independence Day is something that this nation and the world needs disparately! And may I say we start by exposing the media for what they are, the greatest enemy of the American people. By exposing them we render their distractions and delusions useless and then the rest of the criminals will no longer have the cloaking device to protect them from the citizens! Eliminate the cloak of the media and the rest of the criminals shall fall for the people will finally see the truth! Think about it!

The Most Embarrassing Night in American Television News History: On a Monumental News Day CNN’s Larry King Interviews Paris Hilton

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

Let us for a moment forget about the fact that the US establishment news media are, by virtue of their complete complicity in hiding from the public virtually all vital information about our nation and the world, the greatest enemy of our democracy and the American people. Let’s just pretend they are just not very competent when it comes to journalism.

Now even if we believe that the members of the US establishment news media are stupid enough to think that information related to the conduct and daily life of a person who has absolutely no impact on anyone outside of her family and social circle, like Paris Hilton, is of interest to the American people, can anyone really justify the fact that with all of the news that has come out on this given day, June 27th 2007, CNN’s Larry King could not find a more important topic to cover for an entire hour on live TV…on a network that claims to be a NEWS network?

Now an hour of this embarrassing nonsense was not enough for CNN. The closet homosexual (according to my sources) Anderson Cooper followed up the one hour embarrassment with a panel discussion on the Paris Hilton coverage where he replayed portions of the interview (like the vital issue about Paris’ favorite bible passage…which she has none…because she probably never heard of the bible), and discussed the interview in depth.

On a day that saw subpoenas related to criminal investigations issued to the White House and the most pathetic criminal do nothing Congress whose hard work has propelled the American government into and through its most anti-Constitutional, corrupt, illegal, incompetent and dangerous period in history, approved a pay raise for themselve, Larry King interviewed a spoiled brat bimbo! Larry King stands as a symbol of what has become of American establishment journalism; a joke on the American people and a conspiracy to keep them uninformed about the real world. 

On any given day all one has to do in order to see what your criminal American establishment media types are actively working to hide from you, visit the TvNewsLIES.org news page ( http://news.tvnewslies.org ); but today…holy cow, today was a news doozy! And yet the American people are force fed Paris Hilton! You see reality actually does get reported by our establishment media…but the people who decide how much ( if any ) attention is paid to each news item and how, when and where (broadcast, headline or tiny little article in some local paper) each news item is distributed for mass publication, make sure Americans are not made aware of unapproved reality! These people also decide how much discussion will take place on any given news item. That is why non-vital (non-vital on a national level) news items like a local murder or missing child or Paris Hilton systematically end up on every single news broadcast and other world changing news items like the discovery of technology to run cars and all engines on WATER, never get past a little report on some local news program. You see if reporters were told not to report stories the conspiracy would be obvious and well known. So the brilliant criminals simply control the proliferation of information and they bury most of the real news this way. You don’t have to take my word for this, you just have to pay attention and observe that this is taking place. It happens every single day. Just compare any of our daily news reports to what you get from CNN, NBC or any of the establishment criminals and you’ll understand.

The state of the media is no longer a joke, it is a serious threat to our well being. Irreversible harm is being done to our lives, personal wealth, food chain, air, water and our democracy. The criminals who are doing this harm are being protected by the media. At the same time solutions to serious problems and global crises like new clean free energy sources and health related discoveries are hidden from the public by the establishment media. If the so called patriots of this nation understood the ramifications of the conduct of the US establishment media they would be like me in understanding that the establishment media is indeed the greatest enemy of the American people for the enable all other enemies to harm us with impunity.

In a sad statement about the collective American intellect made possible by the dumbing down of America by the establishment media, there exists a television program called “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” It is not surprising that this program is on a FOX network. Well, to me it is obvious that Americans in general are far less intelligent than 5th graders should be for if they were as intelligent they would understand what is going on and they would take to the streets in order to defeat our most dangerous and harmful enemies, the members of the establishment media…by any means necessary! Think about it.

Is Anybody Going to Stop Dick Cheney?

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

When it comes to the multitude of crimes committed by Dick Cheney do we really need the smoking gun to be in the form of a mushroom cloud before we decide to haul him off in shackles? This is getting stupid, from the events of 9/11 to the blatant in your face self assertion that American laws don’t apply to him, can anyone seriously say that Dick Cheney is not a criminal?

Virtually every crime committed by the Bush administration from starting a war based on lies to outing a covert intelligence official, to the destruction of official records, has Dick Cheney’s finger prints all over it! The outrageous behavior of Cheney has become a global joke, only there is nothing funny about it! Cheney is perhaps the biggest criminal in the history of the American political system and the most this nation is willing to do about it is tell jokes about him!

Is anyone living in the real world? Is there a human being left in our political system or judicial system that is willing to open his or her eyes and stop this mad man? Holy cow…it’s one thing to be willing to look at the overwhelming evidence of his complicity in the events of 9/11/2001, but hell, this guys is simply looking us all in the face and telling us that laws don’t apply to him! He is telling this to us with his own mouth! This is not conspiracy theory, this is confession! How much evidence does the American public need before they do something about the biggest criminal in American governmental history?

I must be dreaming. The people of the world can not be as crazy as they are acting. I’ll go back to sleep now. Maybe I’ll wake up to reality. I’ll know that I am in a real world when I turn on my TV and see news reports about Cheney getting sentenced to hang in the gallows for high crimes and crimes against humanity! Until that happens I will have a hard time believing that my fellow Americans are part of any real world because they could not possibly allow this guy to continue his crime spree unopposed! Think about it.

Attention Homeless Iraq War Vets: It’s Time to Seek Out Those “Troop Supporters!”

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

In yet another “we told you so” in the battle between so called patriots and so called people who hate America, the people who supposedly hate America are once again proven correct in their criticism of this nation!. It is unfortunate that the people who love this nation enough to speak out when they see the ugly side of what takes place in the name of America are called anti-American, and the people who voice support of our nation while turning a blind eye to any and all wrongdoing by our leaders are considered patriots! Well once again the patriots were wrong and once again it is the icon of American patriotism, the US veteran of war, who has to pay the price for the blind loyalty of the so called American patriot.

While millions and millions of Americans protested the George W. Bush administration and their attempt to boldly lie like no other administration in history, blind patriots all over this nation went out and purchased American flags (that were most likely not even made in America), and wrapped them around their heads, covering their eyes and ears. You see to those people information, history, evidence, or current reality mean nothing. Words and phrases are the only things that count to many American patriots. Words and phrases like “freedom”, “protecting us”, “commie”, “liberal”, “good vs. evil”, and my favorite: “support the troops!.”  What these words and phrases mean is not the concern of the American patriot. The only thing that matters is that you say the right thing and repeat the right phrases. And how do these people find out which words and phrases are good and which words and phrases are evil? They watch TV!

Unfortunately many American’s have no inclination to think for themselves. I don’t believe that these people are stupid, I actually think that they are good people. I just believe that these people understand deep down inside that it would be too painful to discover that their faith in government has been misguided. They are so in love with their image of America that they can not face the possibility that America is not what they think it is!

Well evidence is all around us proving that the image of America in the minds of many American patriots is less than accurate. All one has to do in order to understand this is pretty much pay attention. There are no secrets. There are no hidden mysteries. One does not have to rely on conspiracy theories, one only needs to open their eyes and witness the conspiracy for themselves.

Our media continues to show the American people apples while they report on oranges. All you have to do it look at the orange for a minute and you will see that the discussion about apples in just smoke and mirrors. Well, actually those “apple” discussions are lies, but let’s not get too technical for now.

So in the latest apple news American patriots are going to be seeing some oranges for themselves for quite some time. These oranges will be in the form of homeless Iraqi war veterans. These troops will be living proof that the “support the troops” apple rhetoric coming from our government and our media has nothing to do with the orange reality in which we live. We anti-American types tried to warn everyone. We tried to tell people that supporting a war based on lies has nothing to do with supporting troops. We tried to point out the orange orchard of information that indicated that the media and the Bush administration lie with pretty much every sentence they utter. The oranges are all over to prove our point. Instead of listening to us and simply opening your eyes you wrapped another layer of flag over your eyes and ears and you cursed the very ground we stood on. Well, as we have said before, time and time again, when it comes to ant-American reality…we told you so!

So now it is time for the war/troop supporters to do some supporting. I suggest that each and every homeless American military member seek out the homes of people who have those “We Support Our Troops” signs on their doors, windows, lawns and cars, and start knocking on their doors. Ask the many troop supporters for the medical help you need. Ask them for the education funds that the government promised you. Ask them for every benefit and entitlement that you were promised and never received because of red tape or because they were eliminated or cut by the George W. Bush administration and the pro-war Congress! Ask them for the support for which they so boldly take credit! I want to see how much support you actually receive from these people.

You see America, people like me and the millions of other reality based Americans, who have the courage and pride to stand up and say when our country is wrong or when our leaders are lying to us, are patriots. We are the same type of people who fought for the independence of America in the first place. We risk a lot for the good of us all. It is high time that you hear us. Maybe this latest I told you so will serve as a wake up call.

It’s not about supporting the troops, it’s about supporting the truth. If patriots had done so in the first place maybe the phrase “homeless vet” would have never been created! But now that it has, it’s time that the people who refused to support the truth to support the troops. Think about it.

Is Bush Al Qaeda?

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

We keep hearing that the greatest threat to America is Islamic terrorism; most specifically al Qaeda led Islamic terrorism. We were told, even though the evidence points elsewhere, that al Qaeda was responsible for the attacks of September 11th, 2001. We keep hearing how al Qaeda hates our way of life and wants hates our freedom. Yet during the past seven years it has been the Bush administration that has done the most harm to the American way of life and it is the Bush administration that has eliminated a great many of our freedoms. Interestingly enough during the past seven years the threats to and harm imposed on the American people by the Bush administration and by Congress far surpass any harm outside terrorists could have or could eventually do to us.

To start with no foreign terrorist could have stolen presidential elections in this nation. The military surely would have stepped in and stopped them. Today we have seven years worth of accumulated evidence that the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections were stolen by the Bush administration yet the military, and Congress for that matter, support the people who have hijacked our nation. During the years since the 2000 coup the criminals who stole the election have damaged virtually every aspect of our nation beyond imagination and in some instances beyond repair. This includes weakening our military while strengthening the private paramilitary companies owned by the friends of the Bush administration. Are they getting ready for something here?

The United States government has many oversight and regulatory institutions. What has happened with these institutions since the installation of the Bush cabal serves as proof positive that the intent of George W. Bush is to un-protect the American people from virtually every type of harm posed to them while taking credit for protecting them from one mythical type of harm; that posed by the boogie men known as Islamic terrorists. You see what has happened is that George W. Bush has replaced the leadership of virtually agency that is supposed to protect the American people from one thing or another, with representatives or lobbyists from the industries and entities from which these institutions are supposed to protect us! This is the proverbial fox guarding the hen house only it’s for real and it is outrageous…and nobody is doing anything about it!

Imagine if you will, the street gangs of Los Angeles being issued guns and police badges and given free reign to keep the peace as they see fit. Imagine if you will, a convicted serial pedophile being hired to run your child’s daycare center. Imagine if you will, Mafia loan sharks being put in charge of your mortgage or student loan. Well, you don’t have to imagine too much because just about anywhere you look today, from the judicial system to the FDA to the EPA to the FCC and any other letter group you can think of…we have foxes guarding hen houses.

From eliminating the middle class to seeing to it that health care is unattainable by most of us virtually every aspect of American life has been assaulted by the Bush administration.

The harm done to our way of life by the Bush administration can not be accurately measured but we are all starting to feel it. The Bush administration has attacked this nation throughly, viciously, methodically and completely. They seem to hate Americans and it appears that they are destroying America’s abiltiy stop their plans for global domination. They have been a super-virus that has infected our nation and weakened it to a point of virtual collapse. Now if there really was an al Qaeda wouldn’t you think they would be pretty happy about what is going on here? Maybe they actually are happy only maybe we are just not asking the correct question…is al Qaeda actually the Bush administration? Think about it.
