Attention Impeachment Supporters: 9/11, 9/11, 9/11!

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

It would make so much more sense if the millions of people who have been screaming about impeaching George W. Bush finally examined the most impeachable offenses of his administration: the events of September 11th, 2001. Whether you choose to ignore the evidence by believing the official explanation of the events, or you have actually looked at the evidence and realize that the more realistic conclusion is that the Bush administration delivered those events to us, impeachment, imprisonment and possible execution are in order!

The people who have taken the time to actually contrast the official story to the official supportive evidence provided by the Bush administration already know that the official story is simply a cover-up protecting the real culprits, including the small cabal of Neocons and power brokers, who would eventually benefit financially and ideologically from the events of 9/11. But you don’t really need anything more than the official story to support impeaching Bush & company for sheer and dangerous incompetence, and for bieng a clear and obvious national security risk at that time! If you choose to ignore the evidence and simply believe the official story, the Bush administration should have been removed for its abject and total negligence. They failed miserably! They screwed up worse than any other administration in history and we let them keep their job! If your business was burglarized, would you keep the same security guards? Not a chance. Then why did we keep this administration after 9/11? They obviously were not up to the task of protecting us! That is, if you believe the official story.

Americans think that Democrats in Congress are actually doing their job by investigating the multitudes of crimes committed by this administration. We are finally hearing discussions about how we were lied into war, how a CIA operative was outted, how science has been manipulated endangering the entire world and how corruption has run rampant in Congress and the war Bush has waged in Iraq. So what? The Democrats in Congress continues to ignore the two biggest issues of our day: stolen elections and 9/11!

No matter how you look at it, the events of 9/11 should be a top priority. The events of that day should have resulted in an investigation of the Bush administration from top to bottom. And please, don’t think for a moment that the Kean Commission was either apolitical or in any way equipped to conduct an in-depth investigation of any sort. Their concern was the intelligence failures the nation was brainwashed to believe had taken place.

If you believe the official fairy tale, incompetence alone should have warranted a complete removal of an administration that could not heed warnings, could not follow existing procedures that would have allowed us to respond in a timely manner, could not capture the accused culprit or one that would schedule multiple war game exercises on the same day so as to create a cover for anyone looking to hit us on that day. We should have demanded the removal of a National Security Advisor (Condoleeza Rice) who was too inept to think of the possibility of planes being used as weapons and then was stupid enough to admit this in public. Imagine having a National Security Advisor who had never heard of Kamikaze pilots or the many drills and security measures practiced by our own nation designed to defend us of that exact scenario. Still, Rice gets out there and says that nobody could have imagined the use of planes as weapons!!! If you believed what she said then you must clearly understand how incompetent she was as a National SECURITY advisor and how incompetent a selection George W. Bush made for this vital position.

If you believe that the explanation that warnings were issued by other nations regarding the attacks were real warnings about terrorists and not warnings that insiders were about to do this, then Bush should have been fired for remaining on his extended vacation during this critical time! (Understandd that it is far more realistic that these warnings were insiders blowing the whistle on rogues operating from inside as well. If the terrorists were expert enough to pull this off, they would not have allowed themselves to be discoverd and there would have been no red flags raised by more than a dozen foreign nations.)
The most laughable argument ever made by anyone on this planet about anything in history is the argument that they are glad W.Bush was in office when the events of 9/11 took place! They say “would you rather Gore be in charge after the attacks?” The answer to that is that there would not have been attacks had someone else been in office. Gore’s supporters never wrote about needing a new Pearl Harbor and he would not have transferred the responsibility of protecting us from wayward aircraft from military men to political civilians like Donald Rumsfeld; one of the New Pearl Harbor supporters. He would not have allowed a maniac like Dick Cheney to take control of our military “exercises” to the point of rescheduling them so that they all take place on or around a single day, like 9/11/01.

It is very simple, and really either black or white: If you believe the official story then you have to admit to the incompetence and negligence of the Bush administration and you must support impeachment. And if you examine the official body of evidence, you must support criminal proceedings. Either way this administration should have been removed on September 12th 2001. But, as my grandmother used to say: better late then never. It is not too late - we must insist that a real investigation into the events of 9/11 takes place. And the investigation should be held outside of the political spectrum for we can not trust criminals to investigate themselves! Don’t let this issue die until justice is served! Think about it!

Marching and Protesting to Nowhere

Monday, January 29th, 2007

How old were you the last time that protests by American citizens had an impact on anything? Were you even born?

Communicating has never been easier for Americans. Aside from the old reliable postal mail service we have overnight mail, telephones, IP phones, instant messengers, e-mail, fax machines, blogs, graffiti, you name it, we got it! If people have to get on buses in order to tell our representatives to represent us the purpose of the bus trip should be to remove those leaders from office and replace them with people who will actually represent us.

It is time to stop marching and starting taking back our nation for real!Think about it

There Should Have Been Silence…..

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

Tonight, George W. Bush was cheered and applauded by members of Congress as he approached the dais to present his sixth SOTU address. He was applauded regularly throughout his address to the nation. That response was an unforgivable, yet predictable disgrace. The members of Congress applauded the words of their failed and incompetent leader. They applauded when there should have been total silence.

The almost festive gala broadcast around the world was a farce unlike any that has ever taken place in the halls of the US Congress. Everyone with an ounce of sanity knows that the state of the union is one of total disaster. No one with an iota of concern for the nation or the world should have raised one hand to applaud a single word spoken by George W. Bush. But they did.

Applause and cheering are signs of approval and are accolades for a job well done. The man speaking to the nation, and indeed the world, is a criminal, not a leader. George W. Bush is a puppet of corporate interests and political thugs. He has brought Americans to the closest brush with Fascism they has ever experienced, and he has waged an unending, illegal and immoral war that has shamed us as a nation. There should have been silence, but there was applause.

There should have been silence for the thousands of dead American and coalition troops, and for the maimed and blinded and limbless soldiers who have been sacrificed for nothing more than greed and hubris. There should have been silence for the hundreds of thousands of dead and wounded Iraqis whose nation will never recover from its wounds.
There should have been silence for the victims of Katrina whose plight has been ignored and forgotten in Louisiana and Mississippi, and who know first hand that their President is a professional liar who cares nothing at all for their continued suffering. And, last but not least, there should have been silence for the Constitution of the United States that is now on its deathbed. There should have been total silence, and yet, there was applause.

Whatever George Bush said during his speech was total gibberish. His proposals meant nothing and his goals another series of empty, inane promises for improving the quality of life in a nation he has systematically brought to its knees.

Damn the hypocrites who applauded George Bush despite their disgust. Damn the supporters who still don’t get it, and damn anyone and everyone who showed the rest of the world that there is respect and admiration for the man who has taken us to hell.

There should have been total and absolute silence. Every face should have shown anger and defiance. That response would have upheld the dignity of the Congress and shown respect for the office of the Presidency. But it also would have reflected the TWENTY EIGHT PERCENT APPROVAL RATING that the nation gave this man today.

In my private scenario, I would have placed a photo of a dead soldier or marine to be held aloft by every honorable and enraged member of Congress. But in the real world, U heard applause as the world’s leading terrorist conjured up September 11th once again and as he assumed not a single atom of responsibility for having made us all more unsafe than ever in history.

There should have been silence. There really should have. But there was not.

Franken to Seek Senate Seat as I Predicted: Are You Listening to Me Yet?

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Whenever I step over the line of pre-approved official reality the unsubscribe messages pour into my e-mail box; but here I go again! Many people have asked me about my opinion of Air America Radio and their liberal hosts. Most of the questions relate to Al Franken or Randi Rhodes. I have answered questions about both of these people many times, in e-mail, in person, on stage and on the air…on the record; and my assessment of Franken seems to be playing out just as I described many times.

I described Al Franken as a good man who sold his soul. It is my personal opinion that he was approached by the people who run our government and control our information flow from behind the scenes. From what I see I felt that Franken was told that he can keep his place in public life if he prescribed to pre-approved reality; the same pre-approved reality that we see depicted by the corporate media. I specifically said that I felt Franken would be allowed to hold public office, specifically a Senatorial seat, as long as he did not cross the line and publicly discuss any issues that were not approved by the people who have complete control over our political system.

This assessment is the only one I could come up with to explain why Franken refuses to discuss the mountains of evidence proving that elections in this nation are no longer in the hands of the voters and that Bush, and most of Congress, are in office because the people who predetermine the political landscape for us wanted it that way. The media simply work to build an environment of believability for the eventuality of the decisions of the people behind the scenes. It also explains why Franken pretends to not notice that there is a ton of very valid undisputed evidence that contradicts the official explanation of the events of 9/11. And last but not least it explains why Franken almost exclusively invites members of “think tanks” to be guests on his program.

Well, did you ever look into what think tanks are? Did you ever wonder who pays to create and run think tanks? Think tanks are the most visible and nefarious elephant in the room when it comes to the secretive powers that control our government. Everyone talks about them, but nobody ever explains them. We accept them as part of the political landscape but we never look into what they are, what they do, the power they yield and who is behind them.

Al Franken went from a politically vocal comedy writer to a possible Senatorial candidate; all the while he addressed only the topics and issues that were embraced for public scrutiny by the corporate media and he has worked very hard to discredit those who simply wanted to question tangible evidence that contradicts officially approved reality. And all the while his pre-approved reality was carefully groomed and observed by his regular committee of think tank representatives. Do you think there is a connection here?

I forgot one vital aspect of Franken’s ticket to stardom; he has faithfully prescribed to the “blank check for Israel” policy. There is no criticism of Israel worthy of discussion in Franken’s world and any facts that reflect poorly on Israel indicate nothing but anti-Semitism; no matter how true they may be!

Don’t let Al Franken’s little feud with Bill O’Reilly fool you they are one in the same. FOX, CNN, ABC, Air America (post Mike Malloy), are all the same. They try their best to get you to believe that bias is the main problem with the media when in reality the problem is not bias, it is deception and most of this deception comes in the form of omission of information. It’s not what they say, it is what they don’t say, and Franken don’t say what isn’t approved by the people behind the scenes and that’s a fact! Think about it!

Who Gave the Order to Turn on Bush?

Friday, January 12th, 2007

What changed? What caused the entire US media sans FOX News to reverse course on their relentless support for George W. Bush? What caused the Republican members of Congress to break from their Hitler Youth like obedient allegiance to their Fuehrer, George W. Bush?

There has not been any single event that changed the world. Nothing new has really taken place, just a lot more of the same. For virtually every person who blindly and supported every single action of the front man for PNAC, George W. Bush, to suddenly and strikingly completely reverse their positions something must have happened and I believe that the people behind the scenes who really run our government and control our media created that event. They gave the order; they changed their minds; they regret their decision to put this mad regime in place.

Again, I ask you what just happened that would have caused this full scale reversal. There is nothing we know now that we did not know three years ago. The people who reversed course are not even addressing the real “revelation” like the pile of lies and high crimes that led to this war. That information has been known all along; just look at the Downing Street Memos, and the other Downing Street Memos. Someone told these people that it is time for change and it was not the American people; it was the people behind the scenes that control the agenda. You are once again witnessing the power of the powerful people who completely control our political process. There is no other reasonable plausible explanation for the current reversal of support for the criminal in chief and his policies. Think about it!

Beware the Fake Media Watchdog

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

This is an open letter from the editor of TvNewsLIES.org to Rory O’Connor in response to his interview with the CBS News Chief Sean McManus. The interview can be read here:
http://alternet.org/mediaculture/45780/

Rory,

I hope you remember me. I am the editor of TvNewsLIES.org. We met at one of Danny Schecter’s C-SPAN interviews and then again at his office in NY. We had discussed possible collaborations at the time.

I just read your interview with the CBS news chief and I have one thing to say…I am stunned. I am absolutely stunned that you had face time with this person and those are the questions you chose to ask.

America has never been led down a more dangerous path by our news media. The levels of deception and information omission by our corporate news media have never been greater while the level of distraction, (i.e. Laci Peterson and missing hikers) has never been more prevalent and you use this valuable opportunity to confront one of the criminals in chief to ask questions as if you were a high school kid doing his first interview with your principal. After 2 paragraphs I was expecting you to ask him about his favorite color.

Opportunities Passed (I would have said missed but by all appearances you did not miss anything…you knew exactly what you were doing…and not doing):

You could have asked him why six years into a PNAC driven global war on terror, war on civil rights and war on the US Constitution no mention of PNAC has been made on CBS, not even on 60 Minutes.

You could have asked him why CBS News broadcasts have not informed the public about the fact that 7 of the so called 9/11 hijackers are still alive or about the hundreds of other contradictions between the official story of 9/11 and the official body of evidence.

You could have asked him if he thought PNAC’s published desire for a “new Pearl Harbor” represents a reasonable and valid concern about who had motives while also having the means and opportunity to conduct the attacks of 9/11 and if he thought it was too far fetched to think that it is just coincidence that the US would have our first new Pearl Harbor in sixty years when men who wrote about the the benefits of having one just happen to be in positions to prevent, permit or conduct the events of 9/11, our new Pearl Harbor!

You could have asked him why CBS has not highlighted the ten thousand six hundred scientists, scientific researchers and Nobel laureates who signed a petition condemning the the Bush administration for political interference; thus endangering our health and life on Earth.

You could have asked him why the entire news media and political apparatus of our nation are incestuously intertwined with secretive organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations.

You could have asked him why there has never been a single news report informing the public that the Federal Reserve Bank is not part of the government and is a private, for profit corporation that appears to completely control our monetary policy, recessions, inflations and economic collapses while it answers to no US government body including Congress or the executive branch.

Instead you chose to ask questions like: “Is it true you are the living reincarnation of Roone Arledge?”, “You’ll make more money this year?” and “Are you looking at new potential revenue sources?”

Need I say more?

Rory, I could go on and on but you get the point. I met you several times and I thought you were one of us: members of the reality based world who care about our nation and global community. Your close ties with one of the people I respected most, Danny Schecter, served as stamp of approval for you in my book.

By virtue of your close ties with Danny, after reading your interview I also question Danny’s legitimacy as a media watchdog. I also don’t know with whom I should be more angry, the head of CBS News who, because of his position as a leader of a corporate news entity, is an enemy of all American citizens, or with you; a person who had the chance to confront the enemy and instead played along with him and helped to legitimize him.

A very stunned and disappointed - make that angry,
Jesse Richard - Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

Mysterious Object Found: White House Evacuated

Friday, December 15th, 2006

A mysterious object was found at the White House this morning leading to the complete evacuation of all occupants. Nobody in the White House including George W. Bush & Dick Cheney could identify the item but they both felt that it was a grave threat to their administration and they had the D.C. bomb squad dispose of it.

The new Democratic leadership in Congress refused to examine the item before its disposal but several well meaning members of Congress from both sided of the aisle led by Robert Byrd & Ron Paul were among the few people in D.C. to be able to identify the object. It turns out that the mysterious object that poses a threat to the Bush administration is the U.S. Constitution. Last we heard the object has been removed from the White House. Think about it!

Don’t Ask Congress; Tell Congress

Monday, December 11th, 2006

Every day I get email “telling” me to “ask” my Congressperson to take one position or another. In other words they want me to “ask” the people who are supposed to represent me to do their job. Well they have not done their job. In my entire life I do not remember a period in which Congress represented the well being of their constituents. My advice to all…stop asking and start telling…and make our representatives fear they day that the people may actually hold them accountable. Just a thought.  Think about it!

Somebody, Please! Take the Grenades out of Bush’s Hand!

Friday, December 8th, 2006

A year after the attacks of 9/11, a timid and obedient Congress handed George W. Bush a bag of live grenades. With that ominous bequest came the right to pull the pins and toss the grenades wherever this petulant resident of the White House chose to hurl them. There would be no oversight, no accountability and no questions asked. “Toss away,” was the message on the Iraq War Resolution gift card, “and we’ll pick up the tab.”

And toss away he did.

What the hell is wrong with this picture? Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians and thousands of young American troops have been blown to bits. A once viable nation has been destroyed beyond repair, an entire region is on the brink of disaster, Billions of dollars are enriching the war profiteers and bleeding the American economy, and still this unstable man of questionable intellect with no previous grenade experience is permitted to hold on to his lethal arsenal.

It is absolutely mind boggling that the country has not risen up to stop him.

There is no time left. The situation in Iraq is spiraling ever downward while the Iraq Study Group sets forth its meaningless plan for ‘going forward.’ Everyone who really understands the gravity of the situation and the potential for even greater disaster is pleading with George W. Bush to make a decision about the way to end the horror in Iraq. Damn, that’s akin to asking an arsonist to decide how to put out the forest fire he himself has set. It’s an absurdity beyond belief. Even after all these years of missteps that have taken so many people to the gates of hell, people are still looking to the White House for a solution. How much more bungling incompetence can we take?

We can no longer allow George W. Bush or his handlers to make a single new decision about the conduct of the war in Iraq. Neither can he be allowed to stay his catastrophic course any longer. He has to be stopped now, and it can be done.

No, impeachment is not the answer. That process will take far too long and its outcome is highly unpredictable. Something has to be done as soon as the new Congress is in session, and as soon as it is possible to legally put and end to the insanity of one man rule that has replaced any vestige of shared power in this country. The ability to toss more grenades has to be wrested from the hands of the man who has run totally amok. What Congress has given to the President of the United States, it can also take away. And that is exactly what has to be done.

Last July, Rep. Lynn Woolsey [D-Ca] introduced the Iraq War Powers Repeal Act of 2006. The expressed purpose of HR5875 was to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 (Public Law 107-243). Simply stated, the bill would take away the war powers given in haste to the President of the United States as he lied to the Congress and the nation about the dire necessity of an attack against Iraq.

Of course, the corporate media ignored it and most Americans had no clue that a bill of this sort had been introduced. On the Internet, many bloggers and anti war web sites publicized Woolsey’s bill, but there was not a chance in hell it could pass, and predictably the bill died in committee. However, this election has changed the playing field. As soon as the new Congress convenes, HR5875 or its equivalent has to be revived and treated as a priority of the greatest urgency.

That can only happen if the people make it happen. We have the power. We have the votes. Now we need the action.

Enough said. Call your representative. Write snail mail. Don’t email, it goes nowhere. Call and write again and again until you get a commitment from your Representative to support this bill or any other that will take away the war powers that George Bush is using to single handedly continue his madness.

It can be done. Someone has to grab the bag of grenades away from George W. Bush. He will never give them up voluntarily, and he will never stop to consider the carnage he causes with every devastating move. The time is right. Let’s go for it.

Electronic Voting Warnings: Think About the Timing

Friday, December 1st, 2006

We are finally starting to hear some official government bodies admit that electronic voting machines can not be trusted and a paper trail should be included in every electoral system. I want you all to think about why they waited until after the midterm elections to make their announcements? They have had years to evaluate the systems and they could have come to these conclusions after the primaries when problems arose all over the nation. They could have simply logged in to Bradblog.com on any given day and drawn the same conclusion. How responsible are the people who chose to make their announcements AFTER the election? At first you may think they are safeguarding democracy by coming forward with this information but when you really think about it you have to ask yourself why they waited!  Think about it!
