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 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.

Would Somebody Finally Tell Me Why Cuba Is My Enemy? Ditto on Chavez!

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

While I was watching some Halliburton related Senate hearing I heard a Senator Sherrod Brown, a Democrat from Ohio, mention that Cuba was included in the Trading with the Enemies Act. This caused me to once again ask the obvious question that has never once in my lifetime been answered, not by a US politician and surely not by the US establishment media: why is Cuba my enemy? Sure, I have heard the dreaded “C” word, ‘communist“, but like the word itself nobody in the media has ever told me why communism is bad, why a country that chooses communism as an economic system is a threat to me or any American for that matter, or why the people of that nation should be made to suffer because they are not capitalists.

I hear the word “communist” used as an insult constantly, but I never heard anyone who uses that word explain why a communist should be considered an enemy of the United States forget an enemy of mine! I have never been threatened by a communist. The capitalist system on the other hand has scared the hell out of me. The IRS has harassed me about returns that they claim I did not send. I feared for my life for the three or so years that I went without health insurance. My credit card company started charging me $10 for paying my bill over the phone. I see veterans who risked their lives for our nation living on the streets in this country. I see people all over who can’t read, can’t do math, are absolutely clueless about what goes on in the world, and I am watching the cost of an education skyrocket to a point where only a very small percentage of the population in this nation will be able to afford an education; a rather pathetic development for a proud nation with any hope of a future. Yet for some reason I am told all the time that Cuba is my enemy! Why Cuba?

I can surely understand arguments against communist systems. I don’t necessarily think a communist system is good, nor do I think unregulated capitalism is good. The game of Monopoly represents unregulated capitalism and we all know that in Monopoly everyone looses except for the last survivor. That’s capitalism. Actually that is what George W. Bush means when he uses the code-speak term “freedom”. Bush is pushing for economic freedom, as in free of regulations. Free markets where the rich and the haves always win. He is not talking about freedom for you and me to live happy lives. Bush is talking about an “ownership society” but he does not mention who exactly will be owning society when he is done providing the “economic freedom” for the rich to finish life’s big game of Monopoly! In the meantime I am still trying to figure out how Cuba threatens me.

The other day I heard one of the establishment cronies, Democratic Senator Joe Biden, do his part in the mindfucking of our nation by throwing Venezuela into a comment about America’s enemies. Of course he did not provide a reason as to why Venezuela is our enemy. Joe was doing his part in sending out a subliminal message to anyone listening: “Venezuela bad, Venezuela bad!” Venezuela is the new Cuba in that we Americans are being told that they are our enemy every single day by the establishment and their foot soldiers in the media yet nobody will tell us why Venezuela is bad. They may tell us an out of context story about how Chavez insults George W. Bush but they never tell us what leads up to those events. They won’t tell us about how Chavez is taking his nation back from the global ruling elite, otherwise known as the international bankers. Nobody tells us that Chavez is a target because he took is nation out of debt. This is like pissing off the Godfather because you paid off the loan shark. You see Chavez no longer owes the Godfather anything anymore and that really pisses off the Godfather. The Godfather, in the case of Venezuela is the ruling elite and that is a fact. If the US backs a coup or an assassination in Venezuela you can bet the first thing that will happen is a loan will be made by the World Bank or the IMF so that they can “build” and “establish democracy” (otherwise known as economic free trade….you know…freedom;-).

Chavez is quietly becoming the world’s last hope in battling the ruling elite or the New World Order. You see he is empowering his people. As a matter of fact he is helping the South American continent to stand up to the exploitation of America and the international bankers who are in the process of setting up a one world government. Chavez has paid off Venezuela’s debts and has told the international bankers to get the hell out of his nation. He saved his people from the inextinguishable debt that causes a nation to relinquish it’s sovereignty to a private group of financiers. You know, the same way the Federal Reserve pretty much controls the US and how people like Bush are put in power in order to maintain or increase that debt so that the American taxpayer will forever fork over a huge chunk of their wealth just to pay the interest! That’s why wars are started; because wars are the most expensive endeavor a nation can undertake and that means more debt and more money owed to the bankers. Bush & Cheney are insiders. They are in like kids I grew up with who used to drive around with a bb gun popping out car windows because their father owned an auto glass store in the neighborhood! Only they don’t break windows, they start wars! They forced America into an endless war; the ultimate jackpot for the bankers!

The formula: take one “New Pearl Harbor” (and if one does not happen on it’s own create your own!) This will create fear. Part one is essential for without it the rest of the plan is dead. So above all, no matter what happens, you must ensure that the initial “catastrophic and catalyzing event” takes place. Next get the scared people to pay up by telling them that you need the money to protect them. Scared people will give anything to be safe; money, freedom, anything; this has been proven over and over throughout history. Then start a war that creates more enemies, that you will have to protect those same frightened people from! Then ask for more money and ask people to relinquish more rights so that you can protect them! What a brilliant business plan!

Now you have to pay for your protection FOREVER! That’s right, your taxes go towards paying a private bank (the Federal Reserve) interest on all of the loans taken out for the costs of protecting you, by an intentionally financially irresponsible (or complicit) Congress and/or president even though the US has the sole Constitutional authority to print money (and the Federal Reserve DOES NOT) and the US can lend itself money at absolutely no interest…if it so pleased! Friends, this is what started the American Revolution! Taxation without representation! America was started to get away from the Bank of England, another private bank that held the UK hostage, as does the Federal Reserve with America!

So getting back to my initial point…I’ll tell you who is my enemy, anyone that tries to tell me that Venezuela or Cuba is my enemy and does not follow that comment up with a clear and complete explanation as to why that is the case. Joe Biden is more of an enemy to me that Chavez and that is a fact!

So I ask you once again…why the hell am I supposed to consider Cuba and Venezuela my enemies when, as you can see from reading my rant, there are plenty of American enemies for me to really fear. And let me tell you this, America has no enemy greater than the establishment media for it is their cloak of secrecy that permit those other enemies domestic to assault our democracy, our freedom and our word! Think about it!

Then, get your information from TvNewsLIES, not the corporate entertainment networks.

How Long Do We Continue the Farce of George W. Inspector Clouseau Bush?

Friday, January 5th, 2007

Is there even a single person reading this who feels intellectually inferior to George W. Bush?

From the moment George W. Bush seized office after the electoral coup of 2000, his puppet masters, you know, the ones who spent the prior two years teaching him the difference between a country and a continent, did everything in their power to make him look like a real president. They even went as far as to reverse the 1986 the Goldwater-Nichols Defense Reorganization Act that added a new level of commander-in-chief to our military ranking system. These regional commanders-in-chief were created to bring a local supreme commander directly to a military conflict. The most well-known commander in chief was the head of CENTCOM during the first invasion of Iraq, Norman Schwarzkopf. In order to make the once AWOL from military duty George W. Bush look more presidential Donald Rumsfeld decided to reserve that special important sounding title for the little boy who was “in charge” of every single decision on Earth, George W. Bush, the sage leader of the free world! The same sage leader who could not find China on a map (of China!)

Reference: On October 24, 2002, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld announced that the title of “Commander-in-Chief” would thereafter be reserved for the President, consistent with the terms of Article II of the United States Constitution. Armed forces CINCs in specified regions would thereafter be known as “combatant commanders,” heading the Unified Combatant Commands.

Could you imagine someone taking Schwarzkopf’s title from him for no other reason that to make George W. Ignoramus Bush stand out from the other big kids in the playground! Could you imagine Clinton getting away with this? Well you ditto heads…what would you say if Clinton had done that? While your at it ask yourself what you would have said if Clinton was “in charge”, and on vacation, again, when the alleged 9/11 warnings were pouring in? Maybe then you would actually do your duty as an American citizen and start looking at the 9/11 related evidence and you would all of a sudden understand that 9/11 could indeed possibly be an inside job and it is not blaspheme to explore the evidence!

So who actually came up with this initiative? Rumsfeld? Wasn’t he busy with real work? What was the point? There is only one reason to do something like this; insecurity. How childish. Then again we are talking about a child. An intellectual child. George W. Bush; the American president who can’t complete a sentence. The embarrassment of a human being who if not for his fortunate blood line may have problems meeting the qualifications to secure a job handing out free passes to strip joints on a New York City street corner.

We are living in the most surreal period in human history. Having George W. Bush continue in his illegally assumed role as a US president has got to be the closest thing to having the Peter Sellers character, Inspector Jacques Clouseau (from the Pink Panther movies) actually come to life and get promoted to Chief Inspector! Did you ever see the Pink Panther movies? Do you remember how the intelligent people around Clouseau behaved? Could you sense their bewilderment at how such a buffoon could become a police officer, let alone rise to the rank of Chief Inspector, as did the Sellers character eventually? Don’t you feel like those people? Is there even a single person reading this who feels that they are intellectually inferior to George W. Bush? Is there anyone who can read who is intellectually inferior to George W. Bush?

Well my friends, this is not a funny movie. Our planet, democracy, freedom, health, welfare and way of life hinge on decisions being made by this real life Clouseau! How long are we going to play along? How much irreversible harm can we take before we say enough is enough? This stopped being funny the moment it started. Now it is becoming progressively deadly!

We are told by the people who sell this surrealistic existence to us as the real deal, the US criminal corporate media, that George W. Bush is actually the person who is making decisions about things like war. We are told that this jackass is the actual person who has reserved the right for our government to read our personal mail and declare us to be an enemy of the United States, based on his sole judgment! Our freedom hinges on that imbecile’s judgment! How are we sitting still for all of this? I have to hand it to the media because if they were any less diligent in hiding reality from the American people we would have had a revolution and tossed out every single human being that is participating in this farce! And we would have hanged every member of the media, a la Saddam, because they deserve it for allowing this to go on!

Holy cow, what world am I living in? Am I really awake? Am I on a bad acid trip? Am I in the middle of the longest nightmare in human history? Who is going to believe this crazy dream I am having! Somebody please wake me up! For Pete’s sake, somebody please wake me up! 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

Trickle Down Ignorance

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

Posted by Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

This morning, an AP article brought out the schoolmarm in me. There’s such little awareness of American history on the part of so many in this country, that this story ticked me off to the point of having to share my thoughts. So, here goes:

The AP reported that the US government has plans to revise many of the civics questions asked of immigrants as part of the process of becoming American citizens.

The article cited one of the questions on the present test as being: What was the Emancipation Proclamation? It then explained that current applicants need to know that it freed the slaves.

NO IT DID NOT. The Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 3, 1863, at a very critical moment of the war. In a very calculated move, he declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.”

But the Proclamation did NOT free a single slave in any state on either side of the conflict. In fact, it:

1. Declared slaves to be free ONLY in states that had seceded from the Union, and over whose freedom his government had no control whatsoever.

2. Allowed slavery to continue in the Border States that were loyal to the Union, (the slave holding states of Maryland and Delaware), where slavery could have been ended.

3. Exempted parts of the Confederacy that were under Union control at that time, and where slavery also could have been ended, and was not.

4. Made the promise of freedom dependent on a Union victory, which was by no means a guarantee at the time.

So, while being an important document that influenced the War Between the States considerably, no slave was immediately freed as a result of its existence, nor was the intent of the Emancipation Proclamation to actually end slavery at the time it was issued..

And that historical truth, which is, or should be taught to school children everywhere in the United States, has been sorely distorted by those who would teach new Americans about such an important era in our history. Alfonso Aguilar, the director of the citizenship office wants applicants to have “a better understanding of America’s history and government institutions.”

He really is not off to a very commendable good start. Ignorance at the top is not only embarrassing, it is unforgivable.

Unqualified Americans

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

America is about to revamp the test that immigrants will have to pass in order to become American citizens. I got news for our anti-foreigner government…foreigners know more about America than most Americans! I defy our government to force every heartland redneck to take this test. As a matter of fact I would like to see every member of Congress take this test.  I want to see how many Americans are deported because they can’t answer basic questions about their native country! While we’re at it I would like to remind many Americans that making English the official language of America may criminalize many Americans; you know…the flag waving redneck anti-foreigner Americans who can not construct a single sentence using correct grammar as defined by the rules of the English language.

I’m all for setting reasonable requirements for American citizenship but I don’t think being born in this nation should exempt people from meeting those requirements. So by all means…test away!   Think about it!

The War in Iraq IS the ECONOMY, Stupid!

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Is everybody in this nation an idiot? What will it take to detoxify us from the mindset created by the criminal U.S. news media? They keep telling us things that sound reasonable until we spend about eight seconds thinking about what they tell us. That is why I tell my readers to “think about it”  every single day!

We are now being told that the voters of this nation (who will not have their votes counted because we are living under a coup brought to you via electronic voting, etc), consider the war in Iraq (which should more accurately be called the invasion of Iraq), a more important issue than the economy in their evaluation of candidates this vote stealing season. (Yes, I said vote stealing; we have not had a legitimate election this century!…Think about THAT!)

Well, the reality is that the Iraq war is perhaps the biggest economical issue that our nation faces and every single American other than the Bush/Cheney cabal of war and energy profiteers are suffering the financial effects of the invasion of Iraq! For every dollar that is spent on destroying Israel’s enemy for them a dollar is taken from a program that would benefit Americans. From health care, to food for the poor, to fire fighting, to school teachers, to roads, to pollution, to researching new sustainable clean energy sources to anything and everything that would make our lives better the financial costs of invading Iraq have had dramatically negative effects.

Then there are the costs associated with rebuilding our depleted military. That’s great for the war profiteers who started this thing; you know: the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rice/PNAC cabal. What about the costs of taking care of the Iraq war vets and helping those who suffer permanent injuries or mental trauma. Oops, I am sorry, you can forget that one! America does not take care of their vets. Especially Americans who start wars. As a matter of fact they CUT funding for taking care of vets, so please forgive me for mentioning that one!

While you support the record profits of Exxon Mobile and Chase Bank (as they increase fees for everything except saying the word “Chase”; and that fee may not be far off thanks to the criminal syndicate known as the U.S. Congress), your tax dollars are being used on everything, except you! The Iraq invasion was the most costly crime committed so far by the invaders (the PNAC/Bush cabal), who took over this nation via electoral coup and with eight seconds of thinking anyone would realize this! So to my enemies in the media I say this: TvNewsLIES readers know that IRAQ IS THE ECONOMY; STUPID! Think about it!

Another “What the Hell Does That Mean” George W. Bush Moment

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

Bush, of people, is on TV now speaking about education. He just proclaimed another George W. Bush historical philosophical principle by declaring that “measuring is the gateway to success.” Sure, if you are a carpenter or a tailor! Bush was referring to his testing requirements in his “no child left behind” program. This was another one of his “what the hell does that mean” comments that Bush has uttered over the years; the ones where the room and media sit silent as not one single person can make sense of what he just said. “Measuring is the gateway to success?” What the hell does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means even if the entire media won’t! It means that George W. Bush’s brother Neil will be very successful if we continue to measure the progress of our students because he sells the testing materials to the schools!

Bush, in another one of his brilliant observations informed the public during this speech that we live in a “global world!” Really? You mean all the flat Earth talk is wrong? He went on to say that we must compete with the likes of China and India when it comes to education. OK…that I can agree with. I would love to see American schools and families dedicate themselves to education the same way the Chinese do, or even the way Indians do. I would love to visit my parents house, which is across the street from my old grade school and two blocks away from my old high school, and I would like to see one student pass their home who is carrying a sack of books as I used to when I went to that same high school. I would like to see a single student carrying ten dollars worth of books instead of $500 worth of consumer electronics, $250 sneakers and an $8 pack of cigarettes. If Bush wants to compete with China, maybe we should call in education professionals from China who already have a winning track record in education instead of continuing the corporatization of our education system by people who have but one goal in mind when it comes to educating Americans and that is to profit from it.   Think about it!
