Operation Iraqi Takeover Hits a Dead End (For Now)

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Note: This article appears in full on our new site, under Reggie’s Thoughts.

It’s not on the network news programs, because, in fact – it’s kind of secret.  Even the
print media, where they’ve covered a bit of this story, don’t know very much about it.  Whatever it is, U.S. officials refuse comment on the details.  Even members of Congress are out of the loop, but it really does sound super!

It’s got one of those feel good Bushco names, - you know – like the Patriot Act, No Child Left Behind, Clear Skies, and – of course, Operation Iraqi Freedom.  All these clever captions successfully sold Americans some really toxic legislation, and anesthetized their free fall into dictatorship and economic collapse.

So what’s to worry about a US-Iraq Security Pact with our good buddies in Iraq?

Heck, Americans want security and surely Iraqis want security, - and don’t we all just want to get along? It does sound eerily comforting after so many years of killing and maiming, so maybe our compassionate leader and his cohorts are really working to provide us with peace and prosperity after all.  So why all the behind-closed-doors stuff?  And why, after months of bargaining has it come to a no-deal dead end?

Lets’ take a look at what we do know… with a one important caveat.  George W. Bush and his neocon handlers will make sure that the American public believes that Iran is behind this failure, while Bomb, Bomb Iran is played as background music to their claim. Don’t buy it.  Iran is surely frightened that this pact might succeed, and for very good reasons is pressuring Prime Minister Nouri Al- Maliki to develop a backbone and reject it.

But Iran is NOT behind what’s going on,

Bear in mind that ‘negotiations’ between the US and Iraq that began last November.  The story remained pretty much under the radar until earlier this month when a British paper leaked details of the ‘secret’ agreement between the US and Iraq.  Just as suddenly, Iraqi legislators began to wail loudly about being railroaded into an agreement they did not want and could not accept.  Here’s a recap of what went on:

So When Will Bush Bomb Israel?

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

I am sitting here watching George W. Bush talk about Iran having a covert nuclear weapons program that they still have not disclosed today. He is telling us that they are dangerous because of this. He emphasized that Iran has tested long range missiles. Well, all of those things apply to Israel too. As a matter of fact Israel supposedly has a stockpile of 200 or so nuclear weapons. When do we bomb them?

Of course I’ll watch my e-mail for unsubscribe messages, because there are many people out there that want to hear the truth, except when it comes to Israel. But let me tell you something my friend, one needs to look no further than Israel when it comes to American foreign policy hypocrisy. From nuclear proliferation to out right deplorable human rights violations, America’s blind and active support for Israel stands as a wonderful example of how our nation talks out of one side of its proverbial mouth! I hope those who take offense to my using Israel as an example take the time to actually pay attention to what goes on in this world when it comes to Israel.

The hypocrisy of this nation has only been surpassed by the hypocrisy of the Bush administration. I really never thought American hypocrisy would surpassed by anything in my lifetime. Oh, was I ever wrong! Think about it! Jesse Richard

Five Easy Pieces to Iran

Sunday, September 9th, 2007

A Warning from Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

The Jigsaw to Armageddon

Yeah, folks, you can bet the ranch: we’re going in. I’ve heard all the arguments from the nay sayers, so let that go. We are going in.

This is deja  vu time, for sure, as we look back on the months before Shock and Awe, when so many of us tried to warn the nation about the coming catastrophe in Iraq. But those of us who shouted went unheard and those of us who marched in protest went unseen. Yet in the end we were right on the mark.

And so, we’ll try again. This time, we’ll set out five easy pieces of a doomsday jigsaw puzzle that easily can be assembled if you take the time to do so. As in any such puzzle, the separate parts might be interesting, but not significant in themselves. But once assembled, the full picture emerges, where none could be seen before.

Each piece of this puzzle contains disturbing evidence that Bushco intends to unleash a massive, and possibly nuclear attack on Iran in the very near future. Examined separately, the pieces might seem unsettling but not calamitous. But when all of the pieces are viewed in correct perspective, when they interlock to form a complete picture, the final image is undeniable:

The puzzle we have pieced together reveals a very frightening picture: It is very plausible that in a very short time, most assuredly before the next presidential election, the murderous men in charge of US foreign policy may unleash Armageddon on us all.

Five Easy Pieces:

PIECE ONE: The Neocons.

  • Between 1997 and 2000, the founders of the Project for a New American Century laid out their plans for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein and the need for US military domination of the Middle East.
  • In a 1996 letter to President Bill Clinton, they wrote: The only acceptable strategy is one that eliminates the possibility that Iraq will be able to use or threaten to use weapons of mass destruction. In the near term, this means a willingness to undertake military action as diplomacy is clearly failing. In the long term, it means removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from power. That now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy.
  • In 2000, their treatise on Rebuilding America’s Defenses stated that “the United States must retain sufficient forces able to rapidly deploy and win multiple simultaneous large-scale wars.”
  • In a letter to President George W. Bush immediately after 9/11, they wrote:even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power.
  • And after the 2000 theft of office, more than a dozen members of PNAC, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle and others, assumed high level positions in the Bush administration. To this day, many of the PNAC neocons continue to be largely responsible for formulating American foreign policy.

PIECE TWO: The Warning

  • On February 1st, 2007, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on Iraq that attracted little public attention and that received hardly any mainstream media coverage. Testifying before the committee was Zbigniew Brzezinski, the prominent political scientist, geostrategist and statesman who had served as United States National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter
  • A long time critic of the war in Iraq, Brzezinski referred to the Iraq invasion as “a historic, strategic, and moral calamity, undertaken under false assumptions, [and] undermining America’s global legitimacy.” But far more important than this characterization of Bush’s ˜war of choice” was his unmistakable warning about what was in the works.
  • • The official transcript of Brzezinski’s testimony includes this devastating warning:

If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large. A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a “defensive” U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Was anyone listening?

PIECE THREE: Getting Ready

  • An ominous segment of the PNAC treatise states that the preferred weapon for punitive raids is the cruise missile, supplemented by stealthy strike aircraft and longer-range Air Force strike aircraft. Carrier aircraft are most useful in sustaining a campaign begun with missiles and stealth strike aircraft, indicating that a surface action group capable of launching several hundred cruise missiles is the most valuable naval presence in the Gulf.
  • On February 25th, 2007 a journalist for the British newspaper The Telegraph reported from on board the USS Eisenhower en route to the Persian Gulf. In an article entitled American Armada Prepares to Take on Iran,  Damien McElroy described the carrier as “Four and a half acres of American power in the Arabian sea,”
  • On June 13, 2007, news services reported that another carrier had joined other U.S. carrier groups in Gulf. The nuclear-powered USS Enterprise, which became part of a rotating carrier presence in the region, is the longest naval vessel in the world and carries 66 aircraft.
  • And, for icing on the cake, - on September 10, 2007 the US announced it’s intentions to build a military base on the Iraq-Iran border. According to the report, “The push also includes construction of fortified checkpoints on the major highways leading from the Iranian border to Baghdad and the installation of X-ray machines and explosives-detecting sensors at the only formal border crossing between Iran and Iraq.”
  • Then came that really scary headline at FOX News [sic] on September 12th : US Officials Begin Crafting Iran Bombing Plan. That story was sandwiched between the Petraeus testimony raising Iran above Al Qaeda as the villain in Iraq and George Bush’s corroboration of the new bogey man in his speech to the nation.

Do the math.

PIECE FOUR: Nuclear madness

  • Background: The first of the three documents which made up the post 9/11 U.S. nuclear posture was delivered to the. Congress by the DOD in January, 2002. Titled the U.S. Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), the document authorized the potential use of nuclear weapons. in various contingencies, including against non-nuclear weapons states and in response to conventional weapons.
  • In other words, this official declaration of US military policy states that the United States may use nuclear weapons as it would any other weapon.
  • Reality check: On September 5th, 2007, six nuclear warheads on cruise missiles were mistakenly carried on a flight from North Dakota to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. Please, please, for the sake of this nation and the world, try to understand the significance of this ˜accidental” move. Larry Johnson raises a very vital question in his article at TMP CAFE. He explains that Barksdale AFB is not simply a landing field. Rather, it is a major jumping off point for US operations in the Middle East, and wonders whether this story might not have been leaked by military personnel concerned about plans for staging a nuclear attack against Iran.
  • Johnson writes: What is certain is that the pilots of this plane did not just make a last minute decisionto strap on some nukes and take them for a joy ride. We need some tough questions and clear answers. What the hell is going on?

What the hell, for sure. Someone was willing to violate the long standing cold war treaty that prohibited the transporting of armed missiles by air.

Wonder why.

PIECE FIVE: The Hype

  • We’ve all been there and done that. In 2002 we had the White House Iraq Group writing copy for the complicit corporate media to sell the war to a terrified and vulnerable public It worked then, and may well work again as a new campaign is under way to beat the drums for a new war.
  • At TvNewsLIES.org we thought an attack against Iran would begin sooner, but apparently the thugs in Washington still have some glitches to work out. But it’s time to get the lap dogs in the media to soften up the public for a new adversary. Bush/Cheney/PNAC has run out of bogey men for the moment, and it’s getting too close to an election which might just take away their momentum.
  • • How about this: The August 23rd, 2007 issue of New Yorker Magazine ran a story saying that Dick Cheney has given orders for a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day. The campaign purportedly will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, Murdoch’s new acquisitions - FOX and the Wall Street Journal - as well as the PNAC mouthpiece, Weekly Standard, and other media outlets. It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, claims the reporter, and is designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained.
  • The information came from Barnett Rubin, a well known and highly respected Afghanistan expert at New York University who received corroboration concerning the accuracy of the piece from someone at a neocon think tank.

Watch for it and see where it goes this time around

Placing the Pieces

Let’s see, now. Is it possible to piece together these five puzzle pieces and end up with a lovely picture of peace and harmony in the world? Sure it is. On the other hand, is it not only possible, but far more probable that the image on the completed puzzle board will actually be one of horrific disaster?

At this moment, I don’t really care whether or not anyone out there has bought into the official story of 9/11 or not. I really don’t care if you are convinced that anyone in power in the United States could actually orchestrate an attack on his or her own people.

I do care, however, that someone with decades of experience in government and a first hand look at the inside machinations of foreign policy has publicly warned us that a plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran.

I do care that Presidential Directive 51, issued in May of 2007 gives George W. Bush full charge of every existing government agency in the event of any occurrence he personally deems ˜catastrophic.”

I do care that the Five Easy Pieces presented in this article include vital information that is factual and well documented and undisputed, yet are not considered newsworthy by our failed media.

I do care that the pieces appear to fit together easily, and that the image that is emerging scares me to death.

You might want to put the pieces together on your own and see what happens.

Peace and tranquility or Armageddon. You decide.

Note: Most sincere kudos to Webster Tarpley whose extraordinary talk at a recent meeting of 9/11- Ready for Mainstream inspired this article. His documented and detailed analysis of the danger of an imminent US attack on Iran has been incorporated into this simplified but equally dire warning.

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!

The Infamous “al Qaeda Linked” Terrorists = 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Monday, May 28th, 2007

If the Bush administration and the establishment media had their way, every American would think of the famous rock star of the 60’s, Chubby Checker (of “the Twist” fame), any time anyone mentioned Kevin Bacon’s name. That’s right, the Bush administration and the US media would describe Kevin Bacon as “linked to Chubby Checker” because Chubby Checker was in the movie “Purple People Eater” with Dustin Diamond who was in the TV show “Saved by the Bell: The New Class”, with Michal Worth, who was in the movie “Acapulco H.E.A.T.”, with John Veron, who was in the movie “Animal House” with none other than Kevin Bacon. The link can not be denied. The link is clear and as Dick Cheney would say. “pretty much confirmed!”

Now many of you know that the “Kevin Bacon equation of association”, or as I like to call it A=KB-6, (Association = Kevin Bacon 6 times removed), comes from the grassroots phenomenon known as Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. It is a trivia game where someone names an actor and the players have to find a link to Keven Bacon based on the type of association that I used in the prior paragraph. It’s a fun game, and for the most part any knowledgeable movie buff can pretty much find a link between Kevin Bacon and just about any major actor of our generation.

So goes the logic that brings us the infamous “al Qaeda” linked terrorist. You see in the eyes of the Bush administration and according to the clearly complicit establishment media, the word “link” is used in its most literal interpretation. All one has to do in order to tag someone with a link to al Qaeda is to apply the A=KB-6 equation. When you use that equation it does not take much to qualify for being linked to al Qaeda these days, unless you are a member of the Bush family. You know, the same Bush family that has direct, official and “pretty much confirmed” links to the bin Laden family. You know…the bin Laden family that has “pretty much confirmed” links to the member of the bin Laden family known as Osama bin Laden. But that link doesn’t really count! Not to the establishment media, anyway.

The big difference between using the A=KB-6 equation to tag someone as an al Qaeda terrorist, and playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is that when you play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon you have to elaborate and define the link, in complete detail, before you are given credit for your accusation. But the Bush administration and the criminal establishment media simply make a declaration that the link exists and they are done. They do not have to define the link in any way, and the public, so brainwashed by the establishment media, does not even think to question the claim. We are not sure how many hops have to be made until you see an actual connection. Then again, we are not exactly sure what the definitive heart of “al Qaeda” is, so we are not sure what link we have to reach in order to establish the actual connection.

One of the many problems with this scenario is that an idiot like Elizabeth Hasselbeck of the TV show “The View” repeats that link on TV to justify her approval for the Bush administration’s obliteration of Iraq as she argues with Rosie O’Donnell over the killing of innocent civilians by US troops. Then the millions of people who watch “The View” repeat Hasselbeck’s unsubstantiated claims of al Qaeda linked entities in Iraq, even though the links are never actually defined for these people and these people never bother to question the claims for themselves. But we all know that we should simply believe people on TV who show support for whatever our government is doing…otherwise they are not patriots! Right? Actually, that is a separate issue…but technically, by virtue of the A=KB-6 equation, it is connected to this discussion;-)

There is an episode of the cartoon South Park where the kids who star in the show are taken on a hunting trip with a couple of gung-ho gun freak hunters. You know, kind of like Dick Cheney, only these guys don’t murder, they hunt. (Cheney murders animals…he goes on so called hunting trips, but what really happens is that is he goes to farms and the owners of the farms release caged animals in the form of birds that can not even fly, a few dozen yards from Cheney, so that he can satisfy is psychopathic thirst for death by murdering a hundred or so of them.) Anyway, the gung-ho South Park hunters pretty much shoot any animal they want to, without hunting permits, even if the animal is out of season and poses no threat to the hunters. But the hunters taught the kids how to get around the law when it comes to killing things illegally and when it is not warranted by self defense; just prior to opening fire the hunter has to yell out “LOOK OUT, IT’S HEADED RIGHT TOWARDS US!” You see, this way the illegal kills made by the hunters appears to be justified by self defense. Technically the hunters can say that the animal appeared to pose a threat to them, even if the animal was a baby rabbit or something like that. Pretty smart, huh?

The Bush administration and the US media use the South Park hunting justification argument in their never ending war on humanity. I call it the “applying the terror tag”. And there is no better terror tag to apply to your target than one that reads “al Qaeda!” Yes, the mysterious mystical “al Qaeda” organization, whatever that may be, scares the b’jeezus out of the average uninformed American. So all you have to do in order to justify a kill these days is use the Kevin Bacon equation of association. Find a link between your target and “al Qaeda”, no matter how many degrees of separation exist, place your tag, have the media announce the link and start shooting! It is a clear formula, easily followed and proven effective on the catatonic viewers of the establishment media.

So, you see, today’s claimed “al Qaeda linked” targets of the Bush administration are just as linked to al Qaeda as Kevin Bacon is linked to boxing promoter Don King! (Look it up…it’s there;-) I made sure to “pretty much confirm” my claim! But what exactly do these links actually mean? Do they mean anything at all? Think about it!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: In a Room Without a View

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I have got to hand it to the folks over at FOX News. These establishment cronies masquerading as journalists have convinced America that journalism and reality itself are fair and balanced. They have the American people believing that there is always two sides to every issue and that every issue discussed in a public forum must allow equal time and representation to both sides and that countering “opinions” merit equal consideration.

The truth is that reality is rarely balanced. If it is raining outside you can not report that it is not raining just for the sake of being fair and balanced. Practicing “balanced” coverage of reality in essence distorts reality. This is dangerous. It prevents the public from accurately assessing important issues. It is like having one friend tell you not to drink and drive. They tell you the very real facts about how alcohol impairs your vision, affects your reflexes and is responsible for the overwhelming majority of vehicular homicides. Then, just to be balanced you listen to another persons who tells you that it is OK to drive because you only had a few drinks and you only live a few blocks away and so on and so on. Then they cite statistics that show that driving fatalities are caused by many things, not only alcohol and because they found a source for this information that does not view deaths related to drinking and driving as real “homicides”, the numbers look different. That’s balanced, but is it really the kind of balance that we need in this world? Do we really need an opinion that is clearly wrong and clearly dangerous just for the sake of having balance?

Following FOX News’ pathetically unrealistic precedent, the ABC daytime talk show called The View decided that they had to “balance” the reality and common sense provided by Joy Behar and Rosie O’Donnell with the idiocy and blind establishment parroting of Elisabeth Hasslebeck. Sometimes ignorance is dangerous. In the case of Ms. Hasslebeck ignorance is not only dangerous, but it is painfully embarrassing. I don’t watch the program often, but I do tune in from time to time, mostly to hear a rare sound byte of reality on an establishment controlled broadcast. This reality usually comes from Joy Behar or Rosie O’Donnell about issues like 9/11, the Bush administration or Iraq. On these rare occasions I have witnessed the most embarrassing example of a typical American citizen who is completely oblivious to the realities of the world; Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Personally I have not heard a single sentence uttered by this Republican talking point TIVO machine that I could not personally shred and expose as partial information, incomplete information, out of context information or a fabricated misrepresentation of known, officially acknowledged and in most cases undisputed reality.

Now before anyone thinks that I believe that the problem with Ms. Hasslebeck stems from the fact that she utters Republican talking points as opposed to uttering Democratic talking points…do some homework. Research me. Read my writings. This is not about left vs. right. This about a little fairy tales known as American Democracy and the wonderful do no wrong history of the United States of America. Folks, official undisputed history paints a very different picture of the world than the establishment media does. I expose media deception as my profession. I do it full time. I can not explain this claim or back it up in one blog entry. I can however offer to debate anybody on this issue, on TV, with the establishment media big shots. So before anyone ‘discredits’ this article or my opinion, keep in mind that I would gladly be a guest on The View, 60 Minutes, FOX News, CNN, etc, and I would gladly show the world how these media criminals are the greatest threat to American freedom and democracy. In essence I can show Americans that the media is our enemy. I don’t tell people this, I show people this. There is a difference. I offer to back up everything I say, in person, on TV. Even on The View.

Now back to The View. Consider the definition of “balance” in context to the meaning intended by FOX News or our current crop of establishment media criminals: “a state of equilibrium or parity characterized by cancellation of all forces by equal opposing forces.” Taking that definition into account in order to provide balance to “reality”, “truth” or “facts,” you would need something radically “unreal” or “baseless.” Enter Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Here you have the counter balance, if you will, to the legitimate fact based information provided to viewers of the television program The View by Joy Behar and Rosie O’Donnell. What about Barbara Walters you say? Well, Ms. Walters, just like a great many so called journalists and media personalities, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Like the other members of the media who are also part of this secretive organization, Ms. Walters does not inform her viewers about her association with the CFR and like the rest of the CFR members she is not allowed to discuss what goes on at the CFR. Keep in mind that a journalist is supposed to be a professional tattle tale. The Constitution protects journalists (the only profession protected by the Constitution) so that journalists can report back to the people what their elected officials are doing. They are not suppose to join secret organizations that are a very big, yet secretive part of our government apparatus, and then not tell the people what goes on. So to the question “what about Barbara Walters.”, my answer is…I consider her the enemy. She probably knows much more about what has taken place in this world than she has reported to her viewers and I am sure some of the things she has helped to keep secret or to played an active role in deceiving the public about would cause you to agree with my sentiments.

Reality has never been as unbalanced as it is now when it comes to the government of the United States. There is an endless list of disturbing “FACTS”, make that alarming facts related to the Bush administration when it comes to stolen elections, the events of 9/11, lying to start wars, eroding our rights, eliminating our freedom, human rights violations, weakening our nation, obliterating world opinion of our nation, etc. (Again…I offer to back up my claims on TV…but for now you can see the hundreds of pages of documented evidence on the TvNewsLIES.org web site.) We don’t need balance. We need reality. We need to discuss exactly what takes place in the world. We don’t need opinion, we need information. Providing us with this information is the Constitutional obligation of the press. The media should be informing us about what is happening, not exposing us to opinions or counter opinions about what is happening. Joy & Rosie provide us with information. Yes, I know that the information is delivered in an emotional politically charged wrapping, but they provide information none the less; a rarity for TV these days. Elisabeth repeats government talking points. That is not what the media is there for. The media is there to question government, not provide it with free advertising.

So I ask you this…do we really need Elisabeth Hasselbeck “distorting The View just for the sake of balance? Think about it!

What Makes Black Ops Legal?

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Hello police? I want to report a possible crime in the White House. Oh, it’s out of your jurisdiction? Whom can I call to report this? Nobody? Oh, this is America and there is no place to report crimes committed by the President.”

When a US president orders the CIA to interfere with the internal affairs of another nation, help fix foreign elections or instigate, support or conduct political coups by way of military takeovers or assassinations, is he breaking the law? Where is it written in our Constitution that a president can use our tax money to break international law or to mess with the political systems of other nations, including nations with democratic rule?

I wonder how the American people would feel about their nation if they understood the history of US involvement in international affairs. I wonder how they would feel if they knew that at one time the US covertly supported most of the people or nations that eventually end up being America’s greatest enemies. From the assassination of Chile’s Allende and al Qaeda’s roots as the CIA trained forces in Afghanistan (supported to defeat the Russians), to the Shah of Iran to the financial support of Hitler and his war machine (thank George W. Bush’s grandfather for that one), America’s conduct around the world, using our tax money, is responsible for some pretty bad things.

But the American people will never know what their nation actually does. The media work hand in hand with our leaders to create policy and decide what to tell the American people, if anything at all. If you need proof of this just look at the upcoming super secret Bilderberg meeting where world leaders meet with media owners to discuss issues like Iran. Media owners should not be meeting with policy makers, they should be reporting about policy makers. Here you have a long history of the media meeting in secret with leaders of the world to discuss global issues yet they do not report about these meetings. What do you think they are talking about? The media are there because they are in integral part of the establishment, they are not the journalists who are supposed to report to the people, not brain wash them.

So now we read about covert operations designed to destabilize Iran, and I ask…who asked me for my OK do spend my tax money this way. I think the funniest thing about America is that Americans believe that we live in a democracy. Yet when you ask Americans what part they play in this so called democracy all they say is that they vote. Well the few who vote say that. So once a year, or once every two to four years people go into a little booth and press some buttons or pop some chads from a punch card. That’s it. That’s the average American’s total involvement in this so called democracy. And in the meantime our leaders do whatever the hell they want to anyone they feel like messing with.

Democracy? Give me a break. 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!

Supporting the Troops Because They Protect Us: Two Big Lies

Saturday, April 14th, 2007

I was watching the Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV the other night, mostly because my body produces excess testosterone, and at one point during the program the fighters took magic markers and started writing things all over the walls of the house in which they lived. At one point someone wrote “We Support the Troops.” Then that person started mentioning how the fighters in the UFC support the troops who are out there fighting to “protect our freedom.” I laughed.

Well, just as this nice, well-meaning person commented on how he supports the troops, I, as I often do, spoke back to my TV set and said, “No, you don’t support the troops; you simply say and write on walls that you do  I thought to myself that this person should be more accurate and simply say, “I write on walls inside my home that I support the troops and that is all that I do in the way of supporting them!” I think people should just come out and tell the truth. They should have bumper stickers and signs on their homes and little ribbons that say, “I don’t do anything to support the troops except wear this ribbon, hang this sign or bumper system or say the words, ‘I support the troops!’  Let’s face it, that well-meaning UFC fighter is not doing a damn thing to support the troops.

Few people in this nation support the troops. One glance at staistics about our homeless veteran can tell you that. More than 200,000 veterans find themselves without a home at one point during any given year in this nation, and the Iraq invasion is going to help those numbers to grow.

That alone should show how Americans support their troops. But there is an even more sinister abuse of troop support in this nation in the form of “private for profit para-military corporations.” That’s right, while Americans want their Congress to give George W. Bush money to “support the troops”, the money goes not to the troops, not to the families of the troops, not to the injured and wounded troops, not to the emotionally traumatized troops and not to the homeless troops.

The bulk of the money goes to private para-military companies, owned and operated by friends and business associates and partners of the government officials who use the troops and your freedom as hostages as they extort the nation in to paying them huge sums of money.

From Dick Cheney’s Halliburton to Blackwater USA to the companies that manufacture tanks, helicopters, Humvees, bullets, you name it, the profiteers grow richer with every new effort by American citizens to actually support the troops. And the troops, while they keep dying, continue to be lied to by everyone in their command structure. And when they are no longer able to kill for the establishment, they are tossed aside like yesterday’s trash. Nobody supports the troops.

We must stop supporting the people who promote that false advertising; people such as Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and the majority of the US Congress.

Let’s stop this “support the troops” rhetoric. If you want to say you “appreciate the troops,” be my guest. That would be more accurate. I think we all pretty much appreciate the troops. But let’s face it, there are very few people in America who actually support the troops and many of those people are not the ones wearing ribbons.

Now, about the claim that those troops, all of whom I appreciate, are protecting our freedom… Let’s face it folks, since World War II hardly a troop was deployed, hardly single shot was fired, and hardly a life was lost while actually protecting our freedom or protecting us from a direct or potential threat. In my lifetime (I was born in 1964), not a single American died while actually protecting my freedom. On the contrary, many American troops died while they were engaged in combat that would in some way directly benefit the very people who have been working for generations to reduce my freedom.

There is no greater example of this than today’s so called war on terror. You may still remain blind to the very real probability that the 9/11 events were delivered to us by a rogue element within our government. But you cannot deny that the so-called “response” to those attacks only served to increase the risks to American lives, weaken our military, and was accompanied by an assault on the freedoms, liberties and rights of the American people the likes of which we have never seen.

It is the very presence of our military that has kept us safe. They serve as the world’s best deterrent, unmatched by any other. Their might, their power and the willingness of individuals to risk their lives are what keeps us safe from outside invaders. But threats come from within as well, and we are witnessing that today.

If the troops want to protect my freedom they should be protecting me from the people who threaten it. They should be protecting me from the people who are waging a war on the American people and our way of life by harming the U.S. Constitution. That would be the U.S. Constitution that the troops are sworn to protect. For the record, according to their oath, that promise come BEFORE their obligation to obey their Commander in Chief. They should be protecting me from the people who are trying to poison my air, contaminate my food supply, and create biological weapons that even by accident pose a threat to me and all life on earth. These days those threats are right here. They reside in Congress, in the White House and in secretive powerful organizations known as think tanks, secret societies, defense contractors and ?foundations.”

The troops are well meaning but they are brainwashed into thinking that they are doing noble things. This is because they have to believe in what they are doing if they are to do their job: kill people. These are not cold blooded people. They did not sign up to kill under false pretense. So you have to make them believe that they are protecting us when they drop their bombs and fire their weapons. Why do you think that there are information restrictions on active troops? Why do you think that access to many websites is blocked by military personnel. It’s so the troops accept the word of truth as delivered by their commanders without the facts getting in the way.

So to set the record straight, I appreciate the troops, and by the very nature of what I do, (informing the public about issues related to war & the military…for no financial compensation other than donations) I support the troops. But I want the troops to protect me. And unfortunately, by no fault of their own, and I repeat that, BY NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, they don’t, and in my lifetime they never have. My freedoms, my liberties, my security and my Constitutional rights are being threatened and harmed every day. So you can imagine how I would love to see the troops actually protect me for once. None the less, I still appreciate them. Think about it.

Dear Lou Dobbs, Who Owns the Federal Reserve?

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Note:  Please check out our new site at http://tvnewslies.org

It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. “ Henry Ford

May I suggest that everyone who reads this message send a letter to Lou Dobbs, Mr. American Middle Class Champion, and ask him to explain exactly who owns the Federal Reserve and why we allow the Federal Reserve to continue to control our entire economy. Then ask him why he, and everyone else in the media, have refused to explain this to the American people.

As Lou says every day: It’s time for answers!
Write to Lou Dobbs here:

The real answer to this question is that the Federal Reserve is like a big Mafia loan shark. It owns our nation in the same way a loan shark owns his “clients”! There is absolutely no difference between the two.

No matter what the situation, whenever there is news related to the Federal Reserve a big, loud, coordinated, conspiratorial lie of omission is committed by every single news outlet in our nation. What is this lie? it is keeping up the false impression that the Federal Reserve is part of our government! The Fed is a private, for profit bank, that controls our government and economy. They control the money supply, inflation, depression, recessions, etc. They are not accountable to Congress, the executive branch or anyone in government.

The revolutionary war was started primarily to get away from a similar situation in England where the Bank of England held the same control over their nation. Revolutionaries realized this and they put an end to it. Unfortunately some traitors in the Senate reversed our true liberation and now we have a private bank controlling our personal financial status.

Let me ask you a simple question: what country in its right mind would create a system that would force it to lend itself money and have to repay the money WITH INTEREST? What country would charge itself interest? What nation would put itself out of business by making it bankrupt because of interest? The answer is none! America is not charging itself interest on its debt, the privately owned central bankers are doing this and they are hiding in plain sight! Congress (with the exception of Ron Paul), every US president and every single member of the corporate media are either part of the conspiracy or just plain stupid!

Two presidents tried to stop this outrage and they were both assassinated. Lincoln was set to bypass the central banks in order to finance the Civil War. The banks were going to charge him 24-36% interest on the loans. So Lincoln had Congress pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender. These “treasury notes”  would be used to finance the war. Lincoln wrote: “… (we) gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had - their own paper money to pay their own debts…” Now go and research the person who supposedly killed Lincoln and how he relates to bankers.

After Lincoln was assassinated Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted the National Banking Act. The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest-bearing. The Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes.

John F. Kennedy was the next brave man to take on the Federal Reserve. On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy signed a Presidential Executive Order 11110. This order virtually stripped the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Government at interest. Kennedy declared the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. This order gave the Treasury Department the authority to issue silver certificates against any silver in the treasury. This executive order still stands today. No president since has had the courage to invoke it for it would mean their demise. The US government is a front for the real controllers: the central bankers.

Debt keeps the central banks in control of the world. Nations that eliminate their debt end up on the hit list. When you see nations “liberated” by the US or its allies what normally follows is a central bank extending loans to these liberated nations. The World Bank always comes to the rescue. What a joke - this is like having a loan shark come to the rescue of someone who needs food money for his kids!

War is the single biggest money making business for the central bankers. Nations go into tremendous debt to finance war. Interestingly enough, but in no way surprising to those of us who know better, the architects of both Vietnam and the Iraq invasion both went on to become the head of the World Bank; Robert McNamara and Paul Wolfowitz. It is the central banks that push the world towards military conflict.

Look at your paper money: the bills say “Federal Reserve Note”!  This is not an American currency backed by an asset. It is fiat currency backed by nothing.

The Federal Reserve is a private bank that owns the sole right to dictate monetary policy for our nation. This is the biggest scam and conspiracy on our planet and we must make this part of our daily discussion. Ask questions, and DEMAND answers!

Please start by writing to Lou Dobbs!

THE MONEY MASTERS

THE SECRET BIRTH OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE

Money As Debt

UPDATE: Some people have commented that the president of the United States appoints the head of the Federal Reserve and that is proof that the Fed is indeed part of the government. Well people, the president does present his selection to Congress for approval…but that selection comes from a list of candidates given to him by the Federal Reserve!!! It’s a show, people!

Kids…this is not a joke. It is also not a secret. It is public record…not a theory. The Fed is a private for profit bank that does not answer to Congress or the President and it is unconstitutional. It is another responsibility given to Congress by our Constitution that has been ignored or illegally assigned elsewhere by Congress; just as the power to declare war has been signed over to George W. Bush. Look it up…take a minute…this is a huge issue and one that should not be dismissed so quickly because you just became aware of it by reading a blog. Go do some homework. I did…now help me take back our nation! I am fighting for YOU! The least you can do is check your facts before you dismiss what I have written.
