And the Nobel Booby Prize Goes to George W. Bush (and his supporters)!

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Nominated by Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

Just think about it: Some of this week’s awards from the Nobel Committee went to people who must seem like the anti Christ to our pretentiously pious President, George W. Bush. For starters, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to Mario R. Capecchi, Martin J. Evans and Oliver Smithies who were recognized for a series of ground-breaking discoveries concerning embryonic stem cells! OH MY GAWD!

And, of course, this morning, the darkest of dark news descended on the White House when Bush’s nemesis Al Gore shared the Nobel Peace Prize with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change! ARMAGEDDON IS SURELY UPON US!

Give the man credit, he did his best. The very first veto issued by this President of incredible scientific understanding greatly limited federal funding for stem cell research. In his speech to the nation, this paragon of ethical governance explained that he could not support legislation that allowed researchers to “manipulate human life and violate human dignity.”  This self-proclaimed war president deeply values human life and never, ever violates its dignity…we all know that. WAY TO GO, GEORGE!

And then there are his efforts to counter the opinions of experts who have warned for decades about the dangers of polluting the environment. Sigh. George W. Bush has a steadfast and unparalleled record of ignoring, doctoring and manipulating scientific evidence and supporting corporate greed over the health and welfare of the nation.

Just last month we learned that the number of EPA prosecutions, new investigations and total convictions of criminal cases against polluters dropped off by more than a third during the Bush administration. That sort of summarizes the Bush approach to the environment, and clarifies the rarefied thinking that went into his actions to reduce restrictions of toxins in our water systems and lighten regulations on emissions by coal burning power plants.

And wasn’t it just special that this enlightened President ordered the EPA not to conduct any studies that may conflict with the administration’s agenda to pander to corporations at the expense of the health and safety of the public? GOLLY GEE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE!

Okay, fair is fair. If we applaud one side, let’s give the other a nod as well. After all, we now live in a country in which war is peace and Fascism is democracy, good is evil and up is down. Nothing is as is was and nothing at all is as it should be. So why not enter the looking glass reality of George W. Bush and acknowledge what he has managed to ‘accomplish’ in so short a time?

In that pursuit, I hereby name George W. Bush, along with all of those who have supported his delusions, Booby Laureates of 2007! Should there ever be a Nobel Booby Award, our present President must be given that award.

No man in recent history deserves this more.

Why Moveon.org Has Been and Will Always Be Wrong

Monday, October 8th, 2007

When a crime or an atrocity is in progress the solution is not to “move on” leaving the crime or atrocity in progress. The response should be “stop everything!” The political action organization called Moveon.org has succeeded in herding many Americans into accepting the current state of the state as politics as usual. They have kept their “members” busy and focused on supporting political solutions to criminal problems. Well I have news for you, political solutions do not work when the politicians are the problems! And “moving on” is not the answer to the criminal problems facing our nation today! And that’s the fact, Jack!

Forget everything that has happened at the hand of the Bush administration and focus on one thing, and one thing only, the legitimacy of their “elections!” It has been pretty well proven that this administration used every means possible to destroy what little farce of a democracy still exists in our political process in their efforts to prevent anything that would keep them from “taking” over the presidency. They stole the presidency and our nation along with it. The core members of this administration are well known for the Machiavelli principles yet people do not understand that those principles include the belief that all is fair when it comes to achieving or maintaining power. All is fair, from lying to killing. That is what Straussian Neo-Conservatism is all about. (Reference link)

I am sorry but I have problems looking at anyone who considers themselves to be an American patriot yet has no problem with the very real fact that the current so called president and his entire administration are enemies domestic. They conducted a coup, actually several electoral coups, and politicos and the ignorant (yet in many cases well meaning) citizens feel that the best way to handle it is to “Move On!” I say, bullshit! I say that the answer to what is going on is to “STOP EVERYTHING!” This is what we should have done the moment voting improprieties appeared in 2000. The minute Al Gore received a -16,000 vote count in a little town in Jeb Bush’s Florida we as a nation should have stopped everything! We should never have moved on from that catastrophic moment in American and global history!

This nation is in huge trouble. America is dead. This not in any way shape or form a democracy and we do not have a representative government. This past year of so called Democratic control of our Congress, with no changes in direction, no arrests, no prison terms, and the continuation of completely ignoring the massive evidence of high crimes by the Bush administration should be enough to make people realize that the problems facing our nation have nothing to do with left and right rather they have everything to do with democracy vs. tyranny.

Most people don’t have any idea that there are even any questions surrounding the legitimacy of the past few elections so I am not surprised that they don’t know that many of the answers were discovered; and the answers indicate massive election fraud. If this nation had any kind of national journalism institution we would all know this. Perhaps a national strike would have taken place. Perhaps harsher responses would have been taken by the people of this nation who call themselves patriots. But I can tell you two things, if this nation had a real media that served up accurate information about the world a lot of things would be better and the American public would not simply “move on” every time a crime is committed against them! So you can thank the media for what is going on these days. As I always say they are America’s greatest enemy for they protect and empower the most powerful enemies of the people.

Moveon’org members continue to march and yell to empty buildings. They continue to sign petitions and they continue to fall for the notion that the answers to their problems will be implemented if everyone would stop what their doing and “tells their Congressperson” one thing or another. Hey, stupid people, wake up, you are being ignored. Is that not yet apparent?

There is a famous Einstein theory that says that the definition of “insanity” is repeating the same action expecting different results. Well I actually believe that repeating the same action expecting different results is the definition of “stupidity!” Stop marching, stop calling your representatives, stop writing checks to the people who keep all your activism resources tied up doing things what will have no impact, and stop thinking that the issues of the day are political. The issues are criminal and should be treated as such. We have serous problems and “moving on” just leaves the criminals in place or sometimes just replaces the criminals. It’s really time to “Stop Everything!” Take that for whatever you may think it means. Think about it!

Time to Rename the Department of Defense to the Department of Offense

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Let’s be real folks, we the people of America need to be defended from potential harm. But the truth is that most of the threats posed to Americans have little to do with military activity of rogue nations or so called terrorists. We are threatened, our lives our threatened, our well being, health and financial stability are threatened, our food supply is threatened and most recently our ability to keep our homes and receive life saving medical help are threatened. And the people who pose these very real threats to you are the same lying bastards who spend every possible moment trying to exploit exaggerated fears that have never really posed a threat to us in the first place.

I know many of you are going to say, “But what about 9/11, that was a real threat!” Well, there are two ways I can answer this. Following the comical official explanation of what took place that day, even the simplest reasonable analysis pretty much proves my point when I say we do not have a department of defense. If we were to believe the official narrative of the events of 9/11 and truly look into the actions prior to that day and on that day, one can only deduce our so-called Defense Department and executive leadership were comprised of the most incompetent collection of misfits that have ever been assembled. A child would deduce that the people who ignored the “warnings” to the president and who decided that it was more important to keep a classroom full of children calm rather than take control of a nation under attack, clearly depict a group of people with such extreme intellectual limitations that professional assistance would have to be provided on a daily bases to simply ensure that these clods could complete the task of putting on their own pants.

On 9/11 and on every day since the attacks on our soil, the US Defense Department played absolutely no role in defending our nation.

Of course, if one bothers to look past the official narrative of 9/11 and take a few minutes to notice where the official evidence contradicts the official narrative, one would reasonably conclude that “defense” was not remotely the order of the day for our Defense Department. In fact, neutralizing the defense of our nation is a more accurate description of the actions that took place that day.

Since 9/11/2001, our Defense Department has clearly become the Offense Department. All efforts made by our armed forces in Iraq and their unchallenged commanders have involved the planning and carrying out of offensive actions against non-threatening entities. These military “leaders’ whose integrity we dare not question are guaranteed positions await their turn in the personally enriching business of ensuring military conflict. This is a far cry from their mission as defined by the name of the institution they are sworn to serve.

In the meantime, Congress, along with our historically criminal and dishonest executive branch and our increasingly politicized judiciary have relentlessly been on the offense obliterating our personal freedoms, our financial security and our control over the health of our person being, the planet, our food supply and the balance of life on earth.

At the same time, the corporate media are the most effective enablers of these offenses. If this nation had a press that understood its role in a democracy, perhaps the public would understand what has been taking place. Perhaps the people would be driven to the streets by the kind of outrage and anger that historically brought masses to the barricades and brought down similar tyrants.

This is not an issue of right versus left, Republican vs. Democrat, Islamic extremest vs. the immoral westerner. This is an issue of a total exploitive assault on the citizens of our nation. This is an issue of a controlled media placed in charge of fabricating somewhat believable explanations for the events taking place so that public anger is misdirected away from the people who not only pose, but actually implement the greatest threats to the American people ever.

I am no bleeding heart liberal. I have no problem watching vast groups of dangerous radicals being wiped off the face of the earth. What sets me apart from many who have zero tolerance for those who threaten America’s safety and freedom is that I have learned that those enemies are closer than most people realize. In fact, we have no one in our government who can protect us from our own political and military ‘leaders. And that clearly and directly includes our misnamed Department of Defense.

Think about it! Jesse Richard – Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

PERSONAL NOTE UPDATE: I am currently being examined for a possible tumor, infection or abscess that may be causing the terrible pain that I have been experiencing. I have been taking several medications that have drained a great deal of my energy. My two main concerns during this difficult period have been to keep the news page updated and to find some way of showing my appreciation to the people a friends around me who are helping me deal with this most debilitating experience. I will however emerge victorious and I’ll be back to my fighting self.

In the mean time please excuse any overly honest hostilities that may slip out due to some of the medications I am on.

I would like to collectively thank the many of you who have written me with words of support and encouragement. Your kind words are not only my compensation for running this website but they help to strengthen me when I am experience periods of weakness. I have always been a very strong person, both physically and emotionally. I have always been the person to fight for those who could not fight for themselves. I have always been the person to be there for those who have no place else to turn. It is overwhelming and humbling when I find myself in a position where it is I who am in need of help. I am at a loss for words that would adequately express my appreciation for the support and friendship of my family, friends and TvNewsLIES brothers and sisters. Your kind words mean more to me than I can describe and during this time where I am experiencing excruciating and debilitating pain, each kind word and every moment taken by someone who cares enough to think of me will remain in my heart as a ray of eternal sunshine that lights up my existence. Thank you all beyond ability to accurately express the magnitude of my appreciation.

Thank you for understanding,
Jesse

Osama bin Laden is Either Dead or He is Not Cooperating Anymore

Thursday, September 13th, 2007


Osama bin Laden: “I was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States nor did I have knowledge of the attacks. There exists a government within a government within the United States. The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; to the people who want to make the present century a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity. That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks. … The American system is totally in control of the Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States.” Reference Link.

That comment was made during the first interview of Osama bin Laden after 9/11. Yes, I know, there are videos showing Osama discussing the 9/11 events that appear to confirm his involvement. “Appear” is the key word there. Let me tell you something…I was sitting with someone fully fluent in Arabic when they originally aired one of those videos (not the fake fat Osama) and the translation given to us on TV did not match his comments. What a surprise.

According to my translator, Osama was discussing the events as if he saw them on TV, not as if he ordered them. When he spoke about the fact that he did not think the towers would fall he was speaking as we all did that day. When we were watching the event or when we heard about the event at first we did not think the planes would take the towers down. Then again, neither Osama nor we knew at the time that the buildings were rigged to come down, as was WTC 7, a 47 story building that came down in seconds in a perfect controlled collapse even though it had not been hit.

When Osama mentioned on that first video that “the Atta group” was involved he was saying things like “they say” or “they are saying” as if he was commenting on what was being said by the media. The key phrases “they say” and “they are saying” were conveniently - and let me add intentionally - left out of the translation presented to the public.

On 9/11/2001, Osama bin Laden opted out. He was not about to be the latest Lee Harvey Oswald. We have not heard from or seen him since. In my opinion he has either been killed for the purpose of silencing him (just like Saddam) or he has died of other causes (bad health, running from his handlers who wanted to silence him.) Bush surely is not looking for him.

Remember, it was the Bush administration that halted the FBI bin Laden investigation prior to 9/11 (as a matter of fact it was one of the first things the Bush administration did when they entered office…and now we know why…not to allow him to conduct the events of 9/11 but to prevent the intelligence agencies from absolving him from the soon-to-be committed crimes), and since 9/11 they have shut down all operations designed to find him. They know he is dead…or maybe they are protecting their guy. Maybe they cut a deal with him. Maybe they gave him his life for a promise of silence. Whatever the reality, we know one thing for sure…the Bush administration has no interest in looking for him for ANY reason. It is part of the public record folks…they stopped looking both before and after 9/11. Really folks, what does that say to you? Wake up already.

Let us look at what has happened to Osama since 9/11. We don’t know. We have not seen him or heard from him once since he claimed that he was not involved. It is my guess that his involvement with the CIA ended when 9/11 took place. It is my opinion that he was clearly a patsy here. We all know that his power stemmed from the CIA/Carter administration creation of the Mujahadim during the Russian incursion into Afghanistan. We all know that bin Laden was trained and funded by the CIA. We all know that his little venture known as al Qaeda was created with the full assistance of elements within the government of the United States. These are the same elements that do not answer to our citizens, follow our laws, and operate outside the Constitutional apparatus known as checks and balances. These are the same elements that break international laws by helping to rig elections, train and fund terrorist rebels, provoke, support and carry out coups and assassinations of democratically elected world leaders including our own (JFK), and sell arms to our so called enemies, a la Ronald Reagan & George W. Bush senior during the Iran Contra scandal. Reference link.

It is my opinion that Osama wanted no part of 9/11, which clearly was going to place a huge target on Islam and Islamic people all over the world. 9/11 was the worst thing that happened to Islam in history. It turned the world against Islam. Do you really think Osama wanted that to happen? Realize the only benefits from the events of 9/11 were that the radicals in the White House, who had control of the skies that day got what they needed. What a coincidence. They got the new Pearl Harbor that they spoke of and wrote about and now they would suddenly be allowed to do everything they ever wanted to do! in Condoleezza Rice’s words, 9/11 was “an opportunity.”  Do you think Osama wanted to give them an opportunity to “go medieval” on Islam?

It is high time that the American people realize that the real government, or I should say ruling body of the United States, operates outside the distraction we know as government. We have a so-called elected government to keep us quiet. It is there to keep us believing that we actually have some say in what goes on. But if you take a closer look at what is going on with our world you will realize that you would generally disapprove of every decision that is being made “in your name” by “your representatives” and “elected” officials. This ranges from handing our economic system over to private bankers to altering the genetic structure of your food supply to suppressing clean and free energy to starting and fueling wars to having a medial industry run by the people who make money if you remain sick. Fact is that your representative government does not represent you. Agendas are set, orders are given and laws are passed and you have no say whatsoever.

Osama bin Laden, like the US Government itself, is a prop. He is there to provide a plausible explanation for some of the actions that take place before our eyes. Yet, at closer look all the evidence is there. Reality is clear when you look behind the fog of the myths put forth by the establishment media, which at this point is nothing more than a PR firm for the real rulers of this nation. They rule from behind the scenes and they cloak themselves by creating a false reality using their mass media apparatus. The funny thing is that while their media tells you that you are looking at an apple, it is more than obvious than ever that the orange you are staring at is not the apple that they are telling you it is. All you have to do is look at it and think about it and admit it…then the game will be over. You will join the reality-based world and you won’t fall for the lies put forth by the establishment media.

Osama bin Laden was not the perpetrator of 9/11 and that fact has been made clear by the the elements within our own government that have put forth, in desperation, one fake video or audio tape after another. These tapes are always timed to politically benefit the government officials with the closest and most loyal ties to the non-elected real bosses behind the scenes. Do the math, people. It’s laughably obvious at this point. All you have to do is calm down, take some time…and look for yourself. Don’t listen to the media telling you what you are supposed to see…just look and think for yourself. You don’t need to be told what you are seeing. The problem is that most people believe they are looking at an apple, even though they are looking at an orange. And they believe this because some authority figure told them to do so. Well assume the authority. Think for yourself. Then you will see the lies.

Let me ask you folks a question: Why is it that any time a celebrity sneaks out of the country to have a romantic meeting or secret wedding, the media is all over it? But when the yearly Bilderberg meeting or the strange, sinister and rather disturbing gatherings at Bohemian Grove take place, the media cooperate and ignore the events? How is it that all the people who are accused by the so called crazy conspiracy theorists, get together in a secret and conspiratorial manner, and meet to discuss world agenda or to partake in rituals and activities the likes of which we saw in the movie Rosemary’s Baby, no press coverage is available. I’ll tell you why, because the people involved in these meetings control the media and they control our government.

The international bankers, Henry Kissinger, James Baker, George Schultz, former US presidents, former heads of state from all over the world, all meet to take part in secret meetings and pagan rituals…and you call people like me crazy for daring to point this stuff out? Who is crazy? It’s not me. It’s not a myth…it’s documented. It’s photographed (to some extent) and nobody denies it. So why is it not believed when people like me point it out? I’ll tell you why…because nobody believes anything unless it is on TV…that’s why we need to take the criminals off the air and replace them with a real news media! We don’t need media reform…we need media replacement!

For the record, the corporate heads of the mass media show up at these secret disturbing events too. Small wonder. Reference Link

So get it through your head, the world is not what it appears to be on TV. Osama did not deliver 9/11, and if he was involved it was at the behest of people, American people, right here in the good old US. It was at the behest of people who were in a position to stand down NORAD and bring down WTC Building 7 while keeping its destruction and reconstruction out of the public conscience (yes, WTC 7, a 50 plus story building has been rebuilt already…with no fanfare or press conference…even on the anniversary of 9/11…I wonder why?

By the way…these criminals who have hijacked our nation get away with it for one reason…our so called journalists are traitors. May I suggest we treat them as such. Then perhaps we can truly be free. But as long as the media are out of the control of the citizens, the criminals will thrive and remain hidden from view. Think about it!

9/11 6 Years Later and Cheney Still Walks Free

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Enough will be written about 9/11 today. Suffice to say I have written my fair share on the topic over the years. I will however express my utter dismay at how many people in our nation still do not know the facts surrounding that day. They do not know that the “new Pearl Harbor” was the dream come true, or more accurately according to the facts a dream made to come true for the men who run the Bush presidency.

Taking into account what we have learned over the years like the NORAD stand down, to the terror drills, to the evaporation of the planes at the Pentagon and PA., to the erasure of WTC 7 from our skyline and the history books while being rebuilt without being noticed by anyone, the survival of the official narrative is simply stunning.

The lies surrounding the official narrative of 9/11 live on for one reason; because the establishment press maintain the the rights and ability to approve reality. They are responsible for allowing Dick Cheney, perhaps the biggest criminal in American political history, to walk free and continue to use the American government and all its resources for his personal agenda.

I have done my homework. I left my career so that I can help educate the public about how media deception works. My conclusions are not based on politics, they are based on evidence. And during these years of full time research I have seen enough to conclude that the people responsible for 9/11 are the people who are now destroying our Constitution in the name of protecting us from another 9/11. In fact what they are doing is protecting themselves, from us. Let me say that if we had a legitimate news media in this nation no legal manipulation in the world would protect the Cheney cabal from the people of this nation. And if I had my way, no legal manipulation in the world would protect the establishment media from the wrath of the people. Think about it!

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.

George W. Bush and Black Holes!

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

By Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

Most of us don’t know a helluva lot about black holes, and probably don’t really care to know very much about them. But in truth, black holes are really fascinating once you take a closer look, even to a lay person with not much background. Trust me on that for a bit.

For starters, what I do know is that a black hole is an area out in space that’s so huge that its gravitational pull is astounding. So, astounding, in fact, that nothing, absolutely nothing that gets close can escape being sucked into it. That means everything, no matter how massive, would be able to escape its pull and nothing we know could move fast enough to draw away from its gravitational power. Not even a beam of light.

Stay with me here and you’ll see where I’m going.

One more interesting bit: According to Einstein, objects of very great mass distort time and space so that the usual rules of geometry just can’t be used to explain their behavior. So, when it comes to a black hole, something strange happens. It has a boundary that’s very unusual. If you reached that boundary, you could pass through it, but you would not be able to back out. In fact, once you’ve passed through the boundary you’d be doomed to move closer and closer to the center of the black hole.

And then it would only be a very short time until you die.

Now, that’s all fairly interesting, but why would I want to write about black holes at all? Stay with me just a little bit longer, I promise to connect.

For the record, and just in case you do happen to get pulled into a black hole, rest assured that you wouldn’t really feel anything terribly unusual at first. If the hole was a really big one, you wouldn’t be torn apart until you were about half a million kilometers from the center. Imagine that. Even as you were being pulled towards certain doom you might not suspect that anything was terribly wrong.

I suppose, when it comes to black holes, in a way, bigger is better.

And in a way, a really big black hole has formed right here on earth, and right here in the good old USA. And in a most precarious way, we all are dangerously close to the boundary from which there is no return. For in an undeniable and almost inevitable way there is a direct nexus between a barely discernible black hole in our own land and the reign of George W. Bush.

For the sake of simplicity, let’s call it the Bush Black Hole and understand that we can’t see into its abyss because black holes are devoid of light. But if we take a look around, we become painfully aware of the things that have disappeared from our lives in the past seven years, never ever to be seen again. Some vanished in secret while others were tossed into the chasm with arrogant disregard of all that we once were as a nation.

No matter how it came to pass, so much of value has crossed a mysterious boundary into the oblivion of the Bush Black Hole. Tragically, much of what has disappeared has not yet been missed by so many Americans. They don’t have a clue that so much that was so vital to their lives has been hauled forever into the bowels of this administration.

So many Americans are still unaware that the Bush Black Hole contains the dismembered remains of:

-Elections free of Supreme Court interference

-Congressional oversight

-Separation of church and state

-An impartial investigation of the events of 9/11

-Checks and balances

-The right of dissent without fear

-The Fourth Amendment

-Habeas corpus

-A responsible White House Press Corps

-Respect of the US by people around the world

-New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast

-Respect for international treaties

-Rejection of pre-emptive or preventive war

-The Geneva Conventions

-International Law

- Truth and integrity in government

-Diplomacy and cooperation with other nations

-Investigative reporting by mainstream media

-Environmental protections

-The FISA Court

-Protection of covert CIA operatives

-Nuclear disarmament and non proliferation

-An overburdened and under equipped military

-Almost four thousand American and coalition troops

-Hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis and Afghanis

-Fiscal responsibility

-America’s middle class

-Health care for all children

-A nation free of PNAC control

-Democracy

And that, as the saying goes, is the short list. But not to worry, there’s lots of room in the Bush Black Hole for more. Black holes are notoriously immense and George W. Bush, with his dreams of empire, has more time to carry out his goals than you might think.

A recent Presidential Directive has given the Bush administration full power to transfer control of this nation from the Congress and place it into the hands of the White House. Another such directive gives this President the right to declare martial law when and if he deems it necessary. Every day the drums of war beat more loudly for an attack against the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran. Do the math.

Then try to assess just how close we all are to the boundary that separates us from the Bush Black Hole. We already have lost so much that is totally irretrievable. If we endure as a free nation and as a free people we might recreate what we have lost one day in the future. But right now we are in a fight for survival.

Understand that it is possible to enter a black hole with no sensation of the destructive force about to be encountered. Passing the boundary can be relatively uneventful and temporarily comfortable. But once over the line there is no way to retreat, and the fate of all who pass the boundary is forever sealed.

And so it has come to pass in the Bush administration that they have acted with impunity and hubris in a terrorized nation and an intimidated world. They have not been stopped nor will anyone stop them any time soon. And, like the children who followed the Pied Piper to the river, so many Americans are walking willingly towards the Black Hole that George Bush has created.

The choice, then, is clear. We can work to make others aware of the dangers they still do not see. We can direct others to the truth of what has happened and shake them out of their passivity and blindness. Or, as happens to so many bodies in space that unwittingly find themselves heading directly towards the boundaries from which they will never escape, we can just do nothing but sit back and enjoy the ride.

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

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

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

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

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

Laws Exist to Protect Citizens, Not Politicians

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

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

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

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

Coming of Age in Bush’s America!

Monday, July 30th, 2007

By Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

Imagine being on the brink of adolescence in the year 2000, - only minimally aware of the world around you, and really not into the foibles of politics or politicians. Life was what it was, and you took it pretty much for granted. In fact, for you and other young teens in 2000; things seemed pretty good and getting better, because you were growing up in the richest and most powerful nation in the whole damn world.

It wasn’t a perfect place, for sure, but it had potential. There were wrongs to be righted, but there was real hope that things would only get better as the years went on. All in all, in the year 2000, being a kid in America was a good thing to be.

Now imagine that it is seven years later and you have just grown into adulthood, and you gradually realize that in a frighteningly short a time your entire world has become unraveled. In just seven years, everything good that once was there is gone, and your country has come apart at the seams before your very eyes.

Really think about these last seven years and recoil at what it actually means to have come of age in Bush’s America.

To assist your reality check, here’s a short list the mind-boggling transformations that have become standard operating procedure in the good old USA. Read them carefully:*

* The outcome of an a presidential election can be decided by a handful of Supreme Court Justices rather than the people.

* A President of the United States need not speak honestly, coherently or intelligibly when not reading from a prepared text. It is acceptable for the President to be reviled around the globe and to be unable to travel anywhere without extraordinary protection from huge protests against his visit and his policies.

* Where it was once highly respected, the United States of America is now the most feared nation on Earth. The US can murder more civilians than all the world’s terrorists combined and claim its actions are meant to liberate people.

* The major tools of executive governance are lies, secrecy and the abuse of executive privilege. These methods are implemented under the guise of national security in order to thwart any and all departmental oversight.

* Voting machines can be privately owned by members of one political party, and need not have paper trails for verifying results. It is irrelevant to the election process that voting machines have been shown to be easily hacked, and that voting irregularities have prevented many thousands of people from voting or having their votes counted.

* Elected leaders and their cohorts can lie with impunity to the American people, to the Congress, to the UN and to the world. There is no oversight; there are no checks and balances, and no mainstream media to act as watchdogs for the people.

* The President can quietly override the will of the people by the use of signing statements. He can claim the authority to disobey hundreds of laws enacted by Congress, thereby asserting the power to set aside any statute when it conflicts with his personal interpretation of the Constitution.

* The 2001 attack on American soil need not be fully investigated, and the causes of the attacks as explained by the President must be believed without question.

* Any questions raised about that attack, and all the evidence exposing the anomalies of the official story of what happened are nothing more than ˜conspiracy theories” raised by deranged people or those who sympathize with terrorists.

* Pre-emptive and preventive attacks on other nations that include use of nuclear weapons are legal tools of American foreign policy.

* Wars can be waged against benign nations that have never harmed the US or posed any threat whatever to Americans or their allies.

* The reasons for invading and occupying non-threatening nations must not be challenged, even if they change dozens of times throughout the years of waging such a war.

* Soldiers can be sent into an immoral and unjust war with little planning and inadequate armor, and unending redeployment. At the same time, veterans’ health care is unimportant and can be shamefully administered.

* Terror threats can be fabricated at will to keep the public in a state of constant fear. Creating an illusory ˜war on terror’ can be used to gain public support for a costly and failing war that reaps huge profits for private contractors.

* Americans and others living in the US can be spied upon without probable cause and without the acquisition of warrants in defiance of existing FISA laws.

* Anyone can be declared an enemy combatant at the whim of the administration and can be confined indefinitely without being charged or having access to counsel.

* Torturing detainees in violation of the Geneva Convention is acceptable, and if in doubt, rendition to countries that will do the torturing is a viable alternative.

* There need be no accountability for anyone in or connected to the White House for inept performance, for disastrous decisions, or for criminal acts such as lying under oath, obstructing justice or revealing the identity of a covert CIA operative.

* Martial law can be declared at the discretion of the White House, should it deem any emergency situation to exist. By official directive, in such an emergency, all powers can be taken from the legislative and judicial branches and transferred to the President.

* Anyone who participates in or supports actions that are determined to interfere with the waging of war in Iraq can have all personal assets confiscated without due process. It is not necessary for the person involved to know which organization or group is considered such interference.

* The use of a stem cell from a discarded embryo in a Petri dish for medical research is immoral. The death of hundreds of thousands of people in a senseless war of choice is moral.

* Family values translate into rejecting a woman’s the right to privacy and opposing marriage between people of the same sex.

* Empirical science can be invalidated by biblical precepts.. Global warming and evolution are junk science.

…and on and on and on and on.

Do you really need more examples to ponder? I think not.

The distinction is clear: coming of age in Bush’s America means living with a new set of principles and practices that are diametrically opposed to those upon which this nation was founded.

What is even worse is that anyone who was a child in this country before 2000 will probably not recall or understand how great a nation we were before the Bush/PNAC takeover. It is not unreasonable for that person to believe that the government in power today is carrying on business as usual, and that this is how it should be.

Even sadder is the notion that it will take generations to undo the damage, and these same young Americans may never, ever experience life in a country of laws and Constitutional integrity.

For all of these reasons, a great responsibility falls on the shoulders of those of us who, as adults, witnessed the coup that took place and understand the devastation that followed. It is up to us to educate and inform those who came of age in Bush’s America of the desperate and immediate need to reclaim the nation we once knew.

Each day that passes brings new revelations of how far this administration will go to usurp more and more power at the expense of its people. Each day that passes reveals more lies, more disdain for the rule of law, more contempt for Constitutional checks and balances and more plans to enrich the military industrial complex that has joined forces with the White House.

But mainstream media coverage of these travesties is all but non-existent, save for the forceful commentary of Keith Olbermann and the scathing satire of Jon Stewart. That simply will not do.

One of these days the people in power will reach a point of no return. On that day there will be no way remaining to restore the republic to its former self and we the people will have no legal recourse for change. And that time is not far off.

A generation ago, the young people of America brought their government to its knees after ten bloody years in Vietnam. They had come of age as another senseless war was being waged, and as their precious blood was being sought to continue to the carnage.

This time around, they are far too silent, and far too removed from immediate consequence. That also will not do.

What will do, however, has got start with the dissemination of truth about a government that has suppressed so much of it. It has to continue with a rejection of the mainstream media for their unabashed complicity in everything that has happened. And it has to be followed up by information networking among the millions of young people for whom the Internet has become a standard means of communication.

The real news is out there for the asking: TvNewsLIES.org, Whatreallyhappened.com, Buzzflash.com, Truthout.com, Huffingtonpost.com, Thinkprogress.org, Commondreams.org and other web sites post important stories that seriously affect the lives of so many people every single day. Mike Malloy broadcasts every weekday evening via NovaMRadio.com. Bring these vital news sources to the attention of those who still are oblivious to what is going on.

Knowledge is power; ignorance is no longer an option. It is the only legal weapon we have at our disposal. Without it, millions upon millions of young men and women will remain frighteningly unaware of the dictatorship that is being created step by step all around them because there is no open opposition to its progress.

Without information in the hands of the public, those in power get a free ride. The young men and women of America must wake up. They have to play an active and visible role in resisting the creeping death of democracy in their own country.

If not, they will pay a very painful and irreversible price for coming of age in Bush’s America.
