Mercury in Subway: Bad – Mercury in Our Air Supply & Food: Good

Friday, January 19th, 2007

CNN is terrorizing the public once again with frightening reports about a man who spilled a jar of mercury in a subway station. We keep hearing how this is a dangerous heavy metal and how the man who did this is wanted for questioning by the FBI. Why then, I ask, is George W. Bush not wanted for questioning related to mercury?

Mercury poured onto a subway platform is pretty much harmless unless someone drinks it, touches it (providing they have an open wound) or sucks it into their lungs. Mercury pumped into the atmosphere by the ton poisons our breathing air, our drinking water, our food supply and our eco system. George W. Bush and his administration have done everything in their power to maintain or increase the levels of mercury that is pumping into the atmosphere, poisoning everyone. He and his administration have halted all regulations that were designed to reduce the amount of mercury in our atmosphere.

If CNN is so concerned about someone harming us with mercury why don’t they report on the people responsible for doing the most harm to us with mercury right this minute? Why don’t they report on George W. Bush’s role in the massive mercury poisoning of Americans?

So I ask you why the man who poured a jar of mercury harmlessly on to a subway platform is wanted for questioning while the man who is making sure tons of mercury poisons us all remains immune to all scrutiny. Think about it!

The Fascist Mission Accomplished in Iraq

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

While we hear buzzwords like “freedom” and “democracy” tossed around by the criminal corporate media and the lying bastards known as politicians, the reality is that fascism is what is at play. Look around the world for any leader of a nation who dares to disturb the fascist financial leaders of the world by using the recourses of their nation to benefit the citizens instead of the small group of fascist global imperial elite and that person will rise to the top of the most wanted list. They will be demonized in every way imaginable. Their crime: providing for the people without allowing greedy fascist to exploit people for profit.

Hugo Chaves is the most recent anti-fascist leader to be demonized by the propaganda arm of the global fascist elite: the US corporate media. His crime: he is providing for his people at the expense of multi-national corporations.

Saddam was the last person to pay the price for doing a similar thing. One can argue that Saddam signed his own death warrant when he kicked out the international oil companies and nationalized the industry. He strengthened his nation with this oil money. Thanks to the lying bastards in the US media most Americans do not know that the Iraqi oil money was used for things other than the government buildings, deceptively emphasizes by the corporate media as palaces. That oil money paid for FREE HEALTH CARE FOR IRAQIS and FREE EDUCATION, THROUGH COLLEGE, FOR IRAQIS (including women!)

Now, the new Iraqi government is set to hand that oil back to the people who are arguably the most horrible ruthless evil people ever to live; the western oil companies and those who represent them. These are the people who think nothing of starting wars, lying to the world about pollution and global warming (things that will kill millions of people), and preventing other technologies from entering the public realm.

Now these greedy dangerous oil companies have what they wanted, Iraq’s oil. The Iraqi people will no longer have free education or health care. The health care issue is even worse than you think because thanks to the nuclear waste that we littered their nation with in the form of depleted uranium the health problems in Iraq may become the worst of any nation in the history of the world; and just in time because the American mission in Iraq is concluding with the elimination of the money to pay for that health care.

Iraq is now shaping into the fascist model that so many people mistake for democracy. Make no mistake, as it is in America freedom now exists in Iraq. But the freedom is for those who own our lives to own more of our lives. Freedom exists, but only for the few in charge. Nobody has the courage to point this out however. So with this latest decision to turn the Iraqi oil rights over to western nations you can pretty much feel safe to finally say “mission accomplished.”     Think about it!

Don’t Let Iraq Distract You

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

While every bit of our attention is being devoted to discussions about Iraq don’t take your eyes off of what else is taking place. The Bush administration is speedily moving to eliminate the sovereignty of the United States of America! Our individual financial rights and protections are being eliminated and more power is being granted to the financial institutions that control our society, including the IRS and the Federal Reserve. Decisions are being made about our food chain, the balance of nature and the very future of life on Earth. So while Iraq is a vital issue, don’t let it distract you from other vital issues.  Think about it!

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

Friday, January 5th, 2007

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Don’t Confuse “Brutal” With “Evil!” Saddam Was Not Evil. The U.S. Is.

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

I am getting tired of hearing this phrase: “granted, Saddam was evil.” This phrase is used mostly by people who fold to the argument that “taking Saddam out” was a good thing but the way it was done was not. Well let me clear something up right now…there is a big difference between being evil and using brutal inhumane tactics against one’s enemies. Saddam was a brutal leader and he had no limits as to how he dealt with those who tried to harm him or his people. Yes, Saddam protected his people. The problem is that many of the people living in Iraq were not his people and the feeling was mutual.

The people whom Saddam brutalized were those whom he felt threatened him. This is EXACTLY what the Bush administration is doing. The only difference is that the Bush administration came up with a title for those who they want to brutalize: enemy combatants. Saddam did not randomly pick people off the street in order to hurt them for fun; he was keeping dissidents in line. That is exactly what the Bush administration has done.

Evil is when the richest most powerful nation in the world allows or supports atrocities around the world because trying to help is “not in their interest” (code speak for “there is no money in it!”)

Evil is when the richest most powerful people in the world endanger the health and future of humans, animal life and plant life because not doing so may interfere with profit margins.

Evil is not treating ill people with every single available resource because they can not afford to pay you enough.

Evil is creating and using all means to end life in war while making it illegal to mercifully end life for those who suffer terribly from terminal illness (how does one justify the deaths of innocent people in “collateral damage” and oppose euthanasia?).

Evil is when a journalist looks you in the face and knowingly omits information from a news report so that you don’t know what the truth is.

Evil is earning multi million dollar bonuses while you are laying off employees.

Evil is claiming to “support the troops” while supporting the very people who allow veterans to become homeless and destitute.

Evil is lying to people by telling them that you are supporting and protecting “democracy” when in fact you are clearly destroying democracy to protect unregulated “capitalism”, where just like in the game of Monopoly everyone loses except the sole owner of everything.

Evil is greed, corporations are greed personified and the United States stands for nothing but corporate greed; so do the math…the United States is an evil nation led by evil people with evil greed running through their veins.

Evil is the U.S. news media, most U.S. politicians and just about every CEO on earth who on this third day of 2007 has already made more money than many of his employees will make for the rest of the year.

Evil is men with money and power who value nothing else but money and power and will to anything to anyone to satisfy their addiction to money and power.

‘Tis the Season?

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

I will be attending some holiday events over the next few days. I have no doubt that I will be among cheery people who think all is fine in their little world. I am sure that at one point I will be in a room full of people where some of the people are very aware of the facts that 9/11 was an inside job, we have stolen elections in this country and that global human extinction is being expedited by the people who make decisions about war, our food chain, our health and our environment, yet they will party like all is fine.

I may be the only one in the room daydreaming about homeless veterans gathering together to kill every white shirt war profiteer and politician who sent them to go murder people and then tossed them aside like a used tissue. I may be the only person among the festive crowds wondering how the hell the term “homeless people” is still applicable in a world in which the hottest selling “game” costs $600!!! I will no doubt be the only one in the room saying to myself “what the hell are we celebrating?” Think about it!

Beware the Fake Media Watchdog

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Need I say more?

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

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

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

Right Wing Americans are Getting What They Deserve

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

If there has ever been a case where people have lost the right to complain it is now. The blind faith and catatonic loyalty given to George W. Bush by what has to be the most uninformed political base in human history serves as justification for those of us in the “we told you so” crowd to tell them to shut up and take it like a man. As the average American drowns in the wake of the Bush tsunami I don’t want to hear so much as a peep from the millions who ridiculed the “intellectuals” who tried to warn them about this intellectually inert puppet and his fascist handlers.

As American soldiers and innocent Iraqis die by the hundreds each day, as the true costs of the Bush tax cuts and Medicare overhaul come destroy one family after another, as each child dies from asthma due to relaxed environmental laws, when an accident at a germ warfare facility wipes out a city, when our coastal cities end up under water because we ignored and exacerbated global warming, as new cancers and horrors arise because our food supply has been genetically modified without our permission and when we have to go to war with other nations because the global food chain broke and our seas no longer provide oxygen to breath and there is not enough food and air to support life on earth because our god damn president does not believe in science, every Fox News watching, Limbaugh listening, Hannitized, flag wearing, gay hating right wing Constitution bashing false patriot Bush supporter better shut up and take it because they made it happen! Bush supporters have nobody to blame but themselves and guess what, the rest of us should blame them too.

All I can say is that this is what you get for believing even for a moment what the US corporate media wants you to believe. The rest of us Bush haters are Bush haters for one reason and one reason only; we pay attention! So to my new former Bush supporting friends who seem to be suddenly surrounding me and telling me that I have been right all along: you can tell me I was right but after that shut the hell up because it is too late for forgiveness. From now on, just shut up and listen. Think about it!

Banning Trans Fats? Who is Behind This?

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

New York City just banned the use of trans fats in all food service establishments. Why? Why can’t I eat trans fats? Don’t get me wrong, I think trans fats are bad for you and I try not to have them. But I want to know why NYC disallowed me from eating trans fats when it still allows me to smoke (cigarettes are the only product ever marketed that when used as directed will kill you), eat aspartame (the most dangerous food on the market, drink fluoride (they actually put this rat poison in our drinking water) and wash (and brush my teeth) with sodium laureth sulfate and ammonium laureth sulfate (ALS/SLS will remove your protective lipids form your skin, absorb into your body and combine with other chemicals to form carcinogens.) I can’t eat trans fats but they will trick me into eating genetically modified food without even telling me!

I know enough to eat well when I have the will power to do so. If you want to help my stay healthy how about keeping pollutants out of my breathing air and leave the menu selection to me!

Bush is Not Protecting Us; He is Killing Us

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Radical Christians who have nothing better to do than hope for Armageddon sure have a lot to thank George W. Bush for! While the criminal corporate media fool you into thinking that you are being kept safe because terrorists have not attacked this nation in a few years refuse to report how the real threats to your life and to the world in general have increased exponentially thanks to the policies of George W. Bush. While I can fill volumes with reports validating my claim I’ll settle for pointing out the latest crime against humanity committed by the Bush administration that will no doubt result in human and animal death and suffering. Continuing his assault on the well being of Americans George W. Bush and his criminal administration has decided to allow pesticides to be sprayed over open waters without any permit! Isn’t that nice? I wonder if the members of the Environmental Protection Agency know the name of the agency for which they work! Any way this is just another example of how threats to your life increase at the hands of George W. Bush while the criminal media distract your attention! The only good thing about a development like this is that the people in the media will die too. Think about it!


EPA OKs spraying pesticides over waters - he Bush administration pleased farmers and frustrated environmentalists Monday by declaring that pesticides can be sprayed into and over waters without first obtaining special permits. - Environmentalists, though, note that mosquito-killing chemicals can also poison shrimp, frogs and other aquatic innocents. The good intentions of mosquito-hunters shouldn’t exempt the chemicals from permit requirements, these advocates believe. - “Pesticides are intended to kill living organisms, something that most would consider an adverse effect on the environment,” noted Janette K. Brimmer, legal director for the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy.

Bush on the Environment - The environmental policies of George W. Bush will result in more death and destruction than anything else in history. It is almost as if they are trying to end life on earth. TVNL chronicles the crimes against the planet known as the George W. Bush environmental policy.
