Diving mystery

In my weekly dispatch from Whitley Strieber's site, I saw this odd story regarding a Coast Guard dive in the Arctic Ocean where two divers were sucked down uncontrollably during a dive. A report is expected sometime soon.

Brutal dictator Pinochet dies on Human Rights Day

Isn't it ironic (doncha think?) that murderous dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet died in his native Chile on International Human Rights Day? I think so. Rent the 1982 film "Missing" with Sissy Spacek and Jack Lemmon to get a sense of what it was like in Chile leading up to Pinochet's overthrow of the democratically-elected Allende government on Sept. 11, 1973.

From the UK Independent: "This is a moment of freedom, of joy, and of catharsis for an entire nation that lived through one of the worst dictatorships of all of Latin America," said Daniela Lillo, a mother and actress who stood in Santiago's Plaza Italia square, with a glass of champagne in hand.
With her four-year-old daughter in tow, she said her daughter she would never forget this day and her first sip of champagne.
But others say they were disappointed that Pinochet never saw his day in court for the 3,200 deaths and disappearances that took place under his rule.
"Pinochet has died without ever served justice," said Carmen Soria, the daughter of a Spanish diplomat assassinated during the dictatorship. "The courts and four government of the Concertacion [Chile's ruling left-wing coalition] were not able to condemn Pinochet.
It is ironic that he also died on the International Day for Human Rights. "This day is bittersweet because we weren't able to make him spend a single day in jail," lamented Ximena Muñoz, a human rights activist for an association for Chile's disappeared.
"Still, he's been judged by the public and that will go down in history, so today he is dead and you see today that it's a carnival for Chile's people. The dictator has died. Now we must forge ahead to try the rest of the assassins and torturers of his era."

Remember the desaparecidos.

Don't take the chip

This Toronto Star story basically lays it out - we will all be microchipped within the next 50 or so years. In fact, I was at the bank the other day because I hadn't received my ATM card in the mail after two weeks and I was concerned it may have been stolen. The bank employee joked that it won't be a problem in the near future because we'll all be chipped. No sir, not me!

That bizarre Air Force monument in D.C.

I was in Washington, D.C. over the Thanksgiving holiday and while driving through the city, couldn't help but notice that hideous, horned Air Force monument that dominates the skyline. I mean it's awful. D.C. report Wayne Madsen shares his thoughts on the monument and how it's rather controversial.

Richards rant staged?

Ever since first hearing about actor Michael Richards' racist rant at a West Hollywood comedy club a few weeks back, I've been somewhat suspicious. Surely, Richards would know someone would record the rant or at least tell the media about it. And why do it right as the seventh season of "Seinfeld" is being released on DVD (we've got our copy and it's awesome!)? Well, the always insightful Paul Joseph Watson has some thoughts on this rant that he strongly believes was staged to help boost sales of the DVD and get his name back in the media spotlight, even if the publicity is negative. I mean, Richards has always been a bit of a loose cannon, from his days on "Fridays" to that bizarre performance in "Weird Al" Yankovic's "UHF" film from 1989.

And I can't forget to add that Michael Richards is a 33rd-degree Scottish Rite Freemason. Here's more on that here.

A&M sightings

Had the pleasure of attending a college football game between Texas A&M and Nebraska. While there, getting a crash course in A&M tradition, I got to see the newly nominated Secretary of Defense Robert Gates (A&M's president and former CIA director during the Iran-Contra scandal) and later, former President George H.W. Bush. It was pretty surreal. To know just a wee bit of what those two men know ... holy cow!

Neocons = vampires

Justin Raimondo, over at is one of the best political thinkers and writers out there. Just check out the lead to his article "The Neocons, Undaunted" ...
You have to give the neoconservatives credit for tenacity. Any other political or ideological group saddled with their record would crawl off into the shadows to expire without fanfare. Not the neocons. Vampire-like, they rise from the crypt of Bush's "global democratic revolution," fangs extended and hungry for fresh blood. There isn't enough garlic in the world to deter them – I doubt that even a pointed stake in the heart would suffice. The War Party, it seems, is immortal – like evil itself.

Like evil itself. Brilliant!

IDF vet to head USAF's wars in cyberspace?

Writes Wayne Madsen at Wayne Madsen Report:

October 24, 2006 -- US Air Force official's past raises eyebrows. On December 7, 2005, the US Air Force officially recognized "cyberspace" as one of its warfare domains -- along with air and outer space. In early November, Air Force officials will gather in Washington to form a new US Air Force Command -- the Air Force Cyberspace Command. It will have authority to launch wars in cyberspace. The new command is largely the brainchild of Dr. Lani Kass, director of the Air Force Cyberspace Task Force.
Kass' past has many US government computer security officials puzzled and concerned. From 1979 to 1981, Kass served as a Major in the Israeli Defense Forces. This was at a time when Israel was targeting America's most closely held secrets through its Navy spy, Jonathan Pollard. After her service in the IDF, Kass integrated into the Washington national security establishment, the private sector serving as an entree. From 1982 to1985, Kass was Director of the Russian Research Center at Booz-Allen and Hamilton, Bethesda, Md. (an odd name considering that Russia was then called the Soviet Union by every national security entity). From 1985 to 2005, Kass was Professor of Military Strategy and Operations at National War College at National Defense University in Fort McNair, Washington.
Kass previously served in the Dick Cheney Defense Department, having worked from 1992 to 1993 as Special Assistant to the Director, Strategic Plans and Policy Directorate (J-5), Joint Staff at the Pentagon. She returned to the Pentagon under Defense Secretary William Cohen and continued to serve under Donald Rumsfeld. From 2000 to 2001, Kass was Senior Policy Adviser and Special Assistant for Strategic Initiatives to the Director, Strategic Plans and Policy Directorate (J-5) and from January 2006 to the present, she has been the Special Assistant to the Chief of Staff, U.S. Air Force, and Director of CSAF’s Cyberspace Task Force.

Bush cousin accidentally runs down, kills CT cop

This story out of Skull and Bones-burg New Haven, Connecticut appears to be a tragic accident but it does give one pause.

Notes the Boston Globe: The driver of the SUV that hit Picagli is John M. Walker Jr., a senior judge on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, who lives in Connecticut and maintains court chambers in New Haven. He was leaving work when the accident occurred, police said.
Walker, a 1962 Yale graduate, was appointed to the federal bench by President Reagan in 1985. He was appointed to the 2nd Circuit in 1989 by his cousin, former President George H.W. Bush.
No charges have been filed.
Story also notes they didn't check Walker for drugs or alcohol. How ironic, considering the Walker-Bush's link to drugs and alcohol over the years. Then again, I'm sure the entire New Haven police force is under the thumb of Bush-connected "interests."

And one can't help but think of other strange things that have happened when Walker-Bush's are in or near motor vehicles. Remember this lil' long-forgotten news nugget?

Bush family to flee to Paraguay?

When I heard that the Bush family (via daughter Jenna Bush's UN trip to that South American nation) arranged to buy a big spread in northern Paraguay, I couldn't help but think about how Argentina and Brazil accepted former Nazis following World War II.

Here's more about it here.

I should contact my old roomie, a Paraguayan, and ask him if he's heard about this.

Put options, Iran and October 19

As you all may remember, back in August, Alex Jones announced on his radio show that within two months there was an over 90 percent chance that there would be "bone-shattering attacks" against America.

Well, I saw this over a RMN. Not sure what to make of it but after yesterday's signing of the Military Commissions Act into law, I sense they're ramping up for something big.

Just check out the put options from October 6, noted at False Flag News.

1+0+1+9= 11.

Mystery injuries and deaths in Palestine

This UK Guardian article, via Common Dreams, headlined "Gaza Doctors Say Patients Suffering Mystery Injuries After Israeli Attacks," is of particular concern. The Israeli government went crazy in their attacks on Lebanon this summer and now we're getting reports of Palestinian civilians with serious injuries or dying after being struck or affected by Israeli weaponry.

"Bodies arrived severely fragmented, melted and disfigured," said Jumaa Saqa'a, a doctor at the Shifa hospital, in Gaza City. "We found internal burning of organs, while externally there were minute pieces of shrapnel. When we opened many of the injured people we found dusting on their internal organs."
It is not clear whether the injuries come from a new weapon. The Israeli military declined to detail the weapons in its arsenal, but denied reports that the injuries came from a Dense Inert Metal Explosive (Dime), an experimental weapon

So, what is it? The story goes on to say that the injuries are typical of those hit by Dime weapons, yet Israel, as is typical, continues to deny it. Israel needs to come clean on this serious issue.

A few stories worth reading ...

First, learn about the loneliest Iraqi, a victim of the "war on terror" who has been stuck on a remote Pacific island and was featured in today's online edition of The Christian Science Monitor. Why? It's a secret, according to the Australian government and his Kafka-esque experience is taking a harsh toll on the Iraqi man.

Second ... check out this transcript I found over at Editor & Publisher this afternoon that features an interesting Q&A with reporters and White House Press Secretary Tony Snow discussing Lord Bush's signing into law the Military Commissions Act and whether there will be "secret prisons." It's very revealing and interesting when a reporter asks why Snow thinks the press is "impugning" the military for simply asking that there be oversight.

But it got even more interesting.

Prior to saying he was going to get "snarky," Snow talked of "outside actors" who would be involved in the interrogations
Well, again, because you do have accountability. You have outside actors looking in on every juncture. It is built in. And therefore, there are measures that are taken within this.

Q Who are the outside actors?

MR. SNOW: They are independent of the questioning that's going on. But they've also been trained in taking a look at what the proper guidelines are for interrogation under the law, trying to make sure that people do not go beyond the boundaries of a proper interrogation.

Q You won't say who they are --

MR. SNOW: These are people who work for the federal government who are charged with doing it.

Q They're not independent if they're working for the federal government.

MR. SNOW: They're independent of the questioning. Let me -- well, never mind. Go ahead.

So, who are they? Could they be agents of a foreign government? I wouldn't put it past the BushCo crime syndicate.

And finally, there was a story I first noticed in the Catholic weekly The Wanderer. Writer Paul Likoudis talks about secret talks to advance a sovereignty-destroying North American Union. Likoudis notes a Bilderberg-esque meeting I was completely unaware of which took place in September at a resort in the Canadian Rockies.

The local paper, The Banff (Alberta) Crag & Canyon covered the 2006 North American Forum as best they could and had three articles, all linked at their online site. It makes for some very interesting reading. Canadian citizens are not pleased about the secret policy talks being made on their soil.

And The Wanderer had a thorough list of all the attendees, ranging from think-tank types to some of Rummy's henchmen and other government officials to New World Order supporters like Dr. Robert A. Pastor, director, Center for North American Studies, American University. Pastor, you may recall, is calling for the merger of Canada, USA and Mexico into a single economic region, borders and sovereignty be danged! WorldNetDaily has been after him for months and even has a new story on him and his goals.

Not even the Moz is safe!

Remember earlier this year when I noted how singer Morrissey was hauled in for questioning by the feds for calling Lord Bush a terrorist? Now, with this unconstitutional law on the books, no thanks the the Bush crime syndicate, Moz and just about anybody can be hauled in and never heard from again!!!

Talk radio bootlickers kiss up to Lord Bush

This New York Times (yeah, I know ... sheesh!!!) article addresses how Lord Bush met with some top talk radio propagandists - Neal Boortz, Sean Hannity, Michael "Crybaby" Medved, Laura Ingraham and Mike Gallagher - and "explained" his reasoning for decisions on the "terra war," pro-illegal immigration and other critical issues for neo-cons.

Yep, Lord Bush had to get these "talkers" to rally the neo-con shock troops to support the dictator-lordship's decrees. While the Times noted the filthy Michael Savage, they didn't note caveman warrior Alex Jones who is ACTUALLY a true conservative and patriot.

While I despise all the names (except Jones, who I have the utmost respect for) above, Medved is particularly awful. And I speak from experience, because I interviewed him for a Texas newspaper and he was the biggest whiner I've ever met!

Writes Times reporter Jim Rutenberg: "On his Web site, Mr. Medved wrote how Mr. Bush spoke about his commitment to his immigration plan in terms of the fight against terrorism. He said the president made a case that if he were to give in to conservative complaints, “the nation’s enemies (and the rest of the world) would take away the belief that the president could be bullied, prodded, overwhelmed and intimidated.”

What the hell?!?!? Did you read that Orwellian paragraph? Medved says on his site, according to Rutenberg, that Lord Bush won't listen to true conservatives because to do so would be giving in to the terr'ists. This is how crazy-upside/down-insane things have become. At least we know the neo-cons are on the ropes. As Alex Jones just said, "I smell blood."

Lord Bush takes down America, one unconstitutional law at a time

While I was trying to enjoy my morning cuppa joe and a bagel at a local coffeehouse, the TV was tuned to CNN. There, on my screen was Lord Bush, surrounded by the usual cast of traitors - Gonzales, Rumsfeld, Cheney ... I think I even saw that loser Ashcroft. Yep, Lord Bush was signing the Military Commissions Act of 2006 into law. He gave some idiotic speech, saying how he's "protecting the homeland" and how this is the right thing to do and how they're combating "evil." The BushCo crime syndicate just loves to throw their lies right into our face.

Incredibly, as I type this, a dispatcher on the police scanner called for cops to check on an "Iranian male walking a dog claiming he is a political refugee." The dispatcher also said "neighbors are concerned." Will this poor sap get picked up, charged with loitering or somesuch, and end up in one of Bush's torture chambers? This stuff is happening right before our eyes, people!!

Maybe the Supreme Court will find the law unconstitutional. Maybe not. Read more here.

Cops harass bucket-wielding minister types

While driving down Lee Boulevard this afternoon, I was at a light and noticed a number of cops talking with several men holding buckets, you know, the kind they hold at intersections where they try to raise money, not unlike the firemen with their boots.

Anyway, I rolled down my window a little bit to where I could hear the cops talking. One man, apparently the leader told the cops not to harass him and his group. The cop got belligerent and replied: "I'm not harassing you, I'm doing my job." I then overheard something about permits.

But what bothered me the most was when I heard one of the cops, a Hispanic guy wearing shorts (on a cold day) say, "If you say we're harassing you one more time, I'm going to arrest you." Say what? They can't arrest you for speaking your mind. Do we or don't we still have fre speech in this country? It's insane!

Yankees pitcher dies in strange NYC plane crash

Reports out now claim that New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle was not instrument rated to fly a plane, the same plane that mysteriously crashed into a 50-story apartment building in Manhattan.

Will be interested in what the FAA and/or NTSB have to say about this tragic incident.

One lousy pilot?

This plane crashing into the apartment building in New York City this afternoon is very fishy. I just heard CNN's Anderson Cooper say that the position of the crash on the building facade was in itself, strange. Reports state that the plane took off from Teterboro, New Jersey and we all know all the high-strangeness that came out of the Garden State prior to and during 9/11. I'll leave that one alone for now.

And remember all the weird "coincidences" surrounding 9/11?

Check this out ...


upside down ...


And before I go, check out Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson's take on today's strange plane crash. Could it be a psy-op?

Downright bizarre, eh?

Wellstone needed now more than ever

I really miss Sen. Paul Wellstone.

Yeah. The "stand up, keep fighting" senator from Minnesota who wasn't afraid to speak out for the little guy and gal. Who actually represented "we the people" and boldly stood up against corporate power.

I distinctly remember when I heard about his death, this month four years ago. It really hit me hard. He was one of the few politicians that actually seemed to have a heart, something sorely missing on Capitol Hill these days. Wellstone voted against the unjust and illegal Iraq war and was called a "chickensh*t" by Pres. George H.W. Bush. Vice President Dick Cheney hated Wellstone because he knew that this short Jewish professor from Northfield, Minn. would actually fight for what he believed in.

That's why I loved Wellstone so much and contributed to his campaign. Sure, he was a Democrat but then, he actually was more than that, much more than that. He was a people person who had a conscience and an everyday decency that seems as cornball as "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington."

Before it faded to where you could barely read it, I had a bumper sticker on my car that read: "What Would Wellstone Do?" Well, Wellstone wouldn't support torturing prisoners, or expanding evil wars or allow the big corporations to become bigger and bigger monopolies. Just think how different things might be if Wellstone's plane hadn't mysteriously crashed just a week or so before his inevitable re-election.

Yeah, former Gov. Jesse Ventura may say it was pilot error but I disagree. I'm on board with Prof. Jim Fetzer, a former prof at Univ. of Minnesota-Duluth, who concludes Wellstone's plane was taken down in order to silence his progressive and truthful voice. Too much was at stake, and the New World Order couldn't risk Wellstone meddling into their affairs.

And look where we are now in 2006. War, corruption, economic uncertainty, the shredding of the Bill of Rights ... yeah, we need a Wellstone, before it's too late.

By the way, read what guest columnist David Morris has to say about Wellstone in the (Minneapolis-St. Paul) Star Tribune.

And the sheeple just snooze away ...

Saw this WAFB TV story out of Baton Rouge, La. linked over at The Dead Pelican. It's about the City of Baton Rouge wanting to place red-light cameras at busy intersections. The report states that the cameras will take pictures of license plates of red-light runners and the OWNER will receive a ticket. The owner? What if the owner isn't the one running the light. And what scares me is this portion of the story:

What may come as a surprise is that no Baton Rouge drivers we spoke with are against such a plan.
"It only takes a minute for a light to change and someone can get killed because you don't want to wait a minute," said Maretta Jackson.
Bob Moreano told WAFB 9 News, "Put (in) the cameras, and if it has to be me, then you know what, eh, I violated the law. I gotta pay like everybody else

Yeah, Baton Rouge and other lawless cities ... bring in the cameras ... put us all under surveillance. We'll be good slaves!!! We promise!!!

Hannitized ... NOT!!!

If I have time in the afternoon, I'll tune in the Wichita Falls AM radio station that airs "The Sean Hannity Show." It's mostly for entertainment reasons because, if anything, the Hannitizer is a clown and a neo-con shill for the New World Order.

The Ostroy Report has a great post on the "big, fat, lying Repuglican blowhard" who spins and lies about nearly EVERYTHING!!!

Just another mother murdered

Here's one we didn't hear much about ... how do those soldiers sleep at night?

A page and a pedophile

Page-gate scandal deepens and the Oklahoma connection becomes clearer ...

Ex-page meets with FBI
By Nolan Clay
The Oklahoman

Former congressional page Jordan Edmund arrived at 10 a.m. today for a meeting with the FBI. The FBI is investigating former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, who resigned Sept. 29.
Edmund was accompanied by his attorney, Stephen Jones, of Enid, for the meeting at the U.S. Attorney Office in downtown Oklahoma City.
Edmund, 21, had a serious expression and was carrying a large envelope. He was wearing a dark pin-striped suit and red tie.
Foley, a Florida Republican, quit after ABC News confronted him about lurid messages sent over the Internet to teenage, former male pages.
Foley, 52, has admitted through an attorney that he sent inappropriate online messages. Edmund, a Californian, was identified last week by a blogger as one of the former pages who allegedly got online instant messages from Foley. In one alleged message to Edmund, Foley wrote "strip down and get relaxed."
Edmund has been living in Oklahoma City and working as a deputy campaign manager for the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Rep. Ernest Istook. He was a U.S. House page in 2001 and 2002.
Jones said last week Edmund is willing to talk to the FBI and the House Ethics Committee. He also said Edmund "was a minor when the alleged events described in the media occurred."
Jones told CNN on Friday and confirmed Monday to The Oklahoman that there was "no physical involvement between" Edmund and Foley. The attorney also told The Oklahoman the two were never together privately.
Foley mentioned Edmund and other pages by name on the House floor in June 2002 as they finished their service. "Cherish your youth, cherish this experience, but above all cherish your families," Foley said then. "Let them know how much you appreciate them giving you this chance."

What did Rep. Istook know? I think he should be questioned by the feds as well, along with Rep. Rodney Alexander of Louisiana. I'm with Oyster over at Your Right Hand Thief, calling for Alexander's resignation. Out with Alexander, in with Libertarian Brent Sanders!!!

The deepening mystery at the bottom of the lake

The mystery of the F-89 found at the bottom of Lake Superior has deepened with the disappearance of the website and concern that the U.S. and Canadian governments may covertly try to remove the crashed jet and/or the strange round object laying nearby on the lake bed.

Dirk Vander Ploeg, writer for the American Chronicle, has been following this important story and has this report.

Boren's comments about pending Iraq invasion

As taken from, regarding a section in Bob Woodward's book "State of Denial" that notes comments made by OU Pres. David Boren regarding the idea of invading Iraq.
Pages 114-15: At the Alfalfa Club dinner in Washington, Barbara Bush reached out to an old family friend, David Boren, the Democratic former senator from Oklahoma. Was an invasion of Iraq a bad idea? Boren said yes. The former first lady reported that her husband was losing sleep over the idea but wouldn't bring it up with his son.

Istook's former page to cooperate with feds

Here are portions of a story in The Oklahoman this morning regarding Rep. Ernest Istook's page who was a victim of disgraced former congressman Mark Foley.

By Nolan Clay and Michael McNutt
The Oklahoman
Posted: October 6, 2006

OKLAHOMA CITY - A former congressional page is willing to talk to the FBI and the U.S. House Ethics Committee about former Rep. Mark Foley, his attorney said Thursday.
“He will answer fully and truthfully any questions put to him,” attorney Stephen Jones said.
Jordan Edmund, 21, has been working on Republican Rep. Ernest Istook’s gubernatorial campaign. Istook, of Warr Acres, admitted Thursday at a hastily called news conference the scandal has affected his campaign.
“Things are a distraction, but it doesn’t stop the momentum that we’ve been gaining,” Istook said.

Jones said Edmund has done nothing wrong.
“Jordan was a minor when the alleged events described in the media occurred,” Jones said. “He retained me ... to guide and assist him through a difficult investigative and media onslaught because he thought I might be able to help him.
“Jordan has authorized me to say that if he has any relevant information on the matters involving Congressman Foley, he will voluntarily present it to any appropriate official authority.”
Jones has experience with high-profile cases. He defended Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Jones confirmed he has been in contact with the FBI and that Edmund has left Oklahoma. Jones, a $5,000 contributor to Istook, said he is not being paid by the Istook campaign.
ABC News reported Foley had Internet sex with the former page before a vote. In one exchange, Foley wrote, “I miss you lots since san diego.” Edmund is from the San Diego area.

Istook dismissed as “nonsense” a question that presidential adviser Karl Rove, who will appear Monday night in Oklahoma City to raise money for Istook’s campaign, recommended he hire Edmund.

Yikes! Some have said Karl Rove was involved in this whole deal. Maybe he is. So, is this the "surprise" he warned us about? Where can this all be going? As for Istook's campaign for governor against popular incumbent Brad Henry, he needs to hang it up.

What exactly did Boren deny in Woodward's book?

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow was answering questions this afternoon about the growing Foley scandal and other issues, including Bob Woodward (who worked alongside Coast to Coast AM's George Noory when they were in the US Navy - whoa!!) and his new book "State of Denial." In the middle of answering a question, Snow mentions former Sen. David Boren and current University of Oklahoma president, and something about "denials." Denials? Hmm. Wonder what that's about? (thanks to Mike W. for the tip)

From this transcript ....

Q You said the White House is not worried about people staying home during the midterms. But in addition to the Foley scandal, and the senior Republicans forming a sort of circular firing squad -- you've got the war in Iraq going badly and you've got the Woodward book. Why would you not be worried?
MR. SNOW: Well, a couple of things. First, the Woodward book is going to be interesting, in the sense that it's fascinating to everybody here in beltway. But there are also a lot of single-sourcing problems. And, you know, there is going to be a lot of back and forth. I talked to Andy Card today, for instance, who says he was quoted accurately, but out of context. I talked with the aide to General Abizaid, who said that although General Abizaid is quoted a couple of times, he was never contacted, they never ran quotes by them, they didn't talk to him. They didn't talk to Kissinger -- he's quoted in the book. They didn't talk to Brent Scowcroft -- he's quoted. David Boren has issued some denials, as well. (What the bleep???)
Furthermore, on one of the central charges that there is a discrepancy between a couple of documents from the Pentagon -- there is none. And so you can get into the nit-picky on that, but the point is, of course -- I think what I said is voter intensity does matter and turnout matters.

And then there's the Oklahoman coverage of gubernatorial candidate U.S. Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Warr Acres, Okla.) and his comments regarding an aide from California who may have been a victim of pedophile and disgraced ex-congressman Mark Foley.

Writes the Oklahoman's Michael McNutt: “I will say nothing to confirm or to deny the name of anyone who may have been a victim of the wrongful behavior of former Congressman Mark Foley,” Istook said during a news conference outside his downtown Oklahoma City campaign headquarters.

Wonder where this is going?

Why, Rodney, why?

New Orleans-based Your Right Hand Thief goes after Louisiana Congressman Rodney Alexander for not reporting Rep. Mark Foley's illegal behavior. Awesome! By the way, my buddy Brent Sanders is running as a Libertarian against the wishy-washy, cover-up artist from Quitman. Alexander never did answer my questions about depleted uranium exposure affecting our soldiers over in the Middle East. For shame!

Detainee bill means dark future for America

Writes Chris Floyd at
It was a dark hour indeed on Thursday when the United States Senate voted to end the Constitutional Republic and transform the country into a "Leader-State," giving the president and his agents the power to capture, torture and imprison forever anyone - American citizens included - whom they arbitrarily decide is an "enemy combatant." This also includes those who merely give "terrorism" some kind of "support," defined so vaguely that many experts say it could encompass legal advice, innocent gifts to charities or even political opposition to US government policy within its draconian strictures.

All of this is bad enough - a sickening and cowardly surrender of liberty not seen in a major Western democracy since the Enabling Act passed by the German Reichstag in March 1933. But it is by no means the full extent of our degradation. In reality, the darkness is deeper, and more foul, than most people imagine. For in addition to the dictatorial powers of seizure and torment given by Congress on Thursday to George W. Bush - powers he had already seized and exercised for five years anyway, even without this fig leaf of sham legality - there is a far more sinister imperial right that Bush has claimed - and used - openly, without any demur or debate from Congress at all: ordering the "extrajudicial killing" of anyone on earth that he and his deputies decide - arbitrarily, without charges, court hearing, formal evidence, or appeal - is an "enemy combatant."

No one is safe.

Alexander speaks on 'Page-gate'

Rep. Rodney Alexander (R-La.) is finally speaking on Page-gate ... such a stand-up guy ...

Writes Greg Hilburn for The (Monroe, La.) News-Star:
U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander said a former male House page from Monroe has received threats since reports surfaced Friday that former Congressman Mark Foley sent him inappropriate e-mails.
"This teenager and his family have gone through hell," Alexander, R-Monroe, said Monday. "It's just not fair that they got caught up in this and became casualties. His mother is just broken up by it. Naturally, she's concerned about her child."

Strange times along the Potomac

The "page-gate" scandal, which is rocking Capitol Hill right now, has resulted in the resignation of Florida Congressman Mark Foley and is beginning to expose the tip of the creepy iceberg lurking in the dark waters of the Potomac.

It turns out the main page in question, a teen by all accounts, was from Louisiana and working for Rep. Rodney Alexander, a former Democrat from Quitman, La. who jumped onto the GOP ship a couple of years ago when winds began blowing their way. Anyway, Wayne Madsen, from the Wayne Madsen Report, is reporting that Rep. Alexander may have known more than he is telling, regarding Foley's sexually suggestive e-mails to congressional pages.

I hope Alexander will come forward with ALL the information he has on this subject.

And, as usual, Paul Joseph Watson, at has his finger on the pulse of what's really been going on there in the District and says as much in his latest article, "Rabbit Hole of Elitist Perversion far Deeper than Foley." It addresses a 1989 Washington Times article about "call boys" visiting the White House and the Franklin Cover-up at around that same time.

Wonder if more will be exposed?

Great Lakes 'under fire'

I grew up spending my summers at a resort on Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful area and while it's close to urban areas, it's far enough from the cities to seem remote and undisturbed, particularly in the preserved sand dune areas.

Well, when I heard there was a plan for the U.S. Coast Guard to conduct live-fire exercises, I was very angry. They say they are practicing to be ready for a potential attack from terrorists who may cross from Canada into the U.S. via the Great Lakes. What a joke! The Coast Guard is only going to ruin the peace and beauty of the lakes, will befoul the lakes with lead bullets (we all know what lead does to people, animals and the ecosystem) turn pleasure boating areas into war zones and make it generally unsafe. There have been two dozen live fire exercises already this year. As a former Michigander, lover of the Great Lakes, and overall peace-loving person, I am furious about the Coast Guard's action on MY lakes. This is going to negatively affect the Michigan economy in that charter boat operators and other folks who depend on the state's tourism economy. I heard in one article that the car ferries operating out of Muskegon and Ludington will have to navigate through live fire zones. This is insane! Go here to express your concern.

Click here to check out the Coast Guard "Safety Zones" on their website.

Also, the Canadian people and government are not pleased by this plan. The (Toronto) Globe & Mail reports in an article titled "Great Lakes machine guns raise ire in Canada." The article makes a lot of good points.

From the G&M article: “It was a big surprise on both sides of the border. At first I thought it was an Internet hoax,” said Mike Bradley, the mayor of Sarnia, Ont., who has written a letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper asking him to intervene.
The longest undefended border in the world is gone. It's passé. And this is an example of it.”

Sad, but true.

Shreveport dentist dies after being poisoned/ strange 9-11 link

I recall reading this strange story of Shreveport, Louisiana-based dentist David Graham, who reported in 2004 of being poisoned, this after telling the FBI he had run into three alleged 9/11 plotters who were being hosted by a Bossier City-based Pakistani man, Jamal Khan. Who is the mysterious Khan and where is he now?

Anyway, at the time of the Graham incident, I wondered if anything else would come of it. Of course I was particularly interested in it because of the Louisiana connection. Sadly, the man succumbed to the poisoning.

The story was mentioned last week on KTBS Channel 3 in Shreveport and picked up by several blogs, including The Buck Stops Here and Cannonfire. Not surprisingly, there's no mention of Graham's unusual death or the circumstances surrounding it in the local daily, the Gannett-owned Shreveport Times. That paper has dropped the ball time and again on some big stories, like the crop circle story I did three years ago. Yep, it was an actual crop circle that appeared in an overgrown, weed-choked vacant lot behind the Shreve City shopping center in the spring of 2003.

Wellstone plane downed by 'pilot error' says Ventura

Was listening to Alex Jones's interesting interview with former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, played on "The Alex Jones Show" on GCN.

After discussing government complicity in terror attacks, Jones asks Ventura about Minnesota Gov. Paul Wellstone's plane crash in 2002 and whether or not it was taken down or simply crashed due to pilot error. Ventura got very loud at this question and said it was "pilot error" and that "I would've never flown that day." He then dismissed Prof. Jim Fetzer's research (which would include his book "American Assassination" which I reviewed for a Louisiana newspaper almost two years ago). I wonder if Fetzer (who will be on "Hannity and Colmes" tonight) will respond to Ventura's comments on the Jones show.

Roberts: 'Why Bush Will Nuke Iran'

In his latest, hard-hitting column, Paul Craig Roberts doesn't mince words. Check out the first two paragraphs:
The neoconservative Bush administration will attack Iran with tactical nuclear weapons, because it is the only way the neocons believe they can rescue their goal of U.S. (and Israeli) hegemony in the Middle East.
The U.S. has lost the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan. Generals in both war theaters are stating their need for more troops. But there are no troops to send.
Bush has tried to pawn Afghanistan off on NATO, but Europe does not see any point in sacrificing its blood and money for the sake of American hegemony. The NATO troops in Afghanistan are experiencing substantial casualties from a revived Taliban, and European governments are not enthralled over providing cannon fodder for U.S. hegemony

Jesse 'The Mind' Ventura questions official 9/11 fairy tale

Great piece by Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson about former Minnesota Governor and wrestling star Jesse Ventura saying that he doesn't buy the 9/11 fairy tale peddled by our corrupt government.
I'm glad to see Ventura is standing up for truth. I wish he had looked into the anomalies surrounding the downing of Sen. Paul Wellstone's plane in October 2002, while Ventura was governor of Minnesota. Who knows, maybe he will say something in the near future.

Oh, and I totally hope Kinky Friedman is the next governor of Texas!

'Say No to the New World Order' message crosses the pond

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the "Where's George" concept. Basically, people write or stamp "Go to '' and see where this bill has been" (or some variation of that). You then go to the site and enter the serial number information and you can track it as it makes its way around the country (or world, even!). It's quite fun and addictive. I've been involved with WG off and on since 1999 when I did a story on it for a Louisiana newspaper.

Anyway, I got a couple of WG bills at a local convenience store. When I typed in their serial numbers, I found they had come from Claremore, Oklahoma in the northeastern part of the state. Pretty neat. Now, I'm not nearly as involved with WG as I used to be but I figured I'd check to see if any bills I've entered in the past seven years had been found recently.

Well, as it turns out, on this very day, in Lakenheath, United Kingdom, a bill I had entered in October 2003, three years ago, had been found. As I wrote at the time on "I had a funny feeling I had a WG bill in my wallet this morning. Just as I was pulling out money to put in the collection plate there it was. I remember I got the bill as change at a gun show in Lafayette, LA on 10/25/03.Neat, huh?"

Now, the guy who found the bill I had entered in 2003 noted that at the top of the bill someone (ahem!!) had written "Say No to the New World Order." The British guy noted that he was "going to write 'suck it' on its back in the circle with the eagle." Wow! My anti NWO message was read by some anonymous Brit. What a small world, eh?

Why do the neocons hate us?

Good post over at Kurt Nimmo's Another Day In the Empire site titled "Krauthammer, Iran and the End of Days." This one deals with the neocons desire to unite us against an "enemy" because it's good for the "state." Of course that "enemy" may not really be a threat, and in the case of Iran, there is no evidence that they pose a threat at all, despite what neocon radio talk show hosts (like Glenn Beck, as I type this) tell you.

Yes, Karl Rove speaks of an "October Surprise." Is it the head of Bin Laden? An attack on Iran? With Rove and his ilk, it's easy to think the worst. These guys are vermin who are willing to take us all down in order to achieve their nefarious goals.

Raimondo column notes what Ahmadinejad, Chavez really said at UN

Justin Raimondo's latest column, "World Politics and Showbiz," addresses the recent events at the United Nations General Assembly and specifically the comments made by Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez and Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

And as I sit here, neocon shill Glenn Beck (who can be amusing at times) is saying Ahmadinejad (whom Beck calls "President Tom") is preparing to attack us and/or Israel. He and many other neocon scum have been saying this, based on what? What proof do they have?
Yet, at a press conference, Ahmadinejad says: "And let me say that at the same time, we are Muslims. And based on a decree given by the leader of the Islamic republic, moving toward having a nuclear bomb is banned and forbidden. Therefore, no one has the right to move in this direction. In our country, it is not permissible."

So, what is it? Why are we about to go to war, destroying America in the process? Granted, Ahmadinejad is scarily slick and isn't cool when it comes to giving his people full freedom. Yet, you have to look at what he is saying and study it. Dismissing it out of hand is stupid and dangerous. These neocons know it, yet as Raimondo says in his column the pro-war propaganda in the media plays on the fears of the public on a "primordial, sub-literate level."

This is all insanity and in light of plotter Karl Rove calling for an "October Surprise." I wonder what the surprise will be?

'Dusty' Todd Whitman needs to be investigated

I remember in the days after the 9/11 inside job that the government, namely the Environmental Protection Agency, seemed careless when it came to making sure people were aware of how dangerous the air was in and around the WTC Ground Zero site.
When the neocons took down the towers and that toxic cloud of horrors enveloped the southern tip of Manhattan, I mean, what moron wouldn't realize it was dangerous and potentially deadly.

And now people are dying because of our corrupt government.Well, more and more is being discovered about then-EPA head Christie (Dusty) Todd Whitman, the person who allowed folks to live and work down there, covering up the danger that people faced. Now people are dying.

And whistleblowers are being harassed by government thugs for daring to speak out about the issue.Now the Murdoch-owned New York Post has a shocking article about Whitman and her complicity in putting people at risk. The article also notes that Whitman had a conflict of interest because of financial interests (Port Authority and Citigroup-Travelers). Whitman needs to be indicted. I hope the investigation begins soon.

Chavez speech simply sizzles, blasts BushCo

Holy Toledo!!! Have you read the transcript of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's speech at the United Nations today? He totally smokes the neocon/BushCo crime syndicate while offering a message of hope. He calls Bush "The Devil" and talks of the CIA-staged coup that nearly resulted in his own death. It was awe-inspiring!

The following portion of the transcript (from The Drudge Report) was particularly revealing, discussing how our own government covers up for terrorist acts perpetrated and/or supported by dark forces within our own government.

CHAVEZ (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): President Michelle Bachelet reminded us just a moment ago of the horrendous assassination of the former foreign minister, Orlando Letelier.
And I would just add one thing: Those who perpetrated this crime are free. And that other event where an American citizen also died were American themselves. They were CIA killers, terrorists.
And we must recall in this room that in just a few days there will be another anniversary. Thirty years will have passed from this other horrendous terrorist attack on the Cuban plane, where 73 innocents died, a Cubana de Aviacion airliner. And where is the biggest terrorist of this continent who took the responsibility for blowing up the plane? He spent a few years in jail in Venezuela. Thanks to CIA and then government officials, he was allowed to escape, and he lives here in this country, protected by the government. And he was convicted. He has confessed to his crime.
But the U.S. government has double standards. It protects terrorism when it wants to. And this is to say that Venezuela is fully committed to combating terrorism and violence. And we are one of the people who are fighting for peace. Luis Posada Carriles is the name of that terrorist who is protected here. And other tremendously corrupt people who escaped from Venezuela are also living here under protection: a group that bombed various embassies, that assassinated people during the coup.
They kidnapped me and they were going to kill me, but I think God reached down and our people came out into the streets and the army was too, and so I'm here today. But these people who led that coup are here today in this country protected by the American government. And I accuse the American government of protecting terrorists and of having a completely cynical discourse.

I hope everyone will read this. While I don't agree on his support of dictator Fidel Castro, he is right on on what he says about actions by our government.

Unrest in Hungary, coup in Thailand, silence in USA

Last night, when I came back from my supper break, I heard a radio report noting that rioters were running wild in Budapest, Hungary. Details were sketchy and it caught my attention because my brother is living there.

So, I went and checked the Internet and found out why they were rioting - because socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany had candidly admitted that he and his government had totally lied about the Hungarian economy in order to be re-elected. Gyurcsany was taped saying: "We lied morning, noon and night." He also said they had accomplished nothing for the past two-and-a-half years.

My brother said he was only nominally aware of the violence and protests. He said he'd keep us posted.

Then, half-way across the globe in normally stable Thailand, a military coup took over that country's government while Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was in New York attending the United Nations General Assembly. It is unclear at this time what this coup means or what will happen when Shinawatra returns. This is one to watch.

And then in our country, the United States of America, your average Joe or Jill is wandering about totally unaware of the tyranny that is being installed in our great Republic. WAKE UP AMERICA, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!

Noted war criminal calls for 'new world order'

The "gloves" appear to be coming off among those nesting with the upper crust of the global elite. This morning this was made all too clear when I saw an AP story, linked through The Drudge Report, where former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, a war criminal and he of the fake foreign accent, scolds Europe and says that America and Europe need to unite against the "growing" threat from those backward countries in the Middle East and Asia. He's dropping phrases like "war of civilizations."

Says Henry: "We now know that we face the imperative of building a new world order or potential global catastrophe. It cannot be done alone by either side of the Atlantic. Is that realization sufficient to regenerate a common purpose?"

It's your sons and daughters (and the rest of us, eventually) who are going to die in these future wars due to the scheming of the likes of Kissinger, Bush and this international gang of scum. Don't forget what Kissinger thinks about soldiers, as noted in this well-known quote: “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” - Henry Kissinger, quoted in “Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POW’s in Vietnam

In fact, when looking for that quote, I found it in the body of an anti-war post over at Oklahoma Indymedia titled "US Military Uses Dirty Bombs: THAT'S Why They Hate Us, GW." It's all about our government's use of depleted uranium, something I've written about before, here at Spelunking.

Shouting truth to power

My good friend J. Andrew was at UNC in Chapel Hill tonight and did a very courageous thing as former attorney general John Ashcroft spoke at a conservative forum at that North Carolina university. He stood up and said "Why didn't you take any commercial jet flights in the months prior to 9/11?"

Apparently, Ashcroft tried to paint it as a conspiratorial fairy tale. Yet, if you check it out, as I did, it's true. Ashcroft did avoid commercial jet travel in the summer of '01. Here's a link for you.

And a big shout out to J. Andrew for his brave stand in that auditorium full of Bushites. He's a true inspiration. He told me that after Ashcroft finished and all these people were clapping for Ashcroft, J. Andrew got up and said, "Google it!" AWESOME!!!

Good 9/11 resource

A great round-up of the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 inside job can be found at 9/11 Blogger, which is also a terrific, online resource for 9/11 truthseekers.

DU train

The following was emailed to me over the weekend. It comes from a trusted source. I wonder what it means ...

At the Lake Charles, Louisiana gun show last weekend, a witness told of being stopped at a railroad crossing by a train load of "knocked-out" Abrahms tanks! He told of one of the five or six tanks having a hole "this big" (gesturing to about two and a half feet in diameter) in the turret...!??
As well as other signs of trauma to the others. Is this Hezbollah weapon being used against US troops? Sure looks like it. IED's do not kill Abrahms tanks. Unless they are real big. 'Course, that train was spread fine particles of DU along the tracks! Abrahms tanks have DU sandwiched between the Chobham layers. When hit with kinectic energy or high expolsive rounds, DU spalls off in microscopic particles finer than that capable of being filtered out by military gas masks!!!

There has been one incident on the C3 (controlled, commercial, co-dependent) news wherein a US tanker is seen on fire bailing out of his burning Abrahms! Nothing else that I am aware of.


This is disconcerting. I recall hearing about a similar train passing through rural Kansas. Imagine the children that could come into contact with this train while traveling through their communities. It's outrageous what our government is getting away with.

Osama bin Forgotten is deep in his Afghani cave (yeah, right!)

Except for the spewage coming across the radio waves today (your pick of neocon nitwits, I largely avoided dwelling on any 9/11 remembrance propaganda. I was kind of wanting to go to the Freedom Walk in Oklahoma City and hold my "9/11 Was an Inside Job" placard, but because of other responsibilities didn't get the opportunity to do so. However, I did come across a few choice columns today, including this one from's Justin Raimondo (check out the link to the curious Haaretz article linked towards the end ... hmmm) and this cranky column from Mad Cow Morning News' Daniel Hopsicker.

And those are just a couple of the ones I came across today in my free time. Yup, it's five years later. Someone at work asked me about my thoughts about 9/11 and I said: "Nine-eleven, huh? I'm tired of those numbers because they remind of how much my government lies to me." The woman responded with a knowing nod. I'm just glad more people are warming up to the idea that cold-blooded killers within their own government hatched this whole 9/11 scheme with ruthless precision.

And what of Osama bin Laden? Who the hell knows. Check out this UK Guardian article headlined "The hunt." Check out this paragraph: Rarely has so much brought so little. The US has spent billions on the search. It has mobilised armies, bribed informers, bullied allies, emptied bank accounts, tapped phones, abducted suspects and assassinated his henchmen. It has, without a doubt, seriously damaged al-Qaida's ability to carry out terrorist attacks. Yet still the scarlet pimpernel of jihad roams free.

Roams free, eh? I wouldn't go that far. All indications are that Osama has long since died, back in some Western hospital in Dubai. Or perhaps in a cave. No one is really quite sure.

9/11 truthers gaining ground, noted in MSM

Interesting piece in the Washington Post today (linked through Marc Parent's LiveJournal) headlined: "9/11 conspiracy theorists multiply
Many Americans suspect U.S. government involvement or complicity."
This was written in advance of Monday's five-year anniversary of the government-sponsored terror attack on 9/11/01. I love how former Bush administration official Morgan O. Reynolds, who believes in government complicity on 9/11 calls his former boss a "dysfunctional creep."

Brigham Young U. prof on paid leave following 9/11 truth research

The Deseret News in Salt Lake City is reporting today that 9/11 Truthseeker, Prof. Steven Jones, has been placed on paid leave from his teaching job at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Writes reporter Tad Walch: PROVO — Brigham Young University placed physics professor Steven Jones on paid leave Thursday while it reviews his involvement in the so-called "9/11 truth movement" that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.
BYU will conduct an official review of Jones' actions before determining a course of action, university spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said. Such a review is rare for a professor with "continuing status" at BYU, where Jones has taught since 1985.
Jones was teaching two classes this semester, which began Tuesday. Other professors will cover those classes, and Jones will be allowed to continue to do research in his area of academic study, Jenkins said.
Jones became a celebrity among 9/11 conspiracy-theory groups after he wrote a paper titled "Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Collapse?" The paper was published two weeks ago in the book "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out" and lays out Jones' hypothesis that the three towers fell because of pre-positioned demolition charges — not because of the planes that hit two of the towers.

This is an outrage and a serious threat to academic freedom. So, if a professor takes an unpopular stance on a subject, they are in danger of being kicked out? This is horrible. Don't you all see where this is leading? Pretty soon they'll be passing legislation which will deny public universities funding if they don't embrace the status quo. We need to stop this trend in its tracks, and now!

Left gatekeepers at Air America force Garofalo, Malloy off the air

I guess the corporate leftists at Air America are getting nervous that 9/11 truth is getting discussed on their network a little too much. As a result, Air America personalities Janeane Garofalo and Mike Malloy (who was on Alex Jones' show last month) have been forced off the air.

Popular CNN anchor a CIA plant?

It was revealed today over at Radar Online that popular CNN anchor Anderson Cooper is not only a Yalie (Skull & Bones, perhaps? Like Washington Post's Dana Milbank?) he's also a former CIA intern. Can you say "Operation Mockingbird," gang? I never cared for Cooper, particularly with the way he's dismissed 9/11 Truth. Now I understand him a little better.

Terror drill in Chicago on Thursday

Always be wary of government-sanctioned "terror drills." This time there will be one in Chicago tomorrow (Thursday). Remember on 9/11 there were drills going on. Conveniently used to confuse the good people in our gov't/military.

Break in Johnny Gosch abduction mystery?

After the zany antics of White House man-whore Jeff Gannon in early '05, the "Internets" were abuzz with theories linking the mysterious bald man with a more-than two-decade old mystery that had it's roots in suburban Des Moines, Iowa - namely the mystery surrounding Des Moines Register paperboy Johnny Gosch, who disappeared while delivering papers on Sept. 5, 1982.

As I reported at Slice O' Life back in early '05, there were a lot of strange things about Gannon (aka James Guckert) and who he really was. He was basically outed as a male prostitute and frequent visitor to the White House after hours. Hmmm ...

Anyway, when the Johnny Gosch/Jeff Gannon connection was made, well, it was surreal. I think the whole thing peaked when "Gannon" appeared on a show denying his being Gosch, while taking a lie detector test. I still think there's a strong likelihood "Gannon" is Gosch. They would be about the same age.

Anyway, I was shocked to see today that Noreen Gosch, Johnny's mother, came forward this week telling the police and the media that some photos appeared on her doorstep appearing to be young Johnny and some other kidnapped boys, pictures taken within hours or days after his abduction.

"It's like reliving it," Noreen Gosch told The Associated Press on Thursday night. "But the bigger picture is, 'Why are they doing this?'
"Whoever had these photos had them for 24 years. I don't understand why they would do this now. It must be some kind of message."

Why are they doing this? Who are they? Are the photos even real? This needs to be seriously scrutinized.

So far, Raw Story and the excellent Rigorous Intuition blogs have picked up this story, and with RI, Jeff Wells has some of his usual, insightful comments.

BushCo fatigue growing across the land

This new Christian Science Monitor article by Tom Regan notes a number of new polls showing Americans are not only sick of the illegal war in Iraq but weary of dishonest Dubya.

Writes Regan: A new CNN poll shows that only about one-third of Americans now support the war in Iraq, with 61 percent opposed. Fifty-one percent of Americans see President Bush as a strong leader, although he doesn't do well in other areas of the survey.

Most Americans (54 percent) don't consider him honest, most (54 percent) don't think he shares their values and most (58 percent) say he does not inspire confidence.
Bush's stand on the issues is also problematic, with more than half (57 percent) of Americans saying they disagree with him on the issues they care about. That's an indication that issues, not personal characteristics, are keeping his approval rating well below 50 percent ...

Bush dismissed a question about his popularity during a news conference Monday.
"I don't think you've ever heard me say: 'Gosh, I better change positions because the polls say this or that,'" he told reporters. "I've been here long enough to understand, you cannot make good decisions if you're trying to chase a poll." He added, "I'm going to do what I think is right, and if, you know, if people don't like me for it, that's just the way it is

The aftermath of Israel's attack on Lebanon

Justin Raimondo lays out just how bad things are in Lebanon (i.e. unexploded cluster bombs in civilian neighborhoods, etc.) in the wake of the Israeli government's ruthless assault on Lebanon last month.

UK Slavery Inc. takes police state even further

British Prime Minister-fuhrer Tony Blair, the megalomaniacal and sinister control freak wants the Orwellian STATE to control the lives of babies born to teenage mothers BEFORE the babies are born, as noted in this UK Daily Mail article. This is the latest effort to totally control the lives of British citizens, just a day after I see that the New York Times edits content in its online newspaper so as not to break British laws. What a joke. It shows me what an embarrassment the Times has become.

And as Mike at asks: "(S)eriously, one also has to wonder at how much pressure these young women will be facing to terminate these pregnancies, something this article carefully avoids mentioning."

As noted in that UK Daily Mail article:
Tony Blair has unveiled a provocative campaign to crack down on future problem children before they are even born.
He set out plans for massively increased state intervention in the homes of 'nuisance' families to tackle anti-social behaviour.

In a desperate attempt to show that his premiership has not run out of steam despite increasing demands from Labour MPs for him to step down, he said 'pre-birth' action would be taken if necessary.
The plan for what were promptly dubbed 'Fasbos' - anti- social behaviour orders for foetuses - prompted outrage at Westminster last night. Critics dubbed it the ultimate encroachment of the nanny state into the home. Labour MPs fear that Mr Blair, who yesterday was still refusing to publish a detailed timetable for his departure, is trying to shackle his expected successor Gordon Brown to contentious policies in the dying days of his regime.

Neocon strategy to destroy and reshape Middle East, South Asia

Thanks to Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson over at, (check out Watson's excellent article!!!) I've been alerted to an Armed Forces Journal article written by retired Maj. Ralph Peters, along with an accompanying map, showing a NEW Middle East, that shows how he and other bloodthirsty neocons want to put their stamp on the region. I mean, just check out this line: "Oh, and one other dirty little secret from 5,000 years of history: Ethnic cleansing works."

This is the way these gangsters think. They will do anything to have our country involved in perpetual war. And we wonder why "they hate us". It's frightening and sick and is what we're facing in the very near future if these monsters aren't stopped.

Iraq war vet under fire for raising questions about 9/11

This is outrageous! Some unpatriotic jerk - Colonel Luke S. Green, Chief of Staff at Fifth Army in Ft. Sam Houston, Texas - has initiated an investigation into a heroic soldier named Sgt. 1st Class Donald Buswell for answering an unsolicited email involving controversial issues surrounding 9/11. For daring to question the lies spewed by BushCo, Buswell is under investigation, as noted in this story by the Lone Star Iconoclast.

Achtung! Papers, please!

The corrupt Bush administration (oxymoron?) is further clamping down on press freedoms as the New Amerika is created right in front of our eyes (North American Union, anyone?)

Writes the hardworking and brave reporter Wayne Madsen, over at Wayne Madsen Report, writes the following while on assignment in Scandinavia:
Information visas (I-Visa) -- a Bush administration method for controlling the foreign media's coverage of the United States.
You're a foreign journalist and you want to visit the United States to cover a story. If you think it is as easy as hopping on an airplane, even if you are a citizen or resident of a visa-waiver country, guess again. Journalists wishing to travel to the United States -- whether they are with print, television, radio, or Internet media -- must first obtain an "I-Visa" from the U.S. embassy or selected consulates responsible for their jurisdictions. Freelance journalists who are not under contract to a U.S.-recognized media organization need not apply

(and the foreign reporters now are required to jump through all sorts of hoops to get an I-visa. This isn't Soviet Russia or the Eastern Bloc circa 1970. Where's the freedom, freedom-lovers?


What happens if the Bush cronies decide they do not like the story a foreign journalist will be pursuing? They will reject the I-Visa application -- no explanation necessary. But if the rejected journalist expects a refund of his or her $108, $102, or $100, he or she can guess again. According to the U.S. embassy in Germany, "refunds of this fee are rarely granted, and generally only in cases in which the embassy has made an error in processing the visa application. In the case in which a visa request has been refused or an applicant has erroneously paid the fee twice, a refund will not be approved."

Opposition mounts against Texas governor and his support of TTC

This Trans-Texas Corridor is becoming more unpopular by the day. And with the Texas gubernatorial race well underway, Gov. Rick Perry is feeling the sting.

As reported in the Houston Chronicle in a new article headlined "Perry's vision for rural highway could become a political pothole."

Writes Chronicle reporter R.G. Ratcliffe: All four of Perry's re-election challengers oppose the corridor. Democrat Chris Bell, independent Kinky Friedman and Libertarian James Werner all have spoken out against it. Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn, running as an independent, attended many of the hearings and called the project the "Trans-Texas Catastrophe" while promising to stop Perry's "land-grabbing highway henchmen."
One of Perry's fellow Republicans on the statewide ballot — U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison — also has criticized the project, saying it imposes too heavily on rural landowners.
The Republican Party of Texas in June passed a plank in its platform calling for the repeal of legislation authorizing the Trans-Texas Corridor. The Texas Farm Bureau — a longtime Perry political supporter — wants the state to scrap the project

Ratcliffe also notes that over 14,000 Texans came out to public forums expressing their opposition to arrogant Perry's American Union superboondoggle. I'm sure there are many more who are against the Trans-Texas Corridor and rightly so. In fact, my old stomping grounds in good ol' Ellis County, Texas would be split in two, right down the middle. I'm glad the Ellis County Press (and columnist and friend Jimmie Simmons in particular) is coming out against the TTC.

Boren admin. covers up prank 'terror' event at OU library

Great work from Bellaciao writer Mike Wright out of Norman, Oklahoma. This time, he writes about University of Oklahoma Pres. David Boren covering up an event in the OU library where students had a prank "terror" attack using Super Soaker water guns. This happened in Oct. 2005, just weeks after Joel Henry Hinrichs III blew himself up outside OU Memorial Stadium. And, when an alum tried to alert campus police HE was punished and banned from campus for six months. This is yet another example of Boren and his henchman using their power and CIA connections to cover up any bad news that may put the university in a poor light. Keep up the good work, Mike!

DU : An atrocity against people and the planet

Several times on this blog I've noted stories I've come across addressing the insidiousness of depleted uranium. It is nasty, nasty stuff and our government has used it over and over - thousands upon thousands of tons of this stuff in munitions and bombs used in the Middle East and Central Asia. It causes sicknesses ranging from cancer to genetic mutations and worse.

As noted over at Marc Parent's LiveJournal blog, using depleted uranium is a war crime and leads not just to genocide against defenseless human beings but "omnicide" in this article headlined "Doing the Wrong Thing in Afghanistan: Depleted Uranium, The Definitive Moral Paradox."

Writes contributer Michael Clark: "Tragically, every air strike uses bombs and missiles that are encased and ballasted with depleted uranium (DU) which aerosolizes upon impact, instantaneously being released into the atmosphere as insoluble ceramic uranium oxide nanoparticles.
Its gaseous characteristics allow DU to remain suspended in the air and be distributed around the earth as a radioactive component of atmospheric dust, contaminating the environment and indiscriminately killing, maiming and causing disease in all living things wherever rain, snow and moisture remove it from the atmosphere.Nuclear experts agree that DU is a weapon for killing lots of people that keeps on killing forever.
It meets the U.S. government’s own definitions of weapons of mass destruction. And there is no way to ever clean it up."

And yet very few people talk about this subject. I was only a baby during the Vietnam War, so I don't remember people talking about Agent Orange. This is our generation's Agent Orange, only it's on a global scale and far worse.

August 22nd

It's August 22nd. Another day in the empire, so to speak. And yet, all seems well, despite the fearmongering of the neocon nutcases.

Venezuelan government captures four US spies

Is it just me, or does Hugo Chavez seem like a character straight out of Woody Allen's 1971 film "Bananas"? (one of my favorite Woody Allen films, by the way, next to "Stardust Memories").

Check out this paragraph and Chavez quote in a new AP article on the American spies captured in Venezuela: Speaking to a sea of supporters, Chavez read the name of the official named by (John) Negroponte to head the Cuba and Venezuela mission, 32-year intelligence veteran J. Patrick Maher, and laughed.
"They selected 'Jack the Ripper,"' Chavez said. "What a little problem this is

Chavez then went on to say: "These are signs that the empire doesn't rest," Chavez said, referring to the U.S. "The plan to try to destabilize us has already begun."

Fleeing into the wilderness

I've been suspicious of Mike Ruppert for several years now. Suspicious that he was a CIA operative and Peak (snake) Oil salesman. Well, I came across this curious From the Wilderness report from Ruppert saying that he has fled the United States to begin a new life in Venezuela.

I understand he's worried about his future, following some alarming attacks on his office in Oregon. Still, I would've expected him to stay in the U.S. until the bitter end. Will be interesting to read his Latin American dispatches from here on out.

Scum rises to the top

Jeff Wells over at the excellent Rigorous Intuition blog has an interesting analysis of the hoopla over this sick, creepy bastard John Karr, who is claiming to have murdered Jon Benet Ramsey.

When I first saw a picture of this guy I instinctively could tell that he was pedophile scum. Still, I have my doubts that he killed Jon Benet. I always leaned towards the theory that the older brother did it and the parents covered up for him.

Summer camp it ain't

Just a flashback to this Pacific News Service story from February where they discuss how Halliburton/Kellogg, Brown & Root are starting to build detention camps "for an emergency influx of immigrants. M'kay ...

Writes the PNS: It is clear that the Bush administration is thinking seriously about martial law.
Many critics have alleged that FEMA's spectacular failure to respond to Katrina followed from a deliberate White House policy: of paring back FEMA, and instead strengthening the military for responses to disasters. A multimillion program for detention facilities will greatly increase NORTHCOM's ability to respond to any domestic disorders.

People don't really realize that they are slaves. Cameras everywhere, high taxes, insanity reigning at your local airport ... and it ain't going to get better.

Strange beasts

I'm sure many of you have seen the photos and reports on the wolf-like "hybrid-mutant" found dead in Maine, a report that has received international attention. I'm sure folks in Latin America are amused by all this attention, considering how common chupacabra and alien sightings are in that part of the world. The best information came from Cryptomundo, a great site for those interested in cryptozoology.

And over at Cryptomundo, they continue to note the strange Bigfoot sightings reported on the isolated Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

It's very curious. The creature, whatever it is, is an enormous beast with unusual features on its head, at least according to this report from Pine Ridge police officer James Twiss: "the first two sightings was called in as a tall (10 to 15 feet tall) who appeared to be wearing a stovepipe hat and long coat. It was reported to be peeking into a apartment complex commons room where there was several witnesses."

Twiss notes in his report that a similar, stovepipe-hat-wearing creature with a long coat was reported in the same area 20 years earlier. Very "Mothman Prophecies"-esque. Eerie!

9/11 truth is getting increased exposure!

The 9/11 Truth movement continues to make headway in our fight against the belligerent neocons. The latest victory was Alex Jones getting WorldNetDaily to issue a retraction to a story - "9/11 Bush Bashers" - written by neocon tool Jonathon Moseley. This came after a contentious interview on "The Alex Jones Show" yesterday where Jones and 9/11 truther Prof. Jim Fetzer lay into Moseley and show him the error of his ways. It was beautiful!

Folks, we are making advances in getting the truth out there regarding what really happened on 9/11. It's obvious to me that the neocons are getting nervous and feeling cornered because the truth is being exposed to the light of day. When I saw that obnoxious editorial this past week in The Oklahoman, attacking the movement, sure, I was angry, but after I settled down I knew that this was very good because we truthseekers are in the majority! The cover-up artists at papers like The Oklahoman or the Sheboygan Press in Wisconsin ... they are getting hammered with emails and letters from people who are tired of the lies!

Just go to or www.whatreallyhappened or or any number of worthy truth sites and discover for yourself how your government has been lying to you since the day of the attacks.

Strange missile startles Hawaiians

The Drudge Report is noting a Honolulu Star-Bulletin story today which reports that a UFO flew over a Hilo, Hawaii airport.

"That witness saw a silver tube with no markings or fins, trailing "vapor" that quickly dispersed." The witness also noted that the missile-like object made a sound that was "super loud."

In light of the mock drill scheduled in Hawaii this week, you never know what they're up to.

Wisconsin professor infuriates neo-cons

Here's an interesting Christian Science Monitor piece titled "Teacher's radical 9/11 views raise red flags."

Writes Monitor reporter Amanda Paulson: According to Kevin Barrett, the US government planned and carried out the 9/11 attacks, the World Trade Center imploded due to explosives set up ahead of time in the buildings, Minnesota Sen. Paul Wellstone's plane crash was no accident, and Osama bin Laden has probably been dead since 2001.
Mr. Barrett is not a radical anarchist or a teenager peddling conspiracy theories; he's a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin, Madison - a fact that has outraged some state politicians.
The case has drawn national attention and provided grist for conservative talk-show hosts, while the university has been deluged with e-mails against Barrett. Yet it has stuck by the decision to have him teach a planned course on Islam this fall.


Alex Jones blasts nattering neo-con tool

This is great! Alex "The Bulldog" Jones lays into Jonathon Moseley on today's "The Alex Jones Show" (linked here through
Moseley is a neocon tool who attacks 9/11 truthers in a WorldNetDaily piece o' propaganda ludicrously titled "9/11 Bush Bashers."

Justin and Dustin

The post below this notes how The Oklahoman is quick to sneer at "conspiracy theories." Well, what about Joel Henry Hinrichs III, the OU junior who blew himself up outside OU Memorial Stadium last October? Remember, he tried to buy some ammonium nitrate at a feed store in Norman prior to his "suicide bombing."

And now we have two young men, Justin O'Dell and Dustin Wedgeworth, in jail tonight, further down Interstate 35 in San Antonio, Texas. Why? Because these two lads tried stealing some ammonium nitrate and blasting caps, as reported by San Antonio station KSAT.

So, what were Justin and Dustin up to? Are they dupes like Headless Joe Hinrichs the OU suicide bomber? It's scary to think about. Just glad these two jerks got caught.

Oklahoman dismisses truth seekers (no surprise!)

The heads-in-the-sand editorial board of The Oklahoman continues to spread their neocon propaganda. It's just sad.

Conspiracy bombs keep dropping

Oklahoman Editorial
Posted: August 15, 2006

EVEN BEFORE the smoke cleared on the bombing of the Murrah Building, conspiracy theorists began speculating not only on who had done the deed but on how the explosives in a rental truck could not have done so much damage.
Given that the events of Sept. 11, 2001, were witnessed by so many, we didn’t think conspiracy theorists could find much fodder in the destruction of the World Trade Center. We were wrong. People with apparently nothing better to do are claiming the Twin Towers, subject of a Oliver Stone movie that premiered last week, were brought down by explosives rather than by the jumbo jets that were flown into them.
This sick and twisted theory joins a long list of 9/11-related garbage spewing mostly from people who dislike — to put it mildly — President Bush. Indeed, the key difference between the Murrah bombing conspiracy theorists and the 9/11 version is that the former are generally from the rabid right and the latter are definitely in the loony left.
Another difference: With the bombing, not much academic prowess was evident. With 9/11, leaders of the pack are university types. (Another argument against tenure?)
Politicians who attach themselves to these “causes” should proceed with caution. An Oklahoma legislator, Republican Charles Key, was a leading author of confusion regarding the bombing and lost his seat. Unfortunately he’s attempting a comeback.
U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, the in-again, out-again Georgia congresswoman, will be out again come the new year. She disgraced herself after 9/11 by claiming Bush knew the attacks were coming but did nothing to stop them. She was trounced last week in a Democratic runoff.
Conspiracy theories surrounding national tragedies are nothing new. Folks still claim the “real killers” of President Lincoln weren’t brought to justice. Imagine how strange things would have been in 1865 had the Internet been available to spread ignorance and paranoia.

Uneasy feelings

Unlike The Eagles, I'm not having that "peaceful easy feeling" right now. I'm seeing signs all over the place where the neocon/globalists are conspiring to drag us into a full-blown World War III scenario. This week seems to be a critical time, considering the upcoming drill in Hawaii, military movements in the Heartland and the phony air scare in England.

People I've talked to seem to sense something is in the air. 9/11 truth is getting more exposure. Alex Jones, as I've noted, suspects something big will go down between now and mid-October. We have to be vigilant and aware of what these evil people are up to. Don't watch Fox News for your information, go to, or any number of sites linked here.

9/11 Wescam footage

From Total Information Analysis: 9/11 Wescam (aka WeScam) footage via Fox News Channel (which is a propaganda arm of the Defense Department and CIA). Check it out. I'm sure I have this on the videotape I popped into my VCR that morning and let tape all day until it ran out. I have not gone back to watch it. Maybe I should.

Bohemian Grove logo sticker spotted in OKC's Bricktown

Recognize this wise old winged beasty? Sho'nuff, it's that creepy owl logo from Bohemian Grove in northern California. It was in the form of a sticker on a power box or somesuch on a wall along East Sheridan in the Bricktown district of Oklahoma City. It's either something a punk skater put there, like those Andre the Giant "OBEY" stickers or it's something far more sinister. Just minutes earlier I snapped a pic of another of these owl stickers stuck on an ATM a couple o' blocks over on Oklahoma Avenue. Are the Boho Grovers trying to tell us they are watching us? Of course real hard news is a rare commodity in OKC. Like what really went down on April 19, 1995?

BushCo minion wants more 'Big Brother' tyranny

Department of Fatherland Tyranny Michael "Skeletor" Chertoff is up to his old tricks again, this time telling the public that our freedom-loving government wants more centralized power following the phony baloney event in England last week.

Notes the AP: Chertoff made clear his belief that wider authority could thwart future attacks at a time when Congress is reviewing the proper scope of the Bush administration's executive powers for its warrantless eavesdropping program and military tribunals for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
"What helped the British in this case is the ability to be nimble, to be fast, to be flexible, to operate based on fast-moving information," he said. "We have to make sure our legal system allows us to do that. It's not like the 20th century, where you had time to get warrants."

Raise your hand if you don't believe Skeletor and his villainous henchmen want to take more and more of our freedom away.

Aloha State Red Alert!

URGENT!!! Please read the latest post over at Total Information Analysis, that says a mock terror drill in Hawaii could go live. Of course TIA was the news blog (with a little support from lil' ol' Spelunking Through the Chaos) that last year warned online readers and folks in Charleston, South Carolina about a similar Sudden Response nuke drill. Please read it and note the contact information.

The Existentialist 'Cowboy'

Our phony cowboy president, who is afraid of horses, is noted today on the AP wire as spending part of his vacation at the Crawford dude ranch reading the existentialist French novel "The Stranger" by Albert Camus. Wow! I think this choice says a lot about Bush himself. Methinks our misanthropic president secretly identifies with the shallow, amoral Meursault - killing Arabs and all. Creepy!

Ironically, I just saw "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," and in one racing scene, Ricky's nemesis, the loathesome Frenchman Jean Girard, is reading the French language version of "The Stranger." How odd!

(p.s. apologies to Len over at The Existentialist Cowboy blog)

Baby born at abortion mill killed

Yet another abortion mill horror story, this time out of Florida.

'Saturday Night Live' actor aware of 9/11 truth

Saw this over at 9/11 Blogger today ... a man at Lollapalooza in Chicago ran into "Saturday Night Live" actor Horatio Sanz and offered him some truth DVDs.

Writes contributor Gary Franchi Jr.: “You look familiar what is your name?” I asked. “Horatio” he replied. “Would you like a free DVD about the truth of 9/11, the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center?” I questioned.“Oh, you mean Loose Change?’ he replied.“Yeah, that is on the disk too, along with Evidence to the Contrary and Painful Deceptions, it’s the last one.”
“Sure, I’ll take it.” He said, as I placed the DVD in his hand.“Horatio, could I get a picture?” I turned on the camera, stretched out my arm, and snapped a picture with the last of my battery. Then he thanked me, and walked away led by his staff.
I knew there was a reason why I always liked Horatio Sanz.

Martial law around the corner

This morning, when I heard about the thwarted "terror attacks" centered on airlines out of the UK, I shuddered because I had this weird vision yesterday of planes blowing up in mid-air. This wasn't a dream. It frightens me because someone close to me is leaving for England today. What's also weird is that I've had a very strong feeling that stocking up on food and water would be wise at this time.

And then there's this ...

Alex Jones just warned the audience that there is a 90 percent chance of World War III and martial law in the next two months. This following today's thwarted "terror attacks." Jones, who I've trusted for years and warned listeners that attacks were coming two months prior to 9/11.

Said Jones just now: "We are entering the darkest waters the Western world has ever seen."

He added that he predicts "bone-shattering" attacks just around the corner, in either the U.S., Canada or England.

This is looking grim, particularly in light of heightened tensions in the Middle East.

Please pray for our country.
