As is reported at the Northeast Intelligence Network and Patriot Brigade Talk Radio sites this incident is very suspicious and the fact that New Jersey/New York media isn't even bothering to report on this is highly unusual, particularly if streets were closed and in light of last week's dirty bomb scare in New York.
And of course we're still waiting to hear about the identity of the driver in the alleged "fender bender."

Well, lucky for me, I had been in Starbucks earlier in the afternoon and had a copy of the Times in the seat next to me, still unread.
Sure enough, it was on a topic I was quite familiar with - the continuing cover-up of the J.F.K. assassination.
Written in letter form to Donald Graham of the Washington Post, activist Paul Kuntzler of the Miller Reporting Co. explains how President Kennedy was killed by:
"Vice President London (sic) Baines Johnson in a widespread , incredibly complex and brilliantly planned conspiracy that involved the Federal Bureau of Investigations directed by J. Edgar Hoover, the CIA directed by David Atlee Phillips, the Secret Service, elements of the United States Air Force, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the United States Army, the United States Navy, Henry R. Luce's LIFE magazine, the Ford Motor Company, the Dallas Police, including Dallas Mayor Earle Cabel, big Oil of Midland, Texas, the Texas political establishment , the mafia, the anti-Castro Cubans, Southern racists, inlcuding retired General Edwin Walker, and others. President Richard M. Nixon was also involved."
Pretty complex, eh? Well, it's a very interesting read if you get a chance to pick up a copy of today's Times.

So, if we're to believe this, then we should expect the cornered rats in this administration and in the New World Order to orchestrate a terror attack, which, according to Aviv, will not only hit big cities but smaller and even rural areas of the country.
Where is Aviv getting his intelligence?

I asked a question about Osama Bin Laden. If he is on a kidney dialysis machine, how is he getting around? What is his health?
Ultimately, the fed told me that it "was beyond what I could comment on."
Afterward, me and another man asked him specific questions. The man in front of me expressed concern about AIPAC and the Israel Lobby and foreign spying. The fed said that it is generally accepted that allies spy on one another. Say what?!?!
As for my question about the security camera tapes seized by the FBI after the strike on the Pentagon on 9/11 ... no luck. He was escorted away before he could answer.

According to a story by Tracy Neal of the Benton County Daily Record ...
“ 9-11 was an inside job” was scrawled in silver spray paint on the front window and bricks of the main courthouse at 102 N. E. A St. The same message was written on the front wall of the Courthouse Annex at 201 N. E. Second St.
On the east wall of the Courthouse Annex, more messages were left: “ Google = terror storm, ” “ www. infowars. com” and “Bush knew 9-11 was an inside job. ”
Similar statements were written on two vehicles — a Dodge Durango and a Chevy Colorado pickup truck — according to Bentonville Police Chief James Allen.
Statements were also painted on bathroom doors in Dave Peel Park, according to Benton County Judge Gary Black.
While vandalism is a bad idea (prison sucks, y'all!), I can't help but sense the frustration of these folks. They are part of a growing group of Americans who have had it with this arrogant government that was involved in 9/11 and other crimes.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert visited Washington yesterday and met with US President George W. Bush to finalise plans for a joint US-Israel strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.
President Bush hinted that actions against Iran will form the core of their discussion.
"I'm sure that we will find some time, also, to discuss other measures, such as the danger of Iran and the threats that come from the President of Iran, who talks time and again about the liquidation of the state of Israel, something that is totally intolerable and unacceptable," he said. "And we have to continue the measures taken in order to stop the Iranian efforts to establish unconventional weapons."
When did the "President of Iran" talk about the "liquidation of the state of Israel"? I've heard the translation was that Ahmadinejad had called for regime change in the Israeli government. Just read this article by Justin Raimondo and see how serious things are getting when it comes to the War Party.

Writes Des Moines Register reporter Thomas Beaumont: "To plan an event of this scope, we invited credible Democratic and credible Republican candidates alike," Failor said. "We had to draw the line somewhere."
Failor said candidates who were invited had to have demonstrated evidence of an Iowa campaign and have visible signs of support, through surveys of caucusgoers. Democrats were also invited, too, but none accepted, he said.
That did not sit well with Paul's supporters, many of whom follow closely on the Internet the outspoken critic of the war in Iraq and vocal proponent of federal spending and tax restraint.
Among the several e-mail objections sent to The Des Moines Register, some referred to the decision as "tragic," "fascist," and even "evil.""Shame on the bureaucrats who made this one happen," one Paul supporter wrote. "I hope they become aware of how evil they are."
Failor said he had received more than 60 angry telephone calls at home, a practice the Paul campaign said they did not endorse.
Make sure you support the Ron Paul campaign. Check out the link at the right.

I've tried getting it across to our local talk show knuckleheads Lee Matthews and Gerry Vaillancourt and both simply blow it off as if Ron Paul is a nobody. Yet they will embrace a cross-dressing gangster like Rudy Giuliani. WTF???

Well, as you may or may not know, Tenet's friend and mentor has long been David Boren, the former U.S. Senator from the great state of Oklahoma and the current president of the University of Oklahoma.
Well, I was Googling these two and found a link to a piece compiled by Norman-based researcher Michael P. Wright titled "George Tenet's Failure is the Legacy of David Boren."
It gives the casual reader some additional perspective on the subject and a clear link to a prominent figure in Oklahoma - David Boren.

This is effin' serious folks. Bees are dying, disappearing, washing up in clusters on our nation's beaches. Just what the hell is going on here?
Notes the AP, rather matter-o-factly: In fact, about one-third of the human diet comes from insect-pollinated plants, and the honeybee is responsible for 80 percent of that pollination, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Even cattle, which feed on alfalfa, depend on bees. So if the collapse worsens, we could end up being ‘‘stuck with grains and water,’’ said Kevin Hackett, the national program leader for USDA’s bee and pollination program.
This could have an absolutely devastating effect on the country. Are agri-giants behind this? The military-industrial complex? Someone knows what is killing these bees and they know that this will ultimately work its way up the food chain and end up killing human beings! I know here in Oklahoma, in the Altus area, there are plans to introduce GM alfalfa. This will probably make things worse.
In any event, this is so serious and yet I don't sense it's getting the widespread play it deserves.
For more on this subject, please read this column about bees and Colony Collapse Disorder headlined "Please Lord, Not the Bees."

In light of the fact that witnesses said bomber Joel Henry Hinrichs III was trying to get in the stadium that day, this is totally outrageous, particularly in light of the mass shooting at Virginia Tech a week-and-a-half ago.
Anyway, the story, written by crime/terrorism beat "repeater" Nolan Clay, who has covered up for the FBI and former Gov. Frank Keating regarding the Alfred P. Murrah federal building bombing, is interesting.
What is OU President David Boren (Skull & Bones, CFR, CIA insider, etc., etc.) up to?
Here it is:
NORMAN -- The University of Oklahoma has put outside the student union a patio stone engraved with the name of the student suicide bomber."I was just kind of horrified,” said OU football fan Jenny Clemons, who spotted the stone after OU's Red-White game April 7.
"I don't think he has any business being out here.”
OU's student affairs division arranged to have the stone placed, an OU alumni affairs employee said. OU officials say families pay for such memorials but the student's father said OU offered to place the stone and never billed him.
A stone costs $150.
Joel "Joe” Henry Hinrichs III, an engineering student, died Oct. 1, 2005, when his bomb went off at a campus bench a short distance from an OU night football game.
The FBI investigated whether the student, 21, tried or intended to enter the packed stadium but reported finding no conclusive evidence.
The student's father traveled from Colorado to Oklahoma to visit with university officials after the death. Joel Hinrichs Jr. said OU's dean of students, Clarke Stroud, offered to have the stone placed.In an e-mail, the father told The Oklahoman the dean "very kindly understood that Joel's act was one of loneliness, not of aggression, and offered to have the stone placed in the memorial courtyard; he also indicated that the wife of the university president might select a tree to be placed on campus, also in Joel III's memory.”
The father said he asked to pay for the stone and tree "but was never told anything.” He repeated his offer to the dean in an e-mail Monday after being contacted by The Oklahoman. He said, "They never sent me any indication of cost, or even that they had moved forward.”
In a statement, OU President David Boren said, "As is well known, the death of Joel Hinrichs III was an apparent suicide. A tree was not planted on the campus. Instead, the university gives the opportunity for those who desire to purchase pavers in the union courtyard for students, graduates, or friends of the university."Some are given to honor graduates or friends of the university and some are given as memorials. They are paid for by those who have them placed there and the proceeds go towards the upkeep of the student union. The university tries to be sensitive to all the families who have lost sons or daughters while they were students.”
Stroud said in an e-mail: "We invite all parents or members of the university family to purchase stones in the courtyard honoring friends or family members. In this case it is certainly appropriate to allow Mr. Hinrichs to honor the memory of his son who tragically died while he was a student at the university.”
The father said his son was only committing suicide. FBI agents said they do not know if the student intentionally set off the bomb on the bench as a suicide or if he also had intended to kill others elsewhere. A Norman police bomb expert has said he believes the bomb went off accidentally and that the student had further plans.
Clemons, 50, a hospital nurse, said, "I was in the stadium the day that guy blew himself up. ... I feel like ... if he'd been successful he would have killed a whole bunch of us at the football game.”
Read the rest here.
Why was the university so eager to feature Hinrichs and give him a memorial stone and not have the family pay for it. Hinrichs clearly wanted to take out people at that stadium. And if the comments at NewsOK.com are any indication, people are outraged about the placement of this stone and will demand it be removed, pronto!

By Roger G. Charles and J.D. Cash
McCurtain (Okla.) Daily Gazette (www.mccurtain.com)
IDABEL, Okla. -- A retired, senior officer of the nation’s intelligence community has confirmed to this newspaper that the German military-intelligence operative, Andreas Strassmeir, was in fact “working for the German government and the FBI” while residing at the neo-Nazi compound known as Elohim City. Strassmeir resided at this compound for four years and closely associated with members of the neo-Nazi group that planned and conducted the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in downtown Oklahoma City.
This intelligence officer identified a specific document, a post-bombing report, that listed Strassmeir’s role as an agent reporting on neo-Nazi activities as part of a campaign being waged by both German and American governments against such activities. (This newspaper is involved in legal efforts to obtain a copy of this report.)
Twelve years after the April 19 bombing in America’s heartland, this and other recently obtained and compelling evidence confirms what had long been suspected – the bombing was the result of a bungled “sting” operation that sought to disrupt international ties between German and American neo-Nazis. It was a sting operation that went bad, horribly bad.
Strassmeir’s role as a possible German military-intelligence operative in the center of neo-Nazi group responsible for this deadly attack had long puzzled Danny Coulson, one of the three most-senior FBI supervisors in charge of the immediate post-bombing investigation.
In a documentary television program aired by the British Broadcasting Corporation on March 4 of this year, Coulson described how unusual it was, based on his own 31 years in the FBI, that Strassmeir was never interviewed by the FBI before he was allowed to return to Germany in January 1996.
“To my knowledge, he was never interviewed by any FBI agents. He was interviewed [in a trans-Atlantic telephone call] by two Assistant United States Attorneys with an FBI [agent] present on the phone but taking notes. But there was never a face-to- face, sit-down, come-to-Jesus meeting with the FBI. That never occurred.”
In the same BBC program, Strassmeir repeated his oft-repeated denial of any knowledge of or role in the bombing plot.
Coulson was not impressed with Strassmeir’s responses.
“Yeah, well a person can claim a lot of things. But, you are known by the company you keep... if you are hanging out with some Aryans [neo-Nazis] and the Aryans are involved in criminal activity, it’s kind of hard to say you know nothing about it. It’s like hanging out with the choir [and you] didn’t know they sang. It’s exactly the same type of thing. He knew what they were up to. He knew what he was doing there. And we should have interviewed him.”
In November 2003, this newspaper obtained a Jan. 4, 1996, teletype from then-Director of the FBI Louis Freeh that contained information about a telephone call from Tim McVeigh to Strassmeir at Elohim City. While federal prosecutors had admitted that McVeigh called Elohim City on April 5, 1995, asking to speak with Strassmeir, the evidence of this second phone call on April 17 was withheld from McVeigh’s federal trial and from both federal and state trials of Terry Nichols, McVeigh’s co-defendant.
This document contains these two other key facts.
One, this source reported to the FBI that McVeigh had a “lengthy relationship” with Strassmeir. Not only was this document withheld from the defense teams, but the federal prosecutors claimed repeatedly that the largest FBI investigation in the nation’s history up to this time had discovered that McVeigh’s and Strassmeir’s direct contacts consisted only of a short encounter at a Tulsa gun show two years before the bombing. (McVeigh’s phone call of April 4 had been for Strassmeir, who had not been present to take the call.)
And, two, this source reported that Strassmeir was (as of Jan. 4, 1996) residing in North Carolina and had plans to “leave the U.S. via Mexico, in the near future.” The source specified where Strassmeir was staying, and with whom.
No action was taken by the FBI to intercept Strassmeir, who walked across the Texas border into Mexico on or about Jan. 10 in route to his home in Germany.
The above revelations were discovered in November 2003 when this newspaper found a copy of the explosive teletype among more than 300,000 pages of FBI records that were supposedly not directly related to the Oklahoma City bombing, known inside the FBI as “OKBOMB.” Yet, the Oklahoma City bombing case number is clearly shown as being the case under which the teletype was drafted, transmitted and filed.
From this same 300,000 pages is a never-before-disclosed FBI teletype dated December 6, 1995, from the FBI office in St. Louis to the Director and 11 other FBI offices. It contains conclusive proof that the FBI actively investigated connections between the neo-Nazi gang of bank robbers and the Oklahoma City bomb team. (Three of the bank robbers lived with Strassmeir at Elohim City at various times.)
This teletype announced a meeting to be hosted by the St. Louis FBI office on Jan. 9 and 10, 1996, for the purpose of exchanging information about the neo-Nazi bank robbers (know in FBI shorthand as the “BOMBROB” major case).
It further stated that, “... this investigation has been featured on the Oct. 28, 1995 segment of America’s Most Wanted (AMW), which resulted in a possible connection between BOMBROB and OKBOMB.”
The teletype lists nine items to be covered in the Jan. 9-10 meeting. Two of the agenda items are particularly relevant.
“6)Presentation from OKBOMB investigator on status of possible connection with BOMBROB.
“7) Explanation of specifics of possible military connection.”
Following the late-December 1995 interviews of a neo-Nazi leader (who was serving as a sergeant in the U.S. Army at Fort Benning, Georgia) and his wife, the FBI used this sergeant to lure the leaders of the BOMBROB gang to meetings in the Cincinnati, Ohio area where they were arrested. (Richard Lee Guthrie on January 15, and Peter Langan on January 18, 1996.)
An FBI teletype dated Jan. 3, 1996 announced that, “In view of recent developments in the Cincinnati Division [of the FBI]...,” the planned meeting of members of the BOMBROB and OBKBOMB investigation teams in St. Louis on January 9 and 10 was “postponed indefinitely.”
The Army sergeant and his wife received an undisclosed award for their roles in supporting the FBI’s arrests of the BOMBROB leaders in Ohio.
And, whether it was coincidence or not, Strassmeir – “Andy the German” to his neo-Nazi associates – left the United States on January 10.
Recent documents and other information obtained by this newspaper have also confirmed long-held suspicions about Strassmeir’s immigration records, a few of which were released for the federal trials of McVeigh and Nichols.
Specifically, in Strassmeir’s visits to the United States, dating back to 1988, his immigration records listed him with a coded designation that meant he traveled in a special diplomatic status which carried with it diplomatic immunity.
When retired senior FBI official Coulson was asked in the BBC documentary about his continuing suspicions regarding Strassmeir, Coulson replied:
“There is (sic) lots of questions who he is. Who he works for? And does he work for... for someone in the United States? Does he work for the federal government, or does he work for a government overseas? Did he work for the Israelis? The Israelis certainly have an interest in looking at neo-Nazis because of their history. The Germans have a significant problem with neo-Nazis in their country and they were not happy with our investigation here. And, was he working for them? I don’t know the answer to it. What I do know is he wasn’t just bumming around.”
Twelve years after the worst incident of domestic terrorism in the nation’s history, hard evidence continues to surface that directly contradicts the federal government’s claim that all those who perpetrated that horrible crime have been caught, convicted and sentenced.
Strassmeir, for one, is safe from having to answer official questions about his role in OKBOMB. The German government does not extradite German citizens to countries where they could potentially face the death penalty for their criminal conduct.
The Vermont legislature (and Lee Iacocca) wants to see Bush impeached!
And this coming Saturday, there will be rallies across the country calling for the impeachment of this evil duo.

Writes this nattering ninny: Despite a decade-long string of such political victories, the National Rife Association still revels in the apocalyptic imagery of liberal jackboots trampling on the constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of gun-loving patriots. After the Democrats took control of Congress last November, the NRA issued a brochure that began ominously, "Second Amendment freedom today stands naked in the path of a marching axis of adversaries far darker and more dangerous than gun owners have ever known."
Well, as a member of the NRA, we know it's true that Democrats are more likely to impose gun-control laws than Republicans. However, under the Bush administration, gun rights have been more imperiled than they were under the Clinton regime.
As for "jackboots," Shapiro must be living on a different planet. There is a very serious possibility that doors will be kicked in by storm troopers directed under a Giuliani or Hillary Clinton administration. Make no mistake neocons, Giuliani and Clinton want your guns. As the Infowars T-shirt says: "Politicians love disarmed peasants." The Second Amendment is in serious danger and Shapiro will be wishing he had some protection when he's mugged or attacked by some street thug.
Of course he could always move to Britain or Australia and cower in fear like our Western allies. Pathetic!
In it, we see a monstrous, Blob-like Rosie O’Donnell taking a bite our of World Trade Center building 7, while in a neighboring building (someone) says,
“So that’s what happened to Building 7, it was eaten by the Blob.”
While I’ve never been a fan of Ms. O’Donnell or her political stances in recent years, I believe she has every right to publicly question why the 47-story skyscraper in the World Trade Center complex was inexplicably reduced to rubble late in the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001.
Without question, people in city, state and federal government there in New York and members of the media-military industrial complex had foreknowledge of WTC 7’s imminent implosion.
Video taken near the site clearly shows firemen and policemen telling people to get back because WTC 7 was coming down.
Shockingly, the BBC and other news networks made premature announcements that the building had come down, yet there it is in the background, still standing.
Was the BBC reporter psychic? I think not.
Remember, Building 7 was never struck by a jet and the small fires noted in Building 7 that day were not the sort of white-hot infernos which would be required to melt steel.
Yet, the building — housing some pretty spooky stuff and info I might add — came straight down into its own footprint.
Amazingly, the 9/11 Commission didn’t even bother to note the destruction of this building in their “exhaustive” report to the American people.
And yet, for the past month, Rosie O’Donnell has been getting pummelled by neocon radio and TV bullies simply because she dared inquire into this event.
.What’s funny is a few years back I remember the ECP looking into the events leading up to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building here in Oklahoma City, just a few blocks from where I sit. And the ECP did not pursue the government’s version of events. No, they followed their gut and their gut told them something wasn’t quite right about that tragic and deadly attack on April 19, 1995.
These days I find myself coming to the defense of Ms. O’Donnell. Why? Because I can see she is concerned about the dangerous direction our country is going under the maniacal Bush/Cheney regime and the fact that the media often lets this cabal go unchalleneged, particularly when it comes to serious, substantive issues like 9/11 and the so-called “War on Terror.”
Meanwhile, I’m still waiting to hear from our elected leaders what caused Building 7 to collapse into itself on that horrible day nearly six years ago.
I ain’t holding my breath.
Arriving in a Suburban with a couple of guys in dark sunglasses, this smirking shill for the New World Order crawled out, shook some hands and walked down to the small podium set up next to the touring piano John Lennon used to compose his 1971 hit "Imagine."
After some words from the head of the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum and Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Jari Askins, Giuliani (who fidgeted and looked distracted) took to the lectern and talked about how his city and our city shared much in common; good people and first responders who quickly responded to one another's terror attacks.
He then spoke of this week's Virginia Tech tragedy, pledging to do more to "make our schools safer" (sounds like a speech for his candidacy for president) and then proceeded to talk about "strength," "resolve," and how "free people have strength."
"We will do everything we can to prevent further attacks," Giuliani said. "Freedom from violence is our first civil right."
The Rudester closed by saying, "We will win the war on terror at home and abroad."
They then read the names of the 168 victims of the bombing.
I was able to get some pictures of Rudy talking to people and taking pictures. When the media (myself included) approached him and an Oklahoman reporter began peppering him with questions, included a pointed question about his position on gun control in light of the VT shootings, Giuliani got all serious and said, "I'm not here for political questions."
Yeah, sure. His whole reason for being in our city was for political reasons. It was disgusting.

Bowman, who has run both for president and for a congressional seat out of Florida, made a stop at Mayflower Congregational Church, as part of his 100-city "Patriots" tour where he shares his thoughts about everything from this corrupt cabal in the Bush administration to issues related to 9/11 truth and how he believes it was an inside job.
The crowd, mostly middle-age or older, sat in the church sanctuary and listened to peace activist Nathaniel Batchelder with Oklahoma City's Peace House introduce his old friend Dr. Bowman. It would become clear that Bowman was interested in bringing both left and right together and convincing folks that we're all in this together, in a fight against greedy globalists and war profiteers.
"What I'm trying to do with the Patriots tour is to bring people in our country together to where we recognize our common need to take back our country for the people," Bowman said, adding that the increasingly common thread among people of all political stripes is that they "love their country but fear their government."Added Bowman, "It's time to come together and take back our government."
Bowman, who directed the Department of Defense's 'Star Wars' programs under the Ford and Carter administrations and was a Democrat candidate for U.S. Congress in Florida's 15th district in 2006, said there is really little difference between the two major parties and that's what the elites - the "Corporate New World Order" - want.
Bowman then told the audience that he had drafted an inaugural "State of the Union" speech that he would give to the American people were he to be elected president someday. I have to say that he made some powerful, hard-hitting statements.
"Benjamin Franklin's worst fears came true," Bowman said in his speech. "We've lost our Republic."
Bowman hit the 9/11 inside job issue pretty hard, saying that there is "evidence of a massive cover-up of 9/11."
Interestingly, he said he spoke with 9/11 Commissioners Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean and they told him that information they wanted in the final report was whitewashed or simply left out of the report.
"If the Bush administration had nothing to hide," Bowman thundered, "Why did they hide everything?"
He poked holes in the perposterous 9/11 conspiracy theory peddled by this corrupt government, saying that 19 hijackers with box cutters could not have pulled off the attacks. And if they did, how did they know real-life drills dealing with the exact same scenario were going on that day?
He told the audience that a number of the "hijackers" were trained by our own government and may have simply been "patsies" and "dupes" that were taking part in an anti-terrorism event that they were caught up in unawares.
Someone in the audience scoffed, saying "That's pretty far out," when Bowman suggested the planes may have been operated under remote control.
"The American people have not been told about who is responsible for 9/11," he said, noting, "Who were the guilty parties? The Saudis? The Pakistanis? The Israelis? Americans?"
Bowman included text from speeches he gave prior to our illegal invasion of Iraq in March 2003. He railed against the administration and the war, and as a veteran himself, told the audience that many thousands of troops will come home suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and poisoned by exposure to depleted uranium. He added that many children born to soldiers exposed to DU will sadly be afflicted with "severe birth defects."
He then talked about how after the end of the Cold War, the first Bush administration needed a "boogeyman" to justify ballooning defense budgets and chose Saddam Hussein, even though he had been an asset of our government for decades.
"Saddam was always a bad guy," Bowman said, "But he was always our bad guy."
And now, he said, more terrorists are being created as this disastrous war churns onward. People with no hope turn to terrorism out of desperation, he said.
Speaking to the largely left base in the audience, he said that under his administration, the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia would be closed and end the embargo on Cuba.
He then wrapped up his speech saying that the turnout in Oklahoma City was the best he'd seen so far, better than even Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
During the question and answer period, Bowman told the crowd that effective ways to get your voice heard was to write short letters to Congress, making your one, single point. Peace demonstrations are effective, as is running for office, which gives one a "soapbox."
When an audience member admitted to being "behind the curve" regarding 9/11 truth and asked how to find out more, Bowman told him to check out informative 9/11 truth sites like Alex Jones' Infowars.com and 911Truth.org.
Interestingly, Bowman, who said he had supported John Kerry for president in 2004, noted Kerry's membership with Skull and Bones.
He said that he is also working alongside the John Birch Society, a group that used to heckle him years ago.
He noted that after an audience member asked how one could "expose the money trail related to the military-industrial complex." He said the Birchers have done a lot to expose that, finding out who belongs to the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg group.
Now, I didn't agree with everything he said. I'm not in favor of re-instating the so-called "Fairness Doctrine," which would silence certain voices in the media. As much as I'd love for Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck and O'Reilly to all retire, they do have a right to say what they want, no matter how un-American and/or odious.
Bowman also called for universal health care for all Americans, although he did not go into specifics as to how that would work.
Alas, he didn't get around to answering my question which had to do with the militarization of space and releasing documents related to UFOs.
Oh well, maybe I'll catch him again some other time.If he comes to your town, I urge you to go out and hear him.

As noted in today's top story at PrisonPlanet.com, writer/researcher Paul Joseph Watson has a story headlined "Neo-Cons to Spin Va. Massacre as Terrorist Attack."
Now, I didn't make the connection at the time but I did find it curious that news reports coming out said that when killer Cho Seung-Hui's body was recovered, police found the words "Ismail Ax" scrawled on his arm.
"Ismail Ax"? Yes, it had a distinctly "Muslim" ring to it. But I didn't make much of it. Now that I've read Another Day in the Empire's Kurt Nimmo, I understand that:
"'Ismail Ax' is a well known phrase in the Muslim world. The Muslims believe that the [Old Testament] is wrong in saying that Abraham was supposed to kill Isaac with a knife, rather they believe he was supposed to kill Ishmael (Ismail) with an Axe.
They also believe that Abraham was supposed to go out and attack idols with an axe, and some also attribute the phrase to meaning that Ishmael was supposed to kill Isaac, the father of all Western culture, with an axe…
Cho was a South Korean immigrant to the US, but it seems undeniable that his killing spree, at least in part, was motivated by some sort of belief in Islam.”
That may be the case. But we don't know much about his history. Was he frequenting militant Islamist sites? Was there a mosque in Blacksburg or Roanoke that he attended? We do know he would go to Roanoke from time-to-time and that is where he purchased his $571 Glock 19 and ammo, according to the Virginian-Pilot newspaper. Was Cho visiting a psychiatrist? Was this person connected to the military?
Well, as I mentioned here yesterday, we can only look to the strange case of Colorado man Joel Henry Hinrichs III, a 21-year-old engineering student, attending the University of Oklahoma in Norman, who could be almost a carbon-copy of Cho Seung-Hui. Both were depressed, unbalanced loners on medication.
Except where Hinrichs strapped himself with explosives in hopes of being a suicide bomber (a choice of destruction more common in the Middle East and Asia ... hmmm?) in the midst of a crowded Gaylord Family/Oklahoma Memorial football stadium, fortunately failing in his murderous attempt, blowing himself up instead, Cho opted to be a killer with a gun, killing 33 and injuring dozens.
Within a week, reports were coming out that Hinrichs had visited Ellison Feed and Seed on Porter Avenue in Norman and had tried to purchase ammonium nitrate fertilizer, as noted in this AP story. Oh, and reports were saying at the time Hinrichs frequented a local mosque. This was never confirmed from follow-up reports I've read.
And while OU President David Boren, a secretive man with well-known ties to the CIA, a former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Yale's Skull and Bones secret society, spun the story and said Hinrichs was merely a depressed, lonely kid who wanted to commit suicide.
Yet, months later, in a story that didn't receive much attention, a bomb expert with the Norman Police Department says in an AP story: "I believe he accidentally blew himself up."
This means that Boren, as we investigative bloggers (scolded by the Wall Street Journal at the time) noted at the time, was covering and spinning this event like crazy. This from a man whose university was a popular spot for CIA assets Nicholas Berg and Zacarias Moussaoui.
And investigators were successful in getting reports regarding the findings in Hinrichs' off-campus apartment sealed.
As investigator Michael P. Wright notes, "This raises questions. Boren wants us to believe that no terrorist conspiracy existed and that the death was just an 'individual suicide' by an 'emotionally troubled' student.
If there were no other suspects, then certainly no harm would come to a prosecution effort by describing all the evidence found in the Hinrichs investigation, for the purpose of informing the public about the true nature of the event. We deserve all the evidence available in order to assess our own risk level for terrorism. Football fans deserve to know this in the process of deciding whether to attend games. There can only be two reasons for keeping a lid on the evidence, at this time:
1. there are other suspects, and disclosing it at this time might interfere with prosecution strategies, or
2. Hinrichs, acting alone, did have terrorist intentions, but the courts and FBI are helping their friend Boren in covering this up.
And Paul Joseph Watson, it should be noted, is right in being concerned that neo-con ideologues will try to paint Cho as a Muslim extremist wanting to kill Christians and "rich kids," due to the cryptic "Ismail Ax" message on Cho's arm. This may have been written on his body after his death. These are the feds, after all.
It's too early to tell what Cho's real motivation was or if he was under the sway of a secret nest of government operatives. It is curious that in the midst of this horrible tragedy at Virginia Tech, some BIG things are going on on the national and international scene from the now-delayed testimony of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, tensions in Iran and Russia and dying bees.
Before signing off, I thought this might be of some interest to those interested in the Hinrichs case.
According to a fall 2006 report from Colorado Springs TV station KTTV and noted at Bellaciao by Norman-based researcher Michael P. Wright : Authorities say 25-year-old Thomas Hinrichs had an assault rifle, two boxes of ammunition, three ammunition magazines and a military helmet when he was arrested earlier this month.
He was allegedly angry with this country's government and school system for creating an environment that led to Joel's death."
Added KFOR TV here in Oklahoma City: Thomas Hinrichs was charged November 21st with threatening an FBI agent after he allegedly admitted he daydreamed of shooting the agent. The 25-year-old Hinrichs also is accused of assaulting his father.
His father also said his other son is insane. It's really rather sad. Still, unbalanced people can sometimes be used by black ops in order to achieve a desired outcome (in Hinrichs' case - heightened security measures at public stadiums and in Cho's case - gun control).

Seems strange. Just like the drills that were planned in advance that took place on 9/11/01 in the U.S. and on 7/7/05 in Britain.
As someone close to me said today, "What is it about these tragedies happening in April?
Who was this man? Why did he go on a killing spree at Virginia Tech? How did this Korean national manage to get a firearm? Was there a second shooter? Why didn't the campus and Blacksburg police react more quickly?
There are simply so many questions about this horrific, and dare I say it, terrorist attack? I mean I would suspect the Department of Homeland Security would label Cho a terrorist. Clearly this was pre-meditated and was meant to go beyond the allegations that he killed his girlfriend (?) and another man. There are so many things about this incident that need answers.
I just hope this doesn't lead to posturing by anti-gunners wanting to take away our gun rights. I mean, isn't that what usually happens after these sort of incidents?
And, I'm speculating here folks, Virginia Tech is not so far from spook central near Washington DC. Was he a Manchurian candidate, under some sort of mind control? I want to know more about what he was studying, who he was hanging out with
Just 25 miles south of here, on Oct. 1, 2005, Joel Henry Hinrichs III blew himself up outside a crowded stadium at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, something I reported on here at Spelunking. OU President David Boren downplayed any terrorist connections, even though explosive material was found in his apartment, had been visiting a local mosque and he was acting strangely prior to the explosion. He also reportedly tried to get in the stadium, where tens of thousands of football fans were watching OU play Kansas State. Even though a ticket-taker turned Hinrichs away for not having a ticket, it was clear to the man that Hinrichs was trying to gain entry into the stadium. That fact was played down and/or ignored by the local media, something reported on by Norman-based writer/researcher Michael P. Wright.
So, it will be interesting to see if the administration at Virginia Tech will try to play down and spin this tragedy, much like OU and the Oklahoma media did following the Hinrichs suicide bombing.

Right now, Alex Jones is talking to a 9/11 truther there at VT's campus and he is telling radio listeners that this may be either a black government op or a "mental patient." It's still not clear. Although most of us who follow the alternative media know that there have been many mass shootings and assassinations that have involved people involved in some sort of mind-control program. I don't think the truth about the 1999 Columbine High School massacre has fully come out.
And it was nearly 11 years ago that Martin Bryant went on a shooting spree in the Australian town of Port Arthur, Tasmania killing 35 people and wounding 37. Numerous alternative theories have come out about the Port Arthur killings and that Bryant was acting strangely in the months leading up to the killings.
And we know where the Australian government stands when it comes to their countrymen being able to defend themselves.

One of the heroes Moore promised to take to Cuba was Michael McCormack, a 48-year-old disabled medic who has a chronic respiratory illness. Yet, for some strange reason, McCormack was not contacted and was not included on the trip to Cuba, something he found out about last month.
Said McCormack in the Post interview about being left behind: "It's the ultimate betrayal," he said. "You're promised that you're going to be taken care of and then you find out you're not. He's trying to profiteer off of our suffering."
McCormack, I should note, is the guy who found the American flag in the rubble of the Twin Towers and was used as a sign of unity at that time.
What's interesting is that McCormack has been the center of some recent controversy, as noted by PrisonPlanet.com writer and researcher Paul Joseph Watson in a Sept. 15, 2006 article headlined; "9/11 Toxic Dust Whistleblower Raided by SWAT Team."
Writes Watson: "McCormack is part of an organization lobbying Congress to demand a response from the federal government to the toxic dust cover-up and just compensation for the heroes of 9/11 who were deserted by their own government while the Bush administration had the audacity to use the attacks to fulfil a pre-determined political agenda by exploiting the unity created by the events of that day."
McCormack also says in the PrisonPlanet piece, which follows a radio interview he did with host Alex Jones, that he knows many people dying from WTC dust and that he has heard numerous stories from firefighters that bombs were heard going off in the WTC that day.
Writes Watson: "McCormack said the government had 'abandoned' the heroes of 9/11 and that 'when Alex tells you this is Nazi Germany, you best believe it,' describing the events as 'part of the new world order.'
Interestingly, Watson writes that McCormack is now in "a high position of employment in security with the federal government which at the moment he prefers not to divulge."
So, what are we to make of this? I don't know. Is Moore and his crew afraid of a wild card like Michael McCormack? We already know in Jones' "Martial Law" film that when Moore was confronted about his lack of serious inquiry into 9/11 in "Fahrenheit 9/11" that pursuing real questions would be "Un-American," as Moore put it.

Here's a column called "Custodians of chaos," that he wrote over a year ago. Check out this line:
George W. Bush has gathered around him upper-crust C-students who know no history or geography, plus not-so-closeted white supremacists, aka Christians, and plus, most frighteningly, psychopathic personalities, or PPs, the medical term for smart, personable people who have no consciences.
And it's that "smart, personable" part that hoodwinks so many people. 'How could this good Christian man do the things you claim he does?' goes the sheeple.
Maybe because he and his minions prefer to gather at Bohemian Grove each summer to remind themselves that they have no "cares" in the world. That way they can try and destroy all who resist them. It's pure evil!
Here's one story on it.
What I'm curious about is whether Rice is actually hetero. A good source of mine in Washington said his friend has seen Condi with her partner on numerous times. That's why I'm so surprised to hear this. Who really knows.

And as someone who is interested in unexplained earthly phenomena and who witnessed ball lightning in their house in Kansas on Nov. 19, 1990, I found this Fortean Times article on "earth lights" particularly interesting.
Here's a story in the Saskatoon (Saskatchewan) StarPhoenix newspaper featuring an interview with the mayor of Maidstone, Saskatchewan talking about her town's reputation as a top UFO hotspot in Canada.
The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota has been the site of numerous "Bigfoot"-type activity and there have been sightings by tribal police as well. Check out this Cryptomundo article to find out more.
And finally, if you live in the Corpus Christi, Texas area, you may want to keep your pets - especially cats - inside your home. Something evil is lurking down there and is killing and mutilating innocent felines, according to a report from paranormal investigator Linda Moulton Howe. And I give the Corpus Christi Caller-Times props for reporting on this mystery as well.

I mean, this Mike Nifong guy is a total dirtball for dragging those kids through the gutter. It was a total sham, and given the alleged victim, Crystal Gail Mangum, prosecutors should've known off the bat to be cautious before bringing charges against the lacrosse-playing trio. As for Nifong, I hope officials in North Carolina disbar the halfwit. I don't think he fully appreciates the uproar he's caused in his community and beyond, particularly in regards to delicate race issues in the South just a generation or two past the days of segregation.
For more thoughts on this case and a shocking case in Tennessee that received next to no attention in the mainstream media, click here.
Hasselbeck told Beck how it was absurd to believe Rosie's suggestion that the government took down World Trade Center 7 and that even if it was an inside job, as Rosie suggests, it would've had to be implemented before the Bush administration came into power.
Naturally, Beck and "Stu" were salivating about how hot Hasselbeck is and that it is off-the-charts crazy to believe 9/11 was an inside job. Well, Hasselbeck, show me where the 9/11 truth movement is wrong. We don't want the empty opinions and defending of the government. Don't you want an independent investigation? Have you simply turned off your brain? Rosie O'Donnell, regardless of what you may think of her, is a patriot for using her position to openly question our corrupt government. Hasselbeck is an embarrassment.
So, I want you all to read this great column via Jesse at TVNewsLies.org called "To 9/11 'Conspiracy Debunkers': I'm Calling You Out, Either Show Up or Shut Up!"
And so, there really is only one way to go right now: the 9/11 discussion either has to end immediately or it has to go public full force! I am personally calling out the people who continue to cling to the official story! Bring your experts, bring the 9/11 Commission, bring your debunkers and openly debate me and the team I put together. If you hear us out and answer our questions honestly in a public and open forum, we’ll go away! If not, we want mainstream televised coverage of the research we have done.
And don't forget today, being the 11th, is a 9/11 Truth Action day. Spread 9/11 Truth wherever you can!!!

Read it while you still can.
A top Constitutional scholar from Princeton who gave a televised speech that slammed President George W. Bush's executive overreach recently learned that he had been added to the Transportation Security Administration's terrorist watch list. He shared his experience this weekend at the law blog Balkinization.
Basically, the guy, Princeton University Prof. Walter Murphy made some public comments about Lord Bush last year and when he tries to simply fly from Albuquerque to Newark he is basically told "tough sh*t" by some TSA halfwit.
Get a load of this exchange, noted at Balkinization:
"I presented my credentials from the Marine Corps to a very polite clerk for American Airlines. One of the two people to whom I talked asked a question and offered a frightening comment: "Have you been in any peace marches? We ban a lot of people from flying because of that."
I explained that I had not so marched but had, in September, 2006, given a lecture at Princeton, televised and put on the Web, highly critical of George Bush for his many violations of the Constitution. "That'll do it," the man said. "
"After carefully examining my credentials, the clerk asked if he could take them to TSA officials. I agreed. He returned about ten minutes later and said I could have a boarding pass, but added: "I must warn you, they're going to ransack your luggage."
On my return flight, I had no problem with obtaining a boarding pass, but my luggage was "lost." Airlines do lose a lot of luggage and this "loss" could have been a mere coincidence. In light of previous events, however, I'm a tad skeptical."
This is exactly why I loathe flying these days. Yes, I've marched for peace and I've criticized the Bush regime. And do you think things will be any better under cross-dressing gangsters like Rudy Giuliani or Shrill-ary Clinton?
Saturday, April 07, 2007
This is terribly troubling and hope Republicans and/or conservatives wake up to the fact that this man's gangster ties and cover up of who was behind the 9/11 terror attacks is enough to scratch him off the growing list of potential Republican presidential candidates.

"She's having her paradigm shifted," Jones said of O'Donnell.
They report how the toppling of Mossadegh led to extremist Islamists and the Shah and ultimately the 1979 American hostage crisis. It's as if our meddling was deliberate because we knew extremists would take hold and would give us an excuse to invade and install a puppet regime. Meanwhile, the average Iranian will suffer.
And in light of the current Brit soldier hostage crisis, it is becoming clear that Britain was in Iranian waters and a provocation of 'Gulf of Tonkin' proportions may be underway. I certainly hope not.

Reports Tarpley: The attack is slated to last for twelve hours, according to Uglanov, lasting from 4 AM until 4 PM local time. Friday is a holiday in Iran. In the course of the attack, code named Operation Bite, about 20 targets are marked for bombing; the list includes uranium enrichment facilities, research centers, and laboratories.
The first reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant, where Russian engineers are working, is supposed to be spared from destruction. The US attack plan reportedly calls for the Iranian air defense system to be degraded, for numerous Iranian warships to be sunk in the Persian Gulf, and the for the most important headquarters of the Iranian armed forces to be wiped out.
The attacks will be mounted from a number of bases, including the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. Diego Garcia is currently home to B-52 bombers equipped with standoff missiles. Also participating in the air strikes will be US naval aviation from aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, as well as from those of the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean.
Additional cruise missiles will be fired from submarines in the Indian Ocean and off the coast of the Arabian peninsula. The goal is allegedly to set back Iran's nuclear program by several years, writes Uglanov, whose article was re-issued by RIA-Novosti in various languages, but apparently not English, several days ago. The story is the top item on numerous Italian and German blogs, but so far appears to have been ignored by US websites.
But not here at Spelunking Through the Chaos!!!

The crime of the century is beginning to be exposed in a major way via Rosie O'Donnell, a year after Charlie Sheen went public. This is major news. In fact, I've got "The Alex Jones Show" on right now and O'Donnell is expected to make a public statement in New York in a matter of minutes. Let's see the controllers try to keep this under the rug.

Or just check out this snippet from the Independent story:
Statements from Mr Mugabe in recent days have revealed deep divisions in his own party and suggested the autocratic leader has an insecure grip on a country he has ruled for the last 27 years. Speaking in Harare on Saturday, Mr Mugabe accused the opposition of resorting to violence sponsored by the former colonial power, Britain and other Western allies.
"We have given too much room to mischief-makers and shameless stooges of the West. Let them and their masters know that we shall brook none of their lawless behaviour."
What a shame. Those poor people caught in the middle of that insanity. Where is the Hague and the UN when it comes to Madman Mugabe?

Here it is ...
This week along I-20 from Alabama to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas, north on Highway 75/69 from Dallas into Muskogee Oklahoma, I-40 from Oklahoma into Memphis Tennessee, and south a short way into Mississippi on I-55, there has been the most movement of military equipment this truck driver has seen in the past year or more.
Everything from assorted types of Humvees, portable generators on wheels, larger trucks, and even 6 Naval helicopters still in shrinkwrap. Most were new vehicles and could have been headed to one of the many military instillations on or near I-20 or I-40, perhaps elsewhere too. One new piece of equipment noted were military olive drab portable air conditioners. DUH? These units could cool a rather large building or portable building of at least 50x100. There are still all sorts, sizes, and colors of portable generators moving everywhere. You see these kinds of generators frequently but not like the past several months.
Have seen this after seeing information about Yellowstone and a possible volcanic eruption. Not sure what to make of it. FYI ...

Anyway, I've come to find out, there's a dispute about the insurance money Silverstein is expecting to receive as a result of the attacks and the implo ... er ... collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7.
Writes British researcher Steve Watson on PrisonPlanet.com:
Silverstein is determined to rake in every last penny possible from 9/11 and has already secured billions from other insurers without a blink of an eye over the fact that he leased the property just six weeks before the attacks and has since been caught in an admission that he ordered at least one of the buildings, WTC 7, "pulled" on 9/11.
Check out Watson's excellent report on the 9/11 insurance scandal right here.

Writes Robert Weitzel, CommonDreams.org:
(T)he world should note that America has been waging a "low yield" nuclear war that has been killing civilians for almost two decades.
Missing from this war are mushroom clouds and very loud booms. Present is nuclear fallout with its insidious long-term effects on both combatant and civilian and its perpetual contamination of land and water resources.
The United States began waging nuclear war in Kosovo in 1990 and has continued through the Persian Gulf War, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The "nuclear tipped" weapon of choice in each of these theaters of war has been depleted uranium (DU) munitions.
Why does this go on? The War Machine marches on, caring not who stands in the way.

From Tulsa's Bruce Delay -- Heartland Strategy
Something amazing happened in Tulsa this weekend. The Mid-Con Conference basketball tournament began. Oral Roberts University is in this NCAA conference, and the game was held at the "U-MAC" a very nice arena at Union High School (Union has a better basketball arena and football stadium than most small colleges have).
Before the game, they did a nice salute to our soldiers. Then the Color Guard marched out with the Flags: The USA flag... the Canadian flag... the Mexican flag... and the Oklahoma flag. No teams in the Mid-Con conference reside in Canada or Mexico. A quick look at the game's program revealed that no players from either team were even from Canada or Mexico.
As the National Anthem was sung, in deference to the American flag, the Oklahoma State flag was dipped to a lower posture. That's proper flag etiquette. But the Mexican and Canadian flags remained erect. The efforts by proponants of the North American Union (ala the European Union) to dissolve our borders and remove our national soveriegnty - marches on.
Will Americans care enough to do something? If an entire basketball arena full of people had approached the color guard, demanding the Canadian and Mexican flags be lowered and removed, what would have happened? I know if I had been there, I would have had to go down there and make a scene. That's what it's going to take.
UPDATE (3/8/07): The Tulsa minister, Bruce DeLay, who brought this to my attention, got back with me and said the flags were provided by some Shriners who represent all of North America. I'll accept that explanation, I s'pose.

Well, yesterday, peace activists from all around metro Oklahoma City went to Fallin's OKC office, just a few blocks away from here, and tried to serve her with
Writes activist James Nimmo over at Oklahoma Indymedia:
Februrary 22, 2007 (Oklahoma City) Today, CD 5 Congresswoman Mary Fallin ordered a contingent of 30 peaceful constituents to leave not only her public office but the entire building as well. In addition, Mrs. Fallin, by way of staff, ordered media cameras and print reporters to leave as well and not cover the attempted eviction of peaceful constituents wanting to speak with her staff about the Iraq War, which is totally supported by Mrs. Fallin.
Her OKC office is located at First National Center, first floor, east end, the same location used by the gubernatorially- -defeated candidate former Congressman Ernest Istook.As a three-term Oklahoma lieutenant governor, Fallin learned to take orders from her GOP party, withdrawing from a challenge to former Governor Frank Keating's second term and she is sticking to the game plan of supporting men in superior positions of power regardless of the morality of the issue.
Make sure you read the rest of James' article at the link above.
Clearly, Fallin doesn't support all voices in Oklahoma and is criminally ignoring what a 'surge' would cause in the ruined country of Iraq. Fallin was a terrible choice to represent our congressional district. She's an imperial bootlicker and doesn't really support the troops. It's sick and sad and Fallin should hang her head in shame.

Notes blogger Erik Davis at Techgnosis, via BoingBoing.net: The fire started in a Quizno’s sub shop, that exemplar of tasteful dining, and went on to thoroughly destroy a number of joints, including Goomba’s Italian Restaurant, a Starbucks, and some storage offices belonging to Big Sur’s Esalen Institute—ground zero for the human potential movement and now an upscale New Age resort. Esalen lost little of their own archives, the vast bulk of their books, photos, audio and videotapes residing elsewhere.
Strangely, I was reading a blog last night about John Lennon and strange occult Beatles stuff and they noted that Charles "Helter Skelter" Manson, had played with "The Family" at the Esalen Institute just days before the Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969. Weirdsville!

Writes Rep. Paul: Clichés about supporting the troops are designed to distract us from failed policies, policies promoted by powerful special interests that benefit from war. Anything to steer the discussion away from the real reasons the war in Iraq will not end anytime soon.
There's just no legitimacy to the argument that voting against funding the war somehow harms our troops. Perpetuating and escalating the war only serve those whose egos are attached to some claimed victory in Iraq, and those with a determination to engineer regime change in Iran.
Don't believe for a minute that additional congressional funding is needed so our troops can defend themselves or extricate themselves from the war zone. That's nonsense. The DOD has hundreds of billions of dollars in the pipeline available to move troops anywhere on earth – including home.
We shouldn't forget that the administration took $600 million from the war in Afghanistan and used it in Iraq, before any direct appropriations were made for the invasion of Iraq. Funds are always available to put our troops into harms way; they are always available for leaving a war zone.
End the war! Bring our troops home!
Notes this AP story:
(Drugmaker Merck), a New Jersey-based drug company, could generate billions in sales if Gardasil -- at $360 for the three-shot regimen -- were made mandatory across the country. Most insurance companies now cover the vaccine, which has been shown to have no serious side effects.
Cathie Adams, president of the conservative watchdog group Texas Eagle Forum, said the relationship between Merck and Women in Government is too cozy.
"What it does is benefit the pharmaceutical companies, and I don't want pharmaceutical companies taking precedence over the authorities of parents," she said.
Adams said Merck's method of lobbying quietly through groups like Women in Government in addition to meeting directly with legislators are common in state government but still should raise eyebrows. "It's corrupt as far as I'm concerned," she said.
Of course it's corrupt. Merck is facing huge losses regarding the Vioxx scandal. Merck is looking to make a bundle with these live, mutated cancer viruses.
... and this important info related to Gov. Perry's insane executive order, compiled by friend and researcher Joey Dauben over at Ellis County Observer. Check this out:
Two things to consider about vaccines (other than the fact The Ellis County Observer advocates refusal for vaccinations):
1) Many of these Merck vaccines contain aborted fetal tissue;
2) Many of these Merck vaccines contain processed swine flesh, so for those who keep kosher diets, vaccines are unclean ...
... and that's just for starters, gang. Be wary of men offering vaccines ...

So ... I called my old editor, Neal White, down at the WDL and he told me that while he wasn't familiar with all the details, he wasn't being told to change the Daily Light's stance on the TTC, which is largely critical of the plan. Well, that's good but things could change quickly.
My good buddy Joey Dauben, over at the Ellis County Observer, has a report on this as well. Keep the pressure on 'em, gang!

At Saturday's anti-war protest at the State Capitol in Oklahoma City, I had a chance to approach State Sen. Andrew Rice (speaking by the Peace Pole at upper left in dark coat and hat) who lost a brother on 9/11 at the World Trade Center.
I had heard a lot about Sen. Rice and that he was a new progressive representing a district in Oklahoma City. Of course when I heard about his connection to 9/11 via the tragic death of his brother David, I had to ask him about whether or not he felt 9/11 could've been an "inside job." Well, after he finished speaking about Saudi oil money funding the terrorists who perpetrated the attacks and how this is linked to oil interests in America, the crowd continued its march down Lincoln Blvd. south of the State Capitol.
But I shook Sen. Rice's hand and asked him directly if it was an "inside job." He said he wasn't sure about that but that more needed to be investigated and that "the truth would eventually come to light." Then, a man named Porter who had spoken earlier on the Capitol steps and had taken a libertarian stance on issues, questioned Rice as well, asking about an "inside job" and issues related to World Trade Center 7. I asked him if he knew of former WTC janitor William Rodriguez and his report of bombs going off below him in the basement. Rice seemed interested in this information and acknowledged it was all very strange and 9/11 required further investigation. I know if I had lost a family member that day, under suspicious circumstances, I would be asking all sorts of questions. Anyone thinking it was simply "terr'ists with boxcutters" is living in a dreamworld.
That was pretty much it. Porter and I continued walking back to the Capitol and I told him how I pretty much knew intuitively on 9/11/01 that the government had been involved in the attacks. We talked about Alex Jones and the truth movement, including Matthew Woodson, the young man who ran for congress from Oklahoma City. It was good to meet a likeminded soul who was more vocal about his questions regarding 9/11. As for Sen. Andrew Rice, well, he's new and I think if he were given the right information I think he'd come to our side.

Writes Madsen: Using enlisted airman, acting as "rioters," as "guinea pigs," a beam was directed at them from a parabolic antenna located 500 yards away atop a Humvee. The wave heated the skin of the "rioters" to 130 degrees, creating the feeling in the targets that they were being burned alive, scattering them in the process.
Madsen continues to note that this weapon was demonstrated for journalists in advance of the major anti-war march planned for this weekend in Washington and cities like here in Oklahoma City. Of course Alex Jones (who had a great interview with director David Lynch on his show today) noted these energy beam, crowd-dispersal weapons in 2004 when he attended the Republican National Convention in New York City.
Yes, there will be government operatives in all these cities, and in some cases they may try to rile people up in order to give itchy-trigger-fingered cops a reason to test out their new toys. I remember when I marched in New Orleans in late '02, prior to the start of the illegal Iraq war, me and everyone participating in the march had their photo taken by men who were clearly cops/agents of some sort.
And now it appears we have a new "Sheriff" in town. More can be read about this supposed "nonlethal weapon" (yeah, right, like the Taser, huh?) in this 2004 story in the Boston Business Journal.
