(The release of the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program has everyone breathing a sigh of relief.)


The Skeptical Camp Emerges on Irans Nuclear Ambitions

"Opinions" have absolutely nothing to do with the facts as presented by this National Intelligence Estimate "...with the authority of 16 American spy agencies in agreement that Iran halted its nuclear arms effort in 2003, a conclusion meant to “ensure that an accurate presentation is available.”

The bottom line is, this administration has absolutely nothing with which to "sell" a war against Iran as legitimate, period, end of discussion.


Intel report sinks CNN Iran special

Yes, they were all set to fed us more war propaganda.


Desperation on the cusp of madness.

US officials say Iran nuclear weapons program stopped in 2003

This is getting played all over the mainstream media.

At the risk of being prematurely jubilant, it looks like the invasion of Iran has just been canceled!

There is still the possibility of a lone nut head-of-state trying to restart the wars with a false-flag attack, but right now, it looks like the war wagon just ran off the road to Tehran!


THE NEOCONS ARE IN A FRENZY OVER THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATE REPORT: THEY THINK IT’S A C.I.A. PLOT AGAINST BUSH!

The same people who bitch and moan at 9-11 "conspiracy theories" are claiming they are the victims of a conspiracy.


Israel considering strike on Iran despite US intelligence report

"We didn't buy and blackmail the entire US Government just to quit now, dammit"


Like Iraq, US intel on Iran faulty

In both the cases of Iraq and now Iran, Administration leaders (who generally don't have their kids in the military) were banging the drums of war with their lies so hard it's a wonder their hands didn't fall off in the process.

The case for war cannot now be "sold" either to the American people, or to the world.

And the issue of further UN sanctions is now a non-starter.


'US report should not deter world' | Jerusalem Post

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that Iran was continuing in its efforts to produce a nuclear bomb despite the report. According to the minister, Iran had indeed stopped its program four years ago but has since renewed it.

Looks like "Big Lie" Barak got caught unawares on this one, and continues to lie not only to his own people, but to the world, regarding Iran's ambition.

Hey, Ehud, I've got a proposition for you; if you feel that Iran is such an existential threat to the existence of Israel, why doesn't Israel go in on its own, and bomb the heck out of it?

There's just one little detail, however, to which you just might want to pay attention.

Russia has stated clearly that an attack on Iran will be interpreted as an attack on Russia.

Let's see.....an Israeli war with Russia, now just how would that play out??


Israel considering strike on Iran despite US intelligence report

Senior Israeli officials warned today they were still considering the option of a military strike against Iran, despite a fresh US intelligence report that concluded Tehran was no longer developing nuclear weapons.

Remember, Bush has already committed the United States (that means YOUR kids, not his own) to "defend" Israel in the event of wars, INCLUDING WARS THAT ISRAEL STARTS.


Israel warns Iran to co-operate or pay price

Israel has warned Iran to either co-operate with the West over its uranium enrichment program or face military action.

Just another reminder who is really behind the push for war.

There is a saying that the fastest way to get a dog to stop chasing cars is to let him catch one. So, I am in favor of Israel invading Iran. Of course, I am opposed to the US stepping in to save Israel from its own folly, and with Bush's and the NeoCon's credibility in the toilet (sorry 'Al Qaeda') nobody but the Israel-firsters will support US involvement in Israel's wars (and as far as I am concerned the Israel-Firsters should be first to go). With the current pubic mood, exacerbated by the absolute shamelessness and complete lack of repentance at having been caught yet again lying to start a war, the first politician that stands up to support sending you sons and daughters to die in a a Israel starts will find themselves skinned, dipped in turpentine, and finished with a thick coat of tar and feathers.

The bottom line: Under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which Iran and the US BUT NOT ISRAEL have signed, Iran has a legal right to enrich uranium to the 3% enrichment needed to fuel their power station. Under the NPT, the US has no legal grounds to demand that Iran stop. Israel, which has not signed the NNPT, which is building nuclear weapons in a no-longer-clandestine laboratory underneath Dimona, is in essence saying to Iran, do what we want or we will have the Americans kill you.

Israel, backed by the American "Big Brother", has become the neighborhood bully in the Mideast. And we know there is only one way a bully ever stops being a bully.


Bush insists Iran poses danger, despite report


US Wins Support for New Pressure on Iran

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice won support from European allies Thursday for new U.N. sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

NATO foreign ministers agreed to stay the course in seeking fresh measures at the United Nations to persuade Iran to stop uranium enrichment and reprocessing despite a new U.S. intelligence report that concluded the country halted it nuclear weapons ambitions in 2003.

Rice probably offered them a bigger slice of the plunder to get them to agree to this.

JUST A REMINDER: Under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which the United States, the nuclear members of NATO, and Iran have signed, Iran has a legal right to enrich uranium for their power plant. It is the US and NATO who are in violation of that treaty, and all because little paranoid Israel, which really HAS been building nuclear weapons in a secret plant underneath the Dimona reactor, cannot accept that Iran has not been as deceitful and duplicitous as Israel.


*** Bush Drops Standard on Iran as Credibility Questioned

President George W. Bush, his credibility under fire because of intelligence that Iran halted its nuclear weapons drive in 2003, adopted a new argument yesterday to justify tougher sanctions: Just knowing how to produce a bomb is dangerous.


**** White House Reveals Bush Lied: Was Told In August Iran’s Nuclear Program ‘May Be Suspended’

The White House statement released by Dana Perino tonight also states McConnell told Bush “the new information might cause the intelligence community to change its assessment of Iran’s covert nuclear program.”

This is significant. The White House Staff is breaking ranks.

So, either Bush is lying, or Israel really DOES run this country!


Lavrov: There Is No Proof That Iran Ever Had a Nuclear Program

December 5, 2007 LPAC--The recently released National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report, which has sent a cat among Cheney's killer pigeons, claims Iran has abandoned its nuclear program some time in 2003. However, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who met with Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili this week, said Dec.5 there was no proof Iran ever had a weapons program, as claimed in the U.S. report. In Tehran, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini dismissed the U.S. report that said Tehran pursued nuclear weapons up to 2003.

Lavrov said Russia supports Iran's determination to cooperate with the IAEA, and that Russian President Vladimir Putin this week urged Iran to answer all IAEA questions and suspend enrichment. Acting Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov last September told visiting French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner that neither military force nor unilateral sanctions were acceptable in dealing with Iran's nuclear program.


Well then, I guess Bill Clinton shouldn't have given Iran the blueprints for a nuclear weapon!

http://www.nationalledger.com/cgi-bin/artman/exec/view.cgi?archive=1&num=4940

Folks, everyone knows how to kill their neighbor. But we don't kill people for knowing how to kill. We kill then when they actually try to do it.

The same applies here. Pretty much everyone knows how to build a nuclear weapon. Even I have a pretty good grasp of the basic principles. Under Bush's new policy of invading nations for simply knowing how to build a nuclear weapon, every nation on Earth is now a target.

It is time to face facts. Bush is a danger to the United States and to the world. Congress is a danger to the United States and to the world for not dealing with him.

Last night, radio talk show host and former US Justice Department official Mark Levin shocked many listeners when he reported that President Bill Clinton gave nuclear technology to the Iranians in a harebrained scheme.

He said that the transfer of classified data to Iran was personally approved by then-President Clinton and that the CIA deliberately gave Iranian physicists blueprints for part of a nuclear bomb that likely helped Tehran advance its nuclear weapons development program.

The CIA, using a double-agent Russian scientist, handed a blueprint for a nuclear bomb to Iran, according to a new book "State of War" by James Risen, the New York Times reporter, who exposed the Bush administration's controversial NSA spying operation, claims the plans contained fatal flaws designed to derail Tehran's nuclear drive.

But the deliberate errors were so rudimentary they would have been easily fixed by sophisticated Russian nuclear scientists, the book said.

The operation, which took place during the Clinton administration in early 2000, was code named Operation Merlin and "may have been one of the most reckless operations in the modern history of the CIA," according to Risen.

It called for the unnamed scientist, a defector from the Soviet Union, to offer Iran the blueprint for a "firing set" -- the intricate mechanism which triggers the chain reaction needed for a nuclear explosion.

The Russian was told by CIA officers that the Iranians already had the technology detailed in the plans and that the ruse was simply an attempt by the agency to find out the full scope of Tehran's nuclear knowledge.

But, contrary to orders not to open the packet, he added a note which made it clear he could help fix the flaws for money.

Risen states in his book, "It's not clear who originally came up with the idea, but the plan [to give Tehran nuclear blueprints] was first approved by Clinton."

This is just another chapter in the Bill Clinton saga of giving weapons technology to enemies of the United States. He's provided missile technology to the Chinese, which increased the accuracy of their ballistic missiles, and he provided nuclear technology to the North Koreans that eventually enabled them to develop nuclear weapons.

Risen said the Clinton-approved plan ended up handing Tehran "one of the greatest engineering secrets in the world, providing the solution to one of a handful of problems that separated nuclear powers such as the United States and Russia from rogue countries such as Iran that were desperate to join the nuclear club but had so far fallen short."

Mark Levin, director of the Landmark Legal Foundation, said that thanks to Clinton Iran was able to "leapfrog one of the last remaining engineering hurdles blocking its path to a nuclear weapon."

Ironically, Risen's New York Times has declined to cover Mr. Clinton's Iranian nuclear debacle -- concentrating instead on his book's dubious claims that the National Security Agency was first authorized to commence domestic wiretapping by President Bush, according to NewsMax and Levin.

NewsMax stated that Risen's report could also have a serious implications for Sen. Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign. Mrs. Clinton has been sharply critical of President Bush's handling of the Iranian nuclear crisis, complaining that a nuclear-armed Tehran would be a much more serious threat to the US than Iraq. However, NewsMax may be proven wrong about Sen. Clinton if the news media continue to ignore this story.

"Don't hold your breath waiting for the elite media to create a frenzy over this story. They will never hurt either Clintons with such a damning report," says former intelligence officer Sid Francis.

War critics astonished as US hawk admits invasion was illegal

International lawyers and anti-war campaigners reacted with astonishment yesterday after the influential Pentagon hawk Richard Perle conceded that the invasion of Iraq had been illegal.

So is lying to Congress, which Bush did when he claimed Iraq was in violation of UN Resolutions by being in possession of banned weapons.

Perle's attitude towards international law smacks of the "True Believer", someone who truly believes they know what's best for the country and that this justifies ignoring the laws. Such arrogance has landed this nation in trouble many times before, and Perle is clearly of that same mindset.


No Iran Attack? Don't Be So Sure…

The release of the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program has everyone breathing a sigh of relief.

Before we segue into all the reasons why we shouldn't be letting our guard down, however, let's take a moment or three to savor the War Party's distress. This morning's edition of National Review Online is a veritable cornucopia of spittle-on-the-screen invective. There's a whole section devoted to debunking the debunkers, and each and every article is a study in sophistry elevated almost to an art form.

Michael Ledeen avers that since "you can't prove a negative," the NIE is wrong. Thus, there is no need for any empirical evidence, since, after all, you can't be 100 percent certain, so Iran is guilty as a given. And weren't these the same guys who thought Iraq had WMD? What Ledeen fails to mention is that he and his gang agreed with that assessment, but in the solipsistic universe of the neocons, a different set of rules applies.

Keep in mind that Michael Ledeen was identified by the Italian Parliament as one of the forgers who created the fake documents used to "prove" that Iraq was buying uranium ore from Niger.


Man opens fire at Omaha mall, killing 8

And JUST in time to get the mainstream media off of Bush's lies about Iran's nuclear weapons!

Et comme le scandale éclate à propos de mensonges éhontés pronouncés par le régime Bush pour partir en guerre contre des innocentes victimes, des civils, tout comme fut le cas pour Hillary Clinton qui s’est fait prendre à faire infilter des débats par des gens qu’elle paie, et qui le lendemain s’est retrouvé victime d’une attaque «terroriste» dans un de ses bureau, Bush échappe au scandale avec cette histoire de tuerie dans un centre d’achat qui a un syncronisme pour le moins assez perturbant.


Cafferty: White House Illegally Deleted Over TEN MILLION e-mails

Cafferty: A government watchdog group now says more than 10 million White House emails are missing. Citizens for the Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) described this massive hole in White House email records last April. At that time they thought the number was 5 million - Now they say it is more than 10 million emails. In one of the great understatements of this here Christmas season, the group says that this revised estimate - quote - highlights that this is a very serious and systematic problem at the White House - unquote. Both CREW and another private group called the National Security archive are suing the Bush administration to try to get information about all these missing emails. The White House email problems first came to light during special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s investigation into the leak of CIA officer Valerie Plame’s identity.


La CIA détruit les preuves qu’elle pratiquait la torture


7 décembre | Au cours de la semaine, la CIA a été informée que le New York Times rendrait public, vendredi, (...)

http://www.courrierint.com/article.asp?obj_id=80516

Au cours de la semaine, la CIA a été informée que le New York Times rendrait public, vendredi, le fait que l’agence américaine a, en 2005, détruit deux enregistrements d’interrogatoires musclés afin d’éliminer des preuves de torture. Face à cette information, le directeur de la CIA, Michael Hayden, a précédé, jeudi 6 décembre, le quotidien new-yorkais en admettant publiquement que son agence avait bel et bien détruit plusieurs enregistrements d’interrogatoires sensibles. Cette question des tortures ne cesse de poursuivre inlassablement la CIA, tant les dénégations et les mensonges, qui entourent cette ténébreuse affaire, sont nombreux. Le sénateur Edward M. Kennedy a qualifié ces révélations de « cover-up ».

Dans un mémo adressé jeudi au personnel de l’agence américaine de renseignement et pour « prévenir le risque que des faits soient mal interprétés » devant l’imminence des révélations du NYT, Michael Hayden reconnaît que : « l’agence a détruit ces enregistrements après avoir déterminé qu’ils n’avaient plus de valeur en terme de renseignement et qu’ils n’avaient pas de lien avec des enquêtes internes, législatives ou judiciaires en cours, dont le procès du (Français) Zacarias Moussaoui ». Cette version n’est pas celle qu’avancent le New York Times et la BBC. Pour le journal, ces enregistrements remettent en cause les techniques utilisées par la CIA pour mener les interrogatoires. La BBC soutient que les agents auraient effectivement eu recours à la torture. Dans sa version des faits, le New York Times, dont la version française a été relayée par le Courrier international révèle que : « Les enregistrements ont été détruits notamment parce que les officiers étaient inquiets de ce que des vidéos montrant des méthodes d’interrogatoires dures pourraient créer un risque sur le plan légal pour les employés de la CIA ».

La destruction de ces enregistrements pose la question de savoir si des membres de la CIA ont dissimulé des informations au Congrès, aux tribunaux et à la Commission du 11-Septembre sur certains aspects de son programme. Les vidéos n'ont été transmises ni au tribunal fédéral chargé de juger l'affaire de Zacarias Moussaoui, soupçonné de terrorisme, ni à la Commission sur le 11-Septembre, désignée par le président Bush et le Congrès, et qui avait officiellement réclamé à la CIA des transcriptions et d'autres preuves documentaires récoltées lors des interrogatoires de prisonniers.


C.I.A. Destroyed 2 Tapes Showing Interrogations

The videotapes showed agency operatives in 2002 subjecting terrorism suspects — including Abu Zubaydah, the first detainee in C.I.A. custody — to severe interrogation techniques. The tapes were destroyed in part because officers were concerned that video showing harsh interrogation methods could expose agency officials to legal risks, several officials said.

Which essentially admits that the CIA was engaged in illegal methods, i.e. torture, of these individuals.

As detailed below, these particular tapes are the ones it is claimed proof that Al Qaeda was behind 9-11. These tapes are ow gone, so we only have the government's worthless word what they contained. But more importantly, it confirms that the official declaration of who was behind 9-11 was never based on facts, but on coerced confessions.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.


More Evidence of Obstruction of Justice in 9/11 Investigation

By now you've heard that the CIA destroyed videotapes of interrogations of alleged Al Qaeda members. The interesting part of this story is that the 9/11 Commission claimed that it obtained most of its information about the attacks from these interrogations (and then only indirectly as reported by the military to the Commission).

If the official story of 9-11 is accurate, then why has so much of the evidence been destroyed?

Iran stops selling oil in U.S. dollars -report

Iran has completely stopped selling any of its oil for U.S. dollars, an Iranian news agency reported on Saturday, citing the oil minister of the world's fourth-largest crude producer.

The dollar will take a major hit from this. As more nations switch to the Euro, foreign demand for dollars will drop, and that demand was propping up the already-weak dollar.

Iran just kicked out the prop. And nobody will blame them after confirmation that President Bush knowingly lied about Iran's nuclear capability to try to start another war.

Thanks a whole bunch, Dubya. We The People continue to take it in the teeth for the favors you do for your Neocon masters.

ISRAELI MINISTER CANCELS LONDON TRIP ON WAR CRIMES ARREST FEARS

JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israeli Public Security Minister Avi Dichter has cancelled a trip to Britain over concerns he could be arrested on war crimes allegations, his spokesman said on Thursday.

As head of Israel's Shin Beth internal intelligence agency, Dichter was involved in the 2002 Israeli attack in Gaza in which an Israeli warplane dropped a one-tonne bomb on the house of the head of Hamas's military wing, Salah Shehade, killing him, his bodyguard and 15 civilians, many of them children.

Gaza Strip hospitals face "humanitarian disaster"

Hospitals in the Gaza Strip have been forced to shut down their emergency power generators, resulting in a looming "humanitarian disaster" due to Israel’s severe reductions in fuel supplies, said Muawiya Hassanein, the director of ambulance and emergency services in the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Ethnic cleansing, one sick Gazan at a time: the Israeli government officials who cooked this one up have got to be very proud of themselves.


Appeal from the Minstry of Health, Gaza

Appeal - Appeal - Appeal

We have a very series shortage of diesel in the ministry of Health
the majority of the 11 hospitals of MOH do suffer from a shortage of fuel, the same is for the 52 primary health care clinics and vehicles.

I am not speaking now about the consequences but they are catastrophic and include the transportation defect which will not enable the employees of the Ministry to go to their hospitals.

Please. We urge you to help us by applying any sort of pressure that could let the Israelis change their mind about this fatal action that would threaten the lives of thousands of civilians in the already under siege Gaza.

Eight water wells stopped operating in Gaza

The popular anti-sanctions committee warned that eight water wells stopped pumping in different districts of the Gaza Strip as a result of reducing the amount of fuel supplied by Israel.

It appealed to the concerned international organizations and friends of the Palestinian people to intervene to save the Strip from a looming disaster.

In a press release received by the PIC on Monday, the committee stated that the stop of these wells heralds environmental and human disaster in the Gaza Strip, noting that one of those pumps was used in dispensing sewage.

As a result of the Israeli decision to slash fuel supplies to Gaza, most of Gaza fuel stations closed down on Monday and all traffic came to a halt in the Gaza streets, besides the Gaza hospitals are threatened with depletion of their remaining fuel.

Meanwhile, the oil companies in Gaza still refuse to receive their share of fuel supplies, because it was shrunk to a quarter by the Israeli government.

In this regard, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights appealed to the international community, the UN and humanitarian organizations to intervene immediately to pressure the IOA to stop its arbitrary resolution to slash fuel supplies to the Gaza residents, in order to avert a humanitarian disaster in the Strip.

The Israeli supreme court ratified a decision tabled by the Israeli government to reduce the amount of fuel supplies to the Gaza Strip.

For his part, Hasan Jabarin, the director of Adala (Justice) center in occupied Jerusalem, stated that the Israeli supreme court's endorsement of the reduction resolution constitutes a grave violation of the principles of international humanitarian law.

When drinking water becomes infected with raw sewage that has not been processed, the outbreak of cholera is generally not far behind, as has been illustrated with the outbreaks of cholera in Iraq.


Taser


Hearing Impaired (half naked, wet and scared, innocent) Man Tased by Police

"Officers were worried about their own safety because at the time it appeared Williams was refusing to obey their commands to show his hands."

Soooooooo, those poor policemen with their guns and Kevlar were terrified of a wet man in a towel who couldn't hear them.

So they tasered him.


Fla. has 2nd Taser death in 2 days


Tasers: the next generation

The Taser is going wireless.

Until now, the electric-shock gun consisted of two barbed darts attached to wires that shoot out and strike the victim, immobilizing the person with 50,000 volts of electricity, causing severe pain and intense muscle contraction.

But the wires could only extend a few metres. With the new "extended range electronic projectile," or XREP, the Taser has been turned into a kind of self-contained shotgun shell and can be fired, wire-free, from a standard shotgun, which police typically have in their arsenal already.

The first electrode hooks on to the target, the second electrode falls and makes contact elsewhere on the body, completing the circuit and activating the shock. It can blast someone as far as 30 metres away, and, unlike the current stun guns, whose shock lasts five seconds, the XREP lasts 20 seconds, enough time to "take the offender into custody without risking injury to officers."

Tasers are now used by more than 11,000 law enforcement agencies in 44 countries. There are more than 428,000 Tasers in the field. Taser has sold more than 161,000 devices to civilians since 1994. (None in Canada. They're not legal for civilians and won't be shipped here.)

Tuttle says the technology will be used for military applications, "not for a riot in Toronto."

Amnesty says that between 2001 and Sept. 30, 2007, there were more than 290 deaths of individuals struck by police Tasers in North America, including 16 in Canada. It reports that only 25 of those electroshocked were armed, and none with firearms. It's calling for a moratorium on their use by police until a full, independent inquiry is held.

Facebook tracks users even when they're logged out, and without telling them

AP

Facebook has confirmed findings of a CA security researcher that the social-networking site’s Beacon ad service is more intrusive and stealthy than previously acknowledged, an admission that contradicts statements made previously by Facebook executives and representatives.

Stefan Berteau, senior research engineer at CA’s Threat Research Group, wrote in a note about Beacon’s until-then unknown ability to monitor logged-off users’ activities and send the data back to Facebook.

Users aren’t informed that data on their activities at these sites is flowing back to Facebook, nor given the option to block that information from being transmitted, according to Berteau.

The Pentagon has denied President Bush issued a directive for it to resume open-air testing of chemical and biological warfare(CBW) agents that were halted by President Richard Nixon in 1969. Yet, the Pentagon's stated preparations make it appear it is poised to do just that.



-Sur le sujet de lier la dissidence politique avec le terrorisme et à l'ennemi:

Framing The Truth Movement As Terrorists

A disturbing trend has emerged amongst establishment "news" hacks who are raising the same talking point ad infinitum, dubbing the global truth movement as "anarchists" and violent individuals who may be aiding terrorists, and praying for another attack in America so they can blame peaceful activists who are consistently putting the Neo-Cons to shame.

The bill to which these hearings are tied, H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007, defines "violent radicalization" as "The process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change."

It further defines "homegrown terrorism" as "The use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives."

The bill's reference to how "The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization, ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United States by providing access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related propaganda to United States citizens," is shocking.





Senate Bill 1959 to Criminalize Thoughts, Blogs, Books and Free Speech Across America

The end of Free Speech in America has arrived at our doorstep. It's a new law called the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, and it is worded in a clever way that could allow the U.S. government to arrest and incarcerate any individual who speaks out against the Bush Administration, the war on Iraq, the Department of Homeland Security or any government agency (including the FDA). The law has already passed the House on a traitorous vote of 405 to 6, and it is now being considered in the Senate where a vote is imminent. All over the internet, intelligent people who care about freedom are speaking out against this extremely dangerous law.

House Subcommittee Presentation Equates 9/11 Truth With Terrorism

The government is terrified that we are getting the truth out.


The New Inquisition Against 9/11 Truth">The New Inquisition Against 9/11 Truth

"It has become painfully obvious that when Glenn Beck (a CNN host who recently said that Truthers were of the same ilk as Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh) and a Homeland Security subcommittee do a smear job on Truthers they are doing so not because they are violent, or because their ideas are helping to recruit terrorists, but because they are threatening to the whole "War on Terror" agenda -- an agenda foisted on us by the military industrial complex and their corporate sponsors.

Like in the Middle Ages, Beck and Harman are fulfilling the role of the Church's Inquisitors by persecuting and prosecuting those who do not willingly submit to the "War on Terror" religion, which demands that we accept Osama bin Laden and "Islamofascists" as the Devil incarnate, and George W. Bush and the State as our personal Savior. According to Beck and Harman, If you lack the faith, and can't quietly hold your tongue in your disbelief, then the state has no room for you in polite society. Off to Gitmo you go to get tortured and be redeemed by the fascist rod of righteousness."


Ron Paul: Smear Attempts Reflect "Frightened," "Insecure," "Panicking" Establishment

Speaking about recent smear attempts on behalf of people like Glenn Beck, David Horowitz and Bill O'Reilly to link Ron Paul supporters with violence and Islamic terrorists, the Congressman himself said that the attacks were symptomatic of a frightened and insecure establishment who are dumbfounded that people are turning away from authoritarianism and embracing freedom.


NYPD tricking innocent people into committing nonexistent crimes, then charging them with felonies!

Find a wallet, go to jail? New York undercover cops have been leaving wallets and purses around in public spots in the city, then arresting anyone who picks them up and doesn’t present them to a nearby uniformed officer. Some arrestees have otherwise clean records and say they intended to use ID inside the bags to notify the rightful owners. Putting money inside the bags didn’t lead to serious enough charges, in the coppers’ view, so they began salting them with live American Express cards so that the finders could be charged with grand larceny, with four years behind bars.

Don't these cops have real criminals to chase, like, say... a President who lied this nation into one war and got caught trying to lie us all into a second one?

Obviously, I’m not suggesting that you should shoot these fascist pigs, because that would be a waste of your time and energy. The state will just mint more fascist pigs after it tortures and kills you for your effort.


The Virtues of a Disorganized Resistance

Organized resistance has many drawbacks. These drawbacks have seldom been discussed by the opposition. I believe that the only effective resistance is a completely disorganized, decentralized, and leaderless opposition.


What Antiwar Activists Have to Be Thankful For

The really good news is that a large majority of Americans not only oppose the Iraq war, but also are hopping mad that they were lied into initially supporting it. We all know how it's a sin to be "angry," in the neocon-Establishmentarian view of the world, a transgression for which Howard Dean paid with his candidacy, but, this year, it doesn't look like that meme is going to work.

Hate gets a bad rap. But there are times when hate is a perfectly proper response to evil deeds, and rage can provide the energy needed to do what must be done.

So be pissed off. Be VERY pissed off. Nothing corrodes slave chains faster than anger.


Peace Group Barred From Florida Schools

Why, Even If You Have Nothing To Hide, Government Surveillance Threatens Your Freedom

"I've got nothing to hide, so electronic surveillance doesn't bother me. To the contrary, I'm delighted that the Bush Administration is monitoring calls and electronic traffic on a massive scale, because catching terrorists is far more important that worrying about the government's listening to my phone calls, or reading my emails." So the argument goes. It is a powerful one that has seduced too many people.

Millions of Americans buy this logic, and in accepting it, believe they are doing the right thing for themselves, their family, and their friends, neighbors, community and country. They are sadly wrong. If you accept this argument, you have been badly fooled.
