Buying the War - WIG Press Zombies
In the lead up to and wake of Bill Moyers' much-anticipated mega-dunk on the Washington press corps this week, we are seeing the ugliest side of Beltway culture -- sophistry and damage control.
-- the meltdown, damage-control freak out. Only what's new is that instead of politicians melting down, it's reporters themselves. And never underestimate the desperation that comes when Establishment Washington unifies to try to defend itself.
Over here we have professional power-worshiper Chris "It Doesn't Matter Where Political Money Comes From" Cillizza attempting to defend Tim Russert, and in the process insulting the recently deceased journalistic hero David Halberstam.
Brutal bullies: Time to stand up to the US and Israeli bullies
Paul J. Balles looks at how the USA "has become the world's sickest, most inhumane terrorist state". He calls on the rest of the world to "adopt a zero tolerance policy for bullying" by the USA and Israel."
Living through five or six major wars has hardened me to what I thought were the extremes of inhuman cruelty and brutality.
Two things made those extremes almost bearable: the brutality always revealed - at least according to the media coverage - the viciousness of the enemy. It was therefore quite understandable when our "brave men and women" pulverized the enemy.

Military Leaders Question 9/11
Numerous high-level U.S. military leaders have publicly questioned 9/11.
Exposing Washington Press media whores for the WIG pimps! The Selling of AMERIKKKA through Fear, greed and intimidation.
Four years ago on May 1, President Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln and delivered a speech in front of a giant "Mission Accomplished" banner. Despite profound questions and the increasing violence in Baghdad, many in the press confirmed the White House's claim that the war was won. How did they get it so wrong? How did the evidence disputing the existence of weapons of mass destruction and the link between Saddam Hussein and 9/11 continue to go largely unreported?

Moyers piece is important not just because it has exposed the entire sham that was pre-war Beltway journalism, but also because he has finally exacted a price -- in this case, humiliation -- from the reporters whose power-worshiping,
must-stay-on-the-cocktail-party-circuit tendencies led them to aggressively push this country into war. And we can hope that fear of future humiliation will help prevent another gross abdication of responsibility next time around.
There's Never Been a Real 9/11 Investigation : Still think the government really investigated and disclosed what happened on 9/11?
You might reasonably assume that the 9/11 Commission investigated September 11th, and concluded that Osama Bin Laden and his group of terrorists were solely responsible.
Unfortunately, a quick look at the government's investigations reveals that -- not only has there never been a real investigation -- but the behavior of government representatives in willfully obstructing all attempts at investigation comprises evidence of guilt. Specifically, in all criminal trials, evasiveness, obstruction, and destruction of evidence all constitute strong circumstantial evidence that the accused is guilty or, at the very least, not to be believed. 9/11 is no different.
Indeed, there are even indications that false evidence may have been planted to deflect attention from the real perpetrators.

.......In the end, what has ruled America for the past 43 years is a corrupt government that took power on November 22nd, 1963, in a coup d'etat that worked from that day forward towards the goal of turning the United States of America into a Fascist machine for World Conquest: the New World Order.
The Bushes and The Lost King
Just as with the events on 9/11, there is the "official story"; in the case of Kennedy, it was the "lone gunman"; in the case of 9/11, it was 19 improbable terrorists directed by a cave-dwelling mastermind. In fact, Osama bin Laden and Lee Harvey Oswald have a lot in common: both worked for the CIA.

How to become Dictator in 6 easy steps
Well, that depends. Specifically, it depends on what being American means. If being American means upholding the Constitution, believing in our democratic republic, and striving to meet the ideals of our founding fathers, then those who question the official story are some of the most patriotic Americans around. Everyone I know in the 9/11 truth movement loves liberty, freedom and justice, respects the Constitution, and values truth.
On the other hand, if being American means going to war under false pretenses, and murdering innocent American civilians as part of a "false flag terror" campaign to whip up hatred of an enemy, then no -- we don't want any part of that.
Please stop for one minute and reflect on the following question: Who are the true patriots:
Those who murder innocent Americans and falsely blame it on others and who intentionally twist intelligence in order to deceive the people into unnecessary wars?
Those who seek to expose such practices, and to prevent the spilling of more innocent American blood?
CHENEY a breathtaking act of arrant arrogance
A Vice President Without Borders, Bordering on Lunacy
It’s hard to imagine how Dick Cheney could get more dastardly, unless J. K. Rowling has him knock off Harry Potter next month.
Harry’s cloak of invisibility would be no match for Vice’s culture of invisibility.
I’ve always thought Cheney was way out there — the most Voldemort-like official I’ve run across. But even in my harshest musings about the vice president, I never imagined that he would declare himself not only above the law, not only above the president, but actually his own dark planet — a separate entity from the White House.
I guess a man who can wait 14 hours before he lets it dribble out that he shot his friend in the face has no limit on what he thinks he can keep secret. Still, it’s quite a leap to go from hiding in a secure, undisclosed location in the capital to hiding in a secure, undisclosed location in the Constitution.
Dr. No used to just blow off the public and Congress as he cooked up his shady schemes. Now, in a breathtaking act of arrant arrogance, he’s blowing off his own administration.
