Plan BK: The Solutions - War Heroes Still Exist... (Or "Get your Dr. Phil of my Tupac Chopra")

...let us never forget.


"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

"When we got into office, the thing that surprised me the most was that things were as bad as we'd been saying they were."

"The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation's greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us."

"We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth."

*** Martial Law 9/11: Rise of the Police State ***


War is the root of all sadness in the world.

The Military-Industrial Complex has hijacked the worlds of business, finance, and education, and used them to corrupt the moral fabric of society. This has been a gradual and deliberate process involving a controlling and/or erasing of history to weaken our knowledge-base and sense of identity, and the installation of a rigidity in thinking that's unnatural in humans with a natural end to happiness.


Buddy lost his mind and found his soul at Burning Man, and as long as he doesn't forget where he put it, he'll be vibing right for a fortnight. That's an incredibly valuable position to be in, and can be used as a springboard to an extended positive emotional consistency. This was (partly) a result of being in the most gaudily-selfless environment on earth, where free-expression was endorsed completely, and where people would build beautiful complex structures such as a giant harp made of laser beams - and then leave it alone completely for anyone to enjoy while they wandered around the festival. Top DJ's paid to get in and anonymously played their wax off, and the absolute right of bizarre free expression was not only paramount, it was necessary to fit in.

This dictate doesn't involve acting "bigger" as a personality or expressing it "louder", it was (as I understand it) going beyond merely accepting what was happening as part of an event to having the intellectual courage to embrace the inherent value in it's uniqueness with any appreciative action or thought that maximized the elevated motional equilibrium.

This is not traditional theatre, but rather the interactivity of the highly individual and often spiritual pursuits of all 35,000 wandering visitors in the audience of their own party - those who built mammoth odes to mammoth odes or not.

Yep, it's the best party/spiritual retreat (it's a package deal) on earth.

To give the "builders" their credit, they set the bar really high with some of the crazy stuff they did: I saw a picture of a beautifully intricate three-story tall wooden ball on a four-armed based, with four curved equidistant arms moving closer to a single touch-point for 7 days. On the 7th day the arms finally touched, and the giant intricately carved wooden ball collapsed and shattered into a million pieces.

What's the point?

Figure it out and you'll be happier...


As I remember it (this is an oldie but a goodie), three things hold us back from being comfortable: Fear, Shame, and Revelation.

FEAR: We're scared of a worsening world, we're scared of being poor, we're scared of being robbed, we're scared of getting sick, we're scared of each other...

SHAME: We're ashamed of who we are, we're ashamed of what we know, we're ashamed of each other, we're ashamed of what we say so we get shyer or louder...

REVELATION: We have circles of interest that we reveal more of our true selves to, without realizing that friends are made the fastest with the fullest revelations whether they are "traded" or not. Even in the business world this can work, as one can "network" at full-speed on the "business" and "friendship" tip and see (feel?) which one (if any or both) they get brushed-back on. Word of Mouth is spread through the "What a nice guy!" principle, opportunities expand accordingly, and the stressful list of enemies, adversaries, or those who will not facilitate success grows shorter.


Another friend said she heard far different things about Burning Man, and they were not nearly as "nice". I told her that's just the "middle-management" of intelligence talking, and they don't know what they're talking about.

Middle-Managment Intelligence (MMI) thinks they're "smarter" by "crapping" on things, and by cynically finding the worst possible fantasy as an interpretive framework. Neutral actions are torn apart by suggesting they are inevitably worse than they are or not as good as promised, and unhappy smart people afflicted with LSS (Lisa Simpson Syndrome) who've managed to crack into the "cool" circles of society hold their own by feeding into the bad ideas of "cooler" people. They were "nerds" or insecure in some fashion so they never developed into "leaders", and they facilitate or buy into prevailing bad logic and in order to fit-in. A culture is then wrecked by a race to the bottom of competitive critiques, and by over-intellectualizing possible flaws to the exclusion of seeing or saying it's virtues. This then leads to others quickly drawing "black and white" conclusions using elements from the available templates, as those who say or think (x) are inevitably bad people - despite the fact that no human being can be defined or dismissed based on any one action.

Upper-Management Intelligence (UMI) has a far different approach, and they are celebrated by nearly all of us for "celebrating" life. They are admittedly smarter hence qualifying for their senior positions, and yet to advance up our intelligence food chain we tend to focus on getting better at our MMI skills due to peer pressure. We fail to recognize that UMI skills actually negate the negative effects of peer pressure, and are a moral and ethical shield against the slings and arrows of outrageous insults. We all know to listen to UMI's, and they can be found in the spheres of religion, art, business, culture... just people you know who are nigh-"universally" recognized as cut a cut-above. Their actions are often seen as beyond a human's capacity to repeat - until you realize there's really a crapload of 'em...


Besides, I think a lot of them want us to beat 'em, or at least try.

After all, they didn't finish the job, but they gave it a hell of a start, and we're pretty much jumping on the intellectual bandwagon to victory if we riiide...


It's kind of like seeing Lebron James surpass Michael Jordan as the Greatest Basketball Player of All-Time.

Will it happen?

What if it does?

Well, if it does then the same thing will happen when Michael took the title: we'll all show the last guy(s) mad-love anyway.

Chamberlain, Russell, Maravich, West, Jabbar, Walton, Magic, Bird...

...they all still get mad-love and mad-throwback-money.


In the artistic community,there is often fealty to the idea of an unsurpassable artist, an artist who's work it is sacriligeous to dare to compare.

This is kind of silly, as especially with the "Save The World" folks: they left their stuff here to surpass. That's what it's here for.

If they had the stuff they gave us (and they had their own versions of the same), then they would've evolved even further than their existing achievments. With each artist hopefully bringing a "new" unique flavor anyway, it's not even a matter of copying: it's being able to suggest that the work left by the greats can be used a building blocks to be added to, not targets to inevitably shortfall.

(Or hey, at the very least you can ask them to smoosh-over and make a seat at the headz-table, I mean, they're serving butter-chicken for dinner! ;)

This also tends to retard nuanced criticism, as ideas, methaphors, allegories and such can't be discussed in a comparative sense. This is also silly.

One of my favorite artists is the late-great Tupac Shakur.

Now, we're got to remember a few things about the "young G"...

- He died at 25 years of age just rounding into maintaining maturity.

- He spent a significant chunk of his 5 public years in jail or court.

- He was still formulating his plan which was never finished.

- He spent a fair amount of time drunk and high.

He still accomplished an insane amount of stuff in his short time on earth, but by nearly everyones admission he was not infallible.

(He was probably far more infallible than The Pope who transfers pedophile-priests to different parishes instead of prosecuting them or aggressively censuring them, but he wasn't infallible.)

So, in the hundreds of songs he recorded, there are a few bricks.

And just like every artist has songs that some feel and some don't, separating the work from the infallibility of the artist leads to more honest arguments, a more human look at the individual behind the art, a deeper understanding of good and bad art as a matter of taste, and a belief in the possibility to evolve the artform further.

All individual pursuits can be run through the same intellectual calculus with the same results: today is a new day, today is a new way...


And people do this stuff, which makes all the difference in the world we want to see...

Bush: Radicals Seek to Intimidate World

By TOM RAUM, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 8 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - President Bush, trying to reverse a slide in public support for the war in Iraq, said Thursday that Islamic radicals are seeking to "enslave whole nations and intimidate the world," and called that a prime reason not to cut and run in Iraq.

"There's always a temptation in the middle of a long struggle to seek the quiet life, to escape the duties and problems of the world and to hope the enemy grows weary of fanaticism and tired of murder," he said, seeking to address calls from anti-war activists for a U.S. troop withdrawal.

In a speech before the National Endowment for Democracy, Bush said Islamic militants have made Iraq their main front in a war against civilized society.

"The militants believe that controlling one country will rally the Muslim masses, enabling them to overthrow all moderate governments in the region and establish a radical Islamic empire that spans from Spain to Indonesia," Bush said.

The president has been stepping up his defense of his Iraq policy in the face of declining public support for the war and a crucial test in Iraq with the Oct. 15 constitutional referendum.

Sen. Rick Santorum (news, bio, voting record), R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, said the speech was "one he should've made a few years ago. I'm glad he made it now."

"I've been saying for a long time the president needs to better define this war," Santorum said.

Bush likened the ideology of Islamic militants to communism. And he said they are being "aided by elements of the Arab news media that incites hatred and anti-Semitism."

"Against such an enemy, there's only one effective response: We never back down, never give in and never accept anything less than complete victory," Bush declared.

He spoke as recent polls show declining American support for the war that has thus far claimed more than 1,940 members of the U.S. military. His Iraq policy faces a crucial test in Iraq's Oct. 15 referendum on a new constitution, a vote that Bush has said terrorists will try to derail.

"We are facing a radical ideology with immeasurable objectives to enslave whole nations and intimidate the world," Bush said.

Bush said the terrorists are aided by corrupt charities that direct money to terrorist activities and nations, such as Syria and Iran, calling them "allies of convenience" that back terrorists.

Countering claims that the U.S. military presence in Iraq is fueling radicalism, Bush noted that American troops were not there on Sept. 11, 2001. He said Russia did not support the military action in Iraq, yet a terrorist attack in Beslan, Russia, left more than 300 schoolchildren dead in 2004.

"The terrorists regard Iraq as the central front in the war against humanity. And we must recognize Iraq as the central front in our war on terror," he said.

"Our commitment is clear — we will not relent until the organized international terror networks are exposed and broken and their leaders held to account for their acts of murder," Bush said.

The president said that no one should underestimate the difficulties ahead, nor should anyone be pessimistic about U.S. efforts to battle terrorism.

"With every random bombing, and with every funeral of a child, it becomes more clear that the extremists are not patriots, or resistance fighters," Bush said. "They are murderers at war with the Iraqi people themselves."

Bush vowed not to retreat from Iraq or from the broader war on terrorism. "We will keep our nerve and we will win that victory," he said.

Bush says more sacrifice needed in war on terror

By Steve Holland 2 hours, 2 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush on Thursday rejected critics of the Iraq war who demand a U.S. pullout and cast the conflict as necessary to prevent Islamic militants from gaining a foothold for a sweeping empire.

"We will never back down, never give in and never accept anything less than complete victory," Bush said in a speech on Washington's war on terrorism.

And this Associated Press article on the Tom Delay in indicting the bastard is too long and boring and complicated to know the full story... we won't finish reading it: we'll find it long, we'll find it boring, and we'll find it complicated.

Then we'll be convinced that we don't know the whole story.

Then we'll listen to our favorite "people" who've read stuff for us and comment on it in ways that we "like" - or simply find familiar. I don't think the Battered-Wife Bushites are "enjoying" their insane political position and the loyalty oaths that corrupt their critical thinking skills, and they always seem paranoid or pissed-off.

The only people who are comfortable with the world today are those who seek the truth above all else - and cut the shit when it comes to partisan pledges of allegiance to anything but sincerity. In fact, this has always been the case, but it's been especially important historically when we know people in power are deliberately trying hard to fuck with us - as they historically have.


If you had 10 roommates in your college dorm and money begin going missing, you'd want to find the culprit.

If you have 10,000 enemies in the world and money, sanity, health, reality, progress, peace, and love begin going missing, you should want to find the culprits.

And that's it really:

Why the hell is the world like this?

Why the hell is the world getting worse?

DeLay, Successor Blunt Swapped Donations

By JOHN SOLOMON and SHARON THEIMER, Associated Press Writers 1 hour, 6 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - Reps. Tom DeLay and Roy Blunt, the deputy who succeeded him as House majority leader, orchestrated a political money carousel in 2000 that diverted donations secretly collected for presidential convention parties to some of their own pet causes.

When it all ended, DeLay's private charity, along with the consulting firm that employed DeLay's wife and the Missouri campaign of Blunt's son, Matt, who now is the state's governor, all ended up with a piece of the pie, according to campaign documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

Jack Abramoff, the Washington lobbyist recently charged in an ongoing federal corruption and fraud investigation, and Jim Ellis, the DeLay fundraiser indicted with his boss last week in Texas, also appeared in the picture.

The complicated transactions are drawing scrutiny in legal and political circles after a grand jury indicted DeLay on charges of violating Texas law with a scheme to launder illegal corporate donations to state political candidates.

The government's former chief election enforcement lawyer said the Blunt and DeLay transactions are similar to the Texas case and raise questions that should be investigated regarding whether donors were deceived or the true destination of their money was concealed.

"These people clearly like using middlemen for their transactions," said Lawrence Noble. "It seems to be a pattern with DeLay funneling money to different groups, at least to obscure, if not cover, the original source," said Noble, who was the Federal Election Commission's chief lawyer for 13 years, including 2000, when the transactions occurred.

None of the hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations DeLay collected for the 2000 convention were ever disclosed to federal regulators because the type of group DeLay used wasn't governed by federal law at the time.

DeLay has temporarily stepped aside as House majority leader after being indicted by a Texas prosecutor. Blunt, who had been majority whip, the No. 3 Republican in the House, has taken over much of that role in DeLay's absence.

Spokesmen for the two Republican leaders say they disclosed what was required by law at the time and believe all their transactions were legal, though donors might not always have known where their money was headed.

"It illustrates what others have said, that money gets transferred all the time. This was disclosed to the extent required to be disclosed by applicable law," said Don McGahn, a lawyer for DeLay. "It just shows that donors don't control funds once they're given."

Blunt and DeLay planned all along to raise more money than was needed for the convention parties and then direct some of that to other causes, such as supporting state candidates, according to longtime Blunt aide Gregg Hartley.

"We put together a budget for what we thought we would raise and spend on the convention and whatever was left over we were going to use to support candidates," said Hartley, Blunt's former chief of staff, who answered AP's questions on behalf of the Missouri Republican.

Hartley said he saw no similarity to the Texas case. The fact that DeLay's charity, Christine DeLay's consulting firm and Blunt's son were beneficiaries was a coincidence, Hartley said.

Much of the money, including one donation to Blunt from an Abramoff client accused of running a "sweatshop" garment factory in the Northern Mariana Islands, changed hands in spring 2000, a period of keen interest to federal prosecutors.

During that same time, Abramoff arranged for DeLay to use a concert skybox for donors and to take a golfing trip to Scotland and England that was partly underwritten by some of the lobbyist's clients. Prosecutors are investigating whether the source of some of the money was disguised, and whether some of DeLay's expenses were originally put on the lobbyist's credit card in violation of House rules.

Both DeLay and Blunt and their aides also met with Abramoff's lobbying team several times in 2000 and 2001 on Marianas issues, according to law firm billing records obtained by the AP under an open records request. DeLay was instrumental in blocking legislation opposed by some of Abramoff's clients.

Noble said investigators should examine whether the pattern of disguising the original source of money might have been an effort to hide the leaders' simultaneous financial and legislative dealings with Abramoff and his clients.

"You see Abramoff involved and see the meetings that were held and one gets the sense Abramoff is helping this along in order to get access and push his clients' interest," he said. "And at the same time, you see Delay and Blunt trying to hide the root of their funding.

"All of these transactions may have strings attached to them. ... I think you would want to look, if you aren't already looking, at the question of a quid pro quo," Noble said.

Blunt and DeLay long have been political allies. The 2000 transactions occurred as President Bush was marching toward his first election to the White House, DeLay was positioning himself to be House majority leader and Blunt was lining up to succeed DeLay as majority whip, the third-ranking position in the House.

The entities Blunt and DeLay formed allowed them to collect donations of any size and any U.S. source with little chance of federal scrutiny.

DeLay's convention fundraising arm, part of his Americans for a Republican Majority Political Action Committee (ARMPAC), collected large corporate donations to help wine and dine Republican VIPs during the presidential nominating convention in Philadelphia in late summer 2000. DeLay's group has declined to identify any of the donors.

Blunt's group, a nonfederal wing of his Rely on Your Beliefs Fund, eventually registered its activities in Missouri but paid a $3,000 fine for improperly concealing its fundraising in 1999 and spring 2000, according to Missouri Ethics Commission records.

Both groups — DeLay's and Blunt's — were simultaneously paying Ellis, the longtime DeLay fundraiser.

The DeLay group began transferring money to Blunt's group in two checks totaling $150,000 in spring 2000, well before Republicans met in Philadelphia for the convention. The transfers accounted for most of money Blunt's group received during that period.

DeLay's convention arm sent $50,000 on March 31, 2000. Eight days later, the Blunt group made a $10,000 donation to DeLay's private charity for children and began the first of several payments totaling $40,000 to a Northern Virginia-based political consulting firm formed by DeLay's former chief of staff, Ed Buckham.

That consulting firm at the time also employed DeLay's wife, Christine, according to DeLay's ethics disclosure report to Congress.

Hartley said Blunt was unaware that Mrs. DeLay worked at the firm when he made the payments, and that she had nothing to do with Blunt's group.

On April 14, 2000, Concorde Garment Manufacturing, based in the Northern Mariana Islands, part of Abramoff's lobbying coalition, contributed $3,000 to Blunt's group.

Hartley said the donation was delivered during a weekend of fundraising activities by Blunt and DeLay but his boss did not know who solicited it.

Concorde, derided for years in lawsuits as a Pacific island sweatshop, paid a $9 million penalty to the U.S. government in the 1990s for failing to pay workers' overtime. The company was visited by DeLay.

The company was a key member of the Marianas garment industry that the islands' government was trying to protect when it hired Abramoff to lobby DeLay, Blunt and others to keep Congress from imposing tougher wage and tax standards on the islands.

After the November 2000 election, Abramoff's firm billed its Mariana Islands clients for at least one meeting with Blunt and three meetings with Blunt's staff, billing records show. Abramoff's team also reported several meetings with DeLay and his staff on the issue, including one during the presidential convention.

On May 24, 2000, just before DeLay left with Abramoff for the Scottish golfing trip, DeLay's convention fundraising group transferred $100,000 more to Blunt's group. Within three weeks, Blunt turned around and donated the same amount to the Missouri Republican Party.

The next month, the state GOP began spending large amounts of money to help Blunt's son, Matt, in his successful campaign to become Missouri secretary of state. On July 25, 2000, the state GOP made its first expenditure for the younger Blunt, totaling just over $11,000. By election day, that figure had grown to more than $160,000.

Hartley said Blunt always liked to help the state party and the fact that his son got party help after his donation was a coincidence. "They are unrelated activities," he said.

Exchanges of donations occurred again in the fall. Just a few days before the November election, DeLay's ARMPAC gave $50,000 to the Missouri GOP. A month later, the Missouri GOP sent $50,000 to DeLay's group.

Watch CNN rip the balls out of criticism suggesting martial law is a bad idea... here.

So, based on the character flaws demonstrated so far by these assholes, in no way should you think this "CNN Criticism" of Bush's preference for the military to be used domestically to police and herd and quarantine populations in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution's Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 that was enacted to specifically prevent a tyrannical takeover by the Federal Government... the event of a big "flu", is in any way severe or authoritative.

It's not.

It was just "necessary".

They did what was "necessary" to convince us they are accurately and fairly criticizing it as part of their coverage of what too many people are upset about not to be a story.

We all feel this is kinda scary.

However, there are many ways to write a story, and many ways to write a blip on the radar screen of modern day history. This should be News as Narrative, not just a badly written and shallow news story, and if they're threatening to do this (or "suggesting" it), then we should ensure that any evidence found they're trying today or tomorrow should be front page news. Or find news sources where it is so we aren't buying their lying and feeling like crying.


(Ahem): "Hey, assholes? We said NO!"


It doesn't matter anyway:

Anything they announce is just to gauge, defuse and control public opinion.

They've already decided to do it.

They have everything in place to ensure the maximum efficiency with which press alliances sell it, politicians vote and speak about it, and "normal" people form opinions - and the middle-class-role-models-for-the-rest-of-the-plebes learn they're safely "normal" if they sit squarely in the middle of any criticism while avoiding any application of personal values or a sense of objective morality.

Or history.

Or memory.


Don't get all "political" now, that's not cool.


What's happening again?


Good people with good values fall into good habits.

You brush your teeth.

You shower and shave.

You go to work.

You read to your kids when you get home.

You kiss your wife or husband or partner.

You call your friends on their birthdays and help them in need.

You see your parents and relatives and maintain good family ties.

You are in an unquestionable routine of good actions with a few slip-ups.

Good for you.


Evil evolves.

Evil evolves faster.

Evil evolves faster to dominate.

Evil evolves faster to dominate good.

Evil evolves faster to dominate good people.

Bad for you.


They always do this.


Switching from terrorism to natural disasters too.



Still, this is the Mighty CNN...

So even had to fuck with 'em.


Bush military bird flu role slammed

CNN | October 5, 2005

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A call by President George W. Bush for Congress to give him the power to use the military in law enforcement roles in the event of a bird flu pandemic has been criticized as akin to introducing martial law.

Bush said aggressive action would be needed to prevent a potentially disastrous U.S. outbreak of the disease that is sweeping through Asian poultry and which experts fear could mutate to pass between humans.

Such a deadly event would raise difficult questions, such as how a quarantine might be enforced, the president said.

"I'm concerned about what an avian flu outbreak could mean for the United States and the world," he told reporters during a Rose Garden news conference on Tuesday.

"One option is the use of a military that's able to plan and move," he said. "So that's why I put it on the table. I think it's an important debate for Congress to have."

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 bans the military from participating in police-type activity on U.S. soil.

But Dr. Irwin Redlener, associate dean of Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and director of its National Center for Disaster Preparedness, told The Associated Press the president's suggestion was dangerous.

Giving the military a law enforcement role would be an "extraordinarily Draconian measure" that would be unnecessary if the nation had built the capability for rapid vaccine production, ensured a large supply of anti-virals like Tamiflu and not allowed the degradation of the public health system.

"The translation of this is martial law in the United States," Redlener said.

And Gene Healy, a senior editor at the conservative Cato Institute, said Bush would risk undermining "a fundamental principle of American law" by tinkering with the act, which does not hinder the military's ability to respond to a crisis.

"What it does is set a high bar for the use of federal troops in a policing role," he wrote in a commentary on the group's Web site. "That reflects America's traditional distrust of using standing armies to enforce order at home, a distrust that's well-justified."

Healy said soldiers are not trained as police officers, and putting them in a civilian law enforcement role "can result in serious collateral damage to American life and liberty."

People who catch the worst strain of avian flu can die of viral pneumonia and acute respiratory distress, according to

The disease has killed tens of millions of birds in Asia.

Last week, the U.N.'s health agency, the World Health Organization, sought to ease fears that the disease could kill as many as 150 million people worldwide.

"We're not going to know how lethal the next pandemic is going to be until the pandemic begins," WHO influenza spokesman Dick Thompson said, according to The Associated Press.

The consequences of an outbreak in the United States need to be addressed before catastrophe strikes, Bush said.

The president said he saw things differently than he did as governor of Texas. "I didn't want the president telling me how to be the commander in chief of the Texas Guard," he said.

"But Congress needs to take a look at circumstances that may need to vest the capacity of the president to move beyond that debate. And one such catastrophe or one such challenge could be an avian flu outbreak."

Should avian flu mutate and gain the ability to spread easily from human to human, world leaders and scientists would need rapid access to accurate information to be able to stem its spread, he said.

"We need to know, on a real-time basis, the facts, so the world's scientific community could analyze the facts," he said.

Bush said he had spoken to Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, about work towards a vaccine, but that means of prevention remained a distant hope.

"I take this issue very seriously," Bush said. "I'm not predicting an outbreak, but just suggesting to you we ought to be thinking about it, and we are."

Absent an effective vaccine, public health officials likely would try to stem the disease's spread by isolating people who had been exposed to it. Such a move could require the military, he said.

"I think the president ought to have all options on the table," Bush said, then corrected himself, "all assets on the table -- to be able to deal with something this significant."

Katrina lessons

Bush began discussing the possibility of changing the law banning the military from participating in police-type activity last month, in the aftermath of the government's sluggish response to civil unrest following Hurricane Katrina.

"I want there to be a robust discussion about the best way for the federal government, in certain extreme circumstances, to be able to rally assets for the good of the people," he told reporters September 26.

Last month, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Bush "wants to make sure that we learn the lessons from Hurricane Katrina," including the use of the military in "a severe, catastrophic-type event."

"The Department of Defense would assume the responsibility for the situation, and come in with an overwhelming amount of resources and assets, to help stabilize the situation," McClellan said.

The World Health Organization has reported 116 cases of avian flu in humans, all of them in Asia. More than half of them have been fatal, it said.

On Thursday, the Senate added $4 billion to a Pentagon spending bill to head off the threat of an outbreak of avian flu among humans. The bulk of the money -- $3 billion -- would be used to stockpile Tamiflu, an antiviral drug that has proved effective against the H5N1 virus -- the strain blamed for six deaths in Indonesia last week.

U.S. health agencies have about 2 million doses of Tamiflu, enough to treat about 1 percent of the population. The money added by the Senate would build that stockpile to cover about 50 percent of the population.

FEAR WORKS: "I kicked Free-Trade's ass a few blogs ago, I'll let Alex Jones at kick Peak-Oil's ass here..."



Sorry about that.

Scary eh?



If you got shook, you're a closed book.

If you just opened up and got exposed...

Now you're shutting down even more closed.


And really, as long as you're scared I can sell you anything.

I can sell you're fat, ugly, shy, stupid, poor, evil, scared, powerless, weird, lonely, crazy, geeky, nerdy, fragile, hopeless, useless...

And really, as long as you buy it you'll buy the cure.


In fact, that's how damn near everything is sold.


50 Cent said something brilliant recently, and the mofo wasn't even singing it.

He said, and I'm quoting "From Pieces to Weight", his new autobiography, that the business world has it completely backwards:

It should be "demand and supply" instead of "supply and demand".

And he's right.

We forget who we are when we don't decide what we want.


"If you don't know who you are,
How can your dreams come true?"

- 50 Cent, from 2Pac and 50 Cent, "The Realest Killaz"


This also works with respect to information...

I was at my man Mochappollo's place the other day, and me and his wimmenz was watching the local TV news. I don't do this very often (I haven't had a TV for a long-ass time), but I check in at friends places to see what's being sold to everybody else and how to kick it's ass, and of course, also to get my old "fix" of sweet-sweet-dumbass-goodness.

I won't front: the "news" scared the hell out of me.

Once it hit "5" awful two-minute stories in a row I was already feeling queasy, and then I started counting...

There were 12 in a row.

12 tragedies in a row.

12 headlines/bombings/killings/disasters/whatever in a row, before they moved on to a more detailed story on some other crap.

I was out of my mind, and looked at my friends:

They were sad, and they were numb.

I finally crack'd and revealed to my "suburban control group" that the "government" or local versions of the same were behind many of the bombings.

I didn't want to, but I just couldn't take it.

After a bit of disbelief, I asked: "Remember the London Bombings? When they shot that Brazilian guy who was NOT acting weird, NOT wearing a bulky jacket, NOT hopping turnstyles, NOT running, and NOT even Muslim?"

We established clearly that the "government" lies.

Now we need to establish that those who point it out don't.


And again, I felt bad for saying it...

But the way I figure...

If we're going to be messed up anyway...

It may as well be about the right stuff.


Alright, enough of me...


You can't get enough of me...

So here, my Free-Trade can o'whup-ass...


But hey, I'm just the opening act at this show...

And despite the fact that their and websites are being blocked by filters at libraries and by ISP's across America in a deliberate perversion of what those filters are supposed to do...

Please give a warm welcome to...

Peak Oil is a Corrupt Globalist Scam

Infowars Network | October 04 2005
By Steve Watson, Alex Jones & Paul Watson

They make the profits on creating artificial scarcity.

"Peak oil" is pure military-industrial-complex propaganda.

Publicly available CFR and Club of Rome strategy manuals from 30 years ago say that a global government needs to control the world population through neo-feudalism by creating artificial scarcity. Now that the social architects have de-industrialized the United States, they are going to blame our economic disintegration on lack of energy supplies.

Globalization is all about consolidation. Now that the world economy has become so centralized through the Globalists operations, they are going to continue to consolidate and blame it on the West's "evil" overconsumption of fossil fuels, while at the same time blocking the development and integration of renewable clean technologies.

In other words, Peak oil is a scam to create artificial scarcity and drive prices up. Meanwhile, alternative fuel technologies which have been around for decades are intentionally suppressed.

This year in particular we have seen a strong hike in oil prices and are being told to simply get used to it because this is the way it is going to be. In the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita gas prices have shot up amid claims of vast energy shortages. Americans are being asked to turn off lights, change thermostat settings, drive slower, insulate homes and take other steps. Meanwhile the oil companies continue to make record profits.

Even The New York Times pointed out that the recent "energy crisis" seems to be purely tactical:

"To Mr. Bush's critics, the call for conservation smacked of showmanship, or of shutting the garage door after the S.U.V. had been stolen. After all, the president has spent the past weeks dropping into the hurricane region from the fuel-guzzling Air Force One, which the Air Force estimates costs $40,000 an hour to fly."

Flying in the face of the so called peak oil crisis are the facts. If we are running out of oil so quickly then why are reserves being continually increased and production skyrocketing?

in the 1980s OPEC decided to switch to a quota production system based on the size of reserves. The larger the reserves a country said it had the more it could pump.

Earlier this year Saudi Arabia reportedly increased its crude reserves by around 200 billion barrels. Saudi Oil Is Secure and Plentiful, Say Officials.

“These huge reserves enable the Kingdom to remain a major oil producer for between 70 and 100 years, even if it raises its production capacity to 15 million barrels per day, which may well happen during the next 15 years,”

Is this the normal course of behaviour if we are currently at the peak for oil production? The answer is no, it's the normal course of action for increasing production.

There have also been reports that Russia has vastly increased its reserves even beyond those of Saudi Arabia. Why would they do this if they believed there would be no more oil to get hold of? It seems clear that Russia is ready for unlimited future production of oil.

There is a clear contradiction between the peak oil theory and the continual increase in oil reserves and production.

New untapped oil sources are being discovered everywhere on earth. The notion that there are somehow only a few sources that the West is trying to monopolize is a complete myth, promulgated by those raking in the massive profits. After all how do you make huge profits from something available in abundance?

A Wall Street Journal Article by Peter Huber and Mark Mills describes how the price of oil remains high because the cost of oil remains so low. We are not dependent on the middle east for oil because the world's supplies are diminishing, it is because it is more profitable to tap middle east supplies. Thus the myth of peak oil is needed in order to silence the call for tapping the planet's other plentiful reserves.

Richard Branson has even stated his intention to set up his own refinery because the price of oil is artificially being kept high whilst new sources are not being explored and new refineries not being built.

"Opec is effectively an illegal cartel that can meet happily, nobody takes them to court," Branson has said. "They collude to keep prices high."

So if more refineries were built and different resources tapped, the oil prices would come down and the illegal cartel OPEC would see profits diminish. It is no wonder then that the argument for peak oil is so appealing to OPEC. If no one invests to build refineries because they don't believe there is enough oil, then who benefits? OPEC and the oil elites of course.

It seems that every time there is some kind of energy crisis, OPEC INCREASES production. The remarkable thing about this is that they always state that they are doing it to ease prices, yet prices always shoot up because they promulgate the myth that they are putting some of their last reserves into the market. Analysts seem confused and always state that they don't believe upping production will cut prices.

In a recent report the International Monetary Fund projected that global demand for oil by 2030 would reach 139 million barrels a day, a 65 percent increase.

"We should expect to live with high and volatile oil prices," said Raghuram Rajan, the IMF's chief economist. "In short, it's going to be a rocky road going forward."

Yet independent analysts and even some within OPEC seem to believe that the demand for oil is diminishing. Why the contradiction?

The peak oil and demand myth is peddled by the establishment-run fake left activist groups, OPEC and globalist arms such as the IMF.

Rolling Stone magazine even carried an article in its April issue heavily biased towards making people believe the peak oil lie.

The Scientific evidence also flies in the face of the peak oil theory. Scientific research dating back over a hundred years, more recently updated in a Scientific Paper Published In 'Energia' suggests that oil is abiotic, not the product of long decayed biological matter. Oil, for better or for worse, is not a non-renewable resource. It, like coal, and natural gas, replenishes from sources within the mantle of earth.

No coincidence then that the Russians, who pioneered this research have pumped expenditure into deep underground oil excavation.

We have previously scientifically exposed the scam behind peak oil. Here is a 1 hour+ audio clip featuring Alex Jones' comments on peak oil and then the analysis of respected scientific commentator Dr. Nick Begich who presents evidence to suggest the idea of Peak oil is artificial.

A dangerous fallout precedent being set is that people on both the left and right believe wars are being fought in order to tap the last reserves of oil on the planet. The "coalition of the willing", whoever they may be for any given war, will not pay particular attention to refuting this claim because it allows them a reason to start and continue said war.

Even though many will see it as immoral, many will subconsciously attach it as a reason for the war. In reality the war is purely for profit, power and control, oil can be a part of that, but only if the peak oil claim is upheld.

If we continue to let the corrupt elite tell us we are wholly dependent on oil, we may reach a twisted situation whereby they can justify starvation and mass global poverty, perhaps even depopulation, even within the western world due to the fact that our energy supplies are finished.

Peak oil is just another weapon the globalists have in their arsenal to move towards a new world order where the elite get richer and everyone else falls into line

Conan to Turn Entire Show Over to U2

Tue Oct 4, 5:47 PM ET

NEW YORK - In his 12 years in charge of booking musical guests on Conan O'Brien's "Late Night," Jim Pitt always listed U2 and Johnny Cash as the dream artists he'd tried but never succeeded in getting.

He lost his chance with the late Cash, but the U2 dream is coming true Thursday in a major way.

O'Brien will turn over his entire show to the band, which is in New York for seven sold-out engagements at Madison Square Garden.

"We were able to offer them something to feel enough like an event for them to do the show," Pitt said. "It's basically `Late Night with Conan O'Brien,' the U2 edition."

The NBC show has never before devoted itself entirely to a musical guest, although it gave major time a few years back to a holiday appearance by bandleader Max Weinberg's other employer, Bruce Springsteen.

O'Brien's a big U2 fan, and made a personal connection by talking at length with Bono during breaks in rehearsals for the band's "Saturday Night Live" appearance last season, Pitt said.

It may be a nervous time for Bono, who is nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in trying to ease Third World poverty. People who watch the Nobel closely list the lead singer as one of the favorites. The winner is expected to be named Friday.

The band is expected to perform three songs and be interviewed by O'Brien.

Pitt is not pushing for any material in particular.

"When U2 decides they want to come on the show for an hour, you don't get too picky about what they play," he said.

You know...

The military is a funny animal...

And God love 'em, 'cause I don't.

I know, I know...

That's not nice.


Isn't it bizarre how we look at them?

I mean, considering the job.

Take poor uneducated ghetto children, put them in a highly structured and yet extremely aggressive environment, focus on discipline over education, abuse them, yell at them, destroy their individual personalities, grossly underpay them, and then order them to go somewhere far away to kill strange people for what inevitably turns out to be a bad reason.

Sounds dumbass to me.

And yet...

We glorify and celebrate them in terms that make all this seem inherently noble, like rich snobs sending the poor to fight illegal wars against people they never try to understand or negotiate with first is an honorable thing to do.

There's a lot more to this, but let's leave it for a minute.

Why we think this way is far more interesting:

They have great PR.

To sell this fantasy they'd have to, and for us to buy it we'd have to be completely brainwashed or completely insane.

It's probably both.


Either way, since their inception they've been up to at least as much no-good as good, and more often than not, the no-good is really, really, really bad.

Judging their actions from the position of any perceived natural inherent nobility is a consistently huge mistake we've made for years, and people far smarter and more knowledgeable than me have said the same a thousand times.

The (in)famous "Right to Bear Arms" we repeat-to-argue from the Bill of Rights amending the U.S. Constitution, is an unfinished (butchered really) sentence, a tragedy of conspiratorial willful incompetency that cannot be overlooked considering how easy it would be for any person or organization to just clearly say what it really is.

And what it really says is...

Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.




Why is my bark-eatin' tree-huggin' granola-gropin' flannel-fondling no-goodnik do-gooder peacenik-ass both PRO-GUN and ANTI-WAR???


I'll let a couple of O.G.'s answer that one for me...

In an age lacking objective morality and rapidly losing any sense of humor or irony along with it, and because everyone wants everything "balanced" to ensure they have two equal sides to ensure they can politely do and feel nothing by safely taking a neutral position, I present for your professorial purview the two opposite sides of the argument:

"GOOD" and "EVIL".


Quotes on the Right to Bear Arms

"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."

-- Mohandas Gandhi, An Autobiography, pg 446

"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so."

-- Adolph Hitler, April 11 1942

Bush Cites Military Takeover In Case Of Flu Outbreak

Paul Joseph Watson | October 4 2005

During this afternoon's White House press conference President Bush confirmed that he would attempt to impose military curfews and quarantines in case of a flu pandemic occurring in the United States.

The comes on the heels of a majority of the nation's governors rejecting the Bush administration's proposal to use active-duty military assets in providing disaster relief. Understanding this in the context of Hurricane Katrina, this means total gun confiscation and enforced evacuation at gunpoint.

Bush stated, "If we had an outbreak somewhere in the United States, do we not then quarantine that part of the country, and how do you then enforce a quarantine? When -- it's one thing to shut down airplanes; it's another thing to prevent people from coming in to get exposed to the avian flu. And who best to be able to effect a quarantine? One option is the use of a military that's able to plan and move."


This is the same justification that Bush used throughout the Hurricane Katrina debacle. The crisis was made worse by intentional federal sabotage of the relief efforts that were being conducted by the local government in New Orleans. FEMA were cutting communication lines and denying food, water and oil shipments to the critically affected areas. This led local Sheriffs to set up armed patrols to keep FEMA out of their county zones.

The elimination of Posse Comitatus via natural disasters which are then intentionally sabotaged by government, is one of the Bush administration's major goals. Bush has openly announced his plan to have the Pentagon usurp power over State's rights.

Posse Comitatus allows for the use of the military for relief efforts only, not for law enforcement. This is why Bush is trying to eliminate the 1878 law, because his ideal of military involvement in crises is one of quarantines, checkpoints, mandatory vaccinations, curfews and evacuations, and not of providing relief or infrastructure protection.

We have been warning for years that natural disasters would be used as a means of placing active duty military on the streets of America. People are not buying into the scam that we need a police state to fight Al-CIAda terrorists so this is the next step. Today it's hurricanes, in five to ten years it will be the threat of asteroids and meteors.

The message is the same, you have no right to protect yourself and we will confiscate your firearms if you even try. The truth is that throughout history government has never been able to adequately protect the people and to forcefully take that mantle only makes matters worse.

Is the threat of a bird flu pandemic a red flag or is it simply a means of creating a false scarcity so that everyone runs out and buys the antidote fearing an imminent outbreak?

We should be wise to remember that the revelation that the Bush cabinet was on Cipro, the anthrax fighting antibiotic, only emerged in the media after the anthrax attack was in process, not before.

Therefore it seems more likely that this is a ruse to line the pockets of the government affiliated pharmaceutical companies.

One thing is clear, if this outbreak did occur then the justification to suspend Constitutional rights will be flaunted to its maximum exposure. Back in April President Bush added pandemic influenza to the list of diseases for which quarantine is authorized.

China's zealous martial law tactics in dealing with SARS, home detention, curfews, mandatory vaccinations, restriction of travel, are the model for what could unfold in the US.

The federal blueprint for the exact same scenario was released and picked up by the Associated Press a year ago.

This will make ID cards and airport security checks look like a tea party.

And when this flu pandemic happens who will we blame? Surely not US scientists playing around with the deadly 1918 Spanish flu virus at "less than the maximum level of containment" according to the New Scientist magazine.

Bush's comments are clearly intended to acclimatize people to accept martial law in times of crisis caused by natural disasters or health pandemics.

With two more major hurricanes predicted to hit in October we should all remain vigilant and speak out against the government hijacking crises in order to implement their jack-booted police state agenda

Dogs used as shark bait

The Sun | October 3, 2005


We've been aware of this cruel amusement practiced by the Elite for some time. We've even been so unfortunate as to witness something like this take place off the coast of Texas. They want to catch a Great White or a Tiger Shark while on their yachts so they use live animals for bait and get an extra bit of twisted pleasure from taking the life of another helpless creature. Its totally sick the way these malevolent monsters get their kicks.

STRAY dogs are being skewered on hooks and dragged behind boats as live shark bait, The Sun can shockingly reveal.

The cruel practice takes place on French-controlled Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, where Prince William spent two holidays.

A six-month-old labrador pup was recently found ALIVE with a huge double hook through its snout - like the dog above - and another through a leg.

The pup was found in a coastal creek and is thought to have somehow freed itself from a fishing line.

But other dogs and kittens have been chomped up and swallowed by sharks.

The RSPCA plans to petition the French government, demanding an end to the hideous torture.

Torture of Iraqis was for ‘stress relief’, say US soldiers

Sunday Herald | October 3 2005
By Neil Mackay

FOR the first time, American soldiers who personally tortured Iraqi prisoners have come forward to give testimony to human rights organisations about crimes they comm itted.

Three soldiers – a captain and two sergeants – from the 82nd Airborne Division stationed at Forward Operating Base (FOB) Mercury near Fallujah in Iraq have told Human Rights Watch how prisoners were tortured both as a form of stress relief and as a way of breaking them for interrogation sessions.

These latest revelations about the torture of Iraqi detainees come at a time when the Bush administration thought it could draw a line under the scandal of Abu Ghraib following last week’s imprisonment of Private Lynndie England for her now infamous role in the abuse of prisoners and the photographing of torture.

The 82nd Airborne soldiers at FOB Mercury earned the nickname “The Murderous Maniacs” from local Iraqis and took the moniker as a badge of honour.

The soldiers referred to their Iraqi captives as PUCs – persons under control – and used the expressions “f***ing a PUC” and “smoking a PUC” to refer respectively to torture and forced physical exertion.

One sergeant provided graphic descriptions to Human Rights Watch investigators about acts of abuse carried out both by himself and others. He now says he regrets his actions. His regiment arrived at FOB Mercury in August 2003. He said: “ The first interrogation that I observed was the first time I saw a PUC pushed to the brink of a stroke or a heart attack. At first I was surprised, like, ‘This is what we are allowed to do?’”

The troops would put sand-bags on prisoners’ heads and cuff them with plastic zip-ties. The sergeant, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said if he was told that prisoners had been found with homemade bombs, “we would f*** them up, put them in stress positions and put them in a tent and withhold water … It was like a game. You know, how far could you make this guy go before he passes out or just collapses on you?”

He explained: “To ‘f*** a PUC’ means to beat him up. We would give them blows to the head, chest, legs and stomach, pull them down, kick dirt on them. This happened every day. To ‘smoke’ someone is to put them in stress positions until they get muscle fatigue and pass out. That happened every day.

“Some days we would just get bored so we would have everyone sit in a corner and then make them get in a pyramid. We did that for amusement.”

Iraqis were “smoked” for up to 12 hours. That would entail being made to hold five-gallon water cans in both hands with out-stretched arms, made to do press-ups and star jumps. At no time, during these sessions, would they get water or food apart from dry biscuits. Sleep deprivation was also “a really big thing”, the sergeant added.

To prepare a prisoner for interrogation, military intelligence officers ordered that the Iraqis be deprived of sleep. The sergeant said he and other soldiers did this by “banging on their cages, crashing them into the cages, kicking them, kicking dirt, yelling”.

They’d also pour cold water over prisoners and then cover them in sand and mud. On some occasions, prisoners were tortured for revenge. “If we were on patrol and caught a guy that killed our captain or my buddy last week … man, it is human nature,” said the sergeant – but on other occasions, he confessed, it was for “sport”.

Many prisoners were completely innocent and had no part in the insurgency, he said – but intelligence officers had told soldiers to exhaust the prisoners to make them co-operate. He said he now knew their behaviour was “wrong”, but added “this was the norm”. “Trends were accepted. Leadership failed to provide clear guidance so we just developed it. They wanted intel [intelligence]. As long as no PUC came up dead, it happened. ”

According to Captain Ian Fishback of the 82nd Airborne Division, army doctrine had been broken by allowing Iraqis who were captured by them to remain in their custody, instead of being sent “behind the lines” to trained military police.

Pictures of abuse at FOB Mercury were destroyed by soldiers after the scandal of Abu Ghraib broke.

However, Fishback told his company commander about the abuse and was told “remember the honour of the unit is at stake” and “don’t expect me to go to bat for you on this issue if you take this up”. Fishback then told his battalion commander who advised him to speak to the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) office, which deals with issues of military law.

The JAG told Fishback that the Geneva Conventions “are a grey area”. When Fishback described some of the abuses he had witnessed the JAG said it was “within” Geneva Conventions.

Fishback added: “ If I go to JAG and JAG cannot give me clear guidance about what I should stop and what I should allow to happen, how is an NCO or a private expected to act appropriately?”

Fishback, a West Point graduate who has served in both Afghanistan and Iraq, spent 17 months trying to raise the matter with his superiors. When he attempted to approach representatives of US Senators John McCain and John Warner about the abuse, he was told that he would not be granted a pass to meet them on his day off.

Fishback says that army investigators were currently more interested in finding out the identity of the other soldiers who spoke to Human Rights Watch than dealing with the systemic abuse of Iraqi prisoners.

Colonel Joseph Curtin, a senior army spokesman at the Pentagon, said: “We do take the captain seriously and are following up on this.”

Fishback has now been removed from special forces training because of the army investigation

I believe that children are the present.

It's Sunday morning, why did they run the story: "Bush Still Considering High Court Vacancy"

Because it's a freebie for Charlie and Cherie Churchie?

Because it's a cool photo-op to catch the sun-dappled Royal Family?

Because even though he said nothing he gets to look like he's thinking?

Because when they choose Alberto "Geneva Conventions? Shmeneva Conventions!" Gonzales to join like-minded John "Torture? Of course sir!" Roberts on the Supreme Court, it will look like he deliberated on it for some time despite the fact that this article offers no proof since he didn't even stop to say a damned thing to anybody? And because this type of faux-journalism by the neutral Associated Press does nothing but kiss Reich House ass in a way that will ensure they get more "access" to key Nazi political figures than other "mainstream" or "liberal" media outlets who get shut out in favor of Fox?

Because us Karl Rovebots don't know any better, and now assume this is "news"?

Bush Still Considering High Court Vacancy

By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer 16 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - President Bush is still working on his decision to pick a successor to retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, his chief of staff said Sunday.

The president is "still considering lots of options," Andy Card said at the White House. Asked whether the announcement would be made on Sunday, Card replied, "Doesn't have to be today."

As Bush returned from Camp David on Sunday morning, he declined to answer a reporter's question about whether he had settled on a candidate for the high court. The president smiled and waved to the press corps as he got off Marine One and strolled across the South Lawn with Laura Bush, but did not say a word.

Bush then planned to attend a worship service for members of the legal profession. Several members of the Supreme Court were expected to attend the service, known as the Red Mass, at a church a few blocks from the White House.

On Monday, Bush was going to the Supreme Court for the formal ceremony at which John Roberts assumes the role of chief justice. Roberts was confirmed by the Senate and sworn in at the White House on Thursday to succeed the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist.

The court's 2005-2006 term gets under way Monday.
