JAMES BLUNT: "And I see, no bravery, no bravery, in your eyes, anymore, only sadness...." (VIDEO)





There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
Tears drying on their face.
He has been here.

Brothers lie in shallow graves.
Fathers lost without a trace.
A nation blind to their disgrace,
Since he's been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery, in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery, in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

Houses burnt beyond repair.
The smell of death is in the air.
A woman weeping in despair says,
He has been here.

Tracer lighting up the sky.
It's another families' turn to die.
A child afraid to even cry out says,
He has been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery, in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery, in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
But no one asks the question why,
He has been here.

Old men kneel to accept their fate.
Wives and daughters cut and raped.
A generation drenched in hate.
Says, he has been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery, in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery, in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.


- James Blunt, "No Bravery"







To see an awesome video for this song, go to:

http://www.archive.org/details/911theRoadtoTyranny


It starts up as soon as you hit the site and has been bouncing around my mind for the last few days, just brilliant.


(...)


Also, since we're on the subject of being strong enough and brave enough to save the world, I thought I'd offer a tip.

A key to self-actualization is understanding, and defeating confusion by learning why the world is screwed up can actually help you make peace with it, and peace with your place in it.

Seriously.

It's not that "God" wants it this way, any more than He wants you to lose an eyeball if I stab you in the eye with a fork.

Let's not test His love for you by going through with this experiment.


(...)


It's not that anyone wants the world this way save for the select few who profit off it, and that's all it ever is. Being that evil for that little may sound cheap, but it's not, and we all know what we are - we're just haggling over the price.

The key to understanding a crime - like the state of the world today, is seeing who has the motive, means and opportunity to commit it, and once that's ascertained you can narrow the list of suspects. There may be supporting players including those who are relatively ignorant of their role in actively or passively endorsing a crime, but the major players can easily be identified by a simple phrase:

"Qui bono?"

"Who profits?"


Once that's been figured out - or more accurately, who profits "the most", then you have your answer.

And, once we realize that criminals have been using basically the same tactics for centuries, we can see what's still being used today.


(...)


I've evolved my thinking down the same path all of us will travel if we look into it, for all understanding amounts to is looking deeper into something. In this case, that also means looking higher up the food chain of power, and understanding who's behind the biggest decisions in the world that affect the most people.

Unfortunately we live in a world that's unconscionably prejudiced, and yet, we can also see thousands of examples of supposedly stereotypical enemies living in peace and harmony.

Since that's been proven, when arguing it's always wise to look above the fray and see who put you in the position to be arguing in the first place. If anything in your life is bothering you then you're not living the life you want, and therefore should learn to understand why you're living the life you do.

In the film "Orwell Rolls in his Grave", Congressman Bernie Ebbers notes that the average American is working longer hours for less wages than they did 25 years ago - "and has absolutely no idea why!"

The film came out around the 2004 election and got great reviews as a brilliant deconstruction of just how controlled the mainstream media is, and yet unlike "Fahrenheit 9/11" it was predictably buried by... the media.


Fortunately you can see it online for free, and visit the DVD website too:

It's part and parcel of a larger puzzle, and crucial pieces are below.

My views have changed but I remain the same, and the thinking below shows how I've come to grips with what we all need to come to grips with: if it's half as bad as we think it is then it's twice as bad as it should be, and that's reason enough to proudly proclaim enough is enough.

Reviewer: Black Krishna - 5 out of 5 stars - July 15, 2005

Subject: Questions need answers, don't they?


I think that's Alex Jones ideal function: he's the best at asking questions that - if answered, could either make him look like a moron, or make the world a much better place.

Sold.

I don't think I have to believe in what anyone says 100%, heck "religious" people bend the rules when they want so this binary "believer/non-believer" in "conspiracy theory" b.s. doesn't work on me.

I say let him ask away, and qualitatively, his evidence and analysis are exceptional; his conclusions are insane.

Makes no sense?

Exactly.

I love the dark side of history he brings to it, and the idea that what he's saying is "not" possible is also really strange considering what we most of us know about crimes of the 20th century. The idea that he's even half right is scary, but I guess so is being unsure. He goes on about "New World Order" a bit more than he can justify here, but he does put a lot of pieces of some sort of puzzle in front of us, and that's enough to suggest we should finish it.

The Oklahoma stuff really got me, as his use of a bunch of "mainstream sources" paradoxically built up an incredible cover-up story. While the 9/11 stuff is great, we can see the corporatization of the media shrank the number of sources he counts on to goof up and say something that contradicts the official story. This also includes his latest take on "7/7", or The London Bombings - which I recommend checking for balance since everyone else seems to be racing for conclusions and solutions. The "alternative/indie/liberal" media is now both much more popular and much more clearly marginalized and discredited by the mainstream, which makes all this stuff more important than ever.

Remeber Fahrenheit 9/11?

Exactly.

I like some of his stuff, and even as just entertainment this is fast-paced and a hell of a ride. In fact, I bet if more people in the world watched it we'd ask more good questions that would make the world better - props to the nearly 10,000 who have downloaded it so far.

A stretch?

Nope.

This ain't a "Left/Conspiracy" position, it's just a logical democractic one: "Hey Right/Government, why don't YOU tell us why this guy is wrong or crazy so we can chill out?"

FYI...

Some lighter fare that stuck in my head includes:

Jon Stewart on the Presidential Election, the Media, and Politics

http://www.c-span.org/Search/basic.asp?BasicQueryText=jon+stewart&SortBy=date

Some darker fare that stuck in my head includes:

Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh spills the secrets of the Iraq quagmire and the war on terror

http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2004/10/11_hersh.shtml

They prove the media's full of crap and the government is full of crap, and combined with 911: the Road to Tyranny and lots of other stuff it adds up to something...

Peace, (NOW!!!)
BK

[Ed note: for some reason this page keeps going down, though they may just be adding some details like they added the Flash video for the James Blunt "No Bravery" song to the previous film's page. No worries, "Martial Law 9/11: Rise of the Police State" is the best film in the world for understanding what's happening, it's also pretty entertaining while poppin' off all over the 'net anyway - so Google it. Just for fun I decided to flip the throwback script below, there's a whole convo that followed too...]

Amnesty Intellectual: The 9/11 Cover-Up - 600 Smoking Guns

whassup y'all,

i wrote this a couple of days ago and apologize if i'm preaching to the converted, but i'm trying to provide rhetorical and analytical weapons for others to use and legitimize eveyone fighting fascism as having something to contribute.

if you really look deep into it (as i have across the board for a minute now) stuff's getting too crazy, "they" are moving fast and completely confident in getting us to agree to anything (NY subway searches?), and denying it ain't helping... :eek

el tigre - i love that einstein quote, it prompted me to post this here...

enjoy as you'd like,

Peace, (NOW!!!)
BK

Amnesty Intellectual: The 9/11 Cover-Up - Alex Jones Presents 600 Smoking Guns...


I think most of us believe the (unbelievably) comfortable orthodox safe liberal position: the U.S. government had some "prior knowledge" of the 9/11 tragedy.

(...)

Released: August 30, 2004

Half of New Yorkers Believe US Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9-11 Attacks and “Consciously Failed” To Act; 66% Call For New Probe of Unanswered Questions by Congress or New York’s Attorney General, New Zogby International Poll Reveals.

SOURCE - www.zogby.com/search/ReadNews.dbm?ID=855

(...)

And... that's that.

We can easily fill in the blanks ourselves, justifying the colossal incompetence of a clearly "slow" President and his cronies, and thus the inevitable creation of a "post-9/11 world".

(Isn't it fun? "It's A Small World After All!")

Or, we can see the cover-up as cover-story for the rest of their evil deeds, and future wars with Iran, Syria, and whomever else the military-industrial complex decides to feed on next in the "War on Terror".

And it isn't just overseas, even if you don't give a crap and believe in America's "manifest destiny" to rule the world, they're moving so fast that they're already attacking us domestically. Thousands of initiatives used to change society into a police-state using George Orwell's "1984" as an operations manual: surveillance cameras, domestic military operations, indefinite detentions...

"In 2003, 6.9 million people were on probation, in jail or prison, or on parole at yearend 2003 -- 3.2% of all U.S. adult residents or 1 in every 32 adults."

SOURCE - www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/correct.htm

(...)

So: "But... what can we do?" is a common question.

But really, it's a sad, strange and illogical question.

Most times if you know there is a huge problem directly affecting you, barring an available quick-fix you still have the confidence to come up with a solution or investigate possibilities.

If you had termites, you might not know a damn thing about termites, but instead of succumbing to intellectual paralysis you'd simply look into it until you found a satisfactory remedy.

It's sad to see that on too many matters like this, one has to provide the Platonic ideal answer to convince others to recognize the challenge is worthwhile.

What kind of challenge is that?

Your "termite remedy" may not necessarily work for me, nor mine for you.

(...)

We need to create a filter to understand that everything they've said for the last 5 years has been a lie, and everything they say going forward is.

As a first-step: it's that simple.

Even a casual viewing of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will tell you: they're habitual liars, and this is a brutal character indictment.

Those lies are then increasingly echoed and debated as truth everywhere else, with very "conservative" arguments for both sides of the Left/Right dichotomy. The "liberal media" doesn't allow Professors or peace activists on anymore, so you can see the "liberal bias" ain't exactly "biased enough" to be "fair and balanced", and the rare mainstream stories one could dig for are getting rarer and getting buried.

If my favourite sports team stops playing hard: I stop watching them.

If my favourite mainstream stops trying hard: I stop watching them.

The monolithic neo-con strategy is simple: agree on a set of first principles that aren't based on facts, and then repeat them until they become true - changing the world.

They are also classifying "125 documents per minute" (NY Times), while simultaneously raising the bar on "proof" to levels impossible to reach without the resources and reach of the government and mainstream media. This makes alternative views neglible in a "normal" world, and destroys old evidence of others - changing history.

(You can expect the information here to disappear sooner than later.)

Still, there is an artificially safe liberal position, as those who don't subscribe to partisan "liberal" ideology and yet also don't "drink the Right-Wing Kool-Aid" usually grade them on a simple curve:

"Well... if they said this, it probably means this, and that's really bad, therefore I'm smart enough to tell exactly how much they're lying."

As if we know.

As if we shouldn't trust those telling us otherwise, those playing through the pain of marginalization and ridicule to desperately tell us we're sliding off a cliff with "the most secretive administration in history" at the wheel.

I think they ALL deserve to be judged on how long they've stayed with it.

I think they ALL deserve the benefit of the doubt when we've see the lies.

I think they ALL show belief and disbelief require an equal measure of proof.

(...)

So...

You have controversial culpability theorist Alex Jones.

He's been doing this for 8 years.

He's had hundreds of credible guests on his shows.

His evidence is incredible.

His conclusions are insane.

If anything he says is right...

We're in trouble.

If anything he says is wrong...

It doesn't mean the rest is.

(...)

That's how they get us: they pick ONE thing that is either wrong or disputable, and use that to discredit the rest or the individual saying it.

We do the same: if we can't believe it, then it can't be true.

If we did this with our friends: we wouldn't have any.

If we did this with our family: we'd piss them off.

If we had to agree 100% with everybody we trusted: we wouldn't trust anybody.

(...)

This only works well on the truly marginalized Left, because our cynicism is only tempered by our worship of power.

So, power can be wrong repeatedly - like the revelations of mass-media laziness and willful incompetence seen in Fahrenheit 9/11; and then comfortably use it's inherent elevated status to get our attention once again - like our trust in the mass-media after the revelations in Fahrenheit 9/11, none of which have been followed up.

So, power is the lazy default of the masses, and the fake nihilism of "the right to have my own opinion" takes precedence over improving on it by adding facts and analysis. Intellectual discourse is prevented as even the most astute and polite challenges are dismissed as "rude", a common set of "facts" is unavailable for debate, and we're all weakened by agreeing to this flawed fascist paradigm.

I don't have to respect your opinion until I hear it, and if it's crap, I'll say it.

Please do the same for mine, if I'm wrong about something I'd prefer to stop saying it.

During the last election it became rude to politically disagree without automatically being branded as a member of "the other side", and thus a party to a set of views seen as inherently biased. This allowed the most uninformed partisan blowhards the "right" to their point of view - and credibility based on the inherent value of having a "strong" opinion as opposed to an "educated" one. The middle was steam-rolled into believing both sides were equally biased and uninformed, while one side was simply "playing the game" better (like on "Survivor").

This tragedy made us too dumb to understand that while both sides are covered in mud, one side was using a bulldozer. Their extreme views succeeded in shifting an already ignorant center further away from the truth on the Left, and from examining any substantial evidence as an antidote for the thin confusing gruel served by the media.

When it comes to entertainment we are gladly convinced of the merit of new facts, gossip, and other tidbits; when it comes to politics the honesty of arguments is seen as inherently biased for partisan purposes. This "funhouse mirror of lies" the Right holds up cynically warps our view of the potential honesty of the Left, leaving a malleable truth more easily controlled by the powerful channels of the government and mass-media, who are in turn controlled by...

(More on this topic is coming in: "The Blueprint - Volume 1: Seeds - PART NINE: The Right To Screw You")

(...)

So, you can google "9/11 truth" and find thousands of people passionately researching the truth with a fraction of the $65 million budget used to investigate Bill Clinton's blowjob, and finding more than a shiny nickel's worth of evidence.

I have, and there's a hell of a lot out of questions there.

But I also really like Alex and his 600 smoking guns straight outta Texas, he's still around for a reason, and he makes it fun...

Peace, (NOW!!!)
BK

Link TV tackles democracy in America

LINK TV (DIRECTV ch. 375, Dish Network ch. 9410), available to 27 million American homes, will broadcast a four-hour special on the consequences of corporate media, the true meaning of “independent media” and the continued struggle for democracy as the country begins to gear up for the 2008 presidential election on Sunday, June 25 and Friday, July 7 at 5 p.m. PST and 8 p.m. EST.

The special, “Democracy for Sale?” will feature the critically acclaimed film “Counting on Democracy,” which investigates charges of disenfranchisement and the 180,000 uncounted Florida votes cast largely by the working poor and people of color during the 2000 election. It takes viewers on a political and social rollercoaster — from election night to 36 days later when the Supreme Court made the highly controversial decision to halt the recount and call the election for George W. Bush. Guest Greg Palast, who has been hailed “the most important investigative reporter of our time” and is the author of the recently released “Armed Madhouse,” will be on hand to discuss his groundbreaking BBC investigation into the 2000 election scandal and why the BBC was the only media outlet to broadcast it.

Activist Megan Matson, founder of the action group Mainstreet Moms, will address creating a system where people who care about election fraud, dirty politics and the disfranchisement of select groups of the population can band together and force change. Matson, who appeared in Mary Beth Brangan’s short film “Got Democracy?,” also touches on the dangers of electronic voting and what ordinary citizens can do to help preserve democracy for future generations.

The special will also feature a screening of director Robert Kane Pappas’ “Orwell Rolls in his Grave,” which provides an examination of modern media and its impact on our political culture, asking whether America has entered an Orwellian world of doublespeak where outright lies can pass for the truth. Pacifica Radio’s “Democracy Now!” host Amy Goodman will join via satellite to discuss the state of election reform.

Learn why you should care about the state of Democracy in the U.S. by tuning in.
