Hmph. 14 songs were downloaded yesterday. Very cool... and thanks! I guess y'all didn't know you could, but since you do now - go for it! :-)

Now that was a pleasant surprise, especially since while it spikes up and down, on average I usually only get a song or two downloaded a day.


Maybe it's because I wrote:

Incidentally, I usually have a song or two downloaded per day for free off my music site, but oddly enough, that evening 4 copies of my song "Angelina Jolie" were downloaded, as well as a copy of "Why Can't I Find Aishwarya Rai?" That was kind of neat and a nifty coincidence, but they're also - as a doom-and-gloom prophet - two of my funnest songs, so if you want to check them out and grab copies, go to:

Back to Angie, sweet-sweet flawless Angie.


Hot damn, that woman can sell anything.

And hell - if she can sell my 'ish, then mebbe, just mebbe, j-ust mebbe, she can sell all of us on the idea of Saving The World...

booyakashaa!!! :P


Test blog: man, I really love what I just wrote, and I hope this pops it up...

So yeah.

Scientific Analysis Proves Towers Brought Down By Incendiaries

Steven Jones' analysis on WTC steel about to be released

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | June 20 2006

Scientific analysis on WTC steel debris undertaken by BYU Professor Steven Jones proves that the twin towers were demolished by means of incendiary devices and the release of the conclusive evidence is imminent.

The material that was first brought into question on the back of photos and video clips of the twin towers showing a dripping molten substance and floating white ash can now be confirmed as being thermate, combining thermite which is used as an incendiary device to bring down structures and sulfur, which cuts through steel quicker and leaves a yellow residue.

Pools of molten yellow metal were also found underneath both towers and Building 7 subsequent to the collapses.

"The evidence points directly to controlled demolition which means an inside job brought these World Trade Center buildings down," Jones told radio host Alex Jones in a video interview.

Jones says that, "using advanced techniques we're finding out what's in these samples - we're finding iron, sulphur, potassium and manganese - these are characteristic of a variation of thermite which is used to cut through steel very rapidly, it's called thermate."

"In order to have thermite in these buildings in this way, to help bring the buildings down, that means that thermite had to be planted in the buildings which of course implies directly and inside job - someone had to have access into the buildings," said Jones.

Jones' has conducted over 40 peer reviewed scientific studies two of which were published in Nature and Scientific American.

This facet of the 9/11 truth movement was first brought to light during a November 2005 appearance on The Alex Jones Show by Brigham Young University physicist Professor Steven Jones. Jones said that white phosphorous wasn't powerful enough to cause the implosion but that thermite was the likely culprit. Alex Jones's 2005 release Martial Law 9/11 Rise of the Police State highlighted the physical evidence that the towers and Building 7 were brought down with incendiary devices.

Jones stated that thermite was a "clever" choice because its ingredients, aluminum and iron oxide do not require identifying tags by law, meaning they couldn't be traced back to their manufacturers.

Watch the following video and observe how thermite completely melts a car engine in a matter of seconds, without the addition of sulphur, and also completely resists neutralization by liquid nitrogen. Notice how the dripping substance is identical to that seen in the south tower video.

The following video highlights the fact that steaming hot molten metal was still being found at the World Trade Center site six weeks after the attack.

Jones also, "cited video pictures showing white ash rising from the south tower near the dripping, liquefied metal. When thermite burns, Jones said, it releases aluminum-oxide ash. The presence of both yellow-white molten iron and aluminum oxide ash "are signature characteristics of a thermite reaction," he said."

American Free Press writer Christopher Bollyn discusses evidence of thermite used to sever the twin tower's steel support columns in the picture below.

"In this photo, for example, the column directly above the fireman's helmet shows that it was cut with thermite. There is a substantial amount of hardened molten iron which can be seen on both the inside and outside of the box column. This is precisely what one would expect to find on a column which had been cut with thermite," says Bollyn.

White flames consistent with how thermite reacts producing molten iron and aluminum oxide are also visible in this photograph at the corner of the 81st floor of the south tower.

The USGS Spectroscopy Lab produced images which showed dense thermal hot spots days and weeks after the attacks. ABC News reported that, "the temperature at the core of "the pile," is near 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, according to fire officials, who add that the fires are too deep for firefighters to get to."

The public release of Professor Jones' scientific analysis is imminent - watch this space for the story as soon as it breaks.

Dwayne Wade and Angeline Jolie are wikkid, and Jim Tucker's been following the Bilderbergers for 30 years: he has seen your past... and your future...

Props due to young Mr. Wade for leading the Miami Heat to their first NBA Championship in their 18 year franchise history, and getting Shaq and Alonzo their much coveted fourth and first rings respectively:

Bravo gents! :-)

I only saw Game 6 in it's entirety while catching snippets and highlights of the others, and I've gotta say - it seemed practically in the bag.

To wit: young Mr. Wade was by far the best player on the floor, a young man among boys, and it seemed to me he could get his numbers whenever the heck he wanted to. I was amazed at how effortlessly he creates enough space to do whatever he wanted, and basically saves energy for driving by shooting comfortable mid-range jumpers at will. He's kind of like Paul Pierce with way-way-more speed (hence the Shaqname: "Flash") and way-way-more hops.

I met him once a few months ago at an event where Shaq and a few other Heaters were making an appearance, and found myself absolutely star-struck by his presence: he was cool, calm, collected, nice, and chilled as all hell. That was weird for me, as I ain't usually into swingin' off the jocks of cats younger than me, but hey, I thought he was the best player in the NBA, and the NBA Finals proved it - "Yo, 'Melo and Bronnie, it's catching up time! :)

When we got a pic together, he coolly threw up a sideways peace sign in my direction, while all I could do was point to him with a goofy smile, essentially saying:

"Zoinks! Ohmigod! Ohmigod! Ohmigod! This is Dwayne Frikkin' Wade! I'm standing here taking a picture with DWAYNE FRIKKIN' WADE!!!"

And, as a lifelong NBA fan who wants to say "I Love This Game!", and hates the societally suicidal jaded cynicism that too often makes us freely crap on whatever whenever... well, frankly that was frikkin' wikkid.

Here, see?

I caught much of Angelina Jolie's 2 hour appearance on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" show the other night, she discussed "Her Mission and Motherhood", and I'm very, very, very impressed with what she's up to.

Incidentally, I usually have a song or two downloaded per day for free off my music site, but oddly enough, that evening 4 copies of my song "Angelina Jolie" were downloaded, as well as a copy of "Why Can't I Find Aishwarya Rai?" That was kind of neat and a nifty coincidence, but they're also - as a doom-and-gloom prophet - two of my funnest songs, so if you want to check them out and grab copies, go to:

Back to Angie, sweet-sweet flawless Angie.


She got more coverage of the plight of Africa on one show (with highlights repeated the next day too) than CNN's probably done all year, and she was calm and composed and compassionate and sincere and frikkin' gorgeous. And, once again, I'm in love. She's also hip to more than she knows, but she's carefully navigating the best possible solutions she can engineer based on the personality she's cultivated - kind of like Cher shilling for "helmet safety" of U.S. soldiers in Iraq - who gonna knock the hustle?

Celebs gotta be careful these days: they're often accused of not knowing what they're talking about, which is utter crap.

Most celebrities and their handlers know the flack they'll catch for speaking truth to power (and all of power's multitude of media enablers), and if you actually listen to what they say and look at what they do, you'll find that if they're speaking with a purpose then they've inevitably done their homework: whether you agree or disagree with their position or not.

The only time I can recall a celebrity being so completely off-base that their political statements were utterly ridiculous - though forgiveable in some ways for their spontaneity - was Britney Spears in "Fahrenheit 9/11", when she said:

"I think we should just trust our President."

And yet, surprise-surprise, almost no mainstream flack...

With the logical skills justifying "inaction" far more developed than the ones justifying "action" - hence all the "haters" innovators claim said they "couldn't do it" - she makes simple and elegant arguments completely obliterating our collective-conscious impotence, and betwixt her brains and her looks she's the Viagra of the Save The World Movement.

Worship her?

Hell yeah.

She's putting the entire "self-help" industry bitches and their shameless self-indulgence sales-pitches to shame, and helping us realize that masturbating to Oprah, Deepak Chopra, and/or Chanted Chakras isn't what we should be up to. Nor is it effective, hence the same sad souls approaching us every few weeks with their latest'n'greatest schemes for self-improvement.

When I walk into a house and see a bookshelf filled with "self-help" books, all I can think of is: wasn't any of them supposed to "work"?

F--k yo' stress levels.

F--k yo' rat race.

F--k you.

There's cats in Africa that would kill to do "life" in prison.

"Three meals a day AND a roof???"

"Wow... now that's life!!!"

And now, I cede the floor to Mr. Tucker.

He's been predicting the future for 30 years by prying into the inner-working of "The Money Masters" at The Bilderberg Group meetings, so if you want to know what they're up to - and it WILL affect every single human being on earth, read on MacDuff, read on...

FYI, if you want to see why I keep calling them "The Money Masters" in quotes, it's because I'm referring to a documentary on the history of money and who's presently in control of it. It's part of the collection of bomb-ass flickage on my music site's main page, and here's where you can find it...

* The Money Masters *

(The U.S. Federal Reserve is privately owned by a few big banks - which are in turn owned by a few old money families. Seriously. For example, it's in the phonebook's "white" pages and not the "blue" government pages. The whole central banking system is also one big lie, and the control and abuse of the planet's resources is managed by it. The history of fractional reserve banking is a joke in allowing banks to lie without recourse, and manipulate markets to engineer a crisis whenever they want. There's probably no gold left in Fort Knox either - they stopped doing their legally mandated audits years ago. Plus, plus, plus...)

Big Surprises at Bilderberg

James P. Tucker Jr / American Free Press | June 21 2006

Bilderberg expects interest rates to rise and many Americans to lose their homes in the months ahead. Meanwhile, they hope they can pressure President Bush to refrain from an all-out invasion of Iran while maintaining oil prices at their current record-high levels of about $70 a barrel.

Timothy Geithner, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, predicted rising interest rates and difficulties for families that have obtained adjustable rate mortgages, or “variable” interest rates. Many are likely to lose their homes as rising home mortgage rates add hundreds of dollars to their monthly payments, he said. While most listened solemnly and some expressed concern, one was heard to say, “stupid Americans deserve their fate.”

Many Americans, especially young families, have been buying expensive homes at low but “variable” interest rates. Others have been paying just the interest owed on their homes and not the principal. They are the most vulnerable, Geithner said. Some have paid little or nothing down. Some institutions “lend” buyers the down payment.

When home construction peaks and prices start downward, many will find they owe more on their home than it is worth in the marketplace. They will also find their mortgage—even “interest-only” payments—are unaffordable.

The banks will get the homes back and sell them again.

Again, the term “stupid Americans” was heard among clucks of sympathy or silent indifference. According to one source, no concern was expressed by Allan Hubbard, assistant to President Bush for economic policy.

European Bilderbergers said they would have no part in an invasion of Iran, something Bush says is an “option on the table.” Although NATO is helping by adding 9,000 troops in Afghanistan, expect no help if Iran is invaded, they said. “We will not help you fight a war for Israel,” one said.

Several noted that Israel has had nuclear weapons since at least 1963 and has never signed on to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, so no international inspections are conducted. It was the late George Ball, a charter member of Bilderberg who was No. 2 man in the State Department under presidents John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, who first revealed that Israel has nuclear weapons.

“Is it not reasonable that Iran would need such a deterrence against Israel?” an unidentified Bilderberger was heard saying. “If you invade Iran, Israel is your only ally and good luck.” One suggested that “surgical strikes”—but no land invasion—may be tolerated but others said they would be ineffective.

Listeners to this dialogue included Eival Gildy of Israel, head of “coordination and strategy in the office of the prime minister,” and Ziad Abu Amr, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, president of the Palestinian Council on Foreign Relations and professor of political science at Birzeit University. Ahmad Chalabi, former deputy prime minister of Iraq and one of the key sources of disinformation about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, was also present.

William Luti, special assistant to Bush for defense policy, and Richard Perle, former high Defense Department official and still a close adviser to Bush, responded that the United States is simply trying to stop the spread of nuclear weapons and make the world “safe.” But, said one European: “How ‘safe’ do you think the world will be if you invade Iran and Iran responds by firing missiles on your ally, Israel? Israel will nuke Iran in response and you will have your ‘proliferation.’”

Robert Zoellick, deputy secretary of state, said it would be necessary to keep the invasion “option” to pressure Iran into agreeing to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

“You’re wrong,” the European answered. “Iran simply refuses to be bullied by the United States. Save us a lot of trouble and forget about invading Iran.” The Americans remained silent.

Bilderberg’s mood was described as “uneasy” when it came to the issue of oil, a discussion followed closely by such oil-rich participants as banker David Rockefeller, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and Franco Bernabe, vice chairman of Rothschild Europe.

The “Latin American problem” mixed the issue of oil with Bilderberg’s scheme to expand NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere and have it evolve into an “American Union” patterned after the European Union. Hugo Chavez, head of Venezuela, is not only raising taxes on the extraction of oil from his country, he is trying to establish a trade coalition with neighboring nations that would block the expansion of NAFTA by creating the Free Trade Area of the Americas.

Bilderberg’s consensus seemed to be to not force higher oil prices at the moment, but be content with the immense profits enjoyed now.

Chavez’s barrier to NAFTA expansion leaves them moody because establishing an “American Union” is a critical step toward Bilderberg’s goal of establishing the United Nations as a world government.

Pentagon Report Reveals New Iraqi Detainee Abuse

A newly released Pentagon study reveals that U.S. forces held Iraqi detainees for up to seven days at a time in cells so tiny that they could neither stand nor lie down. The cells measured four feet high, four feet long and twenty inches wide. One Iraqi detainee alleged his captors duct-taped his mouth and nose before placing him in the box-like cell. The Pentagon investigation also determined some Iraqi detainees were fed only bread and water for up to seventeen days during which time they were chained to the floor of their cells. Other Iraqis were stripped naked, deprived of sleep and assailed with loud music. The Pentagon report was completed in November 2004 but only made public last week in response to a Freedom of Information request from the American Civil Liberties Union. The report’s author, Army Brigadier General Richard Formica, determined the troops used unauthorized interrogation methods that violated the Geneva Conventions. But he recommended that no U.S. troops be disciplined for abusing Iraqis.

"we're nazi's, and we're ignoring the "nazi" part of being a "nazi" that we hate most: the genocide we're tacitly or explicitly endorsing..."


touche on the consolidation of wealth and power. that's what i was getting by making the claim that these groups never left but merely repackaged themselves and their ideas, which were simply resold at a higher market price. the zonder commando were jews who performed the ghastly task of actually terminating their fellow man in the camps. unfortunately, their role is commonly overlooked when reading history. they transgressed the virtues of brotherhood and humanity for reasons of misguided self-interest. yet, after 1945 these very individuals rewrote history and cleared themselves of any wrong doing. would any other ethnic group have the capacity to so? i wanted to know if you considered these "nazis" as well.

hence, "these folk" that you discuss, which meet secretly to plot their ascension irrespective of any adverse effects their path may have (ie. Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Aspers, etc...) are bonded by their roots, which simultaneously function as a membership card to their exclusive circles. those that fret about using the term "conspiracy" either fail to understand the intensity and frequency of their power or are complacent about remaining pc and not disturbing the status quo or both. meanwhile, wealth and power are further centralized in the hands of this group. this is not to say that every jew is privy to this but if you observe at who monopolizes and controls the levers of power in business, law, medicine, accounting and a sleuth of other influential professions then how can you deny their might. how can one group have displaced the rest of the world from power? i'm not advocating any particular action. merely asserting that we can't be blind to the facts.


yo b-diggidy,

i'm with ya, and on your first paragraph i agree - we're acting like nazi's.

the problem i have is that we don't realize what nazi's acted like, 'cause they acted like us. they weren't all bloodthirsty savages constantly battling and slaughtering, in fact they had a vibrant (if rather increasingly homogenous) culture thriving for much of their run, they participated in the world community including the olympics, and later this was up against some formidable adversaries in russia and much of europe even before america stepped in.

now, there is no one to challenge the anglo-american elite, especially with the globalization economic stranglehold they have on the rest of the world (hugo chavez: watch your ass... oh, you are? never mind...), so we could - in the latest words of formidable ghetto poet Ice Cube - "Laugh Now, Cry Later". as for the jews that helped, hey, it isn't like people put in horrible situations haven't acted horribly before, and like with every silly argument had today, one factor doesn't make or break it or fundamentally affect it or fix or deny the original problem that precipitated the argument. that's a very right-wing tactic, using one perceived flaw or mistake or shocking detail or something completely unrelated or unmentioned thus far to tarnish an entire argument or someone's character; or to make that the end-all be-all of one's "win" at an argument - e.g. you proved what you brought up irrespective of your opponent's acceptance of it as a valid definition of their side or defining factor in the argument, so you win, good for you. Fox News does this all the time: "Was Saddam a bad guy? Okay, then shut up!" once they've established that's all there is to establish, then they can conveniently ignore any discussion of the various war crimes taking place - or the "war" in general.

it's a cheap "ah-ha!" tactic that doesn't encourage dialogue or understanding, and it's getting much more common these days under the fascist coarsening of the discourse in general. on the jews selling out their own, there's brown doods shilling for the "torture is necessary to keep us safe!" crowd on "24", but i don't know why doods are doing it, nor whether they are of necessarily poorer moral character than the average: that's my point.

we're nazi's, and we're ignoring the "nazi" part of being a "nazi" that we hate most: the genocide we're tacitly or explicitly sanctioning or endorsing in the middle-east.

the embedded press isn't even allowed to ASK about depleted uranium or "D.U." as a part of their agreement to be embedded - and with good reason: it's arguably the greatest war crime in human history, with the costs in human life and to future generations far above and beyond the systematic gas chambers used by the nazi's. the number of people poisoned on both (all?) sides is staggering, with soldiers coming home incredibly sick, their children born deformed, military clean-up crews coming back with cancer, local iraqi's dying by the thousands and giving birth to horribly deformed children, to say nothing of the other congenital birth defects that will fundamentally alter the gene pool for thousands of years, and the winds blowing that same poison dust across africa, asia, europe, and by the looks of things, very shortly north america.

by supporting the most brutally hypocritical actions in human history - EVER - including disappearances, torture, radiation poisoning (40,000 Hiroshima bomb's worth), carpet bombing, starvation, rape and genocide against an enemy who is absolutely NO threat to us - no one can prove it - and no one can prove al-qaeda was responsible for 9/11 - and with us desiring to stay willfully ignorant of what's going on - and being self-satisfied with random awful reminders that an escalating "war" is happening and our admittedly lying and corrupt governments are handling it just fine... well, we're acting like "nazi's".

that's why i don't sweat peeps just living man, sure it's time we all made our choices a little more principled, but that doesn't mean we aren't all in on the game: anyone who uses "money" is supporting the petro-dollar cycle that allows the u.s. govt to print money and circulate it into the overall money supply while lowering it's value and sending huge profits to a few select individuals or families that only entrench their control and power. it's just the mafia dood, and all they do is run their sweatshops - from PriceWaterhouseCoopers to RicePaddyKneeDeepers. it's that simple, and nobody gets paid what the advances in technology should enable their labour to produce.

now, i'm not saying we should use a communist model of economic governance - then we wouldn't have the technology, but i am saying that we are glaringly ignorant of how things work, and about the inherent corruption in the system that's worsening at a rapid rate - on purpose, and devolving into fascism - or the natural deterioration of corrupted capitalism. this is what die-hard free-market advocates are missing: their role in hiding the massive corruption behind the insitutions that are telling them to sell us that point of view. economists and talking heads are low-level thugs sent to bludgeon us all into accepting one model of economic governance and policy as "reasonable" in the face of all the available evidence to the contrary: it's masterful stuff by "The Money Masters", touche.

if we had more metrics for what an ideal system of distribution looks like, then we could better course correct when things go radically wrong - like now. it's not hard to come up with a series of equitable guiding principles and rules on guaranteeing a base-healthy subsistence for everyone on the planet with the amount of resources we have, and it's only through regressive de-regulation and corporate media's support of the same that we forgot checks and balances on capitalism are healthy. i mean, we're taught to think that everything but "this" is unreasonable, and yet, in that same world, if it were proposed that one country should use 25% of the world's resources while half the world starved... one would think the economic theory justifying this was completely mad. then again, it is what it is: mad. there may be a few suggested ways of working around this, but the school-hardy thing not done often enough is to see whether it can be tackled head-on as a matter of human decency - and FIXED.

on your second paragraph, and the uber-rich and powerful in general, all i know is this:

what the hell would you expect them to do?

c'mon, this is just getting frikkin' stupid.

we know crusty old racist rich people are evil bastards, we know that in many cases the richer you are the more isolated and evil you are - and don't "Oprah" or "Bill Gates" me, there's hundreds of billionaires you bastards... where the hell they at? huh??? we also know historically that the rich try and screw the poor, we all say it a bajillion times, they're lapping up their recent corporate dividends and the bush tax cuts, they're torpedoing the american economy and fleeing the sinking ship, they're buying private islands and private security forces all over the world, they've let policies that perpetually and cruelly disadvantage 99% of the world persist and thrive, etc., etc...

so, why in hell wouldn't they get together in secret and try and screw everyone?

why wouldn't they trade like hell on inside information about all their plans for next year?

why wouldn't they make it easier to control governments, corporations, geo-political shifts in opinion and other factors to rake in enormous amounts of cash?

if the Big Oil guy says by the third quarter oil will be $100 a barrell, why wouldn't you invest early and cash out when it peaks? if the Big Govt guy says he's looking to increase the "defence" budget (umm... when is it ever used for "defence"?) by several billion, then why wouldn't you invest and get in on the flurry of no-bid contracts early? if the Big Media guy says they're going to shut up about, where Big Telecom is trying to take away the internet by getting rid of Network Neutrality - essentially how you get to surf wherever you want - and replace it with their own group of selected websites that have to pay their ISP for bandwidth or be refused access to the web - then why wouldn't you invest in Big Telecom and give them the push they need to shut the millions of people up about your historic corruption and crooked insider trading?

so yeah dood, nitpicking on issues of race ("zionist conspiracy"), or mysticism ("the illuminati"), or whatever isn't really the point: we need King Kong, Godzilla, Voltron and Grandizer (for his "Screw pressure punch!!!") led by Optimus Prime to run our own Nia People's SEC - Sucka's Exchanged Commission, and get to learning what these cranky old fuckwits may not even see: they can't control the destruction of the world. it will be beyond them, and beyond their capacity to save it or themselves if they do. they can hunker down or bunker out or just jet to some private island out there, but either way - once the air and water is fucked, we're all fucked. ugh.

anyway, i just caught two strange-ass things that caught my eye on the weekend:

1) Gil Scott-Heron has a song called "The King Alfred Plan" - i highly recommend checking it out, where he quotes U.S. regulations about sticking all the undesirables in camps - and this was back in the 1970's. today Halliburton got a $400 mm contract to build camps for emergency situations - it was in the Chicago Tribune, but alas, nowhere else. man, this new rise of "disaster capitalism" makes me think the bastards can control the weather too, i mean not all of it, but we already got cloud seeding - and most farmers swear it works, and I heard President Ford's former weather-dood on The Alex Jones Show say they had developed a way to mitigate hurricanes by seeding clouds near them to weaken their force and siphon off some of their power, and i'm sure some Googling would turn up some interesting stuff anyway...

2) I just saw "12 Monkeys" again on the weekend, a wikkid flick i bought the other day for $12, and it shows how 5 bln people were wiped out by a super-virus about 10 years ago (in the movie), while the rest lived in cages waiting to "volunteer" to go collect specimens in a highly toxic surface of the earth where none but the animals roam. you'd figure if the elite were to do this - release a virus or bio-weapon that kills all humans and keeps everything else looking fairly shiny, they'd have the antidote or immunity for themselves too. well, i've heard they got bunkers - in fact there's a whole secret govt set up around 9/11 by the white house to keep things running just in case a nuke hits the capital, and that's apparently where flight 93 was supposed to hit before a small group of heroic passengers forced it to crash land over an unbelievable ** 8 mile radius**.

hmph. anyway, makes me wonder if they're late...

so yeah, there you have it dood, and buh-dee, buh-dee, buh-dee, that's all folks...


Peace by plainly pointing out persistent problems...

Canada: A Galloping Police State?

Marjaleena Repo | June 19 2006

After five years of what can only be described as intense “terrorism envy” by our security establishment —with their repeated predictions of terrorist acts in Canada — the country has moved up a notch, to terrorism frenzy. The discovery of an alleged conspiracy by 17 Muslim men to attack facilities in Toronto and kidnap parliamentarians (as well as beheading the prime minister) — ostensibly to get Canada to withdraw from Afghanistan— came just in time before parliament debates the renewal of our post-2001 anti-terrorism legislation, and when support for Canada’s all out military involvement in Afghanistan is softening by the day.

The June 2 arrests were done with massive police involvement. Snipers on rooftops, in full glare of the notified-in-advance media, guaranteed 24-hour TV coverage and screaming headlines, topped off by a full court press conference by the CSIS and the RCMP. A full-fledged national crisis was born, fueled by rumours and fear. Our whole national security was at stake, and Islam, and to a lesser degree, multiculturalism, was to blame, for enabling such individuals to function underneath our very noses. A new term, “home-grown terrorists,” was slammed into our vocabulary overnight.

While the frightening picture of religion-driven extremists was bombarding our senses, the lawyers of the accused complained that they could not find out what the evidence against their clients was, could not even talk to them without armed police presence. Two weeks after the arrest, the accused and their lawyers are still in the dark about what led to the extreme charges. The accused are kept in solitary confinement, forced to sleep with lights on and woken every half-an-hour during the night.

A media ban has been imposed, preventing the press and the lawyers from exposing the exact nature of the information or discussing the court proceedings. The initial horrific rumours are left standing, fueling more fears of all things Muslim (now interchangeable with “extremist”). Some of the Muslim community were also pulled into this vortex of hysteria, trying to do the impossible: disassociating themselves from “bad” Muslims and pledging to do “house cleaning,” to rid their mosques and communities of such individuals. For this they have received many pats on the back (and head) from the amen-corner in the media and security establishment.

Two weeks after the spectacular arrests, Canadians still know next to nothing of the doings and utterances of the 17: they were on chat lines (watched by the police), they played paint ball and did target practice in the woods (watched by their neigbours), they wore camouflage and military style boots, they had ordered a large amount of ammonium nitrate, a potential component of bombs, some of it delivered to their door by a police agent. We don’t know how many were involved in any of the above. Five pairs of boots were displayed for the cameras, six flashlights, one walkie-talkie set, one voltmeter, eight D-cell batteries, a cell phone, a circuit board, a computer hard drive, one barbecue grill, a set of barbecue tongs, a wooden door with 21 bullet marks and a 9 mm hand gun. That should do it —clear proof that they were up to no good!

But wait a minute, is this scenario not deja vu from August 2003, when 24 Muslim men were taken down in an similar early-dawn police action, apprehended for planned terrorist acts such as bombing the CN tower and nuclear facilities in Ontario, their names and faces plastered on the media, far and wide? Much mutual congratulation among the intelligence community, the police and security forces ensued. Project Thread, as it was called, however, turned soon into Project Threadbare: nothing was found on the men, no evidence, no plans, no conspiracy, no tools to accomplish their dastardly deeds, and no membership in an “Al Quada sleeper cell,” as was initially claimed. They were cleared but not before being incarcerated, some for months. In the end, a couple of the men were found guilty of minor immigration infractions and deported. Others left the country, disgraced, their lives in tatters, only to find their “terrorist“ reputations following them to Pakistan, where some ended up being interrogated and jailed before being released. They have received neither an apology nor a penny of compensation from Canada.

Is it possible that the CSIS and the RCMP have learned their lessons, that they have worked harder to make the charges stick this time? Having watched the 17 men and boys for several years, with no terrorist acts having occurred, they appear to have helped the suspects along by entrapping them, including delivering an order of ammonia nitrate to one of the suspects (although with contents substituted). Perhaps we will find out that the purchaser was reluctant but the agent was ardent in his determination to make the terrorist charges hold, at last.

With the defence of the current accused already thwarted, we can expect a show trial and a kangaroo court to justify the terrorism hysteria that is so aggressively being cultivated, day in and out, by authorities and much of the media. With several other Muslims being held for years on dubious “security certificates” — challenged now in the Supreme Court of Canada — we will likely see more Muslim men end up in the no-man’s-land of Canadian justice, without trial and due process. A galloping police state is emerging, in a fashion, familiar to those who know their history, of 1930’s Germany.

It is time for Canadians, living blindfolded and silenced in a fool’s paradise, to remember Pastor Martin Niemoller’s famous warning to his fellow Germans, here freely paraphrased: “When they came for the Muslims/I remained silent/I was not a Muslim. //When they locked up the Aboriginals/defending their ancient lands/I remained silent/I was not an Aboriginal// When they came for the brown-skinned immigrants/ I did not speak up /I was not one of them// When they came for the critics, the dissidents, and the protesters/I did not speak out/I was not one of them// When they came for me/There was no one left to speak out.”

Six Conspiracies of Separation: Greg Palast, Janeane Garofalo, Larry David, Amy Goodman, Randi Rhodes, and Alex Jones... ("Live on!")

Palast appears in Alex Jones' best film so far - "Martial Law 9/11: Rise of the Police State", and as an American investigative journalist who's done TV for the BBC News and articles for The Guardian UK, among others - while being locked out the U.S. mainstream media, I'm sure he agrees that anyone who's got the balls'n'brains to scrap is most welcome...]

"The less oil, the higher the price!"

- Greg Palast, just now (19/Jun/06 - 2:01 pm EST) on the Alex Jones Show

- FYI, the oil companies are restricting supply so they can jack up the prices.

- There is no shortage due to Middle-East instability, New Orleans drowning, the Brangelina Babywatch, the Olsen Twin eating-disorder, or any other stupid reasons.

- To Wit: in 2002 the 5 largest oil companies made $30 billion in profits; in 2005 they made $113 billion in profits; so, if there's no supply-chain issue that's affecting everyone relatively equally - i.e. no supply "shortages" across the board that would prevent oil companies from profiting while the consumer is screwed, then why aren't we all taking the same percentage hit on gas prices equally?

- To Wit: why are the Big Oil companies MAKING 400% more in profits while we're PAYING 100% more for gas???



Bush Didn't Bungle Iraq, You Fools

by Greg Palast

Get off it. All the carping, belly-aching and complaining about George Bush's incompetence in Iraq, from both the Left and now the Right, is just dead wrong.

On the third anniversary of the tanks rolling over Iraq's border, most of the 59 million Homer Simpsons who voted for Bush are beginning to doubt if his mission was accomplished.


Palast returns to the pages of the Guardian today with this column. Catch his commentaries weekly at


But don't kid yourself -- Bush and his co-conspirator, Dick Cheney, accomplished exactly what they set out to do. In case you've forgotten what their real mission was, let me remind you of White House spokesman Ari Fleisher's original announcement, three years ago, launching of what he called,




O.I.L. How droll of them, how cute. Then, Karl Rove made the giggling boys in the White House change it to "OIF" -- Operation Iraqi Freedom. But the 101st Airborne wasn't sent to Basra to get its hands on Iraq's OIF.

"It's about oil," Robert Ebel told me. Who is Ebel? Formerly the CIA's top oil analyst, he was sent by the Pentagon, about a month before the invasion, to a secret confab in London with Saddam's former oil minister to finalize the plans for "liberating" Iraq's oil industry. In London, Bush's emissary Ebel also instructed Ibrahim Bahr al-Ulum, the man the Pentagon would choose as post-OIF oil minister for Iraq, on the correct method of disposing Iraq's crude.

And what did the USA want Iraq to do with Iraq's oil? The answer will surprise many of you: and it is uglier, more twisted, devilish and devious than anything imagined by the most conspiracy-addicted blogger. The answer can be found in a 323-page plan for Iraq's oil secretly drafted by the State Department. Our team got a hold of a copy; how, doesn't matter. The key thing is what's inside this thick Bush diktat: a directive to Iraqis to maintain a state oil company that will "enhance its relationship with OPEC."

Enhance its relationship with OPEC??? How strange: the government of the United States ordering Iraq to support the very OPEC oil cartel which is strangling our nation with outrageously high prices for crude.

Specifically, the system ordered up by the Bush cabal would keep a lid on Iraq's oil production -- limiting Iraq's oil pumping to the tight quota set by Saudi Arabia and the OPEC cartel.

There you have it. Yes, Bush went in for the oil -- not to get more of Iraq's oil, but to prevent Iraq producing too much of it.

You must keep in mind who paid for George's ranch and Dick's bunker: Big Oil. And Big Oil -- and their buck-buddies, the Saudis -- don't make money from pumping more oil, but from pumping less of it. The lower the supply, the higher the price.

It's Economics 101. The oil industry is run by a cartel, OPEC, and what economists call an "oligopoly" -- a tiny handful of operators who make more money when there's less oil, not more of it. So, every time the "insurgents" blow up a pipeline in Basra, every time Mad Mahmoud in Tehran threatens to cut supply, the price of oil leaps. And Dick and George just love it.

Dick and George didn't want more oil from Iraq, they wanted less. I know some of you, no matter what I write, insist that our President and his Veep are on the hunt for more crude so you can cheaply fill your family Hummer; that somehow, these two oil-patch babies are concerned that the price of gas in the USA is bumping up to $3 a gallon.

Not so, gentle souls. Three bucks a gallon in the States (and a quid a litre in Britain) means colossal profits for Big Oil, and that makes Dick's ticker go pitty-pat with joy. The top oily-gopolists, the five largest oil companies, pulled in $113 billion in profit in 2005 -- compared to a piddly $34 billion in 2002 before Operation Iraqi Liberation. In other words, it's been a good war for Big Oil.

As per Plan Bush, Bahr Al-Ulum became Iraq's occupation oil minister; the conquered nation "enhanced its relationship with OPEC;" and the price of oil, from Clinton peace-time to Bush war-time, shot up 317%.

In other words, on the third anniversary of invasion, we can say the attack and occupation is, indeed, a Mission Accomplished. However, it wasn't America's mission, nor the Iraqis'. It was a Mission Accomplished for OPEC and Big Oil.

African-American Voters Scrubbed by Secret GOP Hit List

Massacre of the Buffalo Soldiers

As reported for Democracy Now!

Palast, who first reported this story for BBC Television Newsnight (UK) and Democracy Now! (USA), is author of the New York Times bestseller, Armed Madhouse.

The Republican National Committee has a special offer for African-American soldiers: Go to Baghdad, lose your vote.

A confidential campaign directed by GOP party chiefs in October 2004 sought to challenge the ballots of tens of thousands of voters in the last presidential election, virtually all of them cast by residents of Black-majority precincts.
Files from the secret vote-blocking campaign were obtained by BBC Television Newsnight, London. They were attached to emails accidentally sent by Republican operatives to a non-party website.

No Child’s Behind Left

By Greg Palast
Excerpt from Armed Madhouse

They take away your overtime, your 40-hour week, your regulatory protection against corporate marauders, your right to courtroom justice, your protection against unfair trade, even the right to get your ballot counted. But there’s always hope. Hope is the last thing to go. And your hope is your kids, that they’ll have an opportunity you didn’t have. On January 21, 2004, the President told you they’d have to take that away too.
On that night, deep into his State of the Union sermon to Congress, when sensible adults had turned off the tube or kicked in the screen, our President opened a new front in the class war. And like the one in Iraq, it began with a lie. “By passing the No Child Left Behind Act,” our President told us, “We are regularly testing every child…and making sure they have better options when schools are not performing.”

“And at Daddy’s Polo Club, the Waiter Is Called A…”

The core of No Child Left Behind is the early-age test. And here’s what they’re testing. The following is taken from the actual practice test given eight-year-olds in the State of New York in 2006. The test determined which children should advance, which should be left behind in the third grade.

They got him — the big, bad, beheading berserker in Iraq. But, something’s gone unreported in all the glee over getting Zarqawi … who invited him into Iraq in the first place?

If you prefer your fairy tales unsoiled by facts, read no further. If you want the uncomfortable truth, begin with this: A phone call to Baghdad to Saddam’s Palace on the night of April 21, 2003. It was Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on a secure line from Washington to General Jay Garner.

The General arrived in Baghdad just hours before to take charge of the newly occupied nation. The message from Rumsfeld was not a heartwarming welcome. Rummy told Garner, Don’t unpack, Jack — you’re fired.

Most Americans are well aware that in 2000, the presidential election was decided by 537 votes. From hanging chads to the hourly updates of the manual recount, this story was obsessively covered by the mainstream press. However, what wasn’t covered was what journalist Greg Palast discovered that thousands of primarily minority voters were scrubbed from the voter registry in Florida and prevented from potentially changing the course of Americans turbulent last four years.

By the spring of 2004 all around the country, groups from both sides of the aisle were organizing and activating plans to impact the coming presidential election from MoveOn to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Here at GNN we were finishing our book, True Lies, two related documentary projects and barely had enough time for our own attempt of an online voter registration campaign. Through Palast’s reporting and our own investigations into electronic voting machines and the crossover campaign that defeated Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, we became increasingly aware of the fallibility of elections and the fragile state of America’s most fundamental democratic process. We also knew the potential power of the youth vote. With more than 55 million voters between the ages of 18 and 35, this demographic group accounts for 36% of the total eligible voters in the U.S. And as witnessed in 2000 it all comes down to who shows up to vote on election day.

The Spies Who Shag Us

Published by Greg Palast May 15th, 2006

I know you’re shocked — SHOCKED! — that George Bush is listening in on all your phone calls. Without a warrant. That’s nothing. And it’s not news. This is: the snooping into your phone bill is just the snout of the pig of a strange, lucrative link-up between the Administration’s Homeland Security spy network and private companies operating beyond the reach of the laws meant to protect us from our government. You can call it the privatization of the FBI — though it is better described as the creation of a private KGB.

Listen to Greg Palast, reading Double Cheese With Fear.

For the full story, see “Double Cheese With Fear,” in Armed Madhouse: Who’s Afraid of Osama Wolf and Other Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Class War.”
The leader in the field of what is called “data mining,” is a company called, “ChoicePoint, Inc,” which has sucked up over a billion dollars in national security contracts. Worried about Dick Cheney listening in Sunday on your call to Mom? That ain’t nothing. You should be more concerned that they are linking this info to your medical records, your bill purchases and your entire personal profile including, not incidentally, your voting registration. Five years ago, I discovered that ChoicePoint had already gathered 16 billion data files on Americans — and I know they’ve expanded their ops at an explosive rate. They are paid to keep an eye on you — because the FBI can’t. For the government to collect this stuff is against the law unless you’re suspected of a crime. (The law in question is the Constitution.) But ChoicePoint can collect it for “commercial” purchases — and under the Bush Administration’s suspect reading of the Patriot Act — our domestic spying apparatchiks can then BUY the info from ChoicePoint. Who ARE these guys selling George Bush a piece of you?

World Bank Secret Documents Consumes Argentina

Alex Jones Interviews Reporter Greg Palast
Monday, March 4, 2002

E-Mail Article
Printer Friendly Version

(Courtesy of A Great Listener)

AJ: This is earth shattering. Can you break it down for us and tell us what the economists have done?

GP: Well, I'll tell you two things. One, I spoke to the former chief economist, Joe Stiglitz who was fired by the (World) Bank. So I, on BBC and with Guardian, basically spent some time debriefing him. It was like one of the scenes out of Mission Impossible, you know where the guy comes over from the other side and you spend hours debriefing him. So I got the insight of what was happening at the World Bank. In addition, he did not brief me but I got some other sources. He would not give me inside documents but other people handed me a giant stash of secret documents from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

AJ: So to insulate himself, somebody else did it.

GP: No, I'm telling you. He wouldn't touch it but I really did get from completely independent sources a big stack of documents.

AJ: Just like you got W199I, from the same folks we got it from.

GP: And so one of the things that is happening is that, in fact, I was supposed to be on CNN with the head of the World Bank Jim Wolfensen and he said he would not appear on CNN ever if they put me on. And so CNN did the craziest thing and pulled me off.

AJ: So now they are threatening total boycott.

GP: Yea right. So what we found was this. We found inside these documents that basically they required nations to sign secret agreements, in which they agreed to sell off their key assets, in which they agreed to take economic steps which are really devastating to the nations involved and if they didn't agree to these steps, there was an average for each nation that signed one-hundred and eleven items that they are required to sign on to. If they didn't follow those steps they would be cut-off from all international borrowing. You can't borrow any money in the international marketplace. No one can survive without borrowing, whether you are people or corporations or countries - without borrowing some money and having some credit and ...

AJ: Because of the debt inflation pit they've created.

GP: Yea, well, see one of the things that happened is that - we've got examples from, I've got inside documents recently from Argentina, the secret Argentine plan. This is signed by Jim Wolfensen, the president of the World Bank. By the way, just so you know, they are really upset with me that I've got the documents, but they have not challenged the authenticity of the documents. First, they did. First they said those documents don't exist. I actually showed them on television. And cite some on the web, I actually have copies of some...

AJ: Greg Palast dot com?

GP: Yea, So then they backed off and said yea those documents are authentic but we are not going to discuss them with you and we are going to keep you off the air anyway. So, that's that. But what they were saying is look, you take a country like Argentina, which is, you know, in flames now. And it has had five presidents in five weeks because their economy is completely destroyed.

AJ: Isn't it six now?

GP: Yea, it's like the weekly president because they can't hold the nation together. And this happened because they started out in the end of the 80s with orders from the IMF and World Bank to sell-off all their assets, public assets. I mean, things we wouldn't think of doing in the US, like selling off their water system.
