Rights-Wing Republicans vs. Reich-Wing Republicans: Who's Right?

Download a movie to Save The World:


Silence is deadly.

Silence is medley.


It's been a minute now since "Bush's Reichstag Fire" (John Buchanan), and we're still silent, humbly humming platitudes in hegemenous harmony while wasting away intellectually and spiritually at The Big Lie we're living.

That's cool, and really, maybe it's best if everything was blown up.

Actually, according to some fools of thought, that's what God wants.

In fact...

Some of those fools are in charge.


"Look in his eyes, its all lies!
The stars and stripes, have been swiped,
Washed out and wiped,
And replaced with his own face:
Mosh now or die!
If I get sniped tonight, you’ll know why:
‘Cause I told you to fight..."

- Eminem, "Mosh"


It's more important than anything else to note the necessarily-slow incremental march of evil, the smooth ease with which they change how we think so we're not overly alarmed, and how the excuses we make for evil normalizes it.

"Evil" you say?

"Evil" I say.

We've got people we wouldn't let run our local PTA Meeting in charge of the world right now, those who's lust for power apparently qualifies them for the job, and those who's incompetence in "leading" us to a better world has grown to willfully epidemic proportions.

We've got to take what's important back, take what's in-style back, take what's reality back from the perversion pimped on TV.

I ain't the first to say it, but I'm afraid I may be among the last.

People seem to want wholesale change to come easy, and in deference to that, it's a fairly simple solution.

Hell, even Apple Computers jacked it for a minute a minute ago.

"Think Different."

And that's it really.

Plain and simple.


Half of it is what happens to you, and the other half is how you deal with it.


There are bad actions, and worse reactions.

3000 people were killed on 9/11.

Bad actions.

300 million Americans are about to live in a police state.

Worse reactions.

3 billion people still live on less than $2 a day.

Worse inactions.

How does one approach a problem like this and keep their sanity?

It's not that hard:

Keep your sanity.


Everything is practice, and everything is the game.

Each action builds on itself in the continuum of time and space, and each action can lead to building a stronger prototype for tomorrow.

Or a weaker one.

It's not an "active" process; there's not enough people who want to be "active" to ensure that can work. It's a "passive" process, and focusing on "passive" responses ensures we keep our heads about us. Then we need to use the simple tools of fools passed down through generations to deal with localized solutions, starting from the "self", to the "other", to the "community", to the "world".

Getting all worked up over something rarely leads to the best and most inclusive answers, and tunnel-vision can be alienating.


I ran into a cute lil' Greenpeace Girl on the street a while back, and as we were debating tactics, a shiny silver Mercedes drove by.

I asked her: "Is that a nice car?"

She defiantly answered: "No! I'd rather have a bike!"

I looked at her like: "Bitch are you crazy???"

(I didn't say that, but did say she was "wrong".)

I mean c'mon.

How is she going to reach across the damnable demarcations drawn by the demonizing daily-news devils to prove she ain't crazy?

To prove "they" ain't crazy?

To relate to "normal" people who don't recognize "her"?

To relate to "normal" people who recognize "nice" stuff?

Sure, when I'm "ridin' on 24's" I usually mean my bike, but I know my buddy's tricked-out $100,000 Denali that feels like you're riding around in a giant love-seat on a gyroscope is "nice". Just like I know that $50,000 spinning G-Unit chain chock full of carats'n'carats of crushed-canaries is "nice". Just like I know anything that cost a fortune and "blings" right is "nice".

Even Tiger Woods, arguably the greatest golfer in the world, still has to play the ball where it lands.

We're here, we've got "nice" stuff, the question is can we keep it.


Watching the news the other night I was stunned by their suggested response to skyrocketing gas prices, as the blow-dried bimbo blurted out:

"Finally! You can do something about it!"

You can carpool.

That's it?

That's the big-ass revelation?

That was why they followed a lady around for a day?

We're being undersold our own unrealized potential, and that of those who are working a thousand times harder and smarter on solutions than we're not allowed to recognize or ever see.

This makes us think they're not driven by a passion for the truth.

This makes us think they don't exist.


Here, they exist...

Fuck the corporate media.

Fuck all of 'em.

I ain't going out like that, and I can't take what it's doing to all of us.

I don't blame the journalists, they've gotta be tearing their hair out right now assuming they haven't bought into their own Poo-Poo Infallibility.

I understand the game, and if in 6 months I'm not where I want to be as an artist and writer, I'll simply renounce everything I've done and go mainstream.

Fuck it.

If you ask "why?", I'll say because I want to.

If you say "I like his old stuff better, man, he used to be hardcore!", I'll say fine, you can play or read my old shit, I left a tonne of it for ya.

But as for right here and right now and the right reaction to the world going to hell, if my pants-sag while I brag I don't give two-shits about getting played by the next man: it ain't happening.

Your self-worth is defined by yourself, and without that you're nothing.

Your "nice" stuff helps, but it's just icing on the caker.

Republican Congressman Slams Bush On Gun Confiscation

Ron Paul says avian flu martial law provisions are designed to destroy 2nd Amendment, Posse Comitatus

Infowars Network | October 12 2005
By Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones

Congressman Ron Paul has accused the Bush administration of attempting to set in motion a militarized police state in America by enacting gun confiscation martial law provisions in the event of an avian flu pandemic. Paul also slammed as delusional and dangerous plans to invade Iran, Syria, North Korea and China.

Ron Paul represents the 14th Congressional district of Texas. He also serves on the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee, and the International Relations committee.

Paul appeared on the Alex Jones show yesterday and raised some interesting points about the possibility of imminent indictments of top Bush administration figures.

"I think there's a lot more excitement coming and it's not going to be good for the Republicans," stated Paul.

"The things that I hear have to do with Karl Rove and Abramoff and that's much much worse than anybody would believe and it involves DeLay as well."

"And that type of an indictment will be much more serious than the indictment of shifting campaign funds around.....there's some political infighting which could make that really interesting."

On the subject of the police state, Paul stated, "If we don't change our ways we will go the way of Rome and I see that as rather sad.....the worst things happen when you get the so-called Republican conservatives in charge from Nixon on down, big government flourishes under Republicans."

"It's really hard to believe it's happening right in front of us. Whether it's the torture or the process of denying habeas corpus to an American citizen."

"I think the arrogance of power that they have where they themselves are like the sense that they decide what is right. The Communist Party said that they decided what was right or wrong, it wasn't a higher source."

Paul responded to President Bush's announcement last week that he would order the use of military assets to police America in the event of an avian flu outbreak.

"To me it's so strange that the President can make these proposals and it's even plausible. When he talks about martial law dealing with some epidemic that might come later on and having forced quarantines, doing away with Posse Comitatus in order to deal with natural disasters, and hardly anybody says anything. People must be scared to death."

Paul, himself a medical doctor, agreed that the bird flu threat was empty fearmongering.

"I believe it is the President hyping this and Rumsfeld, but it has to be in combination with the people being fearful enough that they will accept the man on the white horse. My first reaction going from my political and medical background is that it's way overly hyped and to think that they have gone this far with it, without a single case in the whole country and they're willing to change the law and turn it into a military state? That is unbelievable! They're determined to have martial law."

Paul opined that the martial law provisions now being promoted by the Bush administration were a direct response to people's unwillingness to relinquish their firearms, as was seen in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

"I think they're concerned about the remnant, the remnant of those individuals who don't buy into stuff and think that they should take care of themselves on their own, that they should have their own guns and their own provisions and they don't want to depend on the government at all and I think that is a threat to those who want to hold power. They don't want any resistance to their authoritarian rule."

Paul opined that the government was on a delusional power trip that threatened the country.

"These guys are ready to start a war with Iran, Syria, North Korea or China. They can't possibly do that, it's so insane, we don't have the money, we don't have the troops, we probably don't even have the ammunition."

"But, if they are truly delusional they just might do something that's totally irrational."

Paul expressed his hope that finally some conservatives are waking up to the fact that the Bush administration is a trojan horse, especially after arch-liberal Harriet Miers was chosen by Bush to supposedly move the Supreme Court to the right, even though her record is atrocious and she has been involved in the past covering up for the Bush crime family's activities.

New York subway threat was a hoax, security sources admit

London Guardian | October 12, 2005

By Jamie Wilson

The alleged terror threat that sparked a big security alert on New York's trains and subway last week turned out to be a hoax concocted by an unreliable US informant in Iraq, it emerged yesterday.

Uniformed and undercover police descended on the city's subway system on Friday after what was described as a "specific threat" that a terror cell was planning to explode bombs concealed in pushchairs, suitcases and rucksacks. At one point a section of Penn Station was sealed off as security staff wearing chemical hazard suits investigated a "soupy green substance" found in a Pepsi bottle. It turned out be a cleaning substance.

But security sources yesterday told CNN that an informant in Iraq had admitted giving false information. Law enforcement officials said last week that the person who passed along the New York tip also gave information which led to the arrests of three al-Qaida suspects in Musayyib, south of Baghdad, said to have links to the alleged plot.

But yesterday government sources said the three men had been interviewed and two underwent lie detector tests showing they knew nothing about such a plan.

From the beginning some federal officials questioned the credibility of the plot, describing it as "specific yet non-credible". Some officials privately criticised the mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, for overreacting to the alert, which came the day after George Bush claimed 10 big al-Qaida attacks had been thwarted since September 11 2001.

Law enforcement officials also told the New York Times yesterday that the investigation in Iraq had found no evidence that a plot was in motion or being actively contemplated. The officials said after taking the three men into custody last week they found no fake passports, no travel documents, no viable travel route to New York, and no apparent contact with people in New York. They said the informant had been right eight of the 15 times he gave information to his Defence Intelligence Agency handlers. He was right about information in Iraq and wrong mostly about actions elsewhere. "The process is not a clean one here. Ever," one official told the newspaper.

Mr Bloomberg said the extraordinary measures put in place last week, including police on every train, would be relaxed, but that the city would continue many of the safeguards it has taken to protect since the London bombings in July

Poll: Americans Want Bush Impeached

Daily Kos | 12 Oct 2005
By David Swanson

Poll: Americans Favor Bush's Impeachment If He Lied about Iraq

By a margin of 50% to 44%, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq, according to a new poll commissioned by, a grassroots coalition that supports a Congressional investigation of President Bush's decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

David Swanson's diary :: ::

The poll was conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs, the highly-regarded non-partisan polling company. The poll interviewed 1,001 U.S. adults on October 6-9.

The poll found that 50% agreed with the statement:

"If President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should consider holding him accountable by impeaching him."

44% disagreed, and 6% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a +/- 3.1% margin of error.

Among those who felt strongly either way, 39% strongly agreed, while 30% strongly disagreed.

"The results of this poll are truly astonishing," said co-founder Bob Fertik. "Bush's record-low approval ratings tell just half of the story, which is how much Americans oppose Bush's policies on Iraq and other issues. But this poll tells the other half of the story - that a solid plurality of Americans want Congress to consider removing Bush from the White House."

Impeachment Supported by Majorities of Many Groups

Responses varied by political party affiliation: 72% of Democrats favored impeachment, compared to 56% of Independents and 20% of Republicans.

Responses also varied by age and income. Solid majorities of those under age 55 (54%), as well as those with household incomes below $50,000 (57%), support impeachment.

Majorities favored impeachment in the Northeast (53%), West (51%), and even the South (50%).

Support for Impeachment Surged Since June

The Ipsos poll shows a dramatic transformation in support for Bush's impeachment since late June. (This is only the second poll that has asked Americans about their support for impeaching Bush in 2005, despite his record-low approval ratings.) The Zogby poll conducted June 27-29 of 905 likely voters found that 42% agreed and 50% disagreed with a statement virtually identical to the one used by Ipsos Public Affairs. (see footnote below)

Ipsos 10/8-9
Zogby 6/27-29
Net Change

Support Impeachment

Oppose Impeachment

Impeachment Margin

After the June poll, pollster John Zogby told the Washington Post that support for impeachment "was much higher than I expected." At the time, impeachment supporters trailed opponents by 8%. Now supporters outnumber opponents by 6%, a remarkable shift of 14%.

Support for Clinton Impeachment Was Much Lower

In August and September of 1998, 16 major polls asked about impeaching President Clinton ( Only 36% supported hearings to consider impeachment, and only 26% supported actual impeachment and removal. Even so, the impeachment debate dominated the news for months, and the Republican Congress impeached Clinton despite overwhelming public opposition.

Impeachment Support is Closely Related to Belief that Bush Lied about Iraq

Both the Ipsos and Zogby polls asked about support for impeachment if Bush lied about the reasons for war, rather than asking simply about support for impeachment. Pollsters predict that asking simply about impeachment without any context would produce a large number of "I don't know" responses. However, this may understate the percentage of Americans who favor Bush's impeachment for other reasons, such as his slow response to Hurricane Katrina, his policy on torture, soaring gasoline prices, or other concerns.

Other polls show a majority of U.S. adults believe that Bush did in fact lie about the reasons for war. A June 23-26 ABC/Washington Post poll found 52% of Americans believe the Bush administration "deliberately misled the public before the war," and 57% say the Bush administration "intentionally exaggerated its evidence that pre-war Iraq possessed nuclear, chemical or biological weapons."

Support for the war has dropped significantly since June, which suggests that the percentage of Americans who believe Bush lied about the war has increased.

Passion for Impeachment is Major Unreported Story

The strong support for impeachment found in this poll is especially surprising because the views of impeachment supporters are entirely absent from the broadcast and print media, and can only be found on the Internet and in street protests, including the large anti-war rally in Washington on September 24.

The lack of coverage of impeachment support is due in part to the fact that not a single Democrat in Congress has called for impeachment, despite considerable grassroots activism by groups like (

"We will, no doubt, see an increase in activism following this poll," said David Swanson, co-founder of "But will we see an increase in media coverage? The media are waiting for action in Congress. Apparently it's easier to find and interview one of the 535 members of Congress than it is to locate a representative of the half of the country that wants the President impeached if he lied about the war. The media already accepts that Bush did lie about the war. We know this because so many editors and pundits told us that the Downing Street Memo was 'old news.' What we need now is journalism befitting a democracy, journalism that goes out and asks people what they really think about their government, especially George Bush."

The passion of impeachment supporters is directly responsible for the new poll commissioned by AfterDowningStreet. After the Zogby poll in June, activists led by urged all of the major polling organizations to include an impeachment question in their upcoming polls. But none of the polling organizations were willing to do so for free, so on September 30, posted a request for donations to fund paid polls ( As of October 10, 330 individuals had contributed $8,919 in small donations averaging $27 each. has commissioned a second poll which is expected soon, and will continue to urge all polling organizations to include the impeachment question in their regular polls. If they do not, will continue to commission regular impeachment polls.

US mulls federal troops for bird flu quarantine

By Will Dunham 39 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Pentagon is looking at the possibility of using federal troops to enforce a quarantine in the event of an outbreak of pandemic bird flu in the United States, a senior official said on Wednesday.

President George W. Bush said last week he would consider using the military to "effect a quarantine" in response to any outbreak of avian influenza, but provided few details.

Bush at the time also suggested he might place National Guard troops, normally commanded by state governors, under federal control as part of the government's response to the "catastrophe" of such a flu pandemic.

Paul McHale, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, said quarantine law historically has been under the primary jurisdiction of states, not the federal government.

"And my expectation is that any quarantine measures that would be put in place would likely involve a substantial employment of the National Guard, probably under command and control of the governor of an affected state," McHale told a group of reporters.

"However, we are looking at a wide range of contingencies, potentially involving Title 10 forces (federal troops) if a pandemic outbreak of a biological threat were to occur," McHale added.

The H5N1 avian influenza virus has killed or forced the destruction of tens of millions of birds and infected more than 100 people, killing at least 60 in four Asian nations since late 2003.

Experts fear that the virus, known to pass to humans from birds, could mutate and start to spread easily from person to person, potentially killing millions worldwide. Experts have questioned America's preparedness.

McHale said he believed there would be a clearer understanding within a few weeks of the military role in response to pandemic bird flu as part of a broader federal response. Pentagon officials were meeting on Wednesday to discuss the department's role in a flu pandemic.


One issue that could face the U.S. government in the event of an outbreak is whether or how to cordon off parts of the country to prevent the disease from spreading.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, enacted during the post-Civil War reconstruction period, prohibits federal military personnel from taking part in law-enforcement within the United States. But a president can waive the law in an emergency.

National Guard troops under the command of state governors are permitted to perform law enforcement duties, but would not be permitted to do so if they were put under federal control.

McHale noted that the military has been used only under extraordinary circumstances for domestic law enforcement and restoring civil order.

While not specifically referring to enforcing a quarantine, McHale said the Pentagon has active-duty federal military units on alert and deployable at the direction of the president "to deal with occurrences of massive civil disturbance." He did not identify the units.

On the topic of possible domestic attack involving biological, chemical or nuclear weapons, McHale said the government needs "a more robust civilian capability" to respond so the country is not exclusively dependent on the military.

McHale said the Pentagon is working to help make the Department of Homeland Security better able to make strategic plans for natural disasters or domestic attacks involving weapons of mass destruction. The department's Federal Emergency Management Agency was strongly criticized for its slow response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster on the U.S. Gulf Coast in August.
