Is the US preparing for a mass political exodus?
I don't want to scare anybody with this information, most of which comes from very reliable sources. I do, however, perceive that the Bush junta has no intention of giving up power. Look, folks, these guys have no intention of leaving Iraq. If they did, they wouldn't be 14 building permanent bases and an embassy the size of the Vatican. Check out this snippet from the New Yorker:
"The most recent budget request provided by the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq mentions the building of a new oil refinery and the drilling of new wells. '[Haliburton] said originally they were just going to bring it up to prewar levels. Now they're getting money to dramatically improve it,' [Rep.] Waxman complained. Who is going to own these upgrades, after the United States government has finished paying Halliburton to build them? 'Who knows?' Waxman said. 'Nobody is saying.'"
But these guys are going down if they don't do something quick. In other words, they are desperate. I've seen a lot of disconcerting articles lately, and they all seem to point towards a shadow government paving the way towards a totalitarian state.

Is there any validity to this recent post?
(Caviat: Links in the comments section regarding shackled boxcars start talking about space aliens. That doesn't mean one should discount what's in this video any more than one shouldn't believe 9-11 was an inside job just because some very odd people say the same thing.)
"Doomed to repeat: Germany, 1933"
"I know how dangerous it is to argue by comparing present events to the Nazi nightmare. But I did a little research, and the comparison between the torture bill that Congress is about to pass and the Enabling Act of 1933 -- the law that gave Hitler his power -- seems inescapable to me."
Now is not the time to be silent. Now is the time to start making a lot of noise. To quote Audre Lorde, "Your silence will not protect you."
