While I often disagree with Pat Buchanan's positions on social issues, I believe that his hard-headed foreign policy analysis is excellent. As one of the most vocal critics of the neocon "War Party" [aka Bush Cabal], Buchanan uses fact-based research and an amazing grasp of history to back up his reasoning. Here is another solid reminder that the "War on Terrorism" is only fanning the flames...
The details are still a little scarce at this moment. But a bus in London has been bombed. The death/injury toll(if there is one) is yet to be announced. The subway system is shut down with little more than reports of "incidents" at three stations or trains. Officials are saying nothing but that they are not treating this as a "large incident".

Former Auxiliary NY Fireman Is 'A One-Man Investigative Team' When It Comes To Finding The Truth About 9/11
In a performance designed to demonstrate that even in Sudan there is greater respect for the truth than in the US, a Sudanese official decided to speak the truth to an aide to Condoleza Rice who had just astonished everyone by saying, "In the US we have freedom of the press." The Sudanese official did not wish to enter into discussion with the American prevaricator and decided to best him by example, saying, "Well, we don't here." The American lapdog corporate media reported the incident without having grasped the subtlety of Sudanese's behavior (see below) but general frustration with the entire lot of prevaricating Americans quickly became evident and the Sudanese showed that, while Americans may not have the courage to toss out their own liars and thieves, they had no reason to be so tolerant.
As part of a nationwide campaign, ACLU activists are hitting the streets to draw attention to the kinds of private information the government can demand under the Patriot Act, without any prior judicial review.
The lawsuit of 2002 that this guy files against Al-Arian--the Tampa, FL 9-11 cell connection--is most interesting. Why is it interesting?
Well, because Bush is hard and fast friends with Al-Arain, who has
Why settle for treasonous Rove? Get treasonous Bush, who meets with Al-Arian who is currently in federal prison awaiting trial for terrorism connections to 9-11. Bush is conversing with his family merely one month before 9-11; terrorist Al-Arian scheduled to meet in the White House with VP Cheney, though Cheney cancels the meeting.

New Biscuit Blockade Shuts Down Full Day Of Logging Activity!
Wednesday morning, just 72 hours after law enforcement dismantled the log cabin fortress that launched the Siskiyou Free State in Southern Oregon- dedicated forest defenders worked through the night to reconstruct a bigger, better-fortified version of the blockade. When the feds arrived at the Hobson old growth reserve timber sale this morning, they encountered an intricate lockdown scenario that foiled their efforts at extraction for the entire day.

the gentle art of judo, my friends
Over time, through my studies of political science, current events and world history, I have come to realize that which moves the world is not entirely ideas, but usually the control of currency, trading routes, resources, geography, and masses of people themselves via clever manipulation. Ideology and politics can be found, in the course of human events, to be nothing more than a marketing scheme - with guns.

BOYCOTT NEWS CORP!!!!
Fox News is buying Myspace.com for $580 million. Does this surprise me? No. As much as I think Myspace and Friendster can be ridiculous because people focus on "friend collecting", It's a good way to spread information to your friends. Fox News buying them out is absurd. We need to make sure we boycott News Corp. and tell our friends and family to do the same. Also tell Tom who owns myspace.com to not sell out. http://www.myspace.com/tom
Below is a list of companies that News Corp. owns. Raise your fists and say NO MORE FOX NEWS!!! No More News Corp.!!!!! Here is a little image that is being passed around on myspace and people are encouraged to put it up on their webpages. Play with it and pass it along.
I have a theory. Contrary to what David Horowitz(or anne coulter) might think, Kurt Nimmo did not do it.
Late in the session Representatives Dalto, Greenlick, Senators Bates and Westlund proposed HB 3500, a referral to voters to increase tobacco taxes by 60 cents to provide health care for all children and increase funding for OHP-Standard. The lofty and laudable goals of the referral would be to:
The public comment period for the proposed inmate telephone rules change at ODOC has been extended to August 8. We need to keep going with this and calling, phoning, emaling and faxing. The people who have called already should write a letter. If you have written a letter and email, write another one and use different info. We need persistent and constant pressure on this. They need to know we are watching.
Our struggle is not over. Olympia Pizza Time is set to reopen in mid-July under new ownership. The new owners refuse to meet with the striking workers. The striking workers are asking the new owners to recognize the Olympia Workers Association to begin union negotiations. On July 14th, the Olympia Pizza Time strike will enter the 5th month and community support is needed to send a clear message to the new owners.
Pizza Time workers may be forced to make another stand for workers' rights and decent work conditions. We will maintain a picket line in front of Pizza Time until our union is recognized. We urge the community of Olympia to stand in support of worker's rights and buy their pizza elsewhere until Pizza Time becomes a socially responsible business.

It's bad enough that the slippery Neocons got the U.S. involved in the Iraqi War, now those scoundrels want us to attack Iran! The unindicted war criminal, Henry Kissinger, suggested that we take Iran down, if certain conditions were fulfilled. Thanks to the compelling "Downing St. Memos," and the splendid work of Think Tanks, like the IRmep, it has become clearer that the conniving Neocons have used the U.S. as a chump!

Your daily dose of comic relief
Today Bush says he will fire for convictions, not mere leaks. The consensus of lawyers is that Karl Rove will be indicted in the Valerie Plame outing case -- and not for what you think. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald appears to have a slam-dunk case under Title 18, Sec. 641, USC (which is NOT about outing a covert agent) just as the DOJ did for leaker Jonathan Randel, who got a year in prison. Karl Rove was abandoned by both of his parents -- the man he called Dad left home, Rove found out "Dad" wasn't his father after all (his aunt and uncle "outed" this at the dinner table), and his mother committed suicide.
Nobody could have predicted 1967 in 1966. It seemed to come out of the clear blue sky. But it didn't. It had been germinating for a long, long time. And there is no reason to think that if we couldn't see it coming in 1966 that we would see it coming now.

The biggest difference between a Capitalist Society and a Free Market one is the ability of corporations to lobby the government to hedge their respective competition out of business. This is the very foundation of a Krytocracy, a government ruled by Judges who are appointed rather than elected by the people. And as such, legislature toward ousting ones competition is a cottage industry under the Bush Regime, which is in itself a "Mobocracy", exhibiting the tendencies of a Republic without having to be accountable to the people.

When news about violent deaths at the hands of the occupying army become a normal daily event, when the crimes committed by the Israeli army -- the invasions, roadblocks, and other military violations become so commonplace that most news agencies just choose to ignore them, rather than report each one...
