The Writing on the Wall Series #29: The Day of Reckoning for the Demonic Presidency is Coming Fast
LOTS of things came to my attention since I sent you a compilation last week. In fact, this is definitely the largest compilation (57 pages!) I ever emailed you and as usual this barely scratches the surface of all there is to explore through this compilation which provides you with 112 links!
And the "worst" part (I'm laughing here) is that I also have a Green Holocaust compilation and a Light Series compilation in preparation coming your way by the end of this week. It took me quite a bit of time to read, prepare and archive the material for this one, and yet I cannot think of any article or contribution from some of you that could be dispensed with here. I won't add any more personal comments although much of what's below would certainly deserve extensive comments.
Please help bring this compilation and networking service to the attention of others as a contribution to global awakening and spiritual unification as One with all Life, our only way ahead beyond the challenges of these most interesting times.

"Bombing Iraq will spread democracy throughout the Muslim world".
- George W. Bush, Feb. 26, 2003
"Supported by a barrage of media propaganda, these repeated terror alerts have created an environment of fear and intimidation, a wait and accept attitude, a false normality. US citizens are led to believe that a military solution is required to protect democracy. In other words, the possibility of an impending attack on America by this "outside enemy" has been accepted by the American public; this tacit acceptance has set the stage for the adoption of "the highest threat level": code red alert. What the US public is not aware of is that a code red alert suspends civilian government, it triggers a whole series of emergency procedures. It is tantamount to a Coup d'Etat. "

"Earth will not permit more desecration to her population in any life form or to her planetary body. Ages-old as well as recent United States policies and activities hold forth only the promise of more of these happenings, and this will NOT be allowed to continue. Restoration and preservation within higher frequencies is Earth's choice, and in accordance with this, her constant high light assistants within, on and beyond the planet are revving up to end actions to initiate or prolong wars, oppression, diseases, environmental destruction, erosion of human rights, and the negativity that these create. This means that the kind of governing that has caused and perpetuated these conditions anywhere must end."

Stop the Genocide in Sudan: It's Now or Never
We Can Save 600,000 People If We Act Now Genocide is underway in Sudan. The contrast in our government's response to Sudan and Iraq is striking. Bush was willing to buck the United Nations and spend $200 billion to invade Iraq (most recently for humanitarian reasons). "The Janjuweed arrived and asked me to leave the place. They beat women and small children. They killed a little girl, Sara Bishara. She was two years old. She was knifed in her back." - Aisha Ali, in North Darfur, reported by Amnesty International Now, for a few hundred million dollars and little risk to our armed forces, we really can stop a government from slaughtering a million of its own people. Instead, the Bush administration has ducked the issue by refusing to call it genocide. Why? Because the United States is party to a treaty that would force us to take strong action if they did. Now a bipartisan push is taking hold in Congress to call this genocide and get our government to act. The House resolution (H. Con. Res. 467) is moving quickly, and a vote may come as quickly as next week. In the Senate, Sen. Brownback (R-KS) and Sen. Corzine (D-NJ) have just introduced a resolution (S. Con. Res. 124) that would also call this genocide and require strong action. CLIP -Read the rest above and participate to this excellent initiative through the URL above.

Remain Calm! (Parody of terrorist "Alerts" by Tom Ridge)
Enemies by Design - Inventing the War on Terrorism
(...) To bomb Afghanistan, one of the world's poorest countries, over pipeline transit rights was politically indefensible. To invade Iraq because Israel wanted to destroy a major supporter of the Palestinians was also impossible to justify. The White House couldn't be seen to be the tool of Big Oil or of a foreign power, but if these or other target countries could be portrayed as "terrorist states" or "terrorist-sponsoring states," Congress and the American people could accept unilateral aggression, or at least not have the courage to challenge it. Thus we had the demonization of bin Laden and Hussein, slandering of Islam, racial profiling; and arbitrary arrests of Arabs and Muslims. (...) Over the past half-century, especially the last 25 years, Christian and Jewish Zionists used this extra-governmental structure to become, in essence, the real government. The shadowy cabal at the Council on National Policy epitomizes Leo Strauss's elite economic governing class imposing a moral order on society.

Sailing Toward a Storm in China - U.S. maneuvers could spark a war (July 15, 2004)
"Los Angeles Times" -- Quietly and with minimal coverage in the U.S. press, the Navy announced that from mid-July through August it would hold exercises dubbed Operation Summer Pulse '04 in waters off the China coast near Taiwan. This will be the first time in U.S. naval history that seven of our 12 carrier strike groups deploy in one place at the same time. It will look like the peacetime equivalent of the Normandy landings and may well end in a disaster. At a minimum, a single carrier strike group includes the aircraft carrier itself (usually with nine or 10 squadrons and a total of about 85 aircraft), a guided missile cruiser, two guided missile destroyers, an attack submarine and a combination ammunition, oiler and supply ship.Normally, the United States uses only one or at the most two carrier strike groups to show the flag in a trouble spot. In a combat situation it might deploy three or four, as it did for both wars with Iraq. Seven in one place is unheard of. Operation Summer Pulse '04 was almost surely dreamed up at the Pearl Harbor headquarters of the U.S. Pacific Command and its commander, Adm. Thomas B. Fargo, and endorsed by neocons in the Pentagon. It is doubtful that Congress was consulted. This only goes to show that our foreign policy is increasingly made by the Pentagon.According to Chinese reports, Taiwanese ships will join the seven carriers being assembled in this modern rerun of 19th century gunboat diplomacy. The ostensible reason given by the Navy for this exercise is to demonstrate the ability to concentrate massive forces in an emergency, but the focus on China in a U.S. election year sounds like a last hurrah of the neocons. Needless to say, the Chinese are not amused. They say that their naval and air forces, plus their land-based rockets, are capable of taking on one or two carrier strike groups but that combat with seven would overwhelm them. So even before a carrier reaches the Taiwan Strait, Beijing has announced it will embark on a crash project that will enable it to meet and defeat seven U.S. carrier strike groups within a decade. There's every chance the Chinese will succeed if they are not overtaken by war first. CLIP - WHAT ARE THEY REALLY UP TO THERE?...

Pentagon Now Wants to Deploy Troops to Nigeria and Niger
This week, under the cover of Bush's intentionally disruptive gay marriage debate, the administration has been moving troops into two of the world's biggest "oil zones": the Pacific in Southeast Asia and now is laying plans to move troops off the coast of Nigeria, beyond which lies Niger. The US is now also quietly working with the Niger military to send "peacekeeping" troops into the Niger Delta. What is in the Niger Delta? Yellowcake uranium - needed for Bush's nuclear ambitions. Bush's ambassador in Nigeria, meanwhile, is holding meetings this week on Bush's intention to deploy troops to the Gulf of Guinea, off Nigeria's coast. Nigeria is Africa's number one oil producer.

Terrorism and the election (July 15 - A scary election-fraud scenario!)
No postponement, just bedlam at the polls and a low turnout on the West Coast is Bush's plan for 'victory': You have to give the right-wingers credit. The fear tactics they learned from arch-Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels remain at the front of their political playbook. First, they put out the notion that in the event of a terrorist attack around the time of the November 2 election, a postponement of the vote may be necessary. Second, they start talking about the federal government's response to such a scenario. It's the second item we must all be focused upon. (...) The right wing had a different take on the possibility of an election postponement. Neo-fascist babble mongers like Rush Limbaugh said, "No!" to a postponement of the election. They argued that if a terrorist alert or attack were to occur, the election should go on and only those votes cast should be counted. Bingo! The plan for a second Bush administration became clear as day. And that plan's target is California, with its whopping 54 electoral votes, and possibly Washington State's 11 electoral votes, at stake. CLIP
Accused Mass-Murderer Became President (July 15 - see note below)
The following is an item from Sunnyvale Ca. from the 2000 election. "SUNNYVALE, CA - Telling reporters and critics to 'stick to the issues that matter', Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush declined to answer questions Monday concerning his alleged involvement in a 1984 Brownsville, TX, mass murder, in which 17 people were ritualistically murdered and skinned. 'I will not stoop to discussing that,' said Bush during a campaign stop at a Bay Area software-packaging plant. 'We've got people across this country without health care, a broken educational system, taxes that are way too high, and all you want to talk about is something THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE HAPPENED 16 years ago? I'm sorry, but I find that offensive.' " (Emphasis added). Bush, the son of a billionaire, was strangely living in the most impoverished place in America, Brownsville; living nearby to and also inside the headquarters of a Satanic Cult of which he was a member. Bush disappeared for three days during which ALL of the other of his fellow Cult Members were slaughtered. After he reappeared he could not explain where he had been. The local prosecutor continued to pursue Bush, sole Cult survivor, on mass murder charges for six months thereafter, heavily pressured by Daddy Bush to stop the investigation. For asking these questions the reporters were threatened with reprisals later by Bush and thereafter have feared for their life. Currently, as to 2004, Bush and Kerry have long been members of a Satanic Cult, Skull & Bones (Yale). CLIP - NOTE: This article contains details too gory for full exposure here...

Senior Sunni Cleric Calls for Holy War against U.S. Forces in Iraq (16 July 2004)
Ramadi, Iraq - A senior Sunni cleric called on his followers to launch a holy war against the US forces in Iraq and threatened to turn the hotspot city of Ramadi into a "graveyard" for American troops. "I ask US President (George W.) Bush to withdraw from Iraq or else Ramadi will become a graveyard for US soldiers," declared Sheikh Akram Ubayed Furaih at weekly prayers in the city, 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of Baghdad. "I call upon my brothers the Shiites and on all other religious groups to embark on a Jihad (holy war) against the US military to force them out of Iraq," said the cleric, who spent three months in a prison after being arrested by the US military and whose home was also raided last week. "I urge all the Iraqi people to fight a holy war against the Americans," said the cleric, among the most respected figures in this Sunni rebel bastion in the heart of Al-Anbar province. Using slightly more moderate tones, two other Sunni clerics from the Muslim Scholars' Association spoke out against conditions in military detention centres run by the US-led coalition. "We have received messages from inmates at Um Qasr (detention centre on the border with Kuwait) describing their suffering during this hot weather," said Ahmed Abdel Gafur Samarrai, addressing a crowd at the Um al-Qura mosque in Baghdad. He called on the United Nations to intervene on behalf of the detainees. "The United Nations must do something because it granted a legitimacy to the occupation, but this legitimacy has been lost due to the actions that have taken place," said Samarrai in reference to the thousands of Iraqis locked away on suspicion of involvement in the persistent insurgency that dogged the 14-month US-led occupation. In another Sunni mosque in the capital, Shiek Hassan Samarrai took the same line of criticism. Both clerics made reference to a protest sit-in organised by the Iraqi Islamic Party at the doors of the detention centre in Um Qasr.
Iraq government to help decide on 5,200 detainees, most held without trial (16 July 2004)
CAMP BUCCA, Iraq (AFP) - Representatives of Iraq's caretaker government will sit on a board that is reviewing the status of the estimated 5,200 detainees held largely without trial by US-led forces, a senior US commander said. (...) Continuing detention without trial of thousands of prisoners, even before a scandal erupted at Abu Ghraib prison where detainees were sexually humiliated and abused by US troops, has brought regular protests from Iraqis demanding the release of their loved ones. On Friday, outside Umm Qasr detention centre, two kilometres (one mile) from Camp Bucca, around 1,000 Iraqis held a sit-in to push for the release of those held mostly without charge or trial. Women and children braved the summer heat, with some holding posters proclaiming: "We are with you, innocent brothers," and: "All Iraqis demand the liberation of the prisoners". The protestors handed out a statement demanding access to detainees by the International Committee of the Red Cross and the human rights group Amnesty International, and respect for the Geneva Convention on treatment of civilians in time of war. Only around 40 detainees of the over 5,000 held by the US-led coalition have so far been tried. The remainder have yet to have their cases decided. CLIP
Torturing Children (20 July 2004)
The biggest story of the Iraq war is not about missing weapons of mass destruction, or about deep-cover CIA officers getting their covers blown by vengeful White House agents, or even about 896 dead American soldiers. These have been covered to one degree or another, and then summarily dismissed, by the American mainstream news media. The biggest story of the Iraq war has not enjoyed any coverage in America, though it has been exploding across the international news media for several weeks now. The biggest story of the Iraq war is about the torture of Iraqi children. A German TV magazine called 'Report Mainz' recently aired accusations from the International Red Cross, to the effect that over 100 children are imprisoned in U.S.- controlled detention centers, including Abu Ghraib. "Between January and May of this year, we've registered 107 children, during 19 visits in 6 different detention locations," said Red Cross representative Florian Westphal in the report. The report also outlined eyewitness testimony of the abuse of these children. CLIP
NEW CLAIMS OF SERIOUS ABUSES AT ABU GHRAIB SURFACE
Leading investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has told the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that videotapes were made of young boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib prison. The Bush administration is holding videotapes of these acts, said Hersh, a regular contributor to the New Yorker and other publications and who spoke this week at the ACLUs annual membership conference."The worst is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking," Hersh told the group,adding that there was "a massive amount of criminal wrongdoing that was covered up at the highest command out there, and higher." President Bush has claimed that the prison abuse scandal in Iraq was just"conduct by a few American troops." But new reports of abuse provide evidence that the controversial intimidation tactics and inhuman treatment may have been approved at the highest levels of government. Congress is continuing to investigate the scandal. Hershs latest information comes on the heels of a newly released 2002 Pentagon memo detailing that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld personally authorized the use of controversial prisoner interrogation tactics, including the use of dogs for intimidation, stripping prisoners of clothes and hooding them. Rumsfeld also ordered military officials to hold prisoners but not list them on prisoner rolls requested by the International Red Cross. And according to Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, who was the head of detention operations at Abu Ghraib, Rumsfeld "approved tactics at the prison" directly. As Newsweek reports, these memos and orders were signed off on by Rumsfeld, President Bush and Attorney General John Ashcroft and were part of a "secret system of detention and interrogation that opened the door to such methods" of abuse as seen in Iraq.

Allawi shot inmates in cold blood, say witnesses (July 17, 2004)
(Sidney Morning Herald) Iyad Allawi, the new Prime Minister of Iraq, pulled a pistol and executed as many as six suspected insurgents at a Baghdad police station, just days before Washington handed control of the country to his interim government, according to two people who allege they witnessed the killings. They say the prisoners - handcuffed and blindfolded - were lined up against a wall in a courtyard adjacent to the maximum-security cell block in which they were held at the Al-Amariyah security centre, in the city's south-western suburbs. They say Dr Allawi told onlookers the victims had each killed as many as 50 Iraqis and they "deserved worse than death". The Prime Minister's office has denied the entirety of the witness accounts in a written statement to the Herald, saying Dr Allawi had never visited the centre and he did not carry a gun. But the informants told the Herald that Dr Allawi shot each young man in the head as about a dozen Iraqi policemen and four Americans from the Prime Minister's personal security team watched in stunned silence. (...) Given Dr Allawi's role as the leader of the US experiment in planting a model democracy in the Middle East, allegations of a return to the cold-blooded tactics of his predecessor are likely to stir a simmering debate on how well Washington knows its man in Baghdad, and precisely what he envisages for the new Iraq. There is much debate and rumour in Baghdad about the Prime Minister's capacity for brutality, but this is the first time eyewitness accounts have been obtained. A former CIA officer, Vincent Cannisatraro, recently told The New Yorker: "If you're asking me if Allawi has blood on his hands from his days in London, the answer is yes, he does. He was a paid Mukhabarat [intelligence] agent for the Iraqis, and he was involved in dirty stuff." CLIP

VOTERS REJECT BLAIR AGAIN (16 Jul 2004)
Two more by-elections in safe Labour seats, one lost one nearly lost. Two more disasters for Blair, with the worst swing recorded against labour for over fifty years. How fortunate for New Labour that the BBC, which only dares to whisper criticisms of the Blair mafia nowadays, barely mentioned the existence of the by-elections until voting had finished. On voting day they devoted the valuable 7.55 am slot on Today, the nation's most influential news programme, to a senior general repeating - unchallenged - a string of Blairite lies about the war, even including the alleged French veto which turned out to be a `translation error`. (...) What a `systemic failure` it's been. Butler describes how a paid Iraqi stooge in London (promoted to be the current puppet Iraqi Prime Minister)said that someone told him an Iraqi officer had told them Iraq had some chemical shells. Pro-Blair newspapers screamed out headlines like `45 minutes from doom`. When MI6 checked this after the invasion, the original`source` denied he had said anything, but no-one in the Blair mafia told the Parliamentary enquiry or the Hutton enquiry. (...) The Iraq war scandal and Blair's ruthless fight for survival has exposed the true nature of the elective dictatorship that goes as democracy in the UK. Here's how it works: you get a vote every four years but the main alternatives have been nobbled and it's virtually impossible to start a new party unless you are a multi millionaire with friends in high places.
US public's anger over war rises (July 18, 2004)
A majority of Americans feels for the first time that their country should have stayed out of Iraq, a poll published yesterday reveals, writes Paul Harris in Washington. Public anger with the war has deepened over the casualty rate among US soldiers in Iraq. The news will be a boost to the Democrat challenger, John Kerry, as the bloody conflict in Iraq continues to undermine the campaign of President George Bush. The CBS/New York Times poll showed that 51 per cent think the US should have stayed out of Iraq, up from 46 per cent last month. It also said that 62 per cent believed the war was not worth the loss of American lives. Previous polls had consistently shown Bush scoring higher on issues of national security. But the new poll shows that the gap between the two sides may be narrowing or even reversing.

Freed Swede Says Was Tortured at Guantanamo (14 Jul 2004)
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swede released from Guantanamo Bay last week said he had been tortured by exposure to freezing cold, noise and bright lights and chained during his 2-1/2-year imprisonment.Mehdi Ghezali, the son of an Algerian-born immigrant, told Swedish media in interviews published or aired Wednesday that he was interrogated almost every day at the U.S. naval base on Cuban soil. The 25-year-old man, who was arrested in Pakistan where he says he was studying Islam, was released on July 8 after pressure from Sweden.Ghezali told Dagens Nyheter daily and Swedish public radio he had cooperated for the first six months but stopped talking when his interrogators kept asking the same questions. In April the military changed their tactics, he said. "They put me in the interrogation room and used it as a refrigerator. They set the temperature to minus degrees so it was terribly cold and one had to freeze there for many hours -- 12 to 14 hours one had to sit there, chained," he said, adding that he had partially lost the feeling in one foot since then. Ghezali said he was also deprived of sleep, chained for long periods in painful positions, and exposed to bright flashes of light in a darkened room and loud music and noise." They forced me down with chained feet. Then they took away the chains from the hands, pulled the arms under the legs and chained them hard again. I could not move," he said. After several hours his feet were swollen and his whole body was aching. "The worst was in the back and the legs," he said.Ghezali said he went Pakistan to study Islam in August 2001, before the September 11 attacks which triggered President Bush's war on terrorism and the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan. He said he was visiting a friend in the Afghan town of Jalalabad near the Pakistani border when the U.S. invasion started. He decided to return to Pakistan when he heard that villagers were selling foreigners to U.S. forces. Pakistani villagers seized him as crossed the border from Afghanistan and sold him to Pakistani police, who turned him over to the U.S. military. He was flown from Pakistan to Afghanistan and arrived in Guantanamo in January 2002, he said. He was released from Guantanamo on July 8 because he was no longer considered a threat to the United States.

U.S. Can Help End Darfur Genocide (15 July 2004)
The time is long overdue, but not too late, to stop the active genocide in Sudan. What can we do as Americans? The Darfur region of Sudan is in flames. For nearly two years cynical leaders in Khartoum have been seeking to enhance their power by using the country's armed forces and local militia to suppress the local non-Arab population. They have driven a million and a half people from their homes, holding them in concentration camps and denying them access to adequate food, water, and shelter. More than 30,000 have been killed, and a range of crimes against humanity have been committed, including the mass rape of women and the systematic destruction of villages, livestock, and crops. If nothing is done, US officials predict that 350,000 people could be dead of starvation, disease, or murder by the end of this year. Does all this sound familiar? Yes - it also happened in Rwanda, Bosnia, and Kosovo. An international convention drafted in 1948 after the Holocaust and ratified by the United States and other countries commits the world "to undertake to prevent" the crime of genocide. Shamefully, in Rwanda that commitment rang hollow in 1994 when 800,000 people were slaughtered in less than three months. In Bosnia and Kosovo the lesson of Rwanda was remembered, although too late for many victims. Intensive diplomatic and military efforts were organized within a UN framework by the United States and other countries in 1995 and 1999. These efforts saved hundreds of thousands of lives and established under international law a new doctrine of humanitarian intervention to stop a genocide in progress. What can Americans do to save lives in Sudan? CLIP
U.S. Treasury Says Likely to Hit Debt Limit in October (14 July 2004)
Washington - The U.S. government will likely reach its federal debt limit in early October, a top Treasury official said in written remarks, giving fresh details on when the politically sensitive ceiling will need to be raised. The $7.384 trillion debt limit may need attention before the November election, Timothy Bitsberger, Treasury's nominee for assistant secretary for financial markets, said in a document obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

Elton attacks 'censorship' in US
Elton John has said stars are scared to speak out against war in Iraq because of "bullying tactics" used by the US government to hinder free speech. "There's an atmosphere of fear in America right now that is deadly. Everyone is too career-conscious," he told New York magazine, Interview. Sir Elton said performers could be "frightened by the current administration's bullying tactics". The singer likened the current "fear factor" to McCarthyism in the 1950s."There was a moment about a year ago when you couldn't say a word about anything in this country for fear of your career being shot down by people saying you are un-American," he told the magazine. The singer said things were different in the 1960s." People like Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, The Beatles and Pete Seeger were constantly writing and talking about what was going on.Backlash"That's not happening now. As of this spring, there have been virtually no anti-war concerts - or anti-war songs that catch on, for that matter," he said. He voiced concern that it appeared acceptable to speak out if you were pro-Bush, using the example of country singer Toby Keith, but not if you were critical of the President, as in the case of country rock band, the Dixie Chicks."On the one hand, you have someone like Toby Keith, who has come out and been very supportive of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq - which is OK because America is a democracy and Toby Keith is entitled to say what he thinks and feels."But, on the other hand, the Dixie Chicks got shot down in flames last year for criticising the president. They were treated like they were being un-American, when in fact they have every right to say whatever they want about him because he's freely elected, and therefore accountable." Sir Elton is currently in New York playing a series of concerts.

Have you forgotten - the thinking in Washington is that global warming is caused simply by overpopulation? Therefore, it has been the plan for a very very long time to "cull" the population of the earth down - last estimate I heard was by approximately 2/3. Simply kill us off - simple as that!
If you are able and are not one of the bible belt's rednecked deep south fundamentalists that I run into so often here in the area I have been living (North Carolina is smack in the bible belt as well as Arkansas - it literally runs across the country) try to obtain a copy of Gary Renard's The Disappearance of the Universe. It will enlighten you as well as give you some small measure of peace. It will also show you the quickest path to ascension and HOME - where we never left in the first place!!! You will learn that no matter what you see around you and feel inside of you - NONE of this is real. I won't go into it any further, but if you can get the book, do so. I am still trying to let go of all the preconceived, drummed into my head beliefs about all of this, but when I finally manage to remember and let go of the anger and sorrow, what extraordinary peace comes over me. If you don't find the book in the major bookstores (where the publisher told me it was headed) you can get it directly from the publisher D. Patrick Miller (we're on a first name basis now since I have bought so many of the books to give to my children and friends), http://www.fearlessbooks.com You can also read a bit more about the book there, as well.
I wish you peace and calmness - the news is horrible, but we SHALL prevail.
Blessings and Love,
How deep into space must humans go before they look back

NOTE FROM JEAN: Here is what I found at http://www.fearlessbooks.com/Disappearance.htm
Heres the book youve heard so much about or soon will! WHAT WOULD YOU DO if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple appeared from out of nowhere and then told you they were ascended masters who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza? When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them (and ask a lot of impertinent questions). The result is this startling book: an extraordinary record of 17 mind-bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the authors life and giving the world an uncompromising perspective on A Course in Miracles a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.

Subject: A view on Despair
Date:14 Jul 2004
Dear Jean, friend and light-mate,
I have been on your mailing list for more than a year now, and always am eager to read your many-faceted compilations.
My practical reason for keeping the 'silent' approach was more a matter of heart than head, being sometimes feeling the desire to contribute some of my views on Life, but my 'head' telling me that you had more important things to do than reading a few humble thoughts from a fellow-wanderer. This, I must admit, was a judgment on my part on both myself and an image I had constructed of you as somewhat of an 'authority of the earth rainbow network'. Like, who did I think I was, intruding upon someone apparently doing much more than me for the evolution of Spirit.
I am now happy to say that I'm deciding to follow my Heart.
When I read the introduction to your last veracity series #10, I felt a chill of sadness when you mentioned that you were almost despairing about the survival of our race on the third dimension, this was my cue to write my feelings without listening to my head for once. I submit these few words to your discerning mind, needless to say they are freely offered with no obligation on your part.
A View on Despair.
Throughout this period of awareness I call my life, I have traveled the seesaw road between faith and despair, some days riding on the wave of high enthusiasm and sunshiny certainty of bright futures opening up with Love, Light, Freedom and Happiness for all mankind (myself included!) and other times, my heart (ego-heart?) just plain sank to the bottom of the dank and dark pit of no-hope for anyone.
Until very recently, this up and down occurrence followed it's seemingly unending course, so much so that I had almost taken it for granted. At this precise moment, when I began to accept it as a kind of 'Law of the Cosmos', a spark lit up inside of me, oh so very tenuous at the beginning but becoming more and more brilliant as I looked more and more into this acceptance of the duality of experiencing of this third-dimensionality of Life.
'What if this plus and minus flow was the basic building-block of energy on this plane of existence? What if the learning we are doing in this plane of existence needed this flow as a way to synthesize, to balance the Spirit and move on to other planes?
The more I looked at it, the more I could feel the building up of energy inside of me. I begun to take a look and meditate intuitively on any and all events occurring in this three-D, and, Lo and Behold, "learning-to-make-choices" was the concept that came to the surface as a bell-clear, crystal-pure insight!
We are here to learn to make choices, this is why we have so many events to choose from, so may 'incidents' of all types, shapes and form. This is, after all, the freedom-of-choice dimension, where we finally, if we so desire change the paradigm from dark to light, from suffering to well-being, from separation to One.
So now, whenever some emotion tugs at my heart-strings, be it plus or minus, I enthusiastically thank All That Is for granting me the opportunity to examine some of my surfacing issues, so I can truly make decisions concerning my future path.
Despair is only the dark side of trust, it shows up whenever we need to remember what we really believe in, so we can once again take a look into ourselves and review or renew our choices.
So I now bless despair, anger, judgment, blame, sadness and pain as much as I do trust, love, non-judgment, unconditional compassion, happiness and well-being.
My heart tells me that balance is my new Path.

Subject: There Is No Alternative
1. The Democrats offer no real alternative to the Republicans in terms of the all-important issue of international policy. They have become a war party that is even more interventionist than the Republicans. (See the article by Joshua Marshall in this months Atlantic Monthly.)
2. We are seeing an anti-war movement developing in the country with no serious expression at the political level. But because of the hatred of Bush, the liberal-left by and large is essentially supporting a Democratic war candidate.
3. Edwards' populism is a distraction from the fact that in terms of war policy the Democrats offer more of the same. Any improvements the Democrats offer on the domestic front are far more rhetoric than substance. Everyone on the liberal-left knows that there are no significant solution here, and yet we continue to play into the great deception that is being foisted on the American people.
4. There are third parties that offer alternatives, but the electoral system is controlled by money and so is rigged against them from the start. Not only is the electoral system controlled by money, but it is also vulnerable to all kinds of fraud, as the public knows from the 2000 election. Electoral reforms involving computerization are no solution, but make the possibility of fraud even greater. To support a third party at this point is deliberately to overlook these facts, and so to give credence to an electoral system that we all know is corrupt. Third parties are engaged in a performative contradiction when they protest the unfairness of the system and yet encourage people to participate in it by voting for them. Again, we all know this, and yet we continue to play into a game of deception against the American people.
4. But in fact the American people instinctively know all of this. That's why getting people to vote is like pulling teeth. It's good for you we say. But people stay away in great droves. They are saying no to the whole system because they do not believe in it. And yet the liberal-left, which agrees that the system stinks and understands why this is so, keeps telling them, by our practice, that the system works.
5. This leads to the rational as well as the revolutionary conclusion that There Is No Alternative, and there won't be any until there is a fundamental change in the way elections take place in the US. The liberal-left needs to say this loud and clear. This is what people want to hear: The system is corrupt -- we need to fix it. Meanwhile, LET'S JOIN THE BOYCOTT - LET'S LEAD IT by giving clear, cogent reasons for why the majority of the majority of the American people are taking a pass.
6. Kerry is going to win this one because he he will more effectively pursue the goals of the Bush administration and the people behind it. Recall the devastating scene in Fahrenheit 9/11 when Bush is reading fairy tales to grade school children while America is burning. The dark secret has come to the light: he is waiting for his bosses to tell him what to do. What is missing is what Kerry was doing at that same moment: waiting to be given his marching orders by those same bosses.
7. The dialectic of history is giving us a great opportunity. We don't have to worry about contributing to the re-election of Bush, and can move on to the next stage of the process now: exposing the pseudo-alternative proposed by Kerry, and so showing the corruption of a political system that gives us no alternative. Before we pretend to show other people how to have democracy, we should start by creating it in our own country.
All the best,
Note from Jean: Is there anyone else interested to make a suggestion as to how we could empower all those who are dissatisfied with the (current) foreseeable outcome of the November 2 elections in the US?...
Media suppresses news of Bushs moves to cancel US elections
By Kate Randall and Barry Grey
14 July 2004
The American media has barely reported the revelation, first made public on Sunday by Newsweek magazine, that the Bush administration initiated discussions on the legal issues involved in postponing the 2004 elections. Both the broadcast and print media have treated this unprecedented threat to democratic rights as a minor story, meriting only the most perfunctory reportage and no editorial comment.
In this effort to keep the American people in the dark, the press has been aided by the Democratic Party, whose presidential candidate, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, has issued no statement on the question. Nor has the Democratic National Committee, or any other official body of the Democratic Party, publicly spoken out on Bush administration moves to subvert the electionsan action that would signal the abrogation of the US Constitution and establishment of de facto dictatorial rule.
According to the scattered press reports that have appeared, the chairman of the Election Assistance Commission, DeForest Soaries, sent a letter on June 25 to Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge suggesting that the November election might be cancelled in the event of a terrorist attack, and urging Ridge to seek legal advice on such a move from the Justice Department. According to Newsweek and other press sources, Ridge then requested a detailed legal analysis from the Justice Departments Office of Legal Counsel.
On Monday, Soaries sent a letter to the Republican and Democratic leaders of both houses of Congress broaching the question of postponing the elections. He also sent copies of his June 25 letter to Ridge.
Since the news of these moves broke over the weekend, various Bush administration officials, including spokesmen for the Homeland Security Department and Soaries himself, have made statements downplaying internal discussions on suspending the elections. However, these statements do not, for the most part, directly deny that steps have been taken to postpone or cancel the elections on the pretext of an impending or actual terrorist attack.
On the contrary, some administration officials have suggested that individual states could close down the elections, or instruct state legislatures to directly appoint the electors who officially cast the votes in the Electoral College for US president and vice president. The latter course would strip the states population of the right to vote for president.
This proposal is a revival of the position taken by the Bush campaign and the Republican Party, and endorsed by the right-wing faction on the US Supreme Court, during the 10-week crisis over the disputed outcome of the 2000 election in Florida. At that time, the Republicans declared that if a vote recount in the pivotal state went against Bush, the Republican-controlled Florida legislature would disregard the popular vote and appoint pro-Bush electors. In the event, the Supreme Court intervened to halt the recount and install Bush in the White House.
While Soaries, following a Tuesday hearing in Washington of his commission, told reporters he cant conceive of any circumstances under which a presidential election could be postponed or canceled, one of his commissioners, Ray Martinez, said he believed the Constitution gave states the power to reschedule presidential elections or even appoint electors directly in case of emergency.
Soaries, moreover, said his commission planned to meet with officials of the Department of Homeland Security next week to discuss how to handle an election-day attack. He added that his commission was, according to a Reuters dispatch, gathering information from individual states to see if they had plans in place.
These statements raise the possibility that Republican-controlled states, with the approval of the Bush administration, could preempt voting in order to swing the national result in Bushs favor, or create sufficient chaos to subvert the election as a whole.
The meager reportage in the press of these unprecedented and anti-democratic maneuvers has highlighted the official disavowals of government officials, without providing any detailed information of the actual content of discussions within the Bush administration. The major newspapers have not even commented on glaring inconsistencies and contradictions in the statements of various government officials. The intended effect is to deny the seriousness of the threat to democratic rights.
Bush administration takes steps to cancel US election [13 July 2004]

Election Monitors to Prevent Another Stolen Election in 2004
To: George W. Bush
We call on you to request expert election monitors to avoid an unprecedented electoral - and Constitutional - crisis over the Presidential election of November 2, 2004. Such a request was made by 13 Members of Congress on July 1, 2004.
We saw a preview of this crisis in 2000 in Florida. We believe the 2004 crisis will be worse because:
Across the nation, error-prone punchcard machines have been replaced by touchscreen machines that have failed repeatedly in actual elections. These machines lack paper trails, their source code is proprietary, and computer security experts believe these machines are hackable, so voters have no confidence their votes will be recorded and counted honestly. To compound voter fears, Diebold CEO Wally O'Dell vowed to "deliver" Ohio's crucial electoral votes to you The crimes committed by partisan Florida election officials in 2000 were never punished, which sent a clear signal to partisan officials that they could violate election laws with impunity.
As the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights documented in 2001, discrimination against minorities - mostly Democrats - in 2000 was widespread. More than half of the votes that went uncounted nationwide were cast by minorities. Most of these problems were never fixed, as the Commission documented in April 2004.
Most of the Florida non-felons whose voting rights were illegally revoked in 2000 have not regained their voting rights, and the 2004 "felon" purge was rigged to hurt Democrats by removing black "felons" and help Republicans by overlooking Hispanic "felons." This revelation - following a lawsuit opposed by Florida - created a furor, but officials insist they will "find other ways" to purge "felons".
Also in Florida, Republicans eliminated the witness requirement for absentee ballots, creating a major opportunity for fraud. Republicans are tricking new citizens into registering as Republicans by illegally pre-checking the "Republican" box.
In Missouri, the Republican Secretary of State is trying to stop mainly Democratic voters in St. Louis from voting early There may be many other illegal activities underway at the state and local level that have simply not been discovered because no one is looking for them.
Key officials in your administration seek the power to postpone (or cancel) the 2004 election based on warnings of terrorist attacks, even though past warnings have been conspicuously politicized Pro-Republican bias in the corporate-owned media, especially at Fox News, has been widely documented, creating an uneven playing field for the campaign. This problem is compounded by the extremely limited coverage planned for the summer conventions.
All five Republican Supreme Court Justices who betrayed America by throwing out 175,000 uncounted votes in 2000 remain on the Court, so any dispute that ends up in the Supreme Court will lack legitimacy The American people share our concerns. A poll in June 2004 found 44% of all voters - and 62% of Democrats - fear a Florida-style debacle in November.
We believe observers who are experts in administering honest, transparent, and fair elections are needed for the "battleground" states (Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin) that will decide the Presidency. We call on you to request such experts from the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and the Carter Center.

Republicans Go Ballistic Over UN Monitors for Election 2004 http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/national/apwashington_story.asp?category=1153&slug=House%20Florida%20Fight
Think the passions from the 2000 presidential election have cooled? Certainly not in the House, which voted Thursday to strike a Florida representative's words from the record after she said Republicans 'stole' that closely fought contest. The verbal battle broke out after Rep. Steve Buyer, R-Ind., proposed a measure barring any federal official from requesting that the UN formally observe the U.S. elections on Nov. 2. His proposal was approved 243-161... Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla., and several other House Democrats have made that suggestion. They argue that some black voters were disenfranchised in 2000 and problems could occur again... 'I come from Florida, where you and others participated in what I call the United States coup d'etat. We need to make sure it doesn't happen again,' Brown said. 'Over and over again after the election when you stole the election, you came back here and said, 'Get over it.' No, we're not going to get over it. And we want verification from the world.'

Michael Moore Shills for Illuminati Bankers
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
July 04, 2004
"Fahrenheit 911" blames the Bushes and Saudis for 911 and Iraq to divert our attention from the real masterminds.
In assigning responsibility for the Iraq debacle, there is not a single mention of Israel or neo conservative Jews.
Yet last year Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper trumpeted: "The war in Iraq was conceived by neo conservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish...This is no longer an academic exercise, one of them says. We are responsible for what is happening."
The neo conservative intellectuals are agents of the Illuminati Rothschild banking cartel. Its goal is to integrate the Middle East into the "new world order" at the expense of the U.S. soldier and taxpayer. This is the true nature of "imperialism."
The Rothschild agents pulling Bush's strings included Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Eliot Abrams and Charles Krauthammer. Only Wolfowitz received passing attention in Moore's film in his capacity as a Republican.
Richard Perle and Douglas Feith were members of a Likud party think tank (http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4493638,00.html) that recommended in 1996 "Israel shape its strategic environment beginning with the removal of Sadaam Hussein."
The 9-11 attack was designed to mentally prepare Americans to be "shapers" of Israel's strategic environment in the Middle East. See also "The Zionist Roots of the War on Terror" (http://www.savethemales.ca/181102.html)
PROPAGANDA: THE ART OF HALF-TRUTH
Elite Zionists, whether neo con, liberal or leftist, control American perception as well as policy. This accounts for Michael Moore's wide distribution and publicity. You simply cannot be heard in the mainstream media unless you toe the Zionist line.
Despite his working class pose, Moore lives in a million-dollar Manhattan condo and sends his kids to private schools.
"Fahrenheit 911" wants you to believe the Saudis and the Bushes colluded to profit from war and oil. It shows that the Bushes and Bin Ladens had a long-term business relationship and the Saudis fund terrorism.
Moore fails to mention that Rothschild agent financier George Soros also bailed out George W. (Now Soros is out to defeat Bush see at http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2004/5/31/192555.shtml)
"Fahrenheit 911" pretends Osama bin Laden was responsible for the attack on the World Trade Center.
Moore doesn't mention evidence linking the attack to the Mossad, and elements of the CIA and FBI which all work for the Illuminst bankers.
He doesn't mention evidence "Saudi terrorists" are still alive, no passenger jet hit the pentagon, and the WTC collapse was a controlled demolition.
"Fahrenheit 911" indicates that George Jr. wasn't specifically told about the WTC attack in advance. The movie focuses for seven minutes on his reaction to the news. He is furious and seems to be thinking, "Those bastards screwed me."
To be effective, propaganda must contain an element of truth. War and oil profit was the payoff for Bush and his gang. In return, they will take the fall for the war's unpopularity.
911 and Iraq are about bigger stakes: the step-by-step enslavement of mankind. Although Bush tried to please the banksters, they want a new puppet, John Kerry, in November.
THE BANKSTER AGENDA
The Illuminist bankers are organizing a global fascist state that they can directly control. Of course this is being done in the name of freedom and human rights.
The revealing Haaretz article (http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/pages/ShArt.jhtml?itemNo=280279) is based on interviews with three neo con Jewish hacks, William Kristol, Charles Krauthammer and Thomas Friedman. The latter two write for the bankster-owned Washington Post and New York Times.
The article speaks of rebuilding the world "in the image of the United States." Their focus now is on the Middle East. Saudi Arabia seems to be their next target.
Krauthammer: " The war on Iraq is being fought to replace the demonic deal cut with the Arab world decades ago. That deal said: you will send us oil and we will not intervene with your internal affairs."
Translation: Rothschild/ Rockefeller are tired of giving Arabs such a large cut of the pie. They want direct control of Middle East oil.
Krauthammer: "If the victory is contaminated and slow it will be impossible to go on to the other Arab states after Iraq."
Translation: They want to undermine the independence of Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran and possibly even Egypt. When they're finished with the rest of the world, they will turn their attention to America.
Kristol: "And the way to fight chaos is to fight to create a new world order... So that, really is what this war is about. It is being fought to consolidate a new world order, to create a new Middle East."
Translation: Freeways, feminism, malls, prozac, pornography and taco bells. Cultural genocide.
William Kristol is the chairman of the "Project for a New American Century." For a detailed account of how America will reorganize the world for the Rothschilds, see the Web Site at http://www.newamericancentury.org/index.html
I actually enjoyed "Fahrenheit 911". Moore makes some effective points. He says elites use war to oppress the masses and retain power and this is correct. He shows how Black Congressmen opposed the Patriot Act but couldn't find the requisite one Senator to suport them. He follows some Marine recruiters in Flint MI and it is eerie to see impoverished youth enlisted to oppress other people.
The movie will politicize many people and that is good. Unfortunately it will make them Democrats. The Democratic Party is in the pocket of the Illuminati bankers.
The movie also makes people think free enterprise capitalism is to blame for war. It is not. The bankers hate free enterprise & competition. They want to control supply (through monopoly capitalism) and demand (through big government.) They want a total monopoly on power and wealth and use war to achieve it.
In "Fahrenheit 911" Michael Moore's job is to cover this up.
"Michael Moore and Richard Perle: Who Really Wants to Invade Saudi Arabia?"
(...) Michael Moores new film Fahrenheit 9/11 has done a tremendous favor for some proponents of a war upon the Arabian Peninsula. The film achieves what endless pages of conservative think-tank studies and panel discussions, hours of PR time and books can not: spill gasoline on the anti-Saudi sparks already ignited within the United States. Moore's film lambastes the Saudis not only for their business relationships but also for leaving the US after the attacks of September 11th 2001 as did other non-Saudi officials on the same day when specific flights were permitted. The overwhelming popularity of this documentary takes the anti-Saudi message to a whole new market. It is the latest manifestation of a rationale for war that could finally execute a long-term plan to invade and occupy the Kingdom. In spite of its progressive producer and target audience, Fahrenheit 9/11 falls lock-step in line with the stated agenda of neoconservative hawks: rid Arabia of the House of Saud thereby granting the US and allies full access to the Middle East's biggest prize. CLIP
A War for Israel
Moore Omits Important Questions
Moore's film is misleading, smug and cowardly. He picks on the easy "usual suspect" and ignores the driving forces behind the so-called "war on terror": Zionism, Zionist Israel and the NeoConservatives. He's like a politician who speaks out of both sides of his mouth. And he knows who to please in order to get rich. Michael Moores new documentary raises many interesting issues with regards to 9-11 and the Bush Administration, as well as the war on Iraq and Afghanistan. However, his film avoids many more important, but politically hot questions. Why does Moore focus only on the Saudis, yet never mentions the well-known role of Zionist Israel and the NeoConservatives, who are mostly Zionist American Jews as well as Zionist American Christians, in the war on Iraq? (...) Could it be that Michael Moore ignored the major role that Israel, Zionists, and NeoConservatives play in the war on terror (as if war is not terror!?) because he would have a hard time getting it distributed by the Weinstein brothers of Miramax, or anyone else in Hollywood for that matter (like Mel Gibson with his The Passion)? Could it be that Michael Moore prefers to get rich financially rather than tell the whole truth? But we can hope Moore uses his new incredible success with this film to step up to the more important politically hot questions that have been left unasked and unanswered. We must deal truthfully with all the issues involved in order to achieve justice and peace in this world. There must be equal rights for all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender in any country which our government supports, and that includes Israel. If segregation and apartheid were bad in the U.S. and in South Africa, then they are also bad in Israel.

Technology gets under clubbers' skin
A Real Chip On Your Shoulder
"Fred Burks" firstname.lastname@example.org> WROTE ON July 14
CNN and CBS report on microchip implants for humans currently in use
The technology to implant microchips and track people's movements and even their bank accounts with these chips is now being publicly acknowledged. The below two articles from the CNN and CBS websites cause one to pause and think. I am a big supporter of truth and transparency on both global and personal levels, but microchips under the skin is an invasive procedure for which I have no interest. Some fear this technology may eventually lead to mass microchipping of the human population for reasons of "national security." This would clearly be a gross invasion of privacy. Notice how both articles below seem to be subtly trying to convince the public that this is a beneficial technology, already accepted by people outside of the US.
I have heard from several insiders that the cutting edge technology being developed in secret, unacknowledged "black projects" by our military and intelligence services is 10 years or more in advance of anything being sold to the public. Several years ago, I attended a lecture given by former Vice President Al Gore's science advisor in Washington, DC. He said that the gadgets and weapons being developed in top secret programs that he had been privileged to see were seriously disturbing to him. And this is someone who knows a lot about cutting-edge technology. Please help spread the news so that people are aware of what is going on in the world. Together, we can make a big difference.

Subject: Some light in the darkness of DU weapons
Your recent compilations re DU weapons surfaced a lot of my fear (False Evidence Appearing Real). However recently I have been reading a book called Believing Cassandra by Alan ATKIsson
This book you must read, if only for his reference to a young physicist named Paul Brown who in 1999 had discovered that highly radioactive materials can be transformed into less radioactive materials by bombarding them with gamma rays.
The process generates a lot of heat, which can then be used to make electricity ,the materials are still radioactive, but their radioactivity dissipates in a matter of months instead of millennia, he was planning to build a demonstration plant that will cost a mere $5 million to build
I wonder what happened to him? I would be good to find out! Would any of your list know?
All the best
AND MY REPLY WAS:
Thanks Eluned for this important info which I've included in a coming compilation.
I know Hal Fox firstname.lastname@example.org> has also developed a technology designed to neutralize radioactive waste. Here is a quote from the last email I received from him: "We have been approved for "up to $40 million" for the development and demonstration of on-site transmutation of high-level, radioactive liquids."
Yet the problem is that there is indeed no existing technological fix (to my knowledge) that could render harmless microscopic radioactive dust of depleted uranium vaporized over vast areas, floating in the atmosphere and then falling with rain, snow and other dust all other the planet - and then absorbed in our bodies through water, (any drink literally) food and the air we breathe. It is too diffuse to be conveniently "treated".
The only hope I see is that there exists some extraterrestrial technology that can be effective against this nearly intractable problem. Perhaps they are already taking care of this problem. This is what Matthew (in heaven) alluded to when he said (through his mother Suzy): "(...) the light forces are defusing situations of their negativity and have been doing so for several decades. Ameliorating the effects of depleted uranium is one such situation." (CLICK HERE to see his whole message)
And he also stated: "The advanced capabilities of these higher light beings will aid in restoring those natural resources as well as cleaning up the polluted air, water and soil, which are other parts of Earth's body. They are reducing the most drastic effects of what are known as chemtrails, and of radioactivity from weaponry or leaking storage containers and in particular, the effects of depleting uranium. "Depleted" is a government-devised term meant to convey a completed process, as if less harm can result. Despite science's longevity estimate of the effects of this ongoing decay of lethal toxins, eventually they will pose no harm at all to physical bodies." (CLICK HERE to see his whole message)

Kerry Well Ahead of Bush in Electoral Votes
As of July 15, 2004, Kerry is estimated to be well ahead of Bush in electoral votes, with 322 electoral votes to Bush's 205, according to a website that is compiling poll results daily.
The website Electoral-Vote.com at http://www.electoral-vote.com/index.html offers graphical and numeric data based on state polls.
This very useful site is updated daily; click on the "previous" link to see day-by-day changes in the color-coded map. Significant changes in the electoral vote total are visible as new state polls are reported. One caveat: For states where no polls have been conducted, electoral votes from the 2000 election are used. For some states, such as Alaska and Hawaii, this might be valid. For other states, it may not be.
In addition, we think that this year's polls may be less accurate than usual, since people being polled may well not be telling the truth because of the climate of fear created by the Bush regime. A surprise landslide victory for Kerry in the popular vote is entirely possible. Perhaps the regime thinks so, too, and that is why we are being told we might not be allowed to vote this year.
The site also offers results in spreadsheet form, in an excel format for Windoze users -- AND in .csv format for the rest of us who use Linux/Unix.

COMPELLING EVIDENCE OF A BUILDUP TOWARDS ONE OF THE WORST POSSIBLE NIGHTMARES! NOT REASSURING...

GLOBAL RESEARCH (CANADA) FEATURE ARTICLE
COUP D'ETAT IN AMERICA?
by Michel Chossudovsky
13 July 2004
To consult the text of the complete article: http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO407B.html
Based on so-called "credible" reports, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge has warned that Osama is now "planning to disrupt the November elections". A large scale attack on American soil is said to be planned by Al Qaeda during the presidential election campaign:
"... Credible reporting indicates that Al Qaeda is moving forward with its plans to carry out a large-scale attack in the United States in an effort to disrupt our democratic process... This is sobering information about those who wish to do us harm... But every day we strengthen the security of our nation." (Quoted in AP, 8 July 2004)
"Possible targets" include the Democratic National Convention in July and the Republican Convention in New York in August.
Barely a few days prior to Tom Ridge's spectacular announcement, a spokesman of Northern Command Headquarters at Patterson Air Force Base in Colorado, confirmed that Northcom (which has a mandate to defend the Homeland) was "at a high level of readiness" and was proceeding with the (routine) deployment of jet fighters over major cities as well as the posting of troops at key locations. (Atlantic Journal and Constitution, 3 July 2004).
Canceling or Postponing the Elections
This new terror warning by Homeland Security, not to mention the impending military deployment, has served to create an aura of insecurity concerning the November presidential elections.
Meanwhile, postponement of the election has become a talking point on major news channels including CNN, following the release of a letter by the Director of the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, calling for so-called "guidelines" to cancel or reschedule the election in the case of a terror attack (For details see http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO407C.html )
Legal procedures for canceling/rescheduling the elections are under study, at the request of DHS Secretary Tom Ridge, by the Justice Departments Office of Legal Counsel, which is examining the legal and constitutional implications. (Washington Post, 14 July, 2004)
The Military and Intelligence apparatus working in liaison with Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Authority (FEMA) are indelibly behind this process, pointing to the unthinkable: the possibility of a Coup d'Etat in America.
Meanwhile, the cancellation / rescheduling of elections issue is presented to public opinion as a mere technical question, as a means to "protecting democracy," in the case of a terror attack. CNN has asked people "to vote" on their website, on whether they think the elections should be held in the case of a terror attack. It all sounds very democratic.
Crying Wolf on Terrorism. Who is the Wolf?
The terror alert level has been raised to orange (high alert) five times since September 11, 2001. There have been numerous other terror warnings since the "color coded" alert system was first established in the wake of 9/11.
There is, however, evidence from police sources that at least two of these five high profile post-9/11 code orange terror alerts were fabricated. (February 7, 2003, and December, 21, 2003) (for details and documentary evidence see http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO402A.html ).
There is also ample evidence that Al Qaeda is an creation of the US intelligence apparatus and that the terror network is supported by the Bush Administration. (See http://globalresearch.ca/articles/11SEPT309A.html , http://globalresearch.ca//by-topic/sept11/ , http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CRG204A.html )
The most recent DHS announcement has all the appearances of yet another fabricated report of an impending attack by an illusive "outside enemy". Amply documented Al Qaeda is not only a CIA sponsored "intelligence asset", the disinformation regarding the terror attacks emanates out of US intelligence. (See http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO405E.html )
Details of the police/intelligence investigation regarding Secretary Tom Ridge's July terror warning have not been provided. US officials, have said that they do "not have specific knowledge about where, when or how such an attack would take place, but the CIA, the FBI and other agencies are said to be "actively working to gain that knowledge.'"
Code Red Alert and Martial Law
The possibility of a code red terror alert has been announced time and again since September 11 2001, with a view to galvanizing public opinion across the country in support of an emergency situation, if and when it occurs. The terror alerts have become part of America's day to day life:
"at each threat condition [yellow, orange, red], federal departments and agencies would implement a corresponding set of "Protective Measures" to further reduce vulnerability or increase response capability during a period of heightened alert. (see http://www.fema.gov/pdf/areyouready/security.pdf
Supported by a barrage of media propaganda, these repeated terror alerts have created an environment of fear and intimidation, a wait and accept attitude, a false normality. US citizens are led to believe that a military solution is required to protect democracy.
In other words, the possibility of an impending attack on America by this "outside enemy" has been accepted by the American public; this tacit acceptance has set the stage for the adoption of "the highest threat level": code red alert.
What the US public is not aware of is that a code red alert suspends civilian government, it triggers a whole series of emergency procedures. It is tantamount to a Coup d'Etat. (Although in many regards the Coup d'Etat has already taken place under the post-9/11 anti-terrorist legislation and the rigging of the 2000 elections which brought George W. Bush into the White House.)
Preparing for Code Red
Homeland Security (DHS) has in fact been contemplating a code red alert "scenario" --using Al Qaeda as a pretext-- for more than a year. In May 2003, the DHS conducted a major "anti-terrorist exercise" entitled TOPOFF 2. The latter was described as "the largest and most comprehensive terrorism response and homeland security exercise ever conducted in the United States." The exercise was based on code red assumptions involving a simulated terrorist attack.(see http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO402A.html ).
A code red alert, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) , would create conditions for the ("temporary" we are told) suspension of the normal functions of civilian government, implying the cancellation or postponement of federal and State elections.
According to FEMA, code red would:
Increase or redirect personnel to address critical emergency needs; Assign emergency response personnel and pre-position and mobilize specially trained teams or resources; Monitor, redirect, or constrain transportation systems; and Close public and government facilities not critical for continuity of essential operations, especially public safety. (FEMA, http://www.fema.gov/pdf/areyouready/security.pdf )
Northern Command would take over. Several functions of civilian administration would be suspended, others could be transferred to the jurisdiction of the military. More generally, the procedure would disrupt government offices, businesses, schools, public services, transportation, etc.
A secret "Shadow government" under the classified "Continuity of Operations Plan" was installed on September 11, 2001.(See http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A20584-2002Feb28?language=printer ). Known internally as "Continuity of Government" or COG, the secret Shadow government would become functional in the case of a red code alert, redeploying key staff to secret locations.
Code red alert would, according to FEMA, also preclude and repress any form of public gathering or citizens' protest which questions the legitimacy of the emergency procedures and the installation of a police state. The emergency authorities would also exert tight censorship over the media and would no doubt paralyze the alternative news media on the internet.
Code red alert would trigger the "civilian" Homeland Emergency response system. The latter is already in place including DHS Ready.Gov instructions, the Big Brother Citizen Corps, not to mention the USAonWatch or Neighborhood Watch Program which has a mandate to "identify and report suspicious activity in neighborhoods" across America.
The Role of the Military
What would be the involvement of the Military in an code red emergency situation?
In theory, The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prevents the military from intervening in civilian police and judicial functions.
In practice, the Posse Comitatus Act is dead. (See Frank Morales at http://globalresearch.ca/articles/MOR309A.html ).
The existing legislation inherited from the Clinton administration, not to mention the post 9/11 Patriot Acts I and II, "blurs the line between military and civilian roles", it allows the military to intervene in judicial and law enforcement activities even in the absence of an emergency situation.
The 1996 legislation allowed the military to intervene in the case of a national emergency (e.g.. a terrorist attack). Clinton's 1999 Defense Authorization Act (DAA) extended those powers by creating an "exception" to the Posse Comitatus Act, which permits the military to be involved in civilian affairs "regardless of whether there is an emergency". (See ACLU at http://www.aclu.org/NationalSecurity/NationalSecurity.cfm?ID=8683&c=24 , emphasis added)
In other words, the Clinton era legislation had already laid the legal and ideological foundations of the "war on terrorism".
In the context of the war on terrorism, the so-called "exception" contained in the 1999 DAA legislation nullifies the provisions of the Posse Comitatus Act:
"The new proposed exception to the Posse Comitatus Act would further expand a controversial measure adopted by Congress in 1996 that permitted military involvement in "emergencies" involving chemical and biological weapons crimes.
Under that new measure, which was proposed by the Defense Department, the military would be authorized to deal with crimes involving any chemical or biological weapons -- or any other weapon of mass destruction -- regardless of whether there is an "emergency." In addition, the new proposal would lift requirements that the military be reimbursed for the cost of its intervention, thus likely increasing the number of requests for military assistance.
"Under this new provision," Nojeim said, "the mere threat of an act of terrorism would justify calling in military units. That represents a loophole large enough to drive a battalion of army tanks through."
The defense authorization bill would also require the Pentagon to develop a plan to assign military personnel to assist Customs and the Immigration and Naturalization Service to "respond to threats to national security posed by entry into the U.S. of terrorists or drug traffickers."
"the mere threat of an act of terrorism would justify calling in military units. That represents a loophole large enough to drive a battalion of army tanks through." (ibid)
Despite this 1999 "exception" to the Posse Comitatus Act", which effectively invalidates it, the Pentagon and Homeland Security, anxious to remove all ambiguities, are nonetheless actively lobbying the US Congress for the outright repeal of the 1878 legislation.
"new rules are needed to clearly set forth the boundaries for the use of federal military forces for homeland security. The Posse Comitatus Act is inappropriate for modern times and needs to be replaced by a completely new law ...
It is time to rescind the existing Posse Comitatus Act and replace it with a new law. ... The Posse Comitatus Act is an artifact of a different conflict-between freedom and slavery or between North and South, if you prefer. Today's conflict is also in a sense between freedom and slavery, but this time it is between civilization and terrorism. New problems often need new solutions, and a new set of rules is needed for this issue.
President Bush and Congress should initiate action to enact a new law that would set forth in clear terms a statement of the rules for using military forces for homeland security and for enforcing the laws of the United States.
(John R. Brinkerhoff, former associate director for national preparedness of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), http://www.homelandsecurity.org/journal/Articles/brinkerhoffpossecomitatus.htm )
Senator Joseph Biden (a Democrat), Chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has also being waging, since the mid-1990s, a battle for the repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act.
The Patriot Legislation
In turn, the Bush administration Patriot Acts have set the groundwork of a police state. In minute detail, they go much further in setting the stage for the militarisation of civilian institutions.
The various provisions are very detailed and precise. The USA PATRIOT ACT of 2001 entitled "Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001" as well as the "Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003," ("PATRIOT Act II") create the conditions for the militarisation of justice and police functions.
Even under a functioning civilian government, the PATRIOT Acts have already instated several features of martial law. The extent to which they are applied is at the discretion of the military authorities.
The 2003 Patriot Act II goes much further in extending and enlarging the "Big Brother functions" of control and surveillance of people. It vastly expands the surveillance powers, providing government access to personal bank accounts, information on home computers, telephone wire tapping, credit card accounts, etc. (for further details, see Ratical.org at http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/USAPA2.html#DSEAanalysis )

Democrats and Republicans
Some people think that a change in direction will occur if the Democrats win the 2004 presidential elections. Yet the Democrats are not opposed to the illegal occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. Nor are they opposed to the militarisation of civilian institutions, as evidenced by their initiative to repeal the Posse Comitatus Act.
While there are substantive differences between Republicans and Democrats, Bush's National Security doctrine is a continuation of that formulated under the Clinton Administration in 1995, which was based on a "strategy of containment of rogue states".
In Fall 2003, the Democrats released their own militarisation blueprint, entitled "Progressive Internationalism: A Democratic National Security Strategy":
"This 19-page manifesto that calls for "the bold exercise of American power, not to dominate but to shape alliances and international institutions that share a common commitment to liberal values." (See Mark Hand, http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/HAN403A.html
The militarisation of America is a project of the US corporate elites, with significant divisions within the corporate establishment on how it is to be achieved.
The corporate establishment and its associated thinks tanks and semi-secret societies (The Bildeberg, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, etc.) is by no means monolithic.
Influential voices within the elites would prefer a "softer" police state apparatus, a "democratic dictatorship" which retains the external appearances of a functioning democracy.
The Democrats' "Progressive internationalism" is viewed by these sectors as a more effective way of imposing the US economic and military agenda Worldwide. For instance, the Kerry-Edwards ticket is supported by billionaire George Soros, who has waged a scathing denunciation of George W. Bush and the Neocons.
While the US Congress and the bi-partisan consensus constitutes the facade, the Military (and their Intelligence counterparts) are, from the point of view of the corporate elites, mere foreign policy "pawns", to use Henry Kissinger's expression, acting on behalf of dominant business interests.
The Wall Street financial establishment, the military-industrial complex, led by Lockheed Martin, the big five weapons and aerospace defense contractors, the Texas oil giants and energy conglomerates, the construction and engineering and public utility companies including, the biotechnology conglomerates, are indelibly behind the militarisation of America.
Elections or no Elections?
The "war on terrorism" is a war of conquest, which supports American (and British) economic and strategic interests. Its underpinnings are supported by both Democrats and Republicans.
While a Coup d'Etat triggered by a code red alert is a distinct possibility in the months ahead, we must understand that the militarisation of civilian institutions in America is an ongoing process.
The Coup d'Etat entrenches the militarisation process. It suspends civil liberties and the antiwar movement outright. It makes any form of reversal back to civilian forms government much more difficult to achieve.
Militarisation, however, as distinct from an outright Military Coup d'Etat, does not exclude the electoral process.
Under a Kerry-Edwards administration, the military-intelligence apparatus --which constitutes the backbone of the "war on terrorism" and of the police state-- would remain functionally intact. So would Northern Command and the various Big Brother functions of the Department of Homeland Security.
One can indeed speculate on what might happen from now until the November presidential elections.
Whether the elections take place or not, the contours of a functioning police state under the facade of Constitutional government have already been defined:
the Big Brother surveillance apparatus,
the militarisation of justice and law enforcement,
the disinformation and propaganda network,
the support to terrorist organizations,
political assassinations and torture manuals,
extensive war crimes and the blatant violation of international law,
On the economic front, we can expect militarisation to accelerate the gamut of neoliberal economic reforms both nationally and internationally (In the later case, they would be implemented under the auspices of the IMF, World Bank and World Trade Organisation).
Militarisation will be accompanied by a new deadly wave of privatization of public services, urban infrastructure would be transferred to private companies, local economies including small scale enterprises and agriculture would be further destabilized and deregulated, etc, leading to increased levels of unemployment and the impoverishment of millions of people.
Militarisation is an integral part of the neoliberal agenda.

Subject: Ralph Nader = Controlled Opposition. Article Explains Why "Global Trade Watch" Refuses to Assist IAHF Defend Health Freedom
Hi Jean, This is a revealing expose of Ralph Nader and his globalist backers. WERE NOT WINNING YET.
IAHF Webmaster: Breaking News, Whats New, Codex, EU FSD, All Countries, What to Do
IAHF List: Politics is the manipulation of perceptions, and in the world of politics, things are seldom as they first appear to be on the surface. Please read the article below my comments by William Jasper about Ralph Nader.
His observation that Nader is taking money from the Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller and other Globalist Foundations is shocking, revealing, and very consistent with my own experience of trying to get assistance from this man for our health freedom battle, only to be rebuffed. At the time, this made no sense to me, but this article helps me understand what I ran into.
Several years ago, I became interested in the "Global Trade Watch" division of Ralph Nader's well known organization called "Public Citizen" (See http://www.citizen.org/trade/)
On the SURFACE, Nader, and his minion Lori Wallach, JD, APPEAR to be on the side of the PEOPLE in this battle against globalization. The SAD REALITY however is that all that is is an ILLUSION.
I made a trip to Washington DC a few years ago when I was trying to get congressional oversight on the Codex vitamin issue, and I had a meeting at the office of Public Citizen with their Global Trade Watch Division.
I told them that if they helped me with this Codex vitamin issue, they could get the attention of American vitamin consumers from all sides of the political spectrum to fight against the WTO and against the planned destruction of American vitamin laws.
They would not help. The REASON they gave was that they could not take a position that contradicted a position of Sidney Wolfe, MD who handles medical matters for Nader and who has for decades. Wolfe is a diehard opponent of the dietary supplement industry and he totally opposes the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.
At the time I just thought that Wolfe was my main problem inside Public Citizen, but the article below shows us all a much BIGGER picture..... Public Citizen is a PHONY ORGANIZATION. It is CONTROLLED OPPOSITION. It is FUNDED by the Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller and other globalist Foundations it PRETENDS to be AGAINST!!
I demonstrated against the WTO in Seattle in '99, but I see now that I GENUINELY oppose the WTO, while Nader, who had such a high profile in the same demonstration in Seattle in '99 is only going through the MOTIONS. All of us, world wide, need to work together to expose FRAUDS such as this. Interestingly enough, Jim Turner, Chairman of the Board of "Citizens for Health" in the USA used to WORK for Nader.
Perhaps this helps explain why so called "Citizens for Health" has NOTHING on its website about either the Codex issue or about the EU Food Supplement Directive despite massive urging from me that they address these issues and urge public support for ANH's lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive.... Birds of a feather fly together.....
Please make a donation today to the Alliance for Natural Health at
http://www.alliance-natural-health.org You'll be glad to know that today all 6 Fresh and Wild Stores in London will be donating 5% of their profits to the ANH lawsuit and Rob Verkerk of ANH will be in the stores to educate consumers. Fresh and Wild is a division of Whole Foods Market in the USA. Lets hope we can prevail upon Whole Foods to do the same thing in the USA that they're doing in England to help ANH!!!
Please read Jasper's article below which exposes Nader for the Fraud that he is. If you have been a Nader supporter for a long time, please don't have a kneejerk reaction to this information. I WANTED to believe in Nader myself, because I USED to think he was a good man who could be TRUSTED, but I found out otherwise when I approached his organization seeking assistance and ran into a brick wall. This explains why I did:
Rogues Gallery: False Opposition
by William F. Jasper
This is the second installment in a series of articles looking at the forces behind the scenes propelling us toward globalization through NAFTA, the FTAA and the WTO.
Ralph Nader "Citizen Ralph" is the quintessential Establishment revolutionary fed, funded, pampered and promoted by the globalist elites and one-world corporatists he claims to be fighting. With generous funding from Insider foundations (Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Field, Rubin, Stern, et al.), over the past several decades Nader has launched a plethora of radical "public interest" groups that have become a permanent, full-time lobbying force for ever bigger government. They include: Public Citizen, Congress Watch, Citizen Works, Public Interest Research Group, Center for the Study of Responsive Law, Center for Auto Safety, Government Purchasing Project and the Congressional Accountability Project.

Republicans Helping Nader to Help Themselves (19 July 2004)
The Michigan Republican Party submitted more than 40,000 signatures last week in a bid to get independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader on the state's November ballot. Of course, this is not really about helping Nader. It is all about helping President Bush and hurting Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry's campaign in a closely contested state. CLIP

'Al-Qaeda' is a Manufactured Intelligence Front
Kawther Salam | June 25 2004
During the past weeks, two American hostages have been killed and decapitated in Iraq and in Saudi Arabia. The media say that these crimes were committed by Islamic Terrorists.
I have never read any Islamic Rule in the Koran which allows the decapitation of people whether they are Moslems, Christians or Jews, for any reason whatsoever.
I have never read an Islamic Rule which states that the killing of hostages is allowed. All what I remember that Islam has to say in this matter is that somebody who kills a believer unlawfully is sanctioned the same as if he had killed all the worlds nations. The word believer means "anyone who believes in God" in this context, not only Muslims.
The Koran states that the place where faith in God is held, and equally where the faith in God is broken, is in the heart. The Koran states that nobody can read what is in the hearts of others, or judge them as a believers or disbelievers. Even if their hearts are cut open, it is not possible to know if a person is a believer or not. Knowledge in this matter belongs only to God himself. This should be understood as meaning that Islam expressly forbids killing for religious reasons.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) recommended good treatment for hostages and prisoners during the past Islamic wars. He said: You should not kill an old man, a child, or a woman. You should not cut a tree or destroy a church.... Murdering and killing is outside of Islamic morals and principles, which are inviolable.
Seen from a more secular standpoint, an Arabic proverb says Nobody can cut the head of a person but his Creator. This means again that nobody has the right to put an end to anothers life. While Islam expressly forbids suicide, it is still more acceptable to put an end to ones own life than to kill another person.
The word "Al-Qaeda" is commonly used in the Arab public language for "Toilet".
What does the word "Al-Qaeda" mean? In Arabic, "Al-Qaeda" has different meanings, among them Base", "Ground", "Norm", "Rule", "Fundament", "Grammar". The exact meaning is dependent on the context in which it is used. It depends on the word which follows Al-Qaeda in the sentence. "Qawa'ad Askaria" is an Army Base, "Qawa'ad Lugha" stands for Grammar Rules (the Bases of Grammar).
"Qa'ada" is the infinitive of the verb "to sit". "Ma-Qa'ad" is a chair. "Al-Qaeda" is the base or fundament of something. "Ana raicha Al Qaeda" is colloquial for "I'm going to the toilet". A very common and widespread use of the word Al-Qaeda in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb Qa'ada which mean to sit, pertinently, on the Toilet Bowl. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: Al-Qaeda also called the "Hamam Franji" or foreign toilet, and "Hamam Arabi" or Arab toilet which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called "Ma Qa'adia" or "Little Qaeda".
Those who founded the glorious "International of Islamic Terror, Al-Qaeda, probably knew too little about common use of Arabic language to know that by using this name for their organization, they risked becoming the laughing stock of everybody who speaks the Arabic "public" language.
To kidnap, torture and execute people are terrorist actions which are in no way related to God or to Islam, and these actions are not rewarded by paradise as some ignorant Western media figures would like to believe.
The terrorist event of New York 11 September 20001, and the terror event of Madrid on 11 March 2004, and other terror events commonly connected to Islam, are clearly not related to Islam if we consider that the Al-Qaeda terror organization was established by the C.I.A in the 1980s. Al-Qaeda is nothing but a conveniently "Islamic" front which enables the C.I.A. to commit crimes in the name of Muslims. It is well known that the Mujahadeen terrorists of Afghanistan were organized, trained and funded by the C.I.A. using the Pakistani ISI as a "cut-out" in order to lure the Soviet Army into Afghanistan at the end of 1979. The Mujahedeen can be seen as C.I.A. terrorism with an islamic name and "islamic" perpetrators. Afghanistan has, for all purposes, been destroyed by these fanatics in furtherance of American interests.
The Al-Qaeda terror organization has caused immense damage to Islam, to Moslems worldwide and to the interests of the peoples of all Arab and Muslim countries. The actions of Al-Qaeda have only served to promote the interests of the U.S. and Israel, which are clearly interested in "reshaping" the Middle East in such a way that they can more easily rape and plunder the region at will.
In fact the C.I.A is using the terrorist actions of its proxy Al-Qaeda in order to give the U.S. an excuse to extend their power into and invade the Arab countries, first countries with rich plunder (Oil) like Iraq, Iran, Saudia Arabia, and second any country which is a "threat" to Israel, or more exactly which Israel dislikes for whatever reason. The third objective for which the C.I.A. is using its proxy Al-Qaeda is to engender fear and hate of Islam and Muslims worldwide. This corresponds to an old and tried ploy of colonizers: to slander and denigrate the target population so that it is acceptable and even called for to commit genocide against them. The peoples of Ireland, Africa and the Americas have all suffered this tragedy, and these regions have been colonized. The next obvious victims are Arabs and Muslims by extension because they live in geographic areas rich in oil and other resources, and because Muslims as a collective are not white enough to be respected as full humans by the criminals in London, Washinton and Tel Aviv.
The immediate question is then: What purpose is the U.S pursuing in Saudi Arabia with the decapitation of Paul Johnson? Is this crime related to their plans in the region in any way, or is it just one more sideshow related to the upcoming elections in the U.S. designed to distract the american public from some very embarassing information leaks which could endanger the reelection of President Bush? Will there be a new decapitation every time something embarassing or dangerous for the Bush administration leaks to the media, in the same way as there was a very well timed suicide bomber in Israel every time Sharon would have otherwise been forced to make peace with the Palestinian side? In a strange coincidence, the murder of Paul Johnson was made public last Thursday or Friday.
The pictures of Johnson's decapitation were widely shown in the mainstream media. At the same time, last Thursday, two American officers testified before the Commission investigating the 911 crime according to the article by Tom Fiocco linked above. This was conveniently ignored by the mainstream media. If the 911 Commission had chosen to ask these two officers hard questions related to the weirdness of that day, they could probably have been found more than just weirdness and chaos. A pertinent question would have been: could "Al-Qaeda", without the very opportune "weirdness" around the actions of these two officers, been able to kidnap and fly four airplanes for hours through the USA, to crash them into buildings in two separate cities? Whatever the answer to this question, the two officers named in the linked article, Navy Captain Charles J. Leidig, Jr. and Brigadier General Montague Winfield have since been promoted by President Bush according to the article of Tom Fiocco.
A strange coincidence around the murder of Paul Johnson is that the Saudi Police apparently cooperated with those who abducted him. Why would a security service trained by American and British C.I.A. fronts like the Vinnell Corporation, cooperate with "Al-Qaeda", their purported enemy? This is the second time during the last weeks that Saudi security forces have cooperated with "Al-Qaeda. If this starts happening regularly, it would suggest either a very grave instability in the Kingdom or that the Saudi security forces are run in accordance with American interests.
And, why was the body of Paul Johnson, just like Nicholas Berg before him, clothed in an orange Guantanamo-style overall? Does "Al-Qaeda" go shopping at Guantanamo Bay, or is there something else behind this "coincidence"?
During the second Palestinian Intifada, the Israeli intelligence tried to create an "Al-Qaeda" organization in the West Bank and and Gaza using the American know-how and experience gained creating Al-Qaeda and Mr. Osama bin Ladin. The Israeli Intelligence services were using the damaged Palestinians economy to lure in unaware Palestinian youths. They provided several Palestinians with machine guns and thousands of dollars to kill Israelis under the name of Al-Qaeda. When the game was discovered by the Palestinians intelligence, the Israelis scurried away and stopped their disgusting "Al-Qaeda" game with Palestinians. Only last week the media carried news of an Israeli (not Palestinian) arrested in the Phillipines for being a member of "Al-Qaeda"
As an example of how different things can be when the USA wants, in April, 1992, the airplane of President Arafat made a forced landing in the desert during a trip between Lybia and Sudan. He was found almost instantly by Israel and America, and brought to safety on the next day. Why is the USA not able to find Osama bin Laden in the same way with all the resources they have ?
On behalf of my people I would like to say that we deny that the terror practices of Al-Qaeda represent Islam and Moslems in any way. We are against the instrumentalization of Islam and all Moslems by the C.I.A through their front organization Al-Qaeda. This disgusting criminal gang has already caused too much death and suffering for innocents of all creeds in many lands. We reject the Al-Qaeda announcement to killing innocents people under the name of Islam for revenge of the injustices comitted against Palestinians. We reject all Al-Qaeda practices as these crimes are against humanity. These crimes are all steered from Washington by the C.I.A. and they only represent U.S. policy.

Subject: US Military Spending Nearly Ten Times the Amount Spent by the Second Highest Country
Date: 16 Jul 2004
The below article in the UK's respected daily The Guardian gives an excellent perspective on military spending worldwide. It does not specifically state, however, that the US spends nearly 10 times the amount of the next highest country (Japan), which you can see by comparing the US's 47 percent of total expenditures with Japan's five percent. If you divide the US population of nearly 300 million into US military spending of $450 billion, you will see that last year the United States spent $1,500 per man, woman, and child on defense! Globally, defense spending divided by population equals $150 per person for the over six billion people on the planet.
Imagine how different things might be if just one percent of this money was devoted to mediation and conflict resolution for global conflicts.

Global Military Spending Soars in 2003
June 9, 2004
By MATT MOORE - Associated Press Writer
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - World military spending surged during 2003, reaching $956 billion, nearly half of it by the United States as it paid for missions in Iraq, Afghanistan and the war on terror, a prominent European think tank said Wednesday.
The money has been effective in waging war, but threats of terror and weapons of mass destruction still exist, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
Military spending rose by 11 percent, which the group called a ``remarkable increase.'' The amount was up 18 percent from 2001. The $956 billion spent on defense costs worldwide corresponded to 2.7 percent of the world's gross domestic product, according to the annual report. ``It's very close to the Cold War peak in 1987,'' said SIPRI researcher Elisabeth Skoens, who co-authored the report.
SIPRI also warned of fears that biotechnology research, particularly concerning human genes, could lead to the development of a new class of biological weapons. ``The free access to genetic sequence data for the human genome and a large number of other genomes, including for pathogenic micro-organisms, is a great scientific resource, but it could pose a significant threat if misused,'' the report said.
Researcher Richard Guthrie said developments in mapping the human genome, which could lead to improved medicines and vaccines for heart and neurological problems, also could be used by terrorists. ``It is something to be concerned about,'' he told The Associated Press, but added that no plausible threats have been made.
The United States led the world in defense spending, accounting for 47 percent of the total [$450 billion], followed by Japan with 5 percent and Britain, France and China, with 4 percent each. The figures were in line with estimates by Jane's Information Group, a spokesman from the company's London office told the AP.
The 2003 rise in defense spending coincided with a decrease in the number of conflicts worldwide, which fell to 19, the second-lowest since the think tank began issuing the reports 35 years ago. SIPRI also noted that 14 separate peace missions began last year, the most since the end of the Cold War.
Rockefeller Obit You'll Only Read Here
Laurance Rockefeller died on July 11, 2004 at the age of 93, after a brief illness. Mr. Rockefeller was of exceptional importance to UFO research. Between 1993 and 1995, he supported Dr. John Mack's Center for Psychology and Social Change in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1997, he funded a discovery initiative spearheaded by long-time friend Marie Galbraith, designed to inform world leaders of the validity of the UFO issue and to increase pressure for disclosure of government files.
Mrs. Galbraith arranged for the three most influential civilian UFO groups in America to unite under the temporary banner of the UFO Research Coalition: CUFOS (Center for UFO Studies), FUFOR (Fund for UFO Research) and MUFON (Mutual UFO Network). Drawing on these organizations' data resources, a 169-page special report, "Unidentified Flying Objects Briefing Document: The Best Available Evidence," was compiled. The report was sent by Mr. Rockefeller and Mrs. Galbraith to virtually every world leader, but there was little response. It was later published by the Fund for UFO Research and reprinted in Whitley Strieber's Dell Books "Hidden Agendas" series.
Whitley Strieber comments on Mr. Rockefeller's death: "Laurance Rockefeller was a champion of disclosure of UFO secrets who had the courage to put his money into this cause. He contributed intelligently and effectively. The UFO Briefing Document led to the production of the French COMETA Report, arguably one of the most persuasive documents ever published regarding the UFO phenomenon.
"I attended a small conference funded by Mr. Rockefeller in 1997 at the Medway Plantation in South Carolina, owned by Mrs. Sidney Legendre, a Rockefeller relative. At this conference, he told me of his private certainty, gained from his many contacts within the US government, that the UFO issue was quite real and a very heavily guarded secret.
