Bush Wages War on Americans

When George W. Bush said of our "Constitution that it is "... just a Goddamn piece of paper!", he declared himself an outlaw at war with the American people. The Bush administration's culture of fear, hate and contempt for law inspires an epidemic of police lawlessness and thuggery that now terrorizes law-abiding Americans all over America. You can be thrown in jail upon a whim. You don't get to make a phone call. You don't get to call your lawyer. You don't get to call your wife or husband. And you don't get visitors. It is a state of treasonous war, a capital crime for which these war mongers must answer to the people.

Che Guevara said:
Of these three propositions the first two contradict the defeatist attitude of revolutionaries or pseudo-revolutionaries who remain inactive and take refuge in the pretext that against a professional army nothing can be done, who sit down to wait until in some mechanical way all necessary objective and subjective conditions are given without working to accelerate them.

As these problems were formerly a subject of discussion in Cuba, until facts settled the question, they are probably still much discussed in America. Naturally, it is not to be thought that all conditions for revolution are going to be created through the impulse given to them by guerrilla activity. It must always be kept in mind that there is a necessary minimum without which the establishment and consolidation of the first center is not practicable.

People must see clearly the futility of maintaining the fight for social goals within the framework of civil debate. When the forces of oppression come to maintain themselves in power against established law; peace is considered already broken.

--Guerilla Warfare, Che Guevara

It says a lot about Bush's 'America' that when Che says it, it's considered radical. But it is not given a second thought when, in fact, we have in his own words the same thing said by Thomas Jefferson.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

--Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence

Bush has already assumed the power to wage war on the American people, claiming and aggressively exercising, the "right to use any and all war powers against American citizens within the United States". Like any other tin-horn dictator he insists that he is above all restraints by Congress and the courts. See: Glenn Greenwald: The NSA Fight Begins - Strategies for Moving Forward

When Bush says that the "Constitution is just a Goddamned piece of paper", he aligns himself with Hitler, Mussolini, Mao -- "state absolutists", fascists, and radical communists. Simply, he has declared war on the American people, our Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Democracy and freedom. The peace is already broken. The war has begun. It is time to evaluate the situation.
  • Criminals and traitors have seized power illegitimately and operate outside the law i.e, the Constitution so hated by Bush. So far, this gang of crooks have had nothing to fear from the impeachment process though there is probable cause to try Bush himself for capital crimes. As Bush jokes about remaining in power past his term, Americans as well as Iraqis are brutalized without charges, trial or representation. Under Bush, jackbooted thugs may not bother accusing you of a crime. They need only 'define' you as a terrorist. You will not get a phone call, a lawyer, a trial. You are a terrorist because Bush says you are and he has decreed that he does not have to make a case against you.

    Tasers, Torture and Terror Tactics: America Becomes a Police State
  • Bush continues to justify his assault upon the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, indeed, the rule of law itself with one word: terrorism. But, in fact, his "War on Terror" is as big a lie as was the official 911 conspiracy theory and the uncountable lies that were told to the United Nations about Iraq: The proposition that terrorism is the inevitable result of imperial aggressions explains Bush incompetent economic policies as well as America's fascist tilt. That terrorism is always worse under GOP regimes is a demonstrable, statistical fact.

    The CIA creates terrorism two ways by indulging it as a tactic and by inspiring it with its excesses. The legacy of Blackwater USA, an international terrorist organization, will have inspired generations of "terrorists" resorting to a tactic against which top down fascist regimes are impotent.
  • Bush has abrogated or violated every provision of the US Bill of Rights, arguably the most important document standing between you and tyrannous dictatorship! Well, under Bush, it no longer stands between you and dictatorship. [See: Bush's War on the Bill of Rights]
  • Bush has put himself above the rule of law even as he denied you the benefit and the protections that are your under the law! There is a name for this. Dictatorship!
    The Bush administration has been frightening in the way it has nullified lawsuits against its actions. The Justice Department simply laughed at attempts of the ACLU to get lists of detained suspects through lawsuits in early 2002.6 Ellen Mariani’s lawsuit against the Bush administration, accusing it of foreknowledge of, and failure to act on, September 11, may seem to many like the material of a conspiracy theory, but we can be fairly sure that the question will never go to a jury. Quite recently, an ACLU legal challenge against the Patriot Act became news after being silenced for three weeks by the Patriot Act.

    --Anthony Gregory, Bush’s War on the Bill of Rights

  • In fact, a majority of Americans Support a 911 Investigation of Bush/Cheney
An investigation of 911 should have begun the very day it happened. Instead, Bush quashed all attempts to get to the truth of 911, saying that it would interfere with the war on terrorism. What had he to fear? Had 911 been properly investigated the disastrous and counter-productive "war on terrorism" might have been avoided, a real enemy might have been identified. Perhaps Bush had planned such a war all along. Certainly, Dick Cheney's 'Energy Task Force' was carving up Iraq's oil fields long before 911. Bush knew that Saddam did not have WMD. All were lies.

The time has come for Americans to fight back! I don't see a resolution of these issues in an the election process. None of the major candidates of either party have dealt with these issues honestly. The elections themselves could be postponed or cancelled outright in the case of a new "national emergency about which Bush warned recently that 911 might pale 'by comparison'. What is he planning? [See: How a Second Terrorist Attack Will Benefit George W. Bush] Americans must not wait "...while dangers gather". [Bush: Remarks to UN] It's time to act.
I was just reading a post about how Americans need another civil war. This got me to thinking about there being a better way. American's need to go on strike. Quit your jobs. The corporations and government make money from us working. They depend on it. If we are slaves like some have said then just stop. Stop working, stop consuming. Just stop. Of course it won't work if just a handful participate. We have to beat them at their own game. In fact, lets ALL go on welfare. Let's take money from them. (Them being the gov't and corporate scabs that continue to work.)

I think I have said this before with little response but I would like to put it in it's own thread so I can get more minds chipping away at it. Please help me tinker with this idea. How can we make it work? Or tell me how it is doomed to fail so I can get over this and move on to something else. ***Please put some thought into your posts. I really don't want people just posting how stupid I am and how this will never work without an explanation of why.*** Okay, I'm putting on my turtle shell now to protect myself from the hurtful words that I'm probably going to have to endure.... here goes. Post comments here or go to original thread here.

FBI Deputizes Private Contractors With Extraordinary Powers, Including 'Shoot to Kill'

The FBI has a new set of eyes and ears, and they're being told to protect their infrastructure at any cost. They can even kill without repercussion.

Today, more than 23,000 representatives of private industry are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The members of this rapidly growing group, called InfraGard, receive secret warnings of terrorist threats before the public does -- and, at least on one occasion, before elected officials. In return, they provide information to the government, which alarms the ACLU. But there may be more to it than that. One business executive, who showed me his InfraGard card, told me they have permission to "shoot to kill" in the event of martial law. InfraGard is "a child of the FBI," says Michael Hershman, the chairman of the advisory board of the InfraGard National Members Alliance and CEO of the Fairfax Group, an international consulting firm.

New Bill To Allow Police Misconduct Be Hidden From Public

A new bill proposed at the legislature would allow for police to withhold misconduct reports from the public. Supporters of the bill believe that police misconduct should be kept secret from the public so to not discredit police testimony. Others say that a forthright police unit is essential to the community.

In September, Jared Massey was zapped with a taser by Trooper John Gardner. A video of the incident was recorded from Gardner’s patrol car. Gardner can be seen shocking Massey until he hits the ground while Massey’s wife screams from the side of their SUV.

More than a million people watched the video on “YouTube.” Massey was shocked to see his new found fame. The footage may have never been seen had Massey not made a records request to obtain the tape. ...

Police Atrocities Define the Bush Police State

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Jack booted thugs can now arrest you without a warrant, without “probable cause” or evidence that you might have committed a crime. Law abiding Americans are victimized by cops gone wild, sadistic hot dogs, mental midgets and Nazi wannabes. They are inspired by the atmosphere of fear and hate. Police atrocities are to be expected.

The real criminals are in the White House and, so far, they have escaped charges and justice. There is probable cause to try Bush himself for capital crimes --but he is free while millions are brutalized without charges, trial or representation. Now under Bush, jackbooted thugs don't even bother accusing you of a crime. You can be throw in jail upon whim. You don't get to make a phone call. You don't get to call your lawyer. You don't get to call your wife or husband. And you don't get visitors.

These days –who cares if you are innocent? Bush has assumed the power to 'define' you as a terrorist. Conceivably, you could be locked up in one of Bush's hell-holes for the rest of your life. You may never get your day in court. But if you dare to protest that you are an American citizen, you risk getting kicked in the balls, tasered, strip searched and beaten. In Houston, in the seventies, a young Hispanic male was accused of being rowdy in a bar. He was never charged. Rather, Houston cops took him to a secluded part of Buffalo Bayou, beat the crap out of him, and thew him into Buffalo Bayou where he drowned.

Big Brother Bush spies on you. As early as 2002, Bush secretly ordered the National Security Agency (NSA) to monitor, intercept, and keep records on international phone calls and emails. They have simply declared they don't need court orders, they don't need probable cause, they don't need authorization, they don't even need 'reasonable suspicion', Gen. Michael Hayden's fictitious, delusional and non-existent standard. The Constitution requires 'probable cause' but you can forget about that in Bush's dictatorship. As Bush himself put it: “Stop throwing up the Constitution to me. It's just a Goddamned piece of paper” [See: A Goddamned Piece of Paper!]


If you've ever publicly opposed Bush's war of naked aggression in Iraq, you can bet you're in NSA's database, called, typically of these mentally constipated authoritarians, TALON! How cute! This practice most certainly goes far beyond Nixon's 'enemies list', a sophomoric exercise typical of idiots who take themselves entirely too seriously. No –Bush's database, methods, scope and ruthlessness plops us in Orwellian territory without a Junior Wood Chucks guidebook. In the vernacular, we're fucked! The government has declared war upon us. In the words of Che Guevara “...the peace is already considered to be broken.” Let's put it another way. The revolution was begun when George W. Bush declared war upon the people of the United States.

War protesters, naturally, were the first to wind up in Big Bro's TALON, or database, or, to use the lingo of Bush and Bush-head: al Qaeda, literally, 'the base'. There you have it. Bush can merely define you as an 'enemy combatant' and your name winds up on his list of 'terrorists'. A 'terrorist' is anyone who opposes George W. Bush, tyrant for whom the Constitution is just a “...Goddamned piece of paper!”

Don't call him "dude" or he may "kill you"

Is it a man? Is it a dude? No, it's officer Rivieri of the Baltimore Police Department who is the latest small membered thug cop to believe that it is his duty to go around bullying and wrestling discipline into innocent children. Unfortunately for this PC podge, he is also the latest cop caught on camera and made famous by Youtube.

On the video, the officer, Salvatore Rivieri, puts the boy in a headlock, pushes him to the ground, questions his upbringing, threatens to "smack" him and repeatedly accuses the youngster of showing disrespect because the youth refers to the officer as "man" and "dude." reports the Baltimore Sun.

Egomaniac Thug Cop Assaults 14 Year Old Kid

In free societies, police serve and protect; they do not demand obeisance and they most certainly are accorded respect when it is rightfully earned by service and duty. The four stages of the evolution of a police state are in evidence in the US, where the police have gotten it the wrong way 'round.
  1. Shut down media coverage after they steal an election
  2. Serve the central government instead of serving the citizens
  3. Enforce the policies of the central government instead of responding primarily to criminal misdeeds
  4. Spy on and intimidate citizens
Survival hints that might help keep you alive in the Bush/GOP society of fear and thuggery:
  • Never go out at night alone; always bring a witness!
  • Never go out in the daytime alone!
  • Never go anywhere unless you have back-up following you at 20 paces or so with a camcorder so that when you are assaulted or murdered, there will be a record of it!
  • When COPS are near, try your best to look like a Republican i.e, look stupid!
  • Don't look 'black' even if you are white; don't ever say 'bro!
  • Carry a copy of the Wall St Journal or the Washington Times but don't use it to wrap a cod. It could be mistaken for a .357 with gills.
Alas, it was Bertrand Russell who foresaw so many issues that now shape our lives, issues contributing to the growing feeling that we, as individuals, now count for very little in the Bush/Neocon/GOP vision of global domination and endless world wars. Whenever the idea that individuals count for little takes hold, brutality against the individual is to be expected.
"Many people would sooner die than think. In fact they do."

"I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology.... Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called 'education.' Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part.... It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment."

"Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."

Tasers, Torture and Terror Tactics: America Becomes a Police State

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Torture and atrocities are not confined to Abu Ghraib. In and out of the nation's 'out-sourced' penal institutions, perverts with badges terrorize the nation. They threaten innocent children, women and the handicapped. Everyone is a target.

Being an innocent bystander, a model citizen, a Rotarian is not enough to keep you safe from rogue cops, tin-horn sheriffs, or other so-called law enforcement personnel. Who let these dogs out? Who uncorked this evil genie? What Nazi mentality makes a lethal enemy of those who had been sworn to "protect and serve" us?

I am pissed off!

My fellow Americans, we have been and are made war upon! The culture of fear, hate, prejudice, perversion and violence unleashed by the evil administration of one George W. Bush is largely to blame. The endemically corrupt GOP has 'stunk up the place'. No one is safe --not in your home, your car, your property! 'Probable cause' is often forgotten, just as often misquoted and misunderstood but, even worse, it is reviled by proto-fascists and certifiable psychopaths who would prefer the U.S. become the police state that they have tried mightily to create and support. This is what it means to live in a police state.

They are just some of the victims of wholesale torture taking place inside the U.S. prison system that we uncovered during a four-month investigation for Channel 4 . It’s terrible to watch some of the videos and realise that you’re not only seeing torture in action but, in the most extreme cases, you are witnessing young men dying.

Torture Inc. Americas Brutal Prisons

Perhaps because someone uncorked the bottle and unleashed the evil genie, there is renewed interest in the 'scientific' study of evil. Such a renewed study may have its roots in the work of Dr. Gustav Gilbert, the American psychologist who was tasked with interviewing the Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg. He believed evil to be an "utter lack of empathy". Certainly, this trait, this symptom of pure evil is seen throughout Bush's America. It is always characterized by an unmistakable inability of persons in 'power' to identify in any way with the victims of their abuse.
The term, "ponerology" is an obscure theological term that means the study of evil. Andrzej knew this, and decided to reclaim and rehabilitate this word for scientific use since, as it happens, our science really doesn't have a word for the study of "evil," per se. We need one.

The Trick of the Psychopath's Trade: Make Us Believe that Evil Comes from Others

Someone should conduct a study of the evil that Bush has loosed in the US --the evil epidemic of needless and unlawful tasering, the 'deputies' who assaulted and stripped naked an innocent woman who had merely called the department for help, the 'deputies' who brutally threw a paralyzed man from his wheelchair and laughed about it.


Now police are told they can use Taser guns on children

By JASON LEWIS - More by this author » Last updated at 15:27pm on 2nd September 2007

Police have been given the go-ahead to use Taser stun guns against children.

The relaxing of restrictions on the use of the weapons comes despite warnings that they could trigger a heart attack in youngsters.

Until now, Tasers - which emit a 50,000-volt electric shock - have been used only by specialist officers as a "non lethal" alternative to firearms.
American 'law enforcement' may have always been endemically crooked, appealing to incipient psychos in any case. Now, in Bush's America, where every evil impulse is rewarded and somehow passes into a 'mainstream' itself corrupt and rotten, evil is winked at, encouraged by 'those in power', practiced by unqualified sociopaths, sadists, and perverts with badges.

An addendum from the comments section:

ANY policeman/woman, ANY military person, ANY official, who chooses to use a Taser weapon, against ANy other guilty of RAPE, and can be charged with such offences. If the person being Tasered is then taken away by force, the charge is also kidnapping, which is worth $1.6 million dollars per day!!

Get them ALL to contact David_Wynn Miller and show them how!!!

The Three Irrefutable Facts That Shatter Bush's Official 911 Theory

By Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Nothing said by Bush about 911 is true. Bush put forward a crazy conspiracy theory about a world wide conspiracy of radical Arabs and incompetent pilots. Not a word of it can be believed! Three indisputable, verifiable facts utterly disprove everything said by Bush and apologists about 911.

Bush kicked up a lot of dust and hoped to hide out in the smokescreen. It hasn't worked. Three irrefutable facts lay waste to the official lies.
  1. No 757 crashed into the Pentagon!
  2. The wings and tail are huge surfaces areas --certainly bigger than the tiny hole said by official conspiracy theorists to have been the impact point! The hole would not have accommodated the fuselage, let alone the wings and tail which might have broken off to be found on the lawn but no such wreckage was eve found. Nor was there significant damage that might have been attributed to either wings or tail section or both. Neither was there evidence of wings or tail section! Even if the plane had "shredded" --as some have claimed --"80 tons of plane is still 80 tons of debris". That is due to the "conservation of matter and energy",i.e, matter is neither created nor destroyed. An airliner weight "X pounds" (without fuel) will leave that amount in wreckage when it crashes. Airliners do not pop into other dimensions via a "wormhole" and no one has dared claim that the Pentagon was anything other than a "money hole".
    "Wings that should have been sheared off by the impact are entirely absent.
    There is also substantial evidence of debris from a much smaller jet-powered aircraft inside the building. We conclude with a high degree of certainty that no Boeing 757 struck the building. We also conclude with a substantial degree of certainty that a smaller, single-engined aircraft, roughly the size and shape of an F-16, did, in fact, strike the building."
    Detailed analysis of the debris field, physical damage, and other factors in the alleged impact of a Boeing 757 on the Pentagon building on the morning of September 11, 2001 reveals an almost complete absence of debris expected from such an event. (Elliott 2003) The initial (pre-collapse) hole made by the alleged impact on the ground floor of Wedge One of the building is too small to admit an entire Boeing 757. In order to decide whether or not a Boeing 757 (or aircraft of comparable size) struck the Pentagon on the morning in question, a comprehensive review of all the debris and other physical evidence is hardly necessary. It turns out that a study of the wings alone suffices for the purpose.
    The analysis presented here is based entirely on standard and/or official sources, such as the engineering report issued under the auspices of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), as directed by an army engineering officer as chair. (ASCE 2003)
    --The Missing Wings, A Comparison of actual and expected wing debris resulting from the impact of a Boeing 757 on the Pentagon building (revised Dec 19, 2004), A. K. Dewdney, G. W. Longspaugh
    We are lead to believe that not only did the 757 penetrate the outer wall, but continued on to penetrate separate internal walls totaling 9 feet of reinforced concrete. The final breach of concrete was a nearly perfectly cut circular hole (see left) in a reinforced concrete wall, with no subsequent damage to the rest of the wall. (If we are to believe that somehow this aluminum aircraft did in fact reach this sixth final wall.)
    --A Boeing 757 did not hit the Pentagon, Michael Meyer, Mechanical Engineer
Johnny Cochran summed it up. "If it does not fit, you must acquit!" Likewise --if there is no wreckage, then the Bush cover story utterly falls apart. When all other contingencies -the official theories and cover stories -fail to hold up under scrutiny, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. The truth is: Bushco lied about the events of 911. They did so deliberately, knowing that all was false. [See also: The Missing Wings]

Airliners could not and did not bring down the towers of the WTC! 

Fires, presumably caused by airliner crashes at the Twin Towers of WTC did not melt the steel core and could not have caused the towers' collapse let alone a symetrical collapse into the building footprint ala a controlled demolition. The fires simply were not hot enough even to have weakened steel.
The temperatures generated by a hydrocarbon-fuelled office compartment fire are not capable of melting steel. A stoichiometric combustion of kerosene, generally regarded as dodecane, for example...
C12H26 + 18.5O2 +69.595N2 ===> 12CO2 + 13H2O + 69.595N2 + 7518 kJ
...would have at best the above 7,518 kJ locked into 2.712 kg of combustion products to yield an adiabatic flame temperature (AFT) of some 2,398 K or 2,125 C (it is about 130 K less after including the inevitable endothermic dissociation reactions at these temperatures in order to reach an equilibrium state). At standard temperature and pressure, one mole of an ideal gas occupies 22.4 liters; at 2,398 K the volume would have expanded by a factor of 2398/273, i.e. nearly 9 times, to 196.8 liters/mol. The 7.518 MJ is spread amongst 94.595 moles or 18.62 cubic meters of hot gaseous products. At some 0.146 kg/m^3, these are much lighter than air at STP. In order to melt a mere 1 kg of steel that would take up a volume of only 0.127 liters, at least 1 MJ would be required. If 1/7.518 of the enthalpy (heat) in the products was directed at the kilogram of steel, the temperature rise would be reduced from 2,105 K to a little above 1,825 K which would result in a temperature of a little over 1,845 C and still potentially hot enough to melt some steel. But in real-world conditions, flame and upper layer hot gas temperatures are well below the AFT, typically barely reaching 1,000 C and certainly well below the melting point of steel.

There were NO Arabs on Flight 77. 

If there were no Arabs on Flight 77, then the official theory must be completely discarded.
At last, some 184 un-identified remains were buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
A five-sided granite marker bearing the 184 names will be placed over a shared grave at Arlington National Cemetery — the nation's most prestigious burial ground — holding the unidentified remains. [emphasis mine, LH]

--Arlington National Cemetery
Of the 184, sixty-four were said to have been passengers of Flight 77, the flight which is said to have crashed into the Pentagon.
A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request, to obtain that autopsy list and you are invited to view it below. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. In my opinion the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable.
When airline disasters occur, airlines will routinely provide a manifest list for anxious families. You may have noticed that even before Sep 11th, airlines are pretty meticulous about getting an accurate headcount before takeoff. It seems very unlikely to me, that five Arabs sneaked onto a flight with weapons. This is the list provided by American of the 56 passengers. On September 27th, the FBI published photos of the “hijackers” of Flight 77.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), does a miraculous job and identifies nearly all the bodies on November 16th 2001.
The AFIP suggest these numbers; 189 killed, 125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on the plane. The AA list only had 56 and the list just obtained has 58. They did not explain how they were able to tell “victims” bodies from “hijacker” bodies. In fact, from the beginning NO explanation has been given for the extra five suggested in news reports except that the FBI showed us the pictures to make up the difference, and that makes it so.
--Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D, Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77
The numbers will never add up. Arlington National Cemetary says it interred 184. But AFIP says there were a total of 189 bodies --125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on flight 77. Arlington claims that the unidentified remains of 184 victims share a grave at Arlington National Cemetery.
A five-sided granite marker bearing the 184 names will be placed over a shared grave at Arlington National Cemetery — the nation's most prestigious burial ground — holding the unidentified remains.
--Arlington National Cemetary
I interpret that to mean that this "shared grave" is the final resting place for unidentified victims from both the Pentagon and Flight 77.

Five are unaccounted for --presumably the "terrorist" hijackers. But that does not account for the discrepancy for several reasons. Both Arlington and AFIP claim that there were 64 Pentagon workers. AFIP provided a list of 56 passengers of Flight 77. That''s only 120! If you exclude 5 terrorists from the AFIP's total of 189, you are still left with 64 "people" completely unaccounted for. Who the hell are they?
No Arabs wound up on the morgue slab; however, three ADDITIONAL people not listed by American Airlines sneaked in. I have seen no explanation for these extras. I did American [Airlines] the opportunity to “revise” their original list, but they have not responded. The new names are: Robert Ploger, Zandra Ploger, and Sandra Teague. The AFIP claims that the only “passenger” body that they were not able to identify is the toddler, Dana Falkenberg, whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified.
--Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D, Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77
These are just a tiny few of the myriad of facts that Bush loyalists cannot explain away or rationalize with the official conspiracy theory. The silver bullet is this: there were no arabs on the flight manifests when "officialdom" maintains that all the said hijackers were Arab.
Johnny Cochran won a famous murder trial with a single phrase which summed up his defense: "If it does not fit, you must acquit!" I rather think that a guilty party might be indicted just as simply: "No arabs on flight! You must indict!"These are fatal discrepancies in Bush's official conspiracy theory of 911. Any one of these glaring faults is enough to collapse the official 'theory', the official bald-faced lie.

But all are true. Therefore, nothing said by Bush about 911 can possibly be true. However, these are but a few of the fatal flaws and/or inconsistencies, impossibilities, outrages and absurdities to have issued from the Bush propaganda matrix. The tiny ditch and lack of wreckage in Pennsylvania, for example, support Donald Rumsfeld's 'misstatement' about the 'missile that shot down Flight 93'.

The obvious and admitted 'pulling' i.e, the 'controlled demolition' of Building 7, is enough in itself to dispense with critics who charge that there was not enough time to rig the buildings for demolition. The admitted controlled demolition of Bldg 7 is proof enough that wiring a building for demolition is not a problem if you own the building! Silverstein owned WTC and had access to every part of it. Method, motive, opportunity. Silverstein got $billions$ in insurance! $Billions$ would be considered motive in any criminal court at any time in any country. Except Bush's 'America'.

It is improbably coincidental that on the very day of the 911 attacks, Rudi Giuliani , who had set up an Office of Emergency Management and emergency command center on the 23rd floor of WTC7, abandoned that special bunker that had been designed precisely for such an event. Why? A real investigation of 911 would have asked that question. We, the people, are entitled to an answer. What are the odds that Rudi and crew would choose that very day to get the hell out of dodge? 3

Then there are Bush's 'odd' remarks about having seen the first plane crash the north tower on live TV. Only a pre-arranged, closed circuit set up delivering a signal to his improvised command central at a school house in Florida could make a truth of Bush's idiotic remark, a statement delivered in almost the same words on two occasions. Both can be found on the White House website. What can be done? I urge everyone who reads this to practice 'networking'. If you don't know a Federal Judge, perhaps you know someone who does. A Federal Judge can convene a Federal Grand Jury upon his own motion. A Federal Grand Jury can subpoena Bush himself as well as his cast of characters for which there is probable cause now to indict for numerous felonies and capital crimes, not the least of which is high treason, the waging of war against the people of the United States.Addendum:

Bush's official conspiracy theory was put forward in various statements by members of the Bush administration. Colin Powell, as I recall, may have been the first to name Al Qaeda specifically. The official theory is consistent only with regard to three basic components. Let's collapse them like a controlled demolition.

Al Qaeda, itself a 'terrorist conspiracy' said to have been led by Bin Laden, directed the attacks.

Several points undermine this theory, not the least of which is the relationship between Al Qaeda and the CIA, specifically, Richard Clark's revelation that Al Qaeda was created by the CIA, in their offices in Washington DC According to Clark, the al Qaeda's purpose was to help Saudi Arabia finance or, otherwise, bankroll Osama bin Laden, via the House of Saud, "in the Afghan war against the Soviet Union during the 1980's. Washington and Riyadh together contributed some $3.5 billion to the mujahideen." It is fair to ask: was al Qaeda acting under the direction and supervision of the CIA on 911? See: Al-Qaeda: A CIA protégé. Also: How the CIA created Osama bin Laden

Nineteen Arab Hijackers, working for al Qaeda, hijacked three airliners.

This is the weakest part of the official conspiracy theory. Those 'hijackers' who were said to have piloted 757s into WTC and the Pentagon were not even competent to fly Cessnas, let alone 757s. See: The Impossibility of Flying Heavy Aircraft Without Training and Hijack 'suspects' alive and well; At Least 7 of the 9/11 Hijackers are Still Alive. At last, Mohammed Atta, whom official theorists call the boss of the operation, called his father on September 12, presumably to assure him that he was still alive and well!

The airliners were crashed into the Pentagon and the Twin Towers of the WTC causing the collapse of the 'Twin Towers'.

As stated in the body of the article: no airliner ever crashed into the Pentagon. We might learn what, in fact, struck the Pentagon, if Bush would simply order the release of hundreds, perhaps, thousands of photos that were made of whatever it was that struck the Pentagon. A single, blurry, indistinct animated GIF raises more questions than it answers. It is most certainly not a picture of a 757, leaving in its wake a 'white plume' not normally associated with airliners of any size at any speed or altitude. Unlike other famous crashes --Lockerbie, the Space Shuttle Columbia --whatever might have been recovered from whatever it was that struck the Pentagon was never investigated, reconstructed, or examined by experts who might have identified its origin. Airliners do not vaporize at any speed less than that of light itself. If an 80 ton airliner had struck the Pentagon, 80 tons of debris, however mangled, could have been located, gathered, and accounted for. That did not happen. Not much needs to be said about the WTC. There are, however, two glaring deficiencies in the official theory.
  1. Kerosene fires could not possibly have melted or weakened the steel sufficiently to collapse any building in the WTC, certainly not the perfectly controlled demolitions that are seen in hundreds, possibly thousands of videos. [See: Why the Official Account Cannot Be True]
  2. Rarely mentioned is the fact that Airliner bodies are made of aluminum, a metal softer than steel. Yet, on 911, airliners of this soft metal are seen penetrating hard steel. Like at the Pentagon, not a single wing broke off upon impact. The WTC tower 'cores' are made of steel girders in a dense mesh framework. Official theorists have imagined 757s penetrating the steel framework, 'slicing' steel girders with soft aluminum wings. It could not have happened and didn't!  
Debris is said to have caused the collapse of Building 7. It had not been hit by any aircraft of any sort. Therefore only "controlled demolition" explains its picture perfect collapse. A  Bush theorist desperately posited that one of the twin towers fell over onto Building 7. Utter bunkum! That anyone would put forward such nonsense is a measure of desperation.

In summary: nothing said by Bush about anything has been true --EVER! How can Americans believe that Bush, having lied about everything else, would or could tell the truth about 911. He didn't. 911 is a bigger hoax than that perpetrated to begin the mass murder of over million Iraqi civilians. Bush is a threat to the entire world and must be stopped.

Bush's Unitary Executive Ends the Rule of Law, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Separation of Powers

Bush has decreed his "long term plan" for Iraq, committing the US, without Congressional authority, to a permanent presence. His decree is a poke in the eye to the public, the congress, the rule of law! Bush believes himself to be above the rule of law, the authority of Congress and the courts. When England was confronted by Charles I, a monarch who likewise presumed to be above Parliament, the English simply marched Charles out onto an improvised platform at the Banqueting House in Whitehall where they proceeded to chop off his head!
President Bush's plan to forge a long-term agreement with the Iraqi government that could commit the US military to defending Iraq's security would be the first time such a sweeping mutual defense compact has been enacted without congressional approval, according to legal specialists.

After World War II, for example - when the United States gave security commitments to Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, and NATO members - Presidents Truman and Eisenhower designated the agreements as treaties requiring Senate ratification. In 1985, when President Ronald Reagan guaranteed that the US military would defend the Marshall Islands and Micronesia if they were attacked, the compacts were put to a vote by both chambers of Congress.

By contrast, Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki have already agreed that a coming compact will include the United States providing "security assurances and commitments" to Iraq to deter any foreign invasion or internal terrorism by "outlaw groups." But a top White House official has also said that Bush does not intend to submit the deal to Congress.

--Boston Globe, Bush plan for Iraq would be a first

I had wondered why I am so bored with the primary process, this field of candidates, the coverage, the speeches, what passes for debate. I am bored because it's all as beside the point as the medieval debate about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin! It might as well have been scripted and given what I've learned about political consulting --it is scripted! I've heard all the talking points in focus groups. I can predict every question and every answer. This 'election' is for show! This election is a sop to those who have not gotten the news: American Democracy is over. Bush rules by decree. If he should decide to hang around, who's 'gonna' throw him out? The Military? Nope! The Congress? Nope! The Supreme Court? Stop me! My sides are hurting!

Everyone is just playing their roles. It is as if the candidates of both major parties had a conference and decided: we won't talk about how George W. Bush has ended, perhaps forever, the rule of law in the United States. Constitution: R.I.P! You won't know what you had until it's gone.

Unless something is done, you will just have to get used to more stories about how innocent folk get tasered, jailed, or roughed up for daring to practice 'free speech'. Get used to a permanent US presence in Iraq! Get used to Bush's evil smirk! Get used to GOP bullshit! Get used to being spied on at the mall, in your car, even at home with devices that can literally see through walls. Those devices exist.

Everyone, it seems, from Bill Maher on Larry King Live to Virginia Tech Professor Theodore Fuller, believes Bush will be remembered as the very worst President in US history. Fuller's list includes the perpetual nature of Bush's obvious failure in Iraq. It includes Bush's failure to reform Social Security, though I am suspicious of efforts to "reform" what is, in fact, the Government's only success story. What I have not heard except via the 'blogosphere' is why! The 'why' should top the list and should have been blazened atop every major daily in the nation. Instead, the truth is whispered if at all: Bush destroyed the very concept of the "rule of law" and, more specifically, "Due Process of Law" because he is the tool of America's moneyed 'elite'.
It's not that they lied about justifications for war, but in their failure to allow oversight into the processes that produced those lies. It's not in the firing of federal attorneys and the refusal to substantiate the firings, but in the pure partisanship of their actions. It's not their countless refusals to comply with subpoenas from Congress or Freedom of Information Act from the people, but in their arrogated stance, setting themselves above the requirements themselves.

Once when challenged for his unwillingness to submit to the rule of law in an obvious snub of the Constitution, Bush screamed, "Stop throwing the Constitution in my face. It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"

And thus our Constitution has now become what Bush has made it. This annihilation of the foundational document of our republic was orchestrated by a president who swore an oath of honor to protect it, a devout Christian who promised to restore honor and integrity to the Oval Office.

Congress, in its acquiescence and subservience, is equally culpable. When Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced, "impeachment is off the table," she not only absolved Bush of all previous transgressions but paved a figurative superhighway for any to come. There's a reason Congress's approval ratings are even lower than the administration's.

--Michael Abraham, Bush's legacy is the end of law

Bush could not have put himself above the law without help from Republicans of all stripes as well as timely betrayals and sellouts by key Democrats. Without effective opposition, Bush-Cheney have enabled a "unitary executive"! A dubious doctrine without precedent in American history, it is the belief that the "President" is above regulation, above oversight or supervision, above the decisions of the courts, including the Supreme Court, above laws passed by Congress, above all responsibility to the people.
"[Since Watergate] I have repeatedly seen an erosion of the powers and the ability of the president of the United States to do his job. ... One of the things that I feel an obligation [to do] ... is to pass on our offices in better shape than we found them to our successors."

--VP Dick Cheney, [Interview with Cokie Roberts] New York Times, Recent Flexing of Presidential Powers Had Personal Roots in Ford White House, SCOTT SHANE. January 2002,

I submit to Bush, Cheney, their NEOCON base, the Republican party, and assorted enablers inside the Democratic party that this "doctrine" is utter bullshit! Not even European monarchs --at the very height of their power and influence --could boast or wield such power.

It is ironic that at the height of his "power", Bush is among the least popular "Presidents" in American history. What then is the source of his power? Bush, addressing a gathering of well-heeled Republicans and other representatives of corporate power called them "his base". And --so they were. 'They' are an increasingly tiny elite which alone benefits from GOP tax cuts and the enrichment of the Military/Industrial complex.
The influence of the cabal begins at Yale, where Skull and Bones has appropriated university funds for its own use, leaving the school virtually impoverished. Skull and Bones' corporate shell, the Russell Trust Association, owns nearly all of the university's real estate, as well as most of the land in Connecticut. Skull and Bones has controlled Yale's faculty and campus publications so that students cannot speak openly about it. "Year by year," the campus's only anti-society publication stated during its brief tenure in 1873, "the deadly evil is growing."

The year in the tomb at Yale instills within members an unwavering loyalty to Skull and Bones. Members have been known to stab their Skull and Bones pins into their skin to keep them in place during swimming or bathing. The knights (as the student members are called) learn quickly that their allegiance to the society must supersede all else: family, friendships, country, God. They are taught that once they get out into the world, they are expected to reach positions of prominence so that they can further elevate the society's status and help promote the standing of their fellow Bonesmen.

--Alexandra Robbins, George W. Bush and the Brotherhood of Death, 'Secrets of the Tomb' Skull and Bones, the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power

The movies have discovered Skull and Bones. The most recent entry, The Good Shepherd, directed by Robert de Niro, explores a symbiotic relationship between Yale's super secret Skull and Bones and the equally secret CIA. Another thriller advertises itself with a Hollywood logline: A secret society so powerful, it can give you anything…at a price., the subtitle to The Skulls, a new thriller by Rob Cohen.

Interestingly, both CIA and Skull and Bones are called "brotherhoods". Both apparently control those inside by compromising them. Both exhibit all the characteristics of kooky cults. In all, the individual is subordinated to the group. The Faustian term for this is "selling your soul". There are more prosaic descriptions but none as accurate. Both "Skull and Bones" and its ally, the CIA, are evil cults. [See: Ronald Reagan is Still Dead!, and The Role of the Psychopath in the Generation of Global Evil]

The Good Shepherd is an Academy Award-nominated 2006 film directed by Robert De Niro and stars Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie. The main story lines are credible and set against historical events. If it is not literally "the untold story of the birth of counter-intelligence in the Central Intelligence Agency", it is most certainly true in terms of the relationship of Skull and Bones to the CIA and in terms of the evil, pernicious effects both have had on the US, indeed, the world!

The film is most powerful when it traces the common origins of the CIA and the Skull and Bones and compares the dark results of both. I defy any rational person not a part of either cult to watch this movie and resist the conclusion that both the CIA and the Skull and Bones are evil organizations, cults in fact, that have harmed this nation, the people, the rule of law, and civilization itself. Down with both!

The following is a video playlist beginning with a trailer for the film "The Good Shephard", followed by two clips from a well-sourced documentary series exposing the Skull and Bones cult, and, at last, "We Do", the Simpsons brilliant lampoon at every cult from Bilderberg, Tri-Lateral Commission, to Skull and Bones:

An addendum: writer Alexandra Robbins recalls her 'encounter' with a bonesman.
"Who controls the British crown?"

"Who keeps the metric system down? "

"We do! We do. . . "

" Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We do! We do. "

Certainly, Skull and Bones does cross boundaries in order to attempt to stay out of the public spotlight. When I wrote an article about the society for the Atlantic Monthly in May 2000, an older Bonesman said to me, “If it’s not portrayed positively, I’m sending a couple of my friends after you.” After the article was published, I received a telephone call at my office from a fellow journalist, who is a member of Skull and Bones.

He scolded me for writing the article—”writing that article was not an ethical or honorable way to make a decent living in journalism,” he condescended —and then asked me how much I had been paid for the story. When I refused to answer, he hung up. Fifteen minutes later, he called back.

“I have just gotten off the phone with our people.” “Your people?” I snickered.
“Yes. Our people.” He told me that the society demanded to know where I got my information.

“I’ve never been in the tomb and I did nothing illegal in the process of reporting this article,” I replied.

“Then you must have gotten something from one of us. Tell me whom you spoke to. We just want to talk to them,” he wheedled. “I don’t reveal my sources.”
Then he got angry. He screamed at me for a while about how dishonorable I was for writing the article.

“A lot of people are very despondent over this!” he yelled. “Fifteen Yale juniors are very, very upset!” I thanked him for telling me his concerns.
“There are a lot of us at newspapers and at political journalism institutions,” he coldly hissed. “Good luck with your career”—and he slammed down the phone.

USNORTHCOM’s official response to Commission on National Guard and Reserves Final Report

February 1, 2008

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- U.S. Northern Command’s primary mission is Homeland Defense, and the command stands ready to respond to any homeland defense or civil support mission requirement.

“The U.S. military absolutely has the capacity to respond to potential threats within our nation today. It will get better in this coming year and continue to improve beyond that,” said Gen. Gene Renuart, USNORTHCOM commander.

Established in 2002 as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, USNORTHCOM has dramatically expanded DoD’s focus on all aspects of Homeland Defense, including planning and exercising, as well as organizing new headquarters and units that are specifically tailored for domestic response.

Hannity’s Afternoon Meltdown

Boy, oh boy. Something is happening with the ‘true’ conservatives on AM Talk Radio. I tuned into Hannity see what had happened today and the guy just went off on what can only be described as a lick-spittle tirade! Apparently Rich Galen wrote a piece today and noted how conservatives tearing down McCain is basically doing the liberal media’s work for them. It is a fair if slightly exaggerated point to make, especially after years of the right tearing down El Presidente Jorge Bush for disagreeing with them.

But something inside Hannity snapped over this and he was in the throws of insanity. He claimed those who question his actions are pompous, arrogant, hanger-ons who are simply trying to angle for jobs in the new administration and have sold their principles for money. And he was just getting started! The most hilarious (and pathetic) part came where he declared himself and other angry and raving talk show hosts the future of America! You could almost see him stand up and salute himself.

Clearly Hannity and his sharp-tongued friends are not as able to take criticism as they are at dishing it out (with insults and demeaning undertones). Geez, it was just one man’s view of the coalition self-destructing. I think what was most bizarre was how he kept trying to claim he was upbeat and things were great through out his tirade (Dude, there was so much anger and hurt I don’t know who you think you are kidding?). He also started the whole thing by claiming he got all these media calls today - as if to prove to himself he is still relevant. He then went on to say he had the power of the airwaves and people in DC better be careful or he would close their access. The threats were really something else and went on for quite a while. ...
