What's the dirtiest part of your body? It's your mind. Frank Zappa

"'Israel preparing its own attack'

The newspaper said that Israel recently leaked its own attack plans,
if the United States does not act. The Israeli plan includes aerial
attacks, commando raids, a possibility of a missile attack, and even
bombs carried on the backs of dogs. The newspaper quotes Israeli
newspapers which said that Israel constructed an exact replica of the
Natanz nuclear development facility, but the United States does not
believe that the operation can succeed without using nuclear weapons"

What does the military learn from suicide bombers?

"bombs carried on the backs of dogs"

Silence kills and silence is complicity
Gabriele Zamparini, The Cat's dream
...Underneath Patrick Cockburn’s article "Iraq three years on: Don't look away" (The Independent, 8 April 2006) your newspaper presents some number "Then and Now". About IRAQI DEATHS, you write: Military 4,895 - 6,370, Civilian 33,821 - 37,943. Iraq Body Count, from where you got the numbers, simply records the Iraqi civilians deaths reported in the English language media with an online website. On the IBC website, you may read: "It is likely that many if not most civilian casualties will go unreported by the media." A few weeks ago, the Independent wrote: "But IBC admits that with the increasing inability of journalists to move around and report freely, its method of monitoring civilian deaths is becoming increasingly inaccurate. What evidence has emerged indicates that a widely ridiculed study published in The Lancet in autumn 2004, estimating that at least 100,000 civilians had died violently since the war began, might not be so inaccurate."...

Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Saturday, 8 April 2006.
Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board, the Free Arab Voice.
...In a dispatch posted at 5:25pm Makkah time Saturday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the declaration by Qasim Yahya, the official spokesman for the puppet "Iraqi Ministry of Health," on Thursday that he would not be able to give out thedaily number of bodies taken in by Iraqi hospitals because he had been specifically ordered not to do so by the I raqi puppet "Prime Minister" has aroused considerable concern over the American-installed regime’s desire to cover up the reality in the country...

Bush and Cheney Get Over On Fitzgerald
Evelyn Pringle
With the latest revelations in the CIA leak case, the question on the minds of most Americans, is whether Bush and Cheney were the masterminds in an organized plot to destroy Joe Wilson by revealing his wife's name and status as a undercover agent of the CIA. Hands down, yes they were. And a brilliant scheme it was; especially when one considers that the combined IQ of Bush and Cheney is probably not equal to that of a goat... A concerted effort to destroy a c ritics is not a jailable offense. But it would seem that because they knew Valerie Plame was an under-cover operative, and knew the information was classified, that such a disclosure would be in legal terms "willful." In other words, a disclosure of information on purpose, even though they knew it was classified...

Death Threats of a Criminally Insane Miscreant
Kurt Nimmo
I was two-thirds of the way through a blog entry on Bush’s desire to nuke Iran when I received an email pointing me to an article by Sunil K. Sharma on the Dissident Voice website. "CounterPunch co-editor Jeffrey St. Clair this morning brought to my attention a screed by a disturbed individual named George M. Weinert V of Chicago, Illinois, whose blog, American Jihad, features a March 24, 2006 article (to put it charitably) that reads clearly as an inciteme nt to violence," Sharma writes, "a call to 'hunt down the treasonous operators’ of Dissident Voice, CounterPunch, Uruknet, and other 'radical left wing hippy commie Muslim sucking’ (wow, what a mouthful) web sites…. Particularly singled out for targeting in Weinert’s deranged ramblings are Dissident Voice contributing writers Mike Whitney, Ken Sanders, as well as our friend and past contributing writer Kurt Nimmo. Weinert is hardly subtle in issuing what is clearly a death threat against us"...

Letter from Baqhdad: The Growing Sectarian Divide
David Enders, The Nation
...Mahdi commander Tamimi does not deny that rogue Mahdi elements are carrying out assassinations. "We have had to remove many people from the Mahdi Army," he says. "They are fighting for their sect; they don't care about Muqtada al-Sadr." But Sadr's own language has created a serious gray area, perhaps intentionally. He has approved killing of "takfiris"--Sunni extremists who consider Shiites heretics--and former Baathists. In his talks to members of the Mahdi Army, he makes it clear that he believes Sunni members of the government fall into these categories. "Saleh Mutlaq--he was a member of the Baath Party," Tamimi says of one of the most prominent Sunni politicians in the government (...) "We are buying more weapons," says Tamimi, the Mahdi Army commander. "The situation in Iraq is very bad, and we are ready to fight. Saddam had weapons factories in Abu Ghraib and Ramadi and Falluja. If the Americans leave, [Sunni insurgents] will have these weapons, and we don't." "We are all the army of the Iman [Mahdi Army]," says Naim Hussein, who lost three cousins in sectarian fighting. "We are waiting for the green light from our leaders. If there were really a civil war, there would be no Sunnis left"...

Why Buratha Mosque?
Baghdad Dweller
...Since yesterday and I was thinking, I read something about Buratha mosque few months ago but I don’t remember what it was exactly. Here is what I know about Baratha: Few months ago I posted maps of locations used by the government as prisons, execution and torture centers, you still can axis the post here: Maps of Iraq’s secret prisons. If you look at map number 4, you will see that the locations are numbered, the circle marked as number 5 is Baratha mosque. Since this govern ment was in power (approximately less than a year ago), now and then people find "mini" mass graves, dead bodies dumped in the middle of nowhere with injuries made by gunshots or drill machines. Two months ago people found 45 bodies dumped behind Buratha Mosque...

Official: Iraq in 'Undeclared Civil War'
MARIAM FAM, Associated Press Writer
A car bomb killed six people Saturday near a Shiite shrine south of Baghdad, and the death toll from the deadliest attack of the year rose to nearly 90. A senior official warned Iraq was in an ``undeclared civil war'' that can be curbed only by a strong government and greater powers for security services. With sectarian tensions rising, U.S. Marines on Saturday beat back the largest attack in weeks by Sunni Arab insurgents in the western city of Ramadi - another sign of the crisis facing this country three years after Baghdad fell to U.S. forces...

THE IRAN PLANS
SEYMOUR M. HERSH
The Bush Administration, while publicly advocating diplomacy in order to stop Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon, has increased clandestine activities inside Iran and intensified planning for a possible major air attack. Current and former American military and intelligence officials said that Air Force planning groups are drawing up lists of targets, and teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to establish contact wit h anti-government ethnic-minority groups. The officials say that President Bush is determined to deny the Iranian regime the opportunity to begin a pilot program, planned for this spring, to enrich uranium...

Saddam’s pilots hunted down by death squads
Ali Rifat and Hamoudi Saffar, The Sunday Times
IRAQI pilots who flew in Saddam Hussein’s air force are being targeted by armed militias in an apparent witch-hunt against veterans who fought in the war against Iran two decades ago. According to official military statistics, 182 former pilots and 416 senior military officers had been killed by the beginning of January 2006 as part of the campaign. At least 836 pilots and high-ranking military officials have fled to neighbo uring Arab states. Many of the assassinations have been blamed on militias from the Shi’ite Badr Brigade who were trained and financed by Iran and who now form the backbone of Iraq’s police and special forces...

Torturing the Truth
Mick Youther
President Bush has assured Americans that "We do not torture" . Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has traveled around the world, assuring everyone that "We do not torture" . I guess it all depends on your definition of "torture".
• "Torture under the law is described as cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. Waterboarding or mock drownings, sleep deprivation, beatings, shackles and other horrors apparently do not fall into the administration’s definition of torture." --Helen Thomas, D.C.-based columnist for the Hearst Newspapers, 12/11/05...

Plenty of Opportunities to Impeach Bush
Diane E. Dees, Mother Jones
...here are just a few of the March violations: Bush signed the spending bill, knowing that violated a Constitutional requirement that the bill must first pass in both chambers. He violated the material witness law by using it as preventive detention authority who could commit terrorist acts some day but for whom there is no cause for criminal charges. He violated the Clean Air Act by loosening emission standards for aging coal-fired power plant s. The Clean Air Act makes it clear that only Congress may make such a decision. In a legal brief written for the US Supreme Court, Bush cited evidence from a debate by two Republican senators. There was no such debate. The evidence was manufactured by the White House...

GI Special 4D8: The GI Anti-War Movement - April 8, 2006
Thomas F. Barton
..."Sir, No Sir," the untold story of the GI movement to end the war in Vietnam, is a documentary. It’s not a work of nostalgia. It’s an activist film, and it comes at a time when GI resistance to the current war is spreading throughout the United States. There are more than 100 films -- fiction and nonfiction -- about the war in Vietnam. Not one deals seriously with the most pivotal events of the time -- the anti-war actions of GIs with in the military. The three-decade blackout of GI resistance is not due to any lack of evidence. Information about the resistance has always been available. According to the Pentagon, over 500,000 incidents of desertion took place between 1966 and 1977. Officers were fragged. Entire units refused to enter battle...

Eyewitness testimony concerning Israeli war crimes
Xymphora
International lawyers are looking for eyewitness testimony concerning the Israeli war crimes of house demolitions, killings, and torture. It is nice to go after the big wigs, but I think it would also be useful to nail a few of the Caterpillar drivers and child murderers. As Israel becomes increasingly uninhabitable, people are going to want the option to live elsewhere, and the stark prospect that there is no other place to go without facing a stiff ja il sentence may scare some of the IDF thugs into acting like human beings.

The Arab Baath Socialist Party
On the 7th April we celebrate the fifty ninth anniversary of the Baath with the last three years of the ongoing US invasion and occupation, christened by the blood of thousands and thousands of martyrs and the suffering of the thousands detainees in the Occupiers and their stooges imprisonment camps, the ordeals of millions of orphans, widows, and devastated moms and families.. Indeed! The cr adle of civilization, Iraq, has been turned into a land ruled by the jungle law and a free arena for gangsters, murderers and chaos and where life has stopped its course under the slogans of freedom and democracy. This is the model the US criminal administration is trying to market and to sell to the world...

The truth about Libby's statements to the grand jury claiming the President authorized a leak of classified information
John W. Dean, FindLaw
Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has now revealed in court filings bombshell information that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby told the grand jury investigating the leak of Valerie Plame-Wilson's covert CIA identity. According to Fitzgerald's filings, Libby said that he was authorized by the President and Vice President to leak classified information to New York Times reporter Jud ith Miller. This revelation has been accompanied by a number of public misstatements, which call for correction. The most blatant of these is the claim that Fitzgerald's filing indicates that the President authorized the release of Valerie Plame's covert status at the CIA. In fact, the document is conspicuously silent on this fact. The filing does indicate that the President authorized the release of classified information, but it was different information - a National Intelligence Estimate that had been classified pursuant to an executive order...

How bad is the situation in Iraq?
Eli Stephens, Left I on the News
The death of dozens of people, day after day, certainly tells part of the story. So does this: The [Iraq Ministry of the Interior] warned people to stay away from crowded places like mosques and market places. Mosques and markets are, needless to say, always crowded, at least at the times when people have things to do there. Which means that the Iraqi police are warning the people of their country to stop shopping and stop going to prayers. Nothing important...

Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board, the Free Arab Voice.
...In response to Friday’s murderous bombing of the Shi'i Buratha Mosque in Baghdad and Thursday’s deadly attack on the Shi'i Shrine of 'Ali in an-Najaf, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq, the highest Sunni religious authority in occupied Iraq, issued a statement condemning those attacks and blaming plotters who seek to partition Iraq for the assaults. W ithout specifically naming the United States, the Association of Muslim Scholars in their statement linked the bombings to plans for a "three-state solution" that would partition Iraq into a Kurdish, Sunni Arab, and Shi'i Arab state as laid out by Leslie Gelb, President Emeritus of the US Council on Foreign Relations, in his often-quoted New York Times article of 26 November 2003...

Iraq: Victims of Violence
Sarah Meyer

The accomplices who supported this war with depleted uranium and napalm bombs, torture and "rendition" – the members of Congress, the Senate, Parliament, Stephen Cambone and the US/UK Intelligence community, the US lawyers and the UK Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith – the PNAC 1998 signatories, the weapons makers, the security firms, the mercenaries, the corporate contract signe rs, the oil Tsars – will they twist their hands, pace the room, feel suicidal? Will those responsible for this monstrous war in Iraq – George Bush, Tony Blair, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfovitz – will they ever have all the tortured, dead and future dead of Iraq before their eyes, awake or asleep, daily, for the rest of their life on earth?...

Compromising Americans’ Civil Liberties
Walter M. Brasch
Two weeks before President Bush signed Congressional legislation that made permanent all but two sections of the USA PATRIOT Act, State College, Pa., became the 397th American community to reaffirm the belief that the Constitution and Bill of Rights take precedence over any federal law. Not one of those resolutions should have been necessary. Nor should the legislatures of eight states—Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, Montana, and Vermont— have had to pass legislation affirming the rights of all Americans. But they had to, and they did...

Neocon Plan to Wreck the Economy
Kurt Nimmo
If we are to believe Sterling Seagrave, "co-author of Gold Warriors and an extremely well-connected financial source in both the US and China as well as Europe," the White House, that is to say the Straussian neocons in control of the White House, have ordered the Federal Reserve to print a whopping two trillion in funny (or not so funny fiat) money. "The U.S. Treasury is allegedly running printing presses 24/7 to accommodate that order" and this "probably explains why t he US Treasury Secretary resigned several months ago and was replaced by a Bush flunkey, and why Greenspan resigned from the Fed several weeks ago, not wanting to go down with the Titanic…. We have been predicting this over the past two or three years, as the inevitable consequence of the Bush administration’s bizarre policies, although we were not certain exactly when it would occur"...

Spectacular lies led to Bush's illegal unnecessary war on Iraq

NOTICE: Due to Presidential Executive Orders,

the National Security
Agency (NSA) and FISA laws may have been ignored, and this email read
and placed in your file without warning, warrant, or notice.
They may do this without any judicial or legislative oversight. You
have no recourse, nor protection from this intrusion on your personal
freedoms. You may not review your file which is secret. The
President reserves the right to use "signing statements" to give himself
permission to ignore the law, as he is above accountability. As Nixon
said, "If the president does it, it is not illegal." If you are not with
us, you are for the terrorists; be aware that dissent is considered
sedition: resistance to lawful authority. It may be considered treason
to question authority; as it is un-American and unpatriotic to criticize
the actions of your President.

An Average Joe's Spectacular Lies
By William Rivers Pitt
t r u t h o u t | Perspective
03 April 2006
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/040306J.shtml

"Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle which fits them all."
--Edmund Burke
Page four of Sunday's Washington Post carried a story titled "The
President as Average Joe," which described how George W. Bush is trying
once again to cast himself as a regular fella so as to boost his anemic
poll numbers. "As he takes to the road to salvage his presidency,"
reported the Post, "Bush is letting down his guard and playing up his
anti-intellectual, regular-guy image."
Most of us, presumably, know enough

"Average Joe" types to fill a room. Most of us, presumably, don't know a
single "Average Joe" type who could pull off a trick like the one
reported by the New York Times last week. The issue centered, once
again, around a memo that was drafted before the invasion of Iraq.

"During a private two-hour meeting in the Oval Office on Jan. 31, 2003,"
read the Times, "[Bush] made clear to Prime Minister Tony Blair of
Britain that he was determined to invade Iraq without the second
resolution, or even if international arms inspectors failed to find
unconventional weapons, said a confidential memo about the meeting
written by Mr. Blair's top foreign policy adviser and reviewed by the
New York Times."
"The memo indicates the two leaders envisioned a quick victory
and a transition to a new Iraqi government that would be complicated,
but manageable," continued the Times report. "Mr. Bush predicted that it
was 'unlikely there would be internecine warfare between the different
religious and ethnic groups.' Mr. Blair agreed with that assessment. The
memo also shows that the president and the prime minister acknowledged
that no unconventional weapons had been found inside Iraq. Faced with
the possibility of not finding any before the planned invasion, Mr. Bush
talked about several ways to provoke a confrontation, including a
proposal to paint a United States surveillance plane in the colors of
the United Nations in hopes of drawing fire, or assassinating Mr.
Hussein."
Quite a nifty trick for an Average Joe, yes? This was from the
same regular fella who ever-so-earnestly told journalist Helen Thomas
last week that he didn't want war, because no president wants war. Here
we have merely another lie, an accent in a symphony of lies. If Bush did
not want war, why decide upon an attack despite the absence of the
public motivator for attack, the weapons of mass destruction? Why try to
goad Hussein into a fight?
Remember when the administration made that humorous little
video of George searching the Oval Office for the weapons of mass
destruction way back when? It was truly an "Average Joe" moment that, in
light of the revelations afforded by this pre-war memo, brings the
yellow bile up the back of the throat.
Seven more American soldiers died in Iraq over the last few days,
bringing the total to 2,332. It is difficult to count the number of
civilians who have been slaughtered in the
it-isn't-a-civil-war-not-really violence of the last several weeks. It
takes a special kind of "Average Joe" to get so many people killed in so
short a time thanks to lies of such width and breadth. Most "Average
Joes," after all, lie about sex or fishing or their bowling score from
Saturday night.
Most "Average Joes," likewise, enjoy being considered
straight-shooters. They don't hide from hard truths and expect to be
able to handle whatever comes their way. Mr. Bush, it seems, would
rather be massaged with pleasing fictions from his staff, and is
perfectly happy to have his handlers encase him in bubble-wrap to
protect him from the aftershocks resulting from astonishingly bad
decisions.
Reporter Murray Wass, writing for the National Journal, wrote another
essay last week that exposed more of the lies that were used to trick
the people of this nation into supporting the unnecessary and criminal
invasion of Iraq. "Karl Rove, President Bush's chief political adviser,"
wrote Waas, "cautioned other White House aides in the summer of 2003
that Bush's 2004 re-election prospects would be severely damaged if it
was publicly disclosed that he had been personally warned that a key
rationale for going to war had been challenged within the
administration. Rove expressed his concerns shortly after an informal
review of classified government records by then-Deputy National Security
Adviser Stephen J. Hadley determined that Bush had been specifically
advised that claims he later made in his 2003 State of the Union address
- that Iraq was procuring high-strength aluminum tubes to build a
nuclear weapon - might not be true."
"The pre-election damage-control effort in response to
(Ambassador Joseph) Wilson's allegations and the broader issue of
whether the Bush administration might have misrepresented intelligence
information to make the case for war had three major components,"
continued Waas. "Blame the CIA for the use of the Niger information in
the president's State of the Union address; discredit and undermine
Wilson; and make sure that the public did not learn that the president
had been personally warned that the intelligence assessments he was
citing about the aluminum tubes might be wrong."
It is disturbing enough to encompass the hard fact that there
has not been, at any point, an element of "incompetence" in the process
that has left us in such a deranged state in Iraq. Virtually every item
on the Bush administration's wish list has been obtained in the last
four years, thanks to the invasion, occupation and conveniently
subsequent mess that has followed. Objectively, one must know that a
barrage of falsehoods was required to create such a situation. To see
these lies exposed one after another, like a long line of sausage links,
would seem to be beyond tolerance.
Sadly, our collective ability to absorb and discard such
terrifying information appears to be without limit. The revelations
offered by the New York Times regarding Bush's pre-invasion decision to
go to war no matter what, and his decision to goad Iraq into a war
whether or not they posed a threat, passed through the waters of the
mainstream media with nary a ripple. The same went for Mr. Waas's
report; the information he provided in such scathing detail was met by
the mainstream press with a thunderous nothing.
It is almost amusing. The pundits and politicos are justifying each
other's vapid and useless existence these days by carrying forth an
empty debate as to whether or not Mr. Bush and his people lied us into a
war. Yet when hard evidence of these lies is presented in stark black
and white, the response is a whistling silence.
The duality is astonishing; if you are callow enough to subject
yourself to the dreck that passes for news on television, you might
actually see someone acknowledge the existence of the evidence of these
lies before turning on a dime to claim that no one lied about anything.
Maybe, just maybe, you'll see someone claim the administration is
"incompetent."
No one who lies so often or so effectively can be described as
incompetent. This kind of thing requires nimble skills combined with an
utter absence of conscience.
"Iraq is becoming a country that America should be ashamed to
support," reads a chilling New York Times editorial from Sunday, "let
alone occupy. The nation as a whole is sliding closer to open civil war.
In its capital, thugs kidnap and torture innocent civilians with
impunity, then murder them for their religious beliefs. The rights of
women are evaporating. The head of the government is the ally of a
radical anti-American cleric who leads a powerful private militia that
is behind much of the sectarian terror."
Not a bad day's work for an Average Joe.

David McGowan

"It Can't Happen Here" Edition
http://www.davesweb.cnchost.com/nwsltr81.html

At the risk of offending anyone out there, I really need to ask a question here: what the hell is the matter with you people? And by “you people,” I don’t mean specifically the regular readers of these newsletters, but rather the American people in general. So to all you John and Jane Q. Publics out there, let me rephrase the question: what the hell does it take to get a reaction out of you?

I realize, of course, that there has been a serious dumbing-down of American society and culture over the years. And I realize that government operatives have virtually complete control over the flow of information, so that virtually every thing you read, hear or see is, at best, an approximation of reality. And I realize that you have been systematically conditioned, over the course of many decades, to revere the institutions of this society – the very same institutions whose spokesmen are routinely called upon to serve you up a nice steaming platter of lies.

None of that, however, fully explains the near complete paralysis of the American people as a whole. So let me ask the question once again: what the hell does it take to get a reaction out of you? Let's quickly run through a partial list of things that, thus far, have failed to inspire you to summon your inner Howard Beales: two consecutive stolen presidential elections; back-to-back wars, both of them unprovoked and brazenly illegal, with more on the horizon; the deaths of well over two thousand of your sons and daughters in Central Asia and the Middle East, and the maiming and disfiguring of thousands more; the ongoing slaughter of tens of thousands of Afghans and Iraqis; countless corporate/political scandals directly tied to the Bush mob; diligent efforts by a veritable army of 9-11 skeptics (including a growing list of people that some of you might find more credible than us wacky Internet 'conspiracy theorists') to convince you that the official story of the ‘terrorist’ attacks of September 11 is a nothing more than a fairy tale; passage of the Patriot Act, and various other attacks on your civil, privacy, and due process rights; the entirely preventable deaths of an unknown number of people in New Orleans; military occupation of southern Louisiana; sanctioning of secret military tribunals; revelations of the widespread use of, and official sanction of, various forms of torture; getting slapped in the face with the Abu Ghraib photos; indefinite, warrantless detentions without access to legal counsel; illegal domestic surveillance; open witch-hunting of ‘liberal’ members of academia (though it is perfectly acceptable for a former Phoenix Program assassin and torturer to educate your children); gross invasions of your privacy – at airports, at sporting events, when entering many public buildings, even when sitting at home on your computer; massive cuts in social spending, even while hundreds of billions of dollars are spent waging war and militarizing domestic law enforcement; massive tax cuts that primarily benefit corporate America; the steady erosion of the nation’s education and healthcare systems; trashing of the environment and environmental protections; the accumulation of an almost unfathomable level of debt; and the act of grand theft masquerading as Medicare ‘reform.'

Through all of this and more, you have sat silently by. So again I must ask: what the hell will it take? How much worse does it have to get? How much worse will you allow it to get? And if you continue to sit by and do nothing, who do you think is going to save you from the increasingly bleak future we face? Who do you think is going to stop all the madness for you?

Amazingly enough, some of you actually seem to believe that a 'censure' resolution is the answer to the nation's woes, as if a firm pronouncement of "Bad George!" – perhaps coupled with a swat with a rolled-up newspaper – will effect a drastic change in the national landscape. Others seem to think that impeachment proceedings will rid the country of its diseased organs, but how you have convinced yourselves of such a bizarre notion is beyond my level of understanding. I know that a lot of phony ‘progressive’ websites regularly offer up such claims as some sort of political pacifier, but that doesn’t mean that you have to eagerly suckle that teat.

Who do you think is going to conduct impeachment proceedings, or pass a censure resolution? The venerable United States Congress? The very same Congress that just overwhelmingly passed an extension of the Patriot Act? As I recall, when the act was first passed, you dutifully bought into the lie that many of the congressmen who voted "Aye" did so only because they hadn’t had time to actually read the legislation. Buying into that lie, of course, allowed you to preserve your image of Congress as some sort of effective counterbalance to the gang in the White House. But four years, one would think, should have been adequate time for even the slowest readers among our elected representatives to catch up on what it was that they passed into law.

So I’m curious to know: what sort of mental gymnastics are required to still view this Congress as a body interested in, or capable of, reigning in this administration?

What actions by this Congress give you hope for the future? The regular allocation of tens of billions in additional dollars to fund an illegal war based on fully-exposed lies? The moves to retroactively legalize Bush’s illegal domestic surveillance programs? The Medicare ‘reform’ bill? The bankruptcy ‘reform’ bill? The sterling work done investigating the 9-11 attacks and the unnatural disaster in New Orleans? The routine rubber-stamping of reactionary political appointees? The fast-tracking of 'free trade' legislation, predictably coupled with the wholesale 'outsourcing' of jobs and widespread attacks on wages and benefits? The fact that, for five years, this Congress has marched in total lockstep with the Bush administration, sparing King George the trouble of having to veto a single piece of legislation?

<!--[if !vml]--><!--[endif]-->Trust me when I say that I too would like to hold onto a glimmer of hope that America's cancer can be excised through normal political channels, so please tell me what it is that I am missing? What is it that you so desperately cling to? Is it the occasional meaningless posturing by the likes of Russ Feingold, John McCain, Ron Paul, and Harry Reid? Is it because there are occasionally a few token dissenters in the crowd when Congress votes on a major piece of legislation? Or is it because you think that the midterm elections are going to magically usher in a new Congress with a new mindset? Are you one of those who hold out hope that elections are going to fix things? Have you convinced yourself that as long as you show up at your polling place every two years, you are doing your part to halt the headlong plunge into overt fascism?

Some of you think we can just ride out these bad times for a few more years, until the next presidential election rolls around, when some great and wise Democrat will take office and miraculously roll back the landscape to the way it was before the bad men came riding into town. Of course, you held out that same hope leading up to the 2004 elections, because you knew, with a certainty, that the American people were not going to confirm the appointment of this would-be president. And you were right. But guess what? It didn’t matter, because it had already been established that in the twenty-first century, election results need not correlate with actual votes cast.

And so you watched it happen once again – after patiently waiting for four years to deliver your message to Washington, you watched passively as another presidential election was stolen in broad daylight – and now you sit back and wait once again. You wait for Hillary Clinton to come and save the day, because you see a Hillary presidency as a backdoor way to get your hero, Bill Clinton, back in the White House. But as I noted just a few newsletters ago, it becomes more obvious with each passing week that Bill and Hillary are wearing Team Bush jerseys. Just weeks after posting that newsletter, it was revealed (albeit discretely) that your hero, Bill Clinton, was a key player working behind the scenes to facilitate his buddy George’s Dubai ports deal.

<!--[if !vml]--><!--[endif]-->And yet still you hold out hope, just as you held out hope that George’s Skull & Bones fraternity brother (seen here cozying up to another kindred spirit, the late Anton LaVey of the Church of Satan) would end the madness. You hold out hope even though all the Democratic Party's potential presidential contenders have demonstrated repeatedly that they will only attack Bush from the political right. They will not question the underlying legitimacy of the 'War on Terrorism,' they will only assert that that 'war' is not being waged aggressively enough. And they will not question the legality of the war in Iraq, they will only question how that war is being waged.

None of the outrages committed by this administration, either individually or collectively, have awakened you from your slumber, so I seriously doubt that there is anything that I could reveal here that would provide the necessary wake-up call. Nevertheless, I will give it my best shot.

What if I were to tell you, for starters, that our benevolent leaders have already got the ball rolling on an ambitious plan to build concentration camps? Right here on American soil! You would, of course, laugh heartily as you dismissed such sensational claims as the product of the overactive imagination of some Internet crackpots – which is exactly why I'm not going to tell you any such thing. Instead, I'm going to let Halliburton break the news to you, in the form of a press release issued on January 24, 2006. You can read it for yourself if you like; it's posted on the company's website. If you stop by for a visit, this is what you'll find:

ARLINGTON, Virginia – KBR announced today that its Government and Infrastructure division has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities in the event of an emergency. KBR is the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton (NYSE:HAL).

With a maximum total value of $385 million over a five-year term, consisting of a one-year based period and four one-year options, the competitively awarded contract will be executed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District ... The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs. The contingency support contract provides for planning and, if required, initiation of specific engineering, construction and logistics support tasks to establish, operate and maintain one or more expansion facilities.

The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster. http://www.davesweb.cnchost.com/anton&john.jpeg
(http://www.halliburton.com/default/main/halliburton/eng/news/source_files/news.jsp?newsurl=/default/main/halliburton/eng/news/source_files/press_release/2006/kbrnws_012406.html)

Since there is little indication that America is about to be bum-rushed by "an emergency influx of immigrants," it seems safe to say that the real purpose of these 'detention centers' is to "support the rapid development" of these mysterious, unspecified "new programs." It doesn't take much reading between the lines to recognize that the "new programs" will involve mass detentions following the next disaster to strike the country, whether it be real or imagined, and whether it be of natural or unnatural origins.

The good news here is that, should you find yourself suddenly occupying a room at Guantanamo on the Pacific, you won't have to worry about having a lot of idle time on your hands. That's because the U.S. Army has an ambitious Civilian Inmate Labor Program in effect that you can read all about right here: http://www.army.mil/usapa/epubs/pdf/r210_35.pdf. As you can see, this report, direct from the Headquarters of the Department of the Army, "provides guidance for establishing and managing civilian inmate labor programs on Army installations. It [also] provides guidance on establishing prison camps on Army installations."

As I'm sure you'll agree, this sounds like a really great program. First of all, it insures that all the shuttered military bases in the country will still provide a benefit to society. And it provides an answer to that vexing question: in this time of greatly increased militarism, why all the base closures in recent years? Turns out they make great forced-labor camps. And everyone wins: the Army is provided with "a source of labor at no direct cost to Army installations to accomplish tasks that would not be possible otherwise due to the manning and funding constraints under which the Army operates," and you, the inmate, are "provid[ed] meaningful work."

Think of the possibilities here, folks: one day you're out demonstrating against a clearly illegal and immoral war, and the next day you're doing the Army's shit work at a military base cum concentration camp!

Due to your new employer's "funding constraints," brought on by the difficulty of operating with a paltry annual budget of less than half a trillion dollars, "the Army is not interested in, nor can afford, any relationship with a corrections facility if that relationship stipulates payment for civilian inmate labor," so it's a pretty safe bet that you won't be getting paid. In fact, your new employer will pretend that you don't really work there at all: "Inmates are not Department of Army employees and are not regarded as such. Inmates must not be referred to as employees. They will not be paid from Department of the Army funds, nor receive any personal or private gratuity for work accomplished or services rendered. Interservice, interagency, or interdepartmental support agreements and/or memoranda of agreement with the corrections facility must not create any appearance of employment of inmates."

This DoD program ostensibly applies only to federal inmates, but there are numerous loopholes that allow for state and local inmates to be drafted into a little forced labor as well. In fact, the program appears to provide incentive for a massive expansion of the number of state and local inmates (already the highest in the world, both in absolute numbers and on a per capita basis). "Inmate labor programs using State and local civilian inmates," you see, is allowed if said inmates are drawn from "on-post prison camps." And "Section 2667, Title 10, United States code governing leases of DoD property allows acceptance of inmate labor as payment in kind for real property leased to correctional systems for use as prison camps."

In other words, any correctional entity can acquire facilities in which to incarcerate you at no cost. So, like I said, everyone wins with this arrangement: the Army gets a steady supply of free slave labor, the correctional system gets free space to house additional inmates, and you are given meaningful employment. Sounds like a sweet deal for everyone.

In addition to the Civilian Inmate Labor Program, the Department of Defense has also drafted an ambitious new Strategy for Homeland Defense and Civil Support. In the Foreword, we find that "Protecting the United States from direct attack is the highest priority of the Department of Defense." This is apparently a new policy, since the Defense Department obviously did nothing to protect the United States either before or during what were purportedly "direct attacks" on the United States on September 11, 2001. Reading on, we learn that "The military has traditionally secured the United States by projecting power overseas. While our current missions abroad continue to play a vital role for the security of our Nation, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 emphasized that we are confronting fundamentally different challenges from those faced during the Cold War."

Different challenges, of course, require different responses. The "terrorists," you see, seek to "exploit the openness of our society to their advantage." Even with all the changes we have seen in the last several years, our society is apparently still entirely too open. The solution to this problem, according to the Pentagon, is to take the military power that we have traditionally projected overseas, and project it right here in the Fatherland Homeland. What we need is an "active, layered defense" that is "global, seamlessly integrating US capabilities in the forward regions of the world, the global commons of space and cyberspace, in the geographic approaches to US territory, and within the United States. It is a defense in depth."

Ahh, yes, what we need is military control of everything – the nation, the world, the heavens, and the cyber world. What we need to do is create a world where 'terrorists,' as well as garden-variety dissidents and other persons-of-interest, will have no place to run and no place to hide. Because we are, you see, "a nation at war, a war whose length and scope may be unprecedented." To keep pace with this changing and dangerous world, the "DoD will continue to transform US military forces to execute homeland defense missions in the forward regions, approaches, US homeland, and global commons."

The DoD wants us to know that the "Department of Defense is responsible for homeland defense," and the "Department is prepared to conduct homeland defense missions whenever the President, exercising his constitutional authority as Commander in Chief, authorizes military action." The DoD also wants us to know that it "maintains land forces capable of responding rapidly, when so directed, to threats against DoD personnel, defense critical infrastructure, or other domestic targets." Among other duties, these land forces can be used "to support civilian law enforcement in responding to civil disturbances," or to provide "critical CBRNE [chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or high-yield explosive mass casualty attacks] consequence management capabilities in support of civil authorities ... DoD must therefore equip and train these war-fighting forces, as necessary, for domestic CBRNE consequence management."

So the plan, it would appear, is to call in combat troops to deal with a variety of domestic situations, including "civil disturbances" and "manag[ing] the consequences of an attack or a disaster." As we all remember from last summer, the DoD and the DHS have already run practice drills in the state of Louisiana, with rather predictable results.

In addition to the illegal domestic deployment of U.S. military forces, the Pentagon's plan for Total War also includes a massive amount of "information sharing across traditional military-civilian boundaries." Already in the works are the development of "automated tools to improve data fusion, analysis, and management, to track systematically large amounts of data, and to detect, fuse, and analyze aberrant patterns of activity," as well as the development of "capabilities to cue, surveil, identify, engage, and access potential threats in real time. Detection and tracking capabilities must be all-weather, around-the-clock, and effective against moving targets."

The grave threat we face today – as opposed to the rather quaint threat of global nuclear annihilation that we faced during the Cold War – “necessitates an unprecedented degree of shared situational awareness among Federal agencies, with state, local, tribal, and private entities, and between the United States and its key foreign partners.” Note that the inclusion of “private entities” on the information sharing list is undoubtedly a reference to quasi-governmental paramilitary groups like the infamous Blackwater, which has already been deployed domestically in New Orleans. Note also that, throughout Latin America and other parts of the world, “information sharing” with such mercenary groups has usually involved corrupt governments supplying hit lists and/or round-up lists.

What?! Death squads? People gone missing in the middle-of-the-night? Here?! In America?! Why, that's just absurd! Things like that can't happen here, in the land of the free and the home of the brave!

That is what you're thinking, isn't it? That is the thought that you have always used to comfort yourself. As long as you can remain firm in your commitment to the idea that nothing truly bad can happen in the greatest nation on earth, then you can continue to ignore all evidence to the contrary. It doesn't matter that Halliburton has announced that it has a contract to build detention centers, because you know that the notion of concentration camps in America is absurd. It doesn't matter that the Army is operating a Civilian Inmate Labor Program, because you know that the very idea of forced-labor camps in America is ridiculous. It doesn't matter that the Department of Defense has drafted an ambitious plan to deploy military forces domestically, because you know that the Posse Comitatus Act forbids any such thing.

Not too many years ago, your list of things that "can't happen here" probably included indefinite 'detentions' in horrendous conditions without access to legal counsel. It probably also included the official endorsement of torture and assassination as 'war' fighting tools. It undoubtedly included the domestic deployment of military forces and mercenaries to deal with the aftermath of a hurricane. And it surely included the installation of an illegitimate president through massive voter fraud and Supreme Court intervention. It probably even included open pronouncements that America is now in a state of endless war.

None of that could happen here – you said so yourself, if I recall correctly – but all of it and more already has. Concentration camps and forced labor camps can't happen here, but the plans have already been drawn up and the contracts have already been awarded. How many more things that "can't happen here" have to happen before you come to terms with the fact that America does not have some sort of invisible shield around it that protects you from the evils that befall other nations? Before you answer, let's take a look at some of the other ways that the Pentagon is keeping America safe from the ever-present threat of 'terrorism.'

According to the Strategy for Homeland Defense report, the DoD will "ensure persistent wide-area surveillance and reconnaissance of the US maritime approaches," which will, of course, "require that Navy forces be placed under periodic command and control of US Northern Command as appropriate." That seems fair. After all, if we’ve already signed up the Army, the Air Force, the Department of Homeland Security, Blackwater, and federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement entities, it wouldn’t be right to deny the Navy the opportunity to do some domestic policing.

Reading on through the DoD report, we learn that “Implementation of the Strategy for Homeland Defense and Civil Support may require several new technological investments. Three areas of particular interest for further exploration are advanced information and communications technology, new generations of sensors, and non-lethal capabilities.”

“The placement of sensors on high altitude platforms,” we are told, “including new generations of unmanned aerial vehicles, satellites, and aerostats, could allow sustained surveillance of wide areas of the earth’s surface.” The Pentagon is also working feverishly to develop “an urban surveillance system that would use computers and thousands of cameras to track, record and analyze the movement of every vehicle in a city. Named 'Combat Zones That See,' the project is designed to help the U.S. military protect its troops abroad and fight in cities overseas. Police, scientists and privacy experts say the unclassified technology could be adapted easily to spy on Americans. The CTS' centerpiece is groundbreaking computer software that is capable of automatically identifying vehicles by size, color, shape and license tag, or drivers and passengers by face … The project is being overseen by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is helping the Pentagon develop technologies for combating terrorism and fighting wars in the 21st century. Its other projects include developing software that scans databases of everyday transactions and personal records worldwide to predict terrorist attacks and creating a computerized diary that would record and analyze everything a person says, sees, hears, reads or touches.”
(http://washingtontimes.com/business/20030701-092343-5953r.htm)

As for so-called non-lethal weapons, “potential application to homeland defense missions include: counter-personnel technology, used to deny entry into a particular area, temporarily incapacitate individuals or groups, and clear facilities, structures, and areas,” and “counter-material technology, to disable, neutralize, or deny an area to vehicles, vessels, and aircraft, or disable particular items of equipment.” In other words, what is referred to as ‘non-lethal technology’ is actually crowd-control technology. And ‘terrorists’ don’t, as far as I know, tend to gather in crowds. Angry Americans tend to gather in crowds, for the purpose of exercising their alleged constitutional right to assemble. Or at least they should.

Over the last several years, New Scientist magazine has taken a look at some of this emerging crowd-control technology. In June 2004, the publication revealed that “Weapons that can incapacitate crowds of people by sweeping a lightning-like beam of electricity across them are being readied for sale to military and police forces in the US and Europe. At present, commercial stun guns target one person at a time, and work only at close quarters. The new breed of non-lethal weapons can be used on many people at once and operate over far greater distances.” As the manufacturer of one of these weapons systems gushed, "We will be able to fire a stream of electricity like water out of a hose at one or many targets in a single sweep.” (http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn6014)

In March 2005, we learned that the “US military is funding development of a weapon that delivers a bout of excruciating pain from up to 2 kilometres away. Intended for use against rioters, it is meant to leave victims unharmed. But pain researchers are furious that work aimed at controlling pain has been used to develop a weapon. And they fear that the technology will be used for torture.” The explicit goal of the research is to create a weapon capable of causing “the maximum pain possible.” (http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7077)

Returning once again to the Pentagon strategy paper, we find that the Department of Defense will “identify opportunities to share appropriate non-lethal capabilities with domestic law enforcement agencies.” The Pentagon, it seems, is all about sharing. And that's a good thing, since these weapons systems will certainly come in handy at those times when batons, pepper spray, tear gas, rubber bullets, bean bags and tasers just aren’t enough to break up a legally assembled crowd of pissed-off American citizens.

Elsewhere on the technology front, “A scientist funded by the US government has deliberately created an extremely deadly form of mousepox, a relative of the smallpox virus, through genetic engineering. The new virus kills all mice even if they have been given antiviral drugs as well as a vaccine that would normally protect them. The work has not stopped there. The cowpox virus, which infects a range of animals including humans, has been genetically altered in a similar way … the research brings closer the prospect of pox viruses that cause only mild infections in humans being turned into diseases lethal even to people who have been vaccinated.” (http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn4318) (For much more on ‘emerging technologies,’ see http://www.sunshine-project.org/publications/bk/bk12.html. I would provide some excerpts here, but the report really should be read in its entirety to fully grasp all the disturbing avenues of research currently being conducted in US labs, including the development of ethnic-specific biological weapons, weapons aimed at wiping out food supplies, reproductive control weapons, and the resurrection of the Spanish Flu, last seen wiping out some 20-40 million people.)

So there you have it, folks: concentration camps, forced labor, martial law, global surveillance, sadistic forms of crowd control, genocidal biological weapons – all this and more is looming in the not-too-distant future. And our trusty servants in Washington will have no trouble finding some handy justification for fully activating and expanding these programs. A seemingly natural disaster, such as an earthquake or hurricane, could serve as the trigger. So too could another ‘terrorist’ attack, and the Homeland Defense report promises us that more are coming: “Terrorists will seek and potentially gain surreptitious entry into the United States to conduct mass casualty attacks against Americans on US soil … Terrorists and/or rogue states will attempt multiple, simultaneous mass casualty attacks against the US homeland.”

These triggering events could themselves be triggered by any sudden increase in the anger level of average Americans. Because the truth is, you see, that beneath all the bluster and arrogance, the Washington gang is terrified of you. It’s hard to believe, I know, but it is true nonetheless. Even though you have sit idly by while your beloved Constitution and Bill of Rights have been thoroughly trampled over, the powers-that-be view you as a sleeping giant that, if fully awakened, is capable of laying waste to their cherished plans.

Although they have convinced you that you are utterly powerless, they know that that is not the case. They know that they would not be able to contain the seething anger of the masses should it ever fully surface. They know the fury that will be unleashed should the dormant beast awaken to the fact it has been deliberately and systematically lied to. And they fear that some day soon one of their provocations will awaken you.

They will never let you see that fear, of course, for to do so would shatter the illusion that they are omnipotent and you are powerless to resist. But the fear is there, lurking just beneath the arrogant fa├žade. In Washington, in the halls of academia, and in the newsrooms of Fox and CNN and ABC and NBC and CBS, the fear is palpable. It can be found in all the institutions of society that are complicit in serving you up your daily portion of lies.

Their greatest fear is facing the beast at full strength, for they know that if that day of reckoning ever comes, there will be hell to pay for their transgressions against the American people. And so they try to weaken the beast while it lies dormant – by demoralizing it, and by breaking it up into smaller, more manageable pieces, preferably pieces that can be played against each other. And as long as the American people continue to play along, by allowing Washington to dictate the rules of this game, the beast will remain too weak to fight back against the considerable oppressive powers of the state.

The rest of the world has a better understanding of how this game must be played. Turn on your television set and you might catch a glimpse of a few million French citizens taking to the streets to express their anger at their government’s labor policies. Turn to another channel and you might see half-a-million Latino immigrants marching through the streets of Los Angeles to protest proposed immigration reforms. And yet the American people, as a whole, cannot summon the energy to take to the streets even as your sons and daughters are being fed into the meat grinder in Iraq.

Make no mistake about it: those images from Paris and Los Angeles scare the shit out of the criminals in Washington, as can be discerned from the tone of the news coverage provided by the Western media. They look at those masses of humanity and begin picturing such scenes in every big city across this nation. And then they imagine public anger becoming so widespread that they begin to lose control of the militarized law enforcement agencies all across the country that they rely upon to keep the masses at bay.

So what's it going to be, people? Are you going to continue to sit passively in the bleachers, or are you going to take to the streets in numbers previously unseen on these shores? Are you going to initiate a general strike and shut corporate America down? Are you going to storm the offices of all the major media outlets and let the opinion-shapers know that aiding and abetting the criminals in Washington is itself a crime, and one that has severe consequences?

Is it not your responsibility to act to protect your children if they are in danger? And can we not agree that virtually all of the key figures in the media are not merely messengers, as we are to believe, but rather highly-paid propagandists for the State? And can we not also agree that the propaganda being sold poses a direct threat to our children's futures? If a 'common criminal,' so to speak, were posing a direct and very serious threat to your children's safety, would you sit idly by doing nothing?

Is it not perfectly obvious that we would not be in our current predicament if we had anything resembling a free and independent press? Washington would still harbor a desire to implement an overtly fascist agenda, to be sure, but without a compliant media machine to obscure the truth and shape public opinion, those plans would remain but a dream. Without a compliant media, we would not be living in a post-911 world, because no 'terrorist' attacks would have occurred on September 11, 2001. Why? Because without a propaganda machine masquerading as a free press, such an audacious and patently fraudulent story could have never been sold to the American people, just as the lie-based wars in Central Asia and the Middle East could have never been marketed.

When your children come to you ten or twenty years in the future (and they will – assuming, of course, that they survive that long, given the unfolding plans to wipe out 90% of humanity, likely justified on the basis of the junk science known as 'Peak Oil' theory: http://www.sas.org/tcs/weeklyIssues_2006/2006-04-07/feature1p/index.html) to ask why you were asleep at the wheel while the country was evolving into an overtly fascist police state, what will you tell them? That there was nothing you could do? And when they then ask if you were truly powerless or if you just allowed yourself to be convinced that you were, what will you tell them then?

The Pentagon's Homeland Defense report concludes as follows: “The Department of Defense must change its conceptual approach to homeland defense. The Department can no longer think in terms of the ‘home’ game and the ‘away’ game. There is only one game. The Strategy for Homeland Defense and Civil Support is a significant step toward this strategic transformation. Defending the US homeland – our people, property, and freedom – is our most fundamental duty. Failure is not an option.”

As has been demonstrated repeatedly in various foreign adventures, the US Department of Defense has little interest in defending freedom or people. Its primary function is the acquisition and defense of property – property ‘owned’ by US and multinational corporations. In the ‘Homeland’ as elsewhere, the role of the military will be to protect corporate property and corporate profits, at the expense of the rights and the freedoms of the people – and quite likely at the expense of the very lives of the people.

The responsibility of defending the rights and freedoms of the American people falls squarely on your shoulders. Nobody else is going to do it for you. It is your most fundamental duty. And failure is definitely not an option.

LATINOS DECLARE GENERAL STRIKE FOR MAY 1; dubbed a "day without Latinos"
As protests against a proposed immigration crackdown

May 1st is an international communist holiday
(notes on this are at the end of this article).

Perhaps, beginning on May 2nd,
Americans will give illegal aliens a century without Americans.

NewsWithViews.com Dear President Bush: I'm planning a little trip with my family and extended family, and I would like to ask you to assist me. I'm going to walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and I need to make a few arrangements. I know you can help with this. I plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Vicente Fox, that I'm on my way over? Please let him know that I will be expecting the following: 1. Free medical care for my entire family. 2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not. 3. All government forms need to be printed in English. 4. I want my kids to be taught by English-speaking teachers. 5. Schools need to include classes on American culture and history. 6. I want my kids to see the American flag flying on
the top of the flag pole at their school with the Mexican flag flying lower down. 7. Please plan to feed my kids at school for both breakfast and lunch. 8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services. 9. I do not plan to have any car insurance, and I won't make any effort to learn local traffic laws. 10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from Pres. Fox to leave me alone, please be sure that all police officers speak English. 11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals. 12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, and do not enforce any labor laws or tax laws. 13. Please tell all the people in the country to be extremely nice and never say a critical word about me, or about the strain I might place on
the economy. I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all the people who come to the U.S. from Mexico. I am sure that Pres. Fox won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely. However, if he gives you any trouble, just invite him to go quail hunting with your V.P. Thank you so much for your help. Sincerely,

LATINOS DECLARE GENERAL STRIKE FOR MAY 1

AGENCE FRANCE PRESSE - US Hispanic groups, buoyed by massive weekend
protests against a proposed immigration crackdown, are planning a major
boycott of American life dubbed a "day without Latinos," leaders said on
Tuesday. Organizers of the planned May 1 "A day without Latinos or a day
without immigrants" boycott will ask immigrants to put down tools, leave
their places of work and classrooms, shut their business and take to the
streets en masse to protest a bill that would criminalize illegal
immigration.

Nativo Lopez, president of the Mexican American Political Association, one
of the organizers of a massive protest in Los Angeles that saw at least
500,000 protest on Saturday, said the protest would send a stern message to
Washington.

"We are looking forward to a major action in all large US cities where
immigrants make up a significant proportion of the workforce," he told AFP.

"We are asking people not to go to school, or work, or shopping and instead
to go out and protest against the racist and inhumane measures in this bill.

In addition to the "day without immigrants," MAPA and other grass roots
Latino groups are also organizing a massive protest in 20 major US cities on
April 10 in a bid to defeat the legislative reform proposal, Lopez said. The
cities targeted include Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, Atlanta,
San Francisco and Dallas, Lopez said.

Notes on May 1st as the international communist holiday
The history of May 1st goes way further back than communism and socialism-

The original founding of the Illuminati was on May 1 of 1776
Other communist actions have traditionally occurred on May 1 ,
in commemoration of the original founding of the Illuminati.
BECAUSE:
Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto as an employee of the misnamed "League of Just Men". "League of Just Men" was an Illuminati front.
The "League of Just Men" changed their name to the "League of Communists" after the manifesto was in print.

The Illuminati was not made up of working class people.
These people were wealthy industrialists intent on deceiving the working class into helping them create a government controlled monopoly.
Other communist actions have traditionally occurred on May 1 ,
in commemoration of the original founding of the Illuminati.

The original assertion of the Communist Manifesto was that the state would "wither away" after the adoption of communism.

The anarchists, of the time of the Haymarket riot, were communists who believed in the "withering away" of the state after the adoption of communism.

Communism has always presented itself as a movement for the liberation of the working class. Remember who it was that said "Workers of the world revolt. You have nothing to lose but your chains."

  THE SECRET COVENANT. Full version, rated R !

( Sounds like the reason for Chemtrails ?)
  An illusion it will be, so large, so vast it will escape their
perception.
    Those who will see it will be thought of as insane.     We
will create separate fronts to prevent them from seeing the connection
between us.
  We will behave as if we are not connected to keep the illusion
alive. Our
goal will be
  accomplished one drop at a time so as to never bring suspicion upon
ourselves. This will
  also prevent them from seeing the changes as they occur.   We will
always stand above the relative field of their experience for we know
the secrets of the absolute.
  We will work together always and will remain bound by blood and
secrecy.
Death will come to he who speaks.
  We will keep their lifespan short and their minds weak while
pretending to do
the opposite.
  We will use our knowledge of science and technology in subtle ways
so they
will never see what is happening.
  We will use soft metals, aging accelerators and sedatives in food
and water,
also in the air.
  They will be blanketed by poisons everywhere they turn.   The soft
metals will cause them to lose their minds. We will promise to find
a cure from our many fronts, yet we will   feed them more poison.
  The poisons will be absorbed trough their skin and mouths, they will
destroy
their minds and reproductive systems.
  From all this, their children will be born dead, and we will conceal
this
information.
  The poisons will be hidden in everything that surrounds them, in
what they
drink, eat, breathe and wear.
  We must be ingenious in dispensing the poisons for they can see far.
  We will teach them that the poisons are good, with fun images and
musical
tones.
  Those they look up to will help. We will enlist them to push our
poisons.
  They will see our products being used in film and will grow
accustomed to
them and will never know their true effect.   When they give birth we
will inject poisons into the blood of their children
and convince them its for their help.
  We will start early on, when their minds are young, we will target
their
children with what children love most, sweet things.   When their
teeth decay we will fill them with metals that will kill their
mind and steal their future.
  When their ability to learn has been affected, we will create
medicine that
will make them sicker and cause other diseases   for which we will
create yet more medicine.   We will render them docile and weak before
us by our power.   They will grow depressed, slow and obese, and when
they come to us for help,
we will give them more poison.
  We will focus their attention toward money and material goods so
they many
never connect with their inner self. We will   distract them with
fornication, external pleasures and games so they may
never be one with the oneness of it all.   Their minds will belong to
us and they will do as we say. If they refuse we
shall find ways to implement mind-altering technology   into their
lives. We will use fear as our weapon.   We will establish their
governments and establish opposites within. We will
own both sides.
  We will always hide our objective but carry out our plan.   They
will perform the labor for us and we shall prosper from their toil.
  Our families will never mix with theirs. Our blood must be pure
always, for
it is the way.
  We will make them kill each other when it suits us.   We will keep
them separated from the oneness by dogma and religion.   We will
control all aspects of their lives and tell them what to think and
how.
  We will guide them kindly and gently letting them think they are
guiding
themselves.
  We will foment animosity between them through our factions.   When
a light shall shine among them, we shall extinguish it by ridicule, or
death, whichever suits us best.
  We will make them rip each other's hearts apart and kill their own
children.
  We will accomplish this by using hate as our ally, anger as our
friend.
  The hate will blind them totally, and never shall they see that from
their
conflicts we emerge as their rulers. They will be busy   killing each
other.
  They will bathe in their own blood and kill their neighbors for as
long as we
see fit.
  We will benefit greatly from this, for they will not see us, for
they cannot
see us.
  We will continue to prosper from their wars and their deaths.   We
shall repeat this over and over until our ultimate goal is accomplished.
  We will continue to make them live in fear and anger though images
and
sounds.
  We will use all the tools we have to accomplish this.   The tools
will be provided by their labor.   We will make them hate themselves
and their neighbors.   We will always hide the divine truth from them,
that we are all  one. This
they must never know!
  They must never know that color is an illusion, they must always
think they
are not equal.
  Drop by drop, drop by drop we will advance our goal.   We will
take over their land, resources and wealth to exercise total control
over them.
  We will deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little
freedom
they will have.
  We will establish a money system that will imprison them forever,
keeping
them and their children in debt.
  When they shall ban together, we shall accuse them of crimes and
present a
different story to the world for we shall own all the media.   We will
use our media to control the flow of information and their sentiment
in our favor.
  When they shall rise up against us we will crush them like insects,
for they
are less than that.
  They will be helpless to do anything for they will have no weapons.
  We will recruit some of their own to carry out our plans, we will
promise
them eternal life, but eternal life they will never have for   they
are not of us.
  The recruits will be called "initiates" and will be indoctrinated to
believe
false rites of passage to higher realms. Members of these   groups
will think they are one with us never knowing the truth. They must
never learn this truth for they will turn against us.   For their work
they will be rewarded with earthly things and great titles,
but never will they become immortal and join us, never    will they
receive the light and travel the stars.   They will never reach the
higher realms, for the killing of their own kind
will prevent passage to the realm of enlightenment. This they   
will never know.
  The truth will be hidden in their face, so close they will not be
able to
focus on it until its too late.
  Oh yes, so grand the illusion of freedom will be, that they will
never know
they are our slaves.
  When all is in place, the reality we will have created for them will
own
them. This reality will be their prison. They will live in
self-delusion.
  When our goal is accomplished a new era of domination will begin.
  Their minds will be bound by their beliefs, the beliefs we have
established
from time immemorial.
  But if they ever find out they are our equal, we shall perish then.
THIS THEY
MUST NEVER KNOW.
  If they ever find out that together they can vanquish us, they will
take
action.
  They must never, ever find out what we have done, for if they do, we
shall
have no place to run, for it will be easy to see who we are    once
the veil has fallen. Our actions will have revealed who we are and they
will hunt us down and no person shall give us shelter.   This is the
secret covenant by which we shall live the rest of our present
and future lives, for this reality will transcend many   generations
and life spans.
  This covenant is sealed by blood, our blood. We, the ones who from
heaven to
earth came.
  This covenant must NEVER, EVER be known to exist. It must NEVER,
EVER be
written or spoken of for if it is, the consciousness it will   
spawn will release the fury of the PRIME CREATOR upon us and we shall be
cast to the depths from whence we came and remain there until   the
end time of infinity itself.

Holocaust in Plain Sight

On April 30 in Washington, a 'Rally to End Genocide' confronts the shame of indifference

by Nat Hentoff
April 3rd, 2006 4:23 PM


[U.N.] official Jan Pronk told the Security Council that killings, rapes and armed attacks on Darfur villagers [are being] committed by armed gangs secure in the knowledge that no one would stop or punish them.
New York Times, March 22

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Africa's largest country [Sudan] has the opportunity to reach for a peaceful, prosperous and democratic future.

From an eight-page special advertising supplement by the self-congratulatory government of Sudan on March 20—that enriched the Times by over $900,000— urging further investment in that splendid country

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Long before the genocide in Sudan, I had been reporting for years in the Voice on the Sudan government's murders, gang rapes, and enslavement of black Christians and animists in the south of Sudan—and the attempts of the Boston-based American Anti-Slavery Group, black American pastors, Christian Solidarity International, and a few members of Congress to awaken this country to the horrors in Sudan.

The then secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, said to a protester that the atrocities there were not "marketable" to the American public. But eventually a critical mass of Americans— including schoolchildren around the country sending money so that Christian Solidarity International could redeem black slaves—helped create enough international pressure to lead to a still unstable January 2005 peace agreement between the National Islamic Front government in Khartoum and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement in the South. But at least 40,000 black southern Sudanese slaves remain in northern Sudan.

After three years of the atrocities in Darfur, which have now spread to refugee camps in Chad, Hans Wuerth, part of a persistent interfaith coalition in Pennsylvania acting to stop the genocide, received a letter this past February 28 from Heather Flynn, a staff member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in support of their "grassworks action" because, she said:

"The people of Darfur do not have a constituency here in the United States, and there is no one to lobby for them in Washington."

That is no longer true. On April 30, the Save Darfur Coalition—an alliance of more than 155 faith-based, humanitarian, and human rights organizations— will hold a rally at the National Mall in Washington: the "Rally to Stop Genocide."

I don't have the space to list all the members of the coalition, but they include as co-sponsor the American Jewish World Service (which has been instrumental in organizing the Jewish community and has already raised more than $2 million to provide emergency relief and support for the Darfur survivors).

Among the other coalition organizers for the April 30 rally are: the American Society for Muslim Advancement, the National Association of Evangelicals, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the American Anti-Slavery Group, Amnesty International, Christian Solidarity International, Physicians for Human Rights, National Black Church Initiative, and various regional and local organizations.

For information on the rally and how to be a part of it, the website is: savedarfur.org/rally. Chuck Thies, the rally director is at 202-478-6302. To sign up for the rally, you can also click on ajws.org.

The April 30 rally will take place between 2 and 4 p.m. on the National Mall, between Third and Fourth streets in front of the U.S. Capitol Metro station Federal Center SW (orange and blue lines). Crowd assembly: 1:30 to 2:00 p.m.

On the same day The New York Times took nearly a million dollars from the mass-murdering government of Sudan for eight pages of glowingly illustrated "bright prospects" for investors, a template of utterly false advertising to gull Times readers. There was this Times editorial:

"After the Holocaust, the world vowed it wouldn't stand back and allow genocide to happen again. Bosnia, Cambodia and Rwanda showed how empty that promise was. . . . Is this really what we have come to? The United Nations has described the carnage as the world's biggest humanitarian crisis but continues to prove itself completely useless at doing anything to stop it.

"In the Security Council, China protects Sudan. Europe, for its part, has been inert." Does this editorial atone for the advertising supplement?

And no journalist, anywhere in the world, has done more, in his repeated trips to Darfur, to show the monstrous, insatiable face of this genocide than Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times as in this March 14 column:

"It is brutally demoralizing for people in these villages to be hunted down as if they were wild beasts, to have their children pulled from their arms and thrown into burning huts. But we should be just as demoralized by our own indifference. The shame belongs not to the good people of Darfur and Chad, but to ourselves."

The organizers and participants in the April 30 Washington "Rally to Stop Genocide" are, to say the least, not indifferent. And by April 30, the Save Darfur Coalition expects to have at least a million postcards to send to George W. Bush from its Million Voices postcards campaign (you can sign an electronic Million Voices card at savedarfur.org: click on "Million Voices for Darfur"). This is the postcard:

"Dear President Bush: During your first year in the White House, you wrote in the margins of a report on the Rwandan genocide, ' Not on my watch.' I urge you to live up to those words by using the power of your office to support a stronger multinational force to protect the civilians of Darfur."

The president is making a lot of speeches to lift his poll ratings. Can't he find time for one to save the survivors in Darfur?

The New York Times says it took nearly a million dollars from bloody Khartoum in its "strong belief" that "all pages of the paper . . . must remain open to the free flow of ideas . . . [but] we do not endorse the politics . . . or actions . . . or the character of [the country's] leaders."

I won't be surprised— although no less disgusted— to see a bountiful special advertising Times supplement paid for by Robert Mugabe on how the people of Zimbabwe enjoy unprecedented prosperity and a free press under his deeply compassionate reign. That should cost $2 million.
