Excerpts: "Our six-year-old daughter was so excited to start school. At our first parent-teacher conference, Barb and I expected to hear the usual compliments and heartwarming anecdotes about our bright little angel. From our experiences with activities like T-ball and soccer, or dance and music recitals, we had learned that parents always say nice things about the children of others. If the compliments are sometimes unrealistic or excessive, well, parenting is tough work. We can all use the encouragement...
... I guess we had been spoiled. Jenny's teacher got right to the point. She had some negatives to address. For one thing, Jenny was struggling with her reading... I was confused by this assessment of Jenny's reading abilities because it simply didn't fit in with her prior history. She had a love affair with books for her entire childhood. We have a photograph of her at 11 months of age staring earnestly at the contents of an open book... The teacher went on to explain that Jenny cried too much at school and that we needed to correct this problem with the appropriate discipline. Barb and I exchanged glances but didn't argue. We were in shock...
... I was curious about the crying. Jenny was such a happy child. I asked her that night what made her sad at school. Expecting to hear about something on the playground, I was surprised by her answer. The listening-hour stories made her sad.
... The stories in the readers consistently associated individual initiative with emotional or physical pain. Consider the example of the little squirrel whose wheel falls off his wagon. When he tries to replace it, the wagon rides with an awkward and embarrassing bump, noticeable to his friends, who then tease him about it. Another attempt to repair the wheel results in an accident, with bruising and bleeding and more humiliation. The cumulative effect of this and similar story lines, given the vicarious nature of the reading experience, would be to discourage initiative and reduce self-confidence in the first grader...
... Animal dads, moms, and grandparents were portrayed over and over in various combinations as mean, stupid, unreliable, bungling, impotent or incompetent. Relationships with their children were almost always dysfunctional; communication and reciprocal trust were non-existent. A toxic mom or dad, for instance, might have stepped in to help our youthful squirrel repair his wagon, only to make matters worse and wreak emotional havoc in the process. Jenny's heart would be lacerated by stories which constantly portrayed parent/child relationships as strained, cruel, or distant. I could see her crying with hurt or frustration...
... I borrow the term "anti-intellectualism" to describe another dominant theme in the readers. Many of the compositions were, essentially, word salad. They lacked intrinsic interest, coherence, or continuity, and they often demonstrated a sort of anti-rationality. The stories and the corresponding questions seemed to require the student to suspend the natural operations of his intellect, such as the desire to make sense out of things or the impulse to be curious. Under this yoke, a student could learn to hate reading or even thought itself.
... It has occurred to me that the cause of America's illiteracy crisis has been discovered. It is the reading curriculum in our schools. Unfortunately, the damage to children appears to extend way beyond reading failure. One wonders if the hidden agenda in the readers has created our victim culture, a generation of withdrawn and resentful children, alienated from themselves, their parents, society, books and ideas.
... Judging by her crying in the classroom, she was part of a captive audience being repeatedly exposed to painful stimuli. To put it plainly, she was the victim of ongoing torture and cruelty. Along with her classmates, she was becoming, as one of her school poems pointed out, "Small, small, small, just a tiny, tiny, tiny piece of it all."..." - InformationLiberation.com / Rense

VIDEO Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Dentention/Concentration Camps? STAY TUNED IN... More important info to come. Watch. Share. Be Aware.
This compilation video, just posted on Disclose TV, contains just about all the footage I've seen online labeled as "FEMA camps," and contains what I see as a pretty level-headed analysis. I can't speak to exactly what each of these videos means, or what exactly the pictures are of, but generally speaking, the pictures seem to speak for themselves. Furthermore (let us not live in a state of denial), it is totally plausible that such detention centers, concentrations camps, are already built and perhaps running in the United States. We know about the international jails and torture rings, Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, and so forth..., and we know about our exponentially increasing prison population in the USA (as is covered in this video also). Plus, it isn't as if they haven't told us their basic agenda, even if they haven't shared some of the details... Watch. Share. Be Aware.
More important information about the FEMA Camps! (~11 min.):
Thanks Disclose TV!

Headlines, and clips from news stories:
Pentagon denies high civilian death toll in Afghanistan (RussiaToday.com - Moscow, Russia)
... The Pentagon is denying claims that its policy in Afghanistan is causing a high death toll among civilians. Hundreds of Afghan citizens have died - a number that the American media refers to as ‘a spate of civilian deaths’. Only last week up to 90 people were killed by NATO air raids on Herat province, according to UN and Afghan officials. - RussiaToday.com
Anti-Kremlin website founder dies in police custody: report (France24.com - Paris, France at 5, rue des Nations Unies)
... The founder of a website and vocal critic of the Kremlin's policies in the Caucasus died Sunday from a bullet wound to the head while in police custody, Interfax reported, quoting prosecutors. Magomed Yevloyev ran the website ingushetiya.ru, a major source of information in the region, and was a prominent opponent of the pro-Kremlin president of Ingushetia, Murat Zyazikov. - France24.com
'Israel, terrorism two sides of the same coin' (PressTV.ir - Tehran, Iran)
... Lebanon's Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri says the Lebanese army and the Resistance are strongly united in confronting any Israeli aggression. Speaking in the 30th anniversary of Imam Mousa Sadr's disappearance in Libya, Berri said the efforts to separate the Resistance and the government was an Israeli plot. He said when Israel failed to destroy Hezbollah in its July 2006 war against Lebanon it began hatching plots to separate them. "Israel and terrorism are the two sides of the same coin" Berri said, calling on the Lebanese people to take Israel's threats very seriously. - PressTV.ir
OSC: Russia- Iran Alliance? (InformationClearinghouse.info - Southern California, USA)
... The USG Open Source Center translates an article from the Russian press proposing a strategic alliance between Russia and Iran... Pundit on Possible Russia-Iran Alliance To Counter 'Unfriendly' US Moves... The recognition of South Ossetia's and Abkhazia's independence by Russia is a timely step to protect these republics from new Georgian aggression. However, taking into account the United States' plans to expedite Georgia's and Ukraine's accession to the NATO military-political bloc, the situation near the Russian border remains alarming. At the same time Moscow has a lot of possibilities to take balanced counter measures to the United States' and entire NATO's unfriendly plans. In particular, Russia can rely on those countries that effectively oppose the United States' and their satellites' expansion. Only collective efforts can help to create a situation which would, if not eliminate then at least reduce the risk of the Cold War's transformation into local and global conflicts. - InformationClearinghouse.info
Fading superpower, rising rivals (Kuwaittimes.net - Safat, Kuwait)
... At the Beijing Olympics, China trounced the United States in the contest for gold medals. In the Caucasus, Russia inflicted a humiliating military defeat on Georgia, America's closest ally in the region. At home, the US economy is in deep trouble. The misery index, a combination of the rates of inflation and unemployment, stands at its highest in 16 years (11.3 percent in July) and there are forecasts of worse to come. - Kuwaittimes.net

I shan't even quote the story... WHAT A ROUSE! MERE DISTRACTION! There's absolutely no reason for those who see the impending doom of this country to drop everything they're doing and run after rain. They're just trying to "make up for Katrnia" (i.e. get marshal law right this time)... Let's just see one more time what Ron Paul has to say about it (SO sensible!)...
Ron Paul on Fox News 8/31/08 (~2.5 min.) about the RNC convention, hurricanes, personal responsibility, and Revolution!:
No matter how inane the reporter's questions or how short the interview, Ron Paul always seems to find a way to manage to slice through to important matters--an especially valuable skill when being interviewed for Fox News.
1984 VIDEO INTERVIEW "Soviet Subversion of the Free World Press" with former KGB agent - Incredibly relevant to our times! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The "research team" over here brought this interview to my attention several months ago, and we were astounded by its uncanny description of what is happening in the United States right now--this despite the fact that the interview took place in 1984, and that the interviewee's primary historical point of reference for his predictions and theories is the USSR. It's such a compelling and clear piece that we found ourselves referring to it again and again in conversation, and I imagine you will too... it is wealth worth watching the entire piece if you can take the time. In the mean time we lost the interview to depths of the internet, but it was dug out once again for our own, and we hope your, reference.
In addition to providing a fascinating and personal witness to Soviet espionage in Cold War years, in this interview the now-defected former KBG agent Yuri Bezmenov provides us with his understanding of the Soviet (and Corporate / Fascist, as it applies to our nation) tactic of "Ideological Subversion."
He breaks down the process of "Ideological Subversion" down in four stages, which may be summarized and contextualized with current day events as follows (but please DO watch him, he's ON, and I can certainly say it no better) :
1) Demoralization - According to Bezmenov, this stage requires at least 15-20 years, the time it takes to educate a generation into ignorance and passivity. The result is most simply put as a fat, lazy citizenry.
2) Destabilization - According to Bezmenov, this stage requires 2-5 years. It follows the successful demoralization of the majority of the populace, and is characterized by a focus on the creation of imminent crises in the most critical realms such Economy, Foreign Relations, and Defense Systems. I think, according to Bezmenov's stages, that the USA is nearing the end of this stage now. Furthermore, it appears this period began on 11 September 2001 when, what we will soon see as a "minor 'Crisis'" took place, launching the final collapse of the already-corrupt Republic.
3) Crisis - According to Bezmenov, this stage/event(s) requires a very brief period, just a few weeks. He says this stage happens very fast, and is characterized by cataclysmic event(s), which enable and spur the government on to institute total tyranny, including martial law, and which causes much of the population to decide to accept that tyranny because of their fear. As the news stories reported here and on many other sites have recently focused on, I see numerous possibilities for this in the USA today: Total "hot" war, b.k.a. World War III (WW III); War with Russia; War with Iran; Nuclear obliteration of large portions of the human population; Total collapse of currency systems including the dollar; Extreme revocation of citizen property ownership through foreclosure and severe property devaluation; and, lastly but not finally, a Slower but just as Significant strangulation of large portions of the human population through regulation of food and water intake, and property rights. All of these possibilities are coming to fruition everyday, and that is why I said above that I believe we are coming to the end of a "Destabilization" period and heading for more "Crisis" and ultimately, tyranny... if we don't stop it!
4) Normalization - According to Bezmenov, this is a period of indefinite length. It is the period of tyrannical reign and slavery that we can all expect if we do not act now (and get some help from the rest of the world).

The verdict was issued in absentia as Khaddam currently resides in France in self-imposed exile, having fled Syria in 2005... The full charges brought against the former vice president include false testimony against the Syrian government regarding the assassination of Hariri, plotting to overthrow Syria's government, contacting the Israeli regime and encouraging foreign countries to invade Syria. - PressTV.ir

'Purchase of S-300 missiles would 'change the game', significantly improve Iranian defenses against any air strike on its nuclear sites, Pentagon official quoted as saying... According to the report, the proposed deal is causing huge alarm in the US and Israel as the S-300 "can track 100 targets at once and fire on planes up to 75 miles away"... Russia has denied previous assertions by senior Iranians that a deal has already been finalized on the S-300. - YnetNews.com
Ads pushing Iran strike show Denver under missile attack from Boulder (RawStory.com - Washington, DC, USA)
... A nonprofit lobbying organization aimed at strengthening Israel's image in the media quietly ran ads during the Democratic National Convention in which Boulder, Colorado launches missile attacks on Denver, in an attempt to bolster support for Israeli action against Iran... Today, The Israel Project released a survey showing that 63 percent of Americans support an Israeli "surgical" strike on Iran's purported nuclear facilities, with 55 percent supporting America's participation in such a strike. The poll, however, did not note the organization's effort to lobby those being polled. "The Time for World Leaders to Act Is Now," it concludes... The group is also running ads during the Republican National Convention tying US support for Israel to lessening America's reliance on "Mid-East oil." - RawStory.com

COMEDY IN THE NWO 164 Minutes of Bill Hicks - Last Interview and Best Standup Acts - One of the Only Men Who's Made Me Laugh In The Past Year
The "research team" here came across a link to this video on InformationLiberation.com, where it's labeled, "Bill Hicks' Last Appearance - CapZeyeZ Interview 1993," and I presume it actually is Bill Hicks' last interview. CapZeyeZ is the name of the public access show he appears on. It reminded me again of him, this great comedian, and I was inspired to repost the other videos I have of his on the site into one collection with 164 minutes of all Bill Hicks including this interview. This is the first time I've seen him talking about his ideas without the comedic context. Very interesting. But if you haven't heard of him before, I do recommend you first watch or listen to (below) one of his full-length stand-up routines before the interview--as such you will hear him in his full glory, on stage, as he should be heard. (He's one of the only men who's made me laugh in the past year, and he's been dead since '94. Click his image at right for biography on Wikipedia.) Here's the incredibly funny, and incredibly truth-telling... BILL HICKS!.

One reservation, I don't know that Hick's would be touting Chomsky these days, and I couldn't put it better than dave on InformationLiberation: "Although many of the principles of deception once seen are strikingly obvious, when not seen they are strikingly effective. In this video I think he mentions Noam Chomsky, someone who I first thought presented as a breath of fresh air, I heard someone thinking and telling the truth... Noam Chomsky discusses the role of the media as selling the minds of the people to their sponsors. This is misleading in terms of the true hierarchy and agenda. If one considers BP and Shell who are illegally stealing Iraq at the moment, these present as businesses, two seemingly large corporations and perhaps even competitors. Both of these companies are owned and controlled through the crown as is the media. In view of the ownership, infiltration and control of corporations it is more honest to present these organisations as fronts, they are not independent entities at all. The core agenda is political, money is just an ephemeral device for that agenda... Noam Chomsky himself works for institutions pursuing overthrow of the United States, United Kingdom, indeed the whole of the world." Comments posted on google: "I have to give Bill Hicks full credit for waking me up to how the world really works, and this, his last interview includes the footage which proves the Branch Davidians were murdered at Waco, a Bradley tank with a flame thrower attached. This interview was shown on Austin Public Access and has been on Google before, only to be pulled for some spurious reason. If Bill's friend Kevin Booth is still selling this video then please support his good work (along with Alex Jones) exposing the New World Order, but the information Bill puts across in this interview is too important for humanity to be perceived as having "intellectual copyright". Bill hardly swears in this interview so there's no reason for it to be removed for obscenity reasons, if it gets pulled again then it's the evilarchy, not his friends, followers or disciples requesting it's removal. Please watch, learn and WAKE UP - There IS a war on for our minds... R.I.P. Bill, you're my messiah, Vernon was a false prophet!"

Just like at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), truth seekers are protesting at the Republican National Convention (RNC), and the police are cracking down, in this case with what appears to be random "pre-emptive" searches of citizens' homes and the seizing of their property.

TRANSCRIPT OF INTERVIEW WITH LOCAL ATTORNEY
Protesters Arrested in the Twin Cities (30 Aug 2008)
By: Jane Hamsher Saturday August 30, 2008 3:23 pm
Original post location: CliffSchecter.FireDogLake.com
We're now hearing that "snatch squads" are picking up random people off the streets in the Twin Cities, and someone from Democracy Now has been detained. We interviewed Bruce Nestor of the National Lawyer's Guild when we were at th 17th Street Raid. He lives in the neighborhood and is representing one of the people who was arrested there. I'm including part of the transcript of the video because I think he contextualizes well what is happening:
Glenn Greenwald: So what were they charged with?
Bruce Nestor: They were charged with conspiracy to commit riot, which is about as bullshit a charge -- about as thin a charge -- as you could possibly come up with. And I say that as a lawyer.
Glenn Greenwald: How do you distinguish between that and a protest?
Bruce: You can't. It basically criminalizes political advocacy. I mean, the essence of conspiracy law is if a single individual takes an overt act towards accomplishing an illegal goal such as purchasing a brick, and the police then claim that someone else in his group has an intent to throw that brick, then everyone who advocates that you attend that demonstration...
Glenn: Even if you're not intending to commit that crime...
Bruce: ...even though you're not intending to commit the crime, could all be charged with conspiracy.
Glenn: Is that a very rarely used statute in Minnesota?
Bruce: In Minnesota it is hardly ever is used in state court. Conspiracy is a popular charge of federal prosecutors, because it expands the realm of evidence.
Glenn: But this specific conspiracy...
Nestor: I've never seen it before.
Glen: And you're a lawyer in Minnesota.
Nestor: I'm a lawyer in Minnesota.
Glenn: And you've never this seen it until this convention.
Nestor: That's right. I will say that in 1968 the Chicago 8 were charged with conspiracy to riot. Roundly criticized, in the however many years since now, thirty forty years, as a politically motivated prosecution -- as the type of charge that really is criminalizing free speech activity, and putting people on trial..
Glenn: I mean it clearly seems like it's clearly intending to intimidate. You break into a house with 25 officers with submachine guns drawn and put them all on the floor and handcuff them, it's clearly sending a message that they might want to think twice about participating.
Nestor: I do think....We're not in this country yet where we're having mass detentions of people like this, so it really is about sending a message. I think what it really is designed to do is to send a message to people who agree with some of the viewpoints of people organizing activity and to say - you know what? You can write an email, it's okay to write a letter, to vote, but don't go out in the street, don't organize public activity, because do you want us bursting into your house? Do you want to be associated with people who are getting arrested? It's designed to somehow say these aren't citizens engaged in the exercise of political freedom, but that they're kooks, they're freaks, they're dangerous, stay away from them, don't get involved.
Glenn: And there's been no evidence that any actual violence or illegality has been committed, this is all preventative right, it's all anticipatory?
Bruce: That's right.

Ron Paul followers gathering for own convention (AP.google.com)
... There's no room at the Xcel Energy Center for maverick Ron Paul, so his acolytes have packed their cars, hitched rides on "Ronvoys" and will pitch tents at Ronstock '08 in Minneapolis in defiance of next week's GOP convention in St. Paul, Minn. More than 9,700 tickets had been sold for the Rally for the Republic, which seeks to bring together activists who are anti-war, anti-government regulation, anti-immigration, anti-taxes, anti-Federal Reserve, anti-outsourcing, pro-individual liberty, pro-civil liberties and pro-Paul.
Putin: USA pushed Georgia to war to make Russia look like an enemy (Pravda.ru - Russia)
...Prominent Russian politicians said that the conflict had been orchestrated by the USA because Georgia, being a tiny state, would have never invaded South Ossetia without the USA’s permission. The version also said that the war in South Ossetia had been plotted by Vice President Dick Cheney not to let Barack Obama take the White House as a result of the November elections.
Abkhazia, Georgia, Kosovo, South Ossetia and something called international law (Pravda.ru - Russia)
... The diplomacy coming out of Washington these days, the more so under Secretary of State Rice and President Bush, appears to follow the norm that laws are made to be disregarded, disrespected, ignored, manipulated or simply broken, which is patently obvious through the sheer hypocrisy of Washington’s position on the territorial integrity of Georgia. Let us then examine this question from a legal perspective, which is supposed to be definitive and binding in civilised countries, in states of law which follow due process, presupposing that the USA wishes to include itself in this group of nations.
Georgia quits Moscow 1994 ceasefire agreement (Rian.ru - Russia)
... "The Secretariat of Georgian Reintegration Minister Temur Yakobashvili has declared the Moscow agreement on a ceasefire and separation of forces of May 14, 1994 as void," a statement said on Saturday.

VIDEO We Become Silent - The Last Days Of Health Freedom (Documentary, ~29 min) - WHO, Codex Alimentarius, WTO, pharmaceuticals and population control
Excellent half-hour video about the consequences of the World Health Organization (WHO), and their policies as outlined in documents such as the Codex Alimentarius. Created by filmmaker Kevin P. Miller of Well TV, it is described on Google video as follows, "Documentary about the threat to medical freedom of choice. 'We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom' details the ongoing attempts by multinational pharmaceutical interests and giant food companies — in concert with the WTO, the WHO and others — to limit the public’s access to herbs, vitamins and other therapies." Narrated by Judi Dench.
We Become Silent - The Last Days Of Health Freedom (Documentary, ~29 min):
Control of the most vital of resources, such as food and water, is the most fundamental form of control that can be exerted by governments and other "legal" entities such as the World Health Organization, which would more appropriately and honestly be called something like the World Pharmaceutical Companies Lobby. Be aware, advocates of world government are trying to exert their control in regulatory ways such as the ones noted in this video, in addition to their warmongering and killing.

Excellent uncut interview with Patrick White, owner of a unique book/video/resources store in Toronto called Conspiracy Culture. Covers numerous topics that people encounter in their searches for the truth, including but not limited to: conflicting theories about the events of September 11, 2001; rising martial law in Canada and the US; Barack Obama and what kind of "Change" he may bring; the Security and Prosperity Partnership and the North American Union; what the terms "Illuminati" and "New World Order" mean among conspiracy theorists; natural resource scarcities and control; the possibility of entering an age of enlightenment or an age of darkness; and believe it or not, they cover even more than that, and all in 51 minutes. White is obviously knowledgeable and is well-spoken, really an excellent interview. This is apparently recorded for a documentary directed by Bryan Law called, "The Cave," which is either not out yet or I just can't find it.

VIDEO 9/11 and the British Broadcasting Conspiracy. Excellent documentary about what really did, and did not, happen on 11 September 2001.
Another great documentary on the truth about 9/11 (or perhaps rather the LIES about it)--it was nothing less than the culminating act of a coup d’état for a regime with both national and international ambitions, as seen and felt in this British-made documentary. Full of evidence, and appropriately and artfully cut with scenes from the film 1984, I highly recommend this documentary to anyone wanting to know more about, or share, what really did and did not, happen on 11 September 2001.

Excerpts: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced Tuesday that his country will grant diplomatic recognition to the separatist regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, thereby treating them as states that are independent from the Republic of Georgia, a former province of the Soviet Union that the US and Israel have made into a puppet state to rattle Russia's cage and to have a presence near a key oil pipeline that supplies black gold from the Caspian Sea area to Israel, to Europe and to South Asia via Eilat, Israel and the Red Sea. The White House immediately denounced these actions as "irrational." Apparently, the White House felt that the former Soviet Union lacked a proper rationale for its recognition of these separatist states. You know, like the rationale Caligula used to justify the recognition of Kosovo as a state independent of Serbia, namely, to set up an illicit European drug distribution center manned by vicious drug-running Muslim thugs for purposes of transporting the tons of opium being extracted from the bumper crop of poppies being grown under the watchful eye of CIA black ops in Afghanistan...
Well, the Jackass and Dumbo conventions to elect candidates for the US Presidency are now underway. We are forced to watch and listen to them a few minutes at a time to keep from getting nauseated by the inane tripe and pathological lies that are being fed to the screaming, sycophant idiots known as the Sheople of the United States of America. It is at times like these that we are ashamed to be called US citizens. The whole system has been rigged for over a century. Both Jackass and Dumbo candidates are picked by the elitists and then stuffed down the throats of the sheople. And now they even own the voting machines, so they can make sure they get the results they would prefer, although a win by either candidate moves their one-world agenda forward as their crucial issues are split between the two party platforms. And this year we have two Manchurian candidates, either of whom will take our country into chaos and fascism in very short order. The sheople will have the unspeakable privilege of electing their own executioner...

Incredibly important picture of the moment: "Chinese President Hu Jintao meets with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Dushanbe, capital of Tajikistan, Aug. 27, 2008. The Chinese and Russian presidents are in Dushanbe for Thursday's Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit." Let's really look at this America... How much power do we think the leaders of (i.e. dictators to) our nation hold? It's seems that 2/3rds of the world are against US policy. Wake up America!
VIDEO Cynthia McKinnney at DNC about THE REVOLUTION. "Our country has been hijacked... We know who the real enemies are... We are no longer afraid..."
Don't miss a word! Cynthia McKinney is right on in this video. I'm falling in love with her. In this brief speech she covers so much: spying (civil rights); war and occupation; the "Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act;" a livable life for the people of our land; torture done in the name of USA citizens (Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, etc.); warmongering with Russia and China; the "receivership" (i.e. now total debtors to corporations) status that many US cities are now falling into due to debt; terrorism perpetrated on US citizens in the form of tasers and detention camps; the ignoring of the devastation of, and incompetence of reaction, to hurricanes Katrina and Rita by the US government; the manipulation of the economy by the elites to the point of our enslavement... she doesn't miss a beat. "Our country has been hijacked... We know who the real enemies are... We are no longer afraid." Watch and share!
VIDEO / YouTube: Cynthia McKinney at R-68 in Denver:
Great video of Truth in Action. It would be nice if the truth-seekers of the world could just ignore the liars in the major news media, but the fact is that most people in this land get all their "news" from those liars, and we will continue to live in the land of the silent as long as we allow their lies to go unanswered. And for those major media newswatchers who are still clueless to the fact that the attacks of 9/11 were an inside job, perhaps they'll wake up a little (and go hop on Alex Jone's InfoWars.com or PrisonPlanet.com) if they see masses of beings yelling the truth in the background of their otherwise empty news. Letting lies about events such as 9/11 continue to pervade the media is exactly the behavior that has allowed us to be led to our current state of nuclear threat in the world. This video is a great study in contrast between the truly mindless talking heads, and free beings seeking the truth.

Daily News Headlines & Propaganda for 29 August 2008 Mid-day Report (see All News):
For many self-interested reasons the American mainstream media continues to bury the news that the USA is RIGHT NOW, THIS VERY MOMENT toying with nuclear war--this despite its obvious significance to ALL LIFE on the planet. And when they do tell of it, they simply lie about it; in fact, they tell the exact opposite of the truth. Please don't continue live in the dark but cozy cave of propaganda, come out into the light and search for the truth. Be free! Live free! The truth about the powers-that-be in this world is not pretty at all, but we must wake up to it. Don't believe the lies. Our leadership is currently leading us towards the brink of nuclear war. The threat of nuclear war may seem like some vague childhood memory to you, as it once did to me, but thanks to our megalomaniacal leadership, it has very quickly become a reality once again. Wake up! Know the truth and share it. Human beings are free!

And lastly... for the verbal overview, check out Jason Bermas (of the Alex Jones radio show and Loose Change the movie), interviewing Paul Craig Roberts (Asst. Secretary of the Treasury during the Reagan Administration) about the current VERY REAL nuclear tension between the USA and Russia. One thing to note, I do NOT agree with Roberts on the point that Obama is more likely to avoid, or delay, nuclear war, or conventional wars for that matter, than McCain. Just check out this previous post which contain an article that lays out the Obama-Biden side of things, which is just as warmongering, and just as likely to lead us to nuclear destruction as McCain. The governance of this land needs an almost total overhaul, one of the few very exceptions that comes to mind being Ron Paul. We need truly REVOLUTIONARY change, if the people of this land are to SURVIVE and have the opportunity to FLOURISH as we each exercise our inherent ability to CHOOSE independently as free beings--yet another pendulum swing from the fake right to the fake left will make no difference.
RADIO INTERVIEW Nuclear Armaggedon: Bermas Interviews Paul Roberts:
AUDIO Jason Bermas interview of Paul Roberts on the Alex Jones Show about the rising nuclear risk in the world
Description of the interview from DiscloseTV: "Paul Craig Roberts, economist and former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration, tells Jason Bermas on the Alex Jones Show that the Bush neocons are leading the United States into a nuclear confrontation with Russia over the situation in Georgia and South Ossetia. Roberts gives the conflict 'almost total certainty if John McCain gets in office… this is not something that will happen in the next fifty years, it’s going to happen in the next two or three years.'" Thanks Jason, Alex and DiscloseTV!
ARTICLE Obama and McCain are telling us they will just go for BIGGER wars... BELIEVE THEM! NO to Obama! NO to McCain!
NO Obama! NO McCain! Seriously, folks... they are both promising to put more blood on our hands. They are both war mongers. Obama's selection of Biden is just one more clear example (please read below)... The two parties are simply playing the farce, desperately trying to make everything appear OK, just for another moment. They are just putting on a play, a movie if you will, that makes the American people believe they still have their liberties. Don't believe it. Escape the two-party paradigm. And whatever you do, stop worrying about who to vote for for president--it really DOES NOT MATTER... Direct action, free beings being free, is the only possible answer.

Joe Biden: Russia, China, India: "The Real War"
Obama's running mate presents the strategic plan for the next administration
Global Research, August 28, 2008
by Umberto Pascali
On Aug 27 2008 at the Democratic Convention in Denver, Vice-presidential candidate Sen. Joseph Biden presented the plan for the real war, the war against China, Russia. He repeated the key points pushed by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his obsessive determination to go to the final clash with Russia and Asia.
For Biden, The greatest mistake of the Bush administration was its failure "to face the biggest forces shaping this century. The emergence of Russia, China and India's great powers".
What was the "consequence of this neglect"? "Russia challenging… Georgia's freedom." The Obama-Biden administration will repair those criminal mistakes... Barack and I will end that neglect. We will hold Russia accountable."
The wars of the Bush administration were, so to speak the wrong ones.
The new administration will unchain the real war. The war to confront the emergence of Russia, China, India.
The war, the real war will have to be waged in Afghanistan/Pakistan - exactly the area where it will be more disruptive for the feared Russia, China India challenge.
The previous administration was not warmonger enough, according to Biden. The new Democratic administration will increase the number of troops sent in central Asia.
Then "the real war" against America's enemies will start. "al-Qaida and the Taliban - the people who have actually attacked us on 9/11 - they've regrouped in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan and are plotting new attacks..."

VIDEO Lyndon LaRouche on World War III, depopulation, Barack Obama, energy crises and more (7 May 2008)
Lyndon LaRouche, a former presidential candidate, statesman, economist and chairman and founder of the political action committee LaRouche PAC, delivered this address in Washington, DC on May 7, 2008. As I've noted before, I'm not sure what I think about the entirety of LaRouche's economics, this address is right on. Whatever one's particular economics theory or theoretical leanings, it is clear we all need to stand up against the prevailing theory run-amok today that is clearly stamped with the old adage, absolute power absolutely corrupts. The American people, quite simply, are being robbed, and most of them don't even know it. Excellent work, Mr. LaRouche. Thank you.

From article "Fascism Anyone? Free Inquiry pg. 20, Spring 2003" written by political scientist Dr. Lawrence Britt whom studied the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile). Dr. Britt found they all had 14 elements in common. He calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism.
VIDEO 14 Defining Characteristics Of Fascism:
TEXT Dr. Britt's 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism:
1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottoes, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of �gneed.�h The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
4. Supremacy of the Military
Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
5. Rampant Sexism
The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy.
6. Controlled Mass Media
Sometimes the media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.
7. Obsession with National Security
Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined
Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.
9. Corporate Power is Protected
The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
10. Labor Power is Suppressed
Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed .
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment
Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
14. Fraudulent Elections
Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections."
Original Video: http://www.bushflash.com/14.html
An insight-filled documentary about the Israel-Palestine conflict (if it should be called that, "conflict" seems like too light a word), covering both what is happening on the ground, and why most Americans have no idea what's happening on the ground. Filled with contrasting images from American and international press, including some surprisingly good BBC coverage, this documentary... I think... is showing a lot of TRUTH. This is especially insightful given the recent REVERSE (I.E. LYING) REPORTING of the US media about what is going on in Georgia. They tell us that Russia attacked first and Georgia responded, and likewise this video shows how they usually tell us that Palestinians attack first and Israelis responds, when it seems the reverse is true. It's getting so bad over here that I tend to believe that most of the time I'm not only being lied to by major media, but that the major media are almost always telling the exact OPPOSITE of the truth. Insanity! Wake up from your comfortable slumber, America! I was pretty damn comfortable until recently, too. War and aggression are not the answer. Say no to our government's warmongering. Refused to be lied to! Say no to war!

BREAKING NEWS Russia recognizes S.Ossetia, Abkhazia as independent. Powerful elite "world leaders" give speeches, make threats...
Quotes below are from the full article at:
Russia: S.Ossetia, Abkhazia independent (ChinaDaily.com - 27 Aug 08)... Russia Tuesday formally recognized the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as two independent states, which is set to challenge the United States and its NATO allies who have been the staunch supporter of Georgia.
"This is not an easy choice, but it is the only way to save the lives of people," Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said in a nationally-televised speech. The top Russian leader said that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili had "opted for genocide."
US President George W. Bush called on Russia to reconsider the "irresponsible decision."
The European Union said it "strongly condemned" the move and a statement from the French EU presidency said the 27-nation bloc would now "examine from this point of view the consequences of Russia's decision."
A White House spokesman said the US was "looking at a variety of options with regard to consequences for Russia's behavior in Georgia, its aggression in Georgia."
Amid a hail of Western criticism, Medvedev was unapologetic, saying: "We're not afraid of anything." "We will do everything we can to avoid" a new Cold War, he said in an interview to French LCI television. But he added: "If they want relations to worsen, they will get it."
Fears of an escalation were rife, with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner saying: "We fear a war and we don't want one."
His German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier said all sides were "playing with fire" and urged: "The spiral of provocation must stop, and immediately."
Britain's Foreign Minister David Miliband said the announcement "further inflames an already tense situation in the region."
Wake up free human beings of the united states of America! The US government must be forced to serve its citizenry, not the opposite. You are their master. Demand in any way you can that the US cease all hostilities against the people of the rest the world. Do not allow WW III to begin while you sleep. Now is a time for action.
