FOX News Marginalizes Giuliani Critics And 9/11 Victims As “Campaign Crazies” And Democrat Kirsten Powers Helps

Saturday June 2, 2007 

A group of New York City firefighters and family members of 9/11 victims, upset with the faulty radios and what they called a lack of coordination at Ground Zero, have been protesting at Rudy Giuliani’s fundraisers in an effort to challenge his media image as a 9/11 hero. But rather than air the allegations in a fair and balanced forum, FOX News marginalized the critics as “campaign crazies” and equated them with a man who said he would never vote for Romney because he’s a Mormon. Sadly, “Democratic strategist” Kirstin Powers declined the opportunity to advocate for the other side.


The discussion on last night's (5/31/07) Hannity & Colmes opened with Sean Hannity playing a clip of Romney politely approaching a potential constituent. “I’m one person who will never vote for a Mormon,” the man told Romney and refused to shake his hand. That was followed by a clip of Giuliani telling an unknown but aggressive questioner, “The fact is that I never realized the towers would collapse.” Hannity followed that up by repeating an old falsehood, that Republican guest Michael Steele “(was) hit with Oreo cookies” during a 2002 gubernatorial debate.

Powers seemed to have spent all her prep time on her appearance and none on any substantive issues. She either didn't know or didn't care that Hannity had just misrepresented the Oreo cookie incident. Her main interest seemed to be in flirting prettily with Hannity. She looked absolutely gorgeous but seemed to have nothing to say other than “this kind of stuff happens all the time on campaigns… A good politician, a good campaigner knows how to react.” It never seemed to have occurred to her that here was an opportunity to point out the vulnerabilities of a top Republican presidential candidate or even mention that there are plenty of real 9/11 heroes who take issue with Giuliani’s actions and his heroic image.

It was Alan Colmes who brought out the fact that Steele was not pelted with cookies but, as Steele later admitted, “when I looked at my feet, someone had rolled Oreo cookies in my direction.”

Colmes continued to make all the points Powers should have. He asked Steele, “What’s wrong with asking someone like Rudy Giuliani questions… there are some questions about, for example, the decision to put the emergency bunker on the 27th floor of the World Trade Center…. Those are legitimate questions to ask a candidate.”

Steele said it’s legitimate but attacked the off-camera questioner, first by saying that it was “after-action questioning” and then complaining about “the accusatory nature or tone… If you come to the question presuming the answer, then it’s not a fair question because anything the candidate says, you’re not gonna accept.”

Colmes turned to Powers and said, “Rudy Giuliani is being presented in this campaign as America’s mayor, the hero of 9/11, there are some people who take sincere issue with that. Is that not a fair line of questioning to ask him?”

Powers agreed it was “absolutely fair.” But the feckless Democrat quickly blew the golden opportunity to advocate for her Party that Colmes had just dropped in her lap. Instead, she changed the subject back to the same talking point she had already made and for good measure, she threw in a barb at Hillary Clinton. “I think the candidates should expect people to – some people are frustrated, this is where they have their outlets, I’ve even defended people who have heckled Hillary Clinton for her vote on the war.”

So once again, Colmes did Powers’ job for her. He brought up how Giuliani had “a frozen zone” where he was speaking. Turning back to Steele, Colmes said, “I understand the need for security and protection but these people should be approachable. If they’re going to be our representatives, we should be able to approach them and ask them questions.”

At first, Steele tapdanced, saying that since Giuliani doesn’t have the same Secret Service protection Obama has, the buffer zone is needed. But, when Colmes pressed further about what level of approachability there should be, Steele admitted he had been very approachable as a candidate. Steele then backpedaled further by saying that both Clinton and Giuliani knew how to deal with these situations. “You don’t need to create such a buffer where the candidate is unapproachable. You want to give them the chance to show how they handle pressure.”

That sounded to me like a concession to Colmes' point. But Hannity broke in to end the segment. Powers, of course, said nothing.

US Attorney Resigns Following Conyers' Request for BBC Documents

by Greg Palast
June 1, 2007

Tim Griffin, formerly right hand man to Karl Rove, resigned Thursday as US Attorney for Arkansas hours after BBC Television 'Newsnight' reported that Congressman John Conyers requested the network's evidence on Griffin's involvement palastconyerswsubtitle.jpgin 'caging voters.' Greg Palast, reporting for BBC Newsnight, obtained a series of confidential emails from the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign. In these emails, Griffin, then the GOP Deputy Communications Director, transmitted so-called 'caging lists' of voters to state party leaders.

Experts have concluded the caging lists were designed for a mass challenge of voters' right to cast ballots. The caging lists were heavily weighted with minority voters including homeless individuals, students and soldiers sent overseas.

Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee investigating the firing of US Attorneys, met Thursday evening in New York with Palast. After reviewing key documents, Conyers stated that, despite Griffin's resignation, "We're not through with him by any means."

Conyers indicated to the BBC that he thought it unlikely that Griffin could carry out this massive 'caging' operation without the knowledge of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rove.

Griffin has not responded to requests by BBC to explain this 'caging' operation. However, in emails subpoenaed by Conyers' committee, Griffin complains to Monica Goodling, an assistant to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, about the BBC reporter's reproduction of caging lists in Palast's book, "Armed Madhouse."

In the email dated February 5 of this year, Griffin stated that the purpose of 'caging' was to identify "fraudulent" voters. This contradicts one explanation of the Bush campaign to BBC that the lists were of potential donors and not in any way created to challenge voters.

Griffin confidentially wrote: "The real story is this: There were thousands of reported illegal/fake voter registrations around the country, so some of the Republican State Parties mailed letters welcoming new voters to the newly registered voters. … The Republican State Parties ultimately wanted to show that thousands of fraudulent registrations had been completed."

Last Wednesday, Goodling testified under a grant of immunity before the House Judiciary Committee that Gonzales' Deputy Paul McNulty, "failed to disclose that he had some knowledge of allegations that Tim Griffin had been involved in vote 'caging' during his work on the President's 2004 campaign."

Goodling's testimony prompted Conyers' request to the BBC for the Griffin emails.

Last night Palast showed Conyers a Griffin email from August 2004 indicating that Griffin not only knew of 'caging,' but directed the operation.

Top Israeli rabbis advocate genocide


Ali Abunimah writing from Chicago, USA, Live from Palestine, 31 May 2007


Legitimate targets, to senior Israeli theocrats: Palestinian children play on the rubble of a destroyed Hamas training base after an Israeli air strike in the southern Gaza Strip, 29 May 2007. (Hatem Omar/MaanImages)

Yesterday I wrote a piece entitled "Israel's House of Horrors" about the openly murderous statements of Israeli cabinet ministers. Just when I thought it couldn't get worse, I read a news article on the website of The Jerusalem Post that Israel's former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu -- one of the most senior theocrats in the Jewish State "ruled that there was absolutely no moral prohibition against the indiscriminate killing of civilians during a potential massive military offensive on Gaza aimed at stopping the rocket launchings" ("Eliyahu advocates carpet bombing Gaza," The Jerusalem Post, 30 May, 2007).

The Jerusalem Post reported that Mordechai made this ruling in a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert citing biblical authority. The letter was published in a weekly journal distributed in synagogues throughout Israel. The report states that "According to Jewish war ethics, wrote Eliyahu, an entire city holds collective responsibility for the immoral behavior of individuals. In Gaza, the entire populace is responsible because they do nothing to stop the firing of Kassam rockets."

Eliayahu's son, Shmuel Eliayhu, himself chief rabbi of Safad, amplified his father's comments, stating: "If they don't stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand." He added, "And if they do not stop after 1,000 then we must kill 10,000. If they still don't stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop."

This kind of genocidal hatred of Palestinians is not unusual in Israel. What used to be unusual was for it to be spoken so brazenly and openly. Of course we know what would happen if a Muslim or Palestinian religious figure made such a statement. We know the international outcry when Iran's President Ahmadinejad allegedly made statements calling for the elimination of Israel. Will all those EU officials who curried favor by condemning Ahmedinejad take an equally strong and public stance against Israel's former chief rabbi? Will they demand that Olmert publicly repudiate the letter he received?

A Muslim making such statements about Jews would certainly be banished from traveling to the United States, and could end up in Guantanamo for much less.

Under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide adopted in the wake of the Nazi holocaust, "Direct and public incitement to commit genocide" is a punishable act. One wonders whether the UN Security Council, which created an international tribunal to investigate the killing of one man in Lebanon, will pay any attention to the indiscriminate state- and theocratically-sanctioned massacres of Palestinians by Israel.

Will Hillary Clinton, who continues to defame Palestinian schoolchildren with the lie that they are taught "hatred" in their schoolbooks, or any of our other pandering candidates, take a moment out from praising Israel to condemn Eliayahu's statement? What about Oprah Winfrey, who at the invitation of Elie Wiesel is to undertake a "solidarity" visit to Israel?

It seems there are no moral restraints left in Israel. It is right and proper that such a regime be isolated with boycott, divestment and sanctions until it desists from its racist -- and potentially genocidal -- practices. It is to be celebrated that an increasing number of individuals and organizations understand this: yesterday the governing body of the UK's University and College Union voted overwhelmingly to support a boycott of Israeli academia. Today UNISON, the UK's largest public service union announced it will vote on similar motions at its next congress. As Israel's house of horror grows, so does the movement to confront it. In that there is great hope.

Update on Pending Anti-Gun Legislation
in California (AB334, AB1471, AB821, AB1634)

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

The California Legislature is currently considering several anti-gun and anti-hunting bills that will have dire consequences for your rights. On Tuesday, May 29, two bills, Assembly Bill 334 and Assembly Bill 1471, aimed at stripping away our Second Amendment rights passed the Assembly and now are on their way to the Senate for its consideration.

Passed by a vote of 41 to 32, AB334, would make it a crime, for any person whose handgun is stolen or irretrievably lost, not to report the theft or loss to a local law enforcement agency within 5 working days after his or her discovery of the theft or loss; or within 5 working days after the date he or she should have reasonably known of the theft or loss. AB334 would also let local governments enact reporting requirements that are more strict than those specified in the bill.

AB1471 passed by a vote of 44 to 29. This legislation would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be microstamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing. Under AB1471, the manufacture, sale, and transfer of handguns that do not include their identifying information would be a crime.

In addition, the Senate may soon also consider Assembly Bill 821 which passed the Assembly earlier this month. AB 821 would ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting in various hunting zones around the state that incorporate California condor range. A lead ammunition ban will greatly affect our hunting heritage in California.

Please contact your State Senator today and respectfully urge him or her to OPPOSE AB334, AB1471, and AB821. Contact information for your Senator can be found by clicking here.

In the Assembly, Assembly Bill 1634 is still pending action on the Assembly floor. This measure requires every dog older than four months to be spayed or neutered. Owners hoping to be able to breed their dogs at some point during their lives would be required to apply annually to their local government for an "intact" permit. Except under very limited circumstances, the local government official has the power to deny issuance of an intact permit without cause. The cost of the annual permit is unspecified in the legislation and is to be determined by the local government. Penalty for non-compliance is a $500 fine imposed by the state and any additional fines imposed by the local government.

This legislation threatens to keep hunters from making decisions based upon their own personal circumstances. It will prevent hunters from continuing the tradition of occasionally breeding their favorite dog in order to provide other hunters with good dogs and defray some of the costs associated with caring for their animals. From a financial perspective, the bill discriminates against hunters with limited budgets.

It is critical that you contact your State Assembly Member and ask that he or she oppose this overreaching and discriminatory legislation. Please ask them to vote "no" on AB1634. Contact information for your Assembly Member can be found by visiting

Firearms offer protection to legally armed citizens
Published Friday, June 1, 2007

I am writing to clarify that the May 21 letter, "Act to limit access to automatic weapons," by David Rice of Bluffton was not submitted by me.

I have been a resident of Beaufort County for 20 years and spent 13 of those years as a law enforcement officer. I recognize that firearms ownership is a right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. More importantly, I recognize that legally armed citizens use firearms to protect themselves from violent crime thousands of times every year. Though Bluffton Police Chief David McAllister and Beaufort County Sheriff P.J. Tanner would love to be able to protect each and every one of our citizens around the clock, common sense tells us this simply isn't feasible.

Please don't confuse me with the other Rice, who wrote of "simple handguns" and says more gun laws would have prevented the Best Buy tragedy.

‘Monster Pig’ was huge — just not wild
Giant hog shot by Alabama 11-year-old was farm-raised porker named Fred
The Associated Press
Updated: 8:43 p.m. CT June 1, 2007

FRUITHURST, Ala. - The huge hog that became known as "Monster Pig" after being killed by an 11-year-old boy was raised on a farm where it had another name: Fred.

Phil Blissitt said he purchased the 6-week-old pig in December 2004 as a Christmas gift for his wife, Rhonda, and they sold it to the owner of Lost Creek Plantation after deciding to get rid of all the pigs at their farm.

He told The Anniston Star in a story Friday that the sale was four days before the hog was killed in a 150-acre fenced area of the plantation.

"I just wanted the truth to be told. That wasn't a wild pig," Rhonda Blissitt said.

The Blissitts said they didn't know the huge hog drawing widespread media attention was Fred until they were contacted by Andy Howell, game warden for the Alabama Department of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries, whose agency found that no laws were violated in the hunt.

"Did you see that pig on TV?" Phil Blissitt recalled Howell asking. "I said, 'Yeah, I had one about that size.' He said, 'No, that one is yours.'

"That's when I knew."'

Phil Blissitt said he became irritated when he learned that some thought the photos of Fred were doctored.

"That was a big hog," he said.

Mike Stone, the father of Jamison Stone, the 11-year-old boy who shot the huge hog to death during what they described as a three-hour chase, has said the hog weighed more than 1,000 pounds and was more than 9 feet long. He told the Star he had been under the impression that the hog was wild, not farm-raised.

"We were told that it was a feral hog," Mike Stone told the Star, "and we hunted it on the pretense that it was a feral hog."

Telephone messages left Friday with Eddy Borden, the owner of Lost Creek Plantation, were not immediately returned.

US debt could trigger dollar collapse, UN warns Body: Desha Priya
Press Esc
Friday June 1, 2007

The United States dollar is facing imminent collapse in the face of an unsustainable debt, the United Nations warned today.

United States debt, which had now deepened to well over $3 trillion, might turn out to be unsustainable in the rest of 2007 or next, putting further downward pressure on the United States dollar, Rob Vos, the Director of the Development Policy and Analysis Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), told correspondents at a Headquarters press conference.

He pointed out that since its peak in 2002, the dollar had depreciated vis-à-vis the major currencies by some 35 per cent and by 25 per cent against a broader range of other currencies.

Vos made these comments at the launch of the 2007 World Economic Situation and Prospects report midyear update.

With that increased debt the risk of a sharp depreciation of the dollar continued, he warned. If countries willing to invest in United States dollar assets expected further depreciation, they might be less willing to hold dollar assets, triggering a much sharper fall in the United States dollar. The risk of disorderly adjustment and the steep fall of the dollar existed. The policy challenge was how to prevent a hard landing of the United States dollar and forge a benign adjustment of the global imbalance.

In terms of the United States housing sector, he noted that a recession in the housing sector had continued in 2007, with a slowdown in activity and a large number of unsold homes. While house prices had not fallen, that might happen in the months and years to come if the recession continued as expected. A decline in prices would affect the domestic market, particularly household consumption in the United States, resulting in the risk of a serious recession in its economy, slowing growth from 2.1 per cent to 0.5 per cent in 2007 and 2008. That would then significantly slow the world economy and transmit the recession into the rest of the world.

The United States deficit had increased to $860 billion at the end of 2006, and was expected to fall to $800 billion in 2007. That deficit was basically being financed by surpluses in the developing and oil exporting countries, as well as some major developed countries, in particular Japan and Germany. The European Union,at large, was projected to continue to have a slight deficit on its current account.

Continuing, he said the current tendency in macroeconomic policy was not all in the right direction, particularly in the surplus countries where there had been a tightening of monetary and fiscal policies, particularly in Germany and Japan, making it more difficult for the United States to lower its external deficits by export growth. The United States would also need to adopt some contractionary policies to slow down its deficit, he recommended.

Jeff Reed
Monday May 21, 2007

Something is wrong with the United States. I think most of us have noticed it. There is a mortal rot in the country, made manifest by many little rots that are hard to integrate mentally yet are, I think, somehow related. The change is grave, accelerating, probably irreversible, and fascinating. Things are not as they were.

The United States is the most hated country on the planet, followed by, to the extent that there is a distinction, Israel. So far as I know, there are no other contenders. You can say “Who cares?” as many will say, or “Screw’em if they can’t take a joke,” or “I’d ratherh be feared than loved.” All very droll. Still, it is an interesting datum. No country ever lives up to its own PR, but there was a time when America was widely admired. Now, almost universally, it is seen as a rogue state. And is.

This carries a price. The US consulate in Guadalajara is part fortress, part prison, with barriers and cameras and bars and rentacops, and they take away a woman’s lipstick if she is going to enter. Maybe a country that fears lipstick needs to think. The French consulate around the corner is wide open, like all others that I know of. The French, Chinese, Japanese and so on aren’t hated.

(1) The US government now lives in its own, strange, insulated world.

(2) The United States is the most militarily aggressive country on the planet, followed closely by Israel. I am aware of no other contenders.

Some of this combativeness is obvious – attacking Iraq for no good reason, occupying Afghanistan, threatening Syria and Iran, attacking Lebanon by proxy, bombing Somalia, putting troops in the Philippines to hunt Moslems. The US is also looking for trouble with Venezuela, threatening North Korea, moving to “contain” China (Doesn’t a container need to be bigger than its contents?), embargoing Cuba, pushing into Central Asia, increasing the military budget, and pushing NATO ever closer to Russia. (How stupid can you get? Very. Stay tuned.) And the Pentagon now has Africom, African Command. Africa is now America’s business.

(3) Powerful domestic hostilities grip the United States. Maybe you have to be outside of it really to see it. I live in Mexico. You can go for…well, five years and counting, without hearing angry talk about this or that group. In America, women hate men and men are getting sick of American women. Blacks hate whites hate Hispanics. “Affirmative action” engenders intense hostility that doesn’t go away. It isn’t the normal friction found in any country. It is serious antagonism quashed by federal force.

And the black-white-brown thing has very real potential for getting nasty. This we don’t talk about.

(4) A curious state of fear prevails in America, but it is a governmental creation, a calculated manipulative Disneyland. Perhaps soon we will have Terror Mouse.

Recently I was in Washington. Everywhere there were the artificialities of fear. The steel pop-up barriers in the roads, the stop’em-bombs steel poles on sidewalks, the endless warnings to report suspicious behavior on loudspeakers in the subway. The searches of everything, the metal-detecting doorways even on buildings of county governments, of schools. (Schools, for Chrissakes. What is wrong here?) And of course the confiscation of shampoo at the airport. This is nuts.

(5) The bullying of people entering the US. Any country has the right to determine who enters. Fine. If you don’t want them to enter, don’t give them visas. If you issue a visa, try to be courteous.

Violeta had a visa, issued by the consulate, both times when we went to the US. Still she got bullied by the border Nazis. It was ugly. I am obviously not a Mexican, but I get the same hostile questioning as to where I am going, why I was in Mexico, and so on. It is none of their business where I go in my country. Or shouldn’t be, but there are no limitations on governmental powers now. A friend, married to a Mexicana, again with a visa, got separated from her, and both got abusive questioning. She came out crying.

America was not like this. Now it is.

Compare this with the real world. I land in Beijing – evil commie Beijing, right? Maybe twenty seconds to see whether my visa was valid, clonk of stamp, thank you, no baggage search, into a taxi. Vi and I land in Paris, en route to Italy. Glance at passport, yep, it’s a passport, no stamp, no nothing, on we go. Italy didn’t even look at our passports. Grown-ups.

I am not ashamed of the United States. It is a hell of a country. Been there, done that, loved it. In two weeks in DC with Violeta, although she is clearly not American, she was everywhere, always, treated with perfect courtesy and friendliness, whether on Cap Hill or Farmville, Virginia. Americans really are good folk. The government isn’t. It’s the gravest problem we face, both internationally and domestically.

(6) The Constitution really is going away, or has gone. It never did work as well as it should have, but few things human ever do. Habeas corpus is dead, right to an attorney, congressional right to declare war – it’s not even worth listing the list. Joe iPod in the burbs doesn’t care because it doesn’t affect him, yet. Git them Hay-rabs, ain’t no draft, plenty sushi. Urg.

(7) The increasing, detailed, intrusive regulation of life, the national desire for control, control, control. Everything is the business of some form of government. Want to paint your shutters? The condo association won’t let you. Let dogs in your bar? Never. Decide who to sell your house to? Racial matter. Own a dog? Shot card, pooper-scooper, leash, gotta be spayed, etc. Have a bar for men only, women only, whites or blacks only? Here come the federal marshals. What isn’t controlled by government is controlled by the crypto-vindictive mob rule of political correctness. This wasn’t always in the American character.

Add the continuing presence of police in the schools, the arrest in handcuffs of children of seven, the expulsions for drawing a picture of a soldier with a gun. Something very twisted is going on.

How much of the public knows what is happening, or even knows that something is happening? I don’t know. But I don’t think that it’s going to go away. In ten years it will be an entirely different place with the same name. Almost is now.

Locals Rise Up Against al Qaeda -- at a Cost

A US Army medic tries in vain to save the life of off-duty APTN cameraman Saif Mohammad Fakhry.
Baghdad – They were still bringing in the wounded when we arrived at the mosque in southern Amiriya Thursday morning, racing from the armored vehicles surrounded by bursts of gunfire.

An American soldier was among the casualties – killed by small arms fire. His name is being withheld. His commanders said he was an exceptional young man who re-enlisted after surviving a mortar attack that killed his roommate.

The Iraqi wounded were taken to the mosque – laid out on the teal blue carpet stained by pools of blood and littered with shards of glass from the shattered ceiling panels which had read "There is no God but God...'

One of them was Saif Mohammad Fakhry, an Iraqi cameraman with the television news agency APTN. His brother said he had gone out in the street with a gun after suspected al-Qaeda militants attacked the neighborhood.

A doctor from the U.S. Army's Stryker brigade, sweating with heat and exertion, worked frantically to insert a chest tube in his side to try to keep his lung from collapsing. I turned away for a moment as an American medic worked on an Iraqi man who had been shot in the face. When I turned back – he had died.

The Army's Arabic interpreter who had held Saif's hand knelt by him to pray. Saif, 26, was the younger brother of Omar Fakhry, 33, a photojournalist for Arabic television stations and Yasser Fakhry, 31, who was also an Iraqi journalist. They shouted in grief.

"Why, why?" Omar sobbed, cradling his brother's body.

"Take my picture – it's normal," he said when I asked. Violent death and sorrow is an Iraqi cameraman's stock in trade – he and Saif would have videotaped dozens and dozens of such scenes. Omar reminded me that the three of us had covered the same story in happier times – a bridge reopening in northern Iraq three years ago. Saif had been his assistant then.

Saif's phone rang – Omar reached into his brother's blood-splattered pockets and pulled it out. I asked if he had told Saif's wife, who was expecting their first child any day.

"What am I supposed to tell her?" he asked.

"I told him to stay inside – that the fighting was none of our business," he told me, still sobbing. "He was a peaceful man but he said: 'They are killing us every day – we live like this with no electricity, with no water and they are killing us."

Saif had gone into the street carrying the rifle that each family in Baghdad is allowed to own. The U.S. military normally considers guns on the streets justification to shoot on sight but in Amiriya that rule was relaxed as neighborhood men spurred on by religious leaders gathered to fight al-Qaeda.

"They have a better ability to find and kill al-Qaeda that we do," said Lt Colonel Dale Kuehl, commander of the 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment responsible for the area.

One of the imams leading the group said they killed an al-Qaeda leader and two other al-Qaeda members in the clashes Thursday – a target on the Americans' own hit list. U.S. officials said they had no independent confirmation.

An hour before, the local Iraqi Army brigade commander had called Kuehl asking for more ammunition and for help in evacuating the wounded in the midst of the vehicle ban the armed group had asked for while they fought al-Qaeda. The ammunition wasn't for the Iraqi Army but for a group of men not normally considered allies of the U.S. Army or the Shiite-dominated security forces. The U.S. commander said he would evacuate the wounded.

Later in the day, rounds of AK-47 ammunition wrapped in paper and bundled in sardine-like cans were distributed from the Iraqi Army to neighborhood leaders.

U.S. military officials said some of the group are what Iraqis call the 'honorable resistance' – including former Baathists and members of the Sunni insurgent group the Islamic Army who appear to have agreed to stop attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces to fight a common enemy. Local residents said al-Qaeda forces had taken root in Amiriyah, one of the last remaining Sunni neighborhoods in Baghdad, and were launching unprovoked attacks.

"We don't like the Americans because they allowed – excuse the expression – these dogs of Osama bin Laden to come to Iraq," said a school teacher at the mosque. He hasn't worked in more than three years. "Because they said I was a Baathi," he said.

Some of the group appeared to be ordinary neighborhood men who have taken up arms as part of what U.S. military commanders say is a badly equipped, undermanned and largely untrained force. The number of neighborhood fighters was impossible to verify but appeared to be only about several dozen.

"They seem to be a bunch of residents who are tired and fed up, and everyone has an AK," said Kuehl.

"We were expecting people from the area to help protect the area more," a local leader told Kuehl.

"They're afraid, we understand," Kuehl told him, advising him to regroup and allow Iraqi Army forces to help protect the area. Most of the Iraqi Army are Shiite and unwelcome in this heavily Sunni area.

A U.S. commander said there were no clashes on Friday but five U.S. soldiers were wounded – at least two of them seriously – when a major weapons cache they'd found exploded.

"We are conducting ongoing operations to reinforce the lead of local residents and local sheikhs," said Lieutant Colonel John Reynolds, from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. "We want to build momentum with the help of this group."

U.S. commanders hope that the group that has stepped forward to fight al-Qaeda could form the basis of a local police force in Amariyah – largely Sunni and mirroring the population here.

In the mosque the most seriously of the Iraqi wounded were taken to the main U.S. military hospital. "Don't take me to an Iraqi hospital," begged one fighter who had been shot four times. "The Shiite there will kill me."

Yasser sat as the shadow's lengthened and watched over his brother. Saif, who drew his last breath in a mosque after fighting for his home, died a martyr's death. His friends laid a bullet on his chest.

WWI Russia and "Communism"
A brief History
-Ryan Dawson

Russia had three major wars in a row, the WWI, the Red and White War and WWII. The revolution had large support from the so called communist who cared about that ideology about as much as America cares about spreading democray in Iraq. It was all about toppling the Czar so that the international bankers could put a central bank in the last state in Europe that they didn't control. Once in charge they turned on the workers and pesants and thre Russia into rapid industrialization mainly geared around war.

The French Banks were bankrolling Russia's MIC and the American Banks mostly Morgan, were backing the French. This was the set up for the first World War, the dream to tare Europe apart and hook it into massive debt. Germany served its purpose in weakening Russia enough for thr revolution and the Eastern front was lost. However once the bankers were in control of Russia, Germany was no longer needed. The cabal had recently created the Federal Reserve in the US as well and the US was brought into the war to finish the Germans off. Because of Russia's war the power had been concentrated into the military and they lived under a virtual police state, a secret police state. Workers were thrown into a choice of serve or starve. No buddy gave a damn about the Serbs killing an Austro-Hungarian Franz Ferdinand. That is not what all those people were dying for. And remeber Russia was on the side of the Serbs (the Black Hand Sabbat) the terrorists as was America.

Meanwhile the British were already fighting over Palestine, despite invading Gaza 4 times.

"After occupying El Arish in Sinai in December 1916, the ANZAC mounted division led British forces up to the Palestine border. With his forces needed elsewhere, General Archibald Murray, Commander in Chief of the British Forces in the Middle East, postponed making further advances.

General Friedrich Kressenstein, commander of the Turkish Expeditionary Force, occupied the coastal fortress of Gaza, blocking the main route into Palestine. General Murray was determined to take Gaza and sent General Dobell, commander of the Eastern Forces, in March 1917. Kressenstein had 18,000 men but was outnumbered 2 to 1 by Dobell's forces.

General Dobell massed the main bulk of his men 8km from Gaza. Undetected in a dense sea fog, Dobell's cavalry was able to cut off the town's rear on the 26th March. The main infantry attack that followed was less successful. A Turkish counterattack and water shortages forced Dobell to order his men to retreat. General Dobell lost 4,000 men against about 2,400 Turkish and German casualties. Dobell estimated that the Turks lost three times that number and at the time the battle was reported as a British victory.

In June 1917, General Edmund Allenby was transferred from the command of the Third Army in France to become commander of the British Forces in Palestine. Lieutenant-General Harry Chauvel was given command of the Desert Mounted Troops and the infantry divisions were allotted to Lieutenant-General Philip Chetwode (XX Corps) and Major General Edward Bulfin (XXI Corps).

The British plan was for a preliminary operation against Beersheba to enable them to take the higher ground. Once established at Beersheba the forces would be deployed to roll-up the Turkish flank. Chetwode and XX Corps and the Desert Mounted Corps formed the main striking force, whereas Bulfin and XXI Corps would make the attack on Gaza itself.

On the night of 30th October, over 40,000 Australian and British troops moved into position for the attack on Beersheba. It was hoped that the diversionary attack would encourage the Turks to reinforce their right at expense of their left and make it easier for the XX Corps. Gaza was also bombarded by French and British ships offshore.

The first phase of the assault on Beersheba began early on 31st October. By late afternoon the Allied forces had driven the Turks back into Gaza. At 4.30 pm Brigadier Grant led two cavalry regiments against the eastern defences of the town. Although faced with Turkish machine-guns, the cavalry managed to gallop into Beersheba. The Turks were captured before their plans to destroy the wells and evacuate the town could take place.

The main attack against the Turkish left took place on 6th November. Although the Turkish trenches ran for eight miles all Allied objectives were taken by mid-afternoon. That evening the Turks began to retreat. When XXI arrived on the morning of 7th November, Gaza had been abandoned.

General Allenby's victory at Gaza had unlocked the defences of the Turks. In the weeks that followed, the Turks retreated 75 miles and on 9th December the allied forces took Jerusalem. Although a clear victory, between October and December, 1917, the British and Empire forces lost 19,702 men during the campaign in the Middle East "

Also note it was Septemeber 11th 1922 that the Brists particianed Palestine. And we know it was during these raids in 1917 that the Balfour declaration was made by the British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild) of the Infamous Banking family.

...a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation, a private Zionist organization, on the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire in the aftermath of the World War I. The letter stated the position, agreed at a British Cabinet meeting on October 31, 1917, that the British government supported Zionist plans for a Jewish "national home" in Palestine, with the condition that nothing should be done which might prejudice the rights of existing communities there. The document is kept at the British Library.

Come on put it together people. We know who is pulling the strings.

Foreign Office,
November 2nd, 1917.

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet:

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country".

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely
Arthur James Balfour

This was long Before WWII or any Holocaust...

Remember also it was Nathon Meyers Rothchild who personally bought the bulk of the land in Palestine to create the "Jewish" State after WWII.

Wake up your schools lie to you.

The only thing worse than a Giuliani/Romney ticket would be a Clinton/Obama White House cluster fuck! I think I understand R. Paul's plan, or at least I hope he is thinking like I am! If he had declared independent or Libertarian, he would have received no exposure in the Repub debates. He had to be smart enough to know he could make those robot douchenozzles look stupid...which he did! He also knows that Giuliani is one of the NWO's candidates and that Clinton is the other...since they both have such unclean hands which guarantees their loyalty via the threat of a "leak" about their infinite sliminess. They both have bloody secrets to hide and that's all it takes to be inducted in to the Illuminati hall of shame.

Once Paul has established himself as the clear winner of the debates and is still kicked to the curb regardless in
favor of Rudy the Judas Goat Giuliani, he will declare as the Libertarian or Independent Candidate (hopefully with Cynthia McKinney as his running mate!) and be allowed to continue the Presidential candidate debates with the NWO show ponies, Rudy and Hillary. If he does choose McKinney as his VP, the Demo and Repub VP candidates will get totally creamed in the VP debates too!

Emergency detention plan: 'This way to the camps!'

Published on Thursday, May 31, 2007.

Source: WorldNetDaily

Halliburton's former engineering and construction subsidiary has a contingency contract with the Department of Homeland Security to construct detention facilities in the event of a national emergency, according to WND columnist Jerome Corsi.

As Corsi reported last week, President Bush recently signed a little-reported National Security and Homeland Security Directive granting extraordinary powers to the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight.

Houston-based KBR was awarded an initial $385 million contract in January 2006 for one year, with four one-year options extended into 2007. KBR held a previous emergency detention contract with ICE from 2000 to 2005.

ICE spokeswoman Jamie Zuieback told Corsi the primary intent of the contract was to build temporary detention facilities that could be used in the event of a mass migration crisis, but she confirmed the facilities could be employed in national emergencies, including natural disasters.
"The idea of the KBR contract is to support the Army Corp of Engineers in case we experienced a sudden mass immigration and we had to respond quickly," she said. "We would need immediate detention facilities in the form of temporary housing that would enable us to determine if the large numbers of illegal immigrants were political or economically motivated, or if they were criminals or terrorists."

Corsi reported last week the May 9 directive signed by Bush concentrates an unprecedented amount of emergency authority in the office of the president, specifying the chief executive would have the authority to direct "National Essential Functions" of all federal state, local, territorial and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations in the event of a national emergency.

The directive loosely defines "catastrophic emergency" as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy or government functions."

The KBR contingency contract appears to give ICE the ability to have detention facilities constructed under the president's direction in response to a national emergency as declared under the new directive.

ICE's Zuieback said she was not familiar with the directive, and at her request, Corsi e-mailed her the link to the White House's posting of the directive.

The White House has not responded to a request for comment on the story about the directive.

RE: Cadet Repudiates Cheney at West Point Ceremony

----------------- Bulletin Message -----------------
From: Elsewhere's Daughter
Date: Jun 2, 2007 5:29 AM

I spoke with someone who attended the graduation ceremony at West Point where Dick Cheney gave the commencement speech. Cheney then stood on stage and shook hands with each of the 1000 graduates: wait, make that 999. Because one courageous and principled cadet faced Cheney, looked him up and down, decided not to offer his hand and walked on. Cheney was visibly taken aback, and turned to glare after the parting cadet. (We can only imagine the repercussions that this cadet may now face.)
A West Point cadet is the epitome of honor, duty and respect. That this graduate was willing to show the assembled gathering that he would not deign to honor this dishonorable Vice President with a handshake should have sent tremors of excitement through the crowd. This is probably the first time in six years that anyone has had the temerity and honesty to face down the man whom we could arguably call the Big Evil. Cheney should be getting this treatment from every person he encounters, as should Bush, Gonzales, Rice and the rest of this renegade administration. Of course, these corrupted leaders have insulated themselves from almost any contact with the general public, to the extent of even blocking off the side streets as their armored motorcades (reminiscent of images of dictator governments the world over) take them from home to work. If they were regularly exposed to common Americans they would discover that there are many who would dare to tell them that this emperor has no clothes.

This dovetails beautifully with a recent call by Scott Ritter for Americans to “repudiate” this administration and its policies. Unfortunately, Ritter feels compelled to preface his call with an imperfect and misleading understanding of impeachment efforts, leading him to dismiss the idea and call for repudiation instead. However, repudiation, as explained by Ritter, is more of a concept than a plan for action. How exactly do we go about it and how does it have an effect? The point he misses is that impeachment, a formalized and proscribed Constitutional method to curb executive abuse, is the perfect complement and comrade to whatever “repudiations” that we can muster.

Very few of us will be given such a golden opportunity, as was this cadet to repudiate this administration. But we now need to ask ourselves, what do we have available? How can we take a stand every day in every act we take that says, No More Business as Usual? How can we turn our everyday acts into statements of defiance and patriotic dissent? We need to start to look at the connections behind every transaction or exchange that we make. We need to explain to every clerk who takes our money that we are sliding into early stages of fascism and they need to be worried. We need to figure out how to disrupt business as usual in our own neighborhoods. It is likely that any disruptions of business or blockading streets, flash mobbing town council meetings etc. will inconvenience and even anger some folks who are not directly responsible for the current occupation and erosion of rights. But at this point in the game, that will be a necessary cost of dissent. We need everybody to be angry. If they have to start by being angry at us for bringing this to their attention in an uncomfortable way, so be it. As they see how widespread our discontent is, and they understand how many of us are only going to escalate the disruptions, annoyances and inconveniences, they will start to understand the reasons behind our actions.

The next time that you say to yourself that “this isn’t the time to mention the occupation or constitutional crimes because it’s not the right setting”, know that you are fooling yourself. From today onward, there is no place where loud dissent is inappropriate. We need to make ourselves ungovernable, pure and simple. Let the bravery of one West Point cadet be your inspiration to take this struggle out of your heart and put in on the table front and center wherever you may be.

Democratic leaders like John Conyers are starting to soften their resistance to the calls for impeachment. They are asking us to show them that we really want accountability. We can make daily life so uncomfortable and unpredictable that impeachment will be a welcome balm to smooth the roiling waves. We can’t hold investigations and file articles of impeachment ourselves, but we must show our representatives that we no longer consent to be governed by them as they now operate.

It is time for a Constitutional Restoration. It is up to us to make it happen.

If you have ever suffered excruciating physical pain, or known someone who has, you may view the right to death as not a debate at all. We put (suffering or not) animals to sleep and call it "humane," but when someobody INSISTS he does NOT want to live anymore, and he can't do it himself, who's business is it of anyone's to stop them from their DEATH WISHES? (last of all wishes... the most sacred of all wishes)

You may recall the woman who shot her two sons with Huntington's Disease as she saw them suffer every day, and knew they did not want to live like that. And do you think she did it out of love or hate? If you think it was hate, you need to evolve more, spiritually.

People who insist on prolonging somebody's pain are extremely misguided, in my humble opinion. Kevorkian worked to put people out of their misery, yet is viciously attacked for doing so. If people don't want to live and suffer anymore, then who are these people who think they can force them to suffer, anyway?

May many blessings be upon this brave man, who many of you would want at your side if you were experiencing pain beyond your threshold every minute of each of your days. Yes, even those of you who think you don't like what the man has done.

The Grand Rapids Press

IONIA -- Ten years have not diminished Raymond Voet's feelings about the man the media dubbed "Dr. Death."

"I think it will be very hard for him to stop," said Voet, the former Ionia County prosecutor who brought an ill-fated case against Jack Kevorkian in 1997.

"The man craves attention," Voet said of Kevorkian. "No one normal is that preoccupied with death."

Voet is a district court judge now, happy, he says, to have moved on to life after Kevorkian.

But with Kevorkian's release from prison Friday, it appears the end-of-life issues he raised are anything but dead. Nor is his penchant for publicity.

Kevorkian emerged from state prison in Coldwater at age 79, after serving eight years for second-degree murder. He was accompanied by his attorney and "60 Minutes" correspondent Mike Wallace.

His release drew reactions from Ionia residents, some of whom remember Kevorkian's connection to their city.

"I don't think they should have brought charges against him," said Ionia resident Jennifer Dood, 35, as she sat down to lunch with a couple friends. "I don't think he should have served a day."

In her view, Kevorkian is no criminal. She sees him as a crusader for the right of individuals to decide how they want to end their lives.

"You can't give yourself the dignity of choosing your own passing? It's wrong. It's very wrong."

CBS13) OROVILLE It's one of the busiest banks in town, but Tuesday, a transaction took place that left even police puzzled.

"It's certainly different than things we generally run into," said Lt. John Nickelson, Oroville Police Department.

Police say a 70 year-old Oroville man named Ale Embry went inside a Bank of America and gave the teller a robbery note, only it was a bit confusing.

"The note was not grammatically correct and the teller questioned him about it, so he told her want he wanted," said Lt. Nickelson.

The teller, sensing something odd, told her supervisor who called 911. Embry walked out, and into police custody, which turns out what he wanted all along.

"In fact, he wanted to get arrested. He told us he had some significant health issues, and he thought that was the best way to get them handled," said Brown.

That's right. Police say Embry, who had no prior record, wasn't after any money. With his health in decline and no insurance, he figured he'd be better off in jail. And that's where he sits.

In the meantime, Embry is getting basic healthcare behind bars.

The Butte County Sheriff's did not release the booking photo for Embry.

The corporate takeover of U.S. intelligence

The U.S. government now outsources a vast portion of its spying operations to private firms -- with zero public accountability.

By Tim Shorrock

More than five years into the global "war on terror," spying has become one of the fastest-growing private industries in the United States. The federal government relies more than ever on outsourcing for some of its most sensitive work, though it has kept details about its use of private contractors a closely guarded secret. Intelligence experts, and even the government itself, have warned of a critical lack of oversight for the booming intelligence business.

On May 14, at an industry conference in Colorado sponsored by the Defense Intelligence Agency, the U.S. government revealed for the first time how much of its classified intelligence budget is spent on private contracts: a whopping 70 percent. Based on this year’s estimated budget of at least $48 billion, that would come to at least $34 billion in contracts. The figure was disclosed by Terri Everett, a senior procurement executive in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the agency established by Congress in 2004 to oversee the 16 agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence system. A copy of Everett's unclassified PowerPoint slide presentation, titled "Procuring the Future" and dated May 25, was obtained by Salon. (It has since become available on the DIA's Web site.) "We can't spy ... If we can't buy!" one of the slides proclaims, underscoring the enormous dependence of U.S. intelligence agencies on private sector contracts.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. Yet he continuously gives his Assent to Laws to control, demean and destroy the citizens of this once great country. Essentially taking the law into His own hands believing that He is above it, setting forth policy and procedure which goes against the very foundation which this nation was founded.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He takes away power from the states and makes what should be the states His own to further control and diminish the greatness of this nation. The control of the militia he has taken from the governors and placed under His own command for a start.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. Selfishly for the ‘good’ of himself and his ‘allies’ he puts into policies which do nothing for the people serving only to make the citizenry even less proud of ‘home.’ Failing to be a good neighbor and enter into agreements with foreign countries that would benefit all He goes against the majority driving further the wedge between us and our allies. Look at His policies and stance on the environment (of which there are numerous atrocities), the looming arms race that He seems dead set on putting us into with His selfish bullying ways.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. . There are no doubts to be had about His secret meetings and secret government hell bent on the ruination of this country. The SPP, the NAU just to name a couple.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. Like a coward he makes cabinet posts while Congress is out of session seeking to avoid the conflict and opposition that he knows he will undoubtedly meet. His ‘declaration of war’ against countries without the backing of the Congress, again proving that He feels his above the law.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. One merely need take a look at the State of the Union today and can see that similarly the very same is true today.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. Instead of preventing the ‘population of these States, He seeks to overrun the country with ‘foreigners’ at the risk of further demise of the citizens of this once great nation.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by putting by His Assent of laws that go against the law of the land. Again, showing his belief that he is above the law.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. His Will undoubtedly has been forced onto judges of this land in pursuit of His own agenda and purpose.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. . Need you any proof and fact of this or do you have enough?

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. . Again, the facts should speak loudly enough on their own merit.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power. . Yes we know that martial law looms closely on the horizon for us unless severe and swift action is taken to prevent it.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: . Unauthorized wiretaps for one. And the list goes on and on!

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: . Undoubtedly this must be true – who among us knows how many foreign (NATO, UN and Commercial) troops quarter among us. Which we must also add the paramilitary police forces amassing among us.

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: . Or today, His ‘allies’ whom get caught with the hand in the cookie jar, or other places it should not be – Cheney, Gonzales for starter.

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: . In this day and time more like sending all our trade abroad while the masses in this once great country travel a path closer to demise.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: . Unless you are ultra rich.

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury: . Just five words – Military Commissions Act of 2006

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: . Or bringing those from abroad across the seas for the very same.

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies . IRAQ?

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: . Ah yes, the assaults are far too numerous to list here but they are all about us.

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. . The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. . As we no doubt see daily on a multitude of fronts running the gambit against our freedoms and liberties not to mention our future!

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. . Yes, it can be seen, heard, felt and experienced daily.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. . IRAQ – Blackwater?

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. . Paramilitary Police forces coming to do essentially the same thing.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. . The true Truth Seekers and Patriots who are being made into the domestic terrorists of our own frontiers.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. . And all of our petitions for redress fall on deaf ears of our elected officials whom seem content to ignore the PEOPLE and follow along with the script.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred. to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. . How this circle has widened in just over two hundreds years as His regime seeks to control and impoverish all countries.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor. . What are we waiting for??????

Just a few of my thoughts on the situation.
