Karl Rove Left the Country!

The Raw Story


So far these are the only two sources I can find that is reporting on this news.

After refusing to testify before congress and claiming "executive privilege" (which was later voted down 7-1) Karl Rove decides to suddenly leave the country on a "long planned trip".....ugh yeah right...like that just slipped his (or his lawyers) mind? Bullshit!

Conyers has given him 5 days to comply before taking "all other appropriate recourse"

So is he just buying time before he can create another lie or did he leave for good knowing he has to take his secrets to the grave?

This intrigues me and makes me mad enough to spit!

Марш против роста цен!

                             Станция метро «Горьковская», 3 ноября, сбор с 11- 00


Марш гражданского сопротивления!

Марш против роста цен! Марш пустых кастрюль!

Марш против политических банкротов, опустивших страну по уровню коррупции на 143 место в мире!

Марш против чиновничьего беспредела и милицейского произвола!

Марш за нормальную жизнь для наших стариков, наших родителей!

Марш за наших детей, за их будущее!

Только от нашего гражданского мужества, от нашей сплоченности и солидарности зависит судьба страны. На нас с надеждой смотрит Россия! Думай! Если в пору сбора урожая цены выросли настолько, какими они будут зимой и весной?

Выходи, покажем властям пример гражданского сопротивления, скажем «Нет!» очередному ограблению народа!

                                    Выходи на улицу, будь с Народом!

Марш против роста цен - протестная акция несистемной оппозиции. Благодаря экономической политике руководства страны, стоимость основных продуктов питания возросла за 2007 год на 50-80% по самым скромным оценкам. Мы протестуем против бездействия власти, не способной остановить повышение цен.

Организаторы Марша: Андрей Дмитриев, Сергей Гуляев.

Акция не будет носить предвыборный характер. К участию в мероприятии будут приглашены все оппозиционные организации Санкт-Петербурга при условии отказа от призывов голосовать за партии, допущенные к участию в выборах.

Марш будет носить мирный характер и пройдет строго в рамках закона.
Марш против роста цен санкционировали. Время и место сбора те же. Маршрут следования: м. “Горьковская” – Кронверкский проспект – Кронверкский мост – Заячий остров (Петропавловская крепость).

My candidate for American Of The Year: Mike Stark

Mike Stark is the fucking MAN! This blogger tried to ask some inconvienient questions of his elected representative and gets "tossed to the curb" for his trouble. And it all gets caught on tape.

Youtube search:


Note that in classic neo-Soviet American media management stylee there are two videos of this circulating - one cut one, promoted by most of the media which makes it look as if Stark is some dishevveled wierdo, just walking up to the Senator's entourage and hassling him, and another one promoted by the renegade network MSNBC, which starts with him being shoved around, glass rattling, then he's grabbed by his shirt and shoved some more. then, punch drunk as it were, he asks very mildly why he can't talk to the Senator, bumps into two thugs who are blocking him, (no doubt dizzy from the jostling he's already endured) and then they get really violent...

The full story is on a video linked here: http://www.charlottesvillenewsplex.tv/home/headlines/4545351.html

Can I Interest You In Some Kool-Aid?

Ever wondered where the phrase "to drink the Kool-Aid" comes from?


Warning: This is the most disturbing audiotape you will ever hear. It is quite simply a tape recording of almost a thousand people having a quick Tony Blair-style, rigged "debate" about it, then being murdered.

Notice how somehow everything is the fault of someone else. Also note the victims' own sycophantic applause for their killer. This is because they administered the poison themselves, starting with their own children.

Kill everyone! (clapclapclapclapclap) Let's all commit suicide! (clapclapclapclapclap). One or two people speak up against it, of course, but they are soon put down thanks to that old knock-out combination, clever words and the herd mentality.

They keep talking about being "the advance guard for Socialism" and how it's an act of "revolutionary suicide". The same words, with minor variations, again and again, like talking points or something.

The conspiracy theorists (including some people in the then-Soviet Union) say it was part of a mind-control conspiracy, I don't know about that but it really does prove how easy it is to manipulate people into doing just about anything; it's almost like a dress-rehearsal for this decade, if that doesn't sound too melodramatic. All the ingredients are there; the pretence of a "debate", the instant put-down of any dissent by the very people the dissenters were trying to save, the ubiquitous heavily-armed guards, almost-unanimous support for suicide, even the use of political jargon echoes the "defining ideological struggle of the 21st century".

Eventually all you can hear is music, basically because everyone is dead and the only things still moving are the machines- the music machine and the tape recorder.

Fucking hell!

Consolidation of Power

Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence. – Thomas Jefferson

The consolidation of power in this country has been a forward moving event, Jefferson saw it in his day and it has only accelerated. The death nail in many respects can be seen as the civil war, this marked the end of states rights and the domination of the central government. Further advancement of the consolidation of power occurred following civil war to perhaps the next great usurpation during WWII, and very clearly during the nationalistic furor of the fifties in response to communism. We are now facing a consolidation of power the likes that put all of these others to shame.

While many hold President Bush responsible, he is only one man and not the instrument of power of the people, he is an administrator. Congress is the instrument of the people and has consistently abrogated its responsibilities' to the people of this country. While many of the actions of the President are deplorable, they can only occur with the consent of Congress, either active or passive. As our representation in this government, the actions of Congress are the consent of the people.

Since the events of 9/11 there has been a directed drive to consolidate power. The Orwellian Bureau of Homeland Security, the Patriot Act and the unrestricted capacity of the Executive to tap phones are but examples of this. The Joint Declaration for the Authorization of Force in Iraq, Congress gave one man the power to make the decision, Again we see Congress giving one man the power to make the decision in regards to the application and meaning of the Geneva Convention. The Senate is considering a bill to make the Flag an inviolate national symbol, subtending its meaning to Union and making it a symbol of a government. The Senate was looking at providing additional authority for the President to call upon and make use of the National Guard at his whim.

H.J. Res 26 this is a great proposed amendment to the Constitution, not only will it quadruple the number of elected Representative in congress (plus the cost to the American people) by allowing for the election of three alternate representatives. Now the part I like best: "SECTION 4. Whenever a majority of the elected Alternates of a Representative transmit to the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that such person is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office of Representative, that person's highest-ranked Alternate shall immediately assume the powers and duties of that office as Acting Representative. Thereafter, when the Representative transmits to the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no such inability exists, he shall assume or resume the powers and duties of the office of Representative." Wow, now there is an idea, just throw the elected guy out because you say so, then you can vote in his place and by the time he gets back in place, he can not change a thing. Who the hell are these people and why are we voting for them?

Don't focus your attention of the President, LOOK at Congress these are the people who are suppose to be standing up for you and me. It doesn't look like they are. I am not sure of their specific reasons, but it is clear their loyalties lie somewhere other than with us. Perhaps it is their party, perhaps it is to the government and not its people or perhaps they are just afraid to be responsible for their decisions. Time for a change, time for a new direction, throw them all out and start a new with people who care about what is best for all of us, not the Republicans, not Democrats or not the government.

Nope, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatic’s intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of
80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other dunder-headed attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, get the message .

As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it, "Stupid is as stupid does."

Come on people wake up!!! Keep this going. Pass it on to everyone in your address book. Our Country and our troops need our support.

Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.

Leave the rest to God.

A Poem

I have Gone and Had to Much of It

By Revolutionary “Rev Mac” McNamara

I sat down beside a tree, amidst a beautiful summer day
Resting my eyes and my weary body for a bit
Upon waking I found that I was alone
The country I loved no longer grew
It shriveled and turned in upon itself
A tortured caricature of once had been

I was truly alone
All of those who stood beside me and believed as I did
Long since dead and buried
Their hopes, their dreams and their warnings unremembered
Forgotten in the centuries that have gone by
Left for ashes of a spent fire in the rush forward to a modern society

Deep in the wilderness; in my woods
Where the Laws of Nature are the only ones that hold rule
I stood alone
Looking into the ashes of what was
The fire is not spent
One ember remains, a fragile thing

One ember is all that is needed
To light the torch
For the long walk home
In the gathering darkness and the cold winds of the coming winter
The torch burn bright and hot
Its name is liberty

The darkness is complete
No moon, no stars
The winds are merciless and cut to the bone
Cresting a hill, in the distance the faintest of lights
The hue of which is unmistakable
I must hurry home

one more today: Geneva Convention and Terrorism

Wow, Have you read senate Bill 3930, what a piece of crap! I will admit it is ten times or more likely 100 times better than the Patriot act, it still is one piece of legislation that belongs in the toilet. It allows the Executive the power to interpret the meaning and application of the Geneva Convention. Now understand that they are the ones responsible for carrying it out. Further it gives them what amounts to a retroactive “get out of jail free card”. Nice, sounds like the Government of old King George (the one we rebelled against), read the Declaration of Independence, laws to protect his officials. Well, I sent of a email to my Senators telling that I didn’t like it and not to vote for it, not much chance of that.

Go here http://thomas.loc.gov/ and type in S 3930 in the Search bill text box select bill number read S.3930.IS

For or against it go here: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm and find your senator an let them know!!!
