Americans are asking for Political Asylum...Why don't we hear about it?     

There is no country in the world that understands propaganda more than the United States. Billions are spent at the Pentagon on what you hear and repeat. The mainstream news is a psychotronic parade as the democrats bumble and the reporters comment as though they are on the Bush administration payroll. 

The truth is not reported. The public responds as a story of importance makes breaking news only to see it squashed in the next 72 hours. Americans are asking for political asylum and you are not hearing about it. 

The government is torturing American citizens who are Whistleblowers-  myspace Darren Gelbard, youtube Monarch Katherine Moore, and DIA Topoff to see electronic warfare torturing a U.S. citizen in 2007. Or, for those of you who think these victims are conspiracy theorists, there are the ADS military tests on youtube, 60 Minutes, and CNN. People being hit out of thin air by a ray beam. For real!

Weapons that can harm or kill you from a distance, without leaving marks if the operator so desires, are being used on people in their homes. There are interviews with U.S. citizens who are victims and with a Baghdad surgeon in which he states there are bodies in Iraq he and his team of ten Doctors have seen that are being killed by..."No bullets, no shots..arms cut straight off...we don't know what kind of weapon it is." A Baghdad Orchestra player also stated he saw bodies where..."Only the face was burned, no eyes..and the teeth. The rest of the body was untouched.

The Washington Post released an article called Mind Games in which the victims of psychotronics and V2K described what it was like to have someone mentally and physically torture you using communications and electronic warfare from a distance. And Russia is trying to ban Space weapons after Congress changed the bill that would have banned psychotronics years ago. This is the most dangerous game. Weapons that no individual can defend themselves against. Weapons that manipulate people and that torture and can kill you in your home with no warning from a distance.

i saw this awhile back ago on The Daily Show - it's one of the correspondent skits, which usually are just dumb & fill up time. but this one was actually very good, it involved Paul Hackett - it really shows some of the problems the Democratic Party has had as of late when to comes our electability.
http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/the_daily_show/videos/ed_helms/index.jhtml

on the page the skit is called "Couldn't Hackett" i found it extremely funny & disturbing at the same time. with 2006 elections coming, i think we can learn alot from this skit.

I just heard for myself Rush Limbaugh's $.02 on the captured CPT activists in Iraq. I don't mean to be graphic, but honestly, I threw up a little bit in my mouth. (You can listen yourself here.)

Some highlights:
"part of me likes this."

"Well, here's why I like it. I like any time a bunch of leftist feel-good hand-wringers are shown reality."

"[Y]ou've met the bad guys, and you tried your technique on them, and now you're blindfolded in a room with guns pointed at you and knives at your throat. I don't like that." He then added, "But any time a bunch of people that walk around with the head in the sand practicing a bunch of irresponsible, idiotic theory confront reality, I'm kind of happy about it, because I'm eager for people to see reality, change their minds, if necessary, and have things sized up."

I'm at a complete loss for words. I just ... wow.

Mark Warner for President in 2008 [09 Nov 2005|01:22pm]

ogt4ever
I like to extend my Congradulations to Virgina's new Governor Elect Tim Kaine & present Governor Mark Warner for helping Virginia get back to back Democrat Governor seats for the 1st time in a long time. Helping Kaine win the election is a smidge of the acomplishments of Mark Warner, & while having a 75% aproval rating in a state that is prodimately Republican, he has turned Virgina's 6 Billion Dollars in Dept from when he took office & tured it into a Surplus. He has used a stradegy of appealing to Southern/& Rural Voters - something that would help in the National Election. so for anyone that would like to help me in supporting Mark Warner For President in 2008, if he runs, Vote For Him In The Primaries. - http://www.draftmarkwarner.com/

p.s
I'm not alienating any other Democratic Canadiates for President in 2008, but for those that would like to see Mark Warner run & win, I just want to make sure that they can support him.

Take the image from this site and plaster it on every telephone/light pole in your city. We did it last weekend, most of them were gone in a few days, but we are going to put up 1000 this weekend instead of 600.

Have them wake up the next day to see how many people don't want him around!

Well, yes, there is a kind of shocking distillation of meaning in the catastrophe that hit the city of New Orleans. It's as if the belly of the beast that is the US imperial leviathan has been turned over—its underbelly exposed. There, you can see the reality: two nations, one rich, one poor; one televised, the other invisible—until now.

Abject poverty, criminal infrastructural neglect, opportunistic defunding of minimal preventive planning, disaster relief resources otherwise engaged abroad in protecting the interests of oligarchs, industrial poisons erupting at a mere shrug of nature from their thin disguise just beneath the urban surface of triumphant financial capitalism—a river of murderous toxins running free, running free in the streets of the city of sweetness, the city of food, the city of jazz like a Frankenstein's monster shaking loose his chains and going after its creator:

"Free markets, free markets, free markets," he's calling, laughing madly, "here I am, your creature, your bastard, your long-suppressed experiment in planned anarchy for profit, your pig-ethics child. Your beloved; your nightmare."

Gasoline prices rising.

New Orleans—welcome to Baghdad!

As it shall be abroad, so it will be at home. Poor people ain't got no home, no electricity, no water. No hospitals, no schools, no city. New Orleans, welcome to Fallujah, to Gaza, to Haiti, to El Salvador, to Nicaragua.

Bechtel, Kellogg Root & Brown, Carlyle, Halliburton welcome you to "globalization": the pain is yours; the gain is theirs.

Welcome to a civilization that ridicules science as an entity beneath treason. Welcome to the freedom and democracy of a state that knows no social contract, where you are born with a gun in your hand but no concept of the common good; a state that owes you nothing but owns you body and soul—in the unemployment lines, in the soup kitchens, in the army recruitment centers, in the prisons, on death row, in the schools that teach you nothing, in front of your television screens that lie and string you along with cynical contempt. To your doom, to your doom, for what is freedom without resources?

The courts have evicted you: there is no bankruptcy for you, no socialism for you. Debtor prison is good enough for you. Government handouts, in the form of corporate socialism, are strictly bookmarked for corporations. No one cares about you. Yours is not to reason why; yours is but to pray and die.

Welcome to the Plan for the New American Century. Welcome to the New World Order. Welcome. It stands exposed. Right there in New Orleans.

America, welcome to your planned future as a domestic, internal third world. Welcome to personal and public chronic indebtedness. Welcome to a bloated "defense" budget that cannot assist you, let alone "defend" you from a hurricane in the age of science. Welcome to the offensive budget that makes your country dependent on China for daily loans. Welcome to the multicolored ribbons in support of a war that kills your troops—your children, who are not here, not at home to help with their strength, their youth, their bravery, their idealism in pulling you out of the toxic flood waters.

Welcome. Dr. Frankenstein's monster's vengeance is at our door.

hi. i'm new. i don't really affiliate myself with a particular party; i consider myself an independent. i vote with my conscience for the candidate that cares about the issues important to me. that being said, i am proud to say that i voted for all democrats in the last election, being most proud that i helped elect barack obama with my vote.

one issue that i deeply care about is the stem cell research bill. i believe it should be passed.

so, of course, reading this put some joy in my heart:

even if this is just so that he can gain some moderate votes for his bid for 2008, i'm still kind of proud he went out against bush's stance.

as a former heart-lung transplant surgeon, it's understandable he'd take this stance.

pretty faces with social graces
lead astray, "in god we must trust" misplaces
that same faith, misquoted, intentionally or not.
led on to crimes, and lies, by simply false implying
that duty and death are somehow intertwined
if you dont agree, you are the enemy
and he grows ever stronger by this waste of time

i disagree, I DISAGREE!!!! i think for myself
and why? because i know your god but know you not
and bloody battles follow these degenerate beliefs.
stand idle by as the throngs of those trapped by YOUR self delusion
are sent into the desert to die. why? WHY??
while you sit thoughtless of cost to us youthfull passersby
false emporer, king of nothing, conquerer of your mens deepest fears
with the shallowest of deceit.

"it would be nice" [19 Jun 2005|11:04am]

AP: Terror Expertise Not Priority at FBI



WASHINGTON (AP) - In sworn testimony that contrasts with their promises to the public, the FBI managers who crafted the post-Sept. 11 fight against terrorism say expertise about the Mideast or terrorism was not important in choosing the agents they promoted to top jobs. And they still do not believe such experience is necessary today even as terrorist acts occur across the globe.

``A bombing case is a bombing case,'' said Dale Watson, the FBI's terrorism chief in the two years after Sept. 11, 2001. ``A crime scene in a bank robbery case is the same as a crime scene, you know, across the board.''

The FBI's current terror-fighting chief, Executive Assistant Director Gary Bald, said his first terrorism training came ``on the job'' when he moved to headquarters to oversee anti-terrorism strategy two years ago.

Asked about his grasp of Middle Eastern culture and history, Bald responded: ``I wish that I had it. It would be nice.''


``You need leadership. You don't need subject matter expertise,'' Bald testified in an ongoing FBI employment case. ``It is certainly not what I look for in selecting an official for a position in a counterterrorism position.''


In a development that has escaped public attention, FBI agent Bassem Youssef has questioned under oath many of the FBI's top leaders, including Director Robert Mueller and his predecessor, Louis Freeh, in an effort to show he has passed over for top terrorism jobs despite his expertise. Testimony from his lawsuit was recently sent to Congress.


Those who have held the bureau's top terrorism fighting jobs since Sept. 11 often said in their testimony that they - and many they have promoted since - had no significant terrorism or Middle East experience. Some could not even explain the difference between Sunnis and Shiites, the two primary groups of Muslims.


``Probably the strongest leader I know in counterterrorism has no counterterrorism in his background,'' Bald insisted.


The hundreds of pages of testimony obtained by The Associated Press contrast with assurances Mueller repeatedly has given Congress that he was building a new FBI, from top to bottom, with experts able to stop terrorist attacks before they occurred, not solve them afterward.


``The FBI's shift toward terrorism prevention necessitates the building of a national level expertise and body of knowledge,'' Mueller told Congress a year after the suicide hijackings, as lawmakers approved billions of new dollars to fight terrorism.


Despite the testimony of its managers, the FBI said it has fundamentally reshaped itself to ensure the field agents on the ground who work the cases have the necessary skills, training and background for fighting terrorism. It noted it hired or redeployed more than 1,000 agents to counterterrorism and hired an additional 1,200 intelligence analysts and linguists.


``We fundamentally changed the criteria for hiring special agents and intelligence analysts to ensure that we get the critical skills, knowledge and experience we need to address today's threats,'' Assistant Director Cassandra Chandler told the AP.


``New agents receive personalized training from Muslim leaders. Street agents and managers in every field office have gotten to know the Middle Eastern and Muslim communities in their territories and regularly attend training sessions sponsored by community leaders,'' she said.


Daniel Byman, a national security expert who worked on both congressional and presidential investigations of terrorism and intelligence failures, reviewed the Youssef case for the court. Byman concluded the spurned agent is one of the government's most skilled terrorism fighters and that the FBI overall remains weak in expertise on the Middle East, terrorism and intelligence liaison.


``Many of its officers - including those quite skilled in other aspects of the bureau's work, lack the skills to work with foreign governments or even their U.S. counterparts,'' Byman concluded.


``Knowing about counterterrorism would help a supervisor ensure a proper investigation and avoid missing important aspects of the case,'' he said.


Watson, who oversaw the first two years of transformation, testified he could not recall a single meeting in the aftermath of Sept. 11 in which FBI leaders discussed the type of skills or training needed for counterterrorism.


Youssef's lawyer, Steve Kohn, pressed further.


``What skill sets would they need to better identify, penetrate and/or prevent a future Osama bin Laden-style terrorist attack?'' Kohn asked.


Watson answered: ``They would need to understand the attorney general guidelines for counterterrorism and counterintelligence investigation.''


``Anything else?'' the lawyer inquired.


``No,'' Watson answered.


John Pikus, who held a key supervisory job during the reallocation of agents from traditional crime-fighting to terrorism, testified that the FBI did not create new screening standards to promote terrorism experts to its upper ranks.


``Strengthening up the criteria for selection,'' Pikus answered when asked where the FBI was deficient in its terrorism hiring.


Pat D'Amuro, one of the FBI's most experienced senior managers in terrorism, testified that when he was brought to Washington to oversee the Sept. 11 investigation. Eventually promoted to executive assistant director, he brought lots of agents with him from New York who had terrorism backgrounds.


But rather than a systematic search for the bureau's most talented Middle Eastern and terrorism agents worldwide, D'Amuro testified he brought to Washington the agents he personally knew had worked successfully on al-Qaida and other terrorism cases.


He said that in later promotions, Middle East and terrorism experience was helpful but not mandatory, noting the FBI also must deal with terrorism from domestic sources and the Irish Republican Army.


``It could be a benefit. When you look for managers, you're looking for people that can lead people, manage people, knows how to conduct an investigation, knows how to collect certain intelligence or information, you know,'' he testified.


When asked if he had any formal terrorism training that justified his appointment as the No. 3 FBI official, Bald said, ``It would have been on-the-job in the counterterrorism division.'' Bald entered the counterterrorism division in 2003 after leading the FBI's Baltimore office during the Washington sniper case.


The assistant Bald brought in to run the division last year gave a similar account.


``It's a tremendous learning experience, the seat that I'm sitting in. You learn every single day about this,'' Deputy Assistant Director John Lewis testified.


When asked whether he, as the FBI's former counterterrorism chief, could describe the differences between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, Watson answered, ``Not technically, no.''


He also said that his assertion a few years ago that bin Laden had been killed - a declaration that conflicted with CIA assessments and fresh video evidence - was not based on fact. ``It's my gut instinct,'' he answered.


Youssef, the agent suing the bureau, was credited with improving relations with Saudi Arabia during the late 1990s as bin Laden's threat grew and the bureau struggled to solve the case of the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing.


He received a special award from the intelligence community for meritorious work and was singled out by his managers for ``continuous creativity and perseverance'' in terrorism cases. Saudi officials said they regarded Youssef as the most skilled U.S. agent in conducting lie detector tests on Arabic-speaking suspects.


But after Sept. 11, Youssef repeatedly was passed over for top level headquarters jobs in terrorism. Instead, he was offered same-rank positions in budgeting or exploiting intelligence from terrorism documents.


Freeh, the former FBI director who left that job three months before the terrorist attacks, testified that he believed Youssef should have gotten an important terror-fighting job in the post-Sept. 11 era


``I think, you know, given his experience, certainly his language, you know, domestically he would probably have a much more required role and be of greater help back at headquarters,'' Freeh said.


One FBI supervisor, just-retired Agent Paul Vick, testified that Youssef had the ``many skills that were badly needed'' after Sept. 11 and the FBI's failure to utilize him was ``inappropriate and a waste of a very important human resource.''

Get excited for the Norwood Amendment. Because, you know, I totally want to give local law enforcement the right to deport illegal aliens. I'm, of course, ignoring the fact that this must go by a federal process, but the entire point is to shift the responsibility from the feds to the locals while simultaneously failing to fund them. If I'm correct, it passed House (91% of Republicans supporting, 63% of Democrats opposing). The gentleman from Georgia of course dropped 9/11 as a red flag, implying that if anyone were to vote against the amendment that keeps out these terrorist illegal alien brown people, we didn't care about 9/11, and why do we hate freedom?
I really like Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, though.

... Anybody out there?

1.) Tony Blair's third term! Alright, alright.

2.) Just did a paper on the topic: "Who has/had the better case, the Israelis or the Palestinians?" It was tough to write, but I actually ended up supporting the Palestinians--even though as I said I feel I have as an American been trained to say, "Of course the Israelis."

3.) If I hear one more 13 year old say "OMG TEH POPEZ A NAZI" I'm going to scream.

4.) Vladmir Putin met with President Moshe Katzav and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon about the selling of missiles to Syria by Russia. Putin sais that the selling wasn't dangerous, but also that "Iran's nuclear programme must be peaceful and internationally monitored." (from here)

In other news, I feel that I have in some ways fallen out of touch with the world and it's a bit unsettling.
