BIDEN: “First of all, we’re no where near there. We have 8 days to go. This is the most important election in the public’s life. They are looking at these races very closely. I think this is going to be much closer than everyone thinks it is. Second, with regard to the Democratic Party, this is a new Democratic Party not the party of the 70s and 80s. This is a party that has adjusted to the realities of a new world order.” He went on to say, “I think there is going to be a collaborative effort to make the 21st century an American century.”

And the Transformation of America for Jewish Apartheid:
Not every wrong, or even every violation of the law, is a crime.” Michael Mukasey, US Attorney General saying former justice Department staffers won’t be criminally prosecuted for politicizing hiring practices.
In the last forty years the boundaries between government and corporation have been slowly eroding. However, in the last eight years and during the reign George W. Bush, the process has accelerated tenfold and was taken into new levels that have never been seen in the history of this nation.
In addition, this administration has successfully and systematically dismantled the bill of rights, our civil liberties, as well as our financial, personal and national sovereignty.
While George W. Bush was talking about the US as a unilateral superpower, he was behind the scenes dismantling this superpower and rendering it into a broke, weak and ailing tiger that will be forced to join the new world order instead of being the world order.
Lawlessness in government has become the rule of the land. Loyalty to the party superseded the loyalty to the country, which is a déjà vu phenomenon in the archives of fascism. The stench of our political sewage system has contaminated our nation and the world. Mendacity became truth, and manipulation became intelligence and virtue.
Macchiavellian politics has reached new height of deception, corruption, and propaganda. Our supreme court became politicized with unscrupulous appointees who were co-opted to implement the new laws for the new world order. Our intelligence agencies have been methodically politicized and corrupted for many years to a point of no return.

It's about money, about greed, and about power.
The idea is not new. Throughout recorded history conquerors have flashed across the scene sword in hand and held dominion over the known world of their time. Sometimes the empires they created died with them. Sometimes they lingered on.
The aim is still the same, but the means of attaining it has changed. If there ever has been a moment to question what is happening in the world, and to the world, it is at this moment.
The freedom of the Press, once a guarantee of a healthy society, no longer exists. Nor does its honesty.
The control of the media and economy world-wide has slipped into the hands of a few conglomerates, who dictate policy, advocate inroads into the central structure of society, the family unit, and attack any belief that holds a people, a race, together in a unity of culture and tradition. Like some parasitical growth they work from within.
America is now virtually a one-party state, controlled by a small group that stands in the shadows pulling the strings, manoeuvring Presidents as the occasion demands, A group driven by one thing only, the desire for money and power.
For two hundred years warnings have been issued that such a situation could come about.
To quote Thomas Jefferson:
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks ...will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..."
To quote Abraham Lincoln:
"The Government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credits... By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity."
These words and his monetary policies after the civil war probably cost him his life.
Read the rest of this excellent article here.
In a famous footnote on page 13 of my edition, he writes: “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive . . . . Or if, during periods of mass arrests . . . people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door . . . and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .
“If . . . if . . . We didn’t love freedom enough. . . . We submitted with pleasure! . . . We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” Solzhenitsyn says “resistance should have begun right there, at the moment of the arrest itself. But it did not begin.” Of course, he is talking about Russia. Here the same thing would have a different style. For instance, in the Soviet Union you were simply arrested. Here, if you ask one of the super patriot zombies whether you are being arrested, he will say you are not, but you must go along to the camp.
So what will you do? Will you simply give up your stash and get on the bus? Right now you probably don’t know yourself. You may not know until it happens. But we do know they are coming. We do know who the enemy is. The enemy – and I mean this literally, not metaphorically – are for instance the national Communist media.
People like Katie Kook and Chris Matthews and Bill Maher, outfits like the Communist News Network (CNN) and the Communist Broadcasting System (CBS) are just as much enemies as Wehrmacht Panzer units invading our country in uniform would have been in 1943. They are not confused. They know what they are doing. They will not stop until they destroy you. And they are accessible. You don’t need me to tell you what to do with such an enemy.
The enemy is Helicopter Ben Bernanke, Ponzi Paulson, Madam Peelousy, Butt jumper Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, the bottom slice of Ted Kennedy’s “waitress sandwich.” And on and on. The Red professors. All the people who routinely spit in your face; the people who don’t care how you vote, for whom the vote is a mere charade; the people who have destroyed your job and intend to dissolve your country.
They have gotten away with it, so far, because you have not yet made them sufficiently afraid when they set foot in your neighborhoods. The soles inside their Guccis don’t yet tingle nervously when they set foot on the tarmac. The ones who are elected must return to the districts once in a while to maintain the pretense that they represent you, but they don’t yet wonder whether they will return to Washington alive.
What el presidente Jorge W. Boosh would call “el momento de verdad” is coming soon. Look at the Executive Orders. Then read Solzhenitsyn.

The color of money. Senator Barack Obama's campaign has now raised more than $600 million, almost equaling what all the candidates from both major parties collected in private donations in 2004.
Where do you think that awful lot of money comes from?
Endorsements, or the big orgy? "Many of these large donors come from industries with interests in Washington. A New York Times analysis of donors who wrote checks of $25,000 or more to the candidates' main joint fund-raising committees found, for example, the biggest portion of money for both candidates came from the securities and investments industry, including executives at various firms embroiled in the recent financial crisis like Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and AIG. (...) More than 600 donors contributed $25,000 or more to [Obama] in September alone, roughly three times the number who did the same for Senator John McCain."
The (ex)change we can believe in. Colin Powell, one of the major war criminals with the blood of millions of innocent people on his hands, has endorsed Barack Obama who, in exchange, has endorsed war criminal Powell: Obama told NBC television Monday that Powell was welcome to campaign for him and might have a place in his administration. He said Powell "will have a role as one of my advisers" and that a formal role in his government was "something we'd have to discuss."
All the President's Men. Among Barrack Obama's godfathers there are: Warren Buffett, the world's richest man, George Soros (the multibillionaire Good Samaritan affiliated with the Council on Foreign Relations, International Crisis Group, Human Rights Watch, etc.), the diabolical Zbigniew Brzezinski, and the notorious media mogul Rupert Murdock with his nefarious empire. The list goes on and on.
No doubt there will be advantages to have a liberal emperor. Alan Dershowitz explains: "The reason is because I think it is better for Israel to have a liberal supporter in the White House than to have a conservative supporter in the oval office. Obama's views on Israel will have greater impact on young people, on Europe, on the media and on others who tend to identify with the liberal perspective. Although I believe that centrists liberals in general tend to support Israel, I acknowledge that support from the left seems to be weakening as support from the right strengthens. The election of Barack Obama -- a liberal supporter of Israel -- will enhance Israel's position among wavering liberals. As I travel around university campuses both in the United States and abroad, I see radical academics trying to present Israel as the darling of the right and anathema to the left. As a liberal supporter of Israel, I try to combat that false image. Nothing could help more in this important effort to shore up liberal support for Israel than the election of a liberal president who strongly supports Israel and who is admired by liberals throughout the world. That is among the important reasons why I support Barack Obama for president."
Dershowitz is absolutely right of course. Not to mention Mr. Vice-President Joseph "I am a Zionist" Biden, the man in charge of the implementation of an old Zionist dream, the partition of Iraq and one of Obama's top foreign policy advisers, Madeleine Bloody Albright, the modern Herod who proudly claimed the responsibility for the massacre of half a million Iraqi innocent babies.
Empires don't elect presidents, they select emperors. The Empire's Establishment picked up an unknown politician and made of him a star to save itself and control the masses with the American Democracy Show. Casting a handsome, charming black man [Yes! the Establishment played the race card. Remember? Everything has to change so that nothing changes.] to cover the ugly face of a bloody, ruthless Empire, the ruling class plans to rebuild the illusion of a respectable civilization, the stars and stripes mythology, the American way. The media - owned by those who control the political process, the same people who control the economy and our lives - played marvelously the game and another Hollywood movie is brainwashing the four corners of the planet.
Killing hopes. A self-complacent politburo with its well-funded progressive think tanks and publications has once again participated in this colossal work of whitewashing and propaganda. The King is dead. Long live the King! No surprise of course. Yugoslavia, Iraq and Afghanistan have shown the intellectual and moral collapse of the Western Left, a phantom that continues its long march toward irrelevance.
P.S. There never has been a better time to vote for a third party [non-zionist] candidate than now.

What will our mind-control gate keepers do if the desire for 9/11 truth becomes hip? There's something righteous, and catchy, about the truth.
Paul Pelosi, Nancy’s husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock. In January 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition’s. Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an economic development credit in American Samoa.
Pelosi says …Republicans are corrupt. She should know.

Trust us, we'll treat you better than we've treated Iraqi civilians. We've gained a lot of practice there. We'll fight them here, so you don't have to.... Wait! Wasn't it "we're fighting them over there, so we don't have to fight them here?" Uhm, how about "we'll fight them here so your National Guard units can fight them over there"?
The earth shaking confession of 91 year old Morton Sobell that he and Julius Rosenberg were indeed spies and not victims of a politically motivated prosecution of idealistic Communist sympathizers affords Americans a golden opportunity to diagnose and treat a chronic national ill, the Talmudic Law of the Moser. Moser is Hebrew for informer, and this law prohibits a Jew from informing on another Jew to a non-Jew directly or indirectly. This was the dynamic steering captured members of their spy ring.
Rosenberg himself gives us a very good example. Two weeks before his and his wife’s 19 June 1953 execution, US Attorney General Herbert Brownell sent Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons David Bennett to persuade Rosenberg to cooperate with the government in its investigation of the spy ring. Acceptance of such offer would have been good grounds for clemency, but Rosenberg rejected this.
In his 5 June letter to his lawyer Emanuel H. Bloch about his meeting with Bennett, “Julie” wrote: “In so many words he said only if I become an informer, do and say things that satisfy the officials in Washington, then they will let us live.” By “they” he meant the “goyim” in Washington. And being an “informer” (moser) is anathema to a Talmud Jew. Rosenberg preferred death to being an informer, which would have subjected him and his family to shunning by the Jewish community, despoliation and even non-judicial execution.
The Talmudic Law of the Moser is like the Mafioso Code of Omertà. It is the foundation for a conspiracy of silence. As such, this law is diametrically opposed to the adversarial process of our legal system. It frustrates a true discovery process. It violates the concept of equality under the law and establishes a subtle, two tiered system for Jews and non-Jews. And the Law of the Moser prevents or inhibits frank exchange of information within our intelligence and law enforcement communities.
Above all else, this law can determine which news is “fit to print”! The test for truth has become, is it good for Israel?
Everybody knows American history is terminally under revisionist deconstruction. The JFK assassination, the USS Liberty incident and 9/11 confront us with significant prevarications, distortions and omissions in the official reports. To what extent does the Talmudic Law of the Moser explain this phenomenon? How does it work to keep us jamming the square peg of Zionism into the round hole of Palestine? How does this law conduce to manipulating the minds of Americans with propaganda? Before we set boundaries over there, we must first draw the line over here as to what is acceptable and what is not. We ignore the Talmudic Law of the Moser and its pernicious effects at our national peril.

Malachi Ritscher, the antiwar protestor who paid the ultimate price; whom the mainstream media doesn't want you to know about... nor kosher organized antiwar organizations.
An antiwar protestor, not calling out the war mongers [THE ZIONISTS] is like a smoker protesting lung cancer.

The following is a statement from journalists Adrian Salbuchi, Enrique Romero and Juan Gabriel Labaké concerning the suit:
We fight those who wish to silence all public debate on Zionism, a key political issue for Argentina and of global consequence.
Why we sued the Delegation of Israeli Associations in Argentina (DAIA):
Adrian Salbuchi, Juan Gabriel Labaké and Enrique Romero filed a criminal lawsuit alleging calumny and slander against the top officers of the DAIA, in respect to the contents of their “Report on Anti-Semitism in Argentina - 2006” prepared by the Centro de Estudios Sociales ( Social Studies Center), belonging to the DAIA. Our lawsuit was filed with District Court No. 13, Secretariat No. 80 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, provisionally presided over by the Honorable Judge Dr. Raúl Juan García.
In their report, the undersigned are insulted and slandered by the above, as they accuse us of “virulent anti-Semitism” because of our global and national geopolitical analyses published as press communiqués of our group, MSRA and as reports in the “El Traductor Gráfico” bulletin. “Anti-Semitism” constitutes a crime of discrimination under the Argentine Discrimination Act, Law No 23.592 (i.e., Art. 3º defines “discrimination against persons or groups on account of their religious beliefs”).
Adding insult to injury, the CES gave their report ample local and international publicity through diverse channels and the media, also translating it fully into English, and authorizing its publication on the Internet by the powerful U.S.-based Zionist organization, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a militant Zionist organization founded and operated by the Jewish Masonic lodge B’nai B’rith, whose top officers recently met with Argentine President Cristina Kirchner and Foreign Secretary Jorge Taiana in Buenos Aires and told them to be more outspoken against so-called “anti-Semitism” in Argentina. In addition, the “Reports on Anti-Semitism” issued every year by the CES/DAIA are used as an official source of information on our country by the U.S. State Department. All of this and other actions on their part have caused the plaintiffs severe moral, professional and economic damage and injury.
As we explain in our lawsuit against DAIA and CES officers, our analyses and criticisms are aimed solely at the official policies of Israel and Zionism as a political ideology that supports, promotes, and defends the interests of that foreign power throughout the world. We solely focus on highlighting the grossly inhuman nature of those policies that breach basic human rights, their expansionist plans in the Middle East and their illegitimate interference in the internal affairs and policies of the Argentine state. All of this forms part of our work and efforts (as politicians, journalists and international social analysts), to promote greater public awareness in Argentina of the concrete risks that our country runs, if we allow the United States, Israel and Zionist lobbies and pressure groups to move forward with what increasingly appears to be a well-orchestrated campaign over the Argentine Republic, its territory, foreign policy, natural resources, national unity and social peace.
The undue pressure… exerted by Zionist organizations over global and domestic public opinion tends to misinform and distort reality in these key issues, which also puts at risk the very welfare and physical integrity of Argentina’s large Jewish community that for the most part wishes to live in peace and harmony, as it always has, by unjustly tarnishing them with the violence emanating from and promoted by the terrorist (entity) of Israel and its unconditional ally in the Middle East, the United States of America.
We stress that using their enormous financial, media, diplomatic and political resources at their service, internationally and domestically, these and other Zionist organizations, lobbies and other (directly or indirectly) pro-Zionist entities attempt to silence any criticism and balanced analyses of these fundamental political issues. Zionist activities in different parts of the world today threaten to drag all of mankind towards new and increasingly violent wars in the Middle East and elsewhere. Not satisfied with having unleashed genocidal destruction upon the nations of Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan, they now target (the) next victims for unilateral military aggression… and they clearly also have in mind the so-called Triple Border Areas (where the Argentine, Paraguayan and Brazilian borders meet), and where not surprisingly huge fresh water resources lie (attacking this region was already announced in September 2001 by former top Pentagon Zionist government officer Douglas Feith, tacitly supported by his bosses Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush).
In presenting our lawsuit, we asked the Court, amongst other things, to not only sentence the accused regarding the calumnies and slander perpetrated against us but, more importantly, to clearly define that criticism against the official policies of the United States and Israel, and the ideological premises of Zionism in no way constitute acts of “anti-Semitism” or “anti-Judaism”, nor crimes of discrimination of any sort whatsoever. We also ask that the Court clearly establish as legal precedent the conceptual differences that clearly exist between the terms “Anti-Semitism”, “Anti-Zionism” and “Anti-Judaism”.
We further point out that the ways in which every manner of distortion is unleashed upon this complex subject regarding these and other relevant terms nowadays constitute clear examples of psychological warfare, often assuming the marks of veritable intellectual terrorism, in that those who perpetrate them try to silence all manner of serious, balanced and fair public debate on such fundamental political matters.
In short, to any person of goodwill, as well as for all dictionaries of Western languages, we have that:
Judaism is a millenarian religion. The Jewish ethnic group is a millenarian social group dispersed amongst many countries of the world, whose members have specific cultural, social and religious characteristics, but who nevertheless differ -- often very acutely -- in their ideological and political stances and opinions. Zionism is a nationalist and fundamentalist political ideology founded in the late 19th century that today has grown and integrated into a very powerful global network of pressure groups, lobbies and organizations of different kinds, totally aligned with the interests and objectives of Israel. Amongst the main organizations forming part of this global network, we find: AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), the American Jewish Congress, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), the AJC (American Jewish Committee), the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) (all based in the United States); the World Jewish Congress, World Jewish Committee, World Zionist Organization, Jewish Agency, and B’nai B’rith (all of which are multinational entities); and the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina), DAIA (Delegación de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas) and OSA (Organización Sionista Argentina) (all based in Argentina). Israel is a national political entity created in 1948, established in a specific geographic location.
Naturally, all our analyses and critiques -- which are consistent, balanced, well-documented and referenced -- are centered on the latter two.
P.S. Hush!!! In America we don't mention zionism.
Also missing are a number of Jews who have played minor roles, but merit mention for the interest they have attracted - in particular, Sandra Froman, the first Jewish president of the National Rifle Association (2005-7), and a steering committee member of Sportsmen for McCain; and Linda Lingle, the first Jewish governor of Hawaii and an early defender of Sarah Palin.
It should be noted that perhaps the most significant name that appears on the list belongs to a man, Henry Lehman, who has been dead for 153 years, and has thus remained uncounted among the living.
Following is the list, in alphabetical order:
Sheldon Adelson: He is Republican, neoconservative and a mega-donor, however, a combination of financial reverses and internal disputes has muted his contribution to the McCain effort.
David Axelrod: Chief strategist and media advisor for the Obama campaign, he has harnessed grassroots support through "viral" media, new technology and emphasis on the theme of change.
Steven Bob and Sam Gordon: The two Reform rabbis from the Chicago area founded Rabbis for Obama, which has persuaded hundreds of rabbinical colleagues to go on record by name supporting the candidate. The group's influence on the Jewish electorate has been difficult to gauge.
Matt Brooks: The executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition is a frequent media "first responder" on Jewish issues.
Mark Broxmeyer: A businessman and chair of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs conservative think tank, Broxmeyer serves as national chairman of the McCain campaign's Jewish Advisory Coalition and as a member of the candidate's national finance committee.
Eric Cantor: This Virginia congressman, the sole Jewish Republican in the House, has emerged as a primary McCain surrogate in a bid to sway Florida and his home state.
Laurie David: The global-warming activist and producer of "An Inconvenient Truth," starring Al Gore, she is ex-wife of "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" creator Larry David and one of Jewish Hollywood's most prodigious fundraisers.
Ira Forman: The executive director of the National Jewish Democratic Council, he is Matt Brooks' counterpart.
Barney Frank: The Massachusetts Democratic congressman is one of the most visible, outspoken liberals in the House. He is openly gay and a frequent target of pro-McCain commentators, particularly on Fox News, where, because of his role as chair of the House Financial Services Committee, he has been said to bear crucial responsibility for the sub-prime lending crisis. He played a key role in negotiating the Wall Street bailout package.
Malcolm Hoenlein: Formally nonpartisan as professional chief of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, he invited Sarah Palin to speak at an anti-Ahmadinejad rally at the UN, then bowed to pressure to rescind the invitation. He is seen to have aided the McCain campaign in terms of some Jewish undecideds.
Cheryl Jacobs: A McCain campaign co-chair in Broward County, Florida, the Conservative rabbi, a longtime Democrat, supported Hillary Clinton's primary race for president, but then switched to McCain.
Henry Kissinger: The New York Times calls the former secretary of state a "close outside adviser" to McCain's campaign. He is regularly called upon by the candidate for advice on foreign affairs, and held a high-profile briefing session with Palin prior to the vice-presidential debate.
Ed Koch: The former New York City mayor is still a gold standard for Jews of a certain age. He backed Bush in 2004 and Hillary Clinton during the primaries. Now he's for Obama.
William Kristol: As editor of Rupert Murdoch's Weekly Standard magazine, a New York Times columnist and a Fox News commentator, he is an extremely influential neoconservative voice.
Sherry Lansing: The first woman to head a major Hollywood studio (Paramount), she is a major Democratic donor and fundraiser.
Ed Lasky: Through the American Thinker Web site, his articles helped spawn the widespread Internet campaign alleging that Obama is anti-Israel.
Henry Lehman: A Bavarian immigrant who settled in Alabama in 1844 at age 23, and founded H. Lehman, a general store that, by accepting raw cotton in lieu of cash, would later lead to commodity trading in cotton. In 1850, he and his brothers Emanuel and Mayer formed Lehman Brothers, which became one of the first and most powerful investment houses on Wall Street. Lehman Brothers' spectacular collapse in mid-September, the largest bankruptcy in American history, triggered a worldwide financial panic that, more than any single factor, may determine the outcome of the 2008 presidential election.
Joe Lieberman: The Connecticut senator was Al Gore's 2000 Democratic running mate. He is now McCain's point man for undecided Jewish voters.
Mik Moore and Ari Wallach: Launched Jewsvote. org, utilizing high-tech methods to counteract Web-borne attacks on Obama. The group also sponsors The Great Schlep - a campaign to get grandchildren to visit grandparents in Florida, to persuade them to vote for Obama.
Eli Pariser: He heads MoveOn. org, a liberal on-line advocacy group that has raised large sums for Democratic candidates.
Martin Peretz: The editor of The New Republic, he wrote an influential article entitled "Can friends of Israel - and Jews - trust Obama? In a word, Yes."
Dennis Prager: He is an influential, outspoken and often strident nationally syndicated radio talk-show host. Despite reservations over McCain's campaign reform bill, he has thrown his weight behind the GOP ticket.
Penny Pritzker: She is the national finance chair of the Obama campaign. A billionaire executive, pioneer Obama supporter and scion of a well-known Jewish mega-donor family, she has taken flak over the degree of her involvement in a the failure of a bank driven by sub-prime mortgages.
Ed Rendell: The governor of the key swing state of Pennsylvania, he is former head of the Democratic National Committee and a top Democratic campaign spokesman.
Denise Rich: The socialite and ex-wife of disgraced billionaire Marc Rich is a Democratic megafundraiser.
Dennis Ross and Dan Kurtzer: They are the center-right and center-left anchors of Obama's Middle East advisory staff.
Robert Rubin: The top Obama economics advisor has unsurpassed knowledge of the workings of Wall Street and was treasury secretary in the Clinton administration.
Dan Shapiro: A former Clinton administration National Security Council official, he is a senior Mideast policy advisor and Jewish outreach coordinator for the Obama campaign. He is said to have co-written Obama's speech before AIPAC (the pro-Israel lobby), in which the candidate declared "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided" - a statement Obama later partially recanted.
Sarah Silverman: A "shock comedian," she served as video spokeswoman for The Great Schlep (see Mik Moore, above). Her monologue spawned a counter-clip from veteran comic Jackie Mason.
Alan Solow: The Chicago lawyer is active in the Jewish community and in the Conference of Presidents. He has been an Obama supporter for a dozen years.
Jon Stewart: As host of the satirical TV news program "The Daily Show," he has become perhaps the most listened-to liberal voice in the nation. The New York Times called Stewart's program "a genuine cultural and political force."
Barbra Streisand: The superstar singer is a Jewish-liberal icon and mega-fundraiser. She endorsed Hillary Clinton in the primary race and has backed Obama since the Democratic convention. She also headlined a Hollywood fundraiser in September, which included a $25,800-a-plate dinner.
Robert Wexler: A key Obama surrogate, the Florida congressman has campaigned extensively in the effort to shift the electoral vote-rich Sunshine State from the McCain column to the Democrats.
Fred Zeidman: McCain's lead Jewish strategist, he is chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, and a heavyweight among Jewish Republicans.
P.S. Hush!!! It's considered anti-semitic to notice Jewish influence.... I see nothing here.

After the coming economic financial collapse, a state of world-wide martial law will be declared. Considering the current events which are in direct alignment with documented plans for totalitarian one-world government, (white paper plans published by the Tri-Lateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and Club of Rome), martial law will be imposed without official dissent upon the various countries of the world. Martial law is military rule imposed upon civilian populations in a time of war or during a (sic) "State of Emergency". The following elements can be expected to occur once the t.v. news anchors tell people not to panic, but that a State of Emergency has been declared due to the crash, and a (sic) temporary state of martial law has been declared, which will be rescinded once the State of Emergency has passed.
What the news people won't tell you is that given the history of martial law, the suspension of such a draconian state is far more difficult to achieve than its original imposition. Esteemed reader, ask yourself the question, why dictator or group of dictators ever voluntarily relinquished their dictatorial powers? I'm searching really hard through the history files of the world to find out the handful of amazing people who did so. So far, all I can find is George Washington who declined being elected "King".
Whenever the "Powers That Be" decide to impose martial law, the following items can be expected:
1. CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ARE ENDED-Under martial law, the U.S. Constitution is suspended and the citizens immediately lose all the protections, safeguards, and human rights guaranteed by that document. The citizens also lose every rights and privileges granted under The Bill of Rights. The constitutions of other countries will likewise be suspended with similar conditions imposed upon the citizens of those other countries.
2. CURFEW ENFORCEMENT-Anyone caught outside after curfew can be shot dead. There are no exceptions for personal emergencies unless of course, these people have some sort of official written permission or are in possession of other material which gives them a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card.
3. WRIT OF HABEUS CORPUS SUSPENDED-This means that soldiers can bust into your house, or arrest you on the street without warrants, and can throw you into prison without explanation or access to legal counsel. They can hold you there for months, even years, since there are no time limits imposed on how long you can be imprisoned.
4. PERSONAL FIREARMS WILL BE SEIZED-Armed forces can invade your home and force you to surrender any weapons you have, regardless of your constitutional right or need to bear arms for your self-defense. If you refuse, you could be shot dead in your living room, and all your possessions seized. If you're lucky, you might just get Tasered, or butt-ended with an AK-47, to eventually wake up in a Federal Emergency Management Agency (F.E.M.A.) Detention Center with a Prison Identification Number which you will go by as a "name" instead of your old name, the one on your birth certificate.
5. PERSONAL PROPERTY CAN BE SEIZED-This means that under the excuse of "requisitioning", soldiers can kick you out of your home, and seize both your home, all the contents inside that home, as well as any vehicles, or other items you have on your grounds. They also can claim the actual real estate of the acreage as well. If you refuse or resist in some way well....I guess you can fill in the blanks or use your imagination.
The following list of Executive Orders have already been signed by past U.S. presidents are in effect immediately upon declaration of a national State of Emergency or Martial Law:
Executive Order 10995: All communications media will be taken over by federal authority: radio, television, websites, newspapers, even CB and Ham radio systems. Freedom of expression, otherwise known as the First Amendment will be canceled until further notice.
Executive Order 10997: All fossil fuels, related substances as well as all electrical power, both corporate as well as privately owned devices and generators will be seized by the federal government.
Executive Order 10998: All food, means to produce such food and related products and machinery, warehouses and collectives which obviously include corporate and private farms will be seized by the government. You will not be allowed to hoard food since this is regulated. If you are caught hoarding food, you could be shot dead, or perhaps you will be lucky enough to be Tasered, knocked to the ground, sent to a FEMA camp and be immediately classified as a "domestic terrorist", otherwise known as an "Enemy of the State".
Executive Order 10999: All modes of transportation will be placed under complete government control. Any vehicle can be seized.
Executive Order 11000: All civilians will be drafted into forced labor which the t.v. anchors will euphemistically call "volunteer labor" at a variety of designated work places or camps under federal supervision. Go watch old film reels of the slave labor images under Nazi prison camps, or if you prefer, go watch a copy of Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman, to get a more modern updated "American flavor" of what it's like to be part of a slave labor chain gang. Of course, you must always remember, that if you go against the Boss, you will be accused of "A Failure To Communicate."
Executive Order 11490: Absolute dictatorial "presidential" control will be exercised over all US citizens, business as well as church institutions during a State of Emergency where martial law is declared necessary.
Executive Order 12919: At the direction of the president, this Executive Order allows various Cabinet officials to take over all aspects of the US economy during a State of National Emergency.
Executive Order 13010: This Executive Order allows FEMA to take control over all other government agencies.
Executive Order 12656: "ASSIGNMENT OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS RESPONSIBILITIES" -This order allows for the declaration of a State of Emergency during natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other emergencies that seriously threaten the national security of the United States. This order allows for total, unquestioned federal takeover of every local police enforcement agencies, as well as local price fixing and wages. It also forbids reassignment of personal financial assets within or outside of the United States.
Therefore, the fact that America’s banks are dropping like flies with seemingly no warning ahead of time means the chance of it all being an accident is as likely as Elvis Presley popping up and announcing to the world that he did not die but rather was kidnapped by space aliens and taken away for the last 3+ decades. Whether it is in the interest of getting even with America for not ceding to Israel’s demand for war against Iran and Russia or whether it is to put the heat on the world to get the music started is irrelevant at this point. It is an act of war, or at the very least an act of coercion in putting the screws to those principally-Christian nations of the West drafted as foot soldiers in the wars to expand the Israeli empire against the Islamic world, a war known in some circles as ‘The New World Order’.
The truth though is that none should be particularly surprised that these nice Jewish folks would do such a thing. As the rest of the world is reminded on a regular basis, they are (spiritually speaking) the descendents of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and others who are legends and role models in the Jewish community and whose exploits are held high as the standard which all tribe members are expected to imitate. One need look no further than the present economic misery being deliberately wrought against the Palestinians and the accompanying glee with which this misery is celebrated by Israel and her supporters throughout the world for proof that there is a sadism that permeates throughout the whole process of robbing people. There is not a recorded instance of IDF soldiers occupying a Palestinian home where money, jewelry and other items of value were not robbed from the owners.
More important than recent history though is the past, something which the non-Jewish world forgets to its own detriment. Recount that in the Old Testament it was the Israelite Joseph who became Pharaoh’s right hand man as a result of interpreting his dreams, after which time he was making a killing on grain speculation when Egypt and the surrounding areas were going through a famine. The final stage in the drama features the Egyptian people being completely despoiled of their property by Joseph in exchange for some food and some seeds. Later, as infamously recounted in the story of Moses and the exodus of God’s chosen people from that same country, the Israelites are told by Moses to ‘borrow’ the gold and silver of their Egyptian neighbors before fleeing. Upon arriving in the Holy Land, they continue their thievery, both in terms of the existing real estate and other items of wealth of the indigenous people whom they destroyed.
In effect then, what is taking place with regards to the exodus of American wealth is a repeat performance of what happened when the Israelites of old pretended to borrow the gold and silver of their Egyptian neighbors. In the same way as Americans ‘lend’ their money to Jewish banks and Jewish investment firms with the expectation it will be there when they ‘ask’ for it back, Jewish interests are now fleeing with the gold and silver as they high-tail it the hell out of America and into some new ‘promised land’ flowing with milk and honey, most likely one of the developing countries like China or India where there are plenty of desperate, hungry people who will work for pennies.
The timing of this meltdown lends further credence to the idea it is an Israeli operation aimed at bringing America and the West to their knees, as it is all taking place during the Jewish holy days beginning with Rosh Hashana and ending with Yom Kippur. Collectively the ten days are referred to as ‘the days of awe’, something that should elicit an audible ‘hmmmm’ by all concerned persons when considering the ‘shock and awe’ campaign of mass murder waged against Iraq by George Bush and his entourage of Jewish spies. Coincidentally (or not) the feast opening the days of awe, Rosh Hashana marks the opening of the economic new year and is called the ‘day of judgment,’ where Yahweh, the god of the Israelites, opens three ‘books of account’ and wherein the fate of the wicked, the righteous, and those of the middle class are recorded. The names of the righteous are immediately inscribed in the book of life and they are sealed “to live.” The middle class are allowed a respite of ten days, until Yom Kippur, to repent and become righteous and the wicked are “blotted out of the book of the living.”
In effect, the message being sent to Washington DC and the rest of the world was that they have a few days or weeks to get their collective act together and begin military operations against Judea’s ancient enemies in Persia lest they are ‘blotted out’ economically speaking.
Those who doubt that such historical and religious events play a role in operations of this type should consider the fact that Judea’s infamous ‘declaration of war’ against Germany in 1933 took place during Purim, the festival of revenge, as well as the war that has presently destroyed Iraq. The Jewish state is peopled by individuals who live in the 21st century BC while the rest of the world is living in the 21st century AD and it is the past that dictates all their actions.
The truly sad and sickening thing is that the handwriting is on the wall with regards to how this will be spun for ‘Christian’ consumption. As America continues to spiral downward economically, taking the world with her in Israel’s financial version of the Sampson Option, at some point the argument will be made (by Israel’s suggestion) through one or all of her many false prophets that this IS INDEED a repeat of Yahweh’s punishment for mistreating his favorite creatures has happened to Egypt. If only America had listened and done as she was told in attacking Iran, this would not be happening. The ‘fist of God’, just as hurricane Katrina was said to be a punishment on America for ‘forcing’ Israel to disengage from Gaza some years back.
It is at this time therefore that the words of war criminal Ariel Sharon should haunt the thoughts of people all over the world when he expressed longing for the day the world began to fear Israel rather than feeling sorry for her, adding ‘Maybe they will start to tremble, to fear our madness instead of admiring our nobility. Let them tremble, let them call us a mad state. Let them understand that we are a savage country, dangerous to our surroundings, not normal, that we might go wild, that we might start World War Three just like that, or that we might one day go crazy’ as well as his infamous ‘We, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.”
And as the existing world order is torn to pieces by ‘mad dog’ Israel (as former Defense Minster Moshe Dayan referred to her) the words of Lord Rothschild, virtual founding father of the Jewish state–come into clearer view–
‘Give me control over a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws’.

But sadly most would just ask, what tyranny?
The farcical "war on terror" has precipitated our decline. What goes around comes around, they say. Did you really think we could bomb and destroy other countries and cultures forever? Or that our zionist lords cared more about us than the people we're fighting to subjugate for them? Look on the bright side. With the collapse of our economy, and this last bit of theft called the bailout for good measure, we'll be serving our zionist lords the same as those whose countries we've destroyed: as paupers. We'll all be equal.

No one is more surprised than Shlomo Sand that his latest academic work has spent 19 weeks on Israel’s bestseller list – and that success has come to the history professor despite his book challenging Israel’s biggest taboo.
Dr. Sand argues that the idea of a Jewish nation – whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel – is a myth invented little more than a century ago.
An expert on European history at Tel Aviv University, Dr. Sand drew on extensive historical and archaeological research to support not only this claim but several more – all equally controversial.
In addition, he argues that the Jews were never exiled from the Holy Land, that most of today’s Jews have no historical connection to the land called Israel and that the only political solution to the country’s conflict with the Palestinians is to abolish the Jewish state.
The success of When and How Was the Jewish People Invented? looks likely to be repeated around the world. A French edition, launched last month, is selling so fast that it has already had three print runs.
Translations are under way into a dozen languages, including Arabic and English. But he predicted a rough ride from the pro-Israel lobby when the book is launched by his English publisher, Verso, in the United States next year.
In contrast, he said Israelis had been, if not exactly supportive, at least curious about his argument. Tom Segev, one of the country’s leading journalists, has called the book "fascinating and challenging".
The idea for the book came to him many years ago, Dr. Sand said, but he waited until recently to start working on it. "I cannot claim to be particularly courageous in publishing the book now," he said. "I waited until I was a full professor. There is a price to be paid in Israeli academia for expressing views of this sort."
Dr. Sand’s main argument is that until little more than a century ago, Jews thought of themselves as Jews only because they shared a common religion. At the turn of the 20th century, he said, Zionist Jews challenged this idea and started creating a national history by inventing the idea that Jews existed as a people separate from their religion.
Equally, the modern Zionist idea of Jews being obligated to return from exile to the Promised Land was entirely alien to Judaism, he added.
"Zionism changed the idea of Jerusalem. Before, the holy places were seen as places to long for, not to be lived in. For 2,000 years Jews stayed away from Jerusalem not because they could not return but because their religion forbade them from returning until the messiah came."
The biggest surprise during his research came when he started looking at the archaeological evidence from the biblical era.
"I was not raised as a Zionist, but like all other Israelis I took it for granted that the Jews were a people living in Judea and that they were exiled by the Romans in 70AD.
"But once I started looking at the evidence, I discovered that the kingdoms of David and Solomon were legends.
"Similarly with the exile. In fact, you can’t explain Jewishness without exile. But when I started to look for history books describing the events of this exile, I couldn’t find any. Not one.
"That was because the Romans did not exile people. In fact, Jews in Palestine were overwhelming peasants and all the evidence suggests they stayed on their lands."
Instead, he believes an alternative theory is more plausible: the exile was a myth promoted by early Christians to recruit Jews to the new faith. "Christians wanted later generations of Jews to believe that their ancestors had been exiled as a punishment from God."
So, if there was no exile, how is it that so many Jews ended up scattered around the globe before the modern state of Israel began encouraging them to "return"?
Dr. Sand said that, in the centuries immediately preceding and following the Christian era, Judaism was a proselytising religion, desperate for converts. "This is mentioned in the Roman literature of the time."
Jews travelled to other regions seeking converts, particularly in Yemen and among the Berber tribes of North Africa. Centuries later, the people of the Khazar kingdom in what is today south Russia, would convert en masse to Judaism, becoming the genesis of the Ashkenazi Jews of central and eastern Europe.
Dr. Sand pointed to the strange state of denial in which most Israelis live, noting that papers offered extensive coverage recently to the discovery of the capital of the Khazar kingdom next to the Caspian Sea.
Ynet, the website of Israel’s most popular newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, headlined the story: "Russian archaeologists find long-lost Jewish capital." And yet none of the papers, he added, had considered the significance of this find to standard accounts of Jewish history.
One further question is prompted by Dr Sand’s account, as he himself notes: if most Jews never left the Holy Land, what became of them?
"It is not taught in Israeli schools but most of the early Zionist leaders, including David Ben Gurion [Israel’s first prime minister], believed that the Palestinians were the descendants of the area’s original Jews. They believed the Jews had later converted to Islam."
Dr. Sand attributed his colleagues’ reticence to engage with him to an implicit acknowledgement by many that the whole edifice of "Jewish history" taught at Israeli universities is built like a house of cards.

Today, in America, the Federal Reserve is doing the exact same thing by flooding the U.S. economy with counterfeit dollars. But we're not talking about a few hundred million dollars here: The Federal Reserve is engaged in an economic carpet bombing campaign involving the counterfeiting of TRILLIONS of dollars.
Read this true, historical report of the similarities between the Federal Reserve and Operation Bernhardt here.

Although the "surge" has failed as policy, it appears to be succeeding as propaganda. It seems to be the only thing that supporters of the war have to point to, and so they point, and they point, and they point. Allow me to point out that while there has been a reduction in violence in Iraq -- now down to a level that virtually any other society in the world would find horrible and intolerable, including Iraqi society before the US invasion and occupation -- we must keep in mind that thanks to this lovely little war more than half the population of Iraq is either dead, crippled, traumatized, confined in overflowing American and Iraqi prisons, internally displaced, or in foreign exile.
Thus, the number of people available for being killers or victims is markedly reduced.
Just imagine -- If the entire Iraqi population over the age of 10 is killed, disabled, imprisoned or forced into exile there will probably be no violence at all. Now that would really be victory.
No American should be allowed to forget that Iraqi society has been destroyed. The people of that unhappy land have lost everything -- their homes, their schools, their neighborhoods, their mosques, their jobs, their careers, their professionals, their health care, their legal system, their women's rights, their religious tolerance, their security, their past, their present, their future, their lives. But they do have their surge.

The Coup of 2000 is now consolidated. You've all been good sheeple surrending your rights to drummep-up fears and cooperating with the coup consolidation process by agreeing with the MSM channelers that anyone that raised attention to the dismantling of your democracy was a kook, far left idealogue, 60s wannabe radical, Hollywood liberal, or a conspiracy nut. Congratulations sheeple. Your cooperation has made the process virtually painless.

I am starting to believe that America is currently operated from a bingo hall in Florida. If this sounds outlandish, just pay a little attention to the neo-con lads who now infest the corridors of power in the Beltway.
Most Americans don’t know what a neo-con looks like. You could load all the neo-cons in America on a Greyhound bus and still have room for a dozen US marshals to accompany them to their treason trials.
Statistically, you are more likely to meet an American Maoist than a neo-con of any nationality. If you think I exaggerate the minuscule size of this political ‘movement’, than how come you’ve never met a real live neo-conservative? Just because these freaks are constantly beamed into your living room by FOX doesn’t mean they actually exist. In the real world you can’t find a trace of them on the political landscape of America’s heartland. In political parlance, they have no footprint, no constituency and are not a political party.
Your average American probably thinks neo-cons are wise guys that fleece the public with new and improved Three-Card Monty scams. But among the cultural elite, the word neo-con is short for ‘neo-conservatives’. They added ‘neo’ to their political label because the authentic American conservative movement considered them too suspect to embrace when they defected from the left wing of the Democratic party. In fact, the vast majority of conservatives resent the fact that a few dozen Likudnik activists managed to hijack their political creed by simply adding a three-letter prefix to the conservative logo.
Over time, we all encounter real live Americans with views that span the whole spectrum of every political doctrine developed since Adam and Eve. The vast majority are likely to identify themselves as Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives, Right Wing, Left Wing, Libertarians, Greens, Independents or uninterested.
Once you veer to the fringe of the mainstream spectrum you encounter other political subcultures. They come in two varieties; the single-issue activists and the ideologically impaired. Single-issue groups are folks who identify themselves by such labels as environmentalists, pro-life, pro-choice, minority rights and civil rights activists, feminists and so on. Moving to the ideological margins, one finds small clusters of Maoists, Monarchists, Marxists, Michigan Militia members, Gray Panthers and Flat Earth agitators. In actual body count, even the tiniest most marginal American political movement outnumbers the neo-conservatives.
The neo-cons are unique in American history in that they did not rise to power on the strength of a grass roots constituency. Rather, they came to rule the United States by deploying a few high caliber think tanks in the nation’s capital.
We will not go into the details of the neo-con coup de etat. That story has already been well documented by quite a few independent journalists including Jim Lobe, Justin Raimundo and Karen Kwiatkowski, a retired USAF Lieutenant Colonel. In their very informative articles, they point out that most of the neo-con tribe can trace their origins to the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and JINSA, The Jewish institute for National Security Affairs.
The largest contributor to the AEI is Irving Moskowitz, a bingo hall operator from Florida. He is a militant supporter of the Jewish settlement movement in Israel and the occupied territories. Going down the list of Bush Administration foreign policy gurus, one encounters dozens of graduates of the AEI, a pro-Israeli lobby group that camouflages itself in the garb of a pseudo-academic ‘research’ establishment. In fact, the only thing they research at the AEI is the best marketing strategies for selling Sharon’s real estate fantasies with a ‘made in America’ label.
The AEI is not Harvard or Yale or even South Seattle community college. They don’t have a campus and their website warns visitors that they might have parking problems on a visit to their offices. In fact, in the lobby business, the AEI is not that extraordinary. It has a budget of about $30 million, a staff of fifty or so Likudnik operatives puffed with fancy labels like “resident scholar” and “AEI fellow”.
So, how did this bingo hall financed ‘enterprise’, a lobby working for the account of a foreign government, end up placing over twenty of its graduates in the most sensitive positions at the Pentagon and the State department? The short answer is they rode into town on a Trojan horse named Dick Cheney. His wife still draws a paycheck from the AEI. The Vice President along with Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Lewis Libby, Douglas Feith, John Bolton and Elliot Abrams all have long standing ties to the American Enterprise Institute and other institutions under the Israeli Lobby umbrella.
After placing so many of their operatives in such sensitive second tier positions; the next step for this bingo hall subsidized cabal was to project their presence on the national stage. For this task, they recruited mass media operatives like William Safire, who boasts about writing Sharon’s speeches and Charles Krauthammer, a designated OSP leaker. Some of the other neo-con media personalities are Judith ‘WMD’ Miller, Wolf ‘War Room’ Blitzer, Aaron ‘arson’ Brown, Andrea Mitchell (a centerfold on AEI’s web site) and Ted Koppel, a family friend of Netenyahu. By far, the most formidable part of their media arsenal is Rupert Murdoch’s neo-con gang at FOX, The Weekly Standard and the New York POST.
On account of their friends in high media places, the neo-cons were given a virtual monopoly on using the giant podiums at CNN and FOX plus open access to the editorial pages of the New York Times, The Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. Newspaper syndicates further amplified their message by distributing neo-con editorials to every major municipal paper across the country. So, if you missed them on FOX, you were certain to read their opinions in your morning paper.
Consider the strange case of Richard Perle. Believe it or not, he is not even a government official. Still he roams the globe issuing threats to the French, the Turks, the Russians and the Arabs like he was the uncrowned emperor of the realm. He shows up in Jerusalem with the likes of a bigot like Daniel Pipes to swear allegiance to the vision of a ‘Greater Israel’. Yet Perle’s only connection to the government is that he belongs to the Pentagon equivalent of the PTA, the Defense Policy Board. What kind of education programs would we have if a member of your local PTA could usurp the power of the Department of Education? Among other things, this extremist Likudnik chickenhawk arrogated to his neo-con cabal the power to dress down four star generals on battle strategies. He proclaimed that troop deployment requirements were a “political decision that they were not qualified to make”. Maybe we should close down West Point and open the Richard Perle Center for the Advanced Study of Middle East Invasions.
Moving on to Paul Wolfowitz. Since when did a Deputy Secretary of Defense have such a high public profile? Can you name a single Deputy Secretary of any Department since George Washington? How exactly did the position of a Deputy Secretary evolve to the point where he could usurp the power of the State Department? How about Bolton, the man who doesn’t “do carrots”? It is an open secret in Washington that his role at the State Department is to watch over Colin Powell and make sure that Foggy Bottom marches to the beat of the neo-con war drums.
While projecting themselves as a political movement, the neo-cons went shopping for a ‘real’ constituency. They found willing allies among the millions of Americans on the Christian Right who believe Armageddon is around the corner. All it took to convince them was the promise that the neo-con agenda would speed up the end of times. The pitch was that Sharon’s repression of the Palestinians was part of the All Mighty’s plan to bring on the final days.
Now that their war games have unraveled, the neo-con cabal is smearing their detractors as anti-Semites while canvassing the exit doors. Once they regroup, you will probably find them in Florida gathered around Moskowitz, their patron saint. After a little rest, they will be back in the business of writing new manuals for operating America. Believe it or not, some little old lady in Miami is marking a bingo card and changing the history of the world.
There's No Difference Between Marhall Law and the Threat of Marshall Law, George Washington’s Blog, Saturday, Oct 4, 2008
If a bully threatens to beat up a skinny kid if he doesn’t give him his lunch money, and the bully doesn’t have to follow through because the kid does fork it over, does that mean that the aggressive kid isn’t a bully?
Of course not. He’s a bully because he threatened to beat up the skinny kid and used coercion to get his way.
Well, Congressman Sherman said that congress was threatened with martial law this week. Specifically, he says that Congress was told martial law would be imposed if they didn’t pass the Paulson bailout proposal.
Martial law means that the separation of powers which the Founding Fathers enshrined in the Constitution are destroyed, and an all-powerful executive branch calls the shots.
Is the threat of imposing martial law any different than actually imposing it?
No. Congress is just like the skinny kid.
Just because it forked over $700 billion or more in our lunch money based upon coercion by the thugs in the executive branch doesn’t mean that the thugs are still following the separation of powers or anything else in the Constitution.
Remember that, for years, Congress has operated under “martial law” provisions which force Congress members to vote on legislation without having time to adequately read and review it.
Remember also that the U.S. has been in a declared state of national emergency for 7 years, and normal constitutional provisions were probably long ago superseded.
As University of California Berkeley Professor Emeritus Peter Dale Scott has warned:
“The systems of checks and balances established by the U.S. Constitution would seem to be failing.
To put it another way, if the White House is successful in frustrating [Congress' requests], then [the declared state of emergency] has arguably already superseded the Constitution as a higher authority.”
And remember that U.S. troops are being stationed inside the U.S. to suppress “civil unrest”.
Whether or not there is martial law in name, there is martial law in fact.
We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men ~~ George Orwell
So here we sit, our heads jerking back and forth so rapidly most of us are suffering severe whiplash.
Will the US attack Iran? Will Israel attack Iran? Or will the two war-mongering bullies join forces and "bomb, bomb, bomb" that belligerent twit-nation into subservience?
It's a great game. A deadly game. The momentum to attack Iran has been building for so long that we're conditioned to watching it like some grotesque international tennis competition. It's the Peter Principle Playoffs, with neoconsters and ziomonsters out on the court milling around, working at their highest "levels of incompetence," feverishly plotting Iran's destruction. Foul lines mean nothing to them. There are no rules, no officials, no scores, no accountability.
Immediately before Bush invaded Iraq, the criminally insane John Bolton, then Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, made a personal trip to Israel to assure Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that as soon as we destroyed Iraq, we'd "deal with threats" from Syria, Iran and North Korea. However, it's obvious Iran has always been at the top of the list.
Since 2003, both US and Israeli governments, the corporate media, especially Fox News, and the US Congress have been unrelenting in their campaign to convince the world that Iran is an immediate nuclear threat, although Iran insists it is seeking nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. In August 2003, the UK Guardian's Simon Tisdall wrote, "They call it a trap. But we call it Bolton's first law of international power politics; keep the other guy guessing; wear him down. When he gives a little, demand a whole lot more. Then zap him anyway."
Bolton's Law: Make wild accusations. Escalate terror and confusion. Kill. Repeat.
It's no laughing matter, but the sight of this tousle-headed, "got milk?" maniac running in circles, warning of -- demanding -- a nuclear holocaust is good for a grin, albeit a grim one. Even as he was being forced onto the United Nations over national and international objections, Bolton was hot on Iran's trail. He insisted that Iran is the most dangerous critter out there -- harboring terrorists, arming terrorists, training terrorists -- sending bombs, IEDs, weapons to Iraq to kill Americans. If it weren't for Iran, there would have been no 9-11 attack because Iran provided safe haven for the box-cutting killers headed our way. Bolton warned if Iran managed to produce a single nuclear weapon, Israel, the United States -- the world -- was toast. He promised that Iran will come after us. "That's the threat," Bolton barked, "that's the reality whether you like it or not. And it will be just like Sept. 11, only with nuclear weapons this time."
Bolton keeps showing up for work even though his paycheck is now signed by the second most powerful Israeli Lobby, the American Enterprise Institute. He's determined that Iran is going down and, if he can't goad the US into action, he will whip Israel into a frenzy. Like the Batman's Joker, Bolton leaps from the pages of the Wall Street Journal in catastrophic convulsions on a regular basis. On July 15, Bolton insisted "we should be intensively considering what cooperation the U.S. will extend to Israel before, during and after a strike on Iran. We will be blamed for the strike anyway," Bolton reasoned, "...so there is compelling logic to make it as successful as possible. At a minimum, we should place no obstacles in Israel's path, and facilitate its efforts where we can."
Who's On First?
Bolton is surrounded by fellow psychopaths like Norman Podhoretz who insists our only choice is to bomb Iran before Iran gets the bomb and bombs us.
Podhoretz is a key figure in the Playoffs with his constant drumbeat that Iran is the "leading sponsor of terrorism in the world," and once it achieves nuclear technology, we're all gonna die!
And National Review's Larry Kudlow, who swooned ecstatically when Israel cluster-bombed Lebanon two years ago. Israel was "doing the Lord's work," defending freedom against the "Iranian cat's-paw" of terrorism. Kudlow says Israel must not stop, but furiously attack "all the terrorist sanctuaries, training camps, weapons caches, and missile systems it can find." Scary Larry enthusiastically supports at least half of Bolton's Law -- the last half.
Others joining Bolton for whom the destruction of Iran is a political game include Bill Kristol, virtuous "bookie" Bill Bennett, Joe Lieberman, and Daniel Pipes, whose harsh and raucous predictions center around whether Bush will attack Iran before or after the upcoming election. If McCain wins, most say that Bush will pass the nuclear baton to him while sprinting to the finish line to pardon his fellow war criminals. However, if McCain should lose, they agree that Bush will get his war on and leave the mess for Obama to clean up.
Those who continue to beat the drums of war trust that we will believe what they say without considering the obvious. Just last week, to coincide with President Ahmadi-Nejad's visit to the UN, former UN ambassador Richard Holbrooke, former CIA director James Woolsey, former Clinton Middle East coordinator Dennis Ross, and former UN representative for management and reform Mark Wallace wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal regurgitating rigid neoconservative talking points.
Channeling Cheney, they wrote that we shouldn't believe Iran when it says it "needs nuclear energy and is enriching nuclear materials for strictly peaceful purposes." Hey, Iran has "vast supplies of inexpensive oil and natural gas," so there's no "legitimate economic reason for Iran to pursue nuclear energy."
Then, unable to resist an unsubstantiated "Bushism" or two, these heavy hitters warned that "Iran is a deadly and irresponsible world actor," and should it get the bomb, Iran would "sponsor terror, threaten our allies, and support the most deadly elements of the Iraqi insurgency."
Finally, they whipped out Bolton's Law with the wild -- and discredited -- accusation that "President Ahmadinejad specifically calls for Israel to be 'wiped from the map,' while seeking the weapons to do so."
The constant discordant barrage of accusations and demands is so outrageous we attempt to shrug it off as mostly ideological clatter-babble, yet we sit paralyzed with fear. We are unable to recognize the real danger that looms just beyond the shadows.
But we know he's there. When Dick Cheney emerges, we are bewitched by the horror he evokes as he piles lie upon bloody lie about Iran's nuclear activities -- in spite of international findings and US intelligence lack of evidence. He accuses Iran of smuggling weapons of mass destruction into Iraq to kill Americans. Iran is training insurgents, is joined at the hip with Al-Qaeda, is the world's most dangerous sponsor of terrorism, and if it can get its hands on just one nuclear weapon, it will immediately lob it in Israel's direction.
In 2005, Cheney instructed the Pentagon to draw up a plan for a nuclear attack on Iran should another 9-11-type terrorist attack on the U.S. occur, even if Iran had nothing to do with it. To provoke a war, Cheney suggested dressing up Navy Seals as Iranians, putting them on fake Iranian speedboats, and shooting at them. Murdering Americans in cold blood, exterminating 60-70 million innocent Iranians and contaminating millions more throughout the region is a small price for Cheney to pay. Iran must face the consequences for having the audacity to possess two-thirds of the world's oil.
Bad, Bad Ahmadi-Nejad
Since being elected in June 2005 as Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad has rhetorically stepped in it and tracked it all over the Persian rug.
Scarcely in office four months, he gave a speech in which he quoted the Ayatollah Khomeini who had said years earlier -- "This regime occupying Jerusalem (een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods) must [vanish from] from the page of time (bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad)." That comment was transcribed as Ahmadi-Nejad threatening to wipe Israel off the map, and despite repeated efforts to get the correct translation out, the world's media went into a shrieking frenzy that has yet to abate.
Ahmadi-Nejad has made numerous public and private diplomatic overtures to the United States in the last three years, and all have been rejected -- with insults, sneers, and threats. It is critical to the outcome of the Playoffs that spectators see Ahmadi-Nejad as a criminally insane killer who is a threat to the entire world. He is sort of cocky, and his arrogance at insisting that Iran has the same rights and privileges under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty as the other members, that Iran has the right to pursue nuclear power for peaceful purposes, and that George Bush is not Iran's "Decider" is driving guys like Bolton over the edge.
Which -- when you think about it -- is not necessarily a bad thing...
So, who is this guy? Few know that Ahmadi-Nejad is an Engineer with a Ph.D on transportation engineering, a university professor, a working member on the Iran Civil Engineering Society, and the Islamic Association of Students in the Science and Technology University, as well as others. He is an accomplished journalist and former managing director of the Hamshahri newspaper. He was the mayor of Tehran before running for president. Even fewer know that, in reality, he wields no power other than that allotted to him by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader. He's deeply religious, stubborn and reckless. He's unpredictable and, at times, dangerous.
Ohmigod -- when you think about it -- Ahmadi-Nejad is "Bush with Brains!"
Should We Fear Iran?
Iran's nuclear ambitions for other than peaceful purposes are as elusive as Iraq's WMD, which defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld said were "in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat." Yet we are in danger of being swept up in the propaganda catapulted by the Bush administration and the corporate media once again. Perhaps we should take a deep breath and apply a bit of logic here, pay close attention to the obvious. If Iran is truly a threat to the entire world, then we should be afraid. However, demanding that Iran either prove a negative or face extermination of millions of its citizens does not, and should not, pass the terror smell test.
It is obvious that, in this unstable era, we should be aware of, and even fear, those countries bristling with nukes. For starters, the United States has more nuclear weapons than any other nation. Then there's Russia, China, France, Britain, India, Pakistan, North Korea and...shhhhh...Israel.
Currently, Pakistan is in turmoil and threatening to shoot down US planes that fly across the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and kill civilians, Russia refuses to back off from its Georgia stance no matter how vigorously Condi Rice wags her finger in its face, China has abruptly cut off financial deals with the US because of the plummeting dollar, and North Korea is restarting its Yongbyon nuclear reactor because Bush broke his promise to remove it from Washington's list of state sponsors of terror.
Yet, amidst all this fury and instability, we are obsessed with destroying Iran -- a nation that, in modern history, has never attacked another country -- and which has repeatedly maintained it seeks nuclear power primarily for generating electricity for its growing population.
In 2005, Ayatollah Khamenei issued a Fatwa that "the production, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons are forbidden under Islam and that Iran shall never acquire these weapons."
What is obvious to anyone familiar with the timeline of Iran's nuclear program from the 1950s is that Iran has never sought nuclear energy for anything other than peaceful purposes. In 1957, the Shah opened the American Atoms for Peace in Tehran, and signed an agreement with the US for cooperation in research on peaceful uses of nuclear technology. And, in 1968, Iran signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty on the first day it opened for signature. In the late 70's, the US supplied Iran with two nuclear power reactors and enriched uranium fuel, and granted Iran the "most favored nation" status so it would not be discriminated against when seeking permission to reprocess US-origin fuel.
To restate the obvious -- if we are to fear Iran, it is not because, as Bush said in June -- "They refuse to abandon their desires to develop the know-how which could lead to a nuclear weapon" -- it is because Iran threatens to defend itself if attacked. It is because other nations, such as Russia, refuse to stand idly by as Iran is "wiped off the map."
We need to get our minds around who is the aggressor here. Because if we continue to passively watch the evil unfold; if Dick Cheney wins the behind-the-scenes, off-court power struggle, the Peter Principle Playoffs will be over and the entire Middle East will explode in nuclear flames.
