Lannan liberals ensure John Pilger’s THE WAR YOU DON’T SEE remains a documentary Americans won’t see

John Pilger's documentary THE WAR YOU DON'T SEE was due to make its US debut this week, before its Santa Fe venue, the Lannan Foundation, abruptly cancelled the event. Given less than two days notice, plane tickets cancelled on the personal direction of the foundation's funder Patrick Lannan, with no explanation offered. Pilger details on Zcom his concern for what just days ago had been an enthusiastic venue. The Lannan organization still boasts it will be hosting Tariq Ali and Norman Finkelstein among others, so it's hard to deduce where Pilger's film crossed the line. My guess? Not just the role the US media plays in promoting war, but its bias toward you know who. 24574

Pentagon says bombing civilians necessary, will continue.

Of Course. Then we'll have Nut-Jobs like Charlie from the dead soldier picture comments saying that "No Marine he ever knew ever killed a baby", well, Charlie, Your Comrades Sure The Hell Do, Daily, and the Pentagon says it's "necessary" because mommy and daddy didn't surrender, didn't bow down and lick the jackboots of the NATO Imperial Stormtroopers like you. Some "freedom" y'all are fighting for, Free to submit to Corporate American rule or die, and your kids with you.

W.A.S.P. Triumphalism, Memorial Day and The Wingless Vultures

I swear the Territory Days Triumphalism celebration (Like the so-called "Islamic Triumphalism" rally around the world last September 11th, remember that? They were celebrating Eid, one of their holidays they celebrate every damn year using the same Lunar Calendar the Israelis use. It's like Famous Racist Jerkoff Mel Gibson if he would actually go so far as saying that Passover is Jewish Triumphalism for killing Jesus) is getting More Racist every year. Anyway, at Territory Days they're celebrating Custer, Kit Carson, Gen Palmer, Colonel Chivington... claiming once more that the Sand Creek Massacre was instead a necessary battle because the Cheyenne and Arapaho, who had a legal right to be there, were Threatening Being Bad Indians And Not Doing What Their Newly Self-Appointed White Overlords Told Them To Do. The White Overlords who didn't have a legal right to be there. 24516

Operation Iraqi Freedom To Say And Do Exactly What They’re Told

Apparently the Imperialists weren't lying when they said they were bringing American-style "freedoms" In Bahrain and in Iraq... where the Iraqi Puppet Government PIGS have used American style Police Tactics to break up demonstrations, including, with the United States "Freedom" Army standing ready to back them up if the Peasants took the upper hand, simply slaughtering protestors. Something the Colorado Springs Gestapo knows full well, beating and arresting peaceful marchers (mostly elderly and disabled) in the St Patricks Day Parade 2007 "Protesters took to the streets of Iraq again today, demanding the same reforms that have become common cause across the Arab world. But while most nations have chosen violence or empty promises (both of which the Maliki government has dabbled in) to answer these demands, Iraq is also taking a very American idea. On Wednesday the government announced a ban on protests in the capital city of Baghdad, saying that street vendors had complained it was hurting business. The answer was to sequester protesters into specially designated free speech zones. The US began using “free speech areas” to move political dissent away from public view, nominally for security reasons, and became extremely common starting in 2004, when both major party conventions herded protesters

Brits on Kenya: “Oopsies!!”

Turns out that the common knowledge of the past 50+ years was right, the American backed British colonial government was, despite American and British denials, murdering, torturing and "disappearing" people, just like they did in every other nation where they sent in the Royal Marines to take over the local management and "bring civilization to the Wogs" I'm sure the redcoats would love to see that particular word disappear, but hey, it shows the true nature of Imperialism and Colonialism in all its ugly inglory. What that means HERE, you know how the TeaBags and other Right Wing Extremists like the Klan and their "unofficial" affiliates the Minutemen like to harp on President Obama's Dad being a MauMau? And that the term "freedom fighter" is just a Liberal euphemism for barbaric terrorist? Like how the MauMau were supposedly preying on the defenseless and weak Colonial Overlords, the Darkie Horde (the stupid bastards say the same thing about the Nat Turner Rebellion in American Slavery) rising up against their lawful White masters with no reason, because they had been well treated, and given as much Human Rights as one could appropriately give Savages... I capitalized that last because Michael "Savage" Weiner likes to do

‘Call us when WE behead somebody’ …again.

So, what happens when we do WORSE than behead somebody? Say, for instance, gut-shoot a third-world person knowing full well that the only place in town which can treat an abdominal wound is a hospital associated with whatever torture regime we're propping up, or a US Military Hospital who will patch the dude up and then turn him over to somebody like the Saigon Torture Regime? Which is what these rifles were designed for doing. Not for a humane quick kill. 23388

Yahoo empire blinks on Libya!

Saddling up, out of the shadows of covert participation in the Libyan rebellion against bogeyman Gaddafi might be the US misstep which the Arab movement has been looking for. It's not enough that Barack Obama's active suppression of public uprisings in Bahrain and Yemen unmasked his administration as anti-Democratic, now he's deploying the brute force already visited on Iraq. Bombs against Gaddafi will soon enough yield innocent civilian deaths and America's War on Islam not only expands in North Africa, it pits itself against the entire pan-Arab revolution. The Qatar-based Al Jazeera Network may have its own motives for beating the drums of war against the loose cannon madman Gaddafi, while sparing the House of Saud similar vilification, but AJ has succeeded in goading the Western powers to put their weapons where their oil is, effectively throwing fuel on a fire that was stalling against the firewall of the dictator's repressive might. Forget Ben Ali, Mubarak and Gaddafi, the adversary to unite Arabia will be the USA. And while conventional wisdom for Western governance is to announce unpopular policy during the black hole Friday news cycle, our arrogance shows itself tone-deaf to Islam. We might have figured it out

Corporate personhood: unintended consequences

yes/no: are corporations persons? Are Corporations composed of shareholders? Do Corporations act on behalf and with the explicit consent of the shareholders? Has the corporation, with said consent, used any consideration of value including the intellectual property of the corporate officers or of salaried employees or contractors ever made statements supporting the Death Penalty or joined as paying members any organization supporting the Death Penalty? Do they accept without question the definitions of Capital crimes including giving false testimony which results in the death of another human being, killing for money, treason? Of the shareholders holding a majority of the stocks bonds or other assets of the corporation, do ANY have stocks in Advertising AND firearms corporations AND Data/Software Corporations which publish movies or video games glorifying violence? Do any of the corporate Persons advocate the notion that firearms are necessary for self defense? Have any of the corporate persons made statements advocating lenience in the cases of persons condemned to death as accessories to capital murder, such as the "getaway driver"? Does the corporation support acts of retaliation against the perpetrators of 9/11? Does the Corporation support such acts even against nations which were NOT the perpetrators, such as Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Afghanistan? Combine the answers with facts such

The spreading wave of Democracy… threatens Oil Companies.

To the point that Oil Corporation workers in Bahrain and throughout the Persian Gulf, North Africa and the Indian Ocean are on high alert. The people there know which side of their toast is buttered and they're plenty swoll about being ripped off, enslaved, targeted by Oil Company hired goons like the Blackwater Thug assassins, Drone Operators bombing them from secret rooms halfway around the world: Video Gamers who were recruited from living in their moms' basement with the promise that they can Kill Humans for real and not face any consequences or put their own cowardly lives in danger. Now the oilfields, refineries and shipyards of the world are under security lockdown. The ever-nearby British-American military bases also in danger. The tactics-- IEDs, car bombs, hijacked airplanes? nope. People. There have been reports throughout the long long long Imperial Wars of the Imperial Stormtroopers being fired on by the Imperial-armed Slave Soldiers of the local provinces. BP and the old Standard Oil allegedly broken up, Exxon-Mobil, Chevron, Texaco, Gulf.. getting back together again just in time... They've spent trillions of other people's dollars (guilders, francs, marks and pounds too) and hundreds of millions of other peoples' lives and more than a

The Memorial Park Grenade and Drugs

The CS Fuzz Dept isn't squeaking very loudly about the grenade they found at Prospect Lake a couple of days ago. There's ways to make a booby trap from a hand grenade, take one and set it down, prop a rock onto it and set the rock on a small stick, so the rock will fall off if the stick is disturbed, lots of ways to make the stick fall out. Test the rig to make sure. assemble it and extract the safety pin then leave, and never go back. That doesn't seem to be the case with the Lake Grenade. But it's Apparently a U.S. Army hand grenade of which there are several types, standard enough in triggering style, weight and size of the device, many made by an Israeli based firm called LGB Ltd. The cops would have a database on who supplies them. NOW... Drugs. 22986

Royal Wedding rescue mission to provide Bread and Circus distraction…

As the Empire burns... "Rescue Mission" was the excuse for the ultimately FAILED invasion of Grenada, to draw attention away from the Iran/Contra cartel FAILURE getting skunked in Lebanon. And to divert attention from the British Naval bombardment of Argentina under pretext of defending an Imperial Possession and the fact that the U.S. Military, in direct renegation of the Constitutionally ratified treaty with the Organization of American States, was actively assisting the British Empire with their unlawful attacks against the people and nation of Argentina. Just a small part of that Wonderful Reagan/Maggot Thatcher Legacy that the right wing TeaTards are celebrating. Stupid Bastards. 22740

Remember the Maine? Egyptians will.

Remember the Maine? In 1898 a popular uprising was threatening Spanish rule in Cuba. The US Navy cruised to the rescue. The rescue of whom, we never got the chance to find out. An explosion aboard the USS Maine gave America the pretext to blame a Spanish torpedo. An America inflamed by a jingoist press declared war on Spain and promptly seized her colonies "to protect US interests," by coincidence just as the indigenous populations were overcoming their colonizer and were about to win their freedom. Today a US attack fleet speeds toward Egypt. Washington asserts its mission is to evacuate US nationals if need be. 22767

If “Security Firm” HBGary knows “high command” of Anonymous…

Why then weren't they contracted by the U.S. Dept of (in)Justice to find the sender of the email on the White House LAN, who gave Pooter Libby the information to help the BushTards punish Valerie Plame Wilson for not backing up their LIES about WMDs? Wouldn't the Capital Murders of 7000+ U.S. soldiers committed by the CheneyBush Kartel stir patriotic interest on the part of ANY of them? One of the Bush Lies was that they HAD initiated a thorough investigation into the Plame leak, but couldn't find anything. Yet Disney and other entertainment outlets can find not only the ORIGIN of a file transfer, but also the computer receiving the data, or so they claim on all of the billions of IP addresses on the Internet, but they can't find one person sending an email from a specific computer, at a specific time, from the White House which has a camera trained on every door, especially in a time of "heightened security"? On an extremely limited Local Area Network. 22725

Cameron vows Racial Cultural purity for Britain

Says he doesn't have anything against Islam, just "radical" Islam, meaning, Muslims who don't bow down before his Naturally Superior White Culture. He also, as prime minister to ROYALTY, and incidentally the same Royal Family that used to hunt his ancestors, just for sport, babbles much about Democracy and respect for other cultures. Which he says is somehow the hallmark of the British Empire. 22717

So the State Department is once more Dictating to Egypt

Hosni Mubarak must stay - US envoy Frank Wisner: 'This is an ideal moment for Mubarak to show the way forward' Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak "must stay in office" during a power transition, a US special envoy says. Frank Wisner was speaking as protesters kept up their demands for Mr Mubarak to step down immediately. In other words, for Democracy to succeed in Egypt the people of Egypt have to accede to the will of the foremost enemy of democracy in the modern world. "Do as we tell you, so you can enjoy all the freedom we GIVE you... Just hold out your neck for the collar..." Because it's in the U.S. Imperial errr "National" interest of the people of Iran that there be a U.S. controlled errr "backed" Satrapy err Democratic Regime errr... strong centralized government in WashingtonEgypt, but run from Washingto Cairo for when we liberate Iran through the use of nuclear devastation.

Mad-ministration scared now…

Tunisia, Lebanon, now Cairo. They're said to be the lynchpins in "Middle East Peace" meaning Pox Americana. Somehow ONLY the U.S. is capable of determning peace terms WTF? Maybe there IS a huge disconnect in perception here in America. (Ok, "maybe" is just being polite) but going around conquering nations isn't exactly a stabilizing mechanism. Setting up puppet dictators in those conquered nations, conquered either through overt war like in Iraq and Afghanistan and Greece and South Korea, or through Diplomacy coupled with assassinations. That won't lead to peace either. There was a saying in the Military "Peace, through superior firepower" well, that's not peace, that's conquest. You can only force people to do your will for a limited time. Sooner or later, usually sooner, it comes roaring back and bites you square on your arse. Now Obama and Mrs Clinton are treading a fine line, do we overtly back the demonstrators, in the hopes that they'll be nice to our Slaverymongers Ambassadors of goodwill and freedom, or back Mubarak in the off chance that he'll be able to suppress this rebellion (doing it on behalf of his Washington UberMeisters) and "We" would have to make nice to him. All to keep

2 AM, time to piss off the Navy.

So this is the USN "crackerjack" work uniform blouse, from behind. Notice the two stars on a broad field of blue. That's, according to my brother the Sailor, symbolic. The stars stand for the two times the USN fought the Royal Navy, and won. The extra large field is to make room for more stars as needed. A wonderful imperial gesture, yes? "We are mighty, you shall obey us!"   Then there's BP. Which was founded as an adjunct to the Royal Navy and had the Royal Navy and even the U.S. Navy fight to secure their supply sources, which, surprise surprise surprise, none of which are actually in England. The propaganda bit they put out when they helped launch World War One, "That small nations might have the same rights as the Great Powers..." purest bullshit. Then as now, it was all about the Rich getting richer and using the blood and labor of the poor to do it. The kicker of it came down this past spring... when British Petroleum, that ol' devilish offshoot of the British Royal Navy, Bitch-slapped the U.S. Navy in American territorial waters. Guess you kids in Uncle Sams Canoe Club should take those stars

TSA and Pentagoons play same lame blame game

TSA of course saying that people being angry about their Neo-Gestapo (betcha thought I was gonna say "nazi" huh?) thug tactics would cause delays. And not their Thuggish heavy-handed State-Sponsored Terrorism. The people, you see, have no right to resent being treated as criminals with no evidence. Guilty until proven innocent. Then blame anybody who acts any way non-docile or non-subservient for the punishment THEY, the Gesta errrr... Noble Defenders of freedom CHOOSE to inflict on other people. There's a counter-terrorism standard employed and enjoyed by every dictatorship, including the U.S. Military "free" puppet governments, (not just the Nazis, although they're the ones most famous for it) where they would round up local civilians in areas where a "terrorist" attack had occurred and simply execute some of them, and made sure to tell the survivors to blame it on the actions of the Resistance Fighters. That's the TSA tactic. Also, the Pentagon/State Department Gesta tactic for dealing with Wikileaks. Kill the messenger. Never mind that it's not the REVELATION of their many murders and miscellaneous misdemeanors, mayhem and malicious malfeasance that's caused their shared TSA/DoD/DoS/DoJ problems. It's the actual commission of their multiple misdeeds that caused the problem. If they didn't want

In Iraq, “willful killing, torture and enforced disappearance” is a crime

Former Iraq Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz has been sentenced to death by the US Iraqi puppet regime. Pending an automatic appeal, the internationally popular diplomat will hang with other henchmen/assistants of Saddam Hussein for the crimes of "willful killing, torture and enforced disappearance of persons." Do they have the wrong man? Men? Nation? Expeditionary Force? How many consecutive sentences of hangings must the Bush-Obama Team America Junta receive, justice being proportional?

Say it ain’t so…

Oh my. There's been an acknowledgment from the Pentagoons that the Police units of the U.S. Army didn't investigate abuses by Iraqi troops, even when there was plenty of reliable evidence and complaints made. DUH! 7 1/2 years and they get around to figuring that out. Maybe in another couple of decades they'll figure out that the WMDs were never there and that U.S. troops did quite a lot of murder and torture too.So it wasn't a voluntary admission on their part. The Pentagoons are screaming that revelations of their illegal and vicious activities will cause violent retribution. As_Opposed_to_The activities themselves causing retribution for those activities. What's really amazing, the PIGS who do these things and their socially retarded supporters, have their motto displayed prominently that "If you break the commandment, then somebody else should keep the commandment" or variants thereof. What, does not your version of Christian and Jewish values have the built-in What Goes Around Comes Back Around? As thou sowest so also shalt thou reap? The Iraqi people already KNOW that Fallujah was a senseless massacre where the majority of the dead wouldn't possibly be defined as combatants. 20274

Dial-a-BabyKiller service offered by Craigslist

Actually, it was a post offering Body Armor published against C.L. rules (weapons are supposedly prohibited, and according to the Pig Establishment, body armor is an offensive weapon if used by a non-Police criminal, as opposed to the Criminals who make up the Pig Establishment) said he had been a Contractor (Probably a jail guard at one of the Torture errr... "Detention" Centers) aka Mercenary Baby Killer in Iraq. Let's make this abundantly clear, the ones who provide the Support for the Baby-Killing machine are every bit as guilty as the Terroristic Thugs who kick down peoples doors and murder them in their own homes for refusing, at least allegedly, to bow down and worship the U.S. Occupation with much bootlicking and ass-kissing. And every bit as guilty of Torture as the Perverted Uniformed Sex-offenders who run the Torture errr... "Enhanced Interrogation and detention centers". Every Contractor is just as guilty as the Blackwater Goons and the Wackenhut Goons who get their sexual giggles from directing violence against people. The Blackwater and Wackenhut goons get SEXUALLY turned on by Killing Babies and, in my opinion, so does every Cop in the world. And this one, before his posting got flagged, left his Phone

TeaBag Heroin (she’s a Dope) Palin exploiting her kids again…

The latest episode had HER royal lowness being booed on a celebrity dance competition show in which she wasn't a participant, her Daughter Bristol was. Bristol who would rightfully be the Poster Child for "Abstinence only" sex education. Her son Trig she exploits as though she's a loving mom, but would she be as loving and concerned if Trig were NOT guaranteed health care, as so many of the children of the Poor are denied, and she had to go it alone without her Corporate Welfare job as a SpokesLiar for DumFox Noise Nutwerks? Her treatment of her other kids makes the question valid. Her other son, Track, she's holding up as her own personal sacrifice to the War she loves so much. Even saying that Other Moms across America need to sacrifice their sons and daughters lives to the god of war she worships. But, you see, Sacrifice is something you do with something that belongs to YOU. She doesn't own Track. Mighty White of her to decide to have him killed or wounded as a sacrifice to her Political Career. Same as her sacrifice of all the other Mothers Sons in the nations to which she's sending her son,

The Nuke Hysteria “They Stole Our Murder Weapon!”

Waaaaa... NeoCons and NeoConfederates are such whiners. Let's review the history of The Bomb and see how much of the technology was actually developed by "America". Hmmmm... Einstein, Europe, Stockholm, Heidlberg, seems most of the technological jigsaw puzzle pieces were set in place in Other Countries. OK so let's take it a step further. Iraqi insurgents who, so we're told by Our Leaders, were on the verge of a Nuclear Device, which is so devastationally complex, and had been on the receiving end of anti-tank shells that have two-stage explosion, and are the basic design for the IEDs that cut through U.S. body and vehicle armor, supposedly couldn't reverse engineer a weapon invented in their neck of the world, centuries ago. It's called a Bangalore Torpedo and the principle is the same. So they had to be getting the devices smuggled from Iran or Syria, who in turn had bought them from the Soviets, who in turn had stolen the idea from us, who had in turn just used an older design. It was used to cut concertina wire in World War One. Just for instance. 19904

As was long suspected, then reported, and the reporters mocked..

Like when Dr Laura's son was using MySpace to boast of war crimes in which he participated or fantasized about committing, denounced by Ms. Schlesinger and others on the RightWing Lunatic Fringe as being "hacked" onto his account... along with his bits about worshiping Satan... But now it appears there are still more stories coming out of VietRaqiStan of soldiers, good old Red--blooded American Boy Scouts, killing for nothing more than the fun of doing it. But it's true patriot Bradley Manning who's facing a Life Sentence for exposing it, not any of the Murderers. Had there been no war crimes to expose there would have been no exposure. 19890

Generals say “we’ll only resume combat operations in Iraq if..

..the Iraqi people reject our Puppet Dictatorship. Meanwhile we'll keep our bases there to intimidate them into not developing a rebellious attitude, like thinking they're good enough to rule themselves without our intereference. And of course make sure the Iraqi government lives up to the agreement we forced them to sign to give all their oil to Our Great And Noble Oil Corporation Masters. Alle Sieg Heil am das Oil Corporations! HEIL! HEIL! HEIL!" So, if the Iraqi people use that Freedom To Obey and vote for people the Oil Company Pentagon Puppets have forbidden them to elect, the Army is going to go back in and "liberate" them again. And the Corporate Death Squads like Blackwater will continue to patrol without any possibility of ever being prosecuted in U.S. Courts for the murders, tortures and other crimes they commit. And them there Sand N------s better not try to prosecute any Blackwater "employees" either, because that "freedom" America The Corporate Puppet Army gave them doesn't extend to actual, you know, Freedom. Alle Sieg Heil am Prince Erik von Blackwater!
