Osama bin Laden’s books. They could do you more good than they did him.

Last week the CIA decided to declassify the list of books found in Osama bin Laden's last hideout when Seal Team Six made their raid. There were 39 titles, which the press has categorized as heavy on conspiracy theory. That's true, untrue, and unsurprising if you consider the official White House line is that the US does not support illegal coups. These authors beg to differ, including the unimpeachable Noam Chomski. Other investigative standouts include William Blum, Greg Palast, John Perkins. The list did not include publication dates or editions, just author and title. A closer inspection of the list is revealing.   (This is part one of a continuing series.) 43327

Zero Dark Thirty has critics protesting that torture shouldn’t be shown to work, instead of torture being wrong

Protest torture, don't protest Zero Dark Thirty's depiction of torture as working, even if the public account of the hunt for Osama bin Laden holds that it did not. Who's your source for that, the CIA? No doubt countless plenty were tortured elsewhere in the actual narrative. How perverse for human rights groups to oppose torture based on it being ineffectual, instead of inhumane. Do you doubt torture works? Look at poor Bradley Manning, already pleading guilty. You'd think galvanizing the public against the horror of torture would be easier than trying to sell them a lie, that torture isn't fiendishly effective. Remember the inane debate about what constitutes torture? That can be illustrated in less than a second, likewise its effectiveness. What sophistry. This is same patronizing social engineering which moralists envision to contort society to new-age morays expunged of sociopathic ills. Greed, slavery, war, genocide, all work perfectly well. That's the problem

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief "witnesses" against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don't work cheap and b) don't actually work. "They" being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie... Semper... Fi... Bitch) They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of "Freedom". And they're still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit. Any of y'all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez... Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam's

Things to De-Celebrate this National Hate Week

Which is a smack to the back of the head to all those who told us in 1984 that the Police State setup from the BOOK of the same name couldn't possibly happen in America because it was all about Socialist Dystopia and nobody, no not ever, could set up a CAPITALIST dictatorship. God, they're stupid.   But here's what the post 9/11 "patriotism" has gotten us. Eight years of a moron for president, an evil moron but a moron. His crew of more intelligent evil people used the occasion to make it unpatriotic to question their plans to deregulate American industries. We've seen a 9/11 worth of dead Americans every single month due to denial of Health Care. We've seen pollution that al Qa'eda could only hope to inflict on any one small town, done daily and across the nation. We've seen our national surplus turned upside down, and many multiples of the amount of that surplus in debt, due to the Wars started by the aforementioned Moron in response to 9/11. The badly misnamed USA PATRIOT Act is being invoked against Julian Assange and Wikileaks in response to their telling the TRUTH about 9/11 and the aforementioned wars, the moron

Navy Seals Death Squids

It does seem unfair to conclude, after the US special forces operation to hunt and kill Osama bin Laden, that all Navy SEAL teams are death squads, but is it a logical fallacy? No one is now pretending there was any other objective but to kill the al-Qaeda leader and everyone who stood in our path, preferably unarmed. Now the latest revelation is that a duplicate assault team was kept at the ready. That's how many executioners ready? The question becomes, are all Navy Seals trained to kill in cold blood? The answer could lay with the instructors at Fort Benning, the notorious "School of the Americas" where it used to be understood the death squads of South American dictators learned their trade, although now torture is taught at military camps and private contractor schools literally coast to coast, so isn't that the problem? Torture being among other unsavory practices we say we do not do, while simultaneously forbidding revelations to come from Wikileaks. 24273

Yes it was the iconic reaction shot

The White House Situation Room group photo of everyone fixated on the live video feed of Operation Geronimo was "iconic" alright, in composition virtually Alfred Aisenstaedt's original. Your eye is drawn to center right where Hillary Clinton recoils not sure what to think, she's a foil to the uniform enthusiasm. Scanning the background as we read a page, Biden knows they're going to hell, Obama is the everyman caught mid-gasp, he reflects us. The rest are the upraised arm, cheering with ass-kicking glee. In Paris they were watching St. George slay the dragon, puppets no less --how far we've come-- though Punch & Judy would have been analogous enough: a Navy Seals home invasion, Fort Benning School of the Americas style; a night-visioned, take-no-prisoners death squad, riding in on not just the proverbial black helicopters, but apparently a black-budget three-rotor model never yet publicly unveiled, literally, bin Laden was shown it and they had to kill him. 24130

Bin Laden was right, but you knew this already, America is a Godless nation

Lawless and Godless. My stomach has been in a knot all day. I remember feeling this way when we executed Saddam Hussein, by all accounts a brutal despot. We tried him in a kangaroo court, without even the courage to make the audio or transcript public, because he would have ratted us out. Then we had him summarily hung. Now I've no great objection to regicide, I favor it actually when imposed by public coup. At the hands of foreign invaders it's victor's justice, and probably deliberately criminal to humiliate the conquered. Last night a US special forces hunt and kill team shot the unarmed Osama bin Laden and others, in a fire-fight whose casualty ratio was that of a firing squad. Bin Laden's body was immediately disposed the way we taught Argentine and Chilean death squads to do it, disappeared out over the sea. Gone, just like those famous shoes that offended George the Wretched Bush, vaporized in post-incident explosives tests it was said, not kept by any Princeton grad as talisman keepsakes, like for example the bones of Chief Geronimo, the famed Native American resistance leader whose grave was robbed by elder alum Prescott Bush to provide

No America, justice has not been done

This didn't always need explaining-- lynching and body snatching are INJUSTICES. There used to be an understanding of what "taking the law into your own hands" meant. Killing someone outright doesn't bring them to justice, and I'm not alone to assert that killing someone -even after a trial- is premeditated murder. We're not hearing any such voices on the media unfortunately. Even in the days of mob lynching, the crowd once drained of its blood-lust would sober to the crime it committed, often masked. That said, the press has always responded with statements of pitiable glee. In Colorado, even the most gruesome lynchings, race-related and otherwise, prompted congratulatory editorials from the Colorado Springs Gazette, the Rocky Mountain News and the rest. However, political leaders were usually more careful not to be celebrating extra-judicial revenge killing. 24075

With Gaddafi’s TV villain star rising, bin Laden should have seen this coming

I'm sure they would rather have pulled Osama bin Laden from a hole for a 2012 October Surprise, but the US media narrative makers must have figured out that Mumbledore Gaddafi is not proving telegenic enough to upstage the king of Islamic villainy. Now US airstrikes are killing the Libyan dictator's children and grandchildren, we can't let a bogeyman win audience sympathy.   The good news for Pakistanis and Afghans is that US drones now have no reason to stalk their skies and Guantanamo can now release the foot-soldiers who've lost their leader. If "justice has been done" and the perpetrator of 9-11 has been neutralized, then it's over, isn't it? No apparently. Now we're reminded al-Qaeda is much bigger than OBL, and yet we've executed him as if he bore responsibility, AND we're told that the act may prompt retaliatory violence. So it's solved what then? Targeted assassination brings no one to justice, it asserts vengeance and perpetuates the cycle. Which of course was OBL's role all along. 24054

Right Wing “lone wolf” murderers

Their Whoremasters like Sarah Palin and the rest of the DumFox crew still refuse to admit that they urge people to KILL (they have to have other people do it because they're too frightened to murder people themselves). Usually it's male wannabee hitmen like Jared Loughner, Jim Adkisson, von Brunn, Scott Roeder, Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Erik Rudolf, Local Retard Gary Faulkner and the occasional physically female like Babykiller Shawna Forde, and they have a few other things in common. They're usually part of local cults, not exactly "lone wolf" like the Right Wing Hate Media claim. They usually go after people they consider weaklings. And they perceive their Fox News Whoremasters to be speaking literally when they rant and rave and foam at the mouth about a "War" against any form of Non-Fox Thought. Like Sarah Palin urging her demented Disciple Jared Loughner to murder 6 people in Tucson. Lou Dobbs urging Shawna Forde and her crew to Murder (yet another) nine year old American Child. If Gary Faulkner had succeeded in killing some Pakistan citizens, most likely including children, in his Rambo-inspired fantasy quest to take out the ALREADY DEAD Osama bin Laden, who among the Hate-Mongers would

Warmonger Hillary says “Taliban made wrong choice”…Wikileaks disproved it

Part of the reason she wants Herod to serve up John Baptists errr Julians head on a silver charger. She was at the Asia Conference, telling the Taliban they must Bow before Her Imperial Majesty, or else... and that in 2001 they had made a "Wrong Choice" by "defying the international community and refusing to hand over al Qa'eda". She was Lying Through Her Teeth in other words. Wikileaks merely confirmed what the Bush and now Obama administrations have been denying for 9 years, the Taliban HAD offered to deliver Osama bin Laden to an international tribunal at the Hague. 23007

Has Faulkner bin beatin’ his old lady?

Who knows? Gary Faulkner will undoubtedly get more Due Process from Colorado's courts (Go ahead, Gary, THANK us "bleeding heart do-gooder Liberals" for not just turning over Due Process meekly and without protest to your Fascist Whore-lords) than he was willing to give Osama bin Dead_for_8_years. Which is more to the point, but if the un-named by reporters female who was alleged to have been assaulted by him (and given more than one injury) is his wife and he did smack her around, Mrs Faulkner, forget that life insurance policy you're waiting to collect, ditch his crazy ass. It ain't worth it, baby. Meanwhile, he made some cryptic statements back in June about "Wait until August, then you'll see". August ended a month and a half ago and the most anybody has said about Osama is that stupid faked up picture the F.B.I. tried to push off on the rest of the world. And an admission, once it was shown to be a retouched picture of a Spanish member of parliament, that they don't have a single picture of Osama from anytime in the last 8 years. Almost 9 years now. So, Mr Stupid Crazoid Faulkner, how the hell were you intending to know

Twin Towers “christian mecca” according to Idolatrous TeaTards

I'd been hearing that for the past (few) years from preachers, one of my pastors, gone almost thirty years now called them "Hellevangelists" but they've been saying that the Twin Towers were attacked because they were a religious symbol of Christian America. False. They were a trade exposition, a massive mall where you could stop at the International equivalent of Yankee Candle and buy an entire nations economic output, then stroll over to Starbucks and buy Ethiopian Coffee... ALL of it. The "Moneychangers in the Temple" story leaps to mind. Only instead of the Temple being turned into a marketplace and den of thieves, the Den of Thieves has been posthumously turned into The Temple. But what are they worshiping in the Temple of Money? Newt Gingrich made minor headlines declaring that the Towers were America's Christian Mecca. His preachers convinced him, I guess. I guess he'll also be happy to know that they've been given the Divine Anointing of Prophecy to say where the Million Pounds Of Iraqi Nerve Gas are Hidden and of course where and how to find Osama bin Hidin' 19627

Balloon boy, Osama Hunter, now… Crocodile Sitting…

From the "boy trapped in runaway balloon" but actually with full knowledge of his parents hiding in the garage, to Faulkner taking his Gweat Big Scawy Wifle to Pakistan 'cause on account of he was gonna shoot him a Rag-Head, wouldn't matter which one because even the U.S. Government doesn't have a real picture of him, he wuz jes' gonna pop a cap in some Sand-nigger... and now, Man bitten while attempting to sit on a crocodile... Some people will do anything to try to force their 15 minutes. According to the story, the 36 year old Australian man was ejected from a pub for "being too drunk" SAYYYYY WHUT? Somebody tossed from an AUSSIE bar for being drunk? It's a sure sign of the Impending Apocalypse. 18694

Osama bin You

Spanish lawmaker Gaspar Llamazares doesn't accept US apologies for using his likeness in an artist rendition of what the CIA warns its bogeyman Osama bin Laden may look like. The leftist politician finds it hard to believe it's a simple mistake his mug appears on the latest wanted poster, and wonders what might have been the result if a less-known face had been used. It's funny enough to laugh at the perceived ineptitude of American intelligence agencies, until you're stopped at the airport, bundled off to a black site to be tortured, or find yourself a lightening rod for drone missile strikes. 13915

Osama on Obama

The usual channels have yielded another video from Osama bin Laden, wherein a still photo of the al-Qaeda godfather accompanies an audio "statement to the American people," purportedly recorded June 4. Here is the full English translation of the 10 minute tape. First, two questions. 8985
