The End Game: Why Terri Schiavo must die
" What is the motive behind the restaurateur-turned-physical therapist-turned-nurse who passionately pursues his wife’s death? Many wonder. Could Michael Schiavo be a pawn, a pawn in a much larger game being played for much higher stakes?

"Enter one
George Felos (foreground, right, with Michael Schiavo), a kind of weird, yoga practicing guru lawyer, who is fixated on helping people die. Felos, a board member of Hospice, has visions of dollars, ideation that features book signings and movie rights once Terri is dead. Not to mention all the fame and fortune that will accrue to the man who finally overturns the law that protects the handicapped, the elderly, and the terminally ill’s opportunity to live until they die – by natural means. "

Schiavo lawyer: New Age mystic
"Instead of a lawyerly estate, his home looks like hippie villa USA, complete with crimson couch, bright green carpeting and a living room wall painted neon blue, reported the St. Petersburg Times. When he's not stirring up theta waves or practicing yoga, he invites friends over to chant 'I am that I am … I am that I am …' while he bangs out a tune on his harmonium."

Collusion: Michael Schaivo's lawyer, George J. Felos
"Man 'finds' Wife unconscious. Man keeps Wife unconscious. Man gets malpractice money for Wife. Man wants Wife's money. Man wants Wife dead so Man can have money. Man gets Lawyer. Lawyer is/was Hospice Board Member. Lawyer promises Man that Wife will die at the Hospice..."

Terri's website More news on the fight for Terri and other disabled people.

Frenchmen say Guantanamo detention was like Hell
"Two Frenchmen described as hell Friday their more than two years of detention in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, their lawyer said after meeting them for the first time. Mourad Benchellali and Nizar Sassi had concerns 'about the interrogation techniques and medical experiments' at Guantanamo, Jacques Debray said outside the headquarters of the DST domestic intelligence service where the two men were being questioned."

UK MPs: National ID card plan 'badly thought out'
"The first ID cards carrying biometric data, such as fingerprints and iris scans, will appear in 2007 and the Home Office wants them made compulsory by 2013. The official committee report says ID cards can make a significant contribution to fighting crime and coordinating access to public services. "

Joseph Sobran: The Amendment Strategy
"A state court — in Massachusetts, of course — has declared that the Fourteenth Amendment requires the legislature to certify homosexual unions as marriages. Equal protection of the laws, you know. Time for conservatives to swing into action! As usual in such cases, they chose the worst possible strategy. Amending the Constitution is cumbersome. It requires a consensus that in this matter no longer exists. And trying to get a super majority behind a controversial cause is about the least efficient use of political resources one can imagine, when getting a mere majority is hard enough. "


Challenging Bush, Kerry accepts nomination
"Challenging President Bush by declaring that 'strength is more than tough words,' Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry plunged into the general election campaign aimed at convincing millions of undecided voters that his time in Vietnam makes him the right commander in a time of war."

"For his part, the president, trailing slightly in polls, told battleground state voters that when it comes to choosing a president, 'results matter.'"

John Kerry's medals? The grand poseur
"When Kerry came back to the states, he wasted no time in trashing the very men who were still fighting in the jungle, risking life and limb to make sure it was only the enemy fighter that was killed. Not so for John Kerry who killed indiscriminately. In his own words: 'I committed the same kinds of atrocities as thousands of others in that I shot in free-fire zones, fired .50-caliber machine(gun) bullets, used harass-and-interdiction fire, joined in search-and-destroy missions and burned villages.' ("Meet the Press" NBC 1971 published by the Baltimore Sun 2004)"

Whether it's Bush or Kerry, Israel wins
"Writing in the Brown Students for Israel publication Perspectives: An Israel Review, Kerry says: 'My first trip to Israel made real for me all I'd believed about Israel. I was allowed to fly an air force jet from the Ovda Airbase. It was then that Israeli insecurity about narrow borders became very real to me. In a matter of minutes, I came close to violating the airspace of Egypt, Jordan and Syria. From that moment on, I felt as Israelis do: The promise of peace must be secure before the Promised Land is a secure margin of land.'"

Dov Zakheim and the 9-11 conspiracy
" In a document called "Rebuilding America's Defenses" published by The American Enterprise's 'Project for a New American Century,' SPC International executive, Dov Zakheim, called for a 'Pearl Harbor' type of incident being necessary to foster the frame of mind needed for the American public to support a war in the Middle East that would politically and culturally reshape the region."

Fine for anti-Jew-attack faker
"A French woman who lied about being the victim of a vicious anti-Semitic attack - a claim that sparked nationwide outrage - has been handed a four-month suspended sentence."


Edwards delivers upbeat message
"Sen. John Edwards, summoning all his skills as a trial lawyer and a populist, made an impassioned case for Sen. John Kerry on Wednesday, hailing him as a battle-tested veteran ready to be commander in chief and a man who could restore economic hope and opportunity. 'Hope is on the way,' Edwards declared to a cheering Democratic National Convention. The heart of Edwards' speech was the same theme he sounded throughout his primary campaign, that "we still live in a country where there are two different Americas,' one for people who 'are set for life,' the other for 'most Americans who live from paycheck to paycheck.'" (RN 24/7: Upbeat? How about hypocritical and intellectually dishonest? Edwards provokes class hatred with his "two different Americas" spiel, but he is the junior partner of the wealthiest presidential ticket in the nation's history, worth over $1 billion. In other words, they're members of the former category, better known as "limousine liberals." And the irony is that they are liberal not with their own money [the last we heard the Heinz-Kerrys weren't selling any of their--her--half dozen mansions valued at around $30 million, to help the homeless] , but with the money of the American taxpayers; i.e., those "who live from paycheck to paycheck." And yet the poor fools never learn.)  

John Edwards, his land of OZ
"John Edwards says there are two Americas. He is right. There is the America most Americans live in and then there is the imaginary America that Edwards and all those delegates to the Democrat convention live in.  In the movie ''The Wizard of Oz'' little Dorothy goes from the black and white world she lived in, to the colorful world of Oz. At the Democrat convention John Edwards takes us from the REAL America to a dark black America he Al Franken and Michael Moore imagine."

Dems complain Sharon prefers Bush, call on Sharon to improve relations with Kerry
"There is a growing dissatisfaction in the U.S. Democratic Party and in John Kerry's campaign headquarters over the Israeli government's attitude toward them this election season."

Major parties share one aim: to squash independents
"There is a silent crisis in American democracy that could change the face of our republic and disenfranchise a significant plurality of voters. More insidious than the U.S. Patriot Act, it threatens the very basis of democratic process. It is the coordinated attack by the two major parties on the principles of political reform and the rights of independent voters." (RN 24/7: While the information in this op-ed piece is important, we cannot get behind the group whose spokesman wrote it. There is no question that third party and other independently minded Americans have a much tougher go of it than Republicrats, do it's good to see a column addressing the issue. However, when we visited its website, we discovered that while it makes a pitch to those with "diverse views on the political spectrum – left, center, right and everywhere in between," it didn't take long to discover its real goal--elect the pro-abortion, pro "gay rights" presidential candidate, Ralph Nader and others of his ilk. For example, they have a "Lobby the media for fair coverage of Ralph Nader," but nothing similar is to be seen in support of the right to fair coverage for the numerous other "outsider" presidential candidates running, such as those of the
American Party, the Constitution Party, the Providential Party , to name a few. Everything else on the site appears to have no other purpose than to feign a genuine non-partisan identity and to gather in the money and support of those gullible enough to buy into it.)

MUST-SEE VIDEO: Group delivers "WMD" to Tucson Federal Building to show vulnerability of border
"American Border Patrol delivered a 'smuggled' simulated Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) to the front entrance of the Tucson Federal Building after skirting around a Border Patrol Check point near Sierra Vista. As the team approached the building, a federal officer emerged and asked them not to video tape the area. He asked for their IDs, but did not inquire as to what was in the backpack."


Changing of the guard at the Democratic convention -
"Delegates to the Democratic National Convention witnessed a symbolic passing of the torch Tuesday with the party's old lion, Sen. Ted Kennedy, and its promising new cub, Barack Obama (right) , both condemning what they view as the divisive tactics of opposition Republicans while holding open the hope of a better future under John Kerry. The 72-year-old Kennedy, scion of America's most celebrated political family, assumed the dais in his hometown and offered a scalding assessment of President Bush, charging that the administration broke trust with the world after the 9-11 attacks and that Bush 'squandered the enormous goodwill that flowed to America.'" (RN 24/7: Notice that the Democratic attacks on Bush, 9-11 and the Iraq War ignore the importance of US/Israeli relations that were pivotal in what transpired, including the shedding of US blood to protect the Zionist nation. The reason for this avoidance is simple: No matter what other changes--largely cosmetic--would follow a Kerry victory in November, the new administration will adopt a Middle East policy quite in line with that of current one, as is evident from this Jerusalem Post article posted on the "Internet Town Meeting" page of the
official Kerry/Edwards website. So, in this context there definitely won't be any changing of the guard at the White House.)

Liberals have hijacked the Democratic Party
"Yes, America is divided. Liberalism Vs Traditionalism. It all comes down to liberal secularism (anti-religion, faith, God) Vs. Traditionalism (pro-religion, faith, God). Liberals are 'pro-choice' when it comes to abortion, same-sex marriage, and social-economic welfare Traditionalism is pro-life, marriage between a man and a woman, and less government, less taxes and more freedom for the people – the working taxpayers, those who accept individual responsibility, and accountability.¼" (RN 24/7: True on all counts, but this isn't exactly breaking news. Of far more significance--and far less reported--is the continuing control of the Republican Party by liberals calling themselves "moderates" and "compassionate conservatives," first and foremost amongst them being the fraud now occupying the Oval Office.)

If Gaza exit equals Holocaust, is Jewish terror next?
"Just what such an attack might mean was set out by lawmaker Ehud Yatom, a member of the hawkish wing of the Likud and a strong opponent of the disengagement plan. In 1984, Yatom was a commander of the Shin Bet manhunt that seized members of the "Jewish Underground" of religious militants just before the group was to mount a multiple bombing on the sacred Mount.
"If an attack were to harm the Muslim shrines of Al Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, the result would pit 'the entire Muslim world against the state of Israel and against the Western world, a war of religions,' Yatom said. 'With all of the pain and suffering they have caused, today's terrorist attacks would be nothing compared to what could happen, it could even mean World War III.'"(RN 24/7: Anyone who thinks he's exaggerating about the possible Muslim retaliation for such a act needs to take a look at the warning issued by the
World Islamic Congress. For more about this developing story, see our coverage of July 26.)

Charley Reese: A president, not a date
"You are making a mockery of self-government if you allow your vote to be influenced by concerns for a foreign country. And yes, I'm directing this to the Israel-first crowd, both Jew and Christian. The election in November is for the president of the United States, not the deputy prime minister of Israel." (RN 24/7: Well put by Charley Reese, but he needs to have a long sit-down with the other Charley Reese, the goofy one who promotes John Kerry's candidacy in
Vote for a man, not a puppet. Kerry not a puppet? Come, on, wake up and smell the coffee, Charley. Mr. "Dude, where's my charisma" wouldn't be the presidential candidate of major party if he wasn't a puppet! None of the controlled major television networks would give John Kerry's candidacy five minutes of air time if he wasn't a card-carrying member of the Eastern Establishment. Like President George W. Bush, he moves wherever his puppeteers want him to go and don't ever forget it! Oh, and one other thing: Those puppeteers may include his domineering wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry. Q: What husband do you know that would let his wife retain the name of her previous husband? A: One who is a millionaire married to a billionaire.) 


Ready for martial law? Oh, it can't happen here?
"This nation is very much prepared to invoke martial law. The questions are only what will trigger it and when it will occur. Since our military is aware that this could happen and US soldiers expressed revulsion at the idea of quelling civil disturbance by firing on their fellow Americans, those whom they swore to defend and protect, then the government has imported foreign mercenaries who have absolutely no qualms about doing that for which they were hired. Why would our own government do this to Americans? Very simply because it i
s the only way to take control of people whose delusion of freedom will one day burst and they will be ready to revolt. They sleep long and hard in the quiet dream world of delusion about the America that was, but someday they will wake up. ¼"

Oshkosh police conduct door-to-door gun confiscations
"Following the shooting of an Oshkosh police officer Saturday night, area residents were forced from their homes, their lawful firearms being confiscated by police. The Oshkosh Police Department's Special Weapons and Tactics Unit responded to the area, with a K-9 police dog in pursuit of the perpetrator who was reported to have fled on foot. "

Red alert, FEMA camps and martial law "If the nation escalates to ' red alert,' which is the highest in the color-coded readiness against terror, you will be assumed by authorities to be the enemy if you so much as venture outside your home, the state's anti-terror czar says. 'This state is on top of it,' said Sid Caspersen, New Jersey's director of the office of counter-terrorism.¼A red alert would also tear away virtually all personal freedoms to move about and associate. 'Red means all noncritical functions cease," Caspersen said. 'Noncritical would be almost all businesses, except health-related.'"

Clinton speech rouses passions at convention "On a night of nostalgia, Democrats wistful for the White House joyously relived the glory days of Bill Clinton and his mastery of American politics. John Kerry should hope to do so well Thursday night. The opening night of the Democratic convention brought a one-two punch of political stars - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband. She introduced him as "the last great Democratic president," and by every measure, the adoring audience thunderously agreed." (RN 24/7: After "Bill Clinton gave his speech, a Democrat referred to him as "one of the great orators of modern times." One of the great demagogues of modern times is more like it. Monday night's performance was classic Clinton: long on emotionally-charged rhetoric, but short on an honest approach to this issues and one that seemed to be as much about himself as it was about nominee-to-be John Kerry. The article's title accurately, if unwittingly, notes Clinton's stock-on-trade when it says he "rouses passions," which is precisely the trait that defines the demagogue.) Convention Observations -- Bill & Hill "She referred to Bill as a former president, but not as her husband.¼He referred to Hillary as his senator, but not as his wife." Ridge: "multiple layers of security" for Dems' convention "Some have begun calling the host city of the Democratic Party convention Fortress Boston for the unprecedented level of security. Authorities say they have no information of specific threats to attack the party conventions but are convinced that al-Qaeda is planning an attack ahead of the US elections."

Israel expands West Bank settlements
"Months after Ariel Sharon announced his dramatic plan to pull Jewish settlers out of Gaza, portraying it as a sacrifice for peace, the government is grabbing more land for West Bank settlements. Israeli peace groups and Palestinian officials say thousands of homes are under construction in the main settlements, in addition to an expansion of Jewish outposts that are illegal under Israeli law. Mr. Sharon has promised the US he will dismantle the outposts, which are usually clusters of containers or trailer homes serviced by government-built roads, but has failed to do so." (RN 24/7: Nothing new, is it? The Zionist "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine" mentality in spades. Look, they spelled it out very clearly for uninitiated back in 1961 with the song,
Exodus, which begins: "This land is mine/God gave this land to me!" Lyrics courtesy of the Christian Zionist crooner, Pat Boone. And while on the general subject, please see Christian Zionism: Whose land is it anyway?)


Israeli says blowing up Dome of Rock is “worthy act"
"'Blowing up the Dome of the Rock is a worthy act,' Yehuda Etzion (below, left), one of the leaders of the Movement of the
Temple Mount Loyalists and a former convicted member of the 'Jewish underground,' has told Army Radio this [Sunday] morning. Etzion's words came as a response to Public Security Minister Tzachi Hanegbi's comments on Channel Two's Meet the Press, by which, 'The prospects that Jewish extremists could carry out an attack on the Temple Mount in order to prevent the disengagement plan from being implemented are growing.'" Israel warns of Jewish terrorist attack on Al-Aqsa  A Muslim view of the same story. ( RN24/7: It's interesting to note the language. While the Islamic site speaks of a potential "Jewish terrorist attack," the Israelis avoid using the word "terrorist" altogether. But terrorism is terrorism, no matter who perpetrates it, whether it be a Palestinian blowing up a Tel Aviv pizzeria or an Israeli bent on doing a little "urban renewal" atop Jerusalem's Temple Mount. The difference? Since the Dome of the Rock is revered by Muslims as one of the holiest places on earth, its destruction would make all the Middle East fighting that has gone before it look, in comparison, like nothing more than a schoolyard scuffle.  Also see, Building the Third Temple and demolishing the Dome of the Rock.)

Pentagon memo reveals bugging
"When the Bush administration took over the Pentagon's beleaguered inspector general office in 2002, officials found something startling: The director's office, at some point, had been electronically bugged." (RN 24/7: And to think that although this had been known for years, it finally gets reported just as the Democrats are beginning their convention. Wow, what a coincidence!)

U.S. troops use cash to woo Iraqis
"Cash has become the U.S. military's first line of defense in some parts of Iraq, where U.S. soldiers are distributing money to encourage good will and to counter their enemies' offers of money to unemployed Iraqis willing to attack Americans, officers say here." (RN 24/7: "Here you go, Ibrahim. Hey, not to worry, there's plenty where this came from, all courtesy of American taxpayers. Okay? So just don't hurt me." Our suggestion? Bring the troops home so they won't need to pay people not to kill them!)

Patrick Buchanan: The drumbeat to dump the veep
"Asked if he was thinking of dumping Vice President Cheney, President Bush is said to have laughed aloud. He is right to do so. For this is a game concocted by pundits with other agendas than his re-election." (RN 24/7: Memo to Patrick Buchanan--Who cares what George Bush does or doesn't do. His re-election is no more to be worked for or celebrated by authentic patriotic, pro-life Christians than the election of challenger and fellow Bonesman John Kerry? So why waste a column pretending that it is, when you could be doing something to bring about constructive change in Washington instead of beating the neo-con's drum for them? It's time to wake up!)


Do food makers want to kill you?
"Freedom can stand or fall on issues large (wars, depressions, natural disasters) or small (a hundred thousands regulations that manage our daily life). Regulations on food labeling count among the small issues. It is a tricky issue for market advocates because bad label might actually count as breach of contract and thereby require legal intervention of some sort.
¼At issue is the theoretical presumption itself. Can market forces manage issues of food label or must regulators be involved? Many politicos on Capitol Hill are under the impression that food manufacturers are neglectfully poisoning the 6-11 million Americans who have food allergies by sneakily failing to point out on labels that the food contains deadly ingredients. So here we have the ultimate paranoid-socialist fantasy at work: business rakes in profits through fraud while people die!

Iraq hostage crisis spirals
"Two Pakistanis working for a Kuwait-based company are feared kidnapped as Iraq's hostage crisis deepened, with at least 22 countries affected by the wave of abductions. "

Christians flee "liberated" Iraq
"'We thought the Americans were going to bring us freedom and democracy,' stated a 31-year-old Iraqi identified as Robert. 'Instead, they are promoting Islam.'"

Largest Socialist group backs Kerry
"The Democratic Socialists of America Political Action Committee is officially urging its members to work for the election of John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election.

Mossad's litany of blunders
"A former Mossad head, Danny Yatom, told Israel television last week that Mossad activities 'make the headlines whenever it trips' but that its successes, unknown to the public, remained formidable."


Kerry: I'll protect Israel better "I can be more effective with the accountability of the Saudis and other Arab countries," putative Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry told the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz. "I'll do a better job of reducing the threat to Israel and the rest of the world." (RN 24/7: And you can take his word on that or his name ain't Kohn ! But what can he promise to do that President George W. "Anything you say, Ari" Bush hasn't done? Promise to attack Iran and throw in Syria and Yemen for good measure? But, as the following article shows, Kerry is right to be very concerned about how his campaign is playing with the lox and bagel crowd.)

Bush hopes to sway Jewish voters
"Cameron Kerry, John Kerry's brother who converted to Judaism two decades ago, said the campaign is well aware that Republicans are targeting Jews. 'We're playing catch up.'" (RN 24/7: Speaking of Kerry's wooing of votes from various religious bodies, a while back a photo began being circulated showing him with the late Church of Satan founder Anton Lavey. The photo is clearly
faked, and Alex Jones believes he knows what's behind the hoax. By the way, a Muslim quipped that, had the story been true, it would then be really appropriate to call America "The Great Satan" if Kerry got elected!)

Most effective way to prevent terrorism is missing from 9-11 report, Libertarians say
The report by the September 11 commission is missing one obvious way the U.S. government could reduce the chance of another terrorist attack, Libertarians say: Quit meddling in foreign nations." (RN 24/7: George Washington on the dangers of foreign entanglements.)

Sharon to Chirac: France still anti-Jewish
"Israel's leader has rebuffed an attempt by French President Jacques Chirac to tamp down a public feud between the two over alleged French anti-Semitism."


Halliburton: the profits of war "Halliburton has become a byword for the cozy links between the White House and Texan big business. But how did the company run in the 90s by [Vice President] Dick Cheney secure a deal that guaranteed it millions in profit every time the US military saw action?" Halliburton ignores sanctions "Halliburton is being investigated by a grand jury for possibly violating federal sanctions while Cheney was chief executive of the company by doing business in Iran. That hasn't stopped Cheney from repeatedly sticking his foot in his mouth. On the campaign trail, Cheney has been saying that Iran has ties to al-Qaeda and some of the 9-11 hijackers. But when Cheney was chief executive of Halliburton he wasn't concerned about that.¼"

9-11 Commission: Deadlier attacks possible
"The bipartisan commission that investigated the Sept. 11 attacks concluded in its unanimous final report on Thursday that the attacks "were a shock but they should not have come as a surprise." It warned that without a historic restructuring of the nation's intelligence agencies and a new emphasis on diplomacy, the United States would leave itself open to an even more catastrophic attack."

Reading between the lines: What's covered in the 9-11 report? What's covered up?
"Business as usual. That's the message of today's 9-11 Commission report. No one is held accountable for anything. President Bush, the commander in chief, left the nation's borders unprotected—even though both he and predecessor Bill Clinton had been warned over a three-year period of a possible attack by planes. "


Response to Dennis Prager and WND: Opposing Zionism is not a sin
"It seems that Mr. Prager is totally unfamiliar with the partnership of Zionism and Nazism prior, during, and following World War II, and the subsequent reign of terror Israel perpetrated on innocent Palestinians to drive them from their lands and to exterminate them. Israel drew first blood, and Prager relies on the ancient biblical justification of Jews as the "chosen people" and the modern state of Israel as "the promised land." Isn’t this precisely the same method of argument he himself refutes as God and religion being employed to authorize killing and terror?"

War funds dwindling, GAO warns
"The U.S. military has spent most of the $65 billion that Congress approved for fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and is scrambling to find $12.3 billion more from within the Defense Department to finance the wars through the end of the fiscal year, federal investigators said yesterday." (RN 24/7: Simple solution--Bring the troops home!)

False campaign ads: legal lying
"Here's a fact that may surprise you: candidates have a legal right to lie to voters just about as much as they want. That comes as a shock to many voters. After all, consumers have been protected for decades from false ads for commercial products. Shouldn't there be "truth-in-advertising" laws to protect voters , too?"


A fair look at Fahrenheit 9-11
"Michael Moore is an unabashed leftist. A former editor of the radical journal Mother Jones, Moore has made a handsome fortune peddling pseudo-populism of a distinctively socialist flavor. His previous work includes the execrable Bowling for Columbine, a largely fact-free cinematic harangue against the right to armed self-defense and those of us who defend it.
¼ Curiously, Moore — who gathered a great deal of material about Mr. Bush’s failure-strewn business career — didn’t mention the fact that Bush, like John Kerry, is a member of the immensely influential order of Skull & Bones. Nor did Moore mention the fact that Bonesmen provided crucial financial aid and business connections at key points in George W. Bush’s career. Moore provides a remarkable clip of the president addressing a white-tie gathering: "This is an impressive crowd — the haves and the have mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base." This provocative remark offers a certain titillation, but does nothing to inform the untutored viewer as to the nature and purposes of the real Power Elite."

Bushspeak psyops: Manipulating mass consciousness
"In search of support for shaky WMD charges against Saddam, Bush found the torture issue and put it on the front burner in his January 2003 State of the Union address: 'This dictator who is assembling the world’s most dangerous weapons has already used them on whole villages, leaving thousands of his own citizens dead, blind or disfigured. Iraqi refugees tell us how forced confessions are obtained by torturing children while their parents are made to watch. International human rights groups have catalogued other methods used in the torture chambers of Iraq: electric shock, burning with hot irons, dripping acid on the skin, mutilation with electric drills, cutting out tongues and rape.'"

British motorist finds top secret terror dossier
"Britain was yesterday reeling from two humiliating failures in its war on terror with a bungled disaster response exercise and the discovery of a top secret counter-terrorism dossier lying on a public road."


Patriot Act gives Bush power to cancel elections

If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.

--President George W. Bush

"Political analyst Al Martin writes that the legal mechanism and contingency plan for canceling US elections is already in place. 'The contingency plan in question is the Continuity-Of-Government plan (COG), first drafted in 1949 under the Truman regime shortly after the Soviet Union detonated its first atomic weapon,' Martin explains. In addition to COG, 'Bush has this power under Patriot I Act with the expansion of his authority under the War Powers Act of 1947, since, it should be remembered, a declared state of national emergency already exists in the United States at present¼'" Photo from of The Onion

Lobbying for pro-Israel candidates
"Former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who is pro-Palestinian, is trying to get re-elected, and once again there is debate over the power of the pro-Israeli lobby in Washington."


What happens in the event of a terror attack on the 2004 Presidential Election?
"If the Bush Administration's intelligence can be believed, the 2004 presidential election, or the related democratic processes associated with the election, have been targeted by terrorists. Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge has repeatedly said, 'Al Qeada is moving forward with plans to carry out a large-scale attack in the United States aimed to disrupt our democratic process.'¼Bottom line: there is no such proposal. In fact, it is not legally possible because there are no laws giving the president, or anyone else, such authority. A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security said, 'DHS is not looking into a contingency plan.' National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, the highest administration official to address the matter, said 'I don't know where the idea that there might be some postponement of elections comes from.'" (RN 24/7: Memo to John Dean, author of this column--The fact of the matter is that DeForest B. Soaries, head the federal Election Assistance Commission, in April contacted both Ridge and Rice concerning what should be done in the case of a terrorist attack. It's would be interesting to know when Rice made that statement, because Soaries queried her about it in April, so after that she would be very clear on where the idea originated. Oh, and by the way, General Tommy Franks that the Constitution itself might be scrapped another 9-11 type event occurred. That is, such an attack could be used as a justification to impose Martial law .)

Charley Reese: Where is this 'safer' America?
"Saddam Hussein, as bad a fellow as he is, was never a threat to the United States. He had no stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. His army was dilapidated. He was a secular socialist and despised religious fanatics, and they despised him. There was, in fact, no connection between Saddam and al-Qaeda, and no connection at all with the attack on Sept. 11, 2001."

Maryland activists want e-voting receipts
"Some states, including Maryland, acted swiftly to update their systems. Many other states are making the change more slowly, moving county by county or even precinct by precinct.  Some of that hesitancy stems from the fact that federal officials have not yet developed uniform methods for how the machines would handle recounts and other routine election hiccups, and they are unlikely to come before November.  That, opponents say, could sow chaos and confusion in the voting process if a candidate demanded a recount."



UK: Butler Report on WMD was watered down to protect Blair
"Downing Street secured vital changes to the Butler Report before its publication, watering down an explicit criticism of Tony Blair and the way he made the case for war in the House of Commons. The Telegraph has established that the disagreement between No 10 and Lord Butler's inquiry team centered on a passage in an original draft of the report about Mr. Blair's statement to MPs in September 2002."

Iraqi Sunni clerics: US occupiers must leave
"Sunni clerics have called on US forces to pull out of Iraq and stop 'hiding behind the so-called multinational forces' or face a growing resistance movement."

CIA sends terror experts to tell small towns of risk
"The Central Intelligence Agency has begun a series of terrorism briefings for state and local law enforcement personnel, for the first time dispatching counterterrorism experts to cities and small towns to warn of the possibility of an attack by Al Qaeda this year, government officials said this week." (RN 24/7: Courtesy of those good folks down at the Office of Panic and Hysteria.)

Deliver us from Sean Hannity
"But if Reagan was so 'good,' and Clinton was so 'evil,' then why does Hannity continually blame Clinton for appeasing Saddam Hussein when he admits that 'during the 1980s the Reagan administration did business with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq' (p. 94)? But the larger question is this: If Saddam Hussein was evil and a threat to the United States, then why wasn’t he 'taken out' by Ronald Reagan or George Bush I? If, as Hannity maintains, 'Clinton’s refusal to seize Osama bin Laden is another failure that endangered Americans' (p. 189), then why is not Reagan’s and Bush senior’s refusal to seize Saddam Hussein an even greater failure that endangered Americans?"

"Catholic"-Jewish meeting results in "anti-Semitism" statement
"In what is being hailed as a major advance in Catholic-Jewish relations, high-level Catholic authorities and leading rabbis have issued a joint statement condemning 'anti-Semitism in all its forms, including anti-Zionism.'" (RN 24/7: More proof here of the hostile takeover that has taken place within the Roman Catholic Church. The fact is that the Catholic Church has rejected Zionism as directly as is possible. To cite but one highly memorable example, in 1904, Theodor Herzl, widely acknowledged as the "Father of Modern Zionism," had an audience in Rome with the sainted pope, Pius X (right), at which time he asked the Vatican's blessing for the Jewish migration to Palestine. According to Herzl's diary entry, Pius "answered in a stern and categorical manner: 'We are unable to favor this movement. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem – but we could never sanction it. The ground of Jerusalem, if it were not always sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of the Church, I cannot answer you otherwise. The Jews have not recognized Our Lord; therefore, we cannot recognize the Jewish people.'" Thus was and is the true mind of the Church, a stand that cannot be revoked by anyone until the Jews recognize the Messiah, because it is founded squarely upon Catholic dogma, which can never change.

Around the world on July 3 Zionists and friends of Israel celebrated the centenary of the death of Theodor Herzl, who is often called the "Father of modern Zionism." While Herzl may well have approved early manifestations of Zionist collaboration with the Nazis some 30 years after his death, since it involved the migration of German Jews to Palestine, it is less clear what he would have thought of later efforts, which included the deliberate Zionist abandonment of Jews in concentration camps or of the recent incredible revelations concerning Reinhard Heydrich, the head of Hitler's dreaded secret police, revelations that point to a hidden link well-nigh unfathomable, but real.


Heydrich's widow: 'Jews should be good Nazis'
"I came back to Germany in the early 1980's, having been assigned there in my capacity as American Intelligence Officer. A mutual friend had given me the name of Abi Melzer, a German-Israeli who was founding the first independent Jewish magazine since the war.

"I contacted him and accepted his invitation to write for the magazine. After some time, I became its editor-in-chief. I must admit, that much of the work for
Semit was done by Melzer because my job did not leave me enough time to run a tight ship. In order to offset my time limitations, I decided to make my own written contributions as interesting and unique as possible.

Among the tasks I took upon myself was the decision to research the alleged Jewish ancestry of Hitler's super-Nazi, Reinhardt Heydrich.

Zionist gun control: From job outsourcer Feinstein!
"First, let me be clear about this extremely important point: Israel is a foreign sovereign nation, and not a religion. Second, Zionism is not Judaism; Zionism is the Rothschild-led and communist international banking cartel’s intent for a Jewish state, today the nation of Israel, created for the sole purpose of leading international imperialism to a one-world government domination now recognized and described as 'The New World Order.'"

"And anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism. Zionist 'Jews' worked side by side with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi murderers and torturers to help exterminate millions of helpless Jewish men, women and children."

Zionism and anti-Semitism: A strange alliance through history
"Dr. Joachim Prinz, a German Zionist rabbi who subsequently emigrated to the U.S., where he became vice-chairman of the World Jewish Congress and a leader in the World Zionist Organization, published in 1934 a book Wir Juden (We Jews) to celebrate Hitler’s so-called German Revolution and the defeat of liberalism."

The modern relevance of Nazi-Zionist cooperation
"Six months after Hitler came to power, the Zionist Federation of Germany
(by far the largest Zionist group in the country) submitted a detailed
memorandum to the new government that reviewed German-Jewish relations
and formally offered Zionist support in "solving" the vexing "Jewish
question." The first step, it suggested, had to be a frank recognition
of fundamental national differences."

Hitler, Nazism, and Zionism
"Hitler and other Nazi leaders sought to move Jews to Palestine, but were rebuffed by Zionists. According to a Jewish Satmar scholar: 'While the mass genocide of European Jewry took place, several plans were arranged to rescue as many Jews as possible. Rabbi Michael Ber Wisemandel and Joel Brand, among numerous others, arranged with silent approval from Hitler and German SS leaders, plans for the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of Jews, especially Hungarian, from Nazi persecution.'"

He insists the “matter was thoroughly reviewed” by a Naval Court of Inquiry, later in 1967. However, that inquiry was a whitewash. It’s time for McCain to right this wrong."

ANTI-KERRY AD MISLEADS ON "lACI PETERSON LAW," ignores  flawed BUSH record on life issues

The new television commercial for President George Bush's reelection attacks Democratic challenger John Kerry for voting "against the Laci Peterson law that protects pregnant women from violence." Named after a woman who was killed with her unborn son, Conner, the law's official name is Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004, so the ad misleads as to whom is being protected. And that's just for starters

Bush camp says Kerry out of step with mainstream
"President Bush's re-election campaign sought to portray Democrat John Kerry as out of step with mainstream U.S. values on Thursday with a new television ad pointing out Kerry's Senate vote against a bill making it a crime to harm a pregnant woman's fetus.
Related article

Real News 24/7: The above article and the subject that inspired it would be laughable, were it not for the fact that the unborn are being used as a political football, because some of the underlying assumptions are so patently absurd. Although Kerry did vote against the bill, which in fact does make it a federal crime "to harm a pregnant woman's fetus" (it would be immeasurably more difficult to harm it if she wasn't pregnant), the ad says no such thing, suggesting that the crime is being committed against the woman, almost as though it was trying to appeal to feminists by dodging the real person being defended by the bill, namely, the unborn person. (Yes, protecting the mother protects the baby, but a reading of the bill plainly shows the unborn is its sole concern.)

The Unborn Victims of Violence Act (popularly known as the Laci Peterson Law or Laci and Conner's Law and identified as House Resolution 1997) is a feel good measure that on the surface no one but abortionists like Kerry could ever be against. Pro-life supporters of President Bush will be quick to hold up his signing of the bill as proof positive that he's on the side of the unborn (National Right to Life being a prime example, despite numerous proofs that just the opposite is true (some of which can be found in the links below).

Certainly, in this instance the President has done something we don't find fault in, aside from the fact that the law is an utterly unconstitutional usurpation of power (addressed is an earlier incarnation of the bill, but the arguments are still relevant to this one)aside from another "minor" fact that will be addressed shortly. But constitutionality aside, the pro-abortion groups have done much hand wringing over how this measure allegedly is a threat to Roe v. Wade. For example, in February the so-called National Organization for Women sent out an "action alert," urging members to agitate against the law, on the grounds that it

would seriously erode women's reproductive rights by establishing in federal law the status of "person" for fetuses—at all stages of development. (See [NOW Action List] Oppose Fetal Rights Legislation )

But the sham is that it does nothing of the sort. Under a subsection to the what will be seen as the ironically titled "Sec. 1841. Protection of unborn children," reads as follows

In other words, if the woman wants to inflict violence on the unborn, she's free to do so, whether by way of the tender mercies of her friendly neighborhood abortuary or a self-terminated pregnancy, she is not liable under the provisions of this subsection. (Neither, it would seem, would medical staff be liable who botch a delivery.)

Those who are protected by H.R. 1997 are few indeed and, by a not unreasonable extension of the legal sense implied therein, even fewer, because a defense attorney can argue that his client isn't liable because the woman whose unborn child died was on her way to have an abortion when the incident occurred. As Congressman Ron Paul notes in the above linked statement, by including such exclusions, the law, far from standing up forthrightly for the unborn, "further entrenches and seemingly concurs with the Roe v. Wade decision."   

So, while John Kerry's opposition to the Laci Peterson Law may well have been motivated by his pro-abortion stand, it was a needless opposition, as it does no harm to Roe v. Wade, pretended feminist fantasies notwithstanding. And while many of the less perceptive in the pro-life ranks will cite this as all the more reason to back the reelection of the White House's current occupant, they can only do so by failing to see through¼

KERRY'S Jewish brother to visit Israel

Cameron Kerry, the younger brother of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee in the United States, Senator John Kerry, is expected to visit Israel next week. He is scheduled to meet with Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, the director of the Prime Minister's office, Dov Weisglass, head of the opposition MK Shimon Peres, and others.¼

Meet Cameron Kerry, the Jewish, pro-Israel brother of John Kerry
"As many of you know, one of the things John Kerry's leftist base is most uncomfortable about is his strong support (at least on paper) of Israel. In fact, his pro-Israel policy paper last week caused severe consternation among Kerry supporters.

Cameron Kerry and his in-laws talk of the Democratic forerunner
"When Cameron Kerry fell in love with Kathy Weinman, he chose to convert to Judaism from Catholicism. Little did Kerry know that he already had a strong Jewish connection. His father’s parents were Jewish — a fact uncovered last year when the Boston Globe hired a genealogist to check into the family roots of Kerry’s more famous brother, John Kerry, the Democratic presidential frontrunner."

Brother emphasizes Kerry Israel support
"A crowd of 150 well-heeled, mostly liberal Jews paid $250 apiece to hear Cameron Kerry, Sen. John Kerry’s Jewish brother and top adviser, speak about the Democratic presidential candidate’s commitment to Israel and the Jewish people.

"Disclosures suggesting Israeli involvement in the ongoing occupation of Iraq are damaging to the US’s already meager credibility in the Middle East.

Since it opened on June 25, Michael Moore's hit "documentary" Fahrenheit 9/11 has been a lightning-rod of controversy, from Move America Forward !, which, arguing that its purported distortions would lessen support for the War on Terrorism,  successfully persuaded many theaters not to show it to novelist Ray Bradbury, incensed by the Moore's "borrowing" of the title from his sci-fi classic, Fahrenheit 451. Meanwhile, many opponents of the Iraq War hailed it as a brilliant exposé, failing to see Fahrenheit 9-11 for what it really is: false opposition. Finally, more perceptive people are beginning to see through the deceit and forcefully denounce it. 

Michael Moore and Richard Perle combine forces: Who really wants to invade Saudi Arabia, and why?
"Michael Moore’s new film 'Fahrenheit 9-11' has done a tremendous favor for some proponents of a war upon the Arabian Peninsula. The film achieves what endless pages of conservative think-tank studies and panel discussions, hours of PR time and books can not: spill gasoline on the anti-Saudi sparks already ignited within the United States. Moore's film lambastes the Saudis not only for their business relationships but also for leaving the US after the attacks of September 11th 2001 as did other non-Saudi officials on the same day when specific flights were permitted. The overwhelming popularity of this documentary takes the anti-Saudi message to a whole new market."

In recent years, motion picture studios have turned on a regular--if sporadic--basis to films concerning conspiracies and/or secret societies. Starting with Oliver Stone's take on the Kennedy assassination, JFK,  in 1991;  Conspiracy Theory (1997), which, with its references to MK Ultra mind control, comes disturbingly close to reality at times; The X Files (1998), based on the TV show about FBI agents tracking strange phenomena and a conspiracy within the government; Arlington Road (1999) and its terrorist plot; and The Skulls (2000), about a group patterned after the Bush-Kerry secret society, Skull_and_Bones clearly prove that Hollywood believes there is a market for such movies. And the trend has continued this year with Michael Moore 9-11 documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, as well as a  remake of the 1962 classic about brainwashing,  Manchurian Candidate, and the soon-to-be-released National Treasure.


New Cage movie features Illuminati spin and symbolism
National Treasure , a new Nicolas Cage film due to hit movie theatres in November, deals heavily in Illuminati symbolism and secret society rhetoric. (Be sure to check the hidden links in the last paragraph.)

The Illuminati and the CFR 
"Now just why did the conspirators choose the word: 'Illuminati' for their satanic-organization? Weishaupt himself said that the word is derived from Lucifer and means: 'holder of the light.' Using the lie that his objective was to bring about a one-world government to enable those with mental ability to govern the world and prevent all wars in the future. In short, using the words: 'peace on earth' as his bait, exactly as that same bait as: 'peace' was used by the 1945 conspirators to force the United Nations on us, Weishaupt financed, I repeat, by the Rothschilds, recruited some 2,000 paid followers."


Joseph Sobran: The Jewish Faction
"Within the Tribe, one of the worst sins a Jew can commit is to become a Christian, as witness Jewish hostility to Jews for Jesus. An irreligious or atheist Jew may claim Israeli citizenship at any time, but a Jew who has converted to Christianity may not.

PETA pushes "total animal liberation"
"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has been described as “by far the most successful radical organization in America.” The key word is radical. PETA seeks 'total animal liberation,' according to its president and co-founder, Ingrid Newkirk. That means no
meat or dairy, of course; but it also means no aquariums, no circuses, no hunting or fishing, no fur or leather, and no medical research using animals. PETA is even opposed to the use of seeing-eye dogs." (Exposé by, an organization that watches anti-consumer activist groups)
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Article from Wikipedia, followed by several interesting links PETA Petition Sign the Center for Consumer Freedom petition to the IRS, which seek seeks to strip PETA of its 501 (c) tax-exempt status on the grounds that "By repeatedly and continuously giving financial support to individuals and organizations devoted to domestic terrorism, PETA has demonstrated that it is incapable of conducting itself in a manner expected of nonprofit groups receiving federal tax subsidies."

Immigration ends the nation state
Plainly, our way of life, our American values and strong tradition of individual freedom and liberty, is not the shared experience that the political class wants to preserve. That’s the fundamental actuality that most Americans are reluctant to consider or address. But that timidity, does not stop the hordes from crossing the borders, or flying into airports. "

Voting official seeks process for canceling Election Day over terrorism
"The government needs to establish guidelines for canceling or rescheduling elections if terrorists strike the United States again, says the chairman of a new federal voting commission." (RN 24/7: When this is added to similar statements made recently and with those of General Tommy Franks on how the Constitution would be scrapped if another attack the magnitude of 9-11 takes place, then the specter of a police state looms larger. Don't give up your guns!)



It turns out that the Bush Administration has its own conspiracy theorist. In her book, Study of Revenge: Saddam Hussein's Unfinished War against America , Laurie Mylroie, formerly an Iraq advisor to Bill Clinton, argues that Saddam Hussein was behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Richard Perle called it "splendid and convincing," while fellow neo-con Paul Wolfowitz provided what the author called "crucial support" for her book.  Mylroie later expanded her thesis to make Saddam the mastermind of every anti-American attack over the past decade and Study of Revenge was duly republished after 9-11 as The War Against America)

Did one woman's obsession take America to war?
"Americans supported the war in Iraq not because Saddam Hussein was an evil dictator - they knew that - but because President Bush made the case that Saddam might hand weapons of mass destruction to his terrorist allies to wreak havoc on the United States. In the absence of any evidence for that theory, it's fair to ask: where did the administration's conviction come from?"
Laurie Mylroie Bio from Disinfopedia

Mylroie's "The Saddam-9/11 link confirmed"
In this article, carried in May by David Horowitz in Front Page Magazine, Laurie Mylroie presents her conspiracy theory.

CNN chat with Laurie Mylroie: Is Iraq involved with U.S. terror attacks?
On October 29, 2001, Mylroie took questions in CNN's chatroom and, among other things, said: "I believe that it is necessary to shift the war to Iraq and to do so as soon as possible, because Iraq is a primary threat, the primary terrorist threat to the United States.
¼It's necessary to get rid of Saddam."

Jersalem Post  interview with Dr. Laurie Mylroie
A day after her visit at CNN, Mylroie was interviewed by the Jerusalem Post, where she boldly implicated Iraq as being "behind the September 11th attack." Call for a war against Saddam's regime, she adds "when the U.S. targets Iraq with the aim of overthrowing Saddam, and Saddam realizes that [he is going down], then Saddam is going to do his best to bring his enemies down--and very high among those enemies to be targeted is Israel. "


China gears up For Taiwan showdown
"When China holds war games on Dongshan island off its southeastern coast this month, its SU-27 fighters will battle for air superiority and back up an amphibious landing in a mock invasion of Taiwan."

"Saint Death": Occult patron of Mexican subculture
"Deep in the heart of the no-go Mexico City barrio of Tepito, a long queue of men, women and children wait patiently to get closer to a 6ft image of Saint Death and seek a favor. " (RN 24/7: This satanic mockery of Christian saints--in particular, the Mother of Christ--remained dormant for centuries, only to rear its ugly head in the 1960s, coincidental [or perhaps, not coincidental] to Vatican II. How the cult produces a sick blending of images--Grim Reaper in the garb of the Madonna or the Christ Child, not unlike how voodooist give their devilish gods a Catholic veneer--is seen in
these photos. One webpage shows how false veneration for la Santa Muerte is being sacrilegiously combined with that of a real saint.)

Anti-Christian bias feared rising in Pakistan
"Muslim anger over the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is leading to more discrimination against Christians in Pakistan, an archbishop warns."

Jesus actor mistaken for the real deal
"James Caviezel has been swamped with requests to perform miracles by Mexican fans who believe he really is Jesus Christ."




On this, the 228th anniversary of our nation's founding, there have been numerous signs warningshould current directions in government and culture not be reversedof America's not-to-distant dissolution as a Constitutional Republic. Such red flags abound: the continued slaughter of the unborn despite a "pro-life" president in the White House, Supreme Court approval of sodomy and subsequent "gay marriages, an all-out, to-the-death "War on Terror" while millions of illegal aliens swarm into the U.S., increased unemployment through the "out-sourcing" of jobs, the senseless war in Iraq, the on-going transfer of power to the United Nations¼etc.    

Happy (July 4th) Birthday "Country"
"Recently, on the Sean Hannity radio show, a high school junior phoned in to say that her teacher had informed the students that the class would no longer be called American History – it was now to be called Our Country’s History. Unfortunately, our history books have been rewritten, twisting the truth about our heroic forefathers and in many cases eliminating historical facts and figures all together. Many schools have removed the American flag from class rooms, as well as discontinuing the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. And now, even the word American is on its way to being off-limits. "

A free nation doesn't do this!
"There is nothing in our Constitution that even remotely contemplates a government that is in the business of child care, education, enormous welfare programs, automobile or other transportation design standards, the protection of trees, owls and fish, health and other forms of insurance including home mortgage insurance, the obesity and food consumption habits of its people, underwriting higher education via grants and loans, and the "right" to invade private homes or tap into personal communications without just cause and a proper warrant. Nor did the framers of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights contemplate foreign nation-building by the federal government of this nation at the expense of our citizens, the taxpayers, who inevitably pay the bill, since government has no income of its own."

Pentagon tried to censor Saddam's hearing
"A team of US military officers acted as censors over all coverage of the hearings of Saddam Hussein and his henchmen on Thursday, destroying videotape of Saddam in chains and deleting the entire recorded legal submissions of 11 senior members of his former regime."

Michael Moore Shills for Illuminati Bankers
"Fahrenheit 9-11 blames the Bushes and Saudis for 911 and Iraq to divert our attention from the real masterminds. In assigning responsibility for the Iraq debacle, there is not a single mention of Israel or neo conservative Jews." (RN24/7: Could the fact that
Lions Gate, Moore's distributor for the film, is run by Jon Feltheimer have any thing to do with this omission? ¼Nah! How could you think such a thing? Make sure to check the link at the end of this article, which asks a number of pertinent questions about Moore.)

Science, politics and death
"Environmental extremism kills. Millions die annually because of restrictions on DDT, and imposing the 'Kyoto' regulations would kill many more."




As Saddam Hussein is being tried in Baghdad, there is the facade of it being a proceeding of, by and for the Iraqi people, while behind the scenes he still remains in U.S. custody. But is it a show trial in more than one way? If political commentator Joe Vialls is correct, it isn't even Saddam who's on trial, but a double and  what we're witnessing is but the latest in a series of carefully staged psychological operations by the occupation force.  

Shaddam Shaddam's new vaudeville scam!
"To say that New York's latest propaganda initiative got off to a bad start would be the understatement of the year. Initially, journalists who had personally viewed the prisoner stated that when an Iraqi judge asked whether or not he was Saddam Hussein, the response was affirmative. The journalists further described the prisoner as, 'in good health and shorn of the long hair and gray beard he had when he was arrested in December in a bunker near his hometown in Tikrit,' who afterwards "acknowledged that he was Saddam Hussein." We were then shown fanciful artistic sketches of the alleged clean-shaven tyrant and other members of his co-accused legitimate government ministers because, 'no photographs of Saddam Hussein are allowed due to high security.'"

Declassified report: Army stage-managed fall of Hussein statue
"It was a Marine colonel — not joyous Iraqi civilians, as was widely assumed from the TV images — who decided to topple the statue, the Army report said. And it was a quick-thinking Army psychological operations team that made it appear to be a spontaneous Iraqi undertaking." (RN 24/7: While this may be news to millions of Americans who accept the evening network 'news report' propaganda as the unvarnished truth, those who have visited Real News 24/7 and other independent news since the start of the Iraq War have known for over a year that this was a psychological manipulation carried out by military, but with the invaluable support of controlled TV media hacks, as is amply shown
here.) Related article

The ADL is " of the ugliest, most powerful pressure groups in the U.S...Its primary commitment is to use any technique, however dishonest and disgraceful, in order to defame and silence and destroy anybody who dares to criticize the Holy State ('Israel')."

--Noam Chomsky, Professor of Linguistics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Fact Sheet on the ADL

  • The ADL is a branch of the masonic B'nai B'rith (Sons of the Covenant), which was established Oct. 13, 1843.

  • Up until recently, for decades the chief "fact-finder" (head spy) for the ADL was the late Irwin Suall. From 1957 through 1962, Mr. Suall was national secretary of the Socialist Party.

  • The ADL keeps extensive espionage files on those who are critical of Israeli policies. Last year the ADL attempted to blackmail Benjamin Chavis, leader of the NAACP, with some of those files.¼

Independence Day: What do we celebrate?
"The conspirators for world government hate every expression of independence, because independence means something they do not control. Listen to what they say on Sunday. They will have to say something to satisfy us peons, but the obligatory things they say about independence will stick in their craws."

The stories TV news won't tell
"Since the Palestinians began their armed uprising against Israel's military occupation three years and eight months ago, British television and radio's reporting of it has been, in the main, dishonest - in concept, approach and execution."




Lieutenant General Richard Sanchez, who today stepped down as military commander in Iraq, ordered thousands of British troops to attack an Iranian force that had moved into disputed territory on the Iraqi border. This according to a senior officer cited by Defense Analysis.  " If we had attacked the Iranian positions, all h--- would have broken loose,"  the source said. "We would have had the Iranians to our front and the Iraqi insurgents picking us off at the rear."  This is the same Sanchez who predicted  that coalition troops would continue to occupy Iraq for "years, not months." Or did he mean Iraq¼and Iran?

Attack Iran, US chief ordered British

"America's military commander in Iraq ordered British troops to prepare a full-scale ground offensive against Iranian forces that had crossed the border and grabbed disputed territory, a senior officer has disclosed. An attack would almost certainly have provoked open conflict with Iran. But the British chose instead to resolve the matter through diplomatic channels."


Bill Buckley's Iraq War reversal
"The games played by a public intellectual are a marvel of moral irresponsibility. He casually suggests that a war would be a grand idea. The result is that 10,000 die and life is ruined for the living. Civilization is replaced by shifting stenches of death, disease, and filth. Millions swear retribution.
¼Ah, but then the intellectual changes his mind!"

Blind, or a coward?
"[Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9-11] is a brilliant piece of propaganda, entertaining and funny, and it skewers the president deliciously. But am I the only one to notice that in one critically important way, it entirely misses the boat and gets nearly everything wrong?
¼Moore totally avoids the question of Israel." (RN 24/7: The title of this column, suggests two possible explanations for Moore's failure to bring up Israel: Either  he is ignorant of the connection or he's afraid to mention it. But there's a third possibility and that's that he's false opposition! We haven't looked into this and are just throwing it out as conjecture, but note that his meteoric rise and the widespread critical acclaim of his lackluster "documentaries" could be seen as suspicious. More on Moore later.)  

Zionism: A conspiracy against Jews
"In 1935 the steamer 'Tel Aviv' made its maiden voyage from Nazi Germany to Haifa with Hebrew letters on its bow and a Nazi flag fluttering from its mast. The Captain of the Zionist-owned ship was a member of the Nazi Party. A passenger described the spectacle as a 'metaphysical absurdity'.
¼Actually it made perfect sense."
