Bush and Clinton in charge of Haiti Rescue Fund?? Creepy.

I've refrained from talking about Haiti the past couple weeks because, believe it or not, the whole thing kind of creeps me out. God knows I've engaged in wild-eyed speculation on this blog, and I'm certainly not afraid of forwarding unpopular "conspiracy theories;" but though it's been years since I've heard that HAARP could cause earthquakes and I know that America has bloodied its hands through years of interference with Haitian foreign policy, there's something about the scale and horror of what just happened at Port-au-Prince that makes me really, really not want to go there. Kind of like Michael Ruppert (one of the earliest researchers of the events of 9-11): I Really, Really Do Not Like This Story

But hearing a Royal Navy flotilla withdrew from the Caribean weeks before the quake ("...the unpublicised cut marked the first time that the Royal Navy has had a significant gap in cover in the Caribbean since the 17th century") and this story: The Militarization of Emergency Aid to Haiti
and just the general creepiness of putting George W. Bush and Bill Clinton in charge of emergency fund-raising ... well, I've got to say something. I don't like the way things are smelling. How surreal is it that the guy who said "You're doing a heck of a job, Brownie!" while the head of FEMA totally fucked up Katrina disaster relief was just on television saying, "One of the things that [President Clinton] and I will do is to make sure your money is spent wisely."

Suppose that Anchorage, Alaska was totally flattened by an earthquake (it's happened before!) and nearby Russia says it's sending about 10,000 troops to "help out" -- and they've already taken over the airport, controlling the flow of all relief supplies. According to Michel Chossudovsky, that's what's going on in Haiti ... beginning to sound more like an invasion than a rescue mission, isn't it?

Why Congress Resembles Pro Wrestling

I've never been a registered Democrat, but I consider myself a progressive, so you'd think I'd be miffed at the Dems losing their filibuster-proof majority to the Massachusetts Senate race. Effectively, the people of Massachusetts spit on the grave of Ted Kennedy and, according to the mainstream press, destroyed any opportunity for health care reform to pass. This is all BS of course, they could pass it now if they wanted, but they won't because the Dems are just as corrupt as the Republicans, they just have to pretend a little more that they care about the downtrodden.

Do you get the feeling the Dems deliberately threw this fight? Why did Caroline Kennedy mysteriously drop her bid, for example? Am I wrong, or wouldn't she have been a shoe-in? Instead they ran a lady who didn't know the Red Sox from the Yankees, and was a "lazy campaigner." How convenient for the corporate-owned Democratic Senators that they now have a ready-made excuse for not passing a single progressive piece of legislation -- they don't have the 60% "majority" to override a Republican filibuster.

So why am I, a progressive, happy about this? Because it hastens the inevitable demise of the stinkingly corrupt Democratic Party. The sooner that moldy old tub sinks, the better! Too many good people have had their time, money and energy bled dry to elect Dems, only to have their hopes dashed that their reps will do anything to help the needy, or stop imperial wars. What those people should really be doing is focusing on election reform -- get the money out of elections and make it possible for other-party candidates to get elected! The two-party system is broken beyond repair! Down with the Dems! Down with the Republicans! Down with the *illusion* of democracy!

Educate yourself -- the Mainstream Media is lying to you.

Americans are being bombarded by propaganda. Don't let 5 or 6 mega-corporations decide what is news for you! Here are some questions you might ask yourself:
Is Bin Laden still alive?
Is there really such a thing as Al-Qaeda?
Is the media's main topic of discussion relevant to my life? What am I being distracted from? Who's funding this issue? Who benefits from this turn of events?

Thomas Jefferson wrote: "Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government" and "Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day." Unfortunately, the American people have grown very ill-informed, and we're getting the government we deserve.

On the 11th of every month I try to take some kind of action to spread the word about what I think is the worst media/government deception of recent times, because it has been used as the fundamental excuse for "the War on Terror" (how can you possibly win a war against a tactic?): the events of Sept. 11, 2001. They have been used to justify the gutting of our Bill of Rights (read about the Patriot Act), our use of torture, and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Free 9-11 documentaries and movies here.
Watch them and share them with your friends! Have the courage to bring up this topic with neighbors and acquaintances. It's time to break the silence.

Here are some people taking matters into their own hands:

The Love Police

Love IS more powerful than fear. If you face difficult times ahead, don't ever forget that.

Happy New Year

I'm sure glad the past decade is over. During one of my rare glances at Corporate TV News I heard the talking heads discuss whether the past decade should be called the "zeros," the "aughts," the "2000's" or whatever. I'll just call it the "crap years."

One of the last things that happened during those crap years was a young guy with a very Muslim-sounding name managed to get on a Christmas international plane to Detroit with a bunch of explosives in his pants. Excuse me, airline security has new mothers dumping out breast milk, forfeiting nail clippers and fingernail polish, but this guy (who was being reported on by the CIA's Africa division) got on board and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Nepolitano says everything went according to plan?

I don't know what to make of the following American eye-witness claim that he had been shepherded onto the plane by an Indian man who claimed he was a refugee from Sudan, but it's worth a look:

CNN Airs Witness Testimony that 'Well Dressed' Indian accomplice helped Abdulmutallab board without passport.

I'll admit I don't have enough time on the internet to peruse the details of this lame false-flag scenario, but I think it's obviously an excuse to ratchet up the fear and attack Yemen in the bargain. Until next time, here's a toast for the teens (or whatever you want to call this new decade)! To the liberation of the oppressed, and God bless us, every one!
