Speak out now

Take Down A Scumbag Today


The tools of terrorism:

Children's artwork and posters of Martin Luther King, Jr.

From the Defending Dissent Foundation:
"Doors were kicked in during the early morning raids in Minneapolis and Chicago and personal belongings including childrens' artwork, posters of Martin Luther King, Jr, were taken, as well as cell phones, computers and boxes of paper records. About a dozen activists from Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan have been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury. The FBI emphasized that no arrests were made, but that evidence was being collected regarding the possible 'material support' of terrorism. The 'material support' statute is so broadly written that it can, and does, include international peace-building activities that are not in any way intended to support terrorism."

Meanwhile, it's perfectly okay for Israeli commandos to board an aid vessel in international waters and shoot an American four times in the head.

UN Fact-Finding Mission Says Israelis "Executed" American

UN Fact-Finding Mission Says Israelis "Executed" US Citizen Furkan Dogan

Why isn't the White House responding? I guess they didn't do much when 23 year-old American Rachel Corrie was crushed with an Israeli bulldozer, either. Or when Israelis killed 34 American sailors aboard the USS Liberty.

Tell me again ... why is Israel our greatest "friend" in the Middle East ... and why do we send them so much money every year?

Iranian president mentions elephant in the room

by calling for a UN investigation of 9-11, and US delegates (plus a few of their friends) run away in phony indignation:

U.N. delegates walk out during Iranian president's speech

Be sure to listen to his actual speech at the above link. Makes sense to me. I don't know enough about Ahmadinejad to have formed an reliable opinion about him, but whenever he's mentioned it always seems he's unfairly demonized.

This is pretty big news. For every delegate who left there are quite a few who stayed ... and the world is a heck of a lot bigger than the US and her allies.

How do you like *your* tea?

I was going to write something about the Tea Party, but I blew all my time looking up more "fun" things on the internet. So here's a good ol' fashioned rant about it that makes sense to me:

Tea With Frankenstein

There's something rotten in the Gulf of Mexico

You don't have to be an expert to see there's something wrong with these crabs. Now would be a good time to give up shellfish.

Silence is the Death of Liberty

[Written by GW at Washington's Blog; inspired by the poem First They Came by Martin Niemöller, which was written about the Nazis. Originally written in 2007, GW updated this poem with an additional verse about assassinations.]

First they tortured a U.S. citizen and gang member ...
I remained silent;
I wasn't a criminal

Then they tortured a U.S. citizen, whistleblower and navy veteran ...
I remained silent;
I wasn't a whistleblower

Then they locked up an attorney for representing accused criminals ...
I remained silent;
I wasn't a defense attorney

Then they arrested a young father walking with his son simply because he told Dick Cheney that he disagreed with his policies ...
I remained silent;
I've never talked to an important politician

Then they said an entertainer should be killed because she questioned the government's version of an important historical event ...
I remained silent;
I wasn't an entertainer

Then they arrested people for demanding that Congress hold the President to the Constitution ...
I did not speak out;
I've never protested in Washington

Then they arrested a man for holding a sign ...
I held my tongue;
I've never held that kind of sign

Then they broke a minister's leg because he wanted to speak at a public event ...
I said nothing;
I wasn't a religious leader

Then they shot a student with a taser gun and arrested him for asking a question of a politician at a public event ...
I remained silent;
I wasn't a student

Then they declared that they could label U.S. citizens as "unlawful enemy combatants" and imprison them indefinitely - and even assassinate them - all without trial ...
I remained silent;
I assumed I wasn't on a list

When they came for me,
Everyone was silent;
there was no one left to speak out.

Let's get over the divisiveness

I think it's long been the Mass Media's job to keep people divided -- along racial, political and even religious lines. I think that last is what explains the recent flap there's been about the Ground Zero Mosque. Just another psy-op to fan the flames between Muslims and non-Muslim Americans.

I remember Jon Stewart calling out Glenn Beck and Fox News about this guy, and started thinking. Now take a look at this article:
Untangling the Bizarre CIA Links to the Ground Zero Mosque

Oh, and here's another interesting link about the latest in "mind control" technology:
DARPA working to develop helmets for US Army that control soldiers’ brains

What are they spraying us with, and why???

They're spraying us from the skies:

And as I wrote in my last post, they're still spraying the water in the Gulf. Read this eye-opening essay I found on Light Keeper's blog:
Who Killed the Gulf?

Start paying attention to the sky, people -- and what they're doing to our water. Start asking questions. Awareness is the key to a better world for all of us!
