Profit for the 'right' people.

Baron de Rothschild and Prescott Bush, share a moment and some information, back in the day.
March 30, 2012

We -- as in BFEE -- started it.

Inslaw-PROMIS was its name, part of the Octopus Danny Casolaro was looking into. The "PRosecution Management Information System" software was developed by William Hamilton's company, Inslaw, for the Federal government. Reagan and Meese's chums, cough Poppy, ripped it off and marketed it themselves to allies around the world, opening up their secret prisons, etc. to NSC review in the 1980s. Plus, they made a handsome profit.

Japan needs America and the World's HELP NOW!

They have to develop new technologies to contain the radiation, let alone clean up the site.

They should partially evacuate the northern 2/3 of Honshu. The old like me, those who intend to never procreate, and those wearing protective gear should be able to stay. Everyone else should get the hell out of Dodge.

Kissinger, Pinochet, Guzzetti, CONDOR...los amigos de Bush.

They ordered and enabled the assassinations of former Chilean ambassador Orlando Letelier and American Ronnie Karpen Moffit... and Poppy didn not stop them, along with many other acts of terrorism.

10 years PLUS...

...all the propaganda, drivel, disinformation, misinformation, uninformation and whatnot that will have spewed from ABCNNBCBSFakeNoiseNutworks and the rest of Corporate McPravda in those years, making it even more difficult to discern signal from the noise.

Newer DUers should ask about George Herbert Walker Bush. He was in Dallas on November 22, 1963 and no corporation or publisher in the national press corpse gives a shit. Ask Russ "A List to Black List" Baker or Gary "Contra Cocaine" Webb, about both of whom the LA Times lied.

Lather, rinse, repeat. My Friend.

''Iím only asking that the CIA obey the law.'' -- Jefferson Morley

Those who think Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone have their reasons. Personally, I believe they are on the wrong side of both the facts and history.

Key to my belief is the work of two authorities, John M. Newman and Jefferson Morley. They report Oswald appears to have been impersonated in Mexico City and CIA failed to disclose this information to Warren Commission or the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA).

The person charged with providing that information to the HSCA in 1977 was George Joannides, who also happened to have known Oswald's most important contacts, the anti-Castro Cuban expatriates Joannides oversaw in New Orleans as their CIA paymaster in 1963. Small world!

One thing about this that’s most un-democratic is how CIA won’t divulge those records, even after ordered to do so by a Federal Judge John Tunheim, who led the Assassination Records Review Board, in the 1990s.

So, on behalf of history, the Truth and the People, Newman and Morley have had to sue CIA. And in the interest of national security, the case has been appealed until it has effectively been quashed -- over 300 pages of Joannides' work stuff from ca. 1963.

PS: I take it personally when people, including Mr. Fish, find anything funny about Dallas. Because it wasn’t the work of a lone nut, that terrible day means the traitors killed the Liberal and ran free. So, it’s a Political Thing for this Democrat.

The only place Rush belongs is jail.

He himself said that's where drug users belong. Better fate than what he'd give drug dealers if he were dictator. They'd be put to death.

Russ Baker wrote 'Family of Secrets' and it's gotten near-zero press.

Of course, what press the top-notch writer got was pretty one-sided:

The charges of corruption the author levels at the Bush family are extraordinary and sensational--why, our reviewer wonders, would anyone legitimize them by publishing this book? -- The Los Angeles Times

What the GOP does to its hordes, they do to honest journos. Remember Gary Webb? LA Times and the rest of Corporate McPravda helped bury him, too.

How Can Congress Debate a Secret Law?

Odd, I don't remember hearing about this on the television screen:

In a joint op-ed, Senators Wyden and Udall explained that secret interpretations of the Patriot Act were preventing Congress from having an open, informed debate on the law’s extension. [font color="blue"][font size="5"]“In a democratic society, government agencies derive their power from the public's trust,” Wyden and Udall wrote, “Secret laws undermine that trust and authority, which then erodes and ultimately damages our ability to fight terrorism and protect the American people.”[/font size][/font color]

Thanks for giving a damn about democracy, woo me with science. I don't understand why so few members of our news media get what we're talking about. I blame Corporate McPravda for the public's apparent apathy.

If you're not with us, we'll destroy you.

Thanks to NSA technology, they got a pretty good idea of who's telephoned whom about what. Consider the dangers posed to authority by peaceful peace activists...
