American Airlines Falsely Blamed For 9/11

Viewers who have seen a preview copy of the "fraudumentary" about to be broadcast on ABC TV noted that the program falsely blames American Airlines for violating their security rules and allowing Mohammad Atta to board at Logan Airport . Atta actually boarded in Portland and it was a US Airways flight that first had a warning on him. However, the warning was not high level and did not preclude him from boarding.

In the ABC show American Airlines are made to look like idiots allowing a known hijacker to board. Wonder if they will advertise on ABC ever again?

Pope Calls Gay Rights "Ephemeral Social Trend"

Well, Gay folks have no friends at the Vatican. Pope Benedict XVI has launched a full-frontal attack on the rights of gay people just as he was about to depart for the Fatherland. In words that would fit well with the philosophy of another infamous German when he called Gay rights "an ephemeral social trend".

The comment came in a speech intended to influence democratic elections to be held across the US in November. He also castigated Canada for its moves toward equal rights for GLBT people.

Good to know that grace is not wasted in the Catholic Church, but rationed out to those favored by a man who was once a member of the Hitler Youth. You would think someone experiencing God’s grace after that kind of childhood would have more understanding of the true nature of God.

ABC Movie Of 9/11 Actually Funded By Fundamentalist Christian Organization

I sensed a hidden had behind the ABC TV project, Path to 9/11" and it turns out I was correct. Looks like an evangelical conservative Christian group is the actual funding source and producer of the project. The director’s family is tied to the fundamentalist group Youth With A Mission, whose "mission" is to infiltrate Hollywood and produce movies that carry their skewed version of history.

Their first project working script was titled the Untitled History Project, and was begun in 2005 as a history of 9/11. The production company was co-founded with Disney called UHP Productions.

Do the math and this adds up to propaganda pure and simple. Write your local affiliate of ABC and protest its blatant distortion of history today.

Bolton Nomination Dead According To Insiders

Looks like John Bolton’s nomination may be deader than his 1970’s toupee. The Washington Note reports:

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is "highly unlikely" to reconsider Bolton's confirmation again as things now stand. One insider reported, as far as the Committee is concerned, "we consider the confirmation over. It's dead."

Good news for anyone who believes that the best way to resolve international differences is through diplomacy and negotiations not war.

Brattleboro, Vermont Maintains Right To Public Nudity

The city elders of Brattleboro, Vermont used good judgement, in my opinion, in failing to rule on a city ordinance banning public nudity. Their reasoning was pretty simple. The leaves are changing and it will soon be too cold for public nudity. If the problem pops up again in the spring they will reexamine the issue.

I applaud these hearty New Englanders and their common sense. Public nudity could be used as a wedge issue to separate and invigorate political factions; instead they simply dropped it in favor of Mother Nature taking care of the problem.

As many readers recall Brattleboro is home to what was termed Breast Fest in 1990, a topless parade to invigorate discussion of breast cancer. The latest nude appearances have been sporadic and mostly teenagers sunbathing or having good clean fun sans clothing.

Here in Texas being "nekid" is akin to robbing a bank and would bring down the full force of the law. Gawd I hate this state sometimes!

Bush Pollster Pleads Guilty Of Fraud

I have long suspected some of the polls I see and now I have those suspicions confirmed. DataUSA now known as Viewpoint USA has been instrumental in several Bush campaign polls as well as the Lieberman campaign. Today the owner pleaded guilty of fraud. Turns out he made up lots of the results.

Detect a theme here? Conservatives like to make things up when the facts don’t fit their beliefs. More later.

Clinton Tells ABC TV To Tell The Truth

Finally, President Clinton has joined the fight against ABC and its right-wing propaganda show "The Path to 9/11". His lawyer has sent a scorching letter to the president of ABC Television and I suspect they will read between the lines and see the enormous liable suit coming.

The program makes many factual errors and purports to be the truth. The Director, right-wing supporter Cyrus Nowrasteh has even admitted that he made much of the critical plot points up. Let ABC know that this blatant pre-election tactic will not work.

"Fraude!" "Rateros!" Battle Cry Of The New Mexican Civil War

"Frauds, thieves", cried the supporters of L√≥pez Obrador, candidate for president of Mexico. They were shouting outside the high court that was to certify the election results which even though the razor thin margin of victory for Obrador’s opponent had been disqualified during a recount. The court performed a stunt worth of the US Supreme Court, deciding an election and nullifying citizen’s right to elect a president.

Now Obrador’s supporters are going to block Calderon (the winner) from making his traditional September 15 speech. They swear to take over the Zocalo outside the National Palace in protest. They already blocked Vincente Fox from making his last State of the Union speech to Mexico’s Congress. Additionally they will hold a convention on September 16 to form a "Government in Resistance."

Seems like sleepy Mexico has awakened to the years of corruption and fraud that have dominated Mexican politics. Many saw the arrival of Fox and the PAN as a welcome breath of fresh air to the PRI, which had ruled Mexico virtually unopposed for so many years. Instead the PAN has been a wind for more corruption and fraud backed by big business, much like the Republican Party is here.

We should take a lesson from our fellow North Americans in Mexico, we need change and if the ballot box is no longer a path, then other paths must be found. Viva Mexico!

GOP Funneled Millions Into Lieberman Campaign

Seems the man with Joementum was being supported by the GOP in his primary bid for the Democratic ticket. An article in Insight Magazine details how the GOP funneled millions to the Lieberman campaign.

Just as well he is off the ticket and even better that Ned Lamont will beat his alleged independent run in November. Bye Joe, we hardly knew you.

ABC 9/11 Docudrama Full Of Lies

ABC TV joins the Republican lie machine with their alleged docudrama "Path to 9/11". They have a key scene which never happened, where the Clinton administration supposedly has Bin Laden surrounded and fails to act. According to Richard Clarke, the counterterrorism czar under Bush the Elder, Clinton, and Bush the Lesser, it never happened.

Time to stop the propaganda. Take action and let ABC know they can't cook the facts right before the election.

BREAKING NEWS: It seems that ABC sent pre-broadcast versions of the show to right-wing bloggers only. This shows a blatant political slant for the missleading program and they must know about it.

Call this guy and let him know how you feel:

Condi Says War Opponents Would Condone Slavery

Moving from the absurd to the completely wacko, the Bush administrations orchestrated attack on Iraq war opponents continues with the latest strange salvo.

Secretary of State Rice compared the Iraq war with the American Civil War, telling a magazine that slavery might have lasted longer in this country if the North had decided to end the fight early.

"I'm sure there are people who thought it was a mistake to fight the Civil War to its end and to insist that the emancipation of slaves would hold," Rice said in the new issue of Essence magazine.

"I know there were people who said, 'Why don't we get out of this now, take a peace with the South, but leave the South with slaves?'" Rice said.

It was bad enough that Cheney tried to equate war opponents to Neville Chamberlain, but to try to make this crazy analogy is over the edge. This is another sign that the Bush administration is teetering on collapse and will try anything to stay in power. Keep an eye out for some sort of Machiavellian October Surprise.

Funny Edit Of Bush Speech

Google Video is a new time waster, but sometimes it's amazing to see what people come up with. This video is an edit of the State of the Union Speech that makes what Bush says accurate and true. His pledge to burn away forests, and torture just about anyone is freighteningly accurate.


Bush Says Jews Going To Hell

In the spirit of a true conservative and born again Christianist, Bush told a reporter while he was govenor of Texas, "you know what I'm gonna tell those Jews when I get to Israel…I'm telling 'em they're all going to hell."

Ah that’s the true conservative spirit. Bush is quoted in the new book by James Moore and Wayne Slater. The book, "The Architect: Karl Rove and the Master Plan for Absolute Power" is about the rise and hopefully soon fall of Karl Rove. I suggest you read it, the excerpts already available are amazing.
