Fighting Words: Comment: The New Yorker

Earlier this month at the National Press Club, in Washington, two expert September 11th political opportunists joined in an embrace, when Pat Robertson, the televangelist who attributed the terrorist attacks to American sinfulness, endorsed Rudy Giuliani, the Republican Presidential front-runner whose every campaign sentence, according to Senator Joseph Biden, consists of “a noun and a verb and 9/11.” Robertson explained his support for the pro-choice, pro-gay-rights candidate by stating, “The overriding issue before the American people is the defense of our population from the bloodlust of Islamic terrorists”—bringing to mind no one so much as the foreign-policy commentator Borat, who told a rodeo audience in Virginia, “May George Bush drink the blood of every single man, woman, and child of Iraq.”

It’s not that Gore doesn’t understand.
His role isn’t to tell the truth.

What Al Gore doesn’t understand about climate change.

Making sense of Goldman Sachs, Al Gore, 9/11, and the charade of global warming hysteria.

Let me cut to the chase: The two clipped articles below point toward support of several of my core contentions, some of which I have found strong opposition toward, even on blogs which I would consider “9/11 Truth friendly”.

1. 9/11 was carried out for the benefit of an elite that extends into what some consider bastions of our capitalist bedrock.

2. The corrupt power structure that is manipulating events and outcomes behind the scenes has nothing to do with Capitalism (or Marxism, etc.).

3. Al Gore is serving this same aforementioned elite with his global warming hysteria.

4. Tony Blair was not G. W. Bush’s poodle. George Bush is the elite’s poodle. “W” plays a village idiot rather than being one.

5. The “liberals”, tree huggers, environmental activists, etc. who are bringing massive support to the Al Gore led “Inconvenient Truth” are walking in lock step with the behind-the-scenes plans to use this issue for fun, profit and further manipulation of the geopolitics and power throughout the world.

Please go to the links below and read carefully. Put 2+2 together.

Concern about carbon dioxide emissions lurk behind rejection of new coal-fired power plants

Investors have rejected coal-fired generation as well; Texas-based utility TXU found itself under new ownership after announcing plans to build as many as 11 new coal-fired power plants. Instead, a private consortium of investors, including investment bank Goldman Sachs and private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., purchased the power generation company and last week changed its name to Energy Future Holdings Corporation after withdrawing eight of the planned applications.

“I look forward to working with management and employees to demonstrate our commitment to being a leading corporate citizen, to implementing stronger environmental policies, and to providing reliable and affordable power,” Donald Evans, new chairman of Energy Future, said in a statement last week.

It is interesting to note that the author of the following article seems clueless about what happened on 9/11 … seems to buy the govt. story. What a Chomsky!

He is railing against capitalism and imperialism, when what we are looking at, in the cases of 9/11, is cold blooded murder, facilitated by insiders, covered up at almost every level of our govt., media, and institutions, not the least of those being fake-opposition left.

The Fairmont Conference

“Tittytainment” is a term crafted by the Zbigniew Brzezinski and a portmanteau of two words: tits (as a reference to breast-feeding) and entertainment. This Tittytainment is a mixture of “intoxicating entertainment and sufficient nourishment” that can “tranquilize the frustrated minds of the globe’s population.”1

Is Cheney Truly Our Acting President? (Updated)

clipped from www.usnews.com

Cheney’s Guy

He’s barely known outside Washington’s corridors of power, but David Addington is the most powerful man you’ve never heard of. Here’s why:

One week after the September 11 terrorist attacks, President George W. Bush briefly turned his gaze away from the unfolding crisis to an important but far less pressing moment in the nation’s history. The president signed legislation creating a commission to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark Supreme Court ruling desegregating public schools. In a brief statement, Bush invited the various educational groups listed in the legislation to suggest the names of potential commissioners and also urged members of Congress to weigh in, as a “matter of comity.” But in a little-noted aside, Bush said that any such suggestions would be just that–because under the appointments clause of the Constitution, it was his job, and his alone, to make those kinds of decisions.

The Biggest Cheney Mystery

By Dan Froomkin
Special to washingtonpost.com
Tuesday, October 16, 2007; 1:53 PM

Just what is the relationship like between President Bush and Vice President Cheney? Behind closed doors, who defers to whom?

PBS’s “Frontline” documentary series tonight chronicles Cheney’s relentless, secretive and smashingly successful quest to expand executive power. While the Oval Office is traditionally the center of power, New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer notes on the show, “The strange thing about this administration is all of the most crucial decisions seem to be taking place in the vice president’s office, or even the vice president’s counsel’s office.”

In an interview for a Fox News special about Cheney that aired over the weekend, Bush insisted that he’s the decider — but even kindly disposed Fox News reporter Brett Baier noted that Bush was unusually vague in describing his relationship with the vice president.

Can Anyone See That Bad Info is Being Fed to the Public?

Why Bush won’t attack Iran

Despite saber-rattling, and the Washington buzz that a strike is coming, the president doesn’t intend to bomb Iran. Cheney may have other ideas.

The 18 people at the party, including former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, then voted with a show of hands for either Brzezinski’s or Scowcroft’s position. Scowcroft got only two votes, including his own. Everyone else at the table shared Brzezinski’s fear that a U.S. strike against Iran is around the corner.

The left — and much of the old-school, realist right — fears that Bush means to bomb Iran sometime between now and next spring. Both would like to rally public opinion against the strike before it happens. The neoconservative right, meanwhile, is asserting that we will bomb Iran but that we need to get to it posthaste.

Nonsense from the Daily Mail

Blogger Thoughts: What is happening in America today and what is happening in the senseless “wars” has very little to do with anything about the puppet called George W. He’s the jester, the front man, the distraction to keep the spotlight off the crooks and murderers going about their business.

Bush the Jihadist: How the world was plunged into an apocalyptic war

For George W Bush’s proclaimed “global war on terror”, this has been a week to remember – but also a week that should make us challenge the basic assumptions behind this so-called “war”.

Last Tuesday, the world commemorated the sixth anniversary of 9/11, when the ultimate totems of America’s capitalist pride, the 110-storey Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre, were attacked by Al Qaeda terrorists using hijacked airliners as guided missiles, and then, with the world watching on TV, collapsed one by one like broken Lego.
