WARNING WILL ROBINSON THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY HAS GONE MAD!

George French | In a poor terror tag team propaganda attack, Eliza Manningham-Buller and Prime Minister Blair show they are totally inept at interdicting terror plots even with their new found powers and are using psychological warfare techniques on an unsuspecting public to further usurp the freedoms of the citizens of western nations. more...  0 Comments

Grand Theft Pentagon

A.K. Gupta | With a Democratic majority set to take over Congress in January, the White House has put forth a brazen request that amounts to a heist of the federal treasury. This past February, it requested an additional $72.4 billion for its wars. About $70 billion was approved by Congress with $60 billion of that for the Iraq War alone. Now, the White House is having the Pentagon ask for a staggering $160 billion to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for 2007.

U.N.-Liberating Haiti

Kevin Pina | Since the deposition of Haiti's elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide in February 2004 the global media, 'civil society' and murderous UN 'peacekeepers' have been working hard to ignore popular demands for his reinstatement, reports Kevin Pina For most, Haiti's second name is 'the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere', a well-worn rhetorical device that brings us no closer to understanding the socio-political landscape than reminding ourselves that the United States is the wealthiest and most powerful nation on earth. more...  0 Comments

Conservative Churches Scrutinized for Illegal Political Activity

Between the Lines' Scott Harris | Conservative Churches Scrutinized for Illegal Political Activity

Interview with Tim Mooney, senior counsel, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, conducted by Scott Harris

The role of religion in American politics has been on the rise as the Republican party has become increasingly identified with, and beholden to, Christian fundamentalist groups. The political agenda of conservative religious organizations that oppose abortion, gay marriage and stem cell research has been fully adopted by the GOP. In turn, religious activists have been extremely successful at turning out their conservative base at election time to back Republican candidates. Almost a quarter of U.S. voters who cast ballots in the 2004 Presidential election identified themselves as born-again or evangelical Christians - with a vast majority of them supporting President Bush.

During the 2004 campaign documents surfaced, which indicated that the Bush-Cheney re-election operation had urged Christian supporters to turn over church directories, seeking to identify friendly congregations. This activity fueled accusations that the Bush campaign supported churches that violated laws barring tax exempt charities from engaging in any type of partisan political campaigning.

In the midst of the hotly contested 2006 Congressional campaign, the nonpartisan group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint asking the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the role that two churches may have played in the re-election campaign of the Kansas' attorney general, a Republican. Other allegations of IRS rules violations have been leveled at religious groups in California, Minnesota, Missouri, and Ohio. Spokespersons for CREW have asked why the IRS has confined their investigations to liberal organizations such as the NAACP and a liberal church in California. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Tim Mooney, senior counsel for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. He discusses his group's concern that the IRS is unfairly targeting progressive groups while ignoring politically conservative church violators.

Tony Blair: “Poisonous Propaganda”

peptide | Tony (45 mins) Blair, member of the coalition of willing criminals and terrified of the prospect of facing a war crimes tribunal, has today labelled the dissenting voice of opposition (justice) as “poisonous propaganda”. The world received this ridiculous statement with ample incredulity. We are all familiar with the politics of inversion and pathologically lying Prime Ministers (Blair and Howard) but this latest desperate statement from Blair even elicited a bray from the Whitehouse donkey, who is far too busy with his own problems to offer any assistance to his partner in crime. The three most notorious murderers of the 21st century, Bush, Blair and Howard are facing an extremely hazardous future! more...  0 Comments
