Extra! Extra! Read All About It! Terrorist's Plot Foiled Again

The Bush regime has their back against the wall. With all the horrid facts from the last 5 years coming back to bite them in the a$$, these are desperate times for desperate men and their saber rattling states this loud and clear. From low approval ratings, blatant corruption, torture charges/war crimes and the House and Senate seats up for grabs in the November elections, what could they do that would turn the American people's contempt for them around or at least create a distraction?

How about a tried and true favorite, a terrorist's plot. Yes! That should do it. Nothing like a foiled terrorist plan to bring the sheepies back into the fold. But what kind of terror and from what area? They could call on their old friends the Brits. Tony Blair and his poodle brigade always have something up their sleeve to help them out in a pinch. Weren't they just talking to them a couple of months ago about a terrorist group they have had under surveillance since December 2005? Wasn't this same terrorist group working on a plan to bring explosives onboard airplanes? How perfect!

Now, they need the timing of this breaking news to benefit them politically and also to draw attention away from their invasion and occupation of the blood for oil war they created in Iraq and their non-existent foreign policies. Let's see, the Lieberman -Lamont Connecticut election is just a few days away with that Ned Lamont guy using the failure in Iraq as the main issue in his campaign. If Lieberman loses on this premise, it will certainly not bode well for Bushco. Damn Lamont and the 61% of Americans who are against their war for profit! Whining, unpatriotic babies, the lot of them!

Bushco just got off the phone with Tony Blair and John Reid (British Home Security). They all agree that they must orchestrate the release of their good, er I mean, troubling news so that it benefits both their countries. John is going to start his saber rattling a few hours before they start making the arrests. He'll start by charging large parts of Britain's political, legal and media establishments of just not getting it. Britain faced "probably the most sustained period of severe threat since the end of the second world war", he added. Mr. Blair was on vacation at the time of the arrests but assured everyone that if he had known they would have to play the terrorist card so quickly, he would have postponed his trip to the Caribbean for a day or two.

Now it's Bushco's turn to rattle their sabres.

Cheney holds a teleconference to discuss the outcome of the Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut stating that to "purge a man like Joe Lieberman" was "of concern, especially over the issue of Joe's support with respect to national efforts in the global war on terror." He explained:
"The thing that's partly disturbing about it is the fact that, the standpoint of our adversaries, if you will, in this conflict, and the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task."

Purge? (To free from impurities; purify. To become pure or clean). That sounds like a plus to me. Cheney forgot to mention that his war in Iraq has nothing to do with the global war on terror so I'll just add that little tidbit for him.

GOP chair Ken Mehlman called the DNC "the Defeat-ocrat Party" ... "that once stood for strength now stands for retreat and defeat."

A new sound bite? Does the Republican Party always have to resort to name-calling? The big poo poo heads, slime balls, gopher guts regime. Hmmmmmmm. I have to admit it does make me feel somewhat better.

Tony Snow said: "It's a defining moment for the Democratic Party, whose national leaders now have made it clear that if you disagree with the extreme left in their party they're going to come after you."

Come after you? Ooooh. That certainly sounds scary! When "they come after you" could "they" bring me some pizza and a six-pack. Pretty please.

Joe Lieberman said: "If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them, and they will strike again."

By "it" Joe means the invasion of Iraq that created more terrorists and makes us less safe and all the thousands of deaths of innocent civilians in the Middle East. He is still too wound up from his victory speech when he LOST to Ned Lamont to think straight.

So, everybody listen up. You must give up even more of your freedom for the greater good of the forever war on terror campaign. You can no longer bring toothpaste, cologne, bottled water, or any other liquid that could be used to blow something up onto an airplane. Mothers with babies can bring formula, breast milk and juice but you will have to suffer the humiliation of drink testing your baby's food in front of all the strangers at the airport. Small price to pay for security or stupidity beyond belief?

Lieberman And The Internet Junkies

An article on Huffington Post titled "Letting Go Of Joe" claims that Lieberman didn't lose because of "internet junkies." I assume she means bloggers.  Ya know, we who discuss issues online including politics while sitting in our pajamas all day.  Apparently, the efforts of the hundreds/thousands of voters/bloggers who showed up to support Ned Lamont and those behind the scenes who manned the phones to get the word out and those who spread the word through family and friends did not matter.  I made the following comment on her article last night but she has yet to post it.  

So nice of you to offer that condescending remark about "Internet junkies" who apparently aren't real voters.  Lieberman loss for many reasons.  He questioned the value of affirmative action. He has denied the disaster in Iraq and attacks the patriotism and judgment of any who questions the invasion. Lieberman argued against demanding a full recount of the Florida ballots between Bush and Gore in 2000. Lieberman called for the censure of Clinton but rejected a call by Sen. Russell D. Feingold to censure Bush over the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program, calling the attempt "divisive." He is indorsed by Faux News Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and Bill Kristol and has financial backing from major Republican lobbyists.  If it acts like a Republican and talks like a Republican, it's probably Joe Lieberman whining that the voters don't know what's good for them so he'll give them another chance by running as an Independent.

Lets Have A Smack Down USA On The Neocons

Individuals like Bill Kristol (I call him Billy because his ideology is stunted and immature) do not understand the true meaning of America.  As with anyone who has grown up physically but whose social conscience has stymied at an elementary school level, his own self-interests and beliefs are always the underlining message in his articles.  His disregard for human life (except his own) makes it easy for him to push his idea of forcing democracy on the Middle East and other countries using the might of our military.  His narrow-minded view of the world like those of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, John Bolton, and most of the Republican Party leadership (dictatorship) has little if any understanding of the meaning of democracy.  Democracy as most of the world understands it is the will of the majority to exercise decision-making power subject to the rule of law and moderated by a constitution, which emphasizes the protection of liberties, freedoms, and rights of individuals and minorities.  Almost half of the world's population now lives under democratic regimes.  But our definition of democracy very likely will not work in the Middle East and who are we to push our values on another country.  Our government is not one to hold up as a positive example as our own freedom is being systematically stripped away.

Billy the kid wants war and after that, more war! His lust for global war drives him. He uses the corporate embedded news media of Fox (faux) News Channel and The Standard Weekly both which are financed by Rupert Murdoch to expound on his view of the world. He's also part of a think (stink) tank, which is just another way of saying that he's part of a group with the same narrow-minded views.  It is much easier to "think" inside this box than to promote creative discussion that offers actual value to America and citizens of other countries. For the good of the whole instead of the good of the few apparently is not a thought within the stink tank. Maybe a little less thinking and a little more caring would help.

Kristol is recognized in part for some of the foreign policy failures of the Bush administration.  In 2005, Kristol praised President Bush's inaugural address during Fox's coverage of the speech, as well as in a Weekly Standard article without disclosing his role as a consultant to the writing of the speech. What a stand up guy!
Billy the kid is morally bankrupt and if Bush had any sense he would ground this narcissistic warmonger and put him in a timeout. The message from the majority is that you go first Billy and we'll be right behind you (about 5,000 miles behind you).

Is The AP Part Of The MSM Propagandist Machine?

I ran across an article on the Huffington Post written by an AP associate. I have noticed that some AP reporters take quite a few liberties in their press releases that can completely change the meaning of the message. This particular report was regarding al-Qaeda's call for Holy War (her words). The writer makes changes to the original translation, i.e.

"until Islam reigns from Spain to Iraq" actually states "will last until religion prevails ... from Spain to Iraq,"

"al-Qaida now views "all the world as a battlefield open in front of us." Actually states "The entire world is an open battlefield for us and since they are attacking us everywhere, we will attack everywhere."

Once again quotes "It is a jihad (holy war) for the sake of God and will last until (our) religion prevails ... from Spain to Iraq," al-Zawahri said." But takes liberties by putting OUR in parentheses when it was not in the translation and also adds Holy War instead of jihad. According Wikipedia a holy war is a religious war but jihad is a physical or military struggle.

Here's the original translation.  

In a taped message broadcast on Aljazeera, Ayman al-Zawahiri said al-Qaeda would not stand by while "these shells burn our brothers" in Lebanon and Gaza.
He called on Muslims to join forces and fight what he called the "Zionist-crusader war" against Muslim nations.

"Oh Muslims everywhere, I call on you to fight and become martyrs in the war against the Zionists and the crusaders," the Egyptian born former doctor said.
"The war with Israel does not depend on ceasefires... It is a jihad for God's sake and will last until religion prevails ... from Spain to Iraq," al-Zawahiri said.
Open battlefield

"The entire world is an open battlefield for us and since they are attacking us everywhere, we will attack everywhere."

The deputy to Osama bin Laden wore a grey robe and white turban during the statement. A picture of the World Trade Centre on fire was on the wall behind him along with pictures of two fighters.
"The shells and rockets ripping apart Muslim bodies in Gaza and Lebanon are not only Israeli, but are supplied by all the countries of the crusader coalition. Therefore, every participant in the crime will pay the price," al-Zawahiri said.
He also suggested that the world cared more about Israelis than Palestinians.

"The 10,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israel's prisons do not move anything while three Israeli prisoners have shaken the world," he said.
The statement was the first from al-Qaeda to comment on Israel's offensive in Lebanon which began after the capture of two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid by Hezbollah

So, is the AP part of the corporate embedded MSM?
