- The world of George W. Bush, President, is starting to
come apart. According to a recent poll, now a full 62 percent of the American
people oppose him and his unjust, unnecessary, unlawful and unconstitutional
war in Iraq. In that same poll, 49 percent consider Bush a bad manager,
which requires little speculation as to how they feel about his role as
chief executive of the United States.
- There are now reports that G. Bush is downing shots of
Jim Beam again. Dr. Justin Frank, a psychiatrist in Washington, offers
that, "I do think that Bush is drinking again. Alcoholics who are
not in any program, like the President, have a hard time when stress gets
to be great. I think it's a concern that Bush disappears during times
of stress. He spends so much time on his ranch. It's very frightening."
- Consider the evidence of an out-of-control alcoholic
offered by Paul Craig Roberts citing a report in Capital Hill Blue quoting
a White House aide: "It's like working in an insane asylum. People
walk around like they're in a trance. We're the dance band on the Titanic,
playing out our last songs to people who know the ship is sinking and none
of us are going to make it." The aide was alluding to Bush's inability
to handle stressful situations as described in the National Enquirer article.
- Roberts continues his column quoting the aide as pointing
out everyone's relief when Bush is out of the White House and on the road,
observing, "Otherwise it is one temper tantrum after another from
Bush, whose cakewalk war, has turned into interminable conflict, whose
idiocy in diverting funding for
- Orleans, levees to war in Iraq was disastrous for the
famous city, and whose Social Security privatization has been rejected
by the electorate.
- Even rah-rah Republican Newt Gingrich says the White
House is surrounded by failure. No member of the White House staff wants
to deliver news to Bush, because the news is bad. Bush demands sycophancy
and equates bad news with disagreement and disloyalty."
- Now imagine that!
- Not only has the war criminal Bush regime returned US
to those thrilling days of the Reich and the Reichstag Fire via 9-11, and
not only has he reintroduced the concepts of the Wehrmacht and the Blitzkrieg,
and not only has he taken US back to the Dark Ages, Star Chamber justice
and the glory of the Spanish Inquisition via Amerika's abandonment of human
rights and its replacement with now-legalized torture, but Bush has also
adopted the time-worn lunacy of blaming the messenger for bad news. My
how we've regressed.
- I guess it won't be long before Bush requests Alberto
Gonzales to draft an appropriately worded piece of legislation that will
take only seconds to ram through our United States Congress of brain-dead
zombies and deranged Democrats to legalize the torture of any and all who
deliver bad news to G. Bush. And once this precedent is established for
our President, can legalized, instantaneous on-the-spot executions be far
- Isn't it clear by now that one who lives by the sword
will die by the sword? Isn't it clear by now that it is possible to fight
fire with fire? Isn't it even clearer that one who lives and succeeds
by constantly lying, especially one who crafts horrendous lies that eventually
kill many people, is eventually going to experience a lot of stress, especially
when a majority of decent people start to learn of such a liar's egregious
and deadly prevarications? Isn't this precisely what is happening right
- As long as a dangerous, lying phony such as Bush can
fool the American people with such lies as "weapons of mass destruction,"
or Niger "yellowcake" and the potential of nuclear attack against
US, or a war necessary to bring about "regime change," or in
order to "bring democracy" to a people by carpet-bombing and
killing every man, woman and child within the walls of defenseless cities,
and as long as the Zionist-dominated mainstream corporate establishment
media covers for him and protects him, Bush will be free of the very stress
he himself has generated for himself and others.
- But then, there's the Internet. Internet operators whose
strength does not originate from legions of university-trained and brainwashed
"journalists," nor from wealthy corporate coffers funded by billions
of dollars in corporate stocks and bonds, nor from row upon row of printing
presses energized by huge vats of printers, ink and rolled carpets of paper,
nor from the towering skyscrapers that house the network broadcast and
cable TV "news" networks, but rather is energized and empowered
by the increasing ranks of insatiable news consumers who are hurting for
the truth, honesty and professionalism so absent in the American media
- You would think that The New York Times and its subservient
network TV stations would have learned some beneficial lessons reflecting
on the Jayson Blair fiasco, or would begin to see the error of their ways
when underreporting the Downing Street Memo, or at least when blacking
out the important Cindy Sheehan-led peace demonstrations held in Washington
during the September 24/25th weekend. But no, the stupid MSM continues
to look at their collective shoe, ignore the news, the truth, the facts,
and then develop glazed-over looks of sadness as they proclaim their own
demise still totally clueless as to what is really happening
- What today's corporate establishment MSM simply fails
to grasp is the entire nature and importance of today's journalism. Not
only is there a significant shift in technology affecting news reporting,
but a lightning rate of change in all technology. It has created an increasingly
dangerous and all-encompassing threat to the world characterized by technologically-intensified
military weapons and communications; it is represented by the rapidly advancing
technology in surveillance and secret monitoring of virtually all aspects
of both public and private life; it manifests itself in the technology
that can forewarn the good and well-intentioned, or make more powerful
and destructive the plans, designs and actions of the bad and immoral.
And as regards the latter, the Bush administration is a perfect example.
- With the dangerous new and deadly "toys" Junior
has at his disposal, a watchful and beneficent protective press is what
is so desperately needed to obstruct and delay a malevolent and technologically
- Against this backdrop, we have a non-responsive MSM press
allowing a technologically advanced and increasingly dangerous government
to careen recklessly and totally out of control. And thus far, it has
been only the Internet that has provided any modicum of obstruction and
forced restraint upon Bush and his War Party of Republicans, Democrats
and Pentagon neocons.
- No wonder government dictatorships such as the one in
China are increasingly concerned about the Internet, and successfully clamping
down on this remnant of a free press. And to be sure, America's organized
political gangsters are already chewing on their eyeglasses wondering how
to fool the growing class of American news consumers by saddling them with
the products of subservient gatekeepers.
- In an increasingly hazardous world teetering on increasingly
dangerous technology in the control of a most dangerous and unstable nation,
a nation that has returned US to the morality of the Dark Ages and its
justice based upon torture, invasion and mass murder, a nation controlled
by the satanic cult-driven motive of world domination and control via the
enslavement of all people, a robust, inquiring press that informs the American
people as opposed to pimping for its dangerous politicians is what is really
- Even as Cheney unconstitutionally planned for the preemptive
nuclear strike of Iran, coupled in all likelihood with a false flag nuclear
attack on a southern American city, this was overtaken by the natural disasters
that were Katrina and Rita in New Orleans. Cheney's horrific plan was
quietly taken "off the table." So now, of course, the Israelites
are here standing on the ties of the empty suits in our brain-dead Congress
of zombies and demanding that we attack Iran immediately
- And who's got the football with all the colored buttons?
Somewhere in Texas, a village has lost its idiot and a town has lost its
drunk - we've got him and he's got the football.
- Now, I know what you're thinking - did the Israelites
and the town drunk blow the levees, or will there be more surprises in
store for US?
- Let me ask you a question - do ya feel lucky?
- Well, do ya?
