The Bright Side of Vote Theft 2004?

I was going to write a very dark and foreboding article, something along the
lines of "America Into the Abyss." Such may turn out to be the case,
yet: one party rule by a fascistic elite, endless wars, conscription, massive
terror attacks, martial law, roundups of dissidents, military tribunals, forced
experimental inoculations - the list is potentially limitless.

But then I had a moment of respite. In a piece called, "Ten Reasons Not
to Move to Canada," I read, "Remember that Nixon was re-elected
with a bigger margin than Bush, but faced impeachment within a year.

Having already tried to impeach the current regime, with no success, and little
likelihood of any in the future, I was not immediately comforted. However, the
criminality of the Bush administration is not something that can be easily hidden
these days, not even from the most gullible of those among us. What's more,
several important legal cases are brewing, any of which could bear fruit.

Some of these cases may be known to you. Valerie Plame was a covert CIA officer
(Non-Official Cover, "NOC"), that is until someone in the Bush White
House told five different reporters about this fact. The result is that Plame's
entire career and ALL OF HER INTELLIGENCE NETWORKS were immediately destroyed,
and the flow of information her efforts were bringing into the US intelligence
establishment stopped abruptly. Many have argued, including Plame's husband,
former Ambassador Joseph Wilson (of Iraq / Niger forged document fame) that
when the Bush White House "outed" Plame, they committed a felony crime
and damaged the national security of the United States. Covering up this crime
is also a crime, which bears the name, "Obstruction of Justice," and
possibly, "Conspiracy."

Plame's work involved a front company in Saudi Arabia that monitored the oil
markets there, in addition to allegedly combating "weapons of mass destruction
getting into the hands of terrorists." The latter activity assures that
this case will receive headlines and foment outrage. The former activity --
monitoring the oil business inside of Saudi Arabia -- could be the actual reason
that Plame was outed and her network taken down. The oil men in the White House
may have had a problem with the CIA knowing too much about their relationships
with the Saudis.

Either way, we now have elements of the CIA in direct opposition to the Bush
White House. Both Bush and Cheney have hired private attorneys over this matter,
and both could eventually face indictment.[2] Capitol
Hill Blue

"Witnesses told a federal grand jury President George W. Bush knew
about, and took no action to stop, the release of a covert CIA operative's
name to a journalist in an attempt to discredit her husband, a critic of administration
policy in Iraq."

Note that's "witnesses," plural.

The September 11th Cover-Up

Nothing will resonate with the American people more than learning that their
own government attacked them on 9-11. There is no wiggle room for mass murdering
Treason. Treason is defined in our Constitution in Article III:

"Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only
in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them
aid and comfort."

-U.S. Constitution

Ellen Mariani, a September 11th widow, has brought a civil lawsuit in federal
court against Bush, Cheney, Ashcroft et al., under the RICO Act. Her central
complaint is that the Bush regime committed Treason by deliberately allowing
the September 11th attacks to succeed and/or aided and abetted the perpetrators.
Details of the lawsuit can be found here: http://911forthetruth.com/

Mrs. Mariani's attorney, Phillip Berg, has recently added a second lawsuit against
the Bush administration. Another 9-11 "hero" has bravely challenged
the cover-up as well. William Rodriguez was at "ground zero" during
the attacks and is credited with helping evacuate hundreds of people from the
World Trade Center. He was the last man to exit the North Tower alive, and he
does not accept the Bush administration's version of the events. These RICO
suits are civil, rather than criminal prosecutions, but they do draw attention
to the mountain of evidence that suggests the 9-11 attacks could only have succeeded
in the manner they did with high level government complicity.

At a time when Zogby reports that 49.3% of New Yorkers "Believe U.S.
Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9/11 Attacks and "Consciously
Failed" To Act"
and a full 66% demand new investigations
into the attacks, the specter of September 11th will haunt the Bush regime each
and every day of its tenuous rule.

Just this week, the Attorney General of the State of New York was
given evidence and complaints
so that a grand jury would convene to investigate
September 11th. The chief investigator is named William Casey, and the Attorney
General is Eliot Spitzer, 120 Broadway, New York City, NY 10271. The phone there
is (212) 416-8000. [4]

A former FBI counter-terrorism investigator and Special Agent, Robert Wright
Jr., has alleged that the FBI blocked legitimate criminal investigations of
terrorists before 9-11. Wright's lawsuit is represented by David Schippers,
ironically enough the man who prosecuted Bill Clinton over the Lewinsky affair.

"… FBI Special Agent (SA) Robert G. Wright, Jr., of the bureau's
Chicago Division, [has] said today that the FBI continues to dodge accountability
and cover-up its negligence and dereliction of duty
in pursuing terrorists who pose a direct threat to the United States."


The lawsuit includes other FBI agents who have remained anonymous in order
to avoid retaliation from inside the FBI.

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has alleged that FBI officials knew of the impending
attacks, and that they failed to act. She also claims to have seen evidence
of ties between US officials and drug smuggling operations in central Asia.
In Edmonds' open letter to 9-11 commissioner Thomas Kean, she writes:

"…four months prior to the September 11 terrorist attacks, in
April 2001, a long-term FBI informant/asset who had been providing the bureau
with information since 1990, provided two FBI agents and a translator with
specific information regarding a terrorist attack … he received information
that: 1) Osama Bin Laden was planning a major terrorist attack in the United
States targeting 4-5 major cities, 2) the attack was going to involve airplanes,
3) some of the individuals in charge of carrying out this attack were already
in place in the United States, 4) the attack was going to be carried out soon,
in a few months. The agents who received this information reported it to their
superior-, Special Agent in Charge of Counterterrorism, Thomas Frields, at
the FBI Washington Field Office…"

Sibel Edmonds has also sued the government, and her allegations have been reported
around the world.

In yet another damaging lawsuit, Stanley Hilton the former chief of staff for Bob Dole, represents 400 of the
family members of the victims of September 11th. Hilton says:

"… we filed the lawsuit last May against Bush and Cheney and
Rumsfeld and several other of the rest of the terrorists that run the U.S.
government for complicity in causing and also in aiding and abetting the 9/11
attacks, in order to promote their political agenda."

Hilton minces no words, as he directly accuses the Bush administration of Treason.

astounding books have come out that allege US government involvement in the
September 11th plot. The most formidable one looks to be by former LAPD detective
Michael Ruppert. In Crossing
the Rubicon, the Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil
Ruppert lays out his case for the prosecution. Ruppert names "… Vice
President Richard Cheney as the prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11,"
and charges that, "… the Israeli and British governments acted as
partners with the highest levels of the American government to help in the preparation
and, very possibly, the actual execution of the attacks."[8]

Ruppert's first print run is reportedly sold out.

Daniel Hopsicker's Mad
Cow Productions
is hoping to give Ruppert a run for his money. Hopsicker's
book Welcome
to Terrorland
investigates the 9-11 "hijackers" and the flight
schools they attended. After three years' investigation, Hopsicker has found,
"a massive cover-up-in-progress in Florida designed to conceal the true
story" of September 11th. Similarly another book: The
New Pearl Harbor by David Ray Griffin reached the bestseller charts with its
examination of September 11th evidence.

So, looking on the bright side: John
F. Kerry was no answer to any of the monumental problems facing us and the world.
Barely discernable from his frat brother Bush, Kerry would not have pursued
these charges. He could easily have made an issue out of any of these crimes
in his failed bid for the presidency. Perhaps he should have, no?

Kerry was no defender of the truth or of the rights of humanity.

Perhaps Bush's Murder Incorporated will topple over, like a staged photo-op
of one of Saddam Hussein's statues. When they do, the world may finally see
a bright side to all of this.

Is "Zarqawi" Another Black-Op?

The Bush administration has
attributed the bulk of the Iraqi resistance to a character named "Abu Musab

There are many people asking the legitimate question: Does Zarqawi even exist?
Given the credibility of Bush and company - the people who brought us phantom
weapons of mass destruction, false links between Saddam and bin Laden, forged
uranium documents, and a stack of other untruths - there is little reason to accept
Bush's super-boogeyman on faith alone.As pointed out in the Asia
(Oct. 15, 2004):

"Not a
single source, anywhere, claims to have actually seen 'Zarqawi' since late 2001
in Afghanistan. Ask the Pentagon. Ask the CIA. Ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
No one, on the record, is able to independently verify that 'Zarqawi' actually

Mainstream US corporate media
has not challenged the administration on this point, nor on most of the other
lies, distortions, omissions or obvious international crimes they have committed.
Rather Reuters, ABC, and Washington Post have uncritically raised the phantom
warrior to the status of a "Zarqawi movement." Never mind they haven't
made the case for Zarqawi the person, alive and breathing.

"'We want
to know what proof there is that Zarqawi is in Fallujah,' Hatem Maddab, a member
of a Fallujah negotiating committee, told Arabic Al Jazeera television (…)
'Zarqawi is like the weapons of mass destruction that America invaded Iraq for,'
(…) 'We hear about that name (Zarqawi), but he is not here. More than 20
or 30 homes have been bombarded because of this Zarqawi and his followers but
only women, children and the elderly have been affected.'"

Why doubt the official story?

Q: Just who has this alleged "Zarqawi" targeted primarily?

A: Iraqis.

Q: What is "Zarqawi's" GOAL in Iraq at this time?

A: To trigger a civil war between Sunnis and Shi'ites.

"… 'Zarqawi'
also released a statement - but with a different voice, saying he was determined
to 'ignite a civil war between Sunnis and Shi'ites'. Curiously enough, that's
exactly what US intelligence wants, a rehashing of the same old British maxim
of 'divide and rule'."

-Asia Times(Oct.
15, 2004)

Most people learned of the
alleged existence of "Zarqawi" when Nicholas Berg was apparently beheaded
in May of 2004. There are several serious problems with the Berg evidence, however.

1) The video
that was allegedly put out by "Zarqawi" showed heavy editing, with
a soundtrack completely out of synchronization from the images. Why?

2) The alleged voice of "Zarqawi" - a Jordanian national - did not
have a Jordanian accent, according to CNN's Arab language experts. (2)

3) The man in the video had two perfectly good legs, whereas the actual Jordanian
Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was reported to have had his leg amputated. (3)

4) Why would a man who deliberately identifies himself wear a black mask to
shield his identity?

5) The "Zarqawi" in the video wore a golden ring, which is forbidden,
and is a telltale sign that the killers were not Jihadists.

6) Nicholas Berg wore an orange jumpsuit - standard prison issue - so are we
to believe that "Al Qaeda" fighters bring along US styled orange prison
wear to clothe their victims in? For what possible reason?

7) This atrocity served the purpose of diverting media attention away from the
Abu Ghraib torture abuse scandal, that had just shocked the world.

Zarqawi's Dubious Existence
Predates the Iraq War (II)

"Zarqawi" was introduced at the United Nations, by Colin Powell on February
5th 2003. Like most of Powell's bogus information, Zarqawi's role was also proven
to be untrue.

Powell claimed that "Zarqawi" was the missing link between
Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. Powell also claimed that "Zarqawi"
was running a poison and chemical warfare training camp in northern Iraq.

No evidence
has ever come out linking Saddam Hussein to Zarqawi, or to bin Laden. Even Bush
and Rumsfeld have admitted as much.

As far as the alleged chemical and poison laboratory
is concerned:

al-Islam - the Islamic group that uses the compound identified as a military
HQ by Powell - yesterday invited me and several other foreign journalists into
their territory for the first time. 'We are just a group of Muslims trying to
do our duty,' Mohammad Hasan, spokesman for Ansar al-Islam, explained. 'We don't
have any drugs for our fighters. We don't even have any aspirin. How can we
produce any chemicals or weapons of mass destruction?'"

- The London Observer's correspondent in Northern Iraq, February 9 2003 (4)

After the camp was destroyed
by cruise missiles, US inspectors also came to the same conclusion:

"A specialized
biochemical team scoured the rubble for samples. They wore protective masks
as they entered a building they suspected was a weapons lab. Inside they found
mortar shells, medical supplies, and grim prison cells, but no immediate proof
of chemical or biological agents."

- Jim Sciutto, ABC News, with US Special Forces in Northern Iraq " (ABC
News, 29 March 2003)

This alleged chemical weapons
story is even more bizarre than it appears. When Colin Powell tells the UN, and
the world, that this camp is evidence of Saddam Hussein's connection to Islamic
terrorists, he neglects to tell us that the camp was in the Kurdish "no fly
zone", and not controlled by Saddam's forces at all. The area was a US protectorate!

has been a creation of US foreign policy, a myth, a fable, the most convenient
man in Bush's alleged "war on terror." Much like Santa Claus, the Easter
Bunny, or the Tooth Fairy "Zarqawi" is a mythical creature that leaves
gifts for those in position to take advantage of them. He is a manufactured enemy,
built to specifications, and his presence ensures outrage and an escalation of
the conflict.

I do not believe in Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.
