Today, Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow, they will be grateful. This is especially true, if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated that threatened our very existence. It is then that all the peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing that every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished with the guarantee of their well-being, granted to them by their world government.

Green Party "Terrorist" Not Allowed to Fly (Jan 12)
Art dealer Doug Stuber, who ran Ralph Nader's Green Party presidential campaign in North Carolina in 2000, was pulled out of an airline boarding line and grounded this past holiday season. He was about to make an important trip to Prague to gather artists for Henry James Art in Raleigh, N.C., when he was told (with ticket in hand) that he was not allowed to fly out that day. When he asked why not, he was told at Raleigh-Durham airport that because of the sniper attacks, no Greens were allowed to fly overseas on that day. The next morning he returned, and instead of paying $670 round trip, was forced into a $2,600 "same day" air fare. But it's what happened to Stuber during the next 24 hours that is even more disturbing. (...) In Greensboro, after Stuber showed his passport he was told that he could not fly overseas or domestically. Undeterred, he next traveled an hour-and-a-half to Charlotte. In Charlotte, the same thing happened. Then Stuber drove three hours to his home after 43 hours of trying to catch a flight. Stuber said he could only conclude that the Greens, whose values include nonviolence, social justice, etc., are now labeled terrorists by the Ashcroft-led Justice Department. Questions about how one gets on a no-fly list creates questions about how to get off it. This is a classic Catch-22 situation. The Transportation Security Agency says it compiles the list from names provided by other agencies, but it has no procedure for correcting a problem. Aggrieved parties would have to go to the agency that first reported their names. But for security reasons, the TSA won't disclose which agency put someone on the no-fly list.
Poll: Americans Want Press Censorship (November 29, 2001)

Hiding the Truth? President Bush's Need-to-Know Democracy (Oct 29, 2003)
(...) Gary Bass, executive director of OMB Watch, an independent public advocacy group, says that the United States, "is moving from a society based on the right to know to one based on the need to know." The breadth and scope of the Bush administration's clamp down on information is the largest such effort to restrict public disclosure since World War II. Because much of these changes have come in little-noticed dribs and drabs since 9/11, many have largely escaped public notice or explanation. In this report we chronicle some of the most significant changes.
The S factor explains Bush's popularity (January 5)
(...) It's increasingly obvious, for example, that none of the so-called theories can explain President Bush's popularity, such as it is. Even at this date in his presidency, after all that has happened, the president's popularity hovers at around 50 percent -- an astonishingly high figure, I believe, given the state of people's lives now as opposed to four years ago. What can explain his popularity? Can that many people be enamored of what he has accomplished in Iraq? Of how he has fortified our constitutional freedoms with the USA Patriot Act? Of how he has bolstered our economy? Of how he has protected our environment? Perhaps they've been impressed with the president's personal integrity and the articulation of his grand vision for America? Is that likely? (...) It's the "Stupid factor," the S factor: Some people -- sometimes through no fault of their own -- are just not very bright. It's not merely that some people are insufficiently intelligent to grasp the nuances of foreign policy, of constitutional law, of macroeconomics or of the variegated interplay of humans and the environment. These aren't the people I'm referring to. The people I'm referring to cannot understand the phenomenon of cause and effect. They're perplexed by issues comprising more than two sides. They don't have the wherewithal to expand the sources of their information. And above all -- far above all -- they don't think. You know these people; they're all around you (they're not you, else you would not be reading this article this far). They're the ones who keep the puerile shows on TV, who appear as regular recipients of the Darwin Awards, who raise our insurance rates by doing dumb things, who generally make life much more miserable for all of us than it ought to be. Sad to say, they comprise a substantial minority -- perhaps even a majority -- of the populace.
Thank You, Franklin Delano Bush
I took the liberty (what few of those I have left) of putting President Bush's November 8 speech - at the Georgia World Congress Center - into the LewRockwell.com "truth translator". This fun, little tool examines and interprets the rhetoric of government spokespersons, and translates such twaddle into the statist prose that it actually represents. What emerges from the translator in this instance is an incriminating verbal assault on the sovereignty of all Americans.
GWB: "I said in my speech to a joint session of Congress that we are a nation awakened to danger. We're also a nation awakened to service and citizenship and compassion."
Your government has kicked around enough beehives and anthills so that it has brought upon us a disturbing new realism: terrorism upon U.S. innocents to pay for the sins of their government. We are a people that must realize it is time to give up our individual liberties and move toward an emotional and unconditional nationalist unity in support of the omnipotent State.
GWB: "None of us would ever wish the evil that has been done to our country, yet we have learned that out of evil can come great good."
As horrible as this act of terrorism was, it has created an opportunity for your government to use a time of crisis in order to scale back your liberties, disrupt your private lives, further regulate and control the free market, and offer you all some added security at the hands of government while convincing you that this supercedes any freedom issues. Without this act of terrorism, your government would not have this glorious opportunity for establishing totalitarian means toward collective ends. CLIP
9/11 Director Gave Evidence To Own Inquiry (Jan 15)
The panel set up to investigate why the United States failed to prevent the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, faced angry questions Thursday after revelations that two of its own senior officials were so closely involved in the events under investigation that they have been interviewed as part of the inquiry.
Philip Zelikow, the commission's executive director, worked on the Bush-Cheney transition team as the new administration took power, advising his longtime associate and former boss, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, on the incoming National Security Council."

Don't fret - the Department of Defense Inc welcomes one and all. You can fight for a passport, fight for a green card, just fight for the Christian, God-fearing hell of it. And you'll be in good hands - Secretary of the Air Force James Roche is a former vice-president at Northrop Grumman; Secretary of the Navy Gordon England is a former executive at General Dynamics; and former Secretary of the Army Thomas E White came direct from those hard-fighting boys at Enron. You're only a few months of training from jury-rigging armour on your combat-unready vehicle, eating out of filthy, Halliburton-run kitchens, sewing patches on your Vietnam-issue flak jacket and tying plastic strips round the wrists of numberless fascinating strangers, often in their own homes. Brits also have local access to a subsidiary enterprise, run to the same exacting standards. French nationals need not apply. Or perhaps you've just finished a tour for Uncle Sam. Maybe you're one of last year's lucky amputees, or you've suffered a recent "mystery illness" or "mental breakdown". Well, give yourself a shake, shine up those new prosthetics and re-enlist today. In other wars you'd have been left idle, but no matter what levels of physical and mental trauma you've endured, this time the Department of Defense Inc still needs you. And with veterans making up 9% of the US population but 23% of the homeless - and Veterans Affairs taking care of 40,000 out of 500,000 - what better options have you got? You have a 50% chance of substance abuse and a 45% chance of mental illness - and let's not even talk about Gulf war syndrome and depleted uranium. In fact, let's not talk about that, ever. And who would miss the chance of serving alongside forces from Kellogg Root Brown, Northrop Grumman and DynCorp International - the war professionals? They can ignore the Geneva convention (they're not protected by it, either) and you can simply dodge round it. Feel like beating some prisoners in Camp Bucca? Confining whole villages as collective punishment? Shooting unarmed civilians? Gunning down a surrendered combatant in the street? Arresting the pesky journalists who'd film you gunning down a surrendered combatant in the street? Failing to establish and sustain civil order? Obtaining information "under duress"?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hot Damn! Design
OPINION: THOUGHTS ON THE COMING "DISCOVERY" OF BIN LADEN
--The Best Propaganda Money can Buy
Unless preparations are made for its eventuality, the announcement of Bin Laden's capture will be the death-knell for the 2004 Democratic campaign. And, like the "heroic rescue" of Jessica Lynch or the toppling of Hussein's statue by "jubilant throngs" of Iraqis, it needn't even be real:
So Democrats must have a pre-emptive strategy in place; the most obvious being, early in the game, to accuse the White House of sitting on Bin Laden for political gain.
A better one is to launch an independent investigation to find Bin Laden first and announce the discovery before Rove's political operatives; this would be a huge coup.
In case you haven't been paying attention, this election year, Republicans are playing a deadly game of attrition -- death by a thousand tiny cuts, so to speak: extreme gerrymandering in Texas, the recall of a governor in California, the installation of inauditable, easily "preprogrammed" DRE e-vote machines in as many counties as will allow them to be stuffed down their throats, relentless and bloody character assassinations in a bought-and-paid-for Murdoch-dominated media empire, absentee ballots counted by an untouchable firm in Kuwait, stacked courts ready to deliver decisions for which 2000's Gore vs. Bush set the precedent.
The odds look dire for Democrats (and, by extension, the majority of Americans, though they are as yet blissfully unaware of the slender thread from which all our liberties hang).
But, in case you haven't connected the dots, this time the GOP is playing for keeps.
Once the fix is in, there will be no turning back: by an invisible, carefully planned coup, the neoconservatives will have transformed America into an autocracy, and any remaining political opposition will be window dressing.
And so, I challenge you: this is a battle we perhaps cannot win, but, at all costs, MUST NOT LOSE.
The consequences of surrender will be incalculable: one by one, like dominos, institutions we cherish will fall -- environmental laws, social security, independent media, healthy advocacy groups, assistance for the unemployed, impoverished and disenfranchised -- and, foremost, the right to choose our leaders.
We will be left with one remaining liberty: the right to choose which products to buy to keep the militaristic money machine well-oiled, and its minders well-heeled.
This year, unless YOU act -- BOLDLY, DECISIVELY, PERSISTENTLY AND INCESSANTLY -- the dream our forefathers nurtured to life will die.
Don't let the dream die.
Stand up and fight for America.
Stand up and fight for the vote.
This will be your last chance.

Shadow Government Is at Work in Secret After Attacks, Bush Ordered 100 Officials to Bunkers Away From Capital to Ensure Federal Survival
By Barton Gellman and Susan Schmidt Washington Post Staff Writers
March 1, 2002
President Bush has dispatched a shadow government of about 100 senior civilian managers to live and work secretly outside Washington, activating for the first time long-standing plans to ensure survival of federal rule after catastrophic attack on the nation's capital. Execution of the classified "Continuity of Operations Plan" resulted not from the Cold War threat of intercontinental missiles, the scenario rehearsed for decades, but from heightened fears that the al Qaeda terrorist network might somehow obtain a portable nuclear weapon, according to three officials with firsthand knowledge. U.S. intelligence has no specific knowledge of such a weapon, they said, but the risk is thought great enough to justify the shadow government's disruption and expense. Deployed "on the fly" in the first hours of turmoil on Sept. 11, one participant said, the shadow government has evolved into an indefinite precaution. For that reason, the high-ranking officials representing their departments have begun rotating in and out of the assignment at one of two fortified locations along the East Coast. Rotation is among several changes made in late October or early November, sources said, to the standing directive Bush inherited from a line of presidents reaching back to Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Exactly 11 years prior, Bush Sr. gave his historical New World Order address
'Toward a New World Order'
A transcript of former President George Herbert Walker Bush's address to a joint session of Congress and the nation From the National Archives September 11, 1990
We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective -- a new world order -- can emerge: a new era -- freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we've known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak. This is the vision that I shared with President Gorbachev in Helsinki. He and other leaders from Europe, the Gulf, and around the world understand that how we manage this crisis today could shape the future for generations to come.

How, What, and Why things are happening as they are
Parts 1 - 5 were part of a research effort that was being conducted prior to the S-11 events. S-11 put my research on a whole new level with increased apprehension and alarm.
Anatomy of a Clampdown Part 01 - An American Problem
"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the 'RIGHT MAJOR CRISES' and the nations will accept the New World Order." -David Rockefeller.
There has been much speculation in the New World Order conspiracy community about how the Clampdown, (shift toward a martial law scenario evolving into a new form of government to replace the United States of America Constitutional Republic) will be orchestrated. One thing that must be understood is that the powers that be do indeed plan on staging real events for terror or political influence, to further a hidden agenda.
This has been shown beyond a reasonable doubt by the release of documents pertaining to Operation Northwoods. CLIP

Their greatest task, I believe, is to manage the martail law scenario. Let me provide a little background on FEMA. CLIP
Part 3 - What It Might Be Like
(...) 15 March 2002 FORT BRAGG, N.C. (Reuters) - President Bush got a first-hand look on Friday at how Army special operations forces break up a mock riot -- complete with anti-American slogans and attack helicopters -- as he prodded Congress to pass his $379 billion defense budget without delay. On a visit to Fort Bragg to rally troops for an expanded war on terrorism, Bush watched an extraordinarily graphic training exercise in the fictional country of "Pineland." As he arrived, the presidential motorcade passed a quiet tree-lined road and a quaint "Welcome to Pineland" sign. Bush came face-to-face with two burned-out school buses and entered a make-shift city overrun with menacing "rioters," who taunted the president as they swarmed over a destroyed tank. From his perch on top of a cinder-block "U.S. Embassy," Bush donned a baseball cap, protective goggles and large ear muffs to watch an elaborate training exercise. Six special forces parachuted from 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) with oxygen, commandos rappelled from a Blackhawk helicopter, and two M-47 Chinooks dropped off armed Army Rangers -- two on motorcycles, seven in a souped-up Land Rover and others on foot. Kicking up dust amid the explosions and commotion, an MH-6 "Little Bird" helicopter fired blanks into the crowd that shook sticks at Bush and chanted "Go home U.S.A.! Go home U.S.A.!" As Bush watched, special forces went room-to-room in an adjacent building using explosives and machine guns to root out rioters where they hid. Army Rangers kept watch from nearby rooftops, and a refueling plane passed overhead, its gas lines tethered to two helicopter. After about 15 minutes, Bush radioed to the commander that the battle was over. Bodies and shells littered the ground as silence fell over "Pineland." "That was exciting. I think they're well trained," Bush said. "I'm glad they're on our side." There has been live ammo training by elite US forces in US civilian towns and sites. (...) "The scenario if I were creating this ops plan [is that] martial law has been declared through presidential powers and war powers act, and some citizens have refused to give up their weapons. They have taken over two of the buildings in Kingsville. The police cannot handle it. So you call these guys in. They show up and they zap everybody, take all the weapons, and let the local Police Department clean it up." Sanchez and other military experts believe PDD 25 is the document being used to authorize such military action with the U.S., and he said, "It's a done deal. I think there's some UN folks involved in this thing too."
Tomas Sanchez is emergency management coordinator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency and head of the military police unit of the Texas State Guard under the National Guard. He's also had 30 years service in Navy intelligence work with a top secret clearance, and he's one of the few people who've seen Presidential Decision Directive 25. CLIP
Part 4 - So, How Serious Are They
Mass Quarantines Likely If America Faced Bioterrorism Attack (FoxNews.com - 8-4-1) CHICAGO - In an America that guards its civil liberties, police can't just shut down cities, make mass arrests and quarantine thousands of people. Or can they? Current and former federal officials said Friday that if there is a terrorist attack with biological weapons, private rights would quickly be swamped by the need to protect the public. State borders could close, vaccines could be rationed or commandeered, the Army could even take over cities within weeks of a deadly attack, an American Bar Association panel predicted. (...)

Emergency Actions (WITH PICTURE OF THE DESERTED REFUGEE CAMP)
I don't know if you remember, but during the Kosovo/Yugoslavia/NATO situation there was a huge number of refugees over in Macedonia. It got very bad.. they said a humanitarian crisis was imminent, that something drastic was going to be done. I saw the pictures of the refugee field. HUGE... dozens of thousands of refugees. It was really something... then in the middle of the night they evacuated ALL of them... the entire bus system was mobilized and-then-some and they carted all the refugees away... Caravans of busses... Refugees had to leave behind all their belongings. I remember seeing the picture the next day of the empty field, with all the stuff left behind. I was uterly amazed. The story was marginalized and I never heard the fate of all the refugees.
Remember: emergency actions are very scary and very real. If it happens here, expect it to be like a bolt of lightning. No time for you to respond. I imagine neighborhoods coming under quarantine pre-dawn - waking people up startled and groggy - on a bus - drugged before they can question the action and processed at the nearest stadium. "This is an Emergency Action, please stay calm, this is for your safety and protection. This is an Emergency Action" played over the PA in a polite, calm voice. No one knowing what's happening in the outside world. Not-to-mention the part about resisters being shot on site, setting an example for Zero Tolerance, or taken separately to the 'camps' for 're-education'. Of course groups of protestors will be kept at bay with Active Denile or related technologies. By the time it's over, the drugs will wear off, people will hardly remember confused details - it will fade into a bad-dream-like-memory. But so much will have changed... So, how serious are they? -- More serious than you!! Remember: THINK LIKE A MILITARY PLANNER: "The people will fall in line because they have no idea what they are up against." CLIP
Part 5 - A Historical Perspective
The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Reichstag Fire (...) Several people reported seeing a heavily armed and equipped bomb squad in the area of the Federal building hours before the bombing. Charles Mankin, director of the University of Oklahoma Geological Survey, reported that, according to two different seismographic records, there were two blasts, eight seconds apart, at the federal building. In fact, news reports within twenty four hours of the bombing reported that there were two explosions. This version subsequently disappeared from all media accounts.
According to "Military Explosives," the Army and Air Force Technical Manual No. 9 -1910, an ammonium nitrate bomb, the type in McVeigh's Ryder truck, could not have, by itself, done the type of damage done to the federal building. This is corroborated by Retired Air Force Brigadier General Benton K. Partin, former commander of the Air Force Armament Technology Laboratory and a 25 year expert on bombs, who stated the following in a news release; "When I first saw the picture of the truck bomb's asymmetrical damage to the federal building in Oklahoma, my immediate reaction was that the pattern of damage would have been technically impossible without supplementary demolition charges at some of the reinforced concrete bases inside the building, a standard demolition technique...reinforced concrete targets in large buildings are hard targets to blast. I know of no way possible to reproduce the apparent building damage through simply a truck bomb effort." Gen. Partin was one of many explosives experts who expressed this opinion.
Why did McVeigh, a highly trained combat NCO, after bombing the Murrah building, speed out of the state at almost 100 mph in a yellow car with no license plate virtually guaranteeing that he would be stopped? National Public Radio, Jan. 1996, interviewed 6 witnesses who personally saw "John Doe II" in the Ryder truck with McVeigh on the morning of the bombing and yet none of these witnesses were contacted to testify by either the prosecution or the defense at the McVeigh trial. Why was the Murrah building, the main piece of evidence that could have unraveled the whole mystery, destroyed? CLIP
PART 6 - 11 September 2001
Terrorism is the most selfish act imaginable. It is contrary to the advancement of civilization and the continuance of freedom, human rights, and personal liberty. Freedom is not free. We are realizing this. We must be prepared to fight for and defend our freedom. Our National Tragedy, exceeding the human, material and economic losses of the Pearl Harbor surprise attack, is different in that it was not an attack to further a military objective, it was a direct attack on freedom, its symbols, its people, its nation. All we've stood for. All we've fought for. You have my blessings and full support. We are Americans and we stand united!

Canada To Turn Over Citizen Tax Data To US (Toronto Sun,1-9-4)
U.S. border agents will soon have access to the immigration and tax records of Canadian residents for use in nabbing terrorists before they cross the American border. U.S. officials said an impending merger of Canadian and U.S. immigration and customs databases will also help them intercept illegal aliens, criminals and fugitives. Officials said the measure will give U.S. front-line agents the power to check Canadian residents -- citizens, immigrants, refugees or visitors -- driving into the U.S. at land crossings. They said U.S. officers will have access to Revenue Canada files, which contain tax information on Canadians, including their work records, property owned and investments. That information may lead to unemployed people being refused entry into the U.S., officers said. The merging of databases is one of 32 points in a smart border action plan that has been in the works since 2002.

9/11 Visibility Project gaining momentum & making news
A new web site has been created to help turn skepticism over the official story on 9/11 and the government's investigation (the "9/11 Commission") into Action - http://www.septembereleventh.org
You can sign up there to support 9/11 victims' family members and others who seek full disclosure of what really happened. Against a wall of secrecy, they need all the help they can get.
National 9-11 Visibility Project is launched, Receives 76,000 hits the first week!! [9-11 Visibility accomplishments below]
The site gives nuts and bolts instructions on how to get mainstream peace & justice activists and organizations involved in the 9-11 truth movement. We need them, there's no time to build a 9-11 movement from scratch. WHY should they be involved? Bush convinced Americans to accept A) Endless Wars, and B) Diminished Civil Rights . . . as the only way to stop future 9-11's. Truth is IF BUSH et al HAD DONE THEIR JOBS before and on 9-11, these wars and the Patriot Act would never be accepted by the American people. THEREFORE THE 9-11 TRUTH MOVEMENT IS THE #1 PEACE & JUSTICE ISSUE, because the peace & justice movement will never be able to convince Americans away from Bush insanity, as all he/they have to do is scream "remember 9-11," to get their way. For the peace & justice movement to ignore the 9-11 cover up, is like someone trying to put an oil fire out by dowsing the flames over and over, while saying "don't pay any attention to that lake of oil."
The site has a Rapid Action Email 9-11 Alert program, that you can add you email address to. It offers breaking 9-11 cover up related news, all from mainstream media. Our goal was to create a 9-11 portal that mainstream Americans and media would feel comfortable with. We need to mainstream the 9-11 truth movement.
We've launched mass public 9-11 cover up demonstrations in Kansas City, and Seattle, and just added San Francisco and Amherst Mass. to local city actions [Add you local 9-11 groups contact at www.septembereleventh.org] And we promote 9-11 MeetUps to all our visitors.
We've distributed over 10,000 deception dollars, and again are promoting 9-11 MeetUps through our site. The 9-11 MeetUps and 9-11 Visibility go hand in hand. 9-11 Visibility's www.septembereleventh.org provides 9-11 MeetUp groups with tools to hit the ground running. ie downloadable flyers, posters, organizing tips and instructions, and PHOTOS of mass 9-11 actions to enable cities across the country to envision what is possible their cities.
We've prodded the Kansas City Star (a conservative paper) into condemning Bush's 9-11 cover up. We've gained attention from local TV media, one station reporting as they covered our "Stop Bush's 9-11 Cover Up" demonstration, "It's been two long years and there are more questions than answers for the 9-11 families about the events on 9-11. Many local Kansas Citizens are saying IT"S BEEN LONG ENOUGH and lending their support and calling for President Bush to make public "all" 9-11 information," stated the news announcer with a protest sign saying "Support the 9-11 Families - Demand Bush Stop Blocking the 9-11 Investigations" and American flags waving in the screen.
Our protests feature signs saying "Support the 9-11 Families . . . Demand Bush Stop Blocking the 9-11 Investigations" and "Stop the Bush 9-11 Cover Up". Everyone brings American flags to our rallies.
We've connect with 9-11 family members who are active, posting a memorial of 9-11 activist Bill Doyle's son Joey Doyle, and are in touch with over 6,000 9-11 victim's family members.
We also provide powerful Internet Activist kits and instructions, including a mass media email list for all to use ONLY for the 9-11 truth issue, with many thousands of mass media email contacts (CNN, FOX, ABC, Canadian, British, alternative, etc. etc.)
PLEASE urge all you can to utilize the tools at www.septembereleventh.org and to spread the word on it to every activist list serve, group, school, church, etc. etc. ALSO, WE NEED DONATIONS. We've invested much personally to create these amazing tools, and there is much more to do. We've only just begun!!

At http://www.911visibility.org and http://www.septembereleventh.org we are getting thousands of unique visitors every day. Many of them are likely from your geographical area.
We offer 9-11 action groups, like yours, free contact listing, in order to connect you with these new people who want to get involved. A week after Amherst Mass, listed, 3 Amherst area people contacted them to get involved.
WE KNOW THERE ARE MORE 9-11 ACTIVIST GROUPS THAN JUST NYC, SAN FRANCISCO, SEATTLE, AND KANSAS CITY . . . WHERE ARE YOU??
All we need to get your city up is:
CITY/NATION: GROUP NAME: [if you don't have one, could be "Albany 9-11 Truth Group"] EMAIL CONTACT: SUMMARY OF PAST EVENTS [IF ANY]: CALENDAR OF UPCOMING 9-11 EVENTS: PHOTOS [IF YOU HAVE THEM] OF PAST EVENTS:
Why is it important that you list? Bush et al have deliberately cultivated a culture of fear in America that paralyzes many who see through the manipulation. When people see a brush fire of groups popping up, and photos of ordinary people like you and I standing up in our cities for 9-11 truth, it gives them courage.
We need your local 9-11 organizing contact info to start this brush fire in people's minds. HOWEVER, why not be connecting with the thousands of visitors coming to our site every day. Many are in your area. They want to help, but can't find you.
Time is short, let's utilize all our resources. We are here to help!!

Two Loud Words
By William Rivers Pitt
t r u t h o u t | Perspective
05 January 2004
There have always been 'third-rail' issues in American politics, subjects that, if touched upon, will lead to certain political death. For a long while, and until very recently, Social Security was one of these issues.
A new one, surrounding the attacks of September 11, has been born in this political season. If September 11 is discussed, the only allowable sub-topic to be broached is whether or not the Bush administration is capable of keeping us safe from another onslaught.
Friday's edition of the Boston Globe had a case in point on the front page. An article titled 'For Bush, Readiness is Key Issue' stated that, "In speech after speech, President Bush has emphasized his administration's pledge never to forget the lessons of Sept. 11. He says the top goal of his administration is to prevent another attack." The Globe article contained, in the next paragraph, the standardized rejoinder: "And while Democratic opponents of the administration are unanimous in their hope that that vulnerability is not exposed with deadly results, they have also argued that Bush has done far too little to protect the country from another attack. He has refused to adequately reimburse state and local officials for homeland security costs, they argue, and has ignored dangerous gaps in air cargo and port security."
Thus, the 'preparedness-gap' becomes the whittled-down talking point du jour. This is a whiff of colossal proportions, the implications of which will echo down the halls of history unless someone develops enough spine to speak the truth into a large microphone. The talking point is not difficult to manage. It was splashed in gaudy multi-point font across the front page of the New York Post in May of 2002.
Two words: 'Bush Knew.'
This administration must not be allowed to ride their criminal negligence into a second term. Someone needs to say those two words. Loudly. After all, Bush has proven with Social Security, and with September 11, that third rails can be danced across. All it takes is a little boldness.

Masters of Deception
By BOB HERBERT
It was snowing and the temperature was headed toward single digits when I left the hotel on Park Avenue Wednesday night. A doorman flagged a cab and I climbed in. I'd just finished an interview with Al Gore and it was hard to shake the melancholy feeling that the man who should be president was spending a stormy night in Midtown Manhattan while the momentous world events he should be shaping were careering in all sorts of dangerous directions.
The former vice president was in town to give a speech on the Bush administration's environmental policies, which he basically described as an exercise in wholesale environmental destruction. Instead of caving in to such special interests as the coal, oil and chemical industries (as the administration has done), Mr. Gore said that the U.S. should be leading the effort to rein in pollution and get control of the potentially devastating problem of global warming.
During the interview, he spoke passionately about the environment and opened his laptop computer to give what amounted to a spontaneous seminar on global warming. He noted that most of the glaciers in the world are melting at an alarming rate and added wryly, "Glaciers don't give a damn about politics. They just reflect reality."
The environmental speech, which he delivered at the Beacon Theater on the Upper West Side yesterday afternoon, is the latest in a series of formal critiques of the administration that Mr. Gore has delivered in recent months. Previous subjects have been national security, economic policy and civil liberties.
The theater, including the balcony, was packed. People had waited in a long line in the cold and snow to pass through metal detectors and be allowed in. The crowd, enthusiastic from the very beginning, included families with small children, elderly men and women and students. When Mr. Gore strode onto the stage he was greeted with a long standing ovation.
At one point, he told his audience: "In preparing this series of speeches, I have noticed a troubling pattern that characterizes the Bush-Cheney administration's approach to almost all issues. In almost every policy area, the administration's consistent goal has been to eliminate any constraints on their exercise of raw power, whether by law, regulation, alliance or treaty. And in the process, they have in each case caused America to be seen by the other nations of the world as showing disdain for the international community."
Amid cheers, he made it clear that the broad interests of the American public are consistently betrayed by the policies and practices of President Bush and his administration. "They devise their policies with as much secrecy as possible," he said, "and in close cooperation with the most powerful special interests that have a monetary stake in what happens. In each case, the public interest is not only ignored, but actively undermined. In each case, they devote considerable attention to a clever strategy of deception that appears designed to prevent the American people from discerning what it is they are actually doing.
"Indeed, they often use Orwellian language to disguise their true purposes. For example, a policy that opens national forests to destructive logging of old-growth trees is labeled Healthy Forest Initiative. A policy that vastly increases the amount of pollution that can be dumped into the air is called the Clear Skies Initiative."
Our history has shown that we can and should be better than this. Mr. Gore leaned forward during Wednesday night's interview and ticked off some of the nation's greatest successes the simultaneous victories in Europe and the Pacific during World War II, the Marshall Plan, the eradication of polio, the civil rights movement, the space program and the victory over Communism in the cold war. There is no reason to expect less, he said, as the country faces its biggest challenges today.
The fates dealt Mr. Gore and the United States a weird hand in 2000. He got the most votes but the other guy became president. And the country, its Treasury looted and its most pressing needs deliberately ignored, has been rolling backward ever since.
"This is insanity," said Mr. Gore, referring to the administration's handling of the environment. But his speech made it clear that he could just as easily have applied that sentiment to the full range of Bush-Cheney policies. History will not be kind to the chicanery that passes for governing in the Bush II administration.

List of interviewees in Move On's UNCOVERED film - A mix of genuine dissent and duplicity
George $oros, the billionaire behind Move On
Late in 2003, the internet organization Move On and the Center for American Progress released the film "Uncovered: the whole truth about the Iraq war" with a simultaneous showing at more than 2,600 locations across the country. This film is a systematic deconstruction of many of the lies that were used to sell the Iraq war, using interviews with Administration whistleblowers, intelligence insiders, politicians and other officials. The film will probably be extremely effective in re-mobilizing the energy of the peace movement that had enormous demonstrations against the war into energy to supporting the Democratic presidential campaign.
Move On, however, is a curious paradox. The group is becoming very influential at mobilizing dissent. Move On is piggybacking on widespread disgust with Bush while seeking to carefully circumscribe the range of acceptable debate. It is also a sophisticated effort to ensure that this dissent does not probe too deep into the current realities of the Homeland Security States of America.
"Uncovered" did a great job in deconstructing some of the false claims by the Bush administration to justify the invasion of Iraq. However, it also disseminated a number of other lies and blatant omissions.
This movie claims to be "the whole truth" about the Iraq war, but does not mention O I L as a motivation for the war. This raises some serious questions about the film's true purpose, especially since has a number of CIA agents who have tactical disagreements with Bush's approach but still support more wars for empire and oil domination. Perhaps "The internecine fight between the Neo-Conservatives and the Neo-Liberals over Bush's management of the War that Will Not End in Our Lifetime" would be a better title for the film. It is not the "the whole truth" about the Iraq war but instead has CIA agents staging "limited hang outs" (fessing up to small crimes to avoid the deeper scandals) that carefully avoids any of the core reasons for the war.
The best disinformation is mostly correct, since that makes the lies more palatable. This "anti-war" film which urges peace activists to support the "war on terror" is a phony opposition to the war.
The ONLY mention of O I L in "Uncovered" DONALD RUMSFELD So the money's going to come from Iraqi OIL revenue as everyone has said. They think it's going to be something like 2 billion dollars this year, they think it might be something like 15, 12 next year. They think it might be something like 18 to 20 plus the next, 19? VOICE 19. RUMSFELD -the next year. GEORGE W. BUSH I will soon submit to Congress a request for 87 billion dollars.
The only other location in the film's transcript where the letters "o i l" are found together is: JOE WILSON What you're doing when you expose a CIA officer, of any name, you're basically taking their entire career and flushing it down the tOILet.
Omissions in Uncovered
The most amazing fact about Uncovered is that it did not even hint at OIL as a factor in the war. There was no mention of the economic battle between petro-dollars and petro-euros (Iraq had started selling its oil in Euros, which threatened to undermine the dollar). In the long run, the worst omission is the failure to discuss the fact that we are near, if not at, the peak of global oil production, since that is the reason the US has not designed an "exit strategy"-the occupation (and eventual replacement by a puppet regime) will continue for the remaining decades of the Petroleum Era. While a one hour film is inadequate to discuss all of the aspects of a very complex issue, to avoid any mention of OIL as a motivation for the war raises serious questions about Move On and their allies (and their funders' political goals).
An obvious lie from the Bush regime that should have been included was the May 2003 claim that the war was over. Bush was flown to an aircraft carrier off the coast of San Diego to be photographed in front of a banner stating "Mission Accomplished." This is probably the most ridiculous visual from the regime that could be pilloried as blatant propaganda.
Uncovered did not include any discussion of US war crimes against civilians and the military murder of journalists, nor did it discuss the Pentagon's use of uranium tipped weapons (euphemistically called "depleted uranium"), which will cause disease and death for generations to come. Dropping uranium weapons is a form of genocide (the Genocide convention prohibits "Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group," and uranium weapons used in the 1991 Gulf War have already caused substantial numbers of severe birth defects among Iraqi children). US strategies against civilians resemble Israeli "collective punishment" waged against the Palestinian population - and it is well documented that the American and Israeli militaries are strategizing together to perfect the new occupation.
Lies in Uncovered
The most blatant lie perpetuated in Uncovered is that peace activists should support the war on terror (as opposed to the supposedly separate invasion of Iraq). This is a very curious position for a "peace" organization to advocate, because (1) the "war on terror" is based on the false claim that 9/11 was a surprise attack and (2) the "terror" war and the invasion of Iraq are part of the same global domination strategy. See http://www.oilempire.us/911why.html
puzzle for more on this connection. Canadian journalist and media commentator Barrie Zwicker, whose film The Great Deception is the single best documentary on 9/11, made these comments on April 21, 2003 at premier showing of "Aftermath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11," San Francisco, CA - http://www.oilempire.us/movies.html
My offering is that 9/11 was what the anarchist Bakunin called "the propaganda of the act." That it was "Reichstag Fire 2001." That it was the greatest deception of its kind ever foisted. And that's saying something, in light of the long and totally-neglected history of this kind of war-triggering deception perpetrated by powerful special interests to sway public opinion in favour of deadly agendas that almost always result in serious grief for just about everyone.
My offering is that 9/11 was arranged to jump start the so-called war on terrorism, which in turn is the cover and heat exchanger for hot wars, these being the toxic tip of the machinery for world domination. At the levers is a clique of neocons that has hijacked this country's foreign policy at the behest largely and to the benefit mainly of Big Arms and Big Oil, with the rest of the worst at the top, giving the thumbs-up and boarding the gravy train.
Obviously, Move On wants the peace movement to "Move On" from allegations that Bush let 9/11 happen, or worse, was complicit in the attacks.
Move On claims that the Bush administration decision to invade Iraq was made after 9/11. In reality, the Bush administration made up its mind to seize Iraq before they stole the White House. "Rebuilding Ameirca's Defenses," a September 2000 report from the Project for a New American Century-essentially the blueprint for the current wars-stated that the US should attack Iraq and occupy the Middle East, even if Saddam Hussein was deposed.
Iraq is a critical part of the PNAC plan for world conquest, and the main question now is which country will be the next target. Will it be Iran or North Korea (the other member of the so-called "Axis of Evil"), Syria (perhaps the preferred target of Israel), or Saudi Arabia (the only country that still has spare capacity to increase daily oil extraction rates, which have become more critical as a resource now that the world has arrived at peak oil, Iraqi oil production is a shambles and the hoped for Saudi-sized oil riches of Central Asia now seem to have been exaggerated by about 80%).
While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein. ... In the post-Cold War era, America and its allies, rather than the Soviet Union, have become the primary objects of deterrence and it is states like Iraq, Iran and North Korea who most wish to develop deterrent capabilities. Projecting conventional military forces or simply asserting political influence abroad, particularly in times of crisis, will be far more complex and constrained when the American homeland or the territory of our allies is subject to attack by otherwise weak rogue regimes capable of cobbling together a miniscule ballistic missile force. Building an effective, robust, layered, global system of missile defenses is a prerequisite for maintaining American preeminence. * Project for a New American Century
The PNAC report, which was signed by many of the top officials of the Bush regime, also made this bold prediction exactly a year before 9/11: "The process of [military] transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor." Zbigniew Brzezinski, who serves in the Carter, Reagan and Bush (the First) administrations, wrote a book in 1997 titled "The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives"that stated that the US should control the world, and to do that would require controlling Eurasia. This goal would give the US control over most of the world's energy reserves, and it predicted that the US would be engaged in war precisely where we have embarked on World War. However, he knew that this task would not be universally popular, as shown by this conclusion: "Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat."
Brzezinski still has considerable influence in both imperial political parties, and his book is one of many pieces of evidence that the establishment has planned the takeover of the Middle East oil fields for a long time. 9/11 merely provided the political pretext and the psychological shock to permit these invasions to take place.
Uncovered echoed the tired, false official claims that 9/11 was a surprise attack. While Move On's "misleader.org" division has published a report that shows that the Bush administration did have some prior knowledge of the "attack," that report still doesn't go beyond the "incompetence" theory of 9/11. After more than two years of leaks, connecting the dots, and numerous serious independent investigations it is clear that the only possible accurate debate would be whether the Bush regime merely let 9/11 happen for political benefits or actually engineered the attacks.
Discussion of whether Bush's assistants were lying when they claimed that they couldn't have envisioned a plane-into-building scenario are a distraction from deeper, more compelling evidence of complicity, especially since the CIA and National Reconnaissance Office were practicing a plane-into-building emergency exercise in Virginia on the morning of 9/11. http://www.oilempire.us/911.html
A much better film about US / Iraq relations
Hidden Wars of Desert Storm
http://hiddenwars.com (Official site for the film)
Acclaimed by the NY Times as an "uncommonly sober, well-researched film", "Hidden Wars of Desert Storm" investigates the origins of the Gulf War, explains the US Gov.'s specific motives in going at war in 1991 and exposes the mechanisms of war-profiteering that seem destined to shape US foreign policies time after time. The doc also covers the Pentagon's use of radioactive ammunitions in the Gulf and their impact on both the local populations and allied forces.
Find out today why this incredible, award-winning documentary has been shown and acclaimed in well over 30 countries including all of Europe but has been forcefully shuned by all the US mainstream media. Featuring exclusive interviews of Norman Schwarzkopf, Ramsey Clark, Denis Haliday and Scott Ritter as well as unseen before war footage and documents. Narrated by John Hurt.

MoveOn is a core part of the Democratic party wing of the establishment to co-opt and muzzle dissent, an effort to support the CIA's fight with the Bush administration to ensure that dissent stays limited enough to ensure "regime rotation" instead of "regime change" in November. Regime Rotation consists of unseating Bush but replacing him with another President who will continue the empire's global domination efforts, although with more tact, better speeches and a few token distractions for domestic and international opinion increasingly opposed to the Bush regime's outrages.
Regime Rotation exposes the war on Iraq as a deception, but not the September 11 "Reichstag Fire." Regime rotation recommends that 9/11 be seen as a result of incompetence and / or lack of coordination by the intelligence agencies (which only need more billions and less restrictions to ensure it won't happen again), even though there is an enormous amount of evidence that 9/11 was an "inside job."
Regime Rotation wants to keep the occupation of Iraq going. The three main opposition candidates - Clark, Dean and Kerry - all support keeping troops in the oil fields, although they state that the invasion was a mistake. A Democratic victory in November would allow Bush and the Project for a New American Century "neo-conservatives" to have done the dirty work getting the oil wars going (and "homeland security" to be installed for addressing domestic dissent as the economy continues to unravel), and allow the "Good Cop" of a Democrat to continue the war with less domestic opposition, UN blessing and European money and soldiers. These oil wars are the United States's response to peak oil, and will continue as long as the oil lasts (Cheney calls it the war that will not end in our lifetime) or until the US is willing to undertake a massive reduction of energy consumption and investment of resources into a more locally based, renewable energy society.

Seemingly Unsolvable Legal Traps Face an Administration Running Out of Wiggle Room - Something "Big" Will Prevent Saddam from Coming to Trial
July 1, 2003 -- Let's just suppose for a moment that George W. Bush was removed from the White House. Cheney, Powell, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Wolfowitz and Rove too. What would that leave us with? It would leave us stuck in hugely expensive, Vietnam-like guerrilla wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It would leave us with the Patriot Act, Homeland Security and Total Information Awareness snooping into every detail of our lives. It would leave us with a government in violation of the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th Amendments to the Constitution. It would leave us with a massive cover-up of US complicity in the attacks of 9/11 that, if fully admitted, would show not intelligence "failures" but intelligence crimes, approved and ordered by the most powerful people in the country. It would leave us with a government that now has the power to compel mass vaccinations on pain of imprisonment or fine, and with no legal ability to sue the vaccine makers who killed our friends or our children. It would leave us with two and half million unemployed; the largest budget deficits in history; more than $3.3 trillion missing from the Department of Defense; and state and local governments broke to the point of having to cut back essential services like sewers, police, and fire. It would leave us with a federal government that had hit the debt ceiling and was unable to borrow any more money. And we would still be facing a looming natural gas crisis of unimagined proportions, and living on a planet that is slowly realizing that it is running out of oil with no "Plan B". Our airports however, would be very safe, and shares of Halliburton, Lockheed and DynCorp would be paying excellent dividends.
This is not good management.
Leaving all of these issues unaddressed is not good management either. And this is why, as I will demonstrate in this article, the decision has already been made by corporate and financial powers to remove George W. Bush, whether he wants to leave or not, and whether he steals the next election or not. Before you start cheering, ask yourself three questions: "If there is someone or something that can decide that Bush will not return, nor remain for long, what is it? And if that thing is powerful enough to remove Bush, was it not also powerful enough to have put him there in the first place? And if that is the case, then isn't that what's really responsible for the state of things? George W. Bush is just a hired CEO who is about to be removed by the "Board of Directors". Who are they? Are they going to choose his replacement? Are you going to help them? What can change this Board of Directors and the way the "Corporation" protects its interests? These are the only issues that matter.
So now the honest question about the 2004 Presidential campaign is, "What do you really want out of it?" Do you want the illusion that everything is a little better while it really gets worse? Or are you ready yet to roll up your sleeves and make some very unpleasant but necessary fixes? The greatest test of the 2004 presidential election campaign is not with the candidates. It is with the people. There are strong signs that presidential election issues on the Democratic side are already being manipulated by corporate and financial interests. And some naïve and well-intentioned (and some not-so-naïve and not-so-well intentioned) activists are already playing right into the Board's hands. There are many disturbing signs that the only choice offered to the American people will be no choice at all. Under the psychological rationale, "This is the way it has to be done", campaign debates will likely address only half-truths and fail to come to grips with - or even acknowledge - the most important issues that I just described. In fact, only the least important issues will likely be addressed in campaign 2004 at the usual expense of future generations who are rapidly realizing that they are about to become the victims of the biggest Holocaust in mankind's history. The final platforms for Election 2004 will likely be manifestos of madness unless we dictate differently.
Some on the Democratic side are already positioning themselves to co-opt and control what happened on 9/11 into a softer, less disturbing "Better this than nothing" strategy. This attitude, that the only thing that matters is finding an electable Democrat, is nothing more than a rearrangement of deck chairs on the Titanic. Has everyone suddenly forgotten that the 2000 election was stolen: first by using software and political machinery to disenfranchise tens of thousands of eligible voters, then by open interference at polling places, and finally by an absolutely illegal Supreme Court decision? Do these people believe that such a crime, absolutely successful the first time, will never be attempted again?
And has everyone also forgotten that in the 2002 midterm elections the proprietary voting software, in many cases owned by those affiliated with the Republican Party or - as in the case of Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska * the candidates themselves, has been ruled by the Supreme Court to be immune from public inspection. (Hagel won by a lopsided 83% majority). Throughout the United States in 2002 there was abundant evidence that the so-called "solution" to hanging chads did nothing more than enshrine the ability to steal elections with immunity and also much less fuss afterwards? Who in their right mind would trust such a system? Why have none of the candidates mentioned it?
And, if all else fails, we can have more Wellstone plane crashes. It has worked with three Democratic Senate candidates in key races over the last thirty years. Maybe that's why no one in Congress is talking about the election process. Plane crashes are part of that process too. Unless people find the will to address scandals, lies, and betrayals of trust that, by their very existence, reveal that the system itself is corrupt and that the people controlling it - both in government, and in America's corporations and financial institutions-are criminals, there is no chance to make anything better, only an absolute certainty that things will get worse. ....

There is only one difference between the evidence showing the Bush administration's criminal culpability in and foreknowledge of the attacks of 9/11, and the evidence showing that the administration deceived the American public about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. Both sets of evidence are thoroughly documented. They are irrefutable and based upon government records and official statements and actions shown to be false, misleading or dishonest. And both sets of evidence are unimpeachable. The difference is that the evidence showing the Iraqi deception is being seriously and widely investigated by the mainstream press, and actively by an ever-increasing number of elected representatives. That's it.
The Center for American Progress
This group, which co-sponsored the "Uncovered" film, is a Democratic party think tank in Washington, DC. Its website - americanprogress.org - shows carefully nuanced support for the "War on Terror," the Homeland Security" scare system, and other pillars of the new world war.
"In a world of unprecedented threats, the Center for American Progress encourages policies that protect the American people and further our national interests. We promote the need for a strong, smart military and believe that America must safeguard its homeland, fight terrorism and take on threats that know no borders. And we believe that America's interests are advanced when we strengthen alliances and work with multilateral institutions that support the rule of law."
In other words, we want to continue the "War on Terror" but we would prefer it if we could get Europe to help shoulder the burden for troops and the cost of occupying the Mideast oil fields.
CAP "senior fellow" P.J. Crowley, a Clinton administration military official, wrote a January 6, 2004 article titled "Code Orange" that accepted most of the core paradigms used by the Bush administration's psychological terror campaign against the American public. It does have some limited criticisms of Bush's "Homeland Security" program, claiming that we're not spending enough on it, that we are not yet screening every visitor to the country, and does not even hint at any possibilities that even some of the "Terror" alerts could be an effort to dominate the public consciousness, especially in an election year.
Comparing this column at http://www.americanprogress.org/site/pp.asp?c=biJRJ8OVF&b=18264
and Orange Code Terror Alert based on Fabricated Intelligence by Michel Chossudovsky at http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO401A.html is like reading about parallel universes. Considering the long history of deception and staged terror to panic populations into supporting war, any legitimate investigation would include the volume of evidence that suggests that these tactics are at the core of the 9/11 story.
CAP's December 16, 2003 page about the "Status of al-Qaeda" completely supports the official Bush administration view. There is not any mention of how al-Qaeda's predecessor was established by the CIA and Pakistani intelligence, and that the US has worked with al-Qaeda for many years, including in Kosovo during the war in former Yugoslavia. See http://www.oilempire.us/qaeda.html for more on that.
Michel Chossudovsky states that al-Qaeda is essentially an "intelligence asset," an organization that performs certain useful tasks despite not being pro-American. CAP endorses the Homeland Security surveillance system that is photographing and fingerprinting foreign arrivals at US airports, and their complaints about the program focus on the incompleteness of the effort. While they have some civil liberties concerns about this, they don't make the most obvious comment that this policy is a step toward a totalitarian surveillance society where "biometric" screening will be needed for travel. "Only the first phase of US VISIT has been implemented, leaving substantial vulnerabilities at our borders"

CAP's views on civil liberties are schizophrenic - the "war on terror" is the root cause of the decimation of domestic liberties underway since 9/11 (and before that excuse was perpetrated). Undoing this assault is unlikely to happen without a full exposure of the deepest, ugliest truths of 9/11 complicity.
"The Bush administration has done an impressive job of showing the world what we're against, but has been far less adept at showing the world what we're for. Protecting and defending America's security cannot be just about fighting evil or killing our enemies. It must also be about protecting and defending fundamental rights."
Move On and Impeachment
Move On was founded by wealthy Silicon Valley Democrats as a Clinton support group during his impeachment in 1998. Move On meant "Censure and Move On," urging an end to the Republican's impeachment campaign for the President's lying about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was eventually impeached by the House, but not convicted by the Senate, so he was allowed to serve out his second term.
This approach-to impeach on the less serious charges and ignore the more serious crimes-was used in both Clinton's impeachment and the threatened impeachment of Richard Nixon in 1974. Clinton's crimes included much deeper issues than Monica - his involvement as Governor in the Iran-Contra scandal (helping to coverup the CIA's use of the Mena, Arkansas airport to smuggle cocaine to fund the contra war) would have been a much more important prosecution. And Nixon was slated to be impeached for lying, burglary and obstruction in the Watergate scandal, but an Impeachment resolution for his illegal bombing of Cambodia was not voted on favorably by the House Judiciary Committee. In other words, Nixon, if he hadn't resigned to avoid impeachment, would have been impeached for Watergate but not for mass murder.
In scandal after scandal, this is how the American empire has managed the crises-the "limited hang out" (fessing up to a small crime to avoid looking at the deeper crimes). See http://www.oilempire.us/limited.html for several articles that address "Limited Hang Outs" in the context of 9/11.
A side note: Move On seems to be uninterested in efforts to support the impeachment of the Bush administration, even though their two million email contacts could be very effective at elevated the concept of (and reasons for) impeachment if they dared to discuss it. This hesitation parallels the reluctance of the Democratic party to support efforts to impeach Reagan (in 1987 for Iran-Contra) and Bush the First (in 1991 for preparing the Iraq war without Congressional approval). In those cases, the late Representative Henry Gonzalez (D-TX) filed impeachment resolutions but could not find a single co-sponsor. Why are the Democrats so allergic to impeachment? Is it because they fear the covert power of the military / intelligence complex?

Subject: Tangled Web
Excerpt from U.S. Right Weaves Tangled But Effective Web
By Jim Lobe
(Originally published in Asia Times, December 24, 2003)
While most of the world is still trying to come to terms with the neo-imperial ambitions of the post-September 11 Bush administration, U.S. political analysts, particularly those on the libertarian right and the left, have been trying to map out the [network] behind the administration's hawks the better to understand and counteract them. ...
The network consists of a very small elite, much smaller for example than the post-World War II internationalist "establishment" that includes such institutions as the Council on Foreign Relations, the foreign service and the Wall Street lawyers, financiers and business executives who have long dominated U.S. foreign policy.
To understand its dimensions and the way it works, Tom Barry and the Interhemispheric Resource Center (for which this author has written articles for compensation) compare it to a spider's web--hence the name of their latest Internet website, Right Web, probably the most comprehensive and integrated effort yet to link the various connections and relationships that have given the Right its power and influence.
The site, which is still being developed, covers some 175 individuals and dozens of organizations that have constituted the network over the past quarter-century. Even a brief meander through the site demonstrates both just how small and incestuous this network has been and how ambitious are its goals, both in foreign and domestic policy.
Chances are, for example, that you have never heard of the Foundation for Community and Faith-Centered Enterprise, an innocent-sounding initiative that suggests church-based community organizing or perhaps a philanthropic group that awards grants to church-related business initiatives. In fact, the foundation and its sister group, Americans for Community and Faith-Centered Enterprise, were founded in mid-2001 by Michael Joyce, a right-wing kingpin who helped turn the Bradley Foundation into the rainmaker of an ever-growing network of institutes, publications and think-tanks.
Joyce told the Washington Post in June 2001 that he launched the two groups at the behest of Rove, who was looking for ways to bolster public support for Bush's efforts to fund religious organizations that provide social services.
If you look more closely at the group's profile on the website, you'll get a better idea of how this two-year-old organization fits into the larger network of the US right. Its associates include William Kristol, the editor of Rupert Murdoch's Weekly Standard and chairman of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), and another neoconservative, former education secretary William Bennett, for whom Kristol once worked.
Midge Decter, another prominent neoconservative who co-headed (with Rumsfeld) the Committee for the Free World during the administration of president Ronald Reagan, currently serves on the foundation's board of visitors, while Jeffrey Bell, former president of another neoconservative think-tank, the Manhattan Institute, serves as the group's Washington lobbyist.
You will find further that all of these individuals have supported the work of PNAC, which played a key role in pushing Bush to war in Iraq, and whose founding statement in 1997 was signed by Rumsfeld, Vice President Dick Cheney and more than half a dozen other top Bush foreign-policy figures, all identified as key hawks.
