My Way of the Cross
Speaking at a veterans' celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas, on Feb. 19, (Republican Congressman) Johnson told the crowd that he explained his theory to President Bush and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) on the porch of the White House one night. Johnson said he told the president that night, 'Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on ‘em and I’ll make one pass. We won’t have to worry about Syria anymore.'
And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, the GOP came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
WARNING of repercussions on US-Philippine relations, former President Fidel V. Ramos last night challenged the United States to explain a US Embassy report linking him to a supposed planned coup against President Macapagal-Arroyo.
Shall We All Say Amen ?
We have been taught to say Amen at the end of every prayer. We are also taught that we should only consider teachings from our particular Christian group. We should never consider foreign religions or strange god. In Egyptian mythology Amun is the ram headed God. He is the King of all Gods. Great temples were built for his worship. Amun was also known as Amen. So everytime Christians end their prayers with the word Amen, they are paying homage to the Egyptian ram headed God. The Sun God. ~ Bill Donahue - hiddenmeanings.com
Can I get an Amen please ?
THE CONGRESSMAN AND THE BOMB
A Republican Congressman was recently speaking at a church in Texas. His name is Sam Johnson and he was speaking at a Christian Church in Texas. He said that the United States should drop a nuclear bomb on Syria and the Christian audience jumped to their feet and roared with applause. Between their affection for dropping bombs on other people and for molesting children, Christianity has established itself as the true anti-Christ.

The War Crimes Act of 1996, a federal statute set forth at 18 U.S.C. § 2441, makes it a federal crime for any U.S. national, whether military or civilian, to violate the Geneva Convention by engaging in murder, torture, or inhuman treatment. The statute applies not only to those who carry out the acts, but also to those who ORDER IT, know about it, or fail to take steps to stop it. The statute applies to everyone, no matter how high and mighty. 18 U.S.C. § 2441 has no statute of limitations, which means that a war crimes complaint can be filed at any time.
The Book of Revelation is a Greek Mythological document complete with reference to the white sky horse which is Pegasus. The advent of Hubble showing pictures of strange cosmic sights that have Biblical connections including Eta Carina draws one closer to this Greek Myth called Revelation in an effort to find the direction to that is about to enter our lives. The stage is set with the great religions drawing swords against each other especially in the seat of the Old Testament location namely Iraq. Of course one has to be wary of reaching conclusions on symbolic writings because in so many instances the words can be reasonably attached to almost any period of time. But there are things contained that one can take to ones self at any time. Let me show you. Last week we spent some time looking at the four horses of the apocalypse from the book of revelation. The opening of the first seal allows us to see the first of the four horses. When that first seal is opened inside of you there comes forth what we know as the Four Horses of the Apocalypse. This is the electrical regeneration of our physical nature.

Political obscenity in ex-Cardinal Castillo's disgraceful "democratic" background - In April 2002 Castillo, the holy man, plotted with the CIA, the contemptible, to massacre dozens of peaceful protesters to provide a pretext to overthrow democracy in Venezuela and to impose a dictatorship under the bourgeois Pedro Carmona
The University of California at Berkley has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. This new element has been tentatively named "Administratium". Administratium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 111 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

The democracy of fifth century Athens and all its shining achievements ended with Athenian defeat in the Peloponnesian War. At the start of the war Pericles warned his fellow citizens not to try to expand their empire, but a defeat in the expansionist Sicilian Expedition destroyed the Athenian navy and led eventually to the end of the democracy. Empire seems to be a hard temptation for democracies to resist. American history is a history of aggressive expansion and empire building. Now empire building has led to the end of our own democracy.
When one gets consumed in the theories of religious people we almost get to the point of having to acknowledge that storms are not a very natural part of nature but attacks against evil people organized by some invisible God who is aligned with Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell or the Ayatollah.
The American Experiment, Really?
What do we stand for?
Greed, materialism under the cloak of faux spirituality, global domination through violent coercion, militarism at home and abroad, abject inequality, the sacredness of private property, neo-liberal zealotry, religious bigotry, obscene consumerism, instant gratification, environmental mayhem, dismal racism, and the sempiternal money, money, money, money, money, money, money. In a nutshell, this is what America stands for at this stage of human history -- the myriad concerned citizens and do-gooders notwithstanding.
"It is interesting, that termites don't build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into (our) institutions (today) are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have.... The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation."--Pat Robertson, New York Magazine

Societies need secrecy and stealth in order to oppress and cheat. They must slink along like vipers at midnight and carry off and feed on the most unprotected and defenseless. The armies of the world are robotic and insane, mostly, and increasingly seem to embody a very tangible form of the death wish. Hurricane Katrina, Abu Ghraib, Camp Gitmo, plans for mini-nukes and Creationism in schools -- this is not a happy society.
President George W. Bush is the worst president in my long lifetime, and probably the worst in American history. A list of his sins of commission and omission would fill an encyclopedia -- mass murder in the shape of an immoral war, an embrace of torture, delusions of empire, financial meltdown, massive corruption, misfeasance and malfeasance, the attempted trashing of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, environmental destruction, and lies, lies, lies.
Let me tell you something that takes the question from the 1900’s of life beyond here, and brings it into the realm of science today. There is a phenomena which is fact called quantum entanglement. You cannot explain life after death without understanding things such as quantum entanglement . There is no way to discuss it other then looking at proven realities. Quantum entanglement is this : It's possible to prepare two particles – P and Q, say – in such a way that they're intimately related, like quantum twins. Let's separate P and Q, and send them as far apart as we like. They're still both in the indeterminate state. Now let's measure P, and say we discover it's in state 0. Instantaneously, this means that particle Q, which may be light-years away on the other side of the universe, instantly assumes the opposite state – it's now definitely spinning as a 1. Entanglement has been known theoretically for decades, but it's only recently been proven by experiment.
The problem that we have encountered in religion is that the physical body is restricted from pleasure which is the very purpose the physical body exists. Pleasure whether it be sexual, whether it be food, entertainment, or love, is the purpose the body exists. Unfortunately the world has fallen for the depraved teachings of religion which has resulted in the body experiencing hate and fear which has then resulted not in pleasure but in pain, sickness and death. So the electrical person does not need a body to see and hear things that it has seen and heard when it had a body. Those things are stored. Thus people who have died and no longer have a body still have the ability to see and hear the things stored within their data base which is you and me. When they bring forth you and me in the non physical state, and when we enter the non physical state in what we call dreams we may encounter one another and often do. - Bill Donahue - hiddenmeanings.com
Human beings are two parts. The physical part that was created by our mothers and fathers, and the inner light part which entered into our bodies as they were still inside the womb. It is the light which is the God part that animates the body. Consider our bodies as the bulb and the inner energy as the light within the bulb. Then ask yourself. When you throw away a burned out bulb, do you throw the light away with it.? Of course not. And is it not true, that when you connect a new bulb the same light returns ?

If there are no conflicts, let's invent them. If there is no pretext for intervention, let's create imaginary ones. When challenged, let's seek exculpation by vehement denial or preposterous excuses. To add legitimacy to subterfuge, let's unfurl a lofty banner -- democracy and human rights -- not in their original context but as expedient slogans in the pursuit of hegemonic interests. Anything to keep the war engine running and stockholders smiling.
Iranian justice minister chided the United States on Wednesday for its role in putting Saddam Hussein on trial, claiming that Washington wanted to forget that it sold weapons to the former Iraqi leader during his eight-year war with Tehran.

The nurses were sentenced to death by a firing squad, sparking cries of foul from Bulgaria and its allies the United States and the European Union. The medics' confessions, which were extracted with torture, is the only evidence proving their guilt. (Funny how TORTURE confessions are invalid when NOT performed by the US Terrorist Coalition)
All the world knows than the government of the United States of America has planned ... among other things ... to penetration of these lands under the guise of religious missions in almost the same way they did to take possession of the ancient kingdom of Hawaii.
Last night's BBC Newsnight programme reported the deaths of 70 "Iraqi militants" in US air raids on the western Iraqi city of Ramadi. The item lasted just nine seconds. This included three seconds of scepticism from an Iraqi doctor who reported that in fact civilians were amongst the dead. Viewers' attention was then rapidly diverted elsewhere; a familiar pattern of mainstream news coverage.

The incompetence of the U.S. government’s policy in Iraq was demonstrated by this weekend’s referendum on the Iraqi Constitution. The Constitution, written by the Shi’a and Kurds, has passed, over the objections of many Sunnis. Yet it symbolizes one of the U.S. government’s biggest errors in Iraq: confusing democracy with liberty.

STEM CELL RESEARCH: The headlines have made it around the world. South Korean scientists have extracted stem cells from cloned embryos. The next step will be in using these stem cells to cure things such as diabetes, Alzheimer's, spinal paralysis and obviously much more. In the United States the current administration has put a heavy obstructive hand upon science and taken us back to the dark ages. Here we see what South Korean scientists have done, and we realize that American scientists have not done this because of this government. Can you imagine how much closer we would be to a cure for Alzheimer's and diabetes and the rest if our scientists had been left alone to pursue the healing process. In this country the religious radicals who were the cause of the middle ages becoming the dark ages, have caused the government to obstruct stem cell research claiming that the human embryo is a baby. A human being. That is like saying that a wheel is a car, or a wing is a plane, or a transistor is a television set. A wheel only becomes a car when all the parts are assembled, a wing becomes a plane when all the parts are assembled, and a transistor becomes a television set when all the parts are assembled. In the same way, an embryo becomes a human being only when all the parts are assembled. And so because of the dark ages religious mentality that has run amuck in this country we have to turn our healing hopes away from the great scientists of the United States. Those who suffer the terrible diseases listed above will have to turn attention and their healing hopes to the scientists of South Korea. This kind of religious interference in the realm of scientific healing is a most graphic example of the dark ages, born again. - Bill Donahue hiddenmeanings.com

Something Wicked This Way Comes... For the unaware, those who rely on mainstream/corporate media for their “news”, Plamegate is a two year investigation into the leaking of a covert CIA operative’s identity to the press. The prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, has been doggedly trying to unravel so much corruption that all the talking heads can do is wonder who is going to be indicted. The fact remains though that the indictments have to be coming within the next two weeks. The term for the special prosecutor expires at the end of this month and we can be sure that Bush will not renew this investigation.

What cruel despot decrees that his subjects will speak words not their own, that they will blindly obey the injunctions of his self-anointed envoys, tremble at their admonitions, mouth off supplications and jeremiads and recite words of indebtedness and veneration, all repeated ad nauseam, day after day, to a God who never shows his face, never bares his heart, never sheds a tear, never says he's sorry, a God who grants life and, with it, the fear of death? But God upon whom we turn for comfort, whose indulgence we seek for our offenses and whose wrath we invoke against our enemies, turns a stone visage to human misery and a deaf ear to our most heart-rending cries.

You have spent your life listening to people tell you that you have to be saved and that you have to make sure of your salvation so that you can spend eternity in heaven. It is absolutely impossible for you to be saved. The reason that you cannot be saved is because you are totally a creation of the earth. There is no God or universe that had anything to do with who and what you are.
You were solely created by a union of your mother and father. Only their exact chromosomes could interact to make you. If they changed their mind at the last minute and decided to marry someone else you would never have been born. There are people who live on this earth and they thank God for giving them life. God did not give them life. They have life because someone forgot to wear a condom. Someone forgot to add correctly and missed the time of ovulation. It was a mistake. There are people who are alive today because they were created by a rape. Violence against a person led to a creation of another and they thank God for giving them life. Human bodies are created by other human bodies. They are engineered and structured as to what they will be by chromosomes, genetics. The color of the skin, the color of the eyes, the shape of the nose. The diseases they will probably get are all engineered inside of them before they ever see the light of day.
Hey, I thought this is what you wanted! The Apocalypse, the final chapter, the moment when all you righteous ones are vacuumed into Heaven to hang out for eternity with Oral Roberts and Pat Robertson while the rest of us are left to broil in our own terrible sin-filled juices!

TONY Blair Becoming the British Dictator yesterday threatened to impose "summary justice" on people accused of offences including terrorism, organised crime and neighbourhood yobbery. Claiming that the criminal justice system was "passing through a watershed," the Prime Minister suggested a radical and far-reaching shift in legal practice, hinting that many traditional legal protections could be swept away.
President Bush has announced his feelings that "Intelligent Design" should be taught in public schools. This is to appease his religious followers. Unfortunately they all have made a serious error. Intelligent Design is already being taught in all public schools. It is called evolution. God chose evolution as his creative technique so that each species would be able to adapt over long periods of time to natural changes. Evolution is a very intelligent design.
'I have spent my whole life on borders drawn after WWI… All the countries created then are artificial. They don’t work. We are very happy to help. We send them weapons… there is a constant stream of pain, injustice and slaughter.'
The situation as it occurs when religious people molest children, is that the children say nothing, because they are warned that what they are doing is for God, and as long as they say nothing they will be rewarded. Of course when the children become adult they are more prone not to believe that, yet it is still hard because the priest is so highly revered, and the family is deeply entrenched in the tradition of the church. But did something cosmically happen that caused this to break wide open and expose the institution and its leaders, and bring such shame upon them?
Unfortunately, religious extremists like Pat Robertson and the terrorists comprising the Bush regime have juxtaposed Christianity as the "good" against the "evil" Islamic faith. They have used this false dichotomy to whip uneducated and uninformed Americans (like Bush?) into a furor against the Arab world
Pat Robertson's Connection to Jack Abramoff! Abramoff's campaign manager was a radical rightwinger named Grover Norquist, and the two of them recruited a zealous younger activist to carry out their orders, Ralph Reed. Reed required College Republicans to recite a speech from the movie Patton, replacing the word "Nazis" with "Democrats": "The Democrats are the enemy. Wade into them. Spill their blood! Shoot them in the belly!" Norquist was the first to point out the political potential of evangelical churches to Reed, imagining that they could be turned into Republican clubhouses. During the week of the first President Bush's inauguration, Reed encountered Pat Robertson, the rightwing televangelist, who recruited him on the spot to run the Christian Coalition. "I want to be invisible," Reed explained. "I do guerrilla warfare. I paint my face and travel at night. You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag. You don't know until election night."
Jay Sekulow, counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, said last week in an interview with Pat Robertson that the Miers nomination represented "a big opportunity for those of us who . . . share an evangelical faith in Christianity to see someone with our positions put on the court."

Well its happened folks. Scientists in Japan have successfully combined two female unfertilized eggs which resulted in the birth of a mouse with no male genetic involvement at all. The mouse was generated from two unfertilized eggs and its birth has demonstrated for the first time that it is possible for mammals to be born by the "virgin birth" phenomenon of parthenogenesis. So for those who wish to take the Bible literally, all of a sudden the idea of virgin birth is no big deal since it has now been accomplished by a mouse. Unless maybe the Holy Spirit is a mouse and the way things are going, one never knows. Imagine that, a virgin mouse. Not only do we have the Virgin Mary but now we also have the Virgin Minnie. Stay tuned. Think what this will do for lesbians. I told you , Uranus turns everything upside down. Now do you believe ? Bill Donahue - HiddenMeanings.com
Muna never knew she was Palestinian. Living with her family in the Arab town of Shfaram in northern Israel, she grew up unaware of her Arab heritage.

With nothing much better to do and an unlimited budget to burn, the FBI is turning its mighty inquisitorial arsenal on environmental groups across the country.

Some 60 years ago Arnold Toynbee concluded, in his monumental "Study of History," that the ultimate cause of imperial collapse was "suicidal statecraft." Sadly for George W. Bush's place in history and - much more important - ominously for America's future, that adroit phrase increasingly seems applicable to the policies pursued by the United States since the cataclysm of 9/11
When Justices Should Legislate : President Bush loves magic words and invokes them with the alacrity of a tribal chief eager to keep the local volcano from acting up. Traditional values. Compassionate conservatism. War on terror. They spring from his lips, usually with no more harm than the whistle of an annoying co-worker in the next cubicle.
The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills.
Among the sayings and discourses imputed to him [Jesus] by his biographers, I find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the most lovely benevolence; and others again of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism, and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same being.
We have churches in the USA on every street corner. They march against abortion and against gay rights which is their right. But they also march with the American flag and sing patriotic songs when this country decides to drop bombs on peoples homes. They scream about ending abortion but they are very silent when it comes to demanding that their government end poverty. They want a Supreme Court justice that will end abortion but they are not interested in one that will end poverty. And yet it was the Lord Jesus Christ who they profess to follow who said. Matthew 19:21. Jesus said unto him, If you want to be perfect, go and sell what you have , and give to the poor, and then you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. Mark 10:17 There came one running, and asked him, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? Then Jesus said to him, You lack one thing: Sell whatever you have, and give to the poor, and come, and follow me.
When have you ever heard a born again Christian talking about salvation and connecting it with taking care of the poor. They claim they inherit eternal life by saying a prayer and believing a teaching. But they never say that it is necessary to end poverty. Bill Donahue - hiddenmeanings.com
They march against Gays
but they never march against poverty.
Like a cat that tortures a lizard it found in the yard, first plucking its tail, then tearing off a leg before finally boring with it, seems to be U.S. President George W. Bush's attitude toward Syrian President Bashar Assad.
In a dramatic rebuff to President George Bush, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the man who dared to tell the Americans that the main plank of the US argument for waging war on Iraq was based on a lie.
President George W. Bush withdrew the nomination of Timothy Flanigan as U.S. deputy attorney general a day after the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a new hearing to investigate the Tyco International Ltd. lawyer's ties to lobbyist Jack Abramoff. (Bush having trouble finding a RepubliCON clean enough to appoint to anything, other than federal prison?)
Republicans came to power pledging--in their own words--to drain the swamp of special interests in Washington and restore integrity to the White House and the Congress. Instead, President Bush's second term is mired in potential scandal and demonstrable incompetence. The reputation of the president as a strong, effective leader has eroded, leaving him susceptible to the second-term collapse that has been the fate of so many presidents. Indeed, at this point, Bush's second term could hardly look worse.
"Being sucked up into Bush's reality is like stepping out of the shower, soap in your eyes and, as you fumble for a towel, the phone jangles. Someone rings the front doorbell while simultaneously beating on the door -- someone else is pounding on the back door, shouting incoherently. It is the witching hour and you are home alone. The dog is barking wildly, the cat is yowling while scratching frantically on the screen. In a panic, you race to the window, and fall back in shock. The entire landscape is exploding in a massive fireworks display. You can see shadowy figures moving furtively across your lawn, and you wonder briefly what they are doing, but they disappear into the flashing lights and noise."
Syria wants to close its Iraqi border to Islamic militants, but American troops are doing nothing on the other side to stop the flow of fighters, President Bashar Assad was quoted as saying on Friday. "They (Americans) have no patrols at the border, not a single American or Iraqi on their side of the border," Assad told the pan-Arab newspaper Al Hayat. "We cannot control the border from one side."
PRESIDENT George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair acted much like Nazi war criminals in ordering the invasion of Iraq, the United Nations' former chief weapons inspector to the country said overnight.
Forty-six states plus the District of Columbia -- covering 96 percent of the area and 99 percent of the population of the continental United States -- are eligible to receive Hurricane Katrina-related emergency or disaster funds from the federal government.
We call upon the international society to demand that these families are given the chance to leave before the city is devastated. People who stay behind are not necessarily fighters. They simply could not move.
Green activists voiced outrage after the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, saying the IAEA had helped military nuclear proliferation by encouraging civilian nuclear power.
From 210AD to 276 AD a person born in Iran existed by the name of Mani. He founded one of the major ancient religions called Manichaeism. The most striking principle of Manichee theology is its dualism.. The universe is considered a battlefield for control between an evil material god, and a good spiritual god. Christians recognized the evil god in Satan but could not accept the idea that Satan had as much power as God. Christians held that Satan, unlike God, is a created being. The term Manichaeistic is often used to describe any religion with a similar concept of struggle between good and evil. The Manichees made every effort to include all known religious traditions in their faith. As a result, they preserved many apocryphal Christian works, such as the Acts Of Thomas, that otherwise would have been lost. Mani was eager to describe himself as a "disciple of Jesus Christ", but the orthodox church rejected him as a heretic.
The ranking Democrats on three House committees called Thursday for an outside investigator to determine why a prosecutor in Guam was demoted in 2002 after opening a criminal investigation of Jack Abramoff, the Washington lobbyist now at the center of a federal corruption investigation.
"We believe that the insurgents will try to make a surge in their attacks inside Baghdad because of its value in trying to convince the people that this government cannot protect them and also in terms of trying to make the results of the election illegitimate"
DISEASE FROM AN ABUSED NATURE
The people of the earth have abused nature terribly.
Animal cruelty including extreme cruelty in the slaughter process for food is rampant. Well now it is time for an accounting.
We hear of mad cow disease from cattle, sars from cats, bird flu from fowl. The planet is on the verge of experiencing a plague that is the direct responsibility of those who have demonstrated abuse towards nature and cruelty to animals, including those we consume.
If the greed which controls our actions continues to manifest itself in violence and cruelty towards nature and animals , then the warning nature has given to all of us will be followed by a horror that no one will be able to stop.
That horror is not Armageddon. That horror is disease. Disease brought down upon all of us by the cruelty we place on the very animals we depend on for our survival.
It has begun. Now will be learn from it and change our ways ?
It all started back in ancient Egypt in the cult of Osiris. Osiris body was cut into 14 parts which greatly disturbed his wife Isis. Isis searched and managed to find 13 parts. The one part she could not find was Osiris’ penis. At that time phallic worship (the male sexual organ) was very big and so Isis had a monument made of Osiris’ penis and order that copies be made and placed on all of the temples in the area. Today in our churches, the altar is the head of the body and the part where the congregation sits is called the “nave”. That part of the physical anatomy is the 'navel'. And of course to complete the church anatomy we have placed right where Isis directed, a tribute to the erect penis of Osiris. The steeple. From this point on when you look at a church steeple it will never be the same.
All the Iraqis are terrorists until the occupation authorities prove otherwise!! Every Iraqi mother could not sleep the night; she stays worrying until the morning; fearing of the after midnight unwelcomed visitors. There are continuous raids, especially at nights, every where in Iraq. American forces and Iraqi National Guards have the right to enter any house without asking permission. We are being ruling by the American Terrorism Act.
Yep, the breaking news as of 6pm est is that DeLay's been indicted on a second count of money laundering. And the worst part of it for the increasingly lonely camp of DeLay supporters is that it comes from a totally different Grand Jury...
To Whom It May Concern:
"Israel is the largest recipient of U.S financial aid in the world, receiving a staggering $14 million per day for the last 25 years," Zeese noted. Yet while it has given Israel more aid than it has to the entire continent of Africa, the U.S. does not control the relationship. In fact, the reverse is true, Zeese claimed, with Israeli leaders often in the driver's seat.
In a report chronicling the killing of an estimated 15,000 men, women and children by insurgents, the organisation insists that international law applies equally to US-led forces as well as those claiming to resist foreign occupation. “The armed conflict in Iraq is regulated by the 1949 Geneva Conventions and customary international laws,” says the report, Iraq: Insurgent Groups Responsible for War Crimes.
The FBI's counterterrorism unit has launched a broad investigation of US-based theft rings after discovering that some of the vehicles used in deadly car bombings in Iraq, including attacks that killed US troops and Iraqi civilians, were probably stolen in the United States, according to senior government officials.
For the one-zillionth time, of the 15 cases Ronnie Earle has brought against politicians over the years, 12 were against Democrats. Earle was so aggressive in going after corrupt Democrats, the Republicans never even put up a candidate against him all during the '80s.
For some time, now, Messrs. Bush and Blair and their coterie of sycophantic neophytes, have burbled on about the "new democracy" in Iraq having been successfully established - a laughable proposition were it not such a deadly one.
Exchanging the Kingdom of God for American mationalism: 'Robertson's call to implement this vision by assassinating a foreign head of state should not invalidate the metaphor any more than repeated fatwahs by Muslim fanatics calling for jihad against western civilization should invalidate the positive principles of Islam."
Man Group, the world's biggest listed hedge fund company, is facing a contempt of court action in the US over allegations that it helped to hide $175m (£100m) in losses at a fund run by Philadelphia Alternative Asset Management.
Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) ruled that the Bush Department of Education illegally used taxpayer dollars to fund a covert propaganda campaign, aimed at boosting the image of the President's education agenda.
This violated the publicity or propaganda prohibition for fiscal year 2004 because it amounted to covert propaganda. As a result of this violation, the Department also violated the Antideficiency Act, 31 U.S.C. § 1341.
Our case law, including the two recent opinions enclosed, has consistently held that materials produced by or at the direction of the government that fail to identify the government as the source of the materials constitute covert propaganda.
The White House on Friday threatened to veto a $440.2 billion defense spending bill in the Senate because it wasn't enough money for the Pentagon and also warned lawmakers not to add any amendments to regulate the treatment of detainees or set up a commission to probe abuse.
Top-secret Cruise missile information ended up in a second-hand shop after a Royal Navy rating sold Ministry of Defence computers to fund his gambling habit, a court martial was told
When Hurricane Katrina approached the richest country on Earth, the president of that country was on a horse checking the fences of his hacienda to make sure the anti- war protestors nearby wouldn´t get close enough to be heard.
The Nicaraguan National Assembly withdrew immunity from four top officials of President Enrique Bolaños' government and gave documentation to Managua Criminal Court Judge David Rojas, to try them for alleged election fraud.
Any reasoning species which is not completely out of its mind, instead of trying very hard to destroy itself, by militarizing the planet and the solar system, by stockpiling tons of deadly WMDs, by now would be shivering in its boots a billion-fold, would declare the planet in emergency, in alert on the degree: bloody red.
You may not meet them among your circle of friends, but there are millions of Americans who fiercely believe we should nuke North Korea and Iran, seize the Middle East’s oil, and replace the U.S. Constitution with the Christian Bible.
Before the time of the Crusades, Fatima Portugal was a holy place of pilgrimage for Muslims. The Muslims were driven from Portugal by the Crusades. The Muslim pilgrims would come to Fatima to honor the daughter of Muhammed whose name was Fatima. When the Muslims were driven from Portugal the Catholic Church continued the pilgrim march to Fatima and changed the lady’s name from Fatima to Mary. So now you know the true identity of 'Our Lady Of Fatima'. ~ Bill Donahue HiddenMeanings.com
The U.S., a "fuel guzzling country" which consumes 25 percent of the world's oil (with 6 percent of the world's population), has seen a sharp rise in demand in the past two years.
It is always amazing to me how we justify our evil by talking about the other persons evil. They cut off someone’s head and we stand in horror. We fire a missile and blow off 15 heads at one time and so what. We sing God Bless America. Cutting off a head, or blowing off heads is equally evil. You cannot justify your side's evil simply because you do it high tech and don't actually get blood on your hands. For every head they have cut off, our side has obviously cut off hundreds via our "sophisticated weaponry". It's really sick how we fail to see our evil as we look glaringly at theirs. ~ Bill Donahue HiddenMeanings.com
New reports detailing United States troops’ serial abuse of Iraqi detainees, three soldiers allege that many of the cruel punishments were ordered and approved by superiors and at least partly inspired by the comments of high-ranking administration officials who suggested some detainees had no rights.
Most of Christianity has a problem with people who are Gay. Most of those same Christians are generally found with a Bible in their hand. The most widely read Bible in the world is the King James Bible This Bible was produced by King James 1. He selected those who would transcribe it and do the actual work in its composition. The second fact about Christians and their approach to the Bible is their belief that the Bible is the word of God and those who wrote it were inspired by God. It would seem reasonable then, that if God inspired the people who wrote the Bible , he would have also inspired the person that produced it, which in this case was King James 1. King James 1 was gay. His lover of 14 years was a Frenchman by the name of Esme Stuart. So the next time you pick up a copy of the King James Bible, give some thought to the fact that it is a work of Gay Pride, divinely inspired by God.
