Peaceful onlookers were arrested by police for reading the Constitution while a pro-war group was allowed full freedom of speech in Washington DC recently in another flagrant example of how American cops are now the enforcers of a tyrannical police state.

Police are required to swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution but this didn't stop them from kidnapping members of the Code Pink group, who gathered on a nearby sidewalk to calmly express their disagreement with a Neo-Con pro-war event taking place nearby by reading the bill of rights.

The pro-occupation group "Vets for Freedom" held a rally at Upper Senate Park, Washington DC, on Saturday September 22nd. Their guest speakers included Neo-Con criminals John McCain, Johny Isakson and Joe Lieberman.

America's Tomorrow

Burden on Those Yet to Come

Throughout human history certain patterns continue repeating themselves over and over again, becoming, if careful attention is paid to study them, a direct harbinger to what tomorrow’s cultures and societies will be like. The inevitability of what a future generation’s destiny will become is oftentimes discernable from the accumulated sins of the fathers that came before as well as those of the grandfathers that no longer exist, over years accruing and building upon each other until the future becomes the unstoppable rollercoaster birthed from the damage that was done in the past.

Pentagon Tells Hillary Clinton to Shut Up about Iraq

The Pentagon today told Hillary Clinton that she was boosting enemy propaganda by discussing withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

I don't like Hillary Clinton at all, but this may -- like other recent news -- start to wake the left up to the fact that the Neocons are playing for broke and -- as 9/11 truths know -- have ALWAYS been playing for broke.

The Ghost in the Machine

Here is a wonderful article to send to family members and friends still under the delusion that the Bush administration is somehow interested in “freedom” and “democracy”.

Most articles on Strauss are either too short, too long or too cerebral for the average reader. This piece strikes a nice balance and states in plain language exactly what Strauss – and by extension, the neocons – are all about:

Bush seems to enjoy unwavering support by approximately one-quarter of the American population. This bloc is apparently comprised of confused Christian fundamentalists who believe Bush is a man of God, if not the son of God himself;) Yet the philosopher from whose beliefs the neocon agenda derives was anything but religious: he regarded religion in precisely the same manner as Marx. Well almost: “Marx called religion the opium of the people, Strauss thought the people needed their opium.”

Unmasking of the Authoritarians

Phoenix Rising

Can you smell the putrid fumes of authoritarianism rising like smoke from burning trash, filling our senses with the toxins of despotism? Do you see these clouds of tyranny surpassing the morning horizon, their darkened haze making blind our eyes, deaf our ears and ignorant our minds? Can you hear the America of yesterday screaming in agonizing pain as the cancer of the authoritarian personality slowly devours her from within? If so, you are not alone, for evolving within our shores since 9/11 lies a most ominous and frightening reality, namely, the rise and acceptance of American-style authoritarianism.

Rumsfeld 5 Hours After 9/11, "My Interest Is To Hit Saddam Hussein"

You may remember DoD staffer, Stephen Cambone, during a meeting with Rumsfeld on 9/11 jotted down "best info fast...judge whether good enough [to] hit S.H. [Saddam Hussein] at same time - not only UBL [Usama Bin Laden]." What we weren't told about at the time was that he also jotted down, "Hard to get a good case." To me, Rummy acted like a child with a $1,000,000 gift certificate to Toys R' Us. "I want that one, and that one, and that one." Certainly not someone concerned about the well-being of Americans affected by that tragic day. More like someone waiting for the opportunity. - Jon

PROVIDENCE - Just hours after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Bush administration officials began talking of including Iraq in any retaliatory attack, even though all indications pointed at al-Qaida as the guilty party.

Fascist America, In 10 Easy Steps

There are some things common to every state that's made the transition to fascism. Author Naomi Wolf argues that all of them are present in America today

Editor's note: This is adapted from Wolf's forthcoming book "The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot."

Last autumn, there was a military coup in Thailand. The leaders of the coup took a number of steps, rather systematically, as if they had a shopping list. In a sense, they did. Within a matter of days, democracy had been closed down -- the coup leaders declared martial law, sent armed soldiers into residential areas, took over radio and TV stations, issued restrictions on the press, tightened some limits on travel and took certain activists into custody.

Remembering The "Lessons Of September The 11th"

Yesterday, Bush tried again to teach us about the "lessons of September the 11th" in order to justify the Iraq Spending Bill. He said, "One of the lessons of September the 11th is what happens overseas matters to the security of the United States of America, and we must not forget that lesson. The consequences of failure would be death and destruction in the Middle East and here in America." The following piece is something I wrote a while back that talks about the real "lessons of September the 11th." - Jon

Remembering The "Lessons Of September The 11th"

Jon Gold
6/21/2006

President Bush seems to think that we have a poor memory. He seems to think that we're just not that bright.

We've got news for you President Bush. The "Lessons Of September The 11th" will be something we will NEVER forget.

Since 9/11, we have learned about things like what an "Anthrax Attack" is.

The Execution Of 9/11 Shows The Criminal Tendencies Of A Nazi Clique

In this article, you will see mention of how the Bush Administration & others have, "exploited the terrible tragedies of September 11 in much the same way the Nazis exploited the Reichstag fire."

Just today, during a speech Bush was giving about the Iraq War Supplemental, he exploited the 9/11 attacks:

"In other words, we don't have the luxury of hoping for the best, of sitting back and being passive in the face of this threat. In the past we would say oceans would protect us, and therefore what happened overseas may not matter here at home. That's what changed on September the 11th. What happens overseas affects the security of the United States. And it's in this nation's interest that we go on the offense and stay on the offense. We want to defeat them there, so we don't have to face them here.

Lawmakers say 9/11 Civil Liberties panel has no power

Another good story from Raw Story. Its not directly related to what happened on 9/11, but it is certainly intertwined, as false flag attacks are carried out partly as an excuse to clamp down on civil liberties.

"Lawmakers from both parties are complaining about the powerlessness of the country's Civil Liberties Board, which was created in the wake of 9/11 upon the recommendation of the September 11 Commission, Congressional Quarterly is reporting.

The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board has been receiving information months after it has appeared in mainstream media outlets, including the New York Times.

Democrats and Republicans have complained about the Bush administration's management of the Board and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) has introduced a bill to compel Bush to implement the 9/11 Commissions recommendations. The bill has received bipartisan support.

Excerpts from the Congressional Quarterly restricted access article follow:
#

A board set up to protect against civil liberties violations resulting from government anti-terrorism programs does not have enough power to do its job, Democratic and Republican lawmakers charged Wednesday.

UPDATE: Elementary Student Threatened With Psychiatric Evaluation After Visiting 9/11 Websites

http://www.jonesreport.com/articles/091106_disciplined_911.html

The fifth grade student who was recently disciplined for accessing 9/11 websites at school, such as Infowars.com, may now be forced to undergo psychiatric evaluation.

10 year-old Mark was not punished, the discipline report shows, for breaking school rules or being "off task," but rather because his principal says the webpages in his cache were "inappropriate."

Sites listed in the report include '9/11 Cover-Up', 'Alex Jones' Martial Law' and 'NY 9/11 Truth', among others.

First Warnings

16/10/06 www.mountainsentinel.com In October of 2001, a little over a month after 9/11, I wrote an article titled The Background is Oil. The hypothesis laid out in this article was that the 2000 US presidential election resulted in a coup of neocons and oil interests who had taken control of the US in order to prepare for the coming peak and decline of world oil production. Furthermore, this coup engineered the 9/11 terrorist attacks to further their own interests.

Before 9/11, the coup was hampered by lack of support from both the public and Congress. The tragedies of September 11th washed all resistance away in a flood of rabid patriotism. As a result, the coup was able to hijack the US political process. Over the coming years, starting with the patriot act, the coup has been able to strip us of our constitutional rights, in preparation for the civil unrest which will come from the peak and decline of oil production and the resulting economic collapse.
