Many blame Ashcroft, Cheney, and Bush for ongoing campaigns against activists, politicians and organizations that try to help Arabs and Muslims.
Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner, a long time Palestinian rights advocate, told supporters that he believes former US Attorney General John Ashcroft personally orchestrated a sting operation to remove him from office. As in previous cases, strategic “media update sessions” put the media into a predatory frenzy before the accused even went to trial. Media accusations often do not even coincide with the actual charges.
With Fox News tilted firmly to the right and MSNBC leaning more and more to the left, CNN is commonly regarded as the more moderate, more balanced cable news alternative.
And that generally seems to be the case, with a couple of exceptions, the most glaring of which is Lou Dobbs.
In recent years, Dobbs gained notoriety for his loud opposition to U.S. immigration policy, especially where brown-skinned people are concerned.
But now Dobbs is sinking even further into Wingnutland.

An article in today’s Washington Post (“Pakistani Pledge to Rout Taliban In Tribal Region Is Put on Hold”) reveals that Obama’s Pakistani war plans have become bogged-down in a foggy uncertainty with the certain knowledge that the Pakistanis do not play well with others. They are leagues beyond us in the art of political and military play-acting.
The diabolical genius of the Pakistani game plan can now begin to be seen.
Their military actions in Swat and NWFP have flushed of millions of people from their homes, creating this monumental internal catastrophe. By flushing these restless refugees toward the eastern border with India and southward, putting them between the Pakistani Army and the big battlefield of S. Waziristan, a buffer was created between the government and international opinion.

The karmic destiny of America has four staqes and we have already reached stage four, Bankruptcy ~ where America continues to pour its economic resources onto global military misadventures, such as Afghanistan, while draining the economic health and safety of its citizens:
Because of the Cheney/Bush administration's illegal needless war and occupation of Iraq ~ where arrogance fully embraced incompetence and where hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and maimed ~ America started on the path of its own karmic downfall and Obama has done nothing to stop its momentum with his ongoing military buildup in Afghanistan.

For over 30 years, F. William Engdahl has been a leading researcher, economist, and analyst of the New World Order with extensive writing to his credit on energy, politics, and economics. His newest book is titled "Full Strectrum Dominance: Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order."
Part I was reviewed earlier. Part II continues the story of America's quest for global dominance and why its own internal rot may defeat it.

In a word - oil in the form of huge potential reserves with Chinese companies involved in discovering them. Washington's genocide claim is a hoax. Yet it's trumpeted by the media and foolhardy celebrities used as props for the charade. By 2007, China was getting up to 30% of its oil from Africa prompting its "extraordinary series of diplomatic initiatives that left Washington furious" and determined to respond.

Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest invention is a grotesque Austrian gay celebrity who comes to America to try to boost the ratings of his fashion television program. Bruno is one of the most repugnant characters ever to appear on the big screen, something Baron Cohen probably takes pride in. Bruno is Cohen’s third gross character in succession. At times it seems as if Cohen is seeking pleasure in being repelling. After mimicking an ignoramus stereotype of a non-black suburban male who revels in Black and Jamaican culture (Ali G) and a Kazakh misogynist, racist buffoon and anti-Semite (Borat), Bruno can be grasped as another creative attempt to challenge the Western liberal discourse.

The Earth surface temperature reflects the net balance between incoming solar shortwave radiation and outgoing terrestrial long wave radiation Kiehl and Trenberth, 1997 . The severe disturbance of the energy balance of the atmosphere ensuing from the emission of over 320 billion tons of carbon since 1750 threatens a shift in the state of the atmosphere/ocean system to ice free greenhouse Earth conditions. Based on the recent Copenhagen Synthesis Report , climate change trends at the top range of IPCC 2007 projections , and the identification of tipping points in the recent history of the atmosphere/ocean system i.e. at 14 - 11 and 8.2 thousand years-ago , the scale and pace of 21st Century climate changes  require re-consideration of mitigation and adaptation strategies.

Warning: Reading the following may be hazardous to your mental health. The material herein has caused readers to experience Cognitive Dissonance (CD). CD is the discomfort felt at the discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation that contradicts a strongly held belief system – It’s that queasy feeling that rises in your gut and screams, I DON’T BELIEVE THAT! Because, if you accepted the new information, you would have to admit you been ”had,” or ”conned,” in this case into shopping for stuff to trash the planet.
The benefit of the new information is that the world around you will finally make sense. Hot, flat, and crowded Thomas L. Friedman will finally know what planet George W. Bush is on. Bush lost the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq, but is winning the war on the environment.

OKLAHOMA CITY – The lead headline in today’s edition of The Oklahoman said it all : “State kids to get shot at swine flu vaccine.”
Yes, that swine flu. The one designated last month as a pandemic by the World Health Organization.
Anyway, reading the story, written by Oklahoman staff writer Vallery Brown, readers are told that up to 200 Oklahoma children between the ages of 3 and 8 will be encouraged to enroll in the swine flu (H1N1) vaccine trials.
These tests – which in effect use children as guinea pigs for this largely untested vaccine – will be conducted at IPS Research in Oklahoma City, the first Oklahoma company to be involved in the swine flu vaccine trials.
The medical director for IPS Research, Dr. Louise Thurman, said they will begin enrolling “patients” on August 17.
“From a science standpoint, it should work,” Thurman told The Oklahoman.
Ed Haas / Muckraker Report
Osama bin Laden’s role in the events of September 11, 2001 is not mentioned on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” poster.
On June 5, 2006, author Ed Haas contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters to ask why, while claiming that bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 1998 bombings of US Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, the poster does not indicate that he is wanted in connection with the events of 9/11.
Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI responded, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11.” Tomb continued, “Bin Laden has not been formally charged in connection to 9/11.”
