Rep. Ron Paul’s Important Speech: The End of Dollar Hegemony

A hundred years ago it was called “dollar diplomacy.” After World War II, and especially after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, that policy evolved into “dollar hegemony.” But after all these many years of great success, our dollar dominance is coming to an end.

It has been said, rightly, that he who holds the gold makes the rules. In earlier times it was readily accepted that fair and honest trade required an exchange for something of real value.…

Green Party Calls For Bush Impeachment

GREEN PARTY OF THE UNITED STATES

Tuesday, January 3, 2006

Contacts:

Scott McLarty, Media Coordinator, 202-518-5624, mclarty@greens.org

Starlene Rankin, Media Coordinator, 916-995-3805, starlene@greens.org

Congress must impeach Bush and Cheney, say Greens, citing White House lawlessness, growing threat to U.S. democracy, and war crimes.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Citing a litany of alleged high crimes and misdemeanors, abuses of power, and violations of the U.S. Constitution, Green Party leaders urged Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against President George W.…

Possible Motives Of The Bush Administration – By Dr. David Ray Griffin

Possible Motives Of The Bush Administration – By Dr. David Ray Griffin

The 9/11 Commission understood that its mandate, as we have seen, was to provide “the fullest possible account” of the “facts and circumstances” surrounding 9/11. Included in those facts and circumstances are ones that, according to some critics of the official account of 9/11, provide evidence that the Bush administration intentionally allowed the attacks of 9/11. Some critics have even suggested that the Bush administration actively helped the attacks succeed.

Washington Hid Damaging Vietnam Finding

10/31/05 The US National Security Agency has kept secret a 2001 finding by its own historian that its officers deliberately distorted critical intelligence during the Tonkin Gulf episode that helped precipitate the Vietnam War.

The historian’s conclusion was the first serious accusation that the agency’s intercepts were falsified to support the belief North Vietnamese ships attacked US destroyers on August 4, 1964, two days after a previous clash.

Most historians have concluded in recent years there was no second attack, but they have assumed the agency’s intercepts were unintentionally misread, not purposely altered.…

As The Treason Unravels, A Call to Action

by Les Jamieson

Given the indictments handed down this week and continuing investigation on so many fronts, Les asks the question we must each answer for ourselves: “What is it going to take …?”

“We all must be aware that to fail to demand answers to the glaring questions and discrepancies is to accept and endorse the official explanation.”

What will YOU do this week?

After two years of the investigation into Plamegate, the latest political upheaval has hit the proverbial fan.…

Action Alert–Griffin Challenges NYTimes to Cover 9/11

Adapted from: georgewashington.blogspot.

Dear 9/11 Truth Activists,

The New York Times is under fire for letting Judith Miller work as a member of the White House Iraq Group to spread disinformation, and then covering up Miller’s role and refusing to fire her. It has become obvious to fair-minded observers that the Times has been part of the Iraq disinformation campaign.

NOW is the time to contact the Times, to urge i’s management to “step up to the plate” on 9/11 as part of its need to “repair its reputation” after the Miller scandal.…

Mission improbable: Author challenges the official story of 9/11

By Greg Guma
Vermont Guardian

 

Burlington– For more than four years, the public has repeatedly been urged to ignore “outrageous” conspiracies theories about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that set in motion the so-called “war on terrorism.” However, the official explanation that has been provided — and widely embraced — also requires the acceptance of a theory, one involving a massive intelligence failure, 19 Muslim hijackers under the sway of Osama bin Laden, and the inability of the world’s most advanced Air Force to intercept four commercial airplanes.…

What Action Looks Like: Going Viral with 9/11 Truth

Millions of people are at various levels of discovery that the official explanation of 9/11 is a lie. They are at some point in the process of realizing that some clandestine element at the highest levels of our government and military orchestrated a self-inflicted terrorist act to enflame U.S citizens into supporting an aggressive imperial agenda abroad, and a homeland security/police state regime at home as we relinquish our cherished civil liberties.

After the immediate question of Why?…

Real State of Union After Katrina

The flooding and flattening of New Orleans and its exposure of this government”s abject failure in preparedness are a shock to the collective psyche of Americans. The human cost of this breakdown in response reveals the stark reality of life for millions in the richest country in the world. News coverage on the BBC truly showed how appalling the human conditions are in New Orleans, presenting us as an embarrassment to the world. Who would have ever thought that conditions normally seen in Sudan or Calcutta would surface here?…

Impeach Bush Now

By Paul Craig Roberts

The raison d’être of the Bush administration is war in the Middle East in order to protect America from terrorism and to insure America’s oil supply. On both counts the Bush administration has failed catastrophically.

Bush’s single-minded focus on the “war against terrorism” has compounded a natural disaster and turned it into the greatest calamity in American history. The US has lost its largest and most strategic port, thousands of lives, and 80% of one of America’s most historic cities is under water.…

The Plunder Never Ends

So this is how the US government does business!

Cash from the New York Federal Reserve is loaded on to C-130s and shipped to Bagdad — to the tune of $12 billion since the start of the US occupation of Iraq in March 2003.

The money originally came from Iraqi oil sales under Saddam and was held in trust under the rules of the UN oil sales program. Now it is handed out to Iraqi and US government contractors in the form of cash.…

Neocons can Celebrate July 23rd, too: Halliburton Profits Soar

Halliburton Shares Soar10% After It Posts Second Quarter Profit

By Pam Easton, Associated Press

Friday July 22, 2005

HOUSTON (AP) — Oilfield services firm Halliburton Co.’s shares soared 10 percent Friday after it reported that an influx of new government contracts at its KBR and energy services units drove it to a second-quarter profit.

“It was a fundamentally solid quarter,” Halliburton chief executive David Lesar said during a Friday morning conference call with analysts. “There are good reasons for all of us to feel proud and good about what we have accomplished.”

In a report after the markets closed Thursday, Halliburton said it earned $392 million, or 78 cents per share, for the three months ended June 30 compared with a loss of $667 million, or $1.52 per share, last year.…

Karl Rove’s “Understanding of 9/11”

by Kristen Breitweiser

The Huffington Post
 

Editor’s Note:
For morbid fascination, you can hardly top the neocons’ relentless cynical exploitation of their 9/11 myth. Not content with their initial trifecta win — bankrupting government services, shredding the Bill of Rights and launching endless imperial wars, they are now obviously out to milk it to perpetuate one-party rule. Rove certainly does “understand 9/11” or at least the profit in its abuse.

 
Mr. Rove, the first thing that I would like to address is Afghanistan – the place that anyone with a true “understanding of 9/11” knows is a nation that actually has a connection to the 9/11 attacks.…

Bases, Bases Everywhere

Remember the Cheney/Rumsfeld/PNAC call for this militant metastasis in 2000? Or their realistic complaint that this “transformation” would take forever “absent a cataclysmic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor”? Or that Darth Cheney still holds 433,333 stock options in Halliburton, which is making more money off this imperial oil grab than any firm on earth? Map the bases, chart the profits, connect the dots. – Ed.

Hollywood Strikes Back

Rolls Out Big-Budget 9/11 Truth Movie.

by John J. Albanese

May 22, 2005

I couldn’t believe my eyes. Star Wars III — Revenge of the Sith is a 9/11
truth movie.

(For those who do not want to know the plot of this film, read no
further.)

It came as a complete surprise. My wife and I went to see this film
somewhat reluctantly, and with some misplaced sense of obligatory
nostalgia for a franchise that harkened back to our youth.…

Proof Bush Fixed The Facts

“Intelligence and facts are being fixed around the policy.”

Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would see those words in black and white—and beneath a SECRET stamp, no less.  For three years now, we in Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) have been saying that the CIA and its British counterpart, MI-6, were ordered by their countries’ leaders to “fix facts” to “justify” an unprovoked war on Iraq.? More often than not, we have been greeted with stares of incredulity.…

One of the major questions being asked is if anyone in the U.S.…
