Our Dangerous Times.

There's really not much a person could add which wouldn't be redundant.

Contact your Representative or Senator today - Do it for Americas sake.

Whore of Israel
"The eyes are the window to the soul"

My eyes adore you
So many others always say
Tomorrow’s before you...

Who needs a ideological prism when you have eyes like Kristol?

"Ideological movements become more dangerous when they become governing regimes of major nations." - William Kristol

I couldn't agree more Bill - which is why America must root out the Likudniks like yourself who have hijacked our media and government.

The Ideological Occupation of the American Media.

Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

This pivotal documentary exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites--oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others--work in combination with Israeli public relations strategies to exercise a powerful influence over how news from the region is reported.

Through the voices of scholars, media critics, peace activists, religious figures, and Middle East experts, Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land carefully analyzes and explains how--through the use of language, framing and context--the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza remains hidden in the news media, and Israeli colonization of the occupied terrorities appears to be a defensive move rather than an offensive one.

The documentary also explores the ways that U.S. journalists, for reasons ranging from intimidation to a lack of thorough investigation, have become complicit in carrying out Israel's PR campaign. At its core, the documentary raises questions about the ethics and role of journalism, and the relationship between media and politics.

Washington Whispers

That Times Leak Was No Surprise

Before you jump in with those heaping scorn on the New York Times for using a leak to reveal the secret Treasury program to search financial transactions for terrorist activities, know this:

The Treasury Department expected it to leak.

When the program was developed in 2003, a press plan was included. The goal: Get out front with the spin that there are safeguards to prevent snooping on private accounts, that it is legal, and that there are big benefits to it. "These three elements needed to be in the first-day story," says an insider. The plan worked. When the Times told Treasury it was running the story, top Treasury aides were OK'd to talk to the Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times, which presented the three points. "It was a textbook case of very good PR management," says the insider.

Brazen Bilbray


When the felonius Duke, California's 50th District Representative Cunningham, left office last December, we had every reason to hope for something better. Candidate Brian Bilbray even promised to cut back on pork.

He had been to Congress before, and claimed to have been on the right side in 1995.

"There's still more to do," he said in his recent campaign, giving the example of "not allowing members of congress to put in private so-called earmarks for funding."

So of couse he won the special election.

Some of us wondered: how long will it take to corrupt the man? Terms? Years? Months?
More like: one week.

Bilbray was in the House no more than a week when he voted for the latest appropriation bill, this one with over 1500 earmarks!

Fifteen hundred! Well, maybe the country just couldn't go along without that bill. But what can we say about Bilbray's voting down each of Representative Jeff Flake's FOUR anti-pork amendments? That's not one NO, not a mere two, not even three. That's FOUR NOs.

Funny thing is, before the special election, he seemed to be fighting a bit of an uphill battle. You see, he had been a lobbyist for several years. Jadedly, he said, "Everyone is trying to say that everyone in Washington is tainted."

Hmmm. I wonder why. Could it be because everyone in Washington IS tainted? Nope. But Bilbray certainly is. And he proved it!
