Is this what we want? Britons 'could be microchipped like dogs in a decade'

They could be used by companies who want to keep tabs on an employee's movements or by Governments who want a foolproof way of identifying their citizens - and storing information about them.
The United States is moving in the same direction:

[By the year 2025:] "The civilian populace will likely accept an implanted microscopic chips that allow military members to defend vital national interests."
--from Chapter 4 of "Information Operations: A New War-Fighting Capability," contained in Volume 3 of Air Force 2025: Final Report by the U.S. Department of Defense (August 1996

Washington Post: Bush accuses Democrats of lacking plan for Iraq

Wait a freaking moment--Bush has a plan for Iraq? Is he saying that everything in Iraq is going according to plan? If he has a plan, it's not working.
From conservative site Judicial Watch:

Pentagon Loses Weapons

Thousands of sophisticated weapons earmarked for Iraqi security forces are missing from the U.S. Department of Defense and government officials say it is unlikely that they will be recovered. The Pentagon cannot account for 14,030 weapons that include assault rifles, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and semiautomatic pistols that could easily be used by terrorists to attack civilians in the United States.

UFO Crash in 1941 in Missouri?

In the spring of 1941, at about 9 p.m., Baptist minister William Huffman of Cape Girardeau was asked to deliver last rights to the pilot and passengers of an aircraft that crashed about 15 miles outside of town, in the direction of Sikeston, according to a letter from Huffman’s granddaughter Charlette Mann to UFO investigator Leo Stringfield.

When Rev. Huffman arrived, police, fire officials, the military and the FBI poured over the crash site of a disc-shaped craft. The pilot and passengers were “little gray people” with large, almond-shaped black eyes, according to Mann’s letter.

First Halliburton gets the Homeland Security contract to build the camps.

The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs. The contingency support contract provides for planning and, if required, initiation of specific engineering, construction and logistics support tasks to establish, operate and maintain one or more expansion facilities.
Professor Peter Dale Scott's perspective on the Halliburton contract.

Now I read this: Bush Moves Toward Martial Law

In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed intolaw a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.
The only Senator to speak out was Patrick Leahy:

In a telling bit of understatement, the Senator from Vermont noted that "the implications of changing the (Posse Comitatus) Act are enormous". "There is good reason," he said, "for the constructive friction in existing law when it comes to martial law declarations. Using the military for law enforcement goes against one of the founding tenets of our democracy. We fail our Constitution, neglecting the rights of the States, when we make it easier for the President to declare martial law and trample on local and state sovereignty."

Senator Leahy's final ruminations: "Since hearing word a couple of weeks ago that this outcome was likely, I have wondered how Congress could have gotten to this point. It seems the changes to the Insurrection Act have survived the Conference because the Pentagon and the White House want it."

Active troops ask congress to end Iraqi occupation

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sixty five active duty service members are officially asking Congress to end the war in Iraq -- the first time active troops have done so since U.S. invasion began in 2003.

Three of the service members will hold a press conference Wednesday explaining their decision to send "Appeals for Redress" under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act to their members of Congress. Under the act, National Guard and Reservists can send communications about any subject to their member of Congress without punishment.
Support the troops. End the war.

spam poem2

(A new hobby of mine--creating "poems" from bits and pieces of spam, particularly the pseudo-content they put in to fool the spam blockers.)
"Iraq was better than expected. Overall, there is nothing really to question or be skeptical about. I think the results are very good."

Good for Halliburton that is, according to Jeff Tillery, analyst with Pickering Energy Partners Inc., and I'm sure he is right. True, Iraq is rapidly falling into civil war, and the "reconstruction" that Halliburton is supposedly doing in Iraq is a catastrophic failure, but "Halliburton's Iraq-related work contributed nearly $1.2 billion in revenue in the third quarter of 2006." What's good for Halliburton is good for America, right? Or at least for Dick Cheney, who thinks things are going "remarkably well" in Iraq.

Diplomat: US 'arrogant, stupid' in Iraq

Really? Arrogance and stupidity from the Bush administration? This really does fall in the "Sky is Blue" category.
Senator Ted Kennedy Accused of Treason

The right-wing blogosphere is abuzz with allegations regarding a memo that supposedly has been unearthed in the former Soviet archives. According to a new book, The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism , Senator John Tunney had traveled to the Soviet Union on Kennedy's behalf and offered the assist them in a PR campaign to counter Reagan's foreign policy.

As CNS News describes it:

The letter, dated May 14, 1983, was sent from the head of the KGB to Yuri Andropov, who was then General Secretary of the Soviet Union's Communist Party.

In his letter, KGB head Viktor Chebrikov offered Andropov his interpretation of Kennedy's offer. Former U.S. Sen. John Tunney (D-Calif.) had traveled to Moscow on behalf of Kennedy to seek out a partnership with Andropov and other Soviet officials, Kengor claims in his book.
So this is a KGB official's interpretation of comments by Tunney, supposedly on behalf of Kennedy.

"Kennedy was afraid that Reagan was leading the world into a nuclear war," Kengor said. "He hoped to counter Reagan's polices, and by extension hurt his re-election prospects."
Which, of course, is Kengor's interpretation of Chebrikov's interpretation of Tunney's comments, supposedly on behalf of Kennedy. And what exactly were those comments? Apparently suggestions that Andropov attempt to persuade the American people that he really wanted peace, as apparently he did. Treason, say the wingnuts.

Hot Air/has some of the memo itself:

If the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y. V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interview. Specifically, the board of directors of ABC, Elton Raul and the television columnists Walter Cronkite or Barbara Walters could visit Moscow. The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side.
Hot Air adds, "I think the next step here is to nail down the authenticity of the memo." I would think this would be the first step, before accusing a sitting US Senator of treason. I suspect the memo may be authentic, although it would be nice to see it in its entirety.The memo is interesting but what it relates falls far short, it seems to me, of being evidence of Treason, which , by the way, requires two witnesses to the same overt act of providing aid and comfort to our enemies, according to the constitution. Not so, however, according to Junk Yard Dog:

If this is true, and what it seems to be, we should start impeachment proceedings immediately. And perhaps begin testing some rope with a very high tensile strength.

Rick Moran at the not so aptly named Right Wing Nut House is a bit more cautious:

There are many reasons why this might not be true, not the least of which is that Soviet agents were notorious for lying to their superiors – especially when it came to bragging to their bosses about Americans who may or may not have worked with Communists. Contained in the million or so pages of documents that came to light in the immediate aftermath of the fall of the Soviet Union are the names of dozens of prominent Americans that Soviet agents claimed were helping the Communist cause, including FDR’s friend and closest White House advisor Harry Hopkins as well as famous entertainers like Marilyn Monroe. The long and short of it is, you need a helluva lot more than one memo to prove that Ted Kennedy wanted to take part in this scheme.
The majority of wingnuts, however, are apparently ready to hang Teddy.

Lukery at Wot is it Good 4 continues his excellent coverage of whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds, who has been silenced by use of the State Secrets Privilege, supposedly a matter of National Security. Most observers feel that what is actually being covered up is corruption on a massive scale, to the detriment of America. Daniel Ellsberg has spoken to Sibel at length and has given us a peek at what she knows, namely that Dennis Hastert has taken suitcases of Al Qaeda-linked heroin cash!

Al Qaeda, she's been saying to congress, according to these interviews, is financed 95% by drug money - drug traffic to which the US government shows a blind eye, has been ignoring, because it very heavily involves allies and assets of ours - such as Turkey, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Afghanistan - all the 'Stans - in a drug traffic where the opium originates in Afghanistan, is processed in Turkey, and delivered to Europe where it furnishes 96% of Europe's heroin, by Albanians, either in Albania or Kosovo - Albanian Muslims in Kosovo - basically the KLA, the Kosovo Liberation Army which we backed heavily in that episode at the end of the century.
Sibel says that suitcases of cash have been delivered to the Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, at his home, near Chicago, from Turkish sources, knowing that a lot of that is drug money.

Man Accused Of Engaging In Sex Act With Family Dog

Oddly enough, though, he is not a Republican candidate for Congress.
Our Fearless Leader
After 9/11 brothers Kevin and Pat Tillman joined the Army, and served together in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pat was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. Kevin Tillman has a few things to say:

Somehow ...

Somehow those afraid to fight an illegal invasion decades ago are allowed to send soldiers to die for an illegal invasion they started.

Somehow faking character, virtue and strength is tolerated.

Somehow profiting from tragedy and horror is tolerated.

Somehow the death of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people is tolerated.

Somehow subversion of the Bill of Rights and The Constitution is tolerated.

Somehow suspension of Habeas Corpus is supposed to keep this country safe.

Somehow torture is tolerated.

Somehow lying is tolerated.

Somehow reason is being discarded for faith, dogma, and nonsense.

Somehow American leadership managed to create a more dangerous world.

Read the whole thing. Please. Then vote.

“In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.”

-H. L. Mencken (from Station Charon)

Dick Cheney tells Rush Limbaugh that the situation in Iraq is going ‘Remarkably Well’

On the other hand, this government has only been in office about five months, five or six months now. They’re off to a good start. It is difficult, no question about it, but we’ve now got over 300,000 Iraqis trained and equipped as part of their security forces. They’ve had three national elections with higher turnout than we have here in the United States. If you look at the general overall situation, they’re doing remarkably well.
Rush must have been sharing the oxycotin. Optimism is one thing but Cheney is divorced from reality. Not that this is anything new:

“I think they’re in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency.”

"We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators."

Senator Larry Craig (R) Outed by BlogActive: (graphic from Wonkette)

I have done extensive research into this case, including trips to the Pacific Northwest to meet with men who have say they have physical relations with the Senator. I have also met with a man here in Washington, D.C., who says the same -- and that these incidents occurred in the bathrooms of Union Station. None of these men know each other, or knew that I was talking to others. They all reported similar personal characteristics about the Senator, which lead me to believe, beyond any doubt, that their stories are valid.
On October 4 columnist Joel Connelly noted that Senator Craig was (not) involved in the earlier page scandal that caught Congressmen Gerry Studds and Dan Crane:

In the early 1980s, the House censured Rep. Dan Crane, R-Ill., and Rep. Gerry Studds, D-Mass., for having sexual relations with teenage pages.

A third lawmaker, then-Rep. (now Sen.) Larry Craig, R-Idaho, called a press conference to deny any connection to the page scandal. Nobody had ever accused him of involvement.

Congressman Curt Weldon and the Flying Saucer

Thanks to Wonkette for drawing our attention to this story. It seems that Curt Weldon's daughter was representing a Russian company that made Flying Saucers. I'm not kidding.

From the LA Times:

Karen Weldon, an inexperienced 29-year-old lobbyist from suburban Philadelphia, seemed an unlikely choice for clients seeking global public relations services.
Despite a lack of professional credentials, she had one notable asset -- her father, U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.), who is a leading voice in Washington on former Eastern Bloc affairs.
After a Russian aerospace manufacturer hired Karen Weldon's firm for $20,000 a month plus 10% of any new business it generated, Rep. Weldon pitched the company's saucer-shaped drone to the U.S. Navy, which signed a letter of intent to invest in the technology. And Weldon, who chairs a subcommittee that oversees $60 billion in military acquisitions, has been working to get funding for the project, Navy officials say.
MosNews describes the device:

The ’saucer’ was invented in the late 1970s. The constructors joined a fuselage and wings into one thick “wing”, before trimming and rounding its edges. The saucer can lift more than half its weight, and its inner volume is 8-10 times bigger than the saloon of the plane it was made from.
A description of the Weldon's relationship with the saucer-making company in Harpers:

Another one of Karen's clients is Saratov, a Russian aviation firm which sought to sell a drone it described as a “flying saucer.” A Saratov official recalled hearing from Rep. Weldon “quite unexpectedly” in early January 2003. Weldon, said the official, expressed “an acute interest” in the flying saucer. The congressman visited Saratov's plant later that month, accompanied by his daughter, and in short order the firm retained Karen Weldon's services.

After the Weldons returned from Russia, the congressman worked hard to jumpstart a saucer deal between Saratov and the Naval Air Systems Command, or NAVAIR, which is based near Washington. John Fischer, NAVAIR's director of research and engineering sciences, later credited Congressman Weldon with bringing Saratov to NAVAIR 's attention, calling him “a very proactive member of Congress.”

I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it. - letter to the Conservative MP, Sir John Pakington. March, 1866.-- John Stuart Mill

Piglipstick posts this interesting video about the series of explosions in Baghdad. There is a really BIG explosion at about 3:55. A harrowing first-person account can be found here.

Amid widespread panic in the Republican establishment about the coming midterm elections, there are two people whose confidence about GOP prospects strikes even their closest allies as almost inexplicably upbeat: President Bush and his top political adviser, Karl Rove.

The official White House line of supreme self-assurance comes from the top down. Bush has publicly and privately banished any talk of losing the GOP majorities, in part to squelch any loss of nerve among his legions. Come January, he said last week, "We'll have a Republican speaker and a Republican leader of the Senate."

The question is whether this is a case of justified confidence -- based on Bush's and Rove's electoral record and knowledge of the money, technology and other assets at their command -- or of self-delusion. Even many Republicans suspect the latter. Three GOP strategists with close ties to the White House flatly predicted the loss of the House, though they would not do so on the record for fear of offending senior Bush aides.
The Washington Post asks if they are merely confident or delusional? Or maybe they know something we don't. Meanwhile, Karl Rove has supposedly promised an October Surprise.
WorldNetDaily: Shit Coming Down!

Yes, according to this wingnut site, another Pakistani journalist reports that something big is going to happen during the month of Ramadan, which is observed this year Sept. 24 to Oct. 23. All Muslims are warned to leave the country.

The head of the Islamabad-based al-Quds Center reported receiving an audio message from Mullah Masoom Afghani urging U.S. Muslims to get out of the country "because Allah's punishment would fall on America in the month of Ramadan."

Muslims are observing Ramadan this year Sept. 24 to Oct. 23.

Jamal Ismail is the journalist who received the message. He formerly worked for al-Jazeera. He told the News of Pakistan that he received a phone call Oct. 5 from Afghani.

"Afghani said he was speaking from somewhere in Kandahar province," reported Ismail. "In it, he advised Muslim residents of America to get out to escape harm because the U.S. could face big attacks in the month of Ramadan."
WorldNetDaily has been predicting an "American Hiroshima" during Ramadan for several years now. I am naturally skeptical of this story, and yet there are a number of reasons to agree with blogger Joseph Cannon that Something big is up.

Iraqi Shiites Make a Turnabout, Join the Resistance

This story, from Cytations, is dated September 9 so it is no longer breaking news. I suppose it falls into the category of "it's news to me." Cyte, the author of this blog knows Arabic so I will be keeping a closer eye on Cytations in the future.

But after watching the Kurds recently lower the Iraqi flag as a sign of secession, the Southern Shiite clans of Iraq have decided to bear arms and join the resistance. They also demanded the return of Saddam to power.
Cyte also links to the full statement of the Shiite tribes.

We the undersigned, the youth of the Southern Iraq tribes, declare that we have been asked by our tribes and elders to publicly join our brothers and our cousins in the tribes of the North, which were gathered in Kirkuk, and the dignified Baghdadi family representatives of all the tribes of Iraq who declared their support to the Heroic Iraqi Armed Resistance and consider it as the sole legitimate representative of the Iraqi people.

Moreover we confirm our full commitment to liberate Iraq from the US and Iranian invasion and our demand to the return of his Excellency the detained President Saddam Hussein (May the Lord safeguard him and free him from the hands of his bloodthirsty US enemies), the legitimate President of the Republic of Iraq, whom some of us opposed, but the previous years and the time of the Occupation have proved that his Excellency Saddam Hussein was the guarantee of the citizens security, the unity, stability and prosperity of the homeland and the loyal and faithful defender of the Iraqi women's honor.

BREAKING NEWS: Eisenhower Carrier Group Sails for Iran Theater

The Eisenhower strike force, according to my sources, is scheduled to arrive in the vicinity of Iran around October 21, at the same time as a second flotilla of minesweepers and other ships.

This build-up of naval power around the coast of Iran, according to some military sources, is in preparation for an air attack on Iran that would target not just Iran's nuclear enrichment facilities, but its entire military command and control system.
What is deeply troubling here is the total silence on the part of the Democratic Party opposition. Not one Democrat in Congress, and as far as I know, not one Democratic candidate for Congress--not even anti-war insurgent Ned Lamont in Connecticut, has demanded an answer from Bush and the Pentagon for the obvious military buildup around Iran, or about published reports that the U.S. already has special forces in side Iran backing the terrorist organization MEK, and selecting targets for U.S. bombardment.

As PageFuckerGate (as Wonkette calls it) unfolds we would all do well to keep in mind Buell's Law, which states: Whenever a prominent political figure is accused of sexual misconduct--HE DID IT! Seems un-American I know, but remember those three words and you will rarely go wrong.

As we wait for the next page to turn, here are some stories about Scott Palmer, Chief of Staff for Speaker Dennis Hastert:

From the Huffington Post:

Many chiefs of staff are close, very close, to their bosses on Capitol Hill. But none are closer than Scott Palmer is to Denny Hastert. They don't just work together all day, they live together.

There are plenty of odd couple Congressmen who have roomed together on Capitol Hill, but I have never heard of a chief of staff who rooms with his boss. It is beyond unusual. But it must have its advantages. Anything they forget to tell each other at the office, they have until bedtime to catch up on. And then there's breakfast for anything they forgot to tell each other before falling asleep. And then there's all day at the office. Hastert and Palmer are together more than any other co-workers in the Congress.

And from the New York Times:

Mr. Hastert, a former schoolteacher and wrestling coach, is more at home in Illinois than in Washington, traveling back to the state almost every weekend with Scott Palmer, his chief of staff, and Mike Stokke, his deputy chief of staff. When Congress is in session, the two aides and Mr. Hastert share a townhouse near the Capitol, living a bachelorlike existence.
Jeb Bush in the Closet!

Protesters greeted Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on his way to a campaign event for a Pennsylvania senator, and he briefly took refuge in a subway station supply closet to avoid the anti-Republican demonstrators.
Humor aside, the rest of the article is no so funny.

"Officers used stun guns to subdue two protesters, saying they disobeyed orders to disperse, said Bob Grove, a Port Authority spokesman.

It was a very tense situation. They were very close to the governor and shouting on top of him," Grove said.

Bush was not injured.

The protesters, made up of members of the United Steelworkers union and the anti-war group Uprise Counter Recruitment, chanted, "Jeb go home," and said Bush blew them a kiss.
Bush was not injured? What about the protestors attacked by stun gun? What about their First Amendment rights?

I was sitting yesterday with Karl Rove, Bush's top advisor, at the NCAA basketball game, discussing Israel when this email came in. I showed it to him. It seems that the President was very sad to have to come out negatively regarding Israel, but that they needed to mollify the Arabs for the upcoming war on Iraq. That did not seem to work anyway. Bush seems to love Sharon and Israel, and thinks Arabfat [sic], is nothing but a liar. I thought I'd pass that on.

Whoever Knew Must Be Through

Innocent until proven guilty blah blah blah. Now that Ive got the legal mumbo jumbo out of the way, I will say this...

Foley needs to be arrested and brought up on charges befitting a pedophile sexual predator. If found guilty, he needs to have his sack cut off and force fed to him. Just as importantly, anyone that had knowledge of these indespicable and illegal emails needs to resign and step down. I dont give a shite if this a a hotly contested election year (and we all know, thats what you were thinking).
