'Mankind is responsible for the greatest extinction of wildlife since the end of the dinosaurs, conservationists have said.
Their warning came after a report revealed that populations of animals and plants have plummeted by a third over the last 35 years as a result of hunting, overfishing, habitat destruction and the changing climate.
Humans are increasingly living beyond their means and the world is heading for an 'ecological credit crunch', according to the Living Planet Report.'

Cows ate GE maize and died - the same gene as in GE maize for humans
Twelve dairy cows died in Hesse, Germany after being fed Syngenta's Bt 176 GE maize; and other cows had to be slaughtered due to mysterious illnesses.
A chief suspect for the death of the cows is the toxic Bt protein contained in the Bt 176 Maize. Syngenta says that the same toxic protein is found in Bt 11-Maize intended for human food.
Studies conducted in Japan in 2003 clearly showed that undigested Bt toxin is present in calf stomach, intestine and dung after being fed Bt 11 maize; and these results have been replicated in further experiments in pigs. This supports the suspiscion that it was the Bt-toxin that killed the cows.
The fact that Syngenta has not withdrawn its Bt-Maize in spite of this indicates a serious lack of responsibility. It indicates that it is dangerous to let the biotech corporations make the safety assessment of their products (as is the practice today, see "Inadequate safety assessment of GE foods") and not independent institutes.
Over 50% of newborn rats died within 3 weeks when mothers were fed with GE soya
36% were severely stunted
More than half the offspring of soya fed rats died in the the first three weeks of life. This was six times as many as with normal diet. Of those who survived, six times many as those eating normal diet, had underweight.
"The morphology and biochemical structures of rats are very similar to those of humans, and this makes the results very disturbing" according to the scientists who did the research.
Virus genes from GE foods can end up among your own genes
Genes (DNA) from the cells, including the meat, of chicken who had eaten only genetically engineered Bt corn contained pieces of DNA from this food. This DNA contains virus genes that are suspected to be cancerogenic or otherwise pathogenic. This means that if you eat GE foods, virus genes that may be harmful, can end up in your cells.
Liver changes from GE food
Liver changes were found in mice fed on Genetically Engineered Soy Beans.
Ultramicroscopic study revealed significant changes in the cell nucleus.
This abnormality in the liver cells indicates that GE foods may cause serious disturbances in cellular function that may affect health.
Mass death of Sheep from grazing GE cotton field
At least 1 820 sheep were reported dead after grazing on post-harvest Bt cotton crops; the symptoms and post-mortem findings strongly suggest they died from severe toxicity.
This was uncovered in a preliminary investigation conducted by civil society organisations in just four villages in India. The actual problem is likely to be much greater.
This is the second instance of GE-plants killing animals feeding upon it. In both this case, and that of cows killed as described above, the plants were genetically manipulated with a gene producing the insect toxin of Bacillus Thuringiensis (Bt).
The serious thing about this is that the same toxin-producing gene is found in some GE-foods intended for human consumption, including GE-maize (for example Syngenta Bt11 Maize) and GE-potatoes (recently offered to Russia).
GE soy may cause long time allergy problems
The inserted gene in the soy contains an allergenic sequence common to shrimps protein. It is suspected that it may cause persistent allergy problems because it is taken up by intestinal bacteria who can continue producing the allergenic protein.
In the UK there was a 50% increase of GE soy allergy after the introduction of Monsantos RR soy. The connection could not be definitely proven, considering the mentioned allergen in RR soy, scientists find it likely that it was the cause.
GE Maize approved as human food caused negative effects in mice
The research on NK603 maize from Monsanto was independently assessed by the independent french research institute CRIIGEN. In a report, released in June 2007, they pointed out that there were 60 significant differences between rats that were fed the GE maize and those fed normal maize (all for 90 days). The first group showed differences in their kidney, brain, heart and liver measurements, as well as significant weight differences.
CRIIGEN concludes that the results indicate a negative effect of the maize.
Animals Avoid GE Food
Experimental and anecdotal evidence shows that animals seek to avoid GE food and do not thrive if forced to consume such food.
In a study, the mortality rate was twice as high among the chickens eating GE maize as compared with those fed commercial non-GE hybrid maize.
An anonymous scientist reported: "Generally, the reports are concerned with Bt maize. Many farmers feed maize to their cattle just as it grows, without mixing in other feedstuffs. Typical reports are that the farmer buys a new shipment of maize, which his cattle either refuse to eat or eat with reduced consumption. Upon making enquiries, he discovers that the maize is a genetically modified variety. When he replaces it with a non-modified maize, the cattle start eating again. There have been dozens of such reports over the last two years."
GE crops causing agricultural crisis in Argentina
Argentina has suffered an environmental crisis with 'superweeds' overrunning the countryside and farmers reporting health problems, experts warn.
Since 1997, genetically-modified soya has been planted over almost half the country's arable land. Now farmers are having to use more and more herbicides to control the resistant weeds, damaging the soil's fertility for generations.
A study, detailed in the respected journal New Scientist, has found that over-use of weedkillers is rendering the soil 'inert' - and directly affecting human health.
FDA suppressed report on harmful effects of GE food
The safety of the first GE product intended for human food, the GE-tomato Flavrsavr, was studied very extensively and the result was used as a showcase of the safety of GE food. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of USA stated that the "proven safety of FlavrSavr" demonstrated that GE-foods in general are safe, and decided consequently not to demand as rigorous safety examinations for other GE-foods. In stead a very liberal procedure based on the principle of "substantial equivalence" was established, which did not require any careful testing of toxic or other harmful substances.
This decision was completely unscientific, as it is a well established fact that every case of genetic engineering has unique effects, so it is not justified to draw a general conclusion from a special case.
Moreover, several years later it was discovered that, in one of the "safety showcase" reports, it was found that the GE-tomato Flavrsavr caused lesions in the stomachs of mice. However, this finding was suppressed by FDA.
It was also discovered that, prior to FDA's decision to allow GE foods to be used as human food, FDA's own scientific experts expressed serious concerns concerning the safety of GE foods. They warned that genetic engineering is different than traditional breeding techniques and may have different risks.
The liberal safety assessment procedure established by FDA in 1994 has been applied on all GE foods in the market today and it is still applied in spite of extensive and serious critisism from a large number of scientific experts.
Leading Scientist sacked after presidential intervention
Dr Arpad Pusztai, a world renowned nutrition expert, expressed doubts about the safety of GE foods on BBC TV "World In Action broadcast" in August 1998. Because he was a leading expert, this was a great sensation. So Pusztai's critisim was aired all over the world.
But a few days later again, all over the world, the story was aired that he was an old man (68) who had confused his results, making wrong conclusions. This was however a lie. Now it has been revealed that Blair was forced by President Clinton to sack him and to create a suitable excuse to disregard Pusztais opinion.

"Genetically Engineered Food - Safety Problems"

genetically modified food
July 27th, 2007 by levani
“Genetically Modified (GM) foods are produced from genetically modified organisms (GMO) which have had their genome altered through genetic engineering techniques. The general principle of producing a GMO is to insert DNA that has been taken from another organism and modified in the laboratory into an organism’s genome to produce both new and useful traits or phenotypes. Typically this is done using DNA from certain types of bacteria” (www.wikipedia.com).
Some argue that there is more than enough food in the world and that the hunger crisis is caused by problems in food distribution and politics, not production, so people should not be offered food that may carry some degree of risk.
Others oppose genetic engineering on the grounds that genetic modifications might have unforeseen consequences, both in the initially modified organisms and their environments. Activists opposed to genetic engineering say that with current recombinant technology there is no way to ensure that genetically modified organisms will remain under control, and the use of this technology outside secure laboratory environments carries potentially unacceptable risks to both farmed and wild ecosystems. Although some scientists have claimed that selective breeding is a form of genetic engineering, (e.g., maize was modified from teosinte, dogs have evolved with human intervention over the course of tens of thousands of years from wolves), others assert that modern transgenesis-based genetic engineering is capable of delivering changes faster than, and sometimes of different types from, traditional breeding methods.
This problem is espacially acute for the USA. There are a lot agencies and organizations which try to solve this problem. One of the biggest is the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). It is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services and is responsible for regulating food, dietary supplements, drugs, biological medical products, blood products, medical devices, radiation-emitting devices, veterinary products, and cosmetics in the United States. Of course it has several serious achivements in this field but the most important problem is that only less than 1% of imported (in the USA) food is inspected by this agency. Besides, it has no control on some very popular food in the USA. So, FDA’s existence maybe is under a big question. We think that this problem must be solved because our lives depend on this, we eat either poisoned or fresh and pure food depends on this. The FDA and such kind of agencies must cover this uncontroled food. We must be sure that the food that goes from our nation’s ports to our families’ dinner tables is safe.

government, treason and plot.
i see no reason why government treason
should ever be forgot
everyone who knows what is about to happen:
lets march to our courthouses and capitals with a clear message, "prosecute these criminals!!"
my name is christa hudson. i am a mother, a wife, and an activist. i am ashamed of how the american people seem to be doing nothing about the tyranny staring them in the face. then, it came to me: people are doing nothing because they dont know what to do. so i propose a plan that might help us save america from these criminals.
lets all stay in our respective towns, no matter how small, and go to the courthouse lawn with a single, concise message: "PROSECUTE THESE CRIMINALS". the DA's and the courts are the only ones who can stand up for our country and communities. i would like to do something as follows: walk into the courthouse and ask to speak to judges and the DA. have a large number of people with you, including large numbers of press, with the same message. state,"we all just want to talk. we are all just concerned citizens. we would like you to call for the prosecution of president bush and his cabinet, on our behalf." that is it. nothing more. if every town in america did this, something massive might happen. this is our last hope. we just have to maintain posture (no cussing or outrage), and have ONE message: "PROSECUTE THESE CRIMINALS". thank you for hearing me out. i think this may be the last time we can even try. please take this seriously, and foward to everyone on your mailing lists.
for a list of crimes against bush and his cabinet, go here:
the crimes begin at about page thirteen.

WHAT: A pre-planned collapse of the US (and global) financial and economic systems.
WHO: The same characters who perpetrated the original 911.
WHERE: New York City & DC, of course. Plus a sideshow in Washington state.
WHEN: The days surrounding September 11, naturally.
HOW: Instead of painted drones, missiles with wings & big fins, and fake airplanes, they used the much more stealthy short seller.
WHY: To remake the economic/financial order of the world into a “PPP”.
WHY Really: Think about it ! And then ask yourself, “Cui bono?”
The 911 blueprint worked so magically for the world controllers that they were compelled to use virtually the same playbook. “If it ain’t broke, why fix it?
So, what’s the real deal here?
By analogy, let’s take a quick look at the 911 timeline and stack it up against the new 2008 Financial “911”, as it began to unfold earlier this year.
1. The Bear Stearns collapse that began in March 2008 is analogous to the 1st World Trade Center bombing in 1993. Just a warm up. This was preceded by a little failure back in January featuring Countrywide – the largest US mortgage lender.
2. The nationalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac marks the beginning of the new 911. Both in the DC area, they were the first to come down this time. Just as they struck at the heart of the military complex, this time they went for the jugular of the national real estate market. Remember – this is a financial 911.
3. Next came this year’s version of the twin towers, building 7 and other assorted NYC landmarks in the form of Lehman Brothers, AIG, Merrill Lynch, as well as Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs in their “new & improved” form. Basically took out the whole of American investment brokerage, heh?!
4. And, of course, we still have Washington Mutual out there in the boonies just like the one that “crashed” in a PA farm field. Update: WashMu is now history! As is another “little” bank by the name of Wachovia.
5. Their MO! What else, but controlled demolition? Throughout 2008, and especially this month of September, we have seen some of the world’s largest banks, brokerage houses, mortgage lenders, insurance companies and investment brokers go bust, as each of them fell perfectly into their own footprint faster than you can say: CONTROLLED DEMOLITION!!!
6. The 700 billion dollar Bailout Plan is just like the Patriot Act, isn’t it? Only this time it’s maybe a 1 or 2 page document (in its original form) that conferred absolute authority on the Executive Branch to do just about anything they want with the taxpayer’s money. And they want it rubber stamped now. Not tomorrow. NOW!!! Without discussion, or unnecessary congressional debate. Talk about Shock & Awe being used against the American people, and their elected representatives!?! “The Greatest Depression” never sounded more like “Weapons of Mass Destruction”, eh?!?!
7. Now we know we can expect further gyrations, panics and precipitous declines in the market and elsewhere, just as we had anthrax attacks in the Capital, beltway snipers in Maryland in October of ’02, the 3/11/04 train bombings in Madrid, and the 7/7/05 bombings in London. Not to mention the 50+ other synthetic terror events staged throughout the world to enforce compliance and create distraction.
8. The sudden and dramatic downfall of NY Gov Eliot Spitzer can also now be seen in its proper light. Having left the reservation one too many times, he simply could not be trusted to go with the flow. He had their numbers, their signatures (especially their MO’s), their addresses --- the whole ball of wax, as well as his own reputation to burnish. Eliot, to seal his fate, wrote a masterful expose on the subprime mortgage fiasco/fraud that was published in the WashPo just weeks before his public humiliation. He had recently testified before Congress in great revelatory fashion as well. The elimination of John O’Neil, Head of Security at the WTC complex, is quite similar, except that John O. – a great patriot – died on 911, having just been given the job.
9. To date, the most obvious and glaring example of this manipulated takedown is the case of a NY Senator. His letter to the FDIC contained confidential information that triggered the IndyMac bank collapse in July. California AG Jerry Brown was called to review the entire affair after the OTS Director explicitly blamed the letter for causing a run on the bank (3rd largest bank failure in US history). This episode is eerily reminiscent of Larry Silverstein’s order to, “Pull it.” just prior to the expertly controlled demolition of Building # 7on 911.
10. Just as 911 was perpetrated as a cover for: inaugurating the War on Terror, overtly advancing the NWO regime globally (in contrast to this previously covert operation), imposing a police state (Homeland Security) in the US (by gutting the US Constitution), UK and elsewhere, dominating and securing oil/gas reserves in the Middle East and Cacaucus (to include running energy pipelines through Afghanistan and stealing Iraq’s oil wealth via military invasion), jump starting the Afghan opium trade, etc., the ECO/FIN 911 of ’08 is a cover for many of these same agenda items. However, there is one little item that is particularly high on the current agenda. And that concerns the derivatives market, which in its totality approximates somewhere between 750 trillion and 1 quadrillion dollars of instruments as of 2008. In fact, the sub prime mortgage defaults are just a tip of the tip of the iceberg when compared to the real megilla – DERIVATIVES. This is what they’re really worried about, and having to cover for. Except this is a quadrillion dollar megilla that can’t be covered without unraveling the entire capitalistic system, and its fascist corpocracy and kleptocratic oligarchy.
11. And then there is the teenie-weenie matter concerning the Federal Reserve, and its collection agency – the IRS. The man standing behind this curtain has a lot at stake, especially in the form of mountains of evidence that will indict, and convict, the entire system. Lots of evidence was destroyed during and after 911, as will happen after many of these Wall Street firms are taken over, nationalized, liquidated, merged and disappeared. The veil, however, has already been lifted.
Does anyone see a pattern here?!
The real lesson to be gleaned from this analysis is that events of such enormity and consequence are rarely spontaneous and unchoreographed. Especially when they happen just weeks from an era defining presidential election. They have obviously been planning this one for a long time, and it has been fastidiously engineered to have a very definite effect and desired outcome – a permanent planetary plantation (PPP).
The execution, thus far, has been flawless. Even for those of us who stood there on the 1st 911, and knew it was a fraud while the buildings were coming down, this one is exceedingly more difficult to penetrate. However, penetrate we will, until every last conspirator is sitting before the TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION spillin’ the beans. The ultimate and lasting effect of these inquiries will be a New World Order of our making, not theirs. The only remaining, $64,000 question will undoubtedly be, “What do we do with them after we head them off at the pass?”
For the uninitiated, it may take quite a lot to wrap your mind around this extremely complex and convoluted plot, but, please, just be patient. As this drama plays out, the true intentions of the primary perpetrators will become manifest as they unwittingly reveal themselves by their handiwork. As Eliot Spitzer, no - Eliot Ness, nee – Sherlock Holmes once alluded to – a fingerprint inadvertently left as evidence is impossible to erase.
The pre-planned Financial/Economic 911 of 2008
You see, the short sellers, unlike the “airplanes”, are still with us. Each one had a target to take down which they did with amazing speed and dexterity. And the myriad transactions that converged to topple their prey are all preserved somewhere, in some huge database, with multiple backups to serve as confirmation of trades of staggering amounts. AHHH! Nothing like computers, especially when they’re not confiscated and shipped off to China for permanent disposal.
May all financial wizards and economic soothsayers, henceforth, be inspired to stare into their crystal ball and divine the upcoming financial and economic events of global proportions with the keenest of acumen and sleuthing. As we shine the LIGHT of our collective awareness on these rapidly unfolding schemes, we will serve as beacons of revelation, and hope to the world.
Remember – we now know the script. We know the major players involved. We know their MO: Controlled Demolition. We are able to watch the crimes being committed in real time. Each of us has now been thusly notified, and empowered, to serve as a vector of dissemination of this critical information. So -----> LET’S GET BUSY ! ! !

"I had to shoot you down" -"Uncle Sam"
June 28th 2001
"Planes" hit towers on September 11th 2001?
On June 28th 2001, 2 months before 9/11 attacks, an American patriot named William Cooper talked about eminent 9/11 conspiracy that the United States government will perpetrate against its own people.
On November 5th, 2001, William Cooper was shot and killed by police officers.
Don't blame the cops, they just thought they were doing our country a favor. A lot of people were murdered past 9/11 by ordinary American patriots. Whose blood boiled, and who craved revenged. Those mislead people took revenge on Hindu cab drivers, 7/11 attendants, and other Muslim looking individuals.
That rage that 9/11 inflicted onto us is exactly what the real terrorists in Washington D.C. wanted to achieve. It's a military tactic and it's called divide and conquer.
That's why America did not come out of 9/11 stronger and more united.
The agenda is to kill most of you people. 6 billion earth population, too many, the agenda is to kill most of you and only leave 500 million living on the face of the earth. "
The agenda is to keep you asleep and happy, and dumb, and ridiculing this crazy conspiracy theories.
Now we both know if there are facts to a theory then it's no longer a theory, it's reality.
Watch these movies to find out why those terrorists are trying to kill off world population.

Wrote this early 2001, posted it at Bart Cop.
I think, upon reading it now, that the article shows I felt a foreboding of evil.
Democracy Murdered, Film at ...?
Why does the whole rest of the world
know that Bush stole the election,
but the Americans get to be kept in
the dark about it?
I wonder why investors are pulling money
out of the US?
As well as talking down the economy into a sell off.
The man's Residency is cursed, no doubt about it.
I don't care *how* lucky he is supposed to be.
There should be a "Gate" Topic devoted
to Voter Scam Gate. Cheat Gate.
Whatever it is people want to call it.
Interfering with an election by a government
official is a crime punishable by a $10,000 fine or
one year in jail. There are many that should be prosecuted.
Why isn't Katherine Harris being fined for
hiring a private consulting firm for $4 million oftaxpayersdollars (as reported by the BBC and all over Europe)in order that 60,000 voters should be taken off the voter roles for being identified as felons. The error ratewas 95%?
The people so disenfranchised Democrats and Blacks.
Why isn't John Sweeney of NY being prosecuted for
shouting, "shut it down" and intimidating the people
counting the votes in Dade county?
Why are the men and women who were aides to
Tom DeLay, who were flown to FL on a paid vacation
to pose as grass roots citizens and behave a thugs
not being prosecuted?
The SCOTUS and the Republicans overthrew our
Democracy and to get it back they must be impeached:
This must not be covered up. Nor can it be
in the long run. Bush must be thrown out of office.
And this is a major argument for that end.
The corruption of the electoral process;
his indifference to it and his shamelessly benefiting
from it. And allowing his friends to benefit from it.
I believe the Justices of the SC were acting
cynically and consciously to do whatever it took
to ensure Bush's election. To imagine anything
else stretches my credulity. Scalia was "unconsciously"
making sure he's to become Chief Justice? That's funny.
He based his career on "State's rights"
and "Judicial restraint" What a joke!
What fools people are now to take them seriously.
I believe that the Press is intimidated
by the Far Right Repubs who jump up and down
and scream "Law" and meanwhile subvert it.
Where does the Law reside? Not in the pronouncements of a corrupt judiciary.
Not in the actions of pompous Justices who
impose their own will by technical and arbitrary rules.
Justice Scalia argued that the court
was acting to protect the legitimacy
of a Bush victory. But the Court's
decision damaged Bush's legitimacy
(not to mention to its own) much more than
anything else they could possibly have done.
It's obvious that the action of Scalia
was to make sure Bush had a Presidency.
He mentioned "legitimacy of his election,"
- - as if such an election existed,
which it did not under FL law at that time.
By backing up Bush's claim: that Bush
had been "elected," he repeated a lie.
He gave substance to a lie. He just
made up Law. The "legitimacy" smokescreen
was just a "claim." Scalia knew damn well
there would never be any "legitimacy" to
what Scalia did except as he writes the
Law and therefore Bush's claim is bona
fide if Scalia pronounces it so, by definition.
He didn't care. He's taken his gloves off.
That's why people are rightly frightened.
Supposedly Chief Justice Rehnquist and
his colleagues had hoped that history
would remember them well. They would have liked that.
But not as much as they liked to make
sure Bush got into power. Power is more important.
That's the name of the game.
If they honestly cared more about how
they'd be remembered, they wouldn't have
done this. Ruling the country is a more
important to them than what anyone thinks.
The SCOTUS deliberately setup a no win
situation for Gore. And they naturally
tried in the hearing of the oral arguments
to pretend to be fair. And they had the boldness
to have demanded of Boies that he tell them
what is a fair standard for the re-count.
But neither he, nor us, nor they, could go back in time.
And they knew that. And they had the boldness
to claim it was an issue of "equal protection."
Straight out of the book _Animal Farm_ it is:
"Your vote is not being thrown out like
those of other unfortunates; We must remedy that.
We are not protecting you adequately.
We must throw out your vote so all can be
It's not "equal protection" but "pretend
protection and equally arbitrary disenfranchisement."
They can't give you your vote back because
that is not fair to the people who's vote
were suppressed or who's votes got lost?
But they are naming it "Protection?"
Who exactly are they protecting? Only Bush was named.
How can anyone believe their goodwill after
what they did? The 5 "SCOTUS" had the brazenness to
demand Boies tell them how to repair it? After
it was a fait accompli!
They would've liked to have gotten themselves
off the hook. But after all, it was too late for that.
That's why Scalia was all smiles.
Our institutions are the sum of the people who
inhabit them. If the standard goes down, I see now,
the body politic gets weak. The weakness doesn't
erupt into sickness necessarily right away.
But December 12th we crossed that line into sickness.
If the sanctity of the governmental Institutionsare not upheld - - And I don't mean because of something
as minor as a blowjob; If the Institutions are notprotected, the country is prone then to increasing violations.
Then the ultimate value of those Institutions
will become zero or less.
An article on the Supremes I read recently
detailed that it was the respect of the Supreme Court
Institution and the delicacy with which that
respect was held that kept the two swing Justices
from overturning Roe vs. Wade. Maybe that is part of
Scalia's motive in destroying the reputation
of the court at home and in the rest of the world.
He is a Roman Catholic and his loyalties are
obviously with overturning Roe v. Wade for
his G-d and for his Church.
He is an operative for the Republican
Religious Right, not a jurist. He has proved that.
The Court is sullied now, so there is no
reason for anyone to uphold its reputation anymore.
The masks are off. The green curtain is pulled
back from the racist wizard from AZ
and pulled back from the smug and faux fancy cohorts
who voted with him. And now Scalia can get his way.
No one will persuade O 'Connor and Kennedy to
hold back from the decision of Roe vs. Wade
because of fear to harm the Institution of the court.
There is no more reputation.
The Supreme Court respectability is now a pretentious
charade. Every one of Nino Scalia's opinions
is now rendered questionable. His judgment is
proven by this to be worse than poor. It's proven
to be completely arbitrary. In fact, the ruling
is probably illegal because Thomas didn't recuse
himself (it broke the law that his wife will
benefit from the decision because of her job
"headhunting" for the Enterprise Institute.
Rehnquist's involvement was illegal because two
of his sons work for a law firm that work for Bush.
And Scalia broke the Law because his son works for Ted "Theodore" Olson)
(Ted Olsen, argued Bush vs. Gore for the Bush cabal
and so mourned his wife Barbara, who disappeared, by Ted's own contradictory word, on Ted's birthday Sept. 11th..that he remarried in 6 months.)
Why are no investigations being done of this fraud?
These three broke an actual law. It's not some
trumped up insinuation.
They do not care about the law.
They are seriously dangerous.
They only care about power.
What the Supreme Court have done is worse than the simple breaking of
some rule in a bid for a Faustian freedom,
since Faust, at least, made a barter,
since in the bargain we all were betrayed.
They threw away our Democracy so they could,
in what they pretend to be their superior
wisdom, but is in fact their job as operatives
for the Radical Republican Party, to decide on
what would be our government. The "Supreme Court 5"betrayed those values upon which our Country was founded.
Our tradition here was that of the Enlightenment.
The Tradition is that the settlers came here
to escape and avoid the arbitrary rule of those
in power. Our Government was constructed in particular to avoid the arbitrary rule of power.
The remedy in order for us to return to
our original form of government, determined
by the rules of that form of government,
is to Impeach and remove Rehnquist, Scalia and Thomas.
I call for this here and now.
If this is not done our Democracy is in peril.
The betrayal of the American people
and the American tradition by this Supreme Court
and by the ultra-right factions of the
Republican party, I am afraid can never
breed happiness nor anything good. It is based
upon hubris. George Bush's highhanded
actions and disregard for the people
of this Country is based upon the disenfranchisement
of elderly Jews and Blacks and millions who
voted for the better, the more qualified, and the
smarter man. No good can ever come from that.
I shiver for our beautiful Lady Democracy;
224 years old. But way too young anyhow to
She is supposed to be immortal.
In our lifetimes, we will never know her immortality
for she died for us December 12th. I never knew how muchI truly and keenly loved her. In case you didn't guess I curse "Nino" Scalia.

Marauding elephants, aggressive sea lions, snap-happy crocodiles... As animal attacks on humans reach frightening levels, scientists are beginning to understand exactly what the beasts are thinking. And it's not good. Will Storr reports
In a tiny village in rural Assam, two terrified children will tonight sleep in a tree house. It doesn't matter how much their mother scolds them; there's no way they're going to bed down there. Not after what happened. They can still remember that night, of course - being picked up by their mother, and how hard she covered their mouths with her hands to stop them screaming. They can remember the other sounds, too.
The elephants had come in from the forest again. Then they saw one, a vast dark hulk looming out of the black towards their door. Their Dad tried to push it away. That's when the elephant carried him round the side of the house and killed him.
Elephants haven't always behaved like this. But in recent years, in India and all over Africa, too, some menacing change has come over them. And not just elephants - it's almost any species. This disquieting pattern has only recently been detected, in part because it is so disparate and weird. But it's now widely accepted that the relationship between humans and animals is changing. One of the world's leading ethologists (specialists in animal behaviour) believes that a critical point has been crossed and animals are beginning to snap back. After centuries of being eaten, evicted, subjected to vivisection, killed for fun, worn as hats and made to ride bicycles in circuses, something is causing them to turn on us. And it is being taken seriously enough by scientists that it has earned its own acronym: HAC - 'human-animal conflict'.
It's happening everywhere. Authorities in America and Canada are alarmed at the increase in attacks on humans by mountain lions, cougars, foxes and wolves. Romania and Colombia have seen a rise in bear maulings. In Mexico, in just the past few months, there's been a spate of deadly shark attacks with The LA Times reporting that, 'the worldwide rate in recent years is double the average of the previous 50'. America and Sierra Leone have witnessed assaults and killings by chimps who, according to New Scientist, 'almost never attack people'. In Uganda, they have started killing children by biting off their limbs then disembowelling them.
There has been a surge in wolf attacks in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Russia and France. In Australia, there has been a run of dingo killings, and crocodile violence is up. In Beijing, injuries from cats and dogs have swelled by 34 per cent, year-on-year. In America, the number of humans killed by pet dogs has increased sharply since 2000. In Australia, dog attacks are up 20 per cent. In Britain, nearly 4,000 people needed hospital treatment for dog bites in 2007, a figure that has doubled in the past four years. In Bombay, petrified residents are being slaughtered in ever-increasing numbers by leopards, leading J. C. Daniel, a leopard specialist, to comment, 'We have to study why the animal is coming out. It never came out before.' In Edinburgh, in June, there was a string of bizarre fox attacks - a pensioner was among the victims. In Singapore, residents have been being terrorised by packs of macaques. Sharon Chan, a national parks official, told reporters, 'It's a very weird situation.'
The numbers are disturbing enough, but the menacing changes in behaviour are especially worrying to scientists. In Australia, the biologist Dr Scoresby Shepherd - who pointed out that in areas where shark attacks used to happen every three or four decades, they are now taking place at least once a year - has suggested that sharks are switching their prey to humans. In Los Angeles, Prof Lee Fitzhugh has come to the same conclusion about mountain lions. In San Francisco, a spate of sea lion assaults lead one local to comment, 'I've been swimming here for 70 years and nothing like this has happened before.' In Cameroon, for the first time, gorillas have been throwing bits of tree at humans. They're using weapons against us.
It's easy to see why some suspect revenge. The theory that the animals of the three elements are conspiring against us gained popularity in 2006, when the Australian television presenter Steve Irwin was speared through the heart by a stingray off the north Queensland coast. In the aftermath, the phrase 'freak accident' was used in news reports. When, just six weeks later, the same thing happened to James Bertakis, of Miami (he lived only because, unlike Irwin, he didn't pull the barbed sting out), people started wondering. Then, in March this year, Judy Kay Zagorski was boating on the Florida Keys when a stingray leapt from the water and fatally struck her in the face.
Any sane person might decide that his theory, which posits that beasts are working in concert to take revenge on humans, is insane. But in the regions where the most research into HAC is being carried out, scientists have concluded that revenge for our myriad barbarities could indeed be a motive.
All over Africa, India and parts of south-east Asia, elephants have started attacking humans in unprecedented numbers. Not just killing - they're rampaging through villages and stomping crops, terrorising local populations in any way they can. 'What's happening today is extraordinary,' Dr Gay Bradshaw, a world authority on elephants, told reporters in 2006. 'Where for centuries humans and elephants lived in relatively peaceful co-existence, there is now hostility and violence.' Bradshaw is the director of the Kerulos Centre for Animal Psychology and Trauma Recovery, in Oregon. 'When you see reports of elephants running into crops or attacking people, they're highly stressed,' she tells me. 'And there are multiple stressors - violence, lack of food, lack of water; their families are being broken up; their society is collapsing. All of these things are human-derived.'
Bradshaw describes the elephants as being 'under siege' from the locals. But the violence against humans has increased so suddenly, and reached such levels, that these traditional factors aren't thought to be sufficient to explain it. Bradshaw and her colleagues now think that there's been a massive, pan-species psychological collapse throughout the world's pachyderms. In essence, we're witnessing the dysfunctional shenanigans of a generation of depraved elephants. These are individuals who have become psychologically fractured after being orphaned at a developmentally delicate age or are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after watching their families being slaughtered.
'You could make a parallel between elephants and people who are undergoing genocide and war,' Bradshaw says. 'They've gone through massive killings and many have sustained culls or severe poaching, so they've witnessed the violence and they're traumatised. It's critical to understand that when you have an experience at a young age, or through adolescence or even as an adult, it enters into the brain. In other cases, the normal rearing process is disrupted or conducted by distressed parents, so you're creating individuals who are mentally challenged.'
Such claims might be dismissed as so much Disneyfied anthropomorphism if Bradshaw did not have the observational, psychological and neuroscientific evidence to back them up. And, she says, it might not be just in elephants that this critical point has been breached. 'I think we're well past the critical point,' she says. 'Well past. People are starting to notice these atypical behaviours in an array of species.'
Of the question of elephant revenge, though, she is more cautious. 'Put yourself in an elephant's shoes. What's it like living in Africa or Asia when you're surrounded by an active threat, not just to you but to your family? Let's take, for example, one of the things that's happening in Africa. Females are starting to charge lorries. Why? It's hard to understand the motive. Perhaps she's traumatised. Perhaps it's pre-emptive - they may have a gun. It may be self?defence. And other times it may well be revenge. It's not that I don't think elephants have the capacity.' Dr Marc Bekoff, a leading ethologist, agrees. 'We need to be careful when using that sort of language,' he says. 'But I don't think there's any doubt that, in certain situations, animals show revenge.'
At first he thought it was a dream; that shuffling, that banging that bulged out of the darkness around him. By the time Michael Fitzgerald had roused himself and put on his slippers, he decided it was burglars. They were in the garage. He crept forward, readying himself for what awaited behind the electric door that was slowly, noisily rising. He peered in. It was a badger. Just a badger! He'd never seen one so close before. The badger looked up, then slowly, calmly walked up to him. 'Pam!' he called to his wife. 'Get a camera!' Two minutes later, blood from his arm was spattered over his front door.
'It was some kind of hell,' Fitzgerald, from Evesham, told the BBC, in 2003. 'His razor-blade teeth were around my arm.' Even after he had shaken if off, it gave chase, biting his legs and arms. 'I never envisaged I would be seeing my own insides,' he said. The badger then embarked on an 18-hour rampage around the town.
Stories like these remind us that there are millions of beasts armed with teeth and stingers, who can out-sniff, out-run, out-fly, out-fight and out-bite every one of us. The eerie truth is that, right now, we're surrounded. As a species, we've been at the top of the food chain for so long, we've forgotten that 'humans' are mere anthropoid apes and, in distant millennia, we had to fight the feral armies to get here. In our hubris, we imagine we're an animal apart. For centuries, we've been told by priests and scientists that animals are not much more than unfeeling, unthinking, unselfconscious automatons. They're a gift from God, and their purpose is to have paracetamol rubbed into their eyes, to be turned into fancy trousers to be stuffed with nuts on His birthday. Many mainstream scientists still warn against anthropomorphism. But it doesn't stop the many people who are secretly wondering what's really going on behind those inscrutable black eyes? Are the birds talking about us? Do lobsters sulk? Can one moose love another? The more scientists have discovered about the inner lives of animals, the more troubling and strange things have become. 'Things are really changing,' acknowledges Bekoff. 'There's a lot of new behavioural research, a lot of new neuroscience research that demonstrates they are far more complex than was thought. We're not inserting into animals something they don't have.'
Bekoff describes the sound Darwinian logic beneath this gigantic paradigm shift. Simply, if our brains have developed the capacity for a rich emotional inner-life over the millions of years they've been evolving, then why not theirs? 'If you believe in biological continuity then, if we have emotions, they have emotions. If we have a heart, they have a heart.'

Body: "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free," said Jefferson, "it expects what never was and never will be. . . . The people cannot be safe without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe." Across the Atlantic another passionate believer in reason was thinking about the same time, in almost precisely similar terms. Here is what John Stuart Mill wrote of his father, the utilitarian philosopher, James Mill: "So complete was his reliance upon the influence of reason over the minds of mankind, whenever it is allowed to reach them, that he felt as if all would be gained, if the whole population were able to read, and if all sorts of opinions were allowed to be addressed to them by word or in writing, and if by the suffrage they could nominate a legislature to give effect to the opinions they had adopted." All is safe, all would be gained! Once more we hear the note of eighteenth-century optimism. Jefferson, it is true, was a realist as well as an optimist. He knew by bitter experience that the freedom of the press can be shamefully abused. "Nothing," he declared, "can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper." And yet, he insisted (and we can only agree with him), "within the pale of truth, the press is a noble institution, equally the friend of science and civil liberty." Mass communication, in a word, is neither good nor bad; it is simply a force and, like any other force, it can be used either well or ill. Used in one way, the press, the radio and the cinema are indispensable to the survival of democracy. Used in another way, they are among the most powerful weapons in the dictator's armory. In the field of mass communications as in almost every other field of enterprise, technological progress has hurt the Little Man and helped the Big Man. As lately as fifty years ago, every democratic country could boast of a great number of small journals and local newspapers. Thousands of country editors expressed thousands of independent opinions. Somewhere or other almost anybody could get almost anything printed. Today the press is still legally free; but most of the little papers have disappeared. The cost of wood-pulp, of modern printing machinery and of syndicated news is too high for the Little Man. In the totalitarian East there is political censorship, and the media of mass communication are controlled by the State. In the democratic West there is economic censorship and the media of mass communication are controlled by members of the Power Elite. Censorship by rising costs and the concentration of communication power in the hands of a few big concerns is less objectionable than State ownership and government propaganda; but certainly it is not something of which a Jeffersonian democrat could possibly approve.
In regard to propaganda the early advocates of universal literacy and a free press envisaged only two possibilities: the propaganda might be true, or it might be false. They did not foresee what in fact has happened, above all in our Western capitalist democracies -- the development of a vast mass communications industry, concerned in the main neither with the true nor the false, but with the unreal, the more or less totally irrelevant. In a word, they failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions.
In the past most people never got a chance of fully satisfying this appetite. They might long for distractions, but the distractions were not provided. Christmas came but once a year, feasts were "solemn and rare," there were few readers and very little to read, and the nearest approach to a neighborhood movie theater was the parish church, where the performances, though frequent, were somewhat monotonous. For conditions even remotely comparable to those now prevailing we must return to imperial Rome, where the populace was kept in good humor by frequent, gratuitous doses of many kinds of entertainment -- from poetical dramas to gladiatorial fights, from recitations of Virgil to all-out boxing, from concerts to military reviews and public executions. But even in Rome there was nothing like the non-stop distraction now provided by newspapers and magazines, by radio, television and the cinema. In Brave New World non-stop distractions of the most fascinating nature (the feelies, orgy-porgy, centrifugal bumble-puppy) are deliberately used as instruments of policy, for the purpose of preventing people from paying too much attention to the realities of the social and political situation. The other world of religion is different from the other world of entertainment; but they resemble one another in being most decidedly "not of this world." Both are distractions and, if lived in too continuously, both can become, in Marx's phrase, "the opium of the people" and so a threat to freedom. Only the vigilant can maintain their liberties, and only those who are constantly and intelligently on the spot can hope to govern themselves effectively by democratic procedures. A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time, not on the spot, not here and now and in the calculable future, but somewhere else, in the irrelevant other worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the encroachments of those who would manipulate and control it.
In their propaganda today's dictators rely for the most part on repetition, suppression and rationalization -- the repetition of catchwords which they wish to be accepted as true, the suppression of facts which they wish to be ignored, the arousal and rationalization of passions which may be used in the interests of the Party or the State. As the art and science of manipulation come to be better understood, the dictators of the future will doubtless learn to combine these techniques with the non-stop distractions which, in the West, are now threatening to drown in a sea of irrelevance the rational propaganda essential to the maintenance of individual liberty and the survival of democratic institutions.
- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited, 1958
Full text online:
Brave New World Revisited (Harper & Row, 1958), written by Huxley almost thirty years after Brave New World, was a non-fiction work in which Huxley considered whether the world had moved toward or away from his vision of the future from the 1930's.
He believed when he wrote the original novel that it was a reasonable guess as to where the world might go in the future but in Brave New World Revisited he concluded that the world was becoming much more like Brave New World much faster than he thought.
Huxley analyzed the causes of this, such as overpopulation as well as all the means by which populations can be controlled. He was particularly interested in the effects of drugs and subliminal suggestion. Brave New World Revisited is different in tone due to Huxley's evolving thought, as well as his conversion to Vedanta in the interim between the two books.

On Independence Day in 1909, the centennial year of Abraham Lincoln's birth, an ornate monument was dedicated to him in Scranton.
But sometime in the early decades of the 20th century, the 16-foot-tall structure simply vanished. No one still living seems to know where it went. ...
Local historians recently confirmed the memorial's existence in newspaper archives. Now they're trying to figure out what happened to it.
The monument was situated along the shore of man-made Lake Lincoln. One theory holds that when Lake Lincoln was renovated and expanded in the '20s, officials realized the monument was in the way and took it down. If that's true, there's little hope that the memorial's intricately carved stone base has survived. But the bronze bust may still be out there.
Trojan statue at Lincoln High defaced (in Leon County) [url]
Michael Turner stated he and a juvenile went to Lincoln High School with the intent to spray paint the statue. Turner stated that he used yellow and blue spray paint, painting the letters "GHH" on the stone base of the statue and spray painting the Lincoln High School sign at the front of the school with "Seniors 08".
Lincoln Statue Decapitated
The Abe Lincoln statue in Lithia Park is headless again.
Ashland police park patrol officer Nathan Twiss found Lincoln's head and hand missing Sunday morning. He said the vandalism took place sometime between 9 p.m. Saturday and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
Don Robertson, director of Parks and Recreation, said this was the fourth time Lincoln has been decapitated since 1915, when Gwin S. Butler donated the statue to the city to memorialize his stepfather, pioneer Jacob Thompson, who moved to Ashland in 1847. The six-foot-tall piece was originally sculpted in Florence, Italy, by A. Frilli.
One incident occurred in 1967. Hamid Ghavam, a Southern Oregon University student, repaired the head and removed blue paint from the statue in 1968.
Another beheading occurred more than 27 years ago and parks officials relegated Lincoln's likeness to a storage facility for more than a decade.
The statue was restored in 1990 and reintroduced to the public with a new head on its shoulders.
Robertson said the latest decapitation appeared deliberate. He said there had to be more than one person involved and that the vandals chiseled away at the head and then sawed off the metal rod used to secure the head.
Confederate group offers Jefferson Davis statue for Lincoln site
A Southern heritage group that opposed a statue of President Abraham Lincoln at the American Civil War Center is offering to donate a $100,000 statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis for the same site.
Brag Bowling, a spokesman for the Virginia division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, said the gift is intended to celebrate Davis's birth 200 years ago this month in Kentucky.
It is not, he said, payback for the Lincoln statue unveiled in 2003.
Newspaper cover photo shows "noose" around neck of Lincoln statue Read about the uproar here:
The actual story is also interesting: Ken Kahn, director of the arts council, talks about the impact of a new Lincoln-themed sculpture garden. http://www.courant.com/news/local/hc-sculpturegarden.artjun10,0,6009056.story
The theme is Abraham Lincoln — 11 of the statues are abstract interpretations of highlights from Lincoln's life, including the creation of the transcontinental railway and the emancipation of the slaves. Only two are actual depictions of the 16th president, whose 200th birthday next February is expected to draw even bigger crowds.
The turkey and the horse have their own stories — Lincoln was the first president to pardon a turkey on Thanksgiving and he rode horses in his youth. ...
Minor setbacks delayed the opening by several months. ... "A Welcome Conversation" — a larger than life statue of a young Lincoln valued at about $30,000 — was stolen from storage before it could be installed. It has since been reconstructed.

Kissinger's 1974 Plan for Food Control Genocide
by Joseph Brewda
Dec 08, 1995
On Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study, "National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests." The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser (the same post Scowcroft was to hold in the Bush administration), was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture.
The bogus arguments that Kissinger advanced were not original. One of his major sources was the Royal Commission on Population, which King George VI had created in 1944 "to consider what measures should be taken in the national interest to influence the future trend of population." The commission found that Britain was gravely threatened by population growth in its colonies, since "a populous country has decided advantages over a sparsely-populated one for industrial production." The combined effects of increasing population and industrialization in its colonies, it warned, "might be decisive in its effects on the prestige and influence of the West," especially effecting "military strength and security.
NSSM 200 similarly concluded that the United States was threatened by population growth in the former colonial sector. It paid special attention to 13 "key countries" in which the United States had a "special political and strategic interest": India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia. It claimed that population growth in those states was especially worrisome, since it would quickly increase their relative political, economic, and military strength.
For example, Nigeria: "Already the most populous country on the continent, with an estimated 55 million people in 1970, Nigeria's population by the end of this century is projected to number 135 million. This suggests a growing political and strategic role for Nigeria, at least in Africa." Or Brazil: "Brazil clearly dominated the continent demographically." The study warned of a "growing power status for Brazil in Latin America and on the world scene over the next 25 years.
Food as a weapon
There were several measures that Kissinger advocated to deal with this alleged threat, most prominently, birth control and related population-reduction programs. He also warned that "population growth rates are likely to increase appreciably before they begin to decline," even if such measures were adopted.
A second measure was curtailing food supplies to targetted states, in part to force compliance with birth control policies: "There is also some established precedent for taking account of family planning performance in appraisal of assistance requirements by AID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and consultative groups. Since population growth is a major determinant of increases in food demand, allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should take account of what steps a country is taking in population control as well as food production. In these sensitive relations, however, it is important in style as well as substance to avoid the appearance of coercion.
"Mandatory programs may be needed and we should be considering these possibilities now," the document continued, adding, "Would food be considered an instrument of national power? ... Is the U.S.
prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can't/won't control their population growth?"
Kissinger also predicted a return of famines that could make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary. "Rapid population growth and lagging food production in developing countries, together with the sharp deterioration in the global food situation in 1972 and 1973, have raised serious concerns about the ability of the world to feed itself adequately over the next quarter of century and beyond," he reported.
The cause of that coming food deficit was not natural, however, but was a result of western financial policy: "Capital investments for irrigation and infrastucture and the organization requirements for continuous improvements in agricultural yields may be beyond the financial and administrative capacity of many LDCs. For some of the areas under heaviest population pressure, there is little or no prospect for foreign exchange earnings to cover constantly increasingly imports of food.
"It is questionable," Kissinger gloated, "whether aid donor countries will be prepared to provide the sort of massive food aid called for by the import projections on a long-term continuing basis." Consequently, "large-scale famine of a kind not experienced for several decades—a kind the world thought had been permanently banished," was foreseeable—famine, which has indeed come to pass.
