Sibel Deniz Edmonds - State Dept. Quashed 9/11 Links To Global Drug Trade-FBI Whistleblower
LATEST: Sibel Deniz Edmonds was awaiting a June 14 court hearing to determine if she can publicly tell the full story of intelligence failures over the 9/11 attacks. The U.S. government wants her knowledge to
remain a state secret. Judge Reggie Walton has now called off the hearing --no reason cited, and no future date scheduled. The fourth time he's done this in past two years. Sibel Edmonds will hold a press conference with Daniel Ellsberg at 3rd & Const. Ave. on
Monday, June 14, at 9:30 AM in front of the Court.

Regarding Sibel Edmonds' CBS 60 minutes interview: CBS will be making a decision as to whether or not they will air the interview this Sunday or the following Sunday. This decision is being made between now and tomorrow morning. Sine Sibel Edmonds has a press conference this coming Monday and a Friday opportunity for congresspersons to meet with her in a secured setting where she will be able to legally bypass the gag order and speak what she knows, it is vital that the CBS interview air this Sunday, thus giving time for Congress and other folks to respond to the story. Its important that CBS interviews the interview this Sunday, tomorrow! * Please call Tanya Fimon 212 975 6631, and ask her to please air the interview this Sunday. Thanks. If any of you can afford the call, please do so. Leave a message. This interview will have very little impact if aired after Monday's court decision.

Buchanan interviewing Nader
Pat Buchanan: Then you would say it is not only Bush who is at fault, but Clinton and Bush and Reagan, all the way back? Ralph Nader: The subservience of our congressional and White House puppets to Israeli military policy has been consistent. Until '91, any dictator who was anti-Communist was our ally.

Bilderberg & G8 

Proof of a Conspiracy: Bilderberg and the Silent Media
The Bilderberg black-out in the U.S. press is evidence that the owners of America’s media are in collusion with the New World Order conspiracy.

Dawn of the G8 New World Order
In the last few days the totalitarian domination of the developing world has solidified around the annexation of Iraq. And the G8 elite have moved swiftly on to outline the next phase of their New World Order.

It may seem innocent enough to President Bush, the notion of training 100,000 teachers across the Middle East to improve the quality of education and perhaps also cut down on the chance that religious schools will crank out future terrorists.

Draft would create many problems, solve none
You can rarely go wrong by assuming the government is lying. Right now, the Pentagon denies any plans to restore the draft, even though the military clearly has too few soldiers. I'm the sort of person who grabs an umbrella whenever Donald H. Rumsfeld says the sun is shining. But in this case, the administration faces disbelief even though it's telling the truth.

So, let's take a look at the idea of Saudi Arabia as the perpetrator of 9-11. Why would they do it? What would they gain? Immediately after the attacks, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the attack would mean for US-Israeli relations. His quick reply was: "It's very good……. Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)"

How would Pericles have dealt with the problems facing America after 9/11? As rationally as ever, no doubt
Had Pericles been George Bush on 9/11, he might well have reasoned as follows: ‘If my policy is to ensure that America is never attacked like this again (and it is), and if one of the root causes of the attack is the Palestinian problem (and it probably was), the rational policy is to fix it. Since Israel would not survive without us, it is to Israel that we must look for co-operation. If we do not get it, our support for Israel ends.’ True, had Bush argued like that and kept his word, one wonders what Mossad would have done to him; and what the implications would be for an Israel entirely devoid of American aid. But so what, if it ensured America’s security?

TBR News: Bush is in a crazy rage about all the resistance he has been facing. He believes very firmly that he is acting on the orders of God Almighty and that anyone, be it the head of the CIA or some rogue reporter, must be punished for daring to thwart the Will of God!
Note: After our recent dissection of Bush’s erratic and peculiar behavior in the White House, as reported by a member of the Press Pool, the ‘Madness of King George’ has gotten world-wide attention and a number of foreign papers are beginning to ask questions about the President’s sanity. Tbrnews, however, is never credited with bringing these facts to the public attention but, in the final analysis, all of us here are satisfied that the world is finally learning what happens when the lunatics run the asylum.

Neo-Cons Being Pushed Aside?

The Liberal Warriors And Airbrushers by John Pilger
At the height of his "popularity", fewer Americans voted for him than for any modern era president - 27 per cent of the electorate. No other post-1945 president, apart from George W Bush, presided over such a distortion in the economic life of the United States. Billions were taken from ordinary Americans and handed, in tax cuts, to the richest 5 per cent. The Reagan regime helped create the Taliban and supplied Saddam Hussein with chemical weapons. An anti-apartheid sanctions bill was passed in congress only after Reagan tried to veto it. Above all, it was Reagan's secret, illegal and murderous attacks on Central America, one of the world's poorest regions, for which he ought to be remembered.

'Convict Him Or Kill Him' The Night They Came To Kill Me by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
On Oct. 6, 1986, a virtual army of more than 400 armed personnel descended upon the town of Leesburg, Virginia, for a raid on the offices of EIR and its associates, and also deployed for another, darker mission. The premises at which I was residing at that time were surrounded by an armed force, while aircraft, armored vehicles, and other personnel waited for the order to move in shooting. Fortunately, the killing did not happen, because someone with higher authority than the Justice Department Criminal Division head William Weld, ordered the attack on me called off. The forces readied to move in on me, my wife, and a number of my associates, were pulled back in the morning.

Section A - What is Anarchism?
Anarchism is a political theory which aims to create anarchy, "the absence of a master, of a sovereign." [P-J Proudhon, What is Property , p. 264] In other words, anarchism is a political theory which aims to create a society within which individuals freely co-operate together as equals. As such anarchism opposes all forms of hierarchical control - be that control by the state or capitalist - as harmful to the individual and their individuality as well as unnecessary

LaRouche: Bankrupt Speculators With $25 Per Barrel Oil
In a declaration of war against the speculators who had pushed the price of crude oil above $42 a barrel, and are launching it towards $50-60, 2004 Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche called on May 28 for the price of oil to be set at a target price of $25-26 per barrel, by nation-to-nation contracts, in order to bankrupt and take away the power of the speculators, and restore order to the oil market.

"The Synarchist movement is an international movement born after the Versailles Treaty, which was financed and directed by certain financial groups belonging to the top international banking community.

TRIPOD II AND FEMA Lack of NORAD Response on 9/11 Explained
JUNE 5, 2004: 1900 PDT (FTW) -- The "Tripod II," joint New York City-Department of Justice biowarfare exercise, scheduled for Sept 12th 2001 at New York's Pier 29, and revealed in testimony by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the 9/11 Commission, may become one of the single most important disclosures of 9/11. I salute the work done by INN Global Free Press at http://inn.globalfreepress.com. But the "FEMA-Kennedy arrived in NY on Sept. 10th" myth is pure poison and absolutely incorrect. It originated from a CBS News interview conducted by Dan Rather shortly after the attacks. That interview, and the claim that it implies prior knowledge on the part of the Massachusetts FEMA Task Force, has been linked on multiple web sites and postings with Tripod and other 9/11 wargames. This erroneous story is dangerously useful for the cover-up, and it's time to give it the axe.

Reagan: "It wasn't a buildup, it was just a spend-up," Sprey said. Reagan gave money to defense contractors for weapons while funds for troops, maintenance and training languished. For example, not only did Reagan approve construction of the costly B-2 bomber, Sprey said, he also resurrected the B-1 bomber, a problem-plagued program that the Air Force didn't want and the Carter administration canceled.
Reagan's generosity also bred waste and excess in the defense industry, Gansler said, leading to scandals after which Congress scolded the military for spending hundreds of dollars on spare parts such as hammers and toilet seats. That led to the formation of the Packard Commission during Reagan's second term, a group led by computer executive David Packard on which Gansler served.

Reagan Didn't End the Cold War
Ronald Reagan's biggest crimes were the bloody military actions to suppress social and political change in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Afghanistan, but I'd like to deal here with the media's gushing about Reagan's supposed role in ending the cold war. In actuality, he prolonged it. Here is something I wrote for my book Killing Hope.

Spare me the heapings of praise for Ronald Reagan. He was one of the worst presidents we've ever had.
Reagan was responsible for killing tens of thousands of innocent people in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Honduras as he waged illegal wars and funded brutal militaries. The truth commission of El Salvador investigated the murders of 75,000 people during the civil war in the 1980s, and it found that the Salvadoran military, or death squads connected to the military, had committed the bulk of those crimes. At the time, Bush was lavishing hundreds of millions of dollars on the Salvadoran government, and his CIA was working with the death squads.

NYC: STARBUCKS WORKERS GO UNION WITH THE IWW
New York, NY- The Starbucks Baristas Union and community members across the country have condemned repeated attempts by the company to deny workers a fair vote on the Union. While paying lip-service to respecting the choice of employees, Starbucks has deployed a variety of crude tactics in an effort to defeat the IWW IU/660, which would be the first union certified in the United States at the mammoth chain. Supporters around the country and internationally are contacting Starbucks demanding they live up to their rhetoric. If Starbucks really is a bastion of worker benefits, what is Chairman Howard Schultz, who raked in over $17 million last year, so scared of? The truth is Starbucks, with its poverty wages and rampant repetitive-stress dangers, resembles a sweatshop more than it does a decent place to work.

"Right now, about the only thing known for certain is that the accused, the slain children and their mothers were all living in the United States illegally," writes the Washington Times' editors.

Mark Parry in 2002 by crashing into his patrol car. There also is Jose Alvarado, who molested two boys in Montgomery County. He served 18 months in jail after molesting a boy and was deported to El Salvador in 1998. Then, he illegally re-entered the United States and made his way to the Rockville area, where he molested another child last year."

''Was Reagan responsible for the Soviet Union's downfall?''
George F. Kennan agrees. The former U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union, and father of the theory of "containment" of the same country, asserts that "the suggestion that any United States administration had the power to influence decisively the course of a tremendous domestic political upheaval in another great country on another side of the globe is simply childish." He contends that the extreme militarization of American policy strengthened hard-liners in the Soviet Union.

Ronald Reagan was a conman. Reagan was a coward. Reagan was a killer.  

Well, my friends, you can rest easier tonight: the Rat is dead.

Killer, coward, conman. Ronald Reagan, good-bye and good riddance.

The New York Times today, in its canned obit, wrote that Reagan projected, "faith in small town America" and "old-time values." "Values" my ass. It was union busting and a declaration of war on the poor and anyone who couldn't buy designer dresses. It was the New Meanness, bringing starvation back to America so that every millionaire could get another million.
Reagan, with that film-fantasy tough-guy con in front of cameras, went begging like a coward cockroach to Khomeini pleading on bended knee for the release of our hostages.

Let me just say from the outset that the Federal Reserve has confirmed our Stock Market Crash forecast by raising the Money Supply (M-3) by crisis proportions, up another 46.8 billion this past week. What awful calamity do they see? Something is up. This is unprecedented, unheard-of pre-catastrophe M-3 expansion. M-3 is up an amount that we've never seen before without a crisis - $155 billion over the past 4 weeks, a $2.0 trillion annualized pace, a 22.2 percent annualized rate of growth!!! There must be a crisis of historic proportions coming, and the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States is making sure that there is enough liquidity in place to protect our nation's fragile financial system. The amazing thing is, the Fed's actions mean they know what is about to happen. They are aware of a terrible, horrific imminent event. What could it be?
