If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

How we got it so wrong in Iraq
As I testified before both panels, looking for such a direct link was likely to prove futile. The issue, I noted, was much more complicated, involving years of advocacy in both the United States and Great Britain for regime change in Baghdad that had permeated all levels of government, corrupting formulation of sound policy with a "group think" conclusion that Saddam Hussein was a threat. Anything that could facilitate his removal became accepted, regardless of its veracity.
More on the deception
The era of strategic deception
No way. The Iraq weapons fiasco was absolutely not caused by an "intelligence failure," as the White House and the recent Senate whitewash claim.
U.S. national security and CIA were corrupted and blinded by extremist ideology, cowardice, and careerism.
Nor was everyone wrong about Iraq.
Scores of Mideast professionals, this writer included, insisted from Day 1 that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction, posed no threat to the U.S., and had no link to al-Qaida.
In other words, they already had their minds made up to go to war they just needed a credible excuse for the sheeple to blindly believe in. And those who disagreed were not allowed to put in their two-cents in the mainstream media and were treated like crazy people and terrorist sympathizers. - LH

Regime change in Iran now in Bush's sights
PRESIDENT George Bush has promised that if re-elected in November he will make regime change in Iran his new target.
Another part of the plan exposed
PM admits graves claim 'untrue'
Downing Street has admitted to The Observer that repeated claims by Tony Blair that '400,000 bodies had been found in Iraqi mass graves' is untrue, and only about 5,000 corpses have so far been uncovered
That's pretty far off. I mean I could understand a couple thousand here of there but to miss by 395,000? Arthur Anderson must have been doing the counting on that one. So really, why do you think this happened? I say that in the run up to war and after the occupation started they needed to turn Saddam into the worst person ever to walk the face of the earth. He had obviously killed thousands, isn't that bad enough. Why did they have to try and make him seem worse than he really was? - LH
Here is a Bush quote from Friday:
July 16, 2004Now if some guy was in front of a judge and said that everyone would call him crazy.
"I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn't do my job."
-- President Bush, quoted in the Lancaster New Era, during a private meeting with an Amish group.
