Of Swallows and Ravens: Israeli Sexpionage : The McGreevey, Condit and Clinton Affairs
The current Governor James McGreevey homosexual scandal is actually the result of yet another Israeli sexpionage operation targeting "sexually loose" Democratic Party government officials. Two other recent operations, that should be fresh in the memories of the American people, are the Congressman Gary Condit and the President Bill Clinton Affairs.

In the parlance of the shadowy underworld of international espionage, the use of "sex" by foreign spies to obtain information or concessions from government officials is called "sexpionage". The sexual seduction of high level government officials by foreign spies is usually of the illicit category which provides foreign operatives the added advantage of being able to better bribe the targeted victims which may be married with children. The operation may involve compromising the government officials through the use of professional prostitutes, underage girls (or boys) or by providing homosexual lovers to not yet "out-of-the-closet" targets, as was the case with Governor James McGreevey of New Jersey.
Sexpionage has a very long history.One of the most notorious cases was that of a Dutch spy known as Mata Hari. The seductress was a "nude dancer" who operated as a double agent for both the French and German armies during World War I. The British Security Service claim that Mata Hari was a Jewess who's real name was Margaretha Geertruida Zelle. She was executed in 1917 by a French firing squad.
A more recent "sexpionage" case occurred in 1963 in Great Britain. The scandal brought the entire Harold McMillan government down. The case involved the Secretary of State for War, John Dennis Profumo. Profumo, a Tory and a married man, was compromised by an illicit affair with a London cabaret showgirl by the name of Christine Keeler. The problem was that Christine Keeler was also sleeping with Eugene Ivanov, a naval attache at the Soviet Embassy. It was widely claimed, at the time, that Keeler was passing British defense secrets, obtained from Profumo, to the Soviets.
Today, after the "Cold War against the Soviets" and the beginning of the "War of Civilizations against Islam", Israeli covert sexpionage operations are on the increase in the USA and around the globe. In fact, a significant number of ex-Soviet sexpionage agents of Jewish descent, who once worked for the KGB and the Stasi, have emigrated to Israel. They now work for the Zionist government. These sexpionage agents were well trained in special Soviet spy schools, a practice that continues to this day in Israel. A secret training ground for many of these Zionist sexpionage agents is the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa. Among the papers in the archives of the Israel Institute of Technology is one authored by Golan Cipel, Governor McGreevey's lover, titled "Shabtai Shavit Identified as Outgoing Mossad Chief".
In the parlance of the Israeli intelligence services, female sexpionage agents are called "Swallows" and males who are trained to compromise women or other men are called "Ravens." Under this nomenclature, the Israeli who was former Chief of Homeland Security for New Jersey, Golan Cipel, can be properly called a "Raven", and the Jewesses Chandra Levy and Monica Lewinsky, which I will discuss later, can be called "Swallows".
Zionist Israel places great importance in its "symbiotic" relationship with the USA. In fact, the State of Israel would be unable to exist without the vast amounts of aid, both military and social welfare, that is sent yearly to prop up the Zionist government. This total amount is estimated to be more than 5 Billion dollars per year. In addition, Israel survives and depends on critical technology transfersthat are obtained both through cooperation and covertly. For example, Israel now possess thermonuclear bombs and missiles, thanks to an American Jew, Jonathan Pollard, who stole the "nuclear secrets" while working as a US Naval Analyst. Pollard, it was admitted by the Israeli government, was a MOSSAD spy. He is presently doing a life term in a US Federal Prison for his crime.
The success and effectiveness of the Israel/USA symbiotic relationship depends on many factors. One is massive propaganda through the US based Zionist press that keeps the American people in a constant stupor about certain political and economic realities. Another is the near total subserviency of corrupt politicians, especially of the Democratic Party, who do not speak up because they are on the take. Another is the massive infiltration into government of what are nothing less than Israeli agents. Israeli agents in the Pentagon, for example, has caused the USA dearly in terms of the costs of the "War on Iraq" and in terms of its "hated image" around the world.
Lastly, a factor that is very important for Israel in keeping a profitable symbiotic relationships with the USA is effective sexpionage. Sexpionage is so important to Israel, that it has opened an office for this purpose right smack in the center of US political power -- Washington D.C. The office fronts as a post 911 anti-terrorism institute and is located at 3811 N. Fairfax Drive, Suite 720 Arlington, VA 22203. The Chief of the office is non other that the immediate former Director of the Israeli MOSSAD, Shabtai Shavit.
The current scandal in New Jersey concerning the "Raven" Golan Cipel is a classic example of an Israeli sexpionage operation. James McGreevey, a Catholic, was a rising Democratic Party politico when he was introduced, about four years ago, to Golan Cipel while on a "Jewish Junket" to the Tel Aviv suburb of Rishon Le-Zion. Cipel had been conveniently placed on the staff of the Mayor of Rishon Le-Zion by the MOSSAD, which has its headquarters in Tel Aviv, for this very purpose. The MOSSAD keeps extensive "dossiers" on a large number of US politicians and McGreevy, who the MOSSAD probably already knew was a sodomite, had been targeted.
The American people would be very surprised at the huge number of US politicians who are taken, all expenses paid, to Israel for political indoctrination. One of these Democratic Party politicos is Antonio Villargairosa (aka Tony Villar) whom we call the "Chicano Manjewrian Candidate". Tony is running for mayor of Los Angeles for the second time.
During the period between meeting James McGreevey and the revelation of the scandal, Golan Cipel moved from assignment to assignment with the ease that only an Israeli sexpionage operative could have. According to official documents, Cipel worked for the Israeli Parliament, the Israeli Embassy in New York, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and ultimately as Chief of Homeland Security for the US State of New Jersey at a salary of $110,000 per year, even though he was an Israeli illegal alien.
The allegations by Cipel of "sexual harassment" by Governor McGreevey is only a ruse to cover up the real purpose of the operation. The allegation by Cipel that he was sexually assaulted by the governor "twenty times" is preposterous and only the dumbest Americans will believe it. In fact, Golan Cipel allowed the governor to buy him an apartment a mere few blocks from the condominium where McGreevey lived with his so called wife. The scandal involves much more than just the outing of a "queer governor"!We may never know how much damage to US interests this Israeli sexpionage operation has or will cost the country and the American people.
Another recent sexpionage operation was that involving the now ousted Congressman from California Gary Condit and the Jewish sexpionage agent Chandra Levy. This operation, however, went terribly wrong resulting in the disappearance of the 24 year government intern Chandra Levy on April 30, 2001. Levy remains were found 13 months later in a park in Northwest Washington D.C. and not far from the home of than Democratic Party Congressman Gary Condit. The official cause of death was ruled "a homicide" though no one was ever charged or prosecuted for the murder.
The target in this sexpionage operation was the married Gary Condit, who wasa senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. As member of the this committee, Condit was privy to highly classified information of much interest to Zionist Israel. The MOSSAD leaned on their "sleeper and sexpionage agent" Chandra Levy to obtain the secret US government information that the Israeli government needed. The MOSSAD arranged for Chandra Levy, then a US government intern, to meet Congressman Condit. Soon, the married Condit was having a sexual affair with the voluptuous 24 year old Chandra Levy.
Whatever classified information Levy was able to obtain, on her "sexpionage mission", was at the cost of her life. One day before she was to return to California, she disappeared without a trace. The Washington D.C. police searched Congressman Condit's apartment for clues to no avail. Thirteen months later the "skull and bones" of Chandra Levy were found at Washington's Rock Creek Park even though the park had been repeatedly searched during the early phases of the investigation.
Everyone reading this report should be acquainted with the President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky affair. This has been called "The Mother of all Sexpionage Scandals" because it almost toppled a US presidency. Generally less known is the fact that Monica Lewinsky was actually a "sexpionage agent" working on behalf of the Israeli government. She was, and probably still is, what the MOSSAD calls a "Swallow".
It is believed that Lewinsky's primary mission was to sexually compromise Bill Clinton in order to bribe him to release the Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.The timing and unfolding of the "White House Sex Scandal" coincided with the efforts and meetings by the then Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu with President Bill Clinton in the White House.
The mission for Israel failed but it ended giving the Zionist state some peripheral benefits. In an effort by Clinton to rid himself of the "Swallow", he transferred her to the Pentagon with the highest "security clearance" possible and which is only afforded to top brass and a few high level government officials. Soon Monica Lewinsky was cavorting with Admirals and Generals and became pregnant. She says she aborted the baby.
No one knows what Pentagon secrets Lewinsky was able to pass on to the Zionists, but perhaps Paul Wolfowitz' great success in involving the USA in the War against Iraq may be the results of Monica Lewinsky's efforts on behalf of Israel. Sexpionage pays and it is paying big for Israel.
As you hear the spin, by the Zionist press, given to the current sexpionage scandal involving "The Queer Governor of New Jersey", hopefully this report will provide just the right facts to enable you to see clearly through all their lies.

Place That Call
By William Thomas
Though intended for renovations, Chris Anderson would like all visitors to deposit their cellular phones in the cement mixer by his front door. This sounds excessive - until you step into Anderson s orchard, where the pegged needle of a shrieking electromagnetic radiation (EMR) meter placed beside a connected cell phone still shows significant exposure 100 feet away.
Much to the chagrin of this certified EMR-mitigation specialist, every day some 300 million cell phone users are reaching out and touching someone you love. Yourself, and anyone else within range of the microwaves emitted by your phone.
Mesmerized by magical gadgets, we have yet to count the costs of miniature radio transmitters that are transforming Marconi s invention into new possibilities for portable personal pollution. As entire nations reach for pocket communicators, the explosively emergent $40 billion a year mobile phone industry is poised to deliver a Wireless Revolution that over the next five years is expected to double the one billion people connected by telephone lines over the past century.
Silicon sensors are already calling to each other. Soon, countless communicating microchips embedded in everything from bumpers to brooms will be sending streams of encoded electrical energy through glass, steel, concrete, bone and flesh.
Exquisitely sensitive to subtle electromagnetic harmonies, human brains and bodies as intricate as galaxies depend on tiny electrical impulses to conduct complex life-processes -including the ability to read, recall and respond to these words. Acting as antennas, our anatomies just as easily tune into spurious signals from radio and microwave transmissions. Blake Levitt, author of Electromagnetic Fields, says that when it comes to cell phones, a worse frequency could not have been chosen for the human anatomy.
As cell phones conquer consumer minds and markets, researcher Carol Anne Patton notes that the brain reaches peak absorption in the UHF bands, right where cellular telecommunications operate. British military scientists have discovered that cell phone transmissions disrupt the brain sites for memory and learning, causing forgetfulness and sudden confusion. Other studies show that electromagnetic signals from cellular phones reduce the ability to concentrate, calculate and coordinate complicated activities such as driving a car. Startled by $4 billion a year in extra claims among cell phone-wielding drivers, North American insurers did a double-take that found simply juggling cell phones is not causing a 600% increase in accidents.'
Hands-free mobile speaker-phones cause even more crashes because they typically emit 10 times more brainwave interference than handheld units.
For all drivers dialing out, University of Toronto investigators report that the heightened probability of cracking up your car persists for up to 15-minutes after completing a call. That s comparable to the risk of crashing while driving dead drunk exclaims Dr. Chris Runball, chairman of the B.C. Medical Association s emergency medical services committee. Reeling from dial-a-collision costs, the government of British Columbia may join England, Spain, Israel, Switzerland and Brazil in banning the use of cell phones by drivers.
In New Zealand, cell phone towers are prohibited on school property because of possible health effects, but Health Canada regulations ignore the hidden hazards of cell-wrenching cell phones, which send pulsed signals through the skull in a process one expert likens to jackhammers on the brain.
One of a handful of licensed electricians who understand electromagnetic fields well enough to eliminate them from household wiring, McGinnis has been testing EMFs and collaborating with fellow testers and researchers for nearly a decade. In Victoria, where he has helped residents defeat six cell phone towers, there was dancing in the streets after Microcell Connexions withdrew its application to erect a microwave transmission tower against the Wishart Elementary School fence in the spring of 1998.
The cell phone's second-hand microwave and radio-frequency (RF) pollution pose invisible but significant risks to bystanders - particularly children riding in cars that transmit amplified cell phone signals through their steel structure. Reporting the conclusions of a 12-person British study team, scientist Sir William Stewart told London s Financial Times that children may be more vulnerable because of their developing nervous system, the greater absorption of energy in the tissues of the head and a longer lifetime of exposure.
Roger Coghill became a long-standing advocate for health warnings to be affixed to mobile phones after this biologist found that cell phone transmissions damage the ability of white blood cells to ward off infectious disease by disrupting the immune system s electromagnetic communications.
Dr. Neil Cherry has measured accelerated aging, increased cell death and cancers caused by radio frequency microwaves from cell phones and their relay towers. With the brain s electro-chemical communications repeatedly zapped by lightning-like cell phone pulses, this Ph.D. biophysicist warns that headaches, fatigue, lethargy, nausea, dizziness, depression, arteriosclerosis and even Alzheimer s can result from frequent or prolonged calls.
There is also a higher incidence of cardiac problems, Cherry comments, in terms of the timing function in hearts. You get more heart attacks and more heart disease, it has now been shown in many studies.
The biophysicist from Lincoln University in Christ Church, New Zealand has also found that cell phones can murderously modify moods. In brains and bodies seriously derailed by tiny imbalances in trace minerals and hormones, depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence can result when calcium and serotonin levels are disrupted by cell phone transmissions.
In 1995, mobile phone sales in North America exceeded the birth rate. Hired by the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association to condone cell phones, public health scientist George Carlo found that tumors on the outside of the brain are more than doubled among cell phone callers - particularly on the right side of the head where cell phones are usually held. Carlo told ABC s 20/20 that cell phone causes genetic damage that leads to cancer.
Warning of the potential for a global health disaster, ABC recommended prudent avoidance of cell phones after finding that every cell phone they lab-tested exceeded the Federal Communication Commission s standards for EMF absorption rates. EMF researcher Dave Ashton cautioned 20/20 viewers that because cell phones constantly search for the nearest repeating tower, long-term damage comes from cell phones in the stand-by mode. cell phone shields and headsets cannot adequately address these problems, Ashton added.
Dr. Carlo later told London s Express newspaper that cell phones cause genetic damage following a dose-response curve. That is, the more a person uses a cell phone, the more cellular destruction and health risks they incur. Cell phone-confused cells can go crazy, Carlo cautioned. Experiments on captive animals show that this cumulative DNA damage is passed on to succeeding generations.
Addicted as we are to a culture of convenience, we forget how inconvenient it is to contract cancer. An Adelaide Hospital study confirmed Carlo s conclusions after finding B-cell lymphomas doubled in mice within 18 months of one-hour daily exposure to power densities experienced by a cell phone user. -B-cell lymphomas are implicated in 85% of all cancers.
Ready Or Not
As magazine-size cellular relay antennas hidden in church steeples and rooflines keep popping up just about everywhere, more and more communities are declaring their airspace a No Fry Zone. But in Canada, where cell phone towers come under federal jurisdiction, municipalities are only advisers to a process in which no permits are required to erect transmitter towers deemed necessary for national security.
Many more lives are involuntarily imperiled by non-emergency calls. Pat Irwin was working in a Colwood health food store when she noticed a truck unloading metal framework. The next morning, a new cell phone tower was ready to add its emissions to another BC Tel tower already operating down the street. There had been no announcement, no public hearings - just a quiet notification to the municipality that a tower was going up, literally overnight.
The intruder radiated for a month when Irwin felt her immunity dropping. She wondered if other changes in her energy and menstrual cycle were not from the moon or something that I ate.
Irwin also seemed more irritable after her central nervous switchboard began receiving round-the-clock cell phone calls. With cellular relay towers in Kansas and Oklahoma being shut down because they interfered with passing aircraft, Irwin sensed how the same transmissions plucked her own electrical circuitry, inflicting a chronic edginess that twangs human nerves. Sleep disorders, she learned, are common among people exposed to high levels of electromagnetic pollution.
After several other women in the same business centre reported similar symptoms, Irwin quit her job. I saw it as something that was there to stay and I d be daily exposed to it over a long period of time, she told Alive. All this stuff is what were playing with on a daily basis.
There is nothing safe about the new 1.9 gigahertz broadcasting frequency. Much like a boxer taking repeated blows to the head, rapidly pulsing cell phones signal permanent brain damage. A study by Dr. Peter Franch found unequivocally that cells are permanently damaged by cellular phone frequencies. This cellular damage, Franch noted, is maximized at low dosage - and inherited unchanged, from generation to generation.
Katharina Gustavss, a certified Building Biology consultant with 25 years experience, explains that CDMA s 217 Hz spikes are very close to the frequencies of human cell membranes. Gustavss accompanied a Microcell technician to the Colwood microwave relay tower Irwin and others had complained about. When he waved a spectrum analyzer, Gustavss checked the display and saw pretty scary energy spikes.
"What's that?", she asked the tech. I've never seen that before, he told her. It turned out that this cell phone tower tester only set his meter to an averaging mode. Switching to real time froze the readings at scary maximum output levels.
How dangerous are cell phones? The risk is extremely high, declares Dr. Cherry. There are 66 epidemiological studies showing that electromagnetic radiation across the spectrum increase brain tumors in human populations."
Cherry says that because cancer takes a decade to develop, it will be another 10 years before mobiles manifest a big bonanza in brain tumors. But he adds, we re already seeing acute effects that are noticed within minutes of using a cell phone.
After two minutes conversation, a cell phone s digitized impulses disable the safety barrier that isolates the brain from destructive proteins and poisons in the blood. Professor Leif Salford, the neurologist who carried out the research for this finding, informed the Daily Mail: It seems that molecules such as proteins and toxins can pass out of the blood, while the phone is switched on, and enter the brain. We need to bear in mind diseases such as MS and Alzheimer s which are linked to proteins being found in the brain.
Dancing With The Telecomonster
If you must pack a cell phone, treat it like a loaded pistol. Keep it turned off. Don t carry it near ovaries, testicles, or the heart. For partial protection, buy an antenna shield. Limit calls to one-minute, six to 10 minutes a month. Never fire off a cell phone with children anywhere in sight.
When it comes to cells, consciousness and cell phones, every call is collect. How can convenience count more than cancer? What is gained by being in constant contact with disembodied voices, while being out of touch with the friends and neighbours immediately around us? Are we comfortable having our location continually traced by monitoring authorities?
Unless we start voting with our wallets, consumer complacency could prove as species-limiting as corporate cynicism. Microwave frequencies are the same as those used in radar and your microwave oven, says Florida cell phone tower opponent Joe Chwick. You wouldn't think of sticking your head in the oven, but there is no hesitation to putting the cell phone to your ear
Having somehow survived three-million years of evolution without them, many contemporary hominids claim they cannot live without them. But -can exquisitely sensitive electromagnetic beings live with cell phones -and the towers their signals ride in on? Like polyethylene food and water containers, plastic cookers and coffee-makers, microwave ovens and petroleum powered vehicles, cell phones could be one of those brilliantly beguiling inventions we have to let go. Would hanging up on such an intrusive and hazardous addiction be so terrible?
On Jan. 1, 2001 I cancelled my cell phone service

For a fee, an electrical engineer has about five different types of meters, including very effective gaussmeters, to measure these fields. The most expensive meters have the most accurate measurements. These can cost thousands of dollars, so it is best to hire an engineer who has them already.
We returned our new laptop*, as the field with 18" of the screen was horrendous. The fields from satellites/cell phones and satellites/computers have been causing documented brain tumors for 20 years.
Laptops fields can be measured; there's a significant difference between models.
Don't ever stick your face within 10 inches of the screen for longer than a couple minutes, the field does start to substantially diminish about 20 inches from the screen on some models - for others, the field is a thick, heavy, and three feet deep of detrimental EMF, so that would drape your head and chest in the field.

The aptness of Russia for a launch of "World Without Waves"
We and many scientists believe digital phones are far more dangerous than analog phones because the signals are pulsed at much higher mirowave frequencies and laboratory studies have shown that pulsed radiation is more damaging to biological tissue than steady state radiation (Analog). as found with the Dr. Henry Lai reports of DNA single and double strand breaks, at lower then most cell phone power levels, using the RF frequencies of newer digital cell phones. The Lai Studies results were or are repeatable as done in DNA.
eTerror Hits Jew Watch

DOS attack is one of Internet's largest ever
by Frank Weltner
St. Louis, Missouri, July 26, 2004 - The research website jewwatch.com was recently the victim of one of the largest-scale eTerror attacks in Internet history.
A massive denial of service attack temporarily shut down the online database of information about world Jewry, along with much of AOL Time Warner Cable within the surrounding regional service area. The giant cable company was forced to temporarily remove the IP addresses of www.jewwatch.com in order to restore normal service levels to its millions of users.
The ISP for Jew Watch found all of its services paralyzed, causing its hundreds of corporate customer servers--many of them housing 1,000 or more websites per server--to lose access to the Internet due to the constant pounding of service connections addressing the several Jew Watch IP addresses. Traffic to all 250+ servers slowed to a trickle, then to nothing.
Jew Watch, according to owner Frank Weltner, was unplugged, and the entire system's 250+ servers were restarted in order to restore service to the ISPâ€™s major customers. The Jew Watch server remained unplugged for almost an entire day to ensure that the attack against the site had ended.
In addition, AOL Time Warner grounded Jew Watchâ€™s IP addresses for more than 24 hours in order to ensure that the attack, which was came from hundreds of major University and corporate computers, had subsided.
At the time of the failure of AOL Time Warnerâ€™s cable lines, more than 350 megabits of DOS signals were hitting its congested and rapidly failing Gordian knot of routers, fiberoptics, and other Internet connecting devices as they entered the tangled geographical area of the Jew Watch domain. This eTerror punch was equivalent to a minimum of 150 T1 super-fast Internet connections meant for up to 10,000 customers, each at maximum burst. According to two engineers at the Jew Watch ISP Headquarters, the real number of T1 connections aimed at www.jewwatch.com may have been in the thousands.
After remaining offline for approximately 22 hours to ensure that the attack had ended, the IP addresses were ungrounded by AOL Time Warner and the connections to the Internet's most popular news and research site for information on world Jewry was re-established. Jew Watchâ€™s Internet connection was restored at approximately 4:15PM on Tuesday, July 27, 2004.

This site provides a forum for grassroots media education and activism. It's a place for media activists to discuss issues and ideas, as well as to network and find resources. The site uses open-source technology, so come in, contribute, and help us build your site!!
mef.tvis a new activist project of theMedia Education Foundation (MEF), anonprofit, public interest organization dedicated to media literacy and education. mef.tv is a website, a virtual space, where activists across the spectrum of social change movements can come together around the issues of media education and reform. The forums on this site are designed to allow individuals to engage with each other and build an important network.
In addition, mef.tv is an effort to meet the requests of activists to have access to select MEF videos. Until now, MEF videos have primarily been distributed to institutions: colleges/universities; high schools; nonprofit agencies; and church groups. However, in the past decade there has been an exponential rise in media activism that has come in response to deregulatory legislation and the resulting conglomerisation and homogenisation of the mass media system. Concerned citizens are taking notice as the promise of a truly diverse and democratic media is sacrificed to the commercial interests of the handful of corporate empires now in control of the public airwaves.
MEF grew out of a battle in 1991 between University of Massachusetts-Amherst Communication professor Sut Jhally and media giant MTV over his right to use music video images to encourage his students to think critically about media representations of women. A decade and forty documentaries later, MEF continues to believe that media education is the best way to check the power of media conglomerates to shape our understanding of the world and ourselves.
MEF's mission is: to translate the latest cutting-edge research and expertise into visually compelling and accessible narratives, to inspire democratic debate about our media system, and to show how knowledge is a prerequisite to progressive social change. mef.tv, as a project of MEF, holds the same mission â€“ with the specific aim of providing a broad and accessible forum for grassroots media activism
Some Dare Call It Treason - Wake Up America!
By Dr. Robert Bowman, USAF Ret.
IÂ am a member of Veterans For Peace, an organization of thousands of combat veterans. All of us have put our life on the line for this country. Most of us opposed the recent invasion of Iraq. We also opposed the first Gulf War, and the sanctions that followed. We opposed the slaughter of fleeing Iraqis on the Road to Basra. We opposed the use of Depleted Uranium munitions. And we opposed the lies upon which the first Gulf War was based. But there was one good thing about that first Gulf War. It ended. And without a wholesale invasion of Iraq. Why?
Here's what the first President Bush wrote about that in his memoirs:
Trying to eliminate Saddam would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible. We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq. There was no viable exit strategy we could see, violating another of our principles. Furthermore, we had been self-consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-Cold War world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the United Nations mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression that we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land.
My brothers and sisters, it is just too darn bad his son can't read!
I've been severely criticized for speaking out in opposition to this war. So have you, probably. We're told that we're aiding and abetting the enemy. We're told that we should support the president no matter what. We're told that patriotism demands that we support the war. They say that we're abusing the freedoms that our troops are in the Middle East defending. They say we should be ashamed to be protesting while the troops are in the desert protecting our right to do so.
Well IÂ say, Hogwash!
IÂ feel an affinity for the troops over there in Iraq. They are my comrades in arms. IÂ admire their sense of honor and sacrifice. IÂ understand why some of them believe they should be there. They have neither the experience nor the wisdom to see past the lies they have been told. The truth is, they are not over there protecting our freedoms. Our freedoms are not under attack from Saddam Hussein or the remnants of his Baathist party. Our freedoms are under attack by John Ashcroft. They are threatened by John Poindexter. They are trampled by Donald Rumsfeld. They are disdained by Dick Cheney. And they are not even understood by George W. Bush. The battle to preserve our freedoms is not taking place in Baghdad and Tikrit. It is taking place in Central Park in New York City, in Lafayette Park in Washington DC, in Ghirardelli Park in San Francisco, and in River Front Park in Melbourne, Florida. The front lines go right down USÂ 1 and up New Haven Avenue.
It is we, here at home, who are the foot soldiers battling to preserve our cherished freedoms by exercising them, in spite of opposition and ridicule. It is we who protect our civil rights through speaking out. We are the Minutemen sounding the alarm against tyranny. We are upholding the spirit of the American Revolution. We are preserving the freedoms that the troops in the desert have a right to come back to. The troops getting shot at in Iraq are not protecting us. We are protecting them, and their honor and their freedoms. We have just completed a forced march through hostile territory to defend their freedoms and ours, and the ideals America was founded on. We are protecting this nation by speaking truth to power. Let us do it loudly and fearlessly and courageously and joyfully, for we are the true patriots!
Here is the truth that we proclaim. This war has nothing to do with national security or freedom or democracy or human rights or protecting our allies or weapons of mass destruction or defeating terrorism or disarming Iraq. It has to do with money. It has to do with oil. And it has to do with raw imperial power. It is based on a pack of lies. And it is wrong. Those who forced this war on an unwilling world are guilty of flagrantly violating the U.S. Constitution, the UN Charter, and international law. What they have done is illegal, immoral, unconstitutional and TREASON.
It's been said that somewhere in Texas there is a village looking for their idiot. Now that may be funny, but it misses the point. George W. Bush is not an imbecile. He is a TRAITOR.
Before this war started, we knew it would fracture NATO, split the United Nations, separate us from our allies, and destroy the great nation we inherited from our fathers who died in World War II. And it has. We knew it would make our beloved country feared and hated, an outcast from the world community, a pariah among the peoples, and the number one rogue nation on earth. And it has. It has done so based on a pack of lies. My sisters and brothers, that is not stupidity. That is TREASON.
We knew this sadistic corporate war would incense the Arab world, provide thousands of new Osama bin Ladens, and enormously increase the terrorist threat. And it has. We knew it would further endanger the American people and destroy our national security. And it has. That is not stupidity, it is TREASON.
The cabal of neoconservatives at PNAC who planned this war (Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Libby, Perle, Jeb Bush) even before W became president, knew the American people would not stand for it unless there was a new Pearl Harbor. 9/11 supplied that. Our government was warned. They were warned by the Clinton Administration. They were warned by 11 other countries. And they were specifically warned by an FBI agent that one of them was planning on flying a hijacked airliner into the World Trade Center.
They not only ignored the warnings, they made sure no fighter jets were scrambled to stop it. If they had just done nothing, and allowed normal procedures to be followed, the Twin Towers would still be standing and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive. This is not stupidity, it is TREASON.
As a combat veteran, IÂ will not stand idly by and watch our security destroyed by a president who went AWOL rather than fight in Vietnam. Honor requires that IÂ call this by its right name. It is TREASON.
As one who has devoted his life to the security of this country, IÂ will not stand by and watch an appointed president send our sons and daughters around the world to kill Arabs for the oil companies without calling it by its right name. It is TREASON.
IÂ joined the Air Force to protect our borders and our people, not the financial interests of Folgers, Chiquita Banana, and Exxon. We've had enough corporate wars. No more Iraqs. No more El Salvadors. No more Kosovos. No more Colombias. These are not isolated incidents of stupidity. They are part of a long, bloody history of foreign policy being conducted for the financial benefit of the wealthy few. It is a new colonialism. It violates our Constitution. It endangers our people. And it is TREASON.
As a pilot who flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam, IÂ can tell you that the best thing our government can do for its combat veterans is to quit making more of them. Peace is patriotic; a preemptive war is immoral, illegal, unconstitutional, a war crime, and TREASON. IÂ swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. That includes a renegade president. Wake up, America!
It is time for George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and the whole oil mafia to be removed from office and indicted for TREASON.
We are the people. We are sovereign. We are the patriots. The whole world is with us. Never allow anyone to intimidate you into silence. Wake up, America! It's time to speak truth to power. God bless America, and God save us from the traitors in our government.
