Kreepy Kerry


John Kerry is directly responsible for the false arrest and electrical torture of Andrew Meyer by reason of his refusal to answer a question for decades, and the circumstance he created by his on-going fraud. Kerry is as responsible as if he’d wielded the Taser himself. Had Mr. Kerry ever answered the question posed by Mr. Meyer, the question posed so many times before over the years, and never answered, Mr. Meyer would not have needed to expose John Kerry as the conspiring, lying piece of garbage he so clearly is.

The people in Kerry’s audience were doubtless screened before hand with the intent of preventing such an exposure. That they would applaud such an assault on a genuine patriot asking what Kerry is hiding, exposes them as well; mindless, bleating sheep of the so-called “mainstream” or “middle of the road”. There is no “middle of the road”, only the truth, and God damned lies. The audience attending Kerry’s dog and pony show are guilty; Not one stood up and fought with the uniformed assailants. Instead, they sat and watched as a man was assaulted for asking for the truth. Some of them clapped.

The media too are shilling for Johnny boy: “ Tasered because he asked about impeachment?” I don’t think so. Funny how few of the reports mention his pointed question regarding Skull and Bones. Even funnier how so many videos of the incident have actually had the Skull and Bones question removed.

@ OP ED

Imagine anyone wanting Skull&Bones removed from a major violation of free speech, HMMMMM.

Sure nice that others with more position noticed this obvious manipulation of the media to slant reporting in such a way as to blame the messenger for bringing the message.

Right now all watchers of this blog should go rent the DVD "V for Vendetta" and find out in the Orwellian flick how manipulation of the media can further the neofascist cause to the point of negating any attempted prying open of the lid on the Pandora's Box revealing the soft fascist underbelly contained therein. Deception and manipulation are the cornerstone.

Defeat WILL come to the neofascists eventually, but unfortunately not soon enough to prevent more misery.

Thanks to cowards like kerry.

AMY GOODMAN: I wanted to go back to Iraq and ask you about, well, a piece by Jim Steele and Don Barlett that came out in Vanity Fair, where they’re talking about the billions lost in Iraq. And they begin their piece by saying, “Between April 2003 and June 2004, [$12 billion] in US currency -- much of it belonging to the Iraqi people -- was shipped from the Federal Reserve to Baghdad, where it was dispensed by the Coalition Provisional Authority. Some of the cash went to pay for projects and keep ministries afloat, but, incredibly, at least $9 billion has gone missing, unaccounted for, in a frenzy of mismanagement and greed.”

Alan Greenspan, when you were head of the Federal Reserve, how much knowledge do you have of this? Did you investigate this? And did you investigate this? Were you aware of this at the time?

ALAN GREENSPAN: Well, let me say that what we were involved in was essentially endeavoring to create a viable currency for the central bank of Iraq. And what we did do was -- I think very successfully -- create what is a viable financial system, even under the circumstances that currently exist. There was, as far as I can judge, a huge drain of the resources into areas which nobody to this day can understand or follow. It had nothing to do with the central bank. In our relationships with them, we were merely acting as an intermediary to assist them in creating a system, which they now have, which is working reasonably well, despite all of the problems that are going on. The issue which you are referring to had nothing to do with the Federal Reserve in any of our relationships with the central bank.

AMY GOODMAN: Well, they are talking about, in one day, for example, the East Rutherford operation center of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, 100 Orchard Street in East Rutherford, a tractor-trailer truck pulling up, and though accustomed to receiving and shipping large quantities of cash, the vault had never before processed a single order of this magnitude: $2.4 billion in $100 bills. But ultimately, again, $9 billion of $12 billion gone missing in Iraq.

ALAN GREENSPAN: I am not familiar with any such evidence. And it was certainly not brought to my attention. I, frankly, find it very unlikely that those orders of magnitude were involved in any of the numbers that we were dealing with. You have to make certain that -- there’s been a lot of confusion about losses, and people have used the dinar, the basic currency unit of Iraq, and assumed they were American dollars. And, of course, that gives you a highly distorted view. There’s been, I’ve seen, several reports fairly recently in which that sort of mistake was being made. But what I can tell you is that no such numbers of any order of magnitude of the type you are discussing came to the attention of the Federal Reserve.

AMY GOODMAN: This is based on that award-winning article in Vanity Fair, or the team who have won --

ALAN GREENSPAN: Let me put it this way, award-winning doesn't necessarily --

AMY GOODMAN: Well, no, no. I mean Don Barlett and Jim Steele, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists. I’m sure you know their work. But Naomi Klein?

NAOMI KLEIN: Well, I would just add that it’s quite surprising, actually, that Mr. Greenspan is unaware of this scandal around Iraq's missing billions, because Paul Bremer had to testify before Congress and was asked directly about those missing billions. It’s been the subject of very high-level investigations. There is a huge paper trail around it. So this is hardly a secret, and it’s hardly just a matter that’s confined to Vanity Fair. This is --

ALAN GREENSPAN: Oh, I’m not saying that the losses are not real. I think they are, because, obviously, we can't account for all the oil revenues. I’m just merely saying it’s not something which was directly related to any of the actions which the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, to which we were referring, was involved, as far as I know.

LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE!!!

The HEAD of the Fed knows nothing about 9 BILLION MISSING DOLLARS???

Must have been absent that day.

It must be hard for MoveOn.org to have 21 Democratic Senators vote to denounce the ad when MoveOn.org has been so supportive of the party. However, I don't think that it's appropriate for the Senate to be voting on newspaper ads, when it is a clear 1st Amendment right of anyone in our representative republic to place such ads, whether one agrees with them or not, and with almost half the Senate Dems voting to denounce MoveOn's freedom of speech and the Dem leadership taking impeachment "off the table" and giving BushCo more latitude to spy on us, I wonder which part of our Constitution the Dems will defile next?

@ Buzzflash

The incident should have been pointed out to be what it was, fascism rolls over democracy and the First Amendment.

Congress is up to their eyeballs in the fascist way of doing business and the sooner the American people realize it the sooner we can remove cancerous fascism from the US.

DEN said...

Move On might have been right or wrong but it is their Constitutional right to publish whatever they want.

Who in the fascist government is objecting to limpbaugh, o'liely, or the rest of the riech wing news media while they tear up liberals and progressives for ratings?

*crickets chirping*

I thought so.

U.S. climate laggard:

U.N. says U.S. not on track

Short.

Gerald said...

DBB, U.S. is not on track with only global warming. The U.S. under Hitler Bush has been off track for some time.

The reason is that when they were passing out brains, Hitler Bush thought they met trains and he starting looking for the caboose.

DEN said...

Off the track and in the DITCH!

Only God can save us now, but I suspect he might decide to start over.

This batch of humanity did not turn out as well as planned.

David B. Benson said...

In today's paper is an AP story which states:

"The science, [climatologist] Mann said, is because climate researchers are sure of one thing that the public isn't: The numbers show there is still time to avert the worst."

The article goes on to quote NASA's James Hansen as stating "It's not to late to stabilize climate."

Demand meaningful action from your congresscriters, not this buisness-as-usual ethanol-from-corn (doesn't help, might hurt) and biodiesel-from-rapeseed (hurts more than helps).

Alan said...

Let's see, $2.4 billion in $100-bills is... 24,000,000 (24 million) of 'em, right?
Son-ova-biotchhhh!!
Now where's the other 66,000,000 bills??? You can't just slide them between your mattress 'n box spring, or under a rug.

Dear Den

"I don’t know about you, but my children can't afford another Republican president."

Bradley Whitford was moved to write those words. Brad, the actor who portrayed Democratic political operative "Josh Lyman" on The West Wing, was disgusted by the most recent Republican dirty trick to steal the White House. This time, the Swift Boat cabal wants to hoodwink California voters into surrendering 20 electoral college votes — the equivalent of Ohio — to the Republican presidential nominee.

Brad asked me what he could do to help get the message out about this blatantly deceptive initiative headed for California’s June primary election. So I asked him to film a video message for you.

A few days later, we filmed Brad at his home, speaking from his heart, not from our script. Surrounded by his children’s toys and books — Brad’s poignant words that day reminded me of who has the most to lose if the Republicans steal the presidency for four more years.

You can watch Brad’s passionate piece in a YouTube video that premieres today on our brand new “No Dirty Tricks” web site:

http://www.NoDirtyTricks.com

Brad is right, of course. The future of our democracy and the fate of the world will hang in the balance on June 3, 2008. As Brad bluntly asserts in his video message: if the so-called "Presidential Election reform Act" passes, "that, my friends, would be the ballgame."

We can’t afford four more years of Iraq.

We can’t afford four more years of torture.

We can’t afford four more years of wiretapping.

We can’t afford four more years of dirty tricks.

Please go to our all-new web site right now and watch Brad’s YouTube video. Then forward this message to your friends, family and neighbors and ask them to watch it as well.

http://www.NoDirtyTricks.com

Check out our new web site launched by our blogger-driven team to help build a people-powered movement — the only way we'll defeat this dirty trick.

By "people-powered," I mean a campaign powered and empowered by the ideas of grassroots and netroots activists. A campaign that engages you in discussion about how to talk with your friends and neighbors about this initiative.

As an example, many of the ideas for NoDirtyTricks.com came from discussions with activists at last month’s Yearly Kos convention of bloggers and online organizers in Chicago.

Seven weeks later, this inspiration is now a dynamic web site where you can watch several of our previous YouTube videos, read nearly every newspaper article and blog post on this cynical scheme, and review the incredible list of leaders and bloggers endorsing NoDirtyTricks.com:

http://www.NoDirtyTricks.com

Together, we can defeat this dirty trick. But we don’t have to stop there. Through NoDirtyTricks.com, the Courage Campaign is uniting the netroots and grassroots to build a winning progressive agenda for the future.

Thank you for everything you are doing to make sure our kids grow up in a world in which dirty tricks are for Halloween, not for stealing the White House again.

DEN, G. K. Chesterton was asked, "What is the problem with the world?" His answer was, "It's me!"

Yes, we need to all look at ourselves very carefully and ask ourselves, "Am I the problem in this world?"

Our silence as Americans in the killing of God's children who are our brothers and sisters in God places us at the center of the world's problems.

We should never be like Hitler Bush and blame everyone else for our wretched lives and disastrous decisions. We are the problem for man's unhumanity toward man.

Protecting our wide bottoms to maintain our comfort zones while everyone else suffers means we are the problem.

Gerald said...

DBB, God does work in mysterious ways. He has given us a free will and we are self-imploding. Global warming and endless wars could have been averted but we let our god, Hitler Bush, ruin our lives and our souls.

Gerald said...

Inhumanity and not unhumanity!!!

David B. Benson said...

What does the constitution say about removing vice-presidents for reason of insanity?

I think the answer is, unfortunately, nothing at all.

However, the ninth and tenth amendments ought to be applicable in this situation...
