Oil price hits $41 all-time high
"There's no denying that this is an oil administration, you can't talk about the career of any George Bush -- father or son -- without talking about oil." - Peter Eisner [November 19, 2001]
I have seen scams before, but this one is brilliant. First, you offer a bunch of dumb apathetics a very small government tax cut; while offering the rich a massive one, then you redirect a War on Terror into an illegal War on Iraq; making sure you upset OPEC; who in turn, slow oil production, causing high gas prices, and ask Who Is Making A Fortune on Oil & Gas?
'You are looking at the biggest oil refinery in the world,' indicates LaNell Anderson. She refers to the edifice that is the 3,000-acre Exxon Mobil plant at Baytown, near Houston, producer of 507,800 barrels a day. Here begins a story of both dynasty and destiny, for it was on this spot in 1917 that the Bush family's oil connection was forged - where the Humble Oil company, which struck black gold in the Houston suburb of that name, took root, later to be- come the Exxon behemoth. Humble's founder, William Stamps Farish, went on to become president of Standard Oil. His daughter became a friend of George Bush Sr and his grandson William Jr was taken in 'almost like family' (said Barbara Bush) while campaigning for George Sr's entrée into Washington Senatorial politics in 1964. Farish Jr claims to have been the first man to whom Bush Sr confided his ambition to be president one day, and was last year named US Ambassador to London.

Shortly after Desert Storm, the Associated Press reported Cheney's desire to broaden the United States' military role in the region to hedge future threats to gulf oil resources. Cheney is CEO of Dallas-based Halliburton Co., the biggest oil-services company in the world. Because of the instability in the Persian Gulf, Cheney and his fellow oilmen have zeroed in on the world's other major source of oil--the Caspian Sea. Its rich oil and gas resources are estimated at $4 trillion by U.S. News and World Report. [ article - August 10, 2000 Cheney's Black Gold: Oil Interests May Drive US Foreign Policy]
The tax cuts were a mean trick and scam for Bush Family Associates and corporate oil businessmen. Between winter fuel and today's gas prices, my tax cut has turned into a deficit and it appears government tax money was shifted into BIG OIL.

MAY 19, 2004
It has been calculated that if everyone in the United States did not purchase a drop of gasoline for one day and all at the same time, the oil companies would choke on their stockpiles.
At the same time it would hit the entire industry with a net loss of over 4.6 billion dollars, which affects the bottom lines of the oil companies.
Therefore May 19th has been formally declared “stick it to them” day and the people of this nation should not buy a single drop of gasoline that day.
The only way this can be done is if you forward this e-mail to as many people as you can and as quickly as you can to get the word out.
Waiting on this administration to step in and control the prices is not going to happen. What happened to the reduction and control in prices that the Arab nations promised two weeks ago?
Remember one thing, not only is the price of gasoline going up but at the same time airlines are forced to raise their prices, trucking companies are forced to raise their prices which effects prices on everything that is shipped. Things like food, clothing, building materials, medical supplies etc. Who pays in the end? We do!
We can make a difference. If they don’t get the message after one day, we will do it again and again.
So do your part and spread the word. Forward this to everyone you know. Mark your calendars and make May 19th a day that the citizens of the United States say “enough is enough”

Nobody Knows the Truth about Duckgate
Despite conditioned corporate media perception, the concept of "Anybody But Bush" suggests "Voting For The Lesser Of Evils" and is a good example why "None of the Above" should be placed on voter ballots.
The threshold of another 'pair_of_ducks' (not to be confused with Duckgate ) looms ...remembering 2000 and how it might have been if 'wanting to make a percentage showing' had cast their support; ...perhaps saving the planet from corporate pirates? On a personal note, and a little off topic, ...an alleged "war chest" of 200 million plus dollars is greater than a dollar per vote, per voting citizen, ...and this is the 'financial line' ...which has been drawn in the 2004 election sand'.
We are faced with the probability of four more years by an administration that has no more regard for truth than it has for the lives of 'other people's children'.
Most people are starting to catch on to Bush's aggressive nation building war that serves oil barons and a few misguided Christians (appearance of 'those' very good at deception 'during the last days') with an agenda. Unfortunately, this is what the voting minority will hand to the apathetic majority.
There are problems with the legality of the 2000 Florida election, Bush's military service, Bush family associates who may have known about 9/11 in advance, Official Government Reports that do not make sense, the S.E.C. and Justice Departments cover-up of 9/11 Insider trading, and Nobody knows who ordered the Air Force to stand down during the 9/11 attack.
Folks don't like to admit it when they get 'duped', but in this case, it is 'more than necessary' to get over it...now, because it is no longer about political parties, it is about 'honesty', which should be the 'core' of any family values.
No matter how corporate media spins it, the Bush Administration lied about the war in Iraq which creates a domino effect of eroding trust.
If they lied once.... did they do it before, ....are they doing it now, and ....will they do it in the future, if it serves their questionable purpose?

DUCK & COVER,
BUSH IT FLYING!
by Dahbud Mensch 544
During times of universal deceit,
telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
"If a president is willing to lie about the most basic governmental and political facts, civic debate becomes impossible, and the public becomes incapable of informed judgment. Because of the great weight that any president's words have with the public, the president of the United States must not be a liar. One of the grounds correctly included in Richard Nixon's articles of impeachment was that he lied to the American public." - TONY BLANKLEY.
"The War President" & his Administration are in trouble and that spells potential disaster for the rest of US because it poses the possibility of something EVIL, like Operation Northwoods, happening ...and if you think this is more 'conspiracy crap', read this: HISTORY OF SECRET EXPERIMENTATION ON UNITED STATES CITIZENS and this: CHEMTRAILS.
It should now be obvious sites like ours believe in GOVERNMENT HONESTY, are seeking TRUTH, and are NOT THE ENEMY, as the FANATIC Ashcroft would have you believe. In fact, most folks here are Veterans of Korea or Vietnam and appear to care more for their country than the 'sheep masses and their Bushmaster' (Nation of Sheep by William J. Lederer).
The Bush Administration lied about Iraq and could be charged with WAR CRIMES. Based on Bush family history, Republicans and the Bush (Silverado) Administration will do whatever it takes to keep out of jail, even if it means faking a terrorist attack. For the record, some corporate 'not_the_reporter' media are suggesting a terrorist attack will happen soon, it will be a "small one" (this might be a clue as to why: half way down page, under: Legions of Darkness), and Fux said it would make President Bush unbeatable in the 2004 election, if it happens.
In closing, here is something to think about. In the Archives there is mention and links to a number of corporate media and politicians who appeared to have advance knowledge of Saddam's capture (WTE has it on tape as predictions).
Recently, there was a corporate media blitz on "U.S. military sure of nabbing bin Laden in 2004". We know Military are somewhat like lawyers who know answers to questions before they ask, this would indicate a known rather than probability, and NOBODY "sure" remembers October Surprise ...[Thanks to Amestizo for the "sure" reminder].

A funny thing happened on the way to the millennium. I walked up to every well known TV religious personality, extended my hand and said, "I am he that you seek" (those involved WILL remember) and do you what they did? They had me removed by their bodyguards and thrown into the street. If that wasn't bad enough, Ann Coulter called me a dirty liberal hippy and I forgave him.
I am not one to beat around the bush, because God knows bush should be smoked rather than beaten, and it is time to correct some things starting with, "the Sons of God cohabited with the daughters of man". Ever really stop to consider what that means or why it exists in all myths and religions?
This was not supposed to happen like this, but those pesky forces of darkness keep us on our toes, and now that they own the Media, there is no other platform, besides the Internet, that will allow Free & Honest reporting. What... you thought you would hear a voice booming from heaven? ...Jesus and Buddha said you were naive.
WE ARE merciful and will tell you how to fix it, but believe the MAJOR part of You are holes of the donkey, who should really wise up! For those who just thought, 'oooo language usage or variation thereof', I remind you, I worked in the streets with real people and not on pulpits, in crystal mansions, built with money from the sweat of poor people. You seem to forget my parent's house is everywhere.
Fixing It - Part One
Since the current statistic allocates 6 to 20 seconds for Internet attention span, I will 'short cut', rather than quote, which will require a brief introduction.
The earth did revolve off axis, we were bound by something similar to your science fiction "Prime Directive", and could not do anything to help; however, we were allowed to save your history and place it in an area known as Tibet. Unfortunately this book has had a habit of getting stolen, retranslated, and passed on. There are several originals and the closest location of a complete archive is Mars. It is also important to understand that in this unmodified book we are all God's children and even though the characters may be different, the story is always the same.
In order to fix 'It', you must start with the basics. There are three MAJOR incidents which must be corrected and must be done in the reverse order.
(1) The reason the story of Abraham's son Ishmael stands out in the Torah a.k.a. Old Testament, is because the guilt of the rewrite is standing out. The true birthright belongs to Ishmael and Sarah's children are his brothers and sisters. This is the first thing that needs to be fixed, because the violence today reflects that lie. ...I heard 'the oooo' again, so ask your (sic) religious leaders what the electron microscope revealed on the old scrolls.
(2) Cain must not kill Abel. Brother killed brother and this is where war originated. Don't Kill!
(3) The Apple was not an apple it was a mushroom, the same kind handed out at the "Sermon on the Mount". It and other sacred plants were described in the original book as a way to reach the Creator and have been deleted. If you make it to Mars, without destroying things again, you will see this.
...I heard those comments. Think about it...all of you... is there any proof from the living or dead; David Blaine excluded, that your beliefs are real. It's a matter of faith, isn't it? And when was the last time you really saw or heard from any of us....a few thousand years ago? Consider this possibilty:
6. If we want world peace, we must let go of our attachments and truly live like nomads. That's where I no mad at you, you no mad at me. That way, there'll surely be nomadness on the planet. And peace begins with each of us. A little peace here, a little peace there, pretty soon all the peaces will fit together to make one big peace everywhere.

The Tsk Factor
When I was a child, people would rub their left index finger in a downward motion (from knuckle to nail) with their right index finger and say, "Tsk!, Tsk!, Tsk!". It was another way of saying, "Shame On You".
Recently, 'the tank' started using a new buzz phrase, "The Tsk Factor". It refers to Corporate Media Deception and works like this (short examples provided 'for the drift'):
GOP/Republicans spend 55 million tax dollars to discover if Monica swallowed. = Headlines = Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
Bush Administration Kill Thousands of Iraqi Civilians in Illegal War. = Buried Back Page
GOP/Republicans spend 55 million tax dollars to discover if Monica swallowed. = Headlines = Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
George Bush Jr. AWOL over a year (information FOIA and military records). = Buried Back Page
GOP/Republicans spend 55 million tax dollars to discover if Monica swallowed. = Headlines = Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
Christian 'Right To Life' encourages murder of doctors/nurses/etc. and clinic bombing = Buried Back Page
Michael Jackson = Headlines = Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
Massive Anti-Bush Protests In England = Buried Back Page
Our Sons and Daughters Dying in Iraq over Oil. = Buried Back Page
Tsk Factor or Headline:
Who Ordered the Air Force to stand down on 9/11?...or did you forget a plan was established to have the Air Force airborne in five minutes after that plane tried to crash into the Clinton White House?
Why do the S.E.C. and Justice Departments avoid Insider Trading before 9/11 and go after Martha Stewart?
The Pentagon was not hit by a 757. Here is proof: The Pentagon Attack Frame-Up.
In closing, explore Osama's involvement with 9/11 (He said he had nothing to do with 9/11 and we thought that was odd.) and the doctored Osama tape. You may find 'them' more interesting now that Paul O'Neill has spoken out on 'Inside the Bush Administration'.
Legions of Darkness
NBC (General Electric) & CBS (Westinghouse) are evil and the LARGEST EXPORTERS OF WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ON THE PLANET.
They PROFIT from MURDER, DEATH & DESTRUCTION using the oldest tool on the planet, "Divide and Conquer". Here is a brief description:
1) Keep the Majority (of the population) Stupid. Give them cute labels like 'Soccer Moms' and 'NASCAR Dads' when you need their support.
2) If the Majority show any signs of intelligence, create 'Have' and 'Have Not's', by giving Have something and Have Not Nothing. Then get them to fight one another for failure to share.
3) Sell both sides tools of destruction to fight/destroy and then sell them the tools to rebuild.
Owning Major media makes it easier to implement divide and conquer, which produces massive profit, has nothing to do with humanity, and would indicate talking heads are tools of the Legions of Darkness. It makes one wonder if purchases of their sponsor's products support EVIL and this ?

GOD said, "thou shall not kill" and Jesus extended this concept when he said, "Christians are to no longer execute sinners, so they should not wage carnal war, but spiritual warfare (John 18:36; 2 Corinthians 10:1-6; Ephesians 6:10-18; 1 Timothy 1:18-20; 6:11-14; 2 Timothy 2:3-5; 4:6-8).
Christians must be peacemakers (Matthew 5:9, Romans 14:19), forgiving those who do them harm (Ephesians 4:29-32; Colossians 3:12-14; Matthew 6:9-15; Mark 11:25-26), treating their enemies with love (Luke 6:27-36) and not seeking revenge (Romans 12:17-21; 1 Peter 3:8-12).
Hatred which is the same as murder (1 John 3:15), is unforgiving, vengeful and hostile towards one's enemies"; which begs the question,
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ?

Origin of "The Plan"
by Dahbud Mensch 322
When President Ronald Reagan was shot and laying on the operating table, General Alexander Haig said, "I am in control here.", giving the impression a military coup of the United.States had occured.
Since then, I have been trying to figure out what really happened and here is what I came up with, so far. It started with General Douglas MacArthur and this quote gives the background:
There is a tradition in American government that the military is subordinate to the civilian leaders. Generals do not make statements about policy without first clearing them with their superiors. But MacArthur, used to ruling in Japan, ignored the chain of command, and began writing letters about what the United States should do in Korea. He sent a letter to the Veterans of Foreign Wars saying that Formosa would be a fine place to launch an aggressive campaign against China. After the Chinese entered the war -- something MacArthur had assured Truman would never happen -- MacArthur wrote to Speaker of the House Joe Martin saying the United States could only win by an all-out war, and this meant bombing the Manchurian bases. So Harry Truman fired him, and evoked a firestorm of criticism from conservatives who believed Truman to be soft on communism. But there is no question that Truman was absolutely correct. Whether his overall policy was right or wrong, the American Constitution commits control of foreign policy to the president and not to the military. As Truman explained, avoidance of World War III while containing aggression was a difficult line to walk, but that was the policy the United States had decided upon. No soldier, not even a five-star general, could unilaterally challenge that policy without disturbing an essential element of democratic government.
Every 'Brass' has their staff and MacArthur's 'pretty boy' was 2nd Lieutenant Alexander M. Haig.
Upon graduating from the U.S. Military Academy in 1947, Alexander M. Haig was commission a second lieutenant in the Army, serving in Japan with the 1st Cavalry Division and on the staff of General Douglas MacArthur, in the Korean War.
General MacArthur hated Truman, was a Republican, and had many Republican friends in 'high places'.
As the crisis intensified and public backing for the war eroded, MacArthur stepped up his private and public criticisms of the administration. Predicting catastrophe unless dramatic action was taken, MacArthur recommended full-scale military action against the People's Republic of China, including a coastal blockade of the Chinese mainland, intensive bombing of industrial centers in Manchuria and northern China, and the unleashing of at least 50,000 of Chiang's Nationalist troops on the Korean peninsula. He also suggested using atomic weapons against China, although he put forth no precise plan for deployment. By the spring of 1951 he advocated a second major offensive north of the thirty-eighth parallel to unify the two Koreas. His pronouncements found an especially receptive audience among conservative Republicans--including House Minority leader Joe Martin of Massachusetts, California Representative Richard M. Nixon, and Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy--who had vigorously attacked Truman for overcommitting U.S. power to Europe and giving short shrift to Asia. MacArthur had established a political power base with these Republicans and had never hid his own presidential ambitions.
The scariest, besides (I AM NOT A CROOK) Richard M. Nixon, was Senator Joseph McCarthy.
The hunt for subversives started during the war itself, and was furthered by congressional committees that often abused their powers of investigation to harass people with whom they differed politically. Then in February 1950, an undistinguished, first-term Republican senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy, burst into national prominence when, in a speech in Wheeling, West Virginia, he held up a piece of paper that he claimed was a list of 205 known communists currently working in the State Department. McCarthy never produced documentation for a single one of his charges, but for the next four years he exploited an issue that he realized had touched a nerve in the American public.
Resolved, That the Senator from Wisconsin, Mr. McCarthy, failed to cooperate with the Subcommittee on Privileges and Elections of the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration in clearing up matters referred to that subcommittee which concerned his conduct as a Senator and affected the honor of the Senate and, instead, repeatedly abused the subcommittee and its members who were trying to carry out assigned duties, thereby obstructing the constitutional processes of the Senate, and that this conduct of the Senator from Wisconsin, Mr. McCarthy, is contrary to senatorial traditions and is hereby condemned.
During World War I, Eisenhower (nicknamed "Ike" as a boy) served at several military training camps, establishing himself as a first-rate organizer and trainer of men. He spent two years as executive officer to Gen. Fox Conner, military commander at Camp Gaillard in the Panama Canal Zone. With Conner's help, Eisenhower was admitted to the Command and General Staff School at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. In 1926, he graduated first in his class of 275, going on to attend the Army War College in Washington, D.C. He advanced in his career, holding various posts, including aide to General Douglas MacArthur, then Chief of Staff of the United States Army. Going with MacArthur when the General was named military adviser to the Commonwealth of the Philippines in 1935, Eisenhower helped establish the Philippine Air Force and the Philippine Military Academy. He obtained a pilot's license at age 47.
1. Senator Joseph McCarthy,
2. Harry S. Truman,
3. Field Marshal Bernard Mongomery,
4. John F. Kennedy,
5. General Douglas MacArthur, and special mention Lyndon B. Johnson.
Nixon blamed the country's economic and other problems on Democratic President Truman's administration and argued that things were much improved under the outgoing Republican administration of Eisenhower.
There are some who believe the "Bay of Pigs" was the beginning of a Coup of the United States Government and part of the reason for President John Kennedy's assassination.
Democratic President Truman totally angers General Douglas MacArthur, a Republican.
It is easy to imagine MacArthur and his Republican buddies, Martin, McCarthy, and Nixon vowing vengeance, no matter how long it takes.
Republican Eisenhower becomes President and warns of "The Military Industrial Complex".
Kennedy becomes President, defeating Nixon and totally angers the 'Intelligence Community'. ((btw) Most 'Intelligence personnel' have a military background and some of them belong to organizations/orders/societies they entered as students.)
At this point, you have to ask yourself what made a difference during these times and the answer is, 'Military controlled' atomic bomb; which annihilated the "Right to Bear Arms" and made things historically 'one sided'; in that, the wealthy 1% of the population that controlled the remaining 99% lost control to their 'Royal Guard'.
The "Cold War" link above is an outline.
I put the UFO link on Reagan's name, because this is about the time one stopped seeing him in public and on the media.
The 'thing' that is interesting during these times is, one hardly saw Vice President Bush, except for Vice Presidential functions, during the entire Reagan era. What was he doing?
The powerful men of Skull & Bones genuinely believe that they have a strategic and moral "right" to control world affairs. Consequently, they take upon themselves the authority to crush any rivalrous threat to U.S. imperial leadership, whether by current allies, such as Japan, Germany or Great Britain, or by Cold War adversaries, like the Soviet Union. The members of the Order, due to their narrow WASP upbringing, view with particular suspicion the maneuverings of Zionist Israel and its affluent, influential lobby in the United States.
Bush, his fellow Bonesmen and their like-thinking elitist allies in the American Establishment see themselves as New World Order warriors, an American samurai caste of sorts, whose mission is restoring American greatness. They intend to utilize the institutional networks of the U.S. government and key private agencies, such as the New York Council on Foreign Relations, to advance their purpose.
The Skull & Bones members believe in the idea of "constructive chaos." By keeping their true policy intentions secret, by constantly sending out mixed signals on all critical policy issues, they consciously seek to sow confusion among both their nominal "friends" and "enemies" alike.
The fulcrum for the policy of constructive chaos is, at present, the Middle East situation. Although U.S. military action in the region has for the time being subsided, America's military power will remain a critical determinant in the future of that vital zone of conflict. American military power is aimed at securing undisputed control over the vast reservoir of oil -- not at necessarily fostering any permanent alignment of local states or combinations of regional interests.
January 26, 1998
The Honorable William J. Clinton
President of the United States
Dear Mr. President:
We are writing you because we are convinced that current American policy
toward Iraq is not succeeding, and that we may soon face a threat in the
Middle East more serious than any we have known since the end of the Cold
War. In your upcoming State of the Union Address, you have an opportunity
to chart a clear and determined course for meeting this threat. We urge
you to seize that opportunity, and to enunciate a new strategy that would
secure the interests of the U.S. and our friends and allies around the
world. That strategy should aim, above all, at the removal of Saddam Hussein’s
regime from power. We stand ready to offer our full support in this difficult
but necessary endeavor.
The policy of “containment” of Saddam Hussein has been steadily
eroding over the past several months. As recent events have demonstrated,
we can no longer depend on our partners in the Gulf War coalition to continue
to uphold the sanctions or to punish Saddam when he blocks or evades UN
inspections. Our ability to ensure that Saddam Hussein is not producing
weapons of mass destruction, therefore, has substantially diminished. Even
if full inspections were eventually to resume, which now seems highly unlikely,
experience has shown that it is difficult if not impossible to monitor
Iraq’s chemical and biological weapons production. The lengthy period
during which the inspectors will have been unable to enter many Iraqi facilities
has made it even less likely that they will be able to uncover all of Saddam’s
secrets. As a result, in the not-too-distant future we will be unable to
determine with any reasonable level of confidence whether Iraq does or
does not possess such weapons.
Such uncertainty will, by itself, have
a seriously destabilizing effect on the entire Middle East. It hardly
needs to be added that if Saddam does acquire the capability to deliver
weapons of mass destruction, as he is almost certain to do if we continue
along the present course, the safety of American troops in the region,
of our friends and allies like Israel and the moderate Arab states,
and a significant portion of the world’s supply of oil will all
be put at hazard. As you have rightly declared, Mr. President, the
security of the world in the first part of the 21st century will be
determined largely by how we handle this threat.
Given the magnitude of the threat, the
current policy, which depends for its success upon the steadfastness
of our coalition partners and upon the cooperation of Saddam Hussein,
is dangerously inadequate. The only acceptable strategy is one that
eliminates the possibility that Iraq will be able to use or threaten
to use weapons of mass destruction. In the near term, this means a
willingness to undertake military action as diplomacy is clearly failing.
In the long term, it means removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from
power. That now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy.
We urge you to articulate this aim, and
to turn your Administration's attention to implementing a strategy
for removing Saddam's regime from power. This will require a full complement
of diplomatic, political and military efforts. Although we are fully
aware of the dangers and difficulties in implementing this policy,
we believe the dangers of failing to do so are far greater. We believe
the U.S. has the authority under existing UN resolutions to take the
necessary steps, including military steps, to protect our vital interests
in the Gulf. In any case, American policy cannot continue to be crippled
by a misguided insistence on unanimity in the UN Security Council.
We urge you to act decisively. If you
act now to end the threat of weapons of mass destruction against the
U.S. or its allies, you will be acting in the most fundamental national
security interests of the country. If we accept a course of weakness
and drift, we put our interests and our future at risk.

This letter indicates "The Plan" was/is still alive.
One plan being considered by the White House is based on the occupation of Japan following World War II and includes installing a U.S. commander to administer Iraq, perhaps U.S. Central Command head Gen. Tommy Franks in the role taken by Gen. Douglas MacArthur after Tokyo surrendered in 1945, The New York Times said in its Friday editions.
An American general could be appointed to rule a liberated Iraq as part of a White House plan modelled on Gen Douglas MacArthur's rule over Japan after the Second World War.
