    are aware and concerned enough to get this story out there. They see the writing on the wall and someone over there is trying to watch our backs.

    I've known about General Butler and the coup attempt for a very long time now. What I DIDN'T know, was Prescott Bush's involvement in it. I'd suspected, but never was able to find credible sources saying as much.

    It certainly does make sense and fits the overall pattern we've seen with this administration. It also fits very well with my hypothesis that the shutdown of the WTO meetings here in Seattle in '99 spooked the hell out of the economic elites. Scared them enough to start looking for ways to prevent what must have appeared an emminent threat to their long-term dominance.

    Little over a year later, we have what really does amount to a undercover coup and well... the rest we're living right now.

    Not sure whether I'm proud or guilty about being in the middle of the WTO shutdown, assuming of course, my idea has merit.

    We sure do need another General Butler now though!

    Síocháin! It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

      when 911 and iraq started, i read discussions that it was a turf war between competing factions of the new world order, some tin hatters put forth the notion that bush was on our side by by fighting off the rothchilds, the petrodollar war was for american dominance. getting the iraq oil being the key to defeat the europeans.

      We will never know the truths. But in close examination is a purely a war against america.

      Meanwhile found this related article how it
      is all being pieced together.


      Operation Falcon: Blueprint for removing dissidents and political rivals

      The Bush administration has carried out three massive sweeps in the last two years, rolling up more than 30,000 minor crooks and criminals, without as much as a whimper of protest from the public.

      So far, not one of the more than 30,000 victims has been charged with a terror-related crime. So far, not one of the more than 30,000 victims has been charged with a terror-related crime.Operation Falcon is the clearest indication yet that the Bush administration is fine-tuning its shock-troops so it can roll up tens of thousands of people at a moment's notice and toss them into the newly-built Halliburton detention centers. This should be a red flag for anyone who cares at all about human rights, civil liberties, or simply saving his own skin.

      Bogus News Reports

      The Falcon operation illustrates the incestuous relationship between the media and the state. They are two wings on the same plane. The Justice Department provided the TV networks with official footage of policemen and government agents raiding homes and handcuffing suspects; and the media dutifully aired the video on stations across the country. The scenes were accompanied by a reassuring commentary lauding the administration's new crime fighting strategies and linking homeland security with the nebulous war on terror.

      Attorney General Gonzales told reporters, "Operation FALCON is an excellent example of President Bush's direction and the Justice Department's dedication to deal both with the terrorist threat and traditional violent crime." He added, "This joint effort shows the commitment of our federal, state, and local partners to make our neighborhoods safer, and it has led to the highest number of arrests ever recorded for a single initiative of its kind."

      So far, not one of the more than 30,000 victims has been charged with a terror-related crime.

      The media-hype surrounding the raids has been celebratory and uniform; cookie-cutter articles appeared throughout the US press (most of them unsourced) highlighting the cooperation between the divers agencies while providing an upbeat account of what amounts to police repression. Thousands of nearly identical articles appeared in the nation's newspapers which seem to have been authored by high-ranking officials at Homeland Security and protégés of George Orwell; although the difference between the two is far from certain.

      Even stranger, most of the articles in the mainstream media can no longer be retrieved via a Google search. They seem to have vanished into the black-hole of Homeland propaganda.

      No matter. If the media was supposed to make Gestapo-like crackdowns look like normal police operations; they succeeded admirably. Mission accomplished

      Brown is more in tune with the left and truthseekers.  Blair was just like his close pal, Bill Clinton. They would COVER for the fascists with their smiling faces and softer words and turned away heads.
