NO IMMUNITY FOR CORPORATIONS WHO BREAK THE LAW!

NIXON WAS IMPEACHED FOR SPYING!

IMMUNITY IS FOR BUSH AND CHENEY IF THIS BILL PASSES!

Last night while channel surfing I happened upon the C-Span and the House of Representatives.

I saw my congressman Roy Blunt demanding the House go into secret session. WTF is that I said to myself, I had never heard of this action. Roy Blunt and his kid Governor Matt Blunt are scum bag corrupt criminals. Both have had their campaign finance records subpoenaed by Tom Delay prosecutor Ronny Earle. Which could be the reason Matt Blunt dropped his re-election bid for governor. I guess Roy is going to take his chances and pray the idiots here in Joplin and Springfield re-elect him.

But I digress.

Turns out Blunt claims he has information of great importance that could make everyone vote for the FISA bill George Bush wants. For 2 weeks now the republicans have obstructed the House from doing the peoples business. Every day I have watched them try to adjourn the House and every day they themselves have voted no.

Everyday the GOP have tried to force other members into giving immunity to the telecoms, which would really mean giving Bush and Cheney protection from illegally spying on us like Richard Nixon did.

Personally I think he needed a secret meeting so he could tell each House member what dirt the illegal wiretaps had gathered on them. I am 100% sure democrats and republican lawmakers have been spied on. I wouldn’t put blackmail past Bush and his evil minions.

I saw Dennis Kucinich say this secret session had only been used 5 times in the history of this nation. Actually it’s only been used 3 times so says c-span, it was used in 1979, 1980 and 1986.

Call your House member today and DEMAND they NOT give IMMUNITY to the telecom companies. Why do they need immunity if they did nothing illegal???


House agrees to rare secret session on spy bill


Thomas Ferraro and Tabassum Zakaria
Reuters US Online Report Top News

Mar 13, 2008 19:47 EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House of Representatives abruptly postponed a vote on a spy bill on Thursday after Democrats agreed to a Republican request to hold a rare secret session to discuss classified security matters.

The vote was reset for Friday.

The bill would revamp a 1978 surveillance law and reject President George W. Bush's demand that phone companies that participated in his warrantless domestic spy program begun after the September 11 attacks be immunized from lawsuits.

House Republican Whip Roy Blunt said he wants to privately inform colleagues how the Democratic measure could disrupt anti-terrorism efforts.

Blunt said several lawmakers with high-security clearance already had access to the information, but wanted to make sure all were aware of it.

"There are a significant number of elements of how the (1978) Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act works and ... specific examples of how their proposed changes would prevent it from working that I think can only be disclosed in a secret session," Blunt said.

Several Democrats voiced skepticism, with some suggesting Republicans were merely trying to delay action on the bill that Bush has threatened to veto.

But Democrats ultimately agreed for the House to hold its first secret session since 1983 on Thursday night. The session was set to last an hour and begin after authorities cleared and secured the chamber.

"I have great respect for Mr. Blunt," House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer said in backing his request for a secret session. "I take him at his word."

Other Democrats remained skeptical, however.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat said, "I have attended many classified briefings, and I have seen nothing that would justify the broad changes (in surveillance law) sought by the White House."

"On the issue of retroactive immunity for the telecommunications companies that aided in the president's warrantless wiretapping program, I doubt that anything can be revealed in the closed session that would demonstrate the need for anything other than what we have proposed," Nadler said.

While the House bill would not grant immunity, it would allow phone companies to present their defense in a closed-door U.S. district court, with the judge given access to confidential documents about the surveillance program.

"I think that is the proper way to decide whether they should have immunity or not -- not members of Congress' voting on it," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat.

About 40 civil suits have been filed accusing AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc and Sprint Nextel Corp of violating the privacy rights of law-abiding Americans swept up in the electronic surveillance of phone calls and e-mails.

Speaking at the White House earlier in the day, Bush said, "This litigation would undermine the private sector's willingness to cooperate with the intelligence community, cooperation that is absolutely essential to protecting our country from harm."

Bush's demand for immunity for the phone companies has been a major stumbling block in getting the Senate and House to agree on a bill to replace a temporary law that expired last month that had expanded the power of U.S. authorities to track enemy targets without a court order.

The Senate overwhelmingly passed legislation immunizing phone companies. But House Democratic leaders have refused to include immunity in their version of the measure.

Hoyer agrees to closed FISA session

By Susan Crabtree and Walter Alarkon Posted: 03/13/08 01:00 PM [ET]

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) has agreed to a GOP request for a secret House session Thursday to discuss the Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Act (FISA).

House Republicans had been seeking the closed session to delay a vote on a new Democratic FISA overhaul, unveiled Tuesday, and discuss its national security implications.

The last closed House session was held in 1983. Only five have been held since 1825.

Republicans plan to discuss behind closed doors why the new Democratic FISA bill is flawed, said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio). It would not grant retroactive immunity to the telecommunications firms that participated in the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program, which the Senate bill does.

The session comes on the heels of President Bush’s harsh criticism of the House Democratic bill earlier Thursday.

Republicans maintain that the delay in congressional action is causing “vital intelligence information” to be lost, according to an internal GOP memo about the need for a closed-session discussion.

House Democrats plan to bring up their FISA bill for a vote later Thursday after action on the budget is finished. At that time, a Republican member plans to call for a vote to go into closed session, which could last for up to one hour.

Republicans maintain that Democrats are bringing up a bill they know Bush would veto.

“The reason for calling a closed session is so that all members of the House can be present to discuss and have a candid debate on the importance of passing a long-term modernization of our nation’s foreign surveillance,” the GOP memo states.

It criticizes the Democratic FISA bill for failing to provide a long-term fix because the legislation would sunset in two years, and for giving an “unelected judge” the power to determine whether the carriers that aided the administration’s surveillance efforts after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks should be protected.

Jackie Kucinich contributed to this story.

Damn we missed this. Hey you guys how about we do this on the 12th of every month!

Reporters Without Borders launches Online Free Expression Day


Group calls on Net users to protest virtually against censorship in countries that are 'Internet enemies'


March 12, 2008 (Computerworld) Reporters Without Borders is asking Internet users to demonstrate virtually against countries that censor Internet freedom.

"From now on, we will organize activities every 12 March to condemn cybercensorship throughout the world," the organization said in a statement. "A response of this kind is needed to the growing tendency to crack down on bloggers and to close Web sites."

According to the advocacy group for press freedom, at least 62 cyberdissidents are imprisoned around the world and more than 2,600 Web sites, blogs or discussion forums were shut down or made inaccessible in 2007.

The organization said it is giving all Internet users the opportunity to demonstrate virtually in countries where physical protests aren't possible, such as Tiananmen Square in Beijing, Revolution Square in Cuba and the streets of Rangoon in Burma.

The idea behind the virtual protest is to denounce government censorship of the Internet and to demand more online freedom, the group said. Reporters Without Borders is calling on Internet users to protest in online versions of the nine countries the organization considers "Internet enemies." The virtual demonstrations start today at 11 a.m. Paris time, which is one hour past Greenwich Mean Time, and runs until 11 a.m. tomorrow.

Internet users will be able to create an avatar, choose a message for their banners and take part in one of the cyberprotests taking place in Burma, China, Cuba, Egypt, Eritrea, North Korea, Tunisia, Turkmenistan and Vietnam, the statement said.

"The hunting down of independent thinkers online is all the more effective as several major Western companies have colluded with governments in pinpointing 'trouble-makers,'" the group said. "Yahoo apologized in 2007 for a 'misunderstanding' which ended in journalist Shi Tao being sent to prison for 10 years. The company has been responsible for the imprisonment of a total of four Chinese cyberdissidents. It was apparently willing to 'obey local laws' that forced it to identify Internet users deemed to be dangerous."

Question War
This one and the next and the ones before


The vast amounts of money and resources that are robbed by militarism and warfare must be channeled into healing our global community and environment, rather than enforcing a corrupt, exploitive and devastating system of domination for profit. Humanity can do much better than this.

This War is consistent with centuries of wars waged for profit and domination. It should be obvious that Iraq is merely the continuation of standard US foreign policy. Wars are forced upon naturally peace-seeking peoples with deceptive and coercive tactics by a small minority ruling class. The lies of today follow the same time-tested formula used by governments to gain support from the people to pay for and die for greed-driven agendas that run completely counter to claims of security, freedom, democracy, humanitarian intervention etc. George Bush is only the latest in a string of presidents to cloak aggression in idealistic rhetoric. Killing in the name of democracy has a long and terrible history...

It is critical that we see the larger agenda beyond the current conflict so that peace activism does not continue to protest one war after another without addressing the fundamental and systemic causes that have persisted unchallenged for a very long time

Both Democrats and Republicans are in service to the War System (and the economic powers it services) and, as history has shown, it makes no real difference which party is in power at the national level; the agenda advances without pause. The wars continue and Congress always votes its approval. The difference is style, rhetoric, and issues tailored to toy with public opinion and controversy without affecting any real substantive change, let alone transformation. The Democrats give us a softer multi-lateral Imperialism while the Republicans favor a harder, unilateral approach. While the voting public is distracted by the political process (political theatre), the interventions and killing continue.

PEACE for Darfur?

I been signing petitions for 2 years now for Darfur and when we finally go after China to do something and calling on people to Boycott the Olympics in Beijing Peace suddenly comes to Darfur?

Will the peace last or is it just a ceasefire till after the Olympics?


Sudan and Chad sign peace deal

The presidents of Sudan and Chad have agreed in principle to prevent armed groups from operating along their shared border area, including the conflict-ridden Darfur region.

In signing the peace deal on Thursday Omar al-Bashir, Sudan's president, and Idriss Deby, his Chadian counterpart, committed to implement past accords that have previously failed to end the violence in the region.

The two leaders agreed to "inhibit all activities of armed groups and prevent the use of our respective territories for the destabilisation of one or the other of our states".

The non-aggression pact calls for the establishment of a monitoring group comprising foreign ministers from each country.

Al-Bashir and Deby sealed the agreement on the sidelines of a summit held by the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) in Dakar, the Senegalese capital.

They also committed to normalise relations between their countries.

The signing was witnessed by Ban Ki-moon, UN secretary-general, and Abdoulaye Wade, the president of Senegal, who brokered the agreement.

The Sudanese government denies backing armed groups or supplying weapons to Chadian rebels who launched a failed assault last month on N'djamena, the Chadian capital.

Janjawid claims

Despite Thursday's peace deal, Janjawid militias have levelled allegations against Khartoum, saying the government had used the armed men in putting down a local rebellion.

In an interview with a British television company, Mohammed Hamdan, a Janjawid commander admitted for the first time that the weapons they used and the orders they followed had all come from the Sudanese government.

Hamdan said he had met al-Bashir in his home for orders to carry out campaigns in Darfur and that the government had given them cars and weapons.

The Sudanese government has yet to respond to the claims.

Rivalry

The peace pact is seen as a small step towards ending violence in Darfur.

However, on the same day, the Chadian government accused Sudan of launching "several heavily armed columns" against the country.

It said Chadian rebels based in Sudan had crossed into the border town of Moudeina to launch an offensive.

Sudan, meanwhile, has repeatedly accused Chad of supporting Darfur rebels.

According to the UN, there are about 470,000 refugees in eastern Chad including 250,000 from Darfur and 57,000 from the Central African Republic, as well as 180,000 internally-displaced Chadians.

Report: Chinese police fire tear gas at Tibetan Buddhist monk protesters

BEIJING: Chinese police used tear gas to disperse several hundred Tibetan Buddhist monks who gathered for a second day of protests near the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, U.S. government-funded Radio Free Asia reported Wednesday.

More than 1,000 armed police and security personnel surrounded an estimated 500 to 600 monks from the Sera monastery Tuesday as they marched near a police station, and police fired tear gas into the crowd, one witness told the RFA's Tibetan service.

Tibetan protests turn violent

Several shops and police cars have been set on fire in the centre of Lhasa, the Tibetan capital, as hundreds of people joined protests led by Buddhist monks against Chinese rule, official media and witnesses say. "Shops were set on fire in violence in downtown Lhasa on Friday afternoon," the Xinhua news agency reported.

A Tibetan woman at the scene said monks set police cars on fire after a demonstration near a small temple in Lhasa was stopped by police.

"The monks are still protesting. Police and army cars were burned. There are people crying," she said.

"Hundreds of people, including monks and civilians, are in the protest."

Tensions in Lhasa have increased in recent days as the city's three biggest monasteries were sealed off by thousands of soldiers and armed police amid the largest protests in nearly two decades.

Rights groups say this week's demonstrations were the biggest protests in Tibet since Chinese authorities declared martial law to quell a wave of pro-independence demonstrations by monks in 1989.

According to Radio Fee Asia (RFA), a US-funded radio service, the violence comes as Buddhist monks started a hunger strike and two others attempted suicide.

Protesters halt Senate business


By Alexander Bolton and J. Taylor Rushing Posted: 03/12/08 03:04 PM [ET]

Anti-war protesters shut down Senate proceedings momentarily Wednesday afternoon by chanting slogans that disrupted a debate over the budget resolution.

Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) was speaking on the Senate floor at 2:20 p.m. when the group began chanting, “We are from the National Campaign for Non-Violent Resistance” over and over.

Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad (N.D.), who was managing debate for the Democrats, asked the sergeant at arms to clear the disturbance.

U.S. Capitol Police officers removed at least 10 protesters from the Senate chamber after they shouted at lawmakers to stop funding the war in Iraq.

Most of the protesters wore what appeared to be cheesecloth over their faces, giving them a ghostly appearance.

"Stop the dying," chanted one protester.

Most of the protesters appeared to be middle-aged. One carried a cane and had to be helped along out of the chamber by a security officer.

Capitol Police ordered reporters to clear a hallway adjacent to the chamber. A tense exchange between Capitol Hill reporters and police ensued, with reporters questioning officers for keeping them from the scene.

That brought out Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance Gainer, who listened to Capitol reporters complain about being barred from witnessing how police handled the protesters.

Gainer said the episode "unfolded quick," and that blocking the press from covering the protest was "not the message" the Senate wanted to send. He called the press complaints "reasonable" and "point well-taken."

"I never would expect our officers to manage the press while they're engaged in their duty," Gainer said. "To the extent we were imperfect, we will try to improve."

The protest halted Senate proceedings for about 10 minutes. When calm was restored, senators resumed the budget debate.

Obstacles remain for Poland to accept U.S. missile shield plan

WARSAW, March 12 (Xinhua) -- During his recent visit to the United States, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk finally got the promise from U.S. President George W. Bush to help modernize the Polish military.

Poland has been yearning for the U.S. promise since the two countries resumed negotiations in January 2007 on a planned U.S. missile shield system, which includes ten missile interceptors to be deployed in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic.

However, despite the "breakthrough," Poland still faces many obstacles to give the green light to the deployment of a U.S. missile shield on its soil, analysts say.

DOMESTIC CONCERNS

A day after Tusk's meeting with Bush at the White House, Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich said Tuesday that the deployment of the U.S. missile defense system in Poland would depend on the country's security situation despite pledges by Washington to upgrade its military.

The minister said the Polish government is assessing whether the promised U.S. military aid can offset a possible security threat to Poland brought about by the deployment of the missile shield.

Klich said if Poland's national security should be undermined as a result of the scheme, the government will by no means ink a deal with the United States on the issue.

Out of security concerns, Poland has asked the U.S. to provide Patriot 3 or THAAD missiles and listed 17 areas of its military that the U.S. could help modernize. Poland has also asked for military aid worth several billion U.S. dollars.

Poland also wants to forge closer ties with the U.S., demanding a bilateral relationship similar to the one between the U.S. and Britain.

The Polish government's desire for such a hard bargain with the United States is also a response to the concerns of the Polish people.

According to opinion polls, the majority of the Polish people oppose the deployment of the missile shield in the country, saying it would place Poland in a dangerous situation.

THE RUSSIA ELEMENT

Another element that may deter Poland from signing a deal with the U.S. is Russia's vehement opposition to the missile shield system.

Russia has been arguing that the system would threaten Russian national security and pledged to carry out reprisals should it be deployed in eastern Europe.

Bilateral relations between Russia and Poland had been tense since November 2005, when Russia imposed an embargo on meat products from Poland, accusing Poland of presenting false veterinary certificates.

Poland responded by vetoing an EU proposal to launch negotiations with Russia on a new partnership deal.

With Tusk elected as Polish Prime Minister in November 2007, the Polish government said on several occasions it was willing to improve ties with Russia and lifted its veto on the EU-Russia partnership talks in mid February.

But despite signs projecting a better relationship, Poland may still face pressure from Russia on the missile shield issue, analysts said.

UNCERTAINTIES IN THE U.S.

Bush said his administration would work out a detailed plan to modernize the Polish military before his term expires in January, but analysts believe that to finish such a task within the time frame would be difficult.

Moreover, the huge Polish demand for weapons, military aid and closer ties may scare the U.S. government. Even if the Bush administration agrees, it might be stalled by the Democrat-controlled Congress.

A final agreement on the missile shield system between the two countries has been delayed several times since negotiations were resumed in January 2007, and Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said recently the talks would last for another several months before a deal is reached.

'Magic is over' for U.S., says French foreign minister

PARIS: Bernard Kouchner, the foreign minister of France and a longtime humanitarian, diplomatic and political activist on the international scene, says that whoever succeeds President George W. Bush may restore something of the United States' battered image and standing overseas, but that "the magic is over."

In a wide-ranging conversation with Roger Cohen of the International Herald Tribune at the launch of a Forum for New Diplomacy in Paris, Kouchner on Tuesday also held out the hope of talking with Hamas, the Palestinian faction that rules the Gaza Strip but has been ostracized by the West and by its Palestinian rival, Fatah, because it opposes peace talks with Israel and denies that Israel has a right to exist.

Asked whether the United States could repair the damage it has suffered to its reputation during the Bush presidency and especially since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, Kouchner replied, "It will never be as it was before."

"I think the magic is over," he continued, in what amounted to a sober assessment from one of the strongest supporters in France of the United States.

U.S. military supremacy endures, Kouchner noted, and the new president "will decide what to do - there are many means to re-establish the image." But even that, he predicted, "will take time."

Last night I heard Mike Malloy read this moving letter on the air.

A Letter to Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern, from 18-Year-Old Tucker


Article Date: 03/13/2008

By Tucker

The following letter was sent our way via a field director for Equality Florida. Eighteen year old Tucker attempted to deliver this letter to Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern after her hateful words comparing gays to terrorists, but was prevented from doing so by a highway patrol officer. As a result, Tucker's family members began circulating the letter in its entirety. Please be moved, as we were, by the powerful words of this remarkable young man.

Rep Kern:

On April 19, 1995 in Oklahoma City, a terrorist detonated a bomb that killed my mother and 167 others. Nineteen children died that day. Had I not had the chicken pox that day, the body count would've likely have included one more. Over 800 other Oklahomans were injured that day and many of those still suffer through their permanent wounds.

That terrorist was neither a homosexual nor was he involved in Islam. He was an extremist Christian forcing his views through a body count. He held his beliefs and made those who didn't live up to them pay with their lives.

As you were not a resident of Oklahoma on that day, it could be explained why you so carelessly chose words saying that the homosexual agenda is worse than terrorism. I can most certainly tell you through my own experience that is not true. I am sure there are many people in your voting district that laid a loved one to death after the terrorist attack on Oklahoma City. I kind of doubt you'll find one of them that will agree with you.

I was five years old when my mother died. I remember what a beautiful, wise and remarkable woman she was. I miss her. Your harsh words and misguided beliefs brought me to tears, because you told me that my mother's killer was a better person than a group of people who are seeking safety and tolerance for themselves.

As someone left motherless and victimized by terrorists, I say to you very clearly you are absolutely wrong. You represent a district in Oklahoma City and you very coldly express a lack of love, sympathy or understanding for what they've been through. Can I ask if you might have chosen wiser words were you a real Oklahoman that was here to share the suffering with Oklahoma City? Might your heart be a bit less cold had you been around to see the small bodies of children being pulled out of rubble and carried away by weeping firemen?

I've spent 12 years in Oklahoma public schools and never once have I had anyone try to force a gay agenda on me. I have seen, however, many gay students beat up and there's never a day in school that has gone by when I haven't heard the word f****t slung at someone. I've been called gay slurs many times and they hurt and I am not even gay so I can just imagine how a real gay person feels. You were a school teacher and you have seen those things too. How could you care so little about the suffering of some of your students?

Let me tell you the result of your words in my school. Every openly gay and suspected gay in the school were having to walk together Monday for protection. They looked scared. They've already experienced enough hate and now your words gave other students even more motivation to sneer at them and call them names. Afterall, you are a teacher and a lawmaker, many young people have taken your words to heart. That happens when you assume a role of responsibility in your community. I seriously think before this week ends that some kids here will be going home bruised and bloody because of what you said.

I wish you could've met my mom. Maybe she could've guided you in how a real Christian should be acting and speaking.

I have not had a mother for nearly 13 years now and wonder if there were fewer people like you around, people with more love and tolerance in their hearts instead of strife, if my mom would be here to watch me graduate from high school this spring. Now she won't be there. So I'll be packing my things and leaving Oklahoma to go to college elsewhere and one day be a writer and I have no intentions to ever return here. I have no doubt that people like you will incite crazy people to build more bombs and kill more people again. I don't want to be here for that. I just can't go through that again.

You may just see me as a kid, but let me try to teach you something. The old saying is sticks and stones will break your bones, but words will never hurt you. Well, your words hurt me. Your words disrespected the memory of my mom. Your words can cause others to pick up sticks and stones and hurt others.

Sincerely, Tucker

Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern Defends Leaked Anti-Gay Speech

INCREDIBLE Kern tries like most BIGOTS to defend her hate speech.

http://www.gaywired.com/NewsArticle.cfm?Section=66&id=18483&CFID=20250815&CFTOKEN=30181538


I’m not a writer but I’ll try to respond to Tucker. His letter moved me to tears and hope of a better world for his generation.

Dear Tucker,

I thought you deserved an apology from someone since Rep Sally Kern couldn’t.

I’m sorry you lost your mother. I’m sorry for all who had their lives forever changed on April 19, 1995.

The fact that Tim McVey was a Christian is a dirty little secret. A religious extremist not unlike Rep Sally Kern or those who brought down the towers in New York. Like the Arab world we too breed Religious Extremists, who will do whatever it takes to make peoples lives miserable as their own.

Religious extremists want to cause pain and fear and hatred, that’s how bigotry works. Bigotry would die out but they keep teaching it to the next generation.

There really isn’t much we can do for people like that except pray one day they actually hear the words of Jesus Christ and Mohammad. Somewhere in their primal monkey brains they didn’t hear love thy neighbor as yourself and judge not least yea be judged. We who have heard the message of tolerance and love must pass it on to others.

Tucker I hope you find a few kindred spirits who think like you and who will become lifelong friends. I think your Mother would want you to have some fun while your in college, don’t let people like Kern take from you all the happiness and love there is in the world.

Your Mother would be so very proud of you as I am right now after reading your letter. Good Luck Tucker your going to be a fantastic writer use your gift or writing to teach love and tolerance but don’t forget to search for the truth.

Sincerely, Tamara

Tuckers letter made me want to begin my own search for the truth.

Did agents bungle US terror bomb?



By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Junction City, Kansas and Andrew Gimson in Berlin

ANDREAS Strassmeir lives quietly with his parents in a well-to-do area of West Berlin. His father was once a top aide to German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. His brother is a city councillor. For seven years he served in the German army, at one point doing a tour of duty as a liaison officer with the Welsh Guards.

It is hard to imagine a more unlikely figure to surface in the drama of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the worst act of terrorism ever committed on US soil. But last week an Oklahoma couple, Glenn and Kathy Wilburn, announced that they were going to name Strassmeir, 36, in a lawsuit as a "US federal informant with material knowledge of the bombing". They say that Strassmeir became involved with the far-Right underworld when he lived with the Elohim City "Christian Identity" sect on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border from 1991 to 1995.

The Wilburns lost two grandchildren in the attack on the Alfred Murrah federal building, which killed 168 people including 19 children. After taping more than 300 hours of testimony in their own investigation, they have concluded that the government had prior knowledge of the blast.

The Aryan Republican Army, Elohim City,
and the OKC Bombing

"Don't ever forget Bob Mathews and don't ever forget the
'Order'... because that's what's gonna happen again
soon.... It's coming again!.... Revolution is coming!....
It's coming sooner than you think!"
-- Dennis Mahon, July, 1991, Aryan World Congress, Hayden

THE ORDER & THE ARYAN REPUBLICAN ARMY

=====================================


'The Order' will go down in history books as one of

the most violent and notorious domestic terrorist groups of

the 1980s. 'The Order' was founded in 1983 by Robert J.

Mathews, a recruiter for the neo-Nazi National Alliance and

an activist in the Aryan Nations. 'The Order' drew its

members from the National Alliance, Aryan Nations, and

various Klan splinter groups throughout the country.

Adopting a racist ideology and paranoid world-view, 'The

Order' began to commit acts of terrorism, robbery, fraud,

murder, and theft in an ongoing wave of crime that it's

members viewed as a revolution against the 'Zionist

Occupied Government.' Many of the hate-fueled terrorist

acts such as bombing federal buildings and murdering

minorities are described in William Pierce's novel The

Turner Diaries, the same book that Timothy McVeigh

allegedly used as a blueprint for the OKC Bombing. It's no

surprise that the author of the book is a prominent member

of the National Alliance.

WOW I found that last article AFTER I found this article which is dated 3/13/2008. Coincidence that they both touch on the same subject killing and expelling the Jews.


Russia ‘Shocked’ At US Plan To Expel Jews From North America


By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)

March 13, 2008

Russian Foreign Ministry Officials are reported to be in ‘shock’ over the secret summit agenda provided by the United States and meant to cover the agenda for the upcoming visit to Russia by the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and US Defense Secretary Robert Gates [both pictured top left with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov] over the American’s plan to install their missile shield in Eastern Europe.

According to these reports, under these proposed summit agenda guidelines, offered to Russia by the US, and labeled ‘Item 13’, the United States War Leaders are to seek Russia’s ‘cooperation’ in what the American’s are stating is their goal of ‘the efficient detention and removal to Israel of the entire Jewish population of North America’.

The current Jewish population in North America is estimated [2006] to be a little under 6 million, with the US having the largest number of Jews, 5.3 million, Canada having the second largest population with 373,500, and Mexico having the least with 39,800.

Russian Military Analysts point out in these reports that the United States believes it has ‘no choice’ but to deport their Jewish population as they face the disintegration of their economy, and which many of these analysts believe will lead to civil war upon the North American Continent, with the Jewish population, as always, being blamed, and as they were in Nazi Germany prior to the outbreak of World War II.

These analysts further state, in their reports, that with the collapse of the US economy, the United States War Leaders will have no other choice than to merge their Nation with Canada and Mexico to form a North American Union having a common currency, and which many believe will be called the Amero.

Not being understood by the American people themselves, and as long pointed out by Russian Historians, the West has long used the Jewish peoples as ‘scapegoats’ to further their aims of World conquest for their long-stated ambition to place upon our Earth a New World Order ruled by the families of the American and European elite, almost all able to trace their lineage back to the Royal Houses of Europe.

It is, also, interesting to note that the current ruling dynasty in the United States is the Bush Family, and whose past is firmly rooted in histories last great mass forced migration, and genocide, of Jewish peoples, the German Nazi Empire, and which we can read as reported by Britain’s Guardian News Service in their report titled "How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power", and which says:

"George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy."

Though the United States propaganda media organs have kept the brutal truth of the Fascist histories of leaders from their people, Russia, and its peoples, have long been aware of this new ‘master race’ of peoples, arising from the ashes of a destroyed World after World War II with their sites set upon total Global War and subjugation of all of Earth’s peoples to their will.

And, with the United States destruction of New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, who was positioned to become the first Jewish President of the US, the plan for the expulsion of Jews from North America appears to be accelerating.

It goes without saying, that our warnings to the Jewish peoples in North America will go unheeded, and as they were in 1923 when we issued our first warning to the Jews in Germany after Adolf Hitler’s failed coup d'état against the German Government, but, which earned him the support of the United States Industrialist Class, chief among them Henry Ford, and as we can read:

"During World War I, Henry Ford wrote a series of viciously anti-Semitic articles for The Dearborn Independent, which he then published in book form as a hate-filled diatribe against Jews called "The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem", which basically blamed Jews for all of the problems of the world. The International Jew is still reprinted and used and much admired by neo-Nazis and White Supremacists even today.

In the early 1920s, this book was published in Germany under the title The Eternal Jew. It reportedly had a major influence on Adolf Hitler, and he almost certainly plagiarized parts of it in Mein Kampf. The admiration was mutual. Following Hitler's assumption of power, Ford sent Hitler 50,000 Deutsch Marks every year on Hitler's birthday."

It is no wonder that the United States has destroyed the ability of their citizens to know the true history of our World, as these people are doomed to repeat the hard lessons learned from last centuries two World Wars, and which destroyed the lives of nearly 1 billion human beings.

And, perhaps, put most aptly in these reports by one astute Russian Military Analyst, and who stated, “It appears that the people of the United States will not know the truth of their government and military forces until they are destroyed at the gates of Jerusalem itself.”

Domestic Terrorism 101 - Elohim City
(Where All Roads Lead)
By Nicole Nichols

Nestled deep into the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in far Eastern Oklahoma, there is a compound of hate. Accessible only by a rocky road and a yellow steel bridge, Elohim City has been a base of operations for right wing terrorists for the last thirty years. Inhabited by anywhere from seventy to one-hundred people the guest list of Elohim City is a veritable "Who's Who" in the annals of hate, white supremacy and neo-Nazism.

For the average observer one might consider the residents no more than a little eccentric and their lifestyle a little cultish. The "cultish" part might be a little fitting. The religion that is practiced is one that has been adhered to by members of the Klan and Aryan Nations - Christian Identity - nothing more than a racist bastardization of Christian teachings. Those who practice Identity believe in a "seed-line" where Adam was not thefirst man but the first white man. They believe that all non-whites are mud-people and that Jews are the spawn of Satan.
