07.Aug.2004 Playing politics with terror warnings: A timeline -The Bird- "Many thanks to some diligent researchers from the Democratic Underground website for digging up this information.

It leaves little doubt that there is indeed a direct correlation between news that is unfavorable to USA Bush [BGW968] administration + the bogus terror alerts that have been issued over the last few years.

So here is the compiled evidence:...All of these alerts are a mystery to Americans.

There is nothing we can do with such information.

They have served no purpose, other than to throw unfounded fear into Americans.

07.Aug.2004 -Now- it appears as though there is a second purpose - that of the administration changing unpleasant + embarrassing topics of conversation among USA American people." (8/9)

06.Aug.2004 -on Thursday Clinton on the Five Threats Facing USA "Clinton, Bill said in a radio interview that the Bush [BGW968] administration had made a grave mistake by turning USA security with regard to al-Qaeda over to Pakistan while concentrating its own efforts on a low-level threat like Iraq.

The former president listed the security threats to the USA

11.Sep.2001 -after- security threats to the USA in order of importance, as follows:

1. Al Qaeda;

2. Middle East bloodshed (i.e. the Arab-Israeli conflict);

3. The India-Pakistan conflict (i.e. Kashmir);

4. North Korea's nuclear programme;

5. Iraq...That Clinton listed Iraq # 5 indicates how obsessed the USA power elite in Washington is with Iraq.

Saddam Hussein's regime was toothless as far as threatening the USA is concerned + surely it does not deserve to be rated that high in fall 2001 ."   (8/9)

05.Aug.2004 These Are Their Ends -Tom Paine- "Publicly, President Bush [BGW968] offered four rationales to justify USA Iraq invasion:

the presence of WMD, Iraqi collaboration with Al Qaeda, the possibility of giving WMD to Al Qaeda + bringing democracy to Iraq.

00.Mar.2003-05.Aug.2004 -Since-USA Iraq invasion, numerous USA commissions have shown the first three to be plainly false.

The lack of post-war planning, the elevation of Iyad Allawi + the pervasive corruption among USA-funded contractors has put the lie to the fourth rationale.

So just why did Bush [BGW968] choose war?

05.Aug.2004 -today- From the evidence before us, there is no one single reason.

Rather, there are three converging + tightly interwoven reasons: USA oil + Israel + USA military transformation.

USA Cheney energy strategy required Iraqi oil; {TO BE DESTROYED --> ROCKEFELLER -->}

USA Project for the New American Century + USA Christian right wanted to weaken the Arab world to strengthen Israel; +

Don Rumsfeld wanted to expedite the transformation of the USA military." (8/9) Paul Krugman: What About Iraq?, New York Times

11.Aug.2004 Time to get out the Bush [BGW968],  San Francisco Chronicle -"You know it's time for a serious change when the president of the USA actually mutters the infantile, instantly infamous line,

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful + so are we.

They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country + our people, + neither do we „ ...

And you know it's time for a change when not a single one of the rigid + spiritually curdled military yes men standing around the ceremonial signing table,

those sad automatons with their wooden smiles + stiff spines + bone-dry souls, not one broke into a hysterical bout of sad, suicidal laughter,

followed by uncontrolled wailing + the rending of flesh + the muttering of oh my freaking God what the hell is this man doing as leader of the free world...

There are signs + indicators.

There are feelings + intuitions.

There is that undeniable tang in the air, that clenching of the cultural colon, that cringe in the collective soul.

Something has got to give.

A USA national shakeup is more than imminent -- it is desperately, urgently needed. +

Bush [BGW968] is just about finished. Don't you feel it?

The sensation that USA country cannot continue to careen down this ultraviolent, antihumanitarian path much longer without implosion + desperation +

a massive increase in sedative prescriptions for anyone with an even slightly intuitive sense of justice + future + long hot sighs of hope?

You're not alone."   (8/12)

09.Aug.2004 The Writing on the Latrine Walls -truthout- "It was two years ago that talk about invading Iraq began to circulate.

Reasons for the invasion were bandied about - they had weapons of mass destruction, they had a hand in 11.Sep.2001 they will welcome us as liberators - but

it was not until USA Project for the New American Century got dragged into the discussion that an understanding of the true motives behind all this became apparent. . . .

The goals codified in 'Rebuilding USA America's Defenses,' the manifesto, can be boiled down to a few sentences:

The invasion + occupation of Iraq, for reasons that had nothing to do with Saddam Hussein.

The building of several permanent military bases in Iraq, the purpose of which are to telegraph force throughout the region.

The takeover by Western petroleum corporations of Iraq's nationalized oil industry {TO BE DESTROYED --> ROCKEFELLER -->} .

The ultimate destabilization + overthrow of a variety of regimes in the Middle East, friend + foe alike, by military or economic means, or both.{ }" (8/12) 
Padilla redux: Arbitrary imprisonment a symbol of tyranny -Counter Punch- "By refusing to hear the Padilla case USA Supreme Court condemned an innocent man to continued incarceration

without any opportunity to challenge the terms of his detention.

USA Supreme Court refusal serves as a de facto guilty verdict + overturns the 00.000.12---00.Aug.2004 -long held principle „HABEAS CORPUS“ of "innocent until proven guilty."

Additionally, their USA Supreme Court ruling reinforces the muddled position of the Bush [BGW968] Administration that prisoners in the apocryphal „war on terror“ can be dispatched as "unlawful combatants";

the spurious rhetoric that is without any legal meaning. . . .

It is impossible to overstate the significance of the Padilla case.

By any objective standard, the Padilla case is the most important case in the history of the USA Supreme Court .

This is no exaggeration.

What makes it so extraordinary is that, in its essence, it does not merely deal with "what rights citizens have" or "what the parameters of those rights are" but, whether or not citizens have rights at all.' " (8/12)

12.Aug.2004 How Bush [BGW968] Got (and Lost) Bush [BGW968] Wings -CounterPunch- "Bush [BGW968] didn't want to remain a lowly private or corporal in those drab uniforms.

Bush [BGW968] saw himself as officer material.

Yet, Bush [BGW968] had no desire to subject himself to the mental + physical rigors of Officer Candidate School.

In his mind, he was a birthright officer.

And so it came to be.

After a mere six weeks of training, Bush [BGW968] was promoted to the rank 2nd Lieutenant.

Bush [BGW968] didn't even have his pilot's license...

Bush [BGW968] is scheduled to take his required flight physical, which will for the first time include a drug test.

Bush [BGW968] fails to show up.

Failure to take a flight physical is grounds for immediate suspension of his pilot's license...

The flight physical was a mandatory requirement of service...

Bush [BGW968] was sent a letter commanding him to appear before USA Flying Evaluation Board to explain why he had refused to take the medical exam.

Bush [BGW968] never responded.

At this point, Bush [BGW968] was not only AWOL, but in breach of two direct orders....

In order to escape service in Vietnam, he had exploited his Bush family's political connections to secure a choice spot in USA Texas Air National Guard, despite failing his pilot aptitude test.

Though a blatant act of patronage, Bush [BGW968] was promoted to officer status before he earned his pilot's license + without going to officer training school.

Bush [BGW968] refused to take his mandatory flight physical + also refused to show up for a mandatory evaluation.

Bush [BGW968] went AWOL for a year and a half and then requested + received an early discharge."

13.Aug.2004 "Bush [BGW968]'s War Stories Simply Don't Fly" BuzzFlash 8/16)

13.Aug.2004 Citizens for Honest Fighter Pilots Ask Bush [BGW968] to Get Honest,  BuzzFlash ,

"When Bush [BGW968] joined the guard, he said he had a goal of 'making flying a lifetime pursuit,' and signed a document stating,'"I understand that I may be ordered to active duty for a period not to exceed 24 months for unsatisfactory participation.' Yet, even under the threat of being placed on active duty, he failed to show up. Bush [BGW968] 1972 suspension order states: 'Verbal orders of the Comdr on 1 Aug 72 suspending 1STLT George W. Bush [BGW968] ... from flying status are confirmed ... Reason for Suspension: Failure to accomplish annual medical examination. Off will comply with para 2-10, AFM 35-13'...Two retired generals say it is unheard of for a pilot to miss a flight physical + not be investigated."

21.Aug.2004 Do you have a gut feeling that things are not quite right in the world today - that America is in decline just as the Roman Empire was centuries ago? Do you know anyone who doesn't? (You probably do.) Most conscious folks do sense that liberty and freedom are inexorably being swallowed up by unseen forces.
The purpose of this "little book" is to lead you to the truth of our current situation and to help you understand why you have been "in the dark". As you journey through our tome by clicking on the button and text links, you will begin to realize that you have been deliberately kept from
TRUTH , lied to by the government, media + your elected politicians. You will discover that the corporate structure of your state and country have deceived you. (Enron is not the only outrageously fraudulent corporation)
You will discover that your elected government operates within two domains - a corporation (look up the definition of
USA in any law dictionary) + a constitutional REPUBLIC. You will discover many truths that may change your life forever. Once you learn the truth about WHO YOU ARE, you will be able to find the remedies to reclaim what you have lost.
You will learn why our education system produces very ignorant citizens - it is not by accident. The biggest failure is that the talent of learning to
THINK is neglected. You will learn the difference between a sovereign free human being and a corporate fiction slave. You will discover why wars occur and how they are linked to the banking industry, how our courts operate and how they are supposed to operate (BIG difference).
Our "courts", which once defended our individual rights, have turned the pursuit of justice into a mission of using statutes to take our property for the benefit of the state. See
USA Legal History if you find this hard to swallow.
Spend the time to carefully digest this "little book" and you will eventually KNOW what is broken and HOW to fix it. This applies to your own domain as well as your country's.
People who believe that
freedom is free are lost souls. Freedom was never free + never will be. One of the most disheartening truths today is the extreme gullibility of the American people to the point that even when confronted with facts, the lies are believed rather than the facts. This is not only with respect to the propaganda put forth by the government controlled media, but also in regards to the denial of statutes that state clearly (rare) to whom “laws” apply. The purpose of this website is to correct this little flaw - to succeed where our education system fails. Sheeple get what they deserve and so do sovereigns.

Nonetheless, it is reasonable to expect that despite endeavors at risk

+ prevention the system may fail in some instances, triggering vicious cycles + all the associated contagion for innocent bystanders.

A backup source of international financial support provided only with agreed conditions to address underlying problems, the task assigned to the IMF, can play an essential stabilizing role.

The availability of such support must be limited because its size cannot be expected to expand at the pace of the international financial system.

I doubt if there will be worldwide political support for that.

The policy conditionality, associated principally with IMF lending, which dictates economic + financial discipline + structural change, helps to mitigate some of the moral hazard concerns.

Such conditionality is also critical to the success of the overall stabilization effort.

Convincing a sovereign nation to alter destructive policies that impair its own performance + threaten contagion to its neighbors is best handled by an international financial institution, such as the IMF.

27.Feb.1998 February 27, 1998 Remarks by Chairman Alan Greenspan
Risk management in the global financial system URL:
-Before the Annual Financial Markets Conference of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Miami Beach, Florida

It is a pleasure to address this conference on risk management once again.

The conference has consistently been an interesting + constructive one.

I regret that I cannot attend in person.

As I have noted previously-+, indeed, as is evident to everyone who attends a conference like this-

-the global financial system has been evolving rapidly in recent years.

New technology has radically reduced the costs of borrowing + lending across traditional national borders, facilitating the development of new instruments + drawing in new players.

One result has been a massive increase in capital flows.

Information is transmitted instantaneously around the world +

huge shifts in the supply + demand for funds naturally follow.

This burgeoning global system has been demonstrated to be a highly efficient structure that has significantly facilitated cross-border trade in goods + services + accordingly, has made a substantial contribution to standards of living worldwide.

Its efficiency exposes + punishes underlying economic weakness swiftly + decisively.

Regrettably, it also appears to have facilitated the transmission of financial disturbances far more effectively than ever before.

The crisis in Mexico several years ago was the first such episode associated with our new high-tech international financial system.

27.Feb.1998 The current Asian crisis is the second.

We do not as yet fully understand the new system's dynamics. We are learning fast + need to update + modify our institutions + our practices to reduce our the risks inherent in the new regime.

27.Feb.1998 -This morning- I should like to offer an analysis of the origins +

I should like to offer an analysis of the nature of the Asian crisis +

I should like to offer an analysis of some implications for risk management - with respect both to systemic risk +

with respect to the risks facing individual financial firms.

Under the presumption that such prices stick near current levels, the outlook is worrisome, to say the least.   Just as the previous three oil price disturbances led to recession, there is good reason to fear a similar outcome in 2005.   For an unbalanced world that has run out of policy stimulus, there can be no mistaking the mounting perils of another energy shock.“
For the USA -- the world’s largest consumer of energy -- Dick Berner calculates that energy consumption per unit of GDP has fallen by 46% over the past three decades.   Similar results are evident in other major industrial economies -- especially Germany , the UK , Canada , Italy + Japan .   With conservation leading to sharply improved energy efficiency, there seems to be good reason to temper any concerns over oil shocks.   Yet that view hasn’t worked out very well over time.   Since OPEC I, each successive energy shock has still managed to spark recessions in the industrial world -- despite meaningful progress on the conservation front. In large part, that’s because of the reasons noted above -- namely, that it doesn’t take much to tip an already vulnerable economy into recession.  

There’s one other key element of the conservation story.   For every developed country that is reducing the energy content of its GDP, there is rapid growth in the energy-guzzling Chinas and Indias of the developing world.   According to the International Energy Agency, in 2002, China’s oil intensity -- primary oil consumption per unit of GDP -- was 2.3 times that of the average OECD developed country; India is even worse -- fully 2.9 times the OECD average.   Little wonder that China , which makes up slightly less than 4% of world GDP, accounted for fully 7% of the world’s crude oil consumption in 2003.   In that same vein, the emerging China slowdown would seem to provide some relief to world oil demand.   However, given the nation’s widespread energy shortages, in conjunction with its recent indications to start building a strategic petroleum reserve, any cyclical curtailment in Chinese oil demand might be surprisingly limited.   It may well be that globalization is an inherently energy-intensive endeavor -- suggesting that world oil markets might enjoy little relief from ongoing conservation efforts in the developed world.“

At work, in my view, is a classic “geopolitical angst premium” - dominated by uncertainties in Iraq + Russia + Venezuela , along with concerns about terrorism + the Israeli-Palestinian struggle.  

Add to that a tight supply-demand balance - especially for refined petroleum products - + this oil price run-up has

all the characteristics of the disruptive shocks of

the past.   „

„That same argument, of course, paints an equally compelling picture of the potential for a sharp decline in oil prices.“  

„Relief on the geopolitical-tension front could certainly change supply expectations + „Relief on the geopolitical-tension front could certainly quickly take oil prices a good deal lower.  

„How much lower is anyone’s guess.“  

The case for reduced geopolitical angst is also anyone’s guess.“  


right now, all we know is that the oil price is high enough to make a real difference to a vulnerable USA + global economy.  

If today’s surge miraculously turns into nothing more than a momentary spike, then the downside to the global economy will be both contained + brief.  

It sure doesn’t feel that way at the moment, but stranger things have happened.  

Whatever the outcome, the macro conclusions are relatively straight-forward :

Growth optimists need oil prices back in the $30 range.  

Growth pessimists draw support when oil is the $40 range.“

?   „Of course, not all oil shocks are alike.“  

History also tells us that a supply disruption hurts { } far more than an increase in the oil price stemming from an increase in demand.“ URL:
The current recovery in the USA economy has been the most anemic on record. „ 

„While there was a policy-induced spurt of 5 % real GDP growth from 2Q03 to 1Q04, gains in the other seven quarters of this upturn have averaged only 2.2 %.“  

„Moreover, the renewed slowing to a 3 % pace in 2Q04 masks a 1 % gain in real personal consumption expenditures - matching the weakest quarterly performance since early 00.000.1995 .“  

„In my view, USA ’s saving-short, overly-indebted, job- + income-constrained consumer looks as vulnerable as ever.„ 

Add to that the ever-mounting perils of outsize twin deficits + there is good reason to believe that an inherently vulnerable USA economy could be hit hard by another oil shock.“ URL:

During WWI a few anarchists — most prominently, Peter Kropotkin — issued a "Manifesto" in support of the Allies; most anarchists opposed choosing between oppressors, & Malatesta was a prominent opponent of Kropotkin & the few other signatories to the Manifeste des sieze (Manifesto of the 16).

00.Nov.1914 In a letter called, "Anarchists have forgotten their principles" , Malatesta wrote:

"...there will be no definite victory on either side.
