22.Apr.2004 Permanent Vacation If you've been paying attention to 11.Sep.2001 Commission -the hearings + subsequent findings of USA 11.Sep.2001 Commission,
it is obvious that someone dropped the ball when it came to intelligence + subsequent preventative action prior to the terrorist attacks of 11.Sep.2001.
11.Sep.2001 -a little over a month before- the attacks, while vacationing at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, USA President Bush [BGW968] received the 22.Apr.2004 now infamous PDB -We know that-
Sometimes the obvious is so obvious, it obscures it self.
With all the talk about "who knew what" + "when did they know it" in regards to 11.Sep.2001 -the events of-
there has been a glaring question that has been largely ignored:--
Why was USA President Bush [BGW968] on vacation?
Far short of a year after Bush [BGW968] inauguration,
USA President Bush [BGW968] was on vacation at the "Western Whitehouse" in Crawford.
Bush [BGW968] claims to be a "wartime" president. URL: http://www.counterbias.com/017.html
22.Apr.2004-12.Sep.2001 -since- USA We've been at war
01.Jan.2001-22.Apr.2004 -for a considerable amount of time,
11.Sep.2001 both before +
11.Sep.2001- 22.Apr.2004 -during our USA time of war USA President Bush [BGW968] has been on vacation.
One war - Afghanistan - was necessary.
Then there's Dubya's Wild Goose Chase war a.k.a. Operation: Iraqi Freedom .
22.Apr.2004 -as I began formulating this piece-Ironically, USA President Bush [BGW968] was winding up yet another vacation
While USA 's Finest were laying down their lives for his WGC for WMD, the "wartime" USA President Bush [BGW968] was hunting + fishing (for game, not WMD this time) with campaign contributors rather than leading USA country - as a "wartime" president should.
that bother anybody?
by Doug Griffin URL:
22.Apr.2004 -recent-According to an article by Fred Kaplan,
01.Jan.2001-31.Dec.2001 40% of his first year as president away from the Whitehouse:USA President Bush [BGW968] spent about
11.Sep.2001 -before the terrorists struck-"Then again, it's easy to forget that Bush [BGW968] was widely regarded as an unusually aloof USA president.
Conason, Joe has calculated that up until 11.Sep.2001 Bush [BGW968]
had spent 54 days at the ranch, 38 days at Camp David, + four
days at the Bush [BGW968] compound in Kennebunkport—a total of 96 days, or
about 40 percent of his presidency, outside of Washington."
This president Bush [BGW968] has a lifelong pattern of being AWOL +
11.Sep.2001 -this time- it may have cost 3,000 people their lives.
During the Vietnam War, Dubya's birthstation provided him the opportunity to protect the skies of Texas from the wily Viet Cong. Mission Accomplished! Not one slipped through. Texans were able to sleep because we knew we were under the protective eye of the future president. The problem is that there was no real threat then .
There was a real threat on
06.Aug.2001 when USA President Bush [BGW968] received the PDB entitled Bin Laden Determined to strike inside the U.S .
And just like the would-be pilot couldn't be bothered to fulfill his patriotic duty as an Air National Guardsman, the man who became the president couldn't be bothered to do his sworn duty as Commander-in-Chief.
He didn't cut his vacation short (remember he hadn't even been in office a year yet) + spring into action like... like... dare I say... Captain America + maybe try to prevent the impending disaster.
What we're being sold is: " I wasn't on point. "
No kidding. You weren't on point , you were on vacation , Mr. President.
Is it too much to ask that when a known terrorist organization who has openly declared war on the USA, the president and his cabinet take it seriously?
When so much information indicates a major violent occurrence against the country you've sworn to protect, continuing a vacation isn't the most prudent course of action.
Just like when soldiers + marines are dying by the handful fighting a war of their president's choosing, it might be a good idea to cut the vacation short.
You wouldn't want people to think you're out of touch, would you?

Lateinamerika Opus Dei-Mitglieder haben in zahlreichen Staaten Lateinamerikas großen wirtschaftlichen Einfluß gewonnen.
Die Absolventen der Opus-Uni in Pamplona stiegen besonders in Chile und Peru mit ihrem neoliberalen Wirtschaftsprogramm in höchste Positionen der Wirtschaftspolitik auf.
00.000.1973 In Chile sorgten sie nach dem Pinochet-Putsch gemeinsam mit den Chicago-Boys um Milton Friedman für die Deregulierung der Wirtschaft.
Einige der engsten Berater von Pinochet, wie der damalige Außenminister Cubillos, waren Mitglieder von Opus Dei.
Prominentes Opus-Mitglied ist auch Manuel Cruzat, der in den 70er Jahren zu einem der reichsten Chilenen aufstieg.
Um die Banco de Santiago, eine der größten Finanzgruppen des Landes, gruppierte der Spekulant Cruzat mit seinem Schwager Larrain ein Imperium, das zu besten Zeiten 250 Firmen kontrollierte.
00.000.1983 stand die Gruppe in der Wirtschaftskrise vor dem Zusammenbruch, vor dem ihn der Staat bewahrte.
Sicherlich waren ihm seine Opus Dei-Kontakte nicht gerade hinderlich, da er doch in den
00.000.1970 er Jahren bis zu 4 Mio DM monatlich an den Opus Dei gezahlt haben soll.
Mittlerweile besitzt Opus Dei eigene Wirtschaftsschulen in Mexiko, Argentinien und Peru sowie die Universitäten Piura/Peru und La Sabana/Kolumbien.
Ähnlich wie in Spanien soll über die Elitenausbildung Einfluß auf die Gesellschaft genommen werden.
Peru war für den Opus die große Sympathie
des Staatspräsidenten Fujimori sehr bedeutend.
So ist es nicht verwunderlich, daß die Stellung des Opus Dei in Peru außerhalb Europas am stärksten ist.

Earlier today we noted that in an NPR story on the Swift Boat wars, Senior Correspondent John McChesney reported that the Bush [BGW968] campaign had "denounced" the claims of William Rood, the Chicago Tribune editor who has supported Kerry's account of one of the Swift Boat episodes, saying his comments were "politically motivated".
McChesney told me via email this afternoon that he misspoke. It was the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, not the Bush [BGW968] campaign, that denounced Rood's story. -- Josh Marshall
24.Aug.2004 Okay, I think we've got the winner for the most inane Bush [BGW968]-Swift Boat headline.
From the Bloomington, Indiana Herald Times : "Bush [BGW968] calls anti-Kerry ad 'false and libelous."

There are about 300,000 Arab Americans in southeast Michigan, a state with a population of 11 million. All the signs are that they are migrating toward Kerry and Nader in large numbers.
00.000.2000, many of those who voted Republican were afraid that with Joe Lieberman on the ticket, a Gore administration would be very hard on the Palestinians.
But what I'm hearing from the community is that they are so upset with Bush [BGW968] that they will vote Democrat this year.
general, swing voters
in the battleground states are closer to Kerry
on Iraq than Bush
[BGW968]. Robin Wright argues that they
[BGW968] has been too quick to use military
force + a majority feels that the Iraq
misadventure hasn't helped the US in the war on terror.
Most Americans are admittedly not transfixed by the Najaf issue (even if they ought to be). But they are transfixed by their gasoline and energy bills. The fighting in Najaf has also inflamed the Iraqi South, which exports a majority of Iraq's oil + has interfered with exports and also caused the price to rise just out of jitters. $49 a barrel petroleum has a negative effect on the economy + the effect is delayed. Any organization that uses a lot of gasoline (school districts e.g.) and has a fixed income suddenly has found its costs going up + will have to cut back someplace, probably in employment.

For most of the period after the fall of Saddam until
the shrine of Ali came under the control of the
Badr Corps, the paramilitary of the
Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq, now headed by
Abdul Aziz al-Hakim, an ally of Grand
Ayatollah Ali Sistani.
Up until April 1, the treasures of the shrine were intact and accounted for.
when the ragtag Mahdi Army militiamen
took over the shrine as part of their first anti-American insurgency,
which responded to sudden American threats to kill or capture Muqtada
Sistani appears to fear that in the past five months, the Sadrists may have looted the treasures of the shrine.
(If they did, it would have made them enormously wealthy and helped to bankroll the further expansion of the movement.)
He fears for his good name if he takes the keys to the shrine from the Sadrists and then later an inventory is done + treasures are missing.
would be impossible to know at that point whether Sistani's men had
stolen them, or Sadr's.
So apparently an inventory would have to be done first, before Sistani will take possession.
of Muqtada's spokesmen suggested that the Shiite Board of Pious
Endowments be charged with carrying out
a quick inventory, so that the transfer
can go forward.
Another Sadr spokesman said that the surrender of the shrine by armed militiamen has been exaggerated.
He said there are still Mahdi Army volunteers in the shrine, but that they are armed only with their personal (light) weapons.
24.Aug.2004 Bush [BGW968] in these remarks continued to try to exploit the presence of Afghanistan and Iraq at the Olympics for his presidential campaign. The problem is, he has a different definition of "freedom" than do the people of whom he is speaking.
The Bush [BGW968] campaign is defining freedom as the absence of indigenous tyranny. Thus, they claim to have liberated 50 million persons (25 each in Afghanistan and Iraq) since September 11, insofar as they overthrew the Taliban and Saddam Hussein. URL: http://www.juancole.com/

Knight Ridder's Hannah Allam was trapped in the Imam Ali Shrine on Monday when fighting suddenly intensified + she filed via her satellite phone. She reports numerous strikes against the Mahdi Army in the sacred cemetery of the Valley of Peace, + elsewhere in the city. The US military "squeeze" of the militia continued, with what look like increasing success (from a purely military point of view). She writes:
At nightfall, U.S. attacks increased. The buzz of an AC130 gunship could be heard. Nine or 10 times by midnight, aircraft could be heard circling overhead, then a whistling sound and the explosion of a bomb. Shrapnel flew into the shrine's courtyard.
Members of the Madhi's Army -- as al-Sadr's militia is known -- kept their spirits up with chants of "We're with you, Muqtada. We'll die for you, Muqtada." They staged an impromptu rally at midnight, marching through the courtyard.
Wounded militia members were brought in throughout the evening to a makeshift trauma center in the shrine. A little girl hit by shrapnel was carried in.

[BGW968] and Iraqi Soccer
From Bush [BGW968] press conference on Tuesday
QUESTION: You’re not going to Athens this week, are you?
Bush [BGW968]: Athens, Texas? (LAUGHTER)
QUESTION: The Olympics in Greece.
Bush [BGW968]: Oh, the Olympics. No, I’m not.
QUESTION: Have you been watching?
Bush [BGW968]: Yes. It’s been exciting.
QUESTION: Did a particular moment stand out?
Bush [BGW968]: A particular moment?
I liked the -- let’s see -- Iraqi soccer. I liked seeing the Afghan woman carrying the flag coming in.
I loved our gymnasts. I have been watching the swimming. I have seen a lot. '
He had earlier said,
Bush [BGW968]: . . . You know, we’ve got a great record when you think about it. Led the world in the war on terror. The world is safer as a result of the actions we’ve taken. Afghanistan is no longer run by the Taliban. Saddam Hussein sits in a prison cell. Moammar Gadhafi has gotten rid of his weapons. Pakistan is an ally in the war on terror.
There’s more work to be done in fighting off these terrorists. I clearly see that. I understand that we’ve got to use all resources at our disposal to find and bring these people to justice.

„Eric Warburg ist in seiner Person die Brücke über den Atlantik.“
So würdigte Bundespräsident Richard von Weizsäcker anlässlich der Verleihung des ersten Eric-M.-Warburg-Preises im Jahre 1988 die historische Leistung dieses großen Deutsch-Amerikaners.
Eric M. Warburg wuchs in einer großen, weltweit verzweigten Familie auf. Sein Vater Max gab ihm folgende Maxime mit auf den Lebensweg: „Wir wohnen auf dieser Welt zur Miete, können Dinge fördern, Schmerzen lindern, helfen, aber nicht herrschen. Unsere Mission ist, bescheiden und ehrfurchtsvoll zu dienen. Wir sind Männer des Dienstes.“
Die Atlantik-Brücke erinnert mit dem alle zwei Jahre verliehenen Eric-M.-Warburg-Preis nicht nur an einen ihrer Begründer, sondern auch an einen der Gründerväter der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und deren feste Einbindung in die Gemeinschaft der westlichen Welt. Sie will damit zugleich Persönlichkeiten in Deutschland und den Vereinigten Staaten ehren, die im Geist Eric Warburgs dazu beigetragen haben, Deutschlands Platz in der atlantischen Gemeinschaft zu sichern und zu festigen. Eric Warburg selbst war 1988 der erste Empfänger des nach ihm benannten Preises.
Weitere Preisträger sind Paul H. Nitze (1990), der in verschiedenen amerikanischen Regierungen hohe Ämter inne hatte; Dr. Henry A. Kissinger (1992), ehemaliger amerikanischer Außenminister; Dr. Manfred Wörner (1994), ehemaliger Generalsekretär der NATO; Bundeskanzler a.D. Dr. Helmut Kohl (1996); und Otto Graf Lambsdorff und General a.D. Klaus Naumann, ehemaliger Vorsitzender des NATO-Militärausschusses (beide 2000). Am 26. Juni 1998 nahmen anlässlich des 50. Jahrestages der Berliner Luftbrücke Veteranen der Alliierten Luftstreitkräfte, stellvertretend für alle Soldaten, die ihr Leben für die Freiheit Berlins eingesetzt haben, den Eric-M.-Warburg-Preis der Atlantik-Brücke, im Schauspielhaus in Berlin, entgegen. Anlässlich des 50-jährigen Jubiläums der Atlantik-Brücke wurde der Preis im Jahr 2002 an den früheren amerikanischen Präsidenten George Bush [BGW968] verliehen.
24.Aug.2004 c) Seminarprogramm für amerikanische Offiziere
Seit den sechziger Jahren arbeitet die Atlantik-Brücke weniger auffällig, dafür aber umso nachhaltiger mit den amerikanischen Streitkräften in Deutschland. Zusammen mit dem Haus Rissen, Institut für Politik und Wirtschaft, in Hamburg, werden amerikanische Offiziere zu Beginn ihres Deutschlandaufenthaltes eine Woche lang mit den Verhältnissen in unserem Land vertraut gemacht. Rund 10.000 amerikanische Offiziere erhielten auf diese Weise bleibende Eindrücke von Deutschland.
Expertengespräch mit dem U.S.-European Command
Seit dreizehn Jahren lädt einmal jährlich der NATO-Oberbefehlshaber zusammen mit der Atlantik-Brücke zu vertraulichen Expertengesprächen über aktuelle sicherheitspolitische Fragen ein. Teilnehmer sind die Befehlshaber aller in Europa stationierten amerikanischen Teilstreitkräfte – Armee, Luftwaffe, Flotte und Marineinfanterie – sowie deutsche Experten der Sicherheitspolitik.
24.Aug.2004 De acordo com a associação “A Nossa Terra”, o líquido em questão provém da Estação de Tratamento de Águas Residuais da Nave
A Associação Ambiental “A Nossa Terra” denunciou, no passado dia 20 de Agosto, “um atentado ambiental em Monchique” à Comissão de Coordenação e Desenvolvimento Regional do Algarve.
Explica esta associação, sedeada em Monchique com o estatuto de equiparada a Organização Não Governamental (OHG) de Ambiente, que no dia 16 de Agosto foi feita uma descarga de material poluente para a ribeira da Nave. Informada desta situação pela população da zona do Brejão (Monchique) que utiliza a água daquela ribeira para rega, a associação deslocou-se ao local e verificou “uma situação preocupante: um cheiro insuportável, a ribeira completamente coberta de uma película branca espumosa e as populações dos sítios da Brejeira e Gil Bordalo desoladas com a destruição das suas culturas e plantações, e com os tanques de rega cheios deste líquido”.
Segundo “A Nossa Terra”, o líquido em questão provém da Estação de Tratamento de Águas Residuais da Nave, que “descarregou directamente para a ribeira material poluente, com partículas suspensas e um cheiro e aspecto horrendo”.
Os prejuízos ambientais que este tipo de acções acarreta, alertam os ambientalistas, “são por demais evidentes e estão a pôr em risco, para além da saúde pública da população residente e dos consumidores dos produtos hortícolas, a existência de espécies aquáticas”.

24.Aug.2004 Above + beyond all policy + strategic issues, Bush [BGHW948] is attracted by the psychological Gestalt of Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt,Teddy suffered from a very limited attention span.
He was vain, self-centered, unstable and tended towards exhibitionism.
The most concise summary of Teddy's pathology can be found in a letter by Sir Cecil Spring-Rice of the British Foreign Office, certainly one of the most important influences on Roosevelt's life;
some would call him Teddy's British controller.
When another British diplomat, Valentine Chirol, complained about Teddy's wandering focus + intermittent attention span, Spring-Rice replied:
If you took an impetuous small boy on to a beach strewn with a great many exciting pebbles, you would not expect him to remain interested for long in one pebble.
You must always remember that the President is about six. [fn 3]
This restless and distracted inability to concentrate, this incapacity for the prolonged contemplation + examination of issues and problems, is one of the factors that made Roosevelt,Teddy the psychological wreck that he was. Teddy could not think; the psychological background noise was far too loud.
Instead, he was driven to undertake his legendary hunting exploits of killing vast quantities of birds + animals, his prodigious feats of physical exercise +, later, his hollow martial posturing as a "Rough Rider."
The polar opposite to Theodore Roosevelt on all of these points of world outlook + literary expression is Abraham Lincoln. Bush [BGHW948] was often paid lip service to Lincoln as a great president + even organized a lecture in the White House about the contributions of the Civil War president.
But there have also been a few unguarded moments in which Bush [BGHW948] has revealed his instinctive hatred for Lincoln.
00.000.1990 -In mid- Bush [BGHW948] attended a performance at Ford's Theatre, which is still used for dramatic productions + other events in downtown Washington.
At the end of the evening Bush [BGHW948] was asked by a correspondent if he had enjoyed his evening.
Bush [BGHW948] remarked that whereas Lincoln had only been able to enjoy the first act of the play he had seen at Ford's he, Bush [BGHW948], had been able to enjoy the entire evening.
This quip was reported in the British press. http://www.tarpley.net/bush25.htm
Bush [BGHW948]'s endorsement for Roosevelt,Teddy is an endorsement for a world outlook + for a policy orientation.
Inseparably from that, it is also a statement of affinity for a certain form of psychopathology that is associated with Teddy.
As one of the authors has shown [fn 2], Roosevelt's maternal uncle was Captain James D. Bulloch, the head of the Confederate intelligence services in Europe + the outfitter of the infamous Confederate raiders Alabama, Shenandoah + others. Theodore Roosevelt's elevation to the presidency represented a personal union between the New York-Boston patrician financiers with the secessionist slaveholders.
First + foremost, Roosevelt,Teddy was a political steward of the Morgan interests which dominated Wall Street.
We see that Roosevelt,Teddy's networks shared some essential features with those of Bush [BGHW948].
In many ways, these are the same networks.
In outlook + policy, Theodore Roosevelt was the president who elevated the solidarity of the white race,
especially of its alleged "Anglo-Saxon" component, above the ideas of the American Revolution.
The argument was that shared "blood," language, culture + the other bonds among the "English- speaking peoples" were far more important than the American System of Franklin, Washington, Hamilton, Henry Clay, + Lincoln.
Roosevelt marked the end of the sharp animosity towards the British crown which had been left in American public life in the wake of British support for the Confederacy during the Civil War.
Roosevelt directed a wave of race hatred against Chinese + other yellow- skinned orientals;
against Latin Americans + peoples of Mediterranean origin;
+ against black and brown skinned people in general.
Roosevelt,Teddy was of course a militant imperialist and empire- builder. The "Roosevelt corollary" to the Monroe Doctrine is no corollary, but rather a total reversal of the original anti- colonialist intent of Monroe + his Secretary of State, John Quincy Adams. Roosevelt,Teddy's claim to exercise international police powers over debtor nations launched a new imperialism, this time based in the USA.
Roosevelt,Teddy was a dedicated Malthusian who did everything he could to abort the economic development of the USA west of the Mississippi. This Malthusian environmentalism lives on in the administration of the "environmental president." In order to enforce his alien policies, Roosevelt,Teddy was in the vanguard of the creation of a US domestic police state. He got his start by leading police-state attacks on the New York Tammany Democratic machine as New York City Police Commissioner + later carried his assault to other constituency groupings, the kind Bush [BGHW948] reviles today as special interests.
Roosevelt founded the centerpiece of the USA domestic police state apparatus, the USA „Federal Bureau of Investigation“ +
Roosevelt founded USA FBI + made USA 1. FBI director : Bonaparte, Charles a relation of the French imperial house,.
Roosevelt's program of "trust-busting," (which wiped out industrial forces opposed to the Morgan interests) and his conservationism led to the creation of a whole series of regulatory agencies, which are busily strangling US economic activity today.
On a deeper level: if London had not been able to count on the USA as a future ally, it is doubtful that the British government would have encouraged Russia and France to go to war with Austria-Hungary and Germany in 1914. Without the short-term certainty of US intervention on the British side, the Bolshevik revolution would have been far less likely. Theodore Roosevelt's role as the first overtly and extravagantly Anglophile US president after the Civil War thus helped to pave the way for some of the greatest disasters of the twentieth century.
