Sunday  10/19/03

topFraudsters on the streets of Lagos  10/19/03 BBC: "The whole drama of this fraud begs a simple question. Why go to all that trouble, why create an incredible story, rather than simply pick a pocket or snatch a bag? I don't know the answer. But what I do know is I was treated to a marvellous, creative piece of street theatre, albeit with a mercenary purpose."

DELAYED REACTION  10/18/03 Counterspin: "The well-known to Bush critics story about how Dubyah's Grandfather, Prescott Bush, had a connection to the Nazis has busted out into the mainstream media...thanks to the recent declassification of government documents."

Friday  10/17/03

topBush Ancestor's Bank Seized by Gov't  10/17/03 AP: "President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show."

Candidates woo Arab-Americans - Conference in Detroit suburb draws attention  10/17/03 Atlanta Journal Constitution: but an NAACP conference in NC draws only 6 democratic candidates: "Eight of the nine Democratic candidates are scheduled to speak at "Vote 2004: An Agenda for Peace and Justice." Former Montana Gov. Marc Racicot, national chairman of Bush-Cheney '04, also is expected to speak, as is Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the Democratic National Committee."

Sick, Wounded U.S. Troops Held in Squalor  10/17/03 Common Dreams: "Hundreds of sick and wounded U.S. soldiers including many who served in the Iraq war are languishing in hot cement barracks here while they wait -- sometimes for months -- to see doctors. The National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers' living conditions are so substandard, and the medical care so poor, that many of them believe the Army is trying push them out with reduced benefits for their ailments. One document shown to UPI states that no more doctor appointments are available from Oct. 14 through Nov. 11 -- Veterans Day."

Documents: Bush's Grandfather Directed Bank Tied to Man Who Funded Hitler  10/17/03 Fox News: "President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show." This story curiously limits the facts in the case.

God's general set on terrorists  10/17/03 Sydney Morning Herald: "Lieutenant-General William "Jerry" Boykin, the new deputy under secretary of defence for intelligence, has made it clear that he sees the war on terrorism as a clash between Judeo-Christian values and Satan… Of his role in the battle against a Muslim warlord in Somalia, he told another audience: "I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol." Last year, he said: "We in the army of God, in the house of God, kingdom of God, have been raised for such a time as this." He has also said of President George Bush: "He's in the White House because God put him there." "

topIsrael "very happy" after US House votes to sanction Syria  10/16/03 AFP 

Tenn. Court Dismisses MLK Rifle Appeal  10/16/03 AP: "A Tennessee appeals court has thwarted an attempt by the brother of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassin to obtain the rifle purported to have killed the civil rights leader. Jerry Ray has been trying to obtain the .30-06-caliber hunting rifle since James Earl Ray died five years ago. He and King's family say they doubt the rifle was the murder weapon and contend James Earl Ray was the fall guy for a murder conspiracy."

The Global Redlining of America  10/16/03 Black Commentator: "The previously unthinkable is now on the table. Russia, the world’s second largest oil exporter, is giving serious consideration to trading its black gold in euros, a switch that would surely set dominos in motion among other oil producing nations and, ultimately, knock the dollar off its global throne."

Students, Nuns and Sailor-Mongers, Beware  10/16/03 LA Times: "It has lain dormant in the darkest recesses of American law for 125 years, but this month Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft introduced critics of the administration to his latest weapon in law enforcement. In a Miami federal court, the attorney general charged the environmental group Greenpeace under an obscure 1872 law originally intended to end the practice of "sailor-mongering," or the luring of sailors with liquor and prostitutes from their ships. Ashcroft plucked the law from obscurity to punish Greenpeace for boarding a vessel near port in Miami. Not only is the law being used to prosecute one of the administration's most vocal critics in an unprecedented attack on the 1st Amendment, but it appears to be part of a broader campaign by Ashcroft to protect the nation against free speech, a campaign that has converted environmentalists into "sailor-mongers" and nuns into terrorists."

New Book Marks 40th Anniversary of Kennedy Assassination with First-Person Accounts from Journalists Who Were There  10/16/03 US Newswire: press release from publisher, cites respectfully the 6th Floor Museum, who oddly wound up with copyrights to what is being called amassive hoax, the Zapruder film.

U.S. policy on undermining Black leaders, the Black community and Afrika  10/15/03 SF Bay View: "Sundiata is a political prisoner, a brilliant mathematician, artist and committed freedom fighter for the New Afrikan Nation. Keep your eyes and ears open for updated information on Sundiata’s most recent parole efforts, as we must answer the call and support! Sundiata submitted the following document for Black August. It was not received at the Bay View in time for publication in August, and so, in honor of Sundiata’s legendary service in the Black Panther Party, we saved it for Black Panther History Month. Here is National Security Council Memorandum-46, an official policy statement issued in 1978 during the Carter administration of U.S. policy on undermining Black leaders, the Black community and Afrika:"

Dallas plans series of events to mark 40th anniversary of JFK's assassination  10/14/03 Knight Ridder: "Artifacts including a Kennedy Center inaugural program and an unused ticket from the center's first production, Leonard Bernstein's ``Mass,'' went on display at the Sixth Floor Museum, which has become a focal point for information about JFK in Dallas… On Nov. 21, historians, journalists and members of the Kennedy administration will gather for a symposium to discuss the slain president's life and legacy. The event is closed to the public, but a public broadcast is expected on C-SPAN." The Museum is an ardent, well funded proponent of the lone nut coverup, and holds the copyright to the Zapruder film.

Racism, Anger Up Blood Pressure in Blacks  10/14/03 Reuters: "U.S. researchers found that African Americans who said they believed they had encountered a lot of racism over the course of their lives showed higher daytime blood pressure levels than blacks who said they had less experience with racism. Furthermore, African Americans who said they often held back feelings of anger tended to show a smaller drop in blood pressure that normally occurs during nighttime."

Farah hosts 'Triangle of Death' author Brad O'Leary to discuss compelling evidence in Kennedy assassination  10/14/03 World Net Daily: ""Triangle of Death," which is subtitled "The Shocking Truth about the Role of South Vietnam and the French Mafia in the Assassination of JFK," presents shocking evidence of a complicated web of complicity implicating not Lee Harvey Oswald in the 1963 killing, but rather a conglomerate of conspirators. The book is based on recently declassified federal documents, material supplied by the KGB, information from the Bonano crime family, documents obtained from a French court and the only interview done with a French witness previously only debriefed by the FBI and CIA."

To allow citizens to submit intelligence about government-related issues, while maintaining their anonymity. To allow members of the government a chance to participate in the process."

Citizens strike back in intelligence war  10/13/03 New Scientist: "With the recent demise of the Bush administration's controversial Terrorist Information Awareness (TIA) programme to monitor everyone in the US, citizens now have a chance to get their own back. A website to be launched later in 2003 will allow people to post information about the activities of government organisations, officials and the judiciary. The two MIT researchers behind the project face one serious problem: how to protect themselves against legal action should any of the postings prove false. The answer, they say, is to borrow a technique from the underground music-swapping community."
