Cannon Fodder

With July 4th just around the corner, I wonder just what type of celebrations we will have. The war against terrorism in Afghanistan which is almost as far away as Vietnam is now in it's what; 9th or 10th year. What is being accomplished? How can parents condoned sending their sons to fight a war with no goal and no end. As a general rule when Republicans wage war the enemy dies, when Democrats wage war American troops die. You know, like rules saying you can't shoot first, or bomb the south side of the bridge, or pursue the enemy but stop at the border while they continue to shoot at you. Where are the liberal demonstrations against the war that were so intense when Bush was in office. Liberals don't demonstrate when their party is in office. But just like in the movie 1984, War is Peace so keep sending more cannon fodder; your sons, for the war effort. It's the patriotic thing to do. It's a war on terrorism. Who are the enemy? All the wars around the globe today involve Islam to a certain extent. But just like communism we embrace and promote it. What is the cost? Your Sons!

Whale Wars

Japan puts anti-whaling boss on Interpol list
Jun. 25, 2010 06:39 AM

TOKYO - The leader of a U.S.-based anti-whaling organization is now on an international wanted list for allegedly masterminding the group's disruption of Japanese whale hunts in the Antarctic Ocean, Japan's coast guard said Friday.

The move - done at Japan's request - signals Tokyo's escalating anger against the Sea Shepherd group, which it accuses of putting whalers' lives at risk during the annual Antarctic hunt.

The Canadian founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Paul Watson, 59, has been on the Interpol list since Wednesday, Coast Guard spokesman Shinichiro Tanaka said. He said Watson's whereabouts is unknown.

Sea Shepherd officials were not immediately available for comment.

Every year, Sea Shepherd attempts to obstruct Japan's whaling mission, which it carries out under an exception to a 1986 moratorium by the International Whaling Commission.

The Japanese Coast Guard already obtained a court-issued arrest warrant for Watson in April in connection with the trial of another activist accused of obstructing Japanese whaling in the Antarctic.

Japanese prosecutors accuse Watson of ordering Peter Bethune to climb onto the Japanese whaling vessel Shonan Maru 2 in February. Watson has denied the allegation.

Bethune, meanwhile, is charged with trespassing, vandalism, possession of a knife, obstructing business and assault. The 45-year-old New Zealander pleaded guilty to all but the assault charge. Prosecutors demanded two years in prison for Bethune in the last trial session earlier this month. A verdict should come July 7.

None of Sea Shepherd members, including Watson, have attended trial sessions.

Bethune admitted he climbed onto the Shonan Maru 2 from a Jet Ski in what he said was an attempt to confront the ship's captain over the sinking of a protesters' vessel the previous month. Prosecutors say Bethune threw glass bottles containing rotten butter at the harpoon boat, including one that broke and left three Japanese crew members with chemical burns. He was held on board the ship and arrested when the vessel returned to Tokyo in March.

Tanaka said the Interpol wanted list requests that police in 188 member nations cooperate with Japan's investigation of Watson by providing information about him, but does not require that they arrest him. He did not elaborate, citing the ongoing investigation.

Sea Shepherd last month announced that it had expelled Bethune, saying he had violated the group's policy against carrying weapons.

Here Is Where The Attacks Against Liberty Are Really Coming From

Politicians in Washington, D.C., love to manufacture a crisis. The crisis generates fear within the citizenry, thereby allowing the federal government to centralize more and more power. During a crisis, the citizenry becomes much more forgiving of federal abuses and accommodating of federal encroachments than it otherwise would be without a crisis. Hence, we have a federal "war on drugs," and a "war on poverty," and a "war on terror," and an "oil crisis," and an "energy crisis," and a "domestic terrorism crisis," and an "education crisis," and a "border crisis," and an "economic crisis"--Blah! Blah! Blah!

You can mark it down: every major crisis that America has faced over the last several decades has been either manufactured or facilitated by policies and activities originating in Washington, D.C. But at the same time that DC is creating these crises, it categorizes any ideological group it finds distasteful as a convenient scapegoat. These convenient scapegoats can include "angry white guys," "tea party extremists," "a vast right-wing conspiracy," Constitution Party or Libertarian Party "extremists," "Second Amendment extremists" (gun owners), "pro-life extremists," ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

Yet, while DC's elitists are plotting America's next crisis and figuring out whom to categorize as America's next "extremist," some real enemies are waging war against the freedoms and liberties of our once-great republic. And, ladies and gentlemen, these enemies are much more subtle, a lot closer, and much more dangerous than almost anything you are being told about.

Here are some of freedom's real enemies: The National News Media

For the most part, the national news media is no friend of freedom. About all most of them know of the US Constitution is the part about the "freedom of the press" (from the First Amendment, of course). Watch any of the Big Three television network newscasts on any weekday evening, and what will you see? You will see the exact same stories regurgitated over and over again--even with the exact same spin! And that spin is most always tilted toward bigger and bigger government. This goes on night after night, week after week, month after month, and year after year. But this is all just coincidental, right? Get real! Well, if you get your news from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or FOX NEWS, that is exactly what you are being led to believe.

The cable news networks are not much better. About the only difference between cable networks is that CNN will provide cover for Big Government Democrats while viciously attacking all things Republican, and FOX NEWS will provide cover for Big Government Republicans while viciously attacking all things Democrat.

Face it: the national news media is intoxicated with Two Party Politics. They really don't care nearly as much about the fundamental tenets and principles of liberty as they do about whether a Democrat or Republican wins office. Washington's media elite are wined and dined by the same party politicians that they cover on television or in the newspaper. (What a racket!) Do you really think any major media news personality is going to risk losing his or her job (which is exactly what would happen) by asking too many questions, or boring too deeply, or straying too far off the reservation? Once again, get real! All of these guys and gals know exactly where the line--and the "third rail"--is located. And they all will stay clear of both! It's not about reporting the news, or defending liberty, or anything of the sort. It is about pleasing their big corporate sponsors--corporate sponsors who are in bed with the elites from both major political parties, by the way!

As long as the American people continue to allow the national news media to manipulate and spin the news, our liberties will continue to erode.

Freedom has many more real enemies that could be added to this list, of course; and maybe in the future we can talk more about them. For now, recognize that our liberties are hanging by a thread in this country. And the next time you hear someone in Washington, D.C., or the national news media railing against the latest "crisis" that requires Big Government to fix, please remember who the real enemy is.

Mosque at Ground Zero - A view from the Left

Proposed Mosque at Ground Zero draws protests
June 8, 7:12 AM Portland Humanist Examiner Micha J. Stone

A proposed mosque and community center at Ground Zero continues to draw protest from the right wing fringe. Sunday, close to a thousand angry, uninformed Americans gathered in lower Manhattan to demonstrate against plans to build the mosque and community center near the site of Ground Zero, where the twin towers of the World Trade Center were destroyed by Islamic hijackers on September 11, 2001.

Opponents of the proposed mosque call it "offensive" and "demeaning". Their angry and perverse paranoia willfully transforms a gesture of good will and community spirit into an insult to Americans and a celebration of Muslim fanaticism.

Those protesting the proposed mosque and community center have an uninformed and ignorant view of Islam. They see Islam as a monolithic force for evil, rather than a fragmented religious world view with both good and bad aspects.

Of course, many of the loudest voices of protest are fundamentalist Christians, with their own perverse and twisted world view, a world view that demands simple minded, black and white explanations, a world view incapable of dealing with the complexity and nuance of reality.

Ground Zero Mosque


'10,000' throng to stop Ground Zero mosque

As many as 10,000 protesters from across the country – including family members who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001 – took to the streets in New York City Sunday to fight construction of a 13-story Islamic mosque to be built just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah.

Now the organizers plan to sue the federal government to designate the site as a war memorial.
