Does AIPAC Launder American Foreign Aid Into U.S. Lobbying Funds ?

AIPAC is suspected and is challenged to open its books regarding the suspicion that it launders American foreign aid. Israel receives over $ 2.5 billion in cash from the U. S. yearly. It is alledged that over $ 250,000,000 of that sum finds it way back into U.S. lobbying efforts under its direction and the other 126 PACs that it influences. That staggering sum is over 11% of yearly lobbying funds spent by all the other lobbyists combined!

AIPAC and other pro-Israel lobbies should not enjoy access to our Congress as if they are a 51st state. With less money and influence in America, Israel would be forced to make peace and stop murdering Palestinians.

The Foreign Lobby Registration Act would expose and end the the spider-web of Israeli influence. The Council for the National Interest which is running a full-page ad this Sunday in the N.Y.Times is heading this lobbying reform. Please support them

Stop Funding Israels War Machine

Gaza is being invaded this morning by hundreds of Israeli tanks and thousands of soldiers. Airstrikes have already knocked out power and water to histories largest refugee/concentration camp. Approximately 1,000,000 are threatened by a humanitarian crisis with this Israeli collective punishment technique. But it will get worse as the tanks and planes start their massacre.

America's congress and executive branch are held on a short leash by AIPAC. Not one person in those 2 branches of government has spoke out against the asymmetrical Israeli barbarism. I am ashamed of our government.

America should stop funding Israel as a country. It should be converted to a theme park dedicated to the myth and lie of religions net positive influence in the real world.

Gates and Buffett: Friendly Advice on Philanthropic Goals

Warren Buffett announced today that he was going to donate over $ 37 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. That would more than double the Foundations size to over $ 67 billion. Staggering sum ! I offer some friendly advice.

Please remember Messrs. Gates and Buffett for every life you save they must then have a place to stand, food and water. Therefore birth control and land conservation will make your generosity actually effective and long-lasting. Otherwise you will appear to do good but it will only get worse for the most vulnerable.

What's Wrong With " Cut and Run " ?

To " cut and run" in todays political debate has a negative connotation. But there is nothing inherently wrong with changing directions in any enterprise. Whether it be war , business or personal affairs. If war was a normal state instead of an aberration then to " cut and run" would be a nihilistic response to an imperative for living and survival. But war is not a lifestyle for the most of us. Especially wars of choice like Iraq and possibly Iran. Only the loathesome like Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush, Rice and AIPAC supporters see war as normal and peace as an aberration.

The Story of Rachel Corrie: Israel's Guilt On Stage

The Off Broadway play " My Name is Rachel Corrie" , which is based on her notes and journal, is opening at the Minetta Lane Theater in Greenwich Village. It will run from October 5, 2005 through November 19, 2005.

This play is about the Jewish/American protester who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer on March 16, 2003 in Gaza. She was protesting the Israeli policy of demolishing Palestinian homes. To this day her killers have not been charged.

The play was originally to have opened in March of this year. But members of Jewish lobbies stopped the play because of it's negative view of Israel. Israel is a rogue state that doesn't obey U.N. laws ( in spite of being created by a rigged U.N. vote in 1947) .It also largely ignores normal human customs, I.E. it demolishes homes and kills innocent bystanders in the administration of it's policy of collective punishment of Palestinians. In these actions it reminds of similar Nazi tactics that were used against Jews in Germany.

More Israeli Murder in Gaza Yesterday.

Yesterday, Israeli missles missed their target and killed an innocent Palestinian woman and seriously wounded 8 bystanders. This incident brought the weekly total of innocent bystanders killed to 16. Israel uses U.S. supplied F-16s and Apache gunships to kill the Palestinian fish in the Gaza barrel. These disproportionate Israeli responses add up to murder and remind of Shylock's "pound of flesh" demand. Somethings never change.

Blacks, Whites, Swimming & Thinking Differences

Yesterday the N.Y. Times had a piece titled ," Closing Swimming's Deadly Racial Gap". Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control And Prevention, black children and teenagers aged 5-19 are 2.3 times more likely to drown than whites. Black children 10-14 are 5 times more likely to drown than whites.

The article then had quotes and opinions from social workers, disadvantaged parents, black demagogues et al. Their explanations all had "racism" or "racial gaps" as the primary underlying reason for the drownings. Reasons included swimming was not an historic African cultural trait so slavery exposed Africans to unnatural hazzards. Blacks were segregated in the past and so did not have equivalent access to pools like whites. And then there is the supposed fact that the chlorine in pool water is particularly unfriendly to black skin and hair and therefore blacks had a genetic aversion to the white man's hygiene procedures associated with swimming so they avoided the pool !

This black race card and guilt marketing has become unbelievable. Stupid accusations like those above increasingly antagonize more than they generate sympathy. A lot of blacks are going to have to grow up. They must take responsibility for their actions. Simply, people who can't swim for whatever reason should not go swimming. Drownings will then go down dramatically. People who want to go swimming should take lessons. Then drownings will go down dramatically.

Black drownings are not about "racism" or a " racial gap" problem. It's about using one's head and learning to think on one's own. If people whether they be black or white do stupid things then they are the one's to blame . It's not about a larger cultural or historic racial issue.

Zionists Giving Up on Iraq! Hope for U.S. Gentiles

Senator Dianne Feinstein said yesterday that democrats would introduce legislation "for a timetable for phased withdrawal from Iraq". She voted for the war and her husband Dick Blum has made millions from the war. But she is also the lead Zionist for AIPAC in Congress. So it may mean that the criticism of the Jewish Lobby is finally getting some positive results. They don't want to be associated with this loser and risk their other interests in occupied America. Speaking of losers who will Bush turn to now ? Success has many fathers but failure is an orphan.George and Barbara are stuck with this embarassment.

Spanish Great Ape Project: Support This Good Start

There's hope. Of all places Spain is debating the Spanish Great Ape Project. Spain is home to bull fighting and is known for the many extinct animals that once roamed its beautiful lands. But they are trying to do the right thing. The vote is scheduled for later this month. But I encourage people to send supporting e-mails to the Spanish legislators. E-MAIL:

The legislation elevates the primates to a status equal to their distant cousin . That be us. It doesn't mean we have to adopt them, build homes , give out food stamps or let them vote. But the new law would stop inhumane treatment, torture and killing. The Project is led by Pedro Pozas and Peter Singer. The Project will stop the use of primates in medical testing. Why should they feel discomfort, pain or die for their cousin the frivolous primate ( humans)? Why should they be killed so sodomy can be pursued without the inconveniece of a condom?

If we need testing for new drugs then we should use death row inmates instead of having scruples about discomforting murderers from lethal injections. With near 7 billion humans on the planet surely we can find a good medical use for some. I personally would give a list of candidates for medical trials if anyone wants one.

2008 Presidential Elections and Debates

Its been said that Americans go to war and then learn about geography, history and other cultures.

In order to screen for better presidential candidates, I propose a requirement that tests for such knowledge. Questions to the candidates will include world history, world geography and other cultures. Also candidates will be asked how these 3 subjects interact.

Maybe then we can find out who should be a Dairy Queen manager and who should be President of the United States. If my plan was in place last election, the moron Bush would still be in Texas.

James Joyce and Dublin's Eloquent Duck

Pity James Joyce. The pile of pages of his Ulysses weigh more than the duck and her demonstrated eloquence as she waddled by his statue in Dublin and stopped the busy traffic all by her self. This is the 7th year of the tradition of this hen and her brood of ducklings moving from their birthplace at Trinity College to the pond at St. Stephen's Green for their first swim. She had some traffic control assistance from groundsmen from Trinity. Her determined attitude should be a model for conflicted, confused and navel-gazing humans. She knows one thing for sure. Keep on going !

The old days had their advantages. Less people, less noise, more animals and open space. But the disadvantage for the people who lived then was they didn't know how good it was in those areas. The advantage of today is hindsight. Let's get back the good things we have lost.

Please return mother duck with more new ducklings.

Africas Angola: Has Money and Cholera But No Hygiene

Angola is suffering from an outbreak of cholera. Since February of this year over 43,000 have been sickened and over 1600 have died. Cholera is a direct result of non-hygienic living. The main reason cited for this latest epidemic is the distribution of water that is infected with human feces and other lethal man-made organisms. Daily over 450 tanker trucks load up with diseased Bengo River water and distribute it to overpopulated slums. The shanty-towns themselves have no facilities and the human sewage runs in the street.

This is happening while the countrys revenues from oil production will tally over $ 17 billion this year. Do the Angolans need more money? Do they need more assistance and debt relief? Do Bono and Bill Gates need to remind the world of their plight? Will they ever be able to live in sanitary conditions and a sustainable population density that they have figured out for themselves?

The problem with the Angolans as with many other African nations is overpopulation and a racial and cultural backround that doesn't regard hygiene as a priority. The civilized world continuing handouts and exploitation of Africas natural resources have exacerbated these root tendancies . Africa should be conserved as the worlds natural park where all can visit and learn what it was like at the dawn of mankind. The Africans themselves feel more comfortable with these ancient ways and themes.

Inflation, Poor Earnigs Problems? Try Using Barter System

Survival. Is there anything more important ? Gas prices are high. Rents and interest rates are creeping higher. But wages are mostly going no where fast. So how does one keep up and also live a life worth living?

Barter is increasingly a path people are choosing. Everyone has multiple abilities. But most everyone are only paid for one ability at a formal job. But what if the formal employment wage doesn't keep up with the necessities of life let alone the desires . Start bartering your main skill and other abilities to fill in the gaps in your spare time. It is also a philosophically rewarding experience of true value deals with others.

It is also a revolutionary step in bringing back control to one's life and destiny. Barter also replaces the tax man and many other government intrusions.

Israels New Name for Murder

The Israeli breeder -reactor of greed for other peoples land and hate for those who would stand in the way was in full bloom yesterday. The Israeli Air Force carried out 2 airstrikes in occupied historic Palestine which looks like histories largest refugee camp. The cowardly pilots killed 8 and wounded over 40 some seriously from the comfort of their aircraft.

A spokesman for for israel said, " The [air] strike had prevented more Palestinian missle attacks." Gee, with all the preventative killings that Israel has executed over the years one would think that peace should be around the corner. But it's not. Why? Because murder by Israeli troops does not prevent Israeli deaths it only insures more strife.

S.F. Supervisor Chris Daly: Handjobs or Handguns ?

San Francisco stupidvisor Chris Daly sponsored Propostion H. H was supposed to refer to handguns which it was to ban. But it also could stand for the virtual handjob for the gun-control crowd as a seconadry objective.

Never mind the Bill of Rights or the California State law regarding handguns that supercedes local ordinances. This California law has been challenged before but it prevailed and the moron Daly knew it. But as with most pols the opportunity to appear to be caring and concerned comes before probity of action.

But S.F. Superior Court Judge James Warren agreed with the National Rifle Association. Simply California Stata law was the only guiding authority. Incidentally he noted that law-abiding citizens should have weapons if they want because they are the first line of defense if they are personally attacked.

There was considerable time and money spent in this foolish act by Daly. Daly should be recalled and/or sued for damages to the City for his mischief.

Guantanamo: A Rare World Agreement

Rarely does the world agree. But the issue of the detention facility at Guantanamo has brought this rare consensus. Today the European Union passed a resolution condemning the the U.S. and its " unlawful and inhuman" detention center . They also urged that the Red Cross be allowed immediate access and that the facility be shut down.

How did our countrys actions and reputation get so tarnished and sullied? Because somewhere along the line with our great wealth we started doing things because we could not because we should.

African Animal Slaughter: Near- Monkeys With Modern Weapons

What could possibly go wrong? Well I will tell you. In this years military budget is a Pentagon authority which is funded by $ 200 million to train and equip foreign-nation fighters. The plan is for these mercenaries to help fight the war on terror. But these weapons can and have been used for other purposes.The list includes Cameroon, Chad, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. These countries are on the short list of Africa's most poor nations. These are near-monkey humans that should be using stones and sticks and not modern-day weaponry. My main concern is for the primates and all the other small and large animals that will be subject to extinction.

It has been widely reported that the slaughter of hippopatami and other animals for meat and/or illegal trafficing is made possible only with the kinds of weapons that the U.S. will supply.

What a horrible prospect. May the criminals at the pentagon who are part of this looming disaster suffer a fate that is equal to the fate that they are causing for the innocents.

USS Liberty Deaths : Israeli Criminals Still at Large

This past Thursday June 8 marked the 39th anniversary of the savage and cowardly attack on the unarmed USS Liberty by the Israeli Air Force. This happened during the Middle East 6-Day War in 1967. The death toll of American sailors amounted to 34. There were also 171 wounded. The ship somehow didn't sink but was badly damaged. There was never a congressional investigation into the criminal act.

Last year survivors of the USS Liberty filed a formal " Report of War Crimes Committed Against U.S. Military Personnel, June 8, 1967" with the Department of Defense. This is the first time in history that an American military unit has had to take this step. Normally the commanding officers in the chain of command take the necessary steps for an investigation. We should support the USS Liberty investigation. Tell your representative in Congress Israel doesn't have a free pass for it's criminal behavior.

Why the Israeli's attacked the USS Liberty no one knows. But the fact that there was no investigation speaks volumes about the power of the Jewish lobby and the double-standard that is applied to Israeli actions.

Abbas, Israel, Hamas: Two State Referendum

President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority is brave and a patriot of occupied Palestine. His plan to put forward a referendum for a two state solution to the conflict puts him in the crosshairs of both Israel and Hamas. Israel doesn't like the referendum because it requires them to pull back to pre-1967 borders. Also it allows the right of return to Palestinian refugees and gives East Jerusalem to the Palestinians for their capitol. They call the referendum a " non-starter". Hamas is against the referendum because it compromises their ability to deal with Israel directly who they know will not abide by the referendum. So Abbas is loathed by both.

I don't think he will live to see the vote. Israel wants him out of the way more than Hamas. The bonus for Israel would be if Hamas takes him out or Israel does it and makes it look like Hamas did it. Then Israel would not have to deal with Hamas -period. And our stupid Bush would back them up.

Israel should be the textbook example on what is wrong and what can go wrong with nation-building. It was created in 1947 by a rigged U.N. vote and it is still fighting it's war of independence.

Wrong Word Science: Black Hole & Gravity

Writing, understanding and talking about science is difficult. It's made more difficult be the use of the wrong word, concept or analogy. For example, a " black hole" is not really a hole. It is more like a whirlpool . The usual graphic discriptions of black holes show superheated gases or gamma rays spewing from 2 diametrically opposed directions.

Also gravity is really another word for leverage. Actually leverage is a better discription and word for the effects of "gravity". The word "gravity" is an unnecessary addition to the scientific lexicon.

Arizona Governor Napolitano: Mexican Proconsul

Governor Janet Napolitano just vetoed her 115th bill. The legislature is republican controlled and not one veto has been overturned. This is suspicious. This bill like many others that she has vetoed dealt with the illegal immigrant infestation. In the past she has vetoed : English as the official state language, sanctions on employers for hiring illegals, stopping aid and services to illegals, arresting illegals for tresspass and many others. She should be bitch-slapped, but the fact that not one veto was overturned is suspicious. Are the republicans covering for business ' appetite for cheap labor?

Vicente Fox must view her as a Mexican proconsul. How do we get people like her and the many others like her? She is another of Kennedy's political children from the Civil Rights era. Teddy in particular pushed The Nationality and Immigration Act of 1965. This effectively put most of the U.S. immigration policy into the hands of immigrants legal or illegal and their lawyers. With that new turn came the challenge for politicians to maintain their control. So they sell out to the new immigrants because they know the competition will do the same.

Napolitano and other pols like her represent the citizens of America and also represent and fight for illegal immigrant rights that compromise the priveledge of U.S. citizenship. They have become illegal themselves.

Somalia, al-Qaeda & C.I.A.: No Winners

What is the U.S. doing in Somalia? The C.I.A backing of Somali warlords against real or suspected al-Qaeda members starts a dependency by Somalia on America. We have seen similar addictions in foreign policy so many times before. No matter what happens it will be in the Somali warlords financial interest to keep alive the al-Qaeda threat. Even if it amounts to cross-dressing.

We should walk away from Somalia. Let al-Qaeda care for these Stone Age Africans. The C.I.A budget of $ 40 billion per year creates more mischief than it solves.The C.I.A acronym stands for " Confused in Africa" !

Jolie, Pitt : Stars, Fans and Charity Marketing

Come and get it! Photos of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's new baby can be had through Getty Images. The PR people are talking millions of dollars being raised for charity through Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt's baby pictures. Are fans that dumb that PayPal servers will buckle under the voyeuristc surge? If this sells big,what's next? Perhaps the movies of the birthing experince first hand? Or how about mother's birthing debris in cryongenic banks that can be traded in futures markets?

The couple made a statement to the press. They said, "While we celebrate the joy of the birth of our daughter, we recognize that 2 million babies born every year would die on the 1st day of their lives. These children can be saved, but only if governments around the world make it a priority."

Sadly the couple have not done the math. Those 2 million infant deaths if prevented end up being in just 2 generations over 500 million new people looking for food , water and a place to stand. For all the good Jolie and Pitt think they are trying to do, they will only add to population grief down the road. A better goal to push with their star appeal would be mentioning and promoting family planning and birth control rather than unlimited population growth.

Jerry Brown: Women, Pensions & Public Office

Jerry Brown is running for the office of California Attorney General. The man is shameless. If he wins the latest contest it would be his 6th major public office. He was Secretary of State, 2-term Governor, 2-term Mayor of Oakland. It must be a record. His cumlative pensions already add up to over $ 300,000 per year . And the AG job will increase that total.

Is he qualified to be California AG? Well, he's against the death penalty. Here he is at odds with a big majority of Cal voters on a key issue. So the odds are against him in this race. But no matter what happens he will again manage not to spend all the campaign contribution money. In politics you don't have to win the race to come out ahead..

What is Jerry known for? What are his past accomplishments? It seems he's known for the women he has associated with as much as anything else. On a personal level there was his relationship with Linda Rondstadt. She was a 60s rock group singer that he dated while in the Governors mansion. That got him more press than his bungling of the Mediterranean fruit fly infestations. Then there was his helping Mother Theresa in her care of the poor Indians for all of a week. That photo-op is talked about more than his past listless presidential bid.

And then there was that infamous woman appointment to the California Supreme Court. Voters should know about this battle with the Cal Assembly over the death penalty. He vetoed their legislation. Then the Assembly overode his veto. Brown then spitefully appointed Rose Bird to be the Supreme Court Chief Justice. She was against the death penalty and overturned 9 convictions. She was eventually recalled by the voters.

Brown should get a new life.

Paulson At Treasury, A Good Choice

Bush's nomination of Hank Paulson for Secretary of Treasury could be a significant catalyst for positive change. He has real credentials as an investment banker and as an environmentalist. What's good about those 2 seemingly at odds resume points is the fact that in the future which starts now business will have to be environmentally sustainable to be successful. And care for the environment will have to include a job-making component.

Murder In Iraq

War will never be the same if online witnesses are around. Haditha has already brought virtual murder charges against the crazed Marines. The cell phone, cameras and internet make every war crime scene open to inspection and speculation. What are criminals like Bush, Cheney, Rice and Rumsfeld going to do ? They can go to hell.
