False Flags for Denver DNC? Part 2

False Flags for Denver DNC?  Part 2
by Judith Young
On June 28, 2008, I wrote an article that was published by Pacific Free Press under the title “False Flags for Denver DNC?  Evidence for a Neocon Plan for False Flag Terrorism at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, August 25-28, 2008.”1 

I no longer fear a major staged terror event in Denver in conjunction with the DNC this week.  Instead, I see the Denver area as the probable locus of future specific false flags designed to culminate in martial law, for reasons given below. I also see the entire Democratic Convention as a false flag operation in a broad sense of the word.

Smirking Towards Washington

Biden, Obama and The Blood-Dimmed Tide        
by Chris Floyd     
I've been away for seven days, without access to email or the internet, in a country where I couldn't speak the language, in a place with no newspapers in English anywhere to be found. It was a blissful detoxification from the media echo chamber -- and from the even more deadly poisons of politics and power that the chamber so confusingly and cacophonously presents.

Only once, briefly, did I find myself in a room where CNN was blaring on a tiny television set. As it happened, it was the exact moment when Joe Biden was being anointed as Barack Obama's running mate. It was a live feed: Biden was at the podium, giving a strangely stilted speech in a fake Southern accent. (Perhaps he was trying to channel Bill Clinton -- or maybe Sam Nunn.)

Russia Is On "The Agenda"

War With Russia Is On The Agenda
by Paul Craig Roberts
Thinking about the massive failure of the US media to report truthfully is sobering.  The United States, bristling with nuclear weapons and pursuing a policy of world hegemony, has a population that is kept in the dark--indeed brainwashed--about the most important and most dangerous events of our time.
The power of the Israel Lobby is an important component of keeping Americans in the dark. Recently I watched a documentary that demonstrates the control that the Israel Lobby exercises over Americans’ view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  The documentary is available here.

Caging the Dream

Caging the Dream: Dems Wrap Freedom in Razor Wire        
by Chris Floyd     
Here's an historic speech by a noted African-American leader on August 28, 1963: I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

....This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."

And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

Caravan to End Canadian Involvement in Torture

Join the Fall 2008 ,Caravan to End Canadian Involvement in Torture Southwestern Ontario, October 17-22, 2008
by Homes Not Bombs
Join a nonviolent community on wheels for part or all of our journey as we travel through dozens of communities in a large triangular area (Toronto to Kitchener-Waterloo to London, then through Tillsonburg, Simcoe and Welland, up through Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, Hamilton and Mississauga) October 17-22.

The Caravan intends to expose and challenge the many ways in which the Canadian government is increasingly involved, both directly and indirectly, in policies and practices that result in the torture of human beings. While it is possible that a federal election may be underway during our caravan, we see this as a good opportunity to challenge all parties to commit to ending ALL forms of Canadian complicity in torture.

Nuclear Chicken

Nuclear Chicken in Poland: Putin Can't Afford to Back Down                  
by Mike Whitney
If the Bush administration proceeds with its plan to deploy its Missile Defense System in Poland, Russian Prime Minister Putin will be forced to remove it militarily. He has no other option. The proposed system integrates the the entire US nuclear arsenal into one operational-unit a mere 115 miles from the Russian border.
It's no different than Khrushchev's plan to deploy nuclear missiles in Cuba in the 1960s.

View From the Gallows

A View From the Gallows
by Antony Black
I don’t believe in capital punishment - as a rule. But I’m willing to make a few exceptions for our fearless leaders, indeed all the fearless leaders, who have so willingly prosecuted the totally bogus ‘war on terror’; who have, under the banner of peace, democracy and civilization, waged a ruthless campaign of war, terror and barbarism.
Now, truth to tell, I would likely give a moments pause before the gallows floor gaped open - on general humanitarian grounds you understand - though the obscene roll-call of their crimes would, I suspect, soon seal the court’s resolve.

Popular Myths in the Presidential Race

YOU MUST BE HIGH: Popular Myths in the Presidential Race
by Jack Random
A friend of mine keeps me honest when, in my passion for politics, I go over the top in criticism of candidates or praise for independent allies. He listens to my point of view, rolls it over in his mind, and pronounces his conclusion:  You must be high!  

In general, I am compelled to reconsider my analysis.  

In my observations of the unfolding race for the White House, I am often reminded of my friend’s pronouncement. If you think Barack Obama is a closet Muslim with a secret plan to destroy America from within, you must be high. If you believe Obama is the most liberal member of the United States Senate you must be high.
Wherever he ranks on the liberal scale, it is behind Independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, John Kerry and Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts, Barbara Boxer of California and fair trade champion Sherrod Brown of Ohio.
