A former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan, old-line conservative Paul Craig Roberts, is warning us about the "danger within": "... the Executive Orders needed to create a police state are already in place. 'The administration figures themselves, and prominent Republican propagandists ... are preparing us for another 9/11 event or series of events,' Roberts continued. 'Chertoff has predicted them. ... The National Intelligence Estimate is saying that al Qaeda has regrouped. ... You have to count on the fact that if al Qaeda's not going to do it, it's going to be orchestrated. ... The Republicans are praying for another 9/11. ... Americans think their danger is terrorists,’ said Roberts. ‘They don't understand the terrorists cannot take away habeas corpus, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. ... The terrorists are not anything like the threat that we face to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution from our own government in the name of fighting terrorism. Americans just aren't able to perceive that. … Americans need to comprehend and look at how ruthless Cheney is. ... A person like that would do anything.'"

As you read this, swarms of extremely well-paid PR flacks are spinning the Kashiwazaki nuke quake into an argument for building more reactors. They will deploy utter absurdities and personal attacks, followed by the sound of media-complicit silence.


Well, the Busheviks stole the presidency, and have survived through an endless Iraq War with an ever-changing mission, so no one has ever accused them of being timid. While the Democrats worry if their trousers are creased or if their slip is showing, the Busheviks are punching them in the face.

Jim Ridout: A Moral Obligation

by Jim Ridout

The major news networks had their conservative caps on this weekend as they engaged us in what our "moral obligation" is to Iraq.
