RESPECT COALITION Pledges Honesty
Only In Britian? Pity!
By Winter Patriot on 4/8/2005 1:00am PT  

Guest Blogged by Winter Patriot

It will be interesting to see how long this will last:

The anti-war Respect coalition has launched its election campaign with a promise that its candidates will always be honest with voters.

The party, which was formed last year by former Labour MP George Galloway, says it "told the truth about Iraq" and will continue to do so on other issues.

Respect is contesting 30 seats in England and Wales at the election.

A spokeswoman said: "We're not a single issue party and will be fighting for pensions and against privatisation."

'Electric atmosphere'

More than 700 people attended the party's election launch in London's Bishopsgate on Wednesday night, and gave Mr Galloway's speech a standing ovation.

Mr Galloway, who was expelled from Labour for comments about the Iraq war, is standing against pro-Iraq war Labour MP Oona King in Bethnal and Bow.

Good luck, George! We'll be watching!

Pro-Democracy Movement in Bahrain IGNORED in US Media
... because they don't want you to know about it
By Winter Patriot on 4/5/2005 7:49pm PT  

Guest Blogged by Winter Patriot

He's preaching the spread of democracy all over the world, and especially in the Middle East. Sounds great, doesn't it? He wants you to think so! But he doesn't want you to realize this: George Bush [or his inner circle] will decide which governments are democratic, which are autocratic; which will stand and which will fall. And the decisions will have nothing to do with democracy.

One case in point was mentioned recently by fellow guest-blogger Jaime in his excellent item, News You Might Have Missed. Here's another example for your consideration:

Pro-Democracy forces in a Middle-Eastern country turned out more than ten percent of that nation's population out for massive and peaceful demonstrations. It happened a week and a half ago, in Bahrain. Did you hear or read anything about it? Don't feel badly if you missed it; the way it was played in the major media, it's almost as if they wanted you to miss it!

Never fear! The Brad Blog is here! You haven't missed anything!

"a premeditated plan to reap unjust profits"
Courtesy of Russ Kick and The Memory Hole
By Winter Patriot on 2/5/2005 10:22am PT  

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

In a few recent posts, I have mentioned Russ Kick and his twin websites, The Memory Hole and The Memory Blog. The most recent [February 4] item on The Memory Blog looks very interesting...

Snohomish County Public Utility District (PUD) today publicly released a new set of evidence showing Enron energy traders fabricated repair needs in order to take a Nevada power plant offline during the height of power blackouts in California in early 2001. The evidence also highlights illegal gaming schemes that crossed into Canada and involved senior Enron officials. PUD evidence reveals that Enron's market manipulation started at least two years prior to the western energy crisis as part of a premeditated plan to reap unjust profits from western consumers.

This would be bad enough, of course, even if Enron and Bush were not like this [holding two fingers very close together].

Click here for more details on the so-called president's close friends, and their high moral values...

UPDATE: Brad here, jumping in with a quick update to Winter Patriot's post. It's a quote from comments on this thread posted by Nana, but it deserves to be front and center. The fake California Energy Crisis of 2001 being a pet bugaboo of mine...Thanks, Nana.

"The California crunch really is the result of not enough power-generating plants and then not enough power to power the power of generating plants ..."

Story Critical of Defense Department Vanishes!
Expect More 'Information Warfare'!
By Winter Patriot on 2/4/2005 6:28pm PT  

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

Early this afternoon, the lead story on CNN's main page was headlined "Critics question Pentagon news sites".

It began:

The U.S. Department of Defense plans to add more sites on the Internet to provide information to a global audience --- but critics question whether the Pentagon is violating President Bush's pledge not to pay journalists to promote his policies. The sites are run by U.S. military troops trained in "information warfare", a specialty than can include battlefield deception.

That story is now gone, and not a trace of it can be found. The CNN search engine can't find it. Google knows nothing. Interesting, no?

Why do you suppose CNN pulled it? You don't suppose they got any heat for it, do you?

And what do you make of the shift-of-tense? The first sentence says "[DoD] plans to add more sites", but the second sentence says "the sites are run". Is this story about sites that are already up and running? Or about sites that don't yet exist? Or both? I can't tell. Can you? We may as well assume the worst.

Further, what do you suppose it means by "journalists"? What do you suppose that word means in the context of the phrase "President Bush's pledge not to pay journalists to promote his policies"? How about "partisan hacks pretending to be journalists"? Do you think his pledge extends that far? Do you suppose Jeff Gannon qualifies as a "journalist"?

I still say we may as well assume the worst. We may as well expect more "information warfare". We may as well expect more "battlefield deception". We should never forget that "the home front" is considered "a battlefield", where those who can see through the propaganda, and who dare call it by its proper name, are considered "the enemy".

I wish I had saved more of that story. I wish I had read more of it.

Oh well. We'll find out soon enough. But not from CNN.

ReddIt this story!
