RON PAUL AND THE CIA; Pakistan Armed Forces "Tried to Oust President"

First, I want to again acknowlege the courage and clarity Ron Paul has offered for so many years. I want to thank him for publicly endorsing my life's work (without saying my name) -- but especially for acknowledging the monumetal work of my friend, the late Gary Webb. This story is not quite what it seems to be. I don't know if the Congressman gets it. A great deal of CIA's operational command and control was transfered into the Pentagon under Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. At the time it was called the rape of the CIA. It was executed by Bill Tenet and Porter Goss. I wrote about it in detail at FTW as it was happening.

As collapse proceeds, the U.S. Government will inevitably downsize. The CIA's days are numbered. It's all coming down to the last conflict (or series of) when battlefield intelligence is all that matters. No need for long term deep covers and all that other clandestine stuff. When the CIA is eliminated, all of its crimes will be buried with it; and all of its capabilities will have been transferred to the Pentagon years before the death. I described it all in Clobalcorp in 2005. I wonder if Ron Paul sees this?

MCR,

I'm just now making it around to The New White Trash website. Avalanche & Earthquake...excellent song! When does the official album drop? Also, will you be offering it as a digital download (Amazon mp3, etc.)?

Just a suggestion...a lot of bands in the digital age give out free digital MP3 downloads in exchange for an email address. It's a great way to collect email addresses and stay connected with the fan base to let them know about new releases.

UK terrorist threat level raised to 'severe'

Coloured threat levels are so passée!

It has been nice seeing Ruppert post more. And congratulations for the great movie "Collapse." I have a suggestion: Ruppert needs money, I like podcasts. How about offering podcasts for a subscription fee? Ruppert can read the news and then once a week he can put out as podcast. It probably wouldn't be too hard to get guests too.

Disaster economics article published in 2005 specifically referring to Haiti. Fascinating.

Are there any possibilities of a New White Trash concert coming to the Los Angeles area?

Hey Brits!

Help me out with this one.

“Police in the UK are planning to use unmanned spy drones, controversially deployed in Afghanistan, for the "routine" monitoring of antisocial motorists, protesters, agricultural thieves and fly-tippers, in a significant expansion of covert state surveillance.”

What the flock are “fly tippers” and will they necessitate Hellfire missiles, or not?

Fly Tipping.

@eyeballs

My guess is that fly-tippers are analogous to cow-tippers . . . except much faster.

@ eyeballs, gamedog

Fly-tipping is the dumping of rubbish in unauthorised places - usually consists of dumping an old mattress, a few car tyres and an old pram in a lay-by - but at its worst can involve barrels of toxic chemicals in one of national parks…. Hellfire missiles? too good for ‘em!!

An interesting sideline - I was listening to a radio programme about our surveillance state. One item reported on the police operating the drones who were taking them around to schools and demonstrating them to the children so they wouldn’t be too alarmed when they saw these things flying around…. Incredible! Will they soon be demo-ing terminator robots on our highstreets with the reassurance that they are for our own protection? You never know where those pesky terrorists will strike next, do you? After all, UK terrorist threat is at ‘severe’, so we must do our best to protect you….

Namaste

Agape:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fly-tipping

We're seeing more of this because of land fill charges for commercial waste (weigh bridges on tip sites charge by the ton), tho there's always been some irresponsible tipping, we regularly get a couple of ton dumped in our access road which I have to move, or pay the council to move. Not so bad if it's garden waste I can compost, but a pain when it's old fridges, furniture, and even asbestos sheets.

Seems a poor excuse to buy drones tho - they wont be operational until 2012 - when the gov is prolly expecting civil unrest and Olympic protests etc.

In my experience these and other products are pushed into the police by retired policemen working for commercial companies using the "old boys network", I'm sure it's a case of "back scratching".
I've seen it with telephone systems, and computer technology first hand - they did not buy the best system, or the most cost effective, the choice seemed to be solely based on the fact an ex cop was in charge of the purchasing from other ex cops working in the commercial sector.

Dear MCR & JO:

In all good ways imaginable: Ruthie & David thank you both for your looseness & firmness of leash while providing us this place from which to express ourselves. We love you both; dearly.

=================

Now, "Does Ron Paul see this?" No he does not, at least not yet:

Ron Paul, like all Ralph Nader/Paul Wellstone/Mel Carnahan/Bernie Sanders etc types is but another of this world's myriad of would-be political heroes who have been destined to both succeed & fail. Tears need not be shed for them. This has not been the epoch for unmitigated success of the good.

Like their beloved Country, they have from the outset been destined to do what they have done, nothing other than that. No differently than it has been for each one of us. From the outset of humankind's history we've been consistently shown that this is the way it is. Here we are watching it happen as we experience it happening. All of us are part of something that is fundamentally greater than ourselves. And only by yielding to that greater "something" are we given to optimally share in its gifts knowledge & power.

Only by seeing these things can we know what is worth saving.

Sincerely,

RanD

Ha ha...

Cow tippers?! I don't even wanna know! Just hope my government will protect me with whatever sci-fi technology they've got.

Paul: Hellfire missiles? too good for ‘em!!

In the right hands, ...

... but it never happens. I've always been in favor of capital punishment - for the real crimes. But the real criminals never get the kind of justice that would make the world jump up and say "YEAH!" Still, not being one is its own reward, and makes you worth listening to.

Thanks to all for the British education.
