Conspiracy Report for Sunday August 19, 2007

Welcome.

I am Mifune, and this is the Sunday, August 19, 2007 edition of the Conspiracy Report, filed from London.

American Free Press reports that Presidential Candidate Ron Paul is encouraged by his fifth place showing in the Iowa Straw Poll, placing ahead of Tommy Thompson, who later dropped out, as well as Giuliani and McCain, although the latter two did not officially participate in the straw poll.

Despite the “strong” showing, Paul supporters are left with a bitter taste as accounts of voting irregularities from the poll reach the public. According to American Free Press,

“… the votes in this traditional mock election among registered Iowa voters were counted with electronic Optical Scan machines that “read” paper ballots, which are not universally trusted because the proprietary software that counts the votes can be manipulated. At least one of the machines at the Straw Poll malfunctioned, as was widely reported right after the event. Some 1,500 ballots had to be “recounted,” according to the Chicago Tribune.”

“Another account says that the Iowa GOP insisted on collecting and counting all Straw Poll ballots out of public view in spite of demands to have the ballots placed in a clear plastic box where everybody can see them, and have them counted in front of everybody. “

Still, the Ron Paul campaign forges on, taking third place in the recent Illinois Straw Poll, barely trailing Fred Thompson at 19.96% to 18.87%.

Ron Paul went on to win the Alabama and New Hampshire straw polls by huge margins, although less than 300 votes were cast in each poll.

In an interview on Fox News on August 5, Ron Paul was recently quoted as saying that he doesn’t believe 9/11 was an inside job, causing further controversy among truth activists. For my two cents, Ron Paul needs to keep his campaign alive long enough to get elected; he won’t be able to do so by opening himself up to attack from the Mainstream Media, even if we all know that 9/11 was in part perpetrated by our government. Just wink and nod, folks.

Further from AFP, we have the report that Bush is to veto a “hate” speech bill. Now we all know he doesn’t care about the Constitution. He once called it a “Goddamned Piece of Paper.” As it turns out, the bill would “add homosexuals to the list of blacks and women who are ‘protected’ under current law.” Staying true to form,

“The bill is not about crime prevention or even civil rights,” said Chuck Colson, a former aide to President Richard Nixon who now runs a Christian ministry to prisoners. “It’s about outlawing peaceful speech—speech that asserts that homosexual behavior is morally wrong.”

Right. It’s about the right of a select few to impose moral judgement upon others in a society that doesn’t discriminate based on age, race, gender, creed, or sexual orientation. That’s how slippery slopes get started.

From Jonathan Cook at Counterpunch, this week marked the one year anniversary since the end of the Second Lebanon War; Israel’s brutal campaign of missile bombardment against the Lebanese civilian infrastructure featuring the wanton disregard for human life and targetting of ambulances, killing more than 1,000 Lebanese, notably many women and children among them.

In a further step towards war with Iran, the United States recently labeled Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps as a “terrorist” organization.

Bilderberg this week meets at the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello, 50 miles from Quebec, Canada in an effort to ram the Security and Prosperity Partnership, as well as the North American Union, down the throats of every Canadian, American, and Mexican citizen. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, because now we’re all equally fucked.

From Wired News via Global Research, we find that the CIA and Diebold, among others, have been editing Wikipedia entries.

“On November 17th, 2005, an anonymous Wikipedia user deleted 15 paragraphs from an article on e-voting machine-vendor Diebold, excising an entire section critical of the company’s machines. While anonymous, such changes typically leave behind digital fingerprints offering hints about the contributor, such as the location of the computer used to make the edits.

In this case, the changes came from an IP address reserved for the corporate offices of Diebold itself. And it is far from an isolated case. A new data-mining service launched Monday traces millions of Wikipedia entries to their corporate sources, and for the first time puts comprehensive data behind longstanding suspicions of manipulation, which until now have surfaced only piecemeal in investigations of specific allegations.

Wikipedia Scanner — the brainchild of Cal Tech computation and neural-systems graduate student Virgil Griffith — offers users a searchable database that ties millions of anonymous Wikipedia edits to organizations where those edits apparently originated, by cross-referencing the edits with data on who owns the associated block of internet IP addresses.”

Jose Padilla, a US citizen from Chicago and long-time detainee of Guantanamo Bay, was recently convicted of being a terrorist. We don’t know on what grounds he was determined to be a terrorist, but we probably don’t need to know anyway.

Russia and China recently conducted joint war games, demonstrating the growing strength and cohesion of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, consisting of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. From AP:

“The summit concluded with a communique that sounded like a thinly veiled warning to the United States to stay away from the strategically placed, resource-rich region.

‘Stability and security in Central Asia are best ensured primarily through efforts taken by the nations of the region on the basis of the existing regional associations,’ the statement said.”

From Richard C. Cook of Global Research, How Far Will the Crash Go and What Do we Do Now? Quoting the article,

“The immediate triggers are being described quite well: the collapse of the U.S. subprime mortgage market; the vulnerability of the rest of the economy to the subprime undertow, due to the “efficiency” of the markets in spreading risk; the worldwide overextension of cheap credit; the failure of large institutional investors and Wall Street brokerages to behave responsibly; and the long-term effects of the U.S. trade and fiscal deficits which are now coming home to roost. “

Well, we know that the Federal Reserve has been tightening the money supply in the United States since around 2001. Other than doing away with the Federal Reserve and driving out the International Bankers – the Rothschilds and their lackeys – we have no chance of avoiding the coming contraction, which will leave the bankers even richer, while the average citizen starves in the street. To those who are listening, I say this: pay off your credit card debts, do what you can to protect yourself.

Mumia Abu Jamal released two new recorded essays on August 15: The War Against Shadows and One of the Politics of Promises.

Eric Jon Phelps launched a stinging assault against Alex Jones in the August 15 broadcast of his radio program, Cloak and Dagger, claiming that Alex Jones is a Jesuit coadjutor. Despite the apparent wildness of his claims, Phelps hits on some solid information. Take a listen.

Homework Assignment:

And now folks, for your homework assignment. Find yourself a copy of the movie Fight Club and watch it. Don’t come back to ConCen without having watched it.

Then watch Steal This Movie, about Abbie Hoffman and the anti-war movement.

Conspiracy Report – Monday August 13, 2007

Big Brother and Police State

  • Bush Wants Brain Chips For Citizens
    • News Busters
      • The Bush administration tells us the main reason for warrantless wiretapping and searches is, warrantless searches and spying are necessary in order to keep us safe from the terrorist. They imply if we don’t have anything to hide it should not matter if they conduct warrantless searches and that no mater what political party happens to be in power, now or in the future, that this newly granted authority will not be misused. This same line of thinking is parroted mainly by the conservative, bootlicking pundits, bloggers and by what has become known as the graduates of the Joseph Goebbels School of Broadcasting and Propaganda on talk radio.

    • Donald Hunt | Signs of the Times
      • Despite a small rise in the stock market last week, the volatility, including a sharp drop on Thursday, still has everyone on edge. There were several reasons for this. First, the maintenance of stock prices at anything resembling their recent levels required a staggering infusion of “liquidity” (in other words, newly created money) by the world’s central banks, $213.6 billion on Thursday and Friday by the European Central Bank, $62 billion by the U.S. Fed). Second, that infusion of liquidity included an unprecedented departure by the U.S. Federal Reserve. This time they actually bought CDO’s (collateralized debt obligations). Usually they buy short term Federal Reserve obligations. This implies that no one else would accept these CDO’s.

      • On Friday, the Dow Jones clawed its way back from a 200 point deficit to a mere 31 point loss after the Federal Reserve injected $38 billion into the banking system. The Fed had already pumped $24 billion into the system a day earlier after the Dow plummeted 387 points. That brings the Fed’s total commitment to a whopping $62 billion.

  • The North American Union and the End of Democracy in Canada
    • Kevin Parkinson | Global Research
      • Unfortunately, democratic rights in Canada are quickly becoming an illusion. In a sinister plot being carried out underneath our noses, the Canadian government has been working collectively with Mexico and the United States to create the conditions for a merger into a North American Union (NAU). To date, there has been absolutely no public participation concerning this merger.

Politics

  • Karl Rove to Leave White House
    • Terence Hunt | WASHINGTON (AP) – Karl Rove, the political mastermind behind President Bush’s races for the White House and an adviser with unparalleled influence over the past 6 1/2 turbulent years, announced his resignation Monday, ending a partnership stretching back more than three decades.

Wars and Rumors of Wars

  • Is the United States Killing 10,000 Iraqis Every Month? Or Is It More?
    • Prof. Michael Schwartz | Global Research
      • While the atlantist media is reporting more than 3 000 GI’s killed in Iraq and many civilian victims of inter-confessional violences, it looks away from the daily slaughter of civilians by US patrols conducting their search operations for suspects. Professor Michael Schwartz estimates that their number reached 10 000 a month in the first 3 years of occupation. And much more since Bush ordered his surge of operations.
