~ neo-cons @ work ~
whats a Neo-con?
Well son.., (Click for shot movie clip on neo-cons HERE
after working in the garden all day.
I sat down at the computer and read this short
little forum on the very question.
Ya See son all these names in this forum are neo-cons, remember that when you read, you will get the picture.
Their big moment arrived with the collapse of the Twin Towers. The American public and politicians were in a state of shock, completely disoriented, unable to understand a world that had changed overnight. The neo-cons were the only group with a ready explanation and a solution. Only nine days after the outrage, William Kristol (the son of the group's founder, Irving Kristol) published an Open Letter to President Bush, asserting that it was not enough to annihilate the network of Osama bin Laden, but that it was also imperative to "remove Saddam Hussein from power" and to "retaliate" against Syria and Iran for supporting Hizbullah.
Following is a short list of the main characters.
The Open Letter was published in the Weekly Standard, founded by Kristol with the money of ultra-right press mogul Rupert Murdoch, who donated $ 10 million to the cause. It was signed by 41 leading neo-cons, including Norman Podhoretz, a Jewish former leftist who has become an extreme right-wing icon, editor of the prestigious Encounter magazine, and his wife, Midge Decter, also a writer, Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Studies, Robert Kagan, also of the Weekly Standard, Charles Krauthammer of the Washington Post, and, of course, Richard Perle.
Perle is a central character in this play. Until recently he was the chairman of the Defense Policy Board of the Defense Department, which also includes Eliot Cohen and Devon Cross. Perle is a director of the Jerusalem Post, now owned by extreme right-wing Zionists. In the past he was an aide to Senator Henry Jackson, who led the fight against the Soviet Union on behalf of the Jews who wanted to leave. He is a leading member of the influential right-wing American Enterprise Institute. Lately he was obliged to resign from his Defense Department position, when it became known that a private corporation had promised to pay him almost a million dollars for he benefit of his influence in the administration.
That Open Letter was, in effect, the beginning of the Iraq war. It was eagerly received by the Bush administration, with members of the group already firmly established in some of its leading positions. Paul Wolfowitz, the father of the war, is No. 2 in the Defense Department, where another friend of Perle'sDouglas Feith,, heads the Pentagon Planning Board. John Bolton is State Department Undersecretary. Eliot Abrams, responsible for the Middle East in the National Security Council, was connected with the Iran-Contra-Israel scandal. The main hero of the scandal, Oliver North, sits in the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, together with Michael Ledeen, another hero of the scandal. He advocates total war not only against Iraq, but also against Israel's other enemies, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority. Dov Zakheim is comptroller for the Defense Department.
Most of these people , together with Vice-President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, are associated with the "Project for the New American Century", which published a White Paper in 2002, with the aim 'to preserve and enhance this 'American peace'"--meaning American control of the world.
Meyrav Wurmser (Meyrav is a chic new Israeli first name) is Director of the Center for Middle East Policy at the Hudson Institute. She also writes for the Jerusalem Post and is co-founder of the Middle East Media Research Institute that is, according to the London Guardian, connected with Israeli Army Intelligence. MEMRI feeds the media and politicians with highly selective quotations from extreme Arab publications. Meyrav's husband, Davis Wurmser, is at Perle's American Enterprise Institute, heading Middle East Studies. Mention should also be made of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy of our old acquaintance, Dennis Ross, who for years was in charge of the "peace process" in the Middle East.
In all the important papers there are people close to the group, such as William Safire, a man hypnotized by Sharon, in the New York Times and Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post. Another Perle friend, Robert Bartley, is the editor of the Wall Street Journal.
If the speeches of Bush and Cheney often sound as if they came from the lips of Sharon, one of the reasons may be that their speechwriters, Joseph Shattan, Mathew Scully and John McConnellare neo-cons, as is Cheneys Chief-of-Staff, Lewis Libby. ,
The immense influence of this largely Jewish group stems from its close alliance with the extreme right-wing Christian fundamentalists, who nowadays control Bush's Republican party. The founding fathers were Jerry Falwell of the Moral Majority, who once got a jet plane as a present from Menachem Begin, and Pat Robertson of the Christian Coalition and the Christian Broadcasting Network, which help to finance the Christian Embassy in Jerusalem of J.W. van der Hoeven, an outfit that supports the settlers and their right-wing allies.
...The man who symbolizes this victory is General Jay Garner, who has just been appointed chief of the civilian administration in Iraq.
He is no anonymous general who has been picked accidentally. Garner is the ideological partner of Paul Wolfowitz and the neo-cons.
Two years ago he signed, together with 26 other officers, a petition organized by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs
“The truth is out there,” and no amount of dissembling, dishonesty or denial can alter that fact.

Topic: CIVIL RIGHTS
TSA & HOMELAND SECURITY screw up MoreHomeland security screw up with passenger list names ...About 30,000 airline passengers
have discovered since last November that their names were mistakenly matched with those appearing on federal watch lists, a transportation security official said Tuesday.
Civil Rights Destroyed
And Huge Mistakes with Messed-up-lists and privacy violations are abounding with this Department.
click HERE Then in this Fricked Up War on Terrorism A Mentally Ill Man Shot to Death

Our Government was behind 911
And is sponsoring terror.
Terror with a Dead Man on the runway
Terror into our lives
And Phony trumped up Terror Wars
This man was shot by terrorists it appears?
The way I see this is that the Air Marshals who killed an innocent man that was unarmed
are the only TERRORIST I see in this picture.
Ya he said the word bomb
...BUT he was bi-polar and Mentally illFor Gods sake now we are shooting innocent men!
The very same day

Go Home! We Dont Want Your War or Your Bills!
Now Playing: Bush & Co leave big bills for city after they REFUSE to pay!
check this link under the Subject SOUTH" then its the Kentuckey Article Here is the NY Times 12-6-05 Cheney Article
or see NYT article which I copied in the comment fourm at end of this blog entry below
Every time the Bush Crime Family comes to just about anytown USA
, they leave behind thousands in bills to the city/state. From Police, Secret Service fee's, costs for out of town police backup, numerous buses to cart away usually peaceful protesters, road crew needed for blocking city roads and their fee's for this service to Bush Co. From massive hiring extra security and erecting fences and cages. To enforcing with violence, mass crowd control. Extra Horse patrols,police Dogs, Sniper shooters, Military vehicles, rerouting traffic, shutting down transit malls buses, stores and freeways, and many many more requests. Usually all done just BECAUSE!.... there is thousands chanting at the Crime Family to "STOP THE WAR or NOT OUR PRESIDENT!" that pretty much all taht goes down till the Police esclate things
and he cheated at the vote, but thats another story!
Mostly these days people that disagree "openly" are told to go to the cages to exercise their free speech rights
. Yes I said Cages! That is free speech in America while Bush Co is running things into the ground. Your free speech will be in a armed POLICE guarded cage in a predetermined area way away from where the person of ill-repute is speaking thus making a protest pretty un affective! I would say!
By the way, It's a good idea to write your lawyers name on your arm, before you go, because after mass arresting people as they sometimes do at lots of these legal
protests, you will want that number handy. (At some protests the arrests are so plentyful that civil rights groups will have a toll free number or local number to call for a free civil rights lawyer to help you get out) But IF arrested and IF you do get to make a phone call the number needs to be remembered by you (or written on forearm, etc), ya see Citizen
they won't let you look a number up in jail ! You gotta know it! I heard where they even made people wash their arms/hands, to wipe off the information HAhahaha! This is just crazy!
These Republican War Profiteers
come into town for there big fancy 1000-dollar dinners to raise money for their henchmen or the GOP
?! And don't forget to "get your picture sitting on Cheney's knee for a few more thousand dollars" fund raiser they call it. After slapping each other on the back
and passing around a few ??? thousands dollars to each other, amid all the people outside screaming to "go home" they end up doing just that - and stiffing the city for the bill to boot!!!! So Sue Us in Court is All they Say!
Then as mentioned in the Times article they force the city, to sue them, to get their payments that are due.What a "Crock of Crime"
This time the courts did the right thing according to that NYTimes link
Many times it is not even Government business, it's to personally raise money for fellow palls in the ratpack. But we the taxpayers get stuck with the bill. HA! These are our leaders you say, sounds like its out of hand and these crooks are taking us to the cleaners??????!
Hey! I don?t want YOU
in my town!
Hey I want YOU
to stop TORTURING!
I want you to pay your own stinking security bills when ya come around!
I want you to end "your" ILLEGAL WARs OVERSEAS!
I want you to get your damn robo-cops out of my streets and quit pointing their guns at me!
Folks Who is starting the violence? The ones with the tools of pain to use on its people thats who! Cause 1000 in the streets doesnt mean they can bash your head in and leave town with me holding my head and the bill!
Hey YOU I don't like it when your goons and thugs in Black clad armor start firing rubber bullets, teasers, and mace into crowds of innocent people (known as CITIZENS). As done in Portland Or a couple years ago when BushCo was in town to support a fellow "R" (Gordon Smith)fundraiser dinner.
Now those people that were victims of The Bush Police Abuse sued the Portland Police for over 300 thousand dollars. Big Bullies got your pants sued off ya and lost! Huh?
But true to your style, as always you have been able to sneak out of town and fork us taxpayers for the bill for all your needed protection????!
"We Don?t Want You Here and We Have a Right to say so. It is Our America" and that was all we were trying to tell you...as your "boys" pushed us back with robo-cops and guns, and at one point intentionally drove a police car into the crowd. All we were doing was having a PEACEFULLY PROTEST but your jackbooted thug sure had all the weapons and tools to hurt people (and did!).
Like I said we were being PEACEFUL! But you are scared ...I do see why ...it seems most the world now hates you as ummmmm you stop Terrorism and bully forigneers with military or locals with their town Police? ? hmmmmm?
No wonder the security bills are so high,
Are you reaping what you sow!
Myself personally can say, I haven't felt any love being sowed
PS Oh! Speaking of "NEW RULES" Don't fly over Cheney's new Chesapeake Bay home either.
?Its a no fly zone? (what is he scared too I wonder why?)
If you lead a good life its not so scary (FYI)
Read the info about --> New Air Rules Imposed by the Foul Mouth-ed Republican War Profiteer!

~Patriot Act ~ Torture ~ Civil rights ~ Zebra3 Reports Is On It!
Now Playing: ACLU top 3 TOPICS for Monday Morning -
Topic: CIVIL RIGHTS
ACLU is Helping Me Help You
The following 3 Posts
are copied from the ACLU's
"Get Out I Am The King"
White House event staffers unlawfully removed two Denver residents from a town hall discussion with President Bush because of an anti-war bumper sticker on their car, the ACLU has filed ajust federal lawsuit recently.
By Anthony D. Romero
President Bush is lying to the American people.Consider the President's words in Panama: "We are finding terrorists and bringing them to justice. We are gathering information about where the terrorists may be hiding. We are trying to disrupt their plots and plans. Anything we do ... to that end in this effort, any activity we conduct, is within the law. We do not torture."
As the President well knows, the sad fact for all Americans is that many of the interrogations we have conducted are not within the law. As many current and former government and military officials recently told PBS' Frontline, we have tortured - and even killed - prisoners in our custody.
The Bush Administration and Congress have ignored their obligation to end the torture and abuse of detainees in U.S. military custody and restore faith in America's commitment to human rights. The abuses are the failure of our leaders who placed our troops in impossible situations, established policies that led to atrocities, encouraged those in command to look the other way, made young soldiers accountable while letting themselves off the hook, and then worked to hide the truth.
--> Rumsfeld Is Torturing
Patriot Act Update:
Don't Believe the Spin
The effort to renew the Patriot Act is not going according to the White House script. Two weeks ago the Administration attempted to force through a reauthorization bill that would make most of the provisions of the Patriot Act permanent and make other provisions even worse.
We were told that this bill was a done deal and a vote was going to take place at any moment. Fortunately the White House did not anticipate the resolve of Americans who refuse to sacrifice our most cherished civil liberties.
Thanks to your phone calls and emails (SEND YOUR MESSAGE HERE), a bipartisan group of principled and courageous Senators has publically rebuked the Bush Administration and blocked the vote, demanding that real reforms be a part of any Patriot Act reauthorization bill.
The reauthorization vote is now on hold, but the Bush Administration is undertaking a fierce campaign to get the bill that it wants and is pressuring Senators to drop their opposition.
It is critical that you continue to keep pressure on your Members of Congress by calling them and encouraging your friends to call as well. Tell them to stand fast against any Patriot Act reauthorization bill that lacks real reforms to protect our civil liberties.

Anyone Got A Light?
Now Playing: TSA Farts! ....Ooooppps! We Let-em keep their Lighters!
Topic: CIVIL RIGHTS
I read this
(quote) A new plan by the Transportation Security Administration would allow airline passengers to bring scissors and other sharp objects in their carry-on bags because the items no longer pose the greatest threat to airline security, according to sources familiar with the plans.
The TSA's internal studies show that carry-on-item screeners spend half of their screening time searching for cigarette lighters, a recently banned item, and that they open 1 out of every 4 bags to remove a pair of scissors, according to sources briefed by the agency. Officials believe that other security measures now in place, such as hardened cockpit doors, would prevent a terrorist from commandeering an aircraft with box cutters or scissors.
However, many flight attendants do not believe sharp objects should be allowed on board. They argue that even though such items would not enable another Sept. 11, 2001-style hijacking, the items could be used as weapons against passengers or flight-crew members.
"TSA needs to take a moment to reflect on why they were created in the first place -- after the world had seen how ordinary household items could create such devastation," said Corey Caldwell, spokeswoman for the Association of Flight Attendants, which has more than 46,000 members. "When weapons are allowed back on board an aircraft, the pilots will be able to land the plane safety but the aisles will be running with blood."
Also this was in the same article about taking off our shoes.., beings we 'joe-anybodys' might be terrorists!For example, he said that he was unsure whether it makes sense for passengers to routinely remove their shoes at the security checkpoint
ha HA!....Open the window & please! dont use your lighter, the TSA
you see Z3 reader I think the planes went into the towers for differnt reasons than what we have been told --> YEP ! Here

The Minimum Wage is Unfair
Now Playing: A FAIR LIVING WAGE
The Minimum Wage Act
was enacted through the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938
It was designed to eliminate”labor conditions detrimental to the maintenance of minimum standards of living necessary for health efficiency and the general well being of workers"
Today value of the minimum wage is about the same value as in 1950, meaning the minimum wage buys you less today than it did in 1950.
As mentioned by my Idol, Martin Luther King in his ’s
famous “I Have A Dream
” speech in the year 1963! It was at a rally for Jobs & Freedom
.That Mr. King mentions about a national minimum wage, that will give Americans a decent standard of living.
It seems to me we are living a Dream in Reverse
The buying power of today is that of 1950
The word “Fair” is an oxymoron
that disgusts me
Like many words used today by Bush & Co
If you apply the opposite of the word they used
You are closer to their true intent. Bush Spin!
Contrary to what we are led to believe in wage earnings. "The average minimum wage worker is not a teenager!"
They are adult men & women trying to survive and pay their way.
Even if they were teenagers
they should be paid the SAME
wage as an adult.Now that would be Fair!
Paying them a cheaper wage HA! How wrong!
BIG ideas from people who make triple or quadrupled salaries.The minimum wage has turned into a poverty wage not an anti-poverty wage!A minimum wage salary of 10,712$ a year is damn right despicable.
And Impossible to live off of! It is a travesty, if not a crime in my eyes!
In 2004 a cover story in Business Week on 'Poverty and Wages'
, say that about 28 MILLION workers
Which is about 1/3 the work force whom make less
than 9.00$ an hour
That translates to 18,800$ a year salary.
Now the threshold line that says you are at poverty level
for one adult and one child is 13,020$
So if your making over 13.020 a year as a single one child parent
…the government considers you to be above the poverty level……
My off-hand guess as just the "average Joe Anybody"
is that the Government has no idea what poverty is?
How could they know?! If they did why dont they care?13,020 Dollars a year for a mom & her kid to support themselves for a year???? come on!The Fair Wage Act
enacted during the Great Depression was done to assure the”idea of a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work”
Joe Anybody yells “ EAT THE RICH
” from his soap box.......
And Workers in China ......Fight to Organize
for better overall work conditions, the tension of the masses poverty escalates.
(for ...all the joe anybody everywhere)
Yet last year ...While poorer people requesting Emergency Food
went up by 14%
20 % went away with no help
While the request for shelter went up
last year by 6%
23% went away without any
The percent of wages
going to the lower income bracket is the lowest since 1929'Profits Raise and Wages Decrease'Wants some numbers?
In 2004 corporate profits rise by 85%
And average Joe Wages fell 4% (adjusted for inflation)
Joe Anybody personally knows all to well the profit of CEO's to be paid MORE than the minimum wage workers by percents around 140%
In 1980 alone, the average CEO made the same as 952 minimum wage workers
Talk About Depression!One thing is clear …that this redistribution of wealth from the wages of the poor workers to the executives at the top is hurting the economy too.
There are reports that support this and the steady flow of reports that show the incomes to the medium wage household has declining steady
for the past 5 years
if not for working 'MORE'
hours to keep up, these reports would look even worse.
Joe Anybody is a firm believer in raising minimum wages which helps reduce poverty.
Sorry you Fat Cat CEO's,
It may mean less profit to all those shareholders. "So!"
Zebra3 reports support the 2005 Resolution by The Conference of Mayors who has concluded and have called for an increase to the minimum wage to better enable minimum wage job holders to support themselves and their families!
Quality of Life is not to be denied to the joe average anybody
No money in the wages left for Health Care?
I hear ya, The Government doesn't't but we do!Just look at the correlation to the infant mortality rate in America. It is worse here in America than it is that of Malaysia a country with a quarter of the income, so says the 2005 Human Development Report. They are saying Infant death rates are higher for African American children in Washington DC than for children in Kerala, India
Hey The United States does WORSE than 36 other countries in Children under 6Five Mortality Rate well behind South Korea and Singapore
Poor Kids are just what their stereotype says …."Poor" and maybe short lived at that.
The fact that “Lack of Health Care Kills People” I am not shocked in the least,But I am Mad as hell!
Nearly 46 million Americans, which is 1 out of 6 had no Health Care Private or Public for the entire year of 2004
Wow! 46 million with No Health Care? ….sounds like Ben Waiting’s who has never been able to provide Health Care for his 13 year old child. We know this first hand here at Z3 headquarters.
Fighting For Fair Just Wages is paramount to achieving a better quality of Life for All
And by discussing and encouraging others to fight for Labor Rights & Fair Living Wages,
We here at the Z3 Report encourage you to vote and support local officials who support raising minimum wages to a level of human dignity. Be informed. Use your voice. And stand together. All the money doesn't’t go to the top …..we the workers deserve OUR SHARE!
Do you hear someone in the distance yelling? “eat the rich?”

15 year old boy. Is he the Reincarnated Buddha?
Now Playing: Meditating and Fasting for the last 6 months solid
Topic: ANYBODY * ANYDAY
A teenage boy has been meditating in a Nepalese jungle for six months, and thousands have flocked to see him, with some believing he is the reincarnation of Buddha, police and media said Wednesday.Ram Bahadur Banjan, 15, sits cross-legged and motionless with eyes closed
among the roots of a tree in the jungle of Bara, about 100 miles south of the capital, Katmandu.
He's supposedly been that way since May 17 — but his followers have been keeping him from public view at night.
A reporter for the Kantipur newspaper, Sujit Mahat, said he spent two days at the site, and that about 10,000 people are believed to visit daily.
Soldiers have been posted in the area for crowd control, officials said.Need more Info ? see these two links --> Young Buddha Boy Link 1Young Buddha Boy Link 2
