Subject: BUSHWHACK ALERT: 6/19 Bunker Drills = Another 911?
Should we worry about another 911 on
Even the mainstream
Washington Post is sending signals that it's time for us all to worry
about White House intentions nowadays. In his June 4 WashPost op-ed,
Back to the Bunker, William M. Arkin states "the exercise is
the latest manifestation of an obsession with government survival that has
been a hallmark of the Bush administration since 9/11."
The bunker drill (or
"command post exercise") is indeed a great way to prepare for an attack
from abroad -- or to prepare yourself against public or military reaction
if you do something provocative. Something, let's say, like another 911.
Let's not forget that a similar bunker drill, Vigilant Guardian,
was in progress when 911 happened, and that it's this drill that accounts
for the famous ability of Cheney to run things from underground.
To put it simply, the Bush
administration is putting up its dukes and assuming a worst-case attitude.
This is exactly the kind of thing that US officials -- Congressional and
military -- were guarding against the last time we had a president in the
kind of dire straits this one finds himself it.
The last president,
incidentally, was Richard Nixon.
Motives for mayhem
Indeed, Bush's problems
are much greater than Nixon's, with Congress making rumblings about
exercising its constitutional function of oversight. Worse yet, poll
numbers show that he personally only enjoys the support of one-third of the
American People, and that a political judgment day may be coming for the
Republican Reich in November. Half the country now wants a new
investigation of the 911 Event, and the 911 research community, far from
fading into the sunset of "conspiracy theory," as predicted (and hoped) by
the corporate media, is mushrooming in numbers and conviction. Internet
flicks like Loose Change are the new samizdat, or
"self-published" declarations of an emerging American glasnost. A
"velvet revolution" of an awakened, aware America haunts the dreams of the
Ergo, it's time for
another terror event.
Planning the plot
The set up is
the Bush folks get enough collaboration out of Canada to puff up an "Al
Qaeda/Canada" connection, which introduces Oklahoma City fertilizer bombs,
Arab youth, the Internet and US helpers into the public mind. Media
pundits from Wolf Blitzer to Chris Mathews begin to let on that this
represents a new type of Al Qaeda, which Blitzer even labels "Al Qaeda
2.0." This new Al Qaeda is trying to set up smaller, "homegrown" terror
acts that will be like Oklahoma City.
the Bush folks are interpreting the Canadian affair as an indication that a
US terror incident is looming, and the FBI and CBS collaborate on a story:
Another Terrorist Attack Coming Soon?
the Bush folks drop in a couple of bombs to obliterate a "safe house"
where arch-villain Al-Zarqawi is in hiding. Again, even the WashPost has
been telling the truth about Zarqawi, labeling him what he is -- a
government propaganda ploy -- in an April story by Thomas E. Ricks:
Military plays up role of Zarqawi. Apparently, though, the
Pentagon pawn has a last service in him -- as a dead martyr to be avenged.
Wolf Blitzer makes sure to point out that it was Zarqawi who was leading
the way to a decentralized, homegrown Al Qaeda, so it's no stretch to infer
that an Oklahoma City terror attack would be from his followers, in his
King George & Generals (w/ camp
Above are three days in a
psyops set up that's Rovean in all its details, and corroborated by the
mainstream media -- who have become specialists in "don't ask/don't tell"
journalism. Their job as media folks is to eat it up, and spit it out for
the public to consume. It's all a bit embarrassing, but what did they
expect when they allowed themselves to be called "embedded," dignified
They do a bit of agonizing
over the obvious forensic problems of two 500-lb. bombs leaving a man in
the next room alive and (barely) breathing, and wonder aloud whether
perhaps the photos have been doctored -- but they don't dare to ask whether
the entire story has been manufactured.
So now we near another set
of government empowerment drills, by a leader who is meeting in his
hideaway of Camp David now to decide the future of the Middle Eastern War,
his great drive against the East. He has never said a word about retreat,
and he likely won't do so now. When the generals summoned to attendance
question the will of the American People, or the resiliency of the American
GI, he'll reassure them that the scenario can change quickly in the Global
War on Terror, and that maybe -- just maybe -- something will energize the
USA like another 911, real soon. If that happens, he chuckles, it may be
possible to do everything on the White House wish list, from initiating a
nuclear war with Iran to initiating a draft in Iowa.
With a wink at Rove he'll
get up, ready to let his Bush League associates (Cheney foremost) handle
the "arrangements," with everything being understood and nothing being said
in the open.
With a confident wave of
his hands Bush will commend his military to the civilian leaders who
controlled it on 9/11 -- and in farewell he'll comment that he has to get
ready for the June 19 bunker drills, in which they'll be practicing how to
stay in power and in control if there's another 911. Officers there will
remember that he seemed to be in particularly good spirits as he said this,
and that he smiled knowingly.

Canada has real hate crimes to worry about
By Ezra Levant
Calgary Sun, 12 June
David Ahenakew's criminal conviction for
"spreading hate" was quashed last week by no-one less than the chief
justice of Saskatchewan.
The septuagenarian aboriginal leader isn't
free to go just yet. He wasn't acquitted. His conviction has been set
aside. The province may have at him again.
Already, a chorus of "human rights" groups
clamoured for a retrial, forgetting freedom of speech -- even foolish,
wrong or hateful speech -- is a human right, too.
Ahenakew should not have been charged in
the first place. He muttered some conspiracy theory about Jews, and uttered
some childish admiration for Adolf Hitler.
The proper response by colleagues, the
public and the government should have been to rebut his absurd claims or
He should have been socially marginalized
by polite company, as any bigoted buffoon should be. But to criminalize
such harmless dissension is an affront to the Canadian belief in the right
to be wrong.
A retrial will likely fail for the reason
the first trial failed: The law will probably find Ahenakew didn't have the
requisite criminal intent to spread hate -- he was just riffing to a
reporter. And should he indeed be convicted, he will surely appeal to the
The zealous human rights set will
transform this nobody into an international celebrity, like they did for
Ernst Zündel, who was actually acquitted of his charge, "spreading false
news" about the Holocaust.
Ahenakew shouldn't just be let go because
bad ideas aren't a crime. He should be let go because he has become a giant
placebo for the human rights set -- a distraction from real issues, real
threats. He's a safe way for them to beat up on some harmless, old fool and
feel pretty pleased with themselves.
Canada has real hate crimes to worry
about, and real anti-Semites to battle who are far more dangerous than an
old man in the prairies. We've got 17 or more men arrested in Toronto for
allegedly plotting to blow up the CN Tower, storm the CBC and Parliament,
and behead the PM, all because of a hateful philosophy of jihadism.
Where are the hate crime charges there?
Instead of addressing the hateful beliefs
that united those suspects, the police went to extreme lengths to deny the
obvious -- to deny that these men share the belief that Christopher
Hitchens dubbed Islamofascism.
The Toronto suspects weren't motivated by
money. They were motivated by hate of our western society and hate of the
infidel Jews and Christians. Unlike Ahenakew, according to police, these
men were actually planning to do something about their hate.
But hate laws aren't really about hate.
They're about abusing and stretching the
criminal code to criminalize political dissidents. And, for whatever
reason, radical Islam has been granted a special exemption by the arbiters
of political correctness.
Why wasn't the head of the Canadian
Islamic Congress, Mohamed Elmasry, charged with a hate crime when he went
on TV last year, stating that every adult Jew in Israel -- which would
include pregnant women, old men, young folks at a pizza parlour or dance
club -- are legitimate targets for Palestinian terrorism?
Surely that was a lot more specific than
the tired ramblings of old Ahenakew. Ahenakew has some politically correct
Teflon -- he is aboriginal -- but Elmasry can trump that poker hand: He's a
brown-skinned Muslim from Egypt who speaks with an accent.
Is there any other reason he got away with
his apologia for the murder of Jews but Jim Keegstra the WASP was convicted
for his more passive anti-Semitism?
Time to abolish this foolish law.
Ontario man accused of
posting internet hate

An Ontario man brought before the Canadian Human Rights
Tribunal for allegedly posting hate propaganda online walked out of his
hearing Monday and a subpoena has been issued for his return.
Craig Harrison of Georgetown, Ont., is
accused of posting derogatory remarks — targeting visible minorities,
Francophones and the Trudeau family — in an online forum between 2002
If found guilty in the hearing,
Harrison could face a $10,000 fine and a tribunal cease-and-desist
order barring him from posting hate propaganda on the internet.
If Harrison doesn't comply with the
order, it could be taken before Federal Court and he could face
contempt charges, which could result in jail time.
Harrison raised his voice during the
hearing, interrupting it and forcing a brief adjournment. The hearing
resumed about 20 minutes later, but since Harrison did not return, the
tribunal broke for lunch. When Harrison had failed to show by 1:30
p.m., the tribunal issued a subpoena for his appearance at 9:30 a.m.
This is not the first alleged internet
hate crime to come before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.
In 1997, Ernst Zündel — a Holocaust
denier — was found responsible by the tribunal of using his website to
distribute hate literature. He was deported to his native Germany,
where he is on trial for inciting racial hatred.
Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman, who
filed the complaint about Harrison, said in an interview Monday the
Holocaust is a good example of why harsh words should not be ignored.
"Whether you look at Rwanda or look at
World War Two and the persecution of Jews, it began with the
proliferation of hate propaganda," said Warman.
The case is being argued by Warman and
Canadian Human Rights Commission lawyer Giacomo Vigna before tribunal
member Michel Doucet in Toronto.
Harrison — who flipped through a
magazine while evidence was presented to the tribunal Monday —
allegedly made more than 70 postings on what Warman describes as a
conglomeration of sites for the neo-Nazi, white supremacy movement.
Documents allege derogatory remarks
Documents submitted to the tribunal
said the postings included derogatory remarks directed against
'non-whites' and former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. There were also
verbal attacks against South Asians and Hispanics.
"When you see that, as a Canadian and
as a lawyer, you can't just sit back and not do anything," said Warman,
who has filed six similar complaints with the tribunal.
Warman said he was able to link the
postings — made under the login "realcanadianson" and "rump" — to Craig
Harrison because of an e-mail address and references to the city where
Warman also said some postings claimed
credit for an assault for which Harrison was convicted in 1996. In that
incident, Warman said, a black man was attacked while the assailant
shouted racist slurs. Harrison pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily
harm and was sentenced to jail for two years less a day.
When the assault was mentioned in the
hearing, Harrison raised his voice, and said, "That's slander! Nothing
racist about it," before muttering obscenities. This forced the
adjournment, after which he did not return.
Vigna said it's important to
not take discriminatory acts lightly because of the physical hate
crimes that could follow from them.
"If you don't, you don't ensure you
have a society that is free of discriminating acts ... that can
translate to some serious consequences."
But Harrison's wife, Susen Holmes, who
is also presenting the defence, said it will be difficult to verify
exactly who posted the material. She said it can be proven that a
certain e-mail address and the name "Craig Harrison" were used, but not
who typed in those words.
"Unless you had him sitting in my
house, sitting in front of my computer ... that's all you're going to
prove here," said Holmes.
The hearing is set to continue until
