The US media and the London terror scare
16 Aug 2006
Since August 10, when British authorities arrested two dozen individuals in connection with an alleged plot to blow up a number of airplanes over the Atlantic Ocean, the American mass media has worked ceaselessly to create a climate of fear.
For the first several days after the news of the alleged plot broke, American news programs were virtually unwatchable. The lurid logos and wild, unsubstantiated allegations made a mockery of claims that the networks and cable channels are in the business of “news-gathering.”

Israeli President Katsav:Is Senator Joseph Lieberman a Semite An Albino Or Neither ?
15 Aug 2006
JOSEPH LIEBERMAN could make a stronger case for being an albino than a 'semite'. And the only 'orhodox' thing I can think of about Israeli President Moshe Katsav at this time is an orthodox hypocrite and crook for aiding and abetting British-Israeli Michael Zwebner and his Muslim terrorist charity money laundering suspect 'business' partner with Saudi money ties Mohamed Hadid and their 'UCSY' or Universal Communications Systems pump and dump scam.

Ned Lamont: False Hopes, Bad Terms, and Ticking Clocks
15 Aug 2006
Many people see Ned Lamont’s victory in the Connecticut Democratic Senate primary as a statement of massive disgust at Bush, and at the Democrats for kissing his ass. It is. But Lamont’s victory over Joe Lieberman in the primary is not something that will impact the current intolerable direction things are heading.
