The Military Commissions Act of 2006 governing the treatment of detainees is the culmination of relentless fear-mongering by the Bush administration since the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Because the bill was adopted with lightning speed, barely anyone noticed that it empowers Bush to declare not just aliens, but also U.S. citizens, "unlawful enemy combatants."

Rolling Stone still hadn't learned that 9/11 was done by the
Bush regime when they wrote this article ! Then they learned from the
response they got to this article that one out of three people in the
USA know the Bush regime did 9/11

Wednesday in West Central Florida.
After a traffic stop the driver shot and killed one police officer
and his dog and wounded another.
It was obvious as all the police for a 100 miles circled the area
that they planed on killing the suspect or at least someone like in
Fahrenheit 451 and they did kill him or someone saying he refused to
show his hands, Then the police chief for that area came on TV statewide
and said that they found papers on him indicating people involved in
drug sales and they were going to put those people in jail also related
to this police officer being killed ?
( A little bit of overkill here ? also when they killed the suspect a
live radio interview was in progress and 50 to a 100 shots could be
heard in the background !)

Bush 'super-state' agenda to create American Union is now official
Steve Watson, Paul Watson & Alex Jones | September 28 2006
Journalist Jerome Corsi has received the first documents pertaining to a
FOIA request asking for full disclosure of the SPP office in its
activities towards creating a Pan American Union.
According to a report by World Net Daily,
the documents reveal that the Bush administration is running a "shadow
government" without congressional oversight in conjunction with Canada
and Mexico under the guise of a program "to increase security and to
enhance prosperity among the three countries through greater
Corsi asserts that a wide range of US administrative law is being
re-written in stealth under this program to "integrate" and "harmonize"
with administrative law in Mexico and Canada.
The documents contain references to upwards of 13 working groups within
an entire organized infrastructure that has drawn from officials within
most areas of administrative government including U.S. departments of
State, Homeland Security, Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture,
Transportation, Energy, Health and Human Services, and the office of the
U.S. Trade Representative.
Corsi has further reported that at a recent high-level confab in Banff,
an assistant U.S. secretary of state, Thomas A.
Shannon , chaired a panel that featured a presentation by Prof. Robert
Pastor, author of a book promoting the development of a North American
union as a regional government and the adoption of the amero as a common
monetary currency to replace the dollar and the peso.
The open plan to merge the US with Mexico and Canada and create a Pan
American Union networked by a NAFTA Super Highway has long been a
Globalist brainchild but its very real and prescient implementation on
behalf of the Council on Foreign Relations has finally been reported on
by mainstream news outlets.
After nearly ten years of reporting by Alex Jones and the rest of the
Movement, the establishment press is finally covering serious reports on
the plan for a Pan-American Union, based on recent articles by Human
Events columnist Jerome Corsi.
Back in June World Net Daily reported ,
"The White House has established working groups, under the North
American Free Trade Agreement office in the Department of Commerce, to
implement the Security and Prosperity Partnership, or SPP, signed by
President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and then-Canadian Prime
Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Texas, March 23, 2005."
The article even carries the admission that the Council on Foreign
Relations, often the bane of sophomoric stereotypical caricatures of
paranoid conspiracy theorists, played a fundamental role in crafting the
policy for the homogenization of the US, Canada and Mexico.
"Many SPP working groups appear to be working toward achieving specific
objectives as defined by a May 2005 Council on Foreign Relations task
force report, which presented a blueprint for expanding the SPP
agreement into a North American union that would merge the U.S., Canada
and Mexico into a new governmental form."
This admission is as historical as it is concerning - the CFR moulds the
foundational policy for the elimination of American sovereignty and it
is passed as executive law within weeks. It is once again evident that
the true vestiges of power lie within the ranks of the CFR and the
Trilateral Commission who act on policy decided upon by the big brother
of multinational semi-secret steering societies, the Bilderberg Group.
Up until five or six years ago the CFR largely operated in the shadows,
only publishing its mouthpiece Foreign Affairs, and any inference that
the group held sway in US politics or even existed was met by heckles of
incredulity from the establishment media. Now the Associated Press
openly reports their guiding hand in the drives towards global
The framework on which the American Union is being pegged is the NAFTA
Super Highway (pictured) , a four football-fields-wide leviathan that
stretches from southern Mexico through the US up to Montreal Canada.
Corsi's work cites government websites which carry full planning details
of the Super Highway and its construction has already begun in Texas
with no congressional oversight whatsoever. The Trans-Texas Corridor is
being overseen by The Texas Department of
Transportation (TxDOT) and the contract is owned by the Cintra
corporation which in turn is owned by the King of Spain Juan Carlos. The
project is being financed by the implementation of a toll that will be
collected by means of GPS tracking devices installed in all vehicles and
also envelops many connecting roads to the highway.
The NAFTA Super Highway will allow vehicles, people and goods to travel
from Mexico, into the heart of America and up to Canada with little
impediment, effectively erasing America's borders wholesale. Coupled
with Bush's blanket amnesty program, the Pan American Union is the final
jigsaw piece for the total dismantling of America as we know it.

The Republic Crashes Down
Yesterday the New York Times had an editorial attacking the growing
tyranny of the Bush administration called " Rushing Off a Cliff ."
"Here's what happens when this
irresponsible Congress railroads a profoundly important bill to serve
the mindless politics of a midterm election: The Bush administration
uses Republicans' fear of losing their majority to push through ghastly
ideas about antiterrorism that will make American troops less safe and
do lasting damage to our 217-year-old nation of laws - while actually
doing nothing to protect the nation from terrorists. Democrats betray
their principles to avoid last-minute attack ads. Our democracy is the
Immediately Chris Floyd wrote a response
which expressed relief that perhaps the NYT was finally starting to "get
it," but which also said it was too little too late.
"So the New York Times has finally roused itself
and laid out the straight facts about the presidential tyranny that has
been erected around the pathetic figure of George W. Bush: Rushing Off a
Cliff The Times is to be lauded for this eloquent and powerful depiction
of our degraded political state, and you should read it in full. But a
few vital points must mitigate our praise of this otherwise remarkable
"First, and most importantly: it comes very,
very late in the game - perhaps too late. All of the tyrannical powers
enumerated by the editorial were claimed - and put into practice - by
Bush and Cheney five years ago. "
"Second, the editorial, as strong as it is,
doesn't go far enough: We not looking at 'our generation's version of
the Alien and Sedition Acts' as the newspaper puts it; things are much
farther gone than that. What we are looking at is the death knell of the
constitutional republic of the United States of America.. Bush has long
claimed dictatorial powers in secret; if Congress writes these
liberty-gutting strictures into law, then the fundamental nature of the
American state will be transformed. It will not be, in any sense - not
even formally - a free country anymore. All of our rights and liberties
will be the 'gift' of the President, who can bestow them - or revoke
them - as he sees fit."
Maybe, indeed, people are starting to wake
up. But is it too late? The congress is already dead, corrupted and
blackmailed beyond all recognition. We can't vote them all out because
the elections are now fully rigged and controlled by the caba, computer
voting and the corporations. Aparently as long as the people have their
television and beer they put up with anything, at least until they are
being hauled off somewhere and by then it is definitely too late. Does
anyone anywhere have any idea how to get out of this dictatorship
Molly Ivans also writes about the torture bill
just passed. "With a smug stroke of his pen, President Bush is set
to wipe out a
safeguard against illegal imprisonment that has endured as a cornerstone
of legal justice since the Magna Carta."
Death by torture by Americans was first reported in 2003 in a New York
Times article by Carlotta Gall. The military had announced the prisoner
died of a heart attack, but when Gall saw the death certificate, written
in English and issued by the military, it said the cause of death was
homicide. The "heart attack" came after he had been beaten so often on
this legs that they had "basically been pulpified," according to the
The story of why and how it took the Times so long to print this
information is in the current edition of the Columbia Journalism Review.
The press in general has been late and slow in reporting torture, so
very few Americans have any idea how far it has spread. The congress and
the president are basically telling the world: "You can torture our
soldiers if you want to. That's okay with us." Three basic pillars
of our Republic have broken down. The congress is fully blackmailed
and bribed. The free press is bought up by the cabal corporations and
truth is forbidden. And the elections are taken over by hackable
computer machines with no paper trail which were built by the
Ivins finishes her essay this way:
"Fellow citizens, this bill throws out legal and moral restraints as the
president deems it necessary-these are fundamental principles of basic
decency, as well as law.
"I'd like those supporting this evil bill to spare me one affliction: Do
not, please, pretend to be shocked by the consequences of this
legislation. And do not pretend to be shocked when the world begins
comparing us to the Nazis."
