(No longer very) Current Events from an Indigenous Perspective

We attempted to use this as a "Current Events" page in order to disclose the indigenous perspective of all our relations, rather than to use the indigenous perspective to disclose current events. To this end we will for the most part fail. This page was started after the large sold out dis-information campaign of 2001, but it proved far too time consuming for a working man to maintain by himself. Let it be said, that human beings are too often subjugated by lies often repeated, even if the lies make no sense or are even counter to one's sense of justice, logic, and intelligence. Today's mainstream "media" is one such programming tool. Without safeguards (regulation) to prevent greedy powermongers from controlling the news, a democracy will turn upon its own people. Money and the lies that buys, does not equal truth. Delusion is not clarity. Without clarity human beings make errors. In that context, technologically powerful human beings make huge errors.

"Democracy will bloom when human beings are capable of acting wisely and compassionately, or else it will remain as a glorified curse, as the madness of a lynch mob or of delusional and obsequious slaves conforming to their puppet-master’s whims."

In the end, the truth always wins, and the forces of confsuion get hit with their own creations. Toward that end, check out the Daily News and Current Events at Amy Goodman's Website, DEMOCRACYNOW.ORG, THE INDIGENOUS ENVIRONMENTAL NETWORK, RAINFOREST ACTION NETWORK, The CENTER FOR MEDIA AND DEMOCRACY, The CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY, The ORGANIC CONSUMERS ASSOCIATION, and, PRAYERDANCE at WORDPRESS.COM.

If Not for Oil, War is good for a Bankrupt Nation like America:

Iraq or Iran: America's Regime Change policy: An Interview by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now with Stephen Kinzer, Author "All the Shah's Men, An American Coup And The Roots of Middle East Terror "In 1953, the CIA and British intelligence orchestrated a coup d'etat that toppled the democratically elected government of Iran. The government of Mohammad Mossadegh. The aftershocks of the coup are still being felt. In 1951 Prime Minister Mossadegh roused Britain's ire when he nationalized the oil industry. Mossadegh argued that Iran should begin profiting from its vast oil reserves which had been exclusively controlled by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. It later became known as British Petroleum. (BP) After considering military action, Britain opted for a coup d'état. President Harry Truman rejected the idea, but when Dwight Eisenhower took over the White House, he ordered the CIA to embark on one of its first covert operations against a foreign government. The coup was led by an agent named Kermit Roosevelt, the grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt. The CIA leaned on a young, insecure Shah to issue a decree dismissing Mossadegh as prime minister. Kermit Roosevelt had help from Norman Schwarzkopf's father: Norman Schwarzkopf."

Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq: an interview with Stephen Kinzer (Interview on NPR "Fresh Air"-- April 18, 2006). Throughout the twentieth century and into the beginning of the twenty-first, the United States repeatedly used its military power, and that of its clandestine services, to overthrow governments that refused to protect American interests. Each time, it cloaked its intervention in the rhetoric of national security and liberation. In most cases, however, it acted mainly for economic reasons -- specifically, to establish, promote, and defend the right of Americans to do business around the world without interference.

Robert Fisk on Iraq, Palestine and the Failure of the U.S. Corporate Media to Challenge Authority Interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now. Friday, April 7th, 2006. "Well, I'm surprised the military have to plant stories, because I find that an awful lot of my colleagues are quite happy to go along with stories planted or otherwise. You’ve only got to see the number of times on the front page of the New York Times or the L.A. Times or the Washington Post when the phrase “American officials say” appears, particularly the L.A. Times. I can give an example of that, in which a whole story is repeatedly sourced, after 2003, when we know there weren’t any weapons of mass destruction, when we know the press was misled totally in the United States and went along with the war party."

On Cheney/ Rumsfeld's order, US outsourcing special ops, intelligence to Iraq terror group, intelligence officials say Just as the US Goverbment funded the Taliban and Al Quaeda in its war against the Soviet backd Afghani Regime, just as it backed Saddam Hussein in his fight against Iran, now it it funding the MEK (a known terrorist group) as an intelligence source and counter insurgency force in Iran according to this report.

US Taxpayers Pay for Bush's Private Army Contractors (Read Mercenaries) The reasoning for a profit motivated military is that if we give them enough money, they will be happy to die for us. Since we have the money, why not make some more money on top of that. Mercenary contractors' deaths aren't counted among the tally of more than 350 U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq. No one is sure how many private workers have been killed, or, indeed, even how many are toiling in Iraq for the U.S. government. Estimates range from under 10,000 to more than 20,000 - which could make private contractors the largest U.S. coalition partner ahead of Britain's 11,000 troops. Who pays? Oct 30, 2003

U.S. Plan For Flu Pandemic Insurrection Revealed: Washington Post Easter Sunday 2006 (A day which one hides the news) said in part;

To keep the 1.8 million federal workers healthy and productive through a pandemic, the Bush administration would tap into its secure stash of medications, cancel large gatherings, encourage schools to close and shift air traffic controllers to the busier hubs -- probably where flu had not yet struck. Retired federal employees would be summoned back to work, and National Guard troops could be dispatched to cities facing possible 'insurrection,' said Jeffrey W. Runge, chief medical officer at the Department of Homeland Security. The administration hopes to help contain the first cases overseas by rushing in medical teams and supplies. "If there is a small outbreak in a country, it may behoove us to introduce travel restrictions,' Runge said, 'to help stamp out that spark.'

However, even an effective containment effort would merely postpone the inevitable, said Ellen P. Embrey, deputy assistant secretary for force health preparedness and readiness at the Pentagon. 'Unfortunately, we believe the forest fire will burn before we are able to contain it overseas, and it will arrive on our shores in multiple locations,' she said. As Katrina illustrated, a central issue would be "who is ultimately in charge and how the agencies will be coordinated," said former assistant surgeon general Susan Blumenthal. The Department of Health and Human Services would take the lead on medical aspects, but Homeland Security would have overall authority, she noted. 'How are those authorities going to come together?' Essentially, the president would be in charge, the White House official replied. Bush is expected to adopt post-Katrina recommendations that a new interagency task force coordinate the federal response and a high-level Disaster Response Group resolve disputes among agencies or states. Neither entity has been created."

"Padilla was born in Brooklyn, was brought up in Chicago, became a gang member, and was convicted several times. In prison he converted to Islam. After travel abroad he was arrested at O'Hare Airport, Chicago, on May 8, 2002. He was flown to New York by Justice Department agents, who served him with a warrant as a material witness before a grand jury investigating the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. A federal judge set a hearing on the warrant and appointed a lawyer for him, Donna Newman. But two days before the hearing, Padilla was flown to a Navy brig in South Carolina and held as an "enemy combatant." There he remains. For the last sixteen months Ms. Newman has been trying to speak with Padilla, her client. A federal trial judge decided that she should be able to do so for the limited purpose of getting any facts casting doubt on his designation as an enemy combatant. But the Justice Department objected even to that, saying that any contact with a lawyer might hurt the effort to extract information from Padilla by destroying the desired "atmosphere of dependency and trust between the subject and interrogator."

UNPROVEN: The Controversy over Justifying War in Iraq by David Cortright, Alistair Millar, George A. Lopez, and Linda Gerber, Fourth Freedom Forum, June 2003

An Iraq Timeline Summary

The US and the UK submitted forged documents to the United Nations in attempting to prove (unsuccessfully that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. Worse Bush lied to the American people about his proof of such as well as to congress.

George Bush Senior submitted False Documents to convince the Saudis that Iraq presented a military threat.When George H. W. Bush ordered American forces to the Persian Gulf – to reverse Iraq's August 1990 invasion of Kuwait – part of the administration case was that an Iraqi juggernaut was also threatening to roll into Saudi Arabia. Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated in mid–September that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border, threatening the key US oil supplier. But when the St. Petersburg Times in Florida acquired two commercial Soviet satellite images of the same area, taken at the same time, no Iraqi troops were visible near the Saudi border – just empty desert. "It was a pretty serious fib," says Jean Heller, the Times journalist who broke the story.

HERSH, The New Yorker, Here we see how the Iraqi National Congress, or I.N.C., the exile group headed by Ahmad Chalabi, has become an arm of the White House. By last fall, the operation rivalled both the C.I.A. and the Pentagon’s own Defense Intelligence Agency, the D.I.A., as President Bush’s main source of intelligence regarding Iraq’s possible possession of weapons of mass destruction and connection with Al Qaeda, but such "evidence" was merely fabricated by an adminstration who already had decided to go to war.. 5/12/03

An Interview with John Dean on "Buzzflash", June 17, 2003. "Rumsfeld's team -- no doubt with Dick Cheney's support -- knew what they wanted and managed to intimidate the rest of the intelligence community into agreeing with them. That they, in effect, had a pre-determined conclusion and simply ignored any and all information that conflicted with their conclusion...Actually, I was stunned when I went back and pulled all of his pre-war statements about WMDs. None of them is the slightest bit equivocal. To the contrary, he speaks like a man who has actually seen the weapons."

Admiral John Poindexter and his Domestic Spy Network (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or Darpa, a research arm of the Pentagon): WASHINGTON, New York Times, Aug 2003— The official who oversaw a plan for the Pentagon to run a terrorist futures-trading market is resigning under pressure, a senior Defense Department official said today. John M. Poindexter, a retired rear admiral who was President Ronald Reagan's national security adviser, is stepping down "within a few weeks," the defense official said, after the disclosure of a proposal that outraged lawmakers and embarrassed senior Pentagon officials. The plan was to create an online trading parlor that would have rewarded investors who forecast terrorist attacks, assassinations and coups. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld did not personally fire Admiral Poindexter, but the defense official said that Mr. Rumsfeld agreed that the admiral had become too much of a political lightning rod and that it was time for him to go.

Mr. Poindexter was indicted on March 16, 1988 on seven federal felony charges stemming from the Iran-Contra scandal (drugs for arms). The counts included participating in a criminal conspiracy with Colonel Oliver North, Air Force Maj. Gen. Richard V. Secord (Ret.) and Albert Hakim; conspiring to obstruct official inquiries and proceedings; two counts of obstructing Congress; and two counts of false statements to Congress. He was prosecuted by Associate Counsel Dan K. Webb, Christian J. Mixter, Howard M. Pearl and Louise R. Radin, all working in tandem.

Poindexter was convicted of all five counts on April 7, 1990. Mr. Poindexter was convicted of criminal conspiracy with Colonel Oliver North, Air Force Maj. Gen. Richard V. Secord (Ret.) and Albert Hakim (obstruction of congressional inquiries and proceedings, false statements, falsification, destruction and removal of documents); two counts of obstruction of Congress and two counts of false statements.

Poindexter moved on to Syntek Technologies in 1996, a "small high technology firm with contracts in domestic and international defense and commercial business". Syntek has acted as a contractor for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Poindexter's new employer. As a vice president at Syntek, Poindexter worked on Genoa -- an "intelligence mining, information harvesting" software package designed to data mine large databases. Genoa's "goal is to produce better national decisions through structured, collective reasoning." It allows interactive online meetings and collaboration.

On Thursday, February 14, 2002, John Poindexter was appointed by President George W. Bush to lead the Information Assurance Office at the Department of Defense's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Despite Mr. Poindexter's criminal record of lying to Congress

He oversaw development of a program at Darpa that proposed spying electronically on Americans to monitor potential terrorists. That program, originally called Total Information Awareness, was envisioned by Admiral Poindexter as a sweeping electronic surveillance plan that would forestall terrorism by tapping into computer databases to collect credit, financial, medical and travel records. But this year Congress barred the program from spying on Americans, and the Pentagon changed its name to Terrorism Information Awareness.The latest furor centered on an initiative under Admiral Poindexter's control called Policy Analysis Market. Under the plan, traders were to be able to begin registering on Friday to trade futures in Middle East developments as of Oct. 1 on a Web site program, which the Pentagon was operating with private partners.

It is at the IAO that Mr. Poindexter began work on Total Information Awareness, a plan to watch Americans like the Stasi watched East Germans -- but using technology this time, instead of people.

PSYOPS and Operation Mongoose from AfroCuba Web

The USG's unprecedented exponential increase of funding domestic spying, psyops, propaganda, and totalitarianism implementations From the Sierra Times


PSYOPS: Psychological Operations

Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) warfare are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of organizations, groups, and individuals. Today since the war on terrorism is ongoing world wide, PSYOPS has become activated domestically as well. Given the dramatic financial support in Congress and the White House, it is generally agreed that both domestic and foreign psyops will become exponentially expanded in the years to come.

Did you ever think that perhaps the beliefs that you have become to know and trust, have been dictated to you through your own government or another's covert operations? If not, perhaps it may be best to think this out very carefully. The relationship between PSYOPS, social engineering, political marketing, corporate economic interests, the military, and so called independent non-profit "Think Tanks" and "Policy Institutes" have become united on many fronts and they are growing. There's big bucks out there now, for the "right stuff".

Post Script 2010

It is not a coincidence that all of our links to the military psychological oeperations (below) regarding domestic operations has disappeared. Good work guys, you are on the ball! You will indubitably receive your just due in 50 years plus or minus.

From a research study funded by the Dept. of Defense in 2000 "Chat Rooms and Messaging. Internet chat rooms may also have potential PSYOP uses, in that guided discussions could perhaps be used to influence how citizens think about certain topics. This example is already in practical use with the candidates in the U.S. presidential elections. China has begun to set up monitored chat rooms so its citizens can discuss a wide range of matters. In the Chinese approach, offending messages are deleted before, or just after, they have been sent to everyone. Such chat rooms might be a way to allow citizens of a country to air their grievances. While the originating point of a chat message is not hard to discover, there are ways around such monitoring. In China, for instance, a great many chat messages come from Internet cafes, and so cannot be traced back to specific people."

Public Diplomacy or Propaganda? Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 The Organized Planned Deception of the American Public by its own government is not an exception but rather the rule. This is a letter by Ronald Reagan released through the Freedom of Information Act (you remember that one -- the act that was rescinded by President Bush after 9/11?) which created funding a specialized tax payer supported agency under the NSC (National Security Council) whose purpose was to lie to and propagandize the taxpayers.

Bush’s Choice: Messianism or Pragmatism? by Anatol Lieven from openDemocracy.net, February 22, 2005

"We Do Not Deserve these People", by Anatol Lieven: "To understand how the Bush administration was able to manipulate the public into supporting the Iraq war one has to look for deeper explanations. They would include the element of messianism embodied in American civic nationalism, with its quasi-religious belief in the universal and timeless validity of its own democratic system, and in its right and duty to spread that system to the rest of the world. This leads to a genuine belief that American soldiers can do no real wrong because they are spreading ‘freedom’. Also of great importance – at least until the Iraqi insurgency rubbed American noses in the horrors of war – has been the development of an aesthetic that sees war as waged by the US as technological, clean and antiseptic; and thanks to its supremacy in weaponry, painlessly victorious. Victory over the Iraqi army in 2003 led to a new flowering of megalomania in militarist quarters."

American Theocracy: Kevin Phillip's New Book, from How the GOP Became God's Own Party Sunday, April 2, 2006; Page B03, the Washington Post

American Theocracy a review at Scoop.com: He then turns to the surge of fundamentalist and evangelical religion in the United States, outlining the way a long tradition of radical and sectarian religion has taken an unprecedented political role under George W. Bush, as more and more Republicans think in apocalyptic terms and seek to shape domestic and foreign policy around religion. Finally, he documents how Wall Street and the business interests so closely allied with Washington have discarded the principles of sound finance that once characterized Republican fiscal policy and have literally mortgaged the country’s economic health to financial speculation, accompanied by an unprecedented level of public and private debt.

Review of "American Dynasty by Kevin Phillips: There is nothing new about Texans rising to the top in American politics. Dwight Eisenhower hailed from Denison and Lyndon Johnson from Stonewall, and Phillips has no beef with either of them. Neither of these national leaders, however, was a religious fundamentalist like George W. Bush. It's the certitude of our current president's born-againism that disturbs Phillips the most. Somehow his descriptions of oil greed or CIA intrigue or Beltway manipulation are less alarmist than the long chapter devoted to Bush's evangelism.(Mother Jones)

Why it should take a court order for a government agency to release their reports (paid by the taxpayers) which affect the health of half the population is a national disgrace. (AP, April 2004)

RESISTANCE by John Trudell from his book, Stickman

"We want to be free of a value system that is being imposed on us. We do not want to participate in that value system. We don't want to change that value system. We want to remove it from our lives forever.

"We must never underestimate our enemy. Our enemy is committed against us twenty-four hours a day. They use one hundred percent of their effort to maintain their materialistic status quo. One hundred percent of their effort goes into deceiving us and manipulating us against each other. We have to devote our lives, we have to make our commitment, we have to follow a way of life that says we are going to resist that forever ... a resistance: something that we can pass on as strength to the coming generations."

"A resistance where organizational egos don't get in the way. A resistance where individual egos do not get in the way. A resistance where the infiltrators and the provocateurs and the liars and the betrayers and the traitors, they do not get in the way ... a resistance of consciousness. This is our obligation to the earth. And only by fulfilling our obligation to the earth can we fulfill our obligations to the people.

"We must go beyond the arrogance of human rights. We must go beyond the ignorance of civil rights. We must step into the reality of natural rights because all of the natural world has a right to existence and we are only a small part of it. There can be no trade-off."
