Bush Orders Homeland Security To Open Religious Center

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Bush continues to violate the Constitution, this time unilaterally creating a "religious center" at Homeland Security, the neo-nazi police state aparatus. The first five Amendments are the most important and were put in the Constitution by our Founding Fathers themselves for good reasons.

From the Washington Post:
President Bush ordered the Department of Homeland Security yesterday to create a center for faith-based and community initiatives within 45 days to eliminate regulatory, contracting and programmatic barriers to providing federal funds to religious groups to deliver social services, the White House announced last night.

Pressed both by churches that have not received privately raised Hurricane Katrina relief funds as promised and by the outpouring of help of religious groups to Gulf Coast storm victims, Bush also called on the department by September "to identify all existing barriers . . . that unlawfully discriminate against, or otherwise discourage or disadvantage the participation" of such groups in federal programs.
The reason why those churches didn't get lots of loot is because they are not taxed so they can do charity. If they are "for profit" then they better put themselves under our control and this means no preaching because of the Constitutional wall between church and state. You want to preach then you can't be on the government payroll.

Lots of Americans selflessly opened their purses for the victims of the hurricanes. Not one of them got a penny back from the government. They could, if they were in the right tax brackets, get a tax break but that was all they got.

Bush secretly and illegally promised the mega churches and various right wing churches that they could pretend to be donating services (no money, just their buildings, etc) and the government would pay them as if they were businesses and they could still prosyletize their victims! This was squelched and now they are ticked off at him and he needs their bovine support for his wars and misadventures such as handing America over to foreign powers. Also, to keep Congress within striking range of stealing elections with the thinnest of majorities via rigged voting machines, he has to have at least 35% of the population beholden to him.

Not content with unleashing a very vicious and violent religious civil war in Iraq, this crazy man is trying to do the same here in America. The Republicans will go down in history as the party that betrayed America and burned both the flag and Constitution. The invisible fires are rapidly eating away at the very fabric of our democracy. As Russia pointed out just this week.

Rachel Corrie Play Censored In NYC Due Pressure From Religious Bigots

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

A hit London play about IDF victim, Rachel Corrie, was cancelled indefinitely in NYC due to pressure from religious bigots who are terrified that Americans might get the truth about her murder despite the media wall that prevented her story from being seen here in America. I saw the video of how she was murdered and it was obvious, the driver of the bulldozer saw her and maliciously ran her over. Time for the NYT which lied about this to come clean not to mention, the other media!

From Common Dreams:
The Flights for cast and crew had been booked; the production schedule delivered; there were tickets advertised on the Internet. The Royal Court Theatre production of "My Name Is Rachel Corrie," the play I co-edited with Alan Rickman, was transferring later this month to the New York Theatre Workshop, home of the musical "Rent," following two sold-out runs in London and several awards.

We always felt passionately that it was a piece of work that needed to be seen in the United States. Created from the journals and e-mails of American activist Rachel Corrie, telling of her journey from her adolescence in Olympia, Wash., to her death under an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza at the age of 23, we considered it a unique American story that would have a particular relevance for audiences in Rachel's home country. After all, she had made her journey to the Middle East in order "to meet the people who are on the receiving end of our [American] tax dollars," and she was killed by a U.S.-made bulldozer while protesting the demolition of Palestinian homes.

But last week the New York Theatre Workshop canceled the production — or, in its words, "postponed it indefinitely." The political climate, we were told, had changed dramatically since the play was booked. As James Nicola, the theater's 's artistic director, said Monday, "Listening in our communities in New York, what we heard was that after Ariel Sharon's illness and the election of Hamas in the recent Palestinian elections, we had a very edgy situation." Three years after being silenced for good, Rachel was to be censored for political reasons."
This story was from the LA Times. The NYT also had a tiny article at the bottom of a series of other announcements. The reporter wasn't very curious about the cancellation and didn't dig very deeply into who was pressuring the theater to cancel and the silliness that Sharon, a living corpse, would be disturbed by the revelation that he was the director of a military operation bent on murder, like hahaha. This butcher loved massacres.

In the news, this item was mentioned only 18 times according to Google. Many times, in regular news stories, you get at least 300 entries. In this case, a few major outlets mentioned the news but most didn't do anything beyond the barest information and none examined the original story which was, the IDF was trying to intimidate foreigners who were standing up the brutalization of Palestinians and one of them, Rachel, was maliciously and obviously run over and I saw it, the bulldozer driver even ground the blade into her, backing up very slowly while people screamed and screamed at him, I had to cover my ears!

Then he was let off the hook like all the IDF murderers, citing "accidental" killing which was an obvious lie.

Like the video of Bush laughing while reading "My Pet Goat" after hearing the news that the terrorist attack he desperately wanted succeeded, this video has never been shown to America except for Michael Moore's film, "Farenheit 911" which the media screamed was filled with lies and desperate moves were made to hide it or belittle it. So it was with poor Rachel Corrie. Now, even a simple play based on her emails, can't appear in public in NYC because this might alert people to the true facts of her case and that is verboten.

I hate this with a passion. There are many moves afoot to follow the hideous path chosen by Zionists, the desire to turn various places into religious dictatorships, what I call, "Religious Fascism", this monster is devouring billions of people. Here is a typical example here in America: Missouri Bill To Make Christianity Official Religion:
Missouri legislators in Jefferson City considered a bill that would name Christianity the state's official "majority" religion.

House Concurrent Resolution 13 has is pending in the state legislature.

Many Missouri residents had not heard about the bill until Thursday.

Karen Aroesty of the Anti-defamation league, along with other watch-groups, began a letter writing and email campaign to stop the resolution.

The resolution would recognize "a Christian god," and it would not protect minority religions, but "protect the majority's right to express their religious beliefs.
The Anti-defamation League is worried this will be used to attack Jews. Well, duh! Alas, they can't see this when Jews attack other religions or other people, when they impose religious bigottry on other nations! In Europe, people are being put in prison because they hold beliefs the states don't want such as the Holocaust deniers. This is giving obvious Nazis the status of victims of persecution and increasingly, people chafe at the hamfisted efforts to control debate about history, this is totally wrong. One wins these debates by arguing facts, not mugging the other side and then gagging it.

The Missouri bill is typical of many religious bills being considered across America in places where support for shipping all the Jews to Israel is very strong. These people, and I know them well!---dream of creating a New Jerusalem in America, one that is this nightmare religious bigot state that is only for Christians! And they use the political positions and excuses Zionists cooked up for creating their slave state in the Holy Land. For everyone is a slave to the Jews there and here, everyone will be slaves of the right wing Christians who want no secular protections for those of us who are not right wing Christian Nazis! They want to drive us out, too, to die.

The entire underpinning of the Jews only state is a poison in this world, many radical Muslims embrace this ideology and feel justified in persecuting minority religions because their vicious neighbors are doing exactly that while celebrating tribal/religous bigot lifestyles as the ultimate way humanity should live!

This disgusting ideology is the latest branch of fascism to grow on blood soaked soil and it is a mere twig compared to the nasty tree of the same that many are trying to plant here. The ten Amendments to the Constitution are, I believe, universal. All nations should have it as their bedrock, even in the Middle East: seperation of Church and State and freedom of speech being the top two items! As an America citizen, I am proud of this Constitution and angry that the top provisions in the Amendments are being destroyed thanks to various religious factions desperately trying to build extra-legal entities that allow them to bully and abuse other humans.

I don't care what religion it is, this has to stop, now!

A Colorado Teacher is Censored:
About 150 high school students walked out of class to protest a decision to put a teacher on leave while they investigate remarks he made about President Bush in class, including that some people compare Bush to Adolf Hitler.

The protest came Thursday as administrators began investigating whether Overland High School teacher Jay Bennish violated a policy requiring balancing viewpoints in the classroom, Cherry Creek School District spokeswoman Tustin Amole said.
The joke online is, Bush can't be compared to Hitler, after all, Hitler actually was in the midst of battle and got wounded and he was good at giving speeches and no one pulled his strings. Bush is more like Henry the VI, ineffectual and bumbling.

Again and again, people are censored because we aren't supposed to talk about fascism and the meaning of fascists and worrying about creeping fascism. Many Jewish people want to isolate the issue, pretending it was only a Hitler thing rather than understanding its true nature and roots and why it is thriving today.

Here is a quote from the head of the theater group who cancelled the play:
“The uniform answer we got was that the fantasy that we could present the work of this writer simply as a work of art without appearing to take a position was just that, a fantasy,” Nicola was quoted saying in The New York Times The play was a hit at the Royal Court Theater in London last year."
Lord forbid that people not look at a bloody murder as a bloody murder. We have to appreciate it as mere esthetics, first!

Gah. Murder should outrage us and horrify us! 'The Passion of Christ" is a hideous movie because it looks at the Bibical descriptions of the Roman execution of a Jewish dissident and the film maker had to make up all sorts of salacious details that were not in any record, all aimed at getting people aroused with the macabre theatrical bloody events, in the case of the Corrie play, the bloody end was barely visible, it focused on the girl, herself, a clear counterpart to another girl whose life was snuffed by fascists, Anne Frank.

The Electronic Infantata wants to do some protests concerning this censorship of Rachel's life.
Please endorse this initiative, and join this coalition. It's not meant to replace any plans that groups may already have for March 16th or individual responses to the cancellation of the play (expressing feelings to the NYTW, writing op-eds, etc.) but to support them. In fact, we are hoping that a unified action, world-wide, and with press coverage will ensure that Rachel's words are heard more widely than ever and, through her words, her message of human rights and justice will be heard as well. If you already have an event planned for March 16, perhaps reading from Rachel's e-mails can be incorporated into or before/after your event. Groups and individuals can sign on.
I hope this will force a retraction of the censorship and Americans can finally see what the rest of Europe can see so freely.

Free speech for everyone! Even fascists.

Iraq Erupts In Religious Frenzy Killing--Sadr Very Pleased

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

As expected, the demolition of the mosque in Samarra has triggered a wave of tremendous violence across Iraq as Shia (Shiites) blame Sunnis. We have no idea who did it but the people were wearing Secret Police Commandos' uniforms and masks.

From the NY Times:
Religious leaders called for restraint after the attack on the golden-domed shrine, located in the volatile town of Samarra. The shrine housed the tombs of two revered leaders of Shiite Islam and symbolized the place where the Imam Mahdi, a mythical, messianic figure, disappeared from this earth. Believers in the imam say he will return when the apocalypse is near, to cleanse the world of its evils.

Sunni Arab politicians said that more than 25 Sunni mosques across Iraq had been attacked in retaliation, although there was no independent confirmation of the number.

The blast in Samarra took place at about 7 a.m. and shook the city, a Sunni-dominated area that is nevertheless sacred to Shiites. The gunmen entered the shrine and handcuffed guards in the building, then set about planting the explosives, an official of the provincial governorate said. There were no immediate reports of casualties, but the golden dome was entirely destroyed, as well as three-quarters of the structure.
The earliest stories think Sunnis wearing fake uniforms did this but what if the uniforms were what Sadr's guys were wearing? They are the ones who had easy access to these garments and they knew the code words and they had handcuffs, etc.
In Baghdad, the American ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, said in a televised statement that the attack on the shrine was a "heinous crime" deliberately intended to foment strife, and that the United States would help to rebuild the structure.

The bombing of the shrine in Samarra came after two days of vicious bloodshed and political turmoil. A marketplace bombing in Baghdad and other attacks on Tuesday that killed 28 people, and violence on Monday that killed at least 26 people, signaled that a period of relative calm during political talks had come to an abrupt end.
The Sunni didn't want to end the talks. The American rulers wanted the talks to continue so the Sunni could get some political power. So the list of who wanted these talks to end quickly are very short. At the top of the list is Sadr.

Once again, the idea of the Apocalypse pops up. People want this to happen. Millions of Muslims, millions of Christians and quite a few other religions. This mental disorder is very powerful, very potent and very violent. They don't plan for a future because there is, by definition, no future.

As Babylon burns as it blows up and as it writhes, our government rituallistically says they will rebuild it all yet we can't rebuild squat since we are going bankrupt and aside from that, anything built will be destroyed. The palaces we refitted, for example, were handed over the the Shiite run govenment and within hours was totally looted and stand now as ruins.

Here is some more damning information leading me to suspect the bombers are not Sunni: From Associated Press:
Khalilzad has urged the Iraqis to form a unity government in which nonsectarian figures control the ministries of Defense, which runs the army, and Interior, which is responsible for the police.

The current interior minister, Bayan Jabr, is a member of al-Hakim's party. His commandos have been accused by Sunni Arabs of widespread human rights abuses against Sunni civilians.
Both Sadr and he are yelling that no one can protect the Shia from attacks except themselves. So they want to be able to terrorize the Sunni, they want control of the vital military/police forces. They also want the Americans to leave pretty soon since they feel they can do whatever they want and you know this will be some sort of ugly bloodbath.

Here is the Tower of Babel which western artists used as their model for many centuries. It is also in Samarra.
The people of many nations, many religions, have poured into Babylon this last three years, speaking many languages, precious little communication going on, they have set to quarrelling. From the Bible:

1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As men moved eastward, [a] they found a plain in Shinar [b] and settled there.
3 They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth."

5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. 6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."

8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel [c] —because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
Maybe 1% of our troops and diplomats and operatives in Iraq speak any of the languages spoken there. And even within the language, the religious divisions are tremendous and growing thanks to Americans using violence to create a liberal state.

Of course, we had no intention of liberality, we wanted only to have a fake front liberalism while screaming at liberals at home, Bush and his gang would turn around and smile and tell the Muslims they wanted civil rights for women and freedom of speech and religion and then they would do the opposite here at home and there in Iraq. So things go from bad to worse thanks to insincere and downright evil intentions.

The screamfest at the stalwart Palestinians are beginning to backfire. America is again, losing huge status playing the bully boy for Israel. Then we go to Iraq to mediate between rival religions that have hated each other for literally 1,000 years.

The religious riots are spreading like wildfire. From the BBC:
Christian mobs rampaged through the city attacking Muslims in retaliation for anti-Christian riots in the north.

"Thousands of people who have been displaced from their homes are now sheltered at the police and army barracks," the official said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the authorities in Bauchi in northern Nigerian imposed a curfew after at least 13 people were killed in a sectarian riot.

The Bauchi riot followed violence over the weekend in the two northern towns of Maiduguri and Katsina, which began as demonstrations against the Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

More than 10,000 people died in communal violence across the country in the first few years following Nigeria's return to democratic rule in 1999, but in recent months these clashes have less frequent.
Another state we are deep inside, meddling in bad ways, is Nigeria. We are demanding the rebels release the kidnapped oil workers and surrender to us so we can pump all the oil without paying them hardly anything for it.

Meanwhile, at home, many Gulf War I vets are dying from Depleted Uranium. From
In the article Arthur Bernklau, executive director of Veterans for Constitutional Law, reportedly wrote that "thousands of our military have suffered and died from, [and depleted uranium] has finally been identified as the cause of this sickness, eliminating the guessing. The terrible truth is now being revealed." Bernklau went on to detail several alarming statistics. The historical disability rate amongst soldiers last century was about 5 percent, although it approached 10 percent during Vietnam. But due to the use of depleted uranium in the battlefield, 56 percent of the 580,400 solders that served in the first Gulf War were on Permanent Medical Disability by 2000. 11,000 Gulf War veterans are already dead. Now 518,739 Gulf War Veterans, almost all of them, are currently on medical disability.
This is all so sad. Aside from them dying, their children are being born with all sorts of illnesses and genetic defects. We made a deal with the devil to win no matter what so we ended up using the devil's tools, lying to ourselves that this is all for the good.

Things are going to get worse, alas. No one is willing to let go of anyone's throats so all will attempt to strangle each other. and remember, whoever is orchestrating things loves magic numbers and the big, big magic number of them all is 6/6/6. Namely, the beginning of June, this year.

Can't wait.

Mourning the Death of Beloved Children

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

I can't say that I know how it feels to lose a beloved child, I can only call upon that wonderful gift given to us by the Goddesses, to feel sympathy when I hear of people losing the dearest part of themselves. One of our readers has sustained such a great loss, and I want him to know, we care.

I learned this from an email from another reader. Since he has been private about this, I won't say who it is, only please remember, everyone, we come onto this lovely planet and we live, and love and loving is all there really is that you can carry beyond the Gates of Death. There is nothing else, not anything, just love, and love is all there really is, deep inside, it is what keeps us not only alive but living, not entombed in eternal death but alive, to feel, for feeling love is what our souls are, they can only exist when there is love and love is everything and the end of everything.

Readers of this blog can probably guess that I am not an atheist. I have very strong beliefs based on my own life experiences. When I was a child, I died for a short while. Passing through the Gates of Death, I learned many things very suddenly, I learned that up is down and in is out and heavy is light and light is dark. And where all these things merge is where I was going and I was afraid.

And out of the chaos came a bolt of white light like a comet, it was Pegasus. I grabbed hold and he flew out of there and I fell to the ground in real time and space to see my father's tears streaming down his face and splashing onto mine.

Eventually, my parents will go where I went and all I can do is stand on the other shore and remember them for remembering is also love and love is what remains when all else is gone. Each day we live, we shower this love with our tears and this causes green things to grow and life springs ever eternal, even when it doesn't, it still is there, forever, for beyond the Gates of Death, there is no Time.

I have touched souls as they pass by, going there. It is like touching a rainbow, shimmering light as delicate as the Evening Star of Venus or the wash of light from the Milky Way in summer. So behold, this, and remember, it all comes together again, eventually, for all of us. We can't tell how or why, it just is, this stream of light, this effervesant river of love, always, in eternal embrace, the greatest force of all in the universe.

Peace to everyone.

Thank you.

Detriot's Bishop Announces He Was Molested By Priest Many Years Ago

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Now a Bishop (!) says he was molested by a priest many years ago and he asks for Michigan to have no time limit on sexual abuse investigations. Meanwhile, the Ratzi Pope acts as if he is running a joy house. Dressing flashy and egging people on, exactly as I expected of him. Sex is a mysterious force, isn't it?

Fromt the Washington Post:
Breaking ranks with his peers, a Roman Catholic bishop called yesterday for state legislatures to temporarily remove the time limits that have prevented many victims of sex abuse from suing the church.

In making that extraordinary appeal, Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit also unburdened himself of a secret. As a teenager 60 years ago, he said, he was "inappropriately touched" by a priest.
This is rather unprecedented. The new Pope persuaded the previous one to not investigate sex abusing priests. More, Ratzi himself, squirreled away top Church sex offenders, often taking them out of the countries where they abused people and hiding them in the Vatican where they all are on a 24/7 party binge we can't really see, it all being hidden. But the fact is, this Pope, unlike the last one, loves to dress in hot style, lots of red and gold, of course, and he is grinning ear to ear as he pumps his ego up, he is like a one man gay power parade float only like so many sex fiends, he attacks gays who want civil rights and he attacks gays who want to dress in silk, lace, fancy embroideries like him, he attacks gays who want to live with their own loves even as he, himself, lives in a giant palace filled to the gills with only men, seriously, the contridictions of the Catholic Church are on full display just as the same thing is running amok in the American born again scene!

Every day in America, we have news stories of insane right wing religious nuts doing the nuttiest sexual escapades. At Atrios, he and his many readers have started a whole line of blog postings called "Bobo's World" to detail this stuff because the New York Times has this clown called Mr. Brooks who wrote a book about "Bohemians in the Garden of Eden" and we mock him for his superficial take on the maloderous mangled mess of the average right wing sex-suppression psychopaths.

Dr. Freud was part of a whole movement of intellects in Europe who tried to riddle out the mysteries of religion and sex and the human psyche back at the turn of the century as the Romantic Movement reached its greatest heights. Artists and musicians and writers churned up a lot of material and then the anthropologists, exploring the "primitive" tribes the European imperialist conquests encountered, all this allowed philosophers to openly discuss sex and religion.

More, archeologists and the discovery of all the Ice Age cave art opened yet more doors onto the darker, most tangled parts of the human mind and how it has created religion to deal with several important terrors of all humans: birth, death and the cosmos.

Unlike most animals, we have large enough brains that have a vast sector of hidden thought processes, that we can spend an awful lot of time wondering about life and death and imagining our own death all too vividly. Once we reached the top of the predator food chain, we won the luxury of deep sleep with vivid dreams since we fear little interference while knocked out.

The Gods we fear were unleashed in these dreams and unlike dogs or cats, our fellow friend-predators, who also dream, our dreams are much more complex due to the acquisition of language.

My most important dreams have been about the intersection of language and image.

The need to understand our rampant sexual urges has occupied our minds for eons. This is because it is fun thinking about sex and everyone wants to think about it but if we think about it too much and do it too much, we fall into ruin since it causes a cascade of social problems such as hunting, defending territory, controlling pregnancy frequency, building things, chipping rocks to make tools, making pottery, etc.

So the human mind, ever creative, took the sexual urge and redirected it into these desirable but non-reproductive activities. Singing special songs while chipping spear points, telling stories about other beings who happen to have sex, too, was a happy diversion because one could tend the fire or make pottery or hunt for fruits while being entertained without doing the act itself.

This displacement of the rampant sexual urges caused by human females no longer having a "heat" period like say, deer or horses, made social life in a tribe easier. A female could do various tasks during the day without being jumped. The taboos and restrictions were found to make sex much more interesting since the human mind could secretly plot how and when and where to do it and the intensification of sexual pleasure the thoughts gave was noticed probably way back by the earliest stone age peoples.

All this has gone through so much mediation and layering as each generation adds or subtracts elements in order to give life more pleasure or meaning or as various cultures struggle to deal with the manifest contridictions of sexual gratification problems, the whole dark mess has become both more obvious and more obscure, namely, we know now a great deal about the sexual roots of our pesky brains but we cannot accecpt the end results: namely, the more we control or express our sexual natures, the more it becomes a monster that eats us up!

In other words, repressive people and overly sexualized people are very destructive, very unhappy unless they are abusing other humans, and utterly unsatiable.

This is why the nobelest of arts and crafts tap into sexual energy but don't allow it to run the show, namely, the more oblique an creator is, the more the results resonate in other, non-sexual ways that open the mind to more than just eat/sex/sleep animal nature.

The Christian religion is amusing to me because they took the much more honest and severe more stone-age Jewish-tribalism and turned it into a rarified mishmash of all the Mediterranean religions plus whatever else it encountered in the forests of barbarian Europe and made it "holy". So the God Zu of ancient Ur in Mesopotamia, who had to be in horse form to have sex with other proto-goddesses, mutated into Zeus and extended the ability to morph into changing into swans and bulls as well as horses, even a shower of golden sperm, this was altered into the non-sexual Jewish Yahweh turning into Zu and using the other aspect of the Flying Horse, namely, the bird, to impregnate a human female.

This bizarre oddity was extended by having the bird not have sex but merging with the human. Except it didn't, it sort of hyper-merged and then flew off. Explaining all this has created many rifts in the early Church which were resolved by brute force, the Emperor decideding in Nicea that there were three entities, they were all the same but different, the Father, the Son and the Holy Zu, the Flying God of Ur Ghost. This troublesome trio still cause theological problems which will, according to the True Believers, will be resolved with the Apocalypse. Whoopee.

Talk about sexual needs out of control! For you see, displacing sex is dangerous because it is closely allied to all those other dark urges in our brains, the urge to kill and eat everything one meets, the desire to stomp around the planet like a T-rex, bellowing and ripping things up, as usual, death/sex/food are the highest and nastiest, the nobelest and most hideous parts of our brains, our psyches, ourselves.

And coping with this will always be difficult. Meanwhile, the real question is, why are people who can't control any of their psychic dark selves running around telling me how to live my own life? Seriously, this is a huge difficulty and annoyance. I have to spend a lot of time dealing with them. And they tick me off for now they want to control my sex life in very intimate ways like taking away my control over my uterus and when I have children.

Zu, where are you? Throw a few thunderbolts. But not at me, thank you.

Boston University Professor Claims Jesus Did Pot

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Professor Bennett suggests that Jesus used pot. We still don't know how he managed to make fine chablis wine on command, I hope they figure that out. I have a deep water well and it is too cold to grow grapes here.

From the Guardian:
Jesus as almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.

The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.
Like, keep on trucking, JC! Dude!

Long hair? Check.

Strange eyes with big, big pupils. Check.

Flowing robes. Check.

Hung out at local bars and saloons with gang members. Check.

Liked wine so much he made it out of water magically. Way to go, check.

Harrassed by da man and executed by fascist pigs. Super check.

Still kept on trucking, will return later after he is done hanging out in Heaven, playing a harp and zoning out. Check.

Yes, this sounds pretty rad. Jesus is definitely a counter-culture, wild eyed hater of the rich, demanding everyone join communes and share with each other, whoo hoo. He sounds awfully familiar, like some of my boyfriends. Of course, he was supposed to not be interested in grrrrlz but then, the gay rights movement came out of the whole hippie-pot scene, didn't it, eh?

WWJD? Roll a joint, man. Take a toke and don't bogart that joint, my friend. Sigh.

Wow. Psychadelic city.

Happy Hannuka and Remembering the Quarter Million Dead This Anniversary

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

This week, the Hannuka candles are lit in many homes including that of my own family. And this is the anniversary of the Boxing Day Quake. A quarter million people were swept away suddenly. Today, we pray for them and for all those people who have died this year, there are so many, so very many, let us remember them if only for a little bit. The Gates of Death will be all our destination, too, eventually.

From the BBC:
"I think you need to come back," Swedish survivor Pigge Werkelin, who lost his two young sons and his wife in the disaster, told Reuters news agency.

"You need to go to the beach, you have to see children on the beach, you have to see everything... I must do it and then afterward I can put it behind me."
The pain of loss is on many levels. Such as this person, when you lose the one you choose to love, it causes a hole in the heart which remains there no matter how hidden. I know, my grandfather's first love, she died before they could consumate the marriage. He married my grandmother and never talked about the previous love until his last days when Elizabeth was much on his mind. He thought I was her, often times, and talked to me as if nothing had ever happened.

The loss of children is a whole different dimension. There is considerable rage attached to losing one's child. I can only imagine what it feels like, I have children. When my son was born, I nearly died. What did I say to the doctors? "Don't let anything happen to my baby, don't worry about me."

Parents throw themselves into incredible danger to save their children. This fall, when our area was hit by sudden floods, two children were swept away by the raging waters and the stepfather threw himself in to save them and they all drowned.

This is love on a heroic scale. And everyone is a hero, whether we care for a loved elderly person or a child, the patient work or the sudden rush to danger, this need to save the ones we love, nay, the desire to save even total strangers, this is what makes humanity worth loving and is why we must ask all our gods of whoever they think they are, to show us some mercy.

And for us to love the mother of all mothers, the number one in our extended family: Mother Earth. For She is of uttermost importance. If we take care of Her and show Her respect and love, She will try Her best to be gentle with us, in return.

Apocalyptic Right Wing Nuts Take Over Airforce Academy

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

People planning for creating Armaggeddon have built mega-churches all around the Airforce Academy because subverting American youth into cogs in the Apocalypse machinery is how they plan the implimentation of The End of Time. You see, the AF is who controls many of those wonderful nuclear missiles! It is vital that we not let insane religious nuts access to launching nuclear war.

From Online Journal:
Four Air Force officers -- all graduates of the Air Force Academy's class of 2004 -- have recently joined a lawsuit that accuses leaders at the academy of overtly pressuring cadets to undertake evangelical religious instruction. The original lawsuit was filed in October by Mikey Weinstein, a former Air Force officer and graduate of the academy, whose son experienced religious discrimination while attending the school.
A number of news outlets have covered this story but few go as far as this fine article by
Devlin Buckley.
In addition to being headquarters for Air Force Space Command, Northern Command, NORAD, numerous Air Force bases, and the Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs is also home to the nation's largest, most influential and politically active evangelical organizations: James Dobson's Focus on the Family, which is so large that it maintains its own zip code, claims more than 200 million followers worldwide, and is located directly across the highway from the academy.
And more than his organization, every lunatic End of Times organization has parked a van next to the AF academy! Few people connect all the dots, of course, I must be one of the few. One fact one must remember is that on 9/11, Bush threw all the reporters off the plane and secretly, yes, SECRETLY flew to Offutt Airforce Base where I am assuming (correctly) that he talked about the Apocalypse and how they all were going to be in the front rows of it all and how they would all be Jesus' death rays, raining death on one third of humanity, Hallelujia!A professional team providing worldwide reconnaissance, real-time intelligence, command and control, information warfare and combat support to national leadership and warfighting commanders.Here is their mission:
A professional team providing worldwide reconnaissance, real-time intelligence, command and control, information warfare and combat support to national leadership and warfighting commanders.
Note what a superb job they did on 9/11---Not! Over and over one has to ask this very important question: why did all the officers, all of the Airforce officers trained in Colorado, sit on their asses on 9/11? They sat there, slack-jawed as not one but four civilian airliners were hijacked and not one but three reached their targets, one being the Pentagon, and did this over a long time period, leisurely, taking their sweet time, flying way out of the way, flying at subsonic speeds past many of the biggest Airforce bases on the East Coast and note one plane intercepted them, trailed after them, did virtually anything.

It was either the world's biggest case of rank incompetence as has characterized the entire Bush maladministration or it was deliberate and I fall in the "deliberate" camp very strongly at this point. The sad fact is, we can't trust our own Airforce anymore because they no longer exist to protect America, they exist to cause World War Three. The harrassment of Jewish on other religionists at the academy is important because they need 100% co-conspiritors who will trigger the Apocalypse on command. Right now, there are enough non-Apocalypticans in the system to raise the alarm or leak the conspiritor's plans to the public.

Bush is the leader in this conspiracy. Like Hitler before him, his family's good friend, Bush wants to take the entire planet down with him if he is going to go up in flames. This is typical of megamaniacs. Just like a drunken sot, after bankrupting the family, up to his ears in saloon bar tabs and gambling debts, strangles the children in their beds, kills the wife and then goes out and has a shoot-out with the police. Some go further like Jim Jones who famously ordered all his followers to drink purple Kool Aid.
During the late 1970's, Jones had been abusing prescription drugs and appears to have become increasingly paranoid. Rumors of human rights abuses circulated. As in most high-intensity religious groups, there was a considerable flow of people joining and leaving the group.
Bush is showing signs of someone either taking drugs again or drinking heavily again or both. He is certainly paranoid. He talks bizarrely, walks erratically, falls at odd times when there is nothing really tripping him up, careens about crashing into things, his behavior is enough to trigger an impeachment for incapacity to run the nation.

But this won't happen unless Americans wake up in alarm and the problem here is the 33% of America that wants Jesus to rain death from on high, for the heavens to open up and disgorge nuclear missiles on all those blue voting cities. The critical divide here is stark: much of the population centers, all ground zeros for the Apocalypse's nuclear missiles, voted against the born again Christians and their leaders! Listen carefully to the idle chat in the red rural areas. "Maybe we should nuke LA and kill all those kooks!"

As we note here, this crazy 33% has turned Christmas into a nightmare whit their incessant whining about lack of Jesus (he hated hypocrites above all people) and thier boycotts of businesses and strong armed attacks on businesses who tried to appeal to any and all minorities or women's groups. They have supported illegal and unconstitutional actions of their paranoid, insane leader and his gang of co-conspiritors. They reall do believe that Jesus is going to murder masses of humans so they can "inherit the earth" and consume all that lovely oil, toodling around Kansas in their Humvees, laughing diabolically.

In other words, they will become the devils they claim they will defeat.

From the People's Daily:
The cabinet and the Security Council of Japan approved Saturday a budget in fiscal 2006 to proceed with joint development of a next-generation missile interceptor with the United States.

"With the results of Japan-U.S. research so far and given the current international circumstances, it is appropriate to efficiently push forward to joint development in order to secure the capability to deal with the threat of ballistic missiles," Chief Cabinet Secretary Shinzo Abe said in a statement.

For the joint development of the upgraded version of the Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) with the United States, the cabinet approved Saturday 3 billion yen (about 25.54 million U.S. dollars) as development costs in fiscal 2006 and 700 million yen (about 5. 96 million dollars) for remaining work of joint research.

The move to develop the advanced SM-3 missile interceptor is politically sensitive , considering Japan's pacifist constitution and strict arms exports controls.

Abe stressed that Japan needs to be able to defend itself against ballistic missiles and that arms exports to the United States related to the joint missile defense project are exempt from Japan's weapons export ban, under the condition that they are strictly managed.
Anyone remember World War II? Remember how the Japanese fought to the very last man on each tiny island? How the civilians on Okinawa were ordered to jump to their deaths rather than surrender? How America decided to commit a war crime and nuke, without warning, two civilian populations in Japan in order to scare the Emperor into finally surrendering? And the crazy Emperor who was raised to believe he was a god, finally ran behind the backs of the military men surrounding him and surrendered suddenly when they were preparing to fight literally to the death?

Gads. Let's give that culture a bunch of nuclear missiles!

This is why we should all be alarmed about what is happening to the Airforce Academy. We could end up as Imperial Japan. Already, we are hyper-hostile and vicious. We try to clothe our crimes in Iraq in the garb of freedom and liberty but this is collapsing even as I type, the civil war there is now roiling in ernest and our military leaders are, like in Imperal Japan, lying to us, they claim they are pulling out troops while they aren't because it is deteriorating there fast.

And yet more WWIII news here: From RIAN, Russia:
The launch has been conducted successfully," Sergei Ivanov said in a report to the Russian President. "The separation of all stages, combat and simulation blocks occurred according to pre-set parameters."

It was earlier reported that the missile was launched Wednesday from the submerged Dmitry Donskoy, a Typhoon-class ballistic missile submarine, and successfully hit its dummy target at the Kura test site on the Kamchatka Peninsula.

"What is important is that the submarine was moving [underwater], it was not stationary," the minister said.
Um, the anti-missiles in Japan can't stop this! The waters around Japan are teeming with subs from China, Russia and the USA. Not to mention North Korea. If many if not all of them have nuclear warheads, this is a great place to launch WWIII. Of course, Iran/Iraq will have subs and nukes too, eventually. Thanks to the stupid war we brought to Iraq, Iran will become the world's biggest oil exporter.

From Al Jazeera:
Sheikh Ahmad Fahad Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, the president of Opec, said at a press conference on Sunday that Russia was the world's second-leading oil exporter behind Saudi Arabia and a critical force in ensuring oil market stability.
OPEC never stabilized prices. But they are a great place for people to make deals of various sorts. The Saudi attempt at curtailing Saddam's power has backfired badly and now they have, on their east and north flanks, angry Shi'ites who have a nasty chip on the shoulder and who openly proclaim the Saudi royals are not taking care of the spiritual side of Mecca and they should run Mecca.

And then there is bin Laden. The man who looks like Jesus. The man who is the mirror image of Jesus and who talks like and acts like Death Ray Jesus, wielder of the Apocalypic Lightning Bolts. The remarkable similarity of him to the born again right wing Republican's idea of what Jesus is all about is amazing. It is exactly as the Bible foretold: the "Christians" would follow the Evil Jesus and worship him.

For these so-called "Christians" are in cahoots with bin Laden. This is why they didn't fight back when he supposedly attacked us on 9/11, this is why all our security forces set up to track terrorists allowed them to openly function before 9/11, this is the only explanation for why, when we supposedly had bin Laden cornered the following December, we suspended fighting and allowed him to "escape". This is why he openly called for Bush to be reinstalled as "President" and why barely a soul working for Bush mentions his name and of course the anthrax killer who is obviously very close to Bush and the born again conspiritors who are planning the Apocalypse....Note how little they talk about HIM and how feeble the hunt for this serial killer goes!

Happy New Year, everyone. Impeach Bush, put them all in jail.
