The Truth About Jesse

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 26, 2006

Jesse Jackson isn’t letting anything like a secret out-of-wedlock daughter and growing questions about his personal and organization funding get him down.

On the contrary: He’s pressing forward with his Wall Street Project, in which some of America’s largest corporations have donated millions to his network of charities and organizations.

Ostensibly, Jackson’s projects are designed to increase minority participation on Wall Street. But many corporations have learned that a hefty donation to Jackson’s causes is simply the best way to change the reverend’s political course and bring him around to their side.

And the best way to ensure Jackson’s support is to make sure that his family and close friends get a large slice of the pie. No wonder Jackson’s most recent book is entitled, “It’s About the Money: How to Build Wealth, Get Access to Capital and Achieve Your Financial Dreams.”

IT all began in the early ’80s, when Jackson’s demands moved Coca-Cola to award more distributorships to minorities. Among those who got the lucrative contracts: Jackson’s half-brother, Noah Robinson (now serving a life prison sentence for hiring gang members to kill three business associates).

In 1996, Jackson successfully pressured Texaco to pony up hundreds of millions to settle a discrimination lawsuit – even though no racial discrimination was ever proven. (A “smoking-gun” tape of company execs was later determined to contain no racial slurs.)

But Jackson had learned that companies will pay up in order to avoid bad publicity and accusations of racism – even if totally unfounded. So in 1997 he formed the Wall Street Project – which now rakes in some $10 million a year.

And as investigations by The Post, the Chicago Sun-Times and the Los Angeles Times demonstrate, Jackson’s support was easily bought. Indeed, noted the L.A. Times, “Corporations have paid handsomely to get Jackson off their backs.”

Jesse Jackson is only in it for the money. He cares only about furthering his own political agenda. He uses thug tactics to bully corporations in to giving him millions of dollars a year.

Jesse Jackson will push his nose in to any situation or any ones business in order to receive more money. He sounds and acts more like racketeering mob boss instead of some one trying to help his race. Jesse Jackson gives blacks a bad name. What they need to do is do a investigation in to every aspect of his political and business life.

Mass. gov.-elect says no to trooper pact

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 25, 2006

BOSTON – Gov.-elect Deval Patrick said Thursday he will rescind a new agreement between the state and federal authorities that allows State
Police troopers to arrest illegal immigrants.

The incoming governor said he believes the troopers have enough to do already without having to also enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

“If I have that power, I’m going to rescind that agreement,” Patrick, a Democrat, told reporters. “I do believe I have that power.”

 

It is Politicians like Gov.-elect Deval Patrick that supports the downfall of America and the selling out of America to the highest bidder. Traitors like Gov.-elect Deval Patrick and Bush should not remain in office. America needs leaders that put America and Americans first above all else.

AIM Report: U.S. Borders: Going-Going-Gone! – December B

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 25, 2006

Readers of the AIM Report are accustomed to learning of huge distortions or omissions by the media. This time, the under-reported story deals with the possible end of America, as we know it.

Major players are secretive and are trying to keep the media out of the loop. But that does not let the mainstream media off the hook. There is enough stonewalling, secrecy and there are plenty of telltale signs, so that any assignment editor whose curiosity is not aroused is probably in the wrong business.

But in terms of the national media, only Lou Dobbs of CNN has blown the whistle on a scheme whereby a North American “Security and Prosperity Partnership,” being implemented by the Department of Commerce, could pave the way for a transnational entity called the North American Union.

The implications of this scheme are staggering. Some experts say that up to a million people in Texas stand to lose their homes and 584,000 acres of rich farm and ranchland are to be destroyed, all for a privately funded highway. Of course, this is not the first time property-owners did battle with highway builders. That in itself is getting lots of media attention, but almost entirely in the regional/local media. At first glance, one might say this is a local story, so why should it go national?

But suppose you were told that this “highway” (to be built largely by foreign investors) could serve as the starting point for a much larger plan whose end result would be to erase the borders (figuratively if not literally) between the United States, Mexico, and Canada? Wouldn’t you be curious, no matter where you live? The national media isn’t interested.

The Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) is its official name. Critics call it the NAFTA Highway. The publicized TTC is being treated as a regional
story because of the disruption to Texas farmers and other property owners.

The TTC is no ordinary highway. The toll road would be four football fields wide. It includes separate lanes (up to six for automobiles, four for large trucks), plus tracks for freight trains, separate tracks for high-speed and commuter rail, also space for oil and gas pipelines, electricity wires, and broadband transmission cables.

The Associated Press (AP) has carried regional stories focused on the Texas politics of the TTC highway—the anger of the farmers and other property owners likely to get their Kelo notices soon now that the election is over. Kelo is the U.S. Supreme Court decision that said it was okay for government to take your home away from you if some big corporate hotel chain, strip mall contractor, or—in this case—foreign investor wants to build on your land and create a fatter tax base than what the government can get from ordinary home-owners.

But Freedom of Information (FOIA) e-mails suggest the TTC is but one part of the drive for a North American Union—not unlike the European Union. The vehicle for that is the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), housed in the Department of Commerce in Washington.

The Council on Foreign Relations constantly promotes the SPP and supported the conference that created it. That trilateral meeting in Waco, Texas in March of 2005 ended in a handshake between President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin.

A press release was all that was issued. Any formal treaty would have required ratification by the United States Senate. None was written and submitted to the Senate.

Hidden Agenda

The SPP is very secretive about the 20 “working groups” it has spawned where bureaucrats from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are rewriting proposals for our laws, regulations and trade agreements whose ultimate effect would be to create a North American Union.

The United States of America, as we know it, will soon no longer exist. Politicians are hard at work selling out Americans. Bush and Politicians are creating deals to turn America in to a dictatorship where American Freedoms WILL be striped away. No more freedom of speech. No more freedom of self expression. NO MORE FREEDOMS.

Jimmy Carter Fires Back at Longtime Aide Over Book

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 18, 2006

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter faced new criticism Friday over his controversial book on Palestinian lands when a former Middle East diplomat accused him of improperly publishing maps that did not belong to him.

The new charge came as Carter attempted to counter charges from a former top aide that the book manipulates facts to distort history.

Ambassador Dennis Ross, a former Mideast envoy and FOX News foreign affairs analyst, claims maps commissioned and published by him were improperly republished in Carter’s book.

“I think there should be a correction and an attribution,” Ross said. “These were maps that never existed, I created them.”

Fox News along with CNN should not be pointing the finger at any one. I guess it is ok if they show Top Secret maps along with troop movements. Israel will not stop until they control as much land as they can get their greedy little hands on. Israel is the true terrorist state. Israel has the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.

Bush ready to send more troops to Iraq

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 18, 2006

President George W Bush is poised to increase troop numbers in Iraq as part of a dramatic new strategy designed to regain control of Baghdad and suffocate the Sunni insurgency.

Sending more soldiers and marines to Iraq would infuriate Democrats and be a slap in the face to James Baker, the former US secretary of state who co-authored the independent Iraq Study Group report, which recommended a draw down of all combat forces by early 2008.

But an advisor involved in White House discussions said of Mr Bush: “This is the direction he’s moving in. He understands we have to win and to do that requires more troops.”

Mr Bush is debating with his aides and outside advisors how many extra troops there should be and for what period. His options range from a temporary “surge” of 20,000 troops to a “big push” involving more than 50,000.

A version of the “big push” plan – also known as the “double-down gamble” option – is supported by Senator John McCain, who is fast
becoming the Republican establishment’s choice for the 2008 presidential nomination.

 

You will never see Bush send his own kids to Iraq. It is to easier to command from a distance than it is to command at the front.

Pentagon eyes $468.9 bln budget for fiscal 2008

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 18, 2006

“They would like the administration to ask for most of the funding up front,” he said.

Kosiak also rejected England’s statement in the memo that the 2008 increase “reverses a trend of declining real growth”, calling England’s
description “flat-out wrong”.

“There has been a upward trend in real terms, above the rate of inflation,” he said, citing a 23 percent real increase, above inflation, in the Pentagon’s budget from 2000 to 2007.

Loren Thompson of the Virginia-based Lexington Institute, said England’s letter revealed the Pentagon’s growing concern about being able to modernize its forces and fund new weapons programs while paying escalating war bills.

“This has real significance for the Pentagon in terms of being able to fund other items besides the war,” he said.

The Pentagon is likely to ask for an additional $100 billion to fund the Iraq and Afghanistan wars early next year.

The Pentagon’s 2008 overall budget request of $468.9 for fiscal 2008 is 6.3 percent higher than its fiscal 2007 budget request of $441.2 billion.

Just think about over the years and how much tax payer money has gone in to politicians’ pockets and not to where it is supposed to go. Just think about who profits from Bush’s war. Just think about the lives lost to a war that another country told America to start.

Americans just need to start thinking for them selves and seek answers. Do not rely on blind faith. Do not rely on the fact that what the government says is not always correct.

Only 9% of Americans Foresee Iraq Victory

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 18, 2006

– Few adults in the United States are confident in a positive resolution for the coalition effort, according to a poll by Ipsos-Public Affairs released by the Associated Press. 87 per cent of respondents expect some kind of compromise settlement, while only nine per cent foresee a clear-cut victory.

The coalition effort against Saddam Hussein’s regime was launched in March 2003. At least 2,937 American soldiers have died during the military operation, and more than 22,200 troops have been wounded in action.

In December 2005, Iraqi voters renewed their National Assembly. In May, Shiite United Iraqi Alliance member Nouri al-Maliki officially took over as prime minister.

On Dec. 6, the Iraq Study Group—a bipartisan panel of experts—presented its findings on how to deal with the situation in Iraq. The ten members called for a quicker process to train Iraqi forces, engaging with Iran and Syria in a dialogue aimed at stabilizing Iraq, and pulling back U.S. combat troops by early 2008. 60 per cent of respondents would favour withdrawing all troops in the middle of 2007, and 71 per cent prefer a full pull back in 2008.

On Dec. 13, U.S. president George W. Bush discussed the situation in Iraq, saying, “One thing people got to understand is we’ll be headed toward achieving our objectives. And I repeat, if we lose our nerve, if we’re not steadfast in our determination to help the Iraqi government succeed, we will be handing Iraq over to an enemy that would do us harm, the consequences of which—of leaving Iraq before the job is done, for example, would be grave for the American citizens.”

It does not matter what America thinks, because the president has not and will never listen to what Americans want. Bush only answers to the rich and powerful. Bush is way more deadlier than any terrorist.
