2004 Election Year
"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."
GOV. GEORGE W. BUSH (R-TX), PRESIDENT-ELECT
Which of the Order of Skull and Bones will you vote for in the next election ?
President George Bush gives the classic "Satanic Salute" the Horned Hand.
Presidential candidate John Kerry gives the classic Communist,
clenched fist salute.
President George Bush
George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, was the Managing Director of the investment bank Brown Brothers, Harriman from the 1920s through the 1940s. It was Brown Brothers, in conjunction with Averell Harriman, the Rockefeller family, Standard Oil, the DuPonts, the Morgans and the Fords who served as the principal funding arm in helping to finance Adolph Hitler's rise to power starting in 1923. This included direct funding for the SS and SA channeled through a variety of German firms. Prescott Bush, through associations with the Hamburg-Amerika Steamship line, Nazi banker Fritz Thyssen (pronounced Tee-sen), Standard Oil of Germany, The German Steel Trust (founded by Dillon Read founder, Clarence Dillon), and I.G. Farben, used the Union Bank Corporation to funnel vast quantities of money to the Nazis and to manage their American interests. The profits from those investments came back to Bush allies on Wall Street. Thyssen is universally regarded as having been Hitler's private banker and ultimate owner of the Union Bank Corporation.
Early support for Hitler came from Prescott Bush through the Hamburg-Amerika Steamship line -- also funded by Brown Bothers -- that funneled large sums of money and weapons to Hitler's storm troopers in the 1920s.
According to Tarpley and Chaitkin, "In May 1933, just after the Hitler regime was consolidated, an agreement was reached in Berlin for the coordination of all Nazi commerce with the U.S.A. The Harriman International Company... was to head a syndicate of 150 firms and individuals, to conduct all exports from Hitler Germany to the United States."
Furthermore, a 1942 U.S. government investigative report that surfaced during 1945 Senate hearings found that the Union Bank, with Prescott Bush on the board, was an "interlocking concern" with the German Steel Trust that had produced:
- 50.8% of Nazi Germany's pig iron
- 41.4% of Nazi Germany's universal plate
- 36% of Nazi Germany's heavy plate
- 38.5% of Nazi Germany's galvanized sheet
- 45.5% of Nazi Germany's pipes and tubes
- 22.1% of Nazi Germany's wire
- 35% of Nazi Germany's explosives
The business relationships established by Bush in 1923 continued even after the war started until they became so offensive and overt as to warrant seizure by the U.S. government under the Trading with the Enemy Act in 1942.
In 1942, "Under the Trading with the Enemy Act, the government took over Union Banking Corporation, in which Bush was a director. The U.S. Alien Property Custodian seized Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares...
"... all of which shares are held for the benefit of... members of the Thyssen family, [and] is property of nationals... of a designated enemy country."
"On October 28, the government issued orders seizing two Nazi front organizations run by the Bush-Harriman bank: the Holland-American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation."
"Nazi interests in the Silesian-American Corporation, long managed by Prescott Bush and his father in law George Herbert Walker, were seized under the Trading with the Enemy Act on Nov. 17, 1942..." These seizures of Bush businesses were reported in a number of American papers including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
Prescott Bush went on to become an influential Republican Senator from Connecticut who went on to be a regular golfing partner of President Dwight Eisenhower. His attorneys were the lawyers John Foster and Allen Dulles, the later became the CIA Director under Eisenhower.
After becoming President in January 1989, Prescott Bush's son, George Herbert Walker Bush - father of our current President - authorized a series of programs that not only armed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein but also provided him with technology that assisted in his development of chemical weapons like Sarin gas, and biological weapons, which he still possesses. Apologists for Bush (the elder) say that, after the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s left the region unstable, he was just trying to establish a new balance of power. Not so. Bush directives and policies, including relationships with the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), and the Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) were directly and deliberately responsible for creating the army the U.S. fought in 1991.
A story by Russ W. Baker, in the March/April issue the Colombia Journalism Review (CJR), provided the most compelling overview of Iraqgate that I have seen.
"ABC News Nightline opened last June 9 with words to make the heart stop ÔIt is becoming increasingly clear,' said a grave Ted Koppel, Ôthat George Bush, operating largely behind the scenes throughout the 1980s, initiated and supported much of the financing, intelligence, and military help that built Saddam's Iraq into the aggressive power that the United States ultimately had to destroy...
"Why, then, have some of our top papers provided so little coverage?" Baker poignantly asks.
" The result: readers who neither grasp nor care about the facts behind facile imagery like The Butcher of Baghdad and Operation Desert Storm. In particular, readers who do not follow the story of the Banca Nazionale del Lavoro, which apparently served as a paymaster for Saddam's arms buildup, and thus became a player in the largest bank-fraud case in U.S. history.
"Complex, challenging, mind-boggling stories (from Iran-Contra to the S&L crisis to BCCI) increasingly define our times: yet we don't appear to be getting any better at telling them...
"Much of what Saddam received from the West was not arms per se, but so-called dual-use technology -- ultra sophisticated computers, armored ambulances, helicopters, chemicals, and the like, with potential civilian uses as well as military applications. We've learned that a vast network of companies, based in the U.S. and abroad, eagerly fed the Iraqi war machine right up until August 1990, when Saddam invaded Kuwait.
"And we've learned that the obscure Atlanta Branch of Italy's largest bank, Banca Nazionale del Lavoro, relying partly on U.S. taxpayer-guaranteed loans, funneled $5 billion to Iraq from 1985 to 1989. Some government-backed loans were supposed to be for agricultural purposes, but were used to facilitate the purchase of stronger stuff than wheat. Federal Reserve and Agriculture department memos warned of suspected abuses by Iraq, which apparently took advantage of the loans to free up funds for munitions. U.S. taxpayers have been left holding the bag for what looks like $2 billion in defaulted loans to Iraq.
"... In fact, we now know that in February 1990, then Attorney General Dick Thornburgh [appointed by George H.W. Bush] blocked U.S. investigators from traveling to Rome and Istanbul to pursue the case...
"... As New York Times columnist William Safire argued last December 7, ÔIraqgate is uniquely horrendous: a scandal about the Systematic abuse of power by misguided leaders of three democratic nations [The U.S., Britain, and Italy] to secretly finance the arms buildup of a dictator."
While Democrat Henry Gonzales, Chairman of the House Banking Committee during the period, stood as the lone voice from the wilderness in raising alarms about Bush's obvious corruption, the rest of the Congress sheepishly ignored all the signs demanding immediate action. Gonzales' voice reportedly fell silent after his empty car was machine-gunned in a Washington suburb in what passed for a drive-by shooting.
The CJR continues: "Meanwhile, The Village Voice published a major investigation by free-lancer Murray Waas in its December 18, 1990 issue... "That American troops could be killed or maimed because of a covert decision to arm Iraq,' Waas wrote, "is the most serious consequence of a U.S. foreign policy formulated and executed in secret, without the advice and consent of the American public..."
The L.A. Times, on Feb 23, 1992, dug deep enough to find secret National Security Decision Directives by the Bush Administration in 1989 ordering closer ties with Baghdad and paving the way for $1 billion in new aid. The Times' series, co-authored with Waas, emphasized that, "buried deep in a 1991 Washington Press piece - that Secretary of State James Baker, after meeting with Iraqi foreign minister Tariq Aziz in October 1989, intervened personally to support U.S. government loans guarantees to Iraq."
Baker's CJR report also noted, "On October 3, the [Wall Street] Journal reported [BNL official Christopher] Drogoul's assertion that the director general of Iraq's Ministry of Industry and Military Production had told him, ÔWe are all in this together. The intelligence service of the U.S. government works very closely with the intelligence service of the Iraqi government.' Three weeks later, the Journal reported that [Henry] Gonzales Ôproduced a phone-book-sized packet of documents' showing the involvement of U.S. exporting firms... The documents mentioned one... which designed parts for Iraq's howitzers and was financed through BNL..."
In the wake of highly suspicious anthrax outbreaks in Florida, just miles from where several of the WTC suicides pilots trained, we add one final note. In his 1998 book "Bringing the War Home" author William Thomas writes, " Under that same [weapons transfer] program, 19 containers of Anthrax bacteria were supplied to Iraq in 1988 by the American Type Culture Collection company, located near Fort Detrick, MD, the site of the US Army's high security germ warfare labs."
The Carlyle Group, the Bushes and bin Laden
The warnings about the Carlyle Group, the nation's 11th largest defense contractor, and the Bushes came long before the World Trade Center attacks. The Carlyle Group is a closely held corporation, exempt, for that reason, from reporting its affairs to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Little is known of what it actually does except that it buys and sells defense contractors. As of October 4, 2001, it has removed its corporate web site from the World Wide Web making further investigation through that channel impossible. Its Directors include Frank Carlucci, former Reagan Secretary of Defense; James Baker, former Bush Secretary of State; and Richard Darman, a former White House aide to Ronald Reagan and Republican Party operative.
On March 3, 2001, just weeks after George W Bush's inauguration, the conservative Washington lobbying group Judicial Watch issued a press release. It said:
"(Washington, D.C.) Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that investigates and prosecutes government abuse and corruption, called on former President George Herbert Walker Bush to resign immediately from the Carlyle Group, a private investment firm, while his son President George W. Bush is in office. Today's New York Times reported that the elder Bush is an "ambassador" for the $12 billion private investment firm and last year traveled to the Middle East on its behalf. The former president also helped the firm in South Korea.
"The New York Times reported that as compensation, the elder Bush is allowed to buy a stake in the Carlyle Group's investments, which include ownership in at least 164 companies throughout the world (thereby by giving the current president an indirect benefit). James Baker, the former Secretary of State who served as President George W. Bush's point man in Florida's election dispute, is a partner in the firm. The firm also gave George W. Bush help in the early 1990's when it placed him on one of its subsidiary's board of directors.
"This is simply inappropriate. Former President Bush should immediately resign from the Carlyle Group because it is an obvious conflict of interest. Any foreign government or foreign investor trying to curry favor with the current Bush Administration is sure to throw business to the Carlyle Group. And with the former President Bush promoting the firm's investments abroad, foreign nationals could understandably confuse the Carlyle Group's interests with the interests of the United States government," stated Larry Klayman, Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel.
"Questions are now bound to be raised if the recent Bush Administration change in policy towards Iraq has the fingerprints of the Carlyle Group, which is trying to gain investments from other Arab countries who [sic] would presumably benefit from the new policy," stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton."
Judicial Watch noted that "even the Clinton Administration called on the Rodham brothers to stop their business dealings in [The former Soviet Republic of] Georgia because those dealings started to destabilize that country."
Since the WTC attacks the Wall Street Journal has reported (Sept. 28, 2001) that, "George H.W. Bush, the father of President Bush, works for the bin Laden family business in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle Group, an international consulting firm." The senior Bush had met with the bin Laden family at least twice in the last three years - 1998 and 2000 -- as a representative of Carlyle, seeking to expand business dealings with one of the wealthiest Saudi families, which some experts argue, has never fully severed its ties with black sheep Osama in spite of current reports in a mainstream press that is afraid of offending the current administration.
The Nation, on March 27, 2000 - in a story co-authored by David Corn and Paul Lashmar - wrote, "In January former President George Bush and former British Prime Minister John Major paid a social call on Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Abdullah..." This story confirms at least one meeting between the elder Bush and Saudi leaders, including the bin Ladens. That the bin Ladens attended this meeting was confirmed in a subsequent September 27, 2001 Wall Street Journal (WSJ) story. The January 2000 meeting with the bin Ladens was also later confirmed by Bush (the elder's) Chief of Staff Jean Becker, only after the WSJ presented her with a thank you note sent by Bush to the bin Ladens after that meeting.
James Baker visited the bin Ladens in 1998 and 1999 with Carlyle CEO Frank Carlucci.
The WSJ story went on to note, "A Carlyle executive said that the bin Laden family committed $2 million through a London investment arm in 1995 in Carlyle Partners II Fund, which raised $1.3 billion overall. The fund has purchased several aerospace companies among 29 deals. So far, the family has received $1.3 million back in completed investments and should ultimately realize a 40% annualized rate of return, the Carlyle executive said.
"But a foreign financier with ties to the bin Laden family says the family's overall investment with Carlyle is considerably larger..."
In other words, Osama bin Laden's attacks on the WTC and Pentagon, with the resulting massive increase in the U.S. defense budget have just made his family a great big pile of money.
More Bush connections appear in relation to the bin Ladens. The WSJ story also notes that, "During the past several years, the [bin Laden] family's close ties to the Saudi royal family prompted executives and staff from closely held New York publisher Forbes, Inc. to make two trips to the family headquarters, according to Forbes Chairman Caspar Weinberger, a former U.S. Secretary of Defense in the Reagan administration. ÔWe would call on them to get their view of the country and what would be of interest to investors.'"
President G.H.W. Bush pardoned Weinberger for his criminal conduct in the Iran-Contra scandal in 1989.
Our current President, George W. Bush has also had -- at minimum -- indirect dealings with Carlyle and the bin Ladens. In 1976 his firm Arbusto Energy was funded with $50,000 from Texas investment banker James R. Bath who was also the U.S. investment counselor for the bin Laden family. In his watershed 1992 book, "The Mafia, The CIA and George Bush," award winning Texas investigative journalist Pete Brewton dug deeply into Bath's background, revealing connections with the CIA and major fraudulent activities connected with the Savings & Loan scandal that took $500 billion out of the pockets of American taxpayers. A long-time friend of George W. Bush, Bath was connected to a number of covert financing operations in the Iran-Contra scandal, which also linked to bin Laden friend Adnan Khashoggi. One of the richest men in the world, Khashoggi was the arms merchant at the center of the whole Iran-Contra scandal. Khashoggi, whose connections to the bin Ladens is more than superficial, got his first business break by acting as middle-man for a large truck purchase by Osama bin Laden's older brother, Salem.
Another key player in the Bush Administration, Deputy Secretary of Defense Richard Armitage, left his post as an Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Reagan Administration after a series of scandals connected to CIA operatives Ed Wilson, Ted Shackley, Richard Secord and Tom Clines placed him at the brink of criminal indictment and jail. Shackley and Secord are veterans of Vietnam operations and have long been linked to opium/heroin smuggling. The Armitage scandals all focused on the illegal provision of weapons and war materiel to potential or actual enemies of the U.S. and to the Contras in Central America.
Armitage, a former Navy SEAL, who reportedly enjoyed combat missions and killing during covert operations in Laos during the Vietnam War, has never been far from the Bush family's side. Throughout his career, both in and out of government, he has been perpetually connected to CIA drug smuggling operations. Secretary of State Colin Powell, in a 1995 Washington Post story, called Armitage, "my white son." In 1990, then President Bush dispatched Armitage to Russia to aid in its "transition" to capitalism. Armitage's Russian work for Bush has been frequently connected to the explosion of drug trafficking under the Russian Mafias, which became virtual rulers of the nation afterwards. In the early 1990s Armitage had extensive involvement in Albania at the same time that the Albanian ally, Kosovo Liberation Army was coming to power and consolidating its grip, according to The Christian Science Monitor, on 70% of the heroin entering western Europe. [See FTW Vol. II, No 2 - April 24, 1999]
Armitage and Carlucci are both Board Members of the influential Washington think tank, the Middle East Policy Council.
The connections continue with Vice President Dick Cheney. Amongst the multitude of oil pipeline construction running through the new war zone is one project - according to a Sept. 19, 2001 Wall Street Journal story - a joint venture in which the bin Laden family joined with the construction firm H.C. Price. A researcher named "Phoenix," writing for the Internet news site Rumor Mills News Agency located at www.rumormillnews.com, reported that Price subsequently changed its name to Bredero Shaw, Inc. and is now owned by a subsidiary of the Halliburton Corporation, Dresser Industries. It was Dresser industries that gave George H.W. Bush his first post war job in 1948. A check of the relevant corporate web sites has confirmed this.
Vice President Dick Cheney, who served as Secretary of Defense during Desert Storm, directing the campaign against Saddam Hussein, was Halliburton's CEO until last year's election.
And, according to a 2000 story from Harper's Magazine, in 1990 our current President, through a position as a corporate director of Caterair, owned by the Carlyle Group - at a time when the bin Laden's were invested in Carlyle - had additional connections to the bin Laden family. In addition, on March 1, 1995, when George W. Bush was Texas governor and a senior Trustee of the university, the University of Texas Endowment voted to place $10 million in investments with the Carlyle Group. As to how much of that money went to the bin Ladens we can only guess. But we do know that there is a long tradition in the Bush family of giving money to those who kill Americans.
Now, as the people of America are beginning to awaken to what is really being unleashed upon them, as a few brave souls are asking who's going to get all the money the Bush Administration is "borrowing" from government coffers and who's going to pay for it - the above history is more than ominous.
Considering that during the 1980s, under the pretext of fighting a Sandinista regime in Nicaragua that never once launched an attack on the U.S., these same people oversaw an explosion in U.S. cocaine consumption that went from 80 metric tons in 1979 to 600 metric tons in 1989 - considering that the CIA trained and equipped death squads that tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands of people from Guatemala to Panama - considering that these same people have brutalized Iraq, leaving portions of it radioactively contaminated by depleted uranium for the next 4 billion years and causing a fivefold increase in the number of childhood leukemia cases amidst a starving population, one can only wonder what they will produce for the world now given the context of the World Trade Center attacks.

This website serves as notice to Christians across this nation that President George Bush over the past few years has compromised his "Christian faith" by promoting evil and openly supporting wickedness. It is our hope and prayer that he would Repent and turn from such blatant sin. He is not our friend and cannot be trusted. This website is dedicated to providing up-to-date factual news information tracking the president's anti-Christian and ungodly behavior. We encourage you to pray for Mr. Bush.
“Why Christians Should Not Vote for George W. Bush” "The Roman emperor Nero didn’t mind Romans calling themselves Christians. He didn’t throw them to the lions or burn them at the stake because they believed in Jesus. He just wanted them to worship Caesar too. They were allowed to add Jesus to their list of Roman gods. Even today in Communist China, Christians are not beaten, tortured, and imprisoned in labor camps because they believe in Jesus or profess to be Christians. Not at all. They’re persecuted because they act like Christians..."
"Those of us familiar with Annan's record are flabbergasted," declared Cliff Kincaid, president of America's Survival, a public policy group. "This will come back to haunt the administration, both in terms of public support for its foreign policy and its ability to further the cause of freedom in international affairs." Annan's anti-American record includes:
* Annan supports the global warming treaty; Bush does not.
* Annan supports the International Criminal Court; Bush does not
* Annan favors U.N. control of national armies; Bush does not.
* Annan favors appeasement of Saddam Hussein; Bush does not.
* Annan supports an international abortion right; Bush does not
* Annan backs the ABM treaty; Bush does not.
White House Hides Clinton Fund-raising Scandal From Congress
"Friday, Sept. 7, 2001 WASHINGTON - The House Government Reform Committee on Thursday prepared to subpoena the Bush administration for documents relating to Justice Department investigations of the Clinton administration's fund-raising scandal. But the White House said it was prepared to invoke executive privilege to keep the documents secret, shocking congressional investigators.Subpoenas were also planned for another set of documents related to Boston-area organized crime.
Two sets of documents involve the Justice Department's decision not to seek an independent counsel after the 1996 campaign fund-raising scandals that hit both parties during the Clinton administration...Why Would Bush Cover Up for Clinton?The decision to seek executive privilege for the documents of another administration's scandals shocked investigators, a committee source said."We were somewhat surprised to see the White House exert executive privilege," the committee source said. ""
Why the Whitewater Investigation of Bush and the Clintons Went Nowhere:
Chairing a Senate panel on terrorism, John Kerry continued to investigate Oliver North's contra ties.
"Compromised is the true story of the Faustian pact that Bill Clinton made as governor of Arkansas. It tells how his unbridled political ambitions and his pledge to create jobs for Arkansas led him to compromise his ideals in exchange for support for his presidential candidacy in 1992.
By selling out politically to the Reagan-Bush administration, by giving the Agency free rein to operate a secret training base near the tiny western Arkansas town of Mena, and by looking the other way as Arkansas factories turned out untraceable weapons parts for the Nicaraguan Contra "freedom fighters," the young governor helped create an operation that laundered untold millions of dollars and that enriched Clinton's political friends and helped finance his campaign fund.
The Arkansas-CIA connection became Clinton's darkest secret, and only now is the tiniest shaft of light being shed on what has become known as the Whitewater scandal. Coauthor Terry Reed, who helped train Contra pilots in rural Arkansas, became the first person to pull back the shroud on the "Arkansas Connection" long before most people ever heard of Clinton cronies like Webb Hubbell, Clinton's former associate U.S. attorney-general, who became the first major figure to plead guilty in an ever-widening investigation that is confirming Reed's disclosures. Former National Security Advisor Bud McFarlane also corroborates Reed's revelation that former spymaster George Bush was in the center of the Iran-Contra loop, and he, like Reed, paints Bush as a cold-hearted powermonger bent on wrestling the White House away from Ronald Reagan.
Reed, who was recruited into the Arkansas operation by Oliver North, reveals in this eyewitness account how the "black operations" in Arkansas worked, from the training of Contra pilots and the manufacture of weapons parts-all in violation of a congressional ban on Contra aid-to the airdrops of cash into Arkansas by CIA operative Barry Seal. Seal disclosed to Reed that more than $9 million a week was dropped from planes onto secret drop zones and later laundered through an investment banking firm whose president had close ties with Clinton."

The Union Banking Coporation (UBC) "was a banking corporation in the US which was seized, under the Trading with the Enemy Act, just prior to World War II, The corporation, for which Prescott Bush was the managing director, was alleged to be a Nazi organization."
Prescott Bush From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. "Prescott Bush's business interests seized under the act in October and November 1942 included: Union Banking Corporation (UBC) (for Thyssen and Brown Brothers Harriman) Holland-American Trading Corporation (with Harriman) the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation (with Harriman) Silesian-American Corporation (with Walker) Bush's interest in UBC consisted of one share. For it, he was reimbursed $1,500,000. Toby Rogers has claimed that Bush's connections to the Silesian-American Corporation resulted in his connection with the corporation's mining operations in Poland which used slave labor out of Oswiecim, where the Auschwitz concentration camp would later be constructed; however, such charges remain, essentially, unsubstantiated."

Documents: Bush's Grandfather Directed Bank Tied to Man Who Funded Hitler "WASHINGTON — President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show.
On February 8, 1951, Thyssen died in Argentina. Following his death, the Alien Property Custodian released the assets of the Union Banking Corporation to Brown Brothers Harriman. The remaining shareholders quietly cashed in their remaining shares. Prescott Bush received $1.5 million for his share in Union Banking’s blood money.
In 1991, Republican
Senator H. John Heinz was killed when his plane collided with a Sun Oil Company helicopter over a Philadelphia suburb – the same helicopter that I often used to travel between Philadelphia and Washington, DC. The senator,
his pilot and co-pilot, and both of Sun’s helicopter pilots were killed. He was survived by his wife, Teresa, and their three young sons.
Four years later, after inheriting Heinz’s $500 million fortune, she married Senator John Forbes Kerry, the liberal junior senator from Massachusetts. She became a registered Democrat and the process of her radicalization was set in
Heinz Kerry is not shy about telling people that she required Kerry to sign a pre-nuptial agreement before they were married. John Kerry may not have check-writing privileges on the Heinz catsup and pickle fortune, but he is certainly a willing and uncomplaining beneficiary of it. A lot of hard-earned money,
made through many years of hawking catsup, pickles, and soup, has fallen into the hands of two people who despise successful entrepreneurship and who believe in the confiscatory redistribution of wealth.
So how does Mrs. Heinz Kerry spend John Heinz’s money? Just one example: According to the G2 Bulletin, an online intelligence newsletter of WorldNetDaily. in the years between 1995-2001 she gave more than $4 million to an organization called the Tides Foundation. And what does the Tides Foundation do with John Heinz’s money?
• They support numerous anti-war groups, including Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center. Clark has offered to defend Saddam Hussein when he’s tried.
• They support the Democratic Justice Fund, a joint venture of the Tides Foundation and billionaire hate-monger George Soros. The Democratic Justice Fund seeks to ease restrictions on Muslim immigration from “terrorist”states.
• They support the Council for American-Islamic Relations, whose leaders are known to have close ties to the terrorist group, Hamas.
• They support the National Lawyers Guild, organized as a communist front during the Cold War era. One of their attorneys, Lynne Stewart, has been
arrested for helping a client, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, communicate with terrorist cells in Egypt. He is the convicted mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
• They support Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League, and the Abortion Action Project.
• They support the most violent of all homosexual action groups, ACT-UP.
• They support the “Barrio Warriors,” a radical Hispanic group whose primary goal is to return all of Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas to Mexico.
These are but a few of the radical groups that benefit, through the anonymity provided by the Tides Foundation, from the generosity of our would-be first lady – the wealthy widow of Republican senator John Heinz, and now the wife of the Democratic senator who aspires to be the 44th President of the

"On the national scene, our party is preparing for this year's presidential election. Word is that initial filings have been made for participation in the national election. Although an official candidate will not be chosen until June in Philadelphia, one website I saw recently reports that the Constitution Party has a "provisional" candidate: Michael Peroutka. He is an attorney with a successful law practice in the state of Maryland, and is also the man behind the Institute on the Constitution. Our national party founder, and three time presidential candidate, Howard Phillips, has reportedly already endorsed Peroutka for the nomination. From what I know of him, he will make a good candidate as well as a fine chief executive."
Americans Must Free Themselves From A Two Party Death Grip "Consider the excuse conservatives give for President Bush's recent announcement that he supports the Clinton gun ban. Rather than holding Bush accountable for his inexcusable statement, they rush to his defense by saying, "Bush is just saying this to placate moderates. He doesn't really mean it." What they don't stop to consider is that if they are correct, G.W. Bush is a liar! It is clear, therefore, that conservatives are more than willing to support and defend someone they believe to be deliberately lying. In other words, it doesn't matter to them whether Bush tells the truth or not. He has an "R" behind his name and, therefore, they will support him. However, the same people who will justify dishonesty in the lives of their favored party's politicians would never accept such conduct from anyone else..."
Bush's Faith Based Fascism "Do you believe that churches should be directly funded by the federal government? If your answer is no, then you might want to tell that to George W. Bush. In his "Faith based Initiatives" proposal package, he advocates exactly that. This attack on the independence of churches and the First Amendment is a grave threat to our religious liberties. That such a dangerous proposal is being advanced by the Republican Party’s standard bearer without any vocal opposition by supposedly Christian Republican leaders is yet another reason for people who value their religious freedom to reject the GOP now..."

Jury Nullification: The Power of the Juror to Veto Tyrannical Law "One of the peaceful means whereby the ordinary citizen can put the brakes on tyranny is through their jury vote. The ordinary American juror has the constitutional power to do what the Congress, the Judiciary, and the Executive branch of the government have been obligated to do and have not. The ordinary American juror has that much power! He doesn't need to raise millions of dollars in a successful political campaign or start a massive grassroots effort to call or write Congressmen and Senators. He doesn't need to lobby Congress or run for office. The juror has the power to stop tyranny dead in its tracks by refusing to enforce legislation contrary to the laws of God and the principles engraved in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Congress, the President, the Supreme Court - none of these can enforce bad law! Congress can draft it, the President can sign it, the Federal judges can interpret it, but our nation’s founders decided that a jury of one’s peers would decide guilt or innocence..."

We are witnessing the death to our beloved America
FEAR And Election Year 2004
"We have no king but Caesar"
Which of the Order of Skull and Bones will you vote for in the next election ? How many will vote for Bush (a member of the Order of Skull and Bones), so that Kerry (a member of the Order of Skull and Bones) will not get elected ? Fear is a terrible thing ! For a professing Christian to cast his or her vote out of fear that "if I do not vote for Bush, Kerry will get elected" is an contradiction to the very essence of being a Christian! "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15) "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3)
Dear fellow Americans, it was at Golgotha , "the place of a skull" that 2000 years ago men and women out of fear cried, "We have no king but Caesar"; which after, the government in their day crucified our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! We now today are face with two men, Bush and Kerry which are both members of a secret organization that gives honor to the very place that crucified our King, .
But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. (John 19:15-22)
Noah Webster stated "When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers "just men who will rule in the fear of God." The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for the selfish or local purposes; Corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a Republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws."
The Pro-American intelligence men and women were prevented from properly defending American soil, and the American people! There are men and women in the U.S. government who are actively taking away our civil liberties in order to turn America over to the New World Order! These are perilous times for us as Americans- we must support those who are pro-American against all those of the New World Order- for example: liberal George Bush, who looks conservative when compared to the extremist liberal John Kerry. When freedom & privacy fades, our only real security is in Jesus Christ. Those who belong to Him need not fear the future. Believe In America! Will you help us restore our nation back to its original form of Constitutional government? Voting for George W. Bush because you are afraid of what John Kerry will do if elected, is vote cast in fear. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 .Cast a vote of faith this election season, vote for Michael A. Peroutka, the Constitution Party candidate for President of The United States.
RIGHTEOUSNESS OR REPUBLICANISM
"We must put the blame at the feet of Christians for the crisis we find ourselves in today. The Republican Party is not going save America. And our blind loyalty to it is destroying us. The party has been infiltrated with baby killers, sodomites, fornicators promoters, big government socialism, big spending money grubbers, anti gun Marxists just to name a few. This blind loyalty has given the politician a blank check to do what ever he wants. He knows that no one will know or really care because it is all about winning. To most Christians the elections are just about winning, not truth and righteousness...Matter of fact you can hardly tell the difference between a Democrat or a Republican, except the Bush administration has spent 25% more than the Clinton administration. Mr. Francis, chairman of the Republican Unity Coalition, (a homosexual lobby group) said in an interview with the New York Times, "There is not an anti-gay bone in his body". Talking about the President's body. In an article in Newsweek, December 29, 2003, President Bush was quoted as saying to the Muslim leader "Dr. al-Rubaie, I want you to convey this message to Mr. Sistani. Tell him that I pray to the same god he prays to…Tell Sistani I have nothing but praise for your religion." With all the bad Christian fruit Bush has displayed for the last 3 years, Christians still claim he is a Christian and a great president. Both parties are taking us to a New World Order at mach speed while the see no evil, hear no evil Christians do nothing. This Blind Loyalty has gone to such an extreme that if anyone mentions something negative about a Republican politician, the Christians attack the messenger. They have forgotten that God says to stand for righteousness not Republicanism. Or maybe their preachers have never bothered to mention it. If Christians are not salt and light, they are good for nothing. Every Christian will give an account on how he governed in this constitutional republic. What will the Lord Jesus Christ say, "Well done my good and faithful servant" or "their blood will I require at your hands"? It is well past time to be loyal to Christ instead of the Republican Party. Time to stand for righteousness. It is time for a third party; the Constitution Party is the one I have in mind. Visit their website at www.constitutionparty.com. Check out their party platform and their candidates and you will see a big difference. Maybe if we practice tough love the Republican Party would repent and come back to its platform. But if not, duty is duty. Let righteousness ring!"
You, as a Christian can vote for a God fearing man, or the Order of Skull and Bones from the Republicrat party above! Which will it be?

Party Endorses Presidential Candidate - October 13 - When carefully examined, there is little difference between the policies of President Bush and Senator Kerry. Their disagreement amounts to little more than a pillow fight over who will out bid the other in the auctioning off of America, her sovereignty and people, their freedom and rights--which flow from the Creator of all things. Of the candidates to choose from, only Mr. Peroutka has endorsed the policies that put America and all Americans First. A vote for Michael Peroutka will send a powerful message. (Read more...)

Diebold CEO in Ohio 'Committed to Delivering Election to Bush'
Published on Thursday, August 28, 2003 by the Cleveland Plain Dealer
Voting Machine Controversy
by Julie Carr Smyth
COLUMBUS - The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."
The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc. - who has become active in the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election.
O'Dell attended a strategy pow-wow with wealthy Bush benefactors - known as Rangers and Pioneers - at the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch earlier this month. The next week, he penned invitations to a $1,000-a-plate fund-raiser to benefit the Ohio Republican Party's federal campaign fund - partially benefiting Bush - at his mansion in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington.
The letter went out the day before Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, also a Republican, was set to qualify Diebold as one of three firms eligible to sell upgraded electronic voting machines to Ohio counties in time for the 2004 election.
Blackwell's announcement is still in limbo because of a court challenge over the fairness of the selection process by a disqualified bidder, Sequoia Voting Systems.
In his invitation letter, O'Dell asked guests to consider donating or raising up to $10,000 each for the federal account that the state GOP will use to help Bush and other federal candidates - money that legislative Democratic leaders charged could come back to benefit Blackwell.
They urged Blackwell to remove Diebold from the field of voting-machine companies eligible to sell to Ohio counties.
This is the second such request in as many months. State Sen. Jeff Jacobson, a Dayton-area Republican, asked Blackwell in July to disqualify Diebold after security concerns arose over its equipment.
"Ordinary Ohioans may infer that Blackwell's office is looking past Diebold's security issues because its CEO is seeking $10,000 donations for Blackwell's party - donations that could be made with statewide elected officials right there in the same room," said Senate Democratic Leader Greg DiDonato.
Diebold spokeswoman Michelle Griggy said O'Dell - who was unavailable to comment personally - has held fund-raisers in his home for many causes, including the Columbus Zoo, Op era Columbus, Catholic Social Services and Ohio State University.
Ohio GOP spokesman Jason Mauk said the party approached O'Dell about hosting the event at his home, the historic Cotswold Manor, and not the other way around. Mauk said that under federal campaign finance rules, the party cannot use any money from its federal account for state- level candidates.
"To think that Diebold is somehow tainted because they have a couple folks on their board who support the president is just unfair," Mauk said.
Griggy said in an e-mail statement that Diebold could not comment on the political contributions of individual company employees.
Blackwell said Diebold is not the only company with political connections - noting that lobbyists for voting-machine makers read like a who's who of Columbus' powerful and politically connected.
"Let me put it to you this way: If there was one person uniquely involved in the political process, that might be troubling," he said. "But there's no one that hasn't used every legitimate avenue and bit of leverage that they could legally use to get their product looked at. Believe me, if there is a political lever to be pulled, all of them have pulled it."
Blackwell said he stands by the process used for selecting voting machine vendors as fair, thorough and impartial.
As of yesterday, however, that determination lay with Ohio Court of Claims Judge Fred Shoemaker.
He heard closing arguments yesterday over whether Sequoia was unfairly eliminated by Blackwell midway through the final phase of negotiations.
Shoemaker extended a temporary restraining order in the case for 14 days, but said he hopes to issue his opinion sooner than that.

Following an embarrassing leak of its proprietary software over a file transfer protocol site last January, the inner workings of Diebold Election Systems have again been laid bare.
A hacker has come forward with evidence that he broke the security of a private Web server operated by the embattled e-vote vendor, and made off last spring with Diebold's internal discussion-list archives, a software bug database and more software.
The unidentified attacker provided Wired News with an archive containing 1.8 GB of files apparently taken March 2 from a site referred to by the Ohio-based company as its "staff website."
Representatives of Diebold Election Systems, one of the largest electronic voting systems vendors with more than 33,000 machines in service around the country, said the company is still investigating the security breach and reviewing the contents of the archive.
Director of Communications John Kristoff said the stolen files contained "sensitive" information, but he said Diebold is confident that the company's electronic voting system software has not been tampered with.
"Thus far we haven't seen anything that would be of use to anyone trying to affect the outcome of an election," he said.
But experts said the appearance of the archive of purloined files from the staff site raises new questions about Diebold's attention to the security of its intellectual property.
"They claim they keep everything secure, but this shows the lax nature of their procedures. This just blatantly flies in the face of good security," said Rebecca Mercuri, a computer science professor at Bryn Mawr College who opposes the use of electronic voting systems.
The anonymous attacker said he broke into the Diebold staff site, which was located at https://staff.dieboldes.com, after reading in January about how unauthorized outsiders had copied source code and documentation from an insecure FTP site operated by the company at the Internet address ftp://ftp.gesn.com.
"In a few short minutes I had access to their replacement for the FTP site, their 'secure' web," wrote the hacker.
Last month, researchers at Johns Hopkins University used source code from
the FTP site to publish an
The archive of internal Diebold Election Systems mailing lists taken from the staff site includes thousands of messages dating from January 1999 through March 2003. The lists contained internal company discussions of product support issues, new software announcements and general company announcements.
"We do not believe there is any real security threat, but perception matters a great deal in this business!" wrote Pat Green, Diebold Election Systems' director of research and development, in a Feb. 7 message to the company's "support" discussion list. Green was announcing the temporary shutdown of the Diebold staff site.
Two days before, on Feb. 5, activist Bev Harris detailed in an article at New Zealand news site called Scoop how she had freely accessed thousands of files from Diebold's FTP server.
The hacker did not reveal how he subsequently breached the security of the Diebold staff site, which used SSL encryption. The file archive included source code to a login page that included a March 2 welcome message to one of the firm's election support specialists, suggesting the attacker may have compromised the employee's account.
Judging from internal mailing list discussions, Diebold management was either unaware of proper information security practices, or chose to ignore them out of expediency, experts said.
"There is no sane reason to put the corporate jewels on an Internet-facing server. They were basically asking to be hacked," said Jeff Stutzman, CEO of ZNQ3, a provider of information security services. "This is the kind of behavior you expect of a startup company that's only concerned about selling their first product."
But Kristoff said the staff server housed only compiled, executable programs, and not the raw source code to Diebold's election systems. He said it was "an oversight" that source code was available to the public from the FTP server in January.
The Diebold discussion-list archives included other warnings of potential security problems. In May 2000, Diebold Election Systems' systems engineer manager Talbot Iredale posted a message to the support list chiding employees for placing software files on the special "customer" section of the FTP site without password-protecting them. That section of the site was created for delivering program updates and other files to election officials and other customers.
"This potentially gives the software away to whom ever (sic) wants it," wrote Iredale.
On Dec. 2 last year, Diebold Election Systems' webmaster Joshua Gardner announced to the list that the FTP site finally was being eliminated and replaced by the staff site. Gardner explained that the FTP site had been "accessible to the outside world with no restrictions on access, and no provisions for logging user activity. FTP was a security risk, and I have shut it down for this reason."
Yet nearly eight weeks later, Internet users apparently still were able to access the FTP site without a password and to download proprietary software and manuals.
Kristoff said Diebold has shut down the FTP and staff sites, and the company no longer provides customers or field personnel with access to Diebold software over the Internet. Instead, software and proprietary data has been distributed by CD-ROM since January, he said.
Even if unauthorized individuals were able to access and modify voting system source code, some e-voting experts downplay the impact of such theoretical threats. After the earlier problems at Diebold's FTP site, Brit Williams of the Center for Election Systems at Kennesaw State University published a report last April noting (PDF) that some states, such as Georgia, carefully review source code prior to use in electronic voting systems.
But Stutzman said Diebold's Internet security problems necessitate that the company hire a "Big Five-caliber" firm to conduct a thorough inspection of its software code, and to insure that malicious outsiders have not tampered with it.
"To gain credibility back, they … have to do a line-by-line audit to make sure that their intellectual property is still sound," said Stutzman.
