Bush Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta resigned on June 23, 2006, the day after his 9/11 Commission testimony had been referred to by a guest on FOX News' "Hannity & Colmes" program.
Norman Mineta had testified nearly three years before, during the second public hearings of the commission. His testimony revealed that Vice President Dick Cheney had allowed Flight 77 to hit the Pentagon:
Mineta: "During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President...the plane is 50 miles out...the plane is 30 miles out....and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president "do the orders still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!??"
"Grey on Top, with FIRE in the Heart?" asks Ted Truscott on his website, raisingcanes.net, as if in challenge.
He is a man with over 30 years of martial arts experience, a man who maintains that, if you can play tennis or if you can dance, you too can learn the use of the cane for self defence.
Ted is the founder of The Raising Canes Club, a club for seniors which offers training in a "legal and 'invisible' weapon". Those who pass the tests of this club learn "how to hit with power" and "the strikes with various parts of the cane".
In Truscott's well-known essay "The Fighting Cane", he explains the strategic advantage of relying on "the invisible weapon":
President Bush has issued an Executive Order which will allow him to utilize public and private communication infrastructure to directly communicate his ideas to America.
The order creates the Emergency Alert System (EAS) which will replace existing alert systems, allowing the administration to "ensure that under all conditions the President can communicate with the American people". Mention of the existing "Emergency Broadcast System" will be replaced with the new term "Emergency Alert System".
What this means is that George Bush, like "Big Brother" in Orwell's 1984, will be able to bypass media criticism to push forward his agenda.
Right-Wing Blogger Suggests Readers "Track Down" NYT Reporters, Gets Tracked Down Himself in Blog Comments
George Bush's support base has been energized by the administration's recent threats to level treason charges against the New York Times for daring to report on more secret government surveillance.
Bush's base is now looking for any excuse to direct venom at the Times. After a recent fluff piece mentioned the widely known locations of Rumsfeld and Cheney's vacation homes, one enterprising right-wing blogger spun the piece as more "treason". The blogger, calling himself Dennis K (screen capture backup here), suggested that the New York Time's reporters and editors be "tracked down":
Let's start with the following New York Times reporters and editors: Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger Jr. , Bill Keller, Eric Lichtblau, and James Risen.
(Breaking FrogStyle news: Bush shown on video lying about 9/11!)
You thought you knew the human race? You were incorrect. Here are FrogStyle's top 10 questionable YouTube groups:
1. Male Pedal Pumping
"This group is for guys who are into pedal pumping, flooding, and cranking either barefoot, boots, sneakers or socks."
Hey. What about sandals?
2. giantess 101
"this group is for the guys who love watching giantess clips"
That YouTube thing sure is something else... a veritable fondue of video.
There are countless videos of teenage girls screaming along to things, a group called hotballlust (which features men getting kicked around), and... bikes!
FrogStyle has started a video group called bikearts to feature videos about pedal-powered livin', lovin', and fightin'. Share up your videos of cycling exploits, experimental rides, and biking actions with the mystical multimedia melting pot what is a Youtube massive.
The US Supreme Court ruled in favour of a Guantanamo detainee who is fighting to have an open trial. Under the Bush administration, secret military tribunals, which violate the Geneva Contentions, have been used to avoid open court.
BBC News has a good analysis of the differences between military tribunals and open court:
* Convictions in civilian courts must be unanimous, while the military tribunals proposed by Mr Bush would be able to convict by a two-thirds majority
I did a job like this once, a long, long time ago. No one in the office ate lunch but everyone snacked covertly the whole day through.
