There Are Things Worse Than 8 Years of Bill Clinton.
There have been a few people who are upset at the Republican Party.

There has been some mention about punishing the RNC by staying away from the polls in a few weeks.

I will say this, if they are displeased with the actions of a Republican controlled Congress, will a Democratic controlled government be better?

We have seen the results of a generation of that.

Their intentions may be good, the results of their actions may be a disaster, if carried out.

Yes I know Winning through Defeat worked at the Alamo. But it was a tad hard on the troops there.

We cannot afford to willingly give the Democrats control of the House and Senate until the '08 Elections.

We may end up giving them control, unwillingly, and while I do not think they can take us beyond the point of no return, who wants to risk it.

I was never more brought to an awareness of the consequences until I read in Confederate Yankee Democrats Plot Impeachment and President Pelosi at Flares into Darkness.

Yes I want you to contemplate these small factoids.
the ultimate goal. H. Res. 635, H. Res 636, and H. Res 637 are the numbers of the bills introduced to impeach Bush and Cheney. If the Democrats can't win the White House any other way I guess they will try a little coup.


Most of the posts link to a Frontpage Magazine Article,The Coming Impeachment

A plan is in place to censure and impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Orchestrated and organized by the radical Left and Congressman John Conyers, Jr., this plan is ready to go should the Democratic Party take control of the House of Representatives in November.



I do think Ace of Spades said it best in The Coming Impeachment Of Bush
Impeached. Over the NSA eavesdropping program.

And, of course, global warming.

Maybe people should vote or somethin'


Because, there are things worse than 8 years of Bill Clinton (the results of the last time folks decided to punish the Republican Party), and one of those worse things could be Nancy Pelosi as President of the United States.

Think about it, and if that sends cold chills down your spine? Maybe you should,

vote or somethin'

J'ACCUSE !
I am bumping this post up. Mainly because there is post on a website that is on the extreme other side of the political spectrum that I occupy which has a very good article on this same subject. Odd how two people on oppisite sides of a political fence can agree on individual rights and abuse. Or maybe not odd. More the way things should be?

From abyss2hope: A rape survivor's zigzag journey into the open inWhen Programs To Protect Victims Fail

In so many cases of violence against women, the systems that victims interact with or that are designed to help victims are designed by people who have no first hand insight into the problem they are trying to deal with or well-designed programs get approved but then become little more than a shell because there isn't a political need to provide effective programs.

We wouldn't allow a highway system to be designed with no one on the design team who will ever go on those roads and no one who has gone on the existing roads. We also wouldn't spend millions to build roads and then have little or no funding to keep the roads in good repair and expect everyone to say the system works well. continued


Beware The State Bearing Gifts.

I want you to keep those words in mind, "Beware The State Bearing Gifts", you who read the tale, I am about to unfold.

I originally thought to use them as the title of this exposition, but instead, thought it more fitting to call this polemic J'ACCUSE!, the immortal words of Emile Zola, the great French novelist,as they appeared in a Paris literary newspaper, L'Aurore (The Dawn) on Thursday, Jan. 13, 1898, ".

When he wrote his accusations in a letter to the President of France denouncing the sacrifice of the Rights of Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, on the Alter of State Expediency.

" No other newspaper article has ever provoked such public debate and controversy or had such an impact on law, justice, and society."


I do not hope to create such a conflagration, but I do hope to ignite a spark, in a few, and maybe those few can nurture it, spread it and carry it much further than this small insignificant blog.

I am going to relate a tale of the suppression of the rights of one woman, to an extreme that surpasses even the injustice done to ALFRED DREYFUS.


A story, so bizarre, so convoluted, that when she approached other organs of the State, for succor, no one believed her!


There exists in Canada a program called NIVA (New Identities For Victims of Abuse). This is a noble endeavor, it had admirable aims, but,

When Candace unwillingly enrolled in a secret government protection process which offers Battered Women facing possible deaths in the hands of violent partners new identities to escape the abuse, little did she know that she was "jumping from the frying pan into the fire"!


Yes you read correctly unwillingly enrolled , against her wishes, terrorized into entering a program, and making sacrifices, that her situation did not warrant, and then abandoned. Her very identity ripped from her, forced to exist in a limbo of legal non-existence.

The man,whose abuse had prompted her to approach the State for Justice and Protection, paid for his actions, was punished, how?

With absolutely nothing. No repercussions, no penalties, no fines, nor even prosecution.

Candace, instead was the one who sacrificed, everything.

Everything but the breath in her body and her child, and even in that last instance the State did not even take the precaution of assuring her legally total custody rights to her child.

I will provide links to more complete details of this story, which if read by any right thinking person, will lead to only one conclusion.

This woman was violated in every possible way that it is possible to be violated.

Appealing to the State for Justice and Protection, Candace received neither Justice, nor Protection, instead the State stripped her of everything of value to her, her rights, her identity and her dignity.

There is a word in English to describe such a violation, That word is RAPE

J'ACCUSE !

I ACCUSE the State of the Institutionalized Rape of the Woman Known as Candace.

Read her story and weep.

Come with me now on a Journey of Discovery. I warn you it will be a Dark Journey, because it is a Journey into the Belly of the Beast that is the State gone rogue.

Some Great Men once wrote these words.

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it


They wrote them, because in All Government there lies a potential for abuse and when the Juggernaut of the State forgets that it is the Servant of the People, instead of their Master, steps must be taken.

Do I advocate that NIVA be abolished? No it's intent is good, but as we shall see it must be altered because it has gone terribly wrong.

My Journey of Discovery of this truth began with an email

Hi kdan,
i am trying to help this woman if you could do a story and help I would appreciate it, can you let me know. It is so bad she has no clothes and no bed, furniture, little food, etc. She emailed me and being I been in NIVA I know what it was like and it is this bad, so please if you can help let me know and do more to get it out. The story at the like can be condensed I have Margaret permission to do so and it no problem you could even do a different angle. Anything really
Do you mind if I cc to the the email also
if any questions please email back
Look forward to hearing from you
Holly
Holly's Fight for Justice
http://fightforjustice.blogspot.com
Thank you for any help
http://www.indymedia.org/en/2006/01/832211.shtml


I have had an internet acquaintance with the author of that email for some time and her story is also daunting. Daunting and evidence of experiences that qualifies her to make statements on this issue, and judgments of the validity of the statements of others.

Here are just a few items from her past.

"America's Most Wanted John Walsh...aired the story, which helped bring a serial rapist flight from justice to an end!"

READER'S DIGEST for published her personal story.

Holly's Fight for Justice
Victim of a serial rapist, the young woman from Red Deer, Alta., determined to bring her attacker to trial.

Those who know Rasai's case attribute his arrest to Holly's fight not to let the file be forgotten. "Holly actually forced institutions to do their jobs," says Scott Newark, executive director of the Canadian Police Association.

Holly's case and others like it also helped change Canada's Immigration Act. Would-be immigrants like Rasai can now be turned away if officials believe they committed a crime outside Canada punishable here by a jail term of ten years or more.

Holly has since started a new life in a new city. Reflecting on her crusade, she says: "Either you're going to live with the pain and deal with it, or you're going to die from it. If I had not fought to see Rasai caught, I would have died inside."



In a world where people commonly think one person cannot make a difference, Holly made a difference, forced the Law and Society to correct Injustice and now she is trying to do that for others.

Another person on this stage is MARGARET AKULIA,
Margaret Akulia was sponsored as a student refugee to Canada by WORLD UNIVERSITY SERVICE OF CANADA. Since immigrating to Canada in 1987, Akulia has held various positions and worked in different capacities, including and not limited to working as a Counsellor, Advocate; Human Rights Officer with the Canadian Human Rights Commission; Administrator; Community Development Consultant; Trainer; Researcher; Grassroots Educator, Group Facilitator, STORY TELLER and ENTREPRENEUR. Her ongoing work includes advocating for change and implementing solutions in areas adversely affecting disadvantaged and historically marginalized groups


Margaret Akulia is an African born Canadian Social Justice activist with a multidisciplinary background. Since immigrating to Canada in 1987, Ms. Akulia has held various positions and worked in different capacities, including serving as a Board of Director for various organizations and groups advocating for socio-economic solutions in areas adversely affecting disadvantaged and historically marginalized groups, locally and globally.


Both of these women have vast personal experience with the issues of Abuse and Social Injustice, to an extent that dispels any thought that this story is one of exaggeration.

The Lancet lies...
Those are words used in the title of an article by an Iraqi named Omar who has a blogsite called

Iraq the Model the full title of what he wrote is


Responding to the Lancet lies...
When I read the report I can only feel apathy and inhumanity from those who did the count towards the victims and towards our suffering as a whole. I can tell they were so pleased when the equations their twisted minds designed led to those numbers and nothing can convince me that they did their so called research out of compassion or care.

To me their motives are clear, all they want is to prove that our struggle for freedom was the wrong thing to do. And they shamelessly use lies to do this…when they did not find the death they wanted to see on the ground, they faked it on paper! They disgust me…

This fake research is an insult to every man, woman and child who lost their lives.
Behind every drop of blood is a noble story of sacrifice for a just cause that is struggling for living safe in freedom and prosperity.


Those are the words used by Omar as a reaction to the Lancet study. The whole is worth reading. The blog itself is worth study. It will contain information, and sentiments you will never find in Mainstream Media reporting, and anyone who has not had their mind made up for them with agit-prop soundbites would have to ask themselves,"Why has this been hidden, covered up, suppressed ignored.

But it is true it is an emotional reactions, so there will be many who can comfort themselves that the Lancet study has facts and numbers on its side.

But does it really? It has claims but few will have looked at its facts They will read the different variations of the numbers 600K, 650K, 655K and will look no further.

The Lancet Study itself can be found on the Lancet site. Registration if free.Study estimates 655 000 excess Iraqi deaths since start of war


For most that would be complicate, involved and confusing.

Omar also wrote down his thoughts on a website called, Politics Central. Its title is a little longer. J'accuse: Iraq the Model responds to the Lancet Lies, again Omars essay is more emotional and subjective, rather than objective.

But in the comments section, one commenter brings up some very revealing statistics. Their claim can be verified in the Lancet site itself.

Soldier's Dad : states this,
I'll shoot a hole in the Lancet Study.

The mortality rate in the EU is 10.10/1000.

The Mortality rate in the US is 8.5/1000.


The mortality rate in Hungary is 13/1000

The world average mortality rate is 8.5/1000 per year.

The Lancet study uses a "baseline" mortality rate of 5.5. Half the mortality rate of Europe.

After all their fancy interviews...the Lancet Study comes up with a mortality rate for Iraq that is statistically the same as Hungary.

I must have missed it, but Hungary hasn't been at war for decades. The EU has been at peace for 60 years. They have the worlds best healthcare.

But their baseline mortality rates are more than double Saddams Iraq.

It is really easy to come up with a huge "excess deaths" number if one believes that no one ever died of anything in Iraq prior to 2003.


Iraq was an idyllic socialist paradise...unequaled since the Garden of Eden during Saddams reign.

Just ask Saddam...and not those pesky Kurds or Shiites that were mass murdered.

But then...so was the Soviet Union except for those 10's of millions that just magically "disappeared".

There is no lie too great that the hardcore leftist communists wouldn't tell.


So for those who have accepted the Lancet study as gospel and a smoking gun to denounce America with?

You must also accept as the truth that the Iraq mortality rate before the Invasion, was almost half of Europe's and in addition thirty-five percent lower that Americas. I have give above a link to the Lancet website and the study for those who wish to verify this claim. Some will not go to that much trouble, the Lancet Lies are too convenient.

Anyone who can still claim in the face of those numbers that the Lancet Study has any relationship to the truth has no idea what that word means.

There definition is instead, anything that can damage America, with no desire for what the truth really is or what the Iraqis feel.

There are those who truly want peace, at times I disagree with their opinions, but there are others who do not really care about Peace, they do not care about the Iraqi People, they merely care about how to damage America.

George Orwell once said.

"Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me.'"" -


Those who support Oppressive Totalitarian Regimes out of naivety are one thing, those who do it out of malice for America are another and some of them are Americans

This is nothing new, they have been with us from the beginning of the Republic.

Samuel Adams spoke of such:

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us
in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down
and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon
you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.


We have an election coming up, I hope people find out about these facts and before they pull that lever, fill in those spaces, they ask themselves.

How would Samuel Adams Vote?

The Open Trackback Alliance XLVI
UPDATE: Denmark Exports Soaring
After blogger Judith Klinghoffer and an army of Davids declared a "Buy Danish" campaign to combat the Muslim boycott. The Guardian says "fervent rightwing Americans" participated in the buying spree and implies that the cartoonists were responsible for the deaths of 139 people.(like it was the cartoonists who killed those people instead of the ones who shed their blood, how like the Progressive TransNazi viewpoint)


For your listening pleasure while you browse

"Der er et yndigt land" (There Is A Lovely Land)


Words by: Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager
Music by: Hans Ernst Kr?yer
Adopted: 1844

"Derer et yndigt land" was first performed for a large gathering of Danes in 1844, and became popular quickly with the Danish people. It was adopted later that year by the Danish government as a national anthem, but not the sole national anthem. This anthem is on equal status with "Kong Christian",which is both the national and royal anthem.

When the Danish anthem is usually performed or sung, the first verse is played in its entirety, then it is followed by the last four lines of the last verse. (This is true whether the lyrics are sung or not



Recentlty I have been posting music to Illustrate the Diversity of America, this week I have a different motive to express Solidarity with DENMARK


I maintain my Support of Denmark, and will later today, post links to and my thoughts about a Danish Editorial "We are being pissed upon by Per Nyholm "

I think I shall title my Post, "There is no "But" in "Freedom of Speech".




When I first started upon my journey through the blogverse I created a
Statement of Purpose
Now upon reading it, one can realize that I did not hold to every detail of that original statement, but from it's basic premise, I have never swayed, in my belief that the Blogs are in fact the Committees of Correspondence of the Second American Revolution.

And that it is a Revolution of Information, no longer can we afford and allow elite gateways to control what we can see, hear and discuss.

For I believe that those bloggers who find their way, here and in particular from the Blogs associated with Sam.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.

Some of us are more Serious, some of us are more lighthearted and some post the common ordinary things that make one smile and recall that Life without the simple things to treasure is meaningless.

And it is important that all have a platform from which to speak.

As I understand this process you can link to this post and trackback to this post on ANY subject or post you think important. It is open. I will repeat this every Monday.

The Committees of Correspondence welcomes your intelligent comments. And also welcomes you to join the

OPEN TRACKBACK ALLIANCE


This week I also have shortened my usual introduction for a more inportant message.




In it's struggle for Freedom of Speech.

Sign the Petition NOW!

JEG opstille hos Danmark!




45245 Total Signatures 12:45 AM CDT October 02, 2006 We can do better pass the word~!

Created by Mark Jefferson on March 1st, 2006 at 5:42 pm AST

After having overcome fascism, Nazism, and Stalinism, the world now faces a new totalitarian global threat: Islamism.
We, writers, journalists, intellectuals, call for resistance to religious totalitarianism and for the promotion of freedom, equal opportunity and secular values for all. "

Najis Unclean Things
We seem to be having yet another incident of bogus religious outrage from Muslims wanting to insinuate Sharia Changes into our society.

It would appear that some Cab drivers in Minneapolis-St. Paul object to fares who have possession of alcohol because they claim their religion forbids them to transport it.

Actually their religion forbids them to touch or consume it because
alcohol is one of the ten items listed as
Najis Things or Unclean.

But then, as you can see by this list so are Kafir

Najis Things





84. * The following ten things are essentially najis:



So my question is, If they cannot transport alcohol because it is Najis (Unclean), how is it they can transport a Kafir(Non-Muslim)??

Reminds me about the Piglet flap last year and the demand that Pig Images be hidden so as not to offend Muslims, but no mention of Dog images which turn out to be SEVEN times more unclean than Pigs or Kafir for that matter.

I wrote a few things about this subject last year.

First Piglet Then Lassie?????????

Let's check out a few things on Muslim doctrine as it regards the Unclean.

Removing Impurity How to cleanse oneself of pig-related impurity

With regard to how to cleanse oneself of pig-related impurity, some scholars are of the view that it should be washed seven times, one of which should be with earth, by analogy with dogs.

But the correct view is that pig-related impurity should be washed only once. Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in his commentary on Muslim (Sharh Muslim): ?Most of the scholars were of the view that pig-related impurity does not have to be washed seven times. This is the view of al-Shaafa?i, and it has the strongest evidence.?



With us so far? Pigs are Unclean, but DOGS are really unclean. It is true some Muslims think Pigs may be as Unclean as Dogs, but while this is disputed by others, they all agree that touching a Dog, requires washing 7 times.
This is what Shaykh Ibn ?Uthaymeen thought most likely to be correct, as he said in al-Sharh al-Mumti?, 1/495): ?The fuqaha? (may Allaah have mercy on them) likened (pig-related) impurity to dog-related impurity, because pigs are dirtier than dogs, so the ruling should apply even more so.

This is a weak analogy, because pigs are mentioned in the Qur?aan and they existed at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and there is no report which likens them to dogs. So the correct view is that pig-related impurity is like any other kind of impurity, and there is no need to wash seven times, one of which should be with dust or dirt.?


Now this next part is of much interest.
The correct view concerning washing other types of impurity is that whatever will remove the impurity is sufficient, and there is no specific number of times it must be washed.


There are other considerations as to whether or not the Najis, Unclean item contaminates a Muslim
Simply touching something impure does not make the body impure,


unless there is some wetness either in the impure substance or on the body.

Shaykh Ibn Jibreen said:

If the body or clothes are dry and touch something impure that is also dry, that does not matter, because the impurity is only transferred when it is wet. Fataawa Islamiyyah, 1/194

Based on this, the hand does not become impure simply by touching these gloves that are made of pigskin, unless the hand or the gloves are wet.

If the hands become impure by touching the pigskin when there is some wetness, then you have to wash your hands. It is sufficient to wash them once, because there is no command to wash something impure seven times, one of which is with dust or dirt, except in the case of impurity caused by a dog.

So the Muslim should strive to keep his body and clothes clean and pure, and avoid wearing these gloves that are made of pigskin, because that involves touching something impure and exposes his hands and clothes to the risk of becoming impure, which would affect the validity of his prayers. But if he needs to wear these gloves because he cannot find anything else, then it is permissible for him to wear them, so long as he is careful to avoid contaminating his body or clothes, and he hastens to wash off any impurity if he gets it on him, so that he does not transfer it anywhere else or forget to wash it off his hands or clothes



So what does this all boil down to?

Well it appears that the indignation over images of Pigs, with no mention whatsoever about Dogs was totally bogus.

Indeed being around these items is of no consequence, touching them is of no consequence, unless they are wet and make the hands of the person wet.

Indeed as you can see above it is permissible to touch that which is Najis, Unclean if it cannot be avoided, they just have to wash their hands afterwards.

Now as to the alcohol? Who is going to make a Taxi Cab Driver handle the bottle?

And since the fare if a Non-Muslim is just as Najis, Unclean as the Alcohol?

Oh by the way not ALL Alcohol is even Najis, Unclean.

Alcoholic Liquor



112. * All Alcoholic liquors and beverages which intoxicate a person, are najis and on the basis
of recommended precaution, everything which is originally liquid and intoxicates a person, is
najis. Hence narcotics, like, opium and hemp, which are not liquid originally, are Pak, even when a liquid is added to them.


113. All kinds of industrial alcohol used for painting doors, windows, tables, chairs etc. are Pak.


114. If grapes or grape juice ferments by itself, or on being cooked, they are Pak, but it is
haraam to eat or drink them.


115. If dates, currants and raisins, and their juice ferment, they are Pak and it is halal to eat
them.



Cool, it is ok to eat fermented dates and raisins, smoke pot and even mix opiates with a liquid and drink it? Beer is out though.

Unless of course it is taken for medicinal purposes.









Beer (Fuqa')


116. * Beer, which is prepared from barley, and is called 'Ab-i-Jaw', is haraam, but there is
Ishkal in it being najis. But barley water which is medically prepared, and is called 'Maush-
Shaeer', is Pak.

Evil Republican Magi
Update: I just found out this story even made the Wall Street Journal in Best of the Web on Opinion Journal! Psychics Stole the Election!
In an Election Day post on a pagan discussion group at LiveJournal.com, someone using the handle "DragonTDC" offers this explanation for what turned out to be Bush's victory:

I have decided to bump this post up from my archives for several reasons.

One: Tomorrow is Friday the 13th and a post about Evil Republican Magis with Hell Hounds seems somehow appropriate?

Two: Some say the outcome of this upcoming Election is in doubt and I say, Hey stick with what works! Let the other side have the roll over in your grave and mail in absentee ballots, zombie vote, we have Evil Magis
with Hell Hounds!

And Finally and most importantly.

Three: I want to JOIN. I mean to say, being an Evil Republican Magi with a Hell Hound sounds really cool!

But instead of a "Black Mercedes or a Lincoln, could I have a Black Dodge Daytona? There is something about that car that just looks evil. I remember as a teenager standing on the side of the road and watching one ease by, it was like seeing a Shark going put-put-put down the road. It Oozed Ominous!




The outcome of this last election had been blamed on many factors. The Evangelical Christian Moral Right, the Unteachable Ignorance of Red State Votes

But the TRUTH has finally come out!

The real cause of Bush's victory over the forces of Light and the Democratic Party---

WAS

Evil Republican Magi aided by Hell Hounds.




Read all about this suppressed dark secret. ;-)

Magical Election Tampering: SHUT IT DOWN!


Ok, I can understand the restlessness I've been feeling since yesterday. There's a lot riding on this election, and passions are running high on both sides, so naturally eceryone and their naked brother who has an ounce of Power and no clue about Shielding is leaking energy like a hair dryer in a bathtub. So it's Shields Up for me, but I'm still getting enough bleedover to make me jittery and a little manic if I don't concentrate. That's all to be expected.

What wasn't expected was that once I filtered out all that background noise, I started hearing a calm, resonable, and powerful head-voice saying things like "Kerry doesn't have the experience we need in these troubled times." and "Give Bush a chance to make it better."

Anyone who knows me KNOWS these are not my thoughts!

And besides, I voted last week. No, there's no way in Hades these are my thoughts.

Gods-damn it! The f*cking Republicans have got Magical help pumping out a clear, unified, focused broadcast, and you can be sure, every sensitive is picking it up. These are the people most likely to vote Kerry, and I'd like to think they are resolute enough not to be swayed by telepathic subliminal advertising, but it's such a rarely-done thing, and so few people are properly trained these days, that I fear it will be more effective. Just watch and see who says "I was going to vote for Kerry, but for some reason I changed my mind at the last minute."

Who would be doing this for them? Gee, who are the Mages driving around in those black Mercedes and Lincolns with the tinted windows? The ones who live in the mansions with the hell-hounds in the yard and the 7-foot tall hairless black doormen? Every town has some, the bigger the town, the more of these "High Magi" you will find.

I have no idea what their agenda may be, but you can be damn sure the welfare of the common human on the street is not a part of it.

So shield, people, shield. And screen. And if you can shield a polling place, do it! I'm not saying to try to interfere with people's choices, but rather prevent them from being interfered with.

This is important, people, and it may be too late already

Mexico may take fence dispute to U.N.
Hat Tip Captain's Quarters in Mexico Wants UN To Block Fence

By JENNY BARCHFIELD, Associated Press Writer
Mexico's foreign secretary said Monday the country may take a dispute over U.S. plans to build a fence on the Mexican border to the United Nations.

Luis Ernesto Derbez told reporters in Paris, his first stop on a European tour, that a legal investigation was under way to determine whether Mexico has a case.

The Mexican government last week sent a diplomatic note to Washington criticizing the plan for 700 miles of new fencing along the border. President-elect Felipe Calderon also denounced the plan, but said it was a bilateral issue that should not be put before the international community.

Derbez said Monday after meeting with French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy that it was a "shame" U.S. immigration policy had been used for what he claimed was a short-term political gain in the lead-up to midterm elections in the U.S. in November.

He said he discussed the issue with Douste-Blazy, and planned to bring it up in meetings with his Spanish and Italian counterparts during visits to Madrid and Rome. He vowed to work on the case until the "very last day" of President Vicente Fox's term, which ends Dec. 1.


For those who might wonder on what grounds the UN might think they have for interfering in construction inside the territory of a Sovereign Nation, I might point out the So Called UN Open Borders Initiative.

The UN's "Borderless" World

The United Nations sees the matter differently. Its bureaucrats envision a “borderless” encourage free movement of the developing countries’ poor to developed nations. This philosophy underlies their preparations for the United Nations High Level Dialogue concerning international migration and development, scheduled to take place in conjunction with the fall 2006 General Assembly session. They want the agenda for this Dialogue to center on the relationship between international migration and the economic and social development of the poorer countries in the world.

The UN bureaucrats’ aggressive push into the immigration debate fits in with their dogmatic belief that international treaties should trump national sovereignty prerogatives – in this case, a UN treaty that codifies the internationalization of immigration policy called the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families. This Convention was adopted by the General Assembly in 1990 but went into effect in 2003 after the twentieth signing country formally ratified it. It is heavily biased against countries like the United States which receive the lion’s share of illegal aliens.

Indeed, the Convention goes so far as to use the term ‘irregular’ as a euphemism for illegal aliens and would require their destination countries to provide them with an array of benefits and justiciable rights. This explains why the ratifying countries are the ones who are effectively exporting their economic problems to the United States and other destination countries, and why the destination countries in turn have not signed on.

The United Nations wants to change all that by seeking to position the right to freely migrate from poor to richer lands as a fundamental human right deserving of universal recognition. Indeed, they view internationally managed migration as an effective means to socially engineer the end of wealth disparities existing between the world’s most developed countries and the world’s developing countries. “Migration must become an integral part of global development strategies”, said a report prepared last fall by the Global Commission on International Migration set up with Kofi Annan’s assistance to help prepare the way for this fall’s United Nations High Level Dialogue. Using the euphemism ‘irregular migration’ to refer to illegal aliens, the Commission warned that restrictive national policies are “neither desirable nor feasible, and may jeopardize the rights of migrants and refugees.”

To the UN ‘experts’ who advocate using migration as a global development tool, the unemployed poor should become the economic charges of their destination countries. For those migrants who do manage to find jobs in their destination countries, they would be expected to send money back to their families still residing in their countries of origin. These remittances, as they are called, are seen by the UN’s migration development advocates as an indirect form of aid generated from the economies of the host countries and adding significantly to the gross national product of the migrants’ countries of origin. If transfers that went through informal channels were added to the official statistics, remittances could be as high as $300 billion. They are larger than official development assistance (ODA) and more than foreign direct investment (FDI).

At the same time, these same UN ‘experts’ want to discourage the movement of those skilled educated workers from a developing country who seek better economic opportunities for themselves and their families where their skills will bring them more reward. With regard to those skilled workers who do migrate, the UN ‘experts’ expect the prosperous destination countries of these skilled workers to compensate the less developed countries of origin for the so-called “brain drain”. Of course, nothing is said about requiring compensation from the countries of origin for the educational and monetary benefits the destination countries are paying to assist their poor nationals who cross the border illegally.

In short, if the UN advocates of open borders have their way, the developing countries would get to transfer their economic underclass without any cost to the destination countries, which would be expected to subsidize them. The developing countries would also receive compensation from the destination countries where their skilled nationals have migrated in order to find gainful employment that is not available back home.


A simple translation of the above philosophy is State Sponsored Slavery, the concept that the State owns the individual and thus deserves compensation, for the denial of their services, coupled with an Internationaly enforced redistribution of wealth.

Migration Without Borders: an Investigation into the Free Movement of People

There is a Science Fiction series in which the UN with the EU, China and Mexico, go to War with the US over a proposed UN Referendum to return the Southwest States of the US to Mexico, our Allies are Russia, because the price for China's support was Siberian Russia and Japan.

I am wondering if the premises of those works of Fiction are that farfetched.

A Vegan Lifestyle Can Be Deadly
First they came for the Spinach,
and I did not say anything because?
I don't like Spinach










Officials zero in on possible source of tainted spinach

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Test results linking two bags of Dole brand baby spinach to a deadly E. coli strain have helped health officials focus on a specific batch from a San Juan Bautista processing plant that may be the source of a nationwide outbreak.

The investigation remains focused on Natural Selection Foods LLC, which officials believe packaged the tainted spinach for Dole and dozens of other brands. They're looking specifically at nine farms in three California counties that supplied leafy greens to the company.

Both tainted bags -- one found in Utah over the weekend and the other in New Mexico earlier last week -- were processed during the same shift on Aug. 15 at Natural Selection's plant, said Dr. Kevin Reilly, deputy director of prevention services for the California Department of Health Services.(Watch federal officials try to pinpoint the E. coli source -- 2:02) "We are looking very aggressively at what was produced on that date," Reilly said Monday. "Much of the feedback we got from patients right now was related to Dole packaging."

Pennsylvania health officials said Tuesday that a bag of Dole baby spinach purchased there was also tied to the deadly E. coli strain. A lab identified the strain in a sample of spinach purchased on or around Sept. 8 in western Pennsylvania.


Then it was Lettuce.

Feds eye water in lettuce E. coli case
BY DELTHIA RICKS
Newsday Staff Writer

October 10, 2006


E. coli-tainted irrigation water apparently contaminated California lettuce, recalled over the weekend by its producer, but federal regulators say at this juncture there's no linking the microbe to the dangerous strain that sickened 199 people and killed three who consumed contaminated spinach.

Nunes Co. voluntarily recalled more than 8,500 cartons of what it calls its "green leaf lettuce" grown in the Salinas Valley on a single farm. The region has been at the center of an intense probe in recent weeks following an outbreak of infections caused by E. coli O157:H7, linked to spinach also grown in that area.


It's not like this is anything new either.

Dole Lettuce E. coli Outbreak
In September and October, 2005, at least 23 Minnesotans became ill with E. coli O157:H7 infections after consuming Dole brand triple-washed, pre-packaged lettuce. Consumers in Wisconsin and Oregon who suffered E. coli infections in the same time period were also determined to be part of the Dole lettuce E. coli outbreak through genetic testing and an epidemiological investigation into their illnesses.


So what is the solution?

How can one prevent E. coli O157: H7 infection?


1. Cook all ground beef thoroughly.



Preventing E. coli at Petting ZoosEating undercooked ground beef is the most important risk factor for acquiring E. coli O157:H7.[1] Because ground beef can turn brown before disease causing bacteria are killed, use a digital instant read meat thermometer to ensure thorough cooking. Ground beef should be cooked until a thermometer inserted into several parts of the patty, including the thickest part, reads at least 160º F. Persons who cook ground beef without using a thermometer can decrease their risk of illness by not eating ground beef patties that are still pink in the middle. If you are served an undercooked hamburger or other ground beef product in a restaurant, send it back for further cooking.[2]


Avoid spreading harmful bacteria in your kitchen. Keep raw meat separate from ready-to-eat foods. Wash hands, counters, and utensils with hot soapy water after they touch raw meat. Never place cooked hamburgers or ground beef on the unwashed plate that held raw patties.


Wash meat thermometers in between tests of patties that require further cooking.



2. Drink only pasteurized milk, juice, or cider.



Commercial juice with an extended shelf life that is sold at room temperature (e.g. juice in cardboard boxes, vacuum-sealed juice in glass containers) has been pasteurized, although this is generally not indicated on the label. Most juice concentrates are also heated sufficiently to kill pathogens.




To be succinct the solution is to,

Cook your Food!


How long ago did the Human Race discover that little trick?

Sequence of stages in control: fire for warmth vs. fire for cooking
taintOne thing we can say about the widespread use of fire probable by 125,000 years ago, however, is that it would almost certainly have included the use of fire for cooking.* Why can this be assumed? It has to do with the sequence for the progressive stages of control over fire that would have had to have taken place prior to fire usage becoming commonplace. And the most interesting of these is that fire for cooking would almost inevitably have been one of the first uses it was put to by humans, rather than some later-stage use.*

The first fires on earth occurred approximately 350 million years ago--the geological evidence for fire in remains of forest vegetation being as old as the forests themselves.[110] It is usual to focus only on fire's immediately destructive effects to plants and wildlife, but there are also benefits. In response to occasional periodic wildfires, for example, certain plants and trees have evolved known as "pyrophytes," for whose existence periodic wildfires are essential. Fire revitalizes them by destroying their parasites and competitors, and such plants include grasses eaten by herbivores as well as trees that provide shelter and food for animals.[111]

Opportunistic exploitation of animal kills by predators after wildfires. Fires also provide other unintended benefits to animals as well. Even at the time a wildfire is still burning, birds of prey (such as falcons and kites)--the first types of predators to appear at fires--are attracted to the flames to hunt fleeing animals and insects. Later, land-animal predators appear when the ashes are smoldering and dying out to pick out the burnt victims for consumption. Others, such as deer and bovine animals appear after that to lick the ashes for their salt content. Notable as well is that most mammals appear to enjoy the heat radiated at night at sites of recently burned-out fires.[112]

It would have been inconceivable, therefore, that human beings, being similarly observant and opportunistic creatures, would not also have partaken of the dietary windfall provided by wildfires they came across. And thus, even before humans had learned to control fire purposefully--and without here getting into the later stages of control over fire--their early passive exposures to it would have already introduced them, like the other animals, to the role fire could play in obtaining edible food and providing warmth



A case can even be made that we have evolved to require cooked food.

What do common genetic rates of change suggest about potential adaptation to cooking?
We have gone a little far afield here getting some kind of grasp on rates of genetic change, but I think it's been necessary for us to have a good sense of the time ranges involved. So to bring this back around to the question of adaptation to cooking, it should probably be clear by this point that given the time span involved (likely 125,000 years since fire and cooking became widespread), the chances are very high that we are in fact adapted to the cooking of whatever foods were consistently cooked.* I would include in these some of the vegetable foods, particularly the coarser ones such as starchy root vegetables such as yams, which are long thought to have been cooked,[131] and perhaps others, as well as meat, from what we know about the fossil record.

Do We Really Have A Dog In This Hunt?
Update: Since this topic has reared it's ugly head I am bumping this post from Aug 22, 2006 up.

One question that might occur to some will be, can we expect China, Russia and the EU to react differently to this latest news from North Korea than they have concerning Iran?

Will they drag their feet and support nothing besides deadline after deadline, and stall on any real actions, like Sanctions?

One answer could be, what does North Korea have that they want? Iran has vast Petroleum reserves to dangle as bait, but Kim Jung Il has nothing but instability to offer.

As I noted in my last post.

China says it 'resolutely opposes' North Korean nuclear tests, appeals for return to talks

Oh and as Stratfor.com has mentioned

Beijing has deployed
additional troops to the border, but that is to seal the frontier


That does not mean they are going to invade it may very well be true it only means,
its primary concern is to keep the North Korean people
from spilling across the border into northeast China.



But there is an Old Chinese Proverb which says

When the Dragon belches all Frogs Fart


I do believe Pekiing just belched.




North Korea seems to be popping in and out of the News these days. Of course the proliferation of nuclear arms is a concern for the United States.

We do not want them to get into the hands of terrorists, but as for a threat by North Korea?

Take a look at this map.

I can see how North Korea, would be a concern, for The People's Republic of China, The Russian Federation, South Korea, Japan, and even Taiwan, but I can only see a small tip of Alaska and if the North Koreans hit there, they would have to deal with Green Peace. ;-)

So I am FLAT against any UNILATERAL talks as a matter of fact I wonder what would happen if we decided this was a Regional Problem and in the purview of the Fist Rank Nations bordering North Korea.

Just tell North Korea, South Korea, China, Russia and Japan this was their problem and we would lend our good services in support of whatever agreement they could come to.

It has been over 50 years since the combat with North Korea, and that was really a surrogate war with the Soviet Union.

We happen to have won that conflict, not the Battle of Korea but the Prolonged Conflict between Marxism and Capitalism.

North Korea has nothing we need, or want but they certainly would like the US to pay them off to play nice.

Maybe we should stop playing their game.

Additional Notes: There has been talk of a Democratic Victory this Fall large enough to give that Party control of at least the House. Should that occur, Nacy Pelosi,might end up as Speaker of the House and thereby third in succession to the Presidency. Shall we take a lot at one of her policies as regards Natitonal Security?

"The United States does not need a multi-billion-dollar national missile defense against the possibility of a nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile.


Really?


"What we need is a strong nonproliferation policy with other nations to combat the most serious threat to our national security and to the safety of the world ? weapons of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorists who would smuggle them into our cities.


Which seems to be working SO well


Can you say Pre 9/11 thinking?
