Have you ever seen a UFO? Millions of us have, credible reports have been made by hundreds and thousands and even the Apollo 11 astronauts reported sightings of strange phenomenon. But what does the government say? Nonsense! No such thing, never was never will be; yet the sightings continue. Unexplainable events, which cause the government’s explanation of, no such thing to fall to pieces. Travis Walton’s disappearance for five days after his coworkers reported his abduction is case in point.

Betty and Barney Hill reported being abducted and that the aliens showed her a star map of where they claimed to be from. Skeptic’s claimed there was no such constellation but several years later it was found and only visible from the Southern Hemisphere of earth. But before I go too much further, I ask not do you believe in UFO’s but why do you believe the way that you do?

Is it a faith-based belief? Or a science belief or a perhaps a personal belief based on experiences or is it a comfort belief. I have known those who refuse to accept the possibility of UFO’s because it is an uncomfortable belief. Like reading ghost stories alone late at night they are far more comfortable to read in daylight even if you don’t believe in ghosts. It plays on our fight or flight reflex to be attacked by the unknown and to be unable to judge fight or flight because of the hiddeness of the adversary and our powerlessness to stop them.

As humankind has reached out into space it has become easier to believe that there might be other societies more advanced than our own doing the same. Yet our government insists it is not so, reams of evidence even from their own astronauts yet adamantly they contend it is not so. Many will believe on that alone, just because the government says so, evidence be hanged the government says it’s not so and that is all they need to hear.

So do you believe in Al Queda? Have you ever seen one? Do you know anyone who has ever seen one? Do you know anyone who has seen a UFO? Before September 11,2001 There probably weren’t a thousand people outside the government who had ever heard of Al Queda. The CIA estimated 3000 members worldwide including bookkeepers and bottle washers. There are more than 10,000 UFO sightings worldwide every year yet the majority of the population and the government denies their existence.

My point is this, why do you believe that there is such an organization as Al Queda? Why is this belief so prevalent that all candidates from all the parties now vow to fight Al Queda yet none can produce any evidence of their existence. If a candidate were to announce in a campaign speech that he would spare no expense to fight off UFO’s he would be laughed from the podium. Yet there is far more independent evidence of UFO’s than there is independent evidence of Al Queda.

The government and the media proclaim that one exists and is a clear and present danger while insisting that the other is silliness for nut cases and tin foil hats, blithely ignoring any evidence to the contrary. Every major power in the world has investigated UFO’s and on some level taken them quite seriously. The paranoid Soviet regime declared them a threat so much that fighter aircraft were launched in response. In one case a Soviet fighter fired on an unidentified craft and the craft returned fire knocking the Soviet plane from the sky.

Today a more pragmatic Russian government is strangely quiet about Al Queda even though they have there own problem with Muslim extremists. The Muslim’s fighting the war in Chechnya have committed as many or more acts of terrorism than we have seen in the west. Yet the Russian government refers to them as Chechen rebels or Muslim extremists rather than the western nom de plume of Al Queda, Are they not connected? Or have the Russians just missed the buzzword boat?

All evidence of Al Queda’s existence comes from the government the President said the name of Al Queda 95 times in his last speech. We know that Al Queda knocked down the twin towers because the government assured us it was so. Just as they assured us that Spanish terrorists blew up the battleship Maine and North Vietnamese patrol boats attacked us in the Gulf of Tonkin and Saddam was a supporter of Al Queda.

The government refuses to answer any questions about the Mossad agents arrested after cheering the attack on 9-11 or the inexplicable behavior of the Air Force on that day or even why air traffic controllers in the Pittsburgh were ordered to evacuate their tower. The government and the media insist that the conspiracy theories are silliness, a realm for nut cases and tin foil hats, blithely ignoring any evidence to the contrary.

During Stalinist times the Soviets sent thousands to the gulags on the charge of “wrecking.” If your tractor wouldn’t start or your factory machine broke maybe it was on purpose, maybe you were a wrecker! After Chairman Mao’s death in China failure’s were blamed on “The gang of four” the ruling hunta that followed Mao. Even in our own country during the red scare, people’s careers were ruined on the charge of being a communist subversive.

Governments have and governments will always declare who are our friends as well as our enemies, but it all begins to swirl into a blur and I begin to hear Big Brothers voice on the monitor. Musharif is our best friend in the region but if Musharif doesn’t do as we ask he is our enemy. The Saudi’s are our friends and we will arm them but if unnamed persons do not stop funding and arming foreign fighters in Iraq there will be consequences. The Iraqi government is a sovereign government, Iraq must meet our benchmarks, we will stand down when the Iraqi’s stand up, so I’m calling today for a troop surge.

Is there an Al Queda outside of the three thousand the CIA identified in 2001? I don’t know, I guess it depends on who you ask. If you ask the administration they will tell you our almost 4000 dead and 30,000 wounded have barely scratched the surface. They estimate the cost climbing to one trillion dollars, a figure higher than the average calculators can reach but we must because they’re every where. And we must fight them or the UFO’s I mean the communist wreckers in the gang of four who are intent on conquering us and violating our vital fluids will win.

I guess it all depends on what you want to believe, years ago I saw something totally unexplainable in the sky but I knew that my government was totally uninterested. Then years later I saw something unexplainable and yet the government fully explained it sort of, provided you didn’t ask too many questions they explained it. It ‘s the Peter Pan principle; you just gotta believe Tink!

You Just Gotta Believe Tink!
Saturday August 4 - 09:55 - Posted by 33f734f2512b4472...

How much control did Marvin Bush (the president's youngest brother) have in the electronic security decisions involving the World Trade Center, and Dulles Airport? Why hasn't his connection been investigated, considering the apparent security failures in 2 of his security company's contracts on the same day? What about his connection to the company providing the insurance for the WTC ? Did The WTC contract really end on September 11, 2001? The presence of molten metal found burning at ground zero for up to a month after the attacks, suggest the use of explosives and of Thermite. Why wasn't this investigated? Why did WTC building 7 collapse into its own footprint even though it wasn't hit by any planes? Why was molten metal found under it also, just like WTC 1 and 2?!

After the attacks, Bin Laden denied any involvement through credible sources numerous times. However, a video tape found in Afghanistan by an unnamed source and released by the Pentagon was the only evidence against him. Why would Bin Laden confess on a video tape after stating so clearly that he was not involved, and why does the person in that video look so different from all previous pictures of Bin Laden?

It is physically impossible for the WTC towers to have fallen so quickly (just over the speed of free fall in a vacuum), with no frictional resistance, without the bottom floors instantly and simultaneously giving out. So why wasn’t the possibility of a controlled demolition investigated?

Why did the FBI start collecting metal scraps immediately after the crash at the Pentagon instead of conducting an onsite forensic investigation? Considering the controversy surrounding what exactly hit the Pentagon, why hasn’t any of the wreckage, or any of the 85 confiscated local surveillance tapes been released to prove it was a Boeing 757 (AA flight 77)?

Websites proving 911 is a hoax!


Please check out ’Scholars For 911 Truth’ http://scholarsfor911truth.org/ or http://st911.org if you wish to be informed about what really happen on Sept. 11, 2001. This website is spear headed by some of the most intellectual scholars in the United States, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the atrocities perpetrated on the world on 9/11 was indeed an inside job.

"Understanding the full truth of 9/11 seems to require two separate awakenings.
The first, awakening to the fraudulence of the "official 9/11 story," is a pretty simple brain function and only requires a little study, logic or curiosity. We can help a lot with that part here and it’s a major purpose of this site.


The second step, however, consciously confronting the implications of that knowledge—and what it says about our media, politics and economic system today—is by far the harder awakening and requires an enormous exercise of nerve and heart. (As the Chinese say, "You cannot wake up a man who is pretending to sleep.") In other words, this part of the journey depends more on character than on maps and evidence so we can’t help you much here, except to point out inspiring heroes and heroines who have courageously faced that truth, spoken out, and survived. (Though we might also point out the intriguing fact that our 9/11 heroines now outnumber 9/11 heroes by about six to one.)"

http://911truth.org/article.php?story=20050204132153814#2step

Do the research, watch the videos, read the websites and forums, find the truth and expose it to as many people as possible and join in a united effort to save humanity from these evil doers before it’s too late and all of our liberties are gone forever. This issue does not involve just the United States, it involves everyone on this planet.

Dr. Strangelove Rides Again: Nuclear Power Permeates Bush’s 2006 DOE Budget Amidst record budget deficits and proposed deep funding cuts to schools, low income housing, veterans’ health benefits, the Environmental Protection Agency, and numerous other domestic social programs, the Bush Administration has found even more money for the 'Nuclear Power Relapse' than in the past...The Bush Administration proposes to spend $4 million on research into the controversial 'bunker buster' nuclear weapon, an initiative blocked by bipartisan opposition in both houses of Congress last year. It also proposes increasing funding towards preparing the Nevada Test Site so that full-scale nuclear weapons blasts could begin in as little as 18 months. While 'advancing' the nuclear arsenal, Bush’s DOE proposes to decrease funding to 'Environmental Management' (clean up at nuclear weapons complex sites contaminated during the Cold War) by nearly 8%, a loss of nearly $550 million...Click here to see the Report!

Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting.

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
