It’s for the elections, Dummy

President Obama’s administration’s constant reassurances to the American people starting last month is starting to look a lot like what I suspected they would be – a ploy.  A ploy for the Obama admnistration to show that it “has leadership qualities”.  But I was right when I said if there would be a terrorist attack before the November elections, just call me the prophet.  And this was pretty damn close…well, we still have until Tuesday.

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” wrote Shapiro, adding, “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

UPDATE: As this contrived scare unravels, Obama has given a press conference reversing earlier announcements that there were no explosives in the packages found on the planes. Obama claimed that the packages “did apparently contain explosive material,” completely contradicting earlier reports which quoted authorities as saying that both the package found in the UK and the two found in the U.S. were all duds and contained no explosive material.

A few hours ago CNN reported, “Investigators examined two UPS planes that landed at Philadelphia International Airport and another at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, said Mike Mangeot, a UPS spokesman. Authorities later gave the “all-clear” at the airport in Newark, U.S. and U.K. officials said,” and yet now CNN is running with the headline, Suspicious packages ‘contain explosive material,’ Obama says. This stinks to high heaven. Obama is directly contradicting the announcements of his own federal security apparatus.

Obama also said that the events were a scare tactic designed to shake up Americans before the elections. On this point he’s correct, but all the evidence points to his White House being behind the scare. Obama was informed last night of the events as the packages were discovered and even after it was known that the UK package contained no explosive material, he issued a full security alert anyway.

As we predicted on four separate occasions would happen, the Obama White House has deliberately contrived a fake terror scare on the eve of the mid-term elections in an effort to subdue the rampaging political appetite for anti-big government candidates that threatens to sweep aside establishment incumbents next week.

Despite the fact that the so-called suspicious package discovered on a flight in the United Kingdom tested negative for any explosive material, President Obama, after being informed of the apparent “threat” yesterday, “directed U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security” to launch a full-scale security alert, according to a White House press release, which in turn was helpfully elevated to levels of hysteria by the corporate media today.

The scaremongering was focused around two UPS planes that landed at Philadelphia International Airport and another at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, but just like the incident in the UK, both were soon given the “all clear,” reports CNN, and no bombs were found.

Despite the fact that no explosives at all were found on any of the planes, the establishment media is still feverishly running with the story that this was a “mail bomb” plot targeting the United States and that it was run out of Yemen, which coincidentally is also the US Military-Industrial Complex’s number one target for attack.

Quite how a “mail bomb plot” can succeed without any actual bombs is something the hysterical press has failed to properly explain. Like every other single major terror scare targeting the United States that we have covered, this smacks of an engineered political ploy.

As the video at the top of this article highlights, the terror scare also arrives just days after British Airways Chairman Martin Broughton attacked US authorities for the continuation of “completely redundant” airport security checks. It also comes amidst an increasing backlash against naked body scanners.

Just as former Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge admitted that fake terror alerts were issued by the Bush administration for political gain, Obama is taking a leaf out of the Neo-Con’s playbook – and his timing couldn’t be better – just four days before the mid-term elections on Super Tuesday.

Over the last few months, on four separate occasions, we warned that the Obama White House would pull a terror stunt on the eve of the election in an effort to corral an increasingly resentful and angry electorate into acquiescence. As we reported back in July, former Clinton advisor Robert Shapiro wrote that Obama was relying on an October surprise in the form of a terror scare to rescue his presidency.

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” wrote Shapiro, adding, “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

 Last month we reported on how the Obama administration’s threat that a “small scale terror attack” was on the cards was just another political ploy to instill fear within Americans. In another subsequent article we again highlighted the probability of the government contriving a terror scare for political grist.

We repeated our warning about Obama seeking to exploit terror earlier this month in the aftermath of the supposed airport lobby bombing plot, which again turned out to be nothing but hot air.

We’d be loathe to forget that the media and the government have been totally discredited over and over again by their complicity in issuing phony terror alerts designed to manipulate elections and frighten the public into slavish obedience, accepting naked body scanners, an intensification of the police state and any other indignity in the name of the government protecting them from terrorists like Christmas Day bomber Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was allowed to board the airliner he tried to attack by order of the US State Department.

Within hours of this new terror scare breaking every indication, most notably the fact that Obama was informed last night and decided to go ahead with a full security alert despite the UK package being a dud, screams out that this is a contrived political stunt designed to sway the many key undecided voters in anticipation of next week’s mid-terms.


Incompetent nature of Bush continues – 22 million missing emails found

The incompetent nature of the Bush administration even after the fact continues to boggle the mind and confound the understanding.  Due to the failure of the Bush White House to install an electronic record keeping system technicians have recovered some 22 million lost emails. 

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the National Security archive filed a lawsuit against the Executive Office of the President in 2007.  The earliest timetable for the public to view any of the emails will not be until 2014.  It comes as no surprise of that since some of the records that the American people have more than a right to see are kept secret – sometimes under the excuse of national security.

It should be an interesting thing to point out that since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, only four videos of the Pentagon impact have been released, and none of them show an American Airlines jet penetrating the building.

Former White House spokesman Scott Stanzel has said that any misleading leading statements are “a continued anti-Bush agenda, nearly a year after a new president was sworn in.”  Misleading?  I believe that it was the Bush administration that made a lot of misleading statements.  Where are the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?  Oh, yeah, they were moved before we got there.  Stanzel said in a statement:

The liberal groups CREW and National Security Archive litigated for sport, distort the facts and have consistently tried to create a spooky conspiracy out of standard IT issues.

Am I the only one getting tired of the liberal/conservative labeling going on in this country?  Anne Weisman, chief counsel for CREW said the emails “would never have been found but for our lawsuits and pressure from Capitol Hill.”  She further added:

It was only then that they did this reanalysis and found as a result that there were 22 million e-mails that they were unable to account for before.

I couldn’t agree more.  Secrecy was the Bush administration’s M.O.  According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) this is just another example of the dismissive nature of the Bush White House.  He added:

It was another example of the Bush administration’s reflexive resistance to congressional oversight and the public’s right to know.

Wow!  Finally, someone besides Ron Paul stands for the right of the people to know.  That’s something Bush didn’t support. Meredith Fuchs, general counsel to the National Security Archive said:

Many poor choices were made during the Bush administration and there was little concern about the availability of e-mail records despite the fact that they were contending with regular subpoenas for records and had a legal obligation to preserve their records.

Melanie Sloan, CREWS executive director added:

We may never discover the full story of what happened here.  It seems like they just didn’t want the e-mails preserved.  This gives us confirmation that the Bush administration lied when they said no e-mails were missing.

Wait a minute – lied?  But Mr. Bush, isn’t lying a sin against God and Jesus Christ, the very same God you claim to worship?  Representatives from both groups say that the data was mislabeled and effectively lost.

Anyone who was a Bush-lover or continues to be should wake up and smell the trickery.  Your knight in shining armor wasn’t a knight in shining armor afterall.  Bush has been exposed to be an enemy of the people, the Constitution, and has seriously damaged this nations moral compass. 

If you were a nurse in a hospital and you mislabeled and lost valuable material, you would be wrote-up or fired.  Any attempt to dismiss this as “human error” is just another excuse to eliminate room for debate and cover-up the truth.
