The View From
Focus at Etemenanki
projecting forward the 2-year cycle pattern first discussed in The
Message of Cycle 23 (May '02), followed by the Endgame
IV, V), we have determined that summer/fall
of 2003 is to be considered an 'echo window' of 9/11 ('01).
2. The same
'window' has also been dubbed the 'stargate window' (described as such
here since Feb. 18). In the Endgame series
IV and V), we have detected various themes attached
to the window. The major ones are: 'stargate', virus, 'false gift', Osirian/Messianic resurrection, nuclear event,
Mars/Cydonia, sun, Nazis, 'New World Order', the 2002
'alien disk' crop glyph, 'Babylon leader falling' (e.g. Bush,
Blair, Sharon, Pope, etc.), and such.
recent 'Blackout 2003' and Shwarzenegger/California recall election
are being considered very much part of the 'stargate'/'echo' scheme.
Arnold Shwarzenegger has been quickly identified here at Etemenanki
(as early as Aug.
20) as a figure playing the role of an 'Antichrist' or 'false
messiah'. Also the latest development considered very relevant is the 'Wilsongate' matter (CIA leak) threatening to bring down
the White House (for this see Endgame
V and The
West Wing Cipher).
The highly symbolic,
dark, and multi-leveled situation presently developing are being
closely monitored and analyzed in the update/log section below (from
the Aug. 6 entry).
'03 'The West Wing Cipher'
something different... sort of: The West Wing
Cipher. I wanted to do this for some time and I thought now is
the right time to do it. Interesting that I somehow talk a lot about
films and TV shows lately... It's just something that came out without
any conscious planning. It's actually almost as if Hollywood and
reality are becoming one and the same. :)

it was the Antichrist theme. And now, during this 'stargate window'
presently active, there is a theme of Lucifer
emerging to make the 'message' clearer.
Since the 'stargate window'
Sept. '03 is an 'echo window' of '9/11' (2001), we have
the masterpiece film/book, 2001: A Space Odyssey, as
potentially being part of the echo. The same window is
also considered a 'Mars window' due to its historic close encounter
with Earth on Aug. 27 this year. And orbiting Mars at the present time is none other
than NASA's Odyssey spacecraft (launched in 2001) named after the
The mystery that drives the story
of '2001' is the black 'monolith', first discovered by man on the Moon.
lighting in the scene is so decidedly red, however, that we are subtly
guided to associate the site with Mars rather than the Moon. (See
picture.) This interpretation is certainly encouraged by the existence
of Odyssey orbiting Mars. In any case the monolith discovery
prompts a space mission to Jupiter (an
attempt to make 'first contact'), which takes place - as clearly indicated
in the film - 18 months later.
This has had a direct 'echo'.
of the Iraq war came 18 months after the biggest '2001' event -
And as discussed in my Endgame articles Iraq represents the
'land of Mars' in many ways. Correspondingly, March 20 - the beginning of the war - coincided with the spring
equinox, which is a 'Mars/war day'. I wrote this just before
the war on March 18:
The Great Sphinx at Giza is a
representation of Mars (as can be inferred from the tradition of
ancient Egypt) as well as Horus who in turn personifies the rising
sun. And because the Sphinx faces due east, it becomes perfectly
aligned with its celestial counterpart - the rising sun - on the
equinoxes, when the sun rises due east. As per the Sphinx-Mars
equation, then, the equinoxes are also to be considered important Mars
days. March 20, '03... is
therefore... a fitting date to be incorporated into the US war on
terrorism...; indeed, as Mars is traditionally the planet/god of war,
March 20 is in effect a 'war day'.
As explained in Endgame
IV, Iraq/Babylon can also be considered a 'stargate land' (the name
'Babylon' denotes 'gate of the god', for example). And this too echoes
the movie 2001 in that its ending sequence involves 'Bowman' making contact with
floating near Jupiter, which, functioning as a sort of 'stargate',
takes Bowman into another 'dimension' where he becomes the first 'Star
But what about the 'stargate
window' active right now? We are now only a day away
from the autumn equinox (Sept. 23), which is another 'Mars/war day'
for obvious reasons. And the pattern tells us that is should yield
some compatible '2001 echoes'.
Amazingly enough, we are
indeed seeing just such 'echoes' emerging at this time.
First, just today or yesterday (9/21
or 9/22, depending on where you were) there was a big event
involving Jupiter, the place of the movie's monolith-stargate. For some
reason, NASA happened to pick this day immediately preceding the second
'equinox/Mars/stargate day' of 2003 to deliberately crash
the Galileo spacecraft into the giant gaseous planet. (Note:
Sept. 11 + 11 = 9/22.)
The symbolism of this NASA
'ritual' is very thick. For one thing, it relates not only to 2001:
A Space Odyssey but also to its sequel 2010: The Year We Make
Contact (or 'Odyssey Two') in which Jupiter, with the help
of the monolith, becomes a sun - called Lucifer. And in real
just happened that the Galileo probe, named after the renowned
astronomer Galileo Galilei famous for correctly pointing out that the
planets revolve around the sun (i.e. heliocentric view), was
carrying some plutonium. And because of this there was a lot of
on the Internet regarding the possibility of the plutonium initiating
a nuclear reaction and turning Jupiter into - yes - the second sun of
the solar system.
(The involvement of nuclear
material here is fitting in that nukes have been closely
associated with the 'stargate window' [see the Endgame series].
The storyline of the book/film 2010 even involves the Earth
being on the brink of nuclear war.)
What's more, the
'second sun' is a theme I had already attached to 9/11. (See The
Message of Cycle 23.) In conjunction with
Nostradamus' infamous Quatrain X-72 (i.e. the '1999'/'king of terror'
prophecy), I pointed out that the 'Sirian' Quatrain II-42 mentioning
the appearance of 'two suns' was likely pertinent to the 2-year cycle
pattern which is behind all the 'echo' effects. (Two years, after all, is analogous
to 'two suns', or two solar revolutions.)
The great star will burn for
The cloud will make two suns appear:
The large mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff changes his abode.
Notice Line 4 of II-41 referring
to changing of the papacy. This meshes well with our 'Babylon
leader falling' theme attached to the 'stargate window'. As discussed
before, the 'Babylon leader' also corresponds to people like Bush, Blair, and Sharon.
And it should be noted that St. Malachy's
of popes from centuries ago calls the
current pope, John Paul II, 'De
Labore Solis' ('From the Labor of the Sun'), thus conforming to the
'sun' theme. (The Latin motto can also
denote 'Of the
Eclipse of the Sun', which cannot be more fitting since John Paul II was indeed born during an
Now, it is certainly an ominous sign
for the Roman Church that the sun-related Galileo spacecraft carrying
plutonium ('Pluto' signifying death) was thrown into Jupiter (= Zeus),
the chief god of the Romans. But perhaps this symbolism is more
applicable to the 'American pope' (see The
Two Suns), George W. Bush who was identified
V as a form of Phaëthon, the son of the sun-god Helios, who
was out of control and struck down by the thunderbolt
of... Jupiter/Zues. And Phaethon is even a Promethean figure
comparable to Lucifer (thus also the ignited Jupiter in 2010).
The coincidences just keep on
mounting. On the 'Mars/stargate/2001' day that is the autumn equinox
(Sept. 23), Bush is scheduled to address the United Nations and ask
for international help on Iraq - making official the administration's
decision to shift its war policy. This will be the second geopolitical
'stargate/monolith event' - the first being the beginning of the Iraq
war on the spring equinox, '18 months' after Sept. 2001.
And this event will take inside the 'monolith'.
Yes - just look at the pictures
below: the monolith from 2001 on the left, and the UN headquarters
building (in NYC) on the right. I don't
know about you, but I'd say the resemblance is uncanny...
Bush changing his approach to
Iraq is undoubtedly a important event. And his going to the UN
the end of the neoconservative war plan, championed by arrogant and
corrupt people like Cheney, Rumself, and Wolfowitz. Those neo-cons'
dream of creating a 'Pax Americana' empire is now seemingly coming to
'Pax Americana' means 'American
peace'. And here is what I wrote in Endgame
...the world-changing events of 9/11 were
preceded by the fiery descent of the Russian space station Mir
in March. 'Mir' means 'peace', as well as 'world'. The
decommissioning of Mir thus symbolically signaled the 'end of
world peace' - which was of course dramatically actualized later in
the same year.
was 'world peace', Columbia [the space shuttle that crashed
in a similar fashion in early 2003] would stand for 'American peace',
after all Columbia is another name for the United States.
And further in Endgame
'American peace' is exactly what is meant by 'Pax Americana' - the
US global domination envisioned by the neo-conservatives... The
invasion of Iraq was the first major step toward achieving the Pax
Americana. So the symbolic implication of the space-shuttle omen
would be that the Bush administration's global ambition will lead to
a major disaster [just as the fall of Mir was followed months
later by the disaster of 9/11]. This... is likely relevant to the
coming 'stargate window'.
Indeed, we are presently
witnessing the near-total collapse of the neoconservative war scheme,
climaxing right now as Bush goes to the UN to more or less announce
he's ditching the Pax Americana plan.
The key question now is: Will
the neo-cons go out quietly or will they do whatever it takes to
survive? And they are crazy enough to do just about anything...
(Will they try preemptively 'dumping' Bush? Will they create another
Well, that's it for now. A lot
of developments taking place, so stay tuned.

Birth of Darkness
looks like I will definitely have to write Endgame VI now. I've
been doing a lot of research the past two week or so (thus the
slowed-down updates here) and, well... if you thought the Endgame series
so far was wild... :) I'm finding things that are so dark and
almost 'too much'.
In the meantime, let me
comment some more on the 'stargate window' situation. We're currently right in
the middle of it and it is still the 'Total Recall' (election)/'Total
Blackout' situation that represents the most interesting earthly
development for the window. And my view continues to be that its
underlying theme is the 'Rise of the Antichrist'.
While the 'Antichrist' was not a
big subject in the Endgame series (I-V), it actually directly
corresponds to the 'Osirian resurrection', i.e. the most prominent
Endgame theme attached to the 'stargate window'. (See Endgame IV
First, Osiris/Horus is often compared to Jesus
(a 'version' of
Osiris). And as I noted in the Aug. 26 entry: "The
'Messiah' can be quite easily interpreted as the 'Antichrist', since the
distinction can be quite blurry depending on the context."
Because the resurrection of Osiris also traditionally entails the birth
of his son Horus (considered a reincarnated Osiris), it was actually
easy to infer that the 'stargate window' might have something to do
with the birth of a 'messianic' figure - symbolically fulfilled by the
'rise of Shwarzenegger', the Terminator/Destroyer (a biblical epithet
of the Antichrist).
As discussed before, the big
announcement of Arnie (making public his decision to run for governor
of California) on Aug. 6 could not be symbolically more meaningful.
For one thing, Aug. 6 is the day of the Sirius heliacal rising (as
seen from Giza) which for the ancient Egyptians signaled the coming
Nile inundation and signified the birth of Horus.
And what made this year's
celestial 'birth of Horus' event particularly special was the fact
that the August of 2003 was the month of Mars, as Mars came
closer to the earth than any other time in recorded history. Mars, to
the ancient Egyptians, was also Horus (called 'Horus the Red')!
As if this weren't enough, there was an amazing celestial alignment on
Aug. 23, just 4 days before Mars' closest approach to Earth, involving
the Sun, Regulus, Jupiter, Venus, Earth, and Mars. It turns out that
the Sun-Regulus conjunction - 'Regulus day' - was also traditionally
considered to mark the birth of Horus. So with the grand extra
planetary alignment, this year's 'Regulus day' in August was extra
special. And it really was - as it did herald the 'birth' (or historic
climax) of Mars, i.e. 'Horus the Red', just days later on
The message was clear: Horus, or
a messianic figure, was born. And somehow - as strange as it sounds -
it corresponds to the 'rise of Arnold Shwarzenegger'.
And all the clues suggest that he is to be seen (at least
symbolically) as an Antichristic
figure, i.e. the figure called in the Book of Revelation the
'Destroyer' or Terminator (which Arnie is, via the movies by
the same name). 'Coincidentally', Terminator 3: Rise of the
Machines was playing in theaters this very summer.
What's more, another popular
film Arnie did is Total Recall. Now, this association was
actually the reason why I was already watching him closely even before
he made the big announcement on Aug. 6. I mean, it was hard not to
notice the link between the name 'Total Recall', the California recall
election, and the timing involving Mars. And of course, Total Recall is a movie all
Next, here is something I've
been meaning to mention (I had some conversations going on this
subject behind the scenes). As many people know, in the early days
Shwarzenegger was viewed as a new Sylvester Stallone (Rocky,
Rambo, etc.). And we happen to find in one of Stallone's movies a
curious reference to Arnie. This (pretty bad) film is called Demolition
Man - which is obviously a variation on the Antichristic name 'Destroyer'/'Terminator'.
So this is another corroborative clue.
But what's really intriguing
here is the nature of the fictitious conversation in which Shwarzenegger
is mentioned. One of the characters played Sandra Bullock tells
Stallone (or his character) that Arnold had become a US president
(the story takes place in the year 2026):
"Hold it! The Schwarzenegger Library?"
Bullock: "Yes, the Schwarzenegger Presidential Library. Wasn't
he an actor?"
Stallone: "Stop! He was President?"
Bullock: "Yes. Even though he was not born in this country, his
popularity at the time caused the 61st Amendment…"
Oh, and the whole story of Demolition
Man takes place in Los Angeles (i.e. California), which in
the movie has become a police state ruled by a fascist ruler! I
don't know about you but I find this pretty worrisome - especially
given Arnie's Nazi connections and the fascist elite crowd backing him
in the Total Recall election now underway in California.
Arnold's emerging 'acting' role as an
Antichristic figure is also something hinted at by the planetary
positioning of Mars (= Horus = 'Messiah') that brought the amazing
close encounter in August. It was a configuration known as 'opposition',
where Mars was 180 degrees away from the Sun as seen from Earth. So
what we had was 'Mars opposition' - which then can be interpreted as
'Messiah opposition', or 'anti-Messiah', or... 'Antichrist'.
I'm not sure if it will succeed,
but I'm quite certain that the NWO 'plan' is to get Arnie elected as
governor of California, and the elite group will do its best (or
worst) to make that happen. Should be interesting to watch.
And finally, let me point out
that in the 'fifth revision' of the Total Recall screenplay
I came across on the net (which I presume is geniune) is found a
storyline quite different from that of the movie. In this earlier
version, the main theme was actually something called the 'Sphinx
Project' involving a Martian Sphinx. This is clear even from the
ANGLE, and, in the distance, on the horizon of the arid landscape is
a huge SPHINX-LIKE STRUCTURE. (It is reminiscent of the
Egyptian sphinx, but both body and face, though gargoyle-like, are
different in design.) There are some large pyramids not far
from the sphinx. CAMERA MOVES optically FORWARD. DISSOLVE.
much closer to the sphinx and is directly in front. It moves
(combination of zoom and optical printer move) towards the eyes,
which appear to be red gems.
APPROACHES one of the eyes, it appears to be stained red glass, as
in a temple. Suddenly there is a terrific explosion and the glass
shatters into millions of fragments which hurtle toward the
And here are some key
conversations that reveal what the 'Sphinx Project' is all about:
The Sphinx... it's not some useless artifact, it's a machine built by
some alien race eighteen millions years ago. The same race that built

fusion generators... [...] To combine elements in the Martian core

(baffled) So why is Cohaagen shipping everyone out?
you see?! From being a pile of red dirt with minerals, Mars is going
to change into a chunk of priceless real estate.
Cohaagen's going to own it all!
It's actually pretty clear that
the story was originally meant to be about the mythical 'Hall of
Records' often thought to be located under or near the Great Sphinx.
Those who have read Endgame IV will recall that I talked quite a lot about the 'Hall of Records' (or 'Tomb of Osiris') in
conjunction with Mars. I even suggested that the 'secret chamber' is
actually under/near the 'Martian Sphinx' that is the 'Face on Mars'.
Here is a direct quote from Endgame
IV (May 19):
a transposed context, we may have already detected the first sign of
the so-called 'Hall of Records'... under the Martian Sphinx!
And of course I had linked this
to the 'stargate window' (summer/fall 2003), which turned out to be the time of the
'Total Recall' California election.
Let me also mention that I concluded

|September 9, '03
on Sunday was a sort of 'non-admission admission' that his
administration - guided by the neo-conservative ideology - screwed up
big time in Iraq. As David Corn of The Nation wrote:
Bush is in a fix. He's stuck
in his Iraqmire. He did not prepare the country for a long drawn-out
endeavor in Iraq, which keeps on claiming the lives of Americans. In
fact, before the war, some Bush aides claimed that this would be a
no-fuss occupation. Now Bush has little choice but to resort to the
usual rah-rah about resolve. He points fingers at the international
community and the Iraqis, failing, of course, to acknowledge his own
miscalculations. And he's looking a tad desperate.
Bush's inability to acknowledge
his own failure is nothing surprising. It's something we fully expect from
this self-serving administration. But at least Bush is now, probably
guided by Rove, moving away from the Pax Americana (PNAC) policy of
the neo-conservative chickenhawks (Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, etc.)
who simply hate the UN. Bush's decision to go to the UN for international
help clearly deviates from the neo-con plan of creating a global American
empire via the use of perpetual war, 'shock & awe' tactics, and
Since before the Iraq war, my
position has been that the whole situation will peak in some way
during the 'stargate window' around September (see for example the February
18 and March 29 entries). And now it does appear that we
are indeed facing a threshold, a turning point, at the present time.
Now it is clear to everyone, as evidenced by the Bush speech, that the
US is failing miserably in Iraq, the neo-cons have been wrong on
almost everything, and they have deceived all of us (additionally the
terrible economy is not improving).
But of course the biggest
pressure felt by Bush's guru Rove must be coming from the polls.
According to the latest Zogby poll,
'President George W. Bush's
job performance ratings have reached the lowest point since his
pre-Inauguration days... A
majority (52%) said it's time for someone new in the White House,
while just two in five (40%) said the president deserves to be
Other telling developments
include: the resignation
(Sept. 6) of the Palestinian Prime Minister, Mahmoud Abbas, whom the
US preferred over Arafat for the 'roadmap to peace'; Israel declaring
'all-out war' on Hamas (Sept. 1); and the former British environment minister
Michael Meacher becoming the first mainstream politician to endorse
(in his Sept. 6 Guardian article)
the view that the 'war on terrorism' is actually a PNAC/neocon-driven
attempt by the Bush administration to dominate the world (Pax
Meacher even suggested that 9-11
was allowed to take place in order for the arrogant neo-con plan to
move forward - just as Pearl Harbor was allowed to happen so that the
US could enter World War 2. And this again brings up the question: Are
we about to have another '9-11', now that the big shockwave that the
neo-cons exploited to realize their Pax Americana dream is pretty much
Using the phrase 'another 9-11'
inevitably brings to mind big explosions and Islamic terrorists, but
this imagery may be misleading. If the 'allowed to happen' scenario is
valid, the essence of 9-11 that may be 'echoed' during this
'stargate/echo window' would be a conspiracy by the neo-cons, or the 'Synarchist'/fascist
banker types behind them, to scare the US (and others) into submission
again. And this can be achieved in many different ways.
Whatever the case, the echo
effect would probably be something we could use to further discern the
true nature of 9-11 and surrounding events. And as always, it is
prudent to expect the unexpected.
In a way, though, the echo has
already been detected in the Blackout of August and the Total Recall
election underway in California (see previous updates). There is so
much to discuss regarding these events, but I'm holding back right now
as I am preparing to present new findings in future updates and/or Endgame
Another thing I want to mention
is that the critical decisions Bush is making right now (including the
recent speech) may be comparable to Neo, in the second Matrix
movie (2003), being forced to choose between two doors in the room of
the matrix creator:
[talking to Neo]:
"Which brings us at last to the moment of truth wherein the
fundamental flaw is ultimately expressed and the anomaly revealed as
both beginning and end. There are 2 doors. The door to your right
leads to the source and the salvation of Zion. The door to your left
leads back to the matrix to her [Trinity] and to the end of your
species, as you adequately put...the problem is choice..."
In this scene is shown flashes
of images of antichritic figures (Hitler etc.) including - amazingly
enough - George W. Bush himself. And this scene even comes right after
Trinity causing a big city blackout (discussed in previous
'Zion' mentioned above,
representing 'freedom', can also be easily interpreted as 'Babylon'
which relates to the US/NYC, UK/London, Israel/Jerusalem, etc. So the
transposed implication would be that the decision Bush/US is making
today decides the fate of 'Babylon' - i.e. annihilation or salvation.
In the film, Neo chooses the left door and goes back into the Matrix.
This choice entails the end of the human race, and as soon as Neo leaves
the room, the building explodes...
Not a pretty picture. :)
My interpretation is that the
right door leading to the 'source' would represent the true spirit of
the United States/freedom embodied by the US Constitution, and the
left door leading to the Matrix would signify the world of corporate
America, energy companies (recall that matrix = 'grid'), and such
personified in the Bush administration by Dick Cheney and the neocon
Note that Neo/Bush choosing the
left door is in agreement with my personal stance that the US is
currently in the process of 'ending'. The question for me now is how
it will end. I guess this depends largely on the decisions being made
now. I suppose by the time of the release of The Matrix:
Revolutions (Nov. 5, '03), the last installment of the series, the
path will have been determined, and we should be able to find within
the film hints of what's coming. Of course, from the title,
'Revolutions', we can already sense the gist of it...
In fact, I was already sensing
this development as early as December 2000 - many months before 9-11.
As I wrote in the 'Two Suns of Election MM' article (Dec. 4,
In general, revolutionary
changes seem to be coming in 2001 onward. [...]
...it may be inferred that
those presidents (or candidates, Bush and Gore) will in some way
mark the end of presidency or the United States as it exists today.
Back then this was a pretty
crazy thing to say. But not now. It is already happening.
|September 3, '03
the US was finally forced to go back to the UN and ask
for international help. Ouch! How embarrassing for the Bush
administration - especially the neocon gang who practically said 'f**k off' to
at the time of the
war. You can almost see Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, etc. shaking in anger
and shame right now. Let's face it, the arrogant neo-con war policy failed
miserably just as predicted by all those who opposed the war. It
failed because the plan was so dependent on the assumption that WMD
would be discovered in Iraq and that the Iraqi citizens would greet
the US soldiers with kisses and flowers (hehehe...). When that didn't
materialize, the US got stuck in the worsening mess of Iraq; the
neo-con gang was unable to move on and attack other countries like Iran
and Syria as they had hoped. The war was based on a big bluff - that
WMD would certainly be found in Iraq - and the bluff just collapsed.
And now the opposing political force represented by Colin Powel is
coming into power. Neoconservatives are losing momentum; their
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to realize their imperial 'Pax
Americana' dream is slipping away.
hope that the psychotic neo-con cult, fighting for its political
survival, won't go berserk and do insane things. And they just might,
given how crazy they are. This is a dangerous time right now.
Further worsening the situation
is the recent killing of
a leading Shia Muslim leader, Ayatollah
Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim,
in Iraq (Najaf), along with nearly 100 more people. This was
perhaps the last signal that Iraq is beginning its rapid descent into
complete chaos. Sam Hamod, the
former Director of the Islamic Center of Washington DC, advisor to the
U.S. State Department, and editor of Third World News in DC, writes:
- Now Iraq will explode and
Paul Bremer will be lucky if he escapes with his life, as will
some of our top brass in Iraq. The killing of Ayatollah Hakim
was a major catastrophe for the Iraqi people, but it will be an
even larger one for the West, especially the US and UK, along
with Israel. [...] I predict all hell will break loose in Iraq,
and possibly in other parts of the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds
wherever US/UK and Israeli interests are represented.
It's also interesting to note
that the timing of this event may be relevant to the 'Sept. 1'/Labor
Day matter discussed in the Aug. 29 entry. The bombing took place on
Friday and the big funeral ceremony for al-Hakim was held on
Tuesday/Sept. 2, thus nicely bracketing the Labor Day weekend during
which hundreds of thousands of mourning Iraqi Shiite Muslims marched
to Najaf. (Labor Day also saw Israel declaring
'all-out war' against Hamas.)
And there are two new
developments that have - together with various other misconducts - the
potential to bring down the Bush administration. One involves
Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who is largely responsible for creating the
scandal of the 'sixteen words' uttered by Bush in the State of Union
speech (regarding Iraq obtaining nuclear material from Africa). This
was the first time that the White House was in panic mode. And they
were pissed that someone had the audacity to expose the
administration's lies. So what do they do? They whispered to
journalist Robert Novak that Wilson' s wife was a CIA agent (implying
that this was somehow what motivated Wilson to attack the White
It was an intimidation tactic.
Only this time they went too far.
This time what they did was illegal and treason. As John Dean writes:
On July 17, Time magazine
published the same story, attributing it to "government
officials." And on July 22, Newsday's Washington Bureau
confirmed "that Valerie Plame ... works at the agency [CIA] on
weapons of mass destruction issues in an undercover capacity."
More specifically, according to a "senior intelligence
official," Newsday reported, she worked in the
"Directorate of Operations [as an] undercover officer."
In other words, Wilson is/was
a spy involved in the clandestine collection of foreign
intelligence, covert operations and espionage... Now she has herself
been placed at great - and needless - risk. [...] No doubt the CIA,
and Mrs. Wilson, have many years, and much effort, invested in her
career and skills. Her future, if not her safety, are now in
After reading Novak's column, The
Nation's Washington Editor, David Corn, asked, "Did senior
Bush officials blow the cover of a US intelligence officer working
covertly in a field of vital importance to national security--and
break the law--in order to strike at a Bush administration critic
and intimidate others?"
The answer is plainly yes. Now
the question is, will they get away with it?
Fortunately, Joseph Wilson could
not be intimidated. He is going after the White House and recently
revealed that the treasonous official who leaked the sensitive
information was none other than Bush's top political adviser Karl
Rove, the Nazi-like propaganda specialist who has been described as
Bush's brain. Increasingly, this is being viewed
as a very serious matter (the mainstream US news networks have not
touched the story yet):
This is the hottest and most
explosive story behind the scenes in Washington in terms of how it
could affect the Bush administration. [...]
This is very explosive and
what makes it so explosive is that this Intelligence Identity Act,
if it can be proved, and Rove can be successfully prosecuted and if
Rove reveals that the president George Bush told him to institute
this leak, then the President's automatic shield of immunity is
removed and the president himself can be prosecuted for murder if
any deaths of any US intelligence agents or assets resulted from the
leak. This is the only legal statute that has this provision. [...]
The way the Bush Regime is
trying to quash it is to slow it way down by exerting so much
pressure against Pro-Bush Media... If there is no public attention,
there will be no steam behind it. Some of the congressmen are trying
to push this into higher quarters. They’re trying to get Howard
Dean to talk about it since he’s getting so much press coverage...
[This] story, which should be more widely known, ...is certainly one
of the most egregious abuses of power yet perpetrated by the Bush
Honestly, it would be so great
to see this parasite Rove (and the rest of the fascist gang) taken out
of the White House in handcuffs.
As for the second developing
problem for the Bush administration, it's the shocking lie told to New
Yorkers right after the events of 9-11. Just last month it was revealed
In the aftermath of the Sept.
11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, the White House
instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to give the public
misleading information, telling New Yorkers it was safe to breathe
when reliable information on air quality was not available. [...]
Rep. Jerry Nadler
(D-Manhattan) called for a Justice Department investigation.
"That the White House instructed EPA officials to downplay the
health impact of the World Trade Center contaminants due to
'competing considerations' at the expense of the health and lives of
New York City residents is an abomination," he said in a press
Only today I saw NBC Nightly New
do a piece on this. And I can't help but think that this story, which
demonstrates that as far as the Bush regime is concerned these New
Yorkers can drop
dead, is where many people will finally go 'okay, that's it, this
administration has to go':
George W. Bush has officially
told the people of New York City that as far as he's concerned, they
can drop dead. And thanks to his lies, many of them will. With his
latest attack on the Clean Air Act he's said the same to millions
more... Because of Bush's lies, thousands of Americans will suffer
cancers, emphysema, heart attack, stroke, birth defects, stillbirths,
sterility, eye/ear/nose/throat disease and much more.
Let's see how long Bush can
sustain his smirk. Incidentally, the British counterpart, Blair, is
already in deep trouble. Seemingly the situation over there is
worsening daily. Just today we read:
The government was dealt a
devastating blow today when two intelligence officers revealed there
were deep concerns about the strength of the language used in the
Iraq intelligence dossier, with one complaining the document was
shaped for political purposes. [...] It
could prove a turning point in the inquiry and may provide the BBC
with some critical evidence to support its argument that... the
government had "sexed up" the Iraq intelligence dossier.
Okay, more updates coming... In
fact, I'm working on something that may develop into Endgame VI.

forget, let me just briefly comment on the London power outage incident
which closely followed the massive blackout in the US. Given the
significance of the US blackout on various levels as discussed here
before, it's certainly interesting that another major, mysterious
blackout struck another 'Babylon city' (London). Perhaps on some level
we can view these as an omen to the two nations - the US and Britain -
that preemptively and unjustly attacked Iraq. 'Karma' often works in mysterious
It's worth noting that the
London blackout (Aug. 28) came exactly two weeks after the one in the
US (Aug. 14). Adding another two weeks directly brings us to 9-11.
Another important US-Britain
parallel occurring is Tony Blair's worsening 'Iraqgate' political
crisis that is beginning to resemble Watergate. In the US, the
mounting 'misconducts' of the neocon/Rove-driven Bush administration -
involving Iraq and 9/11 - have also been compared to the Watergate
mess (commentators usually note that the current administration is
much worse than Nixon's). And it may well be that what is happening to
Blair is a 'preview' of what the Bush regime will soon face. Thanks
largely to the utterly incompetent and controlled mainstream US news
media, things are just moving more slowly in the US compared to Great
Surely, if Blair does fall,
people will wonder why Bush is still standing tall. (The neo-con
people, and Rove, are undoubtedly aware of the brewing trouble; so
they must be planning something to counteract it... Hopefully those
closet fascists won't deceive themselves - like they often do - into
thinking that another '9/11'/'Pearl Harbor' would be a good thing for
not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that
take our breath away.' - George Carlin
