| 9/11 101 - Still Believe the Official 9/11 Myth?
I just heard nearly two hours of ftruth about what really happened on 9/11. This was a broadcast that offered only facts.. not theory....documented facts that totally refute the official story of 9/11. An archive of the TvNewsLIES radio show is available at monksmedia.com.
It's an absolutely MUST listen.
There are more than twenty pages of documentary videos and startling information.... NOT theoriees.....on the TvNewsLIES.org
website. The radio link for this show is here.
Don't remain among the few people who still believe the lies we've been told. Do the research yourself. It's startling and you will not want to believe what you hear and see. But you owe it to yourself and the country to open your eyes and your mind. Current Mood: angry

|Sarah Palin, Lemming Hunter
Maybe it’s genetic, but Sarah Palin sure is good with a gun. It seems that daddy loved bringing down those nasty Alaskan brown bears in a town where little Sarah first learned to alarm the local moose community. But trust me, I’m not knocking moose stew; it might be a really good meal.
Palin grew up in Alaska, where people hunt and fish. So be it. This is not going to be a dissertation on animal rights or a moral critique on her spare time activities. Moose and salmon and wild birds are fair game for hunters in her neck of the woods, and Sarah hunts and fishes with the best of them. Good for her.
But in her new role as the GOP veep candidate Sarah Palin has crossed a line, even for a hunter. This time she has set her sights on a new and unfamiliar target. This time she is not aiming at a herd, or a bevy or a flock. This time she is going after a large group of intelligent, thinking Americans known as women voters. .
And this time, as she hunts in uncharted territory, Sarah Palin has made a strategic error. For some distorted reason, Palin thinks she is hunting lemmings.

|Yankee Doodle Deadly!
Here they come again – the Sousa bands, the waving flags, the cheering crowds, and the fabulous fireworks. Ah, yes, it’s Yankee Doodle time again in America. So let’s get ready to party.
It’s just that I really don’t understand what we’re celebrating.
I don’t really understand why millions of people in this country still pretend that they live in America the Beautiful. I don’t understand why they are not wailing in grief because Yankee Doodle is no longer “dandy.” I don’t understand why there is no widespread sadness about the tragic transformation of their national image.
In fact, in this eighth year of our Bush/PNAC captivity, far too few people in the United States are willing to acknowledge that Yankee Doodle Dandy has now become Yankee Doodle Deadly. The sad truth is that too few people are even remotely aware that the American flag, like Yankee Doodle, has lost every bit of its meaning.
For sure, on this Fourth of July, millions of US flags will be flown as if nothing untoward has happened to the nation they represent. So many Americans have no clue that their flag has lost its glory. They do not realize that Yankee Doodle – along with any other symbol of the USA – now stands for immoral wars, a shattered Constitution, domestic spying, legalized torture, and corporate greed.

|Matthews Promotes Russert to Master 9/11 Gatekeeper!
On Monday, Chris Matthews continued his ongoing canonization of Tim Russert. Early in the evening’s [i]Hardball[/i] show, Matthews repeated a segment of his original tribute to Russert’s career. By doing so, he either shamelessly established Russert as a leading 9/11 gate keeper or a blithering idiot. I strongly suspect the former.
Of all the endless possibilities, Matthews chose to memorialize Russert for some uncanny and privileged insight into the truth about what happened on September 11th. He wanted us all to know that
“[Tim Russert] knew on that horrid morning of September 11th that the hijackers had grabbed the transcontinental flights because they’d have enough fuel to melt the girders of the World Trade towers.”
Wow, just like that, on the morning of 911, Tim Russert KNEW the motivations of a whole group of incinerated hijackers. That’s really fantastic. He also KNEW the planes had enough fuel to melt the girders of the World Trade towers. He just KNEW the temperature of burning jet fuel, and he KNEW the melting temperature of steel. Tim Russert was not only a mind reader of the dead, but an undeclared expert in aviation practices and thermal physics. I’m impressed.

|Operation Iraqi Takeover Hits a Dead End (For Now)
It’s not on the network news programs, because, in fact – it’s kind of secret. Even the
print media, where they’ve covered a bit of this story, don’t know very much about it. Whatever it is, U.S. officials refuse comment on the details. Even members of Congress are out of the loop, but it really does sound super!
It’s got one of those feel good Bushco names, - you know – like the Patriot Act, No Child Left Behind, Clear Skies, and – of course, Operation Iraqi Freedom. All these clever captions successfully sold Americans some really toxic legislation, and anesthetized their free fall into dictatorship and economic collapse.
So what’s to worry about a "US-Iraq Security Pact" with our good buddies in Iraq?
Heck, Americans want security and surely Iraqis want security, - and don’t we all just want to get along? It does sound eerily comforting after so many years of killing and maiming, so maybe our compassionate leader and his cohorts are really working to provide us with peace and prosperity after all. So why all the behind-closed-doors stuff? And why, after months of bargaining has it come to a no-deal dead end?

|Sinking to New Depths: The Mad Hatter Lectures the Arab World!
I don’t know who is writing George Bush’s speeches nowadays, but it has to be someone with really serious mental problems. It’s embarrassing enough when this clueless president attempts to speak spontaneously. Left to his own devices, he cannot string together a handful of simple words with any coherent continuity; just as he cannot offer rational responses to questions he apparently is unable to process. But when George Bush has a prepared speech to deliver to an apprehensive audience of 1,500 global policymakers and business leaders in the Middle East, you’d think he would say something intelligent. Think again.
It’s seems almost ridiculous when you do think about it, - but today, the President of these United States sought to lecture men whose cultures he does not understand, and whose history he does not know, and whose societies he has never studied, and whose people view him with distrust and disrespect, on how they should conduct their lives.
At an international conference of Arab notables, this arrogant, unpopular, ineffective, and insensitive man – George W. Bush - dared to pass himself off as a staunch defender of peace and freedom in the world, as well as the reigning champion of political freedom and women’s rights...
It is beyond insanity. Having George Bush lecture anyone about peace and freedom is much like Charles Manson giving a talk on positive group dynamics.

|Our Forgotten Shame in the Green Zone - tvnl
I’ll admit it, I did not remember either. Even though we reported the story last year, so much has happened in Iraq that somehow I, too, had forgotten. The story, like so many others, had been swept under the proverbial rug by the corporate media, and within a day or so the world forgot about the Filipino workers in Iraq.
But a few days ago, I received a personal email from an officer serving in Iraq and housed in the Green Zone, and the story came back to me, full blast. Just a few words in the message reminded me of the forgotten horror that must be added to the countless crimes this administration is committing in Iraq.
This time around, I don’t want the story to become lost in the endless melee of death and destruction that defines this useless war. I just want to put it out into the public consciousness once again, so we don’t simply forget what is going on. This time around, it has to get some real attention.

|What the Hell is an "Unpopular" War?
‘Unpopular’ - un'pop•u•lar - Lacking general approval or acceptance.
Aw, gee.. The American people really don’t approve of the war. They’ve totally forgotten about the death and destruction in Afghanistan, but they just can’t find it in their hearts to give the war in Iraq a thumbs up. What a shame.
It’s so comforting to know that we’re in the midst of what the pundits now call an ‘unpopular war.’ I suppose it’s something like an unpopular brand of toothpaste, - not really terrible, but somewhat unappealing and not quite what the public wants. “It’s not the war, really,” we hear. “It’s the way it was fought.” It’s not the toothpaste either, I imagine, but something about the after taste.
Is it conceivable that that this illegal, immoral war, built on a mountain of lies and deceptions is merely unpopular? Is it possible that the death, the bloodshed, and the hundreds of billions of wasted dollars simply lack the general approval of most Americans?
One has to wonder what would happen in a ‘popular war.’...

|Celebrating the Anniversary, Mr. Bush?
The war against Iraq began at 5:30 AM Baghdad time (9:30 PM EST, March 19), when the U.S. launches Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Five years, George. Five ugly, deadly, bloody years. This is quite an anniversary. If you wait a day or two, you’ll be able to celebrate the 4,000th US military death as well.
Break out the champagne.
It’s been a fairly quiet five years, George. No photos of the dead or dying. No flag-draped coffins, no talk of the legless, blinded or horribly burned. Not a murmur about hundreds of thousands of dead and terribly injured Iraqis. No concern about the millions who had to flee the country of their fathers… no fanfare about daisy cutters or depleted uranium. Celebrate….we’re making progress.
Great news management, George, -you’d hardly know such carnage was involved. . Good for you....

|Enabling a Madman: George Bush and American Amnesia
It just doesn’t stop. With painful consistency, there always is a new effrontery, a new attack on the Constitution, and a new slap in our collective faces. And every day, the American public responds largely in silent quiescence, seemingly unperturbed and indifferent to the insults and abuses being hurled at them from the man who reigns supreme in the White House.
And with this apathy, the people of the United States offer aid and comfort to their greatest enemies from within, and unwittingly give tacit approval to a madman and his boss.
I refuse to give total credit to Bush himself for his actions. The man does not have the intelligence, insight or experience to personally inflict all the damage done by his administration. However, for the sake of simplicity, I will refer to George Bush as the major culprit involved in the crimes against the nation and the world.. In fact, responsibility lies with the entire cadre of neocons and delusional managers who placed a sociopath in the White House and allowed him to play a role he was ill equipped to handle.
Therefore, just consider what George Bush managed to slip past a sleeping public in just the past few days...

|2007 - Look Back in Anger!
... Americans seem to be a people with a very short memory span and a very limited sense of outrage. I don’t know what it will take to shake them into any semblance of collective outrage or united action. I do know however, that I am angrier at the close of this year than at the end of any other ear that has passed.
As you might well imagine, I am furious with the usual suspect:: the corporate thugs, the PNAC warmongers and the religious fanatics who have wreaked such irreparable havoc on us all. TVNL has raged against what they have done to destroy the lives of so many.. But this time around I am ever more unforgiving in my despair and pessimism because of what has NOT been done by those who could have and should have lived up to the promise of change
It was a year of stunning inaction, during which so much that might have been done, and that could have been done, was NOT done, 2007 was heralded as a year of hope and progress. It was not. At year’s end, the crimes of the Bush administration still were business as usual. At year’s end, every outrage against the nation and the world remained uninvestigated and unpunished.
And by the year’s end, members of both parties had joined forces to do nothing at all that might lead to a Happy New Year for anyone..
Just think about it for a minute. Here are some of the issues that could have been dealt with in 2007 and are OFF THE TABLE for any legislative action as I write. Even if every one of them had failed to pass a divided Congress, in the very least, the facts finally would have been placed in the public arena. In the very least, they would not have been swept under the proverbial rug of our shamefully intimidated and cowardly elected legislators.
As 2008 begins, here are SOME of the issues that have endangered our democracy and the lives of so many around the world. For all of 2007, there was no action, nor were there any plans to:

|Cirque de Bush at Annapolis!
Geez, I do hope that at least they have lots of music and cotton candy and crackerjacks. That’s about all they’ll have to offer, if the performance is not to be a total waste of time.. The Bush Cirque at Annapolis is up and running and we’re all invited to watch the show. So now, here they go, performing all the tricks they’ve practiced for years. Hurry and get your tickets to watch the nonsense begin.
It’s the Bushco, last-minute, save-your-legacy photo op: after seven years, a make believe moment meant to assure the world that he gives a damn about peace in the Middle East. It’s an absolute circus – a farcical conference of forty nations that looks real and looks sincere and is so damned foolish as to be laughable. But, then again, it might look good in the Bush Library when this tragic term is over, so go for it. Get the Israelis and the Arab envoys on their individual trapezes and let them swing away. What fun, what nonsense, but then again, what great PR and what super headlines. But, in reality, it’s all a futile exercise in total bullshit.
Here’s the rub: all of the acrobats are swinging through the air, determined never, ever to catch one another in mid flight...

|Could Musharraf’s Actions Be a Dry Run for Bushco?
Does any thinking person really believe that the dictator of Pakistan is able to make ANY political or military decision without the approval, if not the actual direction of the US Government?
The answer is so damned obvious as to be childish. No, he can’t, because money talks very loudly. The 700 MILLION dollars in economic and military assistance the US gave to General Pervez Musharraf this year alone is most definitely not an altruistic gift that comes without strings.
The 800 million dollars scheduled to reach the Pakistani government in 2008 will continue the guarantee that Pakistan will continue to do exactly what the Bush administration. Musharraf would not last a day I office without US aid and protection. Not a single day....
...Could the events in Pakistan be a testing ground for what Bushco might be planning in the US to avoid the consequences of fair and democratic elections here in 2008?
Understand that none of Musharraf’s actions could have been implemented without the approval of the Bush administration. Understand as well that Condy Rice has announced that these actions will not mean the discontinuation of aid to the government of Pakistan...

|Bill Maher, Gatekeeper or Coward?
Bill Maher lost his job first time around for a remark about the alleged hijackers of 9/11. I suppose he's been warned that any discussion of 9/11 that does not follow the Bush/PNAC line will mean the end of his career. It seems that Bill Maher, like so many others, has his price.'
Maher is a comedian who hosts a weekly discussion about relevant current political topics. He has no qualms about broaching very controversial topics and is an equal opportunity host on any issue OTHER THAN 9/11. On that topic, he has unequivocally labeled as fools all who raise questions about the official story.
Maher's histrionics last night... having to show his macho skill at running into the audience to personally oust the 9/11 truth-seeking protester was one for the record books. It seems that he will talk to anyone, no matter how extreme or controversial, from Ann Coulter on, but the one taboo topic for the Bill Maher show remains 9/11. Maher went so far as to say that on this single topic, of all the controversies of this administration... on this ONE topic, he agrees with George Bush. Those were his words last night.
You have to wonder why he would totally close the door to any possible discussion of the one event that made all the other horrors possible. Duh....
There were a number of scenarios he might have followed to deal with the protester. For starters, he could have offered to invite someone of repute to come on the show and present their case at a later date. That would have quieted the protester as well as others in the audience who were angered by Maher's dismissal of anyone and everyone who dared to doubt the official lies offered by Bushco. His ridicule of the 9/11 Truth Movement is way out of character for someone so willing to call all the other Bush lies what they are....and you have to wonder who got to him and whose back he's covering.
One can only conclude that Bill Maher is either a coward, sacrificing principle to protect his job, or a Gatekeeper of the first order, working to keep any open discussion of 9/11 from ever reaching the public.
This is not about what Maher believes or does not believe about 9/11. It's about the refusal to consider that there might be another side to the discussion, especially in light of all the evidence to that effect that has been unearthed by scholars and scientists... not idiots or nut jobs, as Maher insinuates.
In case you want to promote this argument, here's something I've posted before, which you might have missed:

|Nobel Booby Prize For GW Bush!!
Just think about it: Some of this week’s awards from the Nobel Committee went to people who must seem like the anti Christ to our pretentiously pious President, George W. Bush. For starters, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to Mario R. Capecchi, Martin J. Evans and Oliver Smithies who were recognized for a series of ground-breaking discoveries concerning embryonic stem cells! OH MY GAWD!
And, of course, this morning, the darkest of dark news descended on the White House when Bush’s nemesis Al Gore shared the Nobel Peace Prize with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change! ARMAGEDDON IS SURELY UPON US!...
...Okay, fair is fair. If we applaud one side, let’s give the other a nod as well. After all, we now live in a country in which war is peace and Fascism is democracy, good is evil and up is down. Nothing is as is was and nothing at all is as it should be. So why not enter the looking glass reality of George W. Bush and acknowledge what he has managed to ‘accomplish’ in so short a time?
In that pursuit, I hereby nominate George W. Bush, along with all of those who have supported behind his delusions, Booby Laureates of 2007! No man in recent history deserves this more.

|Five Easy Pieces to Iran! A Warning....
The Jigsaw to Armageddon
Yeah, folks, you can bet the ranch: we’re going in. I’ve heard all the arguments from the nay sayers, so let that go. We’re going in.
This is déjà vu time, for sure, as we look back on the months before Shock and Awe, when so many of us tried to warn the nation about the coming catastrophe in Iraq. But those of us who shouted went unheard and those of us who marched in protest went unseen. Yet in the end we were right on the mark.
And so, we’ll try again. This time, we’ll set out five easy pieces of a doomsday jigsaw puzzle that easily can be assembled if you take the time to do so. As in any such puzzle, the separate parts might be interesting, but not significant in themselves. But once assembled, the full picture emerges, where none could be seen before.
Each piece of this puzzle contains disturbing evidence that Bushco intends to unleash a massive, and possibly nuclear attack on Iran in the very near future. Examined separately, the pieces might seem unsettling but not calamitous. But when all of the pieces are viewed in correct perspective, when they interlock to form a complete picture, the final image is undeniable:
The puzzle we have pieced together reveals a very frightening picture: It is very plausible that in a very short time, most assuredly before the next presidential election, the murderous men in charge of US foreign policy may unleash Armageddon on us all.Check out the Five Easy Pieces of my Doomsday Puzzle:http://tvnewslies.org/blog/?p=658

|George W. Bush and Black Holes!
Most of us don’t know a helluva lot about black holes, and probably don’t really care to know very much about them. But in truth, black holes are really fascinating once you take a closer look…even to a lay person with not much background. Trust me on that for a bit.
For starters, what I do know is that a black hole is an area out in space that’s so huge that its gravitational pull is astounding. So, astounding, in fact, that nothing, absolutely nothing that gets close can escape being sucked into it. That means everything, no matter how massive, would be able to escape its pull and nothing we know could move fast enough to draw away from its gravitational power. Not even a beam of light.
Stay with me here and you’ll see where I going.
One more interesting bit: According to Einstein, objects of very great mass distort time and space so that the usual rules of geometry just can’t be used to explain their behavior. So, when it comes to a black hole, something strange happens. It has a boundary that’s very unusual. If you reached that boundary, you could pass through it, but you would not be able to back out. In fact, once you’ve passed through the boundary you’d be doomed to move closer and closer to the center of the black hole.
And then it would only be a very short time until you die.
Now, that’s all fairly interesting, but why would I want to write about black holes at all? Stay with me just a little bit longer, I promise to connect.
For the record, and just in case you do happen to get pulled into a black hole, rest assured that you wouldn’t really feel anything terribly unusual at first. If the hole was a really big one, you wouldn’t be torn apart until you were about half a million kilometers from the center. Imagine that. Even as you were being pulled towards certain doom you might not suspect that anything was terribly wrong.
I suppose, when it comes it black holes, in a way, bigger is better.
And in a way, a really big black hole has formed right here on earth, and right here in the good old USA. And in a most precarious way, we all are dangerously close to the boundary from which there is no return. For in an undeniable and almost inevitable way there is a direct nexus between a barely discernible black hole in our own land and the reign of George W. Bush.
For the sake of simplicity, let’s call it the Bush Black Hole and understand that we can’t see into its abyss because black holes are devoid of light. But if we take a look around, we become painfully aware of the things that have disappeared from our lives in the past seven years, never ever to be seen again. Some vanished in secret while others were tossed into the chasm with arrogant disregard of all that we once were as a nation.
No matter how it came to pass, so much of value has crossed a mysterious boundary into the oblivion of the Bush Black Hole. Tragically, much of what has disappeared has not yet been missed by so many Americans. They don’t have a clue that so much that was so vital to their lives has been hauled forever into the bowels of this administration.

|The Bombs of August!: Hiroshima and the Bush Doctrine
In Remembrance of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
When the bombs were dropped I was very happy. The war would be over now, they said, and I was very happy. The boys would be coming home very soon they said, and I was very happy. We showed ‘em, they said, and I was very happy. They told us that the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had been destroyed, and I was very happy. But in August of 1945 I was only ten years old, and I was very, very happy.
The crew of the B-29 was so young and heroic, and in the photo they also looked very happy. For some reason, I clearly remember the name of the pilot, Paul Tibbets. Of course I remember the name of the plane, the Enola Gay. And oh yes, I remember the name of the bomb. It was called Little Boy. That made me smile.
I was so proud to be an American that day because we had done something so remarkable. They said we were the first. We were Americans. We were powerful. But they didn’t say that Little Boy had killed 66,000 people with its huge fireball that fateful day in August. They didn’t say that Hiroshima was not a military target, but a city filled with men and women and children and animals who had no idea they were about to die so horribly. When you’re ten, they don’t always tell you everything.

|Coming of Age in Bush’s America
Imagine being on the brink of adolescence in the year 2000, - only minimally aware of the world around you, and really not into the foibles of politics or politicians. Life was what it was, and you took it pretty much for granted. In fact, for you and other young teens in 2000; things seemed pretty good and getting better, because you were growing up in the richest and most powerful nation in the whole damn world.
It wasn’t a perfect place, for sure, but it had potential. There were wrongs to be righted, but there was real hope that things would only get better as the years went on. All in all, in the year 2000, being a kid in America was a good thing to be.
Now imagine that it is seven years later and you have just grown into adulthood, and you gradually realize that in a frighteningly short a time your entire world has become unraveled. In just seven years, everything good that once was there is gone, and your country has come apart at the seams before your very eyes.
Really think about these last seven years and recoil at what it actually means to have come of age in Bush’s America,
To assist your reality check, here’s a short list the mind-boggling transformations that have become standard operating procedure in the good old USA.....

|AND THEN THERE WAS ONE… - the Final Holdout: 9/11
Not to worry, this is not about truth seekers or conspiracy theories. It’s not about the long list of anomalies and discrepancies in the official story of 9/11. It’s not even about the undeniable fact that the events of 9/11 gave George Bush and his handlers the keys to the neocon kingdom of empire. It really is not.
What it’s about is the strangest phenomenon I can recall in my entire adult life. It’s about what I perceive to be an extraordinary lapse in the logic of millions of otherwise sensible Americans. And it’s about something I cannot wrap my mind around, no matter how I try. Maybe someone out there can help me understand what’s going on.
In preface, let me also say that this is not about being uninformed. Granted, the corporate media have suppressed any discussion, debate or investigative reporting about the attacks on the United States that purportedly ‘changed everything.’ That reality aside, even the most fawn-like pundits on the airwaves understand that the ship of state is sinking, and that it is time to challenge the lies of this administration. But, it seems that lie after lie has become fair game for disclosure, or at least for some discussion at this point. As a result, each day, the American people in larger and larger numbers understand that they have been taken for a terrible and costly ride by the lies they were told by this President and his cohorts.
That is, every lie but one....
