- Bush plans to unveil a $2.5 trillion budget today eliminating dozens of domestic programs, including funding for education, environmental protection, while proposing significant increases for the military spending. About 150 programs in all would be shuttered or radically cut back. One out of every three of the targeted programs concern education. Medicaid funding would be also be reduced significantly.
- PNAC says ...."The United States military is too small for the responsibilities we are asking it to assume. Those responsibilities are real and important. They are not going away. The United States will not and should not become less engaged in the world in the years to come.
- "Higher than expected turnout," US mainstream television media blared, some citing a figure of 72%, others 60%. What they didn't tell you was that these numbers were provided by one individual, Farid Ayar. Ayar said the 72% was "only guessing" and "was just an estimate," which was based on "very rough, word-of mouth estimates gathered informally from the field."
- The U.S. Department of Defense is currently making webpages which appear to be small independent news sites, in an attempt to spread official propaganda. The Department of Defense plans to add more sites on the Internet to spread propaganda to a global audience.
- The post-invasion US governing authority in Iraq lost track of $US 8.8 billion it transferred to government ministries in a black hole of fraud, kickbacks and misappropriation, according to an official US audit released yesterday.
- As the corporate media pundits praise the "free and fair" Iraqi elections, a closer look reveals that the polling in Iraq was fundamentally flawed and lacking transparency in the same way as elections in the U.S. No wonder that the same people are behind the organization of both.
- A detailed timetable of the destruction and distress that global warming is likely to cause the world was unveiled yesterday.
- Bush called Iran the "world's primary state sponsor of terror" and reiterated his accusations that the country is striving to develop nuclear weapons, a charge denied by Iran.

- History repeats itself. One of the bloggers at Daily Kos turned up this gem from the September 4, 1967, New York Times about the success of the "elections" in South Vietnam. An exact parallel to what is happening in Iraq today.
- Libya granted its first oil exploration licenses in over four decades, awarding 15 permits to foreign companies, with US companies taking the lion's share. First Libya is a terrorist nation, then it isn't. Maybe what the US calls "terrorism", and oil companies being allowed to produce oil, are somehow connected?
- With no fanfare, the U.S. House has passed a controversial doomsday provision that would allow a handful of lawmakers to run Congress if a terrorist attack or major disaster killed or incapacitated large numbers of congressmen. When are they planning their dictatorship?
- In 2002, syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher repeatedly defended President Bush's push for a $300 million initiative encouraging marriage as a way of strengthening families. Unbeknownst to us, this "independent reporter" had several contracts with the US Government and was being payed thousands of dollars.
- By any standard, the ongoing American occupation of Iraq is a disaster. The Pentagon is considering the organisation, training, and equipping of so-called "death squads", teams of Iraqi assassins, similar to what was organized in El Salvador.

- Iraqis are going to the polls unaware of the identities of many of the people they will be voting for. Although there are more than 7,700 candidates standing for seats in the new national assembly, hardly any of their names have been made public.
- People in many areas are being told that if they don't vote the food and supply rations they are supposed to get monthly will be cut off. What kind of democracy is that when you force people to go vote for someone or another they don't want.

- Bush wants to appoint Federal Appeals Court Judge Michael Chertoff's as the head of Homeland Security.

- Missing documents supplied by an anonymous source indicate that that Eli Lilly officials were aware in the 1980s that Prozac had troubling side effects and sought to minimise their likely negative effect on sales.

- Fallujans will be returning to an Orwellian police state. Residents would receive badges displaying their home addresses that they must wear at all times.

In all three of the key battleground states -- Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania -- Freeman's analysis states the odds of Kerry receiving the percentage of votes recorded, given the exit poll findings, are 250 million to one.
- One of the clear indicators of massive electoral fraud was the wide divergence, both nationally and in swing states, between exit poll results and the reported vote tallies. The major villains, it would seem, were the suppliers of touch-screen voting machine.
- There was something odd about the poll tapes. Election poll tapes in black garbage bags ready to be thrown away.
- Voting machines produced results in which the registered Democrat/Republican ratios largely matched the Kerry/Bush vote, however in Florida's counties using results from optically scanned paper ballots, the results seem to contain substantial anomalies.
- The American vote count system is controlled by four major corporate players, Diebold , ESS , Sequoia , and SAIC , Science Applications International. All four are hard-wired into the Bush power structure, the Bush crime family.

- Diebold’s current CEO Walden O’Dell is on record stating that he is “committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President” this year. On September 26, 2003, he hosted an Ohio Republican Party fundraiser for Bush’s re-election at his Cotswold Manor mansion.
- It's not even Election Day yet, and the Kerry-Edwards campaign is already down by a almost a million votes. That's because, in important states like Ohio, Florida and New Mexico, voter names have been systematically removed from the rolls and absentee ballots .
- Stanley Hilton sues Bush and his regime for doing 9-11. Mr. Hilton was a senior advisor to Sen Bob Dole (R) and has personally known Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz for decades. Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff.
- The Bush Administration--aided by right-wing allies who have produced assorted hired guns and conservative think tanks to further their goals--are engaged in a campaign to suppress science that is arguably unmatched in the Western world since the Inquisition.

- An analysis of all the members of the 9-11 Commission and their involvement in oil business dealings, previous CIA cover-ups, National Security State corruption, and terrorism.

Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Donald Rumsfeld for allowing the 9-11 attacks to take place.
- This is not some conspiracy nut. The analysis of a British MP and minster of the environment. The conclusion of this analysis is that the 9-11 attacks and the "global war on terrorism" are a political myth propagated to pave the way for a wholly different agenda - the US goal of world hegemony, built around securing by force command over the oil supplies required to drive the whole project.
