john mccain's skelton closet snip (click link for more)
McCain was one of the "Keating Five," congressmen investigated on ethics charges for strenuously helping convicted racketeer Charles Keating after he gave them large campaign contributions and vacation trips.
Charles Keating was convicted of racketeering and fraud in both state and federal court after his Lincoln Savings & Loan collapsed, costing the taxpayers $3.4 billion. His convictions were overturned on technicalities; for example, the federal conviction was overturned because jurors had heard about his state conviction, and his state charges because Judge Lance Ito (yes, that judge) screwed up jury instructions. Neither court cleared him, and he faces new trials in both courts.)
Though he was not convicted of anything, McCain intervened on behalf of Charles Keating after Keating gave McCain at least $112,00 in contributions. In the mid-1980s, McCain made at least 9 trips on Keating's airplanes, and 3 of those were to Keating's luxurious retreat in the Bahamas. McCain's wife and father-in-law also were the largest investors (at $350,000) in a Keating shopping center; the Phoenix New Times called it a "sweetheart deal."
- Mafia ties: In 1995, McCain sent birthday regards, and regrets for not attending, to Joseph "Joe Bananas" Bonano, the head of the New York Bonano crime family, who had retired to Arizona. Another politician to send regrets was Governor Fife Symington, who has since been kicked out of office and convicted of 7 felonies relating to fraud and extortion.
- At least one veteran's group (U.S. Veteran's Dispatch) really hates him, and accuses McCain of cooperating with the North Vietnamese while he was their prisoner. They also sketch McCain's ties, through his wealthy father-in-law, to various Arizona scandals including the murder of reporter Don Bolles.

Zionism Is Nobody's Friend
By Judy Andreas
What was this power to which Wilson referred? Why was it talked about in hushed tones and behind closed doors?
Our public has been and continues to be duped. It is a process which begins early and is unrelenting. It begins in homes and schools. It begins on the radio and television. It begins in the print media. And, ultimately, a Pavlovian reaction occurs; man is no longer a critical thinker. Man has become a machine. I know the process all too well; I was a part of it for more years than I care to admit. And now that I am able to see beyond the curtain, even if only partially, I want nothing more then to alert people to the game that is being played at their expense.
Jews have played an important role in this duping drama and yet, the average Jew remains ignorant of what is transpiring. The average Jew has been effectively brainwashed by cries of anti-Semitism and pictures of the Jewish Holocaust The average Jew lives in a state of fear and anxiety and feels a part of the victim class. No matter how much power is amassed, the average Jew feels one step away from extinction. There is always a threat hanging over his head. Another swastika appears on a Synagogue. Another "suicide bomber" manages to get through the labyrinth of checkpoints in Israel. (if you know anything about the checkpoints, you will find this a bit difficult to believe ) Well placed occurrences keep the average Jew vulnerable to this "power." And what is this power? ZIONISM.
Zionism is a political movement that arose in the latter part of the 1800's. Initially it referred to the effort of certain Jewish people to establish a Jewish nation in the land of Palestine. But that term has changed over the years. Today it applies to those who want to expand the borders of what was already established. It refers to those who think nothing of putting their own interests ahead of the interests of any nation in which they reside. It refers to those who will sacrifice anyone, Jews and Gentiles alike, to realize their goals.
It is a grave mistake to believe that all Jews are supporters of Zionism. There have been many vocal critics as well as some who have, for reasons of fear and intimidation, not been as vocal. I will mention some of these courageous voices and my apologies to those I omit. Anti-Zionist writers such as John Sack, Alfred Lilienthal, Benjamin Freedman, Israel Shamir, Israel Shahack, Norman Finkelstein, Henry Makow, Ralph Schoenman, Lenni Brenner, Victor Ostrovsky, Henry Meyer and Jack Bernstein are only of few of this group. These man have dared to speak out and have, as a result, been forced to suffer vicious attacks from groups like the "Anti-Defamation League" (ADL). Despite its appealing name, this group specializes in slander and defamation.
Author Jack Bernstein stated:
"I am well aware of the tactics YOU, my Zionist brethren, use to quiet anyone who attempts to expose any of your subversive acts. If the person is gentile, you cry "you're anti-Semitic," which is nothing more than a smokescreen to hide your actions. But if a Jew is the person doing the exposing, you resort to other tactics:
First, you ignore the charges, hoping the information will not be given widespread distribution. If the information starts reaching too many people, you ridicule the information and the person giving the information. If that doesn't work, your next step is character assassination. If the author or speaker hasn't been involved in sufficient scandal, you are adept at fabricating a scandal against the person or persons. If none of these are effective, you are known to resort to physical attacks. But NEVER do you try to prove the information wrong. " (from The Life Of An American Jew in Racist-Marxist Israel. By Jack Bernstein, 1984)
Bernstein challenged the ADL to an open debate on television. Not surprisingly, the challenge was declined.
The Neturei Karta is the name given to a group of Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem who refuse to recognize the existence or authority of the so-called "State of Israel" In their literature they write:
"Zionist propagandists are always given to bullying tactics and censorship. It is very helpful in this regard to read former Congressman Findley's book, They Dared to Speak Out. It is the sorry record of the immense resources that the Zionist lobby invested in destroying the careers of politicians all across the United States who had voiced some qualms about this nation's subservience to Israel.
Of course, anti - Zionist Jews of all political and religious orientations have long experienced the lash of the Zionist movement. In 1924, a scholarly Dutch Jew, Dr. Jacob Israel de Hahn, who functioned as a secretary of Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld (1849 - 1932 ) Chief Rabbi of Palestine, (may their memories be blessed) was murdered as he returned from evening prayers outside Shaarui Zedek hospital in Jerusalem. His crime was that he had been involved in discussions with Arab leaders that offered an alternative to Zionist hegemony. His murderers were members of the Haganah, a Zionist, so - called "defense organization." In fact, Dr. de Hahn may well be described as the first victim of Zionist violence in the Holy Land. Yet, outside of a limited circle of anti - Zionist Jews, this cowardly and cold blooded murder is completely unknown "
Our history books are replete with blank pages. There is a virtual media blackout on some of the most prescient occurrences that have led to the untenable situation in today's world.
In the late 1800's, the Zionists schemed to take over Arab Palestine. Most people are not aware that the Jews had not controlled Palestine since the days of the Roman Empire and that the small group of Arab Jews who lived in Palestine got along well with their Muslim hosts and never expressed any desire to overthrow the Ottoman rulers and set up a nation called Israel. This movement came strictly from influential European Zionists.
In 1914, Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Turkish Empire were locked in conflict against England, France and Russia. By 1916, however, the Germans, Austrian Turks appeared to have won the war. Germany made an offer to Britain to end the war. It was an offer that was favorable to Britain, and yet, the British and the international Zionists had different plans. Led by Chiam Weizmann, they used their influence to bring the United States into the war on Britain's side. In exchange, the British would reward the Zionists by taking Palestine from the conquered Ottoman Empire. Once under British control, the Jews of Europe would be encouraged to immigrate to Palestine in huge numbers.
Zionists such as Bernard Baruch, Louis Brandeis, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and others influenced President Woodrow Wilson, a man whose closet contained a few skeletons that he preferred to keep hidden. The press transformed the German Kaiser and his people into bloodthirsty "Huns". In Germany, the Zionists used their power and influence to undermine Germany from within. The result was that the German, Austrian and Ottoman Empires were defeated and their maps were rewritten by the powers at the Treaty of Versailles in 1918.
The Balfour Declaration, which gave the land of Palestine to the Jews, was issued in 1917, one year before Germany surrendered. (The Jewish Virtual Library of the American-Israeli co-operative enterprise.)
For the readers who have dismissed what I have written so far, I ask you to turn your attention to the work of Benjamin Freedman. Freedman was an American millionaire who severed ties with his fellow Zionists years after the war. He went on to dedicate much of his life and fortune, from the Woodbury Soap Company, to exposing the truth about both World Wars and the Zionist grip on America. This is easily verified. Do not let knee jerk reactions close your mind. I know how distressing this is. Growing up Jewish, I have 'walked that walk'. I have felt the sorrow and disbelief. It is important, however, that we begin to write some real history on those blank pages in your school syllabus.
The Balfour Declaration was a letter prepared in March 1916 and issued in November of 1917 by the British statesman Arthur James Balfour, the foreign secretary which expressed the British government's approval of Zionism and "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."
As a result, Israel was established as an independent state in 1948 in the mandated area.
The German people resented the Zionist role in bringing about their WW 1 defeat as well as the incredibly harsh Treaty of Versailles with its brutal monetary reparations. The German economy was in ruins. The people elected Adolf Hitler in 1932 and the Nazi party soon seized control of the German media, banks and universities away from the influential Zionists who had controlled them.
Zionists called for action against Germany and boycotts were imposed in the UK and USA. On March 24, 1933, "The Daily Express" of England carried the following headline; "Judea Declares War on Germany. Jews of All the World Unite in Action" ( Daily Express (England) March 24, 1933.)
In September of 1939, Germany and Poland went to war over disputed territory that had been taken away from Germany by the Versailles Treaty of 1918. Great Britain and France saw an opportunity to declare war on Germany under the pretext of protecting Poland. They conveniently ignored the fact that Stalin's Soviet Union had invaded Poland too. Germany pleaded with Britain and France (the Allies) to withdraw their war declarations, but the Allies continued their massive military buildup along Germany's frontiers. Germany's neighbors (Belgium, Holland and also Norway) succumbed to Allied political pressure to allow their armies to establish bases in their territories. In the spring of 1940, the war in Western Europe began when Germany launched preemptive invasions of Norway, Holland and Belgium. In the United States, the Zionists applied pressure to Franklin Delano Roosevelt to involve the United States in the war.
The rest is history, if you'll pardon the poor pun. The United States' entry into the war resulted in another crushing defeat for Germany.
A few years after the end of the second World War, the plan to establish the nation of Israel in Palestine materialized. Great Britain, left weakened, were chased from Palestine by Zionist acts of terror. The most notorious terror group was the Irgun, led by Menachem Begin. Later on, Begin would go on to become the Prime Minister of Israel and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. It kind of leaves you scratching your head, doesn't it?
July 22, 1946, Irgun terrorists, dressed as Arabs, entered the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. They unloaded 225 kilograms of explosives. The Secretariat of the Government of Palestine and the Headquarters of the British Forces in Palestine were housed there. Most of the victims were British but 15 innocent Jews also died. The radical Zionists had no trouble killing their fellow Jews in their attempt to advance their mission.
The Irgun terror gang also targeted Arab civilians in order to frighten them into leaving their homes and villages. The massacre at Deir Yassin, April 9, 1948, was one such occurrence.
Christian Arabs numbering over 254 were dragged from their homes, lined up and shot. Many were old men, women and children.
By 1948, the UN, UK and US had recognized the nation of Israel. One of its first acts was to pass "the law of return", which gave any Jew in the world the right to move to Israel and become a citizen. The land had been stolen from the Arabs in a brutal fashion and the brutality has not stopped.
In the years that have followed, many "false flag" operations have occurred:
1. In 1955, Israeli agents, impersonating Arab terrorists were caught staging a series of bombings against US installations in Egypt. The scandal came to be known as the Lavon affair.
2. In 1967, during a war with the Arabs, Israeli gunboats and fighter jets attacked the USS Liberty, an unarmed US ship. Thirty five American sailors were murdered and 170 were injured. Their excuse was that they mistook the ship for an Egyptian one. However, survivors of the incident have contradicted this.
3. In the 1980's, the Israelis once again succeeded in framing enemy Arabs in order to anger the United States. Former Mossad case officer Victor Ostrovsky defected from the Mossad and tried to warn the United States about their evil, murderous nature. He told how the Israelis framed Libya for the bombing of a German night club which framed Libya and caused President Reagan to bomb Libya in 1986, killing the 4 year old daughter of Libyan leader Muamar Qadhafi. Ostrovsky's 1990 book, By Way of Deception revealed how the Mossad recruits Arab agents to carry out their missions. He also stated "Israeli agents are skilled at impersonating Arabs."
It is imperative to emphasize that Zionism is nobody's friend. It is imperative that Jewish people realize that they too have been betrayed by the Zionists who have continued using Judaism to hide behind. In fact, when all the details are carefully examined and carefully considered, the painful reality is that it was ZIONISM which literally sent Europe's Jews into the bowels of the Holocaust.'
A veil of disbelief shrouds many Jewish eyes. This is because the sordid history of Zionism has been so effectively suppressed. The plethora of Holocaust movies and cries of anti-Semitism have left Jewish people with fear and trembling. How many of these people are aware that the Zionists collaborated with the Nazis?
1. According to Lenni Brenner's book Zionism in the Age of Dictators (Ch.7), the Zionist party was the only other political party in Nazi Germany that enjoyed a measure of freedom, and could publish a newspaper. The reason: Zionists and Nazis had a common interest, making German Jews go to Palestine.
2. "If I knew that it would be possible to save all the children in Germany by bringing them over to England and only half of them by transporting them to Eretz Israel, then I opt for the second alternative." David Ben Gurion informed a meeting of Labor Zionists in Great Britain in 1938 (Brenner, Zionism, p.149)
3. In November 1942, Rabbi Michael Dov-Ber Weismandel, a Jewish activist in Slovakia approached Adolph Eichmann's representative, Dieter Wisliceny: "How much money would be needed for all the European Jews to be saved?" Wisliceny went to Berlin and returned with an answer.
For a mere $2 million they could have all the Jews in Western Europe and the Balkans. Weismandel sent a courier to the World Zionist Organization in Switzerland. His request was refused. The official, Nathan Schwalb sent enough money to save only Weismandel and his cadre. He wrote:
"About the cries coming from your country, we should know that all the Allied nations are spilling much of their blood, and if we do not sacrifice any blood, by what right shall we merit coming before the bargaining table when they divide nations and lands at the war's end? ....for only with blood shall we get the land." (Brenner, Zionism, p.237)
"Why would the Zionist leaders betray the Jews of Europe?" You wonder. After all, the entire rationale for the state of Israel has been that it was intended to be a refuge for Jews facing persecution.
The Zionists, to the contrary, saw any effort to rescue Europe's Jews not as the fulfillment of their political purpose but as a threat to their entire movement. If Europe's Jews were saved, they would wish to go elsewhere and the rescue operation would have nothing to do with the Zionist project of conquering Palestine. Their obsession with colonizing Palestine and overwhelming the Arabs led the Zionist movement to oppose any rescue of the Jews facing death, because the ability to deflect select manpower to Palestine would be impeded.
From 1933 to 1935, the World Zionist Organization turned down two-thirds of all the German Jews who applied for immigration certificates. As late as 1943, while countless Jews in Europe were dying, the U.S. Congress proposed to set up a commission to "study" the problem. Rabbi Stephen Wise, who was the principal American spokesperson for Zionism, came to Washington to testify against the rescue bill because it would divert attention from the colonization of Palestine.
One would have, perhaps, expected the Zionists to understand the meaning of humiliation and the pain of being perpetual refugees. And yet, in place of compassion, the Zionists celebrated the persecution of others, even as they first betrayed the Jews and then degraded them. They selected a victim people of their own on whom to inflict a conquering design. They aligned the surviving Jews with a new genocide against the Palestinian people, cloaking themselves, with savage irony, in the collective shroud of the Holocaust. http://www.marxists.de/middleast/schoenman/ch06.htm
A chilling tale of Zionist crimes against their brethren is known as The Ringworm Children.
4. In 1951, the director general of the Israeli Health Ministry, Dr. Chaim Sheba flew to America and returned with 7 x-ray machines, supplied to him by the American army.
They were to be used in a mass atomic experiment with an entire generation of Sephardi youths to be used as guinea pigs. Every Sephardi child was to be given 35,000 times the maximum dose of x-rays through his head. For doing so, the American government paid the Israeli government 300,000 Israeli liras a year. The entire Health budget was 60,000 liras. The money paid by the Americans is equivalent to billions of dollars today.
To fool the parents of the victims, the children were taken away on "school trips" and their parents were later told the x-rays were a treatment for the scourge of scalpal ringworm. 6,000 of the children died shortly after their doses were given, the many of the rest developed cancers that killed them over time and are still killing them now. While living, the victims suffered from disorders such as epilepsy, amnesia, Alzheimer's disease, chronic headaches and psychosis.
Yes, that is the subject of the documentary in cold terms. It is another matter to see the victims on the screen. ie. To watch the Moroccan lady describe what getting 35,000 times the dose of allowable x-rays in her head feels like.
"I screamed make the headache go away. Make the headache go away. Make the headache go away. But it never went away."
To watch the bearded man walk hunched down the street.
"I'm in my fifties and everyone thinks I'm in my seventies. I have to stoop when I walk so I won't fall over. They took my youth away with those x-rays."
To watch the old lady who administered the doses to thousands of children.
"They brought them in lines. First their heads were shaved and smeared in burning gel.
Then a ball was put between their legs and the children were ordered not to drop it, so they wouldn't move. The children weren't protected over the rest of their bodies. There were no lead vests for them. I was told I was doing good by helping to remove ringworm. If I knew what dangers the children were facing, I would never have cooperated. Never!"
Because the whole body was exposed to the rays, the genetic makeup of the children was often altered, affecting the next generation. We watch the woman with the distorted face explain, "All three of my children have the same cancers my family suffered. Are you going to tell me that's a coincidence?"
Everyone notices that Sephardi women in their fifties today, often have sparse patchy hair, which they try to cover with henna. Most of us assumed it was just a characteristic of Sephardi women. We watch the woman on the screen wearing a baseball-style hat. She places a picture of a lovely young teenager with flowing black hair opposite the lens. "That was me before my treatment. Now look at me." She removes her hat. Even the red henna can't cover the horrifying scarred bald spots.
The majority of the victims were Moroccan because they were the most numerous of the Sephardi immigrants. The generation that was poisoned became the country's perpetual poor and criminal class. It didn't make sense. The Moroccans who fled to France became prosperous and highly educated. The common explanation was that France got the rich, thus smart ones. The real explanation is that every French Moroccan child didn't have his brain cells fried with gamma rays.
The film made it perfectly plain that this operation was no accident. The dangers of x-rays had been known for over forty years. We read the official guidelines for x-ray treatment in 1952.
5. Thermonuclear blackmail of America by Zionist Israel. Yes, it is quite true as revealed in a stunning United States Air Force paper located here: http://www.rense.com/general35/isrnuk.htm
One other purpose of Israeli nuclear weapons, not often stated, but obvious, is their "use" on the United States. America does not want Israel's nuclear profile raised. They have been used in the past to ensure America does not desert Israel under increased Arab, or oil embargo, pressure and have forced the United States to support Israel diplomatically against the Soviet Union. Israel used their existence to guarantee a continuing supply of American conventional weapons, a policy likely to continueThe Counterproliferation Papers Series was established by the USAF Counterproliferation Center to provide information and analysis to U.S. national security policy-makers and USAF officers to assist them in countering the threat posed by adversaries equipped with weapons of mass destruction. Copies of papers in this series are available from the USAF Counterproliferation Center, 325 Chennault Circle, Maxwell AFB AL 36112-6427. The fax number is (334) 953-7538; phone (334) 953-7538.
The internet address for the USAF Counterproliferation Center is:
Have you had enough? I have. I am tired of the manipulation. I am tired of watching people fighting; people who should be banding together in a common cause. I am tired of watching Jews and Gentiles being used for the nefarious gains of an extremely dark force. I am tired of watching the targeting and extermination of Muslims. I am tired of watching our rights disappear while the populace falls asleep in front of their televisions. I am tired of hate and dissension. I am tired of helplessness and hopelessness and an immobilized populace. I am tired of watching people throw their hands up in despair.
There are lone voices crying in the wilderness. Are these voices falling upon deaf ears? I urge every person of conscience to speak out. Don't be afraid. We are the many and they are the few. Add your voice to this group until the hushed whispers become a deafening roar.
Are you doubting what I say? Don't take my word, do your own investigation. It's a painful exploration but I truly believe that the balance of this planet hangs on the opening of Jewish eyes. There are many good hearted Jewish people who are being duped along with their Gentile brethren. Much of the world is waking up to the manipulations of the few and it is imperative that Jewish people join them. There is no time to waste. The information is limitless. There is no refuge for Jewish people in Israel. My dear readers, Zionism will not protect you. Zionism will crucify you on a bloody cross of avarice. It is only through a union of Jewish, Christians and Muslims that we will we be able to take back our planet.

on thursday 08 june 1967, the zionist state of israel launched an unprovoked attack upon the uss liberty agtr-5. the zionists murdered thirty-four american sailors and wounded 172 more. many of them disfigured for life. the purpose of the attack called a "false flag" attack was to make it look like egypt had attacked the united states thus tricking us gullible americans into doing the zionists dirty work for them -- decimating egypt -- by entering the six day war on the side of israel.

I didn't write the article, so I certainly can't speak for how it was put together; I will say, though, that I never once thought - for even a second - that Mayor Roy had any part in this ugly matter.
I've been in contact with officials within city government, and have come to the conclusion that I'd felt was true all along - there are some crooked city councilmen who didn't want their Quein' on the Red cash-flow to come to an end so soon, and they had to silence any dissenters.
I've since learned that a rather threatening call was made the Wednesday before my termination to my supervisors, followed by the impromptu meeting with Ms. Harris the next day.
Mayoral staffers were told by Ms. Harris that she tried to convince Cenla Broadcasting NOT to terminate me. I believe she's lying. Why?
1. Why would they be discussing their hiring/firing practices with her?
2. If my statements weren't of any concern to her or those who call her shots, quietly, behind the scenes, why would I even be a topic of discussion between she and C. Soprano and T. Thompson, the two Cenla Broadcasting heads?
No, I'll instead choose to believe that she carried marching orders, not from the mayor, but from a handful of greedy city councilmen and GAEDA members.
Here's where the conspiracy theorist comes out in me...
FACT: Quein' on the Red paid $55,000 for the services of the Commodores (with only one original member) in 2006; most casino bookers would tell you they normally charge only $10-15,000 or so to perform.
QUESTION: Why did Quein' on the Red have to pay SO much more? And if the Commodores didn't get $35-40,000 more for this gig, then WHO DID?
FACT: THIS year, the Quein' on the Red folks were hell-bent to hire EARTH, WIND & FIRE and we were told, within our conference room walls at CB, that they were prepared to spend.... are you sitting down... $150,000 to get 'em.
QUESTION: If a similar genre act only costs $10-15-20,000 for a casino or any other festival to line them up, why is it that Alexandria taxpayers are being led to believe this same act costs SOOO much more, on their dime?
MY GUESS: Somebody local is reaping a tremendous benefit. Probably multiple people.

we have to give representative cedric richmond (house district 101 map) some credit for introducing his bill calling for a state sales tax (4%) holiday beginning at 12:01 am sunday 05 august 2007 and ending a week later at 11:59 pm on saturday 11 august 2007.
our problem with this legislation is that its limited to just $2,500 [1,896eur.] it doesnt include "vehicles" and "the purchase of meals furnished for consumption on the premises where purchased, including to-go orders." so much for saving the sales tax on a whopper or a pizza and a beer.
all legislation like this is designed to do is to make the people feel beholding to the state government. like we should be thankful to them for giving us something. while in reality every penny of money in this state as well as everything else already belongs to the people. if representative richmond and the rest of the organized crime ring that calls itself the louisiana legislature wanted to do the right thing there would be no monetary limit. there wouldnt be exclusions or exemptions. if the legislature really wanted to do the right thing they would gladly give sales tax holidays not just once but several times a year. besides being the right thing to do it would also periodically; during historically slow times stimulate the economy. but our legislature doesnt think that way. to louisiana politicians its a us versus them mentality and how much the legislature can steal from the people.

the other day we posted about a local disc jockey: ron roberts, who was fired over what he says was his comments about some local festivals one called "riverfest" and the other "que'in on the red." despite what some people think, the only purpose of our post was to ask whether or not it was true or not that because of his comments that the city of alexandria, la., had mr. roberts fired.
anyhooo, we began to receive a few googlers searching for mostly "ron roberts + kqid" and so forth. then earlier today we noticed a googler searching: "QUE-IN ON THE RED IN ALEXANDRIA, LA" you know us, ever curious so we decided to click on that url from our referral log and see what google had for that search string. up till that particular moment in time we didnt even know that quein on the red had its own website and we didnt care. to be honest we never go to any of alexandria's much ballyhooed festivals such as cenlabration, uncle sam jam, riverfest, quein on the red and so forth because quite frankly alexandria doesnt hold very good parties. over in grant parish, tiny colfax if you can believe it, does a much better job in that department every year with their pecan festival.
to make a short story longer, just for the hell of it we decided to find out who owned the queinonthered.com domain and thats when things got interesting:
domains by proxy, inc. is a unit of godaddy.com. godaddy.com, besides producing trashy super bowl advertisements, are a known host and facilitator of online pornography and especially online chat room pornography and porn spammers. of course we arent suggesting that whoever is behind queinonthered.com is into pornography we are just pointing out that godaddy.com and all its subsidiaries are nothing but pure sleaze because they allow pornographers to hide their names behind domains by proxy, inc.
its contact information lists a city of alexandria executive with a city of alexandria email address:
when you download an entry form from the quein on the red website it mentions the city of alexandria and gives a city of alexandria mailing address:
the city of alexandria, louisiana website information isnt a secret: (although maybe it should be lol)
so, quein on the red apparently receives city funding, it defiantly has city personnel handling among other things, its email and postal mail communications and yet the city or someone doesnt want it known who owns the website. why?

last year representative alario didnt even bother to move his bill -- hb644. it was assigned to the house ways and means committee where it was promptly lost. in fact a check of the bills history shows that it never even came before the committee for a vote or a debate.
so why do the same old silly clowns introduce the same legislation year after year when they have no intention of moving it to begin with? its not because the legislature has a problem with submitting constitutional amendments. in the 30 september 2006 primary election there were 13 constitutional amendments on the ballot. on the 07 november general election there were another 8!
so once again the bill has been assigned to the ways and means committee. this year the chairman is central louisiana's own t. taylor townsend. other ways and means committee members also from central louisiana are representative israel "bo" curtis and chairman townsend's gold club buddy representative rick farrar.

(CBS) NEW YORK Residents of Greenwich Village are still talking about the rat invasion of a local KFC/Taco Bell, and some are questioning if they will ever eat out again.click link for more
"When I saw the news about the rats, I was like freaking out," frequent customer Kim Pagnottan said. "I was like holy (bleep). I was like oh my god. It's disgusting!
"Now, it's like I don't want to even go out, I want to eat at my own house. I want to cook every day."
Pagnottan wasn't the only person grossed out by the day's doings. Added Eddie Rue, a now former customer: "I will never eat in there again. Definitely lost me as a customer."
And countless more are sure to bail now that the city's Health Department inspected the premises and shut it down until its violations are corrected.
One man in particular was doing his best at damage control. "Please, I hope that the public that saw that won't be turned (off), tempted not to patronize our restaurants because we have the finest and cleanest restaurants in the world," said Chuck Hunt of the New York State Restaurant Association.

we just came across a great post from 20 february 2007 on viva la blog.
heres a snip:
Tony Snow and “real journalists” finally agreed on something tonight at a roundtable held for very serious people at the National Press Club: Blogs suck. They’re mean. And … and … and … they actually expect reporters to do their jobs!click the link to read more.
We’ll skip Tony Snow. Who cares? But via Think Progress, a couple of journalists had some interesting things to say, kind of opening a door into the higher minds that are raised so far above the rest of us.
NBC News’ David Gregory bemoaned how political coverage has “become so polarized in this country…because it’s the internet and the blogs that have really used this White House press conferences to somehow support positions out in America, political views.”
Can you imagine that? The nerve! People actually use White House press conferences to form and support political views! And then they write about those views! Where anybody can read and see and respond and argue and fact-check them! And they haven’t been seen – not once! – at a cocktail party in DC. Next thing you know, they’ll start thinking regular old ordinary people have a right to opinions or something.
And then there’s this:
Newsweek’s White House correspondent Richard Wolffe added, “[Bloggers] want us to play a role that isn’t really our role. Our role is to ask questions and get information. … It’s not a chance for the opposition to take on the government and grill them to a point where they throw their hands up and surrender.”
That’s it? Ask questions and get information? No context, no analysis, no pointing out that what Tony Snow says this morning was contradicted by what he said last week? Gotcha. I guess that relegates any role beyond being a human tape recorder to the blogs.

in a posting (see link) captioned "Talk about town: Is the government your mama?" the town talk is asking for "your mailers" and "story chatters" to respond with their thoughts on various nanny state laws such as government mandated motorcycle helmets and seat belts. the sentence that reads "Texas has made the vaccine Gardasil, that protects against a sexually-transmitted disease that has been linked to cervical cancer, mandatory for girls age 12 and over." shows that the town talk is a partner in perpetrating what paul craig roberts explains is:
A media hoax has fooled parents in Texas and other areas of the country that the HPV vaccine, which experts have slammed as untested and has already been linked to dangerous side-effects, is now the law and young girls must take it.click here to read more.
Almost immediately following Perry's announcement, newspapers and TV stations began to report that it was "the law" that parents had to have their child vaccinated. This reflects a national and international hoax that is repeatedly being perpetrated
also if anyone would bother to read governor rick perry's actual Executive Order RP65 - February 2, 2007, one would see that the only time the word "mandate" is used is under rules where governor perry directs The Health and Human Services Executive Commissioner adopt rules that mandate the age appropriate vaccination of all female children.

via www.thedeadpelican.com the town talk posted an interesting story (see link) to its website tonight. ron roberts was the program director and morning disc jockey for local radio station kqid fm-93.1. apparently, mr. roberts made, in some bureaucrat with the city of alexandria opinion, disparaging remarks about the demise of the annual riverfest celebration and was fired from his job for it. according to the town talk "Roberts said he “basically backed up” a Feb. 17 article in The Town Talk in which organizers said the festival had suffered from competition for sponsorships with the newer, Alexandria-run Que’in on the Red." we dont know for sure but we assume the saturday 17 february 2007 town talk article is this one "RiverFest won't be held this spring; future shaky."
the town talk reported that mr. roberts said: “I spent a lot more time talking about how well done (RiverFest) was, what a good job they did.”
then, the next thing mr. roberts knows is that at 9:30 am city of alexandria, director of community services, lisa harris (telephone 318.449.5056 email email@example.com) personally appeared at the offices of cenla broadcasting, inc., to contend that mr. roberts "comments had angered city officials." then at 11:00 am, mr. roberts was called into the office of cenla broadcasting, inc. president taylor thompson "and was told he was no longer employed."
we didnt hear mr. roberts broadcast this morning so we dont know if his comments were worthy of his being fired over but we do know that this is highly questionable behavior on the part of an executive with the city of alexandria. this should have a chilling effect on anyone who is thinking about "commenting" in any forum about city policy. is the administration trying to send a message that if you say something they dont agree with that you or your boss can expect a knock on the door? just who does the city think they are anyway? so what if city officials dont like some of the things that are said about them! after all they work for the citizens. is the city officials there to serve the citizens or to serve their own interests by silencing and intimidating any who dare question their policies?

traitor to the constitution and bill of rights, rhodes scholar communist and bush crime family boot licker: louisiana's senator david vitter appeared on the kalb-tv jambalya program this morning (see link) to take slow balls and carefully crafted leading questions from republican cheerleader al quartermont. senator vitter was in town to discuss how best to rebuild the new orleans area health care system. it makes sense that senator vitter is so involved in louisiana health care when you consider that cecil rhodes founder of the rhodes scholarships and hence senator vitter was and are adepts of eugenics. senator vitter says that "unfortunately the results of the old charity system were the worst health care icons in the country." this is total bullshit.
senator vitter explains that we need to "get past all the finger pointing and just get the job done for the entire state." the whole of louisiana health care will be integrated into this new system that he calls "key economic development infrastructure priorities of this area central louisiana as well as north of here." senator vitter further states that "this rebuilding process and the money thats coming into the entire state is a huge opportunity to do things different and to do things better and so i am very engaged in that debate to make sure that we do things different and better whether its health care or anything else."
What Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Milner had in mind was the formation of a master/slave society based upon the principles of eugenics as derived from Plato's Republic. Malthusian Eugenics is the philosophy of depopulation through the reduction of inferior races --"human weeds"-- and the selective breeding of "a race of thoroughbreds" as described early in this century by Rockefeller-funded, Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger. When Thomas Malthus' theory of population was later coupled with Charles Darwin's evolutionary model, the result was known as Social Darwinism.click here to read more.
when you stop and think about it this is exactly what has happened at new orleans post katrina.
