Why only 9, you say?  Why only post the very basic info, you say?  Why aren’t the stories clickable?

Because I want everyone to actually go to Project Censored and read ALL  OF  THE STORIES, or at the very least read the ones you find interesting.  The most important thing is that you support Project Censored by visiting their site.

Project Censored has obviously put alot of hard work and effort into gathering these stories and making sure they are all cited correctly and exhaustively. I applaud their work, their candidness and their accuracy.

Thanks for helping to keep information free Project Censored!! Keep fighting the good fight!





LOL: The Bush Bumper Sticker FWD + Tee Shirt Idea

9 05 2007

This is the only fwd that I have actually read, of late. Many of the little blurbs are old or stale, but they were good for a nice chuckle. In fact one of the little blurbs gave me a T-Shirt idea.

My personal favorite from the FWD was “Bad President! No Banana.” For some reason, I immediately imagined this t-shirt design:

bad president no banana tee

Here’s the whole list I got in the FWD:

  • 1/20/09: End of an Error
  • That’s OK; I Wasn’t Using My Civil Liberties Anyway
  • Lets Fix Democracy Here First
  • If You Want a Nation Ruled By Religion, Go Away!
  • Bush. Like a Rock.
    (Only Dumber.)
  • If You Can Read This…
    You’re Not Our President
  • Of Course It Hurts:
    You’re Getting Screwed by an Elephant!
  • Hey Bush Supporters: Embarrassed Yet?
  • They Call Him “W” So He Can Spell It
  • No, Seriously, Why Did We Invade Iraq?
  • Bad President! No Banana.
  • Is It Vietnam Yet?
  • Where Are We Going?
    And Why Are We In This HANDBASKET!?!?
  • You Elected Him. You Deserve Him.
  • Impeach Cheney First.
  • When Bush Took Office, Gas was $1.46
  • Pray For Impeachment
  • The Republican Party: Our Bridge to the 11th Century
  • What Part of “Bush Sucks Ass” Don’t You Understand?
  • “One Nation under Clod…”
  • 2004:Embarrassed – 2005:Horrified – 2006:Terrified – 2007:Pissed – 2008:Relieved
  • Bush Never Exhaled
  • At Least Nixon Resigned

I deleted the ones that weren’t funny, and I know funny, I’m a clown fish! I also edited some that needed a little tweeking and took out the blatantly old ones. Hope you liked it all, if not…

Evil Bananafear the evil banana





EXTREMELY GRAPHIC VIDEO: Teenage Girl Stoned To Death For Honor?!?

7 05 2007

This report from aina.org, translates an account of this story: Video Captures Stoning of Kurdish Teenage Girl, that first appeared on Jebar.info.

Excerpt:

Mosul, Iraq — According to the Kurdish website Jebar.info up to 1000 men from the Yezidi Kurdish community of Mosul killed a teenager who’s only crime was running away to marry a Muslim man whom she loved and converting to his religion.For four months the girl had been given shelter by a local Muslim Sheik. It was reported that in the last few days her family persuaded her to return home, convincing her that she had been forgiven by her parents and relatives for her mistake.

In a short mobile video clip which appears to have been taken by locals at seen of the murder, the girl is seen being ambushed on her way home by a group of up to 1000 men who were waiting for her to return; the men killed her in the most brutal way possible, by throwing large stones on her head. The following clips show that while she is alive and crying for help she is taunted and kicked in her stomach until someone finishes her off by throwing a large stone on her face.

In my opinion it doesn’t get much more disgusting and depressing than that. The depths to which human kind can sink are greater and more awful than anyone could every possibly imagine. Oxymoronic titled “honor killings” like these are perhaps the worst affront to peace, love and true honor that anyone could ever perpetrate on another human being. After the murders in Virginia, one starts to wonder at just what the hell is wrong with the world. Not even Mark Twain’s quote “When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.” can explain acts like this.

I am posting the videos for download in their original version. There are six in total and all are in the “.3gp” format. I zipped them all together with 7zip for a faster easier download: DOWNLOAD VIDEOS

I’m not going to post this for viewing on this page, or a freehost site. It just seems wrong. The only reason I posted the videos for download, is because I do not believe in censoring any information on the net. I do however think that posting the videos to dailymotion would sadistic.

I can only hope that by exposing incidents like these, that maybe someone will be averse to joining one of these murderous mobs.





Suprise: Fox News Purposefully Misquotes Obama On US Troops In Iraq

5 05 2007

Thanks to the peeps over at SpinnWebe, we have yet another example of Fox “Faux” News’ Right Wing bias and general craptasticness.

See for yourself:

April 1, speaking about the current conflict between the Senate and the President over war funding, Barack Obama says this (from USA Today):

“I think that nobody wants to play chicken with our troops on the ground,” said Obama. “I do think a majority of the Senate has now expressed the belief that we need to change course in Iraq.”

Yesterday, this graphic comes up on Fox:

fox-obamachicken.jpg
Does anyone else want to vomit with anger?

Huge props to SpinnWebe for catching this.  It just goes to show you that Fox News cannot be trusted to follow a story with any amount of credibility or honesty.  “Fair and Balanced” indeed.  There should be some sort of regulatory service for news outlets that could somehow shame or take disciplinary action against media moguls like Fox News.  Of course, free speech applies to these fuckers just like it applies to me, but fuckin A this shit is getting ridiculous.

People trust news outlets to give them the truth, even though they shouldn’t, and that trust is being abused to the extreme.  Maybe Jon Stewart could get rid of Fox News alltogether, he did it for “Crossfire”.  Man I love that clip: CLICKY.  Anyway, we’re probably just SOL and JWF as far as getting rid of Fox News all-together.

With Rupert Murdoch looking into buying the Wall Street Journal, this only makes me more averse to following the main stream media.  Not that I ever put much credence in them to start with.

In short, fuck those guys!

And GO SpinnWebe GO!!





Full Video Of Saddam Hussein’s Execution! (NSFW + Video + Download + WARNING)

30 12 2006

I stumbled on this video that seems to be real enough but you can never be sure when its from an anonymous source. The Iraqi Government had said they would release only certain parts of the video, which they did here (Link To First Saddam Video Post). I have all the videos here so you can see for yourself. The first one is the FULL EXECUTION and it is not for minors or the feint of heart.

Warning This Is Extrememly Graphic:


http://grouper.com/video/MediaDetails.aspx?id=1700173
Compare with the first videos:

The original file was called “Shaaaheed_IRAQ_Sdaaam.3gp”, but I never trust anything so I scanned it and converted it in order to make sure no “extra” code could stay in the file, even though I found none. Better safe than sorry.

You can download my virus scanned and converted file from one of these two places:

http://www.MegaShare.com/90108 Password = boring

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PTZ8L2CO

Haven’t seen anything on the major news networks on this, but if its real, it’ll pop up soon enough.

NOTE: You can download the other videos from the first link in this post.
