NAACP: We Support Marriage Equality

The nation's largest civil rights group, the NAACP, endorsed gay marriage on Saturday, giving a boost to the movement to legalize same-sex nuptials despite reservations expressed by some black ministers.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People passed the resolution at its board meeting in Miami "as a continuation of its historic commitment to equal protection under the law," the organization said.

"Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law. The NAACP's support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people," Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, said in a statement.

The gay rights movement got a big boost last week when President Barack Obama said for the first time he supports gay marriage.

After he announced his decision, Obama held a conference call with at least eight black ministers, some of whom were skeptical, to explain his position, The New York Times reported.

Three state legislatures have voted this year to legalize gay marriage — New Jersey, Maryland and Washington — although New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie vetoed the measure. In Maryland the law passed even though some black Democrats opposed it.

Six other states — New York, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Iowa plus the District of Columbia — have legalized gay marriage, and a handful of others recognize so-called "civil unions."

There has been a steady increase in support for same-sex marriage. The Gallup polling organization said in a recent survey that 50 percent of American adults now are in favor of it.

Church-going black Americans are divided over gay marriage, according to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, but are unlikely to vote for Republican Mitt Romney over Democrat Obama, the nation's first black president, in the November general election.

Romney opposes gay marriage, a position essential for winning the majority of evangelicals.

The NAACP opposed a constitutional amendment approved in North Carolina last week that would ban same sex marriage. Twenty-eight other states have voter-approved constitutional bans on same-sex marriages, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

President Obama's endorsement of gay marriage last week has everyone theorizing on whether it will hurt or help his re-election bid. Some argue that this move will cost the president support from Latinos, a rapidly growing population whose votes may decide the race in battleground states.
Bob Quasius, Sr., president of Café Con Leche Republicans, a group that does not take a position on gay marriage, claims the president's comments will distance him from Latinos, who are now over 16 percent of the U.S. population.
"Sixty percent of Latinos are center-right according to Pew Hispanic," Quasius said, "and more conservative Latinos, especially evangelical Christians, are strongly opposed to gay marriage. A majority of Latinos voted against gay marriage in California. Among Latinos who support gay marriage, many will view Obama's recent comments as election time rhetoric," Quasius said.
But despite a reputation of Latino social conservatism that the GOP likes to tout, in 2008, 67 percent of Hispanics voted for Obama, and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) doubts the President's comments will be a deal breaker.
"Most Latinos favor broader civil rights protections and inclusion in U.S. society and the issue of same-sex marriage is no exception. A majority of Latino voters favor legalizing same-sex marriage, as a recent NCLR study showed," Rep. Gutierrez said.
Clarissa Martinez, Director of Civic Engagement at NCLR, the country's largest Latino civil rights advocacy group, believes Mr. Obama's historic stance will actually increase his appeal among Latinos.
"The President's endorsement of same-sex marriage is historic and will resonate with the 54 percent of Latinos who support marriage equality (according to a recent report by Social Science Research Solutions, co-released with NCLR)," Martinez emailed. "And while marriage equality has not been a top voting issue or determining factor for Latinos overall, this endorsement may be one factor voters in favor take into account."
Pedro Julio Serrano, Communications Manager of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force attributes this to the Latino community's strong sense of family.
"We know what 'familia' is," he said, "and when we see same-sex couples in loving and committed relationships, when we see that more that 40 percent are raising children, we want them to have the same rights and protections as the opposite-sex couples have. In any case, if it has an effect, it will be a positive one," Serrano said.
The stereotype of Latinos as conservatives appears increasingly outdated. Indeed, the president's marriage equality stance seems to have energized immigration activists, especially young Latino voters who have built an alliance with gay activists on pushing for immigration reform. Juan Rodriguez, who is active in the Florida Immigrant Coalition, told the Associated Press that the gay rights and immigrant rights movements are "very aligned and becoming more so every year."
Analysts of the Latino vote also say that at the end of the day, the president's stance on marriage equality will be overshadowed by his reputation on creating jobs and immigration reform.
"Latino voters will be looking for specific plans that address the employment needs of the hardest hit communities, create jobs, and get the economy back on track," said Martinez, from the NCLR. "Immigration has also risen on the issue priority agenda, particularly fueled by the anti-Latino sentiment with which the immigration debate has been laced, and the impact on the civil rights of the community," said Martinez.
"For a large segment of the Latino community, immigration issues will probably have a bigger impact on the election than Obama's support for marriage equality," said Andrés Duque, a Latino LGBT rights activist and blogger. "Fairly or unfairly, there is a lot of discontent out there about the Obama administration's handling of the issue, particularly with the DREAM Act, and what keeps saving him is that the Romney campaign has struggled to frame the issue and aligned himself with some of the most anti-immigrant voices in his party," Duque added.
So while bread and butter issues might be an opening for the Romney campaign to bait Latino vote, the anti-immigrant rhetoric spewed during the GOP presidential primaries and the presumptive candidate's own hardline immigration stance might have totally slammed the opening shut.
Rep. Gutierrez stresses the fact that Romney has catered to the "loudest and least tolerant elements of the Republican base," which he says puts the GOP presidential hopeful and Republicans "out of step with America."

FROM THE NEWSPAPER "REVOLUTION" A Call for Mass Action Against the Suppression of the Occupy Movement
These past several months have witnessed something very different in the U.S. People from many different walks of life came together to occupy public space in nearly 1,000 cities in the U.S. They stood up to vicious police violence, they broke through the confines of “protest as usual,” and in the middle of all that, they built community. Even in the face of media attempts to ridicule, distort, and demonize these protests, their basic message began to get through. People throughout the U.S.—and even the world—took notice of and took heart from these brave and creative protesters.

The political terms of discourse began to shift; the iced-over thinking of people in the U.S. began to thaw. Standing up to the unjust brutality and arrests became a badge of honor. People began to listen to and read the stories of some of the victims of this economic crisis, and to share their own. And most of all, as the protests spread to city after city, the fact of people occupying public space forced open debate and raised big questions among millions as to what kind of society this is, and what it should be. Why does such poverty and need exist in the face of a relative handful of people amassing obscene amounts of wealth? Why do the political institutions of society seem only to serve that handful? Why do so many youth feel they face such a bleak future? Why does the insane destruction of the environment continue to accelerate? And what is needed to overcome all this?

Those who actually wield power in this country regarded these protests, and these questions, as dangerous, and reacted accordingly. Time and again those who wield power violated their own laws and ordered police to pepper spray, beat with clubs, and shoot tear gas canisters at the heads of people who were doing nothing more than non-violently expressing their dissent and seeking community. This reached a peak in the recent coordinated and systematic attacks of the past few weeks against all the major occupations. In fact, the mayor of Oakland admitted on BBC to being part of conference calls that coordinated national strategy against the occupiers. On top of all that, and in another blatant show of illegitimate force and power, they attempted to prevent journalists and photographers from covering these acts of repression—unless they were “embedded” with the police.

To put the matter bluntly, but truly: the state planned and unleashed naked and systematic violence and repression against people attempting to exercise rights that are supposed to be legally guaranteed. This response by those who wield power in this society is utterly shameful from a moral standpoint, and thoroughly illegitimate from a legal and political one.

Now this movement faces a true crossroads. Will it be dispersed, driven into the margins, or co-opted? Or will it come back stronger? This question now poses itself, extremely sharply.

One thing is clear already: if this illegitimate wave of repression is allowed to stand... if the powers-that-be succeed in suppressing or marginalizing this new movement... if people are once again “penned in”—both literally and symbolically—things will be much worse. THIS SUPPRESSION MUST BE MASSIVELY OPPOSED, AND DEFEATED.

On the other hand, this too is true: movements grow, and can only grow, by answering repression with even greater and more powerful mobilization.

The need to act is urgent.

As a first step in the necessary response, there must be a massive political mobilization on a day, or days, very soon to say NO! to this attempt to suppress thought and expression with brutality and violence. This mobilization should most of all be in New York, where this movement started... but it should at the same time be powerfully echoed all around the country and yes, around the world. This is a call for massive demonstrations—soon—carried out in public spaces where they can have maximum impact and exposure and where the authorities cannot pen in, suppress, and otherwise attempt to marginalize these demonstrations.

These demonstrations must be large enough to show clearly that people will not tolerate that which is intolerable... that people will not adjust to that which is so manifestly unjust. Such demonstrations, along with the efforts to reach out and build them, can draw many more people from passive sympathy into active support and can awaken and inspire even millions more who have not yet been reached. Such demonstrations can powerfully answer the attempt by “the 1%” to crush and/or derail this broad movement. Thousands and thousands in the streets, acting together, can seize new initiative and change the whole political equation. The urgent questions raised by Occupy—and other urgent questions that have yet to be raised in this movement—can once more reverberate, and more powerfully than before.


What would have happend to Michael Richards if he had let loose his racist tirade while Seinfeld was still an NBC hit? What about Mel Gibson's famous anti-Semitic invective if Braveheart was about to be released? What did happen to Dr. Laura when she let it all hang out about her feelings about African-Americans? She quit (got fired).

So what should happen to Tracy Morgan?

While Richards, Gibson, and Dr. Laura revealed reprehensible prejudice, none of them actually sanctioned violence against the groups they denigrated. By contrast, Tracy Morgan joked about deadly violence against LGBT youth.

He should be fired.

For those of you who missed it, according to Kevin Rogers who attended Morgan's show in Nashville: Morgan:

said if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death.
In a year when we have experienced horrible suicides of LGBT youth which sparked a national movement called "It Get's Better" to not fire Tracy Morgan sends exactly the wrong message at the wrong time. To advocate violence against anyone is disgusting, but against our most vulnerable youth -- it crosses the line.

After attending seminary I worked for a year with LGBT Youth in Seattle, Washington. Most of the young people I worked with were homeless because of the psychological or physical abuse they had recieved at the hands of their own family and at their schools. They lived on the streets, crashed on sofas and sometimes even turned to prostitution or other crime because of the 'funny' reality that they could not be gay and welcomed within their own family, schools and community. It is these exact kids, who experienced such trauma at their rejection by those who were meant to love them, that Tracy Morgan is suggesting should be stabbed with a knife within their own home.

Tracy Morgan's violent tirade unfortunately raises wider questions about the whole Lorne Michaels production machine. Why there has never been an 'out' SNL actor? Is there is some kind of odd sanction of gay bashing within the ranks of that outfit? I just read Tina Fey's hysterical memoir "Bossypants" which shares her important relationships with gay people throughout her life. Clearly Fey must be appalled as are probably most of the other members of the cast. But ultimately, if Morgan stays, it is a signal by the entire 30Rock show that joking about gay bashing, and even killing, doesn't really cross the line.

What is even more galling to me as a minister is that Morgan said within his routine that "God don't make no mistakes." Yes, that is true. And God made all of us and we are all beautiful and are meant to have lives full of love, security and beauty - including every single gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered child.

There could be redemption here. If Morgan is really sorry as he says he is. Then let's see him spend some serious volunteer time with LGBT youth in New York and Los Angeles. Words are not enough -- this 'joker' needs to be schooled. So, Tracy -- the ball is in your court, show us how you really feel. Volunteer with gay kids -- 200 hours should do it.

If he doesn't, then I'm sorry to say it, but 30 Rock will be permanently poisoned unless he goes.

Okay, I'm not talking about drugs. We all know Cherie gave that up long ago, and good for her. What I'm talking about is Cherie's crazy, wing-nut conservative views that she's posting on her facebook page. These aren't just conservative views, but far right-leaning conspiracy theories she's lapping up and disseminating. I know Joan and Kenny tend to be progressive-leaning Democratics or Independents. Joan stumped for Howard Dean, about one of the most progressive Dems to run for president, bar none (and I would have voted for him if he hadn't been unfairly knocked out of the race and demonized). I just think Joan should be careful about affiliating herself with Cherie if this is the kind of thing Cherie's going to be blathering on about. It could make Joan (and Kenny) look really bad. Cherie's alligned herself with this Sarah Palin/Tea Party lynch mob that is advocating violence against Democratic members of the House. I'd be concerned that Cherie would use her platform opening up for Joan on this tour to start spewing this garbage. It just makes me really sad and kind of pissed, like she sees a gravy train in right-wing rhetoric and is trying to position herself to become the next Anne Coulter. I've always appreciated Joan's political views, but I'm starting to really dislike Currie over this crap. Anyone else feel the same? It's a free country and everyone has the right to express their views but Cherie has gone way over the line.

Main Man Records Responds to Runaways Tribute Album Lawsuit

Posted on Jun 14th 2011 12:00PM by Amy Sciarretto Comments

QUOTE FROM JAYNE COUNTY - *EVERYONE involved in this, is a stupid asshole, as far as I am concerned!*


Ex-Runaways guitarist Joan Jett and vocalist Cherie Currie filed a lawsuit against Main Man Records last week in an attempt to block the release of 'Take It Or Leave It,' a tribute album to their former band. The track listing of the tribute featured the likes of Shonen Knife and New York Dolls' singer David Johansen, among many others. Jett and Currie said that Main Man and its staffers made claims that Jett supported the release and gave it her blessing, which she did not.

Main Man responded by claiming that all recordings on the album were donated by the bands "in tribute to a band that has influenced and entertained them all" and "with the hope of raising funds for cancer research." The label says that all the writers of the songs have been compensated, and that they are bummed that a charity album is considered something that would sully the images of Jett and Currie. The label plans to defend itself against the charges.

Bob Dylan lyrics - Chimes of freedom

Download text file

Far between sundown's finish an' midnight's broken toll
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
An' for each an' ev'ry underdog soldier in the night
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

In the city's melted furnace, unexpectedly we watched
With faces hidden as the walls were tightening
As the echo of the wedding bells before the blowin' rain
Dissolved into the bells of the lightning
Tolling for the rebel, tolling for the rake
Tolling for the luckless, the abandoned an' forsaked
Tolling for the outcast, burnin' constantly at stake
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Through the mad mystic hammering of the wild ripping hail
The sky cracked its poems in naked wonder
That the clinging of the church bells blew far into the breeze
Leaving only bells of lightning and its thunder
Striking for the gentle, striking for the kind
Striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind
An' the poet an the painter far behind his rightful time
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

In the wild cathedral evening the rain unraveled tales

For the disrobed faceless forms of no position
Tolling for the tongues with no place to bring their thoughts
All down in taken-for granted situations
Tolling for the deaf an' blind, tolling for the mute
For the mistreated, mateless mother, the mistitled prostitute
For the misdemeanor outlaw, chased an' cheated by pursuit
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Even though a clouds's white curtain in a far-off corner flashed
An' the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
Electric light still struck like arrows, fired but for the ones
Condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
Tolling for the searching ones, on their speechless, seeking trail
For the lonesome-hearted lovers with too personal a tale
An' for each unharmfull, gentle soul misplaced inside a jail
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Starry-eyed an' laughing as I recall when we were caught
Trapped by no track of hours for they hanged suspended
As we listened one last time an' we watched with one last look
Spellbound an' swallowed 'til the tolling ended
Tolling for the aching whose wounds cannot be nursed
For the countless confused, accused, misused, strung-out ones an' worse
An' for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashïng.

10 BIG LIES in the U.S. "War on Terror"

1 "Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction."

—Vice President Dick Cheney,

August 2002
No "weapons of mass destruction" were ever found in Iraq. An October 2004 CIA report concluded, "Iraq unilaterally destroyed its undeclared chemical weapons stockpile in 1991" and found "no credible indications that Baghdad resumed production." An unnamed CIA official later said, "Bush didn't give a fuck about the intelligence. He had his mind made up [to go to war]."

2 "I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am President, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank."

—candidate Barack Obama, 2007

Obama expanded U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan and increased the number of bombing raids into Pakistan. As of June 2011, 46,000 U.S. troops occupied Iraq. Under Obama the U.S. has staged bombing raids on six countries. The number of open military bases outside the U.S. has grown to over 1,000. When Obama took office in January 2009 there were 32,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. By December 2009—when this number had grown to 68,000—Obama announced an "Afghan surge" to add over 30,000 U.S. soldiers. Now Obama plans to withdraw the 33,000 "surge troops"—10,000 by the end of 2011 and the rest by the summer of 2012. This means by the end of 2012, there will still be 68,000 troops in Afghanistan—more than twice as many as the 32,000 when Obama took office.

3 "The idea of liberating women, empowering women, encouraging women, educating women in Afghanistan is all part of laying a foundation for lasting peace."

—President George W. Bush,

in an interview on Fox News
While women in Afghanistan living under the Taliban were treated horribly, the U.S. military occupation has in some ways worsened and created new conditions making women vulnerable to exploitation and degradation. In terms of impoverishment, homelessness, and lack of medical care, the situation of Afghan women has deteriorated under the U.S. occupation and the barbaric imposition of Islamic law on Afghan women remains largely unchallenged. August 2009: U.S.-backed Afghan president Karzai signed a law which, among other horrors, allows men to deny food and housing to their wives if the husbands' sexual demands are not met, and prohibits a woman from leaving her home without her husband's permission.

The Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) reported in July 2011, "about 50 women die in childbirth each day in Afghanistan. One in three is physically or sexually abused and the average life expectancy of women is 44 ... more than 85 percent of Afghan women are illiterate, while 70 percent of school-age girls do not attend school for various reasons—conservative parents, lack of security, or fear for their lives."

Speaking about Afghanistan in March 2011, a top Obama official said, "Gender issues are going to have to take a back seat to other priorities."

4 Jessica Lynch "was fighting to the death. She did not want to be taken alive."

—U.S. Army official to assembled media, March 2003

Lynch was part of a small Army convoy attacked by Iraqi resisters. The vehicle she was in overturned and she suffered broken bones, was knocked unconscious, and taken to a local hospital by some Iraqis. A doctor who examined her said, "It was a road traffic accident that caused her wounds. There was not a drop of blood.... There were no bullets or shrapnel or anything like that." At the hospital, he said, "She was given special care, more than the Iraqi patients."

Media reports claimed, "Lynch was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in a daring nighttime raid by U.S. commandos acting on a CIA tip." In fact, the U.S. raid on the hospital actually encountered no opposition. In June 2003, the Washington Post wrote: "This was the single most memorable story of the war, and it had huge propaganda value. It was false, but it didn't get knocked down until it didn't matter quite so much." As Lynch herself said later in 2003 about the hype surrounding her injuries, "It was not true."

5 "Torture is never acceptable, nor do we hand over people to countries that do torture."

—President George W. Bush,

New York Times interview,

January 28, 2005

"I was clear throughout this campaign and was clear throughout this transition that under my administration the United States does not torture."
—President-elect Barack Obama,

January 2009 press conference
It has been clearly documented that the U.S. has tortured many, many prisoners at Guantánamo, its Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and at the Bagram U.S. Air Base. The U.S. has captured and illegally held prisoners and then "rendered" them to dozens of countries to be tortured and interrogated under the direction of U.S. officials. Bush's Justice Department wrote memos sanctioning the use of torture. Under Bush and Obama, countless people have been tortured by the U.S. and at the direction of the United States. In 2010 Bush boasted, "Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. I'd do it again."

6 "The loss of Army Corporal Pat Tillman last week in Afghanistan brought home the sorrow that comes with every loss, and reminds us of the character of the men and women who serve on our behalf."

—President George W. Bush,

May 1, 2004
After 9-11, Tillman walked away from a multimillion-dollar professional football contract to join the U.S. Army. But Tillman increasingly questioned what the U.S. was doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. He began expressing opposition to the U.S. war in Iraq and continued to be outspoken when he was sent to Afghanistan. In April 2004, Tillman was shot to death by U.S. soldiers in what is called "friendly fire." The circumstances of his death remain murky. In 2007 Associated Press reported that doctors who did an autopsy on Tillman said, "it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away" and that a criminal investigation was warranted. No such investigation ever happened and instead Tillman's death was used by Bush and Rumsfeld to promote the kind of mindless patriotism Tillman opposed.

7 "Under this compromise legislation... the President's illegal program of warrantless surveillance will be over."

—Senator Barack Obama,

June 19, 2008
In 2002 George W. Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to eavesdrop on U.S. citizens and foreign nationals in the United States. By 2006 the NSA was collecting phone records of tens of millions of Americans. In 2008 Bush signed into law a bill that legalizes warrantless wiretapping.

Barack Obama, then a U.S. senator and presidential candidate, voted for the bill. Domestic spying has increased during Obama's presidency. The number of federal wiretaps doubled in 2010 from 2009; the Electronic Freedom Foundation said, "Obama has gone two steps further than Bush," and concluded, "essentially, the Obama Administration has claimed that the government cannot be held accountable for illegal surveillance under any federal statutes."

8 "This war in Iraq is a grotesque mistake."

—Democratic Party congressional leader Nancy Pelosi, June 2005

From the first votes in the U.S. Congress to approve the invasion of Iraq, which passed overwhelmingly, to today, when wars in three countries are being led by a Democratic president, the Democrats have, overwhelmingly and as a party, been in full support of the U.S. wars aimed at extending and defending the U.S. empire. Congressional Democrats have approved every military spending measure since 2002.

9 "Our courts have employed habeas corpus with rigor and fairness for more than two centuries, and we must continue to do so as we defend the freedom that violent extremists seek to destroy."

—candidate Barack Obama,

June 2008
Habeas corpus is a judicial mandate in which a prisoner must be brought before a judge to determine whether he/she is legally imprisoned, and if not, released. In 2002 the Bush administration claimed sweeping new police state powers that effectively put an end to habeas corpus.

Hundreds of people seized by U.S. forces under any pretext in Afghanistan and other countries have been denied any right to judicial review. A U.S. Supreme Court ruling said prisoners taken by the U.S. and sent to Guantánamo have the right to a hearing. Bush circumvented this ruling, setting up "military tribunals"—after the pretense of a "legal hearing," prisoners are sent to dungeons other than Guantánamo. In February 2009, a month after Obama took office, his Department of Justice argued in court that military detainees in Afghanistan have no legal right to challenge their imprisonment there, embracing a key argument of former President Bush's legal team.

10 "I can say that the types of operations... that the US has been involved in, in the counter-terrorism realm, that nearly for the past year there hasn't been a single collateral death because of the exceptional proficiency, precision of the capabilities that we've been able to develop."

—John Brennan, Obama's

"counter-terrorism" advisor, on U.S. drone attacks
The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reports that at least 2,992 people have been killed by U.S. drones in Pakistan. This is part of a larger war that has brought massive death and suffering to many people. A Johns Hopkins study published in the British medical journal the Lancet reported that by 2006 there were at least 600,000 deaths in Iraq as a result of the U.S. invasion and war. The number of dead civilians in Afghanistan is unknown, but more than 2.7 million Afghans are refugees. Wholesale and often random killings of civilians are part and parcel of the wars the U.S. is waging.

It is not uncommon to hear these days, from government officials and others, that only 1 percent of the population is in the U.S. military but that this 1 percent is fighting for the freedom of the other 99 percent. The truth, however, is this: That 1 percent, in the military, is in reality fighting for the other 1 percent: the big capitalist-imperialists who run this country—who control the economy, the political system, the military, the media, and the other key institutions—and who dominate large parts of the world, wreaking havoc and causing great suffering for literally billions of people. It is the "freedom" of these capitalist-imperialists—their freedom to exploit, oppress, and plunder—that this 1 percent in the military is actually killing and sometimes dying for.

"What we see in contention here with Jihad on the one hand and McWorld/McCrusade on the other hand, are historically outmoded strata among colonized and oppressed humanity up against historically outmoded ruling strata of the imperialist system. These two reactionary poles reinforce each other, even while opposing each other. If you side with either of these 'outmodeds,' you end up strengthening both.

"While this is a very important formulation and is crucial to understanding much of the dynamics driving things in the world in this period, at the same time we do have to be clear about which of these 'historically outmodeds' has done the greater damage and poses the greater threat to humanity: It is the historically outmoded ruling strata of the imperialist system, and in particular the U.S. imperialists."

Bob Avakian, BAsics 1:28

"In a world marked by profound class divisions and social inequality, to talk about 'democracy'— without talking about the class nature of that democracy and which class it serves—is meaningless, and worse. So long as society is divided into classes, there can be no 'democracy for all': one class or another will rule, and it will uphold and promote that kind of democracy which serves its interests and goals. The question is: which class will rule and whether its rule, and its system of democracy, will serve the continuation, or the eventual abolition, of class divisions and the corresponding relations of exploitation, oppression and inequality."

Bob Avakian, BAsics 1:22

Hitler. Well, we now know what happened to his remains, but for many years, the location of the corpses of Hitler and Eva Braun were kept top secret for fear the site would become a Neo-Nazi place of worship. It wasn’t until 1970 that what was left of the dictator was burned, then dumped into the Biederitz River. A fragment of jawbone still exists, says the Russian State Archives – they keep it to serve as evidence that Hitler really did die. Other historians and researchers question the authenticity of the jawbone, however.


This CULT which has sprung up around Ron Paul is not only a joke, but it is dangerous as well. He is just putting his own spin on the same old shit! Just because he is an 'isolationist' and is againt Ameriks's military sticking their runny noses into everyone elses business, dosn't mean he is some sort of savior! NO, RON PAUL IS NOT THE MASSIAH, come to save AmeriKa from itself. Quite the contrary! He will just create another whole set of problems! Oh, he has some great ideas, i do so must admit! And i agree with him on a whole bunch of things! BUT, like ALL politicians he is a LIAR ! He cannot be trusted! He will say anything to any group of people to get their support. And all this STATES RIGHTS BULLSHIT is delusional ! It was 'states rights' that kept SLAVERY alive for so long! Free states and slave states. So now its 'gay marriage states' and 'anti gay marriage states!' What utter stupidity ! Isn't this The UNITED States of America? A HOUSE DEVIDED CANNOT STAND! Abraham Lincoln knew that! Eventually, just like slavery, anti gay laws will be done away with in EVERY STATE, and enforced by the Federal Government. It is a CRIME, not to allow GAY AMERICAN CITIZENS, their rights as a free peoples ! The laws allowing gay people to marry, should be the same in EVERY state! And eventually it will be so! Ron Paul has a past history of being both anti gay AND racist. Oh MAYBY he has changed his mind! But i doubt it. He is just being careful now in order to get votes from gay people. These politicians are all the same, they just differ in certain matters and they will all lie thru their rotten teeth just to fool you and take you for a bumpy ride, THEIR WAY!! Don't beleive a word! They are ALL liars! Some are better or worse than others, but no matter how you vote, YOU WILL BE SCREWED!!! So just live your life the best you can and be as happy as possible and just hope the walls of BABYLON don't come crashing down on your head! Also remember that once a politician becomes our great LEADER, he is met by a HUGE MEGA POWER BLOCK of multi national companies that literally control EVERYTHING !!! And if you don't do things THIER way, they can arrange something very special, TO GET YOU OUT OF THE WAY !!! Money decides everything! The only possible solution would be a full scale, 'off with their heads ' REVOLUTION! And things would have to get pretty fucking BAD, for that to happen! Most Americans will go on doing what they have always been doing. Vote for what they consider to be the 'lesser of the EVIL' and just hope for the best! My motto toward ALL politicians is this: DIFFERENT ASSHOLE, SAME OLD SHIT! Some of it smells horrible, some of it smells different ( Ron Paul ) some of it dosn't smell as bad as the others!!! But it all STINKS !!! Sincerely, JAYNE COUNTY P.S. The Who have a song that goes, "WE WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN !!!". Nice sentiment, but most AmeriKans are living in a FOOLS PARADISE !!! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY, AND MAY THE BIRD OF PARADISE FLY UP YOUR NOSE !!!! XOXO


4. Remember seeing any old western movies where supposedly the 'Indians' would dig a hole on the desert or in the sand or the dirt in some lost canyon or just outside of the village and stick one of their white captives in it? With just their heads sticking out? Then the 'Indians' would ride their horses over the person's head till their brains would gush out like green hog's brains! I always wondered if the brains were gathered up and whipped up into some good old. 'brains and eggs!!! ' Well, we all gotta eat !!! Or remember that episode of "Tales From The Crypt?" Where the jilted lover dug a hole on the beach and put her cheating spouse in it with just his head sticking out!!! Then the moon would bring in the tide! The waves got closer and closer!!! And the guy would start screaming until finally his gurgling yelling would for evermore be silenced!!!! Well, Sarah my sweet little body less head, what fun it would be to watch you enjoy such a creative way to go!!!!!!! I mean after all, getting shot by a right wing comrade of yours is sooooooo boring!!! I mean we all have heard it all so many times before!!! This gun nut fan of yours that you encouraged, verbally attacked a young girl before for getting an abortion. Screaming at her that she murdered her baby! Oh that must be so wrong but it is perfectly OK to shoot a nine year old girl that got in there way while your fan was trying to rid the world of that evil liberal Democrat JEW!! Like we haven't seen or heard of that kind of behavior from our history books or old classic films about WW11 or Nazi Germany or other criminal states throughout our history, where right wing bigots take over governments and countries to. 'save' all their fellow right wingers from all those mean old Socialists who only want everyone to be treated in a fair and honest way. Everyone to be able to have the basic human right to have decent medical treatment regardless of how much money you make or what race you are or what country you came from or what religion you are or what gender you are or who you choose to marry or what sexuality you were BORN as!!! Excuse me! I thought we were living in a place called America where EVERYONE deserves to be treated equally!!! Now it seems that right wing scum bags have changed our Lady Liberty to Lady Liver Disease! Because that is exactly what your backward bigoted way of thinking is. A LIVER DISEASE!!!! It can no longer filter out the right wing anti GAY and RACIST and anti POOR poison that is now changing our country into a HATEFUL nation of bigots and witch burners from the by gone DARK AGES!!! So let's continue to fantasize about torturing Sarah Palin!!!! Let's let it out! Get it out in satire with a bit of NASTY parody and comedy. That way we don't have to sink to YOUR level Ms. Palin. Of encouraging mentally unstable right wing thugs to go out and murder kids and kill liberals and Jews!!! So only three more ways left to fantasizzzzzzzzze bout torturing SARAH PALIN. Hmmm. Gotta put on that thinking cap!!! Of course I wouldn't stoop to your level Ms. Evil Impale Palin!!! But what FUN this is! And what good THERAPY!!!!! So you don't have too much too worry bout Ms. Palin. I would never be so disgusting to really encourage anyone to do any of these things to you!!! It would be wrong and only make me one of you!!! BUT what pleasure I get in imagining that I am in some Stephen King movie and you are the Wicked Witch Of The West and that a big Russian missile is about to flatten you like a Slavic potato pancake! Or that you drown in a giant bowl of borscht !!! Oh you know! That soup the Slavs make from beets!!! It's the color of blood which really is YOUR color!!!!! Yes that would be another cool, twenty three skid do, way of torturing you!!! Oh you kid!! Your state would hit the skids! If the Russians blew off your lid!!! Melt your snow! We all would know! That you just BLOW!!! So! On on to number 3!!! Let's get our creative juices flowing!!!! And remember Miss Thing!!! The pen is mightier than your penis envy gun that you use to murder animals and encourage your right wing psycho fans with! And Jayne County is coming for you!!! With pen, email, iPhone and Internet in hand!!! And I NEVER give up!!! AND I am not ALONE! Be afraid!!! Be VERY AFRAID!!!
3. This is a short one. ALONG CAME JONES!!! By The Coasters! So he grabbed her!!!! HE DID??? Then he tied her to the railroad tracks!!! HE DID??? And then a train started coming!!!! And then!!! And then!!! HICCUP!!! And then along came Jones!!! To save her!!! Oooooops!!! Too bad!!! Jones can't save you this time!!!! He was here in this country 'illegally!' Although his ancestors have lived here thousands of years! His land was stolen and the AmeriKan government expelled him as being 'Illegal!' And all because of bigots like you using all that patriotism and illegal immigrant bullshit as an excuse to persecute and make other human beings miserable! Oh my illegal JONES has been deported and here come the train bitch!!! And it ain't no Soul Train!!! And it ain't no LOVE Train either! It's a real train and you is tied to the track and you can't get free!!! This ain't no magic act and you is gettin' cut in Half!!! TORTURE time you third rate beauty HO!!!! "And you know, something is happening here, but you don't know what it is! Do you, Misses Palin???
2. GIVE SARAH PALIN a heart attack by suggesting that maybe her upstanding Christian upbringing of her picture perfect Christian HO daughters may actually really do the Christian thing and get married FIRST before having anymore little right wing bastard bigot brats. And we've all heard of what snotty little anti Gay bitch whores, Sarah Palin's HARLOT daughters are! Family Values?? Ha!!! Lying, hypocritical little whores!!! MS. Palin has done a really shitty job of raising her selfish, UGLY humped backed, sea whales she calls her daughters !!! I've seen prettier faces on a cornbread battered fried catfish than on those pathetic ugly little turtles!!! One of them is so humped backed that you could open up a ski resort on her back!!! And she has no neck!!! What did Sarah Palin do? Fuck a giant sea turtle and push evolution back a half million years?!? And what man in his right mind would want to fuck Sarah Palins reptilian daughters!!!??? Just go down to Pet Smart and buy yourself a pet SNAKE. After all that is what the Palin family really are! SNAKES. Rumor has it that some of Ms. Palin's relatives were actually hanging out in The Garden Of Eden. And that her relatives were so ugly that Satan himself handed the apple back to poor Sarah's folk cause even Lucifer himself was too repulsed to get his giant snake hard enough to stick it up any of Ms. Palin's relatives holes!!! ANY of their holes! Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie! Fuck Sarah Palin and you will die! Be cast out of Paradise for ADULTERY! Of course Sarah's daughter has money and that would be the only reason anyone, male, female, or LIZARD would want to fuck them!!!!! So let's give Sarah Palin a heart attack and see if we can find something at least half alive that would want to give her hump backed whale, fried catfish of a daughter a good fucking AFTER they are married and settle in with a fine, decent, Christian marriage! Approved of by GOD herself!!! Sarah Palin is having a heart attack!!! OMG!!! She is laying across the road next to a poor little possum that's been hit by an electric car! Someone please do something to help! Push that bigoted bitch out of the road in to the ditch so I can get to that poor little possum and take it to the Vet!!!
1. Well it's really hard to think up another way to torture Sorry Sarah, after all those other anti Sarah Sewage, rants and raves! But the way I think that our Salty Sorry Sarah can be best tortured is for her to be SHUNNED by all decent, free thinking people everywhere! She already is a festering sore spot in her own party! And this latest incident, where she has made such an embarrrrrrasssssssing display of her ignorance and insensitivity, has even RepubliKKKans rolling their eyes and realizing for once and for all , that she has absolutely NO CHANCE in Heaven or HELL of ever becoming Dictator of The U. S. A!!! Thank U Isis!!! Praise be to Asteroth!!! Help me Bast!!! The fact that this nasty, piece of rat turd, is the biggest LOSER on the face of earth or in our entire Galaxy, is enough to torture her for the rest of her miserable life! And to top all that off , she is a sorry quitter! She ran out on her own Governorship! Whose to say that she wouldn't do the same thing as President! ?!? This pathetic creature is one huge toilet bowl full of pink and green, psychedelic shit! She needs to be flushed down the sewage pipes along with all the rest of her cave dwelling, flatworm friends! Total loser!!! She has quite simply BLOWN it!!! Of course if she did run for president it would be the best news for the Dems ever! It would assure them another term! Sarah Sewage running for president is a sure win for the disappointing Dems! So Sarah is at this moment being tortured to death!!! She finally realizes her chances of ever being considered a serious choice for her Neanderthal RepubliKKKan cohorts are as slim as a skinny raccoon turd! I hope Ms. Palin will finally fuck off back to cold, ice caked AlasKKKa!!! Maybe with luck she will book herself a very long skying trip! Right off the fucking planet! I here it's extremely cold on non planet Pluto, so I bet the skying there would be simply fantabulous!!! Or better yet, maybe we could pray to Cat Goddess Bast, that Miss Ice Queen, will get lost or fall off a giant polar cap, and become encased in a block of ice for about 50 thousand years or more, only to be discovered, much to their horror, by future super intelligent beings! They could thaw out Ms. Palin like a giant Mastadon, and be totally shocked and repulsed by her backward way of thinking! They would be shocked at the sheer ignorance and low intelligence level of this cave dwelling human worm from man's ancient past! Poor Sarah!!! You are such a poor misunderstood, TORTURED soul! Oh excuse me! I forgot! Sarah Palin dosn't have a soul!!! She's an empty shell of an excuse, for a human being! No soul! No class! No brain! And even The Great And Powerful OZ can't help the poor TORTURED baby wolf murderer!!! Sarah Palin! You are a pathetic, tortured, BITCH FROM HELL!!! Go back to AlasKKKa, you smelly hairy Mastadon from the Crustykuntapationonic Ice Age!!! I spit on your ice cubes!!!


10. Tie the bitch down on a cold cement floor and cover her with Elmer's Glue! Lower a 50 inch flat screen TV just three feet from her ice caked, Elmer's Glue of Olay face. Play footage of the Arizona shootings over and over again, until she cries out to JESUS to forgive her for inciting right wing hatred and violence toward normal , sane acting Liberals, Progressives and nine year old children! Maybe Jesus will take pity on her foul smelling soul and commute her sentence in Hell to only three years of community service working with drug addicts, people with HIV and the poor and displaced!!! And cleaning out the toilets down at the local GLBT Community Center! May Jesus BEAT DOWN this nasty BIGOTED bitch with His true Christian LOVE! Something that Ms. Palin, who 'claims' to be a Christian, knows nothing about!!!
9. Tie Miss Right Wing Fruit Cake, Elephant Walk On Her Face, in to a mock electric chair! Only this time, force her to watch Michael Moore films and Bill Maher and Keith Olbermann shows off of You Tube for hours and hours on end!!! When she screams out that she can't take it anymore, pour a full bottle of amyl nitrate (Poppers) up her nose! Then crank up Patti Smith on full column singing 'Ask The Angels!' Ask the angels if they are calling for Sarah Palin to stop encouraging right wing GUN NUTS to murder innocent children and JEWISH DEMOCRATS!!! And then to add insult to injury use the anti Semitic term 'blood lible!' A term this ignorant bitch used that is associated with those who accuse the Jews of murdering Christ! The Nazis used it against the Jews while murdering SIX MILLION of them!!! Ask The Angels if THEY are calling for Sarah Palin to be thrown into The Lake Of Fire along with The Anti Christ (Glenn Beck) Satan (Rush Limbaugh) and The Great False Prophet (Fox Spews!) ASK THE ANGELS!!
8. Skin Sarah Palin alive!!! Tie barbed wire around her big (Big Foot) toes! Turn her upside down! Smear honey and rotten fig preserves all over her smooth, freshly skinned, under flesh! Then slowly bring her down and dip her head first, into a giant hill of ARMY ANTS!!! After the sweet little ants have stuffed themselves like little RepubliKKKan pigs and stored enough away for many a rainy day, gather up some of the overstuffed little dickens, cover them with chocolate and serve them up as a delicious Sweet and Sarah treat at the next RepubliKKKan get together!!! And don't worry about anyone finding out about you stuffing your faces!!! No one will be able to tell anyway, under those WHITE SHEETS!!!
7. Take Sarah Palin and strip her naked. Take her up in a helicopter, over the snow capped hills of Alaska. (Give that fucking state back to Russia!!! "Oh I can see it from my retarded back yard! Just behind my bright chewing gum pink trailer!!!) What is this? The fucking re make of Pink Flamingos starring Shit Eating Champion, Sarah Palin!!?? Anyway once you got her naked in the copter, toss the baby wolf murdering, my gun is my substitute for a PENIS slut, out of the helicopter on to the freezing snow below, right slap dab in the middle of a WOLF PACK!!!! Let her RUN WITH THE WOLVES!!! Then let the guys up in the copter swoop down with their GUNS, and start shooting!!! Get her!!! Get her!!!! Just like she did to those poor little baby wolves!!! While they were running with their mothers in the freezing snow and ice , this MONSTER of a sub human Neanderthal ape, SHOT them down!!! Oh that is real hunting huh??? Swooping down on defenseless baby wolves and murdering them just for fun! Oh Miss Queen of Evil, you are such a MAN with your MAGIC PENIS GUN!!! Or maybe you are some kind of new alien, hermaphrodite life form!!! A KUNT GUN with legs!!!
6. Tell Sarah Palin that they are doing a re make of the film 'Sybil!' And she would be perfect for the part!!! All those hundreds of different separate personalities!!! The original 'Three Faces Of Sarah!!!' When one personality puts her kunt in her mouth she can always blame one of her others 'FACES!!!' How convenient! Of course this is just a trick to trap the Kook From Planet Dumb Dumb Ville, so we can once again torture the backward, shit eating trailer tramp redneck from her AlasKKKan Poodle Pee Pee Pad!!! So let the torture begin! We will rehearse the upside down, swinging enema scene, over and over again until every single tiny little speck of shit has been cleaned and squirted out Ms. Palin's scrubbed out asshole!!! Her colon will become so swollen that they will produce enough chitlins for any self respecting, gun toting, rabbit shooting, moose screwing, intestine eating, cave squatting, inbred AlasKKKan to feast upon until it's once again time to start roasting up those whole turkey fried baby wolves!!! This scene in the film will thrill all of Ms. Palin's fans and enemies alike! The sight of Sarah Palin swinging upside down across a pretty painted yellow and pink Martha Stewart styled country kitchen, with a bright orange enema bag full of mint julip lemonade, stuck up her Grand Canyon will be a sight for anyone's sore eyes!!! Has torture ever been more fun, I ask
5. Torture!!! Torture!!! We could send her to Guantanamo Bay!!! Did I spell that right? Oh who cares??! Just lock the baboon up with all those 'other terrorists! But I am not sure which ones are worse! Them or her!!! And there would be a MAJOR problem!!! Where the HELL on one of those naked human pyramids, would we put our dear Holy Highness??? We couldn't put her on the very bottom! The poor X beauty queen, whore and medium priced hooker, would be crushed under all those other naked bodies! Besides, it would be just plain rude!!! Why, she can't speak a word of ARABIC! And if she dares to utter the name of Allah, she would be decapitated and her head used as a bowling ball or a potted plant holder to grow some really cool Cuban WEED man!!!!! Well, yawn! I suppose we could put her at the top! Yes! Right UP THERE! As Andy Warhol used to love saying! That Sarah Palin, why she's really way UP THERE!!! Right up there at the top of the Naked Terrorist Pyramid!!! The top star at Guantanamo Bay!!! Did I spell that right? Oh, who gives a fuck?!? As long as we can get out our cameras and take holiday pics of top banana Sarah Palin, at the top of that Rude Nude Dude Mayan Temple!!! With one naked Nazi Bitch sitting on top of the world!!! Up on top of The Leaning Tower of Circumcised Penises!!! Oh no! Do we have to put a bag over her head??? We wouldn't be able to see those rosy red cheeks of hers! Well, there would be other cheeks to gaze at I suppose, but I for one, would miss the sight of those Buddy Holly look alike glasses and that off shade of Walmart lipstick she wears!!! So! Sarah Palin, sent off to Guantanomowhatever Bay, and put up on top of a naked human pyramid! Torture enough? Naw ! I don't think so!!! Let's torture her some more!!!!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Don't Trust This Face!

A brief overview of the extraterrestrial watchers, custodians and manipulators of mankind

Aliens. Some appear to be cute and almost cuddly while others strike sheer terror in the hearts of men. The major players in the battle for the future of the human race and their hidden agendas and tactics are finally exposed.

The world is slowly being conditioned to accept the presence of alien beings in our reality. Fifty years ago, people committed suicide rather than face the possibility that the Earth had been visited by aliens from outer space. The radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds" revealed the hysteria which the general populace would experience if faced with that scenario. For that reason, the powers that be have adopted a policy of slow desensitization to the alien presence and over a fifty year time span have made the face of the alien gray a fashion accessory.

Exactly who are these alien entities and what is their purpose in visiting our planet? Where do they come from? How did they get here? Above all else, are they angels or benevolent space brothers, here to assist us in our ascension or are they demons or cosmic cattle ranchers, herding us to the slaughter?

Before we analyze the specific alien groups, remember that the generalizations we present do not necessarily apply to each individual member of an alien species, unless that species shares a collective consciousness (which the majority of the ones we will discuss do). It would be irrational to stereotype the motives of an entire race of individuals just as it is irrational to pre-judge all humans as being "sinful," or to suggest that all members of a race or skin color are lazy or evil. In the absence of a collective consciousness it is best to apply the admonition "by their fruits you will know them" when judging the actions of the individual being.

In order to judge actions we must first establish a standard of measurement to determine relative "good" or "evil." As Luciferians and human beings, the standard we raise is that of "life, liberty and happiness of the individual." Placing the value of self above the value of the collective or the group. In this manner we can know if the actions of an entity are good (contribute to the happiness and liberty of the individual) or evil (disregard the individual, enslaving him to the demands of the whole or the will of "The One" i.e., God). This standard is more fully explained in A Brief Overview of Objectivism and Freethought

The Elohim

A.K.A. The Anunnaki, The Vedas, The Anakim, The Nefilim, Jehovah, The Sons of God

This alien race made its first appearance on Earth millions of years ago. Coming from a planet in our own solar system which orbits the sun once every few thousand years (also called "the 12th planet"), they have genetically altered their DNA to stop the aging process and appear to be "immortal."

They mixed their DNA with primitive man in order to create a slave race to assist them with their mining efforts on this planet. Some of the members of this race attempted to aid the humans, giving them the ability to reproduce and attempting to remove the aging process from their DNA. These helpers of mankind rebeled against the plans of the leaders of the Elohim who wanted to keep man subservient. In doing this, they, along with any who attempt to free mankind from the enslavement of the manipulators of mankind, were labeled "EVIL." One of the few alien species we can trust to assist us in our battle for liberty are these rebel "Sons of God" (Genesis 6:4) or Nordics who have broken from the reigns of the collective and illuminated the path of rational self interest for man.

The original Elohim used genetic and social engineering to attempt to keep man subservient. After realizing that man could become a threat to the agenda of the Elohim at the tower of Babel, individual members of the Elohim built congregations and cities of followers (slaves). The recruitment of Abraham in the Bible by "the Lord" (Genesis 12:1-3, 17:7-8) was an example of how the Elohim chose humans and agreed to "be their God." Numerous other religious systems of belief were established by the Elohim in order to keep man divided against himself and thus unable to work together for their own betterment. For example, the "angel" Gabriel established the Jewish religion and then turned around and established the rival religion of Islam. The gods of the Hindus, Greeks, Summerians, American Indians and others were also established by the Elohim.

The Elohim are members of the Galactic Confederation, a group of similarly oriented alien races, whose mission it is to align all planetary races with the will of the collective or "The One." Their ultimate agenda is altruistic obedience to the rule of The One. The Bible speaks of a time when the entire world will be subject to the will of The One ("every knee shall bow to me" - Romans 14:11, Isaiah 45:23). Strict obedience without question is the hallmark of "righteousness" according to the writings of the Elohim. As we show throughout our web site, the will of the Elohim does not support the good of the human race and must be aggressively resisted if we are to survive.

The Reptilians

Originating from various locations to include a region of space called Alpha Draconis, these include reptiles which reside outside our vibrational frequency (the 4th dimension) as well as evolved Earth reptiles which escaped the cataclysm which destroyed the dinosaurs.

Extraterrestrial Reptilians

The Draconians are an extraterrestrial race of reptile which come from the Alpha Draconis star system. In general the draconians are intergalactic invaders, seeking out and infiltrating into the societies of other life forms. They prefer to manipulate society from behind the scenes and will openly invade and conquer only when they become threatened by the technological advancement of their prey. It is highly likely that some of the Draconians work alongside of the Interdimensional Reptilians as allies. Both types of alien entities are able to utilize the psychic energies emitted from the brains of humans during intensely emotional experiences. The reptilians of both this dimension and the 4th dimension feed off of fear and panic from humans. They also possess the ability to confuse humans by projecting a mental image, making themselves appear human (as Men In Black) or clouding the memory of any who encounter them.

When the Draconians predict that the civilization they have infiltrated is approaching the state of evolution where their technological ability makes the reptiles' covert operations subject to compromise, they launch an overt invasion fleet in the form of a Planetoid/Asteroids base station or mother ship. (Note: Some people theorize that the reptilian mother ship locates and follows closely behind comets heading in the same general direction, using the gravitational field to pull the planetoid along through space. The comet's body also acts as a stellar debris impact shield and prevents any approaching civilization from observing their mother ship's advance. The Heaven's Gate cult misinterpreted channeled alien propoganda and believed that the comet Hale Bopp was this invasion fleet. For more details see Jesus of Borg)

In between invasions, the majority of the reptilian population on the mother ship live in a state of hibernation. A contingency of reptilians manage the daily operations of the craft and maintain hibernation chambers while awaiting the invasion order. The reptilians on the planet's surface ensure the continued secrecy of their presence, carry out abductions of various life forms on the surface of the planet, and monitor the technological advances of the surface inhabitants. They also introduce their reptilian genetic code into whatever species displays traits they want to manipulate, and initiates a program of genetic crossbreeding. Some of the species of Greysand humanoid Nordics have been invaded and assimilated in this manner.

From their underground bases, they set the stage for the mother's ship invasion by establishing a network of human-reptilian crossbred infiltrates within various levels of the surface culture's military industrial complexes, government bodies, religions, UFO/paranormal groups, and fraternal (priest) orders, etc. These crossbreeds, some unaware of their reptilian genetic "mind-control" instructions, act out their subversive roles as "reptilian agents", setting the stage for an reptilian led alien invasion. Just prior to planetary approach, the large reptilian population aboard the planetoid awakens from their hibernation and prepares for battle. When the invasion takes place, it is from above and below the planets surface. Strange craft, piloted by reptilians, greys and human-reptilian agents, descend from the clouds while others ascend to the skies from the underworld of caverns and sub-cities, overwhelming the surface cultures in a totally unsuspecting manner.

The reptilian species, like other races which share a collective consciousness, communicate telepathically. Their advanced telepathic ability allows them to be able to utilitze energies emitted by the brains of other species.

At least one of the Draconian races possess leathery wings which have been mistaken for hoods or cloaks by abductees. This race stands around 8 feet tall, dwells underground and comes out at night. They have been labeled "mothmen," and is the source for mythologies concerning angels, demons, vampires, gargoyles, valkyries and other winged beings.

Different extraterrestrial reptilian species have different agendas but the majority of them focus on domination and exploitation of alien races and their planetary resources. Their viscious hostility and blatant disregard for the individual rights of others makes them a mortal enemy to mankind.

Interdimensional Reptilians

Interdimensional reptilians reside outside of our physical plane or dimension. They are composed of matter which vibrates at a frequency which is out of synch with the world our senses can perceive. It is theorized that this altered vibrational frequency (sometimes called "sub-space") is an astral plane where energy demons dwell or is where the energy from our soul matrix goes after our physical bodies die. In the absence of further evidence we will merely report these theories and not speculate on their validity.

The interdimensional reptilians are able to alter the vibrational frequency which seperates our dimension and theirs (also called the 4th dimension) in areas where nuclear testing has taken place due to alterations in the fabric of time-space. Some groups of interdimensional reptilians are able to freely enter and leave our dimension through portals that they create. Some of these portals have been torn by the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) which accompany nuclear weapons testing. The appearance of interdimensional reptilians and their vehicles around nuclear test sites supports this premise. It is also possible that extraterrestrial reptilians are using the 4th dimensional vibrational flux as a means of transportation. Other groups of interdimensional beings are unable to enter our world as easily and must rely on 3rd dimensional agents to affect change in this dimension.

The greatest threat from the interdimensional beings centers on their need for the energies provided from emotional responses and their ability to manipulate the suggestive human consciousness. Through tools such as religion, nationalism, racism, and other emotionally charged conditions, they are able to provoke humans through stress, anger, guilt, and most of all FEAR, to engage in warfare against their fellow man, creating a vicious cycle of even more intense human emotions through the tragic results of these conflicts. The increasing number of senseless shootings at schools, day care centers and postal facilities is a direct result of the hunger of the reptilians. The emotional responses to reptilian orchestrated religious worship, global conflict, genocide, drug usage, sexual perversions and violence in general all provide these "psychic vampires" or "energy leeches" with a veritable cornicopia of energy to feast on. It's time we closed the buffet line.

Terrestrial Reptilians

65 million years ago the Earth was struck by an asteroid which brought about the extinction of the majority of the world's living dinosaurs. There were, however, some species which escaped extinction by dwelling underground in caverns and labyrinths beneath the earth's surface. The image on the left is what modern science theorized one of these evolved reptiles might look like today. This creature is strikingly similar to ones which have been identified as living in underground bases in New Mexico and across the world.

The velociraptor received global attention with the success of the "Jurrasic Park" movies. This dinosaur was able to communicate via ultrasonic means and may have possessed a form of "telepathic" capability. If the cunning velociraptor has been evolving underground for the last 65 million years, it is only reasonable that man's legends would contain references to dragonmen or serpentmen. The role and agenda of the terran reptilians in the cosmic conspiracy is currently the subject of much debate.

The Greys

The most commonly encountered alien species is known as the "Greys" due to the greyish color of their skin. There are several species of Greys which have interacted with mankind in one form or other during our history. The Greys share several common characteristic traits to include a telepathic genetic/technological collective consciousness and the inability to feel emotion.

Zeta Reticuli Greys

The Zeta Reticuli Greys originate from Zeta Reticulan, a star system which is near the constellation Orion. The average between 3 and 4 feet in height. Whereas humans have evolved from primates, the Greys have evolved from a cetacean or dolphin like life form. Just as humanity was genetically altered by the Elohim to be used as slaves, the Greys were genetically altered and advanced for the purposes of their "Gods" who we will call "The Masters." The Greys were not as fortunate as humanity however, because there was no rebel activity to liberate them from the grasp of the collective will of the Masters as there was with us.

The Masters mixed their DNA with that of the evolving cetaceans from Zeta Reticulan and created mules which were unable to reproduce (just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden). They also genetically altered the digestive systems of the Greys to make them more efficient as slaves. The Greys no longer have a functional reproductive or digestive tract because of the genetic manipulations of the Masters. They now absorb nutrients and secrete wastes through their skin. This genetic variance is of great value to the Masters since much less space is required for food storage and waste processing which makes them ideal for use as slaves who are engineered to work in the limited area of a spacecraft. The nutrients the Greys require are found in high concentrations in mucous membranes which is why they have been mutilating cattle (and humans to a lesser known degree). To "eat" they soak in vats of nutrients which are full of the secretions from human and animal body parts.

To reproduce, the Greys must be cloned. Because DNA begins to breakdown after being repeatedly cloned, in order for the Greys to keep their species from dying, they must integrate new strands of DNA into their own. Until they are able to create a hybrid Grey life form which possesses the ability to reproduce, they will continue to require outside sources of DNA to maintain their species. The Greys have been abducting humans and performing experiments on their reproductive systems in order to create a strain of Grey with reproductive capability.

From the time of their enslavement, the Greys have been at the mercy of more technologically advanced species. One of these species is the Draconian reptile race. The reptilians conquered the Zeta Reticli Greys centuries ago and forced them into slavery. The reptilians created a robotic race of Grey clones by taking advantage of the telepathic capability of the Greys. By implanting telepathic amplifyers into the brains of the Greys they were able to tie the minds of the Greys into an artificial central computer. This created an artificially controllable "collective consciousness" whereby the Greys can be monitored and controlled by their Masters. The mother brain for the Greys which are in our solar system was what the Russian Phobos probe uncovered in 1989, leading to the destruction of that probe by the Grey defense system.

The Zeta Reticuli Greys have been in communication telepathically with human channelers, feeding them conflicting propoganda to mislead trusting humans into accepting them as our "saviors." They are the agents of their Masters, deceiving humanity through religious "visions," (such as at Fatima) prophecies and miracles in an attempt to gain our trust. Once the reptilian mother ship arrives from Zeta Reticulan, these same Greys will appear as ANGELS, inviting those who desire to escape the destruction of the earth into the clouds where they will meet with their "master;" JESUS. Promising a NEW AGE of peace and harmony with all of mankind attached to the ONE just as they are, their true goal is the annihilation of human individuality and its unpredictability. Since they do not possess emotions, they see human unpredictability as their greatest threat. The assimilation of individuality into the collective of THE ONE must be resisted if our race is to remain free.

Belletrax Greys

These small aliens have been the subject of tales of fairies, gnomes, elves, pixies, and other "little people." They come from the same genetic roots as the Zeta Reticuli, but little more is known about their race. They possess the technological ability to alter the fabric of space, giving them the ability to pass through solid matter and alter the relative size of objects. They are usually between 6 and 18 inches in height.

Orion Greys

This race of Greys stands between 7 and 8 feet tall (similar to the Nephilim) and they tend to have a more developed nose than other Grey species. When they are observed they appear to be in charge of groups of shorter robotic Greys. Some abductees have detected emotional responses (sympathy, loathing, disgust, etc.) coming from these tall beings. The Orion Greys have also been seen working alongside various reptilian species. As in all situations, the actions of individual members of a species cannot be taken to reflect the intent of all members of that species. The evidence suggests that some members of the Orion Greys may be sympathetic to the plight of humanity and may offer technological assistance in the upcoming alien confrontation.

The Nordics

There are several human-like species which interact with humanity. These include the Elohim, Pleiadians, Venusians, Vegans, Lyrans, Arcturians, Orions, Sirians, and others. Our race shares a common genetic ancestry with many of these species.

There have been numerous mental or "spiritual" contacts between these supposed friends of man. Some claim to be members of a galactic federation, whose purpose is to protect all life and aid in our ascension to the next age. If they are truly the galactic policemen they claim to be, then by their fruits we will know them. If they are merely another ploy by an invasion force, we will also be aware of, and prepared for, that possibility. Our ancestors tell of a race of human nordics (the ancestors of the Scandinavians) who escaped the wrath of the Elohim at the time of the Flood by leaving the planet with a group of Nefilim. These Nordics may be our greatest allies in the approaching reptilian invasion. Time will only tell.

When analyzing the motives of these alien races, we must remember to judge their activities based on whether they are supportive of our individual rights and our quest for life, liberty, and happiness, or whether they desire to enlist us in their quest for oneness. We cannot allow the glitter of membership in the Intergalactic Federation to distract us from our own best interest. Objectivism must be our standard. Altruism and sacrifice must not replace rational self-interest. Repeatedly, the lure of ONENESS is used by tyrants to stifle the questions of the rational few. It is for this same reason that the Bible commands us not to question God. The common theme of the "spiritually concerned" aliens is this loss of individuality and reasoning ("Lean not on your own understanding." - Proverbs 3:5). Anytime we are approached by anyone who wants us to join their collective, we must remember the ultimate goal of this collective is to create a void of sameness where the only will which exists is that of the collective ONE, and the elite few in charge are the dictators of that will. Question Authority. Resistance is NOT futile.
