Cheney's Limited Nuclear War would have been a horrid reality.

July 31st, 2005

LaRouche on British Radio Stop (click here) Cheney's 'Guns of August' Nuclear War Plan

Lyndon LaRouche was interviewed by telephone on Aug. 1, 2005 by James Whale, on talkSPORT, which is billed as the number-one commercial radio station in Britain. Whale previously interviewed LaRouche on March 18, 2003, on the eve of the Iraq War; he also spoke to EIR representatives on Nov. 2, 2004, Election Night.

Q: ... Lyndon LaRouche has warned of Cheney's "Guns of August," that they threaten the world. And the last time I spoke with Lyndon LaRouche, I did feel quite worried afterwards. Lyndon, I hope you're not going to depress me quite so much this time.

LaRouche: I don't intend to depress people, I intend to try to prevent some horrible things from happening.

Q: I think it's about time that some of the horrible things in the world were stopped from happening, Lyndon. I tell you.

LaRouche: I agree, quite. The point is, we've known for some time, that Cheney has a war plan, it's a nuclear war plan. The pretext is Iran. And the run-up for the Iran business, which is probably scheduled for this month—most probably—is pretty much an echo of what was done in the case of the run-up to Iraq....

Below is a depiction of all the nuclear tests ever conducted on Earth. These are nuclear drills to prepare a nation for a potential nuclear holocaust. What a joke.

Demand Nuclear Non-Proliferation. There is no such thing as a limited nuclear war and in the USA there is absolutely no preparedness 'enough' to actually protect the populous of this nation. It is easy for Cheney to huff and buff and blow the house down when he would be hiding with Alice in the rabbit hole.

The military (click here) has stripped the certification and security clearances of 34 officers at a Montana missile base after uncovering what it believes is the largest cheating scandal ever to hit the nuclear force, Air Force officials told NBC News Wednesday.
The officers, all assigned to the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, are accused of apparently texting answers to each other on a monthly proficiency exam or knew that the cheating was going on and didn't report it, the officials said.
The monthly exam tested the officers' knowledge of the missile launch systems. It was administered in August and September 2013.
Air Force Chief of Staff General Mark Welsh said the officers shared the exam "electronically.” Text messages were involved, he said. He would not expand on the exact circumstances of the alleged cheating, citing an ongoing investigation....

Buffer zones are everywhere in our society for the reason of protecting people from danger.

If the Supreme Court strikes down the buffer zones that assist patient safety at abortion clinics, then it threatens buffer zones anywhere.

JAN. 15, 2014

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court (click here) appeared evenly divided on Wednesday as it heard arguments in a First Amendment challenge to a Massachusetts law that created buffer zones around abortion clinics in the state.

But a significant piece of data was missing: Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who almost certainly holds the crucial vote, asked no questions. His earlier opinions suggest, however, that he is likely to provide the fifth vote to strike down the law....

The court’s four more liberal members asked questions indicating that they believed that the 35-foot buffer zones created by the 2007 law were a valid response to decades of harassment and violence at abortion clinics in Massachusetts, including a shooting rampage at two in 1994....

Police barriers create buffer zones. They won't be legal anymore? There are members of the Supreme Court that actually believe police barriers are not important tools for citizen safety. There are members of the Supreme Court that actually believe 'the social order' established with barriers and buffer zones are not important and they are willing to remove them.

To the right is the Supreme Court building. When they are in session it is necessary for police to establish a buffer zone when protesters are present. You mean the Supreme Court has no appreciation of buffer zones? 

Maybe it will be legitimate for police only.

Police officers enforce federal court-ordered buffer zone outside Buffalo (N.Y.) GYN Womenservices Clinic in April.


BOSTON — A bill (click here) that would create a 25-foot protest-free buffer zone around Massachusetts clinics that perform abortions has made it out of committee and is headed to the Senate.
Members of the Criminal Justice Committee voted 9-8 yesterday to approve the measure and 11-6 to send it to the state Senate.
"It's a victory," said state Sen. Susan Fargo, D-Lincoln, a sponsor of the bill.
In the second vote, all six Senators voted to send it to the House and all 11 representatives chose to send it to the Senate....

There are people in prison that have murdered at abortion clinics. They have used guns and bombs. One citizen, Eleanor McCullen wants to talk to the people going into abortion clinics in a demand for freedom of speech. That is not only naive, it is proven to be dangerous. 

Ms. McCullen is a layman. She is not a physician, nurse or any other health worker that brings a unique message to those walking in safety to their appointment inside an abortion clinic. Ms. McCullen wants to be a friend with good words to complete strangers. She ranks somewhere among the Hare Krishna handing out flowers at airports.

Ms. McCullen should do what everyone else does when they want to be heard over objections by barriers set up by authorities that protect citizens. GET A MICROPHONE!

Japan seeks to rid Earth of space junk.

Do you believe there is that much garbage surrounding Earth? There is so much garbage in space the launches are threatened. 

There are around 22,000 objects in orbit that are big enough for officials on the ground to track and countless more smaller ones that could do damage to human-carrying spaceships and valuable satellites

This junk (click here) – which can include anything from old rockets, abandoned satellites to missile shrapnel - will soon make it difficult for spacecraft to leave the planet.

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has now teamed up with Nitto Seimo, a company that manufactures fishing equipment, to build a ‘magnetic net’ that can fish out space debris....

Tesla expects their vehicle to reach more consumers dependent on less costs in about three years.

Tesla Motors is using over-the-air software updates to quickly fix the sort of problems that often arise when bringing a new car to market. This forward-looking approach is an important part of the company’s success (see “How Tesla is Driving Electric Car Innovation”).
Today the National Highway Safety Administration officially published two recall announcements, one from Tesla Motors and one from GM. Both are related to problems that could cause fires. In the case of GM, trucks left idling can overheat and catch fire—eight fires have been reported. In Tesla’s case, an overheating charger plug seems have to have been the cause of a fire in a garage (it’s not clear if the problem had to do with miswiring of the wall charger, damage to the plug, or something else).

Both problems can be addressed with software updates–in Tesla’s case, the software detects charging problems and decreases charging rates to avoid overheating (GM hasn’t provided details). Owners of 370,000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups will need to find time to take their pickups to the dealer to get the software fixed. But because of its ability to send software updates to its vehicles wirelessly, the 29,222 Tesla Model S electric cars that were affected have already been fixed. (While Tesla says the software update addresses the issue, it is also mailing Tesla owners new charger plugs that have a thermal fuse designed to provide another layer of safety.)...


Republicans love to state pure capitalism at any cost is best.

It doesn't matter the venue of economic greed, the reason is always the same. 

"If the USA doesn't do it then Russia and China will."


The statement is "If the USA doesn't to it, then the USA doesn't do it and seek better solutions."

Isn't capitalism suppose to capture a market that is exclusive so nothing competes? Yes?


So, the USA needs to capture the energy market in new technology that PREVENTS carbon emissions into the troposphere. A new market. An exclusive market. A market built of conscience and moral content.

Carbon fuels are not moral fuels and the producers have no conscience except for the cash in their pockets that pay for legislators.

Murkowski wants to seek an export market for oil condensates.

There is much confusion (click here) about the terms “shale oil” and “oil shale”.  The two are often used interchangeably, but, in fact are very different.  Oil shale is an organic-rich sedimentary rock that contains kerogen.  Kerogen-rich rock must be heated at extremely high temperatures (950 degrees F or 500 degrees Celsius) in order to “process” it into liquid oil.  Oil shale is expensive to mine, as it is more complex than conventional oil recovery. The oil substances in oil shale are solid and cannot be pumped directly out of the ground.

She wants to seek more production of carbon fuels by increasing the demand for 'making' oil from rock. It isn't enough she wants to export natural gas and coal, she wants to see condensates as a 'nice surprise.' She wants to deregulate everything and allow high carbon dioxide emissions OUTSIDE the USA.

Think Halliburton.

Gas oilnaphtha and other relatively light hydrocarbons (with some dissolved hydrocarbon gases such as butane and propane) which remain liquid at normal temperature and pressure. Recovered mainly from gas reservoirs, condensates are very similar to light stabilized crude oil and are used as feedstock for oil refining and other petrochemical industries.

The only people that consider condensate a 'dangerous good' is the petroleum industry.

Condensate is considered a “dangerous good”, and is classified as a highly toxic substance by the federal government. It is highly flammable, and under certain conditions, explosive. It is toxic in its liquid form, and vapours are extremely toxic also.

The use of the word 'condensates' is arbitrary. It is a grade of oil derived from some source in the world of petroleum. The reason there is liquid oil in the ground is because of carbon material that devolved to oil UNDER PRESSURE.

"Condensates" tend to be lighter in color, too, all the way to water-clear and often to straw-yellow or light green, though some are deep black. "Oils" run a broad range of colors from deep black to light straw, with varying tints of green, brown, red, and even blue.

As to price, the "sweet spot" is somewhere in the middle of the range (the price you hear on the news is for either "light sweet crude" or "West Texas Intermediate". Lighter crudes (& condensates) are easier to process for many products (gasoline, gas, petrochemicals) but have less total energy content.

There is a spectrum of oil classified to help the industry understand the characteristics of that source to determine how it is obtained and processed. 

There is a Google Book Link that is entitled, "The properties of petroleum products" (click here)

Definition - CONDENSATE
As natural gas comes to the surface, pressure is released and temperatures are lowered, and some of the gas content naturally condenses into a light oil called condensate.

In case this is confusing, I think of it as a pressure cooker. The higher the pressure the faster food will cook. That is the sort of dynamic that acts upon petroleum reserves in the ground. The pressure 'at depth' cause the substance to be liquid. No different than the magma layer of Earth. Right? Earth's core or center layer that is primarily nickel and iron, BUT, it is liquid, not solid as on the surface of Earth. On the surface of Earth iron is mined.

The layers of Earth are primarily liquid, except for the upper layers. The deeper one goes into Earth's mass there are two qualities guaranteed to be similar, the ROCK is no longer rock as we think about it.

The oil condensates are the same principle. When drilling takes place there is all kinds of changes to Earth's mass at that particular point. There is release of gas and there is movement of liquid. Some of the gas as it reaches the surface of the planet condenses as the pressure is relieved into a form of oil.

The reason Murkowski is ecstatic about it because it can be obtained from gas drills.

The petroleum industry knows no conscience. They will continue to pay off legislators so they can continue these practices, regardless of water pollution and seismic activity. The oils that are produced at this stage of "Past the Peak Oil" requires more energy to process and 'create' gas out of CARBON SUBSTANCES. 

Murkowski wants the petroleum industry to continue to punch holes in Earth to extract methane gas the the very exciting 'condensates' that are sincerely oil, but, appears to be similar.

Murkowski has no moral conscience when it comes to the Climate Crisis. She sees all that happening anyway only it would be Russia or China or some other nation 'getting all the money' when they export their carbon substances. She sees no real problem with competing for the same markets even though it causes greater and greater hardship for people, both, that provide the land to drill on and those that receive it. Basically, what Murkowski is STILL saying is continue to look the other way so we can compete with every other country on Earth. Rather than rising to offer a better idea to supply energy and export American Energy Technology to remove carbon as an energy source. She is corrupt and doesn't care how the USA competes in the world. She only cares about the money any NATURAL RESOURCE that the USA owns.

There were 21 armed security agents at Benghazi beside the six CIA at the annex.

...There were five DS agents at the Mission compound that night. Two had traveled from Tripoli with U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens (who was staying at the Mission compound in Benghazi), and three others were assigned to the Mission facility. In addition to the five DS agents on duty, there were three armed members of the Libyan 17th February Brigade militia, three Libyan National Police officers, and five unarmed members of a local security team comtacted through a British company, Blue Mountain Group, who were guarding the Mission facility that night. In addition, six armed CIA security personnel (plus an
interpreter) operating out of the nearby Annex were able to respond quickly afterreceiving word of the attack. ...

There was a 3 to 1 ratio of attackers to security personnel.

There is no accountability of the actions Congress took in cutting funding to the State Department in the Senate report either. The Senate took good care of themselves in their assessment.

By Howard LaFranchiStaff writer
April 23, 2010
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton (click here) did not stand alone when she objected this week to a Senate Budget Committee plan to take much of a nearly $10 billion cut in President Obama’s proposed discretionary spending for next year from State Department and other international programs....

Some of the accounting by the Senate report is rather astounding. The Annex was notified of the attack yet it took 25 minutes for them to respond because then had to ready two armored vehicles before departing the annex. The vehicles weren't ready at a moment's notice? What was so difficult to respond immediately?

The attack occurred at 9:40 PM.  

During the period between approximately 9:40 p.m. and 10:03 p.m. Benghazi time, the Chief of Base and security team members attempted to secure assistance and heavy weapons (such as .50 caliber truck-mounted machine guns) from the 17th February Brigade and other militias that had been assisting the United States.

The personnel in Libya never prepared for this possibility. They were attempting to respond DURING the attack, but, they didn't have the equipment needed to defend the consulate. This is NOT a State Department issue. The funding was cut and there were personnel on the ground in Libya that were absolutely not prepared for the attack. They were scrambling for resources. What good is a security team if there is no munitions to use to secure the facility?

...some members of the security team expressed frustration that they were
unable to respond more quickly to the Mission compound...

Sounds right.

...Other DS agents went to retrieve their M-4 carbine assault rifles from
Building B when the attack began....

No personnel were prepared for defending the consulate. Just that simple. They never expected to face this kind of danger. Now, if they never expected this kind of danger, than why all the unheeded warnings? If there were so many warnings about the dangers to the consulate and the ambassador why was the security personnel completely unprepared to defend themselves and the consulate?


...The 17th February Brigade members refused, saying they preferred to negotiate with the attackers instead....

There also was no clear understanding there was a single commander that all the security forces would take orders from, the command structure disintegrated at the time of the attack. The militia did not value the Ambassador enough to put their lives on the line for him. There were a variety of value systems within the security personnel, why would anyone expect there to be a sincere effort to defend from the attack? The militia that were relied upon had completely different value systems than the other security personnel.  The hosting country is suppose to provide security to State Department personnel. That is established protocol within any consulate mission. The militias were assigned to this consulate and they did not see the need to defend the Ambassador above all else.

The Ambassador and two others, one being an armed DS agent, were in the 'safe room' of the consulate when they were overcome by smoke from burning diesel fuel. The DS agent lost the other two, including Ambassador Stevens in the smoke. When the smoke entered the safe room it was too late to save anyone because they were all overcome by it. The one DS agent that made it out of the room through a window nearly died as well. It was over long before anyone from the Annex began to search for the Ambassador.

...At approximately 11 :56 p.m. Benghazi time, sporadic arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) were fired at the Annex.28 Over the next hour, the Annex took sporadic small arms fire and RPG rounds, the security team returned fire, and the attackers dispersed....

End of discussion. The security team at Benghazi was not prepared to defend the compound. At 11:56 PM when they finally were organized with their weapons they deflected the second wave attack and ended the confrontation. This is not about having enough security personnel on the ground in Benghazi, this was the fact the security personnel there were not prepared to defend the consulate or the Ambassador. When they were organized to fire back at the attackers it was successful. What else is needed to know?

There were approximately 60 attackers at any point during the gun fire. There were 21 security personnel at the consulate. There were an additional five armed CIA agents at the Annex. There was absolutely no preparation for an attack on that consulate; even the vehicles were not prepared to respond. This is not a State Department issue, it is a command and control issue. No one was prepared for the attack. No one. Twenty-six security personnel, including the 5 CIA agents were not prepared to stop 60 attackers armed with small arms and diesel fuel.

Wall Street is pulling their anti-female nonsense, again.

...Considering monetary policy, (click here) money's sole purpose is to facilitate the exchange of goods. In that case, the only good money is money that is unchanging in value. With the fed staffed with individuals trained in the fraudulent discipline that is economics, it is broadly true that the very few inside our central banks walls believe in stable money values. Because they don't our economy would be much better off if we had a monetary authority possessing one mandate: maintain the integrity of the unit account (the dollar) by stabilizing it's value...

Wall Street is so scared of Chairwoman Janet Yellen they want to build another authority to undermine The Fed and provide exclusive stability to the USA Dollar. OMG.

This is being an unwilling party to the act of aggression by the USA. Don't get caught being helpful.

I don't want to muddy up the waters, but, isn't the demands under abortion laws today a violation of the Privacy Act. Disclosure is a matter of privacy. Coercion for services.


Judicial Remedies and Penalties for Violating the Privacy Act

The Act specifically provides civil remedies, 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552a(g), including damages, and criminal penalties, 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552a(i), for violations of the Act.
The civil action provisions are premised on agency violations of the Act or agency regulations promulgated thereunder.

An individual claiming such a violation by the agency may bring the civil action in a federal district court. If the individual substantially prevails, the court may assess reasonable attorney fees and other litigation costs against the agency. In addition, the court may direct the agency to grant the plaintiff access to his/her records, and when appropriate direct the agency to amend or correct its records subject to the Act.

Actual damages may be awarded to the plaintiff for intentional or willful refusal by the agency to comply with the Act.
In the case of "criminal violations" of the Act (Section 3 of the Act, 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552a(i) limits these so-called penalties to misdemeanors), an officer or employee of an agency may be fined up to $5,000 for:
  1. Knowingly and willfully disclosing individually identifiable information which is prohibited from such disclosure by the Act or by agency regulations; or
  2. Willfully maintaining a system of records without having published a notice in the Federal Register of the existence of that system of records.
In addition, an individual may be fined up to $5,000 for knowingly and willfully requesting or gaining access to a record about an individual under false pretenses.
While the Act does not establish a time limit for prosecutions for violation of the criminal penalties provision of the Act, it does limit the bringing of civil action to two years from the date on which the cause of action arose. See 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552a(g)(5). However, the time limit for filing a civil action may be tolled for material and willful misrepresentation by the agency of any information which is required to be disclosed, if the misrepresentation is material to the liability of the agency.
A civil action may be filed in the U.S. District Court in the district where the requester resides or has his/her principal place of business; in which the agency records are located; or in the District of Columbia.

The federal judiciary has gotten real cozy with the idea of 'doing less work' to satisfy citizen rights.

...Obama’s panel of experts, (click here) the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology, presented its 46 recommendations regarding NSA activities in December following the wide-ranging revelations about NSA surveillance by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
It also recommended several changes to the FISA court system, which authorized NSA broad eavesdropping operations, including massive collection of Americans’ and foreigners’ telephone metadata.
Enacting those reforms, Bates said, would profoundly increase the workloads of federal courts. Some of the proposals may disrupt the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court's ability to fulfill its "responsibilities under (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, under which the secret court operates) and the Constitution to ensure that the privacy interests of United States citizens and others are adequately protected."
Bates strongly warned against a proposal to create a "Public Interest Advocate" to represent privacy and civil liberty concerns before the court, which usually operates behind closed doors.
He said it would provide "greater procedural protections for suspected foreign agents and international terrorists than for ordinary US citizens in criminal investigations."...

Gee, what a shame, they actually have to earn their salaries now, just like it used to be.

This is not benign surveillance. This is invasive and a planned assault.

Non-profit group (click here) the Freedom of the Press Foundation said on Tuesday that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden will join its board of directors in February 2014.
The group uses a crowd-funding structure to collect donations for journalism projects and to encourage news organizations to use encryption tools.
"Journalism isn't possible unless reporters and their sources can safely communicate," said Snowden in a statement, "and where laws can't protect that, technology can. This is a hard problem, but not an unsolvable one, and I look forward to using my experience to help find a solution.”...
This is also NOT metadata. Just because people haven't been rounded up, doesn't mean it wasn't going to happen. This is not about national security, this is about aggression. Aggression against innocent people. The USA government has given itself permission to own every computer in the world and use it at will. This is complete denial of citizen's rights. It violates the 14th Amendment. It states:

 ...“nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”...

The malware introduces criminality to our government processes and removes the rights of citizens.

The U.S. National Security Agency (click here) is reported to have implanted malicious software in nearly 100,000 computers worldwide -- allowing the U.S. to conduct surveillance on those machines and create a digital highway for launching cyberattacks.

The New York Times says the NSA inserts most of the software by gaining access to computer networks, but has also increasingly made use of a secret technology that enables it to enter and alter data in computers even if they are not connected to the Internet.

The report cites NSA documents, U.S. officials and computer experts.

The Times story comes as President Barack Obama prepares to announce Friday changes he wants to make in the scope of the NSA spying. The Timesreports that aides to Mr. Obama say he will curtail the agency's surveillance, but not adopt the most far-reaching recommendations of a White House review panel....

In Congressional testimony, former CIA Director Michael Morrell stated the metadata collected has not prevented any attacks on Americans. He stated that once there was suspect of an attack within dialogues LISTENED TO by an agent the metadata was then accessed to find out who the person was speaking with and whether it was about American citizens within an American location inside the USA. No, ACTIVE LISTENING, by CIA agents and the cross check of metadata ever turned up a known terrorist threat within the USA.

C-Span (click here) The statements regarding Metadata was during questioning by Senator Grassley, but, one has to witness the tone and emphasis by both Morell and Grassley to know there was option to stop the program. Grassley came away from this testimony determined to keep the program as it exists today. It is a political thing, but, also sheer fear of the unknown, too. Grassley is more than willing to violate the 14th Amendment for his own reasons.

It is called Moral Courage. A gun is not needed, but, a conscience is.

The brutal beating of Kelly Thomas had no conscience. At no point in time did any of the officers step back from their 'mind set' to realize there was no danger to their lives and they needed to take a different direction with their actions.

Police acquitted in beating of homeless man.

"He is still going to fight." Police in the USA have no idea they are doing in this country. Police officers are taught they are to subdue anyone they are concerned about. They take subdued to an extent that kills. That is not what police are expected to do in this country. This man was unarmed and had no idea whatsoever what he had done wrong and was mercilessly beaten because police officers acted out of bureaucratic bullshit. They have arbitrary rules of engagement with the public and they don't use COGNITIVE reasons to stop their assault when there is absolutely no danger to their lives.

The entire TEACHING of police and their RESPONSIBILITY is wrong. They are taught these techniques by horrid instructors such as the former "Blackwater." This isn't war, this is the public.

Thomas, (click here) a mentally disabled homeless man, was beaten, tasered, suffocated and pistol whipped as he lay on a street corner being sat on by no less than six police officers during an incident in July 2011.
In what is undoubtedly one of if not the most disturbing police brutality videos ever, Thomas can be heard pleading for his father, moaning, “Daddy, daddy, they are killing me,” as officers prolong the assault....

Give the Police Academy 5 months and you too can be a brutal enforcer of the law.
