The FBI is joining the Bush administration's War on Porn. And it's looking for a few good agents. "I guess this means we've won the war on terror," said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing.
Explicit sexual entertainment is a profit center for companies including General Motors Corp. and Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.(FoxTV) (the two major owners of DirecTV), Time Warner Inc. and the Sheraton, Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt hotel chains.
Exxon's $10B fill-up Cashing in on crunch
Oil companies came under new fire yesterday when it emerged that ExxonMobil’s profits are likely to soar above $10 billion this quarter on the back of the fuel crisis.
That’s $110 million a day, and more net income than any company has ever made in a quarter. It’s also a stunning 69 percent increase over the same period a year ago and a 34 percent jump from the $7.6 billion Exxon made just last quarter. ``Do you realize President Bush has just given a tax break to ExxonMobil?’’ thundered Rep. Ed Markey (D-Malden).
"They have so much profit, it’s almost an embarrassment of riches. They don’t know what to do with it."

very interesting highly recommended talk between leftist (Christian) Sander Hicks and conservative (Christian) Alex Jones

for the first 15 minutes, Mr. Estulin, a Russian dissident who was ejected by the KGB and moved to Canada is living in exile in Madrid after an assassination attempt, talks about what the Bilderberg meeting really is, and gives a LIST OF 2005 ATTENDEES, world leaders and royalty some whose names you will recognize and hopefully realize they are not getting together to trade cookie recipes, but rather did discuss plans for ruling the world, including forced POPULATION REDUCTION in the United States, by about 100 million people, and the possible invasion of the US by international forces to put down patriotic right-wing and left-wing resistance to global corporate-fascist domination.
Secret Service Investigates Student's school project on the Bill of Rights, assigned by teacher
Just before his death, James Jesus Angleton, the legendary chief of counterintelligence at the Central Intelligence Agency, was a bitter man. He felt betrayed by the people he had worked for all his life. In the end, he had come to realize that they were never really interested in American ideals of "freedom" and "democracy." They really only wanted "absolute power."
(Angleton's boss was Bush's father's and grandfather's #1 mentor, Allen Dulles, who gave Angleton his job for helping to hide the laundering of profits of Americans who invested in the Nazis. Dulles and his brother were the attorney liaison for the New York banking/corporate investment crowd and the Third Reich. He imported top Nazi SS into the top Intelligence arm of the United States. This should explain a lot.)
I worked at the CIA myself as a low-level clerk as a teenager in the '60s.
I nevertheless held faith in the basic integrity of a system where power ultimately resided in the people, and whereby if enough people got together and voted, real and fundamental change could happen.
What constitutes my personal paranoid shift is that I no longer believe this to be necessarily true.
In his book, "Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower," William Blum warns of how the media will make anything that smacks of "conspiracy theory" an immediate "object of ridicule." This prevents the media from ever having to investigate the many strange interconnections among the ruling class—for example, the relationship between the boards of directors of media giants, and the energy, banking and defense industries

ENDING FREE SPEECH RADIO
If this amendment is approved, FCC restrictions will soon descend on American talk show hosts, with lists of banned topics. Hosts will be fined or imprisoned and stations will lose their broadcast licenses, just as in Canada, if they violate these restrictions.
In Canada in Aug. 2004, “CHOI FM,” Quebec City’s most popular talk show station, was dissolved by the Canadian government. Its 33 employees were put out of work. Its offense? One of its talk show hosts criticized African dictators whose children were educated in Canadian universities. This was considered a “hate crime” against blacks.
Under AMDT.2662, the government can take over local law enforcement if:
