Blogging can be dangerous ...
The primary reason I have decided to stop posting the blog has to do with threats. I have received many of them, including death threats. Usually, I am able to brush aside threats, since most are not of a serious nature, but lately I have received several that are not to be taken lightly, especially considering the fact somebody has taken the liberty to post my address and telephone number (information easily attained from the domain registry) in various places on the internet. First and foremost, I have a responsibility to my family and posting political commentary obviously comes in a distant second.
Earlier today, due to the above, my wife asked me to take down the blog. Her name is being used to post libelous and hateful messages on various forums and this disturbs her immensely (over the last two years, somebody has also hijacked my name to post hateful and threatening comments; as well, a writer, who shall remain anonymous, complained last year that he had received threatening phone calls by somebody claiming to be me). Moreover, I have received threatening phone calls at my place of work, thus jeopardizing my livelihood. I can no longer allow any of this to continue.
In the case of the threatening phone call made to my place of work, I have a good idea who it is -- members of a local chapter of Betar, a Zionist youth organization. It is really of no importance how I know this. As for the hijacking of my name, that of my wife, and numerous death threats, I am fairly certain it is, as well, Zionists, who are angered, possibly to the point of violence, by my commentary and well-researched indictment of both Zionists and their political allies in this country.
Finally, I am saddened by the fact one cannot engage in political discussion in this country without being subjected to abusive and potentially violent behavior on the part of those who disagree. I'm afraid this will only get worse in the months ahead, as Bush and the neocons prepare to attack Iran. Unfortunately, there are many scary parallels between the United States in 2006 and Nazi Germany, circa the 1930s. I must stress again that I am concerned about the threats issued against my family and first and foremost the health of my wife.
I sincerely thank all of you for supporting the blog, especially those of you who have contributed financially. I hope for a day when all citizens in this country may be able to express their opinions without the fear of retribution and violence. Unfortunately, I believe things will get far worse before they get better.

In the last day or so, a large number of readers have emailed me. More than a few have asked me to not dismantle the blog and allow them to access the archive and blogroll. I have decided to make the site "live" again for this purpose, although I will not be posting, for the reasons I have provided in an email to those who wanted further explanation.

Missing Link Atta 'Martyrdom' Video Appears Five Weeks Before Election
Date: Monday, October 02 @ 09:25:04 AST
By Kurt Nimmo, kurtnimmo.com
Suddenly, with the midterm election five weeks away, a previously undiscovered video emerges, showing Mohammed Atta "reading his .martyrdom' will inside Afghanistan at Usama bin Laden's headquarters."
In another segment, Atta appears with Ziad Jarrah, who, according to the official nine eleven fairy tale, was the pilot of "United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers apparently stormed the flight deck," according to Fox News.
As an extra added bonus, the tape shows Ramzi Binalshibh, the "senior" al-Qaeda leader and Hamburg cell member, supposedly captured after a gunbattle in Karachi, Pakistan, on September 11, 2002, and handed over to the United States.
The "high quality, unedited film" is being hyped as a missing link in the official mythology. "American and German investigators have struggled to find evidence of Atta's whereabouts in January 2000 after he disappeared from Hamburg. The hour-long tape places him in Afghanistan at a decisive moment in the development of the conspiracy when he was given operational command. Months later both he and Jarrah enrolled at flying schools in America."
And yet, according to the Berliner Zeitung newspaper, "Atta was under surveillance by CIA agents while in Germany from January to May, 2000.. The Americans did not inform German law enforcement authorities of their observation of Atta, or of the reasons that they considered him suspicious.. But the CIA apparently also hid its incendiary findings from other agencies of the United States government," thus allowing him to gain a U.S. entry visa on May 18, 2000.
Other reports put him in Mabalacat, Philippines, staying at the Woodland Resort hotel where he was observed by locals drinking "Johnnie Walker Black Label whiskey" and sleeping around, a story grossly at odds with the behavior of Atta's pious doppelgänger recording a "martyrdom video" at approximately the same time in Kandahar, Afghanistan (the presence of the carousing Atta in the Philippines was reported by the Manila Times, 10/2/2001, the International Herald Tribune, 10/5/2001, and the Associated Press, 9/28/2001).
Of course, none of this matters, as the idea here is to keep the American people on point as the Bushcons attempt to remain in control of Congress, not that Democrats can be expected to wander much from the neocon forever war agenda, inflated by fake terrorism and elusive, one-step-ahead terrorists, Freddy Kruger phantoms designed to keep the "clash of civilizations" going indefinitely.
Moreover, the neocons are no doubt concerned about the fact that, according to a recent Zogby poll, "less than half of the American public trusts the official 9/11 story or believes the attacks were adequately investigated." In May of this year, Zogby America reported: "Close to half (48%) agrees the U.S. government and 9/11 Commission are not covering up anything, yet nearly as many (42%) believe the government and 9/11 Commission are covering up. One in ten (10%) is unsure."
In order to get us back in the fold, the neocons are engaging in a full-court press, releasing the missing link Atta video and, as well, yet another Ayman al-Zawahri video, a follow-up to "a string of videos for the anniversary of Sept. 11, showing increasingly sophisticated production techniques in a likely effort to demonstrate that it remains a powerful, confident force despite the U.S.-led war on terror," as USA Today characterized it. All of this reeks of desperation, as the latest "al-Qaeda" and "al-Qaeda-linked" videos show the desecrated bodies of US soldiers in Iraq and issue threats against Pope Benedict XVI, obvious attempts to enrage Americans.
Naturally, as increasing numbers of Americans are either weary of all this or simply ignore it, we can expect an October Surprise, as promised by Segretti understudy Karl Rove.
"It should come as no surprise if the Bush Administration undertakes a preemptive war against Iran sometime before the November election," writes former senator Gary Hart, victim of the Republican engineered "Zippergate" scandal.
"In more rational times, including at the height of the Cold War, bizarre actions such as unilateral, unprovoked, preventive war are dismissed by thoughtful, seasoned, experienced men and women as mad. But those qualities do not characterize our current leadership," infested with neocons determined to "remake our national character," a key objective of the Schmittian fascists.
In Bushzarro world, where up is down and black is white, such things are not only possible, they are increasingly likely as Bush nears the end of his reign of terror.
