Someone had posted on Facebook a real billboard from Hillary and Bill Clinton’s home state of Arkansas. Here it is… .


Which inspired me to agree with its general sentiment.

“Except that it’s not complete,” I added in my comment about it.

So here’s now my expanded version of the billboard which hopefully balances things out bit. Politically. ūüôā

Bottom line? Vote for anybody but a Clinton or a Bush. Come to think of it, anybody but a Democrat or a Republican.

And “that ain’t¬†no bull”… ūüôā

Or as a mathematician might put it… it is a case¬†of regression.

REGRESSION in math-politics

PS: In case you’re wondering who that turbaned man is in the right muffler billboard, here’s a¬†Jan 2002 Truth in Media story and the cartoon – ‚ÄúEnronizing Pretzelitis.‚ÄĚ






Inside the CIA



What the world learned yesterday about the US government’s torture practices makes Watergate seem like a tempest in a teapot.

Impeachment? How about prosecution and imprisonment of those responsible for writing this dark chapter of American history. For, The CIA torture practices would have made Gestapo proud.

And not just the Bush administration officials are to blame. See below how Obama’s White House also stonewalled Senate Committees REPEATED requests for Information in 2013.

Which is why we need an independent Special Prosecutor to prosecute the criminals in our government. Several US and international agencies have already called for it, too.

Human Rights Watch, for example, is one of them. They also called on Obama to appoint a special prosecutor.

‚ÄúThe Senate report summary should forever put to rest CIA denials that it engaged in torture, which is criminal and can never be justified,‚ÄĚ said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. ‚ÄúThe report shows the repeated claims that harsh measures were needed to protect Americans are utter fiction.‚ÄĚ

“Unless this important truth-telling process leads to prosecution of officials, torture will remain a ‚Äėpolicy option‚Äô for future presidents.” HRW said in its today’s release (see

Here’s an excerpt from the 500-page Executive Summary of the actual declassified Senate report:

“This Committee Study documents the abuses and countless mistakes made between late 2001 and early 2009… The Study describes the history of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program from its inception to its termination, including a review of each of the 119 known individuals who were held in CIA custody.”

Which means that as horrific and widespread the CIA’s torture practices have been, they are only a fraction of the criminal practices what the US government and its agents carried out.

Here’s a quote from the footnote of Page 9 of 299 of the Executive Summary:

“The report does not review CIA renditions for individuals who were not ultimately detained by the CIA, CIA interrogation of detainees in U.S. military custody, or the treatment of detainees in the custody of foreign governments, as these topics were not included in the Committee’s Terms of Reference.”

I can’t think of many times in recent memory that I agreed with John McCain on any¬†subject. In fact, I can’t think of ANY¬†time during the last 25 years that¬†the former Republican presidential candidate and I were on the same side of a political issue. Not since I told off the Senator face-to-face for¬†his role in the “Keating Five” scandal¬†(S&L era corruption case –¬†“the only honest politician is the one who stays bought” – see “McCain: Our Fraud Hero“, Mar 2000).

Well, yesterday, McCain surprised me. His personal experiences as a prisoner of war in Vietnam outweighed his Republican party loyalties. Speaking on the Senate floor on Dec 9, McCain said those…

,,,(CIA)¬†security¬†policies¬†“stained our national honor, did much harm and little good.”

Saying that “the truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow,” an emotional Sen. John McCain, subjected to torture himself, praised the release on Tuesday of a report on CIA torture of terrorist suspects.

Check out this story, including a video of McCain’s speech, on


Nor were such criminal activities limited to just the Bush Administration.

Here’s another quote from the footnote of Page 9 of 299 of the Executive Summary about how Obama’s White House Also Stonewalled Senate Committees Repeated Requests for Information in 2013:

“The Committee did not have access to approximately 9,400 CIA documents related to the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program that were withheld by the White House pending a determination and claim of executive privilege. The Committee requested access to these documents over several years, including in writing on January 3, 2013, May 22, 2013, and December 19, 2013. The Committee received no response from the White House.”

Nor did Obama take any action after a four-year investigation by his own Justice Department:

“From January 2, 2008, to August 30, 2012, the Department of Justice conducted a separate investigation into various aspects of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, with the possibility of criminal prosecutions of CIA personnel and contractors.”


And since silence implies acquiescence, this makes Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder also culpable as accessories to CIA/Bush crimes.

US elections history

Disgust or empathy, take your pick, were the big winners in Nov 4, 2014 US elections as Americans voted with their feet Рby staying away from polls.

TSENG-2533-640x426 none-of-the-above2

Some eligible voters simply did not want to play a part in a thoroughly corrupt political systems (the Disgust group). Others just didn’t care (the Apathy group). ¬†Either way, “None of the Above” was by fart the most popular voter¬†The 36.6% average turnout¬†across the country was lower than even in the 1920s, the previous low in the last century¬†(the¬†1824 turnout of 26% is still the all-time low – see below).

The newest state Hawaii, for example, one of our two home states, set a new all-time record for a low turnout (34.6%).  Arizona, our first home state, was even lower Р34.4%. But the more mature states, like Indiana and Texas, led the nation with 28% and 28.5% voter turnouts.

At the other end of the scale, the voters in Maine and Wisconsin showed the most faith in the current system. The turnout in those two states was 59.3% and 56.9% respectively.

While the “lamestream” (establishment) media headlines today are treating the election as some sort of a sporting event in which the red-shirted Republicans thrashed the blue-shirted Democrats, it is now clear that a vast majority of Americans realize that what we have in this country is a DEMO-FARCE, just as this writer put it in a Nov 1996 column published by the WASHINGTON TIMES.¬†

Voting for either a Republican or a Democrat is meaningless. For, they both work for the same bosses – the (Wall Street) Plutocrats of the New World Order

Here’s an excerpt…

Fielding two horses from the same stable evidently suited the U.S. Establishment just fine. Election 96 was a “demo farce!” The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy. [WASHINGTON TIMES, Nov 17, 1996]

UPDATE – Nov 6, 2014

“Non of the Above” Win Big

None of the above

Establishment Media Largely Mum on Disastrously Low Turnout

One day after, the national “lamestream” (mainstream) establishment media are largely mum on the biggest story of the 2014 US elections – a disastrously low turnout.

Our scan of the news headlines this morning turned up only one story, at NPR, about that (see Midterm Elections May Have Had Record Low Turnout : NPR). And event that piece sounded more apologetic than alarming, pointing out that midterm elections traditionally have lower turnouts.

True. But even so, a record low turnout (36.6% average) is still a record low turnout.

So back to Disgust and Apathy, the big winners on Nov 4.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans refused to participate in our political system. They turned down the role of Patsy in the New World Order farce into which our democratic process has morphed. [Truth in Media]

As a result, NO CANDIDATE received¬†a true¬†voter mandate. Not even the “unopposed”¬†who may have won 100% of votes. Because they were cast by¬†a mere third or so of eligible voters. ¬†The rest, voted with their feet – by staying away from polls.

Time to weep or rejoice? Take you pick.

Low Turnout vote against NWO

Meanwhile, here are some local reports about the low turnout in various states which provide additional spot-evidence.
