Fitzgerald to Seek Indictment of Rove By Jason Leopold 28 April 06 http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/042806Y.shtml
Despite vehement denials by his attorney, who said this week that Karl Rove is neither a "target" nor in danger of being indicted in the CIA leak case, the special counsel leading the investigation has already written up charges against Rove, and a grand jury is expected to vote on whether to indict the Deputy White House Chief of Staff sometime next week, sources knowledgeable about the probe said Friday afternoon. clip..
U.S. trying to halt suit against NSA April 28, 2006 http://news.com.com/2061-10789_3-6066688.html
The Bush administration formally said Friday that it will try to halt a lawsuit that accuses AT&T of helping the National Security Agency spy on Americans illegally. In an 8-page document ( PDF ) filed with a federal court in the northern district of California, the U.S. Justice Department said it will intervene in the lawsuit and try to have it tossed out of court.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights group based in San Francisco, filed the class action lawsuit against the federal government in January. The suit claims AT&T's alleged cooperation violates free speech and privacy rights found in the U.S. Constitution and also contravenes federal wiretapping law, which prohibits electronic surveillance "except as authorized by statute." The Justice Department said in its filing that the "United States intends to assert the military and state secrets privilege" and have the case dismissed. The state secrets privilege, outlined by the Supreme Court in a 1953 case , permits the government to derail a lawsuit that might otherwise lead to the disclosure of military secrets. clip..
Taking the President to Court US Rep John Conyers 27 April 2006 http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/042706R.shtml
As the Republican budget bill struggled to make its way through Congress at the end of last year and beginning of this year (the bill cuts critical programs such as student loans and Medicaid funding), the House and Senate passed different versions of it. House Republicans did not want to make Republicans in marginal districts vote on the bill again, so they simply certified that the Senate bill was the same as the House bill and sent it to the President. The President, despite warnings that the bill did not represent the consensus of the House and Senate, simply shrugged and signed the bill anyway. Now, the Administration is implementing it as though it was the law of the land.
Members of the House were deprived of our right to vote on a bill that is now being treated as the law of the land. I plan to file suit tomorrow in federal district court in Detroit against the President, members of the Cabinet and other federal officers seeking to have a simple truth confirmed: a bill not passed by the House and Senate is not a law, even if the President signs it. As such, the Budget bill cannot be treated as the law of the land. clip..
Bush Set to Approve Takeover of 9 Military Plants by Dubai April 28, 2006 By JIM RUTENBERG and DAVID E. SANGER NY Times http://tinyurl.com/fp8q8
WASHINGTON, April 27 - President Bush is expected on Friday to announce his approval of a deal under which a Dubai-owned company would take control of nine plants in the United States that manufacture parts for American military vehicles and aircraft, say two administration officials familiar with the terms of the deal. The officials, who were granted anonymity so they could speak freely about something the president had not yet announced, said that the final details had not yet been set and that Mr. Bush might put conditions on the transaction to keep military technology in the US. clip.
Thousands Converge on New York to Protest War By DESMOND BUTLER, AP
NEW YORK (April 30) - Tens of thousands of protesters marched Saturday through lower Manhattan to demand an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, just hours after this month's death toll reached 70. The demonstrators stretched for about 10 blocks as they headed down Broadway. Organizers said 300,000 people marched, though a police spokesman declined to give an estimate. There were no reports of arrests.

Wayne Madsen Report 04.29.06 www.waynemadsenreports.com
April 29, 2006 -- The cresting wave of major scandals in Washington. At week's end, there is every indication that the Bush White House is bracing for additional scandals. A sex scandal involving the rented suites at the Watergate Hotel (the GOP just can't stay away from that place), female and male prostitutes and male GOP members of Congress and top CIA officials, including Director Porter Goss, and GOP-connected contractors is simmering but is expected to blow wide open in the next few weeks. Goss's warnings about ex-CIA officers speaking to the media have more to do with curtailing information about the growing sex and bribery scandal than in tracking down leaks about pre-Iraq war intelligence. Also, George W. Bush's top assistant Karl Rove appears to be facing at least two criminal charges that could be brought by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in the next few weeks. The former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Lester Crawford is the subject of a federal grand jury for financial improprieties involving pharmaceutical companies and making false statements to Congress. Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, along with GOP Chairman Ken Mehlman, have been implicated in a GOP phone jamming criminal case in New Hampshire. clip..

Stop concentration camps in China http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/6-3-30/39902.html
April 20, 2006 (excerpt)
Since 1999, a violent persecution by the Chinese Communist Party, towards Falun Gong practitioners, has been going on. Thousands of people tortured, put in labor camps, families torn apart, all because they want to practice Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance, the 3 principles of Falun Gong. The Communist Party have a secret concentration camp in Sujiatun where 6000 Falun Gong practitioners are having their organs harvested while they are alive. In March 2006, three independent witnesses revealed that the Chinese communist regime is operating a secret concentration camp specifically for Falun Gong practitioners in the Sujiatun District, Shenyang City, China. Organs are removed from thousands of live bodies and sold for profit. The remains are then cremated to eliminate evidence. No one has ever come out alive! A veteran medical doctor who has served in the Shenyang military zone revealed that there are about 36 concentration camps in China with the three largest in the northeastern provinces of Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning. The largest camp, codenamed "672-S," is said to hold over 120,000 people, mostly Falun Gong practitioners. Another witness, a former staff member of the "Liaoning Thrombus Treatment Center of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine" in the Sujiatun District of Shenyang City in Liaoning Province revealed that her husband at the time was a neurosurgeon whose job was to remove corneas of Falun Gong practitioners. "You don't understand my suffering," she recalls him telling her. "Those Falun Gong practitioners were alive. It might be easier for me if they were dead, but they were alive." Whereas, this explains why there is no waiting list for human organs in the People's Republic of China, and that one can obtain a fresh organ as fast as in 24-hours in China. Many practitioners have been missing in the past few years after they were illegally taken into custody by the authorities. One of them is the sister of Canadian citizen Michelle Zhang. Michelle's sister, Yunhe Zhang, kidnapped by police over 4 years ago. Nobody has heard from her since. Police stations, labour camps, provincial prisons all deny having kept her or knowing her whereabouts. clip..

Today a friend in Europe wrote me that he'd gone to his bank today to get a $50 bill to send to the states to cover a purchase here and the bank gave him one of the new "red backs." This has to have a dramatic effect on Americans traveling abroad and foreigners coming here. On C2C a few nights ago when George Noory asked Sean David Morton for a prediction on the 2008 elections, his response was that there will be too much economic turmoil by then for the election to matter. Considering gold, silver and oil prices, the turmoil has started.
$100 Redbacks & Inflation - Sean David Morton has seen the future - and if you live outside the US, that future may include red $100 bills. This is an extremely important story, so let me start with the background so you'll have a good sense of the economic playing field.
The Bush war in Iraq was recently reported to be costing $1-trillion dollars (or more) and with a miniscule manufacturing base, the US has only one way to pay for it: monetize (paper) the debt. This will have the effect of "watering down" the purchasing power of US currency. It's also why I believe the trend for a declining dollar is now reasserting itself in the markets.
Now you may recall that I recently published a note from sources that there were reports of "red currency" being in place in strategic centers outside of the United States - apparently in preparation for a two-tiered currency system. The way such currency works is this: Money outside the US would have one exchange rate, while money inside the US would have another.
Now to Sean David Morton's report: In April of 2005 I went to Amsterdam for five days to finalize a financial deal that regarded paying a number of fees for a transport of capital from Africa, to Holland to some banks in Andorra. I was taken via limo with my partner in the deal to some offices that were adjacent to a number of warehouses in a warehouse /business district that was near the Amsterdam airport. The people were listed and licensed as "APPROVED DIPLOMATIC HANDLERS" and were a SECURITIES and FINANCE firm. The two men we were dealing with took us to a high security warehouse and there was a section that contained a series of vaults. We entered one of the vaults, and they opened a case and they showed us the capital that was to be transported. They opened one large steamer sized case that was filled with the new "large face" Ben Franklin US $100 bills. I could only see the FACE SIDE of the FRONT of the bills under the glass. The bills had a RED TINGE or coloring on either side of the large FACE of Franklin. The men said that there were approximately $60 BILLION worth of these "REDBACKS" (their words, not MINE) all printed and ready to go, in banking centers around the world and that they were to be used as part of a "Contingency plan" for a secondary foreign US currency, or USDs that could ONLY be used outside the United States. They said the bills had only arrived a few weeks before, which of course had raised a great deal of curiosity in many of the financial markets. That is ALL I DIRECTLY SAW.
Only a few weeks ago, the brand new Hamilton $10 bill is now in circulation, and it HAS A RED TINGED DYE all around the face parts and back of the bill, only slightly lighter than the red dye I saw on the USD $100s. My THEORY is that the US economy is about to go into free fall and enter a "printing press" economy, as I have predicted, and I feel that is happening NOW. A two-tiered currency, just as Japan did in the 1980s, would allow them to hyper-inflate the dollar here at home, and keep the dollar more stable, against the Euro, overseas.
Let's say they pass a law that says you can only use REDBACKS outside the USA, and that all other USDs will become FIAT in, say, 120 days. Most estimates put illegal USDs, both counterfeit and drug money outside the USA at about $100 billion. Can you imagine people with huge amounts of CASH going into banks to trade it in for NEW REDBACKS? VIOLA! The Fed Reserve Note suddenly becomes that much MORE valuable without another single piece of paper being printed.
The US has an "emergency plan" in place to impose two-tiered currency in the event of a real shock to the US economy. If we had a huge terrorist event within our borders, for example, global confidence in the US dollar as the reserve currency might be shaken to such an extent that a new currency outside the US (with different purchasing power) would be a useful policy tool. Also a massive collapse of the US economic system under its own weight might also be a cause for a two-tiered currency. We've seen reports that North Korea, for one, may be engaging in large scale counterfeiting operations. This is particularly significant because the bills involved were $100 bills! Watch the fall of the US dollar and the price of gold and silver as key indicators of what's to come.
Bill Williams' Joe Cell Replication Project: http://JoeCellHydra.com
In the first part of April, 2006, Bill Williams told a discussion list that he successfully tested a device known as the Joe Cell. It allegedly feeds off Orgone energy and uses electrically charged water as the "gate" or medium through which the aetheral energy is drawn from the surroundings and transferred to the automobile engine. He was in process of disclosing how he accomplished this when confronted on April 11 by two unidentified individuals who told him to cease all of his alternative energy work or there would be dire consequences. Williams complied, but others involved are doing all they can to make sure the information is republished and replicated widely. at PESN.com (Apr. 13, 2006)
