Ed Brown Gassed, Tortured In Deprivation Tank

Tax protester speaks for first time since arrest in prison phone call

In a disturbing audio clip, Ed Brown speaks for the first time since his arrest and relates how he was gassed by noxious fumes for three days in a detention center as well as being put in a deprivation tank for 15 hours.

Shaun Kranish of MaketheStand.com was able to call the Ohio prison that Brown has been incarcerated in and talk with him on the phone for 10 minutes.

Sensory deprivation is a form of torture and extended deprivation can result in extreme anxiety, hallucinations, bizarre thoughts, depression, and antisocial behavior.

Brown also said he had been prevented from making any phone calls or receiving mail.

Factions Threaten To Destabilize The GOP In 2008

By- Suzie-Q @ 6:59 PM MST

WASHINGTON — Some Republican social conservatives are talking about maybe dropping out and forming a third party. Economic conservatives are angry that the GOP Congress and President Bush went on a six-year spending spree. Then there’s Iraq, and the question of whether the party is too rigid in support of the unpopular war.

This is the mess that is the national Republican Party, vintage October 2007 — a fragmenting coalition in search of a center that might hold. As voters prepare to pick a 2008 presidential nominee, the GOP confronts a central quandary: Can anyone bring these factions together?

Even that question divides the faithful.

The prevailing view for the moment is that unity is just months away, thanks to the prospect that New York Sen. Hillary Clinton may become the Democratic nominee.

“Nothing will bring Republicans together better than the prospect of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” said Fergus Cullen, New Hampshire’s Republican chairman.

Others aren’t so confident, particularly if the current GOP poll leader, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, is the nominee.

“He’s stated a pro-abortion-rights position,” said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a conservative group. “There is nothing more fundamental to social conservatives than the preservation of human life. Right behind that is the issue of marriage, which he is vulnerable on. It gives social conservatives very little to be motivated.”

They could even turn to a third-party candidate. A group of leading social conservatives gathered in Utah last month and discussed the prospect, and it’s expected to come up again this weekend when they gather for a four-day “Washington Briefing 2007” and hear from GOP presidential candidates. Sponsoring organizations include the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family.

Turkey Approves Sending Troops Into Iraq

anthony @ 18:35 BST

ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkey’s parliament approved by a large majority on Wednesday a government request to allow troops to cross into northern Iraq to crush Kurdish rebels based there.

Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has played down expectations of an imminent offensive, but the parliamentary approval provides the legal basis for NATO‘s second biggest army to cross the mountainous border as and when it sees fit.

Duhbya and Laura met with the Dalai Lama this morning, but it seems that it was a private meeting, so I’ll have to settle for this video of a meeting from Nov. 9, 2005.
The Commander in Chief will be attending the award ceremony where the Dalai Lama will recieve the Congressional Medal of Honor.

NIST Admits Total Collapse Of Twin Towers Unexplainable

anthony @ 17:15 BST

Implicitly acknowledges controlled demolition only means by which towers could have fallen at free fall speed

Paul Joseph Watson | Prison Planet | Tuesday, October 16, 2007

The National Institute for Standards and Technology has been forced to admit that the total free-fall collapse of the twin towers cannot be explained after an exhaustive scientific study, implicitly acknowledging that controlled demolition is the only means by which the buildings could have come down.

In a recent letter (PDF link) to 9/11 victim’s family representatives Bill Doyle and Bob McIlvaine, NIST states, “We are unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse.”

A 10,000 page scientific study only offers theories as to how the “collapse initiation” proceeded and fails to address how it was possible for part of a WTC structure to fall through the path of most resistance at freefall speed, completely violating the accepted laws of physics.

9/11: A Refutation of the Official Collapse Theory…

…is an article by Dr Judy Wood in which she argues that gravity alone cannot account for the speed at which the Twin Towers collapsed.

For the Twin Towers to have collapsed at the speed at which they did and in the way that they did can only be explained by controlled demolition.

It is this article more than any other piece of evidence which convinced me that the “official” explanation for how the Twin Towers came down is false and that 9/11 was an “inside job”.

Read this article even if you read nothing else on the subject.

Listen to the Troops

Sudhan@16:40 CET

By Robert Scheer| The Nation, October 17, 2007

When will we listen to the troops? I’m not talking about soldiers used as props for a George Bush photo op, telling reporters what Washington wants to hear. The military is disciplined and thus accustomed, from Gen. David Petraeus on down, to toeing the official line. But the Iraq war has also produced brilliant messages of dissent from the ranks that should cause us to stop in our tracks and reconsider what we have wrought. First, a group of sergeants came forward, and on Tuesday it was the captains’ turn to speak out.

In “The War as We Saw It,” an eloquent Op-Ed article published in the New York Times in August, seven sergeants summarized the futility of their fifteen months of fighting in Iraq: “To believe that Americans, with an occupying force that long ago outlived its reluctant welcome, can win over a recalcitrant local population and win this counterinsurgency is farfetched.” After penning that crie de cour, two of the soldiers died in Iraq and a third was severely wounded.
