Swine Floo is everywhere! President Barack Obama signed a proclamation declaring swine flu a national emergency so we guess that makes it official? We thought Kings made proclamations. Dr Mercola of tells us "Nearly all of them, just like the CDC and mainstream media, use the statistic that 36,000 people die from the influenza every year. I actually wrote an article about this fallacy more than five years ago. Interestingly that number has remained static as if carved into stone all these years. However, the truth is that less than 1,000 people actually died from type A or type B influenza. The other 35,000 died from pneumonia. This is actually clearly listed on the CDC's own website, yet virtually everyone ignores this fact...As of October 11, 2009 the World Health Organization reported that, worldwide, there have been more than 399,232 laboratory confirmed cases of pandemic influenza H1N1, and over 4,735 deaths. Folks, that is 4,735 deaths in the ENTIRE world, not just the US! Most all of these deaths occurred in immunocompromised individuals...With the facts at hand, it is easy to detect a pattern of misdirection and purposeful confusion. Doesn't it make you wonder why?" Why indeed. Speaking of kings, State of the King has Ohio's SENATOR SHERROD BROWN essentially telling ORIN HATCH and BEN NELSON how wrong they really are. Load up on bricks for This Snufugopolis and LAURA INGRAHAM while CLAIRE MCCASKILL and MITCH MCCONNELL try to have a bi-partisan moment. Face the Bob lands RUSS FEINGOLD (see action alert) up against JOHN "Crazy Train" MCCAIN. Let's see if they discuss AL FRANKEN's Amendment. Read all about it at HuffPo. Meanwhile CARL LEVIN goes "across the aisle" to the network-that-shall-not-be-named. If you have any bricks left get them out for "representatives from the health insurance industry and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce". Speaking of the USCoC, catch the YES MEN punking them sooo bad at Democracy NOW! Meet the David has JOHN CORNYN and CHUCK SCHUMER battle wits, PLUS the New Yorker's JANE MAYER of The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals. After all the chatter and football watch 60 Minutes for a story on MEDICARE/MEDICAID FRAUD. "I'm shocked, SHOCKED there is gambling going on here!" Catch NOMI PRINS on Ring of Fire, PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS on with Max, GARETH PORTER on AntiWarRadio, PBC's Part III with SIBEL EDMONDS and more. The Brick TeeVee Crew has been enjoying the MLB playoffs and can't wait for the World Series to start. Happy Halloween from the BTV Crew! "Stay sick! Turn Blue!" -The Ghoul

JUSTICE ACT at Credo "On December 31, three key provisions of the USA PATRIOT ACT are set to expire, and the House and Senate will hold hearings on reauthorization. Feingold and Durbin are using the PATRIOT ACT reauthorization process to reverse Bush era laws that take away our constitutionally guaranteed rights. The JUSTICE Act would completely repeal the provision of the FISA Amendments Act intended to legally immunize big telecoms that illegally assisted in the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program. It would restore protections for the privacy of library and bookstore records. And it would also add strong checks and balances to PATRIOT ACT provisions governing FISA orders, wiretaps, and national security letters. CLICK NOW Repeal telecom immunity and roll back PATRIOT ACT abuses PETITION Now is the time. Senators Russ Feingold and Dick Durbin have now introduced the JUSTICE Act to bring an end to telecom immunity and roll back some of the worst abuses of the PATRIOT ACT. The ACLU chimes in: "Please contact your Senators and your Representative right now and tell them it is time to make these crucial changes to the surveillance law in order to secure our inherent rights to privacy."

    Info on Podcast #49 Published on 14 October 2009 by admin in Podcast Info Sibel Edmonds ungagged!, part 3 of 3. In this final installment, Sibel gives us a guided tour of the Turkish network of influence in the US. As a guide, we cite the work of Luke Rosiak at the Sunlight Foundation, and his chart of the Turkish Lobby you can find here. We name names: the last 3 Speakers of the House are all registered lobbyists for Turkey: Livingston, Hastert and Gephardt. Along the way, Sibel describes the “deep state”–the real US government with Henry Kissinger and his crony Brent Scowcroft influencing every administration and linking US foreign policy to the interests of our military-industrial complex. We also look closely at the role of Bruce Fein in advancing Turkish interests, which seems to conflict with his advocacy for our Constitution and the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. And Sibel has special criticism of Colin Powell for failing to stand up to the bad policies and illegal events he witnessed as Secretary of State.
