Connecting Dots & Bill-n-Hill Show! We start with a bit of connecting the dots with this item from NY Observer's Mark Ames Untangling the Bizarre CIA Links to the Ground Zero Mosque. Get a big sheet of paper and make your own flow chart! Then in a related item NYT's Rober Mazur hits us with Follow the Dirty Money KEYWORD Wachovia! More dot-connecting comes from The Nation's Jeremy Scahill in Blackwater's Black Ops (see DN! in the BTV alerts for his interview). Glenn Greenwald has an update on the Administration's despair over the "Professional Left" in Obama's view of liberal criticisms: "Contrary to what many of you thought, it's these flaws within yourself that cause you to be dissatisfied with the administration, not because of any of this:" (Go to link for great headlines!) And last week GOLD reached a new all-time high with George Soros quipping, "I called gold the ultimate bubble, which means it may go higher. But it’s certainly not safe and it’s not going to last forever". Thanks, George! Stewart Thomson @ 321gold connects more GOLD dots in "The Gold Controllers Want Price Higher" pointing out 15. There is another, far more ominous issue to consider. The question, as you are now aware, is not how high gold is going. The question is: What level of gold price is required to make debt service practical? The answer to that question depends, horrifically, on the velocity at which the banksters are marking OTC derivatives to market. Read it all to help balance your portfolio! Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi connects more banker flim-flam dots in Wall Street Strikes Again: Sewer Hikes in Alabama. Here's one dot that seems to baffle the administration and the Beltway Bubalas, from ERIC MARGOLIS @ The Al Qaeda threat is "exaggerated": 120,000 US Troops fighting "No More that 50 Members of Al Qaeda" explaining The [IISS] report, presided over by the former deputy director of Britain’s foreign intelligence agency, MI-6, says the threat from al-Qaeda and Taliban has been "exaggerated" by the western powers. The US-led mission in Afghanistan has "ballooned" out of all proportion from its original aim of disrupting and defeating al-Qaeda. The US-led war in Afghanistan, says IISS, using uncharacteristically blunt language, is "a long-drawn-out disaster". Just recently, CIA chief Leon Panetta admitted there were no more than 50 members of Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Yet US President Barack Obama has tripled the number of US soldiers there to 120,000 to fight Al Qaeda....The IISS report goes on to acknowledge the presence of western troops in Afghanistan is actually fuelling national resistance. I saw the same phenomena during the 1980’s Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Interestingly, the portion of the report overseen by the former MI-6 Secret Intelligence Service deputy chief, Nigel Inskster, finds little Al Qaeda threat elsewhere, notably in Somalia and Yemen. Yet Washington is beefing up its attacks on both turbulent nations. Doubtful the "Professional Right" will cover any of this on Sunday as they focus on shiny tea-bagger-like objects and their "Conventional Wisdom" navels. Let's go to the video! Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON goes to This Anampour while hubby BIG DAWG gets in with Face the Bob and Meet the David. Anampour also visits with Iranian Prez AHMADINEJAD while Gregory also chats with COLIN POWELL. Look for JIMMY CARTER on 60 Minutes and State of the Candy talks elections politics with Teabagger JIM DEMINT and DNC Chair TIM KAINE. Throw bricks at KARL ROVE for fun AND even profit (see Max below Group offers $100,000 for ‘information leading to the arrest and conviction of Karl Rove’) haha! Plenty more info in the BTV Alerts and our regular features too! The Brick TeeVee crew found a flyer stuck in the compound front door and found our own teabagger, right in our hood! The flyer informed us, "I'm reaching out to you because, as you probably know, our individual liberties are at stake" and "We need to become a break-wall and unify" plus "...we can elect morally and fiscally responsible leaders that believe in limited government and our way of life in Lake County." Ah, but then the clincher! "a TRUE TEA PARTY CANDIDATE!" BWAAAHAHAHAHAAAA! The race? County freakin' Commissioner!! It really amazes us how so many teabaggers believe "gummint is the problem" that want to become PART of the "gummint", then get in there and prove they HAVE NO CLUE how to do their jobs thus making it a closed loop of insanity! Who can forget "Heckuva Job horse-club-lawyer Brownie" and the EPA's Christine “ground zero air is safe to breath” Todd Whitman? Have great week and get busy working for your favorite candidate! See you in DC next month?


And you thought you'd escape any mention of OIL! HAHA!
IN DEEP WATER: The Anatomy of a Disaster, the Fate of the Gulf, and How to End Our Oil Addiction. by Peter Lehner via
“If you’re looking for something that connects the dots between the BP oil disaster, the harm it’s done to the Gulf of Mexico and the people paying the price, this book is it. In a clear and compelling voice, it explains the worst environmental catastrophe of our time, then shows the way forward to protect this national treasure, safeguard our future and break our destructive addiction to oil.” — Robert Redford

One Nation Working Together is a social movement of individuals and organizations committed to putting America back to work and pulling America back together. Coming from a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, beliefs and orientations, we are determined to build a more united country with good jobs, equal justice, and quality public education for all. Get involved HERE!!!
We're looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn't be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it's appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles. Are you one of those people? Excellent. Then we'd like you to join us in Washington, DC on October 30 -- a date of no significance whatsoever -- at the Daily Show's "Rally to Restore Sanity." Ours is a rally for the people who've been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) -- not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority. If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence... we couldn't. That's sort of the point. Get involved HERE!!!
Offshore Drilling is Not The Answer: Restore the Moratorium
from Surfrider Foundation (h/t jen)
The tragic and devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a stark reminder that offshore oil drilling is not the answer.
The Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded and sank has spilled millions of gallons of oil into the ecologically rich waters in the Gulf of Mexico and continues to gush 210,000 gallons of oil into the sea every day. The spill remains unabated and now has the potential to become one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. The unfolding catastrophe clearly illustrates that offshore drilling is not safe and new technology is not fool proof.
Tell the Obama Administration new drilling is NOT THE ANSWER. Our coasts and the economy they support cannot withstand anymore!
We are reminded why the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill led to state and federal moratoriums on offshore oil drilling. The tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico makes it clear that it is time once again time to restore those moratoriums.

    • This week on Ring of Fire Radio, the Democratic Nominee for the United States Senate, Congressman Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania, will enter the Ring to talk about his nationally important race against…wait for it…the former president of the Club for Growth. With just over six weeks to go before the election, this is a race that really matters…for all of us, not just Pennsylvanians.

    • VIDEO! Papantonio: Tea Party Wins if Progressives Don’t Act The Republican Tea Party is celebrating their victories in yesterday’s primaries, but Progressives should be celebrating as well. This Tea Party is pushing the GOP even further to the right, which could mean that moderates and RINOs are left with only one place to go – The Democratic Party. Mike Papantonio appears on The Ed Show to talk about why the Republican Tea Party is a good thing for progressives.
