Columbus Was A Prick

It's "Columbus Day" here in the United States. I give you excerpts from a 1998 article entitled Columbus Day is nothing to celebrate:

In 1492, as any schoolchild knows, Columbus sailed from Spain with three small ships, searching for a new sea route to the rich countries of India and China. He didn’t find India, but he did stumble upon the Americas. On October 12, his flagship, the Santa Maria, ran aground on a reef just off the coast of the island of Hispaniola. The local chief of the Arawaks, the native inhabitants, rescued Columbus's crew and welcomed them warmly, in accordance with their customs.

The Spanish sailors did not share the Arawak custom of sharing and peaceable coexistence. They spied the tiny gold ornaments the Arawaks were sporting and decided that the region was swimming in riches. Columbus also noticed that the locals had no weapons capable of resisting Spanish rule. As historian Howard Zinn documents in “A People’s History of the United States” (Harper & Row, 1980), Columbus wrote in his journal, "They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane .... With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want."

After King Ferdinand granted him governorship of the region, Columbus and his men captured Arawaks by the thousands, forcing them to procure gold. Those who could not produce the required amounts had their hands cut off and were left to bleed to death. Columbus forced the men to work in Spanish gold mines and the women to grow food. Natives who resisted the new rulers were hunted down with dogs and burned alive or hanged.

Despite these horrors, history books commonly portray Columbus as a hero. Historians have long sugarcoated the slaughter, noting Columbus' atrocities only in passing or explaining away his barbarous acts as being "just how things were done in those days."

We have been misled about Christopher Columbus. As the truth emerges, Americans of all ethnic and religious affinities are joining Native Americans in refusing to celebrate Columbus Day. The death and slavery of Indians is nothing to celebrate.

Spying on the home front

This is Mark Klein. Klein worked for more than 20 years as a technician at AT&T. Here he tells the story of how he inadvertently discovered that the whole flow of Internet traffic in several AT&T operations centers was being regularly diverted to the National Security Agency (NSA). Klein is a witness in a lawsuit filed against AT&T by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which alleges AT&T illegally gave the NSA access to its networks.

Read the interview at the link below. Get angry. People believe a police state is when the police stop you from doing things. It is not, it is when everything is allowed to be policed, with the power of stopping you when they so wish.

Bilderberg 2007

Another year, another Bilderberg meeting that the press has largely ignored. Lets say Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan and about 200 other Hollywood celebrities gathered once a year for a "secret" meeting at some plush hotel around the world. The press would be all over that place trying to find out what the hell was going on. So why don't they care when hundreds of the worlds most powerful people, from royalty to active politicians, CEOs, reporters (that don't report what is discussed) and more go have a chit-chat for about 5 days?

New to Bilderberg? This guy lays it out pretty well if you want a quick video rundown.

Once again, has good coverage of the 2007 meeting which just finished last week. Apparently they were in Istanbul Turkey this year. James Tucker, of The American Free Press, flew out there, as he does every year, and probably got some good info that he'll be publishing soon. That guy has got to be pushing 80 and he's still going. Bless him. More information about the 2007 gathering, along with articles and a list of people who were there, can be found here: Check out the previous years and meetings while you're at it. One thing that is interesting to note is the politicians that are "summoned" to these meetings. People like Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and others have attended in recent years. The general conclusion is if you get invited to one of these meetings, then the "elite" have big plans for you. Tony Blair attended before becoming Prime Minister. Bill Clinton was there before becoming president. There is a pattern here.
