Christian Dominionists declare God destroyed wicked New Orleans 

While decent people reach out to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, there is no bottom to the hate-filled extremist Christians who blame the disaster that has ravaged New Orleans on its "citizens" who "tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so long."

Beware, these Christian Dominionists are taking over America in order to impose their hateful, wrathful, warmongering and blood-lusting god on us all. They already control the White House and Congress and soon will control the courts.

If you have any doubt about them and their intention, the below press release, reproduced here in full, is just one disgusting example of the depth of their depravity.

Repent America Press Release:

ACT OF GOD DESTROYS NEW ORLEANS
DAYS BEFORE "SOUTHERN DECADENCE" 8/31/05

PHILADELPHIA - Just days before "Southern Decadence", an annual homosexual celebration attracting tens of thousands of people to the French Quarters section of New Orleans, an act of God destroys the city.

"Southern Decadence" has a history of filling the French Quarters section of the city with drunken homosexuals engaging in sex acts in the public streets and bars. Last year, a local pastor sent video footage of sex acts being performed in front of police to the mayor, city council, and the media. City officials simply ignored the footage and continued to welcome and praise the weeklong celebration as being an "exciting event". However, Hurricane Katrina has put an end to the annual celebration of sin.

On the official "Southern Decadence" website (www.SouthernDecadence.com), it states that the annual event brought in "125,000 revelers" to New Orleans last year, increasing by thousands each year, and up from "over 50,000 revelers" in 1997. This year’s 34th annual "Southern Decadence" was set for Wednesday, August 31, 2005 through Monday, September 5, 2005, but due to massive flooding and the damage left by the hurricane, Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco has ordered everyone to evacuate the city.

The past three mayors of New Orleans, including Sidney Barthelomew, Marc H. Morial, and C. Ray Nagin, issued official proclamations welcoming visitors to "Southern Decadence". Additionally, New Orleans City Council made other proclamations recognizing the annual homosexual celebration.

"Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city," stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. "From ‘Girls Gone Wild’ to ‘Southern Decadence,’ New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. May it never be the same," he continued.

New Orleans is also known for its Mardi Gras parties where thousands of drunken men revel in the streets to exchange plastic jewelry for drunken women to expose their breasts. This annual event sparked the creation of the "Girls Gone Wild" video series.

"Let us pray for those ravaged by this disaster. However, we must not forget that the citizens of New Orleans tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so long," Marcavage said. "May this act of God cause us all to think about what we tolerate in our city limits, and bring us trembling before the throne of Almighty God," Marcavage concluded.

"[God] sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:45)

Rev. Pat 'Assassinate Chavez' Robertson, a lethal example of Christian 'love' 

Are there still those out there who think we can be nice to these psychopaths, such as the Rev. Pat Robertson who yesterday called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez?

Imagine what would happen to us if we called for the assassinations of the monsters in Washington, along with the monsters behind the curtain who control them. We would be charged as terrorists, labeled 'enemy combatants' and sent to rot in Gitmo, if not executed at the pleasure of you-know-who.

Don't hold your breath waiting for George W. to even denounce Robertson, much less declare him a terrorist and have him hauled off to one of the Bush Gulags.

It's time to stop fooling around, folks, thinking we can be polite to such bloodthirsty, war-loving, gold-worshipping excrement or suffer the consequences. And excrement on the soles of your shoes is what they are.

These trash people have gone beyond their trash talk and their smear tactics to frighten decent and rational people into shutting up and doing their bidding under the guise of bogus patriotism.

Cindy Sheehan has stood up to them without mincing words, which has sent them into a frenzy. The rest of you can, too. Let's send them into such a frenzy that they implode.

I don't know what god Pat Robertson and his ilk worship, but it isn't a loving god. And for them to claim they are Christians is blasphemy.

It is time to let them know we are mad as hell and aren't going to take their crap any more; that they should consider themselves endangered feces—feces so poisonous that it can't be used for fertilizer.

China raises oil stakes: China National Petroleum bids for Petrokazakhstan 

In another round of the mushrooming geostrategic and economic Cold War over oil, and shifting regional alliances aimed at countering a belligerent United States, China National Petroleum Corporation has placed a bid to acquire Petrokazakhstan, just weeks after China National Offshore (CNOOC) lost (or, more accurately, was refused) its bid for Unocal.

According to the AP report:

“Beijing is especially interested in Kazakhstan, which is expected to become one of the world's leading oil producers. The discovery of the huge Kashagan oil field on its Caspian Sea coast in 2000 prompted some in the industry to call it the ‘Kuwait of Central Asia.’

“Chinese President Hu Jintao visited Kazakhstan in July and signed an agreement with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev to develop a ‘strategic partnership.’

“The two governments already are partners in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization—a six-nation security group led by Beijing and Moscow that is meant to combat Islamic extremism in Central Asia.

There are several interesting aspects to this development. Clearly, China knows, as does the Anglo-American axis, that oil is the key to national security, and is willing to resort to dramatic (and some say desperate) measures for every drop. This apparently includes paying a high price for Central Asian/Caspian riches that have turned out, so far, to be a disappointing non-bonanza, including Tengiz/Kashagan, It remains to be seen if China and Petrokazakhstan know something Western majors have missed, or Nazarbayev and Petrokazakhstan are selling the Chinese a dry hole.

The other fascinating aspect is the irony. The lure of the energy riches of Kazakhstan, and the vision of Central Asian pipelines were the focus of many years of corruption and set-up leading up to 9/11, and in many ways, 9/11 itself.

This corruption involved as much as $1 billion in bribes to Nazarbayev, Dick Cheney (then-member of the Kazakh state oil advisory board), former Attorney General John Ashcroft, ExxonMobil and BP-Amoco. Details on this case can be found in the following stories, and the case remains the subject of a Justice Department probe:

Gaza realities 

Ali Abunimah, one of the most compelling voices on Israel-Palestine since Edward Said, says the Gaza pullout is, in part, propaganda fakery. Israelis have flown in Jews from all over the world to stage the weepy spectacle to garner sympathetic images for worldwide media.

Meanwhile, according to Abunimah, the brutal Palestinian realities remain unchanged. Jewish settlements on the West Bank, housing thousands more Jews than Gaza, continue to be built up, Palestinians continue to suffer in poverty, living in what is still a virtual prison, under Israeli guns.

Go to 8/18/05 broadcast featuring an interview with Ali Abunimah.
