15 MILLION TO SELL IRAQ WAR ON TV BEFORE NEXT SEPTEMBER 11TH 

........now the Democrats, along with wavering Republicans, will face an advertising blitz from Bush supporters determined to remain on offense. A new pressure group, Freedom’s Watch, will unveil a month-long, $15 million television, radio and grass-roots campaign today designed to shore up support for Bush’s policies before the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, lays out a White House assessment of the war’s progress. The first installment of Petraeus’s testimony is scheduled to be delivered before the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees on the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a fact both the administration and congressional Democrats say is simply a scheduling coincidence.

The leading Democratic candidates for the White House have fallen into line with the campaign to praise military progress while excoriating Iraqi leaders for their unwillingness to reach political accommodations that could end the sectarian warfare.

Group to Urge War Support
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
Published: August 22, 2007

WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 — A new group of prominent conservatives plans to begin a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign Wednesday to urge members of Congress who may be wavering in their support for the war in Iraq not to "cut and run."

The group, Freedom's Watch, is rolling out television, radio and Internet advertisements in more than 20 states and 60 Congressional districts.

Ari Fleischer, President Bush's former press secretary and a spokesman for the group, said it would initially spend $15 million on the effort, which will also encourage voters to put pressure on their representatives for continued support of the war.

Mr. Fleischer declined to say in an interview Tuesday which members of Congress were on its list, but he indicated that it would include some Republicans as well as Democrats.

Mr. Fleischer said the central message of Freedom’s Watch is that “the war in Iraq can be won and Congress must not surrender.”

The advertisements feature Iraq war veterans and parents of veterans who lost family members in the war urging lawmakers who have supported the war not to switch their vote.

Defend Rosie & Protect Freedom of Speech in America

Defendrosie.com | April 4, 2007
Paul Joseph Watson

Rosie O'Donnell has been savagely attacked by talking heads on major news networks and others simply for exercising her first amendment right to ask questions about 9/11, questions that are shared by the majority of family members of the victims.

A relentless campaign on behalf of anti-American haters of free speech is underway to force ABC to fire O'Donnell from her position as host of The View . This petition was created to show that a significant and vocal number of Americans recognize and support Rosie O'Donnell's stance in displaying the highest form of patriotism - asking questions of government and demanding the truth about what really happened on 9/11.

Calls for Rosie to be fired, censored, and in one case even executed , came after Rosie simply raised the question of what caused WTC Building 7 to collapse on September 11.

WTC 7 was a 47-story building in the WTC complex that was not hit by a plane yet collapsed in a perfect symmetrical implosion at freefall speed in the late afternoon of September 11.

If the collapse of the building was an accident, why were ground zero personnel, firefighters and police told to vacate the area surrounding Building 7 in advance because the structure was to be brought down?

If the collapse did not involve the use of demolition charges, why did NYPD officer Craig Bartmer report bombs tearing down the building as he ran away from it?

Why did WTC complex leaseholder Larry Silverstein admit on a 2002 PBS documentary that WTC 7 was deliberately pulled?  To "pull" is industry jargon for controlled demolition. Why has NIST changed its explanation for the collapse of Building 7 on several different occasions and why to this day has it still not come to a conclusion ?

How can fire damage have caused the building (which had been structually reinforced) to collapse in freefall when photos taken immediately before it fell show limited fires confined sporadically to just eight floors? Why did news networks like CNN and BBC report the collapse of WTC 7 over 20 minutes before the building actually fell?

Why are news networks like Fox, CNN and MSNBC so eager to throw out ad hominem insults and employ smear tactics against Rosie O'Donnell simply for raising these kind of questions yet universally refuse to debate the cold hard facts surrounding Building 7?

Why are enemies of free speech attempting to have Rosie O'Donnell thrown off the air simply for discussing this issue?

Show your support for Rosie's stance, for the survival of free speech in America and for a full investigation of what really happened on 9/11 by signing this petition. Send a message to those that wish to create a chilling atmosphere of intimidation that their anti-American assault on the bill of rights and the first amendment will be repelled by a substantial and sustained counter-attack.

[VOTE NOW!] ABC NEWS POLL - Rosie's New Feud: Whose Side Are You On?
After you've signed the petition, vote on this poll and keep showing your support for Rosie

Rosie is ahead in the Poll! NEARLY TWO TO ONE!!! Let's make the gap even wider!!! 
 
Show your disdain for the threats made to her life: PETITION

After signing, please re-post this on the Internet, and to all of your friends!!! Thank you!

Hiring, paying and training Professional Disruptors -- we have seen it.

With the growing influence of web sites and chat rooms in political public opinion, it has become obvious that neocon political organizations are hiring, paying and training professional disrupters. These individuals are paid to go into sites and chat rooms that have political significance (like Care2 or Pal Talk) to neutralize and disrupt any liberal leaning conversation and/or any criticism of the Bush administration or the neocon agenda.

[This by the way, was posted in a group by Carlos A. I hope he doesn't mind my using it.]

Just remember Howard Dean’s great success on the internet. That success explains why the politicos would want to spend the money.

The phenomena is not new, back in the heyday of the now defunct MSN chat rooms, most liberal leaning rooms were constantly plagued by these neocon spin doctors and assorted disrupters. [The original disrupters were patronized by Jewish organizations like the Anti Defamation League to fight Arab anti Semitism;]{I can't verify this, BT}; but the techniques soon jumped over to the neocon camp, specially after Bush got “elected” by the Supreme Court. Currently, it won’t take more than 15 to 20 minutes in a liberal leaning Pal Talk chat room to find a gaggle of these nuisance characters.

It’s easy to identify them, look for the following:

1.- Most of them have memorized “talking points” that they repeat verbatim. Save for the most able, it’s difficult to make them talk outside of their learned discourse.

2.- They seldom work alone, they arrive in pairs or threesomes, with one posing as liberal.

3.- They will try anything to disrupt the flow of conversation, usually with the most outrageous statements. They don't care on winning a debate, just to distract and change the subject.

4.- When the above fails, they resort to insults and personal attacks, including threats, veiled or otherwise.

I have found that the very best defense against them is to ignore them. Just remember that they are paid professionals to keep your cool. If they attack you just stick to the original theme of the conversation. They will sometimes leave when they find their drivel ineffective.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since I haven't gone to any other chat rooms for a long, long time -- I suspected, but I didn't know, what was going on there, too!

These are the reasons we have had to "clean up" groups like Amnesty International, block people from groups, and make more and more groups into Closed Groups, here on Care2. Since these people can change identities with ease, there is hardly any way to permanently get rid of them; tho, they obviously DON'T belong here!

Ignoring them is excellent advice, too; unfortunately, not always possible. They can be EXTREMELY vicious; have really hurt people, and driven some, even, off of Care2, either temporarily, or permanently.

I am putting all this here, for anyone new to Care2, to the Internet, or new to the kinds of Disruption faced, to see it.

"............ it has become obvious that neocon political organizations are hiring, paying and training professional disrupters. These individuals are paid to go into sites and chat rooms that have political significance (like Care2 or Pal Talk) to neutralize and disrupt any liberal leaning conversation and/or any criticism of the Bush administration or the neocon agenda."

Remember, that since these types are PAID PROFESSIONALS, their vicious attacks on you are NOTHING PERSONAL, AND HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU AS A PERSON. It is merely their job that they are doing. Likewise, sinking to their level and attacking them back, will be like hitting a stone wall. It won't make YOU feel much better; and, to them, it's all part of the job they are getting paid for; so, why should they care what you think???!!!

One strategy I use, is to be TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS in my attacks on Bush, etc.; come on STRONGER each time they attack! Defeats their Boss's purpose, nicely!!!
