Dick Cheney invite to American Museum of Fly Fishing sparks anger

When the American Museum of Fly Fishing hooked Dick Cheney for a fund-raising dinner, critics howled that they should throw him back.

Cheney - whose Secret Service code name was "Angler" - spearheaded energy policy at the White House and bears blame, detractors say, for the Bush administration's poor environmental record.

"The entire fly fishing community is appalled and disgusted," said Ted Williams, conservation editor at Fly Rod & Reel magazine.

Porn in the USA: Conservatives Are Biggest Consumers

8 of Top 10 Porn-Consuming States Voted Republican in 2008 Presidential Election.

Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds.

John Bolton at CPAC: The Benefits of Nuking Chicago

Former UN Ambassador John Bolton believes the security of the United States is at dire risk under the Obama administration. And before a gathering of conservatives in Washington on Thursday morning,  he suggested, as something of a joke, that President Barack Obama might learn a needed lesson if Chicago were destroyed by a nuclear bomb.

Sci-fi Raytheon riot control

Two years ago the UK Ministry of Defence's Strategic Trends depicted an alarming futuristic scenario in which middle-class radicals could engage in revolutionary activity with violent 'flashmobs', threatening the authorities with lawless disorder.

The US military sees the modern city as the battleground of the 21st century. Now it's reported that the Pentagon is experimenting with an array of weapons, including the Active Denial System (ADS), a microwave 'ray gun' designed by Raytheon, which directs unbearable heat on the skin from a 2km distance and is specifically designed for crowd dispersal.

TVNL Comment: As we have said many times, the term "national security" is code speak for securing the ruling class from the nation.

Why so many Holocaust films now, and for whose benefit?

The near-simultaneous appearance of all these movies is to some degree a coincidence, but it throws into relief the curious fact that early 21st-century culture, in Europe and America, on screen and in books, is intensely, perhaps morbidly preoccupied with the great political trauma of the mid-20th century.

The number of Holocaust-related memoirs, novels, documentaries and feature films in the past decade or so seems to defy quantification, and their proliferation raises some uncomfortable questions. Why are there so many? Why now? And more queasily, could there be too many?

Vatican scrambles as holocaust-denying Bishop promises to 'look again'

The Vatican is in damage control mode in a continuing row over a Bishop who recently espoused beliefs that the Nazis did not use gas chambers to murder Jews, and that far fewer than 6 million were slaughtered during the Holocaust.

"Since I see that there are many honest and intelligent people who think differently, I must look again at the historical evidence," he told Der Spiegel, according to the Jerusalem Post. "It is about historical evidence, not about emotions. And if I find this evidence, I will correct myself. But that will take time."

TVNL Comment: The term "denial" is used as a weapon against anyone who questions the account of the Holocaust. There are serious questions as to the details of the historical account. There is valid suspicion that the details of the losses and horrors suffered by Jews was exaggerated to in order to invoke sympathy and support for the creation of a Jewish state. Most people accused of denying the Holocaust are not doing so, they are simply questioning the details and extent of what happened.

Halliburton spinoff prepares to admit bribery

Court papers filed in Houston on Friday show Kellogg, Brown & Root LLC is preparing to plead guilty to violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for promising and paying tens of millions of dollars in bribes to officials in Nigeria in exchange for engineering and construction contracts between 1995 and 2004.
