Bush Approval Rating Hits the 20s for
First Time
May 12, 2006

NEW YORK President Bush’s job
approval rating has fallen to 29%, its
lowest mark of his presidency, and down
6% in one month, according to a new Harris
poll. And this was before Thursday's
revelations about NSA phone surveillance!

Why is Bush Approval Ratings dropping
so drastically?
Is it because of Gas - War - Spying on the
American Public - Lying to the American
Public - Profiting off the hardships of
Others.
Could it be 'Maybe - just Maybe' ..
ALL THE ABOVE
Bush claims that he doesn't pay any
attention to the POLLS...
Well that pretty much sums it up for me.
America has become a one man show -
No longer does our opinion count -
No longer does our politicians work for the
people.
Some how the American citizens have lost
control of their own government .
And does Bush Care What we Think.
He has already answered your questions on
this ..time and time again. "Hell No - I don't
listen to the Polls"  I do what "I" think is
right for the American People -
Oops- another lie _ He should say " I do
what I think is right for 'Big Business' -
which will take good care of me after Iam
out of the office."

Dear Mary,

First, I feel compelled to write
and thank you so very much for
the hours and hours of hard work
and dedication you have for
America B.C.
   I am a student of The
Shepherds Chapel, and so every
time I come across someone who
has worked as hard as you have to
bring truth to our people in the
U.S. about our heritage, I cannot
pass up the chance to tell you just
how important, even vital your
work truly is. I was fascinated to
learn of the underwater river from
Greenland! Also, you probably
aready know about the
documentaries The Chapel has
produced, like the one about
Iberian pictographs by Barry Fell,
(God rest his wonderful soul),
also Hueco Tanks in Texas, The
story of Doc and Ova Noss at
Vittorio Peak, also The story of
David Wyrick who
uncovered a keystone with The
Ten Commandments inscribed in
paleo-Hebrew, found at a mound
site in Ohio. Again, thank you so
much for your tireless efforts,
they do not go unnoticed, because
for every one like me who writes
to thank you, there are a hundred
that are every bit as amazed!!
Again, keep up the wondeful
work.
Yours,

What is the National Guard and its
Duties
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








The United States National Guard is a
component of the United States Army
(the Army National Guard) and the
United States Air Force (the Air
National Guard). The Militia Act of
1903 organized the various state militias
into the present National Guard
system. The Army National Guard is
part of the United States Army,
comprising approximately one half of
its available combat forces and
approximately one third of its support
organization. The Air National Guard is
part of the United States Air Force.
Both are maintained through the
National Guard Bureau, whose Chief is
a Lieutenant General.

Various State Militias also exist which
are reserves to the National Guard and
are collectively known as State Defense
Forces. The State Militias, in some
cases, pre-date the existence of the
National Guard and are maintained on
both an organized and unorganized
level. The organized militia exists to
supplement the National Guard in the
event of manpower shortages while the
unorganized militia comprises every
able bodied male in a state which may
be called up for extreme emergencies
such as an invasion of the United States
or a major catastrophe inside her shores.
The last time that the unorganized state
militias were activated was during the
Civil War.

Army National Guard units are trained
and equipped as part of the United
States Army; likewise, Air National
Guard units are trained and equipped as
part of the US Air Force. The same
ranks and insignia are used and National
Guardsmen are eligible to receive all
United States military awards. The
National Guard also bestows a number
of state awards for local services
rendered in a service member's home
state.

Traditionally, National Guard personnel
serve "One weekend a month, two
weeks a year", although a portion serve
in a full-time capacity. This slogan has
lost some of its relevance since the Iraq
War, when up to 40% of total US
forces in Iraq and Afghanistan consisted
of mobilized personnel of the reserve
components.

Prior to the attacks against the United
States on September 11, 2001, the
National Guard's general policy
regarding deployment was that
Guardsmen would be required to serve
no more than six months overseas at
any time. Due to strains placed on
active duty units following the attacks,
the possible deployment time was
increased to 18 months. Additional
strains placed on military units as a
result of the invasion of Iraq further
increased the amount of time a
Guardsman could be deployed to 24
months. Current Department of
Defense policy is that no Guardsman
will be involuntarily activated for a total
of more than 24 months (cumulative) in
one six year enlistment period (this
policy is due to change 1AUG2007, the
new policy states that soldiers will be
given 24 months between deployments
of no more than 24months, individual
states have differing policies). The
Army National Guard is composed of
325,000 Soldiers

Phone Companies Facing Massive
Lawsuits

 Questions Raised for Phone Giants in
Spy Data Furor
   By John Markoff
   The New York Times

   Saturday 13 May 2006










   The former chief executive of Qwest, the
nation's fourth-largest phone company,
rebuffed government requests for the
company's calling records after 9/11
because of "a disinclination on the part of
the authorities to use any legal process,"
his lawyer said yesterday.

   The statement on behalf of the former
Qwest executive, Joseph P. Nacchio,
followed a report that the other big phone
companies - AT&T, BellSouth and
Verizon - had complied with an effort by
the National Security Agency to build a
vast database of calling records, without
warrants, to increase its surveillance
capabilities after the Sept. 11 attacks.

   Those companies insisted yesterday
that they were vigilant about their
customers' privacy, but did not directly
address their cooperation with the
government effort, which was reported on
Thursday by USA Today. Verizon said
that it provided customer information to a
government agency "only where authorized
by law for appropriately defined and
focused purposes," but that it could not
comment on any relationship with a
national security program that was "highly
classified."

   Legal experts said the companies faced
the prospect of lawsuits seeking billions of
dollars in damages over cooperation in the
program, citing communications privacy
legislation stretching back to the 1930's. A
federal lawsuit was filed in Manhattan
yesterday seeking as much as $50 billion in
civil damages against Verizon on behalf of
its subscribers.

   For a second day, there was political
fallout on Capitol Hill, where Senate
Democrats intend to use next week's
confirmation hearings for a new C.I.A.
director to press the Bush administration
on its broad surveillance programs.

   As senior lawmakers in Washington
vowed to examine the phone database
operation and possibly issue subpoenas to
the telephone companies, executives at
some of the companies said they would
comply with requests to appear on Capitol
Hill but stopped short of describing how
much would be disclosed, at least in public
sessions.

   "If Congress asks us to appear, we will
appear," said Selim Bingol, a spokesman at
AT&T. "We will act within the laws and
rules that apply."

   Qwest was apparently alone among the
four major telephone companies to have
resisted the requests to cooperate with the
government effort. A statement issued on
behalf of Mr. Nacchio yesterday by his
lawyer, Herbert J. Stern, said that after the
government's first approach in the fall of
2001, "Mr. Nacchio made inquiry as to
whether a warrant or other legal process
had been secured in support of that
request."

   "When he learned that no such authority
had been granted, and that there was a
disinclination on the part of the authorities
to use any legal process," Mr. Nacchio
concluded that the requests violated federal
privacy requirements "and issued
instructions to refuse to comply."

   The statement said the requests
continued until Mr. Nacchio left in June
2002. His departure came amid accusations
of fraud at the company, and he now faces
federal charges of insider trading.

   The database reportedly assembled by
the security agency from calling records
has dozens of fields of information,
including called and calling numbers and the
duration of calls, but nothing related to the
substance of the calls. But it could permit
what intelligence analysts and commercial
data miners refer to as "link analysis," a
statistical technique for investigators to
identify calling patterns in a seemingly
impenetrable mountain of digital data.

   The law governing the release of phone
company data has been modified
repeatedly to grapple with changing
computer and communications
technologies that have increasingly
bedeviled law enforcement agencies. The
laws include the Communications Act, first
passed in 1934, and a variety of provisions
of the Electronic Communications and
Privacy Act, including the Stored
Communications Act, passed in 1986.

   Wiretapping - actually listening to
phone calls - has been tightly regulated by
these laws. But in general, the laws have
set a lower legal standard required by the
government to obtain what has
traditionally been called pen register or
trap-and-trace information - calling records
obtained when intelligence and police
agencies attached a specialized device to
subscribers' telephone lines.

   Those restrictions still hold, said a range
of legal scholars, in the face of new
computer databases with decades' worth of
calling records. AT&T created such
technology during the 1990's for use in
fraud detection and has previously made
such information available to law
enforcement with proper warrants.























   Orin Kerr, a former federal prosecutor
and assistant professor at George
Washington University, said his reading of
the relevant statutes put the phone
companies at risk for at least $1,000 per
person whose records they disclosed
without a court order.

   "This is not a happy day for the general
counsels" of the phone companies, he said.
"If you have a class action involving 10
million Americans, that's 10 million times
$1,000 - that's 10 billion."

   The New Jersey lawyers who filed the
federal suit against Verizon in Manhattan
yesterday, Bruce Afran and Carl Mayer,
said they would consider filing suits
against BellSouth and AT&T in other
jurisdictions.

   "This is almost certainly the largest
single intrusion into American civil liberties
ever committed by any U.S.
administration," Mr. Afran said.
"Americans expect their phone records to
be private. That's our bedrock governing
principle of our phone system." In
addition to damages, the suit seeks an
injunction against the security agency to
stop the collection of phone numbers.

   Several legal experts cited ambiguities in
the laws that may be used by the
government and the phone companies to
defend the National Security Agency
program.

   "There's a loophole," said Mark Rasch,
the former head of computer-crime
investigations for the Justice Department
and now the senior vice president of
Solutionary, a computer security
company. "Records of phones that have
called each other without identifying
information are not covered by any of
these laws."

   Civil liberties lawyers were quick to
dispute that claim.

   "This is an incredible red herring," said
Kevin Bankston, a lawyer for the
Electronic Frontier Foundation, a privacy
rights group that has sued AT&T over its
cooperation with the government, including
access to calling records. "There is no legal
process that contemplates getting entire
databases of data."

   The group sued AT&T in late January,
contending that the company was violating
the law by giving the government access to
its customer call record data and permitting
the agency to tap its Internet network. The
suit followed reports in The New York
Times in December that
telecommunications companies had
cooperated with such government requests
without warrants.

   A number of industry executives
pointed to the national climate in the wake
of the Sept. 11 attacks to explain why
phone companies might have risked legal
entanglement in cooperating with the
requests for data without warrants.

   An AT&T spokesman said yesterday
that the company had gotten some calls
and e-mail messages about the news
reports, but characterized the volume as
"not heavy" and said there were responses
on both sides of the issue.

   Reaction around the country also
appeared to be divided.

   Cathy Reed, 45, a wealth manager from
Austin, Tex., who was visiting Boston,
said she did not see a problem with the
government's reviewing call logs. "I really
don't think it matters," she said. "I bet
every credit card company already has
them."

   Others responded critically. Pat Randall,
63, a receptionist at an Atlanta high-rise,
said, "Our phone conversations are just
personal, and to me, the phone companies
that cooperated, I think we should move
our phone services to the company that
did not cooperate."

   While the telephone companies have
both business contracts and regulatory
issues before the federal government,
executives in the industry yesterday
dismissed the notion that they felt
pressure to take part in any surveillance
programs. The small group of executives
with the security clearance necessary to
deal with the government on such matters,
they said, are separate from the regulatory
and government contracting divisions of
the companies.

Protect your Car from Theft -
IMPORTANT!!
Here is info worth the price of your
car
WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF
NEXT?
       Seems that car thieves have
found yet another way to steal your
car or truck without any effort at all.
              The car thieves peer through
the windshield of your car or truck,
write  down the VIN # from the label
on the dash, go to the local car  
dealership and request a duplicate key
based on the VIN #.
     
       My friend didn't believe this
e-mail, so she called Chrysler-Dodge
and   pretended she had lost her keys.
They told her to just bring in the VIN  
#, and they would cut her one on the
spot, and she could order the  keyless
device if she wanted.
     
       The Car Dealer's Parts
Department will make a duplicate key
from the VIN  #, and >> collect > >>
payment from the thief who will
return to your   car.
     
       He doesn't have to break in, do
any damage to the vehicle, or draw
attention to himself. All he has to do
is walk up to your car, insert
the key and off he goes to a local
Chop Shop with your vehicle. You
don't believe it?  It IS that easy.
     
       To avoid this from happening to
you, simply put some tape
(electrical   tape, duct tape or medical
tape) across the VIN Metal Label
located on  the dash board. By law,
you cannot remove the VIN, but you
can cover it   so it can't be viewed
through the windshield by a car thief.
I urge you   to forward this to your
friends before some other car thief
steals   another car or truck. I slipped
a 3 x 5 card over the VIN NUMBER.
       OKAY, MAYBE YOU DON'T
DRIVE IN THAT CASE PASS THIS
INFORMATION ON TO   ALL
YOUR FRIENDS.

Llamas and the Bird Tribe
I have come across some
information you may find of
interest.

Yesterday I happened to mention
this to Dan Winter and he
immediately made the connection
to the bird tribes so now I am
starting my own research.

Our web site is
www.nemetonsanctuary.net Part of our
experience is that we live with three
llamas.  These are unusual animals that
we were drawn to for their intuitive and
mystical attributes.  They are unique in
the animal world in that they were
never used in wars, such a elephants,
horses and camels, but also, overall (not
specifically) they have avoided the
human food chain.

A couple of months ago, we had
one of our llamas seriously ill
with a menengeal infestation from
the overabundant deer that come
into our grazing pasture.  In the
process of diagnosing and treating
this condition, the vet told me
that they had to send the blood
samples away as he could not do
them in his lab.  I thought this
was strange as it is a long
established vet practice.  He then
explained to me that most
mammals, including humans, have
round blood platelets, with NO
nucleus.

Llamas are the only mammal that
he knew of that have oval blood
palettes, WITH a nucleus - like a
bird.

When you look into the face of a
llama, there is a tremendous
connection.  Now I understand
why they are so sensitive to the
subtle energies around them and
also why I was drawn to them.

If you have anything on this or
related ideas, please pass it along
to me.  I just ordered Ken Carey's
book - Return of the Bird Tribes.

Considering that llamas are native
to Peru, it seems like there is a
connection here in their
physiology that has given them
such a unique status.

Illegal-entry tide surges toward
Yuma
By Jacques Billeaud
The Associated Press
Tucson, Arizona | Published:
05.18.2006
advertisementYUMA — Over the
past year, this sandy stretch of desert
in southwestern Arizona has become
the nation's busiest immigrant-
smuggling hot spot, a place of
increasing banditry, violence,
desperation and death.
Border Patrol agents are seeing spikes
in arrests of illegal immigrants and
cases every day of criminals preying
on border crossers.
President Bush will be get an up-close
look today when he visits Yuma as
part of his push to overhaul the
nation's immigration laws and tighten
the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexican border
by sending up to 6,000 National
Guardsmen in a backup role.
A stretch to the east that includes
Douglas and Nogales used to be the
busiest spot along the border for
illegal entrants trying to slip across.
But authorities say a buildup there of
border agents and surveillance
technology caused a shift last year,
pushing illegal immigrants toward the
Yuma Border Patrol station.
The shift is part of a common pattern
seen in recent years: Crackdowns in
one section of the border send illegal
entrants and smugglers flooding to
other areas, creating an ever-changing
front.
"Yuma is becoming the focal point,"
said Border Patrol spokesman
Richard Hays.
At the Yuma station, which oversees
62 miles of the border, authorities
said agents are catching 300 to 450
illegal entrants a day, comparable to
last year's numbers, but they are
seeing unusual spikes, including 840
on a single day in March.
Law enforcement authorities said the
number of those who slip through is
greater than the number caught, but
they would not give any estimates.
Along the entire 125-mile Yuma
Sector, of which the Yuma station is a
part, Border Patrol agents have made
95,000 arrests since Oct. 1, a 13
percent increase from this time last
year, authorities said. The number of
Border Patrol agents assigned to the
sector has doubled to around 700 in
the past year.
An increasing number of illegal
entrants who bypass fortified
stretches of border are dying in the
desert. Known deaths in the Yuma
Sector hit a record 51 in 2005, up
from 36 in 2004 and 15 in 2003.
Daytime temperatures in Yuma can
climb to around 120 degrees — 10 to
15 degrees hotter than around
Tucson. Another danger: The area
includes an Air Force bombing range.
The Yuma station relies largely on
patrolling agents, radar, sensors,
cameras and observation towers. It
has only a few miles of fences.
Thirty minutes south of Yuma, in one
of the more active parts of the region,
there are two lines of defense: a 12-
foot corrugated metal fence that
divides the city of San Luis from
Mexico, and, about 50 yards north of
the border, an 8-foot chain-link fence
topped with barbed wire and towers
with surveillance cameras.
Many homeowners in San Luis have
wrought-iron fences around houses,
and yet they cannot leave their garage
doors open, for fear of thefts.
Roving gangs also wait in the dry
Colorado River bed for the right
moment to rob illegals.
