Richard Perle : The Prince Of Darkness Speaks Rewites History & The Right Claims Obama and Liberals Responsible For Economic Meltdown

Anyway first a little road trip with Alexandra Pelosi into the Heart Of Darkness or the Heartland of America.

Pelosi's film about the Republican campaign in the 2008 election is a must see; it is at once disturbing and scary and yet she does manage to elicit some sympathy for these ultra-Conservatives for whom the election campaign is seen as America's last chance to save itself from the Evil Godless Liberals who are out to turn America into a Communist Fascistic type state where these true or Real American's will no longer have a say in their countries future.

HBO's "Right America Feeling Wronged" by Alexandra Pelosi

Rachel Maddow reveals how naive she really is - Pelosi calls her attitude " sweet" She does not realize that there really are two distinct Americas and that those who supported and still support McCain/Palin and the Former Bush Regime believe that the Bush Regime truly represented their Christian American values and that they see that it is all now slipping away. They believe Obama will destroy America. Maddow is also not right about those who sell their souls since those around Bush have done really well for themselves. Those who should be chastised or imprisoned are making book deals and going on the lucrative lecture circuit or go to work at Fox News.

Anyway Neocon Richard Perle " The Prince of Darkness" uses his hypnotic and mesmerizing Svengali- like power to rewrite history. Given the way Republicans and conservatives have been talking since the November election it appears the mess America is in economically and otherwise is the fault not of Bush and the Neocons but is rather the fault of Obama and the evil liberals. Right before your very eyes these masters of deceptions , lies and propaganda are rewriting American history. The funny thing is which is not really that funny is that their mesmerized followers and their media Spin Meisters such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck , Bill O'Reilley etc. and Fox News are in fact blaming the mess on Obama and those who support him. It seems that somehow the US deficit and the the meltdown of the economy was secretly engineered by the liberal elite and has nothing to do with the disastrous deregulation policies and corruption of the Bush Regime or its fighting two costly wars .

Richard Perle claims Neoconservatives Not Responsible for Iraq War
and he says there's No such thing as a Neoconservative
Perle says it was all a dream or nightmare

Stuff Richard Perle claims he didn't say?

" Well, about Saddam Hussein, the essential point is that he's a thug who has been willing to murder some of the people closest to him, who has used chemical weapons against his own people, who has invaded his neighbors. He is probably the most dangerous individual in the world today."

and Saddam is ...
" Capable of anything. Capable of using weapons of mass destruction against the United States, capable of launching other military maneuvers as soon as he thinks he can get away with it."

The question of Saddam Hussein is at the very core of the war against terrorism. There can be no victory in the war against terrorism if, at the end of it, Saddam Hussein is still in power -- not only because he supports terrorism, not only because he trains terrorists [Editor's Note: see the interview with a defector on Iraq's alleged terrorist training camp.] and gives them refuge -- but because he is the symbol of defiance of all Western values. He succeeded in throwing the United Nations out. He's violated all of the undertakings that followed the end of the Gulf War. As long as he is there, we are in danger, and we are in danger from terrorist activity.

I think sensible people looking at the dangers to the United States, recognizing how we failed adequately to contain terrorism before Sept. 11, will conclude that with [Saddam Hussein's] hatred of the United States, with his blood feud with former President Bush -- [which] could extend to George W. Bush as well -- to leave him in place and wait for him to take action against us is simply too dangerous."

"To some of his opponents, Richard Perle has emerged as the mysterious Svengali behind George W. Bush’s Iraq policy. He’s been called a hawk and a neo-conservative, both of which are part of a worldview with a long and distinguished pedigree. Today, Perle is the chairman of the Defense Policy Board, a civilian group that advises the Pentagon. Host Ben Wattenberg talks with Richard Perle about the origins of Perle’s personal philosophy, as well as the current crisis with Iraq. "

Ricard Perle in Wonderland- Washington Post

and as Dana Milbank argues that Perle is trying to convince us that he and other Neocons had little or no influence over the Bush administration. What he wants us to believe is that there was no propaganda war engineered by Perle or Karl Rove etc. to convince Americans and the world that Saddam was an imminent threat to the United States and that Saddam was involved somehow in the 9/11 attacks. Many Americans still believe in all the nonsense and Bull they were fed by the Neocon/Bush /Cheney propaganda machine at the Ministry of Truth. We should remember that some 58 million Americans voted for John McCain and Palin and therefore against Obama because they believed all the lies and propaganda doled out to them on a daily basis by the Bush Regime. What is one to believe if every day Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh etc. tell you that Bush and Colin Powell never lied to the American People and that WMDS were found or had been removed from Iraq before US troops arrived and that Saddam was planing on attack the US or Israel . So the America which Obama has been left with is in a mess and is a divided country .

Prince of Darkness Denies Own Existence By Dana Milbank
Friday, February 20, 2009

Listening to neoconservative mastermind Richard Perle at the Nixon Center yesterday, there was a sense of falling down the rabbit hole.

In real life, Perle was the ideological architect of the Iraq war and of the Bush doctrine of preemptive attack. But at yesterday's forum of foreign policy intellectuals, he created a fantastic world in which:

1. Perle is not a neoconservative.

2. Neoconservatives do not exist.

3. Even if neoconservatives did exist, they certainly couldn't be blamed for the disasters of the past eight years.

"There is no such thing as a neoconservative foreign policy," Perle informed the gathering, hosted by National Interest magazine. "It is a left critique of what is believed by the commentator to be a right-wing policy."

So what about the 1996 report he co-authored that is widely seen as the cornerstone of neoconservative foreign policy? "My name was on it because I signed up for the study group," Perle explained. "I didn't approve it. I didn't read it."

Mm-hmm. And the two letters to the president, signed by Perle, giving a "moral" basis to Middle East policy and demanding military means to remove Saddam Hussein? "I don't have the letters in front of me," Perle replied.

Richard Perle. The Prime mover in the Neocon movement, actually somehow manages to deny the influence of the neconservatives on the Bush administration, or the Iraq invasion.

Perle's Deceptions By Philip Weiss at Information clearing house

February 21, 2009 "Mondoweiss" -- - Watching C-Span just now, I caught some of Richard Perle's denial of neoconservatism's influence in an event at the Nixon Center yesterday and had a few impressions.

Perle said that the reason for the Iraq war was the Bush administration's fear post-9/11 that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and they would fall into the wrong hands. He said: You have to know what it felt like after 9/11 to have to worry about this.

That was his first deception. Because, actually, we all know what it felt like. We were there too. And Bush and the neocons invaded Iraq 18 months later. Plenty of time to think things over.

Jim Lobe of Inter Press almost got Perle pinned in the last minute or two, till the moderator cut things off. Lobe read from neoconservative ads that Perle had signed (from the Project for the New American Century) calling for regime change. Lobe pointed out that one ad spoke of grand plans for the Middle East. "Israel's fight is our fight." That ad is all about remaking the Middle East, Lobe said.

Perle is tough. He tried to smooth his way past Lobe's true statement of the ad's message. Yes it is our fight, Perle said. We were "plagued" by suicide bombing. "Suicide bombing achieved prominence, became the instrument of choice, in terrorist attacks against Israel." And when Israel was being attacked, "the rest of the world didn't take it seriously."

As we see below Fox News and the Republicans and the Conservatives are sticking to their Talking Points as given to them by the Neoconservative Spin Meisters . These "True Believers " in the Bush/Cheney Regime are unable to come to terms with reality and the real history of the last eight years. Whenever reality gets in the way of their view of the world Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity etc. will get them back on track telling them that the Bush was America's greatest president and all was well til Obama took power. Obama they claim used his evil super-powers to deceive a large segment of the American people but they being more aware of the "real situation " in America remain unconvinced and therefore still pure in their vision and love of America.

Fox passes off GOP press release as its own research -- typo and all

Summary: In purporting to "take a look back" at how the economic recovery plan "grew, and grew, and grew," Fox News' Jon Scott referenced seven dates, as on-screen graphics cited various news sources from those time periods -- all of which came directly from a Senate Republican Communications Center press release. A Fox News on-screen graphic even reproduced a typo contained in the Republican press release.

and so it goes,
