A hellishly hair-raising coverup?
On August 20, 1994, a white buffalo was born on a farm in Janesville, Wisconsin, fulfilling ancient predictions of many Native Americans tribes that peace will come to men of all colors when the white buffalo returns. As a white buffalo matures, it's hair changes colors, becoming yellow, brown and black - the colors of all human races - before becoming white again.

-- Lynne D. Finney, J.D., M.S.W., writing in NewsMax

Ms. Finney is the latest witness against John Bolton. And she has plenty to say -- not just about Bolton:
Finney, whose anti-Bolton charges have been the subject of stories in the Los Angeles Times, USA Today and other papers, also claims to have been taught by "Tibetan monks and Master Nome in Santa Cruz, California." Master Nome is a Hindu religious teacher. Finney was described by The New York Times as "a leading practitioner of recovered-memory therapy, including the use of self-hypnosis, a practice that some studies have shown can result in the creation of false memories."

"In this new millennium, we entered an era of human evolution where we can reinvent ourselves and create new realities," the Finney website declares. "We all have the ability to clear out our limiting beliefs and behaviors and tap into the infinite power of Consciousness." The website describes her "many realities," including as "diplomat" and "United Nations policy advisor to the Agency for International Development." The latter is apparently a reference to the position in which Finney claims to have been yelled at by Bolton, then the top lawyer at USAID.

Reached by telephone, Finney refused to comment, saying, "I'm not going to talk to the press until after the [Senate Foreign Relations] committee interviews me, which I understand is going to be sometime this week…I've just been advised to do that."

Stories say that Finney emailed her comments about Bolton to liberal Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, a strong opponent of Bolton and member of the committee, who passed them on to the press.

The DC Examiner reports more nonsensical utterances, and speculates about the motives of the Democrats:
Anyway, while we were enjoying the new-age loopiness at lynnefinney.com (see sidebar), we didn't have time to call Sen. Boxer and ask her whether she even believes this kooky story. Somebody ought to do that.

Whatever her answer, it is easy to come to the conclusion that Democrats don't care. This isn't about facts. If Democrats cared about those, they'd debate the Bolton nomination on the merits. Bolton has said controversial things about the United Nations that assure he won't be welcomed with open arms by the international diplomats in Manhattan, N.Y.

The problem for Democrats is that most Americans agree with Bolton. The United Nations is a corrupt dictators club badly in need of reform. The scandals of oil-for-food and sexual abuse have tarnished an image already suffering from inaction in Iraq, Rwanda and Darfur.

So since Democrats can't fight about the U.N., they have to debate something else. That leaves only Bolton's character as a lever to keep him out of the United Nations and deal a blow to the Bush Administration's aggressive foreign policy.

So much for the New Age aspect of the get-Bolton circus. I want to examine whether there's anything substantial to Ms. Finney's, um, allegations.

Here's what she said on Friday, via a letter to Senator Boxer:

On Friday, Lynne Finney, a former legal adviser to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), sent a letter to Sen. Barbara Boxer (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif. Finney wrote that Bolton "screamed that I was fired" when she refused to lobby for a weakening of restrictions on the sale of infant formula in the developing world.

State Department deputy spokesman Adam Ereli said "no one at USAID at the time has any recollection" of such an incident. Ereli denied that the Reagan administration tried to weaken a 1981 U.N. recommendation against the use of formula in poor countries. "People who are opposed to the nomination are using vague memories and personal charges to attack what is substantively a strong nomination," Ereli said.

According to the letter, a copy of which Boxer‘s office e-mailed to USA TODAY, the incident took place in late 1982 or early 1983, when Bolton, as the top lawyer at USAID, outranked Finney. She was on the staff as a legal adviser. Boxer‘s office verified that Finney sent the letter.

Finney, who is now a motivational speaker, said in the letter that she cared about world peace and wanted to help defeat Bolton‘s nomination. She did not return phone messages left at her home.

That's it? I care about world peace too, but I don't see what saying "you're fired" in a dispute over infant formula has to do with it.

Obviously, further medication meditation is needed to make the requisite connection. ("Creating realities," as another blogger put it.)

Formula? Peace? Formula for Peace? Peace. On. Earth? Purity Of Essence?

How about creating the reality of satanic ritual abuse? Yes, the latter is discussed at Ms. Finney's website. [Specifically, she claims to have "worked with" "victims of satanic ritual abuse victims "as a therapist."] According to ReligiousTolerance.org, it has never been demostrated that "Satanic Ritual Abuse" even exists. However, it's closely associated with "Recovered Memory Therapy."

Might there be a hidden reason why John Bolton has such a bushy head of hair? Has anyone actually inspected his head to see whether he has the 666 tattoo? Has he been examined carefully for signs of horns? He may keep them filed down. Not a new idea among Satanists.


Isn't it time to at least take a look?

AFTERTHOUGHT: I realize this is my third post (see infra here and here) about a serious situation and I should probably apologize for the buffoonery in this one. I do try to take these things seriously. Sometimes I just get carried away with newly recovered realities I've created.

Fun ...

What has amazed me about this whole episode is how effective the Democrats have been in getting their nomination objects into play in the media. Silly stuff about chasing girls through the halls of a Moscow hotel gets more play that serious objections about Mr. Bolton's history in government ever would.

Eric, I have a question for you:

Do you want the U.S. to go to war with Iran and Syria? If you do, Bolton is your man. If you are not sure, maybe it's better to go with someone else. Bolton is the guy that the Bush Administration knows will push their lies through the U.N. without hesitation or remorse.

Few people could be trusted to do this.

Not even Colin Powell was successful at it. And he's been undermining the Bolton nomination from behind the scenes as fast as he can.

I also received the RNC e-communications remarks about what to say about Bolton. You're hitting the right points and from a very creative angle. But stepping back ... How does a Bolton nomination serve the country?

War with Iran and Syria? What kind of war? It's cold now, but if Iran is allowed to get the bomb, there'll be a hotter kind of war altogether, and I won't have wanted it.

Isn't whether I might "want" war pretty much irrelevant? I'd have to be crazy to actually want war, but I do think there are different ways of avoiding war -- and Reagan's belligerence won the last Cold War.

I tend to go with "si vis pacem para bellum." (If you want peace prepare for war.)

Just to be flippant for a moment:Anyone else notice the similarities getween the Bush administration and the Borg?'Resistance is futile! You will be assimilated into the New World Corporate Order!'On a serious ending note, the Bush administration has just declared war on everyone else in space. I'm beginning to wonder if these clowns aren't rogue Scientologists who took L. Ron Hubbard's disgusting science-fiction vision of A future and are trying to make it THE future.Softwaredata recoveryVoIPWhat is WiFiInternet TelephonyVoIP ProviderVoIP SoftwareVoIP Services What is VoIPVoIP Phone SystemVoIP DrawbackVoIP ArchitectureVoIP Solutions VoIP ReviewsVoIP TechnologyWiFi CardsWiFi AntenaWiFi IEEE WiFi RangeWiFi WAPWiFi futureWiFi SecurityWiFi Hotspot WiFi BluetoothWiFi Drawbackwhat is data lossdata recoveryraid data recoverydata recovery softwarehard drive data recoverydata recovery servicehard disk data recoverydisk data recovery emergency data recoveryrecovery solutionsComputer Data RecoveryNetwork securityFireWall securityAbout UsNetwork securityContact usSite MapFirewallSecurity TipsFirewallRole of IPHacker TechnologiesVPNRelated Topics Application Layer AttacksIP AddressingIP Spoofing Netwark security scannerNetwork packet sniffersPassword attacksProtecting confidential informationSecurityTrusted Networkbusiness cardsflightsfirewallcar rentalnetwork securitycruisesweddingcorporate giftscheap flightsantivirus softwareBackground ChecksCRMVOIPFree VoIPDefinition of VOIPVoIP ArchitectureVOIP ReviewsAuto Telephone DialersUnlimited Free VOIPCRM software reviewsVOIP TechnologiesVoIP ProviderBPOWiFi Certification
