Bill’s Links and More Site Update

Those of you familiar with the old Bill’s Links and More site will notice a recent change. Because the old site hadn’t been updated in quite a while and was in fact compromised, I decided to make the blog the main site and add the link pages to it for now. I may eventually republish something similar to the old site, but for the time being I will be recreating much of it here.

Checking more than 4 thousand links can be daunting, but it is necessary. I have so far completed a few of the old links pages and will be adding them to this blog as individual pages for you to peruse. The old links are being double checked and removed if they take too long to load or are obsolete. As time allows, more links pages will be added.

You’ll notice that the blog itself hasn’t been updated in quite a while either as I’ve been doing most of my writing elsewhere. That too will change and articles as well as links about a myriad of subjects will be published on the main page of this blog on a more regular basis. I will also be adding a contact me page and some other things to improve the functionality of the blog and make it easier to share and contact me for link additions or removals. Dead links will now be removed more quickly.

See you soon.

The FBI Orchestrates Most US Terror Plots

A recent Russia Today report reveals that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employs upwards of 15,000 undercover agents today, which is ten time more than they employed back in 1975. The FBI has built a massive network of spies – allegedly to prevent another domestic attack — but that network of spies actually orchestrates most US terror plots.

Aside from having a few spies too many, some of which are earning as much as much as $100,000 per assignment, you don’t have to dig too deep to see their accomplishments. Some of the FBI agents have pulled off terrorist stings that have stopped major attacks from happening since 9/11 on US soil. But here in the real world, the FBI has taken pages out of the CIA’s playbook. Many of these agents are responsible for plotting the very “terrorist” schemes that have been stopped.

In recent years the FBI has trained informants to snitch on suspected terrorists that they have set up from the get go. Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of CA Berkeley found striking statistics regarding the role of FBI informants in terrorism cases that the FBI has targeted since 9/11. One former top-level FBI official told Mother Jones that for every informant officially employed by the FBI, there are up to three unofficial agents working undercover.

The FBI Infiltrates Communities Where “Suspected” Terrorists Regularly Meet

According to the report, the FBI infiltrates communities where “suspected” terrorists regularly meet with others. When the FBI infiltrates these “suspected” terrorist communities, they encourage them and provide weapons, funds, and a plan, then bust them before the attacks happen. This method utilizes what amounts to nothing less than entrapment, not to mention participating in creating homegrown terrorism.

Keith Olbermann On The Neocon Job

Below is the transcript from the special comment on the Neocon Job from the December 6, 2007 Countdown with Keith Olbermann Show on MSNBC. Video of his special comment is available from MSNBC, YouTube, and Crooks and Liars:

Finally, as promised, a Special Comment about the President’s cataclysmic deception about Iran.

There are few choices more terrifying than the one Mr.. Bush has left us with tonight.

We have either a president who is too dishonest to restrain himself from invoking World War Three about Iran at least six weeks after he had to have known that the analogy would be fantastic, irresponsible hyperbole — or we have a president too transcendently stupid not to have asked — at what now appears to have been a series of opportunities to do so — whether the fairy tales he either created or was fed, were still even remotely plausible.

Look out world, here I come

I kept putting off setting up a blog on my site since I didn’t have any previous experience with them and couldn’t really see any reason why I needed one. Then I decided I needed a place to express my opinions and talk about what was on my mind and what was going on in my little part of the world. A way to interact with others.

As someone who had little or no experience with php, mysql, ftp and a few other things I was a little intimidated at first. But, the best way to learn something is by doing it. If you make mistakes, and be assured you will, you can always go back and correct them. Believe me, if I can do this, any one can!

After spending 3 weeks checking out various blogging systems and content management systems I finally decided on WordPress. It has numerous features and is easy to install and set up. I tried B2Evolution, MyBloggie, Serendipity php weblog and Nucleus. I was looking for something simple to use that worked well.
