Political Body Slams: Vince McMahon vs. the State/WWE Director Lowell Weicker vs. Nixon, Lieberman & the Neo-Cons/The Politics of WWE
One reason for the rush to judgment regrading the role steroids played in the Benoit murder/suicide may be that some government lawyers hope that if they can pin this tragedy on Benoit's use of steroids, they can launch an investigation into whether other World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) stars are using steroids. This may allow the federal government to avenge one of the few high-profile defeats suffered by federal prosecutors in recent times.
In the early nineties, the feds indicated WWE Chairman Vince McMahon on charges of using and distributing steroids. Aswe all know, most businessmen in Mr. McMahon's situation would have accepted the government's plea offer. Instead, Mr. McMahon told the government's lawyers where they could shove their plea offer, went to trial, and was acquitted on all charges. Wonder how many federal Nifongs are gleefully rubbing their hands at the thought of having another shot at the businessman that got away?
DIRECTOR: Lowell P. Weicker, Jr.
Gov. Lowell P. Weicker, Jr. has been a Director of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. since 1999 and is Chairman of the Compensation Committee. Mr. Weicker served as Governor of the State of Connecticut from 1991 to 1995. He served as a United States Senator representing the State of Connecticut from 1970 to 1988. Gov. Weicker also serves as a director of Compuware Corporation, HPSC, Inc., Phoenix Mutual Funds, Medallion Financial Corp. and UST Inc.
LOWELL WEICKER vs. NIXON, LIEBERMAN AND THE NE0-CONS
... he served in the U.S. Senate for three terms, from 1971 to 1989, before being defeated for a fourth term by Joe Lieberman. He gained national attention for his service on the Senate Watergate Committee. During his Senate service, Weicker was always regarded as somewhat of a maverick, and a liberal voice in an increasingly conservative Republican Party.
President Reagan referred to him in his diaries as "a pompous, no good, fathead", a reflection of Weicker's attitude towards the Reagan administration.
Weicker's tense relations with establishment Republicans may have roots in receiving strong support from President Nixon in his 1970 Senate bid, support repaid in the eyes of his critics by a vehement attack on the White House while serving on the Watergate Committee. Later, his relations with the Bush family soured, and the brother of then Vice President Bush (Prescott Bush, Jr.) made a short-lived bid against Weicker to gain the 1982 Republican Senate nomination. Finally, conservative animus spilled into overt support for Joe Lieberman in 1988, both from national sources such as National Review (publisher William F. Buckley, Jr., and his brother, former New York Senator James Buckley, both endorsed and campaigned for Lieberman in 1988), but more importantly, from rank-and-file Connecticut Republicans irate with Weicker's effort to make the local party more liberal and prevent the nomination of conservatives to state office, and the poor showing of Weicker-backed candidates in the 1986 elections. Weicker was defeated in the 1988 election by less than 1% of the vote, owing in large part to defections by Republicans to Lieberman. ...
Weicker's political career appeared to be over after his 1988 defeat for reelection to the Senate by Lieberman, and he became a professor at The George Washington University Law School. However, two years later, he ran for Governor of Connecticut as a member of "A Connecticut Party" against Republican John G. Rowland and Democrat Bruce Morrison.
The most volatile issue facing Connecticut at that time was the attempt to implement a broad-based state income tax. Connecticut traditionally had no state income tax except for a fairly steep one imposed on "unearned income" such as interest and dividends. Weicker ran on a platform of solving Connecticut's fiscal crisis without the implementation of the broad-based income tax to include the taxation of earned income. Weicker won on election day 40-37% over Rowland, losing Fairfield and New Haven counties to Rowland, but drawing especially strong support from the Hartford metro area, where he had been strongly endorsed by the Hartford Courant and by many state employee labor unions. Weicker gained national attention through his upset victory. Democratic candidate Bruce Morrison’s distant third place showing in a relatively Democratic state shows that Weicker gained a large amount of his support from Democrats.
However, shortly after his inauguration, Weicker reversed his position and became an advocate of the tax that he had campaigned against. Liberal forces applauded his "political courage" and his willingness to "face reality", while conservative forces were equally quick to denounce him in no uncertain terms as a "liar" and a "traitor." The broad income tax he had come to favor passed the General Assembly. However, a huge protest rally in Hartford held shortly after it was implemented and the withholding for it begun, attracted over 50,000 participants. After this, the Assembly passed a measure repealing the broad-based income tax, which was subsequently vetoed by Governor Weicker. The override of the veto fell a vote short, and the massively unpopular tax was kept in effect. Weicker's critics are quick to blame his implementation of the state income tax for Connecticut losing one congressional district as a result of the 2000 census (based on a theory that the tax negatively impacted Connecticut population growth).This position was held by the conservative Yankee Institute, which claimed in August 2006 that after 15 years the income tax had failed to achieve its stated goals However, Weicker also has a cadre of supporters who insist that he was the only person who could have solved the state's ongoing fiscal problems and had the courage to address them directly and forthrightly, and also note that the enactment of the income tax was coupled with a reduction of the state's sales tax to a level comparable to that of surrounding states, benefitting Connecticut merchants.
Critics respond that since the income tax was implemented that studies show that Connecticut has gone from being one of the lowest-taxed per capita of the fifty states to one of the highest, if not the highest. However, Weicker supporters contend that only since his implementation of the income tax has there been an adequate stream of state revenue, including funding for areas which Connecticut voters had previously expressed support for in theory but then were unwilling to pay for, and note that Connecticut still has the highest per capita income of any of the 50 U.S. states. Weicker has a reputation, in any event, for courting controversy, and as such is well-liked by his friends and deeply disliked by his detractors.
Weicker is generally well regarded by liberals, and is harshly criticized by many Republicans and some Democrats, such as Joseph Lieberman. The income tax controversy may well have prompted Weicker not to seek any further term as governor, but there seems to be little indication that he had ever intended to make that office a career as he had his Senate service.
Supporters of the income tax also pointed to the state spending cap added to the state constitution in 1992 as a benefit from its enactment. In 2007 Governor Jodi Rell proposed a budget that far exceeded the spending cap, causing one observer to remark that 16 years of fiscal discipline were being jettisoned. . Ironically Rell had been an anti-tax state legislator in the early 1990s.
Weicker did not seek re-election as governor in 1994. In 2000, he endorsed Senator Bill Bradley (D-NJ) for President. In 2004, Weicker supported former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean's (D-VT) presidential bid.
2006 candidacy for U.S. Senator from Connecticut
Main article: Connecticut U.S. Senate election, 2006
Lowell Weicker was said to be considering a rematch against Senator Joe Lieberman in the 2006 election cycle. He objects to Lieberman's support for the Iraq War and noted in a New York Times article published on December 6, 2005,
The Lieberman campaign released an ad which borrows from one aired during the 1988 Senate race, which depicted Weicker as a hibernating bear ignoring his Senate duties except at election time. In the 2006 ad, Weicker reappears as a wounded bear while Lamont is depicted as a bear cub sent and directed by Weicker....
On June 18, 2006, Weicker held a fundraiser for Lamont and described himself as an "anti-war activist."

WHAT IS *GOVERNMENT* (FEDERAL SECTOR) DOING IN AMERICAN SPORTS - INCLUDING WWE WRESTLING AT THIS TIME??? BEFORE & AFTER CHRIS BENOIT'S DEATH????
1) This report *NOW GONE/DISAPPEARED FROM WWE's OWN WEBSITE* - http://www.wwe.com/inside/news/benoitupdate - (WWE.com - June 25th 2007 *Monday*) - "Benoit failed to appear both at Saturday's live event in Beaumont, Texas, and WWE's Vengeance: Night of Champions in Houston Sunday night, after informing WWE of a family emergency.
Several curious text messages sent by Benoit early Sunday morning prompted concerned friends to alert Richard Hering, VP of Government Relations for WWE, Inc.
Hering, in turn, spoke with Fayette County sherrifs Monday, and requested they respond to the Benoit residence to check on him and his family. http://www.geocities.com/theexposureguy/wwe.jpg
NOTE: (...LOOK BETWEEN 1 & 2 FOR CONFLICTING REPORTS AT SAME TIME. POSSIBLY LINKING THESE 2 STORIES....) [_JUNE 28th 2007_]

An IP address, a unique series of numbers carried by every machine connected to the Internet, does not necessarily have to be broadcast from where it is registered. The bodies were found in Benoit's home in suburban Atlanta, and it's not known where the posting was sent from, Bass said."
3) This news report (DailyHerald.com - June 29th 2007 *Friday*) - Wrestler's Web page updated before bodies found - http://www.dailyherald.com/story.asp?id=327581
"ATLANTA -- Investigators are looking into who altered pro wrestler Chris Benoit's Wikipedia entry to mention his wife's death hours before authorities discovered the bodies of the couple and their 7-year-old son.
A Wikipedia official, Cary Bass, said Thursday that the entry was made by someone using an Internet protocol address registered in Stamford, Conn., where World Wrestling Entertainment is based.
An IP address, a unique series of numbers carried by every machine connected to the Internet, does not necessarily have to be broadcast from where it is registered. The bodies were found in Benoit's home in suburban Atlanta, and it's not known where the posting was sent from, Bass said.

5) This report (FoxNews.com - June 28th 2007 *Thursday*)...Web Time Stamps Indicate Nancy Benoit's Death Reported on Web at Least 13 Hours Before Police Found Bodies in Her Home....
The posting apparently was made in reference to Benoit's scheduled appearance on Sunday night at an Extreme Championship Wrestling event in Texas.
An employee from Wikipedia.org told FOXNews.com that he called and left a message with investigative authorities in Fayetteville, Ga., at around 11 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, after the posting was brought to the attention of the St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Web site.
The computer-generated time and date stamp of the Benoit entry are listed as 4:01, 25 June 2007. Wikipedia.org lists its entries according to Universal Time, also known as Greenwich Mean Time.
Further investigation, according to Wikipedia.com, shows that one hour after the first edit reversion, another anonymous edit by 22.214.171.124 using unwiredAustralia.com.au, a wireless Internet service provider, was made adding about the aforementioned personal issues:
That edit was reverted less than 20 minutes later, with the following comment:
A message left by FOXNews.com with Lt. Tommy Pope of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department was not immediately returned.
Investigators so far have ruled the Benoit killings as a double homicide-suicide.
Wikipedia.org claims to be one of the largest reference Web sites, and is written collaboratively by users from around the world. Approved users can make submissions and change entries that are posted on the site almost immediately. Bass said the site is constantly monitored to correct inaccuracies.
Bass said when there is a high-profile case, such as the Benoit killlings, Wikipedia.org limits postings to registered users, which is now indicated at the top of the Benoit entry. According to the listed history on the Benoit entry, the computer used to post the 12:01 a.m. entry had a Stamford, Conn., Internet Protocol — or IP — address, a numeric designation that is assigned to every computer with an Internet connection, and that same address has been used to post about a dozen other messages on the site, dating back to May 16, 2007."

COMMENT: Now with seeing Government Relations (VP) Richard Herring, of WWE, Inc. this would PROVE that our Government is within Professional Wrestling with this PDF REPORT PROOF on "Minutes Of The House Economic Development Committee", that you have seen above, within this topic issue of interest into the Chris Benoit independent investigations by myself about Government within Professional Wrestling and our National Sports .....
Now also remember this folks .... That in my video! I have said and stated on ( My thoughts, Feelings and Opinions, etc. ) .... That our Government and Vince McMahon, are behind Chris Benoit and his Family's deaths.
Of course ** I DO NOT HAVE PROOF AT THIS TIME ON THESE ACCUSATIONS ON THIS SPECIFIC TOPIC **, that they did do this. But please remember, that the NWO - ( New World Order ) is in-fact "REAL IN REALITY" and that is DEFINATELY OUR GOVERNMENT that's within professional sports in this country.
And for YOUR EYES as PROOF that the NWO ( New World Order ) that they had promoted as a WRESTLING GROUP IN WCW WRESTLING ON ( July 7th 1996 ) .... THIS VIDEO will show YOU the viewer. That the "New World Order" DOES EXIST IN REALITY!!! ... and that this would be ENOUGH to cause our Government and Vince McMahon to put a HIT out on Chris Benoit and his Family and would STAGE there deaths as if Chris Benoit committed the actual murder-suicide atrocities before the public in order to Cover-up their own doings.
VIDEO: Proof of NWO from George Bush SR's OWN MOUTH - http://youtube.com/watch?v=_CWBTL33MpA
Now I know already, that 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB!!! that was carried out by *Criminal Elements* within our Government. That would lead us into war, in which we are already "Years Later" into the still "On-going" war in Afghanistan, Iraq and the "Global War on Terror".
Now our government has naval warships outside of Iran looking for an EXCUSE and A REASON to attack and invade Iran to start World War III.
Also remember that AFTER the events of 9/11. Our government accused Iraq of having WMD's ( Weapons of Mass Destruction ) ... in which there was NEVER ANY WMD's FOUND. *Mainstream News Reports* http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=no+wmd+found+in+iraq ... now in the latest news reports on Iran that is coming out. Our government "Once Again", is accusing IRAN -- NOW AT THIS TIME!!!! of having Weapons of Mass Destruction ( WMD's ). So now we have this same situation as a 9/11 SCENARIO ALL OVER AGAIN ....
So my gutt feelings are, that there's a good chance! that if they are going to try another Massive "Staged Terror Attack", that is ... (* CRIMINAL ELEMENTS WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT *) upon the United States of America ... in which they would be hitting, an WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment ) Live or Scheduled Wrestling Event at the time. Killing hudreds ... ( If not! ) ... "Thousands" of people once again. This time *LIVE ON TELEVISION* infront of a MILLIONS of people, from around the Globe watching a WWE *Live Event* happening on TV at that specific time slot.
Remember that WWE is in-fact "A Globalization Type of Sport" that is famous and seen around the world by MILLIONS of WWE Wrestling Fans from around the globe. Which is the same exact situation that happend on 9.11 ( September 11th 2001 ) that had people from ALL Around the World, had watched in horror ... as the terror attacks was happening at that point in time that was, "LIVE ON TELEVISION". Which would give them an immediate REASON and EXCUSE needed to THEN go into Iran after the NEXT "Staged Terror Attack", that would happen in America by design.
But now remember ladies n' gentlemen ... that this is "ONLY MY FEELINGS, THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS AT THIS TIME" so that you know my feelings behind this scenerio plot and how this points to the Chris Benoit independent investigation ....
Now, I do feel, that maybe Chris Benoit MAY HAVE stumbled upon into something horrific, CONCERNING about another staged terror attack against the WWE within the organisation. And if this was to be the case of "IF" and "WHEN" they we're going to hit an actual Live-Wrestling-Event. This would have gave them A REASON to take Chris Benoit and his FAMILY OUT. Because with Chris Benoit's FAME at the time ... people would have immediately LISTENED to what he had to say, as he would have come out to expose the plans to the public as a warning. Which would have EXPOSED THEM and there ENTIRE OPERATIONS for an "Planned Staged Attack" that was yet to come ......
Now also remember folks! that Chris Benoit WAS working for the World Wrestling Entertainment ( WWE ) sport at this time. But remember that I am just SHOWING YOU ALL at this point ... that "Richard Herring" (VP) of Government Relations WWE, Inc. which is involved in our American sport of Professional Wrestling right now. And there is NOTHING SANE, that Chris Benoit ( MAY HAVE STUMBLED UPON ) into a staged terror attack Plot & Scenario Conversation. And therefore ... if THIS WOULD HAD HAPPEND ... they would have STAGED the Murder-Suicide to KEEP CHRIS BENOIT AND HIS FAMILY QUIET to do anything about it, and to stop Chris Benoit from informing the public about this emergency matter.
Also do remember ... that above in this topic section of my blog into the Death of Chris Benoit and his family ... we already do have live recorded amateur video footage online of our military ( OUTSIDE A WRESTLING EVENT ) of what appears to be some type of "Excercise Drill" of military on the streets of America. And on that "License Plate" of the vehicle in the video footage that you all have SEEN of the "Military Spooks and Goons", of which the license plate of the GOVERNEMENT VAN VEHICLE, that those National Guard/Homeland Security Troops we're riding off in .... SAYS .... --> (* U.S. GOVERNMENT - G43 - 18591 - For Official Use Only! *) ( They quickly added *CHRIS BENOIT* to fill out the group. ) NWO IN WCW WRESTLING & THE (*REAL*) NEW WORLD ORDER OF (REALITY vs FICTIONALIZED PROPAGANDA ENTERTAINMENT BY THE GLOBAL ELITE)!!
Why is it that in the mid-90's that there was such a group called the nWo (New World Order) that was Fictionalized within WCW Wrestling at this time???
Not knowing that behind this Fictionalized Wrestling group of Reality, that there IS IN FACT a powerful Global Elite Faction of very Powerful and Rich (Royal Families, Central Banking Elite, Heads of powerful TOP Corporations) that in FACT want to bring in a World Wide Tyranny of ( Globalization ) and control of a New World Order.??? Where NO NATION shall be *Independent or Sovereign of Borders* ruled under the U.N. *United Nations* and NO FREEDOMS ( unless condoned under the U.N. Constitution Charter) shall deem necessary of the Rule of Law of UN Freedoms. Under which in the constitutions ending sub-sections that claims that in, the end ... YOU HAVE NO FREEDOMS unless the U.N. SAYS you do!!!

COMMENTS: Hulk Hogan talks about in this Video of the beginning formation propaganda into WCW Wrestling of the nWo ( TED TURNER ) The Billionaire was talked about in Hogan's coming out in the formation of the beginning of the nWo group that would NOW enter WCW Professional Wrestling!!! So it should make people REALIZE AND THINK!!! What did Vince McMahon and Ted Turder ( Behind The Scenes ) talk about in bringing in a group called ... the NWO ( New World Order ) since Ted Turner is KNOWN to be a Global Elite Minion in reality. To propagandize their new world order agenda to the PUBLIC and the PUBLIC would NOT recognize it at all at the time....
IMPORTANT NOTE: Just to let you the visitors see and realize about this crucial topic that, even though they we're PROMOITING the NEW WORLD ORDER ... THESE WRESTLERS HAD NO-IDEA THAT THE REALLLLL NEW WORLD ORDER EVER EXISTED. And it was ONLY Doing the Script-Line of what they we're TOLD to do and play and ACT OUT into their Role Characters. And by NO MEANS ... THEY WE'RE (THE WRESTLERS) NOT INTO THE ROLE OF THE REALLL NEW WORLD ORDER ....
