The World's Most Powerful Woman?

I doubt it. But, she is no doubt the world's coldest and most calculating bitch. How does she do it? She's not married; no kids. How does she manage to find the immoral fortitude to lie so often and with such gall?
On her visit to Blackburn and Liverpool, Condoleezza Rice, US secretary of state, told her audience that the citizens of “Baghdad and Beirut and Cairo and yes, Tehran” would realise their “impossible dreams” for democracy . . .

“They will remember fondly those other great democracies… who stood with them in their time of need,” she said, in a reference to the war in Iraq.

About 200 protesters at a Blackburn voiced their opposition to Rice's visit, some carrying signs that read: How many lives per gallon? Blood, Lies, Oil, War.

Rice said she wasn't surprised by the protests, calling it an essential element of a healthy democracy.

"People have the right to protest. That's what democracy is all about."

She also said the US was ready to help Iran with humanitarian aid after the country’s earthquake the previous night.
She failed to mention that the aid would likely be delivered on the back of a nuclear missile.

Scary, ain't she?

Its in the neoconservative job description. No, really. The godfather of neoconservative thought, Leo Strauss, promoted a twisted interpretation of Plato's Noble Lie.

According to Political Science and Philosophy Professor Shadia Drury,

A second fundamental belief of Strauss’s ancients has to do with their insistence on the need for secrecy and the necessity of lies. In his book Persecution and the Art of Writing, Strauss outlines why secrecy is necessary. He argues that the wise must conceal their views for two reasons – to spare the people’s feelings and to protect the elite from possible reprisals.
...
Now, the ancients were determined to keep this tyrannical teaching secret because the people are not likely to tolerate the fact that they are intended for subordination; indeed, they may very well turn their resentment against the superior few. Lies are thus necessary to protect the superior few from the persecution of the vulgar many.

The effect of Strauss’s teaching is to convince his acolytes that they are the natural ruling elite and the persecuted few. And it does not take much intelligence for them to surmise that they are in a situation of great danger, especially in a world devoted to the modern ideas of equal rights and freedoms. Now more than ever, the wise few must proceed cautiously and with circumspection. So, they come to the conclusion that they have a moral justification to lie in order to avoid persecution. Strauss goes so far as to say that dissembling and deception – in effect, a culture of lies – is the peculiar justice of the wise.

Boy, that's one mean-ass looking witch of a picture you found of her. What do you think the odds are that someday in the not too distant future, Disney cartoonists will use her portraiture as a model for a Cruella Deville like female villain in one of their movies?

Commentary & links to pics of the Liverpool & Blackburn demonstrations are at

She was definately not made welcome. At the concert at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, she had to enter (& leave) the building via a side door, rather than acknowledge the 2500 protestors in view of the front entrance

She isn't a real women or black person though. She is a rich corporate terrorist white male pretending to be female and black.
