JUDAH BENJAMIN: THE BIG JEW OF THE CONFEDERACY

When we think of the Confederacy, the big names that automatically come to mind are the three legends carved into the side of Georgia's Stone Mountain: President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson. Significant figures for sure, but in the grander power-scheme of things, these men, including President Davis himself, were outranked by Judah P. Benjamin.

The fact that Benjamin's name is so relatively unknown is, ironically, testament to the awesome "behind-the-scenes" power that he wielded. Unfortunately for the South (and the North), Benjamin's influence served neither of the Americas. His loyalties lay elsewhere - in Rothschild's London!

PM to make direct appeal to US Jews in bid to thwart Iran deal

In the latest of a series of attempts to persuade US voters to push their legislators to reject the Iran nuclear deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will deliver an address to the North American Jewish community next week to discuss the agreement, which he staunchly opposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu:

1. Congress never listens to anything the American people have to say; only to the corporations which fund them, covertly and overtly.

Your friends in the American defense industry, which would LOVE to see the US start a war with Iran, no matter what horrific carnage would happen to both countries, would probably be most helpful here.

2. Opposition to this legislation is NOT veto-proof.

So sir, what do you intend to do when the Iran treaty is ratified by the US Congress?!? That is a question which keeps me up at night.

U.S. Names New Targets of Sanctions Over Ukraine

The Obama administration on Thursday identified 26 additional people and institutions that will be subject to economic sanctions as part of an effort to maintain pressure on the Russian government over its support of insurgents fighting in Ukraine.

The new actions are aimed at individuals or entities that American officials said had been helping previously identified targets to evade sanctions. Eight of the new targets are linked to Gennady Timchenko, a billionaire Russian businessman who is known to have ties to President Vladimir V. Putin.

Also identified as subject to sanctions are four officials who served in the government of former President Viktor F. Yanukovych of Ukraine. Five operators of Crimean ports and one sea ferry operator are also identified. Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula last year after Mr. Yanukovych was deposed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does the NYT never tire of invoking "the big lie"?!?

Crimea, originally annexed from Russia by Kruschiev, realized that with the putsch against Yanukovych, there was no legitimate government in Kiev.

At that point, in a free and fair election, with international observers, Crimea held a referendum to return to the Russian Federation, which was voted into effect, and accepted by the Russian Federation.

Russia has done nothing wrong here.

With Europe suffering under the weigh of anti-Russian sanctions, Europe may decide to end those sanctions unilaterally, no matter what the US government does; the cracks are already starting to show.

And neither DC nor Kiev have been able to prove incontrovertibly, that Russians are supporting the separatists in Eastern Ukraine.

This is window dressing, pure and simple, for a pig-headedly, ham-fistedly vile attempt to goad Putin into doing something stupid. The gentleman may be many things, but stupid is absolutely not one of them.

Failing this, we may well see a US-orchestrated false flag to be blamed on Russia, as the reason for military conflict against it. However, I would strongly caution the few adults in the bowels of power to consider this very carefully.

At this point, the US military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or troop strength to insure a successful outcome in a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

CISA: The Dirty Deal Between Google and the NSA That No One Is Talking About

One of the things that civil liberties activists like to lament about is that the general public seems to care more about Google and Facebook using their personal data to target advertising than the government using it to target drone strikes.

The reality is that both types of abuse are dangerous, and they work hand in hand.

It's hard to find a more perfect example of this collusion than in a bill that's headed for a vote soon in the U.S. Senate: the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, or CISA.

CISA is an out and out surveillance bill masquerading as a cybersecurity bill. It won't stop hackers. Instead, it essentially legalizes all forms of government and corporate spying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Upon taking office, President Obama originally promised the American people "...the most transparent Administration in history."

With legislation like this getting passed, can someone please tell me: where the HELL did that administration go?!?

And please don't tell me Obama will veto this, because he won't.

The Look of Silence: Finding our Humanity in the Face of Genocide

Our challenge today is to harness the good in ourselves, to be more humane, more gentle, more caring, to treat each being in our world as someone of infinite worth. As technology gives us access to the far reaches of the globe, we must see that infinite worth in a man or woman in Sumatra who now has to live next to the man who tortured and killed their loved one, as we also strive to see it in our neighbor at home.

When we use atrocity to inspire us to act, to ask the right questions, to reach across the globe and try to stop someone from being killed or suffering, our world will become a more livable one. Only then will we be able to hope to turn back the tide on genocide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had the opportunity to hear Bishop Tutu speak at St. John's Episcopal Church many, many years ago, about peace and human justice; and still today, he is an indefatigable campaigner for those values.

Let us all take a moment to embrace the values expressed in the first paragraph I copied from this article; I can promise you that the world, both immediate, and universal, CAN be a better place for that action.

I am no Pollyanna; however, I do know that kindness and compassion can be contagious!! :-)

What has been going on in occupied Palestine in many ways is crime against humanity

Israeli soldiers have killed a 17-year-old Palestinian boy on the Gaza border. The incident happened when a group of youngsters approached the border fence and started throwing stones at soldiers who responded with live fire. The teenager’s death follows an arson attack in the West Bank in which a Palestinian toddler was burned alive. A huge crowd gathered on Friday night to mourn the boy’s death.

Puerto Rico To Default After Missing Payment

Puerto Rico will miss a payment on debt due Aug. 1, the governor's chief of staff said on Friday, an event that will be considered a default by investors as the commonwealth lurches towards what could be one of the largest U.S. municipal debt restructurings in history.

The island faces a number of debt payments that day but had signaled in recent weeks that it may miss the $58 million payment on Public Finance Corporation (PFC) bonds.

"Tomorrow is Aug. 1 and we don't have the money," Puerto Rico's governor's chief of staff Victor Suarez told journalists in San Juan. "The PFC payment will not be made this weekend. It was not consigned."

Suarez also said the government only had enough cash to operate until November if no additional measures are taken to increase cashflow.

The PFC missed payment will mark the first by the commonwealth. According to a 2014 bond offering statement, Puerto Rico has never defaulted on the payment of principal or interest of debt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how American financial markets respond to this on Monday.

NYC landlord tries to reduce damages payment by saying Latino toddler wouldn’t go to college anyway

A Federal judge rejected a Brooklyn landlord’s attempt to use a Latino child’s ethnicity to justify reducing his liability in a lead poisoning case, the New York Times reported.

Mark Kimpson’s attorney sought to reduce the $2 million awarded to the boy and his mother by a jury earlier this month, saying the child was less likely to attend college and earn a degree even if he had not been stricken by lead poisoning while living in the family’s Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment. Elevated levels of lead were found in his blood just after his first birthday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this attorney thought for one moment that this argument would be accepted by the judge reminds me of one of comedian Ron White's classic stand-up routine lines: "You can't fix stupid!"

“We all know people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs. These people are addicted to money,” Sanders said earlier this year, according to MSNBC. The result? A “philosophical war being waged against the middle-class and working families.”

HISTORY IS REPEATING – GERMAN GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION OF JOURNALISTS FOR TREASON

If it were up to the Federal Attorney General and the President of the German Domestic Security Agency, two of our reporters would soon be in prison for at least two years. Today, we were officially informed about investigations against our Markus Beckedahl, Andre Meister and an unknown“ party. The accusation: Treason.

Germany has opened a treason investigation into a news website a broadcaster said had reported on plans to increase state surveillance of online communications.

The public broadcaster ARD reported Netzpolitik.org had published an article on how the BfV was seeking extra funding to increase its online surveillance, and another about plans to set up a special unit to monitor social media, both based on leaked confidential documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When telling the truth becomes a crime against the state which makes it illegal, that society is in DEEP trouble.

The US government has already gone way down this dark path; Snowden can NEVER return home without being flung into a prison cell for the rest of his life, and he knows it.

RUSSIA SHOOTS DOWN US STEALTH COUP

That is because the United States can no longer hide the fact that it is behind these protests and often, even hide their role in the armed elements that are brought in covertly to give targeted governments their final push out the door. Nations have learned to identify, expose, and resist this tactic, and like Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime’s tactic of Blitzkrieg or “lighting war,” once appropriate countermeasures are found, the effectiveness of lighting fast, overwhelming force be it military or political, is rendered impotent.

This was most recently observed in Armenia during the so-called “Electric Yerevan” protests – Yerevan being the capital of Armenia, and “electric” in reference to the alleged motivation of protesters – rising electric prices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These alleged "color revolutions" (read; an attempt to destablilise yet another country to put into the US/private central bank orbit) are absolutely laughable, if it were not for the significant numbers of lives lost in them.

Right now, I am looking at Russia and China making deals to achieve their objectives, while the US way is either waging outright or proxy war, or creating destabilisation, to achieve what its policy makers want.

What's wrong with this picture?!?

Bloody everything!!

Lawsuit accuses 22 banks of manipulating US Treasury auctions

Twenty-two financial companies that have served as primary dealers of U.S. Treasury securities were sued in federal court on Thursday, in what was described as the first nationwide class action alleging a conspiracy to manipulate Treasury auctions that harmed both investors and borrowers.

The State-Boston Retirement System, the pension fund for Boston public employees, accused Bank of America's Merrill Lynch unit, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, UBS, and 14 other defendants of illegally trying to profit on the sale of Treasury bills, notes and bonds at investors' expense.

Newest Remote Car Hacking Raises More Questions About Reporter’s Death

As readers of WhoWhatWhy know, our site has been one of the very few continuing to explore the fiery death two years ago of investigative journalist Michael Hastings, whose car left a straight segment of a Los Angeles street at a high speed, jumped the median, hit a tree, and blew up.

Our original report described anomalies of the crash and surrounding events that suggest cutting-edge foul play—that an external hacker could have taken control of Hastings’s car in order to kill him. If this sounds too futuristic, a series of recent technical revelations has proven that “car hacking” is entirely possible. The latest just appeared this week.

Donald Trump Reveals His Plan for Gun-Free Zones

In a recent interview, Trump said if he were to become president, he would abolish gun-free zones on military bases, a policy enacted under Bill Clinton. Instead, Trump would require “that soldiers remain armed and on alert at our military bases.”

“President Clinton never should have passed a ban on soldiers being able to protect themselves on bases. America’s Armed Forces will be armed,” Trump said in an interview with gun blog Ammoland.

Trump said he does “not support expanding background checks,” claiming they simply don’t work.

“They make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to acquire firearms while consistently failing to stop criminals from getting guns,” Trump said. “We should re-examine our policy to make sure that these prohibitions do not impede law abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.”

US ARMS SALES TO SAUDI ARABIA CONTRIBUTING TO CONFLICT IN YEMEN

The United States’ weapons and logistical support for Saudi Arabia’s military campaign in Yemen signals that Washington is backing Riyadh’s goal to crush Houthi rebels despite UN calls for a political solution, experts told Sputnik on Friday.

The United States is providing intelligence and refueling support to enable a four-month-old Saudi-led air campaign against Houthi rebels and allied forces.

On Thursday, Washington decided to provide Riyadh with $500 million in ammunition to replenish stocks used up in the campaign.

“The Saudis want an extended war that leads to a Houthi defeat, and the United States is effectively backing that strategy with the arms deal,” Charles Schmitz, a specialist on Yemen at the Middle East Institute told Sputnik.

“The Saudis don’t want a political settlement; they want a Houthi surrender,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With its oil revenues decreasing substantially, and its own economy in decline, sparking some demonstrations, even to the point of riots (previously unheard of in this country), Saudi Arabia may do well to re-think this entire military misadventure.

With the weaponry purchased from the US, the Saudi military has been hitting schools, hospitals, and housing; all illegal under international law.

This is going to be a long, bitter, and protracted military campaign, about which we in the West hear virtually nothing about, and well may last for years, as there is no real hope of a Houthi surrender.

Ultimately, my sympathies here lie with the Yemenite people, who want some degree of control of, and representation by, their government, however that is going to shake out in the future.

Total Poll Fail Ukraine: Putin Leading By 84%

A new information tragedy in Ukraine. It started so innocently: the nationally conscious patriotic website Nedelya.ua organized a survey. The question was: which politician would you entrust with governing your country?
41664 votes were cast. The results were a knock-out blow for the organizers--a full and crushing victory for Vladimir Putin. Treason!

J.Hawk's Comment: I'd add that even it was "bots and trolls" voting for Putin, where is the pro-Poroshenko/Yatsenyuk/Lyashko/Timoshenko enthusiasm? Right? That, in my view, is what speaks in favor of its authenticity, the fact that none (NONE, KARL!) of Ukraine's leaders elicit respect, admiration, emulation, gratitude, love, or even mere tolerance. No, they are all hated or, worse, despised. Putin, on the other hand, commands respect, grudging or otherwise, even in the US.

Mandated Vaccines: Finding Our Path to Freedom

By Rosanne Lindsay ND

In June, California became the first state to mandate vaccination for all children attending public and private schools. Similar mandates will apply to all adults working in daycare settings. There are currently 58 bills in 24 different states that would limit your rights when it comes to vaccines, or lose your job. A proposed Federal law will attempt to jab the entire nation.

While we were sleeping, presidential candidates began practicing medicine without a license, declaring no one has a right to refuse vaccination, meanwhile openly accepting bribes from the pharmaceutical industry. In Australia, “‘conscientious objectors’ to childhood vaccination will have their childcare and family tax payments stopped.”

New study shows Spain’s “Google tax” has been a disaster for publishers

A study commissioned by Spanish publishers has found that a new intellectual property law passed in Spain last year, which charges news aggregators like Google for showing snippets and linking to news stories, has done substantial damage to the Spanish news industry.

In the short-term, the study found, the law will cost publishers €10 million, or about $10.9 million, which would fall disproportionately on smaller publishers. Consumers would experience a smaller variety of content, and the law "impedes the ability of innovation to enter the market."

The study concludes that there's no "theoretical or empirical justification" for the fee

'We have to stop having a soft heart'

People coming to live in New Zealand would need to take out personal medical insurance for at least 10 years, under a policy being considered by NZ First.

The party's leader Winston Peters has expressed his support for the idea, saying "we have to stop having a soft heart and a head to match".

"You can climb off a plane in New Zealand and be in hospital the next day," Mr Peters said. "We have long waiting lists...it seems to me to be only reasonable and fair."

NZ First is holding its annual convention in Rotorua, with delegates considering a number of remits. If accepted, they will be examined by caucus.

The Rodney delegation has put forward policy that, "all new settlers in New Zealand must take out personal medical insurance cover for a period of 10 years minimum".

Mr Peters said that if reciprocal arrangements existed that allowed Kiwis to get medical cover in a new arrival's country-of-origin, they would not need insurance.

Community leaders condemn 'bogus' witch doctors, call for investigation

Auckland's Indian community leaders have called for an investigation into how so-called Hindu witch doctors have been able to work in New Zealand, while condemning local Indian media for allowing such practices to be advertised in their products.

Around 20 people gathered for a community meeting in Mt Roskill, Auckland, this afternoon to tackle the issue of witch doctors targeting the vulnerable in their community.

It comes after fears were raised of so-called 'witch doctors' and 'healers' in south Auckland who have charged thousands of dollars in return for promised financial fortunes and love-life successes that don't eventuate.

Speakers at today's meeting condemned the practice, saying many of the 'astrologers' were targeting vulnerable people.

They called on those in the Hindu community to avoid using the services of so-called priests, witch doctors and astrologers.

Disappointment as TPPA talks break down

Trade Minister Tim Groser says he is disappointed a landmark free-trade pact stumbled after talks broke down in Hawaii.

Negotiations among 12 Pacific nations failed to reach a conclusion.

"Good progress was made this week, but a number of challenging issues remain, including intellectual property and market access for dairy products", Mr Groser said.

"We will continue to work toward a successful conclusion. This is about getting the best possible deal for New Zealand, not a deal at any cost."

Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations are aimed at erasing most tariffs and other barriers to trade and investment among participants.

It would also clarify and standardize trade rules, making it easier for companies to sell goods and services in the Pacific Rim.

The wide-ranging discussions have addressed tariffs on autos, rice and dairy products, as well as intellectual property protections for pharmaceuticals.

Legal challenge to be lodged surrounding TPP

A legal challenge will be lodged in the High Court next week over the secrecy around the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations.

Outspoken TPPA critic Professor Jane Kelsey was met with a blanket refusal when she made an Official Information Act request to Trade Minister Tim Groser back in January.

She made the request on the back of a decision from the EU Ombudsman that the consequences of a deal being discussed between the EU and the US, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), were so great that the people of Europe needed to see much more detail, and produced a long list of what needed to be produced.

When her OIA request was denied, the Minister's refusal had to be reviewed by the Ombudsman before any court action could be lodged. Professor Kelsey only received that Ombudsman's report on Wednesday - four and a half months later.

NSA pledges to eventually delete old bulk surveillance records. Oh sure, we can trust them, right?

The National Security Agency will eventually delete the trove of millions of telephone records it controversially amassed under the Patriot Act, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced Monday.

Destruction of the bulk surveillance records, which the NSA retained for a five-year period, won’t be immediate, but the ODNI said it has determined that the NSA will not be allowed to maintain access to them. Their deletion would mark a victory for privacy advocates, though it’s unclear exactly when that will begin.

Courtney Love fights release of Kurt Cobain death-scene photos that lawsuit claims prove rock star was murdered

Kurt Cobain’s widow and daughter are urging a Seattle judge not to release death-scene photos and records that a lawsuit claims will prove the Nirvana frontman was murdered more than 20 years ago.

Superior Court Judge Theresa Doyle is set to hear arguments Friday over whether to proceed with a trial after Richard Lee, who runs a Seattle public access TV show, sued the city and the Seattle Police Department for the material he says will show Cobain didn’t die of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1994, The Seattle Times reported.

The city is arguing that the material should stay sealed for the sake of the family’s privacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, we let a murderer go free so that the family keeps their privacy? Funny how when it's the NSA involved, NOBODY has any privacy, but a celebrity can keep evidence of a murder hidden by claiming a threat to her privacy?

Not without precedent; The US Supreme Court allowed crime scene photos of Vincent Foster that reportedly showed a second gunshot wound (which would have proven the suicide claim was nonsense) to remain hidden because of the family's "privacy concerns."

Erodogan and Netanyahu Declare War

The rulers of the two most powerful authoritarian regimes in the Middle East are launching major wars to reconfigure the Middle East.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has declared war by proxy on Iran, announcing full-scale military mobilization within Israel (July 27 -29) and organizing the biggest political campaign of ultra Zionist Jews in Washington. The purpose of this two-pronged propaganda blitz is to defeat the recently signed US-Iranian agreement and start another major Middle East war.

At the same time, Turkish Prime Minister Erodogan has launched a major war against the Kurdish people and their aspirations for a Kurdish state. T

9/11 Shock Opera… Act 4 – Building 7 and Flight 93: The Grand Finale that Wasn’t

The inescapable conclusion drawn from this is that a lot of very odd things had to happen to put Flight 93 on a direct collision course with Building 7 at just the right time after the two towers were cleared out of the way. Odd that is, if one believes they all happened by chance.

But, if you take a look at these events in the context of a deliberate schedule then you see that these “odd occurrences” took place in exactly the right sequence to put that plane in the north face of Building 7 at just the precise moment to not only justify the complete collapse of the building (and destruction of volumes of evidence) but also to serve as the final terrifying act of the “New Pearl Harbor” event the neocon Vulcans sitting in the command bunker had written about just 1 year earlier.

FLASHBACK - Mass Layoff Stats not reported due to budget cuts

Important Notice
On March 1, 2013, President Obama ordered into effect the across-the-board spending cuts (commonly referred to as sequestration) required by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act, as amended. Under the order, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) must cut its current budget by more than $30 million, 5 percent of the current 2013 appropriation, by September 30, 2013. In order to help achieve these savings and protect core programs, the BLS will eliminate two programs, including Mass Layoff Statistics, and all "measuring green jobs" products. The final release of Mass Layoffs Statistics data will be the publication of the May 2013 data.

Obamacare’s Government-Backed Nonprofit Health Plans Are a Disaster—and Could Cost Taxpayers Billions

The federal government shelled out $2.4 billion in loans to a series of non-profit health plans under Obamacare, but now they’re struggling to stay alive.

The plans, dubbed CO-OPs (Consumer Operated and Oriented Plans) were intended to increase competition in the insurance market and serve as a check on private insurers by providing an alternative that wasn’t focused on profit. They were a compromise measure intended to satisfy liberals who wanted the law to set up a fully government-run health insurance option.

As it turns out, Obamacare’s CO-OPs weren’t focused on profit—or, it seems, financial viability of any kind.

The CO-OPs have struggled to meet enrollment targets, with 13 of the 23 non-profit plans showing “considerably lower” enrollment than projected, according to a report by the Health and Human Services Inspector General. Finances were shaky all around with 21 of 23 plans incurring losses through the end of 2014, the report says.

Chicago mulls borrowing that Puerto Rico rejected as too risky

Chicago is considering selling a type of debt that's fallen out of favor in other municipalities because it saddles taxpayers with higher costs by delaying payments.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel proposed issuing $500 million of bonds this week in an ordinance that would permit the use of capital appreciation bonds, where borrowers postpone interest and principal payments into one big sum at the end of the term. Emanuel's pitch also allows for the more common current interest bonds, which the city said it expects to use.

Chicago is struggling to plug its deficit and $20 billion of unfunded pension liabilities. Emanuel's move would give the third-most-populous city a means of borrowing without having to face the costs right away.

Accidents and incidents involving the Boeing 777

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There have been four crashes involving the Boeing 777.

Maylasian Airlines Flight 370, most likely shot down in a military accident over the Indian Ocean.

Maylasian Airlines Flight 17, crashed in Ukraine, again possibly a military accident.

Asiana Airlines Flight 214, which crashed on landing in San Francisco, possibly due to faulty computer code.

British Airways Flight 38, crashed short of the runway at London Heathrow, blamed in icing in the fuel lines.

Since only one 777 was lost over the Indian Ocean, we can conclude from process of elimination that the flaperon found on Reunion Island is part of the missing Maylasian Airlines Flight 370.

Is Planned Parenthood Selling “Fully Intact” Babies Born Alive and Left to Die?

“In a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it,” Daleiden said.

What does that mean?

If true, that means Planned Parenthood could be breaking the federal law known as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and other places that do abortions to provide appropriate medical care for a baby born alive after a failed abortion or purposefully birthed to “let die.” That would be one of the potential ways Planned Parenthood could produce a “fully intact” baby to sell to StemExpress for research. Most “crunchy” abortion methods would do damage to the baby’s body.

Composition of the Committee may be slightly different (as announced and surprise).

On the same day from the same place, the Committee will Appeal to the people of Ukraine and expose his plan "further actions" and announce that he is ready to assume "responsibility for the fate of Ukraine".

Hillary Clinton shuts down department store to get $820 haircut

HILLARY Clinton put part of up-market NYC department store Bergdorf Goodman on lockdown on Friday to get an $A820 haircut at the swanky John Barrett Salon.

Clinton, with a huge entourage in tow, was spotted being ushered through a side entrance of the Fifth Avenue store on Friday.

A source said, “Staff closed off one side of Bergdorf’s so Hillary could come in privately to get her hair done. An elevator bank was shut down so she could ride up alone, and then she was styled in a private area of the salon. Other customers didn’t get a glimpse. Hillary was later seen with a new feathered hairdo.”

FLASHBACK - U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium

Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

The documents, obtained earlier this year through public-records requests by a Washington-based nonprofit group, also indicate that senior officials wanted to keep the matter under wraps for fear it could undermine U.S. Middle East peace efforts.

Candidate for U.S. House Advocates Peoples Takoever

Because I love America enough to stand up and speak the hard truths I had no choice but to persist to report what Vanunu told me in June 2005:

Did you know that President Kennedy tried to stop Israel from building atomic weapons? In 1963, he forced Prime Minister Ben Guirion to admit the Dimona was not a textile plant, as the sign outside proclaimed, but a nuclear plant. The Prime Minister said, ‘The nuclear reactor is only for peace.’

Kennedy insisted on an open internal inspection. He wrote letters demanding that Ben Guirion open up the Dimona for inspection.

The French were responsible for the actual building of the Dimona. The Germans gave the money; they were feeling guilty for the Holocaust, and tried to pay their way out. Everything inside was written in French, when I was there, almost twenty years ago. Back then, the Dimona descended seven floors underground.

VANUNU'S PHOTOS OF DIMONA - 1985

Mordechai Vanunu brought his camera to work in late 1985, shortly before leaving his eight-year stint as a technician at Israel's nuclear weapons factory at Dimona.

Acting on his conscience, he carefully took about 60 photos of the top-secret labs and unique production processes involved. When some of these photos were originally published in the London Sunday Times' exposé, they confirmed his eyewitness testimony about the extent of Israel's nuclear weapons program and revealed Israel to be one of the world's top nuclear powers. To this day, the Israeli government refuses international inspection of Dimona and continues to deny the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

Israel, not Iran, started Middle East nuclear arms race

The debate about the P5+1 agreement with Iran on its nuclear program has already produced a storm of angry rhetoric and a tsunami of opinion pieces. But one issue is notably absent from the debate: the fact that Israel has a nuclear weapons arsenal and sophisticated delivery systems that are decades ahead of anything Iran could develop in the foreseeable future. Iran should be constrained by a global regime from getting the bomb, but the notion that Israel is a weak powerless state like Czechoslovakia in 1938 is ludicrous.

This happened despite the SNB having invested 17%, or $94 billion, in foreign - mostly US -stocks.

Here’s how history might one day look back on the west’s democracy rackets of the last 15 years:

“In the early part of the 21st century, The Revolution Business really took off, as US-funded NGOs around the globe began to nibble away at the social and political foundations of countries all over the planet.

Consultants and ‘agents of change’ were dispatched to places like Georgia, the Ukraine, Tunisia and Egypt. Their task was to help build two kinds of mobs – virtual mobs on Twitter, as well as street mobs. The best part about it was that you can actually make money off of other nation’s misery and social strife. For ambitious young social entrepreneurs, if you could “get in there” with USAID, then you’d be in the chips, as it were.

For hapless activists and their shrewd nation-wrecking bosses in Washington, it was a charmed life of endless globe-trotting, transatlantic social justice junkets and promoting democracy worldwide. Life couldn’t be better.
