ASSEMBLING THE EVIDENCE FOR HIGH LIKELIHOOD OF COMING THIRD WORLD WAR

In no particular order, these are the salient points that are converging, rapidly, screaming out our inexorable collision with National disaster:

–Very high levels of saber-rattling by lots of influential people, both in the US and abroad, both “allies” and “enemies” in recent weeks, more so than usual.

–Huge build-up of Naval forces, US and Israeli, munitions, in Gulf AO.

–Key positions in US military, all branches, held by Israeli dual citizens

Chelsea's Wedding: Let Let Them Eat Cake

Before we attend to the poor political judgment of such an extravagant affair during times of economic distress, let us wonder aloud where a poor boy who became governor of Arkansas and president of the United States got such a fortune that he can blow $3,000,000 on a wedding.

The American people did not take up a collection to reward him for his service to them.

Where did the money come from? Who was he really serving during his eight years in office?

How did Tony Blair and his wife, Cherrie, end up with an annual income of ten million pounds (approximately $15 million dollars) as soon as he left office? Who was Blair really serving?

These are not polite questions, and they are infrequently asked.

US website Salem-News.com deserves your support

Salem-News.com exists after six years because it has a good mission, and a lot of drive. The site's founders left established mainstream media careers to start the nation's first independent internet news group in 2004.

They have given everything possible to meet the demands of daily news for over half a decade and they need your help to continue. Appreciate that this site exists because of sheer devotion to the truth, which does not make a news group popular with those who control the purse strings of society.

Please take four minutes of your time and watch the video produced by Salem-News.com to explain our urgent need for funding. Please add Salem-News.com to the list of agencies that you support and do what you can, if you can.

Israel Classifies its Past as Top Secret

In the interim things have only gotten worse for the Zionist defenders of the idealized Israel. Multiple invasions of Lebanon and the essentially defenseless Palestinian cities and towns, the slaughter of the innocent, the reduction of Gaza to an open air prison, the on-going confiscation of land and property in the Occupied Territories, rampant settler violence, and the repeated election of racist governments have resulted in a worldwide civil society effort to isolate Israel and induce it to reform itself in the same manner as South Africa.

Activists Work to Stop Tax-Exempt Donations to Israeli Settlements

An unflattering light is being shone on US private donations towards the development of the settlements that are increasingly encroaching on Palestinian land.Much of the money needed for settlement development comes from private American donations. It is estimated that tens of millions of dollars reach the settlements in the form of charity, contributions that by virtue of their philanthropic nature enjoy tax-exempt status under the US’ Internal Revenue Code.

THE HIDDEN FACE OF SANCTIONS By DR. ALAN SABROSKY

The sanctions imposed recently against Iran by the United Nations, and later separately by the US Congress, have one thing in common. Both were driven by the US at the instigation of Israel.

But they are also, I believe, generally misunderstood. Sanctions are normally intended to alter the behavior of the country being sanctioned — to punish it for what it is doing, to keep it from continuing practices or policies others find objectionable, or both.

And overtly, that is the function of these sanctions. But that is not their actual purpose.

The Hariri Tribunal Conspiracy

By Sami Moubayed

Saudi King Abdullah’s landmark visit to Syria on Thursday, his second since assuming the throne in 2005, mirrors Arab diplomacy at its finest hour.

The king is worried – just like his Syrian host President Bashar al-Assad – about two critical files in the Arab world: Iraq and Lebanon.

In Iraq, political rivalries have prevented creation of a cabinet for five months, signaling a political vacuum and security disaster in the weeks to come that would be very troubling for Syria and Saudi Arabia, two of Iraq’s main neighbors.

JAMES PETRAS: Trends to Barbarism and Prospects for Socialism

The Rising Tide of Barbarism

Introduction

Western societies and states are moving inexorably toward conditions resembling barbarism; structural changes are reversing decades of social welfare and subjecting labor, natural resources and the wealth of nations to raw exploitation, pillage and plunder, driving living standards downward and provoking unprecedented levels of discontent.

We will proceed by outlining the economic political and military processes driving this process of decay and decomposition and follow with an account of the mass popular responses to their own deteriorating conditions. The deep structural changes accompanying the rise of barbarism become the basis for considering the prospects for socialism in the 21st century.

Wiki-Leaks is Israel

Now “Wiki-Leaks” is busy selling phony bin Laden stories, having the long dead Osama humiliating the CIA by running around villages in Afghanistan selling vacuum cleaners. What is our “leak” site really about? This is a dead news cycle. The World Cup is over, lots of people on holiday and no major stories. Only in a dead news period like this, as Oliver Stone pointed out, could the Israeli controlled media dump a pile of lame rumors mixed in with box loads of chickenfeed, passing it off as the story of the century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The internet is an intellectual jungle, where lies and liars are quickly exposed and savaged. That is the new reality. This is survival of the fittest, which means survival of the most accurate, where winning by spending enough money to force people to believe as they are told to believe is an obsolete relic of a bygone age.

The downfall of WikiLeaks illustrates that principle.

A large amount of expense and effort was spent to build up WikiLeaks' reputation as a whistle blower site, even though there were older and more established whistle blower websites in operation. The first inkling that there might be a problem was that ABCNNBBCBS was pumping what a "dangerous" website WikiLeaks was, by way of attracting attention to the place.

And, as it the classic case of a bait-and-switch propaganda campaign, WikiLeaks did leak out some damaging info early on to build credibility. But whereas a TV newsreader can build an audience by being truthful, then start to lie to them with impunity, any blog news source is only as credible as their last release, because of the interactivity of the medium. Trust in WikiLeaks, years in the building, appears to have vanished almost overnight, both with the inclusion of the long dead Osama Bin Laden in the leaked Afghan logs, and Julian Assange's open disdain for the 9-11 truth movement.

The environment has changed. The old methods no longer work. Those entities that cannot evolve and adapt to the new reality must go extinct. WikiLeaks just demonstrated that hard fact.

Fox News are liars, thieves and BP shills

A young man contacted me about using video footage of mine for a music video about the BP Slick. I gave him permission on a limited basis. The video was completed and posted to You Tube and Fox filed a copyright claim that the video (mine) was fox licensed and therefore not acceptable content. All aerial footage is mine and I can back it up with metadata, flight logs, personal accounts from pilot, coordinator, and the 3 of us in the plane.

Robert has done nothing wrong in using MY video clips and I will back him up in any legal claim he might want to take against Fox, the news shills for BP Slick!

I just got off the horn with the Ruling Elite. We had an emergency conference call and to tell you the truth, they ain’t happy. You little people are not responding the way you are supposed to. A significant portion of you are not getting more optimistic because they tell you to. Instead of just reading the headline on Bloomberg that durable goods orders skyrocketed in June, you actually read the details that said durable goods orders plunged. It is getting difficult for the ruling elite to keep the masses sedated and dumbed down. These damn bloggers, with their facts and critical thinking, are throwing a wrench into the gears.

Those who are new to the alternative media will soon understand that the critical decisions made by our political leaders are not simply the result of left or right wing points of view. This left/right idea is a false paradigm in many instances. What we are dealing with are often examples of outright corruption- violations of Law, not ideological leanings (ie. the invasion of Iraq).

JEFF GATES: John McCain; A Closer Look at Evil (Part 4)

The career of John McCain offers a textbook case confirming how war is waged on the U.S. by way of deception—with the help of senior lawmakers.

Despite the constancy of his treasonous conduct, McCain seeks a fifth term in the U.S. Senate.

Reflect for a moment on our national experience since he was profiled, politically packaged and placed in the House in 1982. The “package” was then relocated to the Senate in 1986 on the retirement of Arizonan Barry Goldwater.

With McCain’s enthusiastic backing, our military was deployed to wage war abroad based on assurances from political leaders who were deceived to lead us to war. If not treason, what dare we call the conduct of those who enabled that fraud?

IMRAN KHAN: DON’T BLAME PAKISTAN FOR THE FAILURE OF THE WAR

Veterans Today

It is unfortunate that the US was unable to use the window of opportunity that it had in the immediate aftermath of the removal of the Taleban Government in late 2001. It could have brought in a truly broad-based Afghan government and invested in the development of the country. Instead, it continued its military actions and brought corrupt and criminal elements into power in Kabul.
Before the West invaded Afghanistan my country had no suicide bombers, no jihad and no Talebanisation

There is now a general recognition that the war in Afghanistan cannot be won militarily. All the Taleban have to do to win is not to lose. The Americans won’t stay and everybody knows that.

An accelerating systemic collapse

Let's call this whatever-you-want-to-call-it a compressive deflationary contraction, because that's exactly what it is, an accelerating systemic collapse of activity due to over-investments in hyper-complexity (thank you Joseph Tainter). A number of things are going on in our society that can be described with precision. We've generated too many future claims on wealth that does not exist and has poor prospects of ever being generated. That's what unpayable debt is. We have such a mighty mountain of it that the Federal Reserve can "create" new digital dollars until the cows come home (and learn how to play chamber music), but they will never create enough new money to outpace the disappearance of existing notional money in the form of welshed-on loans.

Assange's MSM pals: How the papers got the leaks

How the papers got the leaks
July 28, 2010
Davies contacted people close to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and found out he was scheduled to speak before European parliament on June 21. Davies met with Assange and said he would offer a team of researchers to identify stories in the documents.
On June 22, during a six-hour coffee-soaked meeting in a Brussels café, Davies says Assange suggested another idea — that The Guardian and The New York Times be given an advance look at some information the site had on the Afghanistan war, with each paper publishing its own take on the documents. Within the next 24 rs, Davies says Assange told him Der Spiegel should be included as well.

FLASHBACK - How Jewish is Hollywood?

I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50% in 1964.

Jews totally run Hollywood.

Who's Paranoid Now? US Military & Blogs (Official Docs)

...At that point the enemy blog might be used covertly as a vehicle for friendly information operations. Hacking the site and subtly changing the messages and data—merely a few words or phrases—may be sufficient to begin destroying the blogger’s credibility with the audience. Better yet, if the blogger happens to be passing enemy communications and logistics data, the information content could be corrupted. If the messages are subtly tweaked and the data corrupted in the right way, the enemy may reason that the blogger in question has betrayed them and either take down the site (and the blogger) themselves, or by threatening such action, give the U.S. an opportunity to offer the individual amnesty in exchange for information.

Interesting question. We must thank the Nixon Center for asking it. In my view, there are many reasons for Americans to wish the Jewish state well. Under current circumstances, strategic advantage for the United States is not one of them. If we were to reverse the question, however, and to ask whether the United States is a strategic asset or liability for Israel, there would be no doubt about the answer.

As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations, and opinion leaders stretching from the National Review magazine (and the Wall Street Journal) on the right to the Nation magazine on the left, agreed that spending some $700 billion to buy the investors' "toxic assets" was the only alternative to the U.S. economy's "systemic collapse." In this, President George W. Bush and his would-be Republican successor John McCain agreed with the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama.

Study: Journalists Starting To Accept The Fact That Their Print Publications Will Eventually Fold

Half of journalists think the print publications (or TV/radio stations) they work for will eventually fold.

That’s according to a new report by the Oriella PR Network.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media would still be in business, and the blog-o-sphere not even exist, if the media had remembered that their self-appointed task was to be a watchdog on the abuses of government.

Nobody likes a liar.

The corporate media wants to blame the blogs, but in truth the reason thy have lost their audience is that the corporate media lied to the world about Saddam's nukes.

The corporate media lied to the world about TWA 800.

The corporate media lied to the world about John F. Kennedy

The corporate media lied to the world about global warming

The corporate media lied to the world about 9-11

The corporate media lied to the world about the Oklahoma City Bombing

The corporate media lied to the world about Waco

The corporate media lied to the world about Robert Kennedy

The corporate media lied to the world about Vincent Foster

The corporate media lied to the world about Pearl Harbor

The corporate media lied to the world about Martin Luther King

The corporate media lied to the world about John F. Kennedy Jr.

As I said above, nobody likes a liar, and if the purveyors of propaganda truly wish to know the authors of their downfall they need only look in a mirror. The transition from mono-broadcast media to interactive media was sparked the moment the commercial media decided that their job was not to inform the public, but to herd them along in the desired direction.

The blogs would not be here were it not for the corporate media's untrustworthiness. I have no sympathy for them.

Let the sense of this article be fully understood: it is not to reproach Mr Sarkozy with his links of family, friends and professional contacts, but to reproach him with having hidden his links from the French people who believed that they were electing a free man.

To understand how a man in whom all agree they see an agent of the United States and Israel has been able to become the head of the Gaullist party, then the President of the French Republic, one must go back in time. Far back. We must follow a long digression during which we shall introduce the protagonists who are today taking their revenge.

Israel Hiding Behind The “Iranian Threat”

By Steven Zhou — “The Canadian Charger“

With the recent formation of The Emergency Committee for Israel, the neoconservative and Likudnik characters on the American right have stepped up their anti-Iranian lobbying efforts. Among other things, they have again brought up how a nuclear Iran would pose an “imminent threat” that would tear the region apart.

This renewed exaggeration of an Iranian threat to Israel comes at a time when Israel is clearly being shown to be a strategic liability to the U.S., a fact the Israel Lobby has so far concealed with great success.

How to create your very own terrorist state

Bill Kristol’s ‘Emergency Committee?’ Give me a break

By Stephen M. Walt – Foreign Policy

Via Ben Smith at Politico, we learn that the usual suspects have started yet another organization whose objective is to promote a hard-right, Likudnik agenda in the Middle East. The new group apparently intends to go after anyone who thinks U.S. Middle East policy has been less than totally successful in recent years, and who is willing to think for themselves (and U.S. interests), instead of reflexively echoing the positions favored by AIPAC and other groups in the “status quo” lobby.

Handcuffed to history in South Asia

by Aijaz Zaka Syed

I sometimes wonder if Shakespeare had India and Pakistan’s leaders in mind when he wrote those immortal lines in As You Like It: “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts.”

No matter who is in power in Delhi or Islamabad, the script of the carefully choreographed diplomatic spectacle never seems to change. From their famous encounter at Tashkent to the tense handshakes at Simla and Agra, and from Vajpayee’s historic bus trip to Lahore to the bitterness of Kargil, the more the narrative changes, the more it remains the same.

CNN ANCHORS CALL FOR CRACKDOWN ON BLOGGERS!

Of course these same talking heads make no mention of Joe the Plumber who reputation was smeared by professional journalists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nor do they mention how the corporate media helped lie us all into war with Iraq. Then there were earlier embarrassments.

# NBC Dateline defames a trucking company in a report which manufactured claims of unsafe driving. NBC had to pay a half million in damages.

# CNN/Time - On June 7th, 1998, CNN reported that a Vietnam veteran had accused the Department of Defense of using nerve gas on it's own troops. While hardly the first time that the US has used chemicals against it's own people, this story proved to be un confirmable, and in the face of pressure from the Department of Defense, CNN retracted on July 2nd, 1998. Several reporters were fired, but CNN's Peter Arnett keeps his job by reminding everyone that he just reads what's given to him and has no way of knowing if it's true or not. At last report, Arnett, CNN and TIME have been sued for 100 million dollars for defaming the officers accused of the Sarin gas attacks.

# Steve Brill - Long time DNC donor Steven Brill created a magazine called "Brill's Content" and then shot his own magazine down with the debut issue, which instead of criticizing media offered up a 22 page attack on Kenneth Starr which was then used by the White House to again try to impede the investigation. No sooner had the Brill article debuted than virtually everyone interviewed for the article came forward to claim they had been misquoted and in one case to deny totally the statements attributed to them. Brill's shrill insistence that his quotes were indeed accurate and checked fell apart when one of the interviewees produced a tape recording of the interview. Brill was then forced to retract and apologize.

# Salon - An online magazine funded by Clinton donors, Salon, like Brill, was created to lend an air of credibility to some pretty silly accusations nobody else in the mainstream media would touch. Typical was the story Salon ran accusing Kenneth Starr of paying off witness David Hale. Upon examination, it turned out that Salon's sole source for the accusation was a woman who was a Clinton delegate, and had once worked for detectives trying to find dirt on Kenneth Starr. A (failed) professional psychic, she claimed she could control the rain with her mind and that it was she, not General Norman Schwartzkoppf, who had guided our troops to victory in Desert Storm. One of the reporters working for Salon is Jonathan Broder, who was fired from the Chicago Tribune for plagiarism.

# Stephen Glass - A reporter at the New Republic, Stephen wrote several award winning articles which reinforced the liberal's preconceived notions about conservatives and the nation at large. One example involved a story of a conservative conference that degenerated into drug use and group sex. The story passed editorial review and ran without basic fact checking. The story turned out to be a fabrication, along with almost 1/3 of the total work product of Glass's career at New Republic.

# Patricia Smith resigns her job at the Boston Globe after having to admit she fabricated characters for one of her stories. Later investigation shows that 52 of her articles for the newspaper cannot be verified as factual. Smith had been a finalist for a Pulitzer prize at the time of her disgrace.

# Mike Barnicle refused to resign his job at the Boston Globe after having been caught plagiarizing, and was fired. It was not the first time he had been investigated for fraud in his articles. Barnicle was suspended without pay for two months, which prompted an accusation of racial bias from the NAACP due to the difference in treatment between the white Barnicle and the black Pat Smith.

# The Weekly Standard settles a big lawsuit with Deepak Chopra.

# Both CNN and Tom Brokaw settle out-of-court with Richard Jewell.

# The Wall Street Journal loses a record libel suit filed by a Texas company, paying $200-million in damages.

‘Governments Are Not Going to Change This. We Have To’: Antony Loewenstein on Israel/Palestine, the Internet and more

By Alex Kane — Desertpeace

With “peace talks” between the Palestinian Authority and Israel seeming more and more like a dead end, many people around the world, including dissident Jewish voices, are turning to grassroots activism to pressure Israel to end the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories.

Recently, Jewish Voice for Peace launched a campaign to pressure TIAA-CREF, one of the largest financial services in the U.S., to divest from companies that profit off of the Israeli occupation. Yesterday, the Olympia Food Co-Op, located in the hometown of Rachel Corrie, the American peace activist killed by an Israeli bulldozer, announced a decision to boycott Israeli goods at their two locations.

Shatila Palestinian Refugee Camp, Beirut

We Are Not Special, and There Is No Happy Ending: The Blood-Drenched Darkness of American Exceptionalism

When we believe that America and Americans are unique and uniquely good in all of history, we will also believe that there is no problem we cannot overcome. Our political leaders tell us this fable time and again; many Americans are eager to believe it, in the manner of a damaged child who appeals to mysterious powers to vanquish the dangers lurking in the shadows of his room. We witness this mechanism in connection with a wide range of problems, even when those problems reach the catastrophic level.

Payment row as ethanol damages car engines

The problems hit many ethanol car owners in the spring. Although car manufacturers have deferred responsibility to fuel companies to foot the bill for the repairs, they in turn have refused, saying the problems are not their responsibility.

In the spring, an increasing number of ethanol cars were taken to garages with driving and starting problems. The problems appeared to be high sulphate concentrations in the ethanol clogging the fuel injector to the engine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, I hate to say I told you so ... no, wait, actually, I rather like it. But I did point out that this whole ethanol concept was a feel-good soundbite promoted by the Global Warming Cult which had not been thought all the way through to see if it would really work or not.

Given that farmlands are not an infinite resource, the mandated diversion of farms from food crops to ethanol production triggered a food shortage and rising food prices, exacerbated when the long-neglected flood control on the Mississippi river failed repeatedly, deluging midwestern farmlands in toxic flood waters.

The so-called carbon neutrality of ethanol is a myth, once the carbon footprint of the processing and the energy creation needed for the processing are added in. In fact atmospheric carbon would have been more effectively reduced keeping those plants alive (and bearing more food crops along the way).

Because ethanol contains far less energy than gasoline, users had to buy and burn more of it to accomplish the same amount of work, driving costs higher.

Finally, as this article underscores, engines are not designed to run on ethanol, and as Germany discovered, the fuel system components are being destroyed by the ethanol molecules they were not designed to deal with.

Yes, Conspiracy Theorists, Mumbai 26/11 Was A False Flag Attack Led By US Spy David Headley

The Mumbai 26/11 Attacks were directed by Pakistan. David Headley planned the Mumbai Terror Attacks for more than two years. Headley worked with agents of Pakistan’s, secret service, the ISI. Headley also joined the ISI sponsored terror group Laskar-e-Taibai , (L-e-T). Headley’s "cover" was an "immigration service business" in Chicago, owned by co-conspirator Tahawwura Hussain Rana. This business provided the means to forge travel documents and smuggle other terrorists from country to country. Headley frequently traveled to Mumbai to plan the attacks by paramilitary murderers. He scouted the targets and was in Karachi during the attack. But David Headley also had been an agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Oliver Stone: Nationalize Oil Industry

LONDON — The Gulf of Mexico oil spill shows that the United States should follow the example of South American socialists in nationalizing its energy industry, filmmaker Oliver Stone said Tuesday.

The Academy Award-winning director of "Born on the Fourth of July" and "JFK" said that America's country's natural wealth was too important to be left in private hands, telling journalists in central London that oil and other natural resources "belong to the people."

"This BP oil spill is typical" of what happens when private industry is allowed to draw revenue on what should be a public good, Stone said.

Australians for Palestine – Providing a Voice

Gandhi’s major statement on the Palestine and the Jewish question came forth in his widely circulated editorial in the Harijan of 11 November 1938, a time when intense struggle between the Palestinian Arabs and the immigrant Jews had been on the anvil in Palestine. His views came in the context of severe pressure on him, especially from the Zionist quarters, to issue a statement on the problem. Therefore, he started his piece by saying that his sympathies are all with the Jews, who as a people were subjected to inhuman treatment and persecution for a long time.

Maidhc Ó Cathail: Myth-Debunking Snopes Obscures Israel’s Role in 9/11

Described by one of its many fans – it apparently has over 6 million visitors per month – as “the grand-daddy of all fact-checking sites,” Snopes is downright cavalier, however, in its attitude to facts surrounding Israel’s role in the 9/11 attacks.

FLASHBACK - The Israeli Spy Ring

Prior to 9/11, the FBI had discovered the presence of a massive spy ring inside the United States run by the government of Israel. This seems a harsh gratitude from a nation which obtains 10% of its annual budget from the American taxpayer, $3+ billion a year. Over the years, American taxpayers have been required to send Israel more than four times what the US spent to go to the moon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Over at Forbes, Skull and Bones member Christopher Buckley has written an article suggesting that the recent arrested Russian spies are reason to distrust Russia and Russians as a class. Well, sauce for the goose; the fact is that the presumed Russian spy ring is quite tiny compared to the massive Israeli spy operation that was uncovered in the weeks before 9-11, and three of whose members were arrested after being seen cheering and "high-fiving" as the World Trade Towers collapsed.

So, if the 12 Russians spies detected a few weeks ago are a reason to distrust Russia, are not the hundreds of Israeli spies identified in 2001 a reason to distrust Israel?

After all, it wasn't Russians attacking Americans in international waters last May, was it?

Leaked G20 Documents Show Carbon Taxes Still High on Globalist Agenda

According to the documents, the delegates concluded that a process of fiscal consolidation would be the key solution to the crisis, involving country-specific ideas with central coordination...presumably by the G20 itself. Although the delegates evidently discussed the need to address the sovereign debt crisis "through cutting expenses and not through increased taxes," that statement is immediately followed in this attendee's notes by the idea of introducing carbon taxes.

The idea of funding a nascent global governmental structure through the introduction of carbon taxes is by no means a new one, having been proposed as a funding mechanism for a North American Union at a secret Security and Prosperity Partnership meeting in Banff, Canada in 2006.

Edward Bernays and the Assassination of Democracy

From Episode Two of the film series "The Century of the Self" by Adam Curtis. The nephew of Sigmund Freud, Edward Bernays started his business life as a publicist. While still in his twenties, he was part of the propaganda effort that drove the United States into in World War I (WW I.)

He personally advised several US presidents starting with Woodrow Wilson and counseled numerous corporations and business associations. Hitler's propaganda chief and Nazi henchman Joseph Goebbels was a reader and fan of Bernay's writing in particular Bernay's book "Crystalizing Public Opinion."

In this short excerpt from Curtis's film we see one example of Bernays at work.

Stuart Littlewood reviews ‘This Time We Went Too Far’ by Norman Finkelstein

Special for My Catbird Seat

“The Gaza invasion marked the climax of Israel’s descent into barbarism”

Quite simply, this is a cracker of a book and very timely.

In explaining how Israel’s war on Gaza in 2008/9 was not the defensive action it is always painted, Norman Finkelstein recalls the 1947 UN partition of historic Palestine and remembers how, in 1957, US President Eisenhower forced Israel to withdraw from Gaza by threatening sanctions and in the 1967 war Israel re-occupied it.

The book then takes us through the warm-up for the 2008/9 war and the subsequent whitewash.

Turkish FM met Hamas supremo in Damascus

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with Hamas supremo Khaled Meshaal in Damascus, Anatolia news agency reported Tuesday, a move that threatens to fan fresh tensions with Israel.

The two men met on Monday to discuss efforts to heal the rift between Hamas — the resistance militant group controlling the Gaza Strip — and the Fatah faction of Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas.

The Middle East peace process was also on their agenda, Anatolia said.

The meeting took place amid simmering tensions between Turkey and its one-time ally Israel over the killing of nine Turks on May 31 in an Israeli raid on a Turkish ship that was part of a flotilla carrying aid to Gaza.

Israel has reacted angrily to previous contacts between Turkish officials and Hamas.

White House Criticized for Summary Firing of USDA Official as Race Controversy Grows

The tape and firing continued a political controversy that began last week when the NAACP passed a resolution condemning the tea party movement for racism. That drew fire from conservatives like Sarah Palin as well as African-American tea party-backed candidates across the country who complained the civil rights organization had manufactured a racial controversy.

On his program Tuesday Glenn Beck said Sherrod deserved an opportunity to tell her side of the story before being fired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Breitbart, FOX News, and the White House, together with everyone who demanded Sherrod's head on a platter are looking like horses' rear ends this morning. And I thin they all got suckered because as I speculated on yesterday's radio show, the Democrats are trying to make racism the main issue going into November. This all began when the NAACP stated screaming that the Tea Party was racist (it isn't; it is a tax protest party) triggering this ill-conceived retaliation.

he good news is that racism as an election issue may have just been hoisted on its own petard with this stunt, removing it as a major issue from this campaign.

Climategate inquiry glosses over the facts

The tone of the Climategate inquiries was set by Britain's parliamentary inquiry. With an election looming, the parliamentary committee could only hold one day of hearings, and found that the scientists involved had not attempted to mislead people.

Yet the hearings did not include testimony from the most severe critics of the hockey stick graphic, such as Canadians Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, who could have explained exactly why the e-mails did suggest impropriety.

The parliamentary inquiry was also assured by the UEA that the quality of the science would be reviewed by another inquiry to be headed by Lord Oxburgh. Yet Lord Oxburgh's panel handed down a short report which did not examine the quality of the science at all.

When the “con” is clearly seen, “the mark” (that’s us) will see that all roads lead to the same duplicitous source: Israel and its operatives. The secret to Israel’s force-multiplier in the U.S. is its use of agents, assets and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers).

If none of the people visiting the site have already registered, the one-on-four dropout rate means that traffic actually going from the registration site to the Times site is just 84,800, or 1.06% of total UK newspaper traffic – a 93% fall compared with May.

OUR UNREPORTED ”COLD WAR” WITH ISRAEL

9/11 was like Pearl Harbor to America, uniting many, awakening bitter skepticism in a few. Where Pearl Harbor began America’s official role in crushing the Fascist juggernaut that threatened to dominate the world, 9/11 had quite the opposite effect. America’s response to 9/11 was oppression at home and a tirade of frenzied phobic reactions around the world. No American institution suffered more than the military. The team of Cheney and Rumsfeld, together since the disastrous Nixon years, began a process of purging America’s military of talent and leadership, instead building a force to serve a sinister agenda of religious heresy and extremist politics.

First Ms Nasr, already fired by the grovelling CNN for her effrontery in calling Fadlallah a "giant", grovelled herself. Rather than tell the world what a cowardly outfit she had been working for, she announced that hers was "a simplistic comment and I'm sorry because it conveyed that I supported Fadlallah's life's work.

Global Warming Scam : 2010 is Not the Hottest Year

According to Marc Morano at Climate Depot, the 10th of a degree difference they're talking about is the result of cherry-picking data.

Besides – this is summer, and what they're talking about is weather, not climate change.

But aside from the normally expected counter-analysis to warmist claims from those who are actually scientifically competent, there is a particular phrase in the new promo that immediately catches my attention - on record.

What record?

CLIMATEGATE - US Government Halts Funds For Climate Unit

The American government has suspended its funding of the University of East Anglia’s climate research unit (CRU), citing the scientific doubts raised by last November’s leak of hundreds of stolen emails.

Orwell's nightmare--big brother is here

A sampling of the major news stories today merely prove we are now living under the very tyranny about which Orwell warned and about which stalwart defenders of liberty such as Ayn Rand, Barry Goldwater, M. Stanton Evans, and Whitaker Chambers kept an ever-watchful eye.

Here are but a few troubling examples:

**The FCC and the FTC are now planning a government takeover of the news industry, complete with a tax on conservative radio and Internet websites in order to subsidize liberal media outlets that are losing revenue to the point of bankruptcy. This would effectively silence conservatives and give the mouthpieces of the Obama regime full control of the news. Does anyone care that Hitler and Stalin did the very same thing?

GORDON DUFF: TIME TO END AMERICAN OCCUPATION OF MIDDLE EAST

Even Imaginary Enemies Can Get Tired

For the last decade, America has been shuffling its entire military, including hundreds of thousands of private contractors, in and out of the Middle East on little more than a “snipe hunt.” Time for a reality check. Iraq never attacked the US. Reports say Al Qaeda may have fewer than 30 men in Afghanistan.

The Taliban has been asking for a cease fire for months. Turkey and Brazil negotiated a nuclear deal with Iran ending any possible threat, one we strangely, very strangely ignored. “Thermo-nuclear Israel’s” continual whining and manipulation is wearing thin. America’s economy, her Army and her suffering veterans demand an end to our Bush era phony war.

Robert Fisk: They're all grovelling and you can guess the reason

For that was the collective sin of Misses Nasr and Guy. What they said might have made Israel's supporters angry. And that will never do. The reality is that CNN should have told Israel's lobbyists to get lost, and the Foreign Office – which was indeed upbraided by the Israeli foreign ministry – should have asked the Israeli government when it is going to stop thieving Arab land. But as my old mate Rami Khoury put it in the Jordanian press this week, "We in the Middle East are used to this sort of racist intellectual terrorism. American and British citizens who occasionally dare to speak accurately about the Middle East and its people are still learning about the full price of the truth when Israeli interests are in the room."

How's Rupert Murdoch's paywall working out at the Times of London?

My sources say that not only is nobody subscribing to the website, but subscribers to the paper itself--who have free access to the site--are not going beyond the registration page. It's an empty world.

The wider implications of this emptiness are only just starting to become clear. A Murdoch and Fleet Street veteran with whom I've been corresponding about the paywall reported to me on his recent conversation with an A-list entertainment publicist: "What was really interesting to me was that this person volunteered a blinding realization. 'Why would I get any of my clients to talk to the Times or the Sunday Times if they are behind a paywall? Who can see it? I can't even share a link and they aren't on search. It's as though their writers don't exist anymore.'"

JEFF GATES: Another Israeli Operation?

Does Event Honoring Israeli Spy Suggest Another Israeli Operation?

Less than two weeks prior to the mass murder of September 11, 2001, the Israeli government made a $1 million grant to Israeli super-spy Jonathan Pollard. In retrospect, the facts suggest that grant may well have served as a signal to Israeli operatives inside the U.S.

On July 13, 2010, in observance of Pollard’s 9000th day of incarceration, the Jerusalem municipality dimmed the lights illuminating the Old City. This gesture of Israeli solidarity included a projection onto the darkened walls of a message urging that President Obama release their spy from prison.

Thus the concern among knowledgeable intelligence operatives that this Pollard commemoration may mean that another Israeli operation is underway.

Robin Yassin-Kassab: You did your national service in Cyprus and Egypt just before the 1956 Suez War. What effect did your first experience of the Middle East have on you? Why did you end up spending your life in the Middle East, particularly in its more violent corners? Have kidnappings and bannings discouraged you?

DeSeve might as well have said "nothing to look at here, folks, now move along." Or perhaps "hey, it's close enough for government work, so what's the problem?"

Pink Floyd’s Waters And Gilmour Tear Down “The Wall”

For the first time in half a decade, rock legends Pink Floyd reunited for a Palestine awareness benefit concert in England to raise money for young Palestinians, MSNBC reported Tuesday.

Feuding PINK FLOYD stars DAVID GILMOUR and ROGER WATERS put their differences aside on Saturday (10Jul10) to perform together at a the Hoping Foundation awareness benefit in England.

The two rockers hit the stage at Kiddington Hall in Oxfordshire, England to the amazement of guests in attendance. It was the first time the duo had shared a stage since Pink Floyd’s Live 8 appearance in 2005.

The former bandmates, who were accompanied by Guy Pratt and Waters’ son Harry, among others, played Floyd favourites:

Elias Harb interviews one of the leading voices in the movement to bring freedom to the people of Gaza.

Greta Berlin (France/US, English) has been an advocate for justice for the Palestinians since the early 60s. She is the mother of two Palestinian/American children whose father was born and raised in Safad, Palestine and is a 1948 refugee. She has an MFA in Theatre and a bachelor’s in English and, when she’s not working with the Palestinians, has spent the past 32 years teaching engineers and scientists how to design and deliver presentations. In 2003, she volunteered with the ISM (International Solidarity Movement), working in several villages in the occupied West bank as well as manning their media office, then returned to work again in 2003, 05 and 07.

CLIMATEGATE - NASA: First half of 2010 breaks the thermometer — despite “recent minimum of solar irradiance”

Following fast on the heels of the hottest Jan-May — and spring — in the temperature record, it’s also the hottest Jan-June on record in the NASA dataset [click on figure to enlarge].

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are three things wrong with this claim. First, we all; saw with our own eyes a harsh winter. We are seeing with our own eyes snow in Wyoming in June, and Calgary and Alberta getting hammered with snow in July, record LOW temperatures in San Diego and Los Angeles.

Second, the sensors used to report these record setting temperatures are sited near sources of heat, and comparison with surrounding sensors confirms the high readings are inconsistent with the surrounding temperatures.

Third, NASA (Never A Straight Answer) is a government agency, subject to pressures that come with the funding, and has previously been caught using bogus data to support the global warming agenda.

Paper puts up a paywall for comments

How about this for a paywall twist.... a US newspaper publisher has decided to charge users a fee for posting comments on its newspaper website.

From tomorrow, the Sun Chronicle, a Massachusetts paper, will charge would-be commenters a nominal one-off fee of 99 cents. But it has to be paid by credit card, which means providing a real name and address.

And the name on the credit card will be the name that will appear on comments. So it's goodbye to anonymity.

Police strangled me, punched me in head, manhandled me (peaceful protester at the G20)

As the van began moving and the door to the van closed, the two thugs in the back seat pulled me around so that I was laying face up with my head almost in between the passenger and driver seat. As they were doing so, Thug A was punching me in the stomach, just hard enough to shock someone who is delicate but not hard enough to harm me. As they punched me and turned me over, they said statements such as “stop struggling,” and “stop punching.” (Again, my hands were cuffed.) I immediately realized that they may be making such completely erroneous statements because we were being recorded, and I loudly stated “I’m not struggling,” and/or “I am not resisting arrest.”

Thug A sat on top of me over my pelvic area. My handcuffs were digging into my wrists. My only goal was to live through the experience without losing my humanity, my spirit, or my presence of mind, to find out where I was being taken, and to find out as much as I could about these thugs, whether they were officers or some sort of private contractors, i.e. paramilitary groups.

Thug B then squeezed my throat with his right hand, digging his thumb deeply into my carotid artery area, on the right side of my throat. He held this for perhaps ten seconds, as Thug A stepped on me, re-adjusting himself overtop of me. I almost passed out at that point as the carotid artery is the chief artery that supplies blood to the brain. At some point during or before this strangulation, I wet myself. Urine seeped into and through my clothing. Darkness almost overtook me, but I held on and I did not lose consciousness.

Bronner’s reporting has long been documented as being biased in favor of Israel.

The Spy Scare

By Justin Raimondo

We’re in the midst of a spy scare, one of those periodic bouts of paranoia that spreads, like a virus, from Washington on outward. This time, it’s alleged Russian spies, but the scare is already becoming a generalized fear, permeating official Washington and the “mainstream” media like a poisonous fog. Check out Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Michigan), a member of the House intelligence committee, Fran Townsend, CNN’s “national security correspondent,” and CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux in the “Situation Room,” bloviating oh-so-knowledgably about this latest “threat”:

“MALVEAUX: Well, Congressman, I want you to weigh in on this. How concerned are you that this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to spying inside of the United States?

Science behind climate change under fire - again

While the UN reports are often described as scientific and peer-reviewed, this claim of the Amazon being at high risk originated on a website of a Brazilian advocacy group. The original claim read that “Probably 30 to 40% of the forests of the Brazilian Amazon are sensitive to small reductions in the amount of rainfall."

The World Wildlife Fund says it cannot be held responsible for how the UN climate change group used its data.

So far no one seems to be able to say how a report that claimed parts of the Brazilian rainforest “probably” are “sensitive” was hyped to make things sound more dire.

Professor Ross McKintrick says no one should be surprised that such mistakes end up in these massive reports.

Noam Chomsky opposes Palestinian-led movement to boycott Israel

In an interview on the Council for the National Interest internet radio program “Jerusalem Calling,” MIT Professor Noam Chomsky, author of The Fateful Triangle and other books on Israel-Palestine, said that he opposes boycotting Israel.

In a July 8th interview with new CNI President Alison Weir, Dr. Chomsky at first denied that he opposed the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement, calling this an “internet rumor.”

However, when Weir said she had heard him say that he opposed boycott during a lecture at the University of California Berkeley several years ago, Chomsky admitted that he had opposed boycotting Israel then and said that he still did so now. He said that he felt that activists should instead only divest from American companies.

National interest has gone missing in USA and Israel

Lawrence Davidson argues that the power of Zionist lobbies in the United States and real-estate ideologues in Israel mean that war and expansionism will always take precedence over the national interest in both countries.

"The explanation given here helps us to understand why [Syrian President] Bashar Asad can knock at Israel’s locked door and no one in that country will bother to open it. It also helps us understand why Obama and Clinton turned their backs on the Turkish and Brazilian efforts to negotiate a deal with Iran. Both are reacting to the power and influence of domestic special interests. Compared to these interests, the "national interest" does not stand a chance."

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson gets set up, runs his mouth again and Hollywood turns mean.

He could face a year in jail for misdemeanor batter or "the courts could upgrade the charge to assault with enhancement of great bodily injury," "The maximum penalty for that is four years behind bars in a state prison, and the D.A.'s office almost always seeks state prison under those charges."

There is a very excellent show on CBS called 'Criminal Minds'. Well written and engaging, I enjoy watching the show very much. But I've noticed many cases of propaganda in the show. There was a CM Marathon on yesterday and while I've seen other instances of propaganda in the show, one that springs to mind is the use of CCTV surveillance cameras. They showed someone watching the monitors admitting that they aren't there to stop crime, but to catch perpetrators after the fact. In truth, even this is rare. It showed them using the cameras to witness a murder, then follow the 'perp' up out of the subway and onto the street. Unlikely, but it sure makes those cameras look useful, doesn't it?

Free speech in Barack Obama's America: Whatever you say, say nothing

Freedom of speech may be part of the United States Constitution but perhaps the First Amendment that enshrines it could do with a caveat or two being added.

Congress may make no law "abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press", the Bill of Rights lays down. That still holds true but, increasingly, speaking freely can get you fired or tarred for life.

Even more ominously, the internet and the increased ease of free communication is allowing the cannier politicians to escape scrutiny rather than be held to account.

Wake Up Americans

When will the American public wake up to the fact that Israel controls America? If the public doesn’t wake up, Israel will destroy America.

The US government is a hopelessly lost slave to Israeli dictates. The media wallows in abject servitude to Israel’s shills at the helm of the major film studios, broadcasting companies, newspapers and magazines.

After the Israelis attacked the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, most of the world condemned Israel for their blatant piracy, murder of nine humanitarian activists and serious injuries to dozens more.

Arab Americans protest CNN's firing of senior editor Nasr

Nasr's 20-year career at CNN ended Wednesday after a tweet mourning the death of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, a Lebanese Shiite cleric whom she called "one of Hezbollah's giants I respect a lot."

Facing a rash of criticism, she explained her tweet in a blog post, saying her respect was based on Fadlallah's advocacy for women's rights.

But by then, it was too late. CNN put out a statement a few hours later, saying her "credibility" had been "compromised."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Her credibility is "compromised?" What about Wolf Blitzer who worked for AIPAC, the openly anti-arab Jerusalem Post, and is a staunch supporter of Israel? Doesn't his obvious bias wreck his credibility? (rhetorical question, of course, as he already lost his years ago).

Obama’s Gitmo – Torturing the rule of law

By Chase Madar
Source: orwellsdreams

President Obama may lack the nerve to stare down Liz Cheney or Bibi Netanyahu, but no one can deny that our commander in chief has the guts to take on a child soldier. Come August, a military commission in Guantánamo will try Omar Khadr, a Canadian national captured outside Kabul in 2002, when he was just 15 years old. This will be only the third Gitmo trial and the Obama administration’s first, and there won’t be anything kinder and gentler about it.

If so, that would be good news for the U.S. provided he grasps that he’s been played for a fool—with the help of his top advisers. His political career is a product of the Chicago Outfit, including his presidency. Can he rise above that? I need to believe that he can.

An American “Terrorist” in London

By Kenneth O’ Keefe
Welcome to Orwell’s ‘1984’ ladies and gentlemen, where black is white, white is black, and the truth is nothing but a word.

My 1984 reality is culminating with the United States and Israeli Governments treating me and/or charging me with being a “terrorist”. Americans worry not, you can sleep better at night knowing your “homeland” is being defended from the likes of me. And Israel, rest easy as well, it’s Ken O’Keefe and his Arab collaborators who are in the Mossad crosshairs.

All kidding aside, I am a family man, with a beautiful family, a loving wife and baby boy, a boy who will be the biggest victim if his father is no longer in his life.

Climategate Investigations Are Arrogant Insults

There were two British investigations into the behavior of scientists at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia (UEA) exposed in leaked emails. Both reports provide no answers, no explanations and are only telling for what they did not ask or do and how they were manipulated. The blatant level of cover up is frightening. These are acts by people who believe they are unaccountable because they have carried out the greatest scam in history with impunity. The degree of cover up in both cases is an arrogant in-your-face statement that we are the power and are not answerable to anyone. Their cover up almost belittles the ones they are investigating.

Will America Free Omar Khadr From Gitmo?

BY DEBBIE MENON

Come August, a military commission in Guantánamo will try Omar Khadr, a Canadian national captured outside Kabul in 2002. He was a boy, aged 15 then. Now a burly, bearded 23-year-old who has spent one-third of his life at Guantanamo. He bears scant resemblance to the fresh-faced, teen, who had survived multiple gunshots wounds and several major surgeries. There must be some reason why this lad did not die from his wounds. A shotgun blast to the back with sufficient force to exit the chest is a pretty fatal event. Perhaps the Power that kept him alive this long will reveal His purpose in time.

As the United States Collapses, Media Worships LeBron James

Here are people by the tens of thousands begging LeBron James to stay on their team, yet these same people won’t go out and protest the looting of the Federal government, the banker-bailout or even the BP oil spill.

Yes, modern bread and circuses– endless ballgames, television and gossip about celeb birthday parties– has driven our culture to embrace the meaningless, while reducing our consciousness to mindless drivel. America– once the greatest cradle of imagination and wealth has fallen to a land of virtual morons who look up to decadent system-icons instead of leaders who could drive our future to greatness once again.

The Israeli stranglehold on CNN

The decision by the CNN administration to fire Octavia Nasr, a secular and thoroughly westernize woman, underscores the ethical bankruptcy of the leading American media, especially its harsh intolerance of non-conformist perceptions and convictions.
