SEC Employees Were Getting Off To Kiddie Porn While Your Economy Tanked

Over the past two years, more than a dozen Securities and Exchange employees and contractors have tried to view pornography on government computers at least 8,273 times. Here's what they were looking at while the global financial system cratered.

The Washington Times broke the story of the SEC's porn problem, which became the subject of numerous inspector general investigations, last month. And Dealbreaker subsequently published one report of an inspector general investigation into an SEC regional supervisor who viewed transvestite porn at work as stress relief.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That's funny; my wife says doing chores is all the stress relief I need!

States Plot to Block, Limit Health Care Reform Bill

The proverbial ink had yet to dry on the nation's new health care reform law Tuesday before two states -- Virginia and Florida -- filed lawsuits and more scrambled to put up legislative barricades between themselves and the bill requiring Americans to purchase health insurance or face stiff penalties.

The tactics, employed everywhere from Arizona to Virginia, are the strongest sign that the health care reform fight is far from over.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note the use of the word "plot", with all its negative connotations, in the headline.

Poland, Romania: U.S. Missile System From Baltic To Black Sea

The US missile defence shield and Polish-Romanian collaboration are the focal points on the agenda of Defence Minister Bogdan Klich on an official two-day visit to Bucharest.

Poland, which is to have a Patriot missile battery based in the north of the country, not far from Russia’s Kaliningrad border, will share its experience of the anti-missile systems with Romania.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this is a deliberate act to forestall the signing of the nuclear weapon reduction treaty with Russia indefinitely.

Obamacare: Taxing The American People Into Oblivion

Cheneyism with a Human Face: Obama's New Imperial Presidency

Call me a cynic, but I was hardly surprised to learn that the "change" regime is threatening to veto the 2010 intelligence authorization bill "over a provision that would force the administration to widen the circle of lawmakers who are informed about covert operations and other sensitive activities," The Washington Post reported.

Never mind that churlish congressional Democrats, like their corporatist Republican colleagues across the aisle, would crush each other in a stampede to see who'd be first in handing the Executive Branch whatever it wants.

This is as bad as it can get, folks, and it will occur unless the policy makers in the Texas Department of Education come to their senses before the final vote is taken in May.

Going it alone: a Third Intifada?

Can the people be blamed for wishing to take their fate into their own hands, when they are terrorized on a daily basis by a ruthless genocidal Israeli occupation force, while no convincing efforts against this are being made by those who are internationally accepted as representatives of the Palestinian voice? The recent murder of four Palestinian civilian youngsters within 24 hours in the Nablus region, Mohammad and Useid Qadus (both 16 years), Muhammad Faysal and Salah Muhammad Qawariq (both 19 years) by the Israeli army, which only led to some timid condemnations by representatives of the Palestinian Authority, may yet spell the beginning of a Third Intifada. If people do not see any meaningful action from their leadership, will they sit by idly and watch their sons being shot?

Shortly after announcing Israel’s commitment to defense in his address to the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Gala, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was disrupted by a demonstrator. Rae Abileah, 27, from Half Moon Bay, CA, jumped onto AIPAC Executive Director Howard Kohr’s private table alongside the stage and unfurled a pink banner that said “Netanyahu: Build Peace Not Settlements!” Abileah shouted, “Lift the siege of Gaza! No illegal settlements!” as she was forcefully removed from the building. A second disruption came moments later from Joan Stallard, from Washington, DC, who shouted, “Stop the settlements!”

In Israel today, things are not much different than life in the Shtetel when it comes to Passover preparations. But today there is a growing number of non observant Jews as well as a growing number of non Jews. This is a threat to the lifestyle of the self imposed Shtetel Jew living here today. The courts are allowing the sale of Chametz (leaven) this year. This has the ultra orthodox community up in arms. A Torah violation right under their noses!

Defeat In Victory: The Democrat’s Health Care Bill

What looks like a big victory for Obama and the Democrats may be their greatest undoing. It’s true that the passage of Obama’s health care bill represents a significant political victory for the Democrats. But sometimes a battle won could equal a lost war.

It’s telling that Obama had so much trouble in getting his own party to pass the bill on a simple majority basis: the bill was so blatantly watered down with the corporate hose that anyone with their name attached to it feared future electoral doom.

Closing Time: An Historic Confirmation of Corporate Power

"The health insurance legislation is a major political symbol wrapped around a shredded substance. It does not provide coverage that is universal, comprehensive or affordable. It is a remnant even of its own initially compromised self — bereft of any public option, any safeguard for states desiring a single payer approach, any adequate antitrust protections, any shift of power toward consumers to defend themselves, any regulation of insurance prices, any authority for Uncle Sam to bargain with drug companies, and any reimportation of lower-priced drugs."

Welcome to the US Republic of Corporatocracy, a government by the corporations, of the corporations, and for the corporations, brought to you courtesy of the best US Congress money can buy!

Notes On Israel’s Triumph To Disaster

Americans: Are You With Gen. Petraeus And Adm. Mullen Or With Israel ?

Disturbing findings of toxic uranium levels in Gaza

Studies conducted by a group of Italian researchers have revealed the presence of dangerous levels of toxins in the bodies of Palestinian victims of Israeli bombings during operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009. The results of tests conducted on a sample of 15 dead and wounded victims of the war on Gaza, in addition to another sample of 95 citizens, showed the presence of 30 toxic components, notably high levels of uranium. A senior Ministry of Health official in Gaza, Medhat Abbas, confirmed the findings during a press conference last Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: the disclaimer at the top of the article about disturbing images is absolutely correct.

But please, take a good look at what your tax dollars are buying in terms of the Israeli IDF's use of toxic chemicals against Palestinian citizens.

Imagine, for one moment, that the people here were your family, your friends, your loved ones.

Then imagine what you would think of a government and military that would resort to using these kinds of chemical weapons against a civilian population.

Joseph Mengele would have been proud of this kind of treatment of the "inferior others" by his government.

How bitterly ironic that so many of those in the Israeli government and IDF are direct descendants of those who survived the Holocaust in Germany.

Rotarix rotavirus vaccine contaminated, officials say

Federal health authorities recommended Monday that doctors suspend using Rotarix, one of two vaccines licensed in the United States against rotavirus, saying the vaccine is contaminated with material from a pig virus.

There is no evidence at this time that this material poses a safety risk," Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg told reporters in a conference call.

Obama promised the identities online of lobbyists and corporations that would benefit from tax increases, including how much these corporations would benefit.

The amount American taxpayers lose from the “health” insurance company welfare bill compared with universal health care that eliminates corporate middle-men is between $100 and $300 billion every year.

Netanyahu Rebukes Obama in AIPAC Speech

Though many expected him to deliver a more measured response in the wake of last week’s very public row with the United States, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered another angry rebuke to the Obama Administration over the settlement expansion which stalled the US brokered indirect peace talks.

Netanyahu declared that the settlements in occupied East Jerusalem weren’t technically settlements at all, because “everyone knows” that Jerusalem will be the eternal and undivided capital of Israel. Israel invaded and occupied East Jerusalem in 1967, along with the rest of the West Bank, and its legal control over the territory has never been established in international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is all political theatre, very carefully crafted, to obscure the real reason Netanyahu and Obama are meeting today; and that is to find a way to get a US lead war against Iran going, and "sell" the American people (yet again) on the notion that they must sacrifice their loved ones to "neutralize" yet another of Israel's alleged "existential threats" in the region.

Benjamin Netanyahu warns US that 'Jerusalem is not a settlement'

"The Jewish people were building Jerusalem 3,000 year ago and the Jewish people are building Jerusalem today. Jerusalem is not a settlement. It's our capital," Mr Netanyahu told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Netanyahu and his government, through a series of military and political actions, are attempting to provoke Palestinians into a 3rd intefata, or rebellion, against Israeli authority.

One has to wonder if such a rebellion would be used as Israel's "justification" for a massive slaughter of Palestinians, followed by forced deportation of every Palestinian left standing, and what the world's reaction to such acts would be.

Tell Me Again, Who Made The Desert Bloom?

So, on the eve of the partition resolution, in which the United Nations proposed to allocate 55 percent of the land to Jewish Palestine (including those parts that produced most of Palestine's leading crops, with the sole exception of the olive crop), and 45% to Arab Palestine, Palestinian Arabs were producing:

92% of Palestine’s grain
86% of its grapes
99% of its olives
77 % of its vegetables
95% of its melons
more than 99% of its tobacco
and 60% of its bananas.

Palestine's agricultural produce at that time had an annual value of approximately 21.8 million pounds sterling; 17.1 million of which was produced by Arab cultivation, and 4.7 million by Jewish cultivation. (See the exact numbers here).

Health care dictatorship: A crime against America

This is the medical equivalent of a wartime draft that forces soldiers into battle against their will.

US may try Sheehan for anti-war campaign

US authorities have arrested a number of anti-war protesters, including high-profile activist Cindy Sheehan, during a demonstration in Washington DC.

Sheehan, who has been and anti-war campaigner since she lost a son in the Iraq war, may stand trial, reports indicate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the Obama administration: if it is true that you are actually dense enough to attempt to bring Cindy Sheehan to trial, what charges would be made against her?

That she exercised her First Amendment rights, under the Constitution, of free speech and free assembly?!?

Making a martyr out of this woman and her movement will absolutely invigorate every bit of anti-war sentiment which exists in this country, and that sentiment is growing exponentially by the millisecond.

Thinking people understand that we were lied in to the war with Iraq because of the potential for private profit from the oil.

They also understand that the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan were to produce two outcomes, also for private profit; the installation of pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil, and the control of the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

People are furious that their sons, daughters, precious family and friends, our brave young men and women in uniform, have fought, died, or gotten maimed for life in military operations which have absolutely nothing to do with the safety and security of the United States, but everything to do with private profit.

That is not what these young men and women signed up for, when they volunteered to join the US military.

And if our physically or mentally wounded Vets did, by some miracle manage to make it home, sick to death with depleted uranium poisoning, or maimed for life, the same government which cavalierly sent them into harm's way for private profit, found most of them completely expendable when they got back.

You’ll get the same thing: anti-Semitic, Holocaust denier, want to kill all the Jews, etc. It doesn’t matter what the facts are. Bear in mind that you are dealing with intellectuals, that is, what we call ‘commissars’ and ‘apparatchiks’ in enemy states.

Nor was semen that was found on Twila Busby, who was raped, or skin found under her fingernails, ever DNA tested to see who they belonged to.

U.S. judge orders release of Guantanamo detainee

The ruling by Judge James Robertson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordering Slahi's release from the controversial prison for foreign terrorism suspects, was classified.

A declassified version, with details of the judge's decision, is expected to be released later. Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd said the agency "was reviewing the decision."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting human being, I wouldn't bet that this man will be released.

Note the following paragraph:

"In his habeas corpus petition in 2008 seeking release from the Guantanamo prison, his lawyers argued Slahi had been subject to harsh interrogation techniques authorized by then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld."

The government doesn't want the sickening embarrassment of what was done to many of these men to become public knowledge. And I can guarantee you that waterboarding wasn't the worst of it.

Geithner says Fannie, Freddie overhaul must wait

US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on Tuesday swatted aside pressure for a swift reform of troubled government-backed mortgage giants as data pointed to a still struggling real estate market.

Geithner told Congress any restructuring of lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which received a 100-billion-dollar-plus government bailout at the height of the housing crisis, "must be done as part of a reform of the wider housing finance system."

Webmaster's Commentary: 


As reported on 5 March, 2010 in:


"Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may force lenders including Bank of America Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co. and Citigroup Inc. to buy back $21 billion of home loans this year as part of a crackdown on faulty mortgages."

"That’s the estimate of Oppenheimer & Co. analyst Chris Kotowski, who says U.S. banks could suffer losses of $7 billion this year when those loans are returned and get marked down to their true value. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both controlled by the U.S. government, stuck the four biggest U.S. banks with losses of about $5 billion on buybacks in 2009, according to company filings made in the past two weeks."

One has to wonder just where that one hundred billion dollars of taxpayer-funded bailout for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac actually wound up.

Congress speaks in 'one voice' in support of Israel: lawmaker

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi welcomed Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress on Tuesday, and hailed strong bilateral ties that she said could never be severed.

"The long friendship between the United States and Israel is founded on common values: democracy, pluralism and freedom and common hopes for peace and security for our children," said Pelosi, the top lawmaker in the House of Representatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...democracy, pluralism, freedom, and common hopes for peace and security"?!?!?

Madame Speaker, can you not hear the disgusted laughter coming from the rest of the world as you make those remarks?

When it comes to those values (particularly as they affect Arab Israelis and Palestinians), those values are only practiced in the breach, not in their observation.

But you, as well as do all the other cowards in Congress, keenly appreciate the reality that unless you give the Israeli lobby everything they want, your chances of getting re-elected in Congress are slim to none.

This is why the US is almost certainly gearing up for a war against Iran, a war which could go global and involve both China (Iran's largest trading partner) and Russia.

Anti-Western militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr holds balance of power

The main issue to be negotiated is whether the Sadrists would be allowed to run their own militia while part of a government. Mr Allawi and Mr al-Maliki are believed to have demanded that al-Mahdi Army and its related groups be dissolved.

The core support for the Sadrist movement comes from poor Shias in Baghdad and the south. At the March 7 election — the results of which have still not been fully released because of counting disputes — the Sadrists formed an alliance with the Islamic Supreme Council but then took about three times as many seats. This shift in Shia support could transform politics as pragmatists are edged out by a more anti-American organisation.

It is interesting to note that Al-Sadr has very close ties to Iran.

PROPAGANDA ALERT - Canada reports mildest winter on record

Canada jumps into spring after having recorded the mildest and driest winter on record, Environment Canada reported Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hold it, only last December, the Calgary Herald, another publication owned by Canwest, reported exactly the opposite, saying "Cold snap grips B.C., sets dozens of records again on Thanksgiving!

Indeed, all across Canada record cold was being reported from Quebec to Alberta in the harshest winter since the 1960. In some parts of Canada, all time historical low temperatures were recorded!

Obviously the global warming cult is back, and these arrogant sons of bitches are thinking they can make you forget what you saw and felt with your own senses in favor of the proclamations on pretty printed pieces of paper. The strategy seems to be, "Oh, well, it may have been very cold where you were, but everywhere else it was a balmy day!

Environment Canada has even gone as far as to claim that this previous winter was "shockingly" warm! Propaganda does not get any more obvious than this!

Slavoj Žižek on resurrecting the Left -

In this short clip cultural theorist Slavoj Žižek speaks directly to those on the revolutionary path. With characteristic zeal, he describes the state of the Left following 2009's global economic decline and shares his outlook on the road ahead for advocates of progressive and radical sociopolitical ideologies. Arguing that the political response to the socioeconomic tragedy more firmly entrenched the ruling capitalist ideology and subverted it into an 'organic corporate socialism', he suggests that "capitalism as we knew it cannot survive". He then expresses concern for what he sees as a 'decay into soft authoritarianism' and calls upon the Left to mobilize.

Despite the best efforts of its servants to swaddle it within layer after layer of tender-hearted rhetoric, the State remains as Nietzsche described it: "the coldest of all cold monsters.... Everything it says, it lies; and whatever it has it has stolen." It "bites with stolen teeth, and it bites often...."

Bearing that last maxim in mind, we can discern the true intentions behind "Obamacare" in the fact that it includes the largest expansion of the IRS -- both in terms of power and personnel -- since the reign of FDR, America's first fascist President-For-Life.

Seven years ago American peace activist Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protesting against the demolition of Palestinian homes in Gaza. Her parents are now suing the Israeli government. The trial got underway on the anniversary of her death. RT caught up with filmmaker Simone Bitton, who made it her mission to find justice.

Today was mother’s day in Palestine. It was not a good day for my mother. In the morning my sister took her to an eye doctor in Hebron as her sight is affected by her diabetes. On the way back, my sister was slapped by an Israeli policeman with a ticket of 500 NIS (roughly $120) for making what he considers an illegal turn.

US’ “Greatest Generation” won WW2 against wars like the US fights today in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran…

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

The sacrifice and victory of the “Greatest Generation” was codified in the US-created treaty of the UN Charter: invading other nations, Wars of Aggression, would be unlawful.

The spirit and letter of these strict limits to lawful war are clear: war is only allowed if, and only if, it is in self-defense from an armed attack from a nation’s government and/or authorized by the UN Security Council (UNSC). Self-defense from individual attacks of terror is unaffected by the UN Charter.

Instant Greater Israel –Just Add Water

The Litani passes closest to Israel at Nabatiya in south Lebanon which is only some four kilometres from the Israeli border and for many years it has been the dream of the Zionists to have control of the Litani’s waters for use in Israel. The last attempt Israel made at taking the Litani River, as we know, ended in disaster for them when they were defeated by Hezbollah in 2006 despite heavy Lebanese civilian losses.

Soldiers on Sale... Who’s In Charge of These Hired Killers?

A fascinating scandal has erupted in Washington over the use of mercenaries (‘private contractors’ in US terminology) that is exposing the dark underbelly of America’s foreign wars. It has been that the Pentagon and other US intelligence agencies secretly fielded mercenaries in Afghanistan, Pakistan (aka “Af-Pak”), and Iraq to assassinate tribal militants.

US law forbids murder or using mercenaries. But, as the Roman jurist Cicero said, “laws are silent in times of war.”

A complacent West confronts a smug Israel

By Dan Lieberman
Mar 22, 2010, 00:15

Words can act as bombs by creating panic and disarray so that the adversary becomes totally confused. Israel has written the book on how to get its way by throwing the ‘word bomb.’

Isn’t it obvious that the announcement to build 1,600 new homes in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo is part of a contrived plan? After all, the prime minister must have had many discussions of these plans with his interior minister. He showed this by replying quickly to the facts concerning the planned construction. Besides, why was it necessary for the interior minister to make a public disclosure? To whom was he disclosing the information? Unless, the world recognizes the orderliness of the disorderly conduct, the Middle East will continue its path of additional destruction. The well contrived plan of bombing the ‘negotiations’ with a seemingly off-hand remark that the Interior Ministry plans 1,600 new homes for East Jerusalem has had its effects.

America’s Secret Prisons

On January 28 in TomDispatch.com, Anand Gopal headlined, “Night Raids, Hidden Detention Centers, the ‘Black Jail,’ and the Dogs of War in Afghanistan,” recounting unreported US media stories about killings, abductions, detentions, interrogations, and torture in “a series of prisons on US military bases around the country.” Bagram prison, for example, is “a facility with a notorious reputation for abusive behavior,” including brutalizing torture and cold-blooded murder.

Shoot To Kill Policy

Like in Ireland during our conflict the British had a “shoot to Kill” policy, and now in Palestine the Zionists have a “shoot to kill” policy.The problem with having a “shoot to kill” policy, is that it often causes civilian murders. And sometimes it even backfires.

Mossad Comes to America: Death Squads by Invitation

In the face of world-wide governmental condemnation (except from the Zionist-occupied White House and US Congress), the PMAJO slavishly backs any brutal murder committed by the Israeli secret police anywhere in the world and at anytime. The recent assassination of Hamas leader, Mahmoud Mabhouh, in Dubai is a case in point. The PMAJO has defended all of Mossad’s criminal actions leading up to the murder, including extensive identity theft and the stealing or falsification of passports and official documents from several European countries, presumably allied to the Zionist state.

Israel’s “No renting to Arabs” policy

Jonathan Cook reports on how the efforts of one rare Israeli Jewish couple to coexist with fellow Arab citizens have been thwarted by their elected racist Jewish community officials.

”Three of the couple’s six dogs have been mysteriously poisoned; Mrs Zakai’s car has been sprayed with the words ”Arab lover” and the windows smashed; her three children in school are regularly taunted and bullied by other pupils; and a collection of vintage cars in the family’s yard has been set on fire in what police say was an arson attack.”

The deal, signed with Carbon Motors Corporation, includes the delivery of "more than 240,000" six-cylinder engines, transmissions and exhaust systems, a statement said.

ADL’s Attempt To Sodomize America

Br Nathanael: Having grown up in Judaism, it is considered a disgrace to the Jewish family if a son or daughter identifies as a homosexual or lesbian. What then is the ADL’s ultimate goal with this new legislation?

Ted Pike: The aim of the Anti Defamation League is to establish the federal government as the pro-homosexual educator and punisher of Christian opponents of homosexuality at every level of public schooling. HR 4530 amounts to federal endorsement of adolescent homosexuality as a legitimate, normal alternative.

UNHRC denies us right to self-defense'

Israel charged Monday that the United Nations Human Rights Council does not believe it has the right to self defense against the rockets which Gaza Palestinians launch against its citizens on the southern border.

"You have done nothing about it and you expect that Israel does nothing either," said Israel's ambassador to the UN in Geneva, Roni Leshno Yaar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israel's ambassador to the UN, Roni Leshno Yaar.

There is something the Israeli government could "do about" those Kassams allegedly fired by Palestinians:

1. You could lift the siege of Gaza.

2. You could declare precisely what the borders of Israel are.

3. You could come to the negotiating table, including all Palestinian factions (including Hamas) and hammer out a peace treaty between the two entities, ensuring a just and lasting peace.

But of course, Israel will never do any of those things.

And I really don't know why you're so outraged by these resolutions: Israel generally ignores UN resolutions anyway.

'Israel's security strengthens US'

Clinton’s message on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process was received politely if not enthusiastically by most of the 7,500 or so AIPAC activists at her Monday morning speech. Despite the recent tensions, there was no obvious booing or other voicing of disapproval, and several of her comments on the subject received some applause.

Her statements on Iran, however, garnered much more enthusiastic backing.

“The United States is determined to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons,” she said to one of a handful of standing ovations. “Our aim is not incremental sanctions, but sanctions that will bite.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent that our current Secretary of State finds that she cannot grovel enough to the current Israeli government, which is hell-bent on causing more pain and suffering for the Palestinians, and creating more regional instability by rattling its sabers against literally every one of its neighbors.

The statement on sanctions must have been music to AIPAC members' ears.

They understand that unilateral or multi-lateral sanctions (bypassing the UN) will simply be a prelude to the US-led war against Iran.

This means that it will be our kids in the military who will do the fighting, dying, and getting maimed to neutralize yet another of Israel's "existential threats" in the region, as happened with Iraq.

Such an attack, however, is fraught with peril for this country, particularly if Russia and China intervene on Iran's behalf.

Just a reminder: Russia and China have nukes.

Mar 22 10:25

Assassinating Hamas won't work

Beyond the tactical and strategic side of this practice lies a darker reality. By killing their leaders, Israel is sending a clear message of rejection and contempt to the Palestinians. Israel is saying, and has been saying for decades: we do not negotiate. Israel's assassination policy should be understood as a complement to its politics; its refusal to arrive at a compromise with its neighbours is the real story behind the extrajudicial killings.

Perhaps the most effective way to deal with Hamas is to bargain with its leaders rather than to assassinate them. If the barbaric culture of killing is abandoned and replaced with a truthful attempt to reach an agreement with our neighbours, perhaps today's threats can become tomorrow's hopes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very excellent commentary on the Israeli practice of extrajudicial assassinations, but it misses one very critical point.

Israel doesn't care about peace: it only cares about the expansion of its territory by any means necessary.

The Israeli government believes that any violence against it strengthens its "victimhood" status in the eyes of the world, and therefore believes itself justified in its retaliation against Palestinian leadership in the form of extrajudicial assassinations.

An Attack on Healthcare in the Guise of Reform

Afghanistan Karzai reveals talks with Afghan rebels

Hamid Karzai has held face-to-face talks with active insurgents representing one of the most violent rebel leaders operating in Afghanistan, the Afghan president's office said today.

According to the organisation's spokesman Haroun Zarghoun, the delegates presented a 15-point plan, including a call for foreign troops to withdraw from Afghanistan within six months, starting in July. Six months after that an interim government would be appointed and preparations made for fresh elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and NATO will not allow this to happen, period, end of discussion.

The pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil have not yet been installed, and this was one of the primary outcomes desired by the US from the moment of the US and NATO invasion of Afghanistan.

A sweet problem: Princeton researchers find that high-fructose corn syrup prompts considerably more weight gain

"Some people have claimed that high-fructose corn syrup is no different than other sweeteners when it comes to weight gain and obesity, but our results make it clear that this just isn't true, at least under the conditions of our tests," said psychology professor Bart Hoebel, who specializes in the neuroscience of appetite, weight and sugar addiction. "When rats are drinking high-fructose corn syrup at levels well below those in soda pop, they're becoming obese -- every single one, across the board. Even when rats are fed a high-fat diet, you don't see this; they don't all gain extra weight."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

High fructose corn syrup is ubiquitous.

Read the label of anything you're thinking about buying at your grocery store first, and if this is a an ingredient in this product, don't put it into the shopping cart.

This product not only contributes to weight gain; it also creates problems for anyone with sugar metabolism issues, like diabetes, or hypoglycemia.

Navy warns ships about al Qaeda risk near Yemen

The Navy is warning ships sailing in waters near Yemen that al Qaeda is planning seaborne attacks similar to the 2000 suicide boat bombing of the USS Cole.

A warning notice posted on the Web site of the Office of Naval Intelligence and dated March 10 stated that the alert was issued to promote security for shipping companies and other vessels transiting the piracy-plagued region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As recently as 17 March, 2010, as reported at:


"Petraeus Claims Iran Aiding al-Qaeda"

"Iran is assisting al Qaeda by facilitating links between senior terrorist leaders and affiliate groups, the commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East told Congress on Tuesday.

Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of the U.S. Central Command, also said Iran’s nuclear program is facing problems, and as a result, Tehran is not expected to emerge with a nuclear weapon this year."

One has to wonder if perhaps some kind of "false flag" event is about to be conjured up relatively soon by those for whom it would be geopolitically beneficial, to blame on Al Qaeda and Iran.

Israeli army explanation 'simply impossible'

Live ammunition killed two 16-year-old Palestinian boys in the northern West Bank over the weekend, despite the Israeli military's denials, medical officials and human rights advocates said Sunday.

"Contrary to what was published, live fire was not used. The Palestinians were hurt by rubber bullets used during the incident," an army spokesman said Saturday and reiterated Sunday, citing an initial inquiry.

But medical findings appeared to corroborate testimony by witnesses, a senior Palestinian Authority official, and emergency responders that, regardless of the circumstances, rubber-coated bullets could not have caused the injuries in question.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You know when representatives of the IDF are lying about any kind ofincident like this: they open their mouths, and they speak.

Israeli education ministry censors Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The office of the minister of education forbade distributing a booklet for kids about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, because it didn’t like two articles in the declaration, as well as some of the illustration in the booklet.

These two articles are as follows:

"Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution." (Article 14)

"Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance." (Article 18)

“Passage Of The Healthcare Bill Means The Double-Dip Is Coming” – Market Insight From Permabull Jim Cramer Who Just Turned Bearish

Either the market doesn’t care that the health care bill will pass – and it will — or it doesn’t think that the proposal will cost that much — something I think is nuts. Which brings us to a very tenuous crossroad: We have to wonder if this is one of those occasions, like in 2008, where the market doesn’t see the coming catastrophe. Or perhaps the market sees any resolution as positive.

Health care reform bill dooms America to Pharma-dominated sickness and suffering

The new legislation does, however, lock in billions of dollars in monopoly profits for the pharmaceutical companies — the same companies who spent millions of dollars pushing for its passage and who depend on the continuation of sickness and disease for their future profits.

There’s only one problem with this health care reform bill: It doesn’t reform health care. It has almost nothing to do with health care at all, in fact: It’s really more of an effort to expand a broken sick-care system. When faced with the problem that our sick-care system doesn’t work, Congress somehow decided that fixing the problem merely involved expanding the failures to include everyone!

ObamaCare To Be Enforced By IRS 'Bounty Hunters'

A new analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee minority staff estimates up to 16,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses in the 'reconciliation' bill being taken up by the U.S. House of Representatives this weekend, according to Brady.

"When most people think of health care reform they think of more doctors exams, not more IRS exams," says U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, the top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee. "Isn't the federal government already intruding enough into our lives? We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America, not thousands more IRS agents."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bill is absolutely not about health care: it is about a huge increase in taxes, and lining the pockets of insurance executives.

Lebanese army fires on Israeli warplanes: military

Lebanese anti-aircraft guns opened fire on two Israeli warplanes that were violating its airspace at medium altitude on Sunday, the military said.

The incident came amid rising regional tension and heightened concern in Lebanon over recent Israeli threats against Shiite militant party Hezbollah and its backers Syria and Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is itching to get back into Lebanon, and is doing its level best to provoke a nasty military response which will give them the "justification" for another all-out attack.

If they get what they are looking for, this time, they will go all the way to the Litani River, because they desperately need the water resources.

Central economic planning has failed. A much bigger economic crisis is coming. And, every country in the world is technically bankrupt.

Former Obama Aide New Head of AIPAC

Lee “Rosy” Rosenberg, a jazz recording industry veteran capitalist who accompanied U.S. President Barack Obama on his campaign trip to Israel two years ago, takes over on Sunday as the new president of American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Rosenberg also served on the president’s national campaign finance committee.

The new AIPAC president hails from Chicago, the home state of President Obama, and also is on first-name terms with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, President Obama’s senior advisor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, with AIPAC's agenda fully focused on Iran this year, how well Lee Rosenberg is going to be able to "sell" Obama on attacking Iran to "neutralize" yet another of Israel's "existential threats" in the region (and for Israel, every one of it's neighbors is an "existential threat"!)

US ‘Victory’ in Settlements Row Short-Lived

In his most recent public comments, Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated that he would like to see the “indirect talks” with the Palestinian Authority resume, but that he absolutely would not ever agree to restrict construction in occupied East Jerusalem, the issue upon which the talks have stalled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was absolutely no US "victory" on the settlements issue.

This was pure public theatre, period, end of discussion.

Israel will simply keep doing what is has been doing (building on illegally occupied land) and will not suffer any tangible consequences from the US, as always.

Obama Pays More Than Buffett as U.S. Risks AAA Rating

The bond market is saying that it’s safer to lend to Warren Buffett than Barack Obama.

The $2.59 trillion of Treasury Department sales since the start of 2009 have created a glut as the budget deficit swelled to a post-World War II-record 10 percent of the economy and raised concerns whether the U.S. deserves its AAA credit rating. The increased borrowing may also undermine the first-quarter rally in Treasuries as the economy improves.

Some city councilors and a handful of residents Tuesday night suggested revising a policy that governs the police department's use of Tasers, and raised questions about a local officer's decision to repeatedly use his stun gun to subdue a 58-year-old homeless woman who suffers from a mental illness.

"If we had a police officer that was having an issue with this woman and things weren't going well … why didn't the officer ask for backup instead of using force?" Poirier asked.

Health care reform bill dooms America to Pharma-dominated sickness and suffering

(NaturalNews) Today the medical mafia struck another devastating blow to the health and freedom of all Americans.

Zionism’s dark forces don’t want the lights on

At the opening of AIPAC’s annual foreign policy conference its new president, Lee Rosenberg, was not a happy man. As he put it, “In recent days we have witnessed something (the Obama administration’s initial public anger with Netanyahu and his government) very unfortunate.”

The Biden “incident”, Rosenberg said, was “regrettable”, but Netanyahu had apologized “four separate times” and said “the announcement” (of more Jewish construction in occupied Arab East Jerusalem) was “hurtful and should not have been made.” Quite so, Mr. Rosenberg. It would have been much better from Zionism’s point of view if the announcement had not been made and Israel had just got on with the business of de-Arabizing East Jerusalem.

Here’s an interesting short video of candidate Obama discussing his uncle who was part of the Black unit that liberated the Auschwitz Concentration Camp at the end of World War II.

The Most Important Chart of the Century

Modern monetary theory does not understand, nor does it correctly describe the debt backed money world in which we live. Velocity, for example, slows as debt saturation occurs. This is only common sense, and yet the formulas do not account for the bad math of debt, nor its non linear function. Velocity is blamed partially on the psychology of “consumers.” What nonsense. It is as mechanical as the engine in your car, it was designed that way. Once people, businesses, and governments become saturated with debt, new money/ debt when introduced can only be used to service prior existing debt.

Uk 'could Not Fight A War With Iran'

BRITAIN does not currently have the military resources to engage in a conflict with Iran, according to a leading defence analyst.

The warning comes after it emerged that RAF Tornado crews are getting barely 10 hours of flying time a month because of drastic cuts imposed by the Government to fund the war in Afghanistan.

This compares with 20 hours a month in the late Eighties, then considered as the “bare minimum for operational effectiveness”.

Arctic winds and not global warming 'responsible for much of record loss of sea ice'

Strong winds and not global warming are to blame for much of the record-breaking loss of ice in the Arctic Ocean in recent years, new research reveals.

Ice blown out of the Arctic area by winds can explain the one-third drop of sea ice since 1979, scientists believe.

The study helps to explain the huge loss of ice in the region during the summers of 2007 and 2008, after which some commentators suggested the Arctic Ocean would be ice-free during the summertime within a decade.

Strategies for Revolutionaries: Animals, Humans & the Implications of Consciousness -

Western civilization, like its analogs throughout history, is plagued by taboos of all sorts. We have taboos about how to relate with potential mates on first dates, taboos about the quality and quantity of information we share with colleagues, taboos about gender dynamics, class dynamics, and all sorts of other relationships. Many of these taboos have become so ingrained within the social consciousness that any challenge to them can be seen as an act of profanity and an indignity to witness. When this happens, there is – to borrow from Lacan – often some deep ideologic chasm waiting to be traversed.

Dodgy BitDefender update bricks systems

A dodgy update from BitDefender on Saturday bricked Win 64-Bit systems after it was applied.

Rogue signature updates meant that multiple Windows and BullGuard files were falsely flagged as infected with a Trojan (now identified as Trojan-FakeAlert-5) and quarantined. Affected systems were subsequently left with applications that wouldn't work on boxes that were incapable of successfully rebooting.

The ropey update was available for around three and half hours before it was pulled. BitDefender has apologised for the snafu and issued advice on restoring borked systems.

Americans are now to be forced at the point of a gun to buy health insurance mandated by the federal government. The government will dictate what services are to be covered and many aspects of what will be charged for those services. The government will dictate when and to whom these services will be provided, since it must ration health care severely. Of course, it will bring on the rationing a bit slowly so that We the People will stay in the ever hotter water just as frogs do if the heat is turned up gradually.

16,500 more IRS agents needed to enforce Obamacare

New tax mandates and penalties included in Obamacare will cause the greatest expansion of the Internal Revenue Service since World War II, according to a release from Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas.

A new analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee minority staff estimates up to 16,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses in the ‘reconciliation’ bill being taken up by the U.S. House of Representatives this weekend. ...

A People’s Guide to the Health Care Bill

In spite of the hysterical complaints of Republicans, the truth is that the health care measure House Democratic leaders hope to ram through this weekend is a disaster in the making for working people and a massive giveaway to the medical-pharmaceutical-insurance complex.

Mr Obama turns up the socialist ratchet

Here in Britain, where filthy wards in NHS hospitals, for example, have been a regular staple of the UK newspagers, the standard response is usually to demand even more money, more rules, and so forth. If you challenge the model of tax-funded healthcare free at the point of delivery, then you are political dogfood. And Mr Obama and his allies know that. As Mark Steyn has been putting since before Mr Obama's election, Mr O. is counting on what the UK politician Sir Keith Joseph once dubbed the "ratchet effect": ratchet socialism a little more, and make it harder and harder for anyone to push back.

Health Care Bill Worse than 911

“The 911 tragedy will pale in comparison to the damages that our country will experience as a result of the passage of this government take over of our health care industry,” I said. “Way more people will die as a result of this bill than died in 911 and the wars that followed it.”

Depleted Uranium: A War Crime Within a War Crime

By William Bowles
21 March, 2010

As if destroying a country and its culture ain't bad enough, how about destroying its future, its children? I want to scream it from the rooftops!
Since 1991, the U.S. has released the radioactive atomicity equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs into the global atmosphere. That is 10 times the amount released during atmospheric testing which was the equivalent of 40,000 Hiroshima bombs. The U.S. has permanently contaminated the global atmosphere with radioactive pollution having a half-life of 2.5 billion years.

Bank For International Settlements (BIS): How The Rothschilds Control And Dictate To The World

Bank For International Settlements (BIS): How The Rothschilds Control And Dictate To The World
by William Dean A. Garner

For decades, people have urged me, pushed me, prodded me, practically peeled off my skin, pulled out my eyes, and yanked out my brain to prove it, i.e. show them the data, the results, the books, manuals, pamphlets, journals, monographs, voice and video recordings, all the resources I have used to make the statements I do about the Brzezinski Cartel and the Rothschilds.

On the evening of St. Patrick’s Day 2010, I feel now is the time . . . but with a twist.

Obamacare: It’s About Enriching Bankers and Wall Street

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean says Obamacare was written by Insurance corporations.

Makes sense, considering the fact Obama’s health care “reform” was crafted at the behest of large insurance corporations. “This is a very good bill for insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies,” said Rep. Stephen Lynch, a Democrat, on Thursday. “The insurers still rule,” Lynch added. “Were just pumping subsidies into the current system, but that won’t drive down costs.”
