WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


"Income taxes are by far the most horrible of the taxes as they punish you for producing and creating wealth. After all, if the purported reasons for sin taxes such as alcohol and cigarette taxes is to de-incentivize people from drinking and smoking, what do you think an income tax does?" -- Robert Taylor

More cuts loom as state faces $295m in red ink

Massachusetts is potentially facing a new budget gap of up to $295 million this year, a grim forecast that state officials said could spell yet another round of painful cuts before the fiscal year ends in June.

Should Conspiratorial Thinking Be The Default Position?

Considering the number of times governments have been caught lying over the last few decades, we have to ask the question, should the belief that major world events and political developments happen as a result of a conspiracy of some form or other be the default position in contemporary thinking, or should we continue to blindly trust government and afford it the credibility it plainly doesn’t deserve in order to maintain a perceived sense of order?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trust arrives on foot but leaves on horseback. The fact is that the US Government is in the middle of a huge credibility crisis of its own making and anyone still declaring an abiding trust of the government is either getting paid by that government or should not be allowed to operate machinery as they are clearly a danger to themselves and others.

U.S. tough love is the kind Israel needs

Israel - addicted to the occupation, and showing symptoms of overdose and accumulated damage - has finally found a savior to rescue it from its plight. Israel's redeemer hasn't just stood idly by for 40 years, but has even facilitated the habit. However, it seems that change may at last be in the air.

'Deeming' vs. the Constitution

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will ram the unpopular Senate health bill through the House without a vote. Article 1, Sect. 7 of the Constitution says she can't.

Many House Democrats are reluctant to go on record in support of the Senate bill. Pelosi's strategy is to "deem" it passed, go straight to a vote on a package of reconciliation "fixes" and then present both the Senate bill and reconciliation package to the president for signing.

In recent years, the US Supreme Court has twice struck down attempts to abbreviate the lawmaking process required by Article 1, Sect 7. Though it's been used before on less controversial legislation, Pelosi's tactic won't survive a constitutional challenge.

Obama backs plan to legalize illegals

President Obama gave a thumbs up Thursday to the outline of a plan to legalize illegal immigrants and create a flow of low-skilled foreign workers for the future, saying the immigration bill being worked on by a Republican and a Democrat is "promising."

The senators also proposed to turn all Social Security cards into tamper-proof IDs to be checked by employers when they are about to hire a worker. The cards would include biometric information designed to prevent counterfeiting -- but the senators said the information would not be stored in a government database.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Never believe what this government says about not storing data in a permanent database: that will ultimately be the next step.

Anti-Defamation League Goes After Petraeus, Calls His Views 'Dangerous'

General David Petraeus has come under fire from the Anti-Defamation League for comments he made before the Senate Armed Services Committee this week in which he suggested that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict foments anti-American sentiment due to the perception that the US favors Israel.

"Enduring hostilities between Israel and some of its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to advance our interests in the area of responsibility," Petraeus said Wednesday. "Arab anger over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of U.S. partnerships with governments and peoples [in the region]."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel doesn't like it at all when someone in the US military not only has a magnificent grasp of the obvious, but actually states it in public.

Republicans assail IRS provision in health care bill

Ranking member Dave Camp (R-Mich.) said many Americans have already rejected the call for health care reform for other reasons and an expansion of the IRS should only add to call to "kill the bill."

Taxpayers could be required to buy insurance under President Barack Obama’s reform proposal by 2014 or face penalties of roughly $325 per individual that the IRS would collect.

Rebellion in America heats up as 5th state exempts guns

A fifth state – South Dakota – has decided that guns made, sold and used within its borders no longer are subject to the whims of the federal government through its rule-making arm in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and two supporters of the growing groundswell say they hope Washington soon will be taking note.

South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds has signed into law his state’s version of a Firearms Freedom Act that first was launched in Montana. It already is law there, in Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming, which took the unusual step of specifying criminal penalties – including both fines and jail time – for federal agents attempting to enforce a federal law on a “personal firearm” in the Cowboy State.

Netanyahu, Clinton Talk: Israeli Leader Plans Meeting In US Next Week

Hoping to defuse a fight between friends, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton agreed Thursday to meet next week in Washington to confront an embarrassing dispute over Israeli land claims.

The Obama administration's special envoy for Mideast peace, George Mitchell, prepared to return to the region for talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Netanyahu is coming to Washington to lay down the law, in no uncertain terms, about the impending US military strike against Iran.

Were I a betting person, I would almost be willing to bet that this visit has little to do with the settlement issue.

Australia: Electricity prices to rise by up to 64%

A NSW government rebate will be expanded to more than one million electricity consumers, to allay fears some families will be left in the dark by the state's largest-ever electricity price increases.

Electricity bills in NSW will soar by up to a total of 64 per cent over the next three years, with the federal government's proposed carbon pollution reduction scheme (CPRS) and rising network infrastructure costs largely to blame.

The outcome has sparked fears other states and territories could be similarly affected if the CPRS goes ahead in 20011/12 as planned.

Mammograms cause 7,000 women to receive false positives each year in the UK

Controversy over the legitimacy of mammography has been heating up worldwide as increasing numbers of medical professionals, industry watchdogs, consumer advocates, and others are recognizing that mammography is failing to achieve what it was intended to do. Not only does it improperly detect cancer cells, but it often subjects women to needless treatments that end up causing them more harm than good.

Conservative Debbie Schlussel Outs Hannity's "Scam"

The conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel deserves a fair hearing on this one, and respect from the progressive community. It's the rare conservative these days who will follow the actual facts where they lead, and speak the truth even when it is inconvenient to the movement or to his or her self interest.

She has come right out and called Sean Hannity's "Freedom Alliance" and their "Freedom Concerts" a "scam," raising money that is mostly spent on luxury travel and personal perks, with only a small portion going to help the wounded veterans and their families who are the supposed beneficiaries of FA's "Freedom Concerts."

'Pension tsunami' threatens schools

School officials have known for years that payments into the Public School Employees' Retirement System would be increasing.

But only recently has the so-called "pension tsunami" hit home as districts prepare their 2010-11 budgets.

The bottom line: Pennsylvania and its public schools are facing a financial nightmare of historic proportions.

And taxpayers are caught in the middle of it all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the US Federal Government, by giving tax credits to corporations to move high paying jobs off shore, and by deregulating Wall Street, bears the sole blame for the present disaster.

Billionaires and Mega-Corporations Behind Immense Land Grab in Africa

The experience of Nyikaw Ochalla, an indigenous Anuak from the Gambella region of Ethiopia now living in Britain but who is in regular contact with farmers in his region, is typical. He said: "All of the land in the Gambella region is utilised. Each community has and looks after its own territory and the rivers and farmlands within it. It is a myth propagated by the government and investors to say that there is waste land or land that is not utilised in Gambella.

"The foreign companies are arriving in large numbers, depriving people of land they have used for centuries. There is no consultation with the indigenous population. The deals are done secretly. The only thing the local people see is people coming with lots of tractors to invade their lands."

A Slimy Friend

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd’s chief counsel in 2008 traded stock in Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo & Co., American International Group Inc. and other rescued companies as the panel considered legislation to address the credit crisis, according to her financial disclosure form filed with the Senate.

Amy Friend, 51, who is now leading the panel’s effort to write a bill overhauling Wall Street regulations, bought $1,000- to-$15,000 stakes in four banks, weeks after Dodd hired her in January 2008, the form shows. She also owned shares of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG and other insurance firms, according to the disclosure document, which she signed on June 5, 2009.

Canadian Dollar rises sharply after inflation data

The Canadian dollar rose sharply on Friday after data showed Canada's annual core inflation rate unexpectedly rose in February, increasing pressure on the Bank of Canada to raise interest rates.

The Canadian dollar hit a session high of C$1.0100 or 99.01 U.S. cents, up from about C$1.0168, or 98.35 U.S. cents just before the report.

Hezbollah: Iran strike to ignite Mideast

Violence could spread across the Middle East with Israel paying a "heavy price" if it launched military action against Iran, the deputy leader of Hezbollah said on Thursday.

"Israel or the United States cannot just bomb Iran and (expect) things to continue normally," Sheikh Naim Qassem told Reuters. "Any attack on Iran could ignite the whole region and the assailant will pay a heavy price whether it's Israel or the United States."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, such an attack could well signal the beginning of World War III, involving both China and Russia on the side of Iran.

And both those countries have nukes.

CLIMATEGATE - Freaking Amazing

Seriously? I love how the author says “it’s definitive.” If the Bush White House had gotten all the same groups together 8 years ago to say that Islamic terrorism was the greatest threat ever faced by every Federal Agency, would that have been “definitive” too? (In fact, exactly this happened, as every department made a pitch for why they needed new security funds).

CLIMATEGATE - Carbon market chaos strikes again

The Hungarian Government, the cheeky sods, figured out that if CERs were issued by the UN (and not the EU), they could use them to write off the obligations of some Hungarian companies, and then, apparently, sell them again, so others could use them to write off their obligations, too.

It’s like reselling a three-course meal after it’s been eaten.

When confronted, the Hungarian Government claimed the used CERs were only sold to non-European investors. (So that makes it alright then? Someone outside Europe wasted money?)

Except that, as things do in a “free” market, the used CERs turned up in the EU market anyway, and eventually someone noticed.

PENTHOUSE - An Inconvenient Fraud?

Al Gore and his pals in the science establishment want us to totally change our lives because of a theory that might not even be true. Have the sacred cows of global warming been gored beyond repair?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, before you get on my case for linking to PENTHOUSE, I would like to remind everyone that way back in 1995, Sally Denton and Roger Morris wrote an article for the Washington Post based on surviving papers from assassinated Iran-Contra pilot Barry Seal, entitled "The Crimes of Mena."

This article detailed the evidence of government-sanctioned drug running that linked to three Presidents, Reagan, Bush Sr. and Clinton.

After having cleared the legal department for all possible questions of inaccurate statements, the article was scheduled for publication when just as the presses were set to roll, Washington Post Managing Editor Bob Kaiser (Like George Bush, a member of the infamous "Skull & Bones Fraternity), killed the article without explanation. Bob Kaiser refused to even meet with Sally Denton and Roger Morris, hiding in his office while his secretary made excuses.

In the end, it was PENTHOUSE magazine that had the courage to run the story that the Washington Post, the same Washington Post that did not hesitate to bring down Richard Nixon, feared to touch.

PENTHOUSE does it again.

After weeks of provocative war mongering moves, such as opening a synagogue at Al Aqsa Mosque, refusing to let Muslim enter Al Aqsa Mosque, ethnically cleansing Muslims from their homes in East Jerusalem, announcing more land grabbing settlements of close to 2 thousand new psychotic settlers, and generally poking sticks and attempting to instigate fights with Muslims, Israel is today rejoicing, their work has now paid off.

Today a small rocket was fired into Israel (by a handful of dissidents) and a Thai agricultural worker died as a result, this is very sad for the innocent man, however it is not a reason to once again bomb thousands of innocent Gazan civlians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Personally I think that rocket was fired by Israeli collaborators.

JINSA - Arab States Lose Faith in the United States Over Lack of Action on Iran, Administration Blames Israel

The briefers reported that there was a growing perception among Arab leaders that the U.S. was incapable of standing up to Israel, that CENTCOM's mostly Arab constituency was losing faith in American promises, that Israeli intransigence on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was jeopardizing U.S. standing in the region, and that [U.S. envoy and former Senator George] Mitchell himself was (as a senior Pentagon officer later bluntly described it) "too old, too slow ... and too late."

Anti-Defamation League Goes After Gen. Petraeus

The Anti-Defamation League takes the unexpected step of criticizing Gen. David Petraeus, the widely respected commander of U.S. troops in the Middle East and South Asia, for his recent comments to the Senate Armed Services Committee that lack of progress on Israeli-Palestinian peace sets the “strategic context” for U.S. security fortunes in the region. “Gen. Petraeus has simply erred in linking the challenges faced by the U.S. and coalition forces in the region to a solution of the Israeli-Arab conflict, and blaming extremist activities on the absence of peace and the perceived U.S. favoritism for Israel,” the ADL’s Abraham Foxman says in a just-released statement. “This linkage is dangerous and counterproductive.”

If anyone has a problem with naked breast, and I don't know anybody who does except the religious wackos (who should kindly shut the heck up until they deal with the child molestation going on in the choir loft!), they can LOOK THE OTHER WAY!

Wilkerson: We can bomb Iran for 70 days around the clock

Meanwhile, as the U.S. is pushing for sanctions to hinder Iran's nuclear programme, reports say Washington is already gearing up for an attack. A Scottish newspaper, The Sunday Herald, says hundreds of powerful bunker-buster bombs are being shipped to a military base on the British Garcia island, in the Indian Ocean. It was also used by the U.S. for strikes against Iraq during the 1993 and 2003 Gulf wars. Some experts say American bombers would be capable of destroying around ten thousand targets in Iran, in just a few hours. But former chief of staff to Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson, says that any action would spell disaster for the U.S. military machine.

NYS Film Tax Credit Key Economic Driver: Comptroller

New York state's film tax credit has generated about $7 billion in economic activity since 2004 and become a key economic driver, the state's comptroller said on Tuesday.

Lawmakers are considering extending the program through 2015 to help New York compete with similar tax incentives on offer in 42 other U.S. states, Washington D.C. and 11 Canadian provinces, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said in a statement.

"There's also an intrinsic added value that's difficult to measure but very real," he said. "Visitors from all over the world come to New York because of the iconic movies and TV shows shot here."

More States Delay Income Tax Refunds

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bankers created a system to draw all the money out of the general population and put it in their own pockets. As a society, we face not a wealth crisis but a liquidity crisis.

Obama, as President, could solve the problem overnight by calling the Treasury across the street and order them to issue new currency as Lincoln and Kennedy did. That he has not I think proves his loyalties are not with the ordinary American people but with the private bankers. Alex Jones is correct; the economic ruin of our nation is an intentional act of treason by the government. No terrorists could have ever hoped to have inflicted as much damage on the United States as the last two Presidents.

Questions Swirl Around U.N.'s Climate Auditors

Acknowledging the rising tide of public skepticism toward global warming, the United Nations announced on March 10 that the IAC would act as an independent reviewer for its climate-science arm, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But a week later, the IAC remains a mystery, and it still hasn't explained who will be on the review panel or how the panel will operate.

And if it knows, it isn't saying. "The IAC expects to begin its IPCC review shortly and issue a report by August 31. There is no other statement," Anne Muller, program coordinator at the IAC, told FoxNews.com.

Weather balloon data backs up missing decline found in old magazine

Recall that the original “hide the decline” statement comes from the ClimateGate emails and refers to “hiding” the tree ring data that shows a decline in temperatures after 1960. It’s known as the “divergence problem” because tree rings diverge from the measured temperatures. But Frank shows that the peer reviewed data supports the original graphs and that measured temperature did decline from 1960 onwards, sharply. But in the GISS version of that time-period, temperatures from the cold 1970’s period were repeatedly “adjusted” years after the event, and progressively got warmer.

Blackstone President Throwing Swank Party For Nancy Pelosi

The NYPost is reporting that Blackstone's president, Tony James, is throwing a party at his house for Nancy Pelosi.

Their sources tell the Post that the party is meant to encourage Pelosi to vote against the proposed tax rate increase on carried interest, the profits people make on money they have invested.

Raising taxes on carried interest is a hot topic because carried interests isn't really income, but some people want to tax it as if it were.

Currently carried interest is taxed at 15%. The proposed tax rate for carried interest is the same as the income tax rate, 35%.

Irish Catholic church paid child sex abuse victim to keep quiet

The settlement between the archdiocese of Derry and the young woman, who was eight when the abuse began, contained a silence clause preventing her from discussing the case.

Her ordeal began in 1979 and lasted for a decade before she revealed at her 18th birthday party that she had been repeatedly abused by the priest.

The abuse began after he was invited into the family home by her parents, who had no idea he was a child abuser. He told the girl that God would punish her if she spoke out about her ordeal.

Israeli fighter jets have bombarded at least two sites in the Gaza Strip shortly after a Thai agricultural worker was killed when a rocket fired from the besieged coastal enclave struck the northern Negev.

The eyewitnesses said Israeli F-16 fighter jets targeted an open area north of the Gaza City. The warplanes also fired missiles at an open area in the central Gaza Strip.

One of the warplanes broke the sound barrier in the skies of northern and central Gaza Strip, causing panic through the crowd, especially women and children.

Bibi’s Tense Time-Out

The president and his inner circle are appalled at Israel’s self-absorption and its failure to notice that America is not only protecting Israel from Iran, fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also dealing with a miasma of horrible problems at home. And Israel insults the Obama administration over a domestic zoning issue that has nothing to do with its security?

“That’s not how you treat your best friend,” said one Obama official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, the zoning issue; a tempest in a teapot, or a molehill amplified into a huge mountain for political theater.

I am not excusing Israel's violation of International Law or continuing defiance of the United Nations, it is just that after all the settlements already built, the kerfuffle over this latest one seems obviously promoted in the media.

Which is why I am convinced that this is indeed a staged political theater piece for the express purpose of creating the illusion of a US / Israeli political divide to give Israel deniability over the coming US attack on Iran.

Iran’s Natural Gas Riches: US Knife to the Heart of World Future Energy

What the CNPC-Iranian partnership shows is that natural gas is the bigger prize that will be pivotal to the world economy, and specifically the dual flow of this fuel eastwards and westwards from Central Asia to Europe and China.

Within the Middle East, Iran is the undisputed top holder of gas reserves. Its South Pars gas field is the world's largest. If converted to barrel-of-oil equivalents, Iran's South Pars would dwarf the reserves of Saudi Arabia's giant Ghawar oilfield. The latter is the world's largest oilfield and since it came into operation in 1948, Ghawar has effectively been the world's beating heart for raw energy supply. In the soon-to-come era of natural gas dominance over oil, Iran will oust Saudi Arabia as the world's beating heart for energy.

URGENT APPEAL: Illegal detention of children inside Israel

On or about 8 March 2010, Israeli authorities transferred at least seven Palestinian children from Ofer Prison, in the West Bank, to Rimonim Prison, inside Israel. This decision occurred after lawyers for DCI-Palestine informed Ofer military court that children were being detained illegally with adult detainees inside Ofer prison. However, the response of the Israeli authorities to transfer the children to Israel amounts to a further contravention of international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the UN had any credibility at all in terms of world leadership, they would halt the heinous Israeli practice of imprisoning children.

Of course, they can't, so they don't. When it comes to Israel, the UN can only be characterized as thoroughly incompetent, and a total embarrassment.

Texas Man Accused of Disabling 100 Cars Over Internet

A man fired from a Texas auto dealership used an Internet service to remotely disable ignitions and set off car horns of more than 100 vehicles sold at his old workplace, police said Wednesday.

The Texas Auto Center dealership in Austin installs GPS devices that can prevent cars from starting. The system is used to repossess cars when buyers are overdue on payments, said Jeremy Norton, a controller at the dealership where Ramos-Lopez worked. Car horns can be activated when repo agents go to collect vehicles and believe the owners are hiding them.

It says that after the president chooses to "declare a cybersecurity emergency," he can activate a "response and restoration plan" involving networks owned and operated by the private sector. In an attempt to limit criticism, instead of spelling out the plan's details, the latest draft simply says that it must be developed by the White House in advance.

Roberts: Expect a False Flag Terror Attack To Precede Invasion Of Iran

The next step will be a staged “terrorist attack,” a “false flag” operation as per Operation Northwoods, for which Iran will be blamed. As Iran and its leadership have already been demonized, the “false flag” attack will suffice to obtain US and European public support for bombing Iran. The bombing will include more than the nuclear facilities and will continue until the Iranians agree to regime change and the installation of a puppet government. The corrupt American media will present the new puppet as “freedom and democracy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, this may well occur.

However, there are a couple of 6,000 lb gorillas, sitting on the Steinway, which no one wants to talk about.

Those are, China and Russia, respectively.

If there is an attack against Iran by the US, Russia and/ or China (one of Iran's biggest trading partners) may well intervene on the side of Iran.

Both countries have nukes.

Outrage as Tom Hanks brands war veterans 'racist' after filming The Pacific

The dual Oscar-winner went further in Time magazine."Back in World War II, we viewed the Japanese as 'yellow, slant-eyed dogs' that believed in different gods," he said.

"They were out to kill us because our way of living was different.

"We, in turn, wanted to annihilate them because they were different.

"Does that sound familiar, by any chance, to what's going on today?"

Webmaster's Commentary:

As a vote approaches on Obama and Pelosi’s government takeover of healthcare, Code Red is now considering two supposedly “undecided” California Democrats, Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa, to now be “yes” votes.

The U.S. Department of Interior announced yesterday that it is increasing water allocations for the Central Valley of California, a region that depends on these water allocations to support local agriculture and jobs. The region has recently been starved for water and as a result unemployment has soared. Not surprisingly, Cardoza and Costa had a hand in the announcement:

Soaring IED attacks in Afghanistan stymie U.S. counteroffensive

Taliban fighters more than doubled the number of homemade bombs they used against U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan last year, relying on explosives that are often far more primitive than the ones used in Iraq.

The embrace of a low-tech approach by Taliban-trained bombmakers -- they are building improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, out of fertilizer and diesel fuel -- has stymied a $17 billion U.S. counteroffensive against the devices in Iraq and Afghanistan, military officials say. Electronic scanners or jammers, which were commonly deployed in Iraq, can detect only bombs with metal parts or circuitry.

Look your victims in the eyes: this is Iran, these are Iranians to be killed in the next US war

If you don’t know that US political and media “leaders” lie by omission that the US overthrew Iran’s democracy from 1953 to 1979 to install an oil-friendly dictator, and that the US supplied and directly aided the invasion of Iran from 1980 to 1988 to reinstall an oil-friendly dictator, continue here. These acts killed up to a million Iranians. This history is the proper context to consider lying US rhetoric for war with Iran.

U.S. to pursue 'aggressive' Iran sanctions, Obama vows

President Barack Obama said on Wednesday the United States would pursue "aggressive sanctions" to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon that could potentially spark a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

US envoy 'due in Middle East on March 21'

US Middle East envoy George Mitchell will arrive in the region on Sunday for a visit that had been delayed amid a row between Washington and Israel, a senior Palestinian official told AFP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, why is Mitchell even bothering to go?

Israel is intransigent, belligerent, continues killing and wounding more Palestinians by the day, and building in the occupied territories with impunity.

Envoy Mitchell, there is no reason for you to be going to Israel. Israel will, once again, as it did with Vice-President Biden, vomit in your face, and tell you it's raining.

Unless, of course, that little performance was all for show to appear to distance Israel from the US if and when the US attacks Iran, so that Israel is granted, at least on the surface, some kind of "plausible denyability".

Then, when Iran attacks Israel, Iran will be the bad guy, and we're off and running into World War III.

Is New Jersey protected from a storm like Katrina? Evidence suggests not. Because it borders the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware River, southern New Jersey is especially vulnerable to flooding and storm surges. Low lying areas along the Delaware Bay are protected by a little-known system of more than 35 earthen levees and tide gates originally constructed during Colonial times. This ancient flood control infrastructure is crumbling, and responsibility for maintenance is fragmented and uncoordinated.

Construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem to begin soon God willing !

According to the Vilna Gaon, one of the greatest sages of the 18th century on ”March 16, 2010, Israel will begin construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem….,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that there has already been a third temple.

The first Temple is the Temple built by David and Solomon, which is presumed to have existed even though there is no archaeological evidence to prove it. (The Pomegranate Staff ornament and the Jehoash Tablet once cited as physical proof of the First Temple have both been exposed as hoaxes). That temple is supposedly destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar.

The Second Temple was the one built by Zerubbabel following the Babylonian Captivity. That temple is eventually converted to the Roman Akva Fortress. When Pompey invades Judea, he finds the remains of the Second Temple to be empty.

The Third Temple was built by Herod the Great in an attempt to ingratiate himself with his Jewish subjects. The Temple Mount is enlarged, leveled, and a completely new Temple constructed on the foundation of the old Roman Fortress.

This Temple of Herod is declared the Third Temple at the time, but is destroyed by Hadrian in 136 who then builds a Temple of Jupiter and statue of himself on the spot.

Because none of the religious prophecies connected to the creation of the Third Temple actually materialized before its destruction (and a revolt to try to retake the mount and start a third temple failed), the Jewish priests simply declared Herod's Temple had only been a "rebuild" of the Second Temple, even though the construction, lasting over 40 years, was a complete replacement from the ground up.

By this swindle the priests were able to keep leading their flocks with wonderful prophecies about what the erecting of the Third Temple would bring, not unlike the various religious groups that predict the end of the world, then when the prediction fails, simply change the numbers and go back to business as usual.

But the fact is that, if you stipulate that David and Solomon's Temple really did exist, then Israel has already had their three temples.

As the mainstream media fill our eyes and ears with strange claims about scientific "discoveries" – claims that seem to constantly serve the interests of a government that is clearly bent on enslaving us, why are most of our scientists not heard?

In addition to moving Mr. Pinto and his family to Beijing in January, Applied Materials, whose headquarters are in Santa Clara, Calif., has just built its newest and largest research labs here. Last week, it even held its annual shareholders’ meeting in Xi’an.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think we are seeing the start of a trend here, and one which will continue as this country continues to bankrupt itself.

Insurers score big win as parliamentarian blocks rate hike watchdog

A Democrat's proposal to create a government watchdog board which would vet insurance premium hikes is likely off the table after the Senate parliamentarian ruled that the proposal isn't suitable to be added in reconciliation, the budget measure Democrats are using to move health care reform forward in the Senate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Health insurers have to be salivating at this point about all the goodies waiting for them in this alleged "health care" bill, which has absolutely nothing to do with American citizens' health.

Genocide in the name of the environment is still genocide

In order to confirm their pre-conceived notions of their own self-worth, Galton and his friends started a new field of inquiry called eugenics. Unsurprisingly, it concluded that the rich and powerful were rich and powerful because they were genetically superior, and it offered a simple solution for improving the lot of humanity: make sure that the affluent upper classes breed as much as possible (preferably within their own families, in order to preserve their superior stock), and make sure the lower classes breed as little as possible.

PROPAGANDA ALERT - First deadly rocket in year hits Israel

Palestinian militants fired a rocket from Gaza into Israel Thursday, killing a Thai farm worker, while the European Union's foreign affairs chief was visiting the Hamas-controlled enclave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nobody knows who really fired the rocket, but isn't it wonderfully convenient for Israel that the rocket killed a (non-Israeli) civilian while the EU official was there to see?

FUCK YOU DENNIS KUCINICH- What did you REALLY GET for Selling us out, you piece of shit?

Dennis took a plane ride with Obama and sold us out. Threw us right the fuck under the bus. He sold us out after talking to Obama and Pelosi. He sold us out because he was told that without his support other progressives would also hold out and Pelosi would have to use the “deem and pass” trick to force Obamacare on the American people. That action would harm her rep and Obama’s rep. So he flipped his vote without getting a goddamn thing in exchange.

FLASHBACK - Art Students in WTC Connected to Israeli Intelligence Service

So why is all this information about an innocent art stunt so important, aside from the fact that these individuals had WTC construction passes in 2000 before releasing their book in August of 2001? Because according to the DEA report on the investigation into a separate story of art students in the country penetrating military bases, government agencies and so fourth as a part of a spy ring, 2 names show up in the arrests of over 140 spies that sparked interest for me.

6 Subtle Ways The News Media Disguises Bullshit As Fact

"Police Insist: When Huskies Win, There's More Trouble." The "Huskies" here are the local college football team, if you were wondering, and headline seems to say that when they win, crime goes up. Holy shit! Better put a stop to that!

The first hint that the headline might not be accurate comes in paragraph four (that "the stats may not necessarily bear it out") and the information that actually completely contradicts the headline's claim doesn't pop up until freaking paragraph eight (that this very paper did an analysis that showed no increase in police calls on game day, whether the team wins or not).

That's right; without changing a word of the article, the paper could just as easily have run the headline as, "Study Shows No Increase In Huskies Violence."
