Not your mother's Girl Scouts
Date: 3/12/2010 8:42:50 AM
Warning: explicit content!
Here is the longstanding Girl Scout oath: "On my honor, I will try: to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people at all times, to obey the Girl Scout laws."
Well, the new and improved World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a panel at the UN this week. The first thing organizers did was kick all the adults out of the room so that Planned Parenthood could distribute - to adolescent girls, mind you - a brochure entitled, "Healthy, Happy and Hot."
The brochure includes graphic and explicit sexual details, and promotes every kind of casual sex.

The Most Bizarro Health "Reform" Arugment: ObamaCare Will Cut the Deficit

Anyone who claims that price controls are going to "cut" government spending is not an economist, as real economists understand the price system, how it works, and what happens when government intervenes into market exchanges. That someone of Krugman's stature would spend his political capital on a bogus mess called ObamaCare tells me that the guy is a political operative and nothing else.

Bailout deal for Greece? Just rumors!!!

It looks like these FALSE RUMORS of a bailout are being driven by speculators - and particularly Goldman Sachs - in an effort to PROP UP THE EURO against the US dollar. Greece has said they don’t want or need a bailout. Germany has said that Greece needs to take care of its own problems and Germany won’t jump in and give them any money. Nothing has changed in the positions of Greece or Germany throughout this whole matter.

It was the first time a GM crop had been authorised for cultivation in 13 years. But, now the long moratorium has been broken, similar approvals for others are expected rapidly to follow.

Spiegel: 2009 swine flu pandemic a boost for Big Pharma

Those who suspected a money- and greed-driven conspiracy behind the 2009 swine flu outbreak - declared a pandemic by overzealous WHO officials and their advisers from within the industry - are being proven right by recent revelations in Der Spiegel.

The article Reconstruction of a Mass Hysteria - The Swine Flu Panic of 2009 in Spiegel Online of March 12 will hopefully not be the last one to show that the so-called pandemic of 2009 was engineered...

There's also every indication that there was at least one police agent in the crowd at the Vancouver Olympics protest.

“He was pushing forward and forcing people into the police basically,” Walia said on her cellphone from the Downtown Eastside. “From past experience, when someone falls into a police officer, they pick you up for assault.”

While the man appeared to be a photojournalist, he refused to identify his media affiliation when asked by protesters around him. He also remained silent as activists accused him of being a police officer. After the crowd chanted, “I smell bacon, I smell pork”, the man accepted an offer by officers to leave through the police line.

This used to be a mainly Democratic party phenomenon, but over the last couple of decades it’s increasingly being done by Republicans also, especially the neocons and the evangelicals.

The thing that confuses me is this: Why?

Israeli Historian: Israel Could Find Itself Forced To Wipe Out Europe

Noted Israeli military historian Martin Karfeld stated that Israel could find itself one day forced to exterminate the European continent using all kinds of weapons including its nuclear arsenal if it felt its demise neared, stressing that Israel also considers Europe a hostile target.

“We have hundreds of nuclear warheads and missiles that can reach different targets in the heart of the European continent, including beyond the borders of Rome, the Italian capital,” Karfeld said, adding that most of the European capitals would become preferred targets for the Israeli air force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To characterize this man as barking mad is to completely ignore the very real danger of Israeli nuclear weapons, not only to its neighbors in the Middle East but the world, as well as to ignore the very real possibility of an Israeli genocide/diaspora against the Palestinians currently living in East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza.

States Freezing Tax Refunds

Residents eager to get their state tax refunds may have a long wait this year: The recession has tied up cash and caused officials in half a dozen states to consider freezing refunds, in one case for as long as five months.

States from New York to Hawaii that have been hard-hit by the economic downturn say they have either delayed refunds or are considering doing so because of budget shortfalls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isn't that kind of a retro-active tax increase? Without legislative approval? And with the dollar collapsing, doesn't delaying the tax refunds cause the refunds to be worth less in real purchasing power?

Isn't it time to end the wars, end the propping up of Wall Street, end the propping up of Israel, and start spending US Tax Dollars on the US Taxpayer??????

ADL: US Criticism of Israel troubling

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) says it is shocked by the harsh public criticism recently directed at Israel by the US Administration.

"We are shocked and stunned at the Administration’s tone and public dressing down of Israel on the issue of future building in Jerusalem," Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to ADL National Director, Abraham H. Foxman: sir, it is the American people are "shocked and stunned" as to the massive economic and military aid given to Israel over all these years, when Israel consistently spits in our faces, and tells us it's raining when it comes to any approach toward a just and lasting peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

That price tag amounts to about 3 trillion dollars per year (yes, with a t), while homeless vets sleep in our streets, and our infrastructure crumbles here in the US.

Under the Symington Amendment, it is illegal for the US to provide any aid whatsoever to any country which has nuclear weapons but refuses to sign the NNPT, and have their weapons inspected.

So we, sir, are "shocked and stunned" that Israel, which does have nukes and refuses to sign the NNPT, or have their facilities inspected by the IAEA, continues to get trillions in American aid annually.

Social Security to start cashing Uncle Sam's IOUs

Sounds like a good time to start tapping the nest egg. Too bad the federal government already spent that money over the years on other programs, preferring to borrow from Social Security rather than foreign creditors. In return, the Treasury Department issued a stack of IOUs — in the form of Treasury bonds — which are kept in a nondescript office building just down the street from Parkersburg's municipal offices.

Now the government will have to borrow even more money, much of it abroad, to start paying back the IOUs, and the timing couldn't be worse. The government is projected to post a record $1.5 trillion budget deficit this year, followed by trillion dollar deficits for years to come.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in the 1990s, I pointed out this was happening and that it would not end well for the taxpayer. And I recall that the very same paid internet shills who today insist the world really is getting warmer and that Saddam really did have nuclear weapons were back then saying that it really was perfectly okay for Clinton to loot Social Security to make up his "budget surplus."

In recent months there have been many cases in which minors aged 12-15 from Silwan, in East Jerusalem, were arrested in the middle of the night by police officers and Israel Security Agency agents accompanied by armed border policemen. The minors were taken out of their beds and brought to the police station in the Russian Compound, in West Jerusalem. Some of them were brought handcuffed, and none of the parents were allowed to accompany them. At the station, the minors were interrogated on suspicion of stone throwing. According to testimonies that some of them gave to B’Tselem, the interrogators beat and threatened them.

Yad Vashem ramping up effort to combat Holocaust denial

To demonstrate the creeping impact of Holocaust denial, Ephraim Kaye urges a simple Google search. Type in the word “Holocaust” and see what pops up.

“Of the first 60 hits, a third are of Holocaust deniers,” Kaye says. “It’s out there and we cannot stop it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma." -- Michael Rivero

The fact is that conspiracies to lie to the public to trick them into supporting a political agenda not only exist, they are common everyday occurrences whether it is Global Warming or Saddam's "Nooks."

At the close of World War 2 the Zionists faced a formidable public relations problem. The world had just united against Hitler on the principle that one nation doe snot have a right to simply march into another nation and steal if for their own use.

And yet that is exact;y what the founders of Israel were planning to do, to match into Palestine and steal it for Israel.

The Zionists' task was to convince the world that what Germany could not be allowed to do to Poland, Israel must be allowed to do to Palestine. The Zionists needed a public relations tool powerful enough to trick the rest of the world into abandoning the very principles they had spent so much blood and gold on.

So, the slave-labor camps of the Nazis were propagandized into death camps; their enslaved populations portrayed as primarily Jewish, delousing became gassing, and the entire grizzly horror story decorated with hoaxes about soap made from human fat, lampshades made from human skin, mysterious electrical rays that caused bodies to vanish, and so forth. Rudolph Hoess was beaten into "confessing" how Jews were deliberately exterminated at Camp Walzcak.

So the world, ignoring Hitler's warning about falling for the "Big Lie", stood hack and allowed Israel to do to Palestine what Hitler was crushed for doing to Poland and France, etc. Indeed Israel's crimes against the Palestinians continue to this very day, protected from the world's condemnation by endless Hollywood images of the orthodox tale of WW2.

But time makes ancient truth uncouth. We know that Ramses II lied when he carved his temples to show a victory over the Hittites at Kadesh. We know that JBL lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin. We know Bush lied about Saddam's 'nooks." We know IPCC and CRU are lying about human-caused global warming.

The great lies of history rarely survive for very long outside their own time.

Laboratory tests show the soap supposedly made from human fat contains very little fat, and that it came from pigs (a major embarrassment for all those graveyards that gave bars of soap funerals). Lab test showed the lampshades were made from goats. The shrunken heads displayed as trophies made by death camp commanders turned out to be souvenirs from South America totally unrelated to Hitler's time. There was no magic electrical machine that made bodies vanish. Ground penetrating radar shows no mass graves at Treblinka. Zyklon-B is an insecticide. The crematorium at Auschwitz was built AFTER the war to deal with the still-raging Typhus epidemics which were the real cause of the death and emaciation at the German camps. And the Camp Walczak testified to by Hoess never existed.

Although we are brainwashed from birth to always tell the truth, the reality is that we live in an age of lies told by our leaders to control us, loot us, molest our children, and then send them off to die in pointless wars of conquest.

Amy Holmes Plays Apologist for Bush Torture Lawyers

Now, conservatives on both sides of the Liz Cheney "Al Qaeda 7" smear of the Obama Justice Department have entered Seinfeld's Bizarro World where the polar opposite of truth reigns. For the likes of David Brooks, Marc Thiessen and Amy Holmes, the Obama DOJ lawyers who defended the U.S. Constitution are no different than the Bush torture team that undermined it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Telepimping for Torture" poses a number of problems for this country's moral compass and image, problems which Amy Holmes, with her considerable intelligence, recognizes, but refuses to address, so I will.

1. The institutionalization of torture by the US means that, for all practical intents and purposes, we have abandoned every human rights accord to which the US has ever been a signatory, including the Geneva Convention.

From the inception of this country during the Revolutionary War, the concept of the use of torture was an anathema to the founding fathers, particularly George Washington.

Through the institutionalization of torture, this country has fallen off a moral cliff, and the only way to right that is to prosecute everyone, at the highest level in this government, who ever signed off on torture to the fullest extent of the law.

2. As we have understood from the times of the Catholic Inquisition, torture only gets the tortured person to say what the torturers want to hear to get the torture to stop. What is desired by the torturers is a pre-determined "confession" though which they can justify their use of torture.

3. Any government official of this country or private citizen can never again talk about freedom, human rights, and human dignity with a straight face when, while we torture, we observe those values in the breach, not in the observance of those values. We, as a nation, have become a nation of hypocrites when we torture.

4. In institutionalizing torture, the US gives "carte blanch" for any military or intelligence operative of a hostile country to do the same to our military or civilians.

Chew on that last one for a while, will you, particularly if you have any family or friends actively serving in any part of the US military.

Corporate entity becomes ‘candidate’, kicks off bid for Congress

The same is true of other members of the Institute. In my many years of acquaintance with them, I have never heard any of them say anything that would strike an unprejudiced listener as unreasonable or bigoted.

Holocaust Memorials DEFACED With Anti-Semitic Slurs

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And right on time, JUST when Israel needs to pump sympathy and cry "anti-Semitism" as the EU endorses the Goldstone Report and the US dares express anger with Israel for Israel's humiliation of Joe Biden. A leaked strategy paper detailing Israel's plan to counter the growing public relations crisis and the boycott/divestment going on was to USE THE COVER OF ANTISEMITISM. And sure enough, what better way to buiold sympathy for Israel than to drag out the swastikas yet again!

How do we know this is yet another hate crime hoax? Well, mostly because when the painters of swastika get caught, they turn out to be Jewish, playing for sympathy.

But more to the point, nobody cares about the @#$%ing swastika any more except Israel! The Nazis are dead and gone; their regalia little more than curios and museum pieces collecting dist in dark corners. Only Israel still attaches any importance to Swastikas; they have become Israel's trademarked logo for the "You should feel sorry for us while we do to Gaza exactly what the Nazis did to Warsaw" advertising campaign!

It is predictable and inevitable. Every time Israel's actions get it into political trouble. out come the swastikas again, to trick the world back into feeling sorry for tiny little helpless nuclear-armed and very rich on YOUR tax dollars Israel, trembling in fear of attack from the people whose homes Israel steals every single day and whose children wither under the rain of white phosphorus.

Middle Class Americans Losing Financial Ground on Retirement – As Stock Market Rebounds more Middle Class Americans Have Less Money and Fewer Jobs. How is Health Care Spending Boosting GDP a Good Thing?

As more and more data is released on this Great Recession it is becoming abundantly clear that we have two tracks people are following. On one track where most travel, we have middle class Americans dealing with the highest unemployment in a generation while seeing their net worth dissolve. On the other side of the road, the one lane highway for the tiny percent of the extremely wealthy, we see an extraordinary jump in wealth since the depth of the crisis in March of 2009 when the S&P 500 touched that unholy number of 666. It must seem like a cruel joke that with the stock market being up nearly 70 percent since that low point in 2009, the vast majority of Americans are wondering why they don’t feel much of that rally when they open their wallets.

Or is there a plan to slowly allow the truth to become known even to the most 'head in the sand' Americans who are scared of the facts? And to what purpose? The collapse of the US and a solution imposed that may involve something along the lines of a world government to keep this from ever happening again?

They are building a New World Order where they have complete control over everyone and they will own everything. They control the world's media and own the central banks in almost every country. They use these central banks to create paper money from nothing and lend it to governments and individuals and charge interest on the new money they created.

The base of the New World Orders power is the extreme wealth that they have been able to obtain by a monopoly of credit.

They have created a world wide banking system in which they can create money from nothing and lend it to governments and individuals.

Michael Parenti -- Myth of Under Development!

The stupendous fortunes that were-and still are being extracted by the European and North American investors should remind us that there are very few really poor nations in what today is commonly called the Third World. Brazil is rich; Indonesia is rich; and so are the Philippines, Chile, Bolivia, Zaire, Mexico, India, and Malaysia. Only the people are poor. Of course in some areas, as in parts of Africa south of the Sahara, the land has been so ruthlessly plundered that it too is now impoverished, making life all the more desperate for its inhabitants.
... the Third World is not "underdeveloped" but overexploited.

$650 Million Payout Proves Government Conspired To Lie About 9/11

The financial system in America is on the edge of default

The financial system in America is on the edge of default. A recent poll found that 92% of those surveyed wanted to unseat their current representative or Senator in Washington and only 21% believed that government enjoyed the consent of the governed. It’s very obvious people are not happy with the political, economic and financial situation presently. Eighty percent believe that government is enmeshed in partisan infighting. Not only between parties, but within parties as well. Politicians are very aware of these numbers and are frantic to get reelected. The public has recoiled in disgust. People are demanding that the power of government be curbed. People are sick and tired of paid off corrupt politicians, more than half of whom have been in office for more than ten years.

Iceland, the Mouse that Roared

We as a society need to start producing again. We need to start competing with others who wish to produce. This is how wealth is created. The more wealth we create, the more prosperous we all become. For a few decades now, we have tried to maintain our lifestyles with a service economy. It didn´t work. Now the economy is collapsing worldwide. Now the banks are hoarding that which they created and are trying to claim the real wealth that should be owned by private sovereigns. We need to ask ourselves, can we be proactive and stop this before we wake up and find ourselves in the same boat as Iceland? If not, will we simply say no and refuse to pay as they did, or will we allow our society to break down and resort to violence as the Greeks?

Nasa searching for 'Nemesis,' Sun's Deadly Twin, Blamed for Comets on Collision Course

The star, also known as Nemesis, is five times the size of Jupiter and could be to blame for the impact that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. The bombardment of icy missiles is being blamed by some scientists for mass extinctions of life that they say happen every 26 million years.

Nemesis is predicted to lie at a distance equal to 25,000 times that of the Earth from the Sun, or a third of a light-year.... it is up to five times the size of Jupiter or 7,000 times the size of Earth.

He said: "There is statistically significant evidence that this concentration of comets could be caused by a companion to the Sun."

Nasa scientists are searching for an invisible 'Death Star' that circles the Sun, which catapults potentially catastrophic comets at the Earth

US ponders denying Israel arms needed for Iran war

During a recent visit to Washington, Barak had reportedly criticized his hosts for stalling the delivery of the military items for the past three months, during which Israel was making preparations for a strike on Iran's nuclear infrastructure.

It is absolutely essential for these items to reach Israel before a military flare-up occurred in the region, Barak said, to such extent that if they could not be supplied to Israel at short notice, they should at least be held ready in emergency stores in US bases in the Negev desert in Israel.

Israel and America: Foolish tricks

Instead of embracing Mr Biden, Israel showed him the finger, choosing the very day of his visit to announce the construction of 1,600 new housing units in East Jerusalem. That counts as an in-your-face insult to a US administration that has demanded Israel freeze all settlement activity in the territories conquered in 1967, which include East Jerusalem. Little wonder that President Obama was said to be "incandescent with anger", spending 90 minutes on the phone to his deputy drafting a statement of condemnation rare for its ferocity.

Economic fascism: corporate-directed health care instead of physician-directed public option at cost

*hyperlinks and two videos live at source*

Three out of five Americans want universal health care, as do three out of five US physicians. If corporate media were to communicate the cost-benefit analyses accurately, those numbers would increase because these studies assert that Americans would save between $100 billion and $300 billion every year.

These savings would cover everyone in the US while saving each of the ~100 million US households $1,000 to $3,000 every year.

Concerns about an Oregon Department of Transportation employee who purchased several guns after being placed on leave prompted law enforcement across Southern Oregon to step in.

He was taken to Rogue Valley Medical Center for a mental-health evaluation.

Benedict's involvement 'shows extent of cover-ups'

Pope will struggle to survive abuse scandal

A depressing week for Pope Benedict dramatically escalated last night into an unprecedented papal crisis when he was directly implicated in a cover-up of a German paedophile priest when he was Cardinal Archbishop of Munich 30 years ago.

The latest revelations are so potentially damaging to the reputation of then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger that speculation was mounting last night that they could severely, perhaps even irreparably, damage his moral authority as Pope Benedict XVI.

US couple take lead on carbon trade by selling their first credit

The Wilsons began by getting rid of their son's heated water bed, turning off power to computers and televisions when not in use, changing to energy-efficient light bulbs, hang-drying their laundry and, finally, investing $58,000 (€42,000 £37,000) in a solar panel system - until they reduced their electricity bill to zero.

Then they signed up on the MyEmissionsExchange. com site to have their energy savings calculated. They found that they had already saved one tonne of carbon, which earned them a carbon credit. The exchange sold the credit for $21.50 to Molten Metal Equipment Innovations of Ohio, taking a 20 per cent commission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They spent $58,000 to get a credit worth $21.50, and the brokerage tool a 20% commission on that.

Bob Shallit: IRS visits Sacramento carwash in pursuit of 4 cents

It was every businessperson's nightmare.

Arriving at Harv's Metro Car Wash in midtown Wednesday afternoon were two dark-suited IRS agents demanding payment of delinquent taxes. "They were deadly serious, very aggressive, very condescending," says Harv's owner, Aaron Zeff.

The really odd part of this: The letter that was hand-delivered to Zeff's on-site manager showed the amount of money owed to the feds was ... 4 cents.

Inexplicably, penalties and taxes accruing on the debt – stemming from the 2006 tax year – were listed as $202.31, leaving Harv's with an obligation of $202.35.

Haitian president at White House: US military occupation to continue

Obama indicated during the press conference that the US military presence in Haiti would continue indefinitely, saying, "America’s commitment to Haiti’s recovery and reconstruction must endure and will endure." While some US troops have been withdrawn from the country, 10,000 remain in or near Haiti, half of them on the mainland, the other half stationed offshore.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is about arranging "sweetheart deals" for Haiti's national resources, and for continuing the sweatshop labor conditions in Haiti's factories.

And the actual horrendous living conditions which most of the Haitian people endure will never improve: this is by design.

Expecting a third Intifada

Observers in occupied Palestine are increasingly of the opinion that a fresh Intifada or uprising is in the offing as the Israeli authorities keep provoking Palestinians, including stepping up efforts to gain Jewish prayer rights at Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest shrine.

The Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has warned that provocative Israeli actions at Haram Al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) could trigger a religious war between Jews and Muslims. The organisation called on the world community to stop Israeli aggression before it was too late.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it may already be too late to stop the Israeli provocation which will, almost inevitably lead, to a third intifada.

Israel will never listen to the international community on this, because Israel wants territory, by any means necessary; not peace.

These provocations have been engineered to create the kind of reaction which will become the "excuse" to kill any Palestinians left standing in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza.

Three strikes and you’re out, Mr. Obama. Your government stands for preemptive killing and missile strikes on people living in countries with which America is not at war, lets torturers and torture enablers go free, and has asserted the right to assassinate its own citizens anywhere in the world based on secret evidence. Ronald Reagan once described his vision of America as a shining city on a hill. Over the past ten years the shining city has become the ultimate rogue nation, pumped up with power and hubris in spite of the clearly visible signs of decline and moving inexorably towards a catastrophic fall.

Census Data Not So Confidential After All

Yet widespread non-compliance, especially among those most likely to be discriminated against by a majority, may not be rooted strictly in the “ignorance” the ads are designed to overcome. History—including very recent history—shows that the information provided to the Census can be used against you.

The most recent examples occurred in 2002 and 2003, when the Census Bureau turned over information it had collected about Arab-Americans to Homeland Security.

Data from the 1940 Census was used to intern Japanese, Italian, and German Americans following the U.S.’s entry into the war, and to monitor and persecute others who escaped internment.

ID Card for Workers Is at Center of Immigration Plan

Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.

"It's the nub of solving the immigration dilemma politically speaking," Mr. Schumer said in an interview. The card, he said, would directly answer concerns that after legislation is signed, another wave of illegal immigrants would arrive. "If you say they can't get a job when they come here, you'll stop it."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Schumer is being disingenuous at best.

The reality is that large corporations love cheap, illegal labor, and will find ways around this law, should it be passed.

It will, however, function as a de facto "national ID card, and give the US government the ability to track its citizens.

Is this the point to which "life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" has devolved in this country?

4 NATO jets trail 2 Russian bombers over Arctic, Atlantic

Two Russian Tu-160 Blackjack strategic bombers that carried out a routine patrol mission over the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans were shadowed by four NATO fighters, the Defense Ministry said on Friday.

A similar patrol mission on September 29, 2009, was shadowed by an F-22 Raptor, reportedly the first time the world's only fifth-generation fighter aircraft, which uses stealth technology, was sent out to keep an eye on Russian planes.

I opened the bag as he pointed his weapon directly at me. I emptied the bag on the floor. It contained money and papers. I looked at him and he was laughing. I grabbed the second bag to open it but I could not. I tried many times but it was useless, so he shouted at me. He grabbed my hair and slapped me very hard across the face."

Politicizing the IAEA against Iran

On February 18, 2010 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued its latest report on Iran’s nuclear program. The tone of the latest report, as well as its speculations and unfounded allegations, are in sharp contrast with those in the past issued under the former IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei. The new Director General, Yukiya Amano, has set aside ElBaradei’s cautious approach and measured tone and uses blunt language. But, while the blunt language is not a problem, the fact is that, as the latest report indicates, the IAEA is being transformed from an objective international organization to a politicized one to be used by the United States and its allies to advance their agenda regarding Iran’s uranium enrichment program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Yukiya Amano has gotten "turned", and quickly.

This does not bode well for peace in the region, or the world.

Vatican fights to distance Pope from abuse scandals

"It is clearly evident that in the past few days there are some who have sought -- with a dogged focus on Regensburg and Munich -- elements to personally implicate the Holy Father in questions of abuse," spokesman Federico Lombardi said.

"It is clear that these efforts have failed," he said on Radio Vatican.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi; the horse is out of the barn on this one, and there is nothing you can do at this point but be completely honest about what happened, and develop a culture within church leadership where something like this can never happen again.

The model of celibacy, which was not an original aspect of Christianity, has for too long provided a "safe haven" for those who would use the power of their religious authority in a way which hurt children.

That behavior can no longer be tolerated by thinking parents, or any society which really values its children.

Photo by: AP 'EU may push Israel into peace talks'

The European Union might use its trade ties with Israel as leverage to pressure it into renewing peace talks with the Palestinians, Catherine Ashton, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy at the EU said on Saturday.

Ashton was speaking at an EU foreign minister conference held in Finland. Swedish Foreign Minister, Carl Bildt, said that Israel’s announcement on building in east Jerusalem during United States Vice President Joe Biden’s visit last week was intentional and not coincidental.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder about Ashton's naivete.

After having made that comment, it will be interesting to see if she actually is allowed into Israel on her upcoming Middle East trip.

Unfortunately, any attempt by the EU to "force" Israel to the conference table will only happen when pigs fly.

Finland moots EU sanctions on Iran

The European Union will unilaterally impose new sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear programme if there is no consensus at the UN, Finland's foreign minister said on Saturday.

"I think we'll be able to convince China and Russia and I'm confident that we'll get something at the UN Security Council," Alexander Stubb said on the sidelines of a meeting of his peers in Finland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even though the European Union may move unilaterally on sanctions against Iran, there will be no action at the UN regarding sanctions, because there is nothing other countries can possibly offer Russia and China to get them to go along.

And why?

Because Russia and China understand full well that sanctions are simply a prelude to a war which will, potentially, go global.

Child abuse claims sweep Catholic Church in Europe

Ireland was the first in Europe to confront the church's worldwide custom of shielding pedophile priests from the law and public scandal. Now that legacy of suppressed childhood horror is being confronted in other parts of the Continent — nowhere more poignantly than in Germany, the homeland of Pope Benedict XVI.

The recent spread of claims into the Netherlands, Austria and Italy has analysts and churchmen wondering how deep the scandal runs, which nation will be touched next, and whether a tide of lawsuits will force European dioceses to declare bankruptcy like their American cousins.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the Catholic church (and/or other religious institutions) cannot control the actions of their religious leadership, thinking parents with kids will start avoiding those institutions like the plague.

'Catholic Church Protects Paedophile Priests'

The Catholic Church has for decades protected paedophile priests and clerics who sexually abused children from judiciary prosecution, according to German theologians, law experts, and internal church documents.

The church hierarchy's complicity was confirmed recently through thousands of denouncements against numerous priests in Germany. In practically all the cases, the abusers were only transferred from one jurisdiction to another and never legally prosecuted.

Sex abuse allegation casts long shadow

A former trainee priest who has accused the founder of an influential Catholic order of committing sexual abuse said that the new Pope deliberately shelved an investigation into his claims for six years.

Pope knew priest was paedophile but allowed him to continue with ministry

The Pope was drawn directly into the Roman Catholic sex abuse scandal last night as news emerged of his part in a decision to send a paedophile priest for therapy. The cleric went on to reoffend and was convicted of child abuse but continues to work as a priest in Upper Bavaria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say the Catholics have gone into full damage-control mode over this, sending out emails to us all who dare report on the story consigning our souls to hell special delivery. In fact they are starting to sound as hysterical as the global warming cultists, who lately make the Scientologists look downright sane!

But they continue to miss my point. The real issue isn't whether Pope Benny knew or not. Personally, I think he did because before he got that center seat Pope Benny ran the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and his role in covering up sexual abuse scandals is well documented.

The real issue is that the God the Catholics pray to is supposed to be all-knowing and all-powerful. It says so right in that advertising brochure called the buy-bull. So, Catholics are required to believe that their God KNEW what was going on, yet did nothing to stop it, even ignoring toe prayers of the parents who presumably like parents everywhere pray that their children be kept safe from harm.

Right now I am getting emails from irate Catholics with lists of clergy sexual abuse in other denominations, and yes, I understand that these molestations happen in all faiths; we have so noted many times on this site.

My point is that only one such molestation, in just one church, contradicts the idea of the existence of a just and all powerful god.

The only time the church actually deals with this problem is when the civil courts intervene. I guess that means that Judge Judy is more powerful and to be more greatly feared than God? :)

The Hebronisation of Jerusalem

The recent escalation of tensions in Jerusalem with clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli police in and around the Old City appear to signify the emergence of a disturbing new trend: the Hebronisation of Jerusalem. This presages not only the triumph of the radical settler groups in taking over culturally sensitive parts of the city, but also further violence and turmoil. More importantly it also interrupts the delicate moves towards the resumption of negotiations between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority/PLO.

Quite a few people have asked why I put this page together. They argue that even if I am correct, and that there are no gods, what can the harm be in letting others believe in gods and goddesses.

My answer is that I have no problem with people believing what they want, so long as their beliefs are NOT used as an excuse to inflict harm upon others, extract wealth from them, enslave them, or to justify wars. My problem is with organizations created solely to exploit myths and beliefs for wealth and commercial power. History proves that religion is a tool of human enslavement. Even the Bible approves of slavery.

Germans to probe abuse claims including pope's brother

Catholic authorities in Germany announced two major abuse investigations Wednesday — one into the renowned choir once led by Pope Benedict XVI's brother and another more general look into what everyone, including the pope, knew about the sexual and physical abuse of students.

The Roman Catholic diocese of Regensburg in southern Germany appointed an independent investigator to examine the allegations of physical and sexual abuse that have engulfed the prestigious Regensburger Domspatzen boys choir, which was led by the Rev. Georg Ratzinger, the pope's older brother, from 1964 until 1994. So far, the sexual abuse allegations predate Ratzinger's term.

We need to remember that the vast majority of troubled option ARMs were made from 2004 to 2007. While analysts claim that there will be no reset problems, courtesy of low interest rates, the real problem stems from the recast of the mortgage. Much of this is typically hidden until it explodes like a financial time bomb.

The Stunning Fact That Connects Every Single Toyota Case

As Theodore Frank at the Washington Examiner points out, here are the reported ages of all 24 of the fatal Toyota (TM) cases:

60, 61, 63, 66, 68, 71, 72, 72, 77, 79, 83, 85, 89

Could it be that Toyota's PR crisis is actually a crisis of older folks improperly slamming on the pedals, and not some mysterious manufacturing glitch?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This might not be as absurd as it initially sounds.

Being that I am starting to get up into the high numbers age-wise, I am well aware of how "value engineering" to maximize profits has led to a situation where products, from cheese graters to cars, are remarkably flimsy. Chairs and ladders are now sold in "weight classes" in which those products will only hold up to the weight you pay for. Quite a contrast to ladders when I was a kid, where you didn't need to worry about whether a ladder would hold you or not unless you were so heavy you worried about plunging through the floor of your home and into the basement!

Likewise, this office chair I am sitting in now, made here in the USA and only a year old, is already falling apart, now that the Pretty Printed Piece of Paper that came with it as a substitute for reliability has expired.

We know that the pedal assembly in question was made in Indiana.

So, what may well be happening here is that these older drivers are not necessarily infirm; they simply grew up in a time when manufactured goods were far more rugged than they are now. When you stomped on a car pedal (especially during an emergency), it did not deform. Now, modern "value engineered" products are quite flimsy, to save cost and maximize profits.

These elderly drivers are not bad drivers; they simply drive the way they learned in a time when cars were built tough and rugged and did not deform when you sneeze on them.

NATO is conceding now that all of the slain people were civilians killed in the raid. NATO communications direct Rear Admiral Greg Smith also admitted that they had no real evidence that the men slain at the home had ever fired a shot against the NATO forces.

Truth, History and Integrity by Gilad Atzmon

The ADL’s behaviour is a glimpse into the notion of Jewish history and the Jewish understanding of the past. For the nationalist and political Jew, history is a pragmatic tale, it is an elastic account. It is foreign to any scientific or academic method. Jewish history transcends itself beyond factuality, truthfulness or correspondence rules with any given vision of reality. It also repels integrity or ethics. It by far prefers total submission, instead of creative and critical thinking. Jewish history is a phantasmic tale that is there to make the Jews happy and the Goyim behave themselves. It is there to serve the interests of one tribe and that tribe only.

Aging boomers face stark economics

Declining finances, rising health care costs threaten a generation

Webmaster's Commentary: 


The Baby Boomers are in trouble because back during the 1980s, it was realized that a surge of retirees would enter the Social Security System starting about now and that cash flow would go negative (originally expected near to 2020, the reversal has already occurred).

So, in the mid 1980s, Social Security taxes were increased in order to build up a cash surplus in the Social Security trust fund. But this was an intended surplus to cover the expected Baby Boomer shortfalls.

Then the Clintons came to power. And in 1998 Congressional Testimony revealed that Clinton's illusion of a Federal Budget Surplus had been manufactured by looting the cash from Social Security and spending it as general revenues!

In other words, Bill Clinton spent the retirement funds of Americans to balance his Federal Budget!

Don't take my word for it; read it yourself!

The government "borrowed" your retirement funds during what was claimed to be an economic boom, meaning that there could never really be a time when the loans could be paid back. So now, either the government has to tax the people a second time for the benefits already paid for (difficult to do when there is nothing to tax) or stiff Americans for the benefits they already paid for.

It is pretty obvious which way the Federal Government plans to handle this mess!

German tells of childhood abuse by Catholic priest

"When I was 10 years old, the local Catholic priest selected me to be an altar boy," he says.

"I was very excited. After the service he took me up to his apartment. I felt so proud. Then he locked the door, sat down and undid my trousers. He performed a sexual act on me. At that very moment he murdered my soul."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"I am certain that every parent of every child molested by the clergy prayed to the god of their church every night that their child would be safe from evil. That such abuse of children is epidemic suggests one of only two possible conclusions.

1. The omnipotent and omniscient all-powerful God they pray to is a sick psychotic bastard who thinks dirty old men molesting young children inside his local branches is kinda cool.

2. There is no God.

Take your pick."

Now, I realize this upsets those who refuse to face up to the fact they have been the victims of history's most enduring swindle, and I have the hate-mail to prove it. They cannot bring themselves to face up to the fact that they have lived their whole life believing that if they just keep putting money in the collection plate and repeat the magical incantations, that somehow they will escape death. Confronted with the choice of having to admit they got suckered, or continuing to turn a blind eye to continuing harm inflicted on yet more children, the vast majority of the religious deranged seem to have decided that pretending these assaults on children are somehow acceptable to their God is preferable to ever admitting that maybe they were fools and suckers.

We rightly criticize those parents who allowed their children to stay with Michael Jackson simply because they wanted to bask in Jackson's fame. But are those parents who ignored their own childrens' accusations against priests in order to secure their personal path to the afterlife any less vile?

Pope John Paul II Pope is 'shocked' to hear of abuse case in Munich while he was archbishop

Pope Benedict XVI has for the first time been drawn into the Catholic sex abuse scandal in his home country of Germany.

His former archdiocese of Munich has acknowledged that, while he was in charge, it dealt with a suspected paedophile priest by transferring him to a different parish where he went on to commit sex offences against children. The revelation has drawn attention to Benedict's handling of abuse claims, both when archbishop and later as a prefect of the Vatican office dealing with such crimes, a position he held until becoming pope in 2005.

He was terrified, held for 10 hours, traumatized by the incident, and unable to sleep, "worried sick about his brother in jail and extremely afraid that the soldiers would come back" and do it again, which they did, and do repeatedly to hundreds of Palestinian youths, their siblings, parents and friends, guilty of being Palestinian on land Israel wants to make historic Palestine an ethnically pure Jewish state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, according to the IDF, ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is absolutely acceptable, be it by slaughtering an innocent pregnant woman, denying care to medically fragile Palestinians, or torturing prisoners some time to death.

One has to shake one's head at the reality that many of those in the Israeli military and Israeli government are the grand-children of Holocaust survivors.

One might imagine somehow that the understanding that all ethnic cleansing is morally appalling would have wound up being a primary value for a society whose ancestors had survived it; unfortunately, that is not the case with Israel.

Israeli army to seal off West Bank as tensions rise

The action was taken "for security reasons" including a risk of attacks, the spokesman said. The area was sealed off at midnight on Thursday.

Israeli police have also said they would bar Muslim men under the age of 50 from prayers on Friday at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound, one of Islam's holiest sites, fearing unrest.

The moves come after violent clashes at the site, which is also holy to Jews, during last week's Muslim prayers, and fresh tensions over Israeli plans to build 1,600 homes for Jewish settlers in mostly Arab east Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rather than eliminating unrest, these actions by the IDF are almost guaranteed to provoke violence, which is precisely why the IDF is doing this.
