Letter to the Auditor of The New York Times Company

Over the past decade, The New York Times Company’s irresponsible financial management has left this company with a balance sheet emaciated as a Giacometti sculpture. Unfortunately, for shareholders, past negligent financial management has left the very same incompetent management team with few options – for financial survival – such as selling assets and cutting costs. Yet, when looking at the Times’ financial fragility, I do not see it surviving this vicious economic depression.

Israel-60 Years of Abusing Palestinian

The most propagandized country on earth, the US.

Sixty years of massive, ongoing, coldly calculated human rights abuses against the Palestinian people.

That's the legacy of the State of Israel.

Americans pay the bills for this tyranny and our hopelessly corrupt news media and elected officials go along with it because it's politically expedient.

Prostitution "journalism": Yup, mainstream media is intentional propaganda. Accept the evidence

Please click and read the outstanding work of Stephen Lendman in Paid lying – what passes for major media journalism. Stephen documents major areas of propaganda. I also recommend the work of PuppetGov to artistically represent the fact of Americans being played by political “leadership” and their media whores. An example of their video work is below in powerful beauty (warning: some strong language).

In my work, to just consider one area of easily-demonstrated intentional lies of omission and commission, propaganda: I’ve previously documented the two principle fears some Americans espouse with Iran and threaten war to prove beyond doubt they are without basis in fact:

Polar Bears Falling To Their Deaths: Plane Stupid's Shock Ad (VIDEO)

An airplane engine humming crescendos in the background as polar bears drop out of the sky, slam to the ground and meet their bloody deaths. At first you may be wondering, why am I being subjected to this brutal imagery?

It's because Plane Stupid has a message for you, and whether it's effective or not, it's shocking enough to keep you watching. The video is a new promotional film from the British group that campaigns aggressively to end airport expansion, citing it as a prime culprit in the earth's changing climate. According to the video, "An average European flight produces over 400 kg. of greenhouse gases for every passenger. That's the weight of an adult polar bear."

However, some are questioning whether Plane Stupid's shock tactics have any value.

Iraq war inquiry 'won't quiz Gordon Brown': A travesty if PM escapes probe, critics claim

Gordon Brown looks like escaping a public grilling by the Iraq war inquiry - avoiding the risk of giving potentially embarrassing testimony before the General Election.

Government insiders said there was 'no expectation' the Prime Minister would be called to give evidence about his role in the build-up to the conflict.

But critics said it would be a 'travesty' if Mr Brown avoided a high-profile inquisition by Sir John Chilcot's committee which will begin its public hearings today.

"The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them,"
-George Orwell

There is no commiseration between myself and the impassive masses - my bitter words only sting and irritate those who are nothing more than accessories to the sugar-coated genocides perpetrated by the West.
The bobble-headed 'yes-men' and 'yes-women' who dress up in patriotic drag, the flag-whores and mainstream media congregants who have refused to acknowledge a single error in their ways for they see themselves as chosen ones - they are the true blot on the landscape of diplomacy.

The Red Planet was once blue... Giant ocean once covered third of Mars

A vast ocean once covered a third of Mars, scientists believe.

Such a stunning prospect greatly increases the chances of life having existed on the Red Planet, the fourth from the Sun in our solar system.

Researchers have come to the conclusion after using new software to analyse images of the surface. As a result, they have managed to find dozens of valleys to build up the most detailed map to date.

The valleys, first spotted in 1971, were caused by a network of rivers more than twice as extensive as previously mapped. The water channels were in a belt between the equator and mid-southern latitudes.

The experts from Northern Illinois University and Nasa believe they mark the paths of rivers that once flowed from the planet's southern highlands into a huge ocean in the north.

UN:Israel Has Secret Prison

The UN has sent an official request to Israel to admit the existence of secret prison camp 1391, dubbed in the press “Israel’s Guantanamo Bay,” according to the Palestinian Authority minister of prisoners affairs.

Minister Issa Qaraqe told a news conference in Ramallah on Saturday that the UN had asked the Israeli government in a letter to officially acknowledge that the facility.

Although Israel declined the UN’s request to discuss 1391 earlier this year, Israeli officials have indirectly confirmed the facility's existence. Former Israeli Justice Minister Dan Merridor told the Haaretz newspaper that he was aware of the site but never visited it.

Just when you thought that the dust had settled from the scandals of Wall Street (at least temporarily), details come out of another Ponzi scheme by the titans of banking, this time with student loans. According to recently released court documents, Citigroup, JP Morgan and the education finance company Nelnet are being sued by the federal government for fraud....

Moreover, to rope in more borrowers to boost subsidy payouts, Nelnet deliberately misled consumers with false advertising, promising students could save thousands of dollars by consolidating their loans –even though FFEL prohibits private lenders from engaging in such practices.

On August 25, 1992, Donald Carson, a bank executive believed his home in San Diego County was being invaded by robbers. He called 911 then grabbed his pistol. DEA agents shot Carson three times--twice after he was down and clearly disabled. Carson spent 7 weeks in intensive care fighting for his life. He has permanent major disabilities. The DEA had, contrary to policy, acted on a tip without independently verifying the information. No drugs were found. The DEA had been relying upon a paid informant.

Viscount Monckton on Climategate: ‘They Are Criminals’

Finally, these huckstering snake-oil salesmen and “global warming” profiteers — for that is what they are — have written to each other encouraging the destruction of data that had been lawfully requested under the Freedom of Information Act in the UK by scientists who wanted to check whether their global temperature record had been properly compiled. And that procurement of data destruction, as they are about to find out to their cost, is a criminal offense. They are not merely bad scientists — they are crooks. And crooks who have perpetrated their crimes at the expense of British and U.S. taxpayers.

I am angry, and so should you be.

Kissinger's Call for New World Order

Kissinger's Call for New World Order

The chance for a new world order

By Henry A. Kissinger

As the new U.S. administration prepares to take office amid grave financial and international crises, it may seem counterintuitive to argue that the very unsettled nature of the international system generates a unique opportunity for creative diplomacy.

That opportunity involves a seeming contradiction. On one level, the financial collapse represents a major blow to the standing of the United States. While American political judgments have often proved controversial, the American prescription for a world financial order has generally been unchallenged. Now disillusionment with the United States' management of it is widespread.

FLASHBACK - A terrorist plot unearthed

TWO decades after the United States began its war in Afghanistan, the chickens are coming home to roost. On January 7, acting on the basis of an intelligence tip-off, the Delhi Police arrested a Bangladesh national, Syed Abu Nasir, a top Lashkar-e-Taiba activist alleged to have been supervising an operation to bomb the U.S. Consulates in Chennai and Calcutta. Information on Nasir's arrest was at first treated with disdain by the U.S. Government, which believed that it was part of an Indian smear campaign against Pakistan. But subsequent investigation has led to disturbing evidence that Nasir's tale is true - and that the U.S. has no one to blame but itself for the war that Pakistan-based Islamic groups are now waging against it.

"Climategate": Peer-Review System Was Hijacked By Warming Alarmists

One of the most striking revelations to immediately emerge from the "climategate" scandal has been references to efforts by scientists espousing the human-caused warming theory to exclude contrary viewpoints from important scientific publications.

Among the thousands of emails and documents hacked or leaked from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University last week are several references to an agenda to shut down scientific debate on global warming by stifling counter-evidence from other scientists.

Call For Independent Inquiry Into Climategate as Global Warming Fraud Implodes

Calls for an independent inquiry into what is being dubbed “Climategate” are growing as the foundation for man-made global warming implodes following the release of emails which prove researchers colluded to manipulate data in order to “hide the decline” in global temperatures.

Former British chancellor Lord Lawson was the latest to demand an impartial investigation be launched into the scandal, which arrives just weeks before the UN climate conference in Copenhagen. “They should set up a public inquiry under someone who is totally respected and get to the truth,” he told the BBC Radio Four Today programme.

Climategate: Man-made Global Warming Fraudsters Exposed

Thanks to a fortunate turn of events, hackers have retrieved secretive IPCC emails discussing the manipulation of data to support the man-made global warming fraud and how the scientists advocating this hoax have been working to silence their peers that don’t support the lie.

Hopefully, this information has come out just in time to keep President Obama from signing the climate treaty in Copenhagen that will obligate us to pay the bulk of the global carbon tax, a tax not meant to fight climate change, but to finance a tyrannical world government.

The committee said that after the kidnapping of Bilal’s wife last week, he was transferred from Negev prison to join his wife in Petah Tikva, where Israeli interrogators maltreated and physically assaulted him despite the fact that he cannot see.

Israel Orders Palestinians To Evacuate 25 Apartments North Of Jerusalem

Palestinian sources reported that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) handed last night court orders to evacuate 25 Palestinian apartments in Samiramis area behind the segregation wall in the north of occupied Jerusalem.

The protesters pointed out that renting the space to a racist group would taint the Mets commitment to diversity and offend the memory of Jackie Robinson. The demonstration was organized by Adalah-NY, CodePink, Jews Against the Occupation NYC, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Jews Say No, and Jewish Voice for Peace. The protest came after 2600 emails were sent to the Mets and countless phone calls were made. Jay Horowitz, V.P.

"One step out of line and Israeli warplanes will be completely destroyed," said Hajizadeh, explaining that Iran will annihilate Israeli F-15 and F-16 jets, if the country is attacked.

"Even if they escape our sophisticated defense system, they will never see their bases again; because our surface-to-surface missiles are on their marks to target Israeli military bases before the dust settles," he added.

As I reported previously, CIA’s secret Predator drone attacks on suspected terrorists in Pakistan are already doing just that. But, wrote Jane Mayer in “The Predator War” (The New Yorker, Oct. 26):

“The embrace of the Predator program has occurred with remarkably little public discussion.

Bagram: A living hell

The US military has allowed journalists into its newly expanded secret detention centre at Bagram air base in Afghanistan this week.

The base has been described by campaigners as Guantanamo Bay's "more evil twin" and the allegations of torture and murder within its secretive walls continue to this day.

The US claims this is proof of its determination to provide greater transparency and openness in its policy of extraordinary rendition and detention without trial.

The claim was somewhat undermined by the fact that the touring journalists had no access to the hundreds of inmates held at the facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There can be absolutely no transparency in a process which embraces extraordinary rendition and detention without trial!

The existence of this prison, as well as Guantanamo (and the others we don't know about) are an "in-your-face" affront to every American value moral thinking Americans cherish, period, end of discussion.

Scottish invention promises power revolution

A radical new design of electrical generator that solves an engineering quandary and promises to be cheaper, lighter and more reliable than anything currently available has been unveiled by scientists at the University of Edinburgh.

The work by Markus Mueller and Alasdair McDonald at the university’s Institute of Energy Systems has solved one of the fundamental engineering problems faced by builders of offshore wind turbines.

The institute’s design — through a novel arrangement of the magnets inside the generator and the copper coils that produce electricity as they pass the magnets — has succeeded in cutting the weight of direct-drive generators by up to half and made assembly much easier. A prototype installed on a wind turbine has proved that the design works.

The Children’s Crusade

"Soldiers came to school today," announced the kindergarten kid. “They only kill bad people. They don’t kill good people.” This story comes to us by way of Jon Letman of Truthout.org. The kindergarten kid is his 5-year-old son.

"In his book The Limits of Power, Boston University history professor and retired Army Col. Andrew J. Bacevich describes a near future in which the U.S. is in an almost constant state of war. He writes, ‘Rather than brief interventions ending in decisive victory, sustained presence will be the norm. … The future will be one of small wars, expected to be frequent, protracted, perhaps perpetual.’ If Bacevich’s bleak assessment proves true, it’s no wonder the National Guard sees value in chatting up kindergarteners."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have ever watched this seductive practice at a military base holding some kind of a "community festival" for local civilians and their families, sometimes complete with a performance by the Blue Angels, it is a wonder to behold.

The young men and women recruited for these missions are very carefully chosen. They have a wonderful way with kids, explaining how the various weapons work in such a way as to not really explain that the ultimate purpose of these weapons is to create death, mutilation, and carnage.

Kids love them.

Parents who love their kids should think twice about letting their kids getting anywhere near these "kinder-recruiters".

If these recruiters are being allowed in elementary schools, parents should have the ability to "opt-out" of this kind of presentation for their kids, particularly the very young ones.

But if our military are doing such presentations in elementary schools, it is obvious that the military and civilian government are really hell-bent on a "wars without end" future for you, your kids, and your grand-children.

Out of Iraq, Into the Gulf

Without a doubt, this represents an accomplishment of some sort. Historically speaking, it’s news of the first order. No other great power, from the Han Chinese and the Romans to the British Empire, has ever built so many military outposts in such far-flung places.

If, for the first time in its history, the U.S. Navy sets up a permanent strike force based in Bahrain in the Persian Gulf, Expeditionary Strike Group 5, remember to check the National, the English-language paper in the United Arab Emirates, for it, not your local rag or the Washington Post, New York Times, or Wall Street Journal. Mind you, we’re talking about the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf, the unsettled oil and natural gas heartland of the planet, yet not a peep.

Webmaster's Commentary:

US Plans to Copy Iraq Prison Strategy in Afghanistan

Iraq’s police have long complained that the US detention system, with its brutal reputation, amounts to a series of “terrorist factories” where innocent detainees and petty criminals are radicalized.

Civil war spreads across north west Pakistan

The Pakistani military offensive in South Waziristan against Tehrik-e-Taliban (TTP)—the Pakistani Taliban—has escalated into a civil war throughout the Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA) and North West Frontier Province (NWFP). Islamists and tribal militants now consider themselves in a fight to the death with the pro-US government of President Ali Asif al-Zardari, which has bowed to Washington’s demands to deploy overwhelming force to stop the predominantly ethnic Pashtun regions being used to support the Taliban resistance over the border in Afghanistan.

Cities find the fine print is costing millions

A few years ago, Detroit struck a derivatives deal with UBS and other banks that allowed it to save more than $2 million a year in interest on $800 million worth of bonds. But the fine print carried a potentially devastating condition. If the city's credit rating dropped, the banks could opt out of the deal and demand a sizable breakup fee. That's precisely what happened in January: After years of fiscal trouble, Detroit saw its credit rating slashed to junk. Suddenly the sputtering Motor City was on the hook for a $400 million tab.

There is only one name for these kinds of financial practices: usury of the worst kind.

As Washington Talks Iraq Withdrawal, the Pentagon Builds Up Bases in the Region

In fact, since 2001 the Pentagon has been pouring significant sums of money into the "critical base and port facilities" mentioned by the general -- both U.S. sites and those of its key regional partners. These are often ignored facts-on-the-ground, which signal just how enduring the U.S. military presence in the region is likely to be, no matter what happens in Iraq. Press coverage of this long-term infrastructural build-up has been remarkably minimal, given the implications for future conflicts in the oil heartlands of the planet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Through these actions (coupled with the growing expansion of US forces inside and around South America),it appears that our military and civilian leadership are boldly planning for yet more "wars without end", while homeless vets sleep in our streets, and our kids are not getting enough to eat.

What's wrong with this picture??

Wave of Debt Payments Facing U.S. Government

Treasury officials now face a trifecta of headaches: a mountain of new debt, a balloon of short-term borrowings that come due in the months ahead, and interest rates that are sure to climb back to normal as soon as the Federal Reserve decides that the emergency has passed.

With the national debt now topping $12 trillion, the White House estimates that the government’s tab for servicing the debt will exceed $700 billion a year in 2019, up from $202 billion this year, even if annual budget deficits shrink drastically. Other forecasters say the figure could be much higher.

Astounding discovery. Apparently, MS is caused by narrowed veins in the neck, and NOT an autoimmune disease. The doctor who discovered this has successfully treated MS patients through surgery to inflate the veins.

The Biggest Rip-off of All Time

“Exactly. We already knew Wall Street execs had been giving themselves megabonuses for most of the decade —
— $29 billion for Citigroup’s Weill in 2003 … $27 billion for Blankfein at Goldman Sachs in 2006 … another $106 billion for Jon Winkelried and Gary Cohn, also at Goldman Sachs, in 2006-2007 … and many more. We already knew how the money from these obscenely large bonuses alone could have been enough to save millions of jobs.”


“But what we did not know is how soon after the bailouts Wall Street would be at it again — first, dishing out megabonuses to heavy hitters in their trading rooms … then to sluggers in their sales departments … and later, as soon as the public tired of protesting, to themselves.”

“Exactly how soon?”

Climate Emails Stoke Debate

The correspondence between dozens of climate-change researchers, including many in the U.S., illustrates bitter feelings among those who believe human activities cause global warming toward rivals who argue that the link between humans and climate change remains uncertain.

Some emails also refer to efforts by scientists who believe man is causing global warming to exclude contrary views from important scientific publications.

The US Congressman who sold his soul to the Israel lobby

Adam Shapiro tells the story of a hitherto principled friend and campaigner for justice and human rights, Tom Perriello, who ran for Congress and, once elected, betrayed all of his principles and became a mere tool of the pro-apartheid American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Save time and energy. Let's write abut the Congressmen who sell their souls to Israel.

The Democrats’ War Tax

Sen. Carl Levin has a solution to the problem of how to finance our losing, futile war in Afghanistan – a war we are fighting to support what has now been officially deemed the second most corrupt government on earth: he wants a war tax. An "additional income tax to the upper brackets, folks earning more than $200,000 or $250,000" a year is what the Michigan Democrat and powerful chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee proposes. His colleagues in the House have the same idea, only their tax is far less "progressive."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Go ahead, fools; tax the rich.

Not that I want the rich to suffer any more than any other Americans, of course. I still hold that we are ALL taxed way too much for what little comes back to us from the Federal Government.

But as the poor and middle classes are driven into poverty and the government starts to loot the upper classes to feed its insatiable appetite for other peoples' money, the rich will suddenly discover that their politics are more in line with the blogs and the alternative media than they realized, and that support for the alternative media may yield some very real dividends down the road.

This may be the watershed moment.

Obama’s feeble dollar sparks a new goldrush

All of this means that investors do not believe that President Barack Obama will respond to the enormous pressure put on him during his visit to Beijing and take steps to strengthen the dollar. The president and Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner might talk the talk of a strong dollar but they walk the walk of a declining one. A weak dollar should lift exports and cut imports, which in White House terms means jobs for American workers. And it is jobs that the president asks his aides about first thing every morning. With reason.

Hacked E-Mail Is New Fodder for Climate Dispute

The e-mail messages, attributed to prominent American and British climate researchers, include discussions of scientific data and whether it should be released, exchanges about how best to combat the arguments of skeptics, and casual comments — in some cases derisive — about specific people known for their skeptical views. Drafts of scientific papers and a photo collage that portrays climate skeptics on an ice floe were also among the hacked data, some of which dates back 13 years.

In one e-mail exchange, a scientist writes of using a statistical “trick” in a chart illustrating a recent sharp warming trend. In another, a scientist refers to climate skeptics as “idiots.”

Climategate: why it matters

There’s no point in anyone from the AGW camp watching it: they’ve made up their minds and no quantity of contrary evidence, however devastating, is going to shake their considered position of “Nyah nyah nyah.

Global Warming Meltdown: Climategate!

For years the IPCC has been controlled by a handful of the worst liars in the world, utterly devoted to taking actual climate data and twisting it to confirm the assertion that the Earth was not only warming dramatically, but that humanity was in peril of rising oceans, melting glaciers and polar ice caps, more hurricanes, the die-off of countless animal species, and every other calamity that could possibly be attributed to “global warming”, including acne.

So, around November 20, when some enterprising individual hacked into the computers of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU), making off with thousands of emails and documents that demonstrate the level of collusion and deception being practiced by its scientists.

Nov 23 06:11

Copenhagen will fail – and quite right too

I have no idea whether the majority scientific view (and it is far from a consensus) is correct. Certainly, it is curious that, whereas their models predicted an acceleration in global warming this century as the growth in emissions accelerated, so far this century there has been no further warming at all. But the current majority view may still be right.

Climategate: how the MSM reported the greatest scandal in modern science

But in the case of “Climate Change”, the MSM has been caught with its trousers down. The reason it has been so ill-equipped to report on this scandal is because almost all of its Environmental Correspondents and Environmental Editors are parti pris members of the Climate-Fear Promotion lobby. Most of their contacts (and information sources) work for biased lobby groups like Greenpeace and the WWF, or conspicuously pro-AGW government departments and Quangos such as the Carbon Trust. How can they bring themselves to report on skullduggery at Hadley Centre when the scientists involved are the very ones whose work they have done most to champion and whose pro-AGW views they share?

As Upton Sinclair once said:

Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby – Dispatches

For feedreaders, the video is also available here, here (although YT now claims it is no longer available due to country-specific ‘copyright restrictions’) and here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the documentary Israel's supporters are desperate to keep under wraps.

And more than just continued British obeisance to Israel is at stake here. The world could ignore the matter when it's just the dumb schmuck Americans under the control of a foreign government, but to see both the US and UK under Tel Aviv's control is a trend, and the rest of the world are starting to take a closer look at their own governments to see if they too are the victim of Israeli subversives.

As a side note, the British Media has courage the US media only dreams of. Dispatches did a documentary about the British Israeli Lobby but when Mearsheimer and Walt published their book on the American Israeli Lobby, CBS 60 Minutes flat out refused to cover the story.

Three Mile Island nuclear plant leaks radioactivity

Nuclear safety officials have moved to quell worries about a leak of radioactivity from Three Mile Island nuclear plant, saying that human safety was never endangered.

ME: Teen killed by NYC police was shot 11 times

Vasconcellos and two others were spotted leaving a city park in Queens at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday by four officers in an unmarked car. Vasconcellos ran and was pursued by three officers. He then turned and pointed a 9mm semiautomatic pistol at them, Browne said.

"They ordered him to drop the gun, and he did not comply. Three officers fired a total of 14 shots," Browne said.

Vasconcellos, who was also carrying a boxcutter, did not fire his gun. He was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Vasconcellos, who was also carrying a boxcutter, did not fire his gun. He was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital."

This cop I knew in Los Angeles (the one who was in in the visitor's area when O.J. told Rosie Greer that he had killed his wife) used to tell me that undercover cops would keep untraceable confiscated guns to drop on a victim of police shootings. This case sounds like that might be what happened here.

How our governments use terrorism to control us

How our governments use terrorism to control us

The sponsorship of terrorism by western governments, targeting their own populations, has been a taboo subject. Although major scandals have received cursory coverage in the media, the subject has been allowed to immediately disappear without discussion or investigation. Therefore the appearance this year of two major studies of this subject is a welcome breakthrough, and provides essential reading for anyone struggling to understand the events of September 11, 2001 and the post September 11 world.

The War On Consciousness

We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds. The global war on terror that is being fought around the world is an embodied reflection in the material world of a deeper, more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of consciousness itself.

We have the most criminal regime in all of our history wreaking unspeakable horror on the entire planet, while simultaneously waging war on the consciousness of its own citizens - US. If we aren't aware of this, we are unwittingly playing into, supporting and complicit in the evil that is being perpetrated in our name.

Or to silence academic critics just when those who induced the invasion of Iraq intensified their efforts to expand this war to Iran and now Pakistan?

If the behavior described is not treason, what is? If this is treason, why have those complicit not been charged? Is Professor Ettenberg still employed by the university? If so, why? Have rabbis Gross-Schaefer and Heir been dismissed from their positions of influence? If not, why not?

Slave Labor in Utah

Prosecutor Scott Burns is so addicted to cheap non-union labor that he is willing to throw the book at medical marijuana patients in Utah to put them in prison run sweatshops. Pending U.S. Senate confirmation he will head the part of the Drug Czar’s office that focuses on individual users of illegal drugs. They could very well end up making costumes for T.V. shows like E.R.

Scott Burns, if confirmed, will include medical-marijuana patients in the federal prison industry program. He will echo Congressman Bob Barr’s mantra “no marijuana use is medical” and off to prison they go. His appointment is a vote to broaden the scope of prison industries to include a lot more people and steal a lot of good jobs from people who are not in prison.

Prison Factories: Slave Labor for the New World Order?

In California, prisoners who refuse to work are moved to discliplinary housing and lose canteen priveleges, as well as "good time" credit that slices hard time off their sentences.

What is a troubling trend today may become a social and economic disaster in the future.

In the hours after her capture she was forced to shower naked in front of the soldiers before three of them raped her.

After the Sabbath meal, the platoon commander, a man called Moshe who had served in the British army during the second world war proposed a vote on what should be done with her.

One of the options discussed was to make her work in the outpost’s kitchen. However, 20 or so of the soldiers present made their vote clear by repeatedly chanting: “We want to f***”.

Moshe then organised a rota for groups of the soldiers to gang rape the girl over the next three days. Moshe and one of his sergeants went first leaving the girl unconscious. When she complained about her treatment the next morning Moshe ordered one of his sergeants to kill her.

It is well known that the IPCC machine is made up of bureaucrats and scientists who think they know how the world should be run. The language contained in a draft of the latest climate treaty (meant to replace the Kyoto treaty) involves global governance and the most authoritarian means by which people’s energy use will be restricted and monitored by the government.

Even if this language does not survive in the treaty’s final form, it illustrates the kind of people we are dealing with.

"Even if their planes escape, they will be struck by our destructive surface-to-surface missiles before they land at the bases they took off from."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ICC has previously declared that absent a referral by the UN Security Council, that is lacks jurisdiction to investigate Israel's war crimes in Gaza because Israel is not a member of the ICC.

This may explain why Israel feels they are able to openly attack Gaza again, just one hour after HAMAS signaled an agreement among all the militants to end rocket attacks against Israel.

After all, Israel doers not want HAMAS seen as able to run Palestine after Abbas departure, and Israel does not want a cease fire or peace; they want the land, and with the United Nations and the ICC unwilling to enforce international law Israel has just demonstrated that they will go on doing as they please with the rest of planet Earth.

The ICC is making the same mistake with Israel that Neville Chamberlain did with Nazi Germany and will pay the same horrible price for their lack of resolve.

Word choice

If the government uses tax funds to bail out Goldman Sachs, that's called capitalism. If the executives of Goldman Sachs turn around and award themselves million-dollar bonuses, that's called free enterprise.

If the government uses fairy tales to justify going to war, that's called national defense. If Washington pays for the war with $1 trillion of our money, that's called patriotism.

If the government proposes a universal health care plan for you, that's called socialism.

As the Light onto the Nations by Gilad Atzmon

The Jerusalem post reported yesterday that the Chairman of NATO's Military Committee, Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola, visited Israel earlier this week to study “IDF tactics and methods that the military alliance can utilise for its war in Afghanistan.” A senior Israeli defence official added "The one thing on NATO's mind today is how to win in Afghanistan…Di Paola was very impressed by the IDF, which is a major source of information due to our operational experience."

I would advise both the Israeli official and Admiral Di Paola to slightly curb their enthusiasm. The IDF didn’t win a single war since 1967. Yes, it murdered many civilians, it flattened many cities, it starved millions, it has been committing war crimes on a daily basis for decades and yet, it didn’t win a war.
