The Real Deal on the Qur’an-burning Scam: What the Media Didn’t Tell You

We told the media on Thursday, Sept. 9th at a national press conference held at CAIR’s office in Washington, DC, that fire regulations would prevent the Reverend from any type of public burning. But the media continued to pump up this Islamophobe. I guess it’s true what they say about the media, “if it bleeds, it leads”, or in this case “if it burns.” However, a little bit of responsible journalism would have revealed that Rev. Terry Jones had about a “snowball’s chance in hell” an appropriate metaphor for this wicked behavior. Here’s what the media missed:

Secretive Executive Order Establishes 'Big Brother' Health Bureaucracy

Eric Blair
Activist Post

On June 10th, 2010, amidst the chaotic 24-hour oil spill coverage, Barack Obama quietly signed an Executive Order that some claim lays the foundation for implementing Codex Alimentarius, which is a collection of internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines, and other recommendations relating to foods, food production and food safety (Wiki). Codex is widely viewed in the natural health world as a draconian measure to centralize control of all food and other ingestibles. While this Executive Order may not go that far, it does seem to lay the groundwork for much more control over our personal life choices.

STUART LITTLEWOOD: START AGAIN WITH A CLEAN SHEET, PALESTINIANS

So criminal within itself, it flinches from upholding the rule of international law. So corrupt, it happily outsources its foreign policy to terrorists in Tel Aviv. The idea that America acts as an honest broker for peace between its fellow cut-throat Israel and their victim, Palestine, on whose neck the Zionist jackboot is firmly planted, is a joke that is only funny in the hysterical sense.

The idea that any country, let alone America, would promote talks where one party is expected to make concessions to another which is bent on land-theft and whose government can only survive if it continues to defy international law, is madness. But Obama is up for it.

Look at the positions on the map to see where the first abandoned and blown out well is positioned in relation to the current well they supposedly capped.

This country is an amazing place. It is filled with wonders from natural to intellectual and everyday. When I leave my house, I straighten the flag flying at my door to ensure the eagle on the end is straight and pointing to the sky. I am proud to be an American, for there is no other place on Earth that ensures genuine freedom in all its aspects. There is, however, one thing that makes me wonder about my country’s future and brings a taint to my love of this Great Land. It lies within the educational and cultural depravity enhanced and enforced by a growing mental laziness and blinding devotion to ignorance perpetuated by irresponsible journalism.

Alan Hart: Does the Palestinian Diaspora Care Enough To Become Engaged?

The incredible almost superhuman steadfastness of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians is the reason why Zionism will never be able to close the re-opened Palestine file again unless it resorts to a final round of ethnic cleansing, to drive the Palestinians off the West Bank and into Jordan or wherever. In my analysis it is more likely than not that Zionism’s in-Israel leaders will create a pretext to do just that at a point in the foreseeable future

Nureddin Sabir: Disbanding the Palestinian Authority would scupper Israeli strategy

Often at seminal historical junctures the need to venture “outside the box” and think the unthinkable becomes critical.

Such a moment is now upon the Palestinians. At stake is whether they will survive as a people or dissolve into the oblivion of the banished: ethnically cleansed from their homeland, the world’s new gypsies, a second-class diaspora, third-class inhabitants of isolated reservations.

The challenge facing the Palestinians now is to step back from the abyss and seize the moment by turning threats and dangers into game-changing opportunities and a new strategic vision.

The backlash begins against the world landgrab

The neo-colonial rush for global farmland has gone exponential since the food scare of 2007-2008.

Last week's long-delayed report by the World Bank suggests that purchases in developing countries rose to 45m hectares in 2009, a ten-fold jump from levels of the last decade. Two thirds have been in Africa, where institutions offer weak defence.

As is by now well-known, sovereign wealth funds from the Mid-East, as well as state-entities from China, the Pacific Rim, and even India are trying to lock up chunks of the world's future food supply. Western agribusiness is trying to beat them to it. Western funds - many listed on London's AIM exchange - are in turn trying to beat them. The NGO GRAIN, and farmlandgrab.com, have both documented the stampede in detail.

The US-led war in Afghanistan, says IISS, using uncharacteristically blunt language, is "a long-drawn-out disaster".

The bid to rename the sweetener by the Corn Refiners Association comes as Americans' concerns about health and obesity have sent consumption of high fructose corn syrup, used in soft drinks but also in bread, cereal and other foods, to a 20-year low.

The group plans to apply Tuesday to the Food and Drug Administration to get "corn sugar" approved as an alternative name for food labels.

Yet, for some strange reason, there has never been a thorough and impartial investigation of that day and the events that led up to it.

Even more intriguing is the collective apathy displayed by the American people towards discovering what really happened and especially when there are so many anomalies contradicting the official accounts that have been recorded in countless reports, books and documentaries by scholars who are invariably written-off as lunatic conspiracy theorists.

4 Reasons to Change the Way We View Education

Mary Hickcox
Activist Post

The way in which we view education has a lot to do with our past; how we grew up, societal influences, and the way we were schooled ourselves. It is the legacy that we pass on to our children. Tragically, the current way our education system is engineered, it appears our children are doomed to be unsuccessful.

We live in a time where our schools are failing, our children are unhappy and overworked, and the current system becomes more obsolete every year. Something needs to change if we want our children to be happy, and our country to be successful, once again. The system we have now was built on a fault line and it has become increasingly evident that the cracks are growing exponentially. It isn’t too late to change that model.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP BACK TO THE TOP!
I wonder how long it will take for the Star advertiser to shut off the comments this time! :)

UPDATE: Well, they have not shut them off, but they are starting to delete comments that do not go the way that is desired. I posted a very detailed reply to "Liberalas" pointing out that Israelis were arrested on 9-11, some 60 in total were held in connection with the WTC attacks, and apparently this is too much news for this particular newspaper!

Other posters are also complaining that their comments are being selectively deleted. Feel free to complain. (Mail link fixed)

UPDATE 2: The Star Advertiser has (predictably) shut down the comments on this article, because they were failing to sell the Kool Aid that Muslims are bad and deserving of war. This is the reason the corporate media is no longer the mainstream media. I view this shutting off of comments as a surrender on their part. Here follows the last post I entered just before Star Advertiser pulled the plug.


Look, it is obvious what you are your associates are here to do.

For months the US Government and Israel have been trying to sell us a new war, this time with Iran, because Iran is supposedly a nuclear threat to the United States. This ploy has failed to gain any traction with the public mostly because we all remember how the very same people screaming about Iran's nuclear weapons made the same claims about Iraq. Fool me once...

So, the war-makers and the whores who work for them have switched tactics, and are trying to take us all back to the glorious days of the 13th century when Christians and Muslims gladly cut each others' throats over whose god has the largest genitalia.

But this too is failing. The war makers may be trapped living in the past but the rest of us live at the dawn of the 21st century. We have the wisdom of having lived through the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons, which grants us the awareness that all governments lie to their people and they have been doing it since Ramses II lied to his people about his non-existent victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, secure in his knowledge that the Egyptian people of that time had no way to discover his lie.

But that was then and this is now and thanks to the citizens media, the life expectancy of a government lie gets shorter every day, and today can be clocked with an egg timer.

The war mongers, however, are stuck living in the past, more out of petulance than any other reason. They want to play by the rules that used to work in the good old days of the Cold War, when Americans would fling their money and the lives of their children anywhere the US Government said, "Commie! Commie!"

Those days are gone forever. And they are not coming back.

In the real world, ask yourself just who is the real danger?

Who has ruined your financial well being? Muslims or Wall Street?

Who has made the world angry at America? Muslims or US Foreign Policy in support of Israel?

Who is destroying the very soul of what it means to be America? Muslims, or those who would gladly abandon the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion in their quest to ignite a new crusade?

Who is bringing theocracy to America? Muslims or Christians who insist that their religion should reign supreme over the land?

Who has destroyed the Bill of Rights so many Americans died to create and defend? Muslims, or the US Congress?

No terrorist in their wildest dreams could inflict as much damage on what the United States is supposed to stand for than the US Government, and those who would lie us into another war of conquest for profit.

We know who you war-mongers are. And we know what you stand for. And we have heard it all before.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."-- Leading Nazi leader, Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials before he was sentenced to death


In shutting off the comments, the StarAdvertiser is taking a giant leap backward from modern interactive media to the one-way media of the 1950s and 1960s. That it is delivered via computer is irrelevant; the attitude reverts to one of "We tell you what to think and you are not allowed to disagree."

Gulf Clean Up Contracts Expose Corruption as Usual

WASHINGTON — The federal government hired a New Orleans man for $18,000 to appraise whether news stories about its actions in the Gulf oil spill were positive or negative for the Obama administration, which was keenly sensitive to comparisons between its response and former President George W.

The government also spent $10,000 for just over three minutes of video showing a routine offshore rig inspection for news organizations but couldn't say whether any ran the footage. And it awarded a $216,625 no-bid contract for a survey of seabirds to an environmental group that has criticized what it calls the "extreme anti-conservation record" of Sarah Palin, a possible 2012 rival to President Barack Obama.

Handcuffs For Wall Street, Not Happy Talk

The Washington Post has published a very silly op-ed by Chrystia Freeland accusing President Barack Obama of unfairly “demonizing” Wall Street. Freeland wants to see Obama tone down his rhetoric and play nice with executives in pursuit of a harmonious economic recovery. The trouble is, Obama hasn’t actually deployed harsh words against Wall Street. What’s more, in order to avoid being characterized as “anti-business,” the Obama administration has refused to mete out serious punishment for outright financial fraud. Complaining about nouns and adjectives is a little ridiculous when handcuffs and prison sentences are in order.

10 Reasons Our Fresh Water Supply is in Deep Trouble

Jeffrey Green
Activist Post

Fresh clean water is essential to all life forms. It seems that a resource so vital should not be corralled, controlled, or corrupted by any corporation or government. However, with fresh water supplies under assault on multiple fronts, governments seek to further clamp down on individual human usage, while doing very little to reduce the reasons for the contamination. At the same time, corporations that repackage water and sell it back to the public enjoy financial benefits from the scarcity of their "product."

Gunning for Islam

Three people are dead because US "pastor" Terry Jones, in collaboration with the American media, staged (or threatened to stage) an anti-Muslim Koran-burning exhibition, which predictably stoked anti-American protests in Afghanistan: also predictably, US troops fired on demonstrators. The result: yet more "collateral damage."

When they shout: "We strongly condemn..."

On August 29, 2010, Martin Indyk wrote an op-ed in The New York Times entitled “For once, hope in the Middle East”. When I read it, I felt I should respond with an article that sheds light on the issues which Mr. Indyk has chosen to ignore. One of the premises he based his analysis on was that violence has receded in the Middle East in the past two years compared with the 1990s. Here, like most Western officials and journalists, Indyk ignores daily and persistent Israeli violence against Palestinians for the past sixty years which has risen to record levels in terms of the number and ferocity of Israeli crimes against Palestinian civilians in the past two years, particularly in the city of Hebron.

ERIC MARGOLIS: 9/11. THE MOTHER OF ALL COINCIDENCES

Ever since 9/11, readers keep asking me my views on these attacks. I have been barraged with emails until my head spins with engineering studies about melting steel, controlled explosions, claims about nefarious plots, and wreckage analysis.

One of the most colorful theories comes from Gen. Hamid Gul, former director of Pakistan’s intelligence agency, ISI. He insists that 9/11 was staged by Israel’s Mossad and a cabal of rightwing US Air Force generals.

When I broached him on it he said that his recollection was foggy so maybe it wasn’t like that. Meanwhile, the lie was filled with precise details that indicated no fogginess at all. I pointed this out. His next venture was to call attention to the fact that I have very little money and no seeming means of support (he’s an expert on my life apparently, though never having met me or been exposed to any of the inner workings of my day to day existence) and yet I criticize Israel all the time. This, he says, is proof that I am a disinfo agent. He insists he is not a troll while behaving just like one.

Rupert Murdoch's Paywall Disaster

Does International Law Have a Future?

Israel’s great power patron is the United States. This arrangement entails American protection of the Zionist state from the legal consequences that should result due to its purposeful harming of civilians. The United States, sitting as a permanent member of the UN Security Council has, in recent years, cast some forty vetoes so as to shield its ally from accusations of violations of international law. Actually this action by the United States is entirely logical. Why so? Because both the U.S. and Israel are practicing the exact same tactics against civilian populations.

The Jews of Iran are Far Better Off Than Palestinians of Gaza

There are 25,000 Jews in Iran, which is the largest Jewish population in the Middle East outside Israel. Iranian Jews are not persecuted or abused, in fact, they are protected under the Iranian constitution. They are free to practice their religion and to vote in elections. They are not stopped and searched at checkpoints, are not brutalized by an army of occupation and are not confined in a densely populated penal colony (Gaza) where they are deprived of the basic means of subsistence. Iranian Jews live in dignity and enjoy the benefits of citizenship.

The 'Meaning' of 9/11

One would think that after nine years at least some of the anger, the horror and shock of the 9/11 terrorist attacks would have dissipated: but no. A glimpse at the headlines, a few days before the somber anniversary, disabuses us of this hopeful notion: a crazed pastor out in the boonies somewhere is burning Korans, and the commander of our forces in Afghanistan feels compelled to respond, as does the President. The proposal to build a Muslim community center blocks from "ground zero" – modeled on Jewish community centers ubiquitous in New York – is met with furious opposition, and the "anti-Islamization" movement spearheaded by bigots takes off, with mosques all over the country under attack.

So far, the debate over the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero has unfolded along predictable lines, with the man at the center of the project, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, drawing attacks from the right painting him as a terrorist sympathizer with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

But meanwhile, links between the group behind the controversial mosque, the CIA and U.S. military establishment have gone unacknowledged.

Pentagon seeks to suppress book by 9/11 whistleblower

The US Department of Defense is negotiating with a major US publisher, St. Martin’s Press, to buy and destroy all 10,000 copies of a book written by a former Defense Intelligence Agency officer about his experiences in Afghanistan.

The author, Anthony A. Shaffer, a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve, reportedly repeats his declaration, first made in 2005, that US intelligence agencies had identified the leader of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Mohammed Atta, and three other suicide hijackers well in advance of September 11, 2001.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is a silly propaganda stunt. By claiming to oppose the book and buy it up, the government hopes you will view the book as containing something the government does not want you to read, so that you will accept the claim as fact.

That the book is pushing the official "Arabs did 9-11" myth is your first warning sign.

The second is history. In 1999, John F. Kennedy Jr. died is a highly suspicious plane crash. Shortly after, the The July 26th, 1999 issue of Newsweek was literally blocked from the news stands. There was no case of a rush to buy up all copies; the magazine was literally ordered off the delivery trucks and back to the warehouses for destruction. There was no huge media release of this erasure of the issue. The official story was that Newsweek wanted to replace the cover to deal with the plane crash, but that specific issue never appeared on the stands. What finally came out was that the issue had included an article in which John F. Kennedy Jr. had announced his intentions to run for the Senate seat later occupied by Hillary Clinton. Had Kennedy not died, there is no question that with his family name, good looks, and absence of cattle-trades and Mena in his background, he would have won.

So, the fact that the Pentagon buy up of this book is getting headline treament tell you this is a staged psyop to re-sell the official "Arabs did 9-11, honest!" story.

The disastrous attack was planned and realized by the American CIA and Mossad with the help of the Zionist world to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Former Italian Prime Minister Francesco Cossiga

"America’s fate was sealed when the public and the anti-war movement bought the government’s 9/11 conspiracy theory. The government’s account of 9/11 is contradicted by much evidence. Nevertheless, this defining event of our time, which has launched the US on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic police state, is a taboo topic for investigation in the media. It is pointless to complain of war and a police state when one accepts the premise upon which they are based."

Creation of 9-11Myth on 9-11

This will blow the lid on 911. HOw come the media knew so much about it only minutes after the first tower was hit. Why is that people still believe that planes could destroy those towers. What about the 7th building that colapsed by itself. What about all the original footage what showed people saying their heard explosions before the first plane hit. But they have been deleted never to be seen again. What about the films of actual demolitions that show a remarkable similarity to 911. Oh and then there is the laws of physics taking a day off on 911, that just doesn't happen. The Passport that was not even marked oh and gold that was under those towers were trillions of dollars that went missing yet the passport just was amazingly found.

For instance, in a recent Washington Post opinion piece, William Kristol described Obama’s West Point speech as “encouraging.” It was “a good thing,” he said, that Obama was finally speaking as “a war president.”

Today the Israel Lobby Archive releases correspondence between the Jewish Agency (a quasi governmental organization headquartered in Jerusalem) and the American Zionist Council which housed AIPAC as its lobbying division. The documents reveal quarterly $5,000 payments from the Jewish Agency to AIPAC for the lobbying newsletter "Near East Report" and stealth public relations programs to undermine American free speech. The implications are discussed in the radio interview.

Simon Wisenthal's Faked Holocaust Memoirs

One of the world's most famous Holocaust survivors is the Austrian Jew, Simon Wiesenthal, who, after being interned at the Mauthausen concentration camp during the war, devoted his life to hunting ex-Nazis the world over. Wiesenthal also has an organization, devoted to Jewish interests and promoting the mass extermination propaganda, named after him.

Yet it is a little known fact that Wiesenthal's own personal Holocaust memoirs, entitled "KZ Mauthausen, Bild und Wort" (Concentration Camp Mauthausen - pictures and words) which was published in 1946, contains one of the most blatant forgeries of all Holocaust memoirs.

“There’s also big money behind the mosque opposition, as highlighted by the relationship between [David] Horowitz’s Los Angeles-based nonprofit, Jihad Watch – the website run by Spencer “dedicated to bringing public attention to the role that jihad theology and ideology play in the modern world” – and Joyce Chernick, the wife of a wealthy California tech company founder.

Why I believe the king of the Nazi hunters, Simon Wiesenthal, was a fraud

I’m sorry, but this compassionate approach simply does not wash with me. For the truth is that the great Nazi hunter is far, far worse than Dr Segev makes out.

In my view, Simon Wiesenthal was a liar and a fraud. In fact, I’d go so far as to say he was one of the biggest conmen of the 20th century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just one example of Wiesenthal's deceptions.

Simon Wiesenthal was famous for this sketch of Jewish prisoners he claimed he witnessed being shot by the Germans.

But as it turns out, Simon Wiesenthal traced the drawing from the June 11, 1945 LIFE magazine illustration of German spies being executed by firing squad!

Add to that the recent revelation that Mossad funded Wiesenthal's propaganda operation, and the scale of the hoax becomes apparent.

So why was there a hoax, and why has it been perpetrated to this very day? The reason is actually quite simple.

In 1945, the world had united and spent much blood and treasure to stop Hitler on the principle that one people does not have the right to march into another people's home and steal it for their own use. Yet that is exactly what the founders of Israel wanted to do to Palestine, and continue to do to this very day!

In order to accomplish the goal of dispossessing the Palestinians of their lands to create Israel, a means had to be found to convince the world that what Hitler could not be allowed to do to Poland and France, Israel must be allowed to do to Palestine.

So a propaganda campaign was mounted that transformed Hitler's slave labor camps which contained prisoners of all races into death camps aimed solely at Jews, and the "need" for a Jews-only homeland was relentlessly promoted in the media until the world agreed that while no other nation on Earth should ever be allowed to steal another nation for their own use, Israel had to be granted special exception. (That practice of Israel being allowed to break the rules all other nations follow has persisted to this very day, as demonstrated by Israel's selling of nuclear weapons while all other nuclear nations are blocked form doing so by the NNPT, as well as the attack on Americans last May; a crime that would not be tolerated if carried out by any other nation.) Israel's propagandists even went so far as to claim that the nations that had united to stop Hitler were to blame for the purported mass deaths because they had not acted soon enough, therefore they had to "atone" with more money and their unhesitating blessing for the conquest of Palestine. Israel's propagandists even played up the Bible angle, claiming that God gave them those lands, even though the present day majority Ashkenazi (European and Russian) Jews are not the descendants of the biblical Hebrews, but of Khazars who converted in the 800s.

So Israel was created on the lands of the Palestinians, while the same world that had stopped Hitler from such conquests stood silent and impotent, paralyzed by a manufactured hallucination that the Palestinians were a necessary sacrifice to create a nation for the Jews.

It is time to face the fact that Israel was not the victim and Palestine not the villain in all of this. You got hoaxed, big time!

WASHINGTON — The U.S. was slow to take seriously the threat posed by homegrown radicals and the government has failed to put systems in place to deal with the growing phenomenon, according to a new report compiled by the former heads of the Sept. 11 Commission.

The publication of “Operation Dark Heart,” by Anthony A. Shaffer, a former Defense Intelligence Agency officer and a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve, has divided military security reviewers and highlighted the uncertainty about what information poses a genuine threat to security.

GORDON DUFF: AMERICA’S WORST KEPT 9/11 SECRET

DO THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS BLAME BUSH FOR 9/11?

I learned about 9/11 from the news. Before the second plane had crashed, people in the crowd told me and the rest of America it was Osama bin Laden and Arab hijackers trained in Afghanistan with the help of Saddam Hussein. A BBC reporter then told me Building 7 had just collapsed, though it was almost totally undamaged and standing 47 stories tall, right there on the TV screen behind her.

PRESS RELEASE: New Scientific Evidence Undermines Afghanistan War

On the eve of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, support for the war in Afghanistan took a serious blow today. Simultaneous press conferences were held in New York and Los Angeles to present startling new information refuting the official 9/11 narrative used to justify the war. Also announced were three major professional groups which have joined the worldwide, and ever-growing, “9/11 Truth Movement”.

In a striking show of unity, representatives of “Scientists for 9/11 Truth”, “U.S. Military Officers for 9/11 Truth” and “Actors & Artists for 9/11 Truth” presented their findings and unveiled their eye-opening websites. Each non-profit group has launched a petition calling for a new, transparent investigation.

FDA sends warning letters to e-cigarette companies

RICHMOND, Va. — The Food and Drug Administration is lighting a fire under the electronic cigarette industry to work with the agency to legally market the devices and is cautioning other companies that their sales and manufacturing practices violate federal law.

The FDA said Thursday it sent warning letters to five companies that make e-cigarettes or components for the plastic and metal devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution in a disposable cartridge, creating vapor that the "smoker" inhales.

'We are still determined': U.S. pastor vows to carry out Burn-a-Koran day on Sept 11 despite death threats

The leader of a tiny U.S. church said yesterday that he will defy international condemnation and go ahead with plans to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of September 11.

The Rev Terry Jones has been advised by the senior U.S. leader in Afghanistan, General David Petaeus, that the stunt would put American soldiers lives at greater risk and provide propaganda for the Taliban.

20 Signs That The Health Care Industry Has Become All About Making As Much Money As Possible

Once upon a time in America, people became doctors and nurses because they wanted to help people, building hospitals was a labor of love, lawyers didn't chase ambulances, health insurance companies did not openly abuse their customers and greedy pharmaceutical companies did not dominate the entire health care industry.

Khaled Meshaal Interview: Hamas Chief Weighs In on Eve of Peace Talks

Huffington Post Sharmine Narwani –

With pundits in most capitals already predicting failure for the US-brokered Palestinian-Israeli peace talks to begin on Thursday, it seems only natural to start asking the question:

“What’s next?”

To get a jumpstart on what surely will be an onslaught of new, competing narratives vying for prominence in the post-peace process era, I headed to Damascus to talk to a man who has predicted the failure of this process from the start. And yet who — against all logic — has never been invited to sit at the negotiating table.

FBI Admits No Evidence Linking Hijackers To 911

After seven months of non-stop declarations by U.S. government spokesmen that there exists solid proof tying 19 Muslim men to plotting the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, FBI Director Robert Mueller has now admitted quite the opposite.

That 19 Muslim men who have apparently disappeared have been named as the hijackers is not in doubt.

What is in doubt is whether those 19 men were actually plotting anything, either individually or together.

The amazing possibility remains that others carried out the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, using the identities of the 19 Muslims who have been assigned guilt in the tragedy.

Yahoo News: 1,270 Architects/Engineers Reveal Hard Evidence of Explosive Demolition at World Trade Center on 9/11

Former US Senator Mike Gravel (D-AK) and Richard Gage, AIA, Founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Discuss Scientific Findings

National Press Club, Washington DC, 2:00 pm, Thursday, September 9, 2010

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday September 9, 2010, Gravel and Gage will host a central press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, presenting hard evidence that all three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, in NYC were destroyed by explosive controlled demolition.

Senator Gravel notes, "Critically important evidence has come forward after the original government building reports were completed."

This press conference will be webcast at AE911Truth.org and hosted concurrently in cities throughout the world.* Following the conference, there will be a mock debate during which public statements made by government investigators and other defenders of the official account will be presented and responded to in multimedia format. "They refuse to debate us in person," says Gage, "so we will let their public statements represent them."

Lasers Pointed At Planes Near Selfridge Airport

Authorities said one person is being questioned in connection with two instances in which a handheld laser was aimed at the cockpit of two aircrafts near Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township.

There is something funny about all these laser-at-planes stories. First, actually getting such a beam to hit the cockpit windows with a hand-held unit is virtually impossible.

Gerald Celente: Obama wrong then, wrong now

In a speech on the US economy in Ohio, US President Barack Obama said he recognized that the recovery has been painfully slow and he called on congress to act by cutting taxes for businesses and middle-income Americans while raising rates rise for the rich. Obama is insistent on letting the Bush tax cuts expire. He also called for the enactment of his six-year infrastructure plan that would cost US taxpayers $50 billion in the first year alone. Is this a proposed second stimulus? Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute argues that Obama was wrong on the economy before and is wrong now. He failed, says Celente. Obama got his stimulus; he got healthcare. It's not the Republicans fault. It is Obama's, he got what he wanted and the economy is still in recession, explained Celente.

Supreme Court: Corporations Can Buy Judges

You've heard that a recent Supreme Court decision said that corporations can give unlimited funds to politicians.

But did you realize that it said that corporations can give unlimited money to judges?

As William K. Black - professor of economics and law, and the senior regulator during the S & L crisis - pointed out last week:

The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision allows businesses to make unlimited political contributions to judges and politicians. When judges are elected, the need for these contributions inherently turns judges into politicians.

“Demolish and Rebuild” Detroit: Fires Burn Nearly 100 Homes

State and city officials have been looking for a way to renew the city through an unspecified “demolish and rebuild” program. It had some heads nodding in agreement earlier this year, but such a program would be a political minefield to implement.

You cannot simply demolish a neighborhood that still has some active residents. Openly moving people by force would be a Stalinist tactic.

So while talking about a “demolish and rebuild” might sound bold and brave; implementing such a program would be politically unpopular, not to mention expensive.

Mother nature may have offered a helping hand or even, perhaps, a scapegoat.

The CIA officer wielded the bitless drill and an unloaded handgun - unauthorized interrogation techniques - to menace suspected USS Cole bombing plotter Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri inside a secret CIA prison in Poland in late 2002 and early 2003, according to several former intelligence officials and a review by the CIA's inspector general.

But the more I thought about it, the more it seemed to me that King Abdullah should do what Friedman suggested. In a moment I’ll get to what I think the Arabs and the Palestinians especially would have to gain without losing anything, but first here’s the essence of what Friedman wrote.

Gerald Posner sued over alleged "Miami Babylon" plagiarism

Disgraced writer Gerald Posner was slapped with a copyright suit today for allegedly stealing "significant portions" of his latest book.

Author Frank Owen alleges that Posner -- who gained fame for his 1993 investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy -- engaged in "numerous examples of word-for-word copying" to produce last year's "Miami Babylon: Crime, Wealth, and Power -- A Dispatch from the Beach."

Owen's Manhattan federal court suit seeks unspecified damages from Posner, who Owen claims in one section is "Eligible For The Guinness Book of World Records for Copyright Infringement."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Posner built a career attacking anyone who dared question the official story about anything, and it is good to see him finally getting his just reward.

Peculiar Posner

Gerald Posner? Isn't that the same name as the investigative journalist who resigned from the website Daily Beast after allegations surfaced of serial plagiarism? (The Miami New Times also provided examples that Posner "seems to add, subtract, or misattribute quotes" and displayed a series of such "apparently altered or misattributed quotes.") The letter to The Times puts this Gerald Posner's location as Miami Beach---where the Posner in question happens to live, so yes, it does seem to be the right person. Assuming Karzai didn't prefer to hire some unknown Gerald Posner from Miami. Which raises some more questions.

The events of 9/11 pervade the American and indeed the world imagination as an historical myth.
