IPCC consensus on climate change was phoney, says IPCC insider

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

“Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous,” the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered “the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism.”

Global warming book withdrawn

Millard Public Schools will stop using a children's book about global warming -- but only until the district can obtain copies with a factual error corrected.

A review committee, convened after parents complained, concluded that author Laurie David's book, "The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming," contained "a major factual error" in a graphic about rising temperatures and carbon dioxide levels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Brainwashing the children with the new religion of global warming.

Cashiering Helen Thomas

The termination of Helen Thomas' 62-year long career as a pioneering, no-nonsense newswoman was swift and intriguingly merciless.

The event leading to her termination began when she was sitting on a White House bench under oppressive summer heat. The 89-year-old hero of honest journalism and women's rights, the scourge of dissembling presidents and White House press secretaries, answered a passing visitor's question about Israel with a snappish comment worded in a way she didn't mean; she promptly apologized in writing. Recorded without permission on a hand video, the brief exchange, that included a defense of dispossessed Palestinians, went internet viral on Friday, June 4.

Obama Plans To Sneak Through Carbon Tax By Stealth

President Obama is planning to sneak through his job-killing, economy wrecking carbon tax by stealth according to the Washington Post, by passing a weakened bill and then adding in cap and trade provisions after the heat is off following the November elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government, the same government which has failed its oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, but is working hard to protect and defend that foreign nation that attacked Americans in international waters, is addicted to your money. Having ruined the economy with corporate giveaways, sees driving you down into Gaza-esque poverty and taking the surplus for themselves as their best course of action. As we noted yesterday, Obama is spending a billion dollars on ways to get Americans to give up cars and go back to bicycles or walking, just like they do in Gaza.

So, we are out of time, You need to decide. Will you allow the government to loot your life for their own addiction to money? Or is it time to stop throwing good money after bad.

FCC Moves to Regulate Internet--Even Though the Law Calls for Internet to be 'Unfettered by Federal or State Regulation'

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on Thursday to begin the formal process of bringing the Internet under greater federal control – a move sought by both President Barack Obama and FCC Chairnman Julius Genachowski--even though federal law calls for an Internet "unfettered by Federal or State regulation."

Terry Gross has no empathy for Palestinians

Terry Gross once ended an interview with Palestinian human rights lawyer Raja Shehadeh by asking whether he wanted to "mov[e] someplace else so that you wouldn't be subjected to this... Israeli incursion." Shehadeh retorted gently, "life...under Occupation" has "never been as difficult and as dangerous...and as frustrating as it is now. But, no, I will not leave." NPR transcript here.

Terry Gross boasts in her new ad that "often when I'm interviewing people on Fresh Air, they give me a different way of looking at the world," but her condescension to Shehadeh, a founder of Al-Haq (The Truth), shows how blind she is to Palestinian rights under International Law and how much she assumes Palestinians must make way for Israel's expansion.

Fox “news” continues CBS, ABC, CNN propaganda to attack Iran: today’s CIA Operation Mockingbird

In the video clip from Fox below, Bill Kristol advocates US military attack on Iran because he predicts that Israel will attack Iran. This is propaganda for an unlawful war for the following “emperor has no clothes” obvious reasons. Fox "reporting" is also a manipulative variation of the same war drone I’ve documented from CBS, ABC, and CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact is that absent a new World War, the US Government is finished (actually, a new world war will finish the US, but at least DC will go out with a wild party!)

The conventional view in Washington is that nothing revives fanatical patriotism among American taxpayers like a good bloodbath against, well, it doesn't really matter. We are going after this Arabs because Israel said to and because the Germans have been up at bat twice and are sick of being the global whipping boy.

The sad reality is that we cannot stop the next World War because all it takes is the least mentally stable leader to launch one missile and the whole world catches on fire, then the slaves are put back to work rebuilding it all again.

But what we can do and must do is deprive the attacker of the illusion that the intended target for invasion is somehow the villain.

Israel and the US media attempted to blame Turkey for Israel's attack on the aid flotilla in International waters. This is a repeat of the propaganda Bush used when he attacked Iraq, or Hitler used when he attacked Poland; "They made us do it, Mommy!"

‘Democracy’ Means the U.S. and Israel Approve

Thomas Friedman sure knows how to flip reality on its head. In his New York Times op-ed column today, Friedman hops on the bandwagon of bashing Turkey for "joining the Hamas-Hezbollah-Iran resistance front against Israel."

Friedman accuses Turkish Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan of no longer promoting democracy and instead being more focused on "praising Hamas instead of the more responsible Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, which is actually building the foundations of a Palestinian state."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ignoring the fact that HAMAS won the elections, right?

Here is the Israeli modus operandi.

Israsel creates and funds "opposition" parties in Palestine to prevent any one party from being seen as the leader of all Palestine. When Yassir Arafat led the PLO and PLO began to accept Israeli terms towards peace, Israel's Shin Bet created and funded HAMAS so that Israel could say, "We do not know who to talk to; there are two governments in Palestine!"

Then Arafat died (or was murdered), and Israel dropped supporting HAMAS. HAMAS, rather than fade away leaving Palestine in Chaos as Israel wanted, decided that since it was now the defacto government of Palestine they would act like one, much to the annoyance of the Israeli sponsors who had betrayed them.

So, Israel played the same game all over, creating and funding FATAH so that Israel could say, "We do not know who to talk to; there are two governments in Palestine!" And as soon as HAMAS is gone and FATAH is the power, Israel will drop support for Abbas and create yet a new opposition party to keep Palestine divided and conquered.

Stephen Lendman : End Gaza Siege

Resisting the Occupation and Siege
Millions worldwide demand it. So does the Arab League, according to an Al Jazeera June 13 report quoting Amr Moussa, Arab League secretary-general, saying:

“This blockade….must be lifted and must be broken and the Arab League decision is very clear in this regard.”

On June 13, Moussa commented after visiting Gaza for talks with Hamas Prime Minister, Ismail Haniyeh, Haaretz reporting he’s the highest Arab official to do so since Hamas’ 2006 election, after which an Israeli/West embargo followed, then the June 2007 siege.

Moussa entered through Rafah after Egypt reopened it following the Freedom Flotilla massacre, saying it will continue indefinitely.

Wiles : Rise People, Rise

By Rich Wiles

Through the recent murderous events in international waters Israel has once again shown its true colours and its total disregard for humanity. From the global reaction over the last week it seems that, for once, a huge majority of people around the world have seen these attacks in a clear light. Let us call a massacre a massacre. Whilst these atrocities have clearly appalled millions of people, the inhumanity of the Zionist regime should have come as no surprise, for this is nothing new.

Australian Parliament : Julia Irwin MP’s Adjournment debate speech and Minister Craig Emerson’s reply 16June10


Editors Note: Mrs Julia Irwin’s MP adjournment debate speech on 16th June, 2010 in the Australian Parliament and the Government minister Dr Craig Emerson’s shameful disassociation on behalf of the government at the conclusion of the adjournment debate.

If Craig Emerson’s comment reflects the Labor Party’s policy on this matter as Israel and its merciless treatment of the whole nation of Palestine is clearly reprehensible, then sadly the compromised parliamentarians both in Australia and in the US Congress is an indication that Israel has captured and is dictating the foreign policies of both countries and whereas one could once have expected an independent stance on matters of importance from Australia, such as the Middle East, this appears not to be the case.

PRESS TV: Franklin Lamb ‘Israeli inquiry into aid attack doomed to fail’

On May 31, Israeli navy commandos launched a deadly attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in international waters as the aid convoy was heading toward the besieged Gaza Strip, killing 20 people.

Defying repeated international calls for a transparent and credible probe into the incident, Israel’s cabinet approved the establishment of an “independent public commission” to probe the legal aspects of the deadly operation.

What follows is Press TV’s interview with Dr. Franklin Lamb, an international lawyer, about the investigation into the attack.

Press TV: Dr. Lamb, will the one-sided investigation by Israel be regarded as a legitimate one by the international community?

Isabel Kershner is the New York Times' correspondent in Israel, formerly of The Jerusalem Report and the wife of Hirsch Goodman.

The New York Times, whose regional bureau chief has a son in the Israeli military, reports that Israel has just appointed a panel charged with investigating its attack on an aid flotilla that killed nine aid volunteers, including a 19-year-old American.

Isabel Kershner, who is an Israeli citizen and has refused to answer questions about her possible family ties to the Israeli military, writes the report.

Alan Hart: Why Really Was The USS Liberty Attacked By Israel ?

The following is my keynote address to the annual re-union dinner of the Liberty Veterans’ Association – Long Island, 12 June 2010.

I want to begin by saying that though I covered wars wherever they were taking place on Planet Earth in my television reporting days – it was in Vietnam as a very young correspondent that I first started to ask myself questions about why things are as they are in the world – I am an Englishman and one who didn’t serve in his country’s armed forces. (Not because I was a draft dodger. Conscription had ended). So it is both an honour and a privilege for me to be with you this evening. And please believe me, I really mean it.

Climate junk hard to dump

The past six months has seen a series of unprecedented setbacks for the cause of catastrophic man-made climate change: the collapse of the Kyoto process; the release of incriminating Climategate emails; the discovery of the shoddy standards of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); the mounting evidence that a job-creating green industrial revolution is a fantasy; and the growing suspicion by the public that it has been sold a bill of goods.

The British Royal Society recently released a statement that "Any public perception that the science is somehow fully settled is wholly incorrect," thus contradicting its own former president, and true believer, Lord May. And if the science isn't settled, there can hardly ever have been "consensus" on the issue.

‘Anti-Semitism’ Charges Unleashed: Don’t Mention the Mavi Marmara

Since Israel’s May 31 attack on the Mavi Marmara aid ship, there has been growing criticism of Israel’s behavior across much of the world, including from traditional allies like Turkey.

Yet as this criticism has grown abroad, the pressure for Israel’s public to toe the official line on the story (whatever it may be at any given time) has also grown, and in the West there is an increasingly visible effort to lionize the Israeli attack and do demonize even perceived criticism of the Israeli government as “anti-semitism.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A perfect illustration of Israel's screaming "Anti-Semite" at every critic can still be seen at the StarAdvertiser (which has now blocked all further comments on the page).

"Israel is starving the Gazans."

A: "You're an anti-Semite!"

"Israel is committing war crimes."

A: "You're an anti-Semite!"

"Israel murdered an American."

A: "You're an anti-Semite!"

"Israel is in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention."

A: "You're an anti-Semite!"

"Israel is occupying Palestinian lands!"

MSNBC In Cover-Up Of Manifestly Provable Population Control Plan

A perfect example of an issue that Matthews and his ilk want to sideline is the manifestly provable fact that elitists have for decades publicly stated their desire to reduce global population by around 80 per cent and as much as 99 per cent.

During MSNBC’s Hardball show on Tuesday, Corn characterized the notion that “there is a planetary elite that literally has a secret plan to kill 80 to 99 percent of the population,” as a conspiracy theory

White House Correspondent Helen Thomas—A Casualty of Zionist Duplicity

By James M. Rockefeller

Zionist operatives ambushed veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas, a friend and a great American. When they won, America lost.

When reviewing the unedited video of her “interview,” what you see is a rabbi rephrasing her answers to a question about Israel. Her response: “They should get the hell out of Palestine.“ The United Nations long ago endorsed that stance.

It was not Thomas but the rabbi that offended the Jewish community. Language cited as “anti-Semitic” came not from her but from responses that the rabbi restated as leading questions. She simply spoke the truth: Jewish settlers should leave the occupied territories and, as she rightly said: “go home.”

Obama’s Oval Office speech: A cowardly cover-up of BP’s crimes

President Obama’s Oval Office speech Tuesday night on the Gulf oil disaster was a cowardly exercise in evasion and cover-up that could have been written by the publicity department of BP.

The 18-minute speech, coming on the 57th day of the worst environmental catastrophe in US history, provided no concrete assessment of the causes of the oil spill or the dimensions of the crisis—in terms of damage either to the ecosystem or the economy.

The speech represented a complete capitulation to BP and corporate power. Anyone who expected that Obama would use the occasion to provide the American people with an honest accounting of the disaster and the culpability of BP had to be sorely disappointed.

Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top American commander in the Mideast, appeared to faint Tuesday while testifying before the U.S. Senate.

As he was being questioned by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Petraeus slumped over, looked dazed and was assisted by aides who rushed to his side. A few seconds later, he quickly sat upright again and then left the room under his own power.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of U.S. voters describe themselves as at least somewhat angry at the media, including 33% who are Very Angry.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 31% say they are not angry at the media, but that includes just nine percent (9%) who say they are not at all angry.

The Helen Thomas' Resolution by Gilad Atzmon

Helen Thomas, the 89 years old doyenne of the White House press corps, sketched it in one sentence. When asked by a Rabbi holding a camera: "where should Israelis go", she said Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine”. When the Rabbi challenged her, she made it plainly clear: “they should go home to Poland, Germany, America and elsewhere”

Thomas was quick to be reminded who runs Capitol Hill. A global war was declared against her. She had to resign and to apologise. However, her brief yet transparently clear solution is sound and should be elaborated upon.

The Case for an Impartial Turkish Inquiry

By Ahmed Amr

By now anyone paying attention understands the broad outlines of Israel’s notion of what constitutes an ‘impartial’ inquiry into the murder of nine activists on the Free Gaza Flotilla. Except for Netanyahu and the cabinet ministers who ordered the armed assault on the humanitarian convoy, no other witnesses will be called. The Israelis now say their inquiry will not even take testimony from the IDF commanders who planned and executed the assault or the seven hundred first hand witnesses who survived the carnage. Besides, the activists have already been deported.

The New McCarthyism

Once again vast sums of money are being spent on a war, this time a hot one and getting hotter. Once again parties with a vested interest are out to smear and destroy anyone who dares ask if the wars are worth the sacrifice of our young people (not to mention the money), indeed if there really is any point at all to the wars aside from justifying the flow of money to defense contractors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was looking in on the comments posted after my letter was published in the Star-Advertiser. Mostly I was checking to see if a follow-up by myself that included links to support the arguments being made was allowed by the moderator (it wasn't). But I could not help but notice that Israel's defenders, the "Megaphonies" had piled into the discussion and unable to come up with substantive arguments to support Israel's right to commit murder in international waters had fallen back on the old standard of screaming "Nazi" and "Anti-Semite."

So I am reposting this story about how "Anti-Semite" is just a repeat of "communist" used to silence critics of government policy in times past and I ask you repost this everywhere you see Israel's minions screaming about Nazis and anti-Semites.

PROPAGANDA ALERT - Iran 'definitely' building nuclear weapon

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is a good lesson in media propaganda. First, the story headline...

"Iran 'definitely' building nuclear weapon "

Note the use of the word 'definitely'.

Now, the opening paragraph of the body of the story.

Due to concern over potentially harmful international political implications, U.S. officials will only say they "believe" Iran is engaged in a clandestine program that may yield a nuclear weapon.

Most readers will glance at the headline only and come away convinced that Iran is 'definitely' building a nuclear weapon even though the story is pure conjecture from the usual anonymous sources from the "US Ally", meaning Israel.

In an interview with Paul Jay of The Real News

Former Presidential candidate Ralph Nader launched a scathing critique of US media and politicians for what he said was “Professional Execution,” over the sudden retirement of senior White House correspondent Helen Thomas after she made remarks critical of Israel that were considered offensive to Jews.

Nader said American pundits had gotten away with much worse comments about Muslims and Arabs. “antisemitism against arabs is rife in politics today,” he said.

“How about Ann Coulter? she didn’t lose a 30,000 dollar speech? She didn’t lose her column, and she said horrific things about going over there and slaughtering Muslims, if they can’t be converted to christianity, she added.”

Regardless of what you may think of Erdogan, and he has many detractors (I am not one), he is certainly establishing himself as an influential world leader who must be reckoned with in an emerging multi-polar world.

Cockburn’s report is must reading, because Erdogan has maneuvered himself onto the moral high ground in a very serious crisis he did not create. Consider please the following:

Thank you Helen Thomas for telling the truth

Dr. Salim Nazzal

Thank you Helen Thomas that you ended your long and successful career by telling the truth about Palestine. Your few words summarized the whole conflict. Your few words made the right diagnosis for all the wars that have taken place in the Middle East. The reason for all these wars is obvious now to anyone with eyes, the establishment of the state of Israel at the expense of the indigenous Palestinians. Can anyone imagine how the Middle East would have been without Israel? There would be no wars, no conflicts, no racist ideology, no atomic arms, and no arms race with all the side effects of such militarization of the region. Religious fanatics would most likely never have emerged.

Mohamed Khodr – The Israelites: From Slaves in the East to the Master Race of the West

After 2,500 years the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel have been found in their true Promised Land-America– their land of milk, honey, money, weapons, vetoes, and extraordinary control and influence over the gentile “greatest” giant.

“On the morrow of a persecution in Europe in which they had been the victims of the worst atrocities ever known, the Jews’ immediate reaction to their own experience was to become persecutors in their turn. In 1948, the Jews knew, from personal experience, what they were doing; and it was their supreme tragedy that the lessons learnt by them from their encounter with the Nazi German Gentiles should have been not to eschew but to initiate some of the evil deeds that the Nazis had committed against the Jews”

American Smuggled Back Video of Israel's Behavior During Flotilla Massacre

The world is slowly absorbing the real magnitude of the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla to aid Gaza. A filmmaker as it turns out, was able to smuggle an hour of raw video back to the USA and two versions, a 15-minute edited video, and the full 60-minutes of raw video, are both published below.

Cultures of Resistance director Iara Lee was aboard the besieged Mavi Marmara and has since returned home safely.

I would consider her to be one of the bravest and most successful filmmaker/documentarians in the world. Nobody expected this, the amount of gunfire from Israel's military is unbelievable, horrifying.

BP bailout proposal coming soon

Get ready for the BP bailout debate.

FLOTILLA ACTIVISTS:US Congress out of touch with World on Israel Policy[VIDEO]

American activists who supported, organized, or were on the flotilla headed to Gaza with humanitarian aid stormed the office of U.S. Congressmen Brad Sherman and turned themselves in for their “crimes.” The stunt was in response to Sherman’s call for Americans on the flotilla to be arrested for helping “terrorists.”

It illustrates the disconnect between a U.S. Congress who supports Israel unrelentingly, a White House that calls policies in Gaza unsustainable, and an international community condemning Israel’s raid of the flotilla.

Israel: Strategic Ally or Liability?

The claim that Israel serves as a valuable ally for the United States is made by both pro-Zionists and much of the anti-war and anti-Zionist Left that is influenced by Noam Chomsky. As a result of the Gaza flotilla massacre, which has caused a world-wide uproar against Israel, the value of Israel to the United States is being publicly questioned in more mainstream foreign policy forums.

Joe Biden In Israel’s Service

Israel appears to be in more serious trouble diplomatically than at any time in its history following the botched attack by an “elite” commando squad on the Mavi Marmara in the early morning hours of June 1 that left at least nine dead and scores wounded. Thanks to Al-Jazeera and Iran’s PressTV, whose reporters were aboard the ship, much of the world was able to watch the attack unfold on its TV and computer screens and the result has been an avalanche of outrage and ongoing protests against the Jewish state. Within Israel this has led to finger-pointing and calls for resignations while its hasbara machinery has gone rapidly into damage-control and disinformation mode.

Alison Weir: As Israel Kills and Maims, Outrage is Directed at Helen Thomas

Whenever Israel commits yet another atrocity, its defenders are quick to redirect public attention away from the grisly crime scene.

Currently, there are headlines about allegedly anti-Semitic comments made by senior White House correspondent Helen Thomas. Pundits across the land evince outrage at her off-the-cuff 25-second statement made to a man who appears to be holding a camera right in her face.

Thomas issued a public apology for her words, but this was insufficient to assuage the wounded feelings of powerful antagonists, and she has now retired from a long and distinguished career.

Before we examine her comments and evaluate their possible validity, let’s look at other recent events having to do with Israel.

Israel: Strategic Ally or Liability?

The claim that Israel serves as a valuable ally for the United States is made by both pro-Zionists and much of the anti-war and anti-Zionist Left that is influenced by Noam Chomsky. As a result of the Gaza flotilla massacre, which has caused a world-wide uproar against Israel, the value of Israel to the United States is being publicly questioned in more mainstream foreign policy forums.

Writing shortly before the massacre, the always astute Philip Giraldi critically analyzed the claim of Israel’s value to the United States in “The Strategic Ally Myth,” which focuses on a recent article by Israel Firster Mort Zuckerman entitled, “Israel Is a Key Ally and Deserves U.S. Support.”

Unite votes to boycott Israel

By Jonathan Kalmus

Britain’s largest union, Unite, has unanimously passed a motion to boycott Israeli companies at its first policy conference in Manchester on Wednesday.

The motion, which passed unanimously, called the union “to vigorously promote a policy of divestment from Israeli companies”, while a boycott of Israeli goods and services will be “similar to the boycott of South African goods during the era of apartheid”.

Reflecting the University and College Union’s call at their Manchester conference earlier in the week, Unite will similarly host a “Palestine conference” to support trade union action against Israel.

Clinton Catalyzed Gulf Oil Drilling Boom

All three Administrations - Clinton, Bush, and Obama - bear the blame for this abject failure. None took the danger of a massive spill seriously or sought to hold up the massive expansion of off shore drilling until failsafe measures could be developed.

But, as with the subprime crisis, policy initiatives taken during the Clinton years - with the best of motives - were implemented without adequate regulation and without due consideration of the dangers involved. We are now suffering mightily for this failure of foresight and planning.

Israel's Gaza blockade: letting the chips fall where they may

Alan Sabrosky argues that Israel's withholding of food items such as potato chips from Gaza indicates that its strategy is “designed to hurt Palestinians and not to protect Israelis", and that although the Palestinians are now the victims of Israel's "affinity for dominance and inflicting deaths of a thousand cuts", others’ turn will come unless the rogue Jewish state is reined in.

”Too many of us – myself once included – for too long have viewed Israelis as just a particularly nasty variant of a type often seen in the world, something like semi-Semitic Prussians or an apartheid-era South Africa of the Middle East. They are not. They are much worse, and much more dangerous to all of us…”

In fact, people on the ground say things are out of control in the gulf.

Even worse, as my latest week of adventures illustrate, BP is using federal agencies to shield itself from public accountability.

Turkey is Media’s Latest Target for Alleged ‘Terror’ Ties

The Israeli raid on the Gaza flotilla that resulted in the deaths of eight Turkish citizens and one Turkish-American has led Israel and its supporters to argue that the Turkish government and a prominent Turkish humanitarian organization are “terrorist” sympathizers with ill intentions toward Israel and the United States. In a series of articles, the U.S. corporate press has joined in.

How BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil find was originally reported in September 2009

Below are a few media reports from September 2009 discussing the BP Gulf of Mexico Tiber Oil Field find when it originally hit the newswires. This was the deepest oil and gas well in human history, going to a depth of 35,000 feet. Exploratory drilling began in March 2009. Deepwater Horizon did not commence until September 2009. Only the second story from Bloomberg hints at the "volatility" related to the find and the need for "caution."

Video Shows Israeli Commando Executing American

Original posting:

The Israeli military attempted to confiscate and erase the photographic and video evidence of its brutal asault on the Mavi Marmara aid ship on Memorial Day. But it turns out that digital images can often be recovered after erasure, and can be put on small memory sticks that can be hidden in nooks and crannies of luggage. So some images are in fact surfacing.

The most damaging is a film of an Israeli soldier kicking an American citizen while the latter is on the ground,and then executing him. This film completely refutes the rightwing Israeli government’s narrative of besieged lightly armed troops haplessly fending off naked aggression on the part of the aid workers. The video, which has not been confirmed, is now at Youtube:

Ethanol dream evaporates

Corn farmers in the area chipped in $5,000 to $300,000 each -- some even mortgaged their farms -- to form the Central Illinois Energy Cooperative. They broke ground on the refinery in 2006, hoping that ethanol would bring higher prices for their corn and more jobs for Canton, which has been hurting since International Harvester closed its plow factory in 1983.

But the ethanol plant was a poor replacement. Central Illinois Energy, the corporation that built the plant, went bankrupt in December 2007 without producing a drop of fuel, hurt by construction delays and $40 million in cost overruns. The 260 farmers in the co-op lost every dime.

Some Thoughts to Consider on Helen Thomas & the Penalty for Criticising Israel

Actually, lemme back up a sec, cause that’s the latest spin. The initial spin was when the Israeli commandos boarded the ship they were facing an ‘armed militia’ which caused them to shoot. The only problem was no weapons were found. This led to Israel changing up again. This time they said they switched the story and said the folks on the ship came at them with metal pipes, rushed them and made them fearful for their lives hence 11 people had to be killed including an American citizen..

Based on this evidence, two Marine landing teams went into Danang and a week after that the American air force began regular bombing of North Vietnam.” An invasion that took three million lives was under way.

Ilan Pappé: The deadly closing of the Israeli mind

The decline in Israel’s reputation since the brutal attack on the Gaza flotilla is unlikely to influence the country’s leaders.

At the top of Israel’s political and military systems stand two men, Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu, who are behind the brutal attack on the Gaza flotilla that shocked the world but that seemed to be hailed as a pure act of self-defence by the Israeli public.

Although they come from the left (Defence minister Barak from the Labour Party) and the right (Prime Minister Netanyahu from Likkud) of Israeli politics, their thinking on Gaza in general and on the flotilla in particular is informed by the same history and identical worldview.

Feeling the Heat in Tel Aviv: By Max Blumenthal

On June 1, 2010, thousands of Israelis gathered spontaneously in front of the Turkish Embassy in Tel Aviv to demonstrate in support of the Israeli Naval commando unit that killed nine passengers on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish-backed boat from the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. Egged on by the Israeli government and media, the demonstrators lashed out at Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his support of the Marmara, accusing him and passengers on the ship of terrorist ties. Besides with the massacre of Turkish aid workers, the spectacle of massive Israeli protests against Turkey threatens to permanently rupture Israel’s ties to its closest Muslim ally and further isolate the country on the world stage.

The little old lady who sits in the front row at Presidential press conferences and asks the questions that the other reporters are too scared to ask. A journalist who truly challenges politicians, who wants them to be able to explain and justify their decisions and positions, whose most valued question is ‘why.’ Now she has been hounded into quitting the job that was her life. Her agent for speaking engagements has summarily dropped her. She is being vilified by many and lauded by others but no matter what, we believe that she is owed a huge debt of respect and gratitude for the work she’s done in the name of true democracy.

There is a reason Jon Stewart has such an intact comedy news throne. He's well educated, always current, a sharp wit; he's funny, and he's the right religion. In my mind's eye, Stewart's face keeps blurring with Ted Nugent's, and those of other heroes who have eventually shown their real colors. The reason is simple: these are the pop culture sellouts.

I could care less what religion he or anyone else is, until it starts getting in the way of the human race, which it did in last night's program where he rips into veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas.

Thanks, Helen, for telling it like it is!

Thanks and hugs from all, Helen Thomas, 89-year old, oft-referred to “dean of the White House press corps,” who retired today, Monday, moments after the parroting White House Correspondents Association said it was considering stripping her of her front row press briefing room seat. What brought on their echoing ire?

Well, it was as simple as Helen suggesting back in May that Israeli Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and return to Germany and Poland “or wherever they came from.” Bless you, Helen, for claiming your rights of free speech and the press, constitutionally granted to you, and telling the violent if not psychopathic state of Israel where to go. I personally would have suggested hell, a more fitting place for these lying, two-faced lunatics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fastest way to bring down a dictatorship is to force them to act like one where everyone can see it. Israel fell into that trap a week ago, and like a Mammoth doomed to extinction stuck in the La Brea tar pits, struggles in vain to extricate itself.

Her words were misinterpreted and for the most part taken out of context, a normal exercise of the zionists.
When asked, ‘where should they [the Jews] go’, Thomas replied, ‘go home, Poland, Germany, and America, and everywhere else.’
That simply became ‘go home to Poland and Germany’.

The reality is….
Meir Kahane … Brooklyn
Baruch Goldstein … Brooklyn
Baruch Marzel … Brooklyn
Mike Guzovsky … American born

Helen Thomas a victim of American media bias

Helen Thomas answered the questions right, but the so-called mainstream media and Israel supporters in the United States shamelessly pounced on this 89-year-old lady who will be 90 in August and accused her of indulging in “anti-Semitism” when in fact she was not. Helen Thomas did not say or mean that Jews should leave West Jerusalem, Haifa, Yafa, Tel Aviv and Nazareth and go back to Germany or Poland, as the media made it out to be. The context of her words was, in fact, a reference to the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem by Israel since 1967.

Helen Thomas' statement does not differ much from the official US policy that considers the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem illegal.

Of course this will backfire. The corporate media seems to forget that the majority of their web traffic comes from bloggers and news aggregators. Their dwindling readership/viewership sis caused by their lack of integrity.

Helen Thomas always asks the right questions! That is why she is known as a “top US journalist.”

Helen Thomas, 89, began her long career with the wire service United Press International in 1943, and started covering the White House in 1960, according to a biography posted on her website. She became a columnist for Hearst in 2000. She (born August 4, 1920) is an American news service reporter, a Hearst News papers columnist, member of the White House Press Corps and author. She served for fifty-seven years as a correspondent and, later, White House bureau chief for United Press International (UPI). Thomas covered 10 U.S. Presidents.

On June 8, 1967, while sailing in international waters, the US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was attacked by air and naval forces of the state of Israel. Of the Liberty’s crew of 294, more than half were killed or wounded. More than 40 years later, survivors are still seeking justice.

The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that the Liberty was an American ship, yet survivors have been forbidden to tell their story under oath to the American public.....

Journalist Helen Thomas quits amid Israel furor

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ABCNNBBCBSPBSFOX now join the ranks of those institutions that place the interests of a foreign power ahead of the American people.

Helen Thomas is actually correct. Israel does occupy Palestine, and the Ashkenazi Jews that form the majority of Israel's population are not native to the region.

But just as there can be no politicians that dare to tell the truth about Israel to Americans, so too there can be no corporate journalists that dare to tell the truth about Israel to Americans, which I guess is why you are HERE reading this rather than getting your brains sucked out by ABCNNBBCBSPBSFOX.

Helen is a woman of courage, but sadly we live in a society where courage is punished while cowering in fear before Israel is the path to wealth and fame.

What NOAA wants us to believe about hurricanes and the mess in the Gulf

From their recent glib PDF. With commentary.

Will there be oil in the rain related to a hurricane?

No. Hurricanes draw water vapor from a large area, much larger than the area covered by oil, and rain is produced in clouds circulating the hurricane.

IDF admits doctoring audio of raid on Gaza flotilla

The IDF's latest version of the audio is actually the third version the military organization has released. Its first audio version of the incident, a one-minute clip released the day of the raid, did not include any of the controversial comments -- no voices can be heard saying "Go back to Auschwitz" or "remember 9/11."

Critics of Israel have suggested the audio clip -- and the IDF's admission it was edited -- shows the Israeli military is involved in a propaganda campaign to discredit the flotilla as a humanitarian effort. And Blumenthal notes that the IDF audio has already made its way into US media as fact.

Yahoo slipped, fell, handed your email contact list to third parties.

You did want the upgrade, didn't you?

Oh yes. No warning. This feature is opt-out, so woe betide all who eschew webmail; little will they know, buffered as they are by Thunderbird or Outlook, that their entire social network information has just been plundered, only to be relinked, visualized, mined. Opting-out procedure is of course non-intuitive. Info at link.

Helen Thomas high school speech canceled over flap

A high school graduation speech by veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas has been canceled because of controversial remarks she made about Israel, the school's principal said in an e-mail Sunday.

Thomas had been scheduled to speak at the June 14 graduation of Walt Whitman High School, but Principal Alan Goodwin wrote in the e-mail to students and parents that she was being replaced. The school in the Washington suburb of Bethesda, Md., hasn't picked a new speaker.

"Graduation celebrations are not the venue for divisiveness," Goodwin wrote.

Our Enemies, the Israelis: When will we wake up to the threat?

By Justin Raimondo

One of my readers, in the comments section below, wrote the following in response to my last column on Israel’s hijacking of the Gaza flotilla: “Again I ask the question: What do the Israelis have on our politicians that makes them such whores? Dirty pictures? Threats of withholding campaign contributions? It’s really embarrassing as well as infuriating to see congress with its collective pants down around their legislative ankles just waiting for Israel to do it again.”

Not that there’s anything wrong with that …

An Exclusive on: Israel’s Dr. Strangelove – Uzi Arad

This is the man who probably should be criminally indicted for Israel’s high-seas massacre of people on the Peace Flotilla.The latest total is 64 badly wounded, killed, or missing.Turkey, Egypt, and other countries should certainly blacklist him from any further visits. He is Israel’s Dr. Strangelove.
Like with so many other sensitive things about Israel, the question needs to be asked: Why are the major US newspapers and TV networks not telling the American people about Uzi Arad, arguably the most important and most dangerous man in Israel when it comes to war and peace, the man who really has his finger on Israel’s nukes, the man who has publicly threatened to totally destroy Iran, as well as the man thought to be most responsible for the 31 May massacre?

Social Crisis in America. Coming Soon: Corporate Town Halls Against Social Security

Take for instance Social Security. The corporate-elite have written tirelessly on this subject recently. They agree that it should be reduced, and that you should wait until you reach an older age before receiving it. Working people disagree.

Thus, a series of national “town halls” has been organized to convince people of the “necessity” of this policy ( The stated purpose is to have a national “discussion” to figure out ways to best deal with the nation’s budget deficit.

But instead of the government organizing these town halls, the corporate establishment will – a fact that reveals much about the deterioration of democracy in the U.S.

The Jerusalem Post Should Fire Caroline Glick for Making a Racist Video

Its title is, 'We Con the World,' sung to the tune of 'We are the World.'

However, the video's keffiyah (headscarf) wearing, knife-wielding 'Arabs' and other members of the 'Flotilla Choir' clearly aren't Turks or Gazans. They're Jewish Israelis singing "there's no people dying" about the Gaza humanitarian-aid flotilla, in which nine people were killed last Monday by Israeli commandos, and many others were shot. A 19-year-old American aboard was shot five times at close range.

Swine ’flu and Big Pharma: why is there no scandal?

When it emerged that a billion pounds had been wasted in this outrageous boondoggle, no one apologised. Now we learn that some of the scientists who drew up the guidelines had been in the pay of the pharmaceutical corporations that stood to gain from the stockpiling.

This revelation has received less than a thousandth of the media coverage that attended the original “epidemic”. Why is there not more sense of scandal? Are health correspondents embarrassed about the role they played in stoking the panic? Or is it simply that health scares sell more newspapers than government bungling?

Congressional Record: JP Morgan & Co purchased all major media for propaganda: 1917. And now…?

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

Congressman Oscar Callaway lost his Congressional election for opposing US entry into WW 1. Before he left office, he demanded investigation into JP Morgan & Co for purchasing control over America’s leading 25 newspapers in order to propagandize US public opinion in favor of his corporate and banking interests, including profits from US participation in the war. Mr. Callaway alleged he had the evidence to prove Morgan associates were working as editors to select and edit articles, with the press receiving monthly payments for their allegiance to Morgan.

After two days in an Israeli jail, 64-year-old Paul Larudee speaks out...

Sixty-four-year-old Paul Larudee, an American citizen and longtime pro-Palestinian activist, was on board one of the ships carrying humanitarian relief to Gaza that was raided by the Israeli navy on Monday. He dove into the Mediterranean Sea, only to be captured and held in an Israeli prison for two days.
This was not Larudee’s first brush with Israeli authorities, but it was easily his most dramatic. He spoke with Salon about the raid and his captivity this afternoon from Greece, where he arrived after being released by Israel.

I have for many years understood that we, people of conscience, are the true holders of power in this world.
