Israeli gunmen invade Palestinian buildings

Armed Israel settlers have invaded Palestinian-owned buildings and lands designated by the Palestinian Authority for the construction of the first centrally-planned Palestinian town called Rawabi.

Around 60 settlers associated with the group “Youth for the Land of Israel” attempted to take over the area hanging Israeli flags on the buildings.

Russia: two suicide bombers kill 12 in Dagestan

Two suicide bombers including one impersonating a police officer have killed at least 12 people and injured 18 others in the southern Russian province of Dagestan on Wednesday, officials said.

Why do I get the feeling this is Isreal's doing in response to Russia not going along with sanctions against Iran?

Prosecutor: Undercover FBI agent infiltrated militia

An undercover federal agent infiltrated a Christian militia group that authorities say plotted to incite violent revolt, and the agent built explosives under the direction of the group's suspected ringleader, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the FBI informant actually built the bombs, without which there is no crime.

Navarro-Valls on the Abuse Crisis

The Holy See press office director under John Paul II, Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls, has today criticized the media for “a raging phobia” against the Church over pedophilia while ignoring the problem in the rest of society which he says is widespread.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the "everyone fucks children - get off our back" defense.

Catholics have spared no pains to flood my mailbox with emails reminding me that the Talmud condones sex with children. There is also an organization, NAMBLA, which also has an agenda favoring sex with children.

Now, it occurs to me that all three entities, Talmudists, NAMBLAns, and Catholics might be screwing little children, but only two of them, Talmudists and NAMBLA, are honest and up front about what they want.

What is fueling the rage against the Catholic Church is that they are saying one thing but doing something entirely different, and when caught breaking not only their own declared rules but the civil laws as well, held themselves to be above the laws and covered up the scandals for decades.

It's that "Holier than thou" attitude and the hypocrisy it conceals that has really pissed people off. And the Pathetic spin being put forward is only making matters worse.

Slavoj Žižek: Beware the ‘true friends of the idea of ascent’

During the recent healthcare “debate” in the US, advocates of universal coverage were ridiculed as silly dreamers. ‘Given the current political/socio-economic climate’ – so the thinking goes – ‘the idea of covering every man woman and child is so completely implausible that anyone who demands it is guilty of impeding critical progress. If the passage of this reform covers more of society’s underprivileged, it’s a WIN for progressives’, they say. [...] By this line of reasoning striking down a crappy bill and taking a few steps back down the mountain is seen as irrational and inhumane. But as Slavoj Zizek argues in the passage above, these “true friends of the idea of ascent” aren’t really worth listening to.

Synapse on a Chip

The memristor — the so-called “missing link of electronics” memory technology that can change its resistance in varying levels — has been around on paper for nearly 40 years. However it wasn’t until 2010 that a group at the University of Michigan led by Dr. Wei Lu demonstrated that it can be used to build brain-like computers in a paper just published in Nano Letters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the inaccuracies of an analog computer at the speed of digital circuitry!

Seriously, you can simulate a neuron with present day technology if you realize that a neuron is not a simple wire but a a tiny processor; a "state-machine" with a bus width of however many neurotransmitters it responds to (about 56 for the normal human brain.)

CA Banks: Who Are They Working For?

Does it seem right to you that a state's ability to stay afloat should be the stuff of secretive betting pools? That's just what's happening. While states like California struggle to pay their teachers, librarians and cops, traders are gambling -- by buying credit default swaps -- on the fate of our biggest state. And that's just half the story.

The very same banks that sell and profit off the swaps, at the same time underwrite and price the state's assets -- their municipal bonds. That means that even as JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup deal out the bonds that the state issues to raise cash, they're making money, separately, on the risks involved. They get their fees coming and going.

St. Louis priest admits child porn, seeking sex with teen

The former pastor of St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church, in south St. Louis, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a federal charge of possessing child pornography, and admitted that he tried to pay for sex with a 16-year-old girl.

The Rev. James Patrick Grady, 58, was nabbed in an FBI pedophile sting last summer, in which he had agreed to pay $80 for oral sex. Investigators later discovered child porn on his laptop computer, which had been purchased by his parish.

Great-grandmother given an electronic tag and curfew for selling a goldfish to a 14 year-old

A great-grandmother has been ordered to wear an electronic tag for breaching new animal welfare laws by selling a goldfish to a 14 year-old boy.

Joan Higgins, a pet shop owner, was caught selling the fish to the teenager in a 'sting' operation by council officials. She was then prosecuted in an eight month court process estimated to have cost the taxpayer more than £20,000.

Under new animal welfare laws, passed in 2006, it is it illegal to sell goldfish to under 16s. Offenders can be punished with up to 12 months in prison.

Torture humans? No problem!!

Invade non-aggressive countries, and kill innocents? No problem!!

Sell a goldfish to a 14 year-old? Slap 'em with a ten week curfew, an electronic tag, and 1750 in fines.

Rabbi Marvin Hier’s Los Angeles-based Museum of Tolerance, part of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is building a $150 million branch in Jerusalem. The Museum, whose mission is confronting “global anti-Semitism, extremism, hate … and promoting unity and respect among Jews and people of all faiths,” is being built atop part of the Mamilla Muslim cemetery, some of whose burials date to the 11th century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not mere callous indifference to the dead. A Muslim cemetery dating back to the 11th Century is a reminder that Israel are the newcomers to this land they claim is eternally theirs.

Paul Krugman Government will save a lot of money with death panels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is how the government plans to get itself out of the financial mess it is in.

Starting back in the Clinton administration, the cash build-up in Social Security, intended to cover the retirements of the Baby Boomer generation, was looted in order to cover the then-already out of control Federal budget. This was called a "loan", but the loan was made during a period claimed to be an economic boom time, which means there was never going to be an economy generating enough tax revenues to repay that loan any time soon, and sure enough, in the present economy, repayment of this "loan" is impossible.

Now the US Government, like the Vatican, operates from behind an imposed illusion of infallibility. The President, like the Pope, cannot admit error lest the sheep lose faith and stop tossing money into those collection plates/1040 forms. Anything bad that happens gets blamed on Satan or Iran, while credit is taken for anything good that happens. Both institutions charge money to intercede with nature, promising escapes from death and global warming (in exchange for obedience and a fee),and both attack critics as heretics and dissidents.

So, like the Pope trying to deal with the sexual abuse case the US Government finds itself in a box. It has embezzled and spent the retirement fu8nds of millions of Americans, But because of the illusion of infallibility the government cannot admit the cupboard is bare. Clearly, the government's financial woes would be greatly diminished if the vast majority of elderly Americans did not survive long enough to demand their full Social Security benefits.

Which is the real meaning behind the observation that the death panels will save the government a huge amount of money.

Cops vs. Kids

It is to be expected that two adults could figure out how to restrain a rampaging 10-year-old without striking or electrocuting him. This feat was beyond the competence of two police officers from Martinsville, Indiana, who were put on paid vacation after they physically assaulted a troubled 10-year-old and then shot him with a Taser.

We Spoke Loudly...But It Didn't Matter At All

Beholden to a handful of financial oligarchs, congressional democrats passed Obamacare, over the opposition of millions of Americans, while republicans in Washington kept the left/right paradigm alive by pretending to oppose the new Healthcare "Reform" Bill.

With the plutocrats of the International Monetary/Banking Cartel in control of all US intelligence agencies, democratic senators and congress-persons had little fear of being voted out of office, when voting for Obamacare, no matter how much their constituents opposed that legislation. You see, its the Cartel's intelligence agents who implement electronic voting machines, that "elect" Cartel minions to congress. And, we the people can go ... well, we can go on pretending we live in a democratic country.

Though he hoped to spark an armed revolution, Timothy J. McVeigh ended up weakening the anti-government militia movement, whose visible membership has declined since the Oklahoma City bomber’s capture and trial, experts who monitor extremism said yesterday. Militia members expressed a cool indifference about McVeigh’s fate, saying he stigmatized their cause and is no martyr.

A Magnetic Field Applied to the Brain Can Alter People's Sense of Morality

Studies have shown that the right temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) lights up with activity when we engage in moral judgments like evaluating the intentions of another person, indicating the region is important to making moral decisions. But while we like to think we're very consistent in our morality, the MIT team showed that an electromagnetic field applied to the scalp impairs our ability to evaluate the intentions of others, leaving us with little by which to hand down a moral judgment.

Sheik Who Ran $650B Fund Found Dead

The 40-year-old prince had no deputy director at the $650 billion fund, which invests Abu Dhabi's oil revenue. Experts believe his death is likely to spark a power struggle within the emirate's royal family. The sheik wasn't part of the powerful clique controlled by his nephew, the crown prince, who is now expected to attempt to gain control of the fund and consequently control of virtually all of Abu Dhabi's economy.

Police “Welfare Check” Leaves Woman Dead

Police were sent to her apartment to conduct a “welfare check.” For some reason, the woman didn’t want to be “helped” by the friendly state functionaries with guns.

Oh, but we insist, replied the “Blue Angels,” as they summoned their khaki-clad comrades from the Tactical Squad. Eventually, because of “threats” she supposedly made against the stormtroopers, the police (in the words of a local TV reporter) “were forced to shoot her.”

POLL - Pope Scandal

We want to know what you think about this.

Did Pope Benedict deliberately hide sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests?

Vote in the FOX UP poll below, and leave a comment telling us why or why not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

76% replied "yes."

I would strongly advise that the remaining 24% not be allowed to operate heavy machinery as they are clearly operating in a diminished capacity, i.e. they are allowing beliefs to trump reality.

Thanks to everyone who is donating. Many donations have come in from anonymous benefactors using money orders with no identification and no return address. I send thanks to all donors, electronic for electronic and paper for paper (if you did not get a thank you note, blame the post office) but I wanted to make a public thank you to the people who wished to remain concealed, and I fully understand why. So, thanks you to all you unsung Rivero's Rangers out there! Together we may yet stop this rush to war before we wake up with a mushroom cloud in our front yards!

Just moments after Dr. Martin Luther King was killed by a sniper's bullet, a photographer took the above picture. Dr. King lies on the balcony floor. The witnesses are all pointing in the direction the fatal shot was fired from. There is no confusion among the witnesses as to where the source of the shot was. They are not confused by echoes. There is no uncertainty. All three witnesses are pointing in exactly the same direction.

The official story is that these men are pointing at the bathroom window in the rear of the rooming house from which James Earl Ray is supposed to have fired a gunshot.

But is that where the witnesses are pointing?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sunday is the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King. Already the corporate media is cranking up a plethora of TV offerings to reassure the public of the official myths and attack any who dare suggest that just because the US Government and ABCNNBBCBS was caught lying to us all about Saddam's "nookular" bombs is no reason to ever question anything else the government and media have told us!

Is WikiLeaks a CIA/Mossad Front?

WikiLeaks is getting a lot of publicity in anticipation of a classified film Wikileaks claims to have in its possession that shows evidence of a US massacre of civilians. Images have power – think Abu Ghraib, think Mi Lai – and efforts at "perception management" by the department of defence will be much complicated by documentary evidence that leaves little to interpretation or "perception" of a human rights crime committed by US forces. Wikileaks plans to show the video at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on 5 April.

But Wayne Madsen is reporting that WikiLeaks may well be a CIA/Mossad operation.

Then again maybe Madsen is an operative.

Cash-Poor Cities Take On Unions

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa once organized for a teacher's union here, and later ran a branch of the American Federation of Government Employees. That makes him an unlikely advocate for cutting the benefits of the city's workers.

But with the city facing a budget deficit that could drain its reserves by summer, Mayor Villaraigosa wants to re-open contract talks with 45,000 cops, firefighters, librarians and other city employees in hopes of persuading them to contribute more to their pensions and health-care costs. His deputy chief of staff, Matt Szabo, puts it bluntly: "Unions have priced themselves out of a job."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is my point; The government is cutting costs for all those services we pay taxes for, but still paying full price for weapons of wars and Israel and Wall Street. Government is fighting with itself and with the people over the last few pennies in the bottom of the barrel and has abandoned even the pretense of knowing how to fill that barrel back up.

China 'ready for talks' on new UN sanctions on Iran

The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, said China was ready to hold "serious" talks with Western powers on a new UN resolution.

This would mark a policy shift for China, which has strong ties with Iran. China says it wants a peaceful outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be a misread. In China, not to talk is considered very impolite. So China is always ready to talk. And they are always ready to listen to any offers that might benefit them.

But China is also shrewd enough to understand that new sanctions cannot force Iran to give up nuclear weapons it does not actually have, and that this "failure" will simply be another US and Israeli justification to launch yet another war of conquest against an unoffensive nation and innocent people.

America Is Still Headed Towards Fascism Under Obama

When left-wing icon Naomi Wolf warned that America was heading towards fascism under George W. Bush, characterized by illegal surveillance, arbitrary detention of suspects, and paramilitary martial law, she was lauded, but when she continued to issue the same warning as a result of Obama’s failure to reverse any of those policies, many on the left abandoned support for her.

However, as Wolf’s recent interview with leftist website Alternet makes plain, liberals may finally be starting to understand that both political parties in Washington are part of the problem, not the solution.

A Fascist economy is characterized by profits being kept private, but losses being socialized across the general population.

This article investigates the history of contemporary Christian Zionism in the United States and the impact of this movement on US policy issues related to Israel-Palestine.

The Contrarian Trade of the Decade: The US Dollar

Since so much debt is dollar-denominated, then there will be demand for dollars to pay down debt. That is the essence of deleveraging.

And since other assets will be falling as interest rates rise and risk aversion returns with a terrible vengeance, then "cash will be King." Dollars will rise in value, and the best and safest return on capital will be money-market funds or short-term notes.

Rather than doom the dollar, these trends suggest the dollar could rise in purchasing power and demand for years to come. I know this is contrarian, but ponder the distinction between "printing money" and selling bonds/attempting to expand credit in a credit-averse, collateral-impaired system.

The shackles that bind the US to Israel

Sonja Karbar reminds us that beyond Washington’s superficial admonishing of Israel over its humiliation of the Obama administration lie the unbreakable shackles that paralyse the US and prevent it from translating its words into real action to rein in the Zionist monster.

”The disconnect between words and actions might please those who want peace more than they want justice for the Palestinians, but for many the words have been done to death. By the time proximity talks morph into full negotiations, there will be no Jerusalem left to negotiate and no Palestinians left in Jerusalem. All words will then be meaningless.”

“Reporting” on Iran should seem familiar

Fox News currently has an article at the top of its website that is headlined: ”CIA: Iran Moving Closer to Nuclear Weapon.” The report, by DOD and State Department correspondent Justin Fishel, begins with this alarming claim:

A recently published report by the Central Intelligence Agency says Iran is still working on building a nuclear weapon despite some technical setbacks and international resistance — and the Pentagon say it’s still concerned about Iran’s ambitions.

But, as blogger George Maschke notes, that statement is categorically false. The actual report, to which the Fox article links and which the DNI was required by Congress to submit, says no such thing.

The U.S. economic and systemic solvency crises of the last two years are just precursors to a Great Collapse: a hyperinflationary great depression. Such will reflect a complete collapse in the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar, a collapse in the normal stream of U.S. commercial and economic activity, a collapse in the U.S. financial system as we know it, and a likely realignment of the U.S. political environment.

Climategate Investigation A Monumental Whitewash

A Parliamentary investigation into the climategate scandal has cleared the scientists involved of any data fixing and subversion of the peer review process, and notes that the scandal provides no evidence to challenge the notion that human activity is causing catastrophic global warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "investigation" took all of one day and consisted of letting the Hadley CRU scientists make up any nonsense they wanted, such as the claim that "Hide the decline" is science-speak for getting rid of erroneous data. (It isn't!)

I would be tempted to dismiss this as an April Fool's day joke but I think the reality is that the government of Great Britain is as desperate to get their hands on carbon-tax revenues as the US Government, coupled with the fact that governments are operating just like the Vatican these days, in that they presume an aura of infallibility which does not allow one to ever admit error.

Arbour contends that the wording of the letter was used at the time as code for pedophilia, though archdiocese officials disputed that.

After being evicted from Rome, Pope Clement V (1305-1314) and the entire Christian bureaucracy fled to Avignon, France. Francesco Petrarch, one of Italy’s most famous scholars, lived on the outskirts of Avignon for several years. At some point he set to intentionally observe and record the papal lifestyle, and he left behind one of the most candid descriptions of the Church’s despotism ever printed. Many considered him among the greatest intellectual writers of the age and he was esteemed by nobility throughout Europe, so his rebukes carried weight and had an impact.

Pedophilia in the Catholic Church: Coverup Operation at the Vatican?

Pope Benedict should do everyone a favor and resign. By hanging on, he's just making matters worse. Who does he think he's fooling anyway? Everyone knows that he was involved in the sex-scandal cover up. Does he really think that a few papal apologies will make a difference? He was in charge and knew everything that was going on. That makes him responsible. His best option now is to "man up" and face the consequences. He needs to arrange a press conference, tell the truth, and resign. End of story.

The bottom line is that people's lives have been ruined and someone has to pay.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current ploy of attempting to make the Pope immune from lawsuits is pathetic, and utterly irresponsible.

Father Poole has never been convicted of a crime, but the Jesuits have settled numerous sex-abuse claims against him since 2005, in excess of $5 million, according to an attorney involved in four of those five lawsuits. Exact figures aren't available because some of the settlements involve confidentiality agreements. The Jesuits have never let a single case against Father Poole go to trial.

'Hedge Fund' Took Them for $8M, Family Says

A family says three men ran a bogus hedge fund that cheated them of $8 million. They say the Black Card Group may never have existed at all, that if it did exist it's in default, and that its directors, Ethan Conrad, Frank Sim and Harrold Pressly, spent their money on luxury vehicles and resort property.

Five members of the Urata family say Conrad told them that "the real estate market was getting soft, that he had formed a hedge fund that was earning 3 percent a month and that Charles Urata should put his money in the fund instead of real estate." He told Urata that he had put his own money into the fund, which "was exclusive ... was available just for friends ... [and] that it was a 'no brainer'; that it was really safe."

Pacified Populations

If the U.S. public looked long and hard into a mirror reflecting the civilian atrocities that have occurred in Afghanistan over the past 10 months, we would see ourselves as people who have collaborated with and paid for war crimes committed against innocent civilians who meant us no harm.

Two reporters, Jerome Starkey of the Times UK and David Lindorff of Counterpunch.org, have persistently drawn attention to U.S. war crimes committed in Afghanistan. Makers of the film Rethink Afghanistan have steadily provided updates about the suffering endured by Afghan civilians. Here is a short list of atrocities that have occurred in the months since Gen. McChrystal assumed his post in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Afghanistan do not "...hate us for our freedoms"; they hate us because we are murdering their wives, husbands, brothers, and sisters.

The invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was to have brought about two outcomes, one of which has already been accomplished, and that was control over the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

The second was "pacifying" the Afghan people to the point where pipelines could be installed with which to control Eurasian oil.
That goal, nearly nine years on, has yet to be achieved, and may well never be achieved.

If the US Pentagon and state department employed people with any degree of intelligence whatsoever, they should have the US declare victory, go home, and negotiate with whatever government is left standing in Kabul. Please remember; as late as August of 2001, the Bush administration was negotiating with the Taliban regarding the pipeline rights, but felt that the Taliban's offer was "too high".

Apparently, the price of our kid's lives claimed in the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was "cheaper" for both the Bush, and now the Obama administration.

Blood in the Vatican: A Fresh look at the Swiss Guard Murders

But the following year rumours began to leak out that there was more to this than met the eye. Had Estermann been a spy in the Vatican for the Stasi, the East German secret police before the collapse of Communism? Certainly such espionage went on in both camps. Was Estermann a sodomite? Was there a third gunman? The Vatican stuck to its version and denied the infuriated Italian police access on grounds that the Vatican was extra-territorial. A copy of the lengthy Vatican Bolletino 55/99 released on the 8th February 1999 lies before the author and stands firm for the “fit of madness” explanation.

Fox Nation Punks Itself with Global Warming “News” Story

Fox Nation Punks Itself with Global Warming “News” Story

Jeeze, Fox Nation ran this story yesterday, and I’ve yet to see any other outlet pick it up. You would think that a thing like this would have been more widely reported…

Famed global warming activist James Schneider and a journalist friend were both found frozen to death on Saturday, about 90 miles from South Pole Station, by the pilot of a ski plane practicing emergency evacuation procedures.

Oh, wow. That’s really sad to hear. Thank you, Fox Nation, for bringing this sorrowful and somewhat suspiciously ironic story to light. But what was this famous activist whom I’ve never heard of doing down there in the first place?

Pedophilia in the Catholic Church: Coverup Operation at the Vatican?

Sinead O'Connor, Irish musician and abuse-victim, was so incensed by Benedict's fake empathy, she wrote a fiery article for the Washington Post where she said:

"Irish Catholics are in a dysfunctional relationship with an abusive organization. The pope must take responsibility for the actions of his subordinates. If Catholic priests are abusing children, it is Rome, not Dublin, that must answer for it with a full confession and a criminal investigation. Until it does, all good Catholics... should avoid Mass. In Ireland, it is time we separated our God from our religion, and our faith from its alleged leaders."
