For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old system and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new one." -- Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513

Today's DC Obama protest crowd over a million

First reports from AP and NY Times indicate 'thousands' at DC protest?
Rick Moran September 12, 2009
What else would you expect? Both the Times and AP are equating the crowds turning out in DC to protest Obama's policies with crowds turning out to see the president later today at a town hall meeting.
AP's and the Times notion of "thousands:[Photo]
According to CNN, the event got underway an hour and a half early because so many people showed up at the bottom of Pennsylvania avenue, there was simply no more room for new arrivals.

Scientific Facts on 9/11 Point at US

Sane, educated people with a modicum of scientific education and experience know that (1) steel and concrete skyscrapers don't turn to shattered steel, molten metal and fine powder in 10 seconds after localized, relatively low temperature fires and (2) trainee pilots trained on light aircraft for several weeks can't land a passenger jet on a dime (i.e. on the ground floor of the Pentagon) after allegedly slicing through half a dozen light poles and evading umpteen other obstacles on the landing strip (trees, cars, overpasses etc).

U.S. Expands Global Missile Shield Into Middle East, Balkans

To demonstrate how close the Pentagon is to completing plans for an international interceptor missile system that can be used for blackmailing other nations into submission and laying the groundwork for a "winnable" war against major powers like Russia and China - by being able to neutralize missiles surviving a first strike and so an adversary's ability to retaliate - the new head of the Missile Defense Agency, U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Patrick O'Reilly,recently boasted that his agency's missile interceptions have proven 86%successful and that "The Defense Department recently committed an additional$900 million toward fielding the Army's theater high-altitude-area defense mobile missile defense system.

Deputy PM: Time is now for action on Iran nukes

Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor said "the time is now" for Israel and the world to act to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions, after world powers on Friday accepted Iran's response to their offer of talks on the issue.

Meridor, who is also Minister of Intelligence and Atomic Energy, played down speculation that Israel was on the verge of launching a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities.

"The trend is clear, and if you want to be an owner of nuclear weapons or have the capability of being a nuclear power it changes the balance of power," he told Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, not mentioned in that statement, is the fact that Israel does have nuclear weapons, and refuses to be a signatory to the NPT.

UNCUT ALBUM REVIEW: MUSE - RESISTANCE

Muse’s frontman Matthew Bellamy is one of a breed of crackpots who believe that 9/11 was “an inside job”: that the 3,000 people who died in the Twin Towers – and, presumably, the victims of terrorism in London, Madrid, Mumbai, Delhi, Bali, Jakarta, Sudan, Somalia and so on – were not killed by Islamist terrorists but by some shady cabal comprising the CIA, MI6, Mossad, Gilead Sciences, Shell Oil and a phalanx of shape-shifting reptiles. Bellamy, an innocent, relentlessly curious autodidact who questions absolutely everything, is essentially prepared to believe any hare-brained conspiracy theory that counters the prevailing worldview.

'I told the US to talk to the Taliban. They jailed me'

Eight years on, as the West struggles to form a coherent policy on Afghanistan amid mounting domestic opposition to the war, Mullah Muttawakil has claimed that the West has repeatedly squandered chances for peace.

"We have seen a lot of fighting since then, a lot of blood has been spilt, all for what?" he asked. "They are saying now that they will talk to some of the Taliban. That is what I said to them just after the war. I offered to put them in touch with the relevant people. Their answer was to put me in jail."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable, but clearly a demonstration an absolute lack of critical thinking, coupled with a "shoot-'em-up" cowboy mentality.

At the end of the day, the only way to achieve any positive outcome US and NATO forces in Afghanistan will be to talk to the Taliban, and bring them into the political dialogue of the country.

The only other alternative is to murder every single last Afghan still breathing.

FLASHBACK - The "Pod People" And The Plane That Crashed Into the Pentagon

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Relinked in response to the flood of emails I am getting after covering this on today's radio show.

Two questions...

1. Numerous witnesses saw the 757 flying towards the Pentagon. Not one witness saw it fly away. Did the USS Enterprise beam it up at the last second?

2. Since the perpetrators have to get rid of the 757 and people anyway, why NOT crash them into the Pentagon? What is the motive for a substitution? Why take the risk? What is the PURPOSE?

Canary in the Coal Mine

When individuals choose to accumulate savings in the form of gold rather than interest-bearing paper deposits in government-insured accounts, there is only one reason for doing so: they fear that the interest will not be enough to compensate for their expected loss of purchasing power through inflation. This fear reflects both current inflation and the expectation for future inflation. While there are those who buy gold to speculate on its appreciation, the underlying factor that drives that appreciation in the first place will always be inflation. If governments were not creating inflation, there would be little investment advantage to owning gold.

Putin warns against attack on Iran

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned against military action targeting Iran or imposing new sanctions to curb its nuclear program.

Speaking in Moscow, Mr Putin said strikes on Iran would lead to an increase in terrorism in the region.

"This would be very dangerous, unacceptable. This would lead to an explosion of terrorism, increase the influence of extremists," he said when asked about the possibility of an attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is being logical on this issue: this is why the US and Israel will ignore him completely.

Held In A Psychiatric Ward & Called “Delusional” For Saying 9/11 Was An Inside Job

I was wrongly diagnosed as delusional by the psychiatric staff of Ward 7 at Northland Base Hospital in Whangarei and held hospital against my will for 11 days in mid-2006, because I maintained the attacks of 9/11 were orchestrated by criminal elements inside the US Administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "Old Soviet Union" of the New Zealand government!

And yet there are people here in the US today (very invested in making sure Americans don't look at the gaping disparities between the official story and truth) who claim that if you don't swallow whole the official version of the events of 9/11 whole, you are suffering from some kind of "mental illness", and in desperate need of treatment.

Miami’s Ex-DEA Chief Charged with Shredding Documents for Allen Stanford

The former chief of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Miami office who led the agency’s cases against infamous Panama strongman Manuel Noriega and Medellin cartel kingpin Fabio Ocho, was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday Sept 10, 2009 for ordering the shredding of records once belonging to disgraced banker Allen Stanford.

Killing America's Kids

I thought a long time before writing about this matter, and was not pleasant to be around. The photo resonated with me, as we say. You see, long ago, in another pointless war, promoted by another conscienceless Secretary, I too was a Marine Lance Corporal of twenty-one years. I too got shot, though not nearly as badly as this kid, and spent a year at Bethesda Naval Hospital. At this point I am legally blind following my (I think) thirteenth trip to eye surgery as a result of an identical foreign policy.

Photographs are death to a war, boys and girls. They can asphyxiate a war faster than roadside bombs can even dream. Gates does not want the sprawling somnolent inattentive beast, the public, to see what his wars really are.

SONIC WEAPONS USED IN IRAQ POSITIONED AT CONGRESSIONAL TOWNHALL MEETINGS IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY

September 11, 2009 (San Diego) – “Long-range acoustic devices [LRADs] for crowd control can be extremely dangerous. These are used in Iraq to control insurgents. They can cause serious and lasting harm to humans…We want to know WHY our Sheriff Dept has this weapon,” Sal Magallanez of San Diego-based Liberty One Radio said in an e-mail sent to East County Magazine, prompting a joint investigation.

The device was stationed by San Diego County Sheriff deputies at a recent town hall forum hosted by Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) in Spring Valley and at a subsequent town hall with Congressman Darrell Issa (R-San Diego). The Davis Rally drew an estimated 1,300-1,500 people, including vocal conservative and liberal protest groups.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable.

It is obvious that our alleged "congressional representatives" are getting really terrified of We the People, who have had it up to here with getting personally and financially betrayed by nearly every piece of congressional legislation which is passed.

It has become glaringly apparent to thinking Americans that most congressional representatives are merely acquisitions of those large corporations which fund their campaigns, overtly and covertly. Legislation is always written to protect their interests, and not the interests of the American people.

NGO Reports on Gaza War Belie Israeli Claims

This week, two respected human rights organizations — one Palestinian, one Israeli — each came out with very full reports into the extent of the damage caused by the assault Israel waged against Gaza last winter.

Meanwhile, in the lead-up to the publication of Goldstone’s report, the Israeli government has launched a very tough offensive against all the Israeli and international rights organizations that have been documenting the damage in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Israel can't refute the facts, they characteristically attempt to smear the fact presenters.

I hope these reports get the intense media attention they deserve.

Israel Blames Lebanese Govt Following Exchange of Fire

Early today, a pair of Katyusha rockets were fired from southern Lebanon, landing in an empty field near an Israeli town but doing no damage and causing no injuries. The Israeli military responded by firing 12 to 15 artillery shells at the site they suspect was the source of the rockets, but again it does not appear to have done any damage or harmed anyone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is looking for an excuse, any excuse, to go back into Lebanon.

They are desperate for water, and the next time they invade Lebanon, they will go all the way to the Litani River.

Iran War Drums Begin Beating in Washington

As nuclear negotiations between Iran and the West continue to move slowly, U.S. President Barack Obama is coming under growing pressure from what appears to be a concerted lobbying and media campaign urging him to act more aggressively to stop Iran’s nuclear program.

The pressure campaign kicked off in earnest this week. On Thursday, hundreds of leaders and activists from the U.S. Jewish community descended on Washington to lobby for harsher sanctions, while widely-publicized media reports suggested that Iran is already nearing the verge of a nuclear capability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Israel is pulling out all the stops in order to get the US to neutralize its existential threat, Iran, due to its nuclear energy program.

Israel expects our kids to do the fighting, getting maimed, and dying to achieve this geopolitical outcome.

Even though the US has said that they are willing to talk to Iran regarding the latest document Iran has sent regarding its nuclear program, this is simply cosmetic. Iran has said that its nuclear enrichment is off the table for discussion, and that issue is at the core of the Iran's disagreement with the West.

The US and Israel know, without a doubt, that neither Russia nor China will go along with more sanctions at the UN security council.

So, the US and Israel are left with imposing either unilateral, or bilateral sanctions on Iran.

But how are those sanctions going to function if the rest of the world ignores them?

Short answer: they won't.

US, British Officials Caution Afghan Vote Delay ‘Could Help al-Qaeda’

Top officials from both the US and British government cautioned against what is shaping up to be a long term dispute over last month’s Afghan presidential election, with US envoy Richard Holbrooke saying that al-Qaeda would be a beneficiary of any delays in issuing the results.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You don't know whether to laugh or cry at such statements.

This "election" (read: "installation of the thug they know", courtesy of the US and NATO), was an absolute sham, a fraud writ large, and a colossal disservice to the people of Afghanistan.

But of course, a truly free and fair election probably would not have returned Karzai to power, and the US and NATO weren't about to see that happen.

The Secret Service at Booker Elementary: The Dog That Did Not Bark

If the events of 9-11 were truly a surprise to the United States Government then there is no way the Secret Service could have known there wasn't a hijacked or stolen plane heading towards Booker Elementary School that very second.

The Secret Service did nothing. The dog did not bark.

The Secret Service should be in that video, but they are not. It is clear from their inaction that they KNEW FOR A FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS NOT A TARGET OF ONE OF THE HIJACKED PLANES. The intended targets of the planes had to have been known.

The dog did not bark because the criminal was its master.

Quod Erat Demonstradum, the Bush administration was part of the 9-11 plot.

Doubt and anger over carbon tax

THE ANNONCEMENT that taxe carbone will be set at €17 a tonne has been met with strong criticism on how much it will cost to enforce and whether it will work.

The price of a litre of petrol will rise by 4 centimes and a litre of diesel by 4.5 centimes under the new tax, due to begin in 2010, which Prime Minister François Fillon described as a “real ecological and fiscal revolution”.

It will not apply to electricity.

However former Parti Socialiste presidential candidate Ségolène Royal described it as “ineffective, unjust and vicious” adding that people did not have the choice whether to drive or heat their house if there was no proper alternative.

Appeals court dismisses Abu Ghraib lawsuit

A federal appeals court on Friday dismissed a lawsuit claiming contractors for defense firm CACI International Inc. abused detainees at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

In a 2-1 ruling, the D.C. Court of Appeals said the firm is protected by laws barring suits filed as the result of military activities during a time of war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, Obama should just take copies of every human rights agreement to which this country has ever been a signatory (including the Geneva Accords), and burn them publicly, just so there is absolutely no doubt in the minds of both American citizens and the rest of the world what vilely low esteem we hold the concept of human rights.

There are two problems with this country having gone down that slippery slope in the institutionalization of torture.

First, we have, for all practical intents and purposes, walked away from any human rights treaty this country has ever signed.

Secondly, by using torture against prisoners of wars, we have suddenly made it perfectly acceptable for other countries to torture US civilians and military personnel.

Chew on that one for a while, particularly if you have family serving in our military.

The Road to Tehran Does Not Run Through Moscow

It is unlikely the US will be able to convince Russia to take any meaningful steps against Iran (Washington has already all but conceded its strongest bargaining chip, the planned anti-ballistic missile system in eastern Europe that Moscow opposes).

At this point, continuing to seek agreement with Moscow merely drags out the process while the Iranian program moves forward. The US should stop emphasizing the need for Russian cooperation, focus on developing a common front with key allies in Europe and the Middle East, and continue offering to negotiate directly with Tehran. Though Russian help might be useful in the abstract, Washington will have to find ways to solve the Iranian nuclear problem on its own.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the author of this op-ed didn't "get the memo", which is why his jingoism is all the more chilling. It is also clear that he has no immediate family in the US military.

As reported on 18 July 2009 in:

Has Osama Bin Laden been dead for seven years - and are the U.S. and Britain covering it up to continue war on terror?

Undeterred, Barack Obama has launched a fresh operation to find him. Working with the Pakistani Army, elite squads of U.S. and British special forces were sent into Waziristan this summer to 'hunt and kill' the shadowy figure intelligence officers still call 'the principal target' of the war on terror.

This new offensive is, of course, based on the premise that the 9/11 terrorist is alive. After all, there are the plethora of 'Bin Laden tapes' to prove it.

Yet what if he isn't? What if he has been dead for years, and the British and U.S. intelligence services are actually playing a game of double bluff?

Incredibly, this is the breathtaking theory that is gaining credence among political commentators, respected academics and even terror experts.

An acute lack of gold comprehension is evident almost on a global basis. The entire system is wedded to toxic paper.

Iranian Nuke Proposal Falls Short Of Western Demands

Iran's new offer for talks with six world powers ignores their key demand of a freeze of Tehran's uranium enrichment program, according to a copy obtained Friday by The Associated Press, and instead amounts to a manifesto calling for a new international order.

But in a surprise turn, the State Department announced Friday that the United States and its five partner countries would talk to Iran despite its insistence that its nuclear program was not negotiable.

September 12-October 2001: Steel Debris From WTC Shipped Out of US for Recycling

In the month following 9/11, a significant amount of the steel debris from the WTC collapses is removed from the rubble pile, cut into smaller sections, and either melted at a recycling plant or shipped out of the US.

A respected fire fighting trade magazine comments, “We are literally treating the steel removed from the site like garbage, not like crucial fire scene evidence.” [Fire Engineering, 1/2002] Rep. Joseph Crowley (D) will later call the loss of this evidence “borderline criminal.”

9/11 was a Hoax

The names of the alleged hijackers, all ostensibly Muslims, were released to the public only hours after the attacks, despite Mueller saying we had no knowledge this would happen. This is an impossible twist of logic. If he didn't know of a plan to strike buildings with planes, how would he know the names of the hijackers? Various artifacts were discovered in strategic places to try to confirm the government's story, but these have all been dismissed as suspicious planting of evidence. Since that time several names on that list have turned up alive and well, living in Arab countries. Yet no attempt has ever been made to update the list. And why were none of these names on the airlines' passenger lists?

America's New Left

On September 9, President Obama addressed a rare, joint session of Congress. His topic was health care reform. Universal health care is something every Russian citizen already gets from their government. But in the United States, the World’s richest country, it’s a big deal and a bitter debate. In America, if you get very sick, you probably go broke. Illness is the leading cause of bankruptcy here, and it’s why many Americans lose their homes. Our health care system is by far the most costly in the World and one of the most inefficient. In the last election, big change in America’s health care system was a major plank in the Democratic Party’s platform and one of Obama’s key campaign promises.

There is wide recognition in Europe -- and increasingly also in the United States -- that the war against the Taliban is going badly; that Coalition casualties and costs are spiralling; and that restive Western opinion is beginning to demand a timetable for withdrawal.

Has Osama Bin Laden been dead for seven years

Has Osama Bin Laden been dead for seven years - and are the U.S. and Britain covering it up to continue war on terror?
By Sue Reid 11th September 2009
Griffin, in his explosive book, says this tape is fake, and he goes further.
'A reason to suspect that all of the post-2001 Bin Laden tapes are fabrications is that they often appeared at times that boosted the Bush presidency or supported a claim by its chief 'war on terror' ally, British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
'The confession tape came exactly when Bush and Blair had failed to prove Bin Laden's responsibility for 9/11 and both men were trying to win international public support, particularly in the Islamic world, for the anti-terrorist campaign.'

Fiat Money: How Else You Gonna Kill 600,000 Americans?

It is strange that so few of those who are passionately opposed to war also come out strongly against fiat money. People ranging from Floyd Norris to Milton Friedman acknowledge that one of the primary "virtues" of fiat money is that it allows the government to spend more on war than citizens would tolerate in taxes or deficits. Forget arms control agreements — we need spending control!

He says that none of the people opposed to his plan have an option to offer. Well, that's just a steaming pile of bullshit. How about this option: everyone pays for their own health care up to 20% of their pre-tax income? Effectively, then, the rich will pay for all of their own health care and a lot of other people's, the poor will have a single-payer socialist health plan, and the middle-class will largely pay for their own health care but nobody will be bankrupted.

ISRAEL CRANKS UP PROPAGANDA MACHINE FOR WAR WITH LEBANON

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you study the twitter entries for Lebanon you will see a familiar pattern left over from the failed Iran coup; endless reposts of the same identical message, including identical tinyURLs, using multiple identities, spamming the same message of Israel's outrage at Lebanon.

Israel is going to restart the Lebanon war. and this time they will try to grow it into Iran.

WW3 is upon us, and unless we stop this thing, we are on the side which will lose.

Israel fires 14 rockets to South Lebanon

Israel targeted Friday afternoon Klaile region in South Lebanon so far with 14 rockets, shortly after two rockets were launched from southern Lebanon to Israel, Lebanese official National News Agency reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, who is it who might sneak over the border and set up a couple rockets inside Lebanon to launch back into Israel to justify stating yet another war?

Sep 11 21:32

FLASHBACK - Is Israel preparing to attack Lebanon?

Here we go again! The warmongers, Israel, is doing its best to go to war with Lebanon again in order to wipe the embarrassment they suffered in the last war with Hezbollah. Now, these bastards are doing their best to provoke the Lebanese, and especially Hezbollah, to fire the first shot so as to justfiy Israel’s invasion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think those first two rockets from Lebanon were planted by Israel. After all, Lebanon and Hezbollah do not want a new war, therefore they would not fire the first shot. But Israel wants war, especially one they can send young Americans to die in, and therefore they have a motive to stage a false flag attack; an all too common event in Israeli history.

FLASHBACK - Fake rocket attack

On the afternoon of February 7, rockets rained down on the northern Israeli town of Nahariya, and were immediately described by Israeli police as Katyusha rockets fired by Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon.

Later in the same day, the attack was described as the result of 'human error' involving a failed test by an Israeli weapons manufacturer in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Israel screams that they are being attacked by someone, remember that Israel has a habit of shooting missiles at itself to justify attacking their neighbors.

Four Katyusha Rockets Found in Southern Lebanon

Less than a week later, the Lebanese army and United Nations troops found three rockets in southern Lebanon. The rockets were connected to timers and were set to fire just one hour after they were discovered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only reason for these rockets to be on timers is to allow the people who set them up to GET BACK OVER THE BORDER INTO ISRAEL.

Ever see a US soldier launch a missile using a timer? Of course not. Using a timer means you are not really aiming at anything because the intended target can move or be deserted by the time the missile hits.

Insiders sell like there's no tomorrow

Can hundreds of stock-selling insiders be wrong?

The stock market has mounted an historic rally since it hit a low in March. The S&P 500 is up 55%, as U.S. job losses have slowed and credit markets have stabilized.

But against that improving backdrop, one indicator has turned distinctly bearish: Corporate officers and directors have been selling shares at a pace last seen just before the onset of the subprime malaise two years ago.

While a wave of insider selling doesn't necessarily foretell a stock market downturn, it suggests that those with the first read on business trends don't believe current stock prices are justified by economic fundamentals.

9/11: Support our troops by ending these illegal wars

Do you respect our troops? If so, demand their return home because they’ve been deployed in illegal Wars of Aggression. Don’t believe me when I say the wars are illegal and we should withdraw (Iraq and Afghanistan can request help from the UN on their own if they’re interested). YOU have to know the two simple rules of starting a war to determine if our troops’ presence is ethical or not. Do you know them? If so, thank you for your responsibility as a citizen. If not, thank you for reading this article to learn!

Susan Rice Urges Hill Democrats: Give War Strategy a Chance

Susan Rice, President Barack Obama’s U.N. ambassador, asked her fellow Democrats to give the commander-in-chief a bit of a break when it comes to the war in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to UN Ambassador Rice: what we appear to have in this alleged "change in strategy", announced by the white house last spring, looks suspiciously very much like the old strategy.

We are bombing the hell out of non-combatants, killing women, kids, the elderly, and the medically infirm.

These aerial bombardments are simply radicalizing those left standing against both the US and the Karzai government, and pushing them into the waiting arms of the Taliban.

And as your blithe statement: "America, she said, has a crucial stake in Afghanistan." Would you mind, Madam Ambassador, telling the American people just what the devil that is, particularly to those families and friends of people who have died and been maimed physically and/or psychologically fighting this war?

It could not possibly have been "creating democracy in Afghanistan, as demonstrated by the rampant fraud in the last election.

So what is that stake, Madame Secretary?

Thinking Americans are looking at the mayhem and misery we are creating there, and understanding very clearly that the only people "winning" this war right now are the drug dealers and the defense contractors, period, end of discussion.

Fifty questions on 9/11

Sep 11, 2009
THE ROVING EYE
Fifty questions on 9/11
By Pepe Escobar
The following questions, some multi-part - and most totally ignored by the 9/11 Commission - are just the tip of the immense 9/11 iceberg. A hat tip goes to the indefatigable work of 911truth.org; whatreallyhappened.com; architects and engineers for 9/11 truth; the Italian documentary Zero: an investigation into 9/11; and Asia Times Online readers' e-mails.
None of these questions has been convincingly answered - according to the official narrative. It's up to US civil society to keep up the pressure. Eight years after the fact, one fundamental conclusion is imperative. The official narrative edifice of 9/11 is simply not acceptable.

Svensmark: “global warming stopped and a cooling is beginning” – “enjoy global warming while it lasts”

Last week, reported the scientific team behind Sohosatellitten (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) that the number of sunspot-free days suggest that solar activity is heading towards its lowest level in about 100 years. Everything indicates that the Sun is moving into a hibernation-like state, and the obvious question is whether it has any significance for us on Earth.

If you ask the International Panel on Climate Change IPCC, representing the current consensus on climate change, so the answer is a reassuring ‘nothing’. But history and recent research suggests that it is probably completely wrong. Let us take a closer look at why.

The Sacred Mysteries of 9/11

My concerns in this essay are different. I am troubled by something else. I am troubled by the role the political parties, the corporate media and the universities have played, and are still playing, in the construction of the cult of 9/11.

I am bothered by the way they continue to set this day aside as if some sacredness protects it from all rational scrutiny and examination of evidence. Those of us who want to treat 9/11 like a historically important but otherwise ordinary day--who want to examine the crime scene and found out who did it and how—are treated like heretics.

We profane the elements of the cult. We must be “conspiracy nuts.” Or perhaps we hate Jews? Political parties, especially, rush to rid themselves of such scum as we obviously are.[3]

9-11 The Israeli Spy Ring

Let us be clear here. There is nothing benign about Israel spying on the United States. When Jonathan Pollard stole our nuclear secrets (which your taxes paid to develop) and sent them to Israel, Israel did not hesitate to trade those secrets to the USSR in exchange for increased emigration quotas.

The implication of these facts is that the billions of our tax dollars sent to Israel (while women and children sleep in America's alleys and eat out of trash bins) have bought and paid for a monstrous phone tracking and phone tapping system that can eavesdrop on almost any phone call in America. Even the White House phones were open to such tapping by listening in on the other end outside the White House itself.

9/11 anniversary: a lovely day for a spot of protesting at the BBC

I'll say this about 9/11: it was absolutely bonkers. It was double-plus bonkers with a cherry on top. And I find it bonkers squared that anyone can look back on that godforsaken day and think that they know exactly what happened. As if a giant CASE CLOSED has been stamped across the skyline of New York. As if 9/11 is a question that's been answered, a theorem that's been solved. Clearly, to the satisfaction of many, it has – but to the people standing outside the BBC today, the mystery and outrage not only haven't gone away, they're deeper and stronger than ever.

Oh, there will be those audio/visual presentations that will fill us with the remembered shock and awe of that day and silverfish from the sewers will crawl up into the news casting booths in suits and ties with blow-dried hair and a Halcyon glare and talk about what happened. They’ll have their little cameos and vignettes as the dutiful graduates of MKUltra and Tavistock share their recovered memories. So… they’ll be doing that and I thought I would do a little something too and that would be to remember the villains of 9/11, the people who planned and carried out the attacks and give them a little face time.

Therefore, in no special order and with a few facts and figures missing here and there, we will name some of the major players.

Obama says 9-11 victims were "sacrifice?"

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the president would "speak about what the day means and the sacrifices of thousands, not just at the Pentagon, but in Pennsylvania and certainly and most obviously in New York".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am linking to the cache of this story because this particular quote has already been expunged from the story.

From a reader: Isn't the whole idea about sacrifice is that it is to be something of value to the person giving it up? A nation "sacrifices" it's young people (its future) in war for the "greater good of protecting the nation". Parents make sacrifices for their children (they give up some things important to them in order to provide for their children) Ancient priests convinced their followers to give up a beautiful young woman or man to appease an angry God.

POTUS, I don't believe, is inclined to make these kind of semantic errors, he is well-educated and very well spoken. I can only believe that this means he is admitting that victims of 9/11 were sacrificed by those in the American Government who saw it (and continue to see it) as necessary for the greater good.

The creation of "terrorism" has been an excuse for a rapid evolution of sophisticated weaponry in the US military and the assault on Saddam - televised globally - gave the world the message that the US has technological superiority over all other nations and solidified their position as a nation to be feared and obeyed (at least that is what they hoped).

Do you know that the Christian villagers of Bir'im watched as the Israelis bombed their village in the 1950's? Even though the villagers wanted to live peacefully among the Israelis and didn't even want the part of the land back that European Jews had stolen from them, the Israelis wanted to assure that they would not return so they bombed their beloved village.

CIA Officer Responsible for pre-9/11 Failures, Tora Bora Escape, Rendition to Torture Revealed

Blee was a key figure in the pre-9/11 intelligence failures, the CIA station chief in Afghanistan when Osama bin Laden escaped from Tora Bora and instrumental in setting up the Bush administration’s rendition and torture policies.

I confirmed Blee’s identity in this document, notes drafted by a 9/11 Commission staffer, apparently in preparation of the drafting of the final report. The notes were found along with thousands of other 9/11 Commission files at the National Archives by History Commons contributor Erik Larson, who uploaded them to the 9/11 Document Archive at Scribd. I previously blogged other interesting aspects of the notes here and here.

Blee is mentioned several times in the 9/11 Commission’s files, but his name is always redacted, as it has been in the media until now. However, in one case the people doing the redactions let it slip past them.

The phrase from Tacitus comes to mind with only a slight modification. "They make desolation," he wrote. "and call it peace." In Afghanistan, they make desolation and call it freedom. Enduring freedom. This is the lesson the Afghans must learn. When you are the occupied, the native, the wog, you are subject to the occupier's definitions. He will kill your wives and children and call it pacification. He will choose your leaders, tell you to vote and call it democracy. He will kick in the doors to your home, arrest you and your sons, and call you insurgents. Of course, it is this very practice which turns many of your men into said insurgents.

FDA Approves “Emergency Rules” for Mass Medication of Population with Anti-Viral Drugs

The FDA has approved using the antiviral drugs Tamiflu and Relenza without many of the normal protections, in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) declaration of a health emergency in response to H1N1 swine flu.

Under the 2004 Project BioShield Law, the FDA is authorized to make an “Emergency Use Declaration” (EUD) allowing drugs to be used in a manner normally prohibited by federal regulations. This might entail allowing the use of an otherwise unapproved drug, or allowing previously unapproved uses of a drug that is already on the market.

The new rules will remain in effect until withdrawn by the FDA or until the declaration of health emergency is lifted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, as far as I know, inoculations have not yet been mandated by the Federal Government, and each state is supposed to decide whether or not to mandate inoculations.

Let us hope that, unlike what happened in Massachusetts, cool heads will prevail in the officers of state governors around the country.

Selling Death: Wall Street’s Newest Bubble

When Wall Street’s commodities bubble crashed last year, I asked whether the next bubble might be in securitized body parts. Wall Street would search the world for transplantable organs, holding them in cold storage as collateral against securities sold to managed money such as pension funds. Of course, it was meant to be an apocryphal story about unregulated banksters gone wild. But as the NYT reports, Wall Street really is moving forward to market bets on death. The banksters would purchase life insurance policies, pool and tranch them, and sell securities that allow money managers to bet that the underlying “collateral” (human beings) will die an untimely death. You can’t make this stuff up.

Analysts say that as the conflict continues to escalate the US risks being sucked into the nation’s civil war, if for no other reason than to prevent Yemen from becoming another failed state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in:

http://www.worldpress.org/Mideast/3387.cfm

"On July 17, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh celebrated the 31st anniversary of his ascension to power. The Sana'a regime, perverted by corruption, is largely unable to provide public services, including water, electricity, security, medical care and education. A third of Yemenis—7 million people—are malnourished. Police and military units act as enforcers for corrupt officials. The judiciary dispenses political retribution. Torture in Yemeni jails is systemic and brutal.

"U.S. military aid intended for border security may wind up fueling atrocities. The Yemeni military bombed cities and villages heavily in the northern Sa'ada province while countering a rebellion that began in 2004. The Sa'ada War, dubbed "Yemen's Darfur," forced nearly 200,000 citizens to flee their homes. The government blocked food, aid and medicine to 700,000 Sa'ada residents in "an act that appears to constitute an illegal collective punishment," Human Rights Watch found. Officials explained the deliberate starvation was meant to pressure villagers to turn over rebel fighters."

What the US government hasn't learned in its long and sordid history of interventionism, is that when you continue to support a dictator, there will be a flashpoint where the people will no longer sit still for it.

So now, this government may be militarily propping up a dictator, generally hated by his own people, to insure the flow of oil from the Gulf, just as we did with the Shah of Iran.

(You do, of course, remember just how brilliantly that worked out).

What Role Did the U.S.-Israeli Relationship Play in 9-11?

A mass murder, articles, books, think tanks and Pentagon insiders, however, are not enough to manage the variables in a “probabilistic” war-planning model. Supportive policy makers are also required to lend the appearance of legitimacy and credibility to an operation justified by intelligence fixed around a pre-determined agenda.

That role was eagerly filled by Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, a Jewish Zionist from Connecticut, and Jon Kyl, a Christian Zionist from Arizona, when they co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. Echoing Tel Aviv’s agenda in A Clean Break, their bill laid another mental thread in the public mindset by calling for the removal of Saddam Hussein–three years before 9-11.

Senate panel OKs $636 billion Pentagon budget with $128 billion for Iraq, Afghanistan wars

With hardly any debate, a powerful Senate committee Thursday approved President Barack Obama's $128 billion request for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for the budget year beginning in October.

Senate panel chairman Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, would not say whether he believes $128 billion would be enough for military operations in the two countries.

"Well, we're taking the word of the administration," Inouye said after the panel session.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While Americans slip deeper into poverty, and homeless Vets sleep in our streets, more and more of our taxpayer dollars are being committed to these insane wars without end.

We only have one party in this country, and that's the War Party, which controls both houses of congress, and have for some time.

And wars are great... if you're a defense contractor, or a senator or congressional representative who has been "acquired" by a major defense contractor or two, through overt and covert campaign contributions.

Iranian weapons cache found in Afghanistan: US

Afghan security forces have found a cache of weapons manufactured in Iran but it remains unclear whether it indicates a renewed effort by Tehran to aid insurgents, the Pentagon said Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bottom line here: the US has not a clue as to how the Iranian weapons actually got into Afghanistan (if they were, in fact actually manufactured in Iran), but that will not stop the US from accusing Tehran of actually being the culprit here.

People behind 9/11 plotting another attack: Mullen

"The people behind the 9/11 attacks are planning and plotting other attacks. Qaida and its extremist allies would like nothing better than to strike us again," Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen said at a September 11th Commemoration Ceremony at the Pentagon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Admiral Mullen: thinking Americans understand that this government would love nothing better than to pull off another stunning false flag, to cow the American people into stunned submission and meekly accept whatever government agenda would be served by such an event.

However, as rapidly as 9/11 came apart from the standpoint of the sheer force of logic which showed that the official story couldn't possibly be true, one would hope that those elements in government would love to give this another try, will not be allowed to do it (as was the case with Operation Northwoods).

MOCKING OBAMA

Despite American and international calls for freezing Jewish settlement expansion in the West Bank, the Israeli government this week authorised the building of hundreds of additional settler units on occupied Palestinian land. The decision, taken by Defence Minister Ehud Barak, represents a direct challenge to the Obama administration that has been urging Israel to freeze settlement building but to no avail.

Fears of Violence After Top Afghan Warlord Defends Post-Election Protests

Afghanistan’s Interior Minister Hanif Atmar has threatened to “break the teeth” of anyone who dares to protest against the hotly disputed results of last month’s presidential election, an apparent attempt to forestall the possibility of any Iran-style post-election rallies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Afghanistan, the US and NATO have done, through the current elections sham, is not ushered in a democracy; it has installed a "thugocracy", plain and simple.

Poverty hits 1 in 8 Americans

About 2.5 million Americans slipped below the poverty line as recession and layoffs hammered the economy last year, driving poverty to its highest level since 1998, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Thursday.

The annual survey showed that more than one in eight U.S. residents - 13.2 percent - are living on less than $10,991 for an individual - slightly more than $200 a week - or $22,025 for a family of four.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is allowed to happen in our country, while its government continues to spend billions in these wars without end, and bails out its cronies in the financial community.

Angry yet?!?!?

U.S. rejects Iran's proposal for talks

The State Department rejected Iran's latest proposal for international talks Thursday in another sign of trouble for the Obama administration's top-priority effort to engage Tehran in nuclear negotiations.

U.S. officials say Obama will decide by the end of the year whether to continue his offer of negotiations or withdraw it, and step up sanctions to force the Islamic Republic to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, that rejection sure didn't take long.

And notice that we seem to have a shifting deadline; first the administration was talking about giving Iran until the end of September. Now, it appears to have stretched to the end of the year.

One has to wonder if Israel will give the US that long.

Insiders sell like there's no tomorrow

Can hundreds of stock-selling insiders be wrong?

The stock market has mounted an historic rally since it hit a low in March. The S&P 500 is up 55%, as U.S. job losses have slowed and credit markets have stabilized.

But against that improving backdrop, one indicator has turned distinctly bearish: Corporate officers and directors have been selling shares at a pace last seen just before the onset of the subprime malaise two years ago.

2 Lebanese Rockets Fired Toward Israel

Two rockets were fired from southern Lebanon into Israel on Friday, prompting Israel to respond with artillery fire, Lebanese security and military officials said.

The exchange, in which no casualties were reported by either side, was the latest in persisting tensions between the two archenemies. It was the fourth time rockets have been fired from Lebanon into Israel, each time bringing Israeli retaliation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what elements in Lebanon actually fired those rockets.

Israel has been looking for an excuse - any excuse, actually - to go back into Lebanon. And this time, they'll go all the way to the Litani River because they're desperate for its water.
