WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


"The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army" -- Gen. George Washington, to his troops before the battle of Long Island

The Banality Of Jewish Symbolism By Gilad Atzmon

In the late 1940's a few sporadic Jewish thinkers insisted that after Auschwitz the Jews should position themselves at the forefront of the battle against evil. Not only has this never happened, the Jewish state is now established as the leading danger for world peace. Moreover, Jewish lobbies enthusiastically support racist ideologies (Zionism) and push for colonial expansionist and interventionist conflicts around the world.

Housing quote of the day

"We're spending tens of billions of dollars on a tax credit to get people to purchase homes, we're spending federal money to keep them in their homes through the modification program, and now we're going to pay them to move out of their homes. This is not a sustainable system for the housing market. It's a shell game. Bernie Madoff could have created this system,"

Kucinich willing to cast the vote that kills health reform

Facing razor-thin margins in the House, kucinich1 Kucinich willing to cast the vote that kills health reformDemocratic leaders are hoping to convert the sole liberal who opposes their health care bill, but it seems they have their work cut out because he isn't budging.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) on Monday defended his opposition to the proposal in an appearance on MSNBC's Countdown With Keith Olbermann, citing as his central concern its lack of a robust public option to provide competition for insurance companies.

"This bill represents a giveaway to the insurance industry," Kucinich said. "$70 billion dollars a year, and no guarantees of any control over premiums, forcing people to buy private insurance, five consecutive years of double-digit premium increases."

The Washington Post on ‘lunatic’ 9/11 ‘conspiracy theorists’

An editorial in the Washington Post yesterday slammed Japanese member of parliament Yukihisa Fujita because he “seems to think that America’s rendering of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is a gigantic hoax.” His “ideas” about the terrorist attacks “are too bizarre, half-baked and intellectually bogus to merit serious discussion.”

Fujita, the editorial added, is a member of “the lunatic fringe” who “have spawned a thriving subculture of conspiracy theorists at home and abroad”, and “his views, rooted as they are in profound distrust of the United States, seem to reflect a strain of anti-American thought”. The piece closes by suggesting that the “fact-averse” Fujita should be removed from office.

Israel’s Recent Extreme Makeover–A Cure Worse Than The Disease Itself By Mark Glenn

....They are (put in apocalyptic language) beasts, and hell-bent on making this life as miserable as possible for everyone. And of those types, none better fits that description than the wicked witch of the Middle East, Israel.

Merely consider her history. There’s never been a day in her life going all the way back to the earliest chapters of the Old Testament she wasn’t smiting, slaying, seducing or stealing from someone. By all appearances (and using her own family album as proof) it would seem she was a bad egg from the very moment she first set feet on God’s green earth and started hearing voices in her head telling her she was better than everyone else and destined to rule the world.

“Repent Amarillo”, or These Christian Jihadists Will Probably Kill You!

Ahhh, this is a strange story. It begins as the tale of a “church” in Amarillo that wants to get rid of a swingers club. But after peering a little deeper it seems evident to me that the religious group in this case is really just the thin disguise for a hate group led by their “pastor” David Grisham,”…a security guard at nuclear-weapons facility Pantex who moonlights as a pastor.”

By the end of this story you are going to be wondering if you want David Grisham guarding the nation’s nuclear weapons facility. More importantly you are going to wonder how many of the people running that facility are just like David Grisham!

Open Letter to the ADL

“Ethnic discrimination has been a continual struggle for Sephardim in Israeli society since the establishment of the State of Israel. Upon arrival from their countries of origin, Sephardic Jews were categorized as “Mizrahim,” (“Easterners”, or Jews from Arab or Muslim countries) a social and cultural category that was invented just for them at that time. However, though established in the past, this category is still meaningful sixty years later. Mizrahim in Israel continue to suffer from structural injustices. Statistics prove they have a high unemployment rate, comprise a disproportionate percentage of Israel’s prison and social welfare populations, and suffer substantial underachievement in education.

The percentage of American workers with virtually no retirement savings grew for the third straight year, according to a survey released Tuesday.

The percentage of workers who said they have less than $10,000 in savings grew to 43% in 2010, from 39% in 2009, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute's annual Retirement Confidence Survey. That excludes the value of primary homes and defined-benefit pension plans.

33 States Have Raised Taxes by $32 Billion/Year

The national recession has had such a devastating effect on state finances that states took in $87 billion less in tax revenue from October 2008 through September 2009 than they collected in the previous 12 months. This 11 percent decline, the steepest on record, resulted from the impact on tax collections of lost jobs, reduced wages, and lowered economic activity.

To recoup lost revenue, states have taken such actions as eliminating tax exemptions, broadening tax bases, and in some cases increasing rates as well as raising a number of fees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They can raise them all they want. If people do not have money they do not have money. What are the governments going to do, make another hundred million people homeless?

Greedy bastards like Goldman Sachs created a system to grab all the money to themselves and nobody planned for the day they would actually succeed!

On Memories and Memory Cards

My memory cards readers are systematically short-circuited every two or three weeks; I even took one of them to be checked out at an electronic laboratory, and they found out what I have suspected. Nobody else in the internet kiosks where I work experiences this problem. The shops selling the readers claim (and I believe them) the readers are reliable. Moreover, the events are strangely coordinated with certain articles I publish or emails I send. Remarkable such occasions were after the email described in the Skype article and yesterday, after I published the “Who is a Jew?” article. I have no doubt these are intentional attacks – in the category of harassment – perpetrated by Israel. Yet, I cannot complain on them since they would be classified as “circumstantial.”

CNN Lavishes Coffee Party With Favorable Coverage After A Year Of Tea Party Demonization

The corporate media is once again lavishing the “Coffee Party” with favorable coverage after having demonized the Tea Party as racist extremists for nearly a year, proof positive that the much vaunted new movement, which is run by an Obama campaign operative, is nothing more than a front for the establishment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The attempt to pull focus away from the Tea Party Movement has another aspect. Historically, the phrase "Tea Party" is associated with an anti-tax sentiment in the US, a sentiment gaining popularity with Americans right now as they are taxed into poverty to prop up private banking corporations.

Gordon Brown to blame for Forces funding cuts, Iraq inquiry is told

The Armed Forces had to make cuts every year while troops were fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan because Gordon Brown did not provide sufficient funding, the military’s top civil servant said yesterday.

Sir Bill Jeffrey told the Iraq inquiry that the military had been left with “significant” financial problems when Mr Brown ordered cuts six months after the start of the campaign.

The comments came three days after the Prime Minister told the inquiry that as Chancellor he had never turned down any request to buy military equipment for the campaign in Iraq.

Canuck spies grilling Afghan detainees prompts fresh calls for inquiry

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff raised the R-word and quickly backtracked, but NDP Leader Jack Layton categorically questioned whether the activities of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service in Afghanistan made it complicit in the torture of battlefield combatants by less trustworthy Afghan authorities.

The Liberals and NDP agreed that a report by The Canadian Press shedding new light on the shadowy activities of CSIS in Afghanistan makes a full public inquiry into the detainee affair all the more imperative.

This is of particular concern because Mullen has had considerable experience in putting the brakes on such Israeli plans in the past. This time, he appears convinced that the Israeli leaders did not take his warnings seriously – notwithstanding the unusually strong language he put into play.

The Obama Administration has heightened tensions with China through a series of measures which can only be characterized as major provocations designed to undermine relations between the two countries. These provocations include political support for separatist movements, such as the US-funded theocratic-monk led Tibetan secessionists and the Washington-based Uyghur secessionists, as well as through the $6.4 billion-dollar advanced arms sales to Taiwan, a virtual protectorate of the US Navy. President Obama has publicly met with and openly backed these separatist and secessionists groups, flaunting Washington’s refusal to recognize China’s existing borders.

Calling All Rebels

There are no constraints left to halt America’s slide into a totalitarian capitalism. Electoral politics are a sham. The media have been debased and defanged by corporate owners. The working class has been impoverished and is now being plunged into profound despair. The legal system has been corrupted to serve corporate interests. Popular institutions, from labor unions to political parties, have been destroyed or emasculated by corporate power. And any form of protest, no matter how tepid, is blocked by an internal security apparatus that is starting to rival that of the East German secret police. The mounting anger and hatred, coursing through the bloodstream of the body politic, make violence and counter-violence inevitable. Brace yourself. The American empire is over.

Alien v predator: moth out to kill Japanese knotweed

Biological warfare is to be declared on an alien invader, Japanese knotweed, that swamps gardens and rivers, with the release of an insect to eat the virulent weed.

The decision by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is the first allowing one non-native species, a flying insect resembling a miniature moth, to control the seemingly unstoppable spread of an alien plant.

However, it is likely to cause concern among wildlife lovers because of a long history of human interventions in the natural world ending in failure, and sometimes causing worse problems than the original, as with the cane toad in Australia.

Fiction of Marja as City Was U.S. Information War

For weeks, the U.S. public followed the biggest offensive of the Afghanistan War against what it was told was a "city of 80,000 people" as well as the logistical hub of the Taliban in that part of Helmand. That idea was a central element in the overall impression built up in February that Marja was a major strategic objective, more important than other district centres in Helmand.

It turns out, however, that the picture of Marja presented by military officials and obediently reported by major news media is one of the clearest and most dramatic pieces of misinformation of the entire war, apparently aimed at hyping the offensive as a historic turning point in the conflict.

In a recent conversation with a fellow gold analyst, he was emphatic that the price one pays for physical gold should be ignored. “What’s far more important,” he insisted, “is how many ounces I own in relation to the total value of my assets.”

Building a core position in gold bullion is a smart goal, to be sure, and a strategy Casey Research has been advising for years. However, ignoring the price you pay for gold could be seen as foolhardy; sure, it’s insurance, but isn’t price part of the consideration when you shop for insurance?

Cyberwar declared as China hunts for the West’s intelligence

Urgent warnings have been circulated throughout Nato and the European Union for secret intelligence material to be protected from a recent surge in cyberwar attacks originating in China.

The attacks have also hit government and military institutions in the United States, where analysts said that the West had no effective response and that EU systems were especially vulnerable because most cyber security efforts were left to member states.

Nato diplomatic sources told The Times: “Everyone has been made aware that the Chinese have become very active with cyber-attacks and we’re now getting regular warnings from the office for internal security.” The sources said that the number of attacks had increased significantly over the past 12 months, with China among the most active players.

Mr. Fujita's ideas about the attack on the World Trade Center, which he shared with us in a recent interview, are too bizarre, half-baked and intellectually bogus to merit serious discussion. He questions whether it was really the work of terrorists; suggests that shadowy forces with advance knowledge of the plot played the stock market to profit from it; peddles the fantastic idea that eight of the 19 hijackers are alive and well; and hints that controlled demolition rather than fire or debris may be a more likely explanation for at least the collapse of the building at 7 World Trade Center, which was adjacent to the twin towers.

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

60 Years of Drug Trafficking at the Venice Municipal Airport

During World War II, when it was known as the Venice Army Air Field, it was home to the Stateside operations of a man widely and credibly accused of using proceeds from international heroin trafficking to prop up the war machine of a corrupt Chinese warlord whose army, even after its defeat, hung on to a lion's share of Southeast Asian real estate which became known as the Golden Triangle.

Contemporary newspaper clips from the time show that the Venice Airport has had an extraordinary six-decade long history, and been the scene of covert activities including gunrunning, international heroin and cocaine trafficking, and being used as a launch pad for coups in the Caribbean and Central America.

The ‘magic bullet’ theory and a coup d’état in America

Whether you know it or not, the “magic bullet” theory is the critical keystone of the US government’s claim that a “lone gunman,” Lee Harvey Oswald, assassinated President John F. Kennedy. This theory has been conclusively proven false as of November 2009, with the publication of Reasoning about Assassinations, by Dr. James Fetzer, based upon research by a team of experts.

After all, it was the acceptance of this unbelievable theory that literally paved the way for a coup d’etat in America. That is, if you can assassinate a president in broad daylight in a major American city by deploying an elaborate set of lies and get away with it, what and who is left that is not within the province of US government intelligence agencies and cohorts to destroy?

Our glaciers are growing, not melting - More falsehoods from Al Gore

“Almost all of the ice-covered regions of the Earth are melting—and seas are rising,” said Al Gore -in an op-ed piece in the New York Times on February 27.

Both parts of Gore’s statement are false.

Never mind that Mr. Gore makes only passing reference to the IPCC’s fraudulent claims that the Himalayan glaciers will all melt by 2035. (“A flawed overestimate,” he explains.)

Never mind that Mr. Gore dismisses the IPCC’s fraudulent claims that the oceans are rising precipitously. (“Partly inaccurate,” he huffs.)

Never mind that Mr. Gore completely ignores the admission by the CRU’s disgraced former director Phil Jones that global temperatures have essentially remained unchanged for the past 15 years.

Prof. Kevin Howley Notes "Changing Journalistic Attitudes" Toward 9/11 Questions

The column concludes, "Changing journalistic attitudes toward the 9/11 Truth movement is a welcome and long overdue development. We also owe a debt of gratitude to international news workers who have shifted the terms of the debate away from conspiracy theory to a legitimate scientific debate worthy of public scrutiny." Howley maintains that "news media are the lifeblood of social movements. In the absence of thorough, substantive and accurate reporting of social movements, taboo subjects and uncomfortable truths remain out of sight and out of mind."

Carbon Market Collapse Brings Gore Out of Hiding

Errors and false statements confirm once again he doesn’t understand the science. But that is not enough because he adds that ignorance to almost complete denial of the exposed fraud of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Gore personifies hypocrisy from his massive carbon footprint while telling others to live green, to the amount of money made from the carbon credit market.

Nevada lawmakers' reliance on temporary fixes creates $3 billion hole

Over one million dead Iraqi and Afghan citizens and God knows how many wounded and suffering.

$3 to $5 trillion in long-term costs to American taxpayers. That’s $30,000 to $50,000 per US household of $50,000 annual income. If your household makes more than $50,000 per year, do the math to understand your personal obligation to pay for these long-term costs based on known lies.

Are the Oscars Rigged?

For example, after Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Co., received an Oscar nomination for Inglorious Bastards he said, “We’ll sell another million or two million DVD units” because of the nominations.

That’s real money. Surely enough money to offer some legal payola (trips, dinners, iPhones, etc.) to the Academy members. There was even a payola scandal over Scent of a Woman. (I am sure there are more, but this one was at my finger tips.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I've been on the receiving end of the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Oscars. Stargate (the movie) was nominated for the Oscar for Visual Effects, but was dropped by the "Blue Ribbon Committee" because Carolco was in the throes of an IRS-induced financial collapse and unable to cash in on the nomination and possible win.

And Al Gore's Oscar for best (you will pardon the expression) documentary exposes the highly politicized nature of the awards.

This year, the bias towards pro-war ("Hurt Locker") and pro-Israel ("Inglorious Basterds") films was obvious and heavy-handed. Avatar, clearly a masterpiece and to judge by the box-office receipts, the favorite film of the ticket-buying public, has garnered relatively few awards this season, possibly due to the obvious anti-war message of the film.

If anyone from Jim Cameron's office is reading this; Jim, Avatar is the best picture this year. The Academy just didn't realize it.

UK promises flexibility after Iceland shouts 'no'

Britain is "prepared to be flexible" to reach a deal with Iceland over the £2.3bn debt owed since the collapse of the online savings bank Icesave, the Chancellor, Alistair Darling, said yesterday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Britain is trying to make nice here because they realize that if the people of Iceland flat-out refuse to cover the bank losses there is little that Britain can do. Under the legal principle of Odious Debt, the people of Iceland are only obligated for debts incurred by the government for the betterment of the people of Iceland, such as schools, hospitals, and civil infrastructure. Clearly, saving a private corporation from their own reckless folly does not fall into that category!

Yes, Britain could invade and easily take control of Iceland, but the political costs of such an invasion would be high. Gone forever would be the myth that modern wars are fought for high ideals like freedom and democracy. An invasion of Iceland would show to all the world that Britain had returned to the days of enslavement by military force.

'We will not offer Greece a cent': German economy minister deals hammer blow to Athens as rioters attack police on the streets

It could almost be a battle from Greece's ancient past - a melee of fighting at close quarters with shields, raised weapons and flags.

But this was the scene in Athens yesterday as riot police clashed with protesters outraged by cutbacks designed to slash the country's huge budget deficit.

The violence came as Germany ruled out offering Greece 'a cent' of financial aid, insisting it should sort out it own problems.

A sharp-eyed viewer has noticed that when I was debating George Monbiot on TV yesterday and I mentioned that his cherished “peer-reviewed science” had been discredited by Climategate he bared his teeth like a cornered cur. Says my body language expert John Lish:

“It was a quite aggressive and defensive gesture which was noticeable when he was attempting to dismiss you (talking about peer review). A definite body-language sign of being rattled. He’s definitely uncomfortable about what’s occurring and others will have spotted that as well.”

A Detention Bill You Ought to Read More Carefully

Why is the national security community treating the "Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010," introduced by Sens. John McCain and Joseph Lieberman on Thursday as a standard proposal, as a simple response to the administration's choices in the aftermath of the Christmas Day bombing attempt? A close reading of the bill suggests it would allow the U.S. military to detain U.S. citizens without trial indefinitely in the U.S. based on suspected activity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Along with announcing that freedom of speech is again under attack, that John McCain introduced this bill should end any speculations that voting for him instead of Obama would have changed anything at all.

Methane, The Panic Du Jour

Is 1.85 ppm a large number? Let’s look at an analogy of what a population concentration of 1.85 parts per million really represents. If the population of Wyoming (544,270) represented all the molecules in the atmosphere, there would be only one methane molecule in the entire state. At 1.85 ppm, there would be fifteen methane molecules in New York City, out of population eight million. There would be on average zero in Nunavut, Canada.

I wonder how much methane Taco Bell indirectly generates per annum? I also wonder why so many Arctic/Greenland studies include only the years 2003-2008. Perhaps they are only interested in reporting data from unusually warm years in the Arctic?

Report reveals that one percent of US children, and growing, have autism

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a new report showing that one out of every 110 children in America today have some form of autism. With an estimated three-quarters of a million children somewhere on the autism spectrum, child advocacy group Autism Speaks is calling on the federal government to increase research efforts to combat the disease.

The report, published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report illustrates a 57-percent increase in autism cases between 2002 and 2006. A staggering 600-percent increase in the disease has occurred over the past two decades, plaguing boys more often than girls. Roughly one out of every 70 boys currently has some form of autism.

Ban of Controversial Painkiller Dramatically Cuts Suicides in UK

The withdrawal of a popular painkiller from the market in the United Kingdom has led to a dramatic decrease in the number of suicides and accidental overdoses in that country, according to a study conducted by researchers from Oxford University's Centre for Suicide Research and published in the British Medical Journal.

The drug in question is a combination of the narcotic painkiller dextropropoxyphene (in the opioid family) with the over-the-counter painkiller acetaminophen, also known as paracetamol or Tylenol. In the United Kingdom, the drug was marketed as co-proxamol, but it is also known as Darvon with APAP, Capadex, Di-Antalvic, Di-Gesic and Lentogesic.

Iceland Voters Reject Repayment Plan

Iceland’s voters expressed their outrage on Saturday against bankers, the government and what they saw as foreign bullying, overwhelmingly rejecting a plan to pay $5.3 billion to Britain and the Netherlands to reimburse customers of a failed Icelandic bank, Sarah Lyall reported in The New York Times.

With about 98 percent of the votes counted Sunday, roughly 93 percent of voters said no to the plan, in the first public referendum ever held on any subject in Iceland. Less than 2 percent voted yes, and the rest of the votes were invalid.

But the referendum was more symbolic than substantive, and the Icelandic government hastened to make clear that Iceland would still pay back the money, albeit on different terms from the ones rejected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iceland's people are declaring their economic freedom. It is clear that the people of Iceland do not want more IMF debts, and may not even be all that eager to join the EU if perpetual debt-slavery is the price to join that club.

The Icelandic people understand something that our Congress does not. Banks are private businesses, and private businesses that make reckless and foolish mistakes deserve to go out of business and government has no moral right at all to loot the general population to save rich bankers from their own greed and folly.

Of course the corporate media and government spokes-slugs will all condemn the people of Iceland for their refusal to pay for the failings of private bankers. Both governments and corporations are inextricably linked with bankers, so any attempt to refuse indentured servitude, any expression of refusal, any attempt to delink from the global banking cartel will be reported in the darkest possible terms, no different that the manner in which a confederate newspaper would have reported on the escape of a slave.

The faux-outrage is clear; how dare those Icelandic people fail to stand by their banks!

Look around you. Do you see the banks standing by We The People?

It is reckless of the Icelandic government to make promises of money the people of Iceland have so clearly rejected. The Icelanders have courageously kicked out one government already over this mess. I doubt they will hesitate to do so again.

China Snubs Israeli Calls for Iran Sanctions

The prime minister of contract murder, Binyamin Netanyahu, was not long permitted to rejoice over the agreement to sanction Iran which he had wrested from the Russian leadership. A few days later, China made it clear that it would in no case help to carry out such sanctions. Consequently, Netanyahu believed it necessary to pay a visit to the Chinese leadership, in order to bring them on course through an Israeli word of command.

But the Chinese leadership did not even once want to see Netanyahu. So “Bibi” had to stay home. On Feb. 25, 2010, Israel sent a high-ranking government delegation to Beijing, including Vice Premier Moshe Yaalon, as well as the currency bank chief, Stanley Fischer, in order to move the Chinese leadership to hard sanctions against Iran.”

Vitamin D 'triggers and arms' the immune system

The so-called sunshine vitamin, which can be obtained from food or manufactured by human skin exposed to the sun, plays a key role in boosting the immune system, researchers believe.

In particular it triggers and arms the body's T cells, the cells in the body that seek out and destroy any invading bacteria and viruses.

Scientists at the University of Copenhagen have discovered that Vitamin D is crucial to activating our immune defences and that without sufficient intake of the vitamin, the killer cells of the immune system – T cells – will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body.

New bill allows U.S. citizens to be kidnapped and detained without trial indefinitely based on “suspected activity”

Since the establishment media is convinced that tea party members, 9/11 truthers, libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, and basically anyone with a dissenting political opinion is a likely domestic terrorist, they should be celebrating the fact that a new bill would allow the government to detain such people as “enemy belligerents” indefinitely and without trial based on their “suspected activity”.

Strained US – China Relations: China’s Crucial Role as America's Creditor

Ultimately what we have is a conflict between two diametrically opposing political economic systems.

On the one hand, a United States military driven empire, which focuses on conquering Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran, backs the ambitions of a militarist Israel, seeks marginal client states in Latin America and militarizes Pakistan, Colombia and Mexico.

On the other hand, China deepens its economic ties with dynamic Asian countries; increases its oil links with Saudi Arabia, Iran, the Gulf States, Venezuela, Russia and Angola; displaces the US as the leading trading partner of Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile; and increases its trade and investment links with Southern Africa in minerals and related infrastructure projects. The contrast is striking.

Zionism Unmasked

February 10, 2010 by Jeff Gates

While Zionism is clearly a nationalist ideology, that narrow framing does the term an injustice as it is so much more.

Zionism is more accurately described as a strategy for targeting thought and emotion as a means to influence behavior. Naïve Jews were its first victims when induced to identify with an enclave in the Middle East that President Harry Truman, a Christian Zionist, was induced to recognize as a “state.”
