Clinton Insists She Pressed Israeli DM on Gaza Blockade

Though the Obama Administration’s official meetings with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak centered mostly on planning more moves against Iran, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insists that she did bring up the ongoing blockade of the Gaza Strip.

“We discussed it at length,” Clinton told reporters, “we hope to see progress there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has rarely had a more geopolitically impotent Secretary of State than we have in Clinton.

Were I a betting person, I would bet that there will be absolutely no change in the siege of Gaza for some time to come.

Israeli DM: No Need to Coordinate With US on Attacking Iran

At his visit to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), an AIPAC founded think tank, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak reiterated his calls for Western nations to keep “all options” open in moving against Iran. But more importantly, he suggested Israel might attack Iran even beyond American objections.

“I don’t think that there is a need to coordinate in this regard,” Barak insisted, adding later in the speech that Israel has always “felt very proud that we never asked the Americans to come and fight for us.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Ehud, you made the claim in public that "...Israel has always “felt very proud that we never asked the Americans to come and fight for us.”?!?

Some Americans have a long memory, sir.

Israel Urges US to Attack Iraq: "Sooner, Rather than Later"

"Sharon's advisor: Urges US to accelerate aggression on Iraq, says postponement bad for Israel"

"A former Israeli ambassador to Washington who is now advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has urged the Israeli government to step up pressure on the Bush Administration to accelerate the war on Iraq."

'Zalman Shuval said in an article in the Hebrew newspaper Yedeot Ahranot, published Thursday 16 January, that Israel should make behind-the-scene efforts to get the American administration to attack Iraq "sooner rather than later." '

Shuval argued that while Israel shouldn't brazenly appear as pushing the Bush Administration to attack Iraq, the Jewish state should never ignore or be oblivious to the risks of a postponed war on Iraq."

I will never forget this push to war, to "neutralize" yet another of Israel's "existential threats" in the region. And again, Iraq and Saddam Hussein were accused of having weapons of mass destruction, which was part of the pack of lies upon which that war was sold to the American people.

Neither do those people who fought in this war.

Nor the families and friends of those military service members who died or got maimed for life.

But I'll tell you what; if you start this war (which has been wargamed by Israeli intelligence as having an unclear outcome, with possibly horrendous unforeseen consequences), the US government should let you finish it all by yourself, and see what happens.

Then, the US should yank every bit of economic and military funding from Israel, permanently.

The New American Century

While Massimo Mazzuccos first political documentary, GLOBAL DECEIT (2006), focused on the long list of inconsistencies in the official version of the 9/11 attacks, THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY explores the historical, philosophical and economic background that suggests a matrix for such events that is much closer to home than the so-called "Islamic terrorism". The film provides solid evidence for the true reasons behind the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, whose unfolding is described in chilling detail in a document called "Project for the New American Century", published in the year 2,000, that seems to have served as the actual blueprint for such dramatic events

Hawaii Officials Reportedly to Evacuate Coastal Areas After Chile Quake Triggers Tsunami Warning

The evacuations will begin at 6 a.m. Saturday (11 a.m. EST), KHON2.com reported.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center also issued a tsunami advisory for the coast of California and an Alaskan coastal area from Kodiak to Attu islands.

The first waves were expected to arrive in Hawaii at 11:19 a.m. (4:19 p.m. EST).

US Eyes Massive Offensive in Kandahar

Reiterating previous comments, several officials in the Obama Administration say that they will soon launch a massive offensive against Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province.

While the agricultural community of Marjah had some value to the Taliban, it was mostly by virtue of it being entirely out of the Karzai government’s control since the 2001 US invasion. Kandahar, on the other hand, is the Taliban’s “heartland,” and resistance is likely to be enormous.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The assault on Kandahar will result in a bloodbath, with US and NATO forces killing everything that moves.

Russia Angered By US Missile Defense Plan

Russia has serious concerns about U.S. plans to deploy missile interceptors in Romania, the Foreign Ministry said Friday.

The statement from ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko reflected Moscow's irritation about the U.S. missile defense plans and signaled tensions in relations with Washington.

Nesterenko said that Russia has been annoyed to learn about the move from the media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It almost appears that the announcements about the deployments of missiles to Romania were engineered to absolutely scuttle the upcoming nuclear talks between the US and Russia.

Ex-U.S. ally Chalabi, now closer to Iran, on ballot in Iraq

The Bush administration introduced Ahmad Chalabi, the former U.S. ally and perennially controversial Iraqi politician, as a secular, pro-Western Mr. Fix-It who could slide right into Saddam Hussein's old seat.

Now, he's No. 3 on an electoral ticket alongside Iraq's biggest Shiite Muslim factions and his name is cropping up regularly as a potential prime minister. If Chalabi does, finally, ascend to an elected post in Iraq, Washington won't be cheering. These days, the nimble politician's fortunes are more closely tied to militant Shiite factions and their allies in Tehran than they are to Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get my head wrapped around this.

The greatest benefactor from the US invasion and occupation of Iraq is.....Iran?!?!?!?

Death toll reaches 78 in Chilean quake as scientists issue tsunami warning

The quake, registered at magnitude 8.8 on the Richter scale, caused buildings and bridges to collapse and led to power-black outs in parts of the Chilean capital, Santiago, 200 miles from the epicentre.

British experts said a tsunami was now radiating from the epicentre towards Hawaii and other settlements on the Pacific Ring of Fire. The tsunami's ferocity is not yet known.

Images broadcast on television in Chile showed debris had broken off buildings in Santiago and crashed into the streets below, as the city was plunged into darkness by power failures.

Why Real Conservatives Oppose the War on Terror

In short, real conservatives who believe in small government, fiscal responsibility, a rational foreign policy based on the national interest, and non-involvement in other people's quarrels should never support global wars on terror or global wars on anything. They should reject completely the insidious and absurd notion that Washington can intervene all over the world and not raise taxes to pay for the cost, handing our security over to the Chinese lenders and bankrupting our children and grandchildren. Some in Washington have already seen the folly of our present course and are speaking out.

A "Good" Terrorist Captured by Iran

The Iranian government is celebrating the capture of Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of a violent group called Jundullah (Arabic for Soldiers of God), which Tehran says is a terrorist organization supported by the United States, Great Britain and Israel.

Jundullah is one of several groups that have been conducting bombings and other violent attacks against Iran’s Islamic regime with the aim of knocking it off balance.

Bill Gates' $10 Billon Vaccine Scam

Malaria is a parasite-based disease noted for its variety and quick development of resistance to medication. Any "vaccine," if even a billion dollars is able to produce such, would have a limited lifetime and new, patented medications would have to be bought by Africa's poor every few years.

So "donating" a billion dollars to develop a malaria "vaccine" could turn into tens of billions of dollars in drug sales in Africa alone, and Bill Gates, through his drug company investments, will quietly pocket more African blood money.

Cybersecurity bill to give president new emergency powers

According to an aide familiar with the proposal, the bill includes a mandate for federal agencies to prepare emergency response plans in the event of a massive, nationwide cyberattack.

The president would then have the ability to initiate those network contingency plans to ensure key federal or private services did not go offline during a cyberattack of unprecedented scope, the aide said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering Jay Rockefeller's attitude toward the internet,

as documented here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct9xzXUQLuY&feature=youtube_gdata

one can hardly be surprised by the draconian legislation he is proposing here.

Let us hope that saner heads will prevail, and that this bill is not passed into law.

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.

An Accidental Experience with a Health System that Seems to Work

In any case my turn for treatment came soon enough. The doctor and a nurse did a careful job of sewing me up, pulling the wound together with two layers of stitches. Then they sent me on my way, with a letter of instructions to my American doctor about what they’d done, and when he should plan on pulling out the stitches.

On the way out, I passed through the billing room, where the nurse introduced me to a billing office clerk. My bill for the ER visit: $200.

It's refreshing to know that there are countries which are actually making medicine and health care work for their citizens.

Unfortunately, it sure as heck isn't the US of A!!

Big Pharma Fabricates "Female Sexual Dysfunction" to Sell More Drugs

The pharmaceutical industry is attempting to convince the public that a variety of normal conditions affecting the majority of women should be classified as "female sexual dysfunction" and treated with drugs.

The medical establishment has a long history of treating the female body as sexually dysfunctional, from when Hippocrates first attributed "hysteria" to a wandering uterus. According to JoAnn Wypijewski, former senior editor of The Nation, this perspective fell out of favor with the sexual revolution of the 1970s but has since re-emerged.

New Israeli Law Forbids Palestinians From Mourning Or "Showing Signs Of Sadness"

A new law in Israel makes it a crime to commemorate what Palestinians call the "Nakba", the "catastrophe" of their dispossession by the creation of the Zionist state in 1948. The Knesset, Israel's parliament, has passed "The Nakba Draft Law" after just one reading. Penalties will be imposed on anyone showing signs of sadness and mourning within the (undefined) borders of Israel on 15 May; Palestinians remember on that day the creation of the refugee crisis that remains after 62 years.

The group of settlers were accompanied by armed Israeli soldiers, and locals reported a palatable tension in the ancient quarters of the city.

This gigantic scheme completely ignored long standing law of commerce relating to mortgage lending and did so for its own personal gain. That the inevitable collapse of the crooked mortgage swindles would lead to terrible national repercussions was a matter of little or no interest to the upper levels of America’s banking and financial world because the only interest of these entities was to grab the money of suckers, keep it in the form of ficticious bonuses, real estate and very large accounts in foreign banks.

More than that, the space program was a part of the nation's collective identity. Despite its politics and problems, NASA was one of the few aspects of America we could still feel a sense of pride about. With the coming evisceration, there is little left about the USA to feel good about. We are a nation of torturers, war criminals, conquerors, and looters.

High court to define reach of gun-control laws

The case marks the second round of high-stakes litigation over the breadth of the Second Amendment — and will likely have wider impact nationwide than the first. In June 2008, the justices struck down a Washington, D.C., handgun ban and declared for the first time that the Second Amendment covers an individual right to keep and bear arms.

The new question is whether the 2008 decision also applies to cities and states, or only to laws in the federal government and its enclaves, such as Washington. It sets up another major constitutional question with ramifications for scores of mostly urban gun regulations.

Political moments this ripe are about as rare as the California condor, and Ron Paul would do us all an incalculable service if he would seize the day, and declare his intention to run in the 2012 presidential election. He needs to do this right now. Not next month, not next year, but now.

For Israel, every traveller is an ambassador

Israel has come under harsh criticism for waging a one-sided war against Hamas in Gaza, for possible involvement in assassinations and for belligerent comments by its foreign minister towards some of its neighbours – and the government has decided to fight back.

It is enlisting the help of citizen-diplomats to take the battle to foreign destinations. But instead of tackling its human-rights or international-relations image, the Israeli government wants the world to know Israelis don't ride camels or eat only kebabs, if a just-unveiled series of TV spots is an indicator.

The Sixth Annual Israeli Apartheid Week 2010

Solidarity in Action: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions
March 2010

Mark your calendars - the 6th International Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place across the globe from from the 1st to the 14th of March 2010!

Since it was first launched in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. Last year, more than 40 cities around the world participated in the week's activities, which took place in the wake of Israel's brutal assault against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. IAW continues to grow with new cities joining this year.

Evil Triumphs

When good men do nothing. So now the question is, are there any good men left after Joe Stack? The "yoke" of taxation has caused so many to up-rise and shed blood through out history one with a functioning brain might think maybe, just maybe, terrorizing the citizenry to extort taxes might not be the best of ideas, as this is exactly the IRS's method of operations, all the while trying to convince us it is voluntary. Yea right, try to opt out of this voluntary tax system and wind up dead, in prison, or with an asshole a 747 can fly through sideways. That is your options. You can volunteer to drop out of the income tax shakedown if you like the idea of being a worm farm.

Afghanistan capital Kabul hit by suicide attack

Explosions and gunfire in the centre of the Afghan capital, Kabul, have left at least 17 people dead, officials say.

The attack took place in an area of hotels and guesthouses popular with foreigners. Up to nine Indians, a Frenchman and an Italian were killed.

US folly unites Iran and Syria

How can US policy-makers not know that until they formulate a policy that is as firm on the Israelis as it is on the Palestinians, their attempts to curb other problems in the region – such as Iran’s and Syria’s defiant foreign policies – will only be in vain? Surely the country’s intelligentsia should have acknowledged by now that Iran is able to fulfill its strategic ambitions in the Middle East largely through discontent around the region for American policy toward the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, US foreign policy is utterly under Israeli control at this time.

Only when this country can finally break free of this can we actually look at having a truly sane, long-term, and productive foreign policy in the Middle East which may achieve some level of peace and stability for both a Palestinian state, and for Israel.

First Wind swindle has just committed another heist

“First Wind has ties to the administration of President Barack Obama. A New York City hedge fund, D.E. Shaw & Co., is a major investor in First Wind, according to statements issued in recent years by First Wind. Lawrence H. Summers, who now heads Obama’s National Economic Council, was a compensated managing director at D.E. Shaw before leaving late last year.

The firm’s founder, David E. Shaw, is a member of Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.”

At the 9/3/09 Hornell Town Meeting, Congressman Eric Massa expressed his profound outrage with this despicable and unconscionable abuse of public funds. He vowed to initiate a GAO investigation into the issuance of the grant, hoping to block the funds.

On March 10, in the Israeli city of Haifa, American peace activist Rachel Corrie will get her day in court. Rachel’s parents, Cindy and Craig Corrie, are bringing suit against the Israeli defence ministry for Rachel’s killing by an Israeli military bulldozer in Gaza in March 2003.

Four key American and British witnesses who were present at the scene – members of the International Solidarity Movement – will be allowed into Israel to testify, despite having been barred previously by the Israeli authorities from entering the country. This reversal by the Israeli authorities is apparently due to U.S. government pressure, the Guardian reports. (Three cheers for any U.S. officials who contributed to this pressure. What else could you make the Israeli government do?)

Jim Bunning Repeatedly Blocks Unemployment Benefits Extension, Tells Dem 'Tough Shit'

Jim Bunning, a Republican from Kentucky, is single-handedly blocking Senate action needed to prevent an estimated 1.2 million American workers from prematurely losing their unemployment benefits next month.

Bunning says he doesn't oppose extending benefits -- he just doesn't want the money that's required added to the deficit. He proposes paying for the 30-day extension with stimulus funds. The Senate's GOP leadership did not support him in his objections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Bunning wants reduce the deficit, he should stop the funding of these wars without end and the massive increase in military spending, rather than potentially hold up unemployment benefits.

It is a very good thing for the people of Kentucky and the the US that this man is not running in the next election cycle.

He's like a playground bully -- on steroids!

According to a recent poll, only 23% of the American people want Congress to pass the anti-gun ObamaCare bill.

So what is Obama's current plan?


ObamaCare is already the product of fraud, secrecy, bribery, and corruption. But Obama is preparing to ratchet up this corruption to a whole new level.

Mossad Agents with Fake Pass in Malta

The assassination of Mohammed Mabhouh in Dubai was not the first International crime which Mossad death squads committed by using the fake or stolen European passports. There is a long record full of assassinations which were carried out by the Israeli death squads in Europe and in many other countries. The latest crime, the assassination of Mohammad Al-Mabhouh in Dubai and the full details which the police of Dubai exposed, raises once again the question about the relationship between the European countries and Israel, especially those countries in which the Mossad has carried out crimes in the past.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate the word "Assassination" because it implies some kind or arcane acceptability even though the killing is extra-judicial. I think we need to call these crimes what they are; murders. Israel is traveling around the world murdering people, no different than when the mafia whacks someone they don't like.

An appeal to anti-war organizations & activists to oppose the increasing threats against Iran

Around the world, anti-war activists are preparing for major protests this spring to oppose the continuing U.S.-led occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Meanwhile, a storm of developments is dramatically increasing tensions between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran. In response, the Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran (CASMII) is issuing this appeal to the anti-war movements in the United States, United Kingdom and other countries to raise the demands of “No war, no sanctions, no internal interference in Iran!”

A number of economic reports in the last few days indicate that the U.S. economy has not only not failed to recover from the recession, but continues to fall deeper into a hole. Banking, consumer confidence, employment numbers, durable goods and the housing industry - each representing a different aspect of the economy - are all sending out troubling signs. Despite the onslaught of negative data, mainstream economists continue to echo the official U.S. government view that "the recovery is still on track."

The Iran Threat? ... more of the same

In September last year, US ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)Glyn Daviesdeclared that Iran had now acquired "possible breakout capacity" if it decided to enrich its uranium to bomb-grade level. American intelligence reportedly found that despite having enough nuclear fuel "to make a rapid, if risky, sprint for a nuclear weapon", the regime had "deliberately stopped short of the critical last steps to make a bomb."

Yet after Ahmedinejad's declaration of plans to ramp up enrichment to a higher 20 per cent level, White House officials responded with scepticism, putting the statement down to "politics not physics."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey White House; if Iran can;t make 20% enriched uranium, they sure as hell can't get to the 95% required for a weapon.

The UN nuclear agency, the US and Iran

The clear purpose of such claims is to heighten fears that Iran is pushing ahead with secret, nuclear weapons programs, as is commonly asserted as fact in the more rabid sections of the American media. Yet the IAEA report contained no new evidence of Iranian nuclear weapons programs and no evidence at all of any “current” research. The shift in emphasis in the document has far more to do with the change in agency’s director than any concern for the facts. The reality is that the IAEA has become politicised by the issue of Iran’s nuclear programs to the point where its ostensibly technical reports have provoked sharp internal divisions.

The Iran Threat - More of the same

"Iran has for long stated its willingness to implement the IAEA’s ‘Additional Protocol’, an entirely voluntary measure which would subject Iran’s nuclear facilities to an even more stringent and intrusive international inspection process, and which would satisfy US and EU professed demands for ‘proof’, while also permitting a multilateral consortium to adjudicate uranium enrichment within Iran – as long the international community equally recognizes Iran’s NPT-stipulated right to develop its own peaceful nuclear enrichment programme. Yet detailed proposals along these lines have been repeatedly ignored and rejected out-of-hand by both the US and the EU."

American Sponsored Terrorism -AbdolMalek Rigi: Jundullah

You are either with us, or

AbdolMalek Rigi, Iran's most wanted man for mass murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, acts of sabotage and bombings has been arrested by Iran.

Citing US and Pakistani intelligence sources, the news group of an American televison network, ABC, reported in 2007 that the terrorist group "has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials" to destabilize the government of Iran.

Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh revealed in another report in July 2008 that US Congressional leaders had secretly agreed to former President George W. Bush's USD 400 million funding request, which gave the US a free hand in arming and funding terrorist groups such as Jundallah militants.

Climate Scientists: January Was 'Hottest' Ever

Despite images of Europe crippled by a deep freeze and parts of the United States blasted by blizzards, the pace of global warming continues unabated, climate scientists claimed Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... all of whose grants and salaries will evaporate the moment they admit there is no global warming taking place.

After all the data shown to have been manipulated and falsified, these people have the gall to come back in the middle of yet another record snowstorm and toss more dubious numbers at us to prove that freezing equals global warming in the hopes that because they are using a satellite as their source, that you will not dare to doubt it.

Except that it wasn't all that long ago that the US claimed satellites proved Saddam was about to invade Saudi Arabia (he wasn't; Images purchased from a commercial satellite showed empty desert along the border). And scientists insisted that Satellites showed Noah's Ark on top of Mt. Ararat. That too turned out to be a hoax and a bluff.

The World Meteorological Organization cited as the authority for this claim is a part of the United Nations, which is pushing the global warming hoax to justify global carbon taxes and a new global government. World Meteorological Organization was created to come up with the "data" the IPCC was waving around. Yet the claim in this article that "2000-2009 was the hottest decade since records began in 1850" is directly contradicted by the recent interview with Dr. Phil Jones, the former head of Hadley CRU, who reversed himself and admitted that there isn't any statistically significant signs of warming for that same period of time.

"Freedom is slavery."

"War is peace."

"Ignorance is Strength."

"Freezing is global warming."

Global Warming Update

Punish the liars!


"Mounting evidence suggests that claims of manmade global warming might turn out to be the greatest hoax in mankind's history."

Certainly one of the biggest, but there are some other contenders now, and with the reality of a massive conspiracy to lie the world into carbon taxes and global government laid bare to all it is time to add LYING as an Olympic sport.

So, nominations are now open for your choice of the greatest lie ever told to the world. Send them in and we will have an online poll to see who gets the (fake) gold medal!

The Truth About 9/11

The Truth About 9/11

In the past year, in response to emerging independent science on the 9/11 attacks, nine corporate, seven public, and two independent media outlets aired analytic programs investigating the official account.

Increasingly, the issue is treated as a scientific controversy worthy of debate, rather than as a "conspiracy theory" ignoring science and common sense.

This essay presents these media analyses in the form of 18 case studies.

The First Test That Proves General Theory of Relativity Wrong

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, a moving mass should create another field, called gravitomagnetic field, besides its static gravitational field. This field has now been measured for the first time and to the scientists' astonishment, it proved to be no less than one hundred million trillion times larger than Einstein's General Relativity predicts.
