Forbes : Julian Assange, information for profit

Assange: I'm Influenced by "American libertarianism,
market libertarianism"
Matt Welch | November 30, 2010
Forbes has a big interview up with controversial Wikileaks impresario Julian Assange. This section in particular will be of interest to Reason readers:
"I have mixed attitudes towards capitalism, but I love markets."
"To put it simply, in order for there to be a market, there has to be information. A perfect market requires perfect information."

WIKILEAKS EXPOSES ISRAELI MAFIA’S GROWING INFLUENCE

Cable reveals Mafia-government connection — But US media don’t care to dig for the story

By Justin Raimondo

I love how the pundits are yawning over the latest WikiLeaks revelations: oh, there’s nothing to see here, it’s all so boring, no “smoking gun,” so let’s just move right along. These people are just plain lazy: they want “scoops” delivered to their front doors, all neatly packaged and labeled as such. In short, they don’t want to have to do any work, beyond the usual cut-and-paste. Which is why a lot of the really juicy stuff coming out of WikiLeaks continues to elude them.

Helen Thomas' school scraps award over 'Zionists' remark

Wayne State University, the Detroit, Michigan, institution that Thomas graduated from in 1942, said in a statement Friday that the school will no longer give out the Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in the Media Award.

"Wayne State encourages free speech and open dialogue, and respects diverse viewpoints," the school's statement said. "However, the university strongly condemns the anti-Semitic remarks made by Helen Thomas during a conference yesterday."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at the freedom medals, the Oscars, and the Nobel Peace Prize, it has become obvious that these awards are handed out not for merit but for obedience. As long as you can be brainwashed into thinking that these little bits of metal and ribbon really mean something, and that you should want them, you will forever be a slave to whatever those who hand out such trinkets want you to think, say, or do.

Helen Thomas understands a great truth and one you would do well to study; that the first step in being free of those who would enslave you is to free yourself from wanting what it is they hand out as treats to their favorite pets. The day you willingly walk away from awards, or decide you no longer want the cushy prestigious jobs in media/entertainment, that is the day you stop being a slave, and can tell the world what you honestly think is the truth.

As Obama and Al Gore proved, these "coveted" awards are handed out to help sell the credibility of a person and an agenda to a gullible public. I thank Wayne State University for ending their Helen Thomas Award because by the mere act of having done so, Wayne State University proved that award was never worthy of the person it was named for. In claiming "Wayne State encourages free speech and open dialogue, and respects diverse viewpoints" at the very same time they punish Helen Thomas for her viewpoint, Wayne State has not only proclaimed its own servitude to Israel, not only made itself a laughing stock before the world, but demonstrated that American academia, once the bastion of freedom of inquiry and the exchange of ideas, has deteriorated into just another pointless and costly fashion accessory purchased on credit and worn to bolster ones self-image

Helen Thomas does not have an award.

Helen Thomas does not need an award.

In speaking truth to power at the expense of her career, Helen Thomas has firmly established herself as the Edward R. Murrow of our time.


P.S. Dear Wayne State University.

Helen Thomas is of Lebanese descent. Lebanese are Arab Semitic. So Helen is herself a Semite. Are the clueless idiots at Wayne State University now to be considered anti-Semitic?

HELL YES!!!!!!! :)

PAUL BALLES : CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST

Why is the American public generally unaware of Israel’s theft of U S military secrets?

The Western media adamantly refuses to report anything critical of Israel.

Gordon Duff, Senior Editor at Veterans Today, observed that “America learned, long ago with the infamous Jonathan Pollard case, that secrets going to Israel end up in the hands of America’s enemies.”

According to Duff, “America’s most vital Cold War defence information, nuclear technology, air defence systems, classified weapons and even NATO defence plans in case of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, all went to Russia as part of an arrangement between the Soviets and Israel. Pollard is doing life in prison for this.”

RICHARD FALK : Ahmet Davutoglu — Turkey’s Foreign Minister

Given the flow of recent events I felt it might be helpful to make my appreciation of Davutoglu’s approach and achievements available to an American voice.

Over a year ago I published a short profile of the Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, in the Turkish daily newspaper, The New Zaman. After the May 31, 2010 flortilla incident involving an Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla led by the Turkish passenger ship, Mavi Marmara, Mr. Davutoglu demanded an apology from Israel as the basis for the restoration of normal relations. Along with other Turkish leaders, Davutoglu questioned the Israeli narrative and criticized Israel for its brutal tactics that defied international law and morality.

Sat Dec 4th, Colorado Public Television broadcasts Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup

Welcome Colorado Public Television Channel 12 Viewers!

A few thoughts after the broadcast….

If you saw the broadcast of “Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup” on Colorado Public Television Channel 12, you may be feeling a variety of things–from curiosity to depression to anger or fear. This is normal. If our government was involved in sponsoring the events of 9/11 in any way, the implications of this are truly horrific for our country. This is a very difficult subject for all of us. Recognizing this, we’d like to offer a few thoughts.

ADL slams Helen Thomas as 'vulgar anti-Semite'

Helen Thomas doubled down on the controversial comments that led to the end of her long career during a speech yesterday to an Arab-American group in Dearborn, Mich., prompting a fierce condemnation by the Anti-Defamation League.

“I can call a president of the United States anything in the book, but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank,” Thomas said. “No Americans would tolerate that — white-only roads.”

“We are owned by the propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is. ... We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.”

FRANKLIN LAMB : BELLEMARE’S STL ‘PROCEDURAL’ PROBLEMS

Indict, Quit and Blame the system!

Based on phone and internet discussions with international lawyers at the London School of Economics, the International Court of Justice in the Hague, and colleagues who work in the area of Public International Law an emerging consensus is developing concerning perhaps fatal procedural issues that continue to arise at the STL. Such problems, which make it unlikely that the Hariri Assassination case will ever go to trial. Some international lawyers who have worked on international tribunals, are familiar with Rules of Procedures at the ICJ and the ICC and are following the STL are increasingly concluding that there will not be a Trial.

On reality and its alternates: Glenn Beck vs. Julian Assange

Glenn Beck, our first personality, is an under-educated radio and TV personality turned political pundit. He was born in 1964 and has only a high school education. By his own admission Beck spent at least 15 years of his early adult life as an alcoholic and drug addict. He became suicidal in the mid 1990s and fantasied about imitating the manner of death chosen by the singer Kurt Cobain. He was pulled back from the brink with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous. Fifteen years is a long time to baste a young adult's brain in mind-altering substances, and I will leave it to the reader to decide if that history qualifies such a brain for political preaching. Yet, it is as a political wise man that millions of Americans now regard Glenn Beck.

WIKILEAKS SHOCKER: Did Abbas know in advance about the devastating blitz on his countrymen in Gaza?

By Stuart Littlewood

One of the most grotesque Wikileaks revelations so far is the disclosure that Palestinian top dog (Fatah section), Mahmoud Abbas, was told in advance about the murderous assault on his countrymen in Gaza two years ago.

Some claim that the Wikileaks reye-openers are a ‘dirty tricks’ operation by people with a large axe to grind. It is certainly odd that ‘evidence’ is selected to portray Arab states as eager to see Iran zapped for an unproven nuclear threat when, actually, the Middle East is far more anxious about the very real and present nuclear threat from Israel.

JEFF GATES: WIKILEAKS AND THE SOUND OF SILENCE

The facts suggest that WikiLeaks is less about the right to know than the right to deceive.

Jeff Gates

The scope and scale of WikiLeaks is a marvel to behold. Some praise it as the ultimate form of democracy. Others as the epitome of the most sacred of liberty’s principles: the right to know.

Yet the real story here is not what’s revealed but what’s withheld. The marvel is not what we now know but what is already known that is left unsaid. And what is given an interpretive spin by those newspapers granted priority access.

The Wiki Hoax

There are two opinions of Wikileaks. The worlds intelligence services all, every single one, believes Wikileaks is simply an intelligence agency playing games. They say this to each other, Vladimir Putin and Zbigniew Brzezinski have announced it to the world and others are following suit.

Nobody, at least nobody typically “answerable” will say the word “Israel” but it is what they mean when they say “intelligence agency.” They mean Israel. Every Wikileak does something to help Israel in a different way at a different time. If Israel has a problem, a Wikileak is there., part of the solution. This time, Secretary Clinton was in the way and Wikileaks showed up to gut the State Department and give Israel the usual “buff and polish” job they usually do.

Flashback: The Gulf of Tonkin Incident (How US military exercises, provocation and misleading claims of enemy aggression lead to the Vietnam war)

In the absence of independent journalism, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution — the closest thing there ever was to a declaration of war against North Vietnam — sailed through Congress on Aug. 7. (Two courageous senators, Wayne Morse of Oregon and Ernest Gruening of Alaska, provided the only "no" votes.) The resolution authorized the president "to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression."

The rest is tragic history.

Nearly three decades later, during the Gulf War, columnist Sydney Schanberg warned journalists not to forget "our unquestioning chorus of agreeability when Lyndon Johnson bamboozled us with his fabrication of the Gulf of Tonkin incident."

Schanberg blamed not only the press but also "the apparent amnesia of the wider American public."

And he added: "We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth."

Cdn 9/11 Gatekeeper Jonathan Kay attacks academic freedom

It seems that Mr. Kay believes his versions of controversial issues such as 9/11, vaccines and fluoride in drinking water should not be contradicted in classroom teachings, in particular, regardless of where the truth lies on any of these issues. There is only one correct version of these issues, according to Mr. Kay, and that's his version – which also happens to be the version of corporations with a vested interest in all of these issues.

In a previous Canadian Charger article, we pointed out that in researching his forthcoming book, Mr. Kay avoids evidence related to 9/11 and solely focuses on attacking the mental soundness of those academics and professors who've written papers disputing the official version of 9/11, even going so far as to call them delusional, although Mr. Kay has no psychiatric credentials whatsoever to be making such claims about anyone, let alone respected university professors. We also wondered – in that article – why a major newspaper such as the National Post would print such drivel.

Mental Ghettos Weaken the US: People Who Lie to Themselves

This special kind of stupidity is independent of inherent intelligence. In this case brain power is overpowered by psychological deficiency, namely self-delusion.

This delusion is not genetically produced, but is a result of external influences, notably political, government, media and corporate propaganda intentionally designed to produce delusional beliefs and thinking. Who does this? All sorts of commercial and political interests. The result is a series of biases and blocks, such as cognitive dissonance, to objective facts and information that creates denial about very important conditions affecting the planet, the nation and individuals. People afflicted with this deadly combination appear stupid to those outside their mental ghetto that they gladly inhabit, along with similarly afflicted people.

Netanyahu, who despises President Barack Obama, has rightly seen the cajoling by the United States as weakness and as the consequence of failure by Washington to articulate any coherent policy in the Middle East, meaning that he knows that Israel has been empowered to get away with virtually anything it might demand. Netanyahu has obligingly gone to the whack jobs and wing nuts in his own rickety right wing coalition and asked them to present him with a wish list for Washington, confident that Hanukkah has already begun and Christmas is right around the corner.

Why Some on the Internet Are Starting to Wonder—Is WikiLeaks for Real?

The global media is in a tizzy, repeating the same mundane, stale information from 251,287 cables released by WikiLeaks, a media organization that claims a loosely organized network of international contributors. Curiously, such publications as The New York Times, Der Spiegel, The Guardian, Le Monde and Spain's El País have carried the leaks dutifully, even though their well-policed pages are otherwise governed by highly divergent philosophies, policies and practices. Even more curiously, all news organizations repeat the same cherry-picked factoids that their ace reporters apparently culled from the documents.

Jonathan Kay Attacks a "Truther" to Introduce His Own Foxified Account of the 9/11 Attacks

Jonathan Kay has made it an issue of national news in The National Post that my graduate student, Joshua Blakeney, is the proud winner of the Queen Elizabeth II scholarship for academic excellence. This award will help Joshua in supporting his research for his MA thesis on the academic controversies surrounding the background, substance, and outgrowths of the events of September 11, 2001.

The Editor of The National Post was in a conflict of interest when he wrote the story on my graduate student's scholarship without revealing that Mr. Kay too has an externally-funded agenda of research and publication on 9/11. Moreover, Mr. Kay misrepresented my graduate student's thesis subject by planting the disinformation that "Washington did 9/11." The point of Mr. Blakeney's thesis, as we have discussed it so far, is to evaluate the academic literature on the contested events of 9/11, not to jump immediately to the needed outcome of an empirically-verifiable alternative to the current unsupported and unsupportable government conspiracy theory. Such a needed outcome will require much more than the forthcoming MA thesis by my gifted and hard working graduate student.

The online publication of a quarter-million documents chronicling diplomatic exchanges is notable both for what's omitted and what's included. To determine whether this latest release was a form of espionage, analysts need only examine how this treasure trove of trivia was peppered with documents certain to damage U.S. relations.

The facts revealed by Odnako point to the use of a sophisticated German weapon. The puzzle is nearly complete. The combination of nuclear and nonotechnology science can trigger an explosion the exact strength of which can be regulated and controlled. The weapon is set up to destroy everything within a given perimeter, down to the nearest centimeter.

SHOULDN’T WIKILEAKS BE RENAMED ZIOLEAKS?

Israel is in it’s full glory today because of the latest Wikileaks ‘leaks’. As was said in a previous post, Had WikiLeaks didn’t exist, Israel would have had to invent it. It appears that in reality, it was.

NY TIMES REFUSED TO PUBLISH CLIMATEGATE EMAILS AND SOFTWARE BECAUSE THEY WERE ILLEGALLY OBTAINED, YET DOES NOT HESITATE TO PROMOTE WIKILEAKS "LEAK!"

Surely readers will recall Times reporter Andrew Revkin's inspiring statement of principle: "The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye, so they won't be posted here."

Interested readers may want to compare and contrast Revkin's statement of principle with the editorial note posted by the Times on the WikiLeaks documents this afternoon. Today the Times cites the availability of the documents elsewhere and the pubic interest in their revelations as supporting their publication by the Times. Both factors applied in roughly equal measure to the Climategate emails.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If one needs further proof that today's WikiLeaks document dump is really a propaganda operation, one need only contrast how the media is treating these documents compared to other genuine leaks in the past.

The Climategate emails were a real leak, one which exposed the reality that the push for carbon taxes and a global environmental authority was built on a massive fraud, one that is rather obvious as we head into our second record setting winter in a row. But the New York Times refused to cover that story on the grounds that the source documents were illegally obtained. Even at the time this seemed a strange editorial position to take, since the New York Times had not hesitated to report on the Pentagon Papers, even though they too were leaked.

And here we are today with the New York Times excerpting and interpreting sections of this WikiLeaks document dump, even though the government maintains that these are illegally obtained, provided by an organization which maintains there was no 9-11 conspiracy, that Osama bin Laden is still alive and running Al Qaeda, and that WMDs were actually found in Iraq!

This isn't news; it is a sales job. The New York Times is trying to sell you a load of propaganda disguised as a leak in the hopes that claims you would discard as obvious lies in the corporate media might be more successful if presented as coming from an organization hostile to the US Government. But again, with WikiLeaks supporting the official stories of 9-11, Osama, and WMDs, it is clear that the hostility between WikiLeaks and Government is about as genuine as that seen on pro wrestling!

And I note that despite the diplomatic crisis triggered by Israel's attack on the aid flotilla last May, not one document critical of Israel appears anywhere in the millions of cables WikiLeaks is feeding you all.

Nov 29 07:26

More WikiLeaks propaganda; world leaders agree with Israel!

Had WikiLeaks didn’t exist, Israel would have had to invent it. The massive leak of US diplomatic documents produces a clear, unequivocal picture: The whole world, and not only Israel, is terrified by the Iranian nuclear threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think Israel did invent WikiLeaks. After all, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange insists there is no 9-11 conspiracy, and not a single criticism of Israel appears anywhere in this latest dump; an impossibility in the wake of the lethal Israeli attack on the aid flotilla last May!

Iran dismisses Wikileaks release

Iran's president has dismissed as propaganda the leaking of US cables detailing Arab calls for Washington to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the release by the Wikileaks website of thousands of extracts from US diplomatic messages was simply psychological warfare against Iran.

He said the release would not affect Iran's relations with other countries.

WikiLeaks: Iran 'obtains North Korea missiles which can strike Europe'

Iran has obtained ballistic missiles from North Korea that could be used to strike Western Europe, the leaked files suggest.

In leaked documents from German newspaper Der Spiegel President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is referred to as 'Hitler'

By Duncan Gardham, Security Correspondent 7:30AM GMT 29 Nov 2010

Secret American intelligence assessments conclude that Iran has obtained a stock of 19 advanced missiles, based on a Russian design.

The missiles could give Iran the capacity to strike at capitals in Western Europe as close as Berlin, or Moscow.

They could also use the missile technology to develop even more powerful inter-continental ballistic missiles, the cable warns.

HOW 250,000 US EMBASSY CABLES WERE LEAKED

An innocuous-looking memory stick, no longer than a couple of fingernails, came into the hands of a Guardian reporter earlier this year. The device is so small it will hang easily on a keyring. But its contents will send shockwaves through the world’s chancelleries and deliver what one official described as “an epic blow” to US diplomacy. The 1.6 gigabytes of text files on the memory stick ran to millions of words: the contents of more than 250,000 leaked state department cables, sent from, or to, US embassies around the world.

Wikileaks and the Setup to End Free Speech: The US Embassy Cable "Leaks"

Wikileaks, me thinks, is the Hegelian Dialectic, the Problem/Reaction/Solution for the coming shutdown of the internet, and dictatorial assault on free speech and targeting all of us, the new media, as enemies of the state. This is what the Rockefellers and Sen. Joe Lieberman want, being big fans of the Chinese model of a kill switch. If you believe the media darling and "whistleblower" Czar Assange is genuine, I have some property and a business offer to sell this corporation to you, Brewster Jennings and Associates.

WILL THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY DECLARE AN INDEPENDENT STATE… OR COLLAPSE? - BY STUART LITTLEWOOD

Fatah, with a history of sleaze and corruption, has taken on a role similar to that of the hated Milice in World War 2, the ass-licking paramilitary outfit set up by the Vichy French government, with Nazi help, to fight the French Resistance and do much of the Nazis’ dirty work. Parallels with what’s happening now in the Holy Land are unmistakable.

US Lies About N. Korea Situation

Every war is built on lies. That's the message of David Swanson's classic book, WAR IS A LIE.

We're seeing it today as the situation with North Korea unfolds.

Admiral Mullen blames the violence on N. Korean efforts to blackmail the world for more aid.

Others say that there's a new crazy leader.

The truth is, the US is holding war games with S. Korea, very close to North Korea. That is why North Korea is responding... RESPONDING to provocation.

What are the reasons for such provocative action by the US?

Obama could use a "good" war, that appears fully justified.

ON REALITY AND ITS ALTERNATES – BY DR. LAWRENCE DAVIDSON

Beck vs. Assange and What it all Means
Too many Americans, and their leaders as well, haven’t got an accurate sense of the real world. In part, that is why the U.S. government regularly formulates domestic and foreign policies that answer the demands of interest groups while harming the rest of us. Such policies fail in the long run. In doing so they open political space for both charlatans and truth tellers. And here they are in the persons of Glenn Beck and Julian Assange.

Steven Spielberg: Body Snatcher–A Review of the Miniseries “Band of Brothers”

The 9th episode of Band of Brothers, titled “Why We Fight”, represents an unprecedented level of ambition — to claim America’s WWII sacrifices as motivated by the desire to save Jews from Nazi persecution, to make America’s sacrifice in WWII all about the Jews, not about Americans doing their duty in a tragic internecine conflict.

WALL WRITINGS: CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE

Currently there is considerable anger in our political dialogue. An embattled president faces a Congress with many members who have achieved power by promoting fear over hope. It is a formula for short term political gain and long term national disaster.

In such a time we might despair. One commenter in a recent posting on this blog admonished me to stop “bouncing back to MLK events”. I do not agree; this is no time to forget history.

ONE HUNDRED FAMOUS NORWEGIANS CALL FOR CULTURAL AND ACADEMIC BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL

One hundred famous Norwegians, led by the country’s national football coach, have signed a petition demanding a cultural and academic boycott of Israel, accusing its educational institutions of “playing a key role in the occupation” and equating it with apartheid.

Egil Drillo Olsen, coach for the national Norwegian football team, recently wrote in Aftenposten, the country’s second largest paper, that the call to boycott Israel was “in line with what 90 percent of the world’s population believes. There cannot be many other opinions.”

GORDON DUFF: WIKILEAKS, A TOUCH OF ASSANGE AND THE STENCH OF AIPAC

“recent admissions that the Israeli lobby, AIPAC, routinely receives masses of classified information makes them suspect #1 for being the source of Wikileaks”

Wikileaks is an intelligence operation to weaken and undermine the American government, orchestrated from Tel Aviv, using dozens of operatives, dual citizens, some at the highest authority levels, spies for Israel. Through leaking carefully selected intelligence along with proven falsified documents, all fed to a controlled press, fully complicit, Wikileaks is, in fact, an act of war against the United States.

PEARL HARBOR MOTHER OF ALL CONSPIRACIES

President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -

1. denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)
2. on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on
3. having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

FBI response to the top British spy, Dusko Popov (code named "Tricycle") on August 10, 1941, dismissing Popov's report of the complete Japanese plan for the attack on Pearl Harbor.

President Roosevelt's Campaign To Incite War in Europe: The Secret Polish Documents

Roosevelt's aid to Britain and the Soviet Union in violation of American neutrality and international law, his acts of war against Germany in the Atlantic in an effort to provoke a German declaration of war against the United States, his authorization of a vast "dirty tricks" campaign against U.S. citizens by British intelligence agents in violation of the Constitution, and his provocations and ultimatums against Japan which brought on the attack against Pearl Harbor -- all this is extensively documented and reasonably well known.[1]

Why the Mark Walsh (AKA Harley Guy) testimony sets the 9/11 Truthers' alarm bells a- ringing

This is an excerpt from comment #17 posted at 911blogger.com in the thread "Harley guy identity confirmed":

Body movement and statement analysis experts could most likely reveal significant reasons for what our instincts tell us is wrong about this interview.

At 59 seconds the reporter puts his hand on Walsh's shoulder as he identifies him and he immediately shakes his head. At 1:08 he says in a staccato tone with voice and hand gestures in authoritative mode that he saw the event "from beginning to end". How did he even know what the beginning and end actually was. Some have commented that there are no universal expressions which is not true. Universal grief and shock are well documented across cultures and even in the animal kingdom. This guy has no expression of either. He doesn't say he was terrified and wondered if more planes were comming perhaps hitting his building nothing but what appears to be a well rehearsed agenda to decribe the OCT.

CAN ISRAEL DEFEAT HEZBOLLAH IN THE COMING WAR? – Part 2: By DR. FRANKLIN LAMB

During the 33 day July 2006 War, Israeli forces refused orders to advance against Hezbollah fighters, happily opting for 14 day jail sentences for failure to obey orders.

Hezbollah, has smashed the myth of Israel’s invincibility, broken the barrier of fear, increased the popular demand for rORDE Ristance, exposed the fake peace process and rejected appeasement, acquiescence and surrender. Hezbollah forces taught the world that Arabs can and will liberate Palestine because they possess the qualities and acumen to do it. The kings and the presidents in the region, who for six decades chose their thrones over Jerusalem quake as does Israel.

Oregon Feds' car-bombing sting: Somali-born teen arrested

Feds: Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Ore.
By WILLIAM McCALL – 30 mins ago
PORTLAND, Ore. – Federal prosecutors say a Somali-born teenager plotted to carry out a car bomb attack at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in downtown Portland on Friday but the bomb turned out to be a dud supplied by undercover agents as part of a sting.
Mohamed Osman Mohamud was arrested at about 5:45 p.m. just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would blow up a van laden with explosives but instead brought federal agents and Portland police swooping in to take him into custody.
Federal court documents show the sting operation began in June after an undercover agent learned that Mohamud had been in contact with an "unindicted associate" in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier region.

Big victory against Monsanto's rBGH treatment for dairy cows.

Now, here's the BIG news. The court challenged the FDA's finding that there is "no measurable compositional difference" between milk from rbGH-treated cows and milk from untreated cows. According to those who have worked on this issue for nearly two decades now (maybe more), the FDA's claim that there was no compositional difference between milk from rbGH-treated and untreated cows was THE MAJOR roadblock to any good regulation. And the court finally struck it down, citing three reasons why the milk differs: 1. Increased levels of the hormone IGF-1, 2. A period of milk with lower nutritional quality during each lactation, and 3. Increased somatic cell counts (i.e. more pus in the milk).

Below, you will find the exact language of the court's ruling, as well as testimony submitted to the FDA's Veterinary Medicine Advisory Committee all the way back in 1993 by Michael Hansen, Senior Scientist at Consumers' Union. Amazing how it only took 17 years to get the truth legally recognized.

GORDON DUFF: AIPAC SPYING, WHY IS THE FBI LOOKING THE OTHER WAY?

HAS AIPAC MADE THE FBI THE “FBE,” FEDERAL BUREAU OF ESPIONAGE?

AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), is a sham. The group has, over the years, destroyed anyone who has tried to have it named what it really is, a dangerous foreign lobby and nest of spies. AIPAC is the most feared organization in Washington and most powerful, above any law. A former employee of AIPAC, Steve Rosen, who AIPAC claims was a spy, more appropriately a “caught” spy, now claims his former employer does nothing but spy.

Copyright infringement bill could bring the FBI to your intranet

Nov 24 13:26

HAS AIPAC MADE THE FBI THE “FBE,” FEDERAL BUREAU OF ESPIONAGE?

Are we reading this correctly? Not only is Rosen claiming that AIPAC, the organization every American politician, every president bows to on a daily basis, spies against the United States, also on a daily basis, but that the FBI seems to be, well, a part of it?

Funny thing here, OK, not really funny, but what we don’t see asked is WHAT INFORMATION is being stolen? America learned, long ago with the infamous Jonathan Pollard case, that secrets going to Israel end up in the hands of America’s enemies. America’s most vital Cold War defense information, nuclear technology, air defense systems, classified weapons and even NATO defense plans in case of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, all went to Russia as part of an arrangement between the Soviets and Israel. Pollard is doing life in prison for this.

Now we find the same thing is going on but the new FBI doesn’t arrest Israeli agents like it used to. Why is that?

PLAME/EDMONDS/AIPACGATE UPDATE: Rosen Threatens to Open Pandora's Box

About a year ago, I had reached the acceptance stage of my grief over the fact that justice would not be served and the perpetrators behind the outing of Valerie Plame, the corruption that Sibel Edmonds witnessed before the FBI fired her and the espionage at AIPAC would never pay for their crimes. The cover-up of these crimes by both the justice system and the mainstream media (MSM) put me in a depression that for six months made writing a blog seem like a waste of time. But by November of 2009, I had moved on to documenting other aspects of deep politics in the midst of a global scenario of permanently declining resources. The prospect of finding justice in a labyrinthian conspiracy I had spent the past five years documenting was not even worth entertaining anymore.

One year later, that possibility is still facing astronomical odds. But there is a faint glimmer of hope; the slightest shred of a chance. This is why:

By Paul Craig Roberts

With such expensive counter-terrorism activities, both in terms of the hard-pressed taxpayers’ money and civil liberties, one would think that bombs were going off all over America. But, of course, they aren’t. There has not been a successful terrorist act since 9/11, and thousands of independent experts doubt the government’s explanation of that event.

Freedom of What? 'Fake news, journo arrests part of US intimidation campaign'

1. US is moving towards a police state. Attitude of the police is that they can do what they want.
2. Freedom of speech is at a whim of the police.

RT journalists not permitted to hear what the police were saying in order to defend themselves. Judge sentenced them without a trial.

3. Corporate media won't cover these issues. Police run rampant.
4. Arrests were made to intimidate press.
5. Campaign of intimidation by the US govt.

NORTH KOREA ATTACK STORY CRATERS, SO CRANK UP A BOOGA BOOGA DISTRACTION!

K-9 units detected what might be a bomb or bomb making materials at Boston’s Logan Airport Tuesday. Dogs picked up a scent from a pallet and later picked out two duffle bags from Nigeria on a Delta cargo plane.

Abdul Muttalab was born in Nigeria and Fox News was reporting possible Al-Qaeda link.

UPDATE: As expected, this was another fake. Airport issued all clear and people reminded of how wonderful the TSA is at keeping them alive.

RAY MCGOVERN : US INTELLIGENCE THWARTED ATTACK ON IRAN

Why should George W. Bush have been “angry” to learn in late 2007 of the unanimous judgment of all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies that Iran had stopped working on a nuclear weapon four years earlier?

Seems to me he might have said “Hot Dog!” rather than curse under his breath.

Nowhere in his memoir, Decision Points, is Bush’s bizarre relationship to truth so manifest as when he describes his dismay at learning that the intelligence community had redeemed itself for its lies about Iraq by preparing an honest Estimate that stuck a rod in the wheels of the juggernaut rolling toward war with Iran.

Shut Up and Be Scanned

Earlier today, my colleague Matt Welch ran off a list of newspaper editorial boards who are lining up behind TSA. The headline to this post is the actual headline from the L. A. Times’ editorial. Given such cowardice about defending civil liberties in the face of hysterical hand-wringing about national security, I was going to post a snarky comment about how the L.A. Times would probably have told Japanese-Americans to “shut up and report to your internment camp” back in 1942, too.

Then I did some Googling, and discovered that the paper pretty much did exactly that. As did a number of other papers.

COMMITTED AIPAC ACTIVISTS EXPOSED

EX-AIPAC OFFICIAL GOT $670,000 FROM DONORS
By Jeff Stein / Spy Talk

The latest episode of the AIPAC spy scandal turned sordid last week, with the pro-Israeli lobby releasing its deposition of fired official Steven J. Rosen in which he confesses he engaged in extra-marital sex and watched pornography on his office computer.

But largely buried beneath such tawdry details was an admission arguably far more damaging to Rosen’s drive to prove the organization ruined his professional life: that major Jewish donors supported him with hundreds of thousands of dollars during the four years after his dismissal in May 2005.

AIPAC has been investigated several times by the FBI and is currently in a civil suit over the ongoing acquisition and movement of U.S. government classified information. The filing argues that such activities reveal AIPAC does not function as a bona fide “social welfare” organization.

It's Sick - Plain and Simple: In Defense of our Children

We've put up numerous videos now of very young children being stripped searched in public, touched against their will, and, in any other place and under any other circumstances, molested by TSA screeners.

Parents are counseled to tell their children that these "screenings" are a game. The US news media's comment on this? Deafening silence. Instead they ask us if we aren't being "too sensitive" and tell us there needs to be a "balance between security and privacy." Children are being taught that anyone in uniform has free access to their bodies...that they can't say "no"...

Nude airport scanners 'may be dangerous': scientists

US scientists have warned that the full-body, graphic-image X-ray scanners being used to screen passengers and airline crews at airports around the country may be unsafe.

"They say the risk is minimal, but statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays," Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University school of medicine, told AFP on Friday.

"No exposure to X-ray is considered beneficial. We know X-rays are hazardous, but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not that I have the least amount of sympathy for them, because they chose to be what they are, but those TSA workers are getting bathed in the leakage of the backscatter machines every hour of every day they work. Yes, the government insists these highly-profitable machines are safe, but the US Government said exactly the same thing about the shoe store fluoroscopes in the 1940s ... right up until the shoe store salesmen started dying of cancer in the 1960s.

Shop T’ill You Drop Will Not Bring The Economy Back

... Here’s the scenario as this Thanksgiving rolls around. Once again the economy is in deep doo-doo with unemployment high, millions on food stamps, and millions more facing foreclosures. The big banks seem to have “recovered;” most Americans haven’t.

Nevertheless, Christmas is for the shopping, a time to feign merriment through gift gifting, to spend what you don’t have. And the process will be “stimulated” and we will be guilted and mesmerized in our own homes by a non-stop electronic sellathon as TV advertising goes into hyperspeed.

Local TV channels will soon start hyping the “action” at the local malls announcing plans to “go live” without mentioning that they are doing it to attract more advertising, or as part of deals they already have with sponsors to add news time to ad time.

If the past is any guide, we will be told how packed the mall parking lots are...

...Unfortunately, a feast followed by days at the mall will not change any of this, and remember, if you will, the price our first Americans paid so that we could stuff ourselves on the road to national obesity.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Who Owns the TV Networks

Having just come across the article, "Who Owns the TV Networks" by Eustace Mullins, we felt it necessary to repost it in its entirety. The article is clearly dated, and many of these players have died, but rest assured they've simply been replaced by more of the same.

Although many people today are aware that television and the mainstream media present a very carefully propagandized picture of world events, we doubt many truly grasp the depth of this perversion of reality.

It has always been, and it will always be.

What we are witnessing in the world today is not anti-Semitism re-directed but a gathering, global manifestation of anti-Israelism.

Mr. Netanyahu, you and yours are responsible for the “demonization” of Israel -- By Alan Hart/ STAFF WRITTER

When Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America recently, he was relaxed, charming and at his deluded best. For Jewish audiences which don’t want to know the truth of history, there’s nobody who can deliver Zionism’s propaganda lines and lies more effectively than him. (Though he didn’t say so, he was obviously delighted that President Obama had taken a hammering in the mid-term elections).

I could take issue with Netanyahu on many of his mad assertions but on this occasion I will settle for challenging just one of them.

President Obama, your outrageous acceptance of Israel’s extortion of $3 Billion worth of F-35 fighter planes along with other security and political guarantees for the mere acceptance of a 90 day “freeze” of settlements in the West Bank, which excludes East Jerusalem, is a slap to the honor and dignity of this nation, the sole superpower. That a rogue illegitimate small war crime of a nation can bring this superpower to its knees is proof that our leaders, government, institutions, media, and academia can be bought, sold, and intimidated by a few hundred thousand rich and powerful American Jews.

Pollard sold information on nuclear targets in the Soviet Union to Israel. U.S. defense sources suggest that what caused the most bitter anger against Pollard in the Pentagon and throughout the American intelligence community was the fact that the information compromised human agents in the Soviet Union and elsewhere. U.S. intelligence sources have concluded that the Israeli government bartered this information to the Soviet Union."

The Pentagon’s murderous rampage and terror campaign 40 years ago against South Vietnamese villages, in areas that were considered sympathetic to the resistance forces, used much of the same kind of explanation. In fact, the New York Times in a throw back to Vietnam quotes the Arghandab District Governor, who is working with the occupation forces: “We had to destroy them to make them safe.”

That this tactic is part of a high-tech terror campaign against Afghan villages and the people who inhabit them is evident even by the descriptions and accounts of western media outlets that are supporting the war.

TSA Agents Absolutely Hate New Pat Downs, Find Them Disgusting And Morale Breaking

One of the common themes that people keep mentioning in talking about the new TSA pat down procedures is that those involved must "enjoy" the groping they're giving people. But, of course, most TSA agents are normal every day people who don't actually want to grope random people. Chris Tolles points us to a post from BoardingArea.com, who reached out to some TSA agents and found that many TSA agents hate the new rules and find it to be sapping morale to have to grope passengers. Some of it appears to be the verbal abuse they're getting from travelers, but some of it is just the fact that they have to keep touching people they'd rather not touch in that way:

"It is not comfortable to come to work knowing full well that my hands will be feeling another man’s private parts, their butt, their inner thigh. Even worse is having to try and feel inside the flab rolls of obese passengers and we seem to get a lot of obese passengers!"

A MODEST PROPOSAL FOR THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE TALKS

By Stephen M. Walt

Here’s the rub: given the power of the Israel lobby, it’s unrealistic to think that the Obama administration would be able to put any overt pressure on Israel. Congress will make sure that Israel gets its annual aid package, and die-hard defenders like Representative Eric Cantor (R-Va) will make it impossible for Obama to use the leverage that is potentially at his disposal. And as noted above, those same forces will make sure that the United States continues veto any unfavorable resolutions in the U.N. Security Council and deflects international efforts to raise question about Israel’s nuclear program.

So what’s a president to do?

The submarine launch of an ICBM off the California coast on November 8 is a milestone in American history. The immediate denials that it was an American test were a public relations disaster. America’s government does little but lie to its people, 9/11, Osama bin Laden, we could go on forever. In fact, nothing coming out of Washington or the press is remotely credible and it has finally been proven.

A submarine comes approaches America’s heavily guarded coast, through a network of defenses costing billions, and launches an ICBM capable of carrying up to 10 hydrogen bombs, launches the missile 2 minutes from Los Angeles, and we are utterly unaware? This is the same military we trust our children’s lives to?

WHAT DID WIKILEAKS REALLY TELL US ABOUT IRAN?

By Ali Gharib

A source provides details to the American government about the nefarious activities of a Middle Eastern country. That information ends up in scores of secret U.S. government documents. Subsequently, the information winds up on the front pages of major newspapers, and is heralded by war hawks in Washington as a casus belli.

Sound familiar? It should, but perhaps not in the way you’re thinking. Here’s a hint: It’s not 2003, but 2010. This is the story of what happened recently to Iran in the wake of the latest WikiLeaks document release, where US military field reports from Iraq made their way into major national newspapers and painted the Islamic Republic as a force out to murder U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

Unfortunately, everyone just wants to forget about the Holocaust, we guess, because the reaction to the below teaser trailer (which first debuted in early September) has now resulted in "outrage," “widespread revulsion” and several open condemnations by critics. We’re not sure why: It just has Uwe Boll in a Nazi uniform, hanging outside a gas chamber while various prisoners are suffocated, have their teeth pulled, and babies are fed into ovens. It’s not like he stuck a fat female superhero in there for kicks.

Neuromarketing - Ads that Whisper to the Brain

Natasha Singer
NY Times

WHAT happens in our brains when we watch a compelling TV commercial?

For one thing, certain brain waves that correlate with heightened attention become more active, according to researchers who have used EEGs, or electroencephalographs, to study the brain’s electrical frequencies. Brain waves that signal less-focused attention, meanwhile, tend to subside.

Flashback 9/11: Who Gets The Last Laugh Now?

Who Gets The Last Laugh Now?
The widely distributed falsehood that Father Mychal Judge was administering last rites to a fallen firefighter when he was fatally injured, was a public relations scam, a lie endlessly repeated by authorities, which never had a grain of truth to it. . . . If anything, evidence and testimony show that Father Judge was giving an interview to Jules Naudet at the time of Tower 2's collapse and his mysterious death.. . .Father Judge's status as Victim # 00001 was likewise a public relations stunt.

ALAN HART: THE OBAMA-CLINTON GAME PLAN FOR ISRAEL/PALESTINE

What, really, is the Obama-Clinton game plan for Israel/Palestine?

It doesn’t matter that Netanyahu may have said to Hillary Clinton in their seven or eight-hour conversation something like:

“There’s no point in you asking for a freeze in Jerusalem. I couldn’t deliver it even if I wanted to, and I don’t.”

What any Israeli prime minister can or cannot deliver because of the pathological mindset of most Israelis is not the point. It is that if peace is to have a last chance, the Zionist (not Jewish) state must be obliged to comply with international law (not to mention a host of UN Security Council resolutions).

In my analysis there are three possible readings of the Obama-Clinton game plan.

AIPAC Bares All to Quash Lawsuit: Sex, Spies, and Videotape

On Nov. 8, 2010, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) filed a massive 260-page motion [.pdf] in the District of Columbia Superior Court. It asks Judge Erik Christian to dismiss former AIPAC employee Steven J. Rosen’s $20 million defamation suit. In October the court dismissed all counts of the March 2009 lawsuit except for Rosen’s claim of harm over AIPAC statements to the press that he did not uphold its standards of conduct. Rosen and AIPAC have – until now – abstained from filing damaging information about the internal workings of AIPAC in court. AIPAC’s willingness to publicly air some extremely sordid and revealing content to get the remaining count thrown out before an alternative dispute resolution hearing begins in December is a sign that AIPAC is now fighting for its life, or – as one former AIPAC attorney put it – “reason for being.” If Rosen proves in court that AIPAC has long handled classified information while lobbying for Israel, the worn public pretense that AIPAC is anything but a stealth extension of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs – from which it emerged in 1951 – will end forever.

MYTHBUSTERS STILL BANNING 9-11!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, Geraldo has seen the light, and all of a sudden Huffington post has stopped deleting comments from 9-11 truthers; it's not like Adam and Jamie to be so "last century"! :)

GORDON DUFF: DEAR GERALDO RIVERA, 9/11 MURDER IS NOT A JOKE

BUILDINGWHAT.ORG IS ABOUT HONOR AND JUSTICE

This week, Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement, something exploding around the world. A Herald Sun poll in Australia the week before, 10,000 respondents, showed 78% support for 9/11 being an “inside job.” A reasonable estimate for Americans is likely to approach the same figure.

Fox News now “owns” 9/11 as much as they own Glen Beck. First, Judge Napolitano “outed” the phony investigation now Geraldo Rivera has taken a strong stand on the (www.buildingwhat.org) Building 7 demolition issue. If you put both shows together, they lead to the most frightening coverup in modern history and a clear evidentiary trail, one Fox News has exposed. Why, then, is the door opened and then closed again?

When Fascism Masquerades as Populism

Despite the absurd proclamations of the Supreme Court, money is not free speech, and corporations are not people. Free markets do not exist; they are always manipulated by insiders seeking unfair advantage. History attests that capitalism is kept afloat by raiding the public treasure. The elite adore capitalism because it provides them enormous wealth and political power without having to produce anything of value. It puts them in charge of the global plantation. It makes them masters of working class people because too many of us cannot distinguish between fascism and class-conscious populism.

WILL OBAMA JOIN LEAR IN THE STORM AND RAGE AGAINST ISRAELI INSOLENCE ?

Two lines in the fourth stanza of The Star Spangled Banner provide a clue to one American mindset that supports empire building.
By James M. Wall – - My Catbird Seat

“Then conquer we must, our cause it is just,
And this be our motto, “In God is our trust.”

Francis Scott Key included an important caveat in that couplet when he wrote, “when our cause it is just”. He did not write, “for our cause it is just”.

Wise leaders know the importance of the “justice” caveat when faced with the temptation to conquer others.

Unwise leaders create bogus causes to attack others. Three bogus causes that unwise leaders use to justify the urge to “conquer we must” are security of the homeland, fear, and xenophobia.

‘ROAD TO HOPE’ CONVOY TO GAZA MEMBERS KIDNAPPED

Greek Commandos board Strofades IV in Greek Waters

The Road to Hope humanitarian aid convoy left London on the 10th of October with £500,000 of medical aid for the besieged people of the Gaza Strip. After travelling 4,500 miles through the UK, France, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya the convoy stalled at the Egyptian border on October 26th due to an Egyptian refusal to allow land access to Gaza. As a result the convoy leaders had little choice but to secure a ship at significant extra expense and delay.

The Self-Sacrifice of Real Truthseekers and Whistleblowers

Self-sacrifice is a good testimony of truthfulness.
- Roy Tov, The Cross of Bethlehem

A prominent whistleblower who has paid a huge price for his efforts for world peace is the Israeli Mordechai Vanunu, who converted to Christianity in the process. In 1986 Vanunu revealed evidence of Israel's secret nuclear weapons arsenal, an illegal program which was developed largely through the efforts of Shimon Peres. Guess which one received the Nobel Peace Prize?

I, Rigoberta Menchú, liar

The story of Rigoberta Menchú, a Quiché Mayan from Guatemala whose autobiography catapulted her to international fame, won her the Nobel Peace Prize and made her an international emblem of the dispossessed indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere and their attempt to rebel against the oppression of European conquerors, has now been exposed as a political fabrication, a tissue of lies. It is one of the greatest hoaxes of the 20th century.
