Letter to British Liberal Democrats: Protecting War Criminals

“just about lowest thing anyone could do”

By Stuart Littlewood – My Catbird Seat

“Whatever happened to the Liberal Democrats’ pledge to ‘reject all prejudice and discrimination based upon race, colour, religion, etc…’ and to ‘fight poverty, oppression, hunger, ignorance, disease and aggression wherever they occur and to promote the free movement of ideas, people, goods and services’?”

ZIONISM: The Need For Israeli Jews To Feel Frightened –ALAN HART

BY KOUROSH ZIABARI

Kourosh Ziabari: In your recent article “Zionism and Peace are Incompatible” you reach a point where you state “if it is the case that American presidents are frightened of provoking Israel, the conclusion would have to be that the Zionist state is a monster beyond control and that all efforts for peace are doomed to failure.” Is it really the case that Israel possesses an uncontrollable, disproportionate power which enables it to violate the international law and enjoy immunity from being held accountable before the international community? What’s the source of this unwarrantable power and influence?

Alan Hart: Let’s start with Reality Number One.

BREAKING NEWS: 10 Aid Workers Held Hostage on Greek Owned Ship: Gaza Road to Hope Convoy

"We are being forcefully taken out of the harbour with the captain going crazy ordering the ship to leave!!!" Ken O'Keefe

The violent Greek owner who is also its captain of “Strofades IV” has just disembarked (as at 22.50 GMT) through a side door of the ship, onto a speed boat. His speed boat has made for another cargo vessel in Derna the harbour – “Odin Finder”. None of our guys now know who is in charge of Strofades IV, or where it is destined to go.

Dalton’s leaking oil

Meanwhile, Tory Leader Tim Hudak revealed an embarrassing document put together by Sussex Strategy group — a lobbying company — advising clients that renewable energy is anticipated “to be a wedge issue in the election.”

The document says the Tories will support a move away from renewables, so the industry needs to rally support for green energy.

“In this, it will be critical to ‘confuse’ the issue in the political/public/media away from just price to include key value attributes such as jobs, clean air, farm income, etc.”

So, we’re all so stupid, we can be “confused” by slick bafflegab to believe high hydro prices are good for us?

You wonder how much their clients paid for this crap.

TSA Resistance Taking Off: Are the Elitist Airlines Worried, Yet?

The airlines didn't like this type of ticket use, but didn't have the balls to check ID's against tickets, which would have pissed customers off. But once 9-11 hit, the elitist airlines (especially the bastards at United Airlines) got behind the mandatory government check of ID's to boost ticket sales fight terrorism. Naturally, a bureaucracy exploded around this ID check scam. The bureaucracy has now grown to the point of the naked body scan nonsense, which has alos resulted in blowback against the airlines, as the resistance is promoting the end to air travel. Web sites have been launched.

The REAL cost of the mid-terms: How politicians spent $4.2bn on ads - more than any other election in U.S. history

Politicians spent a staggering $4.2billion on campaign TV ads in the run-up to last week’s mid-term elections, it was claimed today.

The 1.48 million television spots were the most for any election in U.S. history – including the 2008 presidential campaign.

And some of the cities where candidates spent the most were in areas most blighted by the nation’s economic slump.

The Bought and Paid for Central Bankster-Owned LameStreamMedia and their "Propaganda Matrix"

My favorite analogy about the LameStreamMedia is that the former Soviet Union was a very poor country. They could only afford 2 state propaganda organs: Pravda and Izvestia. In Russian Pravda means "Truth" and Izvestia is loosely translated as "The News". The running joke in the Soviet Union was: There is no truth in Pravda and there is no news in Izvestia.

We are a very wealthy country... We have 6 major propaganda organs.

Globalism, Think Tanks, and "The New World Order"

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

If there is anyone out there who still reads Newsweek you might be particularly interested in picking up a copy of the October 4, 2010 edition.

While the cover story focuses on Sarah Palin and Republican women, one of the more interesting features stories is written by Joel Kotkin entitled, "The New World Order." In this article, Kotkin argues that “Tribal Ties – Race, Ethnicity, and Religion – Are Becoming More Important Than Borders.” The first page of the article, contains a color-coded map denoting new regions of the world not defined by contemporary governmental borders but those designated by region, race, and culture.

“HE’S NEITHER ALIVE NOR DEAD”: THE RESURRECTION OF ARIEL SHARON

when Sharon first went into the coma, what legacy he left to the Jewish state. It is a legacy of calculated carnage both of the people of Palestine and Judaism; it is imaged in his Wall of Fear that physically imprisons the Palestinians on one side and psychologically imprisons the Jews in fear and victimhood, a true legacy of isolationist tribalism as their efforts to control thought symbolizes. Magnify and multiply the abuses this man inflicted in 2005 by the atrocities of the 2006 Lebanon invasion.

In March of this year two Armenians were arrested smuggling high grade nuclear material through Georgia.

“He’s Neither Alive nor Dead”: the Resurrection of Ariel Sharon

By William A. Cook — My Catbird Seat

Raanan Gissin, Sharon’s former advisor, made the above comment last month as quoted in the Jerusalem Post (20-10-2010) upon the exhibit of a lifelike sculpture by Noam Braslavsky in Tel Aviv. The wax figure shows the comatose Sharon’s chest move up and down “to depict Sharon’s dependence on a breathing machine.” Some have found the work unsettling. “It’s very tragic,” Gissin noted. It’s “only sickening voyeurism,” Kadima MK Yoel Hasson declaimed. Braslavsky created “the sculpture because Sharon has been absent from the public eye for so long,” according to the Post’s article. Regardless, the exhibit has stirred up the Israelis as they are forced to revisit the former PM who is not yet dead.

Fox News, Fear Peddlers and Falsehoods Reshape Congress

By James M. Wall — Veterans Today

Rupert Murdoch and Shimone Peres

Politicians, pollsters, media and pundits would have us believe ”the economy and taxes” were the burning issues in our late, unlamented midterm elections.

Don’t believe it. A 30 second campaign ad (shown below) was used by a winning Republican candidate to peddle fear. It ran on behalf of one of 60 new House members who returned Republican control to the House of Representatives.

The ad was false. It arrived on the airwaves with the media backing of numerous Fox News pundits and newscasters.

Olbermann back Tuesday

After a weekend of speculation, Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, has announced Keith Olbermann’s fate:

After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night's program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Phil probably realized that after all the cash the owners of MSNBC handed out during the last campaign, punishing Keith for a few thousand handed to Democrats as a private citizen looked bad. And it did. I am happy Kieth is back on the air. I probably won't watch the show, but I'm glad he won on principle.

Of course, this could all have been a pathetic publicity stunt to boost MSNBC's and Keith's abysmal ratings,. too! :)

MSNBC's owners give millions in political contributions, but Olbermann suspended

After Politico's reporting that MSNBC host Keith Olbermann recently donated $7,200 to Democratic candidates, in violation of NBC's company rules that restrict employees from making political contributions, MSNBC president Phil Griffin suspended Olbermann indefinitely without pay. However, as reported by media watchdog, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR), it appears that MSNBC's parent company, General Electric (GE) along with potential new owner Comcast, both violated the company's "news policy and standards" by each donating millions of dollars in campaign contributions.

ISRAEL SHAMIR: BLANKFORT SPILLS THE BEANS

Congress has been bought by every major sector/special interest of American society that represents American capitalism: the arms industry, and so on, and, in this sense, Israel and the Jewish establishment that supports it have been a major player. They had been responsible for, at least since World War II, at least 60 or more percent of the money that goes to the Democratic Party, making the Democratic Party, literally, a subsidiary of the Zionist establishment.

After a few years of relative silence, our venerable old friend Jeff Blankfort gave a few interviews this being the longest. Though it is being presented as a sort of anti-Chomsky polemics, one may disregard this part and still find much of importance and relevance. In this interview Jeff speaks of years, dollars, Senators and Presidents who were subverted by the Jewish Lobby with its control of media, of voting machine, of money and trade unions.

This is damning and grim, but not grim enough.

GORDON DUFF: YEMEN: AL QAEDA PRESENCE NOT CREDIBLE

“AL QAEDA” CALL FOR ATTACKS ON AMERICA, NOT ISRAEL, UNDER SUSPICION

The people of Yemen simply don’t believe in Al Qaeda or Osama bin Laden, and for good reason. When Abdullah al-Faqih, professor of political science at Sana University told the New York Times, “We cannot differentiate between what is propaganda and what is real…Some of what looks like Al Qaeda is really terror as a business.”

With early news stories being continually contradicted, bombs that weren’t really bombs heading out on flights that never existed, carrying packages for companies that don’t service Yemen, all heading for Chicago synagogues, part of the wildest “persecution complex” of all time, the whole “Al Qaeda/Yemen” thing has been little more than a “borscht belt” comedy act.

The Mainstream Media Is Now Obsolete

f we need anything at this point in history, it is the citizen journalist. We need not one corporately sponsored message, but millions of independent voices all searching for the truth in their own unique way. Only then can we retrieve our American identity, and achieve a legitimate sense of justice in this country. Great changes begin with a revolution of ideas, an individual will, and a multitude of open eyes. The internet is a catalyst for such an event, the kind that occurs perhaps once in a millennium. We cannot allow it to be vilified by swindlers or dominated by tyrants under any circumstance, otherwise, we will lose our initiative, and along with it, our voice.

WIKILEAKS IS ZIONIST POISON

By Jonathan Azaziah

Undeniable facts about Zionism.

Disinformation is defined as ‘misinformation that is deliberately disseminated in order to influence or confuse rivals.’ It is used by governments to mislead and brainwash their citizen populations, instigate wars, and blackmail foreign regimes. It is the ultimate instrument of the media. The most effective disinformation is that which is comprised of falsehood as well as facts. Wikileaks, founded by Julian Assange, fits this description perfectly, right down to the letter.

Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's primetime firebrand host, has been suspended indefinitely for violating the ethics policies of his employer earlier this year when he donated to three Democrats seeking federal office, MSNBC announced Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I may not agree with Olberman all the time, but MSNBC is way out of line here. Keith made those donations as a private citizen and if corporations have a first amendment right to spend money on politics, so do ordinary citizens. Had Olberman subverted his show's objectivity as a result of money given TO him, MSNBC would have a legitimate case here. But as things stand now, MSNBC is off my channel line-up.

The Source of America's wars, Neocons Zionists

Whose interest are we spending trillions of dollars on wars and bankrupting America for? Certainly not America's interests.

It's not a blame Israel chorus (Alex) or some abstract group. It's facts. The pre-war hype that led to war with Iraq was not generic corporatism. The lies specifically came from a zionist cabal in the DOD. It's wasn't oil companies faking Niger documents it was Ledeen and Franklin. It wasn't weapons companies lying about witnessing a transfer of anthrax in a meeting that didn't even happen, it was Woolsey Barns and Schmit. It wasn't security companies lying about WMDs or spying on the US it was AIPAC It was the god damn Israeli moles Perle, Kristol, Fieth, Frum, Abrams, Libby, Wolfowitz, Kagan, Goldberg, and Grossman.

This is not some vague blame game. We have very specific facts as to who did what and it WAS the Israelis and this IS Israel's war.

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THE YEMEN TERROR SCARE

By Barry Grey (Source: Global Research)

In what has become a regular feature of American public life—especially on the eve of major elections—the airwaves were taken over Friday by breathless reports of a new terror threat. It is impossible to determine how much is fact and how much is fiction in the ever-expanding claims being made regarding two packages from Yemen allegedly containing high explosives and addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.

But the very fact that the decision was made, undoubtedly at a very high level, to give such massive media coverage to the alleged plot—before any concrete details were being reported and entirely on the basis of unsubstantiated claims made by, for the most part, anonymous officials—is sufficient reason to adopt a highly skeptical attitude.

By Daniel Tencer (source: The Raw Story )

Washington Post political correspondent David Broder has kind words for President Barack Obama in in his opinion column Sunday, arguing that it isn’t the president’s fault the economy is stuck in reverse.

But the four-decade-plus veteran of Washington politics offers a startling solution to the president’s political and economic woes: March off to war with Iran.

The president, who is “much smarter” and “more inspirational” than any of his opponents, could benefit from a confrontation with Iran because it would strike up a war machine that would pull the US out of economic stagnation, Broder argues.

Many observers cite five percent as an industry benchmark for proportion of paying customers against free users in a freemium service environment. That’s exactly what Spotify has.

But, from a pre-paywall readership of 20 million unique monthly users, to a base of 105,000 cumulative reader payments in the last four months, The Times has encouraged just 0.5 percent of its online audience at most to pay.

The Times and Sunday Times websites have seen a large decline in visitors since News International built the paywall around its online content.

The paywall went up at the start of July, and industry experts predicted a fall in readership of around the 90% level. Simply put, the thinking was that folks wouldn’t pay to read content when they could access other papers and news sources for free.

...

Nielsen estimates that between July and September, an average of 362,000 visitors per month have been reading the subscription content. Before the paywall went up, monthly visitors were approximately 3.1 million, so its construction has caused a drop of 88%.

GORDON DUFF: HISTORY NEVER HAPPENED, WHO IS DAVID IRVING?

Was it Osama bin Laden or the Mossad? Was it the Illuminati or the Council on Foreign Relations? Did they do it together? Where was Marc Anthony after 9/11 when we really needed him? A sad thing, perhaps beyond comprehension, is that we know more about Julius Caesar than we know about or own recent history. A few days ago someone sent me a link to a video by David Irving, the British author who professionally debunks everything. Irving, famous of late for taking on the holocaust, is the “go to guy” on World War II and Germany in particular. His research is, hands down, the best out there and he loves humiliating others for being duped by writing academic garbage based on secondary sources, too often proven, not just unreliable, but utter fiction.

Randy Quaid blows whistle on celebrity Targeted Individuals

In a Vancouver press conference, actor Randy Quaid described part of the typical plight of a Targeted Individual, naming eight close Hollywood associates he believes were targeted and killed. The targeting system is highly organized; involves people at all levels of society including in banks, the Department of Justice, and even family members who are are often co-opted to help destroy the target, as Quaid has learned first-hand.

The Television Commercial About The National Debt That Is Being Banned By Major Networks

A new television ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed "too controversial" by major networks including ABC, A&E and The History Channel and will not be shown on those channels. The commercial is a homage to a 1986 ad that was entitled "The Deficit Trials" that was also banned by the major networks. Apparently telling the truth about the national debt is a little too "hot" for the major networks to handle.

Real estate is a bad investment does not show up in Google News and other interesting housing trends – Strategic default searches went viral in 2010. Banks betting against American homeowners.

82 percent of American households have internet access. Of those with internet access, a large number are homeowners. The vast majority use Google to search for many things including foreclosure advice or investigating the real estate market. The online trends give of a sense of what is happening in the collective psyche of our country that really isn’t revealed through the conventional press. The housing market seems to be entering a second leg down and many are now predicting nationwide home prices to fall by 5 to 10 percent in the upcoming year. With that being said, very few articles have made their way to the popular press regarding real estate as a bad investment. Even today, there is still a sense that no matter the price, real estate will always be a good financial choice.

Government accusations: no evidence needed

"The reality, as today's version of the NYT makes clear, is that the U.S. has no idea who is responsible for sending these bombs. So in the dark are they that Homeland Security actually blamed two Yemeni schools that don't even seem to exist, with the only one remotely similar to it being one sponsored by the State Department. But no matter: within a very short time of the attempted attack's becoming public, U.S. government officials fanned out to anonymously pin the blame on Anwar Awlaki as the Mastermind, and newspapers then dutifully printed what they were told, even though nobody had any idea whether that was actually true.

Summary

The present report considers developments relevant to the obligations of Israel under international law, as well as the situation of people living in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Emphasis is given to the cumulative impact of Israeli policies in the West Bank and East Jerusalem arising from prolonged occupation, which exhibits features of colonialism and apartheid, as well as transforming a de jure condition of occupation into a circumstance of de facto annexation.

We have seen it all before. Last Christmas, the “Crotch Bomber” was another “PETN/Yemen” terror fiasco. Press stories blamed Al Qaeda and were ready to build this into a new 9/11 except that reliable witnesses, Detroit area attorneys, saw the terrorist, no passport, no visa, escorted onto the plane. Before that, newspapers said the bomber had a diplomatic passport, a visa and had “evaded” security.

"If I had the opportunity to address Mr Murdoch directly, I would say to him the following. If you really care about the Jews (I mean the Jews as people as opposed to their money), you would put your media empire at the service of the truth of history...

Oct. 30, 1938: ‘War of the Worlds’ Induces Panic

Long before Ashton Kutcher began punking celebrities, a talented young actor with a wicked sense of humor pulled off one of the biggest pranks in American history.

Oct. 30, 2008, marked the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles’ legendary radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds," which sparked a nationwide panic, causing many Americans to believe an actual Martian invasion was under way.

Directed and narrated by Welles, the hour-long broadcast aired Oct. 30, 1938, as a Halloween-themed episode of CBS’ radio series, Mercury Theatre on the Air.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those of you living on the island of Oahu, tonight is the final performance of our re-creation of the War Of The Worlds radio broadcast at the Richardson Theater, Fort Shafter. Admission is free, performance is at 7:30. Come and see if I am as ugly in person as I am on Justin TV! Good way to avoid spending a fortune on candies for those tiny costumed freeloaders! :)

Hanan al Samawi, woman busted in Yemen for role in cargo plane bomb plot, was 'set up': lawyer

According to NBC News, Hanan al Samawi's lawyer claims she was nabbed by authorities because her telephone number was on the packages loaded with explosives.

However, the attorney argues that the fifth-year computer science student was not involved and the phone number was intentionally left to make her a suspect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really insulting is that whoever set up this hoax really thought that it would never occur to us that an intelligent woman, sharp enough to be a medical student, would probably not put her own phone number on such a package. They really did think you were that dumb!

WERE “THE CHOSEN PEOPLE” PICKED FOR THEIR VIRTUES OR VICES? - Khalid Amayreh

Perhaps the Roman Catholic hierarchy has woken up to the fact that tens of thousands of Palestinian Arab Christians are forced to leave their ancestral homeland as a result of the brutality and oppression stemming from the ongoing Israeli occupation.

More than two thousand years ago, the frenzied multitude rejected Jesus because they thought he was going to rob them of their “chosen people” status and equate them with the rest of mankind. Today, 2000 years later, under the same chosen people rubric, Palestinian villagers, Christians and Muslims alike, are still being chased, assaulted, and hunted down “because they don’t belong”.

"We live now in hard times," Stewart said after all the shtick. "Not end times."

Part comedy show, part pep talk, the rally drew together tens of thousands stretched across an expanse of the National Mall, a festive congregation of the goofy and the politically disenchanted.

By Alan Hart — My Catbird Seat

It is true that in the eyes of many if not most peoples of the world (and probably many of their governments behind closed doors) Israel is increasingly being seen as a pariah state. But that’s a consequence of Israel’s policies and actions, war crimes and all.

In a recent speech at an ADL (Anti-Defamation League) dinner, Rupert Murdoch, arguably the most influential mainstream media chief on Planet Earth, made some extraordinary statements which must be challenged. But first it’s necessary for us all to be clear about what ADL’s role is.

Even if they are not yet actively pursuing alternative outlets of information, many people are aware, at least intuitively, when someone is trying to swindle them. You can present us with the assurance of delectable sirloin steaks on ornate silver platters, but if our faces are struck with the sickly stench of decay, we aren’t going to bite.

Awww, forget about the bank fraud that crashed the housing markets, we got BOOGA BOOGA for you today!

Test results for explosives were negative, one law enforcement official told the Associated Press, but officials remained concerned. The flight had been bound for Chicago but was at a British airport when the cartridge was spotted.

The Transportation Security Administration earlier said that cargo flights that landed safely at Newark and Philadelphia airports were being searched after "reports of potentially suspicious items onboard."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As of this moment, planes are being searched at four different airports. However, the original cause for the alert, a "suspicious" toner cartridge, has been found to be non-explosive. Yet the TV news is talking about nothing but this latest "terror" threat, apparently grateful they have an excuse not to talk about the massive mortgage-backed security fraud by the major banks that plunged this nation into depression! But after all the media sturm und drang, absolutely nothing has been found, No bombs, no drugs, no illegal immigrants... This is a non-story in which nothing has actually happened, hyped to attract attention away from the banking scandal that has ruined all of our lives. If ABCNNBBCBSFOX wants to know why their viewership is in decline relative to the alternative media, this is a classic example.

The Source of America's wars, Neocons Zionists

Whose interest are we spending trillions of dollars on wars and bankrupting America for? Certainly not America's interests.

It's not a blame Israel chorus (Alex) or some abstract group. It's facts. The pre-war hype that led to war with Iraq was not generic corporatism. The lies specifically came from a zionist cabal in the DOD. It's wasn't oil companies faking Niger documents it was Ledeen and Franklin. It wasn't weapons companies lying about witnessing a transfer of anthrax in a meeting that didn't even happen, it was Woolsey Barns and Schmit. It wasn't security companies lying about WMDs or spying on the US it was AIPAC It was the god damn Israeli moles Perle, Kristol, Fieth, Frum, Abrams, Libby, Wolfowitz, Kagan, Goldberg, and Grossman.

This is not some vague blame game. We have very specific facts as to who did what and it WAS the Israelis and this IS Israel's war.

Preparing for a Mumbai-style Active Shooter

Kevin Hayden, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Over the last few weeks, the mainstream media has capitalized on recent intelligence reports warning of a “Mumbai-style attack” in Europe.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the details of the Mumbai incident, several gunmen took over seemingly-random buildings, such as a large hotel, cafes, a movie theater and a children’s hospital. Over the course of 3 days, they were able to kill 173 people, injure another 308 civilians and fend off police approaches with grenades and overwhelming firepower. After the attacks had finally been stopped, investigators learned that many of the gunmen had been injecting themselves with cocaine and steroids to remain alert and awake, some staying up for over 50 hours at a time.

But vengeance is clearly a powerful motivating force. Nor should he expect much help from many of those Western politicians who used to pay homage to him back in the 1980s, when Iraq was an invaluable ally against the Ayatollah’s Iran

Youtube freezes all my vids at 300 then 800 and after a couple a days starts to count hits AFTER major linkers have moved on.

A commenter also noticed the 300 mark and posted that on 2 vids. The past 4 videos or so are all over 1900 and yet I know it was really more than that. They are lying about the numbers.

Saddam Hussein’s most powerful deputy, Tariq Aziz, is sentenced to death by an Iraqi court for his role in the killing of members of Shia Islamic religious parties after the first Gulf war. Aziz’s son, Ziad, reacted angrily to the sentence, claiming the court that convicted his father was a “theatrical performance” and that the sentence was politically motivated.

John Parker: Pentagon Reporters Give Up Watchdog Role for the Illusion of Being Part of Power

The career trend of too many Pentagon journalists typically arrives at the same vanishing point: Over time they are co-opted by a combination of awe -- interacting so closely with the most powerfully romanticized force of violence in the history of humanity -- and the admirable and seductive allure of the sharp, amazingly focused demeanor of highly trained military minds. Top military officers have their s*** together and it's personally humbling for reporters who've never served to witness that kind of impeccable competence. These unspoken factors, not to mention the inner pull of reporters' innate patriotism, have lured otherwise smart journalists to abandon – justifiably in their minds – their professional obligation to treat all sources equally and skeptically.

DEFAMATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND SELF DETERMINATION

The ADL wants to pretend that people who speak out against what Israel has done and continues to do are not motivated by the Nakba, the occupation, the siege of Gaza, apartheid, war crimes, etcetera, but by something else. It has to pretend that’s the case in order to dodge the real issues. That’s a deliberate strategy. The ADL doesn’t want Americans to judge Israel based on the facts; it wants to judge Israel based on marketing images.

ISRAEL IS THE MOST IMMEDIATE THREAT TO THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET: JEFFREY BLANKFORT

The allegation of “anti-Semitism” leveled against critics of Israel does not carry the weight it once did but it still is extremely effective, particularly, when the accused is employed by the mainstream media as we have seen recently in the case of Helen Thomas, Octavia Nasr and Rick Sanchez, and in the film industry which has long been a Zionist bastion and which was brought into existence by Jews in the last century, although none at the time were Zionists.

ALAN HART ON ‘THE UGLY TRUTH’

Some interesting comments by Alan Hart about JCS Michael Mullen’s one day visit to Israel, which needs further exploration.

WHAT’S NEXT? A new Congress, friendly to Israel and hostile to Obama, or something more “up close and personal” a la mode JFK?

He predicts they will lose power in both houses next month with Obama going in two years, if something doesn’t happen to him before then.

He touches on the weakness of the Arab States. Regardless, it is the most vicious campaign in history, he calls for some activity by the impotent Arab states. How does one do this?

They talk about the outrageous comments by the Rabbis in Israel, in recent weeks. The outrageous attitudes and their ability to say these things in public. Such confidence, such arrogance.

7 Mega-Cartels That Kill the Free Market and Our Sovereignty

What America has, and what we've had for a long time, is Cartelism. It is becoming increasingly evident that every industry has been infected by "Too-Big-to-Fail" consolidation that has resulted in a near-picture-perfect oligarchy -- a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small segment of society distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, or military control

Each major industry in America, and globally, is predominantly run by a handful of companies who are aided by the corporate-government revolving door. They work in unison to effectively control the direction of their respective industries, the economy as a whole, geopolitics, society, and humanity. Consequently, there is no longer a free market for basic human necessities, or even human thought.

Here are descriptions of 7 mega-cartels that killed the free market and effectively run America's oligarchy beginning at the top of the pyramid and cascading down:

The USS Liberty Veterans Association has tried for more than 40 years to expose what they believe was a deliberate Israeli attack. The bombing, which occurred during the six-day Arab-Israeli War, is officially described as a "case of mistaken identity."
"There's a constitutional directive that talks about what the House of Representatives is charged to do if a naval ship is attacked in peace time. The House is supposed to investigate the attack. They have on every single occasion, except the Liberty," said Gallo, who lives in Florida.

Wikileaks under doubt as “classified” documents substantiate bogus U.S. claims

Islam Times - The war between Wikileaks and the Pentagon supposedly continued on Friday as the famous “whistleblower” website released 400,000 “classified” documents. The Pentagon has reportedly assigned 120 personnel to pore over the documents to determine the potential damage they could cause to U.S. security.

However, like many news reports in this day and age, the real story may be buried under the hype surrounding the release of these supposedly “classified” documents and the “outrage” they are causing.

In praising Harris for his 20 years of service as AJC Executive Director, Elman says:

“No single professional has epitomized AJC’s values, vision, activism, humanitarianism and achievement more than David Harris. David has been hailed as one of the Jewish people’s foremost advocates and most distinguished and eloquent spokesmen.”

TWO OUT OF THREE AUSTRALIANS: “9/11 A GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY”

“67% of Australians cite 9/11 government conspiracy in poll. How can a government get so out of touch with reality, so “snookered” by American pressure over the 9/11 coverup that it would wake up one morning looking totally idiotic to its own people?”

When Trades Hall council president and staunch conservative, Kevin Bracken, on the ABC show “Talk Back” publicly aired his views on American government complicity in the 9/11 attacks, host Jon Faine attacked him violently on air, making every attempt to humiliate and silence Bracken. Bracken, known for taking tough stances during his tenure as head of Australia’s Maritime Union, didn’t back down.

But what many of these conservative pundits have forgotten is how they sang a slightly different tune when certain other journalists were let go for making comments that offended the right.

In the days since Iran’s president Ahmadinejad completed his visit to Lebanon, and given the continuing lively discussion across the local and international political spectrum evaluating the impact of his historic appearance, one thing appears fairly clear.

US State Department official Jeffrey Feltman who came to Beirut quick from Saudi Arabia on orders from the White House to “do something!” to offset the Iranians unprecedented reception, may have been a bit wide of the mark in his evaluation. Feltman repeated this past weekend the March 14 pro-US and Saudi prediction that: “ I don’t think Ahmadinejad’s” visit will have a lasting effect. It’s not something extraordinary. Its impact will remain for a couple days and that’s it.”

Nine stories the press is underreporting -- fraud, fraud and more fraud

From liars' loans to liars' liens, the financial and foreclosure crisis has been one big story of banks defrauding their customers -- a vast criminal enterprise. You wouldn't know it from a lot of the media coverage, though. Regulatory hero and criminologist William K. Black helps connect the dots.

If it wasn’t already blindingly obvious that pervasive fraud was at the heart of the financial crisis and the ensuing foreclosure catastrophe, you would think that the latest news -- that banks have routinely been lying their heads off in the rush to kick homeowners off the properties they fraudulently induced them to buy in the first place -- would pretty much clinch it.

And yet the mainstream media still by and large hasn’t connected the dots.

When Banks Are the Robbers

The big banks that caused the collapse of the global finance market, and received tens of billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailouts, have likely been engaging in wholesale fraud against homeowners and the courts. But in a promising development this week, attorneys general from all 50 states announced a bipartisan joint investigation into foreclosure fraud.

Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, GMAC and other big mortgage lenders recently suspended most foreclosure proceedings, following revelations that thousands of their foreclosures were being conducted like “foreclosure mills,” with tens of thousands of legal documents signed by low-level staffers with little or no knowledge of what they were signing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, you need to be careful of these stories that portray the gang-rape of Americans by the bankers as purely a foreclosure fraud issue. It isn't. The heart of the crime is that the mortgages backing the mortgage-backed securities were resold over and over, as many as 20 times, reaping billions in instant profits. But there is no way the sellers of those mortgage-backed securities could make good on the over-subscription, so the only way for the scheme to work is for the housing market to be crashed, and all those mortgages foreclosed as quickly as possible to erase the paper trail that could land the fraudsters in jail!

When I was reflecting on Miko’s main point, that Zionism and peace are incompatible, I found myself wondering why really it is that American presidents will not use the leverage they have to try to call the Zionist state to account for its crimes when doing so would clearly be in America’s own best interests.

If it is the case that American presidents are frightened of provoking Israel, the conclusion would have to be that the Zionist state is a monster beyond control and that all efforts for peace are doomed to failure.

Is the situation really as bad as that?

The agenda is clear.

By assets, we we mean your retirement funds, the value of your home and even your job.
