So WikiLeaks Is Evil For Releasing Documents . . . But DynCorp Gets A Pass For Pimping Young Boys To Afghan Cops?

Editor's Note: American taxpayer dollars hard at work -- something to remember around tax time.

Tech Dirt

One refrain we keep hearing against Wikileaks is that the cable releases aren't really "whistleblowing," because they're not really revealing anything. However, it seems like each day there's another big revelation of rather horrible things being done (and covered up) by the US government. The latest, pointed out by Boing Boing, involves a report from a cable that US-based private security contractor DynCorp, who was hired by the US to train Afghani police, was apparently supplying drugs and young boys for a sort of sex party . . .

Halliburton may pay $500 million to keep Cheney out of prison: report

Oilfield services company Halliburton is in negotiations with the Nigerian government to keep its former CEO, Dick Cheney, out of prison, according to a news report.

Sources inside Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission told GlobalPost this week that a settlement keeping the charges against Cheney out of court could cost as much as $500 million.

Homeland Security Recruiting Neighborhood Busybodies as Informants

Washington, DC—There were the infamous Gestapo, Stazi and Red Guard. They all sought and maintained civilian armies of snitches to help their rogue governments maintain absolute power. These government thugs wanted any information they could use against the victims they selectively targeted.

Today we have the Department of Homeland Security that is quickly stepping into this role in the United States. They are massively expanding their authority, reach and budget to smash dissent, and any resistance to government repression and violation of our Civil Rights.

If you have not noticed, our government has suspended the Fourth Amendment in the name of anti-terrorism. If you haven’t noticed, It’s our own government that has become the terrorist.

Julian Assange in the Honey Trap

So much for the "legal" case against Assange. It's a put up job, pure and simple, so brazen that one wonders how anyone – let alone a sitting judge outside of Zimbabwe, or Saudi Arabia – can entertain it with a straight face. And yet a British judge has indeed upheld the validity of the international arrest warrant, which went straight to the top of Interpol's agenda as soon as it was issued: in the new world order, "sex by surprise" is on a par with being a mass murderer. In spite of having pledges of funding from prominent supporters, the judge denied Assange bail: and so the governments of the world have him where they want him – behind bars.

No Revolution without Evolution: Ending the Federal Reserve

The housing industry is in a financial freefall, stock market-linked pensions of millions of Americans are insolvent or worthless, Social Security is bankrupt, banks are being closed by the FDIC at record yearly numbers, unemployment is at or above ‘The Great Depression’ levels, and basic commodities cost more than most families can afford to pay. The reason for all of this can be explained in two words: Federal Reserve.

Cold War vs. modern day US propaganda

What do Cold War and modern day propaganda have in common?

“The two are connected to one another. What we’ve seen is the continuation of Cold War propaganda under new conditions,” said Rutgers University professor Norman Markowitz.

The Pentagon has proven time and again its love of creating, chasing and trying to undermine what it calls enemies in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as several other nations it deems rogue.

“The United States is always involved in some kind of war of aggression. It rarely spends an entire year without invading some foreign country,” said editorial columnist Ted Rall.

The media is almost constantly right there to march in lockstep.

Betrayed again: S.510 fake food safety loaded into government funding resolution

Marti Oakley, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

We knew something else was afoot. The vote on S.510 too easy and too pat.

The bill, which was sent to the House desk prior to the vote in the Senate, contained section 107, the re-insertion of taxation in the fake food safety bill by the Senate.

The House waited til after the vote, then announced this staged faux paux and declared that the bill was “blue-slipped” due to violations of Constitutional provisions stating that all taxes must originate in the House.

Does anyone out there really believe for one minute this was a mistake on the part of Harry Reid?

WASHINGTON — Despite weak demand in the U.S. and Europe, oil prices climbed this week to near $90 a barrel and gasoline prices have passed $3 a gallon on the West Coast and parts of the Northeast.

Why? If demand is down and supplies are plentiful — and they are — why would prices be going up?

Because Wall Street speculators are driving up oil and gasoline prices again — just in time to dampen holiday cheer . . .

Wikileaks whistle-blower: Where's the money, Julian?

Manning's defense fund has raised over $90,000 - but not a penny has been received from Wikileaks, as was promised, the legal team has confirmed in a statement.

"Immediately following Bradley’s arrest in late June 2010, the whistle-blower website Wikileaks publicly solicited donations specifically for Bradley’s legal defense expenses," notes the BMSN.

"In July 2010, Wikileaks pledged to contribute a 'substantial amount' towards Bradley’s legal defense costs. Since Bradley’s selection of David Coombs as his civilian defense attorney in August 2010, the Bradley Manning Support Network has unsuccessfully attempted to facilitate the pledged Wikileaks contribution.

Israel appears only in 77 out of 20,000 Wikileaks docs

On its website WikiLeaks says it has so far released "almost 20,000" of the "251,287 leaked United States embassy cables."

The release, however, raised questions as it doe not contain any incriminating or embarrassing document against Israel.

"No classified Israeli material was exposed by WikiLeaks," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in November, suggesting that Tel Aviv viewed the release as a positive.

An Israeli-born investigative journalist has found evidence that WikiLeaks "struck a deal with Israel," based on which the websites founder Julian Assange would withhold cables incriminating Israel in exchange for money.

But note, we only know "a little" and we only know about "some" of it.

Here's a shocker...

Bloomberg news reported that the Federal Reserve carried out an estimated $9 TRILLION in "off balance sheet" transactions in just eight months - and we still don't have a clue what those were about, what they bought or loaned and who benefitted.

In a recent interview with the German daily Die Tageszeitung, former WikiLeaks spokesperson Daniel Domscheit-Berg said he and other WikiLeaks dissidents are planning to launch their own whistleblowers’ platform to fulfil WikiLeaks’s original aim of “limitless file sharing.” [3]

Mr Domscheit-Berg, who is about to publish a book about his days ‘Inside WikiLeaks’, accuses Assange of acting as a “king” against the will of others in the organisation by “making deals” with media organisations that are meant to create an explosive effect, which others in WikiLeaks either know little or nothing about.

“Assange met with Israeli officials in Geneva earlier this year and struck the secret deal. The Israel government, it seems, had somehow found out or expected that the documents to be leaked contained a large number of documents about the Israeli attacks on Lebanon and Gaza in 2006 and 2008-9 respectively. These documents, which are said to have originated mainly from the Israeli embassies in Tel Aviv and Beirut, where removed and possibly destroyed by Assange, who is the only person who knows the password that can open these documents, the sources added.”

Assange Prosecution: A Brazen Effort to Kill Alternative Media

In 1917 the United States enacted the Espionage Act, a law that has made it a crime to “willfully communicate” secret government information that could expose national secrets held by officialdom. Since the law was passed, however, the government has avoided prosecuting journalists for publishing classified information.

While everyone is focusing on WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, another important information dump is getting largely ignored since September 1, 2010 when James Gourley of the International Center For 9/11 Studies obtained nearly 5 terrabytes of videos and reports concerning the attacks on the WTC and Pentagon buildings.

Although some of the tapes have had some audio/video manipulation, it is clear why NIST did not want to release any of this material for the past 9 years. The 9/11 coverup demands that no evidence of explosions or bombs be included in the official story, and some of these videos have even been kept hidden simply for including the WORDS “bomb” or “explosion” in their contents.

But where was information about involvement of Afghanistan’s Tajik-Uzbek Northern Alliance, the key US ally there, in running the drug trade? Or the influential Afghan Communist Party?

More indications WikiLeaks is the 9-11 of the blogs; a fake event staged to justify protecting dictatorship from exposure.

'Never waste a good crisis" used to be the catchphrase of the Obama team in the runup to the presidential election. In that spirit, let us see what we can learn from official reactions to the WikiLeaks revelations.

The most obvious lesson is that it represents the first really sustained confrontation between the established order and the culture of the internet. There have been skirmishes before, but this is the real thing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The propaganda to "polish this turd" is on warp drive. WikiLeaks has only been around for a little over three years and is the manufactured and heavily promoted darling of the corporate media. But WikiLeaks is a newcomer. Other websites have been around for much longer. WRH traces its history back to 1994 when we blew the whistle on the murder of White House Deputy Council Vincent Foster. The corporate media has continued to pretend we do not exist even though our readership exceeds that of most newspapers and our radio show reaches around the globe on the internet and the entire North American continent on shortwave. Compared to us, WikiLeaks is the skirmish in a war we have been fighting all along.

Now, I am not saying this to whine about the lack of media coverage for WRH, because I don't really give a damn whether ABCNNBBCBS talks about me or not. But one needs to look at the intense coverage given WikiLeaks while hundreds of other websites and alternative news providers who have been around much longer and broken some really important stories, continue to be ignored.

WikiLeaks is a manufactured front, built over three years at heavy expense in time, money, and political capital. Every cheap public relations trick is being used to convince American web-surfers that Julian Assange is the go-to guy for reality, with Assange already dissing the 9-11 truth movement and reporting Mideast events spun to favor Israel. In desperation, they are even using a tawdry sex scandal to lure people into the WikiMania!

BREAKING: WikiLeaks Being Used to Justify "Patriot Act" Legislation For Internet

Senator Mitch McConnell called Assange a "high-tech terrorist" on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday and said, "if it‘s found that Assange hasn’t violated the law, then the law should be changed."

Over the weekend, an insightful article by Zen Gardner exposed how WikiLeaks resembles an establishment creation. The article correctly pointed out that the WikiLeaks storyline was conforming nicely to the elite's problem-reaction-solution method, with the solution of more tyranny for our safety.

WikiLeaks is being used to bring in the agenda on so many levels, but most importantly by setting the precedent of shutting down websites for politically "dangerous" content. Gardner writes:

BIG SIS INVADES WAL-MART: 'IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING'

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department’s national “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country—launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.

“Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe,” said Secretary Napolitano. “I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”

Unvarnished Truths About the US and Israel

Surprising, however, is Time’s candor on Israel. It minces no words. US support for the creation of Israel had alienated the Middle East: it had been a costly error, motivated not by national interest but petty considerations of presidential politics. Truman had supported the creation of Israel in order to court American Jewish votes. This was the plain truth: a US President had placed his electoral chances ahead of a vital national interest. Apparently, in those days, Time could write the plain truth without worrying about the tide of flak from the American Jewish community.

Besides the cumbersome regulations accompanied with traceability provisions which are merely a cover for surveillance to prevent small or local farmers from providing food outside of the corporate system, the bill gives unprecedented power over food production to FDA, HHS, and DHS.

The Wall Street Pentagon Papers: Biggest Scam In World History Exposed - Are The Federal Reserve’s Crimes Too Big To Comprehend?

What if the greatest scam ever perpetrated was blatantly exposed, and the US media didn't cover it? Does that mean the scam could keep going?

That's what we are about to find out.

I understand the importance of the new WikiLeaks documents. However, we must not let them distract us from the new information the Federal Reserve was forced to release. Even if WikiLeaks reveals documents from inside a large American bank, as huge as that could be, it will most likely pale in comparison to what we just found out from the one-time peek we got into the inner-workings of the Federal Reserve. This is the Wall Street equivalent of the Pentagon Papers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wall Street tried to pull the greatest financial scam in history, selling mortgage-backed securities with mortgages that were already in default, or mortgages re-pledged as collateral to multi0ple investment packages, or in some cases no actual collateral at all. The insiders made billions on the deals.

But as the fraud became known, the banks, pension plans, corporate investment accounts who had bought these investments, all demanded a refund on the fraudulent mortgage-backed securities and the attached credit swaps. The demands were enforced with threat of public exposure or a run on the US financial system as was demonstrated in February 2009, when a massive electronic withdrawal of funds nearly crashed the US banking system; a financial shot across the bow!

So Wall Street started buying back the bad paper, in order to stay out of jail, but money flowed out of the crooked financial instituions faster than Ben Bernanke could print it up. Printing up new dollars simply cheapened all dollars leaving no way to pull ahead of the mounting losses. Because of the massive losses on the mortgage-backed securities buyback, banks hovered at insolvency.

The banks needed new assets to put on the balance sheets, and the US Government provided one by confiscating wealth from the people and giving it to the banks. But whereas Franklin Roosevelt's 1933 gold grab had been open and above-board, the US Government decided that this new wealth-grab had to be more covert in order to prevent a public backlash from a population already angry at high taxes, low services, endless wars, and persistent funding of Israel's war machine.

So the government started offering tax incentives to corporations that encouraged offshoring. The theory was simple. If Americans list the means to pay their mortgages, the banks could grab the homes, some 60 million so far, and put those on the balance sheet to stay solvent! And the best part was that the Americans whose homes were confiscated were fooled into thinking it was their own fault!

I received a lot of email from people who refuse to believe the US Government would ever do such an evil thing, but if allowing banks to take private homes to recapitalize, then you tell me why the Obama administration has continued that Bush-era policy!

Are The Federal Reserve’s Crimes Too Big To Comprehend?

Just when I thought the banksters couldn’t possibly shock me anymore… they did.
We were finally granted the honor and privilege of finding out the specifics, a limited one-time Federal Reserve view, of a secret taxpayer funded “backdoor bailout” by a small group of unelected bankers. This data release reveals “emergency lending programs” that doled out $12.3 TRILLION in taxpayer money - $3.3 trillion in liquidity, $9 trillion in “other financial arrangements.”

Wait, what? Did you say $12.3 TRILLION tax dollars were thrown around in secrecy by unelected bankers… and Congress didn’t know any of the details?

The McCollum Memo: The Smoking Gun of Pearl Harbor

On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox (whose endorsement is included in the following scans). Captains Anderson and Knox were two of President Roosevelt's most trusted military advisors.

The memo, scanned below, detailed an 8 step plan to provoke Japan into attacking the United States. President Roosevelt, over the course of 1941, implemented all 8 of the recommendations contained in the McCollum memo. Following the eighth provocation, Japan attacked. The public was told that it was a complete surprise, an "intelligence failure", and America entered World War Two.

Adding SEX SEX SEX to lure people into the WikiLeaks trap!

According to one source, Jessica wanted to know if it was possible to force Assange to undergo an HIV test. Sarah, the seasoned feminist warrior, said she was there merely to support Jessica. But she also gave police an account of what had happened between herself and Assange a week before.

The female interviewing officer, presumably because of allegations of a sabotaged condom in one case and a refusal to wear one in the ¬second, concluded that both women were victims: that ¬Jessica had been raped, and Sarah subject to sexual molestation

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Assange "rape" issue is just a big SOAP OPERA, based on the HIV/AIDS Hoax and the derivative SAFE SEX campaign, mixed with radical feminism political correctness garbage, in order to keep Assange and WikiLeaks in the public eye and make him seem a sympathetic anti-hero you should all trust to tell you the truth about Iran and Israel.

Julian Assange rape arrest is a publicity stunt!

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested in the U.K. on behalf of Swedish authorities, London Metropolitan Police said in an e-mailed statement today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The powers that be, or to be more accurate the powers that wish they still were, are desperate to turn Julian Assange into a counter-culture hero, in order to bolster the public image of credibility to sell the pro-Israel and anti-Iran propaganda. This rape charge is a joke when you look at it, certainly nothing that bail should be denied over, especially when one considers that the original prosecutor though the charges lacked merit, and amounted to revenge by two women who wanted a good star-fuck, then got pissed off when Julian moved on. Both women sent SMS and twitter messages bragging of their trysts with Julian, hardly the behavior one sees in true rape victims. One of the women, Anna Ardin, threw a par5ty for Julian after the alleged rape incident, again hardly behavior one would expect in a real rape. Ardin, as it turns out, is a militant feminist who published a blog urging women to get "revenge" on a man, and to make him "suffer."

Clearly a lot of time and money went into creating the Julian Assange myth. That so many people are questioning the veracity of the latest document dumps must have sent a shock wave of panic through the propagandists who still believe the world operates by the rules that applied during the Cold War. Their well crafted ventriloquist dummy is starting to come apart, and this rape arrest is just a desperate attempt to buy some public sympathy for their boy.

Gordon Duff: Why Wikileaks Doesn't Add Up

One out of seven news outlets have noticed, thus far, that Wikileaks seems to have a “soft heart” when it comes to Israel and India. Zbigniew Brzezinski caught on, finally, declaring that Wikileaks is an “intelligence operation” using “pointed” information carefully “seeded” into a combination of minor scandals and chickenfeed.

There is absolutely no question for the press that Wikileaks is totally phony, we all know it, it is blatantly slanted, clearly not only anti-American but aimed Islam. At the same time, it is trying to be more and more clever about seeming less the Mossad “game theory” construct that we all know it is.

She has revealed herself to be more than she was in a profession that never allows you to actually do your job, because you have to cater to the Synagogue of Satan, which owns the media, because it owns the banks, that prints the money out of thin air, which allowed them to buy anything they wanted to buy, while denying that right to anyone else besides a member of the Zio-Ogre Tribe.

Helen Thomas slams WSU for ending award named for her

Journalist Helen Thomas fired back at Wayne State University for ending an annual diversity award in her name, telling the Free Press Sunday night that "the leaders of Wayne State University have made a mockery of the First Amendment and disgraced their understanding of its inherent freedom of speech and the press."

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?

The Wiki-leaks documents need to be considered in a broader context. By all means, alternative news sites should continue to expose American, British and any another government inequity that the documents reveal.

Does anyone care that these documents clearly support US and Israeli war-mongering? Does anyone else find that to be astonishing? Where is the critical thought?

Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga has categorically expressed that the 9/11 attacks were a joint operation of FBI and Mossad. General Hamid Gul, the former head of Pakistan’s Intelligence Service believes that Israel was behind the attacks, too. What’s your estimation of these theories, their veracity and reliability?

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."

Tension grows between Calif. Muslims, FBI after informant infiltrates mosque

Monteilh's mission as an informant backfired. Muslims were so alarmed by his talk of violent jihad that they obtained a restraining order against him.

He had helped build a terrorism-related case against a mosque member, but that also collapsed. The Justice Department recently took the extraordinary step of dropping charges against the worshiper, who Monteilh had caught on tape agreeing to blow up buildings, law enforcement officials said. Prosecutors had portrayed the man as a dire threat.

Compounding the damage, Monteilh has gone public, revealing secret FBI methods and charging that his "handlers" trained him to entrap Muslims as he infiltrated their mosques, homes and businesses. He is now suing the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This case needs a lot of attention because it reveals that the FBI is creating all these terror arrests you see in the media, to "prove" how dangerous those gosh-darned Mooslims really are! In this case, the FBI planted an informant inside a mosque to talk about Jihad, talk some idiot into agreeing to bomb a building, in order for the FBI to prove how butch they are by arresting the patsy in full view of the press. Voila! FBI heroes, Muslims bad! For this we pay taxes? Those were not Muslims who attacked Americans in international waters last May, and ignoring them while creating the illusion of Muslim terrorists only reminds us all that Helen Thomas is telling the truth when she says Zionists are running the US Government for the benefit of Israel.

See The FBI Allowed the 1993
WTC Bombing to Happen

UPDATE: Apparently in response to the growing number of these FBI fuckups, the Congress is considering a law making it a crime to publish the names of government informants, so that every time they screw up the FBI can just move the informant to another neighborhood or another campus and nobody will in theory know they are FBI informants. But as a safe approach, assume any smelly arrogant asshole with dynamite trying to talk you into an act of violence is a likely informant.

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.

Video - Cured: A Cannabis Story

Cannabis cured my skin cancer. This is my story.

It has been proven that concentrated cannabis oil cures cancer.

Why hasn't The U.S. National Cancer Institute or The American Cancer Society tested Cannabis Oil?. Is it lack of personnel (2,100 USNCI staff members) or limited financial support (USNCI 2010 budget of $5.1 Billion dollars!)

Cannabis Concentrate or extract is the same as Rick Simpson's "Hemp Oil". Hemp seed oil is NOT what Rick Simpson is making and using.

The cyber war has been launched, impacting public opinion globally, and focusing on three objectives mainly:

He was not on the plane, AirTran Airways says. "After conducting additional research into this situation, we have verified, according to flight manifests [legally binding documents] that the individual that allegedly created a first-hand account of events on-board AirTran Airways Flight 297, a Theodore Petruna, was never actually on-board the flight," AirTran said in a statement, which the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was the first to obtain.

International crews help Israel fight forest fire
By Rami Amichai and Dedi Hayoun Rami Amichai And Dedi Hayoun – Fri Dec 3, 4:02 pm ET
"As the fire progressed, fanned by strong easterly winds, there was barely concealed anger that so many lives were lost in a country that spends billions of dollars a year on weaponry but significantly less on its emergency services.
"What would we have done if faced with dozens and hundreds of missiles that might have ignited fires in several areas, including urban areas with multi-story buildings?" asked the top-selling daily, Yedioth Ahronoth.
Some Israeli newspapers speculated that the fire might have been started deliberately, and one suggested it might prove to be the "worst terror attack" in Israel's history."

On the Historical Necessity of Wikileaks

Woodrow Wilson had it wrong about America. The United States is not a morally superior nation and its elites have always been just as corruptible and obsessed with secrecy as any in Europe. His plea for open diplomacy never had a chance on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. If Wilson's idealism was seriously wounded at Versailles, it was killed outright by the Republican majority in the Senate which refused to ratify the peace treaty he brought home. Why? Largely because of the desire to frustrate and ruin a Democratic president. Sound familiar?

S. 510 and Codex Alimentarius Link: Tracking, Tracing, and Monitoring Independent Food Production

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

Being honest, I must confess some slight personal agitation at the thought of writing another article on yet another “food safety” bill making its way through congress with the words “tyranny” and “Codex” written all over it.

It seems that every legislative session, we are faced with the prospect of the same food bill cloaked in a different name.

Invariably, this bill seeks to corral all food production into the hands of a few major corporations and essentially destroy the ability of the population to feed themselves. Here in late 2010, we have the new version of food imperialism known as S.510, the Food Safety Modernization Act.?? . .

Wiki-Leaks and Plausible Lies - Where Have All The Critical Thinkers Gone?

The Wiki-leaks documents need to be considered in a broader context. By all means, alternative news sites should continue to expose American, British and any another government inequity that the documents reveal. But where is the criticism of the rest of the documents that confirm the standard Israeli/American narrative - that Iran poses 'an existentialist threat' to Israel and to 'moderate' Arab states?

Does anyone care that these documents clearly support US and Israeli war-mongering? Does anyone else find that to be astonishing? Where is the critical thought?

“The Vatican did not endorse an 11-page final statement in favor of easing restrictions on and allowing more widespread use of genetically modified crops, especially in poorer nations,” a Vatican official said in a statement published by Catholic News Service.

In fact, “the Vatican has never taken a formal position supporting or opposing genetically modified foods,” reported CNS.

Wikileaks warrant 'issued to UK'

Swedish authorities have made a fresh request to UK police to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange following sex crime allegations.

The prosecutors drew up a second European Arrest Warrant, after the first was rejected on legal grounds.

"We sent it. They asked for complementary information and now they have it," Swedish Prosecution Authority spokeswoman Karin Rosander said.

Mr Assange, who has released thousands of secret files, denies the claims.

The UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca), which processes European Arrest Warrants, declined to confirm whether the request had been received.

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.

Wikileaks shocker: Did Abbas know in advance about the devastating blitz on his countrymen in Gaza?

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 eye-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.

That same mentality would no doubt wish to drive an ever bigger wedge between Fatah and political rival Hamas.

WikiLeaks and The Sound of Silence

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's given an interpretive spin by those newspapers granted priority access.

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

Take for example the release of diplomatic cables on the August 2008 war between Georgia and Russia and the interpretative gloss given by The New York Times.

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.

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.

WikiLeaks: More Israeli game theory warfare?

“The United States is the real victim of WikiLeaks. It’s an action aimed at discrediting them.” --Franco Frattini, Foreign Minister of Italy

The impact of the WikiLeaks release of diplomatic cables fits the behavior profile of those well versed in game theory warfare.

When Israeli mathematician Robert J. Aumann received the 2005 Nobel Prize in economic science for his work on game theory, he conceded, “the entire school of thought that we have developed here in Israel” has turned “Israel into the leading authority in this field.”

The candor of this Israeli-American offered a rare insight into an enclave long known for waging war from the shadows. Israel’s most notable success to date was “fixing” the intelligence that induced the U.S. to invade Iraq in pursuit of a geopolitical agenda long sought by Tel Aviv.

Drug company used ghost writers to author work bylined by academics, documents show

According to newly released documents from GlaxoSmithKline, the pharmaceutical company often paid ghostwriters to pen medical studies, editorials and even a textbook that listed physicians as the authors.

The documents—some of which date back to late 1990s—were recently unsealed in litigation over a GlaxoSmithKline product. We saw them after they were attached to a letter released this week by a nonprofit watchdog group urging the National Institutes of Health to crack down on ghostwriting in medical academia. The documents and the letter by Project on Government Oversight together outline several examples of how a major drug company contributed to the funding, writing and approval of material published in medical journals and elsewhere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable, but this clearly demonstrates how the drug companies have acted to skirt regulations in such a way that everyone, from physician to patient, is convinced that prescription drugs are both safe and efficacious.
