Georgia Parents Fight Military High School

The decision in Georgia comes as the military is taking an ever-increasing role in U.S. public education. The Associated Press reported June 28 that the Marine Corps is in discussion with at least six school districts — including locations in suburban Atlanta, Las Vegas and New Orleans. These schools will require students to wear a uniform, participate in Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) and take military classes.Obama’s Secretary of Education Arne Duncan championed military high schools during his seven-year tenure as CEO of the Chicago school district, helping to open five military-themed schools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is how the military is attempting to obtain more recruits without this country re-instituting a draft.

The problem is, as muscular as the Obama administration's foreign policy appears to be, even this approach cannot begin to obtain the objective of adding the massive number of troops necessary to fight those current and future wars this administration has in mind without resorting to a draft.

Obama’s Embrace of a Bush Tactic Riles Congress

President Obama has issued signing statements claiming the authority to bypass dozens of provisions of bills enacted into law since he took office, provoking mounting criticism by lawmakers from both parties.

Other laws Mr. Obama has said he need not obey as written include format requirements for budget requests, limits on whom he may appoint to a commission, and a restriction on putting troops under United Nations command.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Change", this isn't; it's simply more of the same, thrown at us by an infinitely more telegenic pitchman than was his predecessor.

Attacks on Homeless Bring Push on Hate Crime Laws

With economic troubles pushing more people onto the streets in the last few years, law enforcement officials and researchers are seeing a surge in unprovoked attacks against the homeless, and a number of states are considering legislation to treat such assaults as hate crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

States and municipalities are impotent to really help the homeless, so what do legislators do? Create laws to stiffen penalties against abuse of the homeless.

It makes the legislators feel somewhat better about themselves, as though they have "done something"; but it does absolutely nothing to fix the problem.

Resistance to Oppression and Slavery is Hatemongering

This guy, Frank Schaeffer, is mentally ill. But then again, the desire to control and rule over others, and micro-manage their lives through government central planning, is indeed a despicable illness. According to your wannabee controllers, you are a hatemonger and a racist for wanting to be free.

The Start Of The Second American Revolution?

The establishment is scared to death that Americans may see beyond the scope of their partisan divisions and come together to stand up in unison against the offshore bankers and corporations that run the White House, which is why the constant politicized drumbeat that the protesters are nothing more than astroturf Republicans is constantly echoed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo the Obama administration; please don't begin to characterize me as an "enemy" because I am a peaceful, thinking, caring person with some some acute differences of opinion with you on the direction this administration is taking this country.

The policies, both domestic, international, and financial, with their attendant taxation, are not putting this country on a path toward recovery; they are doing precisely the opposite.

The costs of these wars without end, for which this administration seems to have such an insatiable appetite, will be our undoing as a nation.

The tax money that has been spent, and the money borrowed from countries like China to pursue these wars, has caused this country to be carry a massive deficit from which it may never recover.

Yes, many of us are legitimately angry. We understand that we are experiencing the new version of "taxation without representation." Oh yes, we have that kabuki-esque spectacle of elections every so often, but this has become totally irrelevant to the direction of American policy.

Those people called congressional representatives no longer represent the will of their constituents; they have become "acquisitions" of the large corporations which fund their campaigns, overtly and covertly. So that's who gets represented and whose needs get met; not the needs of We the People.

We have stopped being a representative government, and have become, instead, a cronyocracy or more accurately a corporate-ocracy.

And that consistent, dull, thumping sound, echoing all across the country is being caused by the founding fathers, turning over in their graves at warp speed.

Driver gets £60 fine after moving a yard through red light to let police van on 999 call pass

A driver was fined for moving a yard through a red light to allow a police van responding to an emergency call to pass.

Phillip Lilley was waiting at a junction in Droylsden, Manchester when he saw the police van behind him with its blue lights on and sirens blaring.

The 36-year-old, watched two cars drive through the red light before edging his black Lexus forward so the van could pass.

But he was left stunned when, a few days later, he got a letter to say he had been caught on camera jumping the light. He was given a £60 fine and three penalty points.

A Swine Flu Windfall for GlaxoSmithKline?

By Kerry Capell
British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is set to reap billions as fear of the swine flu pandemic grows. The world's second-largest drug company has secured orders from 16 countries for 195 million doses of the vaccine it is developing against the H1N1 virus, which has killed more than 740 people worldwide.

The west's moral failure over Georgia

One year ago, Georgia's leaders ordered a military attack on unarmed civilians in South Ossetia. By any common understanding this action was a war crime and the ensuing conflict led to recognised independence for Abkhazia and South Ossetia, of which we are the elected leaders.

From the moment of the Georgian attack there has been a vast moral abdication in the west, among politicians, intellectuals and media – a failure to honestly confront what Georgia did. This moral failure has profound consequences for us and it is preventing western leadership from dealing realistically with the new boundaries of nationhood here.

Preliminary Injunction Filed To Stop Forced Flu Vaccinations

Austrian journalist, Jane Burgermeister, recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN), and several of the highest ranking government and corporate officials, including Barack Obama & the Rothchilds, concerning bioterrorism and attempts to commit mass murder. She has also prepared an injunction against forced vaccination which is being filed in America. These actions follow her charges filed in April against Baxter AG and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology of Austria for producing contaminated bird flu vaccine, alleging this was a deliberate act to cause and profit from a pandemic.

Marines Ban Twitter, MySpace, Facebook

The U.S. Marine Corps has banned Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other social media sites from its networks, effective immediately.

The Marines’ ban will last a year. It was drawn up in response to a late July warning from U.S. Strategic Command, which told the rest of the military it was considering a Defense Department-wide ban on the Web 2.0 sites, due to network security concerns. Scams, worms, and Trojans often spread unchecked throughout social media sites, passed along from one online friend to the next. “The mechanisms for social networking were never designed for security and filtering. They make it way too easy for people with bad intentions to push malicious code to unsuspecting users,” a Stratcom source told Danger Room.

A car driver in Australia has been fined for strapping down his beer rather than his young child.

Police said they were "shocked and appalled" when they pulled over the car south of Alice Springs in Australia's Northern Territory.

They said the 30-can pack of beer was strapped down between two adults in the back, with the five-year-old child unrestrained on the floor.

The Challenge of Black Nationalism

The Challenge of Black Nationalism
by Dr. Conrad W.Worrill, PhD.
July 30, 2009
Finally, the Black Nationalist tradition, today, is spearheaded through the African Centered Education Movement. The mass acceptance of Kwanzaa, African Liberation Day, Buy Black Campaigns, the Reparations Movement, and Controlling Our Own Communities Campaigns are all part of the ongoing Black Nationalist tradition.
Without vigorous Black Nationalist thinking and an aggressive Black Nationalist program of action, we will continue to chase false dreams created by our oppressors. We must put an end to this!

OBAMA SAYS DR. KING PAVED HIS WAY BUT KING WOULD REJECT OBAMA?S WARS

In his rousing speech to the NAACP, President Obama praised the civil rights leaders of the past whose sacrifices "began the journey that has led me (to the White House.) He neglected to mention, however, that the majority of those civil rights leaders, most notably Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., opposed the war in Viet Nam and, if they were alive today, likely would oppose his escalation of the war in Afghanistan.

Wham Bam Bananastan

Mr. Obama is allowing the warmongery to steer him into a course of action that will make America the latest superpower to impale itself on the far side of the Khyber Pass. In 1978 Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, manipulated events in a way that turned Afghanistan into the Soviet Union’s Vietnam. "The West should not repeat the mistakes that the Soviets made," he now says. "We are now running the risk of unintentionally duplicating what the Soviets were doing."

Sun Tzu noted, "No nation ever profited from a long war." A headline banner at the Department of Defense Web site reads, "The United States Is a Nation Engaged in What Will Be a Long War."

What I am really going to enjoy laughing about is how many of the vehicles that have been purchased under the “Cash for Clunkers” program are going to be driven like they were stolen (because they were) and will then be reposessed after they have been mostly destroyed and are only worth a fraction of their original value.

Boosting compounds called adjuvants complicate licensing of pandemic vaccines

TORONTO — As swine flu vaccine becomes available in coming months, boosting compounds known as adjuvants may stretch out limited supplies. But they also pose special challenges for vaccine regulatory agencies in places like Canada and the United States.

Neither country has licensed flu vaccines with adjuvants in them before, making the addition of the oil-and-water emulsions a potential hurdle to plans to fast-track pandemic vaccines. Fast-tracking is based on the premise the vaccine is the same as seasonal flu shots, just targeting a different virus.

Police detain Israelis, Americans linked to massive U.S. tax fraud

The police arrested a number of Israelis and Americans who allegedly defrauded U.S. tax authorities, Army Radio reported on Monday.

The suspects are alleged to have masterminded a scheme whereby they fraudulently obtained tax refunds totaling tens of millions of dollars which were then transferred to various bank accounts in Israel.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday afternoon in the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court, where the suspects will be arraigned.

They are being held on charges of money laundering, fraud, forgery and a number of tax offenses.

The affair follows a similar case last month in which 11 Israelis were arrested for allegedly swindling elderly Americans out of more than $25 million in a telemarketing sting.

Why a third of women want to give up work to look after their children

More than a third of working mothers want to quit their jobs to look after their children, research suggests.

A further six in ten would like to reduce their hours to spend more time with their young ones, the Government-backed study found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the 1990s, feminists exhorted women to leave their homes and go to work. The feminists didn't say women should have a choice in the matter. The social expectation of home-maker was simply replaced with a new social expectation of career path. The door was not merely opened into the executive quite; women were kicked through it. Indeed women who wanted to stay at home with their children were looked on as socially inferior.

Then the economy started to change and women in the workplace discovered they could not go back to staying at home with the kids. Two working parents became the social norm, with the government happy as hell to collect the additional taxes. Raising the children feel to the school/indoctrination centers and TV. Mom's home-cooked meals gave way to processed food. Profits and revenues went up while the social and health consequences continued to climb.

Behind the revenue stream was a darker issue. In hindsight, the push to make women independent came with a parallel program to demonize men, call them all potential rapists, and make them disposable. Looking back it was obvious even then that a prolonged war was being planned and men had to be freed up to be soldiers.

The 1990s was a repeat of the "Rosie the Riveter" campaign that lured WW2 women out of their homes and into the factories so that the men could be shipped off to be killed in war.

After WW2 ended the media pushed the image of "mother at home" as new fashion ideal. TV shows like "Leave it to Beaver" and "Father knows best" persuaded women to leave the factories in order that returning soldiers would find jobs. It was all social engineering and manipulation and while it may have worked well in the 1950s, women today with a sense of history are realizing they have been scammed and that what they thought was freedom of choice was really just another imposed societal expectation. The extra cash they thought they would earn has all but vanished into higher taxes and child-care costs, not to mention the expensive wardrobe, second car and other accouterments of the modern workplace. Meanwhile women are just now realize what men have known all along; it is painful to watch ones children grow up from afar.

Woken want out. But they are trapped just as trapped as they were told they were when they stayed at home with the kids.

Consequences

One has to wonder why people never learn from the lessons of history. Why is it that the rulers and enforcers of laws turn a blind eye to the atrociousness and retributions leveled upon them from days past, justified by the brutality of power madness currently sweeping the landscape? Do they think they are going to continue along this destructive path and not suffer the consequences when history repeatedly proves otherwise? Are they that stupid to believe they can treat people like herds of stock and not get gored?

Members of state workers union grant authorization for strike

California's largest state employees' union voted on Saturday to approve a strike authorization measure to protest furloughs of state workers and pressure state officials to ratify its labor contract.

A spokesman for Service Employees International Union Local 1000 said a strike was not imminent but that the vote authorized union officers to initiate certain job actions, including a strike if necessary.

The SEIU represents about 95,000 state employees, including clerical workers and teachers.

Given California's current economic situation, this union may very well find itself broken if they actually strike.

A chip off the old block.

Write them off as impromptu indiscretions, or as off-the-cuff remarks not to be taken as formal expressions of policy, but diplomatic time-bombs tossed casually in the past month by his Vice President and his Secretary of State are exposing President Barack Obama to something dangerously close to ridicule on the international stage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only "change" we have witnessed from this administration is that of having an infinitely more telegenic pitch-person feeding us precisely the same kind of tripe the previous administration attempted to ram down the throats of Americans; the only difference here appears to be that Obama looks infinitely better doing and saying precisely what Bush and his minions did and said.

This is going to lead to calamitous problems geopolitically in the weeks and months ahead.

Our government has become an unacceptable and unaccountable den of liars and thieves, and the people are getting damn tired of it. The evidence of extreme dissatisfaction, which may rise beyond the soapbox and ballot box if this trend is not reversed and soon, is clear. Nobody with a shred of intelligence wants to see the inevitable outcome of a government that refuses to follow the law itself, refuses to prosecute criminal wrongdoing by favored parties, and refuses to listen to the electorate on the issues of the day, instead mollycoddling those who have committed massive fraud upon the public and giving them hundreds of billions of dollars in hand-outs funded by the very people they ripped off in the first place!

'It burned straight away': Mother reveals how yobs threw bleach over her after she asked them to be quiet during Harry Potter film

A mother who was badly burned in a bleach attack after asking a group of youths to be quiet during the new Harry Potter film has today spoken for the first time about her ordeal.

The woman, who does not want to be named, was followed by yobs after the screening which she saw with her husband and two children.

The family were in a nearby restaurant when the bleach was thrown over her head by two youths who followed them inside.

The woman needed hospital treatment for burns and may have permanent damage to her eyes.

Government’s Chief Swine Flu Propagandist is Hired by ABC

This ought to tell you what the government-media coalition has planned for us down the road concerning its swine flu crisis and the militarization of health care. ABC certainly had to offer a sweet pot to entice Dr. Besser to jump from government mouthpiece to media mouthpiece. There’s a big job planned for this fella. Red flag anyone?

Consequences

One has to wonder why people never learn from the lessons of history. Why is it that the rulers and enforcers of laws turn a blind eye to the atrociousness and retributions leveled upon them from days past, justified by the brutality of power madness currently sweeping the landscape? Do they think they are going to continue along this destructive path and not suffer the consequences when history repeatedly proves otherwise? Are they that stupid to believe they can treat people like herds of stock and not get gored?

At a Border Crossing, Security Trumps Openness

Four years ago, when the federal General Services Administration unveiled its plans for a new border-crossing station here in northeastern New York State, the design was presented as part of the agency’s campaign to raise the dismal standards of government architecture. Even many in the famously fractious architectural community celebrated the complex — particularly its main building, emblazoned with glossy yellow, 21-foot-high letters spelling “United States” — as a rare project the government could point to with pride.

Yet three weeks ago, less than a month after the station opened, workers began prying the big yellow letters off the building’s facade on orders from Customs and Border Protection. The plan is to dismantle the rest of the sign this week.

Rasmussen: 75% of Americans Favor Auditing The Fed

So much for the ongoing secrecy of the nation’s independent central banking system. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 75% of Americans favor auditing the Federal Reserve and making the results available to the public.

Over half the members of the House now support a bill giving the Government Accounting Office, Congress’ investigative agency, the authorization to audit the books of the Federal Reserve Board.

Support for the bill has grown now that the Obama administration is proposing to give the Fed greater economic regulatory powers.

Illegal Organ Trafficking

This is a telephone interview from 7/24/09 that was done with Anthropologist Nancy Scheper-Hughes where she talks about how she blew the whistle on Brooklyn's organ bazaar.

There are a couple of interesting Jewish call-ins. If I got the gist of it correct, it seems there are issues with Jews wanting to buy organs because many don't believe in desecrating bodies after death so they won't use donated organs from those who die. One lady's attitude was "Why should I put this burden on my family if I can buy the kidney instead?"
It also appears there are some hospitals that don't mind doing surgery on these possibly unwilling "donors".

Via NPR out of NYC. It's about 38 mins long and well worth listening to.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nancy Scheper-Hughes is the woman who told the FBI a year ago that Rosenbaum was trafficking in black-market human organs.

Obama's Doctor: President's Vision For Health Care Bound To Fail

Than man Barack Obama consulted on medical matters for over two decades said on Tuesday that the president's vision for health care reform is bound for failure.

Dr. David Scheiner, a 70-year Chicago-based physician who treated Obama for more than 20 years, said he was disheartened by the health care legislation his former patient is championing, calling it piecemeal and ineffectual.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First, the Federal government is broke, busted, and will have one heck of a time not defaulting on its current financial obligations as it is without funding this program.

Secondly, what we don't need right now is an entirely new class of bureaucrats in Washington with the power to override patients' physicians when it comes to healthcare decisions.

In Virginia town, health fair tends to America's poor

Remote Area Medical (RAM), a traveling collective of volunteer medical practitioners, was set up in 1985 by British expatriate Stan Brock, who wanted to take medical care to those who were too poor, or live in areas too remote, to otherwise access it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Brock and his volunteers do is nothing short of miraculous.

At the same time, for a country which can spend billions to pursue wars without end, this is an absolute moral outrage, to say nothing of a colossal embarrassment for US government.

The legislation currently before congress is not the way to fix this.

But other countries, like Belgium, have managed to make sure that their people can access care when they need it, without breaking the national bank; why can't the US?!?

Martial Law and the War on Terrorism

The New York Times reported last week that the Bush administration considered sending in the U.S. military to arrest the so-called Lackawanna Six in 2002. Ironically, one of the worst prosecutorial overreaches by the Justice Department in the war on terror almost resulted in a temporary period of martial law.

The Lackawanna Six was a group of half-a-dozen Yemeni-Americans from a Buffalo suburb who traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan in the spring and summer of 2001 and attended an al-Qaeda training camp. Some members of the group asserted that they fled the camp after they heard appeals for violence against America.

Leonard Peltier: brutal cop killer, political prisoner, or symbol of a defeated people?

Over the years, these have been many and famous: among them, naturally, the former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, as well as Pope John Paul II, Nelson Mandela, the actor Robert Redford, the European Parliament, various national legislatures in Europe, a former UN commissioner for human rights and Amnesty International. Amnesty does not classify Peltier as a prisoner of conscience, but it too is urging that parole be granted, because of doubts about whether his trial was fair and whether political factors played a part in his conviction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The parole hearing is over. Results expected soon, but parole board has up to 21 days to make its decision known.

We hope for justice, but too many people in power are afraid of yet another embarrassment walking around free to talk to the world press. I am expecting that Peltier will get the same treatment as the torture victims at Guantanamo, life behind bars and away from the eyes of the public.

Other Unknown Facts : The Truth About Cops and Race

The Truth About Cops and Race
By Michael Filozof
Last week, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, a black man, was arrested by a white police officer for disorderly conduct. Gates accused the officer of racism. President Obama created a national media firestorm by commenting on the arrest, saying the cops "acted stupidly" and that the U.S. has a "long history" of "African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact."
It's that old liberal stereotype once again - bigoted white cops picking on poor, innocent blacks, just like Selma, Ala. in 1963. Really?
The truth is quite the opposite: minority suspects are likely to kill or injure white officers at a rate much higher than the minority component of the overall population.

WHAT CONSTITUTES RACIAL PROFILING?

Conyers calls for criminal investigation into Bush administration

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has called for both a criminal investigation and a blue-ribbon panel to look into "Bush administration abuses of power and misconduct."

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) told the National Press Club Friday that both avenues should be pursued because a criminal investigation would be done in private, while a blue-ribbon "9/11-type" panel would work publicly and would create a public record of the Bush administration's actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Conyers has a very track record of making very bellicose claims about vowing to get to the truth about various issues, but somehow never quite gets there.

His subpoenas have been consistently ignored, and nothing has happened so far with many other investigations he has chaired. He never throws down a serious Contempt of Congress citation against those who ignore him.

This little performance for the National Press Club appears to be more sound and fury, signifying nothing, which, unfortunately, the American people have been accustomed to getting from Conyers.

Harvest of Corruption: The Shame of the Scandal in New Jersey

he New York Post, in its characteristically pithy bad taste, has already dubbed the arrest of several prominent Brooklyn and New Jersey rabbis last week the case of the "kosher nostra." It is an ugly story, and not just how the Post tells it: alleged corruption among ultra-Orthodox leadership in the form of money laundering through charities and, even worse, strong-armed trafficking in human organs. Not two years after the breaking of the Agriprocessors scandal, we have another searing example of immorality dressed in the garb of Jewish piety, complete with all of the cringe-inducing stereotypical overtones. Yes, it’s a full-blown shande far di goyim—a scandal in front of the non-Jewish world.

Bernanke: "I Had To Hold My Nose" Over Bailouts

WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Sunday that he had to "hold my nose" over last year's taxpayer-financed bailouts of big financial companies but argued that the action had to be taken to avoid a major meltdown of the U.S. financial system and the broader economy.

Bernanke's comments came during a town-hall style meeting in Kansas City, Mo., where he was peppered with several questions about government decisions last year to rescue so-called "too big to fail companies" like insurance giant American International Group, whose collapse would have wreaked havoc on the global economy.

Bill Gates quits Facebook over 'too many friends'

Sat Jul 25, 10:02 am ET
NEW DELHI (AFP) – Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said he was forced to give up on the social networking phenomenon Facebook after too many people wanted to be his friend.

Gates, the billionaire computer geek-turned-philanthropist who was honoured Saturday by India for his charity work, told an audience in New Delhi he had tried out Facebook but ended up with "10,000 people wanting to be my friends".

Gates, who remains Microsoft chairman, said he had trouble figuring out whether he "knew this person, did I not know this person".

"It was just way too much trouble so I gave it up," Gates told the business forum.

Amazon Faces a Fight Over Its E-Books
By BRAD STONE

SAN FRANCISCO — Last week, Jeffrey P. Bezos, chief executive of Amazon, offered an apparently heartfelt and anguished mea culpa to customers whose digital editions of George Orwell’s “1984” were remotely deleted from their Kindle reading devices.

Though copies of the books were sold by a bookseller that did not have legal rights to the novel, Mr. Bezos wrote on a company forum that Amazon’s “ ‘solution’ to the problem was stupid, thoughtless and painfully out of line with our principles.”

An apology was not enough for many people.

During a training session, instructor Ben Kirby – whose manner was akin to television character David Brent – joked that the rapid spread of swine flu would help boost the profits of Teleperformance, the firm contracted by the Government to run the hotline.

Our investigators also found:

  • Among those selected to field enquiries was a 16-year-old school leaver who confessed she was so terrified she told a caller to dial 999.
  • Teleperformance will earn money from each call it handles under a hastily-struck deal with the NHS – prompting Mr Kirby to state: ‘There’s an endless budget...on this campaign.’
  • Mr Kirby joked about sending a victim to run around the streets of Bristol to spread flu.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    And why should the American people trust the government?!?

    The only thing for which they can trust the federal government, at this point, is that the federal government will lie to the American people to achieve any objective the government believes is in its own best interest, whether or not it is actually in the interests of the American people.

    (a university professor) and it's MUCH larger than
    a single potential transaction.

    2. Law enforcement in Brazil and South Africa acted
    immediately on the information and went after the criminals.

    3. This was not just organ dealing. It was organ
    stealing. Impoverished people were flown in and
    told if they didn't go through with the deal, they'd
    be shot. Some had no idea the details of what they'd
    agreed to.

    Organs were "bought" for $10,000 and re-sold for
    $150,000 and more.

    Tax on 'gold-plated' health care plans gains ground

    White House officials are embracing a plan to tax "gold-plated, Cadillac" insurance policies, giving momentum to an idea that is receiving bipartisan consideration on Capitol Hill.

    Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said Friday on Bloomberg TV that he is "taking an intense look at it."

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Oh, REALLY?!?!?

    Then let's start with taxing the health care benefits of all congressional representatives!!

    As reported in:

    http://public-healthcare-issues.suite101.com/article.cfm/health_care_f...

    "As soon as members of Congress are sworn in, they may participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP). The program offers an assortment of health plans from which to choose, including fee-for-service, point-of-service, and health maintenance organizations (HMOs). In addition, Congress members can also insure their spouses and their dependents.

    Not only does Congress get to choose from a wide range of plans, but there’s no waiting period. Unlike many Americans who must struggle against precondition clauses or are even denied coverage because of those preconditions, Senators and Representatives are covered no matter what - effective immediately.

    And here’s the best part. The government pays up to 75 percent of the premium. That government, of course, is funded by taxpayers, the same taxpayers who often cannot afford health care themselves."

    And please understand; even if a senator or congressional representative has served for only one term, these benefits stand FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

    One Percenters Enjoy Unprecedented Protection

    Here's a truism: The wealthiest 1 percent have never had it so good .
    According to government figures, 1 percenters' share of America's total income is the highest it's been since 1929, and their tax rates are the lowest they've faced in two decades.
    With 22,000 Americans dying each year because they lack health insurance, Congress is considering universal health-care legislation financed by a surcharge on income above $280,000 - that is, a levy almost exclusively on 1 percenters. This surtax would graze just 5 percent of small businesses and would recoup only part of the $700 billion the 1 percenters received from the Bush tax cuts. In fact, it is so miniscule, those making $1 million annually would pay just $9,000 more in taxes every year - or nine-tenths of 1 percent of their 12-month haul.

    Nonetheless, the 1 percenters have deployed an army to destroy the initiative.

    Rabbis among 40 arrested for fraud

    OFFICIALS are decrying political corruption in New Jersey after more than 40 people, among them rabbis and elected officials, were arrested in an investigation in which some were accused of laundering tens of millions of dollars and of black- market trafficking of kidneys and fake Gucci handbags.

    Fraudsters have you in their sights with five new scams

    Phishing (also known as 419 scams), where criminals attempt to elicit payments or personal details by e-mail, are now well known, so practitioners are turning to telephone-based variants. The principal method is “vishing” (voice phishing), where the perpetrators call victims posing as their bank and ask them to verify their identities by divulging personal details, often using an automated system. In the most convincing version, the target is not asked for details on the spot, but told to call the bank’s “fraud department” on a specified security number. “Smishing” (SMS phishing) is the latest adaptatation, where initial contact is made by text message.

    Continuity in Kyrgyzstan: The Same Old Imperial Game Goes On

    The New York Times tells us that the ongoing political crackdown in America's Terror War ally Kyrgyzstan is an example of the difficult "challenge" faced by the Obama administration as it seeks to "balance" its strategic needs with its "concerns" for human rights.

    But of course this is not a "challenge" at all. It's remarkably simple. When you are conducting wars of imperial domination in far-flung, hard-to-access lands, you must keep the local satraps sweet -- unless or until you can replace them with your own hand-picked stooges. Everything else is just window dressing for the rubes back home.

    Never Interrupt This President While He's Making A Mistake

    Fast forward to ObamaCare. Republican Senator Jim De Mint said, "If we're able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him."

    The Waterloo allegory symbolizes a turning point in Obama’s struggle to impose government-run health care on Americans. The infamous Battle of Waterloo effectively ended Napoleon Bonaparte’s military career.

    Napoleon believed in government "for" the people and rejected the concept of government "by" the people. His France was a police state with a vast network of secret police and spies. The police shut down plays containing any hint of disagreement or criticism of the government. The press was controlled by the state. It was impossible to express an opinion without Napoleon's approval. Sound vaguely familiar?

    From Iraq to Afghanistan, US Wars Not Going According to Plan

    The growing opinion in Europe is that Afghanistan is the United States’ "new Vietnam." The truth is that it is worse than Vietnam.

    In Vietnam, the United States had a clearly identified enemy, supported by a responsible Communist state in North Vietnam with its government in Hanoi. The U.S. had a theory about what it was doing: suppressing the insurrection in the South, and bombing North Vietnam until the government stopped the war. All of this was, in principle, possible.

    However the U.S. acted on a nonsensical theory about the world "going Communist" if the U.S. didn’t win, just as today the U.S. has an even more nonsensical theory about radical Islam conquering Muslim Asia and all of Europe, and then attacking the U.S., if Washington fails.

    The Serving Armies of The Standing Bankers.

    Why then do seemingly intelligent people resist the obvious truth? Let’s give an example of a personality type. Let’s take a man who went to war in Vietnam or Iraq under the illusion that he was fulfilling some patriotic duty to a democratic country. We’ve since learned that the Vietnam War and the Iraq War, like nearly all wars, were the brain child of bankers who initiated them for profit. Let’s consider that the so-called democratic country is not, in fact, a democratic country but a serf nation in fealty to a collection of bankers called The Federal Reserve. All of the representatives of this serf nation are employed by the bank and serve at the pleasure of the bank. John Steinbeck illustrated the nature of the bank in his wonderful novel, “The Grapes of Wrath”.

    Authorities arrest 44 in N.J. corruption case

    A two-year corruption and international money-laundering investigation stretching from the New Jersey shore to Brooklyn to Israel and Switzerland culminated in charges against 44 people yesterday, including three New Jersey mayors, two state assemblymen, and five rabbis, authorities said.

    Much of the cash came from Israel, where a man arrested as part of the inquiry yesterday said he obtained the money from a Swiss banker, prosecutors said. Another man in Brooklyn, Levy-Izhak Rosenbaum, was accused of enticing vulnerable people to give up a kidney for $10,000 and then selling the organ for $160,000.

    Poll: Majority in US Oppose Both Wars

    A new AP-GfK poll released today shows a majority of Americans opposed to the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq. The numbers also reveal growing concern that the president will be able to meet his goals, particularly in Iraq.

    The Iraq War was opposed 63-34, while the slightly more popular Afghan War was opposed 53-44. Both numbers split strongly along party lines, with roughly two thirds of Republican supporting each war. Only 10 percent of Democrats support the Iraq War while only 26 support the Afghan War, which has been the foreign policy centerpiece for the Obama Administration.

    'Hitler' gnome acquitted

    A visitor to the gallery objected and lodged a complaint that Hoerl had violated German laws prohibiting the reproduction of Nazi symbols or slogans. News of the "Nazi gnome" promptly went around the world.

    The prosecutors in Nuremberg said they would not put Hoerl on trial because he was obviously mocking the Nazis, not honouring them, and had made the gnomes as art. Gnomes used to be popular as garden decorations.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    One of the problems with these "visitors" is that they forget that they ARE just visitors and being allowed through the front door does not grant a right to decide for everyone else present what they should and should not see.

    I had the same problem with my first mother-in-law, who would come over to visit my first wife and I then proceed to lecture us about how the place would look so much better with this or that artsy item placed just so and how certain items from my family really ought to go, etc. I finally told her to her face that she was a guest in my home, a welcome guest, but still a guest and that decisions on decor were reserved to my wife and myself. From the look of outrage on the mother-in-law's face you would have thought I just relieved myself on her coat; she was THAT sure that it was her right to go into other peoples' homes and offer her recommendations on how things should be. I guess that was part of that unshakable sense of entitlement and superiority that she was raised with.

    Senate Votes for ‘Temporary’ Army Increase of 30,000

    The vote appears to be little more than a rubber stamp approving an announcement by Defense Secretary Robert Gates about his intention to increase the military by at least 22,000.

    However this bill makes no provision for funding the increase, but rather will leave the Obama Administration facing yet another “emergency funding” bill, like the one they fought through earlier this year. During the campaign President Obama condemned the Bush Administration for using emergency funding to pay for the wars, and promised after submitting the previous one that it would be their last.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    OK, to begin with, this government can't pay for an increase in its military.

    What happens if, all efforts put through on retention and recruitment fail, and they wind up with no where near the numbers Sec Def Gates has indicated he needs?

    There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Sotomayor has been a willing participant in a judicially run and tolerated bankruptcy fraud scheme. There is no hesitation on my part when I say that if given all the evidence, a grand jury would indict not only Sotomayor, but several other federal judges involved in this fraud. This is a major scandal that has gone unchecked, but must be stopped. Integrity and honesty in our judiciary must be of the highest priority.

    Want Treatment? Just Sign This No-Complaint Contract

    Until recently, patients whose doctors kept them waiting for hours without explanation, brushed off their questions or seemed downright incompetent had little recourse, other than complaining to family, friends or, in egregious cases, the state medical board. That was before the Internet gave everyone with an e-mail address the ability to reach a vastly wider audience by posting -- often anonymously -- critiques of doctors, in much the same way travelers rate hotels on such Web sites as TripAdvisor.

    As a defensive measure, some physicians are requiring patients to sign broad agreements that prohibit online postings or commentary in any media outlet "without prior written consent."

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The first time a medical staff member required I sign something like this, I'd be walking out of that office in an Olympic-paced sprint.

    And if there are problems, websites like this give the not so great doctors incentive to clean up their act.

    Having graduated from medical school and been a resident doctor does not give any MD the license to be a bad physician!

    US Strategy Of Total Energy Control Over The European Union And Eurasia

    By holding out several juicy financial carrots, to Turkey, to Armenia, even to Tehran if it were to abandon its nuclear ambitions, Washington hopes to throw a giant monkey wrench into the attempt of Moscow to retain a significant control over Eurasian energy supplies to the EU, a major lever to ensure more stable EU-Russian relations amid growing threats to Russia's security from Washington's misnamed missile defense shield being built in Poland and the Czech Republic.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    "Full Spectrum Dominance" cannot possibly continue to be supported by an all volunteer army only.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Whatever the current problems are, this legislation is not the solution.

    It is about raising more tax money (from an already taxed to death population) to forestall a US default on its debts before the end of the year.

    Obama Ally Throws Cold Water On Health Care

    ""I have a lot of concerns as a governor," Schweitzer said from the National Governors Association meeting in Biloxi, Mississippi. "Now, let me lay this out, there are only a few states that have a budget surplus, we are one them, we have about $400 million in cold hard cash in the bank. Very few states have got that. And we got there through good fiscal management. You can't put more things on your plate than you can afford to pay for. Now what is happening in Congress right now, things that disturb us as governors, is first they are looking at the rules and one of the proposals would be that the way we are going to pay for a portion of this health care is we will turn to the states and ask them to bond, to pay for some of the health care.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This is not about people who need health care actually getting healthcare.

    This is about more and more taxation on an already tax-strapped population, taxed for money borrowed by this government to continue their wars without end.

    At the end of the day in Congress, we don't have democrats or republicans; all we have is the War Party.

    And even though we go through our kabuki-style elections every so often in this country, what we have come to in recent years is a new version of taxation without representation, the very issue which caused the
    American colonies to rebel against the British government.

    Representatives no longer represent We the People; they represent those large interests which have acquired them (through overt and covert campaign contributions and perks), and the people be damned.

    Schweitzer is absolutely correct in stating that an intelligent government won't spend more than it has, something the federal government has blown by a wide margin, looking at the national deficit.

    Were we not borrowing money to fund these wars without end, then perhaps we could actually fund meaningful health care reform.

    But this legislation, which Obama is hoping desperately to stampede through congress without it even being read and digested by congress members, cannot logically be paid for under the current circumstances.

    This appears to be just another ploy to stave off the very real possibility that the US will default on its debts before the end of this year.

    Internal Rifts on Road to Torment

    Interviews Offer More Nuanced Look At Roles of CIA Contractors, Concerns Of Officials During Interrogations

    In April 2002, as the terrorism suspect known as Abu Zubaida lay in a Bangkok hospital bed, top U.S. counterterrorism officials gathered at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., for a series of meetings on an urgent problem: how to get him to talk.

    In August 2002, as the first anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks approached, officials at CIA headquarters became increasingly concerned that they were not learning enough from their detainee in Thailand. When the interrogators concluded that Abu Zubaida had no more to tell, Langley scolded them: "You've lost your spine." If Mitchell and his team eased up and then al-Qaeda attacked the United States again, agency managers warned, "it would be on the team's back," recalled the former U.S. official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss classified information.

    Walter Cronkite – The Most Dishonest Man in America

    (LRC) – Never being one to buy into that nonsense about “speaking ill of the dead,” I want to bring to your attention the following statement that the recently-deceased Walter Cronkite said in accepting the 1999 Norman Cousins Global Governance Award at the ceremony at the United Nations:

    “It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government [emphasis mine] patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace. To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order. But the American colonies did it once and brought forth one of the most nearly perfect unions the world has ever seen.”

    Hilary Benn, the Environment Secretary, ordered an investigation into two British companies linked to 90 shipping containers containing 1,400 tonnes of waste. They included syringes, condoms and nappies. The companies that received the waste — sent from Felixstowe to three Brazilian ports — said that they had been expecting recyclable plastic.

    No-bid contracts mean higher costs

    The Pentagon saves more than three times as much money when companies compete, the AP analysis showed. Yet more than $242 million in federal contracts — representing more than one-fourth of the military's stimulus contract spending so far — has been awarded under the recovery program through no-bid contracts for repairs and maintenance.

    Across the government, more than $543 million in federal contracts have been awarded so far without competition under Obama's $787 billion stimulus program.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This means even more tax dollars out of your wallets, folks.

    But then, of course, people in the Pentagon and Congress do not care about what those extra taxes mean to your quality of life (or the lack of it).

    W.H.O. Says It Plans to Stop Tracking Swine Flu Cases

    In a move that caught many public health experts by surprise, the World Health Organization quietly announced Thursday that it would stop tracking swine flu cases and deaths around the world.

    The announcement, made in a “briefing note” posted on the organization’s Web site late in the day, perplexed some experts, and even baffled a W.H.O. spokesman, Gregory Hartl, who said in an e-mail message, “I don’t have reliable info” about what his agency would track instead.

It is no coincidence that President Barack Obama's chief-of-staff, Rahm Emanuel, who shaped much of the bail-out plan and stimulus package which has helped to save America - and Goldman Sachs - from ruin, served his time inside the hallowed walls of the bank. So did President Bush's last Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson,.... who then persuaded Congress to cough up $700bn worth of rescue funds for America's banks - an estimated $5bn chunk of which (yes, you guessed it) went to Goldman Sachs.

    Hillary Clinton admits that the CFR runs the Government

    "...but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future."
