Occupied Washington DC

As a visitor to our nation's capital, I cannot tell you how disconcerting it is to step off the metro and find yourself face to face with a F-35 fighter jet. Where you would normally expect to find ads for cell phones or museum exhibitions, Washington's subway, the second busiest in the country, instead displays full color backlit billboards for some of the most deadly – and expensive – weapons systems ever produced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing that will guarantee the safety of American citizens is for the American government to stop mucking about in other peoples' countries, as though those countries' resources only belong to the US, and not to the people sitting on top of them.

Of course, that would be logical.

America's Imperial Design. Prompt Global Strike: World Military Superiority Without Nuclear Weapons

On April 8 American and Russian presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev signed a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) agreement in the Czech capital of Prague to reduce their respective nation's nuclear arsenals and delivery systems (subject to ratification by the U.S. Senate and the Russian Duma.

More ominously, though, Washington is forging ahead with a replacement for the nuclear sword and shield - for blackmail and for deterrence - with a non-nuclear model that could upset the previous "balance of terror" arrangement that has been a criminal nightmare for six decades, but for sixty years without a massive missile war.

America Blowback in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan, like Bolivia at one time, is hardly the only such small, democracy-deficient, country with some manner of "strategic relationship" that fits in to larger US geopolitical concerns – in fact it may be the rule. But the unexpected swiftness with which an unpopular regime was swept aside, and the potentially seismic impact it has on the US war effort in Afghanistan – is a good reminder of the inevitable breaking point produced by a US foreign policy semantically dedicated to human rights – that looks the other way while "strategic allies" loot their countries' assets, murder their journalists, and send troops out to gun people down in the streets.

'All bets are off' if US under WMD attack: Clinton

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday the United States could not rule out using nuclear weapons if it came under biological attack, saying in that case "all bets are off."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if, perhaps, this country is being "set up" for an horrific "false flag" event for Clinton to have made that remark today.

The fear card is about the only thing this administration has left to keep people from thinking about the clear and present dangers this administration has created in their lives.

Kyrgyz govt threatens force against ousted leader

Kyrgyzstan's interim government warned Sunday it could use force against ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, raising tensions in the Central Asian state vital to US operations in Afghanistan.

"The interim government is prepared to use force in the event that Bakiyev attempts to destabilise the situation," said Omurbek Tekebayev, a deputy head of the interim government said on national radio.

"Bakiyev must resign, and announce his decision to the people," added Tekebayev, a leader of the anti-Bakiyev forces that have seized power in the former Soviet republic, which is home to a US air base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This situation could morph into a civil war at the speed of light.

The question is, with Russia having recognized the opposition government, what is the US, which has a base headquartered in Manas here, going to do?!?

Polish Tragedy: Exactly HOW Many People Were On The Plane?

Video at source. CNN was at first intenionally vague (see video at link) - hinting at one point that their original estimate (132) would be revised; a few hourse later - surprise! - only 97 dead.

The plane was on the way o a commemoration of the massacre of tens of thousands by the former USSR.

TRANSLATED: Prezydent zamordowany? (President assassinated?)

Blogger, cites pilot on crash anomalies, doubts official story. Translated by Google.

.... Circumstances, however, point to a major accident or intentional blocking of the control system.... Many foreign Web sites... reported about this that "the Polish president was killed."... the new President of the NBP, which is probably the Polish zloty will no longer be defended ... It is also by chance that killed the entire leadership of the Polish Army, and appoint a new commander, Marshal ... Of course, in no way suggesting that we had to do with the coup d'état.

Tourists flock to world's newest volcano

They were ill-equipped for the journey across Iceland's frozen Highlands, but for a chance to see the greatest show on earth, it seemed worth the risk.

Last week, though, a party of sightseeers who headed to see the country's newest volcano paid the ultimate price of admission when their car got stuck near its molten ring.

They perished not from extreme heat but from extreme cold - after running out of petrol for their SUV, two of the group froze to death in -30C temperatures, while the third was taken to hospital suffering from exposure.

Polish Crash: Eerie; Putin Himself Investigating: Eerier

Isn't it ironic then that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, former head of the KGB and the Soviet secret police and now over the new KGB and Russian intelligence services would be conducting the investigation of a plane crash that killed the President and most of the military leaders of Poland, a former state of the Soviet Union?

Poland’s Leaders Move to Weaken Currency, Then Die in Plane Crash

The Polish government and the National Bank of Poland, in a “rare moment of unity,” agree to weaken Poland’s currency, the zloty, in an act that would benefit Poland’s exporters at the expense of Poland’s trading partners—that is, the European Union, among others. Then, the next day, Poland’s president and the president of its national bank die in a plane crash.

Polish Delegation Wiped Out - Assassination or Accident?

For observers who do not normally follow events in eastern Europe and Russia, it is important to note that there has been a level of veiled hostility between Russia’s former President and Poland. Poland was to be one of the eastern European hosts of the US missile defense shield, a military action condemned by Russia and Mr. Putin.

Solidarity Demo FREE TIBET in Zürich Switzerland (photos)

An estimated 10,000 people gathered today April 10, 2010 at Münsterplatz Zürich for a demonstration of solidarity with the people of Tibet. It was a beautiful sunny spring day featuring an interesting program of singing prayers, music, a speech by the Dali Lama, and lots of people including thousands of Tibetan refugees, waving colorful Tibetan flags.

Clinton speaks with interim Kyrgyz leadership

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday telephoned interim Kyrgyz leader Roza Otunbayeva and urged the leadership to "renew Kyrgyzstan's path to democracy," the State Department said.

US Moves From Nuclear Arms to Conventional Missiles With Global Reach

While President Barack Obama speaks overseas of his vision of a world without nuclear weapons, his military commanders at home are quietly accelerating a programme to develop and deploy a new class of conventional intercontinental ballistic missiles which will have the capacity to strike targets anywhere in the world within an hour.

While the effort to develop the new missile capability, called Prompt Global Strike, began in the late 1990s and through the Bush years, President Obama has expanded its budget with hopes that it can be added to US military's array of options by the middle of this decade. First prototype tests will be carried out by the Air Force next month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This move doesn't make the world, or the US, more safe; it makes the world more dangerous, particularly if these weapons cannot be distinguished from nuclear weapons by other countries.

How Many Americans Does It Take to Slaughter a Third World Child?

How much effort, by how many Americans, has gone into producing each child’s violent death during undeclared wars in Third World nations? Some innocent child made poor and disadvantaged for its country’s history of brutal colonial occupation and plunder by industrial powers that continue to exploit through neocolonialist financial oppression, killed by foreign invaders of American nationality.

American teenager attempts to climb Everest

Jordan Romero from California has already climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mount McKinley in Alaska, among others.

Currently a 16-year-old Nepali boy, Temba Tsheri Sherpa, holds the record of being the world's youngest climber of Mount Everest.

"It is just a goal," Jordan said. "If I don't succeed I am OK. I will try again."

If he succeeds, he plans to pick a small piece of rock from the top of the world as a memento and wear it in a necklace.

Polish president and wife among '88 confirmed dead' as plane crashes in Russia

Polish president Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria have been killed after their plane crashed on approach to Smolensk airport in western Russia.

There were conflicting reports today of the number of people on board the flight. Russian news agencies reported at least 88 people died in the crash near Smolensk airport in western Russia, citing the Russian Emergencies Ministry. They reported 132 people were aboard the Tupolev Tu-154.

But Polish officials said 88 people were on board when the plane crashed. Sky News reported 96 dead.

US reaps bitter harvest from 'Tulip' revolution

Evidently, there has been a massive breakdown in US diplomacy in Central Asia. Things were going rather well lately until this setback. For the first time it seemed Washington had succeeded in the Great Game by getting a grip on the Kyrgyz regime, though the achievement involved a cold-blooded jettisoning of all norms of democracy, human rights and rule of law that the US commonly champions. By all accounts, Washington just bought up the Bakiyev family lock stock and barrel, overlooking its controversial record of misuse of office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So that's where the 80 million dollars in US "aid" went!

Kyrgyzstan leader demands president go into exile as civil war threat rises

Roza Otunbayeva, the new self-proclaimed leader of Kyrgyzstan, has warned the overthrown president Kurmanbek Bakiyev is plotting a comeback from the south of the Central Asian country amid fears of a civil war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get dicey very quickly.

Russia has just stated that it supports the new government, and is about to negotiate financial aid to help get the country back on its feet.

If Kurmanbek Bakiyev decides to attempt some paramilitary countermeasures, we could see Russia literally coming to the defense of the new opposition government militarily.

The White House and State Department had better think very carefully about how they would respond to this scenario, in light of the large US base headquartered here in Manas.

And it was with former president Kurmanbek Bakiyev with whom the US signed the deal for that base.

Apr 09 18:20

US troop flights at Kyrgyz base suspended: military

The US military has suspended troop flights out of its base in Kyrgyzstan and will instead transport forces to and from Afghanistan via Kuwait, military officials said Friday.

The suspension came after the Americans spotted armored vehicles on the civilian side of the airport, a defense official told AFP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that there are some true adults in the room in command of this base, and that there are no provocations against the new government.

The situation is still very tense here, and one would hope that no one at the base would do anything which could be construed as provocative.

One Day Soon, We’ll All Be “Homegrown Terrorists”

As our country spirals towards certain monetary derailment, scathing discontentment with the establishment is sure to arise. When trusted leadership betrays, when criminality becomes a political guideline, when the corrupt loot the world, burning the people alive in their ever expanding grip, invariably, defiance is born. The Globalists know this well. They have seen it time and again, and have learned from past mistakes. Instead of immediately attempting to crush this opposition of individualists, the Elites now preempt violence with “false cultural identification”; the public demonization of those who would inevitably rebel BEFORE they even do so, much like a murderer who admonishes his future victims for wanting to defend themselves.

As democracy unravels at home, the west thuggishly exports it elsewhere

Democracy in both America and Britain is coming under scrutiny these days. Quite apart from the antics of MPs and congressmen, it is said to be sliding towards oligarchy, with increasing overtones of autocracy. Money and its power over technology are making elections unfair. The military-industrial complex is as powerful as ever, having adopted "the menace of global terrorism" as its casus belli. Lobbying and corruption are polluting the government process. In a nutshell, democracy is not in good shape.

Apr 09 09:53

Kyrgyzstan’s next leader will have to win Moscow's approval

An ability to please Russia may determine whether the new leader of Kyrgyzstan’s interim government becomes the next president.

Ms. Otunbayeva has said that the US can continue using the base at Manas but a senior Russian official, speaking on condition of anonymity, made clear yesterday that the Kremlin expected her to close it. He said that Mr Bakiyev had broken a promise to expel the Americans, adding: “In Kyrgyzstan there should be only one base — Russian.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If US officials thought, for one second, that there was a possibility of this base being permanent, they were severely deluded.

Of course, the fact that we had supported a tyrant in the form of Bakiyev to get the deal for the base in the first place didn't do anything to support the US's alleged reputation for standing on the side of human rights and human dignity here, and the people of this country understand that completely.

Apr 09 09:45

Kyrgyzstan: a Russian revolution?

Obama has no excuse for being unaware of what was going on. According to Human Rights Watch, several of Kyrgyzstan's best-known opposition leaders were jailed on politically inspired charges in the past year. Amid intensifying street demonstrations in March, opposition websites and independent radio stations were blocked or jammed, and the publication of three newspapers was suspended. Two prominent journalists were killed last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has had an historic, and almost pathological, pattern of looking the other way when a dictator (like Batista, the Shah, etc.,) was giving the US precisely what they wanted.

Then when the oppressed countries have had enough, and turn on their dictatorial leadership, the US always feigns shock, and wonders why it happened, and searches for other countries to blame.

Hopefully, if the current leadership here decides that that the Manas base has to shut down, the US is not going to do anything profoundly stupid, as Russia also has a base here in Kyrgyzstan, just 20 miles away from Manas.

The viability of Manas is not worth getting into a shooting war with Russia over; there are surely other alternatives.

The 'Full Version' of The Wikileaks Video Is Missing 30 Minutes of Footage

Thanks to http://kennysideshow.blogspot.com/ for the link.

Wikileaks' most compelling aspect is its ability to dig up the raw data behind the scandals it exposes. You can't argue with documents produced by the culprits themselves! That's why 30 minutes of missing footage in their helicopter video matters.

You've all seen the edited, 17 minute video of U.S. Apache helicopters killing two Reuters journalists in Iraq. Some of you may have sat through the 39 minute 'Full Version.". But even this video has a full half-hour of footage cut out from the middle. At 31:08, the video fades to black and—according to the time-stamp on the footage—resumes about 30 minutes later to show an additional missile attack.

On the Multiple Death Threats I Have Received

The threats have come not from anonymous callers, but from identifiable people here in the United States who have put their threats in writing, to be carried out by their hired guns. I believe these people are delusional. They actually think they have a right to kill me, "for my own good". I am hoping you can provide some guidance on what precautions I should take to protect me from these people.

Here is the situation.....

329 Pasco County Teaching Jobs Could Be Lost

In 2008 I ran for state representative, the main point of my platform was education reform.

Since the last election cycle we’ve seen the education sector in Florida hit hard by the depression we’re experiencing in this state...

CrimeX Gold “Bust” To Cause Gold Price Collapse?

Please go to commentary with the above title!

I will attempt to address the following here in this piece.
1. Comex “crash” may not induce the “parabolic rise” some are waiting for.
2. “Elite” may well actually allow this to happen as they could care less and most will have no recourse in such an event.
3. A gold “bust” could actually be the cause of some type of “meltdown” that we do not see coming besides munis, cdo’s, cds etc.
And of course to continue to debunk “gold will be the new currency and the only way to survive” fear and greed based mandate of “gold bugs”

At the Geopolitical Crossroads of China and Russia: Kyrgyzstan And The Battle For Central Asia

Which direction the next Kyrgyz government takes will have repercussions far beyond the nation's small size and population (slightly over five million).

It could affect U.S. and NATO plans for the largest military offensive of the Afghan war scheduled to begin in two months in Kandahar province.

It could determine the future of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the two major potential barriers to Western military penetration of vast tracts of Eurasia.

The stakes could hardly be higher.

F-16s scrambled to escort plane into Denver

The North American Aerospace Defense Command says two F-16 jets were scrambled from a Colorado air base to intercept a plane headed into Denver's airport Wednesday night.

A North American Aerospace spokesman, John Cornelio, says the jets from Buckley Air Force Base escorted the plane to Denver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! Those F-16s got to that plane really fast. Just about as fast as the jets that intercepted Payne Stewart's runaway Learjet!

What a shame the F-16s were not that fast on 9-11!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slavoj Žižek: ‘We face an apocalyptic crisis of the commons’ -

[The] modern crisis of the commons will be the battle ground upon which the future is decided. If Berlusconi and his ilk have their way, ‘Groucho Marx Authoritarianism’ may lead us to a tomorrow where we have the ‘freedom’ to choose between a hundred different types of toothpaste but no freedom to dethrone those who oppress us. If the neoliberal capitalists retain power, we may be led into a future where a ‘beneficent’ elite supports half the world’s poor with philanthropy and charity. If the crisis of the commons isn’t responsibly addressed, we may be led into a future where privacy is some obscure idea in history books and mega-media conglomerates are free to undercut our agency by targeting us with neuralmarketing. If our commons aren’t protected we won’t have the freedom to be free.

The Real Story On Census Fines

ssue #1: What Is the Fine for Refusing to Fill Out and Send In the Decennial Census Form?

The question is, if an individual or family, as an act of civil disobedience or otherwise, is found to have refused or willfully failed to answer any census question, is that individual subject to a fine of up to $100, a fine for each unanswered question of up to $100 (making the total fine for the decennial census form up to $1,000) or a fine of up to $5,000? A related question is whether the fine for refusal to answer questions on the decennial census is the same as for refusal to answer questions on the American Community Survey.

Kyrgyz Opposition Forms Interim Government Backed By The Army

An opposition coalition proclaimed a new interim government Thursday after a violent uprising in Kyrgyzstan and said it would rule until elections are held in six months. But a respected private news agency said the president had proclaimed in an e-mail that he would not relinquish power.

Kyrgyzstan, which shares a 533-mile (858-kilometer) border with China, is also a gateway to other energy-rich Central Asian countries where China, Russia and the U.S. are competing fiercely for dominance. It is a predominantly Muslim country, but it has remained secular.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In light of the fact that President Bakiyev has not officially stepped down, things could still get very dicey here in a heartbeat.

And that one-year extension on the US base at Manas will be over toward the end of this year. One has to wonder if the new government will simply ask more money from the US, or tell the US to leave.

Qatari diplomat causes bomb scare on U.S. flight after 'trying to sneak a cigarette in the bathroom'

A Qatari diplomat trying to sneak a cigarette in an airplane bathroom prompted a bomb scare on a U.S. flight last night.

Fighter jets were scrambled as air marshals on the plane arrested the man.

When he was asked about the smell of smoke in the bathroom, he joked that he had been trying to light his shoes - an apparent reference to the 2001 so-called 'shoe bomber' Richard Reid.

No explosives were found on the diplomat - named as as Mohammed Al-Madadi - and officials do not believe he was trying to harm anyone.

The Monkey and the Mango Vase

Toppling some of the unbelievably corrupt governments of the west is an idea whose time has come but it’s pointless to focus on the politicians. These are just the ordinary whores plying their trade street side. It’s the bankers that need to come down and have all their money redistributed. It’s the pimps and the crime bosses that you want, not the lying mouthpieces who work for them.

Obama and Medvedev sign nuclear disarmament treaty

The United States and Russia signed a landmark disarmament treaty on Thursday they hope will herald better bilateral ties and raise pressure on countries seeking nuclear weapons to renounce such ambitions.

The agreement will cut strategic nuclear arsenals deployed by the former Cold War foes by 30 percent within seven years but leave each with enough to destroy the other.

This DEFINITELY puts Israel in a much better position.

Cancer vaccine programme suspended after 4 girls die

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has told Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat to immediately suspend the cervical cancer control vaccination programme for girls. The programme is part of a two-year study to look into the utility of a vaccine in public health programmes and acceptability of Gardasil, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine made by Merck. Gardasil, available in chemist shops across the country, is marketed in India by MSD Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd.
The programme was marred by controversy after four deaths and complications among 120 girls were reported after vaccination. The girls complained of stomach disorders, epilepsy, headaches and early menarche. Women activists fear the vaccine may impact the mental health of girls who have shown no signs of distress so far.

And here's their conclusion:

The United States does not know how to reduce demand for drugs. The United States is not prepared to legalize drugs. This means the choice lies between the status quo and a complex and uncertain (to say the least) intervention. We suspect the United States will attempt some limited variety of the latter, while in effect following the current strategy and living with the problem.

Much of the battle against the pathocracy takes place in the realm of ideas and how they are communicated across the world. This is a thought war.

Police Open Fire On Opposition Rally In Kyrgyzstan

Demonstrators furious over government corruption and a recent hike in power prices looted the state television and radio building and were marching toward the Interior Ministry in the capital, Bishkek, according to Associated Press reporters on the scene. Elite police opened fire to drive crowds back from government headquarters.

Opposition activist Shamil Murat told the AP that Interior Minister Moldomusa Kongatiyev was beaten to death by a mob in the western town of Talas where the unrest erupted a day ago. The respected Fergana.ru Web site reported later that Kongatiyev was badly beaten but had not died, saying its own reporter had witnessed the beating.

Israel and the question of legitimacy

As the world wakes up to the reality of the colonial implant in the Middle East known as Israel, the hitherto unthinkable question of that implant’s legitimacy is on more people’s lips than ever before.

Thanks to the internet, which is allowing a growing number of ordinary people to learn the truth about Israel, and thanks to the brutality and barbarousness of the Zionist entity itself, the previously taboo question of how an essentially illegitimate and lawless rogue state came to acquire so much power and support in the United Stated and in the former imperialist powers of Europe is begging to be answered.

'Weekend at Bernie's' Inspires Hilarious Real-Life Airline Hijinks

If you needed proof that the hilarious events in Weekend at Bernie's aren't really grounded in reality, then look no further than this story about two women who tried to sneak a dead man onto a recent flight from Liverpool to Berlin. The ladies, who're clearly huge fans of Terry Kiser, put the corpse in a wheelchair, propped some sunglasses on him, and hoped for the best. Airline officials were not fooled by their cunning ruse, however -- most likely because they neglected to figure out a way to make his limbs move like a marionette's (it's all in the wrist).

Judge dismisses scores of Guantanamo habeas cases

A federal judge has dismissed more than 100 habeas corpus lawsuits filed by former Guantanamo captives, ruling that because the Bush and Obama administrations had transferred them elsewhere, the courts need not decide whether the Pentagon imprisoned them illegally.

Hogan's ruling, issued last Thursday, but not widely publicized, closed the files on 105 habeas corpus petitions, many of which had been pending for years as the Bush administration resisted the right of civilian judges to intervene in military detentions. The U.S. Supreme Court resolved that issue in 2008, ruling in Boumediene v. Bush that the detainees could challenge their captivity in civilian court.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope this decision gets appealed.

Many of the people who wound up at Gitmo were either at the most absolutely wrong place at the worst possible time, or got turned in for a bounty by local people eager for the cash that the US was handing out like candy to find "alleged terrorists."

We're From the Government; We're Here to "Help" You to Death

Any day that begins with the arrival of armed strangers on one's doorstep is going to end badly. Despite her afflictions, Stuckey was lucid enough to understand that principle, and she did the entirely rational thing: She bluntly invited the police to direct their unwanted attention elsewhere. Since she wasn't suspected of a crime, that should have ended the matter.

But the police weren't investigating a crime. They were carrying out a much more dangerous function: They were there to "help" Stuckey, whether or not this would be appropriate, and her desires were irrelevant to the matter.

Canadian dollar hits parity vs. U.S. dollar

The Canadian dollar rose to one-for-one footing with the U.S. currency on Tuesday, hitting its strongest level since July 2008, boosted by rising commodity prices and expectations for higher domestic interest rates.

At 7:38 a.m. (1138 GMT), the Canadian dollar was at C$1.0008, or 99.92 U.S. cents. Earlier, the currency rose to C$0.9999 to the U.S. dollar or $1.0001.

Record $16M fine levelled against Toyota over slow recalls, allegedly hiding 'dangerous defect'

The U.S. government accused Toyota of hiding a "dangerous defect" and proposed a record US$16.4-million fine on Monday for failing to quickly alert regulators to safety problems in gas pedals on popular models such as the Camry and Corolla. The proposed fine, announced Monday by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, is the most the government could levy for the sticking gas pedals that have led Toyota to recall millions of vehicles. There could be further penalties under continuing federal investigations. The Japanese automaker faces private lawsuits seeking many millions more.

Toyota Motor Corp. has recalled more than six million vehicles in the U.S., and more than eight million worldwide, because of acceleration problems in multiple models and braking issues in the Prius hybrid.

ABC escalates Iran war propaganda: parrots CIA dubious claim of “defected” Iranian scientist

ABC doesn’t question the CIA’s truthfulness of such a report or the legality for holding Shahram Amiri, despite:

Utah governor signs bills to seize federal land

Salt Lake City - Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert has signed two bills authorizing the state to use eminent domain to seize some of the federal government's most valuable land.

Supporters hope the bills, which the Republican governor signed Saturday, will trigger a flood of similar legislation throughout the West and, eventually, a Supreme Court battle that they hope to win -- against long odds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Federal government will absolutely all within its power to prevent this from happening, and very possibly for the following reason: these Federally owned lands may have been seized as collateral for US debt.

As reported on 30 November, 2008 in:

http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-SCAM-behind-NAIS--Ou-by-Derry-Brownfield-081130-795.html

The SCAM behind NAIS - "Our Land: Collateral for the National Debt"

"During the first three days, the group was told that the WILDERNESS CONGRESS was about beating the ozone deterioration and bringing the rain forests back. The following days were closed to the public. With only the bankers in attendance, the topics discussed centered on the creation of a "WORLD CONSERVATION BANK" with collateral being derived from receipt of wilderness properties throughout the world. This bank would have central bank powers similar to the Federal Reserve. It would create currency and loans and engage in international discounting, counter-trade, barter and swap actions. Rothschild personally conducted the monetary matters and the creation of this WORLD CONSERVATION BANK. This bank would refinance by swapping debt for assets. A country with a huge national debt would receive money to pay off the debt by swapping the debt for wilderness lands.

The plan was to swap one trillion dollars of Third World Debt into this new bank. In the long term, when the countries won't be able to pay off the loans, governments from around the world will give title to their wilderness lands to the bankers."

Taken a look at the US deficit clock lately? This country is nasty-broke. The national debt as of today is $12.7 trillion dollars, with a T.

New report finds drug prohibition, stricter law enforcement key sources of violence and gun crime

Canada’s war on drugs has failed to curb the illicit drug trade, and proposed legal interventions to disrupt the drug market will have no effect on drug supply and may actually boost rates of drug-related violence, according to a new scientific review. [...] Researchers at the Urban Health Research Initiative [...] conducted a systematic review of all available English-language scientific literature to examine the impacts of drug law enforcement on drug market violence. [... and] identified 15 international studies examining the impact of drug law enforcement on violence. Contrary to the prevailing belief that drug law enforcement reduces violence, 87% of the studies (13 studies) observed that drug law enforcement was associated with increasing levels of drug market violence.

Mongolia, however remote it is and previously inaccessible it may have been, is no exception to the wave of worldwide U.S. military expansion.

NATO now has a military partner squeezed between Russia and China.

With its vast expanse (over 600,000 square miles) and its sparse population (less than 3 million people with almost 40 percent living in the capital), Mongolia is the optimal location for U.S. military surveillance (ground, air and satellite) to monitor China and Russia simultaneously.

Kroger is quoted as saying that “I think it is critical that the courts hear not just from the opponents of the health care legislation, but from those states that believe it is constitutional.” He plans to ask attorney generals in other state to work with Oregon to develop a legal strategy.

Sonja Karbar reminds us that beyond Washington’s superficial admonishing of Israel over its humiliation of the Obama administration lie the unbreakable shackles that paralyse the US and prevent it from translating its words into real action to rein in the Zionist monster.

”The disconnect between words and actions might please those who want peace more than they want justice for the Palestinians, but for many the words have been done to death. By the time proximity talks morph into full negotiations, there will be no Jerusalem left to negotiate and no Palestinians left in Jerusalem. All words will then be meaningless.”

Britain and America linked to Somali pirates, Somalia still suffers

Tim Coles argues that British and US policies in Somalia, and London’s and Washington’s support for warlord Abdullahi Yusuf’s Transitional Federal Government, belie their opposition to the Somali pirates.

Expected Obama Administration Backing for Indonesian State Terror

The news comes ahead of Obama’s expected announcement of new military aid, falsely claiming TNI and Kopassas "no longer murder civilians." They always did and now do, according to a senior Indonesian official (unnamed for his safety), speaking out because he opposes the practice.

"TNI still practices political murder." Yet America rewards it, despite being legally bound not to and to provide Congress with relevant information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has a pathology of supporting its tinpot dictators abroad, then becoming confused when the people of those countries have had enough terror and intimidation.

New Obama Law Places ‘Soviet-Style’ Capital Controls on Americans

It’s Official – America Now Enforces Capital Controls

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer country. On March 18, with very little pomp and circumstance, president Obama passed the most recent stimulus act, the $17.5 billion Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act (H.R. 2487), brilliantly goalseeked by the administration’s millionaire cronies to abbreviate as HIRE. As it was merely the latest in an endless stream of acts destined to expand the government payroll to infinity, nobody cared about it, or actually read it.

MONSANTO CONTROLS 90% OF FUTURE SEED

.....uh-oh./

"We now believe that Monsanto has control over as much as 90 percent of (seed genetics). This level of control is almost unbelievable... The upshot of that is that it's tightening Monsanto's control, and makes it possible for them to increase their prices long term. And we've seen this happening the last five years, and the end is not in sight."

Decriminalizing pot would devastate cartels

One step forward: California voters will get a chance in November to decide if the state should legalize marijuana. Two steps backward: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently told authorities in Mexico that the United States was looking at anything that worked to fight the drug cartels killing Mexicans daily — but responded “no” when asked if anything included legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana.

“Our President Is Deceiving the American Public”

"Well, for years now, really since we set out to go into Iraq on much the same kinds of lies in 2002 that sent us into Vietnam when I was in the Pentagon, since then, I’ve been saying to officials in the government, “Don’t do what I did. Do what I wish I had done in ’63 or ’64, before we had entered the war, before the bombs had fallen. Don’t wait, as I did, ’til we were in the war and the war was essentially unstoppable, before telling the truth about the hopelessness, understood within the government, and the impossibility—the unlikelihood of any kind of victory there. But do it now.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iraq is a basket case, and we are losing in Afghanistan.

The only question is when the "Saigon Moment" will come in the history of the US occupation of Afghanistan, and how much more blood and treasure will be spent before this illegal and immoral war has finished.

The next war we must stop before it starts is a war against Iran.

Because if this war begins, I wouldn't bet against Russia and China joining the fray in behalf of Iran; and Russia and China do have nuclear weapons.

After all, lest we forget, according to the narrative in question, for some indescribable reason the creator of the universe DID decide one day to focus His infinite attention and affection on one tiny, seemingly insignificant percentage of his handiwork, commanding them to then go about the business of invading, stealing, enslaving and genociding those who did not “bless them” in a way deemed acceptable.

Opposed to Obamacare? Then You Must Be a Racist

Frank Rich spent many years as the theater critic for the New York Times, where, at worst, his venom could cause a Broadway production or two to close down.

Now, however, Mr. Rich opines on political and social issues for the Times, and, while the results are usually mildly amusing (even if unintentionally so), his reach has grown a bit, so the damage he causes can travel beyond the footlights. I’m not sure why anyone turns to Rich for political analysis—heck, you might as well read the rantings of a TV game show host—but the Gray Lady continues to pay him for his weekly column, and, at the rate she’s bleeding money, that’s no small sacrifice.

How Neutral Is American Neutrality In The Middle East?

The recent dueling positions of long time friends and all time allies Israel and America over the construction of 1,600 new apartments in east Jerusalem has obviously hit the headlines worldwide. This has lead to a few high dramatic enactments including the Vice President Joe Biden being reported to be ‘embarrassed;’ Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton calling the Israeli land policy ‘provocative’ and termed it as not in Israel’s long-term interests and undermined U.S. credibility as a neutral mediator. At this juncture it is really worthwhile to examine the claims of America as the neutral broker in the long standing Israeli Palestine conflict.

Democrats threaten companies hit hard by health care bill

Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, has summoned some of the nation's top executives to Capitol Hill to defend their assessment that the new national health care reform law will cost their companies hundreds of millions of dollars in health insurance expenses. Waxman is also demanding that the executives give lawmakers internal company documents related to health care finances -- a move one committee Republicans describes as "an attempt to intimidate and silence opponents of the Democrats' flawed health care reform legislation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Waxman had to know these moves were coming on the part of large corporations, and all his threats and belligerence can do nothing to forestall it.

And small businesses?!? You will see them simply collapse under the weight of these new regulations.

Deep Background - Assassinating Americans

Killing dissident citizens without due process is not a unique practice. Libyans, Iranians, and Soviets all did it in the 1980s and 1990s. But it is unusual in a liberal democracy where there are restraints on depriving a citizen of his life. The odd thing is that no one who matters seems too disturbed. No congressional committee protested, the New York Times only ran a short discussion thread on its online opinion page, and the Washington Post relegated the story to page 3 without any follow-up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama's approval of extrajudicial assassinations means that he has absolutely no respect for, or faith in, the rule of law, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights.

As heinous as US citizens' crimes against the state may be, we used to depend on due process through which to convict them for their crimes.

we used to be a nation of laws, not a nation of men.

Now, due to Obama's having institutionalized extrajudicial assassination, this country is behaving like any third-world tin-pot dictatorship, and killing with impunity.

Resistance By William Grigg

Meservey was neutralized and not long from the comforting embrace of alcohol-induced unconsciousness. Thus it seems obvious to someone not indoctrinated in the state’s view of discretionary killing that there was no reason to use lethal force of any kind in this situation. Using the minimal force necessary to take the keys away from Meservey would have ended any threat the drunk posed to persons and property.

But Meservey had done something more serious than threaten the lives and property of other citizens; he had insulted a police officer through his persistent refusal to submit.

Obama Democrats VS Tea Party Republicans: A Fake Fight Over Fake Health Care Reform

The margin and distribution of votes last weekend reveals White House effort to blame Republican obstruction and Democratic progressives for the delay in passing health care to have been utter scams. Not one Republican voted for the bill, and no Republican votes were ever needed. While the White House allowed 26 of 58 Democratic Blue Dogs to vote against the bill, including Art Davis of Alabama and John Marshall and John Barrow of Georgia, it applied incredible pressure against Dennis Kucinch and other advocates of single payer to line up behind the pro-corporate, anti health care bill. They, and the movement for real universal health care, for single payer, were the White House's real foes.

We Are in the Middle of Transformational Change: It's Time the Debate Matches up with the Huge Challenges Ahead of Us

A better world is possible. So is a worse one. Which will we get? Finding the proper focus is itself a challenge.

For example, much of the conversation these days among well-meaning people about the state of our economy and what the president (or somebody) ought to do about it centers on jobs. Do we need more jobs? The conventional answer is of course we do, so let’s keep on having the old arguments about tax breaks versus government stimulus, big business versus small business, blah, blah, blah.

But maybe we don’t need "jobs" at all. Maybe instead of scurrying around to create "jobs" as defined for the last 100 years we should start by taking a different tack altogether.

This is Americanism, the only predatory ideology to deny that it is an ideology. The rise of tentacular corporations that are dictatorships in their own right and of a military that is now a state with the state, set behind the façade of the best democracy 35,000 Washington lobbyists can buy, and a popular culture programmed to divert and stultify, is without precedent. More nuanced perhaps, but the results are both unambiguous and familiar. Denis Halliday and Hans von Sponeck, the senior United Nations officials in Iraq during the American and British-led blockade, are in no doubt they witnessed genocide. They saw no gas chambers. Insidious, undeclared, even presented wittily as enlightenment on the march, the Third World War and its genocide proceeded, human being by human being.

Obama's 'Big F*cking Health Care Deal'

Karl Marx said that communism can be summed up in one sentence and if anyone really knew how to summarize communism, it was Comrade Marx. He said that the theory of the communists is: "The abolition of private property." In an all-powerful communist state, the state can forcefully remove any private property from any property owner and hand their property over to another party that the state deems is more "in need" of the confiscated property.

Comrade Obama has now signed into law the state demand that we hand over our privately owned compensation for our labor (i.e., our money) to the corrupt insurance industry.

So legally twisted was the course they took, it will take years to sort out the legal and constitutional questions.
