Cars of the Future, Coming to a Driveway Near You

When New Yorker Jeanine Getz hops in her car in the morning, turns the key and rolls onto the street, everything seems completely normal -- except Getz isn't using even a drop of gasoline.

That's because Getz was preselected as one of more than 100 Americans to test-drive one of Chevrolet's most ambitious automobiles yet, the hydrogen-fueled Equinox.

UnitedHealth Lobbyist Announces Pelosi Fundraiser As She Begins Backing Off Public Option

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the first time yesterday suggested she may be backing off her support of the public option. According to CNN, Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "said they would support any provision that increases competition and accessibility for health insurance - whether or not it is the public option favored by most Democrats."

This announcement came just hours before Steve Elmendorf, a registered UnitedHealth lobbyist and the head of UnitedHealth's lobbying firm Elmendorf Strategies, blasted this email invitation throughout Washington, D.C. I just happened to get my hands on a copy of the invitation from a source - check it out:

The Sacred Mysteries of 9/11

My concerns in this essay are different. I am troubled by something else. I am troubled by the role the political parties, the corporate media and the universities have played, and are still playing, in the construction of the cult of 9/11.

I am bothered by the way they continue to set this day aside as if some sacredness protects it from all rational scrutiny and examination of evidence. Those of us who want to treat 9/11 like a historically important but otherwise ordinary day--who want to examine the crime scene and found out who did it and how—are treated like heretics.

We profane the elements of the cult. We must be “conspiracy nuts.” Or perhaps we hate Jews? Political parties, especially, rush to rid themselves of such scum as we obviously are.[3]

9-11 The Israeli Spy Ring

Let us be clear here. There is nothing benign about Israel spying on the United States. When Jonathan Pollard stole our nuclear secrets (which your taxes paid to develop) and sent them to Israel, Israel did not hesitate to trade those secrets to the USSR in exchange for increased emigration quotas.

The implication of these facts is that the billions of our tax dollars sent to Israel (while women and children sleep in America's alleys and eat out of trash bins) have bought and paid for a monstrous phone tracking and phone tapping system that can eavesdrop on almost any phone call in America. Even the White House phones were open to such tapping by listening in on the other end outside the White House itself.

9/11 anniversary: a lovely day for a spot of protesting at the BBC

I'll say this about 9/11: it was absolutely bonkers. It was double-plus bonkers with a cherry on top. And I find it bonkers squared that anyone can look back on that godforsaken day and think that they know exactly what happened. As if a giant CASE CLOSED has been stamped across the skyline of New York. As if 9/11 is a question that's been answered, a theorem that's been solved. Clearly, to the satisfaction of many, it has – but to the people standing outside the BBC today, the mystery and outrage not only haven't gone away, they're deeper and stronger than ever.

Remembering the Villains, Seven come 9/11.

Oh, there will be those audio/visual presentations that will fill us with the remembered shock and awe of that day and silverfish from the sewers will crawl up into the news casting booths in suits and ties with blow-dried hair and a Halcyon glare and talk about what happened. They’ll have their little cameos and vignettes as the dutiful graduates of MKUltra and Tavistock share their recovered memories. So… they’ll be doing that and I thought I would do a little something too and that would be to remember the villains of 9/11, the people who planned and carried out the attacks and give them a little face time.

Therefore, in no special order and with a few facts and figures missing here and there, we will name some of the major players.

Obama says 9-11 victims were "sacrifice?"

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the president would "speak about what the day means and the sacrifices of thousands, not just at the Pentagon, but in Pennsylvania and certainly and most obviously in New York".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am linking to the cache of this story because this particular quote has already been expunged from the story.

From a reader: Isn't the whole idea about sacrifice is that it is to be something of value to the person giving it up? A nation "sacrifices" it's young people (its future) in war for the "greater good of protecting the nation". Parents make sacrifices for their children (they give up some things important to them in order to provide for their children) Ancient priests convinced their followers to give up a beautiful young woman or man to appease an angry God.

POTUS, I don't believe, is inclined to make these kind of semantic errors, he is well-educated and very well spoken. I can only believe that this means he is admitting that victims of 9/11 were sacrificed by those in the American Government who saw it (and continue to see it) as necessary for the greater good.

The creation of "terrorism" has been an excuse for a rapid evolution of sophisticated weaponry in the US military and the assault on Saddam - televised globally - gave the world the message that the US has technological superiority over all other nations and solidified their position as a nation to be feared and obeyed (at least that is what they hoped).

NATO Goes Green -- for Ill-Gotten Gains

NATO, the "North Atlantic" treaty organization now fighting a slaughterous war in, er, Central Asia, is going green,setting up a new panel of heavy-duty worthies to pursue the strategic ramifications of global climate change. But as David Cronin reports in the Guardian, when militarists mull the ailments of Mother Earth, they aren't looking to mop the old lady's brow; they're trying to shake her down for every little bauble she's got left. The whole piece is worth reading, but here are some excerpts:

What Would Jesus Say (to a Zio-Christian)?

Would Christ be happy that Zionist Jews shoot children in the head and the heart? Johnny Thalijieh was an altar boy at a Greek Orthodox Church; he was shot by an Israeli soldier while he was standing in front of his uncle's store. Do you know that the Christian villagers of Bir'im watched as the Israelis bombed their village in the 1950's? Even though the villagers wanted to live peacefully among the Israelis and didn't even want the part of the land back that European Jews had stolen from them, the Israelis wanted to assure that they would not return so they bombed their beloved village.

CIA Officer Responsible for pre-9/11 Failures, Tora Bora Escape, Rendition to Torture Revealed

Blee was a key figure in the pre-9/11 intelligence failures, the CIA station chief in Afghanistan when Osama bin Laden escaped from Tora Bora and instrumental in setting up the Bush administration’s rendition and torture policies.

I confirmed Blee’s identity in this document, notes drafted by a 9/11 Commission staffer, apparently in preparation of the drafting of the final report. The notes were found along with thousands of other 9/11 Commission files at the National Archives by History Commons contributor Erik Larson, who uploaded them to the 9/11 Document Archive at Scribd. I previously blogged other interesting aspects of the notes here and here.

Blee is mentioned several times in the 9/11 Commission’s files, but his name is always redacted, as it has been in the media until now. However, in one case the people doing the redactions let it slip past them.

Death and Dying in the Age of No Change's Non War It's Time to be Impolite About Afghanistan

The phrase from Tacitus comes to mind with only a slight modification. "They make desolation," he wrote. "and call it peace." In Afghanistan, they make desolation and call it freedom. Enduring freedom. This is the lesson the Afghans must learn. When you are the occupied, the native, the wog, you are subject to the occupier's definitions. He will kill your wives and children and call it pacification. He will choose your leaders, tell you to vote and call it democracy. He will kick in the doors to your home, arrest you and your sons, and call you insurgents. Of course, it is this very practice which turns many of your men into said insurgents.

FDA Approves “Emergency Rules” for Mass Medication of Population with Anti-Viral Drugs

The FDA has approved using the antiviral drugs Tamiflu and Relenza without many of the normal protections, in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) declaration of a health emergency in response to H1N1 swine flu.

Under the 2004 Project BioShield Law, the FDA is authorized to make an “Emergency Use Declaration” (EUD) allowing drugs to be used in a manner normally prohibited by federal regulations. This might entail allowing the use of an otherwise unapproved drug, or allowing previously unapproved uses of a drug that is already on the market.

The new rules will remain in effect until withdrawn by the FDA or until the declaration of health emergency is lifted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, as far as I know, inoculations have not yet been mandated by the Federal Government, and each state is supposed to decide whether or not to mandate inoculations.

Let us hope that, unlike what happened in Massachusetts, cool heads will prevail in the officers of state governors around the country.

Selling Death: Wall Street’s Newest Bubble

When Wall Street’s commodities bubble crashed last year, I asked whether the next bubble might be in securitized body parts. Wall Street would search the world for transplantable organs, holding them in cold storage as collateral against securities sold to managed money such as pension funds. Of course, it was meant to be an apocryphal story about unregulated banksters gone wild. But as the NYT reports, Wall Street really is moving forward to market bets on death. The banksters would purchase life insurance policies, pool and tranch them, and sell securities that allow money managers to bet that the underlying “collateral” (human beings) will die an untimely death. You can’t make this stuff up.

So, if there is a "sudden unexpected pandemic" (TM USAMRID), these guys get rich!

IDF officer: Soldiers can't beat Palestinian civilians

The only reason this case ever saw the light of day was that the soldier actually got caught beating a Palestinian civilian.

Abuse of Palestinians is standard procedure for the IDF, as long as they're pretty sure no one caught it on video, or a cell phone camera.

September 11 Attacks: The Greatest Fraud of the 21st Century

The mysterious details of the terrorist acts set off speculation about the possible participation of US top officials in the attacks, who used them to reach their political goals.

US May Be Sucked Into Yemeni Civil War

As the Yemeni government continues to reject calls for talks to end the conflict in the nation’s Shi’ite dominated north, rising numbers of displaced are creating a humanitarian crisis which and the conflict seems set to be long enough to force Yemen to seek international help.

Analysts say that as the conflict continues to escalate the US risks being sucked into the nation’s civil war, if for no other reason than to prevent Yemen from becoming another failed state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in:

http://www.worldpress.org/Mideast/3387.cfm

"On July 17, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh celebrated the 31st anniversary of his ascension to power. The Sana'a regime, perverted by corruption, is largely unable to provide public services, including water, electricity, security, medical care and education. A third of Yemenis—7 million people—are malnourished. Police and military units act as enforcers for corrupt officials. The judiciary dispenses political retribution. Torture in Yemeni jails is systemic and brutal.

"U.S. military aid intended for border security may wind up fueling atrocities. The Yemeni military bombed cities and villages heavily in the northern Sa'ada province while countering a rebellion that began in 2004. The Sa'ada War, dubbed "Yemen's Darfur," forced nearly 200,000 citizens to flee their homes. The government blocked food, aid and medicine to 700,000 Sa'ada residents in "an act that appears to constitute an illegal collective punishment," Human Rights Watch found. Officials explained the deliberate starvation was meant to pressure villagers to turn over rebel fighters."

What the US government hasn't learned in its long and sordid history of interventionism, is that when you continue to support a dictator, there will be a flashpoint where the people will no longer sit still for it.

So now, this government may be militarily propping up a dictator, generally hated by his own people, to insure the flow of oil from the Gulf, just as we did with the Shah of Iran.

(You do, of course, remember just how brilliantly that worked out).

What Role Did the U.S.-Israeli Relationship Play in 9-11?

A mass murder, articles, books, think tanks and Pentagon insiders, however, are not enough to manage the variables in a “probabilistic” war-planning model. Supportive policy makers are also required to lend the appearance of legitimacy and credibility to an operation justified by intelligence fixed around a pre-determined agenda.

That role was eagerly filled by Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, a Jewish Zionist from Connecticut, and Jon Kyl, a Christian Zionist from Arizona, when they co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. Echoing Tel Aviv’s agenda in A Clean Break, their bill laid another mental thread in the public mindset by calling for the removal of Saddam Hussein–three years before 9-11.

Senate panel OKs $636 billion Pentagon budget with $128 billion for Iraq, Afghanistan wars

With hardly any debate, a powerful Senate committee Thursday approved President Barack Obama's $128 billion request for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for the budget year beginning in October.

Senate panel chairman Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, would not say whether he believes $128 billion would be enough for military operations in the two countries.

"Well, we're taking the word of the administration," Inouye said after the panel session.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While Americans slip deeper into poverty, and homeless Vets sleep in our streets, more and more of our taxpayer dollars are being committed to these insane wars without end.

We only have one party in this country, and that's the War Party, which controls both houses of congress, and have for some time.

And wars are great... if you're a defense contractor, or a senator or congressional representative who has been "acquired" by a major defense contractor or two, through overt and covert campaign contributions.

People behind 9/11 plotting another attack: Mullen

"The people behind the 9/11 attacks are planning and plotting other attacks. Qaida and its extremist allies would like nothing better than to strike us again," Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen said at a September 11th Commemoration Ceremony at the Pentagon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Admiral Mullen: thinking Americans understand that this government would love nothing better than to pull off another stunning false flag, to cow the American people into stunned submission and meekly accept whatever government agenda would be served by such an event.

However, as rapidly as 9/11 came apart from the standpoint of the sheer force of logic which showed that the official story couldn't possibly be true, one would hope that those elements in government would love to give this another try, will not be allowed to do it (as was the case with Operation Northwoods).

Poverty hits 1 in 8 Americans

About 2.5 million Americans slipped below the poverty line as recession and layoffs hammered the economy last year, driving poverty to its highest level since 1998, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Thursday.

The annual survey showed that more than one in eight U.S. residents - 13.2 percent - are living on less than $10,991 for an individual - slightly more than $200 a week - or $22,025 for a family of four.

U.S. rejects Iran's proposal for talks

The State Department rejected Iran's latest proposal for international talks Thursday in another sign of trouble for the Obama administration's top-priority effort to engage Tehran in nuclear negotiations.

U.S. officials say Obama will decide by the end of the year whether to continue his offer of negotiations or withdraw it, and step up sanctions to force the Islamic Republic to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, that rejection sure didn't take long.

And notice that we seem to have a shifting deadline; first the administration was talking about giving Iran until the end of September. Now, it appears to have stretched to the end of the year.

2 Lebanese Rockets Fired Toward Israel

Two rockets were fired from southern Lebanon into Israel on Friday, prompting Israel to respond with artillery fire, Lebanese security and military officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel has been looking for an excuse - any excuse, actually - to go back into Lebanon. And this time, they'll go all the way to the Litani River because they're desperate for its water.

911 Reason why 9/11 was (probably) an inside job. Part II. The Pentagon Crash

Consider the following: On October 25, 1999, a tiny Learjet 35 departed from Orlando, Florida that was carrying Payne Stewart, a professional American golfer. About 14 minutes after departing from the airport, the control tower lost contact with his plane. So the air-traffic controllers, following rigid protocol regarding lost aircraft, immediately notified the US Air Force.

According to FAA official transcripts, “At 9:52 a U.S. Air Force F-16 from the 40th Flight Test Squadron at the Englin Air Force was vectored toward the aircraft.”

At 9:54 – just two minutes after the command to intercept had been ordered – the fighter jet had already spotted Payne Stewart's wayward aircraft.

Of course, some of the people who challenge the official story are, indeed, crackpots: they think some kind of "controlled demolition" took place inside the World Trade Center, and that no plane hit the Pentagon.

This is very convenient for enforcers of the Official Truth: it’s easy to write these people off as nutso, and even easier to tar everyone who questions crucial aspects of the approved narrative with the same broad brush.

Did Cash for Clunkers Help Auto Sales?

The busy folks at the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) released a quartet of studies today, covering the economic impacts of:

»The stimulus act.
»The state assistance in the
stimulus act.
»Stimulus efforts in other countries.
»The Cash-for-Clunkers program.

People trade in clunkers and buy new cars all the time. CEA estimates that about 200,000 such new car sales would have happened in July and August without the program.

Rep. Wilson is Right – Government Will Provide Obamacare to Illegals

Last night, in the middle of Obama’s corporate media prime-time address on health care, South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson accused Obama of lying about illegals and health care. Wilson made his accusation after Obama pointed at the Republican side of the aisle and criticized them for opposing the government plan during his speech to a joint session of Congress

Bloodsuckers in Blue

Do you cling to the cherished belief that the Constitution protects the integrity of your person, and shields you from being forced to incriminate yourself? You silly prole — the state has jurisdiction over the very blood in your veins, and can force you to undergo a blood test administered any time a uniformed tax feeder demands it of you.

This may involve being strapped to a “phlebotomy chair” in the local police station and being jabbed by a fumble-fingered donut-burner who is not a competent health care professional under Hippocratic discipline.

The Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that “police can force a blood-alcohol test if suspected drunken drivers refuse to take one,” reports Spokane NBC affiliate KHQ.

Kids Being Grabbed Out Of Refugee Camps

It was first written off as a sex ring, but that didn't make any sense. Who is going to pay $2,000 to have sex with a 12 year-old black boy, when you have hundreds of 10 year-old white Ukrainian girls all over Tel Aviv. But someone is paying $3,000 a kid wholesale, and the reason is black market organs.

It's just economics in organ trading. You bring in a 12 year-old into Tel Aviv, and you don't just grab one $5,000 kidney, and then spend $200,000 raising the kid through college. That kid hits the operating table and he has kidneys, liver, cornea, heart, lung, marrow, etc., and everything is removed. That kid is murdered for his organs. It happens in Israel because of the security needed to cover the operation.

What Role Did the U.S.-Israeli Relationship Play in 9-11?

On the day of the 9-11 attacks, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the attack would mean for US-Israeli relations. His quick reply was: “It’s very good….Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel).”

Intelligence wars rely on mathematical models to anticipate the response of “the mark” to staged provocations. Reactions thereby become foreseeable—within an acceptable range of probabilities. When Israeli mathematician Robert J. Aumann received the 2005 Nobel Prize in economic science, he conceded that “the entire school of thought that we have developed here in Israel” has turned “Israel into the leading authority in this field.”

Before the fateful World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks on September 11, 2001, most people in the United States and the world beyond were not aware of September the 11th as a significant date in United States history. But, like the persistent widow, the date just keeps popping up... over and over and over again. And again. And again. Oh and, look, there it is again. And ---too weird to be coincidence----the date even managed to turn up in popular entertainment before the 2001 attacks.

Sheen’s 9/11 rant rocks US

HOLLYWOOD star Charlie Sheen has stunned Americans by claiming the US Government were behind the 9/11 atrocity.

Sheen appealed to President Barack Obama to hold a new investigation into the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC.

Sheen, 44, the highest paid actor on US TV, said the official 9/11 story is "an absolute fairytale, a complete work of fiction and not a very good one".

The 9/11 USAF Stand Down

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, simple question here.

The aircraft photographed circling over Washington DC on 9-11 appears to be the special-built E4-B "Kneecap" (National Emergency Airborne Command Post or NEACP), aka the Doomsday Plane. (Another photo of the plane can be seen HERE.)

Radar tracked this aircraft flying into Washington DC 8 minutes ahead of Flight 77.

So, if the government could get this aircraft to DC in time to witness the impact at the Pentagon, why didn't they get fighters there as well?

Russia will support Iran, Israel wants war

Russia hints it will support Iran, not oil embargo
By Steven Edwards,September 10, 2009
UNITED NATIONS — Russia on Thursday threw a wrench into U.S. President Barack Obama's plans to corner Iran over its nuclear program, ruling out new sanctions against the Islamic republic.
The new standoff comes as U.S. intelligence findings say Iran is now ready to take the final leap toward developing a nuclear bomb, according to a U.S. presentation to the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog organization. It also complicates U.S. efforts to convince Israel, which Iran speaks of as an enemy, to hold off on any military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities by giving diplomacy more time to work.

The Pentagon Renovations Completed on 9/11/2001

American Airlines Flight 77 struck the portion of the building that had already been renovated. It was the only area of the Pentagon with a sprinkler system, and it had been reconstructed with a web of steel columns and bars to withstand bomb blasts. The steel reinforcement, bolted together to form a continuous structure through all of the Pentagon's five floors, kept that section of the building from collapsing for 30 minutes--enough time for hundreds of people to crawl out to safety.

The area struck by the plane also had blast-resistant windows--2 inches thick and 2,500 pounds each--that stayed intact during the crash and fire. It had fire doors that opened automatically and newly built exits that allowed people to get out.

JINSA, Jews demand Obama take action on Iran

09/08/2009
Preparing For ‘Plan C’ On Iran
Beneath the surface, this week’s action is “designed to impress upon people in Washington that somebody has to deal with the problem — and that all the moves up until this point have clearly not addressed the problem in a satisfactory way,” said Shoshana Bryen, senior director for security policy at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). “The Jews aren’t coming here to ask the administration to bomb Iran, but I also don’t think they’re coming here specifically asking for sanctions, either, because we know sanctions haven’t worked. What we’re left with is that they’re preparing the ground so that no matter what happens, nobody can say they weren’t warned.”

The Fires in the WTC Wreckage Were Not Conventional Fires

Conventional fires burning under tons of rubble would be oxygen starved, therefore the smoke produced would be black, not white. Also, large amounts of soot would have been produced in five days, therefore the temperatures of the oxygen starved fires should have been significantly lower.

Human Rights Watch investigator accused of collecting Nazi memorabilia

Tension between the Israeli government and Human Rights Watch, the international body that has been critical of the Israeli military's tactics in Gaza, has intensified over revelations that one of the watchdog's investigators is a collector of Nazi memorabilia.

Human Rights Watch has responded to the mounting internet attacks on Garlasco by insisting that the implication he is a Nazi sympathiser is demonstrably false, absurd and an affront to serious military historians.

It points out that his grandfather was a conscript in the German anti-aircraft units, hence Garlasco's interest, while another relative was an American B-17 crewman. In the foreword to his book, Garlasco writes "the war was horrible and cruel, Germany lost and for that we should be thankful".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to those orchestrating these attacks: this is truly looking like desperation on the cusp of madness.

Afghan warlord General Atta Mohammad Nur warning raises fear of election violence

One of Afghanistan’s most powerful warlords has defended the popular right to protest against the presidential election results, raising fears that the country could be engulfed by violence if supporters of the losing candidates reject the poll as being rigged.

Speaking on national television, he accused the country’s Interior Minister, Hanif Atmar, of “forcing people to keep silent”.

His comments follow threats from the Interior Ministry to “break the teeth” of anyone who demonstrates.

US and Russia diverge over Iran

The US State Department said the proposals fell short of satisfying international demands.

But Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said they contained something to work with.

"Based on a brief review of the Iranian papers my impression is there is something there to use," Mr Lavrov said in Moscow.

"The most important thing is (that) Iran is ready for a comprehensive discussion of the situation, what positive role it can play in Iraq, Afghanistan and the region."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lavrov, during his tenure as Russian Foreign Minister, has a history of being logical.

But this issue has nothing to do with logic, and everything to do with Israel's having characterized a nuclear Iran as an "existential threat". Israel is planning to neutralize this perceived threat through either its own direct military action, or (infinitely more preferable to the Israeli government) have the US do it for them.

When it becomes very clear that there will be no more UN sanctions from the Security Council (sanctions Russia and China will veto), look for some kind of unilateral or bilateral sanctions from the US and/or Israel which will be used to escalate tensions all the way to a state of war.

THE EFFECT OF UNEMPLOYMENT ON FORECLOSURES

The foreclosure problem in American is not just subprime mortgages. True, banks have been holding on to their foreclosed properties for months, but now they're getting ready to release them onto the market, which could depress prices for existing homeowners, further driving them underwater. But that's not what I'm talking about.

There are huge tidal waves of alt-a and other types of loan defaults coming (see this and this).

But even that is not the main problem.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that the crash in real estate and rising unemployment together form a negative feedback loop. As McClatchy and the Associated Press note, foreclosures rise as jobs and income drop.

But the idea that an Israeli owned company had inside access to the airport used to launch an abortive terror attack brought to mind the strange message Odigo Systems, another Israeli owned company with offices near the World Trade Towers, received that warned of the impending attacks before the hijacked planes had even left the ground.

Flight 93: Proof of 9/11 Lies by the US Government and Media

Minutes before the 10 a.m. crash, an emergency dispatcher in Pennsylvania received a cell phone call from a man who said he was a passenger locked in a bathroom aboard United Flight 93. The man repeatedly said the call was not a hoax, said dispatch supervisor Glenn Cramer in neighboring Westmoreland County. "We are being hijacked, we are being hijacked!" Cramer quoted the man from a transcript of the call. The man told dispatchers the plane "was going down. He heard some sort of explosion and saw white smoke coming from the plane and we lost contact with him," Cramer said. [Yahoo News, Tuesday September 11 11:27 PM EDT]

Have a good think about the above.

Are we supposed to believe that hijackers armed with only box cutters forced an angry mob to jump from the plane seconds before the crash? Or are we supposed to believe that people simply felt compelled to jump from the plane? If the official story is true then people jumping from the plane is the only way human remains could have been found miles from Flight 93's crash site.

In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the "put options" on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency.

Israel’s Arab Citizens Call General Strike

The increasingly harsh political climate in Israel under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government has prompted the leadership of the country’s 1.3 million Arab citizens to call the first general strike in several years.

The one-day stoppage is due to take place on October 1, a date heavy with symbolism because it marks the anniversary of another general strike, in 2000 at the start of the second intifada, when 13 Arab demonstrators were shot dead by Israeli police.

The Arab leadership said it was responding to a string of what it called “racist” government measures that cast the Arab minority, a fifth of the population, as enemies of the state.

Afghanistan Veteran Rick Reyes Questions Obama’s Push for More Troops

Twenty nine year old Rick Reyes was born to immigrants from Mexico, and grew up in Boyle Heights. He joined the Marine Corps and served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, based on his experience in Afghanistan and given President Obama’s promised troop surge, he thinks the US should at minimum rethink the Afghanistan war. In April Reyes testified to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee alongside other veterans of the Afghan war.

White House Claims 1 Million Jobs Saved, Created By Stimulus Bill

President Obama has promised that his $787 billion stimulus plan will create or save 3.5 million jobs by the end of next year.

Oh? And what will the other $14 trillion handed to Wall Street accomplish?

Heart Stopping Statistics: Israel Kills 773 Civilians

According to a new report published Wednesday by the B’Tselem organization the vast majority of Palestinians killed in Israel’s New Year attack on Gaza were civilians, not “combatants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The Palestinians" would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls." " Isreali Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

"We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves." Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.

"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." Israel Koenig, "The Koenig Memorandum"

"We enthusiastically chose to become a colonial society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justification for all these activities. Passionately desiring to keep the occupied territories, we developed two judicial systems: one - progressive, liberal - in Israel; and the other - cruel, injurious - in the occupied territories. In effect, we established an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately following their capture. That oppressive regime exists to this day."
(Michael Ben-Yair, 3 March 2002)

"We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own." (You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuels, p. 155).

Lebanon PM-designate quits after Hezbollah refuses cabinet offers

Lebanese prime minister-designate Saad al-Hariri said on Thursday he was stepping down after more than 10 weeks of trying to form a unity government with opposition groups including Hezbollah.

His failure has fuelled concern over the potential for another protracted political crisis in Lebanon, where power struggles have brought long periods of government paralysis and violence in recent years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This doesn't bode well for either Lebanon or the region.

Nature abhors a vacuum, and Israel may well see this as the moment to invade again, and capture the Litani River, for the water it so desperately needs.

THE CONTROLLED COLLAPSE OF WTC 7

Take a close look at the manner in which WTC 7 collapses straight down. For the building to collapse in this fashion, all of the load bearing supports would have had to fail at exactly the same time.

The claim that the collapse was the result of a fire requires the fire be equally distributed throughout the entire floor of the building, providing equal heat for an equal amount of time, so that all the load bearings members would fail at the exact same moment.

Do you find this plausible?

Pelosi: Little Support for Sending More U.S. Troops to Afghanistan

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except for the heroin drug lords; they are really amped about the idea!

Conspiracy theory or hidden truth? The 9/11 enigmas...

“WTC 7 was … 100 yards from the North Tower. Even though no airplane hit it, it collapsed rapidly … in the manner of a controlled demolition. Despite its suspicious collapse, the 9/11 Commission report does not even mention WTC 7. “ Gage added: “A free-falling object cannot exert force on anything in its path without slowing its own fall, so the structural support had to be removed by something else—explosives.”

Iran may have enough enriched uranium to build a bomb, US warns

Mr Davies flagged up Western intelligence reports about Tehran’s alleged weapons experiments, which he said was evidence of military ambitions for its nuclear programme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of these allegations is not accidental, and TIMESONLNE appears to be very happily beating the war drums on this.

The US and Israel understand very clearly that Russia and China, in the UN Security Council, will veto any more sanctions; those positions have been made very clear.

We may well be up for an "October Surprise" regarding Iran, once further sanctions are not put in place by the UN.

Metrics of Monstrosity: Free Falling in Afghanistan

By any reckoning of reason, morality -- or even practicality -- it is a monstrous, evil folly. And yet it goes on and on, worsening by the year, by the month -- and with every major player in the ghoulish game declaring that it will keep going on, for years and years, if not decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only folks "winning" in Afghanistan are the defense contractors and the drug lords.

How Many Dead Non-White Civilians Does It Take for the U.S. to Notice? Putting the Kunduz Massacre in Context

For the Pentagon and its many media boosters, there are good bodies (civilians killed by "our enemy") and bad bodies (civilians killed by "our" militaries), respectively in the western mainstream labeled accidental collateral damage and (Afghan civilians transformed by the click on a keyboard into) "militants" or "insurgents." During the Yugoslav conflict, Human Rights Watch highlighted civilians killed by Serbs while neglecting civilians killed by non-Serbs. Today in Afghanistan, the U.S. mainstream media led by the Associated Press describes in detail the civilian victims of "Taliban" suicide attacks often even providing photographs while remaining far more circumspect about the victims of US/NATO air strikes and never printing photographs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: very graphic picture of two dead children at the top of this article.

But imagine, for one moment, these were your kids, just trying to grow up, trying to survive this wretched war against the Afghan people.

What would you be thinking about the people responsible for this slaughter, and this catastrophe in your life?

Obama Youth: Homeland Security Wants To Recruit Girl Scouts

New US spy report verifies Iran stance

American intelligence agencies reached the conclusion in a National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) update they presented to US President Barack Obama in recent months, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

The new intelligence information collected by the Obama administration once again confirmed the original reports’ findings by asserting that there was no convincing evidence to prove Iran’s nuclear work was in any way military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the truth that Iran is not pursuing a weapons program will most likely not be enough to save it from an attack by Israel and the US.

And why? Because Israel, which does have nuclear weapons, but refuses to be a signatory to the NPT, has declared Iran an "existential threat" which has to be neutralized by the US, as was Iraq.

If and when such a conflict ensues, it will be our kids doing the fighting, getting maimed, and dying in service to Israel's foreign policy goals.

What's wrong with this picture?!?

Everything.

District 9,Minstrelsy & Palestine

Everybody loves District 9. Unless you’re Nigerian. Or you think about race. (Not THAT race!) Or you like to piss people off, like reviewer Armond White, of New York Press.

By now everybody knows the plot, and all the reviewers wanna call it an Apartheid Allegory, for obvious reasons: the film is set in South Africa, and was directed by a white South African (are all white South Africans “Afrikaners?”). Many call it a “cautionary tale,” which is bewildering, since Apartheid was *actually* carried out in South Africa and the US.

Caution usually precedes an act.

What nobody is talking about, though, is Palestine.

Netanyahu draws fire in Israel over secret trip

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu drew the wrath of Israel's most influential newspapers on Thursday over what they described as lies issued by his office about a secret flight to Russia.

Netanyahu's first major media fiasco since taking office six months ago began with a simple question many Israelis, using their leader's nickname, asked on Monday: Where's Bibi?

Israel: anti-assimilation ads yanked over uproar

An ad campaign against Jewish assimilation, co-sponsored by the Israeli government, has been yanked after outraging Jews abroad, an official said Wednesday, laying bare the sometimes fraught relations between residents of the Jewish homeland and world Jewry.

Religious leaders, bloggers and editorial writers criticized the campaign as an affront to children of mixed marriages, and Jewish Agency officials said hundreds of people contacted the organization to denounce it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good!

flashback - Rahm Emanuel - Israeli Spy

Clinton reportedly had knowledge of Israeli intelligence penetration of White House communications systems, and Lewinsky, in sworn testimony before the Office of Independent Counsel, stated:

He suspected that a foreign embassy was tapping his telephones, and he proposed cover stories. If ever questioned, she should say that the two of them were just friends. If anyone ever asked about their phone sex, she should say that they knew their calls were being monitored all along, and the phone sex was just a put-on.

It is now known that the 'foreign embassy' was that of Israel. WMR has learned from US intelligence sources that Emanuel was discovered to be part of a political intelligence and blackmail operation directed against Clinton by Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell
you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."

US's 'arc of instability' just gets bigger

The New Great Game is not only focused on the face-off between the United States and strategic competitors Russia and China - with Pipelineistan as a defining element.

The full spectrum dominance doctrine requires the control of the Pentagon-coined "arc of instability" from the Horn of Africa to western China. The cover story is the former "global war on terror", now "overseas contingency operations" under the management of President Barack Obama's administration.

Fire chief shot by cop in Ark. court over tickets

It was just too much, having to return to court twice on the same day to contest yet another traffic ticket, and Fire Chief Don Payne didn't hesitate to tell the judge what he thought of the police and their speed traps.

The response from cops? They shot him. Right there in court.

KABUL-SHIT

The brain disease sweeping the West is virulent and vicious, like the golden Staph which haunts many hospitals. Most at risk are Presidents, Prime Ministers, Generals and journalists. The ailment is not triggered by bacteria but by an ideology as old as history, which every so often resurfaces as a new strain, and this one hasn’t been named. It’s often fatal. Less so to the carriers than those caught in their sights. Let’s call it Kabul-shit – the propensity to ignore the years of violence inflicted on Afghanistan and to paint the invaders as heroes.
