The Anti-Ecology of Money

Yet tertiary goods are available in amounts limited only by the demand. How many bonds can a corporation print? For all practical purposes, as many as people are willing to buy. A good number of the colorful bankruptcies that have enlivened the business pages in recent months, for example, took out firms that mistook a temporary bubble for permanent prosperity, issued bonds far beyond their ability to pay, and crashed and burned when all that debt started to come due. On an even more gargantuan scale, the United States government is currently trying to restart its economy by spending money it doesn’t have, selling bonds to cover the difference, and amassing debt on a scale that makes the most extravagant Third World kleptocracies look like a bunch of pikers.

WAR IS OVER! If you want it

That’s right; the war is over due to the courageous act of one Major Stefan Frederick Cook, United States Army Reserve, who recently challenged an Army order to deploy to Afghanistan on the grounds that they could not lawfully order him to deploy.

Since the Army has only that authority given to it by the President, and, since Obama himself must possess the authority of President in order to delegate it to the Army, Major Cook believes Obama must prove he has such authority before he may lawfully comply with an Army order to deploy.

Britain 'should approach Hamas'

The UK government has come under rising pressure from MPs to start making contact with Palestinian group Hamas.

A Foreign Affairs Committee report also said it was "regrettable" UK-supplied military items were "almost certainly" used by Israel in the Gaza conflict.

The cross-party group, which monitors foreign policy, called on the EU to make relations with Israel conditional on its peace-making efforts.

92 Percent of Canadians Satisified with Health Care

The largest survey on primary health care ever conducted in Canada found that most people have high praise for their family doctor, and a staggering 92 per cent would recommend their physician to a relative or friend.

The study found that 95 per cent of Canadians with chronic health conditions had a regular place of care, either a family doctor, or community health centre.

Care is available 24/7 without any insurance premiums or direct patient fees, whether you are rich, poor, employed, unemployed, young, old or have pre-existing conditions.

Nuclear Israel:A Kosher Calamity

“If Iran develops nuclear capabilities it will start an arms race in the Middle East that would threaten the world”, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Thursday.

Lieberman claimed at the start of his four-day slander-a-thon trip to Argentina that Iran is the “biggest sponsor of world terror organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.”
“If Iran would achieve nuclear capacity, we’ll see a crazy nuclear-armed race in our region that will be a threat not only to Israel but to the rest of the world,” he bluntly told reporters.

The irony in Mr.Lieberman’s contention is almost laughable to anyone with an iota of knowledge in respect to what nuclear weapons Israel has and how much aid the United States of America delivers to Israel,casually – and on a yearly basis.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Another New Study Challenges Climate Change ‘Orthodoxy’

De Freitas, based at Auckland University’s School of Geography and Environmental Science and with 30 years of climate science under his belt, does not deny that atmospheric CO2 concentration is rising, but questions the effect that that is having, and in particular whether it is dangerous.

He said the climate debate has been “degraded” by politics, ignorance, “end is nigh” alarmist hype, and the argument that the science has been settled.

The notion of “consensus” is unscientific, he added. “Science is meant to be robust debate.”

John Holdren, Obama's Science Czar, says: Forced abortions and mass sterilization needed to save the planet

Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens.

The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?

These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- informally known as the United States' Science Czar. In a book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:

Obama Administration Begins Opposition To States Claiming Sovereignty And Gun Rights

I believe the Supreme Court but I know not how long this may take. In the meantime, the Obama administration, made up of mostly anti-gun people, are grasping to gain control over your right to keep and bear arms. From the day Obama was elected, the people rushed to stores buying up guns and ammunition at unprecedented rates. With the combination of a new president and staff known to want to ban gun and gun sales and the District of Columbia vs. Heller ruling, it has helped spur more laws to relax gun restrictions. This, I am positive, angers the Obama administration.

Documentary sparks uproar at Jewish film fest

The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival has come under siege after deciding to show a documentary about Rachel Corrie, a Washington state 23-year-old killed in 2003 while trying to prevent an Israeli military bulldozer from demolishing a Palestinian's home.

Whether Corrie naively put herself in harm's way in support of terrorists or was intentionally killed by the Israeli military is the nexus of the controversy.

Accused Israel spy hints at FBI anti-Semitism in AIPAC probe

He was arrested, subjected to humiliating interrogations, accused of spying for Israel, lived under the specter of a 13-year prison term and sold everything he owned to pay for his legal defense. But Lawrence Franklin, 63, a former senior officer in the U.S. Air Force, an intelligence expert, university professor and senior official in the U.S. administration, did not crack. A devout Catholic, he accepted his bitter fate submissively and saw it as a test from heaven, as a means of achieving salvation. This is not just rhetoric. In order to support his family - his disabled wife and their five children - Franklin took a job cleaning restrooms at a West Virginia church, washed the floors in the local Roy Rogers restaurant and even dug cesspools.

Palestinians ask Canada to seize Dead Sea Scrolls

The problem for Palestinian Authority officials, who contacted ROM executives in April, is that the exhibition contains artefacts illegally acquired by Israel when it annexed East Jerusalem in the 1967 war.

The PA’s archaeological department said it was important for Canadian institutions to be responsible and act in accordance with their country’s obligations.

“I’m not saying those scrolls are not Jewish and Christian in nature,” said Issam al Ahmed, the executive director of Palestine House, an educational and cultural organisation in the Toronto area. “But they were discovered prior to the Israeli occupation and they were exhibited in the Rockefeller Museum in East Jerusalem in Palestine.”

I Just Want to be a Useful Tool.

I’m a tool and people have used me. You are a tool, so you know what I am talking about. People have used you too. Sometimes people have used me in the right way and sometimes they used me wrong. I knew that right away because that is not my purpose so I rebelled against my owner. I didn’t turn myself upon him but I refused to be put to a use for which I was not intended. This made me a bad tool. I don’t understand. I may not be a good tool entirely but I am a useful tool. I really do want to be useful even more than I want to be good because good and bad are often theater actors and they switch roles. For me, being a tool, goes beyond being good and evil.

Israel giving key Jerusalem site to settlers - activists

Israel has handed control over much of a key Palestinian area in annexed East Jerusalem to hardline settler groups in a creeping takeover kept away from public scrutiny, a report by an activist group said on Thursday

"It was done in the dark, in flagrant violation of the rules of good government and in some cases in violation of the law, without open and official decisions by the government or Knesset and without public discussion, inquiry or scrutiny," said the report entitled "Shady Dealings in Silwan". Elad is dedicated to expanding Jewish ownership in Arab areas of East Jerusalem, which Israel captured from Jordan in 1967 and annexed in a move not recognised by the international community.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And it is apparent that the Obama administration is totally impotent to do anything about this.

President Obama, it would really make sense to stop writing those checks, chock full of taxpayer dollars, to Israel: it is the only leverage you have right now.

However, you had your spokesperson assure Israel that there will be absolutely no consequences for it while it continues to spit in your face and tell you it's raining on the illegal settlement issue.

Mr. President; WHY?!?!?!?

Free Gaza needs your help to prepare next mission to Gaza

Due to Israel's hijacking of our boat, the Spirit of Humanity last month, we have had to change our plans. No, we are not backing down. Now, more than ever, we believe it's critical to continue these missions, and demonstrate the power of the international civilian community to stand up to cruelty, human rights abuses, and oppression. If we let Israel's attack on our last mission stop us, we will be giving in to the violence that is perpetrated 100-fold against the occupied Palestinian people. The risks that we take by getting on these boats are nothing compared to the existential threats that Palestinians face every day of their lives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These people's heroic, humanitarian missions to Gaza come at enormous risk.

Let us make sure that the Israeli government knows precisely that any attempt to arrest, hurt, or menace these people comes at a high catastrophic PR blunder cost, and in this context, Israel cannot possibly present itself as the victim here.

The Free Gaza Movement deserves any and all support and public attention possible for their work.

Two Police States, No Solution

What remains of Palestinian civil rights is rapidly being eroded by the dictorial Palestinian governments that respectively control the divided Palestinian territories.

Palestinian civilians are paying the price as the Islamic resistance movement Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, and the Fatah-affiliated and western- back Palestinian Authority (PA), which rules the West Bank, continue to target their political opponents as part of their bitter power struggle.

"The abuse of Palestinian civilians by both Fatah and Hamas security forces has become systematic and is no longer the exception to the rule," Latifah told IPS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Hamas, Fatah, and the Palestinian people; unless and until there is a full, complete, and unequivocal reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah, the dream of a viable Palestinian state is dead.

Is that what you really want?

Because unless and until you are able to talk logically to the Israeli government with one voice, and have that power which unity in purpose brings, you will never get to the point will Israel will be willing to truly negotiate in a way which guarantees the establishment of a Palestinian state.

More troops will die in Afghanistan, says Joe Biden

More British and American troops will die in Afghanistan, but the war against the Taliban is in the national interests of both countries, the US vice-president, Joe Biden, said today.

Speaking in the deadliest month for British troops since the US-led invasion in 2001, Biden insisted that the current offensive against the Taliban in Helmand province was worth the effort and was a "prerequisite" to get the country ready for presidential elections next month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to VP Biden: stop lying to the American people, and to the long-suffering Afghans.

The purpose of this war of aggression is two-fold; to "pacify" the Afghan people so that the pipelines can be installed, and to protect the opium crops.

And before anyone starts screaming about how dare I suggest that our kids are dying to protect the drugs and drug dealers, consider this.

As reported in:

http://www.alternet.org/drugreporter/140183/drug_eradication_in_afghan...
icer/

"Officials in President Barack Obama's administration say they want to emphasize alternative crops and avoid aggressive eradication operations that could alienate Afghans."

Please remember that when the Taliban were in control before the American and NATO invasion, opium farming had been almost completely wiped out.

As reported in:

http://www.commondreams.org/headlines01/1115-06.htm

"In the book ''Bin Laden, la verite interdite'' (''Bin Laden, the forbidden truth''), that appeared in Paris on Wednesday, the authors, Jean-Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquie, reveal that the Federal Bureau of Investigation's deputy director John O'Neill resigned in July in protest over the obstruction. "

"They affirm that until August, the U.S. government saw the Taliban regime ''as a source of stability in Central Asia that would enable the construction of an oil pipeline across Central Asia'', from the rich oilfields in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, through Afghanistan and Pakistan, to the Indian Ocean. "

But, confronted with Taliban's refusal to accept U.S. conditions, ''this rationale of energy security changed into a military one'', the authors claim."

Remember what we were getting force-fed on all the corporate news feeds in August, 2001?!?!

Gary Condit and Chandra Levy, 24/7, while the US government was planning the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

Apparently, the price to be paid in blood and money to pursue this military misadventure was considered a "bargain" by the Bush administration, relative to what the Taliban were asking for the pipeline rights.

Tell that to the parents, wives, or children of our soldiers who continue to come home, dead, in metal boxes, or catastrophically physically and/or mentally damaged in ways from which they will never recover.

US prepares major terrorism readiness exercise

Law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the United States and abroad are preparing to go on high alert as part of a massive terrorism prevention exercise -- the first of its kind here.

The National Level Exercise 2009 "will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery," the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is simply for domestic consumption, to demonstrate to We the People that we shouldn't get "uppity" if there are any National issues which concern us, because there will be hell to pay.

And that bit about "terrorism prevention"?!?! There's a really simple answer to that; if the US stops mucking about in other countries, there will be no reason for any of those people to get upset with the US!

Of course, that would be logical.

Agent Orange linked to heart disease, Parkinson's

Medical researchers say there may be a link between exposure to the defoliant Agent Orange and other herbicides used during the Vietnam War and an increased chance of developing serious heart problems and Parkinson's disease.

The Institute of Medicine, a division of the National Academy of Sciences, is mandated by Congress to review every two years evidence about the effects of Agent Orange exposure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, terrific; this study is being mandated by congress.

But when is the US going to actually take responsibility for what this lethal chemical has done to not only the Vietnamese people, but our Vets?!?

Never.

As reported in:

http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2008/02/23/7252

"Vietnamese victims of wartime "agent orange" were disappointed by a U.S. court's dismissal of a lawsuit against chemical companies but believe they have gathered more support for their cause, an official said on Saturday"

"Friday's ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York concluded the plaintiffs could not pursue claims against Dow Chemical Co, Monsanto Co and nearly 30 other companies."

"The United States has maintained there is no scientifically proved link between the wartime spraying and the claims of dioxin poisoning by more than 3 million people in Vietnam."

Water, Water Everywhere, and Not a Drop to Drink in Iraq

The stench of human waste is enough to tell Falah abu Hasan that his drinking water is bad. His infant daughter Fatma’s continuous illnesses and his own constant nausea confirm it.

Everybody complains about the water in Baghdad, and few are willing to risk drinking it from the tap. Six years after the U.S. invaded Iraq, 36 percent of Baghdad’s drinking water is unsafe, according to the Iraqi Environment Ministry — in a good month. In a bad month, it’s 90 percent. Cholera broke out last summer, and officials fear another outbreak this year....

Israel Warns Gaza Reconstruction Aid Might Help Hamas

Six months after the end of the Israeli invasion, the Gaza Strip remains in ruins, with the billions of dollars pledged for its reconstruction largely unused in the face of a restrictive Israeli blockade. Today, the Israeli Defense Ministry is distributing a document warning that it thinks Hamas would probably end up with a measure of control over the funds.

Commander: Reservist Deployments Won’t Slow Down Any Time Soon

For those hoping that promises by the Obama Administration of an eventual Iraq drawdown and this week’s announcement that active duty personnel in the Army would increase by 22,000 would improve the deployment schedule of reservists, Army Reserve Commander Lieutenant General Jack Stultz has a message: don’t get your hopes up.

“I want to be more realistic with them. I don’t predict a drop in our op-tempo,” Lt. Gen. Stultz said in an interview published today in Stars and Stripes. He said the goal was for the average reservist to spend four years home for each year deployed overseas, but reaching that goal “could take five years.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: reservist's active duty commitments are increasing, not decreasing under this administration's watch.

US Senate votes to interfere in Iran affairs

In another sign of interference in the internal affairs of Iran, the US Senate has ratified a plan to curb what it calls "censorship" in the Islamic Republic.

According to the legislation, the US government will spend $30 million to expand activities of Radio Free Europe's Persian-language radio broadcasts into Iran.

Washington will also take measures to counter Tehran's "efforts to block, censor, or monitor the Internet in Iran" with another $20 million, the ratification said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

50 million of our taxpayer dollars, while homeless Vets are sleeping in our streets?!?

Memo to the Senate, because you have all obviously forgotten: your job is taking care of the American people, first, second, and third, period, end of discussion.

Israel has failed to take adequate measures against human rights abuses of women who have been brought here and forced to provide sexual services, Amnesty International charged.

"This is so," a special Amnesty report on the trafficking of women from the former Soviet Union said, "even though many of them have been subjected to human rights abuses such as enslavement or torture, including rape and other forms of sexual abuse, by traffickers, pimps, or others involved in Israel's sex industry."

Amnesty International also criticized Israel for not providing a procedure to grant asylum to women who have been smuggled into the country often on the basis of false promises of work having nothing to do with sex.

Iran: If Israel attacks us, we'll hit its nuclear sites

The leader of Iran's Revolutionary Guards said on Saturday that Iran would strike Israel's nuclear facilities if Israel attacked it, state television reported.

"If the Zionist regime attacks Iran, we will surely strike its nuclear facilities with our missile capabilities," Mohammad Ali Jafari, Guards commander-in-chief, told Iran's Arabic language al-Alam television.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that Ali Jarfari is not at all talking about a pre-emptive strike, but a retaliatory strike, should Israel attack them.

One would hope that some adults in the room in Tel Aviv will think very seriously about the consequences of such an attack against Iran, geopolitically.

Russia's heads of state have mentioned that such an attack would bring on World War III.

The Great Tax Con Job

A very small niche of America's uber-wealthy have pulled off what may well be the biggest con job in the history of our republic, and they did it in a startlingly brief 30 or so years. True, they spent over three billion dollars to make it happen, but the reward to them was in the hundreds of billions - and will continue to be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an example of the false dichotomy of arguing over whether the rich or poor should pay more taxes.

We are ALL paying too much in taxes, period.

The lion's share of that money goes to build things that kill people, or payments on the vast debts created to enslave you to the Federal Reserve. any services you receive are paid for by the dregs not yet claimed by one or the other sharpster (like the global warming cult).

Bernanke: About 25 mega-firms are systemically significant

The White House proposal would establish a process to resolve large insolvent systemically significant financial institutions in a way that their collapse does not cause collateral damage to the financial markets.

The goal would be to pay off counterparties of an insolvent institution to deter any such damage arising in the markets. The proposal said the mechanism would be modeled after the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s approach to dismantling insolvent smaller banks, but it would be for larger systemically significant financial institutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the last financial bailout, money was given to those institutions in which congress members were heavily invested, so that it wouldn't result in severe financial losses for those congress members.

And I would like to remind Bernake of one thing: ultimately, those bailouts are borne by the taxpayers, not the Fed. And We the People have had enough.

If these interconnected companies cannot remain solvent on their own, they should be allowed to fail, as should any other institution.

Small business owners have to make decisions every day about how to survive and stay afloat until things get better. One of those decisions is not spending more money than you have, and not wracking up huge amounts of debt.

Unfortunately, the hubris of larger companies making bad business decisions appears to know no bounds, secure in the belief that the Fed, from henceforward, will not let them fall.

Pelosi: $350,000 Is the New Middle Class

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is doing some magic math to make the budget numbers work for the proposed health care reform plan.

She now calls income of $350,000 "middle class."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ms. Pelosi seems to feel that a person's class is determined by their money. Pelosi typifies the American system of values in which our finest restaurants will seat mafia dons and CIA drug lords in their Armani jackets but would refuse a table to Gandhi and Mother Theresa because they don't meet the dress code.

Pelosi may be worth a half billion, but from where I stand she is about as low a class human being as can be found on the planet.

Biden Says Weakened Russia Will Bend to U.S.

Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview that Russia's economy is "withering," and suggested the trend will force the country to make accommodations to the West on a wide range of national-security issues, including loosening its grip on former Soviet republics and shrinking its vast nuclear arsenal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is it humanly possible for this man to open his mouth, and not be simultaneously tap dancing on his tonsils at warp speed?!?!?

All I can think about is the old song's opening line, "Don't know much about history..."

These comments betray an absolute, stunning ignorance of the great nationalistic sense of pride which is very much part and parcel of the Russian psyche.

Biden couldn't have been more counterproductive with these statements than if he had tried to be.

Or perhaps, one has to wonder, is rapprochement and a good working relationship with Russia really on the American agenda?

JFK and the Unspeakable

The subtitle sums up Douglass's purpose: Why He Died and Why it Matters. In his beautifully written and exhaustively researched treatment, Douglass lays out the "motive" for Kennedy's assassination. Simply, he traces a process of steady conversion by Kennedy from his origins as a traditional Cold Warrior to his determination to pull the world back from the edge of destruction.

A lot more people were able to vote and that sort of thing. The country was becoming wealthier and more people could participate and a lot of new immigrants were coming in, and so on.

Crisis of Faith

Wherever Rabbi Saul Kassin expected to be yesterday, it probably wasn’t in a federal booking room in Newark, New Jersey. Whether at his home in Gravesend, Brooklyn, or at his son’s palatial summer estate in Deal, New Jersey, Kassin was likely scheduled to spend the day receiving visitors, eating, and praying; instead, he wound up facing an array of money-laundering charges with some of his fellow rabbis and a clutch of local politicians nabbed in one of the biggest, and broadest, corruption cases ever.

Cheney pressed Bush to test Constitutional limits by using military force on US soil

According to a story in Friday’s New York Times, Vice-President Cheney advocated in 2002 for the Bush administration to send military troops to Buffalo to arrest the so-called Lackawanna Six as enemy combatants.

This would have violated both Fourth Amendment guarantees against search and seizure without probable cause and the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which makes it illegal to use the military for law enforcement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

John Yoo will be remembered as a person who did not believe in upholding and defending the Constitution, but rather torturing the Constitution and Bill of Rights into whatever malleable formats his masters in the white house wanted.

He shall be remembered as one of the most amoral and reprehensible characters to have ever worked in the Justice department.

US stops giving militant death tolls in Afghanistan

The US military in Afghanistan has stopped releasing figures showing how many militants have been killed in fighting with US-led forces, officials said Friday.

Smith, who is revamping communications for the US military and the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, stressed US-led military operations were not aimed at killing insurgents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember the "body count" days of the Vietnam War?

That was strictly for US domestic consumption, to assure the TV viewers that the huge human cost and tax burden to pursue that war was somehow justified.

And to make the statement that "..US-led military operations were not aimed at killing insurgents."?!?

I would like to remind Navy Rear Admiral Smith that the Afghans are not stupid. They know when their sons, daughters, mothers, and sisters and dads have been blown to smithereens to perhaps target one guy by a drone that someone was the target of that bombing.

The only thing further aerial bombardment of civilian populations is to further radicalize the Afghan people away from both the US and their government. In fact, Karzai's government is collectively believed to be so crooked they have to screw their socks on in the morning.

Don’t bank on a good deal when you retire

Hundreds of thousands of pensioners are being prevented from getting the best return from their investments by life insurers who are letting them down at retirement, advisers claim.

Some of Britain’s biggest pension companies seem to be using every obstacle they can to prevent savers from getting a good deal, while in other cases simple incompetence is to blame.

The damaging consequences could have repercussions for decades to come. For hundreds of thousands of people retiring every year, choosing how to use their pension pot is one of the biggest financial decisions they will make — one that will affect their standard of living for up to 20 years or more.

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.

UK GDP falls faster than expected

The chancellor's forecasts for economic growth were blown out of the water official figures revealed Britain's economy contracted by a record 5.6% over the last year as output fell for a fifth straight quarter.

Dashing hopes that the steepest decline in growth since the 1930s might be nearing an end, the Office for National Statistics said gross domestic product – the total value of goods and services in the economy – fell by 0.8% in the three months to June. The size of the drop surprised the City, which had expected only a 0.3% decline following recent signs of a pickup in the housing market and strong growth in high street spending.

Healthcare Is a Good, Not a Right

Political philosopher Richard Weaver famously and correctly stated that ideas have consequences. Take for example ideas about rights versus goods. Natural law states that people have rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A good is something you work for and earn. It might be a need, like food, but more “goods” seem to be becoming “rights” in our culture, and this has troubling consequences. It might seem harmless enough to decide that people have a right to things like education, employment, housing or healthcare. But if we look a little further into the consequences, we can see that the workings of the community and economy are thrown wildly off balance when people accept those ideas.

And got a ride for the next four years afterwards too. Just like you and me. And every time on election day all the little mice used to go to the ballot box and they used to elect a government. A government made up of big, fat, black cats.

U.S. admits it has no case against teen held at Guantanamo

The Justice Department conceded Friday that it lacks the evidence to hold a teenage Guantanamo detainee as an enemy combatant after a federal judge last week ruled that his confession was inadmissible.

n a hearing last week, U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle ruled that Mohammed Jawad's confession to Afghan officials was inadmissible because it had been extracted through torture. She also questioned whether the Justice Department had any evidence to proceed with a trial to determine whether he can be held as an enemy combatant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to be one of those guys who will probably be condemned to indefinite detention, just due to embarrassment on the part of a government who called him guilty because of a confession coerced through torture.

No admission of of wrongdoing by this government, and this guy has done nothing wrong, but his backside will be a slammer somewhere for the rest of his life.

How American is this process of "justice"?!?

Musician angry after BPI forces YouTube to pull his video

YouTube takedown drama is back this week, thanks to British musician Calvin Harris and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). The organization, which represents the recording industry in the UK, apparently had one of Harris' music videos removed from YouTube due to a copyright claim. The problem, however, was that the video was created and posted by Harris himself.

After his discovery that the video was missing, Harris had many colorful words for BPI in his Twitter stream (hat tip to The Music Magazine). "The BPI are the worst organisation to ever walk the earth and their setup is shambolic," Harris wrote in one tweet. "There are videos up there that other people have uploaded of the same song, and they haven't been removed!? But mine does!"

Christian Right Crusades for Israel

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, trying to garner support against the pressures of the Obama administration, spoke to the group on Wednesday via satellite after a conversation earlier in the day with leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

He told the Christians for Israel, "For centuries, the relationship between Christians and Jews was marked by conflict rather than partnership and friendship. But this is changing…. Today millions of Christians stand with Israel because they stand for freedom; millions of Christians stand with Israel because they stand for truth; and millions of Christians stand with Israel because they want to see a genuine peace in the Holy Land.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Freedom"?!?!? "Truth"?!?!? I don't know what country about which Netanyahu is waxing poetic, but it is definitely not Israel.

And if Christian Zionists really knew what most Israelis thought about them, they would be shocked and chagrined.

The phrase by which Christians rooting for Israel, right or wrong, might be characterized by Israelis would probably be, at its kindest, "useful idiots".

Israel rejects French calls to freeze settlements

The Israeli government has rejected France's demand to halt Jewish settlement activity and to reopen border crossings into the impoverished Gaza Strip.

On Thursday, France summoned the Israeli ambassador to France, Daniel Shek, to demand an immediate freeze on settlement activities and for the crossings into Gaza to be reopened to allow Gaza rebuild itself after Israel's deadly war in January.

The settlements are built on the land Israel occupied in the 1967 Middle East war and are in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which says the occupying power is not allowed to transfer citizens from its own territory to the occupied territory.

All U.S. children should get seasonal flu shot: CDC

All U.S. children aged 6 months to 18 years should get a seasonal influenza vaccine every year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at:

http://www.prisonplanet.com/squalene-the-swine-flu-vaccine%E2%80%99s-d...

"The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines."

The adjuvant? Squalene."

The negative effects of squalene have been noted since 1987 in terms of causing severe autoimmune diseases.

As reported here:

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=13925

"Squalene "contributed to the cascade of reactions called "Gulf War syndrome. (GIs developed) arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Raynaud's phenomenon, Sjorgren's syndrome, chronic diarrhea, night sweats and low-grade fever."

"Matsumoto's book includes numerous case studies of GIs afflicted with one or more of the above syndromes, their devastating effects, and the outlandish US government reaction - failing to acknowledge their existence or a connection between them and administered vaccines. Also denying the effects of other toxic Gulf theater exposures (like depleted uranium) as well as withholding meaningful treatments or protocols."

US: We will not use sanctions against Israel

The US state department stressed on Friday that President Obama is not at all considering to impose economic sanctions on Israel when it fails to comply with US demands to end construction in settlements. The US is also not willing to consider mounting international pressure on Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter how many times Netanyahu's government spits in Obama's face and tells him it's raining on the settlement issue, Obama will not use the one weapon he could potentially use for some leverage: US aid, both financial and military, to Israel.

By having that statement made by a State Department Official, Obama has just conceded that no matter what Israel does to the Palestinians (murder, siege, burning their crops, or evicting them and building illegal settlements where Palestinians used to live), he is catastrophically impotent when it comes to being an honest broker for peace.

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?

CRIMINAL RABBIS

With rabbis being carted off to jail for taking part in criminal activities, including money laundering and organ harvesting and sales, the American Jewish community is facing a crisis.

Who will conduct their marriages?
Who will teach their sons the Bar Mitzvah prayers?
Who will officiate at their funerals?
These are real problems. How could the so called religious leaders of these people abandon their flock?

Last year it was the kosher food industry that was in jeopardy due to unethical practices taking place in their largest slaughterhouse. What’s wrong with these people?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All social systems inherit the morality of the people at the top.

The Case of the ‘Fatwa’ to Rig Iran’s Election

So, accusations that the U.S. is interfering in Iran are true. But acknowledging that would be strategically unwise. “Our effort” – and by “our” Zakaria presumably includes journalists like himself – should not be to report the truth (drawing the obvious corollary), but to work to discredit anyone who observes that the long arm of the U.S. has certainly not been withdrawn from Iranian affairs.

IN GAZA ~~ MOURNING THROUGH ART

From the entrance of the house, one can observe the whole tragedy. On 6 January 2009, an Israeli artillery shell landed in the front yard of the Deeb family home in the Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza strip. A large, wide hole in the ground and two missing walls are all that remain. Sitting in his wheelchair in the corner, Ziad, 22, is the last survivor of the Deeb family. He lost both legs during the attack, and 10 relatives were killed including his father, grandmother, brothers, nieces and nephews.

FEMA to Conduct Massive NLE 09 Martial Law Exercise Next Week

Earlier this week, the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate met with several state governors to discuss “emergency preparedness,” according to a press release posted on FEMA’s website. “FEMA is committed to protecting and assisting our states and citizens during disasters,” said Fugate. “By working together and strengthening relationships at the state level, we can continue to build the national emergency response team which includes FEMA, as well as state, local, tribal and federal partners, the private sector and faith-based organizations. The work we are putting in now to build this team will go a long way during the next disaster.”

Preparations are now underway for FEMA’s NLE 09.

52 percent of U.S. soldiers wounded in Iraq, Afghanistan diagnosed with TBI

Some 52 percent of soldiers severely injured in Iraq and Afghanistan who have come to the U.S. Army's largest hospital for treatment have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), an internal study has found.

The U.S. Department of Defense began conducting cognitive ability tests on all military personnel to be deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan in November 2007. The servicemen and women who took the tests began returning from their combat tours early this year, allowing for greater chances of discovering a TBI and probably leading to the increased numbers of diagnosed cases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These tests were only started two years ago?!?

I want every one of our returning Vets, experiencing physical and/or mental problems as a result of combat, to get precisely the same level of first-class care care our congress members get for life.

Our Vets deserve this; I can't really say with any enthusiasm that our congress members actually do.

The Reality of Israel’s ‘Open’ Jerusalem

"Our policy is that Jerusalem residents can purchase apartments anywhere in the city," he said. "There is no ban on Arabs buying apartments in the west of the city, and there is no ban on Jews building or buying in the city’s east."

According to experts, however, the reality is that in both a practical and legal sense Mr Netanyahu’s "open city" is a fiction, extended only to the settlers and not to Mrs Khurd or to the 250,000 other Palestinians of East Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu believes if he tells the "big lie" about an allegedly "open Jerusalem" long enough, the world will actually believe him.

Thinking people, looking at the situation on the ground, however, know better.

The War on Terror is a Zionist racket

The Americans were responsible for creation of a gangster state headed by an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders,” – Sir John Troutbeck wrote in his letter to the foreign secretary, Ernest Bevin on June 2, 1948.

“Of course the people don’t want war….but after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether, it’s a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a parliament or a Communist dictatorship,” – Dr. Herman Georing, Hitler’s propaganda minister.

The former British Minister of Environment, Michael Meacher, in his article titled The war on terrorism is bogus (Guardian, September 6, 2003) – wrote that the 9/11 attacks gave the US an ideal pretext to use force to secure its world domination.

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.

12,000 U.S. Children To Be Swine Flu Vaccine Guinea Pigs

Around 12,000 U.S. children will be used as guinea pigs for an experimental swine flu vaccine known to contain the dangerous ingredient squalene, which has been directly linked with cases of Gulf War Syndrome and a host of other debilitating diseases.

According to a report in the Oklahoman, 12,000 children nationwide will partake in “fast-tracked studies” to test the side-effects of the untested swine flu vaccine in trials set to begin next month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And just how did you get these kids permission to shoot them full of an untested vaccine?

Israel envoy to France summoned over outposts

France summoned the Israeli ambassador in Paris on Thursday to demand an immediate halt to Jewish settlement building in east Jerusalem, and the re-opening of border crossings into the Gaza Strip.

The French foreign ministry's head of political affairs Gerard Araud made the demands during a meeting with the Israeli envoy, Daniel Shek, said ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier.

Araud stressed that Paris wants "an immediate freeze on settlement activities, including in east Jerusalem," the spokesman said.

Bankrupt US parts maker Delphi dumps pension obligations

The move, announced Wednesday, is the latest in the Obama administration’s restructuring of the auto industry. It clears the path for “the new GM” to absorb some profitable parts of Delphi, while shifting the pension obligations owed to roughly 70,000 retirees onto the PBGC. Hourly retirees will likely see a significant reduction in their pension checks. Salaried retirees confront massive reductions.

Over the past decade, Delphi has encouraged its employees to take early retirement. Now, many of these retired workers will lose between a third and a half of their monthly pension payments.
