Nuclear War Between Koreas: Brought To You By The U.S. Government

As we have documented, North Korea’s nuclear belligerency was almost exclusively a creation of the U.S. government in that they armed the Stalinist state both directly and indirectly through global arms dealers under their control, namely Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan. While labeling North Korea as part of the “axis of evil,” the U.S. government was enthusiastically funding its nuclear weapons program at every stage.

Both the Clinton and Bush administrations played a key role in helping Kim Jong-Il develop North Korea’s nuclear prowess from the mid 1990’s onwards.

Just as with Saddam Hussein’s chemical and biological weapons program, it was Donald Rumsfeld who played a key role in arming Kim-Jong-Il.

Turkey Rejects Israeli Deal on Gaza Flotilla

Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday that Israel tried to prevent naval conflict between its occupation forces and peace activists sailing to Gaza by propositioning a number of states to transfer humanitarian aid equipment through its territory instead, but Turkey objected.

Oil inspectors let companies fill in own audits, while one admitted getting high on meth, report says

The agency in charge of overseeing the United States' oil reserves was plagued with gross mismanagement that in at least one case allowed the companies being inspected to fill in their own audit reports, an Inspector General's report will reportedly reveal this week.

Regulators overseeing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico reportedly allowed oil company officials to fill in their own inspection reports. According to the internal probe being released this week, oil officials sketched out their answers in pencil and turned them over to federal oversight officials, who then traced their answers in pen.

Father and Son killed in West Memphis

Jerry Kane and his beautiful son Joe (age 16) were shot to death during an alleged traffic stop by law enforcement on Thursday, May 20th, 2010. Jerry, Joe and their two dogs, while on their way back to their home in Florida have been made out to be everything from drug smugglers to hispanics, which we all know is typical of the media spinners. The police said it was a traffic stop. But their van had more bullet holes in it than Bonnie and Clyde's.

Jerry and Donna Lee were just married three months ago. Jerry spoke of ending his travelling to give classes and seminars accross the country and was looking forward to staying close to home and enjoying his new life in Florida. They were happy.

25 Questions To Ask Anyone Who Is Delusional Enough To Believe That This Economic Recovery Is Real

If you listen to the mainstream media long enough, you just might be tempted to believe that the United States has emerged from the recession and is now in the middle of a full-fledged economic recovery.

But is that really the case? Of course not. You would have to be delusional to believe that. What did happen was that all of the stimulus packages and government spending and new debt that Obama and the U.S. Congress pumped into the economy bought us a little bit of time. But they have also made our long-term economic problems far worse. The reality is that the U.S. cannot keep supporting an economy on an ocean of red ink forever. At some point the charade is going to come crashing down.

Spain must make wide ranging reforms, weak recovery-IMF

Spain must make far reaching, comprehensive reforms, including to the labour market, while its economic recovery remains fragile, The International Monetary Fund said on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In every monetary system where a private central bank issues the public currency at interest, there can never be a recovery because debt always outstrips the money supply. What the IMF is saying is what bankers have said throughout history; "You must make do with less so that we may have more. You must make do with less so that we may have more. You must make do with less so that we may have more."

A Right-Wing Zionist Threat: Vandals Strike Tikkun Editor’s Home

It’s heartening to hear some empathetic voices after weathering the days of hate mail that followed Tikkun’s decision to present an award to Judge Goldstone for standing up for human rights in Israel/Palestine.

Sometime late last night or in the wee hours of the morning, vandals glued threatening posters to Rabbi Lerner’s door and around his home. Some posters attacked Lerner personally; others targeted liberals and progressives more generally, accusing them of supporting terrorism and “Islamo-fascism.” Here’s an excerpt from the statement that he and his assistant Will Pasley sent out via email this afternoon:

Crazy: Some in CIA wanted to create fake Saddam Hussein sex video, report asserts

Stein notes, however, that the CIA did make a video in which a fake Osama Bin Laden enjoys a campfire and the company of his associates while bragging about their juvenile paramours.

The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory. The actors were drawn from “some of us darker-skinned employees,” he said.

CIA unit's wacky idea: Depict Saddam as gay

During planning for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the CIA's Iraq Operations Group kicked around a number of ideas for discrediting Saddam Hussein in the eyes of his people.

One was to create a video purporting to show the Iraqi dictator having sex with a teenage boy, according to two former CIA officials familiar with the project.

“It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera,” said one of the former officials. “Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session.”

"NORTH KOREA NORTH KOREA NORTH KOREA!!!!!!" -- Official White Horse Souse

(Ahem)

All kidding aside; if this is the big correction we have all known is coming, then the one and only political banner that Wall Street and Washington DC were able to wave at us all to convince us that our hardships were all our own fault may be falling. Americans will soon confront the reality that the Federal Government and its reckless policies catering to Wall Street ARE the problem.

As I type this, Obama is on TV calling for a new small business support program, which means more taxes collected by the government. And that right there is the real cause of the problem. Government not does not produce anything, Indeed government is an excuse for consuming without producing. Like an arcane priesthood the government survives on the faith of the people that the government actually accomplishes something useful. But just as religion, which purported to represent the will of a divine omnipotent being, has been exposed as a haven of opportunists willing to say anything to get money from you and then screw you in the sphincter, so too government stands exposed as a haven of opportunists willing to say anything to get money from you and then screw you in the sphincter.

I can see it in Obama's face as he tries to cheer his audience up about the future. Obama knows the American people see the Federal Government for what it has become; a fascist dictatorship robbing the poor to give to the rich. Obama knows the American people know the existing wars were started with lies and the push for wars with North Korea and Iran are equally mendacious. Obama knows the American people see the collapsed mine and sunken oil platform as complete failures of the Federal Government to care for America, while at the same time looting America to take care of Israel. Obama knows the American people, absent some major distraction like dropping a nuke on Hawaii and blaming North Korea for it, are about to turn on the government the way that Iceland, Greece, etc. etc. etc. turned on theirs. And Obama knows the American people will never sit still for the government opening fire on its own to keep the slaves in their cribs.

Obama’s Model ‘Green’ Country? Denmark Evicts Citizens, Clear-Cuts Forests for Windmill Space

President Obama was caught flatfooted by the embarrassing truth about Spain’s “green economy” after he instructed us — on eight separate occasions — to “think about what’s happening in countries like Spain” as a model for a U.S. future. Spain, of course, is suffering an economic meltdown from enormous public debt incurred through programs like a mandated “green economy.”

But Obama also just implored Spain to drastically scale back or risk becoming Greece. A flip he immediately flopped, by pushing hard to enact the Kerry-Lieberman “path to insolvency” bill based on … Spain. (Cue Benny Hill theme.)

So, embarrassed — or perhaps shameless — Obama changed his pitch: “Think about what’s happening in countries like Denmark.”

A strategy of liberation requires emancipation

After almost one century of Zionist terrorism in Palestine, the world is gradually waking up to this racist and destructive ideology.
Contributing to the heroic Palestinian Resistance, this growing awareness will incidentally precipitate the abolition of the Zionist ideology and its hideous manifestation, just like slavery or Nazism were abolished.
The Palestinian Resistance and its allies represent an exemplary model of diversity and cooperation across borders, race, age, economic circumstances, religion or nationality.
In essence, the Palestinian Resistance is a model of inclusion, the radical contrary of the exclusivist Zionist ideology.

Clear Thinking About the Minimum Wage

This is most harmful to the least skilled of workers, the ones we want to help most. They will be the first to be fired, and will be cut off from the chance to gain the work experience and job skills needed to earn a legal wage. Allowing such people to work for lower than minimum wages gives them a chance to work their way to a better life. To deny them the freedom to negotiate their own wages and to leave them legally prohibited from working is a moral outrage.

Climate Fears Turn to Doubts Among Britons

Last month hundreds of environmental activists crammed into an auditorium here to ponder an anguished question: If the scientific consensus on climate change has not changed, why have so many people turned away from the idea that human activity is warming the planet?

Nowhere has this shift in public opinion been more striking than in Britain, where climate change was until this year such a popular priority that in 2008 Parliament enshrined targets for emissions cuts as national law. But since then, the country has evolved into a home base for a thriving group of climate skeptics who have dominated news reports in recent months, apparently convincing many that the threat of warming is vastly exaggerated.

North Korea puts military on alert: report

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has reportedly ordered his military to be on combat alert as tensions rise sharply on the peninsula after the South accused its neighbor of sinking a warship.

The report by the South's Yonhap news agency immediately hit already nervous Seoul financial markets, with the main share index dropping more than three percent.

Yonhap quoted a local group of North Korea watchers as saying their sources there had told them Kim's command had been broadcast by a top military official.

There was no reference to the order on North Korean media seen outside the reclusive state nor any immediate comment from South Korean officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, this is the usual unsourced and anonymous claim.

Or course, one could hardly fault North Korea for increased vigilance at this time. One need only see the obvious parallels between the lies that led to war with Iraq, the lies tha6t led to war with Afghanistan, the lies that led to war in Pakistan, the lies that... well, you get the idea, to the lies being spun about North Korea to comprehend that they are the next target for a US government desperate for a new war to distract the public from the gulf oil disaster, the economic disaster, the existing wars which are disasters, etc. etc. etc.

The US Government needs a new war. They have been unable to get any traction for a war on Iran. So how they are trying to sell you a new war with North Korea, or to be more accurate a continuation of the old one.

The Nikkei is down 231 points as of this writing and the trading day in Japan is only half over. When (not if) the American stock market crashes the American people will turn their rage against the government that gave tax credits to corporations to shift jobs to other nations, then repealed Glass-Steagal that turned Wall Street into as giant open-air casino, then enacted bailouts (now made permanent) that looted the American people of trillions of dollars to save Wall Street form their gambling losses.

The US Government has a long history of using major wars to get out of economic messes they make. The US Government got out of the crash of 1907 by getting into WWI. The US Government got out of the crash of 1929 by getting into WWII. And here we are in the crash of 2007 and look how hard the US Government is trying to start wars everywhere on Earth, with our young people in uniform already in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and soon to be Iran and North Korea.

The US Government hopes and prays that the American people will be as stupid as they were in 1917 and 1941 and will stand to attention and salute the flag, throw their money and their children into the fires of war, and forget all about the corruption, the stolen elections, the gulf oil disaster, the mine disaster, the flooding, the potholed roads, the collapsing bridges, the ruined schools,n the ruined economy, the loss of manufacturing, the decline in America's standard of living, the closed hospitals, the out-of-control wildfires, and the wars we are already unable to win.

So, the only question is, are you really that stupid?

Are you?

Obama Moves For New World Order Again

Executive Orders are controversial because they allow the President to make major decisions, even law, without the consent of Congress. This, of course, runs against the general logic of the Constitution — that no one should have power to act unilaterally. Nevertheless, Congress often gives the President considerable leeway in implementing and administering federal law and programs. Sometimes, Congress cannot agree exactly how to implement a law or program. In effect, this leaves the decision to the federal agencies involved and the President that stands at their head. When Congress fails to spell out in detail how a law is to be executed, it leaves the door open for the President to provide those details in the form of Executive Orders.

A Democratic senator is introducing legislation for a bailout of troubled union pension funds. If passed, the bill could put another $165 billion in liabilities on the shoulders of American taxpayers.

The bill, which would put the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation behind struggling pensions for union workers, is being introduced by Senator Bob Casey, (D-Pa.), who says it will save jobs and help people.

As FOX Business Network’s Gerri Willis reported Monday, these pensions are in bad shape; as of 2006, well before the market dropped and recession began, only 6% of these funds were doing well.

Although right now taxpayers could possibly be on the hook for $165 billion, the liability could essentially be unlimited because these pensions have to be paid out until the workers die.

Opposition to the idea of repeal dropped seven points, for a total of a fourteen-point swing in eight days:

FLASHBACK - U.K., not North Korea, source of DDOS attacks, researcher says

The U.K. was the likely source of a series of attacks last week that took down popular Web sites in the U.S. and South Korea, according to an analysis performed by a Vietnamese computer security analyst.

The results contradict assertions made by some in the U.S. and South Korean governments that North Korea was behind the attack. Security analysts had been skeptical of the claims, which were reportedly made in off-the-record briefings and for which proof was never delivered.

The Sinking of the Cheonan: We Are Being Lied To

There is no doubt about it, there is no longer any reason to hold back, I have looked at the “evidence” and have concluded that we are being lied to, again, by our “leaders” in the White House in order to fabricate a measure of moral justification for yet another “regime change” campaign or an all out war with North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The official story is that the remains of a torpedo dredged up near the site where the Cheonan are an exact match to a North Korean export design. In point of fact, there are four major differences between the North Korean design and the remains dredged from the ocean floor.

PM: Radical Islam with nukes – danger to mankind

Amid international efforts to impose fresh sanctions against Iran, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Russia to cooperate with Israel in order to curb the Islamic Republic's nuclear ambitions.

"Radical Islam with nuclear capabilities poses a grave danger to mankind," he said, adding, "What is currently regarded as terror will be completely different if it will have a nuclear umbrella."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu; just in case your "selective memory" has kicked in yet again, here are the facts:

1. Iran is a signatory to the NNPT. This means that their nuclear program is consistently inspected by the IAEA.

2. To date, all inspections conducted by the IAEA have produced zero evidence that any nuclear material has gone missing, or that any nuclear material has been enriched beyond the point necessary to fuel a power station.

3. Israel, which has nuclear weapons, refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, or allow inspections of its nuclear sites.

3. Under US law (the Symington Amendment, to be specific), it is illegal for the US to give any aid to any country which has nuclear weapons, but refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT or allow inspections of its nuclear sites.

4. Yet, illegally, the US coughs up 3 billion dollars' worth of aid to Israel annually, while homeless American Vets sleep in our streets.

I do hope the above facts actually help sort the situation out for you, Mr. Prime Minister!

Eisenkot: IDF prepared for all-out war within hours

Northern council heads met Sunday with Northern Command Chief Gadi Eisenkot on the backdrop of this week's wide-scale home front command drill and the heightened state of alert declared by Hezbollah, and asked the Israel Defense Forces to convey a clear and calming message to the public during the days of the exercise.

"I hope this summer will be hot only in terms of its weather, and not in terms of war," said Hatzor Haglilit Mayor Shimon Swisa. Eisenkot, on his part, said that the IDF was prepared for an all-out war within hours.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would feel infinitely more comfortable had Northern Command Chief Eisenkot made the statement that the IDF was prepared for an all-out peace within hours! :-)

But what Eisenkot is telegraphing is that Israel is getting ready to initiate a war, against any one of its neighbors (or perhaps Iran) very quickly.

U.S. military told to get ready in Korea standoff

In a statement, the White House said Seoul can continue to count on the full backing of the United States and said U.S. military commanders had been told to work with their South Korean counterparts "to ensure readiness and to deter future aggression."

The administration said it endorsed President Lee Myung-bak's demand that "North Korea immediately apologize and punish those responsible for the attack, and, most importantly, stop its belligerent and threatening behavior."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that no where in this article does it mention that either the South Korean or the US military are actually at a heightened state of alert.

This is political posturing, nothing more; nothing less.

Andrew Wakefield Banned: British Doctor Behind MMR Vaccine Scare Struck Off Register

The council, which licenses and oversees doctors, found him guilty of serious professional misconduct and stripped him of his right to practice medicine in the U.K. Wakefield said he plans to appeal the ruling, which takes effect within 28 days. The investigation focused on how Wakefield and colleagues carried out their research, not on the science behind it.

Wakefield said in January that the medical council's investigation was an effort to "discredit and silence" him to "shield the government from exposure on the (measles) vaccine scandal."

Appearing from New York on NBC's "Today Show" on Monday, Wakefield described the British decision as "a little bump on the road." He claimed the U.S. government has been settling cases of vaccine-induced autism since 1991.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported on 12 February, 2009 in:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-f-kennedy-jr-and-david-kirby/vaccine-court-autism-deba_b_169673.html

"In his conclusion, Special Master Abell ruled that Petitioners had proven that the MMR had directly caused a brain inflammation illness called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) which, in turn, had caused the autism spectrum disorder PDD-NOS in the child:

The Court found that Bailey's ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. It is well-understood that the vaccination at issue can cause ADEM, and the Court found, based upon a full reading and hearing of the pertinent facts in this case, that it did actually cause the ADEM. Furthermore, Bailey's ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD [an autism spectrum disorder]. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was... a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay."

The Biggest Threat to Peace in Middle East

During its short 62 years history Israel had fought 8 wars against its Arab neighbors. It had developed nuclear weapons and did not sign the NPT. It had used chemical and nuclear (DU) weapons against civilians. It violated many UN resolutions. It committed war crimes and many massacres against civilians. It had refused all Arab peaceful gestures and keeps threatening to attack its neighbors. It occupation and destruction of religious sites, especially Islamic, might provoke religious war in the region. Israel is the biggest threat to peace in the Middle East.

In 2008, it became mandatory for all American cars to be fitted with CAN (Controller Area Network), a standard protocol for enabling all the car's electronics to talk to each other, so there's one part of the puzzle in place.

Cuts to Child Care Subsidy Thwart More Job Seekers

Able-bodied, outgoing and accustomed to working, Alexandria Wallace wants to earn a paycheck. But that requires someone to look after her 3-year-old daughter, and Ms. Wallace, a 22-year-old single mother, cannot afford child care.

Last month, she lost her job as a hair stylist after her improvised network of baby sitters frequently failed her, forcing her to miss shifts. She qualifies for a state-run subsidized child care program. But like many other states, Arizona has slashed that program over the last year, relegating Ms. Wallace’s daughter, Alaya, to a waiting list of nearly 11,000 eligible children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Children in this society have become expendable, as this single mom has so clearly been made to realize.

If there is no family willing to assist, probably the only alternatives this mom would have would be to give her daughter up for adoption, or place her in a foster home of some kind.

FLASHBACK - German subs delivered to Israel

Two new German submarines were delivered to Israel.

The submarines, ordered in 2005, reportedly can launch cruise missiles carrying nuclear warheads, according to the French news agency AFP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE POST THE FOLLOWING EVERYWHERE THE "BLAME NORTH KOREA" STORIES POP UP.

Now that the UN is asking for a look at the evidence for the sinking, the US is admitting the torpedo debris from the sinking comes from a GERMAN torpedo, but we are supposed to somehow assume that a German torpedo still points the finger of blame at North Korea.

Pop Quiz, students; what nation gets their submarines (for free) from Germany and has a long history of using false flag dirty tricks to trick other nations into wars?

Hint: Think "USS Liberty", "Lavon Affair", and the Bombing of Libya!

HISTORICAL NOTES ON HOW TO START WARS WITH SINKING SHIPS.

President McKinley told the American people that the USS Maine had been sunk in Havana Harbor by a Spanish mine. The American people, outraged by this apparent unprovoked attack, supported the Spanish American War. The Captain of the USS Maine had insisted the ship was sunk by a coal bin explosion, investigations after the war proved that such had indeed been the case. There had been no mine.

FDR claimed Pearl Harbor was a surprise
attack. It wasn't.
The United States saw war with Japan as the means to get into war with Germany, which Americans opposed. So Roosevelt needed Japan to appear to strike first. Following an 8-step plan devised by the Office of Naval Intelligence, Roosevelt intentionally provoked Japan into the attack. Contrary to the official story, the fleet did not maintain radio silence, but sent messages intercepted and decoded by US intercept stations. Tricked by the lie
of a surprise attack, Americans marched off to war.

President Johnson lied about the
Gulf of Tonkin to send Americans off to fight in Vietnam.

There were no torpedoes in the water in the Gulf. LBJ took advantage of an inexperienced sonar man's report to goad Congress into escalating the Vietnam War.

Israel has a long history of sinking other peoples' boats and then denying it happened.

WE HAVE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD BEFORE.

DO NOT GET SUCKERED!

Drones and Democracy

The social worker recalled arriving at a home that was hit, in Miranshah, at about 9:00 PM, close to one year ago. The house was beside a matchbox factory, near the degree college. The drone strike had killed three people. Their bodies, carbonized, were fully burned. They could only be identified by their legs and hands. One body was still on fire when he reached there. Then he learned that the charred and mutilated corpses were relatives of his who lived in his village, two men and a boy aged seven or eight. They couldn't pick up the charred parts in one piece. Finding scraps of plastic, they transported the body parts away from the site. Three to four others joined in to help cover the bodies in plastic and carry them to the morgue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Pakistani government and military, working in tandem with the US (for which, by they way, they have been handsomely compensated with your tax dollars), has declared a war against its own people.

Insurgency looks attractive when corruption, coupled with grinding poverty, and a completely non-responsive central government, become a deadly combination which creates all-consuming hatred of that government.

And that hatred can only result in one ultimate outcome, no matter how strong that country's military may be, and that is the destruction of that government.

These "armchair", extrajudicial assassinations the US is doing in Pakistan will ultimately create this result.

If chaos and the complete destabilization of Pakistan is what the US wants, then it is absolutely "on target" for accomplishing this.

Frustration mounting over BP delays, lack of progress

On a Sunday of expanding coastal destruction from the Gulf oil disaster and little progress in containing it, frustrations bubbled to the surface from local and state leaders in Venice to federal officials in Houston and Washington, D.C.

Parish leaders and Gov. Bobby Jindal emerged from an afternoon strategy session at a Venice fishing harbor to complain about a lack of urgency from federal agencies and BP to address the oil washing into coastal marshes day after day.

Jindal said he supported a decision by local and Jefferson Parish leaders on Grand Isle on Saturday to commandeer about 30 fishing vessels that BP had commissioned but hadn't deployed to lay down protective boom as the oil came ashore.

Italy suspends mark-to-market accounting on eurozone bonds

The Bank of Italy Tuesday said Italian lenders holding European government bonds in their available-for-sale portfolio don’t have to take into account possible capital gains or losses on them, in a move to safeguard capital ratios.

The decision came after volatility on European government bonds skyrocketed in recent weeks following several rating agencies downgrades, temporarily affecting the capital ratios of Italian, as well as other European, banks.

According to Italian securities laws Italian banks must deduct all the losses linked to the value of those bonds, but can only partially book capital gains.

During a brief appearance at Merthyr Crown Court he also admitted one count of inciting a child to commit an act of gross indecency.

Supreme Court to review case of Texas death row inmate who wants DNA testing

The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether a Texas death row inmate should have access to evidence for DNA testing that he says could clear him of three murders.

The justices said Monday they will use the case of Hank Skinner to decide whether prison inmates may use a federal civil rights law to do DNA testing that was not performed prior to their conviction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The circumstantial evidence in this case appears to be very strong against the convicted defendant.

However, that being said,DNA testing should be used in all murder trials, to avoid the possibility of false conviction, imprisonment and execution.

The number of people exonerated by DNA evidence should be a colossal embarrassment for both state and federal justice systems, and the use of such testing should be a standard procedure in all murder cases.

S.Korea cuts trade, sea lanes with North

South Korea Monday halted trade with North Korea as part of a package of reprisals for the sinking of one of its warships, drawing strong US support but threats of attack from the communist state.

President Lee Myung-Bak also banned the North's merchant ships from South Korean waters and said Seoul would refer the March 26 attack -- which killed 46 sailors -- to the United Nations Security Council for punishment.

In a nationally televised address, a sombre-looking Lee vowed an immediate military response to any future aggression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this move is infinitely more symbolic than real, in terms of the actual amount of trade which really goes on between the two Koreas, it unfortunately sets the stage for some kind of (perhaps second) false flag action to really kick the region into a state of war.

The Toronto G20 Police State Crackdown

It appears as if the G20 summit in Toronto is shaping up to be a showdown between anarchists and police. Caught in the middle of the security circus are local residents. If there is violence and property damage, peaceful protesters will also be demonized. The recent bombing of a bank, perpetrated by a so-called anarchist group, has given an excuse to enact more police state measures during the summit. The curious timing of the attack emphasizes the threat of terrorism and further justifies the huge security apparatus being assembled.

Overheated Plants Cause Global Warming?

...Carbon dioxide is not just making the atmosphere trap more heat, they say. It also enables plants to absorb CO2 more efficiently, so they don’t have to open stomata (pores) in their leaves as much, and they evaporate less water.

That should be good news, as it enables plants to survive better under dry conditions, even in desert areas where they couldn’t before.

But the Carnegie folks turned this good news into bad, ominously saying the reduced evapotranspiration means plants don’t cool down as much, and that supposedly raises global temperatures slightly.

When waging modern warfare, often the loudest sound is the one you don’t hear.

Faisal Sharzad—AKA The Times Square Fizzler—reportedly was trained by the “Pakistan Taliban” for a deadly deed that went horribly wrong.

Remember the “great sucking sound” that Ross Perot claimed he could hear?

Well, today, if you listen, there’s a different, almost opposite sound in the air. Instead of American jobs going to lower-paid foreign workers, foreign workers are leaving America for better jobs. It’s happening, increasingly, among professionals who expatriated to the U.S. in search of the good life and have begun seeing better prospects back in their countries of origin......

US has approved 19 environmental drilling waivers since oil spill

On May 14, President Barack Obama announced that oil companies would no longer be given license to bypass environmental reviews of their drilling projects.

“We’re also closing the loophole that has allowed some oil companies to bypass some critical environmental reviews,” Obama said.

But in the month since the BP-run Deepwater Horizon (above right) exploded and collapsed into the sea, its drill site spewing an unending current of oil into the open ocean, the US government has granted at least 19 environmental waivers for gulf drilling projects and 17 drilling permits. Most are for deepwater drilling operations, similar to that conducted by the ill-fated rig.

But I submit to every American the idea that if Article II—Section I of the US Constitution is no longer worthy of protection and preservation, then nothing in that document matters anymore.

If we fail to uphold Article II—Section I of the US Constitution, then we have failed to uphold, protect, preserve or defend any part of the US Constitution or the American way of life.

If the US Constitution no longer stands, then the United States of America no longer stands.

Is there a more pressing issue on the table today?

BREAKING NEWS : Australia Expels Israeli Diplomat Over Fake Passport Affair

By political correspondent Emma Rodgers : abc.net.au, news

The Federal Government is expelling an Israeli diplomat after it found Israel faked Australian passports that were used in a hit on a top Hamas leader in Dubai.

Foreign Minister Stephen Smith today condemned the fraud as “not the act of a friend” and a clear affront to Australia that cannot be tolerated.

“This is not what we expect from a nation with whom we have had such a close, friendly and supportive relationship,” he said.

In February several forged Australian passports were used in the assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

Mr Smith confirmed investigations by Australian Federal Police, ASIO and ASIS showed Israel fabricated the passports of four Australians who also had Israeli nationality.

Georgian Deputy FM: ‘New Stage in Georgia-Iran Relations’

Bilateral relations between Iran and Georgia are entering [a] "new stage" and Tbilisi hopes ties will further deepen, Nino Kalandadze, the Georgian deputy foreign minister, said on May 22.

"Georgia is highly grateful to the Iranian authorities’ policy towards Georgia, which we deem as very reasonable and which involves unconditional support to Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity," the Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister said.

Georgia and Iran are getting all "pally-pally" all of a sudden. Nothing to do with Georgia getting the cold shoulder from the Obama administration, I suppose?

JAMES PETRAS : Latin America’s New Middle Class Rulers: Stabilization, Growth and Inequality

The revival of popular revolutionary movements begins by rejecting complicity with the new middle class rulers presiding over the new phase of state-private capitalist expansion.

Latin America’s current relations with the US as well as its present political and economic configuration can best be understood in the context of large scale changes over the past twenty years and the relative stability of the past five years.

Israelis asked to visit passport plant here before Dubai killing

By Sam Smyth

Three fraudulent Australian passports, four French, 12 British, one German and eight Irish passports were used in the killing.

ISRAELI officials asked to inspect the Dublin plant where security-enhanced passports are made — just a month before a Middle East assassination by agents using forged Irish documents.

A serious diplomatic incident was looming last night after a top-level report concluded that an Israeli intelligence agency forged the Irish passports used in the murder of a Hamas operative in Dubai in January.

The Department of Foreign Affairs believes that an Israeli state agency provided the eight forged Irish passports used by agents involved in the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

Israel demands world 'respond decisively' to North Korea nuclear test

"Israel expects the international community to respond decisively to the nuclear detonation by North Korea, so as to transmit an unambiguous message to other countries."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clearly Israel has motive to trick the US into war with North Korea.

Of course it is interesting to note how Israel screams about North Korea's (and Iran's) nuclear weapons just as evidence surfaces probing Israel was offering to sell nuclear warheads to South Africa!

U.N. Command to probe investigation that blamed N. Korea for sinking ship

The United Nations Command said Friday that it will convene a special committee to review the investigation that concluded North Korea had torpedoed a South Korean patrol ship.

The review, initiated by the South Korean Defense Ministry, is in response to North Korea’s request to send its own team to investigate the wreckage, according to The Associated Press. The North has denied involvement since the sinking and has said repeatedly that continued accusations and condemnation could lead to war.

The U.N. Command’s Military Armistice Commission, which has overseen the truce between the two Koreas since the end of Korean War hostilities in 1953, would conduct a probe separate from the multinational investigation.
