WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American . . . . The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." -- The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788

Unrepentant Tony Blair Calls for Iran Attacks

Blair however chides antiwar people to “keep an open mind” and insists that the war was a great success.

So great a success in fact that he seems eager to replicate it with a similar war against Iran on similarly false pretenses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay Phony Tony; here is your rifle and here is your parachute. Climb aboard this here airplane and we'll call Ahmadinejad and tell him you are on your way.

Ripping Off Dead War Vets' Beneficiaries

Pru and Met Life alone rip off hundreds of millions of dollars annually, stealing one of their main profit centers with no accountability. Since 1999, the VA let Prudential send survivors "checkbooks" for its Alliance Account. "In 2009 alone, (recipient) families....were supposed to be paid" $1 billion in death benefits "immediately, according to their insurance policies. They weren't."

US group says it plans to send plane to Gaza

A pro-Palestinian group based in the US will send a plane loaded with aid to the Gaza Strip in defiance of Israel’s air and sea blockade, an official said Sunday.
“We intend to send an aircraft to Gaza in much the same way boats were used — without going through Israeli or Egyptian airspace,” said Paul Larudee, an organizer with the California-based Free Palestine Movement sponsoring the flight.

Authorities in Gaza are supportive of the initiative and are working to locate a landing site, Larudee said. Gaza’s now-defunct Yasser Arafat International Airport is not being considered, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Use parachute drops like the Berlin airlift sometimes did.

Instead of hurling threats of more violence, which only serve to reinforce opinion that Hamas is a terrorist organization, the words and deeds of the resistance movement should be carefully chosen to harmonise with the West’s values and beliefs.

This is Hamas’s chance to ‘educate’ the rest of the world as to the truth about the evil that stalks the Holy Land. It is perhaps a final window of opportunity to define the massive, decades-old injustice accurately.

“Forcing the Gazan population to pay bills is out of the question.

Hamas, don't blow this chance

This is Hamas's chance to 'educate' the rest of the world as to the truth about the evil that stalks the Holy Land. It is perhaps a final window of opportunity to define the massive, decades-old injustice accurately.
For example, Hamas could have said: "Israel doesn't have a monopoly on security and we Palestinians are equally entitled to feel safe… Armed Jewish squatters terrorise Palestinian families, menace our children, damage crops, poison our water and often cause fatal harm… Therefore any armed squatter on Palestinian soil risks the same fate as an armed Palestinian found in Israel."

“Winning” today is to just keep on making war in any shape or form so the rich get richer while the masses are just tools – now on the battlefield – as they were in the worst of factories in the West during the Industrial Revolution – and sitting on their fat asses at home mesmerized by pieces of shit like Glenn Beck. And since the media, owned of course by members of the Taliban, HAMAS, and Hizballah, have turned the American public into retards; most Americans don’t seem to notice that all we ever fucking do anymore is fight wars.

Israeli FM Slams Peace Talks, Insists Peace ‘Unattainable’ for Generations

Hawkish Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who has made it clear time and again that he opposes on general principle the idea of a peace settlement with the Palestinians, today again lashed out at the talks.

“Signing a comprehensive peace agreement is an unattainable goal – not next year and not in the next generation,” Lieberman insisted in comments given at a Yisrael Beiteinu event.

Sources: As many as 2,000 more troops may be going to Afghanistan

As many as 2,000 additional troops -- including a number of U.S. forces -- may be headed to Afghanistan in the coming weeks under a plan backed by Gen. David Petraeus, CNN has learned.

Petraeus has not commented publicly on the need for more troops, but a U.S. defense official and a senior NATO official directly familiar with his thinking and the entire matter have confirmed details to CNN.

The proposal for more troops has been briefed to NATO officials behind closed doors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and NATO has never, ever had enough troops on the ground to win this on a military level.

This proposed addition of yet another 2,000 troops will not put the US and NATO any closer to that goal, and Petraeus knows that.

The Afghan forces the US and NATO have trained have been notoriously flaky in terms of getting the training, then using that training - and American and NATO weapons - against American and NATO troops.

The insurgency here is winning: that is the reality.

What the US and NATO appear to be doing is just trying to prolong the madness and insanity of this occupation just a little while longer, at least through the US election cycle in November.

The only elements which appear to be "winning" in this conflict are the drug dealers, and the large corporations supplying contract mercenaries and supplies.

Lebanon PM says he erred in blaming father's murder on Syria

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said in comments published on Monday that he erred in accusing Syria of the murder of his father, ex-premier Rafiq Hariri, in a 2005 bombing in Beirut.

"At some point, we made a mistake," Hariri told the Saudi-owned daily Asharq Al-Awsat. "At one stage, we accused Syria of assassinating the martyred premier.

A Tsunami Approaches: The Beginning of the Great Deconstruction

Like any tsunami, the wave began long ago and very far out to sea. Thirty years ago the vast majority of union workers were in the private sector. Public employees in unions reached parity with private sector members by 2009. This was aided in part by campaign contributions from the unions to elect Democratic Party candidates and generous pay packages and retirement plans passed by those same politicians in return.

Fresh Kills - The Dust of the Dead

The operation at Fresh Kills had three objectives: to find human remains, personal effects, and any evidence of the terrorist attack such as a highjacker’s box cutter, cell phones from the planes, and the black boxes.

For almost a year, the recovery team at the Fresh Kills facility sifted, sorted, and searched through 1.8 million tons of World Trade Center material. The staff never recovered a black box from the jets, a box cutter, or anything relating to the hijackers.

America is leaving the ruins behind in Iraq

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They created a desolation, and they called it 'peace'." -- Tacitus

Sep 06 09:16

even as it enters into talks, Israel declares policy of separating Gaza and W.B.

At the same time that it is setting forth on peace talks with the U.S. and the Palestinian Authority, Israel has for the first time publicly endorsed the policy of separating Gaza and the West Bank politically (and culturally).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under international law, going back to the Hague Conventions and the Fourth Geneva Convention, Israel is required by virtue of their membership ion the United Nations to enforce Palestinian law in occupied Palestinian lands. Once again Israel defies the United Nations and international law with impunity. Of course, when anyone points out that Israel is once again refusing to honor their commitments under international law, one is denounced as an anti-Semite and has their career wrecked.

They caused the Iraq War and remain without shame

During the past week, as the US president Barack Obama announced the withdrawal of US combat forces from Iraq, there was considerable media commentary focusing on the lies that had been utilised to build public support for the war.

The two that received the most attention were the argument that Saddam had an active programme to develop weapons of mass destruction and the assertion, made most vigorously by the then vice president Dick Cheney, that there were “proven links” connecting the Iraqi leadership to the terrorist attacks on September 11.

Both were, of course, deliberate fabrications but both did play important roles in shaping public opinion and justifying the invasion of Iraq. The propaganda effort to win support for the war involved much more.

Report: Iran Paying Taliban to Kill U.S. Troops

- At least five Iranian companies in Afghanistan's capital are using their offices covertly to finance Taliban militants in provinces near Kabul, according to an investigation by London's Sunday Times.

Western officials believe the network may have been set up by the Al-Quds force, an elite branch of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, this so-called "investigation" by London's Sunday Times is really big on spectacular allegations, but refuses to back them up with solid evidence.

Who are these companies, and why are they not named?!? Who are the officials doling out this money?!?

And note that the statements made here are never sourced (a classic propaganda trick.)

English Neofascist Group to be Featured at 9/11 Anti-Mosque Rally

Earlier this week, I noted that Newt Gingrich and John Bolton, both of whom had been scheduled to appear at Pamela Geller’s Sept. 11 rally in Lower Manhattan against the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” now appear to be getting cold feet — Gingrich has pulled out entirely, while Bolton will deliver a videotaped message rather than appearing in person. Now we get one possible reason why Gingrich and Bolton were so hesitant: according to Geller, members of the English Defense League, a British far-right group, will also be attending the rally. The EDL is notorious for provoking violent confrontations with residents and law enforcement, simply adding to worries that the rally against what Geller and her allies term a “9/11 victory monument” will end badly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will block the mosque being built at ground zero when you block Christian churches from being built near playgrounds!

9/11 Firefighters: Bombs and Explosions in the WTC

[Firefighter Louie] Cacchioli was called to testify privately [before the 9/11 Commission], but walked out on several members of the committee before they finished, feeling like he was being interrogated and cross-examined rather than simply allowed to tell the truth about what occurred in the north tower on 9/11. "My story was never mentioned in the final report [PDF download] and I felt like I was being put on trial in a court room," said Cacchioli. "I finally walked out. They were trying to twist my words and make the story fit only what they wanted to hear. All I wanted to do was tell the truth and when they wouldn't let me do that, I walked out. ... It was a disgrace to everyone, the victims and the family members who lost loved ones. I don't agree with the 9/11 Commission.

Mideast crisis looms over Israeli settlements

Just days after Mideast peace talks began in Washington, the first major crisis is already looming: Israel hinted Sunday it will ease restrictions on building in West Bank settlements, while the Palestinian president warned he'll quit the talks if Israel resumes construction.

Israel's 10-month-old slowdown on new building in settlements expires Sept. 26, leaving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a tough choice.

If he extends the freeze, he risks breaking up his hardline coalition. If he lifts the restrictions, he risks getting blamed for derailing negotiations and disrupting President Barack Obama's Mideast peace efforts soon after they began.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This alleged "slowdown" in Israeli building has been a bad joke, played by Israel on the Palestinians.

What we will continue to see here will be a massive Israeli annexation of Palestinian lands, coupled with forced expulsions of Palestinians who have lived where they are living for generations.

Obama, and the other world leaders, are collectively unwilling, and/or incapable, of getting this to stop.

The government of Israel is not interested in peace: it is only interested in the acquisition of territory, and by any means necessary.

A Galant Act of Terror

In 2006, Israel was utterly defeated in Lebanon. The army commander back then was Dan Halutz, an air force officer. It is unusual for a “blue” (someone from the air force in Hebrew slang) to reach such a position. Halutz held back the “greens” (ground forces) during the operation because he didn’t trust them and sent the air force ahead. It was a disaster. The fact that in the morning of the attack he found time to contact his broker and sell his stocks in the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange didn’t help to his public image. He left humiliated. It was time for a major change. Halutz – as his predecessors – was Ashkenazi. In 2007, Amir Peretz – then Minister of Defense – called Gabi Ashkenazi back to the army as Chief of Staff.

Glenn Beck 8/28 rally – the death rattle of mainstream conservatism Category: General

Glenn Beck’s big rally at the Lincoln Memorial a couple days ago is the talk of the news media and the internet. Liberals are denouncing it, conservatives are walking on air, while tens of millions of people are completely mystified. And with good reason – if Seinfeld was a show about nothing, this massive gathering was a rally about nothing. And while it may have looked impressive, in reality it shows just how impotent and adrift the mainstream conservative movement has become.

An Al Quds day letter to Tony Blair from his sister-in-law

Yesterday, I stood in the midst of more than one million Iranian Muslims all chanting in unison 'Marg Bar Isre-hell!' and 'Marg Bar Am-ri-ca!' You know what that means Tony I'm sure; 'Down with Israel, down with America'. The men, women and children around me withstood a day of no water and no food (it's called Ramadan, Tony, it's a fast). Coping with hunger and thirst in the hundred degrees heat, as if it were nothing. They can withstand deprivation in the Muslim world. Here in Iran they feel proud to suffer in order to express solidarity with the people of Palestine. It's kind of like the way you express solidarity with America only without illegal chemical weapons and a million civilian deaths.

US mulls approval of GM salmon

US authorities have begun to consider approval for the first time the sale of genetically engineered salmon, a move that some say could open the door to more transgenic animals on American dinner tables.

A US Food and Drug Administration panel has set a hearing for September 19-20 to consider a proposal by Massachusetts-based AquaBounty Technologies for production and sale of a new Atlantic salmon with a growth hormone gene from the Chinook salmon that allows it to grow faster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at:


Genetically engineered Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH)

"Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone is a genetically engineered copy of a naturally occurring hormone produced by cows. "

"Both the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) and the Consumer's Union, publisher of Consumer Reports magazine, have warned of the potential hazards to human health caused by consuming products derived from rBGH-treated cows.

While rBGH is banned in Europe and Canada, and has been boycotted by 95 percent of US dairy farmers, the FDA, Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Agriculture continue to license the drug (and other new genetically engineered foods) without pre-market safety tests. Thanks to industry pressure, genetically engineered foods are NOT required to carry identifying labels. "

The ingestion of this product has been linked to sharp increases in the onset of physical maturation for younger and younger children.

If the FDA does approve of this "Frankensalmon" going to market, with no testing and no information about it being genetically engineered on the label, you had probably better think very carefully about ever eating salmon again.

The Impact of Fiat Money as the World’s Reserve Currency

David Redick
Activist Post

The creation of fiat official government money has had a profound effect in history and on our nation and the world today. "Fiat" means it is worth whatever the government says it is (its face value), although the material of which it is made may have more or less intrinsic market value. Examples would include both valuable silver dollars and worthless paper, each declared to be worth $1; and today’s American Eagle bullion coin with a face value of $50 for one ounce of gold.

It Fell in Silence: The Collapse of World Trade Center 7

Many Americans are unaware that three buildings within the World Trade Center complex fell on September 11, 2001. Located just 300 feet from the North Tower, World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7) was a forty-seven story steel frame building, which collapsed vertically in 6.5 seconds more than 6 hours after the collapse of the Twin Towers. Although the collapse of the towers was televised hundreds of times, the collapse of WTC 7 was seldom shown or discussed. The widely publicized 9/11 Commission Report fails to even mention the collapse of WTC 7 in its 568 pages. Looking beyond the limited information provided by the mass media, activist artist, Nathan Janes explores a number of questions related to the collapse of WTC 7 in his newest work.

‘Firedoglake’ is progressive– just don’t talk about Palestine

By Philip Weiss of Mondoweiss

Here is an important matter that I have been sitting on for days and that people who care about American support for Palestinian oppression need to be aware of: the extent to which Firedoglake, a leading progressive site, suppresses criticism of Israel. The battle demonstrates that even inside the left, the Israel lobby is a strong force. Indeed, the founder of the site, movie producer Jane Hamsher, has dismissed concern for Palestinians as a “pet issue.”

As I have said often, our country cannot make progress on this critical policy issue until people who care about Palestinian freedom find one another and make a political combination to take on the Israel lobby.

9/11 was an Inside Job: 9/11 Truth is STILL the Issue

9/11 Truth is still very relevant! Millions of people are still asleep and believe 19 Muslim ninjas planned and carried out one of the largest terror attacks in history.

We must honor the victims and the first responders by pushing 9/11 truth even more than we already have.

Dying of Money -- Lessons of the Great German and American Inflations

Most of us have at least a general idea of what we think inflation is. Inflation is the state of affairs in which prices go up. Inflation is an old, old story. Inflation is almost as ancient as money is, and money is almost as ancient as man himself.

Despite formal combat end, US joins Baghdad battle

Days after the U.S. officially ended combat operations and touted Iraq's ability to defend itself, American troops found themselves battling heavily armed militants assaulting an Iraqi military headquarters in the center of Baghdad on Sunday. The fighting killed 12 people and wounded dozens.

As we traveled from Tel Aviv to Ni’ilin, the invisiblity of borders between Israel and the West Bank struck me. We drove up route 443 and turned left towards Modayin Elite. Even though the roads are in the West Bank it feels as though we are in the middle of the Tel Aviv suburbs. There is no sign marking the green line. There is nothing, just one whitewashed Israeli town after another. After we pass Modayin Elite, we arrive at a checkpoint. This feels kind of like a border but it is temporary and shifting. Just after the checkpoint, we take a sharp left and are in the middle of the city of Ni’ilin. It feels like a pocket. A pocket of natives in a sea of settlers.

Missing Links: The Definitive Truth About 9/11

Now you will discover the definitive truth about 9/11 and learn why even the most popular movies on the subject have failed to address the evidence exhaustively presented in this video. The facts will make it abundantly clear that the so-called 9/11 Truth movement has been infiltrated and is ultimately controlled by the same criminal group who masterminded the attacks. As they say, 'if you want to control the dissent you lead the dissent.' Utilizing evidence from the FBI, CIA, NSA, US Armed Forces Intelligence sectors, Foreign Intelligence organizations, local law enforcement agencies and independent investigators, Missing Links goes where no other 9/11 video has dared to.

A water truck backs up to the Euphrates River in Iraq. The driver, a Ugandan or maybe an Ethiopian, gets out, lowers a hose into the sewage ridden flow and fills his truck. 5 miles away, a US Army water purification center sits, too far away. The driver thinks, “water is water.” Another of the Pentagon’s “Zombie Contractors” take their toll, part of the army of “undead” and unqualified who are the world’s most expensive work force.

The driver, an employee of a company once headed by the Vice President of the United States, could care less, clean water, filth or sewage, it is only going to American troops as drinking water.

More War Lies

Lies aren’t used just to start wars, but also to escalate them, continue them, and even reduce or end them. And we got a pile of war lies from the president Tuesday evening.

Obama claimed the war on Iraq was initially a war to disarm a state. Really? And then “terrorist” Iraqis attacked our troops in their country. Yet if they had done that in our country, I suspect they would still be the terrorists. And then it became a civil war which we were innocently caught up in. Uh huh.

Obama targeted killings lawsuit spotlights American civilians

"An extrajudicial killing policy under which names are added to CIA and military 'kill lists' through a secret executive process and stay there for months at a time is plainly not limited to imminent threats." - Center for Constitutional Rights

Targets on Obama's high-tech kill-list in the "war on terror" hope that the American Civil Liberties Union and Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) lawsuit challenging government's asserted authority for "targeted killings” of U.S. citizens far from armed conflict zones will shed light directly on them, innocent American Targeted Individuals (TIs) and TIs in other countries, each struggling to survive the covert operation already operational. There is widespread belief that already, voiceless, faceless targets are dying or have been covertly killed according to TI support group communications.

"That the government adds people to kill lists after a bureaucratic process and leaves them on the lists for months at a time flies in the face of the Constitution and international law," stated Vince Warren, Executive Director of CCR. (CCR, Rights Groups File Challenge To Targeted Killing By U.S., Sept. 1, 2010)

Anthony D. Romero, Executive Director of the ACLU said, “A program that authorizes killing U.S. citizens, without judicial oversight, due process or disclosed standards is unconstitutional, unlawful and un-American.”

Gulf Residents Test Positive For Oil In Blood

Grand Isle – Several gulf residents have tested positive for oil in their blood as documented by Matt Smith and Heather Rally

Further testing is currently being preformed to find out if the chemical dispersant Corexit, made by Nalco, has entered the bloodstreams of gulf coast residents.

Smith, who is on scene in Louisiana had this to say:

“It’s deadly because it’s accumulative…. the issue here is that these are residents these aren’t even the workers… everyone is getting sick….. it has turned into an aerosol in the air, and no one is talking about this, no one.”

CEOs who fire people tend to make more money. That's been the trend recently, according to 'CEO Pay and The Great Recession' from the Institute for Policy Studies.

The 50 top CEO layoff leaders received $12 million on average in 2009, compared to the S&P 500 average of $8.5 million. Each of the corporations surveyed laid off at least 3,000 workers between November 2008 and April 2010. Seventy-two percent of the firms announced mass layoffs at a time of positive earnings reports.

Israeli raids claim lives in Gaza

Two Palestinians have been killed in Israeli air raids in the Gaza Strip, medics and security sources say. Another person has been critically injured.

The Israeli army launched three raids in the south of Gaza on Saturday after Palestinian fighters fired a rocket over the border.

The flare-up of violence on the Israel-Gaza border came just two days after the relaunch of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in the US.

"The Militarization of Hollywood": Unlocking "The Hurt Locker"

Why did "The Hurt Locker," a well-acted, tension-filled but otherwise undistinguished Hollywood war movie focusing on a military bomb-disposal team in Iraq, win the 2010 Academy Award for Best Picture?

After viewing the film recently, it appears to us that the main reason the U.S. movie industry bestowed the honor is that Kathryn Bigelow, who also received the Best Director prize, concealed the real nature of the American war in two distinct ways.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hollywood has historically been the "media consort" of the White House and Pentagon; that this film won such acclaim is simply another aspect of "selling" the war in Iraq, no matter how illegal or immoral this war has been

Pentagon Bulks Up Yemen’s Arsenal as Shadow War Grows

Yemen is the new Pakistan — well, at least it is to many in the Pentagon, the White House, and the intelligence community. U.S. spies think al-Qaeda’s Yemeni affiliate is the most likely terrorist network to attack us, And just like last year’s $400 million U.S. “counterinsurgency fund” for Pakistan tried to get the Pakistani military al-Qaeda-specific weapons, the Pentagon’s already given Yemen $155 million dollars’ worth of copters, Humvees, radios and transport planes to contain the evolving terrorist threat. Look for all that to expand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the White House, State Department, and Pentagon: this is a really, really bad idea which is very likely to have the absolutely opposite outcome from that which you would like to see happen.

Yemen is characterized as one of the most corrupt countries in the Middle East, and in this neck of the woods, geopolitically, that's saying something.

The current "President for Life", one Ali Saleh, has absolutely no concern for the people of his country, and a human rights record that would shame even the most tinpot of tinpot dictators.

Grinding poverty, corruption, coupled with an almost complete absence of infrastructure and transparency in government, is that toxic brew which can lead some people to find insurgency attractive, when they have nothing left to lose but their lives.

So if this military aid is going to be deployed (primarily to prevent disruption of Saudi Arabia's oil fields), it needs to be deployed with humanitarian and infrastructure aid that really gets to where it's needed. Schools, hospitals, and investment capital will do much to improve the lot of the people of Yemen to the point where insurgency won't seem like such an attractive choice.

But if this is not done, whenever a kid, mom, uncle or aunt gets mowed down or maimed for life, courtesy of Yemeni, Saudi, or US firepower, it will simply push those left standing into the embrace of the insurgencies.

We have seen these US policies fail in Iraq (where the coming civil war is simply simmering on the back burner), Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Why are we again looking at importing a thoroughly failed policy yet again to Yemen?!?

It makes absolutely no sense to thinking Americans.

12 die in attack on Baghdad military headquarters

Suicide bombers hit a Baghdad military headquarters on Sunday and killed 12 people, two weeks after an attack on the same site pointed to the failure of Iraqi forces to plug even the most obvious holes in their security.

Baghdad has been on high alert as the U.S. declared the official end to its combat operations in Iraq last week, yet the militants still managed to attack an obvious target in the center of the city that has been struck very recently.

Five Years After and We Still Don’t Know

In a September 1, 2006, New York Times article, "U.S. moves to debunk ‘alternative theories’ on Sept. 11 attacks", Jim Dwyer reports that the National Institute of Standards and Technology, an agency of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, disputes Professor Jones’ suggestion. NIST believes that such "enormous quantities of thermite would have to be applied to the structural columns to damage them" that engineered demolition is not feasible.

Gentle reader, note what NIST is saying. If no reasonable quantity of the explosive thermite, which is used for engineered demolition, could damage the powerful buildings, the measly energy from an airliner, a bit of jet fuel, and gravity could not have collapsed the buildings.

No Safe Harbor on Gulf Coast; Human Blood Tests Show Dangerous Levels of Toxic Exposure

Even as BP and US government officials continue to declare the oil spill over at Mississippi Canyon 252 and the cleanup operation an unqualified success, for the first time blood tests on sickened humans have shown signs of exposure to high levels of toxic chemicals related to crude oil and dispersants. Some of the individuals tested have not been on the beaches, were not involved in any cleanup operations or in the Gulf water -- they simply live along the Gulf Coast. Several of them are now leaving the area due to a combination of illness and economic hardship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple, really: the US government and BP are lying to the people of this country about the damage to humans and the ecosystem this disaster has created, and the corporate media simply refuses to report on it.

China fears depreciation of $2.45 trillion of reserves still heavy in dollars

"Once a reserve currency's value becomes unstable, there will be quite large depreciation risks for assets," she wrote in an article that appeared in the latest issue of China Finance, a central bank magazine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Chinese have every reason to be concerned about the potential depreciation of the US dollar, and so should Americans.

Israel has one of world's largest 'eavesdropping' intel bases

Israel has one of the largest signals intelligence (SIGINT) bases in the world in the western Negev, Le Monde Diplomatique reported. The base, near Kibbutz Urim, is central to the activities of the main Israel Defense Forces signals intelligence unit, 8200, the report says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
Sep 05 10:09


A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.

It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof.

The review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC) was launched after the IPCC’s hugely embarrassing 2007 benchmark climate change report, which contained exaggerated and false claims that Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.

US denies taxpayer funds to bail out Kabul Bank

The US Treasury Department denied media reports Saturday that American taxpayer funds would be put towards bailing out Afghanistan's beleaguered Kabul Bank.

The White House said the allegations were not true and pointed to a statement from Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin that said the bank's troubles were "an Afghan issue."

"They are taking immediate steps to ensure the stability of Kabul Bank and to protect the financial assets of the Afghan people," Wolin said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Deputy Treasury Secretary Wolin, where, precisely, is the money going to come from to stabilize the Kabul Bank?

The American taxpayers deserve some straight answers on this.

Tony Blair: Cheney’s vision ‘not stupid,’ possible ‘over time’

Vice-President Dick Cheney's vision of completely redrawing the map of the Middle East following the 9/11 attacks is "not stupid," and is "possible over time," former British Prime Minister Tony Blair says.

In his new book, A Journey, the former Labour Party leader wrote that Cheney wanted a wholesale reorganization of the political map of the Middle East after 9/11. The vice president "would have worked through the whole lot, Iraq, Syria, Iran, dealing with all their surrogates in the course of it -- Hezbollah, Hamas, etc," Blair wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to see an amendment passed to the US Constitution, stipulating one thing; that every member of the Congress, Cabinet,and the Executive in the US will have a close member of their families serving on the front lines during the time of their service, and be most apt to be blown to bits or maimed for life, when military action is ordered.

It perhaps may give those in power in the US just a little pause before using military force as opposed to diplomacy.

And as to Cheney's "vision", as Blair characterizes it, that just makes me want to throw up. Cheney's "vision" had utterly nothing to do with the safety and security of the American people.

This was simply an excuse, based on a pack of lies, for using the US military in order to potentially gain private profit for corporations.

In Iraq, it was supposed to be the oil, and we can see just how well that worked out.

In Afghanistan, it was pipelines with which to control Eurasian Oil, the drug trade (which the Taliban had actually curtailed under their watch), and the exploitation of Afghanistan's mineral wealth,and the only element of this which has happened under the US and NATO occupation is a soaring drug trade.

And an attack against Iran?!? Such an attack, now that the reactors for the power plant are being fueled, will send a radioactive plume around the world, sickening and killing many innocents. Such an attack would galvanize the Iranian people to Ahmedinejad's side, and have an absolutely opposite outcome from what the US and Israel want. And of course, Amanpour would never in her life ask the most obvious, glaring question here; what will nuclear-armed Russia and China do if the US and Israel attack Iran?!?

Major NH National Guard Deployment Announced

Army officials said 750 soldiers from the New Hampshire Army National Guard will be heading to Kuwait as part of Operation New Dawn.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

September 1st, 1917, the New Hampshire National Guard (then called the State Guard) became the first US military unit deployed to France against Imperial Germany. The State Guards were sent first because they were already operational units, while the regular Army was still in the process of ramping up their numbers and logistics. My Grandfather, Walter Louis Smith, served in the New Hampshire State Guard, and lost a lung to German Mustard Gas in the early days of WWI.

Needless to say, I am alarmed that the New Hampshire National Guard is again being deployed to foreign shores. Does this again signal the start of a new World War?

Dead Souls: The Pentagon Plan to Create Remorseless 'Warfighters'

Penny Coleman at Alternet.com gives us a look at a new program designed to dull the moral sensibilities of American soldiers in combat on the imperial frontiers: Pentagon, Big Pharma: Drug Troops to Numb Them to Horrors of War.

But as we'll see below, this attempt to peddle magic pills to chase away the horrors of war is just one front in a long-term, wide-ranging "warfighter enhancement program" -- including the neurological and genetic re-engineering of soldiers' minds and bodies to create what the Pentagon calls "iron bodied and iron willed personnel": tireless, relentless, remorseless, unstoppable.

In the Pentagon's view these killer soldiers are the "victims."

The six defendants include Global Horizons President and CEO Mordechai Orian, 45; Director of International Relations Pranee Tubchumpol, 44; Hawaii regional supervisor Shane Germann, 41; and onsite field supervisor Sam Wongsesanit, 39. The Thailand recruiters were identified as Ratawan Chunharutai and Podjanee Sinchai.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is what AP is NOT telling you (and why you come to WRH). Mordechai Orian is a huge GOP donor! Orian gave tens of thousands of dollars to the National Republican
Congressional Committee on eight occasions between 2004 and 2006. His largest contribution of $11,000 came on July 13, 2006. Orian also gave $2000 to the GOP-affiliated Restore America PAC twice in that period.

During those years the Republican-led Congress debated and sought to pass a major immigration reform bill that involved, among many other things, an expanded guest-worker program. The legislation ultimately failed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The pro-Israel faction has been screaming for years that First Amendment freedom of speech should not apply to speech that incites hate. If so, then it needs to be applied to all these Israeli front groups selling hate against the Muslims!

Each has then gone on to put over the required message: that the science of global warming remains unchallenged.

Badge-Toting Pyschotic Shoots Up Home, Gets Off Scot-Free

Following surgery to remove the bullet he had received as a consolation prize for finishing second in a shoot-out, Ensminger filed the predictably perjurious official report. He claimed to have observed Nelson driving erratically, and that she had attempted to run him over when he displayed the trinket denoting his supposed authority.

That claim was demolished by contradictory eyewitness testimony, which established that while Ensminger screamed at Nelson and wagged a finger in her direction, he never flashed his badge.

Ripping off Dead War Vets' Beneficiaries

Wall Street and other financial scammers do it from the living, Prudential and many insurers from the dead, ripping off families of killed war vets. On July 28, Bloomberg.com's David Evans discussed how it works in an article titled, "Fallen Soldiers' Families Denied Cash as Insurers Profit," a polite way of explaining grand theft.
