As Henry Kissinger once rightly observed, it is often more dangerous being America’s ally than its enemy.

Watching Washington’s growing anger Afghan president Hamid Karzai, one recalls the unhappy endings of such former US allies as South Vietnam’s Diem, Iran’s Shah, Indonesia’s Suharto, Nicaragua’s Somoza, and Pakistan’s Zia ul-Haq.

Washington has been loudly hinting it would like to oust Karzai, but so far it has not managed to identify a suitable replacement who commands any respect or tribal support from Afghans.

Hawaii tax plan raises $75M less than hoped

State House negotiators last night offered to significantly scale back a proposal to lift general-excise tax exemptions on several business activities and impose a new GET hike, a move that would generate $25.3 million — instead of about $100 million — to help contain the state's budget deficit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What kind of an idiot looks at a population faced with major unemployment and wage reductions and imagines that higher taxes will help?

Senate expected to approve $667 million tax bill today

New sales taxes on candy, beer and bottled water would start in June, and on carbonated beverages in July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Candy is bad for you, rainwater is just as pure as the bottled stuff, and as long as you do not sell it, it is perfectly legal to brew your own beer at home, and since you are not required to add all the chemicals the state-approved beer companies are forced to add, you will get a better-tasting product!

It is time to stop buying anything the government is adding taxes to.

BOMBSHELL – Whistle Blower Comes Forward With Solid Proof The Price Of Gold And Silver Is Being Manipulated By Major Financial Institutions

For a long time many of us have had very serious suspicions that the prices of gold and silver were being highly manipulated. But now, thanks to the mind blowing testimony of one very brave whistle blower, the blatant manipulation of the world gold and silver markets is being blown wide open. What you are about to read below is absolutely staggering. Once the American people learn how incredibly corrupt the world financial system is, it is going to change everything. The government that we are all trusting to guard the integrity of the financial system is failing to do that job. It turns out that the Commodities Futures Trading Commission has been sitting on solid evidence that the elite banking powers have been openly and blatantly manipulating the price of gold and silver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The purveyors of pretty printed pieces of paper (stocks, fiat currencies, etc.) have clear motive to depress the prices of tangible assets such as silver and gold, in order to keep the suckers buying and selling the PPPoP, which can be inflated, and "Enronized" on demand.

Aussies Safer at Strip Clubs than in Churches

Aussies safer in a strip club than a church, figures show
By Brenden Hills From: The Sunday Telegraph April 11, 2010 11:51am

THEY may be holy places of worship and reflection, but new figures show you may not be as safe in a NSW church as you are at a strip club or in a brothel.

The latest data, compiled by the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, showed 1600 people were charged with committing a range of 27 offences in the state's "places of worship'' in 2008.

Surprisingly, the figures showed only 282 people were charged in premises classified as adult entertainment over the same offences.


After reading this I wouldn't necessarily suggest taking kids to strip clubs on Sundays, but...

Israeli Military Order Sets Up Mass Expulsion of Palestinians From West Bank

Under the new regulations, any Palestinian, including those born in the West Bank or the Gaza Strip, could be classified as an “infiltrator” if they don’t have explicit permission from the Israeli military to reside in the territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the beginning of the end for Palestinians.

Israel is getting ready to annex the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, forcibly expel any Palestinian left standing in those areas.

Hamid Karzai, R.I.P.

Karzai is either going to change his tune, or else find himself the victim of an "accident": a military coup is not out of the question. If I were the CIA station chief, I’d release those photos of Karzai toking on a hashish pipe. And if I were Karzai, I’d send my resume to Gucci, and get out of town fast. Because "the chicest man on the planet" wouldn’t do well at Bagram.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The writer misses one critical point in this article.

There were two outcomes to have come out of the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

The first was control over the drug trade, which the Taliban had nearly obliterated.. That mission has been accomplished to the point where the Russian government is stating that there is an "undeclared war" against it because of all the cheap, illegal heroin which is flooding their country from Afghanistan (when you control the drug traffic, you control where it winds up)

The second goal, which is proving to be painfully illusive 9 years on in this war, is the "pacification" of Afghanistan to the point where pipelines can be installed with which to control Eurasian oil.

This is the reason that the US and NATO leadership have their collective knickers in a twist; if Karzai survives this attempt at reconciliation, he may well demand that US and NATO leave far earlier that they want to, without those pipelines being built.

Should that scenario unfold, it puts the US precisely back in the position it was in 9 years ago, when as late as August of 2001, the US was negotiating with the Taliban for the rights to the pipeline routes, but thought that the price the Taliban was demanding was "too high."

I stole IDF documents to expose West Bank war crimes, Anat Kam says

Classified documents reveal that the Israel Defense Forces had committed war crimes in the West Bank, Anat Kam, the former soldier indicted for espionage over an alleged theft of top secret material, told the court earlier in the year, according to police documents released allowed for publication Monday at the request of Haaretz.

In the newly released material documenting court hearings surrounding Kam's arrest, the journalist and former IDF soldier said that the motivation behind her removal of sensitive military material was to expose "certain aspects of the IDF's conduct in the West Bank that I thought were of interest to the public."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was a brave and honest thing for this young woman to do, which is why she will probably spend the rest of her life behind bars, rotting in an Israeli prison.

'Israel may drag US into new war'

Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri has expressed fears that Israel may attempt to involve the US in a new aggression against Lebanon or the Gaza Strip.

"Because of Israel's current disagreements with the US, the Israeli side could get the US involved in what is a 'crazy move,'" Berri was quoted as saying by Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat .

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri is correct, but he is looking at the wrong country; Israel could well start a war against Iran, but could only finish it with the help of the US.

And that could potentially turn into a world war, with Russia and China aiding Iran militarily.

Netanyahu: Iran wants to destroy Israel and the world remains silent

"Iran's leaders are barreling toward developing a nuclear weapon, and openly declaring their desire to destroy Israel. In the face of these repeated pledges to remove the Jewish state from the earth, we encounter in the best case a limp reaction, and even that is fading," he said. "We do not hear the necessary rejection, no harsh denunciation, no outcry. The world is carrying on as usual, and there are those who direct their fire at us, at Israel."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu: the "big lie" technique won't work any more, Bibi - get over it!

1. Iran's leadership never said that they would remove the Jewish state from the earth; that's a completely idiotic mistranslation from Farsi, and you know it.

2. Iran is a signatory to the NNPT (unlike Israel), and therefore must submit to its nuclear program being inspected consistently by the IAEA.

4. So far, there has been zero reporting of any nuclear materials gone missing, or enrichment beyond what is necessary to fuel a power plant.

5. The Iranian leadership may be many things, but it is not stupid. Iran hasn't initiated a war in two hundred years.

6. They understand that any military action against Israel will result its being bombed out of existence by the US.

7. Even if they are planning to develop a bomb (which is still very doubtful), who can blame them, after the magnificent object lesson the US gave Iran and the world by invading a nation which did not have a nuclear deterrent, that nation having been Iraq?

Obama Hosts Unprecedented International Nuclear Summit

President Obama says terrorists obtaining a nuclear weapon is the "single biggest threat" to U.S. security.

Memo to President Obama: the US government itself is the "single biggest threat" to US security.

Between waging immoral and illegal wars abroad, going broke trying to fund them,looting the taxpayers at every turn, and having turned this into the United States of Corporatocracy, this government is by far the most grave threat to this nation's security and stability.

Gates: Wikileaks Vido 'Painful to See', But Won't Have 'Lasting' Impact.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates acknowledged on Sunday that leaked video showing the 2007 killing by U.S. Army personnel of a gathering of civilians in Iraq is "unfortunate" and "painful to see." But he did not think it would have a long-term affect on U.S. operations in that country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to US Defense Secretary Gates: think again, sir!

These images are already seared into the memories of millions of people, around the world, and there is nothing you can do to take those images away.

US airbase in Kyrgyzstan resumes full operations: embassy

The US airbase in Kyrgyzstan vital to military operations in Afghanistan has resumed full operations, the US embassy said Monday, after unrest caused the suspension of troop transport flights.

2. One has to wonder just what the US promised both the leadership of Kyrgyzstan and Russia to enable it to keep the base here open.

Risk of Japan going bankrupt is real, analysts say

Greece's debt problems may currently be in the spotlight but Japan is walking its own financial tightrope, analysts say, with a public debt mountain bigger than that of any other industrialised nation.

Public debt is expected to hit 200 percent of GDP in the next year as the government tries to spend its way out of the economic doldrums despite plummeting tax revenues and soaring welfare costs for its aging population.

Japan "can't finance" its record trillion-dollar budget passed in March for the coming year as it tries to stimulate its fragile economy, said Hideo Kumano, chief economist at Dai-ichi Life Research Institute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One by one, the global economic dominoes continue to fall.

And the question is, for thinking Americans, when the US will simply collapse of its own indebtedness?!? As reported at:


The US national debt, as of today, is:

$ 1 2 , 8 4 1 , 5 0 5 , 3 0 5 , 6 2 6 . 0 6

That's twelve trillion, eight hundred forty-one billion, five hundred-five million, three hundred-five thousand, six hundred twenty-six dollars and change.

And with interest on this debt, it is rising by the second.

Provocateurs Openly Announce Plans To Stage Tea Party Violence

With the establishment desperate to engender and exploit violence which will be used to demonize the Tea Party movement as an extremist mob, so-called anarchists are now openly declaring their intentions to pose as Tea Party members and stage violence in order to discredit populist grass roots organizations.

As we warned last week, leading anarchist groups have announced that they plan to “crash” the nationwide Tea Party protests on April 15, a promise that should not be taken lightly given the proven history of such organizations being infiltrated and steered by authorities to provocateur pointless mayhem and violence that serves as a justification for oppressing peaceful protest groups.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Levin? Makes sense. If the people of the United States stop paying taxes, Israel loses their free lunch! So Israel's supporters (and all other parasites and leeches) will be opposed to the Teas Party.

Report: Church abuse claims are 'Zionist attack', bishop says

A retired Italian bishop has sparked a furious row after quotes attributed to him suggested claims of sexual abuse in the Catholic church are a Jewish conspiracy, a British newspaper reported on Monday.

A website quoted Giacomo Babini, emeritus bishop of Grosseto, as saying he believed a "Zionist attack" was behind the criticism, considering how "powerful and refined" the criticism is, the Guardian daily reported.

Babini has denied the comments, which follow a series of statements from Catholic churchmen alleging the existence of plots to weaken the church and Pope Benedict XVI.

Pathetic. Just pathetic.

The Geminoid F brings us a step closer to Bladerunner

The scarily realistic Geminoid F, made with help from robot maker Kokoro, looks just like a twentysomething Japanese woman. The android sports extremely realistic hair and a set of teeth which apparently enable it to produce the most realistic robot smile yet. The android is operated by remote control and can mimic the exact facial expressions and speech of its operator. All of its electronics are hidden inside the android itself, and it can be charged and powered by a standard household electricity supply.

Thanks to everyone who is donating. Many donations have come in from anonymous benefactors using money orders with no identification and no return address. I send thanks to all donors, electronic for electronic and paper for paper (if you did not get a thank you note, blame the post office) but I wanted to make a public thank you to the people who wished to remain concealed, and I fully understand why. So, thanks you to all you unsung Rivero's Rangers out there! Together we may yet stop this rush to war before we wake up with a mushroom cloud in our front yards!

Washington D.C. Lockdown

The Nuclear Summit is about to start in Washington D.C. and a strip of D.C. between the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the White House is on lockdown.

One rumored item on the agenda of the Summit is an attempt to launch a program to get Israel to destroy its nuclear missiles. This is why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahou cancelled plans to attend the Summit.The cancellation by Netanyahou has led some media outlets to report that Israel is boycotting the event. This is not true. I have it on good authority from a person intimately familiar with the comings and goings in the U.S. of top level Israeli officials that Netanyahou has sent a Deputy to the meetings.

Onerous New DOE Regulations Headed Our Way

The announcement from DOE Secretary Steven Chu says that these changes will save 164 Million Metric Tons of CO2, from entering the atmosphere due to our use of more efficient electrical appliances.

Damn that's a lot of CO2............. Or is it?

There's a total of roughly 800Gt (Gigatons) (798Gt actually) of CO2 in our atmosphere, of which roughly 27Gt comes from man's activities.

164M (Million) Mt (Metric Tons) over 10 years = 16.4MMt per year = 1.6% of 1Gt = 1.5 billionths of 1% of the atmosphere every year.

And this is going to cost us how many billions of dollars?

If mainstream medicine really works, why are Americans so unhealthy?

Did you ever wonder why such an alarmingly high percentage of Americans are obese, diabetic, depressed and suffering from cancer, heart disease, kidney disorders and skin problems? Now consider the fact that Americans pay more per capita for health care than any other nation in the world. Americans pay the highest prices, by far, for medications, medical imaging scans, blood work, surgeries, chemotherapy and hospital stays. And yet what does America have to show for it? The most universally diseased population in the world -- and a nation on the verge of bankruptcy caused in part by mainstream medicine.

''We brought forward between 1992 and 1998 more than 300 complaints from victims of abuse committed by priests, but only 15 ended up with admissions'' of guilt, Father Rick Deville told the Flemish dailies De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad yesterday.

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has reached a new level in its discredited War on Terror just when we thought it could not sink any lower.

And what makes this even more tragic is that the new depths being plumbed are on the express orders of Barack Obama … a US President who promised the world so much and has delivered on so little. That he is a Nobel Peace Prize recipient makes this all the more shocking. President Obama has authorized the assassination of a Muslim scholar by the name of Anwar al-Awlaki. But what is really breath-taking is that Al-Awlaki is an American citizen, born in Las Cruces in the state of New Mexico of Yemeni parents

Hawaii retreat center revenue challenged on tax-exempt status

Both tax-exempt organizations, the Roman Catholic Church of Hawaii and the Sisters of Sacred Hearts, use the centers for internal purposes, including housing for religious personnel and staff offices.

But both for years also have rented meeting and lodging space on the properties to outside organizations for short retreats or conferences, raising questions on whether such operations are considered commercial and should be subject to taxation.

The decisions to investigate were made last week after the Hawai'i Citizens for the Separation of State and Church, a loosely organized group of individuals, filed complaints with the city, state and federal governments over possible tax evasion by the two retreat operations.

A bailout for news?

The historic way of funding great journalism in America — bankrolling newsrooms through the sales of real estate, auto, retail and employment ads — is disintegrating.

If you want to know what life in the Third World is like, just ask Lisa Pack, an administrative assistant who works in the roads and transportation department in Jefferson County, Alabama. Pack got rudely introduced to life in post-crisis America last August, when word came down that she and 1,000 of her fellow public employees would have to take a little unpaid vacation for a while. The county, it turned out, was more than $5 billion in debt — meaning that courthouses, jails and sheriff's precincts had to be closed so that Wall Street banks could be paid.

This Shadow Government, with Mossad as its co-conspirator, planned and executed 9/11, the (Rumsfeld/Zack) Anthrax attacks, and all that followed. What the Christian Zionists never expected was that Israel would use these same events to blackmail their co-conspirators, which serves to explain why the US Government is so actively engaged in the cover-up of 9/11, while allowing Israel to do as it pleases in Gaza, Lebanon, and coming soon – Iran.

Tyranny of the Majority, Corporate Welfare, and Complicity

After including earned-income tax credits, the bottom 60% of households paid less than 1% of all Federal income taxes, and the households between 60% and 80% paid 13%.

The top 20% paid 68.7% of all Federal taxes: Income taxes, Social Security and Medicare, excise and corporate taxes. The top 10% of households paid fully 72.7% of all Federal income tax, the top 5% paid 60.7%, and the top 1% paid 38.8%.

In essence, this is a vote-buying scheme by the Status Quo: the top 1% control the policies of the State in alliance with the State's own Elites, and together they buy the complicity of the bottom 60% to passively accept their dominance.

Gulf War veterans 'refused war pensions'

Hundreds of sick Gulf War veterans are still having to go through drawn-out and distressing appeals to get war pensions, a charity said today.

Those left ill from the 1990-1991 conflict must seek compensation for each individual symptom because the Ministry of Defence refuses to recognise "Gulf War Syndrome" as a medical condition, according to the National Gulf Veterans and Families Association (NGVFA).

Many give up after repeatedly having their disabilities challenged and their claims rejected, the group said.

Afghan fury after Nato troops open fire on bus full of civilians, killing four people

International troops opened fire on a bus carrying Afghan civilians today, killing four people and setting off anti-American protests by furious locals.

Witnesses said the bus, which was travelling in Kandahar province's Zhari district, had pulled over to allow an American convoy to pass when gunfire broke out.

The shooting left another 18 people wounded, 12 of whom were taken to a military hospital.

Tens of thousands of British women warned their breast implants could rupture

Nearly fifty thousands women in the UK have been warned by health chiefs that their breast implants could explode.

The best-selling silicone implant made by the French firm Poly Implant Prothese (PIP), are thought to be twice as likely to rupture.

A government health agency is urging women with this type of implant to contact their plastic surgeons to consider having the implants removed.

They run the risk of developing toxic shock syndrome or gangrene if the implants explode.

FRESNO, California -- Tea Party attendee, James, speaks his mind on martial law, endless war, second amendment rights, the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other pertinent topics at the Fresno Tea Party held in Chukchansi Park Stadium on April 10, 2010.

When asked about martial law and the possibility of martial law occurring in America, James responded, "I'll tell you what, I think martial law should be put in the hands of the militia. How about that? That's exactly where it should be."

Is the World's Second Biggest Economy On the Ropes?

Iceland has around the 101st biggest economy.

Dubai is also tiny.

Greece is somewhat bigger, with the 27th biggest economy.

When Iceland, Dubai and Greece tanked, that was horrible ... but not catastrophic.

Portugal - the 37th biggest economy - may be next. It would be horrible if Portugal tanks.

But Spain is also in real trouble. As the 9th biggest economy, a default by Spain could be major.

But none of these are in the same ballpark as Japan - the world's 2nd biggest economy. Only the U.S. is bigger.

So it is newsworthy that S & P cut Japan's sovereign credit rating in January.

British scientific expedition discovers world's deepest known undersea volcanic vents

A British scientific expedition has discovered the world's deepest undersea volcanic vents, known as 'black smokers', 3.1 miles (5000 metres) deep in the Cayman Trough in the Caribbean. Using a deep-diving vehicle remotely controlled from the Royal Research Ship James Cook, the scientists found slender spires made of copper and iron ores on the seafloor, erupting water hot enough to melt lead, nearly half a mile deeper than anyone has seen before.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If one does not know exactly how many undersea vents and volcanoes there are, then one cannot accurately calculate how much heat and CO2 these undersea sources add to the oceans. It therefore follows that one cannot possibly have a meaningful figure for the human contribution to ocean temperatures and CO2.

Your Taxes and War

If you’re an average American taxpayer, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have, since 2001, cost you personally $7,334, according to the "cost of war" counter created by the National Priorities Project (NPP). They have cost all Americans collectively more than $980,000,000,000. As a country, we’ll pass the trillion dollar mark soon. These are staggering figures and, despite the $72.3 billion that Congress has already ponied up for the Afghan War in 2010 ($136.8 billion if you add in Iraq), the administration is about to go back to Congress for more than $35 billion in outside-the-budget supplemental funds to cover the president’s military and civilian Afghan surges.

It's All Over But the Shouting

Congress finally passed health care reform in late March before finally abandoning Washington for two weeks. Lawmakers return this week. And no one quite knows what they’re going to do between now and the end of the year.

“I’m not really sure,” responded one senior staffer when I asked what was on tap when Congress returned to session.

“Are you kidding me?” said another. “I still haven’t recovered from health care.”

“I’m golfing,” replied another.

It may be April. But in Congress, the calendar may as well read December. Because almost anything of consequence for the 111th Congress is in the books.

The order's language came ambiguous and far from defining liabilities and rights of each group of residents in the West Bank.

Haaretz said: "The order's language is both general and ambiguous, stipulating that the term infiltrator will also be applied to Palestinian residents of Jerusalem, citizens of countries with which Israel has friendly ties (such as the United States) and Israeli citizens, whether Arab or Jewish.

"All this depends on the judgement of Israel defence forces commanders in the field."

12 Year-Old and Mother Anti-War Protestors Arrested in Iowa Senator's Office

Twelve-year-old war protester Frankie Hughes was arrested late Wednesday for trespassing after she allegedly refused to leave U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin's Des Moines office.

On Thursday morning, the girl's mother - who was standing outside Harkin's office when Frankie was taken into custody - was ticketed for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

"How crazy," said Frankie, who learned after school that her mother had been charged. "She didn't contribute to anything. I did what was in my heart. No one suggested I do what I did."

Iranian Spy for CIA: "Weak West" Will Cause War with Iran

The American-led "engagement” policies towards Iran is going to result in the very war it wants to prevent, according to an Iranian CIA spy. He says the only way to prevent a possible nuclear war with Iran is to attack the country now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this gentleman actually exists, or is a useful "imaginary friend" to the creators of pro-Israeli, anti-Iran, propaganda.

And please note: this "author" is distressingly intent on having American soldiers fight, get maimed for life, or killed, to "neutralize" yet another of Israel's alleged existential threats in the region; not Israeli soldiers!

Think Tank Speculates War Could Break Out with Syria

The increasingly open threats made by Syrian leaders and members of the Hizbullah terrorist group in Lebanon have led analyst David Schenker of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA) think tank to warn that war may be on the horizon. In addition, he noted, a future war could include Syria and not only its proxy Hizbullah: in February, Syrian leaders said Syria would not “sit idly by” in case of another war with Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Israel is itching for any war through which to expand its territory.

Papal Indulgences

My favorite moment of the whole child abuse scandal in the Catholic Church was when Father Klaus Malangré suggested that Peter Hullermann, the redoubtable German pedophile priest, might be sent to work in a girls' school. No boys, no molestation. Or, in churchly language, no occasion of sin. Problem solved! Plus, the good father would spend his life warding off female cooties. Malangré must not have heard about priests--and they do exist--who abused both male and female children. Nor had he learned the lesson of Watergate: the cover-up is worse than the crime.

If the world is to transform, faith in politicians offering hope and change is a recipe for disappointment. Ask almost anyone who voted for Obama. Change happens through millions of acts of rebellion and mutual aid, not through faith in one great leader. What's depressing about this whole Maitreya thing is that it is a sign that we've given up on ourselves, that we need to depend on The One rather than finding the means to fix our own problems directly.

"Nobody should be invading our homes, or coming into our homes unless they have some sort of cause and then they're supposed to have a warrant. That's it. Period," said Nightingale when asked about government invasion of privacy. "If they're doing more than that, it's unconstitutional."

"The federal government, first of all, is not supposed to have power over the state and the state is not supposed to have power over individuals. Individual rights first," Nightingale said.

Whether Kissinger played a role in blocking the delivery of the warning against assassination to the governments of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay has long been a topic of controversy.

President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed. Now the lie goes very deep and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and it would be very important that every American knows what that method is.

Metal$ are in the pits

There is no silver lining to the activities of JPMorgan Chase and HSBC in the precious-metals market here and in London, says a 40-year veteran of the metal pits.

The banks, which do the Federal Reserve's bidding in the metals markets, have long been the government's lead actors in keeping down the prices of gold and silver, according to a former Goldman Sachs trader working at the London Bullion Market Association.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The purveyors of pretty printed pieces of paper (stocks, fiat currencies, etc.) have clear motive to depress the prices of tangible assets such as silver and gold, in order to keep the suckers buying and selling the PPPoP, which can be inflated, and "Enronized" on demand.

Pope 'has no UK arrest immunity'

Atheist authors Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens proposed the action against the Pontiff for his handling of child abuse scandals in the Catholic church.

The writers' solicitor Mark Stephens said applications will be made to courts in the UK and the International Criminal Court for a warrant for Pope Benedict XVI's arrest.

His likely defence would be be that he is immune from prosecution during his visit to Britain in September, according to the lawyer.

Mr Stephens said: "The courts will examine the claim of immunity. I believe that an English court would reject it. If the Pope was here on a state visit, ordinarily a head of state would have sovereign immunity. What I believe is that because he's not a sovereign, not a head of state, he's not entitled to the defence."

The movie, Green Zone, covers our attack on Iraq with considerable accuracy. The film clearly outlines how, in order to justify an illegal invasion, an American government created “false flag” intelligence. Despite any crimes Saddam may have committed, currently America has caused more civilian deaths in Iraq than Saddam in 30 years, the invasion was illegal and any and all involved in its planning, according to international law, should face tribunals. Those who were misled are innocent. Those who did the misleading are war criminals, exactly like Saddam. Our war to save Iraq from a brutal dictator was simply cover for a bank robbery and some “dirty work” that needed to be done, work that opened the door to country after country being destabilized.

As usual, all of the sources are unnamed except for a mysterious Mr. Khalid, a "former governor" who is now "gone" and apparently exists only in the memory of unnamed Canadian soldiers.

The final couple of paragraphs contain some of the most blatant blarney you'll ever read; it attempts to intimate that it was true-blue Canadian politeness that kept our military from knowing what brutal things those savage and ignorant Afghans were doing to our prisoners

Iran says new US policy a nuclear threat

Iran's supreme leader said Sunday that President Barack Obama has "implicitly threatened" his country with nuclear weapons in a newly outlined U.S. policy and Tehran said it intends to file a formal complaint with the U.N.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters in Iran, said Obama's language was "disgraceful" and proof the U.S. cannot be trusted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In this instance, Khamenei is absolutely correct, unfortunately.

The war drums are beating more loudly and vigorously for a US attack against Iran, with Israel as its cheerleader, eager and anxious for American kids to fight, get maimed and die to protect Israel from its alleged "existential threats" in the Middle East- which means all of its neighbors!

Ratzinger: "Bishop, take your time with that pedophile"

The priest, convicted of tying up and abusing two young boys in a California church rectory, wanted to leave the ministry.

But in 1985, four years after the priest and his bishop first asked that he be defrocked, the future Pope Benedict XVI, then a top Vatican official, signed a letter saying that the case needed more time and that "the good of the Universal Church" had to be considered in the final decision, according to church documents released through lawsuits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If a "rogue" Archbishop ordains women or married men to the priesthood , Pope Benny The Rat will cut this guys nuts off in a hearbeat.

But, a dangerous paedophile who tied up two children in his rectory and molested them deserves "parental care"!

Home Free: No Worries for Dr K as Complicity is Revealed

Poor old Henry Kissinger. All that botheration, all those lies, all the years of gut-churning anxiety about scandal, even prosecution -- and for what? Mere complicity in state murder of foreigners carried out by a foreign government? Why, nowadays, we have U.S. presidents openly ordering the murder of American citizens, and nobody bats an eye. There is no scandal, no prosecution -- there is not even any debate. It's just a fact of life, ordinary, normal, unchangeable: the sun rises in the east, cows eat grass, rain is wet, American presidents murder people. What's the big deal?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at this man and his utterly criminal past, one has to come to the uncomfortable and Orwellian realization that the Nobel Peace Prize tends to go to some of the worst perpetrators of mass murder on this planet, including the award of that prize to America's current President.

Gaza’s fuel and electric shortage threatens repeat sewage tsunami

For the past week, an average of 2 million gallons of sewage water per day has poured from the plant’s cement-reinforced sewage treatment "lagoons" (see picture) into two of the three overflow cesspools, according to plant operators. As a result of yesterday’s electric blackout, 6.5 million gallons was redirected to the cesspools in a single day. Water levels appear to be about three feet high in some places. The third and largest cesspool, which contained more than 660 million gallons of treated sewage before it was drained in August of 2009, remains empty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli government is keenly aware of what water-borne illnesses can do to a population, particularly to children and the medically fragile elderly.

This is simply one component in Israel's multi-layered "Final Solution" for Gazan Palestinians, which will end in complete Israeli annexation and forced expulsion of all Gazan Palestinians.

IDF order will enable mass deportation from West Bank

A new military order aimed at preventing infiltration will come into force this week, enabling the deportation of tens of thousands of Palestinians from the West Bank, or their indictment on charges carrying prison terms of up to seven years.

Until now, Israeli civil courts have occasionally prevented the expulsion of these three groups from the West Bank. The new order, however, puts them under the sole jurisdiction of Israeli military courts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so it begins; the complete annexation of Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, coupled with forced expulsion of Palestinians from their homes forever.

The Inflicted Wounds of America's War Machine: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Infertility

Since 20 percent live sperm is considered to be the beginning of infertility, Israel will be sterile in less than 10 years at this rate of decline. The estimated 7 million Israeli Jews will have no more children soon after that. This catastrophic development has already occasioned legislative hearings in Israel’s Knesset. The hearings were covered by Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Israeli sperm concentration is just an example of what is happening to human sperm all over the Middle East and Central Asia, by the choice and force of will of successive U.S. presidents.

The American war machine has consequences. PTSD is just one of them. The poison gas cannot be contained, undone or recalled. There is no antidote; there is no cure. There is no escape.

As detective senior constable Glen McNamara, he was stationed at Kings Cross in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was a time and a place that was to become notorious in the history of the NSW Police.

There he found corrupt officers who routinely protected criminals in return for cash. But unlike many of his colleagues at the time who allowed themselves to be corrupted or at least turned a blind eye, McNamara didn't buy into the dirty-cop culture.

On his own initiative, he began gathering evidence to expose the flourishing criminality – and was then betrayed by the people around him he trusted most.

The $2.3 Trillion State and Local Government Debt Monster – California Pension Systems on Unsupportable Path with $500 Billion Projected Shortfall. CalPERS, CalSTRS, and UCRS.

Much of the focus on government debt over the past few years has revolved around the federal government. No doubt, this is a stunningly large amount. Yet the government has the ability to finance this debt through the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve with a buffet of choices. You have direct bailouts to Wall Street, quantitative easing, and systematically dismantling the U.S. dollar. But one issue that is rising to the top is that of state and local government debt. States do not have the ability to print money at the whim of any central banker. And the state and local government debt market is up to a whopping $2.3 trillion. At this point, trillion is the new billion.

Occupied Washington DC

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

Of course, that would be logical.

As the Guardian reported today, interim opposition spokesperson and former Kyrgyz ambassador the United States, Roza Otunbayeva, said of the outgoing president: "His business is finished in Kyrgyzstan … in essence people were simply fed up with the previous regime, and with its repressive, tyrannical and abusive behaviour. They want to build democracy here."

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

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

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

How the CIA is Welcoming Itself Back Onto American University Campuses

For those who lived through the dramatic revelations of the congressional inquiries in the 1970s, documenting the CIA’s routine involvement in global and domestic atrocities, it made sense to construct institutional firewalls between an agency so deeply linked with these actions and educational institutions dedicated to at least the promise of free inquiry and truth. But the last dozen years have seen retirements and deaths among academics who had lived through this history and had been vigilant about keeping the CIA off campus; furthermore, with the attacks of 9/11 came new campaigns to bring the CIA back onto American campuses.

Richard Dawkins: I will arrest Pope Benedict XVI

RICHARD DAWKINS, the atheist campaigner, is planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”.

Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, have asked human rights lawyers to produce a case for charging Pope Benedict XVI over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.

The pair believe they can exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, when he visited Britain in 1998.

Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, threatens to block Nato offensive

The president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, has cast doubt over Nato’s planned summer offensive against the Taliban in the southern province of Kandahar, as more than 10,000 American troops pour in for the fight.

Karzai threatened to delay or even cancel the operation — one of the biggest of the nine-year war — after being confronted in Kandahar by elders who said it would bring strife, not security, to his home province.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Between Karzai's reluctance and the potential loss of the Manas air base in Kyrgyzstan, the US is losing control over Afghanistan!

A lawsuit filed last week accuses Johnson & Johnson of conspiring with pharmaceutical consultant Omnicare in an effort to push J&J drugs on nursing home residents, and violating federal Medicaid laws in the process.

Ex-soldier suffers with medical maladies, red tape

THE PAST, for Sgt. Brian Smith, is filled with oppressive heat, ear-ringing mortar rounds and midnight convoys inching along dangerous Iraqi roads.

The future will bring headaches, dizziness or worse from his two brain aneurysms, and medical bills approaching six figures.

Unless something can be worked out between the many state and federal agencies dealing with his disability case, he won't have money for those bills, let alone rent or groceries

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single one of our Vets should be receiving the same level of care that members of the US Congress get; they have earned it.

Youngsters maimed by discarded bombs face dark futures in Iraq

It was just five years ago that Murtaja Hussein was playing football next to his house, in a farming village south of Baghdad, when he found the lump of metal that would change his life forever.

I’ve tried to kill myself, but it’s hard to do that without hands and my family always stop me. My mother says she thanks God that I’m still alive but I have no future and have destroyed my family’s future.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what your tax dollars have purchased in Iraq; human suffering and misery almost beyond imagination.

Oh, and that oil which was supposed to pay for the costs of the invasion and occupation?!?

As reported on 19 December, 2009 at:


"U.S. Companies Shut Out as Iraq Auctions Its Oil Fields"

"Rather than giving foreign oil companies control over Iraqi reserves, as the U.S. had hoped to do with the Oil Law it failed to get the Iraqi parliament to pass, the oil companies were awarded service contracts lasting 20 years for seven of the 10 oil fields on offer — the oil will remain the property of the Iraqi state, and the foreign companies will pump it for a fixed price per barrel"

America Blowback in Kyrgyzstan

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

For He Has Sinned

While the nuns and Mother Teresa milled about, McGuire closed the door to his room and asked his favored altar boy to join him, in his cot, for a nap. The boy lay down. The priest lay on the outside of the narrow bed and then reached across the boy's body and into his pants.
