India tightens security after Israel issues travel warning

India said on Tuesday it was increasing security to thwart possible militant strikes in the country days after Israel and Australia issued warnings to its citizens to avoid travelling to Indian cities.

Israel and Australia have issued travel warnings to its citizens based on intelligence inputs on militant strikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anything that happens in India will most likely be blamed on Pakistani militants.

As reported on 19 September in


"Amid indication that a few infiltrators might have entered into this side under cover firing given by Pakistan Rangers in the wake of two incidents along the international border in Jammu and Kashmir, India on Friday lodged a strong protest with Pakistan and put its border guarding force on full alert."

The Road to Zelaya's Return: Money, Guns and Social Movements in Honduras

Nearly three months after being overthrown by a violent military coup, Honduran President Manuel Zelaya has returned to Honduras. "I am here in Tegucigalpa. I am here for the restoration of democracy, to call for dialogue," he told reporters. The embattled road to his return tested regional diplomacy, challenged Washington and galvanized Honduran social movements.

Palestinian man killed as he walked near a settlement fence near Bethlehem

Dozens of Palestinians have been killed near Israeli settlements only because they walk near the fence of the settlement, most of them were shepherds.

State police warn of 'Grandma scam' after Wilson woman loses nearly $6,000

The scam has been around for years, Gibbons said, but has resurfaced lately, and is being reported coast to coast. The accounts are similar. Montreal also has popped up in other cases. Police have said they are unsure how the criminals are getting the names of seniors.

Gibbons said law enforcement agents are investigating the case in Niagara County and three or four similar cases in Erie County. The U. S. Secret Service also is involved.

“We’ve put a request in to Interpol. The money was actually picked up in London, and we are dealing with [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] out of Canada, since a lot of these scams originate out of Canada,” Gibbons said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are some really scummy low-lifes out there walking around on two legs.

U.S. says Pakistan, Iran helping Taliban

Taliban fighters in Afghanistan are being aided by "elements of some intelligence agencies," Army Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal wrote in a detailed analysis of the military situation delivered to the White House earlier this month.

McChrystal went on to single out Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency as well as the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as contributing to the external forces working to undermine U.S. interests and destabilize the government in Kabul.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Pakistan and Iran are up next in the rotation for a US invasion!

Terror Arrest Sparks Gov't Warning on Mass Transit

"Today the US Government reported that blah blah blah terror blah blah blah blah blah blah Muslim blah blah blah blah bomb blah blah blah blah higher taxes blah blah blah blah terror blah blah blah!!"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government is desperate to prove that We The People still need them, when in fact it is clear that the US Government has become the biggest impediment to a peaceful and prosperous life in this country. Being made up mostly of lawyers, the US Government does not know how to actually do anything useful, the states take care of the roads and schools. All the US Government does is confiscate our money to give to Wall Street, to Israel, and to pay for the bombs dropped on brown people Israel does not like.

Most Americans understand that the cost/benefit of the US Federal Government is pretty dismal. The Feds understand that, so they are trying to come up with an endless series of monsters scary enough to drive us back into their control. "Please, Mr. Government," or so the plan goes, "Save us from ..." and insert the current villain, whether it is the dead guy, global warming cooling, when pigs fly flu, or waxy yellow buildup in the corners of the kitchen floor.

And of course the biggest manufactured villain (aside from Osama Bin Goldstien) is Al Qaeda, which usually turns out to be either CIA or Mossad wearing a cheap costume.

WE have seen an endless string of these news worthy arrests followed by a very quiet admission that the case was really just another informant who got carried away and the suspects get released with a warning that they better damn well not talk with the media!

Two weeks ago the NYPD responded to another FBI assurance of pending terror attack by trying to arrest the suspected terrorists, only to bring down an FBI false-flag operation!

And yesterday, much to the FBI's embarrassment ( and ensuing spin doctoring) yet another arrested terror suspect was outed as an FBI informant, playing at being a terrorist!

Do you get it yet? The US Government MANUFACTURES the big bad scary things you are all supposed to be afraid of, to create a false need for the government itself.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain, Dorothy!

Europeans warn of new Berlin Wall in Georgia

Prominent Europeans warned Tuesday against a new Berlin Wall going up in Georgia with the "de facto annexation" of two provinces by Russia, in a guest column printed in four newspapers.

The letter by signatories including former Czech president Vaclav Havel, European deputy Daniel Cohn-Bendit and French writers Andre Glucksmann and Bernard-Henri Levy said Europe's integrity was at stake in Georgia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Europe's integrity at stake in Georgia?

Is it possible these people are suffering from collective selective amnesia about who started the war last year, with the surprise attack against Abkhazia and South Ossetia?!? That was Georgia, not Russia!

Sep 22 08:36

Georgia Says Russian Patrols Off Abkhazia Show Military Aims

Georgia’s Foreign Ministry said the start of Russian coast guard patrols in the Black Sea off the separatist Georgian region of Abkhazia shows that Russia’s aim in a 2008 war was to boost its military presence in the area.

The Russian coast guard vessel Novorossiisk began patrolling off Abkhazia, Russian state television reported today, adding that the ship is one of as many of 10 that will be deployed in Abkhaz waters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is simply saying to Georgia, in the clearest way it can, "Hands off Abkhazia!"

If Georgia's leadership thinks that another military kerfuffle with Russia is a great idea, they should really think again.

China in the queue for IMF gold sale

China would consider the purchase to diversify its reserves if the price was right and the potential return was relatively high, the report said, citing an unidentified government source.

Webmaster's Commentary:

CIA Interrogations Likely Damaged Detainees' Brains, Making Them Less Reliable: Report

Prolonged stress from the CIA's harsh interrogations could have impaired the memories of terrorist suspects, diminishing their ability to recall and provide the detailed information the spy agency sought, according to a scientific paper published Monday.

In the paper, Shane O'Mara, a professor at Ireland's Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience, wrote that the severe interrogation techniques appear based on "folk psychology" – a layman's idea of how the brain works as opposed to science-based understanding of memory and cognitive function.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have known from the time of the Catholic Inquisition that torture is never about getting the truth; it is always about getting the tortured individual to confess to a to a specific set of charges.

And unfortunately, the US's institutionalization of torture has had several nasty outcomes.

First, we have for all practical intents and purposes, withdrawn from every human rights treaty to which we have been a signatory.

Second, this country's leadership has lost any moral authority to talk about human rights and human dignity when it tortures.

And third, because when this country uses torture, any captured American, civilian or military, can expect no better treatment as a prisoner of war than we meted out at Abu Ghraib.

Will Americans Obey Government Orders During a Swine Flu Pandemic?

Local authorities are keen to know whether American citizens will obey the government in the event of an H1N1 pandemic and take the swine flu vaccine, amidst growing fears of quarantines and forced injections that have been circulating in recent weeks.

Every sign points to the fact that health authorities are preparing mass vaccination programs and quarantines that could be instituted should the H1N1 virus make a deadlier comeback, which has been all but guaranteed by U.S. health authorities as well as the WHO.

An Islamic insurgent group that controls much of this lawless nation has released a video showing its members vowing allegiance to Osama bin Laden, training in dusty camps and slamming Somalia's U.S.-backed president as a traitor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What an interesting piece of propaganda to get folks in the US angry about these people expressing their fealty to the dead guy!

More ramping up of the "booga-booga" before we go on a major assault here.

"Blood Libel" My Irish Muslim Arse: Israel DOES Murder Children as De Facto Policy

It is hardly "extremist" to use a peaceful boycott to end Israeli apartheid, implement the U.N.'s demand for right of return, and create a state with an equal protection clause -- a close parallel to Mandela's South African solution. (Or do you see Mandela as an "extremist"? and the South African settler colonialist whites giving the indigenous majority equal rights as "genocidal self-destruction"?)

US vows to support Russia's entry into WTO

Washington is eager for Russia's entry into the World Trade Organization, and promised Monday to offer "constructive support" toward that end, US trade representative Ron Kirk said.

Kirk's comments came after he met with Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov in Washington for talks on a range of bilateral and multilateral trade issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder precisely what the "quid pro quo" was for that support.

Clinton rebuffs general's warning on Afghanistan

In the interview, Clinton expressed "respect" for McChrystal's assessment that the United States would likely lose the war in Afghanistan within a year without more US forces.

"But I can only tell you there are other assessments from very expert military analysts who have worked in counter-insurgencies that are the exact opposite," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that Clinton didn't cite any specific experts; it's because she can't.

Any intelligent analysis of the situation on the ground in Afghanistan shows that the US and NATO are losing, big-time. We are just barely holding on to Kabul.

The rest of the country is pretty firmly in the hands of the Taliban.

Our options here are very limited; we can either leave, and negotiate on the oil pipelines to control Eurasian oil with whatever government is left standing, or kill every Afghan still breathing to accomplish that goal.

There is no middle ground here toward accomplishing that objective. If Clinton were the least bit intellectually honest, she would understand that.

15 biggest Wikipedia blunders

A selection of goofs, from celebs eating pets to politicians’ early deaths

Wikipedia's just announced plans to restrict the editing of some of its articles. Under the new system, any changes made to pages of still-living people will have to be approved by an "experienced volunteer" before going online.

The change marks a significant shift in the philosophy of the openly edited user-controlled encyclopedia — and that may not be a bad thing. Here are 15 of the biggest Wikipedia blunders the new editing system might have prevented. These false facts, according to widely published accounts, all appeared on the Wikipedia site at some point.

Arctic Sea Ice Not Following Consensus

From the NSIDC, Sea ice reaches it’s annual minimum extent growing by 370,000 square miles over 2007. An area 1 1/2 times the size of Texas. The recovery is 220,000 sq miles above last year alone yet the NSIDC claims below that the scientists don’t consider this a recovery.

They cite younger thinner ice again and a lower level than the 30 year mean as the reasons this is not a recovery. I have difficulty ignoring a near 400,000 sq mile increase in ice level. So I hope they don’t mind if I do consider it at least a partial recovery.

Daycare Worker Told She’ll Be Fired For Refusing Mandatory Flu Shot

A daycare worker employed by Northeast Health in Albany New York was shocked to be told by her boss that she would be fired if she refused to take a seasonal swine flu shot on the spot. Similar stories have been pouring in to us from all over the country as fears that the upcoming H1N1 shot will also be mandatory continue to grow.

The case emphasizes why President Obama’s claim that the swine flu shot will be voluntary is completely deceptive and misleading. Americans across the country, even those not directly connected with health care work, are being ordered to take the mandated seasonal and swine flu shots or lose their jobs.

Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds' latest interview now online at American Conservative magazine

Sibel Edmonds has a story to tell. She went to work as a Turkish and Farsi translator for the FBI five days after 9/11. Part of her job was to translate and transcribe recordings of conversations between suspected Turkish intelligence agents and their American contacts. She was fired from the FBI in April 2002 after she raised concerns that one of the translators in her section was a member of a Turkish organization that was under investigation for bribing senior government officials and members of Congress, drug trafficking, illegal weapons sales, money laundering, and nuclear proliferation. She appealed her termination, but was more alarmed that no effort was being made to address the corruption that she had been monitoring.

US schools: 1 million homeless students, 40-50 class size, 100,000 laid-off teachers. Had enough?

Unemployment in the US is at Great Depression levels. When discouraged and part-time workers are included, the real unemployment rate (how it used to be counted in official statistics) is over 20%. This has predictable outcomes for our children: one million homeless students, class sizes of 40-50 while 100,000 laid-off teachers sit at home, and our children's growing disgust with American so-called ingenuity and leadership.

The solution to this problem is obvious. Yup. Think with me for a few moments to understand this for yourself.

Exposure to sun 'may help people with cancer survive'

Sunbathing is known to cause skin cancer – but it may also help people survive when they get it, scientists are reporting.

Two studies published yesterday showed that vitamin D produced by the action of the sun on the skin may help improve survival for patients with skin and bowel cancer.

The bizarre finding suggests that health warnings to avoid the sun have been too simplistic. Some exposure to the sun is necessary for health – it is excessive exposure leading to burning of the skin that does the damage.

A research team from the University of Leeds working with the US National Institutes of Health found a high level of vitamin D – suggestive of high sun exposure – protected patients with malignant melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.

N Yemen 'humanitarian disaster'

The Yemeni army blocks aid access to civilians inside the war zone with checkpoints, saying conditions are too unsafe for civilians to move out or aid workers to move in.

And the Saudi government prevents any cross border movement of aid workers or families, fearing Houthi rebels could masquerade as refugees to enter the kingdom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This situation appears to be going from bad to worse.

There are some conversations about the US potentially being brought into a "proxy war" by supporting Yemen's current leadership, which is being opposed by the Houthi rebels.

But unfortunately, we're supporting (as with Batista, as with Pinochet, as with the Shah of Iran) yet another tin-pot dictator one President Seleh, whose 30 year hold on power has made this one of the most corrupt governments in the region.

It seems as though we are supporting him because he's the "thug we know", and at least, we can expect some degree of consistency from him.

Any"thugocracy" (and Yemen certainly seems to be one) is the absolute antithesis of democracy. Remember "democracy", that value we used to wave at other countries intensely, and we'd tell them how wonderful it is?

Unfortunately, that's only true for the US regarding other countries when the election outcome is to its liking.

The Iranian president was reacting to widespread criticisms in the West of his recurring remarks casting doubts over the extent of the Holocaust ™ against the Jews and whether it had actually taken place in the middle of last century as reported by mainstream Western historians.

“The more those of malicious hearts get angry and their voices turn louder the happier we are,” the Iranian President said.

The three men, and a fourth, who was captured a year later in Turkey, wanted to bomb U.S. military and other facilities in Germany, and to kill "as many U.S. soldiers as possible," one of the accused later confessed.

Top 10 Americans for monetary reform: #3: President Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) is the last US President to pay-off the national debt. He did so only after ending the Federal Reserve of his day, the privately-owned Second Bank of the United States. The story is told in the 10-minute video below from the Money Masters. As did Thomas Jefferson, Jackson understood the subversive act and perpetual national debt with banks creating money to lend to the government. He did not understand the positive policy response of the government creating money directly for the payment of public goods and services. Click link for article, live hyperlinks, and video.

If Credit is Not Created Out of Excess Reserves, What Does That Mean?

First, it makes it less likely than most people think that the giant banks will increase the amount of money they're loaning out to individuals and small businesses. Specifically, since loans are made before new infusions of government cash (Kydland and Prescott), there is not a simple cause-and-effect relationship. So the bailouts to the banks will not necessarily encourage them to make more loans. Indeed, the heads of the big banks have themselves said that they won't really increase such loans until the economy fundamentally stabilizes (no matter how much money the government gives them).

Second, if banks won't increase their lending in response to government funds, then that argues against inflation and for continuing stagnation in the economy.

Health Insurance Mandate Includes 'Tax' Despite Obama Denial

President Obama gave ABC News' George Stephanopoulos a stern talking-to Sunday for suggesting that a mandate to buy health insurance would amount to a tax. But the language of the health care reform plan proposed by Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., explicitly labels the penalty attached to the mandate as an "excise tax."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we the people wanted was for the US Government to STOP spending our tax money on wars, Wall Street, and Israel and to spend it on us.

For the government to spend our tax money on wars, Wall Street, and Israel, and THEN expect us to spend our own money on health care and education is the crappy deal we have now!

Sibel Edmonds' revelations of treason and blackmail to be published in American Conservative magazine.

Exclusive: Upcoming Cover Story on Edmonds 'Outs' Video-taped, 'Blackmailed' Dem Congresswoman; Alleges State Dept. Mole at NYTimes; MUCH MORE...

It seems it may be difficult to not notice it, given that Edmonds finally names, on the record, for the first time, in a right-leaning periodical founded by Pat Buchanan, the identity of the currently-serving Democratic Congresswoman she has previously described as married with grown children and having been "hooked" into participating in a lesbian affair with a Turkish foreign agent, as she was secretly video-taped for blackmail purposes.

Edmonds has alluded to the Congresswoman, without naming her, in the past, most notably in her recent sworn and video-taped deposition in the Schmidt v. Krikorian case now pending before the Ohio Election Commission. In that testimony, she did manage to name the names of other Congress members she had previously identified publicly. At the time, we (and virtually no other media outlets) reported on her disclosures that Dennis Hastert (R-IL), Bob Livingston (R-LA), Dan Burton (R-IN), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Stephen Solarz (D-NY) and Tom Lantos (D-CA, deceased), were all participants in blackmail and/or bribery schemes by and with agents of the Turkish government, as she became aware while translating wiretaps in the FBI's counterintelligence division after 9/11. Some of those crimes are said to have resulted in the theft and sale of nuclear weapons technology to allies and enemies alike.

Syria charges Israel with dumping nuclear waste near the Syrian border, in territories occupied by the regime during the 1967 Middle East war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And, ummm, just what is Israel DOING that creates this much nuclear waste?

Should we get the IAEA in there to take a look?

Mobilize! Peltier supporters should create a visible presence at both the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburg and UN Headquarters, NYC... signs, t-shirts, banners... for the eyes and ears of world leaders, including but not limited to Barack Obama. With so many of the world's leaders present, these will be high-security events. But both events also will be widely covered by the media. Remember that a picture is worth a thousand words. Get the message, "Free Peltier," broadcast throughtout the nation and the world!

Dear President Obama: Blogs Fact-Check and Put Stories in Context Much Better than the Corporate Media

President Obama said yesterday:

I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding.

But as Dan Rather pointed out in July, the quality of journalism in the mainstream media has eroded considerably, and news has been corporatized, politicized, and trivialized.

International Monetary Fund to sell over 403 tons of gold

The International Monetary Fund said its executive board endorsed the sale of 403 tons of gold, worth an estimated 13 billion dollars, to boost its lending capacity to poor countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is a swindle. Loans to anyone in these days of reserve banking are based on money created out of thin air. There is no need for the IMF to sell off a vast reserve of gold.

The purpose of selling a huge mass of gold is to flood the market and drive gold prices back down under $1000 an ounce, in order to chase the suckers back to the Stock Market. Indeed, simply making the announcement of an impending sale will drive futures lower. When the actual sale occurs, the IMF will make less money for the sale than if the IMF simply went ahead and started selling blocks of gold without a prior announcement.

QED the IMF is propping up the stock market.

Obama's elitist arrogance: Buy health insurance, pay fine, or go to jail ?

When is a tax, not a tax? When Obama says so
Rick Moran September 21, 2009
Obama spent much of his ABC interview denying that his health care plan breaks his campaign promise not to raise taxes on the middle class. He insisted that requiring everyone to have health insurance, or face a fine of up to $3,800 per family, is "absolutely not a tax increase." Host George Stephanopoulos pressed Obama so much on the issue that, after Obama accused him of making things up, Stephanopoulos read the definition of "tax" from Merriam-Webster's dictionary. "George, the fact that you looked up [in] Merriam's dictionary the definition of ‘tax increase' indicates to me that you're stretching a little bit right now," Obama replied.

Sliming Goldstone and His Report

Richard Goldstone is not the only Jew manipulated by the world-wide anti-Semitic conspiracy. Throughout the three weeks of the Gaza War, more than 10 thousand Israelis demonstrated against it again and again. They were photographed carrying signs saying “End the massacre in Gaza”, “Stop the war crimes”’ “Israel commits war crimes”, “Bombing civilians is a war crime”. They chanted in unison: “Olmert, Olmert, it is true – They’re waiting in The Hague for you!”

Who would have believed that there are so many anti-Semites in Israel?!

Settling for Failure in the Middle East

The bad news is that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and other defenders of the status quo remain powerful, and they will surely oppose any attempt to pressure Netanyahu. In May, for example, AIPAC drafted a letter warning Obama to "work closely and privately" with Israel. It garnered 329 signatures in the House and 76 names in the Senate. During the August recess, 56 members of Congress visited Israel, and House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters that it was a mistake to make settlement construction the key issue and that there was a "significant difference" between settlements in the West Bank and those in East Jerusalem.

Goldstone Commission Gaza Conflict Findings and Reactions

A UN September 15 press release stated that the Mission concluded that "there is evidence indicating serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law were committed by Israel during the Gaza conflict, and that Israel committed actions amounting to war crimes, and possibly crimes against humanity." Examples included numerous incidents of civilians shot waving white flags while trying to leave their homes for safer locations. Other instances of Palestinians used as human shields, arbitrary arrests, and extra-judicial assassinations in Gaza and the West Bank.

Stuart Littlewood – How Low will Israel Stoop to Win the Propaganda War?

One of The Israel Project's most devious aspects is that it was "born" to look like it was just a lot of caring individuals, young mothers, especially, who wanted to express their beliefs in the way they were convinced that Israel was getting bad press that it didn't deserve, and with their free time and good will, they would be benefitting the cause close to their hearts. As they were just regular folks like you and me, we wouldn't even think of looking at it as a major propaganda or marketing ploy, nor in any way directly related to Israel, which, in fact, it is all of those things and more.

Settlers protest as PM heads to NY

Also in Jerusalem on Monday were right-wing activists Itamar Gvir and Baruch Marzel, who arrived at the protest tent bearing disposable diapers, which they said symbolized the fact that Netanyahu "doesn't have the stomach" to deal with Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Doing this "because God told them to", I imagine.

If Obama ever thought Israel wanted peace over territory, he needs to have a good, hard, long look at the picture in the upper right of this article, and the video (if JP hasn't pulled it: when you go to download you get a "proxy error" message, then a message that the site is "overloaded".

That will tell him everything he needs to know about the real Israeli desire for peace, and what that means: the complete expulsion/extinction of every Palestinian still breathing in the occupied territories.

Israel Still Has Military Option on Iran

Israel has not given up the option of a military response to Tehran's nuclear program, Israel's deputy foreign minister said Monday, after Russia's president said his Israeli counterpart had assured him the country would not attack Iran.

Danny Ayalon was asked by Reuters if the comment by Israeli President Shimon Peres, as reported on Sunday by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, was a guarantee there would be no Israeli strike on Iran. Ayalon replied: "It is certainly not a guarantee. I don't think that, with all due respect, the Russian president is authorized to speak for Israel and certainly we have not taken any option off the table."

US ships arrive in Israel ahead of joint drill

Expectations in Israel are that the US will deploy several Aegis ballistic missile ships - that are capable of intercepting ballistic missiles - in the Mediterranean and Red seas. Israel is already home to the advanced X-Band radar that the Bush administration gave as a farewell gift last October.

Officials said it was possible that the US would decide to leave some systems in Israel following the drill to bolster Israeli defenses in face of the Iranian threat. One possibility under discussion is that Aegis ships, that carry SM3 missile interceptors, will be deployed in the Mediterranean and Red seas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This looks less like a "routine drill" of two highly integrated military forces, and more like a pre-positioning of American military assets in anticipation of an attack on Iran.

Sophie also said that if it weren't for the successful fight to allow "special advocates" to act as intermediaries - and which CSIS and the Ministry of Public Safety fought tooth and nail to prevent, they wouldn't have had a chance. Now that much of the information previously secreted behind so-called "national security" has been reviewed, it looks very much as if the government's case against Harkat is falling to pieces.

Which proves the grave injustice of the Security Certificate, and it's long past time for it to be abolished.

'Messiah' Obama has Crashed to the Ground

Obama “humiliated Israel,” Gilboa said. “Before [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu delivered his historic speech at Bar Ilan University he called Obama in the White House in order to share with him in advance the content of his speech. Barack Obama spoke with him on the phone with his feet propped up on the desk, and the White House sent these photographs to the news media so that the message would be clear: Obama is belittling Netanyahu.”

In all the criticism of Goldstone’s report there has been ABSOLUTELY no rebutting of the facts it contains. It set forth 37 specific incidents and if not rebutted as a matter of fact and law, we must assume them to be true. We must remember that if you can not challenge the facts, attack the messenger.

US assassination in Somalia

The primary destabilising force in the Horn of Africa in general and Somalia in particular is the US. The explosive spread of militarism is rooted in the deepening crisis of US capitalism. As the economic foundations of the United States claim to global hegemony weaken, Washington is driven to ever greater reliance on its residual military superiority. Somalia provides a case study in the immense destruction and human suffering produced by this policy.

autonet - an autonomous internet ¶

Autonet is a project to create a wireless, global internet that can provide more reliability than corporate phone companies by being community based and freely licensed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... and free of government and corporate censorship.

I saw a pilot program along the same lines in San Francisco while I was there working on "The Day After Tomorrow." It was intended to bring wifi internet into poorer neighborhoods where the kids owned wifi laptops but did not have access to broadband internet in their homes. It worked pretty great and was very inexpensive to set the repeaters and nodes up.

It also had the advantage that, like the original internet, there was no way for the government or corporations to block content, so maybe (since FIDnet appears to be defunct now) it is time for patriots to start setting up Autonet and bypass the filters.

‘Tidal wave’ of homeless students hits schools

While the problem may be worse in economically stricken regions like Southern California, where foreclosures and job losses are taking a harsh toll on families, anecdotal evidence suggests it is a growing issue nationally and one with serious ramifications for both a future generation and the overburdened public school system.

Research shows that the turmoil of homelessness often hinders children’s ability to socialize and learn. Many are plagued by hunger, exhaustion, abuse and insecurity. They have a hard time performing at grade level and are about 50 percent less likely to graduate from high school than their peers.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Yemen’s North Hit by Bloodiest Fighting in Years

The Yemeni Army fought back a major offensive by rebels in the northern city of Sadah early Sunday morning, killing dozens of insurgents, witnesses and Yemeni officials said.

The battle appears to have been the boldest rebel attack yet in five weeks of renewed fighting in Yemen’s remote and mountainous Sadah Province, near the border with Saudi Arabia. The Houthi rebels have been clashing intermittently with Yemen’s government for five years, and the latest round of fighting, which erupted last month after a yearlong cease-fire, has been the bloodiest so far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this article conveniently omits telling their readers is that the US is - again (still, yet) propping up another tin-pot dictator, who has been "president" for 30 years, and whose administrations have consistently been hip-deep in graft and corruption. As was the case with Batista in Cuba, and the Shah in Iran, the US government knows that this guy is a class-A thug, but he's "our thug", which makes it OK to keep supporting him with money and weapons.

When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.

Report: IDF, U.S. military to simulate Iran missile strike on Israel

The Israel Defense Forces and the U.S. military will soon hold a training exercise in which they will simulate missile attacks on Israel from Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza, the pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported Sunday.

The exercise will be carried out as part of the ongoing maneuvers between Israel and the United States, the London-based paper said, which will reportedly be the broadest-ever this year.

Israeli Officials Insist Medvedev ‘Misunderstood,’ Still Mull Iran Attacks

Several high profile Israeli officials publicly castigated Russian President Dmitry Medvedev today for the later’s interview on CNN’s GPS with Fareed Zakaria in which President Medvedev claimed to have received assurances from Israeli President Shimon Peres that his nation would not attack Iran.

Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon hit out at the comments, saying President Medvedev “is certainly not authorized to speak for us, and there is no change whatsoever in Israel’s policy.” Ayalon added that Medvedev must have “misunderstood” what Peres said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Medvedev will never forgive nor forget this very public rebuke from Israeli officials.

There was no "misunderstanding"; otherwise, Medvedev would never had made the statement he did about having received assurances from Peres that Israel wouldn't attack Iran.

There are, of course, two ways to look at this.

First, Peres is so confident that they can get the US to do the killing for them, that he doesn't believe Israel will need to attack Iran.

Or secondly, Israel and the US are looking at some way to engineer a "false flag attack" against Israel, blame it on Iran, and make Israel look like the "victim", with no choice but a military response.

Either way, it's just a question of when the bombs start falling.

"Option" mortgages to explode, officials warn

"Payment option ARMs are about to explode," Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller said after a Thursday meeting with members of President Barack Obama's administration to discuss ways to combat mortgage scams.

"That's the next round of potential foreclosures in our country," he said.

Option-ARMs are now considered among the riskiest offered during the recent housing boom and have left many borrowers owing more than their homes are worth. These "underwater" mortgages have been a driving force behind rising defaults and mounting foreclosures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, the driving force behind the rising foreclosures was SENDING OUR JOBS TO OTHER COUNTRIES coupled with the REPEAL OF THE GLASS-STEAGAL ACTREPEAL OF THE GLASS-STEAGAL ACT! !

Both of these lunacies (along with looting trillions from the people to give to the banks to loan back to the people at interest) were committed by the US Federal Government.

PMO: Netanyahu's speech at UN General Assembly will be 'dramatic

The Prime Minister's Office said Monday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech at the United Nations' General Assembly on Thursday will be a "dramatic" speech, directly tackling three main issues: the Iranian nuclear threat, the regional peace process and the recent UN Human Rights' Council-sanctioned Goldstone report on Operation Cast Lead.

Netanyahu will stress the threat a nuclear-armed Iran poses to the entire world and not only to Israel. If Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stays in the hall during the prime minister's speech, he will hear Netanyahu say that his country threatens the entire free world, democracy and the Middle East. Netanyahu is also expected to call for another deadline to cap diplomatic engagement with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what Netanyahu's going to pull for are the sanctions - and a UN sponsored deadline for negotiations - the US and Israel know they can't get against Iran, to attempt to demonstrate that the US and Israel had "really, really tried" to work within the framework of UN activities.

The only open question here is, how long between Netanyahu's address to the UN and the time of some false flag attack against Israel which they're going to blame on Iran?

Sep 21 08:39


One needs to ask; why are Israel and the US insisting that Iran has a nuclear weapons program when neither can provide any evidence whatsoever that it does? And, even if Iran did have a nuclear weapons program, why are Israel and the US so fearful of it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under Article IV of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the US is OBLIGATED to assist Iran in building their nuclear power stations. Obviously, were the US in Iran helping to build the facility there would be no question of a clandestine weapons lab under the reactor like Israel has under Dimona (or the one Israel fraudulently claimed was under Iraq's power station at Osirik).

Since the US has defied that clause of the treaty, we may safely assume that the actual verification of what Iran is building is not a factor here.

At Obama Israel Summit, Netanyahu Will Defend Settlement Growth, Says Aide

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will defend the expansion of West Bank settlements when he meets U.S. President Barack Obama and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday, the premier's spokesman said Monday.

You have never heard the prime minister say he would freeze settlement building. The opposite is true," Nir Hefetz told Army Radio when asked about the tripartite summit, which will take place on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Netanyahu will spit in Obama's face on the settlement issue, yet again, publicly, and tell him it's raining.

And Obama, obsequiously obedient, will continue to sign those checks, and say to Netanyahu, "Absolutely, sir, just whatever you want to do. And by the way, when would you like us to start that attack on Iran?!?"

Apartheid Israel...Our Sacred Cow That Gives No Milk

Why has Israel become so central to our foreign policy and what advantages does the United States gain from the relationship?

Israel is not an important trading partner for the United States, in 20th place, behind Venezuela and Thailand. Israel has no significant natural resources, nor is Israel an important defense ally. None of its neighbors pose any significant threat to the United States or American interests. The attention Israel receives in the United States is completely disproportionate to its strategic, commercial, or political importance. In the sphere of politics the tone and attitude of US politicians sounds as if their careers depend on how they speak of Israel.

US general warns more troops or Afghan 'failure'

The top military commander in Afghanistan warns in a classified document that more US forces are needed within the next year or the mission "will likely result in failure," the Washington Post said Monday.

General Stanley McChrystal, the top US and NATO commander in the country, writes in a grim assessment of the eight-year conflict: "Failure to gain the initiative and reverse insurgent momentum in the near-term (next 12 months) -- while Afghan security capacity matures -- risks an outcome where defeating the insurgency is no longer possible."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in:


'As early as March 15, 2001, when Jane’s, the British international security journal disclosed the fact, the Administration was engaged in a “concerted front against Afghanistan’s Taliban regime.” Confirming the Administration’s intended violence, George Arney of BBC News wrote a story published September 18, 2001: “U.S. Planned Attack on Taliban.” In mid-July of 2001 a “senior American official” told Mr. Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary that “...military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October.”

Finally, on August 2 of 2001, the last pipeline negotiation with the Taliban ended with a terse statement by Christina Rocca of the State Department: “Accept our offer of a carpet of gold or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.”

Then, "only a few weeks before September 11, American diplomats warned of military actions against Afghanistan." (A statement by Mr. Tom Simons, a former ambassador to Afghanistan.)'

The bottom line here is, diplomats around the world knew this was coming. And what were we getting, courtesy of our corporate news agencies, in August of 2001?!? "All Gary Condit, all the time!!

This war has always been about installing the pipelines to control Eurasian oil, and protecting the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

The Bush administration somehow had the collective bone-headedness to believe that a military confrontation in Afghanistan, for all the blood and money it would cost, would somehow be "cheaper" than the price the Taliban wanted for the oil pipelines. I hope their minions told that, very honestly, to every family member or friend of someone who has died in Afghanistan, or has come back hopelessly maimed physically or psychologically for life.

Apparently, during the Bush administration,the Pentagon, White House, and Congress collectively forgot that it was the US which had trained the Taliban in those guerrilla tactics they used so effectively tp cause the Soviet Union to leave Afghanistan.

We are continuing to pay a terrible price for that right now, in blood and money.

So, what do we do now?!?

Our options are very limited: we can leave, and negotiate with whatever government is left standing about the pipelines, or kill every Afghan left standing.

There is no middle ground here.

Earth approaching sunspot records

A solar minimum is when the amount of spots on the sun is at a low and the reverse is true for a solar maximum. The complete solar cycle is about an 11-year process. Perry says the current solar minimum could continue into 2010.

"There's a fair chance it will be a cooler winter than last year," Perry said.

Perry said there is a feeling from some in the scientific community the Earth may be entering into a grand minimum, which is an extended period with low numbers of sunspots that creates cooler temperatures. The year without a summer, which was 1816, was during a grand minimum in 1800 to 1830 when Europe became cooler, Perry said. Another grand minimum was in 1903 to 1913.

More troops needed for Afghan war success

The situation in Afghanistan is growing worse, and without more boots on the ground the U.S. risks failure in a war it’s been waging since September 2001, the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan says in a confidential report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last military commander to actually conquer and hold Afghanistan was Alexander the Great, and he only kept it for three years.

New Airline-Ticket Tax to Aid the Developing World

It sounds like a small step, and many airline travelers, already irritated by compulsory surcharges for fuel, baggage and wider seats, may simply ignore it. But behind this call for a voluntary contribution is an unprecedented worldwide effort to make up a shortfall in official government aid to poor countries — a shortfall exacerbated by the world financial crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a much better idea to help people in the developing world. STOP spending endless money on endless wars murdering them so we can steal their oil.

FLASHBACK - Glass-Steagall Act: The Senators And Economists Who Got It Right

The legislation was the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act (alternatively known as Gramm Leach Bliley), which allowed banks to merge with insurance companies and investment houses. And Dorgan was, at the time, on a proverbial island with his concerns. Only eight senators would vote against the measure -- lionized by its proponents, including senior staff in the Clinton administration and many now staffing President Obama, as the most important breakthrough in the worlds of finance and politics in decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Glass-Steagall act was passed in 1933 because allowing banks to merge with investment houses was seen as a major cause of the Great Depression.

Starting in the 1980s, there was a push for "deregulation", and in 1999, just ten years ago, the provisions that prohibited a bank from owning other financial companies were repealed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

And today we see the result.

Now, Obama wants to use taxpayer money to prop up the corporate media because he is worried that the blogs will "take over" (we are) and "end Democracy" (quite the contrary), but consider this: Have you heard any corporate media place the blame for the economic disaster on the government that caused it?

Or are we still getting "Green Shoots" and "Glimmers of hope" blown up our rear ends by ABCNNBBCBS?

FLASHBACK - How the U.S. Subsidizes Offshoring of Jobs


1. Companies can defer paying taxes on income from foreign subsidiaries ... indefinitely.
2. Tax loopholes, such as moving headquarters to a tax haven.
3. Allowing R&D and other investment tax credits for companies that move manufacturing off shore ... the U.S. doesn't fully benefit.
4. Corporations engage in flawed transfer pricing schemes to avoid U.S. taxes, e.g., they sell components to foreign subsidiary with very low profit markup, and buy back product after manufacture with a very high foreign profit markup.

1 in 4 FHA Mortgage Loans in Foreclosure or Delinquency

The current FHA report is now out for servicing delinquencies and defaults, and as expected it is indeed worse, not better. The administration continues to LIE about claimed “improvements” in the character of home finance.

22.9% of all FHA loans are either delinquent or in foreclosure.

EU Plans Massive Surveillance Panopticon That Would Monitor “Abnormal Behavior”

The European Union is developing a 21st century panopticon, a beast surveillance system that critics describe as “Orwellian,” “sinister,” and “positively chilling,” that would collate data from numerous sources, including surveillance cameras and personal computers, in order to detect “abnormal behavior” across the entire continent.

Obama: We Need To Bail Out Newspapers Or Blogs Will Run The World

Obama yesterday expressed concern at the sorry state of the news industry and said that he will look at a news paper bailout, because otherwise, blogs will take over the world, and that would be a threat to democracy, The Hill reports.

"I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: The blogs are serving the traditional media role of watchdog against government abuse. After decades of consolidating the corporate media into a few hands in CIA control the public media is breaking free again, making it impossible for the government to lie the people into more wars.

But Obama is not paying attention to what is really going on. The corporate media tried to compete with the blogs by spending millions of dollars on slick websites, only to learn that it was never about whiz-bang technology but about getting the truth. What the blogs are doing in the US today was done with FAX machines in the USSR and with simple printing presses in tyrannies from Louie the 16th's to Charles the First, to Mussolini, to Ceausescu. Once the people know they are being lied to by the government, they will seek the truth wherever it is found and in whatever form it takes. At the moment, it is the blogs. Absent a brand new news entity staffed with trusted names from the blog-o-sphere, the TV networks and newspapers will be a long time gaining back the trust they lost by lying to the people about Saddam's "nookular" bombs.

Absent confession of the previous lies and a true act of contrition, this government will never regain the trust of the American people.

Trust arrives on foot but departs on horseback!

Globalization Goes Bankrupt

The draconian security measures put in place to silence dissent in Pittsburgh are disproportionate to any actual security concern. They are a response not to a real threat, but to the fear gripping the established centers of power. The power elite grasps, even if we do not, the massive fraud and theft being undertaken to save a criminal class on Wall Street and international speculators of the kinds who were executed in other periods of human history. They know the awful cost this plundering of state treasuries will impose on workers, who will become a permanent underclass. And they also know that once this is clear to the rest of us, rebellion will no longer be a foreign concept.

Video: Amy Goodman challenged over her 9/11 gatekeeping

She opted to fall back on her textbook answer when dealing with questions about 9/11 by saying she thinks "it needs to be investigated, you know, and we'll continue to look at the issue." Rothe-Kushel then reminded Goodman that it has been investigated and that it was time for her to do her job and have the investigators on her show. After the event, Rothe-Kushel asked David Goodman how best to reach his sister about 9/11 and he responded by saying, "I think you just did." However, almost 6 months later, there still has not been a single mention on Democracy Now of the investigative science and analysis of the 9/11 tragedy. So, Ms. Goodman will continue to be chased with questions about her silence on the seminal story of the semi-new century.

Made in Israel: Obama Decision on Missile Shield

U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama II announces the end of the proposed anti-Iranian missile defense system on September 17, 2009. Obama's decision to abort the missile shield was evidently made in Israel and offered as a quid pro quo by Israeli leaders during their impromptu summits in Russia in the wake of the mysterious hijacking of the Arctic Sea. The U.S. government is also controlled by a gang of Zionist pirates and their agent in the White House - Rahm Emanuel - the son of an Irgun terrorist.

CIA Torturers Running Scared

For the CIA supervisors and operatives responsible for torture, the chickens are coming home to roost; that is, if President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder mean it when they say no one is above the law – and if they don’t fall victim to brazen intimidation.

Unable to prevent Holder from starting an investigation of torture and other war crimes that implicate CIA officials past and present, those same CIA officials, together with what those in the intelligence trade call “agents of influence” in the media, are pulling out all the stops to quash the Justice Department’s preliminary investigation.

The 9/11 Commission Rejects own Report as Based on Government Lies

Farmer, Dean of Rutger Universities' School of Law and former Attorney General of New Jersey, was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report.

Does Farmer have cooperation and agreement from other members of the Commission? Yes. Did they say Bush ordered 9/11? No. Do they say that the 9/11 Commission was lied to by the FBI, CIA, Whitehouse and NORAD? Yes. Is there full documentary proof of this? Yes.

Farmer states...“at some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened... I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. This is not spin.”

Air Force Training More Drone Pilots Than New Fighter and Bomber Pilots

In 2007, the year before Schwartz became chief, UAVs were performing 21 combat air patrols at any one time, for a total of just over 100,000 hours. By 2011, they’ll reach 54 patrols and almost 350,000 hours. For now, the joystick pilots have to be certified fighter pilots as well.

But Schwartz says this requirement will be dropped, mainly because there aren’t enough fighter pilots to fill the growing demand for UAV crews. “There’s no need for them to be pilots,” one senior Pentagon official says. “It’s sort of like a union regulation.”

What To Do If You Are Forced To Take a Swine Flu Shot

"By 1853, Parliament began passing laws to make the untested vaccine compulsory throughout the British Empire. Other countries of Europe followed suit. Once the economic implications of compulsory vaccinations were realized, few dared to disagree. Then, as now, the media were controlled by the vaccine manufacturers and the government, who stood to make huge money from the sale of these spurious vaccines..."

Obama's "57 states" Freudian slip, 57 Islamic states in OIC

Apostasy and the Islamic Nations
Andrew G. Bostom September 21,2009
The 1990 Cairo Declaration, or so-called "Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Islam", was drafted and subsequently ratified by all the Muslim member nations of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). Now a 57 state collective which includes every Islamic nation on earth, the OIC,...Both the preamble and concluding articles (24 and 25) make plain that the OIC's Cairo Declaration is designed to supersede Western conceptions of human rights as enunciated, for example, in the US Bill of Rights,...

The Next Crisis Nobody Is Talking About

Basically, the Kremlin had a “Secret” undisclosed meeting with Israel’s prime minister. One can conclude that this was not for some sweet Russian vodka but one can only guess.

Surprisingly, within the next few days Russia announces that it will not include Iran in the Caspian Sea talks which Iran has participated in since 2001. Hmmm…that must have been some damn good vodka!
