Black Activists condemn Obama's race-baiting propaganda

For Release: August 7, 2009
Black Activists Call on Obama to Condemn Race-Baiting Tactics in Health Care Debate
Washington, D.C. - The Project 21 black leadership network is condemning New York Times liberal columnist Paul Krugman for scurrilously pinning racist motives on critics of President Obama's health care proposals.
"Opposition to the proposed health care bill isn't based on race," Massie added. "It is based on a people who are tired of Congress and the President spitting in their faces. It is the collective resolve of a people who are tired of being tread upon. One would think a Nobel prize-winner such as Krugman could figure that out."

Israel now picks a fight with Ireland

It seems that Zionists and AIPAC will go to any lengths to stifle anyone critical of their murderous regime. There is no end to whom Zionists will pick a fight with.
Now it's Mary Robinson, first woman president of Ireland and former UNHR high commissioner who has supported Palestinian rights and criticised the tactics of Israel against the Palestinian people

Most people in western countries – including western feminists – get their opinions about Afghanistan from pro-war spin doctors and rarely if ever directly access authentic voices within Afghanistan.

Overthrow Inc.: Peter Ackerman’s quest to do what the CIA used to do, and make it seem progressive

Antiwar activists will find no ideological soul mates in Ackerman, Helvey and Sharp, who are conditionally against the use of violence, not out of moral principle, but because they believe violence is often an ineffective method of achieving what political violence is normally intended to achieve: the seizure of power.
The destabilizers represent a faction within the U.S. ruling class that pushes for a nonmilitary means of achieving a goal all ruling class factions agree on: regime change in countries that resist integration into the U.S. imperial orbit.

The UN in Sudan: A Mission that Hates Success

The rate of killings in Darfur has dropped below the rate of murder in some American cities, such as Chicago....
The UN thus has every reason to celebrate these achievements. Its mission in Darfur has apparently achieved the impossible, in spite of limited resources and multiple constraints, and brought violence down dramatically. Self-congratulation was in order.

New experiment shows evidence for the a-biotic origin of oil

Hydrocarbons In The Deep Earth?
Scientists have debated for years whether some of these hydrocarbons could also have been created deeper in the Earth and formed without organic matter. Now for the first time, scientists have found that ethane and heavier hydrocarbons can be synthesized under the pressure-temperature conditions of the upper mantle - the layer of Earth under the crust and on top of the core.

Soldiers forced to dye their own camouflage gear in MoD blunder

Soldiers on the front-line in Afghanistan are having to dye their own uniforms because of a critical shortage of camouflaged shirts.

The men of 2 Rifles are fighting in an area of Helmand province which is lush with green vegetation, but have only been issued with sand-coloured desert gear - effectively making them 'sitting ducks' for the Taliban.

The soldiers have been boiling up huge vats of dye to change the colour of the shirts, but the result is a less-than-ideal shade of turquoise.

We can't ignore litter, even in space

Since the US abandoned its Vanguard 1 satellite half a century ago, space has been filling up with litter almost as rapidly as our city streets. And no one has made any effort to clear it away.

Discarded rocket stages, dropped spanners, even chunks of deep-frozen astronaut urine whizz around the globe at up to 25,000 miles per hour, in what Newsweek calls the "debris cloud" of some 750,000 objects larger than a marble, and even more smaller ones.

Last February, two satellites crashed into each other, producing another 100,000 bits of debris. Even the smallest pieces endanger satellites, valued at £10 billion. A fragment a millimetre across has the impact of a bullet; one the size of a tennis ball is equivalent to 25 sticks of dynamite.

Can One Pill Tame the Illness No One Wants to Talk About?

The first signs of illness in Suleiman Djarra appeared during a heavy rainstorm. The 2 year-old suddenly stopped eating and then developed severe diarrhea, which continued for days, draining him of energy. On the third day, Suleiman's mother Aiseta Traoré carried his listless body to the road outside their village in southern Mali and hitchhiked to the nearest hospital about 9 miles (14 km) away. There, she says, a doctor gave her a pack of vitamins and advised her to take the boy home to recover. Hours after Traoré and Suleiman reached their village, though, the boy died.

Men with symmetrical faces likely to remain mentally alert in later life

The more symmetrical a man's face is, the more likely he is to remain mentally alert in later life, a study has suggested.

Psychologists found that men with higher levels of facial symmetry – having faces with matching left and right sides – were less prone to mental decline between the ages of 79 and 83.

Obama fights back as bid to reform US healthcare stalls

President Barack Obama has become mired in a frenzied fight over US healthcare reform as Republicans scent a devastating political victory that could hobble his presidency.

Obama yesterday lashed out at critics of his ailing push to provide coverage for America's 46 million uninsured people by saying that his critics were resorting to "outlandish rumours" and "misleading information" to scupper his plans.

But Sarah Palin, the Republican's former vice-presidential candidate, raised the temperature in the debate by declaring Obama's plans "downright evil" and accusing him of introducing a care rationing system that could threaten her own mentally handicapped child.

Google and Blogger Shut Down Sibel Edmonds’ Blog

Increasingly, Google and its properties — the vastly popular video site YouTube and equally popular Blogger — are tools for shutting down opposition to the government. On the weekend, Google removed an Alex Jones video critical of Obama’s policies. Google classified the video as “hate speech” because the corporation allegedly received complaints the content of the video was racist. In the video, Alex appears as “Obama the Joker,” as depicted in a now infamous street art poster

Mass Inflation Ahead – Save Your Nickels!

I've often mused about how fun it would be to have a time machine and travel back to the early 1960s, and go on a pre-inflation shopping spree. In that era, most used cars were less than $800, and a new-in-the box Colt .45 Automatic sold for $60. In particular, it would be great to go back and get a huge pile of rolls of then-circulating US silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars at face value. (With silver presently around $15.50 per ounce, the US 90% silver (1964 and earlier) coinage is selling wholesale at 11 times face value – that is $11,000 for a $1,000 face value bag.)

Is It Now a Crime to Be Poor?

T’S too bad so many people are falling into poverty at a time when it’s almost illegal to be poor. You won’t be arrested for shopping in a Dollar Store, but if you are truly, deeply, in-the-streets poor, you’re well advised not to engage in any of the biological necessities of life — like sitting, sleeping, lying down or loitering. City officials boast that there is nothing discriminatory about the ordinances that afflict the destitute, most of which go back to the dawn of gentrification in the ’80s and ’90s. “If you’re lying on a sidewalk, whether you’re homeless or a millionaire, you’re in violation of the ordinance,” a city attorney in St.

Jews Have Always Exercised Great Power

Even Jews have a self-image of a poor, beleaguered people. In fact, there has always been a powerful class of Jews who allied with aristocrats, and served as advisers, bankers, administrators, tax collectors, enforcers, doctors and tutors, becoming an elite caste of their own. They used their positions and worldwide contacts to dominate trade and become extremely rich. They rewarded their protectors handsomely.

Their role in the "Enlightenment" and Western imperialism has been discreetly veiled. The neo-feudal New World Order continues this cozy alliance with the Gentile elite. The concept of a "Chosen People" is ideally suited for a Luciferian plutocracy dedicated to colonizing the human race.

‘Snoop’ power is used 1,400 times a day to intercept private data

Britain has “sleepwalked into a surveillance society”, it was claimed last night after figures disclosed that public bodies had obtained access to private telephone and e-mail records about 1,400 times a day.

Council, police and other organisations made more than half a million requests for confidential communications data last year.

The statistics constitute a 44 per cent rise in requests over the past two years.

The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, which was created to help the authorities to fight the threat of terrorism, gives organisations such as local councils, the police and intelligence agencies the power to request access to confidential communications data, including lists of telephone numbers dialled and e-mail addresses to which messages have been sent.

Torture claims: no British Government inquiry

An inquiry into allegations of UK complicity in torture has been rejected by the Government, as Sir John Scarlett, head of MI6, said the service was committed to human rights.

A Downing Street spokesman said the Government had already said it would publish the guidance it issues on the interrogation of detainees held abroad once it has been revised.

"We do not support calls for an inquiry," the spokesman said. "We believe that an inquiry is not necessary."

Temporary Recession or the End of Growth?

Could the Alternative Diagnosis be altogether wrong? That is, might conventional economists be right in thinking that growth can continue forever? It is often said that anything is possible, but some things are clearly much more possible than others. The perpetual growth of human population and consumption within the confines of a finite planet seems like a very long shot indeed, especially since warning signs are everywhere apparent that ecological limits are already being reached and surpassed.

See also:

Remember: to think there is no limit to growth on a finite planet is precisely, mathematically equivalent to thinking that you may have a stabilized, steady state economy on a perpetually shrinking planet. Both claims are precisely, equally ludicrous!

There are always "warnings" in the beginning, aren’t there? For some reason, however, they are never heeded. Instead, we just barrel ahead, undaunted, into the tall grass where ambush awaits us. War opponents predicted the Iraq invasion would prove unsustainable – and we were right. We said that, far from greeting us with cheers and showers of roses, the Iraqis would soon be shooting at us and demanding our ouster – and we were right. We said the rationale for war was based on a series of carefully manufactured and marketed lies – and that was the truth, now wasn’t it? Yet it seems we are caught in an endlessly repetitive nightmare, where the same prophetic voices are being drowned out by a chorus of "responsible" voices – to be followed by an all-too-familiar disaster.
