Is Iran Playing Geopolitical Chess with 9-11, and Winning?

It appeared that the establishment media didn't really know how to handle Ahmadinejad's comments. Of course they did their best to attack and label him as a conspiracy theorist, but they didn't want the story to get too loud. Since the media blackballs any guests that question 9-11 and violently shouts down anyone who dares bring up the subject, they've been able to essentially ignore and shape the topic as ludicrous. Obama did his part to discredit Ahmadinejad's statements by calling them "hateful" and "offensive." Finally, the establishment media also tried to create the absurd impression that, "If you want further investigation into the biggest terror event ever, you must be with the terrorists and Ahmadinejad." It seems that they are desperately running out of moves.

If you work in the mortgage industry or for a title insurer, you might not want to make any plans for the next six months. Foreclosuregate is about to explode.

The Jewish Republic of Israel

Swearing an oath to a Jewish state will decide its fate. It is liable to turn the country into a theocracy like Saudi Arabia.

October 10, 2010

Remember this day. It's the day Israel changes its character. As a result, it can also change its name to the Jewish Republic of Israel, like the Islamic Republic of Iran. Granted, the loyalty oath bill that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking to have passed purportedly only deals with new citizens who are not Jewish, but it affects the fate of all of us.

UK schools doing UFO crash drills

There seems to be a growing trend among schools to stage a UFO crash, and then teach students how to react, as well as to “properly” investigate and report on the incident.

It sounds like a lot of fun, and a great way to fire up a student’s imagination as well as writing skills. Hell, I wish we would have done a staged UFO crash at my school.

The latest “UFO drill” took place Wed, Sept 29, at Sandford Primary School in the UK. The kids were treated to a full UFO crash scenario that included wreckage, police tape, and real police officers. (Perhaps it was only lacking men from the government telling the children not to talk about what was seen.)

The Jewish Republic of Israel – Gideon Levy

Remember this day. It’s the day Israel changes its character. As a result, it can also change its name to the Jewish Republic of Israel, like the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Surprise -- The Very Dark Side of U.S. History

Editor's Note: Many Americans view their country and its soldiers as the "good guys" spreading "democracy" and "liberty" around the world. When the United States inflicts unnecessary death and destruction, it's viewed as a mistake or an aberration.

In the following article Peter Dale Scott and Robert Parry examine the long history of these acts of brutality, a record that suggests they are neither a "mistake" nor an "aberration" but rather conscious counterinsurgency doctrine on the "dark side."

October 10, 2010 "Information Clearing House" -- There is a dark -- seldom acknowledged -- thread that runs through U.S. military doctrine, dating back to the early days of the Republic.

S&P: 60% of Countries Will Be Bankrupt Within 50 Years

Some sixty percent of the world's economies will be so in debt by 2060 that their debt will be downgraded to "junk" status, effectively bankrupting the countries, says a report from Standard & Poor's ratings agency, which also warns that attempts to deal with the problem could cause social instability.

When a country's debt is downgraded to "junk," it becomes virtually impossible for the government to borrow more money. Thus, if the government is running a deficit -- as just about all developed countries are doing today -- its ability to provide services would collapse.

Does Your Food Contain Genetically Modified Organisms?

Okay, here’s your chance, with a new way for you to know that your food does not contain genetically modified organisms. The Non-GMO Project, a collection of top suppliers and advocates in the organic industry, and the only no-GMO certifier in North America, has kicked off a GM-free month.

Ruh-roh — October includes Halloween. Since half of the refined sugar in the US is genetically modified, coming from GM sugar beets, finding GM-free candy might be a little hard. Though GM beets are now illegal until further notice, what’s on the shelves today is most likely made from last year’s crops.

MI5 officers to give evidence to 7/7 inquiry

MI5 officers could be called to answer questions in public as part of the inquests into the deaths of 52 people in the terrorist bomb attacks on July 7 2005 which finally gets under way today.

More than five years after the attacks, bereaved families will have the chance to ask questions from the police and emergency services about whether their loved ones could have been saved.

Lady Justice Hallett has ruled that the scope of the inquests should also include the sensitive issue of whether the attacks could have been prevented, which could involve calling officers from MI5 to explain their decisions.

White House staff exodus exposes Obama to charges of disarray

More senior staff including defence secretary Robert Gates, and senior advisor David Axelrod, leave their jobs

More senior White House staff are to leave in the next few months, adding to the high exit rate from President Barack Obama's administration.

Political analysts attribute the attrition rate to exhaustion, but Republican opponents blame disarray inside the White House, with an insular team responsible for too many policy failures.

Protect police from lawsuits, says Met chief

Rights groups attack Sir Paul Stephenson's plan to curb court action against officers

Sir Paul Stephenson, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, has privately lobbied the home secretary to make it harder for people to take legal action against his force, the Guardian has learned.

Critics say the plans amount to an attempt by the police to put themselves beyond the rule of law and undermine constitutional safeguards against abuses of power.

No boost for Social Security checks in 2011

As if voters don't have enough to be angry about this election year, the government is expected to announce this week that more than 58 million Social Security recipients will go through another year without an increase in their monthly benefits.

It would mark only the second year without an increase since automatic adjustments for inflation were adopted in 1975. The first year was this year.

"If you're the ruling party, this is not the sort of thing you want to have happening two weeks before an election," said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy commissioner at the Social Security Administration and now a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

FBI Sends Bomb-Sniffing Dogs To Peaceful Protest Against State Kidnapping of Newborn

Imagine the horror felt by Stephanie Janvrin and Johnathon Irish when their newborn baby was kidnapped just 16 hours after her birth. Apparently if a parent has an affiliation with the Oath Keepers it gives the the state the authority to take the child into custody.

This horror story has gone ultra viral and angered millions of people. About a dozen of those people showed up outside of the Concord Hospital to protest this clearly illegal act.

The fact that these protesters were completely legal and non violent didn’t seem to matter to the folks at the FBI.

Thar’s Money in That Old Quilt: Then and Now, The Difference in American Leadership

By J. Speer-Williams – My Catbird Seat

“No thief will ever guess that we have $10,000 sewn into Grandma’s old quilt,” said Mrs. Donner to her three girls and husband, after dinner, one cold night, while in their warm and comfortable living room.

In early 1846, the wealthy Illinois family of George and Tamsen Donner, with their three daughters, were about to become American pioneers to California. And 10,000 dollars – equal to about 150,000 to 200,000 dollars, today – would go a long way in ensuring their success in California. But why go?

Many pioneers believed in Manifest Destiny, an idea that the land between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans belonged to America , and Americans had not only the right, but the duty to settle those lands.

Zionism has a Pervasive Thought Police In Portland, OR

Driving up on Milwaukie Ave, I noticed a few from last week's meeting waving signs across the street from the True Brew coffee shop. Apparently, a few were anxious to wave signs, so there they were on a remote section of Milwaukie holding up messages like "FREE GAZA", and "STOP FBI HARASSMENT".

I hung out with them in the rain for 5 minutes before a dude in his 30's trots across the street towards us without a jacket.

"I just got a complaint about anti-Semites being hosted in my coffee shop." He informs us. "I don't have much business as it is, so you gotta do this demo stuff somewhere else."

Florida Employee Pension Unfunded Liabilities Grow

“The Supreme Court created a new “corporate” nobility where, in place of “divine right” , a sub-human species, a parasitic class, congress, lobbyists, the Pentagon, the organs of state security, all bowing and scraping to their masters in China, Israel, Saudi Arabia and London. They have attached themselves like leeches, sucking the life out of America.

…the Bush presidency was illegal and all acts under his authority are, according to the constitution as written, “null and void.” If only we could bring the thousands, the millions who died because of this genuinely criminal act back to life.“

Three faces of Binyamin Netanyahu

Uri Avnery considers the three faces of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu: the unprincipled conman, the street-wise trickster and the advocate of Greater Israel. He concludes that while Netanyahu displays all three faces, the third is the one that represents him most.

The Road To World War III: The Global Banking Cartel Has One Card Left To Play

To put it in technical terms, the United States government has been taken over by a financial terrorism network. They have bought off leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties, and have established a dominant role in all three branches of government and throughout the mainstream media. They have complete control of the economy, stock market, US Treasury, Federal Reserve, World Bank, IMF and global banking system. Free market capitalism has collapsed; it’s now a rigged global market. This is an organized criminal operation, an imperial fascist movement that is determined to destroy our very way of life.

A war has already been launched against us.

We must take BACK our monetary system and our government.

Controlled Media is a Conspiracy Fact

This is just a little reminder. The corporate news is run by the same bankster control freaks who are attempting to shape our society into a thoughtless police state.


“… it would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government …” – David Rockefeller in Baden-Baden, Germany 1991, thanking major media for keeping secret for decades the movement of the prophetic one world government.

Caught Spying on Student, FBI Demands GPS Tracker Back

Afifi, the son of an Islamic-American community leader who died a year ago in Egypt, is one of only a few people known to have found a government-tracking device on their vehicle.

His discovery comes in the wake of a recent ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals saying it’s legal for law enforcement to secretly place a tracking device on a suspect’s car without getting a warrant, even if the car is parked in a private driveway.

By William Cook — My Catbird Seat –

“Our goal is two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security,” (President Obama) such is the illusion that resurfaces to restart the peace negotiations that will stabilize the mid-east. For 63 years that “goal” has been the carrot held before the people of the United States and Britain as the ultimate resolution for the Israeli/Palestinian crisis. In reality there is nothing in the statement that is true.

US Banks Fake Documents to Rush Foreclosures

Major US banks systematically faked documents in order to speed up foreclosures for hundreds of thousands of homeowners, a mounting body of evidence shows. It appears likely that federal and state laws were broken in the process.

The scandal speaks both to the dimensions of the social crisis and the criminality of the big banks. The immediate cause of the mortgage lenders’ rampant cheating on foreclosure paperwork is the tidal wave of families ruined by the economic crisis—a crisis itself set into motion by the banks’ predatory lending practices. The goal was to get people out of their homes as efficiently and ruthlessly as possible, skating over legal requirements relating to documentation.

Debunking Banks’ “Procedural Problems” Defense on the Foreclosure Crisis

This country cannot stand as a democracy if there is one set of law for the banks, corps, elites and another set of law for the rest of us. Perjury and fraud on the court is very serious matter. It is not a mere paperwork problem.

One Wall, Two People, No States: the Peace Pretense – William A. Cook

The entire West Bank is surrounded by an imprisoning wall, a 400 mile barrier of cement and steel that locks the people of Palestine inside with all egress and ingress controlled by the Israeli military. While the Palestinians have welcomed the possibility of UN Peace Keepers along the border of the green line, Israel refuses to relinquish its control.

Ellen Brown: ForeclosureGate and Obama's Pocket Veto

By most reports, it would appear that the voluntary suspension of foreclosures is underway to review simple, careless procedural errors. Errors which the conscientious banks are hastening to correct. Even Gretchen Morgenson in the New York Times characterizes the problem as "flawed paperwork."

But those errors go far deeper than mere sloppiness. They are concealing a massive fraud.

Facebook developer donates $100,000 to legalise cannabis campaign

Sean Parker, 30, gave the money to the campaign for Proposition 19, otherwise known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act, 2010.

People in the state voting on November 2 for a new governor and for new congressmen will also have the opportunity to say whether they want to legalise the drug.

Mr Parker, who revolutionised the music industry by setting up the Napster music-sharing system, joined Mark Zuckerberg in developing the social networking website in 2004.
