Senate cites scruples, refuses to seat Blagojevich appointment

Blagojevich snubs Senate, taps Burris for seat
Chicago Breaking News | Chicago Tribune | Dec 30, 2008

"To not fill the vacancy would be to deprive the people of Illinois of their appropriate voice" in the U.S. Senate, Blagojevich said.

Senate President Harry Reid cried, "Oh! There go our approval ratings," stomped his feet, and ran out of the room with tears in his eyes when he heard the news.

Later a spokesman for the Senate President said Mr. Reid was recuperating from the horrible affront to his Senatorial scruples.

Flashback: Israel backed by army of cyber-soldiers

In the past week nearly 5,000 members of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) have downloaded special “megaphone” software that alerts them to anti-Israeli chatrooms or internet polls to enable them to post contrary viewpoints. A student team in Jerusalem combs the web in a host of different languages to flag the sites so that those who have signed up can influence an opinion survey or the course of a debate.

U.S. man pleads guilty to acting as agent for Israel

Court documents show the defendant, Ben-Ami Kadish, reported to the same handler as Jonathan Pollard, an American who spied for Israel in the 1980s and triggered a scandal that rocked U.S.-Israeli relations.

Kadish's plea indicates the Israeli spy network that obtained U.S. nuclear secrets through Pollard spread further than previously acknowledged.

It comes as the Bush administration considers a new request by Pollard for a commutation of his life sentence.

Marty Peretz and the American political consensus on Israel

Not a word of condemnation of the Israeli blockade -- which has caused extreme suffering and deprivation in Gaza -- or of the massively disproportionate response or the ongoing and ever-expanding Israeli occupation. It is all one-sided support for whatever Israel does from our political class, and one-sided condemnation of Israel's enemies (who are, ipso facto, American enemies) -- all of it, as usual, sharply divergent from the consensus in much of the rest of the world.

Best Way 2 Control the Masses

Remember FDR’s words: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”

When the Shadow Powers determine the choices available to us they control us. Sure it’s subtle. You bet it’s effective. And we all think we’re free.

Obama can run but he can't hide from Palestine

Activists urge Obama to rethink US role in Mideast

By PHILIP ELLIOTT – 53 minutes ago

KAILUA, Hawaii (AP) — A handful of pro-Palestinian activists protested outside President-elect Barack Obama's vacation home on Tuesday and urged a new approach to the Middle East.

Palestinian blood is cheap for America!!

US says will give $85 million to help Palestinians

"The United States reiterates its deep concern about the escalating violence in Gaza and commends UNRWA's important work meeting the emergency needs of civilians in Gaza at this very difficult time," said the statement.

"We hold Hamas fully responsible for breaking the cease-fire and for the renewal of violence," it added.

A Hundred Eyes for an Eye

What about a hundred eyes for an eye?

It makes some of the world ill with rage. And it turns much of the United States numb with silence. Routinely, the politicians and pundits of Washington can't summon minimal decency in themselves or each other on the subject of Israel and Palestinians.

View From The Lab: Where have all the sunspots gone?

Solar physicists still speak with awe of the Bastille Day storm of July 14, 2000, when so much energy was emitted that the Northern Lights were seen in Texas, and the Global Positioning System was thrown out of action for hours.

Gaza burns, Obama golfs...

Shhhh! As the world waits for Obama to voice his opinion on Gaza, America's president-in-waiting hits the golf course

Barack Obama remained silent over the violence in Gaza as Israel today threatened to continue its attacks for weeks.

Instead, the president-elect is continuing his 12-day Christmas holiday in Hawaii and was seen enjoying a round of golf.

He joined a group of friends at a private club near his £6million rented, beach-front holiday home in Hawaii yesterday.

Ten Tips for Dealing With GIYUS.org (Give Israel Your United Support)

If, like many people, you are disgusted by the behaviour of Israel and happen to blog about, say, the latest massacre in Gaza; the desperate situation the Palestinians are in; the carnage in Lebanon or the provocation of UNIFIL peacekeepers; the threat of attacking Iran or any of the other nefarious deeds that Israel is allowed to get away with, then there is a reasonable chance that you may attract the attention of GIYUS.

Top 5 Incredible Science Discoveries of 2008

Science is mostly an incremental process, a slow peeling of the onion to offer small glimpses of understanding. But over time, scientists remove enough layers to expose stunning truths about nature.

New Hope for U.S. Science Education

In recent years, many researchers have cautioned that the United States is losing its global leadership role in science and technology due to a lack of federal funding and morality-based politics, leaving the door open for China and others to peck away at becoming the next superpower.

Schiff: Government Interference Only Makes The Problem Worse

Investor Peter Schiff again went to battle with a raft of establishment talking heads on CNBC yesterday who attempted to propagandize for the bailout by pushing the idea that it was necessary and inevitable.

Schiff pointed out that the word “stimulus” was a misnomer because the government has proven itself incapable of stimulating the economy and has only sought to “interfere with the free market’s ability to create legitimate wealth,” a process that would lead to more inflation and more destruction.

Slysoft re-cracks BD+

SLYSOFT HAS DONE IT again with their highly recommended AnyDVD HD product. The new version 6.5.0.2, announced today, breaks the new revision of the unbreakable BD+.

For those of you not following this one-sided fight, Blu-Ray movies do a lot of very unfortunate things, like stripping your fair use rights, preventing backups (no one has kids or pets that maul disks), being incompatible with boatloads of hardware, and transmitting every viewing, every click, and every thing you do back to who-knows-where to be used against you. Really, they do that, why do you think net access is mandatory?

Microsoft specs out 'pay as you go' PC scheme

Microsoft Corp. last week applied for a patent that spells out a "pay as you go" concept under which users would be charged for both the software they run and the computing horsepower they use.

According to the patent application filed last week with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the "Metered Pay-As-You-Go Computing Experience" scheme would meter software use and access to specific computer hardware. Fees would be charged against a prepaid or billed account.

UK heads for the big chill - 13C

Britain faces a freezing start to 2009 with temperatures plunging as low as minus 13C.

The big chill will mean widespread frost throughout the UK.

During the day, the temperature is unlikely to rise much above zero, and in parts of Scotland it could even fall as low as - 13C.

The South East and Midlands are braced for overnight lows of - 6C for the coming week.

Global warming is a pain in the butt - ACHOO!

Gilad Atzmon - Eine Kleine Nacht Murder: How Israeli Leaders Kill for their People's Votes

In order to grasp the latest devastating murderous Israeli expedition in Gaza one must deeply comprehend the Israeli identity and its inherent hatred towards anyone who fails to be Jewish and a hatred against Arabs in particular. This hatred is imbued in the Israeli curriculum, it is preached by political leaders and implied by their acts, it is conveyed by cultural figures, even within the so-called ‘Israeli Left’.

May We No Longer Be Silent

The title of my article comes from the sermon of the Episcopal Bishop of Washington DC, John Bryson Chane, delivered on October 5, 2008, at St. Columba Church. The bishop’s eyes were opened to Israel’s persecution of Palestinians by his recent trip to Palestine. In his sermon he called on “politicians seeking the highest office in [our] land” to find the courage to “speak out and condemn violations of human rights and religious freedom denied to Palestinian Christians and Muslims” by the state of Israel.

An economist should not get stuck in a toilet seat

It is rather haunting, the notice above the flush button in the toilet on the aircraft: "Do Not Flush While Seated On Toilet." One imagines the engineers of the toilet running tests with flush dummies with big flat butts and the suction ripping the stuffing right out of them, and the engineers thinking, "Oh criminy, you mean we wasted three years on this sucker,?" asks Garrison Keillor

Shock, Awe and Lies: The Truth Behind the Israeli Attack on Gaza

Up and down the American media and political establishments, you will find nothing but bleatings about Israel being "forced" to launch its vicious blunderbuss attacks against heavily populated Gaza because of the "recent spate of Hamas bombings" since the end of a six-month ceasefire.

This is of course a damnable and deliberate lie.
