Class Elitism, Not Race, for Obama and Gates

Race, Class and Henry Louis Gates in Obama’s America
By Daniel Greenfield Tuesday, August 4, 2009
It’s not about the 9 to 5 anymore. It’s about the 12 to 3 in a four day week. It’s about the triumph over the middle class by people who excel at talking, but not at working. It’s about playing divide and conquer with a multicultural America, certain that no matter how it goes, you will always pocket the winnings. It’s not just about class, it’s about the new class. The one that doesn’t earn money, but has it transferred over from the coffers of the taxpayer. It’s not about America. It’s about the New America. It’s about the Obama’s America.

HD DVD returns and kicks Blu-ray to the gutter

Just when Blu-ray thought it had clear sailing, a tempest has risen in the East: China Blue Hi-definition Disk (CBHD). Toshiba has licensed its HD DVD to them and it will be the unit world leader in HD optical technology in just 12 months.

Why? The Times Online reports that the CBHD players are outselling Blu-ray in China by 3-1 and the CBHD disks cost a quarter of Blu-ray.

Swine Flu Vaccines Contain LIVE H1N1 VIRUS!

Imagine millions of children that will be involuntarily vaccinated this coming fall that will be shedding H1N1 swine flu across the country, in the sewage drains and possibly passing through the desalination process and in our tap-water. If half of the U.S. population will be vaccinated with this swine flu vaccine this coming fall and winter, imagine how virulently deadly this swine flu will be on an annual basis, this mandatory vaccination plan will surely cause the pandemic and not solve it.

Aug 04 18:52

Can you be forced be vaccinated for swine flu? Very possibly, or arrested for refusing

All of this reprehensible activity speaks directly to the unethical juggernaut initiated by George W. Bush’s administration, in which the government, under the ludicrous guise of protecting all citizens from all potential harm, has usurped powers far beyond what the Founding Fathers, in their worst nightmares, might have imagined.

It may be dangerous to say it (although perhaps less so than during George’s reign), but say it I must: It is ethically incumbent upon any American who believes in the individual freedoms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and in the ethical use of government power in support of citizens established by the Constitution (not repression of citizens masquerading as protection) to investigate these issues thoroughly, and protest when protest is called for.

Elections Are A Scam

As in every election we're now being bombarded with propaganda about how "your vote makes a difference" and associated nonsense. According to the official version ordinary citizens control the state by voting for candidates in elections. The President and other politicians are supposedly servants of "the people" and the government an instrument of the general populace. This version is a myth. It does not matter who is elected because the way the system is set up all elected representatives must do what big business and the state bureaucracy want, not what "the people" want.

Senators, Advisers Urge Obama to Double Afghan Forces

President Barack Obama and top U.S. military commanders are under pressure from senators and civilian advisers to double the size of Afghan security forces, a commitment that would cost billions of dollars.

In private letters and face-to-face meetings, these supporters of mounting a stronger effort against the Taliban seek to boost the Afghan National Army and police to at least 400,000 personnel from the current 175,000.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Marines Ban Twitter, MySpace, Facebook

The U.S. Marine Corps has banned Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other social media sites from its networks, effective immediately.

The Marines’ ban will last a year. It was drawn up in response to a late July warning from U.S. Strategic Command, which told the rest of the military it was considering a Defense Department-wide ban on the Web 2.0 sites, due to network security concerns. Scams, worms, and Trojans often spread unchecked throughout social media sites, passed along from one online friend to the next. “The mechanisms for social networking were never designed for security and filtering. They make it way too easy for people with bad intentions to push malicious code to unsuspecting users,” a Stratcom source told Danger Room.

Russian Subs Patrolling Off East Coast of U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and NATO have been playing some very dangerous games in Russia's back yard recently; Russia is apparently just giving the US a little taste of its own geopolitical medicine.

Blackwater Founder Implicated in Murder

A former Blackwater employee and an ex-US Marine who has worked as a security operative for the company have made a series of explosive allegations in sworn statements filed on August 3 in federal court in Virginia. The two men claim that the company's owner, Erik Prince, may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company. The former employee also alleges that Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe," and that Prince's companies "encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life."

London Times Smears 9/11 Truth Movement As Racist, Nazi Like, Stupid

A vicious attack piece in the Rupert Murdoch owned London Times has linked the so called "birther" phenomenon with 9/11 Truth, in an effort to imply that the movement is inherently racist and "intellectually scary" (read stupid).

In an article entitled To tell you the truth, these conspiracists scare me, Times "journalist" James Bone equates those who question the government version of events on 9/11 with "crackpot birthers", referring to those who have questioned Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as President.

Obama Sends a Signal to the Few Remaining Suckers Who Believe in the Rule of Law

For anyone still harboring a few scraps of vestigial hope that the change of administration effected by the 2008 election would restore even a thin, weak, straggly lineament thin of the rule of law in the United States, the recent opinion piece by Barack Obama's hand-picked CIA chief, the doleful Establishment water-toter Leon Panetta, will tell you all you need to know.

In the piece, Panetta followed the Dick Cheney party line that the Obama Administration has adopted whole cloth. Anyone fooled by the stilted kabuki theater staged in the past few months -- i.e., a purported "great conflict" between Obama and Cheney over torture and other Terror War issues -- has, as they say, rocks in the head.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only "change" the American people received with the election of Obama, was to simply have a more telegenic, talented pitchman for absolutely the bloody same agenda.

In his rousing speech to the NAACP, President Obama praised the civil rights leaders of the past whose sacrifices "began the journey that has led me (to the White House.) He neglected to mention, however, that the majority of those civil rights leaders, most notably Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., opposed the war in Viet Nam and, if they were alive today, likely would oppose his escalation of the war in Afghanistan.

On Exploiting Land and Natural Gas

There is a paradox at the heart of recent news stories from Egypt, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority concerning various natural gas and land 'business deals.' For in this day of seemingly unsurpassed state power there is a tendency to downplay its true extent. It is frequently proclaimed that the exigencies of international power structures limit state agency. Often, the aim is to shield the state and/or the true holders of power in the state from the consequences of rapacious behavior toward citizens and resources.

Israel targets human rights groups

In a bid to staunch the flow of damaging evidence of war crimes committed during Israel’s winter assault on Gaza, the Israeli government has launched a campaign to clamp down on human rights groups, both in Israel and abroad.

It has begun by targeting one of the world’s leading rights organisations, the US-based Human Rights Watch (HRW), as well as a local group of dissident army veterans, Breaking the Silence, which last month published the testimonies of 26 combat soldiers who served in Gaza.

Additionally, according to the Israeli media, the government is planning a “much more aggressive stance” towards human rights groups working to help the Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Desperation on the cusp of madness.

With the net and a 24/7 news cycle, the Israeli government can no longer spew its propaganda without a challenge.

Go ahead, Israel; develop a "much more aggressive stance" against those who are called by conscience and morality to assist the Palestinians. See where it gets you.

This campaign will get you no where, except for creating a profound embarrassment for the Israeli government, world-wide, and a characterization of Israel as more of an apartheid, pariah state than it already is perceived to be by thinking people.

Beginning to Smell in Afghanistan

As the old saying goes, "guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days." Because we have no status-of-forces-agreement with Afghanistan, we cannot even pose as guests as in Iraq, let alone welcome ones. After almost eight years in Afghanistan, it is hard to exaggerate how pungent must be our odor to Afghans.

The United States has achieved our objectives in Afghanistan. We ought to declare victory and bring our combat forces home. Due to our tendency to look after the tactical details and miss the proverbial forest for the trees, this critically important strategic realization is in danger of being missed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the US is not going to leave Afghanistan because one of the two major objectives has not yet been realized.

The drug trade, and flow of heroin, (from which so many profit so handsomely) is being protected.

Anyone remember the "Golden Triangle" from the Viet Nam days?

However, the pipelines (through which oil from the Middle East and Eurasia will be controlled) have not yet been installed because of the instability caused by the US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan.

And that may keep the US in Afghanistan nearly indefinitely until that objective is accomplished.

Mr. Obama is allowing the warmongery to steer him into a course of action that will make America the latest superpower to impale itself on the far side of the Khyber Pass. In 1978 Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, manipulated events in a way that turned Afghanistan into the Soviet Union’s Vietnam. "The West should not repeat the mistakes that the Soviets made," he now says. "We are now running the risk of unintentionally duplicating what the Soviets were doing."

Sun Tzu noted, "No nation ever profited from a long war." A headline banner at the Department of Defense Web site reads, "The United States Is a Nation Engaged in What Will Be a Long War."

Gaza children shatter world record

(I'll bet they shattered the record in number of homemade kites, too! These kids have close to nothing...it's not like Israel allows the importation of kites or food and medicine or anything silly like that).

It was an unlikely place to shatter a world record, but the beaches of the Gaza Strip were the venue for thousands of Palestinian children who flew the largest number of kites simultaneously from the same place.

The record that once stood at 713 has been broken, thanks to the efforts of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and about 6,000 kite-flying children.

The United States does not have the best health care system in the world

The United States is the only wealthy, industrialized, developed country in the world that does not offer health care to all of its citizens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although the current Obama health care bill moving through congress is not the answer, there has to be a far better answer than what we have now in terms of providing good health care to US citizens.

Diverting the billions spent on these wars without end, and using them to fund a workable, universal health care would be a real start.

And congressional representatives do have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to their own health care packages, which - even if they only serve one term - are theirs for life.

Russia increases troops' alert in S Ossetia after Georgia's provocations

Russia has deployed its troops and border guards in Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia on increased alert following provocations from Georgia, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported on Tuesday.

"The situation is really worrisome, provocations from the Georgian side on the eve of the anniversary of the August events last year are continuing," Andrei Nesterenko, spokesman for Russian Foreign Ministry, said in a statement posted on the ministry's website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the Georgia/Russia conflict goes "hot", coupled with more destabilization in Pakistan (which would impede Russia getting supplies to Iran by ground), look for a potential US/Israeli attack against Iran to begin shortly after those two things happen.

In this case two Palestinian refugee families (nearly 50 individuals) who lived in these homes since they were evicted from their homes in West Jerusalem in 1948 are made refugees again.

No tax hike for middle class: White House

U.S. President Barack Obama will keep his promise not to raise taxes on people making less than $250,000 a year, the White House said Monday, rebutting comments by administration officials that indicated otherwise.

"The president has made a very clear commitment to not raise taxes on middle-class families," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told a regular briefing.

"Let me be precise. The president's clear commitment is not to raise taxes on those making less than $250,000 a year," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't hold my breath on this one.

And it's interesting that the white house defines people making just slightly less than $250,000.00 per year as "middle class".

Abbas Launches First Fatah Conference In Decades

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas launched his Fatah movement's first conference in two decades Tuesday with a call for his people to limit their resistance to Israel to marches and protests and not to abandon peace talks despite years of setbacks.

Yet the three-day gathering opened in disarray, with some 400 Gaza delegates unable to attend because of an increasingly acrimonious standoff between Abbas and Hamas. The Islamic militants, who wrested control of Gaza from Abbas in 2007, prevented Fatah delegates from leaving the territory for the conference.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Hamas and Fatah; unless and until you can find reconciliation and a unified voice with which to speak to the Israeli government, there will be no Palestinian state, or - if it does get founded - it will not be much larger than a postage stamp!

Bush urges unified warning against North Korea

Former US president George W. Bush said Saturday the five nations involved in nuclear disarmament talks with North Korea must send a unified warning against Pyongyang's continued defiance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement reminds me of a classic line from one of the comedian Ron White's standup routines: "you can't fix stupid"

First, North Korea is a client state of China, and China is its largest trading partner. For anything here to work in terms of negotiations must have China behind it one thousand percent.

And it appears that Bush is already suffering from acute, selective amnesia regarding the actions of his administration.

Bush gave North Korea and the world a masterful lesson about what happens to countries without a solid nuclear deterrent through his invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq.

Bill Clinton in N.Korea mission to free reporters

Former US president Bill Clinton arrived in North Korea on Tuesday on a surprise mission to free two jailed US journalists, in what was the highest-profile visit by an American to Pyongyang for nearly a decade.

“Our interest is the successful completion of this issue and to confirm the safe return of the two journalists,” a US official travelling separately with the ex-president’s wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story about the journalists is just a smokescreen; convenient, but nothing more than a cover story.

Clinton has been dispatched to Pyongyang to see what it will take to get North Korea back to the bargaining table. He would not be meeting with Kim Jong-Il, were this not the case.

Of course, this time, the US had better honor the commitments it makes (unlike what happened during the Bush administration)

New Evidence: That The ‘Swine Flu’ Pandemic Is Man-Made

To realize such windfall profits on an engineered, global flu pandemic, detailed covert planning must take place of course.

Patents protecting the proprietary flu vaccine must be applied for and secured before the pandemic virus is released in order to minimize the competition and maximize the profit potentials. In a biological attack of this nature, timing is extremely critical.

Indeed, the evidence is clear ­ Novartis applied for just such a patent on Nov. 4, 2005, and the U.S. Patent Office accepted this application and granted US 20090047353A1 for a “Split Influenza Vaccine with Adjuvants” on February 19, 2009.

Israeli police evicted two Palestinian families in east Jerusalem on Sunday, then allowed Jewish settlers to move into their homes, drawing criticism from Palestinians, the United Nations and the State Department.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency was so ineffective and mismanaged during Hurricane Katrina that it should be totally dismantled and replaced with a new disaster response agency, according to a draft of a Senate report that was presented to their Homeland Security Committee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason FEMA did so poorly during Hurricane Katrina is that taking care of the people isn't their job. FEMA's purpose is to take care of the GOVERNMENT in a crisis, even to the point of defending it from the people!

Botched Building Demolition Reinforces WTC 7 Lie

Demolition workers facing questions over the botched implosion of a building in Turkey only have themselves to blame, since they didn’t follow new laws of physics introduced on 9/11 which dictate that to achieve a perfect demolition of a building all you need to do is set a few office fires and wait for the entire structure to fall perfectly in its own footprint while partially evaporating into dust.

Three detained U.S. hikers share love of travel, learning

Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Joshua Fattal -- three University of California-Berkeley graduates arrested Friday after crossing from Iraq into Iran during a hike -- are seasoned travelers with an appetite for interaction with other cultures, friends and associates said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, if they are expert travelers, in an age where every cell phone has a built-in GPS, how is it that three Jewish Americans "accidentally" crossed the border into Iran?

"Wag the hiker?"

Can drilling electrodes into your brain help you lose weight?

Just how desperate are you to lose weight - desperate enough to have electrodes implanted in your brain? That's the latest approach to tackling obesity now being tested.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We can tackle obesity by banning food additives that cause people to eat (and spend) more such as MSG, Aspartame, SBGH, HFCS, etc.

Meanwhile, can we drill electrodes into the brains of politicians to control greed and corruption?

$100 Million Payday Poses Problem for Pay Czar

In a few weeks, the Treasury Department's czar of executive pay will have to answer this $100 million question: Should Andrew J. Hall get his bonus?

Mr. Hall, the 58-year-old head of Phibro, a small commodities trading firm in Westport, Conn., is due for a nine-figure payday, his cut of profits from a characteristically aggressive year of bets in the oil market.

There is little doubt that Mr. Hall is owed the money under his contract. The problem is that his contract is with Citigroup, which was saved with roughly $45 billion in taxpayer aid.

Barack Obama faces 30 death threats a day, stretching US Secret Service

US President Barack Obama is the target of more than 30 potential death threats a day and is being protected by an increasingly over-stretched and under-resourced Secret Service, according to a new book.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now there is a swell bit of information to allow leaked into the public!

In any event, the ones that threaten aren't the problem. The world is full of idiots who bluff and bluster. It's the angry people who refuse to give an advance warning that are the real danger!

Why Bernanke Is in Panic Mode

Bernanke says that Congress can have access to an audit at any time. Sure it can – an audit vetted and sanitized by the FED, where no one knows which banks got what bailout money. This is an audit in the way a CIA audit is an audit. The main differences are these: (1) the CIA legally operates only outside the borders of the United States; (2) the CIA can assassinate any uncooperative Congressman who insists on a full audit. The FED does not have the second power, but it is not limited by the first restriction.

What has Bernanke panicked is this: the Federal Reserve has bailed out the biggest banks and has let almost 100 little ones die. This is crony capitalism at its most notorious.

Britain invaded by power-crazed super-ants that cause blackouts and fires

Britain has been invaded by hordes of foreign kamikaze ants that cause blackouts - due to their obsession with electricity.

The first colony of lasius neglectus - the Asian super-ant - recorded in the UK has been found at one of the National Trust's most historic buildings. They can't resist electricity and swarms can zap cables, leading to blazes.

The invasive species which form huge colonies, have already spread quickly through Europe and is resistant to insect poison.

Girl, 11, offered refund by Apple for exploding iPod... but only if she agreed not to tell anyone

Computer giant Apple tried to silence a family after a young girl's iPod exploded and they sought a refund.

The firm told Ken Stanborough it would only return his money if he promised not to speak about the settlement, and threatened legal action if he did.

But he refused, saying he found their letter 'very disturbing'.

The incident, which has left the family £162 out of pocket, comes after it emerged that Apple had allegedly tried to do the same to customers in the U.S.

Scientists fear a revolt by killer robots

A ROBOT that makes a morning cuppa, a fridge that orders the weekly shop, a car that parks itself.

Advances in artificial intelligence promise many benefits, but scientists are privately so worried they may be creating machines which end up outsmarting — and perhaps even endangering — humans that they held a secret meeting to discuss limiting their research.

At the conference, held behind closed doors in Monterey Bay, California, leading researchers warned that mankind might lose control over computer-based systems that carry out a growing share of society’s workload, from waging war to chatting on the phone, and have already reached a level of indestructibility comparable with a cockroach.

A Great Moment in Our History

When we were colonists, and the King and the Parliament needed money from us, and they always seemed to need money, they devised ingenious ways to tax us. One of them was called the Stamp Act. The Parliament decreed that every piece of paper that the Colonists had in their homes; every book, every document, every deed, every lease, every pamphlet, every poster to be nailed to a tree had to have the King’s stamp on it. You think going to a Post Office is bad? You had to go to a British Government office and buy a stamp with the King’s picture.

This Depression is just beginning

Too bad Pulitzers aren't handed out for blog-entries. This year's award would go to Zero Hedge for its "The 'Money on the Sidelines' Fallacy" post. This short entry shows why the economy will continue its downward slide and why the US consumer will not get off the mat and resume spending as he has in the past. The fact is the Net Wealth of US Households has "declined from a peak of $22 trillion to just under $12 trillion in early March."


The problem is compounded by the fact that Total US Household debt, as of first quarter 2009, amounts to roughly $13 trillion, and has stayed within that range for the last 3 and a half years.

Pre-atttack Iraq cyberwarfare tactics to be used on Iran?

Cyberwarfare Is Full Of Unknowns For U.S. Military
By John Markoff , Thom Shanker , New York Times News Service Published on 8/2/2009
...the American military and its partners in the intelligence agencies did receive approval to degrade Iraq's military and government communications systems in the early hours of the war in 2003. And that attack did produce collateral damage. Besides blowing up cell-phone towers and communications grids, the offensive included electronic jamming and digital attacks against Iraq's telephone networks. American officials also contacted international communications companies that provided satellite-phone and cell-phone coverage to Iraq to alert them to possible jamming and ask their assistance in turning off certain channels.
