Why are there No Hammers on the Bus?

Such a seemingly random observation such as the missing emergency hammers in a bus is only significant in that it sheds light on the deceptive and often bogus Israeli premise of security concerns, which as a result, has allowed it to abuse and oppress the Palestinians unimpeded for years. At the risk of oversimplification, it is my strong belief that if this false premise were debunked, things would be very, very different.

Palestinian Children Under Occupation

Palestinian children grow up "under the Israeli occupation, surrounded by cruelty, oppression, killing, starvation and destruction." Yet, like all children, they dream of playing and living normally and safely. Instead, their father may be dead or in prison, their brother killed, their home destroyed, and their mother forced to give birth at an Israeli checkpoint, risking her and the newborn.

Palestinian children grow up differently from most others, their development "distorted by an occupation," destroying their innocence, dreams and well-being. They live in constant fear, forced to grow up while still a child.

Arabs and the Global BDS Movement vs. Apartheid Israel

Indeed we must not only swim with the global tide against Apartheid Israel; we must lead it.

Nor do I need to elucidate on the many reasons why the US Government is in desperate need for yet another war with which to scare the American people into acceptance of more takes and fewer rights and freedoms.

Anyone with half a brain realizes that the US Government, unable to gain support for an invasion of Iran, has changed gears and decided that North Korea will be the next step towards World War III.

Are U.S. Taxpayers Funding Empire Building With Costa Rica?

Michael Edwards
Activist Post

One would think that America is experiencing Boom Times with the way their government is throwing around money lately. The recent announcement that a flotilla of warships and troops will be sent to Costa Rica would ordinarily be laughable for its wastefulness, but with America experiencing an unemployment rate north of 20% and the median duration of unemployment at the highest in the last 50 years, this should be no laughing matter.

Many Americans do not know much about Costa Rica, its history, or its current political landscape. It might be worth knowing exactly how and where American tax dollars are being spent. Here are some basic facts about Costa Rica:

killed our leaders, and surrounded our people at Wounded Knee again
in 1973. Revenge is why they today prosecute Indian people for the

Homeland Security for Whom?

At the time I said: "This homeland security boondoggle is the biggest reorganization of the U.S. government in 50 years. It might even bankrupt the country and, perhaps intentionally, throw it into a Depression. That remains to be seen. What is certain is that at a cost of $50 billion in taxpayer's money, the homeland security infrastructure will provide Bush with 170,000 political cadres, and the internal security he needs to assure the continuity of his political power indefinitely. Except for providing Bush with political internal security, there is no need for the Department of Homeland Security; it is a Trojan Horse through which Bush will unleash his ideological storm troopers and exploit his ill-gotten power to achieve permanent political dominance."

Bernanke: Recovery 'unusually uncertain'

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned Congress Wednesday that the economic outlook remains "unusually uncertain."

In his prepared testimony for the Fed's semi-annual report to Congress, Bernanke offered the most extensive look yet at the Fed's plans for pulling money out of the system and raising short term rates, as the economy improves. But his outlook did not call for a quick recovery from the Great Recession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bernanke(and Obama) are looking for a quick fix to the economy, more shadow than substance, accomplished with accounting tricks and changes to the rules between now and November. But the had reality is that the "Jobless Recovery" is a myth, just like the "Service Economy" was back in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Either your nation makes a good product at a good price that other nations want to buy,or your economy is doomed. Despite the hallucinations of Wall Street, money does not grow simply by shaking it back and forth with great vigor. Labor precedes wealth. All economies are founded on productivity. Anything else is wishful thinking.

Next time you're in line at the grocery store and you roll your eyes at the person with two carts full of items refusing to leave the 10-items-or-fewer line, you might be in trouble with the law -- at least if you live in Elmhurst, Illinois. Officials of the Chicago suburb are looking into finding a way of putting an end to the practice by legal means.

The idiocy stems from a recent city council meeting where an Elmhurst resident was ejected from the room after rolling her eyes in reaction to something that was said by a council member.

Obama Mortgage Plan May Fuel Wave of Foreclosures

The Obama administration's effort to help those at risk of losing their homes is failing to aid many and could spur a rise in foreclosures that would further depress the housing industry.

More foreclosures would force down home prices and that would deter already-ailing homebuilders from starting new projects.

As a result, the economic rebound could suffer. Each new home built creates, on average, the equivalent of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in taxes paid to local and federal authorities, according to the National Association of Home Builders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember that it is in the interests of the bank and government to keep housing as expensive as possible, to extract the greatest possible profit from you over your lifetime.

Paper: CIA now pretending contractors are CIA officers

The Washington Post's Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Dana Priest drove another stake into the heart of the US military industrial complex in today's Post:

In June, a stone carver from Manassas chiseled another perfect star into a marble wall at CIA headquarters, one of 22 for agency workers killed in the global war initiated by the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The intent of the memorial is to publicly honor the courage of those who died in the line of duty, but it also conceals a deeper story about government in the post-9/11 era: Eight of the 22 were not CIA officers at all. They were private contractors.

Turkish FM met Hamas supremo in Damascus

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with Hamas supremo Khaled Meshaal in Damascus, Anatolia news agency reported Tuesday, a move that threatens to fan fresh tensions with Israel.

The two men met on Monday to discuss efforts to heal the rift between Hamas — the resistance militant group controlling the Gaza Strip — and the Fatah faction of Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas.

The Middle East peace process was also on their agenda, Anatolia said.

The meeting took place amid simmering tensions between Turkey and its one-time ally Israel over the killing of nine Turks on May 31 in an Israeli raid on a Turkish ship that was part of a flotilla carrying aid to Gaza.

Israel has reacted angrily to previous contacts between Turkish officials and Hamas.

Senior EPA Analyst: “Government [Agencies] Have Been Sock Puppets for BP In This Cover Up”

We have people, wildlife—we have dolphins that are hemorrhaging. People who work near it are hemorrhaging internally. And that’s what dispersants are supposed to do. EPA now is taking the position that they really don’t know how dangerous it is, even though if you read the label, it tells you how dangerous it is. And, for example, in the Exxon Valdez case, people who worked with dispersants, most of them are dead now. The average death age is around fifty. It’s very dangerous, and it’s an economic—it’s an economic protector of BP, not an environmental protector of the public.

Indiana Jones and the Salvation of the Swastika

The swastika is over seven thousand years old and was as close to ubiquitous as symbols get. It was common coinage in: North and South America, Europe and Asia Minor, the Subcontinent, as well as the entire Orient. Astoundingly, in every place it was in use it was viewed as a symbol of felicity and good luck. The irresistible question is: Was there ever a symbol to match it? Keep in mind that it arose independently on three continents and each with the same meaning. In terms of a biblical conflating of symbols with the supernatural, the swastika is definitely spooky.

White House Criticized for Summary Firing of USDA Official as Race Controversy Grows

The tape and firing continued a political controversy that began last week when the NAACP passed a resolution condemning the tea party movement for racism. That drew fire from conservatives like Sarah Palin as well as African-American tea party-backed candidates across the country who complained the civil rights organization had manufactured a racial controversy.

On his program Tuesday Glenn Beck said Sherrod deserved an opportunity to tell her side of the story before being fired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Breitbart, FOX News, and the White House, together with everyone who demanded Sherrod's head on a platter are looking like horses' rear ends this morning. And I thin they all got suckered because as I speculated on yesterday's radio show, the Democrats are trying to make racism the main issue going into November. This all began when the NAACP stated screaming that the Tea Party was racist (it isn't; it is a tax protest party) triggering this ill-conceived retaliation.

he good news is that racism as an election issue may have just been hoisted on its own petard with this stunt, removing it as a major issue from this campaign.

Mel Gibson's Career Not Over Yet

Media analyst and Hollywood observer James Hirsen tells Newsmax that the Mel Gibson heard ranting and raving against his ex-girlfriend on a series of audiotapes “is not the person that I know.”

Hirsen also cautions that it’s too early to say whether the tapes have destroyed the Oscar-winning actor-director’s career.

We all say things in private moments of anger that we do not wish to be made public. The things I say when (for example) I find out that BOTH 4-month old hard drives are failing in my computer would shut down the radio stations that carry my program.

When one is a celebrity, there is the risk that people will goad you into saying something negative so they can take revenge (or make a fast buck) selling the tape to the media. We went through that out here with Dog the Bounty Hunter who was sold out by a family member. As onerous as some may find Mel's statements, they are in fact covered under the First Amendment right to freely express his opinions.

"A couple of board members were concerned about what will be the financial effect on the organization, but it’s minimal," board member Rob Richards told Haaretz.

On The Israeli Right's New 'Peace' Agenda by Gilad Atzmon

As the Israelis are becoming conscious of their inevitable tragic circumstances, a final desperate attempt to rescue the Zionist project has come to life.

If the ruling kleptocrats, pardon, the Fed, demand on being such an intimate part of everyday life, and procuring all of the population's real wealth and cash producing assets in the process, said population has a choice of either going with this sheepish approach, and meekly allowing the loaded gun to be parked at its temple, or do what Michigan, with its 99.9% real unemployment, has decided to do.

$500,000 Damages in Genetic Rice Trial

A federal jury awarded a rice farmer $500,000 for his claim that genetically modified rice contaminated his crop. It was the third of five "bellwether" trials involving hundreds of lawsuits that farmers have filed against Bayer CropScience. The complaints are the result of an August 2006 announcement that LibertyLink, a herbicide-resistant rice, had somehow been released from testing facilities. The rice had not yet been approved for sale for human consumption, causing rice futures to plunge.

NAACP 'snookered' over video of former USDA employee

The NAACP said in a statement Tuesday that it was "snookered by Fox News" and conservative website publisher Andrew Breitbart.

All immigrants face mandatory language test

Her first language is English. Yet like all other skilled immigrants applying to settle in Canada, the American corporate lawyer must now take a language test to prove her English is good enough to settle here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in the 1980s, when I worked briefly in Germany and Italy, I made a point of learning as much of those languages as I could to be able to get around, because that is the courteous thing to do. I never really mastered those languages, of course, but the mere fact that I was making the attempt impressed the locals and they extended every courtesy to help me along. In contrast, other Americans who showed up assuming that everyone would speak English for them (a group of Texans at Herrenchiemsee is a particularly vivid memory) got a major cold shoulder. Most Germans and Italians do speak excellent English; they just resented the attitude that they had to do it to please the noisy foreigners.

Jurists say Arab's rape conviction sets dangerous precedent

Sabbar Kashur, 30, had consensual sex with a woman after he posed as a Jewish bachelor interested in a long-term relationship.

When the woman found Kashur was not a Jew but an Arab, she filed a police complaint that led to charges of rape and indecent assault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting. There was another country that had laws criminalizing sex between the "pure" race and the "mongrels." Can't recall the name of the place off the top my my head but their leader wore this crazy Charlie Chaplain mustache... :)

The troop levels haven't changed. The troop labels have changed.

Edward Bernays and the Assassination of Democracy

From Episode Two of the film series "The Century of the Self" by Adam Curtis. The nephew of Sigmund Freud, Edward Bernays started his business life as a publicist. While still in his twenties, he was part of the propaganda effort that drove the United States into in World War I (WW I.)

He personally advised several US presidents starting with Woodrow Wilson and counseled numerous corporations and business associations. Hitler's propaganda chief and Nazi henchman Joseph Goebbels was a reader and fan of Bernay's writing in particular Bernay's book "Crystalizing Public Opinion."

In this short excerpt from Curtis's film we see one example of Bernays at work.
