Pound of Flesh

Meaning:
Something which is owed that is ruthlessly required to be paid back.
Reap what one sows: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head." In modern terms; what goes around comes around, aka you get what you deserve.

The pro-Israel lobby and antisemitism

C4's Dispatches has been branded 'antisemitic', but surely Britain's Jewish community can cope with reasoned scrutiny?

U.S. Media and Israel

How is it that Americans are so poorly informed that a large fraction believes that the Palestinians are the illegal settlers in the Occupied Territories? Mr. Rich was asked why he, as a media critic, had remained silent on this biased coverage? Mr. Rich replied, “I’m Jewish.”

His candor is refreshing but what does he mean? Is Mr. Rich suggesting that being Jewish precludes criticizing Israel? Is he suggesting that Jewish American reporters, (and more insidiously, publishers) feel compelled to defend Israel? Where is professional responsibility to the American public?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does being Jewish make it okay to lie to the public?

Americans believe Palestinians are the illegal settlers in the West Bank -- a confusion OK with US media

How we lied to put a killer in power

The world's press was systematically manipulated by British intelligence as part of a plot to overthrow Indonesia's President Sukarno in the 1960s, according to Foreign Office documents. The BBC, the Observer andReuters news agency were all duped into carrying stories manufactured by agents working for the Foreign Office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, you can't rule out that it is being done again with respect to Iran, can you?

Why War is Inevitable – John Kaminski

Just before World War I, the sentiment in America was decidedly pro-German, and more the half of all the immigrants coming to this developing land WERE German. Nobody wanted to get involved in a European war. But the media, owned by the same people who were making the weapons, convinced us, apparently, by suddenly and savagely telling hair-raising false stories about the Germans.

This is the great fact Americans continue to ignore. Instead of understanding that bankers create the wars, we prefer to believe the prejudicial hate speak that emanates from American media that our enemies are “krauts,” “gooks,” and “ragheads,” without remembering, as the great suppressed writers have told us, that the folks who control the money also control everything else.

History Channel loses its balance

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the TV schedule for today on the History Channel.

With only a few exceptions, it is a flood of WW2, Aushwitz, Hitler, Nazis, and Holocaust.

If aliens are intercepting History Channel, they must think our entire history as a species fits into the 20 years in the middle of the last century and nothing of any importance happened either before or since.

Nuclear Agency Warns of More Iran Plants

The United Nations atomic watchdog said Iran could be constructing a number of covert nuclear installations in addition to a secret uranium-enrichment facility the Obama administration disclosed in late September.

The International Atomic Energy Agency also said in a quarterly report released Monday that Iranian officials have told the U.N. that Tehran plans to begin operating the previously unknown nuclear-fuel facility outside the holy city of Qom by 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not the very clever wording to imply that the quarterly report makes the claim about secret installations. In point of fact the quarterly report does not. That claim is made in the so-called IAEA "secret annex", a report "leaked" and denounced as a fraud earlier this year, but apparently resurrected to try to resell the war with Iran.

Rush to Judgment: Talk Radio’s “Truth Detector” Blows a Fuse—Again

It wasn’t unusual that Rush Limbaugh went ballistic on his show, Nov. 13. He does that several times a day.

It wasn’t unusual that he mixed a few facts with opinion and outright lies in his three-hour daily show. Fact checking for the man who calls himself “America’s Truth Detector” is as rare as union organizers working for Walmart.

The Media As Enablers of Government Lies

Why do politicians so easily get away with telling lies? In large part, because the news media are more interested in bonding with politicians than in exposing them. Americans are encouraged to believe that the media will serve as a check and a balance on the government. Instead, the press too often volunteer as unpaid pimps, helping politicians deceive the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not pimps, 'presstitutes'!

How ABC News' Brian Ross Cooked His 'Hasan Contacted Al Qaeda' Scoop

Ross' report yesterday that Hasan had attempted to "make contact with people associated with al Qaeda" took over the internet yesterday and sparked a furious round of speculation that Hasan's attack was part of an Islamic terrorist plot. The headline, "Officials: U.S. Army Told of Hasan's Contacts with al Qaeda," said it all. The far more mundane truth emerged today in the pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post: Hasan had communicated via e-mail with Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical American cleric living in Yemen who formerly served as the imam of a mosque Hasan had attended in Virginia. What did they talk about? From the Washington Post:

Can a mere domain name be defamation? Glenn Beck says yes

Hugely popular conservative talker Glenn Beck has sicced his lawyers on a satirical website that's been up for a week, but the attorneys may have a point on this one. The site, called glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1990.com, toes the line on defamation—and may have stepped across it.

IN JON WE TRUST

With Obama failing to bring the “change” that many believed in, the perceived need to tune in to The Daily Show is unlikely to waver anytime soon. But is the faith many Americans have in Stewart to help them understand their country’s problems justified? The recent interview of a Palestinian politician and a Jewish American peace activist suggests that that faith is seriously misplaced.

In the extended interview (not broadcast on Comedy Central but available on The Daily Show website) with Dr. Mustafa Barghouti and Anna Baltzer, Stewart made up to twenty factual errors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Exactly my concern with that segment.

And why I have quit watching the show.

Citizens On Patrol: The Blogosphere As Regulator

Najarian’s revelation was immediately followed by separate but equally incisive comments from some of the biggest and most influential market commentators out there. None of this was coordinated by a producer at CNBC nor was it orchestrated by the editorial staff at the Wall Street Journal.

Rather, it was an organic meme that spread around the financial web by means of Twitter, WordPress, Blogspot and Typepad.

The mainstream media picked up on this insider trading angle only AFTER the bloggers nailed it, at least from what I’ve seen based on the times of the articles and posts.

Brian Ross, Wrong Again

How many times does he have to get these stories wrong before ABC News cans their hapless and constantly wrong "investigative correspondent" Brian Ross? We suspect he'll be allowed to keep screwing up, again and again and again, so long as his screw-ups result in lots of media attention. Little wonder Ross is one of the only broadcast network news stooges invited on Bill O'Reilly's show, again and again and again.

Clearchannel Hosts Thwarted During Maj. Hasan/ 9/11 Propaganda Session

They then asked for listener input, and one of the first callers says "John and Ken, unless you want to give government authority to ban the koran altogether, then how could you stop people from promoting what's in it?"

Kobylt immediately respond with a declaration of non-rights, stating , "No one has freedom of speech in their workplace, you know that; especially in the military".

The caller, prefacing their response with comments about "terrorism" in order to get the hosts guard down and not be cut off by the time delay, continues "well you know, let's not be naive about terrorism also guys, you know a lot of Bush and Reagan appointees say that 911 was an inside job, that the government demolished those towers".

The Bush/Obama bailout/stimulus plans are not going to work. Both are schemes hatched by a clique of financial insiders. The schemes will redistribute income and wealth from American taxpayers to the shyster banksters, who have destroyed American jobs, ruined the retirement plans of tens of millions of Americans, and worsened the situation of millions of people worldwide who naively trusted American financial institutions. The ongoing theft has simply been recast. Instead of using fraudulent financial instruments, the banksters are using government policy.

The Israeli Spy Ring

"Investigators within the DEA, INS and FBI have all told Fox News that to pursue or even suggest Israeli spying ... is considered career suicide."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 2001, the FBI uncovered the largest spy ring ever found inside the United States, being run by our "friend" Israel.

Half-way through arresting the network of spies, 9-11 happened.

Carl Cameron broadcast a four-part series on the Israeli spy ring, which included the following quote.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

AIPAC immediately went into action and ordered FOX News to erase the story from their website. FOX News obeyed, even to the point of contacting websites with copies of the news story and threatening legal action if the video that Israel found offensive was not removed. Okay, if you want to act like you have something to hide, fine; I won't stop you.

However, in the wake of AIPAC's own recent spy scandal, the media's willingness to cover up Israel's crimes may be waning in the face of growing public awareness of the media's culpability, and the four-part news story is back up at YouTube for all the world to see.

Of particular note are the very nervous comments of the other FOX newscasters trying to reassure us all that just because Mossad agents were linked to 9-11 was no reason to suspect Israel had anything to do with 9-11, because gracious me, Israel would never DO that soft of thing to its benefactors in the United States, right? Right? Of course right!

Climate change belief given same legal status as religion
An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.
In a landmark ruling, Mr Justice Michael Burton said that "a belief in man-made climate change ... is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations".
The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

CBC TV’s “Fifth Estate” Program Airs AE911Truth Nov 27

On September 11 of this year, we were interviewed on September 11 in New York at the We Demand Transparency conference by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's "Fifth Estate" program. This is the equivalent of "60 Minutes" in Canada. It is set to air on November 27.

The producers of the National Geographic Channel assured us that they would air the evidence we highlighted for them on their show 9/11: Science and Conspiracy. They even showed us these segments in their "rough cut," which we were quite satisfied with. However, the final show aired none of our evidence, and they claimed that we had none. We were determined not to let this happen a second time with the CBC.

Fort Hood shooter used as excuse to scapegoat Muslims, Arabs

Lest you think that given Hasan’s name and religion, the backlash against Arabs and Muslims is only natural, recall that when Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people in 1995, no one raised alarms about his Catholic upbringing or his Irish heritage. And when it was discovered that Seung-hui Cho had compared himself to Jesus Christ before killing 32 people and himself at Virginia Tech in 2007, no one called for a “war" on either Christians or Korean-Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last May, John Russell, an Anglo-Saxon, shot 5 soldiers at Fort Hood. Nobody talked about his race of religion. Indeed the story got hardly any coverage at all.

Fox Flu Story Denied by White House

Critical of the reported decision of the administration to use scarce vaccine on detainees, Fox News launched a series of reports including one headlined "Pentagon: Gitmo Detainees to Receive H1N1 Vaccine, Despite White House Claim."

When White House spokesman Robert Gibbs denied the Fox report, that network responded by publishing Mr. Gibbs' denial in a report headlined "White House Responds to Report Terror Suspects Get Priority Treatment for H1N1 Virus."

Fox included a video clip and transcript, which reads:

WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY ROBERT GIBBS: There is no vaccine in Guantanamo, and there's no vaccine on the way to Guantanamo.

QUESTION: So the Pentagon was wrong when they confirmed that on Friday?

GIBBS: I — I don't know what the Pentagon said. I — I know, in asking yesterday, whether or not there was any vaccine there or whether there was any vaccine that was on its way, the answer to both those questions was — was no.

QUESTION: Is that because of the White House stopped it or...

GIBBS: No, that was because there wasn't any there, and there wasn't any on the way.

(*QUESTION: "I thought this administration has banned the use of torture in Guantanamo . Has that policy been reversed ?" )

Summary of 9/11 Research Compiled by Paul Thompson

9/11 was one of the most pivotal days in world history. Its impact will be felt for years to come. You owe it to yourself to go beyond the sound bites and the simplified official story. This is an extremely complicated story with numerous players and motives. Not everything makes sense or fits neatly together. It's a story full of espionage, deceit, and lies. But if there are forces out there tricking us, they can only succeed if we, the general public, remain ignorant and passive.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie ... The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state." --Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945

The silence about vaccine deaths in media is due to the confidential contracts with the vaccine manufacturers.

If you can read French, you will discover at http://www.lepoint2.com/sons/pdf/vaccin-H1N1%20medias.pdf that the maker of PandemRix, that is used in Sweden, passed a secret contract, the same in every European country, which specified a "Green List" of what the government MAY communicate (hardly anything!) and the "Red List" of what may absolutely NOT be made public, like intermediary results of the side effects that appear in the studies of the controversial squalene (and thiomersal) adjuvantated PandemRix until they have been sanitized by Glaxo Smith Kline researchers, and published by GSK themselves.

In 2001, the London Observer published a series of reports claiming an “Iraqi connection” to al-Qaeda, even describing the base in Iraq where the training of terrorists took place and a facility where anthrax was being made as a weapon of mass destruction.

It was all false.

Supplied by US intelligence and Iraqi exiles, planted stories in the British and US media helped then-US president George Bush and then-British prime minister Tony Blair launch an illegal invasion that has caused, according to the most recent study, 1.3 million deaths.

When it Comes to Israel, New Yorker Magazine Censors the Word 'Censored'

Censoring the word "censored"? Sadly, not a joke from a late-night comedy show. The New Yorker magazine staff recently censored the word "censored" in my November 2 ad for www.USMediaAndIsrael.com, a blog that looks at how the New York Times and other corporate media stifle their coverage of Israel.

In addition to my brief story, I also share a copy of the home-drawn political cartoon that the New York Times had censored, plus the backstory of how it came to be.

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Today's banking crisis is the THIRD trillion dollar plus
US-caused financial meltdown in the last twenty years.

Each one of these crises came into being through the same basic
mechanism...the fraudulent over-valuing of financial assets by
Wall Street - with a "wink and a nod" (and sometimes a lot more)
from the White House and Congress.

The fraudulently valued assets stimulate the economy, impart
the illusion of health and then, inevitably, the fraud goes
too far and the whole house of card comes painfully crashing
back to earth.

The three trillion dollar plus frauds were:

Fraud #1: The so-called "Savings and Loan Crisis" of the late 80s

Fraud #2: The so-called "Tech Bubble" of the late 90s

Here is the news: the BBC is no damm good at spelling

The BBC has been criticised after broadcasting a major spelling error on its flagship News At Ten bulletin. In a blunder that would make any schoolchild blush, a graphic headlining the official review into the 2006 Nimrod air disaster was titled 'DAMMING Report'.

The caption should, of course, have read 'Damning Report'.

Bill Moyers bought?

Subsequent to Bill Moyer's interview with Judge Goldstone, his blog erupted with criticism of perceived pro-Israel bias.

Personally I was inclined to allow Bill the benefit of the doubt and assume he was acting devil's advocate, an acceptable journalistic technique. This despite my unease that he had neglected to mention the truce that Hamas had observed (despite the Israeli blockade and continued hostility):

The debate on Bill's blog soon became a troll-fest with the usual memes being trotted out. In response to one particularly offensive poster, I wrote a rebuttal of an entry maligning the activities of the Mufti - an evergreen and (in my view unsupported) theme of the hasbara. The site did not post it. I tried again a few days later and found the post blocked again.

Swine flu vaccine shots eliminate wrinkles, bad breath and varicose veins, too

The propaganda push for flu vaccines has reached a level of absurdity that's just begging to be made fun of. Today, a flu vaccine story appearing in Reuters claimed that injecting pregnant women with flu shots would increase the birth weight of their babies by half a pound. That same story claimed flu shots are so healthy for pregnant women that they also prevent premature births.

It even quotes a team of experts who claim that injecting an expectant mother with a flu shot would reduce the hospitalization of her infants, explaining: "Flu vaccine given to women during pregnancy is 85 percent effective in preventing hospitalization in their infants under 6 months of age."

A Graphic History of Newspaper Circulation Over the Last Two Decades

Every six months, the Audit Bureau of Circulations releases data about newspapers and how many people subscribe to them. And then everyone writes a story about how some newspapers declined some amount over the year previous. Well, that's no way to look at data! It's confusing—and it obscures larger trends. So we've taken chunks of data for the major newspapers, going back to 1990, and graphed it, so you can see what's actually happened to newspaper circulation.

News gets worse for the mainstream media

At the same time, there’s a large appetite for the new media world where the MSM gatekeepers no longer hold as much clout, and “he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is the first time any MSM observer has even approached the real issue.

The corporate media; radio, TV, newspapers, and magazines, all stood shoulder to shoulder with the US Government when it lied us all into a pointless war of conquest in Iraq.

Everybody knows the government did it.

And everybody knows the corporate media helped them do it.

And THAT is why the public has turned away from the corporate media.

The Corporate media could easily win back their audience simply by reporting the truth, but just the last few days I noticed History Channel re-selling the "Lone Assassin" cover story for the JFK assassination, and NatGeo bashing alternative theories of what brought down the World Trade Towers (and like the official 9-11 report, no mention of why WTC-7 could have come down the way it did). So, the corporate media is not only perceived as liars, but unrepentant and shameless ones at that.

I have no sympathy for the newspapers and TV newsrooms having to shed staff and close their doors. They did it to themselves. They betrayed the public trust and sold their honor and their souls for a free ride on Air Force One.

CNBC Viewership Plunges 50% In October

If anyone wants to know why CNBC anchors are so pale and nervous these days, look no further. As Comcast CEO Brian Edwards considers what to keep and what to, well, cut, post his digestion of NBC Universal (assuming deal rumors are true naturally) his eyes likely cast casual nervous glances at Nielsen reports of CNBC viewership.

Newspapers Cut To Black

Business executives and scientists, unlike theologians and psychologists, believe that every problem has a solution. Unfortunately, that is not true. The best minds in the media industry have been working on the newspaper puzzle for years. Not a single person has come up with a workable solution to the industry’s problems, probably because there isn’t one.

Newspapers can buy time by cutting circulation and people to save costs. An economic recovery may buy the industry even more time. It has been said far too often, but, with the new September 30 circulation figures in hand, it is worth saying again. For the newspaper industry a huge success on the Internet is all that is left. All the other options are gone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The newspapers did it to themselves. They stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the government as it lied us all into pointless and apparently unwinnable wars of conquest against nations that had not actually done anything to deserve being attacked.

This created the phenomenon of the blogs who analyzed the news in an honest and objective way absent from the corporate media and pointed out where the obvious lies were to be found.

If the newspapers had told the TRUTH and only the TRUTH, they would still be profitable and I would happily be doing visual effects for movies. But the corporate media bartered their honor and soul for a free ride on Air Force One, got caught, and now are paying the price.

PBS - Were War Crimes Committed in Gaza?

From the comments: Gee Bill - could you make your pro-Israeli bias any more obvious? How bizarre! This is what happens when Christians take the Bible literally. Sorry; if Israel commits war crimes and crimes against humanity, it can't be excused by religious nuttiness. It's one standard for all nations and all armies. The Palestinians are human beings. A true Christian would know that! Have you noticed that Israel never takes responsibility for anything? The excuse always comes down to Israel being exempt from participation in world values.

When one says that Israël has the right to defend itself, I'm not sure how this applies in a case where they are occupying another nation's, the Palestinian's, territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's play "Spot the paid Israeli shills!"

Facebook Labels Fall Of The Republic “Abusive,” Blocks Links

The social networking giant Facebook.com has labeled Alex Jones’ new documentary film Fall Of The Republic to be “abusive” and is blocking some links to the film from its website, preventing the movie from spreading virally like the Obama Deception, which received tens of millions of viewers despite a Facebook policy to block it too.

A You Tube video illustrates that when a Facebook user attempts to ’share’ a link to the video, that is post it as a status update on their Facebook page, they get a message telling them the function has been blocked because the video is “abusive”.

The full message reads, “Warning: This Message Contains Blocked Content – Some content in this message has been reported as abusive by Facebook users.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Twitter is not blocking it as far as I can see, so share the video links there.

Iran fails to accept U.N.-drafted nuclear deal

Iran has repeatedly rejected U.N. and IAEA calls on it to curb enrichment or grant unfettered U.N. inspections, meant to verify that it is not trying to develop nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This story feels like a plant to scuttle the reports of a successful deal coming from other sources, primarily because of the line quoted above, which is a fabrication. Iran allows all inspections required by the IAIA under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

It is Israel that refuses to allow inspections.

Chris Matthews on Disobeying Illegal Orders

To think the president might violate the Constitution is the same as thinking UN black helicopters will kidnap you. And forget about Japanese Internment, the Patriot Act and the Bush administration’s abuses, and all other historical reasons to be wary of political power – to worry about liberty now is purely partisan, and only fueled by anti-Obama hysteria.

Flu Vaccine Brainwashing In Prime Time ABC Show

A prime time ABC drama show that aired last week featured an almost subliminal example of brainwashing that encouraged people to take the swine flu shot, proving that the propaganda campaign to sell people on the government’s health agenda is widespread and not just confined to this week’s admitted campaign to implant suggestive messages in network TV broadcasts.

Tampabay.com now requires registration for comments on stories

The website is the online version of the St. Petersburg Times newspaper. The paper says the move is to try to stem the flow of “abusive” comments which “violate the company’s standards”.

The way I interpret this latest move by the paper is that they want an easier system to control comments which clash with the Times’ philosophy. The left leaning paper has been called a “Communist rag” by many of its opponents for stories it’s published supporting Marxist ideology...

Must be a reeeeeeeeally slow news day in Hudson, NY

Oct 20 08:59

The New York Times (NYT) newsroom is reeling from today's announcement that the company plans to cut the staff by 100.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the government as it lied us into wars of conquest in Afghanistan and Iraq. In past ages where there really was no alternative the people would swallow down their indignation at being treated like idiots, pretend to accept the apologies of the media, and go back to clipping store coupons.

But that was then and this is now and the people do have an alternative to turn to when the corporate media is caught lying again and again and again.
Now, I don't like to see anyone out of work in these very difficult times, but in truth one of the reasons that we are in such difficult times is that the corporate media abandoned their self-professed role as watchdog on corporate and government malfeasance. They bartered their souls for a ride on Air Force One, betrayed the public trust, and now the public is exacting their revenge by turning away.

Donofrio afraid of Holocaust truth, dumps on-air Rense interview

ZIONIST JEWISH MIND CONTROL
- A CASE STUDY -
By Brother Nathanael Kapner, Copyright 2009
Source: Correspondence By Permission Of Jeff Rense
As a favor to a fellow journalist, Rense recently extended an invitation to an ex-attorney, Leo Donofrio, who has been chasing the spectre of Obama’s true birth place on the Internet and in court. However, just over ten minutes before Donofrio was to present his work on the Rense program, he emailed the host and canceled his guest visit on October 8, 2009, scheduled for 9 PM Pacific Time. Fortunately Mr. Rense happened to glance at his computer screen and saw the email. In any case, Donofrio stated in his email to the show host and on his Blog, that he was canceling his appearance due to his “Holocaust” sensitivities.

White House boasts: We 'control' news media

President Obama's presidential campaign focused on "making" the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was "controlled," White House Communications Director Anita Dunn disclosed to the Dominican government at a videotaped conference.

"Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control," said Dunn.

Mao and Rockefeller: Beck Fails to Call Out the Real Monsters

Beck wants you to believe the people surrounding Obama are communists. That’s why he has the Soviet symbol on his blackboard. In fact, the people surrounding Obama — not minor and peripheral figures like Anita Dunn — are bankster operatives, members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group. The really important figures behind Obama are one-world globalists who admire the sort of authoritarianism put into practice by Mao.

Corporate Supremacy and the Rape of a Human Girl

We are fast approaching the time of the next great battle over evolution. The Neo-creationists will be corporations, and they will argue that they could not possibly be descended from human beings.

This isn’t science fiction. Just the other day 30 Republicans voted in the U.S. Senate to deny justice to a human victim of rape in order to protect the so-called sovereign rights of corporations

Obama National Security Adviser to Speak at Anti-Israel Conference

James Jones, President Obama's National Security Advisor, has agreed to be the keynote speaker at the anti-Israel group J Street's first annual conference in Washington next week. While the group bills itself as the "pro Israel" and "pro peace" alternative to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, in reality it is a liberal organization actively campaigning against Israel's right to defend itself.

Government Propaganda To Infest Network TV Shows

An insidious brainwashing program set to be launched next week will “organically” weave the government’s political propaganda into prime time network television shows, with positive talking points about Obama’s environmental, bailout, health care and “servitude” agenda being seamlessly integrated into the content of dramas, reality shows and comedies.

Carter-Ruck Takes On The Internet, and Loses

Rapidly the story of the gagging of the Guardian went inter-stellar on-line. Twitter is full of it (it’s the number one trending topic), blog-posts fizz with indignation. Bloggers are planning to stage a protest demonstration outside Carter -Ruck’s office, if they can be bothered to change out of their PJs and get dressed. There is the possibility of a fresh court hearing.

Ultimately, a story that might have amounted to a boring page lead in the Guardian after the question was answered in the Commons has turned into an internet sensation and potentially a constitutional mini-crisis. Well done Carter-Ruck. Good work.

Update: Carter-Ruck caved in and the Guardian is ungagged. I wonder if the law firm will have the cheek to bill its client for all of its brilliant advice on this matter?
