Tea Baggers NOT in favour of net neutrality?

The Virginia Tea Party Patriot Federation was among the groups that signed the letter. Jamie Radtke, the group’s chairman, said interest in net neutrality is rising in the tea party movement.

“I’ve heard it talked about a lot more on conference calls I’ve been on [recently],” Radtke said. “It’s starting to get onto the radar now.”

Radke said the tea party opposition to net neutrality stems from concerns over increased government power.

Senate Bill S510 Makes it illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell Homegrown Food

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower

Will BP Skip the Relief Well, Declare Mission Accomplished, and Abandon Ship Without Permanently Killing the Oil Leak?

I'm beginning to wonder whether BP keeps on doing one confusing procedure after another, and keeps on saying that the well has been capped, hoping that everyone stops paying attention so that BP can just pack up its bags and slink away while people aren't paying attention.

Relief wells are the best hope for permanently capping the well. But it is possible that BP has messed up the well so badly that the relief wells will fail.

As Cavnar notes, BP has already taken down or blurred most of its underwater camera feeds. BP might just declare "mission accomplished" and skip the relief wells, leaving a ticking time bomb which will pollute the Gulf for years to come.

Israel Shamir: Fear Not

With the destruction of Iran, the countdown for the takeover of Saudi Arabia would begin. In words of a neocon: “Everyone wants to take out Tehran. But real mensch wants to take out ar-Riyadh”. Provided that no attack on Iran is possible without Saudi connivance, the “irony of history” will be complete. The enemies of Israel will be taken out one after another, each with help of the next, still unsuspecting victim.

This is another pathetic and obvious attempt to incite racial tensions ahead of the November elections. With the so-called "white supremacist" serial stabber now exposed as an Israeli, count on Obama and the Democrats to play every single racism gambit they can think of, because if the election remains about the economy and the wars and gulf oil disaster, the GOP may well retake both houses of Congress.

The U.S. War Addiction

When George Bush launched the Iraq War, it was obvious to any observer that we were in that country because they had oil, and our government wanted that oil. But this isn't the only time that our military has been used to help businesses take control of the natural resources of a country. In fact, it's happened a lot more than you might think. Mike Papantonio talks about our war addiction, and how US corporations are helping to make these wars self-perpetuating, with David DeGraw, a founding member of the Amped Status blog.

J7: The July 7th (London bombings) Truth Campaign recommended videos

Of the mainstream documentaries that have appeared in the five years since 7/7, all have stuck steadfastly to the official narrative of events, never daring to peer behind the superficial story that has been spun to explain away 56 deaths on the London transport network. No mainstream documentary has ever ventured into the territory that was once known as investigative journalism to look beyond the official narrative, nor have they ever endeavoured in earnest to elicit more information from the government and police than that which is already available.

With regard to the independently made documentaries available on the Internet, there was for a long time only one documentary that J7 would recommend anyone view, namely Ludicrous Diversion. Four years since the release of Ludicrous Diversion and another 7/7 documentary has appeared that receives the J7 seal of approval, 7/7: Seeds of Deconstruction.

Pat Tillman's Father To Army Investigator: 'F--- You... And Yours'

"You are a General," Tillman's father writes Jones after being presented with a briefing book of his findings. "There is no way a man like you, with your intelligence, education, military, experience, responsibilities (primarily for difficult situations), and rank... believes the conclusions reached in the March 31, 2005 Briefing Book. But your signature is on it. I assume, therefore, that you are part of this shameless bullshit. I embarrassed myself by treating you with respect [on] March 31, 2005. I thought your rank deserved it and anticipated something different from the new and improved investigation. I won't act so hypocritically if we meet again."

Third of WHO advisers on the swine flu epidemic that never was received support from drugs firms

A third of the experts advising the World Health Organisation about the swine flu pandemic had ties to drugs firms, it has emerged.

Five of the 15 specialists who sat on the emergency committee had received funding from pharmaceutical giants, or were linked to them through their research.

The revelation will prompt speculation that the 'pandemic' was wildly overestimated and largely fuelled by the drugs industry who stood to benefit from the panic.

Something Stinks About Wikileaks

"Any time people with power plan in secret, they are conducting a conspiracy. So there are conspiracies everywhere. There are also crazed conspiracy theories. It's important not to confuse these two...." What about 9/11?: "I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud." What about the Bilderberg Conference?: "That is vaguely conspiratorial, in a networking sense. We have published their meeting notes."

That statement from a person who has built a reputation on being anti-establishment is more than notable.

John McCain:Closer Look at Evil (Part 13)

By Jeff Gates

Treason in Plain Sight

The same two Senators who insisted that the U.S. invade Iraq on false intelligence are now marketing Pakistan as the next in a series of “plausible” Evil Doers.

Their complicity runs deep. The consistency of their conduct confirms that what we see again unfolding is treason—ongoing in plain sight and, to date, with legal impunity.

With transparency, that impunity will end. With exposure, accountability will follow. The Founders made treason a capital crime for good reason.

Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman, an outspoken Jewish Zionist, have long been political partners and fellow travelers. Along with Senator Jon Kyl, a Christian Zionist from Arizona, they co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.

Revolution Muslim Looks Like a CIA Operation:A New Breed of Mockingbird

Yesterday I posted an angry rant directed at “liberal” Jon Stewart for his “Go Fuck Yourselves” segment which was nothing more than his promotion of the “radical, dangerous, freedom-hating Muslim” meme which only serves to stir-up the old Bush-era “fear the bad Muslims” feelings in your average Americans.

Yesterday, I suggested that this entire “Revolution Muslim” threat against the creators of South Park was an obvious ploy designed to demonize Muslims and that if Jon Stewart had fulfilled his responsibility as a journalist, he would have quickly seen past this obviously staged side-show event.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have not watched "Daily Show" since Jon Stewart sided with the nation that attacked Americans in international waters.

The “Radical” Muslim Group That Threatened South Park Creators Was Founded and Run by Joseph Cohen, a Former Israeli Radical Who Used to Live in a Settlement in the West Bank

South Park ran an unedited image of Muhammad in 2001 in an episode called “Super Best Friends“… and nothing happened.

In fact, the episode had been on the South Park website for viewing at any time for the past few years (they just removed it)… and nothing happened.

For 4 seasons they had that image in their opening segment for every single show… and nothing happened.

So for years on end no Muslim group, “radical” or otherwise, has threatened Matt and Trey or Comedy Central about the image of Muhammad that has been available for all to see every single day.

The country behind this propaganda is the US . . ." -- Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz musician, author and activist.

(http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/touching-left-islam-israeli-lobby-chom... - 27 June 2010)

Among the points made:

1. In order to create a large Israeli empire, Israel is planning to expel all the Palestinians from Israel and Palestine.

And Israel is planning to have Iran attacked.

Israel is prepared to ignore the USA if necessary.

2. US foreign and defence policy has been shaped by AIPAC (the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee).

Hidden Intelligence Operation Behind the Wikileaks Release of "Secret" Documents?

Since the dramatic release of a US military film of a US airborne shooting of unarmed journalists in Iraq, Wiki-Leaks has gained global notoreity and credibility as a daring website that releases sensitive material to the public from whistleblowers within various governments. Their latest “coup” involved alleged leak of thousands of pages of supposedly sensitive documents regarding US informers within the Taliban in Afghanistan and their ties to senior people linked to Pakistan’s ISI military intelligence. The evidence suggests however that far from an honest leak, it is a calculated disinformation to the gain of the US and perhaps Israeli and Indian intelligence and a coverup of the US and Western role in drug trafficking out of Afghanistan.

PHILIP GIRALDI: Hillary’s Enemies List

Wake Up America!

Some might recall the enemies list that President Richard Nixon kept in his desk. The list was appended to a memo that asked “how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies?” Named were a number of journalists who had criticized Nixon’s administration as well as celebrities like actors Gregory Peck and Paul Newman and athletes like Joe Namath. Nixon was clearly on to something because in today’s America we have a new enemies list, one that is updated annually to make sure that nary a single malefactor is overlooked. It is the US State Department’s Country Reports on Terrorism, which was unveiled last week in its 2009 version at a briefing conducted by Ambassador Daniel Benjamin , Foggy Bottom’s Coordinator for Counterterrorism.

WMR has previously reported that it was Mossad, along with CIA contract operatives in Lebanon, that carried out the assassination of Hariri.

Woman shot by G20 police using rubber bullets speaks out

I was at the jail solidarity rally on Sunday June 27th, outside of the detention centre in support of my friends who had been surrounded and arrested in Queen's Park, the designated protest zone, the day before. Sunday's protest followed the route decided upon by the police, and was proceeding peacefully. A line of riot police formed between us and the detention centre. Without warning, two unmarked minivans screeched to a stop behind the police line. A number of plainclothes men stormed through the line and into the crowd, violently pushing two people into the ground. The people were dragged along the pavement and aggressively thrown into the vans and the vans took off. To all who were there, this appeared to be a strategically orchestrated kidnapping. The small woman who was snatched later became my cellmate. She told me of being choked and sat on by two large men to the verge of unconsciousness. A third man pulled her hair and all three verbally abused her, referring to her as "cunt," "bitch," "whore" and "street trash" on the way to the detention centre. All three refused to identify themselves.

Another insult to Christianity… meet the Methodist Friends of Israel

“The decision is a response to a call from a group of Palestinian Christians, a growing number of Jewish organizations, both inside Israel and worldwide, and the World Council of Churches,” said the press release.

BP Links Compensation With Continued Oil Production In The Gulf

P has managed to link the fate of its $20 billion oil spill victims compensation fund with its continued ability to pump oil from the Gulf of Mexico. The voluntary trust agreement negotiated with the Department of Justice is not with the British-based multinational, or even with BP America, but with a fairly remote subsidiary, BP Exploration & Production Inc. (BPEC) -- a Delaware corporation that operates BP's Gulf oil leases.

So if BP's drilling revenues from the Gulf suddenly vanished, so, presumably, would the compensation fund, said Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen's Energy Program.

What kind of country has secret sentences?”

Under the agreement, Qosi also admitted working as Bin Laden's bodyguard and helping him avoid capture by US forces.

Identified Gene May Bring on New Superbug

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is starting to sound like a repeat of the "When Pigs Fly" flu scam of last year. For one thing, genes tend to be species-specific. It is rare for a gene to simply hop from one microbe to the other and still function, because the actions of any one gene depend on the presence of other genes that work with it. And the statement that a microbe can be made resistant to all known antibiotics by this one gene smells fishy, because there are so many different vectors that anti-biotics use to function.

Ashurst: Border Manifesto #2
To me the significance of this is profound. Why would the Border Patrol and our National Guard pass up an opportunity to establish a look out in an excellent spot right on the border, only to choose a spot of lesser quality 22 miles north of the border? Is this mere coincidence? In my opinion, “No.” It is planned and deliberate incompetence.
"....ICE’s mission is being skewed toward supporting an unflinching goal of amnesty by refusing to allow agents to do their job, allowing criminal aliens to roam free, depleting resources for key enforcement initiatives that preceded this administration, misrepresenting facts and programs, demeaning the extent of the criminal alien problem, and geared to support amnesty.”"

PPL officials said freon gas was leaking from an important equipment cooling system inside unit one's reactor building. Workers were forced to evacuate the area.

Cybersecurity Lie Exposed: Power Plants Are Not Connected To The Internet

Senator Joe Lieberman’s draconian Internet takeover legislation, the 197-page Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, is being promoted as a vital tool to protect vulnerable infrastructure hubs from terrorist attacks, but as a recent Wall Street Journal report makes clear, large industrial power and water plants are not even connected to the public Internet.

We are constantly told that the Internet needs to be subject to government control because cyberterrorists could hack in and bring down the national power grid. However, the vast majority of the U.S. power infrastructure is not connected to the Internet. It will only be connected to the Internet if the government accelerates the implementation of “smart grid” technology, so in this sense, the government itself is leaving the power grid more vulnerable to hackers by its own programs.

Freedom of Information Act exemption for SEC stirs protests

It’s been less than a month since the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill was signed into law, and there’s already a serious bipartisan effort to amend part of it.

At issue is a provision that grants an exemption from the Freedom of Information Act to the agency for certain information received by the Securities and Exchange Commission from entities it regulates

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, even as Congress votes to turn over trillions more taxpayer dollars to Wall Street, it is telling the public that what Wall Street does with the money or what the SEC finds out they do with the money, is nobody's business.

What this tells us is that there are hundreds more Bernie Madoffs out there scamming the gullible investors,m being protected by the SEC just as they protected Bernie for 12 years, and you are not allowed to know about it. Apparently Wall Street is so crooked the best solution is not to call attention to it, lest the whole thing collapse.

According to the ER nurses, in the southern Mississippi and Louisiana areas there have been more than 600 cases of what their staffs have appropriately named the "BP flu". The vast majority of these "flu" cases are with those people who are working along the coast, as well as further offshore, on boats; and those who live along the southernmost areas along the Gulf of Mexico. One might initially think - based on mainstream media reports - that these flu-like symptoms are nothing to be overly concerned about. This is not a matter of 'take two aspirins and call me in the morning'. Nothing could be further from the truth.

White Men Rescue Brown Women From Brown Men..

The media is, again, drumming up support for expansion of the war in Afghanistan by appealing to women’s rights. This was precisely the same strategy employed during the war in Iraq, when statistics about female kidnapping, honor killings and so on were massaged to argue that further American intervention in the area was needed, when, in point of fact, the opposite was true - it was the US intervention that had provoked the deterioration in the general economic picture and, as a consequence, the treatment of women. This is in keeping with the old colonial strategy described by post-colonial feminist critics - “White men rescuing brown women from brown men…”

A number of happenings seem to be converging toward what Castro has predicted - that there will be attacks on Iran and North Korea that will devastate whole populations. (All relevant news links are listed below my comments.)

For starters, I have never doubted that Rafik Hariri's assassination was the work of Israeli/US/UK "intelligence" in a failed attempt to weaken Lebanon, whose water is coveted by Israel and whose strategic location is coveted as a base of operations against Iran. As usual, Israel got a little more than it bargained for when it recently provoked yet another skirmish on the Lebanese border, and (in a fit of pique?) has since fired on a Lebanese fishing boat. At the same time they are attempting to create chaos through accusations that members of Hezbollah assassinated Hariri, just as Hezbollah is about to announce evidence that Israel did it.

Why hemp could save the world

That title probably should say, "Why hemp could have saved the world all along," because the plant should never have been banned in the first place, and its prohibition has led to untold suffering around the globe. If we—the global human population—had been able to grow the miracle plant hemp (Cannabis genus) locally and to use it for local industries and businesses, including and especially for fuel, we would never have needed to be addicted to oil, for one, an addiction that is at the root of much misery. We would never have allowed ourselves to be lorded over by international oil-mongers whose crimes against humanity have become legion, including wholesale invasion of other lands and slaughter of countless people.

US-Iran ‘double swap’ points to peace

By Kaveh L Afrasiabi – (CASMII | Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention)

The United States and Iran have reached a critical juncture, facing the alternative of further tension and escalating conflict spiraling toward military confrontation, or dialogue, diplomatic engagement and reciprocal compromise.

In light of the recent slew of sanctions after sanctions imposed by the United Nations, the United States, the European Union, Canada, Australia and others, it seems that chariots are blazing down the fork in the road toward more conflict. However, there is a glimmer of hope for a diplomatic solution in the form of a “double swap”.

So, this week in Beirut, when I read reports that US President Barack Obama had briefed journalists on Wednesday about US-Iranian issues, especially the possibility of resuming nuclear negotiations, I juxtaposed that against the realities and sentiments I encountered in Iran a few weeks ago. The balance sheet was mixed.

Double Vendetta — The Insanity of the Iran Confrontation [Video]

Anthony Lawson

How long can we allow the maniacs who are driving us to the brink of World War Three to stay in power? We’d better do something soon, or we will all be done for.

My special thanks to Gilad Atzmon, whose reading of the “Israeli Peace Manifesto” helps to point up the gulf between what they say and what they do.

Glass houses in the Liberty Movement: Sovereignty for me but not for you

John Galt
Activist Post

One of the tactics used by the Elite to maintain their sinister matrix of control is division. In other words, they keep the sheep in a constant state of hate and fear in order to divide and conquer. It's amazing that there are still people in the Truth-Liberty movement who continue to hate on their fellow peasants. The anti-immigrant, anti-gay, and anti-Ground Zero mosque groups are just a few recent examples who have attempted to infiltrate the Liberty movement.

A Cakewalk Against Iran

The reality is that an Israeli attack on Iran will trigger an all-out war in the region, which will quickly include the United States. It might or might not eliminate Iran’s technical ability to build a nuclear weapon and it would almost certainly accelerate that process. It would not bring down the Iranian regime and usher in reformers who would embrace Israel and the United States while singing "Kumbaya" around the campfire. It would be extremely nasty, would not solve any problems in the Middle East, and would kill tens of thousands of innocent people, if not more. It could easily lead to the use of nuclear weapons by either the United States or Israel.

Targeting Iran: Is the US Administration Planning a Nuclear Holocaust?

The Israeli government is preparing to use nuclear weapons in its next war with the Islamic world. Here where I live, people often talk of the Holocaust. But each and every nuclear bomb is a Holocaust in itself. It can kill, devastate cities, destroy entire peoples.

Igniting Armageddon in The Middle East

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard is digging mass graves for American soldiers in preparation for a war over its nuclear programme, according to a former senior commander.

An Israeli strike would ignite Armageddon in the Middle East, and it would spread to the rest of the world. The question that poses itself is: Is the American Congress really crazy to support such an Israeli strike?

The Lies Of Hiroshima Are The Lies Of Today.

Since 1945, the United States is believed to have been on the brink of using nuclear weapons at least three times. In waging their bogus "war on terror", the present governments in Washington and London have declared they are prepared to make "pre-emptive" nuclear strikes against non-nuclear states. With each stroke toward the midnight of a nuclear Armageddon, the lies of justification grow more outrageous. Iran is the current "threat". But Iran has no nuclear weapons and the disinformation that it is planning a nuclear arsenal comes largely from a discredited CIA-sponsored Iranian opposition group, the MEK - just as the lies about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction originated with the Iraqi National Congress, set up by Washington.

The role of western journalism in erecting this straw man is critical. That America's Defence Intelligence Estimate says "with high confidence" that Iran gave up its nuclear weapons programme in 2003 has been consigned to the memory hole. That Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never threatened to "wipe Israel off the map" is of no interest. But such has been the mantra of this media "fact" that in his recent, obsequious performance before the Israeli parliament, Gordon Brown alluded to it as he threatened Iran, yet again.

Aug 10 20:23

Targeting Iran: Is the US Administration Planning a Nuclear Holocaust?

But nuclear holocausts are not front page news! In the words of Mordechai Vanunu,

The Israeli government is preparing to use nuclear weapons in its next war with the Islamic world. Here where I live, people often talk of the Holocaust. But each and every nuclear bomb is a Holocaust in itself. It can kill, devastate cities, destroy entire peoples. (See interview with Mordechai Vanunu, December 2005).

Realities are turned upside down. In a twisted logic, a "humanitarian war" using tactical nuclear weapons, which according to "expert scientific opinion" are "harmless to the surrounding civilian population" is upheld as a means to protecting Israel and the Western World from a nuclear attack.

America's mini-nukes with an explosive capacity of up to six times a Hiroshima bomb are upheld by authoritative scientific opinion as a humanitarian bomb, whereas Iran's nonexistent nuclear weapons are branded as an indisputable threat to global security.

Anti-terror hotline advert banned

A police advert encouraging the public to report suspected terrorists has been banned for potentially causing "serious offence" to law-abiding citizens, a watchdog has said.

The radio advert for the Anti-Terrorist Hotline listed "suspicious" behaviour worth reporting to the police as: "The man at the end of the street doesn't talk to his neighbours much, because he likes to keep himself to himself. He pays with cash because he doesn't have a bank card, and he keeps his curtains closed because his house is on a bus route."

It continued: "This may mean nothing, but together it could all add up to you having suspicions. We all have a role to play in combating terrorism. If you see anything suspicious call the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline. If you suspect it, report it."

Snopes Exposed

I have recently discovered that Snopes.com is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go to You tube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying these things. So you see, you cannot and should not trust Snopes.com, ever for anything that remotely resembles truth! I don't even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore.

Google and Verizon Usher in the Internets

Monday's announcement that Verizon and Google will create a distinct wireless experience put net neutrality discussions not so much on the back burner as in the recycling bin.

Although early speculation suggested that the corporate giants were going to create the equivalent of an E-Z Pass lane for content providers willing to pay for higher content speeds, the actual plan is to create not just what amounts to a distinct "set of pipes" to funnel high-bandwidth content, but to also clearly define the wireless Internet as a rules-free zone that allows providers to determine what content reaches consumers.

"it’s more cost effective for ya’ll to sink the oil"

To the representatives’ request to have someone explain to him why BP would not want to clean up the oil, Blanchard angrily obliged:“Because it’s more cost effective for ya’ll to come at night and sink the son-of-a-bitch! When the oil’s coming around, they call ya’ll, they tell ya’ll where the oil’s at, and the first thing ya’ll do is tell them to go the other way, ya’ll send the planes, and ya’ll fucking sink it!

GOVERNMENT ASSISTED BP IN COVERING UP EFFECTS OF SPILL

Another disturbing twist in the Gulf Oil Crisis saga is the media blackout which occurred in late May/early June. BP set up clean-up camps along the gulf coast to remove oil and tar from beaches. During this period reporters were forbidden to talk to cleanup workers--either on or off the clock--or suffer a possible $40,000 fine or Class B felony charge. I started to see videos crop up in alternative news outlets showing Blackwater-type guards forcing news reporters away from the area. I was shocked (mainly because it was allowed) to see mainstream media regular Anderson Cooper discussing the 65 feet distance required between the media and the cleanup response areas (including beaches and vessels) without permission from the Port of New Orleans.

The Elders of Anti-Zion

The initiatives of small local groups in various countries are not what they appear to be. Far from it! They are part of a world-wide, organized and coordinated conspiracy, which uses every means to achieve their nefarious aim. Unlike the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, the forged document that was produced a hundred years ago, this is a genuine plot, something like the “Protocols of the Elders of Anti-Zion”.

Only one detail was missing in the disclosure: where is the secret headquarters of this international conspiracy?

Happily, I am in a position to provide the missing information. Shocking as it may sound, the headquarters of the Elders of Anti-Zion is located in Jerusalem.

Farm animals R US

If the CDC declares a disease outbreak, DHS and the military would be called into to go onto farms to slaughter US farmers' animals in the millions. S 510 even includes plans for disposing of the carcasses.

The problem is that this is the same CDC which put out false numbers to the public about a mild swine flu. They generated terror in people and billions in sales (for vaccine manufacturers), and blocked a CBS investigation into their suspect claim of a huge numbers of swine flu cases.

Israel threatens pullout from UN probe

Israel has threatened to pull out of a UN investigation into its May 31 attack on a Gaza-bound aid convoy as the international probe seeks to question Israeli soldiers.

Despite Israeli efforts to appease the global enrage over the death of nine Turkish activists onboard the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, the United Nations named its own panel in August to look into the deadly incident.

Israel agreed to participate in the UN probe but has opposed to have its military forces involved in the fatal onslaught grilled over the attack which was carried out in international waters.

Tel Aviv insisted that Israel's agreement was conditional on the panel relying on reports from Israel's own military inquiry, not testimony from soldiers.

Vitaminwater revealed as non-healthy beverage by Coca-Cola's own lawyers

Do you ever wonder things like "Who is actually gullible enough to think that Vitaminwater is healthy?" Although that question may seem demeaning or even arrogant, it turns out that the Coca-Cola company (which owns the Vitaminwater brand) is essentially asking that exact question.

How so? In response to a recent lawsuit against Coca-Cola filed by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), Coke's attorneys replied in court briefings that, "...no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage."

Except, of course, millions of consumers were misled into believing precisely that.

Rethinking Iran-Contra

Carter’s potential second term presented unacceptable dangers to some powerful interests at home and overseas. The CIA Old Boys (whom legendary CIA officer Miles Copeland deemed “the CIA within the CIA”) thought they understood the true national interests even if the lazy-minded public and weak-kneed politicians didn’t.

Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and his Likud Party believed in a “Greater Israel” and were determined not to trade any more land conquered in the Six-Day War of 1967 for promises of peace with Palestinians and other Arabs. In 1980, Begin was still fuming over Carter’s Camp David pressure on him to surrender the Sinai in exchange for a peace deal with Egypt.

They believe that task should be left to the venal politicians chosen by corporate bosses and top-hat banksters. That's why Chavez has to go. He's given people hope for a better life.

No, I’m not talking about the Qur’an, not even the Bible, I’m talking about the Talmud. That’s right, Dr. Terry Jones of the Dove World Outrage Center agreed publicly this weekend to toss in a couple of copies of the Talmud into the fire when he, showing his Christian love, will also be burning copies of the Quran. Please join him, and I hope, Michael Collins Piper, on Sept. 11th for this occasion and be aware that this is a BYOT event. For Shas Party members – BYOT means “Bring you own Talmud” and please be ready to toss it into the fire.

Are US-Israel intelligence agencies blocking Palestinian civil rights to weaken Hezbollah?

Part X of a series on securing Civil Rights for Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

The State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (NIR) is part of the U.S. Intelligence Community’s panoply of 16 agencies, which comprise the US Intelligence Community (IC). According to Congressional sources consulted below, NIR and Israel have been working longer hours than most members of Lebanon’s Parliament, carefully analyzing the language of the main draft proposals concerning elementary civil rights for Palestinian Refugees. The proposals are currently scheduled for an August 17, 2010 Parliamentary vote and the US-Israel plan is to allow nothing to be enacted into law that would actually benefit Lebanon’s Palestinian refugees.

One-State, Two-State and the American Task Force on Palestine

By Antoine Raffoul

Until recently, we had never heard of the American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP). After some research on the subject of the One-State vs the Two-State solution, we discovered a long Study published by the ATFP in 2009 entitled “What’s Wrong With The One-State Agenda“. It made for interesting reading and shed some light on the people behind the ATFP which claim “to promote an end to the conflict in the Middle East through a negotiated agreement that provides for two states – Israel and Palestine – living side by side in peace and security”.

ISRAEL’S PILLARS OF SAMSON: NOT QUITE ARMAGEDDON, BUT….

By Dr. Alan Sabrosky* for My Catbird Seat

As the US edges toward an unprovoked and utterly needless war with Iran, some remarks by an eminent and experienced observer of that part of the world caught my attention. First, he noted that Israel and the US realize that the next war will burn much of the Middle East and may well spell the end of Israel.

Second, he remarked that Every week Israel becomes weaker vis a vis the “resistance axis” and at what point does Israel decide to bring down the house and start again if it can survive with enough military power (backed by the US) to remake the region.

Mr. President, whether it wouldn’t be wise for you to give the American people, the United Nations, and the rest of the world a reasoned statement of the need for such an oceanic display of America’s naval, air, soldierly, and electronic might at a time when the United States seems bent on continuing to act as a global policeman in the four corners of the world.

A Guide to the G20 Protests for the Not-Yet-Radical

And I want to reiterate my sincere belief that the rights which we do have came about from long social struggles, of which gathering and protesting was an important part. The right to assemble isn’t about the right to get together for picnics or parties (though I like those as much as the next person), it’s about the right to assemble exactly when the government or another authority doesn’t want you to. And a moment when the police say “don’t come downtown, you might get caught in a mass arrest.” Is the exact moment when I think it’s important to assert my right to assemble. The crucial moments to assert your rights are always when they are threatened.

To conclude this section on repression, let me just ask one more time for you to review the accounts of events I’ve written about - combined with the other stories that you have heard or heard about - and judge them against the normal narrative of how this stuff happens: that a protest turned violent and the police responded in order to stop the violence. Then try to think about it in the light of the government and the police trying to discourage protest and demobilize people. Which one makes more sense?

Murder of Aid Workers in Afghanistan A Convenient War Psyops?
The tragic murder of 10 medical workers in northern Afghanistan could very well have been done by thugs and thieves or is there a military/CIA/Mossad psyops at work?
But on the other hand, when this incident is looked at through the concept of 'war by deception,' it's not too far-fetched to speculate that the intelligence agencies and their paid proxies working in the area may have actually committed the war crime. Killing western civilians doing humanitarian work is a deceitful way to stir public opinion for a war going downhill fast in the minds of many Americans.

Keeping Jews from using the camera without paying him royalties for his invention was the hard part.

FLASHBACK - BP caps DIFFERENT WELL MORE LIES ?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bears further checking, but the gist of the story is that BP drilled two wells (confirmed) abandoned the first one when it got into trouble (also confirmed), then drilled the second well which exploded. The theory put forward on this video is that the media stunt of capping the well was done to the remains of the first well, not the major leak at the Deepwater Horizon site.

WELL #A
Latitude 28.738132500000003
Longitude -88.36592777777777

WELL #B
Latitude 28.73778527777778
Longitude -88.36682805555554

check this out
Use the above decimal mapping coordinates on the live marine traffic map linked below (as you move the map around, the coordinates change). You will see where the ROVS are in relationship to the TWO well blowouts:

http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/default.aspx?level0=100

It appears the SKANDI NEPTUNE, which has been showing images of the "new cap for the BOP" is at the location of the FIRST well that blew, and NOT the second well (that destroyed the rig).

Note: The marinetraffic website does not have a mechanism for saving the map coordinates in the URL, so after you reach the page, use the pull down menu at left labeled "Go to Vessel" and select SKANDI NEPTUME which will center the ROV ship as well as show a recent track.

UPDATE

These are screen captures from July 22nd.

In this first screencap, the location of the BOA DEEP C is noted. This is the location of the Deepwater Horizon drilling site; the well seen gushing oil and gas into the Gulf following the explosion of the drilling rig last April.

In this second screencap, the location of the SKANDI NEPTUNE is indicated. This is the ROV control ship currently displaying what we are told is the successfully capped wellhead.

The problem is that as of July 22nd when these screencaps were taken, the SKANDI NEPTUNE and its ROV appear to be some distance from the Deepwater Horizon, at the location of the first attempted well.

To judge from most media coverage, the beaches are open, the fishing restrictions being lifted and the Gulf resorts open for business in a healthy, safe environment. We, along with Pierre LeBlanc, spent the last few weeks along the Gulf coast from Louisiana to Florida, and the reality is distinctly different. The coastal communities of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida have been inundated by the oil and toxic dispersant Corexit 9500, and the entire region is contaminated. The once pristine white beaches that have been subject to intense cleaning operations now contain the oil/dispersant contamination to an unknown depth.

Report finds drug industry funded studies almost always yield good results

A recent study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine has revealed that industry-funded clinical trials -- that is, drug trials funded by pharmaceutical companies -- almost always show positive results for the drugs they test. In contrast, only about half of government-funded studies show the same drugs to be safe and effective.

The results of the study may not come as much of a surprise to many who already recognize the corruption inherent in drug company-funded clinical trials. But they do broadcast this reality to a much larger audience than ever before.

Research fraud: Dr. Reuben now claims he had "bipolar disorder" which caused him to fake clinical trials

Defense attorneys for the perpetrator of one of the largest research frauds in history have claimed that their client, Scott S. Reuben, MD, suffered from "serious, but undiagnosed" bipolar disorder that led him to fabricate data and otherwise falsify his research.

Reuben graduated from medical school in 1985, and soon became a widely published and cited pain researcher. By 2009, he had published at least 72 research studies, and his work had led to a major change in the way pain is treated. But a routine audit in 2008 at Baystate Medical Center, where Reuben had worked since 1991, uncovered discrepancies in Reuben's research. This led to allegations that Reuben had not actually conducted many (or even any) of the studies that his supposedly groundbreaking findings had been based on.

Virus Attacks Siemens Plant-Control Systems

Computer hackers have designed a virus that targets industrial control systems built by German engineering giant Siemens AG, activating a kind of malicious software that analysts say represents a growing corporate-espionage threat.

The virus, dubbed Stuxnet, is spread by devices plugged into USB computer ports. It is programmed to try to steal data from computer systems that are used to monitor large automated plants built for anything from manufacturing to power generation to water treatment. Siemens is one of the world's largest makers of such industrial automated systems, though it doesn't break out its annual revenue from such sales.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS!

As this article confirms, plant control systems are not tied into the public internet. The virus has to be inserted using a USB device.

So why would hackers, who are into money, porn, identity theft, and cramming Viagra ads into your mailbox going to waste their time on a virus for a refrigerator factory assembly line control system?

Folks, this is a hoax. The government needs to find a way to control the internet because they are in a panic that the world sees them for what they really are. So they are going to have "Terrorists" at you (as if terrorists could destroy this nation any more badly that Federal fiscal policy already has) to trick you into accepting more locks and controls on your computer and internet. For your own good, of course.

But stop and think about it. There is no financial reason for hackers to waste their time with factory computers (which are actually rather boring). Real enemies of the United States are not going to waste their time on refrigerator factory assembly line control systems. They would go after military systems which are already secure. Or they would go after the NCA comm systems (again, already secure) or even the IRS computers.

This claim that factory computers are under threat is just more bovine excrement to limit freedom of speech and justify handing several million dollars to some congresscritters donor who is in computer security.

Who repealed the Glass-Steagall Act?

The Glass Steagall Act President Roosevelt signed into law was repealed. See who swept aside the banking firewall protections on the 12th of November 1999.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, is an act of the 106th United States Congress (1999-2001), signed into law by President Clinton which repealed part of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, opening up the market among banking companies, securities companies and insurance companies. The Glass-Steagall Act prohibited any one institution from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and/or an insurance company.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act allowed commercial banks, investment banks, securities firms and insurance companies to consolidate.

The real question regarding Glass-Steagall Act is: "Would our current financial collapse and global economic depression occurred, had this Banking Safeguard not been repealed." The answer to this is, not likely, although vast areas of American economic growth was undermined with the establishment of free trade agreements, tax incentive outsourcing tax laws, Federal Reserve Bank bubble pumping action of lower interest rates, and an era of look the other way deregulation. -- kdtroxel

THE FRAME-UP OF EDGAR STEELE

The conspiracy to arrange the deal allegedly took place on June 9 and 10, 2010, yet the federal informant fitted a live 12-inch pipe bomb to the first car as early as May 30. Hence, the prosecution's main witness would need to be capable of time travel, or, at the very least, to have "psychic" powers that enabled him to see into the future.

'There wasn't much blood about': Detective who found weapons expert David Kelly's body raises questions over his death

The police officer who discovered the body of Dr David Kelly has spoken out for the first time – and revealed that there was ‘not much’ blood on or near the Government scientist.

Detective Constable Graham Coe was the first official on the scene after the body of the weapons expert was discovered in woods near his Oxfordshire home seven years ago. He guarded the body alone for 25 minutes.

The retired detective’s comments raise serious questions about whether Lord Hutton adequately investigated the circumstances of the scientist’s death.

And they will inevitably focus attention on Hutton’s finding that Dr Kelly died from blood loss after slitting his left wrist with a blunt pruning knife.

Bernie Madoff & The Watchdog That Didn't Bark or Bite

Perhaps the most incredible aspect of the greatest Wall Street swindle ever was that despite repeated warnings from many different sources the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over a period of 16 years refused to conduct a diligent probe into the operations of fraudster securities broker Bernard Madoff. The "watchdog" Federal agency, which didn't bark or bite, not only disregarded the repeated warnings of knowledgeable whistle-blower Harry Markopolos, a fund manager, as well as the two examiners in its own Boston office who said that Markopolos likely had it right; the SEC also disregarded reports in Barron's and other financial publications that questioned Madoff's legitimacy; and, perhaps most damning of all, the SEC disregarded letters from an obvious insider who revealed that Madoff was keeping two sets of books and told the SEC to find the evidence on a computer Madoff always carried on his person.

Iran, Israel and the Holocaust–An Analysis

Despite the fact that modern Zionism predates the Holocaust by half a century, that disaster has been consistently used by the Zionists to justify the need for the Israeli state. In this storyline, the Palestinians who resist Israeli aggression are simply reduced to latter day Nazis.

Video - Max Keiser: Zombie banks and a maritime hero

Yet another amazing episode from Max Keiser TV.

In this show, Max and Stacey talk about the zombi-fication of the world financial system.

Then at 14:15 Max interviews Captain Paul Watson of SeaSheperd.org

As Max (and Brasscheck TV) often recommend, the BEST way to fight back against corporate evil doers is economic.

On the most basic level, don't buy their shit.

At Captain Watson's level, make their depredations uneconomical.

Cheated and Betrayed

Gerald Celente – president of the Trends Research Institute and editor of Trends Research Journal – and LRC podcast guest – is interviewed on Russian TV, which tends to be freer than US TV. He discusses the economic collapse and social unrest ahead, and why we can not trust the ruling class or their universities. Americans are rightly angry at the oligarchs of Wall Street and the big banks. They feel cheated, and they have been cheated. They feel betrayed, and they have been betrayed.

Wiesenthal Center opposes NYC mosque, supports museum on Palestinian graveyard

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a human rights organization devoted to fighting anti-Semitism, has been accused of hypocrisy for joining the ADL in opposing the Ground Zero mosque, while funding the construction of a "Museum of Tolerance" on top of Palestinian grave sites.

Rabbi Meyer May, the center's executive director, told Crain's New York that building a mosque near the site of the 9/11 attacks was "insensitive" to the people still dealing with the wounds of that tragedy.

“Religious freedom does not mean being insensitive...or an idiot,” May said. “Religion is supposed to be beautiful ... Why create pain in the name of religion?”

Newsweek’s Zacharia Returns ADL Award, Rendering Foxman ‘Speechless’

Tikun Olam- Richardsilverstein.com

In the realm of the impossible is the following statement from Abe Foxman upon learning that Fareed Zacharia, noted Newsweek columnist and Muslim-American, would be returning an ADL award and honorarium in protest of the ADL’s position opposing the Cordoba House Muslim Cultural Center near Ground Zero:

“I am not only saddened but stunned and somewhat speechless by your decision to return the ADL Hubert H. Humphrey First Amendment Freedoms Prize, you accepted in 2005,” ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said in a letter to Zakaria. “As someone I greatly respect for engaging in discussion and dialogue with an open mind I would have expected you to reach out to me before coming to judgment.”

Neocons Hope Israel Will Start a Fire the U.S. Will Be Forced to Put Out

Neocons are supporting an Israeli attack on Iran in the hope that the U.S. would be drawn into the ensuing conflict. “If the Israelis bomb now, American public opinion will probably be with them,” writes neocon Reuel Marc Gerecht.

“Perhaps decisively so.” Reuel Marc Gerecht’s screed justifying an Israeli bombing attack on Iran coincides with the opening of the new Israel lobby campaign marked by the introduction of House resolution 1553 expressing full support for such an Israeli attack.

What is important to understand about this campaign is that the aim of Gerecht and of the right-wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu is to support an attack by Israel so that the United States can be drawn into direct, full-scale war with Iran.

WIKILEAKS: AN INDO-ZIONIST CONSPIRACY?

The period of WikiLeaks revelations covers five years of George W. Bush from January 2004 till December 2008 and one year of Barack Obama from January to December 2009. Looking back in rear-view mirror, one sees that significant changes started to occur in American policy in Afghanistan after December 2009 and talk of reconciliation and negotiations with the Taliban gained currency. Pakistan also began to figure prominently and there was a noticeable change of attitude among US officials. Karzai too started leaning towards Pakistan. A sudden change of direction of wind was not to the liking of India, the Northern Alliance and the Jewish lobby in USA since it ran counter to their designs against Pakistan.

Historic 9/11 Truth Billboard Revealed in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

The 24’ (w) x 12’ (h) billboard was installed sometime Thurs. afternoon, Aug. 5, 2010 on South Higuera, just south of Elks Lane in San Luis Obispo (near the Sutcliffe Cemetery). [ MAP: http://tinyurl.com/24jcasv ].

The activists who brought this matter to the people of San Luis Obispo County and the thousands that will drive by the billboard over the next 8 weeks realize that the evidence we are attempting to share is difficult to digest. Many simply cannot bear to question the official version of what happened on 9/11 because the implications are so difficult to face.

NIST piles it higher and deeper: structural engineer Anders Björkman refutes Dr. Zdenek Bazant

Björkman became a formal critic of the “Progressive Collapse” or “Piledriver” theory promoted by Dr. Zdenek Bazant, a consultant for the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) in its work on 9-11. The Piledriver Theory basically says that prolonged heating weakened the support columns of a single floor which caused the upper section to crush what was below it in a chain-reaction all the way to the bottom.

"I explained on my website that you cannot destroy a building by dropping the top on the bottom; you have to destroy it from the bottom,” Björkman said. “Then a lot of people criticized that and said, ‘But Dr. Bazant says the opposite, and he has written all these papers,’ so of course I looked at these papers, and said, ‘This Bazant is nonsense.’ But others said, 'But he’s peer-reviewed. It has been published in a scientific journal—the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.’”

How Many Iraqis Did We "Liberate" From Life on Earth?

Is there a man or woman in America today who is willing to stand at noon in the public square and claim that demands to bomb, invade, and occupy other people's countries have anything to do with human liberation?

If such people can be found, let them answer a few simple questions about the US invasion and occupation of Iraq.

How many Iraqis did we "liberate" from the companionship of their loved ones?

How many Iraqis did we "liberate" from dwelling in the houses and towns and the country of their birth?

Freedom Rider: White Citizenship

Freedom Rider: White Citizenship
08/04/2010 — Margaret Kimberley
We want our country back” is not just an anti-Obama call to action. It is a call to revive an idea which ought to have been firmly discredited by now, that America should belong only to white people and that they alone should have a voice in how it is run. It would be a terrible mistake to see these citizenship proposals only as anti-Latino based bigotry. They are surely that but they are also a means of keeping the non-white population under control and depriving them of any rights which a white person need respect.

There is NO Down side for Israel for the coming Zionist instigated, USA Attack on Iran

Israel wanted Saddam gone and pulled their puppets strings in the WH and Congress to raze that nation to the ground, but by using American money and other people's lives and the horrible visions of the MOSSAD/CIA 9/11 false flag to scare the hell out of Americans into invading Iraq.

Since then, the USA has been bogged down, stuck in Iraq with no clear signs or intent to exit.
Israel's goal of removing Saddam was realized, along with the utter destruction of Iraq and the murder of millions of Iraqis.

Weekly Standard Falsely Claims Iran Is Starting Proxy War With Israel

It’s nothing unusual for the flagship neocon rag, the Weekly Standard, to try to start wars in the Middle East. But Gabriel Schoenfeld’s post today on the magazine’s blog was irresponsible even by the Standard’s… well, standards.

Schoenfeld, a fellow at the neocon Hudson Institute, fabricates the details of incidents at the southern and northern edges of Israel in order to connect the attacks to the Islamic Republic.

Who will take out the garbage if our courts of justice won’t punish war crimes?

By Stuart Littlewood

Millions would love to see the present crop of war criminals dangling from lamp-posts.

But somebody called “Ellie” writing on Medialens has put a damper on this happy prospect. She explained the difficulties in bringing the scum to book. One of the things the British government wants to do, she said, is “stop the possibility of private prosecutions for (international) crimes committed by foreign nationals, so that friendly war criminals can continue to sup tea in Buckingham Palace”.

Unfortunately crimes that can supposedly be tackled under universal jurisdiction are limited and don’t include waging a war of aggression (although they do include war crimes in general), “so we can’t get anywhere with this charge (e.g. against Bush) in a domestic court”.

JOHN PILGER : Tony Blair must be prosecuted

Tony Blair must be prosecuted, not indulged like his mentor Peter Mandelson. Both have produced self-serving memoirs for which they have been paid fortunes.

In his latest column for the New Statesman, John Pilger writes about the “paramount war crime” defined by the Nuremberg judges in 1946 and its relevance to the case of Tony Blair, whose shared responsibility for the Iraq invasion resulted in the deaths of more than a million people. New developments in international and domestic political attitudes towards war crimes mean that Blair is now ‘Britain’s Kissinger’.

Palestine – The Third Option

By Rehmat - Rehmat’s World

The other day, I came across two interesting articles. One written by an American Jew and the other by an Israeli-born Jew. Roger Tucker, an American and founder of One Democratic State, had featured this blog once and Israeli-born Brit Gilad Atzmon who has been quoted several times on this blog. Both writers dismiss the western ‘option’ of the two-state solution – in order to make the modern Jews-only (demographically) colonial experiment, everlasting. These two Jew writers are not blinded by their Jewishness, like columinist Charles Krauthammer of the Washington Post or Daniel Pipes, who claim that the world is against Israel and Jews to please Muslims.

Will there be another Massacre in the Mediterranean; does Israel dare?
They said it couldn’t be done, that Americans couldn’t raise money fast enough to buy a boat to join Freedom Flotilla 2 in the fall. But never underestimate American determination in the face of Israeli intransigence and brutality. The launch of the US Boat to Gaza began last night in New York, and Free Gaza was there to participate.
