Jewish Community of Venezuela Fears for Their Safety

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"FEEL SORRY FOR US! FEEL SORRY FOR US! FORGET ABOUT GAZA!!!!"

Okay. Here is the part FOX isn't telling you. All this "Anti-Semitism" in Venezuela was kicked off by the attack on the synagogue where a bunch of guys ran through and spray-painted the walls. This was headline news around the world (while the six totally destroyed Mosques in Gaza did not rate a mention on ABCNNBBCBS). Yesterday, the Venezuelan police arrested the vandals, who turned out to be other police officers AND THE SECURITY GUARD FOR THE SYNAGOGUE ITSELF!

President: Breaking Holocaust box means cutting Zionism vein

“After the WWII, the issue of Holocaust became an excuse for winners of the war, the US and Britain in particular, to spread their dominance and influence worldwide. The illegitimate Zionist regime is the child and one of the results of the Holocaust issue.”

President Ahmadinejad urged researchers and scholars to examine the issue of Holocaust and the network of Zionism very carefully and share their findings with other nations.

Another Scary Iran Story

But parts to make ballistic rockets? What parts? Guidance systems? Special rocket motors?

A search of the ship found 80 tons of CK22 steel, which can be used to make warheads or fuel pods for surface-to-surface missiles.

Duh.

CK 22 steel is a simple standardized product. The EU norm number for it is EN 10083, the U.S. equivalent is SAE 1020, 1023. Any decent steel mill produces these. Its application:

Plain carbon steel for mechanical engineering and automotive components.

Debate rages over attack on Jewish soldier at Ft. Benning

The military has charged just one person, a fellow trainee, and insists that he was not motivated by anti-Semitism. Handman’s supporters, on the other hand, believe multiple attackers were involved and feel the incident was connected to anti-Jewish slurs dished out to Handman by two company drill sergeants.

Peltier movement goes beyond one man’s case

Convicted in 1977 of murdering two FBI agents in a shootout on a South Dakota Indian reservation, Peltier found support that always seemed to stem as much from acknowledgement of the historical abuses of American Indians as it did from Peltier’s own issues with whether he got a fair trial.

UK terrorists plan new 9/11 attack on US?

American spy chiefs believe a British-born Pakistani extremist entering the United States under the Visa Waiver Program is likely to be the source of another 9/11-style attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amazing how they always know enough detail to shout out these booga booga warnings ("Remember, when you hear the big bang, think 'Pakistan!'") but never seem able to actually find these supposed terrorists before they terrorize!

Of course, the obvious answer is that this British-born Pakistani extremist WORKS for the American spy chiefs, to help scare you into war in Pakistan.

‘No Jewish mass grave’ in Poland

Richard Krege, 30, of Canberra, said data collected during a week at Treblinka. using ground penetrating radar, found no soil disturbance consistent with 870,000 Jews having been buried there.

‘Historians say that the bodies were exhumed and cremated towards the end of the Treblinka camp’s use in 1943. but we found no indication that any mass graves ever existed," he said.

Nazis developed Thalidomide and tested it on concentration camp prisoners, author claims

The claim could have implications for the compensation of surviving victims, including 457 in the UK, if the German government is held liable for their condition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ooooh let's wave NAZIS at everyone one more time (and make a few bucks in the process).

As this article openly admits, a German company named Grünenthal owns the patent on Thalidomide, but Grünenthal did not exist until after the war was over. Moreover, any and all patentable technologies were looted via operation paperclip, and handed to allied companies as war booty.

Blaming the Nazis means more lawsuits for "compensation" and "reparations."

But before you all start spending that money, kindly explain why no stories of a rash of malformed children have ever been told by the survivors of the slave labor camps? Or that the Nazis, even if they did invent Thalidomide, did so with intent to cause harm.

Or why present day Germans, who were mostly not even alive during the first half of the last Century, bear any responsibility.

Holocaust denier cleric refuses to recant views

THE British bishop who questions the Holocaust has defied the Pope's demand for him to recant his views.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should be obvious to any objective observer that this debate has totally abandoned any pretext of reality and has degenerated into a contest of who can bludgeon whom into believing as they are told to believe.

Notice that none of the defenders of the orthodoxy suggest the obvious step of an objective assessment of the available factual data; the chemical tests of the surviving buildings, DNA tests on the soap and lampshades, new ground penetrating radar scans not only of Treblinka but every other site claimed to hold mass graves, DNA tests on the remains of victims in the Ukraine mass graves to determine of they really are Jews or executed Russians.

It's always about clubbing those who question into submission.

Bishop defends right to question Holocaust

British Bishop Richard Williamson says his research compels him to avoid resorting to "emotions" on his questions regarding the Holocaust.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no such thing as knowledge which is above question or re-examination. We all have a right, and in the aftermath of the Iraq "nookular bombs" lies, a moral duty, to question everything we are told that serves a political agenda.

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Bruno to Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

We do not jail people who think Elvis is still alive. We do not wreck the careers of people who claim to have been taken for rides in UFOs. We respect the First Amendment rights of those who choose to believe in the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot.

Only in this one area of inquiry is the full weight of government and the courts brought to bear to ensure that no questions ever dare be asked.

Why are they so terrified of a question?

What are they so afraid of?

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.

Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This video was scheduled to air on The Discovery Channel, but members of Congress threatened tough new laws controlling the cable TV industry if it aired, and the video was pulled even though it was already listed in the TV Guide. All release copies were destroyed. The video you see here was an editor's copy of the rough cut.

The McMartin pre-school scandal made headlines for months and cost $15 million and wound up finding all parties innocent, but THIS scandal never saw the light of day because the corporate media refused to touch it.

FLASHBACK - British document: Israel initiated Entebbe hijack

In the document, written on 30 June 1976 when the crisis was still unresolved, DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy wrote that according to his source, "the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet.

"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans."

Avc? claimed that the names of the members of the illegal network were kept at centers of intelligence services in Washington and London, but he did not specify the names of the agencies. Avc? said these records held names of civilian and military members of Ergenekon.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Khazaria—The Myth of Anti-Semitism Exposed at Last!!

"This was written before the full extent of the holocaust was known, but that does not alter the fact that the large majority of surviving Jews in the world is of Eastern European - and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar - origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term "anti-Semitism" would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims.

Plague-Infested Mice Missing From New Jersey Research Lab

The frozen remains of two mice infected with the bubonic plague are missing from a New Jersey bioterror research facility, and the facility waited seven weeks to report the incident to federal and state authorities.

Officials with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, where the remains went missing, and FBI officials, said the missing mice pose no public health threat.

This is the same facility where three live plague-inflected mice went missing in September 2005. Officials concluded those mice died.

More Bailout Propaganda, This time from GRETCHEN MORGENSON

New York Times Online | Saturday Feb 7 2009 | GRETCHEN MORGENSON

JUST in case you missed it: The Congressional Oversight Panel monitoring the Treasury Department’s bailout of broken banks — the Troubled Asset Relief Program — reported last week that Henry M. Paulson Jr.’s team at Treasury paid significantly more for the assets it bought from banks than they were worth when the deal was announced in the fall.

[...] the report said. “This disparity translates into a $78 billion shortfall for the first $254 billion in TARP funds that were spent.”

More taxpayer money down the drain, alas. And all the more reason to focus closely on executive pay restrictions at any bank that receives TARP funding.

FLASHBACK - Ringworm and Radiation

To fool the parents of the victims, the children were taken away on "school trips" and their parents were later told the x-rays were a treatment for the scourge of scalpal ringworm. 6,000 of the children died shortly after their doses were given, while many of the rest developed cancers that killed thousands over time and are still killing them now. While living, the victims suffered from disorders such as epilepsy, amnesia, Alzheimer's disease, chronic headaches and psychosis.

That is the subject of the documentary in cold terms. It is another matter to see the victims on the screen.

Obama Calls Stimulus Necessary to Save Jobs

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Saturday championed his economic stimulus plan as ''absolutely necessary'' -- if imperfect -- while Republicans dug in against a bill they said hadn't even been written, let alone properly reviewed or sufficiently revised.

''This is still a very big spending bill,'' Kyl said during a rare Saturday session on the Hill. ''You can't fix it by simply shaving a little bit off.''

He also sought to bring Republicans into the mix, pledging to listen to them, praising the late-Friday negotiations.

GOP leaders, however, said the rhetoric didn't match what was written.

"A False Premise"

The closer you examine it, the clearer it is that neoconservatism, in large part, is simply about enabling the most irredentist elements in Israel and sustaining a permanent war against anyone or any country who disagrees with the Israeli right. That's the conclusion I've been forced to these last few years. And to insist that America adopt exactly the same constant-war-as-survival that Israelis have been slowly forced into. Cheney saw America as Netanyahu sees Israel: a country built for permanent war and the "tough, mean, dirty, nasty business" of waging it (with a few war crimes to keep the enemy on their toes).

The report by the National Academy of Sciences is to be released this month. People who have seen it say it is a sweeping critique of many forensic methods that the police and prosecutors rely on, including fingerprinting, firearms identification and analysis of bite marks, blood spatter, hair and handwriting.

Vacant homes in the fourth quarter increased by 6.7 percent from the same period a year ago, the U.S. Census Bureau said in a report today. The vacancy rate, the share of empty homes for sale, rose to 2.9 percent in the quarter, the most in data that goes back to 1956.

RPI drew criticism from a faculty leader and an alumnus when the institute surfaced on a long-secret list of foundation contributors that Clinton released in December.

PrezBO's press room "Kiss my toes" photo op

President Obama made a “surprise visit” to the White House Press Room on Thursday. Undoubtedly, this was not an impulse or an accident, but a calculated attempt to create a new kind of photo-op. The idea was almost certainly to make news about the newness of this President not hiding from public-minded questioning. The assumption must have been that the WH press corp would be so bowled over by Obama’s entrance that they’d fawn and gush over him and pump out puff pieces proclaiming his newness and openness.

Turns out, the reporters took advantage of the unheard-of chance by actually asking Obama a question!

FDIC Failed Bank List

This is a link to the FDIC that lists the publicly acknowledged failed banks. We're off to a good clip already in 2009 compared to 2008 which was itself a notable year for bank failures, also noted on this web page.

The unacknowledged failed banks are not listed on this FDIC web page. The unacknowledged failed banks are the ones on life support through Treasury Department give-away programs.

The unacknowledged list would likely include about 95% of U.S. banks, and surely every large bank in the U.S.

It is perhaps remarkable to note, that when bank finances fail, regardless the reason, and the banking executives are facing losing their jobs, they simply go to the government for more money with which to pay salaries and bonuses.

Timothy Geithner's well-greased path to confirmation as treasury secretary is a sign of the severity of the recession and congressional willingness to give President Barack Obama the benefit of the doubt and look the other way.

Geithner Pledges Prolonged Effort to Stabilize Banks

Timothy Geithner, President Barack Obama’s nominee for Treasury secretary, pledged an expanded and prolonged government role in everything from stabilizing banks to ensuring credit for small businesses [and Tiny Tim apparently intends to give your kids the allowance they've lost too!].

Geithner [...] told lawmakers yesterday “we’re at the beginning of this process of repairing the system, not close to the end.” He committed to “much more substantial action” on a “very dramatic scale.”

Treasury nominee offers no estimate of cost, signals more money needed

Greg Robb, Senior Reporter | MarketWatch | Jan. 21, 2009

In testimony Wednesday before the Senate Finance Committee, Geithner didn't say how much the new package would cost. He refused to give specifics [...]

Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve Board chairman, told the panel that the cost of fixing the banks would cost several trillion dollars.

More government assistance would be needed, Geithner added, because the crisis is far from over. More money also will have to be used to get credit markets back to normal.

The nominee also defended his actions related to the collapse of Lehman Brothers. [...]

Geithner calls Tax Forms TOO COMPLICATED, Immigration, CONFUSING AS HELL.

Geithner calls for tougher bailout terms

NEW YORK | CNNMoney.com | Wed- Jan 21, 2009 | Colin Barr, Fortune senior writer

Geithner, appearing at his confirmation hearing Wednesday, also apologized to the Senate Finance Committee for his past underpayment of taxes, but assured senators that the missteps were unintentional [, and that the $34,000 oversight resulted from overly complex tax forms which have apparently always baffled Tiny Tim. No mention was made of the short and cute housekeeper, and, illegal alien, Tiny Tim was playing house with for a while. But in the Halls of Congress it was generally conceded that for a Dartmouth graduate the immigration laws were probably overly complex too.]

Geithner Urges Quick Changes to Bailout Fund

"Many people believe the program has allowed too much upside for financial institutions, while doing too little for small business owners, families who are struggling to keep their jobs and make ends meet, and innocent homeowners," Mr Geithner said.

Mr. Geithner [...] faces questions over his recent payment of $34,000 in back taxes for Social Security and Medicare that he failed to pay as a senior official of the International Monetary Fund from 2001 to 2003, including a small payment in 2004 after he left.

Bernard Madoff, the Mafia, and Naked Short Selling

Bernard L. Madoff was once the chairman of the NASDAQ stock exchange. He was one of the most important market makers on Wall Street. And he managed what was, by some estimates, the largest hedge fund on the planet.

Yes, Bernard Madoff was an impressive man. That much was clear even before we learned that his $50 billion Ponzi scheme may have been orchestrated in cahoots with the most powerful, sophisticated, and indiscriminately murderous organized crime syndicate the world has ever known.

Are These Pro-Israel Mobbing Technologies RICO violations? Or Even Treason?

It could be argued, and substanitated with much evidence that, since 911, this war we have been fighting for Israel has destroyed America...it's economy, its military, its constitution, its people; and pursuing this agenda, using these techniques and technoliges...to aid a foreign power, is treason.

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Fathers", Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as "a consulting house to multinational corporations" in New York City, and his functions as a "research assistant" and "financial writer".

The odd part of Obama's story is that he doesn't mention the name of his employer. However, a New York Times story of 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation.10 Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960.11

Rewriting the First Draft of History

Seeing as how we currently find ourselves hurtling along this downhill run towards new history - the countdown to the day America has itself a president named Obama can be measured in hours instead of days or weeks now - it seems an appropriate moment to pause and reflect on a bit of older history we've already passed through. I'm not talking about any kind of ancient history, mind you. For the purposes of this reflection, we need only take a small leap backwards in time, just six short years ago.

We all passed through the little slice of history that began to take shape in the early months of 2003, and we all remember that time in our own way. Today, however, there is a great deal of effort being expended to make sure this bit of history is remembered differently than how it really happened. An even better result for those exerting this effort would be if this bit of history were not remembered at all. That may, in fact, be their ultimate goal.

Obama the Liar : the Bin Laden, Al-Qaeda threat

Obama: Al-Qaeda remains 'number one threat' to US
1 hr 16 mins ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) – President-elect Barack Obama said Wednesday that Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden remain the "number one threat" to US security, after a new voice recording emerged from the terror group's leader.

"Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda are our number one threat when it comes to American security," Obama told reporters, after the recording warned the president-elect of new fronts in bin Laden's self-styled holy war against Western interests.

"We're going to do everything in our power to make sure that they cannot create safe havens that can attack Americans. That's the bottom line," Obama added.

The 22-minute audio recording, which the US-based Site Intelligence Group said it believes is authentic, was the first commentary from the Al-Qaeda leader in eight months.

The recording, which the websites said was by Bin Laden, also condemned Arab governments for preventing their people from acting to "liberate Palestine".

Obama to Ignore CIA War Crimes

If President-elect Barack Obama is reassuring the intelligence community “that his complaints are with the Bush administration, not them,” as AP’s Pamela Hess reported January 10th, his campaign slogan “change we can believe in” is headed for an early grave.

Obama’s remarks are a literal signal to CIA officials and other unindicted war criminals that they will not be prosecuted no matter what vile and horrific tortures they inflicted. And that’s not change; that’s business as usual; that’s what the CIA has done for years and gotten away with every time. Obama’s words will embolden CIA goons to gin up the same Adolf Eichmann defense, “I was only following orders” he used when he murdered Hungary’s Jews.

The Target is Iran: Israel's Latest Gamble May Backfire

The aerial war against Gaza launched by Israel just after Christmas, and the ground offensive, with which it rang in the New Year, were shocking in their brutality, but should constitute no surprise, if viewed from the standpoint of long-term Israeli strategic aims. The Israelis have argued that the offensive was launched in response to eight years' of relentless attacks by Hamas rockets into Israel. But then, one asks: why now? Why should they wait eight years?

Did We Just Have Our i-911... And Is An i-Patriot Act On It's Way?

Former Counter Terrorism Czar Richard Clarke told a leading expert on internet free speech, Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig, that there was going to be an "i-9/11", in other words, an electronic terrorist act, and an "i-Patriot Act" to crack down on freedoms on the Internet under the guise of protecting against such threats:

There’s going to be an i-9/11 event. Which doesn’t necessarily mean an Al Qaeda attack, it means an event where the instability or the insecurity of the internet becomes manifest during a malicious event which then inspires the government into a response. You’ve got to remember that after 9/11 the government drew up the Patriot Act within 20 days and it was passed.

New York resident and lawyer Emanuel Zeltser woke up on a private plane headed for a KGB-monitored detention center in Belarus last March. His last memory before waking was drinking coffee at a London cafe. Since then, he's been held at three separate prison facilities in the former Soviet Union country. Zeltser, 55, has been deprived of his diabetes, heart and arthritis medications, physically tortured and mentally abused. Today, he is languishing in a KGB penal colony outside of the eastern Belarusian city of Mogilev.

Masters In Distortion Of The Truth

The media coverage of the war in Gaza by Western television companies is largely unfair and biased because of a refusal to show viewers the real images of the victims.

One of the reasons for this is Israel’s decision not to allow the Western media in to Gaza.

In addition to this outrageous censorship by a so-called democracy, we get the usual arguments that most of the images shown by the Arab media are too shocking to show the viewing public in the West.

Admittedly, the horrific clip sent to me of a child’s head lying detached, among debris in Gaza did make me gasp.

But this is war and this is real and if the Western media did show these sort of images maybe the general public would wake up to the full horrors of what happens when bombs are dropped on civilian populations.

Guess What? Lots Of Oil, Natural Gas In Gaza!

To find the real reasons behind conflicts and wars in this world, you need to follow some or all of four things: Money, blood, power or natural resources (usually oil or natural gas but it can be cobalt like in the Congo).

Oil is behind the conflicts in Darfur, Somalia and other similar places.

The war in Afghanistan was never about finding bin Laden. It was about uniting Afghanistan into a single government so a pipeline could be constructed to bring a million barrels a day from areas north of Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia to markets (http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig/sardi7.html).

We need to stop listening to what the "official" media tells us when it comes to conflicts and wars because the official media is corporate and government owned and/or controlled by government. Less than one percent of the "news" in the world today is reported and what is reported is usually heavily edited and slanted for propaganda purposes.
