BLACKMAIL Is Reason For NO Oversight By Congress: SIBEL EDMONDS

Ironically but understandably, the Harman case has become one of rare unequivocal bipartisanship, when no one from either side of the partisan aisle utters a word. How many House or Senate Republicans have you heard screaming, or even better, calling for an investigation? The right wing remains silent. Some may have their hand, directly or indirectly, in the same AIPAC cookie jar.

Go West Young Man

In the book for which Elie Wiesel is most famous, namely Night, which is recommended reading in public schools across this country, Wiesel paints an horrendous picture of life in Auschwitz from April 1944 to January 1945 when he was there. Although many hundreds of thousands of Jews were supposedly gassed there during this time, Wiesel makes no mention of gassings or gas chambers anywhere in his book, as Jürgen Graf and Robert Faurisson have pointed out to us. He does however claim to have seen flames from the chimneys and Dr. Mengele wearing a monocle. Both claims are clearly lies.

A Method To Their Madness: The Hegelian Dialectic And False Flag Operations

Even more simply put, it is the process of creating a problem (thesis) to which there will be a reaction and demands for a solution (antithesis) leading to a solution (synthesis). This has been used repeatedly by our Zionist masters to control the minds of the American people and lead them towards solutions that they would not, under other circumstances, accept.

The most common use of this process has been by Zionist Neo-Conservative warmongers in the "false flag" operations that have been carried out to a political end, usually war against another country, or the so-called Cold War, or as in the "war on terror," against "radical Islam."

FLASHBACK - Army: 3 vials of virus samples missing from Maryland facility

The three missing vials contained samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, a virus that sickens horses and can be spread to humans by mosquitos. In 97 percent of cases, humans with the virus suffer flu-like symptoms, but it can be deadly in about one out of 100 cases, according to Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman for the Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was, of course, about the same time the entire Venezuelan Polo Team's horses all died in Miami.

The Venezuelans were favored to win until their ponies all died.

Cheney's Law

For three decades Vice President Dick Cheney conducted a secretive, behind-closed-doors campaign to give the president virtually unlimited wartime power. Finally, in the aftermath of 9/11, the Justice Department and the White House made a number of controversial legal decisions. Orchestrated by Cheney and his lawyer David Addington, the department interpreted executive power in an expansive and extraordinary way, granting President George W. Bush the power to detain, interrogate, torture, wiretap and spy -- without congressional approval or judicial review

Paul Krugman - The Bankster's Nobel Prize-Winning Shill -"Falling Wage Syndrome"

The New York Times - Economic Propaganda from Paul Krugman --Whatever the specifics, however, falling wages are a symptom of a sick economy.

It’s true that many workers are still getting pay increases. But there are enough pay cuts out there that, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average cost of employing workers in the private sector rose only two-tenths of a percent in the first quarter of this year — the lowest increase on record. Since the job market is still getting worse, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if overall wages started falling later this year.

To break that vicious circle, we basically need more: more stimulus, more decisive action on the banks, [...] Credit where credit is due...

[Give more money to the banks!!!!!!!!!!]

55,000 already DEAD, hundreds of thousands hospitalized!!!

OMG!!! OMG!!! 55,000 dead? From what?

Swine flu?............... Nope.

Avian flu?................ Nope.

Bubonic Plague?.................. Nope.

The 55,000 dead was the deaths due to that killer drug, Vioxx, legally sanctioned by the FDA. And these deaths were from 1999-2003.

Nearly 14,000 deaths a year from a government approved drug , but you didn't see anywhere near the amount of hysteria from that death march. Hundreds of thousands more hospitalized due to reactions from the FDA's own Grim Reaper. Put into a hospital from nasty Vioxx effects like loss of stomach lining, heart attacks and spontaneous GI bleeding.

Hell, that's not medicine, that's a legalized form of Russian Roulette.

Can Swine Flu Be Blamed on Industrial Farming in Mexico?

"But what is clear thanks to the hard work of virologists is that this particular strain of flu got its genetic start on U.S. hog farms back in the 1990s. That's according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. How the virus jumped from pigs to humans may have nothing to do with factory farms, but confined animal feeding operations helped to breed the disease."

Dead In The Water - The Sinking of the USS Liberty

34 Americans MURDERED, over 170 wounded. Survivors who tried to escape the bullets, shells, rockets, torpedoes and even NAPALM were machined gunned while trying to escape in life rafts.

Who did this foul deed? IRAN? NO........... Syria? NO.........

It was our good "friend" and only "ally" in the ME, ISRAEL.

Watch it now before it gets censored AGAIN, from Youtube or Google..... someone's awful nervous about this truth getting out. Maybe they need to keep the American public in the dark and ignorant about that day which lives in infamy, June 8, 1967.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As AIPAC cranks up the wild party at having gotten their spies off of the hook, and proved once again they can buy any member of Congress (even the second richest one), it is worth remembering how Israel slaughtered 34 Americans in a failed attempt to trick the US into the war against Egypt, and still had the juice to order President Lyndon Johnson to cover up the attack with a story of an "Accident"

IRAQ is threatened by a new wave of sectarian violence as members of the “Sons of Iraq” – the Sunni Awakening militias that were paid by the US to fight Al-Qaeda – begin to rejoin the insurgency.

If the spike in violence continues, it could affect President Barack Obama’s pledge to withdraw all combat troops from Iraqi cities by the end of June. All US troops are due to leave the country by 2012.

Only one person died from the actual swine flu.

America's necessary dark night of the soul

The election of Obama did not signal any real national introspection, and his own reluctance to open up the Pandora's box of the past -- partly driven by the fact that many Democrats signed off on Bush's misdeeds -- has prevented any further national self-examination. Ever since 9/11 we have been living in a twilight country, one where it is not clear whether laws apply or not, a morally relativist place in which unembarrassed emotionalism has replaced adherence to ethical and legal principles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What needs to happen, and won't, is a prosecution of everyone on the Bush/Cheney White House, and every Democrat who signed on to, these pointless wars and the institutionalization of torture as a device for getting confessions to back specific political agendas.

Only then can this country go back to being a country governed by the rules of law, and not the rules of men. And until then, we can no longer talk about being the "land of the free and the home of the brave"; we can no longer talk about how human dignity, human rights, and due process are the bedrock of the moral foundations of this country.

Unless this happens, we will have permanently morphed into something quite different as a country; and that is a pretty terrifying outcome to contemplate.

Look further back into the month and you will see enough clues to figure out the nature of what we may safely call a World Government. Pay attention to details in the United States, the United Kingdom and elsewhere, and you may distinguish manufactured social and political conflicts. Consider it all within the context of Mother Nature's mysteries.

Swine Flu Virus: CDC Recommendations Questioned

And then there were the deaths not from the flu or drug resistant strains, but from the side effects of Tamiflu. According to a report in Australia's respected Sydney Morning Herald on March 1, 2007, there were 18 juvenile fatalities linked to side effects of Tamiflu in 17 months. And though the U.S. media largely failed to report it, Japan banned Tamiflu for teenagers that same month. According the the official Tamiflu website, "people with the flu, particularly children and adolescents, may be at an increased risk of self injury and confusion shortly after taking Tamiflu and should be closely monitored for signs of unusual behavior."

An Alternative Explanation for the "Health Emergency" in Mexico

At this moment, Mexico is in the midst of an existential crisis. The combined realities of its corrupt government, the routes of the drug trade, and the neighboring drug market have combined to give rise to a system of drug cartels that rival the Mexican Government in economic power as well as raw firepower. Calderón is losing grip on the country his illegal election stole from Lopez Obrador . This darling of the corrupt Mexican ruling class has little means left with which to hold his grip upon power. Whether or not it will work, he seems to have made the decision to exaggerate a health crisis as a means to consolidate absolute power and to confer upon himself the powers necessary to stamp out those parts of the drug oligarchy not under his personal control.

The Importance of Battlefield Nuclear Weapons

The problem is that bankruptcy is the only weapon Chrysler and Treasury have in this fight, and it’s a strategic nuclear weapon. Bankruptcy is the only threat that can get the bondholders to agree to a swap; but because a bankruptcy carries some risk of destroying Chrysler (because control will lie in the hands of a bankruptcy judge - not Chrysler, Treasury, the UAW, or Fiat), and taking hundreds of thousands of jobs with it, everyone knows that Treasury would prefer not to use it. The bondholders are betting that they can use Treasury’s fear of a bankruptcy to extract better terms at the last minute.

Swine flu source spawns wild theories

Finding the source of a new virus is key for scientists because understanding how it jumped to humans can lead to better drugs and vaccines as well as help prevent future outbreaks.

But one link experts probably won't be exploring is an Internet report charging that Mexican drug cartels working with al Qaeda unleashed the swine flu.

"The claim of the conspiracy theorists is that this new combination could not have occurred naturally, but this is not true," the New Scientist's biology editor Michael Le Page wrote.

For others, like the Israeli and Sri Lankan governments, flu victims provide a welcome diversion from military victims. While the Sri Lanka's Tamil-bashing president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, seems hell-bent on turning his country into a rogue state, Israel's army has been quietly insisting its not dissimilar operations in Gaza in January were entirely in accordance with international law.

Human Rights Watch heaped scorn on Israel's claims this week while the International Crisis Group warned that a "boiling" Gaza could soon explode again. But with the world busy holding its nose and examining the contents of its handkerchief, who's listening?

Former Soldier Accused of Brutal Rape and Murder of 14-Year Old Iraqi Girl Starts Trial

It was called one of the most horrific crimes by U.S. troops against Iraqi civilians: In March 2006, a group of whiskey-fueled soldiers, their faces concealed and wearing black long underwear, descended upon a farmhouse some 20 miles south of Baghdad, gang-raped a teenage girl and shot her in the head, killing her along with her younger sister and their parents. The soldiers then tried to burn the bodies, setting fire to the house.

The grisly crime was initially blamed on insurgents -- "This is what happens when you harbor terrorists," a military translator told a relative after the bodies were found -- but three months later, the truth was revealed, when a fellow soldier from the unit told combat-stress counselors about what had happened.

The Jewish Media Insists Dr. Fredrick Toben Has Apologized for his Views on the holocaust. Per Usual They're Lying.

Dr. Fredrick Toben, perhaps the best known historical revisionist outside of prison walls today was convicted last week of "contempt of court," enabling the Australian JEWdicial system to make him another martyr for the cause, but not before the Jewish media attempt to destroy Dr. Toben's hard fought for credibility among the world's truth seekers. For those familiar with how the Jewish media works this comes as no surprise, they did the exact same thing with Bishop Williamson last month, insisting that he had apologized for his views on the holocaust, when in fact nothing of the kind ever happened, he apologized to the Catholic Church and the Pope for bringing them the negative attention of the Jewish media and nothing more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ask yourself, why so much effort and energy devoted to crushing down those who asks questions? Their fear is obvious.

It is nothing so much as the methods employed by the defenders of the official story that make it clear to any objective observer that something is indeed being hidden; some great secret protected from examination.

Beyond Waterboarding: What Interrogators Can Still Do

On his second day as President, Barack Obama ordered the agency to use the Army Field Manual as its interrogation playbook. The manual, originally written for Cold War prisoners but updated in 2006, states that "no [detainee], regardless of nationality or physical location, shall be subject to cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment as defined in U.S. law." It also categorically states that harsh interrogation techniques are essentially useless. "Beyond being impermissible, these unlawful and unauthorized forms of treatment are unproductive because they may yield unreliable results, damage subsequent collection efforts, and result in extremely negative consequences at national and international levels."

Swine flu? A panic stoked in order to posture and spend

We have gone demented. Two Britons are or were (not very) ill from flu. "This could really explode," intones a reporter for BBC News. "London warned: it's here," cries the Evening Standard. Fear is said to be spreading "like a Mexican wave". It "could affect" three-quarters of a million Britons. It "could cost" three trillion dollars. The "danger", according to the radio, is that workers who are not ill will be "worried" (perhaps by the reporter) and fail to turn up at power stations and hospitals.

Appropriately panicked, on Monday ministers plunged into their Cobra bunker beneath Whitehall to prepare for the worst. Had Tony Blair been about they would have worn germ warfare suits. British government is barking mad.

How they Debunk Antarctic for Al Hore

The British Antarctic Survey, working with NASA, last week confirmed ice around Antarctica has grown 100,000 sq km each decade for the past 30 years.
"""the word "NASA" should tell u this is Lie"""

“Our results show the complexity of climate change across the Earth. While there is increasing evidence that the loss of sea ice in the Arctic has occurred due to human activity, in the Antarctic human influence through the ozone hole has had the reverse effect and resulted in more ice. Although the ozone hole is in many ways holding back the effects of greenhouse gas increases on the Antarctic, this will not last, as we expect ozone levels to recover by the end of the 21st Century. By then there is likely to be around one third less Antarctic sea ice.”

Flying Pigs, Tamiflu and Factory Farms

If we are to believe what our trusted international media report, the world is on the brink of a global pandemic outbreak of a new deadly strain of flu, H1N1 as it has been labelled, or more popularly, Swine Flu. As the story goes, the outbreak of the deadly flu was first discovered in Mexico. According to press reports, after several days, headlines reported as many as perhaps 150 deaths in Mexico were believed caused by this virulent people-killing pig virus that has spread to humans and now is allegedly being further spread from human to human. Cases were being reported hourly from Canada to Spain and beyond. The only thing wrong with this story is that it is largely based on lies, hype and coverup of possible real causes of Mexican deaths.

Cheney has a problem. The ground of defense is not that ‘it got results.’ The issue is not whether torture is capable of producing results, or even the quality of those results. A million monkeys at a million waterboards will eventually produce a confessional masterpiece. Under existential threat, the argument about torture poses the question of whether to start, not when to finish. And the justification of the decision to start has been that this decision had been kept secret. For Cheney to defend his record, he must not only, like a Soloflex salesman, harp on ‘results’; he must defend the secrecy of the methods that obtained them. Secrecy was essential to results.

Other Pakistani officials and a U.S. counterterrorism official said they thought the al-Qaida chief is alive. U.S. officials said bin Laden is most likely hiding in the mountains along Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, in particular the lawless tribal regions.

"We continue to believe that bin Laden is alive," said the U.S. official, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to discuss the matter on the record.

After all, if it comes down to (the false choice of) saving the life of my child or torturing some stranger...

That's why half of Americans think it's acceptable to torture.

"Alaskan Victim of 1918 Flu Yields Sample of Killer Virus

Dr. Jeffery K. Taubenberger of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology said last year that the genetic pattern of the 1918 flu virus was unlike that of any other flu but was closely related to that of the so-called swine flu.

Pandemic flu preparedness and the China connection

We received a special visit from A. True Ott, PhD, ND on July 18. "I have a very important scoop for you," he said. Then he described in detail a compelling scenario that left us with a curious dilemma: Do we report our belief that what Dr. True Ott said was true—that something monstrous associated with the 2008 Olympics in Beijing is being planned—or wait until we are absolutely certain. But responsibility outweighs uncertainty because time, as you will see, is of the essence: If we wait until we are certain, it will be too late.
