New World Order Documentary on Russia Today with Luke Rudkowski 05-23-09

“The New World Order is a crime syndicate, established by the ruling elite, the richest people in the world, the one percent that controls over 80 percent of the world’s wealth. These are the people who want to set up a one-world government so they can have more power in less people’s hands,” author Luke Rudkowski says.

FBI Blows It: Supposed Terror Plot Against NY Synagogues Is Bogus

By the now, it's maddeningly familiar. A scary terrorist plot is announced. Then it's revealed that the suspects are a hapless bunch of ne'er-do-wells or run-of-the-mill thugs without the slightest connection to any terrorists at all, never mind to Al Qaeda. Finally, the last piece of the puzzle: the entire plot is revealed to have been cooked up by a scummy government agent-provocateur.

IF HEZBOLLAH OR HAMAS FIRE JUST ONE IRANIAN-BUILT ROCKET INTO ISRAEL…

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is just itching to find an excuse to attack Iran and what better way than to try what his predecessor, Ehud Olmert, tried in 2006 – provoke Hamas in the Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon by getting them to retaliate with minor incidents to Israeli border provocations and then use this as an excuse to launch massive attacks against both.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, what happens when collaborators working for Israel fire a soft-of-=looks-like-it-is-from-Iran rocket into an empty lot in Israel from inside Palestine?

Informer’s Role in Bombing Plot

The man, a Pakistani, occasionally approached the assistant imam of the mosque, proposing meetings, or overpaying for a sandwich he would buy at a mosque fund-raiser. In time, many of the mosque’s older members had made the man for a government informant, according to mosque leaders. They said that he seemed to focus most of his attention on younger black members and visitors.

“It’s easy to influence someone with the dollar,” said Mr. Muhammed, a longtime member of the mosque. “Especially these guys coming out of prison.”

Exactly As We Predicted; Deadly NY Terror Cell Are Semi-Retarded Potheads

According to an Associated Press report, the four men charged with planning to blow up synagogues and military planes, “Were amateurs every step of the way. They had trouble finding guns and bought cameras at Wal-Mart to photograph their targets. One was a convicted purse snatcher, another smoked marijuana the day the plot was to be carried out.”

The report continues,”Relatives said the defendants were down-on-their-luck men who worked at places like Wal-Mart, a landscaping company and a warehouse when they weren’t behind bars. Payen’s lawyer said he was “intellectually challenged” and on medication for schizophrenia. Marilyn Reader said he has “a very low borderline” IQ.”

Synagogue Bomb Plot - Latest Zionist Publicity Coup

Dim-witted news anchors across the television and radio air waves and satellite rays have confidently repeated the account of the NY synagogue bomb plot exactly as told to them by "the police and the FBI." Nary a dollop of skepticism do the media offer to salt this goose, in spite of the fact that it is has been conclusively documented that the Federal government from Bush and Cheney to Condi and Colin lied to us big time concerning Saddam Hussein's supposed weapons of mass distraction.

Torture and 9/11

This, I submit is what officials in the Obama Administration fear the most. An investigation of torture would inevitably lead to questions about what 9/11 was really about. We know with certainty that the official version of events is a pack of lies; what if America had to confront the fact that 9/11 really was an inside job? (The recent finding of nano-thermite in WTC dust is just one more compelling argument.) It’s even possible that Cheney has threatened to spill the beans if anyone comes after him for torture for which he has openly and brazenly taken credit. Would a torturer refuse to stoop to blackmail? If that seems farfetched wouldn’t torture itself have seemed so a relatively short time ago? Cheney et al have ‘enhanced interrogated’ at least a hundred people to death.

Islamabad says nuclear reports are ‘malicious’

Meanwhile, Pakistan and India have started sharing intelligence as part of an unprecedented cooperation effort between the longtime nuclear-armed foes overseen by the United States, US media reported yesterday.

Pornographic videos flood YouTube

Video-sharing website YouTube has removed hundreds of pornographic videos which were uploaded in what is believed to be a planned attack.

The material was uploaded under names of famous teenage celebrities such as Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers.

Many started with footage of children's videos before groups of adults performing graphic sex acts appeared on screen.

YouTube owner Google said it was aware and addressing the problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

History repeats.

Years ago, before browsers when the internet was still mostly usenet, there was a sudden flood of really gross and poor quality porn (just because it is an adult movie is no excuse for crappy film making) poured into wholly inappropriate newsgroups on usenet. There are specific areas of usenet for adult material but these pictures were being posted in placing like cooking groups, and the political groups.

The regular usenet readers asked the posters to confine their adult materials to the appropriate groups, and the porn posters came back with this lame claim that the first amendment gave them the right to post their porn in every single usenet news group.

I began to smell a huge rate here, and already having learned what the US government was like I started digging and sure enough the flood of porn was coming through various US Government and military sites. And sure enough, one month after the flood of porn showed up on usenet, Senator Exon introduced his amendment to the telecommunications act calling for government control and censorship of the internet, and making any obscenity on the internet a felony. Senator Exon took to the floor and showed his "Blue" book, a blue binder filled with the very images that had flooded usenet for the preceding weeks. And no sooner had the bill passed than the flood of porn ended as if a switch had been thrown.

So, if someone is flooding YouTube with porn, then it is an attempt to revive a call for government control of internet content. So, you need to ask, Que Bono. Who wants the internet brought under censorship>

FBI Agent on Synagogue Case Has Questionable Record

Special Agent Robert Fuller, whose name appears at the top of the federal criminal complaint in the case, had a hand in the FBI's failure to nab two of the 9/11 hijackers, had one of his informants set himself on fire in front of the White House, and was involved in misidentifying a Canadian man as a terrorist leading to his secret arrest and torture -- a case that is now the subject of a major lawsuit.

ISLAMOPHOBIA COMES TO THE BIG SCREEN

A new documentary from a shadowy non-profit, the Clarion Fund, has ties to groups widely accused of Islamophobia.

The Third Jihad purports to educate US citizens about the threat of a “cultural Jihad” by the country’s own Muslim-American population. The film goes to great lengths to define itself as an expose of radical Muslim elements, not the faith at large.

But a group called the International Free Press Society (IFPS), which attended the Washington premiere of the film and documented the screening on behalf of the production company on a social media website, has some dubious affiliations.

Even though Cheney’s predecessor, former Vice President Al Gore, waited a few years before hitting the Bush Administration, the media made sure to remind viewers that such instances were rare, and many hinted that he was wrong to do so, despite waiting. Meanwhile, Cheney, whose popularity ranks lower than most politicians past and present and who may conceivably face future charges for his role in countless alleged illegal acts and decisions, continues to garner tons of attention from the press.

Uncle Sam's Human Lab Rats

That government scientists conducted human experiments at Edgewood is not in question. "The program involved testing of nerve agents, nerve agent antidotes, psychochemicals, and irritants," according to a 1994 General Accounting Office (now the Government Accountability Office) report (PDF). At least 7,800 US servicemen served "as laboratory rats or guinea pigs" at Edgewood, alleges Erspamer's complaint, filed in January in a federal district court in California. The Department of Veterans Affairs has reported that military scientists tested hundreds of chemical and biological substances on them, including VX, tabun, soman, sarin, cyanide, LSD, PCP, and World War I-era blister agents like phosgene and mustard. The full scope of the tests, however, may never be known.

In other words, these “terror cells” have been created, engineered and funded by the FBI.

FLASHBACK - The FBI Allowed the 1993 WTC Bombing to Happen

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad Salem, should be used, the informer said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Relinked at reader request.

By now the rather convenient timing of last night's arrests in New York to support Dick Cheney's turd-polish which has just ended must be obvious.

And like so many other "terrorist" arrests, this one involves an FBI informant who found a group of angry men, got them to the point of making some big talk, and set them up for an arrest. Based on the prior record, there will be headlines for a few days, then the case will collapse for lack of real evidence.

But America needed "to remember why they need us!" to quote from "V for Vendetta" and last night's arrest set the stage for Dick Cheney to come onto TV today to try to save his sorry ass in a modern day repeat of the "Checkers" speech that saved Nixon's career. Please keep in mind what happened when the earlier Dick got his second chance from a too forgiving American public.

Dick is trying to play the "24" scenario with himself as Agent Jack Bauer (a TV series whose sole purpose seems to have been to convince America that torture is cool). But the reality Dick and ABCNNBBCBS is not mentioning is that torture wasn't used to find any ticking bombs, but to extract useful confessions, such as that of Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi; a knowingly false confession which was used to sell the Iraq war to the American people. Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi has now been conveniently suicided as an embarrassment to the state.

Frankly, you should be insulted that Dick Cheney think you are such a dumb rube that he can come on TV and talk you out of your righteous anger.

And please keep this in mind. Yesterday the New York Times reported that President Obama is considering a plan for "preventive detentions" for suspected terrorists HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, specifically for people for whom no evidence of wrongdoing actually exists, but who the government wants to lock up anyway. Does anyone here imagine that the same methods employed against the current terror suspects will not be used against the new ones, if the government feels they can get away with it? and look at the MIAC report and the DHS lexicon. The government has already decided that anyone who supports the Constitution is a potential terror suspect. Obama's plan can lock you up, and then you can figure out what happens next.

... if you let it continue.

New York “Terror Plot” Another Government Provocateured Set-Up

The corporate media and the authorities are having a field day lavishing saturation coverage on the so-called New York “terror plot” in which four men, three of them U.S. citizens, supposedly planned to blow up a Jewish temple and shoot down military planes, feverishly citing it as another example of why we should accept police state measures in major cities and the targeting of American citizens as “domestic terrorists”.

The only problem with this premise, mirroring just about every other major terror plot and terror bust that we have ever studied, is that the men were radicalized and provocateured by an FBI informant, who provided the group with the fake weapons that led to their arrest.

Apologies for Evil

Jeffrey Goldberg has written one of the most obvious pieces of pure propaganda ever published in the New York Times. Purporting to report on the whys and wherefores of the state of Netanyahu's thinking, it is actually a devious advertisement directed at the American people to make Bibi's racist eliminationist violent supremacism seem as sympathetic as possible. A perfect analogy would be a 1938 op-ed explaining to the British people the reason for Hitler's thoughts. Goldberg can get away with this only because of the fact that 'dual loyalty' is still partly invisible to the American people - or so the proprietors of the New York Times would like to think - and thus he can still, barely, pass as an American writing for Americans.

Valerie Plame: Obama is on Bush’s side

So, President Barack Obama is on the side of the patriotic folks who outed a CIA agent working to keep weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of an intemperate leader of a Middle East nation hostile to the United States.

Well, not likely. But the Obama dministration apparently understood the “exemption” of the offices of the president and vice president from a federal law on privacy. And apparently it also understood that even wityh jurisdiction, Plame would have to prove that she was harmed directly by the actions of those named in the suit.

Go figure. Cheney’s scheme worked. At least it worked long enough for him to get the war he wanted and how he wanted it. If he had to ruin the career of a CIA agent in the process, well, that’s just collateral damage.

Well, yes, that’s hardly surprising. The PATRIOT Act and other legislation .pdf passed by Congress gives the government the legal "right" to spy on American citizens and, in the case of Jose Padilla, lock them up without a trial and throw away the key. But, as Hersh reveals, it gets worse. Much worse

Israel gives Obama until end of year on Iran

In practice, this means that Netanyahu agreed to give Obama until the end of the year. Then, if Iran's nuclear program is still proceeding, Israel will consider "other options."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I doubt that this is what they really talked about in their meeting. Neither Netanyahu nor Obama talked about Iran's nuclear weapons because both of them know full well that Iran is not building nuclear weapons nor has the IAEA found any evidence Iran is building nuclear weapons.

If the nuclear power station were the real concern, the US would abide by article 4 of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which OBLIGATES the United States to assist any developing country with the construction of peaceful nuclear power plants. I cannot think of a better way for the US to see what Iran is really doing with that power station than actually being there helping to pour the foundations and weld the pipes.

So, what Netanyahu has really told Obama is that Obama has until the end of the year to convince the US population to support a war in Iran, or Israel will just start one for us.

I told you Obama looked like a whipped puppy coming out of that meeting.

We wouldn't want to inflame anti-American sentiment

If we're actually worried about inflaming anti-American sentiment and endangering our troops, we might want to re-consider whether we should keep doing the things that actually spawn "anti-American sentiment" and put American soldiers in danger. We might, for instance, want to stop invading, bombing and occupying Muslim countries and imprisoning their citizens with no charges by the thousands. But exploiting concerns over "anti-American sentiment" to vest our own government leaders with the power to cover-up evidence of wrongdoing is as incoherent as it is dangerous. Who actually thinks that the solution to anti-American sentiment is to hide evidence of our wrongdoing rather than ceasing the conduct that causes that sentiment in the first place?

Russian Report on 1980 'October Surprise' Case

That case centered on allegations that, during the summer and fall of 1980, the Reagan-Bush campaign conducted secret negotiations with Iran's Islamic fundamentalist government, which was holding 52 Americans hostage. The lingering crisis sapped President Jimmy Carter's political strength and cleared the way for Ronald Reagan's historic victory. The hostages were freed immediately after Reagan became President.

The Russian assistance was requested on Oct. 21, 1992, by the House task force chairman, Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind. The Russian report asserted that the allegations of secret Republican negotiations with Iran were true. But the Russian report was never released by the task force, whose public findings reached the opposite conclusion.

The Case of the Missing H-Bomb: The Pentagon Has Lost the Mother of All Weapons

Things go missing. It's to be expected. Even at the Pentagon. Last October, the Pentagon's inspector general reported that the military's accountants had misplaced a destroyer, several tanks and armored personnel carriers, hundreds of machine guns, rounds of ammo, grenade launchers and some surface-to-air missiles. In all, nearly $8 billion in weapons were AWOL.

Those anomalies are bad enough. But what's truly chilling is the fact that the Pentagon has lost track of the mother of all weapons, a hydrogen bomb. The thermonuclear weapon, designed to incinerate Moscow, has been sitting somewhere off the coast of Savannah, Georgia for the past 40 years. The Air Force has gone to greater lengths to conceal the mishap than to locate the bomb and secure it.

Obama Can’t Turn the Page on Bush

That’s why the president’s flip-flop on the release of detainee abuse photos — whatever his motivation — is a fool’s errand. The pictures will eventually emerge anyway, either because of leaks (if they haven’t started already) or because the federal appeals court decision upholding their release remains in force. And here’s a bet: These images will not prove the most shocking evidence of Bush administration sins still to come.

If We're Going to Reveal More Memos. . . .

If We're Going to Reveal More Memos. . . .

Fri May 15, 2009 at 15:06:22 PM EDT

Former VP Dick Cheney has requested the release of additional memos showing that torture and abuse saved American lives by preventing terrorist attacks. If the Obama Administration decides to release these memos, then I suggest they also release statistics from Iraq showing the number of foreign fighters that were recruited because of our policy of torture and abuse. It was tracked. I know because I saw the slides and because I heard captured foreign fighters state this day in and day out. The government can also release the statistics that show that 90% of suicide bombers in Iraq were these same foreign fighters. These foreign fighters killed hundreds, if not thousands, of American soldiers.

After these revelations, Americans can judge whether or not a policy of torture and abuse kept us safe.

Gitmo general told Iraq WMD search team to torture

When interviewed by the committee, Miller couldn’t remember much about that visit. But in retrospect, it is pretty clear why the ISG wasn’t “getting much” out of their detainees on WMDs in Iraq: There weren’t any. Though with enough abuse, the detainees probably would have claimed otherwise.

Dick Cheney, Torture, Iraq, and Valerie Plame

I've been reluctant to embrace suggestions that torture, Iraq, and Valerie Plame were all going to coalesce into one linked story. After all, it would be too easy for me, of all people, to argue these stories were linked. But I increasingly suspect they are.

First, let me pull together some data points

(1)Nancy Pelosi and Bob Graham are linking the non-briefings on torture with the Iraq NIE

(2)The proposal to waterboard Muhammed Khudayr al-Dulaymi

(3)Dougie Feith has said his DOD intell office helped formulate policy on detainees

(4)Dick Cheney outed Valerie Plame because of Joe--but also because of pushback at CIA

(5)Wilson's recent comments tying everything together

It is believed that the pictures being held back by the Obama administration may include some of these shots that most of the US press ignored, although RAW STORY ran them in 2006.

Bedbug infestations, Malaria and Banned pesticides that work

Boom in tiny bedbugs is causing big trouble

Since the EPA restricted the use of several effective pesticides in the 1980s, bedbugs have built resistance to the chemicals that now are on the market, said Potter, the University of Kentucky entomologist. Public education is important, he said, but the industry also needs a good insecticide.

Anger at Obama Guantanamo ruling

Civil liberties groups have reacted angrily to US President Barack Obama's decision to revive military trials for some Guantanamo Bay detainees.

Mr Obama has previously denounced the Bush-era judicial system, but in a statement said new safeguards would ensure suspects got a fairer hearing.

New rules include rejecting statements obtained from harsh interrogations and limitations on using hearsay evidence.

There are still 240 detainees at the US base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

I am very angry. #$%^#%$ anger management, I am pissed off! And if you carry any of the blood of those who made this nation what it is today you have to be angry too. You should be angry. You must be angry. Because right now there is a battle about to start over whether this nation will continue to be ruled by those who lie, or whether the liars will be kicked out. Whether we will have honest government or not. Whether we will be slaves to liars, or free citizens with honorable and respectful and fair government.

Dear Corporate Media, Now That You're Connecting Torture to War, Can We Talk?

Now that you're beginning to talk about the fact that our country tortured people in order to elicit war rationales, can we talk for a minute? I'd like to point a few things out that you can verify without spending a dime on investigative reporting. First, we now know that we tortured in hopes of producing justifications for a war. Let's suppose that this was done in "good faith" and that the lies al Libi told to stop the pain were actually true. We know that the torturing preceded and exceeded the OLC memos, the OLC memos were themselves insane (I think that's the legal term for it, but you can ask your lawyers), and dozens of people were tortured until they were dead. Let's suppose none of that to be the case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

None of that would change the fundamental fact that we were not torturing for defense of this nation but for an offensive attack on another nation.

The Secret Service at Booker Elementary: The Dog That Did Not Bark

Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9-11" suggests Bush's inaction was due to his not being told to leave. But Michael Moore fails to follow that line of reasoning through to its logical conclusion; where were the people whose job it is to get the President to a place of safety in event of attack, the people who would have, SHOULD have, pulled Bush out of there, children and public appearances be damned!

The Secret Service did nothing. The dog did not bark.

If the events of 9-11 were truly a surprise to the United States Government then there is no way the Secret Service could have known there wasn't a hijacked or stolen plane heading towards Booker Elementary School that very second.

The Secret Service did nothing. The dog did not bark.

Webmaster's Commentary:

One of the Main Sources for the 9/11 Commission Report was Tortured Until He Agreed to Sign a Confession that He Was NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO READ

Four of them said they gave information only to stop the torture. Although details were redacted in all the detainees’ testimony, the tribunal permitted the inclusion of a letter from a detainee’s father in one case, citing what he claimed was American torture of his son.

This torture only stopped when Majid agreed to sign a statement that he wasn’t even allowed to read.

Indeed, as legal experts have pointed out, and 9/11 Commission Director Zelikow tacitly acknowledges, evidence based on torture is not reliable.

What Did Nancy Know?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Justin makes some very good points here, but folks, this whole issue of Nancy Pelosi is a limited hangout.

It doesn't matter when she knew, she should have known; all of Congress should have known all along. That's their job. And you are never going to convince me that the entire US Congress, with their access to information and their staffs and operating budgets, all failed to see what was obvious to we bloggers operating out here on spare change found underneath seat cushions all saw; that the war in Iraq was based on lies.

We do not have a just reason to be in Iraq. We never did.

There were no weapons of mass destruction.

Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11.

The only link between Al Qaeda and Iraq was a "confession" extracted under torture.

Al Qaeda appears to be a front group for CIA and Mossad.

Why are we in Iraq? Why do we remain despite the protests of millions of Americans?

Maybe you should ask these guys.

But the reality is that the entire government of the United States is complicit in the crime of lying the people of this nation into a pointless war of conquest on behalf of Israel. The evidence to justify that war was based entirely on lies, forged documents, and confessions extracted under torture.

Think the reasons to be in Afghanistan are any more honoest? Fool me once ...

Even the official report on 9-11 is based on confessions extracted under torture.

As long as the US remains in Iraq and Afghanistan, the crime is perpetuated.

As long as the US does the bidding of Israel, the crime is perpetuated.

Why are we not seeing the Obama administration act in accordance with the law, which is to end these obviously illegal wars and bring our kids home while they are still alive and healthy.

Or will Israel simply not allow it?

A founding principle of this nation is that the government rules with the consent of the governed.

I do not and never have consented to be ruled by lies and deceptions, nor do I consent to be ruled for the benefit of a foreign government.

And I never will.

How about you? Are you going to be the Good German, I mean the Good American? Are you going to lull your moral conscience to sleep by going along with lies and torture and death, abasing yourself before your masters to such an extent that to call you sheeple is an insult to sheep?

You cannot pretend you do not know what the government has become. You know it. The world knows it. The world knows you know it.

The whole world is watching what Americans, always ready to declare their love and support of human rights and the rule of law, will do now that the true nature of this horror we call the Federal Government is exposed for all to see.

Time to decide what you will do.

The Truth About Richard Bruce Cheney

First, more Americans were killed by terrorists on Cheney's watch than on any other leader's watch in US history.

Second, the fact no attack has occurred on U.S. soil since 9/11--much touted by Cheney--is due almost entirely to the nation's having deployed over 200,000 U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and not to "the Cheney method of interrogation."

Third--and here comes the blistering fact--when Cheney claims that if President Obama stops "the Cheney method of interrogation and torture", the nation will be in danger, he is perverting the facts once again.

Recall that immediately after 9/11, U.S. officials put out the official version of what had motivated the terrorists. “They hate America for its freedom and values,” they cried. The anger and hatred that had motivated the attackers had nothing to do with U.S. foreign policy, U.S. officials claimed.

Yet, today we have President Obama, on the extreme urging of the Pentagon, reneging not only on his campaign promise of “transparency” but also on the commitment U.S. officials made to release the latest batch of torture photos that the Pentagon has kept hidden for some five years.
