Times confirms Democrat tried to stop wiretapping story, possibly before 2004 election

The New York Times confirmed late Monday that a top Democratic congresswoman called the paper in 2004 and tried to keep it from publishing an article exposing the Bush Administration’s warrantless wiretapping program — possibly helping to sway the balance in the 2004 presidential election.

Obama Campaign's Multi-Million Dollar Propaganda Firm Deployed in Iraq to Advise on "New Media"

Worse Than Bush

Not only did Obama managed to change the draft text of the conference to omit mentions of the racism inherent to Zionism and the Israeli state, and followed that by having all the side activities critical of Israel pushed out side of the conference, but also he boycotted the conference, influencing a slew of western countries that, despite histories rich with racism and colonialism, had some qualms about associating with Bush.

So be careful, if Obama looks better than Bush, it means you just don’t know how he’s about to screw you. Careful Cuba and Venezuela. And if you’re looking for a black president to finally make America discuss its history of racism, wait a little longer.

Funding the new global currency - Obama Proposes $100 Billion Loan for I.M.F.

The New York Times - WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama Monday proposed a $100 billion U.S. loan to the International Monetary Fund to boost the IMF's war chest and urged a bigger stake in the IMF for emerging powers like China and India.

In a letter sent to Democrat and Republican leaders in the U.S. Congress, Obama said the U.S. funding "does not represent a budgetary expenditure or any increase in the deficit since it effectively represents an exchange of assets."

Zionist supremacists from California to Occupied Jerusalem to Sydney are quite nervous these days as they watch many people around world getting themselves freed, slowly but definitely, from the shackles of Zionist propaganda.

For over sixty years, classical Zionist lies about the crime against humanity, otherwise called Israel, prevailed to a large extent. The black was turned into white, the white into black, the big lie was transformed into a “truth” glorified by millions. The impoverished and thoroughly tormented Palestinian victims were portrayed as “terrorists and murderers, even anti-Semites who were trying to finish what Hitler had started.”

Official: Dissent Now Unpatriotic

Dissent was SO patriotic not so long ago, wasn’t it? Dissent against war, dissent against torture, dissent against wiretapping, dissent against Gitmo, dissent against rendition, dissent against government abuse of power. In fact, now-Secretary of State Clinton was quite vocal on the matter back in the day:

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. And we should stand up and say we are Americans, and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!”

Right On, Hillary! You Go, Girl! Why is that all different now? I thought she said any administration. Heard plenty of cheers then. Only jeers now. Why is that? Wouldn’t be a double standard, would it?

Gonzales ‘blocked prosecution of Democrat who helped keep lid on wiretapping story’

A powerful California congresswoman who at one time appeared likely to chair the House Intelligence Committee was allegedly caught by an NSA wiretap in 2005 pledging to intervene in an espionage case involving Israeli lobbyists, Congressional Quarterly’s Jeff Stein revealed Sunday.

Quoting former senior Bush Administration officials, the article also alleges that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales conspired to drop criminal action against the then-ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Jane Harman (D-CA), because he needed her help when a firestorm of criticism erupted in December 2005 after the New York Times published details about the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program.

[Yes -they are, but these sucker-buyers are quickly finding out their huge mistake when city officials come after them immediately with fines, fees, often-enough criminal charges, and demands the new buyer have the buildings demolished and torn down at terrific expense (to the $1000 buyer). The banks are simply dumping their liability onto you when they sell you a $1000 home they left vacant oftentimes for 5 years. BUYER BEWARE OF THE PITFALLS!]

President Obama: Please Create a Financial Truth & Reconciliation Commission

Harvard Business Publishing - Rosabeth Moss Kanter - The Change Master or THE CHANGLING? - Populist anger is boiling all around us. An Economist cover proclaims "the war against the rich." A Wall Street Journal headline reads "small business versus bailed-out banks" with a photo of picketers demonstrating outside a Bank of America branch in Chicago (they also held a prayer vigil). Outrage over the AIG bonuses was widespread. Polls show that confidence in business executives is at an all-time low in the U.S., and not only because of failures in financial and auto companies. Retirees whose pensions have plummeted and homes have been foreclosed are probably too tired to protest, but the undercurrent of anger and blame is everywhere.

Columbine 10 Years Later

Certainly there are many interests that oppose private citizens being able to stop crime. Organized crime tops that list, followed by many polioce officials who see their own authority and pensions threatened by a public able to take care of themselves. Finally there are the pro-dictatorship forces in the US which see a disarmed and hyelpless population as crucial to their designs.

It is in this context that the very odd aspects of the Columbine shooting need to be examined. Looking back from a time when we know the government lied about weapons of mass destruction, and with 84% of Americans no longer trusting the official story of 9-11, it is valid to ask if Columbine was a staged event to trick Americansinto surrendering their Second Amendment rights.

Obama's Environmental Disaster

Okay, I get it. Carbon dioxide is bad. It’s a pollutant. Thus, based on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed finding on greenhouse gases, everyone is now a polluter.

Pardon my sarcasm, but the EPA’s plan to equate carbon dioxide, the substance that we emit every minute of every day of our lives, with pollution—a term I equate with noxious substances like benzene, dioxin, and PCBs—seems like something out of a bad science fiction novel.

The Tower of Basel: Secretive Plans for the Issuing of a Global Currency

The key to their success, said Quigley, was that the international bankers would control and manipulate the money system of a nation while letting it appear to be controlled by the government. The statement echoed one made in the eighteenth century by the patriarch of what would become the most powerful banking dynasty in the world. Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild famously said in 1791:

“Allow me to issue and control a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes its laws.”

The public has been told that the members of the church had .50 caliber rifles. Had they used them, the cars and trucks would have not stopped the bullets and there would be bullet holes on the sides of the vehicles facing the cameras where the rounds exited.

In short, there is nothing in these photos to support the suggestion that the members of the church were actually firing on the BATF at this point in the raid, let alone that the members of the church fired first.

Reuven Pedatzer, in a review of Avner Cohen's Israel and the Bomb, in the Israeli Newspaper Ha'aretz on February 5, 1999 wrote, "The murder of American president John F. Kennedy brought to an abrupt end the massive pressure being applied by the U.S. administration on the government of Israel to discontinue their nuclear program."

Digital World: What creeps under the Internet rocks

For example, one of the premier internet anti-Semites runs his site (and home business) from the suburbs of Honolulu, Hawaii. This blogger, who claims to know "what really is happening" in the world, is a radical leftist/liberal type, whose site gets a fair amount of traffic, and seems to be a source of material for many other anti-Semitic blogs. Most of his content consists of links to "legitimate" news sites, with his commentary.

Note, incidentally, that I haven't mentioned this person's name, or site; the reason is that Wikipedia recently banned a biography page on this guy, because he's famous only among conspiracy theory nuts. He hasn't been mentioned in the real media enough, and I don't intend to help him (if you want details, drop me an e-mail).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the article that the Jerusalem Post wrote in an apparent response to KILLING THE FAMILY OF JESUS, which was posted at the Desert Peace website

I am linking this obvious hit piece here because people asked what all the fuss was about (and because fair is fair; the JP hit piece drove a lot of traffic to WRH and Desert Peace and I am returning the favor). I also wanted to point out that the comments added to this article included many positive comments for Desert Peace and WRH.

Lessons of the Mengele Affair

In its sensationalized treatment of the Mengele story, the mass media ignored what is probably the most important lesson of this entire affair. Right up until the summer of 1985. when it was conclusively established that Mengele had been dead since 1979, the "Holocaust experts" and professional "Nazi hunters" solemnly insisted that the German doctor was alive. Most of them maintained that he was hiding in Paraguay.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

John Demjanjuk has already been charged with being Ivan the Terrible, convicted, sentenced to death, and almost executed when the charges against him were revealed to be false. Now he faces a second trial based on a single written note whose author is dead and unavailable for cross examination.

Careful examination continues to reveal that the media stories about Nazis are at the best inaccurate, at worst outright fabrications. In the Mengele case, reports that he was seen alive in 1984 and 1985 were clearly propagandistic lies since Mengele had actually died in 1979.

Maybe it is time for a great deal more skepticism to be applied to some of the hysterical claims presented as "evidence" against the targets of the Jewish state.

Janet Reno Awarded the Justice Award by the American Judicature Society

The award is the highest honor given by the society for Reno's devotion and dedication to the administration of justice in the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By awarding this to Reno (right before the 16th anniversary of the Waco massacre), the American Judicature Society has absolutely blown any bit of professional credibility they may have ever had with this despicable perversion.

Of course, this country has a long history of rewarding those who do the dirty work necessary to achieve the results desired by certain interests in the US government.

Reno gave the order to gas a church-full of woman and children at Waco with CS gas which, cannot be used in war internationally by treaty. The dispersal agent used in conjunction with this gas causes lunges to melt.

Mentioning Reno's name in the same breath with the word "justice" is enough to make me vomit.

Of course there is no NAFTA superhighway, and no plans to build one, any more than there is any serious talk of a North American Union. "

A mystery is unfolding in the world of college fundraising: During the past few weeks, at least nine universities have received gifts totaling more than $45 million, and the schools had to promise not to try to find out the giver's identity.

It's not clear whether the gifts came from an individual, an organization or a group of people with similar interests. In every case, the donor or donors dealt with the universities through lawyers or other middlemen. Some of the money came in cashier's checks, while other schools received checks from a law firm or another representative.

Okay, and what CONDITIONS came with the money? What topics are now banned from the campus? What subjects may not be taught or studied? What books and websites are banned on campus?

Contrary to the image of a dangerous gun nut put out in the media in an effort to justify the burning of the church, official BATF records prove that David Koresch was rather harmless, so much so that the BATF agents invited him to go shooting with them just 9 days before they raided the church. Koresch supplied the ammunition. The BATF agents allowed Koresch to try out their weapons.

Holocaust museum: Sunday's opening in Skokie to have powerful message of hope amid the horrors

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every Holocaust museum is a monument to people who REFUSED TO STAND UP AND DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST TYRANNY IN GOVERNMENT and instead demanded the rest of the world step in to protect them!

Every Holocaust museum is a testimonial to people who chose to remain silent and inactive even as their neighbors were being rounded up and sent to slave labor camps.

Every Holocaust Museum is a reminder of all the Jewish people who could have stood up to stop Hitler and decided not to.

Is that an ideal we want to teach our children in museums? To knuckle under, to go along, to bow, to obey, even when you know the leadership of the nation is on a dangerous and destructive path?

Israel demands money and unconditional support from the rest of the world with the claim that "we" let it happen. But in truth, isn't it the people who were there in Germany, closest to the crimes that bear the blame for allowing "it", whatever "it" really was, to happen?

Every Holocaust museum is an attempt to re-write history, to transfer the blame for one people's inaction and cowardice onto the rest of the world.

Where are the museums in every American city to the American soldiers who DID step in, often at loss of life, to stop Hitler from completing whatever his plans were?

Why are we not seeing Museums to them in every American city?

Are the lives of Americans somehow less important?

* Failing to prosecute the criminal actions of those companies and their big wigs

* Failing to break up zombie insolvent companies

* Slipping trillions of dollars into the hands of the richest and most powerful companies under the table

Inside the beltway cesspool/hot tub, the corrupt elite will have none of it.

While he could have argued, like Doug Feith, that those engaging in the torture or ordering it were more culpable than the lawyers (as they are indeed), he instead argued that ONLY those present for the torture are culpable, thus exonerating Hitler, Pinochet, and every other official who has ordered a crime from a distance.

Apparently the recent article about Columbine by USA Today has not set well with the actual witnesses to the event. So, I agree, what was Greg Toppo thinking?

Trying to create a controversy as a distraction?

CNN Reporter Harassed at Chicago "Tea-Party"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels like a staged event, and notice that the talking bimbo still rants on the government talking points; that this is all right-wing, anti-government extremists, etc. etc. etc. etc.

Don't Fall For the Old Divide And Conquer Trick

The powers-that-be are trying to distract us from the looting of our wallets by the big banks by creating a left-versus-right, us-versus-them drama.

You know, the old divide-and-conquer schtick.

Americans from across the political spectrum are furious at the financial elite who have robbed us blind, and their enablers in government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No shit!

New bird flu cases suggest the danger of pandemic is rising

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this batch of news stories about the bird flu suggests a distraction from the tax protests. I mean, bird flu has never become the pandemic that has been waved at us for going on three years, and even this article reports that the more recent cases are less severe as the flu mutates to be more compatible with its host.

Remember, a virus that kills its host is not very successful. The best viruses learn to live with their hosts, indeed form symbiotic relationships with them.

US taxpayers' costs likely to rise after AIGFP staff quit

Twenty key executives have left AIG Financial Products (AIGFP) after the furore over their bonuses, increasing the cost of rescuing the troubled business to US taxpayers, its chief executive has said.

As many as seven of the outgoing executives were from AIGFP's London office, where much of the division's most toxic derivatives business was done. The financial products side has been blamed for pushing AIG to the brink of collapse after selling $2.7 trillion (£1.8 trillion) worth of insurance on securities backed by mortgages and other credit products. As mortgage defaults surged, claims by AIG's counterparties rocketed. The insurer was bailed out last September with $80 billion of US taxpayers' money.

Riddle of missing CCTV as pictures reveal there WERE cameras near G20 death

The police watchdog chief investigating the death of a man at the G20 protest who was shoved over by an officer is under fire for wrongly claiming there were no CCTV cameras in the area.

Nick Hardwick, chair of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, said last week that no cameras covered the spot near the Bank of England where Ian Tomlinson was assaulted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After the fiasco of the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes you would think that the British police would understand that they cannot lie and get away with it in this age of the internet.

94 Years of Serfdom

This April 15 is the 94th year that Americans have had to file an income tax. For most Americans, the day is a non-event. The federal and state governments have already collected the taxes due by withholding from each paycheck over the course of the calendar year. Most Americans never saw the money and have no real idea that they earned it.

Some Americans have their incomes over-withheld as a form of forced savings. They look forward to tax time as it means they will receive a refund check from the government that they can use for a summer vacation, a big screen TV, a new appliance, or a down payment on a new car.

Few Americans realize that over the last 94 years they have been enserfed and have no more rights to their own labor than medieval serfs or 19th century slaves.

The FBI is AWOL on 911 Forensics - Too busy, not interested, just not the kind of thing the FBI does

American's Journey The FBI: cast on TV as a legendary law enforcement agency. The best of the best - at least we are told. Heck they can solve any crime, even if there are only traces of evidence left, like hair, saliva, fingerprints - they are the ones we Americans turn to when all we have are straws to grasp for evidence...well ... that is ... as long as the evidence discussed has nothing to do with the 911 attacks on America!

In the case of 911 the FBI is blind, and even if they could see, their actions demonstrate that they have no interest in the evidence remaining from the attacks - they have better things to do [...]

Gore TV is having a hard time these days. The IPO plan has hit a snag. There's not enough useful idiots with money to invest in his child propaganda channel.

Don't feel too sorry for Al. He has plenty of other schemes up his sleeve. The one where he will really make his money is the carbon tax, cap and trade, carbon credit scam and pretty soon it will have the legitimacy of law behind it.

Tea Bag Terror: Protests Causing Scares, Evacuations At Congressional Offices

A recent email to hundreds of thousands of conservatives exhorted them to "Send a Tea Bag to Washington, D.C. for $1." Other activists have organized local efforts to mail tea bags to the offices of their members of Congress.

It's all part of the anti-Obama, anti-tax "tea party" movement, backed aggressively by corporate-funded "astroturf" organizations like FreedomWorks. But now one of their symbolic protests is drawing attention for the wrong reasons.

Local reports indicate that the practice of mailing actual tea bags to legislators has repeatedly raised security concerns, and sometimes forced the evacuation of congressional offices in anthrax-like scares.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More propaganda. Note yet again the attempt to portray the tax revolt as a purely GOP and anti-Obama phenomenon.

And now this lame-ass attempt to portray tax protesters as potential sources of terror threats.

10 years later, the real story behind Columbine

Their rampage put schools on alert for "enemies lists" made by troubled students, but the enemies on their list had graduated from Columbine a year earlier. Contrary to early reports, Harris and Klebold weren't on antidepressant medication and didn't target jocks, blacks or Christians, police now say, citing the killers' journals and witness accounts. That story about a student being shot in the head after she said she believed in God? Never happened, the FBI says now.

An emerging progressive consensus on Obama's executive power and secrecy abuses

In the last week alone, the Obama DOJ (a) attempted to shield Bush's illegal spying programs from judicial review by (yet again) invoking the very "state secrets" argument that Democrats spent years condemning and by inventing a brand new "sovereign immunity" claim that not even the Bush administration espoused, and (b) argued that individuals abducted outside of Afghanistan by the U.S. and then "rendered" to and imprisoned in Bagram have no rights of any kind -- not even to have a hearing to contest the accusations against them -- even if they are not Afghans and were captured far away from any "battlefield."

Did Bank of America break the law by not telling its shareholders about Merrill Lynch’s plan to pay out $3.6 billion in bonuses before the banks merged? The SEC is investigation the matter, with its chairwoman writing that the regulatory body is “carefully reviewing the Bank of America disclosure.” According to the Financial Times, “Federal securities law prohibits institutions from ‘omitting material facts’ in connection to the purchase or sale of securities.”

Tea Party scam, herding technique, 'controlled opposition'

"Excitement is building over the hundreds, if not thousands of "tea parties" planned for April 15, 2009. Glenn Beck, the new knight in shining armor and $50 million dollar anchor man for FAUX (FOX) News Network has been leading the charge. Here's a guy who drew his paycheck for years from the liberal CNN suddenly jumping ship to a network owned by porn king, Rupert Murdoch. Beck has also been promoting a one million man march on Washington, DC. Don't waste your time or money. This is to herd desperate Americans into nothing more than another feel good exercise."

Why I know weapons expert Dr David Kelly was murdered, by the MP who spent a year investigating his death

My investigations have since convinced me that it is nigh- on clinically impossible for Dr Kelly to have died by his own hand and that both his personality and the other circumstantial evidence strongly militate against suicide.

Given that his death was clearly not an accident, that leaves only one alternative - that he must have been murdered.

This is not a conclusion I have come to lightly. I simply set out to examine the facts, to test the evidence, and to follow the trail wherever it took me.

The account I give in this series may not be correct in all respects, but I suggest that it is rather more credible than the verdict reached by Lord Hutton.

The September 19 arrest of two undercover Special Air Service officers in Basra, traveling in an unmarked car containing weapons and explosives, has led to numerous accusations that they were acting as agents provocateurs.
