Pentagon preps for economic warfare

The Pentagon sponsored a first-of-its-kind war game last month focused not on bullets and bombs — but on how hostile nations might seek to cripple the U.S. economy, a scenario made all the more real by the global financial crisis.

Putting the 'Pirate' Attack in Context

A US ship, owned by a Pentagon contractor with ‘Top Security’ Clearance, was seized off the Somali coast. Reports say the US crew has retaken the ship. But the question remains: Why are the pirates attacking?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the start, this whole affair has seemed like a Disney comedy than a
real story. First the pirates grab a ship carrying emergency supplies; hardly a tasty target. The the US crew regains control of the ship, and now the pirates that can't shoot straight are stuck in a lifeboat with the hostage only the lifeboat is out of gas, and US warships are there with nobody to shoot at.

Hillary is trying to play like she is taking on Tripoli all over again, and the whole affair smells of a staged PR stunt to show the rest of the world how butch the new administration is that has run aground!

New G20 video compounds doubts over police account of Ian Tomlinson's death

New footage obtained by the Guardian today gives an insight into the way police and protesters treated Ian Tomlinson, the man who collapsed and died shortly after being struck and pushed over by the police at last week's G20 protest.

The video provides further evidence that the initial explanation of Tomlinson's final moments released by police was misleading. It also corroborates the version of events given to the Guardian by witnesses to his death, some of whom are pictured in the film.

Police crack '£35m' letter scam

A scam letter scheme which could have netted an estimated £35m a year has been smashed by officers from the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca).

It follows a police raid on a building in Somerset which was being used to process cheques for criminals abroad.

Payments totalling nearly half a million pounds were recovered.

Cheques are now being returned to the 22,000 senders with a letter warning them about the scam and urging them to be more vigilant in future.

Reuters - Helen Chernikoff -NEW YORK (Reuters) - More U.S. consumers are falling behind on their mortgages, an indication that the housing market has yet to hit bottom, a top credit bureau executive told Reuters (April 7).

U.S. Information Systems for Equifax Inc, reported that 7 percent of homeowners with mortgages were at least 30 days late on their loans in February, an increase of more than 50 percent from a year earlier.

He also said 39.8 percent of subprime borrowers were at least 30 days behind on their home mortgage loans, up 23.7 percent from last year.

Missouri MIAC Documents Scandal Leads to Advisory on SPLC & ADL

ALIPAC is issuing a national advisory to all local, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies and officers, along with all DHS Fusion Centers, a warning against any reliance upon faulty and politicized research issued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Anti Defamation League (ADL).

A national scandal emerged in Missouri, after their MIAC Fusion Center issued an eight page document which made many false claims. The documents attempted to politicize police and cast suspicion on millions of Americans. The 'Missouri Documents', as they came to be called, listed over 32 characteristics police should watch for as signs or links to domestic terrorists, which could threaten police officers, court officials, and infrastructure targets.

Iranian nuke plot vaporized in the city: NY banks unwittingly aided in material transfers, says DA

The Manhattan district attorney's office has smashed a sinister plot to smuggle nuclear weapons materials to Iran through unwitting New York banks, the Daily News has learned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you read further down you find out that the materials in question are aluminum, tungsten copper, and steel. The real giveaway is the copper tungsten plate. I am not sure where it would be used in a missile guidance system, but where it is most commonly used is in fabricating mechanical components that are used in high temperature environments. By varying the ratio of copper to tungsten you can change the rate of thermal expansion. This makes copper tungsten an ideal material for mechanical connections between very hot items and items operating at lower temperatures.

Such as you find in power stations.

This story about the metals actually ran some time ago and did not get any traction. But if they are trying to resurrect this one, it means the push for war in Iran is back on, at least in certain quarters!

Paris liberation made 'whites only'

Papers unearthed by the BBC reveal that British and American commanders ensured that the liberation of Paris on 25 August 1944 was seen as a "whites only" victory.

Many who fought Nazi Germany during World War II did so to defeat the vicious racism that left millions of Jews dead.

Yet the BBC's Document programme has seen evidence that black colonial soldiers - who made up around two-thirds of Free French forces - were deliberately removed from the unit that led the Allied advance into the French capital.

Death at a Demonstration

There was a fascinating and drawn out scene outside the Bank of England yesterday when a distinct group of some thirty were attacking the police, one hitting the police with a long pole. Prominent was a group of young Asian lads.

I recognised them because I was crushed up hard for a good while against the same bunch of young Asians outside the Israeli Embassy a couple of months ago, where again they were being inexcusably violent.

The very strange thing was that, plainly from Sky's overhead cam, the Police had the ability to isolate and snatch this group of obviously violent individuals, and the police would have had my support in doing so. But they didn't.

So who are they?

Shoot them. North Korea? Shoot them (twice). Vietnam? Shoot them, then apologize. Japan? Shoot them, then buy TVs and computers from them. Germany? Shoot them, then buy cars from them. Cuba? Shoot them, then sneer at them forever. Indians sitting on land you want? Shoot them, then give them blankets infected with smallpox.

The Death Of Martin Luther King

July 11, 1997
Web posted at: 11:47 a.m. EDT (1547 GMT)

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (CNN) -- Markings on some of the test bullets fired from the rifle believed used in the killing of Martin Luther King Jr. do not match the markings on the bullet that killed King, according to an affidavit filed by confessed killer James Earl Ray's attorneys.

The results of bullet tests, conducted in May, were read in court by Judge Joseph Brown .

Lawyers for Ray, who sought the tests in a bid to prove his innocence, are asking Brown to approve additional tests on Ray's .30-06 hunting rifle .

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FBI claimed that the gun had not been properly cleaned for the test firings and demanded they be allowed to retest, then simply stalled carrying out the new tests until James Earl Ray died in prison. At that point, legal efforts to get at the truth of Martin Luther King's assassination were thrown out of court for "lack of standing."

As for the rifle claimed to have been James Earl Ray's, the marks left on the test bullets were caused by a manufacturing defect, and would have had to have been on all bullets fired previously by that same rifle. Since those marks did not appear on the bullet that killed Dr. King, Ray was indeed innocent. There was no evidence that ever linked him to the murder. He was jailed on the basis of a confession suggested by his conveniently court-appointed lawyer; a confession James immediately retracted to no avail.

Sinister Propaganda From FDA Directed at Iranian Pistachio Industry

While General David "Betray Us" Petraeus must be thrilled with his conversion from traitor to saint in the eyes of the pseudo-left and amazed that such things can be accomplished simply by changing the political party of the president, the group that formerly bashed him with an ad in the New York Times and now supports whatever Obama does is not as new to supporting wars as this simple story suggests.

VIDEO: Red State/Blue State: How the Media Tear Our Nation Apart

The founder of TvNewsLIES.org gives a brief explanation of how the establishment media create and maintain the false perception that our nation is divided into two opposing political communities.

There are hundreds of vital issues on which most Americans stand united. If the American public was aware of many of these issues they would unite to oppose our leaders and other establishment figures. By controlling the discussions of the day and by hiding the important issues, the media create an impression that Americans are divided along party lines on almost every issue of import.

Fusion Center Agents Working Public Forums?

What we're seeing on many forums, attached to radio talk shows, or to local counties that have general forums, allowing national/political input....we're seeing a growing trend of forum infiltration by persons that monitor those forums to quickly debunk, and/or provide disinformation, when the subject matter is about Barack Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, we get a few of those here as well.

Ahead of G20 summit, council told to switch off illegal £15m CCTV network

The security operation at this week's G20 summit was thrown into chaos last night when it emerged that the entire network of central London's wireless CCTV cameras will have to be turned off because of a legal ruling.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has ruled that Westminster council's mobile road cameras - a third of the authority's CCTV network - "do not fully meet the resolution standards required" and must be switched off by midnight tomorrow.

Planting cyber seeds

In a 600-word post, Brad questioned the credibility of an online petition on Smith's website, urging the administration of President Barack Obama to require labeling of biotech foods. He called the petition "sheer political theater" and prodded the activist for purportedly being a yogic flying instructor.

More than 30 comments followed in the next few weeks. On one level, the exchange was just another online debate about GMOs. But this one was notable because of who initiated and hosted it: Monsanto Co.

Realizing Real Estate is Just a Liability - Banks Starting to Walk Away on Foreclosures

The New York Times - Susan Saulny - City officials and housing advocates here and in cities as varied as Buffalo, Kansas City, Mo., and Jacksonville, Fla., say they are seeing an unsettling development: Banks are quietly declining to take possession of properties at the end of the foreclosure process, most often because the cost of the ordeal — from legal fees to maintenance — [and elevated property taxes] exceeds the diminishing value of the real estate.

Washington Post Shills for Terrorists

The Bush administration -especially Dick Cheney - loved and protected the MEK because the MEK ginned up information to justify threatening to attack Iran. The Post notes that “U.S. officials credit the MEK with providing information about Iran’s nuclear program.”

The Post neglects to mention that MEK’s allegations turned out to be crap and were debunked by a National Intelligence Estimate in late 2007.

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation's wealth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me start off by saying I do NOT agree with this article. But I felt I needed to call attention to it because this appears to be the current PR strategy by the rich to stay rich, and it goes something like this; The poor don't really have any reason to be unhappy at losing their homes and jobs; they are just part of an EVIL INSIDIOUS PLOT to alter the natural order of the universe and steal the wealth the gods hath decreed should be ours in perpetuity.

... or something like that.

Keep in mind that American Thinker is the same group that accused the New York Times of anti-Semitism because they reported that Jews in Iran are not subject to the intense political and religious repressions Israel claimed they were.

Bernard Madoff's office in Mayfair, London 'was billion-dollar piggy bank'

Bernard Madoff used the London arm of his corrupt investment business as his personal “piggy bank”, British fraud investigators claimed yesterday.

Madoff Securities International, based in Mayfair, Central London, was “a cog in the global washing machine”, through which the jailed fraudster had laundered billions of pounds, they said.

Last year £1 billion passed from Madoff’s business in New York through one of his London firm’s accounts and then back across the Atlantic. Other London accounts were used to pay for the construction of a £5 million yacht, the Bull, which is at anchor near Antibes in the South of France.

'Catholics, gypsies suffered more than Jews'

A Brazilian archbishop has suggested that Catholics and gypsies had been more intensely victimized than Jews during the Second World War.

"The Jews talk about six million people killed. But how many Catholics were victims of the Holocaust? They were 22 million in all," Archbishop Dadeus Grings, from Porto Alegre in southern Brazil, told advertising magazine Press & Advertising.

James Petras: Regional Wars and the Decline of the US Empire

Zionists in power means that the US empire will continue to energetically and aggressively pursue military confrontations and regional wars in the Middle East at the behest of Israel. At no point has the Zionist-dominated White House or Congress questioned the exorbitant costs of serving Israeli interests – even in the midst of a major economic depression. Virtually the entire major media establishment and all 51 Major American Jewish Organizations, which are pressing for blockades, sanctions and preemptive war against Iran, are free to ignore the tremendous loss and suffering that this diversion of billions of US tax dollars from domestic investment to wars for Israel has caused to the American people. Zionist control over White House Middle East policy ensures that the US will be mired in endless wars in the Persian Gulf and South Asia because Israel has an open-ended military agenda encompassing the entire region and an army of agents willing and able to impose this agenda on the American government."

How the Scam Works

Here’s the rip-off as I see it. For an outlay of $750,000, the bank rids its books of a mortgage worth $2 million, for which it receives $4,250,000. It gets twice as much as the junk is worth.

The more the banks holding junk mortgages pay for this toxic waste, the more the government will pay as part of its 85 per cent. So the strategy is to overpay, overpay, and overpay. Paying 15 per cent is a small price to pay for getting the government to put in 85 per cent to take the most toxic waste off your books.

The free market at work, financial style.

Iowa prosecutors approve delay of Agriprocessors trial

Iowa prosecutors agreed Thursday to a delay in the state trial of Agriprocessors Inc. and its former leaders on child-labor charges.

The Postville meatpacker, its owner and former managers face thousands of charges that they used underage workers. The trial was to be April 20.

The holdup involves electronic records that federal agents seized when they raided the company last May. According to papers that prosecutors filed Thursday, federal investigators are still going over those records, which include internal company e-mails, and they have not turned them over to lawyers in the child-labor case.

UN & IMF Back Agenda For Global Financial Dictatorship

As Georgetown professor and CFR historian Carroll Quigley noted, the goal of the banking families and their minions consists of “nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole… controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”

In 2007, Robert Mundell, “the father of the euro,” noted that “international monetary reform usually becomes possible only in response to a felt need and the threat of a global crisis.”
