CNBC - Dollar Will be Utterly Destroyed, Global Currency, New World Order

"If the global currency crisis unfolds, then inevitably you get an alignment of a global world government. A new global currency and a new world order, so we may be moving towards that," he said.
Webmaster's Commentary: 

And you thought the New World Order was just another conspiracy theory!

Fort Hoodlum, Fort Hoodwink and those the Gods Drive Mad

It is a staggering thing to see, the highly placed and pervasively visible, going on and on about the fall of The Berlin Wall with no mention of the wall that surrounds Palestine. It is amazing to see so many unnamed mouthpieces mentioning that the Fort Hoodwink psychiatrist was a regular at a strip club. Some of the details mirror those made after 9/11 about Mohammed Atta and friends in Florida. This was around the time they were visiting Israeli bagman, Black Jack Abramoff on his gambling boat; as reported by the FBI. It is amazing to hear that this psychiatrist had ancient links to ‘so-called’ 9/11 terror mosques and radical Imans. It is completely amazing that a non combat, medical officer could shoot nearly 45 people on a military base with an automatic handgun and a revolver.

Canadian politician says Vancouver Olympics protesters are terrorists.

Harry Bloy from the BC Liberal party has his own definition on what it means to be a proud Canadian. Bloy expressed his pride at being Canadian “particularly” as the region gets ready to host the Games with the start of the torch relay. He took the opportunity to denounce those Canadians who choose to exercise their rights under section 2(b) of the Charter, stating in the Legislature Monday that “people who protest the Winter Olympics are nothing more than “terrorists” with “limited intellect”.

Police say 2 die in Oregon office park shooting

A man opened fire with a rifle Tuesday at a drug-testing laboratory in suburban Portland, killing one woman and wounding two other people before fatally shooting himself, police said. The shooter and the female victim were not immediately identified.

Ask a veteran: If Afghan war is illegal, US troops and public must refuse deployment

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.” - Mohandas Gandhi, Young India 1924-1926 (1927), p. 1285

CBS news reports that sources confirm the deployment of ~40,000 additional US troops in Afghanistan (two-minute video below). The most important context for troops, officers, and the US public to consider is that if the US war is illegal, we must all refuse deployment and any further engagement. All those with an oath to defend and protect the US Constitution are sworn to refuse such an illegal act (along with being viciously immoral).

BREAKING: Possible hostage situation in Jeff City

Police say there's no confirmation of shots fired or hostages taken at a Jefferson City office building near the Governor's Mansion that's been under lockdown.

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan–The “Inglourious Basterd” Of Fort Hood?

Those who know me are now doubt asking themselves confidently–“Ok, how long before he blames this latest atrocity on the Jews?” waiting to see what kind of complex conspiracy theory I am able to weave out of the Fort Hood massacre…

Well, never one to disappoint, as a matter of fact, I do believe (and with all my heart incidentally) that the Jews/Zionists/Neocons were involved in it. Up to their eyeballs, as a matter of fact. As far as I’m concerned this (the notion that this latest massacre was/is the result of the Jews and their criminal behavior, both in the Middle East and beyond) is not as much a conspiracy theory as it is a conspiracy fact. For me, it is as settled and irrevocable as 2+2 = 4 and the laws governing gravity.

As Foreclosure Nightmares Increase, Will More Homeowners Pay Off Their Bankers in Violence?

Anger and discontent are reaching a boil as a lethal combination of economic corruption and political collusion are deleveraged across the United States.

From recent rampages in Orlando, Fla., to mortgage-related torture in Los Angeles, certain members of the citizenry seem to have had their fill of being manipulated for the financial gain of others, and they’re firing back with force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it appears that this kind of violence may well escalate as people become more desperate with their circumstances.

Suicides in the downturn raise worries about recession’s real cost

Coroner John White is presiding over a sad tally in this northern Indiana county, tracking rising numbers of suicides he believes are linked to the lingering recession.

Rumors of an economic recovery may be whispered elsewhere, but here, where the downturn remains entrenched, 22 people have killed themselves this year, and two more cases were likely suicides, outpacing the county's annual average of 16 self-inflicted deaths.

Goldman Sachs CEO: "doing God's work." Enron CEO: "We are on the side of angels."

Bank executives are cashing-in with bonuses from stock options at record rates (again), with the chair and CEO of Goldman Sachs literally claiming that they are doing God’s work (yes, really). Goldman Sachs makes money through “trading.” For analogy, I suggest reviewing the history of another record-setting company for profits that “traded”: Enron. In the two-minute trailer to the documentary, “The smartest guys in the room,” CEO Jeffrey Skilling also says, “We are the good guys. We are on the side of angels.”

For your consideration: trading that does not produce goods and services is a euphemism for gambling (look it up).

US Army base gunman 'conscious'

someone must be sweating right now.

A US Army major suspected of shooting dead 13 people at military base has regained consciousness and is able to talk, officials have told the BBC.

Maria Gallegos, a spokeswoman for the Brooke Army Medical Center, said Maj Hasan was in a critical but stable condition.
However, she would not say what Maj Hasan had been talking to medical staff about, nor what treatment he was receiving.
A spokesman at the hospital, Dewey Mitchell, told the Associated Press news agency Maj Hasan had been able to speak since Saturday, when he was taken off a ventilator.

In defence of Larry David by Gilad Atzmon

The so called Jewish Humanists, Liberals, progressives and atheists happen to spit on every form of spirituality and divinity. Jewish emancipation has led Jews towards a new form of Atheist zeal that has matured into zero tolerance towards religion. The emancipated believes in ‘reason’ and the ‘spirit of enlightenment’. But it goes further; the Zionists spit on human rights and universal values in the name of Jewish national revival. The Israelis spit white phosphorous on civilians in the name of the war against terror. The Marxist mocks God and religion in the name of ‘working class politics’. In fact to be a Jew is to spit on something. Even the so-called ‘self hating Jews’ spend much of their intellectual effort spitting on themselves.

My book, The CIA Doctors,[i] is based on 15,000 pages of documents I received from the CIA through the Freedom of Information Act and dozens of papers published in medical journals. These papers report the results of research funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Department of the Army, the Office of Naval Research and the CIA. From 1950 to 1972, the CIA funded TOP SECRET research at many leading universities including Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Johns Hopkins and Stanford. There was a series of CIA mind control programs including BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE, MKULTRA, MKSEARCH and MKNAOMI.

Antidepressants Cause Suicide
and Violence in Soldiers
Here are the starting facts: Death by suicide is at record levels in the armed services. Simultaneously the use of antidepressant drugs is also at record levels, including brand names like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa and Lexapro....
Some observed that the drugs often change the personality of the soldiers, making them irritable, edgy, and angry. They fear these drugs many unleash impulsive violence. Meanwhile, because many soldiers don't want to take psychiatric medications, they avoid seeking any kind of help.

Breaking up is (not) hard to do

So all along the watchtower, the princes of war keep their view. That spells balkanization all along. It's full spectrum dominance against the Asian energy security grid. The Pentagon well knows that AfPak is the key land bridge between Iran to the west and China and India to the east; and that Iran has all the energy that both China and India need. The last thing full spectrum dominance wants is to have the AfPak theater subjected to more influence from Russia, China and Iran.

Obama’s Prize tells world ‘War is Peace’

The Nobel Peace Prize was given to a man who, like a character in a George Orwell novel, kills in the name of peace. And as much as his doublespeak would like to drown out the cries of the victims of the sinister cadre of human rights abusers and war criminals that he supports, anyone with an elementary knowledge of current events knows that Obama’s hands are muddied by the muck his allies have thrown on the peoples of the world.

You would think Obama would at least try to compensate for his warmongering and support of bloodthirsty and vindictive foreign governments by rolling back the fascistic policies of the Bush administration.

You would be wrong.

The Evil Empire

The US government is now so totally under the thumbs of organized interest groups that “our” government can no longer respond to the concerns of the American people who elect the president and the members of the House and Senate. Voters will vent their frustrations over their impotence on the president, which implies a future of one-term presidents. Soon our presidents will be as ineffective as Roman emperors in the final days of that empire.

Understanding how nations create money and how the US can reclaim $1 trillion/year from banksters

Below is a concise and lucid explanation of how nations create money by economist John Hotson. This topic is at the heart of our economic problems, and required understanding for competent citizenry.

I’m among many writers who document that Americans are transferring unprecedented amounts of their hard-earned money to the oligarchy controlling our banks and casino-capitalism “investment” institutions. The solution is structurally simple for the public benefit of conservatively $1 trillion every year, and has been advocated by many of America’s sharpest historical minds. States can take control of their financial problems through state-owned banks; ending interest payments on their debt and earning profit by providing 2% mortgages for the good of the public.

Bricklayer shows up at his own funeral in Brazil

A Brazilian bricklayer reportedly killed in a car crash shocked his mourning family by showing up alive at his funeral.

Relatives of Ademir Jorge Goncalves, 59, had identified him as the victim of a Sunday night car crash in Parana state in southern Brazil, police said.

As is customary in Brazil, the funeral was held the following day, which happened to be the holiday of Finados, when Brazilians visit cemeteries to honor the dead.

What family members didn't know was that Goncalves had spent the night at a truck stop talking with friends over drinks of a sugarcane liquor known as cachaca, his niece Rosa Sampaio told the O Globo newspaper. He did not get word about his own funeral until it was already happening Monday morning.

Fort Hood: DoD Experimental PTSD Therapy Backfires?

Reposted (emphasis mine) from alexconstantine's blacklist.

[Major Hasan's] past training, paid for by the US Military, [was] at Virginia Tech University ... "...most likely” one of the US Department of Defenses top PSYOP training centers and where in April, 2007, it suffered the worst school massacre in US history....Even more interesting to note is that... [there] were three other “alleged” gunmen....

Major Hasan... [was] one of the originators of what is called the US Army's “Warrior Combat Reset Program” set up to help American soldiers ... [with PTSD], and which according to these reports led to his being at Fort Hood to “electronically prepare” an experimental group of US Soldiers for their return to the Iraq war zone....

So strong was the American Military and Intelligence establishments’ belief that only by “erasing” the previous “battle stained” memories of their Soldiers could they be made to continue killing and dying that in 2007 they contracted with Russia’s Psychotechnology Research Institute in Moscow to purchase a system [which] was used by the Soviet Military on Russian troops being redeployed to Afghanistan.

Unfortunately for the Americans, ... the previous Soviet experiments... had a very dangerous side-effect of “triggering immediate battle memories” instead of “erasing” them and resulting in masses of Russian troops ... to “erupt” in “immediate violence” which left an estimated 37 of them dead when they began (for no apparent reason) to begin firing upon each other....

Barack Obama: The Naked Emperor

By: David Icke

I am writing this in the last days of 2008 as I watch with dismay as vast numbers of people across the world, including many who should know better, have been duped by the mind-game called Operation Obama.

Even people with some understanding of the conspiracy have said things like: 'Well, at least he's not Bush' and 'Well, at least it's great to see such a new spirit of hope'. No, he's not Bush - he's potentially far more dangerous; and what is the use of a spirit of 'hope' if it's based on a lie? In fact, what use is 'hope' at all?

From Fort Hood to Ramakrishna. Don't be Deceived

And this just in as I am writing… a massacre at Fort Hood. I know Fort Hood, it’s right outside of Austin. It’s one of America’s biggest military bases. Well let me tell you this is going to be a regular event. Do you want to know why? These men can’t feed their families. In some cases they can’t find their families and you sent them to kill people; women, children, men; who cares? They can’t live with themselves now so they are going to turn it on you. In former times, like at Ardennes, they didn’t know that fat guys in suits had sent them off to these bloody and muddy places.

Top Bailout Recipients Spent $71 Million On Lobbying In Year Since Bailout

Twenty-five top recipients of government bailout funds spent more than $71 million on lobbying in the year since they were rescued, an extensive review of federal lobbying records by the Huffington Post reveals.

A year after taxpayers forked over $700 billion to help rescue the biggest names in banking, insurance and the automotive industry, those same institutions are using portions of the cash to influence legislation with a direct impact on taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Ahem). Why is this money not going back to We the People, whose taxpayer dollars bailed out these institutions which were allegedly "...too big to fail"?!?

Second Gunman In Custody At Army's Fort Hood -Report
A second gunman is in custody after a shooting at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas in which at least seven people were killed and 12 wounded, reports KCEN-TV of Waco. The report comes about two hours after a first suspect was captured, shortly after gunfire broke out.
Authorities say the gunmen were dressed in fatigues, though it's not confirmed whether they are military personnel. It's also not known if the victims were military personnel or civilians.
The incident reportedly began at Fort Hood's theater and then moved to the Soldier Readiness Processing Center, Killeen City Public Information Officer Hillary Shine told Fox News. A graduation ceremony was scheduled to take place Thursday.

Nearly two dozen CIA agents have been convicted for their alleged involvement in the kidnapping and rendition of Muslim cleric Abu Omar. He was allegedly kidnapped on a Milan street in 2003 and sent to an Egyptian "black site" with the approval of the CIA and the Italian intelligence service. Though the CIA agents may not have to serve any prison time, the ruling could set a precedent that no government is above basic human rights.

The warlords' president

The Obama administration insists the U.S. is fighting a "war of necessity" in Afghanistan. It has all kinds of rationales--keeping Americans safe, protecting Afghan civilians, liberating Afghan women, crushing the Taliban insurgency, keeping al-Qaeda from using Afghanistan as a base of operation.

But the collaboration between U.S. military and intelligence forces and the warlords, drug dealers and paramilitaries expose these justifications as a pretext for the real reason the U.S. won't bring its troops home from a country that has rejected their presence.

The U.S. wanted war in Afghanistan because it saw the September 11 attacks as an opportunity to pursue its imperial ambitions in Central Asia.

Fox Flu Story Denied by White House

Critical of the reported decision of the administration to use scarce vaccine on detainees, Fox News launched a series of reports including one headlined "Pentagon: Gitmo Detainees to Receive H1N1 Vaccine, Despite White House Claim."

When White House spokesman Robert Gibbs denied the Fox report, that network responded by publishing Mr. Gibbs' denial in a report headlined "White House Responds to Report Terror Suspects Get Priority Treatment for H1N1 Virus."

Fox included a video clip and transcript, which reads:

WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY ROBERT GIBBS: There is no vaccine in Guantanamo, and there's no vaccine on the way to Guantanamo.

QUESTION: So the Pentagon was wrong when they confirmed that on Friday?

GIBBS: I — I don't know what the Pentagon said. I — I know, in asking yesterday, whether or not there was any vaccine there or whether there was any vaccine that was on its way, the answer to both those questions was — was no.

QUESTION: Is that because of the White House stopped it or...

GIBBS: No, that was because there wasn't any there, and there wasn't any on the way.

Obama’s Outreach to Muslim World Teetering

From Pakistan – where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got an earful of growing anti-U.S. sentiment last week – to the West Bank and East Jerusalem – where Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has successfully defied Washington’s demands that he freeze Jewish settlement activity – events appear to have strayed far from the president’s original game plan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps what is characterized as Obama's "game plan" for the Middle East is something radically different from what the writer of this article has outlined.

What Obama is actually achieving in the Middle East is what one could have imagined would be happening in a third term of George Bush; continued instability through escalated occupation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Israel destroying the Palestinians, and a war with Iran which could very well involve Russia on Iran's side.

The US is desperately broke, with many in power believing that another global war will get the US out of its financial predicaments. They also think that it will distract many Americans from the reality that their lives have been destroyed economically through no fault of their own, with good-paying jobs having been outsourced, and no jobs to go to except those paying minimum wage.

But unlike other times when the US used war as a means to get out of its financial predicaments, we don't have the manufacturing capabilities to support a victory in another global war, because manufacturing has been largely outsourced.

I heard some talk about who was responsible for the Baghdad bombing.

The news is the information mouthpiece for a world wide criminal organization whose intention is disinformation and the persecution and slander of the competition. The people working for them know that they are working for a criminal organization. In former times it might not have been so clear cut but it is now.

The New Yorker magazine staff recently censored the word "censored" in my November 2 ad for www.USMediaAndIsrael.com, a blog that looks at how the New York Times and other corporate media stifle their coverage of Israel.

In addition to my brief story, I also share a copy of the home-drawn political cartoon that the New York Times had censored, plus the backstory of how it came to be.

DID the NY Times censor content critical of U.S. media's relations with Israel? Judge for yourself at http://www.usmediaandisrael.com/?p=274

An open letter to the American public: declare obvious torture, demand Truth and Reconciliation

The consent of the governed expressly forbids torture in the US Constitution. This restraint is replicated in domestic law and three times in US-ratified areas of international law (here, here, and here).

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Today's banking crisis is the THIRD trillion dollar plus
US-caused financial meltdown in the last twenty years.

Each one of these crises came into being through the same basic
mechanism...the fraudulent over-valuing of financial assets by
Wall Street - with a "wink and a nod" (and sometimes a lot more)
from the White House and Congress.

The fraudulently valued assets stimulate the economy, impart
the illusion of health and then, inevitably, the fraud goes
too far and the whole house of card comes painfully crashing
back to earth.

The three trillion dollar plus frauds were:

Fraud #1: The so-called "Savings and Loan Crisis" of the late 80s

Fraud #2: The so-called "Tech Bubble" of the late 90s

India is preparing for possible war with China and Pakistan

India is preparing the military for possible war with China and Pakistan. India and Russia have agreed two military pacts, including a 10-year deal on weapons, aircraft, and maintenance contracts potentially worth at least $5 billion, Indian defense officials said. India plans to spend $30 billion over the next five years to buy modern weapons systems and attack planes.

The agreement will certainly help as Russia needs a market and India needs a strategic reassurance to sort out relations that were going sour. India also wants to use the renewed focus on Russia as a counterweight to China, while a strong presence in South Asia could help Moscow keep an eye on China. India fears China is trying to encircle it as they jostle for resources and global influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps, as in the US, a war is considered by the Indian leadership as a way of distracting its population from the massive societal inequities brought about by its growth.

Goldman takes on new role: taking away people's homes

Goldman spent years buying hundreds of thousands of subprime mortgages, many of them from some of the more unsavory lenders in the business, and packaging them into high-yield bonds. Now that the bottom has fallen out of that market, Goldman finds itself in a different role: as the big banker that takes homes away from folks such as the Beckers.

Joining other Wall Street firms that bought millions of subprime mortgages, Goldman companies have gone to courts from California to Florida seeking approval to foreclose on the homes of middle- and lower-income Americans who couldn't keep up with their loans' soaring monthly payments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These subprime loans, with their teaser rates which were going to balloon way out of control, should have been regulated.

But regulating the banks was something the former, and current, administration had - and have - no interest in doing.

Webmaster's Opinion on Obama-Front Man for New World Order

Webmaster's Opinion on Obama-Front Man for New World Order

Since the creation of the CIA by Congress in 1947, the CIA grew quickly into a very powerful secret element of this government. At the end of his two terms as president, President Eisenhower warned against the increasing power of the military-industrial complex.

What President Eisenhower failed to warn against was the insidious, well hidden power of the private central bankers of the world, namely the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England. Neither the Federal Reserve Bank nor the Bank of England are departments of the federal government. Each is a cartel of private banks. In fact, to the best of my knowledge, about 75% of the Federal Reserve Bank is owned by the Bank of England.

Reasons to Doubt the Official Story about the 9/11 Attacks

Reasons to Doubt the Official Story about the 9/11 Attacks
The Bush Regime

by Andrew Mills

The more you study the facts and the circumstantial evidence surrounding the 9/11 attacks, the more you doubt the official explanation of the attacks given in the 9/11 Commission Report. Most all the necessary information is, or has been, available through the major media. It's just a matter of pulling it all together and organizing the data. When you do that, you are left with major doubts about the official story and you begin to suspect that some of our officials may have been involved, at least in the sense that they had fore-knowledge of the attacks and just let them happen.

How long have we watered the Tree of Deceit with the blood of patriots?

(CINCINNATI, Ohio) - In John Farmers book:The Ground Truth: The Story Behind Americas Defense on 9/11, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue...

The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.

Oops! Civilian in joyride on fighter jet pulls ejection switch by mistake but still lands without a scratch

A civilian passenger in an air force display plane got the shock of his life when he reached for something to steady himself during a mid-air manoeuvre - and accidentally activated the ejector seat.

The man was instantly fired through the jet's perspex canopy and was blasted 100 metres into the sky by the rocket-powered emergency chair.

Experts said the man was lucky to escape unharmed following the bizarre incident, which happened last week in South Africa.

CIT Board Approves Chapter 11 Filing

CIT Group Inc. filed for bankruptcy Sunday afternoon, said people familiar with the matter, in a high-stakes restructuring intended to keep the doors open at one of the U.S.'s largest small-business lenders.

CIT's board met early Sunday afternoon, these people said, and the company sought Chapter 11 protection in New York a few hours later. The lender expected to have considerable support from creditors for its "prepackaged" reorganization, which could allow CIT to have its plan approved quickly and emerge from bankruptcy by the end of the year, other people familiar with the matter said.
