Paul Craig Roberts: Why Propaganda Trumps Truth

Naive people think that if the US government’s explanation of 9/11 was wrong, physicists and engineers would all speak up. Some have (see above). However, for most physicists and engineers this would be an act of suicide. Physicists owe their careers to government grants, and their departments are critically dependent on government funding. A physicist who speaks up essentially ends his university career. If he is a tenured professor, to appease Washington the university would buy out his tenure as BYU did in the case of the outspoken Steven Jones.

An engineering firm that spoke out would never again be awarded a government contract. In addition, its patriotic, flag-waving customers would regard the firm as a terrorist apologist and cease to do business with it.

Flashback: China Hired for Homeland Defense

As if we didn't have enough to worry about – what with the trillions in taxpayer bailouts of the failed banks, quasi-government mortgage lenders and automakers – listen to this tale of madness from Washington.

A company run by the son of Chinese Pesident Hu Jintao, who does business with Iran, Cuba and Venzuela, was hired a year ago for $1.9 million to X-ray cargo being loaded on to cruise ships in Los Angeles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What deliciously ironic timing of this article: right after the US government said yesterday that China was one of the US's biggest challenges!

Whistleblower: Baucus health bill an ‘absolute gift’ to insurers

The health care reform plan proposed by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus is an “absolute gift” to health care insurance companies, says an industry whistleblower.

Wendell Potter, a former executive at Cigna, said the Baucus plan “would not provide affordable coverage … gives the industry too much latitude to charge higher premiums based on age and geographic location, fails to mandate employer coverage, and pushes consumers into plans with limited benefits,” Politico reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported here on 16 June, 2009:

http://www.democracynow.org/2009/6/16/report_senator_max_baucus_received_more

"Montana Senator Max Baucus, the chair of the Senate Finance Committee, is the Senate’s point man on healthcare reform. A new article in the Montana Standard finds that Senator Baucus has received more campaign money from health and insurance industry interests than any other member of Congress. The article says, “In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals.”"

Baucus is simply another extremely overt "corpritute" who takes money from those insurance interests which supports him, and delivers the goods in terms of legislation which benefits his supporters, but absolutely does not benefit We the People.

Duh, US national security IS NOT threatened by Afghanistan

The chair of the Joint Chiefs testified to Congress today that “success” in Afghanistan requires more US troops and “certainly much more time.” Senator McCain Orwell-spoke that each day we wait to send more US troops to Afghanistan to put their lives in danger, “puts lives in danger.” President Obama defended the strategy of war to produce peace and happiness by saying, "You never step into the same river twice. And so Afghanistan is not Vietnam." I think the president is absolutely correct with my observations about stepping into the same river for a second time: the experience is not quite the same, only about 99%. Polling data also show American support for this war is at its lowest: 58% disapprove and 39% approve.

Is Black Racism Possible?

The State of Racism: Part 1 - Is Black Racism Possible?
Guy White - 3/9/2008
Accusations of white racism are rampant, with the topic of race turning immediately to the alleged hate deep in the heart of every white person. In fact, any “dialogue” on race is nothing more than a vicious black attack on whites who cannot defend themselves and usually respond with a payment to black organizations and neighborhoods from the government and corporations. But what about black racism? Is it even possible? If so, does it exist? And if it exists, is it more or less virulent than white racism?"Black racism is possible. Racism is an ideology and anyone, including blacks, can embrace it."

Rockefeller & Co CEO dies from apparent suicide

James McDonald, a prominent adviser to wealthy families as chief executive of investment management group Rockefeller & Co, died of a single gunshot wound on Sunday, local authorities said on Tuesday.

McDonald, 56, was found dead in his car near a strip mall in Dartmouth, Massachusetts on Sunday afternoon. Police are still investigating.

"The preliminary investigation concludes that this was an apparent suicide," Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter said.

Yale pharmacology head, Dr. Joseph Schlessinger, suppressed site exposing sexual, financial misconduct, 14 Sep 2009

Earlier this year or late last year, undisclosed individuals, possibly the aggrieved parties in those cases, registered "josephschlessinger.com", where they placed the court records, transcripts, and links to news articles, all woven together in a morally indignant tone that questioned how Dr. Schlessinger had ever been appointed Yale Pharmacology Chair, given this background.

Rather than suing for libel, which may have been a difficult case to sustain, given that most of his critics' allegations were based on the public record, Dr. Schlessinger took a case to the WIPO, or World Intellectual Property Organization, where he claimed that he owned the commonlaw rights to "josephschlessinger.com".

History Says US Is Headed For Hell On Earth

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Join the Appeal for Truth about 9/11

September 11, 2009
Peter Dale Scott, with Michael Berger and Janice Matthews

In the last few days Glenn Beck and the Washington Times have forced Van Jones to resign as environmentalist "green jobs" adviser to the White House. His principal offense: having signed a 2004 Statement from 911truth.org calling for a new investigation of the events of 9/11.

This is a moment of truth for all who want America to be an open society. As the Los Angeles Times reported on September 8, "Other conservatives, smelling blood in the water, are sharpening their knives." Why should they not? The White House has just capitulated to a dishonest attack claiming that Jones, because he signed the 911truth Statement, "thinks the Bush administration blew up the World Trade Centers and covered it up." You can check Beck's capacity for accuracy by comparing this claim to the relevant call in the Statement itself: "for immediate public attention to unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

US Launches Military Strike in Somalia Against al Qaeda Target

The dead terrorist, Saleh Ali Nabhan, is believed to have taken part in the 1998 attacks on U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. He is also believed to have orchestrated the 2002 bombing of a resort hotel in Mombasa, Kenya, and a failed missile attack on an Israeli airliner leaving Mombasa airport.
Several sources tell ABC News at least one U.S. helicopter fired on a convoy carrying suspected al Qaeda targets in southern Somalia. An American official says a U.S. Navy ship was also nearby to monitor the situation and provide assistance if needed.
Ali Nabhan's death has not yet been officially confirmed, but sources tell ABC News that his body is now in U.S. custody.

Iraq and Afghanistan don't need US troops for security. They can ask the UN if they want help

One of the arguments for US troops to remain in the two countries we invaded is that even if our wars were mistakes, it’s our duty to stay until those countries can manage their own security. If US troops leave, we’ll subject civilians to escalating violence.

As eminent Princeton philosopher Harry Frankfurt distinguished in his 2005 Bestseller as a strictly academic term, that rhetoric is bullshit.

When political “leadership” makes that argument, it’s a lie of omission. Without the comprehensive information that Iraq and Afghanistan have full authority within their governments to make that determination for themselves, that statement is misleading Americans into thinking that US security is their only option. It is not.

Video: The Health Insurance Racket

CIGNAs Edward Hanway spends his holidays in a $13 million beach house in New Jersey. Meanwhile, regular Americans are routinely denied coverage for the care they need when they need it most.

Welcome to the American health insurance industry. Instead of helping policyholders attain the health security they need for their families, big insurance companies get rich by denying coverage to patients. Now theyre sending lobbyists to Washington, DC to twist the arms of lawmakers to oppose reform of the status quo. Why? Because the status quo pays.

IAEA 'bans' attacks on nuclear installations

An Iranian proposal prohibiting military attacks against nuclear installations worldwide has been approved by the UN nuclear watchdog's general conference, an Iranian official says.

"Iran's proposal … has been approved in the meeting," said Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh, Iran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, on the sidelines of the week-long General Conference in Vienna.

Considered the highest policymaking body of the IAEA, the General Conference meets annually to consider issues such as non-proliferation, nuclear safety, nuclear safeguards and nuclear security.

Obama: Run on fraud; govern by stealth

Obama: Run on fraud; govern by stealth
Sept. 11, 2009 By Dave Weinbaum
Candidate Barack Hussein Obama did whatever it took to be elected.
President Barack Hussen Obama is determined to hide his real motives by stealth and deceit.
"Obama has a penchant for making HC speeches that alter his intent. Just like his recent 157,929th news conference/HC speech, he indicted the Cambridge Police as "Stupid" while defending his friend, Hahvad Professor Louie Gates. HC was put on the backburner while Barack played racial politics cover-up at a beer fest.
Last night, SC Republican, Rep. Joe Wilson blurted out the words "YOU LIE!" after one of the many fibs told by our Dear Leader. Never mind Barack Obama called millions of Americans liars for objecting to what's actually in House Bill 3200.

Size Matters; So Do Lies

The way this false estimate came into being is relatively simple: Matt Kibbe, the president of FreedomWorks, lied, claiming that ABC News had reported numbers of between 1.0 and 1.5 million when they never did anything of the sort. A few tweets later, the numbers had been exaggerated still further to 2 million. Kibbe wasn't "in error", as Malkin gently puts it. He lied. He did the equivalent of telling people that his penis is 53 inches long.

Malkin herself did not lie; she merely repeated a lie.

Mock the protesters at your peril: business as usual suddenly isn't so good for Democrats these days, and the sentiments of the 70,000 people who marched on Washington surely mirror those of millions more sitting at home. They were done a disservice by being represented by a liar like Kibbe.

The simple answer to most of what is going on everywhere is that humanity has an enemy whose intent is to enslave and torment it and all roads lead to The Rothschild Castle. The intention is clearly stated in the founder’s own words. The solution is for humanity to storm the castle and take back what has been stolen. No matter how you reason it. No matter how you strategize or brainstorm, there is only one solution. The people of the world must overthrow the overlords and they will. They will.

Americans' protest in D.C. was NOT a race riot

September 13,2009 America spoke By James Simpson
America spoke September 12th in Washington, DC. Real America. Not black America, not white America, not Hispanic or Asian America, not even conservative or liberal America. Real America. There were mothers, sons, fathers, daughters, newborn children and kids on the way up; there were many, many elderly and a lot of disabled folks, young and old, in wheelchairs. Many of these people had never been to a protest before in their lives. People were pleasant, polite and considerate. There was not a drunken eye in the house.

GOP Sen. Snowe urged Obama to take 'public option off the table'

U.S. Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) claims to have urged the president to "take the public option off the table" due to the level of Republican opposition.

Speaking to CBS News anchor Bob Schieffer on Sunday, Snowe suggested that President Barack Obama had shown "flexibility" on the key feature of his reform proposals during his State of the Union address on Wednesday,

She added: "It's universally opposed by all Republicans in the Senate, and therefore there's no way to pass a plan that includes the public option.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dancing rather blatantly and awkwardly to your master's tune yet again, Senator?

As reported on 10 June, 2009 at:

"Snowe's Ties To Health Care Industry Raise Concern As Reform Talk Heats Up"

"The Senate Republican who is front and center in the health care debate has received more than $1 million in campaign contributions from the health care industry. Her staff, too, has ties to some of the biggest players in the private insurance, with major stakes in the reform effort."

Snowe is just one of the health insurance industry's "fixers" in the Senate, making sure that what might be a benefit to American citizens will never see the light of day.

Way to go, Senator Snowe! You have just clearly demonstrated who's side you're on, and it is not on the side of We the People.

Hawaii tax collections worsen in July, August

HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii's state budget deficit grew larger Thursday, and Gov. Linda Lingle emphasized that savings will have to come from government employees.

The Department of Taxation reported that tax collections fell 5 percent in July and August, a steeper decline than the 1.5 percent dip forecast by the Council on Revenues for the current fiscal year that began July 1.

''We simply cannot continue to spend beyond our means,'' Lingle said in a statement. ''The reality is we can no longer afford to maintain the current level of labor expenses.''

The drop represents an additional $36 million loss from the state budget, on top of the existing two-year budget deficit of about $900 million.

Study: Hawaii’s roads among worst in nation

Hawaii's major roads and highways are some of the roughest rides in the nation, according to a new report, which estimates that rutted thoroughfares cost each Hawaii driver about $500 a year in vehicle repairs, accelerated wear and tear and increased fuel consumption.

The report highlights how roadway conditions cost drivers, businesses - and lives. The study warns that the situation will only get worse unless the state can secure more funding to address backlogged repairs and an aging roadway system.

Lava maps causing angst on Big Island

PAHOA, Hawaii - The U.S. Geological Survey's 35-year-old maps of lava danger zones in this southern corner of the Big Island are a tableau of earthy colors and odd shapes originally meant for scientific and planning purposes.

The maps have also long been used by the home insurance industry to assess lava hazard risks. But in the last year or two, the maps have become a source of contention as insurers have hiked rates or completely abandoned areas that are deemed to be the most dangerous.

Fannie Mae, the huge backer of home mortgages, recently declared it would no longer do so in the two most hazardous zones. That has residents pointing fingers of blame at the charts that even the Geological Survey acknowledges are outdated.

Undercounting deaths of US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan

Contractor deaths and injuries (around 30,000 so far) are rarely reported but they highlight the United States' steadily growing dependence on private enterprise.

The present ratio of about one contractor for every uniformed member of the U.S. armed forces is more than double that of every other major conflict in American history, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

That means the world's only superpower cannot fight its war nor protect its civilian officials, diplomats and embassies without support from contractors.

The Sham Debate Over Obama's Af-Pak War

So what is there to debate? The president has framed the issue as one of inevitability. Last month Obama told a veterans group that, "If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which Al Qaeda would plot to kill more Americans." That's the same rationale that George Bush deployed to justify not only the Afghanistan invasion, eight years ago, but the Iraq invasion, the war against Somalia and, indeed, the whole concept of global American wars without end. Barack Obama has not altered the Bush war on terror paradigm, he has reinforced it.

Fake Mexico Hijacking by Bolivian Jew

I wouldn’t have stumbled across this one if it weren’t for the interesting headline.

I also know from experience that the people set up to pull off these crazy hoaxes are usually fed tons of psychotropic and recreational drugs before hand by a jewish doctor and drug dealers somewhere, and it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this headline. One clue is that nobody else seems to hijack aircraft. That’s just plain suicide, and I don’t care what you’ve heard about “hajis”, most people just don’t do stupid shit like this.

Obama hypocrisy: continuing American fascism with unlimited detention

Almost a year after Mr. Obama's election as President, with the sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, his administration continues the unconstitutional policies of declaring human beings as "enemies" and detaining them without rights for as long as they so dictate (as in dictatorship). As a teacher for US Government classes, I can tell you that this is un-American in every academic understanding of what Americanism means. We have other words to describe a political philosophy of unlimited government that rejects inalienable civil and political rights: dictatorship and fascism are academically correct.

A sea of protesters filled the west lawn of the Capitol and spilled onto the National Mall on Saturday in the largest rally against President Obama since he took office, a culmination of a summer-long season of protests that began with opposition to a health care overhaul and grew into a broader dissatisfaction with government.

You see, long ago, in another pointless war, promoted by another conscienceless Secretary, I too was a Marine Lance Corporal of twenty-one years. I too got shot, though not nearly as badly as this kid, and spent a year at Bethesda Naval Hospital. At this point I am legally blind following my (I think) thirteenth trip to eye surgery as a result of an identical foreign policy.

Photographs are death to a war, boys and girls. They can asphyxiate a war faster than roadside bombs can even dream. Gates does not want the sprawling somnolent inattentive beast, the public, to see what his wars really are.

9/11: Support our troops by ending these illegal wars

Do you respect our troops? If so, demand their return home because they’ve been deployed in illegal Wars of Aggression. Don’t believe me when I say the wars are illegal and we should withdraw (Iraq and Afghanistan can request help from the UN on their own if they’re interested). YOU have to know the two simple rules of starting a war to determine if our troops’ presence is ethical or not. Do you know them? If so, thank you for your responsibility as a citizen. If not, thank you for reading this article to learn! As an educator, allow me to attempt my art of admonishing those who haven’t done this important homework before reviewing the answer (and I thought being a laid-off teacher I wouldn’t use this particular skill as a writer).

Senate panel OKs $636 billion Pentagon budget with $128 billion for Iraq, Afghanistan wars

With hardly any debate, a powerful Senate committee Thursday approved President Barack Obama's $128 billion request for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for the budget year beginning in October.

Senate panel chairman Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, would not say whether he believes $128 billion would be enough for military operations in the two countries.

"Well, we're taking the word of the administration," Inouye said after the panel session.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While Americans slip deeper into poverty, and homeless Vets sleep in our streets, more and more of our taxpayer dollars are being committed to these insane wars without end.

We only have one party in this country, and that's the War Party, which controls both houses of congress, and have for some time.

And wars are great... if you're a defense contractor, or a senator or congressional representative who has been "acquired" by a major defense contractor or two, through overt and covert campaign contributions.

People behind 9/11 plotting another attack: Mullen

"The people behind the 9/11 attacks are planning and plotting other attacks. Qaida and its extremist allies would like nothing better than to strike us again," Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen said at a September 11th Commemoration Ceremony at the Pentagon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Admiral Mullen: thinking Americans understand that this government would love nothing better than to pull off another stunning false flag, to cow the American people into stunned submission and meekly accept whatever government agenda would be served by such an event.

However, as rapidly as 9/11 came apart from the standpoint of the sheer force of logic which showed that the official story couldn't possibly be true, one would hope that those elements in government would love to give this another try, will not be allowed to do it (as was the case with Operation Northwoods).

Food Aid Grows in California's Agricultural Heart
SEPTEMBER 2, 2009 By JIM CARLTON
SELMA, Calif. -- The combined punch of drought, water restrictions and recession has created an ironic situation in California's Central Valley: Officials are handing out tons of food in the heart of one of the nation's most productive agricultural regions.
"We either have money for gas and medicine, or food -- not both," Helen Hernandez,
"There's never been this kind of need in the Central Valley, ever," said Dana Wilkie, chief executive of the Fresno food bank. "In some communities, we're serving 80% of the residents."

The New Great Game is not only focused on the face-off between the United States and strategic competitors Russia and China - with Pipelineistan as a defining element.

The full spectrum dominance doctrine requires the control of the Pentagon-coined "arc of instability" from the Horn of Africa to western China. The cover story is the former "global war on terror", now "overseas contingency operations" under the management of President Barack Obama's administration.

Are US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan well-intended mistakes? What we now know from the evidence

If there was credible evidence of imminent threat to US national security, then the wars were justified under the UN Charter for self-defense. However, if the evidence was not credible, or fabricated, then these wars are illegal Wars of Aggression. So which is it?

Americans and the world no longer need BELIEVE anything; the specific evidence used to justify invading two countries is now public knowledge. All we have to do is match the government's claims to the exact evidence and you can decide for yourself. This article lays it out.

Are the Days of Drudge Over?

For some, including the White House, the Drudge Report is still an online media powerhouse. The Drudge Report is No. 115 in Quantcast’s list of most popular sites, ranking higher than washingtonpost.com, nypost.com and politico.com. That’s 1.1 million visitors every day, each of whom refresh the page about 15 times in a 24-hour period, according to Quantcast.

But, contrary to what some might think, fewer and fewer of those visitors seem to be the journalists that were once so captivated by Matt Drudge—not to mention his vaguely terror-inducing headlines, taste for the obscure and occasionally spinning siren light.

US Girl Scouts prepare for war, pestilence

The United States wants to enlist its 3.4 million Girl Scouts in the effort to combat hurricanes, pandemics, terror attacks and other disasters.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launched a campaign Tuesday to entice the blue, brown and green-clad multitudes to be even more prepared, with the promise of a new patch if they pitch in.

It is not the first time the girl guides have been called into action in defense of the homeland.

Militarising Space: The Fallujah fallacy

All this makes perfect, if horrible, sense. The US empire is on the march and the Pentagon learned the perils of the draft from the massive public protests it provoked during the Vietnam war. It already operates on a global electronic battlefield where the fighting is increasingly done by robot drones guided by surveillance systems, the idea being to minimise US casualties. This was what Rumsfeld had in mind when he thought he could conquer Iraq and Afghanistan with a handful of troops on the ground. Even so, there is a lack of drafted cannon fodder, so in addition to robots, foreign nationals are offered immediate US citizenship if they sign up, and mercenaries (aka private contractors) -- US and foreign -- are employed to help fight on the ground.

Armed Revolution! Are you “in or out”?

Never in our country’s history have Americans witnessed the travesty of such an anti-constitutional administration and congress. And a great deal of the responsibility falls on both major political parties and the media. However, there are others, including American voters who refuse to intelligently discuss the issues and critically analyze what the administration is doing. As a result, the likelihood of another civil war or second revolution increases with each passing day and each new power-grab by the Obama administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to avoid violence, but acknowledge that it may be unavoidable. The Government needs a violent event it can blame on the people to move to the next stage of repression, so no doubt a fake domestic terrorist act is in the planning stages.

Why are John Ashcroft and John Yoo being sued in civil court?

John Ashcroft was Attorney General of the United States from 2001 to 2005. John Yoo was the author of legal opinions for the White House and Mr. Ashcroft in his work for the Office of Legal Counsel from 2001 to 2003. Both are being sued in civil courts for damages from their actions as key executive branch officials charged with law enforcement and applying the US Constitution. The ruling courts have so far recognized these lawsuits as valid.

Why are such high government officials being sued?

For gross violation of Constitutional rights and torture.

In the wake of the Afghan Election: NATO Intensifies Military Deployments, Carnage

Ending the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan may not at all be what the U.S. and NATO plan.

Russian analyst Andrei Konurov wrote on September 3 that Washington and Brussels have far broader geostrategic objectives in South and Central Asia, throughout Eurasia and ultimately the world, to abandon the positions that the war in South Asia has provided them.

In particular he observed that "The US has deployed 19 military bases in Afghanistan and Central Asian countries since the war began in October, 2001.

The portents for the writer's own nation, he details, are ominous.

"As for Russia, this is a manifestation of a long-term US geopolitical strategy aimed at separating Russia from seas and locking it up in the Eurasian inland.

Obama appoints Homosexual Propagandist to Education

By Steve Baldwin, WesternJournalism.com Exclusive

In a stunning move, President Barack Obama has nominated homosexual propagandist Kevin Jennings to be the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Education in charge of the “Safe and Drug-Free Schools” program.
Who is Jennings? He’s the founder and, until recently, the President of the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN), the nation’s leading homosexual pressure group working to insert homosexual propaganda into America’s public schools. GLSEN’s budget is in the millions and they are the driving force behind the formation of over 4000 homosexual clubs on our colleges, high schools and even middle schools. Most of these clubs were formed by homosexual faculty members trained by GLSEN.

Good news for harried travellers who resent having to remove their shoes at airport-security checkpoints: now you can just say no.

Canada's airport security agency has issued a bulletin to front-line officers instructing them they cannot require domestic or international passengers to doff footwear before walking through metal detectors.

"Never suggest, ask or demand that passengers remove footwear prior to entering the WTMD (walk-through metal detector)," says the one-page directive, issued in April.

"This bulletin is effective immediately."

Maximizing employment: the ONLY policy proposal for full success

One of the goals of the Federal Reserve is to maximize employment. The maximum employment is all adults seeking a job having a job. Let's consider policy to achieve full-employment with the assumption that we really do honor labor and want every American adult seeking work to be successful in both the short-term and long-term. When the free-market economy cannot achieve an economic goal, economists call that a market failure. Free-markets will never achieve the economic goal of full employment; they never have. Given that obvious history, the intelligent policy response is to have a back-up plan, an employer of last resort. It's obvious that when your primary strategy has never ahcieved a goal that you MUST develop a back-up plan, yes?
