The Afghanistan Files and the Poison of Lies

By Gerd Appenzeller
Indiscretions like those currently from WikiLeaks and the newspapers that reprinted portions of the text therefore have but one goal in mind: to make the truth known.

From Vietnam to Afghanistan: You can’t wage war against the truth. And you shouldn’t, because it’s not truth that’s endangering national security.

Shirley Sherrod, Quit While You're Ahead
By Larry Elder
But what about the rest of Shirley Sherrod's NAACP speech?
She made this observation about those who opposed ObamaCare: "I haven't seen such mean-spirited people as I've seen lately over this issue of health care. Some of the racism we thought was buried. Didn't it surface? (Audience responds approvingly.) Now, we endured eight years of the Bushes, and we didn't do the stuff these Republicans are doing because you have a black president."
So the self-proclaimed colorblind woman attributes legitimate opposition to the government takeover of health care ... to racism.

Obama to make $85 million from BP disaster

Obama to make $85 million from BP disaster
Submitted by admin on June 18, 2010 – 8:00
But according to this FSB report the largest seller of BP stock in the weeks before this disaster occurred was the American investment company known as Vanguard who through two of their financial arms (Vanguard Windsor II Investor and Vanguard Windsor Investor) unloaded over 1.5 million shares of BP stock saving their investors hundreds of millions of dollars, chief among them President Obama.
For though little known by the American people, their President Obama holds all of his wealth in just two Vanguard funds, ...which the FSB estimates will earn Obama nearly $8.5 million a year and which over 10 years will equal the staggering sum of $85 million.

Assange's MSM pals: How the papers got the leaks

How the papers got the leaks
July 28, 2010
Davies contacted people close to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and found out he was scheduled to speak before European parliament on June 21. Davies met with Assange and said he would offer a team of researchers to identify stories in the documents.
On June 22, during a six-hour coffee-soaked meeting in a Brussels café, Davies says Assange suggested another idea — that The Guardian and The New York Times be given an advance look at some information the site had on the Afghanistan war, with each paper publishing its own take on the documents. Within the next 24 rs, Davies says Assange told him Der Spiegel should be included as well.

After being caught in another lie, Toronto cops admit to using rubber bullets on G20 protesters

If it wasn't bad enough that the Toronto police lied to the public about a new 'security law' - passed down by the Government of Ontario - giving them new policing powers during the G20 Summit only to have to later admit that no such law ever existed.

Now, Toronto police are backtracking on another statement they made claiming that rubber bullets were not fired into the crowd outside the Eastern Avenue Detention Centre on Sunday June 27, 2010.

Ashurst: Criminal cartel border warfare allowed by the US Feds

Ashurst: A Border Manifesto
You could ask, “So what does this have to do with us living north of the border fence?” Plenty! The situation on the border isn’t just about a few workers walking north. It has everything to do with big business. Billions of dollars are being made trafficking humans, drugs, and contraband across the International Boundary. The Sinaloa Cartel, headed by Chapo Guzman and others, is reaping huge profits doing business along the border. The average coyote charges $1500 - $2500 to guide an illegal alien north to find work; usually abandoning them a short distance north of the line. A young man willing to pack dope north can make more than a construction worker or a teacher in the U.S. and only work a day or two a week.

Disputed chemical bisphenol-A found in paper receipts

By Lyndsey Layton

As lawmakers and health experts wrestle over whether a controversial chemical, bisphenol-A, should be banned from food and beverage containers, a new analysis by an environmental group suggests Americans are being exposed to BPA through another, surprising route: paper receipts.

The Environmental Working Group found BPA on 40 percent of the receipts it collected from supermarkets, automated teller machines, gas stations and chain stores. In some cases, the total amount of BPA on the receipt was 1,000 times the amount found in the epoxy lining of a can of food, another controversial use of the chemical.

Oil spewing from well near Louisiana marsh

Adding insult to the Gulf's injury, an oil platform hit by a tugboat early Tuesday is now spewing oil and natural gas near a Louisiana marsh area. Boom placed around 100-foot-high plume; tugboat hit well, officials say. While there was no estimate of how much oil was gushing, officials said the mile-long slick it created was small compared with the Gulf spill. The oil and gas is shooting up 100 feet into the air, officials said, as a private contractor was called in to try to cap the well. While small in size, the spill weighed heavy on locals. "We cannot catch a break," Deano Bonano, Jefferson Parish emergency management director, said in a note to parish officials.

The TSA’s Port-o-Porns: Ogling You Everywhere, Not Just at Airports

Ergo, we might suppose that when the agency finishes converting airports into porn palaces, it will enjoy enough involuntary strippers to glut even its most demanding degenerates.

Alas, no.

Catch this bombshell at Government Security News’ website: "…the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)" – among whose bureaucracies the TSA lurks – "is now interested in acquiring portable versions of [whole-body scanners], which could be transported anywhere to quickly establish ‘high throughput security checkpoints.’" Emphasis despairingly added.

WikiLeaks - What Leaks?

Uh-O. Lookee here....Wikileaks 'reveal' that Bin Laden was being tracked through Pakistan:

"In August 2006, a US intelligence report placed Bin Laden at a meeting in Quetta, over the border in Pakistan. It said he and others - including the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar - were organising suicide attacks in Afghanistan."

So there it is. That evil fiend, Bin Laden, is not dead (as most people who follow the information believe). He is alive and well and organising Al Qaeda, or is it the Taliban, to carry out suicide bombings against our boys in Afghanistan.

Well, now we know.

Don't we?

Time for the Palestinians to call Israel’s bluff?

Could it be that a most explicit Palestinian calling of Israel’s bluff would create the understanding needed in America to free up President Obama (after the mid-term elections in November, of course) to take on and defeat the Zionist lobby, for the sake of peace in the Middle East and best protecting America’s own real interests in the region and the wider Muslim world?

The Establishment Protection Act

We call this legislation the Establishment Protection Act because that is exactly what it is intended to do. Politicians will do anything they can to avoid being held accountable to their constituents for their actions during the legislative season. Any organization that challenges the status quo will come under greater scrutiny than those that endorse the status quo—and that will make donors to such groups targets for harassment and intimidation.

It’s time to take this slur of anti-Semitism and say it’s a badge of honor and say that at least you’re not a slave to their obvious lies and only a fool or a coward cares what anyone calls them, when you can prove the truth that you don’t care what they pretend they are, you just care about what they do …and that they are not Semitic anyway that the Palestinians are the original inhabitants of the land and that the DNA tests prove it so call me what you like and that power is on the way to being turned against them and nail them on what is provably true and write and sing and say it, because what use is your life anyway, if you live in subjugation to them? Is it going to improve for you? Is that their intention? That’s not what they do.

Jailhouse Letter from Ed Steele Explains How He Was Framed

After being held incommunicado for nearly a month, Idaho attorney Edgar Steele was finally able to get a letter out of the Spokane County Jail, where he is being held on shaky federal charges of “murder for hire.” He maintains that a confidential informant (CI) in the feds’ employ lied to the authorities regarding the alleged plot in order to cover up the theft of tens of thousands of dollars in silver coins the CI had stolen from Steele sometime earlier.

In addition to being an outspoken foe of the Israeli state and the Anti-Defamation League, Steele has spent the last half of his law career defending—often pro bono—the politically incorrect and especially those charged with “hate crimes,” thereby creating a case history that evidently has made him a federal target...

Chas Freeman – Nixon Center debate, “Israel; Asset or Liability?”

Is Israel a strategic asset or liability for the United States?

Interesting question. We must thank the Nixon Center for asking it. In my view, there are many reasons for Americans to wish the Jewish state well. Under current circumstances, strategic advantage for the United States is not one of them. If we were to reverse the question, however, and to ask whether the United States is a strategic asset or liability for Israel, there would be no doubt about the answer.

WIKILEAKS/WIKIPEDIA: TRUTH serving LIES (with CIA/MOSSAD oversight)

"All this 'whistleblowing' does little other than serve the interests of the US possibly expanding their war... We know that the powers-that-be are determined to control both sides of every argument. They lead the opposition against themselves. That's why "Stop The War" will not even MENTION 9/11 Truth and exclude from the ranks of their leadership anyone who wants to raise reasonable questions about the events of 9/11...

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is 'annoyed' by 9/11 truth. That there IN ITSELF makes him, to any sensible person, a placeman of the security services."

High levels of benzene, health hazard in Michigan now

Chemical benzene could post health hazard for humans and wildlife alike in Kalamazoo River oil spill
Updated: Tuesday, July 27, 2010, 4:52 PM
Kathy Jessup | Kalamazoo Gazette
LANSING — State environmental experts are advising the public to stay clear of a 15-miles stretch of the Kalamazoo River contaminated by 840,000 gallons of crude oil from a ruptured pipeline Monday near Marshall.
Officials said Tuesday that high levels of benzene, a potentially harmful chemical released from the oil, could pose a health hazard to humans who come in contact with the water or breath in the fumes.
Wildlife experts also are warning the public not to handle wildlife coated with the oil, saying improper treatment could be harmful to the animals and humans.

The Roman Empire lasted for centuries. The American one collapsed overnight.

Rome’s corruption became the strength of her enemies, and the Western Empire was overrun.

America’s collapse occurred when government ceased to represent the people and became the instrument of a private oligarchy. Decisions were made in behalf of short-term profits for the few at the expense of unmanageable liabilities for the many. Overwhelmed by liabilities, the government collapsed.

Police Release Rabbi Arrested for Inciting to Kill Non-Jews

Killing the children of a leader in order to pressure him, the rabbi continues, is also permissible. In general, according to the book, it is okay to kill children if they “stand in the way – children are often doing this.” “ There is justification in harming infants if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us. Under such circumstances the blow can be directed at them and not only by targeting adults.”

Oath Breakers and the Age of Treason

It will require mass civil disobedience in America, and the threat of nation-wide citizen revolt, to get rid of the tyrants and traitors that are in the highest levels of the country's government, banks, media, and corporations. To organize such a resistance not just in America, but in all Western nations, means dropping the labels of "conservative" and "liberal," ignoring petty ideological differences, and sacrificing our individual egos for the greater good - a free country, and a free world.

Massive deadly Gulf poisoning warrants evacuations

Experts: Health Hazards in Gulf Warrant Evacuations
Thursday 22 July 2010
by: Rose Aguilar, t r u t h o u t | Report
When Louisiana residents ask marine toxicologist and community activist Riki Ott what she would do if she lived in the Gulf with children, she tells them she would leave immediately. "It's that bad. We need to start talking about who's going to pay for evacuations."
Kaufman and Ott both say the media need to follow the money. The reason why the EPA is covering this up, they say, is because the cost to BP would be astronomical. "The dispersants hide the oil," said Ott. "If you put dispersants in the water, you don't know how much oil was really spilled. Oil fines are based on how much oil was spilled, so it's all about money.""

The Canadian military reported at the time that the four soldiers died in battles with Taliban forces.

Haters Go After the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’

Nothing illustrates the utter craziness of our society in the post-9/11 era than the controversy over the "Ground Zero mosque." To begin with, the proposed Islamic center – not a mosque, but the Muslim equivalent of the YMCA – a nonprofit foundation wants to build in New York City isn’t at "ground zero," it is four blocks from the site of the World Trade Center. But that doesn’t deter demagogues like Newt Gingrich and various other unsavory opportunists from making it into a political issue.

They asked the women what they thought of him and the result was disgust... absolutely nothing positive about the "poor guy".

Then they went and gave him a make-over. They bought him a nice suit, new shoes, gave him a nice haircut, bought a nice watch and finally, they had him drive up in a Bentley and he got out next to these SAME WOMEN.

They then asked these women what they thought of him. And these same women, not recognising the same man, were now full of utter praise for him!

U.S. withdraws ‘pain ray’ from Afghan war zone

A ‘pain ray’ that blasts the enemy with unbearable heat waves has been pulled out of Afghanistan by the US military.

The Active Denial System (ADS), which cost about £42?million to develop, was on the brink of being deployed to disperse members of the Taliban as they attacked US forces.

The weapon, which causes immense pain to subjects but no lasting physical damage, was pulled from the war zone last week but US army chiefs in Afghanistan have stayed silent about the reason for the U-turn.

If this weapon has been pulled from Afghanistan, one has to wonder just where the US government is planning to deploy it next.

BP OIL MASTERS AND THE ART OF MASTERFUL DECEPTION
By Fahim A. Knight-El
This is what most Americans do not understand, BP functions as a sovereign government, it translate to mean that big oil answers to no one, but to their invisible Dynastic family bosses. The United States Congress and President Obama are deceptively giving the American people the impression that BP is answerable to the laws, rules, regulations and enactments of the United States Government (this is the furthest thing from the truth). BP makes the damn rules and their invisible tycoons are all sovereign and above all nations jurisprudence systems, what part of that doesn’t you understand?

Israel Hiding Behind The “Iranian Threat”

By Steven Zhou — “The Canadian Charger“

With the recent formation of The Emergency Committee for Israel, the neoconservative and Likudnik characters on the American right have stepped up their anti-Iranian lobbying efforts. Among other things, they have again brought up how a nuclear Iran would pose an “imminent threat” that would tear the region apart.

This renewed exaggeration of an Iranian threat to Israel comes at a time when Israel is clearly being shown to be a strategic liability to the U.S., a fact the Israel Lobby has so far concealed with great success.

The arrogance of American power

Paul J. Balles argues that the continued presence of 1,000 American military bases outside the USA nearly two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union is a symptom of the arrogance of power that threatens local communities and ultimately the USA itself.

”What is America doing in Iraq and Afghanistan? It’s called 'nation building'. What business is it of America to be building other’s nations? It's really none of their business. It's nothing more than the arrogance of power.”

Feds/BP Covering Up Lethality/Dispersal depth Of Corexit

EPA Whistleblower Says Federal Government Covering Up Lethality Of Corexit And Lying About BP Gulf Oil Spill Water Samples To Save BP Billions
Alexander Higgins - July 24, 2010 at 5:29 pm
HUGH KAUFMAN: Well, not only do you have airplanes flying and dropping them on the Gulf region, like Agent Orange in Vietnam, but a large amount of it is being shot into the water column at 5,000 feet to disperse the oil as it gushers out. And so, you have spread, according to the Associated Press, over perhaps over 44,000 square miles, an oil and dispersant mix. And what’s happened is, that makes it impossible to skim the oil out of the water....

Cops Charge Irish Government With Treason

When a national police association accuses its government of what amounts to treason it is time to sit up and pay attention.

Michael O'Boyce, President of the Garda Representative Association (GRA), said at its annual conference in Limerick, at the end of April, 2010, that the Irish Government had been 'corrupted' and had been 'bought' by developers and bankers. (A garda is an Irish policeman, gardaí in the plural.)

Mr. O'Boyce, speaking on behalf of the country's 11,000 gardaí, charged government ministers with sacrificing the country to protect 'wealthy cronies' who had bankrolled the leading government party, Fianna Fáil. Such criticism of a serving government by its police force is unprecedented in Irish history and extremely rare in any western democracy.

How to create your very own terrorist state

Tim Coles takes us through 11 steps necessary to create a “terrorist state”. Using Yemen as a case study, he argues that these steps precisely match US and British policies in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran as well as Yemen to grow “very poisonous seeds”, some which have ripened while others are ripening.

This Time We Went Too Far: review of Norman Finkelstein’s book on Israel’s Gaza blitzkrieg

Stuart Littlewood reviews Norman Finkelstein’s book, This Time We Went Too Far, which “pulls together the facts surrounding Israel's blitzkrieg on Gaza” and “plots the long lead-up and the reverberating aftermath”. Painstakingly researched and written in an easy-flowing style, it is “a valuable working document for anyone engaged in the struggle or just wishing to learn the truth”.

Archbishop: Theodosios Atallah Hanna: The Israeli occupation is the result of a promise given to the Israelis by Lord Balfour and not by God.”

Elias Harb: Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor Eli Wiesel has claimed in varies publications that Jews, Christians and Muslims are able to build their homes anywhere in Jerusalem and that only under Israeli sovereignty had freedom of worship for all religions been assured in the city. How do you respond to that?

Archbishop Theodosios: The facts on the ground say exactly the opposite, more and more Muslims and Christians are having great difficulties in entering the city. We see thousands are denied the entry to their holiest sites.

New jets (F35s) look like a bad bargain (for Canadian Forces)

The Times Colonist provided the following comparison figures:

The CF-18s currently in use have a top speed of Mach 1.8, range of 3,700 kilometres and 138 planes are available. They cost $29 million each.

The F35s have a lower top speed, at Mach 1.67, reduced range at 2,200 kilometres and 65 planes will -- maybe -- be available for use in six years. They will cost $139 million each.

It appears we are paying five times as much for a machine with poorer performance and, at the same time, cutting the size of our fleet by 50 per cent.

Hizbullah Possible Culprit in Juarez Car Bomb

A car bomb that exploded July 15 in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, may indicate that Mexican drug cartels are being assisted by Hizbullah terrorists. This possibility means that the U.S. may be faced with a Muslim terror threat south of its border that is not completely unlike the terror presence Israel deals with on its southern and northern borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Car bombs are certainly not the exclusive provenance of Hezbullah: Israel has used cell phone detonated care bombs for extrajudicial assassinations.

As reported at:

www.seeingisbelieving.ca/cell/Israel/

"Israel has also made use of cell phone technology in its campaign against Palestinian militants. Israel's internal security service is alleged to have assassinated Palestinian bomb-maker Yahya Ayyash, aka "The Engineer", with an exploding cell phone in 1996."

This article offers utterly nothing which could be construed as hard evidence for such a link.

Notice the feeble use of language throughout this piece, attempting to create linkages where none can be proven.

One has to wonder if this article has been placed to set up an enviornment in which some kind of "false flag" attack will take place here in the US, blamed on Hezbullah, and off we go against Iran.

Bill Kristol’s ‘Emergency Committee?’ Give me a break

By Stephen M. Walt – Foreign Policy

Via Ben Smith at Politico, we learn that the usual suspects have started yet another organization whose objective is to promote a hard-right, Likudnik agenda in the Middle East. The new group apparently intends to go after anyone who thinks U.S. Middle East policy has been less than totally successful in recent years, and who is willing to think for themselves (and U.S. interests), instead of reflexively echoing the positions favored by AIPAC and other groups in the “status quo” lobby.

Senate Rejects War Bill, Puts House on the Spot

The move will delay final approval of the bill yet again, until the House meets once again to vote on the bill. In the meantime the Pentagon is complaining that their war accounts are “drying up” as the costs of the endless war in Afghanistan continues to spiral.

It is widely expected that the House will, in the end, approve the funds for the war, but it will likely come with another series of debates, and it is so far unclear when the House will take the issue up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One more cent on these immoral, illegal wars without end, is one cent too many.

The only way the Vietnam war finally came to a conclusion was that Congress ultimately defunding it.

Handcuffed to history in South Asia

by Aijaz Zaka Syed

I sometimes wonder if Shakespeare had India and Pakistan’s leaders in mind when he wrote those immortal lines in As You Like It: “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts.”

No matter who is in power in Delhi or Islamabad, the script of the carefully choreographed diplomatic spectacle never seems to change. From their famous encounter at Tashkent to the tense handshakes at Simla and Agra, and from Vajpayee’s historic bus trip to Lahore to the bitterness of Kargil, the more the narrative changes, the more it remains the same.

USDA Vilsack/Obama/DOJ shaft black farmers in lawsuit

Vilsack Must Keep Black Farmers on their Land
By Cynthia McKinney
July 22, 2010
"Unfortunately however, Secretary Vilsack has also thrown Black Farmers under the bus. To date, despite abundant headlines to the contrary, Black Farmers, including the named plaintiffs in Pigford v. Glickman (1997), Lucious Abrams and Cecil Brewington have not even had a meeting with USDA, to settle their discrimination claim. Others who did receive settlements were then harassed by the Internal Revenue Service and had their bank accounts frozen and their Social Security payments offset by any government payments, including stimulus payments.
"Claimants got paid, but actual farmers did not.

‘Governments Are Not Going to Change This. We Have To’: Antony Loewenstein on Israel/Palestine, the Internet and more

By Alex Kane — Desertpeace

With “peace talks” between the Palestinian Authority and Israel seeming more and more like a dead end, many people around the world, including dissident Jewish voices, are turning to grassroots activism to pressure Israel to end the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories.

Recently, Jewish Voice for Peace launched a campaign to pressure TIAA-CREF, one of the largest financial services in the U.S., to divest from companies that profit off of the Israeli occupation. Yesterday, the Olympia Food Co-Op, located in the hometown of Rachel Corrie, the American peace activist killed by an Israeli bulldozer, announced a decision to boycott Israeli goods at their two locations.

Some insurers stop writing new coverage for kids

ome major health insurance companies will no longer issue certain types of policies for children, an unintended consequence of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law, state officials said Friday.

Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty said several big insurers in his state will stop issuing new policies that cover children individually. Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland said a couple of local insurers in her state are doing likewise.

Parishes try to stop Coast Guard from moving protections

Parishes try to stop Coast Guard from moving protections
Friday, July 23, 2010 10:40 AM CDT
SLIDELL (AP) — Simmering distrust on the oil-coated Louisiana coast boiled over Thursday as local officials in coastal parishes mounted an effort to stop the Coast Guard from moving protective boom and other oil spill response equipment out of the way of Tropical Storm Bonnie.
"Nungesser said the parishes feared that if the boom was removed it would not be sent back."
"‘‘The Coast Guard has not stood up and made BP do anything unless we rant and rave,’’ said Nungesser, a frequent critic of the response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico."
"Nungesser called the boom movement ‘‘a failed attempt by the Coast Guard to help BP smuggle assets out of here unnoticed.”"

Stars reveal carbon 'spaceballs'

Scientists have detected the largest molecules ever seen in space, in a cloud of cosmic dust surrounding a distant star.

The football-shaped carbon molecules are known as buckyballs, and were only discovered on Earth 25 years ago when they were made in a laboratory.

These molecules are the "third type of carbon" - with the first two types being graphite and diamond.

Buckyballs consist of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a sphere. The atoms are linked together in alternating patterns of hexagons and pentagons that, on the molecular scale, look exactly like a football.
