Fox “news” continues CBS, ABC, CNN propaganda to attack Iran: today’s CIA Operation Mockingbird

*hyperlinks and videos live at source*

In the video clip from Fox below, Bill Kristol advocates US military attack on Iran because he predicts that Israel will attack Iran. This is propaganda for an unlawful war for the following “emperor has no clothes” obvious reasons. Fox "reporting" is also a manipulative variation of the same war drone I’ve documented from CBS, ABC, and CNN.

Judge dismisses scores of Guantanamo habeas cases

A federal judge has dismissed more than 100 habeas corpus lawsuits filed by former Guantanamo captives, ruling that because the Bush and Obama administrations had transferred them elsewhere, the courts need not decide whether the Pentagon imprisoned them illegally.

Hogan's ruling, issued last Thursday, but not widely publicized, closed the files on 105 habeas corpus petitions, many of which had been pending for years as the Bush administration resisted the right of civilian judges to intervene in military detentions. The U.S. Supreme Court resolved that issue in 2008, ruling in Boumediene v. Bush that the detainees could challenge their captivity in civilian court.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope this decision gets appealed.

Many of the people who wound up at Gitmo were either at the most absolutely wrong place at the worst possible time, or got turned in for a bounty by local people eager for the cash that the US was handing out like candy to find "alleged terrorists."

We're From the Government; We're Here to "Help" You to Death

Any day that begins with the arrival of armed strangers on one's doorstep is going to end badly. Despite her afflictions, Stuckey was lucid enough to understand that principle, and she did the entirely rational thing: She bluntly invited the police to direct their unwanted attention elsewhere. Since she wasn't suspected of a crime, that should have ended the matter.

But the police weren't investigating a crime. They were carrying out a much more dangerous function: They were there to "help" Stuckey, whether or not this would be appropriate, and her desires were irrelevant to the matter.

Rachel Maddow, McCarthyite The FBI, the left, and the war on "extremism" by Justin Raimondo

In good times, the fear is somewhat subtle: discontent, albeit ever-present, is masked by prosperity and contained; in bad times, the fear overflows into the everyday life of the citizenry, which is viewed with the utmost suspicion by the ruling elite. In Washington, they’re wondering: how long will they put up with it?

Today, the answer to that question is: not much longer....

Canadian dollar hits parity vs. U.S. dollar

The Canadian dollar rose to one-for-one footing with the U.S. currency on Tuesday, hitting its strongest level since July 2008, boosted by rising commodity prices and expectations for higher domestic interest rates.

At 7:38 a.m. (1138 GMT), the Canadian dollar was at C$1.0008, or 99.92 U.S. cents. Earlier, the currency rose to C$0.9999 to the U.S. dollar or $1.0001.

The Canadian Air Farce (comedy program here in Canada) did a hilarious skit on this situation. It took place in a "dollar store" everything was a dollar. And next week's special was $1 US and 1 US dime for $1 Canadian.

Record $16M fine levelled against Toyota over slow recalls, allegedly hiding 'dangerous defect'

The U.S. government accused Toyota of hiding a "dangerous defect" and proposed a record US$16.4-million fine on Monday for failing to quickly alert regulators to safety problems in gas pedals on popular models such as the Camry and Corolla. The proposed fine, announced Monday by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, is the most the government could levy for the sticking gas pedals that have led Toyota to recall millions of vehicles. There could be further penalties under continuing federal investigations. The Japanese automaker faces private lawsuits seeking many millions more.

Toyota Motor Corp. has recalled more than six million vehicles in the U.S., and more than eight million worldwide, because of acceleration problems in multiple models and braking issues in the Prius hybrid.

ABC escalates Iran war propaganda: parrots CIA dubious claim of “defected” Iranian scientist

*hyperlinks and ABC video live at source*

ABC News reported as fact a CIA claim from unnamed US “officials” that a young Iranian nuclear scientist reported as abducted by his wife last year had voluntarily abandoned his family in Iran to allegedly defect to the United States. ABC doesn’t question the CIA’s truthfulness of such a report or the legality for holding Shahram Amiri, despite:

his wife’s and government’s claim that the CIA captured Mr. Amri against his will,

Mr. Amiri not being allowed to speak for himself,

Utah governor signs bills to seize federal land

Salt Lake City - Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert has signed two bills authorizing the state to use eminent domain to seize some of the federal government's most valuable land.

Supporters hope the bills, which the Republican governor signed Saturday, will trigger a flood of similar legislation throughout the West and, eventually, a Supreme Court battle that they hope to win -- against long odds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Federal government will absolutely all within its power to prevent this from happening, and very possibly for the following reason: these Federally owned lands may have been seized as collateral for US debt.

As reported on 30 November, 2008 in:

http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-SCAM-behind-NAIS--Ou-by-Derry-Brownfield-081130-795.html

The SCAM behind NAIS - "Our Land: Collateral for the National Debt"

"During the first three days, the group was told that the WILDERNESS CONGRESS was about beating the ozone deterioration and bringing the rain forests back. The following days were closed to the public. With only the bankers in attendance, the topics discussed centered on the creation of a "WORLD CONSERVATION BANK" with collateral being derived from receipt of wilderness properties throughout the world. This bank would have central bank powers similar to the Federal Reserve. It would create currency and loans and engage in international discounting, counter-trade, barter and swap actions. Rothschild personally conducted the monetary matters and the creation of this WORLD CONSERVATION BANK. This bank would refinance by swapping debt for assets. A country with a huge national debt would receive money to pay off the debt by swapping the debt for wilderness lands.

The plan was to swap one trillion dollars of Third World Debt into this new bank. In the long term, when the countries won't be able to pay off the loans, governments from around the world will give title to their wilderness lands to the bankers."

Taken a look at the US deficit clock lately? This country is nasty-broke. The national debt as of today is $12.7 trillion dollars, with a T.

GM to expand brake override systems to most vehicles

General Motors said on Monday it will install brake override systems on nearly all of its vehicles by 2012 in a move aimed at boosting its safety credentials in the wake of mass recalls at rival Toyota.

Toyota has been expanding the use of brake override systems to calm fears after it recalled more than eight million vehicles worldwide due to defects which caused vehicles to speed uncontrollably.

Shares of Apple were nearly unchanged in early trading after the stock last week repeatedly hit record highs in anticipation of the iPad's launch on Saturday.

The company said first-day sales included deliveries of preordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple Retail Stores.

New report finds drug prohibition, stricter law enforcement key sources of violence and gun crime

Canada’s war on drugs has failed to curb the illicit drug trade, and proposed legal interventions to disrupt the drug market will have no effect on drug supply and may actually boost rates of drug-related violence, according to a new scientific review. [...] Researchers at the Urban Health Research Initiative [...] conducted a systematic review of all available English-language scientific literature to examine the impacts of drug law enforcement on drug market violence. [... and] identified 15 international studies examining the impact of drug law enforcement on violence. Contrary to the prevailing belief that drug law enforcement reduces violence, 87% of the studies (13 studies) observed that drug law enforcement was associated with increasing levels of drug market violence.

Israel and the “delegitimization” oxymoron

Alan Hart argues that in law the foundations upon which Israel claims legitimacy do not actually exist and that “only the Palestinians could give it the legitimacy it craved”.

Easter Mass a bit of papal pep rally; Benedict ignores calls he take scandal responsibility

Easter Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square, the Catholic church's most joyous celebration, began with a senior cardinal defending Pope Benedict XVI from what he called "petty gossip" and hailing him for "unfailing" leadership and courage.

But the pontiff himself ignored accusations that he perpetuated a climate of cover up for pedophile priests, even as sex abuse scandals threatened to overshadow his papacy.

Based on the history of lies preceding the unlawful US armed attack and invasion of Iraq (explained verbally here), Americans have little time to stop a lie-based US armed attack of Iran. Official US policy allows first-strike use of nuclear weapons based upon these lies.

CBS printed obvious lies of President Obama that are fully refuted by all International Atomic Energy Agency reports that ALL of Iran’s nuclear material is fully accountable for peaceful and legal use for energy and medical isotopes. Mr. Obama’s lies are also fully refuted by the current unanimous agreement of all 16 US intelligence agencies published in their current National Intelligence Estimate (NIE).

Mongolia, however remote it is and previously inaccessible it may have been, is no exception to the wave of worldwide U.S. military expansion.

NATO now has a military partner squeezed between Russia and China.

With its vast expanse (over 600,000 square miles) and its sparse population (less than 3 million people with almost 40 percent living in the capital), Mongolia is the optimal location for U.S. military surveillance (ground, air and satellite) to monitor China and Russia simultaneously.

Kroger is quoted as saying that “I think it is critical that the courts hear not just from the opponents of the health care legislation, but from those states that believe it is constitutional.” He plans to ask attorney generals in other state to work with Oregon to develop a legal strategy.

Sonja Karbar reminds us that beyond Washington’s superficial admonishing of Israel over its humiliation of the Obama administration lie the unbreakable shackles that paralyse the US and prevent it from translating its words into real action to rein in the Zionist monster.

”The disconnect between words and actions might please those who want peace more than they want justice for the Palestinians, but for many the words have been done to death. By the time proximity talks morph into full negotiations, there will be no Jerusalem left to negotiate and no Palestinians left in Jerusalem. All words will then be meaningless.”

Britain and America linked to Somali pirates, Somalia still suffers

Tim Coles argues that British and US policies in Somalia, and London’s and Washington’s support for warlord Abdullahi Yusuf’s Transitional Federal Government, belie their opposition to the Somali pirates.

Tim Madden is an economist with expertise on credit and banking. Tim and I are colleagues in lobbying government for public banking, with concentration in the US for state-owned banks (and here). The structural solutions to our economic controlled demolition are obvious and simple; and explained beautifully by many of America’s brightest historical minds.

Expected Obama Administration Backing for Indonesian State Terror

The news comes ahead of Obama’s expected announcement of new military aid, falsely claiming TNI and Kopassas "no longer murder civilians." They always did and now do, according to a senior Indonesian official (unnamed for his safety), speaking out because he opposes the practice.

"TNI still practices political murder." Yet America rewards it, despite being legally bound not to and to provide Congress with relevant information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has a pathology of supporting its tinpot dictators abroad, then becoming confused when the people of those countries have had enough terror and intimidation.

New Obama Law Places ‘Soviet-Style’ Capital Controls on Americans

It’s Official – America Now Enforces Capital Controls

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer country. On March 18, with very little pomp and circumstance, president Obama passed the most recent stimulus act, the $17.5 billion Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act (H.R. 2487), brilliantly goalseeked by the administration’s millionaire cronies to abbreviate as HIRE. As it was merely the latest in an endless stream of acts destined to expand the government payroll to infinity, nobody cared about it, or actually read it.

MONSANTO CONTROLS 90% OF FUTURE SEED

.....uh-oh./

"We now believe that Monsanto has control over as much as 90 percent of (seed genetics). This level of control is almost unbelievable... The upshot of that is that it's tightening Monsanto's control, and makes it possible for them to increase their prices long term. And we've seen this happening the last five years, and the end is not in sight."

Decriminalizing pot would devastate cartels

Decriminalizing pot would devastate cartels

One step forward: California voters will get a chance in November to decide if the state should legalize marijuana. Two steps backward: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently told authorities in Mexico that the United States was looking at anything that worked to fight the drug cartels killing Mexicans daily — but responded “no” when asked if anything included legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana.

“Our President Is Deceiving the American Public”

"Well, for years now, really since we set out to go into Iraq on much the same kinds of lies in 2002 that sent us into Vietnam when I was in the Pentagon, since then, I’ve been saying to officials in the government, “Don’t do what I did. Do what I wish I had done in ’63 or ’64, before we had entered the war, before the bombs had fallen. Don’t wait, as I did, ’til we were in the war and the war was essentially unstoppable, before telling the truth about the hopelessness, understood within the government, and the impossibility—the unlikelihood of any kind of victory there. But do it now.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iraq is a basket case, and we are losing in Afghanistan.

The only question is when the "Saigon Moment" will come in the history of the US occupation of Afghanistan, and how much more blood and treasure will be spent before this illegal and immoral war has finished.

The next war we must stop before it starts is a war against Iran.

Because if this war begins, I wouldn't bet against Russia and China joining the fray in behalf of Iran; and Russia and China do have nuclear weapons.

Palestine's "turbulent priest" delivers a blistering Easter message

Stuart Littlewood views the Easter message of Gaza’s courageous Fr Manuel Musallam in which he delivered a blistering attack on Israel’s occupation and its rape of the holy sites, and a damning indictment of the silence of the cowards in the West.

Alex Jones interview blasts corporate media war lies killing millions; explains patriots’ resistance

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

Any person competent with the disclosed facts of evidence and US war laws can prove that US government and media “leadership” willfully lied by commission and omission to cause unlawful war in Iraq. I document the evidence and explain the law in writing here. I verbally walk listeners through in my interview by eminent scholar, Jim Fetzer, here. This evidence includes CIA disclosure of over 400 active agency assets infiltrating corporate media to propagandize Americans to achieve government policy priorities.

POPE ON A ROPE

Not for the faint of heart. Somewhat bent. Certainly will not appeal to all.

If you easily offended by something as tame as the Bugs Bunny Road Runner Hour, do NOT watch.
And don't complain when you do.

Hillary slams Canada, leaves Arctic summit

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slammed Canada Monday for not inviting Sweden, Finland, and Iceland for the Arctic summit held near Ottawa and made an early exit from the gathering.

Attended by foreign ministers of Canada, Denmark, Russia, the US and Norway, the summit was organized to discuss the future of the resource-rich Arctic region which contains one fourth of the world's oil and gas reserves as well as unfathomed mineral wealth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whereupon Canada informed Hillary that they will bring their troops home from Afghanistan!

Israel’s Delusion=The World’s Misery

No, we’re not being cheeky here. Indeed, GOD HAS SPOKEN and all anyone need do in figuring this out for him or herself is crack open the playbook being used in mapping all this misery out and see for themselves.

After all, lest we forget, according to the narrative in question, for some indescribable reason the creator of the universe DID decide one day to focus His infinite attention and affection on one tiny, seemingly insignificant percentage of his handiwork, commanding them to then go about the business of invading, stealing, enslaving and genociding those who did not “bless them” in a way deemed acceptable.

The Convenient Media Rope-a-Dope with The Pope.

The purpose of showcasing The Pope is to create a target for public outrage. The purpose of this Tea Party scam is to create a channel for outrage and there will be other targets and other channels because this is just the prelude to something else and they have to stay at it or else you might even realize that they are the one’s doing it all.

Will Boobus Wake Up? Butler Shaffer on oblivious Americans and Obama, MD.

The response of the politicians to these isolated threats reveals the utterly dishonest nature of all political systems. CNN informs us that "Democrats discuss concerns with police, FBI." If these legislators truly believed that they were acting in the interests of those who voted for them – instead of the corporations and governmental bureaucracies who promoted the measure – why don’t the "Democrats discuss concerns" with their alleged constituencies?

Opposed to Obamacare? Then You Must Be a Racist

Opposed to Obamacare? Then You Must Be a Racist

Frank Rich spent many years as the theater critic for the New York Times, where, at worst, his venom could cause a Broadway production or two to close down.

Now, however, Mr. Rich opines on political and social issues for the Times, and, while the results are usually mildly amusing (even if unintentionally so), his reach has grown a bit, so the damage he causes can travel beyond the footlights. I’m not sure why anyone turns to Rich for political analysis—heck, you might as well read the rantings of a TV game show host—but the Gray Lady continues to pay him for his weekly column, and, at the rate she’s bleeding money, that’s no small sacrifice.

Israel Threatens Lebanon: A New Middle East War?

When Israeli Minister without Portfolio Yossi Peled said recently that a war with Lebanon’s Hezbollah was “just a matter of time” and that such a conflict would include Syria.

The Lebanese are certainly not treating it as Likud bombast.

“We hear a lot of Israeli threats day in and day out, and not only threats,” Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri told the BBC. “We see what is happening on the ground and in our airspace…during the past two months—every day we have Israeli airplanes entering Lebanese airspace.”

Carl Herman podcast: explaining the evidence of Iraq war were all known lies; war is clearly unlawful

*hyperlinks and interview link at source*

James Fetzer interviewed me on his radio show and podcast, The Real Deal, to walk Americans through the disclosed evidence for war with Iraq to demonstrate beyond doubt that claims for war were all known as false at the time they were told to the American public. We also walk the audience through the laws of war to demonstrate beyond doubt that current US wars are tragic-comic unlawful; Orwellian in the distance between the disclosed and verifiable evidence and the law. The article with links of documentation is here.
