NASA Glenn Incident was Actually Drill Gone Wrong

BROOK PARK, Ohio — An incident Friday morning at NASA Glenn Research Center that had authorities scrambling to investigate possible shots fired was actually a drill gone wrong, Fox 8?s Emily Valdez reports.

Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Lt. Donald Michalosky says a “shots fired” message was misinterpreted by someone unaware that it was part of a drill.

Surrounding police departments also did not know about the drill and responded to calls as if it was a legitimate situation. Things escalated from there.

106,000 jobless Floridians could run out of unemployment benefits by December 4th

The clock is ticking for about 106,000 unemployed Floridians.

That's how many people will run out of unemployment benefits by Dec. 4 unless Congress passes another emergency extension during its upcoming lame duck session. And every week after that, Florida officials estimate, another 41,000 jobless will join them — many of them being cut off after receiving as few as 26 weeks of paid benefits from the state...

Indonesia volcano blasts searing gas; 122 now dead

MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia (AP) -- Searing gas avalanched down an Indonesian volcano with a thunderous roar, torching houses and trees and incinerating villagers as they fled Mount Merapi's worst eruption in a century. Scores of bodies found Friday raised the death toll to 122.

The injured - with clothes, blankets and even mattresses fused to their skin by the 1,400 degree Fahrenheit (750 degree Celsius) heat - were carried away on stretchers following the first big explosion just before midnight.

All Friday, Merapi shot towering plumes of ash that dusted the windshields of cars 300 miles (480 kilometers) away. Bursts of hot clouds occasionally interrupted aid efforts, with rescuers screaming "Watch out! Hot cloud!"

The TSA: America’s Real Child Pornography/Molestation Machine

Let me give an example. In Catoosa County (where Tonya Craft’s trial took place), Georgia, James Combs, a substitute teacher, is charged with child molestation because he patted some children on the back during class. (I have read the police reports in this case, along with other documents, and can tell readers confidently that Mr. Combs did not molest anyone, but in the aftermath of the Craft debacle, the Catoosa County authorities are desperate to get back their credibility and hope a jury will convict Mr. Combs.)

Nowhere in those police reports has there been a credible description of Mr. Combs doing what TSA workers do every day at airports. In other words, these workers have a free pass to do what would land anyone else into prison.

No, Pentagon says, Obama will not be guarded by 34 ships

President Barack Obama will not be protected by a vast armada of 34 US warships when he visits Mumbai this weekend, officials said, calling reports from India on security preparations "comical."

The claim that many of the 288-ship US naval fleet would be deployed to waters off Mumbai was "absolutely absurd," Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell told reporters on Thursday.

US officials usually decline to discuss details about security precautions for the president, but the media accounts circulating out of India were so off the mark that press officers at the Pentagon and the White House said they felt compelled to speak up.

Anwar Al-Awlaki, the “Ninja” Reported Dead In 2009

Anwar Al-Awlaki, the man charged with masterminding terror attempts/attacks such as the Fort Hood Shooting, The Christmas Day Bomber, and The Times Square Fizzler was reported dead in 2009 by Fox News. This is interesting as it correlates with other top terrorists who are actually dead.

Fox News

December 24, 2009

The radical Muslim imam linked to the rampage at Fort Hood reportedly is believed to have been killed in a Yemen airstrike that may have also taken out the region’s top Al Qaeda leader and 30 other militants.

The raid in Yemen’s east targeted an Al Qaeda leadership meeting held to organize terror attacks. U.S. officials believe radical cleric Anwar Awlaki was “probably” one of dozens of militants killed in the strike, a source confirmed to FOX News.

Experts: Did UN troops infect Haiti?

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Researchers should determine whether United Nations peacekeepers were the source of a deadly outbreak of cholera in Haiti, two public health experts, including a U.N. official, said Wednesday.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the strain of cholera that has killed at least 442 people the past three weeks matches strains found in South Asia. The CDC, World Health Organization and United Nations say it’s not possible to pinpoint the source and investigating further would distract from efforts to fight the disease.

Homeland Security To “Regionalize” Emergency Supplies Over Next 90 Days

A phone interview with Sharon Bylier of The Dept of Homeland Security, revealed that H.S. is stepping up regionalizing disaster supplies. Simply put, they are taking emergency items that are currently centralized in Washington, D.C., and distributing them nationally. Sort of like a mobilization of suppies. Their plan is to complete the supply of fifteen H.S. warehouses around the country in the next three months. Ms. Bylier is quoted as saying “we have worked hard the last six months to meet our local objectives.” She continued “the goals of Homeland Security are in sight.” It’s difficult to know if this is a good or bad omen. No comment was offered as to why this program has been given so much urgency at this time. It’s nice to know we’re ready. But ready for What?

All of our projections of vastly increased populations are going to run into the brick wall of water scarcity and terrible water quality.

CIA lawyer: U.S. law does not forbid rendition

Daniel Pines, an assistant general counsel at the CIA, has asserted in a law journal that the abduction of terrorism suspects abroad is legal under U.S. law, even when the suspect is turned over to countries notorious for torture.

“There are virtually no legal restrictions on these types of operations,” Pines asserts in the current edition of the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal.

“Indeed, U.S. law does not even preclude the United States from rendering individuals to a third country in instances where the third country may subject the rendered individual to torture. The only restrictions that do exist under U.S. law preclude U.S. officials from themselves torturing or inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on individuals during rendition operations, or rendering individuals from a place of actual armed conflict or occupation -- all of which prove to be narrow limitations indeed,” Pines writes.

YouTube takes down ‘terror cleric’ al-Awlaki videos

The move came less than a week after authorities intercepted air cargo bombs sent from Yemen to the US in a plot linked to Mr Awlaki.

The US has named Mr Awlaki a “specially designated global terrorist”

9 Reasons Why Quantitative Easing Is Bad For The U.S. Economy

The Fed says that the plan is to purchase $600 billion of U.S. Treasury securities by the middle of 2011. In addition, the Federal Reserve has announced that it will be "reinvesting" an additional $250 billion to $300 billion from the proceeds of its mortgage portfolio in U.S. Treasury securities over the same time period. So that is a total injection of about $900 billion. Perhaps the Fed thought that number would sound a little less ominous than $1 trillion.

The Impotence of Elections

The American situation is dire. As a result of the high speed Internet, the loss of manufacturing jobs was followed by the loss of professional service jobs, such as software engineering, that were career ladders for American university graduates. The middle class has no prospects. Already, the American labor force and income distribution mimics that of a third world country, with income and wealth concentrated in a few hands at the top and most of the rest of the population employed in domestic services jobs.

On top of all the other factors that have made American elections meaningless, voters cannot even get correct information from the media about the problems that they and the country face.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Paul Craig Roberts: thinking people have rather well tuned out the corporate media when it comes to informational substance; when people want the truth, they are increasingly coming to sites like this one.

In addition, undeveloped petroleum reserves in the territory between Yemen and Saudi Arabia are reportedly among the world’s largest.

Catherine Austin Fitts: The Looting Of America

Former Assistant Secretary of Housing under George H.W. Bush Catherine Austin Fitts blows the whistle on how the financial terrorists have deliberately imploded the US economy and transferred gargantuan amounts of wealth offshore as a means of sacrificing the American middle class. Fitts documents how trillions of dollars went missing from government coffers in the 90?s and how she was personally targeted for exposing the fraud.

Fitts explains how every dollar of debt issued to service every war, building project, and government program since the American Revolution up to around 2 years ago – around $12 trillion – has been doubled again in just the last 18 months alone with the bank bailouts. “We’re literally witnessing the leveraged buyout of a country and that’s why I call it a financial coup d’état, and that’s what the bailout is for,” states Fitts.

Massive amounts of financial capital have been sucked out the United States and moved abroad, explains Fitts, ensuring that corporations have become more powerful than governments, changing the very structure of governance on the planet and ensuring we are ruled by private corporations. Pension and social security funds have also been stolen and moved offshore, leading to the end of fiscal responsibility and sovereignty as we know it.

Qantas Jet Makes Emergency Landing Amid Claims of Explosion

A Qantas Jet has made an emergency landing in Singapore after an apparent engine malfunction. Multiple witnesses have claimed that they saw and heard an explosion before the emergency landing. Reports seem to differ as to what actually caused this emergency landing.

This has all the markings of a botched black op used to further the fraudulent war on terror.

A Qantas superjumbo jet made an emergency landing Thursday in Singapore with 459 people aboard, after one of its four engines failed over western Indonesia and following witness reports of a blast that sent debris hurtling to the ground.

Suspicious Packages Found in New York and Scotland Airports

Suspicious Packages have apparently been “found” at both JFK Airport in New York and Glasgow Airport in Scotland.

A shipping facility at JFK Airport was evacuated as a precaution Wednesday evening while authorities are doublechecking some of the same packages from Yemen that caused a international terror scare last week, an airport source said.

Fed Will Probably Start $500 Billion of Bond Buys, Survey Shows

The Federal Reserve will probably begin a new round of unconventional monetary easing this week by announcing a plan to buy at least $500 billion of long-term securities, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg News.

Policy makers meeting tomorrow and Nov. 3 will restart a program of securities purchases to spur growth, reduce unemployment and increase inflation, said 53 of 56 economists surveyed last week. Twenty-nine estimated the Fed will pledge to buy $500 billion or more, while another seven predicted $50 billion to $100 billion in monthly purchases without a specified total. The remainder said the Fed would buy up to $500 billion or didn’t quantify their forecast.

It is the story of the century and it is still not to be questioned by the leading so-called alternative news websites that have reached mainstream levels of viewership. 9/11 is the stinky fart in the newsroom, where everyone with half-a-brain knows who cut the cheese, but because the boss is the culprit they’re afraid to be ridiculed or fired for speaking out.

Welcome to the good old USA where citizens, unlike those in Europe , do not riot in the streets demanding justice but keep believing in the nonsense that voting for either Republicans or Democrats will work for them and the nation.

Despair follows delusion. Despite the endless media hype, the political revolution of 2010 is like a badly made firecracker – a dud. President Obama, Republicans and Democrats will have learned nothing profound, not enough to dedicate themselves to real reforms. Along with economic pain, widespread anger will persist as nothing tangible results to make the lives of ordinary Americans a lot better. Will Americans demand smarter strategies than voting in regular elections with choices between Democrats and Republicans?

War Is Sold Just Like Soda or Toothpaste

White House chief of Staff Andrew Card famously said - in explaining why the Bush administration waited until September to make its case for war in Iraq:

From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August.

War is - indeed - marketed just like soda or toothpaste.

Everyone knows that truth is the first casualty of war.

Countries need to lie about their enemies in order to demonize them sufficiently so that the people will support the war.

That is why intelligence "failures" - such as the following - are so common.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would really like to hope that, after having been lied into two brutal, immoral, and illegal wars (Iraq and Afghanistan) that the American people would have the horse-sense not to be lied into another.

And if this, or any other administration, attempts to do so, that the American people would scream, with one voice, "absolutely NOT!!!!!"

Portland Rejects Non-Citizen Voting

The proposal was defeated in Tuesday's election by margin of 52 percent to 48 percent.

Waging the big bucks jihad

I don't like this scare mongering, but the fact is that it's not limited to any one issue. Hundreds of tax-exempt groups of every kind raise money by offering scary descriptions of what will happen if the other side prevails. Both major political parties are famous for employing fear in their message.

And it's all legal. So long as a non-profit informs the IRS where its money is coming from, how it spends it, and how much it pays its staff, it can solicit support any way it wants to The government just wants to make sure that the benefit of tax exemption is not exploited to make the beneficiaries of these contributions rich. Tax-exempt donations are meant for supporting the cause - no matter whether the cause is good, bad or indifferent. They are not for lining anyone's pocket.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whenever confronted by misinformation which makes you feel scared, nervous, angry and vulnerable, remember: that is precisely its design intent.

When you are in that mental state, it is hard to think clearly and rationally, which is exactly how the people who've concocted the misinformation want you to feel.

Do your own research, and ask the question: who really benefits if I cannot think logically about a particular issue or group? What would be the outcome of my mentally "signing on" to a fearmonger's particular agenda?!?

Nevada: Mysterious Power outage delays election results

LAS VEGAS -- Long lines at polling locations in northern Nevada have held up Tuesday's election results, according to Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller.
"No results of any statewide races can be reported in any county until all polls across the state are closed," Miller said in a statement. He could not say how long the vote count would take.
A power outage in Henderson briefly delayed voting at Schofield Elementary School earlier in the evening, after a vehicle hit a transformer at Eastern Avenue and the 215 Beltway.

Psychological Attacks Coming To A Primary School Near You

There was a time when school was there to educate. They’ve always been slightly fascist by their very nature, but the main focus appeared to be on developing the minds of the children so they could enter society with a well rounded view of the world. Not anymore, it seems instead of developing minds, schools across the UK and the world are now actively breaking them down and traumatizing them psychologically.

ELECTION 2010: A DISASTER FOR PEACE

The expected Election Day Republican “wave” that broke over our heads is a disaster for the anti-interventionist cause in the immediate sense – but there may be a silver lining.

The disaster is embodied in the various GOP warmongers who will be placed in key positions in Congress, and a good case could be made that among the worst of the worst will be the probable majority leader in the House: Eric Cantor.

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THE YEMEN TERROR SCARE

By Barry Grey (Source: Global Research)

In what has become a regular feature of American public life—especially on the eve of major elections—the airwaves were taken over Friday by breathless reports of a new terror threat. It is impossible to determine how much is fact and how much is fiction in the ever-expanding claims being made regarding two packages from Yemen allegedly containing high explosives and addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.

But the very fact that the decision was made, undoubtedly at a very high level, to give such massive media coverage to the alleged plot—before any concrete details were being reported and entirely on the basis of unsubstantiated claims made by, for the most part, anonymous officials—is sufficient reason to adopt a highly skeptical attitude.

WHAT KIND OF ECONOMY DID VOTERS WANT, WHAT WILL THEY GET?

Now That The Elections Are Over, What Kind of Economy Did Americans Vote For?
The Election is over. The Dems were thumped. They lost the House, even if they still have the Senate by a hair. Barney Frank will be back but not Alan Grayson or Russ Feingold. WSWS offered the key reason: “intractable and deepening economic crisis and the evident inability of the Obama administration to develop any policies to overcome it.”

Is that crisis likely to go away after an emboldened army of the righteous (and well-financed claque of economically responsible free market boosters) won more nominal power?

Will the deficits disappear?

Will the government shrink to what to what was in the era of the “founders?”

Will the economy breathe a sign of relief and bounce back?

WASHPOST: WAR WITH IRAN WOULD RESCUE ECONOMY

By Daniel Tencer (source: The Raw Story )

Washington Post political correspondent David Broder has kind words for President Barack Obama in in his opinion column Sunday, arguing that it isn’t the president’s fault the economy is stuck in reverse.

But the four-decade-plus veteran of Washington politics offers a startling solution to the president’s political and economic woes: March off to war with Iran.

The president, who is “much smarter” and “more inspirational” than any of his opponents, could benefit from a confrontation with Iran because it would strike up a war machine that would pull the US out of economic stagnation, Broder argues.

Man Buys Police Department's Domain Name After Getting Ticket

Most of the time, if you get a speeding ticket you just grumble about it and pay the fine. It’s usually not a big deal for most people unless it happens a lot or they get caught going a ridiculous amount over the posted speed limit. You can fight it in court or just pay the ticket, and for most people those are the only options.

However, after receiving a $90 speeding ticket in Bluff City, Tennessee, Brian McCrary discovered a third option. The Bluff City Police Department had forgotten to renew their domain name, BluffCityPD.com, and let it expire. McCrary bought the domain name for $80 and posted his side of the story with information about speed traps in Bluff City and the $250,000 per month they cost the town’s 1,500 residents.

Rand Paul Victory Sends Fed Critic to Senate

Republican Rand Paul’s victory means that Kentucky will continue to send an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve to the Senate.

Retiring Sen. Jim Bunning, who Paul succeeds, has been the chief Fed critic in the U.S. Senate. Not only did he vote against the reconfirmation of Ben Bernanke earlier this year, but he was also the sole “no” vote in the Senate Banking Committee during the Fed chairman’s first confirmation. Bunning could also always be counted on to spend his seven minutes during Bernanke’s semiannual testimony to the Banking Committee attacking the Fed.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that Paul will take Bunning’s spot on the Senate Banking Committee. But judging from his interest in the Fed, it seems likely that Paul will seek a spot on the influential panel.

An organization called Minnesota Majority, for example, claims it found hundreds of ineligible votes by convicted felons cast in the 2008 election, possibly turning the tide in the very narrowly decided election of Sen. Al Franken.

Harry Reid Wins Senate Re-Election Amid Widespread Voter Fraud

Sen. Harry Reid has won reelection in a tightly contested battle with Sharron Angle. Angle, a strong supporter of the Constitution and small government, appears to have lost despite recent polling that had her up by as much as 3 points.

Reports of fraud and intimidation have circulated for weeks, with early voters complaining of rigged voting machines throughout Clark County.

Residents of Clark County Nevada have reported that upon attempting to vote for Angle they found that Reid’s name had already been checked. This is not surprising as widespread voting fraud has been reported since the inception of the fraudulent electronic voting machines.

Oozing sanctimonious arrogance, viewing the rest of us as coarse, unsophisticated rubes who cling bitterly to guns and bibles, this class seeks to impose its own supposedly superior values and visions upon the rest of us, by force of law.
As we know too well, the ultimate goal of our Ruling Class is power. They exist—not to produce, not to invent, not to create—but to manipulate and master others.

VOTE BY MAIL PUTS NOVEMBER ELECTION AT HIGH RISK

Vote-by-mail is the second highest risk method of voting. It conceals three of the four crucial processes. (Internet voting, illegal in most states, is the highest risk form of voting because it conceals all four essential election processes from the public.)

THE FOUR CRUCIAL PROCESSES ARE:
1) Who can vote (the voter list)
2) Who did vote (the pollbook, or participating voter list)
3) Whether votes counted were the votes cast (chain of custody)
4) Whether counting was accurate (public can see and authenticate counting)

Vote by mail conceals #2, #3, and usually #4 from the public. I'm going to show you the details on that below, along with documented examples of insiders exploiting absentee voting processes to alter election results, and I'll point out some of the things we can do to resolve these problems.

A recent ballot measure of great concern to environmentally-conscious citizens was Marin County's Novato Sanitary District "Measure F", which won by just 179 votes in June 2010. Measure F was thumped at the polls, but absentee votes flipped this to a win.

Perhaps the Roman Catholic hierarchy has woken up to the fact that tens of thousands of Palestinian Arab Christians are forced to leave their ancestral homeland as a result of the brutality and oppression stemming from the ongoing Israeli occupation.

More than two thousand years ago, the frenzied multitude rejected Jesus because they thought he was going to rob them of their “chosen people” status and equate them with the rest of mankind. Today, 2000 years later, under the same chosen people rubric, Palestinian villagers, Christians and Muslims alike, are still being chased, assaulted, and hunted down “because they don’t belong”.

Humiliate, strip, threaten: UK military interrogation manuals discovered

The British military has been training interrogators in techniques that include threats, sensory deprivation and enforced nakedness in an apparent breach of the Geneva conventions, the Guardian has discovered.

Training materials drawn up secretly in recent years tell interrogators they should aim to provoke humiliation, insecurity, disorientation, exhaustion, anxiety and fear in the prisoners they are questioning, and suggest ways in which this can be achieved.

One PowerPoint training aid created in September 2005 tells trainee military interrogators that prisoners should be stripped before they are questioned. "Get them naked," it says. "Keep them naked if they do not follow commands." Another manual prepared around the same time advises the use of blindfolds to put prisoners under pressure.

On October 27 the U.S. 86th Airlift Wing and 435th Air Ground Operations Wing completed two weeks of joint exercises in Bulgaria in the context of Thracian Fall 2010, during which American personnel "were able to train and lead more than 1,000 Bulgarian paratroopers to successful landings from U. S. Air Force in Europe's newest tactical aircraft."

As to the purpose of such exercises, an American officer present for them said, "We are hoping by them [Bulgarians] being able to observe how we conduct our operations they will use this to enhance their own ability, from paratrooper operations to flying and one day be able to conduct exercises and even assist in future conflicts."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the way the Pentagon sees as a viable method for conducting various proxy wars while not raising the size of the US military through a compulsory draft.

Russian leadership has every reason to be nervous about the US doing these joint exercises in Eastern Europe.

Fraud Caused the 1930s Depression and the Current Financial Crisis

Robert Shiller - one of the top housing experts in the United States - says that the mortgage fraud is a lot like the fraud which occurred during the Great Depression. As Fortune notes:

Shiller said the danger of foreclosuregate -- the scandal in which it has come to light that the biggest banks have routinely mishandled homeownership documents, putting the legality of foreclosures and related sales in doubt -- is a replay of the 1930s, when Americans lost faith that institutions such as business and government were dealing fairly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where this article says that "...the biggest banks have routinely mishandled homeownership documents," there is a word which should follow the word "routinely", and that is "deliberately".
