Paul Craig Roberts: More Lies, More Deception (about the G-20 meeting)

Not to be outdone in idiocy, out of Obama's mouth jumped Orwellian doublespeak: “The Iranian government must now demonstrate through deeds its peaceful intentions or be held accountable to international standards and international law.”

The incongruity blows the mind. Here is Obama, with troops engaged in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan demanding that a peaceful nation at war with no one demonstrate “its peaceful intentions or be held accountable to international standards and international law.”

Poisoned patriots? Stricken Marines seek help with illnesses

Kelly is one of 20 retired U.S. Marines or sons of Marines who once lived at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and who are now suffering from breast cancer, a disease that strikes about one man for every 100 women who get it. Each of the seven men CNN interviewed for this report has had part of his chest removed as part of his treatment, along with chemotherapy, radiation or both.

All 20 fear that water contaminated with high levels of toxic chemicals may have caused their illnesses, but the Marine Corps says no link has been found between the contamination and their diseases. Without that link, the men are denied treatment by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which says it can't treat them for a condition that hasn't been shown to have been "service-related." Video

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of these Marines should have precisely the same top-tier medical treatment for their illnesses that Dick Cheney gets, period, end of discussion.

The Corps needs to stand up, take responsibility for this, and see to it that nothing like this every happens to one of their own again.

And it is that issue of not taking responsibility which is completely outrageous.

US ‘Troop Targets’ May Force Conscription on Afghanistan

Citing targets imposed on the nation by the United States, the Afghan Defense Ministry reports that it is now drawing up a plan to impose conscription on the war.

But even though jobs are tough to come by in Afghanistan, many of its residents aren’t exactly enamoured with the idea of joining the poorly-trained military of an increasingly weakened government facing an ever escalating war against a powerful insurgency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many of these conscripts will wind up taking their training and weapons, and joining that Taliban.

And you've just got to love McChrystal's statement about the US not wanting to look like an "...occupation force."

He must be completely oblivious to the bitter irony of that statement.

Obama: Iran Is on Notice, Won’t Rule Out Military Action

Citing Iran’s revelation earlier this week that it is constructing a second, smaller uranium enrichment facility, President Barack Obama demanded that the Iranian government “come clean” about his long-standing accusations of a nuclear weapons program, and said he would not rule out attacking the nation if they refused.

Despite these claims, it isn’t apparent that Iran broke any rules with the facility. The IAEA only requires that it be informed six months before the facility is operational, which Iran apparently did on Monday. The IAEA has said the information it has been given suggests the facility, like Iran’s current one, is only designed to enrich uranium to 5%, useful only for civilian purpose.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter if Iran is following the IAEA rules to the letter, this second enrichment facility is going to be waived in the faces of American citizens as the excuse to go to war.

Stolen from his mother - and sold to the highest bidder

The Church may have opened its doors to 'fallen women'; but once they were inside, it exploited them mercilessly.

From speaking to mothers who were caught up in the convent homes, and by digging through government records, I realised that in the early Fifties the state was paying the nuns £1 a week for every one of the thousands of mothers they had in their care, and 2s 6d for every baby. In addition, the Church kept the proceeds from the girls' labour.

It was a source of significant income, and the nuns made sure the women stayed and worked for at least three years. They could get out only by paying £100 - an impossible amount for the vast majority.

Security Worsens As Taliban Move Into Northern Afghanistan

Northern Afghanistan may now be on the Western radar, but the Taliban have been building up their forces there for more than a year and a half.

The northern supply route from Tajikistan is intended to supplement the main southern passage through Pakistan, which has come under increasing attack by militants. The deputy governor of Konduz, Hamdullah Danesh, told RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan his region is an already well-established front line in the Afghan war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By any measure, the US is losing in Afghanistan.

The only options now are a massive escalation in military troops (with a still very uncertain outcome from that decision), or leaving.

US and European powers threaten Iran

IAEA spokesman Marc Vidricaire said: “I can confirm that on September 21 Iran informed the IAEA in a letter that a new pilot fuel-enrichment plant is under construction in the country. The letter stated that the enrichment level would be up to 5 per cent.”

Subsequent statements from Tehran suggest that the facility is a backup for Natanz, which has been identified as a prime target for air strikes by Israel or the United States. Israeli officials have repeatedly suggested that they will undertake such a military assault by the end of this year unless Iran surrenders to the US-led pressure campaign and dismantles its nuclear program.

Dennis Blair: Iran Has Not Re-Started Its Nuclear Weapons Program

Earlier this month, Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen made headlines when he was asked by CNN whether Iran had enough enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb. “We think they do, quite frankly,” Mullen said. This morning, Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) asked Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair to address the “confusion” about what the intelligence says about Iran’s weapons capacity. Blair said the intelligence community has assessed that Iran does not possess any highly-enriched uranium, and clarified that Mullen had been referring only to low-enriched uranium.

es, the financial crisis has passed and the economy is growing again, but there's a good chance that growth will be temporary - the result of one-time events like "Cash for Clunkers," the tax credit for first-time home buyers and the restocking of inventories allowed to dwindle during last year's crisis.

New Iran uranium enrichment site raises concerns

Iran's newly revealed uranium enrichment plant is a heavily guarded, still-unfinished underground facility in the arid mountains near the holy city of Qom that will be able to produce nuclear fuel — or the payload for atomic warheads, Western intelligence officials and diplomats said Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is what is going on and why the US and Israel are in such a panic.

Iran is a signer of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty. Under that treaty, Iran has a legal right to build nuclear power stations and to produce the fuel for them. Under Article IV, the United States is supposed to help them do it.

Under IAEA rules, any nation building a new nuclear facility must notify the IAEA 6 months before any new facility becomes operational. Iran's new facility is still 18 months away from completion, but Iran notified the IAEA last Monday IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NNPT RULES!

This revelation is embarrassing for the US and Israel for two reasons.

1. Contrary to face-save propaganda, the US and Israel did not know about this facility. Clearly it would have advanced the US and Israeli agenda to create war against Iran by revealing the facility before Iran could formally notify the IAEA. That would have put Iran totally on the defensive about the facility. That the Us and Israel did not do so tells me they were caught totally off guard (which also casts doubt on the so-called intelligence sources that claim Iran is building a weapon).

2. Iran announced the new facility to prove it is playing by the IAEA rules. Iran did so probably to underscore the fact that Israel just told the IAEA and the United Nations to go fuck themselves following a request by the IAEA and the United Nations for Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty and submit to IAEA inspections.

To save their own face, the US and Israel appear ready to launch a new war in Iran, simply because they cannot think of anything better to do.

War with Iran will mean war with Russia.

The US lacks the industrial capacity to sustain a major regional war.

The US Government (the finest government money can buy) is going to start a major war they cannot win.

Vietnam veteran loses his house, car

WAILUKU - A Vietnam War veteran lost his house and was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine after police found 5 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his car three years ago.

The veteran received an honorable discharge after serving one year in Vietnam, Covich had used alternative medicine to treat a medical condition, said Deputy Public Defender Adriel Menor.

"It's clear he's a tireless advocate for veterans," Menor said. "He's also a family man. He's close to not only his family but the families of these veterans he works for."

Tate said it might have been appropriate for Covich to experiment with marijuana after suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, but the amount of the drug seized by police exceeded amounts for personal use.

Since the last quarterly estimate, UHERO has brightened a bit on three fronts. The numbers remain negative, but not as negative as a few weeks ago.

The visitor industry is forecast to lag the reviving overall economy, and UHERO does not expect arrivals to reach 7 million again until 2012. Hotel-occupancy rates, now around 66 percent, are not expected to reach 70 percent through 2011.

U.S. Intelligence Budget: $75 Billion, 200,000 Operatives. Fusion Centers Will Have Access to Classified Military Intelligence

Speaking at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club September 15, Director of National Intelligence Admiral Dennis C. Blair, disclosed that the current annual budget for the 16 agency U.S. "Intelligence Community" (IC) clocks-in at $75 billion and employs some 200,000 operatives world-wide, including private contractors.

In unveiling an unclassified version of the National Intelligence Strategy (NIS), Blair asserts he is seeking to break down "this old distinction between military and nonmilitary intelligence," stating that the "traditional fault line" separating secretive military programs from overall intelligence activities "is no longer relevant."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a side note, all these professionals are in agreement (as of the last NIE) that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons and has not going as far back as 2003.

But Obama is taking the word of Israel that Iran is a threat justifying the slaughter of thousands of Americans and the forced impoverishment of millions more.

We were expecting to reach the next solar maxima around 2011–2012. However, space weather experts have been surprised over the past few years to report very few signs that the number of sunspots has been picking up since the last solar minimum in 2006. This has prompted some space scientists to forecast that we are heading towards another prolonged spell of quiet sunspot activity, the last of which was observed between 1645 and 1715 in a period called the "Maunder Minimum".

Why we can all stop worrying about 'Global Warming' for a bit

Yet in Geneva, Latif was forced to admit that all those An-Inconvenient-Truth-style fantasy projections showing global temperatures rising inexorably with C02 levels were wrong. The world is getting cooler, not warming. It will continue to cool, Latif reckons, till 2020 or possibly 2030. By how much he doesn’t know: “The jury is still out.”

Which begs the rather obvious question: if the IPCC’s doomsday computer models didn’t predict this cooling phase, how can we be sufficiently confident in their other assertions to start basing major economic and social policy decisions on them?

Forecast: A cooling trend on climate change

The United Nations is pulling out the “big guns” in an attempt to create a climate of urgency about climate change so that the meeting of over one hundred world leaders in Copenhagen some 75 days from now can produce an agreement to replace to failed Kyoto accord.

Nature, however, is not co-operating. Average global temperature is rising at 1.40C per century, not the 3.90C indicated by the IPPC models. We are in the seventh year of global cooling. Sea levels, despite messages to the contrary, are rising at normal rates – eight inches per century – much less than the IPPC models suggested. There has been no significant rise in sea levels over the last four years. Arctic sea ice, currently in its summer state, is more extensive in 2009 than it was in 2007 and 2008.

Nothing aggravates me more than having someone try to decieve me. Along with many other Americans, I feel that I am being lied to and "weasel worded" by President Obama. He comes from a background of radical community organizing in the school of Saul Alinsky. It was Alinsky who advocated that the powerless seize power from the powerful by insinuating themselves into the established system and, while maintaining a deception, rise to positions of power from which they could then bring about radical change. That method was laid out in Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals."

Now NYC CAN is battling to prove the petition is legally valid. On September 28, the referee will report on the petition's legality, and a final determination will be made in the days that follow.

Ahmadinejad: Iran is not violating IAEA rules

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says his country has complied with U.N. rules that require it to inform the world body's nuclear agency six months before a uranium enrichment becomes operational.

He told a news conference Friday that the new facility won't be operational for 18 months so Iran has not violated any requirements of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR PALESTINE! GRACIAS ESPAÑA !!

Spain has expelled a group of Israeli scientists from a state-funded solar energy competition because they are based in occupied areas of the West Bank, it said today.

The decision to expel the team from the Ariel University Centre of Samaria from Solar Decathlon Europe, an international competition involving 20 universities, has provoked angry reactions in Israel. The team was one of 20 finalists in a competition to design solar-powered housing that is part-sponsored by the US energy department.

On September 22nd Human Rights Watch issued a report stating that it “has received credible reports that police used excessive force – wielding truncheons and firing tear gas and rubber bullets – today to disperse thousands of Zelaya supporters who gathered outside the Brazilian Embassy in Tegucigalpa” where constitutionally elected President Zelaya has been staying since he stealthfully returned to Honduras on September 21st. “Given the reports we have received, and the poor track record since the coup, we fear that conditions could deteriorate drastically in the coming days” said Jose Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch.

Zelaya's Return... How Much Repression Will Hillary Clinton Support in Honduras?

Now that President Zelaya has returned to Honduras, the coup government – after first denying that he was there – has unleashed a wave of repression to prevent people from gathering support for their elected president. This is how U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the first phase of this new repression last night in a press conference:

“I think that the government imposed a curfew, we just learned, to try to get people off the streets so that there couldn't be unforeseen developments.”

UN Security Council Calls for all Nations to Join NPT and a 'Nuclear-Free' World except for Israel

Despite its lofty goal of an eventually nuclear-free planet, the resolution is bound to raise serious questions about the hypocrisy of the UNSC members, since several of them (including the US) voted less than a week ago to oppose a call for Israel to join the NPT. Israel has repeatedly ruled out joining the NPT, and reacted with outrage at the very suggestion.

US says Iran has secret nuclear facility

Iran has kept the facility, 100 miles southwest of Tehran, hidden from international weapons inspectors for years, but the U.S. has long known of its existence, the official said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is some pretty desperate spin going on here.

Iran notified the IAEA about construction of this new facility. That hardly seems consistent with the idea that Iran is keeping it a secret. No real surprise they are building it inside a mountain considering what Israel did to Osirik.

Now the US is trying to claim they knew about the facility all along, but does this make sense? Would it not have been in Israel's and the US's interests to expose the facility while it was still not reported to the IAEA? Such an expose' would have been very damaging to Iran and turned many other nations against Iran's power station.

So, what appears to have happened is that Iran notified the IAEA of the new facility and caught the US and Israel by surprise, because they should have known and apparently did not. So now the Us and Israel are standing there with egg on their faces trying to pull off a "we knew it all along" face-save.

Dallas bomb plot suspect speaks little English, but tells court he understands charges

A 19-year-old Jordanian citizen accused of trying to blow up a downtown Dallas skyscraper told a federal magistrate this morning at his first court appearance that he understands the charges against him.

Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, who was provided a court-appointed attorney, is charged with trying to detonate a weapon of mass destruction. He is expected to enter a plea at a later hearing.

Smadi was arrested Thursday after he parked a vehicle laden with government-supplied fake explosives in the underground parking garage of Fountain Place, a 60-story tower at Ross Avenue at Field Street, authorities said.

In my opinion, Geithner’s proposal is “TARP on steroids.” Section 1204 of the proposal [the proposal being the "Resolution Authority for Large, Interconnected Financial Companies Act of 2009"] allows the executive branch to use taxpayer money to make loans to, or invest in, the largest financial institutions to avoid a systemic risk to the economy.

When Telling The Truth Becomes Anti-Semitism

“Every man has a right to utter what he thinks is truth, and every other man has a right to knock him down for it.“
-Samuel Johnson

Zionism,the evil of all ‘isms’, is a forbidden word that is either rarely discussed using deductive reasoning or rarely discussed in any form of assemblage.
My argument,which contends that Zionism is racism, collides with many top tier Christian and Jewish Zionists who believe that Zionisms is more or less of a right endowed by God/G-d which equips the Jews from across the globe with an unquestionable right,through colonialism,to occupy another territory.

The request was made at a private meeting with congressional leaders Tuesday morning. Sources said Bush initiated the conversation.

He asked that only the House and Senate intelligence committees look into the potential breakdowns among federal agencies that could have allowed the terrorist attacks to occur, rather than a broader inquiry that some lawmakers have proposed, the sources said.

Let the message that goes out to the world be absolutely clear: that Iran must abandon any military ambitions for its nuclear programme. Thank you.

America's longest armed conflict since that in Indochina and NATO's first ground war threatens to not only remain the world's most dangerous conflagration but also one that plunges the 21st Century into a war without end.

Pentagon Taking Over U.S. Foreign Policy

"Quietly, gradually--and inevitably, given the weight of its colossal budget and imperial writ--the Pentagon has all but eclipsed the State Department at the center of US foreign policy-making," reporter Stephen Glain writes in the Sept. 28 issue.

In addition to new weapons and war fighters, the Pentagon's budget "now underwrites a cluster of special funds from which it can train and equip foreign armies--often in the service of repressive regimes--as well as engage in aid development projects in pursuit of its own tactical ends."

Israeli drive to prevent Jewish girls dating Arabs

Hostility to intimate relationships developing across Israel’s ethnic divide is shared by many Israeli Jews, who regard such behaviour as a threat to the state’s Jewishness.

In a recent appearance on Al Jazeera, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said, "both Afghanistan and Pakistan can count on us for the long term."

Here is the Cantor plan for middle-income Americans who may have lost their health insurance after being laid off by a company whose CEO might be making a million dollars a year.

Victory on preventive detention law: in context

This leads to a more general point: when it comes to uprooting ("changing") the Bush/Cheney approach to Terrorism and civil liberties -- the issue which generated as much opposition to the last presidency as anything else -- the Obama administration has proven rather conclusively that tiny and cosmetic adjustments are the most it is willing to do. They love announcing new policies that cast the appearance of change but which have no effect whatsoever on presidential powers. With great fanfare, they announced the closing of CIA black sites -- at a time when none was operating. They trumpeted the President's order that no interrogation tactics outside of the Army Field Manual could be used -- at a time when approval for such tactics had been withdrawn.

"The numbers are really pretty horrifying. What they say, embedded in this report by McChrystal, is they would need 500,000 troops - boots on the ground - and five years to do the job. No one expects that the Afghan Army could step up to that. Are we gonna put even half that of U.S. troops there, and NATO forces? No way." [Morning Joe, September 23, 2009].

The 9/11 Commission Rejects own Report as Based on Government Lies

In John Farmer’s book: “The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11?, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue...

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fine details no longer matter.

The head of the government's 9-11 commission has just confirmed what we have known all along; the US Government lied to you about 9-11.

The US Government lied to you about 9-11.

Will you continue to give your money to a government that lies to you?

Will you continue to allow a government that lies to you to kill and cripple your children in foreign wars to serve a foreign government?

Will you continue to obey a government that lies to you?

The Constitution does not authorize the government to lie to you, and the Tenth Amendment makes it clear that the government cannot assume that authority. Thus, when the US Government lies, it acts unconstitutionally and illegally. It exceeds its lawful role and ceases to be the legitimate government of this land.

A founding principle of this nation is that government rules with the consent of the governed.

I DO NOT CONSENT TO BE LIED TO.

I do not know anyone who consents to be lied to by the government.

No court would enforce a contract in which one party agrees to be lied to by the other since that party cannot know what they are committing to; the very essence of contract law.

The head of the official 9-11 commission says the US Government lied to us all about 9-11.

What else has the US Government lied to us about?

Probably everything!

Indeed it is probably easier to count the times the government has told us the truth than to keep track of all the lies.

Side note: Have you noticed that ABCNNBBCBS, so eager to trumpet "Muslim Terrorists" on 9-11, are now ignoring the revelation that the 9-11 commission itself is saying it was all a lie.

US Mulls Increasing Drone Strikes in Pakistan

In a move reportedly being spearheaded by Vice President Joe Biden, the United States is reportedly considering a dramatic increase in the number of drone attacks on Pakistani soil.

Biden, a skeptic of the Gen. McChrystal plan to add 45,000 more troops to the war in Afghanistan, seems to be presenting “emphasize Pakistan” as an alternative to committing more troops to the unpopular war. Yet Senator Kit Bond, one of the proponents of escalation in Afghanistan, has said the move shouldn’t come at the expense of adding more troops in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Pakistani leadership, both civilian and military have "signed off" on the increasing US war against the Pakistani people.

But there are two major problems with implementing such a strategy.

First, you're going to wind up killing a lot of non combatants; women, kids, the medically infirm, and folks who just wound up absolutely in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Second, you're going to wind up radicalizing every person left standing against the Pakistani government and the US.

With both Pakistan and Afghanistan, it is apparent that US military and civilian leadership cannot get it through their collective thick skulls that you absolutely cannot win what is essentially a land war from the air.

One has to wonder if "winning", in the conventional military understanding of the term, is perhaps not the goal here.

Perhaps the goal is simply to destabilize the area long enough to prevent Russia from being able to re-arm Iran by land, should there be an Israeli/US military assault against it.

Supreme Prejudice: Scalia Says Government Can Promote Religion

The U.S. Supreme Court is gearing up to come back into session Oct. 5, and just in time for that, Justice Antonin Scalia has decided to pop off in the media about how much he hates church-state separation - again!

In what is billed as an "Historic Exclusive Interview" in the Brooklyn-based Orthodox Jewish newspaper Hamodia, Scalia attacks one of the core concepts of church-state separation - the idea that government must remain neutral between religion and non-religion.

To Scalia, this is all stuff and nonsense. He believes the government should be able to prefer religion. Government neutrality on religious matters, he says, "is not an accurate representation of what Americans believe."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now Scalia discards the First Amendment?

The Founding Fathers guaranteed religious freedom for all by forbidding a state religion. They had seen how the rift between Catholics and Protestants had almost destroyed the British Empire. They understood that their new nation could not withstand a religious war within its own borders.

This is more "divide and conquer" tactics from the US Government, which would rather have the people fighting amongst themselves over whose god has the bigger dick then uniting against a tyrannical government.

Obama open to newspaper bailout bill

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs had played down the possibility of government assistance for news organizations, which have been hit by an economic downturn and dwindling ad revenue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They lied, they died. The corporate media's troubles are being blamed on the economy, but the truth is that the public saw the media stand shoulder to shoulder with the government and lie us all onto pointless wars of conquest.

They probably figured that after the victory, nobody would care how the war got started, but the best laid plans "gang aft agley, nn' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain" etc. The wars are disasters; quaqmires that are sucking down money and our children's lives, and the public rightly places much of the blame on a corporate media that abandoned their self-professed role as watchdogs on government abuse.

The corporate media has lost the trust of the public. Lost? Indeed they deliberately cast it away in exchange for a ride on Air Force One. They will not get that public trust back any time soon.

They SHOULD go out of business, as punishment for betraying the public trust.

So of course the government, whose water the media carries, will bail them out with your tax money.

Anti-U.S. Wave Imperiling Efforts in Pakistan, Officials Say

A new wave of anti-American sentiment in Pakistan has slowed the arrival of hundreds of U.S. civilian and military officials charged with implementing assistance programs, undermined cooperation in the fight against al-Qaeda and the Taliban, and put American lives at risk, according to officials from both countries.

At the highest levels, bilateral cooperation is said to be running smoothly. President Obama and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari met Thursday in New York with a gathering of Pakistan's international "friends." With Obama's enthusiastic support, the Senate on Thursday approved a $7.5 billion, five-year package that will triple nonmilitary aid to Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US has bribed the top civilian and military leadership with "aid" to get them to sign off on the war the US has declared against ordinary Pakistani citizens.

The people of Pakistan are smart people, and they know what's going on here.

Between a national government as collectively crooked as a dog's hind leg, coupled with a foreign government which has been given a license to kill with impunity, they have every right to be angry right now, both with Islamabad and DC.

Afghanistan general quits over disillusionment with government strategy

Major-General Andrew Mackay, a general who led the Afghanistan campaign has resigned over his disillusion in the direction of the Government’s strategy.

Major Gen Mackay’s time as the brigadier in charge of 52 Brigade in Helmand over the winter of 2007 was seen as an invigorating shake-up of the direction of the campaign and a template for future commanders. Upon arriving in Afghanistan, he was said to have been shocked that senior officers were "making it up as we go along".

A top White House official told Jewish organizational leaders in an off-the-record phone call Wednesday that the U.S. strategy was to "quickly" bring the report -- commissioned by the U.N. Human Rights Council and carried out by former South African Judge Richard Goldstone -- to its "natural conclusion" within the Human Rights Council and not to allow it to go further, Jewish participants in the call told JTA.

The Obama administration is ready to use the U.S. veto at the U.N. Security Council to deal with any other "difficulties" arising out of the report, the White House official said Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is called "aiding and abetting."

The US Government is an accessory after-the-fact to the war crimes committed by Israel.

Because of this, the US Government has lost the moral high ground and no longer has a right to question or criticize any other nation on the issue of "Human Rights."

We are the bad guys for this next world war, it would appear.

Military arresting G-20 protesters

Do you remember back during the abortive coup in Iran, how ABCNNBBCBS was bashing the Iranian police for arresting the protesters?

A Look at Strategic Oil Reserves – Who’s Buying Oil?

As the U.S. strategic petroleum reserve (SPR) approaches capacity (721.5 million barrels filled out of a total possible 727 million, and will be filled by January 2010), the federal government will fade out of the oil-buying business. Some bearish traders believe that this factor can weigh in on prices, since most petroleum stocks in the United States are government-held rather than private. Bullish traders have also used the filling of the Chinese SPR as a reason that oil should go much higher. ........

OH NO!!!! Iran starts building SECOND Power Plant!!!

Two officials told the AP that Iran revealed the existence of the second plant in a letter sent Monday to International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei.

IAEA spokesman Marc Vidricaire confirmed receipt of the letter, saying the agency was informed "that a new pilot fuel enrichment plant is under construction." The letter said that the plant would not enrich uranium beyond the 5 percent level suitable for civilian energy production. That would be substantially below the threshold of 90 percent or more needed for a weapon.

One in 10 inmates in Britain's jails is an ex-soldier, shock figures reveal

The Government was under fire for failing to support British troops returning from war today after figures revealed nearly one in 10 prisoners is an Armed Forces veteran.

Shocking research by the probation officers' union Napo shows some 8,500 former soldiers are currently in prison in England and Wales.

Another 12,000 have criminal convictions and are on the books of the Probation Service.

This means there are more than twice as many veterans in jail, on probation or on parole in the UK than the number of troops currently serving in Afghanistan.

Veterans in Scotland and Northern Ireland are not included, meaning the true figure is likely to be much higher.

Sarkozy sets deadline for Iran to suspend nuclear program

French President Nicolas Sarkozy set December as the deadline for Iran to suspend its nuclear program and warned Iran not to make "tragic mistake" in a television interview on Wednesday.

"There will be a deadline, which in my view is the month of December," Sarkozy told French television from New York where he is attending the 64th United Nations General Assembly session.

The Dog Ate Global Warming

Imagine if there were no reliable records of global surface temperature. Raucous policy debates such as cap-and-trade would have no scientific basis, Al Gore would at this point be little more than a historical footnote, and President Obama would not be spending this U.N. session talking up a (likely unattainable) international climate deal in Copenhagen in December.

Steel yourself for the new reality, because the data needed to verify the gloom-and-doom warming forecasts have disappeared.

Former Pharma Employee Speaks out about Vaccines

Informative interview of a former Big Pharma employee, who is now retired... now speaking out after realizing the ramifications of vaccination - FORCED or otherwise. Interview Date: Circa: Wed, 9 Jan 2002

[...]
Q: What is one thing you want the public to understand?

A: That the burden of proof in establishing the safety and efficacy of vaccines is on the people who manufacture and license them for public use. Just that. The burden of proof is not on you or me. And for proof you need well-designed long-term studies. You need extensive follow-up. You need to interview mothers and pay attention to what mothers say about their babies and what happens to them after vaccination. You need all these things. The things that are not there.

Q: The things that are not there.

A: Yes.

Human guinea pigs! Israel Forces People to Drink Uranium?

“Drinking juice laced with uranium is just one of many clinical trials allegedly conducted at an Israeli nuclear plant.
A human rights activist has accused the plant’s management of forcing its workers to take part in life-threatening experiments for the sake of nuclear developments.
They also claim the government and the military are involved in a cover-up of the tests.”

China hostile to Iran sanctions

China signalled its hostility to new sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme yesterday, even as western powers intensified their drive to increase pressure on Tehran.

A day after foreign ministers from the world's big powers - including China itself - called on Tehran to deliver a "serious response" to their offer of negotiations over the nuclear programme, Beijing highlighted its misgivings on a tougher stance. "China always believes that sanctions and pressure should not be an option and will not be conducive to the current diplomatic efforts over the Iran nuclear issue," said Jiang Yu, a foreign ministry spokeswoman.

U.N. climate meeting was propaganda: Czech president

Czech President Vaclav Klaus sharply criticized a U.N. meeting on climate change on Tuesday at which U.S. President Barack Obama was among the top speakers, describing it as propagandistic and undignified.

“It was sad and it was frustrating,” said Klaus, one of the world’s most vocal skeptics on the topic of global warming.

“It’s a propagandistic exercise where 13-year-old girls from some far-away country perform a pre-rehearsed poem,” he said. “It’s simply not dignified.”

Swine flu prompts changes to Mental Health Act

The government plans to rush through measures allowing people with suspected mental health issues to be quickly detained because of fears over staff shortages in any forthcoming swine flu outbreak, it has been revealed.

The temporary changes to the Mental Health Act, as laid out in an unusually short consultation lasting just one month, would mean it would only take one doctor, rather than two, to have a person sectioned and put on medication without their consent.

The measures could have a serious effect on the thousands of patients with psychiatric issues who currently live outside state care, meaning many could be detained against their will on the word of just one health professional.

A123 Systems (AONE): What Cramer didnt tell you about todays ‘Hot IPO’

It must be nice to be a huge conglomerate like General Electric. After all, you can drum up support for a meaningless war through one subsidiary (NBC/MSNBC) and then reap the financial benefits of that war through another. You can even invest in a company which has yet to turn a profit as your media network hypes up demand for that company’s IPO. How can you loose?

A123 Systems (AONE) made its public debut today and climbed 50% above the initial offering price after getting the thumbs up from NBC’s Mad Money host Jim Cramer who hailed it as the “Hottest IPO of 2009.”

Iranian bomb greatest threat to world: Netanyahu

Israel's prime minister told the United Nations Thursday that Iran's quest for nuclear weapons is the greatest danger the world faces.

"The greatest threat facing the world today is the marriage between religious fundamentalism and the weapons of mass destruction," Benjamin Netanyahu said in a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's obvious Netanyahu doesn't appreciate the bitter irony of his statements in that:

1. Iran has no weapons of mass destruction: every single IAEA inspection has borne this out.

2. Israel does have weapons of mass destruction, but refuses to sign the NPT, allowing those weapons to be inspected.

3. A very nationalistic, Zionist religious fundamentalism which colors Israeli politics to the point where you hear the claim that Eretz Israel (the true Nation of Israel) should exist from the Nile to the Euphrates!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This conflict, unfortunately, has the potential to become a regional one.

Outfoxing the 9/11 Coverup

When 9/11 Commission Chief Counsel, John Farmer, released his book, The Ground Truth, debunking his own 9/11 commission report and was supported by Chairman Thomas Kean and commission member Senator Bob Kerrey with no dissent, the cover story of 9/11 died.

This leaves us with these inescapable facts:

* We no longer have an official answer to questions about 9/11.
