Zionism; a Psychopathic Cancer of the Soul.

There’s a video that is being scrubbed from the internet. Just about everywhere you go, it’s gone. You generally see, “this video has been removed for violation of terms of service” or something similar. The only place I could find a copy was on a white pride site that I located through Google. ADL gremlins and assorted megaphonies in concert with various fellow travelers have all but removed this video from the usual locations. Unfortunately for their zealous efforts, concerned individuals have retained hard copies and are popping them up here and there. I was searching for some time but this was the only place I could locate it for the moment.

This video pretty much tells the tale; a bunch of drunken, American, Zionist Jews in Israel giving you that ‘in vino veritas’ thing.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Flashback: Osiraq

When Israeli intelligence confirmed Iraq's intention of producing weapons at Osiraq, the Israeli government decided to attack. According to some estimates, Iraq in 1981 was still as much as five to ten years away from the ability to build a nuclear weapon. Others estimated at that time that Iraq might get its first such weapon within a year or two.

Those who approved of the raid argued that the Israelis had engaged in an act of legitimate self-defense justifiable under international law and under Article 51 of the charter of the United Nations. Critics contended that the Israeli claims about Iraq's future capabilities were hasty and ill-considered and asserted that the idea of anticipatory self-defense was rejected by the community of states.

Hondurans pour into the streets to demand Zelaya's return -- `We are more determined than ever to overthrow this terrible coup'

Sure enough, the crowd made it to the airport peacefully and waited patiently for Zelaya's plane to arrive. Suddenly, a plane flew in low and circled around the airport. The crowd went wild, cheering and jumping up and down, but became angry when they saw that the plane was not able to land. Military vehicles and soldiers were on the runway, making it impossible for the pilot to maneuvre safely.

Ocean temperatures: The new bluff in alarmism

The alarmists have abandoned air temperatures as a measure of global temperature, because the air temperature graphs are just too hard to argue with (like the second figure below, from the Skeptics Handbook). Instead they’ve switched to ocean temperatures, which they often disguise as ocean heat content (a huge number like 15×10²² Joules sounds much more scary than the warming it implies of 0.003° C/year).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And once again, we find that hard data shows the Earth is cooling, and that the people pushing for the carbon tax know it.

Thus the loudest arguments against greater transparency are likely to come from those friends, and understandably so.”

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY USES FOREIGN AID TO SCUTTLE HUMAN RIGHTS, CIVIL LIBERTIES

Amr is not an isolated case. Since the establishment of the American-backed regime in Ramallah, under the supervision of the American security commissioner, Gen. Keith Dayton, as many as eight Palestinians were either unlawfully killed or tortured to death at the hands of PA security personnel.

Today, hundreds of mostly political activists are languishing in PA detention centers, the majority of whom without charge or trial. And when trials do take place, they are usually conducted in clear violation of internationally accepted procedure.

Israel deports foreign activists headed to Gaza

Israel on Monday deported a former U.S. congresswoman, a Nobel peace prize laureate and other activists who were arrested and jailed after trying to break the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli navy commandeered their boat last week as it tried to sail from Cyprus to Gaza. It was the latest in a series of trips by activists trying to bring attention to the blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt on the territory after the Islamic militant Hamas seized power there two years ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Islamic militant Hamas seized power there two years ago."

I guess AP just cannot resist the temptation to propagandize on behalf of Israel. HAMAS did not "seize power." They won the election.

Iran's top leader warns West over alleged meddling

Iran's supreme leader warned Western governments on Monday of a "negative impact" on relations over what he called their meddling in Iran's post-election riots, state television reported.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's comments reflect continued efforts by the regime to blame Western powers such as the U.S. and Britain — not internal anger — for unrest following the country's disputed presidential election. They also come one day after the American vice president said the U.S. is still open to negotiating with Iran over its nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Nuclear program" = "power station." Even the newly elected head of the IAEA is saying that Iran is not building weapons.

Will Supreme Court allow unlimited corporate contributions to election campaigns?

The most troubling part of the court’s action is the brave new world of politics it could usher in. Auto companies that receive multibillion-dollar bailouts could spend vast sums to re-elect the same officials who hand them the money. If Exxon Mobil or Wal-Mart wants something from a member of Congress, it could threaten to spend as much as it takes to defeat him or her in the next election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporations will argue that AIPAC is already allowed to operate in just this fashion.

The Global Warming Scam

Now then, looking at Carbon Dioxide, we find that only .117% of atmospheric carbon dioxide is directly attributable to human technology such as automobiles. .117% is a rather small amount. If we were to measure out .117% of a football field, it comes out to 4.212 inches, barely long enough to get off the touchdown line.

So, if humans ceased all technological activity, we would still see 99.883% of the carbon dioxide remain in the atmosphere, assuming all other factors remain stable (which is, of course, silly.)

Current Recession Is a Severe Credit Bust of Depression-Era Magnitude

There's a big difference between inventory-driven recessions and credit-driven recessions. An inventory recession is caused by a mismatch between supply and demand. It's the result of overcapacity and under-utilization which can only work itself out over time as inventories are pared back and demand builds. Credit-driven recessions are a different story altogether. They typically last twice as long as and can precipitate financial crises. The current recession is a severe credit bust of Depression-era magnitude.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government took trillions of dollars from the American people and gave it to the banks so they could loan it back to the American people at interest. And STILL there is a credit crunch because the banks just put that money into their own pockets.

Do they WANT the economy to crash and drive the general population into abject poverty?

Global warming cover up?

Global warming may not be occurring primarily because of carbon dioxide emissions, according to a report suppressed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Alan Carlin, who has worked for the EPA for more than 35 years and has a bachelor’s degree in physics and a doctorate degree in economics from Massachusetts Institution of Technology, co-wrote a report for “Endangerment Analysis for Greenhouse Gas Emissions under the Clean Air Act.” According to the report, there are some inconsistencies with the theory that humans have caused global warming because of increased carbon dioxide emissions.

Breaking: FBI Arrest Opens Goldman-Sachs' Pandora's Box

A couple of months ago, we also learned through Zero Hedge that Goldman had profited greatly from a sweetheart deal with the federal government concerning a new program instituted by the Feds known as "The Supplemental Liquidity Provider" Program ("SLP"), launched this past Thanksgiving, which was supposed to provide "market liquidity" (i.e.: an ongoing, active market) for selected groups of 500 different NYSE stocks per SLP participant. As Durden pointed out to all who were interested, it certainly appeared to him that Goldman was the only active participant in the program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A week back we reported on the NYSE's strange comment that Goldman's program trading activities were exempt from reporting.

McKinney Back in U.S. from Israeli Jail

Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was scheduled to return from Tel Aviv on a flight that landed in New York at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday.

McKinney and a group of 20 were detained last week by the Israeli Navy while they were trying to deliver humanitarian supplies to Gaza. They were accused of violating Israel's blockade. McKinney was detained because she refused to sign a document acknowledging it.

David Josue, a close associate of McKinney, told 11Alive News, she refused to sign the document because it was written in Hebrew and she did not know what she was being asked to sign.

Dell accidentally sells 140,000 monitors for $15 a pop

Taiwan consumer regulators have ordered Dell to honor an online pricing error that offered 19-inch LCD monitors for only NT$500 (US$15, £9).

News of the supposed bargain spread quickly over the internet when it was posted June 25 at 11pm. Within the eight hours before it was removed, more than 26,000 customers placed orders for nearly 140,000 monitors, according to Taiwan's Consumer Protection Commission.

The agency said in a statement (in Chinese) it received 471 complaints after Dell corrected the listing to the intended price of NT$4,800 (US$148, £90).

Ex-Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara Dies at 93

He was 93, and according to the news agency, had been in failing health for some time.

Biden: US won’t stop Israel attack on Iran + transcript

Vice-President Joe Biden told ABCs This Week on Sunday that the US wouldn’t stand in the way of Israel if they decided Iran was an existential threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this existential threat may be no more real than Saddam's "nookular" bombs is apparently not a factor.

And something tells me that as Israeli (really US) bombs and missiles rain down on Iran, that Iran's own fears for is existence will NOT be seen by Biden as justification for a counter attack.

The real problem here is that Israel cannot attack just the power station. They have top attack all of Iran's military bases to reduce the threat of a counter attack, or they have to admit having nuclear weapons and warn Iran off retaliation that way, which will then open up Israel to questions of why it bombed yet another harmless power station if Israel itself is the one covertly building nuclear weapons underneath the Dimona reactor complex.

In any event, my concern with Israel's unprovoked attacks on their neighb9ors is that we, the already impoverished American taxpayers, are being forced to pay for all these weapons, and worse, the lives or our young men and women in uniform will be put at risk protecting Israel from any Iranian counter-attack.

Hidden in the cap and tax climate change legislation that the House passed last week is a MANDATE that all residential, commercial, and government buildings will have to meet certain “green” guidelines.

Day of Reckoning for California and Ultimately for All of America

If California’s creditors had a say in the issuance of i.o.u.’s, Sacramento officials might be able to deny they’re in default by implying mutual consent. If the i.o.u.’s were as good as cash, Sacramento might also deny the D-word. If all major financial institutions accepted California i.o.u.’s, that might also help Sacramento justify a continued denial of default. If, as in past episodes, California’s budget mess were mostly due to a political snafu, it could be argued that the i.o.u.’s are merely a temporary stop-gap. But that’s clearly not the case either.

In Defense of Neo-Con Bashing

It’s actually true that neocon bashing is a bit on the tiresome side. That said, I think it really has to be understood as a vital social necessity. Adherents of a deranged and sociopoathic “neocon” conception of America’s role in the world continue to be tremendously influential in our society.

This is a dangerous situation. In the United States, the opposition party is always one ill-timed recession or political scandal from taking power. So a set of ideas that dominates one such party is something you need to keep a watchful eye on, no matter how marginalized that party may seem at any particular moment.

Unfortunately, though, it ended up revealing a Michelle Obama that is an angry, arrogant, martinet that isn’t aware that “first lady” is an honorary title that has no proper, Constitutional role and is not an elected position with legal, legitimate powers of its own.

As Israel gears up for war, US divide appears

As Israel continues its efforts to portray Iran as a regime hell-bent on a nuclear war, top officials in the White House and the US military express contradictory stances on a potential Israeli attack on Iran.

The top US military commander, Admiral Mike Mullen, warned on Sunday that any military strike against Iran would have "unintended consequences".

Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Fox News on Sunday that any attack against Iran would be "very destabilizing."

"I've been one who has been concerned about a strike on Iran for some time, because it could be very destabilizing, and it is the unintended consequences of that which aren't predictable," he was quoted by AFP as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On the contrary; Israel's PLANNED goal for an attack on Iran is to trick the US and Russia into a mutually destructive world war that will leave Israel and its nuclear arsenal in control of the Mideast oil fields, which means economically in control of most of the world.

The whole world will be Palestine after that!

Letter from an Israeli Jail, by Cynthia McKinney

Zionism has surely run out of its last legitimacy if this is what it does to people who believe so deeply in human rights for all that they put their own lives on the line for someone else's children. Israel is the fullest expression of Zionism, but if Israel fears for its security because Gaza's children have crayons then not only has Israel lost its last shred of legitimacy, but Israel must be declared a failed state.

I am facing deportation from the state that brought me here at gunpoint after commandeering our boat. I was brought to Israel against my will. I am being held in this prison because I had a dream that Gaza's children could color & paint, that Gaza's wounded could be healed, and that Gaza's bombed-out houses could be rebuilt.

A Thought to Ponder On the Fourth of July

1. The Constitution of the United States is under attack.

2. The United States Government is not the United States -- WE ARE -- they work for us.

3. War has, for thousands of years, always been about land and resources which equates to money and power. It's all about salesmanship. In order to stay in conflict you must sell the war. In order to sell a war you need an enemy. Real is best but perceived will suffice.

4. You can support and feel for our troops while denouncing war. They are two different things.

5. The worldwide ruling class is trying to breakdown our country and there are those who supposedly work for us who are helping.

6. "The Constitution of the United States" is the only thing that stands in their way.

Virtually every tactic which the article describes the Iranians as using has been used by the U.S. during the War on Terror, while several tactics authorized by Bush officials (waterboarding, placing detainees in coffin-like boxes, hypothermia) aren't among those the article claims are used by the Iranians. Nonetheless, "torture" appears to be a perfectly fine term for The New York Times to use to describe what the Iranians do, but one that is explicitly banned to describe what the U.S. did.

B'naii B'riith Umbrella group Declares Censorship WAR

In this bizarre world, a Senior reporter of a South African newspaper can move to Australia from Israel and begin to make demands about "What is acceptable and what is not" for Australians in an Australian society, a society to which he has as much as a close connection with as mainstream religions have a connection with peace and tolerance.

Please listen carefully as this man makes it very clear:

"THERE IS NO FREE SPEECH"

and anything he deems offensive suddenly becomes illegal by law under his twisted definitions.

Hear his words as he clearly states that he has his own mandate given to him by his fanatical supremacist religious groups to eliminate anything he wishes to.
Under any other name this would vigilantism.

9 Israelis suspected of scamming millions from U.S. pensioners

The Tel Aviv police fraud squad arrested on Sunday nine Israelis on suspicion of netting millions of dollars from U.S. pensioners in a so-called Nigerian scam.

Isn't it more correctly called the "Israeli" scam?

The Battlestar Galactica, Michael Jackson 4th of July.

Apart from what you might suspect, I’ve got nothing against Michael Jackson. For a short period he displayed a couple of fairly remarkable, terrestrial abilities. The material was pedestrian but the choreography was compelling… except for the message in the movements. It was mostly comedy though, watching a hyperkinetic tooth fairy pretend to be an urban gang leader. That’s how it is in this world, pretend to be something you’re not and then get dipped into sealing wax and pressed against the parchment of life with a hot iron. Made authentic, so to speak; Madonna has a lot of that manufactured appeal, except in her case she can’t do any of the things Michael could but that doesn’t matter either.

Washington Post publisher apologizes for plan to hold paid dinners with officials, journalists

The Washington Post's publisher apologized to readers Sunday for a plan to charge business leaders and lobbyists for intimate dinner discussions with government officials and the newspaper's journalists.

A flier surfaced last week promoting a plan to charge $25,000 to sponsor one of a series of dinner parties that would include off-the-record conversations with Post journalists and access to Washington insiders. The series was canceled Thursday.

Biden: `We misread how bad the economy was'

Vice President Joe Biden said the Obama administration "misread how bad the economy was" but stands by its stimulus package and believes the plan will create more jobs as the pace of its spending picks up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can anyone explain to me how these politicians, with their huge staffs and research budgets are always misreading the situation while the bloggers, operating on loose change found under seat cushions, seem to have the accurate view?

The Quiet Coup

The crash has laid bare many unpleasant truths about the United States. One of the most alarming, says a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, is that the finance industry has effectively captured our government—a state of affairs that more typically describes emerging markets, and is at the center of many emerging-market crises. If the IMF’s staff could speak freely about the U.S., it would tell us what it tells all countries in this situation: recovery will fail unless we break the financial oligarchy that is blocking essential reform. And if we are to prevent a true depression, we’re running out of time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We need leaders with the courage of an Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, or John Kennedy.

We don;t have that.

But it is what we need in this crisis.

Obama Russia Newspaper Interview: Strengthen Human Rights, Rule Of Law

President Barack Obama said strengthening human rights and the rule of law in Russia should be a part of the much-heralded "reset" in U.S.-Russian relations, according to an interview with an embattled Russian opposition newspaper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, from a guy who is having crafted an obscene executive order, allowing for for something as fundamentally anti-American as indefinite detention without trial?!?

Excuse me, but that collective, continuous loud thud you are hearing is being created by the founding fathers, turning over in their graves at warp speed!

Western Media Persists in Propaganda About Iraq’s Purported WMD

The mainstream media is reporting that former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein told his FBI interrogators after his capture that he lied about having weapons of mass destruction (WMD) because he feared Iran. But there’s just one problem with this claim: Saddam Hussein never claimed to have WMD, but , as everybody knows, repeatedly denied that this was so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media stood shoulder to shoulder with the US Government as the US Government lied us all into a war of conquest. They had plenty of opportunity to do their real job and report on the obvious lies in company with the blogs. But the corporate media sold their souls for a free ride on air Force 1 and their name on the "A" party lists in DC.

And now the corporate media are trapped. They cannot go back and admit they helped the government lie us into a war that has already claimed so many thousands of our young people. They have no choice but to try to bluff their way through; to lie their way out of a mess they lied themselves into.

But, this is a new world. The image of an industry, a company, a politician, and indeed even that of a nation is no longer the illusion crafted by public relations people. The corporate media have lied themselves out of their ability to control the minds of the world. People use the internet to find out the facts and the internet does not suffer spin and propaganda (despite efforts by PR companies to the contrary).

The blogs see the world as it really is, not as the masters of delusions would present it.

But the corporate media cannot change sides. We are way past that point. So they are fighting a holding action; trying to prop up the lies, while their industry collapses around them from its own rot and decay.

They lied. They died. This pathetic attempt to re-sell the deception is the start of the death rattle.

Six police hurt in clashes at Italian anti-US military base demo

Six policemen were hurt in clashes late Saturday with demonstrators at a rally of more than 3,000 people against the 500-million-dollar enlargement of a US military base in Italy, police said.

Demonstrators who have regularly cut their way through barbed wire guarding the site cried "No arms here" and "We won't be a rear base for the killing of Afghan kids."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While I abhor the violence, the sentiment expressed in the statement "We won't be a rear base for the killing of Afghan kids." is bang spot on.

And the hell of it is, we cannot possibly win in Afghanistan. The previous administration, followed by the Obama administration, has picked a war to which they cannot commit enough troop strength to win without resurrecting the draft, and even that may not be enough.

The old Soviet Union tried and failed with 500,000 troops on the ground; and we're trying to win this war with barely over 10% of that troop strength?!?!?

Insane Sarah Palin, Late At Night On July 4, Threatens To Sue Entire Internet, Via Twitter

Honestly, this is what Sarah Palin twatted on Saturday Night, July 4th, Independence Day, in America.

Her link goes to (of course) Scientologist nut and sub-literate weirdo Greta Van Susteren’s blog on FoxNews.com, where Greta has helpfully (?) posted seven pages of legal threats from Palin’s lawyers, although you can’t actually read beyond the first vague page of whining bullshit, because Greta/Fox can’t figure out how to operate the Internet.

But, from other websites, we gather Palin’s lawyers plan lawsuits against MSNBC, the New York Times, the Huffington Post, the Washington Post, individual bloggers in Alaska, and other such anti-Palin forces such as “rain on your wedding day” and static cling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I smell blood in the water! The lady doth protest WAY too much.

Biden: ‘We misread how bad the economy was’

“The truth is, we and everyone else misread the economy,” confessed Bide

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Misread", my astrolabe!

All you had to do, Joe, was actually come down from your ivory tower, and talk to any small business owner or working person, struggling to keep the lights on and the bills paid. That would have given you a clue as to just how bad it is for most of the people in this country.

Oh, and continuing to fund those wars without end (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and probably soon Iran) might have been looked on as "double plus ungood", had you stopped for a moment to think about it.

And one more observation, Joe: We the People are at the end of our financial ropes, and are not an infinitely endless source of taxes. Smart people (particularly with skills and kids) are seriously thinking about voting with their feet right now, and getting the heck out of Dodge. There has to be some country on this planet where people actually benefit from the taxes they pay, and the US is certainly not one of those places at this time in its history!

Biden: US not stand in Israel's way on Iran

Vice President Joe Biden seemed to give Israel a green light for military action to eliminate Iran's nuclear threat, saying the U.S. "cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Israel wants to attack Iran, fine.

My problem is that the US Government, owned as it is by Israel, will respond to Iran's inevitable counter-attack against Israel by sending more of your money to Israel to pay for the weapons, and worse, condemning your children in uniform to a bloody death in yet another war for Eratz Israel!

So, you can fight against the tyrant now, or fight for the tyrant from now on.

There is no third choice.

Obama's Trip: A Mission to Reshape US Image

Washington - Determined to change the way the world views the United States, Barack Obama is onto his next foreign mission: rebuilding relations with Russia, proving to global leaders that America is serious about climate change, and outlining his vision for Africa, his father's birthplace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Obama has missed the new reality. In the age of the internet, image is no longer something that can be manufactured and manipulated with the same ease of a half century ago. America is not seen as what Obama says it is, but as it actually exists.

And America at the dawn of the 21st century is a nation with a bankrupt economy, a morally bankrupt leadership, and rigged elections.

The world sees America not as Obama wishes it to be but as it really is; a nation that tortures, a nation that lies to its own people into unprovoked wars of conquest against helpless targets, a nation of overthrowers and usurpers, a hypocritical nation that fails to live up to the high ideals it continually proclaims as guidance for the rest of the world, and the only nation to actually use nuclear weapons of mass destruction against the civilians of another country.

The history of America over the last century is the history of a leadership willing to sacrifice any and all for the attainment of vast personal wealth.

I hope Obama does not mistake polite silence for gullibility!

Netanyahu reaffirms commitment to racism and expansionism – thanks to US tax dollars

Saree Makdisi argues that if Israel is ever to agree to anything for the Palestinians other than “an amorphous entity lacking a definite territory, not allowed to control its own borders or airspace, shorn of any vestige of sovereignty ... and permanently disarmed”, then Americans must demand an end to their leaders’ indulgence of Israel.

Biden: U.S. won't stop Israeli strike on Iran

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday that the Obama administration would not stand in Israel's way should the latter chooses to take military action to eliminate Iran's nuclear threat.

Israel has the right to determine its own course of action with regard to the Iranian nuclear threat regardless of what the Obama administration chooses to do, Biden told ABC reporter George Stephanopoulos.

When asked whether the Obama administration would restrain Israeli military action against Iran, Biden responded: "Israel can determine for itself - it's a sovereign nation - what's in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else."

India Joins Russia, China in Questioning U.S. Dollar Dominance

July 4 (Bloomberg) -- Suresh Tendulkar, an economic adviser to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, said he is urging the government to diversify its $264.6 billion foreign-exchange reserves and hold fewer dollars.

“The major part of Indian reserves is in dollars -- that is something that’s a problem for us,” Tendulkar, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, said in an interview yesterday in Aix-en-Provence, France, where he was attending an economic conference.

Singh is preparing to join leaders from the Group of Eight industrialized nations -- the U.S., Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Canada and Russia -- at a summit in Italy next week which is due to tackle the global economy. China and Brazil will also send representatives to the summit.

9 Israelis suspected of scamming millions from U.S. pensioners

The Tel Aviv police fraud squad arrested on Sunday nine Israelis on suspicion of netting millions of dollars from U.S. pensioners in a so-called Nigerian scam.

Police raided an office in the city, which is suspected to have been the nerve center of the dodgy enterprise. The defendants, all in their 20s and 30s, allegedly phoned American pensioners, told them they had won the lottery and asked them for a fee of several thousand dollars for the transfer of the prize money, which in fact never existed.

Last week, it was reported that the American agencies had urged Israel Police to step up the extradition procedure of another ten Israelis who were suspected of scamming $2 million in similar means.
