FBI formally closes protracted anthrax case

After seven frustrating years probing the deadly 2001 anthrax mailings, the FBI formally closed the case Friday, concluding a mentally unhinged government researcher acted alone.

Many details of the case have been known, but newly released FBI documents paint a fuller portrait of Dr. Bruce Ivins as a troubled scientist whose career was teetering toward failure at the time the letters were sent. As the U.S. responded to the mailings, his work was given new importance by the government and he was even honored for his efforts on anthrax.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FBI has attempted to blame three different men for the anthrax Attacks, Dr. Steven Hatfill, Dr. Ayaad Assaad, and finally Dr. Bruce Ivins.

In both the Hatfill and Assaaad cases, the FBI was eventually forced to concede the men were innocent (wrecking Hatfill's life in the process). When Bruce Ivins died and was no longer able to defend hinmself, the FBI said "That'stheguycaseclosedthankyouforcomingtothepressconference" and slammed the door.

But...

As hard as the FBI pushed to lay the blame for the Anthrax letters on Dr. Steven Hatfill, Dr. Ayaad Assaad, and Dr. Bruce Ivins, the FBI worked equally hard to ignore a real suspect, Dr. Philip Zack, the one man actually caught by the security systems entering the lab where the anthrax used in the letters was kept, without authorization and after losing his job over a racially-motivated attack on the above Dr. Assaad, who is Egyptian and hated by the Jewish Dr. Zack.

But the FBI avoided Dr. Zack entirely.

Why?

Because he is Jewish? It should be noted that Hatfill's chief accuser and author of his torment was Dr. Barbara Rosenberg.

One thing is clear. The actual letters included with the anthrax were written to look like they were mailed by semi-literate fanatical Arab muslims. Now that we know that the anthrax itself came from a US Government lab, and that Drrs. Hatfill, Assaad, and Ivins are not semi-literate Arabs, it is obvious that the one thing the anthrax investigation does prove beyond a shadow of a doubt is that there was a conspiracy to frame Arabs for terror attacks inside the United States.

Activist's case will test U.S. anti-terrorism law

Ralph Fertig hardly resembles a terrorist, but the soft-spoken 79-year-old pacifist and human rights activist from Los Angeles might well qualify as one under the government's strong anti-terrorism law.

He is the lead plaintiff in a Supreme Court case to be heard next week that will test whether speaking out on behalf of an oppressed foreign minority -- represented by a group that's been deemed a terrorist organization by the U.S. -- can result in a long prison term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a clear First Amendment case and needs to fast-track to the US Supreme Court.

Frustrated Owner Bulldozes Home Ahead Of Foreclosure

Hoskins said the Internal Revenue Service placed liens on his carpet store and commercial property on state Route 125 after his brother, a one-time business partner, sued him.

The bank claimed his home as collateral, Hoskins said, and went after both his residential and commercial properties.

Hoskins said he'd gotten a $170,000 offer from someone to pay off the house, but the bank refused, saying they could get more from selling it in foreclosure.

Check out that online poll in the story. As of now, 77% of the respondents agree with what he did.

US school comes out fighting over webcam spy claim

There are no further details of what this improper behaviour might constitute – and readers must draw their own conclusions as to the sort of behaviour a teenage school student might indulge in, if left alone in his bedroom with a PC.

However, what startled and then outraged Blake’s parents was the evidence provided: a photo of their son engaged in the "improper behaviour" cited, taken not on any friend’s camera – but by the webcam on the free school laptop.

Subsequent investigation revealed that this webcam could be – and in this case, was – activated remotely by persons working for the school.

...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS!

What made them think the student's laptop had been stolen? Obviously, the student didn't report it missing.

Re: "There are no further details of what this improper behaviour might constitute – and readers must draw their own conclusions as to the sort of behaviour a teenage school student might indulge in, if left alone in his bedroom with a PC."

If the school caught the boy jerking off to "Bitches Gone Bananas" than the image they captured and showed the boy's parents constitutes production and distribution of child porn.

Young students who send naked pictures of themselves to their friends get nailed for child porn. Let us see the same draconian steps applied to the teachers!

Traficant: If I Was Elected, I'd Kick The IRS In The Crotch 'Real Good'

Our favorite ex-con ex-Congressman Jim Traficant (D-OH) appeared on Hardball tonight just to make everyone's day a little brighter with a graphic description of what he'd do if he successfully ran for office.

"I want to get the IRS," Traficant said. "Kick them in the crotch real good." He said he'd also work to repeal the 16th Amendment, which gives Congress the power to collect income tax.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, Jim, all you have to do is convene a Congressional Investigation into whether it was ever actually ratified. If Judge James C. Fox is correct, there is no need to repeal that which was illegal to start with.

The British anger at Israel would be a positive signal in the right direction if we were not aware of British Foreign Secretary David Miliband investing enormous efforts trying to amend Britain’s ethical stand just to appease Tzipi Livni, Ehud Barak and other Israeli leaders. The British Foreign Ministry’s reaction could almost be deemed a revelation, were we able to forget that just five weeks before Israel launched its lethal criminal attack against Gaza, David Miliband visited Sderot, an Israeli town on the Gaza border to offer his support. "No country can accept constant bombardment of its citizens”, Miliband told the people of Sderot. He then continued “Israel should, above all, seek to protect its own citizens".

More Mega-Snowstorms Coming -- Global Warming to Blame?

As snowstorm-ravaged states on the U.S. East Coast dig out, scientists say the past week's "Snowpocalypse" could be a taste of harsh winters to come—and that, strangely enough, global warming may be to blame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"War is Peace."

"Freedom is Slavery."

"Ignorance is Strength."

"Freezing is Global Warming."

(Ahem)

The amount of water the atmosphere is directly related to temperature. That is why relative humidity is always based on the current temperature, to measure how much water is in the air compared to how much it could hold. Thus, if water content remains the same, but temperature goes up, the relative humidity goes down.

The warmer the atmosphere is, the more water it can hold, and the less precipitation you get. Yes, warming will drive more water into the air, but warming means more of it will stay there.

In contrast, when the atmosphere cools, it holds LESS water. The colder it gets, the more moisture precipitates out as rain, and of course when it gets cold enough, that precipitation becomes snow.

This idea that global warming leads to freezing weather is not science, it is science fiction, stolen from the plot line to the movie "The Day after Tomorrow."

Iran not producing weapon-grade uranium: IAEA

ran has not converted the low-grade uranium that it has produced into weapon-grade uranium, inspectors belonging to the International Atomic Energy Agency have said.

The Austrian Press Agency quoted an IAEA expert as saying that the uranium substances that Iran has produced at its Natanz enrichment facility have been carefully recorded and remote cameras have been installed to supervise part of the stockpile.

“If the Iranians intend to transport these uranium substances to a secret location for further processing, agency’s inspectors will find out,” he said.

The expert added that “so far, Iran has carried out good cooperation with us in relevant verifications”.

Report: Real estate could bury banks

While small banks far outside Columbus are getting clobbered by commercial real estate losses, Central Ohio’s community lenders appear to be weathering the storm.

A Feb. 11 report from the Congressional Oversight Panel studying the banking bailout and financial services regulation predicted that a gathering wave of commercial real estate loan defaults could jeopardize the stability of many banks over the next few years while battering a hobbled economy. It said the downturn could be acute among community banks because they are “proportionately even more exposed than their larger counterparts” to commercial real estate loans.

Slump in Tax Revenue Creates State of Siege

U.S. states face a "lost decade," says Raymond Scheppach, head of the National Governors Association. The problem is a broken fiscal model exposed by the recession, and likely to extend the pain beyond the downturn's official conclusion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The flaw which destroyed the US is the private central bank issuing a fiat currency.

The Founding Fathers of this country fought a war to rid themselves not just of King George III but the private Bank of England and its "Currency Act" which plunged the colonies into economic hardship to enrich the private owners of the bank.

The Founding Fathers created a truly revolutionary (for the time) economy by allowing the government to issue all currency and fixing the value of that currency to silver and gold so that bankers could not play the nefarious games with which the colonists were all too familiar.

But after two previous (and failed) private banks, the USD Congress illegally sold the American people into the bondage of yet a third privately owned central bank allowed to issue worthless paper money as the public currency, and at interest. I say 'illegally' because the Congress that passed the Federal Reserve act lacked a quorum. It was (and remains) a clear violation of the rules of Congress to transact business without a quorum.

The critical flaw of the Reserve Banking System is that the moment that first Federal Reserve Note goes into circulation, more money is owed the banking system than is actually in existence.

The same system brought down Roman Empire.

And here we are stuck in the fall of the American Empire.

Climategate: the official cover-up continues

If there’s one thing that stinks even more than Climategate, it’s the attempts we’re seeing everywhere from the IPCC and Penn State University to the BBC to pretend that nothing seriously bad has happened, that “the science” is still “settled”, and that it’s perfectly OK for the authorities go on throwing loads more of our money at a problem that doesn’t exist.

ACLU buys into false premise

In its ever-expanding intrusion into everything that used to be “private,” the TSA has decided that it is now going to start “randomly swabbing passengers’ hands at checkpoints and airport gates to test them for traces of explosives.” Presumably, they think terrorists aren’t going to wash their hands.

The fact that the TSA has done this isn’t surprising to me. When you give one entity a legal monopoly over any field, in this case airline security, their instinct is to expand more and more. There are no checks on them. They have a legal monopoly and can do whatever they want.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"See? You can't fire me. I have to swab hands!!!!!"

School used student laptop webcams to spy on them at school and home

If true, these allegations are about as creepy as they come. I don't know about you, but I often have the laptop in the room while I'm getting dressed, having private discussions with my family, and so on. The idea that a school district would not only spy on its students' clickstreams and emails (bad enough), but also use these machines as AV bugs is purely horrifying.

Debra Medina, Glenn Beck, 911 Truth and the Importance of Private Property

I’ve been paying particular attention to the governor’s race in Texas of late, particularly the Republican primary for that position. There’s a woman running, a true champion of freedom. She understands the concept of liberty. She embraces it. She offers real solutions to real problems, problems the vast majority of the common folk can see in the corrupt establishment. She offers the free market solutions we all want, a pulling back of government intrusion in the lives of ordinary citizens and a chance to once again live as freemen in the legacy our founding fathers left for us.

The corporate globalist authoritarians must hate her.

FLASHBACK - IAEA Conceals Evidence Iran Nuke Docs Were Forged

The International Atomic Energy Agency says its present objective regarding Iran is to try to determine whether the intelligence documents purportedly showing a covert Iranian nuclear weapons programme from 2001 to 2003 are authentic or not. The problem, according to its reports, is that Iran refuses to help clarify the issue.

But the IAEA has refused to acknowledge publicly significant evidence brought to its attention by Iran that the documents were fabricated, and has made little, if any, effort to test the authenticity of the intelligence documents or to question officials of the governments holding them, IPS has learned.

Police: Scam Targets Business

In the first incident, the owner of Kozy Nail and Tanning on Van Dyke Avenue told police someone who identified themselves as the owner of the strip mall called on Monday saying there was a health code violation repair that needed to take place.

Owner Stephen Ngulen said the caller told him to give $400 to a man who would be coming by to make the repair.

Ngulen said he told the caller he only had $200, and that a short time later a man identified only as Joe showed up and was given the money.

Ngulen said he had tried to contact the owner of the strip mall to verify the payment, but was unable to reach him until after the repairman's visit.

The strip mall owner called Ngulen back Wednesday and it was discovered that the whole incident had been a scam.

FLASHBACK - Stuff and Nonsense

Risen reports that the CIA recruited and sent to Iraq – as spies – more than 30 relatives of Iraqi scientists alleged by the neo-crazies to be involved in nuke and chem-bio weapon programs. According to Risen, all of them – including American anesthesiologist Sawsan Alhaddad of Cleveland – returned to tell the CIA that all of those programs had been killed years before and never resuscitated.

But, of course, the CIA already knew that. In 1995, Saddam's son-in-law, Gen. Kamel, the man in charge of all Saddam's nuke and chem-bio programs, had defected to Jordan, and told the CIA and the UN Special Commission that every trace of those programs had been destroyed, either during the Gulf War, or – at Kamel's direction – in the immediate aftermath.

In Kabul, doubts about the Marjah offensive

"I don’t think this district is strategically very important for bringing peace and security to the whole country," she told me. "The Taliban are very scattered, it’s not an organized war. It’s not going to work with such a massive military operation."

Out on the streets of Kabul, there is, at best, cautious optimism. Jaweed, a university student, told me he hopes the Taliban are defeated, but worries about what will happen when the fighting stops. "I am not one hundred percent sure about this offensive, because our security forces aren’t up to defending the country properly."

His concern is that, despite the coalition’s pledge to hold on to Marjah, the Taliban will simply re-emerge when attention turns elsewhere.

Israel's Mossad in spotlight after Hamas murder

Interpol has issued arrest notices for 11 suspects in the killing of a top Hamas commander, Mahmud al-Mabhuh, last month.

US-NATO Aggression to ‘Win Hearts and Minds’

Anyone aspiring to write or edit textbooks for the Department of Education should study U.S. news-wire reports. Rarely will you see imperial aggression being so expertly spun into peaceful liberation within the context of U.S. exceptionalism.

[I]n the revised U.S. war strategy, the fight against the insurgents is as important as winning the allegiance and confidence of Afghan citizens. For American soldiers here, their days are often a mix of winning hearts and minds and fighting a determined enemy.

Did Britain know about Mossad hit? Israeli agent claims MI6 was tipped off

MI6 was tipped off that Israeli agents were going to carry out an 'overseas operation' using fake British passports, it was claimed last night.

The tip-off did not say who the target would be or even where the hit squad would be in action.

But the claim from a credible source that the Government had some prior knowledge of the abuse of UK passports will strengthen calls for ministers to come clean about what they knew and when.

The big chill is set to tighten its grip over the weekend as forecasters say we could be on for the coldest February in nearly a quarter of a century.

Temperatures in the first two weeks of the month averaged just 2.1c (35.8f) - meaning Britain has been far colder than Vancouver, where the organisers of the Winter Olympics have been forced to truck in snow.

U.S. government wants farmers to spread toxic powder from coal plant scrubbers on their food crop fields

The federal government is pushing farmers to use a toxic byproduct of the coal burning industry to fertilize and loosen the soil in their crop fields. Initiated under the Bush administration as a beneficial use for the substance, efforts by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continue to advocate for the widespread use of synthetic gypsum in agriculture.

Called flue gas desulfurization gypsum, or FGD gypsum, this synthetic powder is produced by coal plant "scrubbers" that remove sulfur dioxide from plant emissions. Sulfur dioxide is the chemical that causes acid rain to occur.

Social Security Will Fall To Obama Before The Taliban Do

Hank Paulson, the Gold Sacks bankster/US Treasury Secretary, who deregulated the financial system, caused a world crisis that wrecked the prospects of foreign banks and governments, caused millions of Americans to lose retirement savings, homes, and jobs, and left taxpayers burdened with multi-trillions of dollars of new US debt, is still not in jail. He is writing in the New York Times urging that the mess he caused be fixed by taking away from working Americans the Social Security and Medicare for which they have paid in earmarked taxes all their working lives.

Wall Street's approach to the poor has always been to drive them deeper into the ground.

Eustace Mullins presents: The Neo-Zionist Order

Eustace Mullins argues that the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, drafted by German banker Paul Warburg and others in a secret meeting, defies Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 5 of the US Constitution by creating a “central bank of issue” for the United States. Mullins goes on to claim that World War I, the Agricultural Depression of 1920, the Great Depression of 1929, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power were brought about by international banking interests in order to profit from conflict and economic instability.

China Dumping US Treasurys: What’s the Message?

This kind of governing cannot last forever and the longer it persists, the more destructive will be its inevitable toppling. The last administration repeatedly warned the Chinese, who were only showing the virtues of good capitalists, not to save as much. That begged the question, who is going to fund our debt if Chinese savers don’t?

We may be about to find out.

British military insider: World War III is being staged; starting with Israel and Iran

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

US “leadership” and their corporate media minions are pushing juvenile-level propaganda for war with Iran; lies that anyone can verify with a few moments’ attention. If you haven’t already confirmed the Orwellian-level disinformation, stop and read the above two links now.

Many people hypothesize the confirmed lies for wars with Iraq and Afghanistan, and a final war with Iran, is to control oil. Connected is the theory that US political and economic “masters” are so confident in their propaganda, and so correct in their conclusion that the critical mass of humanity is too feeble to stop them, that they brazenly move forward for global hegemony.

A home renovation in Jerusalem's Old City has yielded a rare Arabic inscription offering insight into the city's history under Muslim rule, Israeli archaeologists said Wednesday. The fragment of a 1,100-year-old plaque is thought to have been made by an army veteran to express his thanks for a land grant from the Caliph al-Muqtadir, whom the inscription calls "Emir of the Faithful."

Dating from a time when Jerusalem was ruled from Baghdad by the Abbasid empire, the plaque shows how rulers rewarded their troops and ensured their loyalty, archaeologists said.

FBI, IRS, Secret Service raid Seeno family development offices

Federal agents raided the headquarters of the Seeno family development empire Thursday, hauling out stacks of documents from two office buildings at the heart of a 70-year-old home-building dynasty that has shaped much of East Bay suburbia.

About 30 agents from the FBI, the Internal Revenue Service criminal investigation division and the U.S. Secret Service served search warrants about 8 a.m. at the offices of Discovery Builders and the Albert D. Seeno Construction Co., both in the 4000 block of Port Chicago Highway.

Falling down - Economically Viable - in memory of Joe Stack

When I saw this scene in the movie Falling Down it somehow moved me. This was long before I really woke up to what was going on. At the time I was probably more of a tool of the neocons. And cases like this would strike me as those who have brought it on themselves. But this scene really humanized the situation for me.

Obama's Call to Endeavour Astronauts Gets Awkward

"My commitment to NASA is unwavering," Obama said. He emphasized "how proud we are of you ... and how committed we are to continuing human space exploration in the future."

A few weeks ago, the White House unveiled a plan to cancel NASA's new spaceship, its two new rockets and the NASA program, now five years in the making, to return astronauts to the moon. Though Obama also wants to add an extra $6 billion to NASA's budget over the next five years, his proposal has thrown much of the space agency into turmoil.

American People's Manifesto for US National Strike April 15 - 18

"The spark of Freedom is igniting within the hearts and minds of the people in America, as well as globally, and we all have the moral obligation to fan the flames. The time for taking our freedom for granted has passed.

It is now time to stand for freedom individually and collectively, and make the sacrifices necessary in order to reclaim it. But it is easier than most of us know.

There are only 3 things we need in order to ensure success. We must be Pro-Active, Non Violent, and Massive in numbers. There are over 300 million of us, here, in this country, trying to survive under corporate fascism. It is time to stop the so-called "Wheels of Progress" from crushing our lives and our planet.

Man Bulldozes Home After Foreclosure

Terry Hoskins owed $160,000 on a mortage on the home, which was valued at $350,000. Hoskins says the IRS placed liens on his business property and home after his brother, a former business partner, sued him. He says the bank then claimed his home as collateral and refused to accept a $170,000 buyout offer on the mortgage, telling him they could get more from it at auction.

He says he might bulldoze the commercial property next.
