The Next Big Bailout "Any Day Now"

Housing is still on the rocks and prices are headed lower. Master illusionist Ben Bernanke has managed to engineer a modest 7-month uptick in sales, but the fairydust is set to wear off later this month when the Fed stops purchasing mortgage-backed securities (MBS). When the program ends, long-term interest rates will creep higher and sales will begin to flag. The objective of Bernanke's $1.25 trillion quantitative easing program was to transfer the banks’ toxic assets onto the Fed's balance sheet. Having achieved that goal, Bernanke will now have to find a way to unload those same assets onto the public. Freddie and Fannie, which have already been used as a government-backed off-balance-sheet dumping ground, appear to be the most likely candidates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fascism is an economic system where profits are kept private and losses are socialized onto the public.

Work to cease on 'virtual fence' along U.S.-Mexico border

The Obama administration will halt new work on a "virtual fence" on the U.S.-Mexican border, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Tuesday, diverting $50 million in planned economic stimulus funds for the project to other purposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No one in this government really cares about securing the US's borders, because large corporations love the cheap, illegal labor.

And it is the large corporations which keep politicians in power.

Scott Creighton Has A Few Choice Words For Mr. Kucinich

Dennis took a plane ride with Obama and sold us out. Threw us right the f**k under the bus. He sold us out after talking to Obama and Pelosi. He sold us out because he was told that without his support other progressives would also hold out and Pelosi would have to use the “deem and pass” trick to force Obamacare on the American people. That action would harm her rep and Obama’s rep. So he flipped his vote without getting a goddamn thing in exchange.

Colleen Rowley: Minders Ensured She Didn't Say Anything About 9/11 the FBI Didn't WANT Told, Even to Government Officials With Top Security Clearance

FBI whistleblower Colleen Rowley says in a new interview that she was "minded" during her testimony to the Joint Intelligence Committee investigation of 9/11. Specifically, she said that "FBI minders" listened to her every word, to trail her and make sure that she didn't tell government personnel with top secret clearance even higher than her own anything which the FBI did not want to be told.

While this might sound fantastic, it is nothing new.

Rowley said the same had happened to Daniel Ellsberg went to members of Congress with the Pentagon papers.

There can be much glass strewn along the path of activists. This is why integrity counts a lot. This is why most activists take the risks of being who they are, though it would be easier to just be a shadow or a pen-name: because they know that there is no integrity in anonymity and operating under their own names will cause them some grief, but it has the power of honesty behind it. In anonymity one can say or do anything. One can even change their identity when they want to, when the “game gets boring” or make a series of identities to “spice things up” or when they need to attempt a new tactic or especially engage in unethical behaviour.

Revealed: Ashcroft, Tenet, Rumsfeld warned 9/11 Commission about ‘line’ it ’should not cross’

Senior Bush administration officials sternly cautioned the 9/11 Commission against probing too deeply into the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, according to a document recently obtained by the ACLU.

In the message, the officials denied the bipartisan commission's request to question terrorist detainees, informing its two senior-most members that doing so would "cross" a "line" and obstruct the administration's ability to protect the nation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absence of) surprise.

Yesterday, demonstrations were held throughout Jerusalem by Palestinians and progressive Israelis. They were protesting the growth of illegal settlements and evictions throughout the occupied eastern part of the city.

One of the demonstrations was held on the campus of the Hebrew University. About 80 Palestinian students assembled peacefully outside one of the main entrances. They were jeered by no more than 10 Israeli students who chanted “Go back to Gaza”, among other chants that I dare not put in writing without putting an ‘adult content’ tag on this post.

It was an ugly situation to say the least.

Netanyahu shows little yearning for peace

There seems little chance that everyone will soon "calm down," as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put it, about his confirmation that Israel will go ahead with 1,600 housing units in East Jerusalem.

Defending the plan, Netanyahu reminds the world that since 1967, Israeli leaders have considered all of Jerusalem ("complete and united," as a 1980 law says) to be the capital of Israel. Construction projects serve to convert political assertion to demographic reality.

What's different in this case, however, is that U.S. President Barack Obama's administration was by some accounts losing patience with Netanyahu over the issue even before last week's shocking embarrassment of Vice-President Joe Biden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Netanyahu reminds the world that since 1967, Israeli leaders have considered all of Jerusalem ("complete and united," as a 1980 law says) to be the capital of Israel. "

Nazi leaders considered all non-Germans to be inferior, and had laws that backed that up. Such laws did not make the Germans right in their delusions, of course.

The United Nations has passed numerous resolutions declaring Jerusalem a shared international city which Israel continues to ignore.

This is not a misunderstanding; Israel knows it is stealing land that belongs to other people or they would not call themselves "settlers!"

Néjàd Vu, All Over Again: The Media, ‘Pretext’, Context, & 9/11

Despite a nearly endless barrage of reporting on Iran’s nuclear energy program, the US government’s push for a new round of sanctions [2], and on-going efforts to foment regime change [3] in the Islamic Republic, all had been relatively quiet on the Ahmadinejad front in the Western press for some time.

Until now.

The mainstream media’s favorite scapegoat, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, resurfaced on Saturday amidst reports [4] that he called the attacks of September 11, 2001 “a big lie.” According to the immediate and rabid response of virtually every Western news network around, this was simply the latest insane claim of the same raving madman who has previously [5] threatened to wipe a foreign state off the map and denied the Holocaust.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone thinking that Ahmadinejad's comment about 9-11 is going to anger ordinary Americans is not paying attention to the recent non-corporate-spun polling which shows the overwhelming majority of Americans refusing to believe the official US GOver4nment story.

CLIMATE PROPAGANDA: It's still real and it's still a problem

Climate-related controversies and the outcome of the Copenhagen summit widely regarded as a failure have left a sense of hopelessness in climate policy, says Lord Chris Smith. In this week's Green Room, he stresses the soundness of the fundamental climate science and the need to continue pushing for meaningful climate deals.

Give Peace a Chance

Are American officials afraid of peace? The supposed peace candidate in 2008, Barack Obama has expanded the war in Afghanistan and refuses to rule out an attack on Iran. President Obama’s opponent, John McCain, sang a cheery tune about bombing the latter country.

Worst of all, President George W. Bush and his top aides apparently considered attacking Russia, a one-time Cold War foe and nuclear-armed power, on behalf of the country of Georgia.

In short, the Bush administration seriously considered starting World War III.

The Poodle Gets Kicked

Actually, Joe set himself up. From the moment he set foot on Israeli soil, our vice president was in full pander mode.

First, he headed to Yad Vashem memorial, where he put on a yarmulke and declared Israel “a central bolt in our existence.”

“For world Jewry,” Joe went on, presumably including 5 million Americans, “Israel is the heart. … Israel is the light. … Israel is the hope.”

Meeting Shimon Peres the next day, Joe confessed that when he first visited at age 29, “Israel captured my heart.”

In Peres’ guestbook, he wrote, “The bond between our two nations has been and remains unshakable.”

He then told Peres and the world, “There is absolutely no space between the United States and Israel when it comes to Israel’s security.”

Bloggers battle corruption in Russia

Russians typically shrug their shoulders at the lavish lifestyles of government officials, assuming nothing can be done about bureaucrats who take bribes and pocket state funds.

But when Russia's interior ministry announced plans to buy a golden bed, it raised an outcry -- and revealed the potential of the Internet for stirring up outrage against entrenched corruption.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Americans shrug their shoulders at the lavish lifestyles of government officials, assuming nothing can be done about bureaucrats who take bribes and pocket state funds.

Michael Moore | The Green They Steal, the Greed They Wear ... a St. Patrick's Day Lament

Within days, the House of Representatives will vote to pass the Senate health care "reform" bill. This bill is a joke. It has NOTHING to do with "health care reform." It has EVERYTHING to do with lining the pockets of the health insurance industry. It forces, by law, every American who isn't old or destitute to buy health insurance if their boss doesn't provide it. What company wouldn't love the government forcing the public to buy that company's product?! Imagine a bill that ordered every citizen to buy the extended warranty on all their appliances? Imagine a law that made it illegal not to own an iPhone? Or how 'bout I get a law passed that makes it compulsory for every American to go see my next movie? Woo-hoo! Who wouldn't love a sweet set-up like this windfall?

Full El Al flight took off on 9/11 from JFK to Tel Aviv

WMR has learned from two El Al sources who worked for the Israeli airline at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport that on 9/11, hours after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded all civilian domestic and international incoming and outgoing flights to and from the United States, a full El Al Boeing 747 took off from JFK bound for Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport.

The two El Al employee sources are not Israeli nationals but legal immigrants from Ecuador who were working in the United States for the airline.

Hundreds Of Americans File Complaints Over Naked Body Scanners

Despite establishment media spin that naked body scanners are being meekly accepted by a compliant public, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that there have been more than 600 formal complaints about the devices in the last year.

Furthermore, the documents reveal anger at TSA officials for refusing to offer passengers a pat-down alternative, as well as forcing children to go through machines which provide crisp images of genitalia, a particularly outrageous scenario in light of last week’s story concerning a TSA worker who was charged with multiple child sex crimes having raped an underage girl.

CIA: What Really Happened in the quiet French village of Pont-Saint-Esprit

Shortly after the incident, in September 1951, scientists writing in the highly respected British Medical Journal declared that “the outbreak of poisoning” was produced by ergot mold. This explanation, however, was based almost solely upon the findings of biochemists dispatched to the scene from the nearby Sandoz Chemical Company in Basle, Switzerland. Included in the contingent from Sandoz was Dr. Albert Hofmann, the man who had first synthesized LSD on November 16, 1938. At the time of the Sandoz group’s visit to Pont St. Esprit only a handful of scientists worldwide, estimated to be no more than eight-to-ten, knew of the existence of the man-made drug LSD.

French guillotine exhibition opens 33 years after the last head fell

Beneath the grey veil used to cloak her awful secrets from the public gaze, "the widow" stands 14ft tall and the blade hangs menacingly over a hole designed for a neck. "One can have a certain indifference on the death penalty," read Victor Hugo's famous words nearby, "as long as one has not seen a guillotine with one's own eyes."

When France put an end to capital punishment in 1981, it also bid a not-so-fond farewell to the instrument of death that had taken the lives of thousands. But today, at the request of the crusading abolitionist who consigned it to history, one of the last guillotines in France was put on display for all the world to see.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perfect timing!

Chinese Fluoride In Mass. Water Raises Concern

Fluoride is added to the water most of us drink because the government believes it's a safe and inexpensive way to prevent tooth decay.

However, Team 5 Investigates found the Amesbury Water Department pulled fluoride from its system amid concerns about its supply from China.

Department of Public Works Director Rob Desmarais said after he mixes the white powder with water, 40 percent of it will not dissolve.

"I don't know what it is," Desmarais said. "It's not soluble, and it doesn't appear to be sodium fluoride. So we are not quite sure what it is."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Flouride in drinking water does not reduce tooth decay.

Flouride in the drinking water does have serious neurological effects over time.

In Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" the workers were intentionally medicated to keep them mentally inferior and thus easier to keep enslaved.

Just something to think about while guzzling that glass of flouridated water.

A *Very Serious* Warning To Nancy Pelosi

Karl Denninger's message to Nancy Pelosi!!!!

I know you're not going to listen to me.

I'm going to say it anyway, because as a concerned citizen of The United States of America, I must.

You are making a grave, perhaps nation-ending mistake.

Attempting to "deem" the Health Care bill passed when it has not actually been voted on is not Constitutional. Article 1, Section 7:

All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

Mar 17 06:20

What’s Constitutional Money Anyway?

Only silver and gold coins are constitutional Money, and Money in the Constitution means only silver and gold coins. Neither the states nor federal governments may issue paper money, a.k.a. bills of credit. The dollar is the Money-Unit or unit of account, and it’s a silver coin with 371.25 grains of fine silver. The federal government, but not the states, may coin Money, with the mint being open to the public, i.e., anyone can get bullion minted into coins; and vice versa, anyone can melt coins down for commercial use. The federal government may borrow Money (again coins) on its credit but may not obtain forced loans. Legal tender can only be silver and gold coins.

The 911 Cat is out of the bag

The lid is blowing off a story broadcast by American TV on September 11, 2001. The question now is whether or not owners and managers of America's mainline media will be able to continue burying facts, questions, controversy, speculations, and conclusions contradicting that day's professionally crafted narrative. When will the American people be given access to documented facts unearthed over the years since that tragic and exceptional day?

In our political system, it is virtually a given that all politicians are corrupt. The politician wants to get elected; so he takes money from thieves; the best do small things to help the people; but they all do what they think they have to to keep the money flowing in. But people are people. They occasionally get carried away by an idea, or by the moment, and they get inspired to think that real virtue is possible, even for them. And for such people, at such times, there are other forms of coercion. Blackmail, for example. Further, all politicians know, and the media too, that to admit certain truths means, at least, political death. And on occasion, there is the real murder of an individual who thinks he can, and does, serve the interests of the people.

From CNN's lower third: 'Jewish lobby runs America'

"CNN's practice of running viewers' Twitter feeds at the bottom of its screen put some jarringly raw anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiment on cable during an interview with Wolf Blitzer, a reader pointed out to me today, and the segment above illustrates."

Abu Zubaydah’s Torture Diary

To coincide with the publication of my article, "What Torture Is, and Why It’s Illegal and Not 'Poor Judgment,’" in which I revisited the scandalous whitewash of the Justice Department report into the conduct of John Yoo and Jay Bybee (the lawyers who sought to redefine torture in the notorious "torture memos" of August 2002), I reproduce below a transcript of the statements made by the "high-value detainee" Abu Zubaydah during interviews with representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross, following his transfer to Guantánamo from secret CIA prisons in September 2006.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US institutionalized torture, it:

1. Walked away from any human rights treaty to which it was ever a signatory.

2. Fell off a moral cliff, and can never be respected by the international community as a champion of human rights and human decency, because we observe those values in the breach, not the observance.

3. Made it just fine and dandy for any hostile foreign nation to do precisely the same to US military and civilian personnel.

Do chew on that 3rd bit, particularly if you have anyone you care about serving in the US military at this time.

Flyer calls on non-Jews to 'leave the land'

Right-wing ultra-orthodox Jews handed out Arabic fliers calling on "non-Jews to leave the land of Israel," in the streets of Jerusalem on Sunday, witnesses reported.

The fliers, quoting Torah and Qur'an, used scripture to urge Palestinians living in the city to leave.

"The Old Testament says the land of Israel is small and belongs to Jews only. Others are not allowed to stay permanently," the flier read.

Top Ratings Agency Warns Austerity Riots Could Hit America

Soaring debt costs will undoubtedly force governments to continue to devalue their currencies in a desperate attempt to reduce the burden.

This will inevitably result in runaway inflation that will devastate the value of major currencies and eviscerate savings and pensions. The cost of living will accelerate and taxes will be raised as the people continue to foot the bill for a wealth transfer amounting to trillions that has been plundered by the offshore banking elite.

The only way to protect yourself against this approaching financial tsunami is by swapping crumbling paper money for gold bullion, which has proven to be a safe store of wealth for thousands of years.

'U.S. administration is ignoring a host of Palestinian provocations'

Republican Whip Cantor (R-VA) called the U.S. reaction to the Israeli announcement "irresponsible."

"In an effort to ingratiate our country with the Arab world, this administration has shown a troubling eagerness to undercut our allies and friends," Cantor said. "Israel has always been committed to the peace process, including advocating for direct talks between Israelis and Palestinians, in effort to bring this conflict to an end. Unfortunately, the Palestinian government continues to insist on indirect talks and slowing down the process."

Vitamin D better than vaccines at preventing flu, report claims

The risk of children suffering from flu can be halved if they take vitamin D, doctors in Japan have found. The finding has implications for flu epidemics since vitamin D, which is naturally produced by the human body when exposed to direct sunlight, has no significant side effects, costs little and can be several times more effective than anti-viral drugs or vaccine.

Only one in ten children, aged six to 15 years, taking the sunshine vitamin in a clinical trial came down with flu compared with one in five given a dummy tablet. Mitsuyoshi Urashima, the Japanese doctor who led the trial, told The Times that vitamin D was more effective than vaccines in preventing flu.

Miliband says Security Council on same page on Iran

Foreign Secretary David Miliband said on a visit to China Monday that the veto-wielding members of the UN Security Council were on the same page on how to tackle Iran.

Miliband's comments came ahead of talks in Beijing with Chinese leaders which he said would focus on efforts to resolve the international standoff over Tehran's disputed nuclear drive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


China has just moved up to Iran's #1 trading partner, particularly in the area of energy development.

China takes over from West as Iran's main economic partner

China has emerged as Iran's top economic partner, investing heavily in the energy sector and filling the gaps left by Western firms forced out by international sanctions.

In 2009, China became Iran's premier trade partner, with bilateral trade worth 21.2 billion dollars against 14.4 billion dollars three years earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UN sanctions against Iran, particularly with this spectacular increase in trade between China and Iran?

In the immortal word(s) of Tony Soprano,


There is one aspect of this relationship to which the US, Israel, NATO, the EU, etc., need to pay close attention.

If there is some kind of attack on Iran, will China (and Russia, for that matter) feel sufficiently threatened, particularly in regard to energy development in Iran, that they would join the fray on the side of Iran?!?

Inside the Lawfare Project: Netanyahu’s Attack on Human Rights NGO’s Hits the States

“Why didn’t you invite any speakers with an alternative perspective?” Franke asked Schizer.

His reply was curt. “We invited one or two but they couldn’t make it,” Schizer claimed before hurrying away.

Schizer was understandably nervous about his exposure. After all, he had just presided over a day-long conference during which Israeli human rights workers were labeled as traitors while Judge Richard Goldstone and human rights groups were compared to “anti-Semitic street gangs.” After several speakers had harshly condemned legal efforts against the construction of Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Schizer appeared beside them to lend his credibility to their views.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Dean David Schizer and the people who supported this event thought for one moment that this was going to change the opinion of thinking people around the world who have actually read the "Goldstone Report", he- and they - are seriously deluded.

These elements supporting the arch-right wing Netanyahu government can bully, excoriate, and attempt to levy every legal maneuver they can throw at Israeli and other NGO human rights groups.

But at the end of the day, with a 24 hour news cycle, the net, cell cameras, etc., they cannot keep the truth from coming out about what is really going on in Palestine, East Jerusalem, Gaza, and the West Bank.

And what is going on in these places is a slow, but inexorable genocide, against the Palestinian people.

The world is watching, Dean Schizer; and there is absolutely no rational rhetoric possible to defend what continues to be done to the Palestinian people by Israel.

Supporting the War Instead of the Troops

Most congressional action regarding Afghanistan has concerned continued funding for the conflict. Thus, members of Congress have cloaked their support for an increasingly unpopular war in terms of financial support of the troops. But last week’s resolution had nothing to do with funding or defunding the war, but rather dealt directly with the wisdom of an open-ended commitment of U.S. troops (and hundreds of billions of tax dollars) in Afghanistan. Members opposing the resolution had to make their case for the ongoing loss of American lives as well as the huge expenditures required for an intractable conflict.

In my opinion, this was an impossible case to make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This war is unwinnable, period, end of discussion.

The only people actually "winning" are the drug dealers, and those large corporations providing contract mercenaries, contractors, and supplies for the troops.

US-Israeli Tensions Escalating Quickly

The neoconservative editorial board of the Wall Street Journal accused President Barack Obama of having deliberately "chosen this occasion to spark a full-blown diplomatic crisis with its most reliable Middle Eastern ally." It also warned that Israel will be more likely to attack Iran unilaterally if it "senses that the administration is looking for any pretext to blow up relations."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu just might use this episode to "justify" an attack against Iran, declaring that the US is "too weak" to neutralize Israel's most existential threat in the region.

However, if he does this, he may well taking his country to war against Iran without the benefit of US military and/or intelligence assistance.

The fastest way to stop a dog from chasing cars is to let him catch one.

Rightists prepare banner denouncing Obama as 'PLO agent'

A group of far-right activists on Tuesday announced their plan to hang hundreds of posters across the country depicting U.S. President Barack Obama under the headline "agent of the PLO." The banner is already on display in the office of National Union MK Michael Ben Ari.

"The poster is within the limits of the country's freedom of speech act," said Ben Ari's aide, Itamar Ben Gvir.

Clashes Erupt In Jerusalem As Hamas Declares 'Day Of Rage'

Violent clashes between Israeli police and Palestinians have broken out in Jerusalem, after Hamas announced a "day of rage."

Hamas was angered by the reopening of a synagogue in Jerusalem's Old City, fueling Palestinian fears that the restoration of the Hurva synagogue would endanger a nearby mosque. Hamas rival Fatah urged Muslims to rush to the al-Aqsa mosque, the most sensitive of Muslim sites in the divided city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Hamas: this is precisely the response the Israeli government and IDF want to elicit.

Please, pull a "Gandhi" here, because anything other than that will get heads smashed, and absolutely nothing substantive accomplished toward the establishment of a viable Palestinian state.

After the astounding humiliation of Vice President Joseph Biden by Israel’s rightwing government, that nation’s premier newspaper, “Ha’aretz,” cited an old Hebrew saying, `Biden had to wipe spit off his face and say it was only rain.’

Before arriving in Israel, Biden had repeated President Obama’s demand that Israel cease building new housing in East Jerusalem, which violates international law and decades of UN resolutions. Washington and the EU have repeatedly asked Israel to cease most building activity in the occupied West Bank.

Anti-Semitism – what is it?

Jeff Gates considers how the definition of “anti-Semitism” has been broadened to an extent where any questioning of Israel’s relationship with or penetration of the United States political system, or of anything pertaining to 9/11 or the US’s war on Iraq, is deemed “anti-Semitic” and may pose a risk to the reputation or even the life of the questioner.

Competition for the IMF’s Gold?

Competition for the IMF’s Gold?

On February 24, Reuters reported that the Reserve Bank of India was “set to be a buyer” of the 191.3 tonnes (6.74 million ounces) of gold the IMF is selling. Although the bank wouldn’t comment directly on the possibility, they did say, “We are closely looking at the gold market… gold is a safe bet.”

The article then quoted an unidentified official from the China Gold Association as saying, “It is not feasible for China to buy the IMF bullion, as any purchase or even intent to do so would trigger market speculation and volatility.”

US Readies Cyberwar, Virtual Flag Terrorism

Google is now preparing to leave China as a result of this company’s stubborn refusal to obey Chinese laws. Google is in effect demanding extraterritoriality and immunity to the legal norms of the host nation, a claim which goes back to the unequal treaties imposed by foreign imperialists, notably the British, on China starting in the 19th century. It is not surprising that the Chinese response to this arrogant interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state has been stern.

Israeli Audacity and Axelrod Angst

Don’t fall for that crock of bull-puckey! It is a sham, all part of the “Smoke and Mirrors” game Washington helps Israel play. Sure, Washington was embarrassed and for the cameras even “furious” at times. But nothing of consequence will change in regards to US foreign policy and they all know it.

While we are all fed the glories of democracy and led to believe Israel is a great beacon for democracy in the Middle East, an area populated by roughly 2.5 million Palestinians is being shoved around by a bully government on behalf of only 500,000 Jews that live in these “Occupied Palestinian Territories”. Long live democracy!

The New U.S. Government Off Balance Sheet Scam

Dodd has opened a major new avenue for scamming. It is a very complex method to hide the simple fact that the Fed will be required to print money to finance parts of government operations. It is a highly inflationary method, and now that Dodd has shown Congress the way, one wonders how many other programs in the future will be financed in this very destructive way.

House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it

After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate's health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.

Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers "deem" the health-care bill to be passed.

Clinton Assured Ties between US, Israel 'Not In Danger'

US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that Israel must prove it is committed to the Middle East peace process, but brushed aside suggestions that US-Israeli relations are in crisis.

US and Israeli officials are in intense talks over "steps that we think would demonstrate the requisite commitment to the process," Clinton pointed out.

She added that the Obama administration was awaiting a response from Israel to suggestions on how to repair damage caused by last week's announcement of new housing in occupied Jerusalem.

The Most Powerful Destructive Corporate Business Club Most Americans Have Never Heard of

In Axis of Logic's original manifesto, we targeted Global Corporate Empire as Public Enemy #1. As one of the logical extensions of that premise, we saw U.S. national elections firmly in the grip of the corporations behind the masks of the Democrat and Republican political parties. Thus, we have consistently called for a boycott on the U.S. elections, encouraging people to withdraw from the corporate ruse by abstinence, i.e. "vote not to vote" and to "vote on your feet, vote on the street". After being repeatedly duped by the fraudulent electoral process and most recently by their holding card, Barack Obama, the people are now awakening en masse to the grand deception of "U.S. democracy".

Chertoff Family Member Wrote "Popular Mechanic" 9-11 Propaganda

March 4, 2005

Dictators like Saddam Hussein have always used nepotism to protect their secrets and maintain control. Like a dictatorship, the inner cabal that directs the actions of the Bush administration uses the same tactics to confuse the public and conceal the truth of 9-11.

Dictators have always employed nepotism, the placing of family members in key positions, for one simple reason: only loyal family members can be trusted with the secrets that keep them in power. For this reason the shameless nepotism of the Bush administration should alarm Americans because it indicates that a dictatorship is encroaching upon the United States. The Defense Department defines nepotism as the situation when relatives are in the same chain-of-command.

Khatib said that the Israeli police used batons and tear gas grenades to attack the young men, adding that the IOF troops also prevented dozens of buses carrying Palestinians from reaching the Aqsa Mosque.

In an earlier incident, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Monday afternoon stormed Al-Issawiya area in Jerusalem and clashed with Palestinian protesters who used stones and empty bottles to defend themselves against the troops’ attack.

US Media And Israel Military, All In The Family

Recent exposés revealing that Ethan Bronner, the New York Times Israel-Palestine bureau chief, has a son in the Israeli military have caused a storm of controversy that continues to swirl and generate further revelations.

Many people find such a sign of family partisanship in an editor covering a foreign conflict troubling especially given the Times’ record of Israel-centric journalism. Times management at first refused to confirm Bronner’s situation, then refused to comment on it. Finally, public outcry forced Times Public Editor Clark Hoyt to confront the problem in a February 7th column.

Shameful Anti-Free Speech Lobby Labels Questioning Government “Hate”

Shameful Zionist propaganda lobby group The Simon Wiesenthal Center has issued a report which smears people who question government as racists and terrorists, labeling conspiracy theories “hate” in the latest crusade against free speech on the Internet.


In reality, the only peddlers of “hate” are the Simon Wiesenthal Center itself. Their latest report is yet another salvo in the long-standing agenda to silence what they characterize as “conspiracy theories,” but what in fact constitute legitimate criticism of the abuses committed by Israel against Palestinians.

Apparently the Afghan government is very angry about this because this Talibani had a promise of safe passage and was engaged in strategic talks; please forgive my linking to a Zionist manufactured news site.

A year ago. Israeli Border Police shattered the skull of Tristan Anderson with a high-velocity tear gas canister as he stood unarmed following a weekly demonstration against Israel’s Separation Wall in the West Bank village of Nilin. Since then, his family, friends, and supporters around the world continue the struggle to hold Israel accountable.

Anderson, a now-39-year-old resident of Oakland, California, still lies in the Tel Hashomer hospital outside Tel Aviv, where he was taken after the March 13, 2009, shooting. Although his mother Nancy Anderson recently reported some welcome signs of progress in his recovery, he remains in critical condition, with severe permanent brain damage and an uncertain prognosis.
