"[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man – who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia." -- George Mason

Zionist settlers damage olive trees using chemicals

Zionist settlers destroyed tens of fruitful olive trees in Al-Mughir town, northeast of Ramallah, on Friday after spraying them with a chemical material.

Local sources said that the settlers spoiled 55 olive trees using a white chemical material unknown to locals, adding that the material dries the trees and slowly kills them.

Nancy Pelosi says food stamps and unemployment insurance will grow US economy

Nancy Pelosi says that food stamps and unemployment insurance will grow the US economy and lift it from the recession that Barack Obama has helped to worsen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Technically, Pelosi is correct as long as you remember that under the Federal Reserve System, to "grow" the economy means to plunge the nation deeper into debt.

U.S. Won’t Recover Lost Jobs Until March 2020 At Current Pace

The U.S. economy lost 95,000 jobs in September, far worse than expectations for no change in employment. More Census-related temp jobs ended, as expected, but state and local governments slashed staff far more than predicted.

So far in 2010, the U.S. has added just 613,000 jobs — for a monthly average of 68,111.

Employment bottomed in December 2009 at 129.588 million — two years after peaking at 137.951 million. At this year’s pace, the U.S. won’t recoup all those 8.36 million lost jobs* until March 2020 — 147 months after the December 2007 high.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What makes me very nervous about these numbers is the reality that, historically, the US has gotten out of depressions through war.

One has to wonder, with so many designated "flash points" around the world, against whom the next war will be initiated by this country in the attempt to get it out of its economic situation, and what the ultimate repercussions of such a war will be.

Fears of Military Coup Surface in Iraq – Sources

The Iraqi official, who spoke to Asharq Al-Awsat on the condition of anonymity, said that "we are not ruling out a military coup taking place especially as the political history of Iraq is full of military coups, and in light of the decision of the commander-in-chief of the Iraqi armed forces, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, to surround Baghdad with military forces…and to exclude other leaders from positions of direct responsibility of the movements of the army, as well as the arrest of senior officers in Baghdad, Mosul, Diyali, Tikrit. This gives rise to fears of a military coup in the event of al-Maliki not being able to remain as prime minister."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the "democracy" the US brought to Iraq may be heading toward.... a military coup?!?

Report: North Korea moving toward nuclear weapons

North Korea may be moving ahead with a program to enrich uranium to make nuclear weapons, according to a report Friday by the Institute for Science and International Security.

Pyongyang has moved beyond laboratory-scale work and is now capable of building a "at the very least, a pilot-scale" plant of centrifuges to enrich uranium, said the report based partly on information about North Korea's equipment purchases from other nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering the object lesson the US gave the world with their invasion and occupation of Iraq, which did not have a nuclear deterrent, (contrary to the pack of lies the American people were fed at the time), one can hardly blame North Korea for moving ahead here, if this story is true.

Iraqis on edge as rocket attacks intensify

Sunni and Shi'ite insurgents are reviving the tactic of firing rockets at Baghdad's fortified Green Zone, unsettling the Iraqi capital's residents and adding to a sense that security is eroding as U.S. troops withdraw.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if these attacks are not premeditated to "encourage" the Iraqi government (as soon as it can be formed) to beg the US to never leave.

The Karzai Family Fortune, Courtesy of U.S. Taxpayers

The average Afghan — and, indeed, the average American — may be deriving very little benefit from the United States’ continued occupation of Afghanistan and the billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars that continue to be poured into that country, but in both countries the well-connected make out quite handsomely. In Afghanistan, the key to prosperity and power, it seems, is having the surname of Karzai, as in President Hamid Karzai.

“In recent years,” the New York Times’ James Risen reports, “dozens of Karzai family members and close allies have taken government jobs, pursued business interests or worked as contractors to the United States government, allowing them to shape policy or financially benefit from it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Your tax dollars at work, folks.

And apparently, there is absolutely zero Congressional oversight as to how the money for these projects get spent.

Afghanistan: War without end

There is a clear and pressing need to end the monumental folly of prosecuting a war in Afghanistan.

The war could continue simply because its momentum is now unstoppable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And who actually wins, in this war without end?

Not the citizens of the US or NATO countries; indeed, we are collectively less safe than we were before the war against Afghanistan was initiated.

It is not the Afghan people, desperately poor, and dealing with a dysfunctional, corrupt government, the members of which are so crooked they have to screw their socks on in the morning.

From the inception of this war to the present, the only people "winning" have been the huge defense contractors which provide hired mercenaries, supplies, and logistics, and the drug dealers.

That is an ugly, and dismal, assessment, considering all the blood and money spent here; but it is the truth.

America's War on Food Not Bombs

Co-founded in 1980 by Keith McHenry and other anti-nuclear activists in Cambridge MA, its autonomous, all volunteer groups advocate nonviolent social change. Among other activities, they recover edible, safe to eat food that would otherwise be discarded, using it to make "fresh hot vegan and vegetarian meals that are served in outside public spaces to anyone without restriction." They also serve it at protests, other events and in disaster areas, but not free from disruptive government harassment.

For example, San Francisco members have been arrested over 1,000 times for their activism against homelessness and other social injustices, intolerable in a major city in the world's richest country.

China Outraged by Dissident’s Nobel Peace Prize Win

China’s Ambassador met with Norwegian officials today to express his government’s outrage at the Nobel Peace Prize commission’s decision to award this year’s prize to Liu Xiaobo, a Chinese dissident who is currently in prison. Norway responded that its government doesn’t get to decide who wins the prize.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to China's Ambassador to Norway: this award has already been completely debased and discredited by its having been awarded to such consummate warmongers like Kissinger and Obama.

That having been said, with the rapidly growing rise of a Chinese middle class, the Chinese government can well expect that there will be many more people who have differing views of how problems need to be resolved, and will be vocal in those opinions.

It is in how the Chinese government deals with the issue of dissent which will shape the future of the country, and the future of its position as an emerging world power.

Was a prominent Canadian journalist fired for suggesting PM Steven Harper is a Straussian?

Did Leo Strauss Get Rick Salutin Fired?

Rick Salutin, recently of the Globe and Mail, was easily one of that papers most sophisticated and erudite columnists. He wrote with authority and conviction on a wide range of subjects. He “stuck out” at the Globe and Mail as he was clearly identified as left leaning, but then good newspapers have a mandate to publish a cross section of opinion. With the departure of Salutin the Globe and Mail has big shoes to fill on its opinion page.

In one of his last columns(Stephen Harper- the last Straussian?, Sept.18th 2010) Salutin suggested the prime minister was a Straussian. If you are a prime minister who has spent his political capital and lusts after one last run at a majority government the last thing you want is to be outed as a Straussian.

Pakistan decides to reopen major supply route for NATO forces

The Pakistani government on Saturday announced its decision to reopen the Khyber Pass border into Afghanistan for NATO supply convoys.

"After assessing the security situation in all its aspects, the government has decided to reopen the ... supply from the Pakistan-Afghanistan border at Torkham with immediate effect," the government said in a statement.

"Our relevant authorities are now in the process of coordinating with authorities on the other side of the border to ensure smooth resumption of the supply traffic."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported today at:


Pakistan’s Convoy Halt Forces US to Reduce Tensions

"By continuing its halt in NATO convoys headed for Afghanistan through the Torkham border crossing into a second week, Pakistan’s military leadership has brought an end to the unilateral attacks in Pakistan pushed by Gen. David Petraeus and forced Washington to make a new accommodation."

It appears, for the moment, that Pakistan won this one regarding the cessation of US drone attacks: we will see how long this holds.

NATO Commander: New Europe Threat Justifies Afghan War

US Admiral James G. Stavridis, the current head of EUCOM who also holds the needlessly pompous title of NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander for Europe discussed the largely nebulous terror threat against Europe, insisting it justifies the ongoing war in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but is this man absolutely barking mad?!?

What this war is and has always been about is potential private profit from a publicly funded war. The spoils were to have been from the installation of pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil, drug profits, defense contractors' profits, and profits from the huge mineral resources which abound here.

Nearly 10 years on, the profits being seen from this war have primarily gone to the defense contractors and drug dealers.

As reported at:


The cost of war in Afghanistan from 2001 to present is over three hundred fifty-three billion (with a B), and escalating rapidly.

The war has been of absolutely no benefit to the American people in terms of enhancing the security of this country, nor has it created any degree of stabilization in Afghanistan; in fact, it has done just the opposite.

People in Afghanistan and beyond don't "hate us because we are free": they hate us because, on a daily basis, they are seeing their wives, kids, friends, and loved ones being exterminated or maimed for life who are not in any way insurgents.

But what this approach has done (as it inevitably would) has been to push those left standing into the waiting embrace of the insurgents.

There is one classical definition of insanity, and that is repeating the same thing, again and again, and expecting a different outcome.

It appears that the White House, State Department, and Pentagon are in absolute lock step in doing this in their policies toward Afghanistan. They are locked in a militarily unwinnable situation, but don't know what to do, except to keep doing what has not worked for almost a decade.

Of course, for the DOD and Pentagon, perpetual war guarantees one thing: perpetual funding.

What this country needs is a Department of Peace, which would be tasked as to how to achieve geopolitical outcomes without resorting to war.

Of course, that would be logical.

Another frame-up starts to collapse.

James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen are on trial in federal court in Manhattan on charges of attempting to use weapons of mass destruction, conspiracy and other crimes. They are accused of engaging in a plot to detonate bombs outside a synagogue in the Riverdale section of the Bronx and to shoot down military planes with missiles last year.

They have denied wrongdoing and their lawyers have argued they were entrapped by a government informant.

Mark B. Gombiner, a lawyer for Onta Williams, said he was upset the document was in the jurors' notebooks because it was basically "a confession."

"I would like to say something about it," Mr. Gombiner said. "I don't know what to say, I'm a little discombobulated."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Kings of the Short Run in the Land of Flaming Shit.

Sunday is10/10/10. The government and other professional liars have had something to say about the date. Everything the government and media say are lies, or the groundwork for lies to come. All of it is especially, sculpted soft stool from the Dairy Queen machinery of a banker’s ass. You’re expected to eat and enjoy it, without knowing the composition or the source. The complexity of their intentions can be summed up quite simply. They want to take you to the point where you don’t know what the ice cream is made of, or where it came from, to the point where you line up with your cones in hand and wait in a rapt, religious hunger to obtain it from the source. Your eyes should gleam with gratitude as you walk away, knowing that you have seen one of the key mysterious out workings of God.

Flotilla victims' families to International Criminal Court: Prosecute Israel

The families of the victims of the May 31 clashes aboard the Turkish Gaza-bound aid ship Mavi Marmara have petition the International Criminal Court in Hague to prosecute Israeli soldiers, the Guardian reported Friday.

Israeli navy commandos killed nine Turkish activists aboard the Mavi Marmara, one of several ships taking part in a Turkish-backed aid flotilla aiming to violate Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip. Dozens of activists, as well as Israeli troops, were injured during the clashes.

HOAX ALERT - H.B. 1388 Email Claims Obama Funded Resettlement of Hamas Refugees to U.S.A.

Forwarded email claims President Obama has funded a $20 million resettlement of Hamas refugees to the United States via H.R. 1388 (aka H.B. 1388), a bill supposedly passed 'behind our backs' in Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's minions are at it again, flooding email boxes with hoaxes which weak-minded fools forward without thinking. I got this one from my mother in law, and my reply to her which follows triggered one of the few disagreements my wife and I have ever had. Feel free to adapt and use everywhere you see this crap pop up.

XXXXXXX, would you PLEASE stop falling for and forwarding along this propaganda without even bothering to check if any of it is real.

House bills are labeled HR not HB. That should have been your first clue. This story you sent us all is a well known HOAX.


This hoax and others like it you perpetually insist on emailing us are designed to take the focus off the fact that it was ISRAEL, not those mean-old Muslims, who attacked and captured Americans in International Waters last May, murdering one American in cold blood. Although you probably did not see it on the TV news, the United Nations Human Rights Council concluded that Israel’s attack on the aid flotilla, in which 8 Turks and 1 American were murdered, was a “brutal” (UNHRC’s words) violation of international law in support of a blockade which it itself a violation of International law. Again, while you did not hear it on the TV news, the government of Turkey has referred Israel’s attack on the aid flotilla to the International Criminal Court in the Hague. i.e. this is now a war-crimes issue.

Israel has a huge propaganda machine aimed at America, because Israel gets billions of dollars in financial and military aid from the taxpayers by waving this “HAMAS is bad and we are good” propaganda all over the place.

Again, you did not see this on the US media; you have to go to foreign sources to learn that a UNITED STATES SENATE REPORT found that Israel routinely BRIBES the presstitutes in the American media to present the news in a way that favors Israel, often at the expense of the truth.


The US media assumes that weak-minded fools who do not bother to check the facts (the kind of people Stalin referred to as “useful idiots”) will simply parrot what they are told on TV and propaganda emails to give the appearance that they know what is going on in the world. Like Saddam has “nookular” bombs and “humans need to be taxed to fight global warming” to name two recent onerous examples.

The reality is quite a bit different. HAMAS won the elections in Gaza in 2006. They are the legitimate government.


In 2007, Israel’s puppet regime FATAH tried and failed to seize control of Gaza. It was at that point that Israel blockaded Gaza, not because of security but in order to starve the people of Gaza into surrendering their elected government and accepting Israeli proxy rule through FATAH. This is documented in Israel’s own internal documents as reported (again in the foreign press) by McClatchy news.


When the seizure by FATAH failed, and the people of Gaza refused to surrender their elected government, Israel broke a 6 month cease fire and attacked Gaza on November 4th, 2008, hoping that the American people were too distracted by the elections to pay much attention while Israel started a new war of conquest called Operation CAST LEAD, also denounced by the United Nations as a brutal violation of International Law.

In other words, when you ignore the bought-and-paid for propaganda in the US media, what is actually going on here is a repeat of the 1948 Soviet Blockade of West Berlin, done in order to starve the people of West Berlin into surrendering their elected government and accepting Soviet proxy rule through East Germany. Of course, back then the rest of the world saw such starvation tactics as wrong and mounted the Berlin Airlift. The blockade then failed.

Today, what the bought-and-paid for media is trying to sell you is that what the USSR could not be allowed to do to West Berlin Israel must be allowed to do to Gaza; starve the people of Gaza into surrendering their elected government and accepting Israeli proxy rule through FATAH. The US aids this policy of conquest by starvation. In other words, we as a nation are guilty of the same crimes the USSR committed against West Berlin in 1948.

The US (specifically the government) are the bad guys here. I know you do not want to hear that. From our last conversation in which you stated you thought torturing confessions out of people was proof of guilt, it is clear that you want to believe the US are the good guys without actually having to work to force the government to BE good guys. I would prefer you join the rest of humanity in the real world. However, if you want to live in your own private little world of self delusion, gratefully accepting every piece of propaganda handed to you that gives you an excuse not to really think about the evil is going on right before your nose, that is your right. But kindly stop trying to infect the rest of us with your mental delusions because you are making Americans look really dumb to the rest of the world.

The reason this nation is in the mess it is in is because we are kept silent by politeness when the mindless drones of the state are kept speaking by their own mental illnesses.

"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self--image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all."-- Michael Rivero

Latest USDA report stuns grain futures markets

The latest news release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture is the equivalent of a blockbuster record to commodity futures brokers and traders - and it's corn, wheat and soybean futures that are soaring up the charts.

In essence, the USDA said that U.S. cornfields will generate yields far smaller than either analysts or the USDA's own researchers had projected. Last month, the department was calling for a record crop with yields of 162.5 bushels per acre.

But hot weather and heavy rains haven't helped, and analysts guessed that this month's figure would come in at 159.9 bushels per acre.

U.S. Gets Another Month To Revive Mideast Peace Talks

Arab ministers agreed Friday to give the United States another month to try to persuade Israel to renew curbs on West Bank settlement construction and keep Mideast peace talks from collapsing.

The one-month grace period followed a frantic effort by the Obama administration to broker a compromise as the sides faced rising friction over the stalemate. Underscoring the potential for violence, Israeli troops killed two senior Hamas militants in the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient for President "Semblance" (that something good could possibly occur from this grace period):this was engineered to last until just after the November election!

After this is over, watch Obama, Clinton, and Mitchell collectively drop this issue as though it were kryptonite.

Bush-dominated appeals court suppresses Gitmo evidence

A Guantanamo Bay detainee who says he was waterboarded lost a legal battle Friday when a federal appeals court ruled that the Obama administration can keep information secret that the prisoner wanted to make public.

In a 3-0 decision, the appeals court said U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle had failed to give substantial deference "to the government's assessment of its foreign relations and national security interests" if certain information were to be revealed. Huvelle had declared that "I don't understand how" revealing the information "will interfere in anything."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The point of this is not that the court is "Bush appointed": the point of this is that the cancer which is the paranoic "state above all, and the truth be damned" mentality evident here will metastasize and infect every aspect of American jurisprudence, which is frightening.

One can sense that American law is rapidly devolving into a "Code Napoleon" system where a person is presumed guilty until proven innocent, an absolutely evil inversion from the current legal norms in this country.

China Xiaoshan AIRPORT UFO 07/07/10

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another video of the "China UFO" which suggests that the current media obsession with UFOs is a repeat of the tactic in which space aliens are waved about to obfuscate evidence of top-secret aircraft/spacecraft development. Again this video suggest a hypersonic wave rider type craft, with indications of stage separation. At one point the exhaust changes from a parabolic shape to a true cone, which tells us the object has climbed above the atmosphere. The Aurora concept being tested in the US back in the late 1980s and early 1990s pre-dates the Scaled Composites design for Spaceship one, in which a large carrier craft takes a smaller ship up to altitude, then deploys it for a high speed high altitude exo-atmospheric run. This looks like what we are seeing here.

If China or Russia have succeeded where the US failed, then WW3 is already over and we did not win it.

Alternatively, we may be seeing what was built with that $3 trillion that went missing from the Pentagon budget in 2001 and the US is flying it over Russia and China to send a message to them.

Mystery UFO Light over China July 2010

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to be an experimental hypersonic "wave rider" aircraft of some kind, similar to the Aurora. It is flying high enough to still be in sunlight making the exhaust seem to glow. Because the rate of expansion of the exhaust is seen to slow down, the vehicle is within the upper atmosphere. That it is flying in sunlight over a major city does suggest this is an intentional display of some kind as normally such experimental craft are flight tested away from prying eyes.

Israeli soldiers to testify behind screen in Corrie Case

Haifa, Israel – The Haifa District Court on Thursday granted a government request to allow soldiers to testify behind a screen in the lawsuit filed by Rachel Corrie’s family against the State of Israel for her unlawful killing in Rafah, Gaza.

The order includes the driver of the bulldozer that killed Rachel, who is slated to testify later this month. However, Judge Oded Gershon ruled that both the commander of the unit and the second soldier in the bulldozer that hit Rachel would testify in plain view, because their faces were already publicly known.

Arab leaders know that with America’s mid-term elections fast approaching, there is no way a humiliated, increasingly desperate and isolated Obama can even think about applying real pressure on Israel. So why are they, Arab leaders, going through the motions? The short answer is that once again they are seeking to cover the ugly nakedness of their impotence.

Negotiating An Evaporating Palestine

The price of clinging to power and remaining in the good graces of the U.S. State Department has been forsaking Gaza. The Israeli government seized on this, bolstering Abbas’ stature by pretending they had found a trusted negotiating partner—all while the quiet annexation of land continued. But it is hard to solely blame Abbas. As Netanyahu stated, Israel has mastered the art of entering empty dialogue with Palestinians as new East Jerusalem and West Bank settlements are built.

Israel's Persecution of Ameer Makhoul

Sharon earlier, and Netanyahu today, share like-minded views; namely, that "relations with the Palestinians (are) a zero-sum game" in which Israel intends to gain at their expense, including its own Arab citizens. Both leaders spurn concessions, Sharon once saying, "This is our land, and we'll settle it and build on it in order to prevent the creation of a Palestinian state. We'll never give up this area." As a result, Palestinians have been ruthlessly persecuted, imprisoned, or slaughtered in gross violation of international laws.

Leaked letter reveals Obama's contempt for international law

We are all in trouble if the US president takes leave of his senses and jettisons integrity. The most powerful man in the world then becomes the most dangerous. I'm sure someone has reminded Mr Obama that Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention makes it crystal clear that the occupying power is forbidden to transfer parts of its own civilian population – Israel's half-million squatters – into the territory it occupies. What's more, in 2001 the High Contracting Parties of the Fourth Geneva Convention unanimously reaffirmed its applicability to the Palestinian Occupied Territories including East Jerusalem.

“Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.” This frosty statement was the conclusion of Rick Sanchez’s 6-year-long career with the United States’ cable news network, CNN.

The award-winning Sanchez who had served in CNN’s Spanish service and covered the September 11 attacks for the network was fired on October 1 after granting an interview to the Sirius XM’s radio show “Stand Up With Pete Dominick” in which he implied that the Jews are dominating the mass media in the United States and just pretend to be a downtrodden, subjugated minority.

There is Only One Way Out of the Foreclosure Crisis

Most major banks are insolvent and cannot (and should not) be saved. The best approach is something like a banking holiday for the largest 19 banks and shadow banks in which institutions are closed for a relatively brief period. Supervisors move in to assess problems. It is essential that all big banks be examined during the "holiday" to uncover claims on one another. It is highly likely that supervisors will find that several trillions of dollars of bad assets will turn out to be claims big financial institutions have on one another (that is exactly what was found when AIG was examined--which is why the government bail-out of AIG led to side payments to the big banks and shadow banks)...

Our Geert (Wilders) has utterly crazy friends.

In his attempts to prove Islam wants to conquer the world by force (brrr...!), arabic expert Hans Jansen appeared in the Amsterdam courtroom last Wednesday.
Hans, a fanatical catholic, agrees with Geert (Wilders) completely. He was asked if the Quran could indeed be compared to Hitlers Mein Kampf, like Geert has done.
His answer was: "there are more anti-semitic passages in the Quran than in that book".

Well, he must have thought, who in the world would go and check that? The court doesnt have Mein Kampf at hand. Everybody who does, and also a Quran (like me) knows this is complete nonsense. I refer Jansen to chapters 3 and 9 in volume 1, and the chapters 2 and 5 in volume 2. And the rest of it, all through de book.

Practicing suppression and mass detention of Israel's Arab citizens

This week Israel's security forces practiced the putting down of mass demonstrations and protests among Israel's Arab citizens and their imprisonment in a large detention camp to be established at Golani Junction in Galilee. The exercise was based on a scenario of the riots being provoked by implementation of Avigdor Lieberman's plan for "an exchange of populations", i.e. massively depriving Arabs of their Israeli citizenship.

"Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding two contradictory ideas simultaneously. The "ideas" or "cognitions" in question may include attitudes and beliefs, the awareness of one's behavior, and facts. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, or by justifying or rationalizing their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.[1] Cognitive dissonance theory is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology.
