Swine flu: can we have our £1 billion back now, please?

Journalist dies, oinking horribly, after failing to take Swine Flu seriously. That was the title I gave one of my first Telegraph blogs – April 27th 2009 – well aware that I was offering up a tremendous hostage to fortune. My how they would all have laughed darkly if I’d caught swine flu and died! But I didn’t, did I? And nor strangely did you.

Geoengineering Conference To Discuss Blocking Sun

As hundreds of people die worldwide as a result of record low temperatures in the midst of a savage winter, scientists are preparing for a conference in which they will discuss measures to use geoengineering to block out the sun.

“The summit of climate scientists, to be held in California in March, will examine drastic techniques for slowing climate change that are controversial and have been described as “geo-piracy,” reports the Telegraph.

Massive biological attack drill begins

Days after an acid attack in downtown Hong Kong, and in preparation for a non-conventional attack on Israel, the National Emergency Authority (NEA) will hold the largest-ever exercise to train security forces how to respond to a citywide biological attack.

Defense officials said Tuesday that Israel needs to be prepared for a biological attack.

"We need to be ready for everything that can happen," said one senior official, who is involved in planning the drill. "There are crazy people running around the world who, with the right materials and access to the Internet, can carry out such an attack."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder about the timing of this drill; why now??

Massive Israeli Biological Attack Drill Begins

A two-day exercise simulating a response to a biological warfare attack will begin Wednesday in the Dan region. The exercise, which will be the largest of its kind in Israel's history, will be carried out in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan and Holon, seeks to evaluate the ability of the Home Front, medical services, rescue teams and municipal authorities to respond to conditions created by a biological catastrophe caused either by terrorists or by some kind of accident.

"Should the (security) situation deteriorate, we'll hold the Lebanese government and all those who help Hezbollah responsible," said Barak at an Israeli occupation army outpost overlooking south Lebanon's villages.

Israel Dragging Gaza to New War: Analysts

With its recent aggressions, Israel is trying to provoke the Palestinian resistance factions into retaliatory attacks that could be used as a pretext for launching a new deadly offensive on the war-ravaged Gaza Strip, analysts believe.

"The message in the recent attacks is very clear, and the resistance should read it carefully," Talal Okal, a political analyst, told IslamOnline.net.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Hamas and Fatah leadership: please do everything in your power to get over your differences, and speak for the Palestinian people with one voice which cannot be ignored, either by Israel or the world.

Also, please remember what Gandhi was able to do in India with non-violent resistance.

13 Afghan demonstrators killed by NATO

Villagers in southern Afghanistan have claimed that Afghan and Nato forces killed 13 demonstrators after a group of people took to the streets to protest the alleged desecration of the Quran.

Haji Abdul Manan, one of the protesters, told the German Press Agency, DPA: "The people came out of their homes today to protest this action of foreign forces in a peaceful way, but the Afghan and international forces opened fire on us."

Ambrose-Evans Pritchard notes:

"Fitch expects the combined state and federal debt to reach 94pc of GDP next year, up from 57pc at the end of 2007. Federal interest costs will reach 13pc of revenues, meaning that an eighth of all taxes will go to service debt."

PALESTINE…. WHERE COMEDY ISN’T ALWAYS FUNNY….THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATIRE AND IGNORANCE

For a Palestinian to write what he did is nothing but a disgrace. He is literally spitting in the face of a million and a half of his own brothers and sisters that live in Gaza today, not to mention the thousands of internationals that have been dedicated to help alleviate their suffering. The zionists obviously love his words as they published them, another indication of how vile they are.

Pipeline Geopolitics: Major Turnaround. Russia, China, Iran Redraw Energy Map

We are witnessing a new pattern of energy cooperation at the regional level that dispenses with Big Oil. Russia traditionally takes the lead. China and Iran follow the example. Russia, Iran and Turkmenistan hold respectively the world's largest, second-largest and fourth-largest gas reserves. And China will be consumer par excellence in this century. The matter is of profound consequence to the US global strategy.

Iranian Scientist Assassinated as US Steps Up War Threats

Massoud Ali Mohammadi, one of Iran’s leading nuclear scientists, was assassinated in Tehran Tuesday, just two days after the top US military commander in the region announced that the Pentagon has drawn up plans to bomb Iranian nuclear sites.

Iran’s press TV commented, “It seems that kidnap and assassination of Iranian scientists is on the agenda of the United States.”

Given the growing bellicosity of Washington’s threats over the Iranian nuclear program, together with the fact that the US and Israel are the leading practitioners of the criminal policy of targeted assassinations, Tehran’s charges cannot be dismissed so easily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo the the adults in the room in Tel Aviv and Washington; any attack against Iran may well bring Russia and China into a war on the side of Iran.

Russia and China do have nukes.

Danish neocons stage phony terrorist plot

According to the Somali man’s sister, the attack on Westergaard may have been part of an elaborate plot by the Danish Security Intelligence Service (Politiets Efterretningstjeneste or PET), to ratchet up tensions between Muslim and non-Muslim Danes and feed the current propaganda effort to breathe new life into the ”all Muslims are potential terrorists” campaign by neocons and Israeli propaganda operatives around the world, especially in the wake of the Christmas Day ”underwear bomb” plot on Delta/Northwest Airlines flight 253 over Detroit. WMR previously reported the airline plot was yet another neocon false flag event.

Obama’s Alternate Universe

When the Obama administration is finally confronted with the reality that there is no possibility for viable economic sanctions against Iran, and that the reform movement inside Iran will never be able to force a regime change in Tehran, war with Iran, however insane and unpalatable, becomes the only option. In the end, it is not the theocracy in Tehran, or an Iranian nuclear program, that will push America to war with Iran, but rather American policy itself, designed as it is not to solve any tangible problem emerging from Iran, but rather to mollify domestic political pressures at home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "domestic political pressures" are not pushing this country toward an insane, and possibly, global war; it is the foreign policy of Israel which is driving this potential war.

Washington is merely dancing, catatonically, to its master's tune, and the lyrics of that tune are always the same: the US must "neutralize" any country in the region Israel defines as an "existential threat".

That pretty means just about every other country in the region of the Middle East!

Shameless, swaggering and STILL lying: Alastair Campbell 'stands by every word' of 45-minute dodgy dossier that took us to war with Iraq

Alastair Campbell was accused last night of peddling a shameless litany of lies at the Iraq Inquiry.

In a provocative six-hour display, the spin doctor denied doing anything to 'beef up' the case for going to war.

And he dismissed the overwhelming evidence of government papers and his own diaries that he pressured spy chiefs to harden Tony Blair's 'dodgy' dossier on Iraqi weapons.

Truth Will Prevail by Gilad Atzmon

The Israeli government doesn’t think twice before it orders a genocidal attack against civilians. Israeli military leaders do not think twice before they drop bombs on one of the most densely populated places on the planet. They also do not hesitate whether to use artillery shells against a UN refugee shelter. The Israeli people do not think twice before they approve en masse their army’s inhuman tactics. But for some bizarre reason, the Israelis are devastated to find out that the rest of humanity is coming to terms with their true nature. Once again it is a Turkish TV drama that exposes the Israelis for what they are. A murderous collective motivated by vengeance.

Giving corporations an outsized voice in elections

Corporations are pitching a bizarre product -- a radical vision of the 1st Amendment. It would give corporations rather than voters a central role in our electoral process by treating corporate political spending as protected speech. If this vision becomes reality, businesses and other big-money players will spend billions either hyping their preferred candidates or running attack ads against elected officials who don't support their preferred agenda. Voters will be forced into a couch-potato role, mere viewers of the electoral spectacle bought and paid for by wealthy companies.

More evidence emerges that Americans are drugged out of their minds

As NaturalNews has previously reported, the U.S. is a nation seemingly hooked on mind-altering drugs (http://www.naturalnews.com/027054_d...). A study released last fall in the Archives of General Psychiatry documented a dramatic increase in the use of antidepressant drugs like Prozac since l996. In fact, these medications are now the most widely prescribed drugs in the U.S.

India, China relations to worsen further

The Chinese military have been carrying out incursions into Indian side and its jet fighters have been violating the Indian airspace, especially along LAC in Indian administered Kashmir. Of late, the Chinese incursions and air space violations have witnessed manifold increase. On July 31, 2009, Chinese military had entered nearly 1.5 km deep inside into the Indian territory near Mount Gya in IaK and painted “CHINA” on boulders and rocks in red spray paint.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China is encroaching on Indian border territory because it can, and India doesn't have the kind of military prowess necessary to fight back effectively.

The US is unlikely to be of any help with China right now, because it is defaulting on a huge loan from the Chinese government.

REPOSSESSION FIGURE 'IS BOGUS'

TWICE as many families have lost their home in the recession than official figures suggest, the Tories claim.

Auschwitz asks Britain for help to preserve decaying death camp

Mr Kastelaniec will go to the Cabinet Office tomorrow to press the Government on Gordon Brown’s promise to contribute to a €120million (£110million) endowment fund that will guarantee the preservation of one of the main sites of the Holocaust.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why doesn't Israel pay for the upkeep? They are the ones shamelessly using Auschwitz as political cover for their crimes in Gaza.

Or charge an admissions fee and let the public show whether they think this is important to save or not.

Personally, I think it is time to stop worshiping the history of the middle of the last century and start living in the present. We have war crimes and genocide and atrocities taking place right here, right now, before our eyes. WE need to gbe dealing with those crimes.

Hitler was an egomaniac who wanted to be remembered for a thousand years. I say it is time to stop giving him what he wanted. He wasn't the first genocidal monster and sadly he will not be the last. He is undeserving of the deification our popular culture wastes on him.

AIDS: The great medical con

The person who announced that HIV caused AIDS was an American, Doctor Robert Gallo. He has since been accused of professional misconduct, his test has been exposed as fraudulent, and two of his laboratory executives have been convicted of criminal offenses. Tens of millions of people are tested for HIV antibodies every year and Dr Gallo, who patented his "test", gets a royalty for every one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not the first time Gallo has been accused of allowing the race to a patent with the Pasteur Institute in Paris to lead him into a premature and erroneous announcement of having found the cause for AIDS.

But in the wake of Climategate, and the triple hoax of SARS/Bird Flu/Swine Flu clearly intended to extract wealth from the people of the world, it may be time to take a closer look at the hoaxes surrounding the AIDS industry.

US offers support for anti-Palestinian steel walls

The United States has offered its full-fledged support for the building of a wall by Egypt to disrupt the Gaza Strip's lifeline that moves basic items underground past the Israeli-imposed blockade.

The construction of the steel tunnel-impervious wall, believed to have started some time in November, comes in line with Israeli and Egyptian accusations that Palestinians resistance fighters use the tunnels for procuring and storing weapons for use against the Israelis.

Washington, the chief Israeli baker, echoed the allegations on Tuesday and voiced support for installing the steel walls, which are reported to be designed by the US army engineers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to even more intense "normal"suffering for Palestinians, courtesy of your tax dollars which are paying for the engineering of these walls.

The rise of the permanent temporary workforce

You know American workers are in bad shape when a low-paying, no-benefits job is considered a sweet deal. Their situation isn't likely to improve soon; some economists predict it will be years, not months, before employees regain any semblance of bargaining power. That's because this recession's unusual ferocity has accelerated trends — including offshoring, automation, the decline of labor unions' influence, new management techniques, and regulatory changes — that already had been eroding workers' economic standing.

Facebook unleashes lawyers on Web 2.0 Suicide Machine

In a nutshell, the Rotterdam-based Suicide Machine helps users of Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn -- and, once upon a time, Facebook -- sever ties quickly and painlessly with the real and faux friends they've accumulated in their social networking travels. (Introductory video here.) More than 58,000 friendships have been so severed since the site began gathering attention among news outlets and bloggers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Social networking is just another fad, one that is waning as people go back to using the internet for finding out what the government is up to, rather than just chatting each other up.

The idea of personal space in real life is that you control where and when you get information. The problem with all social networking sites is that over time you become deluged with tr4i8vial junk (not unlike TV) and find yourself thrashing about in way too much data and unable to really evaluate it all (not unlike TSA).

The current trend is back towards a more selective allowing of intrusion.

Obama will seek additional $33 billion for wars

The Obama administration plans to ask Congress for an additional $33 billion to fight unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, on top of a record request for $708 billion for the Defense Department next year, The Associated Press has learned.

The administration also plans to tell Congress next month that its central military objectives for the next four years will include winning the current wars while preventing new ones and that its core missions will include both counterinsurgency and counterterrorism operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First, with a population already taxed to death, where the blazes does the Obama administration think it's going to get this additional 33 billion dollars??

And secondly, what is their definition of "winning" the war in Afghanistan? The US and NATO forces can barely hold Kabul.

And the Taliban has developed governmental and judicial systems in parallel with that the Karzai regime which actually seem to be functioning, much to the chagrin of the current "official "government.

...A flagrant violation of Pakistan's sovereignty, these strikes speak volumes about the Obama Administration's unilateralist policies and military adventurism resembling the situation in Afghanistan where thousands of civilians have been crushed to death so far, thanks to a joystick controlled thousands of miles away in the US and raining missiles on a hapless population. Since the first strike in Damodola back in 2006, countless Pakistani civilians have lost their lives. Just the previous year, reports have it that around 700 people were killed in 44 strikes, only five of which had hit actual targets. What the US falsely reports as militants' compounds usually turn out to be houses belonging to innocent families having no connection with extremists.

Google may exit China after 'highly targeted' attack

Google plans to curb its controversial practice of censoring search results in China after uncovering a "highly sophisticated and targeted attack" designed to steal information about human rights activists from its Gmail service and at least 20 other large companies.

The attack that hit Google in mid-December originated in China and was aimed at accessing the Gmail accounts of human rights activists. Although only two email accounts appear to have been breached, "accounts of dozens of US-, China- and Europe-based Gmail users who are advocates of human rights in China" have been routinely breached, most likely as a result of phishing or malware attacks, the company said Tuesday.

David Ray Griffin's new essay: Phone Calls from the 9/11 Airliners

Although this essay has focused on details, often minute, in merely one aspect of the official account of 9/11, the implications are enormous. Without the widespread assumption that the 9/11 attacks had been planned and carried out by al-Qaeda, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would not have been possible. With regard to the war in Afghanistan in particular, Michel Chossudovsky has recently emphasized the fact that NATO’s decision to support this US-led war was based on a briefing by Frank Taylor of the US State Department, in which he provided what was called conclusive evidence of al-Qaeda’s responsibility for the attacks.121 Although the contents of Taylor’s briefing have never been made public, the main evidence provided to the general public has consisted of the hijack-describing phone calls reportedly received from passengers and flight attendants aboard the airliners. But when subjected to a detailed analysis, these alleged phone calls, far from supporting the war-justifying story, lead to a very different conclusion: that these alleged calls were faked. This analysis thereby suggests that the entire 9/11 story used to justify the US-led wars is a lie.
