"Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings and blood of their ancestors; and capable, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence...Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them." -- Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution

Scientists Say as Much as 79% of Oil Remains in Gulf of Mexico

A group of scientists says as much as 79 percent of BP Plc’s leaked oil remains in the Gulf of Mexico, challenging an Obama administration assessment that the crude is largely gone or rapidly disappearing.

Most of the oil that leaked from BP’s Macondo well from April 20 to July 15 is still beneath the water’s surface, five scientists including Samantha Joye, a professor of marine sciences at the University of Georgia in Athens, concluded in a memo made public yesterday. The researchers say they drew upon the U.S. government’s study while reaching different conclusions.

“One major misconception is that oil that has dissolved into water is gone and, therefore, harmless,” he said in a statement released yesterday. “The oil is still out there, and it will likely take years to completely degrade. We are still far from a complete understanding of what its impacts are.”

Nearly One Million Children in U.S. Potentially Misdiagnosed With ADHD, Study Finds

Such inappropriate treatment is particularly worrisome because of the unknown impacts of long-term stimulant use on children's health, Elder said. It also wastes an estimated $320 million-$500 million a year on unnecessary medication -- some $80 million-$90 million of it paid by Medicaid, he said.

And of course THAT is the motive; to sell pills regardless of whether they are really needed or not!

U.S. sends warning to Afghanistan, and John Kerry delivers the message

Karzai has stopped short of trying to shut down or significantly restrict the activities of the Major Crimes Task Force and the Sensitive Investigative Unit. But he has hinted he may seek to do so, a prospect that has caused concern among his Western patrons that has only increased as the Karzai government has failed to live up to its frequent promises to curb corruption.

Before an evening meeting with the Afghan president, Kerry told reporters he would lay down specific benchmarks that Karzai would need to meet in order to demonstrate that he was making good-faith efforts on the issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so just what is the US going to do if Karzai does absolutely nothing to end the rampant corruption in his country?

The US's options here seem extremely limited.

Everything Is A Lie: The Deliberate Intent To Deceive People Is At An All Time High

From pollution to politics, the era of deception and duplicity has reached new heights and hijacked almost every form of media in the world. In the last frontiers for truth such as the internet, disinformation operations are in full swing to discredit and destroy any semblance of authentic and factual information available to the public.

How many more lies will people around the world accept as truth? Some say a global awakening is taking place, but at what cost? Will it take the destruction of most of the earth and its resources before people are enlightened?

The escalating media and political reports are so far fetched, cunning, and so beyond reality, it's as if each is trying to top the other with one sinister plot after the next. To demonstrate the outright lies by national governments and the media, let's take three examples from the last year alone, including the H1N1 scandal, airport body scanners and the BP oil disaster.

Iran’s Victory

I said Israel would not attack Iran. Iran is too big, too far away, and hostile countries (to Israel) separate the two. Moreover, Israel would not take the chance to be perceived as the cause for the subsequent blockade of the Strait of Hormuz by Iran and the dramatic increase in fuel prices that would follow. I was heavily criticized on these. Readers and friends kept saying an Israeli attack was imminent, despite the arguments presented in my articles. Beyond that, an awesome quantity of articles on the media are exploring the possibility Israel would attack Iran; the date of the supposed attack changes faster than the weather. Now – or at least in a few days from now – this argument would be over: Israel would not be capable of attacking Bushehr.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hesitate to jump on the bandwagon that Israel will not attack the Iranian power station once it is fueled. Israel has not hesitated to shower depleted uranium all over Gaza and Lebanon. The prevailing winds would keep the radioactivity blowing away from Israel, and a Chernobyl-style nuclear disaster in the heart of Iran would not trouble Israel.

Colombia Court Halts US Military Base Deal

Colombia’s Constitutional Court has announced that it is suspending a deal to provide US troops with increased access to the nation’s military bases as part of “anti-drug” operations, insisting that such a deal could not be done unilaterally by the president.

Instead, President Juan Manuel Santos must seek congressional approval for the deal, and even then the court will almost certainly be challenged on the constitutionality of the deal. The court declined to even consider that aspect yet, insisting that it couldn’t do so until the deal was legally made in the first place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how this evolves, but bravo to the Columbian Constitutional Court for having come to the opinion that the President is legally forbidden from making this move unilaterally.

Is an Attack on Iran Imminent?

Attacks on operating nuclear power plants thus are unconscionable large-scale attacks on civilians, and would spark an enormous level of international condemnation on whoever launched the attack.

The threat to attack becomes infinitely less credible next week, which also means that, if Israeli or US officials are bound and determined to start a war, they may be obliged to do so in the next few days, for convenience sake if nothing else.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is nothing "convenient" about any planned attack against Iran by either the US or Israel.

It will be seen as an act of war against a country which has not started a war in over two centuries, and universally condemned because of that.

Such an attack, even if done before the window of loading the fuel rods, could go spectacularly badly, particularly if Russia and China (both nuclear armed nations) enter the fray on the side of Iran.

A war against Iran is a very bad idea, and not one that thinking Americans could ever get behind, what with with Afghanistan and Iraq in still in meltdown.

FLASHBACK - Secret, Foreign Money Floods Into Obama Campaign

More than half of the whopping $426.9 million Barack Obama has raised has come from small donors whose names the Obama campaign won't disclose.

FLASHBACK - Obama Campaign Disabled Address Verification for Online Donors

How does a candidate raise 700 million dollars in a recession?

What is the reason that the Obama campaign cannot verify information on donations below 200.00? Could it be that the campaign has disabled the credit card address verification feature as well as the 3 number code found the the reverse of the card? Both of these features are to prevent credit card fraud. With in the last few days, reporters have entered credit card numbers under various peoples names. The result? The Obama campaign credit card system comes back with a statement that says, "Thank you for your support".

FLASHBACK - Obama's Fishy $200 Million

An auditor for the Federal Election Commission is attempting to have his bosses seek a formal investigation into the collection by the Obama for President campaign of more than $200 million in potentially illegal political donations, including millions of dollars of illegal, foreign donations, and has sought a request for assistance from the Department of Justice or Federal Bureau of Investigation. But the analyst's requests have largely been ignored. "I can't get anyone to move. I believe we are looking at a hijacking of our political system that makes the Clinton and Gore fundraising scandals pale in comparison. And no one here wants to touch it."

Gilad Atzmon: BBC Panorama, An Exemplary Work of Clumsy Journalism

BBC’s Panorama failed yesterday in its attempt to cover the Israeli Massacre on the Mavi Marmara. 'Death on the Med' is an exemplary work of clumsy journalism. It broadcasted video footage stolen from peace activists on board. It repeated Neocon terminology by referring to Islamic driven political activism as 'Islamism'. It promised to provide some new evidence. But, instead, it recycled footage presented by the Israeli military that has long since been proven (and admitted as) faked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Britains need to wake up tho the fact that their media is just as corrupted by Israel as the US media!

US Says Bankruptcies Reach Nearly 5-Year High

U.S. bankruptcy filings have reached the highest level since 2005, government data released on Tuesday show, as the economy slows and the unemployment rate hovers just below double digits.

There were 422,061 bankruptcy filings between April and June, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, up 9 percent from 388,148 in the prior three-month period, and up 11 percent from 381,073 a year earlier.

last week, saying it was intended to keep its holdings of
domestic securities steady. When announcing the program at the

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reform: Would it add $5 trillion to US debt?

Former Pakistani Intel Chief Fears World War Three Is Imminent

Gul reiterated his stance on the 9/11 attacks, that it was a black operation to be used as a pretext for entering Afghanistan and using it as a launch pad to enter Pakistan and dominate the region.

Gul also spoke about the evidence that the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks were a Western controlled intelligence operation that was to be blamed on Pakistan, a claim he made shortly after the attacks which has since been vindicated by mainstream reports that US and Indian undercover agents were involved in the attacks.

The General also spoke on the death of former Pakistan leader Benazir Bhutto, reasserting his previous analysis that Bhutto was eliminated by a neocon controlled assassination squad after she “became rebellious” toward globalist interests.

Genetically Manipulated Crops: The GMO Catastrophe in the USA. A Lesson for the World

ABC Television, a major US national network, made a recent documentary about the super-weeds under the rubric, “super weeds that can’t be killed.”[1]

They interviewed farmers and scientists across Arkansas who described fields overrun with giant pigweed plants that can withstand as much glyphosate as farmers are able to spray. They interviewed one farmer who spent almost €400000 in only three months in a failed attempt to kill the new super-weeds.

The new super-weeds are so robust that harvester combines are unable to harvest the fields and hand tools break trying to cut them down. At least 400000 hectares of soybean and cotton in Arkansas alone have become invested with this new mutant biological plague. Detailed data on other agricultural regions is not available but believed similar. The pro-GMO and pro-agribusiness US Department of Agriculture has been reported lying about the true state of US crop harvest partly to hide the grim reality and to prevent an explosive revolt against GMO in the world’s largest GMO market.

The ‘Atlantic’ runs a rationale for war by a journalist embedded in the Israeli psychosis

I finally read Jeffrey Goldberg's piece on the likely Israeli attack on Iran in The Atlantic, The Point of No Return, and I'm surprised. Surprised that Goldberg would put it out there, given his role in promoting the Iraq war on a dubious basis and his admission last year on Israeli TV that Zionists have an interest re Iran that conflicts with the American interest; surprised that the Atlantic would run it, given the piece's relentless ethnocentrism and emotional appeal to Jews and the Israel lobby on behalf of the Obama hawks; and finally, surprised that more journalists have not stepped up to attack this dangerous piece as a crude manifestation of the Israel lobby in our politics.

Et Tu Obami, Stabbing the Gulf Coast in the Back?

By crafting this illusion of safe beaches, safe food, safe air, the President, BP, the Coast Guard and all the other prostituted government agencies are going to sucker God knows how many unknowing American men, women and children into poisoning, sickening or perhaps even killing themselves through cancers or organ failure by swimming, eating and breathing toxins that the former are callously trying to cover up for various underhanded motives. This is yet another stab in the back by Orwellian Obama and his gang of coverup artists, the very people who are supposed to be protecting us, while a criminal corporation, you know who, clearly the Alpha Dog here, calls the main shots.

Delusional Americans all over the country believed in the new internet paradigm. Fools thought "bricks and mortar" retailers were dead. Morons quit their jobs so they could get rich day trading. Wall Street hucksters took advantage of this hysteria by attaching .COM to every ridiculous IPO they shilled to the American public. Wall Street knew these companies were pieces of crap, but they churned out the IPOs as quickly as possible while the getting was good. The Wall Street oligarchs made billions and the delusional American public got screwed. You would think that average Americans would have learned their lesson after this experience. Theydid not. They continued to buy into the Wall Street lies about stocks being a sure pathto riches. The fact is that the S&P 500 is currently at the same level it was in March 1998. On an inflation adjusted basis, it is 25% below the level of 1998. You don't hear this information on CNBC because the oligarchs that control the media need the delusion to continue in order to harvest more riches from the ignorant masses.

Video: What a Gravity-Driven Demolition Looks Like (not like the WTC towers)

David Chandler (high school physics teacher): The official story is that the North Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed due to gravity. This has been critiqued in an analysis by Graeme MacQueen and Tony Szamboti, and in a related analysis by David Chandler (both in the Journal of 9/11 Studies). The Balzac-Vitry demolition was a true gravity-driven collapse. The same analysis that was applied to the World Trade Center is here applied to this known demolition, with contrasting results. This analysis supports the conclusions of both papers referred to above: the North Tower of the World Trade Center was not a natural, gravity-driven collapse.
This ain't rocket science, folks. It's basic high school level physics, and David Chandler shows in this video that if the toadies at NIST were back in high school they'd be unlikely to earn more than an 'F' in the final exam. /StingRay

Ken O’Keefe: A Beautiful Gift from the BBC

By Ken O’Keefe
If you Haven’t Seen It, Check out the BBC Panorama’s “Death in the Med” program (watch video below) and You’ll be Treated to First Class Propaganda as Only the BBC Can Deliver

I am one of the passengers/witnesses interviewed for this program and I am very much aware of BBC’s role in justifying war and covering up Israeli crimes.

“The dispersant is moving the oil down out of the surface and into the deeper waters” a marine microbiologist at USF told CNN.

Google still censoring Climategate?

For many weeks now, readers have been sending me emails describing how Google has been doing its best to hide information relating to Climategate, which has been the single biggest story on the Internet since the Climategate emails came to light on November 19. By Nov. 26, the term had gone viral and Google returned more results for “climategate” (10.4 million) than for “global warming” (10.1 million). As the Climate Scandal exploded, and increasing numbers of blog sites covered it, the number of web pages with Climategate continued to climb. On Dec. 7, Google’s search engine found 31.6 million hits for people who searched for “Climategate.”

New paper makes a hockey sticky wicket of Mann et al

We find that the proxies do not predict temperature significantly better than random series generated independently of temperature. Furthermore, various model specifications that perform similarly at predicting temperature produce extremely different historical backcasts. Finally, the proxies seem unable to forecast the high levels of and sharp run-up in temperature in the 1990s either in-sample or from contiguous holdout blocks, thus casting doubt on their ability to predict such phenomena if in fact they occurred several hundred years ago.

NOAA: Warmest June Ever! Caveat: We Made It Up

NOAA gets its temperature data from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies. They calculate the average temperature of the Earth using data from land-based thermometers and ocean buoy and ship measurements of water temperature. However, there is a major problem with how GISS measures temperature in a very large region — the Arctic.

The problem is that they don’t have any thermometers there. So they make it up. No, really!

Ground-Zero Mosque May Be Issue for Republicans After Obama Backs Building

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The obvious campaign strategy for November is ABTE, as in Anything But The Economy. The Ground Zero Mosque, Gay Marriage, Illegal Immigrants; all these are being waved around by the media to convince you these are the important issues for you to vote on while ignoring the things that really affect your life, which are the economy, the ongoing wars, the pending wars, and of course, Israel's continued rule over Washington DC.

Do NOT fall for this.

You decide for yourself what the real issues of this election are! What is effecting YOUR life directly; That is what you vote on!

Dengue Fever Outbreak Leads Back to CIA & Army Experiments

The recent outbreak of dengue fever is being portrayed by the media as a fortuitous reemergence of the disease in Florida and elsewhere in the United States after 75 years. Yet Hank Albarelli’s probe reveals that the US Army and CIA have been experimenting with dengue fever for years with the aim of weaponizing insects to be released against unwitting populations, as was previously done in Florida and elsewhere. Moreoever, Albarelli draws attention to the eerie similarity between dengue fever symptoms and those linked to the toxic emanations in the Gulf of Mexico and warns of the looming disaster that could unfold from the overlap.

Glick is actually alleging that anyone who practices critical history of the ancient world or the Middle East in general is thereby an anti-Jewish bigot. Glick, from Chicago, was a captain in the Israeli army and a judge advocate-general during the first Intifada or Palestinian uprising against the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, which the Israeli army brutally crushed. She seems to be going off the deep end, having made herself notorious with the sick satirical video ‘We Con the World,’ which made fun of the civilian aid workers killed by Israeli commandos on May 31 of this year (and which appears to have had some backing from the Israeli government itself).

Everything Is A Lie: The Deliberate Intent To Deceive People Is At An All Time High

From pollution to politics, the era of deception and duplicity has reached new heights and hijacked almost every form of media in the world.

White House Directive: Erect Signs at All Stimulus Projects as ‘Symbol of President Obama’s Commitment to American People’

Federal contractors receiving money for projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)—the $862 billion economic stimulus law President Barack Obama signed in February 2009—have been encouraged and, in some cases, required by the administration to post signs that say their work is funded by that specific act.

Some congressional Republicans are calling the signs propaganda for the administration and questioning their cost.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And they are right. Those signs are "Look what I did" campaign placards at $10,000 each.

Karzai wants private security firms out of Afghanistan

KABUL -- American officials were stunned Monday by a surprise announcement from President Hamid Karzai's spokesman calling for the dissolution within four months of the private security companies that foreign armies and aid organizations in Afghanistan rely on to do their daily work.

The move signaled a new effort by the Karzai government to assert Afghan control over the work of foreigners, and it presented a fresh challenge to the United States government, which quickly made clear its belief that the deadline was too ambitious.


Good move on President Karzai, hopefully requiring the pull out of private security, lessons the burden of the American tax-payer. But I have a doubt, for this country is drunk on American tax money. - kdtroxel

Obama demands access to Internet records without court review

'Big Brother is watching you.' Yet another move toward a totalitarian government has secretly occurred that bears ominous signals for personal freedom.

Barack Obama is demanding access to the Internet records of average citizens, in secret, and without court review.

"The Obama administration is seeking authority from Congress that would compel internet service providers (ISPs) to turn over records of an individual's internet activity for use in secretive FBI probes.

"In another instance where Americans are urged to trust their political minders, The Washington Post reported last month that "the administration wants to add just four words--'electronic communication transactional records'--to a list of items that the law says the FBI may demand without a judge's approval."

It Came from Beneath the Valley of the New Shangri-La.

A very annoying and clueless individual was haranguing me recently about seeking money from the same sources that I criticize and being nasty about it at the same time, yadda yadda. I am seeking and going to get the funds from the universe, regardless of the medium and it should be understood that though I have lived, by choice, with very little for long periods of time that I do not question the relevance of money or the coming and going of civilizations. I question motives and methodologies and mostly because they are inefficient, not because they are wrong. Criticism, with the intent of improvement, is a most worthy tool.

FLASHBACK - Fractured Seafloor Around BP Well Seeping Oil (RAW ROV VIDEO)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A reminder that thew wells themselves are not the only problem.

Aug 17 10:26


According to documents filed by British Petroleum with the US Minerals Management Service, there are two wells in the area of the spill. The first well, Well "A", was drilled early this year, ran into troubles, and was abandoned. Then Well B was drilled, which resulted in the explosion which destroyed the Deepwater Horizon. (

There is a typo on page 10 of the MMS PDF regarding the Y coordinate for well B. The Y coordinate is correctly printed on page 3 and page 11. You will see that the dyslexic person who typed out the report switched a '1' and a '4' on page 10. Please be aware of this because otherwise it will lead to a lot of confusion!!)

Censored Gulf news: Spike Lee, Sandra Bullock exposing fascist lies and deceit next targets?

Pensacola News Journal reports in "Military Notes" that employees of Eglin Air Force Base are digging up sea turtle eggs. Contrary to most news reports claiming that there is no oil and Gulf waters are safe for swimming and to eat the Gulf seafood, the remarkable turtle initiative is "to protect the hatchlings from toxic oil remaining in the Gulf." (See link below) This is more consideration than given to Gulf Coast pregnant women's unborn or children, the most susceptible to the toxins.

When University Scientists Found Underwater Oil Plumes, the Government Said Shut Up, Don't Tell Anyone ... and Then Tried to Discredit Them

NOAA has repeatedly denied the existence of underwater oil plumes (see this and this), calculated the spill to be only 5,000 barrels a day, and buried core data on the oil spill.

Now, university scientists have revealed the NOAA used strong-arm tactics to try to silence any information on underwater plumes.

NOAA Hoarding Key Data On Oil Spill Damage

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is hoarding vast amounts of raw data that independent marine researchers say could help both the public and scientists better understand the extent of the damage being caused by the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

In most cases, NOAA insists on putting the data through a ponderous, many-weeks-long vetting process before making it public.

In other cases, NOAA actually intended to keep the data secret indefinitely. But officials told the Huffington Post on Tuesday that they have now decided to release it -- though when remains unclear.

BP, incidentally, gets to see all this data right away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NOAA, it needs to be remembered, is already mired in a Climategate scandal in which at least 5 satellites intended to prove global warming have been revealed as over-stating measured temperatures by as much as 10-15 degrees F.

Top Scientists vs. Feds: Up to 80 PERCENT of BP’s crude remains in Gulf — Submerged oil can’t evaporate

The major media outlets are reporting today that a group University of Georgia scientists, which includes Dr. Samantha Joye, says around 3/4 of BP’s oil is still in the Gulf of Mexico. Five days ago we reported on similar findings by a Florida university, “150 million gallons remain”; USF professor says 75 percent of oil has yet to be found. Thankfully, today’s news appears it will have a greater impact.

The Associated Press reports, “Five Georgia scientists who reviewed the data said Monday that instead of only 26 percent of the oil remaining, as a federal report said earlier this month, it’s actually closer to 80 percent.”
