From Blackwater to Xe, the Templar Crusade

X is an archaic form of abbreviation for Christ and/or Christian that was derived from the cross and the Greek Alphabet. X or Chi is the Greek letter that is the initial of "Christos" - X - which at the same time served as a symbol for the cross. Sometimes written Chi-Rho, (Xp) is another abbreviation for Christos and his followers, the Christians. From the perspective of medieval Christian symbology, 'Xe' is a combination of the Christic cross and the Greek letter, Epsilon, the first letter in the Greek word, Evangelion, glad tidings or gospel. From the perspective of a modern member of the Knights Templar, Xe is immediately recognizable as it symbolizes Christian Evangelism.

"An intense Israeli build-up of forces during the past 24 hours has been observed along the eastern sector of the Blue Line, with mobile and fixed patrols," said NNA.
It added that "Israeli tank emplacements were spotted amid intense overflights by helicopter gunships and warplanes."

Obama mobilizes military reservists to reinforce Haiti aid

US President Barack Obama Sunday mobilized military reserves to help quake-hit Haiti, particularly medical staff to work on hospital ships and Coast Guard staff to secure the ports.

Haiti: UN/USA partners in preventing aid

Haiti: Too Many Cooks…
The Earthquake devastated Haiti last Tuesday afternoon. On Sunday evening, five days later, only 60% of the disaster area has been covered, water is not reaching those most in need, heavy lifting gear is bottled up at the airport and the people are understandably getting desperate.
For those who claim that the UNO had no contingency plans, it is a pity that international media can print or broadcast not only half-truths but also blatant lies. The United Nations Organization has been drawing up contingency plans for years, holds workshops regularly and constantly updates and upgrades its humanitarian relief capacity.

Maimed Afghan hero tells Gordon Brown to bring troops home from 'unwinnable' war

The 20-year-old fusilier is determined to return to duty with the Army and fight again for his country.

Yet in a heartfelt interview he has described the war against the Taliban as hopeless - and said British troops should be brought home. Gordon Brown, he suggests, is simply afraid to admit defeat.

Minor 'crimes' of the middle classes raking in a £400m fortune for cash-hungry councils

More than £400million a year is being raised by police and town halls targeting minor 'middle-class' crimes.

They are hitting millions of people with tickets for speeding, parking, litter and even putting out bins on the wrong day.

The 'offenders' are being caught using a range of increasingly advanced surveillance techniques, including spy cameras.

The amount raked in from 'soft crimes' includes £330million in parking fines, £100million from speeding tickets and £12million from spot fines for offences such as over-filling a dustbin so its lid will not close.

Haitians Have Had 100 Years of This-They Don't Need More

The Heritage Foundation quote is revealing:

"In addition to providing immediate humanitarian assistance, the U.S. response to the tragic earthquake in Haiti offers opportunities to re-shape Haiti’s long-dysfunctional government and economy as well as to improve the public image of the United States in the region."


The last thing Haiti needs is for the US to use this as an excuse to continue shaping their government.

Also, it's not surprising that the Heritage Foundation would treat a massive human tragedy like this as a marketing opportunity. This is exactly the kind of people they are.

US accused of annexing airport as squabbling hinders aid effort in Haiti

The US military's takeover of emergency operations in Haiti has triggered a diplomatic row with countries and aid agencies furious at having flights redirected.

Brazil and France lodged an official protest with Washington after US military aircraft were given priority at Port-au-Prince's congested airport, forcing many non-US flights to divert to the Dominican Republic.

You believe in nothing, you say? Well, you're on the right track. Jefferson and Buddha agreed that God gave us our minds to use, not to turn off and obey weird rules we don't really understand.

World misled over Himalayan glacier meltdown

A WARNING that climate change will melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 is likely to be retracted after a series of scientific blunders by the United Nations body that issued it.


In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC's 2007 report.

It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.

Hasnain has since admitted that the claim was "speculation" and was not supported by any formal research.

Haiti Earthquake Hides the Cracks of Hypocrisy

This has been a quick response and all of those who have been helping, donating and providing assistance should be commended. The United States has been a big pusher of a lot of this, the US news media has basically become a 24 hour ad like the ones you see asking for donations to help the orphaned children. Israel has been a big medical supplier and it has not gone unnoticed by the media either.

Yemen: Toward Another US Quagmire

Like his predecessor, Obama is recklessly plunging into impoverished Yemen in a bid to shore up US strategic and economic interests in the Middle East. At this stage, the Pentagon has ruled out sending US troops. This reflects concerns that as well as the US military being overstretched by the neo-colonial occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan, sending in ground forces would intensify opposition to President Saleh’s autocratic and widely detested rule.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, with military campaigns all over the Middle East, what the finite upper limit may be to how many contract mercenaries the US can hire before the US if forced to re-institute some kind of draft/national service policy.

Behind The Der Spiegel Tirades

At the beginning of the new year, German weekly magazine Der Spiegel ran a controversial report claiming that the Lebanese movement Hezbollah was involved in drug trafficking to finance its “terrorist operations against Israel”. The article proceeded to allege that individuals involved in the cartel had contacts with the central nexus of the resistance movement including its Secretary-General. Needless to state, no factual evidence was cited in support of the claims as in the case of a growing list of previous smear-campaigns.

Mohammed al-Sabah said the policies of "Israel's stupid and insane prime minister" had jeopardized the so-called peace process, but that the Kuwaiti government remained committed to an Arab peace plan put forward by Saudi Arabia and would keep working to heal a split between the major Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas.

The Militarization of Emergency Aid to Haiti: Is it a Humanitarian Operation or an Invasion?

While presidents Obama and Préval spoke on the phone, there were no reports of negotiations between the two governments regarding the entry and deployment of US troops on Haitian soil. The decision was taken and imposed unilaterally by Washington. The total lack of a functioning government in Haiti was used to legitimize, on humanitarian grounds, the sending in of a powerful military force, which has de facto taken over several governmental functions.

US Envoy: Brutal Attacks Erode Militants' Support

The brutality of Taliban attacks in northwest Pakistan has cost the militants public support, the U.S. special envoy to the region said Saturday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Only if you believe the Taliban are doing it.

Would George Washington have targeted innocent American civilians? No, of course not. Washington NEEDED the support of his fellow citizens against a foreign invader and the same applies here. The Taliban is fighting the US, not their neighbors and friends. Of course, the US, probably killing as many innocent civilians as they are down in Pakistan, would love to pin the blame on the Taliban specifically to sabotage their popular support. But a moment's thought reveals that such a claim just does not make any real sense at all. Whenever you see or hear a report that the insurgents in any war are killing their own people, just ask transfer the story to Washington and the boys and ask if it would make sense there. Would they really kill their own people? What possible benefit would they gain? Then, when you realize that Washington and his boys do not benefit from killing their fellow colonials, ask who does benefit from such a story being put out.

Obama Executive Order Seeks to "Synchronize and Integrate" State and Federal Military Forces

In the wake of the Flight 253 provocation, over-hyped terrorism panics, and last year's Big Pharma and media-engineered hysteria over the H1N1 flu pandemic, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13528 on January 11.

Clearly designed to weaken the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which bars the use of the military for civilian law enforcement, EO 13528 is the latest in a series of maneuvers by previous administrations to wrest control of armed forces historically under the democratic control of elected state officials, and a modicum of public accountability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder under what conditions the mechanisms of this Executive Order would be invoked.

Diskin to Abbas: Defer UN vote on Goldstone or face 'second Gaza'

The request by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the United Nations Human Rights Council last year to postpone the vote on the Goldstone report followed a particularly tense meeting with the head of the Shin Bet security service, Haaretz has learned. At the October meeting in Ramallah, Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin told Abbas that if he did not ask for a deferral of the vote on the critical report on last year's military operation, Israel would turn the West Bank into a "second Gaza."

According to Rachel Myers at the ACLU, while there was previous evidence of requests from the "field" that the videotapes be destroyed, this is our first verification of the exact date CIA headquarters gave its approval.

Taliban increasingly targets civilians in eastern Afghanistan

One major challenge that remains is the Taliban targeting innocent civilians, Army Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Schloesser said during a videoconference with reporters at the Pentagon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
Would George Washington have targeted innocent American civilians? No, of course not. Washington NEEDED the support of his fellow citizens against a foreign invader and the same applies here.

Civilian Casualties Soar; Key Afghan Metric Headed In Wrong Direction

The rising number of innocent Afghan casualties constitutes a major failure for the American forces if judged by the standards set out by General Stanley McChrystal in the summer of 2009, when he testified before Congress.

American success in Afghanistan should be measured by "the number of Afghans shielded from violence," not the number of enemy fighters killed, he said at the time.

According to the UN report, it is the Taliban that is killing more and more civilians. Civilian deaths at the hands of American-led forces actually declined dramatically last year. But as Wood wrote, "the perception among most Afghans is that the United States is responsible when Afghans are killed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What McChrystal said was simply for US public consumption, and had nothing to do with the realities on the ground in Afghanistan.


1. The US and NATO will simply go on maiming, mutilating, and killing Afghans either until the nation is "pacified" enough for the pipelines to be installed to control Eurasian oil,


2. We leave, very much like the armies of the old Soviet Union did, ultimately negotiating with whatever government is left standing to lease the pipeline rights. There is no middle ground here.

And let's think about that statement in the UN report that "...it is the Taliban that is killing more and more civilians."

First, there appear to be zero statistics the UN brings to bear to back up that claim.

And secondly, if the Taliban is trying to build consensus among the Afghan people that they're the "good guys" in this conflict, would the logical extension of that consensus-building process be slaughtering their own!?

Brown Supporters: The Most Motivated Voters Ever?

In a typical campaign, the hardest part is getting people to actually do things—show up at events, make phone calls, etc. They all talk a good game, but what you usually end up with is a hard core group of activists begging folks just to put a sign in their yards. That’s why money is so important—so campaigns can pay people to do the work. Even Obama had to use money to get his “community activist” campaign off the ground in early 2008.

Scott Brown is having the opposite problem. People are begging for stuff to do, and the campaign can’t keep up with the demand. On Saturday, driving between Ashland and Littleton, I saw more people displaying home made signs than printed ones.

Americans Pledge Millions, but Cash Flow Takes Weeks

Thousands of Americans have pledged $9 million to Haitian relief agencies this week by punching a code and sending a text on their cellphones. But it could be weeks, if not months, before any of that money actually can be used.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, CNN, and users of Twitter Inc. have urged people to punch 90999 and then type in the word "HAITI" on their phones to send $10 to the American Red Cross. But the money won't be routed from most U.S. wireless carriers to relief efforts until cellphone users pay their phone bills.

At the same time, I bet there are very few American who’ve heard the story of the Muslim cabbie who saved Christmas.

This was a story about honesty, integrity, ethics, and human decency, yet those who heard about, knew very little about the honest cabbie or where he came from.

The Battle for the American Soul is Over and Jay Leno Won

The 24/7 deluge of falsely manufactured issues has done more than detract from comprehension of the real and life or death issues at hand. Over a couple of generations, it has rendered us incapable of ever grasping the real ones and what is at stake. The ability to do so dies out, as each subsequent generation is conditioned by the reality (or state induced non-reality) it comes up in.

Important as they look and feel because we have lived our entire lives amid these so-called national debates, they have nothing to do with our freedom. Freedom itself was always, and will always be The Issue. The only issue. Everything else follows. The Big Lie is that it does not.

Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan tops $1 trillion

"I think that in general the American people, while obviously this is very difficult financially for us, will continue to support the troops that are there and the Congress will reflect that," Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin said this week.

But with Americans tiring of war and getting more concerned about U.S. indebtedness, political pressures are expected to grow for winding down U.S. military operations and their costs in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin: the best possible way to support our troops is to bring them home, right the flip now.

One has to look with disgust at how completely "knee-jerk stupid" Senator Levin believes thinking Americans are.

And thinking Americans, Senator Levin, who love their country and whose taxes pay for these immoral and illegal wars without end have had their eyes opened, forcibly, if you will, by a torrent of credible information you can no longer control.

We know why this government's military went into Iraq; control of the oil for private profit.

We know why this country's military went into Afghanistan; installation of the pipelines to control Eurasian oil, and control of the illicit drug trade for private profit.

And Mr. Senator, I would almost be willing to be that there will be, come the elections this year, a furious anti-incumbency backlash for what you and your cohorts in the house and senate have allowed to happen to this country under your watch.

Thinking Americans, Senator, have no illusions about who you and your colleagues work for, and that is absolutely not for We the People; it is for the large corporations who fund you all to keep themselves protected by keeping you in power.

Living in the Light at the Center of the Wheel

I saw this quote at the S&MSM this morning, “Policymakers are grappling with how a destitute, corrupt and now devastated country might be transformed”. I thought, “Hmmm that sounds like America”. They were talking about Haiti of course but it was an eerie moment. The American slide seems inexorable and now Scanners is coming to an airport theater near you sometime soon. Of course, scanners aren’t necessary, neither is the TSA or The Federal Reserve. It appears that things just have to play themselves out, no matter what, and that may be all to the good because… as things become more and more preposterous and absurd; as the justifications for greed, control and bad behavior become more and more impossible to swallow, the integrity of the structure can no longer hold.

Thousands of Americans died from H1N1 even after receiving vaccine shots

The CDC is intentionally not tracking how many of the dead were previously vaccinated. They want you (and mainstream media journalists) to mistakenly believe that ZERO deaths occurred in those who were vaccinated. But this is blatantly false. Being vaccinated against H1N1 swine flu offers absolutely no reduction in mortality from swine flu infections.

And that means roughly 20% of the 11,160 Americans who died from the swine flu were probably already vaccinated against swine flu. That comes to around 2,200 deaths in people who were vaccinated!

Ortega warns of US deployment in Haiti

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega says that the United States has taken advantage of the massive quake in Haiti and deployed troops in the country.

"What is happening in Haiti seriously concerns me as US troops have already taken control of the airport," Ortega said on Saturday.

The Pentagon says it has deployed more than 10,000 soldiers in Haiti to help victims of Tuesday's earthquake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That's a lot of US military personnel in Haiti.

As reported on 17 October, 2008 in:


"The state-owned Cuban oil company says the country may have more than 20bn barrels of oil in its offshore fields - more than double the previous estimate."

"Such reserves would place Cuba among the top 20 oil producing nations."

I hate to be cynical, but have to wonder if potential oil reserves close to Haiti may in fact be the "real reason" the US military appears to be scrambling to take control of the island.

But Mr Sawalha is not indulging in a fantasy: preliminary construction work on the town started last week, and it has a very detailed plan.

But there is a hitch: Israel has yet to grant permission to build an access road, without which this town, intended to have a population of 40,000, will simply not be viable.

U.S. envoy George Mitchel will arrive in the region this week without a new agenda for renewing negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, the pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported on Saturday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Envoy Mitchell: there can be no progress toward a just and lasting peace, because of Israel's intransigence, which is highly unlikely to change.

The "official misconception", spoken publicly like a mantra, by succeeding generations of people in the US White House, State Department, and Pentagon officials, is that Israel really wants peace.

Unfortunately every official in the US who has made - and is making -that claim understands without question that the converse is actually the truth.

Israel does not want peace; it wants territory, by any means necessary.

Sadly, the US absolutely will not do that which is necessary to get Israel's attention, and that is yanking the 3 billion dollars' worth of aid it receives from the US every year until the meaningful concessions are finally made.

Israel threatens to expel Turkish ambassador

Tel Aviv, which is at odds with Ankara, has threatened to expel the Turkish ambassador, should Turkish dramas depicting Israeli brutality continue.

In a series of confrontations between the once-close allies, Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said that if a Turkish drama — the second of its kind — continues to depict Israeli security forces as brutal, the country's ambassador could be expelled.

This is while, Turkey is set to make a feature length movie depicting the "Israeli crimes against humanity."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Israeli government; if you don't want to be depicted as brutalizing Palestinians, stop brutalizing Palestinians for all the world to see!

There! Problem solved!

Spanish Politician Threatens to Sue FBI Over Bin Laden Makeover

As it turns out, the State Department is in hot water over its effort to keep the Bin Laden myth going into a new decade. “A Spanish politician said on Saturday that he was ’stupefied’ by the FBI’s decision to use his photograph to compose its latest image of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and is considering taking legal action,” the CIA’s favorite newspaper, The Washington Post, reports today.

Cass Sunstein On The Right To Bear Arms

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cass Sunstein, the same info-czar that wants to tax dissent and infiltrate/disrupt the truth movement, argues that the US Supreme Court was wrong to interpret the Second Amendment as an individual right.

In other words, Cass Sunstein is basically attacking the entire Bill of Rights one at a time.

US military suicides hit record high in 2009

Despite a wide range of prevention efforts, suicides in the US military have risen to a new record high in 2009.

The Department of Defense has reported that 160 active-duty army soldiers committed suicide in 2009, up from 140 in 2008.

The report says the military service members have come under severe strain from years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Repeated deployments and combat stress have been fueling the depression and marital problems resulting in suicidal impulses, it goes on to explain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The report deliberately avoids the true motivation for many of these suicides.

Yes, combat stress, coupled with multiple deployments, depression, and marriage difficulties can bring this about.

However, in the background, lurks the reality that many of these men and women, once deployed, understand with absolute clarity.

That is, unfortunately, that with these continuous invasions and occupations of other countries for private profit (oil fields, oil pipelines to control oil fields, and the profit from illegal drugs) the US is absolutely on the wrong side of history.

Israel and Egypt continue to Squeeze the Lifeblood out of the People of Gaza

According to the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Israeli air force bombing attacks killed seven Palestinians in Gaza, including three civilians. The attacks came in response to an increase in the number of mortar shells and rockets fired by Palestinian factions from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel that caused no injuries or property damage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whcih tells us either that the "Palestinian factions" have lousy aim, or they are really Israeli agents provocateurs.

FDA says it's unable to regulate BPA

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials say they are powerless to regulate BPA, although they have declared the chemical to be a safety concern for fetuses, babies and young children.

A quirk in the rules allows BPA makers to skirt federal regulation.

"We may have to go after legislation to change it," Joshua Sharfstein, the FDA's principal deputy director, told the Journal Sentinel. The newspaper has been investigating the government's lack of regulation regarding BPA for three years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the laws have been written to protect large political donors in the plastics industry, those laws need to be changed, and right the flip now!!

Tea Party: A Tool For Freedom or Racism?

I guess it’s up to the people, do we want Tea Parties to unite us all, regardless of your skin-color against government tyranny or have it infiltrated by feds and hate groups using the movement as a spring-board for recruiting?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hate Groups" are for the most part "Fed" creations to manufacture a boogie man the people will demand the Fed save them from. See COINTELPRO and all the fake "radicals" who are actually FBI informants.

So, I vote "uniting the people against government tyranny."

Which the "hate groups" seem to hate, thereby proving my point about who they really work for.

US Crosses the Bernholz Line Hyperinflation Early Warning Signal

Economic historian Peter Bernholz has identified that inflation starts to take on hyperinflationary characteristics some time after the deficits of a country as a share of government expenditure rise above a third and stay there for several years.

According to Bernholz, the great hyperinflations of France, Germany, Poland, Brazil, and Bolivia all occurred after deficits reached that magic percentage or higher (In Bolivia, it reached 91%). The United States crossed over the Bernholz line last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And STILL the government spends, spends, spends, on wars and Israel.

Scientists turn stem cells into pork

Call it pork in a Petri dish — a technique to turn pig stem cells into strips of meat that scientists say could one day offer a green alternative to raising livestock, help alleviate world hunger, and save some pigs their bacon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It all sounds good (so did Global Warming) but the first question I have is that if we cannot buy food for the world's people, how can we afford all the lab equipment and raw chemicals needed to create food in a Petri dish?

This experiment is just that; an interesting experiment, but it is far from a practical solution to world hunger. And like the "green" claims made for Ethanol, I suspect that the environmental impact for creating all the chemical precursors for this growing of pork in Petri dishes, coupled with waste disposal, will make us all long for the days when a pen full of pig slop was all we had to worry about.

Civilian Casualties Soar; Key Afghan Metric Headed In Wrong Direction

The rising number of innocent Afghan casualties constitutes a major failure for the American forces if judged by the standards set out by General Stanley McChrystal in the summer of 2009, when he testified before Congress.

American success in Afghanistan should be measured by "the number of Afghans shielded from violence," not the number of enemy fighters killed, he said at the time.

That's a reasonable measure, since no matter who's actually causing the violence, the people hold the coalition forces and central government responsible -- as veteran combat reporter David Wood wrote on Friday for Politics Daily.

When Woolsey Met Harman

Jane Harman has never seen a war she didn't like or a crime by anyone important that she couldn't excuse. When caught on a warrantless wiretap by the Bush-Cheney gang conspiring with representatives of the Israeli government against her own, Harman chose to allow herself to be blackmailed. She pressured the New York Times to keep the story of warrantless spying programs secret until Bush could get into a second term as president. Harman's loyalty is not to the wishes of her constituents, not to the political fate of her party (the Democrats) and not to her country. In other words she's a model congress member.

BBC forecast for Met Office: changeable

BUFFETED by complaints about its inaccurate weather forecasts, the Met Office now faces being dumped by the BBC after almost 90 years.

The Met Office contract with the BBC expires in April and the broadcaster has begun talks with Metra, the national forecaster for New Zealand, as a possible alternative.

The BBC put the contract out to tender to ensure “best value for money”, but its timing coincides with a storm over the Met Office’s accuracy.

The shuttles are for sale once they quit flying, supposedly this fall.
