Israel Wounds 3 Palestinians,Rounds Up Dozens In Gaza

Israeli warplanes pounded the tunnels area in Rafah, in southern Gaza Strip, and a position for the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, at dawn Thursday wounding three citizens, local sources reported.

They told the PIC reporter that Israeli F-16s fired two missiles at the tunnels area on the Palestinian-Egyptian borders and injured three civilians.

The sources noted that few minutes later the warplanes blasted a position for the Qassam Brigades west of Khan Younis, also in southern Gaza

Beauty-conscious women put 515 chemicals on their face and body every day

The days of natural beauty are over. Women slap some 525 chemicals on their face and body every day, research shows.

Beauty-conscious women and girls use up to 13 lotions and potions a day, many of which will contain more than 20 chemicals. Others contain several hundred.

Some of the chemicals found in popular perfumes and deodorants have been linked to cancer, while others may irritate the skin or even cause it to age prematurely.

Were Americans behind the Mumbai terrorist attacks? Chicago men questioned by FBI over assault that killed 166

Two Chicago men are being investigated by the FBI over their possible involvement in the terrorist attacks that killed 166 people in Mumbai in November last year.

The FBI claims it has evidence that David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana have links to Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistani terror group that India claims were behind the attacks.

Officials in India say Headley also may have been involved in planning the Mumbai attacks during a visit to India before the attacks.

Finally, A Congressman With a Solution: Stop Complaining So Much

Sure, the economy sucks. Unemployment is at least 10.2% and, yes, if you include part-time workers who would rather have full-time jobs it may be over 17%. The government is showering our cash on Wall Street and burning through piles of our children and grandchildren’s money “saving” phantom jobs in Congressional Districts that don’t exist.

Well, not to worry, three-term Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) has found a solution: Stop Complaining So Much.

Obama Warns Iran of Punishment Over Nukes

Webmaster's Commentary: 


I am alarmed by the renewed push to propagandize that Iran has secret nuclear facilities and are already building nuclear weapons. The warhawks in Israel are desperate to get the US into war with Iran. I am concerned that Israel may be desperate enough to set off one of their own nuclear devices inside the United States during this upcoming holiday season and blame Iran for it.

Of course, with the exception of Israel, which cannot officially admit they have nuclear weapons without losing the billions of dollars coming from the US taxpayers, the normal process for a nation with nuclear weapons is to announce that they have them and show them off, because after all, what is the point of having a nuclear deterrent if you keep it a secret? If Iran really had a bomb, they would announce it to the world and say, "attack us now and lose a major city." That would make Iran safe, because the US and Israel do not attack and invade nations that actually have nuclear weapons, only those nations who do not, like Irag, Somalia, Afghanistan, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

CIA Secret 'Torture' Prison Found at Fancy Horseback Riding Academy

The CIA built one of its secret European prisons inside an exclusive riding academy outside Vilnius, Lithuania, a current Lithuanian government official and a former U.S. intelligence official told ABC News this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the bottom line is that we the people do not know what other secret torture facilities the CIA has been using to extract confessions, and to judge by the scars on the bodies of people like Binyam Mohammed, waterboarding was not the worst thing being done.

Remember that in Nazi Germany, Germans living just a few miles from the slave-labor camps had no idea what their government was doing.

Cap and Trade: A License Required for your Home

Beginning 1 year after enactment of the Cap and Trade Act, you won't be able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards of this Act. H.R. 2454, the "Cap & Trade" bill passed by the House of Representatives, if also passed by the Senate, will be the largest tax increase any of us has ever experienced.

The Congressional Budget Office (supposedly non-partisan) estimates that in just a few years the average cost to every family of four will be $6,800 per year.

The ultra-fundamentalist Od Yosef Hai yeshiva in the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar is infamous for its involvement in settler violence against Palestinians. Memorably, one of the students fired a homemade “Kassam” rocket at the neighboring village of Burin in June 2008. This morning, Maariv reports that the Yeshiva’s dean has just published on the proscribed dos and don’ts (mainly the former) regarding the killing of gentiles. Here are some choice excerpts.

Palestinian Authority (PA) police have arrested Walid Suleiman, a Hebron-based journalist on suspicion of “inciting against the PA” and “undermining vital Palestinian interests.”

His family said the Preventive Security Force (PSF) summoned Suleiman for what was to be a “brief interrogation” on his activities, including public lectures on Islam and current affairs.

However, upon his arrival at the PSF headquarters in downtown Hebron, Suleiman was arrested until “a further notice.”

Nov 19 09:10


Indeed, like Nazi Germany, which waged war on Europe and killed or caused the death of millions in the name of self-defense, Israel is doing the same thing by threatening and attacking its neighbors, especially the helpless Palestinians who have been trying for decades to rid themselves of the Nazi-like Israeli occupation of their country.

Internet Under Siege

Many countries already monitor and censor the internet on a regular basis, forbidding access to numerous sites that they consider to be subversive. During recent unrest, the governments of both Iran and China effectively shut down the internet by taking control of or blocking servers. Combined with switching off of cell phone transmitters, the steps proved effective in isolating dissidents. Could it happen here? Undoubtedly. Once the laws are in place a terrorist incident or something that could be plausibly described in those terms would be all that is needed to have government officials issue the order to bring the internet to a halt.

Don't throw away that telephone modem card just yet.

Uranium Swap Must Take Place inside Iran not Abroad: Mottaki

In the clearest statement to date of Tehran’s attitude to the U.S.-backed proposal for a nuclear fuel swap as a step towards building trust with Washington, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki has said his government will take a positive view of the plan provided the exchange of enriched uranium takes place “inside Iran.”

Mottaki told The Hindu in an exclusive interview on Monday that Iran is not keen to send its own nuclear fuel out of the country before the fuel it is to receive for the Tehran Research Reactor (TRR) arrives on its territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1. The last time Iran sent nuclear materials to France for processing they never got it back.

2. Everyone is screaming about a deal with Iran but there is already a deal in place called the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty; a deal Iran is abiding by and the United States is not. Why would Iran agree to a deal when history has shown the UNited States cannot be trusted to keep its word?

3. If Iran removes all of their nuclear materials from their nuclear facilities, those facilities become instant targets for Israeli bombs and missiles.

Feds: False congressional districts removed from stimulus site

The government Web site Recovery.gov is fixing errors that appeared to show hundreds of millions of stimulus dollars were spent in nonexistent congressional districts, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board said Wednesday.

The errors, first reported by ABC News, were seen on Recovery.gov summary pages breaking down how many stimulus dollars were received in each state's congressional districts.

Arizona's page, for example, showed the state's 52nd, 15th and 86th congressional districts received hundreds of thousands of dollars in stimulus money, according to CNN affiliate KNXV. However, no such districts exist in Arizona, which has only eight congressional districts.

Obamacare A Bonanza For Drug Companies, A Pain For the Public

President Obama is very good at talking “the language of the deal.” He made a deal with the the drug cartel this summer, ostensibly to keep drug prices down to reduce the overall cost of health care. The drug companies promised they would cut the prices they planned to charge by about $8 billion a year for the next ten years. Now an analysis for AARP shows the drug profiteers have actually raised prices by more than $10 billion in the last year, an increase of more than 9 percent and the biggest price hike in 17 years.

The Illusion of Democracy in the Modern World

Most of the ‘terrorist’ bomb attacks of the past sixty years have been false-flag attacks that were actually committed by the Israeli Mossad, the CIA, and British intelligence. For six decades the allied Western intelligence agencies have been carrying out an ongoing campaign to frame Muslims for bombings which were actually perpetrated by the Western intelligence agencies themselves. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11/2001 were a joint CIA/Pentagon/Mossad false-flag operation that was intended to provide an excuse for the subsequent US-led Coalition invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Croatian Priest Says Vaccine for Destruction of Humanity Worldwide

Controversy in Croatia after famous Croatian priest Miroslav Bustruk appealed to Croatians not to get vaccinated against the Swine flu vaccine.

In a church ceremony dedicated to St Martin, father’s Bustruk statement caused an avalanche of reactions in Croatia.

What is it that he said?

“I appeal to you, to not get vaccinated for the so called Swine Flu under any circumstance. There is a plan for massive destruction of humanity worldwide. For this purpose we will see new diseases springing up everywhere” reports Croatian daily “Jutarnji List”, quoting father Bustruk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The issue here is not that this Priest is suspicious of the government, but that so many people in general are!

Clearly, the world's political systems have lost the trust of their people. In other words, the US is not the only failing state.

Bernanke 2005-2007 a video compilation - "I Have Confidence in Bank Regulators and There’s No Bubble in Housing"

Nov 19 08:20


Mr. Ruml read this paper before the American Bar Association during the last year of the war [World War II]. It attracted then less attention than it deserved and is even more timely now, with the tax structure undergoing change for peacetime. His thesis is that given (1) control of a central banking system and (2) an inconvertible currency, a sovereign national government is finally free of money worries and need no longer levy taxes for the purpose of providing itself with revenue. All taxation, therefore, should be regarded from the point of view of social and economic consequences. The paragraph that embodies this idea will be found italicized in the text. Mr. Ruml does not say precisely how in that case the government would pay its own bills.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big lie of Capitalism is that everyone can be rich. This is simply not so. Capitalism only works if there is a wealth differential imposed on society. Only a small number of people can be allowed to be rich; everyone else must be kept poor. If everyone were rich, who would take out the trash, repair the sewers, fix the roads and bridges, or any of the thousand other tasteless jobs our society requires?

This is what taxes do; keep the masses poor to force them to keep working. The government has always simply printed up the money it needs to spend, called it "debt" and cited it as the excuse to loot the population. Then the government has to find cash "sinks" into which to pour the money to make it look like it is really going someplace useful, which is why the military gets $600 hammers and $1200 toilet seats, etc.

Obama renews threats against Iran

US President Barack Obama says the door is still open for Iran to accept the IAEA-backed proposal on a nuclear fuel deal but warned of “consequences” if Tehran does not change its mind.

The mid-October nuclear draft discussed in Vienna envisages Iran shipping out its low-enriched uranium (LEU) to be further enriched and returned to the country for the Tehran medical research reactor. The idea was first floated by the Obama administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1. The last time Iran sent nuclear materials to France for processing they never got it back.

2. Everyone is screaming about a deal with Iran but there is already a deal in place called the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty; a deal Iran is abiding by and the United States is not. Why would Iran agree to a deal when history has shown the UNited States cannot be trusted to keep its word?

3. If Iran removes all of their nuclear materials from their nuclear facilities, those facilities become instant targets for Israeli bombs and missiles.

Dispatches: Inside Britain's Israel Lobby

Embedding disabled by request

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And note that comments are also disabled.

Of course, we know what is really at issue. Israel is terrified that yet another nation is starting to openly discuss the undue influence of the Israel lobby on their government. And they fear the start of a trend. It is one thing for the world to say, "Those poor Americans; sold out to Israel by their own government", but if Great Britain is suddenly seen to have the same subversive activity happening to them, then other countries will start asking, "Is it happening to us as well? Is our government subverted by a hidden Israeli lobby?" That is a question which (like most questions regarding the orthodox account of WW2) Israel cannot allow to be asked, let alone answered.

The irony here is that by exerting their influence to get this video shut down, Israel has once again shown that they do indeed wield great control over other people's countries.

Former evangelist: Religious right is ‘trawling for assassins’

Not only have the Wall Street Journal and the hosts of Fox News been issuing their usual dark mutterings, but a new slogan has began appearing on bumper stickers, tshirts, and even teddy bears: "Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8."

That psalm reads, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assassinating Obama would not accomplish anything but making Biden the President. Biden would not alter Obama's policies any more than Obama altered Bush's policies because the policies are being dictated to the government by Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, war profiteers, and of course, Israel.

The entire system has to crash before we can effect a change.

West Is East, When Israel Decides

In 2004, when the Israeli government was re-surveying Jerusalem's municipal boundary, it ruled that the hotel was not actually in the West Bank but inside the city. Deif stresses that the hotel had always paid property taxes to the West Bank town of Bethlehem, never to Jerusalem.

But, bending the rationale of their own bureaucracy, the Israeli municipal authorities ruled that since Walid Ayyad had a West Bank identity card, he was not recognised as a resident of Jerusalem. Thus, classified an "absentee owner", his property "inside Jerusalem" was therefore deemed liable for expropriation.

Walid Ayyad now lives in London. The family received no compensation for the takeover.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, this violates the conditions for Israel's membership at the United Nations.

U.S. Sows Seeds of Wider War in East Africa

Somali refugees and ethnic Somali citizens of Kenya are being recruited and trained by the thousands for a U.S.-backed offensive in Somalia, to begin next month. The Associated Press, citing numerous sources among refugees, young men who have deserted from the new militia and their families, local Kenyan officials and foreign diplomats, reports that the offensive against Islamist forces in Somalia is planned for late December, the end of the Somali rainy season. That’s the same seasonal window the Americans took advantage of three years ago, when the U.S. instigated an Ethiopian invasion of Somalia that plunged the country into what the United Nations described as the “worst humanitarian crisis in Africa.” That crisis continues, complicated by a severe drought and a U.S.

Well-Written, Well-Timed: The Dollar Meltdown

America’s national government has moved way beyond a political spoils system. A spoils system leaves the host alive so that a politician’s occasional ne’er-do-well brother-in-law can be put on the payroll. America has become a piñata: everybody gets a crack at it. Presidents and other elected officials pass the big stick around as a reward to those who help keep them in charge of the piñata party. The American media plays the role of the party’s mariachi bank, keeping festive spirits high. And the people in their demographic and interest groups all line up to take a whack at the goodies.

Palestinians refuse to even begin discussing a peace process until Israel stops the expansion of settlements into Palestinian territory; stop stealing more and more land from their neighbors...

The US And Israel Want A War With Iran And Another Conflict With Gaza

I myself felt so much compassion towards the Jewish struggle during WW2 but the actions of today's Israeli Government keeps chipping away at that compassion. I feel that the Netanyahu led government has taken Israel to the brink of beyond reason. Israel has truly stepped over the line to a point that its next action could result not only in achieving it goal of attacking Iranian nuclear facilities but with the added ability of turning the region into a possible WW3. It is clear that Israel with the support of the US is clearly concerned at the existence of Syria, Lebanon and Palestine and therefore any possible conflict does not rest only on Iran.

"President Obama should not interfere with the rights of the Jewish people to live in Jerusalem," said Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon. "This ... is a racist demand, saying that Jews cannot live in Jerusalem, only Arabs."

“We are faced with enemies who do not conceal their intentions, and who arm themselves accordingly,” the Israeli prime minister said. “They first attack us physically, and then attack our right to self-defense.”

TheNation has learnt on good authority that militants are using Israeli-made light arms including “Uzi gun” and “Rapid-fire pistol” against security forces in North Waziristan as the operation Rah-I-Rast reached its final stage.

In addition to Israel-made sophisticated arms, militants are making use of the latest version of US-made M-16 carbine with laser designator and binoculars, Bulgarian and Czechoslovakia made Kalakov and M-4 carbine with a grenade launcher and laser designator, which is a unique weapon with the US marines.

History Channel loses its balance

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the TV schedule for today on the History Channel.

With only a few exceptions, it is a flood of WW2, Aushwitz, Hitler, Nazis, and Holocaust.

If aliens are intercepting History Channel, they must think our entire history as a species fits into the 20 years in the middle of the last century and nothing of any importance happened either before or since.

Société Générale tells clients how to prepare for 'global collapse'

In a report entitled "Worst-case debt scenario", the bank's asset team said state rescue packages over the last year have merely transferred private liabilities onto sagging sovereign shoulders, creating a fresh set of problems.

Overall debt is still far too high in almost all rich economies as a share of GDP (350pc in the US), whether public or private. It must be reduced by the hard slog of "deleveraging", for years.

"As yet, nobody can say with any certainty whether we have in fact escaped the prospect of a global economic collapse," said the 68-page report, headed by asset chief Daniel Fermon. It is an exploration of the dangers, not a forecast.

U.K. Jews lambaste TV 'exposé' of Britain's pro-Israel lobby

A television program purporting to expose the unknown power and influence Britain's pro-Israel lobby has triggered a wave of condemnation by British Jews, some of whom accused the report of stoking anti-Semitism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"What the heck do you think you are doing, putz? The Americans never talk about their Israeli lobby? What makes you think you're so @#%ing special?"

6 Congress Members Demand Complete Audit of Fed in Light of AIG Counterparty Fiasco

On March 25, 2009, I requested, joined by 26 fellow members of Congress, that Mr. Barofsky investigate the events surrounding AIG’s payments to Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Societe Generale and other firms to settle certain open derivative transactions.

As a result of the findings in the report, there should be a comprehensive Congressional review of the Federal Reserve System and an exploration of possible changes in its governance model. More immediately, a complete and public audit of the system should be made part of the regulatory reform bills currently moving through your committees.

Navy: ‘Ineffective’ leadership in sub collision

The crew aboard a U.S. submarine made dozens of errors before the vessel collided with an American warship in the Persian Gulf, an accident that exposed lax leaders who tolerated sleeping, slouching and a radio room rigged with music speakers, a Navy review found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sub collisions happen all the time. A few years back right here near Oahu the USS Greeneville rammed and sank the Ehime Maru, a Japanese fishing trawler with a crew of students aboard.

A Brief History Of US/Russian submarine collisions

Here's a short list of known collisions.

1961 USS Swordfish (SSN-579) is on a spy mission in Soviet waters when a
Soviet sub surfaces underneath it.

196? A US sub, possibly USS Skipjack, on a spy mission in Soviet waters,
collides with a destroyer. Finally made public in a New York Times article
in 1975.

July 1965. USS Medregal rams a Greek freighter.

March 1966. USS Barbel rams a freighter near North Vietnam.

December 1967. USS George C. Marshall (SSBN-654) is grazed by a Russian sub.

October 9, 1968. This appears to be the historical precedent for the Kursk
sinking. A Russian sub operating normally collided with an unknown sub in
the Barents sea, leaving a sizable hole in the Russian sub. Russian
intelligence notes the arrival of a damaged sub in a Norwegian port a few
days later.

November 1969. USS Gato's sail hits the hull of a soviet sub.

March 14, 1970. USS Sturgeon bashes her sonar dome against a Russian sub's

June 1970. USS Tautog is rammed by Black Lila. It is erroneously assumed at
the time that Black Lila sank.

March 1971. An unnamed US sub operating 12 miles off of the Soviet coast
collides with a Russian sub. Reported in the New York Times in 1975.

Mid-1971. USS Dace hits a Russian sub in the Mediterranean.

Late 1971 or early 1972. USS Puffer is trailing a Soviet sub when the Soviet
sub unexpectedly dives, bumping into Puffer.

March 1974. USS Pintado rams a Soviet missile boat while on a spy mission in
Soviet waters near Petropavlovsk. Reported in the San Diego Evening Tribune
in 1975.

November 3rd, 1974. USS James Madison hits an unknown Russian Victor class
attack sub in the North Sea. Reported by columnist Jack Anderson.

1981. HMS Sceptre is trailing a Russian sub and rear-ends it.

October 1986. USS Augusta, while testing a new computer sonar system to make
detecting enemy subs easier, rams a Soviet sub. The Augusta claims they
rammed a Delta class. Others report it was a Yankee missile boat that
subsequently sank.

December 24, 1986. HMS Splendid and a Soviet sub were trying to dodge out of
each other's way when they collided. HMS Splendid's towed sonar array became
tangled in the other sub and was lost.

February 11, 1992. USS Baton Rouge hits a Soviet sub near Murmansk. For the
first time, and in response to Yeltsin's demands, the US Navy publicly
acknowledges the collision.

March 20, 1993. USS Grayling with a Russian sub in the Barent's Sea.

And of course, the Russian submarine Kursk, officially reported as destroyed by a torpedo malfunction, is thought by many to have been rammed by a US sub spying on their testing of a new torpedo system.

Palin continues standard establishment line on Israeli policy

Sarah Palin, Vice-presidential candidate on the GOP ticket in 2008, was interviewed by Barbara Walters of ABC News and cemented her previously stated viewpoint as a staunch supporter of Israel. With the release of her new book 'GOING ROGUE: An American Life' and chatter of a possible Palin 2012 presidential run, her view on foreign policy in particular is getting the attention of pundits and politial junkies. Palin's latest statement on Israel is nothing new, however, since her position on the matter has been clear for some time to anyone paying attention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nobody is allowed to run for high office in this country without first swearing fealty to Israel.

Erekat Denies PA Plans to Declare State Unilaterally

The Palestinians will not unilaterally declare an independent state, but rather seek a UN Security Council resolution endorsing a two-state solution along the pre-1967 lines, Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

Israeli officials said Erekat was backtracking on earlier statements calling for a unilateral declaration of independence, even as he said that Israel was "twisting his words."

The Palestinians want the Security Council to set the borders of their future state and those of Israel along the pre-1967 lines, Erekat said. "What we are seeking is to preserve the two-state solution," he said. "One state is not an option."

The Eviction Of Palestinian Families Continue

The United Nations, the United States and the European Union have all called on Israel to stop the illegal eviction of Palestinians and the demolition of their homes.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, urged Israel to end its "provocative actions" in East Jerusalem, while calling for it to freeze all settlement activity in the occupied West Bank.

Despite that, the sight of Palestinians in East Jerusalem being forced out of their homes has become an all too familiar scene.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the United Nations is unable to control Israel, then its credibility as the foundation of a future global government is destroyed completely.

Israel got away with convincing the world to let it do what other nations are not allowed to do, i.e. do to Palestine what Germany was punished for doing to Poland. But that propaganda cover of the Holocaust will not suffice to convince the world that a future world government should have one set of rules for Israel, and another for everyone else.

Nobody will buy that.

CIA to Dish out $3 Million to buy silence in Another Narco Scandal

“The CIA’s efforts to undermine Horn’s work in Burma in getting that nation’s government to stem the flow of heroin to the United States should come as no surprise to those who are familiar with the “Agency’s” history. It seems the CIA, over the decades, has often found itself in the corner of narco-traffickers and thugs who support the Agency’s covert objectives in areas deemed critical to U.S. special interests – whether that be in Southeast Asia, Central Asia or Latin America.”

The ADL's Three "Extremist Conspiracy Theories" In Context And With Evidence

The Anti-Defamation League has published a fresh report directly targeting Alex Jones as an "extremist" and "The King of conspiracy", lumping in the information contained on this website with the actions of racists and white supremacists.

There is, as usual, one major problem with the ADL's report - it is devoid of any empirical fact and based entirely on the group's desire to create the impression that huge swathes of politically disgruntled Americans are violent conspiratorial-minded bigots that they must expose and counter.

Goldman Says "Sorry" And The World Moves On

In recent months, Goldman Sachs made a good run at becoming The Most Hated Company In The World.


By nearly going bust last fall, getting a cash bailout from the taxpayer, immediately denying that it ever needed any help, and then minting so much money over the next twelve months that it will pay 2009 bonuses in excess of $20 billion.

A couple of weeks ago, Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein then compounded the problem by going on a PR offensive in which he said Goldman was doing "God's work."

Goldman does provide a lot of valuable services, but it's hard to imagine in what universe they would deserve that description.

Local Currencies - The missing link in the quest for sustainability

Local Currencies are the ultimate in loyalty programs. Unlike profits derived from trading with national currencies, the wealth generated by trading with exchange systems created by and for local communities stays within the district.
Since community currencies work alongside and supplement national currency, once their advantages are understood they are welcomed by the community, particularly in times of economic stress. Historically, community currencies have been economic and social lifesavers.
