THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The moment we no longer have a free press, anything can happen. What makes it possible for a totalitarian or any other dictatorship to rule is that people are not informed; how can you have an opinion if you are not informed? If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie-- a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days-- but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows. And a people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please." -- Hannah Arendt, 1974

China-bashing is bipartisan in US races

In these angry political times, Democrats and Republicans agree on next to nothing. China is one exception. Democrats and Republicans alike are accusing each other of cozying up to Beijing and backing policies that send U.S. jobs and IOUs to the world's second-largest economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China is not the problem for America's financial woes.

Governmental policies which make offshoring of jobs financially attractive, is a big part of the problem.

Congress needs to incentivize corporations to keep good-paying jobs here.

To fund the illegal and immoral wars without end it is conducting, the Federal government has borrowed like a drunken sailor. It is high time to defund these wars, and focus on improving infrastructure here at home.

The Fed needs to be disbanded, and the US government needs to create and control the money, and money supply here in the US.

All of these steps, taken together, could make a major difference in the lives of this country's citizens: bashing China for the US government's self-inflicted wounds of bad policy decisions, domestically and internationally, will do nothing to remedy the situation at all.

Cargo plane bomb plot: Yemen doubts its link to the plot

The government of Yemen has expressed astonishment at the cargo plane bomb plots, claiming there were no UPS cargo planes that had taken off from Yemen on Friday or any indirect or direct flights to British or American airports.

In a statement distributed to journalists and posted on the official website, the statement warned against "rush decisions in a case as sensitive as this one and before investigations reveal the truth".

Iran agrees to resume nuclear talks in November

Speaking at a summit of EU leaders in Brussels, Lady Ashton said she had received a letter from Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, agreeing to meet "in a place and on a date convenient to both sides" after 10 November.

Lady Ashton - who represents world powers in the nuclear dialogue with Iran - had earlier invited Mr Jalili to hold talks in Vienna from 15-17 November. She called his reply "a very significant move".

Meanwhile, US State Department spokesman PJ Crowley confirmed a New York Times report that Washington and its European allies were close to agreeing a tougher proposal on a nuclear fuel swap offer for Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch whatever the US offers Iran in these talks, if they in fact come to fruition, to be a worse deal than originally offered.

NATO Chief Slams Gorbachev’s ‘Negative’ View of Afghan War

In an interview with BBC today, NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen slammed former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev for calling the decade long NATO occupation of Afghanistan “unwinnable.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen: there will be a point, and hopefully in the not too distant future, when US and NATO forces will have to leave Afghanistan, and negotiate with whatever government is left standing in Kabul at that time for the pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil, if that government in Kabul is willing to listen.

And please note: Rasmussen has absolutely zero experience in the military. According to his bio, listed here:

http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/who_is_who_56703.htm

His education has been in economics, and his has career has been in politics.

The cost in blood and money in this illegal and immoral warwas essentially to support a publicly funded war for private profits. Those private profits were to have come from the pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil, and from the drug trade in opium.

The drug trade has been so successful that Russian leaders have denounced the amount of it which is reaching Russia, and addicting their kids to the low-cost, very potent drug.

http://www.metronews.ca/toronto/world/article/670892--russia-complains-us-not-acting-on-afghan-drug-labs

"Russia claims that drug production in Afghanistan has increased exponentially since the U.S.-led invasion that overthrew the Taliban government in 2001. It says smugglers freely transport Afghan heroin and opium north into Central Asia and Russia, and onward to Western Europe. Afghanistan is the world's largest supplier of opium."

On a military level, almost one decade on, the war is unwinnable.Sane military leaders in both the US and NATO military understand this, but will not speak out because it will wreck their careers.

Every individual killed or wounded makes those left standing ever more eager to join the insurgency, and drive the occupation forces out.

The only people who are "winning" are the defense contractors, providing hired mercenaries, equipment, and logistical services, and the drug dealers.

That's a pretty damned dismal assessment of the situation, but an honest one.

That glum assessment carries over into the nation at large, which is similarly divided over whether Mr Obama should be a one-term president.

Leading environmental campaigners flip-flop to support nuclear power and GM foods

Editor's Note: This propaganda alert claims the environmental movement has been wrong for decades in opposing GMO foods and nuclear power. It's a clear indication that the real environmental movement has been hijacked by the crowd that promotes CO2 as more dangerous than depleted uranium, or genetically-mutated pesticide-ready crops. It's convenient for the establishment to force the world's population to choose between the lesser of their two evils, both of which thoroughly enrich them and continue to poison the planet.

Airport body scanners 'could give you cancer', warns expert

Full body scanners at airports could increase your risk of skin cancer, experts warn.

The X-ray machines have been brought in at Manchester, Gatwick and Heathrow.

But scientists say radiation from the scanners has been underestimated and could be particularly risky for children.

They say that the low level beam does deliver a small dose of radiation to the body but because the beam concentrates on the skin - one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body - that dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated.

Why Is Indiana Putting Armed Security Guards Into 36 Unemployment Offices Across The State?

Armed security guards will now be posted at all 36 full-service unemployment offices in the state of Indiana. So why is this happening now? Well, Indiana Department of Workforce Development spokesman Marc Lotter says that the agency is bringing in the extra security in anticipation of an upcoming deadline when thousands upon thousands of Indiana residents could have their unemployment benefits cut off. But it is not just the state of Indiana that could have a problem. In fact, one recent study found that approximately 2 million Americans will lose their unemployment insurance benefits during this upcoming holiday season unless Congress authorizes another emergency extension of benefits by the end of November. At this point, however, that is looking less and less likely.

Humiliate, strip, threaten: UK military interrogation manuals discovered

The British military has been training interrogators in techniques that include threats, sensory deprivation and enforced nakedness in an apparent breach of the Geneva conventions, the Guardian has discovered.

Training materials drawn up secretly in recent years tell interrogators they should aim to provoke humiliation, insecurity, disorientation, exhaustion, anxiety and fear in the prisoners they are questioning, and suggest ways in which this can be achieved.

One PowerPoint training aid created in September 2005 tells trainee military interrogators that prisoners should be stripped before they are questioned. "Get them naked," it says. "Keep them naked if they do not follow commands." Another manual prepared around the same time advises the use of blindfolds to put prisoners under pressure.

A real way to fix the economy and it exists in North Dakota

Film maker Bill Still has been investigating the history of money and its effect on past governments and has discovered something that we have been ignoring for decades - that governments do not need to borrow their money. Governments have the power to create and control the amount of money in circulation and so, do not need to pay banks for their own money creation.

The cost of borrowing money from private banks is never-ending debt that enriches banks and gives bankers the power over the economy of the nation.

Republicans urge Obama to prevent Palestinian state recognition

As Congressional midterm elections approach, Republican representatives call on US president not to reward 'Palestinian behavior,' warn UN resolution on Palestinian state would hurt peace efforts.

Republican members of the House of Representatives have written a letter to US President Barack Obama in which they urge him to veto any attempt to pass a Security Council resolution recognizing a Palestinian state, which they said would predetermine the results of peace negotiations

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If such a UN Security Council resolution were to come to a vote, the US would veto it immediately.

Turkish document defines Israel as 'central threat'

The Turkish National Security Council approved a few days ago significant changes in a document which contains threats against Turkey claiming that Israel is now a major threat to the country, Turkish media reported Saturday.

This is the first time that Turkey has defined Israel's actions in the Middle East as a threat towards it.

The document also stated that Israel's actions may cause countries in the region to begin an "arms race."

'Netanyahu offers PA state within temporary borders'

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is making efforts to convince the Obama administration to accept a plan by which a Palestinian state would be established within temporary borders for a period of ten years, leaving difficult issues such as refugees and Jerusalem to be decided in future negotiations, London-based Arabic language daily Al-Hayat reported on Saturday.

According to Palestinian sources quoted by Al-Hayat, the temporary borders of the Palestinian State would coincide with the current security fence.

Under the proposed plan Israel would be allowed to maintain control over the Palestinian state's eastern border, on the western border with Israel, on Jerusalem and on water sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an absolute "non-starter" for the Palestinians, and Netanyahu knows it.

What Israel is absolutely unwilling to do is declare its own borders, so any land the Palestinian state might be granted would be only "temporary" for the 10 years of such an agreement.

This is sheer and utter nonsense.

Amid mortgage mess, owners blindsided

After Valarie Stovall fell behind on the mortgage on her home near Hagerstown, her lender agreed in April to slash her monthly payment by $300, and she immediately started paying the reduced amount.

That's why, Stovall said, she thought nothing of the yellow flier she ripped off her screen door as she returned from the grocery store one afternoon last July.

"Then I read it and went 'Oh my God,'" she said. "It was a notice of eviction."

Across the country, struggling homeowners are increasingly tripped up by mortgage lenders that press ahead with foreclosures regardless of any effort they make to provide borrowers with relief on unaffordable mortgages.

More Requests to Release Jonathan Pollard

Lawrence Korb, a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense, has written an op-ed in a prominent U.S.newspaper as a follow-up on his letter to President Obama asking that Jonathan Pollard be released.

Efforts to have Pollard released as he nears the end of his 25th year in prison are gaining steam in the United States and Israel. They have been heightened by at least three recent developments: the letter from Korb, a statement by Pollard's high-level boss at the time of his arrest, Rafi Eitan, that the U.S.agreed to jail him only for ten years; and a plea from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s brother-in-law to take the case directly to Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to any highly placed current or former members of the US and/or Israeli governments: Pollard was a traitor to his country, and created a world of hurt for American assets.

The Israeli government should be damned grateful that he was not executed for his treason, and leave it at that.

Any members of Congress who feel that they must push this issue are very clearly demonstrating that they care infinitely more about accomplishing certain geopolitical outcomes for a foreign government (that of Israel) than they are of taking care of the legitimate needs and concerns of the American people, and the American people are starting to sit up and take notice.

The Perfect No-Prosecution Crime

Did you know that in the aftermath of the Savings and Loan (Thrifts) scandal there were more than a thousand felony convictions of financial elites? The cost of the wrongdoing associated with the rip-off and closure of nearly 800 Thrifts cost taxpayers more than $160 billion. The current sub-prime/mortgage-backed security scandal is 40 times bigger according to Economics professor William Black. That means the size of the crime is $6.4 trillion by my calculation. Can you guess how many indictments there have been on financial elites who created this enormous mess? Zero, none, nada, zip. Yes, not one single prosecution or conviction has been started of achieved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember how a couple days back I pointed out that the government could either take care of the people or save the banks, but it could not do both? Even the official investigation admits that this is an "either or" situation. The government can either save the people or save the banks.

Yemeni Government Arrest Two Females for Sending Suspicious packages to U.S.

According to a senior governmental official who spoke to Yemen Post on anonymity, Yemeni security forces arrested two Yemeni women under suspicion of sending the packages to the United States.
The Yemeni official claims that the two women sent the packages in order to damage the reputation of Yemen and not on links of Al-Qaeda. He denied that Al-Qaeda had links to the packages that were sent.

What Are They Hiding? Obama Administration Defending Black Site Prison at Bagram Airbase

The lingering question is: Why does the US government so adamantly want to hide information about where captives were first taken into military custody, their citizenship, the length of their captivity, and the circumstances under which they were captured?

Making matters worse is a string of continuing reports from people released from Bagram, including some which are very recent, that it is a site where torture is routinely applied to prisoners.

When the ugly sadistic goings on at Abu Ghraib were exposed, it caused massive damage to the US, and, according to government statements at the time, ended up helping recruit more future terrorists. It seems the Obama administration is heading down the same road now at Bagram, with the blessing of a Judge Jones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is something terrifyingly sick about the US institutionalization of torture, during the last two administrations.

This country's government has fallen down a very slippery slope here, and unless, and until there are prosecutions here in the US of the people who signed off on the use of torture, the very fabric of our moral identity as a people will have been destroyed forever.

Unfortunately, the odds of this happening right now are zero to none, because of the terrible complicity of so many people in the letting loose so much evil these wars represent, primarily for a potential financial gain.

My Dad was a US World War II Veteran, and enlisted, disabled (with a bum elbow from an horrendous auto accident,) because he believed he was absolutely on the right side of history, and was willing to do anything moral to support this cause.

Were he alive today, he would have been repulsed and furious to learn that the country he loved so dearly had institutionalized torture.

The Global Monetary System in Crisis

The recognition of currency war, which has been going on for years, reflects the failure of international cooperation and the failure the G-20 to find a solution of the beggar-thy-neighbor policies of almost every nation. The result has been growing geopolitical dislocation, which G-20 has yet to find a solution for. These efforts, until recently, were turned upside down by the failure of the Copenhagen Summit in the summer of 2009, when it was discovered that global warming was a giant scam. This was proof positive that global leadership was nothing less than a group of common criminals.

Pentagon Forges NATO Proxy Armies In Eastern Europe

On October 27 the U.S. 86th Airlift Wing and 435th Air Ground Operations Wing completed two weeks of joint exercises in Bulgaria in the context of Thracian Fall 2010, during which American personnel "were able to train and lead more than 1,000 Bulgarian paratroopers to successful landings from U. S. Air Force in Europe's newest tactical aircraft."

As to the purpose of such exercises, an American officer present for them said, "We are hoping by them [Bulgarians] being able to observe how we conduct our operations they will use this to enhance their own ability, from paratrooper operations to flying and one day be able to conduct exercises and even assist in future conflicts." [9]

Fraud Caused the 1930s Depression and the Current Financial Crisis

Robert Shiller - one of the top housing experts in the United States - says that the mortgage fraud is a lot like the fraud which occurred during the Great Depression. As Fortune notes:

Shiller said the danger of foreclosuregate -- the scandal in which it has come to light that the biggest banks have routinely mishandled homeownership documents, putting the legality of foreclosures and related sales in doubt -- is a replay of the 1930s, when Americans lost faith that institutions such as business and government were dealing fairly.

Where this article says that "...the biggest banks have routinely mishandled homeownership documents," there is a word which should follow the word "routinely", and that is "deliberately".

Northrop Navy Ships `Not Survivable' in Combat, Official Says

Northrop Grumman Corp.’s $1.68 billion amphibious warship, designed to transport Marines close to shore, wouldn’t be effective in combat and couldn’t operate reliably after being hit by enemy fire, according to the Department of Defense’s top testing official.

The San Antonio-class vessel’s critical systems, such as electrical distribution, ship-wide fiber optics and voice- communications networks, aren’t reliable, according to Michael Gilmore, the Defense Department’s director of operational test and evaluation. The ship’s armaments can’t effectively defend against the most modern anti-ship weapons, Gilmore said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this ship is such a lemon, why did the US buy it, for 1.68 billion taxpayer dollars?!?!?

FAKE TERROR - THE ROAD TO WAR AND DICTATORSHIP

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This toner-cartridge-of-mass-destruction may be nothing more than a play for pity by Israel, or the much expected pre-election Scare-orrism by a White House looking at major congressional losses next week. But given the media focus on Yemen as the culprit, and Yemen's strategic position relative to military control of the Gulf of Aden, this is possibly another "Gliewitz" to kick off yet another war of conquest.

TSA to phase in new pat-down procedures at airports nationwide

- Airline passengers can expect to see as well as feel new pat-down procedures at U.S. airports over the coming weeks in an effort to provide another layer of security for travelers, the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This new set of procedures has absolutely nothing to do with real security, and everything to do with getting Americans cowed, scared, and accept authority , no matter how dead wrong it might be, unquestioningly and obediently.

Coming home from a music convention this year, I was wanded for the first time in my life. I was furious, but knew if I allowed that fury to show, I would certainly miss my flight.

As a choral composer, the most terrifying thing I would ever do to anyone is to require a singer sing an augmented fourth!

Forty planes and six armoured cars: Obama visit to India the 'biggest ever by a US President'

Barack Obama's trip to India next month will be the biggest by any US President - with a staggering 40 aircraft and six armoured cars.

Details of the elaborate arrangements for the tree-day presidential visit on November 6 were leaked to Indian newspaper earlier this week.

Forty aircraft - including the Air Force One military plane - and six heavily armoured cars will follow the president around the country.

How the Wars Are Sinking the Economy

Nobel Prize recipient Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard budget guru Linda J. Bilmes are revising their original $3 trillion war cost estimate. As Bilmes reports, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are at least 25 percent costlier than previous projections.

As Election Day draws near, it's pretty clear: Voters are worried about jobs, the budget deficit and the rising national debt.

But behind those issues—behind the ads and candidates' speeches, behind the rhetoric about "out-of-control" government spending—there lurks a hidden, less-talked-about issue: the cost of the ongoing wars.

HALLOWEEN - How Did Witches Come To Ride Brooms?

The popular icon of a witch is an ugly old woman riding across the sky on her magic broomstick and wearing a pointed hat. But as with all mythologies there is an element of truth behind the image. Witches did ride brooms, after a fashion, the brooms were magic, in a way, and the pointed hat was the mildest of the punishments inflicted on them for their activities!

Pakistan Still Balking at US Demands for North Waziristan Invasion

Though the Obama Administration continues to ratchet up pressure on the Pakistani government to launch a massive invasion of the North Waziristan Agency, the largely uncontrolled region in which US drone strikes have become an almost daily occurrence, the Pakistani government is still said to be rejecting the calls, insisting the US demands won’t “rush” them into launch the long-promised offensive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported on 23 October 2010 at:

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2010/10/offers-pakistan-2-billion-military-aid/

"The United States has made a new bid to improve its uneasy war partnership with Pakistan by offering a two-billion-dollar arms package but warned it will not tolerate human rights abuses."

I would not be surprised to learn, in the details of this agreement, that this desired attack by Pakistan on its North Waziristan province, isn't one of the conditions for Pakistan receiving this aid.

Yemen says UPS planes never take off or land in it

No UPS cargo planes left Yemen to other countries in the last days and there are no direct flights from Yemen to the United Kingdom or the United States, a Yemeni official said, after allegations that British and U.S. officials had found suspicious packages on planes that originated in Yemen.

The official wondered how the media mentioned the name of Yemen reporting that an explosive device was found onboard a cargo plane that landed in London coming from Yemen.

UPS planes never land or take off in Yemen, the official made clear.

Iran Agrees to Nuclear Talks, EU Confirms

Though European Union offers for international talks and public acceptances by Iran have come and gone several times over the past few weeks, the European Union took the unique step today of confirming that Iran’s acceptance this time actually counts.

But where the talks will go, if anywhere, remains to be seen. The Obama Administration is said to be planning a seriously revised version of last year’s third party enrichment deal, but will offer Iran even worse terms than the last time.

Which is particularly problematic because the last third party enrichment deal was accepted by Iran a few months after the talks and then angrily rejected by the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it appears that the US will not allow these talks to go anywhere.

CHOKING ON THE OCCUPATION

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s behaviour suggests he concurs with far-right coalition partners who advocate racist policies against non-Jews in general and Palestinians in particular. The approval by Netanyahu recently of racist laws obliging non- Jews aspiring to become Israeli citizens to pledge loyalty to Israel as a “Jewish state” and his conspicuous reluctance to condemn near daily acts of terror and vandalism by Jewish settlers against Palestinian villagers and farmers is telling of the attitude of his government overall.

PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD GAINS MOMENTUM DESPITE IT ALL

Israeli authorities are relieved that Wikileaks showed US documents proving not only that US soldiers killed civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan but that they also participated and condoned other severe violations of international law (including engaging in torture and other crimes against humanity). So the circle is now complete, the Israel-first lobby had pushed for the war on Iraq to align US and Israeli interests and actions. The idea that Americans having to kill and torture Arabs in an illegal invasion and occupation might now understand better Israel’s perpetual behavior of killing, displacing, and torturing Arabs.

CONNECTING THE DOTS: ZIONISM AND ITS EFFECTS – NAN WITHINGTON

Even more shocking is the story of the U.S. spy ship, Liberty off the coast of Sinai when the war started. Israel attacked and tried to sink the ship with no survivors. When the U.S. 6th fleet in the Mediterranean sent rescue planes, President Lyndon Johnson personally told the commander of the fleet, Admiral Geis, to call the planes back. Johnson said: “I don’t give a damn if the ship sinks and all the Americans are killed.

RACIST ZIONIST QUOTES

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not for a single second believe that this "Osama bin Toner Cartridge" is real. It reads like another in an endless series of Israel plays for sympathy. But ABCNNBBCBS are still pounding this story for all it is worth, and should you meet some useful idiot who insists this sending of packages to synagogues is real, show them these quotes and ask if maybe Israel has brought this on themselves.

Then remind them that last May, Israel attacked an humanitarian aid flotilla in international waters, hijacked a US flagged ship, and murdered aid workers, one of them a US citizen from New York. Israel has a lot of nerve asking for sympathy now with American blood on their hands!

Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi [lord and master] and eat. That is why gentiles were created.'

- Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the head of the Shas Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator, quoted in the Jerusalem Post.
Anyone still wonder why the Palestinians are treated like vermin?
Rothschild Zionist extremists like Josef are deeply sick and racism personified.

But what do they do? Condemn as 'racist' anyone who challenges their insanity, brutality and systematic genocide

Packages With Explosive Material Targeted Chicago Jewish Institutions

In summation, here's what we know:

Two packages were discovered, in Dubai and the UK, that were sent from Yemen. Those packages included explosive material, according to the President.

In response to that threat, the U.S. government stepped up surveillance on packages from Yemen coming to the U.S. That resulted in flights being stopped and checked today.

According to NBC's Richard Engel, packages were bound from Yemen for Chicago synagogues that were intercepted. Those packages contained explosive materials.

The US$200-Trillion Debt Which Cannot Be Named

The scary real U.S. government debt ... Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff says U.S. government debt is not $13.5-trillion (U.S.), which is 60 percent of current gross domestic product, as global investors and American taxpayers think, but rather 14-fold higher: $200-trillion – 840 per cent of current GDP. "Let's get real," Prof. Kotlikoff says. "The U.S. is bankrupt." Writing in the September issue of Finance and Development, a journal of the International Monetary Fund, Prof. Kotlikoff says the IMF itself has quietly confirmed that the U.S. is in terrible fiscal trouble – far worse than the Washington-based lender of last resort has previously acknowledged...

Jon Stewart and the writers and staff of the Daily Show were appearing at a popular book store in Manhattan to present and sign copies of their new book of humorous pictures and captions. I was moved to peacefully confront Jon and ask him a few questions after watching his show a few nights earlier."
