Hidden History?

“The Jewish people claim that this is talking about them, but other than the Bible, there is no historical record of anybody named “Jews,” in bondage in Egypt for 400 years. There is no historical record of their suffering in bondage like that. Now, they were freed from a “bondage,” all right—but that was in the hills and cavesides of Europe! “

“These people have no legitimate connection to The Holy Land; they didn't come into existence in The Holy Land. They came into existence, as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that Allah taught him, on the Island of Pelan; or, as it is written in the Book of Revelation, “Patmos.” They came back to the Holy Land after 600 years of grafting them from Black into “White.”

DOJ Report Says Child Porn On the Rise

The report, ordered by Congress in legislation approved two years ago, concedes that the market for child pornography continues to grow rapidly and determining its size is impossible. "The number of offenders accessing the images and videos and the quantity of images and videos being traded is unknown," the report said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would start with the clergy, then add SEC, MMS, the Pentagon, and maybe even the EPA, which has been waiting 16 years for data on the toxicity of 2-methylnapthalene when a 30 second search reveals it is a potent carcinogen!

Israeli officer killed in clash on Israel-Lebanon border

Eizenkot told Israeli media that "a routine operation was carried out during the afternoon near Misgav Am – an operation whose purpose was to trim some bushes near the border, in our [Israeli] territory. It was on both sides of the border but still within [Israeli] territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, but Israeli territory does NOT exist on both sides of the border.

Lebanese president: Stand up to Israel

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman has vowed to "stand up to Israel's violation of Resolution 1701, whatever the price" following the border flare-up between the Lebanese and Israeli armies Tuesday.

Three Lebanese soldiers were killed and four were wounded after the IDF struck a post near the southern Lebanese border village of Adaisseh, witnesses and security sources said. An Israeli helicopter fired two missiles at a Lebanese army post near Adaisseh, destroying an armoured personnel carrier, a Lebanese security source said.

Saakashvili prepares for war with Russia

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili has called on military top brass to build “total defense” and accused Russia of planning to “overthrow Georgian democracy.”

Gates hints at US ground force strikes against extremists holed up in Pak

Expressing concerns over the leakage of the Afghan war's classified documents, which nailed the Inter Services Intelligence' (ISI) links with the Taliban, US Secretary of Defence Robert Gates has hinted towards a military offensive inside Pakistan's geographical territory.

The Lunatic’s Manual

On a visit to an emergency room, he was given a 30-tablet refill of Ambien. He went to his car and killed himself by ingesting the entire prescription with a quantity of rum. He left a suicide note that said his headaches and other pain were unbearable.

As if there is not enough that has gone tragically wrong in this era of endless warfare, the military is facing an epidemic of suicides.

Kill an Arab, any Arab, is longstanding and unquestioned policy

So Israel’s rule of engagement is that any incident of violence directed at Israel from an Arab community may be answered by a lethal attack on an official of that community, regardless of whether there is any suspicion of the official’s personal responsibility for the act against Israel. The idea is that the leadership of a community is not only “responsible . . . for maintaining calm” among the entire populace, but that any random official could pay with his life for a breach of calm that he neither planned, carried out, or was aware of.

Let us imagine Palestinians employing the same rule.

China Calls Our Bluff: The U.S. is Insolvent and Faces Bankruptcy as a Pure Debtor Nation

America's biggest creditor - China - has called our bluff.

As the Financial Times notes, the head of China's biggest credit rating agency has said America is insolvent and that U.S. credit ratings are a joke:

The head of China’s largest credit rating agency has slammed his western counterparts for causing the global financial crisis and said that as the world’s largest creditor nation China should have a bigger say in how governments and their debt are rated.

“The western rating agencies are politicised and highly ideological and they do not adhere to objective standards,” Guan Jianzhong, chairman of Dagong Global Credit Rating, told the Financial Times in an interview.

Israeli Settlers Step Up ‘Price-Tag’ Policy

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira is one of the leading ideologues of the extreme wing of the religious settler movement. He is known to be a champion of the “price tag” policy of reprisal attacks on Palestinians, including punishing them for attempts by officials to enforce Israeli law against the settlements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is terrorism, plain and simple; the threat of force to coerce a change in policy.

Consumer Spending, Personal Income Both Weak

The pace of consumer spending stalled in June and personal incomes failed to increase, further evidence that the economy slowed significantly in the spring.

The Commerce Department say personal spending was unchanged in June, the third straight month of lackluster consumer demand.

Incomes were flat as well, the weakest showing in nine months.

The AP goes on to warn that, “The attacks demonstrated last week targeted stand-alone ATMs. But they could potentially could be used against the ATMs operated by mainstream banks.”

What the Associated Press and corporate for-profit media fail to report is that Diebold, one of the world’s leading ATM hardware and sofware providers, also manufactures electronic voting machines with similar problems.

Anti-Defamers Defame Muslims

What if, in the wake of the 1967 bombing of the USS Liberty by Israeli warplanes – in which 34 US servicemen were slaughtered – a campaign had been mounted to banish all synagogues from a two-mile radius of Arlington National Cemetery? How would the ADL have reacted?

Aug 03 09:18

ADL on the wrong side of Religious Freedom

Much to the surprise of many people in the human rights community, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) which has built a reputation for opposing not only Anti-Jewish bigotry but bigotry of all varieties, has issued a statement opposing the building of a new mosque in lower Manhattan, New York because it would cause “pain” for the families of the September 11, 2001 victims.

But the real “pain” involved is the ALD’s apparent siding with political forces who are using the tragedy of 9-11 to disguise their attack on Muslim civil and religious rights in America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the point I was making further down. If it were a synagogue at the 9-11 site being blocked (After all, the only people arrested on 9-11 were Israelis) the ADL would be screaming "anti-Semite" in all directions.

Aug 03 09:12

How The ADL Wants To Outlaw Christians

Few familiar with the 97 year history of the Anti-Defamation League would deny its ambition to destroy the Christian/conservative right. ADL's first great step was passing its federal hate crimes law last fall. The next stage was indicated last week by national director Abe Foxman. He said 80 million Americans are "anti-Semitic"-40 million "seriously infected" and 40 million "mildly" so.

What is Foxman's reason for ensnaring so many in such a preposterously wide net? He is spinning a mythology that anti-Semitism in America is a "serious national problem"-one, like the "epidemic" of hate crimes, to be met with federal legislation.

Obama says his father served in World War II

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reality check: Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama's father) Born 4/4/36 Died 11/24/82 at the age of 46

He was 5 years old when WW 2 started, and less than 9.5 years old when it ended.

Lolo Soetoro (Obama's step father) Born 1935 Died 3/2/87 at the age of 52

He was 6 years old when WW 2 started, and 10 years old when it ended.

And nobody at ABCNNBBCBS ever thought to check Obama's claim about his father serving in WW2?

Arabs’ Ties with Israel Damages the Palestinian Cause: Prof Gilbert Achcar

Four countries have established relations with Israel among the Arab states and they are Egypt, Jordan, Qatar and Oman. This is damaging for the cause of the Palestinians, especially when the country betraying them is Egypt which is the largest Arab country. This is a result of the increasing hegemony of the United States over the Middle East, which pushes the Arab governments to establish relations with the state of Israel against the will of their own people.

Let Them Eat Cake

Before we attend to the poor political judgment of such an extravagant affair during times of economic distress, let us wonder aloud where a poor boy who became governor of Arkansas and president of the United States got such a fortune that he can blow $3,000,000 on a wedding.

The American people did not take up a collection to reward him for his service to them.

Where did the money come from? Who was he really serving during his eight years in office?

How did Tony Blair and his wife, Cherrie, end up with an annual income of ten million pounds (approximately $15 million dollars) as soon as he left office? Who was Blair really serving?

These are not polite questions, and they are infrequently asked.

South Africa’s lessons for Gaza

What is apartheid? As defined by the 1973 United Nations convention, apartheid is a policy of racial or ethnic segregation founded on a set of discriminatory practices that favor a specific group in order to ensure its racial supremacy over another group (“International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the crime of Apartheid,” 30 November 1973).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look around you. It is starting to happen here in the USA! Helen Thomas, Olivia Nasr, Mel Gibson, Oliver Stone, etc. etc. etc. etc. Look at the manner in which the media treats the controversy over the Ground Zero Mosque, and ask yourself if they would give the exact same treatment if the building in question were a synagogue? US roads are allowed to revert back to gravel and dirt while US tax dollars pay for Israeli roads in the West Bank. Americans starve while US tax dollars pay for Israel's weapons. The US Government turns a blind eye when Israel attacks Americans on the USS Liberty or the Aid Flotilla. Laws exist that punish asking questions about the history of WW2 while taxpayer funded museums to the official legend are built across the land to enforce adherence to the3 orthodoxy.

Is the USA already becoming an apartheid state like Israel?

Panel vote could clear way for ground zero mosque

A contentious plan for a mosque near the World Trade Center site will get a boost if New York City's landmarks panel votes Tuesday to allow the demolition of the building that the mosque would replace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The vote has already happened, and the building was not granted landmark status,. so the demolition can proceed to make way for the new project. As a point of clarification, the project is a community center along the lines of the YMCA, but the focus has been on the Mosque which will be a part of the center.

Now, given that the only people actually arrested on 9-11 were Mossad, I wonder what the reaction of the media would be if there was an effort to block construction of a synagogue near Ground Zero?

Defining Prosperity Down

Paul Krugman

I’m starting to have a sick feeling about prospects for American workers — but not, or not entirely, for the reasons you might think.

Yes, growth is slowing, and the odds are that unemployment will rise, not fall, in the months ahead. That’s bad. But what’s worse is the growing evidence that our governing elite just doesn’t care — that a once-unthinkable level of economic distress is in the process of becoming the new normal.

CMI 'Daily Growth Index' Turns Sharply Lower

More telling perhaps for economic forecasts is that the longevity of the current contraction is somewhat rarer than its nominal severity. Our 183-day moving 'two consecutive quarters' growth index would place that 6-month span in the 4th percentile of consecutive quarters since 1947. Only roughly one in every 25 six-month periods since the first Truman Administration would have been worse.

The Trouble with Unconstitutional Wars

Ron Paul

Our foreign policy was in the spotlight last week, which is exactly where it should be. Almost two years ago many voters elected someone they thought would lead us to a more peaceful, rational co-existence with other countries. However, while attention has been focused on the administration's disastrous economic policies, its equally disastrous foreign policies have exacerbated our problems overseas. Especially in times of economic crisis, we cannot afford to ignore costly foreign policy mistakes. That's why it is important that U.S. foreign policy receive some much needed attention in the media, as it did last week with the leaked documents scandal.

22 Statistics About America’s Coming Pension Crisis That Will Make You Lose Sleep At Night

As the first of the 80 million Baby Boomers have begun to retire, it has become increasingly apparent that the United States is facing a pension crisis of unprecedented magnitude.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the reason is very simple. Back in the 1980s Social Security Taxes were increased to build up a cash surplus in the trust fund to cover the expected baby boomer retirements. Then President Bill Clinton took that cash and spent it as general funds, which is where he got his miraculous budget "surplus."

The US military vehemently rejected the casualty numbers Sunday afternoon, however, countering that its own data showed that only 222 Iraqis were killed in July.

Without these microbes to prime the immune system, children are more likely to grow up suffering from asthma, eczema and other allergies, they say.

Pakistan president: coalition forces 'losing war against Taliban in Afghanistan'

On the eve of his meeting with David Cameron, the Prime Minister, Mr Zardari warned the international community that it had “lost the battle to win hearts and minds”.

In an interview with Le Monde, the French newspaper, on Tuesday Mr Zardari said the US and Nato-led coalition forces had "underestimated the situation on the ground" in Afghanistan, Pakistan's war-torn western neighbour.

"I believe that the international community, which Pakistan belongs to, is in the process of losing the war against the Taliban," he told the paper just hours before meeting Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President, in Paris on Monday night.

"And that is, above all, because we have lost the battle for hearts and minds."

Cancer cells slurp up fructose, U.S. study finds

They said their finding, published in the journal Cancer Research, may help explain other studies that have linked fructose intake with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancer types.

Wikileaks Confirm US Funds Taliban

August 2, 2010

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Oh! The horror! The betrayal!

Wikileak documents reveal that Pakistan has been funding the Taliban.

"The Taliban are stronger than ever and a crucial component of their success is the support they receive from Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The military spy agency nurtured the Taliban in the 1990s and has maintained ties to the group ever since."

And guess who has been funding Pakistan and the ISI to the tune of billions of dollars? Billions of which "go missing?"

Just two weeks ago, Hillary Clinton announced millions more. Obama officials say the US-Pakistani relationship will not be harmed by these revelations.

Of course not. The goyim must continue to destroy themselves in Afghanistan.

The Social Security Scam – Why all taxpayers must file income tax returns

You have been told that Social Security is an insurance program run by the federal government. You were led to believe that your income would be taxed at a certain rate for the cost of the program. Then in times of medical emergency or upon retirement you would be eligible for Social Security benefits. On the surface, this would seem to be an equitable arrangement.

But the federal government failed to fully inform you as to all of the other ramifications of applying for a Social Security number. For instance, did you know that you became a federal employee? Well, you did - specifically you became a member of the Merchant Marine. You also became an employee of a corporation that is involved with importing to and from the U.S. possessions. Another consideration is that if FICA is based upon a percentage of your earnings, then the government has somehow been granted the right to know the amount of your income and the sources of your income – this is not a hallmark of freedom. These statements and more will be evidenced by the actual federal statutes and regulations further on this page.

Like all great magicians, the federal government has you looking at the obvious while hiding the basis of the trick that the magician is performing right in front of your eyes.

US regulators out of the loop on chemical risk

American regulators, charged with ensuring the safety of food and consumer products, are in the dark about the suspected chemical, 2-methylnaphthalene. The Food and Drug Administration has no scientific data on its impact on human health.

The Environmental Protection Agency also lacks basic health and safety data for 2-methylnaphthalene - even though the EPA has been seeking that information from the chemical industry for 16 years.

It took me thirty seconds with a search engine to identify a medical journal article showing that 2-methylnaphthalene is a major carcinogen.

Project Vigilant and the government/corporate destruction of privacy

So, while Lamo has repeatedly denied (including in his interview with me) that he ever worked with federal authorities, it turns out that he was a "volunteer analyst" for an entity which collects private Internet data in order to process it and turn it over to the Federal Government.

This week, the last piece fell into place. The National Research Council, part of the National Academy of Science, heavy on politics and light on science, announced that America was no longer able to track nukes threatening our shores. Their report titled Nuclear Forensics: A Capability at Risk, released last week, outlines the details of a secret study requested by the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense and Energy, specifically the National Nuclear Security Administration. The gist of the story is easy, if a nuke goes off in America, dirty nuke in Times Square, one in a container at a port, anywhere, America won’t be able to tell who made it. Not a word of the report is true.

Wikileaks, causes for concern

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The recent document dump by Wikileaks provides nothing to support the anti-war movements, while justifying the expansion of the wars into Pakistan and Iran on the grounds of fighting the Taliban.

That Assange is engaging in fraud is revealed by his inclusion of reports on Osama Bin Laden even though Osama is documented as having died in late 2001. Assange's utter "It ain't a conspiracy unless it's MY conspiracy" dismissal of the 9-11 truth movement calls his agenda into question.

Roll Over or Get Tough

Time Warner Cable is asking for public comments no whether to accept higher programming prices or allow blackouts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is my comment: I am ready to live entirely without CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC News, NBC News, ABC News, and every other "News" channel trying to tell us all is well with the nation and how much fun war is!

That should save a lot on our cable bills!

Leaderless Resistance

The concept of Leaderless Resistance was proposed by Col. Ulius Louis Amoss, who was the founder of International Service of Information Incorporated, located in Baltimore, Maryland. Col. Amoss died more than fifteen years ago, but during his life was a tireless opponent of communism, as well as a skilled Intelligence Officer. Col. Amoss first wrote of Leaderless Resistance on April 17, 1962...

SEC charges billionaire Texas brothers who donate to GOP with fraud

Sam and Charles Wyly, billionaire Texas brothers who gained prominence spending millions of dollars on conservative political causes, committed fraud by using secret overseas accounts to generate more than $550 million in profit through illegal stock trades, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Thursday.

According to the SEC, the brothers, who live in Dallas, created an elaborate and clandestine network of accounts and companies on the Isle of Man and in the Cayman Islands. The brothers then used these accounts and companies to trade more than $750 million of stock in four public companies on whose boards they served, not filing the disclosures required for corporate insiders, the SEC said.

In one case, the SEC alleges that the Wylys traded based on insider information they learned as board members, netting a profit of $32 million.

A primer for disproving IPCC’s theory of man made global warming using observed temperature data

Comparison of the claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of 1) “Most of the observed increase in global average temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely” man made, and 2) “For the next two decades a warming rate of 0.2 deg C per decade is projected” are shown in this article not to be supported by the observed data, thus disproving IPCC’s theory of man made global warming.

Making Gaza A 'European Ghetto'

While most Israeli leaders are resistant to fully lifting the blockade of Gaza, Avigdor Lieberman, the right-wing foreign minister, is advocating that Israel abandon the Strip to international monitoring and economic rehabilitation.

The proposal, recently leaked to the Israeli press, does not amount to freeing Gaza but rather to placing it under European sea and land inspections and a reconstruction plan.

Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arizona Sheriff's Head

A Mexican drug cartel has reportedly put a hefty price tag on the head of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Mexican drug lords are already able to get past the border as it is right now. A totally open border means lots of new competition, which will force drug prices down. Not sure what drug lord wants that!

On the other hand, lurid stories of "Colombian Neckties" awaiting Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a great way to keep immigration as the top issue going into the election season!

House approves oil spill legislation

The bill, passed 209 to 193, would impose new safeguards for offshore drilling, remove a liability cap for spill damages, and hit energy producers with a new tax to fund conservation measures.

In its most sweeping response to the gulf oil spill, the House on Friday approved legislation that would impose new environmental safeguards for offshore drilling, remove a liability cap for spill damages, and slap industry with a new tax to fund conservation projects nationwide.

The measure, which follows dozens of Capitol Hill hearings into the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, would remove a $75-million liability cap on oil firms for economic damages caused by spills. It would also hit energy producers with a new $2 per barrel tax to fund land purchases for national parks, forests and wildlife refuges.

Article Comment: Taxation is a lazy, uninspired means of effecting regulation. It's time to nationalize the oil industry and eject all foreign-owned oil companies. It should have been done decades ago.

Revered Rabbi Preaches Slaughter Of Gentile Babies

A rabbi from one of the most violent settlements in the West Bank was questioned on suspicion of incitement last week as Israeli police stepped up their investigation into a book in which he sanctions the killing of non-Jews, including children and babies.

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira is one of the leading ideologues of the extreme wing of the religious settler movement. He is known to be a champion of the “price-tag” policy of reprisal attacks on Palestinians, including punishing them for attempts by officials to enforce Israeli law against the settlements.

Bringing the Extremes into the Middle.

I tell myself I’m not going to write anything today. I’ll take the day off …but this is what I do with my days. If I take the day off then that’s probably what I will do for recreation. It’s important to me to communicate with you because I’m always being communicated with and it has to go somewhere if I start to overflow. This relationship of mine isn’t easy a lot of the time.

Your Choice: Thomas Jefferson or the Status Quo

Nullification isn’t constitutional, Tucker rushes to assure everyone, since he doesn’t see it mentioned anywhere in the U.S. Constitution itself. But that’s the thing about the powers of the states: they don’t have to be mentioned explicitly. Only the powers of the federal government (as well as the restrictions on the states) are to be specifically enumerated. That’s the nature of a limited, federal system. And as I show in the book, the power of nullification was indeed assured to the people at the state ratifying convention of Virginia, the state from which so many of our most important statesmen and thinkers hailed. Add to this the obvious, commonsense point that a federal government allowed to have a monopoly on determining its own powers will continuously discover new ones, which happens to be precisely what has occurred, and you have a logically unassailable case for state nullification. (For that matter, where in the Constitution is the federal government granted the exclusive, monopoly power to judge its own powers infallibly? Assigning certain kinds of cases to the Supreme Court is not the same thing, and the Supremacy Clause, as I show in the book, merely begs the question.)

Some of us are a little tired of electing do-nothing plastic men who intensify our fiscal problems, and then hope the rubes fall for their pretty talk about limited government. We’re also impatient with the equally failed strategy of waiting for the federal government’s own courts to roll it back – a foolish approach Jefferson viewed with contempt, since he knew the federal courts would simply rubber-stamp federal usurpations. Forgive me if I remain unconvinced that the best strategy for rolling back government is to wait for a good Supreme Court, perhaps in the year 2874, or to keep writing to my bought-and-paid-for congressman.

Two dozen states nullified the REAL ID Act of 2005, and the federal government had to back down. California persisted in its medical marijuana policy after the Supreme Court said to cut it out. (Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana wrote amicus briefs in support of California, by the way, since even though those states disagreed with its policy, they also believed in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.) Several states have already nullified various federal gun regulations. Cap-and-trade nullification is being drafted as we speak.

First Web-based Jailbreak for iPhone 4 arrives; here's how to do it

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A recent court ruling has declared that jailbreaking your own equipment is not a violation of the DMCA. So have fun, but remember that once you step past Apple's boundaries, you are on your own and if you do not know what you are doing, you can wreck your phone. Final note is that this web system is VERY busy and it will probably take a while to complete the process.

Obama On The Iraq Drawdown: 'As Promised and On Schedule'

“As a candidate for President, I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. Shortly after taking office, I announced our new strategy for Iraq and for a transition to full Iraqi responsibility. And I made it clear that by August 31, 2010 America’s combat mission in Iraq would end. That is exactly what we are doing—as promised, and on schedule.”

The president says that by the end of the month more than 90,000 troops will have come home from Iraq since he took office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, when Obama was campaigning, he said nothing about waiting until August 1, 2010. He said "first thing" and "you can take that to the bank."

Now we are in another campaign season and Obama is crowing how 90,000 troops have been brought back home from Iraq since he took office ... without mentioning how may have been sent, and mopre to the point, how many were sent back two and three times. The fact is that this is Obama's "Mission Accomplished" moment; an election season hoax underscored by the admission that at least 50,000 troops will remain in Iraq, just under a different name, so they don't count as combat troops.

On Friday, 30 July, a group of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian fields in the town of Burin in the West Bank. They set the fields on fire and assaulted a number of citizens who attempted to defend their land. Hundreds of dunums (one dunum equals 1,000 square meters) of land near the Hawara military checkpoint were also set ablaze, destroying hundreds of olive trees.
