WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage." -- Alexander Tyler

Even Top Climate Change Negotiator Admits Cap And Tax “Out Of Control”

Former climate change negotiator for Bill Clinton and Democratic Senator Timothy Wirth admits that the cap and trade proposal is “out of control,” and makes no sense whatsoever.

Such a scornful rebuke from somebody who would normally be expected to vehemently support climate change legislation goes to show just how nightmarish the plans really are.

Sources: UN watchdog hiding evidence on Iran nuclear program

The world's nuclear weapons watchdog is hiding data on Iran's drive to obtain nuclear arms, senior Western diplomats and Israeli officials told Haaretz.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Western diplomats and Israeli officials made the same claim to explain why the IAEA didn't find evidence of "nookular bombs" in Iraq, too.

And look how that turned out.

Users Sue Facebook Over Its Claim That it Owns Their Content

Case could set a precedent for whether MySpace and Facebook have a right to take ownership of user content

Facebook has had its fair share of privacy debacles. When its user update service began posting user purchases from advertising partners and other unwanted information, it faced a flurry of criticism. In the time since, it has worked to make sure that the site keeps its users information private and has beefed up security as well.

GOES-O Releases First Solar Image

GOES- 14, formerly GOES-O, has achieved another significant milestone with the release of the first formal Solar Image from the Solar X-Ray Imager (SXI). The engineering and operations team has finished its initial instrument calibration and alignments and produced the image of the sun on August 13, 2009 at approximately 10:05 EDT. The SXI instrument is built by Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center in Palo Alto, California. The instrument and the spacecraft continue to operate normally as NASA continues the post launch testing.

Need less then 8.5 hours sleep you may be a mutant

Forget the caffeine, this genetic mutation may be even better at keeping you up at night

If you have a friend that only sleeps for 5 or 6 hours a night, they may not be unhealthy, they may in fact be a mutant. Humans, like any other species, are constantly mutating and evolving and one recent genetic change has been the appearance of people who require less sleep.

Scientists have tracked the condition to a mutant copy of the gene DEC2. DEC2 controls circadian rhythms and oxygen regulation in mammals. Mice bred with the abnormal copy of the gene were more active and slept less than their peers which had the typical wild type gene.

Top 50 US War Criminals

The occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan have seen the United States target civilians, journalists, hospitals, and ambulances, use antipersonnel weapons including cluster bombs in densely settled urban areas, use white phosphorous as a weapon, use depleted uranium weapons, employ a new version of napalm found in Mark 77 firebombs, engage in collective punishment of Iraqi civilian populations -- including by blocking roads, cutting electricity and water, destroying fuel stations, planting bombs in farm fields, demolishing houses, and plowing down orchards -- detain people without charge or legal process without the rights of prisoners of war, imprison children, torture, and murder.

Justice Antonin Scalia is NOT a real Catholic

when a supposed "devout" Catholic does, says and writes things, which stand in total opposition to the Church leadership in the Vatican, in opposition to the local Church leaders, the American bishops, and on top of it contradict "natural law" and justice as is taught in the catechism as well as a general feeling for fairness, I absolutely refuse to accept my share of the collective responsibility for that guy.

Columnist Robert Novak first to sugget in print 9/11 was an "inside job".

Interestingly, columnist Robert Novak was among the first to use the phrase "inside job" in connection with the events of 9-11.

New York Post, Sept. 13, page 59
"Beyond Pearl Harbor"
by Robert D. Novak

Novak's first sentence:

Security experts and airline officials agree privately that the simultaneous hijacking of four jetliners was an "inside job," probably indicating complicity beyond malfeasance.

He continues further down:

In the rage and mourning following Tuesday's disaster, few officials wanted to dwell on how a 10-year hiatus of airline hijackings in this country could be followed by four in one hour. At a minimum, the blame can be put on ill-trained, incompetent personnel performing the screening of passengers. At the worst, security experts fear collusion with terrorists, possibly even extending to the cockpit. This is a subject that the airlines are loathe to discuss.

To the extent that China's stimulus plan is working better than in the U.S. and the U.K., this seems to be because the government is using the banks for public ends, rather than allowing the banks to use the government for private ends.

The Chinese solution to a failed banking system would be to nationalize the banks themselves, not just their bad debts. If the U.S. were to adopt that approach, we the people would actually get something of value for our investment -- a stable and accountable banking system that belongs to the people.

Green Tea Shown to Fight Colds, Flu and Even Cancer

A recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition looked at the effect of green tea on health during the flu season. The study followed 118 healthy adults for three months during flu season; the participants ingested a capsule twice per day. The capsule was either decaffeinated green tea extract, which contained a standardized amount of the two immune-activating plant components found in green tea - L-theanine and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG); or a placebo.

The poor people, the people with poor credit did not come to buy a car, they didn’t go through this process. As a matter of fact, this program is being paid for by the poor people, because they’re taking the clunkers off the highway. They’re deliberately hauling these in if they do end up in these car lots, they’re purposely destroyed which undermines the very market that the poor people depend on.

Why More Americans Should Care About America

America,the nation built on the backs of slaves,warriors and martyrs is currently in a state of helplessness. Many Americans will hesitate to admit it but that nation is being wrung dry of dissidence,resistance and true patriotism – one that deems it necessary to remain loyal to America first before any other foreign entity (i.e Israel).
It’s all too vapid and cliché to declare the current situation in America as a state of urgency,for it has been fairly obvious to the small wide-eyed minority that the United States has been under the sweaty palm of imperialism for far too long.

It was delightfully appropriate that, as large parts of Argentina were swept by severe blizzards last week, on a scale never experienced before, the city of Nashville, Tennessee, should have enjoyed the coolest July 21 in its history, breaking a record established in 1877. Appropriate, because Nashville is the home of Al Gore, the man who for 20 years has been predicting that we should all by now be in the grip of runaway global warming.

Flashback: Palin's Joker Exposure. Obama's Communism Gov't Agenda

Palin Charges Against Obama Seem to Move from Socialism to Communism
October 25, 2008 10:53 PM
In Iowa today, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin charged that if Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., wins, he would usher in an era of “government as part of your family, taking care of us, making decisions for us.”
A member of the audience twice yelled “He’s a Socialist!”
But really, in many ways what Palin was describing sounded more Communist.
"See, under a big government agenda, what you thought was yours, your income, your property, your inventory, your investments, really would belong to somebody else, to everybody else,” Palin said. “And it would be shared with everybody else.”

Are We Really Cattle?

Have we really become “We the sheeple,” or are we still human beings? The planet is dying under the thrall of a small minority of men who think of the rest of the human race as “cattle,” livestock for them to buy and sell.

The ruling class behaves much like a spoiled child, if they don’t get to have everything their way all of the time, they throw this massive temper tantrum and threaten to upset the whole game. They have gotten their way in everything for so long that they have fallen under the spell of their own propaganda. They believe that we are sub-human animals, who should be herded into the best outcome possible. But, have the rest of us begun to accept this as well?

Israel declares shooting of American an "act of war"

The Israeli Ministry of Defense sent a letter containing this declaration to the Anderson family’s lawyers, according to attorney Leah Tsemel who is perusing a civil suit against the Israeli government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, if Israel holds that what they are doing in the occupied territories IS war, then the usual rules for war must apply.

Obama's Healthcare Deception, Communism in Socialistic Disguise

Defining socialism and single-payer health care
By Jerry Mazza
Aug 17, 2009, 00:21
That’s something you should be scared of, not socialism. What is scary in socialism’s varied history is the face of the totalitarian prince of darkness, Joseph Stalin. Stalin subverted this noble idea into a tool for his own absolute, brutal rule over the Russian people. Yet there are socialist economies in Sweden, Britain, Belgium, and around the world that are totally benign and not totalitarian. Stalin was to socialism what Hitler was to Germany, and then some. In fact, socialism is not so much a political idea or system as it is an economic concept, with the prime purpose to level inequities between the rich, the middle class, and the poor. It’s that simple.

The revelation that the author of the Obama Joker poster is a politically independent Muslim-American, and not a Republican white supremacist as the establishment left had hoped, puts the final nail in the coffin of the smear that the poster depicting President Obama as Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker in Batman was in any way racist.

America's Warfare State Lining the pockets of Pentagon contractors

"On my last day in Iraq," veteran McClatchy News correspondent Leila Fadel wrote August 9th, "as on my first day in Iraq, I couldn’t see what the United States and its allies had accomplished. …I couldn’t understand what thousands of American soldiers had died for and why hundreds of thousands of Iraqis had been killed.

Quite a few oil company CEO’s and "defense" industry executives, however, do have a pretty good idea of why that war is being fought. As Michael Cherkasky, president of Kroll Inc., said a year after the Iraq invasion boosted his security firm’s profits 231 percent: "It’s the Gold Rush." What follows is a brief look at some of the outfits that cashed in, and at the multitudes that got took.

“Secure Flight,” Insecure Travel Rights

By combining the requirement for government photo IDs in order to fly with checking government watchlists including potentially every passenger, “Secure Flight” puts the federal government into the business of licensing travel. All travelers will need government OK in order to board a flight, or take a cruise. What the government can allow one day, it can forbid the next. All things considered, isn’t this a higher-tech and later-day version of South African domestic passports or eastern European checkpoints? In fact, because of the high technological capacity of the U.S. version, aren’t its implications for travel control of plane, train, bus and subway travel much more far reaching? It’s incredible that something like this is happening relatively unrecognized in America.

Following Zakheim and Pentagon trillions to Israel and 9-11

Think of this as part two of Recherche du trillions perdu, my Online Journal article on Dov Zakheim, former Bush appointee as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. At that time he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. Actually, nearly three years earlier, Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10, 2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. That story, as I mentioned, was buried under 9-11’s rubble. The two sums disappeared on Zakheim’s watch.

US Turns Blind Eye to Israel’s New Separation Policy

In an echo of restrictions already firmly in place in Gaza, Israel has begun barring movement between Israel and the West Bank for those holding a foreign passport, including humanitarian aid workers and thousands of Palestinian residents.

The new policy is designed to force foreign citizens, mainly from North America and Europe, to choose between visiting Israel – including East Jerusalem, which Israel has annexed illegally – and the West Bank.

Jobless spike compounds foreclosure crisis

The country's growing unemployment is overtaking subprime mortgages as the main driver of foreclosures, according to bankers and economists, threatening to send even higher the number of borrowers who will lose their homes and making the foreclosure crisis far more complicated to unwind.

There is no such thing as a "jobless recovery."

The "moratorium" will be in effect until the beginning of 2010, when the Israeli Prime Minister says he hopes to gain international support for Israel's sovereignty in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and for large settlement blocs in the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bluntly put, this is simply a PR ploy "delaying tactic" on the part of Netanyahu's government, to get precisely everything they want, and give the Palestinians nothing.

Please remember: the start of 2010 is just in a little over 4 months away, not a great amount of time.

U.S. slashes swine flu vaccine estimate

Citing delays in manufacturing and packaging the vaccines, the Department of Health and Human Services said only 45 million doses of the new H1N1 vaccine would be on hand in mid-October, instead of the 120 million previously forecast.

"Our latest information from the manufacturers tells us that we now expect to have about 45 million doses by October 15 with approximately 20 million doses being delivered each week thereafter, up to the 195 million doses that we have purchased," Bill Hall, an HHS spokesman, said in an e-mail.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this will cause the government to approve the use of untested adjuvants in these vaccinations, such as squalene (implicated in peer-reviewed studies as a partial contributor to Gulf War Syndrome)to "supercharge" the vaccines but actually needing less vaccine per injection.

Also, as reported in


"Now the Washington Post confirms that most of the swine flu vaccines that will be available in the fall, probably in October, will contain thimerosal.

"Thimerosal is about half mercury. It is an antibacterial additive allowing caregivers to administer shots in multi doses. Really, the main benefit is that it’s more cost effective than single dose shots. But mercury is a known neurotoxin, one that pregnant women and children carefully steer clear from when choosing fish meals."

Thimerosal has been linked to autism, as reported here:


"This new study leaves little doubt there is a direct causal link between mercury exposure from Thimerosal-preserved biological products (vaccines and Rho(D) products) and mercury poisoning diagnosed as an autism spectrum disorder (ASD)."

Obama: Afghan war secures America

US President Barack Obama says there will be no quick or easy victory over the Taliban, noting that the war in Afghanistan is crucial in protecting Americans from terrorism.

"This will not be quick, nor easy. But we must never forget this is not a war of choice, this is a war of necessity," he said. "If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which al-Qaeda would plot to kill more Americans," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to President Obama; sir, please stop lying to the American people.

To say that this is a war of necessity, and not a war of choice would be laughable, if so many more people, Americans and Afghan nationals didn't have to continue dying.

The Bush administration attempted to negotiate with the Taliban in August of 2001, but thought that the price was too high in terms of installing the pipelines to control the flow of oil.

They obviously thought that a war would somehow be cheaper, and American blood and money was completely expendable to secure that objective.

The US-installed puppet government, lead by former UNOCAL executive Hamid Karzai, is so crooked its membership has to collectively screw its socks on. And this "election" in Afghanistan? That again would be laughable, except for the legacy it will leave for the Afghan people, which in general will continue to be misery, poverty, and want.

This was, Mr. President, absolutely a war of choice to "pacify" the Afghan population enough to install the pipelines to control the oil, and to protect the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

You know this, Mr. President, I know this, and every thinking American knows this.

So please; stop lying to us.

Is the Chinese Government Really This Dumb?

China's $200 billion sovereign wealth fund, China Investment Corp, plans to invest soon in U.S. taxpayer subsidised investment funds of toxic mortgage-backed securities, Reuters is reporting.

Under the Public-Private Investment Plan launched earlier this year, the U.S. government plans to seed a number of PPIP funds that would combine taxpayer money with private capital to buy as much as $40 billion in toxic securities from banks.

On the surface this is a great play for CIC, since the U.S, would, for all practical purposes, be financing CIC's leveraging up of its investment.

What the institutionalization of torture by the US as a matter of policy has led to is the following.

First, we have, for all practical intents and purposes, unilaterally withdrawn from any and all human rights accords to which we have been a signatory.

Our political representatives can no longer speak with a straight face about valuing human rights, human dignity, and democracy when they torture, because the world knows they are lying.

Also, when a country tortures prisoners of war, it gives other countries carte blanche to do precisely the same to any
American civilian or military personnel they have captured, making captured Americans infinitely less safe than they would have been otherwise.

5 Ways You’re Treated Like a Criminal Every Day

Most people are not criminals. Sure, everybody breaks a law or two, here and there. But for the most part, we’re all a pretty law-abiding bunch. So when you’re not breaking the law, being treated like you are should piss you off. Here are the five most common ways people are treated like criminals, even when they’re not doing anything wrong whatsoever

"Operation Cast Lead": A statistical analysis

omplete with a series of tables, the information is a comprehensive documentation that may serve as a point of reference for the claims that will be filed in the International Criminal Courts as well as for research on the efficacy and deliberateness of Israeli targetting of civilians and their property, as has been amply claimed by all who have witnessed the carnage.

Huckabee says 2 states in Holy Land 'unrealistic'

U.S. presidential contender Mike Huckabee said Tuesday there should be no Palestinian state in the West Bank and endorsed Israeli settlements there, sharply disagreeing with Washington and much of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope every American voter remembers this obvious and shameless pandering to Israel by a man who supposedly wants to be President of the US.

America needs leaders who put America first, second, and third.

Obeisance to Israel is a luxury we can no longer afford (if indeed we ever really could).

DNA evidence can be fabricated, scientists say

A scientific company specialized in forensic DNA analysis revealed that while DNA fingerprinting is considered one of the leading forensic tools in dealing with criminal cases, DNA evidence can easily be falsified and planted at crime scenes prior to collection by law enforcement officers.

According to the Tel Aviv-based life science company, Nucleix, a sample of DNA matching any profile can be constructed using basic equipment and access to DNA or a DNA profile in a database without obtaining any tissue from that person.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder who is paying Nucleix to figure out ways to frame people.

Racism and ‘anti-terror’ laws — a threat to civil liberties

On August 12, ALP federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland announced a discussion paper that foreshadowed a new raft of draconian “anti-terror” laws. The proposed new laws would give police the power to enter premises without a warrant and create new “terrorist” offences.

McClelland said new laws were needed to prohibit “an act that is designed to attack our electronic system”. He also flagged changes that would redefine “terrorism” to include causing “psychological harm” and making terrorism-related hoaxes or threats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Terrorism related hoaxes?

Like 9-11?

Unemployment Spike Compounds Foreclosure Crisis

Economists estimate that 1.8 million borrowers will lose their homes this year, up from 1.4 million last year, according to Moody's Economy.com. And the government, which has already committed billions of dollars to foreclosure-prevention efforts, has found it far more difficult to help people who have lost their paychecks than those whose mortgage payments became unaffordable because of an interest-rate increase.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no such thing as a "jobless recovery" !

Law enforcement group takes 'legalize drugs' message to Washington Post readers

Cities and states license beer and tobacco sellers to control where, when and to whom drugs are sold. Ending Prohibition saved lives because it took gangsters out of the game. Regulated alcohol doesn't work perfectly, but it works well enough. Prescription drugs are regulated, and while there is a huge problem with abuse, at least a system of distribution involving doctors and pharmacists works without violence and high-volume incarceration. Regulating drugs would work similarly: not a cure-all, but a vast improvement on the status quo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, this would be a logical approach, and has been tried with a strong degree of success in Portugal, where treatment, and not incarceration, is the approach of choice.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't hold my breath to see such legislation passed.

Nationwide Revolt Against Mass Swine Flu Vaccination Accelerates

he nationwide revolt against government plans to implement a mass swine flu vaccination program in the United Kingdom has picked up steam, with a poll revealing that a third of NHS nurses will refuse to take the shot.

Despite nurses and frontline health workers being the primary target group to take the vaccine, just 37 per cent of them said they would take the swine flu vaccine in a survey conducted by Nursing Times magazine. 30 per cent said they would not be immunized and 33 per cent said they were unsure.

Obama tacitly backs military's takeover of Honduran democracy

President Obama is making a big mistake in coddling the dictatorship in Honduras, and putting his administration at odds with the rest of the hemisphere. It also looks terrible to the world that his government so easily abandons its professed commitment to democracy and the rule of law.

President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras was overthrown by the military on June 28. Most of Latin America saw this as a threat to democracy in the hemisphere, immediately condemned the coup, and strongly supported Zelaya's return. The Organization of American States as well as the General Assembly of the United Nations called for Zelaya's "immediate and unconditional" return.

Fake Elections Won’t Bring Peace to Afghanistan

This week’s presidential election in Afghanistan will be an elaborate piece of political theater designed to show increasingly uneasy Western voters that progress is being made in the war-torn nation after seven years of US-led occupation.

Most Afghans already believe they know who will win the vote: the candidate chosen by the United States and its NATO allies.

Voting will mostly be held in urban areas, under the guns of US and NATO troops. The countryside, ruled by Taliban, who are often local farmers moonlighting as fighters, is too dangerous for this electoral charade. Over half of Afghanistan is under Taliban influence by day, 75% at night.

To the extent that China's stimulus plan is working better than in the U.S. and the U.K., this seems to be because the government is using the banks for public ends, rather than allowing the banks to use the government for private ends.


"The banks -- hard to believe in a time when we're facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created -- are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. They frankly own the place."

Hitler was a Godsend for Israel

If Hitler didn't exist, the Zionists would have had to create him. Maybe they did.

The numbers (from Edwin Black's The Transfer Agreement) tell the story. In 1927, about 15,000 of Germany's 550,000 Jews considered themselves Zionists. That's less than 2%.

The vast majority of German Jews "vehemently rejected Zionism as an enemy from within." Eighty thousand had fought in the trenches and 12,000 had died. "Nowhere was the opposition of Jews [to Zionism] so widespread, principled, and fierce as in Germany," a Zionist historian wrote. (168)

Word gets around: Twilight and the trick of the psychopaths

Psychopaths have played a disproportionate role in the development of civilization, because they are hard-wired to lie, kill, cheat, steal, torture, manipulate, and generally inflict great suffering on other humans without feeling any remorse, in order to establish their own sense of security through domination. The inventor of civilization - the first tribal chieftain who successfully brainwashed an army of controlled mass murderers - was almost certainly a genetic psychopath. Since that momentous discovery, psychopaths have enjoyed a significant advantage over non-psychopaths in the struggle for power in civilizational hierarchies - especially military hierarchies.

US hacker charged with stealing 130m credit card IDs

A serial hacker has been charged with carrying out the largest theft of credit card identities ever recorded in the US, in a sophisticated scam in which he and accomplices allegedly stole at least 130m accounts from big retail companies.

Albert Gonzalez, 28, of Miami, who once worked with the US secret service, is accused of working with two unidentified Russian conspirators to hack into the databases of retail chains, selling the information around the world. According to a 14-page indictment, the hackers stole credit card numbers from Heartland, a New Jersey-based company that processes payments, from the store 7-Eleven, and the supermarket chain Hannaford.

The three also targeted two other, unnamed corporations, according to the US attorney's office in New Jersey.
