CHILD SEX

Houston is a major hub for child traffickers. (Houston's hidden crime)

A 2007 study from Shared Hope International found 400 child trafficking victims being exploited in Las Vegas in a single month.

At least 100,000 children are used in prostitution every year in the United States.

The average age of entry into prostitution is 13 years old.

Lockerbie links to Franklin, Dutroux, Mossad, McKee

The Lockerbie bomb has links to:

1. Mossad

2. Iran-Contra

3. The Dutroux and Franklin child abuse scandals

4. Major Charles McKee.

According to a BBC report (BBC News Lockerbie: Conspiracy theories):

A Pan Am investigation is believed to have concluded that the Lockerbie bomb was targeted specifically to kill a small band of US Defence Intelligence Agency operatives (including Major Charles McKee) who had uncovered a drugs ring run by a CIA unit in Lebanon.

The drugs-ring is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad

Pundits Trying to Help Cheney Avoid Jail

Another interviewee was impressed by Cheney's "continuing zeal" for the positions he took while in office. Gellman describes Cheney as "urgently focused " on shaping events." Gellman also stirs up some empathy for the lion-in-winter ex-Vice President. According to Gellman, Cheney takes a morning drive to Starbucks for a decaffeinated latte (no caffeine because of his heart condition, you know) and attends the soccer and softball games of his grandchildren.

The trouble for Gellman's sympathetic portrayal is that there is far too much evidence of criminal activity on the record about his subject, though you wouldn't know that from reading the Post article.

What Cheney is "urgently focused" on right now is staying out of prison. As he sits writing his memoir in his own Eagle's Nest over his garage in a fancy Virginia suburb, Cheney is pulling out all the stops to ensure that he does not have to face the music for war crimes.

Healthcare Plan Based on Economic Fantasy

As the healthcare debate rages on, there is one reality that even the proponents of this hostile takeover of healthcare by government cannot ignore – and that is money. The government simply does not have the money for a new, expansive, public healthcare plan. The country is in a deep recession that will deepen even further with the coming collapse of the commercial real estate market. The last thing we need is for government to increase and expand taxes to pay for another damaging, wasteful program. Foreigners are becoming less enthusiastic about buying our debt, and creating another open-ended welfare program when we cannot pay for what is already in place, will not help.

Utah volunteers for H1N1 Swine Flu Vac Trials

Vaccine trials: Utahns enlist in war against H1N1 Swine Flu
Hundreds of residents are needed to test the safety of a new treatment
By Andrew Maddocks
Updated: 08/14/2009 03:30:46 PM MDT
Healthy adults or parents thinking about volunteering their children ages 6 months to 9 years old should not be worried about the possibility of severe side effects, said Primary Children's Hospital Medical Director Ed Clark.
Clark and Longson say the H1N1 vaccines are believed to be no more dangerous than seasonal flu vaccines, which have been tested annually since 1945. The expected rate of complications is the same.
"The flu vaccine has been remarkably safe over the decades," Clark said.

Polio surge in Nigeria after vaccine virus mutates

Polio, the dreaded paralyzing disease stamped out in the industrialized world, is spreading in Nigeria. And health officials say in some cases, it's caused by the vaccine used to fight it.

In July, the World Health Organization issued a warning that this vaccine-spread virus might extend beyond Africa. So far, 124 Nigerian children have been paralyzed this year — about twice those afflicted in 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They have known that this vaccine had problems since 2005, and this poison wasn't taken off the market immediately?!?!?

And why?!?!?

Drug company profits, pure and simple. It's always about the money, and rarely about the health of the people being vaccinated.

Obama denounces emphasis on health care protests

President Barack Obama on Friday denounced what he suggested was news media overemphasis on scenes of angry protesters at town-hall meetings on health care. "TV loves a ruckus," Obama said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to President Obama and Congress: the anger thinking Americans are feeling right now is deep, palpable, and growing by the day.

The health care issue, Ladies and Gentlemen, are just the tip of the iceberg.

Americans are angry at a government which has taxed them to death, with taxpayers having nothing to show for it, the government's colossal borrowing to pay for the wars without end, and the reality that the only entities represented are the large corporations for whom congressional representatives are merely "acquisitions, through overt and covert campaign support.

They understand that we are well and truly in a new phase of "taxation without representation".

People protesting about the government have absolutely legitimate gripes, and should never be characterized as "Un-American"; they are well and truly exercising their First Amendment Right, as guaranteed under the Bill of Rights and Constitution of the United States.

One would hope that this administration would never characterize the Constitution and Bill of Rights "Un-American"; but given their behavior of late, one has to wonder.

Flashback: Obama/Daschle's Health Care Crime in Stimulus Bill

Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey
Feb. 9 (Bloomberg)
Tragically, no one from either party is objecting to the health provisions slipped in without discussion. These provisions reflect the handiwork of Tom Daschle, until recently the nominee to head the Health and Human Services Department.
The stimulus bill does that, and calls it the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research (190-192). The goal, Daschle’s book explained, is to slow the development and use of new medications and technologies because they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for being more willing to accept “hopeless diagnoses” and “forgo experimental treatments,” and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system.

The Siegels Win Back Pieces of Krypton

Superman is literally chopped into pieces between the Siegels, DC Comics, and Warner Bros which will do nothing but hurt in the long run. According to Variety, the Siegels have recaptured the rights to the first two weeks of the daily Superman newspaper strips, and portions of Action Comics and Superman comics. They apparently now control all depictions of Superman's origin story, which means they now own Krypton, its fiery destruction, Jor-El and Lora, and Kal El. In 2008, the Siegels recaptured the rights to the Superman character (which includes his costume and his alter-ego of Clark Kent), Lois Lane, the Daily Planet, its gruff editor, and their love triangle. DC still owns Jimmy Olson, his ability to fly, Lex Luthor, kryptonite, and Superman's expanded powers and origins.

July foreclosures in Hawaii hit record high

Hawaii real estate foreclosure cases reached a record 990 last month as more homeowners continue to struggle with their mortgages in the weak real estate market and economy.

The number of cases in July compared with 229 a year earlier and 706 in June, according to California-based real estate research firm RealtyTrac. The previous high was 816 in May.

Foreclosures in Hawaii are growing in part because weak home sales have made avoiding foreclosure harder for people who can't sell their house or pay their mortgage.

Makena visitors: Parking outside stall may net fine

Longtime beachgoers at Makena State Park were surprised and concerned Thursday that they weren't being allowed to park in places they have been doing so for years.

Kihei resident Kirk Surry said a man, who he believed was a Department of Land and Natural Resources officer, warned him that cars were being ticketed if they were parked anywhere other than in the paved, marked spaces of the parking lots. Many beach users often park on the dirt and gravel inside and alongside the parking lots when all the spaces are full.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I've been to Makena many times, and the paved and marked parking is totally inadequate for the size of the beaches. Parking in adjacent gravel and grass areas has been the norm for years, but apparently Maui County has realized that the absence of marked parking can be turned into a profit center. No doubt an $50 a pop for a ticket, plans to expand the parking lot are now on permanent hold.

As a side note, one reason for the change in enforcement aside from profit motive may be "Little" Makena beach, an unofficial clothing optional area that is a constant target by good moral Christians (who inevitably own T-shirt and bathing suit stores). Ever since these good moral salesmen lobbied for a Hawaii law banning nude bathing the portion of our tourism that favored clothing optional beaches (estimated 12%) no longer comes to Hawaii but instead spends their money in other countries where they are less psychologically screwed up about the human body.

Toxic Loans Topping 5% May Push 150 Banks to Point of No Return

More than 150 publicly traded U.S. lenders own nonperforming loans that equal 5 percent or more of their holdings, a level that former regulators say can wipe out a bank’s equity and threaten its survival.

The number of banks exceeding the threshold more than doubled in the year through June, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, as real estate and credit-card defaults surged. Almost 300 reported 3 percent or more of their loans were nonperforming, a term for commercial and consumer debt that has stopped collecting interest or will no longer be paid in full.

Wag The Dog, Again

Israeli media reports that visiting National Security Adviser General Jim Jones and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates have told the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop complaining about Iran because the US is preparing to take action "in eight weeks" demonstrate that even when everything changes in Washington, nothing changes. President Barack Obama has claimed that a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a high priority but the Israelis and their allies in congress and the media have been able to stonewall the issue. Israel has made no concessions on its settlement policy, which is rightly seen as the single biggest obstacle to eventual creation of a Palestinian state, and has instead pushed ahead with new building and confiscations of Arab homes.

Gates: It's A "Mystery" How Long US Forces Will Be In Afghanistan

"In the intelligence business, we always used to categorize information in two ways, secrets and mysteries," Gates, a former CIA director, told a Pentagon news conference.

He added: "Mysteries were those where there were too many variables to predict. And I think that how long U.S. forces will be in Afghanistan is in that area."

He said his top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, is free to ask for whatever he needs, but Gates said when the general submits a revised war plan in the coming weeks it will not contain a request to expand the U.S. fighting force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are no "mysteries" that an honest assessment of the situation cannot uncover.

And to describe the actual continued length of the American occupation of Afghanistan as a "mystery" is completely unacceptable to We the People.

The leadership in the Pentagon and civilian leadership knew several things before going in 8 years ago, as lessons allegedly learned from previous military misadventures:

1. You cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air.
2. You cannot go in to a region like Afghanistan without a huge commitment of troops to actually occupy the country. The old Soviet Union failed in this with 500,000 pairs of boots on the ground.
3. You cannot set up a corrupt puppet government which appears to support US drone strikes indiscriminately killing civilians without radicalizing those left standing further against that government and the US.

And yet, this is precisely the outcome we have had in Afghanistan. The pipelines to control the oil (and about which we were actually negotiating with the Taliban in August of 2001) still cannot be put in place because of the volatility in the country.

Apparently, the Bush administration thought that a war of occupation would be "cheaper" than what the Taliban was asking for the deal.

Tell that to all the families and friends of people who have died, or been wounded physically and mentally to the point where they will never be able to function again in this conflict.

Police and media outlets in Florida are hysterically characterizing the placement of Obama Joker posters as some kind of assault on the people of Clermont, creating “victims” and leading to demands for arrests and criminal charges, a shocking indictment of the state of free speech and the evisceration of the first amendment in America.

New York Times Doesn't Read Its Own Healthcare Horror Articles

The first paragraph is an incredible example of audacity and cluelessness:

The stubborn yet false rumor that President Obama’s health care proposals would create government-sponsored “death panels” to decide which patients were worthy of living seemed to arise from nowhere in recent weeks.

Duh! Out of nowhere?

NYT Magazine just weeks ago ran an article by Peter Singer,Why We Must Ration Health Care.

RBS uber-bear issues fresh alert on global stock markets

Britain's Uber-bear is growling again. After predicting a torrid "relief rally" over the early summer, Bob Janjuah at Royal Bank of Scotland is advising clients to take profits in global equity and commodity markets and prepare for another storm as winter nears.

We are now in the middle of a parabolic spike up," he said in his latest confidential note to clients.

"I expect this risk rally to continue into – and maybe through – a large part of August. What happens after that? The next ugly leg of the bear market begins as we get into the July through September 'tipping zone', driven by the failure of the data to validate the V (shaped recovery) that is now fully priced into markets."

Israel begins sell-off of refugees’ land

According to international law, Israel holds the property of more than four million Palestinian refugees in custodianship, until a final peace deal determines whether some or all of them will be allowed back to their 400-plus destroyed Palestinian villages or are compensated for their loss.

But last week, in a violation of international law and the refugees’ property rights that went unnoticed both inside Israel and abroad, Binyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, forced through a revolutionary land reform.

The new law begins a process of creeping privatization of much of Israel’s developed land, including refugee property, said Oren Yiftachel, a geographer at Ben Gurion University in Beersheva.

Report: Six health care lobbyists for every member of Congress

It seems everyone wants their opinions on health care reform to be heard, judging by the crowds of people attending town hall forums across the country, but will the investment of money and manpower that lobbying firms are devoting to making themselves heard by Congress drown out the general public?

For every lawmaker on Capitol Hill, there are about six lobbyists pushing their health care priorities, according to a Bloomberg News investigation published today. That’s about 3,300 registered health care lobbyists working Congress, clamoring for face time with each of 100 senators and 435 Representatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the insurance companies and Big Pharma have already won this battle, with the American people as the losers here.

The Smell of Defeat

On the other hand, in Iraq, a senior American military advisor adopted the view that it is high time for America to “declare” victory and immediately leave. Not only that, but he also revealed the tense relationship between Iraqi and American officers after the U.S. withdrawal from Iraqi cities on June 30. The American advisor believes that U.S. troops have by now become guests in Iraq, and they will have to leave soon because their presence is unjustifiable and it is not going to improve the performance of Iraqis.

THE BIG BANG MEANS ...

But for the hard core true believers, the men and women so scared of the US Government that they will not even allow the merest hint of doubt or question to enter their minds, lest their souls be eternally damned, the ones so wrapped in the flag that all the blood to their brains has been cut off, I will tell you what another big "bang" inside the US is likely to mean to them.

A big "bang" means Homeland Security is a total failure.

"Grab some clothes and get into the van, now."

For an instant, that directive, and the tone in which it was issued, had the opposite of its intended effect: Korrin and our five older children, momentarily paralyzed by shock, looked at me in alarm. There was something in both the tone of my voice, and the expression on my face, that was new and a little frightening. None of them had seen my "game face" before. They were seeing it now.

Just seconds earlier, Korrin and I had been confronted on our doorstep by two very nice, well-dressed women who informed us that an anonymous "child endangerment" complaint had been filed with the Child Protective Services.

Obama camp plants "FAKE" doctor at Town Hall meeting on Health Care!!!!

excerpt:
..."I’m not sure why, but something didn’t smell right. So my colleagues and I did a little digging, and wouldn’t you know it? Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor.

But she is an Obama campaign volunteer.

Our own David Jennings secured a phone interview, in which Mayer admitted to impersonating a physician, saying — get this — she thought it would help her credibility. (It didn’t.)

Now here’s where it spins off into a whole new dimension of weird. See the bug-eyed woman seated behind not-doctor Mayer?..."

Obama on Drugs: 98% Cheney?

Eighty billion dollars of WHAT?

I searched all over the newspapers and TV transcripts and no one asked the President what is probably the most important question of what passes for debate on the issue of health care reform: $80 billion of WHAT?

On June 22, President Obama said he'd reached agreement with big drug companies to cut the price of medicine by $80 billion. He extended his gratitude to Big Pharma for the deal that would, "reduce the punishing inflation in health care costs."

Hey, in my neighborhood, people think $80 billion is a lot of money. But is it?

Hypocrisy, Hyperbole, and the Death of the Democratic Party

Congressman: Obama Could Use Pandemic To Declare Martial Law

Georgia Congressman Paul Broun warned attendees of a town hall event Tuesday that the Obama administration was planning to use a pandemic or a natural disaster to implement martial law in the United States.

Speaking at the North Georgia Technical College auditorium, Broun said that the “socialistic elite,” as well as Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, were planning to exploit a crisis to create a favorable climate for their stalling political agenda.

“They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” he said. “We’ve seen that historically.”

What Happens In Palestine:Babies,Bodies & Bombs

Some of the following pictures are extremely graphic and I suggest those who do not feel comfortable at the sight of blood,dead bodies etc not read this post.
All the pictures are from events which have taken place in: Jenin,Gaza,Bethlehem,Nablus etc

I do believe that every American citizen should have a look,especially those who are Pro-Israel.

If you cannot even stand to see the plight of these people and what your money does to them,how can you stand paying for it?

Remember Gary Webb?

The Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist documented how CIA-connected drug runners helped usher in the crack cocaine epidemic in The San Jose Mercury News.

Read the series here. Webb discusses his work in this video.

For his trouble, meaning good reporting, Corporate McPravda , led by the L.A. Times and New York Times, raked him over the coals.

Telling the truth cost Webb dearly. He lost his career, family and life.
