Holder: Homegrown Terror Threat Increasing

Attorney General Eric Holder told ABC News in an exclusive interview today that he is increasingly concerned about Americans becoming radicalized and turning to terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: The US Government knows it has pushed the people to the brink of revolution.

Why Obama's peace process is still going nowhere

The problem was never a lack of American engagement, but what kind. The Bush administration helped arm and train Palestinian militias opposed to Hamas and vetoed a Palestinian "national unity government." It supported the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip and politicized financial aid to bolster Palestinian leaders whose legitimacy, as they have effectively become Israeli quislings, has all but vanished.

Absolutely none of this has changed under the Obama administration. Despite lip service about easing it, the United States continues to support Israel's criminal blockade of the Gaza Strip, and like the Bush administration, Obama has never criticized Israel's attack on Gaza despite incontestable evidence of atrocities and war crimes.

As Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb described it: “The fact that the vast majority of people in the crowd at the Castro Theatre would not let the Voice of Israel representative speak his mind without interruption reflects growing frustration with the use of pubic slander, character assassination, cancellation of speakers, firing of faculty and demand for resignations by the so-called defenders of Israel. Since when are people with views that differ from AIPAC, for instance, invited into mainstream circles to speak for five minutes before a pro-Israel speech or film? The representative of Voice of Israel was not there to dialogue. Only to chastise. The crowd refused to be chastised.

Homegrown terror top priority for Obama Administration

Eric Holder stated that he believes that homegrown terror is becoming an increasing threat in the United States. He said in an interview with ABC news, “The American people would be surprised by the depth of the threat, but also reassured to see the assets that have been deployed around the world.”

In the interview Holder alludes to American citizens being trained by terrorist cells over seas to return home and carry out violence against their own country.

What is troubling about this heightened attention towards homegrown terror is that in recent months the Liberty movement has suffered the experience of being profiled as a potential threat by law enforcement, so one has to wonder if the nation’s top cop is poised for an overreaction.

U.S. Adviser’s Blunt Memo on Iraq: Time ‘to Go Home’

A senior American military adviser in Baghdad has concluded in an unusually blunt memo that the Iraqi forces suffer from deeply entrenched deficiencies but are now capable of protecting the Iraqi government, and that it is time “for the U.S. to declare victory and go home.”

2 Ga. officers suspended for investigating Obama

That investigation was prompted after the Secret Service contacted the county telling them that someone had accessed two police databases on July 20 around 4:40 a.m. to perform a background check on the president.
Edwards said that the Secret Service is leaving the investigation up to the county.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, all the databases are being watched as well.

Everybody watching everybody.

No wonder we can't get any work done!

And why is Obama so nervous about his background being checked? I thought we all had to tolerate this kind of intrusion to save us all from Osama whatsisname!

Webmaster's Commentary:

Madoff gives feeder fund managers' names to lawyer

A San Francisco attorney who interviewed imprisoned swindler Bernard Madoff in a federal prison this week said on Wednesday he plans to amend a lawsuit to include possibly several fund managers who funneled investor money to Madoff's $65 billion Ponzi scheme.

Joseph Cotchett obtained the lengthy interview with Madoff, 71, after suing the former Nasdaq commissioner's wife, Ruth, his sons and brother, along with other parties, on behalf of duped investors in Wall Street's biggest investment fraud.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to see those names of Bernie's enablers!

Hawaii gamblers facing taxing situation

Hawaii's new gambling tax law is being called "ridiculous" by its critics.

Under the law, island residents can no longer offset their winnings with their losses. Essentially, they'll pay tax on every winning hand, even if they end up losing.

Under the old law, gamblers were taxed on net winnings, which are calculated by subtracting losses from winnings.

But a bill signed into law recently by Republican Gov. Linda Lingle mandates all winnings are to be considered for tax purposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last thing you do during hard economic times is raise taxes. That just accelerates the decline and the really hard core gamblers will simply move to Nevada permanently.

The mindset betrayed by Linda's recent decisions is appalling. She is totally unconcerned with getting more money to the people of Hawaii and only focused on getting more money FROM the people of Hawaii.

You dare to call me a terrorist,while you look down your guns?

“A state which forcibly subjugates a people to colonial or alien domination is committing an unlawful act as defined by international law, and the subject people, in the exercise of its inherent right of self-defense, may fight to defend and attain its right to self-determination.“
[UN Charter art. 51]

Self Defense,scorned and unsavory,has been left helpless against international charges of terrorism,hate and insurrection.
Yet we see that resistance,in the history of many nations, against a foreign force which violates a country’s sovereignty has always been a moral obligation and right inextricably related to the human right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

"So", he said, "they have you working the drive-thru I see. Is that a step up or a step down?"

"It's not the drive-thru," I replied, "it's a new system they've installed called Manna. It manages the store."

"How so?"

"It tells me what to do through the headset."

"Who, the manager?"

"No, it's a computer."

He looked at me for a long time, "A computer is telling you what to do on the job? What does the manager do?"

"The computer is the manager. Manna, manager, get it?"

"You mean that a computer is telling you what to do all day?", he asked.

CENSORSHIP~Amazon Sued By Israel

Just last week I wrote about a new law HERE which could be adopted in Europe that would make it illegal to imply that Israel could have been involved in 9-11, or any other theories involving Israel or Zionism. Moreover, this law would also make it illegal to criticize "Zionism" itself! And now we see today they are suing Amazon online for selling books that Israel does not like. This lawsuit, if successful, will impact European book sales including books in the UK. Look out America, you're next!

As soon as I arrived home I felt a great relief, if that is the right word. I have been unable to return to Gaza before because of Israel’s winter invasion and the ongoing siege. I am not sure that the word relief summarizes my intense and conflicting emotions. Mixed feelings of relief, happiness, but also disorientation continued to overwhelm me. Gaza my beautiful home, yes my beautiful home, my beautiful people, who are trying so hard to live. To continue from one day to another. Despite the odds, the hardships, the deaf ears of the world.

Military to Deploy on U.S. Soil to "Assist" with Pandemic Outbreak

CNN is reporting this evening that the U.S. military is gearing up to get involved in the H1N1 swine flu outbreak widely expected to strike the U.S. this fall. As CNN reports, "The U.S. military wants to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials." (http://edition.cnn.com/2009/US/07/2...)

When it comes to the U.S. military, the word "assist," of course, could mean almost anything. Typically, the U.S. military offers assistance at the end of a rifle. This "assistance" could mean assisting with quarantines, assisting with rounding up infected people or assisting with arresting and imprisoning people who resist vaccine shots.

Jul 30 09:02


Too often we see one nation conquer another one just because ‘they can’. We see these crimes committed both by the United States and Israel almost on a daily basis. Both of these countries believe that they are the superior nations, both morally and spiritually.

Israel goes as far as referring to themselves as ‘God’s Chosen People’. This, they believe gives them the right to do whatever is in their power to destroy other nations and cultures under the guise of ’security’. Along with their belief system comes the attitude that no nation, other than themselves, has a viable history….. which allows them to destroy even furthur.

Ariz. lawmakers consider selling Capitol buildings

Desperate for cash, Arizona state lawmakers are considering selling the House and Senate buildings, then leasing them back over several years before assuming ownership again.

Dozens of other state buildings may also be sold off and leased back as the state grapples with a huge budget deficit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hold on there; the government does not own those buildings, the people do! and this sell lease-back proposal is just a fancy shuffle to cover more government borrowing, which is how we all got into this mess in the first place!

Settlers undermining legitimacy of Israel's existence

The representatives of the settler organizations have recently declared their intention to establish 11 new settlements in the territories, including some, according to media reports, on privately-owned Palestinian land. The operation is being depicted as having been inspired by the 11 tower and stockade communities in the northern Negev that were established just before Yom Kippur in 1946. This is not the first time the settlers have compared their efforts to the settlement activities that provided the foundation for the establishment of the state. There is no basis for such a comparison, which is nothing more than an act of forgery and fraud.

Obama slammed as 'racist' at Jerusalem rally

"Obama beware. This insolence will bring about the downfall of the American leadership. Anyone who dares give an order to prevent Israeli life in Jerusalem or anywhere else in the land of Israel is destined to fall," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That sounds like an actual threat on the President to me.

It is time to cut off sending America's taxpayer money to Israel.

One of the founding principles of this nation is that the government rules with the consent of the governed and We The People do NOT consent to have any more of our money sent to such an ungrateful and disrespectful nation.

So, will President Obama be a man and stop sending billions to Israel, or will he be an obedient schmuck and continue to sign the checks?

Why Obama should make George W. Bush his Mideast envoy.

It's a full-court press on the Israelis, and the American wish list is long. They want Israel to stop expanding settlements; to stop building Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem; and for hawks in the government to chill out while the U.S. is negotiating with Iran. And yet, odds are, they'll come back to Washington empty-handed, for reasons having to do as much with atmospherics as policy: Team Obama just doesn't have Israel's full trust.

But there is someone who does—someone who could use a job, someone who argued straightforwardly for a Palestinian state, and yet someone who has the implicit admiration and regard of Israel. President Obama needs a new envoy to the region who can get results—and George W. Bush is his man.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are these people out of their minds? Bush got along with Israel because he simply gave them whatever they wanted, including thousands of American lives to smash up Iraq and full protection on 9-11.

If Bush makes the same requests of Israel as Obama is, Israel will treat him just as disdainfully.

It’s Crunch Time for Israel on Iran

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bolton is out there selling a new war on Iran, using the same old tired lies they used to sell the war in Iraq; that somehow Iran, which doesn't actually have a nuclear weapon, and isn't actually making one, is still a threat to the United States, which has thousands of nuclear weapons, and to Israel, which has hundreds.

I wonder if Mr. Bolton will put himself or his own children on the front lines.

Pro-Israel lobby probe linked to anti-Semitism

A long-running FBI espionage probe of the pro-Israel lobby in Washington appears to have been motivated in part by anti-Semitism, says a former Pentagon official who revealed this week he had cooperated for 10 weeks with federal agents conducting the probe.

Larry Franklin, a former Pentagon analyst who pleaded guilty in 2005 to revealing classified information to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), made the charge in an interview with The Washington Times, his first conversation with an American newspaper since his arrest five years ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yeah, like the FBI would have no reason at all to investigate spies if they didn't just hate the Jews so much!

KSA rejects Israel recognition before end to occuption

Regional powerhouse Saudi Arabia on Wednesday rebuffed US calls for diplomatic overtures toward Israel and said the Jewish state’s settlement expansion is jeopardising efforts to revive peace talks.

“It is Israel that has to move seriously towards the peace process,” Saudi foreign ministry spokesman Osama Nugali said. “As we all know, Israel is continuing to take unilateral measures by changing the geographic and demographic facts on the ground, by building settlements and expanding the existing ones,” he told AFP. Nugali said Israeli settlement expansion on occupied Arab land continues to impede any progress toward a lasting two-state solution between the Palestinians and Israelis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sixty years of bloodshed comes down to a simple hypocrisy.

The UN partition plan created two states, Israel and Palestine. David Ben Gurion rejected the UN plan and simply declared Israel to be in existence. The United States instantly recognized the new nation, whereupon Israel refused to recognize Palestine. It is at that point, the point where Israel refused to grant to Palestine that which Israel claimed for itself; a right to exist, that the other nations in the region refused to recognize Israel.

Peace and recognition of Israel has been offered many times by the Arab nations in exchange for just one thing; a state for the Palestinians. But Israel's fatal flaw is that it cannot see any points of view but its own.

And so the impasse will continue and we all (as a former French ambassador put it) stand at the brink of world war because of that shitty little state.

Iran: Israel must shed nuclear arms

Iran's foreign ministry has said the United States should concentrate on getting Israel to dismantle its nuclear arsenal, instead of criticising Tehran's nuclear programme.

The comments came after Hillary Clinton last week said the US would arm its allies in the Gulf region if Iran built a nuclear weapon.

"There is no need for the US to provide a defence umbrella for the neighbouring countries," Hassan Qashqavi, a foreign ministry spokesman, said on Monday.

"It is enough to tell its ally, the Zionist regime and convince it for the issue of disarmament and dismantle its own 200 nuclear warheads from the occupied territories.

WSJ Let’s Break up the Fed

The Obama administration’s plan to increase the powers of the Federal Reserve, says one critic, is like giving a teenager “a bigger, faster car right after he crashed the family station wagon.” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner disagrees. He argues that the Fed is “best positioned” to oversee key financial companies, and that the Obama plan would give the Fed only “modest additional authority.”

Mr. Geithner is right about one thing: The Fed’s power is already vast.But it wasn’t even well-positioned to supervise the likes of Citicorp. Broadening the Fed’s responsibilities won’t help. Instead, we should think of how best to dismantle an overextended Fed.

What will you do when you are not allowed into the workplace without the vaccine paperwork? Buy groceries? Go to the bank? Shop anywhere?? Get on a plane, bus or train? Use the toilet in the mall? Nope. Police officers will become loathed, feared, despised and remembered for their “official” duties.

America the Great ... Police State

But what was most alarming was the plain fact that neither the president nor a “stupid” local policeman seemed to understand the rules of behavior in a new America, where we find ourselves marooned as well as guarded (is that the verb?) by armed police who have been instructed that they are indeed, once armed, the law and may not be criticized verbally or in any other way and are certainly not subject to any restrictions as to whom they arrest or otherwise torment.

The accuracy of summer forecasts lags way behind that of winter forecasts because less research has gone into them. That is why the Met Office is more confident of its early prediction that this winter will be mild and warmer than last winter, although fairly wet. It says that it is 66 per cent certain that this will be the case — a fairly confident forecast.

I'll bet they're wrong with this forecast too.

Israel has authorised a one-off shipment of hundreds of tonnes of cement and building materials to the heavily embargoed Gaza Strip. It is the first official transfer of such goods since Israel's operation early this year in the coastal enclave. Many Gazan buildings damaged during the offensive have not been rebuilt because of a shortage of building materials.

Gaza has been under a strict Israeli blockade since Hamas seized control in June 2007. Some basic foodstuff and medicine are allowed in. Other items including cement, steel piping, fertilisers and cars are banned, and many others are restricted.

Obamas' Plan: Take healthcare from elderly, give free to illegals

The Greatest Transfer from the Greatest Generation

The bulk of this rationing will fall on the elderly. We’ll have to revisit the idea that the elderly have, in the words of former Colorado Gov. Dick Lamm, “a duty to die. ”Let’s see if this can be refined down to a more succinct point. Obama care is a massive transfer of health care services from the elderly, who have spent their lives building the economy, to illegal immigrants who have come to this nation in violation of its laws. Essentially, grandma and grandpa are going to have deal with less medical access so that illegals can have more.That is what spreading the wealth means in the Obamanation.

Even before the troops arrived, there was not much left: a mound of broken mud-brick buildings and archaeological fragments in a fertile plain between the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers.

But they did turn it into Camp Alpha, a military base, shortly after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Their 18-month stay there caused "major damage" and represented a "grave encroachment on this internationally known archeological site," a report released this month in Paris by the United Nations' cultural agency, UNESCO, says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the great crimes committed against the people of Iraq was the looting of the Baghdad Museum and the destruction of many important ancient sites inside Iraq.

I think that destruction of ancient sites is deliberate policy.

Egypt is literally littered with the ruins of the ancient temples and palaces of her rulers. As much as has been found, it is estimated that only 1/3 of Egypt's archeological wonders have been uncovered. A newly discovered temple was uncovered while digging a sewer line, and a cache of finely preserved mummies was literally stumbled over by a cow in a pasture.

Iraq's ancient heritage was enshrined in its ancient sites and museum. As a result of the war, many of those sites have been damaged or destroyed. Part of the ancient city or Ur now lies underneath a US air base runway. Nebuchadnezzar's palace now lies underneath a US-built parking lot. The treasures of the museum have only partly been recovered. The treasures from the looted archaeological sites have been scattered to the world.

All of this wealth of archaeological treasures must of course annoy Israel. We are raised from birth with Old Testament tales of the greatness of the ancient Israelites, of the powerful kingdoms of Solomon and David and the first temple. Yet Israel, while rich in antiquities, is almost totally devoid of artifacts from this supposedly glorious time in her history. The existence of the fabled First Temple was supported with just two artifacts, a carved staff ornament in the shape of a pomegranate and the Jehoash tablet. Both of these artifacts have been exposed as frauds. We are told that once there was a magnificent temple on that hill, but it "all went away."

The wonders emerging from the soil of Egypt, Iraq, and Iran serve as a constant reminder that ancient buildings of such a scale as we are told the First Temple was simply do not vanish without a trace.
There is considerable reason to suspect that the tales told in the Old Testament are just that; tales. The Bible is not science, it is the collected stories of a primitive tribal people telling each other how important they are. And like fishermen talking about the one that got away, or Ramses with his temple carvings of the did-not-really-happen victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, the writers of the ancient testaments assumed that the people they were telling stories to had no way to verify the claims for themselves. So "embellishment" was a low-risk activity.

We do know from the available archaeological evidence that the Exodus probably actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Israelites. We know that the story of Moses is suspect because no Egyptian princess would hide a Hebrew child inside Pharaoh's household, then give the kid a Hebrew name ("Moses" is actually an Egyptian title meaning "Prince" and is included in the names of many Pharaoh's names such as Tut-Moses, Ah-Moses, Ra-Moses (Ramses) etc.)
Likewise, the story of Masada may be less than accurate. The remains found on the mountain were buried with pig bones, something no proper Jewish funeral would tolerate, which suggests that the bodies found and venerated as heroes of ancient Judea were actually those of dead Romans, for whom burial often involved animals as gifts to the spirit of the dead.

But a good story is a good story and the writers of the ancient texts were probably not thinking much further into the future than the guys who pen the "Celebrity dates space alien" stories you see at supermarket checkout lines. The fact that the celebrity is a real person does not prove the space alien exists. It's just a story.
Given enough time, even a simple story written in jest can take on a life of its own. Scientology began as a bet between two science fiction writers; look how wide spread that has become in just a short time.

But, over time, entire religions with attendant wealth and power structures have been built on the premise that these old testament stories really happened exactly as written. And today, here in the 21st century world, science has started to catch up with these ancient legends and call many of them into doubt.

So, for a nation that justifies its existence on the writings of the Torah, the plethora of sites and artifacts confirming the ancient histories of Egypt, Iraq, Iran, etc. etc. etc. must seem a dire political threat for a nation whose own ancient history seems to have left little if any traces at all.

In that context, the strange behavior of the US military which posted guards around the Iraq oil ministry while bulldozing Iraq's archaeological sites starts to make sense, if the supporters of a very insecure nation decide that leveling the archaeological playing field is preferable to allowing the obvious disparity in artifacts to remain visible to the world.

FLASHBACK - Rule by fear or rule by law?

Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees.

According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists."

Even Bernanke Admits this Could be Worse than the Great Depression

Ben Bernanke said 3 days ago:

A lot of things happened, a lot came together, [and] created probably the worst financial crisis, certainly since the Great Depression and possibly even including the Great Depression.

Folks, after trillions and trillions of YOUR tax dollars poured onto Wall Street, Bernanke has just admitted what I have been telling you for months;

If, as appears to be the case, our elections are routinely being rigged, then it cannot be argued that We The People either chose, or approved of, those officials who borrowed trillions of dollars without our permission and sought to enslave us to that debt.

In an atmosphere of doubt about the validity of the voting process, it cannot be assumed that the American people have actually voted for or approved of any of the government's actions and policies for the last 35 years. That includes a couple of wars and some $14 trillion in debt, and the $60,000 in interest payments alone each taxpayer has had to fork over since the 60s.

Let us imagine for a moment that you live in a nation, and you request some benefits. The government tells you the cost is $500 for the benefits, and you pay $500 in taxes for the benefits. You get your benefits. No problems. Well worth the money you paid for them. No complaints.

FLASHBACK - The United States Is In Deep Doodoo!

The following article was first written in 1998. I am relinking it here not so much as to say "I told you so", but to point out that the long term economic future of the United States was obvious, or should have been obvious, to the people who are awarded lofty degrees and paid huge salaries to comprehend such things. Instead, the economists persisted in explaining away the visible signs of gathering troubles and earned their salaries by justifying why the policies that robbed the poor to give to the rich should continue unabated.

6/25/09 Letter from Leonard Peltier

I am but a common man, I am not a speaker but I have spoken. I am not all that tall but I have stood up. I am not a philosopher or poet or a singer or any of those things that particularly inspire people but the one thing that I am is the evidence that this country lied when they said there was justice for all. I am the evidence that they lied when they extradited me from Canada. I am the evidence that they can lie at your trial, they can manufacture evidence at your trial, they can intimidate witnesses at your trial, they can have back room conversations and agreements with the judge at your trial. I am the evidence that the attitude, the powers that be still hold us in a grip.

Left-Wing Website With Direct Ties To White House Smears Alex Jones

As the establishment intensifies its efforts to demonize its political adversaries as extremists and terrorists, an George Soros-funded left-wing website with direct ties to the Obama White House has parroted the months-old debunked smear that Pittsburgh cop killer Richard Poplawski was an Alex Jones fan.

Think Progress claims that it is a “nonpartisan organization,” and yet it’s bankrolled by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a think tank headed by Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff John D. Podesta (pictured top), who was also head of Barack Obama’s presidential transition team after the 2008 election.

At a Border Crossing, Security Trumps Openness

Four years ago, when the federal General Services Administration unveiled its plans for a new border-crossing station here in northeastern New York State, the design was presented as part of the agency’s campaign to raise the dismal standards of government architecture. Even many in the famously fractious architectural community celebrated the complex — particularly its main building, emblazoned with glossy yellow, 21-foot-high letters spelling “United States” — as a rare project the government could point to with pride.

Yet three weeks ago, less than a month after the station opened, workers began prying the big yellow letters off the building’s facade on orders from Customs and Border Protection. The plan is to dismantle the rest of the sign this week.

It didn’t take long at all for the ‘truth’ to come out regarding the criminal rabbis in the United States. It’s obviously just another case of FBI inspired anti-Semitism! That ‘charge’ does not even come from Foxman… it comes directly from the so-called ultra orthodox community in Israel…. the ones that are actually benefiting from the criminal activities involving organ sales and money laundering.
