Hardened Vet Troops to patrol Chicago, No Guns allowed city?

Lawmakers Call for Troops on the Streets of Chicago
Kurt Nimmo
April 26, 2010
“As we speak, National Guard members are working side-by-side with our troops to fight a war halfway around the world,” Fritchey said in a Sunday release. “The unfortunate reality is that we have another war that is just as deadly taking place right in our back yard. Is this a drastic call to action? Of course it is. But is it warranted when we are losing residents to gun violence at such an alarming rate? Without question.”
"Fritchey said guard members have been trained in civil law enforcement as part of their nation-building assignments in Iraq and Afghanistan."
It is illegal to own a handgun in Chicago.

Israel’s big and small apartheids: the meaning of a Jewish state

Jonathan Cook analyses the pillars that prop up Israeli apartheid in pre- and post-1967 Palestine, from the unique and racist nature of Israeli citizenship law, to Jewish control of land, to defining Israeli Arabs as a security threat.

In a talk delivered to the fifth Bilin international conference for Palestinian popular resistance, held in the West Bank village of Bilin on 21 April, he argues that the fight against Israeli apartheid wherever it is found – in Jaffa or Jerusalem, in Nazareth or Nablus, in Beersheva or Bilin – is integral to the struggle for justice for the Palestinians.

Syria’s scuds, “Israel’s” security and one big smokescreen

In the self-sensationalising world of modern media, some truths are better witnessed than told. Over the past fortnight, major media outlets have converged on Syria’s alleged delivery of scud missiles to the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah. By examining how the story first came to limelight, as well as the manner in which media sources have uncritically covered the story, one can begin to notice the vastly degenerated state of today’s media and its deeply polarising effects.

Chinese report documents human rights disaster in the United States

The United States is the only country in the world that claims to be superior in every aspect, especially in human rights, and that lie is again exposed, this time by a report from China on the United States, all from US sources. The US is in fact a backward cesspool, the most backward country in the industrialized world.

Can the US beat Israel at their game?

Americans can now see the light at the end of a long dark tunnel—if only they will look.

We entered this tunnel in 1948 when an enclave of religious fanatics induced President Harry Truman to portray them as a “state” meriting recognition, aid and protection.

We were warned not to do so.

These extremists had just inflicted on the Palestinians an ethnic cleansing that rivaled in its savagery the fascist abuse of ethnic groups during WWII. In December 1948, Albert Einstein and 27 other concerned Jews urged us “not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.”

Our failure to heed that warning led to the current morass in which we find ourselves.

Obama needs your support

Forget your opinion of Barack Obama. Love him or loathe him, the reality remains unchanged: we have but one president at a time. And but one commander-in-chief.

U.S. national security is endangered—perhaps now more than at any time in history. Both the president and our military leaders are bound by an oath to defend this nation from all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Recent events suggest that, in cooperation with senior military officers, President Obama is battling a cunning and committed adversary. To prevail, he needs public support.

Be clear on this point: we were deceived to wage war in Iraq on fabricated intelligence. Only one nation had the means, motive, opportunity and stable nation state intelligence to succeed with such an operation inside the U.S.

33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True, What Every Person Should Know

Conspiracy theory is a term that originally was a neutral descriptor for any claim of civil, criminal or political conspiracy. However, it has come almost exclusively to refer to any fringe theory which explains a historical or current event as the result of a secret plot by conspirators of almost superhuman power and cunning. To conspire means “to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or to use such means to accomplish a lawful end. “The term “conspiracy theory” is frequently used by scholars and in popular culture to identify secret military, banking, or political actions aimed at stealing power, money, or freedom, from “the people”.

1.5 million Facebook accounts offered for sale - FAQ

“On Feb. 10, 2010, (cybercriminal) stated that he or she is selling 1.5 million compromised Facebook accounts, in bulk quantities, belonging to users in various countries. The price per 1,000 accounts varies based upon the number of friends and contacts that each account possesses. For a purchase of compromised accounts containing 10 contacts or fewer, a buyer must pay $25 per 1,000 accounts. A purchase of compromised accounts containing 10 or more contacts requires a buyer to pay $45 per 1,000 accounts. Accounts containing zero contacts are also available for bulk purchasing from (cybercriminal), at the cost of $15 per 1,000 accounts. The prices of these accounts are presumably in USD or the equivalent amount in some form of electronic currency.”

Mexicans Riot in Wake of Arizona Immigration Crackdown

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want you to watch this video very carefully, because it clearly shows violent rioting taking place inside the United States. This puts Obama in a very awkward position because if he proceeds to try to undermine the Arizona immigrant law, it will send a clear message to all Americans that rioting is the way to get what they want. We will see riots against high taxes, riots against Wall Street criminals and bailouts, riots against the wars, riots against politicians sending our money to Israel, etc. I do not think that is a message Obama wants to put out there, but that is the message that will be received if the law is rescinded at this point.

Israel’s ‘guardian,’ Sen. Schumer says Gazans are suffering but they deserve it

Ben Smith picks up a disturbing radio interview of Chuck Schumer by Nachum Segal, who is apparently to the right of Schumer and of course has influence, in which Schumer repeatedly sides with Israel over Obama and says the collective punishment of the Palestinian people in Gaza is tough luck. Notice Schumer's claim that all Americans share his feeling, but the contradictory statement that it's "Jewish members" of Congress who will be meeting Obama to stand up for Israel. Oh my. Amy Goodman, please run for Congress. Notice that Schumer has Obama's ear and brags of spending lots of time with Netanyahu.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seem to recall the Nazis saying that the people in those slave labor camps "deserved it."

In any event, I am tired of politicians campaigning for American votes, winning American office, being paid by American tax dollars, and then spending all their time working for Israel's interests.

This election season I have one and only one message, which I urge you to share with all your friends. America, especially now, needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third. Any politician bragging about what a good friend they are to a foreign government needs to be kicked out of office hard enough to bounce three times on the pavement!

More Global Warming Profiteering by Obama Energy Official

Surprising documents made available to this author reveal that Assistant Secretary of Energy Cathy Zoi has a huge financial stake in companies likely to profit from the Obama administration’s “green” policies.

Zoi, who left her position as CEO of the Alliance for Climate Protection — founded by Al Gore — to serve as assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy, now manages billions in “green jobs” funding. But the disclosure documents show that Zoi not only is in a position to affect the fortunes of her previous employer, ex-Vice President Al Gore, but that she herself has large holdings in two firms that could directly profit from policies proposed by the Department of Energy.

Rabbis Condemn Israel for War Crimes Committed in Gaza: Open Letter to Judge Goldstone

We are deeply saddened by the controversy around the report. We affirm your findings and believe you set up an impeccable standard that presents strong evidence that during the war in Gaza Israel engaged in war crimes that revealed a pattern of continuous and systematic assault against Palestinian people and land that has very little to do with Israel’s claim of security. Your report made clear the intentional targeting of civilian infrastructures such as hospitals, schools, agricultural properties, water and sewage treatment centers and civilians themselves with deadly weapons that are illegal when used in civilian centers.

This is the ugly truth that is so hard for many Jewish people to face. Anyone who spends a day in Palestinian territories sees this truth immediately.

And here’s the truth of the matter: the world won’t end, not in Iraq, not in Afghanistan, not in the United States, if we end our wars and withdraw. The sky won’t fall, even if the U.S. gets out reasonably quickly, even if subsequently blood is spilled and things don’t go well in either country.

American military creating an environmental disaster in Afghan countryside

The American military presence in Afghanistan consists of fleets of aircraft, helicopters, armored vehicles, weapons, equipment, troops and facilities. Since 2001, they have generated millions of kilograms of hazardous, toxic and radioactive wastes. The Kabul Press asks the simple question:

"What have the Americans done with all that waste?"

More American Expatriates Give Up Citizenship

Amid mounting frustration over taxation and banking problems, small but growing numbers of overseas Americans are taking the weighty step of renouncing their citizenship.

One Swiss-based business executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of sensitive family issues, said she weighed the decision for 10 years. She had lived abroad for years but had pleasant memories of service in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Yet the notion of double taxation — and of future tax obligations for her children, who will receive few U.S. services — finally pushed her to renounce, she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to become a growing trend, and will generate a "brain drain" of some of this country's best and brightest individuals.

Now, the government of Iran is an odious regime. Not nearly as odious as, say, the regime of America's staunch ally in the region, Saudi Arabia, of course, but odious enough. But as restrictive as it has been to its own citizens, it has not – in the last decade alone – launched and maintained massive wars of aggression and domination that have killed, by direct and collateral hand, more than a million innocent people. The bipartisan champions of liberty, justice and human rights in Washington have done that, and are doing that.

Swedish bishop quits after office bashing

The controversial Church of Sweden bishop has found himself swept up in a conflict of biblical proportions in recent months as the diocese has battled with internal strife, including accusations of threats and counter-accusations of physical assault.

The problems became so serious that Ragnar Persenius, a bishop in the diocese of Uppsala and the representative of the archbishop, had been called in to help resolve the escalating conflict and hold peace talks with those involved.

The Local reported in the beginning of February that the problems had come to a head after Thidevall signed off on sick leave following an office quarrel which ended in a bout of clerical fisticuffs and a subsequent police report for alleged assault.

US intervenes in Iraq election row as feared militia waits in wings

Fearful of growing political turmoil that would make it difficult or embarrassing to withdraw its remaining combat troops by August this year, as President Barack Obama has pledged, Washington has arranged talks about a joint government. The proposal is for Mr Maliki and Mr Allawi to split the four-year prime ministerial term, according to Dr Mahmoud Othman, who is a veteran member of the Baghdad parliament.

This weekend's threat by the anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr to send his much-feared Mehdi Army militia back onto the streets in the wake of Friday's bomb attacks has only served to underline the growing crisis in Iraq since the inconclusive general election last month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If a resolution here is not achieved, and quickly, we could well see Iraq stumble back into a violent civil war, with US unable to withdraw the majority of its troops by August of this year.

Afghans May Block NATO Offensive in Kandahar Over Civilian Deaths

An official for the Afghan government today reiterated the threat to block the NATO offensive against the major southern city of Kandahar, warning that the alliance would have to guarantee that civilians would be protected in the offensive.

Whether or not the Afghan government will have any actual say of the matter is unclear, however, and US forces seem to be stepping up attacks in the area in anticipation of the June offensive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There will be a moment when the US and NATO will have to declare victory, and come home, no matter whether any true "victory" can said to have been won (except for the drug lords, and the companies providing mercenaries and supplies).

The invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, nearly 9 years on, is no closer to achieving the goal of installing the pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil - for private profit - than it was when the war started.

At the end of the day, the West is going to have to leave, and negotiate with whatever Afghan government is left standing for the pipeline rights, just as the Bush administration was attempting to do as late as August of 2001.

Let us hope, this time, however, that the cost in blood and money from this obscene and immoral military fiasco will have taught the US government that negotiation is always a better option than war.

The Big Six banks are shorting the American Dream

To Oxley’s undying credit, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act grew out of the debacle of Enron and made it a law that CEOs and other top managers were and are responsible for the policies and actions of their companies on their watch and can’t just shrug their shoulders, saying they didn’t know what was happening. What Johnson and Kwak are really calling for are more laws on the books that can safeguard against financial abuse.

Unfortunately, we have, as they point out, former Clinton Treasury Chief Robert Rubin now getting $100 million a year to consult for Citibank and he can’t explain how the company came so incredibly close to financial collapse. Yet, when Newsweek wanted someone of note to explain all this, the job was given to, guess who, Robert Rubin. Suddenly, he found religion?

STAGE BEING SET FOR “DIRTY BOMB” FALSE FLAG

Rumors of an upcoming terror attack to be blamed on Iran are moving around the world, “backchannel chatter.” The primary suspect is Israel who is said to have a number of small “suitcase” type nuclear weapons, some primarily “dirty bombs,” possibly supplied secretly by a previous US administration. These devices are in the “40 ton” range, highly radioactive, extremely small and can be engineered to leave the signature of a primitive device. They were originally designed for use against Soviet armor and troop concentrations in Europe if a massed attack on NATO were to occur. Current conventional systems have made this type of weapon obsolete.

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable. I thought, originally, that the headline was a joke, but this is absolutely not funny, and is in fact, terrifying in its consequences, should this bill become law.

Sex scandal could cost Steven Seagal his fake badge

Here in New Orleans, one nagging question hangs over the suspended A&E series "Steven Seagal Lawman": How did a nice Hollywood action star wind up carrying a sheriff's deputy badge in the New Orleans suburbs in the first place?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Normally I would not run a story like this, but the tale of just how Seagal came to wear that badge illustrates how "things get done" inside the government structure!

Clinton, Lavrov discuss Iran nuclear tensions: Russia

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has spoken by telephone to her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov about the Iranian nuclear standoff, the Russian foreign ministry said Sunday.

The two "discussed in detail the current situation with the Iranian nuclear programme, establishing that further steps should be taken on the agreed basis, taking into account the opinions of each of the six powers," it said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Lavrov said "nyet!" to any new sanctions against Iran.

UN orders staff in Afghan city to stay indoors

The United Nations has ordered its staff in Kandahar to stay indoors, a UN official said Monday, due to the rapidly deteriorating security situation in the volatile city in southern Afghanistan.

Foreign UN staff working in Kandahar, which has been hit by a recent wave of targeted killings claimed by Taliban militants, have already been relocated to Kabul, said UN spokesman Dan McNortan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More "progress" in Afghanistan, I see.

90,000 Protest U.S. Base on Okinawa

More than 90,000 Okinawans rallied Sunday to oppose the relocation of an American air base on their island, adding to the pressure on Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama to resolve an issue that has divided Tokyo and Washington.

On Sunday, local leaders told the demonstrators that they rejected any plan that kept the air base on Okinawa. Toshio Shimabukuro, the mayor of Uruma, said he opposed the construction of the island, which he said would turn his city in “a major military site,” according to Japan’s Kyodo News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

But it is obvious that the Okinawans want the American forces off their island.

CLIMATEGATE - America's Impending Master Class Dictatorship

“Cap and Trade” is a multi-trillion dollar tax scam being foisted onto the American public without a legitimate debate or popular referendum. You might be surprised to learn that “Climate Revenues” are already included in the federal budget, starting with $79,000,000,000.00 ($79 billion) in fiscal year 2012, which begins only 20 months from now. During fiscal years 2012 through 2019, the government expects to collect $646,000,000,000.00 ($646 billion) in “Climate Revenues,” a completely new tax category. Have any of your elected traitors told you that they have enacted $646,000,000,000.00 ($646 billion) in “Climate” taxes beginning twenty months from now and continuing forever?

Mockingbird Reloaded...More scary "muslims"!

2001 South Park Episode "Super Best Friends"
South Park ran an unedited image of Muhammad in 2001 in an episode called “Super Best Friends“… and nothing happened.
In fact, the episode had been on the South Park website for viewing at any time for the past few years (they just removed it)… and nothing happened.

For 4 seasons they had that image in their opening segment for every single show… and nothing happened.

So for years on end no Muslim group, “radical” or otherwise, has threatened Matt and Trey or Comedy Central about the image of Muhammad that has been available for all to see every single day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Adam Gadahn (Adam Pearlman) , Yousef al-Khattab (Joseph Cohen) and their phony friends are replaying a virtual version of the 1970 "Peacenik (COINTELPRO) riots at Disneyland. I guess the spook boys figure we're really emotionally attached to cartoon characters.

Three Approved GMOs Linked to Organ Damage

In what is being described as the first ever and most comprehensive study of the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health, researchers have linked organ damage with consumption of Monsanto’s GM maize.

Three varieties of Monsanto’s GM corn – Mon 863, insecticide-producing Mon 810, and Roundup® herbicide-absorbing NK 603 – were approved for consumption by US, European and several other national food safety authorities. The data used for this approval, ironically, is the same data that independent researchers studied to make the organ damage link.

Galloway banned from Canada?

Opposing groups of protesters gathered outside the Federal Court in Toronto Monday as a judicial review of the order banning controversial British MP George Galloway from entering Canada got underway.

About 50 people opposed to Galloway’s ban and 30 in support of the government, gathered outside the court at the corner of Queen St. W. and University Ave.

“George Galloway represents the ugly face of terrorism,” said Meir Weinstein of the Jewish Defence League. “This isn't a free speech issue. It's illegal in Canada to raise funds for a terrorist group....

Saakashvili caught in a lie over TV hoax which led to deaths of three people

Saakashvili has previously denied any involvement or foreknowledge of the fictitious documentary depicting an invasion of Georgia by Russia, which included a report that the President himself had been killed. The documentary was aired by Imedi TV and it caused widespread panic in the country, drew international condemnation for using clips of various figureheads which were over-dubbed with false transcripts in Georgian.

The airing of the documentary also contributed to the deaths of three people.

Islamic Fascism In America: The Silencing Of South Park

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, aka Mark Twain, once wrote; “Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense,” and, “True irreverence is disrespect for another man’s god.” These statements represents some of the key principles of a free society. The acts of criticizing, satirizing, and mocking are part of process that removes pomp and circumstance from an issue, allowing us to see more clearly and comprehend the truth. The ability to challenge and test the veracity of our most sacred thoughts and beliefs is not merely a privilege but a shared duty.

In 962, numerous charges were brought against Pope John XII. A synod comprising 50 Italian and German bishops heard John had made a pact with the Devil and had offered a toast in his honour at the altar. More serious charges on the list included: “… committing incest with two sisters, of playing dice and invoking the Devil to assist him to win, of creating boy bishops for money, of ravishing diverse virgins, of converting the palace into a seraglio, of lying with his father’s harlot, with a certain Queen Dowager and with a widow called Anna and his own niece, of putting out the eyes of his father confessor, …of setting houses on fire, of breaking windows in the night …”

The 10 biggest health care lies in America

This system of medical mythology might also simply be called "lies", and today I'm sharing with NaturalNews readers the top ten lies that are still followed and promoted under mainstream health care in America today.

Writing in the latest issue of Australian Prescriber, Professor Peter Collignon, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit and Microbiology Department at The Canberra Hospital, said the Government's response to the virus was "inappropriate", fuelled by fears about its spread that were out of proportion to the real threat posed by the disease.

Up to one third of all Americans (and maybe it is more now) apparently don't believe the official 9/11 story – nor does the Commission's lead attorney. In fact, a recent Pew poll revealed that up to 80 percent of Americans don't trust their government. These numbers have never existed in America before. Something is not right.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Greece should serve as warning to the rest of the world that the push for globalism only benefits the globalists and will subject the people of planet Earth to perpetual debt slavery so long as they believe they should pay for the reckless behavior of government and business.

This is no different than what’s happening here in the U.S. just as it’s happening in capitalist countries around the globe. Through fraud, fakery and debauchery the capitalists around the globe have stolen huge amounts—not just by exploiting workers who create the products that bring in the profits—but by charging over-inflated prices for products that are worth far less.

Of course, the U.S. government can also credit itself with spending tens-of-trillions on wars, occupations and military bases around the world as well as bailouts for the wealthy.

"Climate Change" World Tax for Life

Global Warming scam to cost undefined Americans trillions.
This proposed global warming tax-and-spend scam would be one of the biggest financial assaults ever perpetrated against a free people.

Forgetting for a moment that the whole anthropogenic global warming myth is the biggest fraud ever sold to a free people, the plans the Obama Administration has to lighten the pockets of the American people is truly staggering.

President Obama started out claiming the cap-and-trade tax was going to cost $646 billion, and that they'd stick the evil companies primarily the power industry with the cost. Never mind that those costs will be passed on to the consumer in the form of an electric bill which is more than 40% higher; a little shallow class envy greases the wheels of socialism, right?

BBC lectures us incessantly on climate change. So why did their bosses make 68,000 domestic flights in two years?

Its viewers are frequently subjected to warnings about climate change. Yet the BBC has spent nearly £5million on tens of thousands of short-haul flights across Britain for its executives, staff and guests.

At a time when programmes regularly highlight the environmental impact of air travel, licence-fee payers have funded more than 68,000 internal trips over the past two years – an average of nearly 100 flights a day.

The BBC’s daily carbon footprint generated by the UK air trips is the equivalent of that produced by the average person in a year, say environmental experts.
