"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchal society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its objective is not over Eurasia or East Asia but to keep society intact." -- George Orwell From "1984"

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

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

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

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

How American News Media Works In Favor Of Israel

By Alison Weir Special to Salem-News.com

Critical analysis from one of the nation's leading voices on the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
Alison Weir
Alison Weir

(SACRAMENTO) - The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s major sources of instability. Americans are directly connected to this conflict, and increasingly imperiled by its devastation.

It is the goal of If Americans Knew to provide full and accurate information on this critical issue, and on our power – and duty – to bring a resolution.

America’s “Dog in the Fight”

In a clumsy and transparent effort to avoid granting Palestinians civil rights in the interim, some US protégés in Lebanon could care less about the refugees reclaiming their stolen homes and lands in Palestine. But, like the Palestinian refugees themselves, they are dead set against the refugees staying any longer than absolutely necessary in Lebanon.

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz.Sheriff Seeks Donations For Guns To Fight Drug Cartel

Sheriff Seeks Donations For Guns To Fight Drug Cartel
UPDATED: 4:13 pm MST August 2, 2010
PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. -- The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office is in need of funding to purchase rifles to arm first responders in the war against the Mexican drug cartel members and their affiliates.
There has been an increase in dangerous incidents, such as high-speed vehicle pursuits, shoot-outs, and incidents of ambush between deputies and smugglers.
Sheriff Paul Babeu said, “My deputies are outgunned and we are outmanned. We need help to raise money to buy Arizona made semi-automatic rifles to fight this threat against our citizens.”

SEC Probes BP Potential Insider Trading: Sources

U.S. securities regulators are investigating whether people may have illegally profited from trading on nonpublic information at BP Plc in the weeks and months following the disastrous Gulf of Mexico oil spill, two sources familiar with the investigation said on Monday.

But that wasn’t the thing that interested me as it was to be expected, the bit that interested me was that many of the lobbyists at these ‘think tanks’ were veterans of Big Tobacco propaganda and lobbying."

US regulators out of the loop on chemical risk

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

If you or someone you know had one of those recalled boxes of cereal, please send this article to them.

GORDON DUFF: FALSE FLAG NUKE ATTACK ON U.S. JUSTIFIED….”KING TORAH”

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

SEC charges billionaire Texas brothers who donate to GOP with fraud

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

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

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

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

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

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

House approves oil spill legislation

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

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

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

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

Revered Rabbi Preaches Slaughter Of Gentile Babies

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

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

Your Choice: Thomas Jefferson or the Status Quo

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

UN panel to fully investigate Gaza flotilla incident

A four-member UN panel was appointed Monday to fully investigate the Israeli interception of an aid flotilla off the coast of Gaza Strip, which resulted in nine people killed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Including a 19-year old boy, born in New York, carrying a US passport, and shot to death while lying helpless on the deck of the aid ship.

Israel may well have felt that they could hijack foreign-flagged ships in international waters and murder foreign citizens without cause and evade the consequences because they have gotten away with it before. 34 Americans on board the USS Liberty were murdered by Israel in a failed attempt to trick the US into war against Egypt, and not only did then-President Johnson not hold Israel to account; he actively aided the cover-up of that crime!

So here we are with Israel again committing acts of piracy or acts of war (take your pick) on the high seas against American-flagged ships. 19 people are dead, 60 wounded, and 9 American citizens briefly taken prisoner. So far, President Pussy Obama, like President Johnson, is bowing and scraping to help get Israel off of the hook for their barbarous actions.

Quite a far cry from 1904 when Ion Perdecaris was kidnapped by Mulah Raisuli and President Teddy Roosevelt sent 7 battleships to invade Morroco if need be, stating, "This government wants Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead."

The time has come for the American people to demand to know the nature of the "Special Relationship" between Israel and the United States; to demand to know why Americans are impoverished while Israel is enriched on our taxes, why our government still refuses to admit Israel has nuclear weapons even as the British press publishes proof of Israel's attempted nuclear sale to South Africa, how it is that Israel can attack and kill Americans during the Lavon Affair, USS Liberty, USS Cole, Beirut, 9-11, and finally how Israel can so often trick America into war on Israel's enemies such as Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. and not arouse the anger of the US Government.

All this election season I have been saying that American needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third. This crisis precipitated by Israel is a test of the resolve of America's leaders to take care of America and Americans and so far the entire government right up to the Oval Office is clearly wanting for the courage and resolve to deal with this latest atrocity. Ever ready to invade the unoffending nations Israel wants invaded, the US Government stands mute and impotent before a real attack on Americans in international waters.

The voters need to demand why.

Despite our political differences, we can only feel pity for Abu Mazen whose two open choices are both bad: a) negotiate while Israel continues to colonize and ethnically cleanse what remains of the occupied areas and thus lose what little credibility remains among the Palestinian public, OR b) insist on reference to International Law (and thus a settlement freeze) and lose hundreds of millions in funding and lucrative positions of power over the now de facto self-rule areas. In either case there will be no end to the occupation and no real or sovereign Palestinian state in the foreseeable future.

Afghanistan: The unsustainable in pursuit of the unbeatable

At midnight last night, the United States formally recorded its most lethal month in the seemingly endless war in Afghanistan. Some 66 servicemen died – at least two a day, every day, for 31 days. That was July. June was the deadliest for the coalition as a whole, and the first six months of 2010 were among the bloodiest for civilians since records began in 2007. What will August bring? Or September and October, months which, General David Petraeus, the US commander, has warned may well bring even more intense fighting? By that time, the war will have gone into its 10th year, and so will move towards, and beyond, the landmark when it will have lasted longer than the First and Second World Wars combined.

In 1993, the District of Attorney of San Francisco released 700 pages of documents implicating the Anti-Defamation League, an organization that claims to be a defender of civil rights, in a vast spying operation directed against American citizens who were opposed to Israel’s policies in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza and to the apartheid policies of the government of South Africa and passing on information to both governments.

Under great political pressure, Smith later dropped the charges. One wonders what would have happened had an Arab-American or Muslim organization been caught spying with the names of 10,000 people and 600 organizations in their files.

40 Bizarre Statistics That Reveal The Horrifying Truth About The Collapse Of The U.S. Economy

Most Americans still appear to be operating under the delusion that the "recession" will soon pass and that things will get back to "normal" very soon. Unfortunately, that is not anywhere close to the truth. What we are now witnessing are the early stages of the complete and total breakdown of the U.S. economic system. The U.S. government, state governments, local governments, businesses and American consumers have collectively piled up debt that is equivalent to approximately 360 percent of GDP. At no point during the Great Depression (or at any other time during our history) did we ever come close to such a figure.

Raiding and Regulating the New Enemies in the War on Drugs: Rawesome 'Foodies'

As if the prohibition of non-corporate drugs wasn't already enough of a tragedy of liberty, the Feds are now increasingly arming themselves to raid peaceful organic farms, food Co-Ops, and even Amish dairies over raw milk.

This past week the Los Angeles Times reported that policeman, with guns drawn, raided a private organic food store in Venice California called Rawesome Foods:

"With no warning one weekday morning, investigators entered an organic grocery with a search warrant and ordered the hemp-clad workers to put down their buckets of mashed coconut cream and to step away from the nuts.

The Tragic Death of a Night Porter

In fact, Dariusz Ratajczak’s troubles began with the publication of his booklet, “Dangerous Topics,” in March, 1999. The treatise was self-published and limited to only 320 copies, but gave credence to the old maxim that the ‘pen is mightier than the sword. Ratajczak’s essay provoked a firestorm of criticism among his contemporaries. In the month following the book’s publication, a rather surprised Ratajczak was summoned to the editorial offices of the Gazeta Wyborcza, a leading Polish newspaper, where he was sneeringly told, “We’ll trample you into the ground for the little book, and the little sub-chapter on the Holocaust.”

ZIONISM’S ‘RIGHTS’ OR WRONGS

re: Ms Glick’s stating: ‘Zionism after all is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people. To say that Jews – uniquely among all the nations – have no right to freedom and self-determination is obviously anti-Semitic.’

First off, this infers that Jews cannot be ‘free’, nor enjoy ‘self determination’ in countries other than Israel, which judging by their great success and pre-eminence in the US and in many other countries wherein they reside, is near to nonsense.

Unique to Zionism’s notion of the Jewish State is the claim that Israel belongs, and is home to, ALL Jews worldwide, no matter where they reside and regardless their citizen status elsewhere.

No other modern nation state is comprised on grounds of such specific ethnocentrism.

“HUGE discrepancies”: 1.8 million gallons of dispersant “now in question”, “Either BP was lying to Congress or to the Coast Guard”

For example, in one approval request, one of BP’s top executives, Doug Suttles, claimed that the maximum daily application of dispersants on the surface in the days preceding June 16, 2010 was 3,360 gallons on June 12. However, an examination of the dispersant totals BP provided to congressional staff in its daily “Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Response Updates” indicates that on June 11, BP said it applied 14,305 gallons of the chemical on the surface; on June 13, 36,000 gallons; and on June 14, 10,706 gallons.

According to publicly disclosed amounts on DeepwaterHorizonResponse.com, more than 1.8 million gallons of toxic dispersants were used to break up the oil as it came out of the well, as well as after it reached the ocean surface. The validity of those numbers are now in question.

Oliver Stone Apologizes for the Truth

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A lot of people are whining that Oliver Stone should have shown more personal courage and stood his ground regarding his original statements about Jewish control of the media. But the more I think about it, the more I have come to understand that Oliver Stone outsmarted the Israeli shills in Hollywood. When Haim Saban demanded that CBS/Showtime cancel Stone's series unless Stone apologized, he walked into Stone's trap, because in giving Haim Saban that apology, Stone communicated to the world the truth of his claims; that Israel's supporters do maintain an iron-fisted tyranny over the corporate media in this country. Had Stone fought back, Israel would scream anti-Semitism and play victim once more, in Panavision. By apologizing, Oliver Stone turned the tables. Now he is seen as the victim, and Haim Saba is the modern incarnation of Joseph McCarthy.

Game, set, and match to Oliver Stone.

US boosts Israeli missile funding

US House appropriators have pushed funding for Israeli missile defense programs to its highest level ever, with $422.7 million now slated for 2011.

Last week, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense added $95.7m. to the original White House funding request for the long-range Arrow programs and medium-range David’s Sling, according to sources close to the panel. The lion’s share – $108.8m. – will go to the Arrow 3 system, which the US signed off on after some initial hesitation.

n addition, the monies include $205m. pledged this spring by US President Barack Obama to the short-range Iron Dome project.

The package is more than twice as much as last year’s total, and adds up to nearly $1 billion in aid to joint US-Israel missile defense programs in the past four years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With an economy in meltdown, two failed wars grinding on, US infrastructure crumbling, and homeless Vets sleeping on our streets, this is the highest and best use Congress sees for our tax dollars, more weapons for Israel?!?

Al-Qaeda Creating an Army in Yemen

he heads of Al-Qaeda in Yemen claimed Thursday to be creating an army in the country's south. In an audio recording posted online, terrorist commander Mohammed Sayeed al-Omda said Al-Qaeda will soon have a fighting force of 12,000 soldiers based in the cities of Aden and Abyan.

Omda issued a threat to continue attacking Yemeni troops. “This is a message to the Yemeni government forces and National security service: Our swords are ready and we are going to cleanse the land,” he declared.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me get my head around this.

The government of Yemen, headed by "President" (apparently, for life) Ali Saleh. This government is characterized by impartial observers as being one of the most hideously corrupt governments in the region, with rampant poverty, illiteracy, no infrastructure, and zero transparency in its government.

This deadly "cocktail" of circumstances makes violent radicalization look attractive to some.

Yet, the US government has supported this thug unequivocally; and by the way, here is actually what your tax payer dollars to Yemen have paid for. As reported in:

http://armiesofliberation.com/archives/2010/07/30/unhappy-us-congress-finds-us-mil-aid-diverted-to-the-genocide-in-saada-yemen/

"The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has asserted that tens of millions of dollars in U.S. military and security assistance was diverted from the war against Al Qaida to Yemen’s campaign against the Iranian-backed Shi’ite rebels, called Houthis, in the north. The committee reported discrepancies between records of U.S. security assistance and those in the Yemeni military."

"The need for monitoring has become acute amid a significant increase in U.S. military aid to Yemen. Washington has approved more than $150 million in military and security aid for 2010 as the Pentagon oversaw an offensive against Al Qaida."

So, instead of attempting to fix the infrastructure, economy, and literacy in Yemen, what has President Selah chosen to do with our money?!? It apparently has been spent on a genocide against his own people.

When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable; but somehow, the US State Department, Pentagon, and White House are consistently, pathologically incapable of grasping this fact, as demonstrated by the thugs they continue to support in the name of "regional stability".

US Support for Israel Near All-Time High

Speaking Saturday night, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that he welcomed the support of the American public, as expressed in a Gallup poll released Friday. The poll showed that US support of Israel is at a near all-time high; 67 percent of Americans held a favorable opinion of Israel, more than for nearly any other country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder precisely what slender demographic the Gallop group polled in order to predetermine the outcome here.

Most thinking people I know, particularly after one American was shot while lying helpless on the deck of an aid ship in Israel's flotilla massacre, are highly concerned about how Israel is and has been treating the Palestinians; the siege of Gaza; and the brisk annexation of Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Also, most thinking people I know are concerned by the fact that Israel is a nuclear armed power which refuses to sign the NNPT.

They are also alarmed at the degree to which the US and Israel are militarily coordinated, at the highest level.

They are also alarmed at the degree of Israeli influence over the US Congress.

They understand that Israel was a tremendous "cheerleader" for the US war against Iraq, another of its alleged "existential threats" in the region; they understand that the war against Iraq was based on a pack of lies, as will be the impending war against Iran.

Thinking Americans cannot support Israel, because it has become a danger to the Middle East, and a danger to the survival of the US itself.

Greenspan: Modest economic recovery 'in a pause'

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan says he thinks the economy is having a modest recovery, but right now there's a "pause" in that recovery, so it feels like a "quasi-recession."

Greenspan says long-term unemployment is pulling the economy apart even though large banks are doing much better and large companies are in excellent shape.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Pause", my astrolabe!

It is obvious that this gentleman in is a world of his own which has absolutely nothing to do with working Americans.

This country is in a recession, period, end of discussion, and any attempt to mischaracterize the US's current economic woes as anything else is like putting lipstick on a pig.

The “Summer Camp Of Destruction:” Israeli High Schoolers Assist The Razing Of A Bedouin Town

I traveled to al-Arakib yesterday with a delegation from Ta’ayush, an Israeli group that promotes a joint Arab-Jewish struggle against the occupation. The activists spent the day preparing games and activities for the village’s traumatized children, helping the villagers replace their uprooted olive groves, and assisting in the reconstruction of their demolished homes. In a massive makeshift tent where many of al-Arakib’s residents now sleep, I interviewed village leaders about the identity of the cheering civilians. Each one confirmed the presence of the civilians, describing how they celebrated the demolitions. As I compiled details, the story grew increasingly horrific.

It has often been argued that America expects Pakistan to be actively engaged in the Afghan war in return for the military assistance it provides. The answer is quite simple. The American establishment is doing all that needs to be done in support of its own war and not for the love of Pakistan. The war is theirs, not Pakistan’s. Pakistan should do and is doing what is necessary and feasible, without jeopardizing its own security.

As for the assistance, bulk of the $10 billion that America gave in the past and was branded as "aid" was in fact the reimbursement of expenses that Pakistan had already incurred in supporting the war effort.

Timing of National Guard's Deployment to Southwest Border Stirs Confusion, Anger

President Obama announced in May he would send National Guard troops amid growing concerns about border violence stemming from illegal immigration and drug smuggling. Many called for a military presence along the U.S-Mexico border to assist border patrol agents as Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a controversial law making illegal immigration a state crime -- a policy that a judge weakened this week in federal court.

Earlier this month, the Department of Homeland Security said the troops would be sent Aug. 1. But now both the National Guard Bureau and the Customs Border Protection says that date was when they were directed to start ramping up their numbers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no "confusion" to be found here, although the anger is completely understandable.

The Federal government, which refuses to take the necessary steps to control illegal immigration (because Congress' campaign contributors love cheap illegal labor) is cynically timing this deployment closer to the election, so that they can appear to have "done something" on the issue.

Unfortunately, the deployment of just 1200 National Guard members is merely cosmetic, and cannot really solve the problem here, because there is no real will in Washington to solve it.

Chelsea's Wedding: Let Let Them Eat Cake

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

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

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

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

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

What Washington, the Fed and Wall Street have to understand is that you cannot borrow your way to wealth. There is an eventual law of diminishing returns. Present prosperity cannot be paid for by future production and services. The public senses this and their confidence continues to dissipate. Seventy percent believe there will be no recovery. They are angry and want to purge congress and the Senate of the criminals they previously elected. This is a reflection in part of unemployment of 22-3/8%, falling hours and wages and perpetual loss of purchasing power.

"Greece has entered a new phase of political violence by anarchist-oriented organisations that are more murderous, dangerous, capable and nihilistic than ever before," said Athanasios Drougos, a defence and counter-terrorism analyst in Athens.

Gulf Loop Current Stalls from BP Oil Disaster

He further notes that the effects of this stall have also begun to spread to the Gulf Stream. This is because the Loop Current is a crucial element of the Gulf Stream itself and why it is commonly referred to as the “main engine” of the Stream.

A Police State You'd Better Believe In

When our nation is waging "war on" so many things (drugs, crime, poverty, terrorism), it's hard to know where to enlist and when to defect. Or put another way, when should a patriot oppose his government? One answer, which we may hope is obvious, is when his government is waging war on liberty. The trick, of course, is to recognize it as such, since the government will always claim to be defending liberty when waging war against it.

A HOME IS NOT A SAND CASTLE

Life for Palestinian families is not a game. Their homes are not sand castles, but the uniformed bullies treat them as such, demolishing them for sport and then doing it again when they are rebuilt.

Military keeps distressed soldiers at combat site

Sgt. Thomas Riordan didn't want to return to Afghanistan after home leave. He had just fought through a battle that killed eight soldiers, and when he arrived home his wife said she was leaving. He almost killed himself that night.

When his psychologist asked what he thought he should do, Riordan said: Stay in Colorado.

Instead, the military brought Riordan back to this base in the eastern Afghan mountains, where mortar rounds sound regularly and soldiers have to wear flack jackets if they step outside their barracks before 8 a.m., even to go to the bathroom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We didn't have a great deal of this kind of stress syndrome going on in our military during World War II, because the men and women in uniform understood, very clearly, that the US was on the right side of history.

However,many in today's military, serving in Afghanistan understand that in the prosecution of this war does not put the US on the right side of history.

This is a war about potential private profit from oil pipelines, drugs, and minerals.

That is what every maiming, physical or psychological, or death of every American soldier has been about in this horrendous, slow-dance slaughter.

US cannot afford to withdraw from global role: Mullen

The US military's top officer on Sunday said economic trouble at home should not lead the United States
to walk away from its global role, warning against a turn toward isolation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: If the American people decide they are tired of having their lives looted for all these foreign wars, the military are gonna have to get regular jobs building stuff instead of blowing crap up and killing people for a living.

The Tribunal Conspiracy

It seems only logical that Israel would try to nail the Lebanese group through the Hariri affair, hoping that this would shatter the current alliance between Hezbollah and Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the second son of Rafik, along with creating havoc between Lebanese Sunnis and Shiites, notes Sami Moubayed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Short version. When Mossad whacked Hariri, Israel led the campaign to blame Syria for the assassination, to force Syria and their military support out of Lebanon, setting the stage for the failed 2006 invasion of Lebanon by Israel. Now, Israel is pointing the finger at Hezbollah for the murder, to try and again weaken Lebanon in advance of a new invasion.

Israel warns Hamas after rocket fire

"I see the Hamas as directly responsible for any attack that comes from the Gaza Strip toward the state of Israel and the international community should see it this way as well," Netanyahu said. "Israel reserves the right to defend its citizens and we will continue to use all means to protect the people of Israel and the children of Israel."

The attacks caused damage but no injuries. No Palestinian group took responsibility for the attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for another major strike against Gaza by Israel in the not too distant future.

Greece orders military to step in as truckers vote to continue strike

The Greek government ordered the country's armed forces to help deliver fuel as truck drivers voted to continue a contentious strike, state media reported.

Officials said Friday that military vehicles would be used to ensure the supply of fuel to airports, power plants and hospitals, and navy boats could help carry tanker trucks to islands, according to official news agency ANA.

Greece's 33,000 licensed truck drivers went on strike this week to protest government plans to open up their industry and issue new licenses.

The government is required to make the changes under the terms of loan packages from the European Union and International Monetary Fund.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Greek people appear to be fed up with having to do with less so that politicians and bankers can have more.

US military chief admits to Iran attack plan

The top US military officer says he has a plan to attack Iran if needed to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons, but is "extremely concerned" about the possible repercussions of such a strike.

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said military action against Iran could have "unintended consequences that are difficult to predict in what is an incredibly unstable part of the world."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only reason that part of the world is unstable is Israel and the US won't mind their own business!

TARGETED KILLINGS IS NEW U.S. FOCUS IN AFGHANISTAN

When President Obama announced his new war plan for Afghanistan last year, the centerpiece of the strategy — and a big part of the rationale for sending 30,000 additional troops — was to safeguard the Afghan people, provide them with a competent government and win their allegiance.

Eight months later, that counterinsurgency strategy has shown little success, as demonstrated by the flagging military and civilian operations in Marja and Kandahar and the spread of Taliban influence in other areas of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nine years on, the only way out will be through a negotiated settlement in Afghanistan.

At that point, the US will need to negotiate with whatever government is left in Kabul for the oil pipeline and mineral rights, which puts the US squarely where it was in August of 2001, when the Bush administration thought that the price being demanded by the Taliban was "too high", and that somehow, a war - and the cost in blood and money - would be "cheaper".

US military chief admits to Iran attack plan

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said military action against Iran could have "unintended consequences that are difficult to predict in what is an incredibly unstable part of the world."

But, speaking on Sunday's "Meet the Press" program on NBC, Mullen said allowing Iran to develop a nuclear weapon was also unacceptable.

"Quite frankly, I am extremely concerned about both of those outcomes," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Exhausted and Exasperated Memo to Admiral Mullen:

Iran is a signatory to the NNPT. All of their nuclear work, dedicated to developing a power plant, with technical assistance from Russia, is done under the supervision of the IAEA. To date, no nuclear material has been unaccounted for, nor has Iran been enriching uranium above the 20% level necessary for the creation of nuclear isotopes. To enrich to weapons level uranium takes 90% or better enrichment.

However, Admiral Mullen, Israel, which has nuclear bombs, refuses to sign the NNPT, or allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

Sir, I submit that the only reason that the US is set to go to war against Iran is that Israel has ordered the US to do this. And again, just as was the case with Iraq, it will be American kids who will fight, get maimed for life, and die to neutralize yet another of Israel's alleged "existential threats" in the region.

US 'refutes' July death toll in Iraq

The US military on Sunday took the unusual step of refuting Iraqi figures released a day earlier which showed July was the single deadliest month in the war-torn country since May 2008.

The American decision to release their own toll came after the Iraqi figures showed a sharp upswing in the level of violence nearly five months after parliamentary elections which have yet to result in the formation of a new government and as the United States carries out a major troop withdrawal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We know when the US military spokespeople lie to the American people: they open their mouths, and words come out of them.

At this point, after all the lies of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, I would almost be willing to accept the Iraqi figures over and above the US's figures on this.

BP, Coast Guard ignored order to stop using dispersants: report

BP continued spraying large amounts of a controversial dispersant onto the surface of the Gulf of Mexico even after an EPA order to stop doing so, the Washington Post reports.

According to the Post, BP used a loophole in the EPA's order that allowed the Coast Guard to rubber-stamp "exemptions" to the order.

US to activate missile shield over southern Europe: report

Citing unnamed Pentagon officials, the newspaper said the US Defense Department is nearing a deal to establish a key radar ground station probably in Turkey or Bulgaria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this is not sourced, looking at a map, it is clear to see that the Pentagon is not thinking about Iran in terms of this missile shield placement, but Russia.
