For Israel, a Reckoning

The farce of the climate change summit in Copenhagen affirmed a world war waged by the rich against most of humanity. It also illuminated a resistance growing perhaps as never before: an internationalism linking justice for the planet earth with universal human rights, and criminal justice for those who invade and dispossess with impunity. And the best news comes from Palestine.

Easily Hacked Voting Systems to be Used in MA Special Election for the U.S. Senate

As the election looms, tempers flare, money is poured into the contest from all sides, and Democrats sweat out what should have been a safe seat for them - a Democrat named Kennedy has held that particular seat for more than the last 50 years - questions about whether the election results can be trusted have already emerged in a race where the stakes couldn't be higher.

The electronic voting systems used in Massachusetts are notoriously plagued with problems and vulnerabilities, and are in violation of federal voting system standards. Moreover, they are sold, programmed, and maintained by a company with a disturbing criminal background.

Certainly, the rhetoric of an enlightened society groveling at the Federal government’s feet is beginning to wear more than a little thin with the American public. This is evident when considering the annual report of NICS background checks, which are done by the FBI for all pending firearm sales. The following graph for the years 1999 through December 2009 illustrates how many American’s attitude seems to have changed.

ClimateGate: Will the Alarmists Have to go Back to Ice Ages?

Well, friends, the AGW folks are on the ropes, and they are taking a beating. When people can step out of their doors and tell that it’s VERY COLD, they aren’t going to be easily convinced that AGW is happening. When people have free access to international information, they can see that it is VERY COLD all over the northern hemisphere!

Of course, there are some AGW folks that are trying very hard to keep the faith, but they are coming off as increasingly desperate. Al Gore has not been seen much lately. Could the Goracle be in a fetal position, counting the billions he might have made if Cap and Trade had passed? Could “AGW” actually be code for “Al Gore’s Wealth?”

Met Office boss says winter forecasts have been 'very good indeed'

The head of the Met Office yesterday insisted that its recent forecasts had been "very good indeed", and blamed the public for not heeding snow warnings.

John Hirst also defended his £200,000-a-year salary as chief executive of the national forecaster, saying that his pay reflected the success of the organisation.

Mr Hirst dismissed complaints that the Met Office failed to alert the public about the extent of this week's snowfall as not "based in fact", and accused people of ignoring its warnings.

Arrest of Alleged American Spy in Cuba Further Sets Back U.S.-Cuba Relations

The arrest of an American citizen in Cuba on Dec. 4 has dealt another blow to hopes that Cuba and the U.S. could normalize diplomatic relations. The unnamed American was arrested at José Marti International Airport as he tried to board a U.S. –bound flight. Cuban officials say the man has been detained on allegations of espionage, an accusation strongly refuted by U.S. officials. Nevertheless, this latest episodes gives credence to the notion that U.S.-Cuban relations have taken a turn for the worse, and even the most sanguine of optimists agree that the window of opportunity created by the election of Barack Obama is quickly slamming shut...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels a lot like the all-too-convenient crash of Francis Gary Powers' U-2 over Russia, which ended Kennedy's attempt to end the cold war in 1960, a move which had it succeeded, would have meant the loss of trillions of taxpayer dollars to the Pentagon and Defense contractors.

Canadian Labour from 1880-1920: United by War and Divided by Ego, but Outclassed and Overwhelmed by Capital –

At the turn of the 20th century, Canadian capital?s progressive attack on the sovereignty of the individual crossed boundaries of age, gender, ethnicity and occupation. Lacking the means to combat a covert propaganda war or the munitions to resist federal police, working-class opposition was generally ineffectual. Nonetheless, ideologues championed attempts to alleviate the suffering of poor and the oppression of wage workers. Battles were fought – often in vain – in attempts to secure a living wage, unemployment support and access to employment opportunities, but well-meaning social critics often unintentionally served the interests of capital.

The Times can reveal that Sir Fred, blamed for the near collapse of RBS before it was rescued by a £20 billion taxpayer bailout, started as a senior adviser to RMJM, the world’s fifth largest architecture firm, before Christmas.

FLASHBACK - Missing Gold

There appear to be no reports of precious metals discovered between November of 2001 and the completion of excavation several months later. Assuming that the above reports described the value of precious metals in the vaults before the attack, and that the $230 million mentioned by Giuliani represented the approximate value of metals recovered, it would seem that at least the better part of a billion dollars worth of precious metals went missing. (It is not plausible, of course, that whatever destroyed the towers vaporized gold and silver, which are dense, inert metals that are extremely unlikely to participate in chemical reactions with other materials.)

Cuba is Missing...From US Reports on the International Response to Haiti’s Earthquake

As for the rest of the US media, they have simply ignored Cuba.

In fact, left unmentioned is the reality that Cuba already had over 400 doctors posted to Haiti to help with the day-to-day health needs of this poorest nation in the Americas, and that those doctors were the first to respond to the disaster, setting up a hospital right next to the main hospital in Port-au-Prince which collapsed in the earthquake.

Far from “doing nothing” about the disaster as the right-wing propagandists at Fox-TV were claiming, Cuba has been one of the most effective and critical responders to the crisis, because it had set up a medical infrastructure before the quake, which was able to mobilize quickly and start treating the victims.

Palin gets 100G for mag cover

Sarah Palin and her daughter, Bristol, earned an eye-popping $100,000 for their new In Touch Weekly cover, sources say. For just eight hours' work at her own home, Palin pocketed nearly as much as her $125,000-a-year salary as Alaska governor. It seems her decision to quit her political role is making big financial sense. Palin also reportedly earns $100,000 per public-speaking engagement, while she has a multiyear deal as a Fox News Channel analyst.

The Untold Story of Afghanistan

Despite the aforementioned situation and the eight years of comparable failure that preceded the weeks described above, the Obama administration is sending at least 30,000 more US troops into the Afghan fray.

Like his imperial predecessors in Washington, London and Russia, Barack Obama is convinced that his army can somehow shape Afghanistan into a nation that will do the bidding of the empire he leads.

This is a direct challenge to EFSA and FSA, who have maintained consistently that there are no differences between GM- fed and non-GM-fed animals, and that there is therefore no need for labelling or segregation of feed supplies to meet consumer demand for GM-free products.

The Department of Homeland Security is further increasing aviation security in response to intelligence indicating Islamist terrorists were planning another attack on the United States.

The new regulations — which are to be announced later Thursday — were not described in detail, but a senior U.S. official told NBC News on condition of anonymity that they would include further in-flight restrictions in passengers’ movement, more random pre-flight screening of passengers and an increase in the number of federal air marshals on flights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just when the US needs to not "kneecap" the aviation and hospitality industries any further, what do they do?

Precisely that.

These new regulations have nothing to do with safety; this is about demonstrating to the American people that they no longer have any rights, and Code Napoleon Law prevails in this country.

This means that now, every one of us is now assumed to be guilty until proven innocent.

This is a the kind of posture taken by a government which is very afraid of its own people.

U.S. Preparing for Potential New Wave of Haitians Fleeing North

"Guantanamo is going to be an enormously valuable asset as we go through this," State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters on Thursday, speaking generally about U.S. efforts to help Haiti. "[Guantanamo] is in the vicinity. ... So we're identifying all of the assets in the region that we can use in order to stage operations."

Once at the Guantanamo facility, the refugees would be supervised by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which oversees the facility and has contracted the Florida-based Geo Group firm to manage day-to-day operations.

Officials involved with the center emphasized that no decision has been made concerning possible refugees from Haiti, but officials said they are prepared just in case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GITMO?!?!?

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?

After the hell these people have endured,that the US government is even thinking about warehousing themat GITMO betrays a human insensitivity right up there with the callous treatment victims of Hurricane Katrina received.

Possible peacekeeping role for US troops in Haiti

The US relief mission in Haiti remains focused on saving lives but American troops could be called on to help keep order if security deteriorates, officials said.

"At this time we're not seeing any security concerns," a defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP.

But he added: "Soldiers and Marines are trained to conduct security operations if they need to."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in:

http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1G2-3401700108.html

Other exports include cocoa and essential oils for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Haiti has become a major transshipment point for illegal drug trafficking.

One has to wonder, looking at what happened in Afghanistan after the invasion and occupation, and how illicit drug traffic exploded, if this is why the US sent in soldiers and marines, but not the Army Corp of Engineers.

Report: Turkey warns Lebanon that Israel may be planning attack

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan this week warned Lebanese leaders that Israel may be planning an attack on its northern neighbor, Lebanese sources told the London-based Arabic language daily A-Sharq al-Awsat on Thursday.

At a meeting in Ankara with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and President Michel Suleiman on Monday, Erdogan declared that Israel was endangering world peace by using exaggerated force against the Palestinians, breaching Lebanon's air space and waters and for not revealing the details of its nuclear program

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has been testing Lebanon's airspace to see if it can get Lebanon to shoot back as an excuse to start another military confrontation here.

And this time, if Israel attacks, it will go all the way to the Litani River, as they are getting desperately short of clean water.

Secure your checked bags -- fly with a gun

VIA Lew Rockwell

Many airports won't let you effectively lock your suitcases when you fly, and the new limits on carry-on luggage thanks to moisture-terror-hysteria mean it's open season for unscrupulous TSA employees and baggage handlers who want to help themselves to expensive cameras and other valuable in checked bags.

But once you add a gun -- even a starter pistol -- to your luggage, it gets extra-locked, gains new tracking privileges, and is subject to heightened scrutiny all the way to your destination.

Insane air board's new role: Tire Nazis

Too much. CARB is interpeting AB 32 in such absurdly broad fashion it wants to deputize the state's auto boards to bully all vehicle owners. It's too much for Brian Stiver, director of the state Department of Consumer Affairs, and Sherry Mehl, chief of the state Bureau of Auto Repairs:

Unless (Automotive Service Providers) offer the (tire check/inflation) service for free to the consumer and the consumer accepts it, the regulation would have the effect of either forcing the ASPs to check tires without the consent of the consumer in violation of the ... Automotive Repair Act, or force ASPs to refuse to provide any repair services at all to the consumer. These are legally untenable options ...

No Entry For Arabs

Anyone observing Israel these days - and the hazing to which the Turkish ambassador was subjected is only the latest example - sees the neighborhood bully. Anyone who cares about self-preservation will stay away from this hard-hearted, dull-witted madman whose sole guiding principle is "national honor" - or in other words, sowing strife and dissension that undermines the state's interests.

Yet this bull-in-a-china-shop behavior toward other countries is dwarfed by the mad frenzy at home. Ever since they were sworn in, the cabinet and Knesset have been competing over which will make life harder for the state's Arab citizens. And the climax of this frenzy was reached over land.

FBI Times Square Billboard Mirrors Running Man Police State

The FBI’s unveiling of a digital billboard in Times Square as part of an effort to enlist public help in finding suspects and displaying other “security messages” sounds like a hybrid of George Orwell’s 1984 and the wacky dictatorship portrayed in the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie The Running Man.

“The FBI’s most wanted will soon be staring at tourists in Times Square. The agency will unveil a digital billboard there Friday,” reports the Associated Press.

“It will air pictures of fugitives and missing persons. It also will publicize high-priority security messages. Besides criminals, it will draw attention to kidnap victims and missing children. The FBI hopes the public can help find them.”

Defamation, Must be Seen!!! A Film Review by Gilad Atzmon

The film is an astonishing exposure of the morbid conditions that entangle contemporary Jewish secular identity. It explores and ridicules the current notion of anti Semitism and the lobbies that are engaged in disseminating such a fear. It also exposes those Jewish ethnic campaigners who, for some reason, insist on shaping their identity around the phantasmic idea of being ‘racially’ chased, defamed or hated.

Why they hate us? It's not a secret

"What is the motivation?" she asked. "We never hear what you find out on why."

Mr. Brennan's reply: "Al-Qaeda is an organization that is dedicated to murder and wanton slaughter of innocents. ... They attract individuals like Mr. [Umar Farouk] Abdulmutallab and use them for these types of attacks. He was motivated by a sense of religious sort of drive. Unfortunately, al-Qaeda has perverted Islam, and has corrupted the concept of Islam, so that he's [sic] able to attract these individuals. But al-Qaeda has the agenda of destruction and death."

On it went, for about two minutes, until Secretary Napolitano and Mr. Brennan decided to ignore any further queries from Ms. Thomas.

After being subjected to eight hours of interrogation, Malsin was deemed a security threat and was slated to be deported to Prague Thursday morning.

Fake Gold Bars in Fort Knox!

Officials were shocked to learn that the bars were fake. They contained cores of tungsten with only a outer coating of real gold. What's more, these gold bars, containing serial numbers for tracking, originated in the US and had been stored in Fort Knox for years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this story first surfaced, I wondered if it was a rumor intended to discourage people from buying gold and keep them in the equities markets.

But in looking back at gold prices over the last several years, it has become apparent that a lot of gold was being dumped on the market whenever prices started to rise. In many cases the gold sales were coming from central banks and the British and US Governments. Yet we are assured that plenty of gold to collateralize loans remains in the vaults.

Now we have these multiple reports of fake gold bars, all traceable back to Fort Knox and a single US smelter, and I am forming a new theory.

The US Government and Federal Reserve, already making worthless paper into money, decided that the bullion in Fort Knox and the Fed vaults did not have to be real gold as long as people believed it was real. So as the economy tightened and investors started to abandon the stock market (favored hunting preserve of Goldman Sachs) for precious metals, the Fed/US Government decided they could have their gold and sell it too!

So a huge amount of fake gold bars were crafted to continue to be used as "gaming tokens" for international transactions. Meanwhile the real gold could be dumped into the market to keep gold prices down and investors in the stock market (favored hunting preserve of Goldman Sachs). As long as nobody questioned the real worth of the bars, just as they never question the real worth of Federal Reserve Notes, the system works after a fashion.

But now the jig is up.

And we have a really good reason the Federal Reserve is working so hard to avoid an audit.

Fake Gold Bars Discovered in HK LBMA Approved Vaults

It is proving quite difficult to find any mainstream information sources able to substantiate the rumors that have been circulating about the widespread distribution of fake tungsten filled gold bars. So the story goes, about 15 years ago between 1.3 and 1.5 million 400oz tungsten bars were allegedly manufactured by a sophisticated refiner in the US. To save you whisking out your calculator that’s more than 16,000 metric tons. Subsequently, some 640,000 of these tungsten blanks were 24kt gold plated and shipped to Fort Knox. Since then these or other bars manufactured by the same company have found their way into sovereign vaults and ETF’s holdings around the world.

Israel delegitimizers threaten its existence

Frustrated by Israel's military might, its adversaries - primarily Iran and its Arab allies in Hezbollah and Hamas - have experimented with politics and violence in their attempt to cap our power and diminish it. Over time, they were able to crystallize a set of ideas that have proven effective. Rather than seeking to conquer Israel, they would aim to bring about its implosion, as with South Africa or the Soviet Union, by attacking its political and economic values.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is thrashing about trying to find someone to blame for the PR disaster created by the wars in Lebanon and Gaza.

Like their counterparts in the US, Israel's leaders are still mired in the 1960s cold-war mindset, when they could put out any lies at all in the media and assume 90% of the public would believe it.

Israel's problems today are not the fault of some evil Arabs or evil Bloggers but of Israel's leader4ship failing to evolve along with the modern world. They are still stuck in the middle of the last century on so many level and like any life form that cannot adapt to a changing environment, they are doomed to extinction.

They politely told the officers they knew nothing about the fence, but instead of simply being allowed to carry on playing they were given an official ‘stop and search’ form which they had to sign themselves.

‘Sledging downhill’ was given as the ‘grounds for intervention’ on Monday.

Where these stereotypes originated remains a mystery to us. In reality, they couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only have 42% of Americans admitted to trying pot, but pot smokers have gone on to become some of the most successful people in our society. We’re not talking about Willie Nelson and Snoop.

Why didn't Israel consider presenting, even through some illusion, a nicer face to the world than Lieberman's threatening visage? Why doesn't a country so ostracized by so much of the world not ask itself, even for a moment, what part it played in shaping that position of isolation, from which it simply attacks and points fingers at its critics? How can a society which has already existed with a cruel occupation in its backyard for two generations refuse to deal with it, continue feeling so good about itself and evade any kind of self-examination or even an inkling of moral equivocation?
