Beck vs. Assange and What it all Means
Too many Americans, and their leaders as well, haven’t got an accurate sense of the real world. In part, that is why the U.S. government regularly formulates domestic and foreign policies that answer the demands of interest groups while harming the rest of us. Such policies fail in the long run. In doing so they open political space for both charlatans and truth tellers. And here they are in the persons of Glenn Beck and Julian Assange.

IDF officers get photo of dead child

Gruber is just one of the officers who received a threatening poster from Spain, after his name appeared on a website referring to IDF soldiers involved in Operation Cast Lead as "war criminals".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You've got to give it to the Israeli press as among the world's most Orwellian users of the English language.

"Threatening"?!? This is simply a documentation of the death and destruction wreaked upon Palestinian citizens (many children, women, the medically fragile, and the elderly) during Operation Cast Lead.

This child doesn't "appear"to be dead: he or she is dead.

And so the question is put, rather as a theological question, than a moral question, since Jewish Israelis are supposed believe in a God.

And it is a question which must be put to IDF leadership: how do you explain the murder of children, and attempt to defend the indefensible?

What kind of monsters are you, that you express utterly no remorse for these actions?!?

As reported on 12 September, 2009 at:


The Israeli official figures seriously underestimated the civilian Palestinian death toll exacted during its onslaught in Gaza early this year, according to painstaking research to be published today.

The first detailed casualty figures from an Israeli human rights organisation since the war ended puts the number of children under 16 killed in the offensive at 252 as opposed to the 89 cited by the military. B’Tselem says its fieldworkers gathered death certificates, photos, and testimonies relating to all 252 of the children.

B’Tselem, which said it had carried out “months of meticulous investigation and cross-checks with numerous sources” has, unlike the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), made public the names of all those it said were killed in the war. It said that since the IDF had refused to furnish the agency with its own detailed list, it was impossible to compare the names but that “the blatant discrepancy between the numbers is intolerable.”

Making peace impossible

In a move primarily aimed at making it harder to cede occupied Arab land as part of any peace agreement with Syria or the Palestinians, the Israeli Knesset this week approved a bill requiring a two-thirds Knesset majority, as well as a general referendum, for any prospective withdrawal from the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, writes Khaled Amayreh in occupied East Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel doesn't want peace; it wants, and has always wanted, territory, and by any means necessary.

What we are most likely to see, in the aftermath of the passage of this bill, will be a brisk annexation of Jerusalem and the West Bank, coupled by forcible expulsions of Palestinians who have lived in various homes here for generations.

Report: N.Korea deploys missiles near S.Korea border

North Korea has deployed SA-2 surface-to-air missiles near its disputed Yellow Sea border with South Korea, a report said Sunday as a major US-led naval exercise began further to the south.

The missiles appear to be targeting the South's jet fighters flying near the Northern Limit Line which marks the border, Yonhap news agency quoted a government source as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like the South Korean government hasn't been beefing up defense on their side of the border?!?

North Korean leadership is many things, but it is not stupid. It sees what is coming, and is doing the best to defend itself and its people.

And remember: as reported on 23 November 2010 at:


"The skirmish began after North Korea warned the South to stop carrying out military drills near their sea border, South Korean officials said.

When Seoul refused and fired artillery into disputed waters - away from the North Korean shore - the North retaliated by shelling Yeonpyeong."

One of the worst personal shortcomings a person can have is a lack of capacity to be embarrassed by their own behavior. Alex Jones is a classic example. When I heard what he said, I couldn’t believe it at first. It’s the sort of thing that only gets said by absolutely sold out hacks without conscience, principles or a brain. In Alex’s case it’s a form of career suicide. You can’t take something like that back and only a Tea Party supporter or a southern Baptist fundamentalist would believe it. I expect Alex Jones to be a Fox commentator in six months. He said that Hezbollah was training Mexican drug gangs. That’s laugh out loud funny.

Odd Couple: North Korea & America

The sails of US Asian policy ride on the winds of North Korean belligerence

Tony Cartalucci, Contributing Writer

On March 26, 2010, the ROKS Cheonan is hit by what appears to be a German-made torpedo, sinks while claiming the lives of 46 South Korean sailors.

The world, America at the lead, was quick to point its finger at North Korea before South Korea itself ruled them out as a suspect. North Korea adamantly insisted it was not behind the attack, and despite their paranoid and isolated posture little beyond insanity could serve as a motive . . .

The Luck of the Irish Runs Out

The Irish government announced plans this week to tap the welfare state and working class for much of the $20B in savings they've pledged to find over the next four years, but the austerity measures will not touch large businesses like Microsoft, Intel, Google, HP, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pfizer, which created jobs and fueled exports in Ireland after being lured by low corporate tax rates.

Webmaster's Commentary:

China to fund $6 Billion refinery expansion in Cuba

China is taking another great leap forward in its Latin American energy plans, raising Cuba's energy importance in the process, with a deal to lead a $6 billion refinery expansion project on the communist island, experts said this week.

The project, to be funded mostly by China's Eximbank, is the latest of several significant moves in the region for the Asian power as it continues to expand its global influence.

For Cuba, the refurbishing of its antiquated refinery in the coastal city of Cienfuegos will provide an outlet for oil it hopes to tap soon in the Gulf of Mexico, while also laying the groundwork for the island to possibly become a key oil transhipment point for the Caribbean basin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I mention this is passing, only to point out that if it were not for the consistently insane US boycott of Cuba, access to that oil could well have gone to US companies.

US companies have business relationships with - and investments in - countries like Viet Nam, for heaven's sake!!

South Korea Slams China's Feeble Attempt To Cool The Crisis

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak told a visiting senior Chinese official earlier Sunday that Seoul was not interested in the early resumption of the six-party talks as it is more urgent to deal with Pyongyang's belligerence.

Seoul's foreign ministry also effectively rejected Beijing's proposal, saying that China's offer to resume six-party talks on North Korea "should be studied very carefully" and creating the right atmosphere for reopening the negotiations is a priority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears, under US pressure, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak has rejected the one possibility, presented by China, which could lead to substantial reductions in tension here.

And again, if the US is really sincere about reducing tensions, why has there been no emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called by the US and South Korea?!? That makes absolutely no sense at all, unless the real agenda is the fabrication of a war which would inevitably pit the US and China against each other.

U.S. Seeks to Keep Korean Tension From Escalating to Conflict, Mullen Says

The U.S. is trying to prevent North Korea’s attack on a South Korean island from escalating into a more significant conflict, said Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“We’re very focused on restraint and not letting this thing get out of control,” Mullen told CNN in an interview scheduled for broadcast tomorrow on “Fareed Zakaria GPS” and posted on the network’s Website. “The South Koreans so far have responded that way. Nobody wants this thing to turn into a conflict.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF what Mullen is saying is true, why has there been no emergency meeting at the UN Security Council?

Why has there been no immediate and direct communication from the US to Chinese officials, in light of the fact that North Korea is a client state of China?

As reported today at: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3990723,00.html

"China said on Sunday it wants emergency consultations among six governments involved in talks aimed at ending North Korea's nuclear programme, adding that the consultations would not amount to a full restart of the stalled negotiations.

The call was made by a senior Chinese diplomat, Wu Dawei, at a brief news conference. The talks bring together North and South Korea, host China, the United States, Japan and Russia."

U.S, South Korea War Games To Go On After Deadly North Korea Shelling [UPDATE: South Korean Military Reports Artillery Fire]

China's State Councilor Dai Bingguo, a senior foreign policy adviser, met with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak in Seoul, according to Lee's office, which provided no details. South Korea's Yonhap news agency said they discussed the North Korean attack and how to ease tensions.

The meeting followed similar discussions Saturday between Dai and South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan, according to Seoul's Foreign Ministry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that one of China's top diplomats met with both South Korea's Foreign Minister and President indicates that neither country wants the situation with the North to escalate: these meetings are very significant.

Unfortunately, however, it is the US which appears to be salivating for a way to create a military confrontation against China. The US cannot possibly pay China back all the money it has borrowed to fund its perpetual war machine. China refused to revalue its currency at the G20, China and Russia have dropped the dollar in their economic dealings with each other, and now France's Sarcozy wants to include China's currency in a "basket" of currencies to replace the dollar as the reserve currency.

Additionally, there are those in the bowels of power in DC who believe that a war would distract people in the US from their current economic misery. I would like to strongly suggest to those people that this is a highly unlikely scenario.

US Government seizure of the internet has begun; DHS takes over 76 websites

As part of a new expansion of government power over information, the Department of Homeland Security has begun seizing and shutting down internet websites (web domains) without due process or a proper trial. DHS simply seizes web domains that it wants to and posts an ominous "Department of Justice" logo on the web site.

Over 75 websites were seized and shut down last week, and there is no indication that the government will stop such efforts. Right now, their focus is websites that they claim "violate copyrights," yet the torrent-finder.com website that was seized by DHS contained no copyrighted content whatsoever. It was merely a search engine website that linked to destinations where people could access copyrighted content. Google also links to copyrighted content -- does that mean the feds will soon seize Google, too?

And for what? This is a training and conditioning exercise you fools! This has nothing to do with making us safer, national security or protecting America. It has nothing to do with making your flight safer. It has everything to do with conditioning you to accept a full body assault as long as the persons doing it are wearing a government badge.

How secure is your cash in Irish banks

The economic crisis in Ireland is causing near-panic among the 2.3 million British savers who have billions of pounds on deposit in bonds and accounts with the country's banks. Protection schemes are in place, but concerns are growing over whether the Irish scheme would have sufficient cash to pay out in the event of a bank default.

Even if it does, some experts believe savers should not be taking risks, especially if better rates can be found elsewhere with traditional British banks and building societies.

It now looks likely Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish Bank will be part or fully nationalised. Anglo Irish was nationalised in September after its collapse. It is expected Allied will be fully nationalised with Dublin taking an 85 per cent stake in Bank of Ireland. This should mean a default is unlikely but the guarantee is only as strong as the Irish government itself.
With fears that the crisis may spread to Portugal and even Spain, savers in other foreign-owned banks are being urged to consider moving their money to safer organisation

1) Restore pre-Reagan top tax rates. We didn't have massive deficits until we reduced the top tax rates.

2) Income is income. No more reduced capital gains tax rate. The incentive to invest should be to make a bunch of money from a good investment. The reason there is a low capital gains tax rate is that the wealthy get most of their income from capital gains. And the reason they get most of their income from capital gains is there is a low capital gains rate. The resulting income shifting schemes are a drag on the rest of us. (Also applies to dividends.)

Maliki wants foreign troops out of Iraq

Iraq's recently-reinstated prime minister has warned against any extension to the foreign presence on the strife-weary country's soil.

Nouri al-Maliki, who was mandated earlier in the month to remain premier for another four years, said on Saturday, "I do not feel the need for the presence of any other international forces to help Iraqis control the security situation," the Associated Press reported.

"The security agreement with what it included of dates and commitments will remain valid," he said.

The remarks were reportedly some of the harshest the Iraqi leader had ever addressed to Washington.

Under the arrangement, the almost 50,000 US soldiers deployed in Iraq, are expected to withdraw by the end of 2011.

Prognosis 2012: Towards a New World Social Order

The United States does not control its own destiny. Rather it is controlled by an international financial elite, of which the American branch works out of big New York banks like J.P. Morgan Chase, Wall Street investment firms such as Goldman Sachs, and the Federal Reserve System. They in turn control the White House, Congress, the military, the mass media, the intelligence agencies, both political parties, the universities, etc. No one can rise to the top in any of these institutions without the elite’s stamp of approval.

...Rather the key is monetary reform, whether at the local or national levels. People have lost control of their ability to earn a living. But change could be accomplished through sovereign control by people and nations of the monetary means of exchange.

Exposing 8th grade US History textbook lies in wars, money, and power

The following is what I wrote and delivered to meeting participants concerning our school’s 8th grade US History text; a leading national textbook. Surprisingly, the textbook company author in attendance was in agreement (this person co-authored the 7th grade text).

We’re developing primary source documents for our students to read and then compare to the text’s account of history to see these lies of omission and commission for themselves.

North Korea lost 30% of its population as a result of US bombings in the 1950s

The World is at a dangerous crossroads.

From the Truman Doctrine to Obama. The history of the 1950s Korean confirms that extensive war crimes were committed against the Korean people. As confirmed by the statement of General Curtis Lemay:

"Over a period of three years or so we killed off - what - twenty percent of the population."

North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s. US military sources confirm that 20 percent of North Korea's population was killed off over a three period of intensive bombings:

FBI Arrests Supposed Terrorist in Oregon Bomb Plot

FBI agents arrested a Somali-born teenager on Saturday for what they described as planning a “spectacular terrorist attack.” The suspect was apprehended as he attempted to set off a bomb near a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland Oregon.

The FBI has a record of supplying supposed terrorists with fake and sometimes real explosives. The case of Mohamed Osman Mohamud seems to line up directly with the FBI helping along a terrorist who essentially becomes a terrorist after the FBI starts their investigation.

The FBI is planning further raids on hedge funds suspected of involvement in an insider trading scam, as a three-year investigation enters its final stages, with prosecutors aiming to make arrests and lay charges within the next few weeks.

Wall St is braced for further revelations, even as traders complain federal authorities may be widening the definition of insider trading and conducting fishing expeditions against powerful hedge fund managers, such as Steven Cohen of SAC Capital.

Time For I Told You So; And for war…It’s inevitable now

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so war is inevitable. But if we are a free people then we have the freedom to decide for ourselves just who we shall make war on. Shall we spend our blood making war on the enemies the bankers have chosen for us, or are we, like the people of Europe, better off making war on the bankers?

The U.S. Economy: Stand by for more worse news

A top economic adviser to the Democratic Party, speaking on deep background, told WMR that the domino-like collapse of the economies of Iceland, Greece, Ireland, and, now, possibly Spain, is coming also to the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The globalists wanted a planet free of economic borders. They got it. And now that the planet is free of such borders, like a building free of fireproof doors or a ship free of watertight bulkheads, the entire structure is in danger of total destruction.

Thanks a lot, bozos. You wanted to stand atop a pyramid built to your vanity and scream that you were kings of the world. But history will record that you were the doom of the world.

Next Debt Crisis May Start in Washington

The US needs to take urgent action to cut its debt in order to prevent the next financial crisis, which may start in Washington, Sheila Bair, chair of the Federal Deposits Insurance Corp. (FDIC) wrote in an editorial in the Washington Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US debt crisis began in Washington with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. The instant that bill became law the nation's doom was sealed!

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” -- Woodrow Wilson 1919

TSA Worker Accused Of Assault Had Prior Record

Channel 2 Action News has learned a TSA security worker accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a woman had previously been convicted of misdemeanor harassment and stalking.

Randall King remains hospitalized following a suicide attempt. Police said last Wednesday, King agreed to drive a woman home from the airport. Instead, investigators said King took her to a MARTA station parking lot and placed novelty handcuffs on her.

Investigators said he drove her 50 miles away to his home in Troup County and sexually assaulted her. The woman told police that King gave her a suicide note, his car and let her go, investigators said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, this tells us that the TSA isn't doing a very good job of checking out their own hires. So much for claims that this is all being done for reasons of security! Are they at least making sure that these perverts panting onto our private parts don't have communicable diseases?

President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -

1. denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)
2. on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on
3. having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.

President Roosevelt's Campaign To Incite War in Europe: The Secret Polish Documents

Much has already been written about Roosevelt's campaign of deception and outright lies in getting the United States to intervene in the Second World War prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Roosevelt's aid to Britain and the Soviet Union in violation of American neutrality and international law, his acts of war against Germany in the Atlantic in an effort to provoke a German declaration of war against the United States, his authorization of a vast "dirty tricks" campaign against U.S. citizens by British intelligence agents in violation of the Constitution, and his provocations and ultimatums against Japan which brought on the attack against Pearl Harbor -- all this is extensively documented and reasonably well known.[1]

What Good Is Wall Street? Much of what investment bankers do is socially worthless.

....In a recent article titled “What Do Banks Do?,” which appeared in a collection of essays devoted to the future of finance, Turner pointed out that although certain financial activities were genuinely valuable, others generated revenues and profits without delivering anything of real worth—payments that economists refer to as rents. “It is possible for financial activity to extract rents from the real economy rather than to deliver economic value,” Turner wrote. “Financial innovation . . . may in some ways and under some circumstances foster economic value creation, but that needs to be illustrated at the level of specific effects: it cannot be asserted a priori.”

Turner’s viewpoint caused consternation in the City of London, the world’s largest financial market. A clear implication of his argument is that many people in the City and on Wall Street are the financial equivalent of slumlords or toll collectors in pin-striped suits. If they retired to their beach houses en masse, the rest of the economy would be fine, or perhaps even healthier.

Obama the Bomber Thanksgiving of the Drones

The Bush bomber handed over to the Obama bomber, to win the 'War on Terror’ to save America from destruction by evil Islamists.

Johnson and Nixon ordered mega-deaths by bombing, and lied about their illegal barbarity, and didn’t care how many people died in their ferocious onslaughts. Half a century later, the bombs continue to hail down, killing at the whim of those who command their carnage. Cambodia collapsed into bloody revolution and genocide. Presumably that’s what Obama wants for Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Take a good, hard look at those dead kids whose pictures top this article.

Famous Last Words: BP's Inside Game

In a rare display of emotion, Obama ranted for 20 straight minutes. The target of his anger wasn't BP but the press. He fumed that he was being unfairly portrayed as being remote and indifferent to the mounting crisis in the Gulf. "Hell, this isn't our mess," Obama railed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes Obama, it is your mess. You are the President. You wanted the job and now you have it and a big part of that job, indeed the largest, is to make sure this country is running efficiently and smoothly and safely. Even as you came into office it was known that the Minerals Management Service, supposedly the protector of America's interests with regards to oil exploitation, was corrupt, lazy, and failing to enforce the existing safety regulations. Your first job, before that bible was even cold, should have been to start firing the governmental incompetents and replacing them with men and women who understood that they were not working for benefit of the oil companies (who dopnated so generously to your campaign), but the people of the United States.

But you did not do that.

So yes, President Pansy, this is indeed your mess!

Portuguese austerity plan, imminent Irish bailout deal fail to alleviate European debt crisis

The Euro, like the dollar, is a boat with ten holes and only nine corks, and the "bailouts" are simply yanking a cork from one hole and pounding it into another in front of the assembled media while proclaiming that one is "doing something" about the sinking ship.

Afghanistan is About Perpetual War

The war in Afghanistan is about perpetual war, not Afghanistan.

It’s about preventing democracy in the United States, not bringing it to Southwest Asia.

And it is the tombstone of the Obama Presidency.

To justify the fight, they’ve rounded up the usual suspects: Terror. Oil. Minerals. Poppies. Democracy.

It keeps the public frightened and dependent.

For a truly prosperous society, educated and secure, cannot be ruled by the few. Poverty, ignorance and fear are the three pillars of authoritarian control. Without war, they all disappear.

Thus Afghanistan. Before it: the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, central America. After: whoever else is handy.

Protesters hit Italian streets a 2nd day

Students and teachers opposed to government reforms took to the streets for a second day Thursday, staging protests in cities across Italy, authorities said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The so-called "Clash of civilizations" is really a clash of banking systems, with the private central bank model attempting to impose itself on the rest of the world as it already did the United States and Eurozone. The bankers figured this would be easy since they were able to fool the public into helping them try to force Germany back into using the imposed central banking system of the Wiemar Republic.

Of course, it took a World War for the bankers to succeed in getting Germany off a state-issued currency. But then no number of other peoples' lives are too great a price to pay to ensure a cascade of debt created with nothing more costly than ink and paper. Apparently, the bankers are ready to play that same dirty trick again, this time against China.

However, while the media might have succeeded in concealing the true reasons for WW2 and the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy from the American people, the situation is decidedly different today. Time makes ancient truth uncouth, and it will be impossible for the bankers to talk the planet into a new world war to force the private central bank model on the rest of the world, when the people of the US and Eurozone understand clearly that it is that very same private central bank model that has impoverished the general population to enrich themselves; that is it that same predatory private central bank model that is the enemy of all the people of the world!

In daring greatly to bring about a global government to enforce a global private bank, it appears they may have triggered a truly global revolution against all private banks!

NATO and South Asian security: NATO Plants Itself In South Asia For The Long Haul

Overarching these considerations comes the U.S. strategy visualising NATO as the provider of security to the Silk Road that transports the multi-trillion dollar mineral wealth in Central Asia to the world market via the port of Gwadar. The Afghan-Pakistan trade and transit agreement concluded last month was a historic milestone and was possible only because of Washington's sense of urgency. Without doubt, Pakistan is assured of a key role in the U.S. regional strategy. This will keep foreign money flowing into Pakistan's economy and the Pakistani military will willingly accelerate the partnership programmes with NATO, and even upgrade them.

The Threat of War in Korea: Philippines prepares for possible mass evacuation from S.Korea, requests Japan's aid

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious, by both the holding of these talks, and the reporting of them by Japan's NHK, that the governments of both Japan and the Phillipines believe that renewed war between North and South Korea is imminent.

Torture Tort Terror

An administration truly concerned about excessive secrecy would have waited to see if either side in the lawsuit actually needed privileged information to make its case. Instead Obama, like George W. Bush before him, insisted that the mere possibility was enough to deprive torture victims of a legal remedy.

Given President Obama’s plans to continue extraordinary rendition under a different name, you can see why he’d rather not delve into questions like these. But candidate Obama told us to be wary of presidents who use national security as a cover for violating people’s rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'd almost be willing to bet that you didn't see anything that last paragraph had to say in any US Corporate media outlet!

But as reported today at:


"Barack Obama to allow anti-terror rendition to continue"

"Despite ordering the closure of Guantanamo and an end to harsh interrogation techniques, the new president has failed to call an end to secret abductions and questioning."

"According to a detailed reading of the executive orders signed by Mr Obama on Jan 22, renditions have not been outlawed, with the new administration deciding it needs to retain some devices in Mr Bush's anti-terror arsenal amid continued threats to US national security."

So let me get my head around this: under Obama's watch, the US is still outsourcing torture?!?!?

This is unflipping believable, particularly since humankind has known from the time of the Catholic inquisition, that torture only gets someone to confess to having committed a pre-ordained list of crimes to get the torture to stop; but torture never gets a person to tell the truth.

Iceland Is No Ireland as State Free of Bank Debt, Grimsson Says

Iceland’s President Olafur R. Grimsson said his country is better off than Ireland thanks to the government’s decision to allow the banks to fail two years ago and because the krona could be devalued.

“The difference is that in Iceland we allowed the banks to fail,” Grimsson said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Mark Barton today. “These were private banks and we didn’t pump money into them in order to keep them going; the state did not shoulder the responsibility of the failed private banks.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if we here in the USA follow the same wisdom of allowing the bankers to collapse from their own greed and mistakes, and not loot the people to prop them up and save them from their own criminality, we too will be better off!

US Marines Shrug Off Afghan Anger at Civilians Killings

As Taliban leadership admonish their fighters to avoid civilian deaths, locals in the Sangin District of Afghanistan’s Helmand Province are increasingly angry, complaining that the US Marines who recently took over the district have been regularly killing the civilians and refusing to investigate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, every civilian death may well drive many of those left standing into the waiting embrace of the Taliban.

Now, in the Orwellian language of US foreign policy, "protecting" civilians in Afghanistan apparently now translates as "killing them".

One is reminded of the response of the Papal legate at the Siege against the Cathars at Montsegur in 1244. When informed that there were women and children with the men here, the Papal legate's response was: "kill them all: God will find His own."

Israeli fire wounds Gaza child: officials

A 12-year-old boy gathering gravel near the Gaza-Israel border was wounded on Saturday by Israeli army fire, officials and witnesses said.

The boy was shot in the leg as he foraged for building materials near the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahiya, the officials said.

Gaza teenagers regularly risk injury or death to search for gravel in the ruins of abandoned Israeli settlement buildings along their side of the frontier, despite a strict 300-metre Israeli-imposed exclusion zone.

Building materials are scarce in the coastal strip due to Israeli sanctions and gravel finds a ready cash market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How butch the IDF is, shooting, wounding, and killing children desperately trying to make a living!

What kind of monsters are these people?!?!?

This kid, and the kids of his age like him, should be in school, preparing for their lives ahead, living in a secure, stable enviornment.

Oh, I forgot: the Israelis, in their infinite benevolence, have destroyed many of the schools in Gaza, and refused to allow for their rebuilding.

As reported on 26 November, 2010 at:


"For most other rights, realizing them depends on education. It's "the primary vehicle by which economically and socially marginalized adults and children can lift themselves out of poverty and obtain the means to participate fully in their communities."

Israel, however, impedes or denies it through various means, including movement restrictions, a classroom shortage, and relentless persecution, arresting over 6,000 children since 2000 and intimidating the entire Palestinian population.

Moreover, especially in Gaza, shortages of books and basic supplies exist. Foreign travel is also restricted or denied. In addition, military operations and displacements take their toll, including raids on hundreds of schools and eight or more universities, arresting students, teachers, professors, and/or other staff. Further, destroyed or damaged Gaza schools haven't been rebuilt or repaired."

Welcome to the "new normal" for Palestinian kids in Gaza!

French G20 agenda to push bigger yuan role

Weaning the global monetary system off its reliance on the dollar has eluded policy makers for decades, but the wind may now be blowing in France's favour as it seeks to build a consensus for change.

Finding ways to diversify countries' international reserves away from the US currency is a key part of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's plan to sketch out a blueprint for a more stable monetary system during France's year-long presidency of the Group of 20 nations, which began this month.

In the wake of the 2008-09 global financial crisis, France, which has long argued dollar volatility damages European economies, is finding common cause with emerging powers such as China and Brazil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the reasons the US government may be seeking a military confrontation with China, under the guise of responding to North Korea's shelling of a South Korean island last week.

Unfortunately, unless this is an absolute blitzkrieg, there is no way the US can actually win such a war; we don't begin to have the troop strength in our military, already weakened by two wars going horrendously badly, and most of our manufacturing has been offshored.

Winning the Class War

The class war that no one wants to talk about continues unabated.

Even as millions of out-of-work and otherwise struggling Americans are tightening their belts for the holidays, the nation’s elite are lacing up their dancing shoes and partying like royalty as the millions and billions keep rolling in.

What’s really needed is for working Americans to form alliances and try, in a spirit of good will, to work out equitable solutions to the myriad problems facing so many ordinary individuals and families. Strong leaders are needed to develop such alliances and fight back against the forces that nearly destroyed the economy and have left working Americans in the lurch.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The author's suggestions sound great.

Unfortunately, the government has aligned with the very wealthy of this country, and will suppress any attempt by the people to begin to resolve the fundamental infrastructure problems we face as a society; violently, if necessary.

Think that sort of governmental response "couldn't happen here"?!?

As reported on 30 October 2009 at: http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/usnews/politics/2195-barack-obama-continues-bush-administration-policy-regarding-posse-comitatus

"Barack Obama Continues Bush Administration Policy Regarding Posse Comitatus"

"It has been just over one year since the U.S. Army announced that the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team was being placed under the direct control of the US Army Northern Command (NORTHCOM), and was being indefinitely reassigned as an “on-call federal response force” for emergencies of all sorts, natural and man-made, including terrorist attacks, within NORTHCOM's area of responsibility — the United States, Mexico, and Canada."

"Although the assignation went mostly unheralded at the time, it marked the first time in the history of the United States that an active unit of the regular Army was placed under the immediate and exclusive command of NORTHCOM."

"The number of uniformed soldiers assigned to this duty continues to increase annually and the force is estimated to reach a strength of 20,000 by the year 2011. This massive force will all be trained and equipped to “subdue unruly or dangerous individuals” and “help with civil unrest and crowd control.” As usual, these directives are vague and could be applied to any number of scenarios. Furthermore, the critical question to be asked in light of such an arrangement is who will decide who is unruly or dangerous? Whoever is appointed the arbiter of such things will of necessity be feared as he will have 20,000 troops on alert and ready to quell these civil disturbances."

Folks, take a good, hard look at a calendar: we are just a little over one month away from the start of 2011.

Russian, Chinese Foreign Ministers Urge End to Korean Peninsula Escalation

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Chinese counterpart, Yang Jiechi, called for efforts to prevent further escalation on the Korean peninsula.

The two men also stressed the need “to work toward easing the tension between the two Korean parties as well as for a resumption of six-party talks” in a telephone conversation today, according to an e-mailed statement from the Foreign Ministry in Moscow.

Earlier this week, Lavrov condemned the North Korea shelling while saying that South Korea had ignored a request to cancel military exercises. Yang called on North Korea and South Korea to remain calm, exercise restraint and resolve the situation through dialogue, China’s Foreign Ministry said on its website yesterday

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "call for restraint" is meant directly for the US government.

And note that this article doesn't mention that North Korea responded to a provocation by the South, courtesy of the South's shelling into disputed waters.

"Restraint" is the absolute antithesis of the US government's approach to the situation, in light of the fact that it has ordered the carrier group USS George Washington and 4 smaller warships into the region for exercises, which are due to begin in about 9 hours from now.

N.Korea issues warning ahead of US-S.Korean exercises

North Korea warned Saturday of "unpredictable consequences" if the United States and South Korea go ahead with naval exercises in the Yellow Sea, days after launching a deadly attack on the South.

The USS George Washington aircraft carrier and its battle group were planning four days of exercises with South Korea from Sunday as a show of force after Pyongyang stunned the world with its artillery strike.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

North Korea retaliated against a South Korean military exercise on Tuesday, when the South Koreans refused to stop shelling into disputed waters.

In light of the fact that the South Korean people are (allegedly) screaming for blood in this circumstance, coupled with the intense pressure the South Korean government has faced about its not taking a harder line against North Korea, 4 days' worth of military exercises gives a lot of time for something to go horrendously wrong, or for something to provoke a military reaction from North Korea.

Even though the US government has stated that "...the manoeuvre is "defensive in nature", was planned before North Korea's attack, and is not aimed against China", if there is a military confrontation between the US/South Korea and North Korea, China will be dragged in on North Korea's side due to treaty obligations.

In light of its own financial woes, don't bet that the US isn't counting on this to happen.

Homeland Security shuts down dozens of Web sites without court order

The Homeland Security Department's customs enforcement division has gone on a Web site shutdown spree, closing down at least 76 domains this week, according to online reports.

While many of the web domains were sites that trafficked in counterfeit brand name goods, and some others linked to copyright-infringing file-sharing materials, at least one site was a Google-like search engine, causing alarm among web freedom advocates who worry the move steps over the line into censorship.

All the shut sites are now displaying a Homeland Security warning that copyright infringers can face up to five years in prison

America's Misconception of Freedom

S. Paul Forrest
Activist Post

America was founded in an attempt to escape the oppression of not only religious expression, but also the misrepresentation from a monarchist system that cared only for the proliferation and interests of the elite class.

After 250 years, we have found ourselves in the same position as those who left Europe for these shores so long ago: oppressed by a system that only wants to serve itself before the citizens who support it. They say history repeats itself, and nowhere is this more evident than in the case of modern America’s politicians, putting their corporate puppet masters and damaging agenda of faux patriotism before the needs of the people . . .

FLASHBACK - The FBI Allowed the 1993 WTC Bombing to Happen

After the bombing, he resumed his undercover work. In an undated transcript of a conversation from that period, Mr. Salem recounts a talk he had had earlier with an agent about an unnamed F.B.I. supervisor who, he said, "came and messed it up."

"He requested to meet me in the hotel," Mr. Salem says of the supervisor.

"He requested to make me to testify, and if he didn't push for that, we'll be going building the bomb with a phony powder, and grabbing the people who was involved in it. But since you, we didn't do that."

The transcript quotes Mr. Salem as saying that he wanted to complain to F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington about the Bureau's failure to stop the bombing, but was dissuaded by an agent identified as John Anticev.

A mass exodus of North Korean workers from the Far East of Russia is under way, according to reports coming out of the region. As the two Koreas edged towards the brink of war this week, it appears that the workers in Russia have been called back to aid potential military operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

North Korean leadership may be many things, but they are not foolish.

They understand, with absolute clarity, that the US is getting ready to launch a war against both North Korea and China, using the US's client state, South Korea, to begin the provocations, as it did last week.

The reasons?!?

1. At the last G20, China refused to revalue their currency on America's demands that they do so.

2. It is impossible for the US to pay back the trillions of dollars it has borrowed from China to finance its immoral and illegal wars around the world.

3. China and Russia have just dumped the dollar as a medium of exchange in business transactions.

FBI thwarts terrorist bombing attempt at Portland holiday tree lighting, authorities say

A Corvallis man, thinking he was going to ignite a bomb, drove a van to the corner of the square at Southwest Yamhill Street and Sixth Avenue and attempted to detonate it.

However, the supposed explosive was a dummy that FBI operatives supplied to him, according to an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint signed Friday night by U.S. Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, unable to find any real terrorists, the FBI keep setting up these patsies to take a fall.

The FBI are not discovering terrorists, just incredible dumb and gullible losers!

A Majority Of Americans Believe The US Government No Longer Operates Within The Constitution

A rather indicative poll released by Rasmussen earlier this week finds that a majority of Americans (44%) now believe that the government operates outside the confines of the Constitution, compared to just 39% who believe government does not take liberties with the precepts laid out by the founding fathers (and 17% were busy watching dancing with the stars to have an opinion either way). Some other unflattering findings on US democracy: "Earlier surveys have shown that just one-in-five voters believe that the government today has the consent of the governed. Forty-eight percent (48%) see the government as a threat to individual rights.

During the 33 day July 2006 War, Israeli forces refused orders to advance against Hezbollah fighters, happily opting for 14 day jail sentences for failure to obey orders.

Hezbollah, has smashed the myth of Israel’s invincibility, broken the barrier of fear, increased the popular demand for rORDE Ristance, exposed the fake peace process and rejected appeasement, acquiescence and surrender. Hezbollah forces taught the world that Arabs can and will liberate Palestine because they possess the qualities and acumen to do it. The kings and the presidents in the region, who for six decades chose their thrones over Jerusalem quake as does Israel.

Oregon: FBI Thwarts Own Car Bomb

Will Americans recoil in yet more contrived fear?

Tony Cartalucci, Contributing Writer -- Activist Post

The United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) claims to have thwarted their own car bomb Friday, November 26, 2010 at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon's Pioneer Courthouse Square.

A 19 year old man, Mr. Mohamed Osman Mohamud, was in contact with undercover FBI agents since June of 2010. FBI agents claim they were acting as an accomplice of a supposed Pakistani terrorist that Mr. Mohamud had been in contact with as early as 2008. Unlike the supposed Pakistani terrorist Mr. Mohamud was in contact with, the FBI actually supplied him with a bomb . . .

Debt turmoil, contagion fears sweep Europe

Barry Hatton
Associated Press

LISBON, Portugal – Europe struggled mightily Friday to keep the debt crisis from engulfing country after country. Portugal passed austerity measures to fend off the speculative trades pushing it toward a bailout and Ireland rushed to negotiate its own imminent rescue.

As Portugal and Spain insisted they will not seek outside help, creating an eery sense of deja-vu for investors, Europe braced for what seems inevitable — more expensive bailouts . . .

Doctors sound TSA germ alert Dangers include syphilis, lice, viruses, ringworm

Syphilis, lice, gonorrhea, ringworm, chlamydia, staph, strep, noro and papilloma viruses all are part of the possible fringe benefits when airline passengers next go through a full hands-on pat-down by agents of the federal government's Transportation Security Administration, according to doctors.

WND reported two days ago on alarmed passengers who noted that TSA agents doing the pat-downs that have been described by critics as molestation since they include touching private body parts were not changing gloves between passengers. In fact, some apparently were patting down dozens of passengers or more wearing the same gloves.

The Great Lie That Britain Would Suffer Outside the EU

BRITAIN would flourish as an international trading nation outside the economic shackles of the European Union, a leading business expert said last night.

Disputing the key argument of Euro-enthusiasts that quitting the EU would wreck the UK’s trade prospects, economist Ruth Lea said that independence from Brussels meddling would boost the country’s import and export markets.

TSA Administrative Directive: Opt-Outters To Be Considered “Domestic Extremists”

If the information recently acquired by Doug Hagmann of Northeast Intelligence Network is accurate, then something really big is happening in America right now - and it’s most certainly not a step towards individual liberty.

According to Mr. Hagmann, he was contacted by a source within the DHS who provided an alarming memo detailing a new administrative directive agreed upon by DHS chief Janet Napolitano and the head of TSA John Pistole. The memo, according to Doug Hagmann, “officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as ‘domestic extremists’.”
