Pointing out a major government fraud today has become nearly impossible, because all government fraud is, by definition, a conspiracy. Since conspiracies get a bad name, mentioning any "government fraud" triggers a negative reaction, even for those frauds already proven true.

Teaching 9/11, JFK assassination, in schools as critical thinking case studies

*hyperlinks live at source*

The following is my best academic approach for how academic professionals interested in controversial current events and history can teach them. When I teach history courses, I open the conversation with a challenge to students: "If you could know anything in history, if you could learn what really happened, what would you want to know?" I have them think, reflect, and then offer to have supplemental teaching units on whatever the class votes as their topics of greatest interest as a "reward" if their academic progress in the regular curriculum is on-pace and meets our academic target for class GPA success as a class (economics of incentives in action).

BUSTED: TARP-Loving, Wall Street Puppets - New GOP Leadership Caught On Tape

In the GOP's "Pledge to America," there's a lot of talk about bailouts and free markets, but many of those Republicans currently bitching about TARP and bailouts and claiming the Tea Party mantle for themselves, are the same Republicans who VOTED "YES" on TARP.

They join five other legislators who also backed TARP but lost earlier this year in primary attempts.

I awake this morning in much the same state as I did the morning after June 8, 1967, the day Israel attacked my ship USS LIBERTY and killed 34 of my fellow crewmates–tense and jittery.

No, I am not hung over, nor do I have a drug problem. Rather, its just my sixth-sense, kept on a hair-trigger as a result of the 2 hour attack on my ship that almost killed me and destroyed the world. My antennae are real touchy these days and more in-tune with what is and has been happening to America since the beast was loosed from its cage in 1948 and sacrilegiously carved out of land that belongs to others.

Savoring Baghdad, Where Each Night Is a Battle

As Iraq’s violence ebbed, it seemed that the country’s tea-sipping, hookah-smoking revelers had reclaimed the evening hours, casting off the siege mentality of the war’s worst days as they repopulated nightclubs, speakeasies and public parks.

Then came a recent barrage of attacks that clawed apart scenes of Iraq’s reawakened nightlife. Insurgents blew up restaurants and cafes, public squares and shopping stalls, in what felt to many Iraqis like a deliberate attempt to drive them back behind their front gates after the sun sets.

Who benefits?

Morningland Dairy: 50,000 Pounds Of Cheese To Be Destroyed. It’s All Suspect….Or Is it Just Suspicious?

The issues that brought a tiny Missouri farmstead cheese plant to the forefront in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s war on raw dairy continue to expand, and trouble. As a wise man once said, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” The intrigue doesn’t dissipate at all with the increase in information regarding Morningland Dairy. The tests, methods and procedures that began this tragedy are very questionable.

Bloodied and shackled: Controversial cricket tycoon Allen Stanford beaten up by jail inmates as he awaits trial

Bloodied and bruised, this is the shocking picture of cricket tycoon Allen Stanford after a beating by jail inmates.

His neck in a brace, his eye bleeding and half-closed and his head bandaged.

The final humiliation for Stanford, 60, awaiting trial accused of masterminding a $7billion fraud, was his feet and hands were shackled as he was taken to hospital.

MSNBC's owners give millions in political contributions, but Olbermann suspended

After Politico's reporting that MSNBC host Keith Olbermann recently donated $7,200 to Democratic candidates, in violation of NBC's company rules that restrict employees from making political contributions, MSNBC president Phil Griffin suspended Olbermann indefinitely without pay. However, as reported by media watchdog, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR), it appears that MSNBC's parent company, General Electric (GE) along with potential new owner Comcast, both violated the company's "news policy and standards" by each donating millions of dollars in campaign contributions.

Little-Known 9/11 Truth Organization Strikes Gold in Court Action Against NIST, Unearths Striking Video/Photo WTC Evidence

Uncovering the data NIST used in its WTC investigations proved to be a little more difficult. The Center filed a FOIA Request with NIST on January 26, 2009, seeking disclosure of “all of the photographs and videos collected, reviewed, cited or in any other way used by NIST during its investigation of the World Trade Center building collapses.” NIST initially ignored this request, and for months dismissed attempts by the Center to gain acknowledgment of its receipt. Undeterred, Gourley filed a lawsuit on May 28, 2009 to get the data released. Since then, NIST has been periodically turning over images and video from its archives. So far, the Center has received over 300 DVDs and several external hard disk drives related to the NIST Reports – more than three terabytes of data – and NIST has indicated that additional records will be released in the future.

FLCOS Microdisplay Technology

Imagine a system that could switch frames so quickly that it could mix the red, green, and blue pixels over time, instead of space, to make a single color—much like a set of still images shown in quick succession fools the eye into seeing motion. This type of sequential color system would provide a full color pixel and increase image quality and color fidelity. But the light flow through each pixel must be controlled precisely and incredibly quickly—which is where our FLCOS technology shines.

Can't wait to see this on the next generation of Smart Phones

There Is No Truth

....and Jesus said, "The Truth Shall Set You Free."

The corollory of this, as Catholic Bishop Williamson pointed out in his series of sermons on Orwell's 1984, is that if we do not hold to the truth......


And so it is today.

There is no truth.

Every day of our lives, unremittingly, we are fed lies.

Lies, lies, lies.

Yesterday bomb experts at East Midlands airport, having examined the toner' devices' for six hours and found them to contain no explosives, suddenly re-inspected the packages and reversed their original judgement (in agreement with President Obama who had said, in his Friday speech at the White House, that they were bombs).

Debt Collection Company Was Using Fake Sheriffs, Judges and Courtroom To Scare Debtors

Now remember, citizens, it's the people who neglected to yank out their gold fillings to pay their credit card bills after they lost their jobs who are the real bad guys here. A debt is a debt, after all, and an honorable person would go without food or shelter to pay the crooks who are collecting the money!

When Single Moms Are Fined $1.5M, It's Time To Take A New Look At Copyright Protection In The Digital Age

First of all, it infuriates me that the federal government is working as private cops for the RIAA. Think about how they pushed through the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and forced the music and computer industries to use copy protection.

It also maddens me because the Founders only allowed ten year copyrights, after which the rights were turned over to the general public, to benefit from the work.

It's time to come up with a saner version of digital copyright, because this is crazy and wrong:

Obama: Myanmar elections 'neither free nor fair'

The first elections in military-ruled Myanmar in 20 years were "neither free nor fair," President Barack Obama said Sunday.

"For too long the people of Burma have been denied the right to determine their own destiny," he told students at St. Xavier College.

"Even as we do not impose any system of government on other countries, we must always speak out for those human rights that are universal and the right of people everywhere to make their own decision about how to shape their future," the president said.


The pot is calling the kettle black.

WA moves to tighten driver's license requirements

Beginning Monday, the state Department of Licensing will require proof of a valid Washington residence address if an applicant doesn't provide a verified Social Security number.

I'll not be giving out my Social Security number, that's for sure! I wonder if utility bills will be accepted.

Personally, I don't think there should be a government issued 'permission' (licence) to drive unless someone has shown a pattern of incompetence, then they need to be tested and licensed. If the pattern continues, then that licence can be revoked and they can be forbidden to drive. I think that's a much fairer system, but of course it's not about fairness... it's about collecting money for the bureaucracy!

One FLU Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

In the UK the HPA collects lab data of positive flu test results. In 2009 there were approximately 3000 influenza A test results and approximately 300 influenza B tests. There were about 105,000 cases of influenza like illnesses. So in comparison flu only made up 3% of flu like illnesses in the UK.
To summarize you are far more likely to catch a flu like illness rather than the flu, 97% of all ILI are not flu! Out of those 3300 who caught flu last year how many died? We don’t know because those details weren’t published in the HPA report. But the mortality rate of seasonal flu is 1% so can we assume 33 people died? So are we getting vaccines to prevent ourselves being one of the 33? Wow that’s playing it safe!

Airline frequent fliers 'radiation poisoning risks' from space 'solar flare' storm activity

Airline frequent fliers are at greater risk of developing long term radiation poisoning from “solar space storms” or flare activity from the Sun, a new study warns. (If the airport naked body scanners don't do it first -- Ed.)

Andrew Hough -- The Telegraph

Researchers found passengers faced the “hazard” of space radiation, which created unhealthy levels of exposure while flying at “typical cruise altitudes” of 40,000 feet.

Spokane Police emails reveal "cage fight" over pastor shooting report

More police friendliness:

A Sept. 6th email from Spokane Police Major Scott Stephens to Captain Steve Braun and Detective Dave McGovern is the first of several emails within the police department on the Creach investigation and making it public.
"...spoke with Chief Kirkpatrick...she has some concerns about this investigation...specifically the control of information," wrote Stephens.

Why would one want to control information that would exonerate one? One would only want to control information that incriminates... wouldn't one?
