Beware of Facebook's Beacon?

The new Facebook advertising system, codenamed Beacon, represents an innovative approach to online marketing, but it also marks an additional step in the ongoing erosion of consumer privacy.

There are two primary aspects of the new Facebook ad system. The first is the expansion of the "friends" concept so that you can be friends (articulated as Fans) of a brand or company. Any company or organization can now establish a profile on Facebook and solicit support from other users. Each time a user adds the company as a friend, their connections are notified that they support that brand.

Only Israel has the penetration of the Department of Defense that would allow this kind of spying. Not only can they do it, they also have so many spies in the American chain of command, they could easily prevent it. Who has the facilities to gather and filter this much data? Who would want to?

With the biggest story in Iraq the falsified intelligence on “weapons of mass destruction,” why didn’t Wikileaks get us documents on this?

Exposing this real Iraq scandal would do some good, except for one thing, friends of Israel inside the Pentagon were the creators of this program. Is this why Wikileaks dodges the real issues? Is it because the trail for much of what happened in Iraq heads directly to Tel Aviv?

Did You Know: The King of Madrasas Now Operates Over 100 Charter Schools in the US?

Okay, let’s recap and pay attention to the absurdity:

Here is a Turkish Muslim preacher who fled Turkey after his alleged intentions to replace the secular government with one based on Sharia laws were exposed. He comes to the US, settles here, and starts taking advantage of our vastly and overly used nonprofit laws to build his network of dubious NGOs. Meanwhile he continues to expand his network of Madrasas and related businesses overseas-Central Asia, Caucasus, Balkans, etc.

After years of investigating him the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, due to his guardian angels in the State Department and the CIA, are prevented from bringing an indictment against him, so they try to kick him out of the US. But once again Gulen’s CIA angels step in and portray Gulen as a scholar, despite the fact that Fethullah Gulen doesn’t even have a high-school diploma and never went beyond the 5th grade. Among his angels who vouched for him were Graham Fuller, George Fidas, and Morton Abramowitz.

Tarpley: US exports depression to China

If you look at the global economy and take a look at growth, China is in the lead and in some cases is leaving the world in the dust. Is China to blame for the recession in the United States and has the US declared economic warfare? Maybe it is time for America to take a page out of China's playbook for economic success. Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar and Investigative journalist Webster Tarpley join RT's Kristine Frazao to discuss the world's economy and Chinas place in it.

No coincidence - Assange and Gadahn's new "leaks"
Asking the fox to investigate the chicken house certainly won't result in any military or government heads rolling but for those who think Wikileaks is working for the CIA what is planned is that the Wikileaks Propaganda Helps Build A Case for Attacking Iran. With reports like "how Iran devised new suicide vest for al-Qaeda to use in Iraq," war crimes by the U.S. and/or Israel against Iran can be looked at as justifiable.
The Mossad front SITE[ ]most likely had the the latest Gadahn video 'in the can' and ready for release as soon as Wikileaks gave the world their Iraq 'leaks.'

America declared that ninety six percent of the Gulf of Mexico is open to fishing

The fact that 96% of the Gulf of Mexico is now open for fishing is scary. The chemicals from the dispersant used in the supposed clean up of the gulf mixed with the VOC’s are a very toxic combo.

The fact is that poisons and toxins have not only harmed humans, they have also caused massive fish kills and an untold number of wildlife deaths.

'Even if the Israelis confess, I don't expect any justice from them'

Maysa Samouni, whose husband Tawfiq, 21, was killed and baby daughter Jumana, now two, was injured in the building struck by missiles on 5 January, 2009, was unmoved yesterday by the progress of the investigation into the attack.

"The court wouldn't bring back my husband," she said. "Even if they [the Israelis] confessed that they shot at the warehouse crowded with the civilians, I didn't expect any justice from them."

French pension reform vote passed by parliament

The French parliament has narrowly given its approval to the pension reforms which have caused a wave of strikes, demonstrations and protests across France, leading to traffic chaos and petrol shortages.

The senate voted 177 to 153 to approve measures including a rise in the official retirement age from 60 to 62. The lower house, the national assembly, had earlier given its assent.

The vote came after the right-of-centre government of President Nicolas Sarkozy used emergency clauses in the constitution to push through the reforms. The reforms had stalled in the senate after opposition members tabled hundreds of amendments leading to three weeks of debate.

Cholera in Haiti blamed in deaths of more than 100

Haitian health officials are blaming the deaths of more than 100 people suffering from acute severe diarrhea and dehydration on an outbreak of cholera.

``For sure it is that,'' said a Ministry of Health official, who asked not to be identified because the government had yet to make an official announcement.

At least 1,000 people had been hospitalized in the lower Artibonite region in recent days, with the main hospital in St. Marc filled to capacity.

Weimar in Jerusalem: the rise of fascism in Israel

Yitzhak Herzog, the minister of welfare in the Netanyahu government, a member of the Labour party, the grandson of a chief rabbi and the son of a president, said a few days ago that "fascism is touching the margins of our society". He was wrong: fascism is not only touching the margins, it is touching the government in which he is serving, and the Knesset, of which he is a member.

UN Peacekeepers Complicit in Sex Trade

Unfortunately sexual abuse, rape, and sex trafficking are more commonplace than occasional, wherever Blue Helmets are deployed. Blue Helmet abuses, including trading food for sex with girls as young as eight in Liberia, said also to go on in Burundi, Ivory Coast, East Timor, DR Congo, Cambodia, and Bosnia. Various other reports were similar, abuses including sex with young girls, rape and trafficking.

Hate-filled Israeli rabbis incite violence against non-Jews

Israel appears to be awash with Jewish hate preachers. In the past, rabbis who issued racist edicts or offensive remarks about Palestinians or non-Jews were generally dismissed as radicals and extremists who were no more than a trifling annoyance to be ignored in the hope that they would simply go away. However, it is now clear that ignoring this problem has only made it worse.

Same Imperial leadership emerges from voter upheaval

WASHINGTON — Change at the top? Not necessarily.

Whichever party controls the House and Senate after the Nov. 2 election probably will install the same leaders whose policymaking helped bring about the sour economy, nearly double-digit unemployment and deficit spending that has led voters to call for fresh faces.

If people are becoming desensitized to the terrorist threat, give them something new to be scared of!
