10 Random Things That You Should Know About D.C.

You can read just about every policy and economics article in the past decade and still not get the complete picture of D.C. Some experiences can only be appreciated from the ground level by living in the metropolitan area itself. The point of this list is not to hit you with a bunch of statistics but just to give some day-to-day observations lending a closer look at our nation's capital.

Giving corporations an outsized voice in elections

Corporations are pitching a bizarre product -- a radical vision of the 1st Amendment. It would give corporations rather than voters a central role in our electoral process by treating corporate political spending as protected speech. If this vision becomes reality, businesses and other big-money players will spend billions either hyping their preferred candidates or running attack ads against elected officials who don't support their preferred agenda. Voters will be forced into a couch-potato role, mere viewers of the electoral spectacle bought and paid for by wealthy companies.

“Gaza” – The writings on the Wall

The American public and the more friendly members of Congress (if they exist) should now be asking many question regarding the change of US policy (or should I say aggression). Some of those questions could be along the following lines:

• Why would the US Army need to operate out of Israel?

• Who does the US Army perceive to be the enemy (Gaza, Lebanon or Syria)?

• Why would a requirement exist to stockpile in Israel when they have access to both Turkey on one side and Egypt and Jordan on the other?

• Will the arms that are intended for use by the IDF still be process via the President or Congress?

It is obvious that this new tactic is a way of smuggling (some would say gun running) weapons into Israel for their own usage against Gaza and Iran.

Reality check: If China "liberated" US like we "liberated" Iraq, here’s how we would look

*hyperlinks and videos live at source*

How bad is the death and injury toll in Iraq since the US invasion? Let’s extrapolate the data from Iraq onto the US and see the effects. Imagine that China is playing the role of the US and the US is in Iraq’s position. Several areas of data might need updating; I welcome your suggestions for any improvement.

Israel To Turkey:'We're Sorry'

Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister, Danny Ayalon, has made a formal apology to Ankara over his 'discourteous' conduct during a meeting with Turkey's ambassador to Tel Aviv in a row over a Turkish TV series.

"It is not my way to disrespect ambassadors' honor and in the future I will clarify my position in a diplomatically acceptable manner," Ayalon said in the statement.

Unprecedented Images Show Betelgeuse Has Sunspots

An international team of astronomers has obtained an unprecedented image of the surface of the red supergiant Betelgeuse, in the constellation Orion. The image reveals the presence of two giant bright spots, which cover a large fraction of the surface. Their size is equivalent to the Earth-Sun distance. This observation provides the first strong and direct indication of the presence of the convection phenomenon, transport of heat by moving matter, in a star other than the Sun.

Iranian Scientist Assassinated As US Steps Up War Threats

Massoud Ali Mohammadi, one of Iran’s leading nuclear scientists, was assassinated in Tehran Tuesday, just two days after the top US military commander in the region announced that the Pentagon has drawn up plans to bomb Iranian nuclear sites.

Iran’s senior prosecutor charged the US and Israel with responsibility for the attack. “Given the fact that Massoud Ali Mohammadi was a nuclear scientist, the CIA and Mossad services and agents most likely have had a hand in it,” the prosecutor, Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, told the state-run media.

Swine flu: can we have our £1 billion back now, please?

Journalist dies, oinking horribly, after failing to take Swine Flu seriously. That was the title I gave one of my first Telegraph blogs – April 27th 2009 – well aware that I was offering up a tremendous hostage to fortune. My how they would all have laughed darkly if I’d caught swine flu and died! But I didn’t, did I? And nor strangely did you.

The exercise, which will be the largest of its kind in Israel's history, will be carried out in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan and Holon, seeks to evaluate the ability of the Home Front, medical services, rescue teams and municipal authorities to respond to conditions created by a biological catastrophe caused either by terrorists or by some kind of accident.

Israel Gearing Up For Another July War With Lebanon

“We know Hezbollah is growing stronger with Syria's help, and occasionally with Iran's assistance,” Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said during a tour of the northern border on Tuesday.

"Should the (security) situation deteriorate, we'll hold the Lebanese government and all those who help Hezbollah responsible," said Barak at an Israeli occupation army outpost overlooking south Lebanon's villages.

Who else but Fox News would have Sarah Palin?

Palin fits in totally at Fox – standing up for ignorance and stupidity.

Sarah Palin has signed a multiyear deal to work as a “contributor” to the Fox News Channel. Thing is, the number of people who watch Fox News in Canada is so tiny that it never even registers in the ratings here.

The Criminal Nature of the Zionist Controlled Press

"Paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell."
- Hugo Black, Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (1886-1971)

Gerald Manuel Levin, a Zionist Freemason of the B'nai B'rith, took over CNN from Ted Turner, which was the last U.S. mass media news outlet in the hands of a non-Jew.

TRANSLATED: Pakistani Op-Ed: "the US is taking out its anger on us"

...A flagrant violation of Pakistan's sovereignty, these strikes speak volumes about the Obama Administration's unilateralist policies and military adventurism resembling the situation in Afghanistan where thousands of civilians have been crushed to death so far, thanks to a joystick controlled thousands of miles away in the US and raining missiles on a hapless population. Since the first strike in Damodola back in 2006, countless Pakistani civilians have lost their lives. Just the previous year, reports have it that around 700 people were killed in 44 strikes, only five of which had hit actual targets. What the US falsely reports as militants' compounds usually turn out to be houses belonging to innocent families having no connection with extremists.

Britain Should be Run as a Workshop, Not a Casino

Censorship in real time: The article by the title above had a top-of-page quote above the the Haiti quake news. I clicked on it and found a brilliant guest opinion piece which I decided to post on WRH by the time I was done reading it. It made scathing comments about British bankers and leadership. But before I could finish posting, the article had been sent to the memory hole. Here is the quote I copied from it:
