"[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man – who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia." -- George Mason

WAITING FOR OBAMA’S CHANGE IN EAST JERUSALEM

The Hanoun and Gawi families, consisting of 16 and 38 members, respectively, lived in their homes for 53 years. Built in 1956 by the UN and the Jordanian government (who had sovereignty over East Jerusalem at the time) as part of a temporary housing complex for refugees of the 1948 war, these were homes for those who already knew eviction and ethnic cleansing.

However, this time the dispossession was accomplished “legally.”

Israeli Ambassador Claims 'UN's Gaza Report Written by Palestinians'

The latest United Nations anti-Israel report was written solely “to appease the Arab-controlled Human Rights Council,” Aharon Leshno Yaar, Israel’s ambassador to the UN in Geneva, claimed on Saturday.

He spoke with The Jerusalem Post by phone, a day after UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay submitted a report on what she termed “grave violations of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, particularly due to the recent Israeli military attacks against the occupied Gaza Strip.”

Deal: United States soldiers will deploy to Colombia

Some American troops will soon find themselves stationed at military bases scattered across the South American nation of Colombia with a mission to use advanced Predator drone technology to aid in fighting the drug trade and to combat terrorism, according to published reports Saturday.

But Colombia’s neighbors certainly do not see it that way.

The deal is worth over 40 million dollars for Bogota, along with expanded US military assistance for Bogota’s counternarcotics efforts, according to a US defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what the real motivation behind this deal would be.

Perhaps it's to keep an eye on the deals Russia is making in the region, on both energy issues and arms. Columbia shares borders with Venezeula, Brazil, and Peru.

As reported in

http://en.rian.ru/analysis/20090427

/121322702.html

"The increase in Russian deliveries to South America in recent years has largely been the result of one country's purchases: Venezuela. Until 2005, Venezuela's main suppliers of military equipment were the United States and Western Europe, which together accounted for 79 per cent of Caracas' imports for 1990-2005. Following the break-off in relations between Venezuela and the United States, and the imposition of an arms embargo by Washington, Caracas signed arms deals worth over $4.4 billion with Russia for 10 Mi-35 combat helicopters, 3 Mi-26 heavy transport helicopters, 40 Mi-17 multi-role helicopters, 100 000 AK-103 rifles, and 24 Su-30MK combat aircraft. The resulting deliveries account for 98 per cent of Russian transfers to Venezuela over the last five years. With 7 per cent of Russian arms exports, Venezuela was the fourth largest recipient of Russian exports, behind China (42 per cent), India (20 per cent) and Algeria (8 per cent)"

Helping Rich White People Kill Poor Brown People (For Money)

Not only is there more than a suggestion of violence in any SAS deployment, but it is hardly good role modeling for “the lawmakers” to breach the government’s Defence Policy Framework, and to put armed forces personnel in a situation where they are likely to be complicit in torture (which is prohibited in NZ law) and implicated in killing civilians (which is apparently permitted, providing it takes place overseas).

Never heard of it? Oh dear. It must be the only "hate" speech not yet on the government Index. If you didn't know it, our ruling class, for our own salvation and for the salvation of all men, has taken on the task of cleansing us of our own thoughts...and indeed, from thinking.

Admittedly, for a large number of people this would probably be a very good thing. But the rest of us would like to reclaim our cogitations, as well as the vocabulary in which we mutter them.

It's simple. No annexation, no Territory of Hawaii, no State of Hawaii. The 50th anniversary of statehood is a scam.

Nixon Ends Bretton Woods International Monetary System - Speech

On August 15, 1971, President Nixon announced on TV 3 dramatic changes in economic policy. He imposed a wage-price freeze. He ended the Bretton Woods international monetary system. And he imposed a temporary surcharge (tariff) on all imports. The Bretton Woods system was created towards the end of World War II and involved fixed exchange rates with the U.S. dollar as the key currency - but also a role for gold linked to the dollar at $35/ounce. The system began to falter in the 1960s because of an excess of dollars flowing out of the U.S. which foreign central banks had to absorb. A run on gold in 1968 was stemmed by a patch on Bretton Woods known as the two-tier gold system. All of this was ended unilaterally by the Nixon decision.

Woodstock: 40 Years Down The Road And A Nation Lost

If Woodstock itself was not the epitome of social protest and activism, the times surrounding it were. There was an immoral and unjustified US war and occupation a half a world away, there was a culture of government spying on its citizens and invasion of their privacy and there was a growing dichotomy in society. In short, eerily similar to what seems to be the case today. And there were people protesting. Loud and large. Out in the streets, on college campuses, in the public square. There was a lot of juice to the dissent and it was led by the youth, college students and academics.

Where are they today ? Where has the soul and conscience of our society gone? Where is the dissent; where is the beef? It is curiously and conspicuously absent from our analogous circumstance. There is so much wrong, on so many fronts; and yet there is so much talent and ability. People are sick and tired of the state of the nation; and yet the ability and gumption to mobilize and make a stand seems lost. Why?

Obama's Presidency: A Political and Moral Disappointment

It's all over town. Only the Obama administration does not want to hear it. The people responsible for the moral decay of U.S. foreign policy were the 'Bush-worriers': Vice President Dick Cheney and his President George W. Bush and all the other cronies. Why will Eric Holder investigate the poor CIA subordinates who just followed orders? The torture memos and all the other unconstitutional and partly criminal orders went all the way down the chain of command. The White House people were a gathering of political tricksters. The U.S. has no moral authority anymore, despite Obama, because his foreign policy has only been slightly different from his predecessor’s.

Our mountains are not for sale

Environmentalist Robert Kennedy, Jr., has called the practice of blasting tops off whole mountains and dumping the slag in the nearest valley, America’s worst environmental disaster. Like him, Alexander believes this gross technique must come to an end. The Cumberlands are among the most bio-diverse and beautiful eco-systems on earth.

Lands where mountaintop removal occurs become nearly lifeless in comparison to their pre-blasted state. Most of the flora and fauna that existed there for thousands or millions of years can no longer survive in the slag-heap once it’s been "reclaimed" by invasive species. The travesty sullies headwaters of dozens of streams that flow into the Tennessee, the Cumberland, the Obed and many other rivers.

Dostoyevsky on the Jewish Question

Fyodor Dostoyevsky left us a prophecy of the threat to Christian civilization by emancipated Jewry.

In his book, Diary Of A Writer, published in 1877, Dostoevsky penned a journal entry entitled "The Jewish Question." With alarming and frightening foresight, by which he penetrated into today’s events, Dostoevsky predicted a growing domination over social and political affairs by the Jews with their newly acquired rights:

“The Jews look forward to world domination. This requires them to maintain their own close-knit identity. If the Jews are given equal legal rights in Russia, but are allowed to keep their ‘State within a State,’ they would be more privileged than the Russians. The consequences of this situation are already clear in Europe.”

Obama's America is not delivering the goods

With great sorrow and deep consternation, we hereby declare the death of the latest hope. Perhaps rumors of its death are greatly exaggerated, to paraphrase the famous quote by Mark Twain, but the fears are being validated day after day. Barack Obama's America is not delivering the goods. Sharing a glass of beer with a racist cop and a pat on the back of Hugo Chavez are not what we hoped for; wholesale negotiations on freezing settlement construction are also not what we expected. Just over six months after the most promising president of all began his term, perhaps hope has a last breath left, but it is on its deathbed.

New battery could change world, one house at a time

Ceramatec says its new generation of battery would deliver a continuous flow of 5 kilowatts of electricity over four hours, with 3,650 daily discharge/recharge cycles over 10 years. With the batteries expected to sell in the neighborhood of $2,000, that translates to less than 3 cents per kilowatt hour over the battery's life. Conventional power from the grid typically costs in the neighborhood of 8 cents per kilowatt hour.

Re-read that last paragraph and let the information really sink in. Five kilowatts over four hours -- how much is that? Imagine your trash compactor, food processor, vacuum cleaner, stereo, sewing machine, one surface unit of an electric range and thirty-three 60-watt light bulbs all running nonstop for four hours each day before the house battery runs out.

He added, "The Jewish community is being persecuted, and this is one of many episodes. It's just another example of them making a big shtick over nothing. Where was the US government between 2003 and 2009? You would think they would have requested an extradition during that time."

Nuclear power's sick legacy

CO2 is not the only global warming gas emitted by nuclear power. The Pacudah enrichment plant in Kentucky, which processes uranium from many countries, including Australia, annually leaks 93 per cent of the CFC-114 gas released by the US. Banned under the Montreal protocol, CFC is a prodigious destroyer of the ozone layer and it also is a potent global warming agent.

Furthermore, nuclear reactors routinely emit large amounts of radioactive materials, including the fat-soluble noble gases xenon, krypton and argon. Deemed "inert" by the nuclear industry, they are readily inhaled by populations near reactors and absorbed into the bloodstream where they concentrate in the fat pads of the abdomen and upper thighs, exposing ovaries and testicles to mutagenic gamma radiation (like X-rays).

Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America

A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.

GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

Demolition Access To The WTC Towers: Part Two - Security Kevin Ryan 911 Essay

Who could have placed explosives in the World Trade Center (WTC) towers? This is the second essay in a series that attempts to answer that question. The first installment began by considering the tenants that occupied the impact zones and the other floors that might have played a useful role in the demolition of the WTC towers. [1] The result was a picture of connections to organizations that had access to explosive materials and to the expertise required to use explosives. Additionally it was seen that, in the years preceding 9/11, the impact zone tenants had all made structural modifications to the areas where the airliners struck the buildings.

The management representatives of these tenant companies were seen to be secretive and powerful. Through these powerful people, the tenants were connected to organizations that benefited greatly from the 9/11 attacks, including the defense contractors Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Halliburton, and Science Applications International Corp (SAIC). The tenants also had strong connections to the Bush family and their corporate network, including Dresser Industries (now Halliburton) and UBS, and to Deutsche Bank and its subsidiaries, reported to have brokered the insider trading deals. There were also links between these tenant companies and the terrorist-financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

A large United States Congressional delegation of Democrats blamed the Palestinian Authority for the stalemated diplomatic process at a news conference Thursday in Jerusalem .

Israeli Containment Strategy: Gaza Misery Used to Intimidate West Bankers

The siege on Gaza is a "primitive" form of containment, a simple repressive siege which has transformed the Gaza Strip into the world's largest prison. The people of Gaza are held as prisoners—by restricting them to a small location, and by strictly controlling everything going in or out of that area. Like in most prisons, a smuggling industry is thriving in Gaza and, like in most prisons, the prisoners are taught a cynical lesson that "might makes right."

Uranium Weapons - Does anyone care about our planet?

To date I have not heard from any of those who control the region or the media despite the fact that each and every day weapons with uranium components are being used. Each and every day people are dying from their usage and the medical statistics in each of their respective regions are showing sharp rises in many forms of cancers, diabetes, infertility and genetic mutations resulting in gross birth defects. I concluded my email to the above as follows: "All my emails to you will be kept on record as evidence that you all have been notified along with your respective lack of responses......maybe one day you will be called to give evidence in an International Court.......then what will you say?

-In addition to U.S. military officers and intelligence officers, "Unified Quest 2008" brought together participants from the State Department and other U.S. government agencies, academics, journalists, and foreign military officers (including military representatives from several NATO countries, Australia, and Israel), along with the private military contractors who helped run the war games: the Rand Corporation and Booz-Allen.

-The list of options for the Nigeria scenario ranged from diplomatic pressure to military action, with or without the aid of European and African nations. One participant, U.S. Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Mark Stanovich, drew up a plan that called for the deployment of thousands of U.S. troops within 60 days....

U.S. forces kill Afghan security guards

JALALABAD, Afghanistan, Aug. 14, 2009 (UPI) -- U.S.-led coalition forces killed two Afghan security guards and six others in a raid in the eastern border province of Nangarhar, officials said Friday.

The U.S. military launched an overnight operation in the Spin Ghar district of Nangarhar following reports of plans of militant attacks meant to coincide with presidential and provincial elections.

Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a provincial spokesman, said U.S. combat forces killed a border patrol officer along with a member of his family. An Afghan serviceman was among those killed by U.S. forces as well, the Pajhwok Afghan News agency reports.

Israel Begins Sell-Off of Refugees’ Land

According to international law, Israel holds the property of more than four million Palestinian refugees in custodianship, until a final peace deal determines whether some or all of them will be allowed back to their 400-plus destroyed Palestinian villages or are compensated for their loss.

But last week, in a violation of international law and the refugees’ property rights that went unnoticed both inside Israel and abroad, Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, forced through a revolutionary land reform.

The new law begins a process of creeping privatization of much of Israel’s developed land, including refugee property, said Oren Yiftachel, a geographer at Ben Gurion University in Beersheva.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable, yet somehow thoroughly predictable from Netanyahu's government.

Bearing the Burdens of the Imperial City

With local governments cutting the most vital and basic of services our Federal government somehow has oodles of dollars to shower down on the frivolous, the unnecessary, the preposterous, and the absurd. Not only have the Feds not cut a dime in spending – they have increased spending, dramatically, across the board.

Role of US Militarism in Ahmadinejad’s Rise

Decades of U.S. hostility toward Iran, and sanctions and military threats and attacks have had a net result: the efforts by the courageous people of Iran in establishing a democratic political system has been thwarted by undemocratic and even neo-fascist groups, who have used the militarist policy of the U.S. toward Iran as their excuse to suppress freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US doesn't want a real democracy in Iran; with that, there would be no bogeyman to demonize, and Ahmadinejad does make the perfect scapegoat.

What they want is for there to be yet another American-friendly puppet (like the Shah) installed in Iran for access to the oil.

As reported at this site yesterday,

http://obamboozled.blogspot.com/2009/08/wag-dog-again.html

the US has assured Israel that they will have a response to Iran "within the next 8 weeks"

That means that the UN will have resumed its session in September, and the US deadline for Iran to respond to the US's demands will be over.

We may very well be looking at an "October Surprise" this fall, and if it happens, it may well be the start of WWIII.

Russia has warned Tel Aviv and Washington that this will be the case, so the question of whose side Russia will be on in such a conflict has been made crystal-clear.

Unfortunately, logic and hubris, throughout history, have never had an on-going relationship.

First Lady requires more than twenty attendants

No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.

How things have changed!

GOOGLE GOING PALESTINIAN

Now this is humorous… Google, the zionist controlled and operated search engine has opened a domain for Palestinians.

Google, the same outfit that censors pro Palestinian news sites on their engine, that shuts down pro Palestinian Blogs has opened a domain for Palestinians.

Will this domain pick and chose what Palestinians will be able to find on this domain? Will Google only allow pro Israeli views to be downloaded on this new site?

There is an old saying….’Beware of zionists bearing gifts’…. originally known as ‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts’.

7 die, 91 wounded in blast near NATO HQ in Kabul

A suicide car bomb exploded Saturday outside the main gate of NATO's headquarters five days before Afghanistan's presidential election, killing seven and wounding 91 in the biggest attack in the Afghan capital in six months.

Apparently, neither the US nor NATO control Kabul at this point.

IS MYSTICISM KOSHER?

It was recently established that Ponzi schemes, laundering money and illegally harvesting and selling human body organs was kosher, as we saw there were a number of prominent American ‘rabbis’ involved in such matters.

We all know that a ‘man of the cloth’ would never involve himself in crimes that might be considered not kosher outside of Brooklyn or New Jersey.

Now we have the case of a Rabbinical Jewish Mystic that sells fortunes and future readings…. this IS legal, but is it kosher?

Who killed Tamara Greene?

The most incredible plot is a simple one: She is said to have danced at a party at the mayor's mansion and was executed because she knew too much.

The party, of course, has never been proven, and the facts about Greene, as told by investigators, friends and family members,reveal something far less sinister. A portrait emerges of a woman who ran with bad men and died with two black eyes.

Greene, 27, was Detroit murder victim No. 113 in 2003. There were 366 homicides in the city that year, just half of those resolved. At first, her death was considered an ordinary blue-collar murder -- a drive-by job -- in a city with too many of them. She died in a hail of bullets, slumped over her steering wheel, her eyeglasses broken, the car still in drive, creeping down the street.

Lawyers for slain dancer's family see police file on death

Detroit police had argued against releasing Greene's homicide file to attorneys representing her family during an ongoing investigation.

Greene's slaying has drawn attention because of a never-proven party some say Kilpatrick held at the Manoogian Mansion, then the city's mayoral residence. Some say Greene, whose stage name was Strawberry, danced at the fall 2002 party and was later assaulted by Kilpatrick's wife.

State investigators say the party never happened.

Priest who molested boys called to testify in federal investigation of L.A. archdiocese

A former Los Angeles priest convicted of molesting boys has been called before a federal grand jury investigating how the L.A. archdiocese and Cardinal Roger Mahony handled priest abuse cases, a source told The Times.

Former priest Michael Stephen Baker informed Mahony two decades ago of his abusive acts but was allowed to remain in the ministry. His case has become a symbol of how the church transferred priests who abused young boys.

"Severe violations of Human Rights in Occupied Palestinian Territories," reports UN Committee on Israeli Practices

"Violations of the international humanitarian law during the operation Cast Lead, in particular the targeting of civilian population and wanton destruction of property and religious and cultural objects", will be reported to the United Nations General Assembly by the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You watch; "Palestinians" (nudge nudge wink wink) will lob a couple harmless rockets into an empty field in Israel just in time to deflect world criticism against Israel.

Historian Frederick Töben imprisoned for "thought crimes" in Australia

Töben rejects the label "holocaust denier". He believes that mass murders did accour, however he questions the numbers and other aspects. Töben attended the infamous 2006 conference in Tehran. His current arrest was not for his views on the holocaust but for his breaking of the court order. Unlike many European nations, Australia does not have official laws against holocaust denial.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"YOU WILL BELIEVE" (WHACK) "WHAT WE" (WHACK) "TELL YOU TO BELIEVE!!!" (WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK)

No, we won't.

We will see truth, and we will not see anything but truth.

The “Toben Case” as seen by Voltaire

One day, moved by curiosity, this German-born Australian left the antipodes on a journey to Europe in order to confer with an individual who had coined the phrase « No holes, no “Holocaust” ». From there he went on to Poland, to Auschwitz, where with his own eyes he observed that, in the effective absence of any “holes” in the collapsed roof of an alleged homicidal gas chamber, there was cause to doubt whether such chemical slaughterhouses had ever existed at that spot, the veritable centre of the “Holocaust”. Finally, on a pilgrimage to the Germanic lands, he shared his doubts and asked for explanations, an act which earned him forthwith a stay in prison.

The Economy is in Deep, Deep Trouble...

It's morning in America. The jobless numbers are stabilizing, the stock market is sizzling, quarterly earnings came in better than expected, traders have turned bullish, housing is showing signs of life, and clunker-swaps have given Detroit a well-needed boost of adrenalin. Even Cassandra economists --like Paul Krugman and Nouriel Roubini--have been uncharacteristically optimistic. Is is true; did we avoid a Second Great Depression? Is the worst really behind us?

Maybe. But there is only one way to find out for sure. Raise rates.

Caucasus: The War That Was, The World War That Might Have Been

Abkhazia and South Ossetia are of course in the South Caucasus and not in Georgia except in the minds of those anxious to expel Russia from the Caucasus, North and South, and transparently have been included as they are targets of designs by U.S. empire builders to further encircle, weaken and ultimately dismantle the Russian Federation.

Russian political leadership has been reserved if not outright compliant over the past decade when the U.S. and NATO attacked Yugoslavia, invaded Afghanistan and set up military bases throughout Central and South Asia, invaded Iraq in 2003, assisted in deposing governments in Yugoslavia, Georgia, Adjaria, Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan to Russia's disadvantage and brazenly boasted of plans to drive Russia out of the European energy market.

The US is Funding the Pakistani Taliban

MARDAN, Pakistan — Standing in the lush plains of Mardan in the Northwest Frontier Province, the rugged and arid mountains that enclose the Peshawar valley on all sides may appear farther than they actually are. A few dozen miles to the north and west in the mountains, the Pakistan army has been engaged in a bloody battle with Taliban militants for years over the control of territory.

The armed guerrilla fighters have avoided forays onto the flat plains of Mardan, but driving through the main market of the city where vendors sell everything from kebab to Kalashnikovs, or among the cattle in leafy tobacco fields, or the large 16-wheeler trucks on the potholed roads, there are traces of Taliban, even here.
