FLASHBACK - Israel killed JFK,says Vanunu

In a startling accusation, nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu has alleged that Jerusalem was behind the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, who was exerting pressure on the then Israeli head of state to shed light on the Dimona nuclear plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Michael Collins Piper has come to the same conclusion.

Nixon administration pressured Israel on nukes

Documents released by Nixon Library show US tried to pressure Israel to sign Nonproliferation Treaty. 'If Israel elects to go the nuclear route it would cause a fundamental change in the US-Israeli relationship,' says unsigned memo, including 'our long-standing concern for Israel's security'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That may have been Nixon's downfall.

UN hears of Gaza children's suffering

A UN human rights mission on Monday listened to testimony about the suffering of children in the Gaza Strip as it continued its probe into alleged Israeli war crimes in the enclave.

The international community has pledged billions of dollars in aid to rebuild the territory, but reconstruction efforts remain paralysed by the closures, which prevent the import of virtually all building materials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great: the UN has listened (but will do nothing to compel Israel to lift the siege), and has pledged aid (which cannot get through to the siege victims because of the blockade of goods).

So what is the UN good for in this instance?

Absolutely nothing.

Chad Johnson compares Michael Jackson's death to 9/11

Impulsivity and the ability to instantly post things on the internet are a dangerous mix. Throw in egomania and, well, you've pretty much got Chad Johnson's Twitter page. (And, yes, we'll call him Chad Johnson(notes), because that's still his display name, despite the fact that it's easily changeable.)

Anyway, after news of Michael Jackson's death broke yesterday, Johnson had a typically measured response:

Israel's ongoing siege of Gaza has provoked an international outcry and organizing in support of Palestinian rights. Among the responses is a movement for boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) to pressure Israel in a variety of ways.

Iran frees five British embassy staff

Iran has said it has freed five local British embassy staff arrested on accusations of stoking post-election unrest, a move that further threatened tense ties with London and the West.

“Out of nine people arrested, five have been released,” foreign ministry spokesman Hassan Ghashghavi said at a press conference.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if the other 4 remaining in detention will wind up being tried under Iranian law for their alleged offenses, as they themselves are not British, but local nationals who had been working for the British embassy.

Supreme Court Reverses Sotomayor's decision on Firefighters Promotions

The Associated Press
Monday, June 29, 2009; 10:14 AM

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court has ruled that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.

New Haven was wrong to scrap a promotion exam because no African-Americans and only two Hispanic firefighters were likely to be made lieutenants or captains based on the results, the court said Monday in a 5-4 decision. The city said that it had acted to avoid a lawsuit from minorities.

"Organized Greed Always Defeats Disorganized Democracy"

In his excellent new essay arguing that "Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression", Matt Taibbi writes:

In a society governed passively by free markets and free elections, organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy.

I agree.

This same thinking applies to the government's lies about Iraq, as more and more evidence proves that the American government knowingly lied when it claimed that Iraq had wmds, and when it claimed there was a link between Iraq and 9/11. The "organized greed" of those in government who wanted to invade Iraq defeated the "disorganized democracy" of everyone else.

The Transition From Democracy To A Bank-run Society

The trouble started 24 months ago, but the origins of the financial crisis are still disputed. The problems did not begin with subprime loans, lax lending standards or shoddy ratings agencies. The meltdown can be traced back to the activities of the big banks and their enablers at the Federal Reserve. The Fed's artificially low interest rates provided a subsidy for risky speculation while deregulation allowed financial institutions to increase leverage to perilous levels, creating trillions of dollars of credit backed by insufficient capital reserves.

Police, Basij 'imposters' arrested in Iran

Iranian police officials have reportedly arrested the armed imposters who posed as security forces during post-election violence in the country.

Iran's Basij commander, Hossein Taeb, said Monday that the imposters had worn police and Basij uniforms to infiltrate the rallies and create havoc.

Taeb added that the recent anti-government riots have killed eight members of the Basij and wounded 300 others.

Iranian security officials --and in particularly the Basij volunteer forces-- have been accused of killing and injuring protestors who took to the streets to protest the outcome of the June 12 election -- which saw incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad win by a landslide.

Pro-War Caucus Running the Democratic Party Ditches the Masks

Recent actions by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and House Democratic leadership reveal that the rationale under which the party solicits funds–electing more Democrats and defeating Republican incumbents–has taken a back seat to a radical, pro-war agenda.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s latest ad shows that Democrats now seek to wrap themselves in the flag and stake out the “support the troops” high ground, jettisoning the contrary arguments they employed during the last several cycles, opting instead for “the prophesying of smooth patriotism” in ads targeting seven Republican congressmen

War Criminals

During World War II the crime of Treason in a time of war, was a hanging offence. As most Americans might remember, as Cheney Bush & Rumsfeld told us daily during their collective reign at the helm, that "this nation is at war!" Or "In this time of war, sacrifices must be made." Okay, so what is the penalty for traitors that commit treason in this "Time of War"? What about those who collaborate with traitors that are committing acts of treason in the current "time of war"?

It's a serious question, but those who would have been charged with investigating these actions [congress] are themselves part of the treasonable collaboration, with those particular figureheads that did indeed commit treason, thousands of times, in this time of war: So where does that leave us now?

Iran's Press TV disputes story of Neda's death

Two people told Press TV there were no security forces in the area when Neda Agha-Soltan, 26, was killed on June 20.

Neda's death was captured on amateur video -- most likely by a cell phone -- and posted online. Within hours, she had become the iconic victim of the Iranian government crackdown.

Eyewitnesses say Neda was shot by pro-government Basij militiamen perched on a rooftop.

But Press TV said the type of bullet that killed her is not used by Iranian security forces.

The Afghans were recruited from Taliban ranks and were paid for their services in Iraq.

Honduras is a nation that has been the victim of dictatorships and massive U.S. intervention during the past century, including several military invasions. The last major U.S. government intervention in Honduras occured during the 1980s, when the Reagain Administration funded death squads and paramilitaries to eliminate any potential "communist threats" in Central America. At the time, John Negroponte, was the U.S. Ambassador in Honduras and was responsible for directly funding and training Honduran death squads that were responsable for thousands of disappeared and assassinated throughout the region.

The Secret History

No criminal charges have ever been brought against any C.I.A. officer involved in the torture program, despite the fact that at least three prisoners interrogated by agency personnel died as the result of mistreatment. In the first case, an unnamed detainee under C.I.A. supervision in Afghanistan froze to death after having been chained, naked, to a concrete floor overnight. The body was buried in an unmarked grave. In the second case, an Iraqi prisoner named Manadel al-Jamadi died on November 4, 2003, while being interrogated by the C.I.A. at Abu Ghraib prison, outside Baghdad. A forensic examiner found that he had essentially been crucified; he died from asphyxiation after having been hung by his arms, in a hood, and suffering broken ribs.

Uniformly I advise people that the judicial process is slow, and just as slow in Hawai’i as anywhere else.

My case is currently pending in the Hawai’i Intermediate Court of Appeals. (You can check their online docket, Martin v. Lingle.)

Madoff may not have benefited most in scam

It is rare these days to see Bernard Madoff's name in print unaccompanied by the word "Ponzi." Yet recent allegations raise the possibility of one key difference between Madoff's crimes and those of legendary con artist Charles Ponzi. While Ponzi's scam was under way, Ponzi himself was its biggest beneficiary. It now appears that the biggest winner in Madoff's scheme may not have been Madoff at all, but a secretive businessman named Jeffry Picower.

Between December 1995 and December 2008, Picower and his family withdrew from their various Madoff accounts $5.1 billion more than they invested with the self-confessed swindler, according to a lawsuit filed by the trustee who is trying to recover money for those Madoff defrauded.

If only Iran becomes moderate, a whole set of regional conflicts will be solved.

Continuing the "get rich quick" propaganda. Apparently everyone can make money while adding no real value to the system - by "watching patterns." Gimme a break.

This worked because of the relatively stable history of the dollar, but we are entering a new era where people will get quite the wake-up call.

11th Circuit Grants Wesley Snipes Oral Argument in Appeal of His Tax Fraud Conviction

Ellen Podgor (Stetson) of our sister White Collar Crime Blog reports that the 11th Circuit has granted actor Wesley Snipes oral argument in the appeal of his conviction on three misdemeanor tax fraud counts. Oral argument is scheduled for November 2009, so Mr. Snipes should remain free on bail until well into 2010.

Israel lobbyist Paul Wolfowitz calls for US interference in Iran

The New York Times published an Op-Ed piece (19 June) by Paul Wolfowitz, the man more responsible than others in the previous US administration for unjustified death and destruction in Iraq.

Bernard Weiner, writing in the Crisis Papers reveals that in 1992, then-Secretary of Defence Dick Cheney had a strategy report drafted for the Department of Defence, written by Paul Wolfowitz, who was then the under-secretary of defence for policy.

In it, the US government was urged, as the world's sole remaining superpower, to move aggressively and militarily around the globe. The report called for pre-emptive attacks and ad hoc coalitions, but said that the US should be ready to act alone when "collective action cannot be orchestrated."

Iran 'must free UK embassy staff'

The European Union has demanded the immediate release of Iranian staff at Britain's embassy in Tehran detained on Saturday over post-election unrest.

EU ministers meeting in Greece warned that "harassment or intimidation" of embassy staff would be met with a "strong and collective" response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, Great Britain left their staff in Iran in the hopes they would be arrested, creating a new "hostage" crisis justifying a military intervention.

If Ahmadinejad is smart, he will declare the entire British Embassy Staff persona non grata and send them back to Great Britain. This is a public slap in the face to Britain (and the US) for attempting an overthrow while removing the excuse for a follow-up invasion.

Two weeks after: Iran rallies fade, elite split

Supporters of defeated candidate Mirhossein Mousavi, who want the result annulled, plan to release thousands of balloons on Friday with the message: "Neda you will always remain in our hearts," in memory of the young woman killed last week who has become an icon of the protests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


As for Neda: If the overthrowers were truly concerned with democracy and an honest vote, they would never stray from that agenda. Like Bev Harris at blackboxvoting.org, that would continue to be the focus no matter what happens. That is what interity of purpose is all about.

But in the case of the overthrowers, they dropped the election as soon as it was not getting traction and shifted to Neda when it looked like she was the better propaganda tool. But in their haste to rebrand, they have wrecked their own credibility. The public sees them as opportunists using any issue as a means to the end of forcing their new government onto the people of Iran. It is indeed 1953 all over again!

China Seeks New Global Reserve Currency

BEIJING -- China's central bank reiterated its call for the creation of a new international currency that could replace currencies like the dollar in countries' official reserves.

In its annual report on financial stability, issued Friday, the People's Bank of China said the country will push reform of the international currency system to make it more diversified and reasonable. While it didn't specifically target the U.S. currency, it said it aims to reduce over-reliance on the current reserve currencies, of which the dollar is the biggest.

"To avoid the shortcomings of sovereign credit currencies acting as reserve currencies, we need to create an... international reserve currency that can maintain the long-term stability of its value," the PBOC said....

Layoffs and wage cuts are rapidly diminishing returns on state and local taxation?income, sales, and property taxes. At the same time, increasing numbers of unemployed workers and their families are turning to state-administered social safety programs already woefully unprepared for hard times.

Now, as the fiscal year approaches its June 30 end, the budget crisis is being used by Democratic and Republican governors alike to launch a new attack in the social position of the working class. This will be carried out through cuts to social programs, education, and transportation; layoffs and wage and benefit cuts for state workers; and regressive forms of taxation targeting the spending and income of working class households.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Things could get very ugly in major metropolitan areas around the US toward the end of this summer.

Unfortunately, these are precisely the kinds of event that could trigger national calls for martial law.

Obama's Ludicrous Declaration on Torture Day

Spending U.S. tax dollars for private groups aiding torture victims supposedly compensates for Obama's coverup of the evidence of U.S. government torture and his de facto pardon of all the torturers and torture policymakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement doesn't and won't let Obama off the hook for covering up the war crimes of his predecessor; We the People cannot - and will not - allow that to happen.

UNIFIL refutes Israeli reports it found 20 rockets in Lebanon

The spokeswoman of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) dismissed on Friday a report carried by an Israeli newspaper that UN peacekeepers found around 20 Katyusha rockets that were ready for launch in south Lebanon. "The news report is inaccurate," Yasmina Bouziane said on Friday, adding that if the news had been correct, the UN will be "immediately notified through the appropriate channels."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel, after having recently massed military assets on the Lebanese border is looking for some reason - any reason - to invade Lebanon again, and this time, to go all the way to the Litani River, because it desperately needs the water resources the Litani can provide.

Israel envoy blasts UN report on Palestinians as 'biased'

The Israeli ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday blasted a report on Israel's conduct vis-a-vis the Palestinians, put together by the UN Humanitarian Affairs chief John Holmes.

In a strident letter addressed to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Gabriela Shalev accused the UN of political bias, ahead of a special Security Council session devoted to "the protection of civilians in armed conflicts."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering all the other reports from the ground in Israeli occupied territories concerning Palestinians, it appears that Ambassador Gabriela Shalev is profoundly allergic to the truth.

And by the way, Ambassador Shalev, were you aware that the torture of children in order to get them to sign confessions in a language they do not read(i.e., Hebrew) is a war crime?

Just checking.

In one of his verbose obfuscations of reality, President Obama declared on June 23, 2009;

“The United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is not interfering with Iran’s affairs. Some in Iran — some in the Iranian government, in particular, are trying to avoid that debate by accusing the United States and others in the West of instigating protests over the election. These accusations are patently false.”

The facts as reported elsewhere provide the evidence that the United States government is directly engaged in its continuing historic role as a racist colonizing state by its interference in the internal affairs of Iran and providing tax exempt status---a form of indirect funding---for organizations engaged in these activities.

How AIPAC Harms Israel

The wheels are squeaking on the tumbrel methinks. At a recent conclave held by AIPAC, unease arose, reasonably enough, over eroding American support for Israel. What apparently did not arise was any indication of understanding of why support is eroding.

British Rum Maker Got a $2.7 Billion Payout from TARP

In June 2008, U.S. Virgin Islands Governor John deJongh Jr. agreed to give London-based Diageo Plc billions of dollars in tax incentives to move its production of Captain Morgan rum from one U.S. island -- Puerto Rico -- to another, namely St. Croix.

DeJongh says he had no idea his deal would help make the world’s largest liquor distiller the most unlikely beneficiary of the emergency Troubled Asset Relief Program approved by Congress just four months later.

Depots Beach evictions due

Tomorrow, city crews will begin a four-day cleanup along a stretch on the Wai'anae Coast known as Depots Beach in Nanakuli.

The cleanup marks the latest phase of a city effort begun nearly three years ago to move out the homeless along the coast, encourage them to take advantage of shelters or find other housing, and reclaim the beaches and parks for use by the general public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As in almost everywhere else in this country, homelessness in Hawaii is about to become a criminal offense.
