The expected Election Day Republican “wave” that broke over our heads is a disaster for the anti-interventionist cause in the immediate sense – but there may be a silver lining.

The disaster is embodied in the various GOP warmongers who will be placed in key positions in Congress, and a good case could be made that among the worst of the worst will be the probable majority leader in the House: Eric Cantor.

The government is trying to build a protected autonomy for the Jewish majority and a stunted autonomy for the Arab.

Nov 03 07:35


By Barry Grey (Source: Global Research)

In what has become a regular feature of American public life—especially on the eve of major elections—the airwaves were taken over Friday by breathless reports of a new terror threat. It is impossible to determine how much is fact and how much is fiction in the ever-expanding claims being made regarding two packages from Yemen allegedly containing high explosives and addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.

But the very fact that the decision was made, undoubtedly at a very high level, to give such massive media coverage to the alleged plot—before any concrete details were being reported and entirely on the basis of unsubstantiated claims made by, for the most part, anonymous officials—is sufficient reason to adopt a highly skeptical attitude.

Climate Change Hysteria Falters. Water Is The New Target

imageSelf-proclaimed environmentalists and people who use the environment as a vehicle for political control, often the same people, have not quite destroyed environmentalism.

They are running out of exotic scares as coral bleaching, ocean acidification and a multitude of other claims prove unwarranted.

A sign of desperation is the shift to much larger targets, but they pose the problem that people know a little more and basic questions raise immediate doubts.

If indeed this legislation is approved by the Knesset plenum, it will not be possible to describe it as anything other than an apartheid law.

Obama Prepares To Expand Military Attacks In Yemen

By Bill Van Auken

02 November, 2010

The Obama administration is preparing to escalate its intervention in Yemen, placing US military units under CIA control to facilitate intensified drone attacks and death squad killings.

Citing unnamed government officials, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the administration has responded to the alleged airplane mail bomb plot by stepping up its consideration of “military options” inside Yemen.

Now That The Elections Are Over, What Kind of Economy Did Americans Vote For?
The Election is over. The Dems were thumped. They lost the House, even if they still have the Senate by a hair. Barney Frank will be back but not Alan Grayson or Russ Feingold. WSWS offered the key reason: “intractable and deepening economic crisis and the evident inability of the Obama administration to develop any policies to overcome it.”

Is that crisis likely to go away after an emboldened army of the righteous (and well-financed claque of economically responsible free market boosters) won more nominal power?

Will the deficits disappear?

Will the government shrink to what to what was in the era of the “founders?”

Will the economy breathe a sign of relief and bounce back?

Riki Ott: ‘People Now Dropping Dead’ In the Gulf

On the sixth month anniversary of the oil disaster in the gulf we are still witnessing a complete media blackout.

The people, particularly in Grand Isle, have been poisoned by tyrants that care more about their pocketbooks than human life or mother earth.

According to Riki Ott, marine toxicologist and Exxon Valdez survivor:

“The people that did evacuate (the gulf) are glad they did”
And for good reason.”

” I am dealing with about 3 -4 autopsies right now… I know of people who’s esophagus’ are de-solving, disintegrating… I know of people with 4.75% of their lung capacity, with enlarged hearts… All of these people have oil in their bodies.”

By Daniel Tencer (source: The Raw Story )

Washington Post political correspondent David Broder has kind words for President Barack Obama in in his opinion column Sunday, arguing that it isn’t the president’s fault the economy is stuck in reverse.

But the four-decade-plus veteran of Washington politics offers a startling solution to the president’s political and economic woes: March off to war with Iran.

The president, who is “much smarter” and “more inspirational” than any of his opponents, could benefit from a confrontation with Iran because it would strike up a war machine that would pull the US out of economic stagnation, Broder argues.

Man Buys Police Department's Domain Name After Getting Ticket

Most of the time, if you get a speeding ticket you just grumble about it and pay the fine. It’s usually not a big deal for most people unless it happens a lot or they get caught going a ridiculous amount over the posted speed limit. You can fight it in court or just pay the ticket, and for most people those are the only options.

However, after receiving a $90 speeding ticket in Bluff City, Tennessee, Brian McCrary discovered a third option. The Bluff City Police Department had forgotten to renew their domain name, BluffCityPD.com, and let it expire. McCrary bought the domain name for $80 and posted his side of the story with information about speed traps in Bluff City and the $250,000 per month they cost the town’s 1,500 residents.

Rand Paul Victory Sends Fed Critic to Senate

Republican Rand Paul’s victory means that Kentucky will continue to send an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve to the Senate.

Retiring Sen. Jim Bunning, who Paul succeeds, has been the chief Fed critic in the U.S. Senate. Not only did he vote against the reconfirmation of Ben Bernanke earlier this year, but he was also the sole “no” vote in the Senate Banking Committee during the Fed chairman’s first confirmation. Bunning could also always be counted on to spend his seven minutes during Bernanke’s semiannual testimony to the Banking Committee attacking the Fed.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that Paul will take Bunning’s spot on the Senate Banking Committee. But judging from his interest in the Fed, it seems likely that Paul will seek a spot on the influential panel.

Election Day Fraud Found All Over U.S.!

During each election cycle, news stories emerge of voter irregularities and ballot malfunctions, prompting volunteerorganizations to fight what they say is rampant fraud, while many authorities and other organizations dismiss the charges as unfounded.

An organization called Minnesota Majority, for example, claims it found hundreds of ineligible votes by convicted felons cast in the 2008 election, possibly turning the tide in the very narrowly decided election of Sen. Al Franken.

Harry Reid Wins Senate Re-Election Amid Widespread Voter Fraud

Sen. Harry Reid has won reelection in a tightly contested battle with Sharron Angle. Angle, a strong supporter of the Constitution and small government, appears to have lost despite recent polling that had her up by as much as 3 points.

Reports of fraud and intimidation have circulated for weeks, with early voters complaining of rigged voting machines throughout Clark County.

Residents of Clark County Nevada have reported that upon attempting to vote for Angle they found that Reid’s name had already been checked. This is not surprising as widespread voting fraud has been reported since the inception of the fraudulent electronic voting machines.

Under its current construction, the FDA is unable to remove a toxic chemical that is leaching into canned goods and other common foods as we speak, because it was classified in 1963 as an indirect food additive and is listed among the 3,000 or so chemicals categorized as GRAS ("generally regarded as safe").

0.5 Percent Of Times Online Readers Have Converted To Paid

Many observers cite five percent as an industry benchmark for proportion of paying customers against free users in a freemium service environment. That’s exactly what Spotify has.

But, from a pre-paywall readership of 20 million unique monthly users, to a base of 105,000 cumulative reader payments in the last four months, The Times has encouraged just 0.5 percent of its online audience at most to pay.

Consider that only half of these subscribe, as opposed to pay per day, and you see that just 0.25 percent of The Times’ online audience have become regular customers.

Times website traffic dwindles behind paywall

The Times and Sunday Times websites have seen a large decline in visitors since News International built the paywall around its online content.

The paywall went up at the start of July, and industry experts predicted a fall in readership of around the 90% level. Simply put, the thinking was that folks wouldn’t pay to read content when they could access other papers and news sources for free.


Nielsen estimates that between July and September, an average of 362,000 visitors per month have been reading the subscription content. Before the paywall went up, monthly visitors were approximately 3.1 million, so its construction has caused a drop of 88%.

Torture Orders Were Part of US Sectarian War Strategy

Gen. David Petraeus was a key figure in developing the strategy of using Shi’a and Kurdish forces to suppress Sunnis in 2004-2005.

The strategy involved the deliberate deployment of Shi’a and Kurdish police commandos in areas of Sunni insurgency in the full knowledge that they were torturing Sunni detainees, as the reports released by WikiLeaks show.

That strategy inflamed Sunni fears of Shi’a rule and was a major contributing factor to the rise of al-Qaeda’s influence in the Sunni areas. The escalating Sunni-Shi’a violence it produced led to the massive sectarian warfare of 2006 in Baghdad in which tens of thousands of civilians – mainly Sunnis – were killed.

Rabbi Yosef is the former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel and the founder and spiritual leader of the Shas Party, one of the three major components of the current Israeli government.

A sad thing, perhaps beyond comprehension, is that we know more about Julius Caesar than we know about or own recent history. A few days ago someone sent me a link to a video by David Irving, the British author who professionally debunks everything. Irving, famous of late for taking on the holocaust, is the “go to guy” on World War II and Germany in particular.

Intercepted device likely a cell phone, photo analysis shows

The electronic component visible in a law enforcement image of an intercepted suspicious shipment from Yemen appears to be a printed circuit board from a disassembled cell phone, an engineer told CNN Friday.

With that itty-bitty battery seen right above the RF cage? Hardly. However, let us for the purpose of kicking CNN in the gonads stipulate that this is a circuit card from a cell phone that still manages to operate despite the removal of the screen, keypad, etc. etc. etc.

FLASHBACK - Obama says bailout has 'turned a profit'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As part of the election day propaganda, ABCNNBBCBSFOX are screaming that the Wall Street bailouts have actually turned a profit! With the total estimated cost of all the bailouts now at $14+ trillion that is a hard claim to support, and certainly no ordinary American outside the cloistered temples of Wall Street has seen any improvement in life in the United States.

And that should come as no surprise, because as this article documents, Obama was saying that the bailouts were turning a profit the middle of 2009.

Seen any signs that the economy is improving?

Obama administration sings new tune on foreclosures

A year ago, officials focused on stemming the foreclosure tide. Now they are touting the need for foreclosures to rebuild the housing market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in order to justify NOT hanging the bankers whose over-subscribed mortgage-backed securities wrecked this nation, Obama is trying to sell you the idea that throwing people out of their homes on dubious paperwork, wrecking their credit, leaving the properties empty and subject to vandalism, leading to their eventual condemnation are REMOVAL from the housing market, not to mention the loss in property tax revenues to local communities, is going to "save" the housing market?

Of course what he really means is that allowing homes to be destroyed increases demand driving prices and mortgage debt back up, which protects the banks that have homes and home mortgages on their balance sheets, saving them from insolvency, with a few million homeless Americans a small price to pay for the greater good of Wall Street!

Vaccines Did Not Save Us – 2 Centuries of Official Statistics

This is the data the drug industry do not want you to see.

The main advances in combating disease over 200 years have been better food and clean drinking water. Improved sanitation, less overcrowded and better living conditions also contribute. This is also borne out in published peer reviewed research:

Nov 02 10:06


When you critically analyze why we would need to spend 7 times as much as China on military when there is no country on earth that can challenge us, the answer can only be OIL. Our own military came to the following chilling conclusion in their Joint Operating Environment report, issued earlier this year:

By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 MBD.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the US Government had taken that $14 trillion spent to save the bankers from the prison sentences they so richly deserve, and spent in on research and development, oil would no longer be a critical necessary. Remember that the entire Apollo Moon program cost only $25 billion in 1973. Adjusted for inflation that would be about $120 billion today. So, the US Government has borrowed (on your tab) and spent more than 116 times the entire cost of the Apollo Project to help the bankers buy back those fraudulent mortgage-backed securities (and write themselves some record-setting bonuses along with those campaign contributions). And for all those trillions, we did not get a great leap for mankind, nor any of the technological offshoots that powered the tech boom of the 1970s and 1980s.

All we did was feed the bankers addiction, while removing any incentive not to do it all again.

I know most people cannot grasp what $14 trillion really would have meant had it been invested in the nation instead of handed to the crooks at the banks, but here are a few things to think about.

There is a new class of nuclear reactors that use Thorium as a fuel rather than uranium. They avoid the risks of runaway reactions and cannot be used for bomb-making. This is an established technology; not some still just-out-of-reach technology like hot fusion. Currently it is estimated that a 100 Megawatt Thorium reactor would cost $200 million to build, and provide power for about 3 cents per kilowatt hour, and thorium reactors do not produce vast amounts of highly toxic radioactive waste. With an "assembly line" funded by $14 trillion dollars, almost all of the oil-fired power plants in the United States could be replaced with Thorium reactors, ending the dependency on oil and lowering electric costs at the same time.

Setting aside future technologies, just think how many schools and hospitals $14 trillion would have bought. Or how many roads could be re-paved, bridges repaired, or bullet-trains built.

Had the US Government borrowed that $14 trillion and invested it in the future of the United States, we would not have lost our technology lead and manufacturing to other countries. China would not have the fastest supercomputers, and we would not need to hitch rides on Russia's rockets to get to the space station.

Our nation did not commit suicide. It was murdered; sucked dry of all that made it live by the greedy bastards on Wall Street and their accomplices in Washington DC who have placed you and your children on the hook for $14 trillion dollars (plus whatever Bernanke spends tomorrow) without getting anything at all of value for that cash.

I am not romancing; I am giving to the world, for the first time, the real story of how the famous Aldrich currency report, the foundation of our new currency system, was written... The utmost secrecy was enjoined upon all. The public must not glean a hint of what was to be done.

Bank of America Being Pushed Toward Receivership

Simon Johnson warned us this day would come. And he wasn’t the only one. In the article below he describes BOA’s position as “precarious,” arising from the growing number of claims from investors who “purchased” Mortgage bonds or some similar derivative or synthetic derivative. They want their money back, 100 cents on the dollar and BOA doesn’t have it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It isn't the foreclosures, it's the fraud. But I would not fret about BofA. Tomorrow, one day after the elections, Bernanke will unveil the next run of the printing presses, and I expect that much of those trillions will be given to Bank of America to make good on all the bad paper they sold and keep those executives out of prison where they belong. Of course, QE is technically a loan, since there is no way to make money on a fraudulent mortgage-backed security, the money addicts at the Federal Reserve will expect you and your children and your grandchildren to slave away your entire lives in obedient servitude to repay all those "loans."

America, You Are At A Crucial Tipping Point

Oozing sanctimonious arrogance, viewing the rest of us as coarse, unsophisticated rubes who cling bitterly to guns and bibles, this class seeks to impose its own supposedly superior values and visions upon the rest of us, by force of law.
As we know too well, the ultimate goal of our Ruling Class is power. They exist—not to produce, not to invent, not to create—but to manipulate and master others. Ronald Reagan memorably summed up the Ruling Class’s governing outlook this way: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

Historic backlash looms for Obama as Democrats face worst rout at polls in 68 years

Barack Obama and his Democratic Party are heading for the worst U.S. election rout in 68 years, according to the final opinion poll before today’s mid-term vote.

As the President retreated to the White House after a last-ditch campaign to round up votes, a Gallup poll gave the Republicans a massive 15-point lead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama screwed his party and himself with that lame-ass Yemen hoax. After all the times Bush was caught using phony terror threats for political gain it was an act of sheer stupidity to think it would work now. Worse, it was an insult to the intelligence of the voters.

Now, I really don't expect this election to change anything other than the names on the doors. But a crushing defeat for the Democrats should send a lesson to any political operative with two brain cells to rub together that lies and hoaxes as a tool of domestic policy are now obsolete and counter-productive.

I hope the Democrats go down in flames today, not because I think the Republicans are any less crooked, but because it sends a message that the cost of lies is starting to outweigh the benefit! And that is a lesson long overdue in Sodom on the Potomac!

Real estate is a bad investment does not show up in Google News and other interesting housing trends – Strategic default searches went viral in 2010. Banks betting against American homeowners.

82 percent of American households have internet access. Of those with internet access, a large number are homeowners. The vast majority use Google to search for many things including foreclosure advice or investigating the real estate market. The online trends give of a sense of what is happening in the collective psyche of our country that really isn’t revealed through the conventional press. The housing market seems to be entering a second leg down and many are now predicting nationwide home prices to fall by 5 to 10 percent in the upcoming year. With that being said, very few articles have made their way to the popular press regarding real estate as a bad investment. Even today, there is still a sense that no matter the price, real estate will always be a good financial choice.

Gilad Atzmon: Julie Sabbath Goy Burchill

But I guess that Burchill didn’t really have to convert -- She is obviously far more Jewish than anyone I can think of. Burchill can teach Rabbi Ovadia Yosef what self-love is all about. She can teach Paul Wolfowitz, David Aaronovitch and David Miliband what moral-interventionism stands for. She can give Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman a crash course in Hasbara. Burchill can lecture Zionist slander operators on how to spread venom.

Companies may have to make amends after midterm elections

Republicans have a message for the businesses that worked closely with the Obama administration over the past two years on key controversial issues: We won't forget.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is not a message you put out before the election. The goal of this message is to scare Democratic supporters into remaining Democratic supporters. Hence I do not accept that this story traces back to the GOP.

Treason by Members of the United States Congress

Nov 02 08:32


Every newspaper in the country has reported that PETN, Pentaerythritol tetranitrate, is “undetectable.” Look at the word. See the part that says “nitrate?” Most common explosives are nitrates and there is nothing the least bit difficult about finding them. The game is simple. We now have to put a useless $5 million dollar “Michael Chertoff” package scanner in every post office in America to find explosives easily detected by 1970s technology. This is the heart of mythology and the racketeers that run, not only “counter-terrorism” but may well in fact run “terrorism” as well.

US 'intercepted mail bomb dry run'

They removed "papers, books and other materials" that now appear to have been sent by the Yemeni militant group al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (Aqap) to test logistics of the air cargo system, the official said.

"We received information several weeks ago that potentially connected these packages to Aqap. The boxes were stopped in transit and searched. They contained papers, books, and other materials, but no explosives," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

If you believe this then I've got a watch to sell you.

Is the American Dream Over?

America has long been a country of limitless possibility. But the dream has now become a nightmare for many. The US is now realizing just how fragile its success has become -- and how bitter its reality. Should the superpower not find a way out of crisis, it could spell trouble ahead for the global economy.

4 Simple ways to save money by minimizing household chemicals naturally

Mary Hickcox, RN
Activist Post

We are addicted to chemicals: bleach, ammonia, window cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, drain cleaner, shampoo, body wash, laundry detergent, fabric softener, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, body creams, shave gel, dish soap, antibacterial spray, deodorizer, mildew remover, and the list goes on and on. We have been convinced that we need these products in order to keep natural odors and bacteria, mold, and germs at bay.

But the cost is staggering in many ways. They cause environmental damage, personal harm from an incredible amount of toxic chemicals combined in a day, and finally there's the actual financial cost. Consequently, in the long run we spend all this money unnecessarily, given our access to easy and natural alternatives.
