What to do with US traitors who wage Wars of Aggression? 1: Truth & Reconciliation. 2: Prosecution.

A traitor is one with allegiance to the US who wages war against the United States. Lying the American public into war that takes trillions in long-term costs and kills over 5,000 US troops is treason. US political “leaders” who wage illegal and horrific Wars of Aggression, the worst crime a nation can commit, are actively attacking our Constitution and values. Neither political party will prosecute these crimes.

So what do we do?

Offer Truth and Reconciliation.

Terrance Yeakey Truth

Most people today believe someone other than James Earl Ray shot Martin Luther King. They have judged the facts, not the standard news media spin. Someday the world opinion will do an about-face and swing in favor of another unjustly convicted man, Tim McVeigh. If AP and the talking heads would only report the truth about ANFO and its impotency, most of the thinking public would have to conclude that Tim McVeigh could not be guilty of murdering anyone. This is already a known fact, but the media are suppressing it. Contrary to news reports, the persons found guilty could not have been solely responsible. An Oklahoma City police sergeant became aware of this before anyone else, apparently during the first hour of rescue. He paid for that discovery with his life.

FLASHBACK - Candidate Carter: 1 Apologize'

The furor began when Carter was asked in Indianapolis to explain his recent statement that there was "nothing wrong with ethnic purity being maintained" in neighborhoods. Carter replied that he wholeheartedly supports open-housing laws that make it a crime to refuse to sell or rent a house or apartment on the grounds of race, color or creed. But he opposes Government programs "to inject black families into a white neighborhood just to create some sort of integration." Said he: "I have nothing against a community that is made up of people who are Polish, or who are Czechoslovakians, or who are French Canadians or who are blacks trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods. This is a natural inclination."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Uncle Sam Eyes Vehicle Tracking Tax

A Member of Congress proposes to use taxpayer money to fund the development of technology to track motorists as part of a new form of taxation. US Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-Oregon) introduced H.R. 3311 earlier this year to appropriate $154,500,000 for research and study into the transition to a per-mile vehicle tax system.

The ruling majority UMP voted in favour but the Socialist Party has already announced that they will appeal to the Constitutional Court once again.

Top IDF officer: Iran has taken over Hezbollah

A senior Israel Defense Forces officer said Thursday that all five incidents of rocket fire from southern Lebanon into Israel since the end of the 2006 Second Lebanon War have been carried out in absolute defiance of Hezbollah directives and that Iran had taken control over the Lebanese militia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Haaretz, does this "senior Israel Defense Forces Officer" really exist?

Because if he really did exist, wouldn't you name him as your source?

Of course, this article doesn't even pretend to be journalism.

This looks to be yet another pathetic excuse for yet another invasion of Lebanon, which could well escalate into an attack against Iran, as Iran is blamed as the culprit for having "taken over" Hezbollah.

Ayalon to Jewish Leaders: Fight UN Report Hard

One day after the publication of the United Nations report by Judge Richard Goldstone, which blamed Israel for “war crimes,” Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon met with the heads of the Jewish community in New York and exhorted them to fight the report.

"The Goldstone report should be treated like the U.N.'s Resolution 3379 that compared Zionism to racism,” Ayalon told the local leaders. “That is why we must commit ourselves and act with all our force against the report, with the purpose of removing it and torpedoing it,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Goldstone report should be screamed from the rooftops in every corner of the world, and read and taught in every high school class in the US, to demonstrate what US taxpayer's money going to Israel really buys.

And it sure as heck isn't peace in the region.

And he knows that the campaign probably will touch on some topics Gore bristles at discussing, such as his role during his 32-year tenure as an FBI agent in the controversial 1992 Ruby Ridge incident, and what some critics say was the FBI's missed opportunity to detect two of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers who lived in San Diego a year before the attacks.

It marks the first time that the trade union movement has boycotted goods since the apartheid regime of South Africa.

Proxy war feared in Yemen Iran, Saudi Arabia

Fierce battles between government troops and Shiite rebels in the northern mountains of Yemen are fuelling fears of regional instability and a possible proxy war between Shiite-dominated Iran and Sunni-led Saudi Arabia.

In an effort to forestall Yemen's collapse, the United States has equipped and trained local security forces, while Saudi Arabia and Iran are waging proxy ideological battles by backing different elements in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now we're involved with yet another Middle Eastern war in behalf of another crooked tin-pot dictator with absolute contempt for his people, and have placed "advisors" who have "equipped and trained local security security forces"?!?

Does anyone at the US State Department have any remote recollection of just how brilliantly well that kind of tactic went when we were propping up the Shaw of Iran?

Apparently, not.

When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.

Obama: Health Reform a 'Defining Struggle of This Generation'

Calling health insurance reform a "defining struggle of this generation," President Obama told thousands of college students Thursday that Congress must resist scare tactics and false accusations to do a makeover.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear President Obey-me.

Insurance corporation profits are not, repeat not, the "defining struggle of this generation."

What arrogant nonsense, even from you.

I know you think you have the divine right to tell Americans what they should think is important or not, but common sense has to tell you that the real defining struggle for the new generation is how to avoid being killed and crippled in all the wars the US Government is trying to start to distract from their total failure with the economy.

The defining struggle of this generation is how to reverse the trend towards tyranny; a trend YOU YOURSELF PROMISED YOU WOULD REVERSE IN YOUR CAMPAIGN SPEECHES, only to support fully now that you are in office.

You promised you would end the wars. The wars continue. Indeed they escalate!

You promised you would end torture. The torture continues.

You promised you would end warrantless spying on Americans. The spying continues.

Only 8 months into the job and you are a total failure as President.

The defining struggle of this generation is how to fire you and all your enablers, and get back the Constitutional Republic the Founding Fathers created for us.

China could undermine US military power in Pacific: Gates

Unbelievable - Vehicle Tracking, Taxing Bill In House

A Member of Congress proposes to use taxpayer money to fund the development of technology to track motorists as part of a new form of taxation. US Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-Oregon) introduced H.R. 3311 earlier this year to appropriate $154,500,000 for research and study into the transition to a per-mile vehicle tax system. The "Road User Fee Pilot Project" would be administered by the US Treasury Department. This agency in turn would issue millions in taxpayer-backed grants to well-connected commercial manufacturers of tolling equipment to help develop the required technology. Within eighteen months of the measure's passage, the department would file an initial report outlining the best methods for adopting the new federal transportation tax.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Instead of toying how better to tax the already taxed-to-death American, how about coming up with plans which eliminate these wars without end, and putting that money into infrastructure, and true health care reform?

Of course, that would be logical.

Barak: Iran not existential threat to Israel

In a different tone from Tel Aviv's previous statements, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Iran does not pose an existential threat to Israel.

In an interview with Yediot Aharonot published on Thursday, Barak said that in his eyes 'Iran does not constitute an existential threat to Israel's existence'.

He said Israel was 'strong' and he did not 'see anyone capable of representing a threat to our existence'.

The slick swindler: Senator Max Baucus, the man behind the health care bill

I was indignant. “How could he . . . ?!” I pondered. “If the Democrats aren’t saving our natural resources, who the hell is?”

That anger has festered in me to this day. Max Baucus may still be the most corporate –entrenched, conniving Democrat in Washington, and now Americans are getting a health care bill written by the health care lobby for the health care industry.

No more than 20 meters past the former Israeli watchtower, in an empty lot, is the memorial for the victims of the 1982 Lebanon Civil War massacre. Camp residents say the site was once a mass grave for the slain. The memorial was a single-track dirt path linking a series of billboards with images of the dead.

The massacres perpetrators were of the predominantly Christian Phalange party: supplied, supported and supervised by on-looking Israeli soldiers.

As the month of Ramadan draws to a close, many Palestinians are devoting the last ten days of the holy month to gaining more spiritual enrichment through I’tikaf or uninterrupted spiritual engagement.

Many people are going for I’tikaf this year, motivated by a desire to gain Allah’s blessing and also encouraged by a relative relaxation of the normally harsh Israeli restrictions on the entry of Palestinians to al-Quds.

The Israeli occupation authorities this year allowed men over 50 and women over 45 to enter Jerusalem on Fridays. However, worshipers are still subjected to meticulous and often humiliating searches.

Witness in a refugee camp in northern Yemen are reporting today that the Yemeni military has launched a series of air strikes against the camp. Local officials confirmed the strike, and one ambulance driver reported that dozens were killed and over 100 wounded in the attacks.

2009– Year of the Slave

So, what is a slave? How do we define a slave? What test do we use to tell if someone is a slave. What makes them different from free people?

Free people can say “no”. Free people can refuse demands for their money, time, and children. Slaves cannot. There is no freedom without the freedom to say “no”. If someone demands that you do something and you can say “no” and refuse to do it, then you are a free human being. If you can be forced to do something or surrender something that you do not wish to, then you are a slave. No other test need be applied.

Freedom is the freedom to say "no."

Mitchell Meeting with Netanyahu Again Ends in Failure

Though officials termed the meeting as a “good” one, the second straight day of talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US envoy George Mitchell again failed to yield any agreement on a settlement freeze that would allow the resumption of peace talks.

Israel is not interested in peace; it is only interested in territory, obtained by any means necessary.

Insurance Company Must Pay $10 Million For Revoking Policy Of Teen With HIV

The South Carolina Supreme Court has ordered an insurance company to pay $10 million for wrongly revoking the insurance policy of a 17-year-old college student after he tested positive for HIV. The court called the 2002 decision by the insurance company "reprehensible."

That appears to be the most an insurance company has ever been ordered to pay in a case involving the practice known as rescission, in which insurance companies retroactively cancel coverage for policyholders based on alleged misstatements - sometimes right after diagnoses of life-threatening diseases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the health insurance Obama will order you all to buy.

Report: Gen. McChrystal Seeking Another 40,000 Troops for Afghanistan

Despite claims earlier in the day from President Barack Obama that no ‘immediate decision’ was pending on Afghanistan, Fox News is quoting sources in the government as saying General Stanley McChrystal has already made his long-awaited troop request, and it’s a doozy.

Gen. McChrystal is now ‘privately’ requesting another 40,000 troops for the eight year old war, which would bring the overall US presence there to well over 100,000 troops, and nearly triple the number in the nation with President Obama was elected last November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

40,000 more troops? From where, without a draft?!?!?

The only way this might be possible is the hiring of more mercenaries for hire, and I'm sure that the corporate owners of those"rent-a-soldier" companies are salivating, hearing this request from Mc Crystal.

White House: Criticism of Obama not based on race

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do not kid yourself that this statement will end the issue. This is a calculated move to fan the debate of whether racism lies underneath opposition to Obama or not. At the end of this path lies the agenda of splitting up Americans along racial lines, all the better to keep them, blacks and white, willing slaves to the government.

5 Reasons for Caution in the Stock Market and Housing Casino. Public Private Investment Program gives it a go. $64 Million Gives you Access to $1.3 Billion in Unpaid Principal.

It is official that the stock market has gone into full casino mode. Since the March low the S&P 500 has rallied to the tune of 60 percent. The only other time you will see such a fierce rally was during the Great Depression. Yet what people fail to see in the current system is the massive amounts of government sponsored juice and housing-roids that are making the system act like it just drank 10 cans of Red Bull. Ultimately after all this partying runs its course, another deep hangover is going to happen. Interestingly enough, if you look at the market sentiment in 1929 you would be hard pressed to find dissenting voices. Those that did make any noise were pushed to the back and the media simply did not cover their warnings.

Iran attack: Israel ex-min sees end-yr deadline

Israel will be compelled to attack Iran's nuclear sites if Western powers cannot agree crippling sanctions against Tehran by the end of the year, a former Israeli deputy defense minister said on Wednesday. Ephraim Sneh, who holds no position in the current Israeli government and was speaking in his personal capacity, told Reuters it was not clear the United States and European Union had the decisiveness to take such steps, which should include tougher banking and oil curbs, by year's end.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel, the US, Germany, France, and the UK cannot possibly get the sanctions from the UN Security Council, because Russia and China will veto.

Sanctions placed by said countries cannot work, because other countries will be glad to pick up the slack by providing Iran with whatever is being sanctioned.

So short of an outright attack, the only trick left in the bag is a naval blockade, which will, accurately, be interpreted by Iran as an act of war, and then we're off and running.

Steve Rosen Accuses AIPAC of Espionage

Steven J. Rosen’s defamation lawsuit against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is now entering a critical phase. A series of cross-filings stakes out the critical court terrain. Rosen intends to show that obtaining and leveraging classified U.S. government information in the service of Israel is common practice at AIPAC. He claims it was unfair for AIPAC to fire and malign him in the press after he was indicted on espionage charges in 2005. AIPAC’s defense team is committed to getting the case thrown out on technicalities before it goes to trial early next year.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Black Sea Crisis Deepens As US-NATO Threat To Iran Grows

Tensions are mounting in the Black Sea with the threat of another conflict between U.S. and NATO client state Georgia and Russia as Washington is manifesting plans for possible military strikes against Iran in both word and deed.

Abkhazian President Sergei Bagapsh ordered his nation's navy to respond to Georgia's forceful seizure of civilian ships in neutral waters, calling such actions what they are - piracy - by confronting and if need be sinking Georgian navy and coast guard vessels. The Georgian and navy and coast guard are trained by the United States and NATO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting timing here; right on cue....

One has to wonder if we're looking for a military confrontation between Israel and the US against before the end of this year.

Right now, I wouldn't bet against that.

Israel: UN Gaza Report "Makes A Mockery Of History"

President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that the Goldstone report, which accuses Israel of committing war crimes during its military offensive in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip earlier this year, "makes a mockery of history."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Shimon Perez; this report doesn't make a "mockery of history" (which every Israeli justification of the wounding and killing of innocent non-combatants does): it tells history, for once, so that the international community has absolutely no doubts whatsoever as to what was done in the latest attack against Gaza.

All of the screaming, moaning, and lying on the part of the Netanyahu government cannot and will not change that.

Sheriff says using military weapon on crowds ‘isn’t controversial’

The purchase of the so-called “sonic weapon” by the sheriff’s department set off shockwaves after it was reported last week by East County Magazine in California. The weapons, formally known as “long-range acoustic devices,” are used in the Iraq theater as a deterrent against crowds and emit an intolerable noise that can be targeted with extreme accuracy.

“If you accidentally flip that switch and someone is within a 30-foot range, they can have their eardrums burst, bleeding in the inner ear, and it can result in an aneurysm or death,” Examiner.com reporter Kim Dvorac said in a radio interview Wednesday cited by the magazine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what has got the San Diego Sheriff's department so potentially terrified of its own people that their response to that terror was the purchase of this weapon?

German workers 'trigger' earthquake by drilling

Rudolf Braun, an expert in the safety of geothermal energy projects, there was no question that geothermal energy projects were capable of triggering small earthquakes.

“You need to have some weak earthquakes in order to create a geothermal reservoir containing enough water to generate commercial amounts of power,” he said. “You need to have some small seismic disruptions to achieve this. So the question is not whether or not they cause earthquakes but to what degree they might cause damage.”

Thank You Jimmy Carter - Media trying to polish the turd!

Of the angry opposition the president's been facing, Carter said: "I think it's based on racism. There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh? Then who voted him into office?

What Obama is doing is recycling Israel's favorite tactic, which is to scream "Anti-Semite" at every criticism.

For example....

"Why did you kill Rachel Corrie?"

"You're an anti-Semite!"

"Why did you commit war crimes in Gaza?"

"You're an anti-Semite!"

"Why are you building illegal settlements on Palestinian land?"

"You're an anti-Semite!"

"Why do you persist in defying the United Nations?"

"You're an anti-Semite! And so is the United Nations!!!"

Now obviously Obama cannot use the word "Anti-Semite". He uses a different word, "Racist", but the intent is the same.

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end the wars?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end the torture?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end domestic spying?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why are you looting the people to make the bankers richer?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why are you selling us health care reform that doesn't reform anything except the costs (upward)?"

"You must be a racist!"

And so forth and so on, etc.

It is an old trick, and it is a sign of the government's desperation to play this card, since it is already so worn out from Israel's constant over-use.

Last Saturday sent a clear message that the entire American people are united against a common enemy, the government. The government's plan is apparently to try to split us back up along racial lines (See Pills Limbaugh's

comment about needing segregated buses lower down).

History has shown that the US Government will gladly create racial tension between whites and blacks in order to keep us all their slaves!

Do NOT fall for it. You are smarter than that!

Truth is stubborn and not relative

Interpretations change, perceptions change, knowledge accumulates and grows, but the truth, the real underlying fundamental truth, stays the same.
At the time, when the people still believed the earth was flat, the people had no way to figure it out, since communication was slow and traveling around the world very hard. But no matter what the people believed, the earth was still a sphere and rotating around itself and the sun...
The truth about what happened in reality on the real September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington, this truth also stays the same, for everyone to uncover, recognize and accept.
Afterwards everyone has to adjust his or her belief-system about the world around him to the new found facts, and then decide where to go from there.

Racism isn't the engine driving opposition to Obama

As the president's approval ratings fall and rise and fall again, some of his supporters in journalism and politics are returning to days of old when the label "racist" could end any discussion and force the accused either into stunned silence, or groveling repentance.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"You're an anti-Semite! And so is the United Nations!!!"

Now obviously Obama cannot use the word "Anti-Semite". He uses a different word, "Racist", but the intent is the same.

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end the wars?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end the torture?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end domestic spying?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why are you looting the people to make the bankers richer?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why are you selling us health care reform that doesn't reform anything except the costs (upward)?"

"You must be a racist!"

And so forth and so on, etc.

It is an old trick, and it is a sign of the government's desperation to play this card, since it is already so worn out from Israel's constant over-use.

Last Saturday sent a clear message that the entire American people are united against a common enemy, the government. The government's plan is apparently to try to split us back up along racial lines (See Pills Limbaugh's
comment about needing segregated buses lower down).

History has shown that the US Government will gladly create racial tension between whites and blacks in order to keep us all their slaves!

Do NOT fall for it. You are smarter than that!

Limbaugh: We need segregated buses

In a remark extraordinary even by the standards of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, the right-wing radio heavyweight declared on his program Wednesday that the United States needed to return to racially segregated buses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The plan appears to be to try to split America into tiny pieces along racial lines so that we cannot stand up to the government.

Pretty obvious.

Pretty pathetic.

I presume that everyone reading this, regardless of race, is far too smart to fall for such an ancient and obvious trick.

Thanks for Voting for Obama

....the Left has tipped its hand, believing it has a mandate from the American people to quickly ram the last vestiges of socialism down its throat. Obama may have been disingenuous on the campaign trail – with the exception of a few "gaffs" such as the Joe the Plumber remark – but he has exposed himself since taking office, and we owe it all to John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Jon Stewart to media on ACORN: “Where the hell were you?

Ottawa sends body bags to Manitoba reserves

Aboriginal leaders in Manitoba are horrified that some of the reserves hardest hit by swine flu in the spring have received dozens of body bags from Health Canada.

The body bags — which were sent to the remote northern reserves of Wasagamack and God's River First Nation — came in a shipment of hand sanitizers and face masks.

'Don't send us body bags. Help us organize; send us medicine.'—Grand Chief David Harper

Grand Chief David Harper, who represents northern First Nations, says body bags send the wrong message and no one can understand why Ottawa would do such a thing.

Exposing the Criminal Cover-Up of 9/11

In The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report about 9/11is Unscientific and False, David Ray Griffin provides an overwhelmingly convincing case that the latest official US government account of the events at “Ground Zero” on September 11, 2001 , is false. He examines in detail the whole series of publications by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) purporting to explain the highly “mysterious” collapse of World Trade Center 7, a 47-story steel-framed skyscraper across the street from the North Tower, which was not struck by a plane and yet collapsed into its footprint, at nearly free-fall speed, shortly after 5 PM that day.

Recently, the USCIS had 6,000 citizenship applicants pilot a newer version of this test. The agency reported a 92.4 percent passing rate among citizenship applicants on the first try. Unfortunately, Oklahoma high-school students scored alarmingly low on the test, passing at a rate of only 2.8 percent.

Congressman Grayson: Fed Secretly "Stuffed" $500 Billion into "Foreign Private Pockets" and Gave $230 Billion to Citi "As a Secret Bailout"

Just a few weeks ago, while Chairman Bernanke was testifying to Congress, we examined the Fed balance sheet and P&L statement only to find what looked like the Fed handing over half a trillion dollars to foreigners. This was very surprising! When I asked Chairman Bernanke if this was true, he said, “Yes.” When I asked him who got the money, he said, “Fourteen foreign Central Banks.” And when I asked to who did they give the money, he said, “I don’t know.” “I don’t know” is not good enough when you’re talking about $500 billion. That’s $1700 for every man, woman, and child in this country...

Washington’s “good war” Death squads, disappearances and torture in Pakistan

As the Obama administration prepares a major escalation of the so-called AfPak war, reports from Pakistan’s Swat Valley, near Afghanistan’s eastern border, provide a gruesome indication of the kind of war that the Pentagon and its local allies are waging.

While touted by Obama and his supporters as the “good war,” there is mounting evidence that the Pentagon and the CIA are engaged in a war against the population of the region involving death squads, disappearances and torture

One in Three Think Obama Might Be the Anti-Christ

Poll: One in Three New Jersey Conservatives Thinks Obama Might Be the Anti-Christ

- Twelve percent of McCain voters think Obama is the Anti-Christ. Twenty-one percent are not sure.

- Fourteen percent of Republicans think Obama is the Anti-Christ. Fifteen percent are not sure.

- Eighteen percent of “conservative” voters think Obama is the Anti-Christ. Seventeen percent are not sure.

The big surprise here–the group of voters most likely to think Obama is the Anti-Christ are … Hispanics, who solidly backed Obama in 2008. Only 58 percent of them say, for sure, that their president is not Satan come to wreak havoc here on earth.

Sword-wielding Hopkins student kills intruder

Intruder was repeat offender, released from prison Saturday

Hours earlier, someone had broken into John Pontolillo's house and taken two laptops and a video-game console. Now it was past midnight, and he heard noises coming from the garage out back.

The Johns Hopkins University undergraduate didn't run. He didn't call the police. He grabbed his samurai sword.

With the 3- to 5-foot-long, razor-sharp weapon in hand, police say, Pontolillo crept toward the noise.He noticed a side door in the garage had been pried open. When a man inside lunged at him, police say, the confrontation was fatal.

Is Carter right to label Obama row 'racist'?

U.S. to Shelve Nuclear-Missile Shield

Defense Plans for Poland, Czech Republic to Be Dropped as Iran Rocket Threat Downgraded; Moscow Likely to Welcome Move

WASHINGTON -- The White House will shelve Bush administration plans to build a missile-defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic, according to people familiar with the matter, a move likely to cheer Moscow and roil the security debate in Europe.

The U.S. will base its decision on a determination that Iran's long-range missile program has not progressed as rapidly as previously estimated, reducing the threat to the continental U.S. and major European capitals, according to current and former U.S. officials.

US Spec Ops operates psywar websites targeted at UK

The secretive US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has awarded arms globocorp General Dynamics a $10m contract to set up a network of psychological-warfare "influence websites" supporting the Global War On Terror. France and Britain are specifically included as "targeted regions".

SOCOM is principally famous for its large contingents of elite, secret operatives from all four US armed services (Navy SEALs, Green Berets, Delta Force, Team-6/DevGru, "the Activity" etc etc). What's less well-known about the organisation is that it also includes the US forces' active psychological-warfare apparatus. According (pdf) to the 4th Airborne Psychological Operations Group - the only full-time psywar unit in the US Army, and part of SOCOM:

Tragedy and Hope – An Introduction

"...[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. this system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations….

If it is true it only means that US strategists had not thought of anything new. Roman Emperor Nero set Rome on fire to blame Christians for that. Hitler set Reichstag ablaze to lay the blame for it on his adversaries.

I will say something about the jpost, the have published a few of my comments on this story.

Seems to read a little funny - things like

It is a certainty to all of our secret services. Iran is working today on a nuclear [weapons] program," Sarkozy told lawmakers from his UMP party on Tuesday, according to Press TV.

make you wonder. Or this

"We cannot let Iran acquire nuclear" weapons because it would also be a threat to Israel, he added.

Charlie Gibson - helping prove Mike Rivero and the bloggers right.

Sorry, this is at least 48 hours old in the news cycle but I see no one beat me to posting this here. When I heard it I immediately thought of Rivero and what he has said on the subject of MSM vs bloggers. I feel a little sad for Gibson and the way he is being portrayed here but it is hard to miss the "signal" of how the bloggers, invoked by name here, have taken charge of things.

And then Gibson went on to parrot the "Obama opponents are racist" narrative and I feel less sorry for him.

Why There is No Right to Healthcare

There is no right to an education, or to an income, or to housing, or to credit, anymore than there is a right to a luxury yacht. Who will be forced to fulfill the debts and obligations both financial and physical imposed by the government acting on behalf of those exercising such "rights?" What about the rights of these individuals? No - we have a right to pursue material values but not to material values. Rights promise freedom, not commodities.

Call for an Afghan Surge

Their support makes it easier for Obama to approve the plans of Gen. Stanley McChrystal -- whom the Obama administration installed as the top American commander in Kabul -- when he submits a formal request later this month for as many as 40,000 new troops, in addition to 62,000 now there.

'National disaster' looms as one in five young Britons are now unemployed

Britain is facing a 'national disaster' as youth unemployment hits record levels, senior economists warned yesterday.

Nearly a fifth of those aged between 16 and 24 are unable to find work - a total of 947,000 young people.

That has helped drive Britain's overall jobless total up by 210,000 in the three months to July.

The new total of 2.47million is the highest in 14 years. The unemployment rate has jumped to 7.9 per cent from 5.6 per cent a year ago.

How UK oil company Trafigura tried to cover up African pollution disaster

The Guardian can reveal evidence today of a massive cover-up by the British oil trader Trafigura, in one of the worst pollution disasters in recent history.

Internal emails show that Trafigura, which yesterday suddenly announced an offer to pay compensation to 31,000 west African victims, was fully aware that its waste dumped in Ivory Coast was so toxic that it was banned in Europe.

Thousands of west Africans besieged local hospitals in 2006, and a number died, after the dumping of hundreds of tonnes of highly toxic oil waste around the country's capital, Abidjan. Official local autopsy reports on 12 alleged victims appeared to show fatal levels of the poisonous gas hydrogen sulphide, one of the waste's lethal byproducts.
