Orly Taitz Told Me to Lie, Claim That Obama Had People Killed

The affidavit that Obama foe Larry Sinclair claims to have filed in a California court, in which he accuses birther Orly Taitz of trying to get him to lie on the stand, is available right here. In it, Sinclair recounts being ushered into Taitz’s office and being told by her to “testify that three (3) member (sic) of Obama’s church were murder (sic).” Sinclair claims to have recoiled at this, at which point Taitz encouraged him to say it anyway.

“Israel” And The US Try To Manipulate The IAEA´s Work

In last months, Israel and its agents in the United States have increased their pressure on the International Atomic Energy Agency in order to force the agency to change its conclusions about the Iranian nuclear programme. The IAEA has repeatedly claimed that there is no evidence of military nuclear activities in Iran. However, some countries in the West, spearheaded by the United States and Israel, accuse Iran of pursuing a nuclear weapons programme under the guise of peaceful enrichment activities although they have failed to provide any evidence supporting their accusations.

How US tax breaks fund Israeli settlers

Israeli peace activists are planning to ratchet up their campaign against groups in the United States that raise money for settlers by highlighting how tax exemptions are helping to fund the expansion of illegal settlements in the West Bank.

Gush Shalom, a small peace group that advocates Israel’s withdrawal from the occupied territories, is preparing to send details to the US tax authorities questioning the charitable status of several organizations.

Adam Keller, a spokesman, said these operations’ tax-exempt status meant that “settlement expansion is effectively being subsidized out of the pockets of the US taxpayer and government”.

How low will Israel stoop to win the propaganda war?

The manual teaches how to justify the slaughter, the ethnic cleansing, the land-grabbing, the cruelty and the blatant disregard for international law and UN resolutions, and make it all smell sweeter with a liberal squirt of the aerosol of persuasive language. It is designed to hoodwink us ignorant and gullible Americans and Europeans into believing that we actually share values with the racist regime in Israel and that its abominable behaviour is therefore deserving of our support.

Gold Rises to 18-Month High on Inflation Concern, Weaker Dollar

Gold climbed to an 18-month high in London on concern that a global economic recovery may stoke inflation and on a drop by the dollar that boosted demand for the metal as an alternative investment.

The worst U.S. recession since the 1930s has probably ended, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said yesterday. The U.S. Dollar Index slid to its lowest level in almost a year as a more optimistic economic outlook reduced demand for the currency’s relative safety. Gold is trading 1.7 percent below a record $1,032.70 an ounce set in London in March 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The dollar hits a new low and Bernanke announces the recession is over? I do not think so. The government HAS to hyper-inflate to pay its debts off. We the people are out of money.

The government has only three choices left.

1. Abdicate. (Not likely)

2. Hyper-inflate (very likely)

3. Start WW3 to try to kill off the people the government owes money to. (Strong possibility)

Former KGB Colonel: It’s America’s turn to lose in Afghanistan

Former KGB Special Forces Colonel Oleg Balashov, who took part in the Soviet military campaign in Afghanistan, told RT he doubts more U.S. soldiers will increase the chances of victory.

They do not call Afghanistan the Graveyard of Empires for nothing. The last military commander to actually conquer and hang onto Afghanistan was Alexander the Great, and he only kept it for three years.

FBI unit set for more anti-terror raids in Queens; Fears of Madrid-style subway bombings - sources

Fearful of a Madrid-style subway train bombing, authorities are poised to make more raids to seize bomb-making materials at locations in Queens, sources said Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More "Booga Booga" to remind the people why they need the Lord High Chancellor, I mean The President.

Except of course they have not actually found any bombs or bomb-making materials in the raids so far, not even with their loosy-goosy definition of "bomb making material" which includes ordinary plumbing supplies and first aid disinfectants.

By Paul Craig Roberts
Sep 14, 2009, 00:24
Obama represents the same ideology of American “exceptionalism“ as other recent presidents.
Nothing is any different under Obama. Obama has escalated war in Afghanistan; started a new war in Pakistan; tolerated or supported a military coup that overthrew the elected president of Honduras; is constructing seven new US military bases in Colombia, South America;...is working to destabilize the government in Iran,... The Obama administration’s...platitudes are useful also to disguise the overthrow of US civil liberties, such as habeas corpus, due process, and prohibitions against torture and preemptive arrest.

More occupation (i.e Somalia) More troops (i.e Afghanstian,Iraq).More oligarchy.More of the same.

The war on terror,as of this morning,has just expanded into new territory – one that goes beyond the scope of the previous administration,causing many to question what change the Obama administration has truly brought to the table in terms of foreign policy. Not only is the United States losing control and support for the other two wars we are currently involved in (i.e Afghanistan,Iraq) but now the current administration has given the green light to expand the front to include the small nation of Somalia,according to the Associated Press

Russia Warns Georgia Away From Abkhaz Coast

In the wake of weeks of naval blockades by neighboring Georgia, the Republic of Abkhazia announced today that it has signed a military defense pact with Russia, one which Russia says will be aimed at preventing Georgia from attempting to occupy the separatist enclave.

Following the pact, the Russian Coast Guard has warned that it will not allow the naval blockade to continue, and says it will detain any Georgian military ships which attempt to enter Abkhaz waters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This war of words could escalate into a war of actual combat in a heartbeat; all it will take is one incident to trigger something ugly.

US to Pump Thousands of ‘Combat Enablers’ Into Afghanistan

Top US defense officials say that roughly 3,000 additional troops, which are classified not as combat troops but rather “combat enablers,” will be deployed to Afghanistan in the coming days.

Rather, it now seems that the non-combat troops are being replaced by the combat troops, and then new non-combat troops are being added as well, effectively an escalation of the number of troops involved in the conflict under the guise of adding “non-combat” troops. This escalation comes in addition to the expected request of another 20,000 troops from Gen. McChrystal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Combat Enablers"?!?!? Have these people lost their minds completely?!?

Paul Craig Roberts: Why Propaganda Trumps Truth

Naive people think that if the US government’s explanation of 9/11 was wrong, physicists and engineers would all speak up. Some have (see above). However, for most physicists and engineers this would be an act of suicide. Physicists owe their careers to government grants, and their departments are critically dependent on government funding. A physicist who speaks up essentially ends his university career. If he is a tenured professor, to appease Washington the university would buy out his tenure as BYU did in the case of the outspoken Steven Jones.

An engineering firm that spoke out would never again be awarded a government contract. In addition, its patriotic, flag-waving customers would regard the firm as a terrorist apologist and cease to do business with it.

US Sending 1,000 More Troops to Iraq

Though the Iraq War has long since become an after-thought amid Obama Administration claims that the “drawdown” in on track, the Pentagon is reporting today that Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has approved a request to send about 1,000 additional troops to Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that the Pentagon cannot distinguish between a "drawdown" and a "buildup" of forces in Iraq.

Obama Urged to Ready Tougher Iran Sanctions, Military Strike

The U.S. should begin preparing crippling sanctions on Iran and publicly make clear that a military strike is possible should the Iranian government press ahead with its nuclear effort, a bipartisan policy group said.

“If biting sanctions do not persuade the Islamic Republic to demonstrate sincerity in negotiations and give up its enrichment activities, the White House will have to begin serious consideration of the option of a U.S.-led military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities,” said the study from the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if any of these people have close family serving in any branches of the US military. I'd almost be willing to bet a nearly worthless US dollar they don't.

One also has to wonder if they have chosen to disbelieve Russia and China's warning that an attack on Iran will cause the next global war.

And yet, there they go again, hog-wild in anticipation of "neutralizing" yet another of Israel's existential threats in the region.

And for Israel, any neighboring Arab country is an existential threat; even those countries with which it has signed peace treaties.

Elderly Torontonian furious over violent arrest by police who thought he was suicidal

[...] two Toronto police officers - answering the same 911 call, but arriving later - suddenly appeared, and, he said, "the whole mood changed."

Both were decades younger and heavier - Mr. McArthur is a trim 165 pounds - and they were brooking no discussion, no argument. They simply announced they were taking him into custody and to hospital under the Mental Health Act.

"Wait a minute," Mr. McArthur said he sputtered. "I'm not sick, I'm not suicidal, I'm not going into custody."

They grabbed him, spun him around, and with one officer shoving a hand hard on the back of his neck, forced him face first onto his bed.

"I'm resisting," Mr. McArthur said bluntly. "I'm saying 'Please don't do this.' I'm flailing around."

India denies firing by Chinese troops across LAC

Recent incursions by Chinese troops into Indian territory have created anxiety about China's aggressive designs in some quarters in India.

The Indian government has, however, sought to play down the incursions, saying these are routine incidents that occur due to differences in perception about the Line of Actual Control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

India may well have every real reason to be concerned by these recent incursions.

Fighting rages across Afghanistan as U.S. military buildup continues

Attacks by anti-occupation forces spread across Afghanistan over the weekend, with major armed clashes, bombings and other incidents in at least 10 provinces, including eight that are outside the southern region where the U.S. and NATO forces have launched a major military offensive.

Rather than directly confront the greatly increased U.S. ground forces in provinces like Helmand, the Taliban and other resistance forces are employing typical guerrillas tactics, striking at “soft” targets well away from the main combat zone, in many cases in areas where there has been relatively little insurgent activity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, 8 years on, this is what "victory" in Afghanistan looks like?!?

The only way this can look like "victory" if the desired outcome had to do with the complete and chronic destabilization of the country.

If that is not the case, the US and NATO have absolutely no strategy whatsoever in Afghanistan, period, end of discussion.

Netanyahu, Mitchell fail to strike deal on settlements

Israel and the United States on Tuesday remain locked in a stalemate over continued construction in West Bank settlements after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. peace envoy George Mitchell failed to come to an understanding on the matter.

Israel will take everything and give nothing in return.

A company run by the son of Chinese Pesident Hu Jintao, who does business with Iran, Cuba and Venzuela, was hired a year ago for $1.9 million to X-ray cargo being loaded on to cruise ships in Los Angeles.

Ann Curry In Iran To Interview Ahmadinejad

Curry's interview will air Thursday on "Today" and "NBC Nightly News" and Friday morning on "Today."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Get ready for a hatchet job of an interview, very much along the lines of "when did you stop beating your wife?!?"

The timing, and the rebroadcasting of this interview, is a propaganda move, most probably engineered by the producers at NBC, to make Ahmadinejad appear to be worse than the devil himself.

It appears that NBC is hoping that such an interview can assist shaping US public opinion toward favoring a US/Israeli-led attack on Iran. And remember: any good television editor can take an interview like this, and turn it any which way they please, with some judicious cutting.

Whistleblower: Baucus health bill an ‘absolute gift’ to insurers

The health care reform plan proposed by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus is an “absolute gift” to health care insurance companies, says an industry whistleblower.

Wendell Potter, a former executive at Cigna, said the Baucus plan “would not provide affordable coverage … gives the industry too much latitude to charge higher premiums based on age and geographic location, fails to mandate employer coverage, and pushes consumers into plans with limited benefits,” Politico reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported here on 16 June, 2009:

http://www.democracynow.org/2009/6/16/report_senator_max_baucus_received_more

"Montana Senator Max Baucus, the chair of the Senate Finance Committee, is the Senate’s point man on healthcare reform. A new article in the Montana Standard finds that Senator Baucus has received more campaign money from health and insurance industry interests than any other member of Congress. The article says, “In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals.”"

Baucus is simply another extremely overt "corpritute" who takes money from those insurance interests which supports him, and delivers the goods in terms of legislation which benefits his supporters, but absolutely does not benefit We the People.

US troops kill Fallujah ’shoe-thrower’

Residents told an AFP reporter in Fallujah that Ahmed Latif, 32, whom they said was mentally disturbed, insulted the soldiers as they patrolled in the centre of the city, and then hurled a shoe at them.

“Positive identification of the attacker was made, and US forces fired in self-defence wounding the attacker,” the army said in a statement.

The incident came a day after Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi was freed after spending nine months in jail for throwing his shoes at former US president George W. Bush during a visit to Baghdad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Terrific: the US military just created a martyr out of a mentally disturbed Iraqi.

The federal Reserve does not want an audit, because the moment the American people see how much of their wealth has gone to this private bank there will be hell to pay. The Fed has dropped a few veiled threats that they will crash the economy rather than allow an audit. Very well, go ahead and crash it! The end result will be the same.

The Truth About the Health Care Bills

This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights.

Health-Care Reform and the Constitution

Last week, I asked South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, where in the Constitution it authorizes the federal government to regulate the delivery of health care. He replied: "There's nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do." Then he shot back: "How about [you] show me where in the Constitution it prohibits the federal government from doing this?"

Rep. Clyburn, like many of his colleagues, seems to have conveniently forgotten that the federal government has only specific enumerated powers. He also seems to have overlooked the Ninth and 10th Amendments, which limit Congress's powers only to those granted in the Constitution.

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has nothing to do with taxation (although they will take the money) because a mileage-based tax can be collected using the odometer and is already collected via gasoline taxes. The more you drive the more tax you pay.

This is about tracking your vehicle at any and all time by the government.

Mix-up on John Demjanjuk? 2nd JD lived in same home town, died in the 60s

After the revelations on the forgery on the alleged SS-ID-card of John Demjanjuk here another new indication, that the trial against John Demjanjuk could turn out as the biggest judicial scandal of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Webmaster's Commentary: 

Short version, there were two men named Ivan Demjanjuk living in the same village in 1942. Both left for the war. One left for America, the other returned to the village and committed suicide, according to one report when he learned KGB were trying to arrest him as a Nazi collaborator. It is this suicide victim who is thought by many to have been the death camp guard. Israel had the wrong man in 1988 and Germany has the wrong man today. But in the minds of the Nazi hunters, accusation of complicity in the Holocaust is such a serious charge that even innocence must never be allowed as a defense.

President Barack Obama has once again betrayed his promise to restore liberties eviscerated by the Bush regime by pushing Congress to renew Patriot Act provisions that allow for warrantless spying on American citizens, even in cases where there is no link to terrorism whatsoever.

The Most Dangerous Virus in the World.

The people who decide what doctors can and cannot do and what doctors can and cannot tell you are permanent bed-partners with various corporations for whom good health is a bad thing. These are the pharmaceutical concerns; the AMA, the hospital equipment industry and related suppliers of related products. These corporations have another relationship with the various food industries in the sense that they will not write or permit policy that impinges on major enterprises that bring you processed foods, fast foods, mystery meats, candy and soft drinks and whatever else hides under that umbrella.

Blackwater: bulging biceps fueled by ideological purity

Blackwater soldiers, often with Navy SEAL or Army Special Operations backgrounds, are paid from $500 to $1,500 a day, far more than regular-duty troops. Their image is straight from central casting: young men, tanned biceps bulging from black T-shirts, wearing wraparound sunglasses and brandishing automatic weapons. For young veterans who loved military action but couldn't afford to stay in, Blackwater offered big money and plenty of opportunities to order people around. Blackwater's aggressive guards became the image of American cultural insensitivity, sometimes erasing the best efforts of our uniformed soldiers.

CIA linked to Benazir Bhutto’s assassination?

According to investigative journalist and RT contributor Wayne Madsen, “This assassination team may have targeted politicians in other countries. One name mentioned was former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who may have been a victim of this program. The other name is Jonas Savimbi, the former Angolan UNITA leader, who may have outlived his usefulness as far as Mr Cheney is concerned.”

Hopkins student kills man with 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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Posted for those who "commented" on the Samurai sword seen in the studio webcam a while back. :P

Democrats now comprise majority of ‘most corrupt in Congress’ list

Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington was once characterized as a liberal group on a witch hunt to oust then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX).

Not anymore. On Tuesday, the Washington watchdog group released its list of what it called the “most corrupt members of Congress” — and Democrats, who now control both chambers of Congress, comprise the majority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think we are past the debate on which party is more corrupt. Both are corrupt, and arguing over who deserves the tallest tree and the shortest rope is pointless.

Poll suggests 29 per cent of Canadians believe 9-11 myth, more than U.S.

In the Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey, conducted this summer in the United States and Canada, 29 per cent of Canadian respondents said they believed some of the hijackers accessed the U.S. through Canada eight years ago.

Only 19 per cent of American respondents agreed.

The data flies in the face of conventional wisdom among many Canadians that the 9-11 myth prevails because of ignorance on behalf of their U.S. neighbours.

Janet Napolitano, Obama's homeland security secretary, fanned the flames of Canadian indignation earlier this year when she suggested she believed the myth to be true as she reviewed Canada-U.S. border policy.

Move to choke off Federal money from ACORN

“It is evident that ACORN is incapable of using federal funds in a manner that is consistent with the law,” Boehner and the other Republicans told the president. “Simply put, ACORN should not receive another penny of American taxpayers’ money.”

One ACORN insider estimated that the group, and groups affiliated with it, receive $1.5 million to $2 million annually from the federal government, with the bulk of the groups’ money coming from state and local governments.

48% of Consumers Interested in Purchasing a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle

I wanna say something about all these poll's, 1) you can make a poll say anything by finding people with the answers you want (1a) WRH polls do not do this 2) WRH polls usually have way more respondents then any other "Official" polls including this one. So in a nut-shell i believe any WRH poll more then any poll done by anyone, everyone else poll's i see is not worth a grain of salt

The Mysterious Collapse of WTC Seven and the Mysterious death of Barry Jennings

from Inside WTC 7: Besides ignoring these and other reports of explosions made by people outside Building 7, NIST distorted the testimony of two highly credible men who were inside: Michael Hess, who was New York City’s corporation counsel, and Barry Jennings, the deputy director of the Emergency Services Department of the New York City Housing Authority.

Resolving Our Internal Conflict is the Second Step

Fighting an enemy is a multistep process. Identification of the enemy is first - how else can one know who to target? In a previous post the identification of enemies of the American people was discussed. Once the enemy has been defined one is faced with combating this enemy. In our case we will consider defeating a domestic enemy.

THE STRUGGLE FOR AMERICA

Saving money sounds like a good idea, but there is no country with socialized medicine which has been able to save money on health care except by murdering people. Germany led the way in the 1930s, and their murder program turned into the Holocaust. Barack Obama is a monster. He has an enormous amount of hate inside him, and he is capable of atrocities of which we have no concept – unless the American people can rally to stop him

Video: Collection of media reports of explosions going off at WTC on 9/11

Bombs, explosions, secondary explosions, explosive devices....how many more times do we need to hear these words being said by 9/11 witnesses before we start asking questions about what really happened on that awful day?

This video shows that many actual 9/11 witnesses heard and saw explosions going off inside the towers, long before they actually fell. These witnesses include police, firemen and reporters.

And what is even more shocking is the fact that all of this has been largely ignored by the mainstream media after the day itself.

NO MORE TROOPS!! , End the damn wars, Cowardly Liar!

NO MORE TROOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
16 09 2009
IT’S TIME TO DRAW THE DAMNED LINE, PEOPLE…NO MORE TROOPS! Bush got away with it for eight stinking years, but Obama will not get by with it for even one! Define the mission. Are we defending America or are we fighting a war of aggression? Bush and Cheney were disgraces to posterity and their war was no less ambitious than Hitler’s war. Tell the truth about what you have inherited, Obama. End this war against the world. Tell Mullen and McChrystal that you have drawn the line in Afghanistan and all troops will be pulled-back from Pakistan and the Caucasus Region.
Do the right thing. Joint Chiefs Chairman Mullen says more troops likely needed in Afghanistan

Holocaust movie at every turn - NOTHING about our wonderful allies - the Soviets!

Sometimes the disgusting double standard is maddening. Just think, we entered the war on THESE guy's side - thanks FDR. Not a peep from the movie industry. Funny, that. Imagine the questions that would be raised if the truth about this were to be widely known and what we THOUGHT was a truth about the Nazis ended up being a lie?

This reminds me - I need to read The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

China 'covers suicide bridge in butter'

Government officials in south-east China have ordered workers to cover a 1,000 ft long steel bridge in butter to prevent citizens from using it to attempt suicide.

All the climbable surfaces on the structure in Guangzhou have been covered in greasy fat to put an end to the spate of people threatening to jump from it, The Sun reports.

Government spokesman Shiu Liang said: "We tried employing guards at both ends but that didn't work - and we put up special fences and notices asking people not to commit suicide here.

"None of it worked - and so now we have put butter over the bridge and it has worked very well. Nobody can get up there and nobody who tries ever falls."

Owners of uninsured cars face new fines under new Government curbs

Taxed but uninsured cars left on a public road could be clamped or seized under the new laws which are being unveiled by the Government.

The draconian new powers are intended to tackle an estimated two million uninsured motorists who, the Government says, are responsible for 160 deaths a year.

But the changes have angered civil liberty campaigners and also alarmed motoring groups who fear that law-abiding motorists could be penalised for innocent mistakes, such as allowing their insurance to lapse while they are on holiday.

UN accuses Israel of committing war crimes in Gaza

The report accused Israel of breaking international law by deliberately attacking civilians, using Palestinians as “human shields” and torturing detainees. It added that the continuing Israeli blockade of Gaza could constitute persecution — a crime against humanity.

Good Billions After Bad

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once the money left the building, the government lost all track of it. The Treasury Department knew where it had sent the money, but nothing about what was done with it. Did the money aid the recovery? Was it spent for the purposes Congress intended? Did it save banks from collapse? Paulson’s Treasury Department had no idea, and didn’t seem to care. It never required the banks to explain what they did with this unprecedented infusion of capital.

The intention of Congress when it passed the bailout bill could not have been more clear. The purpose was to buy up defective mortgage-backed securities and other “toxic assets” through the Troubled Asset Relief Program, better known as tarp. But the bill was in fact broad enough to give the Treasury secretary the authority to do whatever he deemed necessary to deal with the financial crisis. If tarp had been a credit card, it would have been called Carte Blanche. That authority was all Paulson needed to switch gears, within a matter of days, and change the entire thrust of the program from buying bad assets to buying stock in banks.

Duh, US national security IS NOT threatened by Afghanistan

The chair of the Joint Chiefs testified to Congress today that “success” in Afghanistan requires more US troops and “certainly much more time.” Senator McCain Orwell-spoke that each day we wait to send more US troops to Afghanistan to put their lives in danger, “puts lives in danger.” President Obama defended the strategy of war to produce peace and happiness by saying, "You never step into the same river twice. And so Afghanistan is not Vietnam." I think the president is absolutely correct with my observations about stepping into the same river for a second time: the experience is not quite the same, only about 99%. Polling data also show American support for this war is at its lowest: 58% disapprove and 39% approve.
