The International Jew - by Henry Ford

It is time to show that the cry of bigot is raised mostly by bigots. There is a religious prejudice in this country; there is, indeed, a religious persecution, there is a forcible shoving aside of the religious liberties of the majority of the people. And this prejudice and persecution and use of force, is Jewish and nothing but Jewish.

This Year: Global Insolvency?

The forecasters at Leap2020 (who have been right in many of their predictions, but wrong in large calls such as the timing of the collapse of the dollar) are predicting that 2009 will be an unfolding year of worldwide insolvency:

A new sequence of the fourth phase (so-called "decanting phase") of the unfolding global systemic crisis has began: the sequence of global insolvency.***

Contrary to what political leaders and their central bankers seem to believe worldwide, the problem of liquidity that they are striving to solve by means of historic interest rate drops and unlimited money creation, is not a cause but a consequence of the current crisis. It is in fact a problem of solvency***

Say No to Cops: A Brief Case for Reduction and Elimination

I am a police skeptic and a former Sheriff’s Deputy. I am increasingly ill at ease with the burgeoning police state, misbehavior of all levels of "law enforcement" and the willing complicity of united States subjects to an ocean of bad laws, both unconstitutional and foolish. What one could call willful submission to illegitimate authority. At every level of policing from local to FLEA (federal law enforcement agencies), the abuse gets exponentially worse with each passing decade and now the Wars on Drugs and Terror have literally loosened the restraints on any remaining (if tattered and threadbare) protections from police mischief. In the end, the robed government employees will, for the most part, excuse or rationalize the criminal or outrageous behavior of the thin blue line.

Crunch 'cost Arabs $2.5 trillion'

BBC News | Middle East | Saturday, Jan 17, 2009

The global economic crisis has cost Arab countries $2,500bn (£1,690bn) in the last four months alone, according to Kuwait's foreign minister.

Stock market falls and a low oil price have contributed to the losses.

"The Arab world has lost $2.5 trillion in the past four months," Mr Sabah said after meeting fellow foreign and finance ministers.

Glenn Greenwald: Establishment Washington unifies against prosecutions

The Washington Post's David Ignatius today does what he does best: serve as the spokesman for the Washington establishment's most conventional wisdom in a way that really illuminates what it is:

To underscore the message, Obama indicated that he would oppose retrospective investigations of wrongdoing by the CIA and other agencies, arguing: "When it comes to national security, what we have to focus on is getting things right in the future, as opposed [to] looking at what we got wrong in the past." This is the kind of realism that will disappoint liberal score-settlers, but it makes clear that Obama has a grim appreciation of the dangers America still faces from al-Qaeda and its allies.

A moral failure of UK media on Gaza

The genocidal Israeli military campaign against the unarmed, imprisoned and besieged people of Gaza which has resulted in the deaths of more than 1,000 Palestinian and just 13 Israelis, is not being accurately reported in the British press.

With a few admirable exceptions, writers and broadcaster in the UK have adopted a biased stance and vocabulary in their coverage of the conflict. The highly influential Zionist lobby and the Labour Friends of Israel within the UK government have been hard at work.

One must not underestimate the career damage journalists, politicians and academics fear in the event of being branded ‘anti-semitic’. Most do not have the moral courage to unreservedly criticise Israel.

The Murderous Zionist Butchers Of Israel

I have no words to describe the Zionist butchers and their crimes in Gaza. The United States along with its Western allies are as guilty murderers as are the beasts in Israel. George W Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condi Rice are the murderers that have to be tried in a court of law for the continuous crimes they have committed.
Having said that; I like to point out that the murderous government of the United States is complicit in these crimes because certain segment of the American population that practice a dirtiest form of cult, falsely named Christians-Evangelicals.

Attempted elimination of bank execs failed?

BofA, Wells Employees Were Aboard Crashed Plane
January 15, 2009, 7:04 pm

What was perhaps the most riveting story in New York on Thursday afternoon had almost nothing to do with finance: a US Airways plane that plunged into the Hudson River on the West Side of Manhattan.

But there was still a banking angle to the story. Among the roughly 150 people on the plane, which was bound for Charlotte, N.C., were employees from both Bank of America and Wells Fargo. Authorities said everyone was safely escorted off the plane.

Bank of America, the troubled Charlotte-based bank, said 23 employees were aboard the plane. Wells Fargo, which acquired Charlotte-based Wachovia, had three employees on board.

A Wells Fargo spokeswoman told Dow Jones Newswires that “all three are safe.”

Canada complicit in Israeli war crimes

By Jim Miles

Canada lives in the unfortunate position of being under the thrall of U.S. media for most of its information and cultural relevance. At the same time, its own media, apart from the national broadcast company, CBC, is highly centralized under the influence of two media empires (Canwest Global and CTV GlobeMedia) who support the same kind of biased coverage that is provided by the U.S.

In sum, Canadians who wish to receive a balanced view of events in the Middle East, Gaza in particular, have to rely on alternate or external media. Canwest Global (Israel Aspers’ media empire) provides nightly updates with little context and “balanced” reporting of showing deaths in Israel from the Qassam rockets as being equally as devastating as the IDF attacks in Gaza.

The Dr has said that these weapons are against international law and that most people coming into the hospital have been injured by this weapon, women and children have been affected by this weapon They are called Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME). Apparently it’s, designed for low “collateral damage” yet, it is highly carcinogenic and harmful to the environment. Doctors in Gaza noticed cases of amputated limbs with evidence of intense heat at the point of amputation but no shrapnel.

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Fathers", Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as "a consulting house to multinational corporations" in New York City, and his functions as a "research assistant" and "financial writer".

The odd part of Obama's story is that he doesn't mention the name of his employer. However, a New York Times story of 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation.10 Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960.11

Ukraine Rejects Once Again Russian Gas Transit

The Ukraine has once again refused to fulfill the request of the Russian energy monopoly "Gazprom" for the transit of 99,2 M cubic meter of gas, the Russian information agency "Novosti" reported Friday.

Novosti are quoting the spokesperson of the Ukrainian "Naftogaz" Valentin Zemlyansky.

Zemlyansky confirmed that the transit of Russian gas through the Ukrainian territory remains impossible.

"Our answer is the same as the one from yesterday: a technology agreement first, gas transit second," the spokesperson declared.

In the mean time there is growing frustration with both countries among European officials.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is due to meet Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Germany on Friday, warned that Russia could damage its reputation as a reliable energy supplier if the dispute continued.

(Bloomberg) -- Bank of America Corp., the largest U.S. bank by assets, posted its first loss since 1991 and cut the dividend to a penny after receiving emergency government funds to support the acquisition of Merrill Lynch & Co.

The fourth-quarter loss of $1.79 billion, or 48 cents a share, compared with net income of $268 million, or 5 cents, a year earlier, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based company said in a statement today. Results didn't include a $15.3 billion loss at Merrill, acquired this month.

Because me and my buddies, who were trained in the Israeli Army, will come and kill every single one of you son-of-a-bitches for what you are doing to destroy Israel. So watch out.

NEW YORK For several days, charges that Israel has been using white phosphorus in its Gaza bombing have spread, unconfirmed but gaining some credibility as some human rights groups have weighed in. But today the charges are reaching critical mass in the wake of the bombing of the main United Nations compound in Gaza City.

Rewriting the First Draft of History

Seeing as how we currently find ourselves hurtling along this downhill run towards new history - the countdown to the day America has itself a president named Obama can be measured in hours instead of days or weeks now - it seems an appropriate moment to pause and reflect on a bit of older history we've already passed through. I'm not talking about any kind of ancient history, mind you. For the purposes of this reflection, we need only take a small leap backwards in time, just six short years ago.

We all passed through the little slice of history that began to take shape in the early months of 2003, and we all remember that time in our own way. Today, however, there is a great deal of effort being expended to make sure this bit of history is remembered differently than how it really happened. An even better result for those exerting this effort would be if this bit of history were not remembered at all. That may, in fact, be their ultimate goal.

Over 1,000 Killed in Gaza Strip Roughly Two-Thirds of Dead Gazans Are Civilians

19 days in, the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip passed another major milestone, with over 1,000 Palestinians killed in the attack. The Gaza-based Palestinian Center for Human Rights, which has been tracking the toll, said 673 of those killed were civilians, with 225 children and 69 women. 13 Israelis have also been killed, three of them civilians, though at least four of those soldiers were killed by the Israeli military.

Red Cross President Jakob Kellenberger described the situation in the Gaza Strip as “shocking” and called for the Israeli military to make more provisions to ensure that ambulances could rescue wounded civilians from the attacks.

Surveyors say that the attack has done at least $1.4 billion in damage to the infrastructure of the tiny strip. Securing the funds will likely be difficult, particularly in the global economic downturn. So far the United Nations has allocated $7 million (less than $5 per Gazan) to provide for them during this time of emergency.

Gaza war rallied world against Israel

The Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, says today the world public opinion is against Israel due to its crimes in the Gaza Strip.

In an interview with Press TV he termed receiving sympathy from the world as "a big victory for Palestinians."

"This war also unveiled the true nature of the Israeli regime," he added.

President Ahmadinejad went on to say that it is obvious that Israel has failed in achieving its "goals in the war on Gaza" and the war mobilized the world nations to help the Palestinians.

The Iranian President added the war also proved that international bodies are incapable in resolving global security issues.

"The UN Security Council is a tool in the hands of some expansionist and aggressive powers."

President Ahmadinejad said any truce agreement between the warring sides must recognize the full rights of the Palestinian people.

The Israeli War on the Gaza Strip: "The Birth Pangs of a New Palestine/Middle East”

The Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip against the Palestinians are part of a larger geo-strategic project. They are part of the “birth pangs of a new Palestine and Middle East” in the eyes of the U.S. and Israel. but this project will not proceed as envisaged by the U.S. and Israel. There is a wind of change and revolt throughout the Middle East and the Arab World. This process is unleashing a new wave of popular resistance directed against the U.S. and Israel, both within and beyond the Arab World.

“Operation Cast Lead” has been planned for almost a year. The “Shoah” (Hebrew word for holocaust) that Matan Vilnai, an Israeli official, promised the Palestinians has been exposed even though many media sources have attempted to whitewash it.

READER: READER: Were the Jews doing this kind of stuff to the German government in 1930?

Thursday, January 15, 2009
If so I can understand why the Germans were so angry at them.

One of the last Chancellors of the Weimar Republic, Dr Heinrich Bruning, said in a 1937 letter to Winston Churchill that;

"I did not and do not even today, for understandable reasons, wish to reveal that from October 1928 the two largest regular contributors to the Nazi Party were the general managers of two of the largest Berlin banks, both of Jewish faith, and one of them the leader of Zionism in Germany."

Upon Mr Hitler's accession to power 30 January 1933 something happened between then and 24 March 1933 when the `glorious` headline - Judea Declares War on Germany - appeared in London's Daily Express newspaper.

I suspect that the Zionist bankers promptly turned up on his doorstep and asked him to deliver on their having so lavishly funded his Party the previous 4 years and 3 months.

War of Choice: How Israel Manufactured the Gaza Escalation

Israel has repeatedly claimed that it had "no choice" but to wage war on Gaza on December 27 because Hamas had broken a ceasefire, was firing rockets at Israeli civilians, and had "tried everything in order to avoid this military operation," as Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni put it.

This claim, however, is widely at odds with the fact that Israel's military and political leadership took many aggressive steps during the ceasefire that escalated a crisis with Hamas, and possibly even provoked Hamas to create a pretext for the assault. This wasn't a war of "no choice," but rather a very avoidable war in which Israeli actions played the major role in instigating.

Shipping rates hit zero as trade sinks

The cost of shipping goods from Asia to Europe has tumbled. "They have already hit zero," said Charles de Trenck, a broker at Transport Trackers in Hong Kong. "We have seen trade activity fall off a cliff. Asia-Europe is an unmit­igated disaster."

Shipping journal Lloyd's List said brokers in Singapore are now waiving fees for containers travelling from South China, charging only for the minimal "bunker" costs. Container fees from North Asia have dropped $200, taking them below operating cost.

Industry sources said they have never seen rates fall so low. "This is a whole new ball game," said one trader.

Kucinich to Introduce Gaza Ceasefire Resolution - Who Will Co-sponsor?

by Robert Naiman

The war in Gaza continues, largely because the Bush Administration has continued to oppose, in practice, an immediate ceasefire. With each day that passes without a ceasefire, more innocents are killed.

Representative Dennis Kucinich plans to introduce a resolution in the House soon calling for an immediate ceasefire. There are a number of whereases in the draft, recounting the human toll of the war and the blockade, but the punchline is very simple:

Resolved, That the House of Representatives calls on the Government of Israel and representatives of Hamas to implement an immediate and unconditional ceasefire and to allow unrestricted humanitarian access in Gaza.

Obama the Liar : the Bin Laden, Al-Qaeda threat

Obama: Al-Qaeda remains 'number one threat' to US
1 hr 16 mins ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) – President-elect Barack Obama said Wednesday that Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden remain the "number one threat" to US security, after a new voice recording emerged from the terror group's leader.

"Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda are our number one threat when it comes to American security," Obama told reporters, after the recording warned the president-elect of new fronts in bin Laden's self-styled holy war against Western interests.

"We're going to do everything in our power to make sure that they cannot create safe havens that can attack Americans. That's the bottom line," Obama added.

The 22-minute audio recording, which the US-based Site Intelligence Group said it believes is authentic, was the first commentary from the Al-Qaeda leader in eight months.

The Oracle From Nebraska Takes a Big Hit.

Yahoo! Finance Stock Ticker Symbol BAC | Bank of America

About six months ago I remember reading a story about Warren Buffet buying a billion dollars worth of Bank of America stock for $38 and change, as he predicted a huge rally for the North Carolina banking behemoth.

Today, Bank of American stock closed at $10.20 falling in after-hours trading.

Thank you, Warren, for that laugh.

Warren is also in over his head with GE stock he bought at a huge discount but which has since fallen way below that. GE closed at $14.11 falling in after-hours trading.

If the Oracle from Nebraska keeps making these bets, he'll end up like Donald Trump, in bankruptcy.

READER: Many WRH readers are probably wondering how Israel can have so much control over the USA government.

Former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, the original director until his death(over 40 years) kept classified files on EVERY MEMBER of Congress and many other individuals that he deemed possible "security risks" to the United States. Most of these files had nothing to do with security, but instead included personal information that could be used to blackmail these people. EVERY President that Hoover served under was afraid of what Hoover might do with this info and it has been claimed by several authors that this is what kept Hoover in as FBI Director for so many years- the threat of blackmail. Read "Official and Confidential" by Anthony Summers to get a good picture of this situation. Ironically, Hoover himself was in all likelihood being blackmailed because he was a homosexual!
