Shalit’s Capture Achieved What No Dialogue Could

Fatah strongman Marwan Barghouti said in an interview on Wednesday that he intends to run in the next Palestinian presidential election, and remarked that the capture of Israeli occupation soldier Gilad Shalit by Gaza resistance fighters achieved what no negotiations could ever achieve.

Obama joins Bush, Congress in War Crimes for false imprisonment, torture at Bagram Prison

The US invaded Afghanistan illegally; the country did not attack the US and their government volunteered to cooperate with extradition of any criminal suspects upon evidence of probable cause. The US refused to provide evidence, did not receive requisite UN Security Council authorization for military action required by US and international law, and illegally invaded in a War of Aggression.

Please pause to verify the fact that the US illegally invaded Afghanistan. When an invasion is illegal, the people fighting US troops are defending their nation against a hostile force. If China invaded the US on such pretext, Americans who did not defend our nation would be called cowards and traitors to the invading horde.

Israel Won’t Accept Hezb'Allah's Membership in the Lebanese Gov’t

sraeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday that Israel will not accept Hezb'Allah's membership in the Lebanese government and will hold Lebanon responsible for any military clash in the north.

"We will not accept the equation whereby a UN member state is home to a militia in possession of 40,000 rockets but also parliament members and ministers," he said while meeting municipal leaders in northern occupied territories.

"The Lebanese government is responsible for any clash rather than the Hezb'Allah, and all of Lebanon's systems will be held accountable."

War And Profits

President Obama is about to make a momentous decision on Afghanistan. He has been mulling over, for the last few weeks, how many more troops he will be sending to McChrystal, to further his counter-insurgency in that country. Ten thousand? Eighty thousand? Whichever, it’s a process of foregone futility. And everybody knows it. But the mainstream media, heavy with punditry, spends endless hours hashing over every detail. And you don’t have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. The propaganda circle from government handout to media coverage is complete.

Israel to suspend settlement growth

Israel's prime minister has announced a 10-month suspension to the construction of new settlement houses in the occupied West Bank.

A spokesman for Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, earlier dismissed the Israeli plan after details of it were outlined in a statement from Netanyahu's office.

"Any return to negotiations must be on the basis of a complete settlement freeze, and in Jerusalem foremost," Nabil Abu Rdainah said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This 10 month "freeze" is an absolute joke, if there is no comprehensive freeze, including Jerusalem and the illegal settlements.

Dollar hits 15-month low; steepest drop since July

The safe-haven dollar slid to a 15-month low against the euro, was within striking distance of 14-year lows versus the yen and dipped below parity against the Swiss franc Wednesday as markets absorbed the Federal Reserve's indication that interest rates will remain at super-low levels for a while and it was not overly concerned by the U.S. currency's decline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know why the writers of this article decided to characterize the current state of the US dollar as a "safe haven"; at this time in our history, it is absolutely not.

Bankruptcies Jump, Hitting Highest Level in Four Years

U.S. bankruptcy filings rose 33 percent in the third quarter to the highest number since 2005, government data show, as rising unemployment and tight credit made it more difficult for consumers and businesses to stay current on their debts.

"With unemployment surpassing 10 percent and credit to businesses remaining tight, consumers and businesses are increasingly turning to the financial relief of bankruptcy," said Samuel Gerdano, executive director of the nonpartisan American Bankruptcy Institute, in a statement.

"Shoots of hope", my astrolabe!!

New Study Shows Ten States Face Fiscal Crisis

California is worst off, but hardly alone. Others include Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin.

The 10 worst off states are examined, but close behind are Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Hawaii. Only two, Montana and North Dakota, are fiscally solvent and expect to meet their 2010 budgets, the latter because it alone has what the others don't - its own bank able to create credit for state businesses and residents at an affordable cost. As a result, with the lowest unemployment rate in the country at 4%, it's created jobs at a time they're vanishing in the other 49 and the District of Columbia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

North Dakota has really played it smart in terms of having its own state bank for the creation of credit; this has obviously made a tremendous difference for its economy.

Oil thirst ’set to outstrip supply’

According to a Reuters poll of 10 top oil-tracking analysts and organisations, oil demand is predicted to rise by 1.3 million barrels per day next year to 85.9 million bpd.

At the same time, the rise in production from outside Opec and output of natural gas liquids from Opec members is seen rising by just 800,000 bpd in total.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is driving many US geopolitical decisions, unfortunately in the wrong direction.

We have some brilliant minds in this country. We should be working on the kinds of alternative fuels which can power a tank, or an airplane.

That would stop the "oil wars" cold, if these developments weren't immediately snatched up by the oil companies to use when oil is really on the verge of not being available.

Climategate and the “T”-word

Here from the Steve McIntyre’s Climate Audit blog is a breathtakingly short and simple illustration of the values of Dr. Phil Jones, Director of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, from whence all these emails and documents concerning global warming have been lifted.

Phil Jones, Dec 3, 2008:

About 2 months ago I deleted loads of emails, so have very little – if anything at all.

Phil Jones, Nov 24, 2009 Guardian

We’ve not deleted any emails or data here at CRU.

Oops. Forget the “T”-word. How about the “P”-word (prevarication)? Or the “BFL” word (big fat liar)?

Climate change scandal deepens as BBC expert claims he was sent 'cover-up' emails a month before they went public

The controversy surrounding the global warming scandal today deepened after a BBC correspondent admitted he was sent the leaked emails more than a month before they were made public.

Japan's CO2 reduction target may cost households up to $8,600 a year

Meeting Japan's emissions-reduction target may cost households between $1,465 (£878) and $8,600 a year, according to a government-appointed task force.

The group warned that achieving the nation's stated target of cutting CO2 emissions by 25 per cent on 1990 levels by 2020 would lead to a significant fall in disposable income for households, based on the assumption that the goal would be achieved only through domestic efforts – without the purchase of carbon offsets from overseas – and that the nation's economy expands 1.3 per cent annually.

Climate Change Legislation Would Slow Economy, Says Congressional Budget Office

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report on Monday saying that the climate change legislation being considered by Congress could reduce the purchasing power of the middle class and shrink or slow the economy.

The report, “The Costs of Reducing Greenhouse-Gas Emissions,” says market-based regulations such as a cap and trade scheme would boost the cost of emission-intensive activities. In turn, household incomes would shrink along with consumer consumption and savings, real wages would fall, the supply of labor would shrink, and economic investmen

Flashes;From Daily Life In The Gaza Strip

A few days ago, we could finally manage to get school books to all the kids at the SOS Children's Village in Rafah; it was really hard at first; because books were not allowed to get into Gaza Strip.

The shelves at the book shops and the printing companies are almost out of printing supplies due to the shortage of supplies that are not coming to the Gaza Strip.

In the streets; there is a state of eagerness and anxiety prevails the street about what will turn out due of the failure of the peace process which was announced by the Palestinian President and his top assistance, also because of the probability of resolving the Palestinian Authority, break up the Cabinet and withdrew from political life, no one knows what will happen in the near future.

Not anything new on this story but I did find something worth pointing out. You do not have to be a student of psychology to understand how the controlled mass media can really influence the attitudes and opinions of a very large segment of the population. By exaggerating certain stories and ignoring others, the media can have a profound impact on how the country understands what is going on in the world...

As US Debt Tops $12 trillion, Obama Calls for Austerity

At the end of his visit to China Wednesday, President Barack Obama warned that the US economy faces the threat of a “double-dip recession” unless the government carries out fiscal austerity measures designed to slash the mounting public debt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US fiscal austerity cannot be achieved if we are escalating the war in Afghanistan.

Taxpayers are tapped out, and have little if any more to give to support the insane spending the last and current administrations have demanded to support these wars without end.

Deepening Economic Crisis: Financing the War at the Expense of Job Creation

America is in the most severe unemployment crisis since - and perhaps including - the Great Depression.

Obama is apparently escalating - not ending - the wars. And its not cheap.

According to the White House, the cost of deploying new soldiers to Afghanistan could be $1 million per soldier. Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz says that the Iraq war will cost $3-5 trillion dollars.

U.S. Starves Children in Somali War

The United States is waging a war of starvation against the people of Somalia. According to United Nations officials, Washington has interrupted the flow of desperately needed food to Somalia, on the grounds that some of it might find its way into the hands of the Shabab, the Islamists the U.S. calls "terrorists," but who are winning the war for control of southern and central Somalia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable.

What new horrors is the US going to unleash on other portions of the planet, because the people living there are sitting on resources the US claims should be its own?

Merck’s Vioxx scandal widens: Drug maker knew Vioxx was deadly for years before risk was made public

The Vioxx scandal widened this week as new research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine reveals that Vioxx maker Merck held data for three years that proved Vioxx caused an alarming increase in the risk of heart attacks and strokes. And yet Merck chose not to release that data. In fact, it took three more years of patients dying from heart attacks before Vioxx was pulled off the market, and even then, Merck insisted the drug was not dangerous.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Drug companies which engage in this kind of "research" which leads to potentially dangerous, life-threatening outcomes, should be sued out of existence.

Tony Blair ‘was told 10 days before Iraq invasion that Saddam had dismantled WMD’

Tony Blair was told Saddam Hussein may not have been able to use his chemical weapons ten days before war was declared, the Iraq Inquiry was told today.

The second day of public hearings heard the Foreign Office had no evidence Saddam was trying to supply chemical or biological weapons to terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US and UK officials knew what the truth was here, but lied us into an insane and immoral war anyway.

To the governments of the US and UK: anything that you ever say again to the people you govern will no longer be believed, even if it is the truth.

You absolutely lost whatever slight credibility you might have had when you collectively lied your countries into war.

Of course, it was never your kids getting killed or maimed for life, as has been shown very clearly by the way you have treated your Vets, desperately in need of care when they came home. They were, and continue to be, "expendable" to you.

Pakistan tells US that new Afghanistan strategy has exposed its borders to militants

Pakistan has complained to the United States that the strategy in Afghanistan is allowing militants to cross the border more easily, hampering its army’s campaign against Islamists.

Pakistani army commanders say that Nato’s recent withdrawal of troops from outposts near the border is undermining the “hammer and anvil” strategy the US has advocated since 2001, whereby militants face Nato and Pakistani troops acting on both sides of the border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Short memo to the Pakistani civilian and military leadership: the US and NATO's new policy was created with the clear understanding that the outcome would be more destabilization inside Pakistan.

And please be aware that Pakistan may well be on the US/NATO "checklist for some form of occupation to "save a nuclear-armed Pakistan from itself."

78 Percent of Stimulus Money Remained Unspent by End of Fiscal 2009 Says Federal Auditing Agency

After his election last November and until the $787-billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was passed in February, President Barack Obama repeatedly insisted that it was urgent for Congress to enact his economic “recovery” bill immediately. Yet, by the end of fiscal 2009 fully 78 percent of the federal spending authorized by that bill had not yet taken place, according to the Government Accountability Office.

In the meantime, the national unemployment rate climbed 26 percent, from 8.1 percent in February to 10.2 percent in October.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From economic to domestic to geopolitical issues, Obama's "hope and change" has morphed into "shock and awe" at the speed of light!

Climategate: 'Scientists would rather change facts than their theories'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very subtle piece of propaganda.

This story and several others like it are trying to place the focus (and blame) for the Global Warming Hoax onto the scientists caught rigging the data. And yes, those scientists who sold out scientific method and their honor for a grant are guilty and have not gotten half the kicking around they deserve.

But in our haste to toss mud at those clean white lab coats, let us remember the golden rule of science; he who has the gold makes the rules.

So, the real culprits are the politicians and power brokers and investors; the NON-scientists, who bought themselves a crisis to use to trick the people of the world out of their money and their freedom, THESE are the real villains!

And in true villain style they are looking to offer up their hired help as sacrificial lambs for the slaughter in order to save their own sorry asses.

Please do not fall for it

Yemen conflict inflaming Saudi-Iranian rivalry

in recent weeks, the conflict in northern Yemen has sharply heightened the hostility between Saudi Arabia and Iran — and that could raise tensions in the other conflicts between the two nations.

Both countries sent warships off Yemen, putting their navies in close proximity. Officials and powerful clerics in both Iran and Saudi Arabia have stepped up their rhetoric to more feverish levels. Iran's parliament speaker accused Saudi Arabia of crimes against the rebels. Saudi Arabia's most senior cleric last week railed against Iran, saying it and the rebels are in a "collaboration of sin and aggression."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yemen's government, drowning in corruption and almost collapsing to the point of "failed nation status", is supported by the US.

One has to wonder if this will be the "trigger" used as the justification to set off the US/Israeli war against Iran, with Saudi Arabia's tacit approval.

House Democrats Eye War Tax

Citing increasing concerns about the rising cost of the Afghan War, a group of House Democrats led by Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-WI) have proposed a new tax on personal income.

The tax is being pressed forward as part of the “Share the Sacrifice Act of 2010,” which Rep. Obey and others say will ensure that all Americans share the onerous burden of continuing the seemingly endless conflict in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to every single congressional representative: We the People did not, and do not, support this war at all.

We understand that the reasons for the starting of this war had and have absolutely nothing to do with US national security.

This war was profit driven, and was supposed to create two outcomes, which were:

1. The installation of pipelines to control Eurasian oil. So far, eight years on, so bad: the country is still too volatile for this to happen.

2. Control of the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely. (Thinking Americans understand that the Taliban previously all but eradicated the opium trade.

Since the US/ NATO invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, cheap drugs are flooding the market place. An accident? Hardly!!)

If any of you alleged "representatives" vote for this, I can guarantee you that you will find yourselves out of a job in Congress for the rest of your lives, come the next election!

Afghan Army Turnover Rate Threatens US War Plans

One in every four combat soldiers quit the Afghan National Army (ANA) during the year ending in September, published data by the U.S. Defense Department and the Inspector General for Reconstruction in Afghanistan reveals.

That high rate of turnover in the ANA, driven by extremely high rates of desertion, spells trouble for the strategy that President Barack Obama has reportedly decided on, which is said to include the dispatch of thousands of additional U.S. military trainers in order to rapidly increase the size of the ANA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That doesn't just spell "trouble" for Obama's strategy: it spells complete, catastrophic, disaster.

Most global banks are still unsafe, warns S&P

Standard & Poor's has given warning that nearly all of the world's big banks lack sufficient capital to cover trading and investment exposure, risking further downgrades over the next 18 months unless they move swiftly to beef up their defences.

Every single bank in Japan, the US, Germany, Spain, and Italy included in S&P's list of 45 global lenders fails the 8pc safety level under the agency's risk-adjusted capital (RAC) ratio. Most fall woefully short.

The most vulnerable are Mizuho Financial (2.0), Citigroup (2.1), UBS (2.2), Sumitomo Mitsui (3.5), Mitsubishi (4.9), Allied Irish (5.0), DZ Deutsche Zentral (5.3), Danske Bank (5.4), BBVA (5.4), Bank of Ireland (6.2), Bank of America (5.8), Deutsche Bank (6.1), Caja de Ahorros Barcelona (6.2), and UniCredit (6.3).

Former Afghan Detainees Speak Out About U.S. "Acts Of Torture"

Raqeeb, whose brother Noor was also taken but released after a much shorter period, is telling his story just as President Obama is reportedly preparing to announce an escalation of the war in Afghanistan, which polls show a majority of Americans believe is not worth fighting.

Obama is expected to announce his decision next week. Due to a scheduling conflict, he bumped his decision up on the calendar -- the week after next, he is flying to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Price.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How much more "Brave New World" can you get?

Obama will talk about the escalation of the war in Afghanistan on Tuesday, then trot off to Oslo to accept his Nobel "Peace Prize" mid December!

Israel Readying New Cutting-Edge Arms To Meet Iran Challenge

With cutting-edge anti-missile systems and two new submarines that can carry nuclear weapons, Israel is readying a new generation of armaments designed to defend itself against distant Iran as well as Tehran's proxy armies on its borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the 19 zillionth time:

1. Iran, as a signatory to the NNPT, is perfectly within its rights to develop nuclear energy for power plants.

2. All inspections by the IAEA have indicated, categorically, that there are no missing nuclear materials in Iran, nor is the nuclear material being enriched to the level necessary for a weapon; only that which is necessary for a power station.

3. Iran has not started a war in over 200 years.

4. Israel, which has nuclear weapons (as stated by Olmert to the German media, and confirmed by former US President Jimmy Carter), refuses to sign the NNPT, or have their nuclear sites inspected by the IAEA.

5. The Symington Amendment states very clearly that any country developing or owning nuclear bombs cannot receive any US aid, financial or military.

6.The US has been in violation of that Amendment for years. Israel has nuclear weapons, but maintains a public posture of "nuclear ambiguity" which the US coyly accepts in order to keep forking over money and military aid.

Any questions?!?!?!?

We Have Been Lied To On A Monumental Scale

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday's radio rant shows up on YouTube.

TRANSCRIPT provided by a reader:

The only way they can keep their little party on the Potomac going longer is to find a way to take more money from you. So, they are going to scare you with carbon dioxide and global warming and they are going to take that money from you, and you will surrender it with out argument because you have been led to believe that they're telling you the truth about global warming. It's all about belief. It's not science and its not logic and its not facts. They’re leading you with beliefs as a species, as a culture, as a civilization.

We are bribed from childhood to allow beliefs to control our behavior. Not rationality. Not logic. Not philosophy. Not education. We are taught to allow beliefs to rule our lives. Believe in the fat elf from the North Pole, you get a bicycle. Believe in the bunny, you get chocolate. Believe in the tooth fairy you get a nickel (or a dollar in these inflated times).
As children, we get the lesson over and over and over again. Forget what makes sense to you. Believe what the authorities tell you and you will get goodies, and we grow up saying, “OK, well it doesn't make sense that there's one elf at the North Pole who could visit all several billion homes on planet Earth in the space of one night, but I’m gonna shut up here because there’s a bicycle involved.“

And so, governments controlling the myths control you through your beliefs, and it's been that way going back to, “Hey, I rule by divine right. The gods sent me to earth to control your lives for you, and as long as you believe it, and as long as I can manipulate that myth of divine right then I can control all of us.”
The basic nature of the political structure of human society has not changed in 25,000 years. They're still playing the same game. It's all through hoax and myth. This Climate-Gate scandal absolutely calls into question the very legitimacy of the entire US government and the corporate media.

We have been lied to on a monumental scale. When it was Saddam's nukes, okay, maybe that was the aberration. Now we've got global warming, and all the people who signed up on that for a paycheck to lie to the world. Okay, two is a pattern. One is maybe a chance or mistake, two is a pattern. What else have we been lied to about? What are they going to lie to us about next week…to try to distract from this mess?

The CRU hack - What a difference an internet makes

Now, it is looking ever more likely that it is true, all of it.

Not least because the first big response from the hackees has been to cry, not: load of made-up bollocks, but rather: stop thief! Yes, we have been hacked, and that's outrageous. The story is that we have been hacked. (Lots of people are suddenly discovering the case for intellectual property rights.) The BBC's first version of this story goes with this angle, and with pretty much nothing else. AGW scientists (good) robbed by anti-AGW fanatics (bad). But this response has not killed the story. It has only given it legs. If there's nothing to it, why be so fussed about the hacking?

Security problems persist at a building complex in Foggy Bottom, Washington DC, following a burglary that reportedly caused the resignation of a leading political figure last night.

Watergate senior janitor Herb D Kowalski is calling for a thorough review of window latches, which he says are still “way too loose” two years after the burglary.

“I hear tell that politicians have gotten involved and that old Tricky Dick got fired,” he said.

“But that’s hardly the main issue, which is that those window latches are a disgrace. I said so when they put ‘em in, but did anyone listen?”

BBC Climate Correspondent Was Forwarded CRU Emails Five Weeks Before They Were Made Public

As we reported yesterday, in addition to showing that the scientists manipulated data to “hide the decline” in global temperatures, the thousands of leaked emails have already revealed several references to efforts by the CRU scientists to exclude skeptical warming viewpoints and evidence from important scientific publications and the media at large.

If it is confirmed that the emails were forwarded to the BBC’s Paul Hudson on October 12th, it would provide a strong indication that the source of the leak is an insider at the CRU, rather than an external hacker.

The end of blind faith in man-made climate change?

There’s no word about how many AP reporters are digging through those 1,000 emails and 3,000 hacked documents available online. They’re probably still tied up fact checking Sarah Palin’s book.

It looks like the MSM needs some help researching the big story. You can search the “alleged CRU emails” (which an editorial board member here dismissed as a “sidelight”) online.

Maybe it’ll give you an alternative activity if the football games are boring or the relatives obnoxious tomorrow. (Hint: “Holdren,” the name of the science czar, will get you some hits. The word “skeptic” will get you a lot.)

How can they make us buy coverage?

Again we see Mises's Law at work: Intervention begets intervention. Government action creates problems that politicians then use to justify more government action. Undoing the first intervention would help solve the problem, but politicians have little incentive to move in that direction.

Why I am a global warming sceptic: part 92

I am not a scientist. I have no meteorological expertise whatever. But I spent twenty years teaching philosophy and I know a logical contradiction when I see one. If greenhouse gases, and most particularly carbon dioxide, are the chief cause of global warming, then surely there should be a direct correlation between their rise (especially if it is one of record-breaking proportions) and a rise in the rate of warming. Can somebody please explain to me how an increase in these gases can exactly coincide with a fall in temperature? And while they are doing it, can they please refrain from cooking the figures (pun intended)?

"Godfather of Spam" goes to prison for four years

Alan Ralsky, the so-called "Godfather of spam" was yesterday sentenced by a federal judge in Detroit to spend the next 51 months of his life in prison for wire fraud, mail fraud, and violations of the CAN-SPAM act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This clown ripped off millions of people for millions of dollars, his stock scams probably aided the economic decline, and he only gets four years?

Utzon's son signs up for September 11 conspiracy theory

AS CONSPIRACY theories go, it is up there with the CIA assassination of president John Kennedy and the faked moon landings. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, have spawned a cottage industry devoted to questioning whether they were the work of al-Qaeda and hinting that it was ''an inside job''.

Now a lead figure in the self-described ''9/11 truth movement'', an American architect, Richard Gage, has revealed one of its most high-profile adherents to date: Jan Utzon, son of the world-famous designer of the Sydney Opera House, Joern Utzon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As you can tell from the condescending tone and the inevitable reference to the claim that the Apollo Moon landings were faked, the Australian media treats 9-11 pretty much the way the American media does; the government's feces are not odoriferous and the doubters and just kooks.

However, the signbificance of this story is that the Australian media, which for 8 years has not even mentioned that there is another opinion about 9-11, is finally having to acknowledge (and attempt to refute) that there is another point of view about all this.

Savage, Farah and Beck and the ADL's False Flag Operation

For those who attend magic shows and believe that the painted lady really is sawn in half, the ADL sideshow will be 100% believed. For those for whom appearance is seldom reality, this charade will be seen for what it is.

Certainly many genuine opponents of Orthodox Judaism and slaughterhouse Zionism have been libeled by the ADL. But as the ADL becomes more of a discredited caricature of an objective investigative agency, its service to the Cryptocracy will increasingly come from false flag operations.

Viscount Monckton on Climategate: ‘They Are Criminals’

This is what they did — these climate “scientists” on whose unsupported word the world’s classe politique proposes to set up an unelected global government this December in Copenhagen, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all formerly free markets, to tax wealthy nations and all of their financial transactions, to regulate the economic and environmental affairs of all nations, and to confiscate and extinguish all patent and intellectual property rights.

German government to give Israel warships for free

Israel, which has recently been condemned by the UN Human Rights Council because of their war crimes (1), asks Germany to build them two new warships – for free. (2)

After the German chancellor Merkel argued in front of the US congress that “whoever threatens Israel, threatens us” (3), it seems as if Israel will get what it wants. This wouldn’t, however, be anything new: At the turn of the millennium, Germany financed three submarines spending 560 Million Euros on them. In 2012, there will two additional submarines, this time German tax payers will have to pay 333 Million Euros.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should be pointed out that the German taxpayers who foot this bill had not even been born yet during WW2.

Why are the German people being punished for something they did not do and had no control over?

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s trial will convict us all

It took Hitler a while to corrupt the German courts. Hitler first had to create new courts, like President George W. Bush’s military tribunals, that did not require evidence, using in place of evidence hearsay, secret charges, and self-incrimination obtained by torture.

Every American should be concerned that the Obama administration has decided to use Mohammed’s trial to complete the corruption of the American court system. When Mohammed’s trial is over, an American Joe Stalin or Adolf Hitler will be able to convict America’s Founding Fathers on charges of treason and terrorism. No one will be safe.

SNOW COMES EARLY THIS YEAR

The global warming cultists, in a panic over the fall of their gods, are screaming that we can ignore the leaked emails and software proving fraud, because they have other copies of the pages of numbers which say exactly the same thing; that the world is getting warmer.

Well, I have a page of numbers here which says I am a billionaire, but I rather doubt its accuracy, even though it is a page of numbers and therefore (in the eyes of the cult) a holy object.

But I will see your page of numbers and raise you a whole lot of white lumpy rain signaling a very cold winter.

Wikileaks publishes 500,000 pager messages sent on 9/11

The release began at 8am GMT and will continue for 24 hours. The majority of the messages posted in the first four hours offer little illumination, with most either automatic alerts sent by computers or anodyne personal memos.

Wikileaks has not revealed how it obtained the records. The site has an impressive track record of securing and publishing confidential documents, but has been criticised for taking a reckless approach to privacy.

You might think your bank would be rolling out the red carpet for you right now.

And with investment banking and commercial lending shaky for now, banks need your retail business more than ever.

Dying for a Lie

Dying for a Lie

by Laurence M. Vance

"A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it." ~ Oscar Wilde

All Americans know that Memorial Day is a federal holiday. Most Americans know that it commemorates U. S. soldiers who died in military service for their country. Many Americans believe that U. S. soldiers died defending our freedoms. Few Americans believe that they died for a lie.

Still Doing God’s Work on Wall Street

Jail, anyone? Perhaps that’s too harsh, and at any rate premature, but is anyone ever going to be held accountable for the behind-the-scenes sweetheart deals that passed tens of billions of taxpayer dollars through the AIG shell game to the very banks that caused the financial meltdown? Or for the many other acts of double-dealing that left one out of three American homeowners owing much more than their houses were worth while the folks who swindled them were rewarded with hundreds of billions in public money?
