FLASHBACK - The FBI Allowed the 1993 WTC Bombing to Happen

After the bombing, he resumed his undercover work. In an undated transcript of a conversation from that period, Mr. Salem recounts a talk he had had earlier with an agent about an unnamed F.B.I. supervisor who, he said, "came and messed it up."

"He requested to meet me in the hotel," Mr. Salem says of the supervisor.

"He requested to make me to testify, and if he didn't push for that, we'll be going building the bomb with a phony powder, and grabbing the people who was involved in it. But since you, we didn't do that."

The transcript quotes Mr. Salem as saying that he wanted to complain to F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington about the Bureau's failure to stop the bombing, but was dissuaded by an agent identified as John Anticev.

Mr. Salem said Mr. Anticev had told him,

FBI thwarts terrorist bombing attempt at Portland holiday tree lighting, authorities say

A Corvallis man, thinking he was going to ignite a bomb, drove a van to the corner of the square at Southwest Yamhill Street and Sixth Avenue and attempted to detonate it.

However, the supposed explosive was a dummy that FBI operatives supplied to him, according to an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint signed Friday night by U.S. Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, unable to find any real terrorists, the FBI keep setting up these patsies to take a fall.

The FBI are not discovering terrorists, just incredible dumb and gullible losers!

A Majority Of Americans Believe The US Government No Longer Operates Within The Constitution

A rather indicative poll released by Rasmussen earlier this week finds that a majority of Americans (44%) now believe that the government operates outside the confines of the Constitution, compared to just 39% who believe government does not take liberties with the precepts laid out by the founding fathers (and 17% were busy watching dancing with the stars to have an opinion either way). Some other unflattering findings on US democracy: "Earlier surveys have shown that just one-in-five voters believe that the government today has the consent of the governed. Forty-eight percent (48%) see the government as a threat to individual rights.

CAN ISRAEL DEFEAT HEZBOLLAH IN THE COMING WAR? – Part 2: By DR. FRANKLIN LAMB

During the 33 day July 2006 War, Israeli forces refused orders to advance against Hezbollah fighters, happily opting for 14 day jail sentences for failure to obey orders.

Hezbollah, has smashed the myth of Israel’s invincibility, broken the barrier of fear, increased the popular demand for rORDE Ristance, exposed the fake peace process and rejected appeasement, acquiescence and surrender. Hezbollah forces taught the world that Arabs can and will liberate Palestine because they possess the qualities and acumen to do it. The kings and the presidents in the region, who for six decades chose their thrones over Jerusalem quake as does Israel.

Oregon: FBI Thwarts Own Car Bomb

Will Americans recoil in yet more contrived fear?

Tony Cartalucci, Contributing Writer -- Activist Post

The United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) claims to have thwarted their own car bomb Friday, November 26, 2010 at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon's Pioneer Courthouse Square.

A 19 year old man, Mr. Mohamed Osman Mohamud, was in contact with undercover FBI agents since June of 2010. FBI agents claim they were acting as an accomplice of a supposed Pakistani terrorist that Mr. Mohamud had been in contact with as early as 2008. Unlike the supposed Pakistani terrorist Mr. Mohamud was in contact with, the FBI actually supplied him with a bomb . . .

TSA Administrative Directive: Opt-Outters To Be Considered “Domestic Extremists”

If the information recently acquired by Doug Hagmann of Northeast Intelligence Network is accurate, then something really big is happening in America right now - and it’s most certainly not a step towards individual liberty.

According to Mr. Hagmann, he was contacted by a source within the DHS who provided an alarming memo detailing a new administrative directive agreed upon by DHS chief Janet Napolitano and the head of TSA John Pistole. The memo, according to Doug Hagmann, “officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as ‘domestic extremists’.”

Oregon Feds' car-bombing sting: Somali-born teen arrested

Feds: Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Ore.
By WILLIAM McCALL – 30 mins ago
PORTLAND, Ore. – Federal prosecutors say a Somali-born teenager plotted to carry out a car bomb attack at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in downtown Portland on Friday but the bomb turned out to be a dud supplied by undercover agents as part of a sting.
Mohamed Osman Mohamud was arrested at about 5:45 p.m. just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would blow up a van laden with explosives but instead brought federal agents and Portland police swooping in to take him into custody.
Federal court documents show the sting operation began in June after an undercover agent learned that Mohamud had been in contact with an "unindicted associate" in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier region.

"Yonhap news agency quoted an unnamed South Korean military source as saying: "The intensity of the exercise will be greater than had been planned. Participating forces will carry out firing and bombing drills."
Pyongyang claims it acted in retaliation Tuesday to a South Korean firing drill in what it regards as its own waters and has warned that the new war games mean the peninsula "is inching closer to the brink of war"."

GORDON DUFF: IRAN-KOREA NUCLEAR LIES, ORDERS FROM TEL AVIV

North Korea does not have the technology to create, mold or machine Plutonium, almost no one has. Breeder reactors create Plutonium but it is impossible to machine or mold without using special alloys which, of course, are traceable during any nuclear explosion. North Korea has had two “nuclear” explosions and both have been traced.

Not one ounce of “North Korean” material was ever involved.

The 2006 explosion did have a nuclear signature, a North Korean explosion but an American nuclear signature. That there wasn’t something worse, an implosion based explosion or, worse, a thermonuclear device demonstrates a partially successful CIA operation with Pakistan’s A.Q. Khan and Valerie Plane to thank, heroes the Bush administration tried to hound to death. Why?

His own popularity, at a real 8%, was the reason, that and the economic collapse that he was trying to push back until he left office.

We are very interested in ejecting those people from government service and, where possible, prosecution of those individuals for their roles in these attacks.

FedEx searches for missing radioactive equipment (Here Comes the next issue as the Dow Dives)

– Fri Nov 26, 10:07 am ET
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – FedEx is searching for radioactive rods used for medical equipment that went missing during shipment between North Dakota and Tennessee.
Memphis-based FedEx spokeswoman Sandra Munoz said Friday the rods are used for quality control purposes for CT scans. She says the rods were likely misplaced and there's no indication the material was stolen.
She says the shipment was from Fargo, N.D., to Knoxville, Tenn., this week and the rods are in a metal cylinder that is about 10 inches tall and weighs about 20 pounds.
Munoz says as long as no one tries to open the metal container, the rods do not pose a danger.

Tom Delay Convicted of Money Laundering, A Harbinger of Things to Come?

Just when you thought there was no justice left in the world (or hardly any) a Texas jury on Wednesday found ex-House Majority Leader Tom Delay guilty of money laundering.

It took 19 hours but the panel of six men and six women found Delay guilty of conspiring with two associates for going around state law that bars corporate contributions to political campaigns. He faces 5 to 99 years in prison though incredibly the judge could choose probation. In any event Delay intends to appeal his conviction.

Hopefully Delay's conviction will open the door to more prosecutions of other hack politicians and their corporate and special interest backers that have so completely corrupted the political process in their favor.

Big victory against Monsanto's rBGH treatment for dairy cows.

Now, here's the BIG news. The court challenged the FDA's finding that there is "no measurable compositional difference" between milk from rbGH-treated cows and milk from untreated cows. According to those who have worked on this issue for nearly two decades now (maybe more), the FDA's claim that there was no compositional difference between milk from rbGH-treated and untreated cows was THE MAJOR roadblock to any good regulation. And the court finally struck it down, citing three reasons why the milk differs: 1. Increased levels of the hormone IGF-1, 2. A period of milk with lower nutritional quality during each lactation, and 3. Increased somatic cell counts (i.e. more pus in the milk).

Below, you will find the exact language of the court's ruling, as well as testimony submitted to the FDA's Veterinary Medicine Advisory Committee all the way back in 1993 by Michael Hansen, Senior Scientist at Consumers' Union. Amazing how it only took 17 years to get the truth legally recognized.

Haiti cholera epidemic will affect hundreds of thousands, says UN official

The cholera epidemic in Haiti is spreading faster than predicted and is likely to affect hundreds of thousands of people, according to a senior United Nations official.

Since it broke out in mid-October, the waterborne disease has killed at least 1,344 people as it spread through crowded housing and the camps and makeshift shelters in which almost a million people are still living after the earthquake in January.

Nigel Fisher, the UN humanitarian co-ordinator in Haiti, said the epidemic had now spread to all 10 of the country's provinces and could last up to a year. He said the real death toll could be closer to 2,000, because there was little reliable data from remote areas.

A senator from Oregon has threatened to block a copyright enforcement bill that would give U.S. law enforcement the right to shut down Web sites without trial or defense if it finds the central reason for the site is to distribute copyrighted information illegally.

Ron Wyden, (D-Ore.) calls the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act, or COICA bill the "wrong medicine" for copyright infringement, partially because it includes enforcement measures like a sledge hammer, when ice tongs are more appropriate.

The world experienced a major food crisis in 2008 that led to civil and political unrest from Bangladesh to Haiti and added millions more to those suffering from malnutrition. Though prices have dropped somewhat, some analysts say the crisis never totally ended. With prices rising dramatically in 2010, the world could be on the brink of a new crisis.

HAS AIPAC MADE THE FBI THE “FBE,” FEDERAL BUREAU OF ESPIONAGE?

Are we reading this correctly? Not only is Rosen claiming that AIPAC, the organization every American politician, every president bows to on a daily basis, spies against the United States, also on a daily basis, but that the FBI seems to be, well, a part of it?

Funny thing here, OK, not really funny, but what we don’t see asked is WHAT INFORMATION is being stolen? America learned, long ago with the infamous Jonathan Pollard case, that secrets going to Israel end up in the hands of America’s enemies. America’s most vital Cold War defense information, nuclear technology, air defense systems, classified weapons and even NATO defense plans in case of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, all went to Russia as part of an arrangement between the Soviets and Israel. Pollard is doing life in prison for this.

Now we find the same thing is going on but the new FBI doesn’t arrest Israeli agents like it used to. Why is that?

UCSF professors raise safety concerns about backscatter x-ray scanners.

Unlike a medical X-ray, the TSA X-ray machines are a sci-fi fan's dream: they are lower-energy beams that can only penetrate clothing and the topmost layers of skin. This provides TSA agents with a view that would expose any explosives concealed by clothing. But according to the UCSF professors, the low-energy rays do a "Compton scatter" off tissue layers just under the skin, rather than the bone, possibly exposing some vital areas and leaving the tissues at risk of mutation.

When an X-ray Compton scatters, it doesn't shift an electron to a higher energy level; instead, it hits the electron hard enough to dislodge it from its atom. The authors note that this process is "likely breaking bonds," which could cause mutations in cells and raise the risk of cancer.

Because the X-rays only make it just under the skin's surface, the total volume of tissue responsible for absorbing the radiation is fairly small. The professors point out that many body parts that are particularly susceptible to cancer are just under the surface, such as breast tissue and testicles. They are also concerned with those over 65, as well as children, being exposed to the X-rays.

RICHARD FALK : COMMENTS ON THE PEACE PROCESS

An almost condition of the negotiations is that whatever is agreed upon is final so far as Palestinian any future demands are concerned. This reinforces the importance of assessing the adequacy of the process and of Palestinian representation. It also shows how impossible it seems to be that anything will emerge that can be reconciled with even a minimal construction of Palestinian rights or expectations.

There are three severe shortcomings of the peace process as now constituted:

Countrywide Documentation Disaster to Explode at Bank of America?

Ash Bennington

PLAME/EDMONDS/AIPACGATE UPDATE: Rosen Threatens to Open Pandora's Box

About a year ago, I had reached the acceptance stage of my grief over the fact that justice would not be served and the perpetrators behind the outing of Valerie Plame, the corruption that Sibel Edmonds witnessed before the FBI fired her and the espionage at AIPAC would never pay for their crimes. The cover-up of these crimes by both the justice system and the mainstream media (MSM) put me in a depression that for six months made writing a blog seem like a waste of time. But by November of 2009, I had moved on to documenting other aspects of deep politics in the midst of a global scenario of permanently declining resources. The prospect of finding justice in a labyrinthian conspiracy I had spent the past five years documenting was not even worth entertaining anymore.

One year later, that possibility is still facing astronomical odds. But there is a faint glimmer of hope; the slightest shred of a chance. This is why:

Tester Amendment to food ‘safety’ bill puts lipstick on a pig

The voice of controlled opposition wants Americans to believe that the Tester Amendment to S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, elevates the bill to something we should adopt. The Tester Amendment puts a bandaid on a head wound. It does not stop the most lethal agency in American history from seizing control of the food supply from farm to fork.

Even though Big Ag now opposes S 510, we should continue to oppose the bill, as it amounts to federal assault on food freedom . . .

House Democrats call for release of one of the most notorious spies in Israel’s history

A “relentless” campaign by David Nyer, a Jewish Orthodox activist from Monsey, New York, has succeeded in winning significant support from House Democrats who are now calling on President Obama to release Jonathan Pollard.
Pollard is a former civilian intelligence analyst who was convicted of spying for Israel and through a plea bargain received a life sentence in 1987. He is believed to have caused incalculable damage to US national security.
Nyer’s campaign “struck gold” when he succeeded in winning the support of Rep. Barney Frank. The JTA reported:

If proven, Countrywide’s mortgage fraud could threaten Bank of America

Problems with mortgage documents Bank of American acquired when it purchased the mortgage provider Countrywide Financial in 2008 could cost the bank billions, if a testimony in a New Jersey foreclosure case proves accurate.

During the foreclosure trial, an operational team leader for Bank of America, Linda DiMartini, said it was "customary for Countrywide to maintain possession of the original note and related documents."

If her testimony is proven, Countrywide may have not properly transferred the necessary mortgage documents when it sold loans to other banks who then used the loans to create residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is the oversubscribing these RMBS documents which may ultimately destroy the banks.

Why should George W. Bush have been “angry” to learn in late 2007 of the unanimous judgment of all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies that Iran had stopped working on a nuclear weapon four years earlier?

Seems to me he might have said “Hot Dog!” rather than curse under his breath.

Nowhere in his memoir, Decision Points, is Bush’s bizarre relationship to truth so manifest as when he describes his dismay at learning that the intelligence community had redeemed itself for its lies about Iraq by preparing an honest Estimate that stuck a rod in the wheels of the juggernaut rolling toward war with Iran.

The government should be shaken to its roots, network after network should be picking up the story and something, anything, should be in the newspapers.

Instead, everyone, yes, everyone in the media, everyone in government, is pretending it didn’t happen, just hoping it will go away. The reason they are reacting this way is simple, if even part of 9/11 gets out, part of the easily proven truth, there can’t be enough unexpected “heart attacks’ and plane crashes to keep everything from crashing in.

"So this is Obama's problem, he is an articulate and clever man, but not a courageous one. Such men do not usually win against the wolves. They do not achieve real answers to our problems. They only produce feeble, short-lived consensus. That is a road that can only circle back upon itself."

It’s as if Mr. Chertoff had been on a mission—

"No exposure to X-ray is considered beneficial. We know X-rays are hazardous, but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner," he said.

The Haskells responded by saying, Show us the tape. At that point, “Federal agents” spoke to ABC’s Brian Ross and said, Well, maybe there was a sharp dressed man and here’s what he did.

...

We know that federal law enforcement quietly allowed the Haskell’s story to stand through the statement to Brian Ross. Since key elements of the story have not been formally investigated, we don’t know if Abdulmutallab went through normal check-in or if, as witnessed and indicated, he somehow bypassed normal security requirements.

AYMAN QUADER: THE HERO FROM MY PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE

The Palestinian child is directly affected by the scenes of incursion, blood and war. The child is not given the basic childhood rights. It is even hard for her/him to find a space for fun, and also to get her/him physiological needs satisfied. The child retains memories of all means of death that his/her family passed through during the time of instability and warfare caused by the Israeli regular militant activities in his/her area.

IRAN IS NOT THE ARABS’ ENEMY, ISRAEL IS

Arab states in the Gulf region and beyond have every right to defend their interests, but they have no right to pursue hostile policies against the Iranian republic just to appease Washington and obtain a certificate of good conduct from international Zionism. In the final analysis, Israel, that cancerous entity which seeks to destroy Islam in coordination and in collusion with western imperialistic forces, is our enemy. It has always been, and it will always be.

ANTHONY LAWSON : FRIENDS OF ISRAEL — ENEMIES INSIDE THE GATES [video]

Recently, political pressure has been brought to bear against a trades unionist KEVIN BRACKEN, for attempting to express his views about the events of 9/11, on Australia’s publicly funded broadcaster, the ABC. This video redresses the balance, and makes it clear that Australia’s prime minister is either ignorant, beyond belief, or she is putting the interests of nuclear, Apartheid Israel ahead of Australia’s.

Obama Forces 700,000 Seniors Out Of Med Coverage

...Last year we heard it over and over, I'm talking of course about President Obama's promise that if you like your plan you can keep it. Well forget it. Today it was discovered that another 700,000 Seniors will have to change plans, because health insurers are shutting down certain types of plans because of legislative changes and looming cuts to federal funding. That is on top of the announcement in August that three million seniors would have to get new providers...

There are / (were) "Sky Lobbies" on 44 and on 78.So to go above those floors, you took an express elevator to theappropriate sky lobby and then transferred to a local elevator. The elevator machinery was located on the floors above the sky lobbies; only a very few shafts continued all the way up. Anyway, apparently she was in the lobby, the elevator shaftway doors opened and a fireball hit her with full force.

Evidence for Informed Trading on the Attacks of September 11

Just after September 11th 2001, many governments began investigations into possible insider trading related to the terrorist attacks of that day. Such investigations were initiated by the governments of Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Monte Carlo, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United States, and others. Although the investigators were clearly concerned about insider trading, and considerable evidence did exist, none of the investigations resulted in a single indictment. That’s because the people identified as having been involved in the suspicious trades were seen as unlikely to have been associated with those alleged to have committed the 9/11 crimes.

This is an example of the circular logic often used by those who created the official explanations for 9/11. The reasoning goes like this: if we assume that we know who the perpetrators were (i.e. the popular version of “al Qaeda”) and those who were involved in the trades did not appear to be connected to those assumed perpetrators, then insider trading did not occur.

STILL WAITING FOR JUSTICE- 25 YEARS SINCE ALEX ODEH’S MURDER

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) case into Alex Odeh’s murder remains open, with an up to a $1 million reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. However, no arrest has yet been made in spite of the fact that press reports have stated over the years that the FBI identified members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) as suspects. None of the identified JDL individuals has ever been charged or prosecuted in connection with the murder, and some have fled to Israel.

Steve Scheetz
COTO Report

Since September 11, 2001, our government has been operating with a demand for the understanding of the people. We, as part of this demand, are to allow for certain limitations of our liberty in order to gain a certain level of security. But, given the questionable nature of what are likely exaggerated threats, coupled with Congressional enrichment from these expensive security technologies, the U.S. public is losing both liberty and security, as well as money.

America In Decline: A Society In Denial

During the 1950s and 1960s, the United States was the richest and most envied country in the world. It was also unrivaled as the world's manufacturing powerhouse. Americans proudly regarded their country is a model, and many people around the world agreed.

Today, the US is still the world's largest economy and pre-eminent military power, and it's still a country of great resources and wealth. But things have changed tremendously over the past half century.

What we are witnessing in the world today is not anti-Semitism re-directed but a gathering, global manifestation of anti-Israelism. This is happening because of the Zionist (not Jewish) state’s arrogance of power, including its resort from time to time to state terrorism; its contempt for, and defiance of, international law and a host of UN Security Council resolutions; and its insufferable self-righteousness.

Obama Administration Denies Request for Fort Hood Report That Could Aid Suspect

A key intelligence report that could aid accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan's defense is being withheld by the Obama administration, according to a letter obtained by Fox News as part of its ongoing investigation of a radical American cleric.

Intelligence officials do not deny that the report contains information about the cleric, Anwar Al-Awlaki, who is the first American on the CIA’s kill or capture list.

Officials at the New York state employees' pension fund have pleaded guilty to funnelling money to managers who agreed to pay kickbacks, and Mr Rattner is accused of funding the distribution of a low-budget movie made by the brothers of the fund's chief investment officer.

According to yesterday's lawsuits, he also paid $1m in "sham fees" to a placement agent working on behalf of the fund and the New York state comptroller, Alan Hevesi, as well as contributing to Mr Hevesi's re-election campaign. In return, Quadrangle, Mr Rattner's former fund, was given a $150m investment from the pension fund.

ALAN HART: NETANYAHU AND THE “DEMONIZATION” OF ISRAEL

Mr. Netanyahu, you and yours are responsible for the “demonization” of Israel -- By Alan Hart/ STAFF WRITTER

When Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America recently, he was relaxed, charming and at his deluded best. For Jewish audiences which don’t want to know the truth of history, there’s nobody who can deliver Zionism’s propaganda lines and lies more effectively than him. (Though he didn’t say so, he was obviously delighted that President Obama had taken a hammering in the mid-term elections).

I could take issue with Netanyahu on many of his mad assertions but on this occasion I will settle for challenging just one of them.

How the Rothschild Banksters Destroyed the United States

Satanic Psychopaths will be Satanic Psychopaths. It isn't about greed as much as it is about power. The United States has been under the Rothschild's thumb since its inception. The Bank of England took a minority interest in the first two "Banks of the United States". After a brief battle with Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln, they destroyed any hope of a free currency and established the Federal Reserve Bank and began to charge us for the privilege of using their worthless paper as our National currency.

Woodrow Wilson probably felt a twinge of remorse and ended up being "incapacitated" for the remainder of his term while his wife took over his duties as President. Who knows if he planned on turning over a new leaf. Enemies of "The Crown" often end up dead or incapacitated.

Sarkozy urged to testify to inquiry into Pakistan arms sale kickbacks

L'affaire Karachi is the most explosive corruption investigation in recent French history and the biggest scandal to personally threaten Sarkozy.

The potent saga of suspect submarine sales and illegal kickbacks centres around a bomb attack in Karachi in 2002, when 15 people, including 11 French engineers, were killed in what judges believe was a retaliation attack over unpaid government bribes.

The families of the French victims urged Sarkozy to testify to investigating magistrates about what he knows. "At the top of the French state there is a fear of this dossier advancing because it implicates Nicolas Sarkozy and those close to him," said Olivier Morice, the families' lawyer.

US taxpayers’ money spent on promoting democracy abroad

Selling democracy does not come cheap, as the US is spending billions of taxpayers’ dollars to finance foreign politicians and parties which fall on its side of the fence.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has spent US$9 billion on promoting Washington’s democracy initiatives.

This is a new model for influencing target countries’ internal politics in favor of US interests through financing, training, support and guidance to pro-US forces in foreign countries.

Another democracy promoter – the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) – received $132 million during 2009, and nearly all of it from US government agencies.

But those are just the tip of the iceberg. There is an entire network of organizations involved in the democracy promotion business.

President Obama Would Rather Kill Palestinians than Feed American Children

By Mohamed Khodr —My Catbird Seat

President Obama, your outrageous acceptance of Israel’s extortion of $3 Billion worth of F-35 fighter planes along with other security and political guarantees for the mere acceptance of a 90 day “freeze” of settlements in the West Bank, which excludes East Jerusalem, is a slap to the honor and dignity of this nation, the sole superpower. That a rogue illegitimate small war crime of a nation can bring this superpower to its knees is proof that our leaders, government, institutions, media, and academia can be bought, sold, and intimidated by a few hundred thousand rich and powerful American Jews.

Pentagon blows up thousands of homes in Afghanistan Repeating the horrors of the Vietnam War

The Pentagon’s murderous rampage and terror campaign 40 years ago against South Vietnamese villages, in areas that were considered sympathetic to the resistance forces, used much of the same kind of explanation. In fact, the New York Times in a throw back to Vietnam quotes the Arghandab District Governor, who is working with the occupation forces: “We had to destroy them to make them safe.”

That this tactic is part of a high-tech terror campaign against Afghan villages and the people who inhabit them is evident even by the descriptions and accounts of western media outlets that are supporting the war.

TSA Agents Absolutely Hate New Pat Downs, Find Them Disgusting And Morale Breaking

One of the common themes that people keep mentioning in talking about the new TSA pat down procedures is that those involved must "enjoy" the groping they're giving people. But, of course, most TSA agents are normal every day people who don't actually want to grope random people. Chris Tolles points us to a post from BoardingArea.com, who reached out to some TSA agents and found that many TSA agents hate the new rules and find it to be sapping morale to have to grope passengers. Some of it appears to be the verbal abuse they're getting from travelers, but some of it is just the fact that they have to keep touching people they'd rather not touch in that way:

"It is not comfortable to come to work knowing full well that my hands will be feeling another man’s private parts, their butt, their inner thigh. Even worse is having to try and feel inside the flab rolls of obese passengers and we seem to get a lot of obese passengers!"

MSNBC: "Obama Agenda: 81% favor body scanners" ?! A Rather Spirited Analysis

BUSTED: Caught you red-handed, MSNBC, angling for that lucrative Fox demographic. Pandering to the increasingly common "Obama-nation" element, the crypto-racist, cerebrally-challenged, slogan-driven Brown Shirts concerned above all with the Security of the Homeland, and easily manipulable by this Fourth iteration of the Reich. You know, the people whose respect and favor is most quickly won by insulting their intelligence, pandering to their fears, Like a bad political ad. Patent lies that sound logical held together with emotional language and punctuated with the occasional ad hominem snarky quip: "BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. ----- Wrong on safety ----- Wrong on security ----- WRONG FOR AMERICA." No, dear MSNBC: you are in error.  I am not a part of your "viewing audience."

I'm here because I read.

The fastest way to lose me, to lose the best of us, is to pander to the worst of us. You've already lost most of the intelligent, discerning, cultured, educated people.... You will eventually lose what good-ol'-boys you traded them for. Once they catch onto what the Elite have in store for them. Just like the Brown Shirts before them. Under the bus.

Propaganda Alert: AP reports Small Farms are Exempt from Food Safety Bill

A day after the Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510) passed cloture with a vote of 74-25, the Associated Press put out some world-class propaganda claiming that "Some small farms would be exempt from government efforts to prevent foodborne illness under a Senate agreement on food safety legislation." The article claims a last-minute deal was struck to allow small farms to "avoid expensive food safety plans

That all sounds well and good, but it only exempts them from having to submit food safety plans, not from inspections that they get billed for, licensing requirements with expensive quality controls, product confiscation without cause or recourse, and even armed raids. We've already seen all of these ugly faces of food fascism unfold in America. Private organic co-ops have been raided by armed guards, lemonade stands fined and closed down, Amish Dairies raided, and a family farm had 50,000 pounds of cheese confiscated.

NY lawyer gets jail in Dead Sea Scrolls case

Some scholars, including New York University Judaic studies chairman Lawrence Schiffman, say the texts were assembled by a sect known as the Essenes. Others — including Norman Golb, a University of Chicago historian and Golb's father — believe the writings were the work of a range of Jewish groups and communities.

Schiffman went to authorities after some of his students and colleagues received e-mails from an address that used his name. The e-mails appeared to have him admitting that he plagiarized Norman Golb's work and asking the recipients to keep quiet about it. Schiffman denies copying the historian's work.
