Jesse Ventura on 911 - A Discussion with Alex Jones

This is just one of several segments on "the Tube" but all worth checkin' out - I have to say that Ventura is one helluva' spokesman for the truth movement because he speaks in common sense terms and really gets to the heart of the matter. I no longer wonder why he isn't covered more by the mainstream media - they can't have him on because the questions he is asking are so obvious.

Turley: 'GOP challenges look like suppression'

The McCain campaign's allegations of voter fraud "look like" an attempt to suppress voting in battleground states, said a professor of George Washington University.

Professor Jonathan Turley said there is an "uncanny similarity in term of timing," drawing a comparison with voting scandals shortly before the previous two presidential elections.

"I think it is fair to say that some of these challenges do look like suppression efforts," Turley said in an interview on MSNBC. "So I think there is really grounds to be concerned here."

1,000 Gallons of Water for 1 Gallon of Ethanol - How Green is That?

Water conservation has always been a hot button for aid organizations and environmentalists, and with a world wide lack of drinking water, and third world countries getting involved in the growing bio-economy, I think it’s time to look behind the curtain of the fuel movement that calls itself “green.”

Most of us are familiar with the “food vs. fuel” controversy that’s been making news, but in addition to this, one of the things that many people are taking a good hard look at, is water sustainability in reference to this corn ethanol fuel.

Votes being stolen from Obama in Early Voting

I have to point out the pattern of voting "glitches" that have been reported so far with early voting. People in several states now have noted that when they cast a vote for Obama, it has switched to McCain. Not once have the votes flipped in the opposite direction. If there were simple error, we'd expect to see mistakes in both directions. But, just as with the errors in 2004, the only votes that have been seen flipping have gone from the Democratic presidential candidate to the Republican one.

US fell off the moral high ground

The Slaves That Time Forgot

The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The British captured Irish people and sold them as slaves, especially to the Caribbean and South America. In the first few years of American history there were more white slaves than black; most of them being Irish.

The Government's Actions Are Making the Financial Crisis Worse

* The bailouts are causing HIGHER mortgage rates for consumers

* The government's commercial paper buying spree is INCREASING the cost of borrowing

* Arbitrary interventions by the government (AIG rescued, Lehman left to fail) create chaos in the markets. Indeed, every time Paulson, Bernanke or Bush speak, the stock market tanks.

* They also undermine consumer confidence. For example, consumer confidence is now at an "all-time low", due partly to "increasing uncertainty about the government’s rescue plan".

U.S. pulls the plug on the world

The U.S. administration has prompted a huge surge in the U.S. dollar, which may help refinance its financial sector. The cost is a currency whirlwind that threatens the collapse not just of banks and companies but entire countries.

In the past week the financial crisis, which began in banking and spread to stocks, has careered into the currency markets. The U.S. actively decided back in September 2008 to shut down the investment banks that lend to the biggest professional investors. This has caused those investors to sell anything and everything and to settle their trades.

One Last Bush Doctrine

Belittled domestically, President Bush is flexing his last working muscle: His control over the nation's military. And in so doing, he is adding one last addendum to the ever-changing Bush Doctrine, establishing yet another de facto U.S. policy on his way out the door, and leaving his successor with yet another controversial precedent to wrestle with.

Barack Obama earthquake coming, says veteran pollster

The Barack Obama earthquake is on its way. A second wave of electoral landslide has never followed the first in US politics, but after the 2006 Republican meltdown history will be made next week. Race will not be an issue. McCain over-learnt the lessons of Hillary Clinton's defeat to Obama. McCain should now be involved in a "Bob Dole" strategy because all he looks like at the moment is an angry old man.

True Vote Summarizes Problems in U.S. Election Thus Far

- Voter deception. In Florida Democratic voters received calls falsely telling them they could call in their vote and avoid lines. In Philadelphia, fliers warn that people with outstanding tickets, child support payments and warrants will be arrested when they vote. In Hampton, Virginia they tell Democrats to vote on Wednesday, Republicans on Tuesday. In Texas, people are told if they want to vote for all the Democrats and make sure they vote for Obama, that after they select Democrat they should then select Obama – in fact, that erases the Obama vote.

US considering talks with Taliban: report

The United States is considering taking part in talks with elements of the Taliban in a sharp change in tactics in Afghanistan, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday citing unnamed officials.

The report said the new approach was contained in a draft recommendation in a classified White House assessment of US strategy in Afghanistan. Talks would be led by the Afghan government, “but with the active participation of the US,” it said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So finally, after 7 years of blood and money spent on the badly mangled occupation of Afghanistan, someone gets something of a clue as to what really needs to happen here?

One has to wonder if there were any true adults in the room when the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was (allegedly) planned.

And how horrendously wrong this has gone can be ascribed to three factors: magical thinking, a complete ignorance of the history and culture of the region, and a complete repudiation of the US's own military protocol, indicating that it would take 400,000 soldiers to manage this occupation successfully.

Biden Slammed During Florida Interview, Same Anchor Gives McCain Softballs

Biden asked her if his interview was a "joke" and wondered aloud who was writing her questions. Conservative writers, like Michelle Malkin, are trying to use Biden's negative reaction to biased questions as proof that he's even more erratic than John McCain. It's a huge stretch. Not only has John McCain increasingly accused the entire media establishment of being in the tank for Obama after years of calling the press his "base," but on Thursday he showed clear erratic behavior by snapping at a reporter over an immigration question:

News Orgs Investigate Possibly Fatal McCain '64 Car Crash

Vanity Fair magazine and the National Security News Service claim to have knowledge "developed from first-hand sources" of a car crash that involved then-Lt. McCain at the main gate of a Virginia naval base in 1964, according to legal filings. The incident has been largely, if not entirely, kept from the public. And in documents suing the Navy to release pertinent information, lawyers for the NS News Service allege that a cover-up may be at play.

Gaza hospitals suffering from lack of medicine

Last week, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said virtually no medical supplies were reaching the Gaza Strip, putting the lives of several hundred seriously ill patients at risk.

It blamed a "standstill in cooperation" between Palestinian authorities in the West Bank, where President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction holds sway, and Hamas for imports of medical supplies having slowed to a "trickle".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palestinians are dying due to both the internecine squabbles between Hamas and Fatah, and Israel's combined siege of Gaza and denial of travel for health reasons.

That Gazans are being left to die because of lack of access to medicines or are unable to leave Gaza for desperately needed medical treatment, borders on the criminal.

Spending the Economy into Oblivion.. Ron Paul

With news this week that Congress is poised to consider a new stimulus package, I am forced to again ask a question that seems silly in Washington: How will we pay for this?

While a few Members of Congress have raised the issue, it certainly was not the primary concern of the House Budget Committee when they interviewed Ben Bernanke on Monday. And, when they did direct this question to the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, his answer was the standard rhetoric about how Congress needed to make tough choices. Needless to say, not many specifics were discussed.

Interventionism, Not Muslims, Is the Problem

Opinion: Livni's Coalition Collapse Bad News for Mid-East Peace

Livni's inability to form the coalition now threatens the peace process even more. At present, polls are forecasting an election victory not for Livni but for “Likud” party boss Benjamin Netanyahu. One doesn't need to reread the history books to know that during Netanyahu's last term of office from 1996 to 1999, the Oslo agreement received its mortal blow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A real worst-case scenario: Netanyahu wins in Israel, and McCain "wins" (read: steals) the election in the US.

If you've loved Bush's wars without end, you're really going to love what McCain and Netanyahu will most probably do.

US seeks Gulf money to get over financial crisis

A senior US official on Tuesday made a strong pitch for Gulf Arab investment and promised them better treatment than meted out to Dubai port operator DP World two years ago as the United States tries to overcome turmoil in its financial system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rulers of the Gulf states must be shaking their heads collectively, and wondering just what the US thinks it is doing, coming hat in hand to Dubai to get these leaders to agree to invest in the US market.

After having occupied Iraq and Afghanistan (badly), and shooting up places like Pakistan and now Syria, the US is doing a remarkable job of looking like an international bully which needs a real intervention to save it from yet another potential round of military misadventures.

Unless Kimmitt understands and acknowledges this going in, his hopes for Gulf investment in the US are dead on arrival.

Additionally, Islamic banks are less exposed to the problems in the US markets because of how they lend money, which is on a fixed fee, and not for interest per se.

But if there is any silver lining on the bad US and international financial news, it is that the economic downturn may mean a more rapid pullout in Iraq, and a quicker coming to terms with the Taliban in Afghanistan, because there is no money left with which to fight these wars.

US Faces International Condemnation in Wake of Syria Strike

Unnamed US officials said the attack had targeted and killed a “smuggler of foreign fighters into Iraq” and said they didn’t kill any of the women and children found at the attacked site. US officials say the attack is justified under an “expansive definition of self-defense” similar to the argument made by Israel when it attacked a site in Syria last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, if the US raid inside Syria DIDN'T kill those women and children, would someone kindly tell me precisely how they died?!?

And to describe this action in any way, shape or form as having been justified under ".....an 'expansive definition of self-defense'" just boggles the mind.

This was not "self-defense"; it was sheer, naked aggression; there's no other logical way to describe it.

PM Putin suggests Russia, China ditch dollar in trade deals

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin proposed on Tuesday that Russia and China gradually switch over to national currency payments in bilateral trade, expected to total $50 billion in 2008.

"We should consider improving the payment system for bilateral trade, including by gradually adopting a broader use of national currencies," Putin told a bilateral economic forum.

He admitted the task would be tough, but said it was necessary amid the current problems with the dollar-based global economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering the current state of the US dollar (backed by nothing more than a smile from the officials at the Federal Reserve), who can blame Putin for making such a suggestion?

Solomon's real mine? 3,000 years on, archaeologists uncover fabled site in desert

In a discovery straight out of an Indiana Jones movie, archaeologists believe they have uncovered one of the lost mines of King Solomon.

The vast copper mine lies in an arid valley in modern-day Jordan and was created in the 10th century BC - around the time Solomon is believed to have ruled over the ancient Hebrews.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a bit of a leap here! What they have is a mine. The existence of the mine does not prove anything at all about Solomon, or ancient Judea. Even this article admits that the archaeologists "believe" this is one of Solomon's mines.

Pointedly, most scientists date the site to long after the time of Solomon. From Dr. Levy's comments, it is obvious that he has an agenda to use the site to prove the Old Testament narrative, rather than to simply understand the site itself.
