The Pentagon Attack: What the Physical Evidence Shows

 

 

You are a Terrorist

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com December 21, 2010

 

While the establishment constantly invokes the contrived terror threat as justification for the announcement that your every activity is being sent to federal fusion centers, those same fusion centers have been busy defining peaceful assembly, non-violent protest and criticism of the government as domestic terrorism. According to the government’s own definition of what constitutes terrorist activity – you are a terrorist.  FULL ARTICLE WITH VIDEO=>

 

FCC Gives Government Power to Regulate Web Traffic

By Amy Schatz, Wall Street Journal, December 21, 2010

 

Federal telecommunications regulators approved new rules Tuesday that would for the first time give the federal government formal authority to regulate Internet traffic, although how much or for how long remained unclear.  A divided Federal Communications Commission approved a proposal by Chairman Julius Genachowski to give the FCC power to prevent broadband providers from selectively blocking web traffic.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  There is a serious problem here. A federal court ruled on April 6, 2010 that the FCC has neither legal authority nor power to regulate Internet neutrality.  So by what authority may the FCC give the federal government formal authority to regulate Internet traffic?

 

Wikileaks: a Big Dangerous US Government Con Job

By F. William Engdahl, Voltairenet.com, December 10, 2010

 

What is emerging from all the sound and Wikileaks fury in Washington is that the entire scandal is serving to advance a long-standing Obama and Bush agenda of policing the until-now free Internet. Already the US Government has shut the Wikileaks server in the United States though no identifiable US law has been broken.

 

The story on the surface makes for a script for a new Oliver Stone Hollywood thriller. However, a closer look at the details of what has so far been carefully leaked by the most ultra-establishment of international media such as the New York Times reveals a clear agenda. That agenda coincidentally serves to buttress the agenda of US geopolitics around the world from Iran to North Korea. The Wikileaks is a big and dangerous US intelligence Con Job which will likely be used to police the Internet.  FULL ARTICLE=>

UN Mulls Internet Regulation Operations

By John Hilvert, ITNews.com.au, December 17, 2010

 

The United Nations is considering whether to set up an inter-governmental working group to harmonize global efforts by policy makers to regulate the internet.  Establishment of such a group has the backing of several countries, spearheaded by Brazil.

 

At a meeting in New York on Wednesday, representatives from Brazil called for an international body made up of Governmental representatives that would attempt to create global standards for policing the internet – specifically in reaction to challenges such as WikiLeaks. FULL ARTICLE=>

 

US Plans Manning Plea Bargain to Get Assange

So determined is the U.S. government to corner Julian Assange, it plans to offer Pfc . Bradley Manning a plea bargain deal if he agrees to testify against the Wikileaks founder. Earlier in the week it was revealed that a secret grand jury was empaneled in northern Virginia to look at indicting Assange, who was released from jail yesterday in the United Kingdom.  FULL ARTICLE=>

DHS Implementing No Work List: Citizens Must Get Government Approval to Work in Private Sector Jobs

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, December 16, 2010   

 

You’ve heard of no fly and no buy lists – get ready for no work lists. Millions of workers now must apply to the DHS and prove they are not terrorists in order to be granted permission by the government to work.

 

On the Alex Jones Show today, a caller pointed to information posted on a union website for ironworkers spelling out details on the Department of Homeland Security’s TWIC and SWAC programs.  TWIC is short for Transportation Worker Identification Credential and SWAC stands for Secure Worker Access Consortium.

 

TWIC “is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted,” Ironworkers Local 361 in Ozone Park, New York, explains. “Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.”  FULL ARTICLE=> 

 

Sen. Jeff Session (R.-Ala.) told CNSNews.com on Wednesday that there is “no way” someone could master the full 1,924-page, $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill before Congress votes on it later this week. Other senators said they were working through the bill with their staff, and one remarked he would be “lucky” if he was able to read all of it.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Members of Congress seldom read any bills all the way through for themselves; their legal assistants generally read the bills and summarized their content for them. As for authoring of bills, particularly key bills such as Obamacare, that’s done by lobbyists promoting the bills for their employers and their lawyers. 

 

Lindsey Williams: Crude Oil Price Targeted for $150-200 Per Gallon

By Ron Larsen, Infowars.com, December 16, 2010           

 

During his hour-long radio interview on the Alex Jones show today, broadcast over GCNLive.com, longtime Alaska oil reserves expert Lindsey Williams told Alex that he’d learned recently from two of this longtime friends, both retired top executives of major oil producers, that the price of crude oil, now rising again, is slated to move to $150-200 per barrel soon.  According to Williams, the equivalent price of gasoline at the pump should range then between $4-5 per gallon.  In fact, the price for drivers in California is about four dollars already, he said.  FULL ARTICLE WITH VIDEO INTERVIEW=>

 

Feds Sue BP, Other Companies for Oil Spill Damages

Yahoo.com, December 16, 2010

 

A powerful plaintiff has joined the hundreds of people and businesses suing BP and other companies involved in the Gulf oil spill: the Justice Department.

 

The government, in an opening salvo in its effort to get billions of dollars for untold economic and environmental damage, accuses the companies of disregarding federal safety regulations in drilling the well that blew out April 20 and triggered a deadly explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig. Wednesday's lawsuit is separate from a Justice Department criminal probe that has not resulted in any charges.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  For the real story behind the BP oil spill, view Jesse Ventura - BP Oil Spill - Conspiracy Theory Season 2 Episode 7, Parts 1 through 4 on YouTube. Make sure to view all four parts. The program was broadcast for the first time on December 10 over TruTV.  Don’t miss viewing this YouTube replay now if you missed the TruTV showing. 

 

CIA Report Undercuts Obama's Rosy Evaluation of Afghan War

By Patrick Cockburn, The Independent, December 16, 2010

 

US intelligence agencies have given a pessimistic account of military progress in Afghanistan, undercutting the more upbeat assessments from the US military expected to be reflected today in President Obama's report on the war.

 

Some 16 intelligence agencies say in the classified National Intelligence Estimates (NIE) that large parts of Afghanistan are in danger of falling to the Taliban. They confirm that Pakistan is unwilling to end its secret support for the Taliban which uses Pakistani territory as a safe haven.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  In fact, the CIA funds Pakistan’s ISI, which in turn funds the Taliban with the same money.  What an efficient way for the White House, which controls the CIA, to keep its war going in Afghanistan and keep the civilian war machine and the banks that fund it rich!  War is a racket! Read War is a Racket, by USMC Maj. General Smedley Darlington Butler. Butler, now deceased, authored this book well over a half-century ago and its premiss still holds true: war, indeed, is still nothing more than a racket!

Crude Oil Price Targeted for $150-200/Barrel says Longtime Friend and Confidant of Two Retired Top Oil Execs

By Ron Larsen, LibertyCalling.com, December 15, 2010

 

During his hour-long radio interview on the Alex Jones show today, broadcast over GCNLive.com, Lindsey Williams told Alex that he’d learned recently from two of this longtime friends, both retired top executives of major oil producers, that the price of crude oil, now rising again, is slated to move to $150-200 per barrel soon.  According to Williams, the equivalent price of gasoline at the pump should range then between $4-5 per gallon.  In fact, the price for drivers in California is about four dollars already, he said.

 

Williams also told Alex that one of the execs had said him that the Euro is slated for collapse soon, although at an unspecified time.  Once this happens, the dollar will collapse within the next two to three weeks, wiping out tens of millions of Americans financially, presumably within a few days or a few weeks after that

 

Lindsey emphasized once again, as he has done on all his interviews with Alex over the years, that he knows these executives very well and trusts their information because these predictions are always on target and on time.  For this reason he implored Alex’s listeners to get prepared now for collapse of dollar and do whatever will be necessary for to survive and then live through this debacle. 

 

Williams became a friend and trusted confidant of these executives while he served as chaplain for them and their construction crews building the Alaska pipeline during the 1970s.  During that stay he learned that both of these executives were privy to the plans of the globalist elite to bring down nations of the world and create a new world order economy.  Because they trusted him, they allowed him to sit in on their private meeting and listen to them discuss their often-secret plans and programs.

 

Both executives have maintained their friendship with Williams since their days on the pipeline project with him.  They have also been willing to reveal the future plans of the globalists every so often ever since.  Furthermore, they have even let him reveal much of this information to the public during his radio interviews, through the videos he produces and through the content of his book, The Energy Non-Crisis. 

 

You can listen to the MP3 audio of this interview now.  Just click on this link to access the achieves of the Alex Jones show at GCNLivecom  Then select December 15, 2010, Hour 3, and then either click to open the MP3 file or download it to your computer for listening at another time.

DOJ Urges Citizens to Report “Extremists” Handing Out Literature

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, October 4, 2010

 

The Department of Homeland Security has designated returning veterans, Second Amendment activists, and members of state militias as “rightwing extremists” who are to be considered potential terrorists. The Missouri Information Analysis Center, under the direction of the DHS, expanded the list of possible terrorists to include supporters of Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin.

 

If you posted an Obama Joker poster or Tea Party literature on a public bulletin board, the Justice Department is warning you are a possible terrorist.  According to a hand-out distributed by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, a component of the Justice Department, “extremist literature distributed at the mall or posted on public bulletin boards” is suspicious and a potential indicator of terrorist activities.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

White Rose Society, Germany, June 1942: The First Leaflet

WhiteRoseSociety.org

 

Germans! Do you and your children want to suffer the same fate that befell the Jews? Do you want to be judged by the same standards are your traducers? Are we to be forever a nation which is hated and rejected by all mankind? No. Dissociate yourselves from National Socialist gangsterism. Prove by your deeds that you think otherwise.

 

A Call to All Germans!  
The war is approaching its destined end. As in the year 1918, the German government is trying to focus attention exclusively on the growing threat of submarine warfare, while in the East the armies are constantly in retreat and invasion in imminent in the West. Mobilization in the United States has not yet reached its climax, but already it exceeds anything that the world has ever seen. It has become a mathematical certainty that Hitler is leading the German people into the abyss. Hitler cannot win the war; he can only prolong it. The guilt of Hitler and his minions goes beyond all measure. Retribution comes closer and closer.  

But what are the German people doing? They will not see and will not listen. Blindly they follow their seducers into ruin. Victory at any price! is inscribed on their banner. "I will fight to the last man," says Hitler-but in the meantime the war has already been lost.  FULL ARTICLE=>

The Government Has An Appetite For Your Blood

BY Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, October 4, 2010

 

As we covered earlier this year, the government is harvesting samples of DNA from every newborn child in the country, storing them in monolithic bio banks and providing them to outside researchers and other agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, all without the consent or knowledge of parents.

 

The government has discovered a new way to obtain Americans’ blood in pursuit of an effort to surreptitiously build a huge national DNA database, by taking blood samples for HIV testing when drivers renew their license at the DMV.  “Starting Tuesday, getting tested for HIV in the District will be as easy as renewing a driver’s license,” reports the Washington Post.

 

The New Antiwar Populism: The Neocons are in a Panic over It

By Justin Raimondo, Antiwar.com, October 4, 2010

 

The War Party would like nothing better than to divide us, to separate out the “tea partiers” who question the expense of empire from the progressives who oppose Obama’s wars, and set them one against the other. This is how they’ve managed to maintain their dominance in spite of the views of the American majority.

 

The War Party is running scared – and with good reason. Writing in the Washington Post, neocons Danielle Pletka and Thomas Donnelly are in a panic that the rising “tea party” movement, which upended the Republican establishment at the polls, is about to abandon “the defense of freedom” in faraway Afghanistan in favor of rescuing what’s left of our freedom closer to home.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

October Surprise: Terror Hysteria Recycled In Election Ploy

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, October 4, 2010

 

In attempting to “force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security,” the establishment hopes to derail the momentum of Tea Party candidates like Rand Paul and Sharron Angle, whose entire campaigns are built on the premise of turning away from the state and giving power back to the individual.

 

The establishment media is giving full court press to announcements from US and European authorities that airport lobbies are being targeted for terror attacks in a recycled version of the laughable 2007 incident in which two retards set fire to a jeep outside Glasgow airport, a non-event that authorities hyped beyond all recognition amidst a similar wave of hysteria to that which we’re witnessing now.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Army Embeds Active-Duty PSYOPS Soldiers at Local TV stations

By John Cook, Yahoo.com, October 1, 2010

 

The relationship between PSYOPS, Training With Industry, and television news operations has stirred controversy in the past. In 2000, after a Dutch newspaper reported that PSYOPS troops had been placed in CNN's newsroom under the program.

 

The U.S. Army has used local television stations in the U.S. as training posts for some of its psychological-operations personnel, The Upshot has learned. Since at least 2001, both WRAL, a CBS affiliate in Raleigh, N.C., and WTOC, a CBS affiliate in Savannah, Ga., have regularly hosted active-duty soldiers from the Army's 4th Psychological Operations group as part of the Army's Training With Industry program.

 

Training With Industry is designed to offer career soldiers a chance to pick up skills through internships and fellowships with private businesses. The PSYOPS soldiers used WRAL and WTOC to learn broadcasting and communications expertise that they could apply in their mission, as the Army describes it, of "influenc[ing] the emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of foreign audiences."  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Shouldn’t that read “influencing …the behavior of foreign and domestic audiences?”

 

The President’s Power to Order the Extra-Judicial Execution of an American Citizen

By Scott Horton, Harpers Magazine, October 1, 2010

 

A number of commentators have questioned the president’s claim of authority to assassinate, some calling it “tyrannical.” As a wise observer wrote of the suspension of the habeas corpus right of Americans in 1777, tyranny comes “when liberty is nibbled away, for expedients, and by parts…. Now a line is drawn, which may be advanced further and further at pleasure, on the same arguments of mere expedience on which it was first described.”

 

When stories originally surfaced to the effect that President Obama had authorized the killing of an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, my first reaction was to say that the criticism of some civil libertarians was overblown. A warrior fighting on the battlefield against U.S. forces in a conflict has no privilege against being killed because he is a U.S. citizen—that’s a well-settled norm of the laws of war, upheld by the Supreme Court in Ex parte Quirin (1942).  FULL ARTICLE=>

Invading Pakistan: Phase II of Obama’s War

By Justin Raimondo, Antiwar.com, October 1, 2010

 

The Americans are constantly harping on the alleged unwillingness of Pakistani authorities to take on the terrorists, but in reality it is Pakistan that has caught and neutralized more terrorists than the US and its allies combined. However, the Obama administration facing political pressure on the home front to "do something," and stuck in a quagmire of its own making, needs a scapegoat – preferably a foreign (and Islamic) one. Pakistan fits the bill.

 

"We will have to see whether we are allies or enemies," said Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik after a US/NATO manned air strike took out three Pakistani soldiers and wounded three others. If it isn’t clear to the Pakistani minister, it is crystal clear to the people of Pakistan, who live in fear of constant US drone attacks – and, now, open violations of their country’s sovereignty. Anti-American sentiment is at an all-time high, and the increasingly fragile government – which hangs by a very thin thread – is being rapidly undermined by US actions.

 

The attack was launched "in self-defense," according to the US military, but the Pakistanis weren’t appeased: they promptly cut off a vital supply route into Afghanistan. Slowly, but surely, the Obama administration is keeping one of the President’s more ominous campaign promises – that he would invade Pakistan, if necessary, to "win" the war in Afghanistan. Even John McCain found this a scary prospect, and denounced it as "dangerous" – and yet we hear nary a peep from the Democratic-controlled Congress, nor are any Republicans, including McCain, raising objections.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Background Checks Required to Visit Your Kids at School

By Matt Ryan, Infowars.com, October 1, 2010

Over 3,700 schools in Texas and 7,000 nationwide have implemented a system requiring parents visiting their children to undergo a background check upon arrival to the school. This check is carried out by a company called Raptor, which summarizes their services as:

 

Thousands of schools and community facilities across the country use Raptor’s V-soft visitor management and screening technology to help protect children from sex offenders, domestic dispute offenders and other trespassers. V-soft works in conjunction with law enforcement to add an extra layer of security and keep our kids safe.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Feds Use Pre-Crime To Target Disgruntled Veterans

Western Surge in Obesity may have been Caused by a Virus

By Jeremy Laurence, The Independent, September 21, 2010

 

"Obesity is multifactorial – there is no single cause. Genes predispose to obesity, and family background. Then there is the onslaught by the food industry and the advertising industry. There is great value in as many researchers as possible looking in their own areas for the causes."

 

The obesity explosion that has swept the Western world over the past 30 years may have been caused by a virus, scientists have said.

 

Researchers have discovered new evidence for an illness they have called “infectobesity” – obesity that is transmitted from person to person, much like an infection. The agent thought to be responsible is a strain of adenovirus, versions of which cause the common cold. It has already been labelled the “fat bug”.

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  View Sugar:The Bitter Truth, a video produced in 2009 by University of California Television, documenting a lecture delivered by Dr. Robert Lustig, MD, of UC San Diego’s Medical School. Dr. Lustig presents convincing clinical evidence and associated biochemistry modeling that show the direct cause and effect relationship between the obesity explosion and the  dramatic ramping up of sugar consumption by consumers beginning in late 1970s.  Outstanding!

Authorities Plan To Trawl Phone Calls And E Mails For Signs Of ‘Resentment Toward Government’

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, September 30, 2010

Do you resent the government for enforcing Obamacare or raising your taxes? Write about it in an email or talk about it on the phone and you could be placed under surveillance as a potential terrorist, if frightening new technology being shopped to law enforcement agencies is implemented.

 

Forget pre-crime and get ready for face-crime, Big Brother is set to unleash a new wave of shockingly invasive and Orwellian technology on the American people if a recent symposium in Hamburg New York is anything to go by. Federal agencies, police departments and others were all in attendance to see a demonstration of a system that trawls phone conversations, emails and instant messages to detect “resentment toward government,” alerting authorities to potential “terrorists” who are then placed under surveillance.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

'Feds Radiating Americans'? Mobile X-ray Vans Hit US Streets

As an antiterror measure, the US government has deployed mobile X-ray technology to randomly scan cars and trucks. But the measure is riling privacy proponents.

By Patrik Jonsson, The Christian Science Monitor, September 29, 2010

For many living in a terror-spooked country, it might seem like a great government innovation: Use vans equipped with mobile X-ray units to scan vehicles at major sporting events, or even randomly, for bombs or contraband.

 

But news that the US is buying custom-made vans packed with something called backscatter X-ray capacity has riled privacy advocates and sparked internet worries about "feds radiating Americans."  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Feds Radiating Americans At Internal Checkpoints

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com September 29, 2010

Federal authorities do not concern themselves about the flood of illegal immigrants and drugs crossing the border every day, they’re more worried about radiating American truck drivers at internal checkpoints with mobile scanners that shoot dangerous x-rays through both vehicles and passengers.

 

As we reported last month, the federal government has acquired hundreds of backscatter x-ray scanners mounted in vans that they are now using to randomly scan vehicles, passengers and homes in complete violation of the 4th amendment and with wanton disregard for any health consequences.

 

Uranium Weapons, Low-Level Radiation and Deformed Babies

Global Research, January 1, 2010

A dramatic increase in the number of babies born with birth defects was recently reported by doctors working in Falluja, Iraq [1]. One of the proposed causes for this alarming situation is radiation exposure to the population produced by uranium weapons.

 

The international radiation protection community dismisses this explanation as completely unreasonable because (1) the radiation dose to the population of Iraq was too low, and (2) no evidence of birth defects was reported among offspring born to survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

What it Will Take to Restore America: Identify the Enemy?

Jacques Ex Deos Libertas, Activist Post, September 30, 2010

Never in the history of our nation have we faced so great a danger to our liberties, to our way of life, to our Republic. We now face a fifth column, an enemy so evil and so desperate, that no lie, no form of trickery, no deception is too great for them; to them the ends justify the means.

 

Many conservatives have labeled these enemies of the Republic as communists.  Although one of their own did invent the concept of communism, they are not communists. Many conservatives have labeled these traitors to America as socialists; this too is a fallacy, and though these people utilize socialism as a weapon as they have with communism, they are not really socialists either. Socialism was invented by them, promoted by them, and tweaked to its current form by them; but it too is only a means to an end. FULL ARTICLE=>

 

The Proof Is In The Numbers: America Is Getting Poorer

The Economic Collapse Blog, September 30, 2010

How in the world can anyone claim that things are getting better?  Sometimes the numbers are so clear that they simply cannot be denied.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income in the United States fell from $51,726 in 2008 to $50,221 in 2009.  That was the second yearly decline in median household income in a row.  In other words, America is getting poorer.

 

Just let that statistic above sink in for a little bit.  In 2009, American families had roughly $1,500 less coming in than the year before.  Not that the cost of living has gone down either.  Have you been to the supermarket lately?  Things are getting ridiculous out there.  In fact, middle class American families are being squeezed as never before.  More mothers and fathers are scrambling to find second and third jobs just to pay the mortgage and to keep the lights on and to put food on the table.  This is not a time of prosperity in America.  We are in a state of serious decline and it is time to wake up and admit it.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

One in 28 US Kids has a Parent in Prison

By Daniel Tencer, Raw Story, September 30, 2010

The US’s exceptionally high rate of incarceration is causing economic damage not only to the people behind bars but to their children and taxpayers as a whole, a new study finds.  The study (PDF) from the Pew Research Center’s Economic Mobility Project, released Tuesday, reports that the US prison population has more than quadrupled since 1980, from 500,000 to 2.3 million, making the US’s incarceration rate the highest in the world, beating former champions like Russia and South Africa.

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Expect the incarceration rate to increase dramatically as the economic depression we find ourselves in deepens and unemployment levels attain levels far greater than the American people experienced during the Great Depression of the 1930s.  Does anyone or any business sector benefit? Yes.

 

Who benefits? Government contractors, both state and federal, that operate manufacturing facilities within prisons, where the inmates are paid mid-19th century, cotton picker wages to produce U.S. military battlefield helmets, furniture and other military and consumer goods. Companies that specialize in constructing prisons and providing guards to man these prisons.  There are many, many other beneficiaries of a rising rate of incarceration, as one might imagine.

 

Study: Wars could Cost $4 Trillion to $6 Trillion

By Leo Shane III, Stars and Stripes, September 30, 2010

The authors of the book "The $3 Trillion War" noted in a conference call on Wednesday that when they first released their findings two years ago, the estimates were widely criticized as being too high. Now, the researchers believe they may have been too low.

 

Joseph Stiglitz, who received the 2000 Nobel Prize for Economics, and Linda Bilmes, a public policy professor at Harvard University, said the number of veterans seeking post-combat medical care and the cost of treating those individuals is about 30 percent higher than they initially estimated. That, combined with increases in the cost of military medical care and the lagging economy, will likely push the true long-term cost of the war over the $4 trillion mark.

The US supremacy as the top world economy will end sooner than many people believe, so gold is a better investment than the dollar despite it hitting a new record, Tom Winnifrith, CEO at financial services firm Rivington Street Holdings, told CNBC.com Monday.  The US trade deficit and debt continue to grow and the authorities are reluctant to address the problem, preferring to print money, Winnifrith said.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Obama: ‘The Generals Made Me Do It!’

By Jason Raimondo, Antiwar.com, September 29, 2010

All Washington is atwitter: the grand old man of the Court Historians, Bob Woodward, has come out with yet another “book” – i.e. another long-winded press release on behalf of the Powers That Be – explaining, “reporting,” and rationalizing the war policies of the current regime. Oh, glory be! Drop everything and run to the nearest bookstore – or just go online and download the excerpts at the Washington Post‘s incredibly cumbersome web site, loaded down with so many ads, pop-ups, and pop-outs that one imagines his next book will be out before your computer stops grinding.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Reports: US Drone Strike Killed ‘Al-Qaeda Leader’

By Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, September 28, 2010

Today’s US drone strike in the South Waziristan Agency, the latest in an almost daily salvo of strikes this month, killed four people including, according to Pakistani officials, the “third-in-command” of al-Qaeda Shaikh al-Fateh.

 

If the story sounds familiar it is because the killing of al-Qaeda’s third-in-command has been a several time a year occurance during the global war on terror. As only the top two members of the organization are well known, the killings of the organization’s “number three” are regularly reported and spun as a major victory, though they never seem to change the situation on the ground.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

When False Flags Don’t Fly    Includes Video

James Corbett, The Corbett Report, April 19, 2010

 

In every civilization, in every culture, in every historical period, authoritarians have known that spectacular acts of violence help to further consolidate their own power and control. And sadly, throughout history there have been all too many willing to allow attacks to occur, to pretend that attacks have occurred or even to attack their own population in order to further their political agenda.

 

Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero.

 

Acts of terror and violence never benefit the average man or woman. They only ever benefit those in positions of power.

 

This is why Nero fiddled while Rome burned: it gave him a chance to throw the Christians to the lions and rebuild the capital of the Roman Empire in his own image.

 

This is why Hearst and the warmongers of the emerging American Empire were delighted by the destruction of the U.S.S. Maine in Havana Harbor: it gave them the excuse they needed in order to rouse the public into supporting the Spanish-American War.

 

This is why Israel attacked the U.S.S. Liberty in 1967 during the Six Day War, strafing and torpedoing it relentlessly for hours in a vain attempt to send it to the bottom: the Israelis believed that the loss of the Liberty could be blamed on Egypt and draw the Americans into war.  FULL ARTICLE AND VIDEO=>

 

Pirates? No, the Pearls of the Carribean and Place to Move to When its Time to ‘Get out of Dodge’ Just have a Shot at Survival

The Caribbean is the most culturally and linguistically diverse cluster of islands in the world. Echoes of past conquests and settlements by powers including Britain, France, Netherlands, Spain and the US remain, but colonial rivalry and slavery are long gone.

 

Nowadays, the region is more about palm-fringed beaches, golden sands, turquoise seas and rum-cocktail sunsets. Forming an arc from the north-western tip of Cuba to Venezuela, the area has a rich topographical landscape, ranging from volcanic islands to coral atolls. Luxuriant vegetation flourishes across most islands, notably mango, white cedar, cashew and banana trees. FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  It might be prudent to forget about selecting Costa Rica as your safe hiding place.  Barack and before him George have already loaded up that fun paradise with U.S. military troops.  Also, to a large extent the White House, using the threat of banning Costa Rican imports, has already begun to call the shots on which crops that country’s farmers may grow and export to America.  And what kind of crops does Washington want the Costa Rican’s to raise?  GMs, of course!  Monsanto gets its ugly nose in everywhere.

Glenn Beck Channels Alex Jones to Sell Globalist Snake Oil         Video

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, September 28, 2010

Glenn Beck is paid millions of dollars a year to deflect the righteous anger of the American people away from the bankster elite and focus it on a gaggle of washed-up 60s radicals. In the process, meaningful political action is harmlessly deflected away from the controllers and safely expended on a handful of useful idiot scapegoats funded by globalist foundations, so-called progressive PACs, and corporate labor unions.

 

It is amazing how much Glenn Beck sounds like Alex Jones. The reason for this is because Beck’s people listen to the Alex Jones Show, take notes, and then relay what Jones talks about on any given day back to their master. An inside source at Fox News has verified this to be the case.

 

Beck then takes what Jones talks about and refashions it into his trademark attack on irrelevant leftists, Marxists, admirers of Mao and Stalin, archaic SDS throwbacks — who were long ago infiltrated by the FBI — and academic socialist utopians who have about as much of a chance of taking power as an invasion of six-eyed aliens from Planet X do.  FULL ARTICLE WITH VIDEOS=>

 

Amazing “Coincidence”: UT Shooting Cancels Pro-Gun Speech

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, September 28, 2010

 

The timing of mass shootings, although thankfully in this case there were no victims aside from the gunman, routinely coincide with the passage of stringent gun laws or debates about concealed carry on campus.

 

A shooting at the University of Texas campus that was initially blamed on a lone nut took on a political aspect after it emerged that the incident coincided with a speech by second amendment expert John Lott about the right to concealed carry that was due to take place tonight but has since been cancelled.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Concealed Carry Event Coincides With University of Texas Shooting

Infowars.com, September 28, 2010

Infowars.com has learned that an open carry event was scheduled on the UT campus today, the scene of a shooting earlier today. From the Students for Liberty website:. 

 

On Tuesday, September 28 at 6:00pm, a coalition of student organizations on the University of Texas Austin campus, including the Libertarian Longhorns, the UT Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, the UT Objectivism Society and the UT Federalist Society, will be hosting John Lott, famed defender of gun rights and author of the book “More Guns, Less Crime”.

 

Lott’s work in “More Guns, Less Crime” is commonly cited by many liberty-minded people when arguing against gun control laws, and Lott will be sharing some of his expertise in this field to the audience of students and members of the community of Austin.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Gunman at University of Texas Austin Takes Own Life, Lockdown Lifted

By Russell Goldman, ABC News, September 28, 2010

A gunman wearing a ski mask and brandishing a rifle entered a library at the University of Texas at Austin today and fired several shots before taking his own life, sparking a campus-wide lockdown and fears that a second shooter may be on the loose.

 

Just before noon Central Time, a campus lockdown in effect since around 8 a.m. was lifted, ending a search for a possible second suspect. Police believe the gunman was a student, but are awaiting a report from the medical examiner to confirm his identity, officials said.  FULL ARTICLE INCLUDING VIDEOS WITH UPDATED INFO=>

 

LC Editor’s Comments:  The videos include the name of alleged shooter and a report that he had a “troubling history”, including his having been a resident for a year at a psychiatric facility and had been taking mood stabilizing medications. In one interview a staff member of that facility suggested that the shooter have taken himself off his meds and this had precipitated his behavior today at UT Austin. They also include mention of recent shootings on two other Austin campuses over the past few days.

CIA Dramatically Escalating Drone Strikes Against Pakistan

By Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, September 28, 2010

Though the attention tonight is squarely on the US military’s brief incursion into Pakistani territory and the 60 people killed in that attack, the CIA continues to escalate their policy of drone strikes against Pakistani territory to alarming levels. 

 

In fact, a flurry of strikes over the weekend has brought the total number of strikes to at least 20 in the month of September alone. From a rarely used tactic during the waning days of the Bush Administration, hardly a day goes by when US missiles aren’t killing someone in Pakistan’s tribal areas.

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  I, Ronald E. Larsen, PhD, Editor and Publisher of LibertyCalling.com, move the 18-22 year old, cowardly, hotshot, former computer-game-playing kid now working for President Obama, flying armed UVAs over Pakistan from the comfort of offices located in the U.S., and using these planes to slaughter innocent civilian Pakistanis in their own homeland be arrested, charged with murder, indicted on multiple counts of murder, and be tried in federal courts on these counts.

 

The dozen or more convictions, incarcerations for life, and REAL executions of these cowardly,  vile murders, not mock executions shown on comuter screens, that could come out of the actions proposed in this motion ought to convince thousands of snot-nosed, would be killers for Obama to stick to playing socially acceptable electronic games on their home commuters for entertainment and choose to get life-enhancing rather than misery-creating, life-destroying jobs to earn the money to pay for their rent and buy their groceries.

 

Which folks among my readers have the guts to second my motion?  If YOU are the one of these folks, please email me  at ron@libertycalling.com, type KID MURDERS FOR BARRY in the subject line, and tell me in thirty (35) words or less why you have chosen to second my motion.

Barack Obama, Leon Panetta and Robert Gates: Hit men vs. the Constitution

By Nat Hentoff, The Trentonian, September 21, 2010

President Obama, CIA Director Leon Panetta and Defense Secretary Robert Gates are now defendants in a historic lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, Washington, by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights.  The case is brought on behalf of American citizen Nasser Al-Aulaqi.

 

The complaint in the case starkly and accurately lays out the constitutional issue at stake in these words:  “This case concerns the executive’s asserted authority to carry out ‘targeted killings’ of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism far from any field of armed conflict.”

The complaint says the U.S. government “maintains lists of suspects — ‘kill lists’ — against whom lethal force can be used without charge, trial or conviction.”  The Constitution clearly commands that “no person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Palin and Beck Don’t Support the Troops

By Kelley S. Vlahos, Antiwar.com, September 28, 2010

Sarah Palin tells us that it is a mother’s ancient duty to raise her sons and then hand them over to the government to fight its wars.

 

She also said on Aug. 28, quite stridently, dressed in white against the marble white backdrop of the Lincoln Memorial steps, that the virtue and honor she and Glenn Beck demand must be “restored” throughout the nation, remains untarnished in our “warriors.” In fact, where the American people have been led astray, military men and women possess the bright, white righteousness to lead us back.

 

LC Editor’s Commentary: Tea Party Folks -- What are you made of now? False patriot rhetoric and scrunched up American flags made by slaves in China? Why do you hang out with neocon Sweet Sarah. 

 

As to following the lead of the sliver-tongued actor Glenn Beck? Need I go further?  Glenn and Sarah may be nice enough folks to have as neighbors, hang out with during the holidays, and go camping with.  But right now they have a job to do, one that may not always serve the best interest of the Tea Party as originally constituted, the republic or the American people.

 

So, do yourselve and America a big favor! Read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Federalist Papers with care and deliberation even you have done that before.  Then take a good hard look at yourself and your own beliefs and at the candidates you now endorse. Then decide whether the founders of our republic would applaud or boo you, what you are promoting as right and just for America and what those you endorse really stand for and promise they will do if elected. 

 

If you believe the founders would boo rather than applaud, you need to wake up and take stock.  You need to do a check up from the neck up, fix what needs to be fixed, clean house, and take your party back from the neocon interlopers – and there are many of them. 

 

The republic depends upon your doing what’s right instead of what’s popular, cool and groovy with “in” crowd of the Tea Party now. Your job should be take back our republic from from the tryanical, warmongering, Constitution fouting, Bill of Rights bashing politicians of both major parties, both in and out of office, who snatched it away from us because we were not paying attention or simply bought into their con jobs. Your job should NOT be to “Beat the liberals!”  Now do what’s right.!

NRA Supports Frivolous Microstamping, Evaluation Study Act

Illinois Gun, Infowars.com, September 27, 2010

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms, disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.” -Cesare Beccaria

 

In a time of increasing unemployment and home foreclosures the NRA as decided to support a bill that according to their own fact sheet maybe be a waste of (taxpayers) money.

 

On July 1, 2010, Representative Dan Boren (D-Okla.) introduced HR 5667, the Firearms, Microstamping, Evaluation and Study Act. The Bill would require a study to determine if a low cost and reliable form of microstamping could be incorporated into the manufacturing of a firearm.

 

Gun control advocates believe microstamping technologies combined with a registration list of guns and their owners would create a rapid identification system for firearms used in crime.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

FDA Refuses to Require Labeling of Genetically Modified Salmon

By Mike Adams, Natural News, September 27, 2010

As the FDA stands poised to approve genetically modified (GM) salmon safe for public consumption, the next logical question concerns how GM salmon would be labeled. Would the fish come with a large red warning that says, "Genetically modified salmon"?

As it turns out, no. In fact, the FDA has already gone on the record stating it will not require any special labeling of genetically modified salmon. You, the consumer, just have to take a wild guess because you're not allowed to know what you're really eating.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Watercress Prevents Cancer

By Jonathan Benson, Natural News, September 27, 2010

 

Watercress has been used for centuries to treat other ailments like migraine headaches, eczema, anemia, tuberculosis and kidney and liver disease. It contains a wide variety of healing nutrients and, since it is a food and not a drug, it can be safely consumed in large quantities to obtain therapeutic benefit.

 

New research out of the Cancer Research Centre at Southampton General Hospital's School of Medicine in the U.K. has found that watercress, a superfood vegetable, works to reduce levels of the key growth factor that causes tumor growth. According to researchers, regular consumption of watercress works the same as -- if not better than -- conventional anti-cancer drug treatments, except without all the harmful side effects.

"Watercress has the ability to turn off HIF1, a signal sent out by cells calling for blood supply," explains Dr. Nicholas Perricone, an anti-aging specialist, concerning the study. "Scientists have been looking for anti-angiogenesis agents for years because if we can turn off the blood supply, we can kill the cancer. And it looks like watercress can do that."  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Banksters Inflate Speculative Food Bubble, UN Offers Global Governance Solution

By Eric Blair, Activist Post, September 27, 2010

Never let a good crisis go to waste.

Create the food inflation problem (of course profiting all the way up), force an enraged reaction among the public, and take more sovereignty away with the solution of global food regulation.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Attorney: FBI Raids Aimed at Silencing Antiwar Activists  

FBI "Took Any Documents Containing the Word Palestine"

By Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, September 26. 2010

 

Officials seem to be fishing for evidence that they can somehow used to tie the domestic antiwar movement to some foreign terrorist group and charge its members with providing “material aid to terrorism.” Yet whether they can manufacture this evidence or not, the tactics used in the search seem certain to have a deleterious effect on the ablity to speak out against the administration going forward. 

 

Midwestern Antiwar groups are continuing to struggle to make sense of a series of high profile Friday raids by the FBI, which officials said were part of a “Joint Terrorism Task Force” investigation but which many are seeing as a direct attempt to intimidate them.  The government is trying to quiet activists,” insisted lawyer Jim Fennerty, whose client Hatem Abudayyeh’s home was among the eight raided on Friday. “This case is really scary.”

 

The Collapse of Western Morality

By Paul Craig Roberts, GlobalResearch.ca, September 23, 2010

Yes, I know, as many readers will be quick to inform me, the West never had any morality. Nevertheless things have gotten worse.

 

The US government, a font of imperial hubris, does not believe that any act it commits, no matter how vile, can possibly be a war crime. One million dead Iraqis, a ruined country, and four million displaced Iraqis are all justified, because the “threatened” US Superpower had to protect itself from nonexistent weapons of mass destruction that the US government knew for a fact were not in Iraq and could not have been a threat to the US if they were in Iraq.

 

In hopes that I will be permitted to make a point, permit me to acknowledge that the US dropped nuclear bombs on two Japanese cities, fire-bombed Tokyo, that Great Britain and the US fire-bombed Dresden and a number of other German cities, expending more destructive force, according to some historians, against the civilian German population than against the German armies, that President Grant and his Civil War war criminals, Generals Sherman and Sheridan, committed genocide against the Plains Indians, that the US today enables Israel’s genocidal policies against the Palestinians, policies that one Israeli official has compared to 19th century US genocidal policies against the American Indians, that the US in the new 21st century invaded Iraq and Afghanistan on contrived pretenses, murdering countless numbers of civilians, and that British prime minister Tony Blair lent the British army to his American masters, as did other NATO countries, all of whom find themselves committing war crimes under the Nuremberg standard in lands in which they have no national interests, but for which they receive an American pay check.  FULL ARTICLE (It gets even more grotesque)=>

'US, Mossad Played Roles in 9/11 Event'

Following the Iranian president's doubts on the 9/11 event, a top military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution says the CIA and Mossad were involved in the attacks.

PressTV, September 26, 2010

The US and the Zionists developed the strategy of the September 11 attacks in an effort to counter the Islamic vigilance and to control energy resources in the Middle East," IRNA quoted Brigadier General Yahya Rahim-Safavi as saying on Saturday. 

 

He further added that al-Qaeda and its leader Osama bin Laden did not possess the essential intelligence capacity anywhere near the level of CIA, Pentagon and the FBI in order to conduct the surprise attacks against sensitive centers in the United States on September 11.  According to General Rahim-Safavi, heads of Israel's Mossad and the US played roles in the event.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Justice Dept: Assassinations Up to President, Not Courts, to Decide

By Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, September 26, 2010

The Obama Administration is fighting tooth and nail to kill a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of New Mexico cleric Anwar Awlaki, arguing that even though Awlaki isn’t charged with any crimes it “strains credulity” to argue that the US government needs to present evidence before assassinating the US citizen. 

 

LC Editor’s Comment: If the Justice Department successfully defends itself before this court and has the lawsuit put down by it, appeals by the ACLU to higher courts, ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court, are likely to follow. 

 

If the highest court in the land either refuses to hear the case or finds in favor of the Justice Department, the Obama administration will have successfully put those American people upset with the goings on of his administration and being vocal about it on formal notice to sit down and shut up!

 

That is, henceforth they’ll know that any one of them might be cut down by a government assassin’s bullet if that person chooses to buck the system, pushes too hard to rid Washington of too many crooked politicians, or – Heaven forbid – locks onto some really credible birth certificate documentation that ends up sticking like a honey smear on a freshly pressed $2,000 suit.

 

The doomed person would not need be arrested, formally charged with committing any crime, nor indicted, nor brought to trial, nor convicted and nor sentence beforehand.  In fact the President would be operating on firm legal grounds if chose to circumvent the due process requirements of the Bill of Rights entirely, instead choosing to simply make the right phone call to get some prompt action.

 

That assassination might very well be might be carried out in an environment of total secrecy, unknown to the public and unknown to even key members of Congress.  However, suppose some eager investigative reporter did discover a killing had occurred, did his research, and then published his blockbuster story in a major paper or go it shown on TV?  In that case, the White House would certainly end up pulling off an epic event to whitewash that story, thereby placating the fears of Joe Six Pack and Suzy Soccer Mom and having them turn quickly to the sports and home furnishings pages to gain instant relief from painful reality. 

 

But would that news story every gain any real traction in the legal community? That is, would the relatives of the whacked person ever see justice done? No, that’s unlikely simply because by operating under the authority of recent State Secrecy Ruling rendered earlier this month by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the White House could legally block full public inquiry into such an assassination.

 

It could do this by simply refusing to release records relevant to the murder, asserting that doing so would endanger the security of the United States.  The White House wouldn’t want to put the American people’s lives in danger, would it?

 

Be aware that the new secrecy ruling applies to all happenings past and present that the White House claims are related to national security, not just assassinations ordered by the President.  So it’s virtually certain that the Obama White House will end up using the authority given to it through secrecy ruling to hide other heinous government misdeeds and criminal activities.

 

For example, it will almost certainly use it to thwart and then block legal moves by any and all 911-truth organizations to have 9/11 Commission reconvene and initiate a new – this time, proper – investigation of the events of 911.

 

My, oh my! Shades of Hitler’s Nazi Germany, Chairman Mao’s China and Stalin’s Soviet Union – that’s what’s been discussed here!  Folks, get used to living in the U.S. under a de facto totalitarian dictatorship – one that has been in place and growing in strength for a far longer period of time than Barack Obama has been in office --- or do something about it now. 

 

Hint: Electing Republicans in a straight ticket vote to replace Democrats is not the solution.  Some of the most draconian, freedom and liberty killing, Constitution eviscerating and Bill of Rights smashing acts and laws ever to become Public (Federal) Law came into being under the President George W. Bush and a Republican controlled Congress. Here is a giant Republican exception: U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, Dr. Constitution to many of his followers!  Read about him in the Campaign for Liberty online. Use great caution in voting for Tea Party candidates.  Read about the Tea Party in this article, 'Tea Party' Activists: Do they Hate Liberals More than they Love Liberty?

 

Surge in the Price of Gold: The Inner Workings of the International Gold Market

By Bob Chapmen, The International Forecaster/Global Research, September 25, 2010

 

The media is totally unwilling to report the manipulative affects of government intervention in all of these precious metals and share markets. Never are the real fundamentals reported. The same is true regarding the general stock market and in the Forex market, both of which are in perfect head and shoulders formations on long-term charts. This is called lying by omission.

 

We recently saw gold at $1,300.00 an ounce. That is a long way from $35.00 an ounce on August 15, 1971, just a year shy of 40 years, from when President Nixon closed the gold window. Over the past ten years gold has been up about 20% a year. Shares and mint state graded numismatic coins have certainly outperformed gold bullion. We suppose we’ll know in the final analysis what government manipulation has done to prices and results. We believe that what they have done has been criminal for which they will never be prosecuted. On the other hand buyers have had an unprecedented opportunity to buy gold and silver, bullion, coins and shares at artificially suppressed prices. That condition still exists. Year-to-date in 2010 gold is up about 17%.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Obama Invokes 'State Secrets' Claim to Dismiss Suit Against Targeting of US Citizen al-Aulaqi

By Spencer S. Hsu. The Washington Times, September 25, 2010

 

The Obama administration has cited the state-secrets argument in at least three cases since taking office - in defense of Bush-era warrantless wiretapping, surveillance of an Islamic charity, and the torture and rendition of CIA prisoners. It prevailed in the last case last week, on a 6 to 5 vote by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

 

The Obama administration urged a federal judge early Saturday to dismiss a lawsuit over its targeting of a U.S. citizen for killing overseas, saying that the case would reveal state secrets.  The U.S.-born citizen, Anwar al-Aulaqi, is a cleric now believed to be in Yemen. Federal authorities allege that he is leading a branch of al-Qaeda there.  Government lawyers called the state-secrets argument a last resort to toss out the case, and it seems likely to revive a debate over the reach of a president's powers in the global war against al-Qaeda.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  What a cesspool the former land of the free and home of the brave has become.  A United States President seeks to invoke the State Secrets at to protect a former U.S. President from might have lead to federal indictment of anybody but a U.S. President on multiple counts of felony. 

 

Furthermore, the same President uses the same law to block exposure of evidence that might have proved that CIA operatives under the direction of the Bush White House did kidnap persons, fly them to overseas locations, and there have them torture for the purpose of eliciting confessions and providing intelligence data, violations of international law and existing treaties.

 

And now the same President, invoking the provisions of the same state secrets law, petitions the courts to set aside a lawsuit brought against him and the U.S. government seeking relief and remedy for the targeting a U.S. citizen for assassination. 

 

Are we living in the real, modern equivalent of mystery thriller author and television producer Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone weekly television show of several score years ago?  Or are we now living in The Matrix, whether we are aware of it or not?  Or could it be that American people as well as President Obama are suffering from some sort of mass psychosis that allow a President of the United States to behave in this reprehensible, perhaps even criminal manner and still get away with doing it?

 

But before my readers answer those questions they need to ask themselves this vital question: Could a natural born American citizen who had become President of the United State allow himself to order the assassination of another American citizen, given that this American had never been indicted for a capital crime, nor tried for such crime, nor convicted of that crime in a court of law?  It’s an interesting question to ponder over and it will surely be a difficult one for some of my readers to answer with complete honesty.

 

Why It’s Time for the Tea Party

By Peggy Noonan, Op-Ed, Wall Street Journal, September 21, 2010

 

One difference so far between the tea party and the great wave of conservatives that elected Ronald Reagan in 1980 is the latter was a true coalition—not only North and South, East and West but right-wingers, intellectuals who were former leftists, and former Democrats. When they won presidential landslides in 1980, '84 and '88, they brought the center with them. That in the end is how you win. Will the center join arms and work with the tea party? That's a great question of 2012.

 

This fact marks our political age: The pendulum is swinging faster and in shorter arcs than it ever has in our lifetimes. Few foresaw the earthquake of 2008 in 2006. No board-certified political professional predicted, on Election Day 2008, what happened in 2009-10 (New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts) and has been happening, and will happen, since then. It all moves so quickly now, it all turns on a dime.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

'Tea Party' Activists: Do they Hate Liberals More than they Love Liberty?

By James Bovard, The Christian Science Monitor, August 23, 2010

 

Many of the attendees seemed to hate liberals far more than they loved liberty. A CBS/New York Times poll conducted in April showed that two-thirds of tea party members have a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin, and 57 percent have a favorable opinion of George W. Bush. Denouncing big government while approving of President Bush is like denouncing immodesty while sunning oneself on a nude beach

 

Many “tea party” activists staunchly oppose big government, except when it is warring, wiretapping, or waterboarding. A movement that started out denouncing government power apparently has no beef with some of the worst abuses of modern times.  Unfortunately, there is scant evidence that most tea partyers have studied the copies of the Constitution they generously hand out to bystanders.  FULL ARTICLE=>

It Is Official: The US Is A Police State

By Paul Craig Roberts, Antiwar.com, September 25, 2010

 

Under the practices put in place by the Bush and Obama regimes, and approved by corrupt federal judges, protesters who have been compromised by fake terrorist groups can be declared "enemy combatants" and sent off to Egypt, Poland, or some other corrupt American puppet state — Canada perhaps — to be tortured until confession is forthcoming that antiwar protesters and, indeed, every critic of the US government, are on Osama bin Laden’s payroll.

 

On September 24, Jason Ditz reported on Antiwar.com that "the FBI is confirming that this morning they began a number of raids against the homes of antiwar activists in Illinois, Minneapolis, Michigan, and North Carolina, claiming that they are ‘seeking evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism.’" 

 

Now we know what Homeland Security (sic) secretary Janet Napolitano meant when she said on September 10: "The old view that ‘if we fight the terrorists abroad, we won’t have to fight them here’ is just that — the old view."  The new view, Napolitano said, is "to counter violent extremism right here at home."  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Feds Expand War On Terror, Raid Communist Antiwar Activists

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, September 24, 2010

 

SWAT raids on antiwar activists who are associated with a questionable communist organization long ago compromised by the FBI are intended to expand the manufactured threat of domestic terrorism beyond the narrow confines of Islamic terrorism to fringe political organizations in the United States and ultimately to the real threat to the establishment – the growing patriot and Tea Party movement.

 

Following the absurd hyperbole of senior Obama administration officials earlier this week warning that the CIA’s Night of the Walking Dead cave dwellers will attempt small scale attacks against the United States, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force dispatched SWAT teams to the homes of antiwar activists in Minneapolis and Chicago in order to keep alive and expand the terrorism mantra.  FULL TEXT PLUS VIDEO=>

 

Murderers, Cowards, Morons and Thieves: Portrait of an Empire in a Political Season

By Chris Floyd, EmpireBurlesque.com September 22, 2010

 

Even the perpetrators of these war crimes no longer pretend that these conflicts have any real purpose; the War Machine’s own “intelligence analysts” regularly report that the wars are exacerbating the very problems they are ostensibly designed to quell: violent extremism, divisive tribalism, ignorance and poverty, repression of women, political instability in strategic regions, fear and insecurity at home, etc. But none of this matters – not to the Peace Laureate and his party of spineless corporate servitors, nor to the Republicans and their cretinous Tea Partiers, nor, it seems, to the vast majority of the American public who follow these blood-soaked factions of ruthless, third-rate gangsters, bagmen, morons and courtiers.

 

Jason Ditz at Antiwar.com continues his lonely vigil of documenting the carnage being inflicted upon civilians in Pakistan by the increasingly frenzied drone missile attacks ordered by the Peace Laureate in the White House.

Almost every day, Ditz has fresh hell to offer up on the story of this remarkably brazen campaign of outright war crimes. Most of his pieces draw on foreign sources; there is almost nothing in the American press about this literally inhuman invasion of the sovereign territory of a nation allied to the United States. It is truly a bizarre situation; then again, in a militarist system whose pervasive moral depravity has long reached lunatic proportions, murdering the children of your allies is perhaps not so unusual. Certainly, the guardians of our public discourse don’t consider it

newsworthy in any way.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

US Congressmen to Obama: Free Spy-for-Israel Pollard to Facilitate Mideast Peace

Jonathan Pollard, a former civilian intelligence analyst, was sentenced to life in U.S. prison in 1987 on charges of spying for Israel.

By Haartz Service, September 24, 2010

 

A statement released by Democratic Representative Barney Frank "notes the positive impact that a grant of clemency would have in Israel, as a strong indication of the goodwill of our nation towards Israel and the Israeli people."

 

Several United States congressmen have signed a petition calling on U.S. President Barack Obama to pardon Jonathan Pollard, jailed in the U.S. for over 25 years for spying, in order to advance the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported on Thursday. Pollard, a former civilian intelligence analyst, was sentenced to life in prison in 1987 on charges of spying on the U.S. for Israel.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Whatever Tel Aviv wants (Washington to do for it) Tel Aviv gets, even if the American people – but not certain members of Congress nor the international banking corsortium nor the military weapons industry nor Big Oil, all of which do very well for themselves, indeed -- end up losing sons and daughter to death on the battlefield directly or indirectly in defense of Israel’s interests by the White House. This situation has persisted throughout all changes in President and in members of Congress since Israel came into being in 1947, fifty-three years ago.  Whatever Israel wants from the U.S. it gets, and Congress and the White House seem eager to deliver the goods. How can this be? Authors John Mearshimer and Stephen Wall provide several answers in their book The Israel Lobby, next.

 

The Israel Lobby

By John Mearshimer and Stephen Walt, London Review of Books, March 23, 2006

 

A key pillar of the Lobby’s effectiveness is its influence in Congress, where Israel is virtually immune from criticism. This in itself is remarkable, because Congress rarely shies away from contentious issues. Where Israel is concerned, however, potential critics fall silent. One reason is that some key members are Christian Zionists like Dick Armey, who said in September 2002: ‘My No. 1 priority in foreign policy is to protect Israel.’ One might think that the No. 1 priority for any congressman would be to protect America. There are also Jewish senators and congressmen who work to ensure that US foreign policy supports Israel’s interests.

 

For the past several decades, and especially since the Six-Day War in 1967, the centrepiece of US Middle Eastern policy has been its relationship with Israel. The combination of unwavering support for Israel and the related effort to spread ‘democracy’ throughout the region has inflamed Arab and Islamic opinion and jeopardised not only US security but that of much of the rest of the world.

 

This situation has no equal in American political history. Why has the US been willing to set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of another state?

 

One might assume that the bond between the two countries was based on shared strategic interests or compelling moral imperatives, but neither explanation can account for the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the US provides.  FULL ARTICLE=>

The Hollow Man: Rand Paul’s Father Complex   

By Jason Raimondo, Antiwar.com, September 24, 2010

 

If he’s already selling out for no good reason, and this before he even gets into office, ask yourself what he’ll do to stay in office. There’s no end to this daisy chain of betrayal-and-rationalization, no logical cut off point for the "temporary" adjustments supposedly necessary for electoral success.  

 

I get lots of junk email, perhaps more than most, and I ignore 99.9 percent of it, but the other day I got one from the Rand Paul campaign that for some reason stood out, and in an idle moment I opened it, and read: 

 

"Can you help our campaign fight back, today and in the coming weeks, against the libelous attacks of the leftist media?" 

 

Libelous? Hmmm, I thought, that’s a strange way for a libertarian to phrase it.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Assassination of Pakistani political figure in London linked to CIA, Mossad, and RAW  

By Wayne Madsen, Wayne Madsen Report and  OnlineJournal.com, September 24, 2010

 

WMR previously reported that the Pakistani Taliban was being blamed for a spate of terrorist attacks in Pakistan that were actually carried out by Blackwater/Xe personnel operating under the aegis of the CIA.  The destabilization operation is intended to weaken the Pakistani governments control over the country to the point Western military forces, as well as those of India and Israel, will have a reason to seize Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal.

 

The assassination on September 16 of exiled Pakistani Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) [United National Movement] leader Imran Farooq outside of his Edgware, London home has been linked to the ongoing joint CIA-Israeli Mossad-Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) Pakistan destabilization program, according to WMR’s Asian intelligence sources who have been closely monitoring the attempts by the three foreign intelligence agencies to bring about chaos in Pakistan.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Even Your Best Friends won’t Tell You  

By Jerry Mazza, Infowars.com, September 24, 2010

 

In August of 2001, Bin Laden had been in the American Hospital where he met his CIA handler (from his Mujahadeen days), but then he was in the hospital for dialysis for a serious kidney disease. Purportedly he ran the 9/11 op from a cave on the Pak/Afghan border from a laptop. Whether or not his aides totted his dialysis machine to the cave is in doubt.

 

As I remember, that has been a headline for everything from bad breath to dandruff sufferers to those suffering from body odors. The headline was ideal shame-making for manufacturers of mouthwashes, dandruff shampoos, deodorants and antiperspirants. And now it applies to our purported worst enemy, the President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmedinejad. That is, he’s telling us what none of our “best friends” in our government are saying, “that the American government may have been behind the 9/11 attack.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

The Terrorism Fraud

By Philip Giraldi, Antiwar.com, September 23, 2010

 

That’s pretty much the international terrorism story, at least insofar as it actually relates to the United States.  A few hundred malcontents and zealots, most of whom are on the run from the local authorities or hiding in caves, are more than a nuisance but they do not rise to the level of a serious threat.  Few of them can even fantasize about blowing themselves up on the New York City subway system, assuming they could get a visa and make the trip, put together a working bomb from fertilizer, and find the Lexington Avenue line.  The reader must decide if the terrorism "threat" justifies spending a trillion dollars a year while waging an unending war on multiple foreign battlefronts.

 

"Terrorism" has become the most abused word in the English language.  The fear of terrorism has driven explosive growth in the United States government, has led to two wars in the past ten years with possibly several more waiting in the wings, and has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. FULL ARTICLE=>

Feds Target Americans As Terrorists In Effort To Break Back Of Big Government Resistance

Government uses its own network of Muslim patsy handlers to sick the anti-terror apparatus on peaceful Americans

By Paul Joseph Watson, Prisonplanet.com, September 23, 2010

 

There’s little doubt that the feds are again hyping the terror that they manufacture as an election ploy to try to derail the momentum currently being enjoyed by anti-establishment candidates like Rand Paul and Sharron Angle. Just as the Bush administration issued fake terror alerts under then Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge in an attempt to sway the outcome of key votes, the Obama regime is following suit.

 

The feds are up to their old tricks once again – demonizing American citizens who are politically engaged and use the Internet as domestic terrorists in a transparent ploy to chill free speech and immobilize resistance to big government – when in actual fact every major terror plot in the United States was provocateured, contrived or directly facilitated by the federal government itself.  Council on Foreign Relations member Diane Sawyer attempts to lend the story some gravitas with her pained expression and stern words, but a 5-year-old could pick apart the propaganda.  FULL ARICLE=>

 

The Road to World War III - The Global Banking Cartel Has One Card Left to Play

Amped Status Editor: The following is Part I to David DeGraw’s new book, “The Road Through 2012: Revolution or World War III.” This is the second installment to a new seven-part series that we will be posting throughout the next few weeks. You can read the introduction to the book here. To be notified via email of new postings from this series, subscribe here.

 

Part I: Economic Imperial Operations:

When we analyze our current crisis, focusing on the past few years of economic activity blinds us to the history and context that are vital to understanding the root cause. What we have been experiencing is not the result of an unforeseen economic crash that appeared out of the blue with the collapse of the housing market. It was certainly not brought on by people who bought homes they couldn’t afford. To frame this crisis around a debate on economic theory misses the point entirely. To even blame it on greedy bankers, while essentially accurate, also misses the most vital point.  FULL ARTICLE=>

3,000-Strong and Growing: The CIA’s Army of Assassins in Afghanistan

CIA's Secret Army Larger Than Anyone Thought

By Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, September 22, 2010

 

The CIA isn’t the only one with assassination programs in Afghanistan. The Pentagon’s own assassination program was unveiled in late July as part of a massive leak of classified documents by WikiLeaks. The WikiLeaks docs revealed the Pentagon’s version had killed a number of civilians in the course of its Afghan misadventures, the CIA’s are still a mystery, however.

 

The fact that the CIA has been assembling a “secret Army” in Afghanistan has never been a particularly closely guarded secret. The fact that they are assassinating people in Afghanistan is no secret either. What is a secret, however, is just how big this group is.  Or at least it was a secret, until Bob Woodward’s book Obama’s Wars detailed it. According to Woodward the CIA’s army has some 3,000 well-trained assassins carrying out attacks not only across Afghanistan but into neighboring Pakistan as well.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

War Is Murder

By Karen Kwiatowski, LewRockwell.com, September 21, 2010

 

A spirit of brutality, righteous judgment, self-pity because we want so much to "do good" to the ungrateful, a spirit of hate, and a spirit of self-indulgence. That’s American foreign policy in a nutshell, and it’s not new. United States foreign policy is brutal. Just ask (if you can find any) native Americans who trace ancestry back to the geography of the Appalachians or the Great Plains. The great mass murderers on both sides of the War between the States in the 1860s had practiced their craft on Native Americans for years, and Mexicans too, for good measure.

 

Well, it sure is murder for our boys in desert cammy. Five of our finest are now charged with running an unauthorized hit team, targeting random Afghan civilians for a little stress-relieving target practice. What’s the problem here? The CIA has been doing this for years with its own militarized groups. The DoD is doing this with its own special forces. Xe and other contractors do this with the holy blessing of both DoD and CIA. The President and the Congress have authorized this kind of thing, separately and together. Obama even asserted that he is comfortable and righteous in his role as decider-in-chief on which American citizens may live or die.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Obama Admin Predicts Small Scale Terror... in Time for Elections, Again?

By Jason Dykes, JonesReport.com, September 21. 2010

 

9/11 was obviously a ace-card in the Bush Administration's public relations deck; the Oklahoma City Bombing bolstered Bill Clinton's image for a second term. Would the Obama Administration use an attack any differently?

 

“Terrorism" concerns necessarily hinge on fear, and it is now completely predictable that an otherwise unpopular Obama Administration would roll out the threat of terror to bolster support for the 2010 elections. The Washington Post reports that the "Risk of small-scale attacks by al-Qaeda and its allies is rising, officials say" in concert with comments from Obama about absorbing a terror attack, and hyperbolic comments by Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano before Congress that al Qaeda is recruiting for homeland attacks.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Public Opinion and the War in Afghanistan 

By Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com, September 16, 2010

Opponents of the Iraq War frequently criticized the Bush administration for continuing and then escalating that war even in the face of large majorities which opposed it, culminating in the furor that erupted when Dick Cheney, asked about war opposition, contemptuously dismissed public opinion as irrelevant with his infamously candid: "So?".

 

LC Editor’s Comment: An excellent article.  Greenwald points out that Americans will continue to either applaude the Bush-Obama wars and more or silently and passively accept the U.S. military aggession accept the as long as they continue to believe that these exercises in mass murder and attempted genocyde will not affect them personally.

 

US Debates Response to Targeted Killing Lawsuit 

By Charlie Savage, NYTimes.com, September 15, 2010

 

There is widespread agreement among the administration’s legal team that it is lawful for President Obama to authorize the killing of someone like Mr. Awlaki — regardless of his citizenship — if he is found in an ungoverned place or in a country that grants permission. (The details of any arrangement with Yemen are unclear.). Mr. Awlaki has not been indicted or gone to trial to prove that he played an operational role in terrorist attacks.

 

The Obama administration, fresh off a victory in persuading federal judges to dismiss a torture case for fear of revealing state secrets, is divided over using similar tactics to try to block a lawsuit over government efforts to kill an American citizen accused of ties to Al Qaeda.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Make Noise! It’s the Only Way to Get the War Party Politicians’ Attention

By Jason Raimondo, Antiwar.com, September 17, 2010

 

Every election season the politicians come back from Washington to ask for your vote: they come out of hiding and even hold "town hall" meetings, which you are notified of by franked mailings (paid for by you). They make public appearances in their home districts, and expose themselves to the hoi polloi: it’s a perfect set-up for confronting them with the enormity of their crimes. 

 

With the November elections looming, politics and the public policy debate are being Twiterrized, i.e. reduced to cable news buzzwords and treated like a horserace. It’s a bad time to be an antiwar activist. Foreign policy, and the vital issues of war and peace, are lost in the chatter.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  A shock and awe demonstration often produces the desired result when mere talk fails.  Many years ago when I was working as a civilian research scientist at a U.S. Army research facility, I used my own version of shock and awe to move our lab facilities director into taking immediate action to correct a serious dust and debris condition that made it impossible for me to conduct meaningful work on a ruby laser rod materials research project.

 

Six months prior he had assign me space in a laboratory located next door to a concrete research, brick manufacturing and foundry facility and immediately downwind from it.  When that facility was in operation –Monday through Friday of every week -- it would spew out concrete and brick dust and ingot casting sand from its open windows and exhaust vents. That material ended coating my optics research equipment with thin layers of grit and dust every day making it impossible to use until it cleaned meticulously immediately before use. 

 

Even though I had informed him of this situation a dozen times before, the facilities director refused to move my equipment into a clean laboratory space, claiming lack of available space meeting this requirement.  So I decided to take swift action. My solution was to gather a days worth of grit and dust, put it into a paper bag, meet him in his office one day, and then dump the contents of the bag onto his desktop. 

 

As a result of my demonstration of need, within twenty-four hours, the director had found free laboratory space, this one air conditioned, located far from the foundry, and sealed to prevent the entrance of grit and dust from the outside. Within another twenty-four hours, he had all of my lab equipment moved into that space. 

 

Instead of making more noise, I made grit and dust! That worked too. Three cheers for shock and awe in any form. The lesson: Focussed demonstrations beat endless conversations!

Scientist: There is No Observational Evidence for Influence of CO2 on Present or Past Climate

HockeyStick.blogspot.com, September 15, 2010

Dr. Ir. Noor van Andel, former head of research at Akzo Nobel, recently presented a talk at the Dutch Meteorological Institute KNMI, concluding there is no observational evidence for influence of CO2 on past or present climate.

 

Rising Outgoing Long-wave radiation with more than 3.7 W/m^2 per ºC SST cannot be the effect of rising CO2 or of the increase of other “greenhouse” gases; rising OLR/SST with 8.6 W/m^2K means that the atmosphere has become more transparent to IR radiation in the past 60 years.

 

The “greenhouse effect” has become less; and solar constant and the properties of water determine our climate.  FULL ARTICLE=>

More on 9/11 and its True Purpose

9/11 Truth and America's ‘Global War on Terrorism’: The Pretext to Wage War is Totally Fabricated

 

In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this "outside enemy" has served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the war in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a "just war" with a humanitarian mandate.  Ironically, Al Qaeda --the "outside enemy of America" and alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks is a creation of the CIA.

 

By Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca, September 14, 2010

In the wake of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, several prominent "progressive" intellectuals made a case for "retaliation against terrorism" on moral and ethical grounds.

 

The "just cause" military doctrine (jus ad bellum) used to justify the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999 was upheld at face value as a legitimate response to 9/11, without examining the fact that Washington had not only covertly supported the "Islamic terror network", it was also instrumental in the installation of the Taliban government in 1996.

 

In the wake of 9/11, the (real) antiwar movement was completely isolated. Trade unions and civil society organizations had swallowed the media lies and government propaganda. They had accepted a war of retribution against Afghanistan on humanitarian grounds, an impoverished country of 30 million people.  FULL ARTICLE=>

The Economy: Not the Rosy Picture the Government Lysters Like to Paint

Gold and Silver Explode as Banksters Abandon Market Manipulation

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, September 14, 2010

 

Market observers believe silver prices will soon rise on speculation that JP Morgan is in the process of winding down its proprietary trading operations. “In the past years, compelling evidence of silver and gold price manipulation by JP Morgan has been found,” writes Elisheva Wiriaatmadja.

 

Gold has surged to a new high as the prospect of inflation reared its ugly head in the United Kingdom on bad news from a report indicating a weaker-than-expected eurozone industrial production. Germany and France, despite sovereign debt fears, have been able to manage anemic growth but today’s data signals a slow down.

 

On Tuesday the gold price traded as high as $1,261.90 and as low as $1,246. “The U.S. dollar index was adding 0.03% to $81.90 while the euro was losing 0.19% to $1.28 vs. the dollar.

Neoconservatives: Their Demonization of Islam – Is there a Reason?

Gunning for Islam -- The Islamophobes: Fringe Wackos, or Rising Mass Movement?

Languishing for the lack of a proper enemy in the post-cold war world, the neoconservative right was saved from extinction by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The specter of militant Islam is, for them, the perfect villain, one who represents a threat not just to the US but also to Israel, a country which is to them as the old Soviet Union was to American Communists: a model and a fatherland.

Three people are dead because US "pastor" Terry Jones, in collaboration with the American media, staged (or threatened to stage) an anti-Muslim Koran-burning exhibition, which predictably stoked anti-American protests in Afghanistan: also predictably, US troops fired on demonstrators. The result: yet more "collateral damage."  FULL ARTICLE=>

By Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca, August 30, 2010

More than 60% of the World's oil and natural gas reserves lie in Muslim lands. "The Battle for Oil" waged by the US NATO Israel military alliance requires the demonization of the inhabitants of those countries which possess these vast reserves of oil and natural gas.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

The "Demonization" of Muslims and the Battle for Oil

By Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca, January 4, 2007

The "war on terrorism" purports to defend the American Homeland and protect the "civilized world". It is upheld as a "war of religion", a "clash of civilizations", when in fact the main objective of this war is to secure control and corporate ownership over the region's extensive oil wealth, while also imposing under the helm of the IMF and the World Bank (now under the leadership of Paul Wolfowitz), the privatization of State enterprises and the transfer of the countries' economic assets into the hands of foreign capital.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Obama the Neoconservative

By Sheldon Richman, Future Freedom Foundtion, September 13, 2010

President Barack Obama was far from candid when he announced the end of combat operations in Iraq last month, but he did nothing to hide the fact that he is a neoconservative when it comes to the American empire.

That was not lost on leading neoconservatives, who tend to prefer Republicans. William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, told a colleague that while he would have phrased the speech differently, “his basic response was ‘All hail Obama!’”

Ground Zero Mosque Controversy: A CIA Orchestrated Event

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, September 14, 2010

Imagine my surprise when I learned that the so-called Ground Zero mosque has connections to the CIA. Mark Ames, writing for the New York Observer, spelled out the connections on Friday. Ames notes that the “right” (neocons) portray Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf as a terrorist sympathizer with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. “But meanwhile, links between the group behind the controversial mosque, the CIA and U.S. military establishment have gone unacknowledged,” he writes.

 

Ames connects the Cordoba Initiative behind the mosque to R. Leslie Deak, a “business consultant” for Patriot Defense Group, apparently a CIA front company. One of the company’s “strategic advisers” is a former deputy director for operations at the CIA who “managed the CIA’s globally deployed personnel and nearly half of its multi-billion dollar budget” and “served as head of America’s Clandestine Service, the CIA’s operational response to the attacks of September 11, 2001.” Other consultants include a former four-star general who commanded the U.S. Special Operations Command and its effort in the manufactured Global War On Terrorism. The trio is complete with the presence of a banker.  FULL ARTICLE=> 

 

Saving America – Leo Strauss and the Neoconservatives

By Shadia B. Drury, Evatt Foundation, 2006

There is a growing awareness that a reclusive German emegre is the inspiration behind the reigning neoconservative ideology behind the Republican Party.  Leo Strauss has long been a cult figure within the North American academy.  And though he had a profound antipathy to both liberalism and democracy, his disciples have gone to great length to conceal the fact.  And for the most part they have succeeded – as the article by James Atlas in the New York Times and the article by Seymour Hersh indicate.  This picture of Stauss as a great American patriot, who was a lover of freedom and democracy is pure fabrication.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

The trouble with Straussians is that they are compulsive liars.  But it is not altogether their fault.  Strauss was very pre-occupied with secrecy because he was convinced that the truth is too harsh for any society to bear; and that the truth-bearers are likely to be persecuted by society – especially a liberal society – because liberal democracy is about as far as one can get from the truth as Stauss saw it. 

 

Strauss’s disciples have inherited a superiority complex as well as a persecution complex.  They are convinced that they are the superior few who know the truth and are entitled to rule. But they are afraid to speak the truth openly lest they be persecuted by the vulgar many who do not wish to be ruled by them.  This explains why they are eagar to misrepresent Strauss’s thought.  They are afraid to reveal that Strauss was a critic of liberalism and democracy, lest he be regarded as an enemy of America.  So, the wrap him in an American flag and pretend that he is a champion of lliberal democracy for political reasons – their own quest for power.  The result is they run roughshod over truth as well as democracy.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comments: Strauss was an elitist and neoconservatism does come off as being an elitist clan of sorts.  As to credo, Straussians believe that ordinary people are incapable of making wise decisions for themselves consistently and so need gifted leaders to do this for them.

When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. - Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr., creator of Sherlock ... all » Holmes If it's important to you to believe that Western society is structured such that "good" always triumphs - at least in 'big' matters, that Kojak always 'gets the bad guy', and that the evildoers are a small minority of bad eggs eagerly exposed by the valiant press, this a critical principle to keep in mind.

 

911 Mysteries demolishes the 'official' 911 conspiracy theory more graphically than any movie previously released.

Senator says Obama, Congress ‘Intentionally’ Spending to Force Value-Added Tax Implementation

By Jeff Poor, Business & Media Institute, September 10, 2010

We’ve heard from various elements that President Barack Obama was a socialist trying to “fundamentally change” the United States of America in a covert manner, but maybe it isn’t as covert as it seems.

 

A recent CNS News analysis of government data shows that in the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion - more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan. So why is the government doing this? Larry Kudlow asked Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., that question on his Sept. 9 program, suggesting it was a “giant massive tax trap.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program

By Matt Cover, CNS News, September 13, 2010

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.

 

The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Press Conference of Sept. 8, 2010  Video

By Richard Gage, AIA, Architect, Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth, September 8, 2010

This press conference and debate was held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on 9/8/10 by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.  Their web site is AE911Truth.org

Over 1200 architects and engineers endorse a new independent investigation into how the 3 buildings collapsed at near free fall speed on 9/11/01: the Twin Towers (world trade center 1 and 2) and world trade center Building 7.

Former U.S. Senator from Alaska Mike Gravel noted that "critically important evidence has come forward after the original government building reports were completed." He states that a new commission should be granted subpoena power and full access to all governmental files and personnel.  CLICK ON LINK ABOVE TO START VIDEO STREAM=>

 

LC Editor’s Comments: This is a video recording of Richard Gage on September 8 delivering the press release referred to in the PRNewswire story published on September 7.  In that PRN news story states that Richard Gage will host a press conference at the NPC in D.C. on September 9, not September 8.  Either the video information above is misdated or the PRN story gives the wrong date for the news conference.  Or perhaps there is another explanation for the disparity in the NPC press conference date for Washington.

The Anniversary of 9/11

Washington’s Blog, September 10, 2010

Don’t want to hear this?  Tough!  Grow up!

What 9/11 Commissioners Now say About the their own Final Report:

 

• The 9/11 Commission’s co-chairs said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements  free subscription required).

 

• 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, and that the 9/11 debate should continue.

 

• 9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting”

 

• 9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .” He also said that the investigation depended too heavily on the accounts of Al Qaeda detainees who were physically coerced into talking.

 

• And the Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) – who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry – recently said “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened”. He also said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.” And he said: “It’s almost a culture of concealment, for lack of a better word. There were interviews made at the FAA’s New York center the night of 9/11 and those tapes were destroyed. The CIA tapes of the interrogations were destroyed. The story of 9/11 itself, to put it mildly, was distorted and was completely different from the way things happened.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

Loose Change 2nd Edition  Full Length Video

By Dylan Avery, Corey Rowe, and Jason Bermas – 2006

Here’s a stunning documentary film. It’s the now classic 9/11 flick millions of viewers of the original DVD say woke them up to the truth that the Bush administration’s narrative of 9/11 failed to pass the “smell test”.  Although produced over four years ago its message is still accurate and its facts still unchallenged. 

 

Narrated in Detective Sargent Friday – lead character of the 1960s Dragnet TV cop series – in deadpan style by co-producer Dylan Avery, with his voice set against mood-setting music that will cause chills to run up and down your spine as you listen and get drawn into the drama of the current “day that will live in infamy”, the film is nevertheless long on documentation, its producers – sticklers for accuracy and objectivity -- having chosen to let the facts speak for themselves.

 

Never preachy, never pushing one position or another, Dylan simply asks questions and points out apparent inconsistencies between the government’s narratives of the World Trade Center building collapses, the crash at Washington’s supersecret Pentagon building and the reported crash of a hijacked airliner in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.  Between presenting he question his pauses his speech to allow the viewer draw his own conclusions.

Explosives Found in World Trade Center Dust

Jim Hoffman, 911research.wtc7.net, December 7, 2009

The scientific paper Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe conclusively shows the presence of unignited aluminothermic explosives in dust samples from the Twin Towers, whose chemical signature matches previously documented aluminothermic residues found in the same dust samples.

 

The present review of the paper and related research is intended to summarize those findings for the non-technical reader. To that end, I first provide a short introduction to the subject of aluminothermic explosives, then outline the methods and results of analysis of the dust samples, and finally explore the significance of these findings.  FULL ARTICLES=>

Claims of Recovery But Results Nowhere To Be Found

By Bob Chapman, TheInternationalForecaster.com, September 8, 2010

 

Bailing out the financial system hasn’t worked. The loans and special deals have only covered up the crimes these corporations were involved in and allowed them to escape bankruptcy, which they so richly deserve. There is no other way to describe what has transpired in the financial community than welfare for the mega rich. What is worse is that they go right on looting the public as if nothing has happened.

 

The American public is alarmed at what they see going on.

 

Most of them do not understand what has been done to them. The propaganda fed to them daily has them completely confused and that is understandable. They know the financial sector has been bailed out and they somehow have to pay the bill. They have been deceived and few of them want to admit it. They have been told their economy is in recovery, but improvement is nowhere to be found. Government tells them inflation is 1.6% when they know it’s certainly higher than that and has been for some time.

 

The only beacon of light, if they can discover it, is the truth of talk radio and the Internet. Through these methods of communication the truth can be found and it is reaching all around the world.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comments:  Bob publishes a twice-a-week subscription newsletter in addition to publishing articles like this one at alternative news and financial websites. He is also a regular guest on many, many well-established straight and financial radio programs that air on the web and over conventional radio broadcasting station.

Clinton to CFR: ‘New American Moment’ Has Arrived

By Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, September 8, 2010

 

Clinton’s comments on Iran over her 20 months in power have varied wildly, including demands that Iran prove it isn’t making nuclear weapons, proclamations that Iran could never prove that it isn’t making nuclear weapons, and threats to launch an attack on them. She has also openly said that the diplomacy toward Iran was never meant to work, but was aimed at convincing the world to accept more sanctions against them.

 

Speaking today before the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a dramatic proclamation that a “new American moment” has arrived and that the State Department will be asserting America’s “global leadership” in a number of new ways.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comments: Global leadership??? Leadership in what?  How to bankrupt a once thriving economy, a prosperous nation (the U.S.), by (1) fostering transfer of virtually all America’s once renown manufacturing capability to Third World nations, where labor is dirt cheap, by providing tax incentives to U.S. based corporations, (2) initiating and continuing the fighting of illegal, enormously expensive ($12 billion/month) wars against the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, and (3) allowing Wall Street an the Federal Reserve to run and weaken the American economy by design and then conning the American people into bailing out Wall Street companies and the banks when they threatened to go bust?

 

Global leadership?  On violating international law by condoning and fostering torture of persons the White House has chosen to call “unlawful combatants” for the purposed of circumventing this law, which states that torture is illegal, a criminal activity?”

 

Global leadership?  In showing how a first rate military power – the U.S. – can successfully, illegally invade two countries that have third rate ground fighting capacities, no air force and no navy, kill over a million civilians, lay waste to the land and vital infrastructure, including power, water and sanitation, claiming falsely that these countries are aggressor nations and had to be stopped or they would have attacked the U.S. homeland?

 

Global leadership?  In transforming the once “Land of the free and home of the Brave”, virtually locked down police state, in which citizens are under surveillance 24/7, the intimate features of air travelers bodies are subject to visual examination using X-ray technology before they are allowed to board their flights, and adults, children and babies are electrically shocked by police using Tasers --- as if they were cattle --- to force them to comply with the cops’ demands, no matter unreasonable?

 

Global leadership? In successfully withholding information and lying to the people and members of Congress time and time again about nearly everything, including the state of the economy, the level of unemployment, and the deployment of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq and now Pakistan?

 

Global leadership, of course!  The U.S. can now claim global leadership! My fellow Americans: Aren’t you proud of and thankful for America’s leadership of the international community of nations?

 

UN Blueprint: Dismantle Middle Class, Build World Government

By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, September 9, 2010

 

The blueprint makes it clear that the UN intends to reassert its role as the instigator and leader of a one world government, and will set about to achieve this by bypassing nation states and thwarting national sovereignty.

 

A UN blueprint for putting the organization back at the forefront of global governance alarmingly reveals the agenda to re-brand global warming as “overpopulation” as a means of dismantling the middle classes while using “global redistribution of wealth” and increased immigration to reinvigorate the pursuit of a one world government.

 

United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and 60 of his top lieutenants met this past Labor Day at a secluded Austrian Alpine retreat in a bid to get the global warming agenda back on track after the dismal failure of Copenhagen.

 

The planning paper that was handed out to delegates at the conference was subsequently leaked to Fox News, and outlines a strategy of exalting “global redistribution of wealth” as the basis of the climate change agenda.

 

A Modest Proposal

By Philip Giraldi, Antiwar.com, September 9, 2010

 

Some measure to actually make the people who want war take the risks and pay the bills is long overdue.  My bet is that if we were to make war more personally painful the percentage of the public calling for attacks on Iran, Yemen, and Somalia to expand the ongoing splendid adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan would drop to single digits.

 

The Founding Fathers were in no way ambiguous about armies and warfare.  One of their objections to the policies of King George III expressed in the Declaration of Independence was that "He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislators." 

 

Another grievance was that he had employed mercenary soldiers against the citizens of the thirteen colonies.  The Founders distrusted standing armies because those forces could be used to overawe the citizenry and to support autocratic rule.  They were particularly aggrieved by the ability of a king to use those armies without any restraint to engage in what today might be called "wars of choice." 

 

The Declaration of Independence cites King George’s using his forces in a de facto declaration of war against his own subjects in America to include incitement of Indian tribes to attack and massacre those living in frontier areas.  FULL ARTICLE=>

50 Mind Blowing Facts About America That Our Founding Fathers Never Would Have Believed

The Economic Collapse, September 8, 2010

 

Needless to say, our founders would certainly not understand many of our institutions or many of the advanced technologies that we have today.  But without a doubt they would be able to grasp how far we have fallen as a nation and how far we have strayed from the fundamental principles that they enshrined in our founding documents.  The United States is a much different place today than it was in 1776, and unfortunately many of the changes have been for the worse.

 

If our Founding Fathers were alive today, what would they think of America?  Surely they would be very proud that the United States stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific and has built some of the most amazing cities that the world has ever seen.  They would probably be surprised that the country they founded went on to become the greatest economic machine in the history of the world, and they would be absolutely astounded by things like our interstate highway system and the Internet. 

 

However, there are quite a number of things that they would be horrified about as well.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Citing Obama’s State Secrets Privilege, Court Tosses Torture Case

By David Kraveta, Wired.com, September 8, 2010

Citing the Obama administration’s evocation of the state secrets privilege, a divided federal appeals court agreed Wednesday to toss a lawsuit against a Boeing subsidiary accused of helping the CIA transport detainees to secret foreign prisons where they allegedly were tortured.

 

Ruling 6-5, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it was bound by a 1953 Supreme Court precedent requiring judges to dismiss cases if litigating them could expose government secrets and imperil national security.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Read “could expose government secrets” as “could expose for all the world to see U.S. government officials’ failures, their lying to the American people and Congress, their misfeasance and malfeasence, their grossly illegal and unconstitutional past and current activity and their plan to continue breaking the law and violating the Constitution.”

Gender Bender Chemical Atrazine Widely Contaminates US Public Water Supply

By David Gutierrez, Natural News, September 7, 2010

 

Even the EPA's "safe" level of 3 ppb, however, may be far too high; studies suggest that atrazine is biologically active in levels as low as 0.1 ppb, mimicking the action of hormones in the body. A recent meta-analysis of 125 studies by researchers from the University of South Florida found that the chemical causes developmental and reproductive defects in amphibians and fish. Another study, conducted by University of California-Berkeley researchers and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that small amounts of atrazine lowered testosterone levels and fertility in male frogs. Many of the frogs were chemically castrated or even turned into females.

 

Emerging research increasingly indicates that the U.S. water supply is widely contaminated with the endocrine disrupting chemical atrazine, but that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking almost no action on the threat.

Atrazine is an herbicide widely sprayed on corn fields in the Midwest, and one of the most widely detected groundwater contaminants in the country. According to an analysis of state and federal records by the Chicago Tribune, atrazine has been detected in the
drinking water of a million people in 60 Illinois communities over the past four years. Yet the EPA requires testing for the chemical only four times a year, meaning that short-term spikes of the toxin go undetected -- and unregulated.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Dangerous Economic Misconceptions

By Giordano Bruno, NeithercorpPress, September 7, 2010

 

Today, we face a far more dangerous scenario than the Great Depression ever was, but the strategy of skewed statistics and denial by the elites has remained pretty much unchanged. Unsupported talk of recovery fumes from every word and every pore of the establishment media, and the investment community to some extent has even been convinced that if they “wish” for recovery hard enough, if they think happy thoughts, it will materialize, all without any effort, any sacrifice, any suffering, like magic. Unfortunately, fairy dust and fiat alone are not going to undo the slowly accumulated damage that our economy has sustained for the past several decades.

 

For many years, economics in the U.S. has been approached with a ‘game show’ mentality. Wild and backwards speculations on financial growth have become the norm. The daily ‘Wall Street Journal’ and ‘Washington Post’ musings of international bankers and their servile lackeys are treated as divination, rather than the bamboozle they actually signify.

 

If you play along and contribute to the mechanics of the great casino, then you are treated as a “serious” economist or analyst, regardless of how many times your advice has been completely off the mark, or how many middle-class nest eggs you destroyed in the process.

 

If you question the conclusions of the pundits and talking heads, or, God forbid, question the validity of the system itself, you are immediately marginalized as a “kook” or “conspiracy theorist”. The workings of the mainstream financial world are more inbred than Hollywood and Washington D.C. combined.  FULL ARTICLE=>

FBI Warns of Possible Terrorist Response to “Burn Koran Day”

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, September 6, 2010

 

In the highly charged atmosphere following the so-called Ground Zero Mosque incident, any violence in Florida or elsewhere in the United States will certainly feed the government propaganda machine that incessantly cranks out warnings of Islamic terror. If terror occurs this week, it will certainly be exploited by the corporate media and the government to further the bogus war on terror, bulwark imperial designs in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan, and provide impetus to finish the police state control grid in America.

 

Infowars.com has received a leaked copy of an internal FBI memo warning of a possible terrorist response to “International Burn A Koran Day,” an event scheduled for the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attack to be held by the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida.  Infowars.com contacted the FBI field office in Jacksonville, Florida, listed on the bulletin and was told the agency does not comment on investigations.

Obama Calling for more Infrastructure Spending

By Julie Pace, AP News, September 6, 2010

Vowing to find new ways to stimulate the sputtering economy, President Barack Obama will call for long-term investments in the nation's roads, railways and runways that would cost at least $50 billion.

 

The infrastructure investments are one part of a package of targeted proposals the White House is expected to announce in hopes of jump-starting the economy ahead of the November election. Obama will outline the infrastructure proposal Monday at a Labor Day event in Milwaukee.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Forget it!  President Barry Soetoro (a.k.a. Barack Obama), just as countless U.S. Presidents before he arrived on the scene, is playing Three Card Monte again with American people.  His proposed projects in today’s dollars would cost $50 billion.  Conservatively that’s about what it costs to fight the U.S. wars of aggression in Afghanistan, Iraq and now Pakistan for at most four months based on a combined expenditure of $12 billion per month for the first two of these countries.  Where’s President Seotoro going to find the extra $50 billion for his “recovery” project?  Well, why not just bring the troops home now? No, not next month --- Now!  Problem solved! 

 

Buy there is another problem with his proposal.  This is going to be a long-term project as are all government construction projects.  By the time contractor are selected by bid, contractual issues are handled and even preliminary construction plans are produced, five years will have passed by.  Construction will not get underway for another five to ten years.  That’s right!  So does his proposal solve anything?  About the only project money to be spent will be spent on graft.

 

Will Obama bring American’s modern-day crusade warriors back from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan --- even if he could get the logistics set up within a few weeks?  Heck no!  I’m sure he prefers wearing his Gucci, $3,000 shoes to wearing cement shoes.  Remember when JFK created an Executive Order that would initiate the immediate withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam and Cambodia?  Remember what happened soon after that!  He was assassinated!  Vietnam and Cambodia were protect-the-drugs, protect-the-Rockefeller-oil and make-a-lot-of-armaments cash cows for bankers and politicians.  Can’t have that!  No! No!  Does Barry want to be whacked?  I think not. 

 

Indeed, as we already know that the White House is pulling out some American soldiers, the G.I. grunts, out of Iraq but replacing them with contract private mercenary soldiers, who get paid twenty times more that GI’s do each month!  Those contracting companies must love Barry!

 

So what’s left as a source for the $50 billion? Charge it! Borrow it from the Federal Reserve, the private banking cartel that, in effect, runs D.C.  The Fed will --- just as it always does – create it using the Mandrake (the Magician) Method, which is to say “out of thin air”. Who’s going to buy that commercial paper so created?  Well, the U.S. used to be able to get foreign companies to buy the debt but the buyers have chosen instead to invest in the paper of countries they believe will not go belly up within the next few years.  That’s not surprising since they've been badly burned by the U.S. as the dollar started to slowly sink into the commode a dozen years ago. 

 

So what’s to be done about paying the debt service covering the paper foreign nations carry and the Fed carries?  Monitize the debt!  That is, use what the Weimar Republic (Germany, 1920s) did and what Zimbabwe has done and is now doing: Just print more (counterfeit, in effect) money and pass it off to creditors as if it had any value at all!  Whoopee!  Pull that trick and because it will reduced the buying power of the dollar – and do it quickly – and 4-pound roasting chickens, which are priced at about $4 each now may end up costing us $40 each a year from now and $400 each two years from now! 

 

Wake up and smell the stench, folks.  Then pick a nice highway overpass bridge to live under wheb you get evicted from your home and a garbage dumpster to feed from for the next ten to twenty years. America’s coming down, and you can bet that Barry and the bankers, nor Bush, Sr., and Bush, Jr., nor Bill and Hillary will shed a single tear because of it.

 

Can this travesty be avoided? No, not for Joe Six-Pack and Susan Socker mom, probably not.  You see, they just keep on believing government lies like “This is just a litter downer in the American economy and everything will start getting better soon – as soon as the Presidents new $50 billion work projects administration (that’s what FDR called it) kicks in.”  Susan and Joe will keep believing that lie until they drop dead by freezing as they try to keep warm under an overpass bridge in north Montana on January a few months or a few years from now. 

 

But many, many people will survive and thrive thought out this economic depression.  Let’s email or IM text about it.  Email me at ron@libertycalling.com and type the words FREEDOM TRAIN in caps in the subject line.  That will start our communicating with each other and, at least for now, it will not be accomplished using an auto responder…You’ll be getting Ron Larsen live!  

 

Work Until You’re Dead? That May Be the Only Option for Many Americans

By Jane White, Huffington Post, September 6, 2010

Many Americans are likely to have to work until they are dead, not as a result of Social Security shortfalls but because of their inadequate 401(k) savings or the fact that they have no retirement plan at all. This disaster has not dawned on the mutual fund companies that manage retirement assets, much less debated on Capitol Hill. Given that the first wave of Boomers is scheduled to turn 65 in 2011, Attention Must be Paid.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Working for “the man”, which could very well amount to working for Homeland Security, serving for the rest of their lives as East German Stasi-like neighborhood, could be the fate of literally tens of millions Americans. 

These are good, hard-working citizens who have all of their lives been content with working for someone or some company rather than working for themselves doing something they enjoy doing and building their own retirement nestegg they rather than a Wall Street investment firm manages and which could ultimately be snatched by Washington to fund it’s rapidly emptying piggy bank 

 

If you’d like to learn about a better way to live your life and create the retirement income you need starting now even if you are already retired, please send me an email with the words FREEDOM TRAIN typed in caps in the subject line.  Address it to ron@libertycalling.com.  I’ll get back to you with a few ideas you may not have considered before and it won’t cost you a nickel. 

 

Analysis: Taser-Related Deaths in US Accelerating

By Daniel Tenser, Raw Story, September 5, 2010

The rate of deaths in Taser-related incidents is rising as police forces increasingly adapt the conducted energy weapons, a Raw Story analysis finds. A 2008 report (PDF) from Amnesty International found 351 Taser-related deaths in the US between June, 2001 and August, 2008, a rate of just slightly above four deaths per month. A database of Taser-related deaths maintained at the African-American issues blog Electronic Village counts 96 deaths related to the use of Tasers since January, 2009.

 

Assuming the statistics are correct, that indicates the death rate has increased to an average of five per month.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Fox News Poll: Fox News Poll: Americans Say Iraq War Worth It

By Ernie Paicopolos, Fox News, September 3, 2010

Despite its contentious history, most American voters appear to have made a positive judgment about the country's efforts in Iraq. Almost six in 10 (58 percent) voters think, overall, the United States "did the right thing" by going to war, according to the latest Fox News poll.  

 

A little over one-third of voters (35 percent) take the opposite view -- that the U.S. "did the wrong thing" by becoming involved militarily in Iraq. From a partisan perspective, there is still division -- as 54 percent of Democrats think the U.S. did the wrong thing in Iraq, while only 14 percent of Republicans feel the same way. A slim majority of independents (52 percent) think the U.S. did the right thing in Iraq.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment: What a blessing it must be for the White House, Congress and the war arms industry along with the banking consortium that finances it to be assured through the results of this Fox News poll that Tony Six-Pack and Susan Soccer Mom – that is, most Americans -- continue to be “asleep at the wheel”, uninformed, dumb and gullible and easily conned by the propaganda machines of America’s military-industrial-banking-media complex. Read Maj. Gen. Smedley Darlington Butler’s War is a Racket for clarification.

 

They Caused the Iraq War and Remain without Shame

By James Zogby, The Nation, September 4, 2010

During the past week, as the US president Barack Obama announced the withdrawal of US combat forces from Iraq, there was considerable media commentary focusing on the lies that had been utilised to build public support for the war.

The two that received the most attention were the argument that Saddam had an active programme to develop weapons of mass destruction and the assertion, made most vigorously by the then vice president Dick Cheney, that there were “proven links” connecting the Iraqi leadership to the terrorist attacks on September 11.

 

Both were, of course, deliberate fabrications but both did play important roles in shaping public opinion and justifying the invasion of Iraq. The propaganda effort to win support for the war involved much more.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Come Home America

By Justin Raimondo, Antiwar.com, September 3, 2010

If we don’t bail out the Kabul Bank – the notoriously corrupt institution run by Mahmoud Karzai, brother of the Afghan "president," which has handed out millions in "loans" to Karzai’s cronies – will the terrorists have won? Well, yes, according to Mahmoud, who demands that America "do something," i.e. hand over lots of cash. 

 

Khalil Frozi, another Karzai crony, and one of the two largest shareholders, said a "revolution" would occur unless the US Treasury department acted to guarantee that "everyone gets their money."   Hey, a revolution might not be such a bad idea, as far as Afghanistan is concerned: with the Karzai government swept away, that would at least take care of half the nation’s problems.

The Reckless Mess Created by The Fed

By Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster, September 6, 2010

Almost two years ago the US Treasury was selling large amounts of short-term Treasury bills to fund bailouts and stimulus. That caused a major increase in debt. Most of that paper was 2-year bills and it is coming due for rollover shortly. While that transpires, October will report the annual fiscal deficit of 9/30/10 of about $1.5 trillion, a figure thought impossible just 1-1/2 to 2 years ago.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 9/11 and Related Afghanistan and Iraq Wars

America's Holy Crusade Against the Muslim World

By Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca, August 30, 2010

 

More than 60% of the World's oil and natural gas reserves lie in Muslim lands. "The Battle for Oil" waged by the US NATO Israel military alliance requires the demonization of the inhabitants of those countries which possess these vast reserves of oil and natural gas.

 

We have reached a decisive transition in the evolution of US military doctrine. The "Global War on Terrorism" (GWOT) directed against Al Qaeda launched in the wake of 9/11 is evolving towards a full-fledged "war of religion", a "holy crusade" directed against the Muslim World.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

The "Demonization" of Muslims and the Battle for Oil

By Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca, January 4, 2007

 

The "war on terrorism" purports to defend the American Homeland and protect the "civilized world". It is upheld as a "war of religion", a "clash of civilizations", when in fact the main objective of this war is to secure control and corporate ownership over the region's extensive oil wealth, while also imposing under the helm of the IMF and the World Bank (now under the leadership of Paul Wolfowitz), the privatization of State enterprises and the transfer of the countries' economic assets into the hands of foreign capital.

 

Throughout history, "wars of religion" have served to obscure the economic and strategic interests behind the conquest and invasion of foreign lands. "Wars of religion" were invariably fought with a view to securing control over trading routes and natural resources. 

 

The Crusades extending from the 11th to the 14th Century are often presented by historians as  "a continuous series of military-religious expeditions made by European Christians in the hope of wresting the Holy Land from the infidel Turks." The objective of the Crusades, however, had little to do with religion. The Crusades largely consisted, through military action, in challenging the dominion of the Muslim merchant societies, which controlled the Eastern trade routes.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

‘Al-Qaeda is a U.S.-sponsored Intelligence Asset used to Justify War in the Middle East: Interview of Michel Chossudovsky

Global Research.ca and Bulatlat.com (Philippines), July 20, 2006

 

“I’ve focussed on 9/11 from a broad geopolitical perspective,  because essentially 9/11 is still the core event which justifies the so-called "war on terrorism". Without 9/11, there is no war pretext. An that is why 9/11 is a very important landmark. It is used extensively by the Bush administration to attempt to demonstrate that America is under attack, that the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq  are acts of self-defense. And consequently, the US must carry out a humanitarian mandate which consists in waging a global war against the terrorists, as well as against the so-called state sponsors of terrorism, including Iraq and Afghanistan.” – Professor Chossudovsky

 

Michel Chossudovsky is the author of the international bestseller America’s War on Terrorism, made locally available by IBON Books. An economics professor at the University of Ottawa in Canada, he personally graced the jam-packed local launch of his latest book held at the Asian Center at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City last June 24. During the launch, he gave a lecture about the imminent danger of a U.S.-made nuclear catastrophe amid the Bush administration’s preparations for war with Iran.  FULL INTERVIEW=>

 

Building 7 Implosion: The Smoking Gun of 9/11  Includes VIDEO!

Richard Gage, AIA, Gregg Roberts, and David Chandler, Infowars.com, September 3, 2010

Shortly after the explosive destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers, a third high-rise building was destroyed. It wasn’t hit by an airplane. The characteristic signs of controlled demolition were everywhere.

 

Although it received little media attention at the time, the third-worst structural building failure in modern history occurred on September 11, 2001. World Trade Center (WTC) Building 7 was a 47-story, steel-framed, fire-protected, high-rise office building located about a football field’s length from the WTC North Tower. Unlike its two taller cousins, WTC 7 was never hit by an aircraft, yet it fell to the ground suddenly, displaying the classic signatures of explosive controlled demolition.

 

A careful examination of this evidence shows why more than 1,200 architects and engineers are demanding a new and open investigation into all the crimes of 9/11, starting with this aspect, which is most obviously inconsistent with the official account. The evidence discussed in this article was ignored, mishandled, and/or covered up by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the federal agency last tasked with explaining the unprecedented destruction of the World Trade Center high-rises.   FULL VIDEO AND TEXT=>

Tyranny in the American Homeland

Speech Defect: Emissions of Evil From the Oval Office

By Chris Floyd, Empire Burlesque.com, September 4, 2010

On Tuesday night, Barack Obama gave a speech from the Oval Office on Iraq that was almost as full of hideous, murderous lies as the speech on Iraq his predecessor gave in the same location more than seven years ago.

After mendaciously declaring an "end to the combat mission in Iraq" -- where almost 50,000 regular troops and a similar number of mercenaries still remain, carrying out the same missions they have been doing for years -- Obama delivered what was perhaps the most egregious, bitterly painful lie of the night:

 

"Through this remarkable chapter in the history of the United States and Iraq, we have met our responsibility."

Obama's US Assassination Program? "A Shortlist of U.S. Citizens specifically Targeted for Killing"?

By Chuck Norris, Global Research.ca, August 26, 2010 – Part I of a Two Part Series

Sound too conspiratorial to be true? Like the cover-up ops of spy novels? Well, it's reality. And it is possibly the most bizarre, inhumane and abusive way that the White House is expanding its power over the American people.

It's not an extremist belief or theory of the far right. It's a fact that has been confirmed by The New York Times, The Washington Post and MSNBC and even documented by the far-left online magazine Salon.com.

And it's the gravest nightmare of U.S. citizens and abandonment of our Constitution to date: a presidential assassination program in which U.S. citizens are in the literal scopes of the executive branch based upon nothing more than allegations of terrorism involvement as the branch defines it.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Targeting American Citizens: CIA Takes Global Murder Policy to Next Level

By Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com, September 5, 2010

The father of the new Osama bin Laden, Nasser al-Awlaki, has initiated a lawsuit to prevent “extrajudicial killings” of his son and other officially designated enemies. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights were retained by the elder al-Awlaki.

 

In April, Obama targeted U.S.-born Anwar al-Awlaki, who is described as the clerical leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The cleric stands accused of contacting the suspect in the November shooting rampage in Fort Hood, Texas, and the alleged underwear bomber. Anwar al-Awlaki was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

 

Awlaki and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have provided the U.S. government with a custom-made excuse to expand the bogus war against terror into Yemen and ultimately Africa.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

"The CIA Hit List": Muslim Men to be Murdered as "Threats to the US"

By J. B. Gerald, GlobalResearch.ca, September 5, 2010

"The CIA Hit List" is a media term for selected Muslim men to be murdered as threats to the United States. As President, Bush used the phrase for his list of "terrorist" suspects when the policy was first made public mid-December 2002. Names on the “hit list” surface, then recede so it is hard to be sure who is current. (1)

 

The Bush announcement, aware of prohibitions against assassinations in the executive orders of former presidents, designated the suspects as "enemy combatants" to avoid a direct confrontation with the laws of war (LOW) aka laws of armed conflicts (LOAC), which are binding on the U.S.(2).

 

Assassination of anyone is expressly forbidden in the Laws of War (Law of Land Warfare, Section 2, #31). Because this addresses State policies so clearly, both Presidents Ford and Reagan issued executive orders forbidding assassination. President Reagan's Executive Order 12333 (Dec. 4, 1981) states: “Prohibition on Assassination. No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination” (Section 2.11). "Indirect participation is forbidden as well"(Section 2.12).(7) An attempt to counter the Executive order was proposed through legislation ( H.R. 19: Terrorist Elimination Act of 2001) which failed and again in 2003 which failed. This order remains in effect.   FULL ARTICLE=>

 

LC Editor’s Comment:  Haven’t you wondered at times where the Mafia and Cosa Nostra, the gangs that ruled the U.S. cities from the 1920s thorugh the 1980s, have gone?  Gone with them too for the mostpart are gangland style kidnappings, beatings and assassinations. That’s just the kind of activity (extra-ordinary rendition [a.k.a kidnapping], assassinations, torture) our government has engaged in for the past decade as a cornerstone for the war on terror.

 

Vaccinate the World: Gates, Rockefeller Seek Global Population Reduction

By Daniel Taylor, Old-Thinker News, September 4, 2010

 

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”- Bill Gates

 

The global elite has launched a world-wide operation against an unaware population to reduce and control fertility. Vaccines and even staple food crops have been modified to achieve these goals.

 

If you can’t seem to bring yourself to believe that such an undertaking is possible, or that there are human beings willing and capable; Look back in time, this kind of conspiracy isn’t new, in fact this kind of control was idealized by Plato some 2,300 years ago in his momentous work The Republic. Plato wrote that a ruling elite should guide society, “…whose aim will be to preserve the average of population.” He further stated, “There are many other things which they will have to consider, such as the effects of wars and diseases and any similar agencies, in order as far as this is possible to prevent the State from becoming either too large or too small.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

Why Americans Elect Awful Presidents

For years I muttered mentally to myself about the insanity of Americans electing George W. Bush president.  Now I go through the same agony about the craziness of the nation electing Barack Obama president.  As much as I thought Bush was a manipulated second-rate politician that carried out the terribly destructive policies pushed by Cheney and other conservative corporate shills, now I feel equally angry that so many voters fell for the slick rhetoric and lies of Obama.  Disgust produces public thirst for change and Obama was wickedly brilliant at selling change.  When voters are so easily victimized what does democracy amount to?  FULL ARTICLE=>

To date, $1.09 trillion dollars have been allocated to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The national, state, and local numbers we provide are based on the total approved amounts through the end of Fiscal Year 2010 including the FY10 supplemental.

 

These appropriations do not include requested funds for FY2011. When Congress completes their budget process in the Fall, we will adjust the counters with new amounts that will count to the end of FY2011.

 

If you should compare the amount displayed on the numbers in our information sheets with the Cost of War counter, please note that the information sheets include all war spending approved to date, the same number that the counter will reach at the end of the 2010 fiscal year.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

The True Cost of the War

By Paul Craig Roberts, Infowars.com, September 3, 2010

Obama’s “end of Iraq war” speech must have shattered any remaining belief in him. Forced to appease both his supporters and the warmonger right-wing, who denounce him as a Muslim and a Marxist, Obama resorted to Orwellian DoubleSpeak. He could only announce an end to the war by praising the president who started it and the troops who fought it. Yet, as most earthlings, if not Americans, surely know by now, the war was based on a lie and on intentional deception. The American troops died for a lie.  FULL ARTICLE=>

The State and Local Bases of Zionist Power in America

By Prof James Petras, Dissident Voice, September 1, 2010

Any serious effort to understand the extraordinary influence of the Zionist power configuration over US foreign policy must examine the presence of key operatives in strategic positions in the government and the activities of local Zionist organizations affiliated with mainstream Jewish organizations and religious orders.

 

There are at least 52 major American Jewish organizations actively engaged in promoting Israel’s foreign policy, economic and technological agenda in the US (see the appendix). The grassroots membership ranges from several hundred thousand militants in the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to one hundred thousand wealthy contributors, activists and power brokers in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

The Israel Lobby

By John Mearshimer and Stephen Walt, London Review of Books, March 23, 2006

For the past several decades, and especially since the Six-Day War in 1967, the centrepiece of US Middle Eastern policy has been its relationship with Israel. The combination of unwavering support for Israel and the related effort to spread ‘democracy’ throughout the region has inflamed Arab and Islamic opinion and jeopardised not only US security but that of much of the rest of the world.

 

This situation has no equal in American political history. Why has the US been willing to set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of another state?

 

One might assume that the bond between the two countries was based on shared strategic interests or compelling moral imperatives, but neither explanation can account for the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the US provides.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Spike Lee gives America its Voice

By Jerry Mazza, Online Journal, September 1, 2010

I’m talking about Lee’s new two, two-hour episodes that make up his new HBO documentary If God is willin and the creek don’t rise, shot five years after Katrina, which hit on August 29, 2005. Lee’s previous four-part HBO series When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts, covered the trials and traumas of New Orleans during the storm and after and won a Peabody Award and three Emmys.

 

I say Lee Gives America its voice because he gives the still-ailing New Orleans the opportunity for its people to speak on the myriad issues that face them, which also face America. First on the BP oil disaster, on the destruction of the fishing industry, whose catch comprises 40 percent of America’s fish supply; on the oil-coated waters, whose offshore drilling comprises 20 percent of America’s natural gas and oil; and of course, on the dead sea life, the blighted marshlands, the soiled fowl, the scarred beaches; and on the lie that a well that is capped for one day can make 75 percent of the pollution gone the next; and on the voice that describes the explosion of the wellhead like a bag of fire incinerating its victims, the voices of a one-armed survivor and a two-fisted reporter.  FULL ARTICLE=>

The jury in the Bronx synagogue bomb plot case was told Wednesday that the informant who provided the four suspects with phony bombs and missiles was paid $97,000 by the FBI.  The FBI gave Pakistani immigrant Shahed Hussain $44,000 for expenses and $53,000 for "his services" over a three-year period, agent Robert Fuller said.  Fuller, the first prosecution witness in the trial that started Tuesday, showed the jury one of the unexploded bombs the would-be terrorists planned to use to blow up one of two Riverdale synagogues.

President Obama Plans to Cut Social Security Next

Don’t Kill Yourself for the Elite

Infowars.com, September 2, 2010

Doomsday forecasts of global warming are used as social manipulation and political leveraging. The idea is used to corrupt any sense of self worth and to leave its victim filled with self hatred.

 

Desperate to reverse such feelings, victims lash out at others including themselves. Caught up in this lethal psychological web, the victims quickly lose sight of reality.

 

This is all part of the globalist agenda outlined in countless papers, books, and speeches. They will rid the planet of the low sucking human scourge and deliver  those left into a new technocracy. Don’t believe their lies! DON’T KILL YOURSELF FOR THE ELITE!  VIDEO AN TEXT=>

 

World Bank Threatens ‘Drastic Steps Necessary’ if Nations Refuse Population Reduction Implementation

By Jurriaan Maessen, Infowars.com, September 2, 2010

It’s the eugenicist in the Discover Channel building multiplied by a million. Not simply a lone eco-terrorist saying “parasitic human infants” must die, but one of the largest international financial institutions demanding it. To make the contrast even more remarkable, James J. Lee scared the living daylights out of some Discovery Channel employees, the IMF & World Bank take hostage entire nations.

 

In its 1984 World Development Report, the World Bank threatens nations who are slow in implementing the Bank’s “population policies” with “drastic steps, less compatible with individual choice and freedom.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Three Articles For Mass-Distribution: Rockefeller Depopulation Plans Exposed

By Jurriaan Maessen, Infowars.com, August 31, 2010

In the course of the last couple of weeks, Infowars published a three-part series on the Rockefeller Foundation’s admitted funding and developing of anti-fertility vaccines intended for “mass-scale distribution.”

 

I ask the great Infowars readership to launch a counterstrike against the new world order by, on our part, mass-distributing this information to as many people as possible. The more people aware of the Rockefeller’s plans for humanity, the smaller the chance that they will be successful. They may have the vaccines and GM Food, but we have the knowledge to stop them in their tracks.  FULL ARTICLE=>

The Reckless Mess Caused by the Fed

By Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster, September 1, 2010

Major increases in debt, the mess the Fed has created, liquidity trap, the way the world is shaped behind the scenes, bond market bubble, no sales for homes, defense companies  hoping to block disclosure, skepticism on policy tools.

 

Almost two years ago the US Treasury was selling large amounts of short-term Treasury bills to fund bailouts and stimulus. That caused a major increase in debt. Most of that paper was 2-year bills and it is coming due for rollover shortly. While that transpires, October will report the annual fiscal deficit of 9/30/10 of about $1.5 trillion, a figure thought impossible just 1-1/2 to 2 years ago.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Michael Pento Says Fed Will Buy Stocks And Real Estate In Its Next Attempt To Create Inflation

By Tyler Turdin, Zero Hedge, September 2, 2010

As part of the Fed’s latest QE iteration, it has already been made clear that despite initial disclosures that the Fed would stay in the 2-10 Year bound of Treasurys, Ben Bernanke is now also gobbling up the very long end of the curve.

 

For all those who are, therefore, still confused why bonds continue to surge to record levels, don’t be: when there is a guaranteed bidder just below you in the face of the Fed, and who you can turn around and sell to at will, there is no pricing risk.

 

The problem, from a bigger stand point, is what happens when the Fed is actively buying up 30 Year bonds with impunity and the much desired (by the Fed) inflation still does not appear? Well, the Fed then, in Michael Pento’s opinion, will begin to purchase stocks and real estate.  FULL ARTICLE=>

Death By Globalism

Have economists made themselves irrelevant? If you have any doubts, have a look at the current issue of the magazine, International Economy, a slick endorsed by former Federal Reserve chairmen Paul Volcker and Alan Greenspan, by Jean-Claude Trichet, president of the European Central Bank, by former Secretary of State George Shultz, and by the New York Times and Washington Post, both of which declare the magazine to be “ahead of the curve.”  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

What Obama Didn’t Say About Afghanistan

By George McGovern, ConsortiumNews.com, August 31,, 2010

My Fellow Americans

 

… so much for Iraq. Turning now to Afghanistan, let me be clear. My learning curve has been steep, as the New York Times noted last weekend. The curve has also been jagged as I have tried to assimilate the not-always-consistent advice the four-star generals have given me.

 

It’s been more than a little confusing. When I took office, Gen. David McKiernan was running the war in Afghanistan. He had expressed himself openly and strongly against an Iraq-style “surge” of forces, emphasizing that Afghanistan is “a far more complex environment than I ever found in Iraq,” where he had led U.S. ground forces.  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Iraq: An End or an Escalation?

By U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, Campaign for Liberty, August 31, 2010

Amid much fanfare last week, the last supposed “combat” troops left Iraq as the administration touted the beginning of the end of the Iraq War and a change in the role of the United States in that country. Considering the continued public frustration with the war effort, and with the growing laundry list of broken promises, this was merely another one of the administration’s operations in political maneuvering and semantics in order to convince an increasingly war-weary public that the Iraq War is at last ending. However, military officials confirm that we are committed to intervention in that country for years to come, and our operations have in fact, changed minimally, if really at all.  FULL ARTICLE=>

30 Statistics That Prove The Elite Are Getting Richer, The Poor Are Getting Poorer And The Middle Class Is Being Destroyed

The Economic Collapse Blog, August 31, 2010

Not everyone has been doing badly during the economic turmoil of the last few years.  In fact, there are some Americans that are doing really, really well. 

 

While the vast majority of us struggle, there is one small segment of society that is seemingly doing better than ever.  This was reflected in a recent article on CNBC in which it was noted that companies that cater to average Americans are doing rather poorly right now while companies that market luxury goods and services are generally performing exceptionally well. 

 

So why aren’t all American consumers jumping on the spending bandwagon?  Well, it seems that there are a large number of Americans who either can’t spend a lot of money right now or who are very hesitant to.  A stunningly high number of Americans are still unemployed, and for many other Americans, there is a very real fear that hard economic times will return soon. 

 

On the other hand, there is a significant percentage of Americans who are blowing money on luxury goods and services as if the economy has fully turned around and it is time to let the good times roll.  So exactly what in the world is going on here?  FULL ARTICLE=>

 

Two Men Held On Terrorism Precrime Charges as Anti-Muslim Hysteria Reaches Fevered Pitch

By Kurt Nimmo, Prisonplanet.com, August 31, 2010

The arrest of two men in Amsterdam on “preparation of a terror attack” charges could not have come at a more opportune time.  It appears the arrest of two men in Amsterdam on “preparation of a terror attack” charges is designed to coincide with the staged Ground Zero Mosque charade. Over the last couple weeks, the corporate media and neocon proponents of the forever war waged against Islam have stoked the flames of hatred.  FULL ARTICLE=>
