- Cette semaine nous parlons de l'Internet et la censure, du rôle des médias traditionnels en connexion avec les crimes de Bush et Cheney ainsi que des mesures d'impeachment ont été déposées.
Nous vous livrons les dernières nouvelles importantes du Moyen-Orient dont l'Irak et le Pakistan; des excuses d'Ottawa à l'égard du peuple autochtone en plus d'un dossier spécial sur la très peu connue "Continuité du Gouvernement (COG)" aux États-Unis en relation avec le 9/11.
L'Autre Monde, pour la plus importante information de la semaine et ce, sans détour. Cette émission est documentée. Nous menons la guerre à la désinformation!
Soyez au rendez-vous le jeudi à 11h sur les ondes de CHOQ FM!

Two governments: The public and the deep
If you don't know the work of
Peter Dale Scott you should.
He's one of the most thorough scholars
on what he calls the "deep" government.
It's the space where government, law
enforcement, drug dealers and corporate
criminals collaborate outside the eyes
of the sleeping news media.
The interview conducted by University of
Berkeley starts with some softball questions,
but hang in there. Very worthwhile.
"If members of the Homeland Security Committee cannot enforce their right to read secret plans of the Executive Branch, then the systems of checks and balances established by the U.S. Constitution would seem to be failing.
To put it another way, if the White House is successful in frustrating DeFazio, then Continuity of Government planning has arguably already superseded the Constitution as a higher authority."
About 150,000 native children went through the programs, which were an extension of religious missionary work designed to assimilate them into Christian society. An estimated 80,000 are still alive.
The apology comes as part of a $4 billion compensation and healing package for residential school abuse survivors.
Basil Parasiris was acquitted on Friday by a 12-person jury at the Longueuil courthouse, on
He was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Const. Daniel Tessier, who died after being shot three times last spring after he entered Parasiris's Brossard home with a battering ram during a botched drug raid.
The verdict means the jury believed Parasiris's self-defence argument was enough to raise a reasonable doubt about the charges.
I agree with this. If the police kick down the wrong door, the occupants should have the right to repel using lethal force. From their point of view it is a home invasion by armed men.
The U.S.-based Centre for Health, Environment and Justice says polyvinyl chloride (PVC) shower curtains may release 108 toxic chemicals into the air.
The study found the ubiquitous PVC curtains contain harmful chemicals that can cause a litany of adverse health effects to the lungs, central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

Dmitry Khavinson and Genevra Neumann didn't know anything about astrophysics. They were just doing mathematics, like they always do, following their curiosity. In 2004, they posted a new result, an extension of the fundamental theorem of algebra, on MathSciNet, a preprint server.
Five days later, they received an e-mail. Congratulations, it said. You just proved Sun Hong Rhie's conjecture on gravitational lensing.
The spring 2008 survey finds that a record-breaking 46 percent of all Americans have used the internet, e-mail or cell-phone text messaging to participate in the political process.
A record percentage of Americans have used the internet to participate in the most closely-watched presidential election in decades, finds a newly-released survey from the non-partisan Pew Internet & American Life Project.
This, from the country that gave the world the Magna Carta?!?
But to those in the U.K. who might still be thinking about protesting at Parliament Square, please remember this; individuals in the group advocating any kind of violence against people or property are most likely some kind of intelligent agents, hoping to "kookify" the entire peace movement.
The Special Boat Service (SBS) and the Special Reconnaissance Regiment have been taking part in the US-led operations to capture Bin Laden in the wild frontier region of northern Pakistan. It is the first time they have operated across the Afghan border on a regular basis.
Obviously, Bush has legacy on the brain syndrome, to be pulling this kind of stunt.
And I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry, reading this.
Ben Laden "assumed room temperature" some years ago, and both the
So what do you think they're going to do, find someone who looks like Bin Laden to arrest, throw in jail, and ultimately assassinate just so that some people might actually think they really caught the guy?
If Washington and
Asked what he thinks his legacy might be, he says he is happy to await the verdict of history. But he cannot resist also offering his own, suggesting 'the liberation of 50 million people from the clutches of barbaric regimes is noteworthy, at a minimum'.
To make a statement like this, one has to wonder if Bush is off his medication, taking way too much, or has just decided that somehow continuing to lie to the American people and the world just might serve to make the lie true.;
His "legacy" will be the deaths of over one million Iraqis, and thousands of Afghanis.
Many others in both countries have had to flee for fear of their lives due to sectarian strife.

Women have had to revert to wearing the full burka, because if they don't they will be assassinated by religious zealots.
The no-bid alleged "reconstruction projects" have been an absolutely horrendous joke in terms shoddy workmanship that crumbles if you sneeze too hard at a wall.
And of course, the real "gift that has kept on giving", both in
This has caused death and huge numbers of birth defects not only in the people of these countries, but also with our troops and their children.
No matter how he may try to spin it, Bush's "legacy" will be that of a complete absence of moral accountability for the death and destruction his policies have wrought.
The Bush administration's
You have to wonder if this administration thought that Iraqis were just going to roll over and play dead on this massive national insult (much as the 110th congress has during its tenure in Washington).
So now, what?

Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced 35 articles of impeachment against George W. Bush for high crimes ranging from creating a false propaganda campaign to lead the country into an illegal war to felony treason in leaking classified information of CIA operative Valerie Plame to obstructing justice of the investigation of the attacks of September 11th.
One might think that this would be on the front page of every newspaper and website as well as the lead story on all the major networks. THE STORY IS NOT BEING COVERED even though tonight the articles for impeachment received a co-sponsor. Rep. Robert Wexler of

The story now appears to be that Ahmadinajad got into a fight and had a tooth knocked out, put it under his pillow last night, and the @#%ing tooth fairy put some nuclear warhead plans under there for him to find in the morning!
They better really crank up the meprobamate in the water supply if they expect Americans to sit still for this one!
American and international investigators say that they have found the electronic blueprints for an advanced nuclear weapon on computers that belonged to the nuclear smuggling network run by Abdul Qadeer Khan, the rogue Pakistani nuclear scientist, but that they have not been able to determine whether they were sold to Iran or the smuggling ring's other customers.
Notice the clustering and timing of these stories, even though the "journalists" writing them have absolutely zero proof that
This is no accident, and the timing is very interesting, with Bush just finishing his little European junket on US taxpayers' dollars.

It all goes back to what is called "the laptop of death" - a portable computer obtained in mid-2004 from a "walk-in" source, who had supposedly received it from another unidentified person in Iran, which contained "voluminous" plans for the construction of a missile containing a nuclear warhead.
If this sounds like the
The George W. Bush administration has long pushed the "laptop documents" -- 1,000 pages of technical documents supposedly from a stolen Iranian laptop -- as hard evidence of Iranian intentions to build a nuclear weapon. Now charges based on those documents pose the only remaining obstacles to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declaring that
But those documents have long been regarded with great suspicion by
There are some indications, moreover, that the MEK obtained the documents not from an Iranian source but from
Nonetheless, doubts about the intelligence persist among some foreign analysts. In part, that is because American officials, citing the need to protect their source, have largely refused to provide details of the origins of the laptop computer beyond saying that they obtained it in mid-2004 from a longtime contact in Iran.

One of the most shocking indications of this repressive atmosphere is a campaign by Zionist organizations to convince university administrations to ban the phrase "Israeli Apartheid". At McMaster University in Hamilton, for example, students organizing IAW events on their campuses were issued with a letter from the Provost office informing them that the university had banned the term "Israeli Apartheid" from use by student clubs. This effectively ended their participation in the week as they were then barred from attaining the necessary approval to advertise, book rooms, etc. A massive mobilization by students and community allies forced the university to backtrack from this position. Nevertheless, letters and articles by Zionist organizations and supporters continue to appear in local

global warming climate change nonsense is a scam to trick you into making do with less, so the elites can have more. $45 trillion is a $6000 global tax paid by every single living human being on Earth. And Al Gore and his brokerage get to play with a huge chunk of it.
Is this Al Gore's reward for letting Bush steal the 2000 election?
The IEA declared on Tuesday that
The Army is weighing in on the global warming debate, claiming that climate change is not entirely man-made. Instead, Dr. Bruce West, with the Army Research Office, argues that "changes in the earth’s average surface temperature are directly linked to ... the short-term statistical fluctuations in the Sun’s irradiance and the longer-term solar cycles."
In an advisory to bloggers entitled "Global Warming: Fact of Fiction [sic]," an Army public affairs official promoted a conference call with West about "the causes of global warming, and how it may not be caused by the common indicates [sic] some scientists and the media are indicating."
In the March, 2008 issue of Physics Today, West, the chief scientist of the Army Research Office's mathematical and information science directorate, wrote that "the Sun’s turbulent dynamics" are linked with the Earth's complex ecosystem. These connections are what is heating up the planet. "The Sun could account for as much as 69 percent of the increase in Earth’s average temperature," West noted.

There is more than twice as much oil in the ground as major producers say, according to a former industry adviser who claims there is widespread misunderstanding of the way proven reserves are calculated.
Although it is widely assumed that the world has reached a point where oil production has peaked and proven reserves have sunk to roughly half of original amounts, this idea is based on flawed thinking, said Richard Pike, a former oil industry man who is now chief executive of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Current estimates suggest there are 1,200 billion barrels of proven global reserves, but the industry's internal figures suggest this amounts to less than half of what actually exists.
The misconception has helped boost oil prices to an all-time high, sending jitters through the market and prompting calls for oil-producing nations to increase supply to push down costs.
Explaining why the published estimates of proven global reserves are less than half the true amount, Dr Pike said there was anecdotal evidence that big oil producers were glad to go along with under-reporting of proven reserves to help maintain oil's high price. "Part of the oil industry is perfectly familiar with the way oil reserves are underestimated, but the decision makers in both the companies and the countries are not exposed to the reasons why proven oil reserves are bigger than they are said to be," he said.
The rising price is caused by the falling dollar.

"Supply and demand" is irrelevant in this circus. The game is not about supply levels; it's about betting on what the price will be in the future. It does not matter how much food or oil exists.

The scenario goes like this. Imagine a sudden shutdown of oil supplies; a sudden collapse in the petrol that streams steadily through the pumps and so into the engines of the lorries which deliver our food around the country, stocking up the supermarket shelves as soon as any item runs out.
If the trucks stopped moving, we'd start to worry and we'd head out to the shops, cking up our larders. By the end of Day One, if there was still no petrol, the shelves would be looking pretty thin. Imagine, then, Day Two: your fourth, fifth and sixth meal. We'd be in a panic. Day three: still no petrol.

Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP's all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These 'other' sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet.
Dylan Pattyn *, who is currently writing an article for Time Magazine on the issue, has official confirmation from sources within Bell Canada and is interviewing a marketing representative from TELUS who confirms the story and states that TELUS has already started blocking all websites that aren't in the subscription package for mobile Internet access. They could not confirm whether it would happen in 2012 because both stated it may actually happen sooner (as early as 2010). Interviews with these sources, more confirmation from other sources and more in-depth information on the issue is set to be published in Time Magazine soon.
What can we do?
The reason why we're releasing this information is because we believe we can stop it. More awareness means more mainstream media shedding light on it, more political interest and more pressure on the ISP's to keep the Internet an open free space. We started this social network as a platform for Internet activism where we can join forces, share ideas and organize any form of protest that may have an impact. If we want to make a difference in this, we have to join together and stand united as one powerful voice against it.
In fact, worse still is that any site is now game for a French blockade, as Sarkozy's government is inviting people to send in huge long lists of sites which offend their delicate sensibilities. The French government, which will purportedly be able to receive complaints from Internet users in real time, will be able to add sites to a so called "black list", which it will then force national ISPs to block.
It's very sad American soldiers who once bravely fought against Fascism overseas are now simply obeying orders from the Fascists here at home.
The many lies told by Fox and Bill O'Reilly are probable cause to suspect Fox of criminal complicity with the Bush regime. It is reasonable to suspect that Fox is called Bush's 'propaganda ministry' because it is Bush's propaganda ministry. Bush may yet stand trial for war crimes and mass murder. But what of his enablers inside his 'propaganda ministry'? It is reasonable to ask how many members of the Fox board, how many executives, how many on-camera shills share Bush's guilt for having perpetrated a murderous lie upon the American people and the world.

A Background to Bilderberg
Sunday, June 8, 2008, marked the last day of this year’s annual Bilderberg meeting, which took place in Chantilly, Virginia. The American Friends of Bilderberg, an American Bilderberg front group, which organizes the American participant list for the annual Bilderberg conference, issued a rare press release this year. It stated that, "The Conference will deal mainly with a nuclear free world, cyber terrorism, Africa,
Bilderberg, which has been meeting annually since 1954, is a highly secretive international think tank and some say, policy-forming group made up of representatives from North America and Western Europe and was founded by Joseph Retinger, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and Belgian Prime Minister Paul Van Zeeland. The Bilderberg Steering Committee, made up of around 30 people, (with no official list available), "decided that it would invite 100 of the most powerful people in Europe and
According to The Globe and Mail, such Canadian Prime Ministers have, in the past, (often before becoming Prime Minister), attended a Bilderberg Conference as a guest, including Pierre Trudeau, Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper.3 Tony Blair attended Bilderberg before becoming Prime Minister,4 as did the current British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, who also recently called for the establishment of a "new world order."
