Émission du 6 mars 2009:
Cette semaine, nous faisons le tour des derniers développements en Israël, Iran, Gaza, Irak, Pakistan, Afghanistan et au Liban. Le dossier de l'économie est aussi abordé, particulièrement le cas scandaleux des pertes de 40$ milliards de la Caisse de dépôt et placements du Québec. Nous complétons avec un aperçu du Codex Alimentarius qui a pour effet de rendre illégales les herbes médicinales et la médecine alternative à toute fin pratique, ainsi qu'un tour de l'actualité dans la chronique LNI.
Soyez au rendez-vous les jeudis à 11h sur les ondes de CHOQ FM!

Les pires résultats de son histoire
Mise à jour le mercredi 25 février 2009
C’est pour ça que John James Charest (le poulain des Desmarais et des néoconservateurs/fédéralistes/droite religieuse-sioniste/corporatistes) a lancé les élections en automne dernier. Il savait que ce scandale était pour lui nuire et possiblement lui couter les élections, alors il s’est dit valait mieux reprendre le pouvoir avant que cela se sache.
Mieux vaut avoir son homme de main au pouvoir pour aider à camoufler les vraies raisons et acteurs qui sont responsable de la perte de 40$ MILLIARDS DE NOTRE ARGENT.
ALLONS-NOUS LAISSEZ CE SCANDALE PASSER SOUS SILENCE SANS ENQUÊTE FORMELLE ET INDÉPENDANTE SUR CE QUI S’EST PASSÉ À
Il ne faudrait pas manquer d’enquêter sur les liens et conflits d’intérêts en Charest, son gouvernement et les Desmarais.
N’est-il pas temps que nous fassions la lumière sur les vrais maitres du Québec? Pourquoi tolérer cette main invisible qui a tant de pouvoir sur la politique au Québec?
Sommes-nous si soumis que ça?

M. Rousseau a donné sa démission le 30 mai 2008. Il ne reste que juin,juillet, septembre… On ne peut pas avoir décapité la caisse en trois mois. On aurait plutôt tendance à croire que le capitaine a quitté le navire bien aux faits de ce qui se passait.
Et une prime de 380,000$.

"The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television.

When Eric Holder, the new U.S. Attorney General called the nation to account for its historic reluctance to honestly talk about race and racism, its manifestations and consequences, he could have been talking about his boss the president. By withdrawing from the UN Conference on Racism he is leading backwards, in the direction of Clinton and Bush rather than forward into the 21st century. The fact that the President of Change can't bring himself -- or us --- to an honest discussion about race says a lot for his willingness to lead on the subject.
According to the US defense officials, Obama needs USD 75.5 billion for 2009 to cover the cost of the additional troops deployed in to Afghanistan this year and an another USD 130 billion for the rest of fiscal 2009.
The war spending request will be in addition to USD 534 billion for the US Defense Department's other expenditures.
The US Congress had already approved USD 65.9 billion in emergency wartime spending for fiscal 2009.
The report concluded that the nearly USD 1 trillion already spent is only a down payment on the war's long-term costs.
This is just the cost of the operations in

The "crisis" in the newspaper industry may, therefore, be more of a crisis for the journalists and publishers who are currently facing job losses and bankruptcy.
But if it is merely the quantity, but not the quality, of journalism that declines then - for readers - there may not be a crisis at all.

E.W. Scripps, which owns newspaper, known locally as The Rocky, announced Thursday that it had failed to find a buyer for the daily.

This year's Berlin International Film Festival provided a veritable showcase for films that criticize globalization and free market ideology. From Michael Winterbottom's "The Shock Doctrine" to "The Yes Men Fix the World" to the sober intellectual history of neo-liberalism portrayed in the "L'encerclement" to Michael Winterbottom's cinematic adaptation of Naomi Klein's bestselling book "The Shock Doctrine," this year's Berlinale has tapped into a zeitgeist that resoundingly rejects the notion that "greed is good", many films cast businessmen as the world's new baddies.

"We do not think a military commander carrying out a raid on a terrorist cell would be required to demonstrate probable cause or to obtain a warrant," the Office of Legal Counsel memo (.pdf) said.

(CBS) For years, reproductive specialists have been helping people become parents, even enabling them to choose the sex of their baby.
One fertility doctor is taking things a step further, offering what some are calling "designer babies," as Early Show national correspondent Hattie Kauffman reports.
If you could design your baby's features, would you? According to
"Let me quote Dr. Steinberg. He just said he predicts we will have determined sex with 100 percent accuracy and eye color with 80 percent accuracy in the next year. Does that give you pause at all?" Rodriguez asked.
"I disagree completely. There are really three things to think about. One is, when you move away from diseases, who's to say what's the better trait? Is it better to be red-headed than it is to be brown-haired? Is it better to have freckles or not? Those sorts of things are subjective and in some ways driven by our culture," Caplan said.
"Secondly, you're going to have the rich using these technologies, and that's going to advantage them further. It's not going to be something the poor get to do. Lastly, you've got a problem here, why are doctors in this business at all? He said (Dr. Jeff Steinberg), 'I have to serve my patients,' but is this just a cash business where you'd say, you know, 'I want a child with short arms. I want a kid with athletic ability.' Okay. Well, we'll do that. Is everything and anything for sale at the fertility clinic?" Dr. Caplan asked.
The case of Nadya Suleman, who had octuplets, has raised so many debates like this. The doctor who implanted six embryos is being criticized. A lot of people say there should be a law prohibiting that, Rodriguez pointed out.
This can lead to false expectations on children, he explained. The parents may pick a child to be smart, and he or she doesn't succeed, then they become upset because they invested money and didn't get what they want.

Statement by INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters,
02 March 2009
While INTERPOL does not ordinarily comment on false stories reported in the media, in light of the nature of recent erroneous articles reporting that INTERPOL is being used by Iranian authorities to seek the arrest of 15 senior Israeli officials on alleged charges of war crimes in Gaza, the Organization is taking the unusual step of making the following public statement:
“INTERPOL has neither been requested to issue by Iran, nor has it issued on behalf of Iran or any of its 187 member countries any Red Notices for persons wanted internationally or other requests seeking the arrest of senior Israeli officials for alleged war crimes in relation to the Gaza offensive in December and January.”
INTERPOL’s Constitution strictly prohibits the Organization from making ‘any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character’.
All further enquiries should be directed to the source reported in the media. Since INTERPOL has received no information in relation to the alleged false claim, INTERPOL is unable to comment further on this matter.

The Government is refusing to release minutes of Cabinet meetings before the Iraq War because they would reveal there was no discussion on the issue.
Details surrounding two crucial meetings on the eve of the conflict were laid bare for the first time yesterday when former Cabinet Minister Clare Short, who was present at both, gave a full account of what happened.
She told The Mail on Sunday the main reason for the ‘scandalous’ decision not to publish the minutes was not to protect confidential discussions about the war, but to cover up the fact there was no such discussion.
After the “pullout,” as many as 50,000 troops will remain on the ground, and despite being touted as a withdrawal of combat troops, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell conceded that some would continue to “conduct combat operations,” and

Above all, they over ensure that no Muslim country can possess nuclear capability and be in a position to avert blackmailing and bullying tactics. In other words, both desire weak and subservient states doing their bidding. Nuclear capability with any country is a death knell for their megalomaniac aspirations and hence a binding necessity to prevent its acquisition.

A U.S. missile attack killed at least 25 al Qaeda-linked militants in a Pakistani tribal region on Saturday, security and Taliban officials said, the highest death toll of militants in a single such strike.
The strike by pilotless drones in the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border was the third such attack since U.S. President Barack Obama took office last month and could ignite fresh popular anger in
"Our people have informed us that at least 25 people were killed. It could be more," the official told Reuters. A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons, said 25 to 30 people were killed.
The attacks killed more than 220 people, including foreign militants, according to a tally of reports from Pakistani intelligence agents, district government officials and residents.
With two missile strikes over the past week, the Obama administration has expanded the covert war run by the Central Intelligence Agency inside
The strikes are another sign that President Obama is continuing, and in some cases extending, Bush administration policy in using American spy agencies against terrorism suspects in
The large death toll will likely also bring uncomfortable attention to the comments by Senator Dianne Feinstein, who claimed that the drones were being “flown out of a Pakistani base”. With the Pakistani government officially complaining about the attacks amid public outrage, such a revelation would likely further destabilize an already floundering Pakistani government.
If this allegation is true about the

The United Nations says civilian deaths rose nearly 40 percent last year to 2,118, the most in any year since the 2001 invasion that drove the Taliban from power. Most of the casualties last year were caused by the Taliban and other insurgents, the United Nations found, but 828 deaths were attributed to American, NATO and Afghan forces, mostly from airstrikes and village raids. Afghan officials fear the numbers will rise as more American troops deploy to the country.
In our contemporary world where the visual message trumps the written word, photos of those killed or wounded by U.S/NATO actions rarely are published (those killed or wounded by the Taliban frequently appear in the western mainstream press). They generate too much discomfort.

Your tax dollars at work, folks; while American vets sleep in our streets.
The knuckleheads who put together the "plan" for the Afghanistan campaign apparently had not one bit of understanding about the history of the people they were going to fight, and managed to have selective amnesia on that little bit in the military tactical books stating that a country cannot possibly win what is a land war from the air.(something I had hoped we would learn from Viet Nam, but apparently haven't.)
All this, coupled with what can only be kindly described as "magical thinking" has lead us to where we are, 7 years on. We have an insurgency which wants its country back, an Afghani president and government so crooked that the people believe that they have to screw their socks on in the morning, and - oh yes - the opium poppy business is booming!

All of this wealth of archaeological treasures must of course annoy
There is considerable reason to suspect that the tales told in the Old Testament are just that; tales. The Bible is not science, it is the collected stories of a primitive tribal people telling each other how important they are. And like fishermen talking about the won that got away, or Ramses with his temple carvings of the did-not-really-happen victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, the writers of the ancient testaments assumed that the people they were telling stories to had no way to verify the claims for themselves. So "embellishment" was a low-risk activity.
We do know from the available archaeological evidence that the Exodus probably actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Israelites. We know that the story of Moses is suspect because no Egyptian princess would hide a Hebrew child inside Pharaoh's household, then give the kid a Hebrew name ("Moses" is actually an Egyptian title meaning "Prince" and is included in the names of many Pharaoh's names such as Tut-Moses, Ah-Moses, Ra-Moses (Ramses) etc.)
Likewise, the story of
But a good story is a good story and the writers of the ancient texts were probably not thinking much further into the future than the guys who pen the "Celebrity dates space alien" stories you see at supermarket checkout lines. The fact that the celebrity is a real person does not prove the space alien exists. It's just a story.
Given enough time, even a simple story written in jest can take on a life of its own. Scientology began as a bet between two science fiction writers; look how wide spread that has become in just a short time.
But, over time, entire religions with attendant wealth and power structures have been built on the premise that these ole testament stories really happened exactly as written. And today, here in the 21st century world, science has started to catch up with these ancient legends and call many of them into doubt.
So, for a nation that justifies its existence on the writings of the Torah, the plethora of sites and artifacts confirming the ancient histories of Egypt, Iraq, Iran, etc. etc. etc. must seem a dire political threat for a nation whose own ancient history seems to have left little if any traces at all.
In that context, the strange behavior of the
