Une cure de grippe aviaire et de mercure


NO AUTISM In Never-Vaccinated Children

Homefirst's medical director, Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, told us he is not aware of any cases of autism in never-vaccinated children; the national rate is 1 in 175, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "We have a fairly large practice," Eisenstein told us. "We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we've taken care of over the years, and I don't think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines. "We do have enough of a sample," Eisenstein said. "The numbers are too large to not see it. We would absolutely know. We're all family doctors. If I have a child with autism come in, there's no communication. It's frightening. You can't touch them. It's not something that anyone would miss."

Webmaster's Commentary:

I have been flooded with emails insisting that there is no way there could be a link between Genetically Modified crops and Morgellon's Disease because the corporations would never, EVER, do anything that evil! (There is also the inevitable flood of emails insisting that Morgellon's patients are all psychosomatic or insisting that Morgellon's simply MUST be caused by chemtrails).

But as we saw with the Bayer Factor-8 scandal, American corporations do sell products that cause more harm than good as long as the laws and public awareness will let them get away with it.

The fact is that American children are the most vaccinated in the world, and the US has the highest per capita rate of Autism.

The US Government has declared that there is no link between the mercury-based preservative Thimerasol used in vaccines and autism, but since this is the same US Government that promised us there were nuclear weapons in Iraq, I think we can all agree that what the US Government says has nothing at all to do with reality.


FDA Stuns Scientists, Declares Mercury in Fish to be Safe for Infants, Children, Expectant Mothers!

You want to know the REAL reason the FDA is easing up on its warning about mercury in fish? It’s because the agency is being relentlessly pounded over two related issues: Mercury in dental fillings and mercury preservatives in vaccines. And the FDA can’t keep up its lie about the “safety” of vaccines and mercury fillings if it has already declared mercury to be dangerous in fish, right?

Webmaster's Commentary:

Unflipping believable. But of course, the FDA's strongest concern has never really been about protecting We the People: it's about protecting corporate profits.


Concerns over safety of cervical cancer vaccine after 1,300 girls experience adverse side-effects

More than 1,300 schoolgirls have experienced adverse reactions to the controversial cervical cancer jab.

Doctors have reported that girls aged just 12 and 13 have suffered paralysis, convulsions and sight problems after being given the vaccine.

Webmaster's Commentary:

See my comments below about American corporations being perfectly willing to sell products that are harmful.

I have been flooded with emails insisting that there is no way there could be a link between Genetically Modified crops and Morgellon's Disease because the corporations would never, EVER, do anything that evil!

Baxter: flu shots sent to Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Repulic contained live bird flu virus

People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses somehow co-mingled in the Orth-Donau facility. That is a dangerous practice that should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted.

Accidental release of a mixture of live H5N1 and H3N2 viruses could have resulted in dire consequences.

While H5N1 doesn’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hybrid virus able to transmit easily to and among people.

That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Did we all just dodge a depopulation bullet?

I mean, this combination of H5N1 with H3N2 could not be more deadly if it was designed that way, combining the lethal but hard to transmit H5N1 with the more easily transmitted H3N2?

As a side note, many researchers are now convinced that the HIV virus was accidentally created during the mass smallpox vaccination program in the 1950s (before reassortment was understood) when cowpox taken from cows with bovine leukemia were cultured on livers taken from sheep with the visna virus. The bovine leukemia and sheep viruses were merged under those conditions, creating a new virus, which to this day shows features of both original viruses.

Remember "Spanish Flu", which actually appeared on US military bases at the end of WWI and was spread to the rest of the world by infected US soldiers transferred to foreign bases ( I guess those trenches didn't kill off enough surplus population).


Baxter: Product contained live bird flu virus

The company that released contaminated flu virus material from a plant in Austria confirmed Friday that the experimental product contained live H5N1 avian flu viruses.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The media has been warning us all about a Bird Flu pandemic. Looks like Baxter was about to manufacture one right on cue!


‘Accidental’ Contamination Of Vaccine With Live Avian Flu Virus Virtually Impossible

Czech newspapers are questioning if the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus which were distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.

The claim holds weight because, according to the very laboratory protocols that are routine for vaccine makers, mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible.

According to a compiled translation from Czech newspaper stories, the media over there is asking tough questions about whether the contamination was part of a deliberate attempt to start a pandemic.

“Was this just a criminal negligence or it was an attempt to provoke pandemia using vaccination against flu to spread the disease - as happened with the anti-B hepatitis vaccination with vaccines containing the HIV virus in US? - and then cash for the vaccines against H5N1 which Baxter develops? How could on Earth a virus as H5N1 come to the ordinary flu vaccines? Don’t they follow even basic precautions in the american pharma companies?” states the translation.

The fact that Baxter mixed the deadly H5N1 virus with a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses is the smoking gun. The H5N1 virus on its own has killed hundreds of people, but it is less airborne and more restricted in the ease with which it can spread. However, when combined with seasonal flu viruses, which as everyone knows are super-airborne and easily spread, the effect is a potent, super-airbone, super deadly biological weapon.

As the Canadian Press article explains, “While H5N1 doesn’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hybrid virus able to transmit easily to and among people.”

The Canadian Press article states, “That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created,” but then claims that there is no evidence that this is what Baxter were doing, despite there being no clear explanation as to why Baxter has samples of the live avian flu virus on its premises in the first place.

However, to reiterate, the key aspect of this story is that it is virtually impossible for live avian flu virus to find its way into a vaccine by “accident”.

As health expert Mike Adams points out, “The shocking answer is that this couldn’t have been an accident. Why? Because Baxter International adheres to something called BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) - a set of laboratory safety protocols that prevent the cross-contamination of materials.”

Under the BSL3 code of conduct, it is impossible for live avian flu viruses to contaminate production vaccine materials that are shipped out to vendors around the world.

This leaves only two possibilities that explain these events:

Possibility #1: Baxter isn’t following BSL3 safety guidelines or is so sloppy in following them that it can make monumental mistakes that threaten the safety of the entire human race. And if that’s the case, then why are we injecting our children with vaccines made from Baxter’s materials?

Possibility #2: A rogue employee (or an evil plot from the top management) is present at Baxter, whereby live avian flu viruses were intentionally placed into the vaccine materials in the hope that such materials might be injected into humans and set off a global bird flu pandemic.

Spreading bird flu would create an instantaneous surge of demand for bird flu vaccines. The profits that vaccine companies such as Baxter International could reap out of such a panic are astronomical.

In addition, as we have previously reported, those that have a stake in the Tamiflu vaccine include top globalists and BIlderberg members like George Shultz, Lodewijk J.R. de Vink and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Authorities in both Europe and the U.S. have openly detailed plans for martial law, quarantine and internment should a bird flu pandemic occur.

The other motivation, as we have exhaustively documented on this website for years, is the fact that elites throughout history have openly stated that they want to see a world population reduction of around 80 per cent. Shocking stories like this take the plausibility of that narrative out of the realms of conspiracy theory and into the dangerous reality of conspiracy fact.

This is not the first time that vaccine companies have been caught distributing vaccines contaminated with deadly viruses.

In 2006 it was revealed that Bayer Corporation had discovered that their injection drug, which was used by hemophiliacs, was contaminated with the HIV virus. Internal documents prove that after they positively knew that the drug was contaminated, they took it off the U.S. market only to dump it on the European, Asian and Latin American markets, knowingly exposing thousands, most of them children, to the live HIV virus. Government officials in France went to prison for allowing the drug to be distributed. The documents show that the FDA colluded with Bayer to cover-up the scandal and allowed the deadly drug to be distributed globally. No Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States.


Study Finds High-Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Mercury

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

MONDAY, Jan. 26 (HealthDay News) -- Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient, according to two new U.S. studies.

HFCS has replaced sugar as the sweetener in many beverages and foods such as breads, cereals, breakfast bars, lunch meats, yogurts, soups and condiments. On average, Americans consume about 12 teaspoons per day of HFCS, but teens and other high consumers can take in 80 percent more HFCS than average.


Le véritable enjeu : le démantèlement de la Caisse de dépôt

- par Marc Laviolette, Pierre Dubuc - 2009-03-07


La Caisse de dépôt

- par Robin Philpot - 2009-03-05

C’est ce triple rôle de la Caisse - préserver l’indépendance d’action du gouvernement, promouvoir l’économie du Québec et être un instrument d’émancipation dans la perspective de la souveraineté du Québec - qui en fait la cible des milieux financiers et des fédéralistes.

Une gestion au profit de Power Corporation

Les derniers événements nous amènent à nous questionner sur l’indépendance du gouvernement Charest à l’égard des milieux financiers et plus particulièrement de la famille Desmarais. Standard & Poor’s - une firme complètement discréditée aux États-Unis pour avoir coté triple A la compagnie d’assurance American International Group (AIG), Fannie Mae et Freddie Mac - s’invite dans le débat. Puis, c’est au tour de la Chambre de commerce, dirigée par Hélène Desmarais, d’offrir une tribune dorée à Henri-Paul Rousseau, repêché par Power Corporation à la suite de ses déboires à la Caisse.

Bien qu’il n’y ait qu’un coin du voile qui ait été levé, il est évident que la Caisse a été gérée en fonction du nouveau mandat que lui a imposé le gouvernement Charest, soit la recherche du « rendement optimal », tout en investissant le moins possible dans l’économie québécoise.

Lors de la démission d’Henri-Paul Rousseau, un journaliste de La Presse a calculé qu’à peine 15,7 % de l’actif total des déposants gérés par la Caisse était détenu au Québec, dont près de la moitié portait exclusivement sur des obligations émises par le gouvernement et des organismes du secteur parapublic. En fait, seulement 8 % des actifs de la Caisse étaient directement investis dans l’économie du Québec. C’était moins que les investissements de la Caisse en Russie!

Cependant, sous la gouverne d’Henri-Paul Rousseau, la Caisse ne négligea pas d’investir dans Power Corporation et ses filiales. Au 31 décembre 2007, la Caisse détenait 4,6 millions d’actions de Power, représentant 187,5 millions de dollars. Elle possédait également des titres dans les filiales de Power, soit Corporation Financière Power (212,9 M$), Pargesa (500 000 $) et Groupe Bruxelles Lambert (5,4 M$). La Caisse avait aussi un investissement de 131 millions $ dans Total, la pétrolière française dont Power Corp est le principal actionnaire.

Le dernier clou dans le cercueil du Québec Inc.

La partition de la Caisse en plusieurs entités la priverait d’intervenir efficacement dans l’économie du Québec. Elle parachèverait l’opération de déconstruction du modèle québécois dont M. Parizeau a fait le constat lors de son allocution publique du 18 février 2008 à l’occasion des événements entourant la prise de contrôle de la Bourse de Montréal par la Bourse de Toronto.

M. Parizeau avouait que le Québec Inc. dont il avait patiemment contribué à l’édification n’existait plus. Le Mouvement Desjardins s’était allié à la Bourse de Toronto qui avait elle-même signé une entente avec Standard & Poor’s pour faire main basse sur 9% du marché des produits dérivés détenu par la Bourse de Montréal.

Quant à la Banque Nationale, des modifications apportées à Loi des banques par le gouvernement fédéral la rend vulnérable à une prise de contrôle étrangère en permettant à un seul actionnaire d’en détenir 65 % des actions.

M. Parizeau ajoutait que si, à l’époque, les opérations simples de la Bourse de Montréal avaient été gérées à Toronto - comme c’est désormais le cas - il n’aurait pas pu, lorsqu’il était ministre des Finances, lancer le Régime d’épargne actions qui a tant contribué à transformer les PME en grandes entreprises québécoises.

Couper les ailes et les pattes du mouvement souverainiste

La quasi-victoire souverainiste lors du Référendum de 1995 a causé la panique à Ottawa. La réaction des fédéralistes a été à la mesure de leur frousse. À la loi sur la Clarté se sont ajoutés le programme des commandites et les menaces de partition du territoire québécois - le député réformiste Stephen Harper a déposé un projet de loi à cet effet en 1996.

Deux autres leviers du mouvement souverainiste se sont également retrouvés dans leur collimateur : la reconnaissance diplomatique d’une déclaration d’indépendance par la France et le rôle de la Caisse de dépôt. Paul Desmarais s’est chargé de contrer le premier en courtisant assidûment les milieux politiques et culturels français et en prenant Nicolas Sarkozy sous son aile. La prochaine cible est-elle le démantèlement de la Caisse de dépôt et de placement?


U.S. Army document describes Israel as 'a nuclear power'

In a rare breach of official American adherence to Israel's policy of nuclear ambiguity, the U.S. military is terming Israel "a nuclear power" on a par with Russia, China, India, Pakistan and North Korea, all of which have declared their nuclear weapon status, and ahead of "nuclear threshold powers" Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, and the "emerging" Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary:

I have a REAL mission for you.

Copy this Ha'aretz article and forward to everyone you know, and CC your local media and president@whitehouse.gov . Remind them of the 1976 Symington Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Bill of 1961 which makes it ILLEGAL for the United States Government to send your tax dollars to any nation developing nuclear weapons outside the NNPT.

The existence of this document confirms that President Obama was being deliberately evasive when Helen Thomas asked him what nations in the middle east currently have nuclear weapons. Obama KNOWS (as prior Presidents have known) he is committing a crime by sending YOUR tax money to Israel even though they have nuclear weapons, but refuse to sign the NNPT.

Once again,m the US Government has been lying to you in order to serve a foreign power.

Passports will be needed to buy mobile phones

Everyone who buys a mobile telephone will be forced to register their identity on a national database under government plans to extend massively the powers of state surveillance.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This is utter nonsense and a total waste of taxpayer funds to create yet another bureaucracy.

This requirement will not stop terrorists. We already know from the Mumbai attacks that terrorists (or government agents posing as terrorists) can create their own SIM cards to mask the phone's identity. Even simpler than that is to have a sympathizer buy a cell phone for the terrorist to use, then claim it was stolen just prior to use (or simply mug a few people and grab their phones).

Ex-UN prosecutor: Bush may be next up for International Criminal Court

An ex-UN prosecutor has said that following the issuance of an arrest warrant for the president of Sudan, former US President George W. Bush could -- and should -- be next on the International Criminal Court's list.

Mars had 'recent' running water

Mars appears to have had running water on its surface about one million years ago, according to new evidence.

Images from a Nasa spacecraft orbiting the Red Planet show fan-shaped gullies on the surface which seem to be about 1.25 million years old, the study says.

They believe the channels were sculpted by surface water from melting ice.

It may represent the most recent period when water flowed on the planet, a team from Brown University in Rhode Island, US, report in the journal Geology.


Different name, same stink

I mention this now because the group just issued a piece aimed at the private military contractor Blackwater Worldwide. Or that’s what it used to be called. The company founded by Michigan native Erik Prince has changed its name to Xe (pronounced Zee).

I got a good laugh out of a cartoon accompanying the story posted on the watchdog group’s Web site. It shows three bugs around a desk in a PR firm’s office, with one of the creepy-crawlers saying, “First of all, we want our name changed from ‘cockroach’ to ‘companion beetle.’”

That pretty much captures the rationale behind the name change.

Monsanto's Uphill Battle in Germany

The dispute between the two camps revolves around the opportunities and risks involved in green genetic engineering. It's about companies that are playing God and about fundamental questions like: What should man be permitted to do? What can science do? And should we be allowed to do things just because we can? The dispute is also about freedom and its limitations, the freedom to carry out research, and the freedom of consumers, farmers, beekeepers and a corporation. Where does one side's freedom end and the other's begin, and who draws the boundaries?

Webmaster's Commentary:

The problem is that American corporations (ex demonstrated by Bayer) cannot be relied on to be truthful about potential harm form their products. Laboratories can only test for those risk factors they already know about. Unexpected side effects can show up once GM products are in the wild, and the problem with a genetics accident is that once released, getting it back under control may well be impossible.

At issue is the revelation that altered genes jot only affect the targeted portion of the genome, but can also produce unexpected changes to other parts of the organism as well.

There is hard evidence that pollen from GM plants harms beneficial insect species. There is evidence that animals fed on crops from GM seeds suffer reproductive harm.

Earlier this week we ran a story which identified agrobacterium, a plant bacteria used for gene insertions, in patients suffering Morgellon's Disease, a condition which has appeared coincident with, and primarily in areas with the highest density use of genetically modified crops.

No doubt GM companies will spend vast sums of money to keep the lid on such a scandal, as trillions of dollars are at stake not only with the collapse of the entire GM industry but the lawsuits which would follow hard proof of a GM link to any of these other problems as well.


Mammograms and Radiation

A new report released by the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement reveals that Americans' exposure to radiation has increased more than 600 percent over the last three decades. Most of that increase has come from patients' exposure to radiation through medical imaging scans such as CT scans and mammograms.


Warning about popular sodas

TORONTO - The chemical bisphenol A, already banned from baby bottles, has been detected in samples of almost every canned drink product tested by Health Canada.

The beverage industry says an adult would have to consume about 7,400 cans of pop a day to approach the tolerable intake levels set by Health Canada, but an environmental watchdog group wonders why the chemical, also known as BPA, has to be in the cans at all.

Studies done in animals show the chemical acts like the female hormone estrogen, and has been linked to cancer and infertility.

BPA can migrate from the plastic linings of cans. The plastic coating protects the food from direct contact with metal.

In the Health Canada survey, the highest level was registered in Rockstar Energy Drink at 4.5 parts per billion. At that level, an adult would have to consume more than 900 cans in one day before approaching the tolerable daily intake level set by Health Canada, according to the report.

Surprise Supreme Court Decision Ends Big Pharma's Pre-Emption Bid for Legal Immunity

In a 6-3 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against Wyeth in the Diana Levine case, setting a crucial precedent in the battle against Big Pharma.

Maine Town Passes Ordinance Asserting Local Self-Governance and Stripping Corporate Personhood

Today the citizens of Shapleigh, Maine voted at a special town meeting to pass a groundbreaking Rights-Based Ordinance, 114 for and 66 against. This revolutionary ordinance give its citizens the right to local self-governance and gives rights to ecosystems but denies the rights of personhood to corporations. This ordinance allows the citizens to protect their groundwater resources, putting it in a common trust to be used for the benefit of its residents. Shapleigh is the first community in Maine to pass such an ordinance, which extends rights to nature, however, the Ordinance Review Committee in Wells, Maine is considering passing one in their town. These communities have been under attack by Nestle Waters, N.A., a multi-national water miner that sells bottled water under such labels as Poland Springs. Communities have opposed the expansion by Nestle Waters, but the corporation will not take no for an answer. The town of Fryeburg, Maine has been in litigation with Nestle for six years. Nestle wants to expand and the town's people say no to the tanker trunk traffic which has disrupted their quiet scenic beauty, so Nestle's tactic is to wear them down, and break their bank.


Zhirinovsky proposes end to hate speech law

Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the parliamentary vice-speaker and outspoken leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, made the proposal Wednesday about Article 282 of the Russian Criminal Code, which is the center of nearly all prosecutions in Russia for anti-Semitic hate speech. It prohibits public incitement of ethnic or religious hatred.

In a memo attached to the proposal, Zhirinovsky pointed out that a broad interpretation of the law could be used to prosecute journalists for identifying the race of criminals in news stories or anyone for telling ethnic jokes.

"Who can say whether it is a crime to tell ethnic joke that are inciting hatred or hostility to Natives, Jews, Gypsies or Russians," the memo argues.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Economy has 'fallen off a cliff'


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Warren Buffett said on Monday the U.S. economy had "fallen off a cliff" but would eventually recover, although a rebound could kindle inflation worse than that experienced in the late 1970s.

Speaking on CNBC television, the 78-year-old billionaire said the country is experiencing a "close to the worst-case" scenario of falling business activity and rising unemployment, causing consumer confidence and spending to tumble.

Buffett called on Democratic and Republican policymakers to set aside partisan differences and unite under the leadership of President Barack Obama to wage an "economic war" that will fix the economy and restore confidence in banking.

He urged policymakers and regulators to communicate their efforts better to the public, though he stopped short of major, specific policy recommendations.

"People are confused and scared," he said. "People can't be worried about banks, and a lot of them are."

The CIA -- Who is it benefiting? The American people or American corporations?

By Wayne Madsen

(WMR) -- On February 26, 2009, WMR reported on a major date that may bear great significance on the collapses, bailouts, and investigations of a number of major international firms tied to CIA covert activities.

WMR reported that on May 5, 2006, just three days prior to Dusty Foggo’s resignation as the CIA’s executive director, CIA Director Porter Goss resigned. On the same day that Goss resigned, President George W. Bush signed an order exempting publicly traded companies from accounting and disclosure procedures, required under the 1934 Securities Exchange Act, for national intelligence reasons. Then-Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte was delegated the authority to exempt companies from compliance with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) law. (See Online Journal reprint.)

What Bush did with one stroke of a pen was to exempt companies like Stanford Financial Group, Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, American International Group (AIG), and other companies linked to U.S., and, in the case of Madoff, Israeli, covert intelligence activities from normal oversight and regulation by the SEC.


What does one TRILLION dollars look like?


The $700 trillion elephant

Try as we might to salvage the residential real estate market, it's at best worth $23 trillion in the U.S. We're struggling to save the stock market, but that's valued at less than $15 trillion. And we hope to keep the entire U.S. economy from collapsing, yet gross domestic product stands at $14.2 trillion.
Compare any of these to the derivatives market and you can easily see that we are just closing the windows as a tsunami crashes to shore. The total value of all the stock markets in the world amounts to less than $50 trillion, according to the World Federation of Exchanges.


Monetary Reform!

If I had the power, I would simultaneously

* wipe out all derivatives;
* liquidate all of the ill-gotten assets of criminal scam artists like Henry Paulson and Bernard Madoff, and use the resultant proceeds to help replenish whatever retirement funds they raided; and
* replace our current debt-based money system with a debt-free money system, whereby all new money -- instead of being loaned into circulation at interest -- is spent into circulation interest-free to fund the production and repair of public goods everyone can see and benefit from (e.g., roads and bridges), and at a rate pegged by law to objective criteria such as population growth and the general price level.

S&P Has Worst January and February on Record


Some Madoff stock trades were fiction

Investors wiped out by the Bernard Madoff scandal got more bad news on Friday: Investigators have confirmed suspicions that the monthly statements showing the disgraced financier was making stock trades for them were pure fiction.

"We have no evidence to indicate securities were purchased for customer accounts" in the past 13 years, said court-appointed trustee Irving Picard at a packed, town-hall style meeting at U.S. Bankruptcy Court in lower Manhattan. "This is a case where we're going to be looking at cash in and cash out" - the shorthand definition of a Ponzi scheme.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The entire Federal Reserve is a Ponzi scheme.

The system works only so long as an ever-enlarging pool of new borrowers can be brought in at the bottom to create the money to pay the interest owed by the older borrowers on top.

No new borrowers means no new money, and since more money is owed than actually exists, the system has to come down.

Ukraine Teeters as Citizens Blame Banks and Government - A Common Theme!

The New York Times CLIFFORD J. LEVY March 1, 2009

KIEV, Ukraine — Steel and chemical factories, once the muscle of Ukraine’s economy, are dismissing thousands of workers. Cities have had days without heat or water because they cannot pay their bills, and Kiev’s subway service is being threatened. Lines are sprouting at banks, the currency is wilting and even a government default seems possible.

The sign held by Vasily Kirilyuk, an unemployed plumber camped out with other antigovernment demonstrators here in the past week, summed up the pervasive frustration: “Get rid of them all,” it said.


Latvia's government collapses

Prime Minister Ivars Godmanis, who presented his resignation to President Valdis Zatlers on Friday, had been in power only since December 2007. But the precipitous plunge of Latvia's economy, which helped provoke the worst riot since 1991 last month, played a major part in the government's downfall.


Greek police defuse bomb outside Citibank in Athens

Greek police defused an explosive device found in the trunk of a car parked outside Citibank's (C.N) headquarters in a northern Athens suburb early on Wednesday.

The incident follows a number of gun attacks on police by left-wing guerrillas in recent weeks, in a climate of tension and street protests sparked by the police shooting of a 15-year-old boy in December.

Police said the stolen car was parked in the courtyard of Citibank's offices in the suburb of Kifissia. Citibank has a network of 85 branches in Greece.

Webmaster's Commentary:

They are still trying to claim that the Greek violence is the result of the shooting of the 15 year old boy, but obviously from the bombing's intended target, this is about the economic decline, and will not go away soon. What is quite revealing is that this is already a shooting war.

Recession claims 651,000 new US victims

More than 650,000 Americans lost their jobs in February as US employers feel the strain of an ailing economy, the Labor Department says.

More Americans have lost their jobs every month since January 2008, creating a decline in payroll employment of about 4.4 million, with more than half having occurred in the last 4 months.

According to CNN, the February drop marked the worst six-month job purge since the end of World War II.


Unemployment Jumps to 8.1%; 25 Year High

The US Labor Department reports that US non-farm payrolls fell by 651,000 in the short month of February bringing the US unemployment rate to 8.1%, the highest level in 25 years.

The number of unemployed persons increased by 851,000 to 12.5 million in February, and the unemployment rate
rose to 8.1 percent. Over the past 12 months, the number of unemployed persons has increased by about 5.0
million, and the unemployment rate has risen by 3.3 percentage points.


Anglo American cuts 19,000 jobs and payout

Anglo American, the mining group, is to cut 19,000 jobs this year and scrap its dividend after a collapse in commodity prices. It is to bring in a $2 billion (£1.4 billion) cost-saving programme to meet the global downturn.

The company is to lose 10 per cent of its workforce, including 10,000 previously announced jobs at Anglo Platinum and 9,000 at other divisions. Platinum has been hard hit by the downturn because it is used in the car industry to make catalytic converters.

Lost jobs, mass poverty: United States threatened by riots and social unrests

The global financial crisis could lead to an economic meltdown - and to instable democratic structures in the western world. Because governments spend more billions than they possess, the outcome will probably be a massive inflation connected with millions of lost jobs - or even the total collapse.

Report: Israel nears attacking Iran

Top US politicians have reportedly said that Israel is seriously considering taking unilateral military action against Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Which would be perfectly fine with me as long as it was just Israel and Iran, but you know and I know that Israel wants to attack Iran now because it knows that YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS are stuck right in the middle of the path that Iran would have to travel for a counter attack.

So, Israel bombs Iran, Iran retaliates and the US gets dragged into another of Israel's wars.


Israel annexing East Jerusalem, says EU

A confidential EU report accuses the Israeli government of using settlement expansion, house demolitions, discriminatory housing policies and the West Bank barrier as a way of "actively pursuing the illegal annexation" of East Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Big shocker there, right?

UN Resolution 252: "...‘declares invalid’ Israel’s acts to unify Jerusalem as Jewish capital"

UN Resolution 267: "...‘censures’ Israel for administrative acts to change the status of Jerusalem"

UN Resolution 271: "...‘condemns’ Israel’s failure to obey UN resolutions on Jerusalem"

UN Resolution 298: "...‘deplores’ Israel’s changing of the status of Jerusalem"

UN Resolution 476: "...‘reiterates’ that Israel’s claims to Jerusalem are ‘null and void’

UN Resolution 478: "...‘censures (Israel) in the strongest terms’ for its claim to Jerusalem in its ‘Basic Law’


Boycott of Israel is Starting to Bite

It’s often difficult for activists to gauge the effect of what they are doing and it is easy to become disheartening. However it is clear that the growing level of support for Boycott in the trade unions and similar organizations, coupled with a consumer boycott and individual businesses also refusing to trade with Israel is making its mark.

Iran:


Officials: Iran does not have key nuclear material

Iran does not yet have any highly enriched uranium, the fuel needed to make a nuclear warhead, two top U.S. intelligence officials told Congress Tuesday, disputing a claim by an Israeli official.

Iran still lacks arms-grade nuclear material: U.S

Iran still lacks weapons-grade highly enriched uranium and has not yet made a decision on whether to produce any, U.S. intelligence officials told Congress on Tuesday.

The officials -- Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lieutenant General Michael Maples -- also said recent Iranian missile tests were not directly related to its nuclear activities.


Clinton Declares Iran a Threat

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lashed out at the Iranian government today, declaring them a threat to the Middle East, Europe and Russia. Clinton also claimed that “it is clear that Iran intends to interfere with the internal affairs of all of these people.”

Clinton's press conference supports Israel and demonizes Iran

This week Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on a visit to the Middle East and Europe to mobilize support for U.S. imperialism. On March 3, 2009 she gave a press conference in Israel. In the press conference, she made clear that the new Obama administration is dedicated to pursuing continued U.S. dominance of the Middle East. In the pursuit of this dominance, Clinton emphasized that Israel is a key U.S. ally and Iran is a key enemy.


Ramping up the booga booga

Iran has ready access to enough fissile material to produce up to 50 nuclear weapons and can develop a nuclear bomb within a year, according to a panel of experts advising the Obama Administration officials.

US fails to derail Iran-Russia arms deal

The Russian foreign minister disappoints US hopes by clarifying that its military cooperation with Iran complies with international law.

"These issues ... are decided exclusively within the law and Russian national regulations… We are supplying non-destabilizing, defensive weapons," Sergei Lavrov said following a meeting with his US counterpart Hillary Clinton in Geneva.

"We fully take into account concerns voiced by our US and Israeli partners and favor intensification of work on proposals made by the 5-plus-one group, which include ... the start of equal talks with Iran and other regional states to ensure common security," he added.



Irak:


Concerns Over Special Forces May Stall Already Limited Iraq Pullout

Most of the previous criticism of President Barack Obama’s “pullout” plan from Iraq has centered around it being less a pullout plan than a plan to continue the war indefinitely. But after a week of getting used to the idea that 50,000 troops will remain on the ground and engaging in combat long after the government declares combat operations over, some in the military are now concerned that the pullout is taking key support units, while leaving the elite forces which are dependant on them in place.

Afghanistan:


UK ex-commander says Afghanistan mission "worthless"

Ex-SAS commander Maj. Sebastian Morley, who resigned last year in protest at the handling of the conflict, said operations were being undermined by a lack of troops and resources.

"I don't think we have even scratched the surface as far as the conflict goes," he told the Daily Telegraph in an interview published on Saturday, his first since stepping down.

"I think the level of casualties and attrition is only set to rise. This is the equivalent to the start of the Vietnam conflict, there is much more to come," he said.

"We hold tiny areas of ground in Helmand and we are kidding ourselves if we think our influence goes beyond 500 metres of our security bases," Morley said.



Inde:


Suspicions grow that attack was 'inside job'

The numerous failings fuelled speculation that the attack might have been, at least in part, an "inside job". In previous terror attacks in Pakistan, the perpetrators appeared to have considerable intelligence about their targets. Car bombers have struck at army and anti-terror police headquarters in the past two years without the slightest hindrance.

The commando-style raid in Liberty Square drew comparisons with last November's attacks in Mumbai, India, which were blamed on the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba group and other jihadist organisations which were deployed as proxies by the army to fight in Indian-administered Kashmir.
