Chacun sa vérité

Le 11 septembre 2001, le monde entier regardait, incrédule et en état de choc, des avions s'abattre sur les tours du World Trade Center de New York et sur le Pentagone, à Washington. Les Américains ont alors subitement compris qu'ils étaient attaqués, mais par qui? Que s'est-il réellement passé? Nos collègues de l'émission The fifth estate http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/2009-2010/the_unofficial_story/ nous présentent des gens qui croient que le cerveau derrière ces attentats n'était pas Oussama ben Laden, mais plutôt le gouvernement américain.

29 Structural/Civil Engineers Cite Evidence for Controlled Explosive Demolition in Destruction of All 3 WTC High-Rises on 9/11

The facts are in. The evidence is conclusive. These experts lay it all out.

For Some, the Doubts Began Early

“Something is wrong with this picture,” thought Nathan Lomba, as he watched replays of the Twin Tower collapses on television on September 11, 2001. A licensed structural engineer trained in buildings’ responses to stress, Lomba saw more on the screen than you or I. He puzzled, “How did the structures collapse in near-symmetrical fashion when the damage was clearly not symmetrical?”

Un membre de l’administration Obama réclame « l’infiltration cognitive » des « groupes de conspiration sur le 11 septembre »

par Daniel Tencer

The Raw Story

Dans un article académique de 2008, la personne nommée par le président Barack Obama à la tête de l’Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (Bureau de l’Information et des Affaires réglementaires) a recommandé l’« infiltration cognitive » des groupes qui promeuvent les « théories de conspiration » comme celles entourant le 11 septembre.

Cass Sunstein, professeur de droit à Harvard, est le co-auteur de cet article intitulé « Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures » (Les théories de conspiration : les causes et les remèdes), dans lequel il soutient que le gouvernement devrait infiltrer furtivement les groupes présentant des théories alternatives sur des événements historiques par le biais des « forums de discussion, des réseaux sociaux en ligne ou même des groupes en espaces réels et tenter de miner » ces groupes.

À titre de directeur de l’Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, M. Sunstein est responsable de la « supervision des politiques liées à la vie privée, de la qualité de l’information et des programmes statistiques », selon le site Web de la Maison-Blanche.

M. Sunstein

L’article de M. Sunstein, publié dans le Journal of Political Philosphy en 2008 et découvert récemment par le blogueur Marc Estrin, stipule : « [N]otre principale affirmation est que les théories de conspiration découlent non pas de l’irrationalité ou de la maladie mentale, mais d’une “épistémologie invalide”, venant sous la forme d’un nombre extrêmement limité de sources informationnelles (pertinentes) ».

Par « épistémologie invalide », M. Sunstein veut dire que les personnes croyant aux théories de conspiration ont un nombre limité de sources d’information auxquelles elles font confiance. Par conséquent, M. Sunstein avance dans l’article que le simple fait de réfuter les théories de conspiration en public ne fonctionnerait pas : il faudrait infiltrer les sources mêmes en lesquelles les théoriciens de conspiration croient.

M. Sunstein, dont l’article se concentre largement sur les théories de conspiration du 11 septembre, suggère que le gouvernement « enrôle des représentants non gouvernementaux afin de réfuter ces théories. Cela pourrait garantir que ce sont des experts indépendants crédibles qui présentent la contestation plutôt que des administrateurs gouvernementaux. Il existe toutefois un compromis entre la crédibilité et le contrôle. Le prix de la crédibilité est que l’on ne peut pas voir que le gouvernement contrôle les experts indépendants.

Téléchargez l’article en PDF ici.

M. Sunstein a par ailleurs soutenu que « le gouvernement pourrait employer des tactiques (légales) pour briser les groupes cognitifs serrés qui mettent de l’avant des théories extrêmes ». Il a suggéré que les « agents du gouvernement (et leurs alliés) se joignent à des forums de discussion, à des réseaux sociaux en ligne ou même à des groupes en espaces réels et tentent de miner des théories de conspiration en propagation en soulevant des doutes à propos de leurs fondements factuels, de leur logique causale ou de leur incidence pour l’action politique ».

M. Estrin souligne que, M. Sunstein préconise l’infiltration de groupes « extrémistes » afin de saper la confiance de ces groupes au point où « les nouvelles recrues seront suspectes et les participants des réseaux virtuels de ces groupes douteront de la bonne foi l’un de l’autre ».

M. Sunstein « désire détenir des blogues et des hébergeurs Web responsables des remarques des commentateurs sur les sites Web, tout en changeant les lois sur la diffamation afin qu’il soit plus facile d’intenter un procès pour propagation de “rumeurs”, écrit Ed Lasky sur American Thinker.

Obama Executive Order Stokes Martial Law Fears

An Obama executive order that creates a council of state governors who will work with the feds to expand military involvement in domestic security has stoked fears that the administration is stepping up preparations for martial law.

The order, which is entitled Establishment of the Council of Governors (PDF), creates a body of ten state governors directly appointed by Obama who will work with the federal government to help advance the “synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States”.

The governors will liaise with officials from Northcom, Homeland Security, the National Guard as well as DoD officials from the Pentagon “in order to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State governments,” according to the executive order.

Conservatives and libertarians responded to the announcement by expressing their suspicion that Obama is preparing to give governors their marching orders in targeting “anti-government” types that have long been characterized as a terrorist threat by the feds in numerous reports stretching back over a decade.

“This is a concrete step toward eliminating the independent authority and dissolving the sovereignty of the several States. It lays the groundwork for the end of the United States as a Republic,” she adds.

Others warn that Obama could be preparing to cancel elections under the justification of a national emergency, a fear that was often expressed when Bush was in office but one that never materialized.

However, the executive order clearly represents another assault on Posse Comitatus, the 1878 law that bars the military from exercising domestic police powers, which was temporarily annulled by the 2006 John Warner National Defense Authorization Act before parts of it were later repealed.


It Is Now Official: The U.S. Is a Police State

There is no more complete or compelling evidence of a police state than the government announcing that it will murder its own citizens if it views them as a "threat."

Ironic, isn’t it, that "the war on terror" to make us safe ends in a police state with the government declaring the right to murder American citizens who it regards as a threat.


“The CIA Is Welcoming Itself Back onto American University Campuses”

In the latest edition of CounterPunch magazine, the anthropologist David Price reveals the US intelligence community has established academic outposts at twenty-two US universities over the past four years. Government agencies, including the CIA, FBI, National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, and Homeland Security, have helped found “Intelligence Community Centers for Academic Excellence,” or ICCAEs—pronounced “Icky.” The ICCAEs aim to create a “systematic long-term program at universities and colleges to recruit and hire eligible talent for [intelligence community] agencies and components” and “increase the [intelligence recruiting] pipeline of students.”

i.e. they are setting up COINTELPRO-style networks of informants.

Yemen rebels 'would accept conditional end to war'

The leader of the Shiite rebels in north Yemen said on Saturday in a message released on the Internet that he will accept the government's conditions to end the war if attacks against them cease.

I announce our acceptance of the (government's) five points, after the aggression stops," Abdel Malak al-Huthi said in an audio message released on the Internet. "The ball is now in the other party's court."

Webmaster's Commentary:

I hope to heck that Yemen's President Saleh and the US are listening, very carefully, to this offer.


Pentagon to Send More Special Forces Troops to Yemen

The Pentagon is assigning more special forces personnel to Yemen as part of a broad push to speed the training of the country's counterterror forces in the wake of the failed Christmas Day attack on a crowded U.S. airliner.

Military officials familiar with the matter said the U.S. will begin rotating the same groups of special forces personnel through Yemen and keeping some of the elite troops there for longer tours, changes designed to help the American trainers develop closer relationships with their Yemeni counterparts.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Great timing; just when the Shiite rebels in north Yemen have signaled that they would accept the government's conditions to end the war, what is the US doing?

Sending in more troops, of course!


The Merchants of Fear: Israel's Profiting from Homeland Insecurity

In the wake of the weird Christmas Day "underwear bomber" incident on Northwest Flight 253, former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff, as if on cue, was all over the mainstream media touting whole-body scanners as the answer to America's airline security problems. Since leaving public office in 2009, Chertoff had co-founded the Chertoff Group, a security and risk-management firm whose clients include a manufacturer of body-imaging screening machines. While some in the media noted this rather commonplace conflict of interest, ignored by all was a far more significant abuse of the American public's trust.


Exposed: Naked Body Scanner Images Of Film Star Printed, Circulated By Airport Staff

Claims on behalf of authorities that naked body scanner images are immediately destroyed after passengers pass through new x-ray backscatter devices have been proven fraudulent after it was revealed that naked images of Indian film star Shahrukh Khan were printed out and circulated by airport staff at Heathrow in London.

“I was a little scared. Something happens [inside the scans], and I came out. Then I saw these girls – they had these printouts. I looked at them. I thought they were some forms you had to fill. I said ‘give them to me’ – and you could see everything inside. So I autographed them for them,” stated Khan.

The story was carried by Yahoo News under the headline “Shah Rukh signs off sexy body-scan printouts at Heathrow”.

Khan’s reference to “girls” with printouts of his naked body scan can only refer to female airport security staff responsible for processing the images produced by the scanners, “professionals” who are supposed to instantly delete the images, according to Lord Adonis.

The revelation that airport security staff are completely abusing any notion of the professionalism promised by authorities by printing out and circulating images of naked body scans should set alarm bells ringing, especially in light of the fact that such images of minors break child pornography laws.


Scannergate: Facts Contradict Heathrow Claim That Naked Images Can’t Be Printed

Heathrow Airport’s denial that Indian film star Shahrukh Khan’s naked body scanner images were printed and circulated by airport staff because the devices have no capability to print or distribute images contradicts leaked government documents that prove the x-ray backscatter machines do have the option to store and send images, as well as actual images of the print outs that are freely available on the Internet.


Terror suspect allowed to keep visa by intelligence officials
January 27, 2010, Detroit News
http://detnews.com/article/20100127/NATION/1270405/Terror-suspect-kept-visa...

The State Department didn't revoke the visa of foiled terrorism suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab because federal counterterrorism officials had begged off revocation, a top State Department official revealed. Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab's visa wasn't taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist. "Revocation action would have disclosed what they were doing," Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Since the failed attack, criticism has swirled around leaders of the U.S. intelligence community who have indicated they were warned by the suspect's father about a month before the flight of a potential terror threat, but failed to stop Abdmutallab, despite other warning signs like the fact that he purchased a one-way ticket to Detroit with cash.

Note: So federal counterterrorism officials stopped the bomber's visa from being revoked. Hmmmm... Clearly there is more going on in this case than "failure to connect the dots." Why aren't other major media reporting this important story? Kurt Haskell, a key eyewitness passenger who almost lost his life, has written a powerfully revealing blog piece on what he thinks is really going on, available here. For more on this key case, click here.


THE TRUTH ABOUT FLIGHT 253 HAS BEEN REVEALED- By Kurt Haskell

"Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab's visa wasn't taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would've foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaida threats against the United States.

"Revocation action would've disclosed what they were doing," Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Allowing Adbulmutallab to keep the visa increased chances federal investigators would be able to get closer to apprehending the terror network he is accused of working with, "rather than simply knocking out one solider in that effort."'


Authorities Quietly Reverse Underwear Bomber Official Story

Authorities have quietly reversed the official story behind the Christmas Day underwear bomber attack and acknowledged that an accomplice was involved, despite weeks of denial and derision of eyewitness Kurt Haskell’s description of a sharp-dressed man who helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab board Flight 253 in Amsterdam.


Hidden in another story: federal agents now looking for crotchbomber's helper they denied existed

Federal agents also tell ABCNews.com they are attempting to identify a man who passengers said helped Abdulmutallab change planes for Detroit when he landed in Amsterdam from Lagos, Nigeria.

Authorities had initially discounted the passenger accounts, but the agents say there is a growing belief the man have played a role to make sure Abdulmutallab "did not get cold feet."


The Sharp Dressed Man Who Aided Mutallab Onto Flight 253 Was U.S. Government Agent

Please note that in the article that follows, I am not claiming that the U.S. Government knew Mutallab had a bomb or intended to hurt anyone on Flight 253 when the U.S. Government let him board.

Since our flight landed on Christmas Day, Lori and I have been doing everything in our power to uncover the truth about why we were almost blown up in the air over Detroit. The truth is now finally out after the publication of the following Detroit News article:

http://detnews.com/article/20100127/NATION/1270405/Terror-suspect-kept-visa-to-avoid-tipping-off-larger-investigation

Let me quote from the article:

“Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab’s visa wasn’t taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would’ve foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaida threats against the United States.

1/2 alex jones: du nouveau sur l'attentat raté du vol 253

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xc4cjc_1-2-alex-jones-du-nouveau-sur-l-att_news


Israeli mind-scanner may take over US airports

As part of stringent measures to beef up airport security, US authorities may use an Israeli-made mind-reading scanner that allegedly predicts whether a passenger is a potential threat or not.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"The scanner says that you do not support Israel, therefore we cannot allow you on the plane, citizen!"

Basically, this reads like a remote version of a polygraph, a machine notorious for false positives. Ordinary people might respond to photos of terroristic violence more than an individual who has lived their whole life in places like Gaza, and patsies might not recognize the symbols being projected. and the system described is totally useless on people with their noses in their brand-new shiny iPads!

"Security" (translation: Another excuse to pour money on Israel) is turning the airports into gauntlets for the passengers, which is why air travel has plunged in the last year, taking airline support industries and tourism with it.

It isn't terror that is destroying our way of life; it's security!

Obama quietly continues to defend Bush's terror policies
January 23, 2010, Denver Post/McClatchy News
http://www.denverpost.com/headlines/ci_14250508

Although the FBI has acknowledged it improperly obtained thousands of Americans' phone records for years, the Obama administration continues to assert that the bureau can obtain them without any formal legal process or court oversight. In further support of [this assertion] the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel backed the FBI in a written opinion issued this month. The opinion by the OLC — the section that wrote the memos that justified enhanced interrogation techniques during the last administration — appears to be yet another sign that the Obama administration can be just as assertive as Bush's in claiming sweeping and controversial anti-terrorism powers. "The FBI says that this kind of activity is in the past," said Michael German, a former FBI agent who's now the American Civil Liberties Union's policy counsel. "But if they're saying that they have a continuing legal authority that means it's not in the past." In another similarity to Bush era-legal decisions to keep legal theories under wraps, Obama's Justice Department refused to release to McClatchy the OLC opinion, despite the administration's vow to be more open than its predecessors.

On a appris récemment que le gouvernement prélève l'ADN des nouveaux nés et ce depuis les années 1960. Les parents ne sont pas consultés et des tests génétiques sont effectués.

The government has your baby's DNA

By Elizabeth Cohen, CNN Senior Medical Correspondent

February 4, 2010

(CNN) -- When Annie Brown's daughter, Isabel, was a month old, her pediatrician asked Brown and her husband to sit down because he had some bad news to tell them: Isabel carried a gene that put her at risk for cystic fibrosis.

While grateful to have the information -- Isabel received further testing and she doesn't have the disease -- the Mankato, Minnesota, couple wondered how the doctor knew about Isabel's genes in the first place. After all, they'd never consented to genetic testing.

It's simple, the pediatrician answered: Newborn babies in the United States are routinely screened for a panel of genetic diseases. Since the testing is mandated by the government, it's often done without the parents' consent, according to Brad Therrell, director of the National Newborn Screening & Genetics Resource Center.

In many states, such as Florida, where Isabel was born, babies' DNA is stored indefinitely, according to the resource center.

Many parents don't realize their baby's DNA is being stored in a government lab, but sometimes when they find out, as the Browns did, they take action. Parents in Texas, and Minnesota have filed lawsuits, and these parents' concerns are sparking a new debate about whether it's appropriate for a baby's genetic blueprint to be in the government's possession.

"We were appalled when we found out," says Brown, who's a registered nurse. "Why do they need to store my baby's DNA indefinitely? Something on there could affect her ability to get a job later on, or get health insurance."

According to the state of Minnesota's Web site, samples are kept so that tests can be repeated, if necessary, and in case the DNA is ever need to help parents identify a missing or deceased child. The samples are also used for medical research.

Art Caplan, a bioethicist at the University of Pennsylvania, says he understands why states don't first ask permission to screen babies for genetic diseases. "It's paternalistic, but the state has an overriding interest in protecting these babies," he says.

However, he added that storage of DNA for long periods of time is a different matter.

"I don't see any reason to do that kind of storage," Caplan says. "If it's anonymous, then I don't care. I don't have an issue with that. But if you keep names attached to those samples, that makes me nervous."

DNA given to outside researchers

Genetic testing for newborns started in the 1960s with testing for diseases and conditions that, if undetected, could kill a child or cause severe problems, such as mental retardation. Since then, the screening has helped save countless newborns.

Over the years, many other tests were added to the list. Now, states mandate that newborns be tested for anywhere between 28 and 54 different conditions, and the DNA samples are stored in state labs for anywhere from three months to indefinitely, depending on the state. (To find out how long your baby's DNA is stored, see this state-by-state list.)

Brad Therrell, who runs the federally funded genetic resource consortium, says parents don't need to worry about the privacy of their babies' DNA.

"The states have in place very rigid controls on those specimens," Therrell says. "If my children's DNA were in one of these state labs, I wouldn't be worried a bit."

The specimens don't always stay in the state labs. They're often given to outside researchers -- sometimes with the baby's name attached.

According to a study done by the state of Minnesota, more than 20 scientific papers have been published in the United States since 2000 using newborn blood samples.

The researchers do not have to have parental consent to obtain samples as long as the baby's name is not attached, according to Amy Gaviglio, one of the authors of the Minnesota report. However, she says it's her understanding that if a researcher wants a sample with a baby's name attached, consent first must be obtained from the parents.

Scientists have heralded this enormous collection of DNA samples as a "gold mine" for doing research, according to Gaviglio.

"This sample population would be virtually impossible to get otherwise," says Gaviglio, a genetic counselor for the Minnesota Department of Health. "Researchers go through a very stringent process to obtain the samples. States certainly don't provide samples to just anyone."

Brown says that even with these assurances, she still worries whether someone could gain access to her baby's DNA sample with Isabel's name attached.

"I know the government says my baby's data will be kept private, but I'm not so sure. I feel like my trust has been taken," she says.

Parents don't give consent to screening

Brown says she first lost trust when she learned that Isabel had received genetic testing in the first place without consent from her or her husband.

"I don't have a problem with the testing, but I wish they'd asked us first," she says.

Since health insurance paid for Isabel's genetic screening, her positive test for a cystic fibrosis gene is now on the record with her insurance company, and the Browns are concerned this could hurt her in the future.

"It's really a black mark against her, and there's nothing we can do to get it off there," Brown says. "And let's say in the future they can test for a gene for schizophrenia or manic-depression and your baby tests positive -- that would be on there, too."

Brown says if the hospital had first asked her permission to test Isabel, now 10 months old, she might have chosen to pay for it out of pocket so the results wouldn't be known to the insurance company.

Caplan says taking DNA samples without asking permission and then storing them "veers from the norm."

"In the military, for instance, they take and store DNA samples, but they tell you they're doing it, and you can choose not to join if you don't like it," he says.


Israeli Scientists Show DNA Evidence Can be Fabricated

Scientists from the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company Nucleix have demonstrated that it is possible to create fake DNA samples and plant them as evidence at a crime scene, in a paper published in the journal Forensic Science: International Genetics.

"You can just engineer a crime scene," said lead researcher and Nucleix co-founder Dan Frumkin. "Any biology undergraduate could perform this."

Three Approved GMO Crops Linked to Organ Damage, New Study Shows

(NaturalNews) Genetically Modified crops (or GM) are genetically modified organisms (GMO) that have been altered to meet a specific profile. They have also been the subject of controversy almost since their introduction two decades ago. A new study pinpoints three variations of GM corn (maize) as being linked to organ damage in mammals.

The three varieties in question are Mon 810, Mon 863, and NK 603. The "Mon" is for, you guessed it, Monsanto and the NK is also a Monsanto product, being engineered for herbicide tolerance. The study was conducted by the Committee of Research and Information on Genetic Engineering (CRIIGEN) and the Universities of Caen and Rouen in France.1

The study used the same data that was used by Monsanto to gain approval in several parts of the world. The data was released publicly in 2005 by European authorities when the three GM strains were approved for human consumption in both the U.S. and Europe.

Gilles-Eric Seralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen and one of the principals in the study, says that the data "clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system."

Each of the three strains produced differing amounts of adverse impact, but the impact on vital organs was universal for all three GM crops.

The study was completed in December 2009 and appears in the International Journal of Biological Sciences1 (IJBS). It conforms with and substantiates an earlier study done by CRIIGEN in 2007 on Mon 863.2 The results of that study were rejected by Monsanto.3

Michelle Obama announces 'obesity' a threat to national security...

Webmaster's Commentary:

Does that mean Blackwater will start assassinating anyone over their "ideal" weight??

(CNSNews.com) – At a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, First Lady Michelle Obama announced the launch of the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign to end childhood obesity in the United States, an epidemic she said is costly and a threat to national security.

“A recent study put the health care cost of obesity-related diseases at $147 billion a year,” Mrs. Obama said. “This epidemic also impacts the nation’s security, as obesity is now one of the most common disqualifiers for military service.”


Presidential assassinations of U.S. citizens

Just think about this for a minute. Barack Obama, like George Bush before him, has claimed the authority to order American citizens murdered based solely on the unverified, uncharged, unchecked claim that they are associated with Terrorism and pose "a continuing and imminent threat to U.S. persons and interests." They're entitled to no charges, no trial, no ability to contest the accusations.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The entire system, which we used to call "due process" in the US, has just been shoved under the proverbial bus.


License to Kill? Intelligence Chief Says U.S. Can Take Out American Terrorists
February 3, 2010, ABC News

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/license-kill-intelligence-chief...

The director of national intelligence affirmed rather bluntly today that the U.S. intelligence community has authority to target American citizens for assassination if they present a direct terrorist threat to the United States. "We take direct actions against terrorists in the intelligence community; if we think that direct action will involve killing an American, we get specific permission to do that," Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair told the House Intelligence Committee. "Whether that American is involved in a group that is trying to attack us, whether that American ... is a threat to other Americans. Those are the factors involved." Blair explained. According to U.S. officials, only a handful of Americans would be eligible for targeting by U.S. intelligence or military operations. The DNI said that Internet and social media sites have become critical to terrorism recruitment efforts. "The homegrown radicalization of people in the United States is a relatively new thing." Blair said U.S. intelligence was rapidly working to counter the emerging problem.

Secret detention may amount to crime against humanity: UN experts

UN human rights experts warned in a report on Wednesday that "widespread and systematic" secret detention of terror suspects was continuing and could pave the way for charges of crimes against humanity.


Jewish Auschwitz Survivor Gives True Definition of Anti-Semitism


Jewish Auschwitz Survivor Gives True Definition of Anti-Semitism
“Formerly an anti-Semite was someone who hated Jews…nowadays an anti-Semite is somebody who is hated by Jews.” – Dr. Hajo Meyer.

Read a fascinating article about Dr. Hajo Meyer in Scotland Herald
Pre-Commentary –The following is from The Herald newspaper in Scotland (24 Jan. 2010). It quotes Dr. Hajo Meyer, 86, a Jewish professor who survived internment in Auschwitz for 10 months during the Second World War. Meyer was a captured underground fighter, much like another saboteur: Simon Wiesenthal. Even though by the Geneva accords, the Germans could have legally executed Meyer and Wiesenthal, they didn’t. In fact, the Germans nursed Wiesenthal back to health after his suicide attempt. Of course, these facts don’t quite fit with the core Holocaust allegation that the Germans were determined to exterminate all the Jews in Europe. One historian put it this way, “If the Germans couldn’t even kill these two Jewish underground, behind the lines, saboteurs and terrorists, they must have been impossibly inept in their plans for a ‘final solution’.”
Dr. Meyer could have parlayed his Auschwitz survival story to hero status among the Jewish people. He would today enjoy all the accolades and the financial reward that the Jewish-dominated media could offer. Instead, Dr. Meyer has shown incredible courage by speaking out against Jewish extremism, Jewish hate; and the Jewish torture, murder and oppression of the Palestinian people. For speaking the truth, this former fighter against the Nazis and survivor of Auschwitz has been labeled an “anti-Semite” by leading Jewish organizations.
As someone who has also been labeled as an “anti-Semite” by the same ilk, I greatly sympathize with Dr. Meyer. For we live in a world where one can condemn Muslim extremism, Christian extremism, every kind of extremism, but not Jewish extremism. In truth, the State of Israel was founded and exists on Jewish extremism. It was founded on principles of Jewish ethnic supremacism which is the core teaching of Judaism, and it was created by massive violence, terror and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people. If one exposes and opposes the elements of supremacism and hatred found Judaism, Zionism and the State of Israel, that truth teller is the one who will be called a “hater.”

Obama Administration: Critics Are Aiding Al Qaeda

You’re either with Obama, or you’re with the terrorists.


Price of US Wars: $1 Trillion and Rising

The Congressional Budget Office’s newly released budget outlook notes that Congress has approved over $1 trillion in direct spending on wars and war-related activities since 2001, and that price tag is only getting higher as the wars drag on.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Yet defense spending is the only area where it appears President Obama refuses to cut funds.


Pentagon Confronts Russia In The Baltic Sea

Persistent U.S. and NATO military moves are threatening to turn the Baltic Sea region into a powder keg that another hostile encounter between Western and Russian military aircraft could ignite at any time.

As to government officials and the news media in Russia, a year is a sufficiently long period of time to awaken from the illusion of an imaginative rest button that will reverse a decade of NATO penetration of the Baltic Sea and the consolidation of military infrastructure there aimed squarely - and exclusively - at their own nation.

Webmaster's Commentary:

It has been made painfully obvious that this administration - and NATO -have made the decision that Russia is the enemy, and are making every bone-headed effort possible to reinforce that stance with military muscle.


Obama Makes Clear that Missile Shield is About Russia, not Iran

Obama last night made clear what the missile shield in Eastern Europe is really about. While the Bush administration claimed that the missile shield was about dealing with a threat from Iran, Obama has made it clear that it is about a threat from Russia, or at least a perceived threat. Having scrapped the plan for a missile shield in Eastern Europe last September, it is now back on the table with missiles set to be deployed in Poland as early as March or April of this year. The missiles will be within 35 miles of the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which makes clear that this is geographically about dealing with a perceived Russian threat to Eastern Europe, rather than an Iranian threat to the West. This is not about Iran, this is about Russia, and the Cold War lives on.

Webmaster's Commentary:

And the military manufacturers are salivating, because they know what "gravy days" for their industries this kind of policy can create.


Obama’s Secret Prisons

Sometime in the last few years, Pashtun villagers in Afghanistan’s rugged heartland began to lose faith in the American project. Many of them can point to the precise moment of this transformation, and it usually took place in the dead of the night, when most of the country was fast asleep. In the secretive U.S. detentions process, suspects are usually nabbed in the darkness and then sent to one of a number of detention areas on military bases, often on the slightest suspicion and without the knowledge of their families.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Afghans do not hate us "because we are free".


Obama effectively ends U.S.-manned space flight

Unfortunately, with the stroke of the budgetary pen, President Barack Obama has gutted NASA’s budget, ending the nascent moon mission and pounding a major nail into the coffin of U.S.-manned space exploration. The space shuttle program has only five more missions before its retirement. After that, Americans will reach the International Space Station aboard Russian Soyuz capsules until 2020. Beyond that, there are no plans for Americans to return to space. Don’t worry, though, Obama assures us that NASA will have enough cash to keep doing research into the bogus science of man-made global warming.

Webmaster's Commentary:

... and to build bigger and better bombs.


US Rejects Treaty to End Korean War

US officials today rejected the latest North Korean call to sign a peace treaty, saying that they are “not going to pay North Korea to come back to the six-party talks.”

North Korea abandoned the talks in early 2009 after the US pressed an additional round of condemnations against them through the UN Security Council. Shortly thereafter, North Korea successfully tested a nuclear weapon.

North Korean officials have repeatedly floated the proposal for a formal peace treaty to end the 60 years of war with the United States over the past month, but US officials have said they will never accept normal relations with North Korea unless they abandon all nuclear technology and make dramatic changes to their human rights treatment.

The Korean War began in June, 1950, and led to the deaths of hunders of thousands of soldiers and millions of civilians. Though the two sides signed a truce that has held for over half a century, they remain in a state of war and the United States continues to have tens of thousands of troops along the border with North Korea.


DND, RCMP mum on UFO mystery

People who saw a missile-like object soaring through the sky over a small rural community in Newfoundland Monday night are getting no answers about what it was, although police say they'd gotten to the bottom of the mystery.

Webmaster's Commentary:

People living near New York's Long Island were seeing much the same thing in 1996. It turned out to be classified live-fire tests of a US Navy anti-missile system called Aegis-CEC.

It was all hush-hush, and "Don't complain; it's National Defense" for a while.

Then they had a "Whoopsie!" : In 1996 TWA Flight 800 was shot down south of Long Island.

The government of the United States, despite the embarrassment of having been caught in court rigging lab tests and lying in its reports, still officially attributes the disaster to a spark in the center fuel tank, while government spokespeople insist that the witnesses who saw a missile hit the jumbo jet are all drunks.


Mars Spirit rover gives up the ghost as Nasa abandons space vehicle in sand trap

After spending six years trundling across across the rocky surface of the Red Planet, the Mars rover Spirit has finally given up the ghost.

The Nasa rover has driven five miles over plains, plateaus and even up a mountain as tall as the Statue of Liberty.

But now the U.S space agency has conceded defeat after repeated attempts to free it from a sand pit where it has been stuck for the last nine months.


Swine flu taskforce's links to vaccine giant: More than half the experts fighting the 'pandemic' have ties to drug firms
January 14, 2010, Daily Mail (One of the UK's largest-circulation newspapers)
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1243034/Swine-flu-taskforces-links...

More than half the scientists on the swine flu taskforce advising the [UK] Government have ties to drug companies. Eleven of the 20 members of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) have done work for the pharmaceutical industry or are linked to it through their universities. Many have declared interests in GlaxoSmithKline, the vaccine maker expected to be the biggest beneficiary of the pandemic. The disclosure of the register of interests comes just days after a health expert branded the swine flu outbreak a 'false pandemic' driven by the drug companies which stood to profit. The Government is now trying to offload up to £1billion worth of unwanted swine flu vaccine. Last July, the Department of Health warned of up 65,000 deaths, with 350 a day at the pandemic's peak. But the death toll now stands at just 251. SAGE was created to give Ministers recommendations on how to control and treat the virus. Official documents show some members are linked to vaccine manufacturer Baxter and to Roche, which makes Tamiflu. GSK, Baxter and Roche stand to make up to £1.5billion between them from Government contracts related to swine flu.

Drug firms 'drove swine flu pandemic warning to recoup £billions spent on research'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1246370/Drug-firms-drove-swine-flu-pandemic-warning-recoup-billions-spent-research.html

An inquiry heard yesterday that the WHO allegedly softened its criteria for declaring a H1N1 flu pandemic last spring - just weeks before announcing there was a worldwide outbreak.

Critics said the decision was driven by pharmaceutical companies desperate to recoup the billions of pounds they had invested in researching and developing pandemic vaccines after the bird flu scares in 2006 and 2007.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Unflipping believable, but perfectly predictable.


WHO Scientist: Swine Flu Pandemic Was “Completely Exaggerated”

A scientist with the World Health Organisation has testified, during ongoing hearings in Strasbourg, France, that the swine flu pandemic was part of an overblown “angst campaign”, devised in conjunction with major drug companies to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers.


Obama received $20 million from healthcare industry in 2008 campaign

While some sunlight has been shed on the hefty sums shoveled into congressional campaign coffers in an effort to influence the Democrats' massive healthcare bill, little attention has been focused on the far larger sums received by President Barack Obama while he was a candidate in 2008.

A new figure, based on an exclusive analysis created for Raw Story by the Center for Responsive Politics, shows that President Obama received a staggering $20,175,303 from the healthcare industry during the 2008 election cycle, nearly three times the amount of his presidential rival John McCain. McCain took in $7,758,289, the Center found.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Which is why the only real result of Obamacare is to force you all to buy health insurance.


One quarter of US grain crops fed to cars - not people, new figures show
January 22, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jan/22/quarter-us-grain-biofuels-food

One-quarter of all the maize and other grain crops grown in the US now ends up as biofuel in cars rather than being used to feed people, according to new analysis which suggests that the biofuel revolution launched by former President George Bush in 2007 is impacting on world food supplies. The 2009 figures from the US Department of Agriculture shows ethanol production rising to record levels driven by farm subsidies and laws which require vehicles to use increasing amounts of biofuels. "The grain grown to produce fuel in the US [in 2009] was enough to feed 330 million people for one year at average world consumption levels," said Lester Brown, the director of the Earth Policy Institute, a Washington thinktank ithat conducted the analysis. According to Brown, the growing demand for US ethanol derived from grains helped to push world grain prices to record highs between late 2006 and 2008. In 2008, the Guardian revealed a secret World Bank report that concluded that the drive for biofuels by American and European governments had pushed up food prices by 75%, in stark contrast to US claims that prices had risen only 2-3% as a result. Since then, the number of hungry people in the world has increased to over 1 billion people, according to the UN's World Food programme.

The Real Reason Hemp is Illegal

William Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst's grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.

In 1937, Dupont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. Dupont's Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80% of Dupont's business.


Easier to find oil

Researchers at KTH have been able to prove that the fossils of animals and plants are not necessary to generate raw oil and natural gas. This result is extremely radical as it means that it will be much easier to find these energy sources and that they may be located all over the world.

Doctor claims he has evidence of the afterlife
January 20, 2010, MSNBC
http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/34953759/ns/today-today_people?gt1=43001/from

A clinical psychologist, [Mary Jo] Rapini had long worked with terminal cancer patients. When they told her of their near-death experiences, she would often chalk their stories up as a reaction to their pain medication. But in April 2003, she faced her own mortality. She suffered an aneurysm while working out [in] a gym and was rushed to the hospital. She was in an intensive care unit for three days when she took a turn for the worse. “All of a sudden [doctors] were rushing around me and inserting things into me, and they called my husband,” she [said]. “I looked up and I saw this light; it wasn’t a normal light, it was different. It was luminescent. And it grew. I kept looking at it like, ‘What is that?’ Then it grew large and I went into it. I went into this tunnel, and I came into this room that was just beautiful. God held me, he called me by name, and he told me, ‘Mary Jo, you can’t stay.’ And he said, ‘Let me ask you one thing — have you ever loved another the way you’ve been loved here?’ And I said, ‘No, it’s impossible. I’m a human.’ And then he just held me and said, ‘You can do better.’ ” While Rapini’s account may seem far-fetched, [Dr. Jeffrey] Long [in his book Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences] says her recollections mirror nearly all stories of near-death experiences.


Irak:

Enquête primée par « Projet Censuré »
Plus d’un million d’Irakiens tués sous l’occupation US

Nous reproduisons ici la première des 25 enquêtes primées par « Projet Censuré » en 2009. Il s’agit du travail de Michael Schwartz, que nous avions diffusé en 2007, et que Joshua Holland, Luke Baker, Maki al-Nazzal et Dahr Jamail ont poursuivi. Plusieurs sources officielles permettent de valider les études des sondeurs d’ORB et des démographes du « Lancet » et d’établir que l’invasion anglo-saxonne et l’occupation de l’Irak ont causé la mort de plus d’un million de civils. Cette information, qui a été relayée par les médias dans les Etats dont les gouvernement s’opposaient à la guerre, a été ignorée par les médias des Etats soutenant l’opération anglo-saxonne. Une fois de plus, il apparaît que les consortium médiatiques s’alignent sur les intérêts dominants du pays où ils se trouvent.

Synthèse

Plus de 1,2 million d’Irakiens ont succombé à une mort violente depuis l’invasion du pays en 2003, d’après une étude du prestigieux institut britannique de sondage Opinion Research Business (ORB). Ces chiffres suggèrent que les décès provoquées par l’invasion et l’occupation de l’Irak rivalisent en nombre avec les massacres massifs du XXe siècle —le nombre de personnes tuées en Irak dépasse les 800 000 à 900 000 victimes du génocide du Rwanda, en 1994, et se rapproche d’ores déjà du chiffre de 1,7 million de disparus dans les tristement célèbres « camps de la mort » des Khmers rouges, dans les années 70 du siècle dernier—.
