Irak:


Anti-war protesters take to streets, defy US indifference

Thousands of anti-war protesters took to the streets of the US capital Saturday, on the seventh anniversary of the US-led war in Iraq in a show of frustration widely ignored by the media and public.

As the National Marathon wound down in the city, protesters after midday gathered outside the White House bearing signs alluding to the high cost of the war both in money and human lives and decrying the use of unmanned aircraft, or drones, to bomb US enemies.


Anti-War Rally, March 20 - San Francisco

Cindy Sheehan arrested at D.C. protest 3/20/10

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zorYcThQaF4&feature=player_embedded


CINDY SHEEHAN’S ARREST ~~ IN HER OWN WORDS

As soon as I crossed the barrier, I was slammed by a couple of cops, handcuffed and then actually run around the front of the White House while the cops tried to find a paddy wagon to stick me in—about 50 people were running with the cop and I, yelling: “Let her go, let her go.” When the officer and I finally got to the paddy wagon, I was surprised to find that only two others had followed me. One other crossed the line to bring our detained numbers up to eight.


US may try Sheehan for anti-war campaign

http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=121463&sectionid=3510203

US authorities have arrested a number of anti-war protesters, including high-profile activist Cindy Sheehan, during a demonstration in Washington DC.

Sheehan, who has been and anti-war campaigner since she lost a son in the Iraq war, may stand trial, reports indicate.

Webmaster's Commentary:

A short memo to the Obama administration: if it is true that you are actually dense enough to attempt to bring Cindy Sheehan to trial, what charges would be made against her?

That she exercised her First Amendment rights, under the Constitution, of free speech and free assembly?!?

Making a martyr out of this woman and her movement will absolutely invigorate every bit of anti-war sentiment which exists in this country, and that sentiment is growing exponentially by the millisecond.

Thinking people understand that we were lied in to the war with Iraq because of the potential for private profit from the oil.

They also understand that the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan were to produce two outcomes, also for private profit; the installation of pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil, and the control of the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

People are furious that their sons, daughters, precious family and friends, our brave young men and women in uniform, have fought, died, or gotten maimed for life in military operations which have absolutely nothing to do with the safety and security of the United States, but everything to do with private profit.

That is not what these young men and women signed up for, when they volunteered to join the US military.

And if our physically or mentally wounded Vets did, by some miracle manage to make it home, sick to death with depleted uranium poisoning, or maimed for life, the same government which cavalierly sent them into harm's way for private profit, found most of them completely expendable when they got back.


The US military may set up an additional headquarters in Iraqi Kurdistan

US military may set up an additional headquarters in northern Iraq even after Washington scales back its forces by a September deadline, a top US general said on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Imagine my (absolute absence of) surprise!!

We may be well in Iraq indefinitely.


Depleted Uranium: A War Crime Within a War Crime

As if destroying a country and its culture ain't bad enough, how about destroying its future, its children? I want to scream it from the rooftops!
Since 1991, the U.S. has released the radioactive atomicity equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs into the global atmosphere. That is 10 times the amount released during atmospheric testing which was the equivalent of 40,000 Hiroshima bombs. The U.S. has permanently contaminated the global atmosphere with radioactive pollution having a half-life of 2.5 billion years.



Afghanistan:


Taliban fighters training in Iran, U.S. officials say

http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/meast/03/23/iran.taliban/index.html?hpt=T2

Iran is helping train Taliban fighters within its borders, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Translation: The latest escalation in Afghanistan has turned into a disaster for the US and they need somebody to blame for it.


U.S. Turns a Blind Eye to Opium in Afghan Town

The effort to win over Afghans on former Taliban turf in Marja has put American and NATO commanders in the unusual position of arguing against opium eradication, pitting them against some Afghan officials who are pushing to destroy the harvest.

From Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal on down, the military’s position is clear: “U.S. forces no longer eradicate,” as one NATO official put it. Opium is the main livelihood of 60 to 70 percent of the farmers in Marja, which was seized from Taliban rebels in a major offensive last month. American Marines occupying the area are under orders to leave the farmers’ fields alone.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Translation: American and NATO commanders have not been put"... in the unusual position of arguing against opium eradication."

The control and distribution of Afghan drugs, from which so many profit so handsomely, was one of the expected outcomes of the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

And please note that before the US/NATO invasion and occupation, the Taliban had managed to almost completely eradicate opium poppy production.

Do you believe that it was merely coincidence that after the US and NATO invaded Afghanistan, opium production soared?!?

As reported in:

http://hubpages.com/hub/Afghanistan-Opium

"The spread of opium has not been curtailed since the United States invaded Afghanistan. In fact, the spread of opium, which is typically processed into heroin, has actually increased since the United States invaded Afghanistan. “In 2004, according to the United Nations, opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan rose by two-thirds, climbing to 320,000 acres and producing a yield of 4,200 metric tons (a metric ton equals 2,205 pounds)” (Williams, 2005, p. 58)"

This exponential growth can hardly be attributed to "coincidence".

And when the drug trade is controlled, where the drugs wind up is also controlled.

In fact, that part of the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan is working so magnificently well that, as reported on 12 March 2010 in:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/afghanistan/2010-03-12-russia-us-nato_N.htm

"Russia's envoy to NATO has sharply criticized the alliance's shift away from fighting drug trafficking in Afghanistan, saying the resulting surge in heroin smuggling is endangering Russia's national security."

"(Russia) is losing 30,000 lives a year to the Afghan drug trade, and a million people are addicts," Rogozin said. "This is an undeclared war against our country."

Rogozin is absolutely correct in his assessment.


U.S. may expand use of its prison in Afghanistan

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-afghan-prison21-2010mar21,0,2058216.story

The White House is considering whether to detain international terrorism suspects at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, senior U.S. officials said, an option that would lead to another prison with the same purpose as Guantanamo Bay, which it has promised to close.

The idea, which would require approval by President Obama, already has drawn resistance from within the government. Army Gen. Stanley A. McCrystal, the top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, and other senior officials strongly oppose it, fearing that expansion of the U.S. detention facility at Bagram air base could make the job of stabilizing the country even tougher.

That the option of detaining suspects captured outside Afghanistan at Bagram is being contemplated reflects a recognition by the Obama administration that it has few other places to hold and interrogate foreign prisoners without giving them access to the U.S. court system, the officials said.

Without a location outside the United States for sending prisoners, the administration must resort to turning the suspects over to foreign governments, bringing them to the U.S. or even killing them.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Out of sight, out of mind (for most of the American public) and out of reach of any civil liberties the US law is supposed to provide; how magnificently convenient for this government!



Palestine:


Disturbing findings of toxic uranium levels in Gaza

http://uruknet.info/index.php?p=m64400&hd=&size=1&l=e

Studies conducted by a group of Italian researchers have revealed the presence of dangerous levels of toxins in the bodies of Palestinian victims of Israeli bombings during operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009. The results of tests conducted on a sample of 15 dead and wounded victims of the war on Gaza, in addition to another sample of 95 citizens, showed the presence of 30 toxic components, notably high levels of uranium. A senior Ministry of Health official in Gaza, Medhat Abbas, confirmed the findings during a press conference last Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Warning: the disclaimer at the top of the article about disturbing images is absolutely correct.

But please, take a good look at what your tax dollars are buying in terms of the Israeli IDF's use of toxic chemicals against Palestinian citizens.

Imagine, for one moment, that the people here were your family, your friends, your loved ones.

Then imagine what you would think of a government and military that would resort to using these kinds of chemical weapons against a civilian population.

Joseph Mengele would have been proud of this kind of treatment of the "inferior others" by his government.

How bitterly ironic that so many of those in the Israeli government and IDF are direct descendants of those who survived the Holocaust in Germany.



Israël:


Video: Human Shield Story: US activist Rachel Corrie remembered in film

Seven years ago American peace activist Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protesting against the demolition of Palestinian homes in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This young woman should never be forgotten by anyone in the world who believes in the values of justice and peace.


Israeli education ministry censors Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The office of the minister of education forbade distributing a booklet for kids about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, because it didn’t like two articles in the declaration, as well as some of the illustration in the booklet.

These two articles are as follows:

"Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution." (Article 14)

"Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance." (Article 18)

Webmaster's Commentary:

Unflipping believable, but completely predictable.


Lebanese army fires on Israeli warplanes: military

Lebanese anti-aircraft guns opened fire on two Israeli warplanes that were violating its airspace at medium altitude on Sunday, the military said.

The incident came amid rising regional tension and heightened concern in Lebanon over recent Israeli threats against Shiite militant party Hezbollah and its backers Syria and Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel is itching to get back into Lebanon, and is doing its level best to provoke a nasty military response which will give them the "justification" for another all-out attack.

If they get what they are looking for, this time, they will go all the way to the Litani River, because they desperately need the water resources.


Leaked Zionist strategy Paper to counter BDS

Here is a leaked copy of the Zionist plan to attack the Boycott and Divestment Campaign Against Israel's Occupation and to strategy to shut down the debate on the Palestinian issue and to shift it discussion of anti-Semitism and not Israel's illegal Occuption and illegal settlements and human rights violations.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Translation: Israel's supporters should start painting swastikas everywhere because Israel really needs sympathy right now!


The US' Choreographed "Outrage" At Israel

Israel's announcement came on the same day that Biden had arrived in the country to proudly confirm the US' "absolute, total and unvarnished" commitment to its ally, and commence indirect talks with the Palestinians. Following the announcement, protests and violent clashes broke out in Jerusalem and elsewhere throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

The US hopes that this pretended outrage will lend its role as “honest broker” enough credibility to keep the “peace process” moving, itself merely a PR facade that shields Israeli crimes from public scrutiny. If it does not, the US will undoubtedly pay little mind to the harsh words spoken this week and do as it has done before: blame the Palestinians for its failure and support Israeli repression.


Holocaust Memorials DEFACED With Anti-Semitic Slurs

Webmaster's Commentary:

And right on time, JUST when Israel needs to pump sympathy and cry "anti-Semitism" as the EU endorses the Goldstone Report and the US dares express anger with Israel for Israel's humiliation of Joe Biden. A leaked strategy paper detailing Israel's plan to counter the growing public relations crisis and the boycott/divestment going on was to USE THE COVER OF ANTISEMITISM. And sure enough, what better way to buiold sympathy for Israel than to drag out the swastikas yet again!

How do we know this is yet another hate crime hoax? Well, mostly because when the painters of swastika get caught, they turn out to be Jewish, playing for sympathy.

But more to the point, nobody cares about the @#$%ing swastika any more except Israel! The Nazis are dead and gone; their regalia little more than curios and museum pieces collecting dist in dark corners. Only Israel still attaches any importance to Swastikas; they have become Israel's trademarked logo for the "You should feel sorry for us while we do to Gaza exactly what the Nazis did to Warsaw" advertising campaign!

It is predictable and inevitable. Every time Israel's actions get it into political trouble. out come the swastikas again, to trick the world back into feeling sorry for tiny little helpless nuclear-armed and very rich on YOUR tax dollars Israel, trembling in fear of attack from the people whose homes Israel steals every single day and whose children wither under the rain of white phosphorus.


Yad Vashem ramping up effort to combat Holocaust denial

To demonstrate the creeping impact of Holocaust denial, Ephraim Kaye urges a simple Google search. Type in the word “Holocaust” and see what pops up.

“Of the first 60 hits, a third are of Holocaust deniers,” Kaye says. “It’s out there and we cannot stop it.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

"Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma." -- Michael Rivero

The fact is that conspiracies to lie to the public to trick them into supporting a political agenda not only exist, they are common everyday occurrences whether it is Global Warming or Saddam's "Nooks."

At the close of World War 2 the Zionists faced a formidable public relations problem. The world had just united against Hitler on the principle that one nation doe snot have a right to simply march into another nation and steal if for their own use.

And yet that is exact;y what the founders of Israel were planning to do, to match into Palestine and steal it for Israel.

The Zionists' task was to convince the world that what Germany could not be allowed to do to Poland, Israel must be allowed to do to Palestine. The Zionists needed a public relations tool powerful enough to trick the rest of the world into abandoning the very principles they had spent so much blood and gold on.

So, the slave-labor camps of the Nazis were propagandized into death camps; their enslaved populations portrayed as primarily Jewish, delousing became gassing, and the entire grizzly horror story decorated with hoaxes about soap made from human fat, lampshades made from human skin, mysterious electrical rays that caused bodies to vanish, and so forth. Rudolph Hoess was beaten into "confessing" how Jews were deliberately exterminated at Camp Walzcak.

So the world, ignoring Hitler's warning about falling for the "Big Lie", stood hack and allowed Israel to do to Palestine what Hitler was crushed for doing to Poland and France, etc. Indeed Israel's crimes against the Palestinians continue to this very day, protected from the world's condemnation by endless Hollywood images of the orthodox tale of WW2.

But time makes ancient truth uncouth. We know that Ramses II lied when he carved his temples to show a victory over the Hittites at Kadesh. We know that JBL lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin. We know Bush lied about Saddam's 'nooks." We know IPCC and CRU are lying about human-caused global warming.

The great lies of history rarely survive for very long outside their own time.

Laboratory tests show the soap supposedly made from human fat contains very little fat, and that it came from pigs (a major embarrassment for all those graveyards that gave bars of soap funerals). Lab test showed the lampshades were made from goats. The shrunken heads displayed as trophies made by death camp commanders turned out to be souvenirs from South America totally unrelated to Hitler's time. There was no magic electrical machine that made bodies vanish. Ground penetrating radar shows no mass graves at Treblinka. Zyklon-B is an insecticide. The crematorium at Auschwitz was built AFTER the war to deal with the still-raging Typhus epidemics which were the real cause of the death and emaciation at the German camps. And the Camp Walczak testified to by Hoess never existed.

Although we are brainwashed from birth to always tell the truth, the reality is that we live in an age of lies told by our leaders to control us, loot us, molest our children, and then send them off to die in pointless wars of conquest.


Israel 'to unveil plans to build nuclear power plant'

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8556266.stm

Israel is expected to unveil plans this week to build a nuclear power plant, reports say.

They say an announcement will be made by Israeli Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau at an energy forum in Paris.

Israel is facing a crisis over electricity supplies, but environmental objections have blocked efforts to build a new coal-fired plant.

Israel has two nuclear reactors, including the Dimona facility which is said to have produced nuclear weapons.

The secret reactor is located in the south of the country. Israel neither confirms nor denies having nuclear weapons under its policy of "ambiguity".

The other facility is a research reactor near Tel Aviv, which is open to international inspections.

Israel is not a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which is designed to curb the spread of nuclear technologies with bomb-making potential.

'Joint project'

Mr Landau is expected to tell the conference in Paris that Israel is considering building a nuclear power plant, reports say.

He has reportedly discussed the possibility of co-operating in the project with French Energy Minister Jean-Louis Borloo, together with neighbouring Jordan.

France is one of the world leaders in electricity production from nuclear power.

In the 1950s, Paris helped Israel to build the Dimona facility.


Israel's Chronological Nuclear Profile

This annotated chronology is based on the data sources that follow each entry. Public sources often provide conflicting information on classified military programs. In some cases we are unable to resolve these discrepancies, in others we have deliberately refrained from doing so to highlight the potential influence of false or misleading information as it appeared over time. In many cases, we are unable to independently verify claims. Hence in reviewing this chronology, readers should take into account the credibility of the sources employed here.


Rabbi Feldman: Zionism is "Illegitimate Political Movement"

The political creed of Zionism has big ears and a long trunk and I think it's time that was pointed out. It also stampedes through our lives at every level and that needs to be said, too.

It has created a pincer-movement on the human mind by hijacking staggering amounts of political, corporate, banking and media power on one side and by using the fear of being called 'anti-Semitic' if you dare to state the bloody obvious.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWRX_OFOV08

On Friday, Jan. 2, 2009, Human Rights activists staged a demonstration and march, in Washington, D.C., in solidarity with the beleaguered Palestinian people of Israeli-Occupied Gaza. The rally began at the Israeli Embassy. One of the speakers was Orthodox Rabbi Dovid Feldman. He is associated with "Jews United Against Zionism," and is a member of "Neturei Karta International." For background, please see, http://www.nkusa.org/. In his remarks, Rabbi Feldman was sharply critical of the ideology of Zionism. He labeled it an "illegitimate political movement".

For Israel, every traveller is an ambassador

Israel has come under harsh criticism for waging a one-sided war against Hamas in Gaza, for possible involvement in assassinations and for belligerent comments by its foreign minister towards some of its neighbours – and the government has decided to fight back.

It is enlisting the help of citizen-diplomats to take the battle to foreign destinations. But instead of tackling its human-rights or international-relations image, the Israeli government wants the world to know Israelis don't ride camels or eat only kebabs, if a just-unveiled series of TV spots is an indicator.

La vérité sur le Mossad

- par Ian Black - 2010-02-24

Ground Zero workers win $657m settlement for health problems

Thousands of firefighters, police, contractors and others who worked at "Ground Zero" in the ruins of the World Trade Center sued the city and its contractors for claims of injuries associated with their rescue and clean-up work.

The settlement will be drawn from a federally financed insurance fund - the WTC Captive Insurance Company - created in 2004 with a $1 billion grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.


$650 Million Payout Proves Government Conspired To Lie About 9/11

Authorities hid truth surrounding September 11 in the immediate aftermath of the attack, telling dying heroes “the air is safe to breathe,” so how on earth can asking what else they lied about be hurtful to the very victims the government stabbed in the back?

The Road to Armageddon

The Road to Armageddon

Paul Craig Roberts
Prison Planet.com

Thursday, February 25, 2010

The Washington Times is a newspaper that looks with favor upon the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neocon wars of aggression in the Middle East and favors making terrorists pay for 9/11. Therefore, I was surprised to learn on February 24 that the most popular story on the paper’s website for the past three days was the “Inside the Beltway” report, “Explosive News,” about the 31 press conferences in cities in the US and abroad on February 19 held by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of professionals which now has 1,000 members.

I was even more surprised that the news report treated the press conference seriously.


Doubts cloud closing of anthrax case

"He was leaning over the table, and I was on the other side of the table," Byrne said. "And he leaned forward and was just really excited at how finely milled the powder was."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Doesn't sound like he had ever seen it before, does it?

I have no doubt about the case. I have no doubt at all this was a classic FBI cover-up and frame-up.

The FBI has attempted to blame three different men for the anthrax Attacks, Dr. Steven Hatfill, Dr. Ayaad Assaad, and finally Dr. Bruce Ivins.

In both the Hatfill and Assaaad cases, the FBI was eventually forced to concede the men were innocent (wrecking Hatfill's life in the process). When Bruce Ivins died and was no longer able to defend hinmself, the FBI said "That'stheguycaseclosedthankyouforcomingtothepressconference" and slammed the door.

But...

As hard as the FBI pushed to lay the blame for the Anthrax letters on Dr. Steven Hatfill, Dr. Ayaad Assaad, and Dr. Bruce Ivins, the FBI worked equally hard to ignore a real suspect, Dr. Philip Zack, the one man actually caught by the security systems entering the lab where the anthrax used in the letters was kept, without authorization and after losing his job over a racially-motivated attack on the above Dr. Assaad, who is Egyptian and hated by the Jewish Dr. Zack.

But the FBI avoided Dr. Zack entirely.

Why?

Because Zack is Jewish? It should be noted that Hatfill's chief accuser and author of his torment was Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, who actively kept the FBI's attention focused on Hatfill.

One thing is clear. The actual letters included with the anthrax were written to look like they were mailed by semi-literate fanatical Arab muslims. Now that we know that the anthrax itself came from a US Government lab, and that Drrs. Hatfill, Assaad, and Ivins are not semi-literate Arabs, it is obvious that the one thing the anthrax investigation does prove beyond a shadow of a doubt is that there was a conspiracy to frame Arabs for terror attacks inside the United States.

Entrevue de Paul Arcand avec Gilles Parent:

· 2010-03-22 - Gilles Parent, naturopathe, co auteur de La fluoration: autopsie d'une erreur scientifique Porte parole du Front commun pour une eau saine


http://www.985fm.ca/chmp/audio/audioplayer.php?url=http://mediacorus.corusquebec.com/webcorus/audio/content_Audio/286583.mp3

Or, il semblerait que la fluoration de l’eau serait une chose tout à fait illégale. Et il semblerait que le fluor n’ait pas les effets escomptés comme le disent les grandes promesses des vendeurs du temple.

Maintenant, pourquoi Santé Québec est derrière ça? Le plus troublant, c’est que lundi matin (22 mars), à l’émission de Paul Arcand, celui qui s’est attaqué à la fluoration de l’eau était interviewé. Il devait l’être avec un représentant de Santé Québec. Pourtant, Santé Québec a refusé d’aller débattre de la question au micro. Refusé de venir nous dire pourquoi ils font la promotion de la fluoration, pourquoi ils suggèrent fortement à toutes les villes du Québec d’aller d’avant avec la fluoration.

Le Mystère de la Santé n'est même pas capable d'envoyer quelqu'un pour expliquer leur point de vue! Ça me rappelle lorsque j'avais eu deux bons avocats sur l'émission pour débattre du système légal civil et encore une fois, le Mystère de la Justice n'avait pas cru bon envoyer un représentant.

Mais hey, c'est une démocratie représentative et il ne faudrait surtout pas oublier d'aller voter au quatre ans!

Quelle bullshit!

En tous cas, le message est clair pour la majorité du monde: le Mystère de la santé n'a pas l'air d'avoir le courage ni les arguments pour défendre leur position! Gros gros problème de crédibilité!


Health care dictatorship: A crime against America

This is the medical equivalent of a wartime draft that forces soldiers into battle against their will. Except this isn't a war against some foreign enemy -- it's a war being waged against your body by the pharmaceutical industry, the cancer industry, the surgery pushers and all the corporations that prey upon the public for their sick-care profits.


The Cost Of Defying Obamacare: $2,250 a Month And IRS Goons Pointing Guns At Your Family

The cost of defying Obamacare by withholding compliance on your income tax return will not be for the faint hearted – families will be forced to cough up $2,250 a month while being closely scrutinized by an army of new IRS agents with fresh “combat training,” armed to the teeth with 12 gauge pump action shotguns.

The penalties associated with defying mandatory health care are staggering. From 2014 onwards, for every month that individuals or businesses with over 50 employees fail to carry a minimum level of health insurance, they will be hit with fines of up to $750 a month for individuals and $750 per uncovered employee for businesses. For a family of four, this could amount to a whopping $27,000 a year ($2250 a month for each household).

“Because these new mandates and taxes are under the purview of the IRS, taxpayers and businesses could incur additional penalties normally reserved for normal income tax cheats, paying fees over and above those for not complying with Congress’ new mandates,” writes Cover.

The health care bill requires the IRS to monitor individuals and businesses via mandatory reporting on income tax returns. If you don’t pay up, the IRS will let loose one of their estimated 16,500 new agents, armed with shotguns and fresh “combat training,” to convince you otherwise.

The increasing transformation of tax collectors into heavily armed SWAT-like goons coincides with the passage of Obamacare, legislation which will rest entirely on its aggressive enforcement by thousands of new IRS agents sent out to harass individuals and small businesses.


Video: Obama breaks promise for 5-day public inspection; signs corporate “health” welfare bill

*hyperlinks and videos live at source*

Obama promised five days for public consideration, discussion, and informed opinions about bills reaching the President before he would sign them into law.

Obama promised the identities online of lobbyists and corporations that would benefit from tax increases, including how much these corporations would benefit.

The amount American taxpayers lose from the “health” insurance company welfare bill compared with universal health care that eliminates corporate middle-men is between $100 and $300 billion every year.


The House has passed an historic health care overhaul. Are you excited or angry?

Webmaster's Commentary:

Checking back in, it appears that post-passage support for the bill has waned even more.

Clearly we have taxation without representation as this bill does not represent the will of the people. It is (like the Carbon tax) a desperate grab for funds by a bankrupted and sinking government.


Kerry Exploits Obamacare Passage to Propose Carbon Tax

Following their successful effort to force totalitarian health control legislation down the throats of the American people, Obama’s allies are now pushing for climate change legislation.


After health, Obama allies zero in on climate

After a hard-fought victory on health care reform, President Barack Obama's allies in Congress are setting their sights on climate change -- but some on both sides are already crying foul.

Environmentalists hope Obama will seize on new political momentum to push forward climate legislation, though some observers question whether he would seek another divisive vote as November congressional elections approach.

Webmaster's Commentary:

More than a grab for more power, this is a grab for cash. The US Government is bankrupt and hopelessly in debt. Having given away our manufacturing our government, deprived of new money coming in, is feeding on the remaining money in the system, much as a body, deprived of food, starts feeding on itself, even though such will eventually lead to a most painful death.

The US Government has quit trying to loot the poor, finally realizing we have nothing left to tax, and so the focus shifts higher on the taxation "food chain", finding ways to add new taxes to upper middle and upper class Americans, feeding off of them until eventually they realize what we already know; this is about a broke government prolonging its own reign and willing to sacrifice the well-being of the general population to do so.


Obamacare To Be Enforced By Armed Thugs

f the health care bill was such a positive act of reform, as establishment Democrats and the corporate media are pitching it, then how come it needs to be enforced by means of coercion at the hands of thousands of armed IRS thugs?

That was the context of the discussion during Ron Paul’s appearance on Fox Business’ America’s Nightly Scoreboard last night, as the Congressman continued to speak out against the tyrannical nature of Obamacare.


Passage of Health Care = IRS + YOUR Medical Records!

One of the unconstitutional provisions of this proposed legislative abortion called health care reform is the mandate that all Americans must buy health insurance.

If someone doesn’t buy health insurance they WILL be subject to fines and/or penalties.

The way the government is going to collect these fines/penalties is by use of IRS enforcement – not exactly what the mission of this powerful Federal agency is.

The only way the IRS can establish whether or not you have the “big brother” mandated health insurance is to check your medical records!


IRS to Enforce Health Reform

(CNSNews.com) – The Internal Revenue Service will function as the government’s chief enforcer for health care reform, should President Obama sign the bill into law as expected, monitoring both businesses and individuals to certify whether they have the insurance coverage the government requires.

If either an individual or a business has failed to comply with this mandate for any month out of the year, they are required to pay a separate tax to the IRS. For individuals this is a maximum of $750 per person (up to $2,250 per household) and $750 per uncovered employee for businesses.

Because these penalties would each apply on a monthly basis, individuals and employers would have to pay 1/12th of the maximum penalties for each month they failed to comply with the mandates.

In order to carry out its new monitoring and enforcement duties, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that the IRS will need $10 billion in additional funds, funds which were not made available under the health reform bill.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Goodbye, small businesses in America!

You were the engine driving the growth of this country, but it is obvious that you will no longer be allowed to survive, under these regulations.


Closing Time: An Historic Confirmation of Corporate Power

http://uruknet.com/index.php?p=m64438&hd=&size=1&l=e

"The health insurance legislation is a major political symbol wrapped around a shredded substance. It does not provide coverage that is universal, comprehensive or affordable. It is a remnant even of its own initially compromised self — bereft of any public option, any safeguard for states desiring a single payer approach, any adequate antitrust protections, any shift of power toward consumers to defend themselves, any regulation of insurance prices, any authority for Uncle Sam to bargain with drug companies, and any reimportation of lower-priced drugs."

Obamacare for everyone but Obama

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/mar/23/obamacare-for-everyone-but-obama/

President Obama declared that the new health care law "is going to be affecting every American family." Except his own, of course.

The new health care law exempts the president from having to participate in it. Leadership and committee staffers in the House and Senate who wrote the bill are exempted as well. A weasel-worded definition of "staff" includes only the members' personal staff in the new system; the committee staff that drafted the legislation opted themselves out. Because they were more familiar with the contents of the law than anyone in the country, it says a lot that they carved out their own special loophole. Anyway, the law is intended to affect "ordinary Americans," according to Vice President Joe Biden

Mr. Obama frequently tossed around the talking point that the new law gave people the same type of coverage as Congress enjoyed.

The special exemptions slipped into the health care law are another example of how those statists who rule consider themselves a privileged class, imposing burdens on the country that they will not accept themselves. Candidates for office in 2010 should pledge to close these and other loopholes in the law that impose unequal burdens and create exclusive privileged classes in America. Meanwhile, we await Mr. Obama's explanation why if his "historic" health care law is so great for America, it's not good enough for him and his family.


Fourteen US states sue to block health reform

In a sign of political battles to come, 14 US states filed lawsuits Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of health care reform just moments after President Barack Obama signed it into law.


Rep. Giffords' Tucson office vandalized after health care vote

While the calls into the office in the past week were “more nasty and rude” and laced with profanity than the office had ever received before, Karamargin said, they did not reach the level of threat that prompted any police involvement. Throughout all of the protests over the past several weeks as the health care proposal entered its final push, the office was often full of people — many vehemently opposed to the health care proposal — but this incident was the first involving any vandalism.

Webmaster's Commentary:

It won't be the last.


Health Care Reform: We're Being Fooled Again

In return for these new federal rules, insurance companies are to have a guaranteed market through a mandate that will require every person to have insurance. So what looks like onerous new regulations on the insurance companies turns out to be a bargain they are happy to accept. Instead of having to innovatively and competitively attract young healthy people to buy their products, the companies will count on the government to compel them to do so. Playing the populist role, Obama & Co. bash the insurance companies, but in fact the "reform" compels everyone to do business with them.


How food and water are driving a 21st-century African land grab

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/mar/07/food-water-africa-land-grab

An Observer investigation reveals how rich countries faced by a global food shortage now farm an area double the size of the UK to guarantee supplies for their citizens

But Ethiopia is only one of 20 or more African countries where land is being bought or leased for intensive agriculture on an immense scale in what may be the greatest change of ownership since the colonial era.

An Observer investigation estimates that up to 50m hectares of land – an area more than double the size of the UK – has been acquired in the last few years or is in the process of being negotiated by governments and wealthy investors working with state subsidies. The data used was collected by Grain, the International Institute for Environment and Development, the International Land Coalition, ActionAid and other non-governmental groups.

The land rush, which is still accelerating, has been triggered by the worldwide food shortages which followed the sharp oil price rises in 2008, growing water shortages and the European Union's insistence that 10% of all transport fuel must come from plant-based biofuels by 2015.

In many areas the deals have led to evictions, civil unrest and complaints of "land grabbing".

Monsanto admits their technology doesn’t work!

For years Monsanto has been shouting that the main - read only - benefit of Bt cotton in India (the only genetically engineered crop planted here) was the reduction in pesticide use. Well, it seems they have just admitted this is not true. Pink bollworm, a serious pest for cotton farmers in India, is now resistant to the toxin in Bt cotton. Meaning that this bug is now sort of a super-pest that farmers will have to work harder and harder to avoid.

What is Monsanto's solution to this? Maybe you have guessed it: use Monsanto's next weapon – same technology - Bt cotton 2.0. With double the amount of toxins (and almost double the price of non-Bt seeds)


Pharma Backed Australian of the Year Psychiatrist Wants Millions in Government Funding for Brave New World of “Pre-Drugging” Kids

Who is Patrick McGorry and what does he promote? He’s a psychiatrist just named Australian of the Year for his work in “youth mental health reform.” What does that reform consist of? What he calls a “new form of climate change.” It sure is.

He not only promotes youths being put on antipsychotics and antidepressants, cited by international drug regulatory agencies as causing hallucinations, hostility, personality change, life-threatening diabetes, strokes, suicide and death, McGorry goes a giant step further—drug them before they’ve even developed a “psychiatric” disorder.

Russia criticizes U.S., NATO over Afghan drug trafficking fight

http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/afghanistan/2010-03-12-russia-us-nato_N.htm

Russia's envoy to NATO has sharply criticized the alliance's shift away from fighting drug trafficking in Afghanistan, saying the resulting surge in heroin smuggling is endangering Russia's national security.

In an interview late Thursday, Dmitry Rogozin also highlighted the lack of cohesion within NATO, saying Moscow is worried about declining public support in Europe for the war.

"(Russia) is losing 30,000 lives a year to the Afghan drug trade, and a million people are addicts," Rogozin said. "This is an undeclared war against our country."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Where there is control of the drug trade,there is also the control of where the drugs wind up.

That is one way to destabilize a country without firing a shot.

FLASHBACK - Ted K., the CIA & LSD

It turns out that Theodore Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, was a volunteer in mind-control experiments sponsored by the CIA at Harvard in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Michael Mello, author of the recently published book, "The United States of America vs. Theodore John Kaczynski," notes that at some point in his Harvard years--1958 to 1962--Kaczynski agreed to be the subject of "a psychological experiment." Mello identifies the chief researcher for these only as a lieutenant colonel in World War II, working for the CIA's predecessor organization, the Office of Strategic Services. In fact, the man experimenting on the young Kaczynski was Dr. Henry Murray, who died in 1988.

Report links vaccines to Gulf war syndrome

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2004/jan/12/health.military

A senior army doctor has provided the first official support for claims that the cocktail of vaccines given to soldiers before the 1991 war in Iraq probably caused illnesses that became known as Gulf war syndrome, it was reported today.

For 13 years, the MoD has denied that vaccines could be blamed for the illnesses. Independent research has also failed to find conclusive proof of a common link between the vaccines and a Gulf war-related syndrome.

However, Lieutenant Colonel Graham Howe, clinical director of psychiatry with the British forces health service in Germany, has made a link between the vaccines and illnesses associated with claims of Gulf war syndrome.


Dutch government wants to sell flu vaccines back

The Dutch government wants to sell 21 million unused H1N1 flu vaccine doses back to their manufacturers after they proved unnecessary and no other country wanted to buy them, the Health Ministry said on Saturday.


Government Swine Flu Ad Portrays Vaccine Skeptics As Raving Lunatics

A glib 33 second propaganda ad produced by the Kentucky Department for Public Health portrays skeptics of the swine flu vaccine as raving lunatics, despite the fact that the head of the Council of Europe’s investigation into the 2009 outbreak labeled it “one of the greatest medical scandals of the century.”

The commercial, which is entitled ‘H1N1 Vaccine Myths,’ features a group of office workers spewing ridiculous theories about the swine flu vaccine that have never been embraced by any vaccine skeptic, in an attempt to build a classic straw man and smear people who question the necessity for taking the shot as unstable lunatics.

The actors in the ad debate whether the H1N1 vaccine was “made from platypus milk,” or whether it “makes you susceptible to hypnotic suggestion.”

The clip ends by another actor in the ad stating, “It was made from secret alien technology found on the moon.”

“Some folks believe anything,” states an assertive female voice, “The swine flu vaccine is safe, effective, and you still need it, learn more at Kentucky’s flu website, that way you can separate the fact from the fiction.”

Unfortunately, Kentucky health authorities have completely failed to separate the fact from the fiction during the course of their 33 second ad, because they attribute outlandish theories about the vaccine to skeptics who have never even uttered such things.

While the advertisement frames suspicion about the vaccine in the context of tin-foil hat wearing madness, in reality the swine flu pandemic has been denounced as a gargantuan hoax not by demented paranoid psychotics, but by the head of the Council of Europe’s Sub-committee on Health, Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, who as the chief of a major investigation into the H1N1 outbreak, labeled the case a “fake pandemic” manufactured by pharmaceutical companies in league with the WHO to make vast profits while endangering public health.

In a separate interview, Wodarg labeled the pandemic, “One of the greatest medical scandals of the century.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

The commercial is not only silly and heavy handed but shows the government to be on the defensive.


Danish Scientist Absconds with $2 million More Info - Key character who "proved" vaccines don't cause autism.

A Danish scientist who was a key researcher in two studies that purport to show that mercury used in vaccines and the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine do not cause autism is believed to have used forged documents to steal $2 million from Aarhus University in Denmark according to reports in the Copenenhagen Post Online and a statement from Aarhus University.

Poul Thorsen, MD PhD, headed up a research unit at Aarhus University that was hired by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prepare a series of studies that would exonerate thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative and adjuvant used in vaccines, and the MMR vaccine from any role in causing autism. The veracity of the three studies he co-authored is now in doubt.

These studies formed the foundation for the conclusions of several Institute of Medicine reports that claimed that it was highly unlikely that thimerosal or MMR were implicated in autism.

In a statement Aarhus University officials said that believe Poulsen forged documents supposedly from the CDC to obtain the release of $2 million from the University. Poulsen resigned abruptly in March 2009 and left Denmark.


Fury as EU approves GM potato
March 4, 2010, The Independent (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/green-living/fury-as-eu...

The introduction of a genetically modified potato in Europe risks the development of human diseases that fail to respond to antibiotics, it [has been claimed]. German chemical giant BASF this week won approval from the European Commission for commercial growing of a starchy potato with a gene that could resist antibiotics – useful in the fight against illnesses such as tuberculosis. Farms in Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic may plant the potato for industrial use, with part of the tuber fed to cattle, according to BASF, which fought a 13-year battle to win approval for Amflora. But other EU member states, including Italy and Austria and anti-GM campaigners angrily attacked the move, claiming it could result in a health disaster. During the regulatory tussle over the potato, the EU's pharmaceutical regulator had expressed concern about its potential to interfere with the efficacy of antibiotics on infections that develop multiple resistance to other antibiotics, a growing problem in human and veterinary medicine. Drug resistance is part of the explanation for the resurgence of TB, which infects eight million people worldwide every year.

Indian law would make criticizing GM crops an imprisonable offense

BANGALORE: Criticising Genetically Modified (GM) products could land you in jail — if the draconian draft Biotechnology Regulatory Authority Bill (BRAB) of 2009, which will be tabled in the current session of the parliament by the UPA government, is passed.

In an unprecedented muzzle on the right to freedom of speech of the citizen, Chapter 13 section 63 of the draft bill says, “Whoever, without any evidence or scientific record misleads the public about the safety of the organisms and products…shall be punished with imprisonment for a term that shall not be less than six months but which may extend to one year and with fine which may extend to two lakh rupees or with both.” The BRAI Bill drafted by the department of bio-technology under the Ministry of Science and Technology comes on the heels of a moratorium on Bt Brinjal announced by the Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh.

There are also other provisions in this bill which are disconcerting.

Article 27 (1) of the bill seeks to keep the information related to the research, approval and science of the GM Products out of the purview of the Right to Information ( RTI) Act.

In other words, farmers, NGO’s and Environmental groups that have been on the forefront of the campaign against BT Brinjal and other genetically modified crops, can longer obtain information about it.


GM crops cause liver and kidney damage


(NaturalNews) A report published in the International Journal of Microbiology has verified once again that Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) crops are causing severe health problems. A legal challenge issued against Monsanto forced the multi-national agriculture giant to release raw data revealing that animals fed its patented GM corn suffered liver and kidney damage within just three months.

Dr. Gilles-Eric Seralini, a French researcher from the University of Caen, was tasked with examining the data and providing a review. While stopping short of declaring GM crops to be toxic, he did emphasize that chronic negative effects were apparent and that there were "statistically significant" indications of kidney and liver damage.

The specific effects observed in test rats included a buildup of hormones in the blood, indicating that their liver and kidneys were not functioning properly. One variety of the corn led to elevated blood sugar levels and increased triglyceride levels in female rats given it.

Dr. Seralini concluded that, because GM crops are foreign substances that have never been a part of a normal diet, there is no telling what the long-term effects of consumption will be on people. In animals, significant disruption of normal bodily function has been observed even in the short term.

House Panel Says Deaths of Armenians Were Genocide

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/05/world/europe/05armenia.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=a1

WASHINGTON — The House Foreign Affairs Committee voted narrowly on Thursday to condemn as genocide the mass killings of Armenians early in the last century, defying a last-minute plea from the Obama administration to forgo a vote that seemed sure to offend Turkey and jeopardize delicate efforts at Turkish-Armenian reconciliation.

The vote on the nonbinding resolution, a perennial point of friction addressing a dark, century-old chapter of Turkish history, was 23 to 22. A similar resolution passed by a slightly wider margin in 2007, but the Bush administration, fearful of losing Turkish cooperation over Iraq, lobbied forcefully to keep it from reaching the House floor. Whether this resolution will reach a floor vote remains unclear.

In Ankara, the capital, the office of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan immediately issued a sharp rebuke. “We condemn this bill that denounces the Turkish nation of a crime that it has not committed,” the statement said. Ambassador Namik Tan, who had only weeks ago taken up his post in Washington, has been recalled to Ankara for consultations, according to the statement.

Historians say that as many as 1.5 million Armenians died amid the chaos and unrest surrounding World War I and the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire. Turkey denies, however, that this was a planned genocide, and had mounted a vigorous lobbying campaign against the resolution.

A White House spokesman, Mike Hammer, said that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had told Representative Howard L. Berman of California, the committee chairman, late on Wednesday that a vote would be harmful, jeopardizing Turkish-Armenian reconciliation efforts that last year yielded two protocols aimed at a thawing of relations.

Putin, China's Xi vow 'strategic' support in first meeting

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, tipped to become China's president, hailed the strength of bilateral ties Tuesday as they looked to forge a counterbalance to the power of the US.

The meeting came as Moscow and Beijing seek to put behind them the rivalries of the Cold War, a period when the two Communist powers eyed each other with suspicion, and position themselves as counterweights to US global dominance.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This is a political and military partnership which seems to be evolving to the benefit of both countries.

While the US is nearly insolvent from spending itself into bankruptcy to fund these wars without end, Russia and China have been handling their energy needs with development deals, but not bullets, as has the US.
