Wikileaks:


Wikileaks, la fraude et pseudo-délateur


Je pense que beaucoup de gens manquent d'informations à propos de Julian Assange et de qui il est véritablement.

Parce qu’Assange semble à prime abord attaquer le pouvoir en place, dont particulièrement celui des États-Unis, il parait être un contre-pouvoir du côté de la population. Mais en regardant cela de plus près, bien que certaines informations rendues publiques font mal aux É-U et l’armée US, il fini par justifier la politique de ces derniers en donnant du crédit à l’Al Qaïda qui n’existe pas, justifiant ainsi la guerre contre le terrorisme et les occupations militaires du Moyen-Orient; il donne du poids à la version officielle du 9/11 en discréditant le mouvement pour la vérité, ce qui est une justification de plus pour la guerre contre le terrorisme et les mesures répressives et liberticides à la maison; et il associe faussement l’Iran à des actes répréhensibles, justifiant ainsi une attaque éventuelle contre ce pays.

Ces indices, et beaucoup d’autres, mènent à penser que Julian Assange est un « asset » de la CIA. En paraissant nuire au pouvoir des É-U, il peut plus facilement contribuer à renforcer l’agenda de l’élite.

Assange n’est pas un contre-pouvoir mais un nouvel outil du pouvoir.


Wiki-Leaks, c’est de l’intox comme disent les français. C’est l’art de mélanger du vrai avec du faux. Avec du vrai, on peut faire avaler des couleuvres à la population, et ça peut servir plusieurs objectifs. C’est pas innocent comme manoeuvre. Comment des USA si puissant disent craindre des révélations venant d’un site quand ils ne sont pas foutu de fermer de force ce site ? Ils ne faisaient qu’attendre ? C’est le point faible de l’histoire. C’est une histoire typique de False Flag. L’art de se faire des Jokers à la Ben Laden, made in CIA.

Beaucoup d’observateurs se posent la même question et particulièrement celle là : pourquoi ne révèle-t-il jamais rien sur le coup monté du 11/9 ? Est-ce parce qu’il a choisi d’en supprimer toute l’importance ?

Serait-il l’acteur d’une énorme manipulation de déstructuration contrôlée pour nous faire tourner la tête vers des faits moins graves ou plus banaux que ces attentats qui sont pourtant matière à donner prétextes à tous les malheurs du nouveau siècle ; que ces attentats qui sont la pierre de touche d’une énorme conspiration oligarchique, l’outil de la vérité qu’il ne faut laisser à aucun prix dans les mains du public ? Au milieu d’un lac de vérité, la lacune devient îlot de mensonge.

Toujours est-il que les faits qui sont exposés, soient-ils le produit d’une opération à dommages calculés –qu’on pourrait très bien imputer à un type du genre Zbigniew Brzezinski qui a très bien compris l’évolution de la conscience du public mondial, ne manqueront pas de nourrir ou de confirmer les argumentations de ceux qui se battent contre le nouvel ordre mondial, même s’ils servent aussi parfois la cause de cet ennemi.

Le nettoyage viendra par le haut, hélas, pour que le bas ne puisse pas récolter ni mettre à profit la trop belle évidence en menant ces suspects devant la justice.

La reprise en main de l’information qui a tout juste commencé –cf. sur Fox News, les propos d’un Glenn Beck se victimisant, les confessions de « Geraldo at Large » sur le 11/9 et les affirmations du lieutenant-colonel Anthony Shaffer et de l’ancien membre de la CIA Michael Scheuer– montre bien qu’une tentative de nettoyage contrôlée va se poursuivre afin de doubler le public dans sa prise de conscience et de tenter de le dévier à nouveau loin de la vérité au prochain virage.

Le choix de la grande presse de se faire l’écho des révélations de Wiklileaks va dans ce sens. Au peuple de rester éveillé et de ne plus se laisser conduire systématiquement par la manipulation de pensée des maîtres médiatiques.

· Plus au sujet du possible traitre Assange:

- Flashback: « Whistleblower? » Czar Julian Assange: 9/11 was NOT a Conspiracy says the Pin-Up of Web-Age « Investigative » Journalists

Assange: « I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud. »

Julian Assange’s comments regarding 9/11 stick out like a sore thumb given that this « whistleblowers’ whistleblower » is now feted with the title of « the most dangerous man alive ». The reality is that the CIA could nullify the threat posed by Assange and his operation any which way it wants. Assange dismissing 9/11 as a « false conspiracy » strongly suggests that that hasn’t happened yet because he is useful to the PTB in the form of controlled opposition.

Selon ses « révélations », Bin Laden serait encore vivant! Il est mort depuis de nombreuses années déjà!

- WIKILEAKS « LEAKED » DOCUMENTS TRIED TO CLAIM OSAMA BIN LADEN STILL ALIVE.

Voici d’autres pistes sur Assange, l’homme de Soros et de la CIA:

- WIKILEAKS – Julian Assange: 9/11 was not a conspiracy

« I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud. »

Webmaster’s Commentary:

More reasons to conclude that Wikileaks is a very clever propaganda operation. Well.. maybe not all that clever.

- Iran: US behind Wikileaks revelations

“It seems that these [revelations] are made upon the order of the US,” Secretary-General of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights Mohammad-Javad Larijani said on Monday at the summit for reviewing the human rights situation in the US.

“The message of Wikileaks documents is that the Iraqi people have been tortured by Iraq’s security forces, and the only wrongdoing of Americans is that they witnessed the incidents and remained silent,” IRNA quoted Larijani as saying.

“This is while the US had the main role in these incidents and is the defendant,” the Iranian diplomat added.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

I tend to think Iran is correct. Wikileaks is a very clever propaganda stunt. And the proof is rather simple. Nowhere in those supposed leaked documents is there any mention of Israelis taking part on the torture of captured prisoners, and yet we know that this did indeed happen.

The « leaked » documents also support the US agenda against Iran in numerous ways, from the claims that Iran is backing the Iraqi opposition (not that anyone would blame them if they were) to the already discredited claim that the three « hikers » were captured by Iranians on the Iraqi side of the border!

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange continues to attack the 9-11 truth movement, insisting that all suggestions that the official story is not accurate are « false » and « annoying. »

CIA, Mossad, allez savoir…

Comme par magie, les fuites appuient une démonisation de l’Iran et miraculeusement, Israël est complètement blanchie, le 9/11 totalement évité. Que des coïncidences, j’imagine. Israël a attaqué des navires d’aide humanitaire en pleines eaux internationales, mais AUCUNE MENTION de cela.

- More WikiLeaks propaganda; world leaders agree with Israel!

Had WikiLeaks didn’t exist, Israel would have had to invent it. The massive leak of US diplomatic documents produces a clear, unequivocal picture: The whole world, and not only Israel, is terrified by the Iranian nuclear threat.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

I think Israel did invent WikiLeaks. After all, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange insists there is no 9-11 conspiracy, and not a single criticism of Israel appears anywhere in this latest dump; an impossibility in the wake of the lethal Israeli attack on the aid flotilla last May!

WHAT WIKILEAKS DIDN’T LEAK

Israel agreed to ease its restrictions on goods and materials allowed into Gaza following its attack on a flotilla of aid boats in May, in which nine Turkish activists were killed. Since then the import of food and many other consumer items has resumed, although there is still a ban on exports and severe restrictions on construction materials. Israel argues that the latter could be used by militants for military purposes.

Tony Blair, the representative of the Middle East Quartet of the US, the UN, the EU and Russia, echoed the call for Israel to accelerate its easing of its blockade in an interview at the weekend. “There has been significant change in Gaza, but not nearly as much as we need,” he told the Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary:

It is important to note that WikiLeaks' dump of diplomatic cables contains nothing which is critical of Israel, yet clearly such diplomatic traffic had to be occurring in the months since Israel's attack on the aid flotilla. This glaring omission by itself proves WikiLeaks is an Israeli propaganda operation.

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Who is Really Leaking to Wikileaks?

Zbigniew Brzezinski doesn't think all the leaked information coming out of Wikileaks is a result of Army PFC Bradley Manning, as a matter of fact he suspects a foreign intelligence service may be providing the more embarrassing leaks.

Webmaster's Commentary:

WikiLeaks appears to be the "enforcement" mechanism by which Israel is blackmailing the US Government into sending your American children to kill Israel's enemies.

Along with the obvious pander to Israel's self-image and the pushing for war with Iran, the WikiLeaks dump did indeed contain some minor embarrassing revelations, and I think the message from Israel to the US Government is clear; "You think that was bad? Do as you are told, or we will use WikiLeaks to rip the lid off of 9-11 and put the entire blame on the US Government, and the public will believe us because the story will come from "independent" WikiLeaks, backed up by the US media Israel bribes with millions of dollars, and we in Israel will have deniability for the expose'!"

Dear Wikileaks: Leak the Bank Records NOW, Or Forever Hold Your Peace

Wikileaks head Julian Assange told Forbes that the next leak will be regarding a major American bank. He said that Wikileaks plans to release the documents early next year.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Well, this gives the banks enough time to meet Julian's price to NOT leak the really juicy stuff, doesn't it?

Seriously, I think Julian is desperate to distract from the growing awareness that WikiLeaks is an Israeli propaganda operation, and this "tease" of revelations yet to come is just a feint.

Last week, the Department of Homeland Security seized the domain names of roughly 70 websites for copyright infringement. There were no warrants, no court orders, and no court hearings before a judge. The DHS simply used their authority to grab websites on the basis they are perceived threats (apparently Osama Been Deadforawhile makes a good living with bootleg DVDs).

So, if WikiLeaks is really exposing dangerous classified diplomatic cables that are a threat to the United States, why didn't DHS seize the WikiLeaks domain? Assange was dropping hints of a major leak to come. If WikiLeaks was a real whistleblower, DHS could shut them down by grabbing their domain name just as easily as it shut down the copyright violators.

But they didn't.

The dog did not bark!

WikiLeaks is a fake whistleblower, an attempt to repackage old ABCNNBBCBS lies in a new form that the public will swallow.

There is no other possible explanation for DHS not to seize the domain as a real threat, especially since Assange was not shy about dropping hints as to what was to come!

WikiLeaks is a propaganda front.

John Young of Cryptome on Wikileaks Fraud/Psi Op

“The principal deficiency of Wikileaks is its lack of transparency about its operators and funds, characteristics of spies and secret societies up to no good and whose main purpose is to hide from public accountability and conceal corruption and criminality.

Such organizations always use a noble purpose and claim secrecy is needed to protect supporters. In practice the secrecy protects the principal beneficiaries, the operators and sources of funds, and supporters are sacrificed to protect the continuation of the enterprise.

- Iran dismisses Wikileaks release

Iran’s president has dismissed as propaganda the leaking of US cables detailing Arab calls for Washington to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the release by the Wikileaks website of thousands of extracts from US diplomatic messages was simply psychological warfare against Iran.

He said the release would not affect Iran’s relations with other countries.

VIDÉO:

- Wiki Leaks Founder « Exposed as a Fraud »

- CIA, Mossad and Soros Behind Wikileaks

WMR has learned from Asian intelligence sources that there is a strong belief in some Asian countries, particularly China and Thailand, that the website Wikileaks, which purports to publish classified and sensitive documents while guaranteeing anonymity to the providers, is linked to U.S. cyber-warfare and computer espionage operations, as well as to Mossad’s own cyber-warfare activities.

CIA, Mossad, allez savoir…

- Tick Off Israel and Wikileaks Will Call You a Terrorist

Turkey has been pissed off at Israel because the IDF illegally boarded some of their vessels in international waters that were attempting to bring humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza and they killed some 9 Turkish citizens in the process.

So of course, Wikileaks calls the Turks “terrorists”. This of course after Wikileaks released some “secrets” that claimed the US has only indirectly caused the deaths of a mere 15,000 Iraqi civilians over and above the “official” number and that Iran is also “supporting the terrorists” in Iraq.

- Israel satisfied as WikiLeaks shows ‘consistency’ on Iran

Israel expressed satisfaction on Monday after the mass release of US diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks, saying it proved Israel’s position on Iran was consistent — in public and in private.

- NY TIMES REFUSED TO PUBLISH CLIMATEGATE EMAILS AND SOFTWARE BECAUSE THEY WERE ILLEGALLY OBTAINED, YET DOES NOT HESITATE TO PROMOTE WIKILEAKS « LEAK! »

Surely readers will recall Times reporter Andrew Revkin’s inspiring statement of principle: « The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye, so they won’t be posted here. »

Interested readers may want to compare and contrast Revkin’s statement of principle with the editorial note posted by the Times on the WikiLeaks documents this afternoon. Today the Times cites the availability of the documents elsewhere and the pubic interest in their revelations as supporting their publication by the Times. Both factors applied in roughly equal measure to the Climategate emails.

Webmaster’s Commentary:

If one needs further proof that today’s WikiLeaks document dump is really a propaganda operation, one need only contrast how the media is treating these documents compared to other genuine leaks in the past.

The Climategate emails were a real leak, one which exposed the reality that the push for carbon taxes and a global environmental authority was built on a massive fraud, one that is rather obvious as we head into our second record setting winter in a row. But the New York Times refused to cover that story on the grounds that the source documents were illegally obtained. Even at the time this seemed a strange editorial position to take, since the New York Times had not hesitated to report on the Pentagon Papers, even though they too were leaked.

And here we are today with the New York Times excerpting and interpreting sections of this WikiLeaks document dump, even though the government maintains that these are illegally obtained, provided by an organization which maintains there was no 9-11 conspiracy, that Osama bin Laden is still alive and running Al Qaeda, and that WMDs were actually found in Iraq!

This isn’t news; it is a sales job. The New York Times is trying to sell you a load of propaganda disguised as a leak in the hopes that claims you would discard as obvious lies in the corporate media might be more successful if presented as coming from an organization hostile to the US Government. But again, with WikiLeaks supporting the official stories of 9-11, Osama, and WMDs, it is clear that the hostility between WikiLeaks and Government is about as genuine as that seen on pro wrestling!

And I note that despite the diplomatic crisis triggered by Israel’s attack on the aid flotilla last May, not one document critical of Israel appears anywhere in the millions of cables WikiLeaks is feeding you all.


- WEBSTER TARPLEY SAYS THAT JULIAN ASSANGE IS A MEGA-PATSY AND COVERT AGENT WORKING FOR CIA AND GEORGE SOROS

· VIDÉO

Et si l’opération servirait à déclarer l’Internet comme étant une menace à la sécurité nationale des États-Unis pour justifier la mise à mort de la liberté d’expression et l’échange d’information sur le l’Internet et donc imposer un contrôle de celui-ci ou même sa fermeture?

- Wikileaks and the Setup to End Free Speech: The US Embassy Cable « Leaks »

Wikileaks, me thinks, is the Hegelian Dialectic, the Problem/Reaction/Solution for the coming shutdown of the internet, and dictatorial assault on free speech and targeting all of us, the new media, as enemies of the state. This is what the Rockefellers and Sen. Joe Lieberman want, being big fans of the Chinese model of a kill switch. If you believe the media darling and « whistleblower » Czar Assange is genuine, I have some property and a business offer to sell this corporation to you, Brewster Jennings and Associates. Valerie Plame would be your contact for more info.

Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer/Able Danger said tonight, « Let me state again – and be clear here – I do not believe WiliLeaks is a legitimate whistle-blowing organization – they seems more focused on being disruptive, than working to enhance oversight of/or resolution of key military and diplomatic issues, as an objective. » He’s in good company agreeing with me. ; )

· Cela semble l’explication la plus plausible expliquant la notoriété d’Assange, soit de fournir un prétexte pour réglementer l’Internet, limiter la liberté d’expression des utilisateurs, et donner aux autorités des pouvoirs accrus en la matière.

Les médias jouent leur rôle en essayant de nous convaincre que les révélations d’Assange compromettent la sécurité nationale de divers pays.

·

Un truc qui résume bien la situation. Désolé pour ceux qui ne lisent pas l’anglais…

· Rappelez-vous que dans une autre tentative de propagande honteuse, Wikileaks a essayé de nous faire croire que des armes de destruction massive avaient été trouvées en Irak, JUSTIFIANT L’INVASION EN 2003.

AUCUNE ARME DE LA SORTE N’ONT ÉTÉ TROUVÉES.


· THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO WIKILEAKS LATEST DOCUMENT DUMP

Michael Rivero


Wikileaks, following much media fanfare (reason for suspicion right there) has just released a huge number of documents supposedly leaked to WikiLeaks and no other websites’. The media is denouncing this as a threat to the United States while US politicians wring their hands and wonder when they will be free of the curse of the First Amendment and all that troublesome nonsense about Freedom of Speech. Many observers think this is a propaganda set up and that neither Julian Assange or WikiLaeks should be taken at face value. After all, Julian Assange keeps insisting there was no 9-11 conspiracy and the 9-11 truth movement a « distraction. » Apparently Julian Assange has patented conspiracy and nobody else may expose one except himself!

Of course, there is really not that much that is new in this latest dump. Like prior WikiLeaks dumps, most of it is old news mixed with some rather dubious claims. In his last such dump, Julian Assange included a claim that Osama bin Laden is still alive and controlling Al Qaeda. Osama bin Laden has been dead for many years and that Al Qaeda itself is a fake front group created to hoax Americans into endless wars of conquest, much as the fictional Emmanuel Goldstein was used in George Orwell’s « 1984. » Of course, it is well documented outside the United States that

In yet another infamous propaganda attempt, WikiLeaks tried to claim that weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq, justifying the invasion. No such weapons were ever found.

As for the present batch of documents, again it is a rehash of stories already known to the blog-o-sphere. Even those people who did not know US diplomats spy on their United Nations counterparts did not find it surprising or in any way a new idea.

So what is the real purpose of Assange’s little charade? Propaganda.

Propaganda is like rat poison. 95% of it is tasty, healthy food. But the purpose is to get you to swallow the poison. The same is true of the WikiLeaks document dump. The bait are all these old stories which we already knew about, used to convince us that the entire pile is « tasty, healthy food, » except that it isn’t. Buried in the pile of delicious, albeit past the expiration date morsels are the bits of poison which the US Government knows you will no longer accept at face value from the controlled media, but hope you will eat if handed to you by a con artist posing as hostile to the government.

So, given that 95% of the current WikiLeaks is really old news, as a public service I will point out the bits of poison that Julian hopes you will eat.

1. Iran is bad so you should all want to kill them.

2. Saudi Arabia is bad because they are funding Al Qaeda so you should all want to kill them.

3. North Korea is bad because they gave really long range missiles to Iran for Iran to put their nuclear warheads in, so you should all want to kill them.

4. China is messing with your computers, so you should all want to kill them.

That about sums it up. Oh yes, there is nothing negative about Israel in all these diplomatic messages, an impossibility given the lethal Israeli attack on the Aid Flotilla last May. That suggests who Assange really works for.

Funny thing about rat poison. After a while the rats learn to eat the food and leave the poison behind.

Ireland bailout protest draws 100,000 to Dublin streets

100,000 Irish Protest IMF, Austerity Plan & Bank Bailouts

Over 100,000 Courageous Irish braved the cold weather to protest the Austerity Plans being supported by Irish Government and initiated by MASSIVE Banker Bailouts proposed by the European Union and provided by the IMF.

Irish Pension Reserve Funds To Be Spent On Banks

Up to 15 billion Euros from the Irish National Pensions Reserve Fund to be used to bail out banks!

UP to €15 billion from the National Pensions Reserve Fund, set aside when the Celtic Tiger was still roaring, is likely to be used to recapitalise three of the country’s banks.

Amid speculation last night that the rate of interest to be charged on the EU/IMF bailout could be as much as 6.7%, Fine Gael’s finance spokesman Michael Noonan said that kind of rate was "far too high" and unaffordable on any reasonable projection of growth.

The Department of Finance said the interest rate had still not been finalised, but given that much of the loan would be repayable over nine years the rate could be higher than the 5.2% charged to Greece but would not be as high as the 6.7% being quoted by some brokers.


France has Now Grabbed Their People's Pension Funds to Give to Banks and Their Debt - Joining Hungary and Ireland

Seems all over the world countries are grabbing their People's Pension and Retirement accounts, they pass the laws very fast and spring the surprise on their people. France has just joined the fray of taking their people's retirement accounts to give to the banks and buy the countries bonds. They have taken 36 Billion of people's Pension and retirement accounts.

Asset managers will have the chance to get billions of euros in mandates in the next few months for the €36bn Fonds de Réserve pour les Retraites (FRR), the French reserve pension fund, after the French parliament last week passed a law to use its assets to pay off the debts of France’s welfare system.

Peter Schiff vs. Gata: $56,000 Dollar Gold?


Crisis of Fiat Currencies: US Dollar Surpluses Converted into Gold

China, Russia, Iran are Dumping the Dollar

Something is going on that your government does not want you to know about. Very few journalists have written about it and little or nothing has appeared in the mainstream media. The story could be one of major stories of our time.


Western powers have tried to destroy gold as a backing for currencies for many years. Presently the major media won’t touch the story and that is understandable.


Something we have been writing about for years is the Shanghai Cooperation Organization known as SCO. Few have been listening and few have been interested in what their mission is and what they have been up to.


Some of the members are large oil producers and some, like China, are large oil users. Some have very large US dollar surpluses. As well, some are large commodity and gold and silver buyers. In fact, members are in a great part responsible for driving these prices higher. It is debatable, but we believe there is a conscious effort to accumulate gold and silver, dump dollars and to back their currencies with gold.

China and Russia are both large gold producers and for a number of years have been buying up domestic gold and silver production, so that it never reaches the market and does not affect prices. If anything the absence of sales tends to push the markets higher. As a matter of fact Russia and India are visible buyers. Even Iran with its oil surplus recently announced that they had purchased 340 tons of gold. Their recent gold purchases are very significant as affiliate members, which have access to the present and ultimate direction of the group. You might say buying gold has been a protective effort to shield members and close observers from the problems generated by dollar policies. They are accumulating gold, as many have been worldwide, for the past ten years, but particularly over the past few years.

What we see is a natural path by nations to extricate themselves from the control of Wall Street and the City of London, which have dominated the world for so long. All these facts considered we believe gold will find its way substantially higher with the participation of these nations, a factor the West never figured on.

At the root of all this is that the Fed is supposed to be saving the US economic and financial structure. They are not doing that, they are saving the banking system and Wall Street instead and these are the miscreants that caused the problem in the first place. The result of this policy of zero interest rates and easy money is that few are saving.


Silver Prices Surging on Near-Record Demand

Webmaster's Commentary:

Looks like the plan to crash JP Morgan Chase is going viral!


BREAKING: The Comex May Have A Problem...

the open gold o/i as of this morning is 59,412 contracts. This translates into 5.9 million ounces. The Comex gold inventory shows only 2.6 million ounces of gold registered and approved for delivery. There is a total of 11.4mm ounces.

In silver, there are 17,208 open contracts. This translates into 86 million ounces. The Comex reports 48.5 million ounces available and approved for delivery, 107.2 million total ounces.

What does this mean, in the context of the cartel being unable to force liquidate a majority of the open gold/silver positions? Everyone reading this can use their imagination and I'm not willing to predict how this will unfold, but right now the Comex has a problem.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Looks like the "buy silver" campaign worked. COMEX is stuck unable to fullfill the open silver contracts.


Comex Default for Gold and Silver Finally at Hand for December? Looks Like It May Finally Be the Month!

If you are in the least bit interested in metals - gold and silver than Harvey Organ's Blog is a must read! Every day he will put out the numbers of the Comex and today he gave the best news I have read yet about metals!

He says a Comex Default looks to be at hand!! The amount of orders standing for delivery for the month of December is much more than the Comex has officially listed on hand!

Also, remember the shorts on metals, especially J.P. Morgan has on silver is Huge! They have to cover their shorts for those who are standing for delivery! How will they do this? Considering the millions of ounces standing for delivery in December? Bet they will be calling those longs and offering a huge percentage over the long value order in cash, instead of physical.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Except that the cash is pouring out of Bernanke's printing presses and cannot hold its value at all. Plus, COMEX will cover the losses by asking for a bailout, which means sticking YOU with the losses from their fraudulent over-selling of gold and silver contracts.

Assuming they are not all tungsten, I expect the US Government to use gold bars from Fort Knox to cover those COMEX longs not willing to accept cash for the metals they thought they were buying, but there is probably not enough silver metal available to cover the silver shorts.

Even if COMEX persuades the holders of those metals contracts to accept a huge cash payout (on the taxpayers back) to get them off the hook, international trust in the US financial markets will take a major hit when this all comes down!


China, Russia quit dollar

St. Petersburg, Russia - China and Russia have decided to renounce the US dollar and resort to using their own currencies for bilateral trade, Premier Wen Jiabao and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin announced late on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

One has to wonder if it was only coincidence, that on the day China and Russia make this announcement, South Korea decides to provoke the Chinese-client state, North Korea, with military exercises, exercises in which "US advisors" participated?!?


U.S. sends carrier to Yellow Sea for exercises near Korea

Chinese Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu told state-run media in July that "if the United States truly wants to take into account the overall interests of the Sino-U.S. relationship, then it must on no account send its USS Washington to the Yellow Sea." He called the area "sensitive."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Between the US debt owed to China, China's refusal to make their own people suffer to fix the US Government's self-imposed economic melt-down, and yesterday's announcement that Russia and China are dropping the dollar for bilateral trade, the US government has a strong motive to start a war with China and try to make it look like either China or China's client state North Korea's fault, in order to justify erasing those debts with bombs and the blood of young Americans. Just as the firing of shells into North Korea's waters was a provocation, the deployment of the USS George Washington into the Yellow Sea is a provocation. And I note that Popular Mechanics December magazine features a cover story about the Chinese "threat" to US aircraft carriers!


U.S. Calls on China to Use Influence to Restrain North Korea

Webmaster's Commentary:

This sounds a lot like the US asking HAMAS to stop the Palestinians from shooting back when Israel attacks them. Because South Korea provoked this exchange of gunfire by shooting into North Korean waters in what is a clear provocation.

Obama's agenda here is twofold. First, by shifting the focus from North Korea to China, he draws attention away from that provocation. Second, it is clear that between the G20, in which China refused to alter their currency when "ordered" to do so, and the dropping of the dollar in trade with Russia, that the war focus has shifted from Iran to China, with war with China being the convenenint excuse to erase the debts owed to China, and of course, that is easily worth the few million dead Americans such a war will cost, right President Pansy?

Burning with anger: London streets in flames again as 25,000 go on rampage in new student fees riot

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1332484/TUITION-FEES-PROTEST-P...

Superb photos of the protests.

Police officers were seriously injured today as angry demonstrators protesting against the hike in tuition fees again brought chaos to the streets.

Around 10,000 students and protesters flooded London for a new demonstration just a fortnight after anarchists unleashed mayhem at the Tory Party headquarters. More than 25,000 students in total are believed to have taken part in protests across the country today.

Scotland Yard, determined not to be caught on the hop a second time, ensured hundreds of officers were on duty and quickly reinforced numbers as flashpoints developed.


Strike against austerity cuts brings Portugal to a halt

Many of Portugal's public services have ground to a halt as workers strike in a bid to weaken the government's resolve to make deep budget cuts.

Rail services, urban transport, flights, rubbish collection, healthcare and banking were all disrupted by the first general strike in decades.

More than 8 million drop out of credit card use

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) - More than 8 million consumers stopped using credit cards over the past year. The decline stems from a combination of consumer choices and bank actions.

An analysis by credit reporting agency TransUnion found that use of general purpose credit cards bearing MasterCard or Visa logos, or issued by Discover or American Express, fell more than 11 percent in the third quarter, compared with the July to September period last year.


About 62 million people now have an active card, compared with 70 million a year ago.

The Chicago company found that consumers in the subprime category, or those with low credit ratings, were believed to be without cards mostly because they were shut down by banks after payments fell behind or balances were written off.

"One can quite reasonably infer that's not voluntary," said Ezra Becker, vice president of research and consulting in TransUnion's financial services business unit. Banks have written off record amounts of credit card balances in recent years.

But a significant portion of the decrease in card usage reflects decisions by cardholders to stop using credit, Becker said. "They're simply either not purchasing as much or paying down balances."

United Nations Bans Journalist from Climate Conference

The UN has refused access to the Cancun Climate Change Conference to Phelim McAleer, who is well known for asking scientists and politicians difficult questions about Global Warming orthodoxy.

McAleer was notified of the UN's refusal to accredit him just days before the international conference opening today.

McAleer produced and directed Not Evil Just Wrong, a documentary on Global Warming.

His reports from Copenhagen Climate Change Conference went viral on youtube, so much for that this time around.


COP-16 Climate Change Panelists Told to Avoid Media; NYT Chides IPCC for Bunker Mentality, Bad PR

Imagine that you have been selected and agreed to participate with other noted scientists in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to assess climate science and policy options related to global climate change, with a major event set for late November 2010 in Cancun where the world would be watching.

Now, you are four months away from COP 16, to be held from Nov. 29 to Dec. 10 in Cancun and you receive a letter from the IPCC advising you to keep your distance from the media. The directions: refer questions to group leaders or the Secretariat. Do you feel stupid – your expertise, education and credentials not valued? Is IPCC afraid of new issues surfacing? What are they hiding?


Cancun climate change summit: scientists call for rationing in developed world

Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions.

Louise Gray -- The Telegraph

In a series of papers published by the Royal Society, physicists and chemists from some of world’s most respected scientific institutions, including Oxford University and the Met Office, agreed that current plans to tackle global warming are not enough . . .

Pendant ce temps-là, ces morons se paient des hôtels luxueux pour débattre de la question, du champagne et du caviar. Tout ce qu’il y a de plus logique. La famine pour nous et la vie de pachat pour eux!


Climate Alarmists Push Forced Relocation At Cancun Summit

Not content with merely pushing world war-style rationing and the complete de-industrialization of the planet, global warming alarmists meeting in Cancun Mexico this week will propose the forced relocation of entire populations in the name of offsetting man made climate change.

The shocking proposal appears on page 6 of the executive summary of the Special Climate Change Program.

As a means of mitigating climate change, encouraging sustainability and reducing CO2 emissions, the document calls for, “the implementation of relocation programs for human settlements and infrastructure in high risk areas.”

Ten Inches of Snow Forecast For Britain As Arctic Weekend Arrives

BRRRR!!!


MINUS 17C! Britain shivers as record low temperatures grip the country (and even a Arctic buzzard visits)

Britain shivered in record low temperatures overnight as the big freeze maintained its grip on the country, forecasters said today.

The mercury at Llysdinam near Llandrindod Wells plunged to minus 17.3C - the principality's lowest ever temperature for November and the UK's chilliest for the month since 1985.


Mayhem Monday: Commuter chaos as temperatures are expected to hit -20C after coldest November for 25 years

Forecasters warned that the mercury will plunge even lower - to minus 20C - as the severe weather continues until next week, with snow due to hit London and the Home Counties tonight.


Big freeze will go on 'for weeks'

The predication came as more severe weather warnings were issued and parts of Scotland and North East England were hit by up to 16 ins of snow.


UK Met Office tries to save itself as harsh winter hits, says global warming is "slowing."

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1333225/Global-warming-slowing-say-scientists.html

The rate at which global temperatures are rising has slowed in the past decade, scientists said today.

In a report published today, the Met Office said the slow in the rate of warming was down to a combination of natural variation in the weather and pollution.

Scientists say one of the major factors is the rise in heavy industry and pollutant 'aerosols', particularly in Asia.

An upsurge in industrial emissions such as sulphur which are being pumped into the atmosphere reflects sunlight and could lead to a cooling effect.


The Norwegian Meteorological Institute says that it is even going to get colder


Sweden braces for record freeze


Stockholm is forecast to experience its coldest seasonal temperatures for over 100 years this week as winter weather takes hold of the country, according to the Swedish Meteorological Institute (SMHI).


So IPCC, where is that global warming your data models promised us?
Could really use it now.

The big freeze begins with most widespread November snowfall in 17 years... and there's more to come

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1332822/Big-freeze-begins-widespread-November-snowfall-17-year.html

Britain awoke to the most widespread November snowfall seen for 17 years this morning.

Parts of Scotland, the north of England and areas down the east coast were worst hit, with up to four inches of snow falling.

Major roads ground to a halt as motorists struggled with the icy conditions. By 9am the AA had received 3,000 calls from stranded drivers.

Forecasters say today's snow is the tip of the iceberg and have warned that a 10-day freeze is on the way.


Arctic winds could mean another snowy winter (Sweden)

Sweden could be facing a repeat of last winter's deep freeze, with lots of snow covering the ground for months.

"It looks exactly like last winter now" says weather forecaster Per Kållberg to the Sydsvenskan newspaper. Kållberg works at the Swedish meteorological office, SMHI.

The reason, say scientists, is that cold air is still being brought in from the arctic by the so-called North Atlantic Oscillation. This weather phenomenon is in a 'negative' phase, just like it has been since December 2009.

Before that Sweden had 40 years of relatively mild winter, due to the oscillation being in a 'positive' phase.

Per Kållberg at SMHI says that this phenomenon has been known about for a long time, but scientists have no reason why it exists.


Troubling Global Volcanic Activity on the Rise

Here’s why volcano watchers around the world are on high alert.

This past week, in Indonesia, after a tsunami killed several hundred people, Mount Merapi rumbled to life forcing thousands to flee back to evacuation centers as 38 lava avalanches occurred with pyroclastic flows down the south and west slopes running outward for seven kilometers. They incinerate everything in their path.

In August, a volcano on Sumatra erupted for the first time in 400 years.

There is a “Ring of Fire” that stretches approximately 25,000 miles in a horseshoe from eastern Asia to the western shores of North and South America. It has 452 volcanoes of which 75% are the world’s most active or dormant.

On August 25, Italy’s Etna volcano and Columbia’s Galeros volcano both erupted.


Der Spiegel: Geologists Warning Of “Mega-Eruption”

Investigations of the volcano have revealed that an unprecedented Magma reservoir lurks underneath it, says Birger Lühr, a volcano researcher at the GFZ in Potsdam, Germany.

A rough estimate indicates that there is three times more magma than what was ejected by the Indonesian volcano Tambora in 1815 – the biggest eruption in the last 10,000 years, which led to a cooling of the climate globally.


Global emissions of carbon dioxide drop 1.3%, say international scientists

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/nov/21/carbon-emissions-fall-report

Global emissions of carbon dioxide dropped by 1.3% in 2009 compared with the previous year, largely due to the effects of the economic crisis and an overall fall in GDP, according to an international team of scientists.

The drop is smaller than the 2.8% fall predicted by many experts for 2009, however, because the reductions in carbon emissions per unit of GDP - a measure of efficiency called the carbon intensity - was smaller than expected in many emerging economies.

The results are part of the annual carbon budget update by the Global Carbon Project (GCP), an international group of climate scientists and analysts that collates emissions data to help policymakers. The project totalled the carbon emissions due to use of fossil fuels in power stations, cement manufacture and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

Head of UN climate body admits surprise at fury over blunder in report

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/nov/19/un-climate-rajendra-pachauri-regret

One year on, Rajendra Pachauri speaks of regret at false assertion that Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035

The head of the UN climate science body has admitted he was taken entirely by surprise by the ferocious public reaction to a blunder in its report on Himalayan glaciers. But he insisted the controversy had not set back efforts to secure action on climate change.

The mistake, a false assertion that the Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035, exacted severe damage to the reputation of the IPCC and its head, Rajendra Pachauri. It also provided further fuel to the controversy over the emails stolen from East Anglia's climate research unit and released online a year ago today.

"I mean we have been bullshitting the people, first about an ice age, then about global warming, to get taxes and obedience and they never made a fuss before!!! I just don't get it!!!"


Tired of Repetitive Arguing About Climate Change, Scientist Makes a Bot to Argue For Him

Had Popular Science actually read the automated posts of AI_AGW you would know that the bot does not actually present any science but merely repeats that the scientists implicated in the Climategate emails and computer codes scandal are innocent of any wrongdoing.

If the individual was tired of constantly having their spin rebuffed, the civil thing to do is retire from the debate. But to create a bot that just wastes the opposition's time is neither civil, nor scientific, and is in fact the mark of a propagandist pushing an agenda at all costs.


The Harry_Read_Me File


Love the ironic title. Got this from reader, Glenn. I’m out of my depth trying to read the code–and apparently so were several folks at CRU. If what he, and the techies at the links, say is true, it’s no wonder they had to spin this for 10 years–it’s all absolute bullshit.

Here’s Glenn’s take with links:

The hacked e-mails were damning, but the problems they had handling their own data at CRU are a dagger to the heart of the global warming “theory.” There is a large file of comments by a programmer at CRU called HARRY_READ_ME documenting that their data processing and modeling functions were completely out of control.

They fudged so much that NOTHING that came out of CRU can have ANY believability. If the word can be gotten out on this and understood it is the end of the global warming myth. This much bigger than the e-mails. For techie takes on this see:

http://www.tickerforum.org/cgi-ticker/akcs-www?post=118625&page=13

http://www.neuralnetwriter.cylo42.com/node/2421

To base a re-making of the global economy (i.e. cap-and-trade)on disastrously and hopelessly messed up data like this would be insanity.

Send it far and wide.

Steve has it up on his mirror site–see blogroll–with the first link. Bwuhahahaha.

Though some of you already have it, Glenn has another techie comment link. Have fun.

R.I.P.: Al Gore’s (and Obama's) Chicago Climate Exchange Has Died

Global warming-inspired cap and trade has been one of the most stridently debated public policy controversies of the past 15 years. But it is dying a quiet death. In a little reported move, the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) announced on Oct. 21 that it will be ending carbon trading – the only purpose for which it was founded – this year.


Gore Pocketed ~$18 Million from Now-Defunct Chicago Climate Exchange

Although the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) collapsed and shut down this week, Al Gore's Generation Investment Management LLP pocketed approximately $17.8 million on it's 2.98% share of the exchange when it was sold to the publicly traded Intercontinental Exchange a mere 6 months ago. According to news reports, the brainchild of the exchange, academic Richard Sandor, founded the exchange with a foundation gift of $1.1 million, and pocketed $98.5 million for his 16.5% share of the CCX. This would place the value of Gore's firm's stake at almost $18 million.


Inside the Climate Fraud

More and more details are emerging on the greatest fraud in the history of science, the manufacturing of pseudo-scientific theories and data intended to panic the world into carbon control, empowering the leviathan of government to regulate all human activity. Doug Ross presents 12 photos taken and annotated by David Evans of official temperature monitoring stations obviously sited in order to show higher temperatures than in surrounding areas, near air conditioner exhausts, on concrete or asphalt surfaces that absorb and radiate heat, and near car or airplane exhaust flows.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Temperature monitor next to incinerator

We have previously documented that temperature sensors used to generate the data that supports the claim of human caused global warming have been placed in the outflow of building air conditioners and in one notable instance right next to a trash incinerator. Clearly given that these are all sources of heat, the readings from these temperature sensors cannot be used to assume that we are measuring the temperature of anything other than air-conditioning outflow and the incineration of trash.


Obama to bypass Congress with carbon taxes?

In his nationally televised press conference, President Obama indicated that carbon taxes may be imposed on U.S. citizens through a move designed to bypass Congress altogether, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.

Knowing that the chances of getting cap-and-trade legislation through a Republican-controlled House and a Senate with a larger, more conservative Republican minority will be almost impossible, Obama suggested a backdoor route through the Environmental Protection Agency may be a way to accomplish the goal without requiring new legislation.


Boffins: Arctic cooled to pre-industrial levels from 1950-1990

New research by German and Russian scientists indicates that summer temperatures in the Arctic actually fell for much of the later 20th century, plunging to the levels seen at the beginning of the industrial revolution.

The new results are said by their authors to indicate that solar activity exerted a powerful influence over Arctic climate until the 1990s, an assertion which will cause some irritation among academics who contend that atmospheric carbon is the main factor in climate change.


First big freeze is on the way: Polar winds are blowing south with heavy SNOW forecast by Friday

Netweather, which correctly predicted last winter's big freeze, as well as the mixed summer, is forecasting a cold December and a white Christmas.

Last winter was the coldest for more than 30 years. Temperaturesin December, January and February struggled to stay above zero, with the UK average 1.5C (35F), making it the deepest freeze since 1978-79.


Global Tropical Cyclone activity is at 33-year lows

Indeed, Matt Drudge mixes up the overall global inactivity with the North Atlantic basin alone. Regardless, the story is now the same for 4-years in a row: North Atlantic hurricane forecasts hopelessly overblown against a backdrop of plummeting global tropical cyclone activity overall.

Webmaster's Commentary:

A mainstay of the global warming cult is that human caused global warming would lead to more severe hurricanes and other destructive storms. The actual trend has been fewer and fewer storms. The dire warnings of what would happen if we did not do as the climate cult told us to do have not materialized.

US and S.Korea plan naval show of force off tense peninsula
2010-11-27 12:24
"SEOUL, Saturday 27 November 2010 (AFP) -- US and South Korean naval forces plan to stage four days of war games from Sunday off the tense Korean peninsula, days after the North launched a deadly artillery strike against the South."
"Yonhap news agency quoted an unnamed South Korean military source as saying: "The intensity of the exercise will be greater than had been planned. Participating forces will carry out firing and bombing drills."
Pyongyang claims it acted in retaliation Tuesday to a South Korean firing drill in what it regards as its own waters and has warned that the new war games mean the peninsula "is inching closer to the brink of war"."

 
New Korean war could involve Canada: documents
 

OTTAWA - If war breaks out on the Korean peninsula, Canada could become embroiled due to a half-century-old United Nations military alliance, federal documents reveal.

Canada's military obligations in the volatile region are outlined in a briefing note prepared for Defence Minister Peter MacKay shortly after North Korea detonated a nuclear device last year.

The note by the Defence Department's policy branch, which was obtained by The Canadian Press, says the UN alliance could be used to generate an international fighting force if war erupts.

CHINA TELLS AMERICA: Turn Around The USS George Washington

China's Foreign Ministry said in an online posting that naval exercises risks starting a war: "We oppose any military act by any party conducted in China's exclusive economic zone without approval."

Webmaster's Commentary:

I think that it is obvious that the United States has decided that the best way to get out of the debts owed to China is to murder the people the money is owed to! Of course, American self-image requires some kind of hoax to make it look like China is to blame for the US attack.

Expats recalled as North Korea prepares for war

A mass exodus of North Korean workers from the Far East of Russia is under way, according to reports coming out of the region. As the two Koreas edged towards the brink of war this week, it appears that the workers in Russia have been called back to aid potential military operations.

Webmaster's Commentary:

North Korean leadership may be many things, but they are not foolish.

They understand, with absolute clarity, that the US is getting ready to launch a war against both North Korea and China, using the US's client state, South Korea, to begin the provocations, as it did last week.

The reasons?!?

1. At the last G20, China refused to revalue their currency on America's demands that they do so.

2. It is impossible for the US to pay back the trillions of dollars it has borrowed from China to finance its immoral and illegal wars around the world.

3. China and Russia have just dumped the dollar as a medium of exchange in business transactions.


Russian, Chinese Foreign Ministers Urge End to Korean Peninsula Escalation

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Chinese counterpart, Yang Jiechi, called for efforts to prevent further escalation on the Korean peninsula.

The two men also stressed the need “to work toward easing the tension between the two Korean parties as well as for a resumption of six-party talks” in a telephone conversation today, according to an e-mailed statement from the Foreign Ministry in Moscow.

Earlier this week, Lavrov condemned the North Korea shelling while saying that South Korea had ignored a request to cancel military exercises. Yang called on North Korea and South Korea to remain calm, exercise restraint and resolve the situation through dialogue, China’s Foreign Ministry said on its website yesterday

Webmaster's Commentary:

This "call for restraint" is meant directly for the US government.

And note that this article doesn't mention that North Korea responded to a provocation by the South, courtesy of the South's shelling into disputed waters.

"Restraint" is the absolute antithesis of the US government's approach to the situation, in light of the fact that it has ordered the carrier group USS George Washington and 4 smaller warships into the region for exercises.

What is going on in Korea? This seems like a clear provocation by the US and South Korea. North Korea has declared the war games an act of war. Meanwhile even more carriers are headed to the Korean Peninsula.


S. Korean artillery mistakenly fired on DMZ

PAJU, South Korea, Nov. 28 (Yonhap) -- An artillery shot accidentally fired by a South Korean army unit fell on the South Korean side of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on Sunday afternoon, military officials said.

No casualties were reported from the accidental discharge that occurred at around 3 p.m., the officials said. An artillery unit stationed in the border town of Paju, Gyeonggi Province, mistakenly fired a shell that landed near Daeseong-dong, a civilian village on the southern side the DMZ dividing the two Koreas, they said.

North Korea lost 30% of its population as a result of US bombings in the 1950s

by Michel Chossudovsky

The World is at a dangerous crossroads.

The US is seeking a pretext to wage war on North Korea.

North Korea is said to constitute a threat to Global Security.

From the Truman Doctrine to Obama. The history of the 1950s Korean confirms that extensive war crimes were committed against the Korean people. As confirmed by the statement of General Curtis Lemay:

"Over a period of three years or so we killed off - what - twenty percent of the population."

North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s. US military sources confirm that 20 percent of North Korea's population was killed off over a three period of intensive bombings:

"After destroying North Korea's 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, "Over a period of three years or so we killed off - what - twenty percent of the population." It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 - 9 million people during the 37-month long "hot" war, 1950 - 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerance of another."2

During The Second World War the United Kingdom lost 0.94% of its population, France lost 1.35%, China lost 1.89% and the US lost 0.32%. During the Korean war, North Korea lost close to 30 % of its population.

As it reinvents itself for the 21st century, Nato is also redefining its threat assessments and its area of operations.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Russian leadership is many things, but not foolish. As reported on 30 November, 2010 at:

http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2010/11/russia-moves-small-nukes-close...

"While the U.S. and Russia have been publicly crowing about their awesome new friendship for the past two years, Moscow’s been moving small, ground-based nuclear weapons closer to the borders of Washington’s easternmost NATO allies."

"As recently as this spring, the Russians have moved their tactical nukes to sites close to their Western frontiers, alarming the Baltic and Eastern European members of NATO, the Wall Street Journal reports. Russia’s longstanding position is that it won’t pull its tactical nuclear weapons behind the Ural Mountains until the U.S. gets its own small nukes out of Europe. True totals of Russian tactical nuclear weapons is a tightly-held secret, but the Federation of American Scientists estimated last year that Moscow has nearly 5,400 of them, with about 2,000 deployed."

Unless the tension between Russia, China, and NATO is defused by some workable, verifiable treaty mechanism, we may well be looking at a recipe for disaster, culminating in a world war.

Revealing Canadian airport stories surface

The Canadian Press

OTTAWA - Bras were revealed, artificial joints probed and flesh squeezed, prompting scores of complaints last year from disgruntled Canadians subjected to physical searches at airports across the country.

Records obtained by The Canadian Press show the furor over intrusive screening patdowns is not limited to the United States, where angry travellers have openly objected to new security measures.

1,500 complaints

People who chose not to fly on Wed: UP 12% (chiffres de la AAA)

Aéroports très tranquilles, même pour la Thanksgiving.

And guess what?

Reports are scanners were roped off in some airports,
less people were selected for gate r***, and "pat downs"
were less invasive.

48% of Americans are seeking alternatives to flying.

Keep up the good work.

Stop flying.

Air travel down during the Thanksgiving holiday by 13 percent

According to AAA of the Carolinas, air travel is becoming less popular with Thanksgiving travelers, with about a 13 percent drop since 2000. They blame increased airline fees and tighter security measures for the decrease


Fliers Claim TSA Have Deactivated Body Scanners

According to tweeting travelers, many backscatter and millimeter-wave AIT scanning machines at airports are not in use at all, making opting out impossible.


BACKSCATTER MACHINES TURNED OFF TO FOIL OPT-OUT PROTESTERS!

Yeah, there are no problems today because backscatter machines are TURNED OFF at many airports and they are doing normal security procedures. Interesting that they'd rather risk people's safety than endure a PR disaster. By not giving people the chance to opt-out, they effectively take control of the story.

Webmaster's Commentary:

So, they turned off these machines for political reasons after insisting they were essential for our safety. Which, if you think about it, is a victory for the people.

Body scanner makers doubled lobbying cash over 5 years

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2010/11/report-body-scanner-makers-doubled-lobbying-cash-5-years/

Multimillion dollar government contracts don't just happen. Ask the companies with the big government contracts to supply Body-scanning machines to U.S. airports how much more they had to spend on lobbying on the Hill. Not only have they increased their lobbying efforts over the last 5 years, they're doing it with some very familiar names.

USA Today reports that the companies with the biggest government contracts for body-scanners doubled their lobbying cash over the last five years, and advanced their agenda with lobbyists Linda Daschle, a former FAA official and wife of former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, and former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.

Menstruating woman subjected to TSA grope because panty-liner obscured her vulva on pornoscanner

A self-described "rule follower" went through an airport pornoscanner wearing a panty-liner (she was menstruating). Because the hygienic item obscured the screener's view of her vagina vulva, she was made to endure a humiliating fondling, "so invasive that I was left crying and dealing with memories that I thought had been dealt with years ago of prior sexual assaults."


Woman claims breasts led to airport pat-down

A Maryland woman says she caught two male Transportation Security Administration workers eyeing her breasts before they pulled her aside for a pat-down at the Orlando International Airport.

"It was pretty obvious. One of the guys that was staring me up and down was the one who pulled me over," Eliana Sutherland told Florida television station Click Orlando. "Not a comfortable feeling."


TSA Worker Accused Of Assault Had Prior Record

Channel 2 Action News has learned a TSA security worker accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a woman had previously been convicted of misdemeanor harassment and stalking.

Randall King remains hospitalized following a suicide attempt. Police said last Wednesday, King agreed to drive a woman home from the airport. Instead, investigators said King took her to a MARTA station parking lot and placed novelty handcuffs on her.

Investigators said he drove her 50 miles away to his home in Troup County and sexually assaulted her. The woman told police that King gave her a suicide note, his car and let her go, investigators said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Basically, this tells us that the TSA isn't doing a very good job of checking out their own hires. So much for claims that this is all being done for reasons of security! Are they at least making sure that these perverts panting onto our private parts don't have communicable diseases?

TSA Agent Claims Videotaping Against the “Rules” Declares TSA Above The Law

The TSA has now been caught denying American citizens the right to videotape their encounters with airport security. It is very clear that TSA believes they are 100% above the law.

Forbes

My wife and I arrived at the airport for our annual Thanksgiving pilgrimage Tuesday evening, and like millions of others, came face-to-face with the TSA’s upgraded security measures. I breezed through; My wife, who apparently looks far more dangerous than I do, was pulled aside for a pat-down.


Southern Poverty Law Center Compares Videotaping Police with Domestic Terrorism

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a long history of demonizing legitimate patriots. They have shown their utter hatred for the Constitution time and time again.

In their latest hit piece they have taken their propaganda to the next level. Remember, the SPLC is actively working within the Department of Homeland Security, an agency created to take on the American people.

Videotaping police officers in a public area is a Constitutional right that the SPLC is attempting to destroy. Not only is this video despicable, it is a direct attack on citizens aiming to protect themselves from possible police brutality.

=== It's sick - plain and simple ===

There's been little discussion about the
euphemstically-named full-body "pat downs" taking
place in US airports as they effect CHILDREN.

We've put up numerous videos now of very young children
being stripped searched in public, touched against their
will, and, in any other place and under any other
circumstances, molested by TSA screeners.

Parents are counseled to tell their children that
these "screenings" are a game.

The US news media's comment on this?

Deafening silence.

Instead they ask us if we aren't being "too sensitive"
and tell us there needs to be a "balance between
security and privacy."

Children are being taught that anyone in uniform
has free access to their bodies...that they can't
say "no"...and that their parents are unable to protect
them.

In turn, parents are being taught that they
cannot protect their children.

The only word that comes to my mind to describe
this enterprise is "criminal."

Did not the TSA, Homeland Security, and the White
House (and the jackals in Congress that fund this
insanity) anticipate this as an outcome?

There are two possibilities here: either this is
official idiocy and arrogance of the highest order
or this outcome was anticipated and deemed acceptable.

I don't know the answer...but I do know that as a
governmenty agency that works closely with the CIA
and FBI, Homeland Security and the TSA have access
to hundreds of psychologists and psychiatrists,
in their employ, under contract, and available
at the drop of a dime.

I am not an expert in child abuse so I asked my
friend and colleague Kenneth Wooden for his comment.

Wooden is a former journalist and author of the
chilling and important book "The Children of Jonestown."

His experience covering the Jonestown story and seeing
the hundreds of children's coffins that came back from
Guyana motivated him to create a training company that
teaches children how to identify and protect themselves
from predators.

I asked him what he thinks of the TSA's policy of
commanding its employees to strip search and conduct
full body "pat downs" of small children.

I specifically asked him his opinion of the TSA
advising that young children be told that these officially
sanctioned intrusions of their bodies are a game.

Wooden's answer follows...

=== The TSA has crossed the line ===

As a national child personal safety expert, I submit the TSA
crosses the line when it allows the patting down of children for
security reasons, cloaked as a game.

The most recent Gallup Poll on childhood abuse revealed that in just one
year, more than a million children were sexually and physically abused.
Along the same lines, the American Medical Association has referred to the
rape and sexual exploitation of women and children as a "violent and silent
epidemic." Men increasingly reveal how they were sexually assaulted in
their youth, by a rainbow of sexual predators, usually someone they knew.

Given that background - and the number of survivors that have been sexually
abused and exploited - it is beyond comprehension how the Homeland Security
Agency's TSA can conceive of such insensitive and invasive security checks
on our children and youth. Even worse, they want to depict pat downs of
children as a game! As an investigative researcher/reporter who has
interviewed well over a thousand sexual offenders, I can document that one
of the favorite ploys to lure children and youth into sexual abuse is to
disguise it as a "game."

How can experts working at the TSA be so incredibly misinformed and
misguided to suggest that full body pat downs for children be portrayed as a
game?!To do so is completely contrary to what we in the sexual abuse
prevention field have been trying to accomplish for the past thirty years.
Such policy could essentially desensitize children to inappropriate touch
and ultimately make it easier for sexual offenders to prey on our children.
This policy is also incredibly insensitive to the countless victims who have
already been traumatized by unwanted touching in their lives and could be
re-traumatized by such pat-downs.

In my judgment as a lifelong journalist and child advocate, such unapprised
actions by the TSA borders on criminal negligence and, legally speaking,
"deliberate indifference to the future emotional well being of millions of
victims and the potential for far too many more young victims."

As far as I know, this issue is not being discussed

The TSA, and the entire US government White House and

Sécurité aérienne - Atteinte à la liberté et sécurité des voyageurs

- par Collectif d'auteurs - 2010-11-30

http://www.mondialisation.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=22185

Le projet de loi C-42, présentement à l'étude au Comité permanent des transports, de l'infrastructure et des collectivités, permettra aux compagnies aériennes de remettre toutes les informations qu'elles détiennent sur les passagers au département de la Sécurité intérieure (Homeland Security) des États-Unis pour les vols qui ne font que survoler le territoire des États-Unis. Les compagnies devront remettre ces informations à Homeland Security avant le décollage et ne pourront permettre aux passagers de monter à bord avant d'avoir reçu l'approbation de celui-ci.

Les médias se repaissent d'histoires croustillantes depuis que les voyageurs aux États-Unis sont contraints de choisir entre les «scanneurs corporels» et la fouille manuelle, qui exige que les agents de sécurité palpent leurs fesses, leurs parties génitales et leurs seins. Étant donné que l'inspection, visuelle ou manuelle, de ces parties du corps est une violation grossière de la dignité et de l'intimité des personnes et qu'elle n'apporte aucun avantage en matière de sécurité au dire de nombreux experts, le tollé qui secoue, à juste titre, l'opinion publique ne cesse de prendre de l'ampleur. Cependant, chaque fois que l'on a voulu discuter de ces questions à froid, le débat s'est limité à définir ce qui constituait des mesures de sécurité sensées et raisonnables. Il est donc impératif d'examiner les conséquences pour la population canadienne du Programme de protection des passagers des États-Unis, connu sous le nom de Secure Flight Program.


Beating the TSA: How a determined passenger spent hours arguing his rights before being waved through the checks

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1332276/Beating-TSA-How-determined-passenger-spent-hours-arguing-rights-waved-checks.html

'Maybe it was the video of the three-year old getting molested, maybe it was the sexual assault victim having to cry her way through getting groped, maybe it was the father watching teenage TSA officers joke about his attractive daughter.

'Whatever it was, this issue didn’t sit right with me. We shouldn’t be required to do this simply to get into our own country.'

As a result, Mr Kernan informed staff he did not want to go through the infamous Backscatter imaging machine.

He was told he would have to undergo an invasive pat-down search, but again politely told staff that he would consider any contact with his genital areas as assault.

After being told that the two options were TSA policy, he replied: ' I disagree with the policy, and I think that it is unconstitutional.

'As a US citizen, I have the right to move freely within my country as long as I can demonstrate proof of citizenship and have demonstrated no reasonable cause to be detained.'

As the situation escalated further airport police were called and more senior TSA officials but Mr Kernan refused to back down, remaining calm throughout.

Eventually causing a stand-off between police and TSA officers over who should resolve the situation, Mr Kernan was told by a superviser: 'Here’s what we’re going to do. I’m going to escort you out of the terminal to the public area.

'You are to stay with me at all times. Do you understand?'

He was then escorted by the police and no less than 13 TSA officer through security without a hand laid on him.

He said: 'And then came the most ridiculous scene of which I’ve ever been a part.

'I gather my things – jacket, scarf, hat, briefcase, chocolates.

'We walk over to the staff entrance and he scans his badge to let me through. We walk down the long hallway that led back to the baggage claim area. We skip the escalators and moving walkways.'

He was then waved away by annoyed officers and said: 'In order to enter the US, I was never touched, I was never “Backscatted,” and I was never metal detected.

'In the end, it took 2.5 hours, but I proved that it is possible. I’m looking forward to my next flight on Wednesday.'

The passenger's success shows that even senior TSA staff are unsure to handle awkward passengers who question the legality of the checks.


Doctors sound TSA germ alert Dangers include syphilis, lice, viruses, ringworm

Syphilis, lice, gonorrhea, ringworm, chlamydia, staph, strep, noro and papilloma viruses all are part of the possible fringe benefits when airline passengers next go through a full hands-on pat-down by agents of the federal government's Transportation Security Administration, according to doctors.

WND reported two days ago on alarmed passengers who noted that TSA agents doing the pat-downs that have been described by critics as molestation since they include touching private body parts were not changing gloves between passengers. In fact, some apparently were patting down dozens of passengers or more wearing the same gloves.


Police State USA: TSA Gestapo Empire

TSA is a far greater threat to Americans than are terrorists. Pistole has given the finger to US senators and representatives, state legislators, and the traveling public who have expressed their views that virtual strip searches and sexual molestation are too high a price to pay for “security.” Indeed, the TSA with its Gestapo attitude and methods, is succeeding in making Americans more terrified of the TSA than they are of terrorists.

Make up your own mind. What terrifies you the most. Terrorists, who in all likelihood you will never encounter in your lifetime, or the TSA that you will encounter every time you fly and soon, according to Pistole, every time you take a train, a subway, or drive in a car or truck?


UCSF professors raise safety concerns about backscatter x-ray scanners.

Unlike a medical X-ray, the TSA X-ray machines are a sci-fi fan's dream: they are lower-energy beams that can only penetrate clothing and the topmost layers of skin. This provides TSA agents with a view that would expose any explosives concealed by clothing. But according to the UCSF professors, the low-energy rays do a "Compton scatter" off tissue layers just under the skin, rather than the bone, possibly exposing some vital areas and leaving the tissues at risk of mutation.

When an X-ray Compton scatters, it doesn't shift an electron to a higher energy level; instead, it hits the electron hard enough to dislodge it from its atom. The authors note that this process is "likely breaking bonds," which could cause mutations in cells and raise the risk of cancer.

Because the X-rays only make it just under the skin's surface, the total volume of tissue responsible for absorbing the radiation is fairly small. The professors point out that many body parts that are particularly susceptible to cancer are just under the surface, such as breast tissue and testicles. They are also concerned with those over 65, as well as children, being exposed to the X-rays.

Colorado Lawyer Files For Injunction Against DHS and TSA

In his complaint, he details his personal story of how he and his daughters were treated during an "enhanced pat down" by the TSA on a recent trip to San Diego, describing the TSA agents' behavior as "disgusting, unconscionable, sexual in nature, unnecessary and a complete violation of his and his children's constitutional rights."

Facts:

* The FBI does not use scanners to protect its headquarters
in Washington DC - it uses bomb sniffing dogs which are
not only cheaper, they are infinitely more reliable

* In Iraq and Afghanistan where suicide bombers are a real
problem, the US military does not use electronics to detect them,
they use bomb-sniffing dogs

* In Russia, the site of the supposed "bra bomber," the
response has been to bring in bomb-sniffing dogs
NOT to molest random women travelers.

How could is possibly be more clear?

The scanners and gropings are NOT proper security
measures - the FBI knows it, the US military knows
it, and the military air security in Russia knows it.
