Ammunition To Fight Mobile Phone Masts

People everywhere are waking up to the RF-induced misery from cell towers -

then they fight back and win!

Common cell tower RF energy complaints include:

* Clusters of cancer
* Lack of sleep and insomnia
* Noises induced into the head and other health problems.

Several decades ago, mind control experiments proved that microwave energy
is detected by the brain.

Many are actively fighting these structures as cell companies attempt to place
them dangerously near schools, playgrounds and homes. Here are a few victory
stories from the USA and UK which prove that people are finally realizing these
health hazards and are fighting back:

Army 'Homeland' Troops Deploy on Oct 1st Against Americans

The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.

Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.

Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.

It is not the first time an active-duty unit has been tapped to help at home. In August 2005, for example, when Hurricane Katrina unleashed hell in Mississippi and Louisiana, several active-duty units were pulled from various posts and mobilized to those areas.

The really interesting bit comes a bit later on and I quote

"They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Stewart and includes specialty tasks such as knowing how to use the “jaws of life” to extract a person from a mangled vehicle; extra medical training for a CBRNE incident; and working with U.S. Forestry Service experts on how to go in with chainsaws and cut and clear trees to clear a road or area.
The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them."

Here we go folks !

Wake Up America !!!

AMERICAN DREAM DEBT & DELUSION

The Trap - Behind the Curtain

All the financial markets are showing green lights, joyous profits! Have real profits returned to the world markets! NO, this is a response to the proclamation, underwritten yesterday by the central banks with $247 billion: What an insignificant amount to pay to guarantee tens of trillions in illegal profits down the road. Yet apparently the gullible, determined-to-believe-followers have apparently taken the bait!

This is a trap of global proportions designed to complete the shell game over 'the ownership society's' claims on everything that matters, to them. What's at stake is the future of everyone who works, all pension funds, and any remaining idea of retirement after the public has been irrevocably chained to a bailout plan that has no limits!
"US government policy has encouraged recklessness - most recently by taking extraordinary measures to privatize gains while socializing losses. As part of the agenda of its so-called ownership society (excepting ownership of responsibility by powerful bankers and insurers who fail) the govt. even sought to privatize public obligations - recall the Bush proposal to privatize social security. So why not play fast and loose if the rules are heads I win tails you lose?" (1)

The European Gulag is Born

With all the chaos in the financial sector, it is easy to overlook the extremely disturbing information that quietly slipped into the mainstream news last week about the accelerating enforcement of the European Arrest Warrant System.
The system itself is not new, having been passed into law by Parliament on 1st January 2005, but what is new is the process of “trial in absentia,” to which our Attorney General has just offered full support.
Coming as it does in the midst of all the other multifaceted crises that we are facing with the ongoing collapse of the global financial system, the accelerating erosion of our civil liberties and the breakdown of our society into an anarchic mob of enraged, psycopathic yahoos: the direction and intent of these legal maneuvers by the EU bureaucracy simply cannot be denied any longer. It is absolutely clear that we are witnessing the installation of a legal system straight from the pages of Kafka, a system that will immediately go into high gear on the day that the Lisbon treaty comes into legal effect, with the accession to the EU presidency of the first unelected dictator of Pan Europa.
With this in mind, we can fully expect British political dissidents, artists, writers and journalists of all stripes to be targeted, demonised, tried in absentia at some kangaroo court in the nether regions of the emerging EUSSR, and deported without further due process - all in the name of “consistency with the EU,” according to our (quite clearly unqualified politically or morally for the position) “Attorney General.”
Well, it’s nice to know that we will be “consistent” with all the other former nation states of Europe on our way to hell. We wouldn’t want to be left out of all the fun, after all, would we?

The Time Is Now

If there ever was a time for action, it is now. Our country is on the verge of extinction; the way of life we have known and taken for granted is quickly disappearing forever in the dark cloud of fascism and corporatocracy. So much so that we hardly even notice it because of the burden we carry of propping up the rich and privileged at our own expense in these times.
It is true that the greatest form of patriotism is dissent, and we must all be patriots at this dire hour if we are to save the America that our ancestors fought to sustain. Our youth are giving their blood for lies, making the world a more dangerous and less stable place instead of promoting ‘democracy’ in the world as we have been told is their mission.
It is time to stand up for what is right – freedom, prosperity, and peace. LIBERTY.

Schoolchildren could be given 'smart drugs' in a bid to boost brainpower



Schools will soon have to ensure all pupils have access to brain-enhancing 'smart drugs', according to officially funded experts.
They said teachers risk claims of bias against poorer children if they fail to give all pupils the same chance to take a new generation of pills which boost attention, concentration and memory.
Researchers predict that within a generation, cognition enhancing drugs - or 'cogs' - will be so advanced that parents and teachers will be able to 'manipulate biology' to enhance pupils' brainpower.

But schools will have to address 'ethical issues about haves and have-nots', said the scientists led by Bristol University.
'If "cogs" are only available to those who can afford them, what does this mean for equality?' their report asked.
'It may be unethical to deny the chance for pupils to take advantage of such enhancements.
'Educators will at least need to know about what smart drugs are being taken by their pupils.

Police chief attacked by a Government watchdog... for sending officers to every reported crime

A chief constable who slashed crime by ordering officers to visit every single victim has been accused of wasting resources.
Roger Baker, the head of the Essex force, has been criticised in a watchdog’s report that claimed the hugely popular policy was not an efficient use of time.
Since Mr Baker took charge three years ago there have been 13,000 fewer victims of crime in the county and residents are delighted with his back-to-basics tactics.
But a report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary said: ‘While attending every crime is ahighly effective method of engagement, it is felt by a number of staff interviewed that taking a statementat each crime is not always necessary and can be time-consuming.’

Old People With Dementia Have A Duty To Die And Should Be Pushed Towards Death, says Baroness Warnock

Elderly people with dementia are 'wasting' the lives of those who have to care for them, one of the country's most influential experts on medical ethics said yesterday.
Baroness Warnock said that for the old and sick who are contemplating dying, 'there is nothing wrong with feeling you ought to do so'.
Her remarks in an interview with a church journal were the first public suggestion from any expert with close links to Whitehall that euthanasia should not only be legal but that elderly people should be pressed towards death.
Lady Warnock said: 'If you are demented, you are wasting people's lives, your family's lives, and you are wasting the resources of the National Health Service.'
Her remarks were condemned as 'shocking ignorance' and 'barbaric' by Alzheimer's charities.

Chalabi: U.S. Wants Secret Bases in Iraq

Former Iraqi Deputy Premier Ahmad Chalabi told Iranian state-owned media Friday the United States is seeking to establish secret military bases in Iraq.In an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency, Chalabi, once a Washington favorite, said U.S. officials are trying to inject agreements for secret bases in Iraq as part of the long-term security contract slated to govern U.S.-Iraqi relations when the U.N. mandate there expires at the end of this year."Within the framework of the security pact, the United States does not wish to merely have open military bases (in Iraq), rather secret military bases (there)," he said.He said negotiations on the deal were ongoing following the acceptance of a formal draft agreement in August but noted there were still contentious issues surrounding legal authority over U.S. military forces and the use of Iraq as a staging ground for the broader counter-terrorism effort.

Guardian Angels Are Here, Say Most Americans

More than half of all Americans believe they have been helped by a guardian angel in the course of their lives, according to a new poll by the Baylor University Institute for Studies of Religion. In a poll of 1700 respondents, 55% answered affirmatively to the statement, "I was protected from harm by a guardian angel." The responses defied standard class and denominational assumptions about religious belief; the majority held up regardless of denomination, region or education — though the figure was a little lower (37%) among respondents earning more than $150,000 a year.

The Illuminati Are Making a Killing on This Crisis


The price tag for bailing out the US financial system may exceed $1.3 trillion dollars.
The purchase price for the mortgage lenders, Bear Stearns and AIG is over $300 billion. Now the assumption of the bad loans held by the banks may cost an additional trillion dollars. If the US Treasury created its own money, this might be bearable. But last I heard the system of money creation has not changed. I'm not an economist but it seems that the Fed is making a killing on our banking woes. The Fed is creating this "money" out of thin air and using it to buy US Treasury Notes and Bonds. The Treasury (i.e. US taxpayer) are on the hook for these securities plus interest. So while it looks like the Fed is riding to our rescue, in fact it is doing a very brisk business. And the US is falling so far into "debt" that political independence is a thing of the past. The central bankers appear to be trying to fend off a Depression. Perhaps they want to postpone the financial breakdown for reasons of their own. As a friend said, "I guess they want their shit bomb to explode after the election." If we see the Treasury as merely a front for the Fed, then the country seems to be increasingly owned by a foreign central banking cartel. They will own all those houses at bargain prices. A form of Communism (i.e. state ownership) is being created in response to a manufactured crisis. Formally the assets whill be owned by the state, but who controls the state?

Thats Rich - Lady De Rothschild Calls Obama ' Elitist'

It’s the strongest signal yet from the global elite about who they want in the White House.
Former Hillary Clinton backer Lynn Forester de Rothschild (right) threw her support behind Republican U.S. presidential candidate John McCain today, after calling Democratic candidate Barack Obama an “elitist.”
That’s got to be a first for a Rothschild, unless there is a “down-to-earth” member of the family I haven’t heard about

Planned Parenthood's Dirty Little Secrets

Planned Parenthood, an organization that claims to promote women’s health and well-being, has a deeply stained history of racism, hatred and lies.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, summed up the purpose of her organization with this statement: “More children from the fit, less from the unfit.”
It sounds like something out of Nazi Germany, like eugenics or creating a master race. Sanger founded the American Birth Control League in 1923, which later became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. She was a passionate advocate for eugenics, a movement that essentially tried to wipe out any human being deemed genetically “unfit.”

Another well-known fan of eugenics? Adolf Hitler.

How Dare They Spend Trillions on Corporate Welfare, Without...?

They're spending over a trillion dollars to rescue doddering, failed companies that deserve to die. How dare they-- the congress-- allow the Fed and the Whitehouse to spend so much without oversight. In times like we are experiencing tough, visionary leadership is needed and we're not seeing it.

The Whitehouse, with the help and support of the deservedly most unpopular congress in recent history, is planning a huge rescue for the finance industry. Reuters already estimates that rescue has exceeded a trillion dollars in cost. How dare they? How dare they give corporate welfare on such an obscene scale without a whimper of question or challenge from legislatrs on either side of the aisle, while a fraction of that budget could be used to provide health care to every American. How dare they throw good money after bad when a trillion dollar investment could subsidize hybrid cars for a hundred million people and just about eliminate our dependence on foreign oil. How dare they, when a trillion dollars-- and they're not finished yet-- could be invested at $5 million a company, in 200,000 energy saver start up companies. And instead, they save a handful of rotting, dying institutions run by failures.

How dare they double the ante on the loan to the automobile manufacturers, to $50 billion without DEMANDING-- yes absolutely requiring-- that they up the mileage dramatically, beyong the pathetic goals currently set within the existing cafe standards (Up to 35 MPG by 2020.) Are they idiots? If a vendor comes to me and asks me for double the size of the loan or payment, I ask what more am I getting in return?

Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Stenny Hoyer, Charlie Rangel... do your goddamned jobs and stop this crazy, stupid, panic-stricken rescue mentality that is wrong, wrong, wrong. They say that if AIG wasn't saved that chaos would have ensued. Chaos is not always a bad thing. The alternative is lack of chaos and in biology, that's a sure sign of morbidity. Maybe it seemed easier to let AIG fail. Maybe it would have been scary for a time. But NO institution is or should be immortal. When one becomes so obviously unable to function in a healthy, successful way, it is time, like with a dying human, to let it go. Keeping it alive is the antithesis of good judgemnt and certainly, converting it to a government managed entity, is the antithesis of conservatism's most basic principles. But since the leadership of the conservative, or should I say faux/former conservative party is leading the way in the socialization of the finance and securities industry, I say, don't stop there. While you're at it, take the leap and do something FOR the American people.

Give the American people health care. Spend $100 or $200 billion on it, whatever it takes. I dare any Republican who has remained silent as the finance industry has become socialized to complain about health care being socialized. I dare any Democrat (Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank,Henry Waxman and any bluedog democrat) to NOT speak out demanding approval of the legislation. There's a bill that's pending-- HB 676 and it could be passed posthaste. Do it, damn it! Enough of this finding money for doddering, senile corporations to protect foreign investors.

Just do it.

Paulson plan could cost $1 trillion

Congressional leaders said after meeting Thursday evening with Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that as much as $1 trillion could be needed to avoid an imminent meltdown of the U.S. financial system. Paulson announced plans Friday morning for a "bold approach" that will cost hundreds of billions of dollars. At a news conference at Treasury headquarters, he called for a "temporary asset relief program" to take bad mortgages off the books of the nation's financial institutions. Congressional leaders had left Washington on Friday, but Paulson planned to confer with them over the weekend.
"We're talking hundreds of billions," Paulson told reporters. "This needs to be big enough to make a real difference and get to the heart of the problem."

US: Pakistan boosting atom bomb ability

Pakistan is building supplementary plutonium-producing reactors to enhance its ability to produce more atomic bombs, a US report says. Pakistan is close to completing a second plutonium-producing reactor, and is well into building a third, and these reactors could increase its ability to make atomic bombs, the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) said in a report, the local media highlighted Friday. A row of cooling towers indicated the second reactor was close to completion and could be ready to operate in a year's time, according to Washington group's report. The 10-page report estimated the reactors would run on power of “about 100-megawatts or more”, which could enable the two combined to yield plutonium for 8 to 10 atomic bombs a year.

LEHMAN EXECS TO LEAD SLIGHTLY LESS OPULENT LIFESTYLES

EXECUTIVES at Lehman Brothers could be forced to manually adjust the seating temperature in their Mercedes, it was claimed last night.

As America's fourth largest investment bank collapsed, the management team have downgraded their executive limousine orders for next year insisting they can no longer afford the automatic body heat regulator and the climate controlled glove box.Lehman chief executive Dick Fuld said: "Be in no doubt, the long term effects of this collapse are going to be awful. For you.
"You're going to lose your job, your dignity and possibly your home. I don't need a job - per se - but I will miss accumulating more money than I and all my descendants could ever reasonably spend.

"I don't know what I'd do if I hadn't spent my career paying myself millions of dollars and accruing a vast personal fortune while taking pointless risks with people's hard earned savings.

"But I hope my unimaginable wealth and wide ranging property portfolio will make your extreme hardship that bit easier to bear."Would you be happier if I sat out the recession in Acapulco or Martha's Vineyard? Please do let me know."
He added: "But it won't all be plain sailing. Though, it has to be said, I will be doing quite a lot of plain sailing, especially in early June. Do you sail?
"Next year's Mercedes is already looking distinctly shabby, while this winter in Aspen we may have to 'eat in' one night. We've decided to open a tin of macaroni cheese and pretend to be ordinary.
"Fuld said he would also be able to devote more time to his role with New York charity the Robin Hood Foundation, which, he insisted, was not 'some sick fucking joke'.

Ron Paul Blasts “Secret Government” Running Economy

Congressman Ron Paul has issued a stinging address concerning the financial crisis in which he outlines how the current economic problems, created via malinvestment and shift to a debt based economy, are now being mismanaged by private interests in secret.
What’s more he says he is not sure the Federal Reserve has any idea what to do next and that the Congress is totally oblivious to the whole sorry state of affairs - a cocktail of elements he warns puts the middle class of America in serious jeopardy.
“Today we had a lot of financial fireworks in the markets, a lot of things are going on, and I think we are in the middle of something very big.” the Congressman stated.
Speaking on the recent collapse and government bailout of several big financial institutions he warned:
“We’re talking about big bucks, we’re not talking about hundreds of millions or even hundreds of billions, we’re talking about trillions of dollars, the obligation is immeasurable.”

Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence


Chart 1 reveals the linear connection between the Rothschilds and the Bank of England, and the London banking houses which ultimately control the Federal Reserve Banks through their stockholdings of bank stock and their subsidiary firms in New York. The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn,Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914. These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks. Examination of the charts and text in the House Banking Committee Staff Report of August, 1976 and the current stockholders list of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks show this same family control.


The Revolution Begins At Home - 10 Things You Can Do To Change The World

“Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead
What does it mean, when 12,000 people in one week are attracted to read an article with a far-out topic like Toppling the New World Order: A Vision for How We Can Do It, out of all the other things they could be reading about? When the piece ranked #21 out of 3.5-million WordPress blogs? It means we’re powerful, Truthers. It means our numbers are huge. It means you are not alone out there, knowing the things that threaten this world and wanting to do something about it! Such numbers are cause for much hope.
The next question: what happens when those 12,000 people decide to get busy? Okay, let’s cut the numbers to be realistic. Let’s assume out of 12,000 readers, 2 out of 12 are too scared to act, another 2 aren’t sure there’s a conspiracy, 2 are fatalists who think nothing can stop the train wreck, 2 are too lazy to leave their computer chair, and 2 believe the world will be fine if they just sit home and think happy thoughts. That still leaves 2,000 people out of 12,000 who are serious, who know the need for action and are wondering how to get started. 2,000 seed people, ready to create a better world.

Anger as council turns off streetlights to save cash

Powys A council has been criticised after it decided to switch off most of its streetlights during the night to save money. Powys County Council will turn off 64 per cent of its lamps, which could save £225,000 a year.
The scheme means that its 14,000 working lights will be reduced to 5,000. One local pensioner, Dennis Cleaton, 75, of Llandrindod Wells, called the blackouts ridiculous.

Banned by the goggle police: How Health and Safety has stopped a man swimming in his local pool after 30 years

He's been swimming all around the world and never caused a ripple of concern.
But Roland Grimm hadn't reckoned on the goggle police at his local pool.
His special mask stops water going up his nose and has a single eye piece which does not press against his face.
But now, almost inevitably, it has fallen foul of the 'elf and safety enforcers.
Their ban on his mask has left Mr Grimm, who has been swimming at the leisure centre in Swiss Cottage, North London, for 30 years, high and dry.
He said: 'I've used these goggles in more than 100 different pools in countries including Germany, Spain, France and Portugal and no one else has ever complained or questioned why I am using them.
'I'm not allowed to wear them here because they cover my nose. They just don't seem to like the shape of the frame.
'I'm very upset because it seems mad. I like to swim every day and this is messing up my whole life.'
But pool bosses defended their decision to eject Mr Grimm - declaring his goggles were not shatterproof and breached industry guidelines.

'Thieves' stealing wheelie bins from backgardens turn out to be COUNCIL snoops searching for illegal dustbins

But when the thieves were unmasked, their identities proved to be something a shock.
The two men responsible were council officers assigned to secretly snoop in back gardens.
They were employed to find out which residents were using extra 'unauthorised' wheelie bins to dispose of their rubbish – and took those bins away if they considered them to be unlawful.

AN AMERICA THAT CAN SAY NO


There is no freedom without the freedom to say "no". Free people can say "no". Slaves cannot.
If we are free, or at least free enough that the terrorists hate us for it, then we have the right and ability and often the moral duty to say "no". We have the right to say "no" to being lied to. We have the right to say "no" to being lied into war. Certainly we have a right to say "no" when the government demands that we make do with less, so that the government and its favored cronies may have more.
Right now, the government is preparing to "fix" the economic mess by setting up a new Resolution Trust Corporation. For those too young to remember, this is a repeat of the same scam used to "fix" the S&L Debacle (remember the Keating Five?) back in the 1980s. And in short it was simply going around with a checkbook filled with taxpayer dollars and cleaning up the mess made by reckless deal making (and a little CIA drug money laundering) in a climate of relaxed regulation.
So, here we are, 20 years later, yet another Bush in the White House and a repeat of the same fiscal debacle stares us in the face. More than coincidence? Many think so.
The mere rumor of a new RTC sent the stock market soaring. Why not? The US Government is telling the investors that they can keep the profits from any trades, but any further losses will get transferred to the taxpayers. It's like being in Las Vegas at the Blackjack table, and every time you get 21 or beat the dealer, you get to keep the winnings, but if you bust, or the dealer wins, they take the money from the bus boy cleaning the table behind you. Such a deal! What's not to like?
Unless you are that bus boy, of course.

The Lies Of Hiroshima Are The Lies Of Today - By John Pilger

In an article for the Guardian on the anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, John Pilger describes the 'progression of lies' from the dust of that detonated city, to the wars of today - and the threatened attack on Iran.When I first went to Hiroshima in 1967, the shadow on the steps was still there. It was an almost perfect impression of a human being at ease: legs splayed, back bent, one hand by her side as she sat waiting for a bank to open. At a quarter past eight on the morning of August 6, 1945, she and her silhouette were burned into the granite. I stared at the shadow for an hour or more, then walked down to the river and met a man called Yukio, whose chest was still etched with the pattern of the shirt he was wearing when the atomic bomb was dropped.He and his family still lived in a shack thrown up in the dust of an atomic desert. He described a huge flash over the city, "a bluish light, something like an electrical short", after which wind blew like a tornado and black rain fell. "I was thrown on the ground and noticed only the stalks of my flowers were left. Everything was still and quiet, and when I got up, there were people naked, not saying anything. Some of them had no skin or hair. I was certain I was dead." Nine years later, when I returned to look for him, he was dead from leukaemia.

FEMA Says No to Ice For Hurricane Survivors

Hurricane survivors are being put at risk in Texas and other hot weather states because the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is no longer providing ice in relief situations, say watchdogs, relief workers and local leaders in Hurricane Alley.

Scientists Study 'Out Of Body Experiences'

Doctors in hospitals in Britain and the US will study 1,500 heart attack patients to see if people with no heartbeat or brain activity can have "out of body" experiences.
Some people report being able to soar out of their bodies and look down on themselves and medical staff.
The study at 25 UK and US hospitals will include doctors placing images on shelves that are only visible from the ceiling to test the theory.
Dr Sam Parnia, an intensive care doctor who is heading the study, said: "If you can demonstrate that consciousness continues after the brain switches off, it allows for the possibility that the consciousness is a separate entity.

UN criticism irks US envoy

The US's UN Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad has scolded the new president of the UN General Assembly over his recent anti-US comments. Khalilzad told Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua, the new chair of the 192-member assembly that his role was "to facilitate the discussions, follow the rules, to do things that make this organization work and bring people together." Tuesday, d'Escoto opened the General Assembly's 63rd session with a veiled but stinging attack on the United States. "It makes no sense to wage wars of aggression that kills hundreds of thousands of people with the purported aim of supporting democracy, while at the same time using every imaginable means and pretexts to prevent a process to democratize the United Nations itself," he told delegates. "We will continue to stress that the decentralization which the United Nations so urgently needs will entail decentralizing the power accumulated in a small group of states," d'Escoto added.

After Vows To Respect Sovereignty, U.S. Strikes Again In Pakistan

A U.S. missile strike Wednesday in Pakistan further inflamed relations between the two anti-terrorism allies, just hours after the American military chief vowed to "respect Pakistan's sovereignty."
The strike against suspected militants in Pakistan's tribal area, which runs along the Afghan border, is thought to be the sixth such attack this month. It came as Washington is demanding that Islamabad do more to prevent Taliban and al Qaida extremists from using its territory.

Oxford University: 'We can't take many more working-class students without dropping our standards'

Standards in state schools must rise before Oxford can take many more working-class students, the university has warned.
Admissions chiefs said there was 'a finite pool' of candidates who are qualified for places at Oxford and most already apply.
Mike Nicholson, director of admissions, warned that on its own Oxford would be unable to change dramatically the social make-up of students.

Government offers up a solution for fortnightly bin collections... the kitchen slop bucket

Every family will keep a kitchen slop bucket according to plans for the future of rubbish collections published by Government advisers.
Food scraps and leftovers put in the buckets will be collected once a week - but the rest of the refuse will be picked up once a fortnight.
The prospect of a weekly slop bucket round moved closer after the Whitehall recycling agency WRAP declared a £1.6million trial a success.

'Let's grow up with Nisha and Joe': The first ever sex pamphlet for 6-year-olds is being sent to primary schools

The first sex education pamphlet for six-year-olds is being marketed to primary schools to encourage teachers to start sex lessons earlier.
The comic, from the former Family Planning Association, includes illustrations of a naked girl and boy and invites youngsters to label the genitals.
The group, now called the fpa, is producing 50,000 copies of Let's Grow with Nisha and Joe in an initial print run and promoting it to schools across the UK.
The fpa insisted the 12-page comic, designed for use in school and at home by six and seven-year-olds, was a 'gentle introduction'.
But angry parents condemned it as 'too much too young' and warned against robbing children of their innocence

Video: Settlers raid 'Asira al-Qibliya and attack residents, Sept. '08

Over the past year, settlers from Yitzhar and the surrounding area have sharply stepped up violent acts in nearby Palestinian villages. The attacks include throwing stones at passing cars, physically attacking farmers, burning down crops, and stealing livestock. On 14 Sept., after a Palestinian stabbed a Jewish boy and burnt down a caravan in the Shalhevet Yam settlement near Yitzhar, dozens of settlers raided the village of 'Asira al-Qibliya. They threw stones, fired into the air, broke windows, drew Stars of David on walls of homes and widely damaged property. Testimonies given to B’Tselem indicate that soldiers were present at the time, yet did nothing to prevent the settlers' actions, and fired at the Palestinians.


Bush family cleaning up on transfer of public lands to private hands

WMR has learned from a senior Democratic congressional source that the Bush family, most notably former President George H. W. Bush, is reaping windfall profits from the transfer of title of public federal and state lands to private hands. The elder Bush, according to our sources, has a vested financial interest in land title companies that specialize in the transfer of public lands to private interests.
The revelations represent the first evidence that the elder Bush has benefited from the transfer of public lands to private hands in a giant scheme to defraud federal and state governments, as well as the American taxpayers and Native Americans.
The land-grabbing scheme primarily involves the transfer of federal lands, including Native American lands and national forest system lands, in the Rocky Mountain West, state lands in Texas, and both federal and state lands in California, Mississippi, and Florida to private entities. The scheme is also at the center of the scandal surrounding jailed GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff who conspired to privatize federal lands and assets around the country to benefit his corporate clients.

Fears Of Further Financial Casualties Abound

Fears that further financial casualties were inevitable abounded on Wall Street this morning as shares in Morgan Stanley appeared to be in freefall and the US Government reportedly asked big banks to put together a rescue buyout of Washington Mutual.
Shares in US investment bank Morgan Stanley were down by 40.63 per cent this morning at $17.04 while its larger rival Goldman Sachs fell by 21.9 per cent, even after both reported better-than-expected earnings yesterday. The cost of protecting Morgan Stanley and Goldman’s debt also spiked.
The US Government has asked big banks, including HSBC, to put together a rescue buyout of Washington Mutual, the American lender, according to a report.
The banks involved include Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase and HSBC but the report in the New York Post said that no deal talks were being held between the banks and WaMu.

Stuck at a level crossing? Turn off the engine or pay £20 fine

Motorists who leave their engines idling unnecessarily face an on-the-spot fine under plans being considered by councillors.
West Sussex County Council is seeking to reduce exhaust emissions by penalising drivers who refuse to turn off their engines while parked or waiting at railway crossings.
A pilot scheme expected to be introduced in January will allow traffic wardens to fine motorists who break the new rule.
A council spokesman said: “We want to get people out of the habit of leaving their cars ticking over out of convenience.”
Signs are already in place at level crossings ordering people to switch their engines off.
“We would stress that this is just an investigation at this stage,” the spokesman said. “If it was ever introduced the fixed penalty would probably be £20. But we would hope that the vast majority of motorists would be willing to cooperate.”
An Air Quality Management Area has already been set up in Shoreham, where the trial will take place. It will be expanded across the county if it proves successful.

Gates: U.S. To Send More Troops To Afghanistan


ABOARD A MILITARY AIRCRAFT - The United States intends to send many more combat forces to Afghanistan next year, regardless of whether troop levels in Iraq are cut further this year, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Friday.
It is the first time the Bush administration has made such a commitment for 2009.
Gates, speaking to reporters on his way to Muscat, Oman, from a NATO summit in Bucharest, Romania, said President Bush made the pledge at the summit on Thursday.
Bush was not specific about the number of additional troops that would go to Afghanistan in 2009, Gates said. The United States now has about 31,000 troops there — the most since the war began in October 2001 — and has been pressing the allies to contribute more.

Jewish settlers burn Palestinian olive trees, IOF troops round up more civilians

Settlers of the Israeli settlement of Itamar, south of Nablus city, on Sunday burnt olive groves in the village of Awarta as Israeli occupation forces continued to kidnap Palestinian citizens in the West Bank.
Hebrew media reported that owners of those trees had agreed with the IOF and the so-called civil administration of the West Bank to harvest their olive trees next month but the settlers were quick to burn those trees on Sunday. Local sources reported that the Israeli settlers burnt 70 dunums planted with olive trees.
Meanwhile, IOF soldiers at dawn Monday kidnapped four citizens in Attil village, north of Tulkarem after a large-scale search campaign in the village homes.
Other IOF units stormed the city of Tulkarem and the village of Allar but no arrests were reported.
IOF troops also raided the city of Qalqilia and searched a number of shops while in Nahalin village west of Bethlehem soldiers destroyed a civilian car and broke into and ransacked many houses.

Ultra-Orthodox Vigilantes Spread Fear in Jerusalem

'Shaking as she recalled her brutal beating at the hands of Jewish ultra-Orthodox vigilantes, a 28-year-old Jerusalem woman who would only identify herself as M. said she feared for her life.
Some residents say the self-styled "modesty squads" are spreading terror among those seen as straying from the strict moral code demanded of the ultra-Orthodox in the more conservative neighbourhoods of the Holy City.
There life revolves largely around the study of holy texts and a strict dress code that has men sporting black coats and wide-brimmed hats and women covering their heads, arms and legs.
Two weeks ago police arrested two alleged members of a modesty patrol accused of brutally beating M.
The gang allegedly gagged her, hit her, kicked her and said she would be killed if she did not move out of the ultra-Orthodox Maalot Dafna neighbourhood.'

Taxis Get CCTV Cameras

TAXI drivers have welcomed proposals to improve passenger and driver safety, including tougher driver testing and compulsory installation of CCTV.
Changes to the licensing of cabs operating in Gravesham were recommended for approval at a Gravesham Borough Council Cabinet meeting on Monday with a final decision expected in January next year.
If the initiative is approved, Gravesham will be the first borough in the country to introduce compulsory CCTV into its taxis.
The idea was first discussed after 71-year-old taxi driver Gian Chand Bajar, of Darnley Road, Gravesend, was murdered by passenger Luke Aujila, of no fixed abode, in May 2007, by running him over in his own cab. He was sentenced to life in prison in May this year.
Rick Davis, 54, the current joint secretary of the United Taxi Group which represents all taxi drivers in Gravesham, said: “I think as a whole, taxi drivers in the borough will welcome the changes that could be made.
“There will obviously be some who have problems with certain aspects, but I think if it improves the safety of both the drivers and the passengers, then you have to support it.”
Other changes could include the introduction of a penalty points system for drivers breaking the rules, a revision of driver application procedures, enhanced testing which will question candidates on the knowledge of the area and specific landmarks, and drivers will also have to have knowledge of Hackney Carriage and Private Hire law.
Mr Davis had his CCTV fitted last Thursday, at a discounted cost. Currently all drivers will have the opportunity to have CCTV fitted for £97, with funding being provided by Gravesham Borough Council and an EU grant.

Use Cattle Prod On Unemployed, Says Australian Politician

An Australian politician has used his first speech to parliament to call for unemployed idlers to be stung with a cattle prod to get them to work.

John Williams, a former truck driver, shearer, farmer and small business owner who only took his place in the Senate on July 1, said he had seen many people living on employment benefits who were "determined not to work".

"They are simply getting a free ride on behalf of tax payers of Australia and it is about time they received a touch on the backside with a cattle prodder to get them off their butts and actually do some work," he said.

Online Rumours Must Be Controlled

The world Wide Web must be controlled to stop malicious rumours and conspiracy theories being passed off as facts states the internet creator.

He said that a new system needed to be put in place that would differentiate between reliable websites that use trusted sources and those that do not.
"On the web, the thinking of cults can spread very rapidly and suddenly a cult which was 12 people who had some deep personal issues suddenly find a formula which is very believable," he told the BBC.
"A sort of conspiracy theory of sorts and which you can imagine spreading to thousands of people and being deeply damaging."
He said that he was especially concerned by the way the web had been used to stoke fears that the switching on of the Large Hadron Collider would destroy the earth, and to spread rumours that the combined MMR vaccine was causing harm to children.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee is backing a new project, the World Wide Web Foundation, which aims to accelerate the progress of the internet and make it more easily available and accessible in developing nations.

Drivers could have speed limited by satellite devices

Drivers could have their speed controlled by satellite to stop them from breaking the limit following a Government trial of new technology.
Cars fitted with the system would have their speed automatically monitored by satellites, which would also be programmed with the speed limits for different roads.
A motorist who tried to accelerate beyond the speed limit would find the system stopping the car from going any faster or issuing a warning instructing them to slow down.
The Department for Transport is set to back the system known as Intelligent Speed Adaptation. It follows lengthy trials conducted in Leeds in where cars have been fitted with the sophisticated satellite navigation system.
The Department for Transport said that the installation of the technology would be voluntary, but it is already in talks with the motor industry over how it could be made available for those who wanted to buy it.

Wake up!

The monarchs of money have been exposed as arrogant fools. Now we are all paying the price for their hubris

For decades, we have worshipped at the shrine of gold. Prime ministers and presidents have bowed before its keepers. The monarchs of cash, arbiters of wealth, supposed founts of all wisdom, have bestridden Europe and the United States, humbling all in their path.
Investment bankers, hedge fund managers, private equity bosses have strutted in their huge townhouses, tossed away thousands at charity auctions, held court at polo matches and racecourses, launched fleets of yachts and squadrons of Lear jets in a fashion which many of history's dictators would have envied.
Today, we awaken to discover that like so many wizards of Oz, these supremely confident figures are in reality foolish old men - and some young ones - mouthing hollow incantations from behind curtains.
Their universe is crumbling. They rule from the summits of glass towers, but now many can scarcely afford the rents. Markets are tumbling, currencies trembling, great companies begging for lifelines.
The money men have made fools of us. In the years of their dominance, they insisted that the markets were the highest judges and must be left free to rule. Now that the markets signal their downfall, they are running sobbing to governments and taxpayers, begging for our money to save them from the poorhouse.

College bans 'Christmas' and 'Easter' from calendar for fear of offending ethnic students

A college has renamed the traditional Christmas and Easter breaks in a bid to avoid offending students from other religions.
The college's new calendar shows that both of the traditional holiday periods have now been re-branded as 'end of term breaks'.
Critics have complained that the decision by Yorkshire Coast College is nothing more than 'political correctness'.
Tory MP Robert Goodwill said: 'I have heard that some people refer to the Christmas period as the Winterval, which is worse. This is absolutely barmy.

Teach Gay Sex To Children As Young As 5 Says Researchers

Children as young as five should be taught to understand the pleasures of gay sex, according to leaders of a taxpayer-funded education project.
Heads of the project have set themselves a goal of 'creating primary classrooms where queer sexualities are affirmed and celebrated'.
The ambition was revealed in documents prepared for the No Outsiders project run by researchers from universities and backed with £600,000 of public money provided by the Economic and Social Research Council.

Motorists still being ripped off as oil prices fall, but petrol stays high

Frustrated motorists are failing to see the benefit of slumping oil prices as crude yesterday dropped below $100 a barrel, the AA has warned.
The AA said drivers were being short-changed by up to 6p a litre as oil giants fail to pass on the benefits of tumbling crude prices.
It said that even allowing for a six week lag between oil prices and pump prices, motorists still appeared to be being 'ripped off' and that oil companies were 'dragging their feet.

Patriots Must Reject the Two-Party System

The illusion is a shield, a curtain to hide the preparations being made off-stage from the spectators, to seal the fate of mankind. The stage hands know that one day the curtain will be lifted on their epic tragedy, revealing all that is now hidden. Our task is to expose the men behind the curtain before they can stage their final act.
It is time for Americans to grow-up and learn to think for themselves. All our lives we have had it so easy, with the ever-growing “nanny state” keeping us safe from the big bad world, making our decisions for us. This is the year of change. Nothing will ever be the same after this next election.
This is not saying that either of these two candidates will make a difference on anything important, it is simply a hard fact that “the powers that be” have decided that November 4, 2008 is to be a pivotal day in human history. After that day, the tyrants’ hands will be loosed from all restraining considerations, no political force will be able to deter the internationalists’ conspiracy from completing the global empire. The American people must be made to face this fact now, before the day of reckoning arrives.
With the passing of that fateful day, the “dogs of war” will truly be unleashed upon the innocent unprepared world. After the great game is decided, about whether our Nation shall be dominated by Republicans or “Republicans-lite” the real “shock and awe” will get underway. The outcome of this election will not change one thing, for Obama, like Clinton before him, is just another Republican “wannabe.” (Ask yourself: If Bush Sr. would have bombed more people than did Clinton, had he been elected?) Whoever wins in November, we will experience the national pain of a renewed draft, to feed our new war with another of Israel’s mortal enemies (probably all of Israel’s enemies at once

Mickey Mouse must die, says Saudi Arabian cleric

Sheikh Muhammad Munajid claimed the mouse is "one of Satan's soldiers" and makes everything it touches impure.
But he warned that depictions of the creature in cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, and Disney's Mickey Mouse, had taught children that it was in fact loveable.
The cleric, a former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington DC, said that under Sharia, both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed.
Mr Munajid was asked to give Islam's teaching on mice during a religious affairs programme broadcast on al-Majd TV, an Arab television network.
According to a translation prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an American press monitoring service, he said: "The mouse is one of Satan's soldiers and is steered by him.

Is The Illuminati Provoking Economic Collapse


We may be on the verge of a stock market crash reminiscent of 1929.

I was watching a special CNBC program on the financial crisis when the news came across that Moody's had downgraded the Insurance giant AIG (American International Group.) This company was already on the ropes Monday when its stock crumbled to $4.75 from $11, %60 in one day. It was down from a $70 52-week-high. The company had gone to the Fed for a bailout. It was estimated it needed $40 billion.

Because of the Moody's downgrade, it emerges that it will need alot more money to avert bankruptcy. This is a massive company that holds the pensions of millions of employees. A money manager estimated that a trillion dollars would be lost if AIG declares bankruptcy. The whole world financial system could be taken down. He said banks in the Far East were already acting like this is inevitable, and the collapse already has been set in motion.

As you can imagine, the CNBC commentators were frantic. One demanded to know how the Fed can allow this to happen. "We know they print money," he said. Another wondered if the States whose pension funds were held by AIG could organize a bailout. Not enough time, he was told.

The bottom line is that Tuesday and the rest of this week could be ugly so be prepared. The second bottom line is that this Depression like the last appears to be caused by a deliberate contraction of credit. House prices are falling because banks don't have the money to lend to house buyers. As a result, portfolios holding mortgage backed securities are tumbling, taking banks with them. The Fed, after bailing out Fannie May and Fredie Mack, have let Lehman Brothers fail. AIG appears to be next and the dominoes will continue to fall.

At this time, it is important to remember that an Illuminati defector known as "Svali" said she was taught that the "end of the world" scenario involved an economic collapse. Remember the Illuminati is a Masonic cult founded and funded by the central bankers who own the Fed. Here is her full testimony given about ten year ago.

Obama: Bush's Pakistan Incursions, Small Step


US Presidential hopeful Barrack Obama has termed the cross-border raids by the US forces into Pakistan as a small step in the right direction. Obama supported the raids but described them as "baby steps" by the Bush's administration. "The Bush administration has come to that point of view. That's the kind of policy we have to pursue and continue ...This is a baby step, but it's a baby step in the right direction and something that John McCain hasn't been willing to acknowledge," Susan Rice, the top foreign policy adviser to Senator Obama, said. "President Bush and the administration, indeed, are doing what Senator Obama said we must, well over a year ago. If we have actionable intelligence about a high-value terrorist target inside Pakistan and Pakistan is unwilling or unable to take that target out, such as Osama bin Laden, Senator Obama's view is we should act," she added.




Once more the Hypocracy of both the Bush administration and Obama knows no bounds. They squeal like stuck pigs when Russia went to its citizens aid in Georgia and only las wek Arch neocon Cheney was bombasting russia about how civilized countries must have respect for another countries territorial integrity. This goes to show that no matter who you get in power in the US, things will never CHANGE unless you the people DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

MASTERS OF UNIVERSE FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY

'By the power of Greyskull, I'm overexposed in sub-prime securities!'
THE masters of the universe were last night forced to relinquish control of their infinite creation and put all their personal items in a cardboard box.
The gigantic, all-powerful superbeings, to whom you are mere pawns on a chess board, handed their ID badges to security along with the little card that operates the snack machine on the second floor.
After a final day of juggling planets like tangerines, the invincible emperors of finance stole as many staplers as they could carry before getting the bus home.
Todd Logan, a master of the universe since 1997, said: "Do I get to keep my cell phone? You want that back too? Okay, can I at least keep the simcard so I don't have to change numbers?"
Logan said any universe that allowed a colossus like himself to sit around in his underpants all day eating cheese products and watching Crime Scene: Navy Crime did not deserve to exist.
"Since when does the free market apply to banks? I thought it was just for sandwich shops and major international airlines."Now I'll have to go to the store and buy tinned food and cleaning products.
Who is going to moisturise my elbows? Who is going to sponge my ass?"
He added: "Avert your gaze mortals. I am your GOD!"

FEMA - Executive Orders


Some people have referred to it as the "secret government" of the United States. It is not an elected body, it does not involve itself in public disclosures, and it even has a quasi-secret budget in the billions of dollars. This government organization has more power than the President of the United States or the Congress, it has the power to suspend laws, move entire populations, arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and hold them without trial, it can seize property, food supplies, transportation systems, and can suspend the Constitution. Not only is it the most powerful entity in the United States, but it was not even created under Constitutional law by the Congress. It was a product of a Presidential Executive Order. No, it is not the U.S. military nor the Central Intelligence Agency, they are subject to Congress. The organization is called FEMA, which stands for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Originally conceived in the Richard Nixon Administration, it was refined by President Jimmy Carter and given teeth in the Ronald Reagan and George Bush Administrations.
FEMA had one original concept when it was created, to assure the survivability of the United States government in the event of a nuclear attack on this nation. It was also provided with the task of being a federal coordinating body during times of domestic disasters, such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes. Its awesome powers grow under the tutelage of people like Lt. Col. Oliver North and General Richard Secord, the architects on the Iran-Contra scandal and the looting of America's savings and loan institutions. FEMA has even been given control of the State Defense Forces, a rag-tag, often considered neo-Nazi, civilian army that will substitute for the National Guard, if the Guard is called to duty overseas.

The Israelization Of US Foreign Policy


THE ISRAELI ‘6 DAY WAR’ of 1967 drove the leaders of Israel to look for a new partner. This was because President De Gaulle suspended all arms shipments to Israel because Israel initiated the 6 Day War against French advice.
In November of 1967, De Gaulle had some choice words about the Jews who had spurned his counsel - and a warning to the world:
“The establishment of a Zionist homeland in Palestine has raised certain fears. The question must be asked whether the settlement of this community on a land acquired under more or less justifiable conditions would not lead to continued conflicts.
Some people even feared that the Jews, an elite people, sure of themselves and domineering, would, once assembled again on the land of their ancient greatness, turn their Zionist pursuit into a burning and conquering ambition.
Since 1956, we have witnessed a warrior State of Israel that is determined to increase its boundaries. Israel has reached further objectives in only six days of fighting. Now Israel organizes itself on conquered territories, the occupation of which cannot go without oppression and expulsions”

Islamic Sharia Courts In Britain Are Now 'Legally Binding'

Islamic sharia law courts in Britain are exploiting a little-known legal clause to make their verdicts officially binding under UK law in cases including divorce, financial disputes and even domestic violence.
A new network of courts in five major cities is hearing cases where Muslims involved agree to be bound by traditional Sharia law, and under the 1996 Arbitration Act the court's decisions can then be enforced by the county courts or the High Court.
Officials behind the new system claim to have dealt with more than 100 cases since last summer, including six involving domestic violence which is a criminal rather than civil offence, and said they hoped to take over growing numbers of 'smaller' criminal cases in future.

12 Year Old Arrested In Ni’lin Brought Before Military Court

On Sunday 14th September, Mohammad Saleh Khawaje, aged 12 years and two months, from the village of Ni’lin will spend a fourth night in Ofer prison near Ramallah, as he awaits release on bail for the charges of stone-throwing and disturbance of public order. His co-defendant, 13 year old Abdul Ahman is not so lucky; he will be kept in jail until his indictment on Tuesday 16th September, when military prosecutors will request that the judge refuse bail, forcing the child to remain incarcerated for the period of his trial - a process that takes up to six months. The difference in their treatment, according to their lawyer, is based on the slight age difference. If convicted, however, both children face approximately ten to twelve months in jail, advised their lawyer.A clear indication of the apartheid nature of the Israeli legal system, Mohammad and Abdul will be tried and punished as adults, despite their young ages because Palestinian children are defined as adults at 12 years old; while Israeli children are treated as such until they reach 18 years of age.

Cheney Scales New Heights of Hypocrisy

While Alaska Governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin is getting all the attention, the current vice president, Dick Cheney, was able to pontificate about Russia and Georgia with barely any notice from the media. However, while hardly anyone was watching, Mr. Cheney echoed the hypocrisy of his boss, President George Bush. While traveling in Italy, Mr. Cheney decided to become the moral arbiter of Russia’s foreign policies. His incredible remarks are worth studying.“Recent occurrences in Georgia, beginning with the military invasion by Russia, have been flatly contrary to some of our most deeply held beliefs. Russian forces crossed an internationally recognized border into a sovereign state; fueled and fomented an internal conflict; conducted acts of war without regard for innocent life, killing civilians and causing the displacement of tens of thousands.”If anyone doubted the vice president’s disdain for those who elected him and kept him in power, this speech should have been an eye-opener. How he could make that statement with a straight face is beyond comprehension. Was he not a major force in the U.S. military invasion of Iraq? Mr. Bush may not have needed much encouragement to embark on this deadly oil grab, but whatever encouragement he may have needed was gladly provided by the vice president.

UK Is Full Of Tin Pot Town Hall Dictators

Labour is creating an army of tinpot town hall dictators with Big Brother-style powers to impose “petty” laws on the public, it was claimed last night.
The Government is handing authority to local councils to create rules on everything from where wheelie bins are left to where food is eaten in public places.It could mean a ban on feeding the ducks to fines for those who cycle through a park or walk on the grass. Parents of youngsters who ignore a by-law forbidding football in a residential road could face a cash penalty, while dog lovers who let their pooches play off the lead could also pay a high price.Residents were warned to expect fines of up to £80 if they breach the regulations as cash-strapped councils turn the simplest of pastimes into a cash-cow for their dwindling coffers.

The US Top Secret In Iraq And The Israeli Connection


Bob Woodward’s newest book "the War within" which he reveals in it how the Bush administration has administrated the war in Iraq and in it he talks about a US secret program to counter the Iraqi insrugency. Woodward told CNN’s Larry king, earlier this week, that he has obtained secret information on the workings of US military in Iraq that enabled the US forces to stem the tide of violence and al-Qaeda terrorism in Iraq.Though it looks like it is a super secret as to what kind of program the US forces had developed to counter the military-style attacks in Iraq against its forces, but this supposed super secret is not quite that big of a secret after all.It was reported in the US and British press as far back as 2003 that the US forces is using the Israeli Army tactics and Israeli advisers for training and consultations to counter the insurgency in Iraq.

Stocks and the U.S. dollar tumbled on Monday as Lehman Brothers was expected to file for bankruptcy, leading to grave uncertainties about other banks and shaken confidence in the financial system, and sending safe-haven Treasury debt and gold prices soaring.
U.S. stock market futures were down more than 3 percent, pointing to sharply lower open, while major European markets were set for falls of between 2 and 3.2 percent, according to one financial spread-betting firm.

Anger As Car Journey Data Stored

Civil liberties campaigners have expressed alarm that millions of car journeys are to be stored on a national database for five years.
Already some 10 million journeys a day are being recorded using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), but this is set to rise to 50 million.
It will be collated at a new National ANPR Data Centre in Hendon, north London, for use by police.
While the original period for which the data was planned to be held was two years, the Home Office has confirmed that it was now being kept for five years.
The disclosure came after a freedom of information request by The Guardian.
The paper has also obtained an Acpo ANPR strategy document advising officers to "fully and strategically exploit" the data gathered.

Big Brother In The "Big Apple": Encircling Manhattan With Thousands Of Surveillance Cameras

The Lower Manhattan Security Initiative (LMSI) and a related program, Operation Sentinel, are modeled after London's so-called "Ring of Steel." In London, roads entering the city are narrowed and have tight serpentine curves that force drivers to slow down and be recorded by CCTV cameras. Typically, such roads have concrete or reinforced plastic medians with a sentry box where police stand guard and monitor traffic flows. Following the July 7, 2005 terrorist attacks in London, security has been stepped up, with occasional spot checks by machine-gun toting police of cars and trucks entering the security cordon.
As it now stands, LMSI would link a matrix of 3,000 public and private surveillance cameras for monitoring and tracking vehicles and pedestrians south of Canal Street, the city's financial hub. Other features of the system include mobile roadblocks that could swivel into place and block off any given street to traffic.

Freedom Not Fear - Worldwide Protest Against The Surveillance State



Surveillance mania is spreading. Governments and businesses register, monitor and control our behaviour ever more thoroughly. No matter what we do, who we phone and talk to, where we go, whom we are friends with, what our interests are, which groups we participate in - "big brother" government and "little brothers" in business know it more and more thoroughly. The resulting lack of privacy and confidentiality is putting at risk the freedom of confession, the freedom of speech as well as the work of doctors, helplines, lawyers and journalists.


The manifold agenda of security sector reform encompasses the convergence of police, intelligence agencies and the military, threatening to melt down the division and balance of powers. Using methods of mass surveillance, the borderless cooperation of the military, intelligence services and police authorities is leading towards the construction of "Fortresses" in Europe and on other continents, directed against refugees and different-looking people but also affecting, for example, political activists, the poor and under-priviledged, and sports fans.
People who constantly feel watched and under surveillance cannot freely and courageously stand up for their rights and for a just society. Mass surveillance is thereby threatening the fabric of a democratic and open society. Mass surveillance is also endangering the work and commitment of civil society organizations.


Surveillance, distrust and fear are gradually transforming our society into one of uncritical consumers who have "nothing to hide" and - in a vain attempt to achieve total security - are prepared to give up their freedoms. We do not want to live in such a society!


We believe the respect for our privacy to be an important part of our human dignity. A free and open society cannot exist without unconditionally private spaces and communications.
The increasing electronic registration and surveillance of the entire population does not make us any safer from crime, costs millions of Euros and puts the privacy of innocent citizens at risk. Under the reign of fear and blind actionism, targeted and sustained security measures fall by the wayside, as well as tackling peoples' actual daily problems such as unemployment and poverty.
In order to protest against security mania and excessive surveillance we will take to the streets in capital cities in many countries on 11 October 2008. We call on everybody to join our peaceful protest. Politicians are to see that we are willing to take to the streets for the protection of our liberties!

Our Obsession With Crime Is Crushing Our Freedoms

The story of Milly, an eight-year-old cat who disappeared out of window in Whitstable two weeks ago, has much to tell us about the petty-minded forces that have come to replace proper policing in this country. Her owners, Stephen and Heather Cope and their son Daniel, 13, searched high and low for Milly, then, failing to find her, did what any normal person would do: put up posters to see if anyone had seen her. The next thing they heard was from one of the local council community wardens, who rang the telephone number on the poster and threatened them with a £80 on-the-spot fine for antisocial behaviour.
Seldom can there have been a more officious, twerpish enforcement of the law, but this kind of action is now one of the established parts of this dreadful government's legacy. As the police retreat from the streets, we are prey to every type of snoop, informant, busybody and vindictive martinet, all of them licensed by the government's accreditation scheme so that they may demand our names and addresses, photograph us, check car tax discs and seize alcohol, issue fines for truancy, rowdiness, graffiti and dog fouling.
In Colchester, litter wardens are taking pictures of alleged offenders to publish them in the local paper. One local council has been reported as using officials to check car numbers outside homes to see who is sleeping with whom, for God knows what purpose. Children as young as eight are among 5,000 private citizens across the country recruited as paid 'covert human intelligences sources'.
