Dire Warning: UK Interest Rates to Rocket

INTEREST rates will rocket as the Bank of England battles to keep inflation under control, its chief economist warned yesterday.

Spencer Dale told insurers the Bank would remain focused on inflation, regardless of the pain that would cause millions of home owners as their mortgage payments soared.

Mr Dale, a member of the Bank’s ­Monetary Policy Committee, which sets interest rates, said: “The committee adjusted monetary policy boldly and ­decisively on the way down in order to meet the inflation target. And let me assure you that, when the time comes, we will be prepared to respond with equal vigour on the way back up.”

Is There Any Gold Left in Fort Knox?


It is said to be the most impregnable vault on Earth: built out of granite, sealed behind a 22-tonne door, located on a US military base and watched over day and night by army units with tanks, heavy artillery and Apache helicopter gunships at their disposal.

Since its construction in 1937 the treasures locked inside Fort Knox have included the US Declaration of Independence, the Gettysburg Address, three volumes of the Gutenberg Bible and Magna Carta.

For several prominent investors and at least one senior US congressman it is not the security of the facility in Kentucky that is a cause of concern: it is the matter of how much gold remains stored there - and who owns it.

4 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST Emergency
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk). Editor's Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!'

THIRD Hidden Battery Power
Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

FOURTH How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.


ATM - PIN Number Reversal - Good to Know
If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse. For example, if your pin number is 1234, then you would put in 4321. The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to the location. This information was recently broadcast on CTV by Crime Stoppers however it is seldom used because people just don't know about it. Please pass this along to everyone.

DNA Scan Could Cut Your Insurance Premiums

Taking genetic tests to assess potential health risks could mean cheaper medical insurance even if the results are not disclosed, a senior industry executive has told The Times.
Customers who take personal DNA scans will pay lower premiums because insurers believe that they encourage a healthier lifestyle, according to Gil Baldwin, the managing director of Norwich Union Healthcare.

The advent of tests for DNA variants that affect common disorders such as diabetes and heart disease has prompted fears of discrimination and the creation of a “genetic underclass” who cannot buy cover.

Mr Baldwin insisted that his company did not see genetics as a tool for cherry picking low-risk customers but as a way of helping them to manage and reduce their risk of disease with the aim of lowering costs for both parties.

The Free Market, Financial Style - How the Scam Works

Newspaper reports seem surprised at how high banks are bidding for the junk mortgages that Treasury Secretary Geithner is now bidding for, having mobilized the FDIC and Fed to transfer yet more public funds to the banks. Bank stocks are soaring – thereby bidding up the Dow Jones Industrial Average, as if the “financial industry” really were part of the industrial economy.

Here’s the rip-off as I see it. For an outlay of $750,000, the bank rids its books of a mortgage worth $2 million, for which it receives $4,250,000. It gets twice as much as the junk is worth.

Students and parents are outraged. They said the new policy means no high-fives and hugs, as well as horseplay of any kind. The consequences could be dire, Williams warned in the letter.

CFR on Planetary Geoengineering

I don’t think anyone has the complete story on exactly what chemtrails are. I don’t doubt that weather modification is a part of it, but take your pick on the rest. There’s almost certainly a biological component to some of the spraying. There could also be some kind of scalar weapon application involving HAARP.

My guess is that the CFR came out with the relatively innocuous sounding weather modification stuff in order to take some of the focus away from the other questions. Even so, I find it extraordinary to see these words in a CFR document.

Obama's Latest No Banker Left Behind Scheme

On Wall Street, that is.

Mainstream Media Bailout Bill Introduced

The “Newspaper Revitalization Act” was introduced this week by Senator Benjamin Cardin, a Democrat from Maryland.

“We are losing our newspaper industry the economy has caused an immediate problem, but the business model for newspapers, based on circulation and advertising revenue, is broken, and that is a real tragedy for communities across the nation and for our democracy. It is in the interest of our nation and good governance that we ensure they survive” said Senator Cardin.

The act would grant newspapers tax-free status as non-profits, a deal similar to that enjoyed by public broadcasting outlets, which survive on tax-deductible contributions from listeners. The newspapers, however, will also be able to enjoy tax free advertising revenue.

Is it really in the interest of our nation to bailout the newspapers?

California May Ban Black Cars


The California legislature is considering regulating the color of cars and reflectivity of paint to reduce the energy requirements to cool them. A presentation on the proposed legislation by the California Air Resources Board is below.
The problem isn't the color per se, but the reflectivity of the paint overall. And dark colors just don't reflect well, so they are likely out. "Jet black remains an issue," says the report.

Taking Back the USA


I have a vision, as Martin Luther King once said. A vision of racial and economic equality, equal opportunity and civil rights for people of all colors. The question is how do I, we, go about realizing this vision?
Dr. King conceived of passive resistance, non-violent protests, to bring vast numbers of people, black and white into the street, to the schools and lunch counters, the bus stops and the Washington Mall to show their strength and insistence on their principles. I envision a similar formula.

But let me make clear what I am protesting. First and foremost, it is globalization, which is destroying labor, its unions, and consequently the working and middle classes of the United States. In this process, it has dismantled the manufacturing infrastructure and reduced us at best to a service economy. Millions of jobs, blue and white collar, we know have been “outsourced,” given away to the lowest bidders along with the hard-won benefits of US workers, including healthcare, pensions and decent working conditions.

Globalization has profited only the multi-national corporations and the rich elite who run or invest in them. The multi-national corporation sits on the backs of working people around the world, people who have been pitted against each other, and now work for less because they undersold their services to enrich those corporations. These corporations financially divided and conquered world economies.

Israeli Troops 'Enter Gaza Strip'

Palestinian fighters in Gaza say they have wounded several Israeli soldiers southeast of the strip after they violated the shaky ceasefire. Fighters from the Islamic Jihad exchanged fire with 10 Israeli soldiers east of the city of Khan Yunis, the group's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, said on Thursday. There have been no comments from the Israeli army but reports indicate that the fifteen minute shootout wounded five Israeli soldiers.

90 per cent Take-up by Schoolgirls for Vaccination Against Jade Goody Cancer

The cervical cancer programme began in September and is currently being offered to all girls in the second year of secondary school.

It involves three injections over a six-month period and new figures show the take-up rate for the first dose is 92.2 per cent. For the second dose, which is still being administered, the rate is 87.8 per cent.

The immunisation scheme aims to protect girls against types 16 and 18 of the human papillomavirus, which cause 70 per cent of cervical cancers.

Shona Robison, Scottish public health minister, paid tribute to the hard work of health boards and schools for making the scheme a success.

Two-Faced Geithner Assures CFR Puppet Masters He’s “Open” To Global Currency

Treasury Secretary a traitor, tells American people one thing, CFR elitists another, as move towards global monetary union accelerates.

In a near complete reversal of his comments on Tuesday, when he told a Congressional hearing that there were no plans to move towards a global currency to supplant the dollar, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner sought to please the elitist CFR by assuring them that he was “open” to the notion of a new global currency system.

Geithner’s two-faced reversal is another shining example of how much contempt Obama administration front men have for the American people - assuring them one day that the dollar will remain while the next pandering to their globalist puppet masters the CFR as the move towards a global monetary union accelerates.

Netanyahu Plans to Expand Settlements

Israeli prime minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu has struck a secret deal with one of his coalition partners, pledging to expand settlements in a highly-contentious area of the West Bank, army radio said.

The agreement is not included in the official coalition deal between Netanyahu's right-wing Likud and the ultra-nationalist Yisrael Beitenu party of firebrand Avigdor Lieberman but the two men struck the understanding during their coalition talks, the radio said.

According to the plan, some 3,000 housing units are to be constructed in the so-called E1 Sector in the occupied West Bank which runs between annexed east Jerusalem and the Maale Adumim settlement.

The Covert War on UK Teens - And its Aims

The 16th president of the USA, Abraham Lincoln, said once, that a house divided against itself cannot stand. This is true in any era, and in any civilization. It is also true that a blatant dictatorship, such as Britain with its 3 million plus cameras in London alone, cannot stand as long as the people stand together in mutual support of each other. Endless fault lines are artificially created to prevent this outcome. White on Muslim, rich against poor, British against Polish, and now adults against teenagers.

One of the time tested methods of controlling populations is the divide and rule card, most famously advocated by Niccolo Machiavelli in his work, The Prince.

Psychiatry Still Uses Electroshock Therapy on Children

A recent article published in the Melbourne, Australia paper Herald Sun has drawn attention to the ongoing psychiatric practice of using electroshock therapy on children as young as four years of age.

Electroshock therapy, also known as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), is the practice of applying electric shocks to the brain in order to induce seizures and modify behavior by damaging "problematic" portions of the brain."

After a few sessions of ECT, the symptoms are those of moderate cerebral contusions," said neurologist Sidney Sament. "The patient 'forgets' his symptoms because the brain damage destroys memory traces in the brain, and the patient has to pay for this by a reduction in mental capacity of varying degree."

'We're All in This Together' - No We are Not, That's the Point

President Obama basically said that we can't demonize every investor who earns a profit, because "we are all in this together."

Sorry, but I am going to have to call a big fat "bull-shit" on this one.

When Obama said "we" did he have a mouse in his pocket? Obama, and his family have a very opulent, slave-built roof over their heads. He travels on the public nickel, his children attend an exclusive Washington, DC private school that has organic food on its menu, and has health care that covers everyone in his family from head to toe and side to side and inside out.

Even though he and every member of the administration, Congress and the Supreme Court are not hurting for anything, the bastard (sorry if your parents weren't married when you were conceived) Wall Street banksters are receiving billions of dollars of government welfare and are not so good about being in "this together" with us.

The only concrete steps the Treasury and Fed have taken are to buy "toxic" assets (if something is toxic can it still be an asset?) so companies like Goldman Sachs (via AIG) can have the public tit rescue them from their stupider than crap mistakes.

Israel Accused of Air Strike on Sudan Convoy

CBS News reports claims by US officials that Israeli aircraft attacked a 17-truck convoy, believing it to be carrying Iranian weapons supplies bound for Hamas in Gaza.
Some 39 people are said to have died during the raid, which allegedly happened in January during the war in Gaza.
It sounds far-fetched - an Israeli air strike on a hostile country 900 miles from home and one that remains a secret for two months.
The story seems to have first surfaced on a Sudanese website this week.
A Sudanese government minister then accused the US of carrying out the strike.
However, CBS claims that version of events has been contradicted in briefings by American government officials who have fingered the Israelis as being responsible.

GM Ingredients Detected in Organic 'GM Free' Foods

Professor Mark Partridge and Professor Denis Murphy, from the biotechnology unit at the University of Glamorgan in Wales tested 25 products containing soya using an EU approved method for detecting traces of GM ingredients.

They found that 10 of the 25 samples tested positive for traces of GM ingredients, even though eight of the positive samples had been labelled 'GM free' or 'organic'. Four of the products that showed traces of GM were above the UK Soil Association's limit for organic food, including one vegetarian sausage mix which contained 0.7 per cent GM soya.

'Israel Treated its Soldiers as Guinea Pigs'

Israel has admitted to developing an anthrax vaccine through a secret research project involving tests on unaware army soldiers.

The Israeli Defense Ministry revealed on Wednesday that the vaccine was tested on 716 soldiers while they had not been fully informed about the study, Ynet reported.

The project, codenamed "Omer 2", was held during the first part of the 1990s and the subjects were picked out of a pool of 4,000.

Some of the soldiers, who say that the experiment has had life-threatening side effects for them, are now filing a lawsuit against the Israeli Army, Haaretz reported.

Welcome to the ugly underside of the zero-tolerance era, where insignificant rule violations get inflated into criminal infractions.

Oh Goody- Obama Attempts to Appoint Another Goldman Sachs Executive

Click to enlarge
I reported back in February on the case of Gary Gensler, the former Goldman Sachs employee and derivatives cheerleader who President Obama nominated to head the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Gensler’s nomination sailed through the Senate Agricultural Committee but Senator Bernie Sanders has placed a hold on the nomination (as has a second senator who is as yet unnamed).
A statement from Sanders’s office said:
While Mr. Gensler is clearly an intelligent and knowledgeable person, I cannot support his nomination. Mr. Gensler worked with Sen. Phil Gramm and Alan Greenspan to exempt credit default swaps from regulation, which led to the collapse of A.I.G. and has resulted in the largest taxpayer bailout in U.S. history. He supported Gramm-Leach-Bliley, which allowed banks like Citigroup to become “too big to fail.” He worked to deregulate electronic energy trading, which led to the downfall of Enron and the spike in energy prices. At this moment in our history, we need an independent leader who will help create a new culture in the financial marketplace and move us away from the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior which has caused so much harm to our economy.

George Soros: I'm Having a Very Good Crisis

A hedge fund manager who predicted the global credit crunch has said the financial crisis has been 'stimulating' and the culmination of his life's work.

George Soros, who predicted the global financial crisis twice before, was one of the few people to anticipate and prepare for the current economic collapse.

Mr Soros said his prediction meant he was better able to brace his Quantum investment fund against the gloabal storm.

But other investors failed to take notice of his prediction and his decision to come out of retirement in 2007 to manage the fund made him $US2.9 billion.

And while the financial crisis continued to deepen across the globe, the 78-year-old still managed to make $1.1 billion last year.

Cold Fusion Proven True by U.S. Navy Researchers - Will Suppression of this Science be Repeated?

The world owes Fleischmann and Pons a huge apology: The cold fusion technology they announced in 1989 -- which was blasted by arrogant hot fusion scientists as a fraud -- has been proven true once again by U.S. Navy Researchers. In papers presented at this year's American Chemical Society meeting, scientist Pamela Mosier-Boss presented data supporting the reality of cold fusion, declaring the report, "the first scientific report of highly energetic neutrons from low-energy nuclear reactions."

Technically, it's not the first report at all, however. It might be the five-hundredth report, given how many people have been working on cold fusion since 1989 in laboratories across the world. Following the politically-motivated assassination of cold fusion credibility in 1989, the cold fusion movement went underground, renaming itself to LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions). As LENR, cold fusion has been proven true in literally thousands of experiments conducted over the past two decades.

Obama Youth Brigade: Church Attendance Forbidden


Is this the change you really voted for? President Obama has only been in office for two months. Now we have HR 1388. The Bill was sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) with 37 others. The Bill was introduced to the floor of the House of Representatives where both Republicans and Democrats voted 321-105 in favor. Next it goes to the Senate for a vote and then on to President Obama.

This bill’s title is called “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education” (GIVE). It forms what some are calling “Obama’s Youth Brigade.” Obama’s plan is require anyone receiving school loans and others to serve at least three months as part of the brigade. His goal is one million youth! This has serious Nazi Germany overtones to it.

The Bill would forbid any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.” That means no church attendance or witnessing.
You have got to laugh, one scam ripping of another scam!

Monsanto Planting Seeds in the White House?

Apparently, President Obama is considering appointing Michael Taylor to head the new Food Safety Working Group.

The man has moved in and out of roles at the federal government and Monsanto so many times he probably has whiplash.

So what's the big deal? (I'm not going to opine on Monsanto here, other than to say that I know quite a few people who think Monsanto is the most evil corporation in the world, and that's even after this AIG debacle.) Well, two things:

The first is that I find it puzzling, to put it lightly, that Obama would choose this guy to help ensure food safety.

Despite Obama’s Vow, Combat Brigades Will Stay in Iraq



Despite President Barack Obama’s statement at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina Feb. 27 that he had "chosen a timeline that will remove our combat brigades over the next 18 months," a number of Brigade Combat Teams (BCTs), which have been the basic U.S. Army combat unit in Iraq for six years, will remain in Iraq after that date under a new non-combat label.


A spokesman for Defence Secretary Robert M. Gates, Lt. Col. Patrick S. Ryder, told IPS Tuesday that "several advisory and assistance brigades" would be part of a U.S. command in Iraq that will be "re-designated" as a "transition force headquarters" after August 2010.


But the "advisory and assistance brigades" to remain in Iraq after that date will in fact be the same as BCTs, except for the addition of a few dozen officers who would carry out the advice and assistance missions, according to military officials involved in the planning process.


Gates has hinted that the withdrawal of combat brigades will be accomplished through an administrative sleight of hand rather than by actually withdrawing all the combat brigade teams.


Appearing on Meet the Press Mar. 1, Gates said the "transition force" would have "a very different kind of mission", and that the units remaining in Iraq "will be characterised differently". "They will be called advisory and assistance brigades," said Gates. "They won't be called combat brigades."

AIG is Chump Change -- Let's Find Corporate America's Hidden Billions

The popular urge to claw back the bogus bonuses paid by American International Group is irresistible and fully justified, but should the Treasury someday retrieve every single bonus dollar, that total of $165 million will make no difference to anyone except a few disgruntled traders. From the jaded perspective of the financiers, the uproar over the AIG bonuses may provide a welcome distraction from far more important (and lucrative) abuses in the world's offshore tax havens.

So rather than continue arguing over chump change, it is long past time for the United States, with its international friends and allies, to demand accountability from the long list of tiny countries and principalities, from Andorra and the Cayman Islands to Singapore and Switzerland, where corporations, wealthy clients and unrepentant evildoers hide their assets.

First, Awaken Your Mind

How is the mind of a newborn child?

It is completely pure. It is awake.

There are no preconceived ideas and there are no misconceptions. Anything and everything is possible, but with all that freedom the mind of a newborn child is susceptible.
At the moment you and I incarnated here on earth we opened ourselves to whatever form of reality our new world wanted to thrust upon us - perhaps ‘thrust upon’ is too strong a phrase, but it suits our current reality - and we were always, as natural beings assuming a ‘natural’ world, going to accept that version of reality as being ‘real’.

Ed Miliband the Windfarm Windbag

His comments - made at the screening of a new film warning of the effects of climate change - came as environmentalists said the massive expansion of onshore wind farms was threatening some of Britain's best-loved countryside.

Fear: The Last Refuge of Desperate Politicians


My train pulled into Waterloo station yesterday to be greeted by an alarming poster picturing women and children in a market. It warned: “A bomb didn't go off here because weeks before a shopper reported someone studying the CCTV cameras.” It wasn't what I needed to worry about on my way to work.

It is part of a new campaign - “Don't rely on others” - urging the public to report suspicious activity that could be related to terrorism: from large amounts of empty chemical bottles in a bin, to a suspicious van rental or somebody who owns lots of mobile phones. Being scary, dramatic and backed by the police, it's the sort of campaign that wins easy headlines and thus acts as a form of subliminal advertising.

The Senate last night rubber stamped a nightmare domestic draft bill that legislates mandatory national service and creates an “army” of at least 7 million civilian enforcers working at the the behest of the government, while also containing language that threatens to ban free speech and the right to protest.

Israel's Lunatic Fringe Rejects Obama's Plans

Members of an Israeli right-wing faction have expressed their opposition to US President Barack Obama's support for a two-state solution. Over 1,800 members of the Unity Coalition for Israel (UCI) have sent emails to President Obama and other members of his staff, questioning "the wisdom" of the new US administration.'

The CIA and the Labour Party

SECRET US funding of "voluntary" organisations began with the Marshall Plan. In June 1947 George Marshall, US Secretary of State, in a speech at Harvard, suggested that the European nations, including the USSR, should agree a joint programme of reconstruction to which the US would contribute. Within three months 16 European nations had formulated a European Recovery Programme (ERP) for the period 1947-51.

ERP was welcomed by President Truman, immediate interim aid was authorised for Austria, France and Italy, and in April 1948 Congress passed the Economic Co-operation Act which set up the Economic Co-operation Administration (ECA*) to administer some 13,000 million dollars of aid to Europe over the period 1948-51. (*ECA administrator for France was Barry Bingham, who helped launch the International Press Institute.)

Satanic Fabian Warmongers


Tony Blair’s conversion to Catholicism is laughable. He and his witch of a wife profess to be Christians, supposedly qualified to comment on the religions future, and yet, have been known to enjoy howling at the moon from time to time.

As is well recognised, Blair is a genocidal war monger. So while much of his work may sit under the general public’s radar these days, it will come as no surprise that he is up to no good in the Middle East.

Having incited Israel’s recent insane attack on Gaza, he is now point man in the continuing drive to get Israel to attack Iran. Yes, that’s right, now that Cheney is gone, and the (at least financially) floundering Obama administration refuses to tow the Armageddonist foreign policy line, it is down to Blair to bring on the Third World War.

Anglers Arrested and DNA Tested by Anti-terror Police for Using Laser Pens to Scare Ducks

Fishing quietly by a lake, Martin Kailus and his middle-aged friends made for an unlikely trio of terrorists. The police, however, begged to differ. To the bemusement of the anglers, ten officers swooped and arrested them under anti-terror laws. They claimed the men were using laser pens to endanger aeroplanes flying overhead.

Bend Over and Say, 'Uncle Sam'


Timothy Geithner refuses to take underwater banks into receivership and resolve them, but has no problem transforming the FDIC into a hedge fund. Go figure? Here's what everyone needs to know: The US government (you) will provide up to 94 percent of the financing (low interest, of course) for dodgy mortgage-backed assets that no one in their right mind would ever buy so that wealthy and politically-connected banksters can scrub up to $1 trillion of red ink from their balance sheets.

FDA One Step Away From Declaring Dietary Supplements Drugs

President Barack Obama has appointed two experts, one in food the other in drugs, to head up the soon to be reorganized Food & Drug Administration in preparation for an agency split that would separate the FDA into two – one agency to oversee foods and the other to regulate drugs. But just exactly where does that leave dietary supplements?

Obama Doesn’t Talk Like Bush; He Just Acts Like Him


You can’t blame Dick Cheney for being annoyed at Barack Obama. Obama is closing Guantánamo. He’s ordering the CIA to interrogate prisoners according to the rules written in the Army Field Manual, which doesn’t allow torture. He’s even phasing out such classic Bushian phrases as “enemy combatant” and “war on terror.”

But the dark prince of neoconservatism should relax. Obama’s inaugural address may have promised to “reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals,” but — in all the ways that matter — he’s keeping all of Bush’s outrageous policies in place. Sure, he talks a good game about “moving forward.” But nothing has really changed. From reading your e-mails to asserting the right to assassinate American citizens to bailing out companies whose executives pay themselves big bonuses, Obama’s changes are nothing but toothless rhetoric.

UN: Israel Broke Six-month Truce in Gaza

A new UN report exposes a bit of misinformation peddled by the US and Israel and shatters the Zionist illusion that the Gaza war was legal.

The report, prepared by human rights investigator Richard Falk, confirms that Tel Aviv was indeed the party that violated the Egyptian-brokered six-month truce in Gaza.

Israel and the democratically elected Palestinian government confined to the Gaza Strip agreed in mid June 2008 to a six-month truce. While reports indicated that Tel Aviv had initially broken the truce with its tanks and bulldozers crossing the southern border of the Gaza Strip on November 4 and 5, echelons in the United States and Israel insisted otherwise.

A widespread campaign in support of the alleged Israeli right to enter the Palestinian territory was then launched by US and Israeli media outlets.

Be Gentle With the Bankers - No, Indict Them for High Treason


Simon Johnson, in an article posted on the RGE Monitor site, notes that the “CEOs of major banks have started to push back against the critics” and cites Richard Kovacevich, chair of Wells Fargo. Johnson mentions the “banking industry’s thought leader,” Jamie Dimon, who declares “that unless we stop vilifying corporate leaders… we will not get an economic recovery.”

Sounds like blackmail to me.

Mr. Johnson tells us the banking CEOs and “thinkers” want us to “move on,” in other words forget about holding the culprits (like Vikram Pandit at Citi) responsible or for that matter even vilifying them too harshly and simply move down the long and winding road with the process of looting the American taxpayer and his children and his children’s children, lest there be bankruptcy and a creeping cancer that spreads over the body of the private sector.

I don’t claim to know anything about banking and economics, but I do know something else when I see it — treason.

US Seeks 'to Bypass Afghan President'


The US and European allies plan to create a new chief executive role in Afghanistan to bypass President Hamid Karzai, a report says.
The Guardian reported on Monday that the creating of the role, possibly a prime ministerial role, will be followed by planting a high-profile figure in the heart of the Kabul government.
"There needs to be a deconcentration of power," said one senior European official in defending the US initiative for an alternative chief executive in Afghanistan. "
We need someone next to Karzai, a sort of chief executive, who can get things done, who will be reliable for us and accountable to the Afghan people."
Karzai was put in power as a puppet president by the US and now that he won't play ball any more and wants the occupation to end they smear him with corruption charges and then look to replace him.
You just mark my words, watch for the placement of arch neocon and former US ambassador to the UN Zalmay Khalizad into this position!!

Court Again Concedes Vaccines Cause Autism

In a recent Huffington Post exclusive, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and investigative journalist David Kirby reveal that in the recent case of Bailey Banks vs HHS, the Vaccine Court has ruled vaccines caused Bailey’s autism and ordered compensation for his family.

Banks is the second case where the government could not deny the overwhelming evidence showing vaccines caused a child’s autism. The first was the case of Hannah Poling in March 2008. The government conceded the case and awarded her family compensation.

Small victories for these children, but what about the hundreds of thousands of other families struggling with autism? Who and what can they believe in this continuing vaccine-autism controversy?

Commander Confirms Netanyahu War Plans

Israel is preparing for all-out war on multiple fronts that include Iran, Syria and Lebanon, a senior military commander claims. Israeli army Home Front Command Major General Yair Golan said Sunday that Tel Aviv is preparing for "all possible scenarios", indicating that one such scenario would be to fight a simultaneous war against Iran, Syria and Lebanon.

The confirmation comes as US President Barack Obama seeks "new beginnings" with its arch-rival Iran. The US offer has been met with world praise but with fury in Tel Aviv.

Israeli media outlets late on Sunday began propagating wild scenarios that Iran is using the Lebanese Hezbollah to recruit Palestinian fighters to carry out terror attacks on Israel.

NSC Advisor Jones: 'I Take my Daily Orders From Kissinger'

Last week a caller to the Alex Jones Show mentioned a speech transcript posted on the CFR website where U.S. National Security Adviser Jones declared the following:

Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through Generaal (sic) Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today.

Mr. Jones is basically telling us the National Security Council is run by Henry Kissinger. The NSC is the principal forum used by Obama for considering national security and foreign policy matters. Biden, Clinton, Geithner, Gates, Mullen, Emanuel, Summers, and others are listed as participants, but not Henry Kissinger.

In 2006, the Associated Press reported that Kissinger advised Bush and Cheney, a fact included in Bob Woodward’s book “State of Denial.”

In other words, the Bush and Obama administrations — never mind the “change” rhetoric — receive the same advice (instructions) from the ruling elite.

Judgment Day for Geithner


Whether he deserves it or not, Timothy Geithner has become the poster boy for everything that's wrong with the government's scatterbrain financial rescue plan. Geithner was in the wheelhouse at the New York Fed when Bear Stearns and Lehman Bros defaulted, and he has played a central role in the $165 million AIG bonus scandal which has ignited a populist firestorm across the country. Now everything even remotely connected to the bank bailout has become a source of fist-clinching rage. The mood of the country has darkened from the steady downpour of bad economic news, the sharp decline in housing prices and the steep rise in unemployment. People are angry at the government, the banks and Wall Street. Their nerves are frayed and their patience is stretched to the limit.

It is in this atmosphere of simmering public fury that Geithner will announce the details of his long-awaited plan for removing up to $1 trillion of toxic assets from the balance sheets of some of the country's biggest banks. Information about Geithner's "Public-Private Partnership" and the so called Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) has been spotty so far, but enough is known about the plan to predict that it will likely be the noose into which Geithner thrusts his scrawny neck bringing his dismal career at Treasury to a end. The country will not endure another pretentious-sounding banker-friendly flim flam, which is precisely what Geithner has in mind.

Home School: A Quiet Revolution

Friends at college don’t always know what to think when they ask Chris Byrd where he went to high school.

“Really? You were home-schooled? Why aren’t you a freak?”

In Oklahoma, by some estimates, 33,000 children are facing that kind of question. If home schools were a district of their own, it would be twice the size of Broken Arrow Public Schools, and three times the size of Jenks.

British Police 'Guilty' of Terror Law Abuse

A British parliamentary committee finds the police guilty of misusing counter terrorism laws and being too heavy-handed toward protestors.

As thousands in London prepare to take to the streets for next months G20 summit, the House of Parliament's select committee on human rights has criticized the police for being too heavy-handed in their preparation for protests.

According to the committee, British police have manipulated legislation such as the counter terrorism laws in dealing with protestors, have resorted to intimidation and have abused its stop-and-search powers.

"The right to protest is a fundamental democratic right and one that the state and police have a duty to protect and facilitate," said the committee's chairman Andrew Dismore.

Scrapping ID Cards Won't Save Billions, Tories Warned

During Commons question time, Ms Smith said the Government was "on track" to introduce ID cards this autumn.

GPs' Surgeries 'To Sell Medicines'

Ministers are considering changing NHS rules to allow some doctors to sell “over-the-counter” products to patients for commercial gain for the first time.

The prospect of doctors making money from their patients’ illnesses will raise questions about one of the fundamental principles of the NHS: that treatment should be based on medical need and not commercial interest.

Last night the opposition parties claimed the move was potentially “dangerous” and could risk profiteering.

Israel’s War Crimes

For the first time since the establishment of Israel in 1948 the government is facing serious allegations of war crimes from respected public figures throughout the world. Even the secretary general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, normally so cautious about offending sovereign states – especially those aligned with its most influential member, the United States – has joined the call for an investigation and potential accountability.

To grasp the significance of these developments it is necessary to explain what made the 22 days of attacks in Gaza stand shockingly apart from the many prior recourses to force by Israel to uphold its security and strategic interests.In my view, what made the Gaza attacks launched on 27 December different from the main wars fought by Israel over the years was that the weapons and tactics used devastated an essentially defenceless civilian population.


The one-sidedness of the encounter was so stark, as signalled by the relative casualties on both sides (more than 100 to 1; 1300-plus Palestinians killed compared with 13 Israelis, and several of these by friendly fire), that most commentators refrained from attaching the label “war”.

Regime change in Iran means the Israelis get to have their Greater Israel sooner. Iranian support for Hezbollah and Hamas disappears and resistance by the Palestinians and the Lebanese to Israeli aggression all but disappears as well.

£46 Award for Innocent Man's 27 Years in Prison

Sean Hodgson, who spent 27 years in jail for a crime he did not commit, has been given just £46 by the government with which to restart his life.

The Prison Service has awarded the mentally ill former prisoner the equivalent of £1.70 for every year he was wrongly imprisoned.

The payout, a resettlement grant to help ease the victim of one of Britain's gravest miscarriages of justice back into society, was condemned as "the final insult" last night.

Julian Young, Hodgson's solicitor, said: "I am absolutely astounded. I find it quite unbelievable, it is scandalous that, in these exceptional circumstances, additional funds could not be found. He has served 27 years for something he didn't do and this is just insulting."

Hodgson, who requires psychiatric care and is described as deeply institutionalised, is staying at a hostel in central London. Lawyers said the payment, designed to tide the 57-year-old over until he can start supporting himself or apply for emergency loans, had left Hodgson even more confused following his release last week.

"He has no idea of budgeting or the cost of living. Every element of society - and his life - has changed," said Young.

Police Arrest 300 in Paris Riots Over Economic Crisis

MORE than 300 rioters were arrested in Paris as baton-wielding gangs clashed with police in protests over President Nicolas Sarkozy's handling of the financial crisis.

At least 10 police officers were seriously injured in the Place de la Nation, in the east of the French capital, where 85,000 people completed a largely peaceful protest.

Nationally, some three million showed their anger at President Sarkozy.
As fires were lit and shop windows smashed soon after 8pm last night, riot police unleashed rounds of tear gas at a mob of about 750 youths.

Fighting broke out on all corners of the square, with police snatch squads moving in to arrest ring leaders. Chants of "Sarkozy resign" were heard, as what appeared to be well organised gangs went on the rampage in surrounding streets, targeting banks and other symbols of capitalism.

By midnight there had been at least 300 arrests, with 49 charged with serious public order offences.

One of the men saw her and pointed his high-powered assault weapon directly at her through the window. She screamed. Suddenly the front door shattered, and men in black burst into the house.
Payton, one of the family’s two black Labrador Retrievers, was lying stretched out on the living room floor. As he turned his head towards the door, the terrified Georgia watched as the men shot him in the face multiple times. The other family dog, Chase, ran into the dining room in an attempt to escape from the screaming men, but they rushed the dining room from all directions and shot him also.

He had warned that police were eager to crack down on immigration critics. Almost prophetically he explained: “If immigration were reformed and criminals kept out, it would mean far fewer cops and less overtime, also fewer social workers. Immigration is a growth industry.”

'Down the Memory Hole,' Alan Greenspan Style


He's back and in denial in a March 11 Wall Street Journal op-ed headlined: "The Fed Didn't Cause the Housing Bubble." He lied, the way he did throughout his career and for 18.5 years as Fed chairman. How else could he have kept the job, be knighted in the UK for his "contribution to global economic stability, wisdom and skill," then afterwards be extolled by the Money Trust he enriched.
So now he's preserving his "legacy" by expunging its dark side the way Orwell described in 1984 - "down the memory hole," a convenient slot for "any document....due for destruction," politically inconvenient truths to be erased to preserve only sanitized versions for the public. It's called historical revisionism, but even some on the right aren't convinced.

Obama Opens Secret Laboratories to Germany

The Americans have always kept their research into anti-terrorism technologies top secret -- until now. A new treaty between Germany and the US will give German scientists access to highly restricted laboratories.

The research offensive began after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and has been fuelled with huge sums of money ever since. Universities, companies and secret laboratories are carrying out research into highly sensitive surveillance cameras, bomb detectors, biometric analysis software and vaccines against biological weapons, among other things. Until now, neither the general public nor the governments of the US's Western allies have learned much about the contents of that research.

Mother Given Parking Ticket "For Reviving Her Severely Disabled Son'

Penny Batkin, 40, says that Richmond Council has refused to back down over the fine despite receiving a letter of explanation from her, supported by her GP.

She says she was taking her son, Freddie, 4, to the Shooting Star children's hospice in Hampton when he began gasping for breath and turning blue.

Mrs Batkin, who has three children, was unaware that she had been captured by traffic wardens who were patrolling the area in a CCTV camera car.

Mrs Batkin, from Hampton Wick, near Richmond, south-west London, said her son is unable to walk or talk and has frequent seizures. "I was so furious when I got the letter. I could hear him gasping in the back seat. My immediate reaction was to pull over and deal with him. I had to release him from the rear passenger seat and resuscitate him. I was away from the busy traffic on a wide pavement and would not have restricted anyone walking past."

The council's appeals' officer quoted a section of the Highway Code in a written response to her letter. It related to parking on the pavement and the official insisted it had been unnecessary to park there.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, President Vaclav Klaus drew parallels between Brussels and the failed communist dictatorships of eastern Europe.

“My criticism is based on the sensitivity towards attempts to restrain freedom and democracy, and it does relate to the fact that for most of my life I lived in a political, social and economic system which was not free and was not democratic,” he said.

Monsanto's Bt Cotton Kills the Soil as Well as Farmers

Biosafety refers to ensuring that GMO’s do not harm the environment or health.

The soil, its fertility, and the organisms which maintain the fertility of soil are a vital aspect of the environment, especially in the context of food and agricultural production.

A recent scientific study carried out by Navdanya, compared the soil of fields where Bt-cotton had been planted for 3 years with adjoining fields with non GMO cotton or other crops. The region covered included Nagpur, Amravati and Wardha of Vidharbha which accounts for highest GMO cotton planting in India, and the highest rate of farmers suicides (4000 per year).

In 3 years, Bt-cotton has reduced the population of Actinomycetes by 17%. Actinomycetes are vital for breaking down cellulose and creating humus.

Bacteria were reduced by 14%. The total microbial biomass was reduced by 8.9%.

Vital soil beneficial enzymes which make nutrients available to plants have also been drastically reduced. Acid Phosphatase which contributes to uptake of phosphates was reduced by 26.6%. Nitrogenase enzymes which help fix nitrogen were reduced by 22.6%.

At this rate, in a decade of planting with GM cotton, or any GM crop with Bt genes in it, could lead to total destruction of soil organisms, leaving dead soil unable to produce food.

World Trade Center's Silverstein is Back for More - $4.5 Billion is Not Enough

But that wasn't enough for him. And now, almost two years later, he's back for more.
