Tzipi Livni Scoffs at Tory Pledge to End Threat of Arrest for Israel Officials


Tzipi Livni, leader of the Israeli opposition, responded with notable coolness when she was paid a visit by Edward Garnier, the shadow attorney general, this week.

Mr Garnier relayed a promise from David Cameron, the Conservative leader, that legislation to guarantee immunity for visiting Israeli officials would be one of his government's top priorities following a general election expected in May.'

Common Purpose Trustee and Scottish Sheriff Andrew Cubie Takes Charge of Special Needs School


Sir Andrew Cubie, the lawyer whose work has heavily influenced Scottish education policy, has been appointed chairman of a Perthshire school for children with special needs.

Sir Andrew, whose report in 2000 on tuition fees led to the up-front levy being abolished, said that he was “absolutely delighted” to be taking the helm at the New School, Butterstone.

He described the school, which takes pupils who have struggled in mainstream education, as “innovative and inspiring”.'

Kidnapping & Trading in Iraqi Children...


While quite a bit of a fuss was raised regarding the kidnapping, smuggling and tafficking in Haitian children and rightly so, the same can't be said about the fate of Iraqi children.

I have already written several posts about this new lucrative business in Iraq, that of the kidnapping, trafficking and trading of children, and I am always aghast to see that no media or organization for the protection of children, like the famous UNICEF or Save the Child or OXFAM or anyone else, has given enough attention and dedicated effort to denounce and stop this tragedy...

Of course, before our "liberation" such criminality involving the selling, buying, trading, kidnapping, killing of children was unheard of...am I to deduce that Freedom and Democracy are baby killers ? Am afraid so.'

Mass Protests Greet Sarkozy Visit to Haiti

French President Nicolas Sarkozy traveled for a one-day visit to Haiti on February 17, amid rising popular opposition to the Western-backed Préval government and international tensions over how to rebuild the country. The US military occupied Haiti after the devastating January 12 earthquake that killed over 200,000 people, wounded over 250,000, and destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure.

Sarkozy, the first French head of state ever to visit Haiti, was greeted with street protests by thousands of Haitians demanding the return of elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Ousted by a US- and French-backed coup in 2004, Aristide was flownto the Central African Republic, a former French colony. Aristide now lives in exile in South Africa. President René Préval, a former prime minister under Aristide in the 1990s, came to power in 2006 in elections supervised by the provisional government of Boniface Alexandre that was installed by the coup.

Préval tried to address the crowd outside the presidential palace. However, crowds shouted him down, and Préval left in a luxury Jeep, surrounded by bodyguards.'

UFO Cover-up


The security guard called and said, “Sir, there’s a glowing red object hovering right outside the front gate. I’ve got all the men out here with their weapons drawn.” We lost between 16 to 18 ICBMs [nuclear-tipped InterContinental Ballistic Missiles] at the same time UFOs were in the area and were observed by airmen….[A high-ranking Air Force Officer] said, “Stop the investigation; do no more on this and do not write a final report.” I heard that many of the guards that reported this incident were sent off to Viet Nam.'

Don't Mention Our Record in Power, Labour Orders Election Activists

Labour is telling its workers not to campaign on the party's record in power, a leaked document showed yesterday. The revelation came ahead of today's launch by Gordon Brown of Operation Fightback, at which he will tell activists to wage a political scrap for survival.

Mr Brown wants to use the launch rally to give Labour some momentum after months of dire economic news and setbacks. But the leaked document is an astonishing admission that voters have little to show for 13 years of Labour rule.'

Time To Leave Citibank Folks - Citi Warns of Withdrawal Gate

Seen on a recent Citibank (C) statement: "Effective April 1, 2010, we reserve the right to require (7) days advance notice before permitting a withdrawal from all checking accounts. While we do not currently exercise this right and have not exercised it in the past, we are required by law to notify you of this change."

Whoa. Is this an April Fool's joke? A contingency plan to defend against the idea of what "would happen if thousands of [bank] customers pledge to withdraw their money from the bank on a certain day, unless the bonuses are capped?" A strategem cooked up by Citi's new shareholders from the hedge fund industry, an industry in which such withdrawal gates are common? An idea backed by Citi's big shareholder, Uncle Sam, or one of its regulators, Sheila Bair?'

Social Security Will Fall To Obama Before The Taliban Do

Hank Paulson, the Gold Sacks bankster/US Treasury Secretary, who deregulated the financial system, caused a world crisis that wrecked the prospects of foreign banks and governments, caused millions of Americans to lose retirement savings, homes, and jobs, and left taxpayers burdened with multi-trillions of dollars of new US debt, is still not in jail. He is writing in the New York Times urging that the mess he caused be fixed by taking away from working Americans the Social Security and Medicare for which they have paid in earmarked taxes all their working lives.

The Tide Has Changed by Gilad Atzmon


If Britain was collaborating with Israel at any level, we better know it all, we better find out whether it was a person or a body within the Government or the intelligence, or just an ordinary sayan* in the Home Office or any other government office. If there was British collaboration, we better identify what it was exactly, who decided to serve Israeli murderous interests in our midst. We also better find out who in Britain decided to put British interests and British security in the Arab world at enormous risk.

In the Guardian yesterday Seumas Milne didn’t save his words either. “Instead of setting off a diplomatic backlash, the British government sat on its hands for almost a week after it was reportedly first passed details of the passport abuse. And while the Foreign Office finally summoned the Israeli ambassador to ‘share information’, rather than to protest, Gordon Brown could ­ yesterday only promise a ‘full investigation’”.'

Psychiatrists Want to Call Being Angry a Mental Illness. How Utterly Mad!

‘Hoarding’ is just one of the new mental conditions being added to the psychiatrists’ bible, or the Diagnostic And Statistical Manual Of Mental Disorders (DSM), to give it its proper name.
Other new conditions identified as possibly needing professional help include binge eating - which is said to affect many people who are seriously obese - and ‘cognitive tempo disorder’, which seems very like laziness (symptoms include dreaminess and sluggishness).

There’s also ‘intermittent explosive disorder’, which involves occasionally becoming very angry suddenly.
Most bizarre of the proposed additions is one defined as ‘getting a thrill at being outraged by pornography’.

How Israel's Lobby Challenges Rule of Law in America

British Death Camps In Germany After WWII

Prisoners complained thumbscrews and "shin screws" were employed at the prison and Dr Jordan's report highlighted the small, round scars that he had seen on the legs of two men, "which were said to be the result of the use of some instrument to facilitate questioning". One of these men was Hans Habermann, a 43-year-old disabled German Jew who had survived three years in Buchenwald concentration camp.

All of these men had been held at Bad Nenndorf, a small, once-elegant spa resort near Hanover. Here, an organisation called the Combined Services Detailed Interrogation Centre (CSDIC) ran a secret prison following the British occupation of north-west Germany in 1945.

CSDIC, a division of the War Office, operated interrogation centres around the world, including one known as the London Cage, located in one of London's most exclusive neighbourhoods. Official documents discovered last month at the National Archives at Kew, south-west London, show that the London Cage was a secret torture centre where German prisoners who had been concealed from the Red Cross were beaten, deprived of sleep, and threatened with execution or with unnecessary surgery.'

Vortex


Many people have experienced an event that involves an apparition or creature entering or leaving a vortex/portal. Consider these two accounts:

" I woke up from a dream one night back in April ( year deleted ) and I saw a tall, shadowy being standing near my bed. As I screamed the being moved without walking toward the wall as though it were in a vortex. As the being moved away from me it became smaller in size as it neared the eye of the vortex. At this point, the being suddenly disappeared. Then I fell back to sleep, but I remembered the event the next morning and I know that I was fully conscience when this happened."

Or consider this eyewitness account:
"I was on my morning walk and as I was entering a grassy area at the park near my home when I happened to look up at the sky just above the tree line to the west. I saw a sliver disk-like craft hovering there, and I observed it for about 20 seconds before this craft seemed to simply vanish. It did not move in any direction. It was there then it was just gone ...."

These two accounts by eyewitnesses demonstrates that something strange is going on that is perplexing and enshrouded in mystery. Objects or beings that simply vanish into thin air is presently beyond the explanation of conventional science...... But this is indeed what seems to be going on in the realm of UFOs and otherworldly beings.'

Rothschild's Secret 'Solution' to Greek 'Problem'


A friend of mine who is a now a disilusioned high ranking member of the Jewish Freemasonry in Budapest has told me what is coming regarding the Greek crisis.

Greece was chosen to play the role of the European Union bankrupt member state in order to "create" the big problem to which the European Union is going to "find" the "solution" soon. Greece was chosen because it symbolizes Europe (nobody in Europe cares about countries like Hungary or Estonia) and because its economy was relatively easy to devastate after it renounced its own currency.

The European "elites" are using Greece to persuade the sheeple that if the Greek problem is not fixed, Southern Europe will go bankrupt which will trigger the collapse of the whole European financial system and thus the bankruptcy of the whole European economy.'

School Used Student Laptop Webcams to Spy on Them at School and Home


According to the filings in Blake J Robbins v Lower Merion School District (PA) et al, the laptops issued to high-school students in the well-heeled Philly suburb have webcams that can be covertly activated by the schools' administrators, who have used this facility to spy on students and even their families. The issue came to light when the Robbins's child was disciplined for "improper behavior in his home" and the Vice Principal used a photo taken by the webcam as evidence. The suit is a class action, brought on behalf of all students issued with these machines.

If true, these allegations are about as creepy as they come. I don't know about you, but I often have the laptop in the room while I'm getting dressed, having private discussions with my family, and so on. The idea that a school district would not only spy on its students' clickstreams and emails (bad enough), but also use these machines as AV bugs is purely horrifying.'

Fourth Amendment Trashed As Airport Tyranny Hits The Streets

Grounds for Hope and Despair

Police states remove accountability from those in authority. One result is to remove constraints on behavior. Even when there are constraints, some spouses abuse one another and some parents abuse children. Some people abuse animals. Even many Americans have abusive tendencies as Abu Ghraib makes completely clear.

It starts with little things and works its way up. Tens of thousands of people have experienced unsatisfactory encounters with the Transportation Safety Administration, otherwise known as the airport police. In a recent case a police officer and his wife were taking their four year old son to Disney World for his birthday. The child has to wear leg braces due to problems associated with his premature birth. The TSA screener ordered the braces removed before the boy could walk through the detector. But, of course, the boy could not walk without the braces. The police officer and his wife were stunned to find that TSA cannot tell the difference between an American police officer and his disabled child and a terrorist threat.'

Haiti’s Elite Eyes Profits as Millions Face Disease and Hunger

"A crisis is a terrible thing to waste," Georges Sassine, president of Haiti’s manufacturers association, told the Washington Post.

"I think we need to give the message that we are open for business. This is really a land of opportunities."

Meanwhile, "US firms have begun jockeying for a bonanza of cleanup work," the Miami Herald reported last week, adding that "At least two politically connected US firms have enlisted powerful local allies in Haiti to help compete for the high-stakes business".'

Did Goldman Sachs Help Britain Hide Its Debts Too?

Much noise this morning surrounding the news that Goldman Sachs (and a number of other banks) allegedly helped Greece to hide the full scale of its ballooning government debts through financial jiggery-pokery over the past decade or so. Eurostat has now demanded an explanation from the Greeks for $1bn of currency swaps it says it was unaware of (though Greece seems to be insisting the authorities did know).

So, the obvious question goes, what about the UK? Did Britain hide its debts? Was Goldman Sachs involved? Should we panic?

To which the answers, respectively, are: yes, yes and no. Britain has been finding various ways to hide its debt off its balance sheet for years; Goldman Sachs was one of the prime movers in this industry, through its infrastructure arm; but the fact is we (and by extension, one presumes, investors) have known about this for quite some time. The chief modus operandi here was the private finance initiative, something which helped the Government remove just south of £50bn from the official balance sheet. Goldman was a big player in the industry. But let’s not get carried away by vampire squid criticism here – it was one of many players in a well-established industry.'

Greece Loses EU Voting Power in Blow to Sovereignty

The Long Arm of Israel Better be Amputated

We have learned in the last few days that the Dubai assassins were Mossad agents who stole identities of six UK citizens and faked at least five other European passports. Dubai Police yesterday presented footage of some of the 11 ‘Europeans’ suspected of killing Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

According to the Guardian, “Official sources said UK authorities issued the British passports used by the assassins in Dubai last month.”

At least six of the people whose names appeared on the British passports used by the assassins in Dubai, live in Israel. Naturally they all deny any involvement. It is indeed more than likely that they have nothing to do with the specific crime, however, assuming that they are Jewish immigrants of Israel, to a certain degree, they are complicit in the Zionist crime, a crime that is now regarded by many as a plain crime against humanity.'

Wall Street Whistleblower Proves That Money Never Sleeps

Pharmagate: Big Pharma Researcher Admits to Faking Dozens of Research Studies for Pfizer, Merck


It's being called the largest research fraud in medical history. Dr. Scott Reuben, a former member of Pfizer's speakers' bureau, has agreed to plead guilty to faking dozens of research studies that were published in medical journals.

Now being reported across the mainstream media is the fact that Dr. Reuben accepted a $75,000 grant from Pfizer to study Celebrex in 2005. His research, which was published in a medical journal, has since been quoted by hundreds of other doctors and researchers as "proof" that Celebrex helped reduce pain during post-surgical recovery. There's only one problem with all this: No patients were ever enrolled in the study!

Dr. Scott Reuben, it turns out, faked the entire study and got it published anyway.'

Police State USA: TSA to Swab Airline Passengers' Hands in Search For Explosives


To the list of instructions you hear at airport checkpoints, add this: "Put your palms forward, please."

Previously, screeners swabbed some carry-on luggage and other objects as they searched for the needle in the security haystack -- components of terrorist bombs in an endless stream of luggage.

But after the Christmas Day attempted bombing of Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit, Michigan, the TSA began a program of swabbing passengers' hands, which could be contaminated by explosive materials, experts say. The TSA will greatly expand the swabbing in the coming weeks, the agency said.'

The Information Super-Sewer: Will the Internet be Hijacked by Corporate Interests

The Internet has become one more tool hijacked by corporate interests to accelerate our cultural, political and economic decline. The great promise of the Internet, to open up dialogue, break down cultural barriers, promote democracy and unleash innovation and creativity, has been exposed as a scam. The Internet is dividing us into antagonistic clans, in which we chant the same slogans and hate the same enemies, while our creative work is handed for free to Web providers who use it as bait for advertising.

Ask journalists, photographers, musicians, cartoonists or artists what they think of the Web. Ask movie and film producers. Ask architects or engineers. The Web efficiently disseminates content, but it does not protect intellectual property rights. Writers and artists are increasingly unable to make a living. And technical professions are under heavy assault. Anything that can be digitized can and is being outsourced to countries such as India and China where wages are miserable and benefits nonexistent. Welcome to the new global serfdom where the only professions that pay a living wage are propaganda and corporate management.'

The Bush Family's Project Hammer


In 1989 President George H. W. Bush began the multi-billion dollar Project Hammer program using an investment strategy to bring about the economic destruction of the Soviet Union including the theft of the Soviet treasury, the destabilization of the ruble, funding a KGB coup against Gorbachev in August 1991 and the seizure of major energy and munitions industries in the Soviet Union. Those resources would subsequently be turned over to international bankers and corporations. On November 1, 2001, the second operative in the Bush regime, President George W. Bush, issued Executive Order 13233 on the basis of “national security” and concealed the records of past presidents, especially his father’s spurious activities during 1990 and 1991. Consequently, those records are no longer accessible to the public.1 The Russian coup plot was discussed in June 1991 when Yeltsin visited with Bush in conjunction with his visit to the United States. On that same visit, Yeltsin met discreetly with Gerald Corrigan, the chairman of the New York Federal Reserve.'

The House of Rothschild was fearful that the new United States Republic would begin printing its own money and have a central bank not tied into the House of Rothschild. This would weaken the House of Rothschild’s control over the monetary currencies of the world. They had already established a secret bloodline elitist society, incorporating thirteen of the world’s most wealthy families, to eventually establish a New World Order with control over the world’s economy.

In 1832, William Russell, whose family fortunes were made smuggling opium to China through Turkey, founded a chapter of the House of Rothschild’s Illuminati—Knights of Templar at Yale University and called it Skull and Bones. Code numbers are important as a form of identification and communication to the upper echelon within this secret elitist society. Three is a key number. The number 33 is a passage into one of the highest stages of membership within this secret elitist group. The number 13 is a form of identification among these elitists. The official inscription of the Order of Skull and Bones within the building at Yale University called The Tomb is 322. Some people interpret this as the year of its founding, 1832, and that Skull and Bones is one of the 3 chapters of this Brotherhood of Death. The first chapter was founded in Germany. The second Chapter is at Yale University. The third chapter was to eventually be founded, when the time was right, at Tulane University School of Medicine located in New Orleans, Louisiana.'

Israel Bombs Gaza’s Agricultural Sector To The Brink

“If we didn’t get the wheat planted today, we would not have had crops this year,” says Abu Saleh Abu Taima, eyeing the two Israeli military jeeps parked along the border fence east of Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip. Although his land is more than 300 meters away, technically outside of the Israeli-imposed “buffer zone,” Abu Taima has reason to be wary.

“They shot at us yesterday. I was here with my wife and nephews".'

The Next Climate-gate?

In a January 29 report, they find that starting in 1990, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) began systematically eliminating climate measuring stations in cooler locations around the world. Yes, that's right. They began eliminating stations that tended to record cooler temperatures and drove up the average measured temperature. The eliminated stations had been in higher latitudes and altitudes, inland areas away from the sea, as well as more rural locations. The drop in the number of weather stations was dramatic, declining from more than 6,000 stations to fewer than 1,500.'

The Rise and Fall of Baroness Jenny Tonge A True Friend of Palestine


It is with great sadness that we see a staunch supporter of the Palestinian people removed from her position as Health Spokeswoman for the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords. This is a clear sign of the political power that the Pro Israeli Lobby have over all political leaders and their party. This does not stop here in the UK but also extends throughout the US and the EU. So what caused such a dramatic response from the Lib Dems?

I guess dear Jenny has been fighting the traitors of all political parties for some time especially those who appear to pay more attention to their election campaign funds tha keeping a moral and ethical stance in the Houses of Parliament. They appear to protect those that financially prop them up in return for support or favour of anything that aids the Pro Israeli cause. The Friends of Israel are certainly not a group to be taken lightly and should you cross swords with them you can expect severe repercussions as Jenny has now found out.'

Whistleblower Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, Ike’s Great-Granddaughter, Outs Secret Mars Colony Project

In her statement, Ms. Eisenhower details how Agent X, her principal “handler” from the secret Mars project, eventually confessed to her that “He knew a lot about me from numerous sources that overlapped with one another – from Freemasons, Knights Templar, to this hidden branch of the government that was behind creating this Mars mission. They understood me based on remote viewing and time travel devices and they also seemed to recruit people from the Freemasons and Knights Templar who were well aware of the Magdalene path. They seemed to all be connected, but someone was taking advantage of it all and trying to stay one step ahead of how nature may have unfolded as far as us coming together into Union. I did not know he was an agent until months into the relationship and I later found out that it was them who sent him to find me and it was all a set-up".'

Afghan Leaders Call Surge ' Imbecilic and Tragic'

Last year a number of contractors were thrown out of Afghanistan over the infamous “butT-crack” video showing nude imbeciles involved in an unsanitary ceremony. Little did we know that these must have been the people who planned the American “Surge” meant to stabilize Afghanistan, supplied the intelligence for General McChrystal, may actually have written his report. Top leaders of the Afghan people weighed in on our operation in Helmand province with American Marines and British troops. They call it “imbecilic” and “tragic,” faulting nearly every aspect as uninformed, misinformed or simply wrong.

Tribal “Jirgas” (councils) of the real government of Afghanistan, the actual rulers of that fractured state are behind one thing now, getting America out of Afghanistan and getting rid of Karzai, who they see is, not only an American puppet but one of the most useless human beings ever born. Why mince words. Actually, I am, their real words are much worse than anything that could be printed, their rage, their words and their tears.'

Fluoridation Issue Escalates Into Rage in California Town


The editorial in the Watsonville Register-Pajaronian offered local voters some blunt advice: "Shield your eyes," it said, "because the City Council is preparing to spit in your face."

That was this month, as the council inched toward finally fluoridating the city's water -- a state-mandated action that has been bitterly debated since city residents narrowly voted to block it in 2002. At a council meeting in January, an anti-fluoridation activist held up a sign alluding to Nazis. When speakers threatened to boycott local businesses if fluoridation goes through, a council member told them to jump off the parking-garage roof.'

Stop Monsanto's GMO Contamination


During the Bush administration, Monsanto illegally won USDA approval for its genetically engineered (GE) alfalfa by convincing regulators to bypass a mandatory environmental review. In response to a lawsuit by consumer groups, the courts then stepped in and banned GE alfalfa until the USDA followed the law.

In December, the USDA released its belated review of Monsanto's GE alfalfa seed and determined that Monsanto's alfalfa met the Obama Administration's standards, despite the risk of organic contamination.

This conclusion came despite the acknowledgment by USDA researchers that GE alfalfa is virtually certain to "contaminate" normal seeds. Cross-contamination is the number one concern with genetically engineered crops.'

Israeli War Criminal Livni Willing to Risk Travel to UK and 'Face Arrest'

Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni says she is willing to visit Britain despite the risk of her being arrested for war crimes against the Palestinians.

The visit is meant to push the White Hall into changing a law which has occasioned an arrest warrant against her.

A British court's ruling last year convicted Livni of links to atrocities committed by Israel during its late December 2008 assaults on the Gaza Strip which left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead. The court issued her an arrest warrant which would come into effect should she visit Britain.'

The Ficticious Legal Entity Called a Person'


A quote, famously attributed to Rothschild agent Col. Edward House, but rarely understood except by "one man in a million" envisages people as collateral on the national debt:

"[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a National system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging.

By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer not being able to work and earn a living.

They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges.'

Total Madness: 'Cut Working Week to 21 hours', Urges Think Tank

The working week should be cut to 21 hours to help boost the economy and improve quality of life, a left-wing think tank has said.

The New Economics Foundation claimed in a report the reduction in hours would help to ease unemployment and overwork.

The think tank said people were working longer hours now than 30 years ago even though unemployment was at 2.5 million.

The foundation admitted people would earn less, but said they would have more time to carry out worthy tasks.

They would have better scope to look after children or other dependants, there would be more opportunity for civic duties, and older people could even delay retirement, it said.'

What makes this even more curious is that the money was provided by a body set up to promote British culture internationally.'

Carbon Currency: A New Beginning for Technocracy?


The new currency, simply called Carbon Currency, is designed to support a revolutionary new economic system based on energy (production, and consumption), instead of price. Our current price-based economic system and its related currencies that have supported capitalism, socialism, fascism and communism, is being herded to the slaughterhouse in order to make way for a new carbon-based world.

Unfortunately for individual people living in this new system, it will also require authoritarian and centralized control over all aspects of life, from cradle to grave.'

The doctors then wrote to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) asking to see the material. But they were told their request was being treated under the terms of the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act which contains several caveats giving the Government the right to refuse access to some official papers.

CLIMATEGATE - IPCC Wrong Again on Two Counts- Dutch Sea Levels & African Crops


One of the most widely quoted and most alarmist passages in the main 2007 report was a warning that, by 2020, global warming could reduce crop yields in some countries in Africa by 50 per cent

The origin of this claim was a report written for a Canadian advocacy group by Ali Agoumi, a Moroccan academic who draws part of his current income from advising on how to make applications for "carbon credits"

As his primary sources he cited reports for three North African governments. But none of these remotely supported what he wrote.'

Senior Scots Scientist in Climate Probe Row

An eminent Scottish scientist is facing calls to resign from the "climategate" inquiry, amid concerns over his impartiality.

Only 24 hours after another panel member quit, questions emerged over Professor Geoffrey Boulton because of his previous views that climate change is caused by human activity.

The investigation was set up to look into whether scientists at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) covered up flawed data.

But some have cast doubt on whether the inquiry results can be trusted if Prof Boulton, general secretary of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, remains on the panel.'

Spying for Dollars: Military Contractors and Security Firms Reap Huge Profits

Citing reports by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), journalist Alice Lipowicz disclosed that the "subsidiaries helped the contractors reduce taxes, in part by avoiding Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes for U.S. workers hired at the foreign subsidiaries".'

Israeli Warplanes Draw Lebanese Anti-Aircraft Fire


The Lebanese Army has opened anti-aircraft fire on intruding Israeli military aircrafts flying low over its airspace, reports indicate.

The Lebanese forces launched the defensive fire on four intruding aircrafts "overflying southern Lebanon, Hasbaya, the Shouf and the Bekaa," all in southeastern Lebanon, read an army statement quoted by the AFP.

One such incident last month prompted deputy spokesman for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon Andrea Tenenti to warn about Israel's violation of the Lebanese airspace. Tenenti said the incursions were in contravention of the UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended a 33-day Israeli war on Lebanon in the summer of 2006.

The incident follows last month's threat of another war on Lebanon by an Israeli minister.'

Climategate U-Turn as Scientist at Centre of Row Admits: There Has Been No Global Warming Since 1995


The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.
Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.
Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.'

NHS Bribes Girls to Have Cervical Cancer Vaccine With £45 of Shopping Vouchers


Teenage girls are being rewarded with shopping vouchers for having the cervical cancer jab.

Girls aged 16 to 18 are being given £45 of vouchers if they complete an inoculation course against the HPV virus, the sexually transmitted infection that causes 70 per cent of cervical tumours.

A national campaign to vaccinate girls aged 12 to 18 has been criticised over fears it may encourage promiscuity and raise pregnancy rates, and uptake has been low among girls aged 16 to 18.'

Control Freaks Want Web Licences to End Bloggers' Anonymity

The recent uprising in the blogosphere that resulted in the overturning of the Global Warming consensus can only have focused our rulers’ attention more acutely on this infuriating challenge to their totalitarian control. “What will go next?” they must be asking themselves. Unrestricted immigration? Punitive taxation? Even the European Union? With the helots exploiting a loophole in the PC Curtain that has otherwise been so remorselessly drawn down over freedom of expression, the internet represents a dangerously subversive force, fulfilling the role in the West that was formerly performed by samizdat publications inside the Soviet Union.

American protesters are most vociferous in defence of their rights because that is their culture. Some of them claim that British people are being dangerously indifferent to the long-term potential for censorship of the so-called Digital Economy Bill being slithered through Parliament by Lord Mandelson. The inference they draw is that, just as Britons supinely submitted to firearms legislation that has led to a situation where “only the bad guys have guns”, we may be sleepwalking into internet slavery.

The technique is familiar. The powers-that-be allow a scandalous situation to develop whereby no serious attempt is made to police paedophile, pornographic and criminal activity on the web. Then the authorities use the excuse of public concern to overreact and impose Draconian controls that police ordinary citizens but are usually circumvented by criminals. It is a familiar scenario, offline as well as in cyberspace.'

USA Accidentally Admits That Iran Has No Nuclear Weapons Program

Western countries reacted with cynicism to Iran's declaration, with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner describing the plan as a political bluff.

Kouchner claimed that Iran does not have the ability to enrich uranium to 20 percent and accused Tehran of "blackmail."

White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs Thursday cast doubt on the announcement that Iran produced the first batch of 20 percent uranium.

"The Iranian nuclear program has undergone a series of problems throughout the year," Gibbs said. "We do not believe they have the capability to enrich to the degree to which they now say they are enriching.'

Detroit Schools Offer Class in How to Work at Walmart


Four inner-city Detroit high schools have decided that employment with Walmart is an opportunity worth training their students to pursue. The schools have teamed up with the giant merchandiser to offer a for-credit class in job-readiness training that also includes entry-level after-school jobs.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the principal at one of the schools optimistically suggested that "the program will allow students an opportunity to earn money and to be exposed to people from different cultures -- since all of the stores are in the suburbs."

The announcement of the program outraged Donna Stern, the Midwest coordinator for the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights And Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). "They’re going to train students to be subservient workers" she told the Free Press. "This is not why parents send them to school".'

New Tax Bombshell: 20% VAT


A rise in VAT is looming whichever party wins the general election, as Labour and the Conservatives draw up plans to balance Britain’s books.

Alistair Darling and George Osborne, the Shadow Chancellor, are both considering raising VAT to as high as 20 per cent — the European average — from the current rate of 17.5 per cent, The Times has learnt.

Doing so would raise an extra £13 billion a year at a time when financial markets are searching for signs that whoever takes power is serious about tackling Britain’s £178 billion deficit.'

Collapse of the Euro is 'Inevitable': Bailing Out the Greek Economy Futile, says French Banking Chief

The European single currency is facing an 'inevitable break-up' a leading French bank claimed yesterday. Strategists at Paris-based Société Générale said that any bailout of the stricken Greek economy would only provide 'sticking plasters' to cover the deep- seated flaws in the eurozone bloc.

The stark warning came as the euro slipped further on the currency markets and dire growth figures raised the prospect of a 'double-dip' recession in the embattled zone.

The statement has angered Arab Israeli MPs, who said in very stern remarks that no one can dictate to Arab citizens to tell them where to live.'
