University Strips Psychiatrist Chairman Of Post After Big Pharma Ties Revealed

A prominent psychiatric doctor who promoted antidepressant drugs has been stripped of his chairmanship at Emory University (again!) after investigators from Senator Charles Grassley's office uncovered secret financial ties to Big Pharma.

Dr. Charles B. Nemeroff received $800,000 from GlaxoSmithKline, but failed to accurately report the income, say investigators from Grassley's office. When Emory University learned of the lapse in professional ethics, it stripped Nemeroff of his valuable chairmanship and permanently barred him from his post.

Notably, he was not fired from his job, nor barred from practicing psychiatric medicine, which just goes to show you that the practice of doctors maintaining financial ties to drug companies is openly tolerated by both state medical authorities and Emory University.

Obama's New Intelligence Chief Ran Interference for Indonesia's Butchers

The presumptive appointment by President-elect Barack Obama of retired Admiral Dennis C. Blair as his new Director of National Intelligence is being greeted with cheers by the national media, which hail his experience, bureaucratic infighting skills and comparatively moderate views on national security issues.

But human rights supporters are right to be worried that Dennis Blair will hardly lead the charge for reform in the nation’s intelligence community after the Bush Administration’s embrace of torture, rendition and other crimes. For in the period leading up to and following East Timor’s August 1999 referendum on independence from Indonesia Blair, from his perch as US Commander in Chief of the Pacific (CINCPAC) from February 1999 to May 2000, ran interference for the Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) as they and their militia proxies committed crimes against humanity on an awesome scale.


Oxford Council Gives Homeless Train Tickets and Orders Them To Leave

It's not quite what happened to Mary and Joseph when they were looking for somewhere to stay the night.
For rough sleepers in Oxford have been warned to either prove they have a personal link to the city or leave.
Around 200 homeless people unable to meet the criteria set by the city's Reconnection programme have been given a train ticket and sent back to where they came from.


One Hundred MPs to Rebel Over Sale of Royal Mail

More than 100 Labour MPs are ready to defy the Government and join a guerrilla campaign against moves to sell off a stake in Royal Mail.
The backlash against the part-privatisation – with plans being drawn up for protests around the country – threatens to present Gordon Brown with his biggest rebellion of 2009.


EU Spends Billions Each Year on 'Vain PR Exercises'

New research by Open Europe, a think-tank that supports EU reform, has found that so-called European "information" campaigns are one-sided and boast a budget that is bigger than Coca-Cola's total worldwide advertising account.


Israel Poised For Large Scale Assault On Gaza

MILITANTS in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip were warned yesterday they would pay a "heavy price" if they continued to target Israel.
As the Israeli army reportedly pressed on with preparations for a possible large-scale assault on the coastal territory, Ehud Barak, the defence minister, and Tzipi Livni, the foreign minister, both insisted Israel would respond to protect its citizens.


What Is Left?

Who will weep for our lost Nation? How many citizens will cry in anguish for our republic, devastated and destroyed by an elite group of insiders who, bit by bit, through stealth, lies, deceit, chicanery, and outright criminal fraud have wreaked Constitutional havoc. Checks and balances are gone. Congress is bought and sold by corporate lobbyists. Congress no longer works for us. The judiciary, packed with neocons, then shoves new "legal interpretations" down our own throats or disregards time-honored ones.

Our country is no longer "we, the people." Now, it is "we, the corporations."

Is this not fascism?


Barack Obama-The Naked Emperor

The Battle To Save The Fiat Money System Has Begun

The disinformation by the global financial dailies in the last twelve months as to the cause of the global financial tsunami, serve the same purpose as the global mass media when they perpetuated the lies that lulled the people to support the war criminals Bush, Blair and Howard to launch the barbaric war against Iraq and Afghanistan which resulted in the genocide of millions, the mutilation of hundreds of thousands, physically and psychologically, and the devastation of an entire nation.

Hidden behind the headlines of the financial destruction that is sweeping across the globe, lies another story – a dark tale of men who orchestrated the crisis and have amassed enormous wealth and power at the expense of the millions who are now unemployed and whose homes have been foreclosed. This select group of men is in absolute control of the unfolding events. Who are they?


Canada, U.S. Agree to Use Each Other's Troops In Civil Emergencies

Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other's borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.

Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.

The U.S. military's Northern Command, however, publicized the agreement with a statement outlining how its top officer, Gen. Gene Renuart, and Canadian Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, head of Canada Command, signed the plan, which allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency.

Journalists Worry 'Big Brother Law' Will Kill Press Freedom

A new law working its way toward passage in Germany has journalists worried. Certain provisions, they say, could eliminate the ability for reporters to protect their sources. Still, the measure is likely to go into effect early next year.
It has been called the "Big Brother" law in the German media due to its provisions allowing online and telephone surveillance. The Interior Ministry in Berlin describes it as a necessary step to protect the country from the dangers of international terrorism.
Notice how this is not just happening in the UK. Every country is controlled by the same elite and what happens in one country is always mirrored in them all!

Teacher Criticises 'Can't Touch' Culture After Being Throttled by Pupil as Colleagues Looked On

A teacher who won £250,000 compensation after a pupil tried to strangle him has criticised a 'can't touch' culture in schools after other staff initially refused to intervene.

Colin Adams, 50, was attacked by a 12- year- old boy, who knocked him to the floor before punching and kicking him, and grabbing his neck. But despite other teachers yelling at the boy to stop, no one stepped in to help.

Mr Adams's ordeal ended only after another teacher eventually came to his aid by forcing the boy's thumbs back to release his hold. Later, the unnamed teacher admitted to Mr Adams that he was afraid the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, would accuse him of assault.


Labour Planning Secret Tax on 'Nice Houses'

Tax inspectors have divided England into 10,000 new "localities" with each neighbourhood ranked on the socio-economic class of its residents and environmental factors such as crime and traffic levels.

The inspectors have even purchased demographic data disclosing how many company executives, pensioners or students live in particular streets, The Daily Telegraph has learned.

This has been collated on a secret database which is being used to assess the desirability of neighbourhoods to help determine council tax bills if Labour wins power again at the next election.


Georgia President Saakashvili 'Punched' Prime Minister in The Face

Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili allegedly punched his prime minister in the face before throwing a telephone at him.


A Computer Inside A Molecule

Over the last 60 years, ever-smaller generations of transistors have driven exponential growth in computing power. Could molecules, each turned into miniscule computer components, trigger even greater growth in computing over the next 60?

Atomic-scale computing, in which computer processes are carried out in a single molecule or using a surface atomic-scale circuit, holds vast promise for the microelectronics industry. It allows computers to continue to increase in processing power through the development of components in the nano- and pico scale. In theory, atomic-scale computing could put computers more powerful than today’s supercomputers in everyone’s pocket.


British Zionist Led Aristocracy Mass Internet Censorship

The UK has recently introduced a national Internet censorship scheme, a national ID card and is about to spend 12 billion pounds pushing the British population's web-searches, emails, sms messages and telephone callings records through a central database run by its spy agency, GCHQ. This month saw a secret UK court hearing, with secret participants, produce a secret order to secretly gag the population, the terms of which are secret and the revelation of which is punishable by up to 15 years of imprisonment.

The Rockets Of Hunger and Israeli Propaganda

received a message from the photojournalist and peace activist Sameh Habeeb from Gaza while I was looking at the news in the Austrian TV, which pierced my ears with talk about the rockets which Hamas supposedly shoots at the “innocent Israeli occupation” which has jailed one and half million in Gaza since before Al-Aqsa Intifada broke out.

The rockets shown on Austrian TV looked to me like the fancy Bengala Rockets which are shot here while celebrating new year, and the clips shown on TV raise many questions.


Nixon-Kissinger Celebrated '72 Bombing of N. Vietnam, New Transcripts Show

Former National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger and President Richard Nixon discussed their satisfaction over the U.S. bombing campaign of North Vietnam, according to previously unpublished transcripts of their telephone conversations obtained by George Washington University's National Security Archive and released Tuesday.

The telephone communications between Nixon and Kissinger also illustrate Kissinger’s efforts to spin the media, monitor and control the process of decision-making, disparage rivals, keep important associates, such as his patron Nelson Rockefeller, in the loop, and win over critics


Tom Cruise, Scientology, and Holocaust Revisionism

Tom Cruise is asking for your Valkyrie movie ticket dollars, but spends his money to fund a cult with a similar attitude towards lesser races and global domination. Should the actor be separated from his actions? As a producer of the movie, he earns money from every ticket. Should you care where that money is going?


Who Really Sunk The Lusitania?

The sister ship to the Titanic, the great luxury liner the Lusitania, the worlds largest ship at the time, was leaving New York on May 1st 1915 on its journey to Liverpool, when it was sunk by German submarine U-20, piloted by Kapitan Walter Schwieger.

Or was it?


The Federal Reserve Abolition Act

On June 15, 2007, Ron Paul introduced HR 2755: Federal Reserve Abolition Act. There were no co-sponsors, no further action was taken, and the legislation was referred to the House Committee on Financial Services and effectively pigeonholed and ignored.

It's a bold and needed measure to "abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks, to repeal the Federal Reserve Act, and for other purposes."

The Bird Flu Hoax and Martial Law

A Bird Flu pandemic could be the clincher to institute Martial law in the United States, and create chaos around the World. There is much evidence that the Bird Flu is a hoax.
There is a person called Dr. True Ott that states the Bird flu (H5N1) is the 1918 flu repackaged. The 1918 Flu Pandemic killed mostly people between the ages of 18 and 36. Think about a bio-weapon that can target that age group — this is your armed forces ages. I believe, after listening, and watching and reading the material cited in this blog that this is a very serious possible scenario.

If this does materialise, it will allow George W. Bush (future Presidents) to declare martial law under (NSPD 51, HSPD 20) and the Patriot Act. In addition, the Posse Comitatus Act of June 16, 1878 was reversed on October 17, 2006 by Bill 5122 (sponsored by John Warner). Now our government can use our own Military against “We The People”.

Note from Dr A. True Ott: “It appears that the 1918 Spanish Flu virus has been weaponized and injected into hundreds of thousands of individuals (i.e. military personnel) with 300 million vaccinations stockpiled for the rest of America. The virus’ RNA has been modified, and the virus now can be activated in vivos by means of specific Hz frequencies. Which brings us to the ‘Sound of Silence’ technology…” (December 16, 2008.

The Dark Prince's Christmas With The Illuminati

Damian Green Was Secretly Recorded by Metropolitan Police

Police officers who arrested Damian Green were wearing secret recording devices usually reserved for terror suspects, it emerged today as Scotland Yard’s investigation into the Conservative MP was further discredited.


Obamanation: A Lesson In Black Power

Being Black in the US means something. It implies an understanding of power and oppression. It implies an inclination and proclivity to side with those that resist oppression and exploitation, the Black nation having a history of acute experience with those forces.

That said, does it matter if we have sitting, the first Black chairman in the 221 years of the House’s existence, if he sits idly by and congratulates a president-elect that promises to embrace imperial foreign policy across Africa and the so-called Middle East?

Does it matter if that President-Elect’s skin happens to be Black if his office appoints an Attorney General that advocates more of a draconian domestic policy already decimating Black communities?

Does it matter if we are greeted by the first ever Black Attorney General if he wants to make possession with (cop’s discretion) intent to distribute a 5 year felony?

Does it matter, in 2008, the color of the faces of a system that is grinding into dust, the bones of Black and Brown Americans and Iraqis alike?

Hell yes, it matters so much that he is Black. But not as a justification for backslapping celebration. Obama is a tool of the ruling class and when the power of Blackness is used by the ruling class it is Black power in reverse, turned around to use as a weapon against everyone except the ruling class.


Israel Warns America Yet Again–There’s “Hell To Pay” For Not Attacking Iran

To most, the language appears all-too-familiar and not unlike the childhood story of the “boy who cried wolf”. Indeed, it has all the hallmarks of the typical fear-mongering all have come to know all-too-well in recent years featuring a paranoid Zionist military commander working for a notoriously paranoid nation and warning of the next “holocaust” if everyone does not immediately stop what they are doing, pay strict attention and follow the prescribed course of action as laid down by the Jewish state.


US Police Could Get 'Pain Beam' Weapons

The research arm of the US Department of Justice is working on two portable non-lethal weapons that inflict pain from a distance using beams of laser light or microwaves, with the intention of putting them into the hands of police to subdue suspects.


Don't they have enough with tasers and guns??

So the police come out with 'pain beam weapons and the protesters come out with mirrors and 'radio retro reflectors' ( Google it and save the info)

USA Needs Nuclear Explosion to Turn The World Into Dictatorship

Is the United States going to put dictatorship into effect under the guise of the anti-terrorist struggle? What may trigger another major transformation in 2009? The answer is obvious: another 9/11 in the USA.

Terrible and bloody events are in store for the world in the beginning of 2009. Most likely, the world will witness a reality show with a nuclear blast, which will be used as a reason for the US administration to change the world order again and leave the new Great Depression behind.


Ahmadinejad to Give Xmas Message On UK TV

Iran's President is to deliver a Christmas Day message on Britain's Channel 4 television in counterpoint to Queen Elizabeth's speech.

Following in the tradition of the channel, the public-service British television broadcaster will air an annual alternative to the Queen's Christmas speech.

Global Warming Fear-monger Selected As Puppet Obama's Top Scientific Advisor

A celebrated Harvard professor has been selected to whisper into President-elect Obama’s ear about global warming…uh, I mean global climate change, or whatever they call it these days. Professor John P. Holdren is expected to serve as Obama’s top science adviser, no doubt signaling that the Obama administration will attempt to pass a bill to tax carbon rather than fight real environmental issues.

And it takes all of two seconds to connect him to Al Gore and his global warming propaganda movie, An Inconvenient Truth, a movie that a judge in the UK prohibited from being sent to schools unless it was countered with “guidance giving the other side of the argument” due to the it’s nine factual errors.

The Harvard professor, who is smarter than you, was Gore’s adviser on the film.


How Do They Do It - I Really Want To Know

You can stop me at any point… heh heh, no you can’t but it never hurts to offer. I want to talk today about the obvious. If it’s not obvious to you then you are a Nimrod and/or a Nodwell and you probably don’t come here anyway since I don’t feature porn or get rich quick schemes. Before I get into any of this, we require, or should I say you require a little setup… a backstory… some scenery so we know where we are.


Jingle Bells And All That Stuff...

Uruknet/Layla Anwar

Ah! Another Xmas...I don't care much for Xmas or any other holiday.

For me, it's all the same...same thing, day in and day out...I go through the motions and repeat the greetings with a fake smile, but I really don't care much.

Santa can go and stuff himself as far as am concerned.

Well, he does not need to stuff himself, he is already stuffed...and so are you.

Seems you have all been under the taxidermist knife...stuffed to the brink, stuffed to your eyeballs, stuffed...stuffed with paper, cotton, rags, words...

And this Christmas you will stuff yourselves even more...with more stuff and more stuffing...

Your husbands are stuffed, your wives are stuffed, your kids are stuffed, your homes are stuffed, your shops are stuffed, your brains are are stuffed.

Tomorrow you will probably stuff something and put it in an oven, a stuffed Xmas dinner, with your stiff, stuffed families, talking through your stiff upper lips about more stuff while you are stuffing your stomachs with food stuff.

And beneath your stale breaths, you will huff and puff and say -- Stuff it, I can't wait till it's over, this is too stuffy.

Fuck that stuff.

And you will tear away at your wrapped boxes, and see more stuff, stuff you don't need or don't like, but hey it's stuff and you can't waste away stuff...So you will stuff it away, amongst the other stuff that has accumulated in your stuffed closets and cupboards till the next stuffy Xmas and you will repeat it all over again...

God's stuff is really absent, but you think you already know all that God stuff...

Meanwhile in Iraq, 5 million orphans have no stuff.

They live in streets and run down orphanages. They are sold, bought, trafficked, molested, raped, turned into sex slaves and beggars...They have no clean water to drink, no food to eat, no toys to play with, no books to read, no family to hug, no clothes and no shoes to wear, no blankets to cover them, no stuffed Santa to visit them, no electricity and no illuminated Xmas tree...

5 million Iraqi children turned into orphans because you believed stuff you were told and you acted upon that stuff...

5 million Iraqi orphans are your guarantee that you will have unlimited access to more stuff so you can stuff yourselves even more...And here they are...5 million of them, in 5 years...For them Xmas or no Xmas, it does not make a difference.

For them, it's the same thing, day in and day out...

They are of your own doing. They are the children, the little ones, you turned into diposable stuff...

So stuff them and stuff it and have a Merry stuffed Xmas.

Oh Come All Ye Faithful - Let's Crush Gaza, Starve Their Little Ones

Who is holding the governments of Britain, the EU and the US to account this Christmas for aiding and abetting the deliberate starving of 1.5 million in Gaza?

Hardly anybody. Most of those in a position to do so are Friends of Israel.

What of our foreign secretary, Ed Miliband, our very Christian prime minister Brown and our even more pious peace envoy Mr Blair…. have they done anything at all to insist that Israel’s blockade is ended?

The 'Zionist Tendency’ in Whitehall still goes unchallenged.


Motorists Face Fines and Three Points on Licence For Minor Accidents

Thousands of drivers who would have escaped prosecution for collisions after simply swapping insurance details will now face likely prosecution as soon as the police become involved.

An array of trivial motoring offences in addition to minor crashes are also likely to lead to action under proposals to give police powers to issue fixed penalty notices for careless driving.

They could include eating, drinking or smoking at the wheel, reading a map, tuning a radio or arguing with a passenger.

All funds raised from the on-the-spot fines will go directly to the Treasury, which already makes more than £100 million a year from speed cameras.


Bare in mind that the government are also out to ban you using massive increases in speeding penalties of 6 points a hit!

300 Victims of Abuse to Sue Councils For Neglect

Hundreds of children who suffered neglect or abuse at the hands of their parents have been given the green light to sue councils for damages that could total millions of pounds.

Between 200 and 300 cases where councils failed to take children promptly into care are being prepared after a landmark legal ruling, The Times has learnt. The delays in removing children stretch from weeks and months to years in some cases.

This month the Court of Appeal upheld a ruling that Doncaster council must pay compensation to a man who suffered 12 years of abuse by his parents.

The case established for the first time that local authorities are liable for abuse suffered by children if they fail to remove them from harm. The ruling could force hundreds of councils to settle similar claims.


This now gives Carte Blanche to councils to steal your children. Problem Reaction Solution

Clinton Plans A More Powerful State Department

Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to build a more muscular US State Department, with a bigger budget, high-profile special envoys dispatched to trouble spots and an expanded role in dealing with the global economic crisis, the New York Times reported Tuesday.


Herding Humans For Profit

Basically, the Pentagon and the CIA are working in tandem to force targeted nations like India and Pakistan to accept the decision which has been made to “outsource” the terror war to them and other patsy nations like them. Agency contract hits like the Mumbai attack and bombings in FATA are blamed on “al Qaida” by the government-controlled media in the West and in the media controlled by the “patsy” foreign governments.

Biased, hate-based reporting serves to drive patriotic fervor to a frenzied state. The duplicitous leaders in those countries then carry-out America’s will, to set them upon a path to war, in effect, driving their own people into a “kill trap” where unwanted war is forced upon them. This pattern prevails all over the earth, wherever the US has imperial designs. We are all being herded into a global war trap, some call it world war III.


The Federal Reserve Bank Is The Reason For America's Downfall

The American Revolution was an extraordinary event. The idea that freedom was an inherent right, that tyranny could be successfully opposed, that government could serve the people, not the few, was truly revolutionary in 1776—as it is today.

The American Revolution, however, has run its course; and unless resuscitated and given new life, the American dream and the dreams of America 's founding fathers will soon be only a memory. Dreams rarely come to pass and those that do rarely last. The American dream is no exception.

KBR Knowingly Exposed Troops to Toxic Dust

A CBS News investigation has obtained evidence that a subsidiary of Halliburton, the giant energy company formerly headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, knowingly exposed United States soldiers to toxic materials in Iraq.

CBS interviewed Commander James Gentry of the Indiana National Guard, who is dying of a rare form of lung cancer that he believes is the result of "months of inhaling hexavalent chromium" after his battalion was assigned in April 2003 to protect contractors from Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) working in Iraq at a local water plant. Other members of his unit are also suffering from cancers or rashes associated with the toxic chemical, which was all over the plant.


ADL Calls Madoff Critics Anti-Semites

Trageting the internet in their censorship of free speech, the Jewish organization known as the Anti Defamation League (ADL), has as its latest campaign against ‘Anti Semitism,’ the Bernard Madoff 50 billion dollar swindle. Once again, in its fear of open-discussion regarding Jewish actions & events, the ADL is resorting to labeling as ‘Anti Semitic’ any valid criticisms of Madoff and his multi-billion dollar fraud.


Scientists Create World's Thinnest Material

Researchers have created the world’s thinnest sheet - a single atom thick - and used it to create the world’s smallest transistor, marking a breakthrough that could spark the development of super-fast computer chips.

This innovation will allow ultra small electronics to take over when the current silicon-based technology runs out of steam, according to Prof Andre Geim and Dr Kostya Novoselov from the University of Manchester.

They reveal details of transistors that are only one atom thick and fewer than 50 atoms wide in the journal, Nature Materials.

Police Banned From Climbing a 3ft Ladder Without Training

Police officers have been forced to attend a health and safety seminar to learn how to climb a ladder.
The officers had been installing roadside electronic speed indicators for months, using a 3ft ladder, without injury or incident.
But when health and safety officials learnt of the scheme they ordered the special training.

Doing the Hokey Cokey 'Could be Hate Crime'

The Hokey Cokey is an old novelty song that has been sung in music halls, at children's parties and at sherry-fuelled family gatherings for many years.

But according to the Catholic Church and some Scottish politicians, singing the popular tune that begins with the words "You put your right hand in, your right hand out," may constitute an act of religious hatred.

A spokesman for the leader of the church in Scotland said the song had disturbing origins.
Critics claim that Puritans composed the song in the 18th century in an attempt to mock the actions and language of priests leading the Latin mass.

Now politicians have urged police to arrest anyone using the song to "taunt" Catholics under legislation designed to prevent incitement to religious hatred.


You just couldn't make it up!!!

"Please Give Me An ID Card" Say UK Citizens

More than 1,000 messages asking for ID cards have flooded into the Home Office.
Over the last two years, 1,142 out of 3,073 pieces of correspondence to government on the biometric cards have been classified as "wants an ID card", according to Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.

Smith revealed the figures in a recent parliamentary written answer where she added that the cards appear to be growing in popularity.

"From October 2007 to September 2008, the number one theme every month, accounting for by far the most common subject matter, has been 'wants an ID card'," she said.


Notice the use of the term "flooded". She also failed to mention that 1,141 of the 1,142 desperate pleas for an ID card came from her serial letter writing husband and the other one from her dog!!

What utter Bullshit and blatent propoganda!!

Repossession Threat Even If You Pay Your Mortgage

Homeowners who have not missed a single mortgage payment could still be threatened with repossession by lenders who use an emergency clause to demand that the entire loan is repaid at short notice.

Peter and Marian Addyman, who live in St Leonards, East Sussex, received a letter this month from NatWest – part of the Royal Bank of Scotland, which is majority-owned by the Government – insisting that they repay a £226,000 mortgage within 30 days or face repossession.

The couple, who have never failed to make a mortgage repayment, bought their new-build five-bedroom property for £250,000 in 2004. When their initial mortgage deal expired at the beginning of the year, they took out an interest-only tracker loan at 0.04 per cent above the Bank of England base rate.

Their local MP, Michael Foster, who has twice written to the bank to request an explanation, said of the mortgage: “The bank are obviously not making any money out of it but they agreed it.”


The Real Lessons Of History For Our Current Crises

A great deal of nonsense is being spoken and written these days about learning the lessons of history in order to solve our current problems. Much of it has been targeted at President-elect Barack Obama, as if he were a reincarnation of Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, or John F. Kennedy and can use the precedents of these great presidents as a model for our present political situation.

It's interesting that none of these so-called history pundits has suggested that the actions of these former presidents could serve us in solving our historic and current economic challenge: getting rid of the international money cabal. In other words, these counterfeit history experts are as phony as our current economic experts.

How the CIA and Military Control the Music Industry

When everything else in the world seems to be upside down, at least we can find our comfort in rock music, by listening to our old heroes, who truly know what the world is about and how to rebel against it.

At least this is what we are led to believe.


The Gods of D.C. Mean To Rule You By Brute Force

Not too long ago, I said in a column that if the states of the Union do not stand up to the federal machine they are going to find themselves little more than occupied territories before the next year is gone. For years I have beat the drum to get states to reconstitute the constitutional militia because our very freedom depends on it. The proper role of our military is not to be used against we the people, but to protect and defend against foreign and domestic enemies of this republic.

Iran: BBC Reporters In Tehran Are Spies

A top Iranian official said Monday that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) operations in Iran were nothing but a cover for the UK's espionage efforts in the Islamic Republic.
"The Iranian Intelligence has recently learned that the BBC was not in Iran to report the news, but to operate an espionage ring sanctioned by the British Embassy," Muhammad Karim Abadi, of the Iranian Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Policy, was quoted by several Iranian publications as saying.


Obama v. Richard Falk on Israel and Occupied Palestine

Obama leaves no ambiguity where he stands. From public statements, campaign pledges, policy advisors, and war cabinet selections, his positions affirm:

-- one-sided pro-Israeli zealotry;

-- continued Palestinian oppression;

-- no end to the Iraq war and occupation;

-- possibly attacking Iran and/or allying with Israel to do it;

-- pursuing an imperial agenda; targeting Pakistan, Russia and other countries;

-- expanding the size of the military; increasing expenditures for it; and-- providing Israel annually with billions of dollars; the latest weapons and technology; the same zero interest rate loans Wall Street gets; liberal debt forgiveness; virtually anything Israel requests on the pretext of security, to wage aggressive war, or expand its illegal settlements; and

-- acquiescing and remaining silent after Israel insulted a high UN official by harassing and detaining him, then expelling him from the country.

Last March, Richard Falk replaced John Dugard as the UN Human Rights Council's (UNHRC) Special Rapporteur on Occupied Palestine. UNHRC is mandated:

-- to promote and protect human rights globally;

-- detect and speak out objectively against violations and violators;

-- "provide a forum for identifying, highlighting and developing responses to today's human rights challenges,

-- act as the principal focal point of human rights research, education, public information, and advocacy activities in the United Nations system," and

-- respect the rights of everyone irrespective of nationality, ethnicity, race, gender, language, age, or religion "as stipulated in the United Nations Charter.

"Navanethem Pillay became Human Rights High Commissioner last July. Richard Falk has regional responsibility for Occupied Palestine. On December 14, he arrived at Ben Gurion airport, Tel Aviv to perform his assigned duties. He led a three-person mission that intended to visit the West Bank and Gaza, assess conditions on the ground, then report on Israel's compliance with human rights standards and international humanitarian law.

Israel was informed of his trip, his itinerary, individuals he planned to meet with, and issued visas for himself, a staff security person, and an assistant. Falk had no reason to expect interference, and as he put it: "I would not have made the long journey from California, where I live, had I not been reasonably optimistic about my chances of getting in." Nonetheless, he was denied entry and harassed as follows:


Robots Ready to Run The World

The gap between humans and robots is forecast to become significantly smaller as researchers announced that human’s social and physical reliance on robotic machines looks set to soar.Whilst it has previously been considered it will take a long time for robots to match humans and human-controlled technology, it seems the moment is now imminent. As the International Federation of Robotics has stated, the next three years will see a phenomenal rise in the use of robots.


Cheney: Congress Wholeheartedly Supported Warrantless Wiretapping Program

In an interview with Fox News’s Chris Wallace yesterday morning, Vice President Cheney defended the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program, and claimed that the congressional leaders briefed on the program wholeheartedly approved. In fact, Cheney claimed, when the White House asked if it needed congressional approval for the program, they unanimously agreed it didn't.

Creating A Nation Of Zombies

Tasers Are An Outrage We Must Resist

Daniel Sylvester can't forget the night the police fired 50,000 volts of electricity into his skull. The 46-year-old grandfather owns his own security business, and he was recently walking down the street when a police van screeched up to him.

He didn't know what they wanted, but obeyed when they told him to approach slowly. "I then had this incredible jolt of pain on the back of my head," he explains. The electricity made him spasm; as he fell to the ground, he felt his teeth scatter on the tarmac and his bowels open.

"Then they shot me again in the head. I can't describe the pain." (Another victim says it is "like someone reached into my body to rip my muscles apart with a fork.")

The police then saw he was not the person they were looking for, said he was free to go, and drove off.


'Sex Chip' Being Developed By Scientists

The chip works by sending tiny shocks from implanted electrodes in the brain.
The technology has been used in the United States to treat Parkinson's disease.
But in recent months scientists have been focusing on the area of the brain just behind the eyes known as the orbitofrontal cortex - this is associated with feelings of pleasure derived from eating and sex.


Mugabe Unleashes Wave of Terror With Mass Abductions

Fears are mounting in Zimbabwe for the lives of more than 40 opposition officials and human rights activists who have been abducted as part of a renewed crackdown by the regime in Harare. At least two more members of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change have disappeared in the past week, along with a freelance investigative reporter.


Obama And Foreign Policy

To all Democrats who knew that I was right about Hillary Clinton's treason and murders, who courageously went against her in your party, knowing what a risk it would be to you if your support for an alternative candide should fail to win and this ruthless political operative assumed the absolute power of a Bush or Bill Clinton. You trusted Obama that he would bring you something different. You trusted him that he would honestly fight for you if you would back him against Hillary Clinton so that the party could win and progressive rather than Banker Democrat policies could be advanced. And in return he has put the very person you worked so hard to defeat in the primaries in the top foreign policy position and all of the AIPAC and Mossad operatives in control of his new Administration, like Bush gave Rumsfeld, Perle, Kissinger and Wolfowitz the Pentagon. Now I suppose will be bowing extra-low and praying for mercy -- now that you know that Obama is in office as the only way to put China-and-Banker controlled organized crime once again in total control of the destruction of this republic and its people.

Let me tell you again -- Hillary Clinton is a murderer as well as a tool of the enslaving international Money Power -- and you Democrats, by not listening to those you knew where honest and informed, have put yourselves and the country in the bad spot we see today.

The Future Is Not Secret

For those that find what is outlined in "Stars & Stripes" to be nothing more than a variant of science-fiction; might I suggest that the world has been watching what will soon be our fate now, since 1948. That would be the Petri-dish of 'Israel' in Palestine that was created by Zionists as a run-up to what is about to finally happen here, now that the military-political-kinks have mostly been worked out.

The fact that Americans have paid almost no attention to what has happened and continues to happen in-and-to Palestine; is perfect for those that created that ongoing nightmare that exceeds all that has ever been human or civil, not-to-mention that this oppression breaks all the rules of the Geneva Conventions and the International Rules of War.

Dangerous Kabbalah Teachings Tout "Inducing Schizophrenia"

Cults, especially those in Hollywood, such as Kabbalah and Scientology, regularly operate to bilk the public out of money, via a so-called leader that employs manipulation, flattery and eventually subtle brainwashing.

They breakdown the victim’s thought process via psychobabble, sleep depravation (including bombarding them with calls that keep them up at night), chanting exercises and sometimes drugs, to make their minds more malleable.

They solicit large donations, stocks, bonds, physical property and intangible assets from cult members, who often don’t realize they are in a cult.


There Is No 'Al Qaeda' - Ex UK Foreign Secretary

"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the 'devil' only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US . . ."

---Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cooke

Facts Melted by 'Global Warming'

Last weekend, that heroically diligent US meteorologist Anthony Watts noticed that something very odd had happened to the daily updated graph on the official Nansen website that shows how much sea-ice there is in the Arctic. Without explanation, as he reported on his Watts Up With That website, half a million square kilometres of ice simply vanished overnight.

This might have brought cheer to all those, such as Al Gore and the BBC, who have been obsessively telling us that the Arctic ice will soon disappear altogether. They were dismayed enough last winter when, after reaching its lowest point in 30 years, the ice bounded back to near "normal". This winter the freeze has been even faster and greater, making the extent of the ice, according to the other main Arctic website, Crysophere Today, 500,000 sq km greater than this time last year.

How better to maintain the chosen narrative than to lose that half-million square kilometres simply by "adjusting" the graph downwards?


Key Witness in Rove Probes Killed

Mike Connell's untimely death will haunt Karl Rove and the Republican Party. As the key witness in investigations into election fraud and the firing of US attorneys, Mike Connell informed investigators that he had received death threats.
Connell's testimony threatened to lead to the indictment of Karl Rove. Key allegations in the cases that were converging on Rove were to the effect that Connell was ordered to manipulate election returns in 2004 to deliver the presidency to George W. Bush instead of John Kerry who was leading the pre-election polls.
A gifted IT expert, Connell was under investigation in the case of thousands of missing emails relevant to the probe into the politically motivated firing of US attorneys. In both cases, Karl Rove is the prime suspect.

Obama 'Moves to Exonerate Emanuel'

The US president-elect's aides will release evidence to vindicate Rahm Emanuel of any wrongdoing in the Blagojevich case, a report says.

Emanuel has been accused of being involved in Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's alleged efforts to peddle Obama's vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder for big campaign contributions or a lucrative job for himself.


Indian Parliament Passes Tough New Terror Laws

Mugabe Turns Back on Power-sharing

Robert Mugabe is to drop the pretence of power-sharing talks with the opposition in Zimbabwe and form a government without them this week. If he goes ahead, after gaining the backing of his ruling Zanu-PF party, it would end any immediate hope of outside help for the country, which is beset by a series of crises.


Labour MPs Revolt Over Brown's Plan to Charge 27% Interest on Emergency Loans to Poor

Gordon Brown and his Work and Pensions Secretary James Purnell were last night accused of behaving ‘like loan sharks’ over plans to slap punishingly high interest rates on vital loans to the poor.

In an astonishing move, rebel Labour MPs joined forces with David Cameron’s Tories to accuse the Government of penalising hundreds of thousands of families on benefits who get interest-free cash advances to cover the cost of unforeseen crises.

More than one million individual loans worth over £600million were paid out from the Government’s social fund last year to hard-up people – many of them disabled – who struggled to afford to repair a broken boiler or cope with some other domestic emergency.

However, in a provocative move, Mr Purnell wants to start charging 26.8 per cent on new loans – the sort of punitive rate found on High Street store cards and way above normal credit-card rates.

Israeli Blockade Forces Palestinians To Comb Rubbish Dumps For Food

Impoverished Palestinians on the Gaza Strip are being forced to scavenge for food on rubbish dumps to survive as Israel's economic blockade risks causing irreversible damage, according to international observers.


Speaker of the House of Commons Blocks Inquiry Into Himself

Up to 20 MPs are understood to have written to Mr Martin requesting that he authorise an investigation by The Standards and Privileges Committee into the controversial police search of Mr Green's Commons office last month.
But Mr Martin refused to sign off the inquiry, which means that it cannot go ahead.


Mother Flees Abroad With Her Son to Escape Social Workers

The 33-year-old woman fled to Ireland with her son in a bid to prevent social services taking him back into care. The British authorities maintain the boy suffered "emotional harm" while witnessing his father's violent rages against the mother and needs to be placed with a foster family.

But his mother, who has separated from the father, says social workers have never argued that she posed a danger to him and therefore have no case against her.

Devon social services are going to an Irish court in the next few weeks with an international warrant demanding the return of the child, who cannot be identified and is known as Boy L, into their care.

Patton Assassinated to Silence His Criticism of Allies

The newly unearthed diaries of a colourful assassin for the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, reveal that American spy chiefs wanted Patton dead because he was threatening to expose allied collusion with the Russians that cost American lives.

The death of General Patton in December 1945, is one of the enduring mysteries of the war era. Although he had suffered serious injuries in a car crash in Manheim, he was thought to be recovering and was on the verge of flying home.

But after a decade-long investigation, military historian Robert Wilcox claims that OSS head General "Wild Bill" Donovan ordered a highly decorated marksman called Douglas Bazata to silence Patton.


UK To Bail Out Charities?

Ministers are considering offering crisis loans to help cash-strapped charities to survive the recession.
Many have been forced to cut services and make redundancies because of a collapse in donations.
Kevin Brennan, the minister responsible for charities, confirmed this weekend that he was looking at extending the £1 billion emergency loan package for small businesses announced in Alistair Darling’s prebudget report last month. The government is also looking at giving grants to fund mergers between similar voluntary groups.


EU Plans to Impose Fish Quotas on Amateur Sea Anglers

For many sea anglers it could be the end of the line. The European Union wants to impose quotas on recreational fishermen limiting the number of fish they may catch.

The move is designed to protect endangered species such as cod, ling, pollack and shark. The EU sets tight quotas on commercial fishermen for these species – but anglers have no such restrictions.


Bailiffs Get Power to Use Force on Debtors

The government has been accused of trampling on individual liberties by proposing wide-ranging new powers for bailiffs to break into homes and to use “reasonable force” against householders who try to protect their valuables.

Under the regulations, bailiffs for private firms would for the first time be given permission to restrain or pin down householders. They would also be able to force their way into homes to seize property to pay off debts, such as unpaid credit card bills and loans.

The government, which wants to crack down on people who evade debts, says the new powers would be overseen by a robust industry watchdog. However, the laws are being criticised as the latest erosion of the rights of the householder in his own home.

“These laws strip away tried and tested protections that make a person’s home his castle, and which have stood for centuries,” said Paul Nicolson, chairman of the Zacchaeus 2000 Trust, a London-based welfare charity. “They could clearly lead to violent confrontations and undermine fundamental liberties.”


This a very important issue that must be fought!

Democracy and Freedom Losing Ground in Europe

Imagine that a Franco-German MEP, invited to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace
, plonked down in front of her an EU ‘ring of stars’ flag, insisting that she hoist it over the palace alongside the Royal Standard, and then proceeded to address her in a deliberately insulting way…

Something not dissimilar took place at a remarkable recent meeting between the heads of the groups in the European Parliament and Vaclav Klaus, the Czech head of state, in his palace in Hradcany Castle, on a hill overlooking Prague [on December 5, 2008]. The aim was to discuss how the Czechs should handle the EU’s rotating six-monthly presidency when they take over from France on January 1.

Is the Internet Going Down? Undersea Sub-cables Have Just Broken...

Breaking news: something's happening to the internet, right now. We're just not quite sure what.
Interoute, the internet networks company, reports that three of the four internet sub-cables that run from Asia to North America have been damaged.

These carry more than 75 per cent of traffic between the Middle East, Europe and America. It's hard to gather what this actually means - is it that the internet is down or (more likely) significantly slower than usual between the Middle East and America? (If you're reading this, let's face it, the internet has not shut down altogether)

But, according to the company, there is a domino effect taking place.


Police Assault 12-year-old Girl After Mistaking Her For a Prostitute

A girl's family has filed a lawsuit against Galveston police for their assault on their 12-year-old daughter after mistaking her for a prostitute.

As the girl, Dymond Milburn, walked in her front yard, three men jumped out of a van and beat her about the face and throat, one of them telling her, "You're a prostitute. You're coming with me."Police attacked Milburn despite the fact that she didn't fit the racial description of their suspects: three white prostitutes and a black drug dealer.

Three weeks after Milburn was hospitalized for her injuries, police went to her school and arrested her for assaulting an officer during the incident.


The Bill Nobody Noticed: The National DNA Databank

In April of 2008, President Bush signed into law S.1858 which allows the federal government to screen the DNA of all newborn babies in the U.S.

This was to be implemented within 6 months meaning that this collection is now being carried out. Congressman Ron Paul states that this bill is the first step towards the establishment of a national DNA database.

S.1858, known as The Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007, is justified as a "national contingency plan" in that it represents preparation for any sort of public health emergency. The bill states that the federal government should "continue to carry out, coordinate, and expand research in newborn screening" and "maintain a central clearinghouse of current information on newborn screening... ensuring that the clearinghouse is available on the Internet and is updated at least quarterly".

Sections of the bill also make it clear that DNA may be used in genetic experiments and tests.


UFO's In Earth's History
