British Police May Use Water Cannon to Control Violent Demonstrations

Scotland Yard is to review its policing of violent demonstrations after the G20 protests to see if London needs harsher, European-style methods that could include the use of water cannon.

Sir Paul Stephenson, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said that they would look at the more robust tactics used by other European police forces.

“Is this the price we pay for not having the paramilitary equipment that our colleagues would have on the Continent?”

Blair: Netanyahu Can Be a Peacemaker

Quartet emissary Tony Blair on Thursday offered a strong endorsement of Binyamin Netanyahu's capacity to achieve peace, backing the prime minister's focus on fostering West Bank economic growth and bolstering the Palestinians' security capacity.

Netanyahu "most certainly can play the role of peacemaker," Blair told The Jerusalem Post in an interview, adding that there was now "a moment of opportunity" that required both negotiation from the "top down" and improving the economy and security realities from the "bottom up."

Blair said Netanyahu recognized that making progress "is going to be a very tough challenge internally and externally. His big preoccupation is the security of Israel. He's very focused obviously on the issue of Iran."

The former British prime minister stressed that he was "completely sympathetic" to Israel's security concerns. "We also believe it is possible, consistent with that and provided the Palestinians adhere to their responsibilities, to give the Palestinians control of their own territory and a state." Netanyahu, said Blair, "understands that."

Blair also set out an unequivocal position on the need to halt Iran's path to the bomb. It was, he said, hard to judge how much time was left to stop Iran. But "we are far more likely to avoid confrontation if we are absolutely clear and plain, right from the beginning, with no ambiguity, that they cannot have a nuclear weapons capability."

The envoy was speaking to the Post the day after he met with Netanyahu, who announced that he would head a ministerial committee devoted to improving the West Bank economy and the quality of life in the Palestinian Authority. That kind of prime ministerial readiness to focus on the details was, said Blair, exactly "what I want... People have been saying to me in the last year, 'Why are you bothered about such and such a checkpoint or whether there's a bit of agri-industrial thing round Jericho? And I say, 'Because it matters. The detail on the ground really matters."

If, for instance, the conditions were created to truly exploit Jericho's tourism potential, he elaborated, then the Palestinians there, whose lives were directly improved, would be more willing to support the "difficult concessions" that a viable peace accord would necessitate.

Blair said the Annapolis process, and the negotiations between former prime minister Ehud Olmert and PA President Mahmoud Abbas, "did get further than people think." But Annapolis had failed to achieve the intended agreement, because it was a mistake to "put all your eggs in the top-down basket."

"States are not about maps," he declared. "States are about institutions. They're about governing capacity. They're about what actually happens within that defined territory. You can have a map with a border that isn't what I would recognize as a state in any functioning sense. That's my reason why I don't think [Annapolis] worked in the end."

Nonetheless, in an improved climate, he said, the current key players - Netanyahu and his coalition, and Abbas and PA Prime Minister Salaam Fayad - could bridge their ideological divides.

"You'd be nuts if you were naively optimistic after all we've been through over the years. But I do think this is a moment of opportunity... a moment of truth," he said. "There is an opportunity now, after many months of semi-paralysis."

The world was changing, he explained, and the Middle East was facing the choice of modernizing or, amid Iran's growing influence, staying in the past. If Israel and the Palestinians could live together in peace "in this small bit of territory... they could make it into a highly successful and vibrant part of the world."

And the way Israel had created and built itself over the past six decades, he added, "is not a bad model."

He said the Palestinian leadership was ready to push ahead, and that Hamas would be left behind if it did not "get on board with a two-state solution. "There is a whole set of proposals now on the rule of law for the Palestinians, supported by various parts of the donor community, for things like courts and prisons and the judiciary and the prosecution service and so on, along with further training with [US] General Dayton of the [PA] security forces."

As for Netanyahu's refusal to endorse Palestinian statehood, and the PA's refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, Blair said such differences were "resolvable... if everything is moving forward."

He also said Israel had to be "sensitive to how seriously people take the issue" of settlements.

"If you're to negotiate the parameters of statehood in the end, you don't want, on either side, for there to be a situation where the facts on the ground just make it impossible," he said. "This will be something to be discussed over the next few weeks and it's probably not sensible to get into all the details, but I personally believe that, again, there are ways around this issue... I don't think it's gone so far that we cannot still have a Palestinian state."

Military Police Document Reveals Integration with Local Law Enforcement

In short, the document explains how the U.S. military, in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, has “integrated” with local law enforcement under the rubric of the GWOT, or so-called Global War on Terrorism. It stresses the need for military police to collect “information that identifies trends, patterns and associations that indicate a possible nexus disrupting or targeting Army operations” within the United States. The “criminal intelligence produced from this analysis should be focused on future coordination” with local law enforcement, again a direct violation of Posse Comitatus.


Leaked 1955 Bilderberg Docs Outline Plan For Single European Currency

Leaked documents from the 1955 Bilderberg Group conference held in Germany discuss the agenda to create a European Union and a single EU currency, decades before they were introduced, disproving once again debunkers who claim that Bilderberg has no influence over world events

Leaked papers from the meeting which took place from September 23-25 1955 at the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany, were released by the Wikileaks website yesterday.

As we first reported in 2003, a BBC investigative team were allowed to access Bilderberg files which confirmed that the EU and the Euro were the brainchild of Bilderberg. They were probably reading from the same documents that were released by Wikileaks.

It was only last month that Belgian viscount and current Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon bragged that Bilderberg helped create the Euro by first introducing the policy agenda for a single currency in the early 1990’s.

However, the documents show that the agenda to create a European common market and a single currency go back decades earlier.

The summary report of the 1955 meeting talks of the “Pressing need to bring the German people, together with the other peoples of Europe, into a common market.”

The document also outlines the plan, “To arrive in the shortest possible time at the highest degree of integration, beginning with a common European market."


Media Censoring Lethal Side Effects Of Flu Remedies

Donald Rumsfeld’s Tamiflu pushers (just as they were in 2006) are set to be the big winners in the GSFS (great swine flu scare of 2009) lottery. Shares of Swiss drug-maker Roche Holding had fallen sharply after their latest cancer drug failure—but the GSFS came just in time to give their falling stocks a boost—just as the great bird flu scare of 2006 did.

In November 2005, George W. Bush goaded Congress to pass $7.1 billion in “emergency funding” to prepare for the possible bird flu pandemic, of which $1 billion was solely dedicated to the purchase and distribution of Tamiflu.

Bush said a minimum of 200,000 Americans were going to die from the avian flu pandemic. Hyping up the hysteria, he claimed if Congress didn’t finance his convoluted pandemic influenza plan, stockpiling 80 million doses of Tamiflu at $100 per dose ($8 billion)— two million Americans would die from the bird flu. American Free Press warned readers that this was another scam, just like the swine flu scare of 1976.
Tamiflu was a lackluster bust until Bush’s bird flu scare.

Now the World Health Organization (WHO)—courtesy of ever-suffering U.S. taxpayers—wants to “save” billions of people by spending billions of dollars for: 1.) Roche’s flu drug Tamiflu; and 2.) a rush to concoct a vaccine for a virus they claim is a mystery to science. The leading contender to get that juicy vaccine contract is Baxter—the same company that almost unleashed a deadly pandemic on the world less than six months before the GSFS.


2 Billion Infected? WHO Stokes Swine Flu Fear

The World Health Organization may have inadvertently triggered a new wave of fear over the threat of a swine flu pandemic today by suggesting that up to 2 billion people could be infected if the current outbreak worsens.

"If the situation continues to evolve and the virus does become established in other countries, and we do move into a pandemic, we would expect the virus to infect many people," said WHO chief Keiji Fukuda at a press conference today. "Perhaps a third of the world's population could be infected with this virus, based on previous pandemic."


Israeli Military Deeply Acive in Tamil Tigers Massacre

The current offensive by the Sri Lankan government against thr Tamil Tiger or Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) rebel movement has trapped tens of thousands of refugees in a coastal strip still held by the rebels.

Sri Lanka’s military has been accused by human rights organizations of using massive firepower against the guerrillas that is resulting in civilian casualties. The comparison between Israel’s brutal attack on the Gaza Strip and its killing of over 1,000 civilians and the wounding of many thousands of others and the Sri Lankan assault on a three-mile long coastal strip controlled by the Tamil Tigers have been made by a number of observers, including Australia’s Green-Left Online in a May 2 article by Sean O Floinn & Emma Clancy: “A largely defenseless people struggling to survive and hemmed in on a narrow strip of land, facing indiscriminate air strikes, assault from gun boats and cluster bombs by a well-equipped army, conjures up the image of the recent Israeli invasion of Palestine’s Gaza Strip.”

However, there is more to the comparisons between Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip and Sri Lanka’s attack on the narrow strip of the Jaffna peninsula. In May 2000, a day after India refused to give Sri Lanka any military assistance in its war against the Tamil Tigers, Sri Lanka and Israel resumed diplomatic relations. Although the corporate media are focusing on Sri Lanka’s military assistance from China, little mention is being made of the island nation’s military links with Israel.

After the establishment of diplomatic ties between Jerusalem and Colombo, Israeli military technicians arrived to maintain Sri Lanka’s Israeli-made Kfir fighter-bombers and Russian MiG-27 aircraft and provided Sri Lanka with Dvora fast naval attack craft. Israeli arms and ammunition also began flooding into Sri Lanka.

Soon, Israeli military advisers and “consultants” were regular visitors to Colombo’s new Access Lanka Building, owned by relatives of Sri Lanka’s top military officers. Among Israel’s security exports to Sri Lanka was state-of-the-art electronic and imagery surveillance equipment. Israeli Air Force pilots reportedly flew Sri Lankan attack aircraft against Tamil Tiger targets on the Jaffna peninsula. Israeli military personnel were also reported to have taken part in Sri Lankan military attacks on Tamil units.

Due to Israel’s military assistance to Sri Lanka, Palestinians reportedly began aiding the Tamils in the 1980s. It is also believed that Israel’s Mossad recruited agents among Sri Lanka’s large contingent of foreign workers in the Persian Gulf Arab states. There were also reports that Israelis were also providing weapons and training to Tamil guerrillas in order to maintain a “market” for Israeli arms suppliers in the civil war-wracked island nation.


Smith's DNA Database by Stealth

It is perhaps ironic that the home secretary should seem so hellbent on collecting the nation's DNA while still reeling from the embarrassment of her husband's presumed attempts to spill his at the taxpayer's expense.

If it is irony then it is doubly so, as Smith is the minister charged with upholding the rule of law yet has such utter contempt for it and its principles. The EU court ruling stated very clearly that the DNA profiles and samples of the 850,000 innocent people currently on the database should be removed.

Smith's response is to leave them on the DNA database for between six and 12 years. At best this is a childish kind of belligerent foot-dragging and at worst it is plain illegal. What is certain is that campaigners will challenge this, and once again Smith will be hauled into court.


'InfoWarrior' Jason Bermas: Jew Critics Are 'Anti-Semites' Who Should Hang Or Electrocute Themselves

Netanyahu: Israel will Never Withdraw From Golan

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a group of Russian-language reporters Thursday that Israel will never withdraw from the Golan Heights.

"Remaining on the Golan will ensure Israel has a strategic advantage in cases of military conflict with Syria," Netanyahu said during a briefing he gave to the reporters.


Next Step? No Guns Allowed for Right-wing 'Extremists'

A new gun law being considered in Congress, if aligned with Department of Homeland Security memos labeling everyday Americans as potential "threats," could potentially deny firearms to pro-lifers, gun-rights advocates, tax protesters, animal rights activists, and a host of others – any already on the expansive DHS watch list for potential "extremism."


'Gay' Day Coming to California Public Schools?

A California committee passed a bill proclaiming that the state's public school children will take a break from learning every year to celebrate Harvey Milk – a homosexual icon considered by some to be "a martyr for gay rights."

The California State Senate Education Committee passed SB 572 today on a 7-2 vote. The bill encourages all California public schools to "conduct suitable commemorative exercises … remembering the life of Harvey Milk and recognizing his accomplishments as well as the contributions he made to this state."

It requires no parental consent for student participation.


In the Name of Venality

It can fairly be said that the chain of catastrophic bets made over the past decade by a few hundred bankers may well turn out to be the greatest nonviolent crime against humanity in history. They’ve brought the world’s economy to its knees, lost tens of millions of people their jobs and their homes, and trashed the retirement plans of a generation, and they could drive an estimated 200 million people worldwide into dire poverty. In other words, never before have so few done so much to so many. And has there been even one major, voluntary resignation by an American financial executive? One sincere apology? One jail sentence? Why the American public hasn’t taken to the streets in revolt is a mystery that can be linked only to our inherent belief in the virtues of capitalism.


Israeli ' Death to Arabs' Facebook Group

The messages posted on the group’s homepage are calling for the killing of Arabs and Leftists. There is a debate amongst the group members, on whether all Arabs should be killed, or only some, while the rest should be deported. The photos uploaded to the group show the late racist Rabbi Meir Kahana and a small Meretz demonstration.

The important thing here is not that there are some several hundred racists in Israel, who wish to see the Arabs gone. We always had those - Kahana followers, transfer supporters, etc. The thing is that these people are not just scribbling graffiti in the dark anymore. They are registered to a public group, with their name and their picture, where all their friends can see them (for those of you who don’t use Facebook – when someone joins a group on the site, all his friends get notified. In this case, they will all see some sort of statues line, declaring that “X has joined the group ‘Death to Arabs’”). The people on this group don’t think that they need to hide. They don’t think that there is anything wrong with racism, hate-talk or incitement. In fact, they are rather proud of it.

The group looks as though it is five months old. It currently has 2,165 members. It seems that most of them are minors – your normal Israeli teens. Soon they will join the army.

A Giant US Military Base Emerges in Afghanistan

In the forbidding Afghan desert, US engineers are carving out a sprawling military camp as part of a dramatic American troop build-up designed to confront Taliban insurgents.

The desolate plain in southern Helmand province that Afghans call the "desert of death" has turned into a hive of frenetic activity, underscoring President Barack Obama's decision to expand the US military commitment to the war.


Patent for Killer Chip Denied in Germany

A Saudi inventor's proposal to insert semiconductors subcutaneously in visitors and remotely kill them if they misbehave will not be patented in Germany.

On Wednesday, a German Patent Office spokeswoman said the application was received on October 30, 2007 and published 18 months later, as required by law, in a patents database. But inventions that are unethical or a danger to the public are not recognized.

Reporters said the document proposed that tiny semiconductors be implanted or placed by injection under the skin of people so their whereabouts could be tracked by global-positioning satellites. This could be used to prevent immigrants overstaying.

A model B of the system would contain a poison such as cyanide, which could be released by remote control to "eliminate" people if they became a security risk. The document said this could be used against terrorists or criminals.

Microchip implantation in humans has raised new ethical discussions by scientific professional forums, academic groups, human rights organizations, government departments and religious groups.

The Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs (CEJA) of the American Medical Association published a report in 2007 alleging that RFID implanted chips may compromise privacy because there is no assurance that the information contained in the chip can be properly protected, notwithstanding health risks (chips can travel under the skin).

UK Government Wants The Military To Run State Schools

The Armed Forces will be drafted in to run state schools under plans to drive up discipline and respect in classrooms.

Ministers are in talks with defence chiefs about taking over a handful of schools and turning them into military academies.
Alongside daily lessons, pupils would be expected to take part in activities such as drills, uniformed parades, weapons handling and adventure training.

The first state schools set to gain 'military academy' status are understood to be based in Portsmouth and Colchester.
The controversial scheme will initially be in areas where there are a large number of military families, but is set to be rolled out across the country.

Record One in Five Pupils Has Special Educational Needs

A record one in five children is classified as having special educational needs at school, official figures revealed yesterday.

The numbers have nearly doubled over the past 20 years to 1.65million as pupils are increasingly labelled as having behavioural or speech difficulties.

The trend has triggered warnings that a growing culture of entertaining children with TVs and computer games and a lack of boundaries at home or family troubles are increasingly manifesting themselves in class as disruptive behaviour.

However, sceptics said the increase was fuelled by a growing tendency to label anti-social traits as medical conditions to excuse poor behaviour or academic underachievement.


Undesirable? I'd Swap Jackboot Jacqui For a Shock Jock Any Day...

Apart from lying about where she lives for the purposes of fiddling her expenses, it was revealed yesterday that Jackboot Jacqui has been telling the tax authorities a different story altogether.
She maintains that her family house in Redditch is her second home, so she can claim tens of thousands of pounds in parliamentary allowances to which she is not entitled.
But she also registers the Redditch property as her principal residence with her local council, which means she won't have to pay capital gains tax when she comes to sell it.
Meanwhile, she pretends to the Commons fees office that her sister's spare bedroom in South London is her 'main' residence.
And that allows her famously to charge 'second home' expenses for Redditch - up to and including the kitchen sink, a patio heater and her husband's pornographic movies.
This isn't just an abuse of the system, it's wholesale theft and criminal deception. In any other line of work she'd be helping the Fraud Squad with their inquiries.
Hardly surprising, then, that No10 was putting it about this week that she's going to be sacked as Home Secretary in a few weeks' time, as Gordon seeks scapegoats for his selfinflicted meltdown.
To add to her woes, she is certain to be ejected from her ultra-marginal seat at the next General Election.
That wouldn't just see her lose her salary and the bent expenses which go with the job, it would also mean the end of the £40,000 a year she pays her husband out of public funds to
All in all, the future's pretty bleak for old Jackboots. With her record of dishonesty, what sensible employer would want to take her on? Perhaps she is hoping for a lucrative directorship from one of the
firms bidding to run the £20 billion national ID cards scheme.
Why else would she be forging ahead with this ludicrously expensive project, in the teeth of all logic? You'd think
she'd have more pressing problems to deal with. But, as if that wasn't enough, she's also forcing through another monstrous affront to civil liberties by grinding
on with the establishment of a sinister DNA database, which will store intimate profiles of hundreds of thousands of people who have never been convicted of any offence.
This not only runs counter to our centuries-old presumption of innocence, but also flies in the face of Labour's beloved European Court of Yuman Rites, which has ruled the plan illegal.
And Jackboots still found time this week to issue a list of 'undesirables' who will be excluded from Britain.
They include a couple of violent skinheads, currently serving a ten-year prison sentence in Russia, and an obscure American shock jock, who says that not only has he no intention of visiting Britain, he now intends to sue Jackboots for defamation.
WHAT on earth was she doing trawling the jails of Eastern Europe and the airwaves of America for people to exclude from Britain? Why single out this motley crew - and why now?
All this manic activity from a woman who should be lucky to get a job selling the Big Issue in Redditch High Street this time next year.
Maybe she entertains the vain hope that if she does as much damage as possible now, she'll be rewarded with a seat in the Lords later, which would allow her to carry on with her lavish, larcenous lifestyle.

If there was any justice, she'd be banged up in Holloway and spend the rest of her life on her own ghastly DNA database. Pity we can't exclude her from Britain.

Fury as Harriet Harman Claims Opponents of DNA Database are 'Against Justice'

Harriet Harman provoked outrage yesterday by accusing opponents of the Government's DNA database policy of 'putting themselves against justice'.
Labour's deputy leader waded into the database row following the announcement this week of Government plans that innocent people will have to wait up to 12 years before their DNA is erased.

In the Commons yesterday, Lib-Dem spokesman David Heath accused ministers of showing an 'inability to understand what the word innocent means'.
And Shadow Commons Leader Alan Duncan claimed the Government had 'little regard for civil liberty and justice'.

Miss Harman countered: 'I would say quite the opposite - this is us having regard for justice.'


'You're either with us or your with the Terrorists'

Afghans Riot Over Air-strike Atrocity

Shouting "Death to America" and "Death to the Government", thousands of Afghan villagers hurled stones at police yesterday as they vented their fury at American air strikes that local officials claim killed 147 civilians.

The riot started when people from three villages struck by US bombers in the early hours of Tuesday, brought 15 newly-discovered bodies in a truck to the house of the provincial governor. As the crowd pressed forward in Farah, police opened fire, wounding four protesters. Traders in the rest of Farah city, the capital of the province of the same name where the bombing took place, closed their shops, vowing they would not reopen them until there is an investigation.

Harvard Medical School Professors are Paid Big Bucks by Big Pharma to Push Meds

Pressure is building on Harvard Medical School to better regulate the massive gifts and consulting fees that faculty members regularly receive from drug companies, with increasing attention being drawn to the great potential for conflict of interest in such relationships.

"Before coming here, I had no idea how much influence companies had on medical education," said first-year medical student David Tian. "And it's something that's purposely meant to be under the table, providing information under the guise of education when that information is also presented for marketing purposes."

A student movement has recently taken form at Harvard Medical School, demanding widespread reform of the school's conflict-of-interest policies. The movement was sparked by a number of high-profile scandals in which Harvard medical faculty were revealed to have concealed hundreds of thousands of dollars in pharmaceutical company gifts, sparking a Senate investigation. This was followed by the American Medical Student Association giving the school an F grade for its conflict-of-interest disclosure policies.


FDA Floats Hydroxycut Scare to Discredit Yet Another Supplement Company

After tens of millions of doses of Hydroxycut were taken by consumers, one person died. This, along with reports of a few dozen liver-related side effects, caused the FDA to push for an industry-wide recall of virtually all Hydroxycut products. The thinking behind the warning? The risk of side effects is very low, but the FDA doesn't believe consumers should be exposed to such risks.

Not from a dietary supplement, anyway. When it's from a vaccine or a pharmaceutical, such risks are deemed "acceptable" by the FDA. Remember the outcry over the COX-2 inhibitor drug Vioxx and the testimony by Dr. David Graham of the FDA who calculated the drug killed over 60,000 Americans? That drug was voted "safe" by an FDA panel even after its own manufacturer voluntarily recalled it from the market!

When it comes to pharmaceuticals, you see, killing 60,000 Americans is no big deal. But when a dietary supplement is linked to a single death, that's more than enough for the FDA to spring into action with its spin machine to destroy the credibility of the dietary supplement in question.

The same thing happened with ephedra (ma huang), a perfectly safe Traditional Chinese Medicine that's been safely used for over 5,000 years in China. It's an important ingredient in all sorts of Chinese Medicine formulas, including anti-viral formulas that cave save lives during a pandemic. But thanks to the FDA, ephedra is now illegal to sell or prescribe in the United States, and anyone prescribing it to patients can be arrested and threatened with being shut down and put out of business.

EU urges Obama to Support Terror Cult

After removing an anti-Iranian terror group from their blacklist, European Union lawmakers are now urging President Barack Obama to follow suit.

More than 100 members of the European Parliament have tried to persuade the US president to lift an American ban on the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), AFP reported on Thursday.

The MKO, which identifies itself as a Marxist-Islamist guerilla army, was founded in Iran in the 1960s but was exiled some twenty years later for carrying out numerous acts of terrorism inside the country.


Criminalizing Criticism of Israel

On October 16, 2004, President George W. Bush signed the Israel Lobby’s bill, the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act. This legislation requires the US Department of State to monitor anti-semitism world wide.

To monitor anti-semitism, it has to be defined. What is the definition? Basically, as defined by the Israel Lobby and Abe Foxman, it boils down to any criticism of Israel or Jews.

Rahm Israel Emanuel hasn’t been mopping floors at the White House.
As soon as he gets the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 passed, it will become a crime for any American to tell the truth about Israel’s treatment of Palestinians and theft of their lands.

It will be a crime for Christians to acknowledge the New Testament’s account of Jews demanding the crucifixion of Jesus.

It will be a crime to report the extraordinary influence of the Israel Lobby on the White House and Congress, such as the AIPAC-written resolutions praising Israel for its war crimes against the Palestinians in Gaza that were endorsed by 100 per cent of the US Senate and 99 per cent of the House of Representatives, while the rest of the world condemned Israel for its barbarity.

It will be a crime to doubt the Holocaust.

It will become a crime to note the disproportionate representation of Jews in the media, finance, and foreign policy.

In other words, it means the end of free speech, free inquiry, and the First Amendment to the Constitution. Any facts or truths that cast aspersion upon Israel will simply be banned.

Given the hubris of the US government, which leads Washington to apply US law to every country and organization, what will happen to the International Red Cross, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, and the various human rights organizations that have demanded investigations of Israel’s military assault on Gaza’s civilian population? Will they all be arrested for the hate crime of “excessive” criticism of Israel?


Cyberbullying Bill Not About Protecting Kids, It is About Shutting Down the Opposition

Arianna Huffington, the liberal darling in bed with the globalist George Soros by way of the Bermuda-based Atlantic Philanthropies, has posted an article on her website penned by Rep. Linda Sánchez, the Democrat congress critter from California. Sánchez is behind the so-called Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act, an effort to impose draconian regulations on the internet.


AIPAC 2009: US Politicians Bow to Zionist Control

ZIONIST JEWS HAVE WON THE DAY ONCE AGAIN on Zionist-occupied Capitol Hill. This total, abject domination of Washington was morbidly demonstrated in the American Israeli Affairs Committee Policy Conference (AIPAC) held in Washington DC, May 3-5, 2009. As always, many Zionist bought, bribed, and quietly threatened lowlife US politicians made their obligatory appearances to grovel and spew their Zionist-pleasing, lap dog, obsequious speeches.

Touting the usual Pro-Israel phrases ad nauseum, such as, “Our unbreakable commitment to Israel” or “Our shared values and deep ties” and certainly “A common commitment to democracy,” political hacks and Zionist whores and dupes such as Joe Biden, Sen John Kerry (D-MA), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA & Zionist Jew), all chimed in with their fawning, absolutely disgusting statements of obedience and ‘loyalty’…insuring for themselves continued campaign donations and perks from the Jewish AIPAC lobbyists and their malignant, malevolent engine of control and subjugation.


Murdoch to Charge for Newspaper Websites

Rupert ­Murdoch expects to start charging for access to News Corporation's newspaper websites within a year as he strives to fix a ­"malfunctioning" business model.

Encouraged by booming online subscription revenues at the Wall Street Journal, the billionaire media mogul last night said that papers were going through an "epochal" debate over whether to charge. "That it is possible to charge for content on the web is obvious from the Wall Street Journal's experience," he said.


Police to Severely Curtail Use of Stop and Search Powers

Police have bowed to mounting opposition and are to significantly reduce their use of controversial terrorism powers that allow them to stop and search people without reasonable suspicion, the Guardian has learned.

Stop and search is one of the most draconian powers employed by police in the war on terror and a constable's right to use it will be severely curtailed under plans unveiled today. In a document seen by the Guardian, senior officers admit that the hundreds of thousands of stops carried out under the power had damaged community relations and reversed "fundamental" principles of civil rights.


Washington Negotiator Calls on Israel to Sign Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty

A diplomatic row broke out today between the US and Israel after Washington's chief nuclear arms negotiator called on Israel to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT), breaking a US tradition of discretion over Israel's nuclear arsenal.

Israeli officials said they were puzzled by a speech to an international conference in New York by Rose Gottemoeller, an assistant secretary of state, who said: "Universal adherence to the NPT itself - including by India, Israel, Pakistan and North Korea - also remains a fundamental objective of the United States."

By including Israel on a list of countries known to have nuclear weapons. Gottemoeller broke with normal US diplomatic practice. Since 1968 when the CIA reported Israel had developed a nuclear weapon , Washington has pursued a policy of not demanding transparency from its close ally, and in return Israel agreed not to test a bomb or declare its nuclear capability - a policy of "strategic ambiguity".

Stress Tests Show 10 Big Banks Must Raise Total of $75 Billion

Three months of intense anticipation ended Thursday when the Obama administration said stress tests found that 10 of the largest U.S. banks will have to raise a total of $75 billion to prepare for losses that could come from a deepening recession.

Bank of America (BAC) will have to raise $33.9 billion; Wells Fargo (WFC), $13.7 billion; GMAC (GJM), $11.5 billion; and Citigroup (C), $5.5 billion, in the next six months. The results culminated an unprecedented process by the government to test the top 19 banks that control two-thirds of the nation's financial assets.


So another bailout is looming then!

The Great Water Heist

The Crusade Against Population

You have probably never heard of Dr. Reimert Ravenholt, but he was one of the most influential people of the 20th century. More than anyone else, Ravenholt was responsible for putting together the worldwide network of population-control programs and agencies. Appointed in 1966 to be the first director of the Office of Population in the United States Agency for International Development, Ravenholt was an arch-Malthusian who saw human fertility as a looming planetary disaster. Backed by a large supply of federal tax dollars, he zealously went about promoting contraception, sterilization, and abortion as the cure for the “plague” of too many children.

Klaus Vetoes Czech Approval of Lisbon Treaty

The Czech President Vaclav Klaus said he would not ratify the Lisbon Treaty after it was approved by the senate yesterday, raising a new obstacle to plans to reform the EU.

Mr Klaus explained that he would not sign the treaty because of its rejection by Irish voters last year and an expected court challenge in the Czech Republic.

"The Lisbon Treaty is dead for this moment," said President Klaus. "It is dead because it was rejected in a referendum in one member state. Therefore, a decision on ratification of this treaty is not on the agenda at this point."

Ireland plans to hold a new vote later this year on the EU's charter for reform. Yesterday the Czech senate voted 54-20 to ratify the treaty which is meant to simplify decision-making in a union that has grown from 15 to 27 members over the past five years. Mr Klaus and lawmakers among the ruling right-wing Civic Democrats claim that the treaty takes away sovereignty and is a step towards a European superstate.

Wrongly Accused People Could Have DNA on Database for 12 years

The DNA profiles of people released without charge or found not guilty by a court could be stored for up to 12 years on a national police database.

The proposal, announced by Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, is in response to a European court ruling that criticised the Government for keeping genetic records of innocent people.

Opponents accused ministers of defying the spirit of the court’s decision by drawing a distinction between DNA samples, which will be destroyed, and the genetic profiles they generate.

The judgment last year ruled that the indefinite storage of samples, profiles and fingerprints of everyone arrested was unlawful.


Who Will Stop the AIPAC Jews Before it is Too Late?

While I was being tackled by security guards at Washington's Convention Center during the AIPAC conference for unfurling a banner that asked "What about Gaza?," my heart was aching. I wasn't bothered so much by the burly guards who were yanking my arms behind by back and dragging me-along with 5 other CODEPINK members-out of the hall. They were doing their job.

What made my heart ache was the hatred I felt from the AIPAC staff who tore up the banner and slammed their hands across my mouth as I tried to yell out: "What about Gaza? What about the children?"

"Shut the f--- up. Shut the f--- up." one staffer yelled, red-faced and sweating as he ran beside me. "This is not the place to be saying that shit. Get the f--- out of here."

What makes my heart ache is thinking about the traumatized children I met on my recent trip to Gaza, and how their suffering is denied by the 6,000 AIPAC conventioneers who are living in a bubble-a bubble where Israel is the victim and all critics are anti-Semitic, terrorist lovers or, as in my case, self-hating Jews.

I found it fascinating that AIPAC's executive director Howard Kohr opened the conference admitting that there was now a huge, international campaign against the policies of Israel. He painted a picture of 30,000 people marching in Spain, Italian trade unionists calling for a boycott of Israeli products, the UN Human Rights Council passing 26 resolutions condemning Israel, an Israeli Apartheid Week that is building a global boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign.

Drug Company Money is Top Factor in Publication of Vaccine Studies

Flu vaccine studies that are funded by industry are significantly more likely to be published in prestigious journals and to later be cited in the scientific literature than studies without such funding, according to a survey of 274 studies conducted by researchers from the Cochrane Vaccine Field in Italy, and published in the British Medical Journal.

A good methodology, in contrast, had little impact on such factors. The study also found few studies providing good evidence that the flu vaccine is actually effective.


Ireland Stands Alone Against The EU Lisbon Treaty

Ireland now stands alone after the Czechs completed parliamentary ratification of the Lisbon Treaty this afternoon.

Czech senators removed the last substantialbarrier to the Lisbon Treaty, outside Ireland, by voting 54-20, with seven abstentions, to ratify the text derived from the old EU Constitution.

Jose Manuel Barroso, the European Commission President, was suitably jubilant.


Pakistan Threat ‘Worst Since Cuban Missile Crisis’

Loss of control in nuclear-armed Pakistan threatened the world with the worst global crisis since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, the closest the world has ever come to nuclear war, a senior former US diplomat warned on Tuesday.

The stark warning comes as US President Barack Obama meets the leaders of Pakistan and Afghanistan at the White House on Wednesday to discuss efforts to stabilise their countries in the face of Islamist insurgencies. It also comes as the international community fears a possible breakdown in the security surrounding Pakistan’s 100 warhead nuclear arsenal and their capture by religious extremists

AIG Bonuses Four Times Higher Than Last Year

The 2008 AIG bonus pool just keeps getting larger and larger.

In a response to detailed questions from Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the company has offered a third assessment of exactly how much it paid out in bonuses last year.

And the new number, offered in a document submitted to Cummings on May 1, is the highest figure the company has disclosed to date.

AIG now says it paid out more than $454 million in bonuses to its employees for work performed in 2008.

Sinister Sites - Astana, Khazakhstan

Astana is the 1st capital being built in the 21st century and it represents perfectly where the world is headed. It is truly one man’s vision: Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of Kazakhstan (yes Borat’s country, I know). Backed by billions of petrodollars, the city is being built from scratch in a remote and deserted area of the Asian steppes. The result is astonishing: a futuristic occult capital, embracing the New World Order while celebrating the most ancient religion known to man: Sun Worship. The city is still a huge construction site, but the buildings that are already completed already sum up perfectly Nazarbayev’s occult vision.

Rolling Out the Product: A New Full-Court Press for Pakistan War

We are now in the midst of a full-blown campaign to "roll out the product" for a new war: this time, in Pakistan. Anyone who lived through the run-up to the invasion of Iraq should be able to read the signs -- anyone, that is, who is not blinded by partisan labels, or by the laid-back cool of a media-savvy leader far more presentable than his predecessor.

We noted some of these signs in a long post yesterday and won't belabor them here. But today brings yet another bumper crop of panic buttons and alarm bells from the powers-that-be, with ever-increasing emphasis on the "Taliban kooks with Muslim nukes" theme: one more variation on the old "mushroom clouds rising in American cities" ploy that has worked like a charm for our militarists lo these 60 years or more.

Some of the war-pushing powers-that-be are public figures in the Obama Administration (including Obama himself, who has dutifully taken on the Bushian mantle of Fearmonger-in-Chief), and some of them are shadowy, unnamed eminences in the military-security apparat, clearly aiming to act for Obama as those daggers of the mind did for Macbeth: "Thou marshall'st me the way that I was going."


Peres to Obama: No Choice But to Compare Iran to Nazis

The world has no choice but to compare the threat posed by Iran now to that of Nazi Germany before the Second World War, President Shimon Peres told U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington on Tuesday.

"Iran is a threat not just to Israel, but to the whole world. As Jews, after being subjected to the Holocaust, we cannot close our eyes in light of the grave danger emerging from Iran," Peres said.

"If Europe had dealt seriously with Hitler at that time, the terrible Holocaust and the loss of millions of people could have been avoided. We can't help but make the comparison."


"World has no choice?" Sounds like Israel is making threats here!

How is Iran like Nazi Germany?

Iran isn't invading other countries (the way Israel keeps doing), indeed Iran hasn't invaded anyone for 200 years.

Does Iran have an ethnic minority forced to starve in a giant open air modern day "Warsaw Ghetto", like Israel does?

Israel appears to be "projecting", again.

Jacqui Smith Says ID Cards Could be Available From High Street Shops

High street chemists and photographic shops are in talks with the Government about taking photographs and fingerprints for the national identity card scheme, Jacqui Smith will announce today.

The move comes as figures show that the cost of the project has risen by more than £200 million, to more than £5.3 billion.

The Home Secretary will also announce that residents of Greater Manchester will be the first to be able to volunteer for identity cards.

The UN nuclear watchdog is investigating the discovery of traces of highly enriched uranium (HEU) -- at or near weapons grade level -- in Egypt, reports say.

According to a restricted report conducted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), UN nuclear inspectors found the traces while verifying Egypt's Non-Proliferation Treaty compliance in 2008.

Doctors Told to Detain Children in Hospital if They Suspect Abuse

Doctors should detain a child in hospital if they suspect abuse and alert key agencies, such as social services and police, according to guidance published today.

Recommendations on child protection issued by the British Medical Association — the first to focus specifically on the role of doctors — say that GPs and consultants should take immediate action when dealing with children who may be at risk.

They include keeping a child in hospital against parental wishes if it appears that injuries are not accidental and the child may be subjected to further harm. The guidelines also advise that in such cases it may be in the best interests of the child to undertake an examination without explicit parental consent.


200,000 Year Old Statue Found On Moon?

A noted scientist has just produced proof that the lunar surface was inhabited by intelligent life: a 10-inch angel sculpture embedded in a moon rock.

Geologist Dr. Morris Charles revealed last week that NASA lab workers chipped the angel from one of the rocks brought to Earth by Apollo 11 astronauts 40 years ago, in 1969. Dr. Charles was a NASA scientist himself for 23 years but left the agency in 1987. He still maintains close ties to many of his former colleagues.

An Inconvenient Film Coming Soon

Al Gore is about to feature in a new movie, but he’s not going to like it very much. Titled Not Evil Just Wrong: The True Cost of Global Warming Hysteria, the film presents a devastating account of the shaky foundations and hefty price of Mr. Gore’s brand of self-interested and hypocritical alarmism.



Here we go again. It’s Change time

We are listening to a broken record.

Whose turn is it this time to give us the phoney change mantra? Can you guess? I’ll give you some clues…

He is British

He is a Tory

He was educated at Eton and Oxford

He is a descendant of King William IV

His wife is also of aristocratic stock

He used to work in Public Relations

He comes from a family of financiers

His great great grandfather worked for the Rothschilds

(Are you looking forward to this man leading your country?)

It’s David Cameron, of course.


Self Deception

The web site of Alex Jones,, states that Google has links with the CIA.

There he goes again, the conspiracy theorist!

I looked up “Alex Jones” on Google news and found little other than links to articles written on his own site. But there were a couple of journalistic reviews of his work which caught my eye. Both of the same anti-Jones tone, they were having none of the possibility that what he claims is actually correct.

Let’s have look at one of them, authored by a Rebecca Delaney.


Shopper Asked for Proof of Age to Buy Asda Teaspoons

The shop assistant reportedly informed the customer that someone had once been murdered with a teaspoon, and therefore age identification was now required.

That the woman had also bought plates and picnic ware at the Halifax branch in West Yorkshire did not appear to reassure the shop assistant as to her innocent intentions.


GCHQ: Mastering the Media

GCHQ has been hard at work in the last two days spinning against our revelations on Sunday that it is spending more than £1bn on monitoring and analysis equipment under a secret project called Mastering the Internet.

Mastering the Internet has been underway for over a year and contracts worth hundreds of millions of pounds have been awarded, our sources confirmed. A network of remotely-configured deep packet inspection probes inside internet and phone providers will grant GCHQ complete visibility of UK internet traffic.

The folks at the concrete doughnut, apparently uncomfortable with such work becoming public knowledge, would however like you to think the resultant expansion of their power is no big deal.

Here's the substantive sentence in GCHQ's lengthy statement in response to the story: "GCHQ is not developing technology to enable the monitoring of all internet use and phone calls in Britain, or to target everyone in the UK."


Canadian Military Quell Staged Protests In Martial Law Training

The Canadian military has taken over a city for three weeks as part of an urban warfare drill that is seeing convoys of tanks rolling down streets, “hollywood” style explosions, and scenarios involving simulated terrorist attacks.

According to one report out of Medicine Hat in Alberta, Canada, the army is also using actors to pose as civilian protesters, who are described as “an environmental insurgency” involved in ” insurgent attacks against the city and military, which the Provincial Reconstruction Team needs to address.”


Schools Told to Set up 'Quarantine Rooms' for Swine Flu Pupils

Private schools should set up “quarantine rooms” for pupils suspected of having swine flu, according to legal advice issued to the Independent Schools Council today.

Pupils across the country may have to sit exams in isolation, at home, or be given grades based on past work rather than take exams this summer if the swine flu epidemic escalates. If the situation becomes extreme the Department of Health could issue an order to close all schools.


Savage Considers Legal Action Against UK Travel Ban For Political Opinions

The third most listened to radio talk show host in America, Michael Savage, outlawed from traveling to the UK by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith because of his political opinions, has vowed to take legal action to clear his name on grounds of defamation after he was included in a list of banned individuals because of his opposition to illegal immigration.


ZANU PF Ministers Knew About Tsvangirai Accident the Day Before it Happened

In a shocking revelation that might threaten the fragile power sharing deal between ZANU PF and the MDC,it has emerged that at least three ZANU PF ministers knew about the accident which injured Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and killed his wife Susan ,according to a report that was submitted to the MDC.

The details are contained in a 50 page investigation report that was carried out by a private investigation company and summited to the MDC two weeks after the accident,but the MDC has kept a tight lid on it and some members of the National Executive have not even seen it.

According to the report Defence Minister, Emmerson Mnagagwa,Transportation Minister, Nicolas Goche and Justice Minister,Patrick Chinamasa likely knew about the accident a few days before it happened.

The report also questions if President Mugabe knew about the accident beforehand as his travel arrangements to visit Avenues Hospital started being made in the morning of the day the accident occurred. Hospital Staff reportedly witnessed security agents and Mugabe’s security detail being dispatched to man the hospital in the morning.


An Endangered Species

I have written previously and with great foreboding on how government interference in people's lives is increasing at an alarming rate. In the UK this micromanaging of human affairs has over the past decade taken on a very sinister aspect, as the `social engineers` planners and managers, with their army of programmed social workers, invariably armed with a signed and sealed mandate from Brussels via Westminster, intrude into the most private and personal regions of individual liberty and privacy.

The question 'When did you stop beating your wife?' is a well known rhetorical device to illustrate the impossible situation in which whatever answer someone gives traps them into an admission of guilt.

It now appears that the British Government has updated this snare for the modern era with the question: 'When did you stop getting beaten by your husband?' Doctors and midwives are being told to ask all pregnant women if they are being abused by their husbands or boyfriends.


Gonzales says US Should be Open to Torturing Again

In an interview posted Monday, former Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said that because use of torture "may be necessary" in the future, the Obama administration erred in disclosing the Bush administration’s "enhanced interrogation" techniques.


Bayer Exposed ( HIV Contaminated Vaccine )

Ignore AIPAC at America’s Peril

What do Charles Freeman and Jane Harman have in common? Nothing, apart from the fact that they are both involved in the truly ugly side of the Israel lobby’s activity in the United States and, for that reason, had their stories dropped by the mainstream media in record time. Harman’s story broke on April 19 and was on life support by the 24th. Freeman’s story had slightly more legs to it only because his withdrawal from his nomination to head the National Intelligence Council on March 10 was preceded by a three-week barrage of vicious ad hominem attacks from the media and the usual suspects in Congress. After he resigned, his story was allowed to die, ending as far as the mainstream media was concerned on March 14 with a coup de grace from Republican Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia, who claimed in a Washington Post op-ed that the Israel lobby had nothing to do with his opposition to Freeman’s appointment. Wolf has reportedly received $72,000 from pro-Israel PACs, more than any other Virginia congressman except Eric Cantor, something that he chose not to mention.


Chinese Workers Urged to Puff up Economy by Smoking

CHINESE STATE employees are being asked to do their patriotic duty to support the local economy – by lighting up a cigarette. And no butts.

In Gongan county in Hubei province, the order has come down from above that employees of all local government departments, organisations, service centres and corporations must consume at least 23,000 cartons of cigarettes this year.

Illinois State Police Seize and Keep Desirable Cars for Personal Use

Illinois State Police troopers seized a high-performance muscle car and set it aside for the personal use of an influential police official. The Associated Press reported that a suspected drunk driver in a 2006 Dodge Charger was pulled over in January 2007. The troopers used a state seizure law to confiscate the vehicle.

Once the paperwork was complete, the 425-horsepower vehicle -- which had an as-new base price of $38,000 -- was handed over for the personal use of Ron Cooley, 56, the Executive Director of the Illinois State Police Merit Board. Taxpayers also pick up the fuel tab for gas-guzzling 6.1 liter V-8 as he drives to and from work each day and on various business trips.

A good relationship with the merit board is essential for any state trooper looking to move up into a position of responsibility.


US Patriot Act Used Against 16yr old Citizen

The family has been told they have no rights to see their child and, under the USA PATRIOT ACT, the child has no rights to even defend himself. They claim the Constitution does not apply to this 16 year old, natural born, American citizen.

Afghanistan's Only Pig Quarantined in Flu Fear

Afghanistan's only known pig has been locked in a room, away from visitors to Kabul zoo where it normally grazes beside deer and goats, because people are worried it could infect them with the virus popularly known as swine flu.

The pig is a curiosity in Muslim Afghanistan, where pork and pig products are illegal because they are considered irreligious, and has been in quarantine since Sunday after visitors expressed alarm it could spread the new flu strain.

Al Jazeera Strikes Back at Pentagon, Releases Unedited Footage of US Soldiers' 'Bible Study' in Afghanistan

Hours after Al Jazeera first broadcast a video showing US soldiers in Afghanistan being instructed by the military’s top chaplain in the country to “hunt people for Jesus” as they spread Christianity to the overwhelmingly Muslim population, the Pentagon shot back. It charged that Al Jazeera had “grossly misrepresent[ed] the truth.” Col. Greg Julian, told Al Jazeera: “Most of this is taken out of context … this is irresponsible and inappropriate journalism.”

Now, Al Jazeera and the man who filmed the controversial material are striking back. The network has just released unedited and unaltered footage (see below) of US soldiers in ‘bible study’ in Afghanistan. Jazeera describes it as “Extended footage shot by Brian Hughes, a US documentary maker and former member of the US military who spent several days in Bagram near Kabul.”


Merck Creates Fake Academic Medical Journal

There is very little about Big Pharma's manipulative, lies-as-marketing behavior that shocks me anymore, but this time out I am astounded: Merck has gone and created a fake academic journal, Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine, according to The Scientist. Merck products such as Fosamax were featured in "studies" in the journal, which is reportedly published by Elsevier, a well-known academic journal publishing house. Both it and Merck have got a lot of explaining to do.


Georgian Opposition: Saakashvili Staged Coup

Georgia's opposition claims President Mikheil Saakashvili staged an alleged coup plot to deter public attention from a domestic political turmoil.

"I have the impression this is nothing but a theatrical show staged by Saakashvili to distract people from the ongoing protests against his rule," AFP quoted opposition leader David Gamkrelidze of the New Rights party as saying on Tuesday.

The remarks came hours after the country's interior ministry announced the uncovering of a military coup plot and an assassination plan 'backed by Russia'.


The Myth of Talibanistan

Apocalypse Now. Run for cover. The turbans are coming. This is the state of Pakistan today, according to the current hysteria disseminated by the Barack Obama administration and United States corporate media - from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to The New York Times. Even British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has said on the record that Pakistani Talibanistan is a threat to the security of Britain.

But unlike St Petersburg in 1917 or Tehran in late 1978, Islamabad won't fall tomorrow to a turban revolution.

Senator Proposes Free Flu Shots for All Americans

A Democratic U.S. senator proposed on Friday setting up a free nationwide voluntary flu vaccination program to fend off future outbreaks of dangerous strains.
With the United States on alert for more cases of the new H1N1 swine flu virus, Iowa Senator Tom Harkin said the government should include funding for free vaccines for all Americans in the supplemental spending bill now moving through Congress.

"The harsh reality is that we have repeatedly experienced devastating flu pandemics," Harkin said in a statement.


Awww, aren't they s kind offering to vaccinate us all for free!!

Politics, Profits & Pandemic Fear Mongering

Are you grabbing your face mask, stocking up on food and Tamiflu, locking your doors and keeping your TV tuned to the news to find out just how bad the "swine flu pandemic" really is going to get? While Americans are being scared to death, few are noticing how much of their tax money politicians are giving to drug companies and government health officials to grease the skids to create more experimental flu vaccines and drugs and more effective ways to quarantine or force their mass use whenever a "public health emergency" is declared in the future.

Call me cynical but not clueless. The bird's eye view I have had for the past 27 years at the National Vaccine Information Center has taught me one thing: the global alliance between Big Pharma and Big Public Health is a prescription for disaster that could extend far beyond a bout with the flu.

Illegal Immigrants 'Would Cost £1 Million Each if Granted Amnesty'

The extra burden on the public purse is the "hidden cost" of unlawful migrants settling and starting families such as the potential drain on the benefits system, according to research by Migrationwatch.

And a similar drain could be felt by asylum seekers who are successful in their claims and allowed to settle here lawfully, the report said.

It means the country would face an eventual bill of up to £1 trillion if it had an amnesty.


Time to Say ‘No” to Israeli Fascism

Israel and her supporters are making rabid efforts to enhance the ugly image of the new Israeli government. That government, as we all know, is composed of manifestly fascist parties based on Jewish supremacy and racist disregard for the Palestinian people which has been on the receiving end of Zionist savagery and brutality for over sixty one years.

This month, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and his thuggish Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman are going to try to convince the leaders of western countries that Palestinians don’t really need freedom and liberty and human rights and that, like all animals, all they need is bread and some other food supplements.

Netanyahu, who is slated to visit Washington D.C. later this month, is a great believer in the "power of the Jewish mind." Hence, he thinks he will be able to convince President Obama that the most pressing priorities in occupied Palestine should be to achieve economic prosperity, not promote human rights, including the right to life, for the Palestinians.


Buying Brand Obama

Barack Obama is a brand. And the Obama brand is designed to make us feel good about our government while corporate overlords loot the Treasury, our elected officials continue to have their palms greased by armies of corporate lobbyists, our corporate media diverts us with gossip and trivia and our imperial wars expand in the Middle East. Brand Obama is about being happy consumers. We are entertained. We feel hopeful. We like our president. We believe he is like us. But like all branded products spun out from the manipulative world of corporate advertising, we are being duped into doing and supporting a lot of things that are not in our interest.


DHS Document Lists “Alternative Media” As Potential Terrorists

A new Homeland Security document that received little attention during last week’s swine flu coverage shockingly lists the “alternative media” with other radical extremist groups and implies that people who disagree with the mass media’s version of events are potential domestic terrorists.


Average Worker Pays £7.27 an Hour in Tax

The average worker paid £7.27 an hour in tax to the Treasury last year – more than the minimum wage and a 10 per cent increase on last year.


Former Police Officer Challenges Court Juristiction

On the day of April 20, 2009, a Free man on the land commonly known as Martin Earl: Fisher went to the business office of The Navajo County Court. I went to present the PERSON, a legal fiction which lives only in a fictional world of Legist Personas Case No. CR2009-0303, Navajo County, Arizona .

I, as an Agent of the PERSON had already served, via registered US Mail a NOTICE on the Judge that I reserved all of my rights and charged a fee of $2500 in Gold and silver coin of the united States for acting as Agent of the PERSON. I gave her 24 hours to reject my offer to serve as an agent over the account by dropping the charge with prejudice. If she did not, I would consider my offer accepted and fulfill the order to present the PERSON at a hearing.

The charge was taken to a grand jury who returned a true bill. The amount of my fee was about $50,000 Federal Reserve Notes, since us gold and silver coins can only lawfully be exchanged for face value of the coin.

I got no response, so my offer was accepted and my fee agreed to. (I will explain how I will collect later). BTW, the charge was for every order given that I chose to fulfill. Then I went on about the Law, her oath of office, blah blah, I am the master, she is the servant, blah blah. UCC, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED, COMMON LAW reservation of rights the works.

So, the man goes to court and the security guard gives me a piece of paper with some mumbo jumbo about how the hearing was not until next week. I took a blue pen, wrote on the paper, "ACCEPTED FOR VALUE RETURNED FOR VALUE BY: my signature, WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND REFUSAL FOR CAUSE FOR MARTIN E. FISHER" I gave it back to him and told him to give it to the judge.

A few min. later, another guard handed me a motion paper to fill out and submit so I could try to have the hearing today. I did not fill it out. Sovereigns do not PLEAD, they simply request and their servants fulfill the request (the Law of Kings). Lest you think I am boasting or Ego filled, you must remember everyone working for the Government is a SWORN PUBLIC SERVANT; it is their oath and duty to SERVE the public.

So, I notice that the name and case is marked out on the calendar, I go into the court room anyway. The so called Honorable judge walks in and everyone but me stands up. (Standing for another human is not equality; she does not stand when I enter the room). She is wearing her black Priest Robe, so the show begins. There are two armed bailiffs there just for little ole' me.

If you have never seen your Government in action, go to any court and watch the show. They always make the PERSON say their name and walk past the "BAR" (this is the act of getting on a ship, and subjecting your "PERSON" to Maritime Jurisdiction and leaving the land) Look at the Flag of any court room, it will have a gold fringe around it, this is a Maritime Flag or military Flag, it gives away the fact you are not on the land, but 'under' Admiralty jurisdiction and a passenger on a ship. The list of names and cases outside the court is a passenger list and ship manifest, just like the old days for getting on a ship. This is why, if you board the ship and complain about your "Constitutional Rights" the judge will give you a contempt charge. The Captain of the ship has control of the ship while on the water, the Constitution is the law of the Land, you just left the land if you gave your name, respond to any title (Mr. Mrs. DEFENDANT, whatever) or walked

past the BAR. You choose to get on the ship and surrender your Rights listed in the Constitution. We were magically transformed into a PERSON, not a man or a woman.

So, I go into court and the judge calls my persons name, I say "I am here on that NUMBER". The game starts, is your NAME MARTIN FISHER?

"I am commonly known as Martin Fisher" I do not go past the BAR and stay on dry land.

JP: "Is your name, MARTIN FISHER?"

"I am here to [re?]present, Martin Fisher."

JP: "OK, Mr. FISHER..."

"No ma'am, I am not a MISTER, I am a man, you can call me Martin."

JP: "The Bailiff will give this to MARTIN FISHER."

(He walks up and takes a paper from her and brings it toward me)

I ignore him and do not take the paper.

"Ma'am, you must not understand, I am not MARTIN FISHER and that paper does not have my name on it, I cannot accept it. On and for the record, do you have the right to tell me who I am?"

No reply to my question, instead, I get "Let the record show Martin is appearing for MARTIN FISHER (men and women cannot appear, only ghosts can) I interrupt her and say; "No, let the record show I am not appearing, I am here, a man standing on dry ground, you do not have jurisdiction over me, nor can you call me whatever you want."

She gets out this big book of STATUTES and says "Rule 9 of the criminal..." I don't even let her finish.

"Excuse me maim, is that a Statute you just quoted? Or is it a Law?" "On and for the record, if it is a Statute, it does not apply to me, as I am not under your Admiralty Jurisdiction, I have not entered into your jurisdiction, and you do not have my consent to bring me into your jurisdiction. "

"Now, judge, answer my question on and for the record, is that a Statute or a LAW?"

No answer, the book gets closed and the judge is now getting pissed.

"Again, on and for the Record, I am a man, standing on dry ground and a SOVEREIGN, statutes do not apply to me- do you on and for the record wish to dispute that? I am here for one reason, that is to challenge your jurisdiction, do you on the record want to claim you have jurisdiction over me, a sovereign man standing on dry land or not?"

She is literally forcing herself to keep her mouth closed. "I am telling the Bailiffs to remove Mr. Fisher from this hearing, it will continue without him." Two bailiffs, one on each side of me, armed with GLOCK pistols start telling me to leave the court room.




They continue to tell me to leave and the judge continues to talk, it was a mess, but I stood my ground. The Judge is dying to give me an order, but she KNOWS what that will cost (remember my fee of $2500 in Gold and Silver coin for every order I fulfill).

There is now another armed Sheriff in the room as well the 6 or 7 other people who have been there the whole time.

The Judge stands up and says "This hearing is adjourned!" the court recorder, and everyone else on her ship were taken aback by this and did not even have time to stand up before judge was out of the room.

I turned to bailiff and said "I will not leave this court until I choose to, in fact, I am going to sit right here, on this bench." I sat down and he is still telling me I have to leave. I tell him "The judge left the room it is now MINE. This is a court of the People, I am one of the people, she left the court room to me, since it is rightfully mine and she knows it, that is why she left and I am still here!"

After a few more educational moments with one of our public servants, he apologized and I told him there was no reason for that, I appreciated his professionalism and for not touching me.

I then told those left in my court room, "I am now leaving by my own choice." I steeled myself to walk out the door, fully expecting the scene from the MATRIX when NEO walks into the building to save Morpheus from the agents and SWAT team in black uniforms start shooting. But alas, nobody likes to play with me; I had a pleasant conversation with an old friend and left the building knowing I am a free man on the land. As I walked past the guard who was at the front door, I smiled and said "Damn it feels good to be a FREE-MAN!" to the rap cadence of `Damn it feels good to be a gangsta' because, you know, I am a 40 year old white guy and that's cool, right?

I swear the above to be true and recorded to the best of my memory, without prejudice and not legal advice. By: Martin Earl: Fisher.

Thank you "antiterrorist" , robert, sam, Lewis, et al! The truth shall set you free.

After a 1.5 years of hard study, prayer and several learning experiences, I think I got it!!!

Love and peace to all!

By the way, she is known as the toughest judge in the county! The hanging judge they call her, I hear. I guess what really made the difference was

1. I really practiced what I would say.

2. I served her with a hell of a fee schedule, 2500 in gold and silver coin at face value is about $50,000 US Federal Reserve Notes, for EACH ORDER, payable at time of service. Fasting and prayers did not hurt either. Thanks to the Creator for this information! !

Tomorrow, a bill will be served via Notary with a 72 hour pay deadline, then a certificate of non-response and collection charges of 2500 US Gold or Silver coin PER DAY until it is paid, plus collection charges as I see fit. If anyone like more details or where I got my info, I will be glad to share it here, as it was provided for me without charge or profit by my showers of the lawful path.

I really pushed, I was a police officer for 7 years, I know how to read people, she never directly confronted me, even with prolonged eye contact, when she did, she looked away quickly. I wanted to push the issue so I did. I do not recommend my approach for everyone.

The original charge against the person was 'driving on a suspended DL'. Given over 4 months ago, signed without prejudice. The next day, the agent went into the JP and rescinded the signature, the JP refused and called armed members of the Ex. Branch to remove the agent from the place of business. A failure to appear charge and warrant was put out for the person as well as an officer safety bulletin claiming that 'A notice was left on the step of the JP office, threatens the judge and is claiming he is a Sovereign entity and not subject to the laws of the land, is a martial arts and firearms expert use caution' Of course, nothing to id ME, just the person. *a note was written that the only proof of jurisdiction acceptable to take away my life, liberty or pursuit of happiness was death, so IF the JP had jurisdiction over my Creator endowed rights, he could come kill me and to 'put on your black dress and prove jurisdiction. ' It was not a threat, it was a

Later, several cops with rifles were waiting the JP court for me to show up, which I did not. After a long phone call with the local sheriff, the warrant quashed and the case remanded to the stuporior court.

The county here has a grand jury system, all charges are run by a GJ. So, they drop the original charge (since it was signed wit. prejudice) I guess and charged the PERSON again.

That led to the hearing for the person on the 20th. I have all documents relating to the incident.
