The Origins of American Decline in the Assassination og John F. Kennedy

The Warren Commission's official 'magic bullet' theory was cooked up to cover up the undeniable fact that the shot that killed JFK came from the front, the infamous grassy knoll where witnesses were photographed rushing up the knoll toward a leafy cover just behind the picket fence. Gerald Ford admitted to tampering with evidence while he was on the Warren Commission. In other words, Ford committed a federal crime the effect of which has kept the truth from the American people since 1963.
The initial draft of the report stated:
    "A bullet had entered his back at a point slightly above the shoulder to the right of the spine."
Ford wanted it to read:
    "A bullet had entered the back of his neck slightly to the right of the spine."
--Gerald Ford's Terrible Fiction
The murder of Lee Harvey Oswald by known mobster Jack Ruby was entirely too timely and convenient. It necessitated, perhaps by design, the creation of the Warren Commission which, in fact, facilitated and promoted the government's official cover story.

Israel's Hands Around Our Throat Are Showing

In the closing days of the Bush disaster Israel is moving to consolidate gains it has made over the past eight years toward its ultimate goals of “Greater Israel” and the Zionist-dominated new world order. The urgency of the hour for Israel can be seen in the open display of Jewish/Israeli political muscle-flexing in Washington. The normally invisible Israeli hand around America’s throat has been clearly visible lately, as America moved to take four specific actions on Israel’s behalf which will probably prove to be harmful to America’s interests, forcing a major expansion of the war on terror.

Beginning with House and Senate actions, quickly followed by Olmert’s restraint of Condoleeza Rice at the UN, then the hurried signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), our government has been very busy lately representing the state of Israel, in direct opposition to the will of the American people (judging by anti-Israel –vs- pro-Israel protests).

Why it was time for a Dem in the oval office

Obama_cartoon(2) The shadow government that controls both parties makes equal use of Democrats and Republicans. They need to continue to show some small degree of difference between the parties, to maintain the illusion of choice on election day. These small differences are played up as much as possible, while the huge areas of agreement are ignored.

People with a conscience generally see the Dems as the good guys and the Repubs as the bad guys. This is a particularly useful fiction at this point in history because so many progressives were distraught to the point of despair about the Bush administration. Some reason needed to be held out for hope, and indeed Obama's main theme was hope.

Millions of deluded Obama supporters wasted their energy on insuring Obama's election rather than working for true change at the top (that layer over the visible government). Millions more were pacified that change was on its way, and thus took no meaningful action. If throngs of citizens had descended upon Washington to protest:

  • the bailout,
  • or the shredding of the Constitution,
  • or illegal spying,
  • or torture,
  • or the members of the Bush administration ignoring congressional subpeonas to appear and answer questions,
  • or the obvious snow job from the FBI and DOJ framing Bruce Ivins for the anthrax attacks,
  • or the stationing of military troops in the US in violation of posse comitatus, a law prohibiting US military troops being used for domestic law enforcement--

If all that had happened, than even the corrrupt and complicit mainstream media might have a hard time keeping it a secret.

Obama Selects the Dead for Inaugural Ball


(From the Electric Kool Aid Acid Tests to the 09 inaugural, what a long strange trip it's been)

Just a week after confirming their first tour in five years, the reunited Dead are booked to rock the Mid-Atlantic Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C. on January 20th. “A DJ will open up — it’s a long, strange trip!,” Mickey Hart jokes to Rolling Stone (the DJ in question is celeb spinner DJ Cassidy). “[Barack Obama] picked us specifically,” he adds, “so it was quite an honor.

Another pitfall of political rocking: a background check. “It gave me pause when I had to get a security clearance to play a gig!” Hart says. So did they get past the security scan? “Oh, yeah, we don’t look so bad on paper. It’s not as bad as you might think.”

Zionist Jews - Godfathers of Terrorism
The British Mandatory Authority trained migrant Jewish youths in warfare skills and provided them with sophisticated arms ,tanks and planes while Arab homes and even mosques were searched for arms;
Arabs who had penknives with them were arrested like criminals and punished. The British hanged Arabs who dared to oppose the arrival of Jewish immigrants on the lampposts of Jerusalem as a means of crushing the protest. Therefore, the British crime against the Muslims did not start with Tony Blair's partnership in George Bush's crusade against Islam and Muslims under the guise of war on terror.

In the midst of this calamity, migrant Jews established terrorist brigades such as Hagana, Stern and Irgun under the leadership of Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir. Later these Jewish terror gangs embarked upon a bloody campaign of manslaughter to terrorise the Palestinians, drive them out from their homes and grab their lands while the powerful and well-organised international Zionist propaganda machine deceived the world by justifying these crimes as they are now doing to camouflage their barbarity in Gaza. Thus began organised Jewish violence that still reeks with the blood and butchery of the innocent hapless victims of the region.

Sarasota Florida Mini-Madoff -On the Lam

Seems like Arthur Nadel - of Scoop Management - aka the Sarasota Mini-Madoff - is on the lam. And if you are asking, yes, he is a Jew, and, "a prominent player in Sarasota's Jewish social and philanthropic circles." Sound familiar?

Arthur - come home and get a lawyer. The word on the street is that Obama is forgiving everyone... and moving on...Madoff is out on bail and word is he will never go to jail.

Leading French Anti-Zionist Blog Taken Down


The blogger known as Alkali on Le Fin has a gentle and very persuasive style. He had an english-language blog as well, that seems also to have fallen prey to -I’ll guess- the Israelis.

In memory here is a repeat of one of his classics, that originally appeared here:

"The Room in the Inn homeless shelter program, which houses up to 370 people, has been turning away 60-70 people each night because they're full"

Unless you're living somewhere else, you know that here in the Nashville area, we're currently colder than a northpole warlock's cajones in a brass jockstrap. Even my dogs, who spent several winters deep in the Sierra Nevada mountains with me, don't want much to do with the "outside" at the moment.

And if you're reading this, chances are you're probably someplace warm and toasty, like your house or apartment.

Now imagine for a moment that something had happened in your life that forced you out of your home and into the street. It's not as unlikely as you may think; just ask any one of the thousands of recently terminated or laid off folks who are teetering on the brink how quickly you can go from rich to poor, from housed to homeless.

State issues restraint rules for special ed students

photo

This is the door of a "seclusion box" that Sumner County schools used to isolate special education students who exhibited violent or disruptive behavior.

In Sumner County, children were being isolated in 4-by-3½-foot plywood boxes that were placed in 12 schools. A parent notified the state's Disability Law and Advocacy Center, which worked with the district to create what are known as calming areas to use when children get unruly. The boxes then were dismantled.

"We've had cases where children were put in locked closets — either the door was locked or objects were used to block the door," said Sherry Wilds, attorney for the Disability Law and Advocacy Center. "We've run into situations where restraint and seclusion were used inappropriately and sometimes to a dangerous level."

The report that highlighted the Sumner case, titled "School is Not Supposed to Hurt," was released last week by a group called the National Disability Rights Network.

Across the nation, the report said, 32 states have rules or laws of some sort that spell out use of restraint and isolation. But advocates say policies are either unclear or inadequate.

FTC, Schools and the Dairy Industry Partner to Prey on Children of Color

The dairy industry has distributed educational materials to schools about nutrition, fitness, wellness, and other aspects of child or teen development; often, these materials were branded or promoted particular products or nutritional icon programs. Educational materials were sometimes accompanied by premiums, such as branded pencils, posters, activity sheets, or soccer balls.

Milk marketers examined the appeal of certain media and the potential success of advertising initiatives (e.g., cross-promotions and licensed characters) among Hispanic, African-American, and Asian segments of the population, and among grade school boys as compared to girls.
Hundreds of thousands of schools across America only receive reimbursement from the National School Lunch Program when they push milk and life-size Milk Mustache and "Body By Milk" posters adorn their lunchroom walls.

This is the same NSL program that served-up 143 million pounds-- at risk for mad cow disease--of downer dairy cows to children as documented in the January recall of "beef" supplied by Westland Hallmark who won awards as the #2 supplier to the school lunch program.

Government Estimates 1 in 200 U.S. Kids are Vegetarian

For the first time ever, the government wants to know how many children are vegetarian. The recent federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study on kids that choose not to consume meat estimated that about 367,000, or 1 in 200, American children follow a meat-free diet. Other surveys suggest that those numbers may be even higher among teens and older children that have more control over what they eat. Previous surveys have found that vegetarians are most often female, from higher-income families, and living on the East or West coasts.

The Associated Press speculates that “adolescent vegetarianism seems to be rising, thanks in part to YouTube animal slaughter videos that shock the developing sensibilities of many U.S. children.”

“Compassion for animals is the major, major reason,” said Richard Schwartz, president of Jewish Vegetarians of North America, an organization with a newsletter mailing list of about 800. “When kids find out the things they are eating are living animals — and if they have a pet….”

Israel suspended the 22-day Operation Cast Lead overnight in what it said was a unilateral decision. Diplomats had described the ceasefire as "shaky", but the Hamas announcement opened an opportunity for international efforts to turn parallel ceasefires into an armistice.

  1. "The Hong Kong Connection" is a legal thriller about a gutsy female attorney who takes on high ranking International officials. It's a taut, rollercoaster of a ride from New York to Palm Beach to Washington D.C. to Hong Kong. The plot is expertly woven, the characters persuasive, and the dialogue snappy and spot on.
